Know All About Gonorrhoea

Graduate in Ayurvedic Medicine and Surgery ( GAMS )
Sexologist, Delhi
Know All About Gonorrhoea

The year 2014 has seen a massive increase in the number of patients affected by Gonorrhoea. The most infected age group is between 15 and 24. This is mainly due to lack of knowledge in this age group about the disease. Here are some facts about Gonorrhoea that one must know.

Gonorrhoea Transmission: Gonorrhoea, also known as drip, is transmitted when a normal person comes in contact sexually with an infected person. Infected fluid of a mother can also pass to her newborn infant during delivery. The disease can affect both the genders.

Cause of Gonorrhoea: Neisseria gonorrhoeae bacteria cause the disease. The bacteria grow in mucus membranes and usually grow in the warm and moist areas of humans' reproductive tracts such as uterus and fallopian tube of women. These can also grow in anus, mouth as well as throat. As a matter of fact, the infection can be passed even via oral or anal sex.

Symptoms of Gonorrhoea: An infected person will develop symptoms of the disease in 2 to 14 days. Men may feel burning or painful sensation while urinating. Other symptoms are as follows:

  1. Swollen and painful testicles
  2. Swollen or redness at the tip of the penis
  3. Penis may have a drip or discharge
  4. Frequent urination
  5. Recurrent soreness of throat

Females have milder symptoms of the infection. This makes it difficult to diagnose, and is sometimes misinterpreted as common vaginal yeast or other bacterial infection.

Following are a few symptoms of the disease in women:

  1. Burning or painful urination
  2. Frequent urination
  3. Vaginal discharge
  4. Soreness in throat
  5. Fever
  6. Lower abdominal pain
  7. Pain while sexual intercourse

If the disease is not treated, infection spreads in blood stream leading to rashes, fever and even pain in the joints. Such unnoticeable symptoms make it difficult to treat.

Testing Methods of Gonorrhoea: One method is that penile or vaginal discharge samples are taken from patients and examined under a microscope by adding reactive stain. However, this is not an accurate assessment.
Another test is conducted where exposing samples are incubated. In case of infection, colony of gonorrhoea shows growth. Preliminary test may take 24 hours. Final assessment may take around three days. Samples can be from the patient's anus, joint fluid, blood, throat, vagina or tip of the penis.

Treatment: The disease is treatable under proper medical supervision. However, the bacterial resistance to Azithromycin drug has made it more difficult for treatment.

Protection: It is highly recommended to have a protected intercourse. Women of age group less than 25 need to have STI evaluation once a year.  If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Weight gain is normal after pregnancy. It would require proper assessment to determine the exact cause of this gain. Only then can we start an appropriate treatment & medications (if required).

कलौंजी के लाभ...

डायबिटीज से बचाता है, पिंपल की समस्या दूर, मेमोरी पावर बढ़ाता है, सिरदर्द करे दूर, अस्थमा का इलाज, जोड़ों के दर्द में आराम, आंखों की रोशनी, कैंसर से बचाव, ब्लड प्रेशर करे कंट्रोल.

कलौंजी एक बेहद उपयोगी मसाला है. इसका प्रयोग विभिन्न व्यंजनों जैसे दालों, सब्जियों, नान, ब्रेड, केक और आचार आदि में किया जाता है. कलौंजी की सब्जी भी बनाई जाती है.

कलौंजी में एंटी-आक्सीडेंट भी मौजूद होता है जो कैंसर जैसी बीमारी से बचाता है.
कलौंजी का तेल कफ को नष्ट करने वाला और रक्तवाहिनी नाड़ियों को साफ़ करने वाला होता है. इसके अलावा यह खून में मौजूद दूषित व अनावश्यक द्रव्य को भी दूर रखता है. कलौंजी का तेल सुबह ख़ाली पेट और रात को सोते समय लेने से बहुत से रोग समाप्त होते हैं. गर्भावस्था के समय स्त्री को कलौंजी के तेल का उपयोग नहीं कराना चाहिए इससे गर्भपात होने की सम्भावना रहती है.

