I am 41 years old . I am not pregnant. But my period suddenly stops for a month. What medicine should be taken?

Advanced Aesthetics
Ayurveda, Gulbarga
At times, menopause can be triggered by medical procedures, such as a hysterectomy, chemotherapy and radiation therapy, or primary ovarian insufficiency condition. While going through menopause, fluctuating levels of estrogen and progesterone can cause symptoms like hot flashes, night sweats, tired feet, insomnia, depression, vaginal dryness, bladder problems, thinning hair, dry skin, breast pain, mood swings and memory problems. Most women do not need treatment for menopausal symptoms because they go away by themselves. However, if you are bothered by the symptoms, there are many natural ways to deal with them. Any queries inform me.

I have suffering pain in breast from last 2-3 days and also pain in pubic from today Why it occurs and what treatment I have done.

Oncologist, Faridabad
Pain in breast when you are nearing your menstruation is normal due to hormonal changes and swelling, it reverts on its own and you can take analgesics and slightly restrict salt intake. Probably that also relates to your pubic pain. You can take some analgesics for the same.

1.Change positions Certain positions may put more pressure on the chest, causing shortness of breath. Experiment with those that allow you to remain upright during sex. Take your meds first If you take medications (such as a bronchodilator) before engaging in other types of physical activity, check with your doctor about doing the same before having sex. Tell your doctor Whether you've been diagnosed with asthma or not, your doctor needs to know if breathing problems (shortness of breath, wheezing, or coughing) are putting the brakes on intimacy. This is important information in terms of prescribing the best treatment Delay in menses could be due to hormonal disturbances due to anxiety, pain,med.

Hi Doctor, I have one failed ivf with 3 frozen transfers with PGD normal embryos. On Consulting another doctor they said I have focal and diffused Adenomyosis because of which The first ivf would have failed. My question what is the treatment option available in allopathy or homeopathy to treat adenomyosis before my next ivf. My doctor has done EGG retrieval now FOR SECOND IVF and have frozen eggs and have told me to take decapeptyl injection for 3 months and then immediately transfer embryos. Is this treatment successful and is right? Or there are better options available. Are there chances I conceive ,I have got 3 day 3 embryos (2 are good quality and one is average quality embryo)
