5 Reasons Behind Missed Periods!

EMDR, FRCOG (LONDON) (Fellow of Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists), MFSRH , Diploma in psychosexual therapy, Medical diploma in clinical Hypnosis, Diploma in Evidence Based Healthcare, DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology), MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MBBS

5 Reasons Behind Missed Periods!

It's anything, but difficult to make a hasty judgment when you understand your period is late. In case you're attempting to conceive, you may have this feeling of incredulity. In case you're not, you may feel frustrated or disarrayed in the event that you know it is highly unlikely you could be pregnant. The truth of the matter is, however, the vast majority naturally consider pregnancy, at the time of a late period, it may be the case that or one of numerous different conceivable outcomes.

Here's a summary of the common causes behind a missed period:

  1. Preganancy: Sometimes when you miss your period, the cause maybe exactly what you think you could be pregnant! The initial symptoms of pregnancy such as bloating of the stomach, cramping of stomach, and tenderness in breasts can resemble the feeling that you get before your periods; may create confusion whether you are actually pregnant or if your periods are a little delayed. If your periods are delayed for over 10 days, then it is better to take a home pregnancy test.
  2. StressStress can have several effects on your body such as headaches, acne, weight gain and other issues. Stress can also make you miss your periods. When you are stressed, your body synthesizes stress hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline. These elevated levels force your brain to differentiate between essential and non-essential functions of the body. The blood supply to the muscles of the body can increase while systems such as the digestive system or the reproductive system can be subdued. This results in delayed period.
  3. Excessive exercise: Working out and maintaining fitness is a great thing to do; although when you overdo it, it restricts your body from producing enough oestrogen, the hormone that helps in completing your menstrual cycle. Thus professionals such as ballet dancers, athletes and gymnasts face a higher chance of suffering through amenorrhea (missing periods) for 3-4 months. Also if you work out too much without consuming enough calories, it can cause disruptions.
  4. Illness: When your body is battling a disease such as common cold or even fever, your brain starts concentrating on the functions that are important for the body. This can contribute to missing your period.
  5. Weight: If you lose excessive amount of weight without maintaining a good diet, you can deprive your body from producing oestrogen that helps build up the uterine lining. The same thing happens with eating disorders such as bulimia or anorexia. On the contrary, if you are obese, it can result in over production of oestrogen that can stop your ovulation in totality. This may lead to heavy, irregular periods. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

Last month I got my period on 17th july and ended up around 20 july then had unprotected sex with my bf on 24th july (did not ejaculated inside) though after the sex there was no discharge since then I counted days and took a pregnancy test after 14 days of sex and it is negative which was on 7th aug will take another on 14th aug though I am not feeling any symptoms of pregnancy my breasts are normal no abnormal abdomen pain no fatigue or nausea m rather energetic every day no abnormal discharge thus theres no white discharge. Discharge is really less n transparent n bit stretchy type like I use to get before my periods its like a symptom for my period but on 8th I noticed a small n tiny dot like spot but not pink or brown was like period and again on 10th it is so small that it can get ignored (i keep on fingering to check for any abnormalities I admit that the area also became bit dry. But no cramp no headache. I am a pcos. So I always get period symptoms like nipple pain or cramps before 4 days of period (do not know if this information can help) though I feel I am not pregnant and will get my periods as expected may be around 17 or 18 this month (at may I got periods o 24 at june on 18 and at july it was 17) but bit worried about that small n tiny dot like spot. Please help or give any suggestions it will be really kind of you.

Hi. If you are worried about being pregnant then there are least chances. As there was no ejaculation and also the test has shown negative. When you talk about spotting and your regular period then I would like you to know that our mind is very mysterious. And if you are under stress then your periods also can become irregular. So if they are altered don't panic. And to avoid such instances in future you should use condoms.

Lack Of Sexual Desire - How Can A Doctor Help?

Lack Of Sexual Desire - How Can A Doctor Help?

Today, there is no disease that cannot be cured. Be it related to any part of the body, medications and doctors can come to your rescue immediately. Similarly, low sex drive is also curable. It is a medical condition, caused due to various factors and can be treated under the proper guidance of a doctor. The condition is known as Inhibited Sexual Desire (ISD). A person suffering from ISD exhibits only one symptom: low sexual desire. A person suffering from ISD refuses to engage in sexual activities with anyone. It has been observed that they neither start nor respond to anyone’s sexual move or overtures. It is a common problem faced by the new age couples in the metro cities.

ISD can be of two different types: primary and secondary. If the patient has never developed sexual desire in his or her lifetime, the condition is primary. The secondary condition occurs when a person began a relationship with the opposite sex partner with normal drive but later gave up the interest towards sexual activities.

