Yes bleeding will stop with it but it is little less dose pill. You need proper normal dose pill in the form of ovral or novelon to stop the bleeding. Also ultrasound should be done to find out the cause of bleeding.

Hello, Please get your investigations done like AMH and basal ultrasound scan done. You are likely to have PCOS since you have excess weight and facing difficulties in losing weight as well. Also, you are 39 years old so low ovarian reserve (less number of eggs) becomes obvious. The best option for you is IVF. Please visit our clinic International Fertility centre, a leading IVF clinic in India, located in New Delhi that offers varied fertility treatments and services performed by skilled IVF experts and senior embryologists to help you have a joyful parenthood experience.

My hands and legs are constantly very cold. What's the matter. Is anything to worry about?
Hello. The most effective and natural remedy for keeping your body and in your case hand temperature normal is" tulsi" there are 2 kinds of tulsi leaves we come across one is" ram tulsi" (which is lighter in shade) and the other one is" shyam tulsi" (which is darker in shade) you have to consume 10-15 leaves of" shyam tulsi" which means the leaves with darker shade. Take 10 to 15 leaves of shyam tulsi and grind it into a paste. Boil this paste in 200 ml of water until the water comes down to the level of 100 ml. Consume this water chewing the leave remains daily in 3 installments without break. I guarantee you that you will feel better after some days.

Dear Jagdish, any kind of bleeding in pregnancy is not a happy situation. We wait for heart beat in a fetus till it is 6mm or more or pregnancy is more than 6 weeks. Till that time please follow what your doctor has advised and then go for another scan and then take decision.

Acne - Health Tips
Acne. A common problem with simple solutions
Keep your face clean. Use a mild face wash at least twice a day. Drink lots of water.
People with oily skin avoid oily food, butter, cheese and other dairy products.
Don't rub your face whenever you sweat, dab it.
When acne are present, do not touch them, press them or pick on them, this doesn't help at all. On the contrary, it leaves marks which are difficult to clear.
Avoid rubbing and scrubbing your skin.
These simple tips make the further treatment easy and more effective.

Stomach Pains in Pregnancy at 5 months. Stomach pains in pregnancy are common, especially as your pregnancy progresses. This is usually because the muscles throughout your abdomen are stretching, along with the ligaments in your pelvis. ... All this moving and stretching can cause discomfort. he probable cause? Round ligament pain. Your uterus is getting bigger every day, and the muscles and ligaments supporting it are stretching out to accommodate the changes. That stretching can bring a bit of pain, especially when you change positions, cough or are particularly active. These mild aches and jabs are normal and may persist as your uterus continues to grow. Having Nutritious Diet during Pregnancy Here is how you can make your diet more nutritious during the fifth month of pregnancy. Try to eat as much as fresh fruits and vegetables as possible. They supply essential minerals and vitamins to your body. Pulses and cereals are rich sources of protein which are required for the growth of the baby. Nuts are also rich in protein. Additionally nuts also provide fiber and are rich in antioxidants. Eat high fiber foods as a fiber rich diet can have many benefits for pregnant women. Include fiber rich foods in your diet even if you feel that it lacks taste or variety. Foods to be Avoided during Pregnancy Some food items are considered unsafe for pregnant women. Read on to find about the food items which should avoided during pregnancy. Avoid carbonated drinks and canned foods. Whenever you are having snacks or having meals, avoid foods high in salt such as chips, pickles and olives. You must not smoke or drink. Avoid eating raw and undercooked meat or any kind of seafood as they sometimes contain harmful bacteria. Do not eat raw eggs also. Do not eat too much chocolate as chocolate also contains caffeine which is not good for pregnant

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. First & foremost, I would advise that you visit your doc, in person, for a clinical breast exam first. Your doc, post evaluation, would be able to recommend the steps next, appropriately. In the meanwhile, do have a healthy and balanced diet, preferably Mediterranean, and have an active lifestyle. Do exercise, de-stress and relax on a daily basis. Stay well hydrated too. Should it pain, you may apply an alternating heat and cold treatment for couple of minutes that may alleviate the same. Hope this helps. Do take care, and all the very best.

Hyperhidrosis - Making Summer Miserable

DVDL, MBBS
Dermatologist, Delhi
Hyperhidrosis - Making Summer Miserable

Sweating is a normal function of the body, but some people sweat so much that their clothes are often drenched in sweat. Hyperhidrosis is a condition where the amount of sweat produced by the sweat glands cannot be regulated. It is characterized by excessive sweating commonly seen in the underarms, palms and soles. This disorder can affect a person at any age and if left untreated, can become a lifelong condition. Though this condition is not a serious threat to your health, it can be quite embarrassing and can hamper your lifestyle.

In many cases, there is no obvious trigger for Hyperhidrosis, and it is caused by the malfunctioning of the nervous system. This is known as primary Hyperhidrosis. Sweat is a function which helps the body cool itself. In cases of primary Hyperhidrosis, the brain sends a message to the sweat glands to produce sweat even though the body does not need to be cooled. A genetic mutation may also be the cause for some cases of Hyperhidrosis.

Hyperhidrosis with obvious trigger factors is known as secondary Hyperhidrosis. While primary Hyperhidrosis mostly affects the underarms, groin, palms and soles, secondary Hyperhidrosis can affect all parts of the body. Some of the common triggers for this condition are:

  1. Pregnancy
  2. Menopause
  3. Anxiety
  4. Low blood sugar
  5. Hyperthyroidism
  6. Medication side effects
  7. Alcohol or drug withdrawal
  8. Parkinson's disease

Hyperhidrosis can be challenging to diagnose and treat. Lifestyle changes are the easiest way to address this disorder. Some changes that can help you fight Hyperhidrosis are:

  1. Avoid spicy food and alcohol
  2. Replace deodorants with antiperspirants
  3. Choose cotton fabrics over synthetic fabrics
  4. Wear loose fitting clothes.
  5. Try using armpit shields and wearing absorbent socks.

Anticholinergic or antimuscarinic medicines can also help treat Hyperhidrosis. This keeps the nervous system from activating the sweat glands. Dry mouth, blurred vision, constipation, abdominal cramps and difficulty in passing urine are some of the side effects associated with this medication. Iontophoresis is a more aggressive form of Hyperhidrosis treatment. This involves passing a weak electric current through a wet pad to the affected area to block the sweat glands. It is usually used to treat excessive sweating in the palms and soles.

Botox injections can also help treat Hyperhidrosis by blocking the brain signals to the sweat glands. However this is not a permanent cure and may need to be repeated after a year or so. Endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy or a surgery to remove the sweat glands may also be recommended in extreme cases of Hyperhidrosis. This is usually seen as a permanent solution for excessive sweating, but are relatively new procedures and hence not very common.
