Hello doctor, my wife is feeling tired after she climbs one floor and after her kitchen work. She has also lost her weight in this few months. When checked her hb count was 8.5. What can be done. Please advice.

Ideally other abnormalities of hb should be ruled out by one blood test, cause of low hb should be detected and low hb to be treated. The best way is to consult a doctor who can do all these.

Pregnancy - 5 Things You Must Ensure!

Pregnancy - 5 Things You Must Ensure!

So you have just found out that you are pregnant and you and your partner are over the moon about it! While congratulations are in order, so are a host of tips which will help you settle into the pregnancy. It is important to remember that the first trimester of your pregnancy is a crucial phase where you may not change that much physically, but will be prone to many emotional changes. It is also a phase where you will make way for the changes that will inevitably come in the next two trimesters and for a long time after delivery of the baby too.

Read on to unravel our first trimester guide.

  1. Pregnancy Test: You must ensure that you know you are pregnant by monitoring your menstrual cycles closely so that even one missed period points at the possibility of pregnancy. This test can be a home based kit available at the chemists' or can even be conducted with a lab test based on a urine sample. Despite the results that you may get on a home pregnancy test, it is best to get a professional opinion as well.
  2. Finding the Right Doctor: In this phase of your pregnancy itself, it is imperative to home in on a gynaecologist who will put you ease. Take care to pick someone who may be recommended by family and friends. Have a talk with the doctor a few times to see how well he or she engages you as a patient and if you are suitably convinced with the sessions and appointments.
  3. Activity: While heavy activities may not be recommended by all doctors as the foetus needs to latch on, one can indulge in plenty of walks and a normal routine as well. Ensure that your pregnancy is a normal one and ask your doctor about any precautions that you may need to take with the progressing trimesters. Also, find ways to deal with any morning sickness with the help of the doctor. 
  4. Supplements: In this crucial phase, ensure that your doctor gives you plenty of folic acid supplements that you must ingest on a regular basis. This will keep any risk of neural tube birth defects at bay. 
  5. Other Medication: Find out more about over the counter drugs or any medication that you may have been taking as this may have to be stopped or adjusted for the pregnancy. The doctor should be able to guide you on this aspect too.

The other activities during the first trimester include taking pre natal appointments and choosing and interacting with your caregiver who will also be a support after you have had the baby.

At 28 years hysterectomy is not the option. If you r suffering from fibroids then fibroids can be removed. If you have excessive bleeding during menses and completed family, then endometrial ablation is one therapy in which inner lining of the uterus is removed.

I am 29 years female, every month in periods time I fell stomach pain. Its very pain. What I will do?

You should not ignore this condition. You must get an ultrasound to exclude any pathology particularly endometriosis which is very common at your age and can be diagnosed easily. Once ultrasound report is available further treatment may be suggested.

Hello, This is menarche for you. THE PERIOD related pain is common and can be controlled with antispasmodics like TAB EVASPAS twice a day for 3-5 days. Also use sanitary napkins throughout the day for bleeding and keep changing after 4 hrs depending on the flow. Drink plenty of water to keep yourself hydrated.

You are anemic and treatment is not iron but vitamin b12 & folic acid. Macro means large +cytic means cell = macrocytic means red blood cells are large but are normochromic (normal in color - heam color is red, given by iron to blood forming cells called rbcs) macroovalocytes means abnormal large blood cells rbcs which are not routinely present. Take b 12 & folic acid + high protein diet + vitamin c in food to correct anemia. Get tested again after 2 months.

Treating and Managing Postpartum Hemorrhage

Treating and Managing Postpartum Hemorrhage

An expecting mother runs the risk of suffering from a range of complications during and after pregnancy. You were very wrong to think childbirth is about antenatal care and once the baby is born, the mother is safe from danger. Both C- Sections and vaginal deliveries take into account the hovering threat of impediments. Sudden problems like perineal lacerations, amniotic cavity issues, umbilical cord issues, abnormal fetal heart rate, and stalled labor might be experienced during giving birth to a child. Childbirth is again followed by another set of medical conditions. Postpartum Hemorrhage is one such condition that, if left unattended, can turn out to be fatal.

Postpartum Hemorrhage: An overview

Patients suffering from Postpartum Hemorrhage are subjected to loss of more than 500 mL of blood after delivery. In certain rare cases, women have been reported with a loss of more than 1000 mL of blood. Morbidity statistics say postpartum hemorrhage is the most common trigger to maternal morbidity in developed countries. Even after ensuring the efficacy of preventive measures to prevalent risk factors, lapses do exist. A loss of more than 1000 mL of blood can severely endanger your health. It may lead to hemodynamic instability. Treatment of Postpartum Hemorrhage should systematically concentrate on two important things; firstly, diagnosis and management of root causes resulting in a hemorrhage and secondly, dealing with hypovolemic shock along with resuscitation of obstetric hemorrhage. You can also take the package for Living Healthy - Woman.

Preventive Measures:

An exigency situation with regard to postpartum hemorrhage can be avoided or controlled in the following ways:

  1. Detecting signs of acute anemia and thus rectifying the condition before delivery.
  2. Routine episiotomy should be done away with.
  3. The doctor should inquire of the mother's opinion on blood transfusions.
  4. There should be frequent examinations of the person's vaginal flow and vital signs to check for slow and steady bleeding.

The risk of retained placenta in the third stage of labor can increase chances of postpartum hemorrhage. Active management on part of the hospital can take care of this. Regulated cord traction, early cord clamping and cutting and most basically use of a uterotonic drug soon after the delivery of the anterior shoulder can prevent a prolonged third stage, thus hindering a hemorrhage from occurring.

Oxytocin is an advisable drug to prevent the chances of a hemorrhage. Pregnant women may or may not give their consent to its use. It has very few side- effects. Prophylactic administration of this drug is known to reduce rates of postpartum hemorrhage by forty percent.

Management: Excessive blood loss after childbirth can be tackled through hysterectomy. Women who wish to remain fertile can go in for B- lynch uterine compression sutures, artery litigations, uterine packing or tamponade procedures.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a specilized gynaecologist and ask a free question.

My friend had tried sex with her boyfriend but they cannot make it. Her boyfriend tried 4-5 times to enter but as he try, she started having pain. One more time they tried without putting on but again the same problem. He ejaculate outside after 10-15 minutes. My question is there stand a chance of her getting pregnant? After all this, when goes to pee and there was blood coming out. Please suggest something.

Blood can be because of ruptured hymen. If he has ejaculated outside her then there are no chances of pregnancy. Anyways still you can wait till she gets her periods, if she misses one then y ou can get a urine pregnancy test done. That would remove all doubts.

You won't feel anything about foetus at 6 weeks. Please do not be over imaginative. Can you send your or your's husband's mail address? I can send you a booklet (at no cost) which may help you with scientific knowledge about development of a foetus during pregnancy.

Douching or vaginal washing is not a good method of preventing pregnancy as sperms are highly motile and swim up the vagina. This method will have a high failure rate. Ask your friend to use regular methods of contraception like condoms.

What is the best time to conceiving.
If you have regular periods of say 28 to 30 days, and other tests are normal, you can maximise your chances of conceiving by having intercourse as naturally possible between 10th and 17th day.

Most probably you are suffering from poly cystic ovarian disease. In this problem instead of follicle rupture and ovulation follicle is transformed into small cystic structure along the periphery of ovaries. Regular female hormones are insufficient to maintain regular periods also causes acne pimples And hair-loss with some weight gain sometimes.
