Unwanted 72 is a hormonal tab, can lead to nausea and vomiting. You can give her anti emetic if required. Wait for 1-2 days, she will get better.

If you r married since more than a year with regular sex (3-4 times a week) that is the time you should seek medical help. There r 2 basic tests which r needed in such case. Semen analysis (15 million/ml is normal count) and hsg to find out about the fallopian tube potency. If both r normal which is usually the case next treatment is with climiphene citrate for 5 days with follicular monitoring. If you want to delay the treatment then you can try calender method: If a women’s menstrual cycle varies from 26days to 31days cycle, The shortest cycle (26days) minus18days=8th day. The longest cycle (31days) minus 10days=21st day Thus, 8th to 21st day of each cycle counting from first day of menstrual period is considered as fertile period.

We are married for 7 years and awaiting for a baby, have tried 6 times iui but still she is not pregnant, my count is 30 million, can we try iui for few more months or ivf, please suggest.

30 million is enough. Don't bother about it. If all your and your wife's reports are normal, then we call it unexplained infertility, where there is very good chance of result. It is mainly because of chance factor, you are getting pregnancy. Now, iui has success rate 25% per cycle. So, 6 iui is enough. As you have not conceived by iui, I would suggest you to go straightaway for ivf (success rate 30-50% per cycle). If the financial constraint is there, I would suggest, get prepared for ivf. In the mean time, you can try further iui but remember, in your case further iui is unlikely to succeed.

In pcos its the common problem that the follicle does not grow. That is called as anovulation. By the way pcos is not a disease and a change in the body. So there is no question in saying that it is cured. U are unmarried and do not need any treatment at present. You can take treatment once you get married. All that has happened is because of you loosing weight.

I have serious allergy problem near vaginal area mostly after period or razor apply hair growth on vagina. Den skin on that area looks like burn n black.

Please specify whether it is pigmentation, itching, dark spot, raised, inflamed, redness, or skin shedding or you have noticed recently the dark skin? one of the most common causes of pigmentation or dark patches on the skin around the buttocks and inner thighs is chafing. The constant friction of the skin can cause the skin to darken. People who are overweight, especially around the thighs and buttocks, often face this problem. Sudden weight gain can also lead to stretch marks that occur due to a breakdown of the skin layers. Stretch marks can lead to purplish discoloration in certain areas of the skin. Another possible cause of dark patches may be intake of birth control pills. Skin pigmentation is a common side effect of these pills. Dark areas may sometimes develop due to a skin condition known as acanthosis nigricans. Here pigmented areas occur especially in the skin folds. Women with polycystic ovary syndrome may also be prone to developing pigmented patches on the body. To prevent further pigmentation, wear loose clothes that do not irritate the skin. You may also apply talcum powder on the affected skin after a shower to prevent chafing. Keep your skin healthy by regulating your diet. Avoid consuming lots of oily foods and incorporate more fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet. Drinking a sufficient quantity of water is also a good way to flush out toxins and keep the skin hydrated and healthy. Just apply lemon drops mixed with olive oil with a cotton swab on the marks. Apply the above mixture on the dark area around the vagina too. Leave it for 2-5 hours and wash off with running water and glycerin soap. Apply a homeopathic lotion containing berberis aquifolium and aloe vera extract. Apply on the marks on buttocks and also on and inside the vaginal cavity.

Elderberry

Elderberry

In the case of any infection, herbs and remedies that boost the immune system are especially valuable. In the treatment of lyme disease, many people turn to elderberry, which has certain immuno-modulating effects, making it more adaptive and responsive to the changing nature of a lyme disease infection. This can increase the levels of white blood cells in the body, which are the first line of defense against any infection, and can greatly speed the recovery process. Elderberry is not the easiest herb to find, but its benefits for someone suffering from lyme disease make it well worth the effort!

Menses can get delayed after ipill. If you tested pregnancy negative after 18-21 days of sex then you can't be pregnant. There is still time for 18 days after sex. As you took ipill you r 95% protected from getting pregnant.

My wife period start on 20 and ends on 21 of the month which is the day to have unprotected sex and not a chance of pregnancy.

This method is called safe period method which practically is unsafe if couple wants to avoid pregnancy for sure. Pregnancy can occur around ovulation day so depending on interval between two periods calculations can be done, I am not sure from your question what is interval between cycles. If it is 30 days then days 1 to 12 and 19-30 are considered as safe.

Baby is 8 mnths, I've started working past couple of weeks. Baby was exclusively on breast feeding for 6 months, now started with formula milk n rice with vegs smashed. Passes morning stools normal but sometimes in the day when I'm away at work passes loose stools is greenish in color, is it normal? Kindly help because I've been pressurised at home to stop breast feeding him. I want to continue feeding till he is 2 yrs.

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
I congratulate you for determination to feed your child on breast for 2 years. Yes you are cent percent right. So long as child is active, playful, passing frequent water like urine(not dark), and putting on weight, there is no reason to worry. Colour and consistency of stools can vary during early weaning period.

Need some diet plan for PCOS & also want to know how to cure PCOS problem in women? Please advise.

