Nipple discharge is a common part of breast functioning, which normally occurs during breast-feeding or pregnancy. It is often associated with the changes of menstrual hormone. The milky discharge post breast-feeding usually continues for up to two years after stopping nursing. The condition normally gets resolved on its own but if the situation persists for a long time resort to medical assistance.
The following are some of the causes of normal nipple discharge:
- Stimulation: Normal nipple discharge can arise due to stimulation; chafing of your breast skin due to tight bras or vigorous exercises.
- Pregnancy: Most women tend to witness clear nipple discharge in the early stages of their pregnancy. Towards the later stages, this discharge usually turns watery and becomes milky in color
- Stopped Breast-feeding: In some cases, nipple discharge continues for some time after the mother has stopped breast-feeding her newborn
- Hormonal Imbalance: Some women notice tenderness in breasts and nipple discharge during their menstrual cycle
What is an abnormal nipple discharge: An abnormal nipple discharge is usually bloody in color and is accompanied with tenderness of the breast. Papilloma is a non-cancerous tumor that is often responsible for bloody nipple discharge. Continuous nipple discharge from one of the breasts or nipple discharge that arises without any stimulation or external irritation is abnormal in nature.
The possible causes of abnormal nipple discharge include:
- Abscess: It is an assortment of pus that get accumulated within the tissues of your body. It is usually accompanied by redness, pain and swelling. Boils and carbuncles are types of abscess. Formation of abscess in breasts may result in nipple discharge.
- Breast cancer: Breast cancer often results in bloody nipple discharge and is often found with a presence of lump in one of the breasts.
- Mastitis: It is a breast infection that affects the tissues of the breast and is usually prominent during breastfeeding. Fatigue, fever and body aches are common in this situation.
- Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS): Normally characterized by the growth of cancerous cells in the milk ducts of your breasts, it is generally identified through mammography screening.
- Fibroadenoma: In this situation most young women witness an appearance of solid, tumor like structure
- Galactorrhea: Galactorrhea is nipple discharge of milk when not pregnant or breastfeeding. The discharge can vary in color and can be expressed from either or both breasts.
What Causes Galactorrhea: Galactorrhea is commonly caused by hyperprolactinemia, especially when it is associated with amenorrhea. Hyperprolactinemia is most often induced by medication or associated with pituitary adenomas or other sellar or suprasellar lesions.
The release of prolactin from the pituitary is held in check by dopamine from the hypothalamus. Prolactin release is encouraged by serotonin and thyrotropin-releasing hormone. This balance can be disrupted by medication (ie. antipsychotics), underactive thyroid function, pituitary tumors, hypothalamic tumors, damage to the pituitary stalk, nipple stimulation, chest trauma, herpes zoster, and emotional stress as well as a variety of other factors.
Chronic kidney disease is an emerging crisis in India, people suffer from long-standing kidney problems that deteriorate the functioning of kidneys and ultimately lead to renal failure. There are a series of complications that come with chronic kidney disease (CKD) which include high blood pressure, complications with the heart, bone diseases, and even anemia. The symptoms don’t show in the early stages unless you get blood tests but even then you have to specifically look for it.
The symptoms start showing up eventually which include swelling of the leg, tiredness, puking and even fogging up of the mind and general weakness. You are more prone to CKD if it’s in your genetic makeup, as in if it runs in the family, or if you are obese and or diabetic. Yet, even if chronic kidney disease does run in your family, that is no reason to adopt a defeatist attitude towards your kidneys and if even if it doesn’t run in your family you should start take caring of your kidneys so that you can stave off the risk of it. Here are 5 easy ways to take care of your kidneys:
- Be active: You need to be active and avoid leading a sedentary life to keep your blood pressure in check. This includes regular and regulated amounts of exercise, which could just be simply walking for 30 minutes every day, or cycling or even jogging. Basically, indulge in regular physical activities that increase your heart rate.
- Check your blood pressure: Keep a look out for your blood pressure, and monitor it as often as possible, or as soon as you feel any sort of discomfort like dizziness or excessively tired or warm. Normal levels are 120/80. High blood pressure puts you in danger of kidney damage especially, when combined with other factors such as diabetes and high cholesterol.
- Hydrate yourself: Drink lots of water but try not to overdo it. Try to avoid drinking other liquids in place of water such as sodas. 1.5 to 2 litres of water is agreed upon to be the healthy limit. Drinking the required amount of water regularly helps the kidneys flush out the toxins from the body, helps in its proper functioning and thus lowers the chances of kidney damage and formation of kidney stones.
- Weight management: Keep your weight under control, being obese puts a lot of pressure on your heart and kidneys. Increase your intake of fruits and vegetables and decrease your intake of saturated fats and salt that is found in abundance in processed foods.
- Avoid smoking and drinking: Regulate your drinking and try to limit it to one or two glasses. Completely give up smoking and avoid it because smoke reduces the flow of blood to the kidneys and affects their normal functioning. It is also known to contribute to kidney cancer and increases the chances of the same by 50%.

One of the most common queries faced by doctors dealing with pregnancies are risks associated with having sex during the gestation and post-partum periods. Such doubts arise from both genuine concern and also from several superstitions and myths.
As a matter of fact, having sex during pregnancy is perfectly normal and safe. However, keeping in mind the changes the woman is going through, there are a few specific do's and don'ts you need to follow while having sex during pregnancy.
- Be aware: Pay attention to the doctor's evaluation of the expecting mother's condition. Many pregnancy risks can be predicted at an early stage. Abstain in case of predictions pointing to a risky gestation period and/ or delivery. Get yourself tested regularly, so that there is no possibility of transmitting infections to the expecting mother.
- Enjoy foreplay: Pregnancy normally results in increased sensation in the erotogenic zones. Foreplay is a great way to relieve a woman's tension and she will enjoy your touch more than ever.
- Pay attention to your partner's needs and reactions: Women have to go through a lot during pregnancy like fatigue all the time, along with sudden nausea and extreme mood swings. So, paying more attention to your partner's needs and reactions will help make the act more enjoyable for both of you.
- Don't go for multiple partners: Multiple partners increase the risk of infections. It is not advisable to have sex with multiple partners during this time.
- Don't use sex toys: Use of sex toys during pregnancy is discouraged as it increases the risk of infections.
- Don't try risky positions and maneuvers: Please keep your desires for exotic positions in check. Risque behavior can lead to injuries.
- Don't keep yourself ahead of her: It is perfect idiocy to keep your desires ahead of the needs and desires of the love of your life. By putting yourself ahead of her you will not only negatively affect her mental health, but her physical health as well.
- Do not mix drugs with intimacy: Use of intoxicants during her pregnancy to enhance your senses will put the healthy growth and delivery of the child in jeopardy. A number of birth defects in children are the result of using intoxicating substance use during pregnancy. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.
