In the month of march 3×2 cm subserosa fungal fibroid was detected. Then I had my last period in april 2nd and I am 28 weeks pregnant now. My fibroid was detected to be grown as 5 cm now. My concern ia how to get rid of this fibroid? My doctor says it cannot be removed during delivery. Then how do I get this removed? What if it continues to grow? I already had twice myomectomy because of the same fibroid growth and regrowth one on 2009 and another in 2014. Pls help. There must be a limit to the number of surgeries tht can be performed to remove this.

hi Manisha, please don't worry about fibroid now, generaly fibroid will reduce in size after delivery, it wont affect your present pregnancy and mode of delivery. get an ultrasound done 3month after delivery and reassess then we discuss about treatment options.

You can do sex 5 days before start of periods and 5 days after end of periods. There are less chances of pregnancy in this time. Normal average duration of time during sex is 10 to 15 minutes. You can do sex is missionary position.

Women with PCOS have these characteristics: • High levels of male hormones, also called androgens • An irregular or no menstrual cycle • May or may not have many small cysts in their ovaries. Cysts are fluid filled sacs. PCOS is the most common hormonal reproductive problem in women of childbearing age. How many women have PCOS? An estimated 5 to 10% of women of childbearing age have PCOS. About PCOS Women with PCOS develop several cysts inside 1 or both ovaries. Generally, 15 to 20 follicles begin to mature for ovulation every month. Usually 1 follicle fully matures, and the rest die off. Women with PCOS however never have 1 follicle fully mature. As a result, 15 to 20 follicles stay inside the ovaries and become cysts. These cysts produce high levels of male hormones causing a number of unpleasant symptoms. What causes PCOS? No one exactly knows the cause of PCOS. Evidence suggests there is a genetic link to this disorder. Certain factors appear to play a role in this syndrome. They include: •Low FSH – FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone) is a hormone released by the pituitary gland in your brain. It helps the follicles inside your ovaries to mature enabling ovulation. •Excess male hormones – most women with PCOS have high levels of male hormone. This interferes with ovulation and contributes to PCOS •Insulin resistance – many PCOS are insulin resistant. Insulin resistance occurs when your body does not manage insulin properly. Insulin is important for proper ovarian function. Hence insulin resistance can contribute to PCOS. What are the symptoms of PCOS? • Infrequent menstrual periods, no menstrual periods and or irregular bleeding • Infertility or inability to get pregnant because of not ovulating • Increased growth of hair on the face, chest, stomach, back, thumb or toes • Acne, oily skin or dandruff • Weight gain or obesity, usually extra weight around the waist • Male pattern baldness or thinning hair • Skin tags, or tiny excess flaps of skin in the armpits or neck area. What are the complications of PCOS? • Infertility – because PCOS interferes with ovulation you can have long term fertility problems • Endometrial cancer – PCOS can cause the inner lining of your womb to become thicker, increasing your risk of developing endometrial cancer • Obesity related illness – because PCOS increases your chance of being overweight, it causes weight related health illness such as high blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease. Getting the symptoms under control at an earlier age may help to reduce this risk. What tests are used to diagnose PCOS? Diagnosis is based on a physical examination and a few clinical tests. Your Gynaecologist will provide a pelvic examination to look for swelling of your ovaries, check your hormone levels and possibly arrange an ultrasound in order to get a detailed picture of your ovaries and the endometrium (inner lining of your womb). What is the difference between PCO and PCOS? The term polycystic ovaries (PCO) describes the appearance of the ovaries seen on ultrasound, but do not have symptoms or hormone findings as described previously. Approximately 20% of women in the general population have ovaries with this appearance. What is not known from the current evidence is whether these women will develop a full blown PCOS in the future. How is Polycystic ovarian syndrome treated? Because there is no cure for PCOS, it needs to be managed to prevent problems. Treatments are based on the symptoms each patient is having and whether she wants to conceive or needs contraception. Common PCOS treatment options include: Weight loss - weight loss will help to regulate insulin levels and help to restore ovulation and menstrual cycles. Birth control pills - pills that contain oestrogen and progesterone will help to regulate the menstrual cycles and decrease the appearance of hair growth and acne. The menstrual cycle will become abnormal again when the pill is stopped. Women may also think of taking a progesterone only pill. This will help to prevent endometrial problems, but not help to reduce acne and hair problems. Diabetes medication - the diabetes medication, metformin, affects the way insulin is processed in the body. It also helps to decrease the testosterone level (male hormone level). This may help to restore ovulation and lessen hair growth. Fertility medications - fertility medication, injections of Gonadotropins (hormone injections) may help to stimulate ovulation and increase your chances of getting pregnant. Medicine for increased hair growth and extra male hormones - if a woman is not trying to get pregnant, medical treatments such as Cyproterone acetate, Spironolactone, Finasteride etc have been shown to reduce male hormone effects on hair growth. All treatments must be continued for 8 to18 months before a response is expected. This is due to the slow rate of hair growth. Other non-medical treatments such as electrolysis or laser hair removal are effective at getting rid of hair. Surgery - ovarian drilling is often an effective procedure that helps to stimulate ovulation. During surgery small holes are made in the ovary which helps to reduce the testosterone level (male hormone level) and an increase in ovulation. Does PCOS change at menopause? Researchers are looking at how male hormone levels change as women with PCOS grow older. They think that as women reach menopause, ovarian function changes and menstrual cycle may become more normal. But, even with falling male hormone levels, excessive hair growth continues, and male pattern baldness or thinning hair gets worse after menopause.

