DGO, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Generally if you had been having 28 to 30 days menstrual cycle then 10to 20 day are considered dangerous days as chances of conception are meximum during this ovulatory phase. Rest of the days are safe days. But remember safe period of never safe as pregnancies have known to happen during this time too. Better use protection.

Gynaecologist,
Have you heard of emergency contraception?
Emergency contraception is postcoital contraception.
You can use either cu-t or oral pills for this purpose.
Cu-t may be tedious for you as you can not insert cu-t yourself.
Oral pills are ok.
You can use postcoital contraception within 5 days of act.
But postcoital pills are most effective when taken within 12 hours of act.
They are more effective when taken in first half of your cycle as they act by inhibiting egg formation.
If you form a habit of taking postcoital pills, they may lead to menstrual disturbance. So take them carefully.

SAFE WATER DRINKING- FACTS FOR HEALTHY LIVING

1. Lead in drinking water is absorbed more completely than lead in food

2. It account for more than 50 percent of the lead that is ingested by children

3. Municipal water supplies are controlled and regulated to prevent contamination at the source

4. However, once the water reaches the home, it is rarely regulated, tested, or treated.

5. EPA action level for lead in water is 15 parts per billion (ppb).

6. Most lead-contamination of household water is caused by copper plumbing that is joined with lead solder

7. Lead pipes may contribute to lead-contamination, but lead plumbing usually is old enough to have its inner surface coated with mineral deposits, which prevent leaching of lead into the water supply.

8. Other potential sources for lead contamination include storage cisterns, sources of water that are outside the municipal water districts, and aging water coolers and water heaters, particularly in areas where the water has a relatively low pH

9. Acidity and elevated temperature increase the ability of the water to leach lead from the solder or pipes, as does standing in the pipes for extended periods of time (eg, overnight).

10. The ability of home water filters or purifiers to remove lead depends upon the type of filter. Ion-exchange, reverse-osmosis filters, and distillation are effective in removing lead, but the most commonly available home filters (glass fiber and carbon) usually include packaging material that specifies that they do not efficiently remove heavy metals.Water to be used for cooking or drinking should come from the cold tap because hot water is more able to leach lead from the pipes. In addition, the water should be run for some time before it is collected; this flushes the water that has a higher lead content (caused by standing in the pipes) down the drain

Sir, I have a lump in my left breast for so long. Only in the left not in right. It does not hurt but is it serious problem?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
It looks like it is fibroadenoma, it should be removed after initial investigation like mammography and sonography of the breast and/or FNAC if it is painful. Fibroadenomas are not cancer and don’t increase the risk of developing breast cancer. They occur because of an increased sensitivity to the female hormone estrogen. A fibroadenoma usually has a smooth rubbery feel and can move easily under the skin. They are usually painless, but some people may feel pain. It is very common can occur in numbers. It can occur at any age. Most are about 1 to 3cm in size but occasionally, it can grow to more than 5cm. Most fibroadenomas stay the same size. Some get smaller and some eventually disappear over time. Sometimes surgery is required to remove large fibroadenomas.

First of all, get this test repeated from a different laboratory of good reputation. It may be that this test report may have varied result. Secondly, if your report is this high then your medicine dose need to be adjusted as soon as possible. In this regard, I would further advice to get tested asap and follow up on Lybrate.

To get pregnant you need to have fallopian tubes patent which is checked by hsg test and semen should be adequate quality which is checked by semen analysis. These both tests are done before the treatment of any infertile couple. Once the above tests are normal, then treatment with clomiphene citrate is started with monitoring of egg. Tests which r done for you are useless and will not benefit u. You need to consult a good gynecologist who would start proper treatment for u. Frequency of intercourse should be 3-4 times a week to get pregnant. If you are already having this frequency and you are trying for more that one year, then only you need to seek medical help. If a women’s menstrual cycle varies from 26days to 31days cycle, The shortest cycle (26days) minus18days=8th day. The longest cycle (31days) minus 10days=21st day Thus, 8th to 21st day of each cycle counting from first day of menstrual period is considered as fertile period.

Hi, This vaccine does not have any side effects. This vaccination works by making the body produce antibodies against the HPV virus which causes cervical cancer. These antibodies protect the body from an HPV infection, by fighting the virus when it attacks the cervix, thus offers protection against cervical cancer. This vaccine should be gien as early as possible in adolescent girls as this is when the best immune response to the vaccine is achieved.
