Hello lybrate-user, I can understand your fear and anxiety related to your status, may be this new doctor wanted to cross check just to clarify things, so do not be so anxious about your pregnancy, as you know that previous scan were absolutely fine, continue your supplements and other medicine recommended by your obstetrician. And try some deep breathing exercise to release your anxiety and stress. Keep yourself happy, and your baby will start growing and developing in healthy way. You can listen good soothing instrumental music too, as after 24 weeks baby started responding to outer sounds. Take care Thank you.

No chance of pregnancy after period upto 8-10 th day, because it's safe period, don't worry, take urine pregnancy test at home with UPT kit available in medical, all the best, use condom every time.

MBBS, DGO (cal)
General Physician,
Appears you androgen (male hormones) level has increased which happens in PCOD. You consult your Gynaecologist, sooner the better. If you are married and having any child, you are in a better position. You need blood test and shall have to take medicine accordingly before your hair problem become big. If you are over weight, as is common in such cases, you need to reduce weight.

As you already had menses after sex, you can not be pregnant. Menses can get irregular for a month or so after taking the pill, but it will be corrected next month. No treatment is needed for you as menses gets delayed with hormonal changes or stress also.

Vaginal Dryness: One of the Most Common Female Sexual Health Problem

Vaginal Dryness: One of the Most Common Female Sexual Health Problem

During menopause, estrogen production slows and then stops. There are a number of changes, which occur in your body during this time. Periods become irregular and then stop. You may have hot flashes, mood swings, a deeper voice and an increase in facial hair. Vaginal dryness is another common symptom of menopause. It becomes even more common after menopause. Vaginal dryness also can occur at any age from a number of different causes. It may seem like just a minor irritation; however, it can be a major problem when it comes to your sex life. Here is everything you need to know about vaginal dryness:

What causes vaginal dryness in women
Even though menopause is the most common cause of vaginal dryness, it can happen at any age and there are various causes of vaginal dryness as well. Here they are;

  1. Childbirth and Breastfeeding: Childbirth as well as breastfeeding result in lower levels of estrogen and this can lead to vaginal dryness.
  2. Sjogrens Syndrome: This is an autoimmune disorder in which your immune system attacks the moisture producing cells in your body.
  3. Douching: Douching is a common practice done by women wherein, they wash their vagina using water and vinegar, knowing little that it can actually cause dryness.

Treatment
As mentioned earlier, vaginal dryness is caused by a lack of estrogen. Here are some of the ways that estrogen is supplied to your body;

  1. Vaginal Estrogen Ring: This is a ring inserted into your vagina, which releases a steady stream of estrogen into your vaginal tissues. It needs a replacement, generally after three months.
  2. Vaginal Estrogen Tablet: A special device called an applicator is used to insert an estrogen tablet into your vagina.
  3. Vaginal Estrogen Cream: This also needs to be inserted through an applicator. It will be applied daily for the first two weeks after which, it will be applied one to three times a week. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

It can be due to lack of progesterone in your body, as the gynaec has prescribed it. Usually, menses appear when progesterone level rises and then fall suddenly. So after the course is over, your menses will appear. If you have more queries, please ask.

Hye. No. If it's a part of a healthy diet, you can have sweet lime juice. (Unless you have a medical condition that calls for a restriction). Avoid juice with meals. Take it as a mid meal especially when feel low in energy levels. Avoid straining the juice. Do not add sugar to the juice, Prefer more of whole fruits.

Hi! Thanks for your query. There is a normal itching condition called Pruritic plaques and papules of pregnancy usually common in first pregnancy. You can apply plain coconut oil twice a day. The itching and rashes generally subside only after delivery. Avoid excessively oily spicy foods. You can consult on private chat with photographs of skin problem.
