Vomitting with blood has to be dealt with by a general surgeon by a upper giscopy and get an ultrasound abdomen done to rule out any pathology.

Breast Lumps - How Can They Be Treated?

Breast Lumps - How Can They Be Treated?

A breast lump is an enlargement, swell, protuberance or a bump that is different than the breast tissue surrounding it. Breast lumps can appear in men as well as women and they can be benign or malignant. Causes of benign breast lumps are as follows:

  1. Fibroadenosis: Also known as Fibro-cystic breast disease, it is a benign condition that affects the breast. It may affect either of the breasts or both. One of the major symptoms of Fibroadenosis is a breast lump. Usually, the lumpiness disappears after the menstrual cycle is over. Fibroadenosis occurs because the breast tissue doesn’t respond well to the hormonal changes during the menstrual cycle.
  2. Fibroadenomas: Fibroadenomas occur because of abnormal response to the hormone oestrogen. The lumps are usually well formed and round, around the milk ducts of the breast. Breast lumps due to Fibroadenomas are called breast mice, because they move around the breast. In some cases, they disappear and in some, they tend enlarge during pregnancy.

Other benign causes of breast lumps are breast abscesses, breast cysts, lipoma (lump of fat), mastitis (infection in the breast tissues), fat necrosis (another name for breast lumps) and intraductal papilloma (benign tumour of the milk ducts in the breast). A breast lump that is firm, well defined and doesn’t move around, i.e. it doesn’t disappear after your period or pregnancy, may be a result of breast cancer.

Treatment of breast lumps
The treatment of a breast lump depends on its cause. Benign breast lumps usually disappear over time. Otherwise following treatments can be considered as per the doctor’s discretion-

  1. Medication: If the breast lumps are painful or increase over time, it is advisable to take medication.
    • Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and other painkillers like paracetamol
    • Danazol, Tamoxifen or Bromocriptine are administered to treat breast pain as well
    • Antibiotics which are administered to cure breast abscesses that are caused due bacterial infections
  2. Limiting the amount of fat in the diet or wearing well fitting bras also reduces the amount of pain due to breast lumps.
  3. Certain types of breast lumps are filled with fluid or pus. This fluid can be drained through a procedure called aspiration or drainage.
  4. A radical way to treat a breast lump is surgery. Many a times, these lumps get bigger and painful and the most effective way to deal with it is to remove it. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

Menstrual Cycle in hindi - मासिक धर्म क्या है ?

Menstrual Cycle in hindi - मासिक धर्म क्या है ?

अक्सर हमेशा हंसने खेलने वाली चंचल लड़कियां भी महीने के कुछ दिन दबी दबी दुखी सी शर्माती खुदको छिपाती नजर आती हैं। और इसी वक़्त पर हम गौर करें तो पाएंगे कि घर परिवार के कुछ लोग भी उससे कटे कटे रहते हैं कई चीजों को छूने कई जगह जाने पर पर भी मनाही होती है। जी हां बिलकुल सही समझें आप हम बात कर रहे हैं पीरियड्स की। यह केवल महिलाओं ही नही पुरुषों या यूँ कहें मानव वृद्धि के लिए सबसे अहम घटना है। तो चलिए आज हम जानते हैं पीरियड्स क्या हक़ क्यों आता है इसका सही समय, महत्व आदि। 
पीरियड्स या मासिक धर्म स्त्रियों को हर महीने योनि से होने वाला लाल रंग के स्राव को कहते है। पीरियड्स के विषय में लड़कियों को पूरी जानकारी नहीं होने पर उन्हें बहुत दुविधा का सामना करना पड़ता है। पहली बार पीरियड्स होने पर जानकारी के अभाव में लड़कियां बहुत डर जाती है। उन्हें बहुत शर्म महसूस होती है और अपराध बोध से ग्रस्त हो जाती है। 

पीरियड्स को रजोधर्म भी कहते है। ये शारीरिक प्रक्रिया सभी क्रियाओं से अधिक महवपूर्ण है, क्योकि इसी प्रक्रिया से ही मनुष्य का ये संसार चलता है। मानव की उत्पत्ति इसके बिना नहीं हो सकती। प्रकृति ने स्त्रियों को गर्भाशय ओवरी फेलोपियन ट्यूब, और वजाइना देकर उसे सन्तान उत्पन्न करने का अहम क्षमता दिया है। इसलिए पीरियड्स या मासिक धर्म गर्व की बात होनी चाहिए ना कि शर्म की या हीनता की। सिर्फ इसे समझना और संभालना आना जरुरी है। इस प्रक्रिया से घबराने या कुछ गलत या गन्दा होने की हीन भावना महसूस करने की बिल्कुल आवश्यकता नहीं है। पीरियड्स मासिक धर्म को एक सामान्य शारीरिक गतिविधि ही समझना चाहिए जैसे उबासी आती है या छींक आती है। भूख, प्यास लगती है या सू-सू पोटी आती है।

