If the sex was within 5 days from now then you should give her i-pill asap. If she has already crossed 5 days then you need to wait for another 15 days to get menses and urine test done for pregnancy. Hormonal changes also can delay menses and chance of pregnancy just before the menses day is very less.

Palliative Care for Cancer Patients

MD - Ayurveda

With terminal illnesses like cancer, the disease is not the only thing that requires treatment. In addition to controlling the severity and spread of the main disease, the effect it has on the other body systems including emotional, social, psychological problems and also physical issues like pain and inflammation. Though the disease has reached an advanced stage and cannot be cured, the patient can be made to be pain-free and at peace to the extent possible.

The goal of palliative care is not to cure - in fact, palliative care is in place for diseases like cancer from the time it is diagnosed and treatment is begun but becomes the major component of treatment once the cancer is identified to be in terminal stages. Therapeutic care aimed at curing the cancer is gradually reduced and palliative care assumes a bigger role. This is also called as symptomatic care, supportive care, or comfort care.

Aspects of palliative care: once the disease is identified to be in terminal stages, then the following become considerations-
1. Stay at home or hospital
2. Withdraw chemotherapy and radiation?
3. Withdraw feeding tube
4. Spiritual discussions
5. Reduce anxiety
6. Good quality time with the family
7. Reduce pain and suffering
As is evident, there is a huge component of social/emotional/spiritual management in addition to reducing pain and suffering.

Physical: pain, fatigue, shortness of breath, sleeplessness, loss of appetite are some symptoms that need to be managed. In addition to pain killers, small exercises can be included to make them feel better, even if it is just getting a breath of fresh air.

Social: depression, anxiety, uncertainty, fear are all looming large and they are not sure how to manage these feelings. Talking to a counselor or some close family member or friend can be a big relief - the burden is off their chest.

Legal: there could be issues related to property, insurance, property that also need to be discussed. External help can be sought if required to provide financial counselling and legal advice.

Spiritual: looking into the spiritual needs and understanding the deeper meaning of life, restoring faith are some things that also can help them feel better" why did this happen to me" is a question most people keep asking and while there is no answer, some solace can be provided through talks.

It is to be noted that palliative care is not just for the patient. The caretakers (family and close friends) are equally in need of some support. So, once the patient is identified to be in terminal stages, all effort is made so the final leg of the journey is peaceful and as painless as possible.

Menses more than a drop is considered as a normal menses. If u r married then u should get pregnancy test done asap. Or if u r not married then there is no need to worry and no treatment is required as it can happen with the stress or hormonal changes which will get auto-corrected next month. If this problem persists in subsequent cycles the u r likely to be benefited by ultrasound and TSH test

Hi, do not be worried on menstrual delay it is because of your sedentary life management and lack of care to your personal hygiene. So take green veg with iron and minerals. Take some gynecological natural drug to be fully regularize the forth coming cycle. Ok.

Although failure chances are less but accidents do happen and moreover taking 2 ipills in a span of 3-4 dayss is dangerous and I think this is the reaon for delayed periods -------------you can just check for home urine pregnancy test and if it is negative, then wait for 3-5 days, you will get back the periods but do not try to have unprotected sex during this time------------

Hello, Are you asking about somebody else? What her age? Is she married, if yes, since when? How is her sexual life? What kind of menstrual irregularity is there? Has she undergone any investigations? Share all the reports with me. Without knowing all these can't give you any medication. Ask her to take more of green vegetables, nuts, salads, seasonal fruits, yellow coloured veggies, milk & milk products, plenty of water and enough of sleep & rest. And homoeopathic medication – Schwabe's Five Phos. And Alfaalfa Tonic – both thrice daily for 1 month. There after revert me back..take care.