Sometimes, patients also develop situational ISD due to stress ad strains in a relationship. The patient may have sexual desire towards others and be disinterested with his or her partner. Whatever may be the condition, medical guidance by a trained and experienced doctor is a must. Here’s how your doctor can help you in gaining back your interest in sexual activities:

1. Counseling: A doctor can treat ISD by counseling. It has been found that many couples first need marriage counselling to improve their relationship first. The training will help couples in learning how to express their love and affection towards each other and respect each other’s emotions and feelings. The couples should also know how to vent their anger and resolve problems and differences in their conjugal life. The sexual counselling helps couple to learn how to carry out their sexual activities in an interesting manner. The doctor then may prescribe you (in case of males) some drugs to activate your sex life.

2. Hormone Therapy: A woman’s sex drive depends on the influence of sex hormones, especially estrogen. Doctor may give small doses of estrogen to the woman patient by prescribing vaginal cream or any skin patch to increase blood flow to her private part, increasing its sensitivity.

3. Lifestyle Changes: A doctor can help you by advising certain lifestyle changes that are adversely impacting your sex life. The doctor is able to find out the activities or events in your daily life—by interacting with you—that are responsible for sexual aversion.

I hope you are under care of a qualified gynecologist for your pregnancy. and are also taking the medicines for "thyroid problem:" You are 5 months pregnant . By now your gynecologist must have started Iron and Calcium tablets and these can usually help feel better. If you are feeling unwell, it could be due to "less food intake" as compared to what you should have. During pregnancy there is a lot of residual acidity and this gets increased by food fads. From the time you get up till you sleep, do the follwoing: 1. eat small meals, like small wati ( bowl ) full meals every 2 hours. 2. Eating more sweet things can help replenish sugar which is the chief source of energy. 3. Avoid acidity by eating frequently and having a meals nutritious meals including of curds or butter milk 4. If you still have vomitting sensation, you can have antacid syrups or tablets for reducing hyperacidity which can be availed off from chemists on showing a prescription. 5. Your last meal should be at least 2 hours before your sleeping time, this prevents regurgitation of food on lying down so visit your gynecologist and discuss the problem with them

Did your boyfriend ejected inside your vagina? if yes, firstly get your pregnancy tested? if he did not ejected inn. Then no chance of pregnancy at all. Secondly for your lack of energy and above listed problem follow this natural remedy: there are 2 kinds of tulsi leaves we come across. One is" ram tulsi" (which is lighter in shade) and the other one is" shyam tulsi" (which is darker in shade) you have to consume 10-15 leaves of" shyam tulsi" which means the leaves with darker shade. Take 10 to 15 leaves of shyam tulsi and grind it into a paste. Boil this paste in 200 ml of water until the water comes down to the level of 100 ml. Consume this water swallowing (never chew tulsi) the leave remains daily in 3 installments without break. I guarantee you that you will feel better instantly and will get a permanent cure in some days. Besides natural remedies doesn't even have any side effects along with them. Besides keep yourself warm and away from cold/heat.

There is sperm in pre-cum so you cant rule it out although I would say it is VERY unlikely if he literally went in and then pulled right out and stayed out. No, sex doesnt delay periods if there is no pregnancy but if you are worrying a lot that you might be pregnant then the anxiety, stress and worry might delay your period. Even worrying about exams, family or work problems can delay periods if the worry is big enough.

Jhaiya Hatane Ke Gharelu Nuskhe - झाइयों का इलाज

ये प्रदूषण, गर्मी, भागदौड़ भरी अनियमित लाइफस्टाइल ऐसे में तो शरीर के हर हिस्से बुरी तरह प्रभावित होते हैं। पर सबसे ज्यादा और जल्दी इसका बुरा प्रभाव दिखने लगता है हमारे चेहरे पर। जी हां कील,मुहांसे,पिंपल्स, दाग धब्बे झाइयां आदि और ये खतरनाक होते हैं कि बस इनसे छुटकारा मिलना मुश्किल हो जाता है। लेकिन क्या करें समस्या तो गंभीर हैं पर इनके कारणों से तो पूरी तरह बच नहीं सकते तो जरूरी है कि हमें इससे बचने के साथ ही इसके उपचार करने की टिप्स भी मालूम हो। तो आज इसी सिलसिले में हम बात करेंगे चेहरे पर आने वाली झाइयों की।
झाइयां त्वचा संबंधी समस्या हैं जो किसी भी व्यक्ति को हो सकती है। झाइयाँ हल्के भूरे रंग की होती है जो धूप में ज्यादा देर तक रहने से त्वचा पर निकल आती हैं यह समूह में भी पैदा होती है आपके चेहरे पर एक भी दाग दिखे तो आप सतर्क हो जाइए ये अनाकर्षक होती है इसलिए ये चेहरे पर फैल जाए इससे पहले ही आप इसके निजात पाने के उपाय अपनाएं। और उपचार के उन नुस्खों के लिए जरूरी नहीं कि आप डॉक्टर या स्किन एक्सपर्ट के पास ही जाए या कास्मेटिक यूज़ करें बल्कि आप हमारे बताए कुछ घरेलू टिप्स घर पर ही आजमाएं साफ सुथरी बेदाग निखरी त्वचा पाएं।

