Call now and get homeopathic remedy. Headache will become very less frequent within a week. Eye strain, poor diet, bad posture, frequent eating junk food, less water intake are common causes for headache in young. If it persists inspite of lifestyle changes, get cat scan.

Early morning white serum discharges after urine. And no hardness in penis please consult medicine for long term cure.

Dear lybrate user. Semen seeping through penis after urination or while having sexual thoughts or while with an attractive girl or woman or while waking up in the morning etc is common and it is not a problem at all. This is a natural body procedure whereby your body tries to evacuate the stored semen. Semen is produced within your body whenever you are sexually (even slightly) excited and is stored within your body. Now this stored semen is a waste product that your body wants to throw out. This is a natural process and you don't have any control over it. I also assure you that this is never unhealthy. Take care.

PCOS - How It Can Be Diagnosed?

PCOS - How It Can Be Diagnosed?

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a condition, which is born due to an imbalance of hormones within the female body. When this happens, the female body faces anumber of problems as far as her periods or menstrual cycles goes, besides finding it difficult to conceive naturally and easily. Let us find out more about this condition.

PCOS and hormones
To begin with, let us understand what hormones are. These are chemical impulses that send messages to various parts of the brain and rest of the body to signal the release of other kinds of hormones that may be vital for various functions. In PCOS, it is normally seen that the sex hormones are thrown out of balance, due to which the ovaries start producing a small dose of some male hormones. This creates problems as far as ovulation is concerned and also, it gives rise to the growth of facial hair, acne and changes in the overall appearance of the patient. Insulin resistance is another cause that may also trigger PCOS. It is also an inherited issue in many cases.

Symptoms
From irregular periods to an increase in acne and facial hair, there are many symptoms that may point at the existence of this condition. Fertility problems and issues related to normal ovulation are also often seen in women who are suffering from this condition due to the irregular periods. Additionally, depression may be seen in many patients who are suffering from this condition on a chronic basis. Thinning of hair and excess weight gain with difficulty in losing extra pounds may also be indicative of PCOS.

Diagnosis
The diagnosis of PCOS is usually done with the help of a physical examination as well as a blood test that will primarily help in determining the sugar levels and insulin. The doctor will also conduct other hormone tests so as to understand which hormones are not in balance and which ones may be triggering changes in the body. Apart from all this, the doctor will also study the body mass index (BMI) of the patient to find out if there has been a sudden and drastic change on the weight of the patient. During the lab tests, where the blood and urine are examined, the doctor will also seek to rule out any anomalies in the thyroid gland. An ultrasound of the ovaries will also be conducted.

Treatment
Weight loss programs as well as diet tweaks that remove excess dairy and meat may be recommended by the doctor. Further, the doctor may also put the patient on birth control pills so as to bring better balance of hormones. Moreover, moderate exercise will be required for the patient so that the normal production of hormones may be resumed eventually. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

Few of the common reasons for yellow urination are jaundice less water intake over exertion urinary tract infection or it may be due to any drug effect like multivitamins etc. so it would be better to find out the cause first and then proceed for treatment.

Dear lybrate user since the stone has formed inside body it is due to your susceptibility and tendency which needs a constitutional treatment for cure, surgery is a mechanical process to remove the stone it cannot cure the issue and may lead to future recurrences too.

you may be either not drinking enough water due to which your bladder muscles are not sufficiently toned so as to control the leakage ,or you may be having UTI due to which the control on urination gets a bit inhibited

The prostate gland is situated at the neck of the urinary bladder. The semen is composed of sperms that are made in testes and prostatic fluid that is made in the prostate gland. It is not unusual to occasionally get some mucus discharge (coming from prostate) at the end of urination. If it is frequent or if the discharge is profuse or yellowish, then infections in prostate gland and urinary tract need to be ruled out.

From last fifteen days, at evening and night time after every 15-20 minutes I go for urine. What can I do.
Cut down the consumption of water intake in the evening learn to control and make it a habit not to visit the bathroom before two hrs initially and then three hrs later on it may cause you some difficulty in the beginning but it is worth trying as it will benefit you in the long run.
