Hello lybrate user- Ayurvedic concept of pcod (poly cystic ovarian disease) is somewhat different than modern concept, it generally occurs due to irregular food and daily habits done specially at the time of menstrual bleeding period. Pcod effect the ovulation process thus makes it difficult for the female to conceive and get pregnant. Some general tips to avoid pcod are- a) Avoid spicy food fast food during the bleeding and take fresh Indian food. B) Use wet sponging instead of taking bath on those days. C) Avoid running, skipping and other exercises on those days. D) Use Hyponidd tablet twice daily with water ten days before menses.

Emergency pill should not be taken routinely as it disrupts the hormonal cycle, may be delaying it or putting a total stop which will lead to difficulty in conceiving in future.

Hello, Shilajit is not associated with any serious side effects. In cases where someone takes iron supplements along with shilajit, it could lead to building up of an excess iron in the blood, as Shilajit contains a pretty high amount of iron. In very rare cases, it could aggravate or lower the blood pressure. But apart from those three cases, Shilajit is perfectly safe even in higher than normal quantities. Be sure you’re getting the right stuff. It’s always a good idea to listen to your body and stop giving Shilajit, if you notice symptoms of an allergic reaction like nausea, dizziness, increased heart rate and itchiness etc. Also, if a very high dose is given, it may lead to uric acid levels which in turn can lead to higher bile levels resulting in more problems. So it’s always best to talk to your physician before taking any such supplements.

Why Can't You Reach an Orgasm?

Sexologist, Ahmednagar
Why Can't You Reach an Orgasm?

If you are having chronic and persistent trouble in reaching the summit if the bliss during love making, then the problem may have less to do with the quality of your sex life or the level of attraction that you feel towards your partner. You may be suffering from a condition known as Orgasmic Dysfunction. Yes, this actually is a real condition with a real name for it, in medical terms! Let us find out more about this ailment.

What does it mean?

Orgasmic Dysfunction is the term used for people who have difficulty in reaching an orgasm despite plenty of arousal, lubrication and even sexual stimulation. An orgasm is usually characterised by an intense feeling of release that one feels after passing through excitement, stimulation and peak, in the process of having sex. When this release does not take place, there are chances that you may be suffering from orgasmic dysfunction. Men and women can both suffer from this problem.

Causes: There are a number of causes for this ailment. To begin with, one can suffer from this condition due to the advancement of age. Also, other medical conditions that are on the chronic side may have a bearing on your sex life, which may also determine whether or not you are able to enjoy an orgasm. Further, if a woman has been through gynaecology related procedures and surgeries, like a hysterectomy, she may experience this ailment. Not being able to reach an orgasm could also be a side effect of various kinds of medication like anti-depressants which make use of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). Also, anxiety, stress and related factors can lead to this condition.

Types of orgasmic dysfunction: There are several types of this disorder including primary anorgasmia (for someone who has never experienced an orgasm), secondary anorgasmia (where having an orgasm is a difficult task), situational anorgasmia (where one can only orgasm with certain types of sexual activities like masturbation or oral sex), and finally, general anorgasmia (complete inability to achieve an orgasm even after ample stimulation).

Diagnosis: The diagnosis of the issue will usually be carried out by the gynaecologist or sexologist who will take your sexual history and conduct a physical examination.

Treatment: There are varied forms of treatment that come into play for problems such as this one. One of them includes therapy and couples counselling, while treatment for underlying ailments may also be carried out. Greater clitoral stimulation may also be required in such a condition. In severe cases, the doctor may have to conduct oestrogen hormone therapy. Relationship problems can also trigger such conditions and persistent symptoms must be checked by a medical practitioner.

Myomectomy and How it Can Cure Ovarian Fibroids

MICOG, MS, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Myomectomy and How it Can Cure Ovarian Fibroids

Fibroids are non-cancerous growth that develop in the uterus in varying sizes. Fibroids do not usually show symptoms, but if they are large they may cause severe pain in the abdomen, heavy menstrual bleeding, bloating, infertility or complications during pregnancy. Several factors may lead to the formation of fibroids, including hormones, family history, and pregnancy.

What is myomectomy?

Myomectomy is the surgical procedure which is used for removing fibroids from the uterus. It is a safe method that allows women to become pregnant in future. Gonadotropin-releasing hormone analogue therapy, performed before myomectomy helps in lowering the estrogen level and also controls anemia by stopping uterine bleeding. The different surgical methods for myomectomy include:

  • Hysteroscopy, involving the insertion of a lighted viewing instrument into the uterus
  • Laparoscopy, involving the insertion of a lighted viewing instrument and one or more incisions in the abdomen
  • Laparotomy, involving a larger incision made in the abdomen

Why is the surgery performed?

