She is feeling too much pain during her periods. Tell me the reason and medicine to cure this.

She is feeling too much pain during her periods. Tell me the reason and medicine to cure this.
Painful periods can be due to a number of causes. These include ovarian cysts, uterine tumours, endometriosis, pelvic infection. However most commonly they are related to prostaglandin imbalance specially in younger women. I would advice Drotin-M tablet 1 tab thrice daily after food during periods and see if that makes a difference.If not she needs a transvaginal USG done

I'm 38 years old and have a problem of heavy bleeding during periods, cycle ranging from 22-25 days, and each period lasting 6-7 days. Ultrasound reports are normal and no problem of thyroid. Weight is normal and I exercise regularly. I have been taking Ashokarishta since 4 months. Please advise whether to stop it during periods or take it during periods as well. Also any additional medicine that I can try?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Kolkata
Can't comment about Ashokarishta. You may try Tab Deviry 10 mg daily after dinner x 10 days, from 16th day of your bleeding. Take Tab Pause-MF 1 tab 4 times daily after meals if bleeding is still heavy. There are other ways to treat, if this does not help.

Hey lybrate-user nothing to worry in summers some people get nasal bleeds. Just that apply ice packs over the nose. When bleeding occurs do not lie down instead sit lean forwards pinch your nose for 3-4 min. Bleeding shall stop than apply cold compression over the nose.

Risk Factors Of Testicular Cancer

MBBS, D.N.B. (General Surgery), D.N.B. (Genito Urinary Surgery)
Urologist, Mumbai

Here are a few things you should know about Testicular Cancer (TC): 

  1. Age: The commonest affected age group is 20-45 years with germ cell tumours. Half of all cases occur in men less than 35 years. Non-seminomatous germ cell tumours (NSGCT) are more common at ages 20-35, while seminoma is more common at age 35-45 years. Rarely, infants and boys below 10 years develop yolk sac tumours and 50% men above 60 years with TC have lymphoma.
  2. Race: White Caucasian people living in Europe and the US have the highest risk. Whites are three times more likely to develop TC than blacks in the US. With the exception of the New Zealand Maoris, TC is rare in non-Caucasian races.
  3. Previous TC: Confers a 12-fold increased risk of metachronous TC. Bilateral TC occurs in 1-2% of cases.
  4. Cryptorchidism: 5-10% of TC patients have a history of cryptorchidism. Ultrastructural changes are present in these testes by age 3 years, although earlier orchidopexy does not completely eliminate the risk of developing TC. According to a large Swedish study, cryptorchidism is associated with a two-fold increased risk of TC in men who underwent orchiopexy less than 13 year, but risk is increased 5-fold in men who underwent orchiopexy aged above13 years. A meta-analysis showed risk of contralateral TC almost doubles while ipsilateral TC risk is increased 6-fold in men with unilateral cryptorchidism.
  5. Intratubular germ cell neoplasia (testicular intraepithelial neoplasia, TIN): Synonymous with carcinoma in situ, although the disease arises from malignant change in spermatogonia; 50% of cases develop invasive germ cell TC within 5 years. The population incidence is 0.8%. Risk factors include cryptorchidism, extragonadal germ cell tumour, atrophic contralateral testis, 45XO karyotype, Klinefelter's syndrome, previous or contralateral TC (5%), and infertility.
  6. Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV): Patients develop seminoma 35% more frequently than expected. Genetic factors: appear to play a role, given that first-degree relatives are at higher risk by 4-9-fold, but a defined familial inheritance pattern is not apparent.
  7. Maternal oestrogen exposure: At higher than usual levels during pregnancy appears to increase risk of cryptorchidism, urethral anomalies, and TC in male offspring.

Trauma and viral-induced atrophy have not been convincingly implicated as risk factors for TC.

My wife, aged 62 years, has some sort of burning sensation in her vagina, which increases at night, specially after urinating. This problem is continuing for the last three-four years with varying degree of intensity. About three years ago, she underwent a minor operation for this problem, after which she got some relief for about six months. But this problem was not completely solved.

Hello. Can we do both side sex I mean at vagina and ass I had listen that there is some disadvantage of doing sex in ass do you people think so.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Anal sex is an unnatural way of intercourse and definitely carries the risk of infections, injuries and tears to anal canal causing fissures etc. anal sex even if consented by both partners is a perversion. Vaginal sex is the natural way of having penetrative sex.