1. शहद 
शहद में ऐसे एंजाइम होते हैं जो त्वचा पर झाई से बने काले धब्बे मिटा सकते हैं। शहद और गेंहू का आटा मिलाएं और उसे अच्छी तरह से अपने चेहरे पर लगायें। 10 मिनट तक रखकर गुनगुने पानी से धो लें।

2. प्याज 
प्याज में सल्फर होता है जो हर तरह के दाग मिटाने में गुणकारी होता है। लाल प्याज का पेस्ट बनाकर चेहरे पर झाई वाली जगह पर लगाएं। चाहें तो आप प्याज की स्लाइज काटकर भी चेहरे पर मल सकते है पर पेस्ट ज्यादा असरदार होता है।

3. आलू 

आलू झाई कम करने के लिए बेहतरीन नुस्खा है। आलू छीलकर उसकी 1 स्लाइस काट लें। एक बर्तन में थोड़ी छाछ लेकर उसमे यह स्लाइस डुबोकर झाई पर रगड़ें। लगातार 5 मिनट तक मालिश करते रहें। हफ्ते में 3 बार यह उपाय करें और कुछ ही दिनों में झाइयों से मुक्त चेहरा पाएं।

4. पुदीने के पत्ते 
 एक पका केला बर्तन में मसल लें। पुदीने के पत्तों को पीसकर उसमे मिलाएं। यह मिश्रण झाई की जगहों पर लगाएं। जब यह पैक पिघलना शुरू हो जाए तब पानी से चेहरा धो लें।

5. फ्रूट्स मास्क
फलों का मास्क बनाने के लिए पपीता, हिसालू, ककड़ी और अनानास इन सभी फलों को इक्वल क्वांटिटी में पीसकर पेस्ट बनाएं और झाई की जगहों पर लगाएं। 15 मिनट तक रखकर फिर धो लें। आपको त्वचा में बदलाव दिखने लग जायेगा।

6. खट्टी मलाई 
खट्टी मलाई में मौजूद लेक्टिक अम्ल त्वचा से झाई मिटाने में काफी असरदार होता है। थोड़ी सी खट्टी मलाई को चेहरे पर लगाएं। सूखने तक रुकें। फिर टिश्यू पेपर से उसे पोछ लें। त्वचा की शुष्कता को मिटाने के लिए मॉइस्चराइजर लगा लें।

7. नीम्बू का रस 

नीम्बू बेहद फायदेमंद फल है इस फल में प्राकृतिक अम्लीय गुण मौजूद होते हैं, अतः यह चेहरे पर पैदा होने वाले किसी भी दाग पर सुधार करता है। इसलिए एक नीम्बू को 2 भागों में काटें और रसभरे भाग को चेहरे के झाइयों वाले भाग पर लगाएं। 15 मिनट तक प्रतीक्षा करने के बाद इसे धो लें।

8. टमाटर
टमाटर लाइकोपीन  से भरपूर होता है, जो कि एक शक्तिशाली एंटी ऑक्सीडेंट है और त्वचा की किसी भी तरह की समस्या को दूर करने की क्षमता रखता है।  एक पका टमाटर लें और इसे पीसकर महीन पेस्ट बनाएं। अब इस पेस्ट से  2 से 3 मिनट तक चेहरे की मालिश करें। फिर इसे 15 मिनट के लिए छोड़कर दोबारा हल्के हाथों से मालिश करें। इसके बाद सादे पानी से धो लें।

9. एलोवेरा और हरे नारियल का पानी
एलोवेरा में त्वचा की मरम्मत करने और इसे पोषण देने के बेहतरीन गुण होते हैं। इसके पत्तों में मौजूद विटामिन इ त्वचा के लिए बेहतरीन एंटीऑक्सीडेंट का काम करता है। दूसरी तरफ हरे नारियल पानी में चेहरे की रंजकता और बेरंगपने को दूर करने के बेहतरीन गुण होते हैं। एलोवेरा जेल को पीसकर तथा इसे साफ़ सूती के कपड़े से छानकर घर बैठे एलोवेरा जेल बना लें। एलोवेरा के इस जेल को नारियल पानी के साथ 2:1 के अनुपात में मिश्रित करें और कम से कम 20 मिनट के लिए छोड़ दें। अंत में अपने चेहरे को हरे नारियल पानी से धो लें। अच्छे रिजल्ट्स के लिए इसे रोज़ाना 1 से 2 बार दोहराएं।

