There has never been any issues in the period. I got my periods last on 23 July 2018 which lasted for 5 days. I had a protected sex on 31st Aug. I also consumed an Ipill to be more safe. This morning I found little bleeding. Few drops in the morning and few sometimes back. Is there something I need to worry about.

A very common side effect of taking i-pill is a significant alteration in periods –they can either be early or be delayed. Most women will experience withdrawal bleeding at the scheduled or expected dates, while some may get menses within 5 days. If you get periods earlier then expected, you can be assured that pregnancy has not taken place, but in case of delay in periods, it is best to take a pregnancy test one week over the expected date. This is largely a rare occurrence.

Laparoscopic Surgery - How Does It Help You?

Laparoscopic Surgery - How Does It Help You?

Laparoscopy is one of the most common procedures for diagnosing and removing endometriosis. Instead of giving a big incision, this procedure of surgery uses lightweight instrument through a small hole or incision. There could be one or more incisions based on the number of instruments that require access inside the body. This procedure involves the use of a camera to ascertain endometriosis as well as treat it in the same sitting. This brings drastic improvement in infertility as well as pain associated with the endometriosis. If a cyst is found in the ovary, laparoscopic surgeon removes it very delicately without causing any harm to the normal ovary, as a part of the Laparoscopic Surgery for Endometriosis. 

How does the procedure go? 

Eating and drinking should be suspended before 8 hours of the laparoscopic surgery. The doctor takes a call on whether to give a general or local anesthesia. Mostly, General anaesthesia is given during such procedures. A person specialised in Gynecological Endoscopy ( Gynaec Laparoscopic Surgeon) is the best to perform such a procedure. 

How is the procedure performed? 

The abdomen is first inflated with gas with the help of a needle. It pushes the abdominal wall from the organs to give a clear visibility to a surgeon. The laparoscopic Camera is then pushed through an incision or a set of incisions to examine the internal organ. If the scar tissue or endometriosis needs to be removed, a doctor can use one of the several laparoscopic techniques such as electrocautery, excision etc. Post the surgery, the incision is closed with stitches. The whole procedure usually takes 30-60 minutes depending upon the severity of endometriosis. 

Why is laparoscopy done? 

  1. If the endometriosis pain has returned after a hormone therapy 
  2. If there is a growing endometriotic cyst 
  3. If the scar tissue found on the pelvic wall poses a threat on fertility 
  4. If the endometriosis interferes with other organs such as the bladder etc. 
  5. If the pain during menses ( dysmenorrhoea) refuses to subside 

Duration of hospital stay: 
Operations such as these are usually conducted at the outpatient facility owing to their less risky nature. A patient need not spent more than a day in the hospital. Rarely in severe cases of endometriosis overnight hospitalisation may also be required. One can successfully return to normal work within 1 week of the surgery. 

Post-surgical recovery: Once the laparoscopy is done, the next steps of treatment are decided based on the patient's age and severity of endometriosis. Few hormonal medicines are advised according to the desire for fertility etc. If a patient is over and above 35 years of age, the risk of miscarriages double. Since the quality of egg declines by the year, it makes sense to undergo infertility treatment such as the in vitro fertilization, intake of fertility drugs, insemination etc. If, however, the patient is below 35 years of age, makes sense to conceive naturally first and consult a doctor simultaneously. A routine check-up post-laparoscopic surgery on alternate six months for a year will keep any risks at bay.

You should have a valid reason for termination. For the same you will have to visit a gynaecologist who can examine you and advise you the best suited method of abortion. Generally the procedure are safe but some kind of side effects and disadvantages are always associated with.

How Can You Prevent Fallopian Tube Cancer At An Early Age?

MBBS, M.S., MCh - Surgical Oncology

How Can You Prevent Fallopian Tube Cancer At An Early Age?

Fallopian tube cancer is a rare type of cancer observed among women. It originates in the fallopian tubes which connect the uterus and the ovary. Usually the cells in our body grow and split up to replace damaged or old cells. This growth is regulated by the body, and once it has produced enough cells to substitute the old ones, normal cells stop splitting up. Problem occurs when this procedure is disrupted due to abnormal and uncontrolled growth of the cells, resulting in the formation of a mass of tissues known as a tumor.

