5 Questions You're Too Embarrassed to Ask Your Gynecologist

5 Questions You're Too Embarrassed to Ask Your Gynecologist

No matter how outspoken you may be, something happens to us in a gynecologist's clinic. And though we have a million questions, most of them stay unasked. However, it is important to be frank and open with a gynecologist to ensure good sexual health. To make it a little easier, here are the answers to five embarrassing questions.

Is vaginal discharge normal?

A little vaginal discharge is a normal occurrence in all women. This discharge is a way for the vagina to cleanse itself. The amount of vaginal discharge varies from one woman to the next and also depends on your menstrual cycle. It is very easy to differentiate between healthy and unhealthy discharge by merely looking at it. Normal discharge is clear, whitish or light yellow. If your vaginal discharge is excessive or thick and odorous and accompanied by itching, you should see a gynecologist at the earliest.

Will hormonal birth control affect my libido?

Hormonal birth control affects each woman in a unique way. While for some it can cause weight gain, for others it can result in a weakened libido. This is because hormonal birth control suppresses ovulation and thus controls the production of natural hormones. If you feel your sex drive is being effected by your pills, talk to your gynecologist for alternative birth control techniques.

How can you make intercourse less painful?

Sex should be a pleasurable experience for both partners. However, sometimes, the act of penetration can cause discomfort to women. This is mainly because of a lack of lubrication that results from not being turned on enough or nervousness. You could experiment with lubricants and sexual positions to make this more comfortable. Also, go slow and take your time enjoying foreplay to stimulate your body.

Why is there an odor from my vagina?

Just because your vagina has a strange smell, it does not mean that something is wrong. The fluids in a woman's body are affected by a number of factors including her diet, hygiene, sexual activity and infections. Good hygiene habits can control most odor problems. If it persists, odor may be a sign of a yeast or bacterial infection and should be shown to a doctor immediately.

Why do I leak urine when I laugh or sneeze?

Many women after giving birth are subject to urinary incontinence. This is mostly due to weak pelvic floor muscles after pregnancy and a drop in estrogen in post menopausal women. Simple exercises can often help strengthen your pelvic muscles and hence prevent leaking. In more serious cases, a gynecologist will also be able to prescribe medication for the same.

No question is too silly or too embarrassing to ask a gynecologist. So, choose your gynecologist with care and ensure that you are comfortable discussing your intimate health with her.

Burning Pain or Tingling Sensation in Hands or Feet. What it is?

If you are suffering from burning pain or tingling sensation in hands or feet; sharp shooting pain in legs; numbness in hands or feet, then you might be suffering from Neuropathic pain.

Tingling sensation in feet

What is neuropathic pain

Neuropathic pain is a special type of pain which occurs when there is damage to nerve fibers,which produces tingling or burning type of pain.It is of two types:

1. Peripheral Neuropathic pain: It occurs when there is injury to peripheral nerve fibers (A-delta or C-fibers)which carries pain sensation to brain (Thalamus) for interpretation. 

2. Central Neuropathic pain: It occurs due to sensitization of central pain interpreting mechanisms (Thalamus) to falsely feel pain, when peripheral nerve fibers are no longer sending pain impulses to them.

Worldwide-estimates of prevalence of neuropathic pain are 7% i.e. 7 persons out of 100 people are suffering from different types of neuropathic pain.

Symptoms:

a.Tingling sensation or feeling of ants crawling under skin

b.Burning sensation

c. Sharp shooting pain or electric current-like sensation 

d. Stabbing pain

e. Dull pain with numbness or heaviness

Reasons for neuropathic pain:

1. Diabetes mellitus: Most common cause worldwide due to uncontrolled blood sugar levels, causing damage to nerve fibers.

2. Alcohol consumption/Cigarette smoking: Damage to nerve fibers or damage to blood vessels supplying nerve fibers.

3. Neck pain/Low Back pain/ Glutei pain

4. Vit. B12 deficiency

5. Chemotherapy for cancer patients

6. Post-Herpes virus infection

7. Post-Spine surgery

8. Post-Amputation

9. Diseases like Spinal cord injury,multiple sclerosis, HIV, Lead toxicity, etc.

Special Neuropathies:

a. Carpal tunnel syndrome: Tingling, burning sensation in hand which occurs due to compression of median nerve in wrist area. It occurs in women especially due to pregnancy, hypothyroidism,diabetes, etc. and in men due to improper position of wrist during working on computers.

b. Cervical Radiculopathy: Pain in neck and shoulder region (which increases with neck movements), along with sharpshooting pain radiating from neck to hand occurs in cases of cervical radiculopathy. This is due to compression of cervical nerve root by disc prolapse, facet subluxation, muscle spasm, trauma,etc.

c. Lumbar Radiculopathy: Pain in lower back or glutei region with sharp shooting pain radiating from hip to leg/foot region, occurs in cases of Lumbar radiculopathy or Sciatica. This is due to compression of lumbar nerve root or sciatic nerve by disc prolapse, facet joint, trauma, hypertrophied ligamentum flavum, piriformis syndrome, etc.

d. Meralgia paresthetica: Tingling or burning sensation in front of thigh, occurs due to compression of lateral cutaneous nerve of thigh, near waist region. Usual causes are tight or constrictive clothing at waist region, prolonged sitting, protuberant abdomen,etc.

