Nabothian cysts usually do not cause problems in conceiving. Usually they disappear on their own. They can be opened and drained if they are large and causing distortion of cervical canal. Otherwise it is not a problem for IVF.

Addicted to Sweet Stuffs on this Diwali? Here's how to break the cycle.

Addicted to Sweet Stuffs on this Diwali? Here's how to break the cycle.

Diwali has just gone by and there are festivities in the air. Lots of people have gotten into the habit of having sweet tit bits at odd times and then blaming it on their sweet tooth. Is there something called as sugar addiction or is it plain bad habits? experts advise that it is probably both and one needs to just stop the intake of extra table sugar in any form.

A three week sugar free diet is said to cure the body of the sugar cravings and detox the body from sugar. But the fact is a small period of absence and then binging may create an addict-like effect. The reason is high blood sugar causes the secretion of feel-good hormones from the brain. These hormones are the same as those released by the brain after consuming street drugs like cocaine. Thus sugar can mess up the body and brain much like a very small dose of heroin.

People who are habituated to sugar either because of addiction or plain bad eating habits may get into a rhythm when they started feeling shaky, low and nervous when they miss their daily sugar fix. These symptoms occur because of low blood sugar and become more prominent as the metabolism tilts towards diabetes.

Medical research has found that people who find themselves hooked on sugar, trigger a brain reaction similar to those produced by drug addicts. The sugar gets quickly broken into glucose which is the food for the brain and triggers these reactions.

Though even vegetables, dairy and fruits also have these sugars but because of high amount of fibre in these foods, the release of glucose in the body is slow and constant whereas the glucose released by artificial stuff like candy etc is sudden and sharp. This sharp peak creates a sugar- high and seems to be the cause of trouble for our brain. Once the sugar levels drop we start craving for a sugar high again.

The high followed by a low sugar cycle needs to be broken to have a sustained energy level and it is important to avoid foods which can push us into this trap. Foods like fruits, vegetables, yogurt, corn etc should be consumed more and quick sugar foods like pastries, cakes, table sugar, jellies, donuts etc need to be consumed less in order to avoid sugar addiction.

You should give rest to your uterus for at least 3mnths after d & c and also to avoid pregnancy damage. You can try again after 3 mnths.

Smoking mothers do affect the health of growing babies in their wombs, so does environmental pollution and low levels of oxygen in the blood. Regarding augmentation surgery, since implants are kept on the chest muscles, not on the glands, theoretically it does not affect lactation, but there is no research or date available about lactation after breast enlargement surgeries. Ask her to give up smoking, it is a small sacrifice made by a mother to be for the sake of baby.

She is suffering from dysmenorrhoea which is very common. It should be treated initially with meftal spas (pain killer) tablets. There is no other option than taking these tablets. No exercises or diet or food will relieve her from pain except meftal spas or equivalent. If the pain is too severe it should be further investigated with ultrasound, to find out the exact cause. She could be suffering from endometriosis or ovarian cyst or fibroid.

Hi Sajida. Good to know you are a doc too. Its common to have stress and anxiety in your case as its possible that these symptoms are a manifestation of the same. However if you doubt a pregnancy, I suggest you repeat the test tomorrow with an early morning sample of urine. Actually the upto comes positive only around 5 weeks, before that it may not detect a pregnancy. Hopefully this helps you out.

Hello, I have looked at the query and understand your concern. If gall stones are there during pregnancy, then it is necessary to take extra care, particularly if stasis and jaundice develops. It is better to get a regular follow up done to see if there is any need for any intervention. So please keep consulting her gynecologist and a surgeon about the treatment that may be needed. Thanks.
