I have 2 months of pregnancy and I have to do abortion of my pregnancy please give me a suggestion and I have not yet married.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist,
Your age is not mentioned, but if it is less than 18, then it would be better to confide in your parents, and approach a government mtp center and get an abortion done, with parents consent, which is mandatory by law if you are above 18, and have confirmed your pregnancy then too, you can seek abortion from a abortion center where they will do necessary tests and then give you the choices for abortion. Abortion is a simple procedure which if done by specialists, causes elast damage to your body. If the same abortion is done by those who are quacks and not qualified to do abortion, then it may cause damage to your body and prevent your chances of having a child in future, so be bold and approach the right abortion center. Abortion is done by 2 methods, if pregnancy is less than 3 months. 1. By taking tablets: these tablets are not available in medical stores, and they are usually distributed only by qualified doctors. In this method a doctor gives you tablets on 2 days and then you have to wait for the bleeding to occur. The tablets cause the abortion and throw out the baby along with the blood. This bleeding may be like a heavy menses and it may last for a few days. In some the bleeding may be huge or for more days and hence the patient may get giddiness or seek an" emergency abortion" in the hospitals. This will lead to extra expenses. While medical abortion is safe, there could be: 1. Excess bleeding 2. Incomplete abortion 3. Infection 4. Need for an emergency surgery to complete the abortion 5. It may fail and pregnancy may continue in some 2. Surgical abortion: here the patient goes to the abortion center, gets examined and is scheduled for an abortion at a date. On the day of abortion the patient is asked to come to hospital without food and water for 6 hours she is given injections to prepare her and to make her anesthetised and then the uterus is cleaned of it's pregnancy contents using some instruments. After waiting for observation the patient is discharged, with antibiotics and painkillers advantages of surgical abortion are: 1. Its swift 2. Its mostly complete 3. It finishes the abortion in a half a day, so patient is free to resume her work 4. It is done under anesthesia so the patient doesnot feel the pain of the abortion 5. Bleeding is less than medical abortion as the gynecologist who does it can use medicines to tackle any extra bleeding. So choose wisely do not go to quacks for abortion the government of india had a mtp law according to which only 1. Qualified gynecologist. I md, dgo, Ms. (gynecologists) 2. Trained mbbs doctors can do the abortion. All other doctors are not allowed to do it!

Hello. When to take fallopian tube test. I mean which symptoms tells us to take fallopian tube test. Thanks.

Diploma in Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
Day 5 of cycle or just after the period - day 1 is the day period starts like it is 1.5. 16, test will be done on 6.5. 16 but if women have a tendency to have a 7 days plus cycle, it will be done a day after she gets dry. Reason is that while doing the test for tubes, we are hopeful of a pregnancy and will be disturbing / killing it.

6 Things to Remember For Safe Sex

6 Things to Remember For Safe Sex

Getting to be intimate with someone is a great feeling as you can get to enjoy and explore each other’s bodies, mind and spirit. However it is also important that you avoid getting infected by sexually transmitted diseases. Although you are probably aware of how to protect yourself in general circumstances, you could be mistakes in the heat of the moment and fail or forget to use adequate protection. Always be safe, never sorry.

The following tips will help you stay safe, each time you have sex and should never be forgotten:

  1. Single partner and regular testing: The safest way to have sex is have a single partner and to ensure that neither of you have any form of STI (sexually transmitted infections). If you have been with multiple partners before then get yourself tested for STIs and STDs (sexually transmitted diseases).
  2. Bring your own condom (BYOC): Never rely on the partner to have dams, condoms or lube. It is highly recommended that you have your own supply and the expiration dates should be checked before usage.
  3. Contraception: In addition to condoms, other forms of contraceptives like cervical caps and contraceptive pills must be utilized to prevent unwanted pregnancy. One should also consider using female condoms.
  4. Lubrication: Even though friction during sex can help in elevating pleasure levels, it also increases the risks of infection. In order to prevent friction, try to use a lubricants during sex. Oil-based lube should not be used on a latex condom as it may cause breaks within. Water and Silicon based lubricants are better options
  5. Set personal boundaries: Having personal rules and boundaries around safe sex can be helpful in setting a standard for behaviour. Writing down what one personally approves of and doesn’t is helpful in setting proper boundaries around the concept of safe-sex. In case of a history of sexual abuse, it is important to contact a therapist or somebody close and opening up to them so they can initiate the process of recovering from it.
  6. Drink responsibly: It is important to consider the limit of alcohol and the people one chooses to drink with. It is also necessary to understand the concept of consent. You should not be or allowed to be pressurized into having sex.

