Some cases of recurrent miscarriages seem to involve the father having a high incidence of abnormal chromosomes in his sperm, chromosome problems in sperm aren't believed to be a major cause of repeat losses, but it does seem to be a possibility--especially in men whose sperm show abnormal morphology or other markers of low fertility some physicians may recommend that men undergo tests for sperm quality when no other cause for recurrent miscarriages is found. Sperm quality can sometimes, but not always, be improved with lifestyle changes or medications.

Hiccups - Are They Serious?

MD - General Medicine, MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
Hiccups - Are They Serious?

Involuntary contractions of the diaphragm muscle, located at the base of the lungs, causes hiccups. Such spasms cause the sudden, quick closure of the vocal cords, during air inhalation, causing you to gasp with the characteristic ‘hic’ sound. Hiccupping is an uncontrolled reflex action, often triggered for no apparent reason. 

They occur frequently and are more common in newborns and infants.  A hiccupping bout generally continues for a few minutes and subsides on its own.  These spasms generally occur in a constant rhythmic pattern. They are often set off by anything that creates a pressure on or around the diaphragm. These include:

  1. Eating too fast or because of the speedy swallowing of food 
  2. Consumption of exceptionally hot and spicy foods
  3. Indigestion
  4. Consumption of aerated fizzy beverages
  5. Lack of sleep, stress and exhaustion
  6. Pregnancy
  7. Smoking
  8. Excess consumption of Alcohol
  9. Intake of certain medications

How problematic can they be?
In most cases, hiccups stop within a short period of time. Persistent hiccups however, keep occurring for over 48 hours and some continue for over a month, which are also medically termed as Intractable Hiccups. Medical attention is required when hiccups start interfering with sleeping or eating patterns, cause intense breathing difficulty and vomiting. Relentless hiccupping can be painful and extremely tiring. It creates discomfort in the upper abdominal region, and hinders normal routine.

Home remedies for it
Hiccups are generally not serious and most often resolved by simple home remedies. Some of these home remedies include quickly drinking a glass of water, holding your breath for a while or evenly breathing into a paper bag.

Persistent hiccups, that occur at frequent intervals and continue for weeks and months could, however, be indicative of an underlying serious health condition. Therefore, you must visit a doctor if your hiccups do not subside easily.

Incessant hiccups could be symptoms of any type of liver or abdominal disease or lung disease such as pneumonia. Strokes, brain tumours and certain nervous disorders may also cause hiccups; as such disorders create a disturbance in the functioning of the diaphragm. 

Medications
In case of painful, frequent hiccups, the physician may prescribe you some medications. These may include certain types of muscle relaxants, sedatives, analgesics or any other kind of stimulant that can help in providing a remedy.

How can you ‘prevent’ it?
The onset of a bout of hiccups, is mostly self induced, involuntary spasms, thus cannot often be predicted or prevented. However, certain precautions may be taken to avoid recurrence. Abstinence from smoking, controlled drinking, not gulping down food too fast are only a few ways that control the frequency of hiccups. However, it is always advisable to get yourself examined by a medical practitioner in case of a prolonged spell of hiccups.

Hello Doctor. I am Gopal. I have some doubt which i really look to clear this out. I and my GF made 1 month back. It was the next day of her last day of periods, but made it incomplete as she was bleeding during intercourse. None was discharged, but we both were afraid of that liquid moisture which male releases during intercourse. So we decided to take contraceptive pill (Unwanted 72). She again had her periods after 2-3 days of having that pill. Also her periods are not stable. And we are still waiting for her periods. We both are afraid. Please help

The day on which periods start is considered as Day 1 of the cycle. If periods are regular, with bleeding happening every 28 to 32 days, calender method of contraception can be used. According to this method, Days 1-7 of a woman's menstrual cycle are considered infertile, Days 8-19 are considered fertile; considered unsafe for unprotected intercourse and Day 20 through the end of the cycle are considered infertile. So, pregnancy is unlikely in your case.

No chance of pregnancy if he did not penetrate and I believe her panty did not get wet fully. Apart from this pregnancy depends on many other things like periods date and sex date etc. Consult for complete education on hw pregnancy happens nd hw to avoid it naturally.

