What ever it might be but what is there to get scared. You should be more focused on going for regular follow-up with the doctor and follow the instructions. The focus should be to have safe and healthy pregnancy and normal delivery as far as possible. Avoid unnecessary worrying and be positive. Get your doubts cleared by your doctor during the regular visits.

I took the Emergency pill approximately 2 months back. Prior to this, I had taken it twice before due to various reasons in a span of 1 year. My period was about two weeks delayed. I had an extremely light period, which is unusual. After this, I have not gotten my period so far. Is it due to the excess of hormones due to repeatedly taking the pill that this has happened? Is there any way to fix the problem?

It all depends what tablets you are taking. Some tablets can cross placenta and affect your baby badly but some may not. Again, vitiligo is not transmitted from mother to child.

Was masturbation right way to control? should I continue I or not?

it's safe as long as your comfort level is there, however since your abdominal size is growing,in the coming days you might feel more uncomfortable,which may lead to untoward effect, so suggest you switch to a western style toilet ,or get a chair with a hole in the centre,which can be placed on squat seat of Indian toilet,these are easily available in the market. Sometimes the head of the baby comes very low in the pelvic girdle in which case safety issues of the baby crops up, as you are aware prevention is better than cure,so ideally one should avoid all those issues which makes you uncomfortable.

Am 31 weeks pregnant. I have gestation diabetes. Pls tel me proper and healthy diet plan.
Here's a sample vegetarian meal plan if you have gestational diabetes. However, a customised diet plan works best. This is because it is based on your weight, height, activity levels, stage of pregnancy and your glucose levels. You can try different variations of this sample meal plan to keep your taste buds happy. Early Morning (between 6 AM – 7 AM) A glass of milk (250 ml approx.) without sugar with 20gm roasted gram Breakfast (between 8 AM – 9 AM) A cup of milk (approx. 150 ml) without sugar and two whole wheat bread slices with 50gm cottage cheese (paneer) or one boiled egg / two vegetable stuffed chapattis with a bowl of curd / two small dosas or four idlis with sambhar. Use only 1 tsp of oil for cooking. Mid Morning (11 AM) One medium-sized fruit (150 gm approx.) such as guava, pear, plum, apple, sweet lime (musambi), peach or jamun. Lunch (between 1 PM to 1:30 PM) Start with one quarter plate of salad (cucumber, tomato, carrot, radish), one or two bowls of seasonal vegetable, one bowl of dal, about 150 ml (1 cup) curd, three chapattis / two chapattis and 3 tablespoons of rice. Use about 2 tsp of oil when cooking the lunch. Evening (4 PM) A cup of milk without sugar or lassi Evening Snack (6 PM) A bowl of sprouts with vegetable juice or soup. Dinner (8 PM – 8:30 PM) Similar to lunch. But you can try different dishes to add variety to your meals. For example, you can take cottage cheese with peas (matar paneer), mixed vegetable, soya nuggets curry, whole moong dal, masoor daal, or black chick pea gravy, green beans and carrots and so on. Use about 2 tsp of oil for cooking dinner. Bed Time 1 glass milk (250 ml approx.)/ 1 cup milk (150 ml approx.) with one small sized fruit (150 gm approx.)

Pain in breasts just before the periods is normal but it completely disappears after periods. But if there is any swelling or lump get yourself examined. Most often pain is due tohormonal changes.

Know Everything About ECMO - Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation

M.Ch. CVTS
Cardiologist, Ahmedabad
Know Everything About ECMO - Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation

How many of us have heard about Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) before Tamil Nadu, Chief Minister late J Jayalalithaa was put on it for recovery? Hardly a handful. Patients who are placed on the device have 50-50 chance of survival and while it could not help the late Chief Minister, her condition put a spotlight on ECMO.
 
What is ECMO?
ECMO is a life support device that is put in place when a patient’s heart and lungs stop functioning completely post a cardiac arrest. When the patient does not respond to Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR), the patient is put on ECMO.  
 
Function of ECMO 
The core function of the device is to separate carbon dioxide from the blood and add oxygen into it. It takes the load off from heart and lungs, providing critical time to the body organs for its treatment and recovery.

Patients are only put on ECMO, if there is a chance that the condition can be reversed. 
 
How does ECMO work? 
The device drains blood from a vein, which is attached to an oxygenator machine. The machine then removes carbon dioxide from the blood and adds oxygen to it. Depending upon the condition of the patient, the warmed blood is either pumped into the body with the help of the machine or made to get back to the body through an artery.
 
How long can a patient be on ECMO?

  1. After seven days of being put on ECMO, there are chances of patient getting an infection.
  2. In case the patient contracts an infection, it is recommended to take the patient off ECMO support. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a cardiologist.

Top Causes of Hair Loss and Hair Thinning in Women

Top Causes of Hair Loss and Hair Thinning in Women

For women, hair are not just fibres, but an expression of beauty, style, and personality. Losing your hair can really freak you out. Whether it's short-term or long-term, women lose hair the same way men do. It might thin all over, or your centre part could get wider and wider.

