Periods frequency and quantity changes with age due to hormonal changes. As long as they are regular and moderate flow you need not worry. As you are above 40 you must go once in 2-3 years to your gynaecologist for a routine check up.

I think that you are under weight, and what is your hb%, the regularity of menses depends up on hormonal balance, and diet what you are taking daily. That is most probably due to under nutrition and anaemia! st you take proper diet and go for hormonal essesment.

This is not normal you need to get blood tests and sonography done to find cause and then take treatment accordingly.

Mere bulky uterus is never an indication for surgery. Often women who delivered number of children can have bulky uterus. What we need is to review the usg diagnosis and also to check if there is any problem inside her. If no, she does not need any drugs at all.

No way. But its not a matter of concern until your partner is extra interrogative. Clitoris rupture doesn't mean that it broke only because of sexual indulgence. However habitual coitus may be ascertained only by medical investigation which, I think, is not to be there at first night. However there are some her NB als which are used to smear vaginal walls to get constrictive effect of vagina to tighten it.

1) gout is one of the most common arthritis

2) it occurs due to increased uric acid levels which get deposited into joints, heart, kidneys, every patient with raised uric acid doesn't have gout.

All such patients not having gout need not be treated with uric acid lowering agents.

3) it commonly presents as acute sudden attack of red hot swollen joint, usually base of great toe, to begin with (see photograph below)

4) then patient will have a phase where he/she is completely normal. Later on attacks will be more in number, as disease progress they will be more frequent, the attack will last for longer days, and will spread to other joints

5) gout is not only a disease of joints, but it affects heart and kidneys too. It can kill! also severe disease develops 5-10 years after first attack.

6) that is why gout need to be treated with life long therapy, rather than only few days of therapy as commonly practiced incorrectly.

7) gout patients can have dals. Its a wrong concept and biggest myth in gout to stop dals. You have to anyways take medicine, dals are good for health, no use stopping them.

8) gout its along with their medicine should also consume lot of water (washes uric acid in urine). Should also limit alcohol and red meat (they can be allowed in reasonable quantity, no need of complete stopping, remember its a lifelong commitment:)

9) if you don treat gout properly

- the disease can spread to other joints (see hand joints photographs below), with severe damage to joints (see x-ray)

Hi. I have sex with my gf many times without condom but for not taking risk so that she may get pregnant I always used to take out penis from vagina when it seems that sperm is going to ejaculate during intercourse. My this act can prevent pregnancy. Is this a good sexual habit. Can it have effect on her sexual desire.

Kindly get a urine routine examination and urine culture and sensitivity test. Also get a checkup done from your gynaecologist. It could be vaginal infection too.

She is going through periods problems (like brownish periods and lesser ammount of flow) since 5/6 month and recently in 3 months she has lost 6 kgs of weight. For this problem as per consultation a usg has been done and according to usg she has 14.9mm*16.5 mm sist on left ovary. What is it? what is the best treatment available? what may be the cost of treatment? and what is the risk factor? mam, please guide me I am in deep trouble and tensions. Please

Women with pcos have also been found to have low-grade inflammation, contributing to insulin resistance. The exact cause of pcos, however, is still unknown. Yet, genetics is considered an important factor as pcos seems to run in families. The condition leads to issues like changes in the menstrual cycle, cysts on the ovaries and problems getting pregnant it can cause symptoms like infrequent or prolonged menstrual periods, excessive facial and body hair growth, weight gain, acne, oily skin, thinning hair or male-pattern baldness, and pelvic pain. The signs and symptoms tend to vary from one individual to another. Home remedies add one teaspoon of cinnamon powder to a glass of hot water. Drink it daily for a few months or until you are satisfied with the results alternatively, you can take this herb in supplement form after consulting your doctor. It is usually suggested to take one capsule (1, 000 mg) three times a day you can also include this spice in your diet by sprinkling cinnamon powder on your cereal, oatmeal, yogurt, cottage cheese, peanut butter sandwich and on other foods. Note: you need not take more than two teaspoons of this spice per day. If you are taking this herb to combat insulin resistance, consult your doctor first as it may lower your blood sugar level. Flaxseed flaxseed can also be used to combat pcos as it helps decrease androgen levels. It contains lignans that increase the production of sex hormone binding globulin (shbg) that binds testosterone in the blood, thereby preventing it from wreaking havoc in the body. Plus, being high in fiber, flaxseed helps slow down glucose metabolism and lower cholesterol levels. The omega-3 fatty acids in this superfood also reduce inflammation, lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of chronic diseases like heart disease. For more queries consult privately.

Go for urine pregnancy test kit at home and confirm by ultrasound. If everything OK, then you can have sex, but it's better to avoid during first and last 3 months.