मासिक चक्र

  • दो पीरियड्सके बीच का नियमित समय मासिक चक्र ( Menstruation Cycle ) कहलाता है। नियमित समय पर पीरियड्स( Menses ) होने का मतलब है कि शरीर के सभी प्रजनन अंग स्वस्थ है और अच्छा काम कर रहे है। मासिक चक्र की वजह से ऐसे हार्मोन बनते है जो शरीर को स्वस्थ रखते है। हर महीने ये हार्मोन शरीर को गर्भ धारण के लिए तैयार कर देते है।
  • मासिक चक्र के दिन की गिनती पीरियड्सशुरू होने के पहले दिन से अगली पीरियड्सशुरू होने के पहले दिन तक की जाती है। लड़कियों में मासिक चक्र 21 दिन से 45 दिन तक का हो सकता है। महिलाओं को मासिक चक्र 21 दिन से 35 दिन तक का हो सकता है। सामान्य तौर पर मासिक चक्र 28 दिन का होता है।

मासिक चक्र के समय शरीर में परिवर्तन 

1. हार्मोन्स में परिवर्तन
 मासिक चक्र के शुरू के दिनों में एस्ट्रोजन नामक हार्मोन बढ़ना शरू होता है। ये हार्मोन शरीर को स्वस्थ रखता है विशेषकर ये हड्डियों को मजबूत बनाता है। साथ ही इस हार्मोन के कारण गर्भाशय की अंदरूनी दीवार पर रक्त और टिशूज़ की एक मखमली परत बनती है ताकि वहाँ भ्रूण पोषण पाकर तेजी से विकसित हो सके। ये परत रक्त और टिशू से बनी होती है।
2. ओव्यूलेशन 
संतान उत्पन्न होने के क्रम में किसी एक ओवरी में से एक विकसित अंडा डिंब निकल कर फेलोपीयन ट्यूब में पहुँचता है। इसे ओव्यूलेशन कहते है। आमतौर पर ये मासिक चक्र के 14 वें दिन होता है । कुछ कारणों से थोड़ा आगे पीछे हो सकता है। 
ओव्यूलेशन के समय कुछ हार्मोन जैसे एस्ट्रोजन आदि अधिकतम स्तर पर पहुँच जाते है। इसकी वजह से जननांगों के आस पास ब्लड सर्कुलेशन बढ़ जाता है। योनि के स्राव में परिवर्तन हो जाता है। जिसके कारण महिलाओं की सेक्सुअल डिजायर बढ़ जाती हैं। इसलिए इस ड्यूरेशन में सेक्स करने पर प्रेग्नेंट होने के चन्वेस बढ़ जाते हैं।
3. अंडा 
फेलोपियन ट्यूब में अगर अंडा शुक्राणु द्वारा निषेचित हो जाता है तो भ्रूण का विकास क्रम शुरू हो जाता है। अदरवाइज 12 घंटे बाद अंडा खराब हो जाता है। अंडे के खराब होने पर एस्ट्रोजन हार्मोन का लेवल कम हो जाता है। गर्भाशय की ब्लड व टिशू की परत की जरुरत ख़त्म हो जाती है। और ऐसे में यही परत नष्ट होकर योनि मार्ग से बाहर निकल जाती है। इसे ही पीरियड्स, मेंस्ट्रुल साइकिल, महीना आना या रजोधर्म भी कहा जाता है। और इस दौर से गुजऱने वाली स्त्री को रजस्वला कहा जाता है।
4. ब्लीडिंग
पीरियड्स के समय अक्सर यह मन में यह मन में यह सवाल आता है की ब्लीडिंग कितने दिन तक होना चाहिए और कितनी मात्रा में होना चाहिए कि जिसे सामान्य मानें। पीरियड यानि MC के समय निकलने वाला स्राव सिर्फ रक्त नहीं होता है। इसमें नष्ट हो चुके टिशू भी होते है। अतः ये सोचकर की इतना सारा रक्त शरीर से निकल गया, फिक्र नहीं करनी चाहिए। इसमें ब्लड की क्वांटिटी करीब 50 ml ही होती है। नैचुरली पीरियड्स तीन से छः दिन तक होता है। तथा स्राव की मात्रा भी अलग अलग हो सकती है। यदि स्राव इससे ज्यादा दिन तक चले तो डॉक्टर से सम्पर्क करना चाहिए।

