Hello Everyone!

I am Dr. Indira Das, Gynecologist. I am practicing in South Delhi, Near Parahladpur and in Charmwood Village, Faridabad. Today I am going to talk about a very common problem urinary tract infection. What is it? We have to know first about the organs which form urine and pass it out of the body. There are 2 kidneys in each human body and 2 pipes near the uterus which carries urine from the kidney. There is a small pipe which is called urethra which carries the urine outside the body. Most of the urinary infections are bladder infections. If it is not treated properly it can pass infection up to the ureter. Now, what are the symptoms? You may feel pain and burning sensation when you urinate. This is the complaint with which a person comes in. You may feel incomplete urination. Other then that, there may be a fever, backache and body pain as well. Feeling nausea and vomiting.

Your belly may feel heavier and painful as well. Lower backache also occurs and this is exactly where your kidney lies. Now, what are its causes? Germs get inside your urethra. These germs cause infections and lives in your large intestine. They can be carried out into your stool as well. Why women tend to get more bladder infection than men. Because woman has shorter urethra. And urethra is located closer to the rectum and vagina and making it more prone to infection. You are more likely to have urinary infection if you are not having enough fluid. Presence of kidney stone is another problem. Large prostate is a problem in men. How these can be diagnosed? If any of the symptoms you have which I have mentioned, please consult a doctor immediately. Your doctor is going to examine you and will ask you for the sample of the urine. Protein examination is to check the blood or pus in your urine and cultural sensitivity.

What are the drugs can be given in controlling this problem? Specific anti-biotics do kill the germs. But still, you need to take the test. You will be given a sealed bottle. Do not open the bottle until and unless you are ready to give the sample. Close the bottle as soon as possible otherwise, you will be at the risk of contamination. In case the kidney stone is doubted, an ultrasound may be necessary to locate enlarge prostate. An assessment of sugar and diabetes is also necessary. How are they treated? Anti-biotics prescribed by your doctor are also going to cure you definitely. But if you feel better after taking antibiotics for 48 hours, please do not stop it. Because that may give rise to germs and the bugs and other treatments may become extremely difficult. Last but not least, with the medicines, you have to take lots of fluids. The number of times, you will pass the urine, it will be better because it will eventually flush out the germs.

Can re-infection be prevented? Yes, that can be done. Drink plenty of water. Urinate often. Please do not hold it back. Woman need to urinate right after sex. The woman who have stopped menstruating, they have the complaint of dry vagina which may make the suspected for recurrent UTI. Vaginal estrogen cream can help them to get it well. Pay attention to your hygiene. Clean yourself after urinating. Look after yourself and stay healthy. I am Dr. Indira Das, Gynecologist. Feel free to contact and ask for any problem.

Thank You.

Treating Menopause - Easy Steps To A Better Life!

Treating Menopause - Easy Steps To A Better Life!

While menstruation is definite proof that a woman can bear children, menopause is, as the name suggests, a pause in the fact. Meaning that the woman experiences a permanent stop in her periodic cycle and will further be unable to bear children. It is a difficult time for women, apart from dealing with the fact that they will not be able to reproduce further, there also arises a variety of complications. The realisation can hit hard and women often experience depressive episodes and numerous hormonal imbalances. Keeping that in mind, menopause is also different for different individuals and there is no one magic cure for it.

Every individual experiences a series of changes and requires different treatments because there are 3 different types of menopause and all of those require separate attention. That being said, there are a few common symptoms that show up and here are a few ways that you can deal with them:

  1. Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT): This a slightly dicey method for the complications it may or may not carry in its wake but it is quite effective for a lot of people. Basically what this procedure entails is that your body will be supplied with hormones (oestrogen) the production of which has depleted, from the outside in the form of tablets or a gel so as to counter the hormonal imbalances. There are two kinds of HRTs; one is for women who have retained their wombs, it is called “Combined HRT”. The individual is supplied with two kinds of hormones, oestrogen, and progesterone. And the other kind is the “Oestrogen only HRT” which is for women who have had a hysterectomy. This treatment should be strictly observed by your gynaecologist and any discomfort felt should be reported back immediately.
  2. Dealing with hot flushes: This is something all women suffer from as soon as menopause hits or from even before as they are reaching towards it. It is also accompanied by night sweats. To deal with both, it is advised that you wear cotton or similarly light clothes, take cool showers, rest and relax as much as possible, include an exercise regime in your daily life or even yoga, hydrate yourself, and avoid drinking, coffee, and very spicy food items. They may act as triggers.
  3. Treating vaginal discomfort: If you experience vaginal discomfort such as dryness or excessive itching, contact your doctor immediately as you may have to start HRT or lubricants-containing oestrogen. Apart from that, to fend off dryness you could also use vaginal lubricants to soothe the painful sensations.
  4. Treating osteoporosis: Due to the lowered levels of oestrogen in the body, women who have reached menopause are more prone to suffering from weak and brittle bones, also known as osteoporosis. Taking vitamin supplements as well as including different kinds of fruits and vegetables and yogurt in your diet is absolutely essential to combat this along with exercise.

