Dear mam, Is it possible for a girl to regenerate back its hymen if it once broken? Is it necessary that a girl should bleed when she is having the sex with his life partner?

No the girl cannot regenerate her hymen. If hymen is intact the girl will bleed with first intercourse. There r lots of reasons for hymen to break without intercourse eg rigourous exercise, cycling and masturbation.

Hi lybrate-user Sad to hear about your daughter's condition. These medications are given for treatment of persistent bronchial asthma. Looks like her asthma symptoms get worse during PMS and periods. Asthma symptoms can start to worsen anywhere from four days before menstruation through the last day of your period. This is most common in women with severe asthma. You can treat her for asthma and meet an allergist doctor. You may follow the following: If your asthma is particularly bothersome just before or during your period, there are steps you can take to help head off an asthma attack. Write a diary. Write down details about your daughter's asthma symptoms throughout the month and compare them to the pattern during her menstrual cycle. This can help determine if there’s a relationship between your asthma and your periods. Bring the diary to appointments with your allergist. Talk to your doctor. If your asthma symptoms consistently worsen around your period, discuss possible remedies with your doctor. Your doctor may recommend increasing preventive medication during this time of the month. This will save hospitalisation every time. Consider hormone therapy. Manipulating the timing of menstruation with artificial hormones may help. Some women who have asthma attacks right before or during their period can benefit from hormone therapy. If you are pre-menopausal, this may mean taking birth control pills, wearing a patch, or getting injections. In a recent study of menstruating women 28 to 58 years old, asthma symptoms improved for the women taking oral contraceptives. Avoid triggers. Be particularly diligent about avoiding anything that could set off an asthma attack in the days before and during your period. Common asthma triggers include cold air, exercise, pollutants, dust, and smoke, including second-hand smoke from being around smokers. Taking aspirin can also trigger an asthma attack in some women. Be prepared. At the very least, be sure you have your rescue inhaler with you at all times on the days before and during your daughter's period.

There is no need to stop dals in gout. Vegetable sources do not increase uric acid. Its a widespread misconception.

My son is 2 yrs old . He is having my feed till now . Now i want him to feed not any more bt my breast are full of milk and if i dont feed him i feel sever pain in my breasts . Wt should i do ?

Pediatrician, Mumbai
You should stop breastfeeding him and put him on cows milk along with regular diet for age . You will continue to produce breast milk since you have been breast feeding him , hence the pain if you dont express the milk . You can take bromocriptine 2.5mg twice daily for 15 days to suppress milk production . You may take paracetamol 1 tab if pain is severe and also apply hot fomentation to breast . However , bromocriptine causes nausea , so you may need to take some anti acids like Pan 40. 1 tab for 10 days to counter that.

Stay Alert Stay Alive

Head injuries may happen because of fall, accidents, while playing sports or physical assault. It may be serious or minor. 
Minor one can be attended at home but serious injuries require immediate hospitalisation.
The crucial part is how to provide a person with serious head injury first aid or an aid which a person requires before reaching hospital.
First for all practical reason treat the injury as a spinal one and keep the body and head straight, if the person is unconscious check his pulse, if necessary provide cpr, tie the wounded portion with clean piece of cloth. If it gets filled with blood, don't remove it. Tie another one. If possible apply ice to swollen area.
Remain in touch with emergency rescue team stationed at the hospital.

General Physician,
In absence of any serious disease esr increases with anaemia. So check the haemoglobin. Your prolactin level is high. Are you breast feeding your baby? this high level shall produce milk secretion and also shall have delayed period. Your s testosterone level is well within normal limit.

HIV/AIDS Practice safer sex

HIV/AIDS  Practice safer sex
Safer sex

Taking simple steps to prevent getting or spreading HIV will pay off both for you and for those you love. The only 100 percent effective way to prevent the spread of HIV through sex is to abstain — to not have sex of any kind. If you do have sex, practice safer sex methods. These are the steps you can take to help prevent HIV infection from sex:

Abstain from sex. Not having vaginal, anal, or oral sex is the surest way to avoid HIV. If you do decide to have sex, you can reduce your risk of HIV by practicing safer sex.
Get tested. Be sure you know yours and your partner's HIV status before ever having sex.
Use condoms. Use them correctly and every time you have sex. Using a male condom for all types of sex can greatly lower your risk of getting HIV during sex. If you or your partner is allergic to latex, use polyurethane condoms. If your partner won't use a male condom, you can use a female condom. It may protect against HIV, but we don't have much evidence that it does, so it is better to use a male condom, which we know has a high rate of preventing HIV infection. Do not use a male and female condom at the same time. They do not work together and can break. "Natural" or "lambskin" condoms don't protect against HIV. Condoms are easy to find, and some places give them out for free. Contact your local health department or a health clinic for information about places in your area that may give away free condoms. For instance, the New York State Health Department offers a cellphone app that can help youth find free condoms in their area.
Talk with your partner. Learn how to talk with your sexual partner about HIV and using condoms. It's up to you to make sure you are protected. Remember, it's your body!
Practice monogamy (be faithful to one partner). Being in a sexual relationship with only one partner who is also faithful to you can help protect you.
Limit your number of sexual partners. Your risk of getting HIV goes up with the number of partners you have. Condoms should be used for any sexual activity with a partner who has HIV. They should also be used with any partner outside of a long-term, faithful sexual relationship.
Use protection for all kinds of sexual contact. Remember that you don't only get HIV from penile-vaginal sex. Use a condom during oral sex and during anal sex. Dental dams also can be used to help lower your risk as well as your partner's risk of getting HIV during oral-vaginal or oral-anal sex.
Know that other types of birth control will not protect you from HIV. Other methods of birth control, like birth control pills, shots, implants, or diaphragms, will not protect you from HIV. If you use one of these, be sure to also use a male condom or dental dam correctly every time you have sex.
Don't use nonoxynol-9 (N-9). Some contraceptives, like condoms, suppositories, foams, and gels contain the spermicide N-9. You shouldn't be using gels, foams, or suppositories to prevent against HIV — these methods only lower chances of pregnancy, not of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs). N-9 actually makes your risk of HIV infection higher, because it can irritate the vagina, which might make it easier for HIV to get into your body.
Get screened for STIs. Having an STI, particularly genital herpes, increases your chances of becoming infected with HIV during sex. If your partner has an STI in addition to HIV, that also increases your risk of HIV infection. If you have an STI, you should also get tested for HIV.
Don't douche. Douching removes some of the normal bacteria in the vagina that protects you from infection. This can increase your risk of getting HIV.
Don't abuse alcohol or drugs, which are linked to sexual risk-taking. Drinking too much alcohol or using drugs also puts you at risk of sexual assault and possible exposure to HIV.
Take time to talk before having sex

Talking about sex is hard for some people. So, they don't bring up safe sex or STIs with their partners. But keep in mind that it's your body, and it's up to you to protect yourself. Before having sex, talk with your partner about his or her past and present sexual behavior and HIV status, and talk about using condoms and dental dams. Ask if he or she has been tested for HIV or other STIs. Having the talk ahead of time can help you avoid misunderstandings during a moment of passion. Let your partner know that you will not have any type of sex at any time without using a condom or dental dam. If your partner gives an excuse, be ready with a response.

one thing for sure is that there was interval growth despite of discharge so I think there is probability of appearance of heartbeat. it appears around 6 weeks in transvaginal scan. may be in your case there was delay in ovulation so heartbeat may appear late .Baby s heartbeat may appear in a week in your case but to avoid unnecessary anxiety they might have said 2 weeks. regarding bleeding that may be due to hormones. If it still persists even later in pregnancy then chances of prematurity are there.
