You cant get rid of it as it is a genetically linked condition. However most of the symptoms can be brought under control by optimising your body weight.

Its better for you to consult with an expert directly because correct diagnosis of the problem is absolutely important for best treatment. Avoid half hearted measures like Patanjali because further complications in vaginal area will spoil your quality of sexual life and you are already having burning and pain. You may connect expert online or in person, either me or anyone nearby as you choose but be quick for your own good because giving sitting at home solutions wont help you in right way. Please value your body.

General Physician,
There are three different ways to start taking birth control pills. First Day of Period Start: Start your pills on the first day of your period. Continue to take one pill every day at the same time. With this method, you do not need to use a backup method as the pills are effective in preventing pregnancy right away.

Gynaecologist, Kolkata
I am presuming you have a positive pregnancy test. These symptoms are very common in the first three months of pregnancy. Please get a complete blood count done to see you are not anaemic. Take folic acid supplements daily. You can take tab doxinate - 2 tab at night time and 1 tab twice daily before food to see if it helps. Also have lots of water /fluids like juices/ lassi to keep yourself well hydrated. The symptoms usually settle as pregnancy advances.

PCOS - How To Get Pregnant With It?

Gynaecologist, Delhi
PCOS - How To Get Pregnant With It?

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a disorder of the endocrine system in women. It has been found that women suffering from PCOS have enlarged ovaries. These bigger ovaries contain fluids called follicles. During an ultrasound examination, these follicles are seen. If you are suffering from irregular or prolonged menstrual periods, acne, obesity and uncontrolled hair growth, you can get yourself tested for PCOS. However, doctors have failed to determine the exact cause of PCOS. This condition can have dangerous consequences and affect the overall health of the patient. If left untreated, it can cause type 2 diabetes or heart diseases. 

What happens in PCOS? 
Women suffering from this disorder experience a hormonal imbalance in their body. The hormone changes triggers multiple issues in the body. Sometimes, body produces excess of sex hormone. Women may develop masculine features due to over-production of male hormones or androgens. There might be imbalance in insulin levels, increasing the risk of developing diabetes

What causes PCOS? 
Surprisingly, the exact cause of PCOS is not known. Researchers have not been able to pinpoint the exact cause for developing PCOS. However, some believe that the cause has hereditary links. 

Symptoms of PCOS 
The symptoms of PCOS are usually mild in nature during the initial stage. In the beginning, only few symptoms are detectable. These include acne, obesity, extra hair growth on face, thinning of hair on the scalp and irregular periods. The symptoms often get unnoticed by the patient first or they relate those of the pregnancy

Conceiving with PCOS 
In case, you have been detected with PCOS and it is the reason behind your infertility, you must not get dishearten. You have a possibility to induce ovulation. One can opt for fertility medications. These drugs have shown success in ovulation and pregnancy.

Some of these are as follows: 
1. Metformin. It helps to regulate the amount of insulin in the blood. It also helps to resolve fertility issues. 
2. Clomiphene citrate. It stimulates ovulation
3. Gonadotropins. These are known to be hormone shots, which cause ovulation. 
4. Letrozole. This drug is known to block estrogen production. Instead, it increases production of follicle-stimulating hormone. 
5. Ovarian drilling. If fertility medications fail, doctor may try doing a surgery known as “ovarian drilling.” In this method, a surgeon inserts a needle through the abdomen of the patient to destroy a smaller portion of the ovaries. This lowers the androgens produced by the ovary.

Remedies for a Blocked Nose

MS - ENT(Gold Medalist), MBBS
ENT Specialist, Delhi
Remedies for a Blocked Nose

A blocked nose is not only annoying, but extremely discomforting. Several reasons can be held responsible for it and common cold is certainly not the only one. Some other reasons include:

  1. Flu
  2. Allergy
  3. Sinus

Therefore, the remedial measures for blocked nose vary, depending on the cause that led to it. Some of the ways by which you can redress this problem are:

  1. Use a humidifier: Sinusitis is often held responsible for a clogged nose, a condition that is almost always accompanied by severe pain. In such a situation, placing a humidifier in a room proves to be extremely beneficial. This machine treats blocked nose by converting the water to moisture. This fills up the room and significantly increases the humidity of the room. Therefore, when you breathe, the humid air soothes the inflamed blood vessels in the nose and helps you to breathe properly.
  2. Take a hot shower: When you find it difficult to breathe, a quick hot shower can go a long way in curing the discomfort. The logic that operates is the steam generated from the hot shower thins the mucus and also considerably reduces the inflammation in the nose, allowing you to breathe normally.
  3. Drink lots of water: Though the suggestion may seem incredible, drinking water actually helps in unblocking that blocked nose. When you drink a lot of water, the mucus in the nostrils is thinned, at the same time it pushes back the accumulated fluids, thereby curbing the condition of blocked nose.
  4. Using a saline spray: This is one of the most ancient and trusted ways of treating blocked nose. By administering a saline or a nasal spray, the moisture in your nostrils increases and radically diminishes the inflammation.
  5. Use warm compresses: Using a warm compress has been the most reliable form of medication in times of high temperature and also at times of blocked nose. The compress that was dipped in hot water, when placed on the nose and forehead helps to unblock the nasal passages. The soothing effect of the warm compresses reduces the inflammation and facilitates the process of breathing.
