Is it normoz? if it is, it is only a multivitamin and minerals for women. For pcod as such, depending on your symptoms you will require medication. Otherwise diet and weight reduction is the only way to control it. It is very common nowadays.

Soft drinks, cordials and fruit juices should be consumed in a limited quantity

Soft drinks, cordials and fruit juices should be consumed in a limited quantity
Soft drinks, cordials and fruit juices should be consumed in a limited quantity because they are acidic in nature. Acidic food or drinks often soften the tooth material which leads to the dissolution of minerals into the tooth enamel, resulting in cavities (holes).

Trichomoniasis - Treatment Options and Prevention

MBBS, DGO, DNB

Trichomoniasis - Treatment Options and Prevention

Trichomoniasis is one of the most commonly occurring sexually transmitted infections. It generally happens on account of having multiple sexual partners or not using condoms and other protective measures during sexual intercourse (vaginal or anal).

Trichomoniasis leads to a foul smelling vaginal discharge and other symptoms that include spotting/bleeding, painful urination, itching in the vaginal region, all of them resulting in painful sexual intercourse. The single- celled protozoa (pathogen) causing this infection is Trichomonas vaginalis.

Symptoms-

The most common symptoms among women are:

  1. vaginal discharge, which can be white, gray, yellow, or green, and usually frothy with an unpleasant smell
  2. vaginal spotting or bleeding
  3. genital burning or itching
  4. genital redness or swelling
  5. frequent urge to urinate
  6. pain during urination or sexual intercourse

The most common symptoms in men are:

  1. discharge from the urethra
  2. burning during urination or after ejaculation
  3. an urge to urinate frequently

Treatment Options for Trichomoniasis-

The treatment options for Trichomoniasis can be categorized as follows:

  1. Antibiotics such as ‘Tinidazole’ or metronidazole can be administered.

  2. It is advisable not to consume alcohol within the first 24 hours of being administered ‘metronidazole’ and the first 72 hours of being administered tinidazole as it can lead to severe vomiting and nausea.

  3. Metronidazole is strictly advised against during pregnancy as it can harm the baby.

How to Prevent Trichomoniasis?

The preventive measures include:

  1. Indulging in safe sex is the best way to prevent Trichomoniasis.

  2. Condoms should be used by both the male and the female partners during a sexual intercourse (anal or vaginal).

  3. Sharing sex toys is another big ‘NO’ as the carriers of various STDs may spread through their common usage.

  4. If a person has already been infected by Trichomoniasis then abstaining from sex is the safest option to prevent it from spreading. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.

Hi. My name is chaitu iam 25yrs old. Last year I got married. Since from four months I and my partner are trying for a baby. But the result is negative. I have a polycystic ovary syndrome. I consulted doctor about this. They suggested ayurvedic medicine. But no use. The most important thing is I have never missed my periods. I always have regular periods of 28days cycle. Can you please help me?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist,
You try for pregnancy in middle of the cycle I. E. From 8th to18 th day of cycle, this is your fertile period and so many other tests. Give yourself some more time of say 8months. Even then if you are not able to conceive, then go to a gynaecologist.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Now there is no risk of getting pregnant. As a precautionary measure, include papaya and pine apple in your diet for 15 days. Take care.

It is difficult to predict chances of pregnancy without knowing the date of last periods. However, pregnancy cannot occur just with foreplay, it needs penetration and ejaculation of semen within female vagina. The delay in periods may be due to sm hormonal problem.

Health benefits of Tapioca (Sabudana)

Sabudana, or tapioca, is a favourite breakfast and evening snack option in indian households. Sabudana khichdi, sabudana pakoda or sabudana kheer are served at indian dinner tables quite often. Apart from food, it is also commonly used to starch clothes. Here, we tell you about the other health benefits this food has to offer:

1. Tapioca is a good source of protein, which helps with muscle building, healing and strengthening. So vegetarians, turn to sabudana for your daily protein intake.

2. Tapioca is rich in iron and calcium, which helps maintain bone health. You can prevent osteoporosis and other bone conditions by adding a regular dose of tapioca to your diet.

3. You can eat a bowl of soaked sabudana with a dash of chilli powder, salt and crushed peanuts to fight fatigue after a hectic day. Loaded with carbohydrates, tapioca will make you feel energetic in a matter of minutes.

4. Regular consumption of sabudana keeps blood pressure levels under control. Also, the potassium present in it aids healthy blood flow and lowers the pressure on the cardiovascular system.

5. Sabudana is a healthy weight gain food. So if you're skinny and wish to gain weight naturally, add tapioca to your diet.

6. Rich in folic acid and vitamin b, tapioca helps prevent foetal birth defects and improves the development of your unborn baby. 

7. Tapioca prevents gas, indigestion and constipation problems and is good for your metabolism and digestive system.

Hi, my wife is 32 years and we are happily married for 4 years now. We have a 3.6 years old kid. My wife is tested positive for next pregnancy, according to scanning report she is 9 weeks now. With deep regret we would like to discontinue second child for another 2 years. Our regular doctor has recommended surgical removal. Bus, we are little skeptical. Is this the only option or can the pregnancy be terminated using the medication. Just need a second opinion on this at the earliest.

Make up your mind again about termination of pregnancy the kit for abortion tablets costs 600/- six hundred only, pack of 5 tablets has instructions for taking the dose bleeding starts from day 1 or day 2 to last for 10 days with slight pain in lower abdomen if pain doesn't stop after ten days, do visit your doctor because retained tiny pieces can't be seen on ultrasound and a opd procedure of Menstrual regulation will be done using a special syringe that sucks out pieces in one minute due to pressure generated in syringe good luck.
