Diagnostic Tests Females

Diagnostic Tests Females

We provide testing for fertility by all modalities ranging from reproductive hormones to diagnostic ultrasound to ascertain the cause. It is advisable that we make you undergo these tests before your final treatment/ plan of management is started.

  • Blood tests: These include a whole array of blood investigation ranging from CBC , Urine routine microscopy, RBS, TSH, PROLACTIN, VDRL, HIV, HBSAG, HCV, AMH. And any other test depending on the history of the couple.
  • Transvaginal ultrasound: A complete ultrasound of the uterus and adnexa is done to diagnose any anatomical disorder.
  • Specific tests: In cases of recurrent implantation failure and recurrent pregnancy loss or if required other tests are also advised.
  • Diagnostic Laparoscopy and Hysteroscopy: For many, this test is an important part of a fertility evaluation. Laparoscopy takes place under general anaesthesia with small incisions made at or just below the navel and the pubic hairline. A laparoscope (a small-diameter telescope) is passed through the incision, which enables one to view the ovaries, fallopian tubes, uterus and pelvic cavity for abnormalities. We can check that the tubes are open (tubal patency) by injecting dye through the uterus and observing it spill or not through the ends of the fallopian tubes.
  • Hysteroscopy: uses another small-diameter telescope called a hysteroscope. This enables to assess the uterine cavity for abnormalities such as polyps, adhesions or fibroids.

7 Fat Rich Foods That Are Actually Good For You!

It is a very common notion that fat is not good for your body. Most people have started opting for sugar instead of fat, which, in turn, has led to the rise in cases of diabetes. Recent studies have shown that fat is actually healthy for your body. Fat plays an important role in the body such as forming the membranes of the cell and reducing inflammation.

Here are some foods that are rich in fat and are actually good for you:

  1. Avocado: Avocadoes are different from other fruits in the way that they are rich in fats unlike other fruits, which mostly contain carbohydrates. It mostly contains oleic acid, a type of monounsaturated fat that is beneficial for the immune system. They are also rich in fiber that lowers the bad cholesterol levels in the body.
  2. Dark chocolate: As mouthwatering as it can get, dark chocolates never fall out of a foodie’s list of things he can’t do without. Studies have always attributed chocolates with all the ill effects they can possibly bring on you. However, recent researches have come up with quite contrary results, which can make all the prejudiced ones eat the humble pie. Dark chocolates, apart from their exotic varieties, come with incredible health benefits as well. It is rich in fats and antioxidants, known to improve your cardiovascular health. Chocolate is also known to lower blood pressure and improve brain function.
  3. Fish: Fish such as sardines, mackerel and salmon are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids which are very beneficial for your heart. It lowers the risk of heart disease and other cardio vascular diseases.
  4. Nuts: Nuts are rich in healthy mono-saturated fats which reduce the risk of diabetes, obesity and heart diseases. Nuts also contain magnesium and Vitamin E which are good for the body.
  5. Extra virgin olive oil: Extra virgin olive oil is rich in Vitamin K and E along with various antioxidants. These antioxidants help in preventing inflammation and free radical damage to the body.
  6. Chia seeds: Chia seeds are types of seeds which are rich in fats and fiber, thus promoting satiety. They have anti-inflammatory properties and help in lowering blood pressure.

Hello lybrate-user. I am Obstetrician and Gynecologist by profession. Bed rest is of utmost importance in your case. While sleeping kindly make sure that you are sleeping in head low position (for this you can elevate foot end of your bed by putting one brick). You can consult with your treating Obstetrician regarding the medicines which help to keep uterus relaxed (tocolytics). You can start tocolytics with your treating Obstetrician's advice.

Till which month should we have sex in pregnancy 6 or 7? And should I use condom if my wife is pregnant?
Both of you are always on Safer side with Condom, It all depends on general health of expecting mother, best option is to minimise sexual activity during pregnancy. Take some precautions during intercourses, Avoid pressure on her lower abdomen, Spooning position during intercourse is preferred during pregnancy. Also mild intensity women on top position can be found a bit safe. Try your best to avoid or minimize sexual activity during pregnancy. She should also consult gynaecologist for her condition of uterus and baby growing inside.

Hello dear, your doctor is absolutely correct in suggesting for lscs. Grade 3 maturity of placenta with reduced liquor indicates that baby might land in trouble. So it's better to deliver once maturity is attained.

Is it Appropriate to Have Sex During Teenage?