कलौंजी का तेल बनाने के लिए 50 ग्राम कलौंजी पीसकर ढाई किलो पानी में उबालें. उबलते-उबलते जब यह केवल एक किलो पानी रह जाए तो इसे
ठंडा होने दें. कलौंजी को पानी में गर्म करने पर इसका तेल निकलकर पानी के ऊपर तैरने लगता है. इस तेल पर हाथ फेरकर तब तक कटोरी में पोछें जब तक पानी के ऊपर तैरता हुआ तेल खत्म न हो जाए. फिर इस तेल को छानकर शीशी में भर लें और इसका प्रयोग औषधि के रूप में करें.

आयुर्वेद कहता है कि इसके बीजों की ताकत सात साल तक नष्ट नहीं होती. दमा, खांसी, एलर्जीः एक कप गर्म पानी में एक चम्मच शहद तथा आधा चम्मच कलौंजी का तेल मिलाकर सुबह निराहार (भोजन से पूर्व) पी लेना चाहिए, फिर रात में भोजन के बाद उसी प्रकार आधा चम्मच कलौंजी और एक चम्मच शहद गर्म पानी में मिलाकर इस मिश्रण का सेवन कर लेना चाहिए. इस प्रकार 40 दिनों तक प्रतिदिन दो बार पिया जाए. सर्दी के ठंडे पदार्थ वर्जित हैं.

मधुमेहः एक कप काली चाय में आधा चाय का चम्मच कलौंजी का तेल मिलाकर सुबह नाश्ते से पहले पी लेना चाहिए. फिर रात को भोजन के पश्चात सोने से पहले एक कप चाय में एक चम्मच कलौंजी का तेल मिलाकर पी लेना चाहिए. चिकनाई वाले पदार्थों के उपयोग से बचें. इस इलाज के साथ अंगे्रजी दवा का उपयोग होता है तो उसे जारी रखें और बीस दिनों के पश्चात शर्करा की जांच करा लें. यदि शक्कर नार्मल हो गई हो तो अंग्रेजी दवा बंद कर दें, किंतु कलौंजी का सेवन करते रहें.

हृदय रोगः एक कप दूध में आधा चम्मच कलौंजी का तेल मिलाकर प्रतिदिन दो बार प्रयोग करें. इस तरह दस दिनों तक उपचार चलता रहे. चिकनाई वाले पदार्थों का सेवन न करें.

नेत्र रोगों की चिकित्साः नेत्रों की लाली, मोतियाबिंद, आंखों से पानी का जाना, आंखों की तकलीफ और आंखों की नसों का कमजोर होना आदि में एक कप गाजर के जूस में आधा चम्मच कलौंजी का तेल दो चम्मच शहद मिलाकर दिन में दो बार सुबह (निराहार) और रात में सोते समय लेना चाहिए. इस प्रकार 40 दिनों तक इलाज जारी रखें. नेत्रों को धूप की गर्मी से बचाएं.

अपच या पेट दर्द में आप कलौंजी का काढा बनाइये फिर उसमे काला नमक मिलाकर सुबह शाम पीजिये. दो दिन में ही आराम देखिये.
कैंसर के उपचार में कलौजी के तेल की आधी बड़ी चम्मच को एक ग्लास अंगूर के रस में मिलाकर दिन में तीन बार लें.

हृदय रोग, ब्लड प्रेशर और हृदय की धमनियों का अवरोध के लिए जब भी कोई गर्म पेय लें, उसमें एक छोटी चम्मच तेल मिला कर लें.

सफेद दाग और लेप्रोसीः 15 दिन तक रोज पहले सेब का सिरका मलें, फिर कलौंजी का तेल मलें.

