Now a days pregnancy kit for testing is available at every pharmaceutical out lets. I advice to take that kit and perform test at your home. By following the procedure given on that. If it shows two lines on that kit then it is positive. But as you are saying she consumed I pill within 72 hours and she bled on 13 th of november. She may not be pregnant for sure. But still if you have got doubts. Please follow the above said method.

Your menstrual cycle is still maturing and it will get regularised when the hormones in your body fall into a regular pattern. Right now this happens due to immaturity of the hormone cycle which makes the lining of the uterus fall over a month. Then in the next month the lining is not yet developed well so there is a gap in menses and as soon as it overcomes a limit, it starts. Usually the problems are due to this. But in some women there could be thyroid or other hormone problems so do visit a gynecologist and get evaluated by a check up and some tests like hormone levels and ultrasound.

Signs, Symptoms and Diagnosis of Jaundice

MBBS, MD - General Medicine
General Physician, Gurgaon
Signs, Symptoms and Diagnosis of Jaundice

Jaundice is a medical condition, which is characterized by the yellow coloring of the skin and eyes. It generally occurs when there is an excess of bilirubin in your system. Bilirubin is a yellow pigment formed in the liver by the breakdown of red blood cells. It normally gets discharged by the liver along with other dead red blood cells. So if you are suffering from jaundice, it usually indicates that you have some serious problems regarding the functioning of your liver, pancreas, or gallbladder.

Signs and symptoms:
Signs and symptoms commonly associated with jaundice include:

  1. Yellow-tinted eyes and skin
  2. The whites of your eyes may turn orange or brown in color
  3. Dark urine
  4. Pale stools
  5. High fatigue and vomiting (in severe cases)

Causes:
Jaundice, as mentioned above, occurs when there is an excess of bilirubin and the liver is incapable of metabolizing it along with the old red blood cells. It is more common in infants than in adults, because their livers are not fully developed. However, it is also a frequent occurrence in adults and could be a potential sign of any of the following problems:

  1. Liver infection
  2. Scarring of the liver, or cirrhosis
  3. Hepatitis
  4. Alcohol abuse
  5. Liver cancer
  6. Gallstones
  7. Pancreatic cancer
  8. Blood disorders, like hemolytic anemia
  9. Parasites in the liver
  10. Abnormal reactions to or overdose of medication

Diagnosis:
Diagnostic tests may include:

  1. Jaundice is diagnosed primarily by taking blood tests, to help measure the amount of bilirubin as well as to trace the presence of other diseases like Hepatitis.
  2. Liver function tests in order to make comparisons between levels of certain proteins and enzymes when the liver is in good shape and when it is damaged.
  3. Liver biopsies, where samples of liver tissue are first extracted and later examined under a microscope.
  4. Imaging studies, consisting of abdominal ultrasounds, computed tomography scans and magnetic resonance images (MRI) tests.

hello, please take 3-4 litres of water daily and get a urine culture done and most common cause of UTI in pregnancy is E.coli which can be treated easily with some available pregnancy safe antibiotics. Please review with reports for prescription if needed. regards

In case of a difficult vaginal delivery or forceps application on lack of calcium or rest pelvic pain may occur. Breast pump is harmless. Sex should b avoided 6-8 months after delivery, and be always be accompanued by protection

lybrate-user you need to get admitted in a hospital that deals with high risk pregnancy case s. To control sugars one can adjust doses of plain insulin as per the blood sugar levels addition of long acting insulin also may be require. It goes without saying that you need a good diet chart. The hosp needs to have good nursery back up too in case delivery has to be done earlier.

One year is enough time. So, you and your wife should consult your gynaecologist to have some basic work up. There may be problem in the female or the male or the both. Even sometimes no problems may be found. But please remember, as you already have a son, your chance of having baby is quite good. And try to have regular physical relationship between 12-16 days of the menstrual period. All the best.

No, its not tb treatment that might be causing trouble in conceiving, but there are chances when you had tb (i guess it was lungs tb as you have not mentioned that), it might have also involved the genital system causing problems now. Take consultation from an obstretician/gynaecologist dealing with infertility cases for proper evaluation.

I am 48 years old women. Fibroids exist in uterus, sent for test and the report is negative. There is a continuous back ache. Are fibroids harmful in future. Request advise me.

Diploma in homeopathy, B. Sc

Any growth even if benign is concern causing. Cause for back ache are a million starting with posture and through to intestine swelling (crohn's disease), mental stress, etc. Stress can cause your muscles to tense-up and if they happen to be your back muscles you are in shit-street. I can give it a go with homeopathy and judging by the results I have had with homeopathy, i'd say your chances are worth a toss. But i'll need your total faith and commitment and I won't do it for free. For my deep investigations i'll have to charge you - not much just rs 700/

Dear lybrate-user, you have not clarified about your periods. If you are having regular periods, you are safe and an occassional nausea could be because of acidity.
