I have PCOD. I missed my periods in june. I had taken I-Pill for next 2 months but it did not affected my periods. Also the vaginal area has become dark and its itching very much. What should I do?

Dear lybrate-user, have you ever browsed about your pcod. If yes, you would not have asked me a question like this. It's polycystic ovarian syndrome and not" d" disease. Syndrome means a group of symptoms. Symptoms are those which are said by the patient. Dark armpits, inner thighs and neck, facial hair, upper lip hair, fatty body, acne (pimples) and so and so are the symptoms of pcos. There is only one way to get it correct. Make up your mind. That I will get rid of pcos. If ready, then you are free from 50% of your disease. The first thing you need to do is follow a healthy lifestyle. I mean in both sense. Follow the instructions of a good doctor by intake of medicines and do exercises. With just 21 years nd 90 kg means your bmi is more than 25; which puts in obese category. Follow it for one month, result is yours. All the best. Go ahead.

Did They Live Happily Ever After?

Did They Live Happily Ever After?

We look around at our friends' marriage and often conclude that their marriage is better than ours. No wonder we turn to self-pity mode for not being to lucky to have a happier and exciting relationship. Who knew the love shall fade away! Where is the harmony and intimacy we always dreamt of ??

Why does romance not last? When we need someone to love and more importantly to be loved. All success, a seven digit salary, and big cars, nothing. nothing lets us feel content unless we have someone to share it with. Probably you have been married for years and have lost the romantic spark you had. And you look back and start analysing, where, what, when and how things went wrong?

And blame game starts; you curse circumstances and try to justify your actions

Ritikaa and Mehul fell in love at first sight. Despite family resistance they married. After a few months, they were arguing for small things and wondering why did they have married. Dr Radhakrishnan is a scientist married to a pathologist; he is looking from separation from his wife after 26 years, though he is not seeing anyone else.

Suchitra and Prakash married ten years ago, they divorced after two years of their marriage. They don't have kids. There were no obligations but they reunited four years back and divorced again, but still the relationship is not broken.

Do happy couples exist??? Heartbroken Alok who is just 32 yrs old, asked me with teary eyes - I earn 4 crores a year, but I feel lonely, unloved and dejected!

Every day I listen to stories of heartache! And my belief in the power of love and affection is growing many folds.

Marriage is more than being a room partner! Not only marriage but any relationship is like a plant, we need to nurture it to blossom. Every marriage faces its own challenges at different time and for different reasons. We need to consciously work on it but with ease.

No marriage is boring or perfect! It's about how do we respond to our marriage.

Every couple has to face common issues related with adjusting with new families, career balance, baby plans (in some cases), spending, eating, hygiene (bathroom etiquettes) habits of spouse, interest and hobbies, gender specific responsibilities and of course money matters.

Let it be anything . .Assertiveness is key to success.

Watch your own actions:

  • Are you imposing thoughts and actions on your spouse: you have imagined a world, and are trying to move things as per our own wish?

  • Are you expecting without explaining to her/ him: you might be soul-mates, but don't forget that no two people can be the same. Explain your expectations but don't put conditions to get it accomplished. Allow your spouse to take her or his call.

  • Are you respecting differences in opinion- disagreement is not disrespect for your views and opinions. It's about perspectives (based on pre conceived notions)

  • Are you reading your spouse's mind and assuming? Stop assuming, ask but be assertive, use appropriate words, tone and pitch.

  • Are you giving some room for mistakes?  Give people some space to make mistakes, forgive them and self too. Communicate if something bothers you a lot.

  • Are you judging by actions not understanding intentions? Relax! Before you make opinions and decide you can't take it anymore. Sometimes your spouse is completely clueless and unaware about your mind.

  • Are you trying to bridge the gap between your spouse and your parents? Relationships are very one-to-one. Never try to bridge the gap between them, you shall end up being a sandwich and will spoil your relations too. Let them grow their own relationship.

  • Communicate clearly and explain your expectations about money matters - involve your spouse in your financial planning, it's a way to generate trust between you and spouse and it helps to work on budgets and spending habits.

  • Express clearly about sexual needs and desire. Physical intimacy plays a very important role in marriage. Seek professional help to sort things out before you think you are incompatible.

  • Make a choice not a sacrifice (otherwise you shall expect your spouse to repay it in the way you want).

I am trying to conceive my wife from last 3 months but didn't get success. My semen analysis is also normal. But prolactin in my wife's blood test is 41.5 Ng/ ml. She can get pregnant or not. What is cure for that how this can be normal. Or there can be another reason for the same.

MBBS, DNB - Obstetrics & Gynecology

Hi lybrate-user with this high prolactin conceiving is difficult. Your wife has to start medicine to reduce prolactin and also evaluate why prolactin is high. When prolactin is normal, natural conception is possible. U can send me all your reports online and consult.