It is important to understand the importance of safe sex and being able to speak up about sex without feeling any shame. Furthermore, it is important to understand your responsibilities in initiating safe sex and it is okay to find it difficult in the beginning. We have cultural stigmatization around sex and it is okay to be uncomfortable in the beginning, but it is equally important to develop the confidence to talk about sexual practices and safe-sex without guilt, shame or the fear of judgement.

Please consult a doctor instead of playing with your girlfriend's health by giving her medicines without supervision of the doctor. Any person married or unmarried will be treated by doctor, there is no problem with that. By not going to doctor you are taking all these drugs illegally.

5 TRUTHS VS MYTHS OF SEX

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Sexologist, Delhi
Although we hear 1000s of things about sex throughout our lives out of which not even 10% are true. Here is a list of top 5 and most common myths we hear from everywhere.

1) Oral sex and anal sex are 100% safe

Yes, to your surprise, it is a sex myth and the truth is that all sexually transmitted diseases that are transferred through unprotected vaginal sex can also be caught through all kinds of anal or oral sex. Medical science has proved that there are more chances of catching an STD infection through unprotected anal sex as compared with oral or vaginal sex.

2) First time sex will not make you pregnant

You can never foresee when odds are against you so you should not take the risk. A woman is as likely to conceive with first time sex as she will do anytime in her later life provided she does so in her fertile days.

3) Having sex during periods will never make you pregnant

Logically speaking, there are no chances of getting pregnant when you have your periods but if someone has a longer cycle or bleeds between the periods, it is quite possible. Moreover, when a woman has a short cycle and she has sex by last two to three days of her menstrual cycle, she can conceive because sperms will stay in her body for up to 72 hours.

4) Two condoms work better than one

One condom is enough to get the job done and there is no need to use two. In America, they test each latex condom for holes before packing it to the box. Regular and correct use of condoms will save you from many sexually transmitted diseases and other sex consequences.

5) Drinking alcohol guarantees better performance in bed

No, this is not true because alcohol takes out your ability to make sensible decisions and you can make risky choices. When you’re drunk, you can decide to have sex with someone you don’t want otherwise. It will not spice up the experience rather it can give you regrets.

LCPS, BAM&S

I am sure the sepsis of your son is being treated by a doctor. You have to protect yourself from sepsis by taking bath twice a day. Hemorrhoids are normal in pregnancy and you have to take liquid paraffin 30 to 60 ml every day to ease pain. Do not worry. Take it easy. Everything will be alright.

What steps to be taken if I'm planning a baby, precautions n methods of how to successfully conceive, please suggest.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
To get pregnant you need to have regular sex i. E. 3-4 times a week for one full year before you start seeking medical help. If you want to make her pregnant fast then you can follow this calender method. If a women’s menstrual cycle varies from 26days to 31days cycle, The shortest cycle (26 days) minus 18 days = 8th day. The longest cycle (31 days) minus 10 days=21st day Thus, 8th to 21st day of each cycle counting from first day of menstrual period is considered as fertile period.

A Wise Decision: Seeking Professional Help Before It's Late

Seeking Professional Help Before It's LateDepression and anxiety are affecting millions, all over the world and the phrase ‘pull yourself together” is still at play in INDIA. There is a huge social stigma, and a sense of shame about what others in the community might think about visiting a professional, which now needs to be corrected.
Research shows that Psychotherapy and counselling sessions are the most effective treatments to cure all psychological problems. These sessions not only help individuals to cope with daily problems, but also teaches them the skills and strategies to deal with them more effectively and make oneself emotionally and mentally empowered.

With Psychotherapy and counseling, you’ll learn more effective ways to deal with problems. gradually, you would develop certain problem-solving skills, coping mechanisms and better perception for overall growth.

A lot of people do not seek help and suffer internally because visiting psychologist/ psychiatrist is considered taboo in Indian society, leading to increased mental health problems. Most of the people avoid sharing personal problems and issues, as that might expose them as being weak.

