My wife is suffering from vaginal infection. How do it effect. We only had sex for 3 times. Any reason for infection.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Vaginal infection is common occurence in newly married couples. Here the male might be harboring the infection, but his immunity prevents it from being troublesome. But after marriage or sex, these infections are transmitted to the lady and she may show signs of it like itching, burning, soreness, and burning while passing urine and white discharge. Only a thorough examination of both of you can help find the cause and proper medicines may be given. So meet a gynecologist and get examined. Sometimes ladies complain of" burning" while passing urine and soreness due to daily sexual activity and due to tight fit of the vagina the urethra get rubbed at coitus and hence the symptoms. Also in the initial coitus, due to fear there may be reduced lubrication which adds to the soreness and" feeling of vaginal infection" so do visit the gynecologist.

Count days form 09 jan. Today you have completed 21+29+31+30+7 days. So that's 17 weeks. After 16 weeks you are in 2nd trimester or 5th month. For health pregnancy eat, drink, sleep well. Avoid physical and mental stress but one type of mild exercise will be beneficial. Best is 20-25 mins walk over flat surface. Avoid smoking, alcohol, drugs, food additives, dust, smoke, exhaust. Personal hygiene is must. Wear loose clothes and keep home environment cheerful and calm.

Mattresses & Pillows

Physiotherapist, Bangalore
Mattresses & Pillows


“My neck pain started two days ago, Immediately I removed my pillow”

This is the very usual dialogue that I hear in my daily practice from my patients who are suffering from neck pain. Is pillow that important factor in causing neck pain or in relieving neck pain?? Let us know the facts.

Neck pain can be caused because of various reasons. Poor neck posture is one of the reasons for neck pain. So, what should be your sleeping posture? How can a pillow alter your normal sleeping posture?

Body needs rest and sleep gives our body rest so that body and mind work efficiently. It is very important that we maintain a normal sleeping posture so that muscles also get rest.


  • Spine has to be straight
  • Neck has to be in line with the body.
  • It is better to avoid sleeping on tummy, as you will be forced to turn your neck to one side to facilitate breathing. Whole length of your sleep is spent with the neck turned to one side, out of alignment with the body, forcing the brain to sense something wrong and you wake up with a stiff neck. Pillow has no role here!!!

So, what kind of pillow can be used?

  • Pillow can neither be too hard as it doesn’t absorb the shock/ weight of head, nor it can be too soft as the weight of the head can depress the pillow down and might take neck too low than body.
  • Ideally the pillow has to regain its original shape faster once you wake up from lying position. If a pillow takes too long to come back to its original shape or doesn’t come at all or remains in the same shape, its time for you to change your pillow.
  • If you are lying on your back, its better to use a thin pillow which supports your head and neck. Please do not use a thick pillow in this position, as it may raise or bring your head and neck forward or higher than body causing stress to your spine.

Not using a pillow when you lie down in this position can take your neck backwards and might cause trouble breathing.

Recommended to use a thin/ lighter pillow when you lie down on your back.

  • If you are lying on your side (right or left), its better to go with a thicker pillow. Ideally the pillow should be as thick as the distance between your shoulder and neck, so that when you lie down on your side the neck doesn’t go down or go up and stays in line with the body. Pillow has to be used!!

Recommended to use a thicker pillow when lying on side.

Pillow is not a major cause of neck pain. Its always better to use a pillow than not using at all. Removing the pillow the moment neck pain starts is definitely not a good solution for your neck pain. Chose the right pillow and more importantly consult your Physiotherapist.


As with the pillow for neck pain, mattress is not a major cause for back pain.

  • Mattress should not be too hard, should not be too soft either.
  • If it is too soft, the broader areas of our body like the hips and shoulders, might press the mattress down thereby reducing the support for other body parts, which strains them as they do not get proper support.
  • If its too hard, the mattress wont be able to support the various natural curvatures of our body (broader and narrower areas), forcing the muscles to work more and get strained.
  • Its better to change a sacked mattress or too depressed mattress.
  • Mattress should be uniform in contour.
  • Lying bare on floor wont work!!!!

And more importantly consult your Physiotherapist for back related issues.

U should let your doctor find the cause of miscarriage, so that if any treatment has to be given, you can take it until you want to get pregnant. Secondly you shd be sure that there is no illness which is progressively harming your genital system, so that you donot face problems when you get pregnant again.

Food To Be Avoided During Pregnancy

MBBS, MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology

Food To Be Avoided During Pregnancy

Pregnancy is a really beautiful as well as a very sensitive phase in a woman’s life. Craving for your favourite food in the middle of the night, or even throughout the day, is a perfectly normal phenomenon. Although you deserve to be pampered with your favourite food, however, there are certain foods which irrespective of cravings you really need to avoid for the well being of that tiny little life inside you.

Here is a list of food items to be avoided during pregnancy.

  1. Starting with fruits, papaya and pineapples are big negatives. These fruits contain substances that produce uterine contractions inducing labour, and thus, abortion.

  2. Sesame seeds also tend to excite uterine muscles thereby causing contractions which may lead to abortion. So it would be an intelligent step to avoid intake of these. Other dry fruits like raisins, dates, almonds, walnuts, pistachios are safe to consume in a moderate amount.

  3. Spices that make way into this list include fennel and fenugreek seeds. These may induce uterine contractions too.

  4. Although fish is rich in omega 3 and is an important food to include in the pregnancy diet, intake of some sorts of fish might not be a good idea. Here is a list of the kinds of fishes that should be avoided.

    • Fishes containing mercury

    • Smoked or refrigerated seafood.

    • Fishes cultured in polluted water

    • Shellfish that is undercooked. Eg, clams, mussels, oyster

  5. Undercooked or raw eggs may be tainted with salmonella bacteria that might cause vomiting and diarrhoea. Desserts or sauces containing raw or uncooked egg should be avoided.

  6. Any form of undercooked or treated meat or poultry. This is because a parasite named toxoplasma may be present that might cause excessive food poisoning which in turn could cause foetal damage or miscarriage.

  7. Milk is one of the essential foods in pregnancy diet; however, any sort of unpasteurized milk is strictly negative.

  8. Sprouts and raw vegetables should be avoided. However, these can be eaten if shallow fried.

  9. One major setback for coffee addicts is that caffeine intake is required to be lowered to minimum amounts; that is, not more than one cup a day.

    • Herbal tea

    • Supplements

    • Saccharine

    • Canned food as well as street food.

There are many more little details that should be taken care of but this list would be handy for newly pregnant women. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dietitian-nutritionist.

6 Surprising Facts about Laughter

6 Surprising Facts about Laughter

Laughter is a type of response that occurs to you generally when you experience a funny or a pleasant situation. All the doctors also believe in the theory that laughter indeed is the best medicine. Laughing not only helps to cheer you up emotionally by boosting your mood, but also has complementary physical outcomes that are desirable. Here are some interesting and fascinating facts about laughter.

1. You are more likely to laugh around others - According to a medical research, it is a proven fact that laughter is generated by a person rather than a funny situation or a joke that you hear. It is the image of that person in your mind which is funny and everything he/she does or says seems to be funny for you. This is why you will probably laugh among a set of people rather than laughing all by yourself.

2. Fake laughter - A medical research conducted by Professor Scott has readily proven that the human brain has the ability to differentiate between a fake laughter and a real one. So, if you are in a group of people and somebody is trying to laugh forcibly and deliberately, then your brain is able to identify that person easily.

3. Laughter is contagious - As per the famous saying, when you laugh then the whole world laughs with you. It is a true thing and laughter is actually contagious as it tends to regulate a part in your brain when you hear others laughing.

4. Burns calories - Laughter is a good source of a physical workout as well as it burns calories when you laugh out loud. Laughing for around 10 to 15 minutes a day burns about 10 to 40 calories.

5. Leads to healthier relationships - It is a proven fact that laughing together with any individual help to strengthen the emotional bond that you share with that person. People who laugh together usually are able to trust each other more and their relationship lasts for a longer period.

6. Mood and Energy booster - Laughter is an instant booster if you are emotionally wrecked or suffering from a bad mood. It helps to cheer you up and make you feel good and confident about yourself. Additionally, it also helps to boost the energy levels if you are low on energy.

Apple has substances called phytonutrients and these phytonutrients prevent neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's and Parkinsonis.
  9. Healthier lungs: People who eat five apples or more every week have brought down their respiratory problems like asthma.
  10. Forestall Cancer: Cancer tends to form in different areas and organs of the body and spreads later on. Apples focus on different tumours, for example, colon growth, prostate disease and breast cancer in ladies. Hence, its positive effects are not just limited to one type of cancer.

The most fertile period of a cycle is mid-cycle if your wife has regular 28 days periods. So if you have sex from 9 days of starting a period for another 9 days or so you stand the maximum chance of conceiving.

Home Remedies for Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)

Vaidya Visharad
Sexologist, Narnaul
Home Remedies for Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)
Almost 75% of women experience at least one symptom of premenstrual syndrome (pms) every month. It is most common between the late 20s and mid-40s.

The exact cause is not clear, but it is associated with changes in hormone levels during the week before your period. Factors like poor diet, stress, high body mass index, environmental toxins and hereditary factors also contribute to this problem.

Pms is associated with a wide variety of symptoms, such as bloating, water retention, headaches, cramps, mood swings, irritability, food cravings, upset stomach, constipation, acne, breast tenderness and fatigue.

Although there is no real cure for pms, you can follow some natural and easy home remedies and practice a few healthy habits to reduce this problem. If your symptoms are more severe and disrupt your daily activities, consult your doctor. A severe form of pms is called premenstrual dysphoric disorder (pmdd).
