Leucorrhoea recipes main include a variety of healthy fruits and vegetables, especially bananas, cranberries, oranges, lemons, black plums, okra, leafy greens, onions, brown rice, yogurt, as well as healthy herbs and spices such as ginger, garlic, fenugreek and coriander. There are also many food items which aggravate leucorrhea and therefore they should be strictly avoided while women are going through this problem. Some of the foods that should be eliminated from healthy leucorrhoea recipes include eggs, meat, bread, mushrooms, sweets and any other food items that have been fermented.

I am a 23, female. My boyfriend ejaculated near the vulva, there was no penetration of the penis but we were rubbing the genitals over each other naked. Is there any chance of pregnancy? I have already taken a emergency contraception though. My periods are still due.

Chances of pregnancy after unprotected contact are high. In your case chances are less. Get urine pregnancy test if you miss periods. Use condom now onwards.

Dear lybrate-user The spotting you experienced might be an implantation bleeding (some bleeding is seen when the baby is getting attached completely to your uterus). The medicine helps in controlling the bleeding. It is safe in pregnancy.

Hi lybrate-user. Ectopic pregnancy needs abortion whether it is medical or surgical or spontaneous. So please go to obs gynae practioner as soon as possible. There are various complications which might arise if ectopic is not taken care of promptly. It might rupture bleed etc or get infected and people then land up in emergency. So it is advisable to get treated for the same without any undue delay to avoid further complications.

Can Breast Cancer Be Predicted Before It Develops?

Can Breast Cancer Be Predicted Before It Develops?

Medical science constantly challenges the boundaries by finding not only the cures to the most dangerous diseases, but finds a way to prevent them even before they occur. With years of research, practice and data available for analysis, scientists are using advanced technology in combination with years of research to create a predicting mechanism for often fatal diseases like cancer.

Breast cancer screening has always been done with mammography. The fact is that this method is only 75% accurate, laden with false positives and misses a whole set of women totally- and that too when cancer has already developed. Part of the problem comes from the dense breast tissue which one in three women have. This tissue masks the lumps, which makes it difficult for mammograms to accurately screen cancer.

Some breakthrough scientific methods are changing this by drawing on years of research to predict this deadly disease, years before it can manifest itself.

A genetic test to predict cancer 10-11 years ahead of time
This test was performed to see how environmental factors could influence cancer, along with habits like smoking, abusing alcohol or hormones, genetic changes that occur and are put a large percentage of the women at a high risk of developing this disease.

A simple blood test is used for the genetic analysis of hereditary cancer. Researchers found a biological marker, methylation of the ATM gene, which has a very high ability to predict the risk of developing cancer, several years before diagnosis. 'Methylation' concluded that when one biological indicator is exposed to carcinogenic substances, or other abusive substances like tobacco and alcohol, it may trigger the development of cancer. On the flip side, this test will take time to reach the commercial market and even then cannot give an exact timeline as to when someone may develop the disease.

A simple blood test to predict breast cancer 5 years before it develops
This is the kind of medical miracle the world is looking for. Last year in April, researches in Denmark identified a simple blood test that can predict breast cancer five years before it actually develops with an accuracy of a whopping 80%.

It works by "measuring all of the compounds in the blood to build a 'metabolic profile' of an individual, in order to detect changes in the way chemicals are processed, during a pre-cancerous stage," says Laura Donnelly, health editor at The Telegraph, which covered this development. Danish researchers observed 57,000 participants over 20 years, gathering blood samples along the way, specifically comparing a set of 800 women who remained healthy or developed breast cancer within 7 years of their first blood sample. The researchers found they were able to predict, with 80 percent accuracy, which patients would be affected by the disease, just by looking at the metabolic profiles they built from the participants' blood samples. The results have been published in Metabolomics.

Once ovulation happens egg will stay alive in your tract for 24 hours and the sperm once ejaculated inside your tract will be alive for 24 hours.Hence during ovulation alternate day if you have intercourse it is enough.

Hello doctor. Its been 4 months, still my wife experiences pain in her vagina when we have sex. What could be the reason. And cure.

DGO, MBBS
Sexologist,
She may have tight vagina or vaginismus- the muscles of vagina go into spasm. Give more time to foreplay. It may also be due to infection.

Hello, If menses have not arrived, and its been a week, then get a serum beta hcg test done to rule out pregnancy first. If its just 72 hrs, then take an emergency contraceptive pill.

Want a gynecologist to respond 2 d and c one miscarriage at 6 weeks which ended after fetal heart beat was seen and a blighted ovum within 3 months what are the chances for normal delivery Just had laparoscopy to remove a cyst but doctor deflated it because he did not want to interfere the cyst in the fallopian tube.

From your description, it seems that you had a pregnancy that stopped growing after sometime and needed to be removed by d&c. You also had a cyst that was deflated under laparoscopy. But as per your description it was in the fallopian tube - this is something rare, the cysts usually are in the ovary, are not very harmful and can be deflated. I think it is a wrong idea that you have a cyst in the tube. As far as your cycles are regular, the chances of pregnancy will remainhigh.

Hi lybrate-user it would be better if you visit gynaecologist for internal examination to rule out infection and if it is type of the infection. You may need complete treatment.
