It is not necessary to have bleeding soon after I pill. If your period does not come on time, do a urine pregnancy test.

It must have been due to anxiety, or some stress related to pregnancy harmones, but if your other vital parameters and your blood tests are normal there is nothing to worry about.

Is sex safe during periods? Please help because every time I do not want to take pills as they have side effects.

Is sex safe during periods? Please help because every time I do not want to take pills as they have side effects.
Ms. Lybrate-user you need not take pills every time you have sex. Try going on a regular oral contraceptive pill. Best is insist your boyfriend uses a condom. Having sex during periods may be safe to avoid pregnancy but it is going to increase your chances of getting a sexually transmitted infection.

When my mensuration cycle completed every month with proper bleeding i got a red brown color spot just 5 to 6 days .What is it indicates?

M.B.S.(HOMEO), MD - Homeopathy
Homeopath, Visakhapatnam
Color of Spotting Between Periods Blood spotting can vary widely in color. It can be dark red, pink, dark brown, or brownish. ?Bright red is usually fresh blood; pink is diluted; brown is days-old blood; and black is very old blood? explains Weiss. ?Spotting may be any of these colors and the rapidity of bleeding and how long the blood takes to get past the cervix mucous will influence color, but not help with the diagnosis of an underlying cause? Pay attention to the color, in case you need to report these details to your doctor. However, color alone cannot tell your doctor what (if any) health concerns you are facing.

It comes in a 21 tablet blister pack. You must start the first tablet on the first day of your periods or menses (also referred to as D1 by gynecologists). Take one tablet every day for 21 days and make sure you have it round about the same time for better results. Wait for 7 days after you finish the first strip. You will have had your menses during that time. Make sure to start the second pack on the 8th day and continue the process like previously. Please note that for the second pack and the packs thereafter, you are not required to wait for the first day of your menses. This is only applicable to the first ever pack that you take.

360 Degree Approach For Managing Diabetes

360 Degree Approach For Managing Diabetes

Diabetes is a very common lifestyle disease, which happens when your body is not able to produce the insulin hormone or does not know how to use it in the right way. In such a scenario the glucose remains in the blood, and causes your blood sugar level to shoot up. It is a common knowledge that diabetes is a home for other diseases. Therefore managing it or preventing it is of utmost importance and in order to the same, one has to focus on the overall health and fitness of your body. 

But managing diabetes is a challenge that most patients face every day. This is because there are so many aspects to be kept in mind right from workout to food to stress and general health, all of which work together to help you maintain the right blood sugar levels.

Here goes a holistic approach to aid you manage diabetes: 

  1. Keep a record of the food you consume: When you are learning to control the level of blood sugar in your body, it would be very helpful if you maintain a journal of what food items you are eating every day. This will make it easier for you to monitor your diet and even if you indulge in some delicious savory, you can easily bring about a balance by eating the right amount of healthy fruits & vegetables for the following days.
  2. Exercise daily: Make exercise a part of your daily routine and empower yourself to fight diabetes. Types of exercises you can follow are brisk walking, basic weight training to boost your strength, swimming and yoga. Yoga postures which are highly beneficial in managing diabetes are Pranayam (deep breathing exercises), vajrasana, chakrasana, etc. which either enhance the insulin secretion or glucose utilisation.
  3. Be careful about your feet: Diabetes can lead to neuropathy and in the worst case, it may cause injuries in feet that go in-noticed because low pain sensation. Therefore, proper foot care is critical. You should wash your feet regularly with cold water and pat dry with a clean, dry towel & do make it a point to inspect the feet in front of a mirror. If there is a nerve damage along with numbness, you may notice blisters, sores, bruising, swelling, calluses or skin breakage. Thus, you will have to be very careful while inspecting your feet every day.
  4. Get rid of extra belly fat to reduce insulin resistance: It is a vicious circle, as extra belly fat can eventually lead to insulin resistance and insulin resistance can eventually lead to weight gain, but in order to manage and control diabetes it is important that this chain must be broken. Therefore, daily exercise of minimum 20 - 30 mins is very much required. to help you get rid of belly fat and control diabetes. 
  5. Control Blood Pressure & Cholesterol if high: Diabetes is a host of diseases and diabetic people will eventually suffer from high blood pressure and cholesterol problem. Diabetes is a major reason of artery damage, which in turn leads to high blood pressure. In order to, maintain a healthy heart and to prevent yourself against any cardiovascular diseases it is important that you keep you cholesterol and blood pressure in check. 
  6. Get the right treatment for sleep apnea and sleepiness during the day: Sleep apnea refers to a condition that causes breathing interruptions numerous times in a day. It is triggered by faulty signals coming from your brain or due to blocking of the airway by soft tissues present in your throat. People affected with sleep apnea are more likely to have this disorder, which leads to insulin resistance and may also be called a roadblock for controlling diabetes.
  7. Brush and floss on a daily basis: When you are not able to control your diabetes level, it can lead to high level of glucose in the blood. Also, it can increase the level of glucose in the saliva, which in turn paves the way for a surge in tooth decay. Also, having diabetes makes it difficult for an infection to heal and thus, if you develop a gum disease, it may become very hard for you to get rid of it. So, if you make a habit of brushing and flossing regularly, you would be able to maintain good oral hygiene and save your teeth and gums from developing any disease. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can ask a free question.

