Alp not only always determine liver functioning but is also evident of bone growth and that is why this enzyme is elevated in both pregnant women (due to bone growth of baby) and children. -nothing to worry, just concenterate on your pregnancy-best of luck.

As you had menses which was heavy on first day you r not pregnant for sure. Even if menses are coming less how does it matter as your primary concern of not getting pregnant is not there any more.

Hi Only option for you is ivf and that too you should do as early as possible because in female's body egg reserve and quality reduces with increasing age. And then chances of success in ivf also reduce.

It does not seems healthy pregnancy. Like fetus with no cardiac activity. Go for spontaneous abortion, so your pain and bleeding started. You need proper investigation and control of thyroid before next conception.

Hi. I took I pill (morning after pill) around 20th of august. After 2-3 days I started spotting slightly. It continued till the 4th of september. When I had sex with my partner. I started bleeding post sex slightly. That started the on and off spotting again. On the 7th again, I bleed a little post sex. There was a weird smell to the discharge on the morning of 8th/9th september. Though spotting had stopped somewhat. I was worried it might be chlamydia so I got a vaginal swab test for culture and sensitivity done. I also took an urine pregnancy test with an otc pregnancy kit. I generally have my periods in the first-second week of a month. I am not sure whether I had a really light period due to the morning after pill (spotting) or if it is something else. Can you advice?

Studies have also shown that long term hydroquinone use can cause exogenous ochronosis, which is when your skin turns a bluish and black color. Hydroquinone not only inhibits melanin production to help lighten skin, but long term use can actually damage your pigment cells

Hi lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. Sometimes delayed period also have symptoms similar to early pregnancy. If your test is negative its unlikely that you could be pregnant. If you still have doubts I suggest you repeat the test with an early morning sample of urine. If still negative then wait for another 3-4 days for your period. If they do not start then we can start you on medicines to resume them hope this information has been helpful. All the best.

Hello- uterus is one organ that differentiate females from males. Other then the pregnancy the uterus has a function to purify the toxin of the body by flushing out through the blood every month. Due to improper diet or schedule prior to menses has obstructed your menstrual blood flow and hence you faced less bleed in this cycle. This obstructed stored blood (in uterus) is now causing heaviness and discomfort below the umblicus where uterus is situated. Try this ayurvedic treatment- a) dashmoolarishtha 2 tsp twice with water. B) gokshuradi guggulu 1 tab thrice. C) avipattikar churna 1/2 tsp twice before meals.

Some times with some individuals such things do happen when things don't go as per their wish or their plans and this builds up unnecessary stress. These negative feelings sometimes may appear insignificant to a layman but they are significant enough to increase stress and release of stress hormones in the body. In your case similar thing is happening. You are not able to deal with those negative feelings. Many people must have suggested you to make corrections in your thought process, or do YOGA or do meditation moreover you are yourself more or less aware of your situation but still you are not able to come out of it. In such cases homeopathy can surely help you provided you provide us all your health and stress related details which will help us find out a right homeopathic medicine for you that will help balance your stress hormones and you will be able to deal with it more positively. You should try homeopathy treatment for couple of months.

If you r suspecting pregnancy then you can do home urine pregnancy test. Brown discharge can be considered as menses if pregnancy test is negative. Hormonal changes can bring this kind of menses.

Prevention of HIV/AIDS

MD - General Medicine
Sexologist, Delhi
Prevention of HIV/AIDS

In order to prevent HIV infection and AIDS immunocompromised, you need to have a good explanation and prophylactic referral information. Therefore, it is very important advice and explanation about AIDS. Although AIDS has been known for almost 30 years, the population is still large gaps on the subject, especially in relation to knowledge and the risks of HIV transmission. Relationships with adults infected with HIV is transmitted through blood, semen, and vaginal secretions . However, infection with the spread of airborne pathogens is not possible, as in the case of cold diseases.Therefore, the risk of infection by treatment with AIDS or infected with HIV is very low: Social contact in both work and personal lives, as handshakes, hugs and the like, is completely harmless. The same goes to say for the common use of cutlery, crockery, glasses, toilets or towels, also harmless. There is no evidence of increased risk of infection for people who share the same home or the patient environment. However, some precautions should always be taken into account, for example, do not share the toothbrush or razor, because in the case of injury to perform these functions there may be a small risk of infection. Intimate relationships hide itself a risk of infection, regardless of whether they are heterosexual or homosexual. The fundamental basis for reliable protection against HIV infection and AIDS remains the consistent use of condoms, that is, the safer sex . Safe sex: condoms protectThe basic rules for having a sex safe are blood, semen or vaginal secretions must not reach wounds or open areas of skin or mucosa of sexual partner. Therefore, it is important to use condoms , both anal and vaginal . No condoms, the risk of infection is high, since during intercourse always small lesions can occur. In the case of oral sex is important to prevent both sperm and vaginal secretions come in contact with the oral mucosa, lips or tongue of the couple. If these precautions are taken into account, they can keep sex without any problems. Add that kissing is also harmless. The condom is a widely used method of contraception among young people today. In a 2010 survey singles between 16 and 44 years, only one in ten said physical strength to use condoms; in 1989, the ratio was one in five respondents. This greater acceptance brings added one more advantage is that more and more people are protected and protect others from infection with HIV and other STDs. In 2009, seven out of ten respondents from a group between 16 and 20 years said carrying condoms. Among sexually active people, this increases even eight out of ten. More important than having the intention of having a practice safe sex is really using condoms. Between 2004 and 2009 amounted proportion (61 to 70%) of sexually active people (between 16 and 20 years) who always or very often used condoms. But also in the new relations plays an important role on safe sex : in 2010, 85% of men and 89% of women used condoms at the beginning of a new relationship.

It is absolutely safe to have sex during menses. She will never become pregnant if you have sex during menses. If it is delayed by 7 days, do urine pregnancy test to be doubly sure.

Trigger Thumb

MBBS, MS - Orthopaedics
Orthopedist, Delhi
Trigger Thumb
(syn. Stenozing tenosynovitis of flelexor pollicis longus tendon)
Trigger thumb is a painful clinical condition in which the terminal phalanx if the thumb gets locked in a state of flexion. Sometimes it is bilateral i. E. Involving both hands. Big toes of the feet are usually not involved. The condition at some stage may become painless. It is more common in diabetics.
Trigger thumb is caused as a result of inflammation of the tunnel of the thumb in which the (flelexor pollicis longus) tendon moves. As a result the tunnel gets narrowed, usually at the metacarpo phalangeal joint and arrests the gliding movement of the tendon. Sometimes there is a nodule formation in the tendon at the same place producing obstruction to the tendon movement.
Treatment
Non steroid anti inflammatory drugs help in reducing pain and swelling. Physiotherapy helps in regaining movements of the joint. Sometimes in local infiltration with steroids gives relief. However long term effects of steroids are not desirable.
Surgical treatment if the medical treatment does not succeed, then surgical release of the tendon should be undertaken. It a one stitch surgery which can be done under local anesthesia with constantly good results.
Congenital trigger thumb some children are born with it. The congenital variety is usually bilateral. In these cases the treatment is surgical only. It should be done early otherwise the terminal phalanx of the child will not grow and remain small in size.
