PCOS

Gynaecologist, Noida
PCOS

PCOS Treatment?

Treatment for PCOS is not curative. Treatment focuses on controlling symptoms and managing the condition to prevent complications. The treatment will vary from woman to woman, depending on specific symptoms.

A healthy diet and regular exercise are recommended for all women with PCOS, particularly those who are overweight. This can help to regulate your menstrual cycle and lower your blood glucose levels.

Women who don't want to become pregnant may be prescribed birth control pills. These can help treat acne, regulate the menstrual cycle, and lower levels of male hormones, such as testosterone, in the body. If a woman with PCOS is suffering from infertility, fertility drugs may be administered for helping her to ovulate.

Anti-androgens are drugs that reduce male hormone levels. These can help stop excess hair growth and reduce acne. Diabetes medications may also be prescribed to lower blood glucose and testosterone levels.

Surgery may be recommended for some women with PCOS. Ovarian drilling is a procedure in which the doctor punctures patient's ovary with a small needle that carries an electric current, in order to destroy part of the ovary. This is a short-term solution that can promote ovulation and reduce male hormone levels.

Potential Complications of PCOS?

Women with PCOS have a higher risk of developing:

  • hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • high cholesterol
  • anxiety and depression
  • sleep apnea (when a person stops breathing periodically during sleep)
  • endometrial cancer (cancer caused by thickening of the lining of the uterus)
  • heart attack
  • diabetes
  • breast cancer

If you become pregnant, your doctor may refer you to a doctor who specializes in high-risk pregnancies. Women with PCOS have a higher rate of miscarriage, gestational diabetes, and premature delivery. They may also require extra monitoring during pregnancy.

The earlier the PCOS is diagnosed and treated, the lower is the risk of developing these complications. Avoidance of tobacco products and participating in regular exercise can also reduce the risk of some of these co-morbidities. The patients must talk to the Gynae about what PCOS means for your overall health and how you can prevent serious complications.

Starving vs Eating healthy

B.Sc. Food & Nutrition, M.Sc. Food & Nutrition

Starving vs Eating healthy

You study one night before the exam but you manage an all nighter, thus you manage to pass. You study for a week for your sat exams but you manage a score little over 1800. You sit down for a few hours and you manage to finish the work your boss asked for a week ago. You push yourself and get the desired results. These results keep you happy, get the work done (in a long term successful manner) and turn out to be fast as well as effective! but, can you say the same in relation to starving to lose weight? yes it's fast, but is it effective? yes you might look thin, but internally are you happy when you're hungry? yes it's got the job done but will it be a long term success? the answer is no. Starving yourself to lose weight isn't the solution. Why, you ask? well here's a piece of my mind.

Metabolism vs metabolism:
Well the first ones an example of how slow your metabolic rate will be when you starve! since glucose and insulin play a major role in your metabolism levels, insufficient consumption of food will lead to a fall in their levels, eventually causing a decline in your metabolic rate. Then comes the second kind, that fast paced metabolism that's because regular meals keep your digestive system running which in turn paces up your metabolic rates.

No water vs no water weight:
When you decide to starve yourself, you say no to almost any item going into your mouth. You cant live on a peanut for lunch and one fruit for dinner! instead you need to trim the excess weight by getting rid of the water weight by cutting your carbs! for every gram of carb that you consume, your body retains 4 grams of water. No carbs, no retention. No water weight? that's right! say no to carbs, yes to healthy food and bye bye to water weight.

Malnutrition vs nutrition:
After a few months of starvation, there is a major cut in your staple food which leads to insufficient nutrients, vitamin and minerals. Without all the essentials for a balanced diet your body cannot function properly which could lead to serious illnesses and problems. On the other hand, if you eat right your body improves its immunity and keeps even the smallest cough away.

To sleep or not to sleep:
Those who starve themselves tend to get hungry (well, duh) during the odd hours of the night. This either keeps them up late at night or keeps waking them up every few hours. Or, even worse you binge eat at like 3 am. Carbs, fat and dessert! whereas those who eat a well balanced healthy meal end up getting a good night's rest since their body isn't short of food aka energy deprived!

Lethargic lump vs energizer bunny:
After you skip some meals, your body is really low on energy so it uses stored fat as a replacement ie muscles. You'll notice your muscles slowly start to fade away to compensate for the lack of energy in your body. Eventually you won't have the energy to do anything, not even eat (not as good as it sounds!). Actually no energy and no muscle might just make you fat and lazy. If you decide to get off your lazy lump and cook breakfast, you will actually help kick start your body into fat burning mode! also you'll have the energy to exercise which definitely provides better results than starving.

