I m 26 year old female I have uterus which is divided into 2 parts, 1 is small and 2 is big. I get very much pain during my periods. Does division of uterus cases pain? 2. We are planning from past 6 months but I m not conceiving, does division of uterus cases pregnancy?

Yes uterine malformation may be associated with painful periods and subfertility. You will need a laparoscopy / hysteroscopy and dye test to evaluate your condition a bit further. Depending on the exact nature of the problem corrective surgery can be done at the same time.

My wife is 7th month pregnant. Daily she is suffering from back pain. What care to be taken to recover from pain.
Its normal to have back pain during pregnancy or after delivery,she can do hot fomentation,take rest and take precautions like sitting with a back support (pillow behind the back) And avoid using very soft mattress,she can visit physiotherapy centre for ante natal care and learn proper postures and exercises,precautions that can be taken after the delivery which will regain the lost muscle strength of the back.

My wife delivered twins by normal delivery before one and half month. Now we do not need another child for 3 years. Except condom what are the way of taking protection. We want to have unprotected sex. Please reply.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology

Ideal contraception for the lactating mother is copper t (iucd). While choosing a method of contraception, it is important that it not interfere with lactation or have negative effects on the infant. Iucd is more effective than condoms and progesterone only pills. Oral pills suppresses milk production. And there is no need to take daily pills with this method of contraception.

If you are sure you did not have sex, you can not be pregnant. Yes stress can give rise to such symptoms. However if this answer does not relieve your stress and you continue to have symptoms meet gynaecologist.

Curd (Dahi) - Why You Need it Daily in Your Diet?

Curd (Dahi) - Why You Need it Daily in Your Diet?

Unlike its tastier and tempting counterparts like cottage cheese and flavoured yoghurt, dahi or curd has always been a staple in a majority of Indian diets, but many people are not aware of the benefits proffered by this humble accompaniment. Curd has many health as well as nutritional benefits and having a bowlful of curd every day helps to regulate body temperature, improves digestion and saves you from recurrent stomach ailments.

There are various other advantages of consuming curd regularly.

Importance of having curd
Curd or dahi as Indians call it is in great demand all around the year, particularly during the summer months. It is a great tastemaker and incorporated in numerous Indian dishes that are important from both taste and health perspective. Besides curd improves complexion and in often cases, curd seems to be more beneficial than milk, the fermentation of which leads to the making of curd.

Nutritional facts about curd
In a cupful or 100 grams of curd, there are 4.3 grams of fat, 3.4 grams of carbohydrates, 11 grams of proteins, 17 mg of cholesterol, 36.4 grams of sodium and 10.4 grams of potassium. Curd is also rich in Vitamin A, D and B-12, magnesium and a good quantity of calcium as well.

Curd helps in digestion
This melange of nutrients present in curd gets easily absorbed by human alimentary canal and curd itself aids in digestion of other food nutrients. It also helps in maintaining the ideal pH balance and alleviates many stomach ailments and helps in relieving from dysentery.

Curd is good for teeth and bone health
Contrary to the popular belief, curd is much better for the maintenance of teeth and bone health due to its high calcium and phosphorus content. Both phosphorus and calcium are important for bones and teeth, and therefore, you must eat loads of curd or dahi regularly if you are dealing with arthritis and osteoporosis.

Curd triggers weight loss
Finally, the importance of curd in weight loss can never be overlooked. Curd is rich in calcium, which hinders the cortisol formation in the body. The lack of balance in cortisol content within the body may lead to various lifestyle-related troubles such as obesity, stress and hypertension. A recent research has informed that having 18 ounces of dahi daily aids in reducing stomach fat as more amount of calcium hinders the cortisol release by fat cells.

There is a lot more that dahi or curd can do for your health and beauty benefits, and a physician will be able to tell you more about this.

If there was break through bleeding within 7 days after taking emergency contraceptive pill then the pill was effective. If there was no bleeding, do a pregnancy test 10 days after missed period and consult doctor for further advice.

After HCG shot and ovulation my DGO prescribed progesterone 100 mg for 15 days starting from cycle day 16. For last two cycle I took NAC 600 mg and Clomid 50 mg along with Progesterone. After finishing 15 pills I got periods my within couple of days or sometimes on the day I finish it. I'm in progesterone pills for last 6 months. I thought it was the one that is barrier to get pregnant. Today is 2nd day of my periods and I ask about it to my DGO. She then prescribed me NAC and clomid. She said that she too has the same mind set in my case. For some women progesterone act as a hurdle for pregnancy. She quoted and asked me to come on day 11 for follicular study and hcg shot. So my doubt is. If I won't use progesterone this cycle. Does it delay my periods? For how many days the effect of pill remain in our body. Does it make any disturbance in this cycle? I asked it to my DGO. She said it may or may not delay periods. I'm posting here my query to avoid unwanted expectation due to delayed periods. Trying for more than a year after losing my precious baby on 14th week due to neural tube defect. I want him back soon. Enough is enough. Had a big gap. I too wanna enjoy motherhood. Please. I need your advice. Comfort me with your replies. Thank you in anticipation.

Pregnancy is possible only on one day of cycle, day of ovulation when ovum is released from ovary of woman. That is why couple normally wait for 12 to 24 cycles of unprotected sex around time of ovulation before going to Gynecologist or infertility specialist for further evaluation and advise. When you go to specialist lot of reports are done to rule out or confirm many factors. Assuming in you case other factors are ruled out (like semen of husband, post-coital test, open tubes, normal uterine lining) and treatment is going on for ovulation because that is the only factor- it takes long time as each cycle some treatment is tried and after proper ovulation with same treatment if pregnancy does not result, change in treatment happens. (Again important to consider that there are no other factors). If progesterone is given after ovulation it helps. You may go to MD like post-graduate Gynecologist or infertility specialist.

Hi , I totally agree with your doctor, you must get done your ultrasound lower abdomen earliest possible. It serves three purposes__ 1- rules out ectopic pregnancy, can have same picture but can cause emergency at anytime. 2- to confirm foetal cardiac activity which will prove viability of pregnancy 3- presence of any subchorionic bleed, shows threat to pregnancy in future. Ultrasound is completely safe in pregnancy, no side effects & don't worry every thing will be ok. God bless you.
