For a while forget about regular periods during breast feeding. Take thyroid pills regularly and get thyroid profile checked every6 weeks. You can go for contraception with depo provera injection in lactation but regular periods will still not happen.

I am 34 weeks pregnant and I want to know after delivery which daily dite is good for me in ayurveda. And which oil is helpful for toning the body.

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), MD - Ayurveda

Dear , you can start having your regular diet post delivery. Do not try to loose weight too soon as it might affect lactation. In your diet you can have milk with shatavari kalpa as it will help you regain your strength as well as will help the baby. For toning the body post delivery especially the abdominal and leg muscles you can use chandan bala lakshadi taila for massage. Use it along with olive oil taken in proportion 1: 2 best of luck.

The reason may be infection or poor hygiene. Maintain hygiene, use cotton undergarment. Don't use ordinary soap in that area. Get blood sugar tested. And if still persists, consult gynecologist.

Pregnancy test will be positive if done 7 days after skipping of your periods. So, if you have done your test on or after 4th july and is negative then you are not pregnant. Sometimes it happens that you may miss periods. I will suggest you to go again for pregnancy test for the last time right now and if again it is negative then just relax, you will soon get your periods.

Causes and Symptoms of Vaginal Cancer

FICOG, FICMCH, FIMSA, MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Causes and Symptoms of Vaginal Cancer

Generally identified as a rare and uncommon phenomenon, vaginal cancer most often occurs in the cells present in the outer lining of the vagina, also called the birth canal. Although primary vaginal cancer is rare and unusual, there are various other types of vaginal cancer that originate elsewhere in the body, but have spread over to your vagina.

Depending upon the nature of origin, vaginal cancer can be divided into the following types:

  1. Vaginal adenocarcinoma, beginning in the glandular cells on the surface of your vagina
  2. Vaginal sarcoma, developing in the connective tissue cells and multiple cells lining the walls of your vagina
  3. Vaginal squamous cell carcinoma, originates in the squamous cells lining the surface of the bacteria
  4. Vaginal melanoma, developing in melanocytes, the pigment producing cells in your vagina

Symptoms: As vaginal cancer progresses from one stage to the next, you may experience any one of the following signs and symptoms:

  1. Diluted, watery vaginal discharge
  2. Painful urination
  3. Constipation
  4. Odd cases vaginal bleeding, for instance, after menopause or after intercourse
  5. Formation of lumps in your vagina
  6. Frequent and regular urination
  7. Pelvic pain

Causes: Normally, cancer develops when healthy cells undergo genetic mutations, subsequently leading to the uncontrollable growth of abnormal cells. Cancer cells are known to break off from pre-existing tumors and can easily spread everywhere, in what is referred to as metastasize.

Beyond the natural process of development, here are a few factors, which may further contribute to the growth of cancerous cells:

  1. Increasing age
  2. Vaginal intraepithelial neoplasia
  3. Exposure  o miscarriage prevention drugs

Me and my wife use the condom for protection during intercourse and she also washes her vagina after intercourse to avoid itching and stickiness. Now we are planning to have a baby so I do not use the condom After the ejaculation should my wife wash her vagina to avoid the stickiness or washing will hamper the process of fertilisation.

At intercourse, semen gets deposited in the vagina, during ejaculation. This semen consists of sperms and some secretions of the male body which help in nourishing the sperms. The sperms then migrate from the vagina into the cervix (mouth of the uterus) and then enter the uterus to reach the fallopian tube. The female gamete (ovum) and male gamete (sperms) meet in fallopian tube. Sperms are destoryed by contact with water, lubricants etc. So if you are trying for pregnancy, your wife must not wash herself with water immediately. Afetr intercourse, she must lie in bed for a good 1-2 hours for the semen to remain in vagina and to allow the sperms to migrate into the female genital tract.

If you have a doubt about pregnancy, you should test it with simple urine test. As she has already had menses she is unlikely to be pregnant. Sometimes because of hormonal changes or stress, menses can come like this.

But after taking just a single dose bleeding started from 11-16th sept. It was heavy.

Do not try to forcefully penetrate the vagina just to prove that you are efficient in sex. That would do more harm than good. A girl having vaginal tightness might need lubrications or even anxiolytics or muscle relaxants to relax muscles of perineum. Ask her to consult a gynecologist for the same.

I have itching in my pubic region after periods. What should I do? Please help me.

