I am married since 9months and was suffering from PCOS, and had allopathy medicines. Now I am having facial hair growth. I have sensitive skin also. Pls advise what to do for facial hair. Jow to ride it off for ever.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology

As you are suffering for pcod, in which there is excessive hormone build up in your body which is responsible for the hair growth or hirsutism. It can be controlled with lifestyle modifications and medicines. Mainstay of your treatment is krimson-35 for 6-12 months will stop growth of new hairs on your body. Those who are already formed, you should get it removed at the dermatologist. Electrolysis and laser hair removal are best options, but expensive and may require multiple settings. Electrolysis uses an electric current applied to each hair follicle to destroy its root. Laser hair removal involves shooting a laser beam at each hair follicle to destroy its root. Shaving, bleaching, plucking, waxing, and using depilatories (creams that dissolve hair) are some of the more common ways of removing or hiding unwanted hair.

Is there any way to prevent pregnancy after 1 month of unprotected sex. Because 2 days back we had unprotected sex but her periods are already skrewed up because of the ipill. So should we take ipill again or just wait for the next period to come. Because already her periods are late by 15 days.

Please don't use I pills so frequently it's not a contraceptive pill it is emergency pill and should be used only in emergency situation now you wait for your next cycles and become more carefull after that I don't know when you took the last pill but in case of uncertainty it's better not to take it as a matter of fact you are saying her periods are delayed su better to check her pregnancy status with either pregnancy test or ultrasound.

I want to consult a gyne reading my abortion. I had taken the abortion pills on 3rd of February followed by on 5th of February again and started bleeding and cleaning on 5th. But still I continue to bleed and clean. When shall l get my next ultrasound done. Is it normal or ideal to bleed now, having completed 15 days already? Please suggest.

MBBS, MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology

sometimes even a smallest retained products of conception doesn't allow the uterus to regain complete health ,which is why the bleeding happens, go for an ultrasound and confirm on this and I'm sure we will be able to advise you further on this in a private consultation.

Sex, Alcohol, and Drugs

Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery (B.U.M.S)
Sexologist, Chennai
Sex, Alcohol, and Drugs

Sex, alcohol, and drugs at a glance:

Being drunk or high can cause you to do sexual things that you wouldn't normally want to do.
Mixing sex with drugs and alcohol can increase your risk of unintended pregnancy and STDs.
If you have sex with someone who's drunk or high, it could be considered a crime.

How do alcohol and drugs affect my sex life?

For starters, drugs and underage drinking are illegal. But also, getting drunk or high can cause problems in your sex life — and your relationships.

Mixing drugs (including alcohol) with sex is a bad idea because it can:

Make people have sex or do sexual things they wouldn't want to do if they were sober. Drugs and alcohol affect consent.
Make you forget to have safer sex.
Make you use condoms and birth control wrong.
Make it harder to orgasm (cum).
Make it difficult for guys to get and keep erections.

How can drugs and alcohol affect my decisions about sex?

Drugs and alcohol cloud your judgment. Choices about what music to listen to or what movie to see aren't very important. But the decision to have sex is a big one. Lots of young adults say they've done more sexual stuff after drinking or doing drugs than they'd planned.

And if you're drunk or high, you might not use condoms correctly, or you might forget to use them at all. So mixing sex with alcohol or other drugs increases your risk for unintended pregnancy and STDs.

Why cbc test is done during pregnancy? During pregnancy sugar test is required, then we should not use any fruits like banana, mango,pomegranate, grapes etc and sugar also without my sugar report. Doctor has advised me dnt use sugar due to mild poly hudrous amniotic fluid? How it affects the baby?

MBBS, DGO, MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MRCOG
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Cbc test is done mainly to find out about infections and anemia. Polyhydramnios may be because of high blood sugar so one needs to test for that and take precautions in the diet. Polyhydramnios may increase the complications for baby and mother boy facility for both so you must deliver in a good set up with nursery facility.

Dear Dr. My friend saurabh has newly married and he don't want get pregnancy for his wife right now, we studied on lybrate that a douching or vaginal washing after sex can extremely prevent pregnancy, therefore he want to know that how he do a complete vaginal wash process. Pls give me some tips for this so that you & me help him.

Minimal invasive surgery in gynaecology, MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, DNB, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Douching or vaginal washing is not a good method of preventing pregnancy as sperms are highly motile and swim up the vagina. This method will have a high failure rate. Ask your friend to use regular methods of contraception like condoms.

Hello, You are not likely to be pregnant as you had menses in november. This spotting may be just stress induced and often mark the start of cycles.
