I want to know that how safe doing sex before period (means kitne din pehle hona chaiye )and after periods. And for good health (kidney din mei hone chahiye in a week or in a month.)

DNB, DGO, MD
Gynaecologist, Delhi
It is safe to have sex 1 week before and after periods if you don't want to get pregnant. There is no relation of sex with your physical health. It is more for your sexual health and your relationship with your partner.

How To Know & Build Premarital Compatibility?

How To Know & Build Premarital Compatibility?

The happiness of finally finding your soul mate and starting a new life altogether with your partner probably leaves you with exhilaration that knows no bounds. Deciding to opt for matrimony, however, takes a lot more than what we’d usually like to barter. Most people blindly enter into civil union without first demarcating their level of compatibility which is precisely why most marriages these days are falling apart. There’s a rather good chance that you might find yourself wondering how things could be any different later since you’re so much in love now. Unfortunately, the instances of marriages where things had started off looking rosy to everyone and ultimately shattered on the grounds of incompatibility are far too many to ignore. 

By discussing your expectations and desires, along with possible areas of conflicted ideologies helps you to understand each other better in the long run so that you may not unnecessarily complicate your relationship. Reflecting exercises generally go a long way in strengthening the bond and commitment in the long run. It is fatal to expect that, as individuals from possibly different backgrounds and definitely different histories, there is going to be a zero percent space for difference in opinions and ideals. 

In order to ascertain the level of compatibility before marriage, there are a number of things that you can engage in. To begin with, here are a couple of things that need to be looked into beforehand to ensure a long lasting relationship that functions on the solid grounds of mutual understanding and good faith: 

  1. Speak openly about each other’s background and how they were brought up (especially so if it’s an arranged marriage)
  2. Finance and future expectations need to be considered
  3. Expectations pertaining to family life and having children
  4. Your ultimate goals and ambitions, and see to it if they bring you on a point of conflict
  5. Medical complications, if any
  6. Your conceptions about your partner’s family and friends
  7. Social and recreational activities

Premarital counselling is another extremely viable option for the newly engaged couples or even the ones who are contemplating marriage. Always remember that there is more to a marriage than just the wedding ceremony and walking down the aisle. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Cholestasis Of Pregnancy - Understanding What It Is!

MBBS, MS -Gynaecologist

Cholestasis Of Pregnancy - Understanding What It Is!

The bile is one of the most important digestive juices and helps in digestion of fat. It is produced in the liver and travels down through the biliary duct to the gallbladder, where it is temporarily stored, before being released into the stomach when food is present for digestion.

Pregnancy is one of the main reasons for cholestasis. When an expecting woman develops itching in the hands and feet during the late pregnancy stages, it is usually indicative of obstetric cholestasis. Read on to know more about the causes, symptoms and management for this condition.

Causes:
While the exact cause for this condition is not clear, it could have a strong genetic component. It usually runs in families. Another reason attributed are the pregnancy hormones. The increased amount of hormones in the later stages of pregnancy affects the gallbladder functioning. There is either reduced flow of bile or complete obstruction of the bile flow. This causes the bile to flow back into the blood stream, where it gets deposited in the tissues, leading to itching. The chances of developing cholestasis also increases if it is a twin pregnancy. It is also highly likely that if you had cholestasis during the first pregnancy, you will have it during the subsequent pregnancies.

Symptoms:
The itching of the palms of the hands and the soles of the feet is almost diagnostic. Some may even have generalized itching across all body parts. It worsens at night and may affect sleep. The itching increases as the pregnancy advances and gradually subsides after delivery. This is another indication that it may be related to the hormones. As the liver is affected, other symptoms similar to any liver disease are also possible. These include jaundice where the whites of the eyes and the mucous membranes could turn yellowish to yellowish orange. This is caused by accumulation of bile pigments in these tissues. There could also be severe nausea and loss of appetite, which are common symptoms in a liver disease.

Complications:
Itching is the most common symptom for the mother, which gradually subsides. However, if it sets in, doctors would advise for early labor as the risks for the developing baby are quite high. Though not well established, cholestasis increases the chances of preterm delivery and fetal death in late pregnancy stages. The chances of meconium getting into the amniotic fluid and blocking the baby’s breathing is also high. It is always advisable to watch out for these symptoms, and as soon as you see any change, especially the onset of itching, reach out for medical help.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

lybrate-user ji, Thanks for the query. The blood glucose value (115 mg) mentioned is it fasting or after food? Because it is important to know that. To clear all doubts get an Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT) with 75 g of glucose in close by clinical lab. That should clarify. Thanks.

Pregnancy mahine k eek hi din rah sakti hai, jo din anda phute. Isliye couple 12 se 24 mahina bina family planning sadhan se yah din ke aaspas sambandh karne ke baad pregnancy nahi rahti hai to gynecologist ya to infertility specialist ke paas jate hai. Vahan bahut sare test karne padte hai aur dhiraj se treatment karani padti hai. Jiske par vishwas ho aise Gynecologist ya infertility specialist ke pas dono chale jaiye. Jisko periods barabar nahi aata hai unko jaldi jana chahiye.
