Respected doctor, I am obese, and 22 year old female, I had my last menstrual period from 11 march-14 march. Since then. I missed my period, on 10 today doc prescribed me to a medicine which reduce stress, but I can't follow it. On 29 April I go to another hospital and they prescribed me methridoxyprogestrone acetate and my upt is negative .it take the medicine for 4-5 days. On 10 may I got my period up to 5 days. I can't go for blood test and ultrasound due to my busy schedule. I seen hair growth too on my face. Now, 13 June and I didn't get my period. I adopt healthy lifestyle, I reduced 2 kg of weight, I drink double tanned milk once morning and then in night. Today I go to same doctor who prescribe me with stress reduction medicine, she prescribed me with primolut n.and not advising for blood test and ultrasound now. Please help doc. What can I do?

You are 22, have a height of 5.4 feet and weight is 83.....this weight is in too much excess for your height. Unless you reduce weight, your menses wont regularise. so make it a point to come down to the best normal weight for your height of about 55 kg. Taking ultrasound and doing blood tests like thyroid tests hormone tests can be done to rule out some of the problems like thyroid dysfunction and ovarian uterine problems. Once you get menses, do visit the gynecologist to take medicines for making menses regular. BUT if you are OKay with irregular, or delayed menses, there is NOTHING to worry and you may not take medicines also. Meanwhile concentrate on your weight loss and get a diet charted by a dietitian and go to GYM to do cardiovascular exercises.

It is difficult to comment without knowing what medications you are taking. However, If you have been advised tablets to get your periods, they will most probably be hormonal medications supposed to be taken for about 5 days. You will get your periods after you have completed the full 5 days' course, not while you are taking them.

Blood In Urine - 10 Top Reasons Behind It!

Blood In Urine - 10 Top Reasons Behind It!

Blood in urine, medically known as Hematuria is not usually a cause of concern, but it can translate into an adverse condition if left unevaluated. The kidneys and other structures in the urinary tracts such as urethra (tube connecting the bladder to the outer part of the body); bladder (that stores the urine) and ureters (tube joining the bladder to the kidney) are the sources of blood flow to the urine. Hematuria can be accompanied by symptoms such as discharge of tea-colored, brownish-red or pink colored urine due to the presence of red blood cells, traces of which can only be detected under the microscope.

Underlying causes behind this disorder might be

  1. Urinary tract infections is where the bacteria enter the body through the urethra and begin to proliferate in the bladder.
  2. Kidney infections (pyelonephritis) is when bacteria infiltrate into the kidneys from the bloodstream or travel up from the uterus to the kidneys.
  3. A kidney or a bladder stone is marked by the minerals in the concentrated urine precipitating out and molding into crystals that deposit on the bladder or kidney walls.
  4. Enlarged prostate is a condition in which the prostate gland, that is situated just below the bladder surrounding the upper part of the urethra, starts growing as males head towards their middle age.
  5. Kidney disease such as glomerulonephritis causes swelling of the kidneys, thus disrupting the filtering system.
  6. Bladder, kidney and prostate cancer are also possible causes.
  7. Hereditary disorders such as sickle cell anemia (a hereditary disease of the red blood cells in the hemoglobin) can also pose as a cause behind this disorder.
  8. Kidney injury as a result of heavy blows, accidents or injuries sustained while playing a spot can also contribute to this condition.
  9. Medications such as penicillin or the anti-cancer drug ‘cyclophosphamide’
  10. Strenuous physical exercises like intense workout or running may also result in Hematuria.

Treatments
There is no fixed cure for Hematuria; instead the doctor would work on treating the repressed conditions behind the symptoms, such as prescribing antibiotics to heal the urinary tract infection or a medicine to shrink and normalize the enlarged prostate or administer a shock wave therapy to destroy the kidney or bladder stones.

If the baby is not able to suck the breast milk from either of the breast - milk has to be expressed from hand and then administer to the baby. A general massage with olive oil needs to be done.

Food Items To Be Avoided By Patients With Low Platelet Count

MD - Pathology
Pathologist, Noida
Food Items To Be Avoided By Patients With Low Platelet Count

Now this is a very interesting topic. We have always focused on food items which help raise platelet counts. So, this topic is equally important, if not more. This blog lists various food items that are best avoided in patients having low platelet counts. Scientific evidence is lacking, in majority, on why these food items are best avoided. Most of these are gradual observations that people have noticed over the years.

So the list goes as :

  1. Ginkgo Biloba – used as a memory enhancer
  2. Ginseng – used as energy boosting supplement
  3. Raw garlic
  4. Pomegranates
  5. Omega three intake foods – fish etc
  6. Red wine
  7. Smoking
  8. Pineapple – which are considered as antiplatelet agents
  9. Fruits and vegetables that contain “salicyclates” - such as cucumbers, mushroom, raddish, berries, cherries. Salicyclates act as blood thinners and prevent clotting
  10. Coffee – it is not the caffeine but phenolic acids present in coffee that are the culprit.
  11. Alcohol
  12. Foods containing quinine – ex. Tonic water – a bitter liquid which is used as a mix for alcoholic drinks
  13. Foods containing Aspartame: Aspartame is a low calorie sweetener. It is used in diet sodas, energy drinks, protein shakes, flavoured milk and juices, breath mints and jellies. In fact ice-creams, and chewing gums and ketchups may also contain aspartame.
  14. The above food items are to be best avoided if you suffer from dengue.

    But if your low platelet counts are diagnosed due to autoimmune diseases ( such as celiac disease), then additionally you need to take an anti-inflammatory diet along with avoidance of gluten containing foods. Now gluten containing foods are wheat, barley, rye and other grains. So these items should not be consumed if you suffer from celiac disease – a type of autoimmune disease. Anti-inflammatory diet means including fresh food in diet, minimize processed food and fast food, eat more fruits and vegetables, restrict caloric intake to 2000 to 3000 calories per day in adults. Of this caloric intake, 40-50% should come from carbohydrates, 30 % from fats, and 20 -30% from proteins.

Sir, I feel sudden breast discharge and after bilateral usg it is diagnosed that I have fibroadenosis in my breast which is almost 2 years, Initially doctor prescribed me Cap primosa 1000 O. D for 3 months, Evion 400mg for 3 weeks and Tab pyricontin for 1 month. Now, breast discharge is very rare and occasionally feel little pain mainly before period. Now, I am 43 years and also the patient of mental depression, GERD and P. C. O. S.O. D. What treatment/ medicine I have to take now, Sir.

MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Pune
Fibroadenosis is known to have a periodic fluctuation in size of the lumpish feel. At your age it is important to rule out other causes of nipple discharge. If you have family history of breast cancer in first degree relatives, please see a surgeon at the earliest.

Sir when we do sex between the menstrual period there is a chance of pregnancy in that case? Should do in that period?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Menstrual cycle begins on the first day of your period and continues up to the first day of your next period. Most fertile period is at the time of ovulation, (when an egg is released from your ovaries) which usually occurs 12-14 days before next period starts. So it is impossible to get pregnant when you have sex during menses.
