There is no treatment for missed abortion except getting it cleared by latest methods (will tell you later) This generation is lucky to get it diagnosed at 8 weeks or sometime later ,because of ultrasound facility available everywhere , years ago , women used to keep waiting / imagining fetal movements and doctors had to do per abdomen examination along with internal examination to match the dates along with development of fetus , it used to be a difficult task to declare a missed abortion or a still birth because even x-ray ( not done during pregnancy ) was not of much help. If your wife is 9 weeks with no heart beat , medical abortion can be done , D& C will be required only if some pieces are left, tiny membranes which do not show on ultrasound and woman keeps bleeding for more than 10 days or she develops fever due to uterine infection , A pack of 5 tablet is available on prescription of a doctor , it is written clearly on pack as to how to take tablets - 1 tab on day 1 , 1 tab twice daily on day 2 & 3 even if abortion looks to be complete on day 1 itself but the process of complete abortion takes 3 days , therefore course should be taken as advised.

One week before periods and one week after periods is supposed to be comparitively safe but not 100% so if you want yo avoid pregnancy you should always use contraception mid cycle is the maximum fertile period.

What Foods to be taken and to be avoided during pregnancy. And remedies for vomiting. Is ice cream safer to eat?
Ice cream is good and do not over eat. Any food is fine and you have to eat homemade foods. No food has to be avoided as such.

Its normal to have heavy flow once in a while .but if it continues like that only, you should get an ultrasonography done to get to know the underlying cause.

How to Stop Mild Obsessive Compulsive Behaviour

FIPS, PGDMLS, DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
How to Stop Mild Obsessive Compulsive Behaviour

Obsessive compulsive behaviour is form of anxiety disorder in which unreasonable thoughts and fears, which are obsessions that lead one to do repetitive compulsive behaviour. Root causes of obsessive compulsiveness are complex and often deep seated. The underlying emotional states may include the fear of unknown, not being in control, negative outcomes, failure, rejection, shame, annihilation or embarrassment

You can eliminate mild obsessive compulsion easily, whereas, severe obsessive compulsiveness, require support of medical and mental health professionals.

When you start pondering or obsessing over an activity, you must try to stop the negative pattern, and provide control and security. A good anchor code stops an obsessive thought pattern and provides fact-based security for new action. One can get it under control and recover from it, however at the present, there is no cure. It is a potential that will always be there in the background, even when one's life is no longer affected by it.

The treatment for obsessive compulsive behaviour depends on the how much the condition is affecting the daily life of the person. There are two main treatments, firstly cognitive behavioural therapy, which involves graded exposure and response prevention and the second being medication. The cognitive behaviour therapy emboldens one to face one's fear and let the obsessive thoughts occur without neutralising them with compulsions. In second case, treatment is by medication to control one's symptoms by altering the balance of chemicals in brain.

Obsessive compulsive behaviour that has a relatively minor impact on one's daily life is usually treated with a short course of cognitive behavioural therapy. Cognitive behavioural therapy involves exposure and response prevention that is used to help people with all severities. People with mild to moderate behaviour usually need about 10 hours of therapist treatment, combined with exercises to be done at home between sessions. Those with moderate to severe symptoms may need a more intensive course of therapy that lasts longer than 10 hours.

During the sessions, one works with therapist to break down the problems into their separate parts like physical feelings, thoughts and actions. The therapist encourages you to face your fear and let the obsessive thoughts occur without putting them right. It requires motivation and one should start with situations that cause the least anxiety first. These exposure exercises need to take place many times a day, and need to be done for one to two hours without engaging in compulsions to undo them. People with Obsessive compulsive behaviour find that when they confront their anxiety without carrying the compulsion, the anxiety goes away. Each time, the chances of anxiety reduces and last for a shorter period of time. 

Once you have one exposure task, you can move on to a more difficult task, until you have overcome all of the situations that make you anxious.  It is important to remember it can take several months before a treatment has a noticeable effect. It is extremely vital to remember that no one is perfect, nor can anyone recover perfectly.  Even in well maintained recoveries, people can occasionally mess up and forget what they are supposed to be doing.

Kindly explain me - Is it happening for the first time? Since how long you have been suffering from this problem? Is there history of the same in your past as well? Any associated symptoms or complaints? Any medical condition do you have? Have got undergone any investigations so far? Answer all these questions for proper diagnosis and proper treatment. Any nutritional deficiency can also lead to delayed menses. Also, if you are married and you do have active sexual life, get the pregnancy test done first and share the report with me. Meantime, suggesting you general tonics which will supply your body with calcium and iron - Five Phos. and Alfaalfa Tonic - take both the medicines thrice a day daily for 1 month.

Your acne is due to hormonal imbalance. in women estrogens - feminising , progesterone- masquiline are in balance. if androgenic hormones are more in females , acne ,facial hair and male type body with broad shoulders does happen. in men also there are 2 types of hormones in balance. you are taking thyroxine also. you need a good endocrine ( hormone) doctor who can adjust the dose of hormones to be given from outside in addition to hormones produced by body naturally.

Can we have sex during periods time? If not how many days we have to stay away after periods?

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
Can we have sex during periods time? If not how many days we have to stay away after periods?
It is absolutely safe to have sex during periods.There is only religious belief not to have sex during pregnancy as woman is Dirty or UNCLEAN during this time.Although sex is safe from pregnancy point of view but your risks of sexually transmitted diseases and infections are higher than normal during this time because the cervix opens to allow blood to pass through. Unfortunately, this creates the perfect pathway for bacteria to travel deep inside the pelvic cavity. You are also more likely to pass on blood-borne diseases like HIV and hepatitis to a partner during your period and more likely to develop yeast or bacterial infections because the vagina's pH during menstruation is less acidic. You can have safe unprotected sex during Mensturation and 3 days after completion of menses if menses lasts for 4-5 days.
