Tharani depends whether you are having your periods still. If you have got menopause then let the fibroid be. If you are still having periods and they are heavy and uncomfortable then go for surgery. Also if fibroid is small, you can let it be.

Doing sex daily or not is couple's choice has no special effect on health. Increase in size of breasts difficult but whatever possible by excercises and high protein. Of course last option is of plastic surgery.

How to wash your hands correctly

Good hand washing is the key to preventing the spreading of common infections.

Generally, as a child, we hear from our parents repeatedly saying that ,'WASH YOUR HANDS PROPERLY'.

We might think that they are nagging , but it is very important to keep germs away.

So, Follow these simple steps to keep your hand clean:

1. Use warm water ( avoid cold or hot water).

2. It's not imperative to use antibacterial soap every time , ever regular soap insufficient.

3. Rub your hands together well and scrub all surfaces of hand . Lather up on both sides of hand , wrist , between your fingers, around your nails. The ideal time you should spend washing is 20 seconds.
4. Rinse well under warm running water and pat dry with clean towel.

Sometimes, excessive hand washing can cause dryness, so use mild soaps for washing , pat rather than rubbing with a towel for drying your hands and apply moisturising lotion afterwards.

Take care of above points, next time you wash your hands.

I am 23 years old girl. I have pcod. So my doc prescribed me mormoz. So wat s the the use of it?
Is it normoz? if it is, it is only a multivitamin and minerals for women. For pcod as such, depending on your symptoms you will require medication. Otherwise diet and weight reduction is the only way to control it. It is very common nowadays.

I had sex with 2 girl without protection yesterday I had sex with my wife i am very scared can I diagnose with hiv or hiv western bolt what is that western bolt? How hiv occur how its effect on body? Shall I now sex with my wife in future?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist,
If the two girls are commercial sex workers, then you must be on guard. Unprotected sex with any unknown partner can be a high risk activity and may result in transmission of hiv infection. As per your saying, you had unprotected sex with 2 girls and also had sex with your wife, this act of yours is very irresponsible one. When a person comes in sexual contact with a hiv infected person, the hiv virus can enter the body. Hiv virus is intracellular virus, it needs a cell to multiply body immunity helps in fighting the hiv virus and can keep the virus destroyed, unless the virus has multiplied in vast quantities and has damaged the" protective" white blood cells. This takes time. If the infection is well controlled then the elisa will be negative. That a person is free from hiv, can be said with confidence only after 2 elisa tests 6 months apart, and both being negative. The earliest marker is hiv viral load. This is in the first weeks after infection (usually from 1 to 6 weeks after exposure). A high viral load is related to seroconversion symptoms. The first hiv protein (antigen) that can be measured is p24 (from 2 to 8 weeks after exposure). Viral load and p24 tests are not accurate for diagnosing early hiv if the results are negative. An hiv antibody response can be detected as early as two weeks in a few people and in more than 99.9% of people by 12 weeks. An antibody test at 4 weeks will detect 95% of infections. Antibody testing at 4 weeks can give you a good indication of your hiv status, but you need a test at 12-24 weeks after the exposure to be considered hiv negative. All this will matter if those 2 girls were hiv positive! if they are negative, there will not be any chances of you or your wife getting hiv also, it would be better to abstain from sex with your wife or anybody for the next 6 months or if that is not possible, then a condom with a spermicidal coating is the best option.

Dear lybrate-user this medication is a steroid. And these steroids will have their detrimental side effects. If you take it too often. It may effect future pregnancy. There are other methods of contraception you can follow. Ambitions should not harm your health. Take care.

While taking duphaston, menses can come scany. As she bled for 2 days it looks like menses only but still possibility of pregnancy can not be ruled out, it can be implantation bleeding also. So after 7 days if her proper menses do not start, then you should get urine pregnancy test done.

Birth Control Pills - 10 Common Side Effects of Them!

Birth Control Pills - 10 Common Side Effects of Them!

A birth control pill is commonly referred to as an oral contraceptive pill. A form of hormonal contraception and is a highly effective method of birth control. Only 1% of women experience unintended pregnancy when on the pill.

