Hello Doctor. I am 24 year old, when am sex with my boyfriend then I have in situation very painful feelings I got in every sex time then whats problem and solution.

Madam, this is happening because of stiffness of vagina. The good news is that this condition is easily treatable with ayurvedic tablets that can be taken orally. These tablets nourish walls of vagina and increase their elasticity so that there is no pain and intercourse is more enjoyable. Moreover, these tablets don't have any side effects. Just let me know your height and weight so as to arrive at perfect prescription. Regards Dr. Omkar shahapurkar

How the problem of uterus fibroid resolved naturally or by medication? Please help.

Gynaecologist, Kolkata
Asymptomatic small fibroids are very common and do need need any treatment. If there are problems with bleeding or pain or pressure symptoms because of large size of the tumour then treatment is needed. Surgery or medicine depends on the age, size and site. Larger tumors causing symptoms need surgery

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry

Loss of interest, decreased concentration and attention, feeling low and disturbed sleep or appetite are some of the signs of depression. Consult a psychiatrist who will assess you in detail. If you are feeling suicidal or hopeless, seek professional help immediately. Try some relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation and deep breathing. Indulge in hobbies. Spend time with people close to you.

Ayurvedic Remedies for Acidity

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), Diploma in Piles Treatment , MD - Ayurveda

Ayurvedic Remedies for Acidity

The acids help the body dissolve the food particles and also break it down to more basic elements. However, when the body produces too much acid, it causes acid reflux which can cause discomfort. Too much acid within the body, which is also known as hyperacidity, can be caused by a multitude of factors.

Known and effective Ayurvedic cures: Ayurveda considers acidity to be a 'Pitta' problem and it can be corrected by following certain simple steps. There are other food ingredients which are also used as remedial tools. Let's have a look at some of the dos and don'ts of Ayurvedic remedies for acidity.

Don'ts for acidity according to Ayurveda:

1. Limit junk food and other foods, which are very heavy in fats and processed items: Most processed foods and junk food usually made in stores contain unhealthy fats. The stomach needs to produce more acid in order to digest them and thus may end up causing acidity.

2. Stop excessive consumption of tea, coffee: Stop consumption of caffeinated beverages such as tea, coffee and other caffeine injected drinks which may encourage the production of more stomach acids.

3. Stop the consumption of alcohol and cooperates: Apart from being generally bad for health as both of these are known contributors of cancers, they can even affect smaller day to day functions and can lead to acidity.

4. Don't consume foods which are high in acidic content: If you tend to like food which is very high in acidic content, it is advisable to limit its consumption. Some examples of this are:

  1. Vinegar
  2. Curds
  3. Pickles
  4. Tamarinds
  5. Sour citrus fruits
  6. Salty fried foods

Dos for acidity according to Ayurveda:
There are multiple solutions for acidity in Ayurveda which have been known cures for generations. Let's take a look at some of these.

  1. Do have meals on time: It is best to not skip meals as this can cause the acidity levels within the stomach to rise if it doesn't have any food to digest. It is especially harmful to skip breakfast and then have a heavy lunch to compensate.
  2. Do have amla or Indian gooseberry: This is a very effective weapon against acidity and chewing a few morsels will easily cure the problems in your stomach.
  3. Pomegranate Juice: Very small quantities of Pomegranate juice on a daily basis will be very beneficial for a bad case of acid reflux.
  4. Coconut water: Drink coconut water as it is known to have properties to neutralize the stomach acids.
  5. Aniseed: Also known as saunf, you can chew them raw and slowly swallow with water for quick relief from acidity.
  6. Jeera: Jeera consumed with warm ghee and then mixed with rice tends to be very good for acidity as well. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a ayurveda and ask a free question.

Hello When was your last period. A very faint second line may mean a very early pregnancy or a non viable pregnancy. You can confirm with two b hcg blood test 48 hours apart. If you are having cramps with brownish bleeding then maybe its not a good pregnancy. Go to a doctor and get evaluated.

HI sanjeev. Both tubes blocked could be a problem. However it is tratable. There are 2 ways of treating it. Either you can try to inject medicines from the vagina towards the tubes. Other is by laproscopy. Usually the second one is tried after the 1st one fails. The chances of success however depend where exactly are the tubes blocked. I hope you get well soon . All the best.

My sister is pregnant 6 weeks now using ivf. Doctors doubt if child brain is undeveloped. Leading to forced abortion. Please tell me which doctor to consult. My sister lives in delhi.

My sister is pregnant 6 weeks now using ivf.
Doctors doubt if child brain is undeveloped. Leading to forced abortion....
No doctor would suggest an abortion if the baby is healthy. So please do not get tense about it as the treating Dr. must have had all the investigation done to confirm about baby's status and then would have advised abortion. If still in doubt ,she can always tell her Dr. that she wants to go in for second opinion before going in for abortion.

Hello, if you are a known case of cod and desire a child then you should opt for ovulation induction and intrauterine insemination. This shall give you positive results. You need to meet an infertility specialist of your gynecologist for the same. Further discussion and details can be furnished on direct questioning. Regards.

I have problem of white vaginal discharge.

CCST, Accredation in Colposcopy, MRCOG, MD, DGO
Gynaecologist,
Ensure you keep the area clean. Do not use soap or dettol locally. Drink 2.5 litres of water daily. Eat a well balanced diet. Avoid fried and junk foods. Use multivitamin supplements. You can use a local wash like intiwash and see if it helps. If nothing works you will need a course of antibiotics.

I have pcos problem. Does it cure by taking pills for an year? or else can I go for homeopathic medicine for permanent solution.

BHMS
Homeopath, Hyderabad
Pcod nowadays is common problem. Taking pills is not permanent solution. As soon as you stop again it will start. You need to treat it internally through safe medicine as it willact directly on the ovaries. There are many medicines in homoeopathy which can treated safely. Along with it do regularly exercise and avoid high carbohydrate food.

Hello, ideally you should be resting in early 1st trimester if your previous abortion was in 1st trimester and should be on progesterone support after the petal heart rate has been established.