Fallopian tube cancer occurs when an unusual or abnormal growth of the malignant cells is observed in one or both of the fallopian tubes. A majority of these cancers are papillary serous adenocarcinomas which typically originate in postmenopausal women. Although the cause behind fallopian tube cancer has not been determined yet, early symptoms include- unexplained bleeding from the vagina, white or pink discharge from the vagina, pain or swelling in the lower abdomen etc. Treatment for fallopian tube cancer depends on a number of factors such as symptoms, diagnosis, genetic and medical history, stage of the cancer. However, cancer treatments can be very strenuous and emotionally draining, so the best way to fight cancer is to prevent it from the very beginning.

If you’re diagnosed at an early age, you may be able to steer away from the cancer following these tips-

  1. Healthy diet- Eating healthy can reduce your chances of being affected with cancer. Consumption of adequate protein (20-30 grams per meal) and healthy fat like dairy products, fishes rich in omega 3 can help your hormones stay balanced.
  2. Exercise- Exercise or any sort of physical activity can optimise your hormone levels and help you reduce weight, which in turn lower the risk of obesity. It also helps reduce chances of ovarian cancer or any reproductive cancer among women.
  3. Managing your stress level- Stress adversely affects your hormones. Indulging in activities like yoga and meditation reduces your stress level and helps normalize the hormones responsible for causing stress. Stress is an agent that promotes inflammation in the body, a major cause of cancer. So the idea is to manage stress effectively, which in turn would lower inflammation.
  4. Gynecologic surgery- If you encounter any hormonal imbalance or complication, you should immediately go for a checkup. Before the condition gets worse, it is advisable to have the condition removed. If you’ve had any gynecologic surgery such as a tubal ligation or hysterectomy, there’s a good chance that you may not develop this type of cancer. Hysterectomy is a surgical procedure where the uterus or cervix is removed. Tubal ligation, on the other hand, is a method of surgically tying the fallopian tubes. In some cases where the patient is at a greater risk of developing fallopian tube cancer, the doctor may recommend removal of both the fallopian tubes and the ovary by performing salpingo-oophorectomy.

Cancer treatment can be very expensive and upsetting for the patient as well as his/her loved ones. These tips will guide you through and help you prevent cancer at the very early age.

Very very less chances but taking i-pill is very bad way of contraception, stop it. This is not for routine and can be dangerous sometimes.

Health tip;
In a study led by Dr Lisa Moran, from the University of Adelaide’s Robinson Research Institute and Monash University’s Monash Centre for Health Research Implementation, researchers looked at the relationship between vitamin D and PCOS.

Low vitamin D commonly found in overweight women

They found PCOS alone is not associated with vitamin D deficiency but that low vitamin D is commonly found in overweight women.

Dr Moran says the study was the first time researchers looked at the interactions between vitamin D, inflammation and mood disorders in women with PCOS.

Dr Moran said the common endocrine condition affects up to 21 per cent of reproductive-aged women and it can be associated with a wide range of reproductive, metabolic and psychological side effects.

“Depression, anxiety and inflammation are common side effects experienced by women with PCOS, and vitamin D deficiency has been associated with both mood disorders and inflammation in the general population. So we wanted to investigate the relationship between vitamin D deficiency and PCOS,” she said.

Not directly linked to vitamin D deficiency

Dr Moran said they found PCOS is not directly linked to vitamin D deficiency.

“We found for the first time that there is an association between vitamin D levels with both depression and inflammation in overweight women, regardless of whether they have PCOS or not,” said Dr Moran.

“We also found that vitamin D deficiency was common in women generally and there were no differences in vitamin D levels between women with and without PCOS,” she said.

Dr Moran said these findings support further research into treating depression with vitamin D supplements, particularly in women with PCOS.

“Further research is needed into the link between vitamin D, inflammation and depression in order to develop the best prevention and treatment measures, but this is an important finding,” she said.

The findings of this research were published in the journal Gynecological Endocrinology.