How Does Hair Grow?
Your scalp has about 1,00,000 hair. Each one has its own life cycle. A follicle produces a single hair that grows at a rate of half an inch per month. It stays for 2 to 6 years, then stops for about a month. When the next cycle starts up, that hair falls out. At any given time, most of your hair are in the growth phase.

How Much Hair Loss Is Normal?
Most people shed about 50-100 hair every day. But if it starts to fall out in clumps or if you notice it getting thinner over time, see a Dermato-Trichologist.

Major Hair Loss Triggers in women:

  • Thyroid Problems: If the thyroid makes too much or too little thyroid hormone, you may develop progressive thinning of hair all over the scalp.
  • PCOS: In polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), your body makes more male hormones, or androgen, than it should. This can cause the extra hair on your face and body while the hair on your head thins out.
  • Childbirth: Hair seems fuller during pregnancy because high hormone levels keep resting hairs from falling out. But after the baby comes, things go back to normal and those strands will fall out quickly. You could lose a lot of hair at once.
  • The Pill: The hormones that suppress ovulation can also thin out your hair. You can also lose hair when you stop taking the pill.
  • Medicines: Drugs like blood thinners, methotrexate, cholesterol lowering medications, chemotherapeutic agents, anti-depressants etc. can cause hair loss and thinning.
  • Crash Diets: You may lose more than weight with a fad diet. And if you lose weight more rapidly, you might also lose hair in a couple of months.
  • Deficiency: A longstanding deficiency of Iron, Folic acid, and other nutrients can also trigger off hair loss and cause hair thinning.
  • Tight Hairstyles: Wearing tight ponytails can irritate your scalp and cause hair to fall out. Long-term use of these styles can scar your scalp and lead to permanent hair loss.
  • Cancer Treatment: Chemo and radiation therapy, can take a toll on your hair. In their quest to kill cancer cells, both can harm hair follicles and trigger dramatic hair loss.
  • Extreme Stress e.g. a serious illness, major surgery, trauma involving blood loss, severe emotional disturbance etc., can cause you to suddenly shed huge amounts of hair.

Hope this gives you a fair idea about the possible reasons for losing your lovely hair. The good news is, there's often a way to fix it. You can consult me for if you are losing hair and need a solution for the same.

Technology - A Boon Or Bane?

Technology - A Boon Or Bane?

Technology may be a boon for your love life as due to technology a number of means of communication have evolved, which keep you connected with your loved one in the form of devices, software and applications. However, in spite of it’s benefits, there are plenty of things that come with technology, which can completely ruin your love life. Here are some signs that technology may be creating trouble in your paradise: 

  1. You may waste your time checking photos of ex-girlfriends and love interests. You may check out a picture of an ex on her Facebook profile and wonder about a new guy present in the picture. The same may happen with a present lover. These activities create unnecessary complications in your mind which may harm your relationship with your partner. 
  2. You end up spending more time with your smartphone than with your partner. This may affect your relationship, as you are too engrossed with checking social media websites and posting updates instead of paying attention to your partner, who is right by your side. 
  3. Texting is a common trend in today's world where the exchanging of nude photos between a couple takes place via messengers and chatting platforms. This can be frenetic as you may always be concerned about your pictures getting leaked or exposed. 
  4. You may become technologically clingy. Your partner might have texted you to which you have not been able to reply in spite of reading the text. Modern technology enables a person to see when you have read their message and when there is no response, the speculations creep in. These situation lead to host of other problems that perturbs you. 
  5. It is easy to lie about something online or via texting than saying it face to face. Technology allows you to lie and make false statements, which are not true in real life. This creates dishonesty within a relationship. 
  6. With technology, you have an array of options at hand and this makes situations ponderous. In case you want to go for a dinner with your partner, you might spend hours searching for a good restaurant by going through the ratings online. 
  7. You may spend a lot of time deciphering text messages. Modern day texting is full of abbreviations, short forms and emoticons. Some of these may make you over think stuff, and you may try to decipher meanings from normal texts, which actually have no twisted meaning. 
  8. With so many forms of social media, you may be confused about what to use at which stage or phase. You may think whether you should text first, should you add an interest on Facebook and should you comment on a picture. All this creates confusion and honestly there is no real conversation between you and your partner. There is no doubt that modern technology has taken the level of communication to a new level. 

Technology plays significant role in keeping in touch with your friends and loved ones sitting thousands of miles away by bringing them close. But it is high time that you realize that technology is something that is driving you away from your loved one. Make an attempt to have some personal conversations without your phones, laptops and tablets. Watch a movie, go on long drives or late night walks and reignite the love and passion in your relationships.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

The main thing I want to know is when the semen or vaginal fluid enters into the penis I will release it or not? Will I know it or not? I wore condom and after opening the condom dint see anything it was dry. The second it is inserted into the vagina the virus attacks the penis or it takes time?

Definitely you should be able to see your own ejaculate inside the condom, perhaps you have retrograde ejaculation problem. Is this the first time or does it always happen? You must consult a certified competent sexologist at the earliest even if it is online. All the best.
