Hi, my wife is 32 years and we are happily married for 4 years now. We have a 3.6 years old kid. My wife is tested positive for next pregnancy, according to scanning report she is 9 weeks now. With deep regret we would like to discontinue second child for another 2 years. Our regular doctor has recommended surgical removal. Bus, we are little skeptical. Is this the only option or can the pregnancy be terminated using the medication. Just need a second opinion on this at the earliest.

4 Myths on IVF You Should Stop Believing Right Now

4 Myths on IVF You Should Stop Believing Right Now

In vitro fertilisation (IVF) is one of the popular Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART) for treating infertility and helping couples to conceive.

But lack of understanding about the IVF treatment has given rise to a number of myths such as:

Myth 1: IVF never fails but is always successful
The success of the procedure depends on a number of factors such as quality and quantity of embryos and age. It is said that chances of conception decreases with age, with women above 40 reporting reduced fertility potential as well as success rate. On the other hand, women below the age of 35 have about 41% chance of getting pregnant.

Myth 2: IVF increases your fertility levels
Instead of making you more fertile, IVF stops your natural fertility cycle. This is usually done through hormones that are taken at the beginning of the process. The aim of such an action is to essentially put an end to your natural fertility process and create in its place an artificial cycle.

Myth 3: It causes you to have triplets or twins
No, it's not necessary for multiple births to take place if you opt for IVF. You can reduce the prospect of having twins or triplets by cutting down on the number of embryos that get inserted into the uterus.

Myth 4: IVF hormone injections make you prone to uncontrollable emotions.
In actuality, IVF hormone injections don't cause you to suffer from out of control emotions but make you happier. This is because they come packed with the female hormone oestrogen, which produce endorphins (brain chemicals) that give you a sense of wellbeing. The wave of emotions that you end up experiencing is a result of the stress and anxiety surrounding the success of a cycle.

Hi my wife has faced miscarriage three months back. DNC was performed. Now the doctor has prescribed ovigyn dsr tablets. She has been taking it from last twelve days. She has also grade I fatty liver. There is continously pain in her abdomen on right side. Is it safe for her to get pregnant and why is the pain there ?

MD DGO, Laparoscopic Surgery
Integrated Medicine Specialist, Mumbai
It is extremely important to have normal thyroid levels at the time of conception. The miscarriage could be related to low thyroid. Also, the baby's brain development needs normal thyroid. Fatty liver means her 'cholesterol' level is high. So your wife has hormone imbalance, which can be treated safely by Integrative Medicine. Only after normal thyroid should she get pregnant.

I have pcod since 5 years. I have taken treatment for 4 years but now docs says to go for operation. I am married 2 years back nd we have not planed for kids due to pcod problem. Is there any medicine to cure permanently from root. Sum medicine's won't suite me.

MBBS, DGO, MD, Fellowship in Gynae Oncology
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Pcod is more a lifestyle disorder and cured by lifestyle chances only. It does not have any permanent cure. Along with medicine lifestyle and dietary modification can help. Regular exercise, a healthy diet, weight control, and not smoking are all important parts of treatment for polycystic ovary syndrome (pcos). If you are overweight, weight loss may be all the treatment you need. Eat a balanced diet that includes lots of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat dairy products. Get regular exercise to help you control or lose weight and feel better. If you smoke, consider quitting.

How to Lose 5 Kilos in 1 Month Without Trying At All

How to Lose 5 Kilos in 1 Month Without Trying At All
How to lose 5 kilos in 1 month without trying at all

Maybe you just want to slip into that dress you bought the other day, or maybe the waistline inches are increasing and need some taming. Whatever your reasons are, workout sessions are too difficult to keep up with, and the weight loss is just not happening. But what if you were told that you could lose 5 kilos in a month without trying at all?

Try these 4 extremely easy ways to lose 5 kilos in month, without really trying hard!

1. Drink Water: Water may not have miraculous properties that burn fat, but it can definitely help your weight loss efforts. Most of the people confuse thirst with hunger, when it’s actually your body’s way of telling you that it needs to be rehydrated. So consuming the standard 8-10 glasses can prevent you from reaching out for that untimely snack, which means less calorie intake. Consuming 500 ml of water half an hour before dinner every night can reduce up to 2.5 kilos or more, in a month!

2. Walk to your destination: The next time you step out of your home to go the ATM, the local supermarket or even the park, walk the distance. Daily walking for 30 minutes can burn up to 150 calories in a day. So in a matter of just three days, you can lose 500gms of weight from your body!

3. Sip on green tea: Green tea is rich caffeine and EGCG, both of which speed up your metabolism and increase the burning of fat by your body. Sipping on 3-4 cups a day of green tea can burn 100 calories, which would be equal to losing half a kilo in just 5 days.

4. Sniff on apples and peppermints: Yes sniffing on certain foods, like apples, bananas, peppermint, garlic and even olive oil can greatly help in weight loss. Dr. Alan R. Hirsch of Chicago, who is the founder of Smell & Taste Treatment and Research Foundation, tried his method of smelling food reduce weight loss with 3000 volunteers, and each of them lost an average of 13kgs! The reason behind this? Well apparently smelling food before having it can reduce your appetite so that you eat less, and lose more (weight that is).

My friend has been diagnosed with ovarian torsion in left ovary .What is the treatment for it? She has been advised by some doc to remove her left ovary. Please help.

Ovarian torsion does not necessarily need removal of the ovary. A diagnostic laparoscopy is first done, the ovary is untwisted and then we check to see if the ovary is still healthy or has it already lost its blood supply. Only if the ovary is completely damaged, do we think of removing it, otherwise as I said, the ovary can be untwisted and it can be stitched to the side wall so that it doesn't twist again.

Body pains are common for some women just before the periods. If her periods are delayed beyond 17/7, she can do a pregnancy test at home. Sorry, we cannot prescribe natural ways of abortion.

The baby has mild growth retardation. I am not sure there is enough time for aminofit to give the desired effect. In any case, if there is evidence of fetal compromise, doctors may be prompted to deliver your baby earlier than the expected date. Good diet, adequate fluids and bed rest in left lateral position will be useful in the interim.

Some times with some individuals such things do happen when things don't go as per their wish or their plans and this builds up unnecessary stress. These negative feelings sometimes may appear insignificant to a layman but they are significant enough to increase stress and release of stress hormones in the body. In your case similar thing is happening. You are not able to deal with those negative feelings. Many people must have suggested you to make corrections in your thought process, or do YOGA or do meditation moreover you are yourself more or less aware of your situation but still you are not able to come out of it. In such cases homeopathy can surely help you provided you provide us all your health and stress related details which will help us find out a right homeopathic medicine for you that will help balance your stress hormones and you will be able to deal with it more positively.
