May try this treatment 1-rajpravartani vati 250 mg one tablet twice in a day with water 2- ashokarishta 15 ml twice with water after food 3- amla powder 6 gm at bed time with warm water continue for two months and give feed back after one month, may require some change in medicine.

My height 4.6, I am pregnant 5th month, all my reports are good, many members said that there is no possibility of free delivery as you are too short, is it is correct.

Homeopath, Chennai
Dear lybrate user try duck walk and squatting exercise, also be more active. Not vigorous exercise but gentle, eat more vegetables and fruits, drink plenty of water, enough sleep 8-9 hrs, maintain your weight so that baby size remains normal, a bigger baby poses problem, homoeopathic medicines also can be taken safely to promote a normal delivery depending on your symptoms, take care.

I am thirteen weeks pregnant now. I am suffering with diabetes. Pre pregnancy diabetes. I am taking insulin actrapid 30 units three times before d meals and glycomet500 mg after breakfast and dinner. Still my sugars are not under complete control. I am following diet also. Can you suggest the ways to control sugar levels? Will diabetes cause any harm to my baby. Tell me about complications. FBS between 83 to 98 Pp between 90 to 170. It is raising and coming down. Why?is there any danger to both of us. Thank you.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. As you have diabetes before pregnancy, it is essential to control it strictly with Insulin as being done now. Ideally blood glucose has to be maintained between 90 to 120 mg all through the day. (Fasting and PP). Your fasting looks good. What may be needed is to increase the Insulin dose pre lunch and Pre dinner by about 2 units. You will have to monitor glucose at least 4 to 6 times a day. Maintain a proper chart of Insulin dose and glucose level. Complications of uncontrolled diabetes are many on pregnancy. Major problems are improper growth of the baby, macrosomia (big baby over 3.5 kgs), unpleasant out comes of pregnancy like miss carriage. If you have any doubts please come back. Thanks.

Dear user. ABORTIONS can be performed as early as an intra-uterine pregnancy can be identified by ultrasound, which is usually about 3-4 weeks after your Last Menstrual Period (LMP). In the first trimester, two options are available: Aspiration is done by a physician in the clinic or the Abortion Pill which you take at home. Do not take any decisions before consulting your gynecologist. Take care.

I have facing the problem that I don't have a baby and my wife has done operation before marriage with me and we went to the shatabdi hospital and doctor said tubelitaion opened now but that is not true and we went to some other doctor they said you have to do the HSG and we done that and in that report its not opened what should we do? Some said us about test tube baby and what is it?

Hi lybrate-user. Once tubal ligation is done it's not easy to undo them. Once the tubes get blocked it's very difficult to open them and most such surgeries fail. Its best you go for ivf if you want to have a baby now.

Dear Doctor My wife was pregnant from last 13 weeks and 4 days with crl 7.4 cm with increased NT 2.9 mm So please give me suggestion.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Kolkata
Although NT appears near the higher side of normal, the risk of problem is less, unless associated with absent nasal bone and other anomalies. You should go for simultaneous blood tests like PAPP-A and hcg for confirmation and also repeat the scan at another centre better trained in fetal scanning within 14 weeks.

I want to know about advantage and disadvantage of garlic and onion .one female patient,(30 y) thyroid gland operation (now she has no gland. Eltroxin 150 was running 1 year but it is now stop for radio iodine ablation after one month. Now totally stop iodine food. So I want to know any problem if she take garlic and onion.

Both are potent antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-fungal.In general, onions and garlic are very health supportive foods. They have been found to help reduce cholesterol, risk of cancer, and support several other body systems that provide us with our vitality. Both foods may have the capacity to improve our diet's blood sugar-regulating ability. Both may also have special antibiotic-type properties. When it comes to our health, both onions and garlic are unique in terms of their sulfur-containing phytonutrients. You'll find unusual combinations of health supportive sulfur compounds in both of these World's Healthiest Foods. Intake of onion induces sulphur in the human body and it mixes up with the gastric juices which results into such mixtures that hamper digestion. Sulphur dioxide dissolves in the body fluid to produce Sulphuric acid. It reduces the pH of the blood lower than 7.4 thus, hindering proper blood circulation.

Can intercourse during pregnancy is allowable? please let me clarify ;wife is 4 month pregnant. please let me know, Thanking you.

General Physician, Gurgaon
Till 7th month it is OK. Care need to be taken to avoid putting weight on her lower abdomen and also when she is not comfortable. Otherwise it is safe and you don't need a condom as pregnancy itself is best Contraceptive Status to a woman!

I have pcos problem. Does it cure by taking pills for an year? or else can I go for homeopathic medicine for permanent solution.

Homeopath, Hyderabad
Pcod nowadays is common problem. Taking pills is not permanent solution. As soon as you stop again it will start. You need to treat it internally through safe medicine as it willact directly on the ovaries. There are many medicines in homoeopathy which can treated safely. Along with it do regularly exercise and avoid high carbohydrate food.

Ectopic Pregnancy: Know The Causes and Its Treatments

IVF Specialist, Delhi
Ectopic Pregnancy: Know The Causes and Its Treatments

In a normal pregnancy, the egg that the ovaries release enters the fallopian tube. If a sperm fertilises it, the fertilised egg attaches itself inside the uterus. However, sometimes the fertilised egg can attach itself outside the uterus. This condition is called ectopic pregnancy.

Ectopic pregnancy can be detected in the first few weeks of the pregnancy itself. If your doctor does discover ectopic pregnancy, you would need immediate medical attention. Ectopic pregnancies can be sad and scary. Fortunately, one ectopic pregnancy doesn't mean you can never conceive again. Many women who lost their first baby to ectopic pregnancy have been able to have a healthy and normal pregnancy the second time around.

The causes of ectopic pregnancy include:

  1. An inflammation or infection of the fallopian tube can lead it to become entirely or partially blocked.
  2. Scar tissue from a surgery or an infection of the fallopian tube may also hinder the movement of the fertilised egg.
  3. Surgery in the tubes or pelvic areas in the past might cause adhesions.
  4. Birth defects or abnormal growths can cause anomalies in the shape of the tube.

These causes are usually followed by certain risk factors, such as:

  • Age (The age group of 35-44 especially)
  • An ectopic pregnancy in the past
  • Previous abdominal or pelvic surgery
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease
  • Several prompted abortions
  • Conceiving with an intrauterine device in place
  • Smoking
  • Endometriosis (growth of uterus lining tissues outside the uterus).
  • Fertility treatments.

The signs and symptoms of ectopic pregnancy include:

  1. Minimal vaginal bleeding
  2. Vomiting and nausea with pain
  3. Pain in the lower abdomen
  4. Sharp cramps in the abdomen
  5. Localised pain (Pain concentrated on one side of your body)
  6. Pain in your neck, rectum or shoulder
  7. Rupture of the fallopian tubes can cause fainting due to the bleeding and pain

The treatment of ectopic pregnancy can be any one of the following:

  1. If the pregnancy has not progressed too far, methotrexate will be administered. This absorbs the pregnancy tissue and can save the fallopian tubes.
  2. The tubes may be removed if they have ruptured or stretched, and have started bleeding.
  3. Laparoscopic surgery (operations performed by making minor incisions) may be performed to remove or repair the tubes and recover the ectopic pregnancy.

Hello, the reasons for amenorrhoea for 4 months can be most likely to be either hypothyroidism, hyperprolactinemia or pcos. These have to be evaluated in detail with a hormonal profile and an ultrasound pelvis. For further discussion you may consult privately, regards.
