Hi, I appreciate you seeking help. As I understand, fibroadenomas, although benign, increase the chances of breast cancer. In your case especially, to be on a safer side, its advisable to remove the same surgically unless your physician advises otherwise. I would recommend that you consult a breast specialist, in person, for an expert 2nd opinion and proceed as he or she recommends you to. Hope this helps. Do take care, and all the very best.

MBBS, DGO, DNB
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Tips to Deal With Heavy Menstrual Flow

Heavy menstrual flow also known as Menorrhagia is one of the most common form of abdominal bleeding from uterus. Everyone has different periods, some might not even notice that time of the month, while others might suffer from heavy bleeding, feeling miserable and a constant worry of leaks and stains leading to embarrassing situations. Periods are considered to be heavy if a pad or tampon is soaked in blood every hour.

Other symptoms of heavy bleeding could be:

  • Passing of large clots
  • Bleeding at night which requires to get up to change a pad
  • Any period that lasts for more than seven days

The causes of heavy bleeding during periods might be due to fibroids (noncancerous tumors of the uterus), 
ectopic pregnancy, cervical cancer, pelvic inflammatory disease, use or blood thinners and problems with intrauterine device.

If you are one of those women who suffer from heavy menstrual flow and are quite hassled by the same then worry not here are some tips to deal the your problem.

  1. Keep a track of the periods as in when they start and the days with heavy bleeding. This helps you to track your next period and prepare yourself well for the same
  2. Low iron levels can cause heavy bleeding, thus maintaining the iron levels is a good idea
  3. Eating green leafy vegetables and taking multivitamins helps to maintain the iron levels
  4. Eat fruit and food with starch to maintain a good sugar level
  5. Hydrate yourself as it makes you feel less grumpy and miserable
  6. In case of severe cramps take some pain relievers like aspirin and ibuprofen. Even a hot water bottle is a great way to chase the blues and the cramps
  7. Get some sleep as one feels tired before the period and the days of the period. Listen to your body and don't push yourselves. Use extra protection in case you are worried about leakage
  8. Try using a menstrual cup as they have greater capacity as compared to tampons or pads. Also, one does not need to carry any supplies for the day
  9. Don't feel shy or embarrassed to talk about your condition
  10. You might need professional help and want to consult a doctor. Keeping a track of your period is good as doctors usually ask for the duration of the period and how heavy were they.

If you do not feel better with these tips a meeting with the doctor can predict the cause of the heavy flow and accordingly a medical treatment can be planned.

Medication for heavy bleeding might include any one or more of the following:

  1. Use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen
  2. Hormone Therapy for stabilizing the endometrium
  3. Tranexamic acid to promote blood clotting
  4. Dilation and curettage that is scraping of the uterus is done
  5. Hysteroscopy is where a long scope is inserted in the vagina and the lining of the uterus which causes bleeding is removed
  6. Endometrial resection is where the lining of the uterus is destroyed or removed and also makes it impossible to have babies after this
  7. Hysterectomy - This procedure is the surgical removal of cervix and uterus (If this procedure is done then it is impossible to make babies after this)

Following these simple tips is sure to control your bleeding, but if you still face issues and problems then consult a doctor.

I have missed my periods last month?
but nothing happened between me and my bf.
is this normal?
Yes slight irregularities of any type, can occur in periods without much problems & if this is not happening regularly, we can ignore it. If nothing happened between you & your bf, then why are you so worried. So if you have slightest risk, do pregnancy test otherwise you can wait till the date of next period.

I married before 4 months. We want a baby. Please give me important tips for early pregnancy of my wife.
Thank you.
To get pregnant, a couple should have regular sex (3-4 times a week) for whole 1 year, before which you should not worry. There are some days which you can practice according to calender method. 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.

All the tests have shown negative result. On 7th she had a mark but aftr that no sign of periods. We had unprotected sex (ejaculated outside). Please suggest what should she do and is there any way of finding out if she is pregnant or not as we are very much tensed. Can she take primolut N?

With the sex on 3rd april beta hcg test will come positive only after 16 th april and urine test on 22-24th april. All the tests done till now are not useful. If she does not get menses by 24 th april you can do urine test. Primolut n will not bring menses if she is pregnant. Menses can be missed by hormonal changes also. As such she has extremely low chance of getting pregnant as sex was just 2 days before the expected date.

Symptoms and missed period and feeling the uterus doctor can diagnose pregnancy but in early pregnancy it is not confirmatory. In early pregnancy, we always do urine test or sonography to confirm.

I am 20 years old. My periods are late 6 days and I am having white stretchy discharge. I am worried.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology

I am 20 years old. My periods are late 6 days and I am having white stretchy discharge. I am worried.
Menses can get delayed by hormonal changes or stress or weight gain. Wait for another 15 days. As sticky or stretchy discharge is there means that menses r round the corner. If happened for the first time then no need of any tests or treatment. Thais sticky discharge is nothing but the cervical mucus which gets expelled just before the menses.
