I am suffering from vaginal infection from last four months. Had seen three doctors but it is going for that time and again retaining back have done random sugar test which resulted nill. What I need to do now.

You should insert clingen pessary every night for 3 days and take fas-3 kit. This kit should also be given to your partner also and use condoms for 7 days. Kit is self explanatory as when to take is written on the back of kit and it is a single day course. If you r not in relation then take only the kit, do not insert the pessary in vagina. If you r not in relation and if the discharge is not fowl smelling or itching, then it is likely to be physiological leukorrhoea, which will subside on its own, once you start gaining weight.

Until your hormones level does not get normal menses won't appear. Sonography is to just diagnose the prblm. Menses does appear even in condition of cyst. You have to take suitable homoeopathic treatment to get permanent cure.

Of course it will affect your baby. Your baby will be reactive to all your feelings and actions. Anything that affects the mother has a direct bearing on the well being of the unborn child. Talk to your husband and gynecologist to find ways of sorting out the problems at home and finding some peace for the sake of the child. If you are happy, the child will also experience it and will feel good. Get excited, learn all about child rearing and get some special information from your gynecologist to foster good feelings. Every thought and feeling that you go through is communicated to the child and that child must feel wanted and awaited with all the excitement possible. That is your responsibility. Meet with a counselor to discuss the family situation and if necessary you could move to a separate home and live peacefully. Even if it a temporary arrangement, it is worth it.

Got married last years April and conceived in the month of august but we didn't want child that time so have done abortion through medicine. Now we are planning for a child from last two months. Please let me know few things 1. Can last Abortion cause any difficulty in conceiving the child in future? 2. How can I recognize the ovulation period? 3. Can a lady conceive only during ovulation time I mean a single day in a month cycle? 4. Can I sure will be helpful to know ovulation day, how and when can I use it?

The answers to your question are: 1. Can last abortion cause any difficulty in conceiving the child in future? yes, ststistically speaking the chances of pregnancy are reduced a bit say 10% after abortion. But in reality this may not mean that everyone has a problem. So try and see. 2. How can I recognize the ovulation period? it is highly difficult to" predict" ovulation. Its an event which happens in the body, and there are no symptoms of it. Some women can guess it from the mild pain in midcycle, or a spotting in midcycle, or excess thin white discharge at midcycle. But these are not 100% predictive of ovulation. The only test denoting ovulation is ultrasound of folicle, which is done from d9 onwards but even in a lady with regular cycles, ovulation doesnot happen each month, it happens erratically. So on a n average one can just have sex on the" fertile" days which are the most probable days to have ovulation and see. If your cycles are regualr, you can calculate the expected date of menses (edm), once this is known, count 14 days backwards, and you will get a date. Keep 3 days on either side of this date, and thus these 6 days will be the fertile days of the cycle, with high chances of ovulaiton. Have sex on these days and you would have done the best you can for becoming pregnant 3. Can a lady conceive only during ovulation time I mean a single day in a month cycle? yes. At ovulation, the female egg called ovum is liberated in the body, which goes into the fallopian tube and rests there, awaiting the sperms. This ovum has a life of 24-48 hours, and if not fertilised, it dies off. Hence the ovulation knowledge can can help a person conceive by enabling sex at the required time. 4. Can I sure will be helpful to know ovulation day, how and when can I use it? I have already answered this in the upper two questions.

With whatever information you have provided, I can suggest you 3 options: 1. The injection dmpa taken every 3 months - but the bp should not be more than 160/100 and no diabetes of long standing. The lady will have to get the shot every 3 months. It is available on all stores and also in govt hospitals the Dr. Will check her for eligibility to take the injection 2. The cut - if there is no abnormality in the uterus, cut is best and tension free 3. Avoiding sex or using a condom on days 10 to 20 of a cycle which are the danger period for pregnancy.

