My grandmother is now 67. And she got menopause at 45. 2 days back she got some bleeding .And today the bleeding was heavy. What could be the underlying cause. please help me with treatment.

Get a pap smear done for her to rule out cervical cancer. India is having highest population of cervical cancer, after China, she may not have had cervarix vaccines in her premenopausal days, so don't delay and immediately get a pap smear and sonography done for her, it's better to be safe than never. And prevention is better than cure, as even if there is cancer and it is in early stage, uterus can be removed, followed by chemotherapy and radiotherapy to prevent it spreading further.

Hello, If the test is coming negative you can't be pregnant, it is quite possible that you are suffering from PCOD. Start medications for that.

Hello, Please rule out pregnancy with a urine pregnancy test now and if negative then the delay can be stress induced and in that case just wait for another week to allow your menses to arrive naturally.

Intrauterine Device(IUD) - Are They Suitable for You?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS

Intrauterine Device(IUD) - Are They Suitable for You?

If you are thinking of adopting one of the effective birth control measures, you can try an intrauterine device (IUD). An IUD is a small plastic device which is placed in the uterus and it helps in preventing the pregnancy. A plastic string is attached to one end for ensuring proper placement and for removal. An IUD can be removed easily and is a reversible birth control method. There are several advantages and disadvantages of using IUDs.

There are two types of IUDs which are commonly used. They are as follows:

  1. Hormonal IUDs: In case of hormonal IUDs, a small amount of progestin is released into the lining of the uterus. This hormone is similar to the progesterone hormone. This hormone helps in thickening the cervical mucus, thereby, making it difficult for the entry of sperm into the cervix. The growth of the uterine lining is slowed down, which makes fertilised eggs inhospitable.
  2. Copper IUDs: In this form of IUD, a tiny amount of copper gets released into the uterus. Sperm is prevented from entering the egg as they get immobilised on the way to the fallopian tubes.

Advantages

  1. Most women who have used this contraceptive device are satisfied with them, according to surveys.
  2. A woman using an IUD is protected from pregnancy totally and no other preventive measures such as taking a pill every day is required.
  3. These devices start working as soon as they are fitted and can easily be removed.
  4. They can be implanted in the uterus four weeks after giving birth to a baby or after an abortion.
  5. Breastfeeding is safe for women using copper IUDs.
  6. Using IUDs enables a woman to smoke cigarettes and high blood pressure is prevented.
  7. Women who use hormonal IUDs experience less blood loss during menstruation and less pain.
  8. IUDs can be used for several years.

Disadvantages

  1. IUDs are quite expensive.
  2. IUDs can only be removed by a health professional.
  3. These devices do not provide protection from any sexually transmitted disease or HIV.
  4. The insertion of IUDs can cause a genital infection in the uterus and lead to pelvic inflammatory diseases.
  5. There are chances of an IUD getting misplaced in the uterus, which may lead to pregnancy and injuries as well. The wall of the uterus may get punctured upon insertion of this device, leading to cramping, backache and excessive uterine bleeding accompanied by pain.

It is important that you must consult a doctor before thinking of getting an IUD fitted. Several screenings and tests need to be carried out before deciding upon the IUD that would work best for you. 

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Hello lybrate-user, PCOD is Hormonal imbalance disorder & Lifestyle disorder too. Avoid such type of home remedies. Avoid junk, fast food. Eat healthy, home made satvik food. Do reular exercise (brisk walking, jogging, or swimming) atleast for 45 minutes. Do regular Pranayam yoga. Take your meals on time. Don't skip your breakfast. With the help of few excellent ayurvedic medicines & Panchkarm therapies you will definitely get rid of Pcod. You need a proper management. You also need to check all the required tests. For any help you can email me.

I am 20 year old female . I have pcod problem . I am worried . How do I make it proper ?
Polycystic ovarian syndrome can be completely cured with homoeopathic medicines. No side effects in homoeopathic medicines. We can prevent further recurrence. Avoid non veg and bakery items. Reduce intake of oily and fatty foods. Drink plenty of water. Daily walk about 45 mins. While taking homoeopathic medicines please avoid coffee and soft drinks for fast and better action of medicines. Nothing to worry. Homoeopathic medicines like apis, thuja, natrum mur, etc can cure pcos within 2 to 4 months if properly taken as per the instructions of a qualified homoeopath either directly.

You cannot predict like this I am afraid. The best thing is to ask when you get your next scan done after 20 weeks. But mind you there is a margin of error of upto 25% based on scan assessments.

Is vaginal pimples and whole body itching including smelly urine co related afte marriage.

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), MD - Ayurveda
Sexologist, Haldwani
Hello- You are suffering from vaginal infection. The vagina is kept healthy by a bacterium called doderlein bacillus that is found in the vaginal tract. It prevents infection by keeping the pH acidic. If you wash yourself too often with medicated soaps and detergents you can change your vagina’s pH, making it vulnerable to infection. Excessive use of deodorants and chemically-treated compounds, unhygienic sex, etc often leads to fungal infections. It can be cured by proper treatment and dietary changes.

Hello, yes norethisterone has side effects if you take regularly or overdose it. It should be taken on your doctor's prescription only. Initially in the 3 months of insertion you need to check it once in every 3 days. If you are suffering with heavy white discharge and prolonged menstrual bleeding then consult your gynae doctor.

It does not make it loose nor it affects hymen. Fir tightening the vagina we advise kegel exercise. While performing these exercises similar group of muscles also contract so it can not get loose.