Dear Ms.Akansha, come out of stress due to left job. Be confident again and start new ening. Better you start own business if not easily getting job. Along with that do Yoga, Pranayama and Omkar chanting regularly. Apply Cgandan bala laxadi oil on scalp regularly.

6 Sex Positions During Pregnancy

6 Sex Positions During Pregnancy

During pregnancy, your body is subjected to several physiological changes including increased hair fall, continuous indigestion, headaches, development of varicose veins, skin pigmentations and so on. The growing baby bump hinders free movement as well. Quality time with your husband or partner is helpful, but is not the best way to relax you. During pregnancy many partners stop having sex due to body issues. Intercourse is extremely important to comfort an expecting mother. Going by a few sex positions cited below, partners can enjoy pregnancy without a speck of stress.

1. Spooning- In spooning a woman lies on one of her sides while the male partner lies behind her on his left or right side. Both partners should lie on the same side or if not they will end up turning their backs at each other. Penetration happens from behind. This position enables shallow penetration, which is good for the baby.

2. Do it like a clip- In this case two bodies should align like a clip. The man lies on his back while the woman is on the top facing him. Her knees are folded next to him and she is in the shape of an arch. Her hands serve as support as they are firmly placed on the bed behind her arching back. There is ample space for the bump.

3. Perch on him- It is healthier to avoid pressure on the abdominal region when pregnant. Make your man sit on a stable surface; say a stool or a chair. Sit on his lap with your back against his chest. This way the woman can regulate the depth of penetration by moving backward and forward. She is on her toes and her abdomen faces no weight.

4. Do it the Amazon way- The Amazon style of intercourse needs to be carried out on a chair or a stool. The male partner remains seated while the woman sits on his lap facing him with her legs across his sides. The baby bump is comfortably positioned between the partners and the lady takes charge by moving up and down.

5. Doggy style- The doggy style keeps the expecting mother away from exertion. She crouches on her hands and legs while the male partner enters her body from behind.

6. Living Room style- Let your rounded belly rest against the softness of the living room couch. Kneel on the couch to suit your feasibility, while your partner penetrates you from behind. The pregnant woman balances her body by holding on to the couch with her hands.

Not exactly. If too many abortions have been carried out scientifically under hygienic conditions, best doctors cannot tel about the numbers!
