If your cycle is less than 35 days then it is normal, otherwise you need to do blood tests sugar pp, tsh, prolactin, testosterone and ultrasound of pelvis, depending on the reports treatment is decided.

Is anal sex is pleasurable for women too. Is it normal to have anal sex.Please tell.

MBBS, PG Diploma in HIV Medicine
General Physician,
Anal canal and vagina have their own purposes. The mucosal layer of the vagina is thick and with plenty of nerve endings which are the reason for pleasure and orgasm. Anal sex may cause injury to the rectum walls, damage to sphincter and is painful for the female partner initially. The risk of the std transmission is more for both male and female. It comes under sodomy act under ipc section 377 (correction) and not advisable in both male and female.

Pregnancy can be terminated with medicines (mifepristone and misoprostol) only till 7 weeks of pregnancy. You need to hurry to get the abortion done with medicines. Gynecologist only can write a prescription for her. There r very few side effects but they r easily manageable.

Ms. Lybrate-user. If you have no health problems related to contraceptive pills you can continue the same. Once your younger one becomes 5 you can get a tubal ligation done.

All About Acute Respiratory Infections

MD - General Medicine, DTM & H
Internal Medicine Specialist, Motihari
All About Acute Respiratory Infections

Recent years have witnessed the severity of acute respiratory infections. The main cause is exposure to more of respiratory Infection causing microorganisms. Everyone is at a high risk of exposure. The infections can affect all age groups equally. Therefore, you must know all about acute respiratory infections.

Acute respiratory infections may interfere in normal breathing. The infection often starts as a viral infection in the nose, trachea (windpipe) or in the lungs. In cases of non treatment, the infection spreads to the entire respiratory system. The infections are transmissible.

Causes:
There are many respiratory infections of which causes are unknown. However, a few known viral causes are as follows:

  1. Adenoviruses: These viruses are known to have over 50 different types of viruses causing common cold, bronchitis as well as pneumonia.
  2. Rhinoviruses: These viruses cause common cold. Those individuals, be it young or old, who have a weak immune system can have an acute respiratory infection.
  3. Influenza virus: This is also known as Orthomyxovirus with six types of viruses, such as Type A, B and C, Isa Virus, Thogoto Virus and Coronavirus. Out of these, Type A is known to cause a severe disease.
  4. Enterovirus: This virus is associated with several human and mammalian diseases, including acute respiratory infection.
  5. Respiratory syncytial virus: This virus causes respiratory tract infections in the lower respiratory tract.

Bacterial causes are as follows:

  • Bacillus anthracis
  • Bordetella pertussis
  • Corynebacterium diphtheria
  • Pneumococcus: It is a cause of meningitis and Pneumonia.
  • Streptococcus pyogenes
  • Haemophilus influenzae

Symptoms:
Few of the prominent symptoms are as follows:

  1. Itchy, watery eyes - Soreness behind eyes and often conjunctivitis
  2. Nasal discharge and congestion
  3. Sneezing
  4. Having Sore throat
  5. Coughing
  6. Severe Headache
  7. Fever
  8. Malaise
  9. Fatigue
  10. Muscle pain
  11. Diagnosis

The first thing that the doctor tends to check is the breathing pattern of the patient, followed by a number of checks:

  1. Fluid and inflammation in the lungs
  2. Nose and throat checks
  3. X-ray or CT scan would be required to check the condition of the lungs in advanced cases

There could be complications such as respiratory failure, respiratory arrest or congestive heart failure

Treatment:
Ideally for viruses, there isn't any cure. Medications that are prescribed are for the symptoms.

  1. Cautious use of antibiotics for the symptoms can reduce adverse effects as well as decrease costs. It will also reduce drug resistance.
  2. A single oral dose of nasal decongestant used in common cold could be moderately effective to aid congestion in grown-ups for a short period.
  3. Alternate medications, such as the use of vitamin C help in the inhibition and cure of upper respiratory infections.

Prevention:

  1. Probiotics and vaccination are available for certain infections such as URTIs, Adenoviruses and Streptococcus pneumoniae.
  2. Best prevention is to boost your immune system.

Secondary amenorrhea have treatment. It can be cured by medicine. Treatment depends on the cause of amenorrhea. Normal monthly periods usually return after the condition is treated. A lack of menstrual period due to obesity, vigorous exercise, or weight loss may respond to a change in exercise routine or weight control (gain or loss, as needed)

Negative report proves that you're not pregnant for sure and also some time it is late due to hormonal imbalance. You need to consult me privately. I can prescribe some other medicines.

My boyfriend and I never had sex and I am a virgin. I was wearing panties and yoga pants and he finished on my upper inner thighs which I immediately washed off with water and then after a few minutes I changed my pants. Is there a risk of getting pregnant? My panties were damp due to my own bodily fluids could the sperm have travelled?

Hi You should not be worried, these cysts are very small, and during cycles, they disappear. Also endometrial thickness is ok. You need to get investigated before start of treatment. But as you are 31, you should do it as soon as possible.

Dear Lybrate user. Pregnancy is possible only from 10th day of first day of period and to 20 day. That means pregnancy is possible only when the egg is available inside a woman and healthy sperm is ejected inside the vagina. Take care.

Lybrate-user - you may take this problem seriously, you need a immediate treatment, homeopathic treatment is safe and effective, causes - 1) having very dry skin or eczema can cause cracked, sore and bleeding nipples. If you have an eczema-like condition on your nipples or breasts it may be caused by: irritants in a cream, lotion, soap or perfume. 2) infections 3) small, benign, or noncancerous, tumors 4) hypothyroidism, or an under active thyroid.

If the pain is in the upper abdomen stomach area it could be due to gastritis.Avoiding spicy food,tea,coffee will help.If in the lower abdomen due to enlarging uterus.Will go away.Regarding heart beat you can repeat the scan after a week and check.