पीरियड्स से पहले के लक्षण
लड़कियों को शुरू में अनियमित पीरियड्स, ज्यादा या कम दिनों तक पीरियड, कम या ज्यादा मात्रा में स्राव, डिप्रेशन आदि हो सकते है। इसके अलावा पीएमएस यानि पीरियड्स होने से पहले के लक्षण नजर आने लगते है। अलग अलग स्त्रियों को पीएमएस के अलग लक्षण हो सकते है। इस समय पैर, पीठ और अँगुलियों में सूजन या दर्द हो सकता है। स्तनों में भारीपन, दर्द या गांठें महसूस हो सकती है। सिरदर्द, माइग्रेन, कम या ज्यादा भूख, मुँहासे, त्वचा पर दाग धब्बे, आदि हो सकते है। इस तरह के लक्षण पीरियड शुरू हो जाने के बाद अपने आप ठीक हो जाते है। इसलिए उन दिनों में अपने आपको सहारा डैम और मजबूत बनें।

पीरियड्स आने की उम्र 
आमतौर पर लड़कियों में पीरियड्स 11 से 14 साल की उम्र में शुरू हो जाती है। लेकिन अगर थोड़ा देर या जल्दी आजाए तो चिंता न करें। पीरियड्सशुरू होने का मतलब होता है की लड़की माँ बन सकती है। शुरुआत में पीरियड्सऔर ओव्यूलेशन
के समय में अंतर हो सकता है। यानि हो सकता है की पीरियड्सशुरू नहीं हो लेकिन ओव्यूलेशन शुरू हो चुका हो। ऐसे में गर्भ धारण हो सकता है। और इसका उल्टा भी संभव है। यह बहुत महत्त्वपूर्ण है कि पीरियड्स शुरू नहीं होने पर भी प्रेगनेंट होना संभव है इसलिए सावधानी बरतें।

पहले ही किशोरियों को समझाएं 
लड़कियों में शारीरिक परिवर्तन दिखने पर या लगभग 10 -11 साल की उम्र में मासिक धर्म के बारे में जानकारी देकर इसे कैसे मैनेज करना है समझा देना चाहिए। जिससे वे शरीर में होने वाली इस सामान्य प्रक्रिया के लिए मानसिक रूप से भी तैयार हो जाएँ। साथ ही आप लोगों को भी यह समझने की जरूरत है कि पीरियड्स मवं में अपवित्रता जैसा कुछ नहीं है। ये एक सामान्य शारीरिक क्रिया है जो एक जिम्मेदारी का अहसास कराती है। इसकी वजह से लड़कियों पर आने जाने या खेलने कूदने पर पाबन्दी नहीं लगानी चाहिए। पर ध्यान रहे बच्चियों को गर्भ धारण करने की सम्भावना के बारे में जरूर समझाना चाहिए जिससे वे सतर्क रहें। 

पीरियड्स आने पर 
सभी महिलाएं पीरियड्स की डेट जरूर याद रखें जिससे आप पहले ही तैयार रहें। 
इस दौरान खुदको किसी चीज़ से न रोकें नहीं। सामान्य जीवन शैली ही जिएं। बस अगर मौका मिले तो थोड़ा आराम करें।

We can't predict anything. I pill does delay period as it is a hormonal pill. But you should remember it is not 100% effective. Wait for 3-4 more days. If you don't get your periods do a serum bhcg. If that is negative you can take tablets to get bleeding.

Pregnancy can occur only one day of cycle that is ovulation day which is 14 th day in a woman having regular 28 days cycle. Unprotected sex around that day only is important for conceiving. As only one day in month, nature should be given 12-24 trials before you need any active management by Gynecologist or infertility specialist.

There are no chances in getting HIV during oral sex if there are no bleeding cuts on mouth or penis. There are chances of getting STD infection during oral sex so prefer to use condom during oral sex.

Picking Your Nose Secretly - Can It Be Harmful for Your Body?

MBBS, MD - General Medicine, FCCS,USA, DIPLOMA IN HOSPITAL MANAGEMENT, POST GRADUATE DIPLOMA IN JOURNALISM AND MASS COMMUNICATION
Sexologist, Jaipur
Picking Your Nose Secretly - Can It Be Harmful for Your Body?

