Withdrawal bleeding is always caused by hormonal pills and it should not be used as a child's play. Always consult a doctor before taking it otherwise you may face problems later.

My period is not in regular cycle since 4 months. And I have noticed many mole on my hands and face. And dry patches on my hands. Now I am worried about these sudden changes.

For irregular periods, thyroid levels, hb percentage should be checked once. Ultrasonography also is better to know more for diagnosis sake. Regarding your skin problem, if you have hypothyroidism, then this dry skin etc also can be part of that. But for all together you better to undergo homeopathic t/t from any nearby expert. But that also after getting these reports will be good.

Understanding the Menstrual Cycle

Understanding the Menstrual Cycle

The cyclical change in the uterus and ovaries of the female reproductive system is called the menstrual cycle. It includes changes in the physiology of the uterus along with the change in hormones as well. This cyclical change is what allows a woman to get pregnant. This cycle allows the formation of ovocytes and helps to prepare the uterus for implantation.

The commencement of period is called the menarche. It normally starts from the age of twelve to fifteen years. The time between the first day of the period and the first day of the next one is usually twenty one to forty five days in young adults and twenty one to thirty five in older women. The entire cycle is mainly governed by hormones like oestrogen, progesterone, Luteinizing Hormone etc.

Hormonal changes play a big role in the menstrual cycle. It consists of three phases

  • Menstrual stage (1-7 days)
  • Proliferative stage
  • Secretory stage

In the menstrual stage, the thick endometrial lining of the uterus will start to shed and will come out of the vagina in the form of blood and mucous. This may last from four to seven days. The levels of both progesterone and estrogen remain low in this phase.

In the second stage, i.e, the proliferative stage, the amount of oestrogen gradually rises and the menstrual flow reduces and eventually stops. The Follicle stimulating Hormone (FSH) is produced in the brain that stimulates your ovaries to produce mature eggs. The eggs are present in a follicular bag, which allows the secretion of oestrogen. Hence the amount of oestrogen is the least on the first day and increases gradually. At the same time, the uterine lining starts to thicken. This is the phase in which the egg is produced and in the presence of sperm, gets fertilised.

You may notice a thin slippery discharge around these days that makes it easier for the sperm to travel and survive in the uterus. You are most fertile in this stage, around on the 14th day of the cycle when ovulation occurs. The egg survives for around 24 hrs, whereas sperm can survive for about 2-3 days.

In the secretory phase, if the egg is not fertilised, the levels of oestrogen and progesterone fall. The thick lining that has been produced starts to shed and that commences the menstruation. If the egg is fertilised, then it may implant itself to the uterine wall and produce the pregnancy hormone called human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG). If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.

You are bit confused. One side you do not want to leave her. Other side worried of hiv. Get test done and everything will be clear. Also if she has problems in getting pregnant. Then talk to her and today there are many ways by which you can get pregnancy and that can be done. Since you like her so much then do not think much and after the test marry her.

IVF Success Rate - 5 Impacting Factors

Multispecilaity IVF Clinic

IVF Success Rate - 5 Impacting Factors

IVF or In Vitro Fertilization is a process wherein an egg is fertilized by a sperm in a laboratory dish to form the embryo (baby's first cell) which after growth in artificial medium in the lab is transferred into the uterus of women, In general, a blood sample is collected to determine whether you're pregnant or not about 10-14 days after the eggs are retrieved.

Coming to the success of the procedure, a number of factors are at play and these are:

  • The age at which you get pregnant - A factor that plays a role in influencing your chances of experiencing success in your IVF procedure is the age at which you opt for this procedure. The lower your age, the chances that you may get pregnant and deliver a healthy child using your own eggs witness an increase. On the other hand, if you're aged 41 and above, or your egg reserve is very low donor eggs are the most preferred option as they help to increase your prospects of meeting a success.
  • Lifestyle habits - Certain lifestyle factors can significantly affect your prospects of getting pregnant through this route. Smoking can reduce your prospect of success using this procedure by about 50%. It can cause you to have lesser number of eggs retrieved during the procedure while increasing instances of miscarriages. Likewise, obesity, alcohol use, consumption of excessive caffeine and drugs can adversely affect your chances of getting pregnant using IVF.
  • Cause of InfertilityIf your supply of eggs is normal, success rate using IVF is high. Women who suffer from the problem of endometriosis experience lesser chances of getting pregnant than women who have unexplained fertility.
  • Reproductive history - IVF success rate chances are higher if you've delivered a baby previously using IVF.
  • Embryo status - Embryos that are better developed with good grade stand a higher chance of experiencing success than less developed embryos. More importantly, not every embryo is able to survive the development process. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an IVF Specialist.

