As you got your monthly cycle started so pregnancy is not possible, pain in vagina might be due to infection or dryness, so lady keep yourself hydrated in this dry weather, take good amount of semi solids like shakes lemon juices, sugarcane juice, and lassie curds any of milk products like cold coffee, hot coffee, this will definitely benefit you, regarding dizziness, this is not due to ears but get your ears also checked to be on safer side.

There is no risk of pregnancy since you had sex in the last week of menstrual period which is considered as a safe period. She will have her normal period next month if previous cycles are normal

What type of diet should be taken in second trimester of pregnancy. Can we take heavy fat diet. And what type of exercise require.

MBBS, MS OBSTETRICS & GYNAECOLOGY, DNB OBSTETRICS & GYNAECOLOGY, MRCOG PART1, PGDMLS
Gynaecologist, Thane
Diet in second trimester should be healthy, home made food preferably, not very spicy/ fried/oily, protein rich (pulses, daals, eggs, fish, sprouts). Include all seasonal fruits except raw papaya/ pineapple, take dry fruits like 1/2 almonds, preferably soaked, 1/2 walnuts, figs, black raisins, it gives you iron & calcium required for pregnancy. Eat small frequent meals, every 2/3 hrly which reduces discomfort/ nausea after meals.

Hi. I understand your concerns. Asthma is chronic and a common problem causing symptoms. Asthma does not cause any harm to your pregnancy if it is well controlled before your pregnancy with adequate dose of inhalers. Consult a pulmonologist for the same. Hope your questions were answered. Thanks.

Physiotherapy Treatment for Sleep Paralysis

MSPT (Master of Physical Therapy), BPT

Physiotherapy Treatment for Sleep Paralysis

Physiotherapy and sleep paralysis have a deep connection when you have to treat sleep paralyses the intelligent way. To discover the benefits of physiotherapy in healing sleep paralysis, let's get a clear understanding of sleep paralyses first and then the role of physiotherapy. 

What is sleep paralysis and its common causes?
Sleep paralysis is a sleeping disorder, its symptoms are such  that you suddenly feel in the middle of the night or in mid sleep that you can't move, react, talk, etc. and feel that your body has frozen. This immobility is accompanied with frightful or eerie visions or sounds, which are not the reality and you still hallucinate. 
This is often caused because of the following reasons, which are considered common causes of sleep paralysis:

  • A medical condition called narcolepsy
  • No fixed time of sleeping and waking, thus creating imbalance in sleep patterns
  • Inadequate sleep through the 24 hours
  • Excessive stress and workload
  • Alcohol consumption or drug abuse
  • A bad diet like heavy meals at night before bedtime
  • Extreme caffeine consumption

If any of these things are common, you may get a sleep paralysis.

Physiotherapy in healing sleep paralysis:
If it is a one night episode, you will eventually forget this. However, in case you are a victim every night or frequently, you may need some good remedies. Medications may not suit all, but physiotherapy is a safe mode of treatment, which suits all and people of all ages. That is why try physiotherapy for sleep paralysis at home or by going to a nearest physiotherapy center or expert.

How physiotherapy helps
Physiotherapy has some unique benefits like:

  1. It brings a balance in blood circulation through the body, which helps in lowering the blood pressure, normalize mood, reduce stress, and makes the blood flow to the body organs and brain better, thus inducing a good night's sleep.
  2. The exercise induced on to the body through physiotherapy has a dual effect. It makes the muscles workout, and induces the massage effect too. This makes the muscles more mobile, and brings warmth on the tissues. That is why exercising before bedtime can help you get a very peaceful sleep without fearful dreams and interferences of sleep paralysis attacks.
  3. You get a better mood due to increased blood circulation and the feeling of well-being due to the agile and worked out muscles. This good mood and satisfaction after a nice physiotherapy session sometime before you sleep lets the serotonin or happiness and satisfaction hormone build up in the body and brain. This makes you sleep without stress and in a nice mood thus resisting sleep paralysis.

Its always better to go for barrier methods. One should never take any hormonal pills without recommendation of your doctor. U need to get urself fully evaluated by a gynaecologist before taking anything. Do not take any over the counter pills google is not everything.

