Hello, I am married few months ago. I and my husband stayed in 2 different countries after marriage, so there was no physical relationship. Now we are together and I am not ready for kids now as I want to spend some time with him, where as my husband is against using any precautions. And he has an opinion of following the natural process. I do not want more time but, to spend at least 3-4 months before planning for a baby. Please suggest the precautions I can take!

Dear , you are already 26. I suggest you to start the process of conception. That is because of the cumbersome problems associated with life. I don't know your husband's age. Must be atleast 30. For him, this is the ideal time to have a kid. Otherwise in old age, you will be in trouble. As well as you may not provide the child with good education and career. Talk to your husband regarding this. It is a myth that you cannot enjoy life with your husband after having child. Life becomes more beautiful for you and your husband after the child is born. Please keep away from myths and from people who advise you without knowing your family situation. I need to talk toyou more on this regard. If you are interested, please book an online counseling session. Take care.

Menstrual problems and their impact on female health

Good evening my name is Dr. Rahul Manchanda and I'm a gynecologist obstetrician. I do specialize in gynecological endoscopy which is a subspecialty of obstetrics and gynecology in which we look at women's diseases through small cuts. We treat them and manage them. Women's diseases that we look through this method or anything from people who can't conceive who have difficulty in conceiving to menstrual problems pain during the periods right up to cancer and women as we know are the pivot of society and the family in general and they need to look after their health. Whether you have heavy periods or you have pain during your periods. That isn't really normal. You must visit a gynecologist and make sure that there is nothing a problem there.

If you need to consult me I am available on the Lybrate website these gynecological endoscopic procedures are less painful you don't need to stay in the hospital for very long. The bleeding is minimal and of course, Kostas comes down because the medicines required much less. Besides the patient going home soon so you can diagnose most problems with this and treat them also the most common killer in our society for women are cervical cancers utrine cancer and these can be diagnosed and should be diagnosed through these procedures. A minimally invasive technique which is hysteroscopy or laparoscopy helps us diagnose them and treat them so the long periods of staying in hospitalslarge unsightly cutss the huge amount of pain that one has during surgery and after is much less and they don't have to suffer the agony of going through it.

Please look after your health. Please visit your gynecologist so that you can treat these problems and manage them and be healthy as a normal person. Thank you.

Mongolian spots are just hyperpigmented spots in newborns which may persist as birth marks. Isolated spots are not hereditary, nor related to any pregnancy disorder. Since you are unable to conceive for last 5 years, it is time you went for HSG test together with semen test of your partner.

Remember two facts 1)Travelling does not cause any problem 2) Sudden problem can occur to anyone in her bed or during travelling. So only difference is if you are at home you can reach to doctor faster and if sudden problem occurs during travelling it takes time for you to reach doctor. So just be positive and travel.

Yes 100 stairs everyday is tough with growing pregnancy, you take a call depending on quality of your pregnancy, you may climb slow with a pause for few minutes on every floor. You may use it as a part of light exercise. Take leave if you feel pain in abdomen and any other symptoms. Regular checkup with gynaec is the rule.

My last period is 19th januvary now26th my periods1st day then wat is the my safety period?

Homeopath, Kurnool
The 8th to 21st day of the menstrual cycle counting from first day is considered as fertile period or the UNSAFE period. Days other than this are considered SAFE, that is, the 1st-7th day of the cycle and then again from the 22nd to the 28th day. But this may not exactly be correct for all women though. It depends on the length of their menstrual cycle . This calculation only holds good if the woman has a exact 28 day cycle or maybe slightly lesser than that. If the cycle is longer than that, it isn?t reliable.

All About Breast Cancer

Breast cancer is a type of cancer, which occurs due to the development of cancerous cells in breasts. Women are usually affected by breast cancer and breast cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer after skin cancer. Usually fatal if not diagnosed in its early stage, breast cancer is a very serious medical ailment. Read on more to find all about the different symptoms, causes, preventive measures and treatment of breast cancer.

Symptoms: Breast cancer has few distinct characteristics and if you have a few or all the following symptoms you could be more likely to suffer from breast cancer. 

  • The formation of a lump in your breast, which is different from the surrounding tissue and usually more thickened.
  • The discharge of bloody fluid  material from the nipples.
  • Sudden change of the size, shape and appearance of the breast.
  • Certain distinct changes to the skin over the breast for example an indentation in the skin similar to that of a dimple.
  • Appearance of an extra nipple which is inverted.
  • If the darkened area around the nipples known as the areola is flaking or peeling off. 

Causes: Studies and researches remain inconclusive on what causes breast cancer. Breast cancer occurs due to abnormal division of the cells located in the breast, which over time accumulate and form lumps. They
might spread to other parts of the body. Breast cancer is caused mainly due to a complex interaction of personal genetics, environment and lifestyle choices. Breast cancer can also be caused due to genetics as about 5% to 10% of cases are due to gene mutations which pass onto generations.

Risk factors: There are certain factors, which increase the probability of contracting breast cancer. Increasing age, personal and family history of breast cancer, obesity, radiation exposure, pregnancy at an older age, postmenopausal hormone therapy are some of the factors that increase the chances of breast cancer.

Treatment: Several forms of surgical methods exist to treat breast cancer. Depending on the condition and spread of the disease a suitable surgery is performed. These include mastectomy, lumpectomy, axillary lymph node dissection and removal of both breasts. Other forms of treatment include chemotherapy or the use of high doses of drugs to destroy cancerous cells. Radiation therapy where X-rays are used to destroy the cancer cells is also effective.

Having anal or vaginal sex with someone who has HIV without using a condom or taking medicines to prevent or treat HIV. •Anal sex is the highest-risk sexual behavior. For the HIV-negative partner, receptive anal sex (“bottoming”) is riskier than insertive anal sex (“topping”). •Vaginal sex is the second highest-risk sexual behavior.

Importance of Sunscreen

MBBS, MD - Dermatology , Venereology & Leprosy

Importance of Sunscreen

Sunscreen is the real fountain of youth. Get into the habit of applying sunscreen or a lotion with minimum spf 15 to 30 protection daily. Remember that the sun's rays can still be damaging in winter months as it reflects off snow.
