Please take ultrasound scan of abdomen and pelvis, and check your husband semen analysis, since your cycle last for only 2 days, there would be most probably lack of proper ovulation or healthy egg release which needs targeted medicine and treatment, consult me private for further details.

Try to perform more of fore play to ease her. There are even good homeo medicines to treat this condition and if you need any please write back to me in detail.

Breathlessness? Find Out What is Giving Your Lungs a Hard Time

Pulmonary Fibrosis : Symptoms ad Causes

One of the essential chemical processes within the human body is that of the oxygenation of the blood. This needs to be done to carry oxygen to the various vital organs and also continue with many of the essential functions within the body.

The lungs are responsible for transferring oxygen throughout the body, and the malfunctioning of lungs may cause many issues with the normal functioning of the processes. A common ailment that affects the lungs is pulmonary fibrosis, also known as idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis or scarring of the lungs.

What is Pulmonary Fibrosis?
Pulmonary fibrosis is the scarring of the tissues inside the lungs of a patient. This scarring results in the development of excess tissue, which causes the walls of the lungs to thicken, giving rise to breathing difficulties.

Some of the symptoms of pulmonary fibrosis are-
- Shortness of breath
- Pain in joint and muscles
- Continuous dry coughing
- Inability to exert or take even the slightest bit of physical strain
- Lack of appetite which results in unintentional weight loss
- The rounding of finger and toe tips, which is known as clubbing
Pulmonary fibrosis has various stages and thus, it is important to detect it early or else it can put stresses on other vital organs.

Some of the causes for it are mentioned below:

  • Smoking - Cigarettes, cigars, and beedi are a leading cause of pulmonary fibrosis as they directly affect the lungs by depositing harmful chemicals and thus, cause scarring.
  • Environmental or occupational hazards - People working in a heavy glass or dust particulate environment such as in heavy industrial factories are also susceptible as they breathe in the particles, which may cause scarring.
  • Medicinal triggers - Certain medications can be a trigger due to hormonal or other physical changes and as a side effect may cause scarring of the lungs.
  • Genetic factors - Certain people are genetically predisposed to this condition if multiple members within the family have it as well.
  • Acid reflux diseases - Certain acid reflux problems may also cause scarring when drops of stomach acids enter the lung through the esophageal tract.

My question is about irregular periods. I diagnosed with pcos in minor. What should I do? What should be my workout and diet? I got married on 5 december ? I want to conceive in this year? What is the homeopathy treatment for this?

Lifestyle modification is the primary treatment. Lose weight and avoid all fatty food. Excercise daily. And keep trying for coception. Generally treatment for infertility not started by doctors before 1 year of marriage. So you keep trying and follow the advice.

Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, The main reason of irregular menses is any nutritional deficiency apart from many other reasons. Take more of green vegetables, nuts, salads, seasonal fruits, yellow coloured veggies, milk & milk products, plenty of water and enough of sleep & rest. Take homoeopathic medication – Schwabe's Five Phos. And Alfaalfa Tonic – both thrice daily for 1 month. Thereafter revert me back..take care.
