Hi lybrate-user. Not every unprotected sex leads to a pregnancy. Pregnancy depends on factors such as ovulation. There are medicines to help with abortion but I would not suggest you just take them casually as incorrect dosage and technique leads to severe problems, sometimes requiring hospitalisation and surgery as well. So I would advise you do a pregnancy test and check if you are actually pregnant or not. Do the test with an early morning sample of urine after a week of delayed period to confirm.

Hello, it is often natural to experience darkness in the vaginal area due to friction in most women. Keep the area dry and allow sun light exposure.

How to Treat Mosquito Bites in Monsoon

MD, MBBS

How to Treat Mosquito Bites in Monsoon

Monsoon is happily welcomed by one and all after a hot summer. But the immunity of the body is reduced in this season as it makes our body defenseless to a lot of diseases that are generally associated with the monsoon season. The temperature at a place goes down when it rains, but it brings along uninvited mosquitoes. Hence, our body immunity must be boosted so that it becomes resistant to any disease. The most prevalent diseases that occur due to a mosquito bite are dengue, malaria, brain fever and filaria.

Methods to treat mosquito bites in monsoon: Water stagnation is caused due to rain and the stagnated water acts as an excellent breeding ground for mosquitoes. Even any pond with still water can produce mosquitoes easily in just 4 days. Mosquito coils and repellents are not that very effective, and they cannot captivate these invaders totally. It is best to make use of home remedies that are helpful as well as harmless than using mosquito repellants that contain chemicals in them.

Effective and simple remedies to treat mosquito bites: 

The after effects of a mosquito bites are not only annoying, but also very harmful and it is better that mosquito bites are treated by use of home remedies:

  1. The most effective anti-itch remedy that can be used to treat a mosquito bite is the use of Ammonia. The acidity or the pH of the skin is changed and ammonia is known to oppose chemical reactions that cause the itching. Dry cotton can be moistened by use of Ammonia and applied to the affected area.
  2. The other effective method that can be used to treat a mosquito bite is rubbing alcohol on the affected area. Alcohol cures the itch and is even known to minimize the swelling. Alcohol can be poured directly on the affected area or can be applied with cotton.
  3. Hydrogen Peroxide is an excellent antiseptic that is used to prevent any infection caused due to mosquito bites. It is very important that Hydrogen Peroxide is applied in the right way to reduce the swelling and redness. It is an effective remedy that can be used for kids as well.
  4. Soap can also be applied on the affected area to provide relief and in case of any irritation, it is better to wash off the area with water immediately.
  5. To minimize the discomfort caused due to a mosquito bite, toothpaste can be applied to that area. Toothpaste that contains menthol, peppermint as well as baking soda is good for treating a mosquito bite.

There are many other such products that are readily available at home and that can be used to treat mosquito bites like garlic, table salt, ketchup, garlic and cocktail sauce.

I had simple left ovarian cyst which was about 11cm. I have undergone a minor lap instead of lyproscopy. Now 5 months have been completed of my operation. Accordings to my doctor, I dont have proper right ovary. There is only a part of it. So now I have left ovary. So please advice: 1. What are my conceiving chances? wil it take long time 2. Do cyst will occur again? 3. What should the size of the left ovary and follicle tube for conceiving. According to my doctor my left ovary is now normal in size and follicle tube too. Thank you:)

1. Chance of conception is not affected by single ovary- so far as no other problem in you or in your partner. 2. Yes, unfortunately some cysts can recur again but most of the time, they do not need operation. 3. You will be astonished to know that, if we keep only 1/10 of an ovary and remove 9/10 of an ovary, the remaining 1/10 is sufficient to carry out its function. So, size does not matter. Again, there is no hard and fast rule of size of tube for conception. What is important for tube, is it's function, not the size. And for follicles, the normal follicles grow in each cycle and reach certain size and then rupture to release the egg. So, if it is rupturing at normal time, there should not be any problem in conception.

How Respiratory Complaints Related to Skin?

How Respiratory Complaints Related to Skin?

Do you know that there are certain substances, which may cause respiratory and skin problems? Substances while at work may lead to the development of allergies when breathed in. Allergies may also occur when the substances are exposed to the skin directly. These substances are known as skin and respiratory sensitizers and are capable of causing damage to the nose, skin, throat and lungs. If you are affected in any way, further exposure to sensitizers may lead to allergic symptoms.

