My period is two days late and have tested my self for pregnancy and its negative. Could it be that am suffering for PCOS. Whaf medication can I take.
Hello. I am 26 years old. Unmarried. I got my 1st period when I was 14 and ever since then almost for 10-11 years I had irregular cycles. The treatments would either help temporarily or not at all. However, since the last 2 years my periods became regular, all by itself. Although, even if I had regular periods some months here and there my bleeding would be scanty and my periods would last 3 days instead of 5. I went to a gynecologist and she ran a couple of tests. This is the report. When I was 23. I had a scan that showed polycystic appearing ovaries. At 25 I had one more scan where everything is normal and the ovaries are normal in size and echo texture (right ovary 2.9×1.7 cm and left ovary 3.1x2.0 cm) The following are my blood reports as off 3/7/2017 Hemoglobin - normal Thyroid - normal Blood sugar - normal DHEA Sulphate - 295.5 (18-391) for females of 21-30. Free testosterone: 4.88 (0.04-4.18) Thw following is my complain 1. Mild facial hair (pic attached) 2. Acne right before periods. 3. As off today. My periods are regular. I surely get them each month however thr is a delay of 5-8 days and I get breast pain. 4. Pubic hair type a few hairs here and thr on thighs. About my lifestyle I am not overweight. Though I hav to loose a lil weight off my hips. I brisk walk for half n hour not very regular though I hav a desk job Normal healthy vegetarian diet. My questions. As ans when I developed this mild facial hair. I feel terrible. Will this b the case for life? If I improvise on my execerise and diet routine will acne n facial hair improve? From the symptoms n reports. Am I normal? Am I infertile? Will I ever be able to have a child? I hav read abt pcos on the net. I feel I am gng through something horrific. Pls guide me.
Spinal surgery becomes inevitable when back pain cannot be managed with medications and/or exercise. This is a major decision and requires planning for many things before, during, and after the surgery.
Before a spinal surgery- This preparation will help in smooth recovery, especially if you do not have a full-time caretaker.
Discontinue pain killers: Discontinue pain killers at least 10 to 14 days before surgery. These are blood thinners and can prolong bleeding during the surgery.
Prepare for blood loss: Most people experience some blood loss, but not excessive.
Use a toilet seat raiser: Sitting and getting up from the toilet seat may be difficult. The seat raiser is used to increase the height, making this movement easy.
Enable easy access to common items: Before heading for the surgery, keep things which are commonly used within easy reach. This will help reduce movement and avoid searching (especially if someone else is going to be doing it).
Stock it up: Cooking may not be feasible during the initial postop period, and so it is advisable to stock up food items (ready to eats, fruits, soups, etc.) which will come in handy.
Slip-ons: Bending down and tying shoes may not be easy, so slip-ons can be used.
Caregiving: It is always advisable to have someone stay over with you during the initial postop days. They could help with regular household chores, cooking, etc.
Lifestyle changes: Ensure you eat well in the days before surgery, quit smoking, quit/use moderate amounts of alcohol, and exercise as advised by your surgeon.
After Surgery- Post surgery, there will be some pain and limitation of movement. It is important to understand that adherence to post-op instructions will improve the success rate of the surgery. Also, recovery time for spine surgery is slightly longer and affects overall quality of life, so psychological preparation is required.
Postoperative medications: These will be given to control infection and pain in the immediate postop period, and should be taken without fail
Rehab: The surgeon will recommend physical therapy and rehab exercises which need to be followed. Complete recovery may take anywhere between 3 to 12 months. During this time, care should be taken to avoid repeat injury.
Weight management: With excess weight, there is too much strain on the lower disks. Therefore, weight should be managed to reduce this strain.
Smoking and alcohol should be completely stopped, as healing can be hampered.
With some preparation, spinal surgery can be sailed through smoothly. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
I had unprotected sex on 3rd day of period then I took only one dose of ipill within 5 hrs but the withdrawal bleeding didn’t occur I took an ipill 6 days ago what should I do now?
We had sex in two weeks back. But we are not sure. We used condoms. Still not sure whether sperm moved or not. These week is the end of periods. As per last period cycle 2-2 would be the period date. Period happened today I mean 1st August. But period blood is too dark. Do I need to fear on pregnancy doc?
I had sex with girl who's vagina was infected so I want to know any home remedies to disinfected the penis.
I am 20 of age and I have this question in my mind. When I press my boobs they secrete white liquid which I assume to be milk. I know the fact that they are meant for this but does this happen at such young ages. Is it normal to go under this.
Hiii She is suffering from extreme pain during periods on 2nd and 3rd day Please suggest why is this happening or is it natural.
Here are some tips on types of contraceptive methods
Hi I’m Dr. Soni Anand. I’m a consultant obstetrician-gynecologist and infertility expert. This is a very controversial topic and everyone wants to use something but they don’t know what to use, how to use and for how long to use and whether it is suitable for him and his partner, or not. There are basically 4 modalities of Contraception:
(a) Intra-Urine contraception device also known as Copper T, Multi load, Mirena etc. I think this is the most comfortable for the patient and it is usually applied on the 4th or 5th day of periods and if properly applied, there is no problem in the continuation of these devices. Usually in few patients you can have periods for a cycle or two but then it settles down. We have medication for that and second thing- you have to get a checkup, every 4-5 month intervals at your doctor, and I think this is the best method because it does not require every day motivation and has no hormonal side effects.
(b) Pills or OC Pills, there is a common myth that it causes weight gain but now a days like everything, the Pill has also evolved and now we have ultra-low dosage pills and they get the desired effect and prevents pregnancy but does not have a long term side effect which existed when there were high doses. And you have to start the pill on Day 1 and continue it for 21 days and then there is a pill free period where you’ll have your periods and then can again restart from Day 1 and it can be used under medical supervision as long as you want.
(c) Condoms, it is not a very reliable method because it is partner dependent and can be used as a spacing method if they are willing.
(d) The terminal method of contraception, i.e. the family planning surgery or tuber ligation. It is suggested to those patients who have completed their families and can opt for this permanent method.
My message to my viewers is that contraception is a confusing matter and if you can’t decide yourself, consult a doctor.
If you want to consult me, you can reach me through Lybrate. Either by a text or through telephone or you can book a physical appointment.
