Dear lybrate-user, egg is released usually between 24-48 hours after the injection. We cannot know on ultrasound about egg fetilization. The earliest way to know about pregnancy is to go for a blood test after 12 d of ovulation.

Bed Sores: Causes and Complications

DGO, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Bed Sores: Causes and Complications

Continuous pressure on skin often results in injuries to the underlying tissues, causing what are generally known as skin sores. Though they generally occur in areas that cover bony areas like hips, ankles and tail bones, the part below the waist is most susceptible to them.

There are multiple reasons that cause bed sores. Some common causes include

  • Immobility
  • Inactivity
  • Poor nutrition
  • Smoking

However there are other more important causes that contribute to this disease. They are:

1. Constant pressure: Continuous immobility often causes pressure on the skin that further damages it and the underlying tissues. Tail bone, hip bone, ankles and heels are more prone to bed sores due to lack of movement. However similar damage is also detected in elbows, spine and ribs.

2. Friction: The friction that is caused when the skin rubs against another surface or when two layers of skin rub against each other, those that were moving in two opposite directions also result in bedsores. Sudden sliding down the chair or being transferred from a bed to a stretcher are common reasons behind it. 

3. Excessive moisture: Bed sores are also caused by excessive moisture that softens the skin and also reduces its resistance. Profuse perspiration and unchecked urination are important causes. If untreated immediately there are plenty of complications that arise from this disease. Few of them are: 

  • Infections: Skin sore causes multiple infections on the body like Cellulitis and Osteomyelitis. Cellulitis results in painful, red swelling of the skin that often oozes out fluid. On the other hand in Osteomyelitis, an infection is caused in the bone resulting in swelling over the affected area. Blood infection called Bacteremia is also caused due to skin sores. 
  • Septic arthritis: In this there is severe pain and swelling of a joint making it hot, red and tender.
  • Meningitis: Caused by the infection of the fluid around brain and spine, this disease causes severe headache with stiff neck and nausea. 
  • Squamous Skin cancer: This occurs if the skin sores remain unchecked for a long period of time. In this, the skin feels patchy and often bleeds.

Hello, you have to follow the same protocol in next cycle and follicular monitoring would have to be done to check for ovulation and then possibly an iui procedure can be done for you.

Which Food Items Should Be Avoided When on Homeopathic Medicines?

BHMS
Homeopath,
Which Food Items Should Be Avoided When on Homeopathic Medicines?

Homeopathic medicine is the field of science that involves the production of medicine using natural herbs and other substances. In this, the extracts are obtained from different sources and mixed together in right dosages. These dosages are prescribed by homeopathic doctors since they are able to understand how each extract serves a different purpose, and that they would be effective in their action only if they are combined in the correct proportion. An increase or decrease in the level used can render a homeopathic medicine ineffective or make it harmful for the body. Along with the medicines, doctors also usually suggest some dietary precautions that need to be followed. And here is a list of some food items that the doctors advise their patients to stop taking while undergoing homeopathic treatment. 

Food items to avoid

It is said that each food item has a power and effectiveness level of its own and needs to be taken in certain quantities so that you can enjoy its full benefits. This is also one of the major reasons why people who are taking homeopathic medicines are advised to avoid a few food items that might be a regular part of their diet, in order to make sure that that particular food does not interfere with the action of the medicines. This is true in cases where, some foods with strong odour or taste can hinder the medicine's action by overpowering its effectiveness. 

So here is what you should avoid: 

  1. Drinking alcohol, chewing tobacco and smoking must not be continued when you are taking homeopathic medicines.
  2. Most doctors advise the patients not to take coffee, garlic and mint leaves, since these have strong odours and tastes. But coffee at times may not be restricted, since in few medicines, coffee beans are used for grinding the crude extract. 
  3. Non vegetarian foods might have to be avoided during the time period of medication if so advised.
  4. Sour foods like sour fruits or sour curd must be avoided in case you are taking medicines for skin disorders.
  5. Spicy and oily foods and other foods that give out a pungent smell must be avoided if medicines are being taken for gastric problems. 
  6. Artificially treated foods and foods made with preservatives need to be avoided, if the person has to take the medicines for kidney problems like kidney stones and renal failure. 
  7. Patients who are taking medicine for diabetes must avoid drinking aerated drinks.

Generally, people are told to take their meals at the right time and no irregularity must set in when it comes to this.

Even if ejaculation was done outside chances of pregnancy is always there since sperms can leak so if periods are not in time, it is best to do a urine pregnancy test, just to be sure.

If your pregnancy test is -ve, you might have done too earlier or Your delayed menses may be the result of your stress. As stress plays an important role in irregular menstrual cycle. *When you're under physical or emotional stress, your body produces the stress hormones adrenaline and cortisol. Elevated levels force the brain to decide which bodily functions are essential and which are nonessential until the stressful event is over. Things like blood flow to the muscles and oxygen to the lungs increase while others, like digestion and the reproductive system, may stop temporarily in extreme cases.  Other factors causing delayed menses like change in schedule, hormonal imbalance, increase or decrease in weight.
