Hello, as she resumed her menses post intercourse pregnancy is ruled out. The flow may be heavy due to increased progestins during sex close to menstrual period. This'll subside slowly and no real need to worry. Weakness due to menorrhagia can be countered by increased water intake.

My period got delayed by 4 days, I am worried checked the pregnancy test kit. It shows negative, Wht to do.

Sometimes menses may get irregular due to hormonal changes, just wait for few days. And if you are still in doubt about pregnency test perform again by taking first few drops of morning urine sample after 5 days.

Hi lybrate-user, I would like to enlighten you about acne/pimples in brief.

What is acne?
Acne is a chronic inflammatory disease of the pilo sebaceous follicles (i. E. Hair with oil producing glands attached to hair) characterized by comedones (blackheads and whiteheads), papules, pustules, nodules and ultimately leading to scars.

Who gets acne?
Close to 100% of people between the ages of twelve and seventeen have at least an occasional whitehead, blackhead or pimple regardless of race or ethnicity. Acne starts between the ages of ten and fifteen years of age and usually lasts till twenty years of age; however, acne can persist into the late twenties or thirties or even beyond. Some people get acne for the first time as adults and this is known as adult acne.

What are the causes of acne?

Bacteria: bacteria that normally live on the skin play a role in acne development. The bacteria are known as propionibacterium acnes (p. Acnes). The bacteria content can increase in people whose faces are not clean.

Hormones: during the teen years increased levels of sex hormones cause the oil glands of the skin to produce increased amount of oil. These excess skin oils tend to bind with cellular debris causing a blockage and producing a fertile environment for the bacteria to grow. The bacteria cause inflammation, pus, swelling and redness. In adult acne, excessive hormones produced due to polycystic ovaries and other hormonal imbalances cause excess oil production and inflammation, which lead to acne.

What are the factors that precipitate or aggravate acne?

Stress- stress is frequently implicated in aggravation of acne while acne itself induces stress.

Sweat- sweating in a hot and humid environment causes deterioration in 15% of acne patients.

Menstruation- pre menstrual flare of acne occurs in 70% of female acne patients.

Friction and pressure- friction and pressure from helmets, backpacks and tight collars can induce blackheads and papules. Pressure from face massages or facials can aggravate acne.

Pregnancy- pregnancy has an unpredictable effect on acne. Pre-existing acne may aggravate or remit during pregnancy.

Diet- high glycemic load foods (sugar loaded and starchy foods), oily foods may aggravate acne.

Drugs- oral contraceptives, anti tuberculosis medication, oral steroids, anti depressants may aggravate acne.

Treatment for acne:
Treatment for acne needs to be individualized as per the type of acne and type of your skin.
For comedones (white and black heads), we recommend comedone extraction procedure.
For red papules (bumps), we recommend topical creams, chemical peels and oral antibiotics as per severity.
For nodules [big red swelling], intralesional steroid injections works fastest and are safe.
For acne scars, there are various procedures like dermaroller[microneedling], subscision, deep chemical peels and lasers.

Total duration of treatment for acne varies from 2 to 4 months for complete cure and for acne scars varies from 8 to 12 months. I recommend you to consult qualified dermatologist to prescribe you correct treatment that suits you the best after examining your skin.

It is not necessary, it may happen sometimes due to some infection, hormonal disturbance, or blockage caused by abortion. The best way to know if you are fertile is to know the clues your body gives: cervical fluid changes, changes in basal body temperature, physical signs like cramping on one side when you ovulate, some even with headaches, or pain in your back, moods like depressed and tired, or energetic and happy or you can use ovulation kit to know your time of ovulation. Generally ovulation occurs after menses are over roughly at day 8 to 18 of cycle if one has regular cycle of 28 days. The chances of conceiving are maximum during ovulation. Women cannot conceive without ovulating. In general, women usually ovulate around 10 to 16 days before the next period cycle start. Ovulation can occur when you experience mid-cycle or ovulatory bleeding. A woman cannot ovulate more than once during each cycle.

First of all you have to confirm first whether she is pregnant or not you can do it by her urine test for pregnancy or ultrasound abdomen and there is no easy home method to terminate pregnancy either it is with meficines or surgically by d& c for which you will have to consult a gynaecologist personally.

