Me and my gf had unprotected intercourse on 9th June. She took an I pill on 10th. She was a Virgin, but she's bleeding daily. In the starting blood's quantity was negligible. But she has stomach ache from then. And now her period date has arrived yesterday. And she is bleeding more than she has ever bled before. She's feeling very weak and she keeps getting body ache, head ache and stomach ache. Please suggest something.

She should immediately see a gynecologist. This could be dangerous. You are doing a very bad thing. Unprotected intercourse without marriage is not a right thing to do with your gf. Basically are you a friend or her enemy who can spoil her life.

Is there any treatment of hepatitis B when it is genetic ? Pls ans.

MBBS
General Physician,
Recent advances in use of gene therapy to treat hepatitis B virus infection. Bloom K1, Ely A, Arbuthnot P. Author information Abstract Chronic infection with hepatitis B virus (HBV) occurs in approximately 5 % of the world's human population and persistence of the virus is associated with serious complications of cirrhosis and liver cancer. Currently available treatments are modestly effective and advancing novel therapeutic strategies is a medical priority. Stability of the viral cccDNA replication intermediate is a major factor that has impeded the development of therapies that are capable of eliminating chronic infection. Recent advances that employ gene therapy strategies offer useful advantages over current therapeutics. Silencing of HBV gene expression by harnessing the RNA interference pathway has been shown to be highly effective in cell culture and in vivo. However, a potential limitation of this approach is that the post-transcriptional mechanism of gene silencing does not disable cccDNA. Early results using designer transcription activator-like effector nucleases (TALENs) and repressor TALEs (rTALEs) have shown potential as a mode of inactivating cccDNA. In this article, we review the recent advances that have been made in HBV gene therapy, with a particular emphasis on the potential anti-HBV therapeutic utility of designed sequence-specific DNA binding proteins and their derivatives.

I am the 22 years old guy, I have three disturbing problems which depressed me badly: An average student not able to bring good marks to proud my parents about myself, which make me sad and depressed as my parents investing money to my education. Secondly, since my father’s death I feel low about myself as what to do in future, I feel like sky is crashing on me, family pressure, the more I fight the more I shatters, for my father I did not do anything, thirdly I am in love with someone but she dnt loves me, I tried to show her but she dnt try to understand my feelings. She loves somebody else. First time I loved someone. I fight with her but she don’t understand my feelings. All these feelings strangles me and I can’t control them and these shatters me totally. I don’t get sleep for all these things sometimes. I don’t like to eat. But my father’s death hits me strongly as I pains me so much. Sometimes I feel I have nowhere to go. Sometimes I feel why god took him why not me as I feel worthless since my childhood. Feels I am walking in dark. Nobody is there for me. What to do? How to control these feelings before it will late to be better?

You may be going into aa self-pity mode and this will ruin all your hopes and aspirations. If your father is dead and you want to be grateful for all the money that is spent, then you will work harder and do everything well. But by pitying yourself you can go on messing up your life and become useless in the end. If you are genuine you will really do all that you ought to do and come out with flying colors. If you father dies when you were a teen I could see the severity of the loss. "Even so for his sake and yours you must push yourself to do better than others. Having a girlfriend in the middle of all this is also bad planning. Which girl will want to be with you if you do not do well in life? Again if you are serious about a girl, show your worth and prove that you are deserving of this girl. In my opinion, you have chosen the wrong girl, in the sense that she is already seeing another boy. In your place, I would determine to look fit, study well and develop good character. In these developments, you will not only be a success but you will be an attractive proposition for any suitable girl! So get up early and go for regular exercise, eat well and healthily, sleep well and be responsible with your academic pursuits.

Hello please doctor help me I have high fever its almost kill me, please doctor help me and what should I do?
Hello, Take Schwabe’s Alpha-CF and Biocombination-11, both after every 2 hourly for 4 days. Management: -Sponging or bathing with tepid water. The use of a fan or air conditioning may somewhat reduce the temperature and increase comfort. If the temperature reaches the extremely high level of hyperpyrexia, aggressive cooling is required. -Take rest and drink plenty of fluids. -Take light, bland, properly cooked home-made healthy food only. **********Consult again if the fever is accompanied by a severe headache, stiff neck, shortness of breath, or other unusual signs or symptoms.***********

Iam suffering form fever what medicine can I use for curing it.

