What is the problem of irregular bleeding above 35 years women. What are the precautions.

BHMS, MD - Alternate Medicine
Homeopath, Nagpur
What is the problem of irregular bleeding above 35 years women. What are the precautions.
In majority of the cases irregular menses are accredited to hormonal imbalance, but in some cases it may be pathological and secondary to some pathology of ovaries mostly. Now if you want to regularized the menses then you must establish permanent balanced first and this can be achieved only with homoeopathy, because in modern medicine we get only a hormonal support with a very temporary relief. But with homoeopathy you can strike the hormonal balance permanently which later on also give you regular menses even if you stop the medicine.

Hello- No it not. Natural exercise such as dancing , sporting activities running etc. provides a smooth and from muscle tone to the each and every muscle of the body, so it will make your vagina tight and more flexible, which is good thing in the case of females. However false practice such as masturbation or fingering makes vagina loose and breaks the virginity layer hymen in some cases.

Dear lybrate-user Knowing your PCOS status it is expected that you might be having irregular / prolonged periods. It is advisable that you should get your pregnancy confirmed by urine test after 7-10 days overdue of your periods. Slight temperature changes do occur during menstrual cycle. You must continue your medication for PCOS. Final confirmation is ultimately by "Ultrasound" after you get urinary pregnancy test positive. Wish you luck.

Hello doctor, my wife is into her 37th week of pregnancy. Her scan carried out at 35th week and 37th week both show Amniotic fluid levels at 8.5 cms. Is it a reason to worry or is it low and there could be a risk to the baby?

Within days of an egg being fertilized, the amniotic sac begins to form and fill with fluid. Amniotic fluid acts as a buffer to protect the developing baby, cushioning against any bumps or injury. It also allows for easy movement, which promotes muscular and skeletal development. Normal amniotic fluid level is 5 to 20. Yours is fine...and still will fluctuate based on how much water you're drinking, how much baby pees, and what position baby is in when pockets are measured. I suggest you work with your gynecologist for a remedy. Take care

You should avoid next pregnancy for 6 months from the last abortion. Chances of repeat abortion or pretem delivery increases if one becomes pregnant within 6 months of miscarriage. Also if abortion/ miscarriage was caused by any viral infection, then it will get cured automatically within 3 months time. Use contraception for 6 months.

Flaxseed Oil (Alsi ka Tel) Benefits and Side Effects in Hindi - अलसी के तेल के फायदे और नुकसान

पीले और सुनहरे भूरे रंग के अलसी के फायदे का इस्तेमाल हम प्राचीन काल से ही करते चले आ रहे हैं. ऐसा कहा जाता है कि अलसी के बीज प्राचीनतम खाद्य पदार्थों में से एक हैं. आज पुरे विश्व में इसकी लोकप्रियता है. इसका कारण इसमें पाए जाने वाले तमाम पोषक तत्व हैं. इन पोषक तत्वों में ओमेगा-3, फैटी एसिड, म्युसिलेज और लिगनन प्रमुख हैं. इसके अतिरिक्त इसमें विटामिन बी-1, सेलेनियम, फास्फोरस, तांबा, जिंक, मैग्नीशियम, मैंगनीज और प्रोटीन भी पाया जाता है. इसमें घुलनशील और अघुलनशील फाइबर पाए जाने के कारण ये गेहूं के विकल्प के रूप में भी इस्तेमाल किया जाता है.

