What is the best way to avoid pregnancy if we r having sex in a regular or weekly basis? P always use condoms. But just in case.

MBBS, DGO, MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MRCOG
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Best contraception remains the contraceptive pill for people having regular sex. Condoms are fine till there is a problem of slippage or leakage or braek in which case, you may need additional protection.

She is 20 years old and she is confused whether she is pregnant or not. She needed to know the symptoms during the first 10 days of pregnancy. And if she is pregnant then for the abortion case what she should do that her parents don't know about and silently the case closes. I know this is not good but she need the solution for the same.

General Physician, Cuttack
Do a pregnancy test 10 days after missed period to confirm pregnancy. If pregnancy is confirmed then don MTP/take abortion kit after consulting Gynecologist.

I am unmarried female age 40 yrs. I did not have periods since 2 months. Pls suggest which medicine should I take for getting immediate periods.

Diploma in Hospital Administration, MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
If you are not in relationship with any men then it can be delayed period due to imbalance of female hormones. Wait for 1-2 weeks your periods may start automatically. In case you don't get menses then consult Gynaecologist for specific medicines to start menses. But If you are in relationship, then get your pregnancy test to confirm or exclude the possibility of pregnancy.

My wife wants to plan for a child. But she is scared all the time that the pregnancy wont go well as a lot of her friends are having difficulty conceiving. What can I do to help her?

She needs assurance first. Then she should be explained that pregnancy usually occurs by chance- that means, if both the husbands and wife are having full normal health, the chance of having pregnancy in one menstrual cycle is only 25%. SO, there may be difficulty in conception due to chance factor or sometimes there may be actual problem in husband or wife. If she does not do well after your assurance, just take her to your doctor for counseling and do some basic tests done. Worry can affect the conception ability in adverse manner. So, don't worry.

Some amount of itch is normal when the tummy expands, also on other parts during pregnancy, but if you can't control it, should refer your doctor in person.

आंवला के फायदे, गुण, लाभ, नुकसान - Amla ke Fayde, Gun, Labh, Nuksan in Hindi

आंवला के फायदे, गुण, लाभ, नुकसान - Amla ke Fayde, Gun, Labh, Nuksan in Hindi

आंवला या अमालाकी को सबसे अधिक आयुर्वेदिक घटक के रूप में कहा जा सकता है। यह भोजन और दवा दोनों है। यह छोटा सा फल असंख्य स्वास्थ्य लाभों से भरा है। अमला शब्द खट्टा का उल्लेख करता है, जो कि इसका मुख्य स्वाद है। इसका वनस्पति नाम एम्बलोका ऑफिजिनालिस या फ़िलेंथस इम्ब्लिका है।
यह जड़ी बूटी एक बहुत ही शक्तिशाली एंटीऑक्सीडेंट है, जो कि मुक्त कणों से होने वाली सेल ऑक्सीकरण को रोकती है। विरोधी उम्र बढ़ने और कैंसर, मधुमेह और हृदय रोग जैसे रोगों को रोकने के लिए एंटीऑक्सिडेंट महत्वपूर्ण हैं। 

