Heavy Menstrual Bleeding - 9 Causes Behind It

Heavy menstrual bleeding, technically called menorrhagia, is one of the most common types of abnormal bleeding from the uterus. Menstrual bleeding is said to be heavy if there is so much blood that a tampon or pad remains soaked for several hours. 

Here are all the possible causes of heavy menstrual bleeding:

1. Hormonal imbalance
Estrogen and progesterone levels are the primary control mechanism for periods. If the ovaries have a problem in functioning, hormonal imbalances may occur. Heavy menstrual bleeding is most common in females who are at the start of menopause. Puberty menorrhagia can occur in adolescents who are experiencing their first menstrual period. 

2. Fibroids
These most commonly occur around the age when women can get pregnant. Uterine fibroids are non-cancerous growths on the uterus.

3. Ectopic pregnancy
An ectopic pregnancy is when a fertilized egg stays in the fallopian tube but does not reach the uterus.

4. Blood thinners
These are medicines which are usually anticoagulant or anti-platelet drugs.

5. Problems with IUD
A non-hormonal intrauterine device is a T-shaped device used for birth control which is inserted into the uterus.

6. Adenomyosis
This is a condition in which the muscular wall of the uterus also gets the lining of the uterus intermingled with it. However, this condition is rare and only happens in middle aged women with several children.

7. PID
PID stands for pelvic inflammatory disease and refers to any infection within the organs of the reproductive system.

8. Cancer
Uterine, ovarian and cervical cancer are just some of the cancers which may cause heavy menstrual bleeding.

9. Other diseases
Liver, kidney and thyroid diseases are all included. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.

Hi gain weight you need to combine a balanced eating pattern with regular physical activity. You should be eating at least 6 small meals a day, rather than sticking to 3 square meals. You could divide it as 3 main meals and 3 snacks. You need to be eating every 2-3 hours. Space out snacks during the day so you don't spoil your appetite. Bread, cereal, rice, whole wheat, dalia and pasta: biscuits, and corn-bread are good sources of carbohydrates. Fruits: dried fruits, fruit nectars, and large quantities of fresh fruits vegetables: include, potatoes, peas, corn in your diet. Meat, poultry, fish, dry beans, eggs, and nuts: beef, pork, lamb, poultry, salmon, omelets, nuts, peanut butter, kidney beans, chickpeas will help you gain weight. Include dairy products like milk, yogurt, and cheese: milk, fruited yogurts, hard cheeses, ice cream, puddings, custards, milkshakes. -nuts and seeds make a healthy option for snacks. -roasted channas and peanuts are good -peanut butter on the sandwiches are a great mid-meal choice. -you must know that cereals actually contain some healthy calories. Stay hydrated: drinking plenty of water and other fluids like juices, milk, soups etc, will work in your favour. Do not drink water before a meal and in between the meal as it may make you lose your appetite, thus calorie intake suffers. Sleep: at least 8 hours of sound sleep is a must. Since your body is actually building up muscles, while you rest. Weight gainers have long term side effects.

Mr. Lybrate-user, t1 diabetes has to be treated by insulin injections only. There is no other alternative, insulin injections have to be taken for diabetes control as well as for survival. Along with that you have to take a restricted diet, so that it provides just exact calories, exercise daily for one hour for better glucose utilisation and reducing insulin resistance. T1 diabetes occurs due to destruction of beta cells of islets of langerhans (insulin secreting cells). This is an autoimmune disease.

Please note the followings in respect to your queries: 1. Banana and Milk -- Bananas are full of calories and contain high amount of carbohydrates and potassium that give you instant energy. Whosoever want to gain weight must eat a banana daily in the morning with a glass of warm milk. Add a teaspoon of sugar in it. Moreover, you can also have it after your meals. Note – Don’t eat bananas when you are down with common cold. 2. Peanut Butter -- Peanut butter is a yummy spread for toast and bread. If you’re trying to gain weight, feel free to go for this high-calorie and nutritious food. Apply it on your whole wheat bread for breakfast and see how your weight increases within a short period of time. •Besides, you can spread a spoonful of peanut butter on fruits or vegetables like banana, apple slices, fresh berries, wheat germ or applesauce. •Alternatively, a peanut butter sandwich is also a good choice. If you have any medical disease that needs to be treated. Find a great personal trainer and yoga instructor to keep you consistent. Take Five phos - 4 tablets twice daily.

