I am 21 years old and I am diagnosed to have tb in my uterus. My gynaecologist has suggested to take akt4 tablets all four tablets together in empty stomach. Is it the correct doses or it will cause any side effect?

Gynaecologist, Kolkata
Yes. There are side effects with all medicines. These tablets can cause nausea, vomiting, occasionally effect liver functions. However they are very effective in treating tuberculosis.

Emergency pill very often dont help, they can cause some hormonal changes and may not give protection always. Try some other safe method of contraception for your benefit.

The ultrasound report confirms that you are pregnant with 5 weeks 5 days gestational sac. But there is no cardiac activity of the baby. Any sort of bleeding during pregnancy is a bad sign. Your gynaecologist must have given you medicines to stop bleeding and for continuation of pregnancy. The ultrasound after 10 days will be to look for further growth of the baby and its cardiac activity. If the baby is growing and its heart beat is present then the pregnancy will be continued but if no cardiac activity is present then your pregnancy will have to be terminated. Lets hope that your bleeding will stops and everything goes well. Chances are only 50%. All the best.

Nothing much can be done. Response to chemotherapy depends on a nos of factors like type of tumour, stage, grade, hormone receptors present and inherent patient response. I would advice her to do as the Oncologist advices.

Techniques for Managing Hypertension During Pregnancy

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS, DGO
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Techniques for Managing Hypertension During Pregnancy

Hypertension during pregnancy can be a problem for both baby and the mother. Thus it is of utmost importance that during pregnancy a good health should be maintained along with controlled blood pressure and cholesterol levels. With an increase in multiple births and women of older age the risk of hypertension during pregnancy has increased. But if proper care is taken it can be avoided.

Types of Pregnancy Hypertension:
There are three prominent forms of hypertension that can be seen during pregnancy. The pregnant ladies should be aware of the same. These are:

  1. Preeclampsia: This is the most common and serious hypertension during pregnancy. This hypertension can only be controlled by delivering the fetus, which usually involves complications like death of the mother or child. This occurs 20 weeks after pregnancy.
  2. Gestational Hypertension: This form is only prevalent during pregnancy and is not a problem for the mother or baby after delivery. This usually occurs in the last leg of the pregnancy
  3. Chronic Hypertension: This form forms either prior to the pregnancy or before 20 weeks of the pregnancy.

Management of Pregnancy Hypertension:
Hypertension during pregnancy can be handled by the following:

  1. In case of severe hypertension, blood pressure medication should be continued during pregnancy.
  2. If you are on ACE inhibitor type medication, then the medication is changed to one that is even safe for the baby.
  3. Your doctor might like to monitor you daily and can advise hospitalization for a few days
  4. If medication is missed, it might lead to uncontrolled life threatening hypertension. Thus the medication should not be missed at any time.
  5. In case of mild hypertension and absence of other diseases like diabetes and kidney disorders, the doctor might stop the medication or reduce the dose. Also, being off medicine does not cause any problem in mild hypertension.
  6. Irrespective of the hypertension being mild or severe, the prenatal appointments should not be missed, so that the doctor can monitor you and the baby. So that problems, like rise in blood pressure, poor fetal growth, and signs of preeclampsia can be spotted and steps can be taken for the same.
  7. In case there is some form of hypertension present the prenatal visits and lab tests will be more.
  8. Apart from the usual second trimester ultrasound, there will be periodic ultrasounds in the third trimester to monitor the baby's growth and the amniotic fluid.
  9. Also regular fetal tests and Doppler ultrasounds will be done to track the baby's growth.
  10. Lifestyle changes should be made. Salt intake should be limited, fresh food instead of processed food should be consumed.
  11. If blood pressure is high then doctor might ask you to avoid exercise especially if you never did before pregnancy.

Be aware of natural breast enhancement supplements !

MBBS, MD - Community Medicine
General Physician, Jaipur
Be aware of natural breast enhancement supplements !
Natural breast enhancement supplements doesn't to work, even might have important adverse effects.
Manufacturers use to describe benefits of plant-derived phytoestrogens on breast health. However, no clinical trial have ever demonstrated such benefit. Serious drug interactions are possible with any of these herbs, especially if you take a blood-thinning medication such as warfarin.
Breast enlargement might be a side effect of certain drugs such as estrogen, contraceptive pills, paroxetine, and fluoxetine. But, any of these medications are not approved for breast enhancement.

I am 7 month pregnant what should I do for exercise ?

DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology), PGDHHM, MBBS
Gynaecologist,
I am 7 month pregnant what should I do for exercise ?
Walking: one of the best cardiovascular exercises for pregnant women, walking keeps you fit without jarring your knees and ankles. It's also easy to do almost anywhere, doesn't require any equipment beyond a good pair of supportive shoes, and is safe throughout all nine months of pregnancy. Swimming: healthcare providers and fitness experts hail swimming as the best and safest exercise for pregnant women. Swimming is ideal because it exercises both large muscle groups (arms and legs), provides cardiovascular benefits, and allows expectant women to feel weightless despite the extra pounds of pregnancy. Low-impact aerobics: aerobic exercise strengthens your heart and tones your body. And if you take a class for pregnant women, you'll enjoy the camaraderie of other moms-to-be and feel reassured that each movement is safe for you and your baby. Dancing: you can get your heart pumping by dancing to your favorite tunes in the comfort of your own living room, with a dvd, or at a dance class, but steer clear of routines that call for leaps, jumps, or twirls. If your have any contradictions due to exercise, please see your gynecologist immediately.

It is due to hormonal imbalance. You are mentally tense, relax and have good sleep. Take food timely. It is easy to say but hard to practice. But practice it it will help and free to consult again.
