Hey doc We are planning to go somewhere by train. Journey will be overnight. I am worried about my 1.5 years baby because he used to drink milk 2-3 times in night and there is no milk available on the way. What should I do? In what ways I can prevent milk?

Morning sickness during #?pregnancy is caused by hormonal changes, vitamin deficiency, low blood sugar, strong smells, foul odors, lack of exercise, fatigue,stress, constipation, anxiety and worry about pregnancy: Remedies 1. Take Vitamin B-6 2. Take zinc supplements 3. Eat a protein-rich snack before bed. 4. Go for a walk or enjoy some mild exercise to relieve hormonal activity. 5. Avoid spicy, fried, rich, fatty, and greasy foods. Also avoid any caffeine or artificial sweeteners. 6. Get plenty of fresh air. 7. Eat 5 to 6 small, frequent meals every few hours throughout the day 8. Suck on lemon drops. 9. Try to get a lot of rest! Being over tired makes morning sickness worse. 10. Drink lemonade. 11. Chew on fennel seeds. 12. Stay hydrated. 13. Drink ginger tea . 14. Eat rusk or sweet biscuit before getting up from the bed. 15. Do not sniff.

I am 18 years old girl. I have pcod. I am having irregular periods and also having thick n coarse hairs all over body and face. These hairs growth are just like male pattern growth. They are increasing very fast. Please help. What should I do to rid of this?

I am 18 years old girl. I have pcod. I am having irregular periods and also having thick n coarse hairs all over body...
Pcod is a problem in which a woman's hormones are out of balance. The sex hormones get out of balance. Normally, the ovaries make a tiny amount of male sex hormones (androgens). In pcos, they start making slightly more androgens. This may cause you to stop ovulating, get acne, and grow extra facial and body hair. Excess hair growth (hirsutism) slows when high androgen levels decrease. In the meantime, you can remove or treat unwanted hair with: laser hair removal, in which the hair follicle is destroyed by a laser beam. Electrolysis, in which your hair is permanently removed by electric current applied to the hair root. Depilatories, which are chemical hair removal products applied to the skin. Waxing, which pulls the hair out by the root. Shaving. Tweezing. Bleaching. Hair removal methods differ in cost and long-term effectiveness. Before trying one, ask your doctor about risks of infection and scarring.

Early Signs of Pregnancy

Early Signs of Pregnancy
Early Signs of Pregnancy

Every woman is different. So are her experiences of pregnancy. Not every woman has the same symptoms or even the same symptoms from one pregnancy to the next.

1. Fatigue - If you're suddenly exhausted, it might be a response to the increasing hormones in your body. Don't treat fatigue with excessive caffeine if there is a chance you may be pregnant.

2. Sensitivity to certain Smells – Certain pleasant or unpleasant smells can make you nauseous. If you're repulsed by certain smells, or have an increased sensitivity to odors.

3. Nausea and Vomiting – This is due to rising hormones levels in early pregnancy

4. Breast Tenderness – Tender and heavy-feeling breasts, darkening of the areolas and even more pronounced veins on your chest can be a first sign that you're pregnant. Get a well fitted bra to ease the discomfort

5. Frequent Urination – In early pregnancy the uterus grows and pushes on the bladder, triggering the urge to urinate more often.

6. Shortness of Breath - This is because you need extra oxygen due to the growing embryo

7. Spotting and Cramping – This is due to implantation of the fertilized egg to wall of the uterus. Is it PMS or pregnancy? It's hard to tell, but if you're feeling crampy, it might be your uterus stretching to get ready for a baby.

8. Mood swings- These are also related to changes in hormones

9. Constipation - The higher levels of the hormone progesterone can make you constipated. You swear you fit in your skinny jeans just last week. If you're feeling a little puffy or backed up, it might be extra progesterone due to pregnancy, which slows down your digestive system.

10. Late Period
Many of the early signs of pregnancy are also symptoms of PMS. How to tell the difference? The most telling clue yet will be a missed period. If your cycle is fairly regular and you're late, you should head to the drugstore for pregnancy test kit or a gynecologist
A pregnant woman could have all of these or maybe have only one or two. If any of these symptoms become bothersome, then visit your Gynecologist and Obstetrician for consultation.

