General Physician, Faridabad
Try if your cycle is regular then take chance on mid of cycle. Say your cycle start on 1st then try help between 12-17. During this period you have maximum chance. But it may happen at any time. It will. Welcome.

Pregnancy can be terminated with medicines (mifepristone and misoprostol) only till 7 weeks of pregnancy. As you said it is two weeks after missed period, which is almost 6 weeks. You need to hurry to get the abortion done with medicines. Gynecologist only can write a prescription for her.

Hello mam am name is vinkey.I am 32years old girl.i have been getting not regular periods .I got my after 2 month and 3month. I hope it normally and i am not full bleeding plz can help me .dr

Homeopath, Faridabad
Kindly explain me - Is it happening for the first time? Since how long you have been suffering from this problem? Is there history of the same in your past as well? Any associated symptoms or complaints? Any medical condition do you have? Have got undergone any investigations so far? Answer all these questions for proper diagnosis and proper treatment. Any nutritional deficiency can also lead to delayed menses. Also, if you are married and you do have active sexual life, get the pregnancy test done first and share the report with me. Meantime, suggesting you general tonics which will supply your body with calcium and iron - Five Phos. and Alfaalfa Tonic - take both the medicines thrice a day daily for 1 month.

Rheumatoid Arthritis

MBBS, MS - Orthopaedics

Rheumatoid Arthritis
Rheumatoid arthritis is a self limiting condition. But, by the time it leaves, the patient is crippled due to deformities & contractures & is demoralised. Medicines help in controlling the pain & inflammation. Physiotherapy maintains join mobility, prevents contractures & deformities & helps in locomotion.
Keep your moral up.
God bless you.

I have unprotected sex don't want to take pills and not now child. Kindly suggest me.

Hello, if you are not willing to take pills then just wait for your menses to arrive. If they arrive then you are not pregnant. Anyhow chances of pregnancy during each cycle is just 35-40 % so you may wait as you don't want to take any ecp as well.

My wife is 56 has no known history, but feels low and light headed most of the time. Please suggest .

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
It happens in postmenopausal women (after cessation of menses) or even around that time. Ask her to eat more soya rich food which contains natural estrogen along with calcium. Her symptoms will go in 2-3 months time. If this does not work it will need to be treated with medications like estrogen or Tibolone.

I have tested twice in 2 days interval. It was negative. Last month I got periods with the delay of 10 days. Now it is delayed by 15 days. Last 1 week I have mouth bitter and tiredness. But the pregnancy test was negative. So I am little scared and confused. Pls advice.

Irregular menses may occur due to some other causes like due to thyroid, prolactin and oestrogen-progesterone imbalance. Also due to ovarian cyst. Pcos also. Soo you need to take those test and also you need proper homeopathic treatment.

Family History of Cancer? - Opt for a Preventive Health Check

Family History of Cancer? - Opt for a Preventive Health Check

The rising incidences of cancer have made it important for us to be vigilant about our health. It has been proven medically that if cancer is detected at an early stage -stage I & II , then the chances of cure and treatment along with full recovery are very high. For early cancer detection & for people at greater risk of cancer, PHC-Preventive Health Care plays a major role. Preventive Health Check is particularly important for the people who have a family history of cancer.

Hereditary Cancers:

Almost all cancers are caused by damage or mutation in their genes, which, may be acquired from environmental exposure, dietary factors, hormones or through normal aging. In 90% of cases, these genes are not passed from parents to children. These are known as sporadic mutations and the cancers that they cause are called as sporadic cancers. But 5-10% of cancers are caused by gene mutations which are inherited from one or both parents & passed on to the children .These are hereditary or germline mutations & these cancers are known as hereditary or familial cancers.

People /children, who carry gene mutations have a higher risk of developing cancer at an earlier age or at some point in their life time.

Some of the common such cancers, which run in families, are:

  • Breast cancer
  • Ovarian cancer
  • Colo-rectal cancer (cancer of large intestine )
  • Prostate cancer
  • Lymphoma
  • Melanoma
  • Retinoblastoma

Breast, ovary & colo-rectal carcinoma have well established gene mutation studies.Mutation of BRCA 1 & BRCA2 Genes is responsible for 85% of hereditary breast cancers.

Estimated life time risk for developing breast cancer in woman with BRCA1 & BRCA2 mutation is 56-87% & risk for developing-bilateral /contralatral breast cancer is about 20-40%. These statistics make a preventive health check for women with breast cancer history in their family a necessity. Mutation in these genes confers about 20-40% increased life time risk for developing ovarian cancer. Hence the presence of gene mutation for breast cancer can trigger ovarian cancer.

However as stated above, other environmental and lifestyle factors can also cause breast cancer other than genetic BRCA1 & BRCA 2 gene mutations.

  • Increasing age
  • Early menarche
  • Late menopause
  • Nulliparity
  • First birth after the age of 30
  • Atypical lobular hyperplasia or Atypical ductal hyperplasia
  • Prior breast biopsies
  • Long term postmenopausal estiogen replacement
  • Early exposure to ionizing radiation

Other Familial Cancers:

Familial cancer syndromes associated with colo-rectal cancers are familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP).It is an autosomal dominant inherited syndrome with more than 90% penetrance, manifested by hundreds of polyps developed by late adolescence .The risk of developing invasive cancer is almost 100% .So such patients should start getting colonoscopy at an earlier age- say by 20yr of age & should undergo Total Collectomy on development of significant polyps .

Other familial cancer syndromes are hereditary non -Polyposis Colo Rectal Cancer (HNPCC), Gardner's Syndrome, Turcot's Syndrome, Peutz-Jeghers Syndrome, Juvenile Polyposis.

Cancer Assessment & Conclusion:

For breast cancer risk assessment, we have the GAIL model & IBIS model, which take into consideration ,all the risk factors, apart from BRCA1 & BRCA 2 gene mutation. These models calculate the over all life time risk of development of breast cancer for any lady. For this, you have to consult a specialist experienced in area of hereditary cancers, cancer risk assessment, genetic counseling & testing.

To conclude, all people with cancers in their family should undergo genetic testing & counseling, to detect high risk individuals should take adequate measures & treatment.

Cosult agynaecolosigt. Do a pelvic scan. Confirm the duration of pregnancy and r/o extrauterine pregnancy. Medicines should be taken only after gynae consultation as, it can cause severe bleeding, infection and infertility later on.

I am a 19 year old female. My sexual partner was manually stimulating my clitoris and vagina, a little too rough and long. After that I experienced minor bleeding, pain, soreness and extreme swelling of the left labia minora. Is this normal? I have been applying a cold compress on the swollen area. What should I do?

MD-Ayurveda, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Sexologist, Haldwani
Hello- You partner might be unaware of the fact that too much physical stimulation in the genital area without active involvement of the host can result in small muscle fatigue and abrasion. Pain and swelling are definitely due to the same. Apply Cows ghee and gently massage the area, consume few drops of almond oil with milk at bed time. Your condition will be normal within three days time.
