Hello, If menses have not arrived, and its been a week, then get a serum beta hcg test done to rule out pregnancy first. If its just 72 hrs, then take an emergency contraceptive pill.

Usually we don't prescribe Primolute N for more than one week. Now you have taken it for 15 days, usually no serious side effects but may cause acne, breast pain, headache etc. There is no harm in delaying cycle as we sometimes prescribe drugs to stop periods for even 6 months. Son, don't worry

Lubricant could be used in such a condition. Domestic cooking oil or vaseline and lubricant available at store as well. But it is also possible you might have used this but there could surgical deformity too to your partner. Wish you good health.

Doing sex in first day of menses have less chances of getting pregnant, it is called natural contraceptive. But it is not sure. 1% chances are there. For confirmation go with upt (urine pregma test)

Why You Must Exercise During Periods?

Gynaecologist, Gurgaon
Why You Must Exercise During Periods?

The question of whether or not a woman should work out or not when it is the time of the month is one that has been much talked about. Fluctuations in hormone levels that take place during the monthly cycle have a tremendous impact on the level of energy, stamina and the body's response to exercise. The likelihood of getting injured is also different during periods.

Exercising during your period has many positive impacts on the body. Each woman's ability to work out and her response to it are different and hence the workout routine you must adhere to can vary from person to person.

What are the benefits of working out during periods?

  • Exercising during periods can be effective in alleviating the symptoms that accompany your period at the time such as stress and anxiety.
  • Loss of body fluids through sweating while doing exercises significantly reduces bloating in the belly.
  • Exercising can also ensure that there is less cramping and heavy flow during periods.
  • Endorphins released during exercise functions as a natural painkiller for period pains.

What are the best ways of working out during periods?

Depending upon how your body responds to periods, suitable workout routines can vary from high-intensity training (hit) like running, cycling and heavy lifting to low intensity training (lit) like brisk walking and step aerobics.

Most women opt for light exercises during the first few days of the cycle and then gradually increase intensity, which is advisable for those who are not in the habit of regularly working out. Athletes and sportswomen who train all around the year take to high-intensity workouts that focus on core strengthening and cardio boost.

What exercises should be avoided during periods?

The only kind of workout that should be avoided during this time is yoga that involves any 'inverted pose' that requires a woman to perform partial or complete headstands. These poses negatively impact blood flow and can cause painful heavy bleeding.

Apart from that, when it comes to exercising during periods, the guideline is simple - if you can handle it, you should go ahead and do it. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.

Human chorionic gonadotrophin (hcg), the unique pregnancy hormone, that the developing placenta releases immediately after implantation of the fertilized egg on the inner lining of the uterus, enters your bloodstream before it filters to your urine. So, if you have a feeling that you may have gotten pregnant, you have to wait 7 to 12 days after you had unprotected sex before you can take a blood pregnancy test (b-hcg) and get the result for pregnancy. A majority of over-the-counter urine home pregnancy tests claim to be accurate on the day of your missed period. However, studies have shown that they are most accurate 7 days after your missed period, since the level of hcg in your body doubles every 2 to 3 days after implantation. There are a few of the newer (and more expensive) home pregnancy brands that can detect very low amounts of hcg and allow you to test before you miss your period.

Hello- ideal mestruation cycle is some what around 28 days (2 days +/-). If your cycle repeats in 20 days than it is quite possible that in prolonged picture you will develop anemia (due to loss of blood) and will result in improper flow or less flow during the cycle. As your symptoms suggest you might be suffering from the issue discussed above and yes its a serious issue. Try this ayurveic treatment to improve your condition and make your menses normal- a) dadimadi ghrita 1 tsp twice daily. B) abhra loha 1 tab twice daily. C) kuberaksha vati 1 tab twice daily. D) avoid spicy and fast food and do increase dairy products like ghee and milk in your diet.

Hello, pain in breasts few days before and after menses is commonly seen due to pms symptoms which are common. But if the soreness continues for the whole month, then hormonal profile is mandatory to look for progesterone levels in the blood. Till then nsaids can be used for pain relief. Regards.

Do you know correct way of drinking water?

Do you know correct way of drinking water?

The way in which you drink water can seriously be a life-changer. And all you need to make is simple, minor changes such as --

1. First off, sit down to drink (just as you should sit down to eat).

2. Take sips, not full-glass chugs. Small sip, swallow, breathe. Repeat.

3. Sip water throughout the day. If you chug too much water at once your body doesn't actually absorb all of it. Most of it will run right through you.

4. Drink at least room temperature water. Warm is even better. Cold and iced water literally douse the digestive fire.

5. Only sip a small amount of water with your meals. If you drink too much while you eat, your belly won’t have enough room for digestive action. Remember this rule: fill your stomach 1/3 with food, 1/3 with water, and leave 1/3 empty for the digestive juices and process.

6. For the same reason, don’t drink loads of water before or after your meals.

7. As far as how much, we’re all different sizes with varied diets and lifestyles. One set rule of eight glasses a day simply can not apply to everyone. Naturally, the miraculous human body has it’s own built-in measuring system: thirst. If you’re thirsty, drink water. When you listen to thirst cues and sip water throughout the day you’ll be drinking the right amount.

8. Your urine is a secondary confirmation to know if you’re amply hydrated. It should be fairly clear and straw colored. If it’s dark yellow you need to drink more.

9. Your lips are yet another indicator. If they’re dry you might be dehydrated.

As your age is 25 years, chances of recovery in all your problems are better. You can opt for homeopathic treatment in which all your problems can be covered simultaneouslly. As due to slipped disc you cannot exercise which may cause weight gain, again your pcod increases weeight and if weight control is not done then pcod doesnot get cured easily. Better to treat your back pain and pcod along with diet management and breathing exercise as of now and once better with pain you will be able to exercise also. You can consult privately with all your reports till date.
