I am irregular periods from some months. I have very less flow. In first n third day there are some drops of blood on my sanitary napkin. What can b the problem? Average period days is 4.

Sexologist, Panchkula
Reasons for your irregular periods could be stress, faulty dietary habits or hormonal changes. I advise you to take proper balanced vegetarian diet. Take fruits and vegetables in daily diet. Take 8 to 10 glasses of water daily. Avoid non veg and eggs. Do meditation for mental strength. Keep your weight normal as compared to your height.

My son who is 3 months old has a reflux immediately after a feed every time. Is this a matter of concern?

Pediatrician, Bangalore
Burp the child 2-3 times after every feed and keep the child little longer time erect on yr shoulder, this may help. Few children spit or vomit after liquid feeds this will stop when you will start semi solid supplement after few months. Till that take care of aspiration in wind pipe.

Hello , make sure you take good food with more nutrition values. I know now a days its not possible to get good nutrition from food in our busy life. You can go with food supplements, like iron, calcium which helps you to maintain good metabolism. While you are working 1glass water for every 1hrs. Which keeps you active. Don't sit for long hours. Some calories has to be burnt. So, take some 15 mins time to do a regular walk. Physical activity is must. Keep some dry fruits like badam, kaju. Etc. Let me help you with more info required. Have a nice day.

A huge haul of Hans and Pan Parag was seized from godowns in Kokkalai. This is a commendable jod done by our police.These substances are sold to small children at school gate by unscrupulous traders who have petty inhuman gain only in their mind. It is very risky as the children will grow up as hard drug addicts and criminals, and antisocials.
I have written so many letters to police authorities years back regarding the dangers of Pan Masala. Feels very happy now, as they have started acting positively about this grave social public health problem.

How to use condoms Male condom Female condom

How to use condoms  Male condom  Female condom
Male and female condoms can be used to protect you from HIV. But don't use them both at the same time! If used together, they won't stay in place, and they can tear or become damaged. Read the instructions and practice a few times before using condoms for the first time. Also, follow these guidelines:

Male condom

Use male condoms made of latex, or polyurethane if you or your partner is allergic to latex. Use male condoms for vaginal, anal, or oral sex.

Keep male condoms in a cool, dry place. Don't keep them in your wallet or in your car! This can cause them to break or tear.

Check the wrapper for tears and for the expiration date, to make sure the condom is not too old to use. Carefully open the wrapper. Don't use your teeth or fingernails. Make sure the condom looks okay to use. Don't use a condom that's gummy, brittle, discolored, or has even a tiny hole.
Put on the condom as soon as the penis is erect, but before it touches the vagina, mouth, or anus.

Use lubricants only made with water, such as K-Y jelly. Oil-based lubricants, such as Vaseline, can weaken the condom. The lubricant is put on the outside of the condom. It helps to keep the condom from tearing. Don't use lubricants with the spermicide N-9, which might make it easier for HIV to get into your body.

After sex, pull out the penis while it is still erect, holding the condom firmly at the base of the penis so it does not slip off.
Use a new condom if you want to have sex again or in a different way. Do not wash and re-use condoms — they are for one-time use!

female condom

The female condom, known as the FC2, is made of a rubber-like substance that is not latex. This condom is made for vaginal sex only. FC2 has a ring on each end. The inside ring holds the condom in place inside the vagina. The outer ring stays outside the vagina so it covers the labia. Some research suggests that the female condom is effective at preventing HIV. It is not yet known whether it is as effective as the male condom. The male condom is still considered best for preventing HIV. Use female condoms for vaginal sex if your partner won't use a male condom. Remember: Don't use a male condom and a female condom at the same time. They could break.

Check the wrapper for tears and to make sure the condom is not too old to use. Open the wrapper carefully. Don't use your teeth or fingernails. Make sure the condom looks OK to use. The condom will be moist and may be slippery.

Put the condom into the vagina up to eight hours before having sex, but before the penis touches the vagina. The condom cannot disappear inside your body.

To insert the FC2, squeeze the inner ring with the thumb and middle finger and insert it into the vagina like a tampon. Then, use the index finger to push the inner ring as far up as it will go, without twisting the condom. There should be about an inch of condom outside your vagina to allow for the condom to expand during sex.

