How to Manage Painful Menstrual Cramps?

Painful menstrual cramps is a condition during periods in which a woman or girl has crampy lower abdominal pain, sharp or aching pain that comes and goes, or the pains which radiates to lower back and thighs. In some women or girl the cramps are associated with nausea, loose stools, headache and dizziness. Many women or girls have painful menstrual cycles.

During menstrual cycles, the uterus tries to expel out its lining and a hormone called progesterone is responsible for the uterine muscle contraction. The more the prostaglandin level, more painful the cramps.

Sometimes the pains are moderate to severe making it hard to do normal household work, job, or school-related activities during each menstrual cycle. Painful periods or menstruation is the leading cause of absence from school and work among women in their teens and 20s.

In medical terms it is called as 'Dysmenorrhea.'

There are two categories of Dysmenorrhea.

  1. Primary Dysmenorrhea

  2. Secondary Dysmenorrhea

Primary Dysmenorrhea is menstrual pain that occurs around the time that menstrual periods first begin in healthy young women. In most cases, it is not related to a specific problem with the uterus or other pelvic organs.

Secondary Dysmenorrhea is menstrual pain that develops later in women who have had normal periods. It is often related to problems in the uterus or other pelvic organs, like

  • Endometriosis

  • Fibroids

  • Intrauterine device (IUD)

  • Pelvic inflammatory disease

  • Premenstrual syndrome (PMS)

  • Sexually transmitted infection

  • Stress and anxiety

Home remedies to manage the Menstrual Cramps-

  • Take a hot water bag and give hot fermentation to lower abdomen, lower back or thighs

  • Do light circular massage with your fingertips around your lower belly area.

  • Eat light but frequent meals.

  • Healthy nutritional diet is a great help

  • Side lying position with knee folded helps to relieve the pain

  • Practice relaxation techniques such as meditation or yoga

  • Take warm showers or baths.

  • Walk or exercise regularly, including pelvic rocking exercises

  • Loose weight if overweight

When to consult a doctor?

  • Severe pain associated with nausea/ vomiting

  • Increased or foul-smelling vaginal discharge

  • Fever and pelvic pain

  • Sudden or severe pain, especially if your period is more than one week late and if sexually active

  • No relief with routine medications

  • If intrauterine device (IUD) is inserted

  • Heavy bleeding with clots

  • Pain occurs at times other than menstruation, begins more than 5 days before period, or continues after period is over.

Super Fact of the Day: It takes longer to lose a muscle, than it takes to gain.

Super Fact of the Day: It takes longer to lose a muscle, than it takes to gain.
To lose new muscles it takes twice as long if you stop working out as opposed to gaining it. It’s comparatively easier to build new muscle tissues and get your muscles in shape which in fact should be motivation to get started in the gym.

Would you like to share this interesting fact with family or friends? Go ahead and Share!

Hello sir, meri shaadi hue 5 saal ho gaye hai abe tak koi baccha nahi hua hai. Kya ab hum ko treatment karna chiye.
Yes. If you're younger than 35 and haven't become pregnant after one year of unprotected sex, it's time to consult a fertility doctor. If you're age 35 or older, it's best to see a specialist after about six months of trying to conceive. Even if you've never been diagnosed with a specific medical condition, certain symptoms or physical characteristics can indicate a problem that could affect your fertility. There are certain investigations need to be done after taking your detail medical history, after which your doctor would be able to give you the treatment plan.

I delivered my 3 kg 300 gm baby in a private hospital. There I got mediolateral and midline episiotomy. After an hour as the doctor said my stitches broke open andi was also leaking huge amounts of blood. Dr. said they were huge clots formed which came out and she manually did removed some clots. I do not know how many were they .but the blood was enough to fill half a bucket. And she re stitched me. She said I had problems within hygiene .thats y stitches were getting broken. However .i do not find it true as none of my doctors or any other doctor .who saw me that day or day after delivery said so. Also .post delivery I found out that I had rectovaginal fistula. Due to episiotomy or whatever the doctor did while my delivery. Now I am suffering from rectovaginal fistula. All my stitches have broken again. I saw another doctor and was kept on antibiotics for a week in the hospital. After that I was discharged .saying that stitches and the fistula would heal by itself. .earlier I was passing all the stools through vagina. But now .i am able to pass 60 percent through anus and 40 percent through vagina. But its been 2 weeks and now I am not finding any more improvement. Also the broken stitches have healed. But I find a very small skin patch that is less than 2 cm between my anus and vagina. And a v shaped slit at the side. That is scaring me as it will open up again. Because there is very less of skin in that area. I was told to wait for 6 weeks for the fistula to get healed on its own and. I do not have any clue about stitches. What to do. I am so depressed. As I get pain sometimes in that slit area. And bowels coming from my vagina. Its so scary. Please help.

