Hi, Need to look into the matter. Since how long you have been suffering from this problem? Any associated symptoms or complaints? Any medical condition do you have? Have you got your investigations done (if yes, share the reports with me)? Answer all these questions for proper diagnosis and proper treatment. Any nutritional deficiency can also lead to Menstrual problem/ irregularity. Take more of green vegetables, nuts, salads, seasonal fruits, yellow coloured veggies, milk & milk products, plenty of water and enough of sleep & rest. Take homoeopathic medication – Schwabe's Five Phos. And Alfaalfa Tonic – both thrice daily for 1 month. Thereafter revert me back..take care.

Thyroid problems are known to delay a normal cycle. If the quality and quantity of the flow is normal, without excessive pain or other symptoms, then you need not worry. It will be more informative to go for ultrasound scan if your periods are regularly delayed by more than 10-14 days. Otherwise do nothing. No long term problems are expected.

What is the best contraception method for people with an active sex life? How safe are the emergency pills?

DGO, MBBS
Sexologist,
Someone doing regular sex oral contraceptive pills are best. Emergency pills are less effective and should not be used on regular basis.

Hello doctor, I had sexual intercourse with my gf on 4th october one day before her periods. Her date of cycle was 5th. Today is 6th october and she has not had her menses.

Things to Know Before Vascular Lesion Treatment

Things to Know Before Vascular Lesion Treatment

Cutaneous vascular lesions are the most common birthmarks found in children. Flat vascular lesions have a tendency to persist, but raised vascular lesions, called hemangiomas may involute gradually. They are the result of several or huge vessels that are formed underneath the skin and can lead to complications like pain, bleeding, cosmesis or disfigurement. It is necessary to seek treatment for both medical and cosmetic reasons.

Cutaneous vascular malformations are best treated by laser surgery and it is effective sometimes for cosmetic reasons. Hemangiomas may need surgery for residual lesions after involution of the lesion. Use of laser surgery, successfully can help in eliminating certain targets (chromophores) within your skin by putting into use the beam of requisite wavelength, energy setting and pulse duration. Initially these caused serious side-effects like scarring of the skin or permanent dyspigmentation but after the development of photothermolysis technique, the side effects were less seen.

Things to keep in mind before lesion treatment:
The main forms of treatment include laser therapy. Surgery is less used at present as it poses the risk for hemorrhage. The patient should be aware of a few things before going through the treatment procedures.

  1. Cutaneous vascular malformations are best treated by laser surgery can be effective sometimes for cosmetic reasons hemangiomas may need surgery for residual lesions after involution of the lesion.
  2. Laser therapy can treat vascular lesions, such as telangiectasias or spider veins, port wine stain, birthmarks and strawberry hemangiomas. The laser is safer and more effective because it proves to be useful in treating the blood vessels of a lesion without affecting the surrounding tissues.
  3. The patient may experience temporary discoloration of the skin surrounding the treatment site. This blue green discoloration is known as purpura and it usually fades within a week.
  4. The laser therapy is more effective in case of people who have a lighter skin color. In case of heavily tanned or deeply pigmented skin, the laser light may not be able to reach the surface of the lesion.
  5. A topical antibiotic in the form of an ointment or cream may be required by some patients after the treatment.

You are getting weak day by day and you are not able to eat more. I advise you to take proper balanced vegetarian diet. Take fruits and vegetables in daily diet. Take 8 to 10 glasses of water daily. Avoid garlic and red chilly at home and avoid non veg and eggs always. Do meditation for mental strength. This will help in your problem. For better guidance and treatment, consult privately.

Fertility: Nicotine Changes Sperm, and Not for the Better

Fertility: Nicotine Changes Sperm, and Not for the Better
Men who smoke are less likely to make a woman pregnant than nonsmokers, and the more they smoke the worse their chances are, a new study finds. According to doctors, men trying to have children will benefit if they smoke less. Women have chemical receptors to nicotine on their eggs like those on sperm so, they said, smoking is likely to lessen ‪‎fertility for them, too.

Highly lipemic means high fats interfering with results, due to internal factors like hemorrhage any where, liver disease or break down of blood due to any other disease. It can be due to external factors also due to wrong collection of sample. Get the test repeated from another lab and do share with all of us here.

Take healthy diet. Folic acid vitamin is required in normal doses. You can start taking iron and calcium tablets. Anomaly scan at 18-20 weeks, then growth scan at around 28-32 weeks. Get your gtt test done at 24-28 weeks.

Dear sir/Madam, Can I have sex with my wife on 13 th day after her period date and continue on 14, 16, 18th dates if it is not possible to have sex on 12 th day and how many days a ovule will be ready to combine with sperm i.

Days after the period date and how many days an egg remains after its release from fallopian tube. Please confirm.

It is difficult to predict the exact days for ovulation. It may vary from person to person. The best way is to calculate the expected fertility period and have contact every day or every second day. For a woman with regular cycles, this is calculated as 2 weeks prior to the next expected period. 4 days before and 4 days after this date gives the fertility period.

You need to have a regular cycle while using the calendar method. It works best when you have a 28 to 30 days cycle. You need to opt for the artificial measures if your periods are irregular. You can opt for oral contraceptives in this case or may use a barrier method. The calendar method shall also be effective in case your period lasts for less than 28 days. Take a calendar and pencil the dates which are safe and those which are not. This is the best way to track your infertile and fertile days. You need not calculate manually and keep in mind the days when you had unprotected sex. Make sure to track your period pattern for at least a year so that you can establish a pattern. Keep a note of the start and the end date of your cycle. You can use the rhythm method when you have the basic pattern right. Mark the first day of your cycle and count days until the next cycle starts. Your safe days are 8 days before beginning of your next cycle. The 9th to the 18th day is said to be the most unsafe as you start ovulating at this time. It is better to avoid sexual intercourse at this time if you don? t want to get pregnant. You must be careful of the sexually transmitted disease at this time, as the calendar method does not protect from the disease in any way.

Hello Ma'am The pain that you are suffering from is considered as PMS aka pre menstrual syndrome. As your history suggests, there is only two days bleed accompanied with clots. This is because you have less endometrial growth. And due to this you are having unbearable pain as the endometrial thickness is less, it leads to severe pain when it gets removed during menses. Kindly have proper diet. Medicines. Will be required to increase your Endometrial thickness. To get proper and precise medicines, kindly consult to a physician or a consultant personally. This problem can be completely resolved, don't worry. Tk care.
