Hello, this is normal to experience a withdrawal bleed within next 7-10 days post ipill intake and as she has bled, it indirectly rules out pregnancy. However you may get a serum betahcg test done to rule it out conclusively.

Anger is one letter away from Danger

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
Anger is one letter away from Danger
How to control anger? Although the senses require a certain amount of satisfaction, unless regulated they become like wild horses, forcing one to obey their whims. Craving the objects of their satisfaction, the senses take control of the mind and intelligence, leading to frustration and anger when their impossible demands go unmet.From this anger, delusion arises, and from delusion, bewilderment of memory. When memory is bewildered, human intelligence is lost, leaving one in a hell of irrational behavior. As fever is a symptom of some disease in the body, anger is a symptom of ongoing material hankerings. Just as treating fever alone will not cure the disease, treating anger without understanding it to be a symptom of lust will not extinguish the unwanted behavior. To conquer anger, we must first ask how we shall conquer lust

Lord Buddha said that retaining anger is like ‘holding a live coal intending to throw it at someone else.
How can we deal with anger? Thomas Jef­ferson suggests, “When angry, count ten before you speak; if very angry, count hundred.” Con­sciously delaying action is useful in checking angry outbursts.

Humorous but works : When you are angry , pay a handsome amount to a good cause. In this way you would never get angry

When things go wrong, it is natural to feel angry. Yet just because it is natural doesn’t make it desirable. Of course, neither is it desirable to be passive amidst injustices; we need to be assertive and do what we can to set the situation right. But our response should alleviate the problem, not aggravate it.

And anger almost always aggravates the problem. When we become angry, we frequently lose control of ourselves. Or more precisely anger takes control of us using a provocative situation as a front.

And then anger makes us do things that we would never do normally. Things that may break others’ hearts. Things that may become lifelong wounds in our relationships. Things that we may regret for years.

In addition to all these long-term fallouts, anger extracts a heavy cost in the short-term too. After giving us a fleeting feeling of control and power, anger abandons us, embarrassingly and distressingly ensnared in a predicament worse than the original problem.

In fact, anger sometimes does worse than worsening the existing problem. Anger may create an entirely new problem – a problem that is bigger than the original problem. The original problem may might have been an unpleasant situation, but our angry response that starts off as a justified expression of displeasure (“I can’t tolerate such uncleanliness”) soon transmogrifies into a heart-breaking character attack (“You are a lousy fool, a shameless rogue, a wretched curse in my life”).

No wonder the Bhagavad-Gita (16.21) cautions that anger is one of the gates to hell – it propels us into hellish situations even in this world. Therefore the next verse (16.22) urges us to meticulously avoid the insidious influence of anger and thereby become free to act in our enlightened best interests.

The man who has escaped these three gates of hell, O son of Kunti, performs acts conducive to self-realization and thus gradually attains the supreme destination.

Hi. I got married 1.5 years back. My wife got conceived but in 40 days she started bleeding and when we checked in the hospital they scanned and said no heart beat seen. But for the second time when she got conceived, the first scan was successfully done and they confirmed on the heart beat. We were actually in 10th week and we had only one week for the third month scan. Between that time she had spotting but we thought it could be normal since it continued for the second day we went to hospital and took a scan and doc said no heartbeat and the growth is seen as 7 to 8 weeks. We were so shocked. Can you advise us what could be the reason? Recently I took a semen analysis done to see if there is any issue. Below is the report I received. Can you advise if there is issue with my sperm? I'm really worried. Macroscopic Examination: Specimen: Semen Color: Greyish -white Volume: 3.3 ml Liquefaction Time: 30 minutes Appearance: Viscid Opaque Reaction: Alkaline Microscopic Examination: Motile Sperms: 20% Sluggish Motile: 50% Immotile Sperms: 30% Total Sperm Count: 32.4 millions/ml Pus Cells: 3-4 /hpf Epithelial Cells: Nil Spermatogenic cells: 2-4/hpf Morphology: Pin Heads: 8% Amorphous heads: 6% Coiled Tails: 7% Curved heads: 5%

Semen analysis is normal. There is some evidence of infection. But that is not the cause of miscarriage. It appears unfortunately your wife had a first trimester miscarriage in both cases. She needs to get a few blood tests done and treatment will depend on the cause.

Lump discovered please help Hi, I have never had a lump in my breast before I'm 24 years old and I'm worried. The lump is on the same side as where I had an abscess removed recently. It's red and inflamed on the outside and tender to touch. Wondering what it could be, thanks .

It could be residual collection with added inflammation. Try taking some antibiotic and anti inflammatory medication for few days. If it subsides then there is nothing to worry. If it does not then you should have yourself examined by a surgeon.

Hi Ruchi, please go for malsupilisation of cyst wall as it will prevent recurrence of bartholian cyst in future. Please check for your blood sugars also because this condition is common in diabetes. Bartholian cyst is not premalignant condition and also won't hamper your fertility. Have a speedy recovery.