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

What Are The 4 Reasons To Visit Your Gynecologist?

What Are The 4 Reasons To Visit Your Gynecologist?

There is this general idea regarding gynecologists that one just needs to consult them when you are pregnant. Other than pregnancy, most women need the help of a gynaecologist, general specialist or a family doctor for managing certain womanly issues. Gynaecological problems are of various kinds and are not just limited to pregnancy or postpartum health conditions.

A point by point discussion, carrying out the required tests alongside the right treatment are done by your gynaecologist. It can assess your health status and make it better.

Here are some reasons to visit a gynecologist:

1. Menstrual irregularity: In case of menstrual irregularity, you should visit your gynaecologist quickly. Abnormal bleeding from the uterus may indicate many a disease such as fibroids, ovarian cysts, endometriosis, pelvic infection or the presence of polyps in the uterus.
Visit a gynecologist when:

  1. Your periods are irregular and far away.
  2. You have repetitive periods, which return in a range of 21 days or less.
  3. There is bleeding in between the periods.
  4. Your periods keep going over 7 days
  5. You have exceptionally postponed periods
  6. Your periods are unnaturally heavy.
  7. You miss your periods.
  8. Abnormal cases of menstrual bleeding.

2. Vaginal problems: Problems in the vagina may lead to infection in the urinary tract. A gynaecologist should be consulted who would prescribe OTC medicines. In case of problems in the vagina, a gynaecologist should be consulted when:

  1. The frequency of your urine increase abnormally without any specific reason.
  2. There is pain or burning sensation during urination.
  3. Urine is accompanied with blood.
  4. There is an abnormal discharge coming out from your vagina.
  5. You have itching sensation in your vagina.

3. Problems with the breasts: Any kind of problem in the breasts needs the attention of a gynaecologist. In case of breast issues, you should visit a doctor when

  1. A certain amount of discomfort is experienced in the breasts during periods.
  2. A lump is felt in the breasts.
  3. Discharge material comes out from the breasts.

4. Pain in lower abdomen: An abdominal pain can cause tumors, fibroids or even ovarian cysts in women. On the off chance that you encounter insufferable abdominal pain alongside menstrual irregularity, discuss the signs and side effects with your gynaecologist. Visit the doctor when:

  1. Pelvic pain is experienced occasionally along with great discomfort.
  2. Menstrual cramps occur.
  3. Pain in lower abdomen occurs after having sex.
  4. A lump develops in the abdomen accompanied by pain.

Pregnancy is not the only reason for visiting a gynaecologist as a gynaecologist looks after many other issues in women. 

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

Urinary Tract Infection - How Constipation Can Lead To It?

Urinary Tract Infection - How Constipation Can Lead To It?

UTI is an infection that occurs in the urinary tract. It is more common in males than in females and it occurs in both the sexes contrary to popular belief. It usually is the work of a bacterium known as E.coli (Escherichia coli) although other bacterium and fungi may also be responsible for the same, very rarely do they actually cause it. UTI is not a sexually transmitted disease (STD) but it can pose a risk factor during sexual intercourse. So you need to be careful.

