Had a miscarriage in december. Hubby is using steroids now. What can we use to fall pregnant faster.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
You should avoid next pregnancy for 6 months from the last abortion. Chances of repeat abortion or pretem delivery increases if one becomes pregnant within 6 months of miscarriage. Also if abortion/ miscarriage was caused by any viral infection, then it will get cured automatically within 3 months time. Use contraception for 6 months. Best one to use are oral contraceptive pills.

Symptoms and Risk Factors Associated with Bulimia Nervosa

MD - Psychiatry, senior resident, MBBS
Psychiatrist,
Symptoms and Risk Factors Associated with Bulimia Nervosa

Bulimia Nervosa is an eating disorder which is marked by the tremendous compulsion to binge eat, and then adopt extreme measures to avoid putting on weight. It usually affects men and women of all ages. Bulimia Nervosa makes you extremely restless, when all you think about is how to undo the binge eating.

Signs that you are suffering from Bulimia

  • You are unable to stop eating
  • You consume food very secretively when nobody is around
  • You eat till you almost feel sick
  • You rarely eat normally; you either overeat, or you go on a fast
  • You exercise vigorously after eating to burn off the calories
  • You use a lot of laxatives, or enemas
  • You try to vomit out the food you have consumed because you feel guilty
  • You have a very poor image and perception about your own body.
  • You have low self esteem, and you consider yourself to be worthless and unattractive

Physical signs of Bulimia Nervosa

  • Scars on the knuckles or hands; from trying to run your finger down your throat to induce vomiting.
  • Saggy and puffy cheeks
  • Discolored teeth; from throwing up every time after you have binge eaten
  • You experience very frequent fluctuations in weight

Risk factors with Bulimia Nervosa

Bulimia Nervosa is a very complex psychological issue, and the following factors tend to increase the risk of this disease:

  • Gender - Women are more likely to suffer from bulimia than men.
  • Age - Bulimia normally affects people in their late teens and early adulthood.
  • Biology - Bulimia may also be linked genetically, with evidence that if you have close relatives with this disorder, you are more likely to suffer as well. Deficiency of the chemical serotonin in the brain might also play a leading role.
  • Media and peer pressure - Media has this tendency to feature skinny models and this adversely affects the youth who tend to be guided by what the media projects.
  • Sports or other artistic pressures - If you are an actor, or a dancer, there are higher chances of you suffering from Bulimia if you are encouraged to eat less and exercise a lot more to be in shape all the time.

Hi, my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 59. In 2012. She had mastectomy for her left breast. Her tumor size was 2*2*1.5. 15 lymph nodes were dissected. They were free of tumor. Her deep resection plane is also free of tumor. Her er n PR were positive n her was neg. She did not receive any radiation n chemo. Instead she was asked to have letrozole for 5 yrs. I want to know her prognosis.

As per your reports she was pt1n0, hormone receptor positive, her 2 negative disease. In this selected class of patients, we avoid radiation and chemotherapy. And give hormonal treatment only. Having excellent prognosis. To justify role of chemotherapy in this group, we now have a test called oncotype dx (was not available in 2012). But overall your mom in a curative stage. We recommend three monthly follow ups for two years and then six monthly for next three years (total five years). Then yearly life long.

Bleeding may not happen after consumation of the marriage even in a normal female. If they r concerned about her then she can get herself examined by a gynecologist and remove everyone's concern

9 Foods That Can Reduce Your Blood Sugar Level

9 Foods That Can Reduce Your Blood Sugar Level

High blood sugar occurs when the insulin in the body fails to metabolize the sugar from the food, which raises the amount of glucose in your blood. It is a metabolic disorder which can be managed effectively with the help of lifestyle modifications such as exercise and food. This article is going to focus on the foods that you can eat to lower your blood sugar levels.

Here are 9 foods that you can use to reduce blood sugar levels:

  1. Cinnamon: Cinnamon is a herb which is very effective in getting your blood sugar down to manageable levels. You can simply sprinkle cinnamon on your food before eating it.

