What is the symptoms of breast cancer (Women) in rural area's of India and the precaution to avoid this?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Breast cancer presents as painless lump. As it advances it can lead to skin changes, pain, redness, orange peel like appearance, fixity to chest wall, dimpling of skin and very advanced can cause lump to grow, bleeding ulceration etc. Though lifestyle is simple in rural areas but still gene related, hormonal disbslance etc may cause breast cancer and the simplest way of screening is self examination in sitting and lying down position and also check for symmetry infront of mirror. It should be done monthly five days after the periods are over.

I am a 25 year old girl. I am having a problem related to my menstural cycle. I am having my menarche itself. Initially my periods last for about 15-20 days with heavy flow for about 1 week and sometimes even more than that. It stops only after taking medicine from a doctor. Later I contacted some other doctor who did all the tests and ultrasound but she didn't found any abnormality. She prescribed some iron supplements and a medicine named ovaral l. By taking that medicine continuously for 3 months my problem was solved. I was getting normal periods on every 5th day of the last pack of tablets. But after that I thought not to continue the tablets as it seems abnormal. Why I am not getting it in a natural way and also that tablet was a contraceptive so I got scared and asked my doctor if I can leave it. She told to leave and see. After leaving I was not getting periods at all for 2 -3 months. Then again I contacted my doctor that time she gave me another tablet named deviry. This was for starting my periods. After eating 5 tablets, my period got started. And end after 6 days. Which is normal. But again for 2-3 months I didn't got. Again I contacted then again she told me to take that tablet again. I did that and tha same thing happened. All normal. But now the situation became like I am not getting periods at all without that tablet even if I leave for 4 months. I feel it is totally unnatural way to get periods. It may affect my health and my further sexual life. Can you pls advice me how I can get my periods naturally or is there side effect of the tablets I have taken. And whether this will create problem in conceiving. I am going to get married by next ur. I want this problem to be solved before that. So that I won't get any complication in my pregnancy. Please advice.

The Science of Hygiene

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
The Science of Hygiene
All of us are taught about hygienic living and this subject should be included as a chapter in the curriculum of every school. There are many different kinds of hygiene.

Respiratory hygiene: This is important to prevent cross infection, specifically, from flu and related respiratory illness. One should keep a distance of minimum 3 ft, from a person who is coughing, sneezing or singing. Most respiratory particles are more than 5 microns in size and do not travel a distance of more than 3 ft. This respiratory hygiene, however, will not prevent transmission of the tuberculosis bacteria, which are less than 5 microns and keep circulating in the area.

Hand hygiene: This is the fundamental principle for any disease prevention and the catch phrase is “before and after”, i.e. one should wash hands before and after eating food, touching any infected material, seeing a patient or after normal evacuation of stool in the morning.

Food hygiene: This means maintaining hygiene at home while cutting, serving and eating food. While cutting a vegetable, the surface or the cutting board should be clean and hygienic including the knife, hands, water, utensils etc. If that hygiene is not possible, follow the formula of ‘boil it, heat it, peel it, cook it or forget it’. This means that any food which has been boiled, heated or peeled is safe for eating. Peeling means removing the skin of a fruit such as banana or oranges.

Water hygiene: This involves drinking safe water, safe drinking glass, proper washing of glass, not washing multiple glasses in the same utensil and picking up glasses properly. People often try to pick up four glasses of water at the same time with one finger in each glass.

Sexual hygiene: This involves washing local areas before and after sexual contact.

Body hygiene: This involves 16 upchars, as mentioned in mythology. Out of these 16 basic steps, some are related to body hygiene and they involve washing feet first and then hands followed by mouth and finally the body. Washing of the feet is the most important as they are the ones which carry infections into one’s house.

Cleaning of mouth is cleaning the teeth with one finger, gums with two fingers, tongue with three fingers and palate with thumb.

Abhishekam or the snana of the body involves multiple steps. Ancient steps have been washing the body with milk water (rose water etc.) followed by rubbing with curd (soap), honey (moisturizers), ghee (oil), sugar (the drying agent) and finally with milk water again. This facilitates natural bathing and not dependent on soap.

Nail hygiene: This is also a very important hygiene, especially for food handlers, because they are responsible for causation of water and food disease. It is important that they be given typhoid vaccines and de-worming tablets every three months.

Another important hygiene to be observed at our homes is that of the servants or the help. They are often provided soap at the start of the month and they are supposed to use that bar of soap for a month. If by any chance, they lose that soap in 2-3 weeks’ time, they are apprehensive in asking the owners for soap. As a result, they may wash their hands without soap for the next 2-3 weeks, which includes washing of hands in morning.

Counting 1st day of periods as day 1, day 7-17 is the fertile period when a woman generally ovulates and pregnancy may occur on sex. But chance ovulation may occur before and after that too, so this is not a very sureshot method of contraception either.

Hello lybrate-user- pain during menses is due to improper tone of uterus muscles. Use dashmoolaristha 2 tsp twice daily for 10 days before menses. This single medicine will cure all of your menstrual problems (do not use the medicine more than ten days as the body will become habitual to it and will not respond quickly)

Female Masturbation - 2 Psychological Benefits

BAMS
Sexologist, Nashik
Female Masturbation - 2 Psychological Benefits

Masturbation is a wonderful way to explore your physicality which is healthy as well as beneficial. According to research, women who masturbate regularly are likely to enjoy better sex lives with their partners and are more self confident in nature. Women who indulge in masturbation enjoy a wealth of physical as well as mental health benefits. Following are the benefits that you should be aware of:

Physical benefits of female masturbation:

  1. Prevention of infections: Female masturbation is very important as it prevents cervical infections and also relieves you from infections in the urinary tract. Recent studies suggest that masturbation helps relieve you from pain caused by urinary tract infections. It lubricates the vagina and eliminates harmful bacteria from the cervix. 
  2. Better cardiovascular health: Masturbating promotes improvement in cardiovascular health and also effectively lowers the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. It has been observed that women who masturbate regularly are less vulnerable to coronary heart disease and overall have a better immune system. 
  3. Prevents insomnia: Masturbation can be a natural way to prevent insomnia as there is a subsequent release of hormones and stress involved. During masturbation the hormone called Dopamine increases as the process reaches climax. After orgasm, the hormones called oxytocin are released along with endorphins which consequently help you to sleep better.

Psychological or mental benefits of masturbation

  1. Improves mood and busts stress: Masturbation helps you get rid of depressed feelings and in turn positively affects your sexual life with your partner. It improves your mood and is considered an effective stress buster without any associated side effects.
  2. Helps you accept yourself: Accepting your sexuality is very important as it makes you aware of your body and makes you comfortable with it. It strengthens your love for yourself and increases your confidence. Paying attention to your sexual desires and fulfilling them yourselves is pleasurable as well as healthy. Masturbation can help you know your physical needs and relieve stress associated to your personal and professional life. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Sexologist.

The first period is expected a month after abortion, but sometimes may be delayed by a few days. Hopefully you have checked the completeness of abortion by sonography.

Hi, the main reason for nipple pain is because of hormonal imbalance estrogen and progesterone and as you said you are having irregular periods this needs to be corrected first, can you write back to me in detail since how long are you suffering from PCOD and nature and duration of your periods etc. and you are telling the pain to be on 15th day means during ovulation during this time also there will be more hormonal changes which causes you the pain. Please write back to me in detail.