1. कैंसर के उपचार में
कैंसर जैसी गंभीर बिमारियों के उपचार में भी अलसी मुख्य भूमिका निभाता है. इसमें पाया जाने वाला लिग्निन नामक तत्व हारमोन के उपापचय और ट्यूमर कोशिकाओं के प्रसार के लिए जिम्मेदार एंजाइमों को अवरुद्ध करके स्तन कैंसर से रक्षा प्रदान करता है.
2. पाचन में सुधार के लिए
अलसी में मौजूद फाइबर हमारे पाचन तंत्र के लिए आवश्यक होता है. आँतों के माध्यम से भोजन को जाने में सहायता करने के साथ ही जठरांत्र को भी स्वस्थ बनाए रखने का काम करते हैं. जब भी इसका सेवन करें पानी भरपूर मात्रा में पिएं.
3. त्वचा के लिए
अलसी के तेल में पाया जाने वाला विटामिन बी, स्वस्थ वसा और त्वचा के लिए उपयोगी है. ये त्वचा को शुष्क होने से बचाता है. इससे मुंहासे, एलर्जी और एक्जीमा जैसी समस्याएं ख़त्म होती हैं. इसके अलावा इसमें एंटी-इन्फ्लेमेटरी गुण भी पाया जाता है. जिससे कि ये त्वचा को कई परेशानियों से बचाता है.
4. ह्रदय रोग में
ह्रदय के स्वास्थ्य को बनाए रखने में भी अलसी के तेल का उपयोग किया जाता है. इसमें पाया जाने वाला मोनोअनसैचुरेटेड, पॉलिअनसैचुरेटेड वसा के साथ ही ओमेगा-3 और फैटी एसिड ह्रदय के लिए उपयोगी है. अलसी, धमनियों में पट्टिका के निर्माण और ह्रदय रोग और धमनियों के सुजन को कम करने में भी मददगार है.
5. वजन कम करने में
वजन कम करने के लिए अलसी के बीज में पाया जाने वाला ओमेगा-3, फाइबर, फैटी एसिड, और लिगनिन वजन कम करने में सहायक होता है. इसमें विटामिन बी, मैग्नीशियम, पोटेशियम, और जस्ता भी पाया जाता है जो कि वजन घटाने में समर्थ हैं.
6. बालों के लिए
बालों को झड़ने से बचाने के लिए अलसी में मौजूद विटामिन ई मददगार साबित होता है. ये बालों को मजबूत और स्वस्थ बनाने का काम भी करता है. अलसी के तेल से आप अपने बालों को घुंघराले भी बना सकते हैं.
7. रजनोवृत्ति में
राजनोवृत्ति के दौरान महिलाओं को होने वाली तमाम समस्याओं से बचाने में भी अलसी का तेल प्रमुख भूमिका निभाता है. इसमें मासिक धर्म चक्र को बनाए रखने और प्रजनन क्षमता को बढ़ाने की भी क्षमता होती है.
8. शुगर के उपचार में
अलसी के सेवन से टाइप-2 के शुगर के मरीज अपने रक्त शर्करा के स्तर में सुधार ला सकते हैं. इसमें पाया जाने वाला अल्फ़ा लिनोलेनिक एसिड प्रोटीन और फाइबर को भी नियंत्रित करने का काम करते हैं.
9. कोलेस्ट्राल कम करने में
अलसी के बीज में पाए जाने वाले फ्लेवनोइड्स और घुलनशील फाइबर कोलेस्ट्राल के अवशोषण में सहायक हैं. रोजाना 2-4 चम्मच अलसी के बीज का सेवन कोलेस्ट्राल के नियंत्रण में सहायक होता है.
10. विषाक्त पदार्थों के उन्मूलन में
हमारे शरीर में कई तरह के विषाक्त पदार्थ निर्मित होते रहते हैं. इनका निकलना बहुत आवश्यक होता है. अलसी में मौजूद ओमेगा-3 फैटी एसिड शामिल है जो कि इन अपशिष्टों के निकासी का कम करता है. इसके अलावा इसमें घुलनशील और अघुलनशील फाइबर भी विषाक्त पदार्थों के उन्मूलन में सहायक है.

अलसी के तेल के नुकसान

  • शुगर के उपचार के समय इसका इस्तेमाल करने पर अपने रक्त शर्करा के स्तर का जाँच कराते रहें.
  • अधिक मात्रा में इसके सेवन से बचें. इससे एलर्जी हो सकता है.
  • गर्भवती महिलाओं और स्तनपान कराने वाली माताओं को इसके इस्तेमाल से बचना चाहिए.
  • किसी चिकित्सक के परामर्श से ही इसकी औषधीय इस्तेमाल करना चाहिए.

Diwali Special - Things You Must Do To Prevent Yourself From Pollution!

Diwali Special - Things You Must Do To Prevent Yourself From Pollution!