Myomectomy treats fibroids while preserving the uterus. It is a viable option for those who have:

  • Anemia which cannot be controlled with medicines
  • Pain which cannot be tackled with medicines
  • A fibroid that can cause infertility or increases the risk of miscarriages

How well does it work?

  • Pregnancy: myomectomy is the only treatment for treating fibroids that improve your chances of having a baby. The method is effective for treating submucosal fibroid. A cesarean section is required for delivery after performing a myomectomy.
  • Recurrence: recurrence of fibroids after myomectomy is really low. It is possible in rare cases, depending on what the original fibroid problem was. Large and numerous fibroids have a greater risk of recurrence.

Hello Doctor I am 32 years old male and my wife is 31 years old we are blessed with an Angel who is now 5. Years old. My wife had an absolute normal delivery and now we are planning for a second child from the past 2 months but not getting positive result. I know this is not a big period for trying but I don't want to waste my time in hit trail method I am taking folic acid tablet from the past 10 days. I heard of treatment named IUI which is safer and quicker in results also. I live in Faridabad (NCR) and want to know if opting IUI is a good option and about its cost and pros. And cons. I appreciate your prompt reply on this.

Yes iui is absolutely safe procedure, and you can go for it if you don't want to wait to conceive naturally. It will cost you around 6000 without medication, as use of medicine depends from person to person according to the finding and cause. It has not side effects as its close to natural conceiving, in this process semen is washed and directly inseminated into partner's uterus, no surgery and anesthesia is required.

at 46 and with no proper menstrual cycles, it is very difficult to conceive. One of the reason is menopause appears to be nearing. In such a situation with hypothyroidism and diabetes it is very unlikely to succeed in having pregnancy.

I have lots of pain in my period time Sometime I'm suffering from fever. And I have a tumor in my breast (lymph nodes category 2 according to my mammography report) Size of tumor is 3 c. M. What should I do?

PGDMLS, PGDHHM, LLB, PhD Surgery, MS - General Surgery

Generally this is due to a condition called fibroadenosis or a fibroadenoma or something more serious. Fibroadenosis appears to be the most likely diagnosis in your case. This is a harmless condition and is related to hormonal changes. It is usually more, a few days before the start of monthly menstrual period and becomes less after the periods. You might be able to feel a lump on catching with all the fingers of your hand but no lump when you try to feel it with the flat surface of the fingers / hand. Breast support with a tight fitting bra might give some relief. Medication can be of some help but that should be taken only after a physical examination by a general surgeon. Cancerous tumors are generally painless. General surgeon would advice a biopsy / fnac if he has any suspicion of cancer.

I had my first IUI failed this month and AF arrived I was very depressed. Now heading towards second IUI hoping to get BFP. My first IUI was with clomid and injectable (HMG) and trigger shot (HCG). And there were 4 follicles of good size 20 mm. After the trigger egg rupture was late almost after 48 hours and IUI was done at 60th hour. My gums could see the ruptured follicle and also the fluid after rupture was seen on ultrasound then only she headed to IUI. She later kept me on progesterone supportive for 14 days. Was the timing an issue? What was wrong in this first try which resulted in failure? Can anyone succeeded who can share the tips which helped them to bring success to IUI.

IUi has to be done only after confirming that your tubes are patent and not blocked .Secondly the procedure has to be repeated for 3 to 4 cycles .if there is no sucess,.The sample has to be inseminated within one and a half hour from the time of collection.You can also have intercourse fo 2 days following iui to increase the probability of pregnancy'

Water melon-it contains more than 80% water thus satisfying your thirst and helps you hydrated.

Fruits increase consumption of fruits like berried and melons

Mangoes –it’s loaded with beta carotene, vitamins c and fibers but diabetics be conscious.

Cucumber- is 20% more cooler than other vegetables

Vegetable salads- it’s the excellent summer choice .don’t load them with fatty dressings like cream, mayonnaise etc. keep the dressing to its minimum. Use lemons, vinegar and seasoning

Include red oranges and yellow vegetable like pumpkin squash .peppers as they are loaded with vitamin A&C & anti- Occident.

Cold soup –start your meals with them like chilled cucumber or tomato soup

Low fat drinks –fresh fruit juices, butter milk, lemon water, and raw mango juices are excellent for the seasons.

Low calories fruits based desserts-low fat milk custard with fresh fruits, fruit smothers.

Whole grain and cereals0avoid refined once.

Bean and legumes- instead of animal protein concentrate on plant protein in summer as they are low in calories, cholesterol and saturated fat.

Fried foods-avoid them as they increase the thermal effect of your system and causes discomfort

Water- last but not the least nothing can be as satisfying and refreshing as a glass 0f water .always keep your self-hydrated.
