I have missed my periods. Its been delayed by 3 days. Am I pregnant? Pls suggest medicine for not getting pregnant.

DGO, MAOGD, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Panchkula
Hi welcome to lybrate. If you have missed periods for 3 days we cannot say you are pregnant. You should wait for 7 to 10 days after delayed periods. After that you should get urine pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy.

How to Deal With Pain After Delivery and Labour

FIASP, MD, MBBS
Pain Management Specialist, Delhi
How to Deal With Pain After Delivery and Labour

Pregnancy brings with it not only joy and celebrations, but also a lot of physical pain for the mother. This is not unexpected as the body has gone through a lot of transformation to nurture the baby within for almost 9 months and then finally deliver the baby. Whether it is a natural delivery or cesarean section, the immediate period after childbirth has a lot of pain to manage. Let us look at some of the major pains and ways to manage them - broadly categorized into abdominal and breastfeeding pain.

Abdominal pain. In the abdominal area, there are different areas that experience pain due to different reasons and need to be managed well.

Incision pain: If you had a cesarean section, then the incisions will itch and pain. Pain killers can be used for relief but the incisions will take some months to completely become normal. If there are associated symptoms like redness or bleeding, then it is a cause for concern.

Uterine contractions: With the uterus shrinking back to its original size after delivery, there are lot of contractions which can be painful. This will subside over the next few days but can be severe and take longer for second and third deliveries. This should be completely gone by the sixth week checkup.

Vaginal or perineal pain: If you have had normal delivery, then there would be an enormous amount of pressure in the vaginal and perineal (area between the vagina and anus) areas. There could even be tear in some cases (created by the doctor or accidental during birth) and would need repair. This can be more severe compared to other pains and will take longer to disappear. There could also be dryness in some women. The following will help ease the pain:

  1. Ease the pressure on the bottom by lying down as much as possible and resting
  2. Apply a cold gel pad to the area
  3. Warm baths
  4. Pelvic floor exercise which help healing by improving blood flow
  5. Use warm water to wash the area and pat dry to reduce the itching sensation
  6. Keep the area clean to avoid infection both to yourself and the baby
  7. opical creams may be used in some areas to relieve both the pain and the itching

Breastfeeding pain: An improper latch (the way the infant sucks) can lead to breastfeeding pain. A lactation consultant or a nurse can help train the mother and the infant. Breasts filled up with milk can also lead to painful, engorged feeling. Breast pumping or hand pumping can help relieve the pain.

These pains, though not deniable, can be managed with a little extra care so you can enjoy the newfound joy of motherhood.

How To Cure HAY FEVER With Homeopathy?

BHMS, MD - Homeopathy
Homeopath, Navi Mumbai
How To Cure HAY FEVER With Homeopathy?

Hay fever, also called allergic rhinitis is an allergic response to airborne substances such as pollen, dust mite or other allergens from plants or fungi. The symptoms of hay fever include sneezing, runny nose, watery eyes, itchy throat, sinus pressures and congestion. Unlike its name, hay fever does not cause any fever.

The allergy generally occurs seasonally, especially in high pollen months, spring, summer or early fall. Not all people are affected by this allergy. Some are mildly affected. For others, immune system misunderstands allergens as harmful and releases the antibody called IgE (immunoglobulin E) to fight with it. This causes symptoms of hay fever. The symptoms could range from a mild congestion or sneezing to sweats, blocked sinuses, headaches and fatigue.

Hay fever is common during childhood; however, it can develop at any stage in a person’s life. It is believed that people with a family history of allergy and asthmatic patients are at a higher risk of developing it. Children born during pollen months as well as babies exposed to cigarette smoke during early years are also at risk of developing this allergy.

A proper diagnosis of the problem is the key to its management. The allergy is generally diagnosed through its symptoms. Sometimes, a blood test is conducted to test the level of immunoblobulinE. The level from 0 to 6 indicates the severity of the allergic reaction.

Allopathic medication offers a combination of interventions like desensitisation, anti-allergen tablets, steroids and quick relief nasal sprays.

Homeopathy, on the other hand, offers a different way of intervention. The patient is treated as per the symptoms restoring the body’s ability to self-heal thereby decreasing dependability on drugs. The best part being homeopathic drugs are free from chemicals and have no side effects.

You can choose to visit a homeopathy clinic or even self-treat through drugs available at homeopathy outlets where detailed symptoms and its prescribed dose can be found out. However, it is important to follow a prescribed dose at right intervals to ensure maximum benefit.

Homeopathic Remedies 

  1. Allium cepa can be given when there is hay fever with too much runny nose and discharge is acrid. 
  2. Ars alb can be given when there is hay fever with intense thirst. 
  3. Nat mur can be given when there is hay fever with too much sneezing and frontal headache. 
  4. Merc sol can be given when the patient is extremely sensitive to heat and cold.
  5. Aurundo is prescribed in case of hay fever with excessive burning and itching in the nose, palate, eyes. 