The ideal solution for someone who is depressed, anxious and facing problems at work or in personal life, is seeking a professional help of psychologist/ psychiatrist. However, most people are not aware of the difference between a psychologist and a psychiatrist and hence are not sure whom to refer.

Let’s find out the difference between the both:

While psychologists and psychiatrists both conduct psychotherapy and research, there are many significant differences between the two professions,which we will list in our separate blog but, one very important distinction between the two is , that psychiatrists can prescribe medications, while psychologists cannot. However, there has been a recent push to grant prescribing powers to psychologist. psychologist deal with therapies, counseling, and building healthy perception towards life. even in cases where medication is required, psychiatrist may refer the client to psychologist further, for complementing the treatment with medicines.

The next time you feel depressed, anxious or need help dealing with overwhelming social situations or difficult times, make a smart choice, consider professional help and feel safe visiting a psychologist/ psychiatrist. In INDIA, with increase awareness and education, people are outgrowing
this stigma and consider it a wise step to go ahead and take initiative toward better life.

Psychological counseling is a tool that creates success, it’s something everybody would need in their life. At each developmental stage, a person needs guidance and awareness as how to adjust with new roles and be successful. Hence, considering counselling and psychotherapy to deal with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, is a wise move.
Take that one courageous step towards life.

Hi My wife is pregnant and due date is 1st March given by doc on last visit but not having any symptom of labor pain and water break. Please suggest what to do.

She should wait for natural labour, but in case she doesn't get any contractions, you would probably have to go for induced pains via injections and drips, provided there is no foetal distress and her other parameters like BP etc is controlled.

Diabetes and Cancer: The New Epidemic?

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)

Diabetes and Cancer: The New Epidemic?

There was an era where we had deadly infections like plague and polio causing death of thousands of people. We still have occasional outbreak of swine flu, but by and large, infections are quite controlled. The new killer diseases are caused because of the lifestyle we have adapted and the damage we have done to the environment. High intake of processed foods, artificial chemicals in our foods, sedentary lifestyle with very minimal to no physical activity, couching over the computers; the list is quite long.

All these have led to diseases like diabetes and cancer that were not so common about say few decades ago:

Detailed observation has revealed that both these new epidemiologic diseases have a close correlation. There are factors, which induce diabetes and diabetes in turn and in some cases, diabetes inducing agents, can cause cancer also. It has also been observed that mortality is severely increased if diabetic patients are diagnosed with cancer. There are two types of diabetes. While type 1 is mostly hereditary, type 2 is lifestyle induced and the age at which this is being diagnosed is taking a severe plunge. Adolescents and teenagers are being diagnosed for diabetes. Cancer, on the other hand, is of various types (leukaemia, melanoma, myeloma, etc.) and can affect various organs (lung, breast, prostate, stomach, liver, etc.).

The medical community is yet to decipher the disease pattern of both these conditions. While there is no definite correlation between diabetes and all types of cancer, some types of cancer are definitely correlated with a definite reason identified, pancreatic and liver cancer for instance. The high amounts of insulin that diabetic patients are exposed to causes changes in liver and pancreas including fatty liver and cirrhosis, here the incidence of cancer is higher. The linkage is not very clear in lung and intestinal cancers and also there is no link between prostate cancer and diabetes.

Diabetes is considered as a state of chronic inflammation and leads to conditions like hyperinsulinemia (higher levels of insulin in the blood) hyperglycemia (higher levels of sugar in the blood). These are believed to aggravate the neoplastic process of cancer formation, thereby inducing cancer at a greater pace and also increasing the mortality rates.

The following are risk factors that are applicable to both age, physical activity, diet, obesity, drinking and smoking. It is also possible that onset of one can be followed by the other. As noted earlier, more detailed research is awaited to establish a definite linkage, but the correlation cannot be ignored at all.

Both these new epidemics are here to stay and since they have a common set of factors, we need to work on ways to contain them.

I had a miscarriage in Oct 2015. Trying since February 2016 again. This cycle I took Siphene 100 mg and was on follicular testing. Ovulation was proper. I also took duphaston twice a day for 14 days. I had developed a dry cough since a week and cough very violently at night. I can feel the pressure in my pelvic region. Could this affect chances of conception and implantation?
