Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Spring beds, folding beds or thick matress are harmful use no pillow under the head. Do hot fomantation. Paracetamol 250mg od & sos x 5days. Caldikind plus 1tab od x10. Do neck, back & general exercises. It may have to be further investigated. You will need other supportive medicines also. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. If it does not give relief in 4-5days, contact me again. Do not ignore. It could be beginning of a serious problem.

Hi, repeat the pregnancy test one more time for re-confirming the test. It could be little delayed menses. If you don't want to be pregnant, take homoeopathic medicines - Pulsatilla Q/ 10 drops daily in 1/2 cup of water/ every 2 hrly and Pulsatilla 1M/ one dose daily.

Uterus Removal and Its Effect on Women in Thirties

Uterus Removal and Its Effect on Women in Thirties

The removal of the uterus is known as a hysterectomy. This is a fairly common procedure and may or may not include the removal of the ovaries as well. A hysterectomy may be partial or complete and can be performed abdominally, vaginally or laparoscopically. A partial hysterectomy includes only the removal of the uterus and leaves the cervix in its place. A complete hysterectomy removes both the uterus and the cervix.

There are many reasons for women to undergo a hysterectomy. Treatment of uterine fibroids, endometriosis, uterine prolapsed and cancerous growths are the most common amongst these. There are alternatives to a hysterectomy in most cases and hence, a woman should know all the details about her case before undergoing such a surgery. The only case where hysterectomy is the only solution is in the case of cancerous growths.

The uterus does more than just act as a home for a growing fetus. Hence, the removal of a woman uterus can have a significant effect on her health.

Inability to bear children: For a woman in her thirties, the inability to bear children is the biggest effect of a hysterectomy. Some women may also experience a lowered libido. This is seen mostly in cases where the ovaries are removed along with the uterus. Some women may also face difficulties achieving an orgasm.

Anatomical changes: When the uterus is removed the spine compresses and makes the rib cage move downwards. This makes the hip bones move outwards and widen. As a result the anatomy of a woman changes to give her a wider waist and protruding belly. She may also lose a little height. Vaginal dryness is another physiological change that is triggered by a hysterectomy.

Surgical menopause: If the hysterectomy surgery includes the removal of ovaries, it is followed instantly by menopause. This is regardless of your age. If the ovaries are left intact, there is a risk of menopause occurring within the next five years. Some of the symptoms of menopause are:

  • Hot flushes
  • Depression
  • Insomnia
  • Fatigue
  • Irritability and
  • Vaginal dryness

Depression: Depression is a common side effect of a hysterectomy when it is performed on women in their thirties. The inability to bear children is partly responsible for this. This depression is usually temporary as long as the woman has a good support system in the form of friends and family. In some cases, this depression could also give rise to suicidal feelings. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

Most of the cases pain is due to lack of fitness especially in ladies. Daily household work can cause pain. Combination of physiotherapy and exercise might help.

Am suffering from Lt knee Lock since last 2 months MRI taken on May 12 revealed there is Multiple Ligaments problem of which 2 Partial Tear & 2 sprained (Tear in ACL & LCL) presently wearing Hinges Brace & undergoing physiotherapy but it started paining while walking & lting on bed keeping leg straight. kindly suggest d how it will get unlocked.

Locked knee since 2 month is a serious problem. It's most likely the torn meniscus which has caused the locking. Unfortunately there is no medicines which can heal the torn meniscus. I would strongly recommend that you undergo arthroscopy meniscectomy. I would not be much worried about ligaments at your age, but locked Knee if it remains locked will quickly cause degenerative arthritis in the joint.

I am already 19 years old and my height is still 5 feet only so is there any chance my height can be increased.

Vaidya Visharad
Ayurveda, Narnaul
The banana is increasing height. Being a rich source of minerals like potassium, manganese and calcium and healthy probiotic bacteria, bananas help in boosting height in various ways. The potassium present in bananas protects the bones and teeth from weakening, and it also neutralizes the harmful impact of sodium on bones. It also helps retain the concentration of calcium in bones. Manganese found in bananas improves bone health and metabolism, and the probiotic bacteria absorbs calcium from foods, thereby promoting healthy bones. The calcium in bananas prevents the thinning of bones and helps develop stronger bones.
