I have polycystic ovarian cyst in uterus. So my menstruation cycle is once in 2 or 3 months. What treatment should I do?

You need to consult gyne near by for medication according to the symptom. Along with that you need to regulate you lifestyle. Treatments depend on your symptoms and whether you are planning a pregnancy. You may also take medicine to balance your hormones. Regular exercise, a healthy diet, weight control, and not smoking are all important parts of treatment for polycystic ovary syndrome (pcos) eat a balanced diet that includes lots of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat dairy products. Get regular exercise to help you control or lose weight and feel better. If you aren't planning a pregnancy, you can also use hormone therapy to help control your ovary hormones. To correct menstrual cycle problems, birth control hormones keep your endometrial lining from building up for too long. This can prevent uterine cancer.

Frankly there is no permanent cure for pcod or pcos, it needs to be managed to prevent problems. Treatment goals are based on your symptoms, whether or not you want to become pregnant, and lowering your chances of getting heart disease and diabetes. Many women will need a combination of treatments to meet these goals. Some treatments for pcod include: lifestyle modification. You can help manage your pcod by eating healthy and exercising to keep your weight at a healthy level. Limiting processed foods and foods with added sugars adding more whole-grain products, fruits, vegetables, and lean meats to your diet birth control pills. For women who don't want to get pregnant, birth control pills can help control menstrual cycles and to clear acne for women looking for pregancy: lack of ovulation is usually the reason for fertility problems in women with pcod. Several medications that stimulate ovulation can help women with pcod become pregnant. It is advised that you should consult gynecologist who can help you based on your symptoms and requirements to manage pcod.

If it is 9 th month and you are sure they are less better to confirm that everything is fine either by foetal monitor (non-stress test) or ultrasonography with biophysical score.

Yes you can use premarin cream. One way to use it is to apply a small amount locally everyday for 6 weeks and then twice a week for another six week and see if that helps. These are steroid creams so you have to consult a doctor if you use it for longer periods of time

Dear lybrate user probably you are having secondary amenorrhoea there can be several cause for it but it needs to be ruled out on basis of pathological reports. It can also be post pills effect, severe illness, stress, emotional disturbances and so on. However homeopathy has answers for all its variants. For now please use pulsatilla 200 c twice for 5 days and revert back.

Abnormal hair growth affects 5-10% of all women and a much higher percentage of women with PCOS. Interacting factors - hormonal, genetic, and lifestyle - combine to determine how much hair you have, and where it grows. Hirsutism is thought to be mostly due to excessive levels of androgenic hormones. However, what you eat, whether you exercise, how well you sleep, how you manage stress, and the pollutants you are exposed to directly influence what your genes do. So your facial and body hair growth is partially under your control. It is only a hormonal imbalance that you can take steps to correct. When you take the corrective steps, the inappropriate hair growth should diminish.

Hi Doctor, I would like to know few doubts related to my wifes health. Its now about 6 months after our manage. marriage happened on Aug 2015. Later after some time it was found that my wife have PCOD and she started taking tablet for 3 months. In 3 months period got regular and as per advise from doctor the medicine was stopped. After that from Jan 2015 we are trying for Kid and till now no success. Recently about 3 weeks back she started showing many symptoms like vomiting tendency, black out in front of eyes, getting tired soon and we consulted doctor. Doctor advised it was because of anemia and gave few iron tablets. Routine using, blood and thyroid test happened. No pregnancy test was advised or done by doctor. For our satisfaction we used pregnancy kit and it has not shown any positive results till today. Now she is having vomiting tendency early morning and at times she tells she have sour/sweet taste in mouth and skips away food. Now, its already time for next period, Her period date should happen between 10th - 15th of month. For this month Feb period did not happen. Last period there was more bleeding one one day alone. Last period happened on Jan 10. Now its Feb 25 and period did not happen yet. Today morning we did pregnancy test and kit showed negative. My doubts are: a) Is she still having PCOD? B) IS this anemia? C) Is the kit showing wrong result. Should we confirm pregnancy through blood test or something? D) She is very much slim, will the PCOD cause problem for her in pregnancy?

