I was on novelon 21 day pill pack from june missed second last pill of the pack doubled up last day. Took a break of 6 days on which I had my menses. Started new pack on 8th july had protected intercourse for the first time on 9th july. Bt the same condom has been used thrice. Then I had very protected intercourse on 14th then missed the pill for the first time in july on 21st july but doubled on 22nd july. I had a light bleeding on 22nd july morning. My pill pack ended on 28th july and my period started on 1 continued upto 6th aug. Hpt with first morning urine on 4,5,6,7,8 weeks all negative. My period date was 1st aug as it did not occur till 9th. I did a serum beta hcg test comes out to be negative hcg level was 0.11.last intercourse was on 14th july no intercourse after that. Usg report shows bulky uterus with normal myometrial echo texture, cervix normal no collection at POD, no SOL seen. No collection at endometrial cavity. Ovaries bulky with tiny follicles arranged peripherally. Doctor prescribed deviry 2 tabs for 5 days. After taking 2 doses I had my periods yesterday. And bleeding is heavy and red with thin structure. Will I continue with the pills further? Not feeling well in the pills feeling nauseated. What causes this bleeding. Is it normal period or breakthrough bleeding? Can I be pregnant. Even if I did not have any intercourse after 14th july and have my withdrawal bleed on 1st aug. Not taking pills since aug. Can I be pregnant? Can serum beta be wrong? Why the bleed is heavy after taking 2 doses of deviry.

Tips and Treatments for PCOD
I’m Dr. K.D. Nayyar Infertility Specialist and the Senior Consultant and Head of Department at Akanksha IVF Centre.
One of the most common causes present in these days is Polycystic Ovarian Disease which is prevalent in almost 8 to 10 percent of the population.
Polycystic Ovarian Disease is affecting whole spectrum of women right from puberty till middle ages even post menstrual stage. And younger women, they are more worried about their menstrual disturbances, ovulation problem, the infertility problem, the sexual health and the older women are more worried about their metabolic problems, the pregnancy complications, and the chances of developing type-2 diabetes, the cardiovascular risk and the quality of life.
Whenever you have a woman with polycystic ovarian disease, you need a multi specialist input like, you need to have a gynaecologist, you do need to have a endocrinologist, a nutrition specialist, a psychologist, ultra-sonographer, all of them can combine and give their inputs in looking after these women.
The younger woman is too much worried about the acne, the excessive hair. They are advised to avoid certain types of food which can increase their sugar like, chocolates, which is a common thing among the younger age group, and they are advised to eat lot of green vegetables, tomatoes and meat products. The idea is they should not gain too much of weight. A reduction of 5 percent of the weight, help their menstrual cycle and ovulation.
Older age group who are looking for infertility treatment, they can start with simple oral medication, which has been there for a long time and if they don’t respond with this oral medication, they can either go for indictable colonography and if that doesn’t help they may go for laparoscopic ovarian drilling and there are lot of achievement available in your market these days. One has to choose the right type of achievement, it can be, by forming N- Acetyl Cysteine and it can be Dexamethasone it can be the only cases of hyperchlonaemia. And there are other lot of antioxidants available in the market but one has to choose the right combination.
The idea is that women should have an ovulation which should result in pregnancy and a healthy baby.
These women who have Polycystic Ovarian Disease even after the delivery they should be followed up for the blood sugar level and it will provide regularly they should be monitored because there is always a risk of type-2 diabetes developing in this group so one has to be careful that this need a monitoring for the rest of their life.
All such women who are suffering from Polycystic Ovarian Disease, they are advised to contact me on lybrate on their website or mobile app or they can come to me directly at my clinic.

Thalassemia is a genetically inherited blood disorder in which the body starts producing an abnormal form of hemoglobin. This hemoglobin gets destroyed by natural immunity, and ultimately leads to anemia.
What is the prevalence of Thalassemia?
Beta thalassemia is particularly prevalent among Mediterranean peoples, and due to this geographical association, it is also known as Mediterranean anemia. It is also commonly seen in Greece, Turkey, and Italy. In India, it is more commonly seen in Jain and Gujarati community.
Why does it occur?
Genetic mutation of the gene which is concerned with hemoglobin production is the major cause of it. This mutant gene is generally inherited from the parents. If both the parents transmit mutated gene to the offspring, then the offering will surely develop thalassemia, and if only one parent transmits mutant gene, then the offspring will become only carrier of the disease. He/she will not get the symptoms of the disease or very rarely he may get symptoms but in minor form.
Types of Thalassemia-
The globin part of hemoglobin includes alpha and beta globin. There are two main types of thalassemia, and they are as follows:
- Beta thalassemia: Beta thalassemia occurs when there is a defect in the production of beta globin. Beta thalassemia major is caused when there is no functional beta chain production. This is the most severe form. In beta thalassemia intermedia, some amount of hemoglobin A is produced. Beta thalassemia minor is caused when only one of the two beta globin alleles contains a mutation, so beta chain production is not terribly compromised.
- Alpha thalassemia: Alpha thalassemia occurs when the body cannot make alpha globin. It has two subtypes and they are as follows:
- Hemoglobin H: It develops when a person is missing three alpha globin genes.
- Hydrops fetalis: It develops when all the four alpha globin genes are altered or missing.
Symptoms of Thalassemia-
- Enlarged organs, such as spleen and liver
- Chest pain, cold hands and feet, shortness of breath, leg cramps, and rapid heartbeat
- Delayed growth
- Headaches, dizziness, and faintness
- Failure to thrive in newborn
- Pale or jaundiced skin
- Frequent infections
- A poor appetite
How to diagnose it?
Diagnosis can be made by following test:
- A complete blood count (CBC): To check hemoglobin level and size of red blood cells
- A reticulocyte count: To assist the pace at which reticulocytes are produced
- Genetic testing: To find out the faulty gene
What is the treatment available for it?
- Blood transfusions and bone marrow transplant
- Medications, vitamin supplements, and iron supplements
- Surgery to remove the spleen and gallbladder
- Chelation therapy to remove excess of iron and other heavy metals