10. हल्दी और चन्दन 
हल्दी और चंदन का इस्तेमाल सदियों से चेहरे की देखभाल के लिए किया जाता रहा है, एक इंच ताज़ा हल्दी की जड़ लें और इसे पीसकर पेस्ट बनाएं। अब चन्दन की लकड़ी को पत्थर पर घिसकर इसका पेस्ट तैयार करें। अब हल्दी के पेस्ट को 2 चम्मच चन्दन के पेस्ट के साथ मिश्रित करें और इसे अपनी त्वचा पर लगाएं। इसे पूरी तरह सूखने दें और फिर धीरे धीरे 2 मिनट तक मालिश करके चेहरे से इसे हटा लें। इसके बाद इसे पानी से धो लें।

11. केसर, दूध और जायफल 
2 चम्मच कच्चे गाय के दूध में केसर के 3 से 4 दाने 2 से 3 घंटों तक भिगोकर रखें। अब दूध में ही केसर के दानों को पीस लें तथा इसमें आधा चम्मच पिसा हुआ जायफल मिश्रित करें। इन्हें अच्छे से मिक्स करके एक तरल सा पैक तैयार करें। इस पैक का प्रयोग चेहरे के प्रभावित भागों पर परतों में करें। एक बार पहली परत के सूख जाने पर दूसरी परत का प्रयोग करें। इस तरह 3 से 4 परतें लगाएं और अंत में अपने हाथों से इसे मलकर धो लें।

Breastfeeding, suppresses menstruation at least for a while. For some mothers, there may be an absence of menstruation for weeks, months, and even years while still breastfeeding. Some mothers will even need to completely wean before they see their first period. Others, once their babies begin taking supplemental foods or sleeping longer periods at night, will see the first period. Once menstruation returns it may continue to be irregular during lactation. It's not uncommon to have a shorter or longer than normal period while breastfeeding. It's also not abnormal to skip a period or see the first period return and then find that months pass before the next one. When the first period returns depends upon several factors: 1. how frequently the baby is nursing, 2. how often the baby is supplemented with bottles, 3. how long the baby is sleeping at night, 4. whether or not solids have been introduced, and 5. the mother's own individual body chemistry and the way it responds to hormonal influences associated with breastfeeding. 6. Any time the stimulation to the breast is decreased, especially at night, menstruation is likely to return soon after.

Inactivated Influenza Vaccine During Pregnancy

DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology), Fellowship in Minimal Access Surgery, MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist,
Inactivated Influenza Vaccine During Pregnancy

During pregnancy, flu (influenza) can impose serious health implications for both the mother and the child. Due to pregnancy, the risk of developing complications like pneumonia are very high, which can pose as a problem during childbirth. Miscarriage, low birth weight, premature birth are some of the major issues, which might develop if the mother has suffered from flu during her pregnancy. Although flu vaccination during pregnancy has certain risks, it has been observed that in most cases the benefits of inactivated influenza vaccine outweigh the risks. However, Live attenuated influenza vaccine is not recommended at all during pregnancy.

Recommendations across the world suggest that prevention of influenza by administration of inactivated influenza vaccine is the best intervention in pregnancy. The vaccine for Flu should be administered before the onset of flu season. RANZCOG, NHS UK, RCOG, FOGSI recommends inactivated flu vaccine for all the pregnant women unless there are any contraindications. 

Taking inactivated influenza vaccine can be beneficial in multiple ways:

  1. Prevents maternal complications: During pregnancy, the heart and lungs go through extra stress. Pregnancy can also severely impact your immune system. Opting for a inactivated flu vaccine can decrease significantly, the chance of falling severely ill due to flu.
  2. Prevents pregnancy problems due to flu: Getting infected by flu during pregnancy can increase the chance of miscarriage during childbirth. Administering inactivated flu shots can prevent miscarriage as well as premature birth and low birth weight.
  3. Protects the baby after birth: Infants have a huge risk of getting infected with flu after birth. But as vaccines cannot be administered to them until they are 6 months old, it is the best recourse to opt for inactivated flu shots during pregnancy as the antibodies pass onto the child from the mother via placenta. The child can hence be protected from such diseases.

Some concerns
Often, one fear about the vaccine, is the development of Gullain Barre syndrome. This is very rare and the risk of GBS are higher following influenza like illness. Also, if the patient is allergic to eggs they are advised to consult a physician. Flu vaccines have traces of egg protein in it. Certain precautions are taken after studying the patient's medical history. The doctor may keep the patient under observation. Or in certain instances the physician might suggest alternative flu vaccine, which do not contain egg protein. Physicians decide it after studying any prior allergic reaction.

As per  the WHO SAGE position paper, from 1990 to 2009 the vaccine adverse event reporting system database in USA reported only 20 serious adverse events following administration of trivalent influenza vaccine to an estimated 11.8 million pregnant women.
