She needs to do serum (blood) tsh and ultrasound of pelvis to see the cause. If these are normal then other hormones have to be tested.

IVF Vs. Surrogacy : Which is the Better Option?

DGO, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Delhi
IVF Vs. Surrogacy : Which is the Better Option?

Ivf vs. Surrogacy: which is the better option?

Both IVF (in vitro fertilisation) and surrogacy are alternative methods of having a baby and can be resorted to when a couple cannot conceive the natural way. The reason behind the inability to conceive can be due various reasons ranging from infertility and low sperm count (in men) to damaged fallopian tubes and early menopause (in women).

You can opt for either surrogacy or IVF if you've been trying to conceive for more than a year without any results. But which of the two should you opt for? well, there are three things you must keep in mind before making a choice.

How does it work?

Surrogacy is opted for when the woman is unable to conceive by natural means, and when there's no possibility of her getting pregnant whatsoever. Surrogacy can be of two types- full surrogacy and partial surrogacy. Full surrogacy involves the implantation of sperms and eggs of the couple into the uterus of the surrogate mother; while partial surrogacy involves the fertilisation of the surrogate mother's egg by the sperm of the intended father. By opting for surrogacy the woman partner is unable to carry the child, a desire that is present in most women.

On the other hand, ivf works towards the treatment of infertility in one or both the partners, enabling the woman partner