It is difficult to give advice in such cases from a long distance and we need to examine you properly and analyse the previous papers to give any opinion, but looking at the history as you have narrated, it seems that you may be having an incompetent cervix. It is a condition where the cervix is weak and is unable to hold the weight of the growing baby as the pregnancy advances. This may need application of a cervical stitch in the third month in next pregnancy but final opinion can be given only by the Gynaecologist who is examining you.

You are already 31 so get all your hormonal profile done to know your state of fertility, also get an ultrasound pelvis done. As such there are no precautions, it will depend on whatever your reports comes out to be. You need to maintain healthy lifestyle and diet.

Please go to a gynecologist for regular check-up and do some tests. Preventive health check-up should be basically followed by all the women. One should not deny or ignore health problems as it can be easily diagnosed and treated accordingly. Leading a healthy and happy life should be the first priority irrespective of any back ground.

Very unlikely that your girlfriend is pregnant. If you have not done intercourse after she had her periods, then she cannot be pregnant. She is probably having some hormonal imbalance which could be because of unwanted 72 or due to some other stress. Go and see a local gynaecologist who can examine you, get a few blood tests and ultrasound done and relieve you of you confusion and worries.

Menorrhagia - Symptoms, Causes And Treatment

MD, MBBS, Advanced Infertility
Gynaecologist, Jalandhar
Menorrhagia - Symptoms, Causes And Treatment

Menorrhagia is menstrual condition characterized by an abnormal loss of blood or heavy, prolonged bleeding. Although heavy bleeding is not uncommon in premenopausal women, menorrhagia is a severe condition which generally interferes with your daily activities. If your vagina bleeds irregularly or between periods, in addition to such heavy bleeding that at least one pad or tampon gets soaked every few hours, it is highly recommended that you seek medical attention.

Symptoms
Signs and symptoms of menorrhagia include:

  1. Soaking through more than one tampon or sanitary pad for every few hours
  2. The need to use double sanitary protection
  3. Heavy bleeding for weeks on end
  4. The need to wake up at night to change your sanitary protection
  5. Restriction of daily activities due to heavy menstrual flow
  6. Symptoms of fatigue, such as excessive tiredness as well as shortness of breath

Causes
Although the exact causes are unknown, here are a few causes that may be responsible:

  1. Hormonal imbalance is when there is an hormone imbalance, the endometrium develops in excess and sheds away with menstruation
  2. In Ovary dysfunction, if your ovaries do not ovulate, your body won't be able to produce the hormone progesterone resulting in a hormonal imbalance problem which may lead to menorrhagia
  3. Uterine fibroids are benign tumors which start appearing in your childbearing years
  4. Polyps are small benign growths found on the uterine lining
  5. Adenomyosis occurs when your glands from the endometrium becomes embedded in the uterine muscle
  6. By using Intrauterine device (IUD) menorrhagia may occur as a side-effect
  7. Pregnancy complications, for instance, an ectopic pregnancy can cause it
  8. Inherited bleeding disorders, such as von Willebrand disease
  9. Certain medications like anti-inflammatory drugs
  10. Other medical conditions, like pelvic inflammatory disease or endometriosis

Treatment
Treatment for menorrhagia depends on a number of factors like the cause and severity of the condition, or your tolerance for specific therapies or medications.
Some drug therapies for menorrhagia include:

  1. Iron supplements
  2. Tranexamic acid
  3. Oral progesterone
  4. Non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs
  5. Oral contraceptives
  6. Hormonal IUD

If drug therapy is ineffective, other treatment options may include:

  1. Dilation and curettage
  2. Focused ultrasound ablation
  3. Uterine artery embolization
  4. Endometrial ablation
  5. Myomectomy
  6. Endometrial resection
  7. Hysterectomy

    If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

Top Tips for Aiding Digestion

Top Tips for Aiding Digestion

Top tips for aiding digestion


Too much food and drink? Keep these useful hints and homeopathic medicines in mind

General tips:

  • Drink a cup of boiled water in the morning before breakfast. This seems to cleanse the stomach and often works wonders.
  • Eat slowly. One of the main causes of indigestion is unchewed food.
  • Don’t eat food “piping hot”. Our stomachs are not meant to have hot foods inside them. A useful thing to remember is that if it is hot in the mouth it is hot in the stomach. This includes tea and coffee. Food and drinks that are too hot may disrupt enzymes and injure the lining of the stomach. So, always wait for it to cool.
  • Don’t eat on the hoof. Meals should be taken at a leisurely pace. If you eat on the move, there is more chance that digestion will not begin. Instead foods in the stomach and intestine will start to ferment, producing gases that bloat you.
  • Avoid eating fruit with the meal. Tempting though it is, because it seems lighter on the stomach than puddings, it is not good at the end of a meal. This is because fruit digests faster than dense proteins, so fermentation and gas accumulation may occur.  
  • If bloating is a persistent problem, try simplifying your meals. Instead of having lots of food groups at one meal try separating them. For exam­ple, proteins need acid enzyme diges­tive juices, whereas carbohydrates need alkaline enzyme digestive juices. When you have to break down both types all at once you are not achieving optimal enzymatic action, so some fermentation and gas accumulation may occur. 
  • Try taking slightly smaller servings and think twice about second help­ings. As a good rule of thumb, try to get into the habit of estimating the quantity you allow yourself using “nature’s food bowl”. Cup your two hands together as if you were using them to make a bowl. The quantity of food that would fill that “bowl” should be your maximum at any meal.
  • Make sure that you drink enough water. Ideally, hydrate your stomach with a glass of water half an hour before a meal.

Me and my wife are planning to have a baby from past two months. But she is not able to conceive what is the reason?

Hi dear. Infertility or inability to have children is a complex problem and can be due to many reasons. We normally suggest couples to try for atleast 6 months before trying to investigate for infertility. Both the woman and man are responsible for conception and to know the cause of infertility we need to test both. Basic ultrasound and hormone tests for woman as well as semen analysis for the male is needed to know the cause as there are multiple reasons for not conceiving, ranging from hormonal problems, stress, infections etc. So its necessary you visit a infertility specialist in your area for evaluation and treatment. All the best

How to prevent lifestyle diseases?

How to prevent lifestyle diseases?
How to prevent lifestyle diseases?

In the olden days, we had food scarcity and too much physical work. So obesity and lifestyle diseases were less among people. In those times people used to eat heavily when more food was available and eat less when no food was available. 

Then came the agricultural revolution era and a smart public distribution system. Food become abundant. It became impossible to change our centuries' old habit and we started eating more.

Then came industrial, it developments and opening up of markets. It created the following things:

Less physical work. Too much mental strain. Odd working hours. Availability of cheap tasty junk foods.

All these started leading to lifestyle diseases like obesity, hypertension and diabetes. 

Then came the medical era (the current period), when the incidences of the above said diseases started growing out of proportions. Nowadays we have started realizing that 

We are over eating. We are eating junk calories, food with high fat and salt content. We are leading a sedentary lifestyle.

We have started seeing our parents, relatives, friends getting these diseases, and we have come to know that there is no escape, since they too lead a similar lifestyle. This is the awareness era. Now availability of resources like internet and health magazines are changing people's mind to lead a healthy and fit life.

How to lead a healthy lifestyle and avoid lifestyle diseases?

Stop smoking, reduce alcohol consumption to once a week (two drinks only, it is better if avoid alcohol. Control your existing illnesses like diabetes and hypertension by dedicated dieting and regular consultation with your physician.
Physical activity: 40 minutes a day, minimum 5 days a week. Stop junk foods completely, reduce sugar, salt and oil consumption.
Sleep well (5-8 hours). Everybody has a different biological clock. A refreshing night's sleep varies from person to person. For some 5 hours is enough, for some they need 8 hours. Find out which person you are and start sleeping for the correct time.

You cant know till your period is missed and urine or blood test is done after that. For having frequent bathroom breaks do urine routine test to rule out infection.

Hello- Virgin vagina is always tight, its a gift not a problem. Do proper foreplay before sex, and apply artificial lubrication during penis insertion. It will ease the sex for the first timers.

Go to your doctor and get detailed investigations for both of you and your husband. PCOS patients usually respond well to infertility treatments. Along with drugs, you must control your weight and diet. All the best.
