I have 3 years old baby boy. I have stopped breast feeding but still some times milk droplets appears on my nipples. Why?

BHMS, DEMS
Homeopath, Pune
I have 3 years old baby boy. I have stopped breast feeding but still some times milk droplets appears on my nipples. ...
Many moms find that their breasts continue to leak long after they wean. They may be able to express drops of fluid for months or even years after their baby weans, especially during a shower. The fluid that leaks out after weaning tends to look more like colostrum (thin, sticky, and yellowish) than white or creamy like mature milk. Since it took your breasts nine months of pregnancy to go through the physical changes that prepared them to make breast milk, it’s not surprising that they don’t go back to their pre-pregnancy state. Immediately after your baby weans. Leaking after weaning doesn’t become a concern unless the breasts produce a lot of milk for long periods of time. If the breasts remain swollen, hard or tender, or a large amount of milk continues to leak for months after weaning, then there may be a medical problem that should be evaluated by a doctor knowledgeable about lactation. Advise =Breast pads Breast pads can really be a savior. I prefer the cotton ones that are washable and reusable because they are more environmentally friendly, but there are disposable ones as well. There are also silicon pads that apply pressure to stop leaking. Just pop any of these in your bra and the leaks are at least contained. Some of these pads can show through an unpadded bra, making it look like you have really pronounced areolas, so padded bras are a good idea. If you ever find yourself in an emergency situation without pads, but fear a leak is eminent: Just use a menstrual pad or panty liner, cut down to fit, and stick it to the inside of your bra. Works like a charm. 2.Sage contains a form of estrogen, which will help your body dry up the breast milk. Sage tea can be found at any health food store. You can also make it at home if you have the sage spice. Simply rub 1 tsp. Of sage into a cup of hot water and let it steep for about 15 minutes. Add some honey or milk to the tea, as sage is very bitter. Drink one cup every six hours; this should help reduce your milk quickly. It is best to use sage tea to give your body comfort while you wait for the milk to dry. Avoid warm touch. While a cool touch can bring relief, a warm touch can trigger your body to produce breast milk. A warm or hot shower can stimulate milk production, so unless you are looking for a way to release a little milk, keep your breast away from warm water. Drink water. It is important to keep yourself hydrated. One myth that has serious negative impact is that if you reduce your water intake, this will reduce your milk supply. However, if you do not drink water, you will become dehydrated. This will increase the risk of developing not only a breast infection, but a urinary tract infection as well.

Sleep on The Left Side is Good For Health

General Physician (AM)
Alternative Medicine Specialist, Chandigarh
Sleep on The Left Side is Good For Health
Your sleeping position has an important influence on your digestive tract. In the past, monks preferred to lie down after their meals for ten minutes to improve their digestion.

Moreover, both Ayurveda (the most ancient oriental medicine) and the Indian alternative medicine advice their followers to sleep on the left side. Wondering why?

The left side of the human body is considered to be the dominant lymphatic side. Most of your body’s lymph flows into the thoracic duct, which is located on the left side. In its way, the lymph carries proteins, glucose, other metabolites and waste material.

It is purified in the lymph nodes and later drained into the left part of the human heart

Hi she had unprotected sex 3 days back and feels like she is pregnant and as the pill should only be taken with in 72hr which have already passed, is there an alternate medicine to stop pregnancy if in case she is pregnant.

Ulipristal acetate (known as ella in the US and Ellaone in Europe) was approved as an ECP in Europe in early 2009 and in the US in August 2010. It works for up to 120 hours after intercourse.[6] It prevents pregnancy by delaying or inhibiting ovulation and inhibiting follicle rupture.[11] Watson Pharmaceuticals announced the availability of ella in the United States on December 1, 2010, in retail pharmacies, clinics and one online pharmacy, KwikMed.[12]

Lybrate-user, first you do a upt at home. If its positive it solves your problem. If its negative you need to get medicine for bringing your periods first. As such success rate of iui is low about 15 percent. You need to consult a reproductive medicine specialist.

Hi I am about to get married this month end. We are planning to not to have children for 1 year. But we want to involve in sex. Can you please provide some suggestions. What are the side effects if we use any contraception pills. When should she take that pills. Can you please help on this.