Fellow,European Committee of Sexual Medicine, Diploma in Psychological Medicine, M.B.,B.S
Sexologist, Jaipur
Is it Appropriate to Have Sex During Teenage?

Well, very tough one to answer. There can be no right or wrong answers. Most parents will wish their kids to abstain till marriage and youngsters will always question it with lots of reasoning. Some will argue to have grown up enough to take appropriate decisions and with easy availability of contraceptives, "what's the big deal"they may ask ? They will always label their parents and those in favour of abstinence as old fashioned persons always giving unsolicited advice because it is their life after all ! Why should they listen to anyone? 

Sweet sixteen is a very tender age when lots of hormonal changes take place. Surge of chemicals in the body make you feel very different like never before. There is a strong but sweet attraction to someone of the opposite gender you knew for quite some time. Your friends tell you a lot of interesting and romantic stories about their own life , some of them may be a work of fiction . You may feel aroused while watching some intimate scenes in a movie. Many of you try to calm down by masturbating , which is perfectly safe way to experience ultimate pleasure in absence of the "real one" .During one of "those" discussions with your friends, their may be a mention of virginity and wish to try the real thing. I find lots and lots of youngsters to have tried that real thing but is it appropriate? 
One thing is sure. As you grow up, there are a lot of mile stones or possible goals to be achieved like doing well in studies, working hard for a good career, achieving both emotional, social and economical independence and of course experience this pleasure which will inculcate intimacy and help you mature as a person. Making babies is a very minor mile stone and many may not opt for this but other goals are inescapable. 
Now what ever your parents want , they can't accompany you all the time . It is you and only you who will decide what you want to do with your life . You need to set your priorities right. No one can stop you from experiencing the "real thing " at the time you chose . You can argue that you are mature enough to focus hard on studies, prepare for career and experience "that thing"     

In my opinion , it may become too much of a multi tasking.  I know for myself I am not good at it. I have also been through all these chemical "locha " There was a strong urge to experience "that joy" with someone changing each day in fantasies . Probably I didn't have the courage to ask someone for a date so waited till marriage Fine, that may have been a blessing in disguise if I look back on all those wonderful years of my school and college. It was not this common as well  those days ,as it is today but I could focus very hard on my studies and today, I am what I am. Really, was it something so great I wish I should have done it earlier? It was great and still is , but studies is the real asset I Accumulated to reach here. All people are different so others may be more efficient in multitasking  but There is a chance that you are driven more by the raging chemicals and start focusing on it more than it deserves. Really, if by any chance, it so happens, you lose lots of time and may not achieve your potential. This chance to work for career will not come twice . Still you may be capable of doing everything perfectly but it becomes a high risk path. You want to tread a safer approach or walk on a superhighway is your choice. At the end of the day, people will judge you by what you have achieved . It is of no importance at what age you lose virginity. 
So decide for yourself what is right for you at which age. My job is to tell you positives and negatives

Summer Steps for Healthy Living

BHMS
Homeopath, Solan
Summer Steps for Healthy Living

In the warmer, longer, laziest days of summer, the living may to be easy but your life probably feels less chaotic.

Give Your Diet a Berry Boost

If you do one thing this summer to improve your diet, have a cup of mixed fresh berries -- blackberries, blueberries, or strawberries -- every day. They'll help you load up on antioxidants, which may help prevent damage to tissues and reduce the risks of age-related illnesses. Blueberries and blackberries are especially antioxidant-rich.

A big bonus: Berries are also tops in fiber, which helps keep cholesterol low and may even help prevent some cancers.

Floss Daily

You know you need to, now it's time to start: floss every single day. Do it at the beach (in a secluded spot), while reading on your patio, or when watching TV -- and the task will breeze by.

Flossing reduces oral bacteria, which improves overall body health, and if oral bacteria is low, your body has more resources to fight bacteria elsewhere. Floss daily and you're doing better than at least 85% of people.

Get Outside to Exercise

Pick one outdoor activity -- going on a hike, taking a nature walk, playing games such as tag with your kids, cycling, roller blading, or swimming -- to shed that cooped-up feeling of gym workouts.

And remember, the family that plays together not only gets fit together -- it's also a great way to create bonding time.

Be Good to Your Eyes

To protect your vision at work and at play, wear protective eyewear. When outdoors, wear sunglasses that block at least 99% of ultraviolet A and B rays. Sunglasses can help prevent cataractscataracts, as well as wrinkles around the eyes.

And when playing sports or doing tasks such as mowing the lawn, wear protective eyewear.

