You have to get thyroid incontrol as it is high now. Some Bartholin gland cysts go away without treatment. You can take a nonprescription pain medicine such as ibuprofen (Advil or Motrin, for example) to relieve pain. To help healing, soak the area in a shallow, warm bath, or a sitz bath. Don't have sex while a Bartholin cyst is healing. If the cyst is infected, it may break open and start to heal on its own after 3 to 4 days. But if the cyst is painful, your doctor may drain it. You may also need to take antibiotics to treat the infection. To keep the cyst from closing and filling up again, your doctor may put a small drainage tube with a small balloon at one end inside the cyst. The balloon is inflated inside the cyst to keep the cyst open. After the gland has healed, the tube and balloon are removed.

loose motions most of the time settle down on their own but take care if they are too loose i mean watery and frequently then you might develop dehydration which can create problems. take plenty of fluids n ors liquid so as to keep your self hydrated.

Humping sex is safe sex, if your penis has not ejaculated inside her vagina. So don't worry. Humping sex gives orgasm but saves all pregnancy and std.

One week before and after is safe and middle week is fertile provided your cycles are 28 days. Safety is only 60 % not 100%

Many a times , couple complains tha the semen which is deposited inside the vagina comes out of it after intercourse and they feel that it is the cause of infertility. But it is not so because very little amount of semen is required for the lady to become pregnant and that amount usually ascends into her uterus well , So dont worry.

I am newly married, me and my wife both are virgin, my finger is easily inserted in her vagina, but not my penis. Is her vagina opening small? How vagina opening can be increased, so that my penis is easily inserted.

Try to insert your penis inside her vagina after applying lubricants. Having penile intercourse is the most effective method of increasing the size of vagina.

Hysterectomy - Tips to Help You Recover Fast!

Hysterectomy - Tips to Help You Recover Fast!

The surgical procedure that is used for uterus removal of a female patient is known as a hysterectomy. From uterine fibroids to cancer in the uterus, there may be a variety of reasons for carrying out this procedure. Here is everything you need to know about the procedure and recovery.

Causes: There are a number of reasons for which one may have to undergo a hysterectomy. If uterine fibroids and other kinds of growth are causing severe pelvic pain and bleeding, then it may be required. This also applied to particularly painful endometriosis. Abnormal vaginal bleeding as well as severe and chronic pelvic pain, are enough of reasons by themselves for going in for this kind of surgery to remove the uterus. Also, when the uterus slides away from its normal position and slips into the vaginal canal, this signifies a condition known as Uterine Prolapse, which will also require treatment in the form of a hysterectomy. Andenomyosis is another reason why this surgery may be required, as this condition results in the thickening of the organ. Finally, if the patient is suffering from cervical or ovarian cancer, then the doctor may recommend this surgery to remove the uterus in case the tumour found has been tested as malignant.

Technique: There are various techniques that may be followed in the course of this surgery, depending on the location, the size and the severity of the condition and the growth that is associated with it. 

  1. Open Surgery Hysterectomy: This involves an incision of six to seven inches, in the belly of the patient so as to act on the abdominal region. After recovery, there will be a visible scar on the stomach of the patient.
  2. MIP Hysterectomy: The various approaches for this technique include vaginal hysterectomy, laparoscopic hysterectomy, laparoscopic assisted vaginal hysterectomy, and robot assisted laparoscopic hysterectomy.

Risks: While this is mostly known as a low risk procedure, there may be various risks after the surgery including urinary incontinence, vaginal prolapse, formation of fistula where an abnormal link may form between the bladder and the vagina and finally, persistent pain. Infection, haemorrhage and blood clots may also happen in extreme cases.

Recovery: The female patient will automatically start menopause once this uterus removal procedure has been carried out. Usually, the doctor will ask you to refrain from lifting heavy weights for a few weeks after the surgery and also, to abstain from sex for a while. Most female patients reported complete cure of the problem following this surgery. Also, it is not common to find too many side effects after the surgery.

Tips

  1. Walking after a month. 
  2. Simple streching exercises after a month. 
  3. Plenty of fruits and vegetables in diet. 
  4. Water intake around 6 to 7 glasses. 
  5. Calcium supplements.

Dear Doctor, I am 25 years old female. I am trying to conceive since last 2 years. I am having pcod since last 1 years. I am having Thyroid (TSH) since last 3 years. I was taking medicines for pcod and TSH. My period was irregular and last two months (jan, Feb) periods comes correct time. In last month (Mar) my periods not come in time. So on 23 mar I went to lab and tested HCG beta test and result was 36.47. After two days (25 mar) I again tested the same test and result was 34.21 so its was decreased. I also tested my thyroid TSH on 23 mar and the result is 12.079. So as I explained above please tell me whether I am pregnant or not ?Any chance for pregnancy? What I have to do next?

Yes you have a pregnancy. This pregnancy test indicates the pregnancy is abnormal and most probably miscarried. The Bhcg should double in 2 days in a normal pregnancy but in your case it fell. The other thing that your doctor will check for is complete decline of Bhcg to negative values. For this your doctor will repeat the test in a weeks time. This test is important to check for complete clearance of pregnancy from your body. Your TSH is very high. This may be the cause of miscarriage of your pregnancy. You have to check with your doctor to increase your thyroid replacement doses. Remember to take your thyroid meds completely empty stomach and do not eat anything for 20-30 minutes.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Don't worry. These are normal for a matured and working woman. Even for a house wife. But please make sure there is no pain or hardness while squeezing. In that case consult a gynacologist. Take care.
