I am 30yrs &mother of two child. I am having severe pain in my left breast. What to do.

DGO, MBBS
Sexologist,
You should do ultrasound examination of breasts. Breast pain is a common problem if it occurs before periods, because it happens due to hormonal changes, however if the pain stays all through the month or if you can feel some lump/swelling then you must do ultrasound examination of breasts. For pain you can take paracetamol tablets, also wearing a well fitting bra may help.

Fistula-in-Ano - Understanding The Ayurvedic Perspective On It!

Fistula-in-Ano - Understanding The Ayurvedic Perspective On It!

Ayurveda takes a holistic approach to treat any disease. It aims to treat fistula-in-ano with a combination of herbs, good lifestyle, healthy diet etc. Ayurveda suggests that fistula occurs due to the disparity of the 3 doshas. The treatment aims at balancing the doshas and healing the condition from within without any side effects.

What is anal fistula?
Anal fistula is an opening other than the normal opening of the anus. Most people face oozing of stool and pus from the other opening. The surrounding area of the anus becomes painful and tender. If the opening closes for a few days, the pus gets trapped leading to fever and abscess. It is, therefore, important to get rid of the mucus and the pus completely and heal the fistula. In case of multiple openings, modern medicine suggests surgery to get rid of the situation. Ayurveda on the other hand, uses oils, herbs, and other such non-inflammatory means to cure the condition.

Digestive fire from the Ayurvedic viewpoint:
Digestion only happens smoothly when the Jatharagni/Agni is strong. With natural food and supplements and herbs it is entirely possible to balance the digestive fire. Raw fruits, vegetables, and nuts are the ideal diet to heal this condition. Some foods to avoid to ensure that the aggravation of fistula doesn’t take place include aerated drinks, processed foods, milk and milk related products. The herbs that are prescribed by the Ayurvedic practitioner should be continued for at least 3-6 months.

Ayurvedic treatment for fistula-inano:
Ayurveda has a very precise dosage of herbs mentioned in the ancient books. It is suggested that two tablespoons of Triphala Guggul and 1 tablespoon of Vara Churna should be consumed daily, twice a day, Nirgundi oil should be applied locally every day and 2 tablespoons of curcumin should be consumed daily.

  1. Triphala Guggul: This formulation consists of two very important herbs- Guggul and Triphala. Both these herbs helps the body’s defence mechanism. This formulation is anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial in nature. Both the herbs help in toning the gastrointestinal tract, streamline the flow of bile and aids the intestine to effectively eradicate bodily waste.
  2. Vara Churna: Vara Churna is a formulation that contains several herbs such as amalaki, bibhitaka, haritaki etc. This formulation helps clean the colon and strengthen the GIT. This formulation is effective for vata, kapha, and pitta. Vara Churna is extremely effective for rectifying constipation, aiding blood circulation improving liver function and balancing the blood pressure.
  3. Nirgundi Oil: This oil is made up from the herb Nigundo. This herb is pungent, bitter and astringent in flavour. It is a natural antibiotic and is an anti-inflammatory. This oil can relax the muscles, reduce congestion and pain.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Health Benefits Of Honey And Cinnamon

Health benefits of honey and cinnamon

The health benefits of honey and cinnamon include the following:

Immune system: honey and cinnamon paste is good for boosting the immune system, eliminating chronic fatigue and increasing the life span of people. It can also be used for treating colds and influenza. This is partially due to the antioxidants found in both honey and cinnamon which can combine to combat the free radicals in the body’s organ systems.

Diabetes: cinnamon contains antioxidant flavonoids whose effect closely resembles that of insulin, meaning that it can encourage glucose out of the bloodstream and into the cells where it is needed for functional energy source. Energy, as a pure source of natural sugar, does not cause nearly the fluctuation in blood sugar levels that many artificial sources of sugar do, and cinnamon’s effects, when combined with honey, show a steady use of glucose by the body, and an improvement in type 2 diabetes management.

Cancer: the phytochemicals that are found in such impressive amounts in honey have been linked to preventing cancer, while cinnamon has certain anti-tumor properties that can also decrease the chances of metastasis or the spread of cancer through tumorous growth. Certain acids within honey also directly shut down the activity of two enzymes, lipoxygenase and phosphatidylinositol-specific phospholipase c, which have both been linked to producing cancerous materials in the body.

Itching: another health benefit of honey and cinnamon include relief from insect bites. A paste made of honey and cinnamon is often used to treat insect bites and relieve inflammation at the source. Cinnamon is considered an anti-inflammatory substance, while honey is an antiseptic and therapeutic component of many beauty and cosmetic products, so their combination works on all aspects of skin irritation and insect bites at the same time, while simultaneously keeping you from developing infections.

