Is it ok to take flax seeds powder after lunch n dinner for height gain?
I hope it will not make me fat?
Flax seeds are known to bring down cholesterol , I have no idea whether they lead to increase in height . Take high protein diet , drink lots of toned milk and milk products like curds and lassi, do stretching exercises. Girls do gain height after 19 years , do not follow the data that shows girls stop growing tall after they get their periods.

How To Treat Torn Meniscus?

MBBS, DNB - Orthopedics, Fellowship in Upperlimb and Limb Reconstruction (Australia)

How To Treat Torn Meniscus?

Meniscus refers to the soft ligament in your knee joint, which cushions your bones and protects it from wear and tear. It is vital for the fulfilment of regular activities and the health of your bones. Thus, a damage to the meniscus can be extremely painful. menisci is exposed to injuries and shocks in case of rigorous activities and this is a fairly common injury faced by athletes and sports persons. It can cause a substantial amount of pain and generally impairs movement to a large extent. It potentially gets worse as the inflammation sets in and the swelling grows. The risk of a menisci tear increases with age. The treatment for a torn menisci depends upon the degree of tear. While minor tears repair on their own, for graver injuries, the following therapies may prove effective.

Symptoms of a torn meniscus

  1. You might be able to experience a popping sensation in your knee joint
  2. Stiffness and swelling
  3. You will experience pain, especially while you are trying to twist your knee
  4. You might not be able to straighten your knee completely
  5. Locking 

The treatment for a torn meniscus depends upon the degree of tear. While minor tears repair on their own, for graver injuries, the following therapies may prove effective:
1. Light exercises: For slightly serious meniscus tears, there are certain knee exercises which are recommended to abort any further damage as well as to repair the wound. Limiting the activities which might exert pressure on the knees, getting adequate rest, using ice packs and wearing neoprene sleeves always aid in recovery.
2. Anti-inflammatory medications: Often, meniscus tears are cured with the help of anti-inflammatory drugs like Ibuprofen. They not only reduce pain but also enable the mending of the injured tissue. However, one needs to be aware of a few side effects which often become natural repercussions of such drugs. Possibility of ulcers and bleeding get increased by leaps and bounds on the intake of such drugs.
3. Surgery: For all other forms of meniscus tears, if healing is not happening through non-surgical methods, the only option available is that of surgery. Such a situation arises when the pain becomes unbearable and the meniscus tear does not respond favorably to superficial treatments. These surgeries are less complicated than replacement surgeries. They usually do not involve any life threatening hazard and cautious and efficiently conducted surgeries release all pains and handicaps. The surgery is done through a small incision, called as arthroscopic surgery or key hole surgery, where in the torn meniscus is either repaired or trimmed. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Orthopaedist.

Hello, there is no such evidence that there would be abortion. Please don't worry, report is just fine. You should be on progesterone support till 14 weeks of gestation to allow adequate placentation and take adequate rest with complete avoidance of intercourse till 16 weeks of gestation. The pregnancy shall grow well. Your family doctor is wrong in his statement.

It is normal so need not to worry. Just wait for your periods to delay. If not successful this time, try normally for 3-4 months, still if not able to conceive then consult gyne. And get the tests required done.

Yes you should give her a pill as this technique of discharging outside while having unprotected sex is called COITUS INTERRUPTUS and is highly dangerous.For adopting this technique while having sex you should know regarding the safe and unsafe period of your Gf menstrual cycle and if Sexual contact is made in unsafe period ,even though you have ejaculated outside,you should immediately give her pill,afterall accidents dont happen with prior intimation.

Swine Flu - How It Spreads?

DNB (Respiratory disease), Fellowship Bronchoscopy, MBBS
Pulmonologist, Ahmedabad
Swine Flu - How It Spreads?

Swine flu is the commonly used word for H1N1 influenza virus infection.  It is a relatively newer strain of the influenza virus, and is so called because it was originally discovered in people who were in direct contact with pigs. This is not necessarily the case now.  Also, one should note that despite the name, it does not spread by eating pork or bacon or ham.

It is very contagious and spreads from person to person very rapidly.  Swine flu was big news in 2009 when it was declared a pandemic an is in news again as a number of people have succumb to death in 2017 because of it. 