एक चाय की प्याली में एक बड़ी चम्मच कलौंजी का तेल डाल कर लेने से मन शांत हो जाता है और तनाव के सारे लक्षण ठीक हो जाते हैं.

कलौंजी के तेल को हल्का गर्म करके जहां दर्द हो वहां मालिश करें और एक बड़ी चम्मच तेल दिन में तीन बार लें. 15 दिन में बहुत आराम मिलेगा.

एक बड़ी चम्मच कलौंजी के तेल को एक बड़ी चम्मच शहद के साथ रोज सुबह लें, आप तंदुरूस्त रहेंगे और कभी बीमार नहीं होंगे; स्वस्थ और निरोग रहेंगे .

याददाश्त बढाने के लिए और मानसिक चेतना के लिए एक छोटी चम्मच कलौंजी का तेल 100 ग्राम उबले हुए पुदीने के साथ सेवन करें.

पथरी हो तो कलौंजी को पीस कर पानी में मिलाइए फिर उसमे शहद मिलाकर पीजिये, १०-११ दिन प्रयोग करके टेस्ट करा लीजिये.कम न हुई हो तो फिर १०-११ दिन पीजिये.


किसी को बार-बार हिचकी आ रही हो तो कलौंजी के चुटकी भर पावडर को ज़रा से शहद में मिलकर चटा दीजिये.

अगर किसी को पागल कुत्ते ने काट लिया हो तो आधा चम्मच से थोडा कम करीब तीन ग्राम कलौंजी को पानी में पीस कर पिला दीजिये, एक दिन
में एक ही बार ३-४ दिन करे.

जुकाम परेशान कर रहा हो तो इसके बीजों को गरम कीजिए ,मलमल के कपडे में बांधिए और सूंघते रहिये.

दो दिन में ही जुकाम और सर दर्द दोनों गायब . कलौंजी की राख को पानी से निगलने से बवासीर में बहुत लाभ होता है.

कलौंजी का उपयोग चर्म रोग की दवा बनाने में भी होता है. कलौंजी को पीस कर सिरके में मिलकर पेस्ट बनाए और मस्सों पर लगा लीजिये. मस्से कट जायेंगे. मुंहासे दूर करने के लिए कलौंजी और सिरके का पेस्ट रात में मुंह पर लगा कर सो जाएँ.

जब सर्दी के मौसम में सर दर्द सताए तो कलौंजी और जीरे की चटनी पीसिये और मस्तक पर लेप कर लीजिये.

घर में कुछ ज्यादा ही कीड़े-मकोड़े निकल रहे हों तो कलौंजी के बीजों का धुँआ कर दीजिये.

गैस/पेट फूलने की समस्या --50 ग्राम जीरा, 25 ग्राम अजवायन, 15 ग्राम कलौंजी अलग-अलग भून कर पीस लें और उन्हें एक साथ मिला दें. अब 1 से 2 चम्मच मीठा सोडा, 1 चम्मच सेंधा नमक तथा 2 ग्राम हींग शुद्ध घी में पका कर पीस लें. सबका मिश्रण तैयार कर लें. गुनगुने पानी की सहायता से 1 या आधा चम्मच खाएं.

Hi, I am Dr Vandana Jain, practising gynaecology and infertility specialist. My areas of interest are antenatal care and giving care and cure to infertile patients.

Nowadays mostly all women are working. Pregnancy and motherhood become a huge responsibility for them. With the host of changes taking place in a working woman right from conception to child birth a woman needs both mental and physical care throughout the entire 9-month span. It is a real challenge to squeeze in the right diet, exercise and care both to the mother and the child and focus should be on regular antenatal visits to the doctor. A few things which pregnant women should focus on are;

  • Regular antenatal checkups
  • Daily sleep
  • Eat well
  • Exercise well.
  • The doctor should provide you with additional nutritional supplementation.
  • Keep stress at bay.
  • Do not travel without informing your gynaecologist
  • Do not smoke
  • Do not lift heavy objects
  • Do not take alcohol and strenuous exercises are to be avoided.