Vacation Time!

mprove your heart health: take advantage of summer's slower schedule by using your vacation time to unwind.

Vacations have multiple benefits: They can help lower your blood pressureheart rate, and stress hormones such as cortisol, which contributes to a widening waist and an increased risk of heart disease.

Aloe Vera Ke Fayde Aur Nuksan - एलोवेरा के फायदे और नुकसान

एलोवेरा  एक  रसीला  पौधे है  और  इसके  पत्तों  में  पानी  का  भंडार  है,  जो  मोटी  और  मांसल  हैं। इसकी पत्तियां दो पदार्थ उत्पन्न करती हैं - जेल, जो कि कई अन्य पोषक तत्वों में मिश्रित होती है, और रस, जिसे एलो लेटेक्स भी कहा जाता है। एलोवेरा जेल व्यापक रूप से सनबर्न को दूर करने और घावों को ठीक करने के लिए जाना जाता है। जेल आमतौर पर कच्चे रूप में और सीधे प्रभावित त्वचा पर लगाया जाता है। एलोवेरा जेल त्वचा के लिए बहुत फायदेमंद हो सकता है, धूप की कालिमा, कीट के काटने, चकत्ते, कटौती और घावों के साथ मदद कर सकता है। यह एंटिफंगल, जीवाणुरोधी है और कोशिकाओं के उत्थान में मदद करता है। एलोवेरा  लेटेक्स  का  स्वाभाविक  रूप  से  अवसाद,  कब्ज,  अस्थमा  और मधुमेह  के  इलाज  के  लिए  प्रयोग  किया  जाता  है।
एलोवेरा में कई विटामिन और खनिज शामिल हैं जो शरीर के सभी प्रणालियों के उचित विकास और कार्य के लिए महत्वपूर्ण हैं।


एलोवेरा के लाभ:
1. झुर्रियों से मुक्त त्वचा के लिए: 
इसमें त्वचा, शरीर और स्वास्थ्य के लिए बहुत से लाभ हैं। एक शानदार एंटी-बैक्टीरिया, अनुत्तेजक पौधे के रूप में काम करने के अलावा, यह झुर्रियों से छुटकारा पाने में भी मदद करता है। यह त्वचा को मॉइस्चराइज करने में मदद करता है और त्वचा से मृत कोशिकाओं को हटाता है।
2. कब्ज से राहत: एलोवेरा का रस पीने से पेट और आंतों में जलन को कम करने में मदद मिलती है। इसका रस चिड़चिड़ा आंत्र सिंड्रोम, कोलाइटिस और आंत के अन्य सूजन संबंधी विकारों में सूजन को कम कर सकता है। इसके अलावा, यह आंतों में स्वस्थ बैक्टीरिया बढ़ा सकते हैं जो पाचन में मदद करते हैं।
3. मुँह के छाले को ठीक करता है: यदि इससे मूह के छल्लों पर दिन में कई बार लगाया जाए तो चिकित्सा प्रक्रिया को गति देने में मदद करता है।
4. कोलेस्ट्रॉल के स्तर को कम करता है: एलोवेरा रस में बीटा (β) सीटिस्टरोल नामक एक यौगिक होता है, जो शरीर में कोलेस्ट्रोल स्तर को कम करने में मदद करता है।
5. प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली को बढ़ावा देता है: एलोवेरा में मौजूद ब्रैडीक्नास प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली को उत्तेजित करता है और संक्रमण को मारता है। एलोवेरा में जस्ता भी शामिल है, इससे हमें रोगों को बंद करने, जीवाणुओं को मारने और हमारे सेल झिल्ली के कार्य की रक्षा करने में मदद मिलती है। 
6. तनाव कम कर देता है: एलोवेरा को एक अनुकूलन माना जाता है। एलोवेरा का रस न केवल मानसिक तनाव से राहत देता है बल्कि शारीरिक तनाव से निपटने में भी मदद कर सकता है। 
7. यह मधुमेह के इलाज में मदद करता है: एलोवेरा रक्त शर्करा के स्तर को कम करने के लिए जाना जाता है। इसमें ग्लूकोमान्स मौजूद हैं जो रक्त शर्करा के स्तर को कम कर देता है।
8. एंटीसेप्टिक है: यह आपकी पाचन तंत्र को साफ करने में मदद करता है। यह खून को शुद्ध करने में भी मदद करता है। 
9. रक्त प्रवाह में सुधार: एलोवेरा आपके केशिकालों के आकार को बढ़ाने में मदद कर सकता है जिससे आपके शरीर में रक्त परिसंचरण में सुधार हो सकता है।
 

