Cyst must be functional. Or remnant of previous eggs. It will go naturally without any medicines. Just repeat USG after one month.

As a rule hormones in birth control pills should not be taken for more than 6 months, due to cancer risk at age 50, our suggestion to every woman is, once family is complete, get iucd fitted as it can be removed if due to any reason, the woman feels that she is bleeding more. Some daring ones do opt for ligation but in that case the woman needs at least 1 month rest, as it may look like 1 stitch from outside but internally the operation is as good/ bad as an abdominal appendix operation.

My husband has HIV? Can I still get pregnant if we have physical relation with him?
Dear if your husband is hiv positive, pregnancy can occur like a normal person on having sex. Before that pl check your hiv status. If you are not hiv positive then possibility of you and your unborn contracting hiv is very high.

She could be having fungal infection which is causing the itching. She can apply surfaz - sn cream 2-3 times a day locally. If there is no relief then get her examined by a gynaecologist.

This drug will prevent your pregnancy. But you should regularize your periods by taking the drugs and then consult doctor whether you can stop it now and try for pregnancy.

This question is for gynecologist. Doctor only in summers I noticed that I get itching in my vagina. What should I do?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist,
India had hot and humid climate and due to this people tend to sweat a lot in summer and rainy months. The sweating is also present in the hairy region around the arm pit and private parts. Due to this dampness, there is a recurrence of fungal infections again and again which manifest as itching. Even if you do not have fungal infection, the damness can also make one itch. The best remedy for this is : 1. wear cotton free flowing clothes to allow flow of air in and around private aprts 2. wear cotton loose underwear 3. Do not wear synthetic underclothes as it prevents the sweat from getting dried 4. If you feel sweaty, you may have a bath 2 times a day 5. Keep the hairs around private parts trimmed so that the sweat evaporates faster. 6. If you sweat a lot,or even after bath, wipe the vulval area from front to back.......wiping the private part area from back to front can drag bacteria from anal region to vagina dn cause itching, and fungal or mixed infections. 7. If you are sweating a lot, avoid wearing underclothes at sleep, and if required use some dusting powder in groin region

Health benefits of papayas

1. Lowers cholesterol

#papaya is rich in fibre, #vitaminc and antioxidants which prevent cholesterol build up in your arteries. Too much cholesterol build-up can lead to several heart diseases including heart attack and hypertension.

2. Helps in weight loss

Those looking to lose weight must include papaya in their diet as it is very low in #calories. The fibre content in papaya leaves you feeling full and also clears your bowel movement making your weight loss regime easier.

3. Boosts your immunity

Your immunity system acts as a shield against various infections that can make you really sick. A single papaya contains more than 200% of your daily requirement of vitamin c, making it great for your immunity.

4. Good for diabetics

Papaya is an excellent #food option for diabetics as it has a low-sugar content even though it is sweet to taste. Also, people who don't have diabetes can eat papaya to prevent it from happening.

Papaya is rich in vitamin a which helps protect your vision from degenerating. Nobody wants to lose their ability to see due to diseases like age-related macular degeneration, and eating papayas will ensure that you do not see a day where you cannot see.

6. Protects against arthritis

Arthritis can be a really debilitating disease and people who have it may find their quality of life reduced significantly. Eating papayas are good for your bones as they have anti-inflammatory properties along with vitamin c which helps in keeping various forms of arthritis at bay. A study published in annals of the rheumatic diseases showed that people who consumed foods low in vitamin c were three times more likely to have arthritis than those who didn't.

7. Improves digestion

In today's times, it is nearly impossible to avoid eating foods that are bad for your digestive system. Often we find ourselves eating junk food or restaurant food prepared in excessive quantities of oil. Eating a papaya daily can make up for such occasional mistakes, as it has a digestive enzyme known as papain along with fibre which helps improve your digestive health.

8. Help ease menstrual pain

Women who are experiencing menstrual pain should help themselves to several servings of papaya as an enzyme called papain helps in regulating and easing flow during menstrual periods.

9. Prevents signs of ageing

All of us would love to stay young forever, but no one in this world has managed to do it. Still, healthy habits like eating a papaya daily will prolong the process and may make you look 5 years younger than you are. Papaya is rich in vitamin c, vitamin e and antioxidants like beta-carotene which helps prevent your skin from free radical damage keeping wrinkles and other signs of ageing at bay.

10. Prevents cancer

Papaya is a rich source of antioxidants, phytonutrients and flavonoids that prevent your cells from undergoing free radical damage. Some studies have also linked the consumption papaya to reduced risk of colon and prostate cancer.

11. Help reduce stress

After working hard for the whole day, it is a good idea to come home to a plate papayas. The wonder fruit is rich in several nutrients like vitamin c which can keep you free from stress. According to a study conducted at the university of Alabama, found that 200 mg of vitamin c can help regulate the flow of stress hormones in rats.

Hi, these tests are normally once you conceive and may be later during pregnancy if required. So, there is nothing to worry about so far as your edd is 7th sept. So until due to some other reason, your c. Section shouldn't be held around that specific date. Rest, you can also talk directly to your doctor to clear your doubts.

Me and my girlfriend had sex 42 days ago and she had to take i-pill on 2 consecutive days within 3 hours of sex. She had light bleeding after 7 days. But now she is 4 days late. What could be the reason for this?

DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology), MBBS
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
I pill can delay and disturb the period cycles. You shud still do a blood test called as serum b-hcg from any nearby lab. It is a test to confirm the presence or absence of a pregnancy. My sincere advice to you to use other modalities of contraception and not i-pill.

Hello, safe period is from day 1 -day 11 of her cycles if they are a 28-30 days cycle. If you don't want to use condoms then she should opt for regular daily dosing oral contraceptive low dose pills like femilon 21/28 which can be started from day 2 of her cycle and shall prevent pregnancy.

Homeopathic treatment for polycystic ovarian syndrome_
Nowadays I am observing that pcos cases are increasing day by day, may be because of faulty food habits, environmental factors. But there is complete cure in homoeopathy for this. The treatment is time consuming and should not be expected in a few days. Complete observation regarding change of symptoms in the patient, so frequent clinical follow ups are required.

Symptoms--
Delayed or absent menses
Irregular menses
Excess hair growth on face and other body parts
Weight gain

Treatment~
Homeopathic treatment is very good for treating this, also add below mentioned food in your died for speedy recovery,
So best of health ladies.
