Pain during periods is very common nowadays due to unhealthy lifestyles. For this you need to change your lifestyle. 1) avoid eating junk & spicy food. 2) have black tea with ginger & 1 tsf cow ghee 3) make ladoo of urad daal fried in sesame oil & mixed with jaggery. Have 1 daily for 3 months 4) eat two tbsps of flax seeds during your period 5) drink a lot of water & fresh juices 6) go for matra vasti at a panchakarma centre 7) half a teaspoon of powder of sesame seeds taken with hot water twice daily acts excellently in reducing spasmodic pain 8) using heating pads or hot water bags around the area relaxes the stiff muscles and reduces pain by bringing oxygen in the area.

Hello, You need to get an USG done to check for foetal viability and heart beat or early placental separation. Tranexamic acid will not help but progesterone support should have been started and complete bed rest is indicated.

First trimester pregnancy: What to expect!

First trimester pregnancy: What to expect!

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.

10 signs you are a sex addict and you need serious HELP!

Most people are of the assumption that they naturally just have a high libido, or they enjoy sex often, when in fact, sex has become more of an addiction.

Having a love for sex is one thing, but having it negatively impact your life is another. It is important to understand the difference between loving something and being obsessed with it.

Most people are of the assumption that they naturally just have a high libido, or they enjoy sex often, when in fact, sex has become more of an addiction.

Here are 10 signs your love of sex has become an addiction.

1. You have no control over your sexual wants and needs and indulge in risky and impulsive behaviour like having sex with multiple strangers.

2. Compulsively engaging in internet or virtual sex.

3. You have had unprotected sex with different sexual partners despite knowing about the risks.

4. You're unable to concentrate on work and your sex life has constantly been interfering with your family life as well.

5. Feeling restless, anxious, irritated and even angry when you don't get frequent sex

6. You've been living a double life where you have managed to keep your extremely active sex life a secret from not only your family members but also all your friends.

7. You spend an inordinate amount of time and money on looking for ways to find more sexual partners.

8. You spend a lot of time watching porn and masturbating.

9. Desperately wanting to cut down on the amount of time you spend pursuing meaningless sex, whether it is online or in real life, but being unable to do so.

10. You've become a pathological liar to cover up your whereabouts and the double life you've been leading.

What It Really Means to Have Endometriosis

DGO, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Delhi
What It Really Means to Have Endometriosis

Endometriosis is a painful condition where the endometrium tissue lining the walls of the uterus, grows as implants outside the womb of the patient. This can lead to a number of painful conditions and is often considered as a common cause behind severe pelvic pain, as far as women are concerned. Here is all you need to know about Endometriosis and pelvic pain:

  1. Painful Menstruation: Depending on the stage of the condition, the implants could remain on the surface or go deeper into the ovaries which may cause acute and severe problem during ovulation as well as the menstrual cycles. This is one of the symptoms that one must not ignore. If you are having painful cramps that affect the pelvic area and the abdomen, and if these cramps last throughout the duration of the cycle, then there are strong chances that you are experiencing the pain that comes with Endometriosis. 
  2. Pain During and After Intercourse: While there are many reasons why women may face pain during intercourse, it may be noted that vaginal and pelvic pain that come during and after intercourse could point towards the presence of Endometriosis which is causing irritation and discomfort due to the implants. 
  3. Bowel Movements and Urination: Usually, pelvic pain may trickle down to and also get activated by the bowels when there is a motion as well as urination. This is a common problem that can cause pain which spreads throughout the region if the patient is suffering from Endometriosis. 
  4. Bloating and Other Symptoms: When the abdomen and nearby regions face bloating due to the implants and their painful spread, the pelvic region as a whole bears the brunt in terms of severe pelvic pain. The bloating and other symptoms like loose motions and constipation can also create pain in the abdomen and pelvic region on a persistence basis. Sharp pains may also shoot up and down the lower back due to such symptoms which should not be ignored if they do not abate within a few days. 
  5. Misdiagnosis: Many times, the bloating and pelvic pain may be linked with pelvic inflammatory disease which causes pain in the muscles and joints. But if you are having pain in the abdomen as well as problems during your menstrual cycle, then it may be helpful to have the tests for Endometriosis done as well. 

In order to diagnose the condition, the doctor must ensure that proper imaging tests like MRI and CT scans as well as an ultrasound with lab tests based on blood samples have been conducted. The pelvic pain that comes with this condition can be treated with the help of pain relievers like ibuprofen and aspirin.

