After c-section delivery what us the maximum time to resume sex with my partner and what is the best method for long term pregnancy free sex.

It is possible to get pregnant even when you are breastfeeding. So it is better to use contraception as soon as possible. Best contraceptive for breastfeeding mothers is copper t. If you do not want to go for that then second best option is minipill like cerazette, which will not affect your breastfeeding. After 6 weeks you can resume sex after cesarean section.

One-third of Cancer Diseases Are Caused by Bad Eating Habits

One-third of Cancer Diseases Are Caused by Bad Eating Habits


People's daily reported that cancer has become the number one threat to human life. It is a common and frequently-occurring disease which seriously endangers the health of people. Cancer experts have pointed out that, besides the genetic factor, cancer is also highly related to the environmental factors, in which diet is one of the most important.

Relevant researches have pointed out that about one-third of the cancer diseases has something to do with the poor eating habits in daily life. With the gradual improvement of the living standards, people tend to eat more refined foods at the meal, while the intake of coarse grains and cereals is reduced. Such modern poor eating habit will lead to a series of cancers, which seriously affect the health of human body.

For example:

  • First, lack of cellulose will increase the incidence of colorectal cancer.
  • Second, excessive intake of high-fat, high-protein foods has become an important reason for the increasing incidence of breast cancer and colorectal cancer.
  • Third, about 75% of the head and neck cancer is caused by drinking alcohol and smoking.
  • Fourth, people who like to eat hard, hot, and pungent foods will easily suffer from esophageal cancer.
  • Fifth, gastric cancer has something to do with too much intake of smoked foods or foods which contain nitrate, such as sausage, ham, pickles, dried salted fish and so on.
  • Sixth, eating mildewed corn, peanut, rice and other foods or drinking unsanitary water will make people susceptible to liver cancer.
  • Seventh, people who prefer to eat sweet and greasy foods are most likely to suffer from pancreatic cancer.
  • Eighth, insufficient intake of vegetables and fruits has something to do with colorectal cancer, gastric cancer, liver cancer, breast cancer and esophageal cancer.

See having periods is itself an indication of absence of pregnancy, just don't worry you are not pregnant.

It's a behaviour problem, can be countered by a strong will power only. No medicines can correct it. Try yoga or meditate when there's an urge to eat anything. Make a diet chart to suit your needs. Stick it on fridge, every time you have an urge to eat, chart will serve as a reminder.

Hello Ana, if in periods time too you have severe pain please try to do USG scan abdomen and pelvis. Pain after sex can be due to physical strain over the parts or it can be due to any type adhesions in internal organs which will be confirmed only by scanning. And please don't withhold your natural urges before ,after or during sex it can also cause pain.

You need to use an effective contraception. Contracetive pills like yasmin/ novelon are easily available in the market and affordable. They are very effective in preventing unwanted pregnancy if used consistently. There are however a few contraindications like active liver disease; migraines, propensity to form blood clots etc; other option is to get a copper or mirena coil fitted. Third option is to use barrier methods like condoms and diaphragms. They have to be used at the time of sex. But the failure rates are slightly higher.

ENT Specialist, Kolkata
When my little girl was 1 year old we travelled to Jaipur by plane.Among many travel worries I was specially thinking about ways to keep her awake and ear pain free while travelling.I knew all the basics but it was still a challenge.So that’s when I decided to write a post for all of you mommies who travel by plane with children.I think when we know why things happen we are much more effective at preventing unwanted events.And prevention of aeroplane ear runs top of my list during air travel.

What you will find here

What is this condition?

Why do your ears get blocked in an Aeroplane?

Who is more likely to get Aeroplane Ear?

What can you do during the flight to prevent blocked ear?

How can you prevent very young children from getting aeroplane ear?

How can you unblock your ears after the Flight?


When should you visit a Doctor?
What is Aeroplane Ear?

Pain in the ear, popping ear, blocked ear during air travel is the most common medical problem faced by flyers. Aeroplane ear is the better known name for Barotitis media or Aerotitis media. Aeroplane ear or Barotitis media is the condition where there occurs damage to the ear due to difficulty in adjustment of the air pressure between Middle ear and External ear

Why do your ears get blocked in an Aeroplane?

I have to go into a bit of physics for a proper explanation. Please excuse the science Lecture! As you know according to Boyle’s Law : The pressure and the volume of an enclosed mass o gas are inversely proportional. When the plane rises in the air, there is a progressive decrease in air/atmospheric pressure. Basically at 18,000 ft above sea level, the air pressure is half that at sea level.During the rise through the atmosphere , as the pressure falls ,a particular mass of air in an elastic structure expands .Similarly during descent, the air contracts and the volume of cash decreases.

So what happens in the ear during Flying?

Imagine your ear is made up of 3 rooms.The outermost part of the ear which connects the entryway with the other rooms is the external ear.This is the part involving your ear canal. The ear drum separates your external ear from the middle ear, where the small bones (malleus, incus, stapes), which help transmit sound live.The ear drum is somewhat flexible and can move with change in volume of air in the middle ear. Two windows oval window (covered by stapes footplate) and round window (covered by round window membrane) connect your middle ear and the inner ear.

The inner ear has your hearing and balance apparatus It’s called the labyrinth. A tube connects your middle ear with the part of your oral cavity behind the nose (nasopharynx) .It’s called the Eustachian tube.Easily the most important structure which helps keep up the normal air volume inside your middle ear. It’s through your Eustachian tube that air enters or exits to equalise air pressure between outside atmosphere and your middle ear.

