Dear, it is hormonal change at your age. Possibly you might be getting more pain during menstruation. If there is no discharge from the nipple and there are no signs of inflamation on your breast, needs only observation and a n analgesic for the symptomatic relief.

Actually having intercourse during pregnancy is not contraindicated provided there is no complication in the pregnancy. But it is better to avoid in the first and last three months. Please follow your doctor's advice.

My mom is in 45 years age & suffering in menstrual period time due to heavy bleeding & blood clots, please Give us a solution.

Advanced Aesthetics
Ayurveda, Gulbarga
After reaching a certain age, a woman? s ovaries stop making eggs and there is less production of hormones like estrogen and progesterone that regulate menstruation and fertility. Gradually, menstrual cycles become irregular and eventually stop. Menopause is confirmed when a woman has no period for 12 consecutive months. This process normally happens between ages 45 and 55 while going through menopause, fluctuating levels of estrogen and progesterone can cause symptoms like hot flashes, night sweats, tired feet, insomnia, depression, vaginal dryness, bladder problems, thinning hair, dry skin, breast pain, mood swings and memory problems. Soy soy products have also been found to be very effective in treating many menopause symptoms. The isoflavones in soy products help balance hormone levels and have some estrogenic activity. A comprehensive study by researchers at the bowman gray school of medicine in north carolina found that women who took a phytoestrogen-rich soy supplement reported a significant decrease in the severity of their hot flashes? try to drink two glasses of soy milk daily? you can also have a few slices of soy linseed bread daily? also include more soy products in your diet. 4. Vitamin e clinical studies have shown that vitamin e acts as a substitute for estrogen, in turn helping to regulate and control hot flashes. It is also known for helping reduce vaginal dryness and heart palpitations? topical application of vitamin e oil to the vagina will help improve lubrication? a daily dose of 600 ius of natural vitamin e is recommended to reduce hot flashes. Take one 200 iu capsule with every meal, for a total of three per day. Any queries inform me.

Hi, my age is 25 years old I did not get periods from last 45 days. Suggest me some medicines without side effects.
Hi. If you are sexually active, kindly get a urine pregnancy test done at home. If not, hormonal, environmental, stress can sometime delay or advance periods. You may wait for a few days, most likely you will get periods. If not you could be put on progesterone withdrawl for inducing menstruation. And if this problem persists for next cycle also, the case needs to be further evaluated. You will require to get few blood tests done like cbc, tsh, s. Prolactin, usg and other tests should it prove necessary.

Hi Kirti. Creams like Veet will cause intense pain and burning currently as at term the woman's becomes extra pain sensitive. So i would recommend you to shave it out but that too I'm not sure if you will be able to do it with the big belly in between. However if you can ask somebody to do it extremely carefully you can go ahead with it.

I want sex with my wife. With out having condom and I do not want to use any medicine after having sex to prevent pregnancy. She will get periods in between 14 to 19 days. Which days is safe not get pregnancy to have sex without using condom.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
No period is completely safe to prevent pregnancy. But as a rough guide days 1 to 7 and last 7 days of the menstrual cycle are safe for having sex (in females with a cycle of 28 days or more). If you wish to enjoy your sexual experiences without barriers like condoms, you may ask your wife to start oc pills after a gynecologist's advice.

Sugar Addiction - Tips To Overcome It!

B.Sc.(Hons), P.G.Dietetics

Sugar Addiction - Tips To Overcome It!

You can be very much addicted to having sugar that many-a-times you might find it difficult to cut down on the amount of your intake. You might find it impossible to stop eating sugar. You might crave to have anything which has a lot of sugar in it.

Why is it bad?

Sugar is a fattening compound as it contains fructose. Sugar causes you to overeat, which in turn causes weight gain. It can bring anatomical changes in the brain, which gets you into an addiction. Sugar addiction is just like any other addiction, like that with nicotine or any other drugs. The only difference is the substance being used. Sugar can mess with the chemical balance of the brain to make you crave for it more.

  1. A 2009 study from the University of California shows how a high-fructose diet can cause you to build new fat cells around your heart, liver, and digestive organs in just 10 weeks, plunging you into the early stages of diabetes and heart disease (whereas a high glucose diet did not have the same effects) 
  2. Excess fructose consumption is a major contributor to insulin resistance and obesity, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, liver disease, cancer, arthritis, and other diseases 
  3. Fructose is metabolized very differently in your body from glucose; all of the metabolic burden falls on your liver, in much the same way as for alcohol, and your body becomes a sea of toxic by-products. 
  4. Glucose, on the other hand, is your body’s nearly ideal source of fuel, meaning it has none of the damaging metabolic effects of fructose; glucose also suppresses your appetite, unlike fructose, which stimulates your appetite and encourages overeating and the accumulation of excess body fat

How to overcome it?

