MD Gynaecology, MBBS

In case of loose vagina, you can go for vaginoplasty. In this surgery, the muscles around the outer opening of vagina are stiched and the tone of the muscles becomes tight and normal and she and you will enjoy sex like before.

No it will not cause pregnancy. Unless some semen has leaked from anal opening into vagina which is very rare. So don't worry.

Sir my wife period's come and 2nd day stop so what problem with him. And I am doing oral sex so that this is create problem in periods pls answer me.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Cunnilingus or oral sex is safe kind of sex as compared to vaginal or anal sex. Chlamydia, human papillomavirus (hpv), gonorrhea, herpes, hepatitis (multiple strains), and other sexually transmitted infections (stis/stds), can be transmitted through oral sex if the partner is infected with any one of these. But carrying these kind of diseases in a known partner is extremely rare. Risk of sti infection, however, is generally considered significantly lower for oral sex than for vaginal or anal sex, with hiv transmission considered the lowest risk with regard to oral sex. Also it does not change the menses pattern. Hormonal changes can cause this.

My mother is 48 yrs old. She has irregular periods with heavy bleeding. She consult with the doctor, and doc is saying from last 1year that now its time to stop the menstruation period, but nothing happened.My mother has to suffer alot of pain with heavy blood flow every month. Please suggest what to do. Thanks in advance!

MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Ludhiana
Hi excessive bleeding in periods at this age is very common & there are many causes including dysfunctional uterine bleeding, fibroid uterus, endometriosis, pelvic inflammatory disease, polyps, malignancy, some drugs etc. Most important is to diagnose the exact cause & treat accordingly. To say simply that it is because of menopause (or to say that its time to stop the periods, as commonly said), without relevant investigations to rule out above mentioned causes, its not wise to call it normal variation. So your mother needs _ 1- complete gynaecological examination 2- ultrasound abdomen 3- blood tests, which must include hb, cbc, blood sugar, thyroid function test & complete urine examination 4- lastly, a premenstrual endometrial biopsy. Get done all tests & discuss with me after you get all reports. Till then, ensure that she has good healthy diet, proper rest & stress free life.

General Precautions in Swine Flu during Pregnancy

MBBS, DGO, MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MRCOG

General Precautions in Swine Flu during Pregnancy

General Precautions in Swine Flu during Pregnancy

Frequent handwashing is the single most important safety precaution that is suggested.

Flu spreads when virus from an infected person's secretions like sneezing etc spreads in the environment.Occassionaly touching an infected area and then touching your nose/ eyes or mouth may allow the live virus to enter your system. Most of the time this virus gets killed by our body's defences but at times it may survive and cause flu.

Catch it, Bin it and kill it is the magic mantra:

Catch your infected secretions in a tissue/ handkerchief and promptly kill it by putting it in the dustbin and washing your hands with soap.

Hand sanitizers with at least 60% alcohol content are supposed to kill the virus in 60 seconds.

Keep the hard surfaces/infants toys; clean. Household cleansers should be used liberally as they can reduce the transmission rate.

Finally it is advised that in pregnancy one should avoid contact with sick people.

Use of vaccines

Till date two types of vaccines against swine flu are available.

1) Nasal spray vaccine: This cannot be taken in pregnancy.

2) Injectable vaccine: This is safe in pregnancy and it is strongly recommended that if seasonal swine flu is present then all pregnant women should take the vaccine. Please ask your doctor for more details.

WHO recommends that all pregnant women should be offered the vaccine. This will decrease their chances of contracting the disease and also protect their newborn from swine flu in the neonatal period

This vaccine does not have any serious side effects but may cause mild flu like symptoms upto 48hrs in some people but this is not flu as the vaccine does not have live virus. There may be some redness, soreness,or swelling at the injection site which disappears on its own.

Use of Drugs:

These are used only for close contacts of confirmed positive cases, like people living in the same house as the patient.

The drug (Tamiflu) is safe in pregnancy. Ask your doctor whether you should be taking it in case you are pregnant and any of your family members have been diagnosed with swine flu.

What should I do if I think I have swine flu and I'm pregnant?

You must go to your doctor immediately ;who would check you up and may want to take throat/ nose swabs for confirmation of swine flu. If she thinks you indeed have swine flu, she may start the medicines without waiting for the lab confirmation.

If swine flu is confirmed then you have to take further treatement from dedicated swine flu centers in your area.

In the mean time, stop going to your workplace and avoid unneccesary exposure to people to contain the spread of flu.

If you have a mild disease then you need to take treatment from home. You must avoid exertion and take plenty of fluids by mouth during this time.

If your symptoms are severe then you may require hospital admission to monitor you and your baby.

Can I breastfeed my baby if I have swine flu?

Yes. In fact it has been found that breastfed babies have a stronger immunity against swine flu.

If you have an active flu or you are very sick, you may express breast milk in a bottle and a healthy person can feed the baby.

You need not stop breastfeeding your baby even if you are on treatment for swine flu.

Somatic Symptom Disorder

MA In Clinical Psychology

Somatic Symptom Disorder

Somatic symptom disorder is when you put so much focus on symptoms such as pain or fatigue that you have trouble functioning or experience severe emotional distress. You will be visiting the doctor a lot, completely unnecessarily and will waste a lot of money when you have no major health concerns. However, there are treatments, which can help you cope with this problem. Read further to find out what they are:

Symptoms 

  1. Worrying excessively about an illness, which has not yet occurred
  2. Frequent health care visits
  3. Fear of physical activity damaging your body
  4. Fearing that the evaluation of doctors is not adequate

There are many more symptoms, which may indicate that you are suffering from somatic symptom disorder. However, the most important way of telling whether someone is suffering from somatic symptom disorder or not is to see whether the patient is overly worried about a physical problem, which has not yet occurred. One of the first steps in making sure that this does not happen is finding out what causes the problem and preventing it. Here are the causes of somatic symptom disorder.

Causes: As with other psychological disorders, the exact cause of somatic symptom disorder is not yet known. However, there are a number of factors which may increase the risk of it, such as: 

  1. Genetic and biological factors: These as well as an increased sensitivity to pain are some of the factors, which you have no control over. 
  2. Environment you grew up in: Just like the genes you have, the environment you grew up in and your family influence will have a major impact on whether you develop the condition as well.
  3. Problems processing emotions: When people have problems processing emotions, their physical symptoms seem like a bigger problem than they actually are.

Treatment: Luckily, there are treatments for this disorder as well, which include.

  1. Psychotherapy: Psychotherapy is the most common treatment used to help people with somatic symptom disorder.
  2. Medications: Since depression and pain often occur when a person is suffering from somatic symptom disorder, antidepressants can be given as well.

There are soo mny symptoms during pregnancy. Itching is one of them. Do not itch or press too much as it will aggravate the condition and also it can leave behind marks. Rather go for medication. By homoeopathic treatment this will cure for sure. U can apply olive oil or coconut oil only. Soo you can contact me through Lybrate for further treatment.

Consumption of counter pain relievers is advisable. A pain killer which reduces inflammation is highly recommendable. Some common ones are ibuprofen and aspirin.

My mom is working as a chief Merton in railway hospital. She has huge work load and she takes care of my family too. The problem is she gets angry very often. She picks a fight for very silly reasons and gets worked up over petty issues. She thinks that fighting and raising her voice is the ultimate solution for any problem.