आंवले के लाभ:
यह कई बीमारियों के लिए उपचार प्रदान करता है और इसलिए इसका व्यापक रूप से आयुर्वेदिक उपचार में उपयोग किया जाता है। आंवला विटामिन सी में बहुत समृद्ध है, और कई खनिज और कैल्शियम, फास्फोरस, आयरन, कैरोटीन और विटामिन बी कॉम्प्लेक्स जैसे विटामिन शामिल हैं।
आमला के स्वास्थ्य लाभ में निम्न शामिल हैं:
1. आँखों के लिए:
शहद के साथ आंवले का रस पीने से दृष्टि में सुधार होता है। अध्ययनों से यह भी पता चला है कि यह अंतर-ओक्यूलर तनाव को कम कर, निकटता और मोतियाबिंद में सुधार करता है। विटामिन ए और कैरोटीन मेक्यूलर डिएनेजरेशन, रात अंधापन को कम करता है और आपकी दृष्टि को मजबूत कर सकता है। 
2. मधुमेह के लिए:
आंवला, कोशिकाओं के पृथक समूह को उत्तेजित करता है जो हार्मोन इंसुलिन को छिपाने के साथ-साथ मधुमेह रोगियों में रक्त शर्करा को कम करते हैं और शरीर को संतुलित और स्वस्थ रखते हैं। इसमें मौजूद क्रोमियम शरीर के एलडीएल कोलेस्ट्रॉल सामग्री को कम करके, हृदय स्वास्थ्य के लिए उपयोग किया जाता है, जो बीटा-अवरोधक के प्रभाव को बढ़ाता है।
3. पाचन के लिए:
आंवला में बहुत अधिक मात्रा में फाइबर है जो आंतों के माध्यम से भोजन को ले जाने में मदद करता है और आपके मल त्याग को नियमित रखता है। फाइबर ढीली मल को भी बढ़ा सकता है और दस्त को कम कर सकता है। 
4. दिल के लिए:
यह हृदय की मांसपेशियों को भी मजबूत बनाता है। अतिरिक्त कोलेस्ट्रॉल बिल्डअप को कम करने से, आंवले में मौजूद क्रोमियम आथरोसक्लेरोसिस की संभावना को कम कर सकता है, तथा जहाजों और धमनियों में पट्टिका के निर्माण को कम कर सकता है। लोहे की सामग्री नए लाल रक्त कोशिकाओं के निर्माण को बढ़ावा देती है, रक्त वाहिकाओं और धमनियों को साफ करते हुए नए रक्त कोशिकाओं के विकास और पुनर्जन्म को अधिकतम करने के लिए परिसंचरण और अंगों और कोशिकाओं के ऑक्सीजन को बढ़ाता है।
5. बालों के लिए:
आंवला कई बाल के टॉनिकों में प्रयोग किया जाता है क्योंकि यह बाल विकास और बाल रंजकता को बढ़ाता है। ताजा आंवला खाने या बालों की जड़ों पर इसका पेस्ट लगाने से बाल विकास और रंग में सुधार होता है।
6. मेटाबोलिक गतिविधि:
आंवले में प्रोटीन भी होते हैं। सेलुलर विकास, मांसपेशियों के विकास, अंग स्वास्थ्य, और अन्य चयापचय गतिविधियों की एक विस्तृत श्रृंखला के लिए प्रोटीन आवश्यक है।
7. मूत्रवर्धक गतिविधि:
आंवला थोड़ा मूत्रवर्धक भी है, जो आवृत्ति और पेशाब की मात्रा बढ़ाता है। मूत्रवर्धक पदार्थ हमारे गुर्दे को स्वस्थ रखने, मूत्र संक्रमण और गर्भाशय में संक्रमण को रोकने के लिए आवश्यक होता है।
8. मासिक धर्म में ऐंठन के लिए:
आंवले में मौजूद कुछ खनिज और विटामिन सामूहिक रूप से मासिक धर्म के ऐंठन के उपचार में बहुत उपयोगी होते हैं।
9. संक्रमण के लिए:
इसके जीवाणुरोधी और कसैले गुणों के कारण, आंवले शरीर के संक्रमण के खिलाफ रक्षा करते हैं और शरीर की प्रतिरक्षा प्रतिक्रिया में सुधार करते हैं। आंवले में मौजूद विटामिन सी शरीर में सफेद रक्त कोशिका की गिनती में वृद्धि करते हैं।
10. एंटी-एजिंग:
आंवला अपने एंटीऑक्सिडेंट गुणों के माध्यम से शरीर में मुक्त कणों की मात्रा को कम करके स्वास्थ्य से संबंधित हाइपरलिपिडाइमिया को रोकता है। मुक्त कण, उम्र बढ़ने के लक्षणों जैसे झुर्रियाँ और उम्र के धब्बे के साथ जुड़े हुए हैं।

