I had unprotected sex with my fiancé on my ovulation day. He ejaculated outside. I took unwanted 72 within 50 hours of sex and I had very light brown coloured discharge (but no bleeding) for around 3 hours after 8 days of having the pill and just 4 days before my next period is due. Is this discharge a sign of early pregnancy?

Hello- breast feeding (before an year after pregnancy) provides natural contraception, so no need to take i-pill or other medications for abortion. You can not get pregnant during breast feed. Secondarily any medicines you are going to take in breast feeding period will surely affect the health of your child as the medicine will pass on from you to your baby via breast milk.

Hello, Since how long you have been suffering from this problem? Any associated symptoms or complaints? Any medical condition do you have? Have you got your investigations done (if yes, share the reports with me)? Answer all these questions for proper diagnosis and proper treatment. Any nutritional deficiency can also lead to irregularity. Take more of green vegetables, nuts, salads, seasonal fruits, yellow coloured veggies, milk & milk products, plenty of water and enough of sleep & rest. Take homoeopathic medication for your irregular menses – Schwabe's Pulsatilla 200/ once daily for 10 days (not to take during menstrual flow), Schwabe's Five Phos. And Alfaalfa Tonic – both thrice daily for 1 month. There after revert me back..take care.

I have sex with my wife on daily basis without using any precautions but my wife is not getting pregnant.
If you r married since more than a year with regular sex (3-4 times a week) that is the time you should seek medical help. There r 2 basic tests which r needed in such case. Semen analysis (15 million/ml is normal count) and hsg to find out about the fallopian tube potency. If both r normal which is usually the case next treatment is with climiphene citrate for 5 days with follicular monitoring.

Hello sir, I'm 26 year's old I have found my right side breast is small and left side is big is it cancer. Please tell me.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
No mam, only disproportion due to adherence of breast tissues to chest wall or enlargement of breast due to lump is suspicious. Some amount of natural disproportion is usually present in some females. Look for any lump or thickening. Since you are young you can get an ultrasound done to look for any small lump or lesion.

शतावरी के उपयोग, फायदे व नुकसान - Shatavari Uses, Benefits and Side Effects in Hindi

MBBS, M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Delhi
शतावरी के उपयोग, फायदे व नुकसान - Shatavari Uses, Benefits and Side Effects in Hindi

शतावरी एक वसंत ऋतु का सब्जी है जो कि लिली (लिलीसेए) परिवार के अंतर्गत आता है। प्राचीन काल  में, शतावरी  एक  कामोद्दीपक  के  रूप  में  प्रसिद्ध  था। सदियों पहले, मूत्र प्रवाह बढ़कर गुर्दे को साफ करने और गुर्दे की पथरी को रोकने के लिए इस जड़ी-बूटी का इस्तेमाल रोमनों और यूनानियों द्वारा किया जाता था। तथा एशिया में, शतावरी का उपयोग तंत्रिका संबंधित समस्याओं, खांसी और दस्त के इलाज के लिए किया जाता था। शतावरी एक स्वस्थ पोषक तत्व समृद्ध वनस्पति है जिसमें वसा और कोलेस्ट्रॉल सामग्री नहीं होती है। इसमें बहुत कम कैलोरी और सोडियम हैं। इसमें विटामिन ए, सी, ई, के, बी 6, फोलेट, लोहा, तांबे, कैल्शियम, प्रोटीन, और फाइबर जैसे विटामिन और खनिजों की एक विस्तृत श्रृंखला है। 
 

