Mostly it is a fungal infection. You can try candid b cream locally twice a day for a week. If it doesn't relieve see a gynecologist.

As your tubes are blocked they need to be sorted before any medicines work and for this surgery will be needed. Other option is to go for IVF

Obvious ayurveda is much beneficial for pcod. Bcoz its a autoimmune disorder, no other pathy except ayurveda pacify the cause of pcod. According the ayurveda, meda carrying channels block so basically blocked channels is detoxified. For that ayurvedic remedies like kanchnar guggulu, arogyavardhinivati punarnava mandoor if any irregularity of periods, rajapravartini vati and patrangashav with ashokarisht to be given for a month. Then after follow up should be given by the patient of pcod.

If you want to avoid pregnancy then you have to take the pill. But these tablets have many side effects so do not do unprotected sex.

Hi doctor, I am 31 year old. My menstrual cycle had become irregular since last year since I got married. Sometimes in two months it comes. I face huge problem when it starts. I am planning to have baby please suggest what can I do to come out of this problem. My hb is 9. 5 and I have started cycling too to reduce weight and increase resistance power

Diploma in homeopathy, B. Sc

Your menstrual cycle can be corrected. The pain also can be controlled, but your weight problem will take a lot of determination - only cycling won't do at all. Every pound of extra weight inversely decreases your chances of pregnancy. I have charts. Fancy charts, but what it basically comes down to is the amount and type of food you put in your mouth. Sorry if that sounds rude - but I only wish to convey the very serious determination you require to slim down. Of course there is the gambogia fruit. Rs 3000 for a bottle, but I am told it really works.

7 Things First Time Parents Must Remember

7 Things First Time Parents Must Remember

Having a baby is a beautiful experience and it is important for first time parents to learn the ropes of taking care of a newborn. A mother should consider getting help after the birth of the child as at that particular time period can be overwhelming and hectic to take care of the baby all alone. You can get started by nursing your child by taking assistance from specialists and nurses who tell you how to change the clothes of the baby, hold the baby and how to take care of your baby.

How to take care of a newborn:
You can hire a maid who can help you look after your baby. If you have relatives, you can request them to help you out. It is important to keep the following things in mind while taking care of a baby.

  1. Babies are susceptible to infection quickly and hence it is necessary that we wash our hands properly with a hand sanitiser before carrying the baby.
  2. Make sure you carry the baby properly by providing the infant with proper support below the neck and head. The same rules apply while laying the baby down in the cradle.
  3. Do not shake the baby vigorously, even by mistake, as it can cause bleeding in the brain of the baby, which can cause death.
  4. Any member of the household should not throw the baby in the air or try any rough play as a newborn baby is not ready for it.
  5. Sponge bath should be given to the baby until the umbilical cord falls off and only after the navel heals totally. It can take about 1–4 weeks for this to happen.
  6. It is very vital that you use clean diapers for your baby, and if the diaper is wet, it must be removed immediately to avoid any rash in and around the genital area. It is important that the genital area is cleaned well by the use of cotton balls and water.
  7. In case you are using cloth diapers, then it is advisable that you clean it with detergents that are fragrance free.

Hmmm, yes nail scratch on the skin or internal vaginal linning can be one cause. Sometimes it can be pre menses spotting. It can be also due to dry vagina. Get a check up if it happens again, and yes, cut your nails!

Hello Pallobi Welcome to Lybrate White liquid secretion after your periods its normal. If it can not make your vaginal are itch or burn. If it smells, itching or burning causes such infection and for that you should have to consult gynecologist or Ayurveda Doctor. Sometimes by travelling, Hard work, tiredness can cause white discharge. It needed to take high nutritional food and should have to avoid junk food and outside food. Otherwise, its normal and not to worry.

I am 5-6 week pregnant. I have heard that eating raw coconut early morning makes child healthy and fair. So I am consuming first sugar candy (1 tsp ) with little ghee and then eat little raw but fresh coconut as first thing in morning. Is it safe for early pregnancy ?

A good diet to the mother is always good for the child. Coconut pulp and water is rich in natural electrolyte content which keeps the mother healthy. Mother's circulation delivers these things to the child making him gain weight and provide enough amniotic fluid around the child. Cannot comment upon the claims of fairness as these are not substantiated scientifically.

15 Questions You've Always Wanted to Ask Your Gynaecologist

There are many questions a woman may have in mind for her gynecologist, but never asked them. Here are 15 such questions along with their solutions.

  1. Does my vagina smell unpleasant?: You should shower it with water and gently wipe it with a wash cloth before any test. Applying perfume makes the smell even worse.
  2. What to do in case the feet stink?: You should wear fresh and clean socks before going for the test and getting in the stirrup, which is a metal device for convenience of gynaecological tests.
  3. In case of a period, should I cancel my test appointment?: A gynaecologist is not afraid nor disgusted by blood as blood is a part of the specialist's profession. If you have heavy bleeding, you can call up the nurse for suggestions.
  4. What if the doctor or nurse judges my body?: Your gynaecologist does not care about your body and is more concerned about your problems and how to solve them.
  5. What if my legs are unshaved?: Your gynaecologist really does not care about your legs or underarms or any part of your body. Your problem is the only concern for the doctor.
  6. What if my shaved hair looks ugly?: As stated before, the gynaecologist is only concerned about your problem and nothing else. Use a sharp razor to prevent bumps or ingrown hair.
  7. What is the speculum?: It is a device used by your gynaecologist for opening your vagina in order to observe the cervix or look for infections on the vaginal wall.
  8. Why do I urinate in my pants if I sneeze, laugh or cough?: This is a common phenomenon for women who have given birth and is easy to treat.
  9. Is my vaginal discharge normal?: Having a small amount of white vaginal discharge is quite normal.
  10. What does the gynaecologist check inside my vagina using hands?: The bimanual exam is done using the hands to detect problems in the uterus.
  11. What if I do not like birth control means?: There are over 50 methods of birth control and many pills you can choose from.
  12. Can I ask about my sexual problems?: Absolutely yes, as it is quite an important issue.
  13. Can my partner or family accompany me to the test?: Yes, they can, but during the time of the test, they should leave the room.
  14. Can I discuss my relationship problems?: Your gynaecologist should know about any issue you are having.
  15. If I am having forced sex, should I tell? :Such matters should be conveyed immediately.

You can ask your gynecologist any question, which bothers you, without fear.

Hello, she is likely having her normal menses which were due by 1st week of june anyhow and hence she bled within 3 days of pill intake, not due to the pill but naturally. This bleeding further rules out pregnancy.

Why it's not safe to have sex in pregnancy in 1st 3 months? What are the consequences??

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
Why it's not safe to have sex in pregnancy in 1st 3 months? What are the consequences??
Yes. Although It is absolutely safe to have sex in the first trimester in a normal pregnancy. But under certain conditionsyou must prohibit from making sexual contact if your wife- • have a history or threat of miscarriage • have unexplained vaginal bleeding or spotting • have abdominal pain or cramps • have a history of cervical weakness • are pregnant with twins or multiple babies • have a low-lying placenta (placenta praevia) You may also be advised to avoid sex during pregnancy if you have genital herpes. If your wife catch genital herpes for the first time during pregnancy there's a small risk that it could affect the developing baby. You may have to use a condom if you suffers from any sexually transmitted diseases.
