Consult an Infertility specialist. Go for follicular monitoring to check ovulation Get your husband's semen testing done. GO for laparoscopy to check if fallopian tubes are patent or closed. You might need aid of ovulation inducing agents to conceive. Please mention your age, with age, ovarian reserve declines. You can take help of ART (assisted reproductive techniques) to help in fertilization. All the best PLease feel free to discuss further.

Exclusive breastfeeding should be a rule for a baby till completed 6 months of age.
This means the child should be provided only breast milk for hunger and thirst till that age.

The only exception is medicines and supplements prescribed by child specialist.

If the mother feels child's requirement is not fulfilled, the opinion of doctors should be taken immediately.

Hello Dr. Two days back I have diagnosed with fibroid in my uterus. I am v upset what should I do. Can I go for laparoscopic surgery yet I dont have any baby.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
If the fibroid is causing problem which is not relieved by medicine then only surgery is the option. If the fibroid is less than 5 cm then no need of surgery. Fibroids are very common and found in 20% of women. Problem for which it needs to be removed are heavy bleeding during menses requiring blood transfusion or severe dysmenorrhoea.

She's been married over an year but they are not able to have sex. Penetration is very difficult. Kindly advise.

General Physician,
1. For penis penetration difficulty you see a doctor a do a detail examination whether vaginal passage is normal or not. 2. The tissue in front of vagina (hymen) sometimes would have not teared after penetration (usually tears in the first intercourse) -- little loose or tight. Kindly consult a lady doctor near by.

10 Side Effects of Birth Control Pills

MBBS, DGO
Gynaecologist, Gurgaon
10 Side Effects of Birth Control Pills

Most medications are used because of their one particular therapeutic effect. However, invariably, they affect other organs or systems and produce some good and some adverse effects. The same happens with birth control pills (BCPs), which are the most commonly used method of contraception. It is also the most effective method. It contains the female hormones estrogen and progesterone in various combinations and these have an effect on various body functions, so it should come as a surprise that regular use of BCPs leads to a number of side effects.

Read on to know more

  1. Intermenstrual bleeding: This is the most common side effect and occurs in about 90% of the women, but usually subsides within 3 months. They experience bleeding between their regular periods. While mere spotting can be ignored, bleeding for more than 4 to 5 days needs a visit to the doctor.
  2. Missed period: It is very essential to take the pill at the same time daily. Sometimes, a period might be missed or may be very light and this should be reported.
  3. Effect on libido: While some report a decrease in libido, there are others who experience an increased sex drive. This depends on the individual and not consistent.
  4. Vaginal discharge: The amount and type of discharge can change when on the pill. Decreased lubrication may lead to a reduced sex drive, as it might be painful. If the discharge is foul-smelling or looks suspicious for an infection, then a doctor should be consulted.
  5. Mood changes: Changes in mood and prominent mood swings are very common in women using contraceptives, with many feeling depressed often.
  6. Effects on breasts: While it is not yet proven if they increase the risk of breast cancer, most women experience breast enlargement, tenderness, and sometimes pain. This is more common in between their periods.
  7. Headaches and migraine: BCPs are also proven to have worsening effects on migraine and headaches.
  8. Circulatory effects: Oral contraceptives increase the chances of heart attack and stroke, especially in women who are over 35 and are smokers. Most women experience a slight increase in blood pressure and are more prone to form blood clots. It is essential that contraceptives are used under medical guidance only.
  9. Digestive effects: Oral contraceptives can cause loss of appetite, changes in body weight, diarrhea, and nausea. The weight gain is also attributed to increased fluid retention, especially in the hip and breast areas.
  10. Skin: Some women may experience skin rashes and acne and sometimes hair loss due to the increased level of hormones in circulation.

It is very important that the pill is taken at the same time for best results. Any suspicious symptom should be immediately reported to the doctor.

Hi, the ultrasound seems to be ok. You need to have some supplements of iron and calcium which your doctor will prescribe. Diet should include nuts and fruits. Fruits are better than fruit juices. High protein and low carb diet is better.

Please tell me. When is the best time for having a quantitative Blood Pregnancy Test after sex for accurate result?

