Hello, The most common cause of irregularity in menses is stress induced hormonal imbalances during the cycle. So keeping de-stressed and healthy can keep cycles regular, if previous cycles have been regular.

For making regular your period these are some instructions given below: • Take proper diet full of nutrition . Eat green leafy vegetables and seasonal fruits and a glass of milk daily. Eat a fruit daily . • Do Not take stress because stress causes imbalance in hormones of female and make your menstrual cycle disturb and make your ovulation disturb .Do some meditation for maintain hormonal balance. • Do jogging and running exercise daily .If you are obese lose some weight this is also a cause of irregular periods. • Do skipping regularly for 2 to 3 minutes daily. • you can take these medicines for regular periods. Syrup Dashmolarishtha or ,syrup EVECARE of himalya. 2 tsf daily once in a day after meal but only under the guidance of ayurvedic doctor. .• Practice Yogasana like Chakrasana & Pawanmuktasana daily under the guidance of yoga expert. • Check out Thyroid hormone level & if your T3, T4 , TSH hormone are abnormal then get treatment of it to make your periods regular. You can consult me privately for more detailed treatment & doubts.

Eat five to six small meals every day. Keep quick, easy snacks on hand, such as nuts, raisins, cheese and crackers, dried fruit, and ice cream or yogurt. Spread peanut butter on toast, crackers, apples, bananas, or celery.

Hi, I think you should be in contact every 2 to 3 days after her periods stop. It will increase chances of pregnancy. Otherwise you can use the ovulation detection kits from day 11 onwards. Be in contact when ovulation happens. Hope I have answered your question.

I agree with the gynaecologist. Irregular periods often cause confusion in whether the girl is pregnant or not. After one pregnancy, the hormones will get balanced and won't be so problematic.

Risk of pregnancy with protected sex is less. If her period is delayed by 1-2 week, do pregnancy test after consulting doctor.

Leprosy: Treatment and Prevention

MD - Dermatology , Venereology & Leprosy, MBBS

Leprosy: Treatment and Prevention

Mentioned throughout history as a curse, leprosy was considered as a punishment of sins by many cultures as it was widespread and common. However, modern science demystified it and de-stigmatized it to the point where the occurrence of leprosy within the population has gone down to very low levels, although it is still prevalent among certain populations.

Prevention of leprosy: Leprosy is caused by the bacterial infection of Mycobacterium leprae and it is classified into multiple types. Leprosy is communicable through contact with common objects or a person by infected droplets within their nose. It primarily affects mucous membranes and the skin and the nerves on the hands, feet, and in extreme cases may cause disfigurement as well. There are no specific ways to prevent leprosy as no specific correlation between transmission and development has been found so far. Leprosy can happen through one time contact or through contact over extended period of time within the same household. Thus preventive measures will primarily include the following:

  1. Regular checkups by going to the doctor
  2. Ensuring that surfaces are kept clean if you share a household with a leprosy patient
  3. Skin biopsies at regular intervals just to check if you may have contracted the bacteria
  4. If a rash has developed, then it is urgent that you visit the doctor. Earlier the leprosy is detected, quickly it can treated and resolved

Incidences of leprosy have reduced over the last few decades due to improvements in medicine and early detection. This has allowed people to nip the problem in the bud and does not allow it to spread within their bodies or to other people.

Treatment of leprosy: The primary weapon that modern medicine has against leprosy is known as MDT or multidrug therapy. Multidrug therapy is the combination of multiple drugs, which attack the various aspects of leprosy, such as skin problems, nerve damage, loss of sensation, deterioration of skin conditions etc. This is the proven way to not only reduce symptoms, but also cure the problems in the long run.

Some of the drugs in the MDT used are as follows:

  1. Rifampicin and dapsone
  2. Rifampicin and clofazimine and dapsone
  3. Rifampicin, minocycline and ofloxacin

However, the combination will depend on the type of leprosy the person is affected with, such as paucibacillary leprosy or multibacillary leprosy and thus can only be prescribed by the doctor after thorough and detailed examination.

Is it natural to get belly bloated during menstrual days especially the first day when I get dysmenorrhea. Before menstruation starting also I had my stomach bloated to some extend. Basically I am not an obese or something but only my stomach appears bloated. Its due to what? Please reply.

Yes. Abdominal bloating is a common complain associated with menstruation. Around the time of menstruation, the level of female hormones in the body fluctuates. Oestrogen is one such hormone which also causes water retention. This gives rise to the feeling of heaviness/ bloating.

Hi, let me first reassure tyou that you don't have cancer. Your symptoms are in line with any young girl with menstrual disturbances. Most common cause of such disturbances is hormonal imbalance. Leutinizing hormone is a hormone which has various functions, and its value varies all through your menstrual cycle, peaking during ovulation. So gynecologists do the test to get an idea of the same. You need not worry about that. Just follow whatever medications/ hormonal treatments your gynecologist suggests. Once your cycles become regular, and hormonal imbalances settle down you will improve. Hope this helps. Take care. Regards

3 factors are important are important to reduce your belly fat post delivery. 1. Diet. Ensure that you don't consume more than 2000 calories in a day. 2. Belt. You can start using an abdominal belt as a support increase the tone of the muscle. 3. Exercise. Abdominal and exercises will burn the fat. You can also use fat burners and body contouring that are available at most cosmetic clinics. Cryolipolysis is the latest method in reducing body fat using a machine.

Yes this is frustrating for anyone. You need to begin with open communication about sexual relationships and creating bonding between you and your spouse. Basically you need to ask her about her thoughts and feelings regarding lovemaking i. E. Sexual intercourse. Such issues are common in many girls/women since beginning of humanity due to apprehensions and fear about sexuality. It happens due to lack of quality understanding of basics of sexual relationships. What men/women know and understand about sexuality and relationships is via half-hearted hearsay guidance and porn watching. Also sexuality is stigmatized as bad since childhood specially for women. Solutions lie in open communication and interaction with an expert sexologist along with your wife. Sexual relationships in couples is a part of life and basis of lifetime bonding. Therefore it needs to begin with proper understanding and in right way where both man and wife enjoy in a quality way. Move on for proper guidance with expert. All the best.