Ways of Dealing with Intestinal Distress

Undigested food that lurks around in the digestive tract produces a host of disorders due to intestinal distress. These disorders range from acidity to gastro-oesophageal reflux and even colon diseases like cancer, irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, gallstones, ulcers and Crohn's disease. Cramps, nausea, vomiting, loose motions, gas, and acidity are some of the most common symptoms that visit the patient as a result of such ailments. There are many ways of dealing with such intestinal distress, as follows.

Diet: Introduce plenty of fibre into your diet to aid the digestion process. This can cut the risk of many such ailments and also aid in the treatment of the same. Intestinal distress is largely caused by food that is still lurking around in the digestive tract, so it is important to clean out the digestive system with plenty of fibre and water.

Nutrition for better Digestive System Health: Food that is rich in minerals, vitamins, antioxidants and iron will help in creating a stronger system that cleanses the digestive tract and helps in reducing the production of excess acid in the stomach. A balanced diet with plenty of nutrition aids digestion and makes the immunity stronger.

Study your Triggers: Watch out for foods that can trigger reflux action and other acidity related issues on the intake. These can include fatty food, fried and oily food as well as extremely spicy food. Stress is also a major trigger of intestinal distress, so it would be a good idea to avoid stressful situations or take medical help to deal with them in a better manner.

Medication: Antacids and other medication to prevent the onset and growth of such distress can be sought out after due consultation with a medical practitioner. Medication will help in dealing with and altering the acid level production in the stomach.

Surgery: In very extreme cases like ulcers and large size gallstones, surgery may be helpful so that you avoid rupturing the stomach's lining which can lead to a serious infection or even internal bleeding.

Knowing your triggers and getting into a better routine as far as your diet goes is as important as seeing a doctor about the severity of your case when it comes to intestinal distress.

Ovarian Cancer Screening: What You Can Miss During Gynaecology Check-ups

MD
Gynaecologist
Ask Free Question
As one of the fifth leading cause of cancer deaths for women globally, ovarian cancer is a serious ailment. This type of cancer usually cannot be detected until it has spread considerably and causes significant damage. It affects the ovaries of women who are in their late fifties and upwards. Yet, careful screening and vigilance with the help of regular gynaecology check-ups can help in detecting and treating this potentially fatal disease. Read on to know what you may be missing during those crucial gynaecology check-ups!

Screening tests: whether or not you are risk genetically or due to the environment, your annual gynaecology check-up must include ovarian cancer screening, which will basically try to look for the earliest signs and symptoms by studying the fallopian tubes and other areas for peritoneal screening for ovarian, fallopian and primary peritoneal cancer. The ca 125 blood test can also be used in order to detect this condition.

Ovaries: during the screening and normal check-ups as well, ask your doctor to concentrate on the size, shape and consistency of the ovaries as well as the uterus. A pelvic exam will also be helpful in detecting even the smallest anomalies that can point at the existence of symptoms.

Pap test: it is a well-known fact that women over the age of 25 years and especially those who have been through childbirth even once, must get the pap smear test done on a routine basis so as to rule out ovarian and cervical cancer. While this test may not be able to detect ovarian cancer for many cases, it can detect this kind of cancer in the more advanced stages.

Bloating and fluid build-up: if you are experiencing various symptoms like edema or fluid retention and bloating in the area, then you may want your doctor to put you through a screening test for ovarian cancer screening. Usually, we tend to overlook these symptoms as a part of an infection or even normal menstrual cycle, but the detection of these symptoms must be followed up by proper screening.

Ultrasound wand: an ultrasound wand will be able to detect even the tiniest changes in the ovaries and the surrounding areas with the help of the tvus test which can find a mass in the ovary. This can then be followed up by a biopsy to tell whether or not it is malignant.

Symptoms like too much of vaginal discharge and unusual amount of bleeding during the menstrual cycle should not go unnoticed or unreported and it is best to get a proper ultrasound done, followed by the various types of screening for this kind of cancer.

Dear user we can very well appreciate your concern regarding pregnancy. Please understand that ubiphene and fertomid both have a same constituent i. E clomifene. Clomifene is used to treat infertility in women caused by failure or improper release of eggs from ovary (ovulation). It belongs to a class of medicines known as antiestrogens. It acts by changing the hormonal balance in the body. This stimulates release of eggs from the ovary, and helps in fertilization in females. Regarding your fertility issues we suggest you to meet an infertility specialist so that they can through examine you in person and advise accordingly.
