There are many causes for accumulation of fluid in foetus ranging from infection to congenital anomalies to negative blood group. My advise is get an anomaly scan from a qualified doctor and thorough investigation to know the exact cause. Also one has to be clear about viability of foetus before prolonging pregnancy.

I m having itching in vagina.This is not bcoz of UTI infection.I use vaginal tablets n cream of itching too.But all in vain.Plz suggest me some test of medicines.I maintain hygiene too

DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology)
Gynaecologist, Bangalore
Get a culture and sensitivity test for a high vaginal swab. This will not only detect the causative organisms but will also give accurate information about which medicines will work for a permanent relief. If you are sexually active, request your partner to take the same antibiotic course with you. Meanwhile, make sure to use condoms. Also, do consider taking a cervical cancer vaccine. Use a good pH balanced feminine hygiene wash like Lactacyd Lotion twice daily to maintain local hygiene. Vaginal nsertion of Cap. FHeal twice daily for 15 days may also work to hasten recovery and prevent recurrence.

If it is a question of unprotected intercourse then it is better to take I-PILL rather than nothing to prevent any unwanted pregnancy, It is usually safe ; can cause nausea, bloating, breast discomfort and occasionally irregular periods.

STDs And its Symptoms

MBBC, MD
Sexologist, Pune
STDs And its Symptoms

With changing times the nature and effects of virus and bacteria are also changing and due to this, one of the biggest risks of unprotected sex is catching a sexually transmitted disease or STD. An STD can be contacted by any form of intercourse including oral, vaginal and anal sex.

STDs are serious diseases that should not be ignored and require treatment and medication. Some common STDs are:

  1. Chlamydia
  2. Hepatitis B
  3. Genital Herpes
  4. Syphilis and
  5. Gonorrhea 

The only way to protect yourself from an STD is to abstain from unprotected sex and always use a condom. Sometimes STD infections have no symptoms and can remain dormant for years, hence it is essential to get yourself regularly treated for STDs if you have more than one sexual partner.

On the other hand some STDs have visible symptoms such as:

  1. Skin rash: A rash in the genital area is most often a sign of STDs. This can be in the form of bumps, sores or warts. It may or may not be accompanied by itchiness. A rash caused by a STD usually results in redness and inflammation. Herpes sores may subside within a week or so but just because the rash is gone does not mean the infection has been treated. Hence even if the rash disappears before your doctor's visit, ensure you mention it. 
  2. Painful urination: A burning sensation or pain while urinating is a symptom for a number of STDs. There may also be a change in the colour of urine. Some STDs associated with painful urination as Chlamydia, gonorrhea and trichomoniasis. However, this may also be triggered by kidney stones or a urinary tract infection. 
  3. Painful intercourse: Pain during intercourse is one of the most overlooked symptoms of a sexually transmitted disease. While a little pain may be normal, any sudden increase in pain or new type of pain should not be ignored. This should be kept in mind especially when having intercourse with a new partner or if there is a change in sexual habits. When it comes to men's sexual health, pain at the time of ejaculation can be a symptom of a STD.
  4. Abnormal discharge: Abnormal discharge from the vagina or penis can be a symptom of a number of infections not all of which are STDs. Strangely coloured and odorous vaginal discharge can be a symptom of yeast infections or a Sexually transmitted disease like trichomoniasis or gonorrhea. Bleeding in between periods can also be a symptom of a STD.  Abnormal discharge from the penis can be a sign of Chlamydia, gonorrhea or trichomoniasis. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a sexologist and ask a free question.

Hi Me and my Gf had protected sex before 15 days there was a white discharged on condom. I checked whether its break but it was not break and now after 15 days she had white discharge on her undies? Is she pregnant what should we do or natural foods to postpone pregnancy?

DGO, MD, MRCOG, CCST, Accredation in Colposcopy
Gynaecologist, Kolkata
If she has missed her periods it is important she should do a urine pregnancy test. White discharge per vagina is not a sign of pregnancy. In order to avoid an unwanted pregnancy regular contraception should be used like pills, injections or coils. There are no foods that are known to be effective.

You should get your ultrasonography done. Also check for your thyroid profile. If nothing abnormal, you can take a course of contraceptive pills daily one starting from 5th day of menses for 21 days for 3 months. That may regularise your cycle. Even if it doesn't, you can have hormonal essay done.

As such no serious reason is seen but due to frequent urination chances of infection or? calculi may be there. Drink plenty of water and coconut water and sugar cane juice, avoid spicy food for few days. May take two tablet of chandraprabhavati or tablet bangashil two times in a day with coconut water for ten days and report.

Hello, The delay can be stress induced and as pregnancy is ruled out she can opt for a withdrawal bleed with progesterones.
