Tretiva 20 capsule is highly unsafe to use during pregnancy. Seek your doctor's advice as studies on pregnant women and animals have shown significant harmful effects to the developing baby.

The best thing would be you can do pro, microneedling or co2 fractional laser therapy for acne scars which usually yields very good results.

I don't think that you should use these medications without your doctors prescription. They might increase your lipid profile and you might face some bone deformities if kept unchecked. Kindly contact an expert to know if you even need these tablets.

First u need to do ultrasound of abdomen. PCOD/PCOS is a common hormonal disorder in women which can lead to weight gain and irregular periods. While most women depend on pills to deal with it, these simple changes in your lifestyle will help you deal with the condition in a better way. 1. Nutritional approach: Deficiency of micronutrients contributes to insulin insensitivity and compromise ovarian function. So, • Completely stay away from processed/ refined cereals (which have a high glycemic index or GI). Switch to wheat, rice, jowar, ragi, barley (which have low GI) and enjoy your roti, parantha, pulao, biryani, dosa, poha, upma etc. • Eat an adequate amount of lean proteins like dal, milk, eggs, fish, yogurt, cheese, paneer, lassi, sprouted legumes. • Include good sources of omega-3 and omega-6 present in nuts, seeds, ghee, olives, coconut etc. Our body needs essential fatty acids for absorption of fat soluble vitamins like A, D, and E. • Alpha-lipoic acid improves glucose uptake in cells, promotes weight loss and improves the health of ovaries. It is found in flaxseeds, walnuts, spinach, broccoli, peas, Brussels sprouts etc. • Micronutrients like selenium, zinc, chromium, magnesium, niacin, and riboflavin improve sugar control and promote hormonal balance. These can be obtained from a variety of whole grains, nuts, green leaves, fresh fruits and veggies, egg, seafood etc. • Vitamin B12 is essential to support the function of ovaries. So include dairy (especially curd, paneer), eggs, seafood, and sprouted/fermented items. • Calcium in abundant supply helps to overcome premenstrual cramps. • Include supplements of above-mentioned nutrients as diet may not provide enough because their requirement is above normal. • Most importantly, eat local, seasonal, freshly prepared food items, stay away from food items that have long ingredient lists as they are 'processed' and have a number of additives (preservatives, artificial colors, flavor enhancers et al). 2. Exercise strategies: Regular workouts are non-negotiable. They are essential to burn off fat stores for hormonal balance and regular ovulation. A minimum of 150 minutes a week is recommended. Divide your time between strength training, cardio exercises and yoga for optimal results. Just like a diet, your exercise must be balanced too. 3. Sleep: Adequate sleep is non-negotiable too. Sleeping at a more or less fixed time every day and for an adequate number of hours is a prerequisite to keep hormones in sync. 4. De-stress yourself: Love yourself more than anyone else, prioritize your health, learn to say no, take time out to exercise and relax. Pursue your favorite activities, learn a new skill, and never ignore your body signals. For more details u can consult me.

1. It all depends on how long have you been taking the medicine and how much your acne has reduced 2. If you have joint pains it could be due to the side effect of the medicine but if you are having good improvement in your skin problem it will be inadvisable to stop the medication without the advice of the dermatologist you have to weigh the pros and cons 3. It is better to get a liver function test and lipid profile done if you have been taking for more than 3 months.

Hi, tretiva is a medicine which has good effect on acne but it has multiple serious side effects. So please do not take it without consultation with your dermatologist who will be able to decide the exact dosage and duration of it and also it needs few investigations before we start it.
