Contraceptive pills do not usually cause swelling on kidneys. However emergency contraceptive pills are known to cause pain in abdomen and irregular menstrual bleeds. So it is advisable to start any medications after consulting a gynaecologist only. To avoid conception/ pregnancy it is worthy to use a barrier contraceptive like condom.

Hi, this is a very good question, every parent must ask. Every girl must learn the basics of menstrual hygiene so to avoid infection. She should follow _ 1- bathe at least once a day to clean herself & avoid odor. 2- cleaning of vaginal area and hands properly & frequently. Always wash vagina externally, with mild soap specially formulated for this purpose. 3- vagina must be cleaned from front to back and try to keep vaginal and anal wiping separate. Cleaning of vagina from back to front will increase the risk of vaginal and urinary track infection. 4- frequently change sanitary pads as dampness will irritate skin and will promote infection. 5- don't use same brand of sanitary pad for long duration. 6- avoid tight clothes & synthetic fabric as these will irritate skin and will increase dampness. Wear cotton & loose fitting clothing to stay fresh and dry. This care must be followed all through the month also.

Dear if the female partner with 38 tries for pregnancy, it may bring birth defects in baby as the quantity and quality of eggs decreases by this age. So you can opt for egg donor ivf. Regards

Single loop of cord around the baby" s neck is found in around 25 % pregnancies. It interferes with delivery only in some by hindering the decent of babies head but is not and indication to caesarean section but can cuase the need of emergency cesarean if it hampers normal delivery. The delay during vaginal delivery and the possibility of it becoming tight during vaginal delivery may shut off blood supply to brain of baby temporarily which may not happen in all but to avoid such thing completely may be you have been offered lscs.

Endometriosis reduces success rate of any fertility treatment including IVF. We need to know how unhealthy the tube is. If there is hydrosalpinx, we may need to go for removal of the tube before IVF.

Hello, a pregnant woman should take utmost caution of what she eats. A nutritious diet rich in proteins, iron, calcium and omega 3 fatty acids is recommended. Overall besides normal food make sure she takes a big glass of milk daily, 2-3 eggs in a week, chicken/ fish twice a week, take 2 helping of fruits and salads daily. Taking 5-6 almonds alone a piece or two of walnuts daily should overall take care of your nutritional requirements. Hope this helps you.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Vagina is elastic enough to accommodate even a child during childbirth. Vagina returns to its original relaxed state soon. To improve the firmness of vagina, kegal exercises can be used. This kegal exercises strengthen the pelvic area and therefore improving vagina tightness. Take care.

Swine Flu in Pregnancy

Swine Flu in Pregnancy

What is Swine Flu?

It is a respiratory(associated with breathing) disease caused by a virus. This virus is similar to the influenza virus responsible for causing the common cold.

The scientific name of the virus is H1N1 type A influenza virus.This strain was earlier known to infect pigs(swine family), thus the name swine flu.It is a new strain of the virus, previously unknown in humans, hence, there is no known immunity in humans against this virus.

What are the symptoms:

There are three main symptoms :

Fever,
cough,
shortness of breath.
and a combination of one or many of these:

Headache, aching muscles, running nose, sneezing, chills, tiredness, loss of appetite, vomiting, and diarrhea.

It is usually a mild disease for most people. Symptoms appear quickly and last for almost for one week to ten days.


How do I know if I am at higher risk?

Certain categories of people seem to be at higher risk for complications from swine flu. These are:

Asians, especially people living in poorly ventilated colonies.
People having associated ailments like - asthma, diabetes, paralysis, previous strokes, spinal problems, and jaundice.
Extremes of body weight;very thin built or obese people.
Smokers
Teenage mothers, women in their second and third trimesters are at higher risk.
How can swine flu harm my baby?

For the majority of pregnant women, swine flu does not cause any serious damage to the mother or the baby.

Fever in the first three months may increase the risk of neural tube and birth defects.
Fever during labor may cause neonatal convulsions, encephalopathy, cerebral palsy and fetal death.
Pregnant women should always take fever seriously and contact their doctor when the temperature goes more than 100 degrees.

How does swine flu affect me during my pregnancy?

Active infection by swine flu virus may cause miscarriages, preterm delivery, and adverse delivery outcomes.
There is a higher risk of hospitalization/ ICU admission during pregnancy.
Chest infections/ Secondary bacterial infections are common resulting in pneumonia or even brain infections.
What can I do to protect myself?

Protection can be at three levels:

1) Taking general precautions- which is most useful for prevention.

2) Use of vaccines.

3) use of drugs

Use of face masks will not prevent swine flu. Focus instead on hygiene and clean surroundings.

It is safe to consume well cooked pork and pork products.

Hello, the pain during initial 2 days of start of menses is due to uterine contractions to shed the old endometrium out, however if the pain lasts for all 4-5 days and also there is pain during intercourse, then a possibility of endometriosis needs to be evaluated with an ultrasound pelvis. For pain relief during menses you may take nsaids safely. Regards.

The problem is simple. Try weight loss by diet and exercise and half of your problem will be solved. Irregular periods can easily be regularised after some tests and then advising drugs. Low sperm count is not a headache at al. Many of my patients conceived with even zero sperm count. So, don't get afraid. Good luck.
