Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common disorder among women of your age. Don’t worry, a lot of females knowingly or unknowingly suffer from this but it can be controlled to a great extent by following some medications, few lifestyle changes ,good diet and exercise. The main cause of PCOS is hormonal imbalance that may or may not be hereditary. Excessive levels of androgens that are male hormones, but females also produce is small quantity, can lead to problem with ovulation in females. Confirm to me if you are experiencing these symptoms -  missed or irregular periods, excessive facial and body hair growth, cyst on the ovaries, sudden weight gain, pelvic pain, acne or mood swings? If yes, then you are most likely suffering from hormonal imbalance which needs proper attention. A good treatment can be started after proper diagnosis with the help of blood tests, pelvic examination and an ultrasound. In my many years of practice, I have successfully treated many patients for the same.

I have serious allergy problem near vaginal area mostly after period or razor apply hair growth on vagina. Den skin on that area looks like burn n black.

General Physician (AM)
Alternative Medicine Specialist, Chandigarh
Please specify whether it is pigmentation, itching, dark spot, raised, inflamed, redness, or skin shedding or you have noticed recently the dark skin? one of the most common causes of pigmentation or dark patches on the skin around the buttocks and inner thighs is chafing. The constant friction of the skin can cause the skin to darken. People who are overweight, especially around the thighs and buttocks, often face this problem. Sudden weight gain can also lead to stretch marks that occur due to a breakdown of the skin layers. Stretch marks can lead to purplish discoloration in certain areas of the skin. Another possible cause of dark patches may be intake of birth control pills. Skin pigmentation is a common side effect of these pills. Dark areas may sometimes develop due to a skin condition known as acanthosis nigricans. Here pigmented areas occur especially in the skin folds. Women with polycystic ovary syndrome may also be prone to developing pigmented patches on the body. To prevent further pigmentation, wear loose clothes that do not irritate the skin. You may also apply talcum powder on the affected skin after a shower to prevent chafing. Keep your skin healthy by regulating your diet. Avoid consuming lots of oily foods and incorporate more fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet. Drinking a sufficient quantity of water is also a good way to flush out toxins and keep the skin hydrated and healthy. Just apply lemon drops mixed with olive oil with a cotton swab on the marks. Apply the above mixture on the dark area around the vagina too. Leave it for 2-5 hours and wash off with running water and glycerin soap. Apply a homeopathic lotion containing berberis aquifolium and aloe vera extract. Apply on the marks on buttocks and also on and inside the vaginal cavity.

Hello, If pregnancy test is negative then you are not pregnant and the delay is likely to be stress induced. The symptoms are corresponding to those of PMS and indicative that you shall get your menses soon.

FACTORS AFFECTING CALCIUM ABSORPTION

M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Pune
FACTORS AFFECTING CALCIUM ABSORPTION
Incorporating healthy foods in the diet is not enough. One should understand factors affecting the absorption of nutrients from the food. Some factors are responsible for increased absorption of particular nutrient whereas some decreases its absorption. Calcium is the hardest mineral to get absorbed in the body. 30-80 % of the dietary calcium is not getting absorbed in the adult body.

Factors increasing absorption of calcium:
1. Vitamin d: vitamin d works in the digestive tract to absorb calcium into the blood stream from the walls of the duodenum. Vitamin d also helps maintain normal blood calcium level.

2. Parathyroid hormone: it increases calcium transport across the membrane of intestinal cells.

3. Acid environment: hydrochloric acid secreted in the stomach during the process of digestion is required for the absorption of calcium in the duodenum. Calcium supplements could be taken with magnesium at bedtime or between meals due to the acid environment needed in the stomach to assimilate the calcium. Always consult a physician before beginning a new supplement regimen.

4. Milk lactose: it favors absorption in infants. Lactose is acted upon by intestinal microbial flora to form acid which causes lowering of ph which makes calcium more soluble.

5. Amino acids: supplemental calcium is often chelated, or combined with protein molecules called amino acids, to help the body absorb them during digestion. Lysine and arginine increase calcium absorption.

6. Exercise: exercise along with vitamin d intake helps calcium absorption thereby making bones strong.

Factors decreasing absorption of calcium:
1. Oxalic acid& phytic acid: foods that are high in oxalic acid such as spinach, chard and chocolate, reduce calcium absorption. Oxalic acid binds with the calcium to form a salt crystal, calcium oxalate which cannot be absorbed. Phytic acid, which is found in whole-grain foods and high-fibre foods, effects calcium absorption the same way.

2. Phosphorus: too much phosphorus in the diet causes precipitation of calcium in the form of calcium phosphate.

3. Stress: stress can have a negative effect on hcl production in the stomach and on normal digestive behaviour in the body, and can therefore have a negative effect on calcium absorption.

4. Caffeine, drugs like anticoagulants, cortisone and thyroxine reduce calcium absorption.

5. Lack of exercise and vitamin d deficiency leads to decrease calcium absorption.

If you are worring abt pregnancy, then there are no chances of pregnancy as there is onset of menses this week. As you said you have experienced the menses again this week then there may be chances of you are suffering from ploymenorrhoea.

Symptoms of pregnancy? What happen first by which we have bought that I am pregnant?
Most important symptom is missed period. There r other symptoms but all of them appear 2 weeks after the missed period. Those r nausea, vomiting, breast fullness and increased urination. If you have a missed period then you should get urine pregnancy test done at home after 7 days of missed period to confirm it.

Its not 100 % safe; you can use vaginal condoms for her and then do oral sex though that also does not cover all vagina.

DGO, MBBS

There are many tiny follicles in peripheral part of ovary. Mostly it occurs in a fatty patients. It hampers regular menses bcoz there is no ovulation. You have to take medicines for that course for 3 months at least. Change your dietary habits. Avoid junk foods, reduce weight etc along with medicines.

Hi lybrate user you should avoid sex in first 3 months of pregnancy as it increases risk of abortion. Regarding tablets you are taking ask the concern person who prescribed you for what treatment. It multivitamins.
