Hello.

Preponing period is difficult and you do not know how long it may bleed. It's better to postpone periods so that it can be started when you wish.

Symptoms are certainly less reliable than your pregnancy test, but still for reassurance and proper diagnosis get your ultrasound pelvis and serum fsh and beta hcg done.

PCOD Drilling With Laparoscopy!

MD, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Ahmedabad
PCOD Drilling With Laparoscopy!

Patient present to us with Obesity, hirsuitism, irregular/delayed cycles, anovulation & Infertility. TVUSG shows peripherally placed multiple follicles with hyperthicosis of stroma & large ovaries. PCOD drilling is indicated in Clomiphen resistant PCOD, where weight reduction & metformin had been tried sufficiently (for six months) in the past. In the past, wedge resection by Laparotomy was routine practice for fertility enhancement. Today laparoscopic PCOD drilling has become very popular fertility enhancing surgery. As compared to Gonadotrophin (pure FSH) injections i.e. ART with super ovulation, PCOD drilling had following advantages: 60-70% Ovulation rate, 40-50% Pregnancy rate, reduced abortion & OHSS following drilling, reduced requirement of CC.HMG/FSH/hCG following drilling. Effect of drilling lasts for nine months. According to the size of ovary 4 to 8 punctures should be made on both ovaries. 

Benefits of Laparoscopy Surgery:

  1. Shorter Hospital stay.
  2. Earlier return to your routine work.
  3. Cosmetically vary small scar.
  4. Less pain after operation.
  5. Best fertility enhancement & Fertility results following Laparoscopy.
  6. Video-live operative file available in CD/DVD for future reference (Transparency about surgical procedure).
  7. The possibility of post-operative adhesion formation will be less, and the possibility of pain because of post-operative adhesions will also be less.  

Pre-operative Check Lists:

  1. Lab. Investigation for Surgery (Urine complete & Blood complete, HbsAg, HIV, R.B.S.etc.); Pelvic Trance vaginal USG report. S.FSH, S.L.H. & S.TSH.
  2. Specific Investigations for Infertility (Endocrine, Blood, Genetic, Husband’s Semen report etc. If the couple is infertile.)
  3. Operation planned from 4th to 10th day of Menstrual Cycle
  4. Enema & preparation/shaving of local parts.

No. Of Cuts on Abdomen:
Three cuts: One of 5 mm and second & third of 3 mm size.

Average Stay in Hospital:
4 to 6 hours. (DAY CARE SURGERY)

Average Duration of Surgery:
10 to 20 minutes

Average Blood loss during Surgery:
10-30 cc.

Average time after operation to resume normal activities/work:
Within 24 hours.

Anesthesia:
General Anesthesia (Patient will not feel any pain in Operation Theatre during surgery) 

Operative Procedure:

Inside the Umbilicus small needle is introduced and Co2 gas is insufflated inside abdomen. Rather than creating a large incision and opening up the body, tiny incisions are made and a laparoscope is inserted. This slim scope has a lighted end. It takes pictures – actually fiber optic images - and sends them to a monitor so the surgeon can see what is going on inside. 

Performing Laparoscopy usually only requires three tiny incisions less than one half inch, (about 5-10 millimeters) in length. One incision is made inside sthe navel, and another two are usually made near the bikini line. The first incision allows a needle to be injected into the abdomen so carbon dioxide gas can be pumped inside the cavity of the abdomen, which helps to keep intestines & omentum up and away from organs. This allows the surgeon a better view and more working space to maneuver the laparoscope and surgical tools as needed. 

Cystic Ovary is lifted with suction irrigation cannula from one port and High frequency needle is used to puncture the ovarian surface perpendicularly from opposite side port. No. Of punctures are decided on the base of the size of enlarged ovaries. Haemostasis is checked & Ringer lactate poured over ovaries after Drilling.

Post-operative Course:

Patient remains drowsy/sedated for 2-3 hours after laparoscopy but conscious & pain free. Patient can take fluids 3-4 hors after laparoscopy & light food after 4-6 hours. She may feel little abdominal & shoulder pain after laparoscopy for 24 hours but it cam be relived with pain killer tabs.

Most of the patients can walk normally without support and can take normal diet 6-8 hours after the laparoscopy. She can be discharged on the same day of the operation. Few patients may feel nausea & vomiting after laparoscopy, which can be very well controlled with injection in post-operative room. Patient can do her normal activity within 24 hours after laparoscopy.

Patient is advised to take antibiotics & analgesic tabs. for 5 days following laparoscopy. Patient is advised to report to doctor for severe pain or bleeding or fever in postoperative period (Day-1 to Day-5) immediately. Patient is advised to come for follow up 7 days after the Laparoscopy for dressing.

Irregular Menses - Know What Your Body Is Saying!

MBBS, DGO

Irregular Menses - Know What Your Body Is Saying!

Not getting your period on the expected date can make a woman nervous, especially if she is not planning a family. However, there is more than one reason for periods to be delayed or to be skipped. If this happens once in a while, you need not worry, but if your periods do not follow any sort of a schedule, you should see a gynecologist at once. Your body may be trying to tell you something. Here are a few of those messages that you may be missing.

  1. You may be too stressed out: In most cases, irregular menstrual cycles are triggered by high stress levels. Stress makes the body produce cortisol which has a direct effect on the production of estrogen and progesterone. It also interferes in the communication between the hypothalamus and the pituitary gland. This causes the hormone communication system in the body to shut down.
  2. You aren’t having a balanced dietYour diet also plays an important role in your menstrual cycle. If you have gained excessive weight recently or indulge in a carb heavy diet, the hormone levels in your body will fluctuate thereby, changing your ovulation date. In order to maintain a regular menstrual cycle, a woman’s BMI should be between 17-22 percent.
  3. You are exercising too much: Sudden weight loss, excessive exercising and being underweight can also affect the body’s hormone levels just as being overweight affects them. Some hormones are produced only in fatty tissue and a sudden drop in fatty tissues can lower the production of these hormones leading to irregular periods. A sudden spurt of excessive exercising can also drain your body of energy leaving it with no energy to menstruate.
  4. You may be suffering from polycystic ovarian syndrome: Missed or late periods are often also a sign of polycystic ovarian syndrome or PCOS. Look out for other symptoms of this condition such as weight gain, dandruff or excessive hair growth to diagnose this condition. PCOS needs medical attention so it is best to get yourself diagnosed correctly by a gynecologist.
  5. Your medication may be interfering with your hormones: Many types of medication interfere with the body’s production of estrogen and progesterone. Even simple over the counter medication can make your periods late by a few days.
  6. You may be menopausal: Lastly, if you definitely aren’t pregnant and are above the age of 40, you may be turning menopausal. As a woman turns menopausal, ovulation becomes sporadic and in turn influences periods to be irregular as well.

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

Cook a handful of rice in a half a lit of water in an open pan. When rice is ready don’t throw the residue water drink reason this water when it remains that much hot that you can consume. Drink it on adding 1 tsp of sugar. This relieves your leucorrhoea that within a week. This is one of the most common home remedies for leucorrhoea. Take pranacharya leucorest syrup 2-2 tsf twice a day. And pranacharya leucona capsule 1-1 twice a day.
