To get pregnant you need to have regular sex i. E. 3-4 times a week for one full year before you start seeking medical help. If you want to make her pregnant fast then you can follow this calender method. If a women’s menstrual cycle varies from 26days to 31days cycle, The shortest cycle (26 days) minus 18 days = 8th day. The longest cycle (31 days) minus 10 days=21st day Thus, 8th to 21st day of each cycle counting from first day of menstrual period is considered as fertile period. Mango and hukkah does not affect anyone's chance of getting pregnant.

Sometimes there's premenstrual engorgment of the breast which can be painful wait till you finish your periods and if it doesn't subside by then it will be advisable to consult a gynaecologist and get it clinically examined also use a well fitted bra they will help you to decrease pain.

Hi, I'm 24 years old. Actually i'm not having my periods since last six months. i'm having hairs on my face as well as i'm gaining weight too. I have consulted a doctor here. She gave me cystop and evecare syrup. But she was not attending me well. So I changed my doctor. She has recommended to have regestrone 5 mg and ovabless. I have gone through net and found cystop is used for curing insulin resistance which is main cause of PCOS. Can I take cystop too with these two medicine. I'm just fed up of increasing weight. Please advise.

If painless bleeding then its normal but if, she feel severe pain during menses then it may be due to pelvic infection or pelvic pathological disease. So, get an ultrasound of lower abdomen.

Investigation is must for diagnosis and treatment. Some time it takes time to adjust the hormone. If she's not gaining excessive wt abnormal hair growth no need to worry.

Hello, having similar bld grps does not cause any probleems in pregnancy. The chance of you conceiving per cycle is about 20-30% even if everything is normal, so do not stress out. Make sure you do not put on any weight. If you do not conceive in another 6 months or so you cud see a gynaec who cud then run some tests.

I am 28 years old. I'm trying to get conceive, but twice I had abortion and a tubal pregnancy. Also I'm having continuous back pain on my right side and getting white discharge with bad smell. My right tube was removed and tried for 2 iui but failed. Doctor gave tablets for infection, but when I stop taking tablets I'm getting infection again and unable to be contact. I'm facing this problem for a long while. Do I have any remedy? Do I am fit for doing ivf with this infection and white discharge?

Infection needs to be tottaly treated before ivf is done. Also, your doctor should treat your partner for infections simultaneously with you. Next thing is a torch test should be done and treatment be done if torch infection is seen in reports. Get a thorough screening done before planning for ivf.

A Guide To Hormone Therapy Post Hystectomy

MS- Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Delhi
A Guide To Hormone Therapy Post Hystectomy

A hysterectomy is the removal of the uterus and is often accompanied by the removal of the ovaries. In such cases, women are said to experience surgical menopause. This is because the ovaries are the main producers of estrogen. Surgical menopause is usually more severe than natural menopause as there is a sudden drop in estrogen levels. Estrogen is responsible for a number of functions that affect the brain, bones, skin, heart and blood vessels.

Hormone therapy is often advised to counteract this loss of estrogen.

There are two main types of Hormonetherapy:

  1. Hormone therapy with estrogen and progestin
  2. Hormone therapy with only estrogen

The former is advisable for women suffering from surgical menopause. Like any other form of treatment, it has its pros and cons.

Pros

  1. It protects young women from diseases associated with menopause: A hysterectomy is usually performed on women under the age of 50. In such cases, Hormone replacement therapy can protect the women from heart diseases. Removing ovaries before menopause can also increase the risk of Parkinson's disease and dementia.Hormone replacement therapy can help negate these risks.
  2. Reverse menopausal symptoms: Menopause is associated with a number of symptoms such as vaginal dryness, hot flashes and insomnia. Hormone replacement therapy can help treat these symptoms and give you a better quality of life.
  3. Other health benefits: Hormone replacement therapy can also help fight osteoporosis and strengthen bones. It is also known to reduce the risk of colorectal cancer.

Cons

  1. Side effects: Hormone replacement therapy interferes with the natural Hormone production. Thus, it can cause a number of problems such as premenstrual syndrome, swollen breasts, headaches and nausea.
  2. Increased risk of health issues: Though the odds are low, Hormone replacement therapy can increase your risk of having a stroke or heart attack. It has also been suggestively linked to breast cancer and ovarian cancer.

Thus, the choice of whether to have or not to have Hormone replacement therapy after surgical menopause is not easy to make. You must consider factors such as your age, lifestyle, family medical history and habits while making this decision. Do not rush into a decision and take your time. Talk to your doctor about the amount of medication needed and the delivery method most suited to you. Hormone replacement therapy can be taken in the form of pills, a patch, gel, vaginal cream or a slow releasing suppository. This should  also be accompanied by a healthy lifestyle that includes a healthy diet and plenty of exercise.

Hi. Avoid taking over the counter medications or self medication. As you are pregnant it is better to be under guidance of a gynecologist. Go to one in your area and get yourself examined.

Poly cystic overy syndrome or PCOD is mainly a problem related to harmone (excess production of androgen in females) which leads to varierty of signs and symptoms. It manifest as number of small cysts in the ovaries, menstrual irrgularties such as irregular, delayed or no menstrual cycles, obesity and weight gain, acne and excess growth of facial and bodily hairs at the same time hair fall on scalp, in the same pattern which occures in males (Hirsutism) and insulin resiistance are some of the common one. PCOD is curable in Homeopathy but you have to be little patience as treatment of PCOD is takes little time to cure. Conventional method of treatment hardly have any cure for PCOD. Homeopathy offers the best alternative because Homeopathy focuses on treating the root cause of the problem without any side effects. Along with Homeopathic medicines whatever she is using I will suggest her followings lifestyle modifications: 1.Avoid eating non veg completely. 2.Take less of Urad dal items such as idli, vada etc 3.can start taking walnut or flax seeds 4.take green tea on daily basis 5.start doing some de stressing activity daily for at least 10-15 minutes.
