Treatment of Vulvodynia

Fellowship In Minimal Access Surgery, MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Hyderabad
Treatment of Vulvodynia

Many women experience pain in their genitals intermittently or a few times during their lives which may be caused by varying factors. However, when pain in the vulva and the surrounding area occurs in regular cycles or constantly without any underlying reasons, it is known as Vulvodynia. This is characterized by pain in the vulva, the surrounding areas, the entrance to the vagina and the urethra. Let's look at some of the treatment options for Vulvodynia:

1. Topical or local anesthetics: As Vulvodynia is a condition due to the abnormal sensitivity of the area surrounding the vulva, using anesthetics will help to ease the pain. Treatments like ointment and sprays will numb the area and ease the symptoms. This can even be applied before sexual intercourse if it is a trigger for pain.

2. Injections that act as nerve blocks: Some women may experience sensitivity as they may have neural problems and due to this sensitivity in the nerves in the genital area, may suffer from Vulvodynia. This is usually treated with nerve blocks or medications that reduce the sensitivity of the nerves. This should be only after consultation with the doctor.

3. Biofeedback therapy: There are certain forms of physical therapy which can be employed to reduce pain from Vulvodynia. Biofeedback therapy primarily deals with this problem by teaching patients to relax muscles.

4. Physical therapy of the pelvic floor muscles: This is also a common therapy where the patients are taught to relax and control the pelvic muscles. These are the muscles which support the bowel, the bladder and the uterus and specific exercises will help relax them, reducing the symptoms as well as decreasing the incidences of intermittent Vulvodynia.

5. Medications: This is the most common treatment for Vulvodynia. Various medications can be prescribed to patients depending on the type of pain they experience, such as Antihistamines for itching, tricyclic antidepressants for chronic pain among others. Steroids and anticonvulsants are also used to reduce pain.

6. Surgery of the affected area: If your pain is chronic and can't be treated by any other method, then doctors might suggest surgery to remove the bits of tissue from the affected area to reduce sensitivity and pain. However this is done only in the rarest of cases. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist and ask a free question.

The True Cause Of Pain: How The Spine Is Connected To Internal Organs

Spine problems often cause pain in the most random body parts. Then you start treating other diseases, but, of course, there is no effect.

This is why it is highly important to pay attention to the spine.

If you feel back pain, you can tell which part of the spine is affected by noticing anomalies, thus pointing problems related to a certain organ.

This infographic will help you learn how organs are skillfully linked the spine:

70% of headache occur from the spine.

Tinnitus, difficulty when swallowing, vision problems – all this can be a consequence of intervertebral disc dysfunction.

If you feel tingling or pain in your hands, check your spine in the neck area.

Problems with chest part of the spine can cause pain in the area of the heart, stomach and intestines.

Problems with the lumbar spine can be manifested as pain in the hips, thighs, reducing sensitivity in the legs, as well as walking.

Accordingly, treatment and strengthening the spine can help you get rid of the problems with other organs.

I have some sex problems in my wife. She is satisfied soon and her disease no more only one time. I wanna grow her sex stamina Please give me a solution.

General Physician,
1. You should not do the intercourse immediately you are in the bed. 2. You should hug, rub all the parts, fondle the breast, play with it for the maximum time 3. Then woman will get the sex urge to the peak and will ask you for intercourse. 4. Now only you should do the intercourse that will satisfy both, the timing to satisfy the partner is more important. Enjoy.

With many technological advances, our attention span has decreased drastically from what it used to be. We spend significantly more time glued to our screens and have an increased amount of stimuli from the environment. This results in our focus constantly shifting.  

Your memory capacity on the other hand is limitless. The human brain has the ability to store more than 1 quadrillion pieces of data. This is only the average amount of data being recorded throughout our lives and 99% of the information from our environment gets discarded.

Here are some ways in which you can improve your memory and attention:

  • Exercise:

Regular exercise helps supply oxygen to the brain which can help reduce the risk of memory loss and other related problems.

  • Getting enough sleep:

It is said that the average adult needs 7-8 hours of sleep every night. Even one hour less can reduce problem solving skills, memory and creativity.

  • Laughing:

The phrase “laughter is the best medicine” doesn’t only hold true for physical ailments but also helps in improving memory. It helps people think more broadly and connect ideas more freely.

  • The power of music:

Numerous studies show that listening to music without lyrics helps increase your ability to focus. Music has proven to be very calming and soothing for people. This very quality is what helps boost your concentration and focus.

  • Identifying stressors:

Stressors act as a magnet and pulls away our concentration. A way to rectify this is to “clean up” your mind. Get rid of all the stressors by taking a few deep breaths before you start your work. This will help you concentrate and focus on your desired task for longer periods of time.

