I have sever headache after periods (M. C.) and bleeding doesn't stop even after 2 weeks aftr periods. Headache does not go away with any tablet. During day time its very painful but during night it becomes a little low. please tell me what to do.

Headache does ...
You have 2 problems: headache after menses and excess bleeding lasting for 2 weeks. Usually menses last for 5-7 days and the bleeding stops in its own. If your bleeding is continued for 2 weeks, it is more and you need to consult a gynecologist for the problem. Tests and ultrasound may be advised to rule out thyroid disease, etc and uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts etc only after knowing these can medicines be given. Also the headache is due to the hormones or it could be a migraine. Your gynec may help you with it or refer it to a physician.

I have thyroid since 8 months and I have very irregular periods and I am trying to conceive what to do?

I have thyroid since 8 months and I have very irregular periods and I am trying to conceive what to do?
Lybrate-user, hypothyroidism causes irregularity of menstrual periods. But if is well controlled, then all the symptoms disappear including menstrual irregularities. To achieve good control tsh levels should be between 3 to 4 milli units when on treatment. Further, if conception is desired then tsh levels have to be brought down to 2 to 3 milli units/ml. Otherwise conception may not occur, if occurs, fetal development may be affected and pregnancy outcome may not be good. So please see that tsh levels are brought down to 2 to 3 milli units even before you conceive. If you have any doubts please come back. Best of luck.

In pregnancy please do not do vigorous walking or exercise. Do brisk walking only. You will get around 11 kgs extra weight in pregnancy which is normal.

You need to consult your gynaec as it is important to establish a diagnosis. Any infection needs to be ruled out as it may lead to preterm labour .!

It is dangerous to take these drugs without a GYN checkup. The dose schedule, complications, side effects and success rate varies a lot. Correct advice can only be given after a complete checkup. Do not wait!

Do a urine pregnancy test to rule out possibility of pregnancy. If positive consult a gynaecologist for help. If negative wait for a week or so for periods to start.

Cool Off This Summer with Ayurveda

Cool Off This Summer with Ayurveda

Aren't you scared of summer heat, skin eruptions, sweat and thirst? 
Overcome all summer problems with these cool solutions offered by ayurveda. Get acquainted with ayurveda and beat the summer heat before it beats you.

The heat of the summer seeps into our system, saps away our strength and leaves us dehydrated. Ancient indian scriptures advice an ayurvedic regimen for all, which helps to avoid dehydration and to maintain vitality.

What to avoid during summer months:

  • Strenuous exercises
  • Going out in afternoons when the heat is at its peak
  • Pungent, sour and salty foods
  • Foods that produce heat within the body
  • Alcohol

Technology might help you to stay cool inside your home or office but you will eventually have to face the heat outside. According to ayurveda, the ancient science of natural health,
When things are heating up outside, the key to balance is to find ways to cool down inside i.e. physically, mentally and emotionally.


Tips to maintain balance between mind and body during summer:

1. Cooling baths
A cooling bath is the best way to start a'cool' day. This is the first thing that you do in the morning, so make the best of it. Bathe with cold water.

2. Cooling beverages
Fresh fruit juices and nectars, blended and stored at room temperature, are recommended.

3. Cooling diet
A cooling ayurvedic diet in summer includes a lot of fruits and vegetables that are sweet, juicy, bitter and astringent in nature.

4. Cooling exercise
Swimming is a healthy and wonderful exercise for summer - it's not only cooling and soothing for the body but also helps in toning and strengthening body muscles.

5. Cooling lifestyle
Stress and overwork aggravates the symptoms and overheating effects of summer.

6. Protect yourself from the sun 
You should protect yourself from the sun and refrain from outdoor activities during the hottest part of the day.

I always feel sleepy during class hours. Please help me I want to concentrate in class. I am 17 year old.

Causes, Symptoms and Treatment of Miscarriage

MD
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Causes, Symptoms and Treatment of Miscarriage

A miscarriage is generally characterized by the loss of a fetus before the passage of around one forty days of pregnancy. In medical terminology, a miscarriage is usually referred to as a spontaneous abortion, precisely because it happens spontaneously. According to studies, about 50% of all pregnancies end up in miscarriages and around 80% of miscarriages occur within the first three months of pregnancy. If they happen to occur after the passage of twenty weeks of gestation, they are normally termed as late miscarriages.

Causes:
The most common cause of miscarriages is primarily due to the presence of some fatal or critical genetic problem in the unborn baby, which may or may not be in any way related to the mother. Apart from this, there is a host of other causes which are held responsible for miscarriages. These may include:

  1. Cervical insufficiency (weakness of the cervix)
  2. Infection
  3. Hormonal imbalances
  4. Physical problems in the mother
  5. Medical problems in the mother
  6. Immune system responses
  7. Uterine abnormalities

Symptoms:
Here are a few indicators of a miscarriage:

  1. Bleeding (which can vary from light to heavy bleeding)
  2. Abdominal pain
  3. Weakness
  4. Severe cramps
  5. Fever
  6. Back pain

Treatment:

  1. Treatment of miscarriages normally involves three steps - a pelvic exam, an ultrasound test and blood tests to confirm whether or not it is a miscarriage.
  2. If the miscarriage is complete and yet the uterus is still not emptied of its contents, then it may be necessary for you to undergo a dilation and curettage operation.
  3. If you have gone through multiple miscarriages in the past, then the treatment will probably involve a pelvic ultrasound, a hysterosalpingogram or a hysteroscopy.

Tinospora cordifolia
(giloy, glo, guduchi)

Giloy satva or guduchi satva

It is a very common and economic but wonderful ayurvedic medicine, often neglected by well -to-do people because of mere low cost of the medicine.

It is obtained by extracting starchy content of indian tinospora plant by soaking in water for six to eight hrs, macerated and allowing starchy content to settle down and collected.

This powder has immense curing capabilities. People spend thousands of rupees by way of lab tests, antibiotics when pyrexia of unknown origin (puo) can't be treated. Similarly anaemia, jaundice, hyperacidity, polythrist etc are often take long time to recover. It is here that this wonderful gift of nature is very useful. It is a very fine immunity booster.

Nasal bleeding, menorrhagia, rectal bleeding, burning feet and hands can be cured very well with it as also it is useful in pthisis, emaciation and also lowers blood glucose levels.

Giloy satva when combined with chirayata satva (swertia chirata plant) cures toughest of fevers.

Both of above can be given independently or combined. By giving these with water boiled with holy basil leaves (tulasi) make it manifold effective.

Dosage:
Giloy satva - 1/2 gm to 1 gm
Chirayata satva - 1gm to 2 gm

There are many more uses of such simple things. Patients' attendants need little patience. These are non synthesised and non toxic naturals. Hence little slow. Can be given with any other medicine also. These do not counteract.

People should plant giloy and tulasi at common places in this rainy season so that everyone can benefit when needed. Can be grown in pots also.

I am 28 years old married. Me and wife are trying for a baby. Whenever we do the intercourse, y sperms are coming out of the vagina? And no pregnancy signs even after that. However it is normal that sperms are coming out. Then why my wife getting pregnant? What needs to be done? please suggest.

It is the extra semen and not the sperms which come out and that is normal. Regarding pregnancy, I don't know for how long you are trying. If it is only 3-4 months, don't worry, just try in most fertile days of the cycle which are from 12th -16th day , counting from first day of menses

First do the urine pregnancy test. Periods can be missed because of pregnancy or unwanted 72 or because of anxiety. If urine test negative you can wait or get one blood test beta hcg done .it is confirmatory test tov rule out pregnancy.
