There are no lumps on my breasts but they are sagging with wrinkles and tiny pores ,there is pain in my left chest since 1 week, is it breast cancer.

General Physician,
It is not breast cancer. Doing pushups may not improve the appearance of the actual breasts, but by strengthening the muscles behind the breasts, it can give your bust a slight lift. (And will be great for your back and shoulders too, of course.)

What is clitoris? Which parts of female is clitoris? How I stimulate her clitoris for a minute?

What is clitoris? Which parts of female is clitoris? How I stimulate her clitoris for a minute?
. Clitoris is a small gland of projection at the superior aspect of vagina from where thin frills of inner lips of vagina arise. It is one of the most erotic area that has most nerve endings, so is when rubbed can give you lot of pleasure. It is not wrong to fulfill your desires by either fingering your vagina inside or rubbing the clitoris. Any way fingering the vagina or rubbing in that area, is a way of pleasing yourself. By this you are not disturbing your virginity and not doing wrong. Though I have elaborated here but still further any question let know.

How Climbing Stairs Can Help Burn Calories?

How Climbing Stairs Can Help Burn Calories?

The last few decades have seen obesity has grown as the new social evil.  One of the major culprits is the reduced physical activity and sedentary lifestyle that has become the norm. It is therefore not surprising that weight loss is on everybody's personal goals.  In a lot of cases, ironically, the methods and techniques have involved turning the clock back, what was being done a couple of decades ago. Let us look at using stairs for example. From an engineering point of view, elevators and escalators were a major focus area in the 1900s and 2000s.  However, now, stair designs that are easy on the body are the highlight.

Let us look at some facts related to weight loss and climbing stairs. These should provide you sufficiently good reasons to start using the stairs next time when you have a choice.

  • Fact 1:  Climbing stairs help burn more calories per minute than jogging. It is declared as a 'vigorous exercise'. 
  • Fact 2: Climbing a step helps you burn about 0.2 calories and going down burns 0.05, so to burn 1 calorie, all you need to do is go up 5 steps or go down 20 steps.
  • Fact 3: However, though the number of calories burned is less by going downstairs, the muscles and joints used for getting down stairs are different. Using stairs to go up and down should be regularly practiced.
  • Fact 4:  Climbing stairs require about 9 times more energy than sitting and about 7 times more energy than required to take the lift.  
  • Fact 5: For going up or down 3 to 4 flights of stairs, taking the stairs helps save about 15 minutes of valuable time (most of it waiting for the lift to arrive).
  • Fact 6: Regular use of stairs safeguards you against heart disease, diabetes, muscle weakness and stroke.
  • Fact 7: Endorphins are released when you climb stairs, which also induce a feeling of well-being.
  • Fact 8: Overweight people burn more calories by climbing stairs.
  • Fact 9: Taking one step at a time in more beneficial than taking two at a time. Calories are burned gradually, but more efficiently.
  • Fact 10: Climbing stairs is eco-friendly as well, as it reduces carbon emissions. Just another reason why you should avoid the lift! If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a physiotherapist.

As you are HIV negative, the baby will be HIV negative. Will my baby be at risk? Your baby can be at risk if you become HIV positive whilst pregnant and your viral load is very high. Returning to using condoms every time you have sex after you become pregnant is essential. You are at higher risk of catching HIV during pregnancy. A high viral load is one of the main risk factors for transmission. Transmission to the baby can occur at 3 stages. During pregnancy At the time of delivery Through breast-feeding. However, there are interventions to reduce the risk of transmission to the baby during pregnancy and birth. These include: Taking treatment from the second trimester in order to ensure that you have an undetectable viral load by the time of delivery Not breastfeeding and giving baby a course of treatment for the first 4 weeks of life.

Hello. I am 19 years old female suffering from pcos. My doctor gave me diving 10 for 7 days and asked me to wait for 15 days so that my periods will come but they didn't. My pcos was recently discovered and I have no other symptom than missed period for 2 months. Wht could be the possible reason they didbt come even after taking med? Also now he has started me on krimson 35 but I feel very nauseous after taking it and feel like vomiting. Does krimson 35 have any long term side effects? Do women with pcos have no have of pregnancy?

Pcos is not a disease but a body pattern developed because of deranged lifestyle. You are not ovulating that is why you are not having periods. There is no point taking krimson 35 because you will have regular periods till you r on the tabs but once you stop the tab then periods would return back to the same condition. Ideally your treatment is necessary once you get married. Please keep a track on your weight, if weight increases so will the problem be.

Dengue Fever - Causes, Treatment, and Management

MD
General Physician, Mumbai
Dengue Fever - Causes, Treatment, and Management

Dengue fever is a painful infection transmitted by the bite of one of the 4 closely related viruses that are carried by a type of mosquitoes known as Aedes mosquitoes. The infection is not directly from one person to another.

Symptoms: After the mosquito bite, symptoms set in about 4 to 6 days and can last up to 10 days (as noted below). Most are general symptoms which can be seen with any viral infection and therefore most dengue cases can go undetected.

  1. Sudden high temperature
  2. Pain behind the eyes
  3. Severe headache
  4. Swollen lymph nodes
  5. Severe bone and muscle pains (this can lead to suspicion of dengue)
  6. Fatigue
  7. Nausea and vomiting
  8. Skin rash that appears 3 to 5 days after the onset of fever
  9. There could be in some cases gum bleeding, easy bruising, or nose bleeding

The dengue triad of symptoms is fever, headache and the skin rash. This could lead to suspicion and blood tests that can lead to diagnosis.

The acute phase lasts for about 2 weeks in most cases and there is no antibiotic (it is a viral infection) cure for it. The treatment is therefore symptomatic, aimed at reducing fever and pains.

If left untreated, especially in children, a severe case called as Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever (DHF) can occur, which affects children under 10 years of age and can cause failure of the circulatory system. This can also occur when a person is developing dengue for the second time. This is a serious form and can even lead to death; therefore the symptoms should be taken seriously and attended to immediately.

Diagnosis: Confirmation of dengue is through a blood test, where the virus is tested for.

Treatment: Being a viral infection, antibiotics are not effective against dengue. Pain killers with acetaminophen are preferred. Aspirin is avoided, as it can worsen bleeding. Complete bed rest, hydration and good nutrition are essential parts of the treatment. Being under medical supervision also helps watch out for complications. There is a vaccine under development that could become available in the next couple of years.

Prevention:

  1. Always use mosquito repellents, even indoors
  2. While being outdoors, use clothes that cover the arms and legs fully
  3. Use a mosquito net if your area is highly infested with mosquitoes
  4. Ensure the windows and doors are closed during the evening
  5. If you are suspicious of having dengue, reach out to the doctor
  6. Reduce chances for mosquitoes breeding by keeping the house clean
  7. If there are family members with dengue, protect yourself and them from mosquitoes

Preventing dengue is the best way to manage it; however, if once infected, the person develops immunity to it. Reduced immunity can put the person at risk of developing the condition again.

It may so happen because even you practice intercourse in the best time (around ovulation), chance of having pregnancy is only 20-25%, if all the parameters of you and your husband are normal.

Fallopian cysts are usually benign. There is no medical treatment available specially as you are pregnant. And it usually does not harm the pregnancy. It is best followed up after you have delivered.
