I am 33 years old and ny husband is 37 years old. I had fibroid in my uterine lining but it was removed successful. From past 1 and 1/2 years we have been trying to conceive but it was unsuccessful. Then my doctors told me to do IUI treatment just for 2 cycles but we have done in 1 cycle but it was again unsuccessful. Now my doctor is saying to do IVF treatment continuously for 2 cycles. And my AHM is 1.23 and egg reserves is low.

Considering your age to be 33 with very low ovarian reserve I would suggest you to go for ivf reason being your biological clock is increasing so with time your reserve will go down and then it would be difficult for you to conceive with your own egg and would require egg donors so I think you should go for it now instead of going for iui.

Yoghurt - What Is Good Or Bad In It?

Yoghurt - What Is Good Or Bad In It?

Only rarely does a food product can be associated with both the names of “good product” and a “bad product”. This is because the content of the food might vary and over a period of time, the same can be termed bad.
In a nutshell, yoghurt or the plain, low-fat yoghurt is an excellent health food. But however, the same cannot be said about certain ingredients in the yoghurt like the added sweeteners. So let's talk about what to look for in a healthy yoghurt.

  1. Fat: Most yoghurts have the same percentage of fat as the milk. Many people do prefer low-fat yoghurt over milk as it has a good taste and maintains a healthy balance of the saturated fats
  2. Protein: Yoghurt is a good source of lean protein. But the amount of protein in yoghurt products differs quite a bit. It is better to have yoghurt that has less water content as their protein ratio would be intact.

Yoghurts to avoid:
Now comes the trickiest part of the types of yoghurt to avoid. Mostly try avoiding sweetened yoghurt. Most of them have artificial sweeteners and they are a strict “no” for your body. Also stay away from “lite” yoghurts. It is true that the fat is removed in these yoghurts, but to compensate for the fat removed, manufacturers add thickeners such as gelatin, gum or starch. The result may not be as beneficial as a natural yoghurt and they can be effectively be categorised as a “bad” yoghurt.

There are many ways by which you can customise your taste by using a yoghurt.

  • Fruit and yoghurt, a cup of plain, low-fat yoghurt, a handful of fresh fruit, and a dash of nuts is all that you need. You can mix the contents and to sweeten it you can add a few drops of honey.
  • You can also try incorporating yoghurt into other meal plans and snacks throughout the day. They also can be had any time of the day.
  • You can even alternate this with that of sour cream and see the taste difference.
  • You can add 1teaspoon of flax seeds to 1 bowl curd and take it as mid meal.
  • You can make fruit smoothie with curd, fruits and nuts. Take it as breakfast option for weight watchers.

One of the biggest criteria is to check the nutritional value of the yoghurt before taking it for consumption. It would be even better if you check your doctor about the type of yoghurt you can take in. Apart from the health benefits, yoghurt can be used in a number of homemade facials and hair masks. They are also predominantly used as skin moisturisers and be beneficial in getting a blemish free skin. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dietitian/Nutritionist.

Hi lybrate-user, chances are that you will have a normal pregnancy now. However, I would suggest that you visit a gynecologist who is a IVF specialist or infertility specialist to know your other options as well. I am not trying to scare you, just trying to well prepare you. There are various options an IVF specialist can provide you. Here some information on various type of IVF treatments: Type of Fertility Treatments 1. In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) is a reproductive technology in which a doctor removes eggs from the ovaries with a small needle passed through the top of the vagina. The extracted eggs are then combined with prepared semen inside the lab – starting the process of fertilization. After this happens, the resulting embryo is placed back into the uterus via a small catheter passed through the cervix where the embryo implants and develops. 2. Gamete Intra Fallopian Transfer (GIFT) is a similar to the IVF procedure, except the eggs are first combined with washed semen inside the fallopian tubes before fertilization. GIFT has no benefits over IVF. Now GIFT is rarely performed because, doctors must do a laparoscopy. 3. Intra Cytosplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) is a procedure in which the doctor injects a single sperm into each egg, using a microscope and sophisticated instruments to perform the procedure. ICSI is performed as part of the IVF treatment cycle. It can increase the chance offertilization and is often recommended when the male partner has a low sperm count. In fact, ICSI has given new hope to men who have been previously diagnosed with male infertility. For males with absolutely no sperm, doctors can perform Donor Insemination (DI), in which donor sperm is placed inside the uterus via a procedure called intrauterine insemination. Hope this helps. Good Luck.

Ovarian Cysts - How To Treat It?

MBBS, MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Ovarian Cysts - How To Treat It?

All women have two ovaries located on either side of the uterus. They are fundamental for the process of child birth. However ovarian cysts have emerged as major problems which most women suffer from. In this, small pockets filled with fluids develop on the surface or within the ovaries. Though they are generally harmless, often times disappearing without any treatment, they do have the potential to create complications during child birth. Treatment of ovarian cysts depends on the size and the quantity of the cysts. 


Some of the treatments available are-

1. Patience and a careful watch
In case medical examinations reveal tiny cysts, patience can be the key word. If you did not suffer from perceptible symptoms and the cysts were revealed only through tests, you must follow it with regular visits to the doctor. Few medications and regular ultrasound examinations are all you need in such a case.

2. Contraceptives
Birth control pills or contraceptives may be sometimes prescribed to you as possible medications to treat the cysts. Regular administering of these medicines deters the possibility of further development of cysts.  They also benefit greatly in reducing the possibilities of suffering from ovarian cancer in the future.

3. Operations
In case the tests reveal large cysts, operations or surgical removal of them may be the only possible solution.  Operations are generally suggested if the cysts have persisted for a long time and are accompanied by terrible pain in the lower abdomen.

4. Ovarian cystectomy 
This is performed when the ovaries are kept intact and only the cysts are carefully removed.

5. Oophorectomy
In this form of surgery, only the ovary that is affected with the cysts is removed, while the other is kept intact. Both the ovaries might also have to be surgically removed if they are found to be affected.

6. Hysterectomy and subsequent removal of fallopian tubes and uterus
This is done when the cysts developed have the potential of becoming cancer us. In such a situation, an extreme measure is adopted with the complete removal of the ovaries along with the uterus and fallopian tubes. This is done in order to prevent the subsequent spreading of cancer. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

This could be probably due to hormonal imbalance. You have to See your gynecologist to regularize your menstrual cycle. Meanwhile, you can take pradrantak churna and chandra prabha vati (Ayurvedic medicine) 2 tabs. twice daily till your next menses.

If you had periods, then chances of pregnancy should not be there but some times even while pregnant, some ladies do get little bit of bleeding. If you are very apprehensive, simply get a pregnancy test done.

Hi lybrate user, it looks like local irritation due to infection. Please visit gynaecologist for internal examination so it can be treated with medication. She should keep local area clean and dry. Use cotton undergarments and change it twice a day. Wear loose cotton trousers.