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
Keep your weight in check. Obesity makes insulin resistance worse. Weight loss can reduce both insulin and androgen levels and may restore ovulation. No single specific dietary approach is best, but losing weight by reducing how many calories you consume each day may help with polycystic ovary syndrome, especially if you're overweight or obese. Use smaller plates, reduce portion sizes and resist the urge for seconds to help with weight loss. Ask your doctor to recommend a weight-control program, and meet regularly with a dietitian for help in reaching weight-loss goals. Consider dietary changes. Low-fat, high-carbohydrate diets may increase insulin levels, so you may want to consider a low-carbohydrate diet if you have PCOS — and if your doctor recommends it. Don't severely restrict carbohydrates; instead, choose complex carbohydrates, which are high in fiber. The more fiber in a food, the more slowly it's digested and the more slowly your blood sugar levels rise. High-fiber carbohydrates include whole-grain breads and cereals, whole-wheat pasta, bulgur wheat, barley, brown rice, and beans. Limit less healthy, simple carbohydrates such as soda, excess fruit juice, cake, candy, ice cream, pies, cookies and doughnuts. Be active. Exercise helps lower blood sugar levels. If you have PCOS, increasing your daily activity and participating in a regular exercise program may treat or even prevent insulin resistance and help you keep your weight under control. Polycystic ovary syndrome treatment generally focuses on management of your individual main concerns, such as infertility, hirsutism, acne or obesity.Regulate your menstrual cycle. To regulate your menstrual cycle, your doctor may recommend combination birth control pills — pills that contain both estrogen and progestin. These birth control pills decrease androgen production and give your body a break from the effects of continuous estrogen, lowering your risk of endometrial cancer and correcting abnormal bleeding. As an alternative to birth control pills, you might use a skin patch or vaginal ring that contains a combination of estrogen and progestin. During the time that you take this medication to relieve your symptoms, you won't be able to conceive. If you're not a good candidate for combination birth control pills, an alternative approach is to take progesterone for 10 to 14 days every one to two months. This type of progesterone therapy regulates your periods and offers protection against endometrial cancer, but it doesn't improve androgen levels and it won't prevent pregnancy. The progestin-only minipill or progestin-containing intrauterine device are better choices if you also wish to avoid pregnancy. Your doctor also may prescribe metformin (Glucophage, Fortamet, others), an oral medication for type 2 diabetes that improves insulin resistance and lowers insulin levels. This drug may help with ovulation and lead to regular menstrual cycles. Metformin also slows the progression to type 2 diabetes if you already have prediabetes and aids in weight loss if you also follow a diet and an exercise program. Help you ovulate. If you're trying to become pregnant, you may need a medication to help you ovulate. Clomiphene (Clomid, Serophene) is an oral anti-estrogen medication that you take in the first part of your menstrual cycle. If clomiphene alone isn't effective, your doctor may add metformin to help induce ovulation. If you don't become pregnant using clomiphene and metformin, your doctor may recommend using gonadotropins — follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH) medications that are administered by injection. Another medication that your doctor may have you try is letrozole (Femara). Doctors don't know exactly how letrozole works to stimulate the ovaries, but it may help with ovulation when other medications fail. When taking any type of medication to help you ovulate, it's important that you work with a reproductive specialist and have regular ultrasounds to monitor your progress and avoid problems.

Do some basic tests like hormonal tests for you to see the ovarian reserve and normal levels, tubal patency test, an a routine usg to rule out any pelvic structural problems. Your husband should have a semen analysis done. Subject to the reports you can try iui for some cycles or try ivf if the ovarian reserve is less.

If a male put his sexual part in female's vagina Then the sexual part can go inside without condom? If I use a lubricant (cream, gel etc) in place of condom then is it good? Does male's part get any harm or pain?

Hello- If you are a first timer then its better to use condom. Due to its slippery surface, its better to use a lubricant while condom on. It will make things easier for you. Condom can make your stay on bed longer. Condom can protect your from any kind of STd or unplanned pregnancy risk. However you can also insert your penis without condom, it will cause no harm or pain on your behalf if your partner is infection free.

3 Common Eating Disorders that People Develop Unknowingly!

MD, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
3 Common Eating Disorders that People Develop Unknowingly!

Eating disorders can be defined as conditions that influence your eating behaviour significantly and which may give rise to serious health issues. Eating disorders are associated with behaviours like compulsively counting calories, puking after meals, living on a rigid diet etc. which often leads to a feeling of self-loathing and obsessive thoughts about food and weight.

Here are the three most common eating disorders and the symptoms by which they can be identified.

1. Anorexia nervosa - This disorder is considered to be a mortally dangerous condition in which the body weight reduces drastically. An individual is terrified about gaining weight and can take extreme steps to maintain their weight and shape, often leading to starvation, vomiting and many other health problems.

Common symptoms include:

-Reducing the amount of food to be consumed to cut down the calories
-Exercising beyond capacity to burn calories
-Recurrently monitoring your shape, weight and appearance
-Skipping meals
-Avoiding social gatherings where you will be offered food
-Irregular menstrual cycles in women
-Erectile dysfunction in men

2. Bulimia nervosa - Mostly observed among people in their mid-teens, Bulimia nervosa is a serious type of eating disorder associated with episodes of bingeing and purging with the individual being unable to regulate their eating habits. Moreover, the person suffering from this disease often feels guilty and horror-struck about weight gain and forces himself/herself to vomit.

Normally, people suffering from this condition exhibit the following habits:

-Binge eating
-Use of laxatives or throw up forcibly to get rid of calories
-Feeling exhausted and guilty
-Experiencing irregularity in their menstrual cycles
-The inability to maintain normal weight, in spite of trying to eliminate calories

3. Binge-eating disorder - This disorder is characterised by overeating, eating even when you don't feel hungry and continuing to eat even after feeling full. People suffering from this disorder cultivate a feeling of guilt inside them for overeating but do not try to nullify its effect by vomiting or exercising intensely. Some of the most prominent symptoms of this disorder include:

-Eating alone to hide the embarrassment caused due to overeating
-Eating quicker than normal people
-Being overweight
-Binge eating at minimum one instance every week
