What are the symptoms of being pregnant found in a women in starting 1month of unprotected intercourse?
Most important symptom of pregnancy is missed period. There r other symptoms but all of them appear 2 weeks after the missed period. Those r nausea, vomiting, breast fullness and increased urination. If you have a missed period then you should get urine pregnancy test done at home after 7 days of missed period to confirm it. Menses can also be missed by hormonal changes.

13 Important do’s and don’ts to avoid health hazards caused by floods

The Chennai floods this season have broken all records. The city has not been hit with a rainstorm of this degree in about 100 years. The entire city is reeling under the effects of this flood, with many becoming victims of diseases and injuries as a result.

Floods in your city can increase the spread of waterborne diseases such as cholera, typhoid, Hepatitis A etc. Not only that, the transmission of vector borne diseases such as dengue, malaria and chikungunya increases as well. Severe flooding can even lead to accidents such as electric shocks. However, there are certain precautions you can take to avoid these potential health hazards.

1. Avoid flood waters as these may have been contaminated with sewage and remains of animals
2. Boil water before consuming it or using it to cook food
3. Make sure you wash your hands thoroughly before eating, and drinking and always use a disinfecting soap
4. Avoid water coming from wells until it has been treated
5. Throw away food that has come in contact with flood water, whether it was refrigerated or not
6. Throw away food that has been standing at room temperature for more than two hours or smells foul or has changed colour and texture
7. Make sure you cover and treat any open cuts or wounds
8. Bathe regularly
9. Make sure you use mosquito repellents at home and on your clothing and skin
10. Don’t touch open wire or sockets or let them come in contact with water as it can cause shocks
11. Don’t allow your pets to go outside as they can become hosts of vector borne diseases
12. Throw away accumulated garbage and debris as they can turn into a breeding ground for rats and mosquitoes
13. Make full use of vaccination facilities

By adopting these simple measures, you can safely avoid the most common types of health hazards prevalent during floods.

You must not take any medicine for acne. In thus teenage it is very common due to harmonal changes. You may apply at present only listerin on the acne area at night for one hour. After that wash your face. Drink plenty of liquids. Avoid, spicy junk food.

hi Urvashi ,since you have only one ovary you need to check for egg reserve so as to understand your fertility potential. you should plan baby early so as to avoid future complications. if egg reserve is low then you may have to take treatment for fertility.

Dr. Manisha is right. The first day of periods is counted as the day 1 and ovulation is the best time for conception. Another important aspect is to be stress free. Anxiety works against conception. For how many years have you been married and living together? if this is the first time you are planning then its fine. Otherwise some tests may have to be conducted. Do get back with any further query. All the best.

A menstrual cycle is calculated from the first day of your period to the first day of the next period (1). Safe period is from day 1 to 7 and day 21 to the rest of the cycle, when you can have sex without worrying about getting pregnant. This period will not be the same for all women as it depends on the length of the menstrual cycle. The average menstrual cycle is 28 days or a little less, but if your cycle is longer than 28 days, the safe period is not reliable.

Hello dr, am 15 weeks pregnant women, I want to know the sleeping positions for this pregnancy time,

Hello dr, am 15 weeks pregnant women, I want to know the sleeping positions for this pregnancy time,
Hello, The best sleep position during pregnancy is “SOS” (sleep on side). Even better is to sleep on your left side. Sleeping on your left side will increase the amount of blood and nutrients that reach the placenta and your baby. Keep your legs and knees bent, and put a pillow between your legs. - If you find that you are having problems with back pain, use the “SOS” position, and try placing a pillow under your abdomen as well. - If you are experiencing heartburn during the night, you may want to try propping your upper body with pillows. - In late pregnancy you may experience shortness of breath. Try lying on your side or propped up with pillows. Left is best. Right now, side sleeping is safest for your baby. Plus, it's more comfortable for you as your abdomen grows. Is one side of the body better than the other for sleeping? Experts recommend lying on your left side. It improves circulation, giving nutrient-packed blood an easier route from your heart to the placenta to nourish your baby. Lying on the left side also keeps your expanding body weight from pushing down too hard on your liver. While either side is okay, left is best. These suggestions may not sound completely comfortable, especially if you are used to sleeping on your back or stomach, but try them out. You may find that they work. Keep in mind that you may not stay in one position all night, and rotating positions is fine. Also avoid sleeping on your back: This can cause problems with backaches, breathing, the digestive system, hemorrhoids, low blood pressure and cause a decrease in circulation to your heart and your baby. This is a result of your abdomen resting on your intestines and major blood vessels (the aorta and vena cava). Do not sleep on your stomach: When you are farther along in your pregnancy, your abdomen undergoes physical changes and makes it more difficult for you to lay on your stomach.

Yes. Hymen repair surgeries are done quite commonly now a days. But tearing of hymen and bleeding during first intercourse is not always seen coz of other factors like rigid hymen or accidental rupture during exercise.

I have prolonged bleeding from 25 days. Diagnosis done found uterine polyp of size 4.4cm long and 9 mm thick. Pls suggest the best.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS

The cause of bleeding is the uterine polyp. And hence unless the polyp is removed, the bleeding will continue. Go to a gynecologist and get the d&c polypectomy done. They wills end the removed polyp for examination, and the treatment will depend on the report most polyps are benign (non cancerous) and do not recur if treatment is given. The doctor may prescribe you ocpills for 3 cycles or preogesterone for 3 cycles to stop polyp from recurring. D&c is the simplest surgery and it is done under anesthesia. Its just lasts few minutes and after the mandatory observation for few hours (4-6) you will be discharged from the hospital. So do not fear and get the dnc done.
