You wait till your next cycle. If you don't get your periods by the end of this month please conduct a home pregnancy test on first urine sample of the day. Other wise if you are anxious you can go for serum beta hcg test as early as 26-26th june. This is a blood test done in labs. The report if more than 25-50 units indicate positive results. Lower than 5 units rules out pregnancy for sure.

Congratulations for losing the weight. Normally the interval between two menses counting from 1st day of menses to that of the next, is about 21-35 days. If your menstrual cycle length on an average is in this range it is normal. Menstrual cycles occur due to a complex interaction between the hormones released from the brain with the effect they have on the ovaries and uterus. Menstrual cycle length can be changed by thoughts, and some emotional events like exams, stressful events, birth, death in family etc you have been suspected to have pcod and this is a very common finding nowadays. Pcod is not an unsurmountable disease, and it can be helped with medicines and some lifestyle modification. During pcod the body's chemical capacity to utilise glucose is altered, and hence there is a cascade of events like weight gain, irregular menses, acne and darkening of skin etc. Weight gain is crucial factor. You have been experiencing weight gain too. The best way to curb this disease is to control weight using a multi modal approach like - diet -exercise - medicines. The weight loss that you have achieved is good, keep the effort on so visit a good dietician and chart out a healthy diet, do regular cardiovascular exercises which help in burning the excess fat thats accumulated as excess weight in body. If your weight goes down by even 5 kg, you will experience a good regularisation of your menstrual cycle on it's own, without resorting to any medications. At 27, if you are married and desire to have a child then suitable medicines cna be given to help you to have ovulation. This will cure the pcod too if you are not married or are married and do not wish to conceive then some different tablets can be given to you to prevent the pcod from becoming worse and to regularise your cycles. Of course we can give medicines to help patients with pcod, but they are not the only factor that can regulate this disease. Life style modification is the cornerstone in management of pcod.

Sex karne k baad periods let hona kya pregnancy ka symptom h? please give me answer as soon as possible.
Most important symptom of pregnancy is missed period. There r other symptoms but all of them appear 2 weeks after the missed period. Those r nausea, vomiting, breast fullness and increased urination. If you have a missed period then you should get urine pregnancy test done at home after 7 days of missed period to confirm it. Menses can also be missed by hormonal changes.

I have shown left ovary cyst of 25x25 mm. In my ultrasound report. I do not understand. What is it. Is it dangerous. Medicines are enough or should its oppression is available.

Cysts are thin walled sacs containing fluid. These usually develop in the ovary anytime in a women's life time. These are usually harmless unless they are more than 5 cm in diameter. At 41, you should not worry much about these cysts. Get a check up done by a gynecologist who may advice you to undergo another ultrasound after your menses and if these cysts disappear, you are relieved. They need to be operated only when they cause immense pain, or have hemorrhage in them or grow rapidly. Oral contraceptive pills are known to supress the formation of such cysts. so if you want a contraception you can use them for both contraception and its benefits to cyst supression

Things to Know Before Vascular Lesion Treatment

Things to Know Before Vascular Lesion Treatment

Cutaneous vascular lesions are the most common birthmarks found in children. Flat vascular lesions have a tendency to persist, but raised vascular lesions, called hemangiomas may involute gradually. They are the result of several or huge vessels that are formed underneath the skin and can lead to complications like pain, bleeding, cosmesis or disfigurement. It is necessary to seek treatment for both medical and cosmetic reasons.

Cutaneous vascular malformations are best treated by laser surgery and it is effective sometimes for cosmetic reasons. Hemangiomas may need surgery for residual lesions after involution of the lesion. Use of laser surgery, successfully can help in eliminating certain targets (chromophores) within your skin by putting into use the beam of requisite wavelength, energy setting and pulse duration. Initially these caused serious side-effects like scarring of the skin or permanent dyspigmentation but after the development of photothermolysis technique, the side effects were less seen.

Things to keep in mind before lesion treatment:
The main forms of treatment include laser therapy. Surgery is less used at present as it poses the risk for hemorrhage. The patient should be aware of a few things before going through the treatment procedures.

  1. Cutaneous vascular malformations are best treated by laser surgery can be effective sometimes for cosmetic reasons hemangiomas may need surgery for residual lesions after involution of the lesion.
  2. Laser therapy can treat vascular lesions, such as telangiectasias or spider veins, port wine stain, birthmarks and strawberry hemangiomas. The laser is safer and more effective because it proves to be useful in treating the blood vessels of a lesion without affecting the surrounding tissues.
  3. The patient may experience temporary discoloration of the skin surrounding the treatment site. This blue green discoloration is known as purpura and it usually fades within a week.
  4. The laser therapy is more effective in case of people who have a lighter skin color. In case of heavily tanned or deeply pigmented skin, the laser light may not be able to reach the surface of the lesion.
  5. A topical antibiotic in the form of an ointment or cream may be required by some patients after the treatment.

10 Tips to 'Beat the Heat'

BHMS
Homeopath, Sindhudurg
10 Tips to 'Beat the Heat'

1) Recognize the early warning signs of dehydration.

These can include dark yellow urine, loss of energy, dizziness, loss of coordination, cramps, headaches, or unusual fatigue. If left untreated, more extreme symptoms can occur.

2) Allow for acclimation.

Acclimation is the body's adaptation to a hot environment. Slowly increase practice intensity and duration over the first two weeks of training. Most cases of heat illness occur in the first 2 to 3 days of training.

3) Drink up.

Once acclimated, fluid intake needs to be greater because sweat losses will be higher.

4) Have fluids within arm's reach.

Fluids should be easily accessible during workouts, practices and games.

5) Don't rely on thirst.

Drink during exercise to minimize

6) Favor sports drinks over water.

Research demonstrates that the carbohydrate in sports drinks fuels muscle 2,3,4,5 and sodium encourages voluntary drinking and promotes hydration.1,6,7

7) Drink it. Don't pour it.

Pouring fluid over your head may feel great but won't help restore body fluids or lower body temperature.

8) Exercise in the morning or evening.

This is when the weather is coolest. Also, avoid the direct sun to minimize radiant heat from the sun and hot playing surfaces.

9) Dress for the weather.

Keeping cool in hot weather means wearing fewer clothes and frequently removing gear like helmets during breaks.

10) Break it up.

Increase the frequency and duration.

How can I know my vagina is long? because he feels my vagina is deep because he is not able to feel sucked in the vagina. please help.

Washing genitals immediately after intercourse may be one of the reason for failing to conceive. Ask her to lie down with crossed legs for about 10-15 min after intercourse. If the menstrual cycle is normal, time period between 12th to 18th day have more chances of pregnancy.