What happens during Ascent?

Air pressure outside falls. Middle ear pressure falls. Air in your middle ear expands (following Boyle law) This excess air pushes the tympanic membrane outwards to its natural limit.This is normally followed by escape of air through your Eustachian tube. Movement of the ear drum may be restricted due to scarring (previous infection).This may cause ear pain during ascent.

What happens during Descent?

Air pressure outside rises. Middle ear pressure rises. Air in your middle contracts and volume decreases (Boyle law). The ear drum moves inwards. (retraction). The opening of your Eustachian tube must be opened to allow air from the nasopharynx to enter and adjust the volume.The Eustachian tube will open with swallowing movement. If this mechanism fails (if you fall asleep, or have a cold), or is delayed, the increasing pressure difference closes the naspharyngeal end of Eustachian tube.When the pressure difference is more than 90 mm,Hg, your tubal dilator muscles are unable to open the Eustachian tube and it stays locked.The ear then feels blocked.

Barotrauma occurs during flying due to:

1) Very rapid air pressure changes.Sudden ascent/descent. 2) Blocked Eustachian tube.

It may also occur in:

Divers
Hyperbaric oxygen chamber
Decompression and compression chambers


Who is more likely to get Aeroplane Ear?

Anybody who has some nasal or Nasopharyngeal problem which blocks the Eustachian tube.
Acute infection in the nose.
Chronic infection in the nose
Rhinosinusitis
Nasal allergy
Vasomotor Rhinitis
Malformation of nose
Nasopharyngeal tumour.
Sleeping during ascent or descent
Small narrow Eustachian tube; infants toddlers.


How will you know whether you are developing aeroplane ear?

Symptoms ( most common)

Discomfort in the ear
Ear Muffled hearing
Blocked ear/fullness of ear
Severe complaints

Excruciating pain in ear
Severely blocked ear
Ringing, buzzing sound in ear (Tinnitus)
Severe Hearing loss
Spinning sensation (Vertigo)
Bleeding from ear

If you have any of the severe problems.Or if the symptoms persist even after …..hours “check..

What will your doctor See?

An ENT surgeon may do an otoscopic examinations to see your ear drum.

Signs on otoscopy:



Invaginated/retracted ear drum


Congested ear drum


Solitary or multiple blood filled blisters on your ear drum


Haemotympanum


Signs of serous otitis media


Ruptured ear drum, with blood clot.
Otoendoscopy may also be done where you will also be able to see these findings along with your doctor.

Are there any long term complications ?



Rarely the ringing sound in ear or tinnitus may be permanent.


If inner ear barotrauma occurs hearing loss may not improve


What other tests can you do?



Pure tone audiometry; to check your hearing and rule out inner ear barotrauma Tympanometry:To check the air pressure in the middle ear.and find out if there is any fluid.

Aeroplane ear:How to prevent it during flights

Don’t fall asleep during flying, specially during ascent or descent.
Avoid flying if you are having a severe cold.If emergency then use a Nasal decongestant spray just before takeoff and landing.Also take a decongestant orally, before getting on the .Dont use over the counter sprays .They may cause even more problem in the long run.
Take plenty of chewing gum so that you can actively help in Eustachian tube opening during flight.The chewing and swallowing movement helps to open Eustachian tube.
Try Valsalva maneuvre.This is a pressure equalizing technique which helps to pop the ear.You can try this if repeated swallowing and yawning doesn’t help.
Pinch your nostril, take a mouthful of air,close your mouth and try to gently direct the air into the back of your nose.Imagine you are trying to blow your nose gently. You should feel a pressure buildup.But do not let the air out.If you hear a pop you will know the ear is unblocked.


What can young children do to prevent aeroplane ear?

Very young children have difficulty during fflying.Often you will find them irritable crabby , pulling at their ears and may also cry incessantly. This is because the Eustachian tube in infants and very young children are not mature enough to handle the extreme change in pressure.
But you can help them too.

Dont let them fall asleep.
Play with them.
Carry a few pacifiers so that the suck and swallow reflex constantly works.
Talk to your baby doctor whether a decongestant oral medicine is advice able for your child.
A plain saline nasal drop given just before take off and landing helps to increase the swallowing movement and equalise pressure effectively.
What can you do to unblock the ear post flight?

Continue the Valsalva maneuvre/pressure equalizing technique
Normally it’s self healing and gets better within a few hours to few days.
If symptoms are uncomfortable and persists , or the ear doesn’t pop you should visit a doctor specialised in ear diseases
If your nose is blocked , avoid forceful nose blowing and take steam through your nose.This helps to relieve nasal congestion and open up the Eustachian tube.


What your doctor may advice?

Nasal spray; decongestants/steroids
Oral decongestants
Oral antihistamines
Non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs for relieving pain
Once medication have improved Eustachian tube function Valsalva maneuver helps to force open the blocked tube.. Surgery is rarely needed.

If fluid in the middle ear persists even after 3 months myringotomy (incision in the ear drum) is done to drain the fluid.

If the perforation in ear drum does not improve after 3 months tympanoplasty to repair the ear drum may be needed. I hope next time you are flying you will be carrying some chewing gum or hard candy with you.
