You are suffering from dysmenorrhoea which should be initially treated with meftal spas three times a day during menses. If the pain is too severe and not controlled by medicines then you would benefit by getting ultrasound done which can find ovarian cyst or endometriosis or fibroids.

Normal rate of weight gain is about half kilo per week. Take iron, calcium and protein supplements regularly. If all your blood tests are normal, do a repeat sonography and check for interval growth of foetus. Always check weight from the same weighing machine.

yes in pregnancy avoid chicken,fish and papaya Avoid soft cheeses with a white-mould rind such as brie, camembert and goat's cheese, or soft cheese with blue mould such as Roquefort, Danish blue, Gorgonzola. This is because of the risk of infection from listeria, which can cause miscarriage and stillbirth. Hard cheeses are fine as they do not provide the right soft environment for listeria to grow. Other types of cheeses should be fine but check that they are made with pasteurised milk. Goat and sheep cheeses are often unpasteurised. Don't drink unpasteurised milk..

Hi me and my gf want to have sex without any precautions. Can you say me the exact what days after or before period to have a sex. Without getting pregnancy.

If she has regular cycles than 9 days from the day of start of menses and 10 days before the next cycle date is usually considered safe. But this is not 100% safe also, as sometimes ovulation occurs late also in few cases. So best is to use protection.

The success rate of IVF is 30-50%. So, it may fail, especially at 37 years. So, after detailed work up, you may consider ovum donation with IVF

Hello doctor, my wife is a depression patient & she is taking medicine viz. Peri Cr 12.5mg & clonax 0.25mg once a day. Now she is around 12 weeks pregnant. We are worried about, are these medicines safe at this stage for my wife as well as for our baby.

Hi, good presence of mind to confirm risks of medications! Congratulations! Clonax 0.25mg needs to be immediately stopped as it can be harmful to growing baby. Pari-CR is NOT ENTIRELY safe, but depending upon your wife's symptom improvement & severity of her depressive illness. It can be continued with strict observation like 2 monthly ultrasound & some other blood tests. So contact your Ob/Gynecologist & discuss about these tests & your wife's current condition. Also keep your wife's Psychiatrist informed about her pregnancy & current status as Depression tends to flair up during last 2 months of pregnancy or immediately post delivery. You can also contact me for further help. Good Luck!

Hi. At your age it's best to get it removed surgically. Medicines will only control the bleeding and offer temporary relief and the problem will recur as soon as you stop the medicines.

You should talk to her weather she not suffering any medical condition or suffering any other complication. May be extra marital do not mind but you may initiate a probe on all angles at least why she not agree on intimacy with husband. Dialogue is the best way to resolve the issue.

It not advisable to do any surgery in first trimester of pregnancy, Given the risks, any surgery during pregnancy is generally avoided. But if the inflammation is severe, if there's an infection, or if the colic is acute, an operation may be necessary to prevent more serious complications. If you need gallbladder surgery, it will probably be done laparoscopically. In general, the goal of treatment during pregnancy is to reduce the symptoms and complications, and then treat the disease itself after pregnancy. If you had gallbladder disease that was controlled during pregnancy and no surgery was required, it's important to have a follow-up evaluation. Symptoms can occur in the postpartum period or later in life, so have an evaluation when you're not in pain.

Hi lybrate-user no. It does not. And its a sensitive area. Get yourself examined by your doc and get appropriate cream and medications for the infection.

If it is within 7 weeks of pregnancy, then it can be terminated by medicines only. Medicines can be prescribed by doctor only, so you need to visit gynecologist. If it is beyond 7 weeks the it needs surgical abortion for which she needs to be admitted in the hospital for 4-6 hrs.
