Hi, I got married 10 months back. I was 5 months pregnant but I got abortion last week due to cervix incompetence. I got normal delivery pains and got abortion with a boy with gastroschisis. But from 2 days I am getting light white liquid from my right breast. It is not much but very light. What is it and why is that liquid coming?

Milk can come after abortion, do not press again and again to check. Meet your doctor and take medicine for lactation suppression.

Facts Every Woman Should Know About Heart Disease

Facts Every Woman Should Know About Heart Disease

Heart disease doesn't affect all women in the same way and neither does it have the same warning signs as heart diseases in men. For women, heart disease is a bigger threat than breast cancer. Cardiovascular diseases also kill more women than men as the disease progresses differently in men and women. Here are a few things you should know about heart diseases.

Women have more atypical symptoms of heart attacks: The classic symptoms of heart attacks are pain in the left arm, chest pain and heart palpitations. Though women may exhibit these symptoms, they are more likely to have atypical symptoms. These include nausea, stomach aches, pain in the shoulders and upper back and extreme fatigue.

Preeclampsia and gestational diabetes can increase risks of heart disease: Even though your blood pressure may go back to normal and conditions like preeclampsia or gestational diabetes may go away post pregnancy, their effects linger on. The risk of heart disease for a woman who suffered from preeclampsia doubles while gestational diabetes can cause glucose intolerance leading to obesity or other such conditions which are risk factors for heart diseases.

Hot flashes could be a sign of heart problems: Hot flashes are usually associated with menopause but may also be a symptom of underlying heart problems. Hot flashes that occur after a exerting a strenuous effort on something can be a sign of angina in women.

Men and women do not face equal risks: Traditional risks to heart diseases such as cholesterol, obesity and high blood pressure affect both men and women but some factors such as diabetes, stress, depression and smoking affect women more than they affect men. Since women tend to lead a more sedentary lifestyle than men, a lack of exercise also affects them more than it affects men. In addition, a low level of estrogen can also increase the risk of cardiovascular conditions. This is usually seen after menopause.

Metabolic syndrome increase your risk of getting a stroke:

There are five metabolic risk factors for heart disease. If you have 3 or more of them, it is termed as metabolic syndrome. These risk factors are:

  1. A waist circumference of more than 35". This is also called abdominal obesity
  2. A triglyceride level higher than 150 mg/dL
  3. A low level of good cholesterol i.e. HDL cholesterol that is less than 50mg/dL
  4. High blood pressure
  5. High blood sugar. This could also be a sign of diabetes.

While some factors like genetics are out of our control, most of these factors can be controlled by conscious lifestyle changes. Your doctor may also prescribe medication for the same. Heart disease can occur at any time so do not take your heart for granted.

Hi, I am 24 years married having pcos. Having regular periods. I had undergone various harmone tests and reported with elevated prolactin harmone. I want to conceive in next 2-3 months. Can you suggest me some measures so that I can conceive naturally

DGO, MD, MRCOG, CCST, Accredation in Colposcopy

You need to take medications to reduce your prolactin levels and start taking folic acid tablets. If you have regular 28-30 days cycles then having sex at midcycle gives you the best chance of getting pregnant.

I had gone through pap smear test. Though the report came negative for intraepithelial lesion or malignancy. But doctor gave a clinical note of cervical erosion present on both lips, bleed in touch. I showed the report to my family gynaecologist. She advised to go for HPV DNA and coloscopy. I am very worried. Why these tests have been recommended to me. Is it very serious.

Since your doctor has detected ulcers on mouth of uterus, there can be a posibilty of human papilloma virus (hpv dna) infection / any other finding. Pap test report can be vague also which can miss lots. Go for colposcopy as suggested. May be doctor will do the procedure of cauterisation in the same sitting- burning of the ulcers. Do get an ultrasound abdomen test & blood test for hiv.

It's not a problem. Dont worry. You need treatment. Do a USG of pelvic part and see size and count. Then try APIS M 30 twice daily for 1 month and again do USG see the result. If not reduced then contact me.

I want to take medicine to dry the breast milk. Dr. suggests cbline. Now should I release some milk if breast get engorge? If yes how much and how many times a day. And if I lead to non release then does it have chances of mastitis?