Digestion: honey and cinnamon can help to increase the health and functionality of the digestive system. It can remove gas from the stomach and intestine and treat stomachache, excess flatulence, indigestion and bladder infections. Regular consumption of cinnamon and honey will help in maintaining healthy digestion, which protects the gastrointestinal system from a number of more serious conditions.

Arthritis: honey and cinnamon are also beneficial in providing relief from arthritis. Regular intake of honey and cinnamon paste helps to maintain bone health and relieves joint pain. You can also mix honey and cinnamon powder in warm water and enjoy the same resulting health boosts.

Skin care: the benefits of honey and cinnamon extend to skin care as well, where minor skin infections and pimples can be treated with a simple application of a paste formed from these two precious foods. This can be done on actual wounds, or on the skin as a general spread due to its anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, and antioxidant characteristics, which can reduce the appearance of age-related spots and wrinkles by reducing the impact of free radicals in the skin.

Heart disorders: honey and cinnamon are used for reducing cholesterol levels and thus providing additional protection to the health to your heart. A high cholesterol level (ldl or “bad” cholesterol) can result in atherosclerosis or plaque buildup on the walls of arteries and vessels, thereby increasing the chances of a clot forming that can result in a heart attack or a stroke.

Weight loss: a mixture of honey and cinnamon in warm water is considered a good weight loss tool. Of course, like any other weight loss remedy, results are only seen when you combine it with a controlled diet and regular exercise.

Hair care: honey and cinnamon also nurture hair, reduce hair loss and actually stimulate hair growth.

Dental care: both honey and cinnamon are individually used for dental care. A mixture prepared from the two is also useful in dental care, particularly in eliminating bad breath and toothaches.

Hello, If pregnancy is ruled out then the delay is likely to be stress induced. You may wait for a week more for menses to start else can opt for a progesterone withdrawal bleed to resume your menses.

Exercises for Spasm and Back Pain

Exercises for Spasm and Back Pain

A pain in the back can make even small, daily activities like bathing, getting dressed or even bending down to pick up things difficult. A quick and thorough treatment of such problems can prevent the problem from worsening. In such cases, there is an obvious need to exercise the lower back muscles. However, before performing these exercises, a lot of preparation is required to get your back into shape. Taking enough time to warm up and stretch the muscles can make a significant difference between helping and making the problem worse.

Why should you exercise your lower back? 
The main reason for exercising the lower back region is to make it move gently through all types of motion so that it can have a greater range of movement during daily activities. Core strengthening exercises and stretches are recommended to prevent back pain. While doing these exercises, try avoiding activities that cause pain or discomfort. Pain is a sign of problem and one must be careful to avoid it during these exercises as it shows that you are hurting yourself in some way or the other. 

Activities to be followed:
The following activities can help in increasing the flow of blood to the sore areas of your back and prepare for more activity, thus reducing the chance of aggravation.

  1. Soak in a tub of water: Fill a tub with water to a level that you will tend to float and thus reduce the force of gravity on your spine and muscles. Epsom salt can be added to relax the muscles. Do not to sit up too high in as it can cause stress to the low back discs. Slide down low enough so that the back is allowed to flatten a small amount, thus reducing disc and muscle stress.
  2. Use local heat to reduce muscle spasms: Soak a large towel with hot water and wring it out. Place it on the low back where your pain is located. You can also place a damp towel in the microwave oven long enough so as to heat the towel. Be careful not to overheat the towel. Place the warm cloth on the area of your pain for about ten minutes.
  3. Hip slides: Lie on your back. First move one hip and then the other towards your shoulders. Raise your right hip towards the right shoulder and then the left hip towards the left shoulder. Raise one of your hips and then the other up off the floor so that your back twists a little. Raise the right hip off from the floor and then do the same with your left hip.
  4. Windmill: This is a general back exercise. Create big circles with your arms by rotating them in clockwise and anticlockwise circles.

These activities are an excellent way to reduce back spasms and the stress on your back.

I do not want to use condom and want sex but I also do not want to be pregnant wat to do.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology

I do not want to use condom and  want sex but I also do not want to be  pregnant wat to do.
Ideal for you is oral contraceptive pill if you have regular sex like novelon or femilon to be taken for 21 days in a monthly cycle from Day 2 of menses. Practising safe period is another solution for you but it is not full proof method and highly unreliable. If a women’s menstrual cycle varies from 26days to 31days cycle, The shortest cycle (26days) minus18days=8th day. The longest cycle (31days) minus 10days=21st day Thus, 8th to 21st day of each cycle counting from first day of menstrual period is considered as fertile period. That is UNSAFE PERIOD. Period other than this fertile period in a menstrual cycle is considered as SAFE PERIOD.

