There is no need for D&C or even laparoscopy. If after miscarriage u did not get pregnant by one full year, then only u have to take treatment. Maximum u can do HSG to test the tubes, but only after 1 full year. In the first place u did not need any treatment to get pregnant for the first time as u r just 2 years into marriage now. U r definitely getting excessive treatment too soon.

Causes of Soreness in Vulva and Abnormal Discharge in Adolescent Girls

MBBS, MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Noida
Causes of Soreness in Vulva and Abnormal Discharge in Adolescent Girls

Pruritus Vulvae is the most common cause of vulvar soreness and abnormal discharge in adolescent girls. The growing years are a transition phase where most body parts are undergoing changes to reach the adult stage. While some changes would be obvious externally, there are a lot of internal changes, which would not be very apparent. And for growing girls, especially the changes that they see in their private parts are worrisome, sometimes unpleasant and uncomfortable. About 50% of them would not even discuss these with someone to avoid embarrassment.

Some amount of vaginal discharge is normal and contains bacteria, which are essential for a normal genital health. It also provides lubrication and keeps the area clean. However, the amount, color, and type of discharge can vary and is a good indication of any underlying abnormal condition. Most genital tract issues manifest with a change in the vaginal discharge along with irritation or soreness.

In adolescent girls, the most common problem is pruritus vulvae, which is itching of the vulva region. It is a variant of contact dermatitis caused by irritation. In the growing years, the vulva is thin and delicate with a neutral pH. This makes it easily irritable, unlike in mature women, who also have the protection of pubic hair, thick skin, and labial fat pads. This irritation leads to the condition called pruritus vulvae.

Causes of soreness:
These are primarily non-infectious and infectious (genital).

Noninfectious causes:

  1. Poor hygiene leading to irritation, soreness and itching
  2. Contamination with urine or feces
  3. Mechanical irritation from itching, use of toilet paper, ill-fitting undergarments.
  4. Chemical irritation from soaps, detergents, shampoo, chlorinated water, etc.
  5. Foreign body such as toilet paper leading to vaginal discharge can cause vulval irritation
  6. Skin diseases like atopic dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, or psoriasis presents with vulvar symptoms too in the form of soreness and itching

Infectious causes:

  1. Sexually transmitted infections like trichomoniasis, gonorrhea and chlamydia.
  2. Viral infections like genital herpes and genital warts.
  3. Fungal infections such as Candida such as and tinea are rarely the cause of pruritus vulvae in prepubertal females.
  4. Worms like pinworms which move from the anus to the vagina, causing itching
  5. Bacteria like Shigella, Yersinia and E. coli can also lead to non-sexually transmitted infections and subsequent symptoms like soreness and discharge.

Prevention/Management:

  1. Awareness is the first step in prevention. The girl must be educated about the changes her body is going through and the reasons behind it.
  2. Hygiene habits, especially after urination or passing feces, should be enforced.
  3. Avoid undergarments that are tight fitting and can be irritating
  4. Avoid soaps/chemicals when cleaning the genital area
  5. Topical creams (emollients/hydrocortisone) are usually effective
  6. Infections would need a course of antibiotics

When the girl is complaining of soreness and itching, it is best to visit a doctor to get a thorough examination and manage accordingly.

How to Prepare for Labor and Childbirth?

How to Prepare for Labor and Childbirth?

Pain during labor is different for every woman. It ranges widely from woman to woman and even from pregnancy to pregnancy.

It is caused by contractions of the muscles of the uterus and by pressure on the cervix. It's often not the pain of each contraction on its own that women find the hardest, but the fact that the contractions keep coming and that as labor progresses, there is less time between contractions to relax.

To help with pain during labor here are some things you can start doing before or during pregnancy:

  • Educate yourself: Take a birth preparation course class. Ask questions to learn about the different stages of labor so you know what to expect. The better prepared you are the more choices you have during labor.
  • Regular exercise: Learn several effective techniques to manage pain during childbirth such as position changes and different breathing methods. Prenatal yoga helps strengthening the entire body, increases flexibility, gives you stamina and relaxes your mind. Join Lamaze classes being conducted at your hospital to educate yourself about the ways you can decrease your perception of pain during childbirth through relaxation techniques, breathing exercises or massage. Exercise regularly, but do not over do and stress yourself.
  • Find support: Ask your husband to actively participate along with you in the birth preparation classes. Take his support while you exercise. He too would feel involved.
  • Stay well nourished: Pay importance to your diet. Include all the necessary nutrients in your diet and avoid foods which are not recommended during pregnancy. Get in touch with a professional nutritionist to get your ideal diet chart designed.
  • Stay calm and positive: Negative thoughts make labor stressful and intensify the pain. Labor transforms you, but you need to harness your mental strengths and stay composed. People may push all kinds of suggestions on you during labor; listen but don't feel you have to go along with them. Choose what you feel comfortable with and find the best option for yourself.