I am glad that you know that she is afraid and that she is not playing sexual games of playing hard to get. Since she is genuinely afraid take her to a sexologist and have her discuss her fears to overcome whatever the false impression she may have about sex or intercourse. If not, she could do with some sex education and understand that this is normal between a man and a woman in marriage. If the communication between you two is okay, she can talk to you and express her fears and you can help her. Anyway you have to be very gentle with her and literally coax her into wanting sex. Some indian girls have been brought up in very protected environments and may have a lot of inhibitions about exposing their bodies to anyone, let alone a man, and her perception may be of severe abhorrence of sex because of the invasion into her body, and private parts at that. So a lot of care, gentleness and love must be exercised to tease her out of her inhibitions. Remember that the most important sexual organ is the brain: if you work on convincing and seducing her mind by gentle talk, she could be brought out of her anxiety and shyness. If you are effective, you can bring her to a point of no return by enticing the sexual desire, just by your talk! if talk is not enough and she allows you to touch her, then it is possible to drive her libido even more effectively by tapping and stimulating her erogenous zones: lower back, ears, back of the neck, inner thighs, nape of the neck, mouth/lips, nipples, breasts, vagina, and clitoris. You must progress gradually on these zones, little at a time, and when you see that she is receptive and is looking for more you may progress on to the more intense areas. Never hurry, as men are wont to do. And never attempt to do all of it on the same occasion. If she has a small vaginal opening, which can be dealt with even by her gynecologist, and in worse cases, she can have it opened surgically.

Hi, my cousin got married at last year, almost one over but not yet confirmed pregnancy.
What is problem can you help.
It is important to know if either of couple have any known medical problems. The most fertile time of a cycle is mid cycle if a woman has a regular 28-30 day cycle. Intercourse around this time is most effective in achieving pregnancy. I would also suggest she gets a thyroid function test, complete blood count, usg pelvis done. She should also start taking folic acid supplements 5mg once daily.

How Endometriosis Leads to Infertility and Miscarriages?

MBBS, MS - Obstetrics & Gynecology, Fellowship in Infertility (IVF Specialist)
Gynaecologist, Aurangabad
How Endometriosis Leads to Infertility and Miscarriages?

There can be a number of reasons that lead to infertility in women. Endometriosis is one of them. It is a benign condition where the endometrium, which includes the tissues that form the lining inside the uterus, grows outside the uterus. Apart from infertility, it may also cause pelvic pain in women.

There are no such symptoms of endometriosis apart from pelvic pain and it cannot be detected without surgery. Thus, it is very difficult to diagnose this disease and state how common it is. However, research says that the prevalence of this disease in women in their reproductive age is between 3 to 10 per cent.

It is found that endometriosis sometimes leads to infertility. Here is how:

  • Abdominal Adhesions and Infertility: Normally, the endometriosis implants develop in the abdomen. Then the body surrounds them with connective tissues. The reason for doing so is isolating the implants, so that they cannot harm your body. Now, sometimes these adhesions can create a blockage in the opening of the fallopian tube or may also pinch off the fallopian tube. This will result in obstruction in the fertilisation of egg and the sperm and thus fertilization will not take place; so there are no chances of conceiving. These obstructions when diagnosed can be treated with surgery.
  • Secretions from Implants: Endometrium plays a vital role in conception where the tissues secrete a wide variety of hormones and nutrients. Now, the endometrial implant also functions in the same way and secretes those hormones. The difference is that it does not deposit them in the lumen of the womb, and it is released in the abdominal cavity. In these substances, there may be some hormones that are responsible for infertility.
  • Prostaglandins: Prostaglandins are other hormones that are secreted by the endometrium normally. It helps in a lot of body processes that include various stages of menstrual cycle and pregnancy. This hormone is required for a lot of functions such as ovulation, sperm mobility, and regression of corpus luteum, immune interaction, menstrual cramps and contraction of the uterus at birth.

Just like the endometrium, the implants also secrete these hormones. And, the problem that is caused by the implant secreted prostaglandin hormone is that they are released in the abdomen and not in the womb. Moreover, they are not secreted at the right time, thus sending a wrong message to the brain.

A woman with a few days of pregnancy may face a miscarriage because the ovary will get a signal to start the menstrual cycle, and the womb lining where the egg is implanted will be expelled.

Sir my wife has sugar of 260 is there any chance that our baby get diabetes during pregnancy. Now she is not pregnant.
If a pregnant lady has diabetes the baby may have structural anomalies of heart. It may have increased weight l leading to difficulties in normal delivery. And after delivery it may decreased blood sugars for some time .may need to be kept in nursery. Later on in life it may develop diabetes if weight and diet control is not strict.
