Oligomenorrhea is the term for by light or infrequent menstrual periods. It occurs in women of childbearing age. Some variation in menstruation is normal. A woman who regularly goes more than 35 days without menstruating may be diagnosed with oligomenorrhea. For the most part, a missed menstrual cycle or light flow does not pose a problem. However, sometimes it can point to polycystic ovary syndrome (pcos). This condition occurs as the result of a hormonal imbalance. Cysts develop on the ovaries and can affect menstrual cycles. Oligomenorrhea can occur in women who have diabetes or thyroid problems. It is also common in women with high levels of a protein called prolactin in their blood. Medications such as anti-psychotics and anti-epileptics also can decrease menstruation. See your doctor if you go more than 35 days without a period and are not on birth control medication. If your cycle suddenly changes, always contact your gynecologist.

I am pregnant of 37 week 4 day's as on 12-Dec-2017. My earlier ultrasound reports are showing my due date as 27th of December 2017. But in the last ultrasound report my due date is postpone to 6th of January 2018. And also my estimated Fetal weight showing 2.6 kg where as I am expecting more than 3 kg. Before pregnancy my weight was 50 kg and now 55.5 kg. Is it normal or I have to do something extra to put on some more weight for good health for my coming baby.

There is a disparity of 10 days between the two ultrasound .nothing to worry much ,disparity < 2 weeks is normal. Fetal wt is also normal you should take a protein rich diet ,beetroot juice to increase fetal weight.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Soft vagina is a blessing in many ways because it is elastic and can accommodate even large penis. I suggest never to indulge in continuous sex more than twice. Breast size depends on many factors and your age. Penis size cannot be increased. Therefore be happy with what you have. Take care.

Dear lybrateuser, -not having sex doesn't directly affect a persons health, though having sex regularly is believed to improve mood, better circulation & cardiovascular health, improves immunity, reduces stress, help one sleep better -hair fall could be due to anemia, thyroid disorder (for which you require to do blood investigations), other reasons could be due to stress, seborrheic dermatitis, brushing too much -take well balanced diet with more of fruits & green leafy vegetables, protein & calcium rich food, have a handful of mixed dry fruits daily, do regular exercise, walking, jogging, yoga daily for 15-20 min -consult dermatologist to know exact cause & treatment.
