Improper digestion could be the reason. But at the same time overeating or eating food very fast can also cause burping check for the same and correct it.

Endometriosis slowly destroys the tubes, making natural pregnancy more difficult to get as time goes by. Ovary function is also disturbed. IVF is the only way for those who are unable to conceive.

I think by using the term" call out" you mean to say that you pass stool. If yes then you may be suffering from any of the various intestinal ailments. So please get a stool microscopy done and revert back to me with reports. I think I may have the solution to your problem.

Hello sir, I am 25 years old and I have diahria problem. What should i do? Please tell me.

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

Diet and lifestyle advices: 1. Light, easy to digest food articles such as liquid rice, porridge are recommended. Soups made from lentils are also good in diarrhoea. Fruits like sweet lime, oranges, apple, melons are allowed. 2. Mix one teaspoon of sugar and half a teaspoon of common salt in a cup of water. Small doses of this mixture (around a quarter cup) can be given whenever the patient is thirsty. 3. Take one teaspoon of isabgol (psyllium husk) with one cup of yogurt. 4. Take 1 tab sporolac thrice a day/ 3 days.

Hi Doctor, Six years back, In sleep I had a sharp pain in the inner anus. From then, I wasn't able to control my anus (sphincter) muscle and I was getting that pain then there. Controlling in the sense, I cannot able to close it fully how hard I try. I could feel the movement (contraction and expansion) was very minimal. So my anus, wasn't to able expand to the fullest and later I started to develop constipation because of this. So constipation led to make a small bump in the right side of the anus. I realized that there was something not right. Over the four years span, I got the anus pain then and there, and after every pain, gradually the anus ring (i don't know whether its External or internal anal sphincter) got very rigid. From then I cannot expand it, I was able only to shrink it to a minimal extend and not fully. I was really afraid to go a doctor then. Then a year back from now, I went to a doctor, he said that I have anal fissure. I visited another doctor and he said its hemorrhoids and I had a laser operation for that. After, my anus become really small, only soft stools can pass. The initial source of the problem still exits. The operation made the condition worst and it made my anus really small. I visited the doctor from who I took the operation and explained this. He said that everything is okay and told me not worry. From then, I don't know what to do. Now passing stool daily morning became a difficult task for me and since my anus is small, I cannot take shit in a single time and that added more to the constipation. My anus ring (sphincter) become really really rigid and solid. Not able to expand and able to shrink only very little amount. I cannot hold stool if its commit urgent, since I cannot shirk it to the fullest. Every time when explain all these things to a doctor, they consider that my problem is anal fissure or hemorrhoids. But the problem is really not that. From my personal experience, I say it because for of the inability to control the anus (outer sphincter) muscle. I really stuck with this and I don't know how to proceed. Can you please help me? Thanks.

You should get your semen tested to confirm that there is low sperm count. If it is low then you can be treated for that. Other problems can be solved by taking multivitamins tablets after proper investigations.
