I'm on yaz, after taking my last inactive pill tonight, I did not get my period yet. I had unprotected sex two days ago and yesterday I drank an emergency contraceptive (norlovo). I'm freaking out. Will it be normal to skip a period because of the timing, do I continue tomorrow with my active pills? Do I need to worry about pregnancy?

Take yaz as usual. As you have taken emergency pill you may have delayed periods. But for contraception you must continue the yaz. You can have unprotected intercouse when you are taking yaz even when you are taking the inactive pills.

Hello Dear,Periods occur when the egg formed during each menstrual cycle in the female body is not fertilized and hence ejected out of the reproductive system along with blood and several other tissue cells. The duration of each menstrual cycle is about 28 days Most women will experience their monthly period right from the time they are 13 to the time they are 50. For many women, their monthly period is nothing more than an annoyance; but other women may suffer some problems. Visit us at www.Malhotraayurveda.Com

It is known that pre coital secretions can contain sperm. Hence there is always a possibility although very small. If the girl misses her periods please do a pregnancy test. Also if it is within 72 hours of unprotected sex please have some emergency contraception tablets.

Hello after 6 months, normally there should be no problem with past surgery. The pain can be controlled by anti-inflammatory medicine. However get a checkup done to rule out any problem with the stitches.

All About Uterine Prolapse

DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology), Fellowship in Minimal Access Surgery, MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist,
All About Uterine Prolapse

Your uterus is held in place by ligaments, tissues and pelvic muscles. The prolapse occurs when the ligaments or muscles weaken, and thus they can no longer support the uterus. The uterus slips or sags from its usual position into the birth canal (vagina).

Uterine prolapse could be complete or incomplete:

  • If the uterus partly sags into the vagina, the prolapse is incomplete.
  • If the uterus falls, and tissues are found to be resting in the vagina's exterior, the prolapse is termed 'complete'

Type of Prolapse:

  1. Cystocele: It is characterized by the herniation (bulging) of the vaginal wall caused by the bladder; it leads to urination problems
  2. Enterocele: It is characterized by the bulging on the vaginal wall caused by the bowel; it leads to backache
  3. Rectocele: If the rectum pushes into the vaginal wall, it makes movement in bowels difficult

Causes:
Uterine prolapse can be caused by any of the following factors:

  • Normal childbirth through the vagina weakens muscles
  • Pelvic muscles weaken with age
  • Tissues weaken after menopause and oestrogen loss
  • Chronic cough, constipation, pelvic tumours or abdominal fluid accumulation puts a lot of pressure on the abdomen leading to prolapse
  • Pelvic muscles are stressed if you are obese or overweight
  • Major pelvic (or areas around it) surgery leads to loss of muscular support
  • Smoking
  • Excessive weight lifting causes weakening of muscles

Symptoms:
Symptoms of uterine prolapse depend on its severity. There are no symptoms or signs if you have mild uterine prolapse. But if you have moderate to severe uterine prolapse, you might experience the following symptoms:

  1. Sensation of pulling or heaviness in the pelvis
  2. Tissue bulges out of your vagina
  3. Urinary problems like urine retention or urine leakage
  4. Bowel movement difficulties
  5. Pain in lower back
  6. Sexual problems such as vaginal tissues feeling loose

Symptoms might feel less distressing during the morning, but they worsen at night. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Things You Should Know Before You Take Up Running

BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist, Hyderabad
Things You Should Know Before You Take Up Running

Running is proven to be one of the most efficient forms of exercise as it has a ton of benefits attached to it. For instance, running helps you in maintaining your body weight by cutting down that unwanted or extra body fat, and helps in keeping you slim and trim. It also aids in improving your metabolism. Regular exercising will keep you energised, and increase your stamina.

Before starting with this physical activity, there are certain things you should know about. These are:

  1. Be patient: Patience is key! Now, we all know that that nothing can change in a day. You won't notice any signs of improvement on the first day. So, the best thing to do is work out every single day with dedication, and you'll notice the results in a month or so.
  2. Be Comfortable: It is very necessary to feel comfortable before you start your exercise. If you are going to run with your high heels or slippers on, it's never going to work out. So, it is very important to dress in your most comfortable attire before you start running.
  3. Eat well: A healthy diet packed with all the essential nutrients is an absolute must if you plan to take up running as a regular exercise. Do not starve yourself at any cost or skip any meal. Running will take up a lot of your energy and a healthy diet is a must if you intend on being fit and strong.
  4. Drink lots of water: It is very essential to drink lots of water and keep yourself hydrated throughout the day. Pro tip: Gulp down some water after your run, as we tend to lose water and minerals from our body in the form of sweat.
  5. Run with music on: Recent studies have proven that running with music on is the better alternative. Music helps us focus more on our goal and also helps us stay calm.
  6. Consistency: You have to be consistent in your workout and only then will you be able to notice a significant change in your health. Running at least once a day is recommended. Some people tend to run twice a day too, but that depends from person to person. Do not burden yourself too much. Running is an exhausting exercise and you should not force your body too much.
  7. Calm your body and mind: Running or jogging in the morning can have a positive impact on you as it reduces stress and keeps you calm and sound throughout the day.

After the pregnancy completion abnormality in the menstrual cycle. It take how much time to be a normal menstrual cycle.
Irregular or no menses are extremely common during first year after childbirth. As long as you r breastfeeding menses will remain irregular but you can not stop feeding because of that. Thats why you should start using contraceptive as you can get pregnant even when you are breastfeeding. Best contraception for you is iucd (cut) or minipill.

It is a temporary tantrum to seek attention of her mother. May be she was attached to only you with little exposure of outside world including a play school where kids as small as 2 get a chance to play with others, use lots of material with space which is not available within our homes. If this is her 1st school, you do not have to yield in. Be firm with her, send her to school minus lecturing her on benefits of education. Kids forget soon and start playing with other kids but become cranky the moment they get to see mother at pick up time. She will make good friends soon. May be teacher is not as good looking as her mother but tell the girl that it is a colorful world with all kinds of people of races and religions. No need to give her lectures as she will feel about her tantrums being successful, because she got your attention. She will not starve because of not eating but school is a must. Make it very clear that come what may, every child in your colony goes to school, why should she not go to a school. Ignore her attention seeking tricks.

It may be due vaginal infection. Keep clean and dry vaginal portion. Change underwear 2-3 times in a day wash that wit hot water. Apply anti fungal cream or gel on vaginal portion.