Do you have a habit of secretly picking your nose? This is a very common bad habit, which many people carry out, in spite of it being a habit which is frowned upon. There is a certain amusement that people seem to enjoy about picking the nose. However, on top of being a very unhealthy and unhygienic habit, it is harmful for the body as well.

Why should you stop picking your nose?

Picking your nose is quite dangerous for your body. Your fingers contain many harmful germs, which are transmitted into your nostrils when you are digging into your nose. A specific germ known as Staphylococcus aureus can live in the front part of your nose. Combining the habit of nose picking along with the germs, may lead to the development of abrasions. These abrasions can bleed and promote more germs. As a result, the crust and irritation increase the more you keep on picking your nose. Based on where you are and what you have touched with your hands, some seriously dangerous germs may enter your body, causing health hazards and complications.

Children are notorious by nature and it is very common among children to pick their nose resulting in nose bleeding. The blood supply to the nose is quite vigorous in nature and there are five arteries that reach to the front part of the nose or Kisselbach’s plexus. When an abrasion takes place, there are chances of severe bleedings, due to damage to these fragile arteries.

Other reasons

  1. Picking your nose may lead to the development of pimples in the nose hair follicles.

  2. In case a small pimple in the nose develops into a boil, the infection may travel to the brain through your bloodstream.

  3. In case you are suffering from cold and your sinus is blocked, picking your nose may lead to the development of sinusitis. This happens because of the introduction of various bacteria present beneath your fingernails into the nose. They may proceed to the sinus cavity from your nose. Due to insufficient drainage, the bacteria will multiply and cause a sinus infection.

  4. Picking your nose on a regular basis makes your nose a breeding group of dangerous germs. If you do not wash your hands after picking your nose, these germs may be transmitted to others.

If you feel some irritation in your nose or feel a constant stuffiness, you should use a tissue paper to soothe your nostrils. Avoid using your fingers for picking and if the irritation lasts even after cleaning it, you should consult a doctor.

5 Ways to Decrease The Chance of Breast Cancer

Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (MRCOG)
Gynaecologist, Alwar
5 Ways to Decrease The Chance of Breast Cancer

While you cannot cure breast diseases, family history and maturing, but there are some hazards or risks that you can control. Keeping in mind the fact that there is no certain approach to forestall breast cancer, there are things you can do that may bring down the hazard. Here are five approaches to ensure your breast's well-being:

  1. Watch your weight: Being overweight or hefty expands breast cancer chances. This is particularly true after menopause and for women who have put on weight as grown-ups. After menopause, the vast majority of your estrogen originates from fat tissue. Having more fat tissue can heighten your chances of getting breast cancer by raising the estrogen levels. Additionally, women who are overweight have a tendency to have more elevated amounts of insulin, than other hormones. Higher insulin levels have been associated with a few tumors, including breast cancer.
  2. Exercise routinely: Many reviews have found that exercise is the sign of having a healthy breast. Studies show that one to two hours of energetic walking each week, lessened a woman’s cancer risk by eighteen percent. Walking ten hours seven days decreased the hazard all the more.
  3. Constrain liquor: Women who have two to five mixed beverages every day have a higher danger of breast cancer than women who have just one drink a day or none . As much as three to six glasses of wine seven days have been found to somewhat increase breast cancer chances. It is not clear how or why liquor raises the hazard. In any case, constraining liquor is particularly essential for women who have other hazard variables for breast cancer, like, breast cancer running in their families.
  4. Restrain time spent sitting: Research has shown that sitting time, regardless of how much exercise you get when you are not sitting, increases the probability of growing cancer, particularly for women. Women who sit six hours or more a day outside of work have a ten percent more serious risk for breast cancer compared to the ladies who sit under three hours a day, and an increased hazard for other cancer types as well.
  5. Stay away from or confine hormone substitution treatment: Hormone Replacement Treatment (HRT) was utilized frequently in the past to control night sweats, hot flashes, and other troublesome manifestations of menopause. In any case, specialists now realize that postmenopausal ladies who take a blend of estrogen and progestin might probably create breast tumors or cancer. Breast cancer disease seems to come back within five years in the wake of ceasing the blend of hormones. Therefore, get a breast cancer test even if you feel a small lump. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

STDs - Why Timely Examination Is Important?

Gynaecologist, Mumbai
STDs - Why Timely Examination Is Important?

An 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 about 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 an 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 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. Syphilis 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. In women, the common symptoms are pain and burning sensation during urination, blood in vaginal discharge as also 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 against 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. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.
