It depends on type of ovarian cyst. Looking at your age, it must be functional cyst only and may require hormonal treatment. Still need to know more things about the cyst, your menstrual problem and family history. So better you consult your gynaecologist or me privately.

We have to treat the cause and if there is no urine output with puffiness of face and odema on legs than we might have to think of dialysis and if there is noticeable urine output than we might have to repeat the test after every three days.

What is the solutions of Kidney stones?

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda,
What is the solutions of Kidney stones?
Diuretics in ayurvedic are best bet. It doesn't cause loss of potassium unlike allopathic diuretics. Then herbs and foods which help dissolve and disintegrate stones are further helpful. Duration of treatment is not long but depends on consistency and location of stone. Please converse privately for specific guidelines.

Drink plenty of fluids and water. Concentrated urine smells strongly and dilution by water should do away with this. If you do not have any urinary complaints and fever there is less possibility of anything wrong with you and it may be a personal perception of your family member. If at all you wish to do, test your urine for evidence of pus cells and routine examination.

I am 40 years old. I am suffering from urine retention during nights. What should I do? Even it is little painful.

Diploma in Anesthesia, MBBS
General Physician, Hyderabad
I am 40 years old. I am suffering from urine retention during nights. What should I do? Even it is little painful.
By urine retention you mean you are not able to pass urine? If its so take plenty of water during the day time atleast 2.5 to 3 litres in a day. Take timely meals and avoid excessive spices etc. Any operations for delivary, which can change the tone of the muscles in the area. If the pain is present since the time of urine retention, it could be due to urinary infection. Any associated fever or passing redcoloured urine then you need a course of medicines after getting the urine cultre test done. If need more guidance comeback with details for further guidance. Good luck.

If you have urinary infection, have you done your urine culture/sensitivity? You should do that. Probably the antibiotics you are using are not effective against the infecting organism.

Hello Lybrate user, Our kidneys are one of the most essential organs of our body, which help us to filter out the waste in our bloodstream. The byproduct of this waste is our urine. Stones develop due to mineral deposits in our urine that stick together in the kidneys. So, these stones develop due to a lack of water that dilutes the accumulated minerals on the lining of our kidneys. Preventive measures - - Increase your water intake. Drink water at least 2 - 3 liters/day i.e. Stay properly hydrated. - Diet:- eat a healthy diet which is rich in fruits and vegetables, whole grains and low fat dairy products. - Do not workout excessively to prevent excessive sweating and dehydration. - Avoid processed foods, because processed foods have high salt content, cut down on the amount of soda and energy drinks. - Reduce animal protein, such as meat, eggs and fish. - Avoid high oxalate foods including chocolate, wheat, peppers. - Eat watermelon, which contains Potassium and large amount of water. Potassium helps to keep kidneys function healthy. - Drink lemon juice, it is full of natural citrate, which inhibits kidney stone formation. There are many homoeopathic remedies will help you to get rid of kidney stones. You can consult me by clicking on consult option for homoeopathic treatment and for permanent cure.

what are the size of the stones? stones treatment depends on the types and size of stone, most kidney stones won't require invasive procedures. You may be able to pass a small stone by: drinking water. Drinking as much as 2 to 3 quarts (1.9 to 2.8 liters) a day may help flush out your urinary system. Unless doctor tells you otherwise, drink enough fluid mostly water to produce clear or nearly clear urine. Passing a small stone can cause some discomfort. To relieve mild pain, according to your medical history I may prescribe pain relievers. I am a doctor and renal (kidney) registered dietitian who will also prescribe a customized diet plan and medications to help pass your kidney stone quickly and with less pain. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

If you are having piles and bleeding, it may be due to constipation or damage of anal mucosa due to hard stools. I would suggest you sitz bath: take hot water in a tub and add betadine solution, cover your anal area and sit for 15-20 minutes twice a day if possible thrice a day. It will reduce bleeding and helpful for healing. Wash the anal area with mild soap, pat dry and apply the lignocaine jelly after bowel movement and at bedtime. Liquid cremaffin plus 2 tsp twice a day. You should prevent constipation by eating healthy food, which contains fiber. Avoid spicy, fatty, heavy meals and meat. Avoid smoking if you smoke. If your symptoms persist, I would suggest you visit a general surgeon for clinical and physical examination to know about degree of hemorrhoids. Treatment (medical or surgical) can be decided by surgeon. Hope I have answered your query. If you have any queries, I will be happy to help you. Thank you.

Your problem is termed as blue balls. It is the slang term for a congested prostate or vasocongestion, the condition of temporary fluid congestion in the testicles and prostate region caused by prolonged sexual arousal in the human male. It is often accompanied by a cramp-like ache of prostatic congestion and pain/tenderness or edema of the testes. -----------the cause is the prolonged sexual stimulation of the erect penis (intentional or unintentional), that does not result in orgasm and ejaculation. In your case it is a erotic sexual denial. -----------i think obeid you have deprived from yourself masturbation habit purposely for the last one month. Or you must have refrained from ejaculation for a longer period to increase your duration of sex with your partner. If this is the case, massaging the testicles or using a vibrator on the testicles during the prolonged sexual activity may prevent the blood from pooling and actually prevent or decrease the severity of blue balls.------------------