All the medicines are generally indicated and needs a homeopathic consultation.

My wife have missed menstrual period her date was 18 th Feb.On doing pregnancy test at home its found positive. Today on consulting Drs & doing ultrasound its found that Sac is of 7 mm <5 week but no Embryonic node. Is there no chance of pregnancy?

MBBS, MD
Gynaecologist,
The pregnancy test being +ve and the ultrasound giving report of a gestational sac of 7 mm ( <5 weeks) without any embryonic pole or echo may mean that (a) it is an early miscarriage/ missed abortion, or (b) the pregnancy is viable but too early to be detected on this ultrasound right now, and will need a repeat ultrasound after say one week and embryonic pole will be detected later on and normal pregnancy will progress with treatment , and (c) rarely an ectopic pregnancy. But with the data you have given it is very difficult to pinpoint which is the possibility in your particular case. You may clarify with your doctor.

Hi , no you are not pregnant & this is also proved by pregnancy test. This can be just a normal variation of menstrual cycle so need not to worry & take care of your diet & physical activity & have stress free life, this will minimize hormone dependent problems. You can also have iron for 3 months.

What influences Influenza (causes and symptoms)

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
General Physician, Gurgaon
What influences Influenza (causes and symptoms)

Influenza or flu is a contagious respiratory infection that affects the lungs, throat, nose and occasionally, the ears. It usually does not require treatment but Paracetamol can provide relief from most of the symptoms. Rarely, influenza can lead to severe complications like pneumonia, sinus problems and asthma. Annual vaccinations can prevent these complications even if you do get a mild flu.
Causes
The influenza virus is air borne and can be spread through coughing, sneezing, skin to skin contact, or indirect contact like touching a contaminated object. Type A, Type B and Type C influenza viruses affect the respiratory organs.
People with weak immune systems are infected more easily than others- children under the age of 4, people above the age of 60 pregnant women, obese people and those who are suffering from kidney disorders and diabetes are at greater risk of infection. Air pollution also aggravates the problem.
There is also little chance that your body has the necessary antibodies to fight the virus if you have been infected before. This is because the influenza virus modifies constantly and new strains of the virus appear rapidly. So, the antibodies that work against one particular variant do not work effectively against the others. This is why vaccination is also not a foolproof preventive technique against this disease.
Symptoms
The symptoms of influenza begin to show within a few days after infection. In a few cases, the infection may be asymptomatic. When they do show, the symptoms are very common- high fever, shivering, a blocked and runny nose, frequent coughing and sneezing and chest congestion are the predominant signs. In the later stages, there are headaches, body aches, general fatigue, reddened and watering eyes, throat pains and difficulty in speaking.
In the cases where the patient is a child, there are a few other symptoms like digestive and gastrointestinal disorders such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal pain. The last two are especially common in children who have been infected by influenza virus Type B.
Aged people often have low resistance to the virus. This is why the flu quickly escalates and the complications like primary viral pneumonia or secondary bacterial pneumonia. In such cases, there are sever symptoms like breathing problems, the presence of blood in the sputum, red and itchy skin and petechial rashes (caused by minor punctures in the capillary blood vessels). If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

How the results differs from mini tummy tuck from tumescent liposuction for post pregnancy belly, does TL gives good result? Mini tummy tuck recovery time ?scars? please let me know.

MBBS, DNB - Obstetrics & Gynecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Choice of surgery is dependent on age, weight, build, profession, previous scars on body, past history of surgery. That decision is best taken by your surgeon. Liposuction and tummytuck both give good results. Recovery time for skin healing is 7 to 10 days. But you can do regular work earlier. In the hands of a good surgeon, scar is almost invisible.

Hello Dear,Periods occur when the egg formed during each menstrual cycle in the female body is not fertilized and hence ejected out of the reproductive system along with blood and several other tissue cells. The duration of each menstrual cycle is about 28 days Most women will experience their monthly period right from the time they are 13 to the time they are 50. For many women, their monthly period is nothing more than an annoyance; but other women may suffer some problems.

I have a question related to my periods. Every month my date of period extends by 3-5 days nd I have a backache before one week of my periods. When my periods start I have a severe pain for 1 day please tell me is there any need to worry. Also I want to know what weight I should have at this age of 27+

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology

Dear lybrate-user menstrual cycle can be from 22 days to 35 days. Majority of women have got cycle of 28 to 30 days but few may have 22 or 34/35 days. So far it is regular nothing to worry. Pain in lower abdomen and back during periods is suggestive of normal ovulation which is quite healthy. Simply take pain killers it will be relieved.

It's true that you need to be cautious so that you can continue safe pregnancy. Be in touch with the doctor and follow all the instructions. Call the doctor if any problem arises. Do not panic but be careful. Keep yourself cheerful and do not worry much. If needed you can add Homeopathy which is safe and gentle even in case of pregnancy. It can give a natural support to your pregnancy and help tide over the problem. You can contact me if needed.
