You need to get the latest test results for the analysis. So get T3, T4, TSH done, get it done on fasting that is do not take any thing including tea or coffee and get the test in the morning hours. At the same time on empty stomach get the Lipid profile test also done which will give the status of cholesterol in the blood and the first test will give thyroid hormone levels basing on which we can suggest some remedial steps. If you are already using throid medicine get the test done after taking the tablet with water and on empty stomach. Come back with the results and names of the medicines with strength if you are using any. In the open questions we can not give medicines names so you need to come in private consultation

After first pregnancy chances increases. You have done unprotected sex very close to your ovalution time. You can check pregnancy once 7 days over period date. Right now tests are not effective. Consult for further guidance.

common issues due to being under-weight are: • Bone loss • Heart problems • Infertility • Anaemia and • Weak immune system Generally, people take wrong path to gain weight in absence of proper knowledge and start eating high calories food like pizzas, parathas and other junk foods. One can gain weight but results would not be favorable at all. These things may lead to low metabolism, weak digestion system, apart from that high blood pressure, high sugar and other heart related issues may occur. So this is not at all a good way to gain weight According to Ayurveda following are the foods which are very helpful in weight gain: • Figs (Anjeer) • Raisin (Kishmish) • Ashwagandha powder • Shtaravi powder • Dates (Khajoor) • banana • mango • Clarified buttor (Ghee) • Milk • Honey • For weight gain100% safe and natural medicenes available in our purna cosmetic laser skin and slimming centre in 1 month 4-5 kg increases without any side effects

Breast Lumps - How Can They Be Treated?

Breast Lumps - How Can They Be Treated?

A breast lump is an enlargement, swell, protuberance or a bump that is different than the breast tissue surrounding it. Breast lumps can appear in men as well as women and they can be benign or malignant. Causes of benign breast lumps are as follows:

  1. Fibroadenosis: Also known as Fibro-cystic breast disease, it is a benign condition that affects the breast. It may affect either of the breasts or both. One of the major symptoms of Fibroadenosis is a breast lump. Usually, the lumpiness disappears after the menstrual cycle is over. Fibroadenosis occurs because the breast tissue doesn’t respond well to the hormonal changes during the menstrual cycle.
  2. Fibroadenomas: Fibroadenomas occur because of abnormal response to the hormone oestrogen. The lumps are usually well formed and round, around the milk ducts of the breast. Breast lumps due to Fibroadenomas are called breast mice, because they move around the breast. In some cases, they disappear and in some, they tend enlarge during pregnancy.

Other benign causes of breast lumps are breast abscesses, breast cysts, lipoma (lump of fat), mastitis (infection in the breast tissues), fat necrosis (another name for breast lumps) and intraductal papilloma (benign tumour of the milk ducts in the breast). A breast lump that is firm, well defined and doesn’t move around, i.e. it doesn’t disappear after your period or pregnancy, may be a result of breast cancer.

Treatment of breast lumps
The treatment of a breast lump depends on its cause. Benign breast lumps usually disappear over time. Otherwise following treatments can be considered as per the doctor’s discretion-

  1. Medication: If the breast lumps are painful or increase over time, it is advisable to take medication.
    • Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and other painkillers like paracetamol
    • Danazol, Tamoxifen or Bromocriptine are administered to treat breast pain as well
    • Antibiotics which are administered to cure breast abscesses that are caused due bacterial infections
  2. Limiting the amount of fat in the diet or wearing well fitting bras also reduces the amount of pain due to breast lumps.
  3. Certain types of breast lumps are filled with fluid or pus. This fluid can be drained through a procedure called aspiration or drainage.
  4. A radical way to treat a breast lump is surgery. Many a times, these lumps get bigger and painful and the most effective way to deal with it is to remove it. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

Dear user. Could be bacterial vaginosis. Besides itching, other symptoms that come with bacterial vaginosis are inflammation, burning, discharge, and a fishy-smelling odor. Sexually transmitted disease (STDs). Chlamydia, genital herpes, genital warts, trichomoniasis, and gonorrhea all can cause vaginal/vulvar itching and irritation and other symptoms. Therefore I suggest you to consult a gynecologist. Take care.

On my 3rd day of periods I was having a heavy flow n with blood some skinny thing came out skin n blood type thing so what was that please help me out.

That is endometrial cast or decidual cast which is expelled from the uterus when it had grown more under the influence of hormones. There is no need of extra treatment for this. This is most probably happening because of your weight which is causing hormonal changes.

I had sex wit my hus a week before. Suggest some natural home remedy for abortion.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS

Hi Rayan. its not a necessity that you would get pregnant surely. The chances of conception depend on factors such as ovulation etc. I suggest you wait for your period and if they get delayed by a week then do a pregnancy test and check. Anyways there are no home remedies which can abort a pregnancy for sure. I suggest you wait and then check. If required we can handle it later if the test does come positive. Hope this information has been helpful. All the best. Let me know if I can be of any further assistance to you.

For pain you can take any pain killer. If you r married then you need to check for pregnancy. If not then wait for another month. As you were taking novelon, means you have this problem regularly. If you r overweight you r likely to be suffering from pcod. Your wt not mentioned.

Any bleeding in pregnancy is highly abnormal. Please do not ignore it to save mother and baby. Get her to gynecologist physically for check up immediately and get an usg done.
