Im a sexually active girl I had itching n irritation in my vagina with no foul smell or discharge. So I used clotrimazole vaginal gel. Now I am getting a red liquid thing out which is not as thick as mucus nor it is like blood. So may I know why this is happening n my periods date is after 3 days i.e 8th.

Hello, This may be an early onset of menses this time, just wait and watch if there is no itching vagina or burning micturition.

Periods delayed by 3-5 days one month need not be remarkable and can be observed. I would not advise you to interfere right now other than taking a pregnancy test. If the UPT is negative, you should wait and watch for appearance of menses. Your previous history of PCOD reveals the probability of hormonal disturbances that may well be present even now. Vaginal infections, however, happen in presence of lowered immunity, and may or may not be associated with hormonal reasons affecting the nature of vaginal epithelium and making it prone to infections. I'd suggest you to wait and watch for appearance of menses for may be even 1 more week. If not you can get tested for PCOS again and check your blood hormone levels, all of this after you have ruled out pregnancy.

Dear user. FERTILE PHASE is the phase of a female's menstrual cycle when an egg (ovule) is released from the ovaries. In humans, ovulation occurs about midway through the menstrual cycle, after the follicular phase. The few days surrounding ovulation (from approximately days 10 to 18 of a 28 day cycle), constitute the most fertile phase. So if you have ejaculatory sexual inter course from day 10 from the first day of period and to day 20, the chances of pregnancy are much more. There are many determinants of pregnancy. You should be sexually matured. Your partner should be sexually matured. The period of your partner should be in the fertile stage. Female egg and male sperm cells should be healthy enough. Then female uterus should be capable to get conceived. If all these are satisfied, the pregnancy could be a result. Take care.

Go Nuts Over Coconuts: 7 Super Cool Benefits Of Naariyal Paani

Go Nuts Over Coconuts: 7 Super Cool Benefits Of Naariyal Paani

Coconut water or nariyal paani as we know it, is a staple in many homes during summer. Starting the day with a glass of coconut water has more benefits than you can imagine. We in India have been fortunate to have abundant access to coconut water that is healthier for your body than any sports drink, cola drink, sugary premix or fruit juice.

Nutritional facts

From a nutritional point of view, water from a green tender coconut is packed with vitamins, electrolytes, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, phytohormones, and cytokines. It has more potassium than in four bananas; is fat-free with hardly any calories, and very easy to digest.

Health benefits

Here are some benefits of drinking coconut water regularly.

1. Coconut water is a diuretic

When consumed regularly, it keeps your renal system (kidneys, bladder, ureters and urethra) healthy, prevents the occurrence of kidney stones, flushes out toxins like uric acid, phosphates, from the body via urine, and prevents urinary problems.

2. Coconut water helps reduce weight

300 ml of coconut water has just 60 calories, compared to 139 calories in a cola drink, 142 in fruit juice and a whopping 200 in a sports drink. It provides nutrition, keeps you feeling full and suppresses the appetite. Having coconut water with breakfast or lunch keeps you from snacking between meals or reaching for high-calorie meals and keeps water retention in check.

3. Coconut water slows down the aging process

Coconut water hydrates the cells and helps delay aging at a cellular level, combats the effects of pollution, stress and irregular food habits. All this is due to the presence of cytokines, which are a group of proteins that improve the quality of cells and regulate immunity.

4. Coconut water rehydrates and restores

Loss of vital nutrients through sweat is one of the main reasons we feel sapped of energy, listless and lethargic during summer months. Coconut water replenishes the body of vital nutrients, gives energy and gets absorbed by the body instantaneously. For severe cases of dehydration, add a pinch of salt to coconut water for results that are the same as any ors.

5. Coconut water helps maintain blood pressure

Coconut water which is packed with potassium, magnesium and vitamin c is a natural way to main blood pressure. Potassium counteracts the effects of sodium (found in salt) which is known to increase the blood pressure. It also maintains a healthy heart by lowering bad cholesterol, reduces plaque formation in the arteries, increases circulation, and maintains good cholesterol in the body.

6. Coconut water is good for the skin

Topical application of coconut water prevents acne, reduces blemishes, tightens pores, lightens scars, reduces wrinkles and slows down the aging of the skin. Coconut water hydrates the skin and hair both from inside and outside.

7. Coconut water is an anti-bacterial

Coconut water naturally prevents infections, boosts immunity, and maintains the healthy flora and fauna of the digestive system. The natural sugars in coconut water destroy microbes and disease-causing pathogens making it a delicious and preventative addition to your diet.

The anti sperm antibody may be produced due to various reasons. But often treatment is not needed. If at all treatment is needed, we have to make sure there is no other reason of infertility. Then we can treat it by drugs or sperm washing.

Can an extremely skinny girl have pcos? As I m vry skinny and no symptoms of pcos but my ultrasound reports are showing it. I am 21 and my weight is 43k kgs.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Chandigarh
Being very thin does not rule out pcod. It is the hormonal imbalances that leads to improper ovulation and pcod. Yes it is more common in obese or overweight. It will depend on your usg report and competency of your radiologist to diagnose pcod in usg. It also depends whether you have following clinical features like oligomenorrhoea (delayed menses), signs of hyperandrogenism - acne, hirsutism, weight gain and polycystic ovaries in usg. You may get a repeat usg from another radiologist for confirmation. Also get an lh, fsh assay to confirm pcos. But if you do not have any of the above symptoms, pcos is less likely.