शतावरी के लाभ:
शतावरी  के  डंठल  आमतौर  पर  एक  सब्जी  के  रूप  में  खाए  जाते हैं। इसकी जड़ें, बीज और अर्क का उपयोग विभिन्न बीमारियों के लिए किया जाता है। शतावरी कई लाभ प्रदान करता है जैसे कि:
1. वजन घटाने के लिए: शतावरी  में केवल  वसा  और  कैलोरी  कम  नहीं  है,  बल्कि  इसमें  बहुत  से  घुलनशील  और  अघुलनशील  फाइबर  शामिल  हैं, यही कारण है कि यह  वजन  कम  करने  का एक  अच्छा  विकल्प  है।
2. मूत्र और गुर्दे के लिए: शतावरी  एक  प्राकृतिक  मूत्रवर्धक  के  रूप  में  कार्य  करता  है। यह अतिरिक्त नमक और तरल पदार्थ को शरीर से निकालने में मदद करता  है। इसलिए यह विशेष रूप से एडिमा और उच्च रक्तचाप से पीड़ित लोगों के लिए अच्छा है।
3. दिल का स्वास्थ्य: शतावरी  में  उत्कृष्ट  विरोधी  भड़काऊ  प्रभाव  और  उच्च  स्तर  एंटीऑक्सिडेंट  हैं,   दोनों  हृदय  रोग  के  जोखिम  को  कम  करने  में  मदद  कर  सकते  हैं।
4. उम्र के बढ़ने को रोकने के लिए: एंटीऑक्सिडेंट  ग्लूटाथियोन   उम्र  बढ़ने  की  प्रक्रिया  को  धीमा  करता है। और फोलेट, संज्ञानात्मक गिरावट को रोकने के लिए बी 12 के साथ काम करता है।
5. स्वस्थ त्वचा के लिए: यह  चेहरे  की  सफाई  के लिए इस्तेमाल  किया  जा  सकता  है। यह त्वचा की समस्याओं जैसे कि घावों और मुँहासे को रोकने और उपचार करने मे मदद करता है। एंटीऑक्सिडेंट ग्लूटाथियोन त्वचा को सूरज की क्षति और प्रदूषण से बचाने में मदद करता है।
6. गर्भावस्था के दौरान: इसमें मौजूद फोलेट  महिलाओं   के लिए  गर्भावस्था   के  शुरुआती  चरणों  के  दौरान  आवश्यक  है। फोलेट भ्रूणों में तंत्रिका-ट्यूब दोषों के जोखिम को कम कर सकता है।
7. कैंसर को रोकने के लिए: शतावरी में उपस्थित सल्फोराफेन कैंसर को रोकने में मदद करता है। शतावरी में बड़ी मात्रा में एंटीऑक्सिडेंट और एंटी-इन्फ्लमाटरीज भी हैं, जो कि कैंसर के जोखिम को कम करने में सहायक हैं।
8. हैंगओवर का इलाज: शतावरी में मौजूद खनिजों और अमीनो एसिड हॉगओवर को कम करने में मदद कर सकते हैं और अल्कोहल में विषाक्त पदार्थों से जिगर की कोशिकाओं को सुरक्षित कर सकते हैं।

इसके अलावा, शतावरी निम्न स्थितियों के उपचार में भी मदद कर सकता है - गठिया या जोड़ों के दर्द, तंत्रिका के दर्द या न्यूरिटिस, अपच तंत्रिका विकार, महिला हार्मोनल असंतुलन, कब्ज, गैस्ट्रिक अल्सर, जिगर संबंधी विकार, कम कामेच्छा, अवसाद, मौसा, उच्च कोलेस्ट्रॉल, एचआईवी संक्रमण, एकाधिक काठिन्य, क्रोनिक थकान सिंड्रोम, उच्च बीपी आदि।
शतावरी के दुष्प्रभाव 
इस जड़ी-बूटि का कोई बड़ा साइड इफेक्ट नहीं है, यहां तक कि बड़ी औषधीय मात्रा में लेने पर भी। हालांकि, बदबूदार मूत्र देने के अलावा त्वचा पर सीधे लगाने पर यह छोटे एलर्जी प्रतिक्रियाओं का नेतृत्व कर सकती है। यह फुफ्फुसीय या फेफड़े से संबंधित एलर्जी संबंधी प्रतिक्रियाओं का कारण बन सकता है जैसे नाक, अस्थमा, खाँसी, गले की समस्या आदि। 
जिन लोगों को प्याज, लहसुन और अन्य संबंधित सब्जियों से एलर्जी है उन्हें शतावरी से बचना चाहिए क्योंकि यह लीलासी परिवार का हिस्सा है।

10 Ways to heal your Mole Naturally

MBBS
Doctor, Begusarai
10 Ways to heal your Mole Naturally
1. Garlic

Garlic is one of the most effective home remedies for moles because it contains enzymes that help break down the clusters of pigment-producing cells. Plus, it helps lighten the dark pigmentation.

Crush a fresh garlic glove and place it on the mole.
Secure it with a bandage and leave it on overnight, or at least for four hours.
Do this daily for a few days. The mole will then fall off naturally. This method is said to give positive results with merely five days of daily application.
Make sure to disinfect the area with rubbing alcohol or another disinfectant before repeating the process daily. Plus, to protect the skin surrounding the mole, apply some petroleum jelly or oil.

Warning: applying garlic on skin can cause redness and irritation.

2. Apple cider vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is a very popular home remedy for mole removal. Due to its acid content, it helps scab the mole and makes it fall off over time.

Dip a cotton ball in apple cider vinegar and place it on the affected area. Secure it with a bandage or medical tape and leave it on overnight. Do this daily for about 10 days or until the mole falls off.
Alternatively, you can rub warm water on the mole or lightly scrape the surface with an emery board and then apply cider vinegar on it until it turns white. Leave it on until it dries naturally. Do this several times a day.
Apple cider vinegar is likely to make the mole worse in the initial few days, but it will get better in a week. If it leaves a scar, apply coconut oil.

