5 Questions You're Too Embarrassed to Ask Your Gynecologist

5 Questions You're Too Embarrassed to Ask Your Gynecologist

No matter how outspoken you may be, something happens to us in a gynecologist's clinic. And though we have a million questions, most of them stay unasked. However, it is important to be frank and open with a gynecologist to ensure good sexual health. To make it a little easier, here are the answers to five embarrassing questions.

Is vaginal discharge normal?

A little vaginal discharge is a normal occurrence in all women. This discharge is a way for the vagina to cleanse itself. The amount of vaginal discharge varies from one woman to the next and also depends on your menstrual cycle. It is very easy to differentiate between healthy and unhealthy discharge by merely looking at it. Normal discharge is clear, whitish or light yellow. If your vaginal discharge is excessive or thick and odorous and accompanied by itching, you should see a gynecologist at the earliest.

Will hormonal birth control affect my libido?

Hormonal birth control affects each woman in a unique way. While for some it can cause weight gain, for others it can result in a weakened libido. This is because hormonal birth control suppresses ovulation and thus controls the production of natural hormones. If you feel your sex drive is being effected by your pills, talk to your gynecologist for alternative birth control techniques.

How can you make intercourse less painful?

Sex should be a pleasurable experience for both partners. However, sometimes, the act of penetration can cause discomfort to women. This is mainly because of a lack of lubrication that results from not being turned on enough or nervousness. You could experiment with lubricants and sexual positions to make this more comfortable. Also, go slow and take your time enjoying foreplay to stimulate your body.

Why is there an odor from my vagina?

Just because your vagina has a strange smell, it does not mean that something is wrong. The fluids in a woman's body are affected by a number of factors including her diet, hygiene, sexual activity and infections. Good hygiene habits can control most odor problems. If it persists, odor may be a sign of a yeast or bacterial infection and should be shown to a doctor immediately.

Why do I leak urine when I laugh or sneeze?

Many women after giving birth are subject to urinary incontinence. This is mostly due to weak pelvic floor muscles after pregnancy and a drop in estrogen in post menopausal women. Simple exercises can often help strengthen your pelvic muscles and hence prevent leaking. In more serious cases, a gynecologist will also be able to prescribe medication for the same.

No question is too silly or too embarrassing to ask a gynecologist. So, choose your gynecologist with care and ensure that you are comfortable discussing your intimate health with her.

Hi lybrate-user, as you have completed term and your baby is avg weight. Cs mainly depends on type of pelvis, type of breech. If your baby is having legs down chances of cord coming out would be higher. Coz of complications of vaginal breech delivery your gynae would suggest you cs.

Try sitz bath. I understand that you mean anal fissues (you have written-fisher) potassium permagnate crystals in warm water in a baby tub, sit in it for few minutes, it works like chemical cauterization (burning or shrinking the tissue by chemicals, other cartery is electrical, which we use in major surgeries to stop blood from bleeding vessels) do write back after 2 weeks. Since problem is chronic, you can give her some more time before going for surgery.

Skipping Breakfast is Harmful

MD - Medicine
Endocrinologist, Ahmedabad
Skipping Breakfast is Harmful
Skipping breakfast increases PpHg after lunch and dinner in association with lower Iglp-1 and impaired insulin response. This study shows a long-term influence of breakfast on glucose regulation that persists throughout the day. Breakfast consumption could be a successful strategy for reduction of PpHg in type 2 diabetes.

Does vagina becomes tight if I give 2 year gap but before I do sex 6 7 times in a month for about year means 6 7 times every month so now m giving gap for 2 year due to some reasons so in these 2 year my vagina becomes tight and I nvr had pregnancy and I do not hav children but only sex has ben done 6 7 times every month for about a year and now m waiting so if now I wil not do anything for 2 year does it become tight tell me detail please.

Yes. Vagina is an elastic tube. If you do not use it, it will become tight. But you need to understand that sometimes the painfull intercourse might be due to lack of lubrication, in which case using the right lubricant will ease the intercourse. You also need to relax as sometimes resumption of sex after a long gap can give rise to vaginismus, which is psychological in cause leading to a spasm of vaginal muscles.

I am 27 yr old married woman, I have diagnosed with ruptured cyst after doing a ultrasound today. Is there any chance that it can be ectopic pregnancy? I had pain in my left abdomen and from past 2 months my menstrual bleeding days got reduced from 5 days to 3 days.

No it should be a functional ovarian cyst. Your pain should settle down in a weeks time. To be very sure you can do a urine pregnancy test as well.

Tips to cut down on sugary foods

PGDHHM, BDS
Dentist, Gurgaon
Tips to cut down on sugary foods

Sugary foods and drinks can cause tooth decay, especially if you eat them between meals. The longer the sugary food is in contact with the teeth, the more damage it can cause. The sugars found naturally in whole fruit are less likely to cause tooth decay because the sugars are contained within the structure of the fruit. Sugars are also added to a wide range of foods, such as sweets, cakes, biscuits, chocolate, and some fizzy drinks and juice drinks. These are the sugary foods that we should cut down on.

Tips to cut down on sugars

For a healthy, balanced diet, cut down on foods and drinks containing added sugars.
Instead of sugary fizzy drinks and juice drinks, go for water or unsweetened fruit juice
Swap cakes or biscuits for a currant bun, scone or some malt loaf with low-fat spread.
If you take sugar in hot drinks or add sugar to your breakfast cereal, gradually reduce the amount until you can cut it out altogether.
Rather than spreading jam, marmalade, syrup, treacle or honey on your toast, try a low-fat spread, sliced banana or low-fat cream cheese instead.
Check nutrition labels to help you pick the foods with less added sugar, or go for the low-sugar version.
Try halving the sugar you use in your recipes - it works for most things except jam and ice cream.
Choose wholegrain breakfast cereals, but not those coated with sugar or honey.

That is correct. The menstrual abnormalities need to be controlled with thyroxine supplementation. Once your tsh levels are back to normal you can try to conceive.
