Trichomonas Vaginalis - Ways You Can Prevent Yourself!

Trichomonas Vaginalis - Ways You Can Prevent Yourself!

Trichomonas vaginalis is a sexually transmitted infection (STI). It is sometimes referred to as trichomonas or trichomoniasis, or shortened to TV. The term trichomonas is used here. 

If you are suffering from trichomonas vaginalis, it is important for you to know about protecting yourself against this condition. Trichomoniasis is a sexually transmitted disease (STD) that is caused by an organism known as trichomonas vaginalis. This disease is more common in women than in men. Men too can get infected and pass on the infection to their sexual partners.

Signs & Symptoms-

Up to half of infected men and women will not have any signs or symptoms at all. Signs and symptoms usually show up within a month of coming into contact with trichomonas. You might notice:

Women

  1. Soreness, inflammation and itching in and around the vagina. This can cause discomfort when having sex.
  2. A change in vaginal discharge – there may be a small amount or a lot, and it may be thick or thin, or frothy and yellow. You may also notice a strong smell that may be unpleasant.
  3. Pain when passing urine.

Men

  1. A discharge from the penis, which may be thin and whitish.
  2. Pain, or a burning sensation, when passing urine.
  3. Inflammation of the foreskin (this is uncommon).

Diagnosis
A physical examination and certain laboratory tests are carried out for the diagnosis of trichomonas’s. Tests are carried out on a sample of the vaginal fluid to find out disease-causing parasites. It is harder to detect the parasite in men, than in women.

Treatment
Commonly, a certain oral antibiotic is prescribed for treating trichomonas’s. It is the only medicine used for this purpose, but should be avoided by pregnant women. If you are infected, your partner should also be treated at the same time for the prevention of reinfection and further spreading. If you are undergoing treatment for trichomonas’s, it is advised that you avoid having sex until the treatment gets over and all symptoms get eliminated. You should take your medicine even if you improve and after the symptoms are gone. A retest should be carried out after three months to know about the infection’s status.

Prevention
You can prevent or protect yourself from trichomonas’s vaginalis by taking the following steps:

  • Have protected sex by using condoms every time.
  • Sexual abstinence or limiting your sexual contact to one partner is recommended.
  • Avoid sexual contact if you think you are affected.

You should consult a doctor on experiencing any genital symptoms such as burning urination, discharge, and the development of sores or rashes. Also, you must stop having sex with anyone after experiencing these symptoms. 

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

Can Pelvic Pain Be A Sign Of Endometriosis?

Can Pelvic Pain Be A Sign Of Endometriosis?

For most women, the week of her period is uncomfortable. However, for some women, periods are associated with debilitating pelvic pain. This is usually the result of a condition known as endometriosis. This is a condition where the tissue that lines the uterus or the endometrium is found outside the uterus as well. It usually involves the ovaries, fallopian tubes and tissues lining the pelvic region. In rare cases, it may be found in other parts of the body as well. Endometriosis can lead to cysts in the ovaries, adhesion of pelvic tissues and organs and also cause infertility.

The pain associated with endometriosis is caused due to the fact that the tissue that is outside the uterus behaves in the same manner as that inside the uterus but has no way of being removed from the body. Hence, it causes an inflammatory reaction that can be felt as a dull ache or muscle cramps. Cysts formed as a result of endometriosis may also put additional pressure on pelvic organs while urinating, passing stool or during intercourse and hence cause pain.

However, endometriosis is not the only cause for pelvic pain. Some of the other causes of pain in the abdomen include:

  • Ovulation
  • Dysmenorrhoea
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease
  • Rupture of an ovarian cyst
  • Fibroids in the uterus
  • Appendicitis
  • Cystitis
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Hernias
  • Muscle and bone problems

Hence, it is necessary to understand and recognise the other symptoms of endometriosis as well. While some women may exhibit no other symptoms, others may experience:

  • Painful intercourse
  • Bleeding between periods
  • Pain while passing stool
  • Infertility
  • Blood in the urine or faeces

If the pain in the pelvic region is accompanied by any of the above symptoms for an extended period of time, you must consult a doctor immediately. Though endometriosis is not a cancerous condition, it can lead to further complications like blockages in the bowel if left untreated. To confirm a diagnosis of this condition, you will usually be advised to undergo laparoscopy.

This is a minor surgical procedure that involves making a small incision in the abdomen through which a telescope-like instrument is passed into the body. This allows the doctors to look inside and identify any patches of endometrium tissue. Once confirmed, your doctor may advise you leave it under observation, give you a course of painkillers or advise hormone replacement therapy or surgery to remove the extra endometrium tissue.

Natural Birth

MBBS, MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Gynae-Laproscopy

Natural Birth


A variety of methods are used during natural childbirth to help the mother. Pain management techniques other than analgesics and epidural analgesia include hydrotherapy, massage, relaxation therapy, hypnosis, breathing exercises, music therapy etc. These days ldr (labour, delivery and recovery) rooms are available in many hospitals for a better experience of the delivery as the husband or any other close relative can be present in these rooms along with the labouring mother throughout labour. The comfort of these rooms along with safe analgesic methods help in increasing the incidence of natural childbirth.

Some myths are attached with labour and the methods used in aiding the mother during labour-
1. Epidural analgesia leads to caesarian sections in most cases.
This belief is still held by some, but recent studies have shown that epidurals do not cause an increase in caesarian sections. In fact this aids in making the labour smoother and by reducing the extreme pain it helps the mother both mentally and physically.
2. Induction of labour always leads to a faster labour.
Some mothers wish for a normal delivery but do not want to wait for natural pains. They want to deliver on the day of their liking. This can be done by induction of labour. But induction of labour does not always work. It works best when the cervix has already begun to soften and dilate. You may go in for your 39 or 40 week appointment hoping for a labour induction only to be told that your cervix is not favourable to be induced
It is also possible to have a failed induction. This means that inspite of giving full dosage of labour inducing drugs you do not get pains at all.
3. Childbirth is best without any medication.
Natural childbirth, with the aid of relaxation exercises and deep breathing in between contractions, offers one option for pain management. But there are situations when labour is much prolonged due to a slight abnormal presentation of the baby’s head, or the uterine contractions are not effective or the mother has got exhausted, here medication will definitely help in aiding the mother to go through the labour and have a normal delivery. Therefore an unmedicated birth is ideal, but a happy, healthy birth is also possible with the use of medicines.
4. Once a caesarian birth always a caesarian birth.
This may or may not be true depending on the reason of your caesarian section. Vaginal births after caesarian are becoming increasingly more common. You will need to discuss with your doctor whether a normal delivery will be possible for you.
8. Next labour will be easier.
This may or may not be true for you. Generally speaking, consequent labours are shorter in duration, but that is not always true. Shorter does not always mean easier. This time your baby could be bigger than your first or the baby’s head could be in a slightly abnormal position leading to a longer labour which could be even longer and more difficult than the previous one. Also if there is a long gap of many many years in between the pregnancies then it may be like the first labour.
All said, always think positive, labour is a wonderful experience. The pain just vanishes on seeing your baby’s face. Take antenatal classes where you are told about various exercises which will help you go through a smooth labour. Discuss with your doctor about various pain relieving methods during labour. God has made all women brave enough to go through a normal and natural childbirth.

Bleeding During Pregnancy - Know The Best Ways You Can Deal With It!

Bleeding During Pregnancy - Know The Best Ways You Can Deal With It!

Are you experiencing vaginal bleeding during pregnancy? This is known as spotting when the bleeding is light and the color of the blood can vary from red to brown. However, bleeding during pregnancy can occur due to several other factors as well, which can indicate serious conditions.

Serious causes of bleeding during pregnancy

  1. Bleeding during early pregnancy may indicate miscarriage or an ectopic pregnancy. Abdominal pain and cramps are likely to be experienced in both the cases.
  2. Early miscarriage occurs when your baby is not developing normally, making bleeding heavy. Some women experience early miscarriage even before knowing about their pregnancy. When the bleeding signifies a miscarriage, tummy cramps are common and the bleeding is subjected to becoming abnormally heavy.
  3. An ectopic pregnancy occurs when the fertilized egg implants itself outside your uterus. Dark, continuous bleeding with a watery appearance is likely in case of this condition. An ectopic pregnancy can cause severe complications and should be removed.
  4. Molar pregnancy is another condition in which vaginal bleeding during pregnancy is likely to occur. It is not very common, but should be removed immediately. It occurs when the embryo does not develop properly, but some placenta-forming cells continue to grow and multiply.
  5. A blow to your abdomen as a result of a fall or any kind of injury may also cause bleeding during pregnancy.

Dealing with bleeding during pregnancy

  1. It is important for you to call your doctor, midwife, or hospital healthcare professional and let them know, even if the bleeding stops. You may need to visit the hospital for undertaking examinations and tests.
  2. A gentle examination of the insides of your vagina is carried out. You may also be recommended to undertake an ultrasound scan. An ultrasound scan is effective in ruling out ectopic pregnancies.
  3. Certain routine tests may also be prescribed by your doctor. Blood tests and urine tests are undertaken for checking out the levels of your pregnancy hormones. A test for finding the rhesus status and blood group is also required.

In case of light vaginal bleeding or spotting during pregnancy, your baby is most likely to be unaffected in any way. A lot of pregnancies carry on and turn out to be successful in spite of bleeding. Such cases of light bleeding commonly stop on their own.

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