Prevention of Neuropathy:

a. AVOID Alcohol consumption and cigarette smoking.

b. Maintain ideal body weight / BMI (Body mass index)

c. Life-style changes: Daily exercises (>30 minutes per day) or brisk walking or swimming; Avoid prolonged sitting or standing (>30 minutes).

Don't try self diagnosis. Consult a doctor and get examine and start therapy. Testicular cancer is very much curable, even in very late stage. So, don't waste time.

Sometimes my breasts pains sometimes its all ok. Is there anything to worry about. Is there any chance of breast cancer.

DGO, MBBS
Sexologist,
Sometimes my breasts pains sometimes its all ok. Is there anything to worry about. Is there any chance of breast cancer.
Breast pain is a common problem if it occurs before periods, because it happens due to hormonal changes, however if the pain stays all through the month or if you can feel some lump/swelling then you may need to do ultrasound examination of breasts. Wearing a well fitting bra may help. Though chance of cancer is very low yet you have to do ultrasound to be sure.

My friend: my breasts are little bit swollen, the difference between now and before is very minute. I had sex with my boyfriend on 31st December & 1st January. After that my menstrual cycle started on 14-16. That too went normal. Before the cycle I visited a physician for my 3 issues. First, feeling of nausea/ vomiting in the morning after waking up (this issue was continuing from last 3-4 months). Second, upset stomach which means I had difficulty in passing stools. Sometimes I used to force myself for passing the stool and all this while I had a very heavy stomach. Third, going to pee very frequently. This also was continuing from last 3-4 months. Now, I've been taking medicines for almost 10 days after which I've felt a sigh of relief but not about the feeling of nausea or vomiting after waking up in the morning. Also, there is burning sensation in the stomach which sometimes increases at times. Five tests were also done, none of them indicated any serious issue. Today when I was making out with my friend we noticed that my breasts are leaking with milk. We checked it was pale & off-white colored fluid which looked like milk to us. I certainly didn't miss my periods. Now at this point in time what I'm afraid of is pregnancy. Am I pregnant? How to be triple sure of it? What can be other signs of being pregnant by which I can be sure at home that I'm pregnant? Tests which were done earlier before around 10 days didn't indicate anything about pregnancy. Tests included blood test and urine test.

Do an ultrasound of whole abdomen. It will reveal if there is a fetus growing within the uterus as well as other intra abdominal causes for nausea. Like gall stone disease, pancreatic disease. Etc.

You didn't require ipill. Chances of pregnany are between 9 to 15th day of periods. Delay in menses may be because of hprmonal imbalance due to ipill. Be careful next time. All the best.

Hi i am 23 I have Pcos and last in 2014 December I conceived via hmg amd hcg shots but later during 7th month lost my pregnancy due to IUGR. Also I am having thyroid (normal now) Again I am trying to conceive. My doctor gave me clomifene citrate from day 3 to 7. Hmg injections on day 3 and 5. On day 11 I was having a 16mm follicle in right ovary and 19mm ovulated follicle in left. (Ovulation occurred from left ovary without hcg) I want to know if 16mm follicle will rupture at the same time or within 24hrs of each other? My doctor said there are chances of 16mm follicle to rupture till next day. Is it possible?

MBBS, DGO, MD, Fellowship in Gynae Oncology
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Exactly it cannot be said that when it will rupture, it is possible that it may rupture the next day or on the same day. But in both the cases there are chances of pregnancy so you need not to worry for that. If you are going for iui then do it twice for consecutive days, or going for natural then then regular intercourse for 3-4 days.

Can I conceive just after my periods I want to conceive from 4th day of my period.Please tell.
Calender method you can practice to get pregnant fast. If a women’s menstrual cycle varies from 26days to 31days cycle, The shortest cycle (26days) minus18days=8th day. The longest cycle (31days) minus 10days=21st day Thus, 8th to 21st day of each cycle counting from first day of menstrual period is considered as fertile period. Fourth day of menses you r highly unlikely to get pregnant as ovulation occurs in the middle of the menstrual cycle.

It is Just a Finding. If there are no symptoms , just ignore it. Intra hepatic ducts are pipes so tiny to carry bile to gall bladder, bile is made by liver and gall bladder is below liver. it can have stones along with dilatation. if no stone and only dilatation , you have no reason to worry.

My mother of age 51 is suffering fron nerve disorder. She can not sleep at night if she starts pondering on something...
At 51, probably your mother is having hormonal changes due to menopause, that means periods stop suddenly or start getting less with time to stop altogether. Bones become brittle due to less calcium, heart is prone to attacks, slight weight gain is noticed & mood changes is part of menopausal syndrome which is a combination of all of the above/ one of above and for lucky woman none of the above. If nerve disorder is a physical problem, do consult a neurologist but if she complains about aches here and there, she needs counselling. It is also due to empty nest - means children are grown up and are occupied in their own lives, the group of women affected person interacts with have same problems to share. Remember you want her to live 90 +, this is middle age for her! keep her occupied according to her capacity to work and the talents she has. Give her calcium tablets like shelcal / 1 per day plus toned milk and curds, lemon juice for vitamin c, lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, no oily and heavy foods, simple exercise like long walks, keep blood pressure and sugar under control, no sleeping or anti anxiety pills. Do get back and tell us about her progress.