You should not be using antipreg kits in such short durations as it weekens your uterus and fertility in the long run, get an IUCD inserted to avoid pregnancy.

My upper body is heavier than lower. Specially breast size. And pain in my body. So how can I reduce my breast size.

My upper body is heavier than lower. Specially breast size. And pain in my body. So how can I reduce my breast size.
Breast reduction and lifting surgery will reduce the size and tighten them. This is one of the most frequently performed surgeries and we are the pioneers in central India since last 30 years. To the best of our knowledge no medicines or creams work to increase or reduce the breast size. It is a day care procedure and you are discharge in a very short time from the hospital and it brings about an instant change in breast size and self esteem. No one wants surgery unless it is necessary. There is no medication to give the results. No one wants surgery unless it is necessary. There is no medication to give the results. No creams or pills actually work except psychologically. Surgery is the only answer. The surgery is almost painless.TO the best of our knowledge no medicines or creams work to increase./reduce or tighten the breast You would need adjustment either on one side alone or in both breasts depending on what you want To the best of our knowledge no medicines or creams work to increase the breast size. The larger side can be reduced and the smaller side can be enlarged and both would become firm.

As your last mense were on 18 feb, and if you r pregnant now, you can confirm that only after 25th march. As you r having spotting since 5 days, which goes more in favour of hormonal imbalance in this month than pregnancy. There is no need to take any medicines as of now for the spotting.

There is no exact period considered completely safe. Hoever considering the first day of menstrual flow as the 1st day of mc, day 1 to day 7 and day 21 to day 28 can be considered relative safe, in which the female partner may not get pregnant. For exact dates you and your partner may consult a gynecologist.

Instead of blaming each other both of them should get themselves investigated for infertility cause can be with either of them and there are treatments available for every problem this should not become an issue to fight but both of them should together work on finding a solution tension in relationship itself is a big reason for not conceiving.

Hye. Thankyou for your query. Chances are that your excess fat can cause hypothyroidism and that could further cause weight gain. You can get your hormonal tests done. There’s no overnight fix when it comes to healthy weight loss, but you can adjust your lifestyle to promote quick, natural weight loss for the benefit of your health and your appearance. Successful, long-term weight management needs to focus on more than the food you eat and the pounds you lose. It needs to focus on your overall health. Reshape your body and your lifestyle by adopting healthy habits and breaking unhealthy ones. Replace all processed foods in your diet with vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low-fat dairy, lean meats, eggs, legumes, nuts, seeds and seafood. Focus on the variety of whole, unprocessed foods you can eat instead of dwelling on the junk food you eliminated from your diet. Eat smaller portions at every meal and avoid going back for seconds. Take a smaller scoop of rice, half of a piece of chicken instead of a whole piece and one less egg in your morning omelet, for example. Make time for breakfast every morning. Eating breakfast helps prevent overeating and is a habit of people who successfully lose weight. Pack to-go meals instead of eating convenience foods when you’re not home. Store foods like chopped fruits and vegetables or cooked grains, legumes, eggs and meats in your refrigerator so you always have something to grab when you’re in a rush. Buy fresh vegetables and fruits from the grocery store if you forget to bring healthful food from home. When you can’t avoid dining at a restaurant, opt for a salad as a starter, and always ask for the dressing on the side. Clear soups, lean meats, seafood and grain-based dishes like roti, whole grain bread are other good choices. Exercise for 30 to 60 minutes at least three times per week to build muscle and burn more calories. Pilates, strength training, aerobics, swimming, dancing and yoga or a sport like football are ideal choices. If you’re new to exercising, start with brisk walking and jogging. Adopt physically demanding hobbies like bicycling, hiking, jogging, power walking to promote faster weight loss. If you don’t have time for new hobbies, increase your physical activity with things like walking the dog, playing with the kids or jogging instead of driving to a nearby store or taking the stairs instead of the elevator.

Avoid these foods during pregnancy

MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Agra
Avoid these foods during pregnancy
Foods which include soft cheese like camembert or brie, raw seafood and sushi, pate, ready made salads, and cold delicatessen meat should not be consumed during pregnancy as they can cause listeria, a food-borne illness which is very risky for both the mother and the child. Raw meat is also very dangerous to consume.

If the constipation from the third month of your pregnancy still continues, try consuming high amount of fibre, water, fresh juices especially orange and prune juice, as well as cereals with grains and wholemeal. All of these foods help in relieving constipation.