Hello. Your age does not shows menopausal stage. Hello Are you taking regular medicines or not. Continue your prescribed medicines if any. Do not eat sugar at all. Diabetes can disturb like this condition. The weakness is due to elevated sugar. Do not eat fast food. Keep eating times regular. Do not eat late night. Do not eat too much spicy. Do not eat rice items in night. Do regular exercises. Early morning 30 mins walk is most important. Revert back if more guidance needed.

Failure To Thrive!

MBBS, Diploma in Child Health
Pediatrician, Hyderabad
Failure To Thrive!

What is failure to thrive?

Children are diagnosed with failure to thrive when their weight or rate of weight gain is significantly below that of other children of similar age and sex. Infants or children that fail to thrive seem to be dramatically smaller or shorter than other children the same age. Teenagers may have short stature or appear to lack the usual changes that occur at puberty. However, there is a wide variation in what is considered normal growth and development.

Symptoms

In general, the rate of change in weight and height may be more important than the actual measurements.

Infants or children who fail to thrive have a height, weight and head circumference that do not match standard growth charts. The person's weight falls lower than the third percentile (as outlined in standard growth charts) or 20 percent below the ideal weight for their height. Growing may have slowed or stopped after a previously established growth curve.

The following are delayed or slow to develop:

  1. Physical skills, such as rolling over, sitting, standing and walking
  2. Mental and social skills
  3. Secondary sexual characteristics (delayed in adolescents)

Diagnosis

It is important to determine whether failure to thrive results from medical problems or factors in the environment, such as abuse or neglect.

There are multiple medical causes of failure to thrive. These include:

 

  • Chromosome abnormalities, such as Down syndrome and Turner syndrome
  • Defects in major organ systems
  • Problems with the endocrine system, such as thyroid hormone deficiency, growth hormone deficiency or other hormone deficiencies
  • Damage to the brain or central nervous system, which may cause feeding difficulties in an infant
  • Heart or lung problems, which can affect how oxygen and nutrients move through the body
  • Anemia or other blood disorders
  • Gastrointestinal problems that result in malabsorption or a lack of digestive enzymes
  • Long-term gastroenteritis and gastroesophageal reflux (usually temporary)

Cerebral palsy

Long-term (chronic) infections

Metabolic disorders

Complications of pregnancy and low birth weight

Other factors that may lead to failure to thrive:

  • Emotional deprivation as a result of parental withdrawal, rejection or hostility
  • Economic problems that affect nutrition, living conditions and parental attitudes
  • Exposure to infections, parasites or toxins
  • Poor eating habits, such as eating in front of the television and not having formal meal times
  • Many times the cause cannot be determined.

Treatment

The treatment depends on the cause of the delayed growth and development. Delayed growth due to nutritional factors can be resolved by educating the parents to provide a well-balanced diet.

If psychosocial factors are involved, treatment should include improving the family dynamics and living conditions. Parental attitudes and behavior may contribute to a child's problems and need to be examined. In many cases, a child may need to be hospitalized initially to focus on implementation of a comprehensive medical, behavioral and psychosocial treatment plan.

Do not give your child dietary supplements without consulting your physician first.

Is Masturbation Normal or Harmful?

Sab bhai bandhuon ko namashkar, mai Dr. J Lal, Atta market, New Vihar-27 se bol raha hun. Aao ko sexual vishai mein, masturbation jo log karte hai uske labh haani k baare mein bataunga.

Zyada masturbation kar lene se aadmi k andar, purush k andar disability paida ho jaati hai, jisme sperm count kam ho jaate hai, hormone levels down ho jaate hai aur iss prakar infertility paida ho jaata hai. Iss tarah se aap log itni badi bimari k shikar ho jaate hai. Aap se yehi anurodh hai k aap kisi prakar ka bhi masturbation ya sex zyada na kare. Limited daire mein reh kar agar aap sex karte hai to aap ko har prakar ka swarth laabh rahega.

Shukranuo k kami k karan sharir ka andar nirjiwta aa jana, sharir puri tarah se kaam na karna. Isi prakar testosterone ka level bhi down ho jaane se susti aate rehna aur sahi tarah se aap k body ka puri tarah se wikaas na hona bhi paaya jata hai. Isme aap ka sexual disability paida ho jaati hai aur isme muscles nhi kamzor ho jaate hai, bones ki density bhi kam ho jaati hai, hair growth bhi kam ho jaati hai aur isme RBC ka bhi level down ho jaata hai.

Iss prakar mai aap ko samjhana chahuga k aap kisi bhi prakar ki masturbation se dur hi rahein, ise na karein ya kam se kam kare to thik hai. Iss prakar agar aap kisi prakar k samasya se jujh rahe hai to aap kripya kar k librate k madhyam se ya direct mere clinic pe aa kar k mujhse sampark kar sakte hai. Iss ka mai aap ko uchit ilaaz dunga.