आंवले के दुष्प्रभाव
सभी पहलुओं में एक सुपर भोजन, आंवला साइड इफेक्ट्स से मुक्त नहीं है। हालांकि अध्ययनों में किसी प्रकार के जहरीले या कठोर, नकारात्मक प्रभावों की रिपोर्ट नहीं होती है, लेकिन आंवले के उपयोग से संबंधित कुछ हल्के, प्रतिकूल प्रतिक्रियाएं हैं। 
1. हाइपरएसिडि टी ट्रिगर कर सकता है:
यदि आपका हाइपरएसिडि टी या विटामिन सी खाद्य पदार्थों की संवेदनशीलता का कोई भी इतिहास है, तो आपको इस फल को खाने से बचना चाहिए।
2. अगर आप उच्च मात्रा में आंवले का उपभोग करते हैं, तो यह मल को कठोर कर सकता है।
3. हाइपोग्लिसेमिक लोगों को आंवले के उपयोग से बचने की सलाह दी जाती है क्योंकि इससे उनकी स्वास्थ्य स्थिति खराब हो सकती है।
4. जिन लोगों को आंवले से एलर्जी हो, उन्हे कुछ स्वास्थ्य संबंधी मुद्दों जैसे दस्त, पेट में दर्द, पेट में ऐंठन, मतली, उल्टी, लाली और अपने मुँह के आसपास सूजन, चेहरे पर लालच, त्वचा और चेहरे पर पित्ती, श्वास बाधित, सिरदर्द, चक्कर आना, और हल्केपन का अनुभव हो सकता है।

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology

All this problems occur because of hormonal changes in the body. You should get ultrasound done and tsh test to find out why exactly this is happening. You may be suffering from pcod, which can be treated if found on time. Do not worry about the current menses if you did not had sex in the last month.

I am having pcos and size of right ovary is 45x23 mm (32 cc) and left ovary is 45x25 cc mm (20 cc). I had an ectopic pregnancy in last year november and treated with methotrexate. Diagnosed with tuberculosis (test tb gold positive) since last year December I am on tb medication (ATT). I am having lower abdomen pricking pain on right side which goes off in a few seconds and having lower abdomen pain while bowel movement. Done whole abdomen and tvs ultrasound. Everything is normal except minimal free fluid in POD. I need to urinate frequently (sometimes 3 times in half an hr) and bladder never seem to be empty. What should I do?

Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Dear lybrate-user, you should complete your akt course for tb. A urine culture report can rule out any possibility of urine infection for frequent urination and if possible consult urologist if frequency is too bad. After akt if you do not conceive in 6-8 months a laparoscopy can be done to assess the tubal status and treatment for fertility will be as per the status of fallopian tubes.

Depression During Pregnancy - How Can You Manage it?

Depression During Pregnancy - How Can You Manage it?

Pregnancy is that wonderful and beautiful phase that most women rejoice about. However, many may find it hard to believe that pregnancy can bring with it a condition known as ‘antenatal depression’. This is a common condition in expecting mothers and should not be ignored.

Depression during pregnancy like regular depression is a clinical condition and requires further investigation and management. Pregnancy is related to the female hormones and therefore, mood swings are common (as during PMS and menopause). However, depressed pregnant women would typically have the following associated symptoms too.

  1. Altered eating habits

  2. Altered sleeping patterns (too much or too less)

  3. Loss of attention/ability to focus

  4. Losing interest in activities which usually interest the person

  5. Feeling very anxious

  6. Constant feeling of sadness

  7. Uncertainty about the future

  8. Feeling of worthlessness

  9. Suicidal tendencies

It has been noted about 25% of women can get depressed during pregnancy for varying periods of time. Some potential reasons for this are as below.

  1. Strained relationships: One of the most important factors for a healthy pregnancy is a happy relationship, not just with the partner, but with immediate and close family members with whom there is a high level of regular interaction.

  2. Work stress: For working women, a stressful office environment could take a toll on their moods.

  3. Previous miscarriages: This can cause anxiety and depression about possible repeat incident.

  4. Potential complications: If the periodic examinations showed up possibility for complications in pregnancy, the chance of depression in the mother increase.

How it affects pregnancy?

A depressed mother would not be able to care for herself and  therefore, the baby may not get adequate nutrition for its development. Additionally, the potential for nicotine and alcohol abuse increases, which also negatively impacts the baby’s growth. There could be low birth weight, premature birth and developmental delays after birth.

How it can be managed?

While the hormonal changes during pregnancy causes mood swings, diagnosing if it is depression is important. A consultation with a psychiatrist may be required for some women.

Some of the options available for treatment include support groups, individual counseling, and medications.

  1. It is important to understand that this is a common condition and you are not the only one going through this. Talking to other women who feel depressed can help in mood uplifting of all involved.

  2. If you are too shy about it, individual counseling could be the next best thing.

  3. Stress management including light exercise, music, meditation, rest, diet, and support from close friends and family are highly recommended.

  4. Since most antidepressants would reach the baby, it is advisable to avoid these less you need them as a last resort. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychologist.