एलोवेरा रस के दुष्प्रभाव:
एलोवेरा जेल को इस्तेमाल करना सुरक्षित माना जाता है, लेकिन लेटेक्स से निकाले जाने वाले अप्रसारित रस का सेवन करने से कई साइड इफेक्ट्स पैदा हो सकते हैं, जैसे कि:
1. एलोवेरा रस में एन्थ्राक्विनोन नामक एक पदार्थ होता है, जो रेचक होता है और बड़ी मात्रा मंन डायरिया पैदा कर सकता है।
2. एलोवेरा में मौजूद लेटेक्स कोलाइटिस, क्रोहन रोग, एपेंडीसिटीस, डायवर्टिकुलोसिस, आंतों की बाधा, रक्त स्राव, पेट दर्द और अल्सर जैसी समस्याएं का कारण बन सकता ह ।
3. एलोवेरा का रस पीने से एलर्जी की प्रतिक्रिया हो सकती है जैसे कि त्वचा के दाने या पित्ती, खुजली या सूजी हुई त्वचा, साँस लेने में कठिनाई, सीने में दर्द और गले में जलन।
4. गर्भ और स्तनपान कराने वाली महिलाओं को अल्युवेरा जूस लेना सक्त मना है। यह गर्भवती महिलाओं में गर्भाशय के संकुचन को प्रोत्साहित कर सकता है, जिससे गर्भपात और जन्म दोष हो सकते हैं।
5. एलोवेरा के रस से शरीर को अत्यधिक मात्रा में एड्रेनालाईन उत्पन्न हो सकता है, जो दिल की स्थिति से पीड़ित लोगों के लिए हानिकारक हो सकता है।
6. लंबे समय तक की अवधि के लिए अतिरिक्त खपत स्यूडोममेलाइसोस कोली का कारण हो सकता है। यह कोलोरेक्टल कैंसर का खतरा बढ़ा देता है।
7. एलोवेरा रस की अधिक मात्रा में लेने से श्रोणि में रक्त का निर्माण हो सकता है, जिससे आपके गुर्दे को नुकसान हो सकता है।

When 24-year-old Erin learned that she had type 2 diabetes she simply could not believe it was true. This could never happen to her, she felt. The diagnosis must be wrong. During the next few weeks Erin was prescribed appropriate treatment, and given advice on self-managing her condition, to control symptoms and reduce the risk of long-term problems. But before too long it became clear that Erin was continuing to suffer symptoms. Her diabetes was clearly not under control.

Erin was eventually referred to our clinic, where we discovered why the standard therapeutic approach was not working for her. Deep down, she still did not believe that she had diabetes. When faced with pressures in her daily life – Erin had recently moved to another country to take up a demanding job – she would feel overwhelmed and simply stop managing her diabetes, which seemed much less important than the immediate issues facing her. We helped Erin to recognize and understand this pattern of behavior, and to learn to cope with her disease. She has now finally accepted that she has diabetes, and understands clearly that she can benefit by taking responsibility for her treatment, complying with instructions and adopting a healthy lifestyle.

Erin's case is by no means unique. Studies suggest that less than 50 percent of patients with a chronic disease follow their management plans correctly, for a wide variety of reasons. Many people with diabetes, for example, do not adhere to their prescribed diet or take their prescribed medication, resulting in poor metabolic control and a high risk of developing long-term complications.


Two major external factors influence the course of diabetes in an individual patient. Healthcare professionals control one of these when they establish a management plan, involving specific treatments, lifestyle modifications and regular assessment. The other factor, controlled by patients, is their ability to self-manage the disease, adapting the plan according to daily circumstances.

Few people – if any – will have this ability when diagnosed, and it is the responsibility of health professionals to help patients develop the necessary knowledge and skills. Patient education is widely recognized as vital for effective long-term care. However, its implementation is often inadequate, and too often it involves little more than putting information in front of the patient. Key issues for the patient, such as understanding the implications of the disease and learning how to incorporate its management into their day-to-day life, are sometimes not addressed.

Hello lybrate-user. As you have written that your girl friend is pregnant and confirmation is done by urine pregnancy test. I advice you to take her for ultrasonography with the letter of obstetrician, USG will give very clear idea about the duration of pregnancy and location of the pregnancy. If her pregnancy size is small and intra uterine then she can undergo medical termination of pregnancy under the care of experienced obstetrician. She should do haemogram and blood group before this procedure.

