I've got abnormal vaginal bleeding since last 3 days. Though it is very less in amount without any pain. I also want to mention here that my periods was just over last week. I am married and had few normal intercourses after that. But I am worried about this abnormal bleeding. Please tell me why it is happening.

Once a menstrual bleeding had finished, very few women bleed again till next menses. But in some slight bleeding may occur at ovulation time. This is perhaps what you are experiencing. But without a thorough examination, one will not be able to rule out other causes, like cervical erosion, polyp or infection or even a vaginal tear. So best to go and see a gynecologist.

Usually some hints can be obtained at scan done at 11-14 weeks (not at 9 weeks) but it needs confirmation by further tests.

Hi, abdominal binder is definitely not a perfect solution of" pregnancy pouch. Breast feeding, diet control & exercise has major role to get back near normal shape. Breast feeding burn extra calories and also trigger muscular contractraction. Making it a workout for the whole body. Exercise has a good option to reduce belly but it must be with doctor's consent & under expert supervision in post caesarean cases. Control diet means to choose proper diet according to individual body needs diet must be rich in protein & fiber but low in fat and calories. But don't go on a severe diet as it will affect breast feeding and will put the body in starvation mode so will ultimately affect the health of baby and mother both. So don't panic and go slow and take care of health.

Low carbohydrate , walk and exercise for 45 minutes to one hour should be sufficient to cut down your body but don't expect result in few day, it takes few months to lower body weight and your triglycerides. What is your exact TSH level. If it is normal then you are not having hypothyroidism but for pregnancy to occur and then to grow , TSH value lower than otherwise normal is required . For PCOS get your other hormones I.e FSH, LH, Prolactin, Testosterone tested

Dear user. FERTILE PHASE is the phase of a female's menstrual cycle when an egg (ovule) is released from the ovaries. In humans, ovulation occurs about midway through the menstrual cycle, after the follicular phase. The few days surrounding ovulation (from approximately days 10 to 18 of a 28 day cycle), constitute the most fertile phase. So if you have ejaculatory sexual inter course from day 10 from the first day of period and to day 20, the chances of pregnancy are much more. There are many determinants of pregnancy. You should be sexually matured. Your partner should be sexually matured. The period of your partner should be in the fertile stage. Her egg and your sperm cells should healthy enough. Then her uterus should be capable to get conceived. If all these were satisfied, the pregnancy could be a result. Take care.

Types of Birth Control Contraceptive Methods

DGO, MBBS

Here are some tips on types of contraceptive methods

Hi I’m Dr. Soni Anand. I’m a consultant obstetrician-gynecologist and infertility expert. This is a very controversial topic and everyone wants to use something but they don’t know what to use, how to use and for how long to use and whether it is suitable for him and his partner, or not. There are basically 4 modalities of Contraception:

(a) Intra-Urine contraception device also known as Copper T, Multi load, Mirena etc. I think this is the most comfortable for the patient and it is usually applied on the 4th or 5th day of periods and if properly applied, there is no problem in the continuation of these devices. Usually in few patients you can have periods for a cycle or two but then it settles down. We have medication for that and second thing- you have to get a checkup, every 4-5 month intervals at your doctor, and I think this is the best method because it does not require every day motivation and has no hormonal side effects.

(b) Pills or OC Pills, there is a common myth that it causes weight gain but now a days like everything, the Pill has also evolved and now we have ultra-low dosage pills and they get the desired effect and prevents pregnancy but does not have a long term side effect which existed when there were high doses. And you have to start the pill on Day 1 and continue it for 21 days and then there is a pill free period where you’ll have your periods and then can again restart from Day 1 and it can be used under medical supervision as long as you want.

(c) Condoms, it is not a very reliable method because it is partner dependent and can be used as a spacing method if they are willing.

(d) The terminal method of contraception, i.e. the family planning surgery or tuber ligation. It is suggested to those patients who have completed their families and can opt for this permanent method.
My message to my viewers is that contraception is a confusing matter and if you can’t decide yourself, consult a doctor.

If you want to consult me, you can reach me through Lybrate. Either by a text or through telephone or you can book a physical appointment.

Does a Bigger Brain Make You Smarter When It Comes To Intelligence?

DM - Neurology, MD - General Medicine, MBBS
Neurologist, Chennai
Does a Bigger Brain Make You Smarter When It Comes To Intelligence?

When it comes to the brain and the IQ, is bigger the better? Does size really matter? Is there really a connection between the size of your brain and intelligence? With the help of findings by neurologists 
and scientists, we seek to find out!

  1. Ailments and the Brain: Scientists have found that children with autism have a brain that has grown in a disproportionate manner in the very first year of their life. This prevents the child from making connections with normal behaviour. On the other hand, children and adolescents who suffer from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or ADHD have shown signs of having a much smaller brain size. Many scientists have shown that the size of the brain shrinks as we age, and this does not have any visible effect on our cognitive abilities.
  2. It's all Relative: The size of the brain does not really have a bearing on the way a person's cognition gets shaped. Even large mammals like elephants and whales are finally hunted and tamed by humans who have smaller brains in comparison. The brain is made up of billions of neurons which need to function properly. It may be seen that scientists consider the brain mass in relation with the rest of the body so as to speculate about the cognitive abilities of the person. Why is this required? Large animals need a well functioning and proportionate brain size to control and run their organs with proper cognition for satisfactory results, which is what we humans seem to have done.
  3. Neanderthal Brains: Historically, the earliest man or the Neanderthals are said to have had larger brains than we do. These people are believed to have brains that are at least 10% larger than the brains that we have in our modern times. The shape of their brain was different too. They were also heavily muscled people which had a bearing on the size and shape of the brain and bodies as well as the lean tissue within the brain. They also survived very successfully for a period of over 200,000 years, which obviously points to some form of elevated cognition, as per many scientists.
  4. Animals: While animals with small brains like lizards and reptiles do not perform too well on IQ tests, the animals with bigger brains like elephants and dolphins perform much better. But the medium sized brains of monkeys, lemurs and other animals are said to perform in the best manner. The correlation between the body size and the brain does not seem to hold good here, as per various researches.

So the verdict as per medical science and research stands divided!

A-around 15% of pregnancies gets miscarried, that is nature's rule. You should avoid next pregnancy for 6 months from the last abortion. Chances of repeat abortion or pretem delivery increases if one becomes pregnant within 6 months of miscarriage. Also if abortion/ miscarriage was caused by any viral infection, then it will get cured automatically within 3 months time. Use contraception for 6 months. Best one to use are oral contraceptive pills. No special treatment or tests are needed if you had only one miscarriage or spontaneous abortion.

Two lines which appear within 5 minutes of adding urine to the kit indicate a pregnancy. These can be light due to a very early pregnancy. Kindly see a gynaecologist for further pregnancy care.

Considering episiotomy they must have asked you same but it's for 1 week only as all suture materials dissolve in 7-10days. Try physiotherapy and as madam said exercises. It should help you. All the Best!