I am 8 weeks pregnant I have frequent vomiting after eating every meal whatever I eat I vomit. What is the reason and what is the solution for that? I feel too tired. Pls suggest.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
What you are having are symptoms of early pregnancy. Till 3.5 - 4 months, some patients experience symptoms like headache giddiness altered taste in mouth retrosternal burning mild breast pain burning in upper part of tummy (above umbilicus) mild pain occasionally on lower tummy frequent passage of urine gaseous distension of tummy infrequent motions weakness feeling of having no energy in body, limbs feel tired feel sleepy all the time feel listless, not interested in any work, nausea vomiting feel like body has fever, but temperature on measurement is normal feel as if you are in convalescent eprios all these symptoms are normal, and are due to the body's response to the hormones released for pregnancy growth. The major symptom is due to hyperacidity, which causes most of the symptoms. This can be tackled with dietary alterations: from getting up to sleeping at night, eat every 2-3 hourly eat dry food stuffs (puffed rice, biscuits, chapati sabji, papad, peanuts, sprouted beans, khakhara, dhokla, idli, dosa, candy, chikki, sweetmeats from mithaiwala, namkeen items.) eat just a small wati full every 2-3 hours try to eat food stuff thats dry. So that it does not come out in vomits eat food stuff at normal temperature, as hot foods have strong aromas eat foods with different tastes to prevent boredom eat food stuff that is ready made, so the energy drained in making it avoided even if you vomit after every food intake, keep on eating, as food neutralizes the acid produced in the stomach avoid foods with excess chilli, spices, masala and oil avoid eating street food esp panipuri, samosas, puris etc even if a patient vomits she always retains a good part of the eaten food in her tummy. So frequent eating will fulfill her daily requirements if you have gone to a gynec for a check up she would have prescribed you some anti emetic tablets, take these anti-emetics meant for pregnant women if plain anti-emetics are not working, you can add to them, some over the counter medicines to tackle acidity like syrups and tablets to reduce acidity as acidity is main cause of vomiting frequent eating will also keep glucose levels high, and help in making you feel better avoid- powders which are put in water to make" energy drinks" like glucon-c, d etc which are finally chemicals. While all kinds of fruits can be consumed in pregnancy, except papaya, pineapple, it is best is to take fruits which are rich in water (watermelon, oranges, sweet lime) keep yourself occupied by involving yourself in activities like reading, listening to music, learning some art like knittting, sewing etc.

May be it is vaginismus, in which there is involuntary spasm in the vaginal muscles, mainly caused by fear of being hurt. You should shed your fear and insecurity. Take these bach flower remedies available at homeopathic shops mix two drops each of mimulus, rock rose and star of bethelehm and take it four times daily mixed in some water for 6 weeks. It is safe & effective.

Breast me glands ho hata hai ar uska operation karwane k kuch saal baad phir agar glands ho jata hai to kya karna chahiye agar aise hi usko chod diya jaye to koi problem to nhi hoga.

Bsc(Med.), DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)

HI Lybrate user First of all you should consult a local gynaecologist to get your physical examination of breast done. If it is benign then treatment is different. Sometimes only vit .E and evening primerose oil helps. But if it is otherwise, the treatment is different. The doctor may recommend digital mammography and FNAC (fine needle aspiration cytology- syringe se mass le kar lab. Me test karvaya jata hai ki kiss trah ka mass hai) yeh baht simple test hai. Let your doctor decide what to do in your case whether treatment is required or it can be left as such.

Hello doctor Am 12 weeks pregnant. And due to morning sickness eating very less food will it affect my baby? And also stress and crying so much at this point of pregnancy will it harm my baby? After crying I had little pain in my abdomen. How to know my baby is fine or not? I had scan at 11 weeks and everything was fine in it.

11 weeks scan is fine. So it's reassuring. Now regarding morning sickness- if excessive it can cause dehydration and affect growth of the baby. Avoid spicy food and plan your meals accordingly. Do not stay in empty stomach for long time. If it persists, you need to consult doctor and check blood reports.

I smoke daily. Does smoking prevent my pregnancy? Does I need to quit smoking in order to get pregnant?

Gynaecologist, Gurgaon
Smoking is not good before or during pregnancy, so ideally you should quit smoking as its harmful for the baby, also if you are smoking it sometimes is difficult to get pregnant.

Hello, Generally calcium, iron, folic acid supplements are recommended for first two trimester and there are a lot of physical and mental developments taking place with the baby. Even if the to be mother is not deficient in any of the nutrients she is advised to take supplements to ensure there is no scope of deficiencies to occur in the later stages. From a diet prospective its very important to know that a fresh home cooked meals loaded with all the important nutrients are taken. Remember there can be no comparison between the food which is cooked and consume against supplements. Supplements cannot replace healthy meals. Take care.

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.
