Periods ke bad Infection ho gya hai Chaale type to please Suggest me what Should I take?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
If the discharge is causing itching or fowl smell then it is some kind of infection, which should be treated immediately. If there is no itching or fowl smell then it has to be physiological leukorrhoea, which occurs because of hormonal imbalance. Yellow or white discharge suggests that you r suffering from vaginal infection. You should insert clingen pessary every night for 3 days and take fas-3 kit. This kit should also be given to your husband and use condoms for 7 days. Kit is self explanatory as when to take is written on the back of kit and it is a single day course.

Hi 3-4 mahino Ke pregnancy me safed pani ka nikalna kya ye koi presani h ya fir infection. Please detail me mujhe btae.
Normal vaginal discharge is called leucorrhoea. It's a mild or musky-smelling milky fluid that keeps your vagina clean. It comes from your cervix, which is the neck of your uterus (womb). You probably get more when you're pregnant because more blood is flowing to the area.

Hi sir/ mam I am 24 years girl, I have less boobs I want to improve my breast size, so tell me the tips.

DGO, MBBS
Sexologist,
Small breasts may be due to hormonal imbalance, genetic, poor nutrition, thyroid hormone problem. Take diet containing fats and soya products. Massage breast from below upwards and from side inwards using some coconut oil. Change your posture by standing straight and pushing your chest forward will make your breasts look bigger. Exercising the muscles beneath your breasts will make them appear more rounded, it can be done by push-ups done daily for few times increasing gradually. In case you want a medicine suggestion from me now then ask at private question.

Spondyloarthritis

MD(Am)
General Physician, Secunderabad
Spondyloarthritis

Spondyloarthritis (also known as spondyloarthropathy) is the term which describes the connective tissue diseases. It is the group of inflammatory diseases, including arthritis of the peripheral joints and spine (sacroiliitis or spondylitis); including the area where ligaments and tendons attach to bones (enthesitis or enthesopathy). These diseases cause pain or stiffness in the leg or arm joints, spine, ligaments and tendons become inflamed. Skin rashes, eye, and intestinal problems may also be able to occur.

Epidemiology

  • Spondyloarthritis is a pathology that specifically strikes young people. The symptoms most frequently start before the age of 45. It affects more males than females.
  • Predisposition to spondyloarthritis, especially spa, is determined largely by genetic factors.
  • The incidence rate is higher in populations with a higher prevalence of hla-b27.
  • Psoriatic skin lesions and colitis due to inflammatory bowel disease (ibd) have been considered as both basic, subtype-defining entities with their own genetic background (distinct from hla-b27 genotype), and as manifestations of spondyloarthritis.
  • There is a strong need to diagnose patients with spa in an earlier stage; currently, there is a delay of 5–10 years between onset of the first symptoms and diagnosis.

Types

There are five types of spondyloarthritis

Ankylosing spondylitis or bechterew disease: it is the type of arthritis that affects the spine. Symptoms include pain and stiffness in the lower back and in the neck. Spine bones fuse together and it will become rigid spine and it leads to stoope over posture.

Psoriatic arthritis: psoriatic arthritis is the form of arthritis that affects the people who have psoriasis. Most people diagnosed with psoriasis and later diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis. It may affect any part of the body such as fingertips and spine. The main symptoms are joint pain, stiffness, and swelling.

Psoriatic arthritis

Reactive arthritis: it occurs due to the infection by certain bacteria. Often the bacteria’s from genitals (chlamydia trachomatis) or bowel (campylobacter, salmonella, shigella, and yersinia). It usually targets your knees and joints of ankles or feet.

Reactive arthritis

Undifferentiated arthritis: undifferentiated inflammatory arthritis does not conform to any of the recognized inflammatory arthritis types. It may include monoarthritis of a single joint; oligoarthritis, which is usually when four or fewer joints are involved; or polyarthritis, which usually involves many small joints.

Risk factors

Risk factors may be higher due to following reasons:

  • Family member having the gene which causes spondyloarthritis
  • Positive results for the hla-b27 gene
  • Recurring bacterial infection in your gut
  • Have other inflammatory conditions such as psoriasis or inflammatory bowel disease

Causes

  • The main cause is not known, but researchers pointed out that the hereditary genetics playing an important role in this disease. Since this disease occurs often in family members of patients who have spondyloarthritis.
  • Many genes cause it. Up to 30 genes have been found. But the major gene that causes spondyloarthritis is hla-b27.
  • Bacterial infections can also cause reactive spondyloarthritis known to be triggered by a bacteria chlamydia or food borne infections.

Symptoms and complications of spondyloarthritis

The first and major symptoms of all types of spondyloarthritis are severe low back pain, swelling of arms, stiffness, and fatigue. The different types of spondyloarthritis can be manifested by the following signs and symptoms.

  • Alternative or unilateral buttock pain
  • Arthritis in small joints
  • Arthritis in large joints such as knee joint, ankle joint and elbow joint (peripheral arthritis)
  • Numbness and tingling sensation in arms and legs
  • Spinal fusion may occur in ankylosing spondylitis
  • Inflammation at the interfaces between bone and tendon or ligament of limbs (enthesitis)
  • Inflammation of intestine, urinary tract and aortic heart valves. These can lead to spinal joints inflammation.
  • Inflammation of joints in pelvis and spine (sacroiliitis)
  • Enteropathic arthritis shows symptoms such as diarrhea and abdominal pain
  • Digestive problems
  • Skin disease like psoriasis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Redness of eye (iritis)
  • Swollen fingers and
  • Pain in the heels cause difficult to walk, stand even for small duration

Diagnosis and testing

First a doctor may ask for patient’s medical history, physical exam and may suspects for symptoms of spondyloarthritis. To confirm doctor may perform the following diagnosis and tests.

