Dear, loss of appetite, nausea vomiting are common during initial 3 to 4 months of pregnancy. You be understanding and supportive, ask her food choices and give accordingly. Some times choices can be wierd, but after three months things start improving.

lybrate-user you have to stay stress free in order to get pregnant, and if you do sexual intercourse from the 10th to 20 th day of your periods, chances of becoming pregnant are more, if both you and your partner is fertile and healthy.

White discharge was due to infection. If red dischrge is there it needs evaluation. Pap smear is a routine test after 30 years in women. So to get evalation is better..... Relaxx....

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------------------------ so provide me her lat two menstrual dates and the next expected date, I will let you know, how to calculate safe periods----------------

Stick-thin, Are You? It Could Be Anorexia and Its Dangerous!

Stick-thin, Are You? It Could Be Anorexia and Its Dangerous!
What Causes Anorexia nervosa?

One of the most debilitating psychological conditions is Anorexia Nervosa, an eating disorder which is also the leading reasons of psychological deaths. This eating disorder is characterized by intense fear of gaining weight or body dysmorphia, where an individual believes that they are severely overweight or obese even when they are healthy. It results in obsession with becoming dangerously thin. The condition has several signs, including less than normal weight, obsession with constantly monitoring food and intake of calories, negative body image, extreme exercise and phobia of eating foods that may make one fat.

Some of the symptoms of anorexia nervosa include significant weight loss due to restricted food intake, distorted body image, constipation and yellowish skin, dental decay, hyperactivity and sleep difficulties, weight obsession, fine downy hair on face and arms, frequent problems with digestion, mood swings and anxiety, preoccupation with food and menstrual irregularities. Anorexia usually is a result of physical, emotional and social triggers.

Some of the causes are mentioned below.

1. Extreme dieting : Dieting affects the way your brain and metabolism work. Women who diet to the extreme tend to gain weight back and go on the diet cycle again. This cycle results in stresses on the body and leads to development of eating disorders.

2. Runs in family : People with eating disorder like anorexia are likelier to have family history of the disorder, obesity or other mood disorders.

3. Lower self-esteem : Low self-confidence and negative body image perpetuated by the medical one of the main causes of growing number of eating disorders.

4. Emotional imbalance: Perfectionist and certain personality characteristics. Women who are emotionally restrained are more likely to develop the condition.

5. Obsession : To have feelings of obsession/compulsion (even when it isn’t clinically diagnosed OCD).

6. Biological factors: Puberty and pressures or stresses at school including bullying, other biological factors and malnutrition.

7. Certain life events: Stressful life event such as breakdown of a relationship, physical abuse, death in the family
If you suspect that you or someone you know has anorexia, ensure that you refer them to a psychologist. Anorexia can be life-threatening over the years and needs instant support.

Hello sir, I'm 26 year's old I have found my right side breast is small and left side is big is it cancer. Please tell me.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
No mam, only disproportion due to adherence of breast tissues to chest wall or enlargement of breast due to lump is suspicious. Some amount of natural disproportion is usually present in some females. Look for any lump or thickening. Since you are young you can get an ultrasound done to look for any small lump or lesion.

About 10% of cases of infertility are unexplained wherein all the tests done for husband and wife are normal and no obvious cause can be found. In these cases its best to keep trying. But if nothing happens say in 6months time or if you both are particularly keen seek the help of a fertility specialist who will guide you for iui or ivf. Iui is lots cheaper and is usually the first resort.

Some women experiences pain during intercourse because of lack of lubrication. This is because of lie estrogen levels. Take flaxseeds in your diet,which will help in lubrication. Apply extra virgin olive oil internally and massage it. It will lubricate the internal walls of vagina. You may also consult me privately through Lybrate so that I can help you better with other good medicines and other techniques..

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.

Although ejaculation outside is one of the way of contraception, but at times precum is sufficient to cause pregnancy. Don't worry if you feel lyk smthing is wrong, consult a gynecologist near by you.

I am a 21 year old female. My last period started on 18th May and I usually have a 28 day cycle. I was sexually active from 5th to 13th June, after 3 months. I haven't had my period yet, which should have been due 16th June. I have had occasional abdominal pain and days with missed stools once or twice. Although there were drastic changes in lifestyle due to getting a job for the first time and diet changes due to eating at office mess and hotel food almost everyday, should I be concerned about pregnancy?

You can expect pregnancy if you had unprotected sex or else any early pregnancy symptoms like giddiness anything if you have you can do one urine pregnancy test and check if you were expecting Otherwise period might have missed only due to stress and lifestyle you can wait for 2more week and try for the test as the test won't come positive if it is too early also Good luck.

These drugs may not be directly required for your tiredness. Check your hemoglobin. Do tests for thyroid (t3, t4, tsh). Meet your doctor.
