She can take emergency pill now, but it is not to be taken very frequently as it can lead to irregular periods. You can use barrier, that is condom. It not only helps prevent pregnancy but also protects against infection.

I want to know about the products being sold in the market for a healthy vagina. Like V wash .n lqds n soaps which are for vaginal use. They say that normal soaps should not be used down there. please tell are they really helpful for keeping our vagina healthy .should I use any of them. please tell in detail .there benefits .

Yes seema, you are right. Normal soaps may disrupt the Ph of vaginal area. There live many microbes in balance and these soaps may destroy the balance there. one should use very soft soaps specially mend for the same. However there is a natural self cleansing phenomenon always going on in vaginal area. Actually one needs not to apply anything there. But if you get regular vaginal infections, you can use soft soaps mend for the same.

There r some galactogauges available like satavary, which you can take to increase the milk production. If the child is still not getting enough milk then you have to give him formula milk.

Maybe some hormonal issue. You can take tablet for withdrawal bleeding and then observe for your periods. If they keep on getting delayed see a doctor. Also you need to lose weight.

Your doctor is doing best to retain this pregnancy. Heart beat is visible from 6-8 weeks. Rising levels of hcg hormone in blood would have been helpful but giving her injection hcg is more important. In normal cases, where no hcg injections are given, viability of pregnancy is assessed by measuring hcg hormone levels in blood. Good luck. Have faith.

Blood test a blood test will give you a reliable result, even at the earliest stage of pregnancy. Your doctor will order the blood test that will check for the pregnancy hormone, human chorionic gonadotrophin (hcg), in your blood. You can have this test done as soon as you have missed your period. Any queries inform me.

Understanding Thyroid Problems in Women: Did You Get the Test Done?

Understanding Thyroid Problems in Women: Did You Get the Test Done?

Do you feel extremely tired many times in a day? Are you experiencing sudden weight gain, chills at night and hair loss? Is your neck a bit bloated up? If you are experiencing any of the mentioned symptoms, it might be that your body regulator- Thyroid- is unbalanced. Quick 3 tests can help you detect any abnormality - TSH, T3 and T4. Women were three times more likely to be affected by thyroid dysfunction than men. 1 in 10 adults in India suffers from hypothyroidism, with 50 per cent being women.

What is the thyroid gland?
The thyroid is a butterfly shaped gland in the front of the neck. It produces hormones that control the speed of your metabolism - the system that helps the body use energy. Thyroid disorders can slow down or rev up your metabolism by disrupting the production of thyroid hormones. When hormone levels become too low or too high, you may experience a wide range of symptoms.

What are the Symptoms?
Thyroid can be of 2 types - Hyper (Overactive) and Hypo (Underactive) Thyroid.

Low and Underactive Thyroid
High and Overactive Thyroid
Fatigue Nervousness
Dry Skin & Hair Tremors - Hand Shaking
Brittle Hair Hair loss or thinning hair
Constipation Diarrhea
Low Pulse High Pulse
Weight Gain Weight loss without trying
Intolerance to cold temperature Intolerance to hot temperature
Depression Sweatiness
Swelling in lower part of neck Swelling in lower part of neck

The swelling in the neck is a major and most significant feature. Hence one should always do the Self Neck Test.

Who should be tested?
Women aged 35 and above or those with symptoms/risk factors/family history are the right candidates for screening. It has been estimated that 75% of the people suffering from thyroid are undiagnosed.

Diagnosing thyroid disorders - A simple blood test can provide an answer. TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone) levels determine thyroid hypo and hyper function as it regulates the work of thyroid gland. Rarely an imaging study or biopsy is needed. Two additional tests may be required - T3 and T4.

What happens if Thyroid remains undetected?
As Thyroid disorders are hormonal imbalances, undetection can lead to a number of secondary complications:

  • Obesity
  • High Cholesterol and Hypertension
  • Hair Fall
  • Heart Disease
  • Complications in pregnancy

GASTROENDOSCOPY

What is gastro endoscopy?

Gastroendoscopy is the visualisation of the oesophagus (aka food pipe), stomach, upper part of duodenum through a gastro-endoscopy. It is also known as esophagogastroduodenoscopy and upper gi gastro-endoscopy.

Gastroendoscopy is an outpatient procedure which means the patient can go home straight after the completion of this procedure.

What is a gatroendoscope?

Gastroendoscope is a highly sophisticated instrument which is having a shaft of 9mm in diameter. It has got a fibre optic bundles passed through the shaft to transmit the light to the tip and the image to the endoscopist.

The adaptation of endoscopes to video monitoring system has been developed to use in computer chip technology and now it is in routine use in all endoscopy suites.

What are the symptoms which could suggest the requirement of a gastro endoscopy?

  1. Heartburn
  2. Acid regurgitation
  3. Dysphasia (difficulty in deglutition)
  4. Water brash (watering regurgitation in the mouth)
  5. Excessive burping and hiccups
  6. Nausea
  7. Vomiting
  8. Pain in the abdomen
  9. Constant feeling of fullness of the abdomen
  10. Distention of the abdomen


How can gastro endoscopy help in medical diagnosis?

During routine upper gi endoscopy the entire oesophagus, stomach and prioximal duodenum are examined. And it is very useful in making the diagnosis of:
 

  • Oesophageal cancer
  • Oesophageal varices
  • Gastric ulcer
  • Gastric polyp
  • Cancer of the stomach
  • Duodenal ulcer and
  • Any space occupying region in the upper gi system

What do patients need to do for a gastro endoscopy procedure?

Patient has to be fasted for 6 or more hours to ensure an empty stomach. And it is being done by giving a topical anaesthetic. The anaesthetic is applied to the pharynx (throat) to numb the gag reflex. Sedation may be required for the procedure.
