I have lots of pain in my period time Sometime I'm suffering from fever. And I have a tumor in my breast (lymph nodes category 2 according to my mammography report) Size of tumor is 3 c. M. What should I do?

PGDMLS, PGDHHM, LLB, PhD Surgery, MS - General Surgery

Generally this is due to a condition called fibroadenosis or a fibroadenoma or something more serious. Fibroadenosis appears to be the most likely diagnosis in your case. This is a harmless condition and is related to hormonal changes. It is usually more, a few days before the start of monthly menstrual period and becomes less after the periods. You might be able to feel a lump on catching with all the fingers of your hand but no lump when you try to feel it with the flat surface of the fingers / hand. Breast support with a tight fitting bra might give some relief. Medication can be of some help but that should be taken only after a physical examination by a general surgeon. Cancerous tumors are generally painless. General surgeon would advice a biopsy / fnac if he has any suspicion of cancer.

My wife is pregnant and the baby is 6 week older. She has high cholesterol thus, she was taking Astin D (atorvastatin) 10mg daily even after pregnant. Doctor says that we need to terminate the pregnancy because Astin D could have affected the development of baby. Do I need to follow doctors instruction of termination?

MBBS, DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology), MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology

Statins should be stopped when one is planning a pregnancy. Alrhough the risks are low, yet Statins belong to x category drug as per safety. Since the patiemt is young and if conceiving was relatively easy you can think of discontinuing this pregnancy and planning more carefully next time. But the decision making is entirely yours.

May I know what to take good diet after delivery to be healthy and what food not to take,

Dietitian/Nutritionist, Chandigarh
Hi lybrate-user after your delivery it is natural for you to focus all your attention on your newborn baby. But try to look after yourself as well by paying attention to your diet. Eating right can go a long way in helping you get back your strength and energy. After all, your baby needs a strong and healthy mum. And if you are breastfeeding, what you eat passes on to your baby through your milk. So all the more reason to eat well! your family and friends may have a lot of well-meaning advice about the foods you should have while you recover from the delivery. Traditionally, during confinement, women have been given high-calorie food like full cream milk, butter, ghee, dried fruits and sugar. While you do need extra calories if you are breastfeeding, you can get the vital nutrients in a way that doesn't necessarily mean piling on fat as well. We have rounded up a few foods traditionally given during confinement that are rich in minerals and vitamins that you need to recover from childbirth. Read on to find out what traditional confinement ingredients are particularly nutrient-rich and how you can eat them: oats dalia oats are an excellent source of iron, calcium, fibre, carbohydrates and proteins. As oats are high in fibre, they can also help keep constipation at bay. The most common way to have oats is to cook it in a pan and have it with milk, nuts and dried fruit. You can add chopped fruits like bananas (kela), apples (seb) or mango (aam) to increase the nutritional value or make savoury versions like oats upma or khichdi. There are also several quick cooking varieties that you can choose from. Turmeric (haldi) turmeric contains vitamins b6 and c, fibre, potassium, magnesium and manganese. So, it is packed with essential vitamins. Not only is it a standard ingredient in indian cooking, it has been used for centuries to heal external and internal wounds. There is some evidence to suggest that turmeric helps to reduce inflammation. It may also help in healing post pregnancy wounds and cure stomach disorders, although evidence is limited to support this. You can add about half a teaspoon of turmeric to a glass of warm milk. Dry ginger powder (saunth) saunth contains fibre, vitamins b6 and e, iron, magnesium, potassium, selenium and manganese. It is a commonly available ingredient whose supposed health benefits include anti-inflammation. In north india, saunth ke ladoos are common. In south india, chutneys are made from it. You can choose to add just a little dry ginger powder to your meals. Pulses and lentils (dals) pulses are considered an essential element of a well-balanced diet. They are rich in fibre, protein, vitamins and minerals. Pulses such as moong and masoor are easy to digest and you can have them in the form of halwa or khichdi. A bonus with pulses - they help to prevent fat from collecting in your body! carom seeds (ajwain) it is traditionally believed that ajwain, a good source of thymol, not only soothes pain from gas and indigestion, but also cleanses the uterus. There is not much evidence to support this belief, but thymol is known to have antioxidant, antibacterial, antifungal and antiseptic properties. You can make a range of dishes with ajwain from paranthas to halwa, or you could simply add it to your food as an extra seasoning. Some also make it a point to drink ajwain water every day. Finger millet (mandua) finger millet, mandua or ragi is an excellent source of calcium and iron, both of which you need in plenty after giving birth. It can help you regain strength after childbirth, and is a good alternative for mums who are allergic to milk and dairy products. You can use finger millet to prepare dosas, idlis, rotis and halwas. Almonds (badaam) almonds are rich in carbohydrates, fibre, vitamin b12 and e and contain minerals like magnesium, copper, manganese, potassium, calcium and zinc. As there are so many nutrients packed into an almond, it's an ideal food to have while you recover after childbirth. Almonds can be used in many recipes such as badaam milk, sheera, halwa and so on. If you aren't in the mood to cook they make a great snack to munch on! green vegetables green vegetables are a great source of iron, which you will need to help you recuperate. Consider eating spinach (paalak), beans (frans been), lotus stem (kamal kakri), fenugreek (methi) leaves, apple gourd (tinda), pointed gourd (parwal) or other such green seasonal vegetables. Fenugreek (methi) methi seeds are a great source of iron, calcium, vitamins and minerals. They are commonly considered to help prevent back and joint pains though there is little evidence to support this. You can use them while cooking dal, vegetables, pooris or meats. Fenugreek (methi) tea is also a popular drink for breastfeeding mums. Black and white sesame seeds (til) these small, flat seeds are high in calcium, iron, copper, magnesium, and phosphorous. With all these nutrients, sesame seeds or til are good to help replenish the body of essential minerals. They are also popularly considered helpful in regulating bowel movements. In north india, til ke ladoo are popular but there are many other sweets made of til such as til patti, rewri and chikki. Whatever you choose, make sure to have a well balanced diet with all the required nutrients. It's best to run your meal plans past your doctor. And if your doctor feels you need them, she might prescribe vitamin or iron supplements.

