She is heading toward menopause. Before menopause, she may have huge and irregular bleeding even before her due date. She may also have fibroid in her uterus. She should get her ultrasound done to confirm or rule out fibroid. Oral contraceptives courses (containing oestrogen and progesterone) taken 3-4 month may regularise her menses as well as can diminish bleeding amount but at this age oestrogen may cause cancer, therefore are not given. Gynae CVP capsules, 1 cap taken 3 times dailystarting 2 days before menses till menses stop may decrese bleeding amount by 50-60%. So she may tale these capsules under medical supervision.

Zika virus

BHMS
Homeopath
Ask Free Question
Symptoms of zika virus:

About 1 in 5 people infected with zika virus become ill (i. E, develop zika).

The most common symptoms of zika are fever, rash, joint pain, or conjunctivitis (red eyes). Other common symptoms include muscle pain and headache. The incubation period (the time from exposure to symptoms) for zika virus disease is not known, but is likely to be a few days to a week.

The illness is usually mild with symptoms lasting for several days to a week.

Zika virus usually remains in the blood of an infected person for a few days but it can be found longer in some people.

Severe disease requiring hospitalization is uncommon.

Deaths are rare.

Diagnosis

- The symptoms of zika are similar to those of dengue and chikungunya, diseases spread through the same mosquitoes that transmit zika.

- See your healthcare provider if you develop the symptoms described above and have visited an area where zika is found.

- If you have recently traveled, tell your healthcare provider when and where you traveled.

- Your healthcare provider may order blood tests to look for zika or other similar viruses like dengue or chikungunya.

Treatment

- No vaccine or medications are available to prevent or treat zika infections.

- Treat the symptoms:

- Get plenty of rest.

- Drink fluids to prevent dehydration.

- Take medicine such as acetaminophen to relieve fever and pain.

- Do not take aspirin and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (nsaids), like ibuprofen and naproxen. Aspirin and nsaids should be avoided until dengue can be ruled out to reduce the risk of hemorrhage (bleeding). If you are taking medicine for another medical condition, talk to your healthcare provider before taking additional medication.

My girlfriend and I (18 years old) were fooling around sexually and I took my cloths off and she was in her underwear. My penis rubbed against her vagina several times but I did not ejaculate or penetrate. Plus I might have touched my penis while it was wet before pleasuring her vagina. We are scared that she might become pregnant and we can't buy control pills. It's been 2 days since that happened and she's not showing any signs.

Dear user. If your girl friend had her underwear ON, and you did not even enter your penis inside her vagina, there is no chance of pregnancy. Semen or pre-cum never travels through clothes. Don't panic. Take care.

Hi lybrate-user I suggest you should wait for next period and if that is also not normal then you need to go for some investigations for thyroid and usg abdomen. Right now you should wait as it might happen due to some temporary reasons.

What Is Skin Pigmentation? Ways to Get Rid of It

MD, D.V.D, MBBS
Dermatologist
Ask Free Question

Pigmentation of the skin is a medical term to refer to the phenomenon of colouring. Our skin is made up of cells that produce a pigment known as melanin. The colour of the skin largely depends upon the production of melanin. If more melanin is produced, the skin looks darker and vice-versa. When the melanin producing cells are damaged due to long exposure to sunlight, pregnancy or any other disease, pigmentation of the skin takes place. When the skin gets darker, it is called hyperpigmentation and when the discolouration of the skin takes place or white patches are formed on the skin, it is called hypopigmentation.