MBBS, PG Diploma in HIV Medicine
General Physician,
Please tell me. When is the best time for having a quantitative Blood Pregnancy Test after sex for accurate result?
Ovum or egg releases on 14 or 15th day from the first day of the menstruation in a woman having regular cycles. It servives for 24 hrs only but sperm survives 4 days after ejaculation inside the uterus. So if a person had sex between 10th to 17 th day of a monthly cycle then there will be more chance of getting pregnant and the period is known as unsafe period. Home based pregnancy tests look for urinary HCG for presence of pregnancy.. for accurate result we need to perform the test after stoppage of menstruation least for one time.. But the confirmation has to be done by physician only.. Contact for any further assistance

Hi sir, I had my period on last 9-july-2016 and me my bf doing unprotected sex on 22-july-16 many time in a day. He always release his sperm outside of my vagina. But I was took unwanted 72 after 24 hour. Well. After took unwanted 72 I had done google and see when a girl take unwanted 72 she got withdrawal of bleeding in in 2-5 days or early periods in 7-10 days but today is 4-august 2016 its 12 day of mine but I had not got any bleed. And my next cycle date is 9-august-2016 now I have no any symptoms of any period every time I had lots of pain before periods but now I have no any feeling right now. Note:- when I had took unwanted 72 I have got so much pain in my stomach but now no any pain like that ? So what is it no bleeding mean unwanted 72 not work ? May I have pregnant ? Or its not necessary every body got bleed after take unwanted 72 ? Now what should I do what you think whats my next cycle date when I had not got bleed after take unwanted 72.(i mean what my next period start date?) and more more simple question how much ejaculation needed (i mean one time whole releases of sperm) for baby born a whole sperm ejaculation or just a drop of sperm ?

If you have taken unwanted 72 within 2 days of intercourse the chance of getting pregnant is very less. Not everyone gets withdrawal bleeding, I suggest you wait until 10 aug for your period. If you do not get it then get home pregnancy test. A single sperm is enough to get pregnant, this practice of ejaculating outside is not safe if you planning not to get pregnant. I suggest you use condoms as it protects you not only from pregnancy but also from other sexually transmitted diseases. Take care.

Fresh Fruits Vs. Dry Fruits

Fresh Fruits Vs. Dry  Fruits

Fresh Fruits vs. Dehydrated Fruits - What’s Better?

It is said that dehydrated fruits offer same health benefits as that of fresh fruits, but differ slightly in mineral and vitamin content. Both fresh and dried fruits will provide you with fiber and antioxidants, which are beneficial for your health; however dried fruits usually lose a small percentage of their vitamins during the process of dehydration.

When you compare fresh and dried fruits, it’s great to make use of the standard serving sizes, which are 1 cup of fresh fruit and ¼ cup of dried fruit.

But when fruits lose their water content and eventually volume during the drying process, their sugar, calorie and nutrient content become concentrated. So when you consume a handful of dried fruits, there is an in-take of more calories than you would if you consumed that same quantity of fresh fruits.

Besides giving you a variety in taste and health benefits, both fresh fruits and dehydrated fruits have their own significance.

For instance, whereas dry fruits can offer you portability and a longer shelf life; fresh fruit as opposed to dry fruits contain higher amount of minerals and hence is a more nutritious choice than dried fruits.

If you are keeping a close watch on your weight, then dried fruits should not be eaten much as they contain considerably more calories in each serving than the fresh fruits. Dried fruits that contain sugar additives are high in calorie content, but the ones with low calorie content offer numerous health rewards:

- Antioxidants

There are some dried fruits which are a rich source of antioxidants, the Journal of the American College of Nutrition revealed. For instance, Phenol an antioxidant-type is found more in dried fruits such as figs and dates than in fresh fruits.

- High Fiber

Dried fruits are usually high in fiber content than the equal-sized serving of the fresh fruits. Fiber helps in running our digestive system smoothly and prevents obesity as well as cancer and heart disease.

Hi this and from past 10 years I am having fribo adenoma on my right breast and twice I have been operated but again and again coming back.

There is no need to get it removed unless it is causing significant symptoms or is rapidly growing in size or there is a recent change in its character or there is some reason for suspicion. Harmless fibroadenoma may be left alone but with monthly observation by self examination and periodic examination by a general surgeon.
