Hi , you are just 21yrs and 6 months is not a long time so don't worry. There is nothing like hot body and don't start any medication unnecessarily. First of all start taking folic acid tab. Start keeping record of pattern of your menstrual periods that will help to calculate fertile phase and make best use of fertile phase, this will definitely help you. Try this for minimum 3 months, if no response, again contact me.

Please explain about syphilis and treatment methods and medicine for that please.

DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology), PGDHHM, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Syphilis is a sexually transmitted infection caused by the bacterium treponema pallidum subspecies pallidum. Its better cure by precaution. Precautions like:- intimate physical contact with an infected person is effective at reducing the transmission of syphilis, as is the proper use of a latex condom. Mutually monogamous relationship with an uninfected partner and the avoidance of substances such as alcohol and other drugs that increase risky sexual behavior. Prevented by screening mothers during early pregnancy and treating those who are infected. Medication taken only guidance according to doctor.

If a girl is pregnant. What are the symptoms and what should she do to avoid that pregnancy.

If a girl is pregnant. What are the symptoms and what should she do to avoid that pregnancy.
Dear lybrate-user pregnancy symptoms are many as early morning sickness frequency of urination frequent mood changes heaviness in breast and many more but you can not make a diagnosis depending upon these symptoms. For that the best way is to take a pregnancy test. And if a girl is pregnant then you can not avoid pregnancy but the only way out for unwanted pregnancy is to discontinue it. For any of the above things you will have to consult a gynaecologist.

Hcg level 61 is abnormal. So, repeat hcg every 48 hours until it rises to more than 1500 (when you should do tvs) or until it falls below 15 (when it means spontaneous resolution of pregnancy).

You cannot revert back to your previous self before deliveries, your daughters need your time. Do exercises like cycling as it is good for reducing the tummy & lower abdominal muscles including the lower reproductive tract but no jogging or running, it makes tissues lag downwards. Do yoga, lift weights -it helps tone up arms and make breasts firm. Eat a high protein diet like toned milks, eggs lots of fresh fruits and greens. Drink a glass of warm water with fresh lemon juice with a spoon of honey everyday on empty stomach. Target should be around 3-4 kgs per month, more weight loss rapidly will make you weak and unfit for routine work.

Dear Prachi, sleepiness is a way to counter extra stress that your body is undergoing due to pregnancy. No amount of supplementation helps. Just take regular 3 hourly meals, enough water and gentle walks. Once first trimester is over, you should get your energy back

Keep your spirits high. Lose more weight. For your height, you are still overweight. Oral contraceptive pills can be continued for some more time. Ask your doctor to evaluate you for hyperinsulinemia. You might need a few more drugs to control your hormonal imbalance. Myoinositol- d-chiro inositol along with vitamin D and chromium preparations are available in the market for treatment of PCOD. But the most important management option still remains to be weight loss.

Reason may be genetic cause of the embryo or any of the parents, hormonal problems, blood related problems. Now there is little scope of any precautions except repeat the scan and get prepared for the worst.

Eating Disorders and Obesity

The prevalence of childhood obesity has increased dramatically over the past few decades, and obesity during adolescence is associated with significant medical morbidity during adulthood. Eating disorders and obesity are usually seen as very different problems, but actually share many similarities. Eating disorders (EDs) are the third most common chronic condition in adolescents, after obesity and asthma.

In fact, eating disorders, obesity, and other weight-related disorders may overlap as girls move from one problem, such as unhealthy dieting, to another, such as obesity. Understand the links between eating disorders and obesity and promote healthy attitudes and behaviors related to weight and eating.

What is an Eating Disorder?

Eating Disorders describe illnesses that are characterized by irregular eating habits and severe distress or concern about body weight or shape. Eating disturbances may include inadequate or excessive food intake which can ultimately damage an individual’s well-being. The most common forms of eating disorders include Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, and Binge Eating Disorder and affect both females and males.

Signs & Symptoms of an Eating Disorder:

A man or woman suffering from an eating disorder may reveal several signs and symptoms, some which are:

  1. Chronic dieting despite being hazardously underweight
  2. Constant weight fluctuations
  3. Obsession with calories and fat contents of food
  4. Engaging in ritualistic eating patterns, such as cutting food into tiny pieces, eating alone, and/or hiding food
  5. Continued fixation with food, recipes, or cooking; the individual may cook intricate meals for others but refrain from partaking
  6. Depression or lethargic stage
  7. Avoidance of social functions, family and friends. May become isolated and withdrawn
  8. Switching between periods of overeating and fasting

What are the health risks associated with these disorders?

  1. Stunted growth.
  2. Delayed menstruation.
  3. Damage to vital organs such as the heart and brain.
  4. Nutritional deficiencies, including starvation.
  5. Cardiac arrest.
  6. Emotional problems such as depression and anxiety.

What is Obesity?

Obesity means being overweight by the accumulation of excess fat within the body. Obesity is defined to some extent by measuring Body Mass Index (BMI). People become obese by consumption of excess calories, imbalance between calories intake and calories outgoing, leading a sedentary life, lack of sleep , disturbances in lipid metabolism and intake of medications that put on obese.

What are the risks associated with obesity?

Obesity increases the risk for:

  1. High blood pressure
  2. Stroke
  3. Cardiovascular disease
  4. Gallbladder disease
  5. Diabetes
  6. Respiratory problems
  7. Arthritis
  8. Cancer
  9. Emotional problems such as depression and anxiety

How eating disorder and obesity are related?

Eating disorders and obesity are part of a range of weight-related problems.

  1. Body dissatisfaction and unhealthy dieting practices are linked to the development of eating disorders, obesity, and other problems.
  2. Binge eating is common among people with eating disorders and people who are obese.
  3. Depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders are associated with both eating disorders and obesity.
  4. The environment may contribute to both eating disorders and obesity.

Healp adolescents develop healthy eating habits:

  • Healp children learn to control their own eating.
  • Offer children a variety of healthy foods at meal and snack times.
  • Eat dinner together as a family most days of the week.
  • Be aware of your child's emotional health or else consult a psychologist
  • Encourage children to participate in sports, dance, swimming and other physical activities.
  • Counteract harmful media messages about body image. 

The splendid approach:

The approach should be quite simple. A proper diet plan, nutritious foods and fruits with proper exercise can do a world of good to you.