Since rubbing alone caused pain, it is most likely to be an abrasion, where exactly is the pain. You might have had a urethral injury or abrasion in the pubic region, consult a doc and get a course of antibiotics as necessary, if there is abrasion it needs to be treated as well. All the best.

Pcos is a lifestyle disorder which needs treatment lifelong .it may not bother you if correct lifestyle measures are take. Tell her to be active ,keep weight in check, do 1 hour of physical exercises, tell her to do AMH levels for ovarian reserve n tests like fasting sugar n insulin levels n also sugar n insulin levels post 75 gm glucos in 2 hrs (OGTT) .DHEAS levels. She needs to be monitored for ovulation n guided thru the cycle. Needs detailed evaluation .try to consult earlier than late. Husband semen analysis should be done to rule out other part.

If you are carrying a recesive gene of a and your husband too has a recessive gene of a, there is a possibility of baby getting 2 recessive genes to make it 1 dominant gene of a to get blood group of a positive. Get a genetic profile done for both of you or ask the extended family of both sides about their blood groups, otherwise keep living with doubtful guilty feelings of babies being changed in hospital.

5 Symptoms Of Heel Pain And It's Treatment!

MBBS, D.ORTHO, DNB (Ortho), Fellowship Joint Replacement, MNAMS

5 Symptoms Of Heel Pain And It's Treatment!

Heel pain is a common problem in the body where the affected person experiences pain radiating from the heel bone. Heel pain usually progresses slowly over time, it is recommended to consult a medical professional, if heel pain turns severe. The pain tends to be most severe after one has been inactive for some time such as after waking up in the morning. 

Causes 

Heel pain is usually caused when tissues present in the bottom of the heel (Plantar fascia) is inflammed. These tissues connect the heel bone with the bones of the feet and acts as a shock absorber. Tears form in these tissues when they are damaged or when they get thicker. These tissues are at an increased risk of wear and tear for those who are over 45 years old. The risks also tend to increase if the person is obese or whose occupation requires standing for lengthy periods of time. 

Among other causes of heel pain are heel bone fractures, fat pad atrophy (a condition where a layer of fat present under the heel bone is reduced) and bursitis (inflammation of the fluid filled sacs present around the joints). Peripheral neuropathy is a condition where damage occurs in the peripheral nerves (that transmits signals between the central nervous system and the rest of the body), this can cause pain in the heel. 

Symptoms 

The symptoms of heel pain include: 

  1. Experiencing pain while jogging or walking 
  2. A feeling of pins pricking the heels after waking up in the morning 
  3. Inability to put weight on the heel 
  4. Painful swelling 
  5. Pain in the heel accompanied by fever 

Heel pain can be prevented by taking certain preventive measures such as restricting usage of high heeled shoes without proper support and stretching the heel regularly. Medications such as painkillers are used to treat symptoms of heel pain. Consult a doctor for accurate medicines !!

HIV Positive Women - 4 Associated Issues

HIV Positive Women - 4 Associated Issues

People who have the Human Immunodeficiency Virus, commonly known as 'HIV', are known as HIV positive people. The virus is the agent of AIDS that is currently incurable. HIV is known to alter the human immune system and makes people much more susceptible and vulnerable to diseases and infections. Body fluids such as semen, blood, breast milk, vaginal fluids etc. of an infected individual contain the virus which can be passed from one person to another during blood-to-blood and/or sexual contact. HIV positive women may even pass on this virus to their children during pregnancy, delivery or by breastfeeding them. HIV is also transmitted during oral, anal or vaginal sex, by contaminated hypodermic needles and by blood transfusion. 
Mentioned below are a few issues that an HIV positive woman has to face apart from discrimination and stigma, fear of infecting their children or partners, violence and abandonment. 

1. Menstrual Disorders: Changes in menstrual cycles are frequently reported by HIV infected women. However, menstrual dysfunctions are due to varied reasons that aren't directly related to the disease. Although most of the HIV positive women suffer from amenorrhea i.e. the unusual absence of periods, it is not just due to HIV but also because of weight loss or immunosuppression.  

2. Contraception: It is very important that the contraception an HIV positive woman chooses not only acts as birth control but also to prevent the transmission of sexually transmitted diseases and HIV. Although condoms do not provide exceptional pregnancy prevention, they are excellent at preventing transmission of the HIV virus. Permanent sterilization is usually the most chosen contraceptive method for HIV serodiscordant couples.

3. Surgical Complications: HIV positive women are at a higher risk of undergoing gynecologic surgery. This is because they are more vulnerable to pelvic infectious disease that requires surgical intervention. There is also a greater risk of developing vulval cancer in HIV positive women. 

4. Fertility: There has been an increase in the number of seropositive women contemplating pregnancy and childbirth. Most couples resort to assisted reproduction to lower the risk of horizontal HIV transmission. Studies show that undergoing HIV treatment and having an undetectable viral load is helpful in preventing the transmission of HIV. It is important to consult a medical expert if you are unable to get pregnant after at least 6 months of trying. Fertility problems are more common in HIV positive women than HIV negative women.
