Dear Lybrate User, Irregular Periods Advice Irregular periods can be caused due to different reasons like stress, poor nutrition, sudden weight loss, excessive exercise, anorexia nervosa and the most common hormonal disturbances in women.  If you have already been told that irregularity in your periods is due to certain hormonal imbalances then to correct them is important. For example a thyroid hormone imbalance can cause menstrual irregularities when the amount of thyroid hormone is the blood is too low or high. Try the following simple tips to regularize your menstrual flow - Avoid any sudden weight changes. Eating disorders like anorexia or low nutrient stores in the body can cause irregular periods. So have a well balanced diet with whole cereals and grains, pulses, dairy products, eggs, fish, lean meat and poultry, not to forget plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. Avoid any kind of stress as far as possible as the main cause of irregular periods is stress (fear, depression, a family holiday, stress at work, relationship stress). Get moderate regular exercise as exercise like a light jog or meditation is a good way to burn the stress levels in the body. To regularize your periods drink a glass of fresh carrot juice daily on regular basis for 3 months. Asafetida, fenugreek seeds, sesame seeds and ginger also help to regularize the periods, liberally include them in your meals while cooking.  For any further clinical assistant kindly revert back to me. Thanking You.

Hi, For your tummy first get checked with a surgeon whether you have hernia, umbilical or incisional .If there is a hernia requiring surgery get it done. Meanwhile you have to learn abdominal core muscle strengthening exercises and start doing it which you have to do after the surgery also if you undergo one. Otherwise with exercise alone you can see whether your tummy is going in. But please check with a doctor what is it you are suffering from. RegRding your cycle it is absolutely normal and your tiredness ,back pain are due to other things like taking care of children. Also back pain may be due to your bulging tummy which can alter the curvature of your back and giving pain. E er isle is the best remedy for everything.

Is it safe to have sex during pregnancy? Til what time/ months is it okay to have sex? Be it protected or unprotected.
If the pregnancy is normal and without any problems, you can have sex as long as your partner is comfortable. If she has any pregnancy related problems, it is best to consult her gynecologist.

Great, you raised gd query, every woman should know well in advance so she can plan her life. Usually cycle is of 28 days, when menses starts its 1st day, 1st 3 days is supposed to be healthier n normal flow without pain n clots, usually on 14th days or mid of your cycle is probably ovulation with a bit of feverish n pain in abdomen +/-2 days usually ovum survive for a day 24-72 hrs so from your day of menses day 12 to 16 you've privilege to conceive. Therefore 1 n last week of menses supposed to be safe but no one offer guarrentee as nature n your fate has to play its role. Condom is best for sparing from undue consequences like unplanned pregnancy and std take care, feel free to contact.

Hello, You can resort to some natural herbs to treat your irregular period problem. I am listing some below: CHASTE BERRY: The best known hormone balancing herb for women, Chaste berry helps to regulate the female gynecological system. It works by normalizing the secretions of the pituitary gland, hypothalamus, and ovaries, which then appropriately signal to balance the endocrine system. Note – This herb is not recommended if you are taking any fertility drug. It should not be consumed during pregnancy. SHATAVARI: Shatavari is also known to restore the balance of hormones in women. Mix it with equal amount of Ashwagandha and take 1 teaspoon with warm milk at night daily. OTHER HERBS: Some other herbs you can try to regain healthy menstruation: Holy basil (Tulsi), Black cohosh, licorice (Mulethi) root, turmeric, and Evening primerose oil. (If you are on medications, always consult your doctor first). DIETARY CHANGES: Drink carrot juice, aloe vera juice, grape juice. Add ginger, cinnamon, pumpkin seeds, green (unripe) papaya, sesame seeds (with Jaggery), Apple Cider Vinegar and wheat grass to your diet. Also eat other seasonal fruits and vegetables and drink plenty of water throughout the day. Most women return to healthy menstruation cycle following these remedies. However, if you don’t benefit from the above, you should see your gynaecologist immediately. Stay healthy. Life Fit.

Hello. Can we do both side sex I mean at vagina and ass I had listen that there is some disadvantage of doing sex in ass do you people think so.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry

Anal sex is an unnatural way of intercourse and definitely carries the risk of infections, injuries and tears to anal canal causing fissures etc. anal sex even if consented by both partners is a perversion. Vaginal sex is the natural way of having penetrative sex.

Hi, I am pregnant, in my 8th month and I am in USA. Recently I got a dental gum pain, followed by left face pain and now the whole head s paining. I consulted a dentist and a ENT specialist. Dentist says he can see gum irritation but no infection. General physician says no ear infection, no inflammation in the nasal tract.. No swelling in face, no bleeding, no foreign body stuck in between teeth, no caries tooth. Had a gum cleaning to Check for any infection. They gave me anesthesia on one side to do the gum cleaning but the pain in the gum did not subside. But they say things are fine and asked to goggle with salt water alone. But the pain has not subsided so far.