TREATMENT-

Medical Treated of Endometriosis-

  • Oral contraceptives, progesterone, danazol
  • GnRH agonist with add-back
  • Alternating GnRH agonist and OCs
  • Aromatase inhibitors
  • NSAID

Surgical Treatment-

The surgical management of endometriosis involves careful consideration of the indications for surgery, surgical techniques, surgeon experience, preoperative evaluation and ancillary techniques.

Surgery may be either 'conservative' or 'definitive'. Conservative surgical management of endometriosis has the goal of restoring normal anatomy and relieving pain. This approach is most often applied to women of reproductive age who wish to conceive in the future or to avoid induction of menopause at an early age. It may involve:

  • direct ablation,
  • lysis, or excision of lesions,
  • interruption of nerve pathways,
  • removal of ovarian endometriomas,
  • excision of lesions invading adjacent organs (bowel, bladder, appendix, or ureter).

Definitive surgery involves bilateral oophorectomy to induce menopause and may include removal of the uterus and fallopian tubes and, ideally, excision of all visible endometriotic nodules and lesions. It should be considered in women who have significant pain and symptoms despite conservative treatment, do not desire future pregnancies, or are undergoing hysterectomy because of other pelvic conditions, such as menorrhagia or fibroids.

I am having multiple fibroadenoma in both breasts, which are very small. I had undergone surgery for fibroadenoma removal four times in the past approximately 6 years ago, which were bigger in size. I am having a doubt that" is this fibroadenoma will become cancerous tumor in the future and is there any diet restrictions to get it reduced. Can you please clarify my doubt.

Generally fibroadenomas do not turn cancerous. However, self examination on a monthly basis is recommended. In case you notice any change in their character or there is bloody discharge from nipple, general surgeon would examine and order usg and / or fnac besides other tests. Then depending on the results further action is planned. There is no need to remove all fibroadenomas,

Self Monitoring of Blood Glucose - SMBG Chart

MBBS, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Mumbai
Self Monitoring of Blood Glucose - SMBG Chart

Self-monitoring of blood glucose (smbg) is very crucial for those diabetics who are on insulin or on certain oral anti-diabetic drugs which can cause hypoglycemia. To achieve best glycemic control it is essential to know how your daily blood glucose levels are fluctuating in an entire day.

It is easier for a diabetes specialist to adjust drugs or to adjust insulin dose if good smbg record is maintained by the patient.

Normally we check fasting and 2 hr post prandial blood sugar levels in the lab for routine follow-up. There is a bright chance of sugar excursions in the other post meal readings which get unnoticed. Even in case of hba1c or glycated hemoglobin test we get an average result of blood glucose of last 3 months.

In practice, I have seen several patients who had to fast and post prandial blood glucose lab tests in the normal range but hba1c levels below 7 is not achieved because they might have high blood sugars in other post meals which have got unnoticed.

To achieve the best blood glycemic control it is important to control blood sugar levels within normal limits during the entire day and not just fasting or post breakfast levels.

Interpretation of smbg chart:

In the above image of smbg chart, I have mentioned 7 point charting system where you can fill your blood glucometer readings which you take on several spots in an entire day.

Seven points includes:


    Fasting or before breakfast reading
    2 hrs after breakfast
    Before lunch
    2 hrs after lunch
    Before dinner
    2 hrs after dinner or bedtime
    At mid night 3.00 am


This seven point smbg charting approximately covers entire day glucose fluctuations to some extent (of course not as accurate as cgms).

I have also mentioned a comment column in the above smbg chart where you can note down change in food or change in insulin dose or any other changes that you have made which probably caused unusual readings like for example if hypoglycemia occurs at before lunch reading and you have skipped breakfast or had very little snack at breakfast you can mention that.

You do not need to check daily all the 7 points, you can check any one or 2 points randomly depending upon your sugar control.

More uncontrolled blood sugars require more frequent smbg glucometer monitoring.

Monitoring of blood glucose at home in case of diabetic pregnancy or gestational diabetes is also important where frequent monitoring and smbg charting of glucometer readings helps a lot to the patient.

I hope this article will help you to control your blood sugar levels more efficiently.

If you find that some of the post-meal or pre-meal readings are high or low, please consult your diabetologist with smbg chart to adjust your medication or insulin dosage.

If you like my article please share it with your friends and family.

Awareness is prevention!

Hello, You are unlikely to experience any bleeding because of methotrexate injection. Follow up with your gynecologist as ectopic pregnancy needs to be examined closely.