Signs and symptoms of bile duct cancer

MD, DTDC , MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
Signs and symptoms of bile duct cancer

Cholangiocarcinoma (Bile duct cancer), like any other cancer, leaves a person physically, mentally and emotionally drained. It has been mostly found to affect people above 60 years of age. The signs and symptoms associated are so common that very few people consult a physician. A delayed diagnosis implies delayed treatment. This goes on to aggravate and complicate the situation further. One needs to be a little alert. Any symptoms, no matter how common, should not be taken lightly. Look for the early signs and symptoms and bile duct cancer can be fully cured.

Signs and symptoms associated with Cholangiocarcinoma:
Bile duct cancer can be Extrahepatic (occurs in the duct outside the liver) or Intrahepatic (cancer develops within the smaller ducts inside the liver). It must be noted that Intrahepatic Bile duct cancer and Liver cancer are different.
-      Bile duct cancer results in blocking the bile duct. This blockage severely effects the secretion of bilirubin and bile from the liver. Thus, the secretions (bile and bilirubin) which are supposed to flow into the intestine move back into the bloodstream. An elevated level of bilirubin in the blood gives rise to a condition, known as Jaundice (a condition resulting in yellowing of the eyes and the skin). The problem lies in the fact that many other factors can equally contribute to Jaundice. Consulting a physician at the earliest is the best resort.
-      A sudden or drastic weight loss and loss of appetite is an alarming sign of Cholangiocarcinoma.
-      Excessive itching can be an indication of something as big as bile duct cancer. Itching can be an outcome of the increased bilirubin (blood) reaching the skin.
-      At an advanced stage of Cholangiocarcinoma, a patient may experience severe abdominal pain.
-      At times, the tumour in the bile duct might exert immense pressure on the nearby organs. This can give rise to an enlarged abdominal mass. Bloated feeling is also very common amongst the patients.
-      An unusual change in the colour of the stool and urine should not be neglected. The elevated bilirubin level from the intestine is usually eliminated out of the system through the urine.  Thus the stool appears lighter and the urine a shade darker.
-      A cholangiocarcinoma patient can, at times feel nauseated. Fever is also a common but an extremely important indication.

Bile duct cancer or cholangiocarcinoma can lead to many other complications. Click below to know every minute detail associated with Cholangiocarcinoma.

Is bed rest necessary after ivf pregnancy? Is light work like cooking. Allowed. I conceived by ivf in aug 16. But gone through pre term delivery in 5th month. I did job. So please suggest me for next attempt. What are the precautions?

Obstetrician, Pune
Bed rest along with mental peace is of utmost importance in pregnancy. In your next pregnancy you may need cervical stitch as a prophylactic measure. Your obstetrician will explain you the appropriate time to put the cervical stitch and procedure of cervical stitch and will guide you regarding the same. I will suggest you to take a leave from your job once you become pregnant. You should avoid strenuous work and long and tiring journey once you become pregnant. No sexual intercourse once you become pregnant.

Amazing Health Benefits Of Bael Fruit

Amazing Health Benefits Of Bael Fruit

1. Bael fruit for constipation:

Fast foods that is very low in fiber is the main cause of constipation. Eating a traditional diet rich in fiber will treat constipation very effectively and if combined with home remedies will give the best results. Though fruits like bananas, mangoes helps people who suffer from constipation, bael fruit gives amazing results. Consume bael fruit regularly to get rid of constipation. The fruit is so full of fiber that it treats constipation very quickly. To eat, cut the fruit in half, sprinkle some brown sugar and enjoy it.

2. Bael fruit for ulcerative colitis:

A male about 35 years was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis and doctors started steroid medications for him as his condition was worse. However despite taking steroids for weeks he kept having the flare ups. Finally the patient started looking up for alternate therapy and he found bael fruit. After taking bael fruit two times a day for a few weeks he could reduce the dosage and finally he was steroid free. After reading the incident, I was amazed at how a small fruit had saved the patient from so much pain. If you suffer from ulcerative colitis, please give bael fruit a try, as it does not have side effects.

3. Bael fruit for diabetes:

Bael fruit is good even for diabetics because bael fruit keeps the insulin level stable and even many doctors and nutritionist recommend bael fruit for diabetics. Bael fruit has an soothing effect on the stomach due to it's high fiber content. Try to include bael fruit in the diet in moderation. Too much of bael fruit will result in an upset stomach. If you are a dibetic try to eat it as a whole fruit, instead of juicing it.

4. Bael fruit juice for hair and skin:
