Of course riskful. You have to normalize tsh before pregnancy. The risks can be to you (high bp, bleeding, depression etc) or serious to baby (abortion, small growth, early delivery, mental retardation etc)

The Unwanted Hair Growth- Hirsutism

Partners in Health
Multi Speciality, Gurgaon
The Unwanted Hair Growth- Hirsutism

Hirsutism is a condition of unwanted hair growth in certain areas of a women's face and body, such as upper lip, beard area, chest and abdomen, that creates a "male pattern" of hair growth. It affects around 5-10% of the women and is a common presenting complaint among females for cosmetic reasons.

Hirsutism is attributed either to increased production or increased sensitivity of the hair follicles to the male hormone- testosterone. Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), which causes irregular menstrual cycles, is the main cause of the same. However in some cases the reasons for the same can be unknown as all reports may seem normal. Such a type is called Idiopathic Hirsutism. It is important for women to not feel shy and embarrassed about the situation.  Often resorting to excessive bleaching and razers can harm the skin and the self image of a woman. You should come forward and talk to either a Gyneacologist or an Endocrinologist. The doctors after taking the complete history would advice certain tests that would measure the amount of certain hormones in the blood. If the androgen levels are elevated, doctor may recommend an ultrasound or a CT scan to check ovaries and adrenal glands for tumors or cysts.

The main causes of Hirsutism are:

  • Polycystic Ovary Syndrome: In 70% of the cases PCOS is the cause of Hirsutism. Women with PCOS often have hirsutism in combination with acne, balding near the front of the head, and menstrual irregularities. PCOS is also accompanied by infertility (due to menstrual irregularity), obesity, diabetes , High cholesterol and possible heart disease.
  • Idiopathic Hirsutism: Idiopathic hirsutism refers to hirsutism that has no identifiable cause. It is usually a mild variation of PCOS. A gradual increased growth of coarse body hair is typically the only symptom in women with this condition. Menstrual cycles are normal in women with idiopathic hirsutism.
  • Drug Induced: Certain drugs and steroids taken the past can trigger a hormonal imbalance and cause hirsutism
  • Adrenal or tumour causes: These are rare and are related to tumours or abnormal functioning of the adrenal gland.

Since Hirsutism can be a combination of medical issues self medication is not recommended. There are a variety of ways through which the same can be managed or cured. The treatment options are:

  • Medical Management: The doctors can recommend a combination of drugs such as oral contraceptives (contain estrogen & progestin that inhibits the male hormone), anti-androgens and insulin sensitive drugs.
  • Cosmetic Hair Removal: Electrolysis and the modern day safe Laser therapy are sought after cosmetic ways for removal of unwanted hair. The procedures destroy the hair follicles and prevent the hair from growing.
  • Surgical Therapy: Only in specific cases Laparoscopic ovarian drilling or removal of ovarian & adrenal tumours can help treat Hirsutism.

It is important to understand that this problem is medical and can be treated, managed and cured with expert advice & guidance. Women usually get depressed and have image issues. One should not get distressed; it may be a possibility that the reason may be just a little imbalance in your hormones. Eating healthy, weight loss and exercise are tried and tested natural ways to keep your body fit & balanced.

Hi lybrate-user. There was no need for I pill when her periods had ended just today. Casual and frequent use of I pill can harm her hormonal imbalance and alter her next 2-3 cycles. Please avoid such casual use of I pill without medical supervision. Please understand that they are hormone containing pills which have side effects. 3 days before and after a period are absolutely safe and there is no risk of pregnancy anyways. There was no need of the I pill.

Hiv spreads through contact with bodily secretions of an hiv infected person. Try to find the hiv status of the girl and if not possible then go for a hiv test 4-6 weeks after the episode.

Do not worry! the cycle is disturbed due to contraceptive pill, which is nothing but synthetic hormone. You would not have conceived. Even still if you wish to get rid of your doubts, get a prega-news or a similar kind of a self test pregnancy kit/(available at pharmacy/medical store).

How Does Age And Lifestyle Affect Fertility?

MBBS, DGO, MD, Fellowship in Gynae Oncology
Gynaecologist, Delhi
How Does Age And Lifestyle Affect Fertility?

While you are too busy running a rat-race, chasing education, career, and everything extravagant and lavish, you might be slowly slipping away on your chances of parenting a baby. Find that strange and wayward? Well, your fertility might have already started taking a dip. The chances of conception drop down to less than 10% as a woman approaches the mid-thirties and a man, mid-forties. This is because increasing age takes a toll on the quality and the quantity of eggs produced. Chromosomal problems accompanied by risk of miscarriages tend to bring down pregnancy rates. So much so, that a child, born to older parents, might have higher risks of suffering from learning difficulties, psychological disorders and even autism. Not only age, but one’s innate lifestyle habits and practices can also be a few reasons behind infertility.

  1. Age and Fertility: Women’s fertility starts to decline when women are in their early 30s (and the decline speeds up post-35). Men’s fertility starts to decline at 45 years of age. As well as declining fertility, there is an increased risk of pregnancy complications for older mothers and and with older fathers, an increased risk of the child having autism spectrum disorders, mental health disorders and learning difficulties.

  2. Weight and Fertility: Obesity, owing to a sedentary lifestyle and an unhealthy diet, can cause and aggravate hormonal irregularities in both the genders. For men, these imbalances result in coital problems and dip in the sperm count, while for women, they pose threats such as miscarriages, risks of a still-born child and other pregnancy complications. Women who are obese and smoke are more than twice as likely as healthy weight women to have a baby with congenital heart disease.

  3. Substance Abuse: Smoking and excessive consumption of alcohol cause early menopause in women and reduce fertility rates in both the genders.

  4. The Appropriate Timing: If you fail to keep a track of the most fertile period of your menstrual cycle based on the days you ovulate, you might miss out on a good chance of getting pregnant. Pregnancy is technically possible during the five days before ovulation and the day of ovulation. The likelihood of actually becoming pregnant, though, is dramatically increased if you have intercourse in the three days leading up to and including ovulation.

  5. Stress: In today’s times, some amount of stress is unavoidable. However, being subject to constantly high levels of stress on a daily basis ups the secretion of the stress hormone, ‘cortisol’; that eventually takes a toll on one’s libido, thus wreaking havoc on one’s chances and aspirations of parenting a child. Also, what too much stress does is that it mars personal relationships, thus further increasing one’s woes.

  6. Pollutants: With rapid urbanization and unchecked industrialization, the world you live in was never more polluted than now. Such increased and consistent exposure to pollution makes one all the more vulnerable to infertility.

In 1 month of regular trying chance of pregnancy is only 15%. So do not lose heart. Try for 6 months. If no success, consult doctor to see if there is any problem in husband or wife and treat it.

If this is first time wait for next couple of cycles but if it has happened second or more time meet Gynaecologist. This advise is for unmarried sexually non active person. For someone sexually active better to meet Gynaecologist now.

In the womb, a baby’s brain develops from neurons moving outward from early precursor cells. After the neurons move, they grow extensive dendrites (the input part of a neuron) and axons (the neuron’s outputs). These early stages are driven by genetic instruction. At birth, a baby has many, many more neurons than it will use as an adult (100 billion!); the baby also has more synapses A baby’s experiences with its parents and its social and physical environment help “prune” and selectively “sculpt” those connections that are being used, resulting in the eventual cell death of up to 50% of cortical neurons. The connections that are used become strengthened and more efficient. Many studies have shown that providing an enriched physical or social environment at this time can subsequently improve learning and memory, encourage exploration, and decrease fearful responses to novelty. It can also reduce the impact of genetic or environmental risk factors. Cells in the brain—called gray matter—develop throughout childhood and adolescence and then decrease in number. The axonal connections—called white matter—develop into adulthood.

She is 100% not pregnant as she had her menses. Menses can come early after the pill treatment. Allso you used double protection with pill and condom both, so she can not be pregnant. Menses may come little irregular this month and next month it will be normal.