  • Test your attention span:

Cut out newspaper articles with three paragraphs. Cross out the any one vowel in the article.

  • If you have skipped letters in the first paragraph – attention span dips at the beginning.

  • If you skip letters in the second paragraph (and not in first or third) – attention is lost halfway and returns slowly.

  • If you skip letters in the second paragraph and in the third – you have a short attention span and other activities along with this must be conducted regularly to increase it.

  • If you skip letters in the third paragraph – attention span decreases towards the end.

This activity can be done often to check improvement in attention span.

I am a 23 year old female and my partner and I have unprotected sex every time we do it. Since September, I have not had my period but there was the occasional discharge. Now I am having an increase in this discharge starting towards the end of April. Also I took a pregnancy test and it showed nothing. Am I infertile? Please help. Its been 8 months since ive missed my period.

MD Gynaecology, MBBS

It is very unusual for a woman to have missed her periods for 8 months without pregnancy. Have you got a ultrasound done. You might be having secondary amenorrhea. You need to get some blood tests done to rule out major hormonal imbalance.

It is not alone dairy product but any fatty food like junk food will aggravate pco problems. Hence it is better to use it sensibly and also exercise regularly to burn the calories rather than completely avoiding it.

जानें खीरा (ककड़ी) के बेशकीमती फायदे, वजन घटाने और त्वचा के लिए भी लाभकारी।

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Delhi
जानें खीरा (ककड़ी) के बेशकीमती फायदे, वजन घटाने और त्वचा के लिए भी लाभकारी।

खीरा हमारे शरीर के लिए बहुत ही पौष्टिक और हेल्थी होता है।

ये आपके शरीर में विटामिन को बढ़ाता है और जमें हुए कारकों को सक्रिय करने के लिए विटामिन को प्रोत्साहित करता है जो कि रक्त के थक्का बनाने में मदद करते हैं।

खीरा रक्त का थक्का बनाने की क्षमता को भी बढ़ाता है जो कि रक्त को अत्यधिक बहने से रोकता है।

जैसा कि हमने ऊपर पढ़ा कि ये विटामिन को बढ़ाने व प्रोत्साहित करने में भी मदद करता है और यदि आपके शरीर में विटामिन की मात्रा पर्याप्त है तो ये रक्त को लगातार बहने से रोकता है।

साथ ही साथ इससे आपके नाक और मसूड़ों से भी रक्त के बहने में कमी आती है।

खीरा आपकी त्वचा को भी फायदा पहुंचाता है यदि आपकी त्वचा में जलन है या ज्यादा धूप से आप आये है और थका थका महसूस कर रहे हैं या आप की त्वचा में बहुत खीचाव है तो आप खीरे को खाने की बजाये काट कर भी अपने चहरे पर रक सकते हैं, इससे आपको 15 से 20 मिनट के बाद आराम महसूस होगा।

यदि आपकी आंखे सूजी हुईं है तो भी इसे गोल पतला काटकर आंखो में रखने से सूजन कम होती है।

 

खीरे में सिलीकोन और सल्फर होता जो कि बालों को बढ़ाने में सहायक होता है।

 

खीरे अपने कम कैलोरी और अधिक पानी वाले गुण के कारण उन लोगों के लिए बहुत ही फायदेमंद है जो लोग अपना वजन कम करना चाहते हैं।

पानी की ज्यादामात्रा और फाइबर होने के कारण खीरा आपके पाचन तंत्र से अपशिष्टों को बाहर निकालने और भोजन को पचाने में भी सहायता करता है।

रोज़ाना खीरे के सेवन से पुरानी कब्ज भी दूर हो जाती है।

खीरे की कड़वाहट की वजह से आप इसे खाने की बजाये जूस बनाकर भी पी सकते हैं।

इससे ये आपके लिए और भी लाभकारी होगा।

Is there any medicine to increase the level of regestrone n is it harmful to take regestrone tablets.
Regesterone is a synthetic progesterone and it is given as oral pills, harm is that it is masquiline hormone - leads to water retention, weight gain and low cycle, even after stopping this, it remains in the system for few months for normal unaffected cycle to start. Not given during pregnancy.

I am 26 year old married girl. My breast became huge after pregnancy. How can I reduce.
REDUCTION MAMMOPLASTY- is the treatment,it is surgical reduction of breast size with very gratifying results attained in a very short time.Surgery takes 2 hours and you may not need to be hospitalised more than a day. No one wants surgery unless it is necessary.There is no medication to give the results.Surgery is the only answer.The surgery is almost painless because there are enough medications to keep the pain under control.