Hba1c- increase your intake of fibre rich foods like whole grain cereals- oats, barley, methi seeds, flaxseeds, salads before meals, eat small frequent meals every 2-3 hours. However it is advised that you consult a clinical dietician for a diet prescription.

Only an endocrinologist can help you. Also just avoid all salt sugar etc white things for few days and see the results. Avoid fear and anxiety about anything as that builds layers in or out of the body.

That means you have to take vegetables, milk, chapattis or rice, butter / cream, cereals (daals) or cheese every day. Very important thing, do not miss or skip your meals at any cost and take meals on time. * proper 6-8 hours sleep is very important. If your sleep is less than 6 hours, then you feel tired very early. So complete your sleep. * do breathing execises daily in morning & evening. Just sit down in peaceful place, close your eyes, take deep and long breaths in and out. Do it atleast for 10-15 minutes daily.

I am getting laziness. So what kind of food shall I eat and what kind of fruits shall I take.
Laziness is all in the head. Just get up and decide to do something productive. There are no foods to cure laziness. Eat foods that are local and seasonal. Avoid fasting long hours and also don't overeat. If lack of energy is still an issue get your thyroid and blood sugar and hemoglobin levels checked.

Hi lybrate-user I believe every day is women’s day. 90% of Indian families start their day with a cup of nice hot brewed coffee and end the day with relishing dinner prepared by a women. A woman plays a key role in the society. But when it comes to their own life they are very tired and stressed looking for a soothing and relaxing time. Neilson survey shows that in INDIA “87% of women are stressed and 82% of women complaint that they have no time to relax”. This stress full life is creating havoc on women’s health. Women play the role of a Mom, Daughter, Daughter in-law, wife, Professional and a responsible citizen. Balancing all these roles and leading a happy and healthy life is not as easy as we think. This needs some homework. Health Surveys shows that there is an increase in infertility cases among working women. The major cause for infertility is Polycystic Ovarian Disorder. That is small water filled cysts are arranged like a chain in ovaries. This prevents ovulation and leads to irregular menstrual cycles. There are several reasons for cysts formation. Stresses, Exposure to environmental pollution, Irregular lifestyle are major causes. Now let us see in detail how to correct these factors and maintain harmony of hormones. Stresses: Stresses vary from person to person depending on their emotional balance. First rate your stress levels on 0-10 scale 0 being no stress and 10 being highly stressed. Write this on a paper and aim to bring this number down. Here are few tips that help to bring down stress levels. Take 5 min in a day as a self assessment time. Then find out what is stressing you more. Write a list of them and find ways to tackle them. Note: Your thought process should be in such a way that you think positively to come out of stress. Never find excuses to stress yourself. Practice deep breathing technique during work hours. For example give a pause and take 10 deep breaths for every one hour of continues work. Smell lavender oil. Add few drops of lavender oil to your napkin or facial tissue and smell it. Lavender oil works well to relieve stress. Aim to eat healthy food. If you are working late hours snack in between. This snack should be rich in protein like nuts or boiled chick pea with salad vegetables. Talk to very near person with whom you can share your emotions and feel relaxed. Communication is the key to solve issues in relationships. Environmental pollution: Everybody is aware of rise in environmental pollution. India has 4 cities ranked among 10 most polluted cities in the World. There are few kinds of pollution which are out of our hands. But few pollutions can be controlled or decreased. A review article in Medspace reported that parabens present in cosmetics especially underarm cosmetics play a crucial role in breast cancer as parabens bind to human estrogen receptors and cause high serum estrogen. This leads to breast cancer. So avoid cosmetics that have parabens. Better go for herbal products. Similarly Bisphenols present in plastics also cause hormonal imbalance. So avoid eating and storing hot foods in plastic containers as they release bisphenols when we place a hot food in plastic containers. Maintain low exposure to air pollution. Wear a mask to your nose to avoid direct inhalation of smoke. Drink clean and filtered water. Especially water contaminated with heavy metals like lead and mercury. So select water filters that can filter these metals. Always go green. Select organic food whenever possible. Detox your body monthly once. Consult a specialist for detox. Never do it on your own. “Environmental Working Group “check their site for safe cosmetic and cleaning products in market. Irregular lifestyle: Last but not least “Lifestyle”. The only proven therapy for PCOD is maintaining a good life style. Please maintain your biological rhythms. Disturbance in your rhythm will create havoc on your metabolism. Maintain regular meal timings. This will keep your hunger and satiety hormones in balance. Regular meal timings will help you to maintain healthy weight. “Food is medicine”. Enjoy your food in limitation. Too much of anything will harm you. Aim to introduce salads to your meal plate. Meal plate should have one variety of green leafy vegetables. This does not include ice berg lettuce. Salads helps to boost your Fibre intake, Vitamin C levels, Folic acid levels, Vitamin E. These are all required to maintain hormonal balance. Aim to include 4-5 servings of low glycemic Index fruits. Like oranges, guava, pomegranate, papaya, kiwi, grapes, water melon. These will boost your anti oxidant levels. Apart from diet lifestyle also includes physical activity. There is strong evidence that 30 min of physical activity 5 days in a week will help you to maintain healthy weight. Physical activity keeps your cortisol hormone in balance and helps to lower stress. It is a fight or flight hormone. If you are overly stressed this hormone levels rise and leads to major hormonal imbalances like PCOD, Hypo Thyroid, Insomnia, Migraines. Healthy food, Physical activity, Proper hydration and Sleep are key points to be checked to maintain healthy lifestyle.