FMAS, MS
General Surgeon, Gandhinagar
Respected lybrate-user hi yes you can take medicine surely. It's advisable to release the milk by circumferential gentle compression of breast area 3-4 inches surrounding areola 3-4 times a day with each session of around 4-5 minutes. If you do this if you have no pain in doing that it's better otherwise don't worry of getting future mastitis by not releasing milk. Thanks regards I hope you got your answers still some query you r welcome at anytime dear.

Hello, menopause is defined as when you are amenorrhoeic for at least 1 year. This is not menopause and the delay or missed menses in absence of pregnancy can be due to stress induced hormonal imbalance per se during the cycle. Wait for 2 weeks else you may opt for a progesterone withdrawal.

First of all don't drop your first pregnancy. There may be chances that you may not get pregnancy next time. And it will go with tab. But chances of incomplete abortion are there.

Home Remedies for Joint Pain

Master in Psychology, MD - Ayurveda, Dems, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda,
Home Remedies for Joint Pain
1. Massage
Massage therapy helps relieve joint pain by improving circulation and soothing inflammation. In fact, several studies indicate that regular massage can improve pain, stiffness and range of motion in the affected joint.
To massage the affected area, use warm oil like coconut, olive, mustard, castor or garlic oil and apply gentle pressure while massaging.

2. Hot and cold compresses
Alternating hot and cold compresses can also help ease joint pain. Heat therapy helps decrease pain, increase blood flow and relax sore muscles and joints. Cold therapy reduces inflammation and numbs the areas around the affected joint.
- Wrap both compresses in separate towels before using them. They should not be applied directly to the skin.
- Place the hot compress on the affected area for about three minutes.
- Remove the compress and immediately put a cold compress in its place for about one minute.
- Repeat the process for 15 to 20 minutes a few times daily until you get relief

How can gestational hypertension affect your health and baby's?

MBBS
General Physician, Hyderabad
How can gestational hypertension affect your health and baby's?
It depends on how far along you are in pregnancy when you develop gestational hypertension and how high your blood pressure gets. The more severe your hypertension and the earlier in pregnancy it appears, the greater your risk for problems.

The good news is that most women who get gestational hypertension have only a mild form of the condition and don't develop it until near term (37 weeks or later). If you're in this category, you still have a somewhat higher risk of being induced or having a c-section, but other than that, you and your baby are likely to do as well as you would if you had normal blood pressure.

However, about 1 in 4 women with gestational hypertension go on to develop preeclampsia during pregnancy or labor, or soon after giving birth. And you have a 50 percent chance of getting preeclampsia if you develop gestational hypertension before 30 weeks.

Having gestational hypertension also puts you at increased risk for a number of other pregnancy complications, including intrauterine growth restriction, preterm birth, placental abruption, and stillbirth. Because of these risks, your caregiver will monitor you and your baby carefully.

Pregnancy is a moment of joy that gives a woman the feeling of completeness from womanhood to motherhood. But this time, to-be mothers have mixed feeling: a feeling of pleasure and at the same time the feeling of high uncertainty. You must not be scared but enjoy this time and take good care. Many times during your pregnancy you may feel nauseating, bloated or feel palpitations, leg cramps, back pain, constipation, heart burn, slight pain in abdomen etc. Those are relatively regular features. But if these conditions tend to bother you seriously, contact your doctor immediately. Please don't try self-medication in pregnancy as it can harm your baby. Some common complications you may face are: \ Vaginal spotting or bleeding can be a sign. You need to get the ultrasound and clinical checkup done by a qualified doctor. Don't ignore even small amount of bleeding. If it doesn't stop, it could lead to miscarriage. \ A baby needs a term of 37 weeks for a healthy birth. However, if you feel contractions any time earlier than that, it could be signs of a premature baby, which usually is not very healthy. \ A usual case of high bp is fine, but a severe case of high bp and protein in your urine esp. When you are near your due date, can be another complication and also a reason for opting a c-section. \ Another problem is gestational diabetes, which must be addressed immediately. \ Many problems occur due of certain deficiencies of your body but it is advisable to be in constant touch with your obstetrician and take good care of your diet and a regular exercise.