Suggest natural way to avoid pregnancy after sex. Had sex on 24th april. Got period on 27th april (on time). Still have chances for pregnancy?

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry

Natural ways to avoid pregnancy include sex during safe periods of menstrual cycle. This can be calculated according to your specific dates of menses. If you had periods regularly after having sex then there is no pregnancy for sure.

Green Tea: SIde effects and why you may need to avoid it

B.Sc.(Hons), P.G.Dietetics
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Gurgaon
Green Tea: SIde effects and why you may need to avoid it

Green tea has been promoted as one of the healthiest beverages around. It is made from the same kind of leaves (camellia sinensis) as generic black tea or oolong tea. The primary difference is that while processing the leaves for green tea, the withering and fermentation procedures are avoided, which helps the leaves retain more nutrients. However, green tea comes with quite a few side effects just like ordinary tea or coffee. They are:

1. Digestive problems
Since green tea is not put through the oxidation or fermentation process, the tannins present in the leaves are not removed. Tannins, can cause nausea and constipation by producing more gastric acid. Adding a little milk to your tea might help with this problem.

2. Reduced absorption of iron
Green tea contains catechins- antioxidants, which can block the absorption of iron from food. Iron deficiency has a number of negative impacts, the most threatening one being anemia where red blood cell formation is hindered. Anemia causes fatigue because sufficient oxygen is not circulated throughout the body due to low haemoglobin levels.

3. Problems with the nervous system
Green tea contains caffeine, just like tea or coffee, though its caffeine content is lower. Excessive consumption can lead to insomnia-like tendencies, heightened anxiety, frequent urination, irregular heartbeat, muscle cramps etc.

4. Risks during pregnancy
Caffeine decreases calcium content in the body, leading to weaker bones, which is an alarming symptom in an expecting mother. Also, caffeine, catechins and tannins are individually related to increased risks of miscarriage and other negative effects. Tannins and catechins passed on to breast milk can also block absorption of nutrients like proteins and fats in an infant's system.

5. Reactions with medication
Several chemical drugs are extremely reactive to the polyphenols in green tea, especially stimulant drugs like nicotine, ephedrin and amphetamine. Green tea reduces the functioning of lithium and dipyridamole. The polyphenols may also block the healing properties of the anti-cancer drug name bortezomib. Any kind of interference with your regular medication may impact your health adversely.

6. Negative impact on patients with glaucoma
The disease impairs the optic nerve and green tea increases the pressure on the eye within minutes of drinking it because caffeine accelerates intraocular pressure. The effects take more than an hour to subside.

I am 28 years old married. Me and wife are trying for a baby. Whenever we do the intercourse, y sperms are coming out of the vagina? And no pregnancy signs even after that. However it is normal that sperms are coming out. Then why my wife getting pregnant? What needs to be done? please suggest.

Gynaecologist, Jalandhar
It is the extra semen and not the sperms which come out and that is normal. Regarding pregnancy, I don't know for how long you are trying. If it is only 3-4 months, don't worry, just try in most fertile days of the cycle which are from 12th -16th day , counting from first day of menses

Hello lybrate-user! congratulations for the marriage. Don't worry about not getting pregnant soon after few months of marriage only. Be patient. You are so young! if your periods are regular then you'll conceive. Don't start taking any treatment for this till one year of marriage. You can start taking folic acid supplement though. All the best!