Hi lybrate-user weight problem is one of the most common problems that affect millions of people. Approaching nutritionists and gym instructors for effective weight loss plans are effective fixes for this problem. Strangely, just like weight gain, people do struggle to gain a few pounds. It has been medically proven that being underweight too can cause severe health problems. Usually, people tend to think that following a weight gain diet is completely doable. But that is not completely true. It requires the same amount of control and will power as one would need while following a weight gain diet plan, which recommends the intake of high-calorie foods. The idea of a weight gain diet is to put on healthy weight and steer clear of saturated fats. Let us take a look at a few weight gain foods that could change your lives the natural way. Whole milk milk is an important beverage for the most of us. From a creamy cup of coffee to a healthy bowl of oatmeal/ cereals soaked in milk, there are several ways of enjoying this essential source of nourishment. While a weight gain diet plan would not require you to give up on milk, you will have to switch from fat-free or skim milk to whole milk. It is high in essential nutrients, vitamins and contains healthy calories. One glass of whole fat milk contains 3.25% fat and 150 calories. It nourishes your body and helps you gain weight faster. Cheese if you love cheese, then stick to it. Cheese is rich in calories, healthy nutrients, and vitamins. It supplements your body with enough protein and calcium to build stronger bones. Being a milk product, cheese has a high fat content, which helps to gain weight. Try out different types of cheese and use them in your food for garnishing or as a dip. Butter another essential ingredient that can be included in your diet while on a weight gain regime is butter. It is rich in good saturated fats and nutrients that help you to gain weight faster. Also, powerful fatty acids and vitamins make sure you are in the pink of health always. However, you need to monitor the intake saturated weight gain foods as too much intake could add to cholesterol. So, layer your toasts with some butter and enjoy every bite. Dried fruit and nuts the perfect food items to snack on while on a weight gain diet are wholesome nuts and other dried fruits. Full of nutrients and healthy fats, dried fruits and nuts provide you with essential fiber and vitamins. Add almonds, walnuts, or pecans to your daily diet. Include them in your cereals during breakfast or add them to your salads for a nice crunch. Potatoes carbohydrates are an essential part of your diet when you want to gain weight. The best source of carbohydrates is potatoes. They are rich in fiber, vitamins and proteins too. It is recommended to eat potatoes with their skin, as the skin is a rich source of protein. Add them to your main course or have them as a side dish to ensure healthy weight gain. Eggs eggs make a perfect breakfast item, especially if you are on a weight gain plan. Whisk up an omelet or scrambled egg for a quick meal and get nutrients in a jiffy. Egg yolk is known for the healthy cholesterol and essential nutrients it contains. Packed with omega-3 fatty acids and protein, eggs are the perfect wholesome weight gain foods. Pasta bring an exotic twist to your weight gain diet with some pasta. Rich in fiber, starch and carbohydrates, pasta is the answer to all your underweight issues. Available in many shapes and sizes, pastas can be made in a variety of recipes. Add chicken or vegetables to increase its nutritional properties. Lean red meat good news for meet lovers! you can relish the different preparations of lean red meat while on a weight gain diet. Rich in proteins and other nutrients, red meat adds to your weight faster. It is recommended to opt for lean cuts. So, keep lean red meat on the top of your shopping list the next time you buy weight gain foods. Also read: benefits of drinking hot water peanut butter enjoy your snack times with scrumptious peanut butter toast. Peanut butter is an ideal choice from weight gain foods for people striving to put on weight. It is loaded with fats and protein, adding some healthy calories to your weight. While selecting your peanut butter, make sure it does not contain sugar. It is recommended to opt for more natural or organic peanut butter. Fruits fruits are weight gain foods that are perfect for in-between meals. When following a weight gain regime, one can eat sugar-rich fruits like mangoes, avocados, bananas, and pineapples. Offering you essential nutrients and energy, these fruits are a must-add to your daily diet. Conclusion underweight people can now attain a healthy body by incorporating the above-mentioned food sources in your weight gain diet. They help add good calories to your every day meal plan, keeping you away from health disorders.

