Hi, I am a 27 year old woman. I am suffering from hypothyroidism and taking regular medications for it. I am not married yet, and due to family issues I would not be marrying before two years. Which means I would be around 29 when I get married. I am not interested in having kids for at least 2 years post marriage, so by the time I want one I would turn 31. Everybody keeps telling me that if you are hypothyroid you will have a hell lot of complication if you conceive after 30. I do not want to have kids just because of society's pressure. I want kids when I am mentally prepared to take care of them. Hence please let me know is it really going to be risky for me to have kids after 30, will it lead to any complication?

those peoples are suffering by thyroid...mainly female....there may be problems for conceive. so they should be take continue medicines for thyroid...when thyroid level and other hormones are normal any female can conceive. Take diet for hypothyroidism:- high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread, Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. flax oil, Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, Avoid few foods in hypothroidism i.e. caffeine products tea,coffee, tabcco, alcohol / wine , kale, broccoli, spinach, mustard green, cabbage, turnip, millet, cassava, linseeds, pine nuts, soy products as soy milk, tofu, soybeans, soy souce, also avoid stress. Take Some Relax during work. Proper follow up you can feel better and reduce weight also.

EDD by USG at this gestational age is not that reliable. It should be calculated by date of last menstrual period. Probably your doctor has done that. As she had surgery at early pregnancy, chances of prelabour rupture of membrane can be there. You should visit to doctor at given date. If she allows then can wait spontaneous onset of labour.

Most of Underweight problems could due to lack of interest in food. As you said she has no medical issue, then you have to try other measures. 1. Never try to force food. 2. Children become resistant when parents try to overfeed. 3. Try to prepare dishes which she likes/loves. 4. If she is addicted to junk food try to get her towards fruits, dry fruits etc. 5. If she is slow eater, don't push her to eat fast. 6. Try Mindful eating for all home members. 7. She can have smaller meals/snacks every two hours. 8. Give deworming tablet one dose. 9. Take Multi Vitamin + Minerals tab daily for a month. Try out all this it may work.

It is doubtful to say about it now. Confirm it by using urine pregnancy test. If it comes negative, then her menses has just been delayed. If it comes positive, then she is pregnant.

For reducing your weight you should have brisk walk for 4-5 km daily, high protein diet (fish, chicken, mutton without fat, pulses, mushrooms), low carbohydrate diet (avoid rice, chapatti, bread, poha, upma, idli, dosa, potato, sugar etc and can use bhakri instead) and low fat i. E. Less oil and preferably use rice bran oil.

Hi, there is absolutely nothing to get tensed. After novel on if it is a functional cyst of the ovary it will resolve. It may take more than one cycle. Also if you can post your detailed ultrasound report depending on the nature of the cyst I can tell you whether functional or not.

Any symptom in Breast, such as swelling, redness and especially pain shouldn't be taken lightly. I would suggest you to get a Mammogram of both the breasts and get a routine blood test (Hemoglobin, Total count, Differential Count), ultrasound of the abdomen and a chest x ray. Also consult a Gynecologist with your reports. In case of any doubts with your reports you can consult me. Do not delay your mammogram anymore.

Due to a hormone called Relaxin, the pubic bone in women separates a little as pregnancy advances to allow the full term baby to come lower down and have more space. This may cause some pain in that region. Take any safe painkiller with a little muscle relaxant, plenty of calcium containing foodstuff, apply little hotbag warm compress there and put a thin pillow between thighs when you lie

Hello, these values are foetal growth parameters and doesn't decide whether it would be a normal or c-section delivery. That has to be evaluated by a per vaginal pelvimetric examination.

My friend Preeti had unprotected sex with her boyfriend Lokesh last weekend. He has not ejaculated his sperm but he felt that a drop of sperm has came out of his penis during intercourse. Then he suddenly pulled out his penis. He has given her an I-Pill the next day. Is there any possibility that she will pregnant? How can we know that she is pregnant? How to avoid pregnancy if she gets pregnant?

Dear lybrate user, chances of pregnancy are negligible in your case. One can know about presence of pregnancy by doing urine pregnancy test if she misses her menstrual period. It can be detected earlier by doing a blood test.

My period date was 15 april but I had taken regestrone from april 11 to april 20 two times a day but from april 15 to april 22 I have sex with my husband and I have taken unwanted 72 tablet two times with in this period of time.

You have done a excess loading of the hormones in your body. If you had taken regesterone for postponement of periods, it was ok, but to have unprotected relations was fallacious and so was the decision to take 2 ipill tablets now the only thing you can do it wait. For the natural menses to begin, which will be delayed. And no one can predict how much delay. Unwanted 72 is meant for people who have infrequent sex, and ideally should be taken under a doctors guidance. If a person has (say) 5 unprotected sexual acts, it does not mean she should take 5 ipills after each act. In such case, it is better to use condom or take oral contraceptive pill from the earlier menses date.