Myofascial pain syndrome is a chronic pain disorder. In myofascial pain syndrome, pressure on sensitive points in your muscles (trigger points) causes pain in seemingly unrelated parts of your body. This is called referred pain. Myofascial pain syndrome typically occurs after a muscle has been contracted repetitively. This can be caused by repetitive motions used in jobs or hobbies or by stress-related muscle tension. While nearly everyone has experienced muscle tension pain, the discomfort associated with myofascial pain syndrome persists or worsens. Treatment options for myofascial pain syndrome include physical therapy and trigger point injections. Pain medications and relaxation techniques also can help.

Causes And Symptoms Of Cushing's Syndrome!

MCH, MS- Surgery, MBBS

Causes And Symptoms Of Cushing's Syndrome!

Cushing’s syndrome occurs due to abnormally high levels of the hormone cortisol. This can happen for a variety of reasons. The most common cause is overuse of corticosteroid medications.

Causes:

Your adrenal glands produce cortisol. It helps with a number of your body’s functions, including:

  1. Regulating blood pressure and the cardiovascular system

  2. Reducing the immune system’s inflammatory response

  3. Converting carbohydrates, fats, and proteins into energy

  4. Balancing the effects of insulin

  5. Responding to stress

Your body may produce high levels of cortisol for a variety of reasons, including:

  1. High stress levels, including stress related to an acute illness, surgery, injury, or pregnancy, especially in the final trimester

  2. Athletic training

  3. Malnutrition

  4. Alcoholism

  5. Depressionpanic disorders, or high levels of emotional stress

The most common cause of Cushing’s syndrome is the use of corticosteroid medications, such as prednisone, in high doses for a long period. High doses of injectable steroids for treatment of back pain can also cause this syndrome.

Other causes include:

  1. A pituitary gland tumor in which the pituitary gland releases too much adrenocorticotropic hormone, which is also known as Cushing’s disease

  2. Ectopic ACTH syndrome, which causes tumors that usually occur in the lung, pancreas, thyroid, or thymus gland

  3. An adrenal gland abnormality or tumor

Symptoms of Cushing’s Syndrome:

The most common symptoms of this condition are:

  • Weight gain
  • Obesity
  • Fatty deposits, especially in the midsection, the face and between the shoulders and the upper back (causing a buffalo hump)
  • Purple stretch marks on the breasts, arms, abdomen, and thighs
  • Thinning skin that bruises easily
  • Skin injuries that are slow to heal
  • Acne
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle weakness
  • Increased thirst
  • Increased urination
  • Bone loss
  • Depression
  • An increased incidence of infections

Women may also notice extra facial and body hair, as well as absent or irregular menstruation.

Men may also have:

you will have to do hunting for doctors who give a chance and remain with patients for 12 hours, watching over the progress of labor if you. didn't have a bony defects as cause of operation, then you can try for normal delivery as the gap between the two will be about 3 years get regular antenatal done. develop a bond with the doctors who will be working like a team along with you in their team good luck.

I am a 31 year old woman who has completely lost interest in sex almost immediately after marriage (now 5 years) i've gone to a psychotherapist for 2 years now, but it doesn't seem to be helping. Are there any medicines I can take for this? can this be a physical problem rather than a mental one? if so, what type of doctor should I consult with?

See there is no treatment that can guarantee twin pregnancy. Still if you go for ivf, it ll increase your chances of twins. Better ye hain k single baby hi ho. Twins pregnancy is complicated at times. You can try to conceive on your own, if you don't conceive then you need treatment.

How Your Salad Maybe Causing More Harm Than Good!

How Your Salad Maybe Causing More Harm Than Good!

Salads are often a meal option when you want to throw in a whole lot of fresh vegetables and nice dressing to go with it, for a comprehensive meal. It's light and fresh and extremely nutritious. That is what most people think.

However, in some cases, your salad may be doing more harm than good to your health:

  1. Eating fresh, raw vegetables may be good once in a while, but eating too much of raw veggies make it difficult for your digestive tract to break down and digest. You may start suffering from gas, indigestion or bloating.
  2. Most people eat salads to lose weight, but this works only according to your body type. There are certain body types for whom too many damp foods like salads, actually causes the body to retain the dampness and thus making it harder to lose weight.
  3. Avoid those so called 'fat free' salad dressings that have become so popular in the market. Such dressings take the fat out of it and try to replace it with something that is artificial and genetically modified. They also have high level of fructose corn syrup that is extremely damaging by adding to your fat and making you resistant to insulin.
  4. Avoid vegetables that have been grown with fertilizers and pesticides and opt for organic produce instead. Genetically modified (GMO) crops have been known to be the cause of several chronic diseases and conditions.
  5. A distinction must be made between healthy and unhealthy fats. Processed oils and refined oils that are added to salads can increase LDL cholesterol and make you prone to coronary heart disease.
  6. Adding too much protein to your salad can be counterproductive and redundant, exposing you to the risk of cancer.

This however, doesn't mean that you should stay away from your favorite salad, but to be aware of what goes into it and how much. Don't always be fooled by its freshness and pockets of flavor.
