Most likely you are suffering from fibrocystic disease. It is due to hormonal stimulation of the breast tissue. It may cause pain in some patients. It may resolve spontaneously with pregnancy. Reassurance and supportive sports bra (especially in large breasts) have shown to be effective in most women. Usually Vitamin E 400 mg 2-3 capsule daily or/ and Evening Primrose Oil 3000 mg daily Containing 240-360 mg GLA which comes to 4-6 capsules per day is the initial amount prescribed for 2-3 months. If response is good then the dose may be decreased for 3 more months and then stopped. The symptoms may never recur. But relapses are also known. If there is no response to above, then we usually shift to Danazole, Bromocriptine or SERM (tamoxifen or ormeloxifen) Bromocriptine is costly and causes nausea, vomiting and headache. Danazole has troublesome androgenic side effects. Tamoxifen is known to cause DVT or cataract but usually for long term or higher dose of 20 mg, which is given in breast cancer. We recommend 10 mg daily for 3 months. Ormeloxifen is the indian drug previously called centchroman or Saheli. It is usually given as 30 mg daily or alternate day schedule. Some patients may develop ovarian cysts on daily schedule. It works well with non cyclical as well as cyclical mastalgia. If you need further clarification, feel free to contact me directly.

Managing Your Sexual Relationship During Pregnancy!

Managing Your Sexual Relationship During Pregnancy!

Most couples are surprised by the way the arrival of a baby alters their relationship and their entire lives. Whether it is your first or second child, your relationship with your partner is likely to suffer a jolt. Having babies can bring each other closer, but it can also chip away the basic constituent of the relationship.

Some of the most common relationship pitfalls that a relationship suffers from and their remedies are discussed below:

Deprivation of sleep

  • It goes without saying that having children can be overwhelming as well as exhausting. The cumulative nature of the sleep deprivation leads to mood swings and makes it difficult to cope up with the regular stress.
  • This stress accumulates and is likely to affect the relationship between the new parents.
  • To help the condition, it is recommended to sleep while the baby is asleep so that your mind and body can relax.
  • You can seek help from your family members too, if they can help you cope up with the regular chores.

Lack of intimacy

  • It is no surprise that sexual intimacy would decline while being pregnant and it eventually vanishes after childbirth.
  • Sexuality is a very personal and intimate connection between two people; sexual disconnection and dysfunction can become a crucial problem for many people.
  • You should not view lack of intimacy as a sign of rejection as it may cause misunderstandings and the relationship may suffer.
  • You can have other forms of intimacy such as touching or kissing or snuggling and take your time to connect with each other physically.
  • Remember that sexual connection is not the only way of physical connection and you must try to explore them while being pregnant and after childbirth.

Sharing responsibilities

  • When a new member comes to the family, it invariably leads to increase in responsibilities and this may cause a physical deprivation.
  • It also causes resentments and glitches when one partner feels that he or she is executing more tasks than the other.
  • This leads to miscommunication and physical intimacy is likely to suffer.
  • Try to map out each other’s routine and see to it that each one has his or her own share of responsibilities.
  • The transition that any couple undergoes while the woman is pregnant is certainly joyous and when the child comes to the family, it can be miraculous as well as challenging on the other hand. You cannot afford to let your love life sink, and therefore, both of you should come together to keep the love ignited.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Pregnancy test should be done only after 7 days of missed period. So if it was expected on 3 march then it should be done on 12 march (added 2 days for the feb). If negative then keep repeating it every week till menses comes. You have to read it within 5 min of putting the urine and even faint second line is positive. Also as you r having backache, that means most probably menses r going to come soon. Also symptoms of pregnancy will appear only after 2 weeks of missed period.

She is suffering from severe dysmenorrhoea, which is very common. It should be treated initially with meftal spas (pain killer) tablets three times a day. Irregular menses for 2 months only does not need any kind of treatment. It can happen because of hormonal changes.

At 42 your wife is having hormonal changes and may be some imbalance due to perimenopasal time around menopause, get milk drop tested on slide and get her blood tested for prolactin hormone levels. Some woman for have higher levels of this hormone secreted by higher centre in brain when woman is pregnant but it is higher in non pregnant woman sometimes. Get back here, get an ultrasound of breast done to rule out any underlying nodes.
