Hi, first of all do self examination of breast with your hand kept flat on breast, pressing it against ribs, moving on all around breast. If you feel any lump under your hand, go to doctor or get done your ultrasonomammography done & send me report. If no lump felt, report me.

You are pregnant for sure, remember hcg is pregnancy hormone, can be detected in blood as soon as conception occurs but when level exceeds 1000, that is after 3-4 days of skipped date, hormone comes out through urine and sensitive lines pick it up to show as 2 lines, faint line means early pregnancy. Do urine kit test after a week if you need reassurance, you will see 2 lines, well formed.

I am 18 year old and I was suffering from PCOS but I have taken proper medical advice but its not cured may be a continuous white vaginal discharge is there. Is it normal?

Hi lybrate-user, pcod is not curable. Your periods will be irregular without medication. The only concern will be fertility issues. White discharge is not due to pcod it could be because of infection.

As you already had menses after having sex, you can not be pregnant. Delayed menses this time is not related related to pregnancy or sex which you had in feb. Menses can naturally delayed by hormonal changes or stress.

Your fasting sugar levels both fbs and pp are within normal limits. There are not of pre- diabetic level yet. (fbs 108 to 125 mg and pp 141 to 199 mg/100 ml are pre- diabetes levels). But it is better to be cautious, do regular exercise and also take a healthy balance diet. That will be good, as it will help maintain normal weight.

I am a very exercise loving person. I alternatively run and do jumprope. Is it okay to do such exercise during periods?
No any physical exertion during menses should be completely stopped n exercise is a strict no. Take rest as much as you can take. Exercising during menses will cause irregularity of menses, scanty menses etc. In the long run.

5 Bedroom Role Plays To Spice Your Love Life

5 Bedroom Role Plays To Spice Your Love Life

May it be marriage or a relationship, things could go downhill in due course of time. The reason behind such a situation could be any; while mental compatibility could turn things sour, physical compatibility constitutes a significant part too. Identifying the problem is of utmost importance. Shying away from sexual dissatisfaction hampers the individual lives of both partners. Therefore, couples should take an initiative to talk about it and take a step further to remedy the problem. It has often been seen that a person’s sex life can get boring due to an imminent lack of variety. Adding a zing to your usual sex life can be made possible through bedroom role playing.

Go through the following tips for trying out bedroom role play:

  1. Bathe each other and do it in flow: Walking into the bath together can add fervor to a dull and drab sex life. While partners bathe each other, they come to know of a different side of their lover. This binds two individuals better. Intercourse in the shower has proved to be enjoyable for many people. It can also be seen as another way of taking care of your dear one.
  2. Try out the royalty - servant trope: Playing the role of a different person altogether can make you enjoy intercourse even more. The man could play the role of a king or a senior courtier while the woman plays the role of a maid servant. Or, it could be just the opposite where the man servant is obliged to have sex with the queen or with any of her companions.
  3. The age old idea of being the doctor while she is the nurse: The doctor nurse duo is a great way to add thrill to your relationship. The more imaginative a couple can get, the more satisfaction they derive. To make role playing more convincing, you must try using relevant dialogues.
  4. Bold & experienced woman and the innocent young boy fantasy: You could play the dominatrix by being an experienced woman who holds the reign to her fantasy. Sex proceeds as she instructs the innocent young boy about how to go about with things.
  5. Directly reverse the general roles you both play: The roles each of you is accustomed to play in bed could be directly reversed to humor and excite both the partners. So, if the woman is generally under, she should go on top and initiate sex. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a sexologist.

I don't recommend any hormonal cream. Some exercises, special oils for massage and one raw fruit powder of diospyros (east indian ebony) will take care of it but it's not overnight magic. Do it for sometime for sure shot response.

