Pregnancy test will be positive if done 7 days after skipping of your periods. So, if you have done your test on or after 4th july and is negative then you are not pregnant. Sometimes it happens that you may miss periods. I will suggest you to go again for pregnancy test for the last time right now and if again it is negative then just relax, you will soon get your periods.

Hello Lybrate user- Oligo mennhorea or less flow during menses might occur due to two causes, first if you have developed anaemia (low hb count) or you have experienced sudden gain in your weight due to hormonal disturbance as seen in PCOD or Thyroid disease.

First of all, be clear that pregnancy can't happen during menses! Secondly, since you took i-Pill which contains high dose progesterone, the body had hormonal disturbance which led to stoppage of menses in between.

Hello Dr. M 35 weeks pregnant. My baby's umbilical cord is around the neck. What are the chances of normal delivery.
This can be assessed only during a trial of labor with careful monitoring, if descent of head occurs and fetal heart remains good you can go for normal labour but careful monitoring is the key to success.

Is pcod a chronic disease. At what stage is it dangerous. Can plan for a child having pcod.

MBBS, MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology
IVF Specialist, Delhi
It is important to understand that PCOS is not a disease, but a syndrome- which literally means that it is a group of symptoms resulting from involvement of multiple systems of body. It can affect anyone from a young adolescent girl to an adult woman even beyond a woman’s reproductive age. The name polycystic ovary is derived from the typical appearance of the ovaries, wherein multiple small cyst like spaces can be seen inside the ovaries. But, one must understand that this polycystic appearance of the ovaries is an outcome of the syndrome rather than being a cause for that. The PCOS can present in many ways, which can range from common symptoms such as weight gain, acne, facial and excessive body hair (hirsutism) and irregular menstruation to very serious medico-social issues such as infertility, diabetes, hypertension and uterine cancers. Most common question that I get asked is if PCOS can be cured? Very sadly the answer is No- PCOS cannot be cured! But, the symptoms of PCOS can most certainly be controlled using appropriate medical treatment and lifestyle interventions described above. The key to control of these symptoms is diagnosis at an early age and well titrated intervention from an expert. Remember that it is a condition of hormonal imbalance in the body, which results in irregular ovulation, over production of male sex hormones and resistance to the action of insulin. So, in very simple words, all the interventions would be focused on correcting this hormonal imbalance in the body. Most women with PCOS are able to overcome the challenge to their fertility with proper treatment. This treatment may vary from simple measures such as oral tablets to induce ovulation to IUI and all the way to IVF. One should always seek an expert’s opinion for management of PCOS when planning for a baby, as the doctor is the best person to support in this endeavor. Always remember that PCOS stays with the woman throughout her journey of life and she has to remain vigilant to identify its long term risks such as diabetes, hypertension and uterine cancers in their early stage!

Somatic Symptom Disorder: Causes, Symptoms and Treatment

Somatic Symptom Disorder: Causes, Symptoms and Treatment

Somatic symptom disorder is when you put so much focus on symptoms such as pain or fatigue that you have trouble functioning or experience severe emotional distress. You will be visiting the doctor a lot, completely unnecessarily and will waste a lot of money when you have no major health concerns. However, there are treatments, which can help you cope with this problem. Read further to find out what they are:

Symptoms 

  1. Worrying excessively about an illness, which has not yet occurred
  2. Frequent health care visits
  3. Fear of physical activity damaging your body
  4. Fearing that the evaluation of doctors is not adequate

There are many more symptoms, which may indicate that you are suffering from somatic symptom disorder. However, the most important way of telling whether someone is suffering from somatic symptom disorder or not is to see whether the patient is overly worried about a physical problem, which has not yet occurred. One of the first steps in making sure that this does not happen is finding out what causes the problem and preventing it. Here are the causes of somatic symptom disorder.

Causes: As with other psychological disorders, the exact cause of somatic symptom disorder is not yet known. However, there are a number of factors which may increase the risk of it, such as: 

  1. Genetic and biological factors: These as well as an increased sensitivity to pain are some of the factors, which you have no control over. 
  2. Environment you grew up in: Just like the genes you have, the environment you grew up in and your family influence will have a major impact on whether you develop the condition as well.
  3. Problems processing emotions: When people have problems processing emotions, their physical symptoms seem like a bigger problem than they actually are.

Treatment: Luckily, there are treatments for this disorder as well, which include.

  1. Psychotherapy: Psychotherapy is the most common treatment used to help people with somatic symptom disorder.
  2. Medications: Since depression and pain often occur when a person is suffering from somatic symptom disorder, antidepressants can be given as well. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist and ask a free question.

Hi doctor I am a 23 years old boy. Me and my x gf both are healthy and we don't have any kind of sexual doses too. We last had unprotected sex 2 month back. So I am getting married in a week. And my future wife is healthy too and me too, As we tested. So can I had unprotected sex with my wife. Is it ok to do. Can I get HIV. And I want to know what should be the time gap to have sex. Coz last I had sex 2 mnth ago with my x and now after 8 day I am going to have sex with my wife. So is it safe to have unprotected sex.

It is obvious you are engaging in unsafe sex with your cousins. Oral sex will protect the female partners from getting pregnant, so that way it is safe, provided you are not having vaginal sex with them. Semen gets metabolised in the salivary and gastric secretions so there no sequelae to it. But having multiple partners does put every one at risk of acquiring infections.