Since UTI is caused by a bacteria you can catch it from a number of sources. People who live in unhygienic conditions, lower income groups and the like are more prone to contracting UTI. UTI can cause a number of complications depending on the kind of infection you contract. It can affect the kidneys, which is the upper urinary tract, resulting in pyelonephritis as well as the bladder, the lower urinary tract resulting in cystitis. The simplest of UTI can be handled using a range of antibiotics but it can get further aggravated at which point it needs to be treated with intravenous antibiotics. There is a fair chance of mortality stemming from this disease and the lack of awareness about how it is caused does not help either. Thus, here is a quick guide to the causes of UTI that you can and should keep an eye out for:

  1. Constipation: Constipation makes it very easy for bacteria cultures to develop in your bladder. Since you cannot empty your body of the toxins as it does when you defecate, there is enough time and place for the bacteria to multiply and cause UTI. On the other hand, diarrhoea or faecal incontinence increase your chances of contracting UTI as the bacterium from the stool can stay stuck to your vagina and urethra. Be careful to wash up well after a bowel movement.
  2. Dehydration: Water helps in eliminating the body harmful toxins from the body that might cause infections and such. If you do not drink enough water and stay hydrated then your body becomes a breeding ground for bacteria that can cause UTI. Not drinking enough water can also lead to kidney stones which in turn stop your urine flow and nurture bacteria growth.
  3. Birth control and feminine hygiene products: The use of contraception and feminine hygiene products during menstruation like tampons and sanitary napkins can lead to UTI if not carefully monitored. Frequently changing your birth control is not advised as it can cause hormonal changes and affect the normal bacteria in your vagina. On the other hand, change your tampons as frequently as possible so as not to harbour bacteria growth.

STD Testing - 5 Reasons Why You Should Never Delay It

STD Testing - 5 Reasons Why You Should Never Delay It

STD or sexually transmitted disease is usually an infection which spreads from one person to another during sexual contact. Some STDs can also be transferred through touch, since they spread by skin contact. People hardly like to talk or discuss STDs, but it is very important to rule out the possibilities of STD. Whether one likes it or not, if STD testing is ignored, then it can lead to long term consequences.

Why STD Testing is Important?
Often STDs have no signs and symptoms, and the only way to know that are you suffering from a STD is to get tested for it. So it is a good idea to get yourself tested, as you never know if you might have a STD even though you don't show symptoms. Also, when STDs are diagnosed, most of them can be cured.

Consequences of Not Getting Tested
If one has STD and is not getting tested for the same, then it could lead to health problems which can cause permanent damages or might prove to be fatal. Some of the problems are:

  1. Undiagnosed and untreated STDs can lead to damaged reproductive system leading to sterile men and women. 
  2. Chlamydia, if untreated can lead to epididymitis and shrinkage of testicles and infertility in men. It also leads to pelvic inflammatory disease. But good news is, it can be treated easily.
  3. Syphillis can make a person blind and deaf, and can also be passed on to babies. 
  4. Gonorrhea which can also be treated easily with antibiotics, can lead to infertility or death if untreated. 
  5. Even HIV/AIDS if diagnosed in early stages, can enable the patient to lead a normal life and does not mean only death, contrary to conventional perceptions.  

     

Symptoms of STD
While, gonorrhea, chlamydia and human papilloma virus ((HPV)) have no symptoms, the common symptoms of STDs might vary. 

  1. Women, the common symptoms are pain and burning sensation during urination, bloody and abnormal vaginal discharge, abdominal pain, blisters, warts, and swollen glands. 
  2. Men often experience inflammation of the testicles, prostate, sores, fever, urethral discharge and pain during urination.

If these symptoms are observed, it is vital to get tested for STDs. Also, the best way to protect your partner is not to practice unsafe sex and to refrain from the same until diagnosed and treatment is complete. Getting yourself tested for STD is also beneficial, as it can prevent complications like cancers and infertility.

The standard STD panel of tests consists of Herpes IgG antibody and HIV antibody blood tests, along with a blood test for syphilis antibody and DNA urine test for gonorrhea and Chlamydia. For more information, make an appointment with us. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.

I am 28 years now.In 2012 before marriage through Laparoscopy ovarian cyst is operated. My right ovary is removed.In 2014 I gave birth to Baby girl. Heard from the people that your right ovary is removed so you have no chances of Baby boy in your life .I want to clear my doubt regarding this is it true? Also want to know any chances of cyst to the left ovary in the future. If yes please give me some precautions and food habits.

Sex of a baby does not depend on ovulation from right / left ovary, it depends on the sperm whether it is carrying y or x chromosome while fertilising the egg. Weight control, lifestyle matters in keeping cysts in control. Pregnancy is possible