For any query regarding pregnancy or antenatal consultation, you can contact me through Lybrate.

Tea Vs Coffee. What’s A Better Beverage?

Tea Vs Coffee. What’s A Better Beverage?
Tea Vs Coffee

Tea and coffee are the most popular hot beverages in the world. The northern side of India majorly consumes a lot of tea as its daily beverage while the southern states in India indulge more into coffee. Both contain caffeine; but have different tastes as well as addictions.

Here are the benefits as well as drawbacks of the two.

1. Caffeine - Coffee has more caffeine than tea. So if you want to stay awake or want a sudden rush of energy, choose a cup of coffee over a cup of tea. Too much caffeine though will eradicate sound sleep and can cause high blood pressure issues.
2. Acidity - Drinking tea can cause acidity to a great extent. Coffee on the other hand doesn’t cause acidity, to that extent. Never consume tea on an empty stomach; you are likely to develop gas or acidity owing to the same.
3. Overall health - Tea has a lot of antioxidants as compared to coffee. Eliminate cream, milk, sugars etc from tea and drink the decoction daily. It’s a very good anti-oxidant that keeps the overall health of a person in good condition. Tea consumed with lemon juice clears the intestine, further eliminating toxins for a healthier body.
4. Diabetes - Coffee is said to prevent the occurrence of type 2 diabetes. It doesn’t let inflammations take root causing the glucose in the body to be utilized pretty well. It also helps the body in utilizing the insulin produced by the later in a far better way than normal.
5. Nutrients - Coffee is more nutritious than tea with more calcium, phosphorous, potassium and choline. Tea simply has more folate than coffee.
Coffee might seem to have more health benefits over tea but if you have weak immunity and sleep problems, you can pick tea over coffee.

Lodhra (Symplocos Racemosa) Benefits and Side Effects in Hindi - लोध्र के फायदे और नुकसान

Lodhra (Symplocos Racemosa) Benefits and Side Effects in Hindi - लोध्र के फायदे और नुकसान

उत्तर ओर पूर्वी भारत के पहाड़ियों पर पाए जाने वाले लोध्र के फायदे बहुत महत्वपूर्ण हैं. इसका वानस्पतिक नाम सिंप्लोकास सेसिमोसा है. अंडे की तरह गोल पत्ते वाले लोध्र के फूल सफ़ेद रंग के ओर खुशबू से भरे होते हैं. इसका फल गोलाकार में चिकनाई लिए हुए बैंगनी या काले रंग का होता है. इसकी भूरे रंग की छाल औषधीय गुणों से भरपूर होती है. मुख्य रूप से दस्त, आंखो से संबंधी समस्याओं ओर ब्लीडिंग डिसऑर्डर में प्रयुक्त लोध्र के और भी कई फायदे और कुछ सीमित नुकसान भी हैं.