Fibroid Tumours: All You Should Know

MBBS
Gynaecologist, Chennai
Fibroid Tumours: All You Should Know

A fibroid tumour is made up of muscle cells that have escaped and come together to create a knot or a mass in the uterus. These tumours can occur due to a family history and are usually known to occur for women patients nearing menopause. One of the most common symptoms is unusually heavy menstrual cycles. Let us walk you through the rest of the details.

  • Types: Fibroid tumours can be of three types, mainly depending on the location. While submucosal fibroids can be found just under the lining of the uterus, intramural fibroids can be found between the muscles that lie on the walls of the uterus. Finally, the third type - subserol fibroids - go beyond the uterine wall to enter the pelvic cavity. 
  • Symptoms: Usually, there are no symptoms of these kinds of fibroids. There may be heavy bleeding during the monthly menstrual cycle, as well as swelling and pain in the abdomen. Also, prolonged bleeding is common when these kinds of tumours are present in the body. 
  • Cause: Fibroid tumours are mostly caused due to an overgrowth of the cells beyond the muscular walls that line the uterus. In such cases, the growth is further fuelled by hormones like estrogen and progesterone. These hormones are usually at their highest level in the body, during the childbearing years of a woman. During menopause, these tumours are known to shrink before they eventually vanish. It is very rare to find malignancy in such tumours. 
  • Risk: Are you at risk? Well, that depends on your age, family medical history, weight and in some cases, even the ethnicity. These tumours are mostly found in women who are between the age of 30 to 40 years and continues through menopause. Obesity is also a major reason that gives rise to this condition. Further, women of colour are known to develop this more easily while a family history can also increase your chances of the same.
  • Tests and Diagnosis: A pelvic exam and an ultrasound as well as a history of your menstrual cycle will help the doctor in determining whether or not you are suffering from this condition.
  • Treatment: Non steroid, anti-inflammatory drugs can help in bringing down the swelling and pain, especially in cases where there is heavy menstrual bleeding. Birth control pills and patches with hormones can also help in such cases. Further, progesterone shots and iron supplements may be prescribed. Very severe cases may require surgery for removal with a myomectomy.

Remember to visit your doctor in case you see any nagging symptoms of fibroid tumours.
