I had a few seconds of unprotected sex mid-cycle (14th day). Then, used condom and also took Ipill in 15 hours. It's been 10 days since I took the Ipill, still no bleeding. Just feeling light headed, a little bloated and slight pain in lower back. Really tensed. My next date is due on 20th May. What can I do right away to check the risk and ease my anxiety?

Do not do any thing, just wait till your due date. It seems you have taken the pill in good time, so most likely you are protected from unwanted pregnancy.

Is it possible to treat bleeding and back pain during early pregnancy please advice me.

This is a general low back ache and for this you can follow these measures: one keep a pillow right under the knee while sleeping, next is you can keep ice in the painful area for about 5--10 minutes, It looks like you are anaemic. If you have back pain after you sit for long hours then it is due to your haemoglobin levels as it is important to check that. Anaemia always leads to the symptoms of being tired and also having back / leg pain though there may not be any pathological reasons for back pain. And also pregnancy induced back ache is a big subject and it is generally due to the posture and the increasing tummy size.

Hi, I am suffering from severe lower back pain. please Advise. Looking for some physiotherapy near by.

Physiotherapist, Bangalore
1) avoid those activities which increases your pain. Eg: forward bending etc 2) one should find out the cause of your pain eg: if the pain has started suddenly, it could be a muscle pull while playing or bending or long stretch driving 3) if the pain is since long and is increasing gradually then you should go for a radiological report to diagnose the problem. Once the cause is known, treatment can be done accordingly. Mean while, focus on the following points: 1) place a cushion and support your back while driving/sitting. 2) check on your footwears. Bad footwear leads to back pain 3) place a pillow under your knees while sleeping straight and between your both knees while sleeping side lying (this technique helps to relax your muscles) 4) use a hot water bag/ heat belt to the painful area, heat will improve the blood flow to the muscles and hence will allow them to relax. 5) start certain stretching exercises. Regards!

We are planning to buy a weight loss exercise machine for reducing the fat. Please help us to choose the right machine considering my mother (the knee pain patient). She is about 5 ft height and 97 kg weight. My choice is electronic treadmill. Will it be a right choice? Please share your suggestions.

To lose weight with osteoarthritic knee or injured knee is difficult and should be done keeping in mind that injuries to knee should not be aggravated by exercises. Treadmill, squats, jogging and running are high impact workouts on knee and should be avoided. Following exercises can be done with low impact on knees. 1. Swimming doesnt exert stress on knee joint and burns fat if done at a stretch for 20 mins. 2. Strength training in form of bench press, shoulder press and abdominal exercises, triceps and biceps exercises can be done. 3. Walking on soft ground or soil as in garden can be done. In fact warm up before exercises in such patients can be done by a gentle walk. Avoid treadmill walk. 4. For home exercise machines, you can consider options like rowing machines, stationary cycle, elliptical machines. When using a cycle do not use on steep slopes or modes. 5. Along with exercise also use dietary modification in form of low calorie, protein rich diet to lose weight.

Dear patient, you need to control your further weight gain first for which you must do 40 mins of brisk walking daily (morning walk or evening walk before dinner) and do following diet control. Along with this homeopathic medications can help you cure this problem from root if taken regularly with detailed case taking, you can consult privately for the same with all your reports till now DO'S AND DONT'S: Avoid a sedentary life. Regular and moderate exercises daily, even for ten minutes will go a long way. Daily fast walking for 45 minutes is helpful to burn calories. Avoid a high fatty diet like cakes, biscuits, candies, chocolates, butter, cheese and sugar. Avoid fried and oily food Do not over-eat. Instead eat frequent small meals, rather than infrequent large meals with unhealthy snacks in between. Eat 3 to 4 moderate meals a day with your main meal in the middle of the day. Eat slowly. Not only will your meal last longer but it will also feel more substantial. Avoid smoking and alcohol as it predisposes a person towards obesity. Replace daily consumption of soft drinks, fruit juices and milk with 10-12 glasses of water. A simple crash diet is never an answer to obesity. Instead a balanced diet with regular exercise is advisable. Think of a permanent change rather than a short term dieting. Walking burns upto 250 calories per hour. Jogging uses about 400 calories per hour. Swimming burns upto 500 calories per hour and playing a game like squash could burn upto 650 calories per hour. Brisk walking at a pace of 120 steps per minute not only helps you to lose weight but also gives your heart and lungs a workout at the same time. DAILY CALORIE REQUIREMENTS: Men with inactive lifestyle : 2400 - 2500 cals Men with active lifestyle : 2800 - 3000cals Men with very active lifestyle : 3400 - 3500 cals Women with inactive lifestyle: 1900 cals Women with active lifestyle: 2150 cals Women with very active lifestyle: 2500 cals DIET CHART: Early morning: (6-7 am) : ? 1-2 glasses of Warm water with the some freshly squeezed lemon juice and after 15-20 mins you can have your morning tea. (preferably green tea) Breakfast: (9-10 am): Poha/upma/brown bread vegetable sandwhich/cornflakes with 1 bowl of seasonal fruits (avoid butter in sandwhich and excessive intake of bananas and chickoo) Lunch: (1-2 pm): it is better to start lunch with a small quantity of salad which can have sprouts into it. It helps your stomach to fill up enough so that you don?t bump into extra rotis when more hungry. It can be followed by 2 rotis, plate of cooked vegetables and 1 cup of dal. You can have 1 small cup of curd of skimmed milk or 1-2 glass of buttermilk. Evening snack: (5-6 pm): 1 cup tea with light snack of 2-3 wheat/oats biscuits. Dinner: 2 rotis (without ghee) with vegetables and brown rice if you want for 2 times/week in small quantities. Avoid curd at night as it causes constipation.

Skin infection is quite common in diabetic patients. Control hyperglycemia. Prevent lower limb from any kind of injury. If cellulitis has occurred again start antibiotics after consulting.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. I have seen your question today itself and now it is further 12 days since you asked it, so do you still have any issues with your ankle? soft tissue injuries take around 3-4 weeks to heal well if adequate management is done from initial stages. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.