AUTLS, CCEDM, MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
General Physician,
Iam suffering form fever what medicine can I use for curing it.
Fever is not considered medically significant until body temperature is above 100.4 F (38 C). Fever serves as body's natural defences against bacteria and viruses which cannot live at higher temperatures. Also, the body's defence mechanisms seem to work more efficiently at a higher temperature -Fevers of 104 F (40 C) or higher may be dangerous and demand immediate treatments like: -Acetaminophen (dolo-650 mg) twice or thrice can be used to lower a fever . Aspirin should not be used for fever in children/ adolescents or during a viral illness. -Wear loose fitting clothes and don’t overdress. Overdressing can cause temperature to rise further. -Tepid water (85 F [30 C]) baths may help bring down a fever  -The body should be cooled with a wet sponge. -A fever can cause severe dehydration. Drink plenty of fluids.. Have citrus fruits, particularly Vitamin C rich ones like mausami, Amla juice etc.  -Take light and easily digestible home cooked meals like sprouts.avoid outside food -Wash hands frequently with soap and water especially after returning from public places or public transport.  -Further therapy depends on the cause of fever like urinary infection/typhoid or malaria/dengue infection and the accompanying symptoms that need to be investigated and treated accordingly

Follow these simple steps to ensure a good sleep every night and stay away from sleep disorders and other health problems associated with unhealthy sleep habits: 1) maintain a regular sleep routine - try to get at least 6 to 7 hours of uninteruppted sleep at night time go to bed at the same time. Wake up at the same time. Ideally, your schedule will remain the same (+/- 20 minutes) every night of the week. A good sleep hygiene routine promotes healthy sleep and daytime alertness. 2) avoid sleeping during the daytime. It can disturb the normal pattern. 3) avoid caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol near bedtime. While alcohol may speed the onset of sleep, it creates problems in he second half of sleep. 4) exercise can promote good sleep. Exercise should be taken in the morning or late afternoon. Yoga, can be done before bed to help. 5) have a quiet, comfortable bedroom. Set your bedroom thermostat at a comfortable temperature. Generally, a little cooler is better than a little warmer. Turn off the tv and other extraneous noise that may disrupt sleep. Background'white noise' like a fan is ok. If your pets awaken you, keep them outside the bedroom. Your bedroom should be dark. Turn off bright lights. Have a comfortable mattress. 6) avoid heavy meals close to bedtime. 7) ensure adequate exposure to natural light. 8) avoid emotionally upsetting conversations and activities before trying to go to sleep. Do not think of, or bring your problems to bed. 9) stop using all your digital devices and stop looking at digital screens be it mobile phones or televisions at least 1 hour before the time you plan to sleep. Instead try reading a fiction book near bedtime so it makes you help relaxed and de-stressed. Sleep well live healthy and live longer. If you have tried all these and still have problems, please consult me for prescription medication. High fiber diet a high fiber diet includes more than 25 g of fiber per day. Many hemorrhoidal symptoms reduce when dietary changes are made. Addition of fiber supplements to already existing diet is a good plan. Toilet habit retraining and stool softeners patients should sit on the toilet seat only for the time required to evacuate the lower bowels. Persistent straining or prolonged sitting can lead to increased size of hemorrhoids. Stool softeners can be taken to soften stools if there is hard stools which can cause undue straining while going to toilet. Adequate water intake. Adequate amounts of water can ease the passage of stools.

I have headache for last week. What should i do?

DNB (ENT), MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist,
Hi . Headache for one week is a long time. This needs a detailed evaluation with a neurologist as it can be migraine or a cluster headache. There are over 150 causes of headache. Before that you must rule out any change in eye power or presence of sinus infection. Therefore an ophthalmologist and ent must also be consulted. In the mean time you can take tablet dolo 650 mg once in morning and night for 3 days or when headache worsens.