I have itching in my pubic region after periods. What should I do? Please help me.
Lichen sclerosus is extremely itchy skin condition affecting the vulva. The itching is often so bad that it can affect a sufferer's sleep. It is most common around the menopause and in girls just before puberty, though it can occur at any age. Its cause is a mystery. The skin looks thin and pale, and the area around the anus may also be affected. If it is not treated, the lips of the vulva eventually shrink, the vaginal opening narrows and sex becomes painful and can tear the skin. Consult me in private for detailed treatment in biochemic system of medicine without any side effects.

No - Why Saying it is Healthier at Times?

MSc, PGDGC
Psychologist, Chennai
No - Why Saying it is Healthier at Times?

'No' appears to be a very simple and straightforward word. However, it can be shockingly hard to say. People most of the time agree to things that they really do not want. Since they would preferably feel overburdened and low rather than disappoint somebody, saying "no" feels easier to maintain connections with people.

The repercussions of this absence of disagreement is critical. By overcommitting ourselves, we are actually consuming the majority of our positive energy and using it somewhere where you might not want to. This takes away from our common character and quality. It leaves us tired and we meet each day like it is simply one more battle. We also give up our own requirements for space, stillness, relaxation and imagination and are bound to our state.

To stay away from this, we must know about our own necessities and priorities for both mental and physical well-being and joy. For this, one may have to know when saying "yes" will fulfill your requirement for rest, relaxation or self-awareness. When one does this, their unfounded dread of not being socially acceptable from saying "no" will go away gradually.

Here are three reasons why saying "no" can prove to be beneficial:

  1. You will have additional time: The extra time made by saying "no" will, at any rate, prevent that forced clock from ticking. It will make you feel like you are in control. This can truly lighten up your mood and lift your anxiety and bolster your health. Rather than saying yes to going out for lunch or a party that you feel obligated to go to, but might not want to, simply try to say no. You will automatically feel happier when you are sitting at home, relaxing rather than forcefully socialising.
  2. You will be less remorseful: At first, you may be reluctant to state "no" because of a paranoid fear of passing up a major opportunity or the fear of missing out. As a general rule, nonetheless, in case that you need to state "no," odds are you have much better explanations for you not being there. If you do go for it, you might regret it afterwards thinking that you could have done something better with your time rather than having completely wasted it.
  3. Your associates will respect you for it: No one wants that they should be taken for granted. However, in case that you continue saying "yes" to each demand or opportunity, that is precisely how individuals will come to see you. The more you say "yes," the more individuals will generally expect things of you. This could prompt to a drop in your status and position and loss of control over others.

I spent the night with a sex worker. Will I get HIV?​

Advanced Aesthetics
Ayurveda, Gulbarga
I spent the night with a sex worker. Will I get HIV?​
The question: Hi I am a 26-year-old male and I had sex with a prostitute yesterday. I’m worried that I might get HIV. I am worried about getting it in the following ways:

We had sex twice – first time I used two condoms and second time I used only one. Do you think I should have used two condoms the second time?
She had a cold – is there any possibility of getting HIV that way?
She used an old cloth to clean my penis; could that cause HIV? She performed oral sex on me – is there any possibility of getting HIV?

Please help me. I am very worried. When should I get checked for HIV?
Here we try to answer the concerns expressed in the question in parts:

If two condoms are better than one: In case of condoms the phrase ‘two is better than one’ doesn’t hold true. In fact it’s more dangerous to use two since there’s added friction which can result in them tearing. And yes it’s possible to get HIV (if the aforementioned sex worker has HIV) even while using a condom if there’s a hole which is too minuscule to be visible to the naked eye. Here is all you should know about how not to use a condom.

If common cold could initiate transmission of HIV: HIV can’t be transmitted from one person to another the way the common cold or other flu spread. You can’t get HIV from someone if they have a cough or cold. The only way you can get HIV is through interchange of body fluids which can happen through sexual intercourse, blood transfusion, sharing injections (common among intravenous drug users) or similar methods where the blood or other fluids are transferred

If using an old cloth spread HIV: It’s impossible to get HIV from a cloth, because the virus can’t survive outside the body, it needs a temperature of 37 degree Celsius. Even if the cloth had HIV positive blood it’s a highly unlikely source of transmission.

If oral sex can lead to HIV infection: Yes it’s possible to get HIV through oral sex though the chances of transmission are fairly low.

When to go for a test: To find out when to get tested you can check out this article on testing for HIV. And finally a word of advice, not only are you risking sexually transmitted diseases like HIV but you’re also exploiting someone who’s probably been forced into that lifestyle because of circumstances beyond her control. Doesn’t that make you feel any sort of remorse? And let’s not forget it’s against our country’s laws. So stop visiting prostitutes and get a life. Read to find out if it is possible that we put an end to HIV/AIDS together.