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common disorder among women of your age. Don’t worry, a lot of females knowingly or unknowingly suffer from this but it can be controlled to a great extent by following some medications, few lifestyle changes ,good diet and exercise. The main cause of PCOS is hormonal imbalance that may or may not be hereditary. Excessive levels of androgens that are male hormones, but females also produce is small quantity, can lead to problem with ovulation in females. Confirm to me if you are experiencing these symptoms - missed or irregular periods, excessive facial and body hair growth, cyst on the ovaries, sudden weight gain, pelvic pain, acne or mood swings? If yes, then you are most likely suffering from hormonal imbalance which needs proper attention. Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is curable with the Homeopathic mode of treatment. Homeopathic treatment for polycystic ovarian syndrome is very safe and free from any side effect. Which Homeopathic medicine is required to extract the disease from its roots varies from case to case. Both the physical and mental spheres of the patient are thoroughly investigated while prescribing the Homeopathic medicine. The complete cure of PCOS is a time-consuming process and it cannot be expected in a few days. Along with the treatment a regular exercises, a healthy diet, weight control is also equally necessary. A good treatment can be started after proper diagnosis with the help of blood tests, pelvic examination and an ultrasound. In my many years of practice, I have successfully treated many patients for the same. No Periods/Missed Period If a woman does not get her period for a while, it might be because she is pregnant. Or in some cases, it might be that she has a medical condition that affects her reproductive organs. The exact cause can be known only after thorough history & physical examination by a gynecologist, so visit one nearest to you today to prevent complications. Absent or irregular periods may be caused due to pregnancy, PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome), being too thin or having too little body fat, exercising too much, use of birth control pills etc. The most common tests that we do to find out the cause of no periods is urine pregnancy test, hormonal assay & ultrasound of the pelvis. Depending upon what is the cause for no periods, the treatment is decided You should opt Homoeopathic treatment for the permanent cure of the underlying cause of irregular periods. Possible treatment will include losing weight if you are overweight, medicines to help you get pregnant if you are having trouble getting pregnant on your own, reducing stress, easing up on exercise if you are exercising too much and other medicines to manage your hormones.

Probiotics as a Health Supplement

Probiotics as a Health Supplement

The human body consists of a wide variety of bacteria which are either good or bad for your body. The general image of bacteria is that they only cause harm to your body, but this is not the actual scenario and there are many types of good bacteria as well which are actually beneficial for your health. Probiotics are health supplements that usually contain live bacteria to be consumed in solid or liquid form. One of the most important functions of probiotics is that they help in ensuring a functional and healthy digestive system.

Why are they beneficial for you?

Whenever you experience a fall in the good bacteria count inside your body due to activities like taking heavy antibiotic medications on a regular basis, then probiotics come into the picture. Probiotics actually reverse the change caused by antibiotics and raises the good bacteria inside your body. Additionally, probiotics also help in maintaining a proper balance between the good and the bad bacteria inside your body.

Types

All the probiotics are classified into 2 broad groups, but you should always consult your dietician before choosing a probiotic for yourself.

  • Lactobacillus - This is the most common form of probiotic, which is usually present in fermented foods and yoghurt. It is most beneficial in cases where people cannot digest lactose (the sugar present in the milk consumed).
  • Bifidobacterium - This is the second category of good bacteria and it mostly regulates and speeds up the activities related to your digestive system. It is usually found in most of the dairy products and it helps to cure a disorder called Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).

In order to ensure safe usage of probiotics, you should always consult your doctor before opting for such a health supplement.

I am newly pregnant I have little pain in my stomach like a period pain and I feel very angry.
Hello, The pain on both sides in the lower abdomen is normal and commonly due to ligament laxity and stretching leading to mild pain which comes and goes. You may use hot fomentation for the same to soothe the pain. Hunger is a good sign and eat healthy. Avoid oily and spicy food which may cause bloating. Regards

Which lubricant to use to avoid burning sensation in vagina during intercourse. We are trying for a child since past 5 months now we want to increase the frequency of intercourse but due to burning it is not possible. Please advise.

MBBS, MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Gurgaon
Burning in vagina is due to infection, so first treat that by drinking lots of water and maintaining​ good personal hygiene. You may need few Medicines too to get free from burning. Also see that your partner's private parts are washed well too before the act. Lubricants are best to be avoided at this stage as they might aggravate your burning.
