Hi I have PCOD problem. Now I want conceive twins. Which pills is helpful to produce superovulation.

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

Pcos generally have ovulation problems, and there are no medicines which can confirm that you will have twins. Follicular study is done from 9th day of your cycle on alternate days which shows which day exactly you are ovulating. See a gynaecologist for this.

By mistake sperm sticking to my fingers get into my gf vagina is there any risk of pregnancy.

By mistake sperm sticking to my fingers get into my gf vagina is there any risk of pregnancy.
Once sperm comes into direct contact with air, it is dry and dead and cannot travel to fertilize an egg. Sperm cannot come back to life once it has dried on the hand, even if it get wet. She can not get pregnant as there was no penetration nor any sperms gone inside the vagina. For getting pregnant enough sperms has to be deposited inside the vagina.

Treatment for ovarian cysts through Ayurveda

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), MD - Alternate Medicine
Ayurveda, Karnal
Treatment for ovarian cysts through Ayurveda

Ovarian cysts is a common problem that affects women in their childbearing years. These cysts develop inside the ovaries at the time of ovulation.

These cysts are of four main types:

  1. Polycystic ovaries

  2. Endometriosis

  3. Cystadenomas

  4. Dermoid cysts

In most cases, ovarian cysts resolve themselves, but in some cases they can cause pain and grow.

Ayurveda is a holistic form of alternate medication that can be quite effective when it comes to treating ovarian cysts. This form of medication has negligible side effects and hence, can be prescribed to women of all ages. Apart from medication, Ayurveda also involves changes in lifestyle and diet. Ayurvedic herbs help balance the hormones in a woman’s body and thereby improve the overall functioning of the ovaries as well.

Some of the Ayurvedic herbs used in the treatment of ovarian cysts are as follows:

  1. Guggul: This herb has the potential to revitalise cells and can rejuvenate a person. Guggul or commiphora mukul also has purifying properties that helps regulate lipid production and increase iron levels in a person’s blood. It also helps in weight loss and increases metabolism.

  2. Shilajit: The Ayurvedic herb asphaltum or shilajit improves stamina and the ability to deal with physical and mental stress. It is also known to increase sexual desire and enhance libido for both men and women.

  3. Amalaki: Amalaki or emblica officinalis is best known for its ability to rejuvenate cells and rid the body of free radicals. It also helps boost immunity, aids in the development of healthy skin and slows down the aging process. Amalaki helps with digestion and boosts metabolism along with maintaining the proper functioning of the liver.

  4. Aloe: Aloe is the most common Ayurvedic product used for skin care and anti-ageing products. Apart from skincare and hair care, aloe also helps relieve hypertension and has well known antioxidant properties. Additionally, it helps deal with high blood pressure and respiratory problems.

  5. Vitamins and minerals: Some vitamins and minerals boost immunity and have the ability to destroy abnormal cells such as cysts. Zinc helps prevent ovarian cysts, helps the body get rid of free radicals and aids in normal cell growth. Vitamin B complex helps in converting excessive estrogen into less weaker forms and hence balances hormone levels. Antioxidants like vitamin A and E protect the cells against damage and abnormal changes in the cell growth. Vitamin C also helps boost immunity and gives the body the ability to fight illnesses and infections. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ayurveda and ask a free question.

Get complete evaluation of yourself and your husband. This will help you conceive. And give your urine for culture sensitivity in lab. So doubts about urinary infection vanish off.

Dear Mr. Lybrate-user, I appreciate your concern that your wife has not conceived for the last 5 years post your marriage. Generally 5 years is enough time to have a child under normal circumstances. Both your wife and you need to consult a gynaecologist and have a series of tests to find out the reason for the infertility. Bear in mind that in a third of the cases each the fault may lie with either the husband or the wife and the remaining third could come in the unexplained infertility. Your wife would need to be examined and some blood tests and an ultrasound would be asked for. For you primarily a seen examination would be essential. Don't lose hope sometimes it is only a minor problem which could be set right with medication. You may contact me with your reports etc. Best of luck. Dr. Anup khosla.

This happened for three days and then it stopped itching in the day time but for the past 3 days its been itching at night as soon as I go to bed.

Hello Lybrate User, Different types of infections may cause itching or an abnormal discharge in the vagina. It is associated itching or irritation. Causes include - Infections spread during sexual contact. These include chlamydia, gonorrhea, and trichomoniasis. Vaginal yeast infection, caused by a fungus. Normal bacteria that live in the vagina that overgrow, causing itching and fishy odor. These are few reasons behind vaginal discharge and redness and itching. Follow this tips - * Keep your genital area clean and dry when you have vaginitis. Make sure to seek help from health care provider for the best treatment. * Avoid soap and just rinse with water to clean yourself. Soak in a warm but not hot bath may help your symptoms. Dry thoroughly afterward. * Avoid using hygiene sprays, fragrances, or powders in the genital area. Use pads and not tampons while you have an infection. * Allow more air to reach your genital area. Wearing loose-fitting clothes and not wearing panty hose. Wearing cotton underwear (rather than synthetic), or underwear that has a cotton lining in the crotch. Cotton increases airflow and decreases moisture buildup. * Know how to properly clean their genital area while bathing or showering. Wipe properly after using the toilet -- always from front to back. Wash thoroughly before and after using the bathroom.   Along with that take homeopathic treatment. When a woman experiences no relief from external treatments, a homeopathic remedy to balance the vital force will help the particular infection. If you want to take a homeopathic treatment consult me privately on Lybrate. Take care.

I am 18 years old and I am an boy. I have a big lumb on my right chest since 2 years. The left one is normal but the right chest appears like a breast.

Advanced Aesthetics, M.Ch - Plastic Surgery, MS - General Surgery, MBBS

To the best of our knowledge no medicines or creams work to decrease the breast size. Male breast or gynecomastia reduction. Gynecomastia is treatable by surgery. There is no medical treatment. It is a one day out patient surgery with very gratifying results. It boosts self esteem also. It is a 1 day hospital stay surgery. It takes 1 day for consultation and investigation and 2nd day surgery and discharge in 3-4 hours. The Dr. Can examine and tell you what is the problem, gynacomastia has a breast tissue and a fat component. No one wants surgery unless it is necessary. There is no medication which can give the results. Surgery is the only answer. The surgery is almost painless because there are enough medications to keep the pain under control.

My wife's 37 weeks starting scanned report stated nuchal cord loop seen (once). Admitted and monitored four days then found no improvement. As per our doctor advise operation done and our boy baby 2.959kg born. But his breathing observed fast as well as jandish also found so still he is in hospital under monitoring. Please help me your suggestion as well as our baby future growth. No other observation found and now he is taking mother milk by manual feeding. How long will take to give mother direct milk feeding? please advise me.

Diploma in Endoscopic Surgery, DGO, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Dear, fast breathing at birth is mostly transient and subsides of its own. This and jaundice are not due to nuchal cord, which is mostly an incidental finding until your doctor finds a reason for operation. Your child under observation is improving and if doctors allow, which I am sure they will by now then encourage maximum direct latching to mother's breast. Take the help of expert nurses who will teach your wife correct method of breast feeding. Happy parenting and joy to you!

Dear Lybrate user It's normal that aome of the semen comes out after sex ,but this doesn't mean that conception will not occur. There is enough semen left inside for pregnancy.Still,for better results,your partner should keep lying for atleast 15 minutes to ensure that maximum amount is retained inside

Firstly are you sure that it was your ovulatory phase and not your menstrual date. If yes then bleeding after intercourse in ovulation phase before taking ipill is something to worry about, but not in terms of pregnancy as I do not think that you are pregnant.-----------------------------
