Medicinal drugs like ibuprofen, aspirin or naproxen can be taken to reduce mentsrual pain and cramps. The ones with regular menstrual cycle can consider taking them one day before the period starts, to avoid natural discomfort during menstruation.

Hello, I am 36 years old female and I have high blood pressure problem. And lots of stress. Please suggest any yoga.
Dietary and other lifestyle changes can help you control and prevent high blood pressure. Eating a diet that is rich in whole grains, fruits, vegetables and low-fat dairy products and skimps on saturated fat and cholesterol can lower your blood pressure by up to 14 mm hg. This eating plan is known as the dietary approaches to stop hypertension (dash) diet. Get plenty of potassium, which can help prevent and control high blood pressure. Eat less saturated fat and total fat. If you're overweight, losing even 3 kgs can lower your blood pressure. Strive for at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day. I being a both a registered dietitian (rd) and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications. I will also suggest home remedies. Do reply back for private consultation for rx.

Fibroadenoma is mostly harmless and once removed there is no problem. Person may feel pain locally at operates site for some time. Normally you don't require any thing but if you feel pain is more and it's regularly present, then get yourself checked by doctor.

Hello, Avoid sex completely hence till 16 weeks gestation for chances of threatened abortion and also after 34 weeks to decrease chances of preterm labour and infections after PPROM. So you may practice from 16th -33rd week of pregnancy and with man on top or side to side positions, which are generally comfortable to the woman. Regards

This condition is termed as AMENORRHOEA. Is this first time you are experiencing such problem or you are facing irregular and late periods problem since long time as Amenorrhoea at your age (other than Pregnancy) can be due Hormonal imbalance (HIB) and there are many reasons for HIB and few important ones are------------------ 1. Lifestyle---- •extreme weight loss or weight gain •excessive exercise •stress ---- 2. Polycystic ovary syndrome--------------Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) occurs when very small cysts (small, fluid-filled sacs) develop in the ovaries. The usual symptoms of PCOS are irregular or light periods or no periods at all. This is because, in women with PCOS, ovulation (the release of an egg) may not take place as often as normal. The production of hormones may also be unbalanced, and you could have higher levels of testosterone than normal. Testosterone is a male hormone that women usually have a small amount of. -------------- 3. Thyroid disorders---------------------A thyroid disorder is another possible, but rare, cause of irregular periods. The thyroid gland, found in the neck, produces hormones that maintain the body's metabolism (the chemical processes your body uses to turn food into energy). Your Gynae may test for a thyroid problem by taking a blood test to check levels of thyroid hormones in your blood. ---------------------- 4. Medicines-----------------Prolonged Usage of Certain Anti inflammatory can also lead to absence of Menstrual bleeding------------ So please provide me present and past history of your Amenorrhoea problem or visit a Gynae for a local examination and an Ultrasoung to rule out PCOD and a blood examination to rule out Thyroid or any Hormonal Imbalance-----------------------------Consult me.

Homeopathy can completely cure you of your problem. Take mag phos 200, 4 pills 4 times a day before your pain starts. Increase your water intake, and avoid coffee. If pain does not reduce will need to take a detailed history and evaluate.

Dear lybrate-user! You should not have problems for conceiving usually as you have regular cycles. Lets hope for the best. Just ensure that if you are on any active treatment for acne, many of the acne medicines are not safe during pregnancy and hence should be stopped prior to conception.

Since you have pcod earlier, so you may take time in conceiving naturally. If you want to conceive soon you should think of iui, as pcod females require ovulation induction many times, for egg formation and its maturation.

Hello, oral sex may raise the risk of head and neck cancer by 22 percent, according to a study published january in the journal of the american medical association (jama). This type of cancer has risen 225 percent in the last two decades. The us centers for disease control and prevention (cdc) urges hpv vaccination for all pre-teen boys and girls so they can be protected against the infection before they become sexually active.
