Yes you can. Use Novelon or Femilon- once daily from first day of your periods for 21 days and then cyclically after a gap of 8 days. Continue for 3-4 months and see if it helps. Read the instruction leaflet with regards to common side effects and contraindications.

Pregnancy though can occur only on one day- Ovulation day of cycle. Body does not behave like mathematics. That day may be slightly shift on one or other side by a day or two in women having regular periods (Those having irregular periods shift a lot). Pregnancy can occur by intercourse 2 days prior to ovulation day or even 24 hrs later than ovulation so certain period is decided and not one day. However without making it more scientific or mathematics ok to have on alternate days around that period for having pregnancy.

What Gives You Painful Menstrual Cramps?

What Gives You Painful Menstrual Cramps?

Simple Ways to Treat Dysmenorrhea

Dysmenorrhea is a menstrual disorder in which women suffer painful menstrual cramps along with other symptoms during their periods. It affects about 20 percent of the women of menstrual age. This happens at the start of the periods and may last for three days till the end of the period.

Few Common Symptoms are:

- Abdominal pain with menstrual cramps
- Joint pain, especially in the lower back hips and sometimes in the inner thighs
- May also result in vomiting sometimes
- In certain cases, may also cause an upset stomach

The causes behind dysmenorrhea

The primary cause behind this is usually the contracting of the uterus. The uterus does normally contract a little during menstruation but it may contract a bit too much, affecting the blood vessels and nerves within the abdominal region causing this condition. Some basic steps to reduce pain from cramps.

Some of the steps to be followed to allay the symptoms are:

- Taking ample rest during the days of bleeding
- Staying away from alcohol or any other food or drink that may dehydrate the body
- Avoiding smoking
- Avoid coffee or any food products high in caffeine
- Avoiding foods high in salt
- Massaging the lower back gently
- Using a hot water bag on the abdomen to relieve some of the pain

The steps mentioned above are meant primarily as preventive and pain reducing measures, but for more severe symptoms medications such as acetaminophen, ibuprofen or others may be necessary.

However, the best advice would be to consult a doctor in case of prolonged pain during the days of bleeding rather than self-medicating or only relying on home remedies.

'Consult'.

Sex during fertile period, that is day 7-19 of the cycle is best for conceiving. No lubricant should be used, the woman should rest for 5-10 minutes after sex before cleaning/ urination.

At 19 , your weight is just okay but you are a growing up teenager with more demand on resources of good diet like simple proteins like toned milk & curds & a katori of assorted nuts to get good fats & good proteins. Fortoning up breasts , swimming is the best exercise but if facility is not available , do rowing , streching of arms , weights & simple walks for exercise & relaxation of entire body. you can do massage with lotion to tone up the muscles,wear a sport bra to feel less self conscious.

You need to get a few blood tests and scan done to evaluate the cause of your sub fertility. Also your husband's semen needs to be analysed.

Hello, It's very normal to get periods for 4-5 days. For stomachache, here are some tips to help you get rid of problems: It is good to avoid fried, sour and protein rich foods in the last week of the menstrual cycle. Eat fish as it contains omega-3 fatty acids, which helps in easing contractions during menstruation Avoid eating dairy products, meat and poultry Maintain healthy and nutritious diet and perform yoga to help you stay away from problems If you are suffering from anemia, you should take food rich in iron Avoid vegetables like potato, eggplant, yellow pumpkin and try to concentrate on consuming drumsticks, papaya, white pumpkin, snake guard, cucumber and bitter guard When you experience pain, you can help reduce the pain by giving the area hot treatment. Drinking plenty of water and herbal tea also helps reduce pain and problems faced during menstrual periods. You can also perform yoga and some cardiovascular exercises that will help you get rid of these cramps. Last but not the least; take as much rest as possible. This will help you keep your menstruation under control. Medication: Take Schwabe’s Mag. Phos. 6x/ 5 tablets to be dissolved in ½ cup of water after every 2 hrly. till the pain lasts.

At 20, you have taken a lot too many antibiotics for uti. 65 days is a long time to suffer from uti. I hope a culture test & ultrasound has been done to rule out kidney stones. If not get it done now. May be culture test shows no bacterial infection and you are taking heavy antibiotics for no reason. Take cystone (himalaya) 2 tabs every day & drink lots of water. Get back here with reports of tests advised.

No, its not tb treatment that might be causing trouble in conceiving, but there are chances when you had tb (i guess it was lungs tb as you have not mentioned that), it might have also involved the genital system causing problems now. Take consultation from an obstretician/gynaecologist dealing with infertility cases for proper evaluation.

Washing your undergarments at 2 days interval or more does not cause breast cancer. However, it may be inadvisable to do so for hygienic reasons. There are no sure ways to prevent breast cancer, but diagnosing it in early stage helps in treating the disease almost completely. The way to detect it early is through self breast examination, yearly check ups and mammogram (a special x ray of breasts) when you turn 40years of age. For those who have a positive family history of the disease, some special genetic tests may be prescribed.

Preventing Uterine Cancer

Gynaecologist, Gurgaon
Preventing Uterine Cancer

Uterine cancer is also known as endometrial cancer and it mostly affects the middle aged women. The uterus of a woman is a muscular organ. The cancer can affect any part of the uterus and is more common in women having obesity, diabetes and hypertension. In most cases, the cancer starts in the endometrium, hence called endometrial cancer. Uterine cancer can be cured using any of the following methods:

  1. Surgical removal of the uterus along with ovaries, lymph nodes and fallopian tubes
  2. Radiation therapy
  3. Chemotherapy

Although uterine cancer is curable, it's always a better option to prevent it. You cannot control all the causes for uterine cancer like those related to heredity. But other than that, here are a few ways in which you can prevent suffering from uterine cancer:

  1. Control body weight: Keep your body weight in control. Obesity can pose a huge risk of getting affected with uterine cancer. The fat in the body produces estrogen, which promotes the growth of uterine lining that is the Endometrium and may lead to Endometrial cancer.
  2. Breast feed: If you are lactating, then the risk of the cancer decreases, as breast feeding decreases ovulation as well as estrogen activities.
  3. Treat abnormal bleeding: If you are suffering from any type of abnormal bleeding, be that heavy periods, bleeding even after you reached menopause or if you start bleeding between two period cycles, consult your doctor immediately. Abnormal bleeding is the symptom of endometrial hyperplasia, which might eventually turn cancerous.
  4. Exercise: As already said earlier, keep your weight under control to avoid uterine cancer. Exercise to avoid increase in weight leading to obesity. It also reduces the estrogen level in your body.
  5. Healthy food: Healthy food is the key to avoid any disease, be that a common cold or uterine cancer. Eat a healthy and balanced diet everyday to be fit and bouncing. 
  6. Birth control pills: It is believed that the intake of birth control pills helps to keep uterine cancer at bay.

So eat healthy, exercise and adopt healthy habits. Then nothing can stop you from enjoying life to the fullest.