Mechanism of spread:  When a person with flu sneezes or coughs, the virus is released into the air, and when another person breathes the virus, they get the disease.  It could also be through surfaces like doors or restroom handles which were handled by the infected person. The symptoms take about 7 days to develop, and could be quicker and severe in people with weak immune system

Symptoms: Swine flu resembles the regular flu with generic symptoms including:

  1. Fever and chills
  2. Cough and cold
  3. Sore throat
  4. Runny nose
  5. Generalized fatigue
  6. Body aches
  7. Vomiting

As it progresses, it can lead to more severe conditions like pneumonia, lung infection, or worsening of asthma.

Testing: A swab test can be done but is not required in all people, except the below

  1. Extremely young or old people
  2. People with known weakened immunity
  3. People with debilitating medical conditions (chronic lung or liver disease, severe diabetes, nervous disorders, etc.)
  4. People in nursing or assisted living

Treatment:

  • When swine flu is detected, one of the following medications is usually given – osteltavimir, peramivir, or zanamivir.  The results are best when given in the first 48 hours.
  • Antibiotics are not effective as it is a viral disease.
  • Cold and fever medications are given for symptomatic relief
  • Aspirin should be avoided

Prevention: When there is a high incidence of swine flu in your surroundings, do the following:

  1. If you are affected, stay indoors to avoid spreading the disease 
  2. Wash your hands regularly with soap and water.
  3. Contain coughs and sneezes with a kerchief or a tissue so that virus spread is limited
  4. Avoid touching the eyes, nose, and mouth with likely infected hands
  5. Keep elderly, pregnant, asthmatics, and young people away from the infected person. They have lower immunity and can contract the infection much faster
  6. If you are infected, limit your movement in the household and try to stay put in one place
  7. Caretaking preferably should be done by one person to limit exposure among all the members in the family. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Pulmonologist.

If you had taken ipill within 72 hours, then there is less possiblity to get pregnant, but ippil is not 100 percent protective. If in case you missed your regular periods you can do fresh urine pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy.

Are You Ready for IVF?

MBBS, FIAGES-MInimal Access Surgery
IVF Specialist, Kota
Are You Ready for IVF?

One of the major milestones in a woman’s life is the entry into motherhood. For most women, when this does not happen in the natural logical sequence of things, there is anxiety and lot of pressure from family and friends.

However, with advancements now, there are options like intrauterine insemination and in vitro fertilisation (IUI and IVF) available, which can help increase the chances of conception and pregnancy. IVF is where the egg is retrieved from the woman’s womb, fertilised externally and then transplanted back into the uterus where it grows to full term. However, there are always unanswered questions like how long to wait before going for IVF, is it the right procedure for me, etc.

Read on to know to find answers to some of these.

  1. Maternal age: As a woman reaches 35 and a man reaches 40, the fertility rates drop significantly. The chances that a woman at 35 will conceive is about 20%, which goes down to 5% if the woman is 40. However, this rate can be significantly increased by using IVF. The quality of the egg would gradually deteriorate, and so if a woman is nearing 40, it is better to consider IVF as the ovarian reserve would be optimal with IVF.
  2. Failed intrauterine insemination: In couples who have problems with the sperm reaching the uterus, intrauterine insemination (IUI) is first attempted. However, if 3 or more attempts of fail, it is time to consider IVF.
  3. Duration of inability to conceive: While some couples conceive quite promptly in a month or two, most take about 6 to 8 months of unprotected sex to conceive. Therefore, IVF can be an option if you are failing to conceive even after a year. Less than a year, don’t fret. Take it easy and it might just do the trick.
  4. Medical health: Both the partner’s medical health should be taken into account. Lifestyle changes like smoking, alcohol abuse, drug abuse should be considered, which can account for poor sexual performance and therefore lead to an inability to conceive. Health conditions like diabetes and heart disease can also lead to infertility. Hypothyroidism in women is another thing that must be ruled out, as it often leads to an inability to conceive.
  5. Sexual problems with the partner: One of the first things to do before going for IVF is to check that the male does not have any issues. Be it erection issues or ejaculation issues or sperm issues, they need to be ruled out. Sperm quality, quantity, and motility have to be analysed, and if they are optimal, IVF can be considered. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an IVF Specialist.
