Actualyy meri wife ko 3 and half month ka baby hai. hamari saadi december ko hi hui hai or sab family vaale agree nahi hai so. Abortion ho sakata hai.

Hi abortion is legal till 20 weeks (5 months) if there is an indication. However risk to mother is more after 3 months. Chances of complications (like abortion and preterm labour) in subsequent pregnancies. Consider keeping the baby. U can consult me online for further queries.

Suppose boy and girl had a sex using condoms, how can sm1 be so assure that condom was not defected? Is der any way to test the pregnancy in less than a week? What should we do if she will miss her periods? Is abortion legal?

DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology), MBBS
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
After sex you can fill the condom with water and check if there is a defect. You can check a pregnancy only after the missed period. Abortion is legal but there are a few norms and rules which need to be followed.

You should see a Gynaecologist as you will need a few tests done. Also if you are overweight you need to start doing regular exercises and reduce high calorie diet like sugars, chocolates, fizzy drinks.

How to Stop Mild Obsessive Compulsive Behaviour

FIPS, PGDMLS, DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
How to Stop Mild Obsessive Compulsive Behaviour

Obsessive compulsive behaviour is form of anxiety disorder in which unreasonable thoughts and fears, which are obsessions that lead one to do repetitive compulsive behaviour. Root causes of obsessive compulsiveness are complex and often deep seated. The underlying emotional states may include the fear of unknown, not being in control, negative outcomes, failure, rejection, shame, annihilation or embarrassment

You can eliminate mild obsessive compulsion easily, whereas, severe obsessive compulsiveness, require support of medical and mental health professionals.

When you start pondering or obsessing over an activity, you must try to stop the negative pattern, and provide control and security. A good anchor code stops an obsessive thought pattern and provides fact-based security for new action. One can get it under control and recover from it, however at the present, there is no cure. It is a potential that will always be there in the background, even when one's life is no longer affected by it.

The treatment for obsessive compulsive behaviour depends on the how much the condition is affecting the daily life of the person. There are two main treatments, firstly cognitive behavioural therapy, which involves graded exposure and response prevention and the second being medication. The cognitive behaviour therapy emboldens one to face one's fear and let the obsessive thoughts occur without neutralising them with compulsions. In second case, treatment is by medication to control one's symptoms by altering the balance of chemicals in brain.

Obsessive compulsive behaviour that has a relatively minor impact on one's daily life is usually treated with a short course of cognitive behavioural therapy. Cognitive behavioural therapy involves exposure and response prevention that is used to help people with all severities. People with mild to moderate behaviour usually need about 10 hours of therapist treatment, combined with exercises to be done at home between sessions. Those with moderate to severe symptoms may need a more intensive course of therapy that lasts longer than 10 hours.

During the sessions, one works with therapist to break down the problems into their separate parts like physical feelings, thoughts and actions. The therapist encourages you to face your fear and let the obsessive thoughts occur without putting them right. It requires motivation and one should start with situations that cause the least anxiety first. These exposure exercises need to take place many times a day, and need to be done for one to two hours without engaging in compulsions to undo them. People with Obsessive compulsive behaviour find that when they confront their anxiety without carrying the compulsion, the anxiety goes away. Each time, the chances of anxiety reduces and last for a shorter period of time. 

Once you have one exposure task, you can move on to a more difficult task, until you have overcome all of the situations that make you anxious.  It is important to remember it can take several months before a treatment has a noticeable effect. It is extremely vital to remember that no one is perfect, nor can anyone recover perfectly.  Even in well maintained recoveries, people can occasionally mess up and forget what they are supposed to be doing.

Parkinson's Disease - Know Its Causes and Symptoms!

Parkinson's Disease - Know Its Causes and Symptoms!

What causes Parkinson’s disease?

Our brain runs on electricity and chemicals. If there is too much or too little of a particular chemical in your brain, it causes a disease. Parkinson’s disease is caused by the reduction of a chemical called “Dopamine” in our brain.Dopamine is produced in the back of our brain, in a part called the “Mid-Brain”. It is then transported forwards and is widely distributed throughout the entire brain. It fires up the movement centers of our brain, and helps them communicate better with one another.

In Parkinson’s disease, the cells in the midbrain producing Dopamine gradually die. No one quite understands why this happens. The net effect is that the movement centers of the brain don’t communicate well with one another, and this produces the various symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.

What are the symptoms of Parkinson's?

           MOTOR Symptoms

      NON-MOTOR Symptoms
1. Shaking of the hands while resting. Difficulty in thinking
2. Stiff & inflexible muscle DepressionFatigue
3. Bending forward while walking  Pain in one part of the body especially legs or throughout the body
4. Difficulty turning around while walking Ribbling of saliva from the mouth
5. Getting stuck in one position while walking Tingling and restlessness of the legs in the evening or at night
6. In later stages, they can fall frequently. They get slow in doing things Difficulty sleeping at night, Feeling sleepy during the day
7. Expressionless Face Vivid and fearful dreams
  Violent movements of hands and legs while sleeping
  Problems controlling your bladder, having to rush to the bathroom
  Constipation Difficulty in seeing things, especially on waking up

​​​

All patients do not have all of these symptoms. Some patients experience just the shaking of hands; other people experience just the muscle stiffness and so on. Often as people get older, more and more of the dopamine-producing cells are destroyed and patients start developing more symptoms.  But it takes years for this to happen and it may not happen in all people. In some patients, Parkinson's disease remains restricted to just a few symptoms.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

To get pregnant you need to have fallopian tubes patent which is checked by hsg test as you had one miscarriage before. Once the above test is normal, then treatment with clomiphene citrate is started with monitoring of egg. Tests which r done for you are useless and will not benefit u. It looks like probably you have gained weight so you might be suffering from pcod, which again can be diagnosed on sonography.