1. दांतों को स्वस्थ रखने में
दांतों को स्वस्थ रखने के लिए लोध्र के छाल का काढ़ा बनाकर उससे गरारा करें. ऐसा करने से मसूढ़ों से खून आना और उसमें ढीलापन ख़त्म होगा. इसके अलावा आप लोध्र के पत्तों का काढ़ा बनाकर कुल्ला करने से भी दांतों की तमाम परेशानियों से छुटकारा मिलता है.
2. तवचा की देखभाल के लिए
त्वचा के देखभाल में भी लोध्र महत्वपूर्ण भूमिका निभाता है. त्वचा की समस्याओं के लिए लोध्र, करंजा, इन्द्राव, जति और धातकी का पेस्ट कुष्ठ रोग में काफी लाभ पहुंचाता है. लोध्र का इस्तेमाल हर्बल फेसवाश के रूप में भी किया जा सकता है.
3. ब्लीडिंग डिसऑर्डर में
ब्लीडिंग डिसऑर्डर के उपचार में लोध्र को काफी उपयोगी माना गया है. इसमें फायदे के लिए 50 से 60 मिली की खुराक ठंडा जलसेक या काढ़े के रूप में देना चाहिए. लोध्र पाउडर का बाहरी रूप में इस्तेमाल करने पर ये रक्त प्रवाह को रोकने के रूप में काम करता है.
4. पीसीओएस के उपचार में
लोध्र के तमाम फायदों में एक ये भी है कि इसका प्रयोग योनी संक्रमण के उपचार में भी किया जाता है. लोध्र और तुम्बी के पत्तों का पेस्ट बनाकर योनी पर लगाने से योनी संक्रमण में राहत मिलती है. पीरियड्स के दौरान ज्यादा ब्लीडिंग होने पर लोध्र की छाल और मिश्री की एक समान मात्रा का पाउडर बनाकर दिन में 3 बार एक चम्मच कुछ दिनों तक लें. पीरियड्स के लिए 10 ग्राम खांड और लोध्र को एक साथ पीसकर 2-2 ग्राम सुबह शाम पानी के साथ लेने से पीसीओएस में बहुत लाभ मिलता है.
5. घावों को भरने में
घावों को भरने में इसका इस्तेमाल कर सकते हैं. धातकी और लोध्र का मिश्रण लगाएं. आप चाहें तो लोध्र, त्रिफला, निग्रोधा कली, घृत और खादिरा को मिलाकर पेस्ट बनाएं. इस पेस्ट को लगाने से घाव ठीक होता है जल्दी भरने लगता है.
6. आँखों के उपचार में
आँखें हमारे शरीर का नाजुक अंग हैं. इनके देखभाल के लिए भी लोध्र का इस्तेमाल किया जाता है. आँखों के सूजन या लाली में लोध्र का लेप आँखों के पलकों पर करें. आँखों में दर्द और पानी निकलने में भी इसका इस्तेमाल कर सकते हैं. नेत्रश्लेष्मलाशोथ के इलाज में भी इसके छाल का पेस्ट पलकों पर लगाते हैं.
7. मुंहासों का सफाया करने में
मुंहासे कई लोगों के चेहरे का स्वरूप खराब कर देते हैं. इन मुंहासों को ख़त्म करने के लिए लोध्र की छाल, बच और धनिया पाउडर को एक समान मात्रा में मिलाकर पानी के साथ पीसकर पेस्ट बनाएं. इस पेस्ट को सुबह शाम चहरे पर लगाएं. ऐसा करने से आपके चेहरे में निखार तो आएगा ही किल-मुंहासे भी ख़त्म होंगे.

लोध्र के नुकसान

  • जब भी लोध्र का काढ़ा बनाएं तो इसका इस्तेमाल तुरंत नहीं करें. कुछ देर तक रखने के बाद ही इसका उपयोग करें.
  • चूँकि ये स्त्री रोगों की एक प्रमुख औषधि है इसलिए पुरुष इसका ज्यादा सेवन करेंगे तो उनका हार्मोन कम होगा.
  • लोध्र हार्मोन पर काम करने वाली औषधि है इसलिए इसका इस्तेमाल हमेशा किसी विशेषज्ञ की सलाह से और निर्धारित मात्रा में करें.
  • लोध्र टेस्टोंस्टेरोन का स्तर घटाती है इसलिए इसे खाली पेट नहीं लेना चाहिए.

If You're Craving Potato Chips, Try These Healthier Alternatives

If You're Craving Potato Chips, Try These Healthier Alternatives

While you may be controlling your portions and ensuring that your meals are healthy, the snacks in between the big meals may still be causing your body harm. The packets of chips that you may open will not only add calories but other harmful chemicals as well.