Remember, your ability to endure the pain of has nothing to do with your worth as a mother. By preparing and educating yourself you can be ready to decide how to manage during labor and childbirth.

Dear lybrate user, fibroadenoma is a benign lump in the breast which is sometimes painful during menstruation. If small and mild pain no need for any active treatment, if it is causing pain some form of hormonal management is done, if it is very big and really tender it is better to get it excised.

Mastrubtion is healthy to health or effective to health pls gv me advantage n disadvantage of it? N how may times in week we can do? Or nt!

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Sexologist, Delhi
Masturbation is ok and enjoyable if you do it in control but if you are addicted to it, consider the situation that as soon as you are alone, you think of masturbating, then thats not a very good sign. Most importantly, you may not be able to take good care of your time and do something constructive if you are always thinking about it. Secondly, there will come a day when you start enjoying masturbation more than actual intercourse which will leave your partner unsatisfied. Also, with lots of masturbation, your brain will adjust itself to ejaculating quickly because you are not enjoying a partner and just want to reach the climax (ejaculation) quickly, so this will lead to problem of premature ejaculation or erectile dysfunction in long run.

Hi, Get a pregnancy test done after a week of missed menstrual date to rule out pregnancy as there is release of a hormone called - Human Chorionic Gonadatropin once female gets pregnant. (The test is done with early morning's first urine’ mid-stream). The best way to prevent results from misleading is to follow the instructions included in the package. Of course, you should mind its expiration date. You know the kit will not function properly after that day. Rest assured that you follow the instructions below carefully with no skipping. -Urinate (a few drops suffice) into the circular area of the device. -ŸHang in there for a few minutes and results will only take a short while. The result is positive if two pink lines appear on the device. The result is negative if only one pink line appears on the device. ŸIt might be the case that you will see two lines appear with different colors, possibly one dark pink and one light pink. This generally means the test needs to be retaken. Make sure you wait 2 or 3 days before taking it again, preferably right after you wake up. Bear in mind, however, that negative results are not that reliable. If you feel nausea or still have symptoms of pregnancy, you might want to indulge in a more thorough check-up. We would also like to warn you of a list of medications that can affect test results, such as promethazine, sleeping tablets, tranquillizers, diuretics and medicine used to treat epilepsy and/or Parkinson’s, etc. You can also check the information leaflet coming with the Pregnancy kit, as it will inform you about whether some medications will alter the results of the test.

No need to worry it is fine, as small amount of semen contains millions of sperm in it, so even if most of it drains out of vagina it is fine. Secondly as advised by doctor start doing regular exercise for weight loss and take dietary measures as well.

My wife is not having sexual feelings at all. She is a 35 years old with one child.

My wife is not having sexual feelings at all. She is a 35 years old with one child.
Still, talking about sex and working on your sexual relationship can be difficult, even when you've enjoyed great intimacy. These ideas can help. ? Pick neutral territory for a conversation. To help make it easier for your partner to open up, don't approach the topic in bed. Paget advised keeping the conversation simple -- ask just a few questions so your partner doesn?t feel overwhelmed or attacked. Start by telling your partner you enjoy having sex with her and ask what you can do to help her enjoy it more. ? Ask about any stress or other concerns that might be keeping her from feeling pleasure. As experts at Harvard Medical School point out, physical desire can be enough to lead to arousal, sex, and orgasm in men, but the sexual response for women is often more complex. Her motivation for sex may be to feel close to you. If an emotional connection is lacking because of relationship concerns, mental health problems, stress, or some other reason, her desire for sex may lessen. ? Be an unselfish lover. Are you having sex in ways she wants or that keep her interested, asked Paget? Don?t focus solely on your own needs. Encourage her to tell you what feels good to her. Maybe there's something about your sex life that makes her uncomfortable or there's something she wants to try but is embarrassed to mention. Be open to what she has to say. ? Help her relax. If your partner says sex is painful, discuss ways you can help her relax before sex. Perhaps draw a warm bath for her before meeting in the bedroom. Using lubricants and trying different positions may also help. ? Let her know you find her attractive. Show her that she's desirable. Make it a point to compliment her more often -- not just during foreplay, but also at random times when you aren't trying to initiate sex. ? Find other ways to show support. If you know that she's under a great deal of stress at work, take on some of her household responsibilities so that you can enjoy more time just being together.