Hello Mr. Lybrate-user, congratulations on your upcoming plans. It seems you have already searched and come to the right choice of planning your family. Oral contraceptives are very reliable form of contraception provided your wife remembers to pop one pill every night without fail. In case she forgets to take it at night, please remember to pop the forgotten pill immediately next day morning and also take the usual dose of pill on the same night. If used consistently the chances of failure of oc pills are next to none. Start your pack of tablet juliana on the first day of your period, mark the day of the week, e. G. If you start first pack on a wednesday, you will finish 21 tablets in 21 days, wait for 7 days after the pack is over and then restart next pack on the next wednesday again. You may experience some side effects like breast tenderness, mild nausea, or leg pains weakness the first cycle which will eventually go away. There might be some spotting or congestion. Please report to your doctor. Please read the leaflet what comes with the pack and if you have any of the mentioned disease conditions in the past, please report to your doctor before starting the pills.

Dos and Don'ts of Sex During Pregnancy

MDEH, BUMS
Sexologist, Delhi
Dos and Don'ts of Sex During Pregnancy

One of the most common queries faced by doctors dealing with pregnancies are risks associated with having sex during the gestation and post-partum periods. Such doubts arise from both genuine concern and also from several superstitions and myths.

As a matter of fact, having sex during pregnancy is perfectly normal and safe. However, keeping in mind the changes the woman is going through, there are a few specific do's and don'ts you need to follow while having sex during pregnancy.

Do's

  1. Be aware: Pay attention to the doctor's evaluation of the expecting mother's condition. Many pregnancy risks can be predicted at an early stage. Abstain in case of predictions pointing to a risky gestation period and/ or delivery. Get yourself tested regularly, so that there is no possibility of transmitting infections to the expecting mother.
  2. Enjoy foreplay: Pregnancy normally results in increased sensation in the erotogenic zones. Foreplay is a great way to relieve a woman's tension and she will enjoy your touch more than ever.
  3. Pay attention to your partner's needs and reactions: Women have to go through a lot during pregnancy like fatigue all the time, along with sudden nausea and extreme mood swings. So, paying more attention to your partner's needs and reactions will help make the act more enjoyable for both of you.

Don'ts

  1. Don't go for multiple partners: Multiple partners increase the risk of infections. It is not advisable to have sex with multiple partners during this time.
  2. Don't Use sex toys: Use of sex toys during pregnancy is discouraged as it increases the risk of infections.
  3. Don't Try risky positions and maneuvers: Please keep your desires for exotic positions in check. Risque behavior can lead to injuries.
  4. Don't Keep yourself ahead of her: It is perfect idiocy to keep your desires ahead of the needs and desires of the love of your life. By putting yourself ahead of her you will not only negatively affect her mental health, but her physical health as well.
  5. Do not mix drugs with intimacy: Use of intoxicants during her pregnancy to enhance your senses will put the healthy growth and delivery of the child in jeopardy. A number of birth defects in children are the result of using intoxicating substance use during pregnancy.

DO you have any thyroid, B.P. or PCOD problem (irregular menses). If your cycle is regular, then try conceiving during fertile days of your cycle i.e. about 8th day till 20th day of cycle. Still if not able to conceive within 2-3 months then, consult gyne and get all the basic tests required done.

All About Diabetic Nephropathy

MBBS, MD - General Medicine, DM - Nephrology, DNB (Nephrology)
Nephrologist, Delhi
All About Diabetic Nephropathy

Nephropathy is also known as renal disease. It is any type of damage or disease relating to the kidneys. Though not everyone with diabetes has nephropathy, however, diabetic nephropathy can cause kidney failure.

How does diabetes affect the kidney?
Kidneys are responsible for taking waste out from your blood. They have a lot of tiny blood vessels to do this. High blood sugar may kill such blood vessels. Once these blood vessels are destroyed, the kidneys may not function as well or it may even lead to kidney failure.

What increases your risk of getting diabetic nephropathy?
There are several factors which increase your risk of getting diabetic nephropathy including: \

  1. High blood pressure
  2. High cholesterol
  3. Smoking
  4. Being Native American, African American or of Hispanic origin, for whom risk factors have proved to be magnified
  5. If you have family history of diabetic nephropathy

Symptoms and diagnosis:
There are very few noticeable symptoms, which appear when you have diabetic nephropathy, except swelling in your arms and legs. The diagnosis is done by checking for a type of protein in your urine known as albumin, which is not supposed to be there. Getting the diagnosis done early is crucial.