Genital Herpes - How Homeopathy Helps in Treating it?

Genital Herpes - How Homeopathy Helps in Treating it?

The main symptom of genital herpes include occurrence of blisters around or near the rectum. These blisters do break eventually, but they leave behind sores that are very tender and that take about 2 to 4 weeks to heal when the eruption of blisters occurs for the first time. The subsequent outbreaks are shorter and less severe than the first outburst. The disease can spread easily through sexual intercourse and it is better to consult a doctor, even if no clear symptoms are visible. Genital herpes cause tingling sensation and a lot of uneasiness in the genital area.

Causes of genital herpes

  1. The genital herpes infection is mainly caused by 2 different types of HSVs or herpes simplex virus.
  2. The first type of herpes simplex virus most commonly infect the lips and they cause cold sores, which are recognized as fever blisters.
  3. The first type of HSV type 1 virus can also produce sores in the genital area. The usual cause of genital herpes is the HSV type 2 and that can infect the mouth.
  4. Genital herpes can be simply transmitted from one individual to another during sex. The symptoms of herpes can be produced on and off in some people as it remains in the nerve cells of the body.

Symptoms of genital herpes

  1. Burning or itchy feeling in the genital area that lasts for more than 2-3 weeks.
  2. Pain is experienced in the genital area, legs and buttocks.
  3. Fluid is discharged from the Vagina, and pressure is experienced in the abdomen.
  4. The sores appear after few days on regions where the virus has entered like penis, vagina or the mouth.
  5. The other general symptoms that can occur under this condition are headache, fever, muscle aches and difficulty in urination.
  6. The glands around the groin area also get swollen at times.

Homeopathic medicines are safe
It is a contagious disease and use of homeopathic remedies is very effective in treating herpes. Remarkable results can be gained by taking homeopathic medicines, and these are extremely safe. There are no side effects caused by taking homeopathic medications, and are of great use in eradicating the condition from the root. The intensity of the genital herpes condition takes a long time to wither and use of homeopathic medicine though provides slow results is very effective and harmless. The best homeopathic medication that can be taken to treat genital herpes is Natrum Mur for both men and women.

Firstly get her pregnency test done, if it comes negative and bleeding was for 4 to five days then it was normal period. And if test comes positive after which bleeding occured that means it may be missed abortion. Consult doctor for confirmation.

Labour Pain and False Contractions - How to Differentiate Between the Two?

MD, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Vadodara
Labour Pain and False Contractions - How to Differentiate Between the Two?

It is likely for you to experience false labour pain or false contractions before the beginning of true labour during pregnancy. This is called Braxton Hicks contractions, and it is the way of telling the body to get ready for the real labour pain on the day of giving birth. However, these false contractions do not indicate that the labour has started or will begin shortly.

How do false labour contractions feel like?
Women may get a tightening feeling in their abdomen, which comes and goes away, due to Braxton Hicks or false labor contractions. These false contractions may feel like menstrual cramps. These contractions are unlike true labour and usually do not cause pain. They do not occur regularly and do not get closer together. They do not last for very long or get worse with time. These false contractions may be felt during the second or third trimester of pregnancy.

The difference between Braxton Hicks and true labor contractions
There are several differences between true labor pain and false labour contractions. These are as follows:

  1. Comparing how often these contractions occur allows us to differentiate between true labour pains and false contractions. False labour contractions are irregular while true contractions occur at regular intervals. They last for over a minute, and they get stronger and closer with the passage of time.
  2. The change in these contractions are based on your movement, which allows us to differentiate between the two types. False labour contractions may end when you take a walk or rest, and stop when you change your position. In case of true labour pains, the contractions keep on continuing irrespective of any kind of movement or change in position. They do not stop even when you take some rest.
  3. The strength of true labour pain and false contractions is different. False labor contractions are weak in general and there are less chances of them getting worse. They are stronger in the beginning and gradually weaken. However, true labour contractions get increasingly stronger with time.
  4. We can differentiate between the two types of contractions on the basis of the areas which are affected with pain. False labour contractions only cause slight pain in the front part of the abdomen and the pelvis. True labour pain is much more intensive in nature. They usually begin from the lower back and move to the front abdomen region. They may start in the abdomen and move back as well.

If you are not sure and cannot differentiate between true labour pains and Braxton Hicks contractions, it is essential for you to consult a gynaecologist. A doctor will be able to identify the true nature of the contractions.

Age of pregnancy is usually calculated in terms of months or weeks. It should be calculated from first day of last menses. With 8 th January as first day of last menses, today u r almost 2 months or 8 weeks. Yes sex can be practice during pregnancy. After 5 months of pregnancy one needs to change the position of male partner. Intercourse can be practiced in male standing position or sideways position. Male partner should not lie on the tummy or growing fetus. Pain in breast is a sign of pregnancy
