Polycystic Ovary Syndrome(PCOS) - Know Everything About It!!

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome(PCOS) - Know Everything About It!!

PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) is also known as PCOD. PCOS is a hormonal and metabolic disorder of women which has negative impact on their cardiovascular and reproductive health. Exact cause of PCOS is not known but both genetic and environmental factors play a role in it's development. It is known to run in families. 

Clinical features of PCOS 

Classically PCOS is described as triad of hyperandrogenemia, anovulatory cycles and polycystic ovaries on ultrasound. Any two of these three clinical features are enough to diagnose condition. 

Common symptoms of PCOS

Symptoms of PCOS are irregular cycles with episodes of heavy bleeding, infertility, thick and dark hair growth over face and trunk, acne, male pattern hair loss over forehead. Many of these girls and women are overweight or obese. People with PCOS are at increased risk of diabetes mellitus and heart diseases. 

Diagnostic tests 

To diagnose PCOS, few blood tests to see your hormone levels and ultrasound scan of pelvis are done. Simultaneously patients need to undergo blood tests to assess their metabolic health and to rule out other hormonal disorders which can have similar clinic presentation as in PCOS. 

Treatment 

Lifestyle modification is first and most important for patients of all age group. They should exercise regularly and maintain normal weight. Then depending on patients symptoms oral tablets are given either to manipulate hormone levels or their action. With treatment, patients have good quality of healthy life. These medicines make menstrual cycle regular, reduce abnormal hair growth over face and trunk, improve glucose tolerance and improve fertility. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Endocrinologist.

Hello, You have to sleep on the left hand side else the uterus may compress the aorta causing decrease blood supply to your child and hence decreased growth. You may place a pillow under your back on the right side so that you don't turn at night.

Why does vaginal pain occur after masturbating for first rime and will it be cured naturally?

It will stop on its own . U dont need any medication for that. If the pain is too severe u can take pain killers. Hymen is torn and vagina is distended that is the reason for pain in ur case.

Dear Lybrate user, It is not clear from your description regarding medicines you are taking. In case you are taking some contraceptive pills for (21 days in a month) then additional intake of pills is not required. Otherwise, one has to take. However, those pills may have interaction with medicines you are taking now.

Less Libido in Females - Causes Behind it!

Less Libido in Females - Causes Behind it!

Loss of sexual desire is more common in women than in men. As many as 3 in 10 women have reduced or limited sexual interest in any kind of sexual activity. While the medical term for this problem is Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder (HSDD), it is generally understood as a loss of libido.

Following are the causes of less libido in females:

1. Hormonal Disorders:

  • Dryness of the vagina and pain during sexual intercourse may affect sexual drive both mentally and physically.
  • After menopause, drop in the count of testosterone hormone also affects sexual drive which can result in loss of libido.
  • With advancing age, the level of androgens decrease, and hence results in a lack of sexual desire.

2. Lifestyle Disorders:

  • In some of the cases, lack of emotional support in a relationship plays a significant role in the loss of libido. Post baby 'coolness' may also act as a driving force for loss in libido.
  • In today's era, changing lifestyle is drastically affecting our lives. Following an unhealthy lifestyle may result in increased weight that may affect self-image, and indirectly may also affect the sexual desire.
  • Stress and job, family pressure and exhaustion may also influence sexual desire of a woman.

3. Medical Disorders:

  • There are conditions such as endometriosis, fibroids and thyroid disorders that may have a negative impact on the sexual drive of a woman.
  • Certain medicines such as antidepressants, oral contraceptives, and medicines that lower blood pressure may also negatively impact the sexual drive in women.

4. Psychological factors:

  • Increasing cases of depression, anxiety, frustration, stress is also an important cause of loss of libido in the contemporary society.
  • After childbirth, new moms tend to suffer from lack of sleep, insufficient lubrication of the vagina and exhaustion, which may affect her sexual desire. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a sexologist.

What is low placenta condition in pregnancy? What should I have precaution about this?