There are other healthier options out there which you can use to replace it and still satisfy your cravings:

  1. Kurmura or puffed rice: A staple snack in many parts of India, kurmura comes in many varieties and mixtures that are quite popular. Some examples are jhalmuri, bhelpuri and others. While mixing it with other things, such as farsan, nuts and chana are good, excessive use of oil or sweet spices may increase its calorific value. Thus refrain from these additions.
  2. Khakra: A great Indian snack that comes from Gujarat, this is a form of flatbread, which can be consumed on its own or with chutneys. This is very low in fats and oil and is one of the tastiest snack alternatives around.
  3. Masala corn: Corn is considered to be a very healthy and nutritious snack on its own. However, you can add various types of masala or have a roast corn cob with salt and lime dressing, which is an already favoured snack all over India.
  4. Nuts: Assorted nuts, such as almonds, peanuts, pistachios can be a very filling snack without the need for large quantities of it. However, don't consume too much of it as certain varieties do contain considerable amounts of fat and thus moderation is the key here.
  5. Soya sticks: A new entrant into the Indian market, soya sticks are baked and then laced with spices. Soya tends to have protein while not much fat and thus it can be a healthy as well as a tasty snack. Soya sticks are usually laced with various kinds of masala.
  6. Chickpeas or chana: This is another snack, which can come in many forms such as roasted, boiled or even as a paste in the form of hummus. It contains a lot of protein, but very little fat. Chickpeas can be had either on their own or mixed with nuts or other forms of mixture.
  7. Baked snacks: Various forms of snacks, which are baked instead of fried can be a good alternative as well. Baked versions of potato chips and other snacks are increasingly available in stores across India.

Along with these foods, one should also go for regular full body check up, in order to know how healthy they are.

3 Types Of Vaginal Cysts And Its Treatment!

MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Agra
3 Types Of Vaginal Cysts And Its Treatment!

Vaginal cysts are closed packets of fluid, air or pus which develop along the vaginal lining. Vaginal cysts are of many types, and they are usually caused by accumulation of fluids, childbirth-related injuries or non-malignant tumors in the vagina. Usually these cysts do not yield many symptoms, but may cause a little discomfort.

Treatment might not be needed in case of cysts which are tiny. However, larger cysts would definitely warrant medical attention.

Types of Cysts-

The commonly occurring cysts are:

  1. Gartner’s Duct Cysts: This duct forms around a woman’s reproductive canal during pregnancy and it disappears post childbirth. If the duct remains even after the delivery, it may lead to fluid accumulation, thus resulting in a cyst.

  2. Vaginal Inclusion Cysts: Any injury to the vaginal walls, especially during childbirth or surgery, can lead to vaginal inclusion cysts.

  3. Bartholin’s Cyst: Bartholin’s gland is situated near the vaginal opening. A flap of skin covering this gland may lead to accumulation of fluid. This fluid accumulation usually leads to a cyst which is called a Bartholin’s cyst.

Treatment-

Usually, cysts in the vagina do not require any treatment. Most of the cysts do not grow in size and thus do not cause major problems. A biopsy of the cyst may require in order to rule out chances of cancer. A common treatment for vaginal cysts would be to sit inside a bathtub filled with warm water so that the cyst is allowed to soak in the water. If there are symptoms of infection in the vagina, then antibiotics are required.

If the size of the cyst is large and filled with fluids, then a catheter needs to be inserted into it to drain out the cyst. Usually, the catheter is kept in place for a few weeks before it is removed. A surgical procedure called marsupialization is used in some cases, wherein an incision is made around the affected area and into the cyst in order to drain out its contents.

Surgery to remove the entire cyst may also be recommended to prevent its recurrence. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

Dear user. As your first day of period is on 18 th Feb, your ovulation period could start from 26 th Feb onwards approximately. Because sperm can be alive inside vagina for 5 days, you can start having unprotected sex from 22 Feb itself. All the best. Take care.

It's prudent do get a urine pregnancy test done by yourself at home, although chances of you getting pregnant is bleak as you had taken postpone 72 and got withdrawl bleeding. If pregnancy test is negative, you may have delayed periods this time because of the pill you consumed.
