It is quite common to have breast pain and a a lumpy feeling in the breast between 25-35 years of age. This commonly occurs due to hormonal changes during the menstrual period. It is best that you get an ultrasound to rule out something serious. If the ultrasound is normal, there is nothing to worry.

How To Prevent Post Cesarean Wound Infection?

MBBS, MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology

How To Prevent Post Cesarean Wound Infection?

Having a baby is nothing less than a dream come true, but it comes with its own share of problems for new mothers. A lot of women today are opting for a C-section, or a Cesarean surgery to deliver their babies. While it is safe for most, at times certain complications can arise as a result of the operation.

As if life for mothers wasn’t tough already, post Cesarean wound infection is another concern some new mothers have to face. It usually occurs due to a bacterial infection in the area where the incision was made during surgery. If you have recently had a C-section, look out for signs in the first couple of weeks such as fever (100.5ºF to 103ºF), wound sensitivity and pain in the lower abdomen area. Other symptoms include swelling at the incision point or in the legs, discharge from the wound, smelly vaginal discharges or blood clots and difficulty in passing urine. If you notice any of these signs, act fast and consult your gynaecologist at the earliest, to avoid complications from the infection.

Why does it happen?
There can be various reasons that an infection happens, just like on any other part of the body where a wound is exposed. Generally, it is more prevalent among obese or overweight women or those taking any form of steroids. Other causes include, an incision closed with staples or nylon sutures, in cases of an emergency C-section, or from an infection of the amniotic sac.

Types and Treatment
C-section wound infections are of two types that is Cellulitis or wound abscess and thrush.

  1. Cellulitis and wound abscesses are caused by bacteria and are treated with antibiotics. If you’re in the hospital, you will be given the antibiotics intravenously, but if not, they can be taken orally as well. In case of abscesses, the pus is first drained out and smeared with antiseptic before being covered with gauze, after which the wound will heal on its own.
  2. Thrush is caused by a fungal infection and is normally seen in women taking steroids or in those who have a weak immune system. Anti-fungal drugs are provided to combat the issue.

How can it be prevented?
Here are some things new moms can do to prevent the C-section wound from getting infected:

  1. Regular follow-up visits with your obstetrician
  2. Practising good hygiene and healing
  3. Stay hydrated and drink plenty of fluids
  4. Avoiding any strenuous exercises that may put pressure on the abdomen area and stitches
  5. Resting as much as possible

Remember, even if you do develop an infection, it can be treated if addressed in time. New mothers need to take extra care of themselves, as a healthy mom, makes a happy mom!

Hormonal Imbalance In Men And Women!

MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Hormonal Imbalance In Men And Women!

Hormones are important messengers that play a pivotal role in the proper functioning of your body. Any imbalance in the hormonal level can throw life in jeopardy. Hormonal imbalance can affect a person physically, mentally as well as emotionally. In the present competitive world, with so much stress and anxiety, hormonal imbalance is on the rise. It can affect both men and women.

Factors responsible for hormonal imbalance in men and women

Many factors, either individually or collectively can affect and disrupt the hormonal balance in a person. The most common factors triggering a hormonal imbalance include

  1. Physical, mental and emotional stress.
  2. Menopause (in women) and Andropause (in men).
  3. Drugs and alcohol abuse.
  4. Unhealthy eating habits, leading to inflammation.
  5. Lack of any physical activity.
  6. Obesity, Type-2 Diabetes.
  7. The Endocrine gland does not function properly (due to an injury or an infection or old age). Hormonal imbalance may be age related. Certain chemicals (Diethylstilbestrol, DDT, Polychlorinated Biphenyls, Dioxin) also have the potential to disrupt the Endocrine function.

Symptoms of Hormonal Imbalance:
Some of the characteristic symptoms of hormonal imbalance include

  1. A sudden change in body weight (weight gain or weight loss).
  2. Anxiety, depression, and mood swings.
  3. Hair loss followed by thinning of hair.
  4. Irregular menses.
  5. Infertility.
  6. Erectile dysfunction.
  7. The appetite undergoes a change.
  8. A person may face digestive problems.
  9. Insomnia and extreme fatigue.
  10. Decreased libido.

Treatment:
Doctors may adopt any of the following treatments for hormonal imbalance

  1. Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT): This treatment helps women to deal with menopause better. During and after menopause, the levels of estrogen and progesterone, particularly, go for a toss. This therapy aims at maintaining the hormonal balance by replacing the hormones your body either fails to produce or synthesizes in very little quantity.
  2. Following a healthy lifestyle go a long way in improving the hormonal imbalance.
  3. Exercise regularly. Meditation, breathing exercise, cycling, morning and evening walks are great stress busters.
  4. Follow a healthy sleeping routine.
  5. Limit your alcohol and caffeine intake. Refrain from smoking.
  6. Avoid taking birth control pills.
  7. Maintain a healthy body weight.
  8. Include avocados, egg yolk, gelatin, carrots, coconut oil into your diet.
  9. People with hormonal imbalance can benefit from Omega-3 fatty. Walnuts, chia seeds, flax seeds, olive oil are a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids.
  10. Ayurveda and herbal medicines have helped many people with hormonal imbalance.
  11. Some medications may help to improve hormonal imbalance (strictly on doctor recommendation).
  12. In extreme cases, surgery may be recommended.

Health risks associated with hormonal imbalance:
Hormonal imbalance can have adverse effect on the health resulting in

  1. PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome): PCOS is characterized by irregular menses, infertility, hirsutism, hair fall, acne and weight gain. Women of reproductive age are mainly affected by PCOS.
  2. Low libido, tiredness, weight gain, erectile dysfunction, mood swings, and irritability (due to low level of testosterone hormone)
  3. Thyroid problems (Hyperthyroidism, Hypothyroidism and Grave's disease).
  4. Hormonal imbalance may also cause Diabetes and Adrenal failure.
  5. Irregular periods, mood swings, infertility, decreased sexual desire (low levels of estrogen hormone).

Hi, last week I had a protected sex with a call girl. I used a condom while penetration. No lip kiss or any thing. After 1-2 days, I am having throat pain and little bit cough and cold. I have read some where that it is a symptoms of STD. Is it so? Do I need to do test for STD or HIV? Is there any chance for HIV or any other STD?

PG Dip(psycosexual diseases), MBBS
Sexologist, Delhi
Do not worry if it was protected sex and std does not transmit by lip kiss. May be you are having viral cold and cough. Your guilty conscious of going to call girl is prodding you. Always clean your penis under running water after having sex outside the marriage.