Let's Celebrate This Diwali in a Healthy Way!

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
Internal Medicine Specialist, Mumbai
Let's Celebrate This Diwali in a Healthy Way!

Diwali is the celebration of lights. However, it has also become associated with noise, smoke and pollution. This can be credited to a large number of firecrackers, which are burst as part of Diwali celebrations. Pollution affects not only your skin but also your internal health and can lead to a number of health problems such as:

Respiratory problems
Smoke is a common byproduct of every firecracker. These suspended particles in the air, when inhaled, can lead to a number of respiratory problems. In some cases, this floating particulate matter may also contain heavy metal oxides and salts that can get deposited in the lungs and cause irreversible damage. Asthmatic patients often see a sudden spike in respiratory attacks around Diwali.

To deal with respiratory issues during Diwali, wear face masks to limit the inhalation of noxious fumes. Those who are suffering already from respiratory concerns should get themselves examined after Diwali to be on the safe side.

Digestive problems
While bursting crackers, a small residue of particulate matter is often left behind on your fingers. Since bursting crackers and enjoying sweetmeats go hand in hand on Diwali, there is a high chance of ingesting these chemicals. Even washing your hands may not get rid of all the chemical traces. This can lead to indigestion and a number of other digestive problems.
Take care to wash your hands thoroughly with soap before you touch any food item. You can use a sanitizer as well for extra protection. If you experience any gastric discomfort, visit a physician without delay.

Hearing problems
Pollution is not measured only by the levels of particulate matter in the air. Excessive noise that goes over the permissible decibel level leads to noise pollution. This can be in the form of noise emitted by firecrackers, loudspeakers etc. Noise pollution can lead to temporary deafness and damage the ear as well. It can also lead to sleeping problems, high blood pressure and permanent hearing loss.
To avoid noise-related problems, use ear plugs and keep your doors and windows closed. Heart patients should, especially get themselves checked by a doctor after Diwali or if a problem suddenly arises during festivities.

Skin problems
Many children and adults suffer from skin irritations and eczema during Diwali. This is largely due to pollutants in the air and chemical residue left on the skin. To keep skin problems at bay, drinks lots of water, use moisturiser, avoid fried food, cover your face with a cloth while burning crackers and wash your face afterwards thoroughly. For those already suffering from skin worries, consult your doctor for guidance.

The best way to limit your exposure to harmful chemicals and pollutants during Diwali is by celebrating an eco-friendly Diwali and saying ‘no to crackers’. Additionally, try to stay indoors in the evening when crackers are being burnt and close all the windows and doors. Wearing a mask can also help prevent the inhalation of poisonous gases. This is especially necessary for people suffering from asthma and other such respiratory illnesses. Air pollutants do not clear away immediately and are present in the air for many days after Diwali as well. Hence, try staying indoors and keep the windows of your car rolled up for the next few days after Diwali as well.

I took an ECP after an unprotected intercourse on 23rd July and then after a week followed bleeding for 6 days, exactly like my normal periods. But, I guess that it was withdrawal bleeding. My normal period should have started by around 11th July, but I haven't got it yet. What does this mean?

When you get your withdrawal bleeding you dont get your period at expected time. Now you should expect around 30/7 if you are getting regular monthly periods

No there is no harm in swallowing vaginal secretion unless there is infection. If there is itching and fowl smell then there is infection. During infection time you should avoid this act.

Hello doctor from last 5 years I am diabetic my age is 33 yrs I came to know this when I conceive my first baby now the problem is that after having the baby for first year I was regular in checkups but now I am not going any where and taking insulin 20 in the morning and 20 in the evening want to consult a doctor what I have to do to give him that information before consulting him

MD DGO, Laparoscopic Surgery
Integrated Medicine Specialist, Mumbai
Integrative medicine is a recent advance, and a healing system through which conditions like Diabetes can be reversed. Yes thats right, reversed, so that its possible that your Insulin may be stopped and you may return to your normal vibrant health. Of course, this can be confirmed only after a detailed consultation and testing, but the system works. As an example, a 65 yr old patient, diabetic since 25 years and on high dose of Insulin, was able to reduce Insulin to 40% in one week.