Role of Homeopathy in Treating Type II Diabetes

MD - Homeopathy, Doctor of Homeopathic Medicine (H.M.D., BHMS
Homeopath, Delhi
Role of Homeopathy in Treating Type II Diabetes

Type II Diabetes is also known as Non-Insulin Dependent Diabetes Mellitus (NIDDM) or Adult-onset Diabetes. Diabetes mellitus is a syndrome characterized by increased level of sugar (glucose) in the blood due to deficiency or inactivity of hormone 'Insulin' that is absolutely necessary to monitor glucose metabolism of body. This is a metabolic disorder that is primarily characterized by insulin resistance, relative insulin deficiency and consecutively hyperglycemia. Diabetes is prevalent worldwide and if not attended properly, it may lead to serious complications.

Causes of Type II Diabetes:

Diabetes basically occurs due to defective insulin secretion combined with defective responsiveness of the body to the insulin (also called Insulin resistance). Due to both these factors, hyperglycemia starts occurring in the body. It is strongly associated with obesity and with increasing age. A strong inheritance pattern has been noted in cases of type 2 diabetes. Sedentary lifestyle, pregnancy, hypertension, cardiovascular diseases, etc pose as risk factors for developing Diabetes.

Type 2 diabetes can begin at any age though it is not very common in childhood. It usually begins with insulin resistance, a condition in which the body does not use insulin properly. At first, the pancreas keeps up with the added demand by producing more insulin but later it loses the ability to secrete enough insulin in response to meals. This ultimately results in Hyperglycemia (high levels of glucose in circulation).

Homeopathic Treatment for Type II Diabetes:

Diabetes is a constitutional disorder as it is an offshoot of constitutional defects (genetic factors, altered immunity) having an impact on the entire constitution of an individual. Hence it calls for an in-depth constitutional approach for its management.

Homeopathy is based on the principle that disease is a total affliction of body. Moreover, homeopathy recognizes importance of the underlying causes such as genetic and inherited factors as the root of any ailment of the body. Homeopathic medicines prescribed on such criteria plays a crucial role in management of many deep-rooted, chronic, difficult diseases; one amongst them being Diabetes.

When we talk about diseases like diabetes, we talk in terms of management rather than cure. Homeopathic treatment along with intake of hypoglycemic drugs and/or insulin can prevent the progress and the complications associated with this condition. Moreover timely administered homeopathic medicines help in maintaining the levels of exogenous insulin and hypoglycemic drugs at minimum possible dosage and in preventing the further progress of the disease. However, it may be noted that there is no substitute to insulin in homeopathy. The role of a healthy diet and exercise cannot be underestimated along with all the above treatment measures.

Piles in pregnancy :-



Coping with haemorrhoids when pregnant

Piles, also known as haemorrhoids, are enlarged and swollen veins in or around the lower rectum and anus. Anyone can get piles – they don't just happen in pregnancy. When you're pregnant, piles can occur because hormones make your veins relax.

Piles may itch, ache or feel sore. You can usually feel the lumpiness of piles around your anus. They may also bleed a little and can make going to the toilet uncomfortable or painful. You may also notice pain when passing a stool (faeces, poo) and a discharge of mucus afterwards. Sometimes, you may feel as though your bowels are still full and need emptying.  

Piles usually go away within weeks after the birth.

How to ease piles

Constipation can cause piles. If this is the case, try to keep your stools soft and regular.

You can help to ease piles, and prevent them, by making some changes to your diet and lifestyle, such as:

eating plenty of food that is high in fibre, like wholemeal bread and fruit and vegetables, and drinking plenty of water – this can help to prevent constipation, which can make piles worse, avoiding standing for long periods taking regular exercise to improve your circulation using a cloth wrung out in iced water to ease the pain – hold it gently against the piles if the piles stick out, push them gently back inside using a lubricating jelly avoiding straining to pass a stool, as this may make your piles worse after passing a stool, cleaning your anus with moist toilet paper instead of dry toilet paper patting, rather than rubbing, the area.

There are medicines that can help soothe inflammation around your anus. These treat the symptoms, but not the cause, of piles. Ask your doctor, if he/she can suggest a suitable ointment to help ease the pain. Don't use a cream or medication without checking with them first.