Skin pigmentation can be tackled by certain home based remedies. Here are some of these remedies:

  1. Milk and honey face pack: Milk is known to contain lactic acid. A mixture of milk and honey peels off the affected part of the skin. This makes the hyper-pigmented skin lighter in colour.
  2. Vegetable juices: Some vegetables like tomatoes, cucumber and potato are effective in getting rid of the skin pigments. Cut slices of these vegetables and rub them over the affected parts. The juices from these vegetables lighten the pigmented part.
  3. Avocado magic: It is advisable to peel off an avocado and apply its juice with honey over the affected area.
  4. Add Vitamin E to your diet: Include foods rich in vitamin E in your meals. It helps in restoring the pigmented skin back to its normal form.
  5. Face Mask: There are several face masks available that can work wonder in curing pigmentation of the skin. You can use face packs containing oatmeal, honey, sandalwood, turmeric powder, raw milk, and orange powder.
  6. Sun screen: It is important to guard your skin from the ultraviolet rays. UV rays lead to pigmentation of the skin. So, apply a sunscreen lotion or cream before stepping out of your home.
  7. Take up some exercise: A key to a healthy skin is a good lifestyle. One must exercise regularly to maintain proper blood circulation throughout the body. Proper flow of blood keeps the skin healthy and free from pigmentation.
  8. Avoid consumption of alcohol and cigarettes: The consumption of alcohol and cigarettes leads to generation of toxins in our blood stream. This is harmful for our skin.
  9. Cocoa butter: It has nourishing and de-tanning effects on the skin. Use a cream that contains cocoa butter extracts on daily basis.
  10. Oil massage: Certain oils like olive and almond are good for treating damaged skin.

Below given are some of the common products used in medical treatment of hyperpigmentation:

  1. IPL (Photofacial) - Treatment with intense pulsed light, or a Photofacial, is frequently recommended by doctors to treat hyperpigmentation.
  2. Chemical peel - A TCA peel or deeper phenol peel are also used to treat hyperpigmentation.
  3. Laser Peel - A variety of laser resurfacing treatments may be performed to reduce hyperpigmentation. CO2 lasers and fractional lasers are popular choices for skin resurfacing.
  4. Topical skin lightening products - Products containing skin lightening ingredients, such as hydroquinone, retinoids, kojic acid, and Vitamin C are often used to reduce hyperpigmentation.

Medical treatment is combined with procedures to get faster results.

Head down position is normal. Therefore I wouldn't worry too much. Just ensure you follow your doctor's advice and avoid undue stress, take adequate rest, drink enough water. See your Gynaecologist if you have any problems with discharge or bleeding or urinary symptoms

There are chances of pregnancy. Of you do not plan on pregnancy, it's better to always practice safe sex. Wait for periods. And one of you has to use contraceptive everytime. IPill is for emergency only. It is high dose, has side effects and is not 100% effective.

First, dont eat for 2. That is an old concept and the main cause for weight gain and loss of shape etc. Eat healthy foods, lots of fruits and vegetables. Have milk/curds. The first 3 months you may not feel like eating much, and that is ok. Eat when hungry and what you feel like. Avoid sweets, fried foods, cakes, bakery foods etc. Have them very occasionally. Finally have happy thoughts and positive thoughts about the outcome of the pregnancy. All will be fine.

Dear lybrateuser, you might be suffering from hormonal irregularity or pcod. Pl get the hormones tested and an ultrasound of uterus and overies done and contact again with reports. The condition can be treated medically without underging surgery.

If you are taking the pill regularly, chance of pregnancy very remote. The efficacy of pill is reduced if you are taking other medication like antibiotics along. Do not worry, continue your pills.

Hello there, 1) pcod is now called pcos. 2) pcod is caused by hormonal imbalance. 3) in pcod ovulation - rupture of follicles is restricted by hormone. 4) thus follicles are converted into ovarian cysts. 5) these cysts hijack hormones and stop menses. 6) this vicious cycle in pcod - pcos patient which leads to infertility. Scientific management of pcod - pcos by nap therapy & medicines:- 1) nap therapy medicines are non hormonal & non steroids thus very safe no side effects. 2) nap therapy medicines treatment course correct disease, root causes along its complications. 3) in 3-6 cycles most of the problem will be corrected. 4) natural ovulation will occur. 5) menses will be regular. 6) endometrium will become healthy. 7) all above factors helps to cure infertility. I strongly recommend nap therapy medicines treatment for infertility & pcod - pcos. Consult privately online-telephone-vedio or visit personally for proper management.
