Me and my girlfriend have sex without condoms and have it in a very calm way. We both do not have any std's so is there any risk of having one? If we have sex without protection?

Pediatrician,
Do You Know These Facts About Speech Delay?

If you have concerns about your child’s ability to communicate, have his or her hearing tested even if this was done in the newborn period because the most obvious sign of possible hearing loss is a delay in speech.

Care before Pregnancy (Pre-conceptional Care)

Care before Pregnancy (Pre-conceptional Care)
Most of us have an idea that the couple should go to gynecologist only after they fall pregnant or when there is difficulty in conceiving. But we all know that prevention is better than cure. Then why should not we take precaution to avoid complications in pregnancy so that we can have healthy mother and healthy baby.

Some of the diseases can manifest during pregnancy, like some diseases of heart, blood pressure, blood sugar etc. But if the couple comes to doctor when they are planning pregnancy, then we can diagnose it and start treatment so that pregnancy can be safe to both the mother and the baby.

On the other hand, some pre-existing disease may turn serious during pregnancy and endanger life of both mother and baby. This includes thyroid disease, hypertension, epilepsy, renal disease, cardiac disease etc. If taken care of properly, the disease can be controlled before pregnancy so that the risk can be reduced. Again all the drugs are not safe for the baby. So, if treated before pregnancy, the mother can be put on safer but effective drugs before pregnancy.

Some diseases may run in family and often goes undetected and can affect the baby. Thlassaemia, hemophilia etc are the best examples. So, if the couple comes to us before pregnancy, we can screen them to diagnose whether they are bearer of the disease or not and then we can take care to prevent birth of defective baby.

Some diseases indicate that there may be problems in having pregnancy, like problems in periods or abdominal pain in female, sexual problems in male and female etc. If treated properly, it will avoid unnecessary time wastage for trying for pregnancy.

The woman can be instructed how to remain healthy to have normal baby, before pregnancy. She can be advised some drugs (like folic acid), can be asked to avoid harmful drugs and substances (like drugs, excessive vitamin a, excessive vitamin d, excessive caffeine, smoking etc). Even the husband can be asked how to improve his fertility (by avoiding heat exposure to his scrotum).

Again some infections can be dangerous for the baby. So, before pregnancy we can treat the women for the infections and in some cases we can vaccinate her to prevent infection.

"a stitch in time saves nine. So, why don't you consult your gynecologist when you are planning for pregnancy? have smooth journey throughout pregnancy and enjoy parenthood.

Chances of pregnancy is very less since you had sex during the safe period and she has taken unwanted 72. Period could be delayed because of the pill. However do a pregnancy test and consult doctor for advice.

Hi i Am 30 years unmarried women. I took primolut 5mg twice for five days. Due to absence of periods. Today is 4th day by finishing that. But still no periods. Why it is like that. When I can expect my periods?

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Zirakpur
This is hormonal medicine but ayurveda people would not recommend it. There are no specific withdrawal symptoms if you stop primolut and but there is the possibility that the original complaints might re-occur. Rather vwe require you to take rajpravartini vati, kasisadi etc to correct your problem. If you like to get advise or package from us please write medical history, test reports if any etc.

Self Monitoring of Blood Glucose - SMBG Chart

MBBS, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Mumbai
Self Monitoring of Blood Glucose - SMBG Chart

Self-monitoring of blood glucose (smbg) is very crucial for those diabetics who are on insulin or on certain oral anti-diabetic drugs which can cause hypoglycemia. To achieve best glycemic control it is essential to know how your daily blood glucose levels are fluctuating in an entire day.

It is easier for a diabetes specialist to adjust drugs or to adjust insulin dose if good smbg record is maintained by the patient.

Normally we check fasting and 2 hr post prandial blood sugar levels in the lab for routine follow-up. There is a bright chance of sugar excursions in the other post meal readings which get unnoticed. Even in case of hba1c or glycated hemoglobin test we get an average result of blood glucose of last 3 months.

In practice, I have seen several patients who had to fast and post prandial blood glucose lab tests in the normal range but hba1c levels below 7 is not achieved because they might have high blood sugars in other post meals which have got unnoticed.

To achieve the best blood glycemic control it is important to control blood sugar levels within normal limits during the entire day and not just fasting or post breakfast levels.

Interpretation of smbg chart:

In the above image of smbg chart, I have mentioned 7 point charting system where you can fill your blood glucometer readings which you take on several spots in an entire day.

Seven points includes:


    Fasting or before breakfast reading
    2 hrs after breakfast
    Before lunch
    2 hrs after lunch
    Before dinner
    2 hrs after dinner or bedtime
    At mid night 3.00 am


This seven point smbg charting approximately covers entire day glucose fluctuations to some extent (of course not as accurate as cgms).