Effects of skin and respiratory sensitizers
The effects on the respiratory system may be experienced in the form of symptoms, such as runny or itchy eyes and nose, which is typical of hay fever. More symptoms may follow which include wheezing, breathlessness, coughing and chest tightness. The symptoms in case of skin include itchy, red, dry and cracked skin with irritation. Severe symptoms like bleeding might follow and the symptoms may spread to the different parts of the body.

When do the symptoms occur?
The symptoms show up on being exposed to the substance. In most cases, sensitization occurs within a few months. The symptoms may be experienced even twelve years after the exposure. The symptoms are more severe during evening and night. There are chances of the symptoms improving during weekends and holidays. Once established, respiratory attacks may occur, triggered by exposure to tobacco smoke, cold water and exercise. Attack on skin commonly occur when exposed to chemicals present in the cleaning products.

Substances causing sensitization
The substances, which cause skin sensitization include isocyanates, wood dust, flour and grain dust, solder flux, glues and resins, laboratory animals glutaraldehyde and chemicals used in hairdressing.

Legal obligations associated with skin and respiratory sensitisers
There are certain legal duties, which an employer should undertake for protecting employees. These include protecting workers and public from risks which are associated with skin and respiratory sensitizers. The Control of Substances Hazardous to Heath Regulations lay out the legal requirements in order to protect workers. In order to comply with it, an employer has to assess the risk of health which may arise from activities at work. The employer also needs to decide the precautions which should be taken to prevent or control any risk. It is also to be ensured that control measures are utilised and maintained well. The workers’ exposure to harmful fumes and substances should be monitored constantly. The workers should also be informed, instructed and trained about the risks associated with their work.

According to homeopathy, when a patient suffers from cold, his body will develop skin complaints at times. It’s a way to get rid of internal affection in respiratory system. People usually misunderstand such cold, as another skin disease. However, neither the cold nor the skin complaint will get cured. The patient will be declining day by day. Similarly, if there are skin diseases, when suppressed, affect internal organs. Skin disease is not a health hazard unless it becomes septic. If you experience any symptoms associated with skin and respiratory sensitizers, it is important for you to visit a homeopath. This would enable timely diagnosis and treatment. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

To get pregnant you need to have fallopian tubes patent which is checked by hsg test and semen should be adequate quality which is checked by semen analysis. These both tests are done before the treatment of any infertile couple. Once the above tests are normal, then treatment with clomiphene citrate is started with monitoring of egg.

Pregnancy is possible only on one day of cycle i. E. On ovulation day. When you say 1 year means 12 trials that too if all were unprotected sexual intercourse in midcycle. That is why normally it is worth waiting for 12 to 24 months before you start investigations and treatment which needs more time so patience and meeting gynecologist repeatedly in whom you have trust.

Please seek help from a psychologist. You definitely need help through this phase of life. You need to make a new beginning and getting out of past would be extremely difficult and may leave lifelong scars. So, if you can afford, start seeing a psychologist immediately.

May be you never discussed with your husband about fear of having kids, being too absorbed in job or listening to sob sob stories from other working mothers about creche/ ayaah problems which are faced by every working woman with young kids in entire universe. It may not affect your health but it will lead to marital discard for sure as you have no respect for feelings of your husband. He loves kids and you 2 can adjust timetables of your respective jobs, having own kids instills feelings of nurture through own maternal instincts which you have not felt yet - how can you say that you hate kids? a senior being ditched by own kids after giving them all they had, has a reason to feel bitter but youth should be full of enthusiasm for a positive change and to believe in harsh reality that parenting is a one way process.

Which fruit or fruit juice is more help full for 6 month pregnancy?
And what time she take this?
Hello, A pregnant woman should take utmost caution of what she eats. A nutritious diet rich in proteins, iron, calcium and omega 3 fatty acids is recommended. Overall besides normal food make sure she takes a big glass of milk daily, 2-3 eggs in a week, chicken/ fish twice a week, take 2 helping of fruits and salads daily. Taking 5-6 almonds alone a piece or two of walnuts daily should overall take care of your nutritional requirements. Hope this helps you.