With Diwali, the festival of lights, the festive spirit associated with the joyous occasion can be felt in the air. Do you know what else can be felt in the air as well? Pollution! There is a startling increase in the pollution level due to the burning of firecrackers. Apart from the new clothes, sweets and being with our loved ones, the crackers are an inseparable part of Diwali. So know how you can stay safe while having the best time of your life?

Suspended particulate matter

Innumerable tiny particles called the suspended particulate matter are found in the air that we breathe. The amount of SPM found in the air determines the level of air pollution. While the safe level of particulate matter is 100 per cubic meter, many Indian cities report a level of around 1600 which is 14 times higher than what is considered safe. 

The suspended particulate matter can cause severe respiratory diseases since they can stick to the sides of the airway and travel deep into the lungs. The particulate matter less than 2.5 microns in diameter called the PM 2.5 can get deep into that portion of the lungs where gas exchange between inhaled air and the bloodstream occurs. These particles are quite dangerous because they travel to the alveolar portion of the lungs which does not have an efficient means to remove the particles from the passage. Moreover, if the particles are water soluble, then they will eventually pass into the bloodstream.

Decrease in lung function

PM 2.5 can cause aggravation of respiratory and cardiovascular diseases while also causing premature death. The pollution level rises to a great extent during Diwali when firecrackers are burnt, and this gives the PM 2.5 level a big shoot up. People generally develop chronic bronchitis and decreased lung function among other respiratory problems.

The gaseous particles released as a result of burning firecrackers tend to stay suspended in the air. The smaller particles stay suspended for days or weeks and travel farther while the bigger particles known as PM 10 stay suspended in the air for minutes or hours. While PM 2.5 particles travel for hundreds of miles, the PM 10 particles usually travel within a range of 100 yards to 30 miles.

Blockage in the lungs

While inhaling, the particles present in the air enter through our respiratory tract into our lungs. While PM 2.5 is small and passes into our bloodstreams, the larger PM 10 particles get stuck at the sides and the narrow passages of the lungs. Also, some people have the habit of breathing through their mouth. This allows much more particles to enter easily into the deepest portions of your lungs. 

Know how you can cope with it

While you enjoy the festive spirit, it is also important to avoid any long-term health issues. So, apart from the time you are into lighting crackers, follow these simple steps to be safe while having fun.

  • When you are on the road travel while wearing a face mask, preferably N95 respirator and roll up your car’s windows. 
  • You can also check the air quality index in your neighborhood before stepping out to be sure.
  • It is advised not to exercise outdoors for a few days since the SPM will be high during and after Diwali. 
  • Do not let children play outdoors for long hours. 
  • Taking garlic and vitamin C rich foods will improve your immune system which can help cope with the situation.
  • If you have any chronic pulmonary diseases such as asthma, additional care needs to be exercised so that the condition does not worsen. 

So, this 2017, have a happy and lung-friendly Diwali! Consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Health Tips to manage chronic fatigue
  1. Keep your activity on an even level. Avoid overexertion and emotional stress. Allow time for yourself to relax. Yoga, meditation or deep breathing can help manage stress and keep you fit.
  2. Improve sleep habits. Go to bed and get up at the same time every day. Limit daytime resting.
  3. Avoid taking caffeine and alcohol before bedtime. These may affect sleep.
  4. Exercise regularly, but not close to the bedtime. Experts suggest not exercising, at least, 3-4hours before bedtime.
  5. Limit artificial light at night. Use low wattage bulbs, cover windows, turn off the television and avoid using phones and computer screens in the dark.
  6. Increase exposure to sunlight at the day time. Keep the curtains open in the house.
  7. Have a healthy and antioxidant-rich diet which are high in fiber such as fresh fruits and vegetables, avoid packaged foods.

Dear Dr. I am 25 years old girl. I want to know whether there is a permanent treatment for pcos. Can a girl with pcos become a mother. Is this problem common these days in girl. Is this a very big problem and will there be any problem in conceiving.

Hi, pcod is a hormonal disorder, very common nowadays and modern lifestyle has important role in it's etiology. Although permanent cure is not possible but can be controlled to some extent with regular & prolonged treatment. With treatment, pregnancy is also possible. Treatment involves lifestyle changes, weight loss, exercise and hormone therapy under supervision.