I have also mentioned a comment column in the above smbg chart where you can note down change in food or change in insulin dose or any other changes that you have made which probably caused unusual readings like for example if hypoglycemia occurs at before lunch reading and you have skipped breakfast or had very little snack at breakfast you can mention that.

You do not need to check daily all the 7 points, you can check any one or 2 points randomly depending upon your sugar control.

More uncontrolled blood sugars require more frequent smbg glucometer monitoring.

Monitoring of blood glucose at home in case of diabetic pregnancy or gestational diabetes is also important where frequent monitoring and smbg charting of glucometer readings helps a lot to the patient.

I hope this article will help you to control your blood sugar levels more efficiently.

If you find that some of the post-meal or pre-meal readings are high or low, please consult your diabetologist with smbg chart to adjust your medication or insulin dosage.

If you like my article please share it with your friends and family.

Awareness is prevention!

Mix 5 drops of white chestnut + 5 drops of aspen + 5 drops of cherry plum + 5 drops of mimulus. Add these to 100 ml water and drink every 12 hours. Take this for 3 months. If any problems consult me online. These are symptoms of schizophrenia.

It depends on the amount of water leakage, condition of the mother and the baby. usually we give antibiotics and some drugs to continue pregnancy and then plan for delivery but if condition of the mother or baby is serious, we may have to deliver her urgently.

ARE YOU WALKING AROUND WITH FRAGILE BONES?

MBBS, MS, DNB, FNB (SPINE SURGERY)
Orthopedist, Chennai
ARE YOU WALKING AROUND WITH FRAGILE BONES?
ARE YOU AT HIGH RISK OF DEVELOPING A FRACTURE IN YOUR SPINE OR HIP? Read on to know more about OSTEOPOROSIS.
There is another silently progressing, common disease other than diabetes and hypertension that can cause potentially serious risk to your health in old age. Osteoporosis meaning “porous bones” indicates a condition where your bones become more porous, thinner and weaker due to accelerated loss of bone or reduced bone formation or both. It is most evident in the vertebrae of spine, hip bones and in the wrists.
Thin and porous vertebrae fracture easily. They crumble on their own or due to minor stresses during daily activities like coughing, sneezing, bending forwards. These fractures can be painless and go unnoticed in multiple levels till the spine develops a forward bend and a noticeable loss of height. Or it can cause significant pain and disability, limitation in daily activities and increased dependence on others. A simple slip and fall at home can cause a fracture in the hip bones that can make the patient completely bed ridden. These situations commonly cause depression and general deterioration of health and leads to other risky complications in old age.
Though it is most common women after menopause, it also happens in men above age of 65 years and in those with certain risk factors like liver or kidney disease, thyroid or parathyroid disorders, and certain tumours. Smoking has been proven to cause osteoporosis. Long term steroid intake given for various conditions and medications given for seizure disorders also can cause osteoporosis.
Osteoporosis can be detected easily by a screening test called the DEXA scan. Any one above the age of 50 years should consult an orthopaedic surgeon to know if they are at risk of osteoporosis and whether he/she needs a DEXA scan. If the DEXA scan reveals that you have osteoporosis, you must be evaluated by an orthopaedic surgeon and an endocrinologist to look for other treatable conditions that can cause osteoporosis. There are medications that are prescribed to strengthen the bones and reduce the risk of fractures in future. Diet rich in calcium and vitamin D and supplementary calcium and vitamin D medications are also an essential part of treatment.
Although the vertebral osteoporotic fractures commonly heal in a few weeks with bed rest and medications, some of them may not heal in time or cause severe pain and disability. These patients might need surgical intervention. Vertebroplasty is a procedure that involves injection of bone cement into the broken vertebra and can give immediate pain relief. Kyphoplasty is a similar procedure that can restore the height of the fractured vertebral body and reduce the forward stoop in the spine. Open surgery might be required sometimes if the collapsed vertebra causes a compression of the spinal cord or nerves in the spine. Osteoporotic hip fractures and wrist fractures often need surgical treatment for fixation.
Prevention of osteoporosis should begin in childhood. Growing bones accumulate calcium and the calcium in bones reaches a peak at around age of 26 to 30 years. After that age, there is a slow decline in the bone calcium, which accelerates in old age especially in women after menopause. So those who reach a lower peak of calcium in bones by the age of 30 are at a higher risk of developing osteoporosis in old age. This means that adequate intake of dietary calcium, vitamin D and adequate exercise from young age is very important to prevent osteoporosis.
Prevention of falls and resultant fractures in those who are osteoporotic is an important aspect of treatment. This needs modification of their living spaces to remove the risks of a slip and fall. Routine exercises and an active lifestyle load the bones and make them stronger and it is a must for all those with osteoporosis and those at risk of developing osteoporosis.
