I have irregular menstrual cycle. Its been 3 months since I got my periods. Sometimes, I have period which releases very less blood that I cannot identify that I got periods. Before 3 months, I consulted a doctor and she gave me some tabs and himalaya's medicine to keep my cycle in check. After her prescription, I got my periods regularly for a month. But then, it again stopped and I didnt have periods for 3 months now. Should I go for scanning? Whats the reason behind this?

The reason behind this is improper lifestyle. You could go for ultrasound to rule out pcos. If it is pcos, then you need proper medication to improve your status.

Some times with some individuals such things do happen when things don't go as per their wish or their plans and this builds up unnecessary stress. These negative feelings sometimes may appear insignificant to a layman but they are significant enough to increase stress and release of stress hormones in the body. In your case similar thing is happening. You are not able to deal with those negative feelings. Many people must have suggested you to make corrections in your thought process, or do YOGA or do meditation moreover you are yourself more or less aware of your situation but still you are not able to come out of it. In such cases homeopathy can surely help you provided you provide us all your health and stress related details which will help us find out a right homeopathic medicine for you that will help balance your stress hormones and you will be able to deal with it more positively. You should try homeopathy treatment for couple of months.

In the womb, a baby’s brain develops from neurons moving outward from early precursor cells. After the neurons move, they grow extensive dendrites (the input part of a neuron) and axons (the neuron’s outputs). These early stages are driven by genetic instruction. At birth, a baby has many, many more neurons than it will use as an adult (100 billion!); the baby also has more synapses A baby’s experiences with its parents and its social and physical environment help “prune” and selectively “sculpt” those connections that are being used, resulting in the eventual cell death of up to 50% of cortical neurons. The connections that are used become strengthened and more efficient. Many studies have shown that providing an enriched physical or social environment at this time can subsequently improve learning and memory, encourage exploration, and decrease fearful responses to novelty. It can also reduce the impact of genetic or environmental risk factors. Cells in the brain—called gray matter—develop throughout childhood and adolescence and then decrease in number. The axonal connections—called white matter—develop into adulthood.

Medical abortion is given to the patient to take at home only with the condition that the patient has access to medical facility. There is a chance of heavy bleeding with any abortion. But in the unfortunate occurrence of heavy uncontrolled bleeding at home you need to be near a facility. You won't be able to manage it at home. Better to go to nearest nursing home or hospital and take misoprost ok there if you are very far away.

You r suffering from pcod as you r overweight and irregular menses. Primary objective of your treatment is weight reduction and maintain normal bmi of 18-25. This will regularize the monthly cycles and also help you get pregnant. You can take metformin to reduce weight. You don? t need to take any medicine till 3 months for the menses to come. Only after 3 months of missed menses you should take medicines like progesterone tablet (deviry 10 mg twice a day for 5 days) for getting menses. For reducing your weight you should have brisk walk or jogging for 4-5 km daily, high protein diet (fish, chicken, mutton without fat, pulses, mushrooms), low carbohydrate diet (avoid rice, chapatti, bread, poha, upma, idli, dosa, potato, sugar etc and can use bhakri instead) and low fat i.

Hi Doctor, I would like to know few doubts related to my wifes health. Its now about 6 months after our manage. marriage happened on Aug 2015. Later after some time it was found that my wife have PCOD and she started taking tablet for 3 months. In 3 months period got regular and as per advise from doctor the medicine was stopped. After that from Jan 2015 we are trying for Kid and till now no success. Recently about 3 weeks back she started showing many symptoms like vomiting tendency, black out in front of eyes, getting tired soon and we consulted doctor. Doctor advised it was because of anemia and gave few iron tablets. Routine using, blood and thyroid test happened. No pregnancy test was advised or done by doctor. For our satisfaction we used pregnancy kit and it has not shown any positive results till today. Now she is having vomiting tendency early morning and at times she tells she have sour/sweet taste in mouth and skips away food. Now, its already time for next period, Her period date should happen between 10th - 15th of month. For this month Feb period did not happen. Last period there was more bleeding one one day alone. Last period happened on Jan 10. Now its Feb 25 and period did not happen yet. Today morning we did pregnancy test and kit showed negative. My doubts are: a) Is she still having PCOD? B) IS this anemia? C) Is the kit showing wrong result. Should we confirm pregnancy through blood test or something? D) She is very much slim, will the PCOD cause problem for her in pregnancy?
