Dear there are chances of her getting pregnant. Its too late for any emergency contraceptive so the best option is to wait for next periods and if it gets delayed then you have to consult a gynae.

Folic Acid - Why Taking It Is So Important?

MBBS, DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology), Fellowship in IVF

Folic Acid - Why Taking It Is So Important?

A lot of people suggest taking folic acid supplements to expecting mothers for a healthy pregnancy. But why? Why is folic acid that important? What is so ideal about folic acid supplements? Yeah, a lot of questions are bound to pop up. This article will explain the entire deal about this particular acid and why it is that important.

Folic acid is the synthetic form of vitamin B called Folate and it plays an essential role in the production of red blood cells, the formation of the neural tube of the baby, development of the spinal cord. Here is a list of benefits of Folic acid

  1. Folic acid, as discussed, helps in preventing neural tube defects.
  2. Serious birth defects like Spina bifida and anencephaly can be prevented if you take folic acid regularly.
  3. Other defects like cleft palate or cleft lip have also seen to be prevented when mothers have taken proper doses of folic acid.
  4. Certain types of heart defects can also be avoided.
  5. A serious blood pressure disorder called preeclampsia affects a lot of pregnant women but folic acid intake can help in the prevention of such a condition.
  6. Folic acid helps in prevention of anaemia
  7. The production, function and repair of a normal DNA also require intake of folic acid.
  8. Folic acid also enables rapid cell growth, therefore, rapid growth of the developing baby.

Now, these neural defects can occur at a very young stage, even before the proper development of the foetus. Hence, it is suggested that to be mothers start taking folic acid right from the beginning. Experts usually recommend about 400 micrograms of folic acid every day in the beginning, when one is trying to get pregnant. However, even during pregnancy crossing the level of 1000 micrograms per day is to be avoided.

Where can you get folic acid from?
Fortified cereals are usually the best food sources of folic acid. Natural folic acid can also be found in naturally dark green vegetables and in various kinds of citrus fruits. Folic acid supplements are also available. Other food sources of folic acid include-

  1. Beef liver
  2. Mature lentil seeds
  3. Spinach
  4. Egg noodles
  5. Great northern beans
  6. Bread
  7. Pasta
  8. Avocado

There are certain situations in which one might require extra folic acid, the reasons might be

  1. If the mother is overweight.
  2. If the mother has been pregnant previously
  3. If the mother is carrying twins.
  4. Women with a genetic variation of MTHFR in which the body has difficulty in processing folic acid. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

Hello Doctor, I am 26 year old and got married last November. We wish for a baby. My vaginal hole is really tight and while trying for intercourse his penis doesn't go in at all and am feeling pain with fingers sometimes. Could you please advise, is there any way I can have a hole/enlarge my vaginal opening.

Most often the pain is due to vaginismus which is pain due to involuntary contraction of the pelvic muscles during attempt of intercourse. You will need to understand the pelvic anatomy so that you are comfortable with intercourse. The vagina is so capacious that it stretches to accommodate a 3 kg baby with 9 cm head at 9 months pregnancy! you will need an examination to determine if surgical intervention is necessary or alternatively you can try lubricated self finger insertion initially with one and then gradually increase to two fingers. Foreplay will also help in getting adequately lubricated.

Hi, chances of you getting pregnancy is almost nil, as you had intercourse prior to menses and ovulation occurs in mid cycle. 14 days prior to next menses. So don't worry.

These ulcers are more common in women than men and more often occur between the ages of 10 and 40.

These factors are emotional stress, deficiencies in diet (Iron, B-12, and folic acid), menstrual periods, oral hygiene, allergy to food substances and trauma sites in mouth.It also seems that some have it running in their families.

Signs, Symptoms and Diagnosis of Jaundice

MBBS, MD - General Medicine
General Physician, Gurgaon
Signs, Symptoms and Diagnosis of Jaundice

Jaundice is a medical condition, which is characterized by the yellow coloring of the skin and eyes. It generally occurs when there is an excess of bilirubin in your system. Bilirubin is a yellow pigment formed in the liver by the breakdown of red blood cells. It normally gets discharged by the liver along with other dead red blood cells. So if you are suffering from jaundice, it usually indicates that you have some serious problems regarding the functioning of your liver, pancreas, or gallbladder.

Signs and symptoms:
Signs and symptoms commonly associated with jaundice include:

  1. Yellow-tinted eyes and skin
  2. The whites of your eyes may turn orange or brown in color
  3. Dark urine
  4. Pale stools
  5. High fatigue and vomiting (in severe cases)

Causes:
Jaundice, as mentioned above, occurs when there is an excess of bilirubin and the liver is incapable of metabolizing it along with the old red blood cells. It is more common in infants than in adults, because their livers are not fully developed. However, it is also a frequent occurrence in adults and could be a potential sign of any of the following problems:

  1. Liver infection
  2. Scarring of the liver, or cirrhosis
  3. Hepatitis
  4. Alcohol abuse
  5. Liver cancer
  6. Gallstones
  7. Pancreatic cancer
  8. Blood disorders, like hemolytic anemia
  9. Parasites in the liver
  10. Abnormal reactions to or overdose of medication

Diagnosis:
Diagnostic tests may include:

  1. Jaundice is diagnosed primarily by taking blood tests, to help measure the amount of bilirubin as well as to trace the presence of other diseases like Hepatitis.
  2. Liver function tests in order to make comparisons between levels of certain proteins and enzymes when the liver is in good shape and when it is damaged.
  3. Liver biopsies, where samples of liver tissue are first extracted and later examined under a microscope.
  4. Imaging studies, consisting of abdominal ultrasounds, computed tomography scans and magnetic resonance images (MRI) tests.
