I'm really in need of help. Okay so on 11 February I had an ipill and had the ipill period on 16 I guess. I'm supposed to get my period on 1st of every moths. I missed my period in March. Like I don't get it at all and had a urine test which shows negative results. I had a lot of bloating and abdominal cramping. Nowadays I'm having back ache and lot of pain in the ovaries. I also had a few white discharges. I'm panicking and I really need a doctor to help. The previous Doctor I was chatting with closed the conversation just without giving the proper guidance can someone please help me. I'm really feeling depressed I need help. I'm just 18.

When I go to toilet, while pooping. Blood is dripping from my anus. It is happening for about 2 days. And it starts when the stool comes. At that time there is a little pain when the stool comes. What is the reason for it? It has happened to me earlier when I was 9 years old. That happened to me because I gave too much stress while pooping. For abt 5 days my diet is little messed up and I had to eat noodles n fast food like it n all. So I had to give stress. Is that the reason? Is it dangerous? What should I do? Is there any medicines or medication I have to take? Should I worry abt it? Will the blood loss effect my health?

DO’S In Gastritis: Chew your food properly. Eat SLOWLY. Many people find it so hard to do this. Taking meals'on the run' is a no-no, Chew and swallow food slowly. Be relaxed when you are eating, Sit upright or even stand up when you eat, Choose low fat foods rather than fatty foods, Finish eating at least two hours before you go to bed, Drink Water - lots of it! In most cases, a glass of water can relieve abdominal pains within ten minutes. Eat three small meals plus three snacks per day. Eat regularly to avoid periods of hunger. DO not: Try not to drink too much tea or coffee - caffeine raises acid levels. Avoid food sources like dairy products, cola beverages, fatty and fried foods, tomato products, and hot spices. Try abstaining from alcohol - it also raises acid levels. Smoking - nicotine also raises acid levels. Try not to use any form of aspirin (check those packaging inserts) Painkillers and arthritis medications (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or NSAID's) which contain ibuprofen (again, check those packaging inserts) can cause ulcers and delay the healing process Antacids should be used sparingly or avoided - most antacids contain magnesium and can cause diarrhea. Stop eating any food that causes discomfort - even if it tastes nice! Foods that are well toleratedVegetables - Fresh, frozen, or canned. Vegetables, Okra, sweet potatoes, squash, yams, broccoli, brussel sprouts, bean sprouts, carrots and carrot juice, potatoes, cabbage juice. Fruit - Papaya, avocados, bananas, Blue grapes, almonds and almond milk and any other fresh, frozen, and canned fruits. High-fiber foods - Brown rice, barley, oats, are helpful as they can naturally coat and soothe your stomach lining. Eggs - 3-4 egg yolks per week maximum. Smooth peanut butter -Fresh, frozen, and canned fruits. Meat in small 6oz portions at most - lean beef, pork, lamb, veal, crispy bacon, lean ham, and skinless poultry. Fish - All fresh, frozen, or canned fish packed in water. Foods to be avoided or that are not well toleratedThe foods listed below are to be totally avoided or taken in little amounts if it doesn't aggravate the symptoms. Abrasive roughage - like bran, nuts, popcorn, and seeds. Red meat in large quantities - animal proteins are high in acids. High-fat breads and cereals such as croissants, biscuits and crackers, and granola-based cereals. Also breads with nuts or dried fruit, or seeds. Wild rice. Raw vegetables, corn, tomatoes and tomato based products. Berries, figs, lemons, grapefruit, oranges, pineapples, and tangerines. Orange, pineapple and grapefruit juice. Highly processed or seasoned meats or poultry or fish - such as corned beef, polonies, sausages, sardines and anchovies. All fried or fatty meat, poultry, or fish.

You should consult a surgeon. If it proves to be haemorrhoids, it will be medically managed. Meanwhile avoid constipation and take plenty of liquids and fibre.

Generally fatty liver reverses on its own. If doesn't, it may deteriorate further. Some herbal medicine may help control it. No direct sex life interference but overall health deterioration may hamper sex performance. Good that you have quit smoking.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Food poisoning with rice dishes

Staph and Bacillus cereus can cause acute food poisoning within 6 hours of ingestion of food. B. Cereus is likely when rice is the culprit.
B. Cereus is able to persist in food processing environments due to its ability to survive at extreme temperatures as well as its ability to form biofilms and spores.
B. Cereus has been recovered from a wide range of foods, including rice, dairy products, spices, bean sprouts and other vegetables.
Fried rice is an important cause of emetic?type food poisoning associated with B. Cereus.
The organism is frequently present in uncooked rice, and heat?resistant spores may survive cooking.
Cooked rice subsequently at room temperature can allow vegetative forms to multiply, and the heat-stable toxin that is produced can survive brief heating such as stir frying
Two distinct types of toxin-mediated food poisoning are caused by B. Cereus, characterized by either diarrhea or vomiting, depending on which toxin is involved. The diarrheal toxin is produced by vegetative cells in the small intestine after ingestion of either bacilli or spores. The emetic toxin is ingested directly from contaminated food. Both toxins cause disease within 24 hours of ingestion.
The emetic syndrome is caused by direct ingestion of the toxin.
The number of viable spores and vegetative bacteria that produce diarrheal toxin is reduced by heating, although spores associated with emetic toxin are capable of surviving heat processing.
Cereulide is heat stable and resistant to gastric conditions.
The ingested toxin itself may therefore cause disease despite sufficient heating to kill B. Cereus.
The emetic syndrome is characterized by abdominal cramps, nausea, and vomiting. Diarrhea also occurs in about one?third of individuals. Symptom onset is usually within 1 to 5 hours of ingestion, but it can also occur within half an hour and up to six hours after ingestion of contaminated food.
Symptoms usually resolve in 6 to 24 hours.
Rice?based dishes in particular have been implicated in emetic toxin mediated disease, usually as a result of cooling fried rice dishes overnight at room temperature followed by reheating the next day.
The infective dose of cereulide required to cause symptoms is 8 to 10 micrograms per kilogram of body weight.