Birth control pills are of two types i.e combination pills and mini pills. Combination pills contain synthetic forms of the two hormones called oestrogen and progesterone. The mini pill only contains the hormone progesterone and is called progestin.

However, the pill does have some side effects to it. These include the following:

  1. Intermenstrual spotting: Within the first three months of starting the pill, women experience vaginal bleeding between the two period cycles.
  2. NauseaAlthough the symptoms subside after some time, some women till experience nausea for a while after taking the pill. If one consumes the pill with food or before going to bed, this can help lower the likelihood of feeling nauseous.
  3. Breast tenderness: The breasts might feel tender and enlarged after taking the pill. However, anyone who finds a lump in the breast or feels continuous pain needs to seek medical help.
  4. Headaches: Migraines and headaches are a very common phenomenon of the birth control pill. Different types and doses of these pills may result in different headache symptoms.
  5. Gaining weight: Experiencing certain fluid retention in the hip or breast area is very common. It also affects the fat cells of the body because of the oestrogen present in the pills.
  6. Mood swings: Those with a history of stress or depression might start to feel the same again. If one has that kind of a history and starts to feel emotional changes, she should consult a doctor immediately.
  7. Missing periods: It is a common side effect that after using the pill, one's period might get skipped. This is influenced by several factors including stress, depression or thyroid dysfunctions.
  8. Decreased libido: The sex drive can be widely affected by the birth control pill. Although many other factors could result in a decreased libido, but if it remains after having the pill and is persistent, one should seek medical help or consult a specialist.
  9. Vaginal discharge: There could be an increase or a decrease in the vaginal lubrication. Some people might experience vaginal discharge since it is very common. Changes in vaginal discharge never turn out to be harmful.
  10. Changes in the vision: Fluid retention due to the birth control pill can result in the swelling of corneas. Because of this, even contact lenses do not fit comfortably. Contact lens wearers should consult an ophthalmologist if their vision or lens tolerance is disturbed.


Although there are certain side effects to taking birth control pills; however, one should not abstain from taking them in the fear that they might cause certain side effects. These pills are a precautionary measure along with other protection methods and should be taken in case someone wants to avoid pregnancy at the time being.

When to See a Fertility Specialist?

MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecolog, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Hyderabad
When to See a Fertility Specialist?

If you’ve been facing problems in conceiving, it may be time to get yourself checked as it’s possible that you may be suffering from certain fertility issues or need professional guidance. A series of tests usually determine the root cause of the problem. These tests can include a physical examination, analysis of semen and blood tests, amongst others. There are certain factors that you and your partner must keep in mind when deciding upon the best time to opt for these tests and get started on an infertility treatment programme.

If you’re a female, it’s time to get yourself examined when:
1. You haven’t been able to conceive for over a year despite trying (when you are under 35)
2. You haven’t been able to conceive after trying for 6 months (above the age of 35)
3. You’ve had 1 or more miscarriages
4. You’ve been ovulating irregularly and your previous drug treatment has failed to correct the problem
5. You suffer from damaged or blocked fallopian tubes and endometriosis (a condition where tissues that cover your uterus also develop outside of the womb, causing pain and bleeding)
6. You have a history of genital infections

If you’re a male, you should consider an infertility treatment if you experience the following:
1. Facing difficulty in sperm ejaculation
2. Suffering from a low sperm count including poor sperm movement or structure (sperm’s shape and size)
3. Having an undescended testicle (a genital abnormality that occurs when the testicle fails to move into its normal position in the scrotum during the first 3 months of your life)

Apart from the above mentioned points, another important factor that you and your partner must decide upon is whether or not you intend to use assisted reproductive procedures, such as ICSI (IntraCytoplasmic Semen Insertion) or in vitro fertilization (IVF) to help in conceiving. While the former sees fertilisation occurring naturally after the eggs and sperm get placed inside one of the two fallopian tubes, the latter deals with the transference of the embryo created in the laboratory into the uterus.

Even though the thought of infertility can be disappointing for you and your partner, early and timely intervention can help in easing up the process of conception and remove obstacles that might hinder your chances of having a baby. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.