How Anal Fissures are Diagnosed?

S.A.C.R surgeon
General Surgeon, Jaipur
How Anal Fissures are Diagnosed?

An anal fissure is a small tear or crack in the lining of the anus which causes sharp pain, bleeding, itching, or burning.

An anal fissure can affect people of all ages, and it’s often seen in infants and young children. Constipation is a common problem in this age group and it is a major cause of this problem.

An anal fissure usually isn’t a serious condition. In most cases, the tear heals on its own within four to six weeks. In cases where the fissure persists beyond eight weeks, it’s considered chronic, or long term.

Symptoms-

  1. A visible tear in the skin around the anus
  2. A small lump of skin just next to the tear
  3. A sharp pain in the anal area during bowel movements
  4. Streaks of blood on stools or on wiping
  5. Burning or itching around the anus

Causes-

  1. Straining during childbirth
  2. Straining during bowel movements as a result of constipation
  3. Chronic constipation
  4. Diarrhea
  5. Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
  6. Overly tight anal sphincter muscles

In rare cases, an anal fissure may develop due to:

  1. Anal cancer which occurs due mostly to ano-receptive sex without barrier protection
  2. HIV infection
  3. Tuberculosis
  4. Syphilis
  5. Herpes

Let’s take a closer look at these risk factors.

  1. Anal fissures are common in infants and young kids. Older adults also become prone to anal fissures as the blood flow to the anorectal region decreases.
  2. Women also become prone to these fissures due to straining during childbirth.
  3. The inflammation that occurs in the intestinal lining in people with IBD makes the tissue around the anus more prone to tearing, further causing fissures.
  4. People who frequently experience constipation are at an increased risk for fissures. Also, one can suffer from fissures due to straining and passing large, hard stools. In both these cases, one may experience tears in the anal lining.
  5. Frequent diarrhea can also tear the skin around the anus and so can ano-receptive sex without protection. This can lead to sexually transmitted diseases like genital herpes, HIV/AIDS and infection with HPV virus which causes anal cancer.

Treatment-

Treatment usually helps control anal fissures and the discomfort it causes. Your doctor will prescribe stool softeners and topical pain relievers to stem discomfort. However, if these do not make your anal fissure go away then surgery may be required. And in addition to this, your doctor will also need to look for other underlying causes that can cause anal fissures like for example anal cancer.

Diagnosis

  1. An anal fissure can be diagnosed by simple physical exam. The doctor looks at the area around your anus and follows it up with a rectal exam to confirm the diagnosis.
  2. This can mean the use of an anoscope. In this, the doctor inserts an anoscope into your rectum to be able to see the anal tear.
  3. An anoscope is a thin tube and it allows doctors to inspect the anal canal. An anoscope is also used to diagnose other causes of anal or rectal pain such as hemorrhoids or piles. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a General Surgeon.

the truth is there is every chance of pregnancy as the condom hv broken n your semen has entered into her vagina. There is only hope if her period date is near soo there will be very less chance of pregnancy. Wait until her next period and if she misses her period then after 8-10 days check urine fr pregnancy.

The medicines you are taking are to improve the blood flow to the uterus and ovaries and also to treat poly cystic ovaries. Since you are already 34 years and completed 5 years of your marriage I feel you must fast track your treatment process. That is if you are very keen to have a baby in your life better to go for ivf in a good centre.

Make stool culture first in case of white discharge you may use yogi licotone syrup with lucofit capsule for 3 months. Drink maximum water to clear morning bowels, no stress, sound sleep, avoid junk food, soft drinks. If possible take 2 spoon of apple cider venegar in the morning in empty stomach
