Go for diet and exercises. Maintain your BMI at 23 (which is currently above 25) and you may not need any medicine for PCOD.

Hi doctor. I am 19 years old female. My periods have always been normal until I missed in the month of April. My last period was on 11 march 2016. I had a lot of exam stress so I attributed it to the same. However I did an ultrasound which did not show any abnormality in my ovaries whatsoever. Then on 4 june 2016 I took tab estrogen and progesterone and got my period on 10 june 2016. I again missed my cycle in july and went for a hormonal profile which showed that my LH waz 26.47 and FsH 7.07 and PRl 28.09. My endocrinologist said you have PCOS although I do not have any other symptom other than a bit of weight gain. He started me on metformin 500 mg and gave diving 10 for 7 days to induce periods which I did not get even after waiting for 15 days. So today I went to an ob/gyn and he said to increase metformin to 1 g and take krimson 35 for a month or two and check. I am really worried. Is this a very big issue? Will it affect my fertility in any way? Web makes PCOS look like something very evil. Please help.

MISS EVEN IF YOU HAVE PCOD THAT MEANS THAT YOU ARE NOT OVULATING REGULARY AND HENCE YOU R MISSING PERIODS. THERE IS NO POINT IN TAKING METFORMIN OR ANY OTHER DRUGS. PCOS IS NOT A DISEASE BUT A CHANGE THAT HAS HAPPENED BECAUSE OF DERANGED LIFESTYLE. YOU DONT NEED TREATMENT IS BECAUSE YOU HAVE INCIDENTLY FOUND THAT AND RIGHTLY AS YOU SAY YOU DONT HAVE ANY SYMPTOMS. EVEN IF YOU TAKE TABLETS YOUR PERIODS WOULD COME REGULARLY TILL YOU ARE ON TABLETS AND ONCE YOU STOP THEM THE PERIODS WOULD RETURN BACK TO THE ORIGINAL STATE. I WOULD ADVICE NOT TO GET BOTHERED BY THE PERIODS. IF YOU DOINT HAVE THEM FOR 2 TO 3 MONTHS THEN YOU CAN TAKE TABLETS. WHATEVER TREATMENT I GIVE IS AFTER MARRIAGE

Vaginal Bleeding During Early Pregnancy

Vaginal Bleeding During Early Pregnancy

During the first 20 weeks of pregnancy, 20 to 30% of women have vaginal bleeding. In about half of these women, the pregnancy ends in a miscarriage. If miscarriage does not occur immediately, problems later in the pregnancy are more likely. For example, the baby's birth weight may be low, or the baby may be born early (preterm birth), be born dead (stillbirth), or die during or shortly after birth. If bleeding is profuse, blood pressure may become dangerously low, resulting in shock.

The amount of bleeding can range from spots of blood to a massive amount. Passing large amounts of blood is always a concern, but spotting or mild bleeding may also indicate a serious disorder.

The most common cause is a miscarriage. There are different degrees of miscarriage (also called spontaneous abortion). A miscarriage may be possible or certain to occur (inevitable abortion). All of the contents of the uterus may be expelled or not (incomplete abortion). The contents of the uterus may be infected before, during, or after the miscarriage (septic abortion). The fetus may die in the uterus and remain there (missed abortion). Any type of miscarriage can cause vaginal bleeding during early pregnancy.

The most dangerous cause of vaginal bleeding is rupture of an abnormally located (ectopic) pregnancy - one that is not in its usual place in the uterus - for example, one that is in a fallopian tube.

Another possibly dangerous but less common cause is rupture of corpus luteum cyst. After an egg is released, the structure that released it (the corpus luteum) may fill with fluid or blood instead of breaking down and disappearing as it usually does. If an ectopic pregnancy or a corpus luteum cyst ruptures, bleeding may be profuse, leading to shock.

Warning signs:

In pregnant women with vaginal bleeding during early pregnancy, the following symptoms are cause for concern:

  1. Fainting, light-headedness, or a racing heart—symptoms that suggest very low blood pressure
  2. Loss of large amounts of blood or blood that contains tissue or large clots
  3. Severe abdominal pain that worsens when the woman moves or changes positions
  4. Fever, chills, and a vaginal discharge that contains pus mixed with the blood

When to see a doctor: Women with warning signs should see a doctor immediately. Women without warning signs should see a doctor within 48 to 72 hours.

Headache: Facts & Ways to Deal With It

MD - Medicine, MBBS

Headache: Facts & Ways to Deal With It

Headaches can be troublesome and hamper the day to day activities. It does not let you concentrate on anything and the simmering pain can be irritating.

Headache is a pain in any part of the head, including the scalp, upper neck, face (including the eye area). A primary headache is caused by problems with or overactivity of pain-sensitive structures in your head. A primary headache isn't a symptom of an underlying disease.

The three most common causes of a primary headache are:

  1. Migraine
  2. Cluster headache
  3. Tension-type headache

Some primary headaches can be triggered by lifestyle factors, including:

  1. Changes in sleep or lack of sleep
  2. Skipped meals
  3. Certain foods, such as processed meats that contain nitrates
  4. Alcohol, particularly red wine
  5. Poor posture
  6. Stress

How to deal with headache:

  1. Find your Triggers: Find and limit your triggers like certain food types as well as stress and certain seasonal changes. Stepping out in the summer with an umbrella and avoiding caffeine or too much of chocolate and cheese can also help in alleviating the pain. Stress is also a major factor that contributes to headaches and should be avoided in order to prevent or stop the pain.
  2. A Soothing Break: Find a quiet place with dim lighting to take a break that should ideally last at least half an hour to one hour, or even more. This will help in diminishing and removing the pain. You can also use a cold compress and get yourself a massage.
  3. Take an Over the Counter Drug: Taking an over the counter drug for instant pain relief can stop the pain and give temporary or long term relief, depending on the kind of headache you are experiencing. It is advisable to speak with a doctor before taking any kind of drug.

Before 3 months I was suffering from pcos. I have got a double chin. And fat chicks how can I reduce it.
A sustained effort for 5-6 months with proper diet and exercise. You can join a gym or learn yoga under an expert. Diet should be proper. If you are interested, please contact me.

Here I am seeing many posts by my beloved colleagues referring to surgery for some minute problems which I want to draw there as well as my patients attention that apart from surgery there is another pathy in our medical science which has a great power to heal and cure without scissors i.e. homoeopathy.
Homoeopathy can cure some problems without going to surgery like
1. Fibradenoma
2. Ganglion, cyst
3. Benign tumours
4. Piles and haemorrhages
5. Sexual problems
6. Hormonal issues
7. Menstrual problems
8. Skin problems
9. Renal stones (upto a certain limit)
10. Gastric problems
Moreover now a days homoeopathy is used widely in our country and abroad like france, uk, germany etc for getting a palliation and controlling the cancer without highly side effective medications.
So try homoeopathy once before taking the ultimate decision about your body.
Health is wealth so preserve it not ruin it.
