Reproductive Health & Menstrual Cycle

Reproductive Health & Menstrual Cycle

With an upsurge in the number of women suffering from dysfunctional reproductive systems and a myriad of gynecological problems, resulting in irregular periods, infertility and several other complications, it is of paramount importance to keep a record of the dates and duration of your monthly cycles. This is not only useful for future reference when you visit a gynecologist, but it also helps you to understand if there are delays in period or excess of bleeding in any particular month. 

Why is tracking your menstrual cycles important?

Keeping a track of the menstrual cycles is a mandatory exercise for women who are thinking about pregnancy or those trying to avoid it. It is advisable to abstain from intercourse for a few days before and after the period, which is the prime time for ovulation. Keeping track of your periods gives you a clear indicator of whether you have become pregnant because delay in the menstrual onset implies pregnancy. The reverse is also true; if you are trying to get pregnant, conception is usually fruitful on these days of maximum ovulation, which you can easily calculate based on your well maintained menstrual record.

How should you go about keeping track of your menstruation?

While it not possible to note down every possible aspect of the menstruation in a notebook, the easiest way of maintaining a planner is to mark the first day of each period on the calendar. The difference between two consecutive periods will give you your cycle lengths.

In addition you can choose to make a note of how heavy the bleeding is, or if there are changes in mood and appetite on those days. You will then be well prepared for your next visit to the gynecologist.

Yes sex can be practice during pregnancy. After 5 months of pregnancy one needs to change the position of male partner. Intercourse can be practiced in male standing position or sideways position. Male partner should not lie on the tummy or growing fetus.

5 Sweeping Reasons to Drop that Hand Sanitizer

5 Sweeping Reasons to Drop that Hand Sanitizer

5 Sweeping Reasons To Drop That Hand Sanitizer You Carry Everywhere!

Although hand sanitizers offer you the convenience to clean your hands sans soap and water, and help in killing germs, these convenient health tools also come with their share of negatives.

Here's why you should drop that bottle of hand sanitizer, every time you can avoid and go conventional with soap and water:

1. Creation of Superbugs and Destruction of Cells
Although the ingredient triclosans prevent the development of bacteria, it does more harm than good. Studies show that it aids creation of superbugs (different types of bacteria that are resistant to certain forms of antibiotics). Furthermore, according to a 2014 study, triclosans have also been found to spur the development of breast cancer cells, not to mention the destruction of brain cells, according to research conducted by the university of california.

2. Causes Disruption in Hormones
Excessive use of hand sanitizers has also been found to bring about abnormal hormonal problems. Studies reveal that the triclosan ingredient can alter the way hormones function in the body, enabling bacteria to be able to adapt and become more resistant to antibiotics.

3. Development of Life-Threatening Health Problems
Another ingredient in hand sanitizers that play a role in preventing the growth of bacteria is parabens. This ingredient has been found to be a potent contributing factor in many health problems such as cancer, skin irritation, endocrine problems, to name a few.

4. Causes Skin Damage in The Long Run
As an active ingredient in hand sanitizers, alcohol can have an adverse effect on your health. It breaks down the protective outermost layer of skin, rendering it easy for toxins like parabens or bpa (bisphenol a) that is found in plastics to penetrate your skin easily.

5. Makes You Resistant to Antibiotics
Using hand sanitizers can make you resistant to antibiotics, thereby lowering your resistance to diseases. They may affect your body's immunity by killing off good bacteria that are responsible for keeping you safe from disease-causing bad bacteria. A study conducted in 2011 found that health care workers who used hand sanitizers more than soap and water are 6 times more likely to fall prey to outbreaks of norovirus (a highly infectious virus that causes viral gastroenteritis)

Dear Doctor, Kindly list out the symptoms of pregnancy when on Duphaston 10 mg twice a day. I ovulated on cd 21 and started the tablet on cd 19 night. I also took a HCG injection as I have PCOS. I am due for my periods on 2nd march. I am confused if I have to continue the tablet or stop. If I have to continue how long should I and when can I take a pregnancy test. I am spotting light pink yesterday and today which is lite. Not sure if it is periods or IB.

Duphaston is progesterone hormone given for High risk pregnancy, once conception has taken place. It acts against conceiving if given earlier. Spotting is starting of period as an effect on rebound of stopping progesterone/duphaston no harm in taking hcg after blood test for hcg confirms pregnancy around 14th day of cycle-no harm but no gain if given earlier.

Super Fact of the Day: The total surface area of your lungs is equal to that of a tennis court!
Your lungs have thousands of branching bronchi and small grape shaped alveoli for the efficient oxygenation of blood. Each of these are further full of microscopic capillaries which contain carbon dioxide and oxygen.

The reason why your lungs are so large is because it allows for the easy exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide, ensuring you stay properly oxygenated at all times

I used to press my gf one breast every time I spend with her, my frnd said that pressing single breast will make one breast big and another one small, is it myth or fact? Please suggest.

No only breast feeding on one side can cause small Breast on feeding side and larger on non feeding side. But prolonged pressing for longer time (over months) can cause the pressing breast bigger than other.

Hello- you can dilate your vaginal opening by insertion of penis with lubrication/or you can dilate by inserting more fingers in it. Once the passage gets dilated it will automatically widens the space due to hormonal changes and will ease the penitration of penis nxt time. Use proper lubrication during all this.

Hi mam the white discharge that you are talking about is called leucorhea. It is not a disease but a sympton of any underlying infection. Also irregular menses may be an effect of hormonal imbalance. First thing you need to do is get your ultrasonology done. Then post the report and this problem can be fixes with homeopathic medicinces safely. Regards.

Artiji, Thanks for the query. Your information is very general. There is no mention about current TSH levels as well as T4. Unless those are given no comment can be made. Secondly looking at your weight and height it is clear that you are over weight with a BMI of 28.01 kgs/M2(normal <23 kgs/M2). This shows your hypothyroidism is not in check. For conception to occur hypothyroidism has to be very well controlled with TSH values <2 mU/L. So please come back with necessary details, preferably in private conversation then I will be able to guide. Thanks

45-50 is the age when menopause occurs. It might b reason tht you may b approaching menopause so harmonal imbalance can b the reason also. So its better to undergo ultrasound scan before starting any treatment.
