Do a urine pregnancy test yourself using preganews etc. It will be positive by now in case you r pregnant. If its negative then wait for spontaneous periods.

M suffering from irregular periods. please give me a suggestion? Sometimes there are 2 months gap.
Hello lybrate-user, if you are suffering from irregular menses since a long time, it will be better if you undergo a sonography. Besides, you seem to be over weight so there is a possibility that you will be suffering from pcod. If you are suffering from pcod, you will have to take a proper course of medication in order to over come it.

Though menstrual blood is released from the uterus, the hormones which are involved in this event are produced in the ovaried and brain. The brain is the master regulator of the body's function. Many a women notice that their menses get irregular when they have any emotional event like exams, marriage, childbirth, or illness affecting them or any members of the family staying with her. After marriage when a bride comes to stay with her inlaws, there is a great change in her surrounding, s with newer people, newer customs and tensions of married life, so in such a emotionally laden atmosphere the menses are bound to get irregular. Pregnancy can be detected on the day of missed periods at the earliest. So do a urine pregnancy test using a early morning sample. Do it in a lab, and see the results. If negative, you are not pregnant and what ever you are experiencing are symptoms related to missing periods, without pregnancy. If periods do not come for next 15 days do the upt again and see, if negative you can meet a gynecologist to get advice about the periods and medicines to get menses. If upt is positive, you still need to see the gynecologist to get advice on do's and don'ts of pregnancy and medicines.

It is normal actually to start bleeding 7 days before or 7 days after the previous date. You need not consult a gynaecologist for this. But still if you your heart says to go and visit a gynaec. You can definitely get it done. Take care :)

I am 19 year old girl. I had sex with my partner from 6th aug to 10th aug and we used to withdrawal method and sometimes without condom but on 8th august we had sex and he ejaculated sperm inside then I take i-pill in approx 10 hours after that we had sex with condom only and previous month I had periods from 21july-26july but today is 29th aug I am very much worried about my periods are not coming please help me out from this that what to do should I wait or what? And why all this happening?

Diploma in Anesthesia, MBBS
General Physician, Hyderabad
Withdrawal method is most unreliable should not be used in your situation meaning premarital sex and all. At this stage you can only wait till 45 th day of your previous period and get pregnancy test done. Basing on the result you have to act. Question of why all this happening is absured, having perfromed some action, you expect the body not to react? So donot panick, wait till the pregnancy report and for every thing there is a solution. Good luck.

I am happy to know that your sugar levels are in control. However, please check hba1c% it should be around 6.5%, which means the control is good. It is important that you also maintain your weight near normal, right now your bmi is 29.77kg/m2 which shows obesity. Obesity also affects diabetes and fertility. Please take care to cut your weight as it is high as your ideal body weight should be 57 kgs. You need to exercise for more than 1 h a day and follow restricted diet avoiding deep fried foods, red meat and high fat containing items.

The benefits of sunbathing

Physiotherapist, Chennai
The benefits of sunbathing
The sun helps, too
Sunbathing is something we associate with expats from western countries but we should be doing it too or take vitamin D supplements especially around 50 years of age. This is vital for bones. An increased intake of salmon sardines egg yolks and milk may help too but may not be sufficient so supplements come in.
Accordingly people between 19 to 70 years of age need a dosage of 600iu (international unit) a day and above 70 years of age the dosage is 800 iu a day. And upper limit is 4000 iu. Hence go on and get some sunshine and avoid the pills.

DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology), PGDHHM, MBBS
Gynaecologist,
Here is no cure for pcod or pcos, it needs to be managed to prevent problems. Treatment goals are based on your symptoms, whether or not you want to become pregnant, and lowering your chances of getting heart disease and diabetes. Many women will need a combination of treatments to meet these goals. Some treatments for pcod include: lifestyle modification. You can help manage your pcod by eating healthy and exercising to keep your weight at a healthy level. Limiting processed foods and foods with added sugars adding more whole-grain products, fruits, vegetables, and lean meats to your diet birth control pills. For women who don't want to get pregnant, birth control pills can help control menstrual cycles and to clear acne for women looking for pregancy: lack of ovulation is usually the reason for fertility problems in women with pcod. Several medications that stimulate ovulation can help women with pcod become pregnant. It is advised that you should consult gynecologist who can help you based on your symptoms and requirements to manage pcod.

