Hello, If pregnancy is ruled out then the delay can be stress induced and the symptoms that you re experiencing are PMS.

Vaginal itching usually indicates a fungal infection. You can apply surfaz-sn cream or imidil cream locally 2-3 times a day. If you are sexually active you can use an intravaginal pessary clingen - forte everyday one at bedtime for 7 days.

You are already suffering from PCOS. You should reduce weight rather than gaining weight. You should do pregnancy test to confirm you r nt pregnant. Start taking treatment for pcos. Periods will become regular.

My friend had an unprotected sex. The sperm has not entered into vagina but only touched it. The women is getting delayed in periods? Suggest us what needs to be done.

Dear user. TO CAUSE PREGNANCY on a woman, sperm should be ejaculated inside the vagina or fresh sperm should be inseminated inside the vagina with some means during the fertility period of the woman. Pregnancy only happens when other aspects are too satisfied. In the given case, there are less chances of pregnancy. Take care.

Please rule out pregnancy as you r bleeding and sexually active. If negative then you should be started on 3 months pills to stop bleeding and in the meantime get ultrasound done.

I had sex with my boyfriend last week. 4 days earlier I found that my right leg labia is swollen and irritated and now my right Labia is irritated, swollen, very big and there are pustules all over my vagina, Labia and clitoris. It is so painful that I can't even open my legs. I consulted a gyno three days back she gave me an antibiotic (azithral 500), painkiller and Vibac ds. All my STD test came back negative. Pain has reduced a bit. I'm taking medication for last 2 days. Pustules busted and all the puss came out now it is more like an open ulcer wound. Doctor has told me to continue the medication for 5 days. My question is that weather the antibiotic medicines which I take be sufficient enough to heal the ulcer wounds. Ulcer wounds Now gives out a yellow color discharge. It pains a lot because the ulcer ones are all over my vagina, clitoris inside my labia. Is it normal because all my STD tests are negative when will the wounds heal? Will antibiotics be sufficient enough To close and heal the pustule wounds.

You are taking the right antibiotics and may be it will take another 5 days to heal but you are showing signs of healing . you cannot apply ointment but try powder clotrimazole and apply all over the affected areas , powder will help you 2 ways , it will seal one wound and stop spread of infection to other normal areas & it will control itching and heal the wounds quicker.

8 Ways 'All Work and No Play' Messes Up with Your Health!

8 Ways 'All Work and No Play' Messes Up with Your Health!

8 ways 'all work and no play' messes up with your health!

Failure to strike a healthy work-life balance can see your health going on the downswing. Several studies have time and again highlighted the fact that working too much can be bad for you. The major factor that is at play when you work too much is stress, which negatively impacts both your mental and physical well-being. A joint study conducted by Stanford university and Harvard business school has revealed that workplace stress can ruin your physical health by as much as 90%.

Read on to find out the ill-effects of all work and no play.

1. Working overtime can increase your risk of developing cardiovascular problems by about 60%.

2. While working too much can see your risk of experiencing a heart attack rise by about 13%, over 55 hours of work time every week can increase your chances of getting a stroke by about 33%.

3. Consistently working overtime can lead you to face mental health problems.

4. Over-working can cause your learning ability and memory power to fail as you don't get the required amount of rest time.

5. Working for over 11 hours a day can increase your chances of suffering from depression.

6. Working for over 40 hours a week can increase your risk of gaining weight, and indulging in alcohol and tobacco abuse.

7. Working for over 50 hours a week can bring about a reduction in your sleep time to less than 6 hours a day, which can have an adverse impact on your work performance.

8. Working non-stop in front of the computer can cause you to become prone to headaches and blurred vision.

Here's how you can prevent the negative effects of working too much from impacting your health:

1. Take a short trip

Being physically away from your workplace and going on short vacations can help your health considerably as it reduces work-related stress to a great extent. It also helps in the rejuvenation of your mind and body, thereby improving your overall health.

2. Meditate for a calmer self

Meditation is another helpful way in which you can cut down the harm that too much work can have on your body. Spend a few moments each day to de-stress and calm your agitated mind.

3. Don't bring work home

Once you're at home, avoid the impulse of checking your phone or email for work. Furthermore, avoid bringing your smartphone with you to the dinner table and don't discuss work while eating.

4. Go for regular checkups

Visiting a doctor regularly is another preventive measure that you need to take very seriously. Screening tests for stroke, heart disease or high blood pressure should be undertaken from time to time so as to prevent yourself from falling prey to such problems.

Despite your heavy workload, you still need to take out time for yourself. It is imperative that you do so in order to create a better work-life balance and consequently, a healthier self.

What is uterine bubbles? I was suffering from that monthly twice periods is coming.

DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology), PGDHHM, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Uterine bubbles are fluid retention in uterus. Some women can develop fluid retention in the uterus in a few different ways. Fluid may become present in the uterus in the form of fibroids. Drinking excess coffee (think 5-6 cups a day) will undoubtedly lead to fibroid growth. Non-malignant growths and tumors can also cause fluid in the uterus, and those that suffer from pelvic inflammatory disease will also find they suffer from fluid becoming trapped within the uterus. If you want prevention for that then avoid coffee, tea, increase your fiber intake.

You need to purchase good company card like velocit or preg test card and it is very accurate. I need to read result within 5 min and even faint second line is positive. You have test only when you miss the periods by 7 days.

4 Diet Dangers To Avoid This Summer

4 Diet Dangers To Avoid This Summer

It is a popular belief that summers are better for exercise routines and therefore more walking and running can happen. Not just that, the basic metabolic rate is believed to go higher as foods are burned faster and more effectively. However, there is a need to watch what you eat and how much do you exercise cautiously, whatever the season.

With summer comes the time for holidays, which means more eating out a lot more, barbeque nights, and more traveling. It is very important to watch not just calories, but also the healthy quotient of the foods.

  1. Cooling Foods: Well, ice-creams and smoothies may provide a cooling effect, they are not totally cool. The soaring temperatures increase the urge to indulge in smoothies and ice-creams. While it is okay to indulge in them maybe once in a week, ordering an ice-cream or a smoothie on a daily basis is to be avoided. Opt for low-calorie, no-fat smoothies, or frozen desserts. Tender coconuts and plain fruit juices are another option. Tender coconut is the best option as it is naturally protected and packed with nutrition.
  2. Barbecue nights: While summer allows you to enjoy a barbeque party in your garden or the terrace, watch what actually gets barbequed and eaten. Grilling is considered one of the healthiest cooking methods, but the side dishes do the most harm. The cheesy dressings and salads take away the benefits of eating the grilled foods. While calories are one thing to watch for, hygiene is another thing. With summer setting in, the number of food-borne diseases also increases.
  3. Picnic foods: Summer holidays bring in time for picnics and outings. Whether you have a beach in your neighborhood or a hilltop just a couple of hours drive away, it is common to see families heading out for picnics with packed food stuff. The food per se may not be as harmful as the chips, fries and other accompaniments that go with it. Add to it the urge to include ice-creams while on the go, they could push your calories straight upwards. And whether you are headed to the beach or the hilltop, the combination of the cool weather and the hot summer puts you at a higher risk for food poisoning. Make sure you eat fully cooked food and not pick from any joint on the way.
  4. Beer: There can be nothing more inviting than a mug of chilled beer for the adults during summer. However, do not forget to pay attention to the calories that get added through it. Be mindful of this fact. We are not saying you should quit, but you definitely need to watch the amount of calories that you are gulping down from the mug.

There are many other tips to watch for in your diet during summer, however, these are the major dangers.