To overcome sugar addiction, here are a few steps you can take:

  1. Observe yourself: This is the first step you should take. Observe what you eat, how much of sugar it contains. Take a note of how you feel after having sugar or something, which is laden with sugar. Keep a diary entry of whatever you observe about yourself and your sugar consumption.
  2. Practice self care: It is extremely difficult for any sugar addict to transition into a diet without any sugar or low sugar content. You will have to take it slow and add regular practice of self care. Do not avoid breakfast every morning. Remember to add in the required amount of fats and proteins (learn more about the Importance of Protein). Do not skip out on meals. Drink a lot of water and fluids like fresh fruit juice and sleep for at least 7 hours or more so that you get proper rest.
  3. Be honest with yourself: If you are trying to get rid of the sugar addiction, you have to be extremely honest without yourself. If you succumb to temptation and end up eating a few too many candies, then be honest with yourself and admit it. Make it a point to overcome the temptation the next time.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult the doctor and ask a free question.

Hello, gaining weight and irregular menses is indicative of pcos and possible hypothyroidism which can cause anovulation i. E. No release of ovum or no menses and hence difficulty in conception, so get a hormonal profile done and an ultrasound pelvis for ruling out pcos.

The most fertile time is midcycle if you are having regular 28-30 days cycle. It normally is advisable to have sex seven to nine days after your period starts in the next cycle to help you get pregnant. There are medicines but these should only be prescribed once you have been examined by your gynaecologist and a few tests done.

Low Libido Post Pregnancy - 6 Things To Help You Manage It!

MD, BHMS, Post Graduate Diploma In Hospital Administration (PGDHA)
Sexologist, Delhi
Low Libido Post Pregnancy - 6 Things To Help You Manage It!

The lack of libido after pregnancy is common in women. Almost every woman goes through this phase. Apart from hormonal imbalance, there could be a range of other factors, such as fatigue, distraction and psychological fear that may contribute to it. Doctors often suggest refraining from sex for six months after the baby is born. If, however, you still suffer from a lack of sexual urge, here is a checklist that could help you to reignite the old spark.

  1. Communicate with your partner: Talking to your husband about sex is important. Women often shy away from discussing sex with their partner only to complicate things further. Men, on the other hand, take a lack of interest in sex from their partner as a sign of their inability to satisfy. Before things go out of hand, it is important that you communicate your feelings and explain how your body is not supporting you. This will set the expectation straight.
  2. Visit your doctor: While a lack of interest in sex immediately after giving birth is normal; if it continues to persist for many months following the delivery, it is time to visit your doctor. A lower libido can be a sign of other physical problems as well. Some simple tests by your doctor can easily reveal any problems that you might have.
  3. Address fatigue: More than 70% of the women suffer from fatigue after giving birth. This is one of the major reasons of low sex drive among women. Short naps throughout the day will help you to fight fatigue and stabilise your hormones. Enough rest will inch you towards increasing your libido.
  4. Try some running: Brisk walking or jogging for every thirty minutes a day will make you feel better. This will ensure that your heart pumps faster and your sexual desire doesn’t wear out. It will help you to become more active and take charge of your sex life. Jogging also helps to wipe out the excess fat that you might have accumulated during the pregnancy.
  5. Try a supplement: There are a plethora of supplements out there in the market to enhance your libido. From creams to natural herbs, vitamin to herb creams, the options are many. Ginseng, for instance, is a proven herb that is known to increase a women’s sexual desire. Most of these supplements do not lead to any serious side effects.
  6. Prepare yourself mentally: It is always a good idea to prepare yourself before the act. A warm bed, a little wine, a romantic movie will direct you to transform from a young mother to a lover. Often these little preparations go a long way in increasing the sexual drive and reigniting the old spark. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Sexologist.

She has fibroids. Biggest us about 7cm. All is all not hurting. Period normal. Only trouble is she has pass water very frequently. The bladder cannot Hillmorton than 125ml liquid. If she tries to ignore and not pass water than the bladder goes into retention and cannot pass water at all. Apart from having hysterectomy can the fibroids be removed? Or reduced?
