Hey. How many days after taking sysron n will I get my periods. Can nobody help me out? I hv taken sysron n for 3 days twice a day after food.
In a normal pregnancy, the egg that the ovaries release enters the fallopian tube. If a sperm fertilises it, the fertilised egg attaches itself inside the uterus. However, sometimes the fertilised egg can attach itself outside the uterus. This condition is called ectopic pregnancy.
Ectopic pregnancy can be detected in the first few weeks of the pregnancy itself. If your doctor does discover ectopic pregnancy, you would need immediate medical attention. Ectopic pregnancies can be sad and scary. The survival rate of the baby is extremely low, and you may need some time to get over your loss. Fortunately, one ectopic pregnancy doesn't mean you can never conceive again. Many women who lost their first baby to ectopic pregnancy have been able to have a healthy and normal pregnancy the second time around.
The causes of ectopic pregnancy include:
- An inflammation or infection of the fallopian tube can lead it to become entirely or partially blocked.
- Scar tissue from a surgery or an infection of the fallopian tube may also hinder the movement of the fertilised egg.
- Surgery in the tubes or pelvic areas in the past might cause adhesions.
- Birth defects or abnormal growths can cause anomalies in the shape of the tube.
These causes are usually followed by certain risk factors, such as:
- Age (The age group of 35-44 especially)
- An ectopic pregnancy in the past
- Previous abdominal or pelvic surgery
- Pelvic inflammatory disease
- Several prompted abortions
- Conceiving with an intrauterine device in place
- Endometriosis (growth of uterus lining tissues outside the uterus).
- Fertility treatments.
The signs and symptoms of ectopic pregnancy include:
- Minimal vaginal bleeding
- Vomiting and nausea with pain
- Pain in the lower abdomen
- Sharp cramps in the abdomen
- Localised pain (Pain concentrated on one side of your body)
The treatment of ectopic pregnancy can be any one of the following:
- If the pregnancy has not progressed too far, methotrexate will be administered. This absorbs the pregnancy tissue and can save the fallopian tubes.
- The tubes may be removed if they have ruptured or stretched, and have started bleeding.
- Laparoscopic surgery (operations performed by making minor incisions) may be performed to remove or repair the tubes and recover the ectopic pregnancy. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.

What is Thyroxine?
Thyroxine, also known as T4, is the main hormone which is secreted by the thyroid gland into the bloodstream. Although it is an inactive form, most of it is converted to an active form called triiodothyronine by organs such as the liver and kidneys. The hypothalamus in the brain along with the pituitary and thyroid glands modulate the production and release of thyroid hormones.
What Happens If You Have Too Little Thyroxine?
If the level of thyroxine in the blood is low, then the pituitary gland releases more thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) to try and stimulate the thyroid gland to make more thyroxine. Therefore, a raised level of TSH means the thyroid gland is underactive and is not making enough thyroxine. When the thyroid gland produces very little quantity of thyroxine, then the condition is known as hypothyroidism.
As thyroid hormones are essential for physical and mental development, so hypothyroidism during development or before birth and during childhood causes mental impairment and reduced physical growth.
Symptoms usually show a slow and gradual progression before they become worse over months or years as the level of thyroxine in the body gradually falls.
In adults it causes a decrease in metabolic rate resulting in symptoms that include:
- Intolerance of cold temperature
- Low heart rate
- Weight gain
- Reduced appetite
- Poor memory
- Stiffness of the muscles
- Slow movements and thoughts
- Muscle aches, cramps, and weakness
- Dry skin
Less Common Symptoms include:
- Hoarse voice
- Irregular or heavy menstrual periods in women
- Loss of sex drive
- Carpal tunnel syndrome (which causes pains and numbness in the hand)
- Memory loss or confusion in the elderly
- Autoimmune diseases: The immune system makes antibodies against your body cells
- Poor iodine intake
- Use of certain drugs like amiodarone and lithium
- Surgical removal or injury to thyroid gland
- Underactive thyroid gland (congenital hypothyroidism)
- Low thyroxine level causes the blood fats (lipids) - cholesterol etc., to rise
- Pregnant females have an increased risk of developing some pregnancy complications like:
- Pre-eclampsia (high blood pressure and protein in urine)
- Premature labor
- Low birth weight
- Serious bleeding after the birth
- Hypothyroid coma (myxedema coma) is a very rare complication
- Myxedema coma is a rare but life-threatening state of extreme hypothyroidism
Diagnosis and Investigations:
It involves a blood test which screens the levels of TSH and free T4 and T3. Usually, the reports show high TSH and T3 and T4 levels.
Treatment usually involves taking a daily tablet of thyroid hormone levothyroxine to replace the missing thyroxine. Treatment works very well for most people with hypothyroidism but is required for life. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I am Dr. Bandita Sinha. I am an obstetrician and infertility specialist. I have been practicing from last 20 years. Today I would like to discuss about PCOS/PCOD. It is very common. 1 in every 5 females having PCOS. In India around 1 million cases are diagnosed per year. It is becoming an epidemic in our country. We should know what is it. It is caused due to hormonal imbalances.
Certain things which happen and we need to know the symptoms of PCOS. It is a metabolic disorder wherein irregularity in the menses, scanty menses, irregular or prolonged menses or the menses can stop altogether. Apart from it there is obesity or weight gain or difficulty in losing weight, facial hair, thinning of hair, mood swings and irritability as well.
How does it happen? It is a lifestyle disorder. There can also be the possibility of genetically implication. In lifestyle, intake of junk food has increased the development of PCOS. Lack of physical activities, sleep. Stress is very important factor. This usually happens when we are taking stress or irregularity of food or junk food to much, then there is liberation of the male hormones or androgen in our body. Male and female hormones give rise to small cyst in the ovaries.
How is this disease diagnosed? Normally patient comes with irregular or scanty periods, facial hair, weight gain and acne. This condition can be diagnosed with certain blood test which detects the hormonal level. Apart from that we also do a sugar test to rule out the insulin level. And sonography is done to check the cyst.
How do we treat this condition? Patient thinks that it can never be cured. Yes, there is no cure but as like the diabetes, things should be in under control. Lifestyle changes are required. We need to change our dietary pattern. Patient should go for a low carbohydrate diet. Absolute no for the junk food. We should go for a weight loss session. 45 minutes exercises are important. Along with that stress management is also recommended. A good night sleep for at least 7-8 hours. Relaxation techniques like yoga or meditation. PCOS is a condition where there is the male and female hormone imbalance. With all these and the medication, things will become normal for you. The fertility also improves. They are able to conceive as well. In very rare cases where the medicines are not working and patient require for fertility than we opt for a surgery which is laparoscopic ovarian drilling which helps ovaries to ovulate.
In a nutshell I would recommend that the healthy lifestyle, exercise, along with the stress management will help to control this disorder. And let's live a healthy life following a healthy lifestyle. If you want to know more about PCOS or related condition and the condition which are affecting the fertility of a female you can contact me through Lybrate.