  • X-rays: x-ray images shows the change of the sacroiliac joints in the pelvis and fusion of spine. If these changes not observed, but symptoms shows spondyloarthritis doctor will suggest mri scan. Mri shows these changes more promptly than the x-ray.
  • Mri scans: it can show a very clear image of enthesitis and also the changes of sacroiliac joints.
  • Ct scans: ct also used for the imaging of bone joints.
  • Hla-b27: most patients with spondyloarthritis have hla-b27 gene, but some people don’t have this gene. So it is necessary to go for a hla-b27 test if the symptoms suspects spondyloarthritis.
  • Complete blood count (cbc): cbc can be useful to find the inflammation.
  • Musculoskeletal ultrasound scanning: ultrasound imaging uses sound waves to produce the images of inflammatory conditions of muscles, ligaments, and tendons.
  • Dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (dexa) scans: used for measuring the bone mineral density usually the bones of the lower spine and hips. Bone loss is measured through this technique.

Treatment of spondyloarthritis.

  • There is no way to cure this disease condition, but there are treatments to counterparts the symptoms.
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs: certain nsaid’s like naproxen, ibuprofen, meloxicam, or indomethacin are prescribed by doctors to relief from the pain due to symptoms.
  • Corticosteroid medication: inflammation around the tendons and in the joints can be overcome by taking some corticosteroid drugs. This helps to reduce the swelling in the joints.
  • Antibiotics: antibiotics can be used in the case of reactive spondyloarthritis in which bacteria cause the major problems.
  • Disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (dmard’s): sulfasalazine (azulfidine) and methotrexate are the best dmard’s to be used for the joint damages in limbs affected by arthritis.
  • Tumor necrosis alpha (tnf-alpha) blockers: fda approved tnab are adalimumab (humira), adalimumab-atto (amjevita), a biosimilar to humira, certolizumab pegol (cimzia), etanercept (enbrel), etanercept-szzs (ereizi), a biosimilar to enbrel, golimumab (simponi), infliximab (remicade), infliximab-dyyb (inflectra), a biosimilar to remicade, and secukinimab (cosentyx). These are biosimilars used to treat arthritis in spine joints.
  • Surgery: patients with over inflammation of pelvis joints needs hip replacement. In the case of heavy damage in the cartilage of joints needs surgery to repair. In some rare cases, spinal surgery also needed.

Prevention and control measures

  • Prevention from spondyloarthritis needed some lifestyle changes as follows.
  • Quit smoking: smoking speeds up the spinal fusion in addition to other bad health effects.
  • Follow good posture: practicing a proper sitting and posture makes your spine to escape from growing into slumped-over position and strain.
  • Daily physical exercise: frequent home exercise and physiotherapy is essential to reduce the stiffening of spine and other joint problems. It also helps to have your heart healthy.
  • Good diet: follow the diets that are rich in calcium. Dairy products are preferred foe calcium rich foods.

Hi lybrate-user My suggestion is that you should wait till you cross at least 6 weeks after your last periods. Once this period is over then you must go for scan to confirm the pregnancy status. B hcg evaluations by self are sometimes misleading as they need to be co related with your clinical parameters. Otherwise also, the confirmation of baby on imaging is most definite way of confirming pregnancy.

Kinder on your calorie counts without compromising on your moments of ecstasy, sex toys bring an extra dose of delight to your bedroom. Effective for either sex, there are multiple options that you may surf through and cull out the best for your significant other.

For her:

  1. Magic Wand Rechargeable: For an orgasm on the go, this is the perfect choice. This does not tether you to the wall, but instead enables you to navigate around freely. The vibrations you feel are not too stark, but just the right degree and for further stimulation, you may attach the removable head. There is an additional plug in option in case the device runs out of charge. 
  2. Womanizer: This imparts arguably the best oral stimulation that you could have asked for. Creating a seal around your clitoris, this device gently sucks and massages you to give you a feeling that might just surpass the real standards.

The flowery design and the crafty curves feel brilliant inside your vagina. It is nine inch long and thus leaves you with no scope of complaint regarding the length. 

For him:

  1. Male Masturbators: Usually for self stimulation, men themselves come 'handy'. But why settle for the simple when with these sleeves, you can get the feel of the real contours and the ridges? These male masturbators sometimes act as girth enhancers while intensifying your hard-on. 
  2. Prostate Massager: Made of firm plastic material, these slender prostate massagers are great for anal stimulation. Designed to titillate your G spot, this can bring some of the most exhilarating sensations.

I am an engineering student in VIT university. My basic problem is I am on more weight than it has to be for my height. I can reduce it by doing exercises or anything but the problem is I am thin on the upper part and fatty on the bottom. I hope you got me. Also my hip was somewhat wide but that was from my mother genes. So with this I looked like very thin feature from face, neck,hands, abdomen and from there it looks like an unmatched one. Is there any solution that I could get out of this because it does not look good when I wear series for any functions. Please do tell me.
