Hello, the discharge from eh vagina is leucorrhoea and can be mixed fungal and bacterial infection and hence a course of vaginal antifungals and oral antibiotics shall be required, else the infection shall not subside. However irregular periods can be due t oPCOS, hypothyroidism or hyperprolactinemia.

Jerk or speed baker seldom causes abortion but it causes traumatic abortion (trauma, bleeding and then abortion). Now, age is an important factor causing pregnancy loss. Hiv, rubella etc can never cause repeated pregnancy loss. We need to concentrate on 3 causes- genetic (both husband and wife), blood (thrombophilia) and hormonal causes.

Sir my wife period's come and 2nd day stop so what problem with him. And I am doing oral sex so that this is create problem in periods pls answer me.

Cunnilingus or oral sex is safe kind of sex as compared to vaginal or anal sex. Chlamydia, human papillomavirus (hpv), gonorrhea, herpes, hepatitis (multiple strains), and other sexually transmitted infections (stis/stds), can be transmitted through oral sex if the partner is infected with any one of these. But carrying these kind of diseases in a known partner is extremely rare. Risk of sti infection, however, is generally considered significantly lower for oral sex than for vaginal or anal sex, with hiv transmission considered the lowest risk with regard to oral sex. Also it does not change the menses pattern. Hormonal changes can cause this.

I am facing a problem wherein for the past few months it happens that when my periods start the flow is not continuous. It happens for a day and then doesn't happen for a day, then again the flow starts and is fine. I never faced this problem before. What can be the reason for this? How can I take care of this? Is there any specific diet I need to take as I am also underweight by about 5-6 kgs!

Hello lybrate user- oligo mennhorea or less flow during menses might occur due to the reason that you have developed anaemia (low hb count). It is also associated with weight loss. Follow these dietary tips- a) avoid fast food and spicy diet an increase dairy products in diet. B) eat diet prescribed for indians that is dal-chawal-sabji and roti, do not try to follow western routine by reading some article on magazine or internet. C) sleep at least 8-10 hours daily.

You had first exposure on 20th day. In normal 28 days cycle, the egg ruptures on 14th day and can result in pregnancy till the 17th day. So if you were in a regular cycle your chance for pregnancy would be low. But quite often egg ruptures can get delayed, and this usually results in accidental pregnancy. The i-pill best works if taken within 12 hours and effect lasts for next 4-5 days. You were very much covered by safety period provided by i-pill, but unfortunately the drug has 20-30% failure rate. If pregnancy happens in spite of i-pill, you have to wait at least 7 days delayed period before you can test for pregnancy. In future it would be safer to use a regular pill.

You can calculate it by 2 ways---------------- 1. You can have unprotected sex from 1-8 days of a woman's cycle and 20th to appearance of menses days, considering day-1 as 1st day of menses but for these safe period days your menstrual cycle have to be accurate ie. 28 (+-) 2 days.---------------------here day -9 to day-19 is ovulatory or unsafe period in which having unprotected sex can lead to pregnancy-------------------------- 2. If a female has a problem of late or early periods then you can calculate the ovulation day as expected date of menses minus 14 days. Now the ovulatory phase or unsafe periods days comes out to be ovulation day (+-) 5 days, and safe period for unprotected sex will come out to be all other days apart from this ovulatory phase.----lets take an example to explain this---if a woman has a menstrual cycle of 32 days (it must be mathematically accurate) and if her menses started on 1st december and her expected date of next menses comes out to be 2nd february. So her ovulation day comes out to be 18 december (2nd feb minus 14 days) and her ovulatory phase comes out to be 13-23 december (18 dec (+-) 5 days. So having unprotected sex for all other days except 13-23 december is the safe period and by same way a female can calculate her safe and unsafe periods if she is having early menses but make one thing for sure that accuracy of expected date should be 99-100% and she should not be facing any irregular periods problem--------------- 3. For having unprotected sex without fear of being pregnant a female must be sure about 2 things----- (a) her periods are 99-100% regular-------- (b) her calculations regarding ovulatory phase are 100% accurate and for that she should be 100% accurate in calculating her expected date of periods---- (c) take no chance of even 1 day just to please her boy as at the end she is the only one who is going to suffer------------------------

Ideally coitus/sexual exposure should be avoided during pregnancy, as sperms contains prostaglandins which can induce labour/abortion, though chances are less. But usually any act which can raise intra-abdominal procedure should be avoided in the highrisk pregnancy. As u have completed 7 weeks, its better u confirm whether it is viable pregnancy or not after vising your doctor.

All About Esophagectomy

MS - General Surgery, MBBS
General Surgeon
Ask Free Question
The surgical procedure to remove the oesophagus (the tube between your stomach and mouth), partially or completely, and reconstruct it by using a section of the large intestine or stomach is called esophagectomy.

Esophagectomy is commonly used to treat oesophageal cancer.

Uses:

Early-stage oesophageal cancer is frequently treated with an esophagectomy. Other than that, esophagectomy is also performed to treat oesophageal dysplasia (a condition in which cells in the oesophageal lining are precancerous or likely to develop cancer if not promptly treated).

Esophagectomy is commonly performed when cancer has spread to the stomach, lymph nodes or associated organs.

Some other conditions which require esophagectomy include:

Oesophageal trauma.

Swallowing of cell-damaging, or caustic agents such as lye.

Problematic stomach disorders that make the passage of food to the stomach difficult.

A previously performed esophagectomy was unsuccessful.

Procedures:

There are three ways a surgeon may perform an esophagectomy, which include:

Transthoracic Esophagectomy (TTE)

In this type of procedure, the incision is made on the chest. A TTE is mostly used to treat the following conditions:

Cancer present only in two-thirds of the oesophagus

Barrett s oesophagus (Abnormal cell transformation in the lower oesophagus)

Damage to the oesophagus by swallowing a caustic agent

Reflux esophagitis (stomach acids return to the oesophagus) complications

Transhiatal Esophagectomy (THE)

In THE, the incision is made from the end of the breastbone to the bellybutton. THE is performed for the following conditions:

To remove the cancerous oesophagus

To tighten or narrow the oesophagus in order to make swallowing easier

To fix issues in the nervous system

To repair frequent gastroesophageal reflux

Correct a hole in the oesophagus caused by any caustic agent

En Bloc Esophagectomy

In this procedure, the oesophagus, part of the stomach and all the lymph nodes in the abdomen and chest are removed. The incisions are made in the abdomen, chest and neck; the stomach will be reshaped and brought up to the chest to put back the oesophagus.

Potentially curable tumours are treated by en bloc esophagectomy.

Outlook:

Recovery time of esophagectomy is three weeks approximately. You are allowed to go back to your regular diet after a month. You might find that you are eating smaller portions as you stomach size is reduced.
