These are hormonal treatments you can not couple both the things together like infertility treatments and delaying periods first you decide what you want to do if you want to forego the infertility treatment for some time then only you should go in for postponing the periods

I am a 25 year old female. I have polycystic ovary syndrome. I am on diane 30 since 6 months. I had a sexual intercourse about 2 weeks ago with protection. I started getting a scanty periods during the scheduled time of my menstrual flow. Today is my first day and the bleeding is very low. Is there any possibility that I am pregnant.

MBBS, DGO (cal)

You have said. Had sex with protection. You started getting scanty period, so possibility of pregnancy is less. Possibility of pregnancy is further less due to antigonadotropic effect of this medicine which causes failure of ovulation. This may be another reason that you are having scanty period. Yet you can get your urine tested for pregnancy after the period id over. You are taking diane 35 since 6 months, just to remind you. Are you monitoring liver function, your blood glucose, sodium & potassium levels? continuous use is necessary. But it is also necessary to monitor these parameters as they are affected by this medicine. Your treating gynaecologist must be knowing all these.

Need further information for suggesting better options. As of now for regulation of your periods, best is to take oral pills used for contraception for regulation of your periods, fulfuling the hormonal needs of the body and gives withdrawal bleeding after 25 - 27 days. Repeat the cycles for 3 months and allow the uterus to go into natural cycles so wait for some time and see. Basing onthe out come further advise is given. Good luck.

No, your endometrium thickening might be a result of endometrosis which have a chances that a fibroid can occur in your uterus but not definately. Without medication endometrosis can't be treated or your periods will not let it revert to the normal size.

Vulvodynia is a chronic pain syndrome and cause is not known as it is believed to be due to genetic, diet or autuimmune or immunology where body gets angry with itself, one has to rule out other causes of swellings here by doing a biopsy test. Treatment involves a number of measures, however none is universally effective and none of the studies done so far show any promise. Proper vulvular care, diet, counselling, and conservative treatment, if not successful may be surgery needs to done. This condition affects 16 % of women but it is no consolation. Keep the area clean, wear cottons and be specially careful to maintain hygiene during periods.

4 Amazing Benefits of Lucid Dreaming

Lucid dreaming is any dream where you’re aware that what you’re experiencing is a dream. It takes place during your REM sleep (a sleep state that is characterised by random and quick eye movements alongside muscle paralysis). A study conducted on lucid dreaming shows that this form of dreaming comes with an increased activity in those areas of the brain that are, in general, dormant during sleep.

There are quite a few techniques of lucid dreaming. One of the ways is to maintain a dream journal, where you write down the dream you’ve had just after waking up. This trains your brain to remember your dreams so that you can consciously enter into a state of dreaming.

Lucid dreaming has impressive health benefits you’d be surprised to know about.
1. Develops your memory
Both lucid sleep and dreaming enable you to reinforce everything you may have learned when you were awake. They also enable you to consciously select the things that you want to remember.
While sleep, in general, is responsible for solidifying the memories that you create when you’re awake, dreams, in particular, are responsible for solidifying your episodic memory. Standing for the memory of your personal experiences of a particular place and time, episodic memory performs the function of a muscle memory (memory that is concerned with the development of motor skills) and helps you to learn new skills, while perfecting the skills you already have.

3. Helps in improving your game
In this context, lucid dreaming can significantly improve your gaming skills as you get the chance to practice them in the dream world. A study shows that the neurons that get activated when you dream of scoring a goal is the same as those when you’re scoring the goal in the real world. So, the visualisation of the act of scoring enables you to improve your performance in the real world.

3. Helps in overcoming anxiety
Being in a lucid dream gives you the opportunity to practice any number of terrifying scenarios, so that you can make changes as and when you want to in order to overcome anxiety.
Representing a state between being wakeful and in a REM sleep, lucid dreaming offers you with the possibility to push your boundaries where you can be anyone and do anything. It can be a good stress relieving mechanism.

4. It improves your sleep
One of the biggest benefits of lucid dreaming is that it augments your overall sleep quality by making you more aware of your dreams, and subsequently of your sleep. Awareness is an important factor for getting sound sleep since it helps in experiencing true relaxation. The outcome is you end up feeling more rested and refreshed. Gaining control over your dreams can also help in reducing nightmares, thereby improving your sleep.

It is only because of the hormonal imbalance caused by pcod, still if there is any kind of doubt you can get a pregnancy test done for confirmation. Pcod suffering females generally have irregular cycles, so consult gyne for medicines along with that start doing regular exercise for weight loss and take healthy nutritious diet including fruits vegetable and low fat dairy products.