Getting scanty menses is definitely a problem & will lead to many problems like skin diseases, excessive heat in body & weight gain. For proper periods you need to carefully plan your diet & medicine.

Yes you can definitely have sex during pregnancy provided your wife is having all normal as per her Obstetrician. Also there are some does and don'ts for sexual relationship during pregnancy for that you and your wife need to meet the expert sexologist directly. You may connect me either online or in person for proper understanding and guidance if you are interested. If you want all safe and quality sexual enjoyment this is required.

Alternatives for Improving Smile

Alternatives for Improving Smile

A beautiful smile plays a very vital role in enhancing the overall beauty of face. Rotated, stained and maL-placed tooth can cause major aesthetic/cosmetic and psychological problems in teenage and young adults. Mid-line teeth gap, rotated teeth, crowded teeth, stained teeth, broken tooth edges and wearing tooth edges are the most common cosmetic problems that our patients report to us. Dynamic advancements in the field of dentistry has come across with the solution of majority of cosmetic problems.

Here we discuss the various options available for improving smile:

1. Veneers: They are thin pieces of porcelain or plastic glued to the front of your teeth. For teeth that are severely discoloured, chipped or misshapen and gaps between the teeth, veneers create a durable and pleasing smile. A veneer is made to match the colour and shape of your tooth. Not everyone is a candidate for professional teeth whitening. Bleaching is not recommended if you have tooth colored fillings, crowns, caps or bonding in your front teeth. There are two types of veneers:

a. Porcelain (indirect) veneers, which must first be created to fit your teeth in a dental laboratory and require two visits to the dentist. Porcelain veneers are generally stronger, while composite veneers are less expensive. With porcelain veneers, the dentist takes an impression of the tooth and sends it to the dental lab for fabrication of the veneer, usually after the front of the tooth has been reduced.

b. Composite (direct) veneers, which are bonded to your tooth enamel in a single visit. With either method, the tooth is prepared for bonding by roughening the front surface with mild etching solution. The veneer can then be bonded to your tooth using a dental bonding cement.

2. Bonding: It uses composite resin to restore chipped or broken teeth, fill in gaps and reshape or recolor your smile. After applying a very mild etching solution that slightly roughens the surface of your teeth and permits the bonding material to adhere, your dentist applies the resin and sculpts, colours and shapes it to provide a pleasing result. A high-intensity light hardens the material, which is then finely polished. Bonding agents are used in treatment of midline gap closures, fractured tooth restoration, wearing teeth edges.

3. Whitening: Some people are born with teeth that are more yellow than others. Others have teeth that yellow with age. Your natural tooth colour can also be affected by many factors. Surface stains (called extrinsic stains by dentists) and discolouration can be caused by:
a. Tobacco (whether smoked or chewed)
b. Drinking tea, coffee, or red wine
c. Eating highly pigmented foods such as cherries and blueberries
d. Accumulation of tartar deposits, which result from plaque that has hardened
e. Treatment with the antibiotic tetracycline during the time when teeth are forming
f. Yellowing or greying of the teeth as part of the aging process
g. Trauma to the teeth that may result in the death of the tooth's nerve, giving the tooth a brown, grey or black colour.

Whitening/Bleaching is a simple procedure where whitening agents are applied over the tooth surface in order to chemically change the colour of tooth. It can either be a single visit clinical procedure or multiple application home procedure under the guidance of your dentist.

Will my newly whitened teeth stain?
Any tooth can stain, including the veneers and bonds mentioned above. To help prevent stains from coming back, avoid smoking, coffee, tea, red wine and heavily coloured foods. And brush your teeth twice a day with a whitening toothpaste. If you wish to discuss about any specific dental problem, you can consult a specilized dentist and ask a free question.

Akansha, you will not get pregnant after taking I pill for three consecutive days. But I hope you realise that you are playing havoc with your health. This is not at all desirable. You probably have no idea of periods, conception and contraception. This can take a toll on your physical and mental health later on. I will sincerely advise you to get an elementary knowledge of these important issues. Please contact me if you would like to know about this.