Note: to protect the skin around mole, apply petroleum jelly on the surrounding area before applying apple cider vinegar.

3. Castor oil

Castor oil helps remove warts, moles, and skin tags. Being a discutient, it helps dissolve and eliminate unusual growths. This method is not likely to leave scars. However, it tends to take a lot of time as it gets rid of moles one layer at a time.

Mix a pinch of baking soda and a few drops of castor oil. You can also mix in ground aspirin.
Gently rub the mixture on your mole.
Leave it on for a few hours until it dries naturally.
Do this twice daily for about one month.
If you do not have baking soda, you can use castor oil alone.

4. Flaxseed oil

Flaxseed oil is particularly useful for removing raised moles. It softens the moles and loosens them around the edges so they can easily come off.

Mix enough finely ground flax seeds and honey with flaxseed oil to make a paste.
Apply it on the affected area and leave it on for at least one hour.
Follow this remedy three times a day for a few weeks.

5. Iodine

A tincture of iodine can also be used to remove moles and skin tags. It triggers natural cell death and eliminates the clusters. You can get iodine tincture from a drug store.

Clean the affected area and apply a drop of 5% iodine solution on your mole. For flat moles, you can also scratch it slightly with an emery board before applying the iodine.
Cover it with a bandage or gauze and leave it on overnight or as long as possible.
Repeat the procedure daily for a week or two.
If you do not want to use a bandage, then apply the iodine solution two or three times a day and leave it on until it dries completely.

Note: iodine will remove moles without scarring, but it is likely to stain the skin. To avoid this deep purple staining, apply a little lotion or petroleum jelly around the mole to protect the surrounding skin.

6. Pineapple juice

Fresh pineapple juice can help lighten the pigmentation of moles, thereby making them less noticeable.

Soak a cotton ball in pineapple juice and apply it on your mole.
Leave it on overnight or until the juice dries.
Do this several times a day for a few weeks or until your mole fades.

7. Grapefruit seed extract
Grapefruits

Being rich in vitamin e and flavonoids, grapefruit seed extract works as a good natural home remedy to get rid of moles.

Apply one drop of grapefruit seed extract on your mole, cover it with a bandage or gauze and leave it on for a few hours. Do this two or three times a day for about one month.
Alternatively, you can combine one part grapefruit seed extract and 10 parts avocado oil. Apply it on the affected area and leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes. Do this daily until you are satisfied with the results.

8. Onion juice
Onions juice
Onion juice can help get rid of moles and maintain an even skin tone because of its acidic properties.
Extract fresh onion juice and apply it on the affected area using a cotton swab. Leave it on for 30 minutes or more and then wash it off. Do this two or three times daily for at least three weeks.
Alternatively, apply a mixture of equal parts of onion juice and apple cider vinegar. Leave it on overnight or at least for half an hour. Do this daily for a month or until your mole fades away.

9. Frankincense
Frankincense oil
Frankincense essential oil, being astringent in nature, helps dry up a mole and remove it layer by layer.
Dilute frankincense essential oil by adding eight teaspoons of olive oil to one teaspoon of this oil.
Dab it on your mole and leave it on for a few hours.
Do this two or three times a day for a few weeks.
To prevent scarring, continue the treatment for several days even after the mole disappears.

Note: do not use this remedy if it causes skin irritation.

10. Aloe vera
Aloe vera gel

Unlike other acidic ingredients, aloe vera gel works as a mild natural remedy for removing and lightening skin moles.

Apply fresh aloe vera gel on the mole and secure it with a cotton bandage.
Leave it on for three to four hours to allow the aloe to be absorbed completely.
Do this two or three times a day for a month, or until you are satisfied with the results.
Before trying out these remedies, especially the ones with strong ingredients like garlic and apple cider vinegar, make sure your skin is not sensitive to them. Plus, if the remedy worsens the skin condition then discontinue its use.

Will I be able to surgical abortion in the 8-9 week of pregnancy? What are the after effects? Will be able to continue my office?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
If pregnancy is between 7-12 weeks; surgical abortion is the only option. Advantages of surgical abortion quick procedure. Complete abortion easily verified by evaluation of aspirated products of conception. Takes place in a hospital so sterilization or placement of an intrauterine device (iud) may be performed at the same time as the procedure. It can be performed under local anaesthesia if woman is properly motivated and counselled. Disadvantages of surgical abortion requires instrumentation of the uterus. Small risk of uterine or cervical injury. Timing of abortion controlled by the doctor and hospital. Anaesthesia wneeds to be administered. Most doctors perform this procedure under short general anaesthesia. Woman needs to be in the hospital for at least 6 hours. Effect of sedation will be there throuout the day. You can join work after 1-2 days rest.