FC2 comes pre-lubricated. But it is okay to use water or oil-based lubricants too. The lubricant is put on the inside and outside of the condom.

During sex, make sure the outer ring of the FC2 isn't pushed into the vagina.

After sex, hold the condom in place while your partner withdraws his penis. Remove the condom before standing up. Grasp the outside ring and twist the condom to trap in fluid and gently remove. Or, you can hold the condom tight around your partner's penis and he can pull out his penis and the condom at the same time, being careful not to spill any fluid out of the condom.
Use a new condom if you want to have sex again.

Infertility: Causes And Symptoms!

MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology, MBBS
IVF Specialist, Dibrugarh
Infertility: Causes And Symptoms!

Infertility is a condition where a couple, trying to conceive in a natural way is not able to do so even after one year of trying. It is also a matter of worry for patients who are over the age of 35 years and those who are not able to conceive naturally even after 12 months of trying constantly.

Causes: There are many causes of infertility. It may be down to a condition present in one or both partners. Ovulation and fertilisation are the main elements of the conception process and any condition in the female or male can upset either function, which can make it difficult to conceive.

While abnormal sperm production and transport may be a common condition that leads to infertility in males, other factors like side effects of cancer treatments and too much exposure to toxins and chemicals can also play an important role in this regard. For females, the causes of infertility may range from ovulation disorders, uterine and fibroid tumours, uterine and cervical anomalies, damage to or blockage of the fallopian tubes, endometriosis, primary ovarian insufficiency and pelvic adhesions.

Infertility Symptoms in Women

In women, changes in the menstrual cycle and ovulation may be a symptom of a disease related to infertility. Symptoms include:

  • Abnormal periods. Bleeding is heavier or lighter than usual.
  • Irregular periods. The number of days in between each period varies each month.
  • No periods. You have never had a period, or periods suddenly stop.
  • Painful periods. Back pain, pelvic pain, and cramping may happen.

Treatment: Female patients can turn to medication that will stimulate ovulation, intrauterine insemination, and surgical processes to correct a uterine septum and remove endometrial polyps, or even a hysteroscopy surgery. Male patients can go through a treatment for any existing infections, hormonal injections and medication, surgical options like vasectomy reversal and art or assistive reproductive technology.

If these methods fail, the patient or the couple can always turn to methods like in vitro fertilisation. For other mild reasons, lifestyle changes along with a stress free environment can help in increasing the chances of conception. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

Secondary Infertility - How To Overcome It

MBBS, DGO, MD, Fellowship in Gynae Oncology
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Secondary Infertility - How To Overcome It

Secondary infertility is a condition characterized by the inability to get pregnant, in spite of a successful pregnancy in the past. Usually, after a conception, a woman feels confident about her second conception as well. However, this might not always be the case. This condition can be very frustrating for couples, and can be traumatic for some.

Mental issues such as anxiety, shame, depression and guilt can affect both the partners for being unable to conceive the second time.


The causes of secondary infertility are:

  1. Certain complications resulting from previous pregnancies.

  2. Problems in production of sperm in men or impaired delivery of the sperm.

  3. Damage to the fallopian tubes or other ovulation disorders in women.

  4. Physical changes in the body owing to age, weight and usage of certain medications.

Procedures to Overcome Secondary Infertility:

In order to overcome secondary infertility, these tips can come in handy:

  1. Consult a fertility specialist: If you have been facing this problem for a while now, consult a reputed fertility specialist. The doctor will be able to guide you through the steps you must take and also diagnose any underlying condition. Once the condition is diagnosed, if any, then he can zero in on a treatment course.

  2. Change your diet: If you have been following a diet that misses out on some important nutrients and vitamins, especially Vitamin D that is so crucial for easing the process of conception and reproduction, sit up and rectify it. Eat well balanced meals with a healthy mix of nutrients, so that the body is well nourished and the reproductive system functions optimally.

  3. Exercise regularly: With age, physical activity tends to go on a downward spiral, making you prone to weight gain. Obesity can hamper one’s plans of conception; so if the weighing scale is on the heavier side, then take immediate steps to correct it. Simple exercises such as walking or jogging, done regularly, can help keep weight within optimal levels. It will also help reduce stress levels that will ultimately boost the health of hormones related to reproduction.
