lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. If you have hypothyroidism and PCOS then it is better to consult an endocrinologist. If you are on treatment for hypothyroidism then TSH should be maintained around 3 to 4 mU/L. EVen PCOS can be controlled with proper treatment. Blood glucose PP 170 mg, shows a pre-diabetic state. It is necessary to take a number of precautions like avoiding sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, bakery items and colas. Plus regular exercise for over 1 hour a day and restricted diet. If hypothroidism is not properly treated then body pain (muscle pain and joint pains) can be there. If you are interested please come with detais like thyroid test results, HbA1c% and fasting glucose level and height & weight, then I will be able to gude specifically. Thanks.

Is there any chance with Peron having UTI medical history can get gonorrhea ?at initially I thought it is caused due to STD but the partner doesn't have any problem and it's been more than a month even in case if the partner have gonorrhea by when we could recognize in men?

MD-Ayurveda, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Sexologist, Haldwani
Hello- Gonorrhea is a sexually transmitted bacterial infection that, if untreated, may cause infertility. It is only caused by unsafe sexual relationship and nothing else. Symptoms include painful urination and abnormal discharge from the penis or vagina. Men may experience testicular pain and women may experience pain in the lower stomach. In some cases, gonorrhoea has no symptoms.

Coccydynia - Tailbone Pain

Physiotherapist, Guwahati
Coccydynia - Tailbone Pain

Coccydynia - Tailbone Pain: 

The back bone or spine is made of a series of bones extending all the way from the neck (cervical) to the tail (coccyx). These joints, like others, are prone to inflammation, sprain and strain, some more than the others. The coccyx in particular is highly prone to inflammation and can lead to localized pain, which is very typical, with the pain in the tailbone. This is known as coccydynia. 

What is coccydynia?

  • Literally, coccydynia translates to tailbone pain.
  • It is characterized by a sharp, localized pain between the buttocks in the tail bone.
  • It is often caused by injury to the pelvic area or the tail bone.
  • Sitting and/or leaning against the buttocks make it worse.
  • Pregnancy, when the additional hormones relax on the pelvic floor, also leads to increased pain of the tailbone.

The pain can be easily confused with other conditions like sciatica, fractured tailbone, tailbone infections like shingles, etc. However, for a trained medical person, the symptoms of tenderness and pain are quite diagnostic. Pilonidal sinus, fistula, pudendal neuralgia is also same as coccydynia and show same symptoms. 


  • If there is a rash or inflammation, it needs to be evaluated further for additional problems.
  • Where possible, rest completely for a short period of time till the acute phase of pain subsides.
  • In case of injury, ensure there is no repeat injury to the same area.
  • Pain medications are used to relieve pain, where it is severe and intolerable.
  • In severe cases, cortisone injection may be given in the doctor s office. In addition to pain relief, it may even take care of the underlying problem per se.
  • Avoid sitting for prolonged periods where possible.
  • After the acute phase is over, when sitting for prolonged periods, sufficient padding is advised. This could be in the form of pillows or padded seats.
  • Sleeping on the sides is difficult, so sleep straight. If required, take a pillow in the middle.
  • Physiotherapy is also helpful in some people who have repeat attacks. This helps in pain management and controlling acute phases. There are specific tailbone stretches, which should be done under supervision.
  • Walking is one of the many effective ways to keep the tailbone unlocked, which helps in getting rid of the pain and avoiding spasms of the muscles around the tailbone.
  • Best internal manipulation and pain management can be done with coccyx exercise.
  • The time taken for healing of the tailbone depends on whether it is a simple bruise or a severe one. The former would heal completely in about four weeks, while the latter will take about 12 weeks.

Hello, we are couple had regular intercourse and did not missed middle 6-10 days of intercourse.

Homeopath, Howrah
Firstly get her pregnency test done, if it comes negative and bleeding was for 4 to five days then it was normal period. And if test comes positive after which bleeding occured that means it may be missed abortion. Consult doctor for confirmation.

Vagina - How to Take Care of It Postpartum?

MBBS, MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology

Vagina - How to Take Care of It Postpartum?

Pregnancy can wreak havoc in your body; be it your hormones overflowing or the constant crying of your newborn that makes you agitated after a point of time. Your baby will probably be your top priority in times like these but maybe, you can put yourself on the list as well once in a while because carrying a human inside isn’t a very easy task.

