Hello- Since you perform sex after a large gap, it is causing problems in your pregnancy. Prolonged gap of sex in men makes his sperms immotile. It does not have big effect on female health but yes white discharge is going to minimize your chances of pregnancy. I recommend you both to start of medications and you can fulfill your dreams of a baby.

My friend was taking primolut n for 3 days to delay the periods as her marriage was fixed on 25th Feb. And her periods date was 21st Feb. She didn't get the periods on time so to delay the periods she was taking primolut-n dosage from 23-25 Feb twice a day. So taking a dosage of primolut-n will affect d process of ovulation? What are the chances of getting pregnant after 25th? Does she has to take contraceptive pill to avoid pregnancy?

Sir. Me and my girlfriend had sex last month. August 10 was her menses date. We semen didn't enter into her vagina, but there may be a chance for rubbing there. She swallowed my semen a lot during sex. Is that the reason for late menses date. Including today ,it became 6th day after date of menses. So did she get pregnant or swallowing semen will delay periods? Help me please.

Swallowing semen doesn't cause pregnancy but if by any chances even by rubbing semen has entered vagina then it could be better test her urine for pregnancy to confirm the status.

I am a female of age 16 yrs. I have just noticed that one of my breast is bigger than the other. I don't know from how many days it is. Why this is so? Is this any symptom of ovarian cyst or breast cancer? I am really very worried. Pls tell me.

Dear user asymmetry of breasts is a very common finding and need not be worried until the size discrepancy is too much. Breast ptosis is the term used for loose breasts. It happens either with ageing as the skin and fibres in body become loose or in very lean patients or with sudden weight loss. Mastopexy is the surgical option for loose or assummetric breasts; in this the breast becomes firm and also is lifted from sagging. Giving proper shape to breast increases the aesthetic appearance of breasts. Consult a plastic surgeon for that.

Having ipill most time will it affect me in pregnancy, first of all ill be pregnant? Should I stop taking pill.
It cannot be used as a regular contraceptive method and is quite unhealthy if taken more than twice a month. 3. The pill is to be taken soon after unprotected sex. It should be taken preferably within 24 hours and before 72 hours or else the pill may turn useless.

Dear lybrate-user as you said that your misses is suffering from the ovarian cyst. It could be due to hormonal imbalancein females during puberty time and during menopausal time .and shows marginal calcification which we call it as a hardening of the cyst. So with the help of homoeopathic treatment. With out any side effects we will dissolve the cyst completely only by intake of oral medicines with out any surgery.

Periods frequency and quantity changes with age due to hormonal changes. As long as they are regular and moderate flow you need not worry. As you are above 40 you must go once in 2-3 years to your gynaecologist for a routine check up.

Emergency Contraception!

MBBS, MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Emergency Contraception!

Emergency contraception refers to method of contraception that can be used after sexual intercourse

Methods of emergency contraception are

  • 1insertion of cu-t within 5 days of sexual contact
  • 2 emergency contraceptive pills --tab levonorgesterol (i-pill, unwanted 72) to be taken within 72 hours but are more effective if taken within 24 hours
  • Tab ulipristal acetate 30 mg
  •  3.3-5 tablets of oral contraceptive pill.

Tab levonorgesterol 1.5 mg single dose is most commonly used emergency contraception. Here we will be discussing emergency contraceptive pill -levonorgesterol (ecp)
 
Ecp prevents pregnancy by delaying ovulation (egg release). It does not interrupt an existing pregnancy

 Ecp should be used in following conditions -

  • Unprotected intercourse
  • Concerned about regular contraceptive failure. Like condom tears or slips. Missed pill for regular 3 days etc
  • Incorrect use of contraceptive
  • Sexual assault

Ecp prevents 95% of pregnancy if taken within 72hours of unprotected intercourse

There are no medical contraindication to use of ecp but it should not be used regularly, after the use of ecp a regular contraceptive method should be resumed. Like oral contraceptive pill or iucd or injectable contraceptives

Side effects of ecp use are-

  • Nausea, vomiting, breast tenderness, abdominal cramps, headache, dizziness
  • Regular intake of ecp may cause menstrual irregularities like--- 
  • Inter menstrual spotting
  • Delayed or early periods
  • Heavy periods
  • Amenorrhea

 If periods are delayed after intake of ecp urine pregnancy test should be done

Thus emergency contraceptive pill should not be considered an alternative to regular contraceptive method. Regular contraceptive method should be adopted and ecp should be used only in emergency.

Why Your Antibacterial Hand Wash May Be More Dangerous than Soap

Why Your Antibacterial Hand Wash May Be More Dangerous than Soap

We are bombarded with advertisements of how 'good mothers' never fail to have their children use antibacterial soap as a habit. But does it really work? There have been several reports of potentially harmful ingredients being used in these antibacterial soaps and yet their sale continues unhindered. Let's dive in to get the dope behind these soaps.

What are antibacterial soaps?

A drug called 'triclosan' was originally used strictly in hospital environments. In the 1990s the commercial manufacture of antibacterial soaps started with this ingredient in its center and fear mongering and advertisements pushed this into a whooping $1 billion industry. There is murky data on the FDA approval on triclosan usage and guidelines which are leaving us only with information the manufacturers propagate about it. But with enough information out there on the internet, should you wait for manufacturers to prove its effectiveness or make a judgment call? Here are a few facts to help:

1. It is as effective as conventional soap: There are countless studies and researches done in the last four decades that proves that antibacterial soaps are not more effective than regular soaps and the added triclosan doesn't proved any special health benefits. These tests measure the amount of bacteria in one's hand before and after usage. But the real question is do antibacterial soaps reduce infection rates and the answer to that question is yet to be proven.

2. It has the potential to create antibiotic-resistant bacteria: The main benefit of using these products is its bacteria resistant formula. With frequent usage, some bacteria gain resistance to the chemicals. Eventually, while the soap kills off regular bacteria, the resistant bacteria can spiral into a local or global threat.

3. It can disrupt endocrine functions: Triclosan closely resembles the thyroid hormone and can bid to its receptor sites. This can lead to many problems like infertility, artificially-advanced early puberty, obesity, and cancer. This problem has been found during animal testing and yet not proven for humans. With so much threat on the loose, would it matter how effective or ineffective the antibacterial soap is against bacteria?

4. It can lead to problems in children: At a growing age, children are developing their immune system and natural resistance to diseases. Prolonged exposure to antibacterial soap can result in reduced exposure to bacteria which prevention the proper development of the child's immune system.

5. It is bad for the environment too: The more triclosan we use, the more gets flushed down the drain. The problem arises because triclosan isn't fully treated at sewage treatment plans and enters water bodies where it disrupts algae's ability to perform photosynthesis. The spin ball effect reaches all sea animals and plants and eventually comes back to attack us in ways we are yet to find out.

The solution to this problem is to use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that is effective on both bacteria and viruses. If you are wondering how you can add bacteria resistance to your family without any added harm, consult a doctor today.
