I was wrongly advised to take ROSVAS 50 mg for 1 month. I was hospitalized for 10 days due to decline of WBC, PLATELETS & HAEMOGLOBIN. I was discharged 1 month back. But still there is fluctuation in the counts like sudden fall of platelets, from 3, 48, 000 to 1, 18, 000. In the long run will I face any major or minor problems?

Both hypothyroidism and pcod causes menstrual problem. In consultation with the doctor cotrol your hypothyroid condition and simeltaneously treat your pcod problem. Sooner the better.

The potency of green tea varies from brand to brand, as does the potential for toxicity from excessive use. An overdose of green tea can lead to liver damage and other unpleasant side effects. To maximize the health benefits of green tea safely, the ummc recommends drinking 2 to 3 cups daily, giving you 240 to 320 milligrams of polyphenols. If you take green tea extract supplements, 100 to 750 milligrams per day is recommended. Opt for caffeine-free products when possible. Because few studies have been done on green tea's effects on children and pregnant women, it is safest not to give it to them.

If you are already taking hormone tablets then after stopping or completing the one month course or strip you will get periods. It is not advisable to take another hormone tablet inbetween as then your periods will become irregular. For pcod try to maintain your weight and do daily exercise.

You should do a pregnancy test. Take the urine pregnancy test or do a more conclusive serum beta hcg test to be sure you are not pregnant. If you are pregnant, kindly get an ultrasound done to rule out any tubal pregnancy.

No not at all. No chance of pregnancy. If your vaginal fluid is normal no problem. But donot make this habit of drinking semen or vaginal fluid. Just enjoy by oral sucking of penis or clitoris.

If it does not itch and there is no foul smell. Then it can be normal. But if it is otherwise then visit to a gynec is a must.

Symptoms and Diagnosis of Heart Attack

MBBS, MD - Medicine, DM - Cardiology
Cardiologist, Gurgaon
Symptoms and Diagnosis of Heart Attack

A person usually gets a heart attack when there is a blockage in the arteries of the heart. This is an emergency situation that can result in a fatality or death if it is not treated immediately. Not all heart attacks will have a crushing pain in the chest right in the beginning, there are a number of symptoms that can show the slow progression of this attack over a few hours. So how do you know if you are having a heart attack, and what kind of treatment will be required? This article seeks to answer all your questions.

Discomfort in the Chest: The patient will usually feel like there is some pressure and squeezing in the chest or pain or even fullness right in the centre. This pain can come and go every few minutes and it should not be ignored.

Pain and Discomfort in other Parts of the Body: There may be some amount of pain and discomfort in other parts of the body including the arms, the jawline, back, neck, stomach and even the teeth. This pain can also travel down to the abdomen above umbilicus. In case there is persistent pain along with the chest discomfort, then a doctor must be contacted immediately.

Other Symptoms: When you feel breathless without any reason or medical cause, and also when you experience symptoms like anxiety, indigestion, vomiting, nausea, light headedness, dizzy spells and fatigue, you may be suffering from a heart attack.

Immediate Treatment: Once you begin to experience these symptoms along with chest discomfort and chest pain, it is imperative to call the emergency unit of the nearest hospital or get in touch with a cardiologist. Until then, you will need to lie down and chew aspirin if you are not allergic to the same. This is usually more efficient that swallowing.

Diagnosis of heart attack: Heart attack is diagnosed if patient has 2 criteria out of following 3-

  1. Pain or discomfort thought to be due to heart disease

  2. ECG suggestive of heart attack

  3. Elevated levels of cardiac enzymes (CK-MB and Troponin) in blood test (these levels start rising after 6 to 12 hours of heart attack)

Once you reach doctor an ECG should be done immediately along with blood pressure and pulse. If ECG shows heart attack then immediate action needs to be taken. Remember a normal first ECG does not rule out a heart attack. So a series of ECGs may be ordered by the doctor and at proper time blood test of cardiac enzymes may be done. Ruling out a heart attack may need an observation and testing up to 6 – 12 hours as cardiac enzyme test shows results only after that period.

There are numerous ways to be healthy and happy. Eating right, exercising and leading a positive life are all methods that are easier said than done.

  1. Water: Did you know that hydrating is the key to a long life because not only are you pumping essential fluids into your body, but you are also adding plenty of lubrication to your bones and joints. Cut out the sweetened drinks, carbonated beverages and caffeine to make way for water. For every 200 pounds, a person must drink at least 100 ounces of water in a single day.
  2. Rainbow Menu: Ensure that you take in all colours of food like red bell peppers, orange carrots, green spinach, yellow squash, and even more. Eating a dietary rainbow everyday can help in ensuring that you get all the essential nutrients that are packed in all these kinds of foods. All the minerals and nutrients can be extracted from these different types of food in order to ensure that your body remains healthy with a well-balanced diet.

It is a scientifically proven fact that a balanced routine of rest, movement and food can help in keeping your mind in a balance of sorts. The rest factor is one that can be achieved with good nutrition and vice versa, as well. When you are taking good nutrition, your mind will be at rest and the quality of your rest will also help you in working up a normal appetite at the right time, throughout the day.
  4. Exercise: It is a well-known fact that movement of at least 20 minutes per day can help in avoiding an overly sedentary lifestyle which blocks the metabolism and leads to varied aches and pains due to inaction and lack of lubrication of the bones and joints. Exercise also helps in working up a healthy appetite.
  5. Small Meals: Eat five or six small meals in a day in order to ensure that the metabolism that works on time, and in an effective manner so that your food gets digested properly.

With these tips, you can ensure that you fall into a normal routine of eating, resting and exercising, which will in turn help you maintain a healthy and happy life.

I am 25years and have missed my periods by 8 days. What should I do I tried the home pregnancy test and its negative.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist,
I am 25years and have missed my periods by 8 days. What should I do I tried the home pregnancy test and its negative.
You can repeat the test in a lab using the early morning urine sample. If two reports are negative, you are less likely to be pregnant. If you wish you may go to a gynecologist to get examined and the gynec may give you medications to get menses, after seeing your negative test. Home upt are generally not so sensitive or specific and hence a test done in lab is of more predictive value.

Septum in the uterus, increases the risk of abortion or miscarriage. If you already had an abortion, then it would be advisable for you to put cervical stitch to prevent miscarriage this time.

Hi vasanthi, always count your baby movements for 1 hr after having food if u find they are less than 3 , look for another hour if they are still less than 3 . Go for your obstetrician. Sleep on your left side.