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
What is low placenta condition in pregnancy? What should I have precaution about this?
If the placenta is still lying low in your uterus after you are 20 weeks pregnant, it is called placenta praevia. Even at this stage, the placenta may still move up in time for your baby to be born. By the end of pregnancy, about one in 200 women has placenta praevia to some degree. Most of these are minor cases. If the placenta covers your cervix at the end of your pregnancy, your baby's exit route through your vagina will be blocked. The placenta may be partly covering your cervix (partial placenta praevia) or completely covering it (major placenta praevia).Either way, your baby will need to be born by caesarean section. Some women are more likely to have placenta praevia than others. You are more likely to have the condition if you: have had a caesarean section before or are over 35 yrs of age. You can't do anything to change the position of the placenta. But you can make sure that you stay healthy and well. Eat plenty of nutritious foods, particularly those that are rich in iron. This will reduce your chances of becoming anaemic. If your iron levels are low your doctor or midwife may recommend that you take iron supplements. Having placenta praevia can be worrying for you, particularly if you are waiting to see if your placenta moves up. But there is plenty that can be done to keep you and your baby safe and well.

Actually if this is first pregnancy, she will feel the movement of the baby after or at around 5 to 6th month. As she is not experienced, she can not feel baby's movement just now. And you must go to a gynecologist for regular check ups.

This Cooking Method Could Cut The Calories In Rice By Half

MBBS
General Physician,
This Cooking Method Could Cut The Calories In Rice By Half

I came across this article while browsing internet some times back and I don't remember the source of the page but the tips is worth a try.

 

This Cooking Method Could Cut The Calories In Rice. Carb lovers, have you heard the awesome news? Scientists in Sri Lanka have figured out a simple cooking trick that could potentially slash the calories of rice and other starchy carbs by up to half of their conventionally cooked counterparts. Yes, you read that right: half the calories in the same amount of food. And it's super easy to do with stuff you already have in your kitchen. To try this at home: Add a scant teaspoon of a healthy oil like coconut or olive to the cooking water for every ½ cup of uncooked rice (use 1 cup of water per ½ cup of uncooked rice). Cook rice as you normally would, but then let cool it over night in the fridge, and bam!—you're left with rice that tastes just like rice, but has fewer usable calories. Rice that had been "improved" to produce higher yields, had 10 to 12% fewer calories when cooked via this method. Using this method on traditional heirloom varieties, particularly some varieties of red rice—could result in a calorie reduction of up to 50 to 60%. And yes, even if you reheat your rice, the caloric count won't change. How it happens: The cooling process, along with fat from the oil, increases rice's amount of resistant starch (RS) , an indigestible form of carbs that your small intestine can't break down and convert to glucose. still, the trick may also work for other starchy foods like pasta, beans, cereals such as oatmeal, and tubers like potatoes: A similar study showed that cooking, cooling, and then reheating these foods significantly increases RS levels. Finally, RS isn't just good for cutting calories, either. This magical starch has been linked to improved insulin sensitivity, better gut function and digestion, greater feelings of fullness, and increased fat burn.

We are married couples marriage 7 years back but still don't have baby. My wife was under treatment of IVF in March 2017 but results were negative. Doctors said that HSG report is not OK one fallopian tube is blocked and other one is too weak to conceive or may be partially blocked.

Since your wife has tubal blockage; the possibility of conception is with IVF only. It is unfortunate that she didn't conceive in the first cycle; but not everyone conceives in the first cycle itself. The chance of success in the first cycle is around 50% and it goes upto 85-90% in three cycles. Be patient; be positive- IVF is likely to give you the answer to your problems. Depending on the place/centre and the medications used; IVF costs around 1.5 l per cycle. All the best!

I had done intercourse with my girlfriend so many times without using comdoms. When I am done I teke out my penis and then relise my semen. Is it posible that a girl can get pregnent in this situation?

Diploma in Family Medicine, Fellowship in Diabetology, Diploma in Diabetology, FCCP, MBBS
General Physician,
1. For safe sex without getting pregnant condoms advised. 2. The method you follow is ok, but you will not get the full sexual satisfaction. 3. Only with fear the act of sex is done. Sometimes if the timings slips and semen enters the vagina, pregnancy is definite, if she is in her ovulation stage. Marry soon and enjoy freely.
