I would advise her to get a transvaginal USG done to find out. Ovarian cysts may be asymptomatic. Or they can be associated with lower abdominal pain, painful periods, pain during intercourse, pressure symptoms. Symptoms depend on the size and nature of the cyst.

Not necessarily. However if one of your tubes is blocked it is important that you undergo surgery to open the blockage.

I am a 20 year old boy. I am suffering from slight pain during urinating due to cystitis, please help.

MBBS, MS - General Surgery, DNB
Urologist, Bangalore
If it is slight pain during urination, it can be cystitis or urethritis (that is, inflammation of the bladder or urethra). If is persistent or severe you need to investigate with a urine analysis and urine culture. If it is reducing then you need not worry. If it happens repeatedly you may again investigate.

Safe period is usually from 19th day of menstrual cycle to next menstrual cycle. For women having normal menstrual cycle for every 28 days. Danger period is: 10th day to 19th day. As this is considered as ovulatory phase. Usually ovulation occurs during this period. Ovulation means fertilization of egg.

At this age, tightening of vagina is possible with ayurvedic pessaries. These tablets increase blood flow to vagina making it tighter without any side effects. Just let me know your height and weight so as to arrive at perfect prescription.

What precautions to be taken for low lying placenta in 22 weeks of gestation.

MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology
Gynaecologist,
Hi, low lying placenta at 22 pose the risk of bleeding so precautions must be taken to avoid bleeding at any cost. Don't exert yourself to much. Do only light work. Avoid intercourse. Remain indoor as much as possible take complete rest most of the time regular prenatal check up healthy nutritious diet to maintain hemoglobin level. But don't worry as risk period is short because in most of cases placenta migrates upwards as the pregnancy advance and reaches its normal position and allows normal delivery.

You can take Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, avoid alcohl if you take.

- there is excess fat deposited during pregnancy in the tummy. If you continue exclusive breastfeeding to your baby, it will burn that fat very fast. Also muscles of the tummy gets lax because of the growing fetus. To increase the tone of these abdominal muscles, you need to start brisk walk or jogging daily for 4-5 km and increase your protein intake. This will burn fat very fast reduce the size of your tummy. Also one can do exercises like sit-ups.

Hello, the urine pregancy test can be undertaken only after 8 days of missed periods to avoid any false negatives. However you may get a serum beta hcg test done as of now to be sure.
