I am suffering from periods problem its irregular thats y am nt getting pregnant since 5 years plzz help me.

Gynaecologist,
I am suffering from periods problem its irregular thats y am nt getting pregnant since 5 years plzz help me.
Yes and NO. Its known that those who have irregular menses have lower chances of ovulation and hence dificulty in conceiving. BUT many ladies have irregular menses and they do conceive. so the problem lies with HOW IRREGULAR are your menses? generally if a couple doesnt conceive withing 1 year of marriage, they approach a gynecologist and get treated There could be more reasons for you and your husband not conceiving. so a thoroguh examination and tests will tell us more about the case. Visit a local gynecologist and seek treatment

Hypothyroid may be the cause for delay in menses. If you have doubt of pregnancy perform your pregnancy test in 4 to 5 days of missed period. As it shows more accuracy. Today is 12, you can still perform, if negative wait for a week to appear menses normally. And if this irregularity remains persistent then get your ultrasonography done for pcod.

Saving a fallen tooth can be useful. Try to keep it in place while you seek immediate medical attention. If that is not the case, try wrapping the tooth in a piece of plastic or soaking it into milk and call for immediate dental service.

She has two fibroids and doctor asked her to remove uterus. Which is a better choice open surgery or key hole. Fibroid is big (don't know the size)

Laparoscopy is a better way as per patient comfort and recovery. Hwever, a large fibroid may need open Hysterectomy only

Please doctor tell me my breast are very loose please which medicine is helpful to become tight breast please tell me.
There are lots of reasons of loose breast- Aging process Heavy exercise Rapidly weight loose Pregnancy Breastfeeding There are some point which help you to make your breast tight. 1- wear bra according to the size And shape of your body, don’t pick too tight or loose bra as tight bra make your breast small also not good for you heart and lungs, and the loose bra makes you Breast loose simply. 2- do some exercise like chest fly exercise, you should also do push-up and butter fly exercise. 3- If you want to tighten your breast quickly, then surgery is also a good option. 4- Massage your breast with olive oil, and apply egg yolk on breast For 5 min and wash it. 5- Always sleep on back position.

My wife is 4 months pregnant. She is 27 years old. She was complaining of pain in the lower abdomen. When I called the gynaecologist, she advised for a USG. USG study reveals as follows. 1) Single live fetus at 14 wks gestation. 2) mobile presentation this time. 3) liquor is adequate largest cord free pocket is 3.9 cms. 4) PLACENTA IS ANTERIOR LOW LYING, LOWER EDGE REACHING INT OS, NOT COVERING IT, GRADE O MATURITY. 5) NO GROSS STRUCTURAL ANOMALY SEEN. The Gynaecologist advised for a complete bed rest and even suggested that my wife should not move even a little. And if she did She would bleed. And advised to take Michelle (Progesterone) tabs twice a day, ISR 40 (Isoxsuprine Hydrochloride, AqSusten 25 (Progesterone) injections. I went to another Gynaecologist, the one who well he is F.C.R.O.G. (UK) he said that don't give any medicines except Folic Acid, and that bed rest at this situation does nothing. Kindly advice me what to do. My wife is very tensed and cried a lot.

this is a little controversial .Actually there are two schools of thought.Both the doctors are right However in my opinion it is always better to be more careful.She can take rest at home and carry on her low exertion domestic activities and not necessarily bed rest.However travelling and sexual intercourse has to be avoided.She can continue with michelle and ISR40injections .You can consult your gynaec and shift to tablets also.Mental relaxation also is equally important

Don't worry! the symptoms you faced most likely due to kricchvatta in Ayurveda. Just relax. Increase intake of water, preferably lukewarm water. Have freshly prepared, warm, and easily digestible meals. Include celery seeds, cumin seeds, cloves, fenugreek, asafetida, black pepper, coriander, and mint in cooking. Avoid heavy, oily, sour, fried, and indigestible foods that can cause constipation and flatulence. Avoid pumpkin, potato, cauliflower, cabbage, peas, mushrooms, and eggplant. Have a regular body massage with sesame oil. Exercise lightly each day, such as walking or stretching on a regular basis. Have a good night’s sleep. Avoid all type of stress. And we have in Ayurveda proper lifestyle pattern to be followed that ensures easy conceiving and healthy baby. You may consult me online privately.

Will hymen break when penis is half inserted and will I get lower abdomen pain because of that.

Hymen can break from penis insertion & from many other reasons also. Half insertion of penis also can break hymen. You may get some bleeding and may get little pain at vaginal opening.

Irrespective of whether your pregnancy test tests comes out positive or negative, I would optimize your Thyroids and other relevant hormones and continue treatment right through pregnancy. I would also like to rule out Autoimmune Thyroiditis. These are important to improve your chances of conceiving and preserving pregnancy.

PCOS is a very common problem. The exact nature of the medicines given will depend on your blood test results. However in order to regularise your periods you need to start taking regular hormonal pills at least for the next 6 months. Please read my health tip on PCO. You may find it useful
