I had last year 2 continuous abortions. Know am agin got pregnancy what precautions should I take to be safe.
Your doctor will prescribe folic acid and dydrogesterone if ultrasound shows a viable pregnancy. Some specialised tests will be required to rule out rarer causes of abortion and to look for chromosomal anomaly. Repeated ultrasound will be needed to assess the condition of the uterus, cervix (uterus mouth) and development of the baby. You should drink adequate ro filtered water and fluids. Avoid activities requiring prolonged standing. Avoid strenuous activity. Diet should be simple and homemade. Avoid oily and fried items and dry meats. Increase sleep by 2 hours. Avoid intercourse. Do not stay in the room where there is too much noise, smoking, etc.

Porn - 3 Things You Must Know

Porn - 3 Things You Must Know

With the advent of the internet and it's free nature, pornography has become one of the most viewed explicit contents of the internet. Though not made for adolescents, pornography is viewed by a large number of teenagers and young adults. Sex education is highly necessary for teens and young adults and pornography can never be substituted for sex education. Read on more to find all about it.

1. Pornography is an act
The porn industry like all other industries exists for profitability and actors who indulge in explicit sexual activities on screen are professionals and the scenes are entirely scripted. The purpose of sex education, which is to provide knowledge about a person's own sexuality is lost in porn. Similar to romantic movies, which are far off from reality, pornography is also a fantasy.

2. Pornography is focuses on the act itself
Sex education is not just learning about sexual activities or preferences, but also about learning reproductive sex, safe sex, reproductive health, birth control and also emotional relations and responsibilities. Pornography is graphic by its nature and does not provide any knowledge on these subjects, which are of utmost importance as comprehensive sex education is necessary for every single person.

3. Pornography gives out the wrong message
The different positions or ways,which actors perform in pornography might be admirable, but it should be kept in mind that pornography has a purpose and it is not providing sex education to adolescents and young adults. When engaging in sexual activities with your partner, their level of comfort, their consent and their preferences matter the most. So knowledge gained from pornography is in most cases faulty. Also keep in mind that there is a stark difference in what is shown in porn and what happens in real life. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a sexologist.

Nail Bed Infection

MBBS, MS-General Surgery , FMAS, FIAGES
General Surgeon, Gurgaon
Nail Bed Infection

Paronychia is a soft tissue infection around a fingernail that begins as cellulitis but that may progress to a definite abscess. The 2 types of paronychia are as follows :

  • Acute paronychia - Painful and purulent condition; most frequently caused by staphylococci.

  • Chronic paronychia - Usually caused by a fungal infection

The image below depicts paronychia.

Classic presentation of paronychia, with erythema and pus surrounding the nail bed.

Signs and symptoms

Physical findings in acute paronychia include the following:

  • The affected area often appears erythematous and swollen

  • In more advanced cases, pus may collect under the skin of the lateral fold

  • If untreated, the infection can extend into the eponychium, in which case it is called eponychia

Further extension of the infection can lead to the involvement of both lateral folds as it tracks under the nail sulcus; this progression is called a runaround infection.

Physical findings in chronic paronychia include the following:

  • Swollen, erythematous, and tender nail folds without fluctuance are characteristic of chronic paronychia

  • Eventually, the nail plates become thickened and discolored, with pronounced transverse ridges

  • The cuticles and nail folds may separate from the nail plate, forming a space for the invasion of various microorganisms

Diagnosis

The diagnosis of paronychia is based primarily on patient history and physical examination. Some laboratory studies, however, can be useful. These include the following:

  • Gram staining and/or culture - To help identify a bacterial cause of fluctuant paronychia.

  • Potassium hydroxide (KOH) 5% smears - To help diagnose fluctuant paronychia caused by a candidal infection

Management

Treatment strategies for paronychia include the following:

  • If soft tissue swelling is present without fluctuance, the infection may resolve with warm soaks 3-4 times daily

  • Patients with extensive surrounding cellulitis or with a history of diabetes, peripheral vascular disease, or an immunocompromised state may benefit from a short course of antibiotics

  • If an abscess has developed, incision and drainage must be performed.
