If you have PCOS you need to be on medicines to help regularise your periods for a long time. Most important thing is to reduce weight if you are overweight as the hormonal imbalance associated with obesity is optimised to help with regular cycles

Why am I feeling bowels after eating anything? Is this the reaction of an i-pill? It has been a week since I have taken an i-pill. Sometimes I feel ok and sometimes feels like shit. Whats the matter?

MD - Homeopathy, BHMS

Hi lybrate-user. Yes it can be an effect of IPILL. And there are many other side effects. So better avoid taking such pills next time and use condoms. It is better and safe.

Hello, You are normal and there is no reason to be worried about it. It so happens as, the seminal vesicle, producing seminal fluid ,situated at the top of the prostate gland lies right against the wall of the Anal cavity. Though the pressure against the prostate could have ejected semen through urethra during passing hard stool with slight straining pressure. Tk, plenty of water to soften faces to ease pressure on seminal vesicles. Go for meditation to reduce stress. Tk homoeopathic medicine:@.Lycopodium 30-6 pills, thrice. Avoid, junk food, alcohol, nicotine, please. Tk care.

It's very normal. It's by nature only you won't be able to alter this habit of going to toilet twice. For acidity, avoid excessive tea, coffee. Take food low in oil and spices. If acidity continues take tablet pantop40 once daily empty stomach in morning.

Follow the following tips:- · Pay attention to your health and food intake. · To increase your appetite, have a glass of lime water or 1 cardamom (elaichi) before your meal.  · Have minimum 4 meals in a day. · Drink 1 glass of milk twice a day. · Try to enjoy your meals and gradually increase the quantity you eat every time. · A balance diet should have all essential nutrients in it. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It should include combination of Both Carbohydrates and Proteins for e.g. Oats with Milk or Poha/ Upma with a glass of milk. If you do not like milk have 1-2 egg whites in the morning along with your breakfast. · You need to focus on your protein intake : Increase your protein intake e.g. milk, dairy products- cheese, paneer, lentils (dals), nuts ( soya, peanuts, dry fruits ), pulses e.g. rajma, chole, kidney beans etc. sprouts. If you are a non-vegetarian, then you can have proteins by also eating eggs, chicken, fish. Make sure you are including at least 2 serving of any of these in your daily meal. · Lunch and dinner again should be a combination of Proteins, Carbohydrates and Fats which could have dal, roti, sabji/chicken, salad.  · Please do have minimum 4 almonds or a small bowl of peanuts every day. · Please ensure that you drink at least 3 litres of water every day.

Its due to vigorous contraction of your lower abdomen and thigh muscles. its due to the new exercise you have started. this shows that the muscles are contracting and getting toned up. if it is very recent practice of yoga, go slow and allow the muscles to relax and do them in relaxed way so that the muscles have time to get aclimatised. thats the only problem and continue to practice the yoga and over a period of time this will disappear. if you feel like you can give massage to the area for fast relief. good luck

Know More About Fatty Liver!

MBBS, MD - General Medicine, DM - Gastroenterology, MNAMS

Know More About Fatty Liver!

Fatty liver is a condition where excess fat is deposited on this organ. Also called as steatosis, this condition happens when more than 5- 10 percent of the weight of the liver is made up of fat.

Fatty liver is a common condition among people. A study from coastal regions of India found ~ 25% of healthy persons had patients had fatty liver on ultrasound.

It can occur at all ages including childhood, highest prevalence is in 40–50 year age group. Prevalence more in patient who are obese and in diabetic patients.

Types of Fatty Liver

1 Alcoholic fatty liver: This condition occurs when there is a heavy consumption of alcohol. Gastroenterologists recommend abstention from alcohol for this condition to subside. If the patient continues to consume alcohol, then liver cirrhosis may develop.

2 Non alcoholic fatty liver (NAFL): One may develop a fatty liver even if one is not an alcoholic. The liver in some cases is unable to process the fat in cells causing them to build-up on the organ.

When more than 10% of the liver is made of fat then this condition is called Non Alcoholic Fatty Liver (NAFL).

Non alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH): When fatty liver is associated with inflammation in liver patient is said to be having Non alcoholic steatohepatitis. NASH is a more advanced stage of NAFLD, and has a higher risk of progressing to liver cirrhosis or hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). These condition display symptoms like jaundice, vomiting, nausea, loss of appetite and abdominal pain. Blood test (LFT) shows raised enzymes level. Approx 5-8% of the Indian population has NASH. Consult a doctor if you are experiencing any of these symptoms.

3 Fatty liver during pregnancy: Occurring mainly in the third trimester, the symptoms of this condition are vomiting, nausea, pain the right part of the abdomen and jaundice.

Symptoms

During the early stages (fatty liver) of the disease, patients usually have no symptoms directly related to liver disease. However, people may experience a vague abdominal discomfort. If their liver is inflamed (NASH) then they may display symptoms of poor appetite, weight loss, pain in the abdomen and disorientation.

What causes fatty liver?

The most common cause of fatty liver is alcoholism. When the human liver is unable to metabolize fat fast enough or when there is an excess accumulation of fat on the liver cells then the liver becomes fatty. However, intake of high-fat foods may not result in a fatty liver.

Predisposing factor:

1 Diabetes mellitus

2 Obesity or being overweight

3 Hyperlipidemia or the condition where there are high levels of fat in the blood

4 Genetic reasons

5 Rapid loss of weight

6 Drugs: Aspirin, steroids, tamoxifen, tetracycline etc. cause side effects which also leads to fatty liver

7 Nutritional status (eg, overnutrition, severe malnutrition, total parenteral nutrition [TPN], or starvation diet)

8 Other health problems (eg, Hepatitis C infection, celiac sprue and Wilson disease) 

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gastroenterologist.
