Watery discharge during pregnancy can be due to many different reasons. You will have to know the underlying cause to determine if what's coming out of your vagina is normal or not. 1. Leukorrhea. Leucorrhea, the surge in the levels of estrogen, may increase the blood flow towards your vagina, which may cause vaginal discharge during the early stages of pregnancy. The discharge is usually thin and white in color. 2. Urine. Leaking urine is quite normal during pregnancy, especially when you sneeze, cough or have a good belly laugh. The smell and color will also confirm the discharge is urine. 3. Mucus Plug Your cervix will become thin and dilate during pregnancy, which may lead to the expulsion of the mucus plug. The plug fills the cervical canal and is made of mucus. It prevents any passage of bacteria to your baby. The plug comes off in the later stages of pregnancy, usually when you're ready to give birth. 4. Amniotic Fluid Your discharge may be the amniotic fluid that comprises of dead skin cells, cervical and vaginal secretions, and vaginal bacteria. If you notice sudden gush of fluids after the end of your third trimester, this could be the amniotic fluid discharge. 5. Preterm Labor If you're witnessing a brownish- or red-colored watery discharge before you complete 37 weeks, it could be a sign of preterm labor. Go see your doctor immediately for proper diagnosis. 6. Yeast Infection If you experience symptoms such as vaginal itchiness, swollen vulva, burning sensation and greening-yellow discharge, this may indicate a yeast infection. You have to consult your doctor because it is not easy to control a yeast infection during pregnancy and it could be quite uncomfortable, too. 7. Bacterial Vaginosis You may develop bacterial vaginosis due to an imbalance in the vaginal bacteria. The most common symptoms are yellowish or grayish-white watery discharge with a strong "fishy" smell. It is important to treat it on time or else it may lead to preterm delivery, miscarriage, or post pregnancy uterine infection. 8. Sexually Transmitted Disease If you're experiencing watery discharge that changes color from white to gray, yellow or green, this could be due to a vaginal infection or sexually transmitted disease. SO YOU HAVE CONSULT YOUR GP FOR YOUR PROBLEM.

For your height 5.2 feet & weight 65 kg, you need to reduce only 10 kgs which you can bring down by sensible dieting and exercise. No diet charts-just give up sweets, sugar, bad fats through street food but do take some good fats which give proteins too like a katori of assorted nuts + a spoon of pure ghee/butter. Take a high protein diet which is filling like a glass of toned milk, curd+ banana, boiled egg, dried chane & peanuts and apple/seasonal fruit as a snack. Cut down on other carbs also. Go for long walks as an exercise / keep a stable cycle at home and exercise while watching tv. Do some stretching exercises-watch cds available for yoga. Regarding pregnancy, your thyroid is a bit on low side but I will not suggest thyroxine hormone, as it may affect the conception. With diet and exercise your thyroid will improve. Get an ultrasound test on 10th day after cycle to look at developing follicles. Get back here with us report and period history.

That is the normal response of the abortion pills as your pregnancy is getting aborted. You should be happy that the pills are working you will be aborted as you r having both cramps and bleeding also.

U may be suffering from bleeding piles. Consult a surgeon. Avoid food stuff that cause constipation. Avoid spicy, fried, heavy food. Add ghee in your diet. Plenty of water, salad, fruits are good for u. You need medication too. For that you can consult personally.

Importance of Fibres

A day's diet plan should provide at least 25g to 40 g of fibre women need, slightly less fibre than men. For fibre to work well it needs water, so drink enough water. Fibre acts as a sponge and absorbs water and swells up in the gut and help to move food waste for elimination. Some types of fibre help maintain the good bacteria in the gut.

My sister is suffering from breast cancer please guide us now till day she had already 3 chemo therapy completed in a nursing home in kolkata now doctor says operation is required what can I do please give me advice.

MD - Radiation Oncology, MBBS, DNB (Radiotherapy)

Primary treatment for breast cancer is surgery. However if the tumor is inoperable initially, neoadjuvant chemotherapy is used to downsize the tumor for operable. After a few acycle of chemotherapy the tumor gets smaller in size and surgery can be performed immediately. So in your case if the tumor is operable, go for surgery.

Most likely your periods have come early related to stress. However since it is less than usual I would advice you to do a urine pregnancy test as well. If negative simply monitor your cycles for the next two months. It should come back to normal.

Hello, There is no real reason for weakness to set in but yes, rising levels of progesterones after ovulation can cause myalgia and decreased gastric motility a well.

Frequently asked questions when your partner has genital herpes.

When you find out a partner has genital herpes, you may be shocked at first and then have lots of questions. Here are some answers.

How likely is it that i've been infected with genital herpes, too?

That depends on whether you have always practiced safe sex, for one thing. Also, it may depend on how long you've been sexually intimate with each other.

If you've had sex only once or twice, and if you used a condom each time, the risk is lower than if you've had unprotected sex for a long time. But you could have been infected during any one encounter.

Don't think you're in the clear because you've never seen herpes sores on your partner's genitals or your own. The symptom of herpes are often subtle and easily mistaken for something else, like bug bites, pimples, razor burn, or hemorrhoids. What's more, the virus can be contagious even when there are no symptoms.

How can I protect myself from genital herpes if we keep having sex?

While no prevention method short of abstinence is 100% effective, using a latex condom offers some protection. Your partner should tell you when symptoms flare up, which is when the virus is most contagious. Avoid sex when your partner has symptoms.
