Hi I'm 26 years old female and missed my periods. Now it is 14th week nd my pregnancy test and ultrasound is negative. But I can feel some variation in my abdomen. What should I do? I'm very stressed.

Hello, As there are many causes of missed menses apart from pregnancy like nutritional deficiency, PCOS, stress/ tension, excessive exertion, any other or recent medical condition, side effect of any medication, hormonal imbalance, etc. So, we need to rule out any causative factor. Take more of green vegetables, nuts, salads, seasonal fruits, yellow coloured veggies, milk & milk products, plenty of water and enough of sleep & rest. Take homoeopathic medication for your irregular menses ? Schwabe's Pulsatilla 200/ once daily for 10 days (not to take during menstrual flow), Schwabe's Five Phos. And Alfaalfa Tonic ? both thrice daily for 1 month. There after revert me back..take care.

Natural conception rate for a women at 44 years of age is very less. As with the growing age both the quantity & quality of egg as well as fertility decreases. So first of all get both husband and wife's all required tests for fertility done, and consult infertility specialist for help without wasting much time.

Irregular mens at this age is usually due a condition called polycystic ovaries. Your daughter needs to get a few hormonal tests done- fsh, lh, prolactin, tft, testosterone and a pelvic usg. Further treatment will depend on the results.

As you are having pain and no menses for 3 months it is better that you get the ultrasound done. It is usually during this age menses are usually irregular because of insufficient hormonal secretion. Still at the age of 17 years it should have been normal. You might be suffering from pcod which can be diagnosed with the ultrasound.

Loving Your Kids The Right Way

MDS, Fellow of Academy of General Education (FAGE), BDS
Dentist, Ahmedabad
Loving Your Kids The Right Way

Loving our children in a real way:

  • Loving my daughter/son comes so easily when 
  • She/he wins a competition, 
  • Gets high marks, 
  • Listens to me, 
  • Keeps her room clean, 
  • Finishes her food, 
  • Pays attention while studying, 
  • Sleeps on time, 
  • Never raises her voice and 
  • Practices dance/singing/drawing without me reminding her.

That's the easy way to love.

However when I look back at my childhood I realize that the moments I really wanted love badly were when 

  • I scored less marks, 
  • Failed in a competition, 
  • Couldn't fall asleep,
  • Didn't feel like studying,
  • Wanted to laze around,
  • Didn't finish the tiffin,
  • Didn't complete homework,
  • Forgot an important assignment,
  • Fought with a friend,
  • Had a heartbreak,
  • Committed a mistake,
  • Felt guilty,
  • Felt lonely.

These were the moments when I needed my parents the most, I needed their assurance that it is okay to be human, to fall, to get hurt and what I wanted to listen in those moments was" I know it hurts, but i'm here with you. Maybe we can't do anything about what happened, but i'm here with you. And I love you for what you are, always"

This is real and unconditional way to love!
Yes I wanted to hear" I love you" loud and clear. It was the only thing that could heal my heart. Love!

It's the moments when we lose control of ourselves that we want someone to hold us, isn't it? you don't need to be perfect. Just be real!

Do you chose love the easy way or the real, unconditional way?

Today no matter what your child does, choose love and see how it heals you as a parent.

Its called diaper rash. Try to clean the area with wet nappy every time before you use a new pad. Then apply candid powder on the dry surface & folds of skin beside vagina. Trim the bikini hairs. Your problem solved!

My right breast is producing milk like substance and no other symptoms found. M sure that I'm not pregnant then what is it. What should I do? Can these be breast Cancer. Kindly suggest me.

M.Ch - Surgical Oncology, MS - General Surgery, MBBS
Oncologist, Delhi
Many times, because of hormonal imbalances, the breast may abnormally produce milk like substance. I would recommend you to get serum prolactin levels done. Also get an ultrasound of both the breasts done if you are less than 40 years of age, otherwise get a digital mammography of both the breasts and review with reports for further advise.

Simple ways to reduce risk of falling, especially for the elderly

Simple ways to reduce risk of falling, especially for the elderly
Preventing falls is a special concern for men and women with osteoporosis. Falls can increase the risk of fracturing a bone in the hip, wrist, spine, or other part of the skeleton. In addition to the environmental factors listed below, falls can also be caused by impaired vision and/or balance, chronic diseases that affect mental or physical functioning, and certain medications, such as sedatives and some antidepressants. It is important that individuals with osteoporosis be aware of any physical changes that affect their balance or gait, and that they discuss these changes with their health care provider.