  2. Fenugreek (methi): Fenugreek is a common spice which is used in almost all Indian cuisines. It has a number of health benefits, one of which is reducing blood sugar levels. Soaking fenugreek in water and then drinking it the next day is a very effective remedy in combating sugar problems.

  3. Garlic: Not just for sending away the vampires!, it is also very effective in blood sugar control. Extracts of garlic have been shown to increase insulin in the body which is required to metabolize the sugar in the body.

  4. Heart Healthy Fats: Heart healthy fat based foods such as nuts and seeds are good for increasing the good cholesterol levels (HDL) in the body. Avocadoes contain nutrients which lower the risks of various diseases such as diabetes. In a nutshell, these fats make the cells of the body less resistant to insulin.

  5. Blueberries: Blueberries contain anthocyanin (water soluble pigments) which is very good for your health. They also contain fiber in large amounts which make you feel fuller faster. This fruit has also been shown to improve insulin sensitivity in the body.

  6. Vinegar: Vinegar is an age old remedy to control blood sugar levels; it contains acetic acid which causes a reduction in certain harmful enzymes in the stomach. Vinegar is also known to prevent blood sugar spikes when consumed with food.

  7. Complex Carbohydrates: Complex carbohydrates raise your blood sugar but not like its cousin, simple carbohydrates. Simple carbohydrates cause an immediate spike in your blood sugar levels where as complex carbs provide a steady stream of energy. So drop that packet of refined flour and get that whole wheat variant.

  8. Cherries: Cherries, especially tart cherries and dark sweet cherries, are full of anthrocyanins. Insulin resistance prevents insulin from working properly to control blood sugar in normal ranges. Eating a diet high in anthrocyanins can mean improved use of insulin and lower blood sugars.

  9. Nuts: People who eat nuts regularly have lower rates of heart disease than people who don't eat them. Even among the healthiest eaters, the ones who also eat nuts boast the best health record. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

I am 29years old. I have been married for 4yrs. I had a miscarriage on 23rd of april, 2015. As my lmp I was 9weeks pregnant. On my 8week I had my first ultasound and my ultrasound showed it there was only a 4weeks 3days gestational sac. No yolk or fetal pole was seen. After that I had my second ultasound on the day I lost my baby. The result was the same as my first ultasound. No development at all. It was not an ectopic pregnancy. I was very scared. And I am worried about my future pregnancy. When will I be pregnant again?

Worry will not solve the issue. So, stop worrying. Now most likely the problem is some genetic defect in the baby. Still, to be 100% sure, as you already lost 2 babies, we should start full investigations and check ups of both of you. If the cause is found, we will treat it. If no cause is found, even then your chance of having live baby at term is nearly 80%. So, don't get scared.

Can a woman expecting a child lick lemon. And what's the effect of chewing ginger in the body.

MD-Ayurveda, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Sexologist, Haldwani
Can a woman expecting a child lick lemon. And what's the effect of chewing ginger in the body.
Hello- According to ayurveda consumption of excessive sour diet like lemon, tamarind etc during pregnancy can cause negative effect on the eye sight of the upcoming baby and he or she can get spectacles from a very small age (it is very common now a days). Apart from this the baby can also develop white spots in his skin which can be seen at the time of birth. So if possible take control of your cravings, you can go for Pomegranate if want to consume some thing sour, it won't affect your child's health and even boost up your hemoglobin.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Sometimes your breasts can produce milk even if you're not pregnant. A rare cause of high prolactin levels is a benign growth in the pituitary gland that over-stimulates the prolactin-releasing tissue. It is for this reason that I would ask you to see your doctor. Take care.

Ipill sometimes do not help if fertilisation takes place earlier than the pill intake, so chance of pregnancy does exist, wait for the due date and do a urine pregnancy test if she misses her date, protected sex delays period sometimes if there is anxiety, stress or the protection used failed due to some reason.

Having a kiss or sex with a cancer stage 2 patient. is it harmful? Please advice.

LCPS, BAM&S
General Physician, Pune
Kiss or sex will not transfer the cancer to you surely. But unsafe sex is bad, may lead to STD or pregnancy. But if you use condom then it's perfectly alright.
