We are couples and we are in a relationship from past 5-6 years. Few days ago we had sex. But unfortunately there was a contraceptive failure. She took unwanted 72 next day. But we are very afraid. Is there any chance of getting pregnancy even after taking medicine on time. If she conceives then what will be the safe time period for abortion.

Hi if you have taken emergency contraceptive on time then chances of pregnancy are minimal. If she misses her periods then pls get a urine pregnancy test done. Upt should be done after 7 days of missing period. Incase its positive then visit your gynaecologist at the earliest. Incase its negative. Repeat test after few days. Note: unwanted 72 may delay periods. Periods are often delayed due to stress (fear of pregnancy) if you have any doubts please contact me online.

Homoeopathic medicines cure PCOS permanently.Homeopathy believes that the human body has been perfectly enabled by nature to keep itself disease free. It is only when the immunity or its own internal vitality is deranged that the body becomes incapable of keeping itself disease free. Therefore Homeopathy tries to restore the balance of that vitality. Once the vitality regains its original balance, it is able to nurse itself back to health without any external aid. That is why homeopathic medicines are given in very minute doses

Ovarian Cysts - What Should You Know?

Ovarian Cysts - What Should You Know?

A cyst is a fluid-filled sac, which is very commonly seen in the ovaries. The ovaries are the egg-producing organs in a female, and given the fact that they have a number of follicles, cysts form very commonly. In fact, most women would have had cysts at some point in their lives. There are two types of cysts – functional and non-functional.

Functional: Each month, the ovaries produce follicles which then turn into an egg and may or may not fertilize. If not fertilized, they are lost along with the tissue during the menstrual cycle. These follicles can sometimes develop into cysts, and they are often painless, asymptomatic, and disappear on their own. The follicles also produce estrogen and progesterone after the egg is released. This follicle can accumulate fluid and develop into a cyst. This is known as corpus luteum cyst.

Non-functional: There are other cysts which develop within the ovaries which can be dermoid cysts, cystadenomas, or endometriomas. These are not related to the menstrual cycle, and so-called non-functional cysts.

Risk factors: While all females are prone to have cysts, the following may increase the likelihood of cyst formation.

Symptoms and Complications:

Most ovarian cysts are benign and disappear on their own. However, some cysts can continue to grow in size and then rupture. Some symptoms with multiple, large cysts would include severe bleeding, pelvic pain, and a constant bloated feeling. There could also be fever with vomiting. Imaging can show ovarian torsion (twisting) if the cysts are too many or large.

In addition, the woman can experience excessive hairiness, pain during sexual intercourse, weight gain, bleeding abnormalities ranging from spotting to excessive bleeding.

Treatment: Most ovarian cysts pass off on their own and do not create any harm. There are some though which can cause issues ranging from infertility to ovarian torsion to severe bleeding.
Diagnosis needs to be confirmed with a pelvic laparoscopy and scanning before planning for treatment. Laparoscopy can help not just in the identification of the cysts (if there are multiple) but also in their removal.

Most often, cysts can be watched over a period of time to see if they are growing in size or number. If they are not, then they may just be left in place. If they are increasing, however, then they need to be removed and monitored to see if there are any more growing cysts.

  1. Birth control pills may be used to prevent recurrence.
  2. Surgery may be required which can range from removal of a single ovary to the complete uterus, ovaries and fallopian tubes if there are many cysts.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

4 Causes Of Heel Pain!

Heels are weight bearing part of feet during standing, walking or running. Improper postures or foot wear can cause degeneration of heel and subsequent pain.

Causes for heel pain

1. Sprains: Improper exercise and improper footwear like high heels can put unnecessary stress on heels and cause pain. Avoid such conditions by using excellent quality heels and avoiding them as much as possible. Exercise should be done under expert guidance. 

2. Fractures: Stress or hairline fractures can occur even without trauma and cause pain. In such cases, you should immediately consult a doctor

3. Plantar fasciitis: A common cause for heel pain, the Plantar fascia at heel can cause severe early morning heel pain. It can be managed with exercises, PRP Injections. 

4. Arthritis: Gout, rheumatoid arthritis and other types of arthritis can affect ankle joint and cause heel pain. This can be managed with medications and exercises. In severe cases injections may be needed for treatment. 

Treatments available 

1. Change in shoes: Shoes play a key role in the development of heel pain. Avoid wearing heels for prolonged period and specially when walking long distances. 

2. Foot supports: There are specialized heel supports and wedges, which you can wear with the footwear. These supports help redistribute weight from the problem areas and uniformly distribute it among the other parts of the foot. Heel cups are also another form of supports you could try. 

3. Pain relief medications: Over the counter analgesics like Ibuprofen or Paracetamol can help in reducing acute episodes of pain. Self - medication for prolonged periods should be avoided. 

4. Ice packs: Application of ice packs decrease pain and stiffness of heel. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a pain management specialist.

Beta thalassaemia major makes it more likely that you will have complications during your pregnancy. Your organs, which are already under strain, will have the extra demands of growing a baby. Your transfusion and medication needs will probably change as your pregnancy progresses. But if you take 5mg of folic acid daily throughout your pregnancy your child won't be affected. This is because thalassaemia may increase the risk of your baby developing a neural tube defect, such as spina bifida. Taking a high dose of folic acid daily reduces this risk.