Hello, I am 36 years old and its my first pregnancy, 30th week pregnancy going on, Recently I went through Sugar Test, FBS value is 81.3 mg/dl and PPBS value 154.6 mg/dl. This value was same as earlier test. Looking for advice which can be helpful. Pls suggest weather I have to visit diabetologist. Also pls advice weather I should go for HBA1C test or not.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Your glucose levels seem to be normal. There is no Gestational diabetes. The diagnosis of GDM is made if there is at least one abnormal value (≥92, 180 and 153 mg/dl for fasting, one-hour and two-hour plasma glucose concentration respectively), after a 75 g oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT). Since you have tested fasting and Pp values, it is better if you get a Oral Glucose Tolerance Test done in a lab with 75 g of glucose. That will give a clear idea. If test shows normal values then there is no reason to worry. If you have any doubts please do come back. You can take fruits, but restrict excess carbs in diet. Thanks.

My wife is pregnant doctor told that cervix is so small then need to do stitches is really necessary?
If cervical length is less than 2.5 cm it is called as short cervix. This can lead to cervical incompetence, opening up of the cervix as weight of fetus increases and loss of pregnancy. Cervical stitch can help this.

Pain during intercourse in a female can be due to various reasons like cervical infections, vaginismus, malignancies etc. Pain due to curved penis is less likely a cause for pain. If pain is persistent do ask your partner to consult a gynecologist for a detailed examination.

Papaya has no effect. As you have taken unwanted 72 only in rare cases it fails. Just look for period. For future learn about family planning methods and use one of them instead of using emergency pill.

U shd find out the cause of pcos whether it is bcoz of insulin resistance or thyroid if it is dt thyroid then wt reduction is a difficult task but if you continue with reg exercise do walk and take proper care of your diet with thyroid under control then slowly you will get result. Initially it is frustrating as it does not shed off fast but in due course it works. Take proper dietician advice regarding calorie count.

The way you are describing, it doesnot seem to be pregnancy, still you can undergo ultrasonography of pelvis once for better diagnosis. Being 40+ in age it may be pre-menopausal effect so kindly undergo better medical attention if you want to plan a pregnancy, as already your gynecological reports are not normal (as your right tube is blocked). You can share all your reports till date and how much homeopathy can help you in this case can also be explained to you incase you wish to undergo homeopathic medications.

IVF Protocol - When You Have Low Ovarian Reserve

MD
IVF Specialist, Delhi
IVF Protocol - When You Have Low Ovarian Reserve

The available eggs in the ovaries at a time are collectively called an ovarian reserve. Low reserve happens when the production of eggs reduces. This affects the chances of pregnancy. The general cause of low reserves can be aging ovaries. In such cases, the ovary may be healthy and functioning even if the reserve is low. Production of eggs lower as a woman ages. A woman starts with 25,000 to 5,00,000 eggs at puberty and ends up with 1000 eggs at menopause.

Causes:
Low reserves are caused by

  1. Production of eggs decreases: Chromosomal abnormalities like Turner syndrome (lack of two X chromosomes) and genetic anomalies like Fragile X can decrease egg production.
  2. Ovarian tissue damage: Rough torsion, endometriosis triggered ovarian cysts, malignant or benign tumours, surgical removal of ovary or any other part of it, chemotherapy or radiation, pelvic adhesions, immunological problems or high BMI (Body Mass Index) can destroy the ovarian tissues.

IVF Protocols:
If a woman has low ovarian reserves, then she will be put on the either of the following protocols:

  1. Short GnRHa Flare: Gonadotrophin releasing-hormone-agonist (GnRHa) like Lupron, Nafarelin, Synarel or Buserelin is administered. This therapy is initiated at the onset of menstruation. The goal of the treatment is to stimulate the release of the follicular stimulating hormone (FSH) which augments the ovarian follicular growth.
  2. Combined Clomiphene or Gonadotrophin/Letrozole Stimulation: Older women are mostly administered this protocol. But it is strongly advised not to, as this protocol can potentially harm the egg or the embryo.
  3. Mid-follicular GnRH-antagonist protocol: Once the GnRHa-agonist protocol is commenced, the GnRH-antagonist is given several days later. Once the follicles reach the size of 12mm, GnRHa antagonists like Ganirelix, Orgalutran, Cetrotide and Cetrorelix are added. These drugs stop the pituitary from secreting the luteinizing hormone (FSH leads to secretion of this hormone).
  4. Long GnRHa Pituitary Down Regulation Protocol: This is the usual approach to deal with low ovarian reserves.
  5. Agonist/Antagonist Conversion Protocol: This protocol inhibits FSH production. This protocol generally yields good results. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

Dear lybrate-user the cause for irregular menses is hormonal imbalance which has to be corrected. The pain may be due to congestion of uterus which will get itself relieved after delivery usually. The condtion has to be treated.
