Me and my girlfriend had unprotected sex on the day she was about to have her periods. I didn't ejaculate inside her. After sex she had an emergency contraceptive pill within 24 hours.

Hi Gokul. The pain is due to high hormone levels in her body now because of the emergency contraceptive pill. Do not worry. She should get her periods soon. The pain and increased urination could also be due to urinary tract infection. Ask her have plenty of water, 2-3 litres a day. Also get a urine culture and sensitivity done to start antibiotic treatment. All the best

Tips for removing kidney stones: 1. Avoid tea, coffee, alcohol, cold drinks, pickles, fish, poultry, meat, spinach, and chocolate. 2. Avoid sour, heavy, and dry food. 3. Increase intake of liquids like water, juice, soup, lime water lemon soda etc. 4. Be sure to drink enough water each day. Usually 1 to 2 liters of water per day is adequate. 5. Drink more if you are perspiring heavily, working outdoors, the weather is hot, etc. 6. Increase the use of barley, horse gram (a type of bean), ginger, and brown rice or parboiled rice. 7. Avoid suppressing urges to urinate and defecate. 9. Boil 10-12 basil leaves in 1 cup of water for 15 minutes. Mix 1 teaspoon of honey in it and take twice a day. Pls send your usg report becoz medication for stones depends upon size number and location of stones and can be given after usg.

Yes but medicines may or may not be needed. All men/women are different in their sexuality and health. You need to go for check up with sexologist to know the cause and get guidance/treatment for improvement. If you value your sexual health and want to enjoy quality sex in marriage then understanding and learning about sexuality is needed. As we all believe that what we know by hearsay or porn watching is great but in fact what we all know and understand is only penetration and that's not quality sex.

Painless haeaturia is not to be taken lightly. You need full work up by a urologist who may suggest I.V.P. Examination anf cystourrethroscpy. If you are taking blood thinner medications like aspirin then also cause blood in urine. Dr. Kiran mehta.

Dear Mr. Lybrate-user, kidney stone upto 3mm diameter is expelled through urine by administering homoeopathic mother tincture berberis vulgaris q, 30 drops, thrice daily after meals, in a cup of water for 15 days. If the size of the stone is more than 3mm then it would be better to go for surgery.

Hello, Incontinence of urine is most likley due to urinary infection. You could get her urine tested for microscopy and culture and sensitivity. Elderly people have less immunity, hence they easily catch infections like respiratory tract infections, urinary tract infections etc. If you feel she has recently lost weight and her abdomen is growing bigger, I would advise her to consult a general physician who would do some basic blood tests on her and also refer her for an ultrasound scan of her abdomen. Hope this helps you Thank you.

My mother aged 63 years suffering CKD from last 3 years and on dialysis since Oct' 2013. But now she is too much irritated. Can we apply another therapy on her like ayurvedic, hakeemi or naturopathy. Is it responsive?

FIMSA, MD-Nephrology, DM - Nephrology, Critical Care Medicine, MBBS
Nephrologist, Delhi
We do not have any treatment equivalent of dialysis in alternative systems of medicine. It is also unlikely for your mother to sustain without dialysis. Therefore she must continue with it unless you have a possibility of kidney transplantation.

Dear , if you are drinking lots of water by habit which results in increased frequency then you drink as much to produce 1-1.5 liter of urine in 24 hours. Still if proble persists then get urine test done to rule out infection. If it is normal then get usg done with full bladder volume, bladder wall thickness on full bladder and post void residual volume measurement which show if there is another cause.

4 Types of Kidney Stones and Their Common Symptoms

4 Types of Kidney Stones and Their Common Symptoms

The 4 types of kidney stones and their common symptoms

Defined as hard and small mineral deposits that develop inside your kidney, kidney stones are made up of acid salts and minerals. The causes of this disease are not well-defined, although risk factors include drinking very little amounts of water and having a diet rich in sodium, protein and oxalate (chocolate and green leafy foods for example). However, knowing the type of kidney stone you suffer from can help ascertain the cause.

Here are the common types of kidney stones.

Struvite stones

This type of kidney stone is usually a response to certain kind of infection, such as a urinary tract infection for example. Characterised by rapid growth and a large size, struvite stones can develop without any warning signs.

Calcium stones

These are the most common type and are caused by a diet rich in oxalate. Risk factors for calcium stones include a diet consisting of plenty of nuts, chocolates and certain fruits and vegetables; metabolic disorders, high doses of vitamin d and intestinal bypass surgery, all of which can increase the amounts of calcium or oxalate in your urine, indicating the development of kidney stones.

Cystine stones

Those individuals with a hereditary disorder that causes their kidneys to produce certain amino acids (cystinuria to be precise) in excess are most likely to get cystine stones.

Uric acid stones

These are common in those whose diets are lacking in water or those who suffer from the excess fluid loss. People with a high protein diet and those who suffer from gout are also at risk. Genetic factors play a major role as well in increasing your risk of getting uric acid stones.

Apart from these, there are other rarer types of kidney stones that can also arise depending on a combination of an individual's lifestyle and genetic make-up.

However, to determine whether you're suffering from any of the aforementioned types of kidney stones, you must first know its common symptoms, which are:

 

  •   excruciating pain in your sides, and back, especially below your ribs
  •   feelings of pain in the groin and the lower parts of your abdomen
  •   intense and fluctuating pain that comes and goes in waves
  •   pain while urinating
  •   urine that is red, brown or pink in colour
  •   urine that's cloudy or has a foul odour
  •   vomiting and nausea
  •   constant urge to urinate
  •   increased frequency of urination
  •   urinating in small amounts
  •   chills and fever in case of an infection
