She should have an ultrasound examination of her uterus and adnaexe to find out any pathology. Even if comes out to be normal she needs to consult a doctor for hormone therapy, if needed.

Hello, yes, bleeding during early pregnancy should not be taken lightly. Pregnancy test and sonogram should be done to find out the cause.

Is the weight is one of the causes for irregular menses and blood flow is not clear it like blackish type.

Is the weight is one of the causes for irregular menses and blood flow is not clear it like blackish type.
Yes, most of the over weight women faces irregular menses. The reason being, more weight causes increased secretion of s. Testosterone in the body which causes irregular menses. Losing a considerable amount of weight can cause the period to become scanty, heavy, shorter or longer than normal. It may also cause a woman to suffer from an imbalance in hormones, which can directly cause the irregularity. This is a normal color change. It happens when the blood is older and not being expelled from the body quickly.

Hi. After 4th month of my first delivery for the first time I suffered from sever lower abdominal pain and body pain during periods. Can you suggest any pain killer for it.

DGO, MBBS

Post delivery when the menstrual cycles start, the cycles can be anovulatory in the beginning which can make the cycles long, heavy and sometimes painful. If the cycles continue to be the same way, consult a gynaecologist and get yourself treated.

Home Remedies for Indigestion
Indigestion, also known by the medical term dyspepsia, is due to a problem in the secretion of digestive juices in the stomach. Usually indigestion occurs after eating spicy or fatty foods or overeating.

It can also be triggered or made worse due to gastroesophageal reflux disease (gerd), irritable bowel syndrome, stress or anxiety, obesity, ulcers, stomach infection, thyroid disease, smoking and certain medications.

Some symptoms of indigestion are bloating, gas, growling stomach, abdominal pain, burning sensation in the upper abdomen, acidic taste and vomiting.

You can easily get relief from indigestion symptoms using ingredients from your pantry. For instance, sipping a little water at the first sign of indigestion can give you some relief as it helps increase the gastric ph.

Trying to conceive past 4 months 23 years old, this month had few symptoms but landed up having late period after 33 days, I always have a regular cycle of 28 days. What to do?

4 months time is not the sufficient time to get worried. Some times it takes longer to conceive naturally. So relax and not need to worry as of now. You need to keep trying. A consultation with gynaecologist should help. Please note that you can not predict a time frame and sometimes it takes time to conceive. Have patience and here are some tips which can help: tip #1: the biggest secret to getting pregnant faster is knowing when you ovulate (release an egg from your ovary). Think of the egg as a bull's-eye and the sperm as arrows. One of the arrows has to hit the bull's-eye in order for you to get pregnant. If you notice that you have irregular periods over the course of several months, pinpointing ovulation could be difficult. Ask your doctor for advice. Tip #2: once you know when your egg will be released from your ovary, you can plan to have sex during your most fertile days: from three days before ovulation through the day of ovulation. (starting a little sooner can't hurt; some women have gotten pregnant from sex that happened six days before they ovulated.) if you have a regular cycle of 28 days, days 12 to 16 days are said to be a woman's most fertile period counting from the first day of cycle. Tip #3: sperm have their best shot at fertilizing an egg when they're healthy, strong, and plentiful. Several things can help your partner get his sperm supply in fighting shape: - cut back on alcohol (studies show that drinking daily can reduce testosterone levels and sperm counts and raise the number of abnormal sperm) - quit tobacco and recreational drugs (these can cause poor sperm function) - eat enough of certain key nutrients like zinc, folic acid, calcium, and vitamins c and d, that help create plentiful, strong, wiggly sperm - avoid hot tubs, saunas, and hot baths, since heat kills sperm.

As she already had menses after the sex and i-pill she is not pregnant. Menses can come irregular or less because of ipill. But this problem is temporary and will be cured automatically next month.

Hello four months is a too short period to declare infertility. Wait for some more time for conception. If you don't conceive after 5-6 mths, get all investigations and sonogram done to rule out any problem.

Hi, you need to see a gynaecologist and get examined and investigated, both of you. And that time you get counselling done regarding fertile period and how to go about it. Keep menstrual diary and calculate length of cycles. Minus 18 days from shortest cycle and 11 days from longest cycle. The period will show fertile period. or simply use I-can strips around day 13,14 of period to check ovulation and you can have timed intercourse. This you can try for 3-6months if everything is normal. All the Best! (And please avoid junk food,spirits and tobacco, If using )

Anal sex will predispose your wife for fissures , piles etc and its an unnatural way of sex and can apply lidocaine ointment for lubrication over the penis for normal sex
