There is no fixed number of times to have sex to have a baby. Its about the timing of sex that is important. And its not harmful to feed breasts milk.

This can be due to infection so better visit a doctor for examination. Also if periods are missed then get urine pregnancy test done.

Dear Dr. My sister whose age is 27 years, in her head there is a small ball which is soft like a balloon filed with water, but there is no any pain, the ball is minimum 2 to 3 years old, shes body is too slim, please suggest me what to do ?

Dear , the problem of your sister's head needs to be checked by a specialist like a neurologist. Regarding her weight she needs to have a healthy balanced diet - can be in small amounts but in frequent intervals. Take care that she has good proteins in her diet throughout the day - 5-6 small meals. If she is mobile she needs to be active physically - perhaps a good walking routine and some strength training workouts. For further details you may consult me hope this reply was of some help - best wishes.

I am 7 months pregnant and 8 months is going on. I have lower back pain and legs pains. Does it affect my baby? What should I do so that I can get relief?

MPT(Neurology), BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist, Delhi
Back and leg pain are common during pregnacy. It is because of the increasing baby weight and shifting of the line of gravity anteriorly. Avoid sitting for long time, walk around, do ankle pumps, maintain good postures, bend at knees while lifting, sleep in side lying with pillows under your knees, if you have no complication during your pregnancy then you can also do some back exs under the guidance of your doctor

Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding

DGO, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Faridabad
Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding

Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding refers to abnormal vaginal bleeding caused due to an imbalance in hormone levels and hormone signals. The affirmation of such a disorder is attained following the method of elimination. Ruling out factors leading to vaginal bleeding helps confirm the condition of Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding. A proficient medical practitioner or a gynecologist so to say, will check if the bleeding is caused during pregnancy or due to a miscarriage, if there is a bacterial infection in the vagina or uterus and if bleeding is the result of a disease like cancer or a disorder like development of fibroids. When all these doubts are answered in negative, you know you are suffering from anovulatory bleeding; another name for the condition in concern. Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding is also starkly set against incongruities resulting from systemic disorders, inflammation of the skin of your cervix and frequent consumption of oral contraceptives.

What triggers Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding:

Doctors say that Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding could possibly be the effect of your ovaries not releasing an egg. The frenzied interaction of hormone signals might make you bleed very heavily during menstruation. Menstrual blood is likely to contain clots. Also, menstruation in this case could either be premature or delayed.

Clinical ways to examine the presence of this disorder in a woman

  1. An ultrasound may be used to detect problems in the pelvic region or in the uterus.
  2. Hysteroscopy gives a detailed and clearer view of the uterus.
  3. Hormone tests such as thyroid function tests are also useful.
  4. Some doctors even make use of Pap smear for diagnosis.
  5. A pregnancy test can identify signs.
  6. Biopsy is used to check for cancer or precancerous cells.

Commonly observed symptoms:

Some of the symptoms of Dysfunctional Uterine Disorder are the same as that resulting from hormonal issues;

  1. Hirsutism or excess hair growth on the face, chest and limbs.
  2. A kind of tenderness felt in and around the vagina.
  3. Sudden outburst and mood swings.

Other symptoms characteristic of an ovulatory bleeding are:

  1. Bleeding or spotting from vagina between two consecutive periods.
  2. Prolonged and disabling periods: Menstruation for some might last for more than eight to ten days.
  3. The duration between periods keeps altering every month.
  4. Heavy blood flow during periods and passage of clots could be worrisome.

Dysfunctional Uterine Bladder needs careful medical assistance and prompt treatment. Delaying the process can make you anemic and severely prone to endometrial cancer.

According to books ovulation time is around 14 th day of cycle but pregnancy can occur during earlier or later parts of the cycle you are under ayurveda get investigation done for brown discharge yes it's possible to have a period ontime despite conception taking place just three days earlier Allopathic medicines have to be correlated with investigation like ultrasound get checked by ultrasound for proof of pregnancy do blood test for pregnancy and urine test for pregnancy get back here with reports for more guidance.

I am taking yasim (birth control pills) as my gynecologist asked me to take them for three months so that my periods get regulated. Every month when the ovulation takes place I get a sharp horrible (8/10) pain in my upper back. What should I do? The pain comes for just one day but it's extremely bad.

Hello, iF you are on birth control pills then ovulation should not take place at all , else you can get easily pregnant and birth control fails. Pain in upper back is not an ovarian pain, its likely tone musculoskeletal so please get yourself examined.

These factors are emotional stress, deficiencies in diet (Iron, B-12, and folic acid), menstrual periods, oral hygiene, allergy to food substances and trauma sites in mouth.It also seems that some have it running in their families.

HOMOEOPATHIC TREATMENT-
Homoeopathic Medicines that are often used for treating apthous ulcerations in mouth are Borax, Acid Sulf, Acid Nitric, Merc Sol and Kali Chloride.
