Hello, if pregnancy is ruled out then the cause can be pcos, hypothyroidism or hyperprolactinemia. You need to get a hormonal profile done to rule these out.

Foods to avoid during menstruation cycle

Foods to avoid during menstruation cycle
Foods to avoid during menstruation cycle

Eating right kind of food can make your irritable menstruation days easier. It also helps in reducing stress level, cramps and managing mood swings.
Here’s how you must mind your food.

1. Dairy products and red meat: Dairy products like cheese, yoghurt and milk and red meat contain arachidonic acids which elevate cramps during your periods.

2. Fats, Trans fat and fried food: High intake of fatty, trans fatty and fried food leads to bloating and breast tenderness and increased estrogen levels which causes cramps. It’s better not to consume fats for few days.

3. Processed food and salt: Processed food contains lot of sodium. It should be avoided as it causes bloating and heavy feeling which makes the pain all the more unbearable.

4. Sugar-rich food: Sugar no doubt gives instant energy but taking excessive sugar during these days can bring fluctuation in blood sugar levels which results in stress and mood swings.

5. Alcohol: It’s important to stop taking alcohol during menstruation. But if you happen to drink at all, try to balance it out by drinking a lot of water.

My pregnancy test is negative I'm still waiting for the periods till date I completed 46 days. Am I pregnant or not?
If the pregnancy test was done quite some time back you should repeat once and once negative you definitely are nonpregnant and can take medicine for withdrawl bleeding. At times if the menstrual cycle is irregular a delayed ovulation may occur. In that case the pregnancy test which was initially negative can come positive few days later. Thus the repeat pregnancy test precaution.

Dear lybrate user. I do understand. Menstruation is a cycle. The first day is the day in which bleeding is seen. Bleeding happens because of the disintegration of unfertilized egg. Safe sex can be up to 10 days from fday 1 and before 7 days of the next day 1. I suggest you read many articles available online. Take care.

More time spent standing rather than sitting could improve your blood sugar, fats in the blood and cholesterol levels, while replacing time spent sitting with time walking could have additional benefits for your waistline and body mass index.

Why C-Section is better than Normal Delivery for Women?

MBBS, DGO, MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MRCOG

Why C-Section is better than Normal Delivery for Women?

Why and how c-section is better than normal delivery for women?

Pregnant women can opt for one of the two ways to deliver their babies: they can either have a normal/vaginal delivery or a surgical delivery by having a c-section. In many cases, the choice of having a c-section is planned due to certain medical reasons that make having a normal delivery risky. A pregnant female may know in advance that she will require a c-section and can schedule it as she may be carrying twins or multiple babies, or she may be suffering from a medical condition such as high blood pressure or diabetes, an infection such as hiv or herpes that may complicate pregnancy or there may be placental problems during pregnancy.

A c-section also becomes a necessity in situations such as where the mother has a small pelvis and the baby is very large or when the baby is in heads up position and efforts to turn the position of the baby before delivery have not been successful.

In some cases the decision to do a c-section is unplanned and taken by the obstetrician due to certain emergency reasons such as problems during pregnancy or if the labour is happening too slowly or if the baby is not receiving enough oxygen.

Some of the c-sections are considered to be elective and may be requested by the female for reasons that are non-medical before she goes into labour. A female may choose to get a c-section if she wants to plan her delivery or if she had a vaginal delivery that was complicated previously.

Why c-section is better than normal delivery for women?

During a normal delivery, there is a higher risk that the tissues and skin around the vagina stretch and tear when the baby passes through the birth canal. If this stretching and tearing is severe, it may require stitches. This may ultimately lead to weakness or injury to the muscles of the pelvis that control bowel and urine function.

According to some studies, it has been found that females who have had normal/vaginal deliveries are more prone to develop urinary or bowel incontinence (leakage of urine and stool respectively) than females who have had c-sections. They are also more at risk of developing leakage of urine during sneezing, coughing or laughing.

After a normal delivery, a female may also develop a lingering or continuous pain in the perineum-the region between the vagina and anus.

According to a study published in the new england journal of medicine, the rates of bleeding into the brain of the baby was higher during vacuum extraction and forceps delivery (two methods of using assistive devices during normal deliver) than during c-section.

Fungal infections and clothes

MD - Dermatology , Venereology & Leprosy, MBBS
Dermatologist, Ahmedabad
Fungal infections and clothes
Follow these basic tips to prevent yourself from fungal infections:

1. Wash and iron your clothes regularly, especially the undergarments. Ironing your clothes kills the left out fungus too. Thus the risk of reinfection is completely eliminated.

2. Avoid wearing tight clothes. Sweat and dampness create ideal environment for the growth of fungus.

3. Never share clothes with anyone as fungus can pass from one person to other.