According to your above information it shows that she is pcod remain. For confirm diagnosis do usg of lower abdomen which confirm all your doubts clear for both pregnancy and pcod. Sometimes due to medicine vomiting and weakness may cause. May be due to low blood pressure blackout cause. Pcod is one of the cause in delay pregnancy. I suggest you do usg and show me the report.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease - Symptoms and Treatment

MD PULMONARY, DTCD
Pulmonologist, Faridabad
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease - Symptoms and Treatment

The lungs are made of tubes through, which air passes in and out for exchange of gases, taking in alveoli. It is a disease of alveoli to which finer air conducting tubes are attached. Over a period of time, with age and exposure to various agents, these tubules get obstructed. The amount of air that can pass through these is reduced, leading to reduced oxygen supply to the lungs and thereby the various body organs.

Symptoms
The symptoms of COPD can be easily understood if we realize how COPD is caused. The progressive blockage of the air tubes causes less oxygen to reach the tissues, which is the most essential agent for all tissues and organs to function. Reduced supply produces a generalized limitation in physical activity. There are two main components to COPD - chronic bronchitis and emphysema. The symptoms indicative of COPD are as follows:

  1. Chronic cough: Also referred to as smoker's cough, the cough is relentless and does not subside with regular cough treatment. This is one of the first indications of COPD.
  2. Mucus buildup: There is constant buildup of mucus which gets expelled during coughing. The person never feels completely clear of mucus, and the regular cough expectorants do not help relieve the symptoms.
  3. Fatigue associated with limited activity: As noted earlier, the reduced capacity of the organs limits their activities. Therefore, regular activities like walking short distances or climbing stairs can induce fatigue.
  4. Shortness of breath: The above fatigue is associated with shortness of breath, even with small physical exertion. A person with COPD will see marked tiredness and reduced ability to perform routine chores and feel a tightness in the chest.
  5. Wheezing: Passage of air through the obstructed air tubes produces a whistling sound or wheezing. It is more pronounced when there is mucus accumulation in the airways.

Rarely, Frequent respiratory infections, more frequent flu attacks, swelling of the feet and ankles, cardiovascular disease, weight loss, and morning headaches.

Treatment
While there is no cure for COPD, once it sets, the following are some ways to slow its progression and reduce severity of the symptoms:

  1. Bronchodilators: Dilate the air tubes and ease flow of air
  2. Corticosteroids: Help reduce inflammation and thereby improve airflow through the tubes
  3. Flu vaccination: Helps curb the frequent flu attacks
  4. Antibiotics: To contain infections
  5. Pulmonary rehabilitation: A combination of breathing exercise and patient education to improve lung function.
  6. Oxygen therapy: In very severe cases, oxygen may be required.
  7. Lifestyle changes: Eating healthy foods, preventing exposure to dust and smoke, quitting smoking, breathing exercises, bi-annual medical check-ups to monitor lung functions are essential.

Knowing that you have COPD is the first step towards managing COPD, which can be managed effectively.

You should lose weight, obesity is one of the reasons of hormonal imbalance resulting into delayed periods. Besides that, get an ultrasound done to rule out PCOS. Get T3T4 TSH levels also to rule out hypothyroidism. All the best.

Hiv is an infection means virus has enter in body. And aids is symptoms of many infection. Means aids occur when immunity has declined and other opportunistic infection has occurred due to increased in hiv. Patient can remain asymptomatic for 8 ton10 years after acquiring hiv. So as per your question as you didn't had any symptoms possibility s very less. But to know it I will advise to go for test.

DGO, MBBS

If the both tubes are blocked then best treatment is test tube baby. However it costly and success rate is 30-35%. Also sometimes tubes can be opened by a small procedure called- hydrotubation.

Last year, I fall in love with a guy. We both love each other. After 5-6 months being only talkative, he now insists to make physical relationship. Though we have kissed each other. But, is it right to go beyond this? Will there be any health related problem after that? Pls suggest.