Get Your Sunday's Back, say Hello to Laser Hair Removal!

Get Your Sunday's Back, say Hello to Laser Hair Removal!

We all want to look our best. Being well dressed and presentable boosts our confidence and equips us to deal better with any professional or personal obligations that we may have. Someone who’s sharply dressed, well done hair, properly done eyebrows, no trace of facial or body hair, will make a better first impression than someone who’s unkempt. And it is a commonly agreed upon fact that the first impression on someone will speak volumes about our future interactions with them.

One of the most observable feature of our entire getup is facial and body hair. Imagine being completely updated with the latest trends while choosing an attire, but then your body hair shows through! It will be a little disconcerting and plays down all our efforts. Understandably, going to salons for waxing/threading or even tweezing on a regular basis can be time consuming and many times, we might also feel too lazy to step out for the sole purpose of hair removal. Rather than going to the parlour for hair removal every month (and in some case, once in every two weeks even), it makes more sense to find a more permanent solution to this. Opting for laser hair removal can rid us of this headache (Learn more about headache/migrain problem).

Laser hair removal is a modern technology developed for the increasingly chic and conscious population that likes to be always ready to go out without worrying about a disturbing view of stubble spoiling their look. Laser hair removal is a non-invasive procedure that removes unwanted hair from our body without major side effects, by using a long pulsed laser. Lasers can cause localized damage by selectively heating dark matter or melanin. Hence, it targets the hair follicle, while not heating the rest of the skin. General side effects include mild itchiness, temporary redness and swelling, pain, tingling or a temporary feeling of numbness. (Learn more about Laser Hair Removal Treatment)

But, be careful as to do careful research before finalising your specialist. It’s imperative to hold thorough discussions with the team that carries out the hair removal and be assured of their competence.

Fever

ARCD in Critical Care, PG Dip in Emergency Medicine, MD - Community Medicine
Unani Specialist, Delhi
Fever

A fever is a temporary increase in your body temperature, often due to an illness. Having a fever is a sign that something out of the ordinary is going on in your body.

Fever or elevated body temperature might be caused by:

  • A virus
  • A bacterial infection
  • Heat exhaustion
  • Extreme sunburn
  • Certain inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis - inflammation of the lining of your joints (synovium)
  • A malignant tumor
  • Some medications, such as antibiotics and drugs used to treat high blood pressure or seizures
  • Some immunizations, such as the diphtheria, tetanus and acellular pertussis (dtap) or pneumococcal vaccine


Lifestyle and home remedies

You can try a number of things to make yourself or your child more comfortable during a fever:

  • Drink plenty of fluids. Fever can cause fluid loss and dehydration, so drink water, juices or broth. For a child under age 1, use an oral rehydration solution such as pedialyte. These solutions contain water and salts proportioned to replenish fluids and electrolytes. Pedialyte ice pops also are available.
  • Rest. You need rest to recover, and activity can raise your body temperature.
  • Stay cool. Dress in light clothing, keep the room temperature cool and sleep with only a sheet or light blanket.

 

Prevention

You may be able to prevent fevers by reducing exposure to infectious diseases. Here are some tips that can help:

  • Wash your hands often and teach your children to do the same, especially before eating, after using the toilet, after spending time in a crowd or around someone who's sick, after petting animals, and during travel on public transportation.
  • Show your children how to wash their hands thoroughly, covering both the front and back of each hand with soap and rinsing completely under running water.
  • Carry moist towelettes or hand sanitizer with you for times when you don't have access to soap and water.
  • Try to avoid touching your nose, mouth or eyes, as these are the main ways that viruses and bacteria can enter your body and cause infection.
  • Cover your mouth when you cough and your nose when you sneeze and teach your children to do likewise. Whenever possible, turn away from others when coughing or sneezing to avoid passing germs along to them.
  • Avoid sharing cups, water bottles and utensils with your child or children.