Preventive measures:
You can prevent kidney damage by doing the following:

  1. Keeping your blood sugar levels under control - keep HbA1C < 6-7%
  2. Keeping your blood pressure under control in the range of 130/80
  3. Eating healthy food
  4. Exercising regularly
  5. Not eating too much protein
  6. Not eating too much salt
  7. Reducing smoke or excessive tobacco usage

Medicines for treatment:
If you do get diabetic nephropathy, here are some medicines, which can help cure it

  1. ACE inhibitors which are also called angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors
  2. Angiotensin II Receptor Blockers (ARBs)

Possible complications:

  1. Blood pressure may rise
  2. Triglyceride levels and cholesterol levels may rise.

Recanalisation ie reopening of tubes by surgery, unfortunately, has limited success of about 20-25% and also depends on whether open or laparoscopic surgery was done, how was tube blocked, how long ago etc. The surgery needs to be done by an expert in this surgery, else in today's era with good results, IVF tends to be a better and a more viable option

This is the 17th week from the day I had intercourse with an escort. From last 1 week I am having the continuous burning sensation on tip of my penis and sometime pain spread to testicles. 1 week before the pain was acute but now it does not hurt much. Sometime I find little pain while urinating and sometime for days I feel ok. I do not have any discharge coming. No pus, no yellow or green fluid. Sometime I feel like something is coming from my penis but nothing comes. I do not have any symptoms like rashes or blisters. This thing happened when I had a much alcoholic consumption 1 week ago and the next morning I woke up with this feeling. Now the pain spread into my back. I have a joint pain issue from last two years but for the last week it got increased little bit. I thought it was UTI but I do not have any symptoms like peeing again and again and continuous burning sensation. I got little etching but my skin seems to be clean. I also had a anxiety as soon I finished the intercourse. Because I had a doubt that she had a STD. I started taking PEP withing 60 hours. The after 1 month back I tested for PCR DNA. Which came out negative. I did a protected intercourse but I still doubt that I used it properly as it was my first time I had intercourse. Badly Irritated about the burning sensation in the tip of my penis. Pain is normal and bearable but sensation continues. I took advice of Urologist. There was no UTI infection. He said be to go for STD test again and gave some medicines for relief but conditions are same. I have checked for herpes, clamdiya and Gonnorea and they all were negative. I also did pcr dna test after 17th week and it was undetectable. Can I get a false negative result after 17th week. Urologist said to do endoscopy as all reports were negative. 120 days over, this is to be noted that after checkup and after 120 days I am getting seroconversion (ARS) symptoms. Had a small lump in my groin (i guess it is a swollen lymph node), pain in eyes ,fissure (from 2 week) neck pain, blisters on right cheek (big fluids pimples), mouth ulcer for 2 days (and den vanished) and gastro issues. Back pain (pain got less within week) and little heaviness in my back head and I have that feeling when I close my hands something under my armpit feeling. I have suffered all these issues earlier too. Now within week, they all are coming together, is a indication of something? May be my immune was strong, so I seroconverted late after 4 months? Can PCR test be false negative after 3.5 months? I am scared of being tested again as I afraid of being seroconverted. Seems like bad luck after using protection, prep medicine, getting the negative hiv in pcr test, still getting seroconverted. Seeking for emotional help Very scared! seems to be like a dark future! I know hiv patient can also live the normal life like others but having Suicidal feeling in the society where Hiv is a taboo! taking mobizox, Pan20, contiflo and Livoluk and lox jelly for piles. Back pain near rib was enormous when moving. Pain started from lower back then moved to upper left back near rib when moving now pain. acute back head pain and stiffness, jaw stiffness, neck pain, rib pain and muscle spasm. Is it cause of medicine or ARS.

The escort seems to have ruined your life. Even if you get HIV, World Health Organization with present medicines says people can have normal life span, so do not worry. Do not get depressed and anxious, if these are severe consult a psychiatrist. Be bold and test for HIV again. You might have got or acquired some other Sexually transmitted virus too, which has started affecting you. There are very many.

Alcohol is a source of empty calories. (100 Kcal/30 ml). Along with alcohol, one consumes lots of junk foods as well. Beer is consumed in high amounts. So ultimately total calorie consumption at one meal is very high. Since the body cannot utilise this, remaining is converted to fats. Men, due to their body composition, have lower tendency to store fat in arms/legs/ thighs/hips. Most of the fat is stored in their belly & blood vessels thus increasing the risk of diabetes mellitus type 2, heart disease & hypertension. Also, alcohol causes liver damage leading to cirrhosis & death. Alcohol also causes malnutrition. Smoking also increases susceptibility to heart disease, hypertension & stroke. He might be already suffering from these problems. I strongly recommend liver function test, lipid profile, blood glucose (fasting, PP), BP, ECG. Diet & lifestyle modification, regular physical exercise needs to be started immediately. He needs to stop taking beer & cigarettes. Red wine (1 -2 glass max at a time) & NRT (nicotine replacement therapy) are better options to replace beer & cigarettes.