Hi doctor, I am on estrogen from the last 10 years. Now I want to plan my baby. What should I do? please help me.
Hello, My best wishes are with you. You have to stop taking these pills and you can try for the baby immediate next month. For getting pregnant you have to know the days of ovulation. And by keeping relations in these days may give you a pregnancy. These facts you should know. 1. Normally in midcycle the egg comes out of ovary and waits for the sperms in the fallopian tube. If relation is there in this period and sperm reach the egg and fertilise it then pregnancy is there. 2. The days of ovulation can be made out by experiencing a midcycle increase in temperature and thining of cervical mucous which you can find on your fingers. 3. Not to mention that these pills have no effect on your future baby. So relax and try with a positive attitude and surely you will have a result soon. Thanks

If you are wooried about sexually transmitted infections I should advise you that condoms do not provide 100% protection. You can get yourself examined by a urologist who can order an infection screening. If you are worried about unwanted pregnancy for her please use a emergency contraceptive pill if within 72 hours of sex.

Well, you are in confusion then you have two options 1. Get pregnancy test done from her morning urine sample 2. She could take oral I - pills for contraception. Does disturbs timing of periods. 3. Ask your girl friend whether she knows that you ejaculated inside or outside.

I am going to have sex with call grl. Dnt knw whether she had HIV or not. Can I do mouth to mouth kissing with her.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Having sexual relation with a partner who is supposedly having multiple sexual partners can be potentially unsafe, no matter what way you do it. By the way, kissing does not cause hiv infection unless the oral cavity or lips have injuries or infected saliva is transferred in large amounts. However some other sexually transmitted diseases can spread through the oral route.

Simple Tips to be Active

B.Sc. Food & Nutrition, M.Sc. Food & Nutrition

Simple Tips to be Active

Take an after-dinner walk
Walk during your breaks and at lunch
If possible, schedule a" walking" work meeting
Park in the farthest spot from the grocery store or mall (it is easier parking as well).
Avoid valet parking (saves money too)
Take the stairs instead of elevators or escalators
Walk while your kids practice or warm-up at their sporting events instead of sitting in your comfy chair (this one I know from experience).
Walk to drop off/pickup kids from school.
Take public transportation; walk around the terminal when waiting for the train/bus/light rail.
Walk the dog. Have you heard our pets are getting fatter too?
Avoid the drive-thru. If you must eat at a fast-food establishment, park at the farthest spot and walk in. And, of course, choose a healthier food option!
Walk to visit friends or neighbors.
Like to golf? walk instead of renting the cart.
Read/watch tv on a treadmill (or stationary bike).

Breast Reduction

MBBS, MS - General Surgery, M.Ch - Plastic Surgery, Fellowship in Aesthetic Surgery, MRCS
Cosmetic/Plastic Surgeon, Gurgaon
Breast Reduction

Large breasts are not just aesthetically unappealing but can also lead to a lot of structural problems including neck and back pain. This condition, called macromastia, is when either breast weighs more than 500 g. Breast reduction, also known as reduction mammoplasty, is aimed at reducing the size of the breasts followed by reshaping them if required. This will not just produce an aesthetically appealing image for the person but also can help relieve problems like neck and back pain.

Indications - When should you have breast reduction?

  1. There is constant back, shoulder, head, and/or neck pain
  2. Constant irritation of skin under the breasts
  3. Breathing difficulty
  4. Grooves on the shoulders from bra straps
  5. Poor posture
  6. Numbness in parts of the breasts and upper chest due to excessive weight
  7. Unhappy with the overall appearance

While these are the problems that mandate breast reduction, the following is a pointer towards who can go for the surgery. Needless to say, not everybody is a candidate.

  1. The person should have overall good health
  2. No active diseases or pre-existing medical conditions.
  3. Skin has adequate elasticity and can resume a firm consistency after the surgery
  4. Emotional and mental stability with loads of patience
  5. Done with childbirth and breastfeeding
  6. Be practical and have realistic expectations from the surgery

Overview of the procedure: 

It is most often a combination of liposuction and gland reduction. Liposuction forms a small part of the procedure and it is the gland reshaping that actually reduces the size. There are many ways to do it and different surgeons may prefer different techniques depending on the size of the breast, quality of the skin, expectation of the patient. The two most common ways are one in which the final scars lie around the areola and vertically downwards and the other in which the scar is anchor shaped with an additional horizontal limb along the breast crease under the breast.

To achieve the best desired results, the first step is to have a detailed discussion. A thorough physical examination followed by mammographic evaluation will help arrive at the best possible technique. Along with the desired results, also discuss side effects, limitations, risks, postoperative care, recovery, and of course costs. Other factors are also to be considered including age, gestational history, feeding history, medication allergies, and detailed medical history including bleeding disorders, lung disorders, cardiac issues, etc.

A decision is then finally made to go ahead with breast reduction, which will not just improve her looks but also her confidence and relieve her of problems that back ache and neck pain.