Outdoors:
1. Use a cane or walker for added stability.
2. Wear rubber-soled shoes for traction.

Simple tips
1. Make sure lighting is adequate especially night as falls are common when trying to walk in dark.
2. Eliminate clutter in the house and neatly strap loose wires etc so it does not come in the way.
3. Avoid using rugs where foot or cane can catch while walking.
4. Make sure there are bars to hold on to in the bathroom.
5. Elderly patients will reduce fall risk if they do gentle stretching exercises daily and keep up their walking.

I have breast tumor. After operation its not cure. Some time painful. Please help me.

MBBS, MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Hyderabad
Madam, you claim to have had a tumor in breast and got it operated, tumor per se is a vague term for a lay person, in medical terms it indicates malignancy unless specified as benign (innocent). It is mandatory on the part of the surgeon to send the excised tumor for a biopsy, if so you should have mentioned the nature of tumor excised. In view of incomplete information I cannot give you any opinion.

Constipation - Know Its Naturopathic Treatment!!

Constipation - Know Its Naturopathic Treatment!!

 

Constipation is the most widely found problem of mankind. Almost the largest number of drugs, are available for the problem and largest sums of money are spent by people to get rid of it. Even then the medical science does not recognise it as a serious disease.

To some extent they are correct. Constipation is not a disease as such, it is merely a condition but it can be responsible for attacks of almost all diseases which are effecting the humans. Unfortunately it is also spreading wildly as the civilization is spreading and eating refined foods is becoming fashionable. Many drugs also cause constipation. If so the prescribing doctor should be immediately contacted for change of the prescription.

The present treatment of the condition is drugs of three different types.
A) Lubricating
B) Bulk forming
C) Agitating

Lubricating drugs include various oils, milk of magnesia etc. These drugs lubricate the elementary canal and/or lubricate the faeces and thus facilitate the movement. These are the least damaging type of drugs. Yet they can make even undigested foods to pass through the system or cause diarrhoea.

Bulk forming drugs include isabgol, rice bran etc. When the bulk is increased the faeces move and are expelled faster. It should be remembered that these are just substitutes for the fibre which is lost during various processes adopted in kitchens. It is clearly foolishness to first throw away the natural fibre and replace it by purchasing substitutes from the market. Further rejected natural fibre carries away several essential nutrients with them, which are not replaced by the additives.

The agitating type drugs include several herbs and chemicals which are not acceptable to the system and therefore the system works extra harder to get rid of them. These ultimately tire out the system and weaken it. The weakened system requires more powerful drugs and the endless race starts. Thus this category causes maximum harm to the digestive system.

It is now obvious that all the above drugs are not the cure for constipation. These have only a onetime effect and can harm the system.

In fact the cure for constipation lies in life style itself. To get rid of it one should follow the following advice:

  • Avoid refined foods.
  • Eat maximum foods in raw form.
  • Eat lots of salads and fruits so that there is enough fibre in the food.
  • Avoid refined flour (Maida), polished rice etc.
  • Do some regular exercise so that the body, including gut is in good health.
  • Eat sprouted boiled pulses instead of pulses available in the market.
  • Do not peel all those vegetables which can be used without peeling. Even if peeling is absolutely necessary do by minimum possible.
  • Drink sufficient water. (Humans need about 3 litres of water every day).
  • Try discharge faeces twice a day-Morning and Evening.
  • Never ignore an urge. Attend to it as early as possible.

Even then sometimes the faeces become dry and hard. In all such cases instead of applying pressure it is better to take a plain water enema (Douche). It is totally harmless, does not form habit, and convenient to take. It is very important to get rid of constipation. Since constipation is the main cause of several diseases. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a yoga-and-naturopathy.

You should share it with your doctor. If there is any complication develop in this pregnancy the doctor will be able to correlate the reason for the complication. For example if the cervix is scarred and does not dilate may be due to the injury to the Cs during previous abortion operation. This is an example only. Better to shRe it with doctor so that she can anticipate the problems that might occur and look for its specifically and be careful. It is for your welfare.