Vaginal soreness
On the off chance that you suffered a vaginal tear or an episiotomy while delivering, the injury may sting for a couple of weeks. Broad tears may take more time to heal. Meanwhile, you can promote healing by:

  1. In case of sitting becoming uncomfortable, try sitting on a cushion or cushioned ring.
  2. Utilize a squeezer-bottle in order to pour lukewarm water over the vulva while you're urinating. Press a cleansed washcloth immovably against the injury when you hunker down for passing stool.
  3. Cool the injury using an ice compress, or place a cool witch hazel cushion between the wound and a clean sanitary napkin.
  4. Take stool softeners or analgesics as prescribed by your healthcare provider.
  5. For treatment of episiotomy wound in 1st week - betadine wash should be used 3-4 times a day.

While you're recovering, anticipate that the uneasiness will gradually reduce. Contact your doctor if the pain increases; the injury gets swollen, hot and excruciating; or if you notice a discharge with pus.

Vaginal discharge
Vaginal discharge (lochia) might be a problem for several weeks post-delivery. Expect a red, overwhelming stream of blood for the initial few days. The release will continuously decrease, getting to be watery and changing from pink or chestnut to yellow and finally white. Contact your doctor if:

  1. You have substantial vaginal drying
  2. The discharge has a foul scent
  3. You have a temperature of 100.4 F (38 C) or more

You may feel contractions for the initial few days post-delivery. These constrictions, which frequently seem like menstrual cramps help in preventing excess bleeding by compressing the vessels. These contractions have a tendency to get more intense with subsequent deliveries. Your healthcare supplier may suggest an OTC pain reliever as well. Contact a healthcare personnel in the event of fever or if the stomach area is tender to your touch. These symptoms and side effects could show a uterine disease.

MD - Homeopathy, BHMS
Homeopath, Palakkad
Polycystic ovarian syndrome can be completely cured with homoeopathic medicines. No side effects in homoeopathic medicines. We can prevent further recurrence. Avoid non veg and bakery items. Reduce intake of oily and fatty foods. Drink plenty of water. Daily walk about 45 mins. While taking homoeopathic medicines please avoid coffee and soft drinks for fast and better action of medicines. Nothing to worry. Homoeopathic medicines like apis, thuja, natrum mur, etc can cure pcos within 2 to 4 months if properly taken as per the instructions of a qualified homoeopath or me either directly or online. Please check thyroid profile, lh and fsh level. And also do usg pelvis and abdomen.

You should continue myonext. But main treatment of pcos is not drugs, it's life style changes- diet and exercise. If periods are delayed by more than 2 weeks, you should consult gynecologist to take drugs for starting periods.

Is there doing sex during earlier month of pregnancy is safe? And during 9 mth pregnancy.

Gynaecologist, Ghaziabad
Sex during pregnancy is quite safe provided you do not have any complications like pain abdomen, bleeding, low lying placenta, previous pregnancy mishaps etc. It is generally avoided in first 3 months as they are quite crucial for pregnancy. Other than that, if your obstetrician allows and both partners are comfortable, you can continue to have sex during pregnancy.

I have tried 7 times iui 2 times ivf still my wife has not conceived I am now 40 and my wife 35 her amh now is 2.3 and my sperm count is 20 million I am thinking of now going for once again for ivf which is best centre what precautions should we both take her tubes are patent and no endometriosis or cist also let me know how shall I improve my sperm count

MBBS (Gold Medalist, Hons), MS (Obst and Gynae- Gold Medalist), DNB (Obst and Gynae), Fellow- Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility (ACOG, USA), FIAOG
Gynaecologist, Kolkata
20 million count is normal, provided the morphology and motility are within normal limits. Again, for IUI and IVF, even lower sperm counts are sufficient. SO, you need not worry about your count. Now, AMH is marginal. SO, I think you should consider IVF with ovum donation as after 36 years, the success rate of IVF is lower. Again, she is not having endometriosis, tubal block etc. So, the chance of having pregnancy is good, if ovum quality is normal. All the best.

First of all you should avoid any drug to postpone your periods. Still if there is such conditions you can use contraceptive pill to delay menses.
