Hi i am 30 years old I have early periods around 4 months. Why and what should I do ?

M.B.S.(HOMEO), MD - Homeopathy

Polymenorrhea is the medical term for cycles with intervals of 21 days or fewer. Irregular menstruation is where there is variation in menstrual cycle length of more than approximately eight days for a woman. The normal period length the average length of the cycle is 28 days and this is the length often used in textbooks. Normal menstrual cycle length can be anyway from 21 to 35 days. If your cycle length is within this range, and that is what you have every month, then that is what is normal for you. Causes of polymenorrhea the causes of polymenorrhea overlap with many of the causes of abnormal uterine bleeding or those of irregular periods. Common, simple causes include stress, excessive exercise, medications or perimenopause. More serious causes include diseases of the pelvic organs especially those with hormonal disturbances like polycystic ovarian disease. Consul homeopath.

Emergency Contraception - What is it?

MBBS, DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology), Fellowship in IVF
Gynaecologist, Amritsar
Emergency Contraception - What is it?

Contraception refers to something, which works to prevent a pregnancy from occurring. But what is emergency contraception? This sort of contraception is made use of in case other methods of birth control do not work or a woman has had unprotected sex.

This sort of contraception is also referred to as the morning after pill and postcoital contraception, which effectively means that it is taken after sex. Well, if while having sexual intercourse, there is a breakage of the condom or it slips off the penis, then it is a good idea to make use of emergency contraceptives, as should a woman if it so happens that she misses two or more birth control pills over the course of her monthly cycle.

While it is true that a large majority of emergency contraceptives, which are available in the market today are in the form of pills, note that this is not the only form of emergency contraception. As a matter of fact, copper containing intra uterine devices (IUDs) happen to be the most effective way to prevent a pregnancy from occurring, but this is only true if they are fitted within five days of unprotected sex. Again, even in this case, the sooner, the better!

Most people believe that an emergency contraceptive is almost always successful in ending a pregnancy. This is quite inaccurate as the main intention of an emergency contraceptive is not to end a pregnancy, but to prevent it from happening in the first place. This is exactly why it is so essential to have an emergency contraceptive pill after sex as soon as possible. The longer a woman delays, the higher the risk of fertilisation taking place and pregnancy then being left to be a foregone conclusion.

It is important to keep in mind that emergency contraception is not a substitute for taking precautions when it comes to sex. As a matter of fact, it can be said that there is no substitute for being responsible and making use of condoms or birth-control pills in a prudent way. After all, who wants to have the stress and the repercussions of a potential unwanted pregnancy? It makes quite a bit of sense to take some extra care so that there is no need for anxiety, as it isn’t really required and sex remains as much fun as intended! If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist and ask a free question.

Common Types Of Skin Incisions

MD - Dermatology, MBBS
Dermatologist, Delhi
Common Types Of Skin Incisions

Ideally, surgical incisions are primarily designed to allow easy access to the desired areas in addition to possibilities of extension, if required. Further, they should be designed to split muscles rather than cut them, with minimal scarring along with the aim of boosting regenerative and healing qualities.

Incisions can be classified under these three groups; Vertical, Transverse and Oblique incisions.

  • Vertical incision

1. Midline incision: Almost all abdominal incisions can be performed using this technique. Starting from the midline of the abdomen, it can extend all the way down to the umbilicus.

Advantages:
a) Minimal blood loss
b) Minimal nerve injury
c) Minimal muscle injury

Disadvantage:
a) Midline scar

2. Paramedian incision: This technique provides more laterality to midline incisions, allowing access to such lateral organs such as spleen, kidney and adrenals.

Advantages:
a) Easy access to lateral structures
b) Closure between incisions in anterior and posterior sheath is more secure
c) Rectus muscle remains undivided

Disadvantages:
a) More time consuming
b) Difficulty in extension
c) Can result in atrophy of the muscle

3. Mayo-Robson incision: This incision is typically a paramedian incision, but which bend towards the xiphoid process and consequently allows for a larger and wider opening.

  • Transverse incision

1. Transverse incision: This type of incision is made just above the umbilicus, and can dissect either one of the rectal muscles.

Advantages:
a) Least amount of pain and damage
b) Muscular segments can be reattached
c) Easier access to upper GI structures

Disadvantages:
a) Limited lateral access
b) Higher risk of wound infections

2. Subcostal incision: Also referred to as the Kocher subcostal incision, this type of incision starts from the midline and runs parallel to the costal margin. A double Kocher incision is known as a rooftop of Chevron incision and allows for access to the esophagus, kidney, stomach and liver. The Mercedes incision is yet another variant, characterized by a vertical incision from the rooftop incision to form the shape of a Mercedes sign.

Advantages:
a) Heals faster
b) Less risk of post-operative complications

Disadvantage:
a) Lengthy and time-consuming

  • Oblique incisions

They are also known as Thoracoabdominal incisions, these incisions may either be situated in the RUQ or LUQ. They provide entry to the liver, lungs and spleen, as well as to the stomach and esophagus.

  • Laparoscopic incision

This technique comprises of tiny cuts in the skin that allow laparoscopic tools and instrument access into the abdominal cavity

After how many days of periods it is very safe to do sex without any risk of pregnancy.

After how many days of periods it is very safe to do sex without any risk of pregnancy.
The menstrual cycle is the time from the first day of your period to the first day of your next period; for most women, that is about 28 days. About 12-14 days before your period begins, you are most fertile. This is when you ovulate, or release an egg. This is when you are most likely to become pregnant.

Avoid Sunlight

Stay away from direct sunlight. Exposure to too much sunlight can be harmful to the skin. You probably already know that it can cause skin cancer, but did you know that it can exacerbate acne.

If you miss your menses by 7 days then only you can check for pregnancy. Before that it will not come positive even if you r pregnant. Menses can be delayed normally also with hormonal changes.

For weight loss you definitely need to streamline your lifestyle by any modification that it may require like altering eating pattern, exercise and stress relief. The real need for weight loss is purely motivation from your end. Incase you are interested in getting professional help on your diet pls feel free to consult me privately online.

As per your HSG report your both the tubes are blocked, so the best treatment for you to conceive is though IVF. You can go for re canalization also if there is possibility, but after that chances of ectopic pregnancy are more also the tubes may re-block with due course of time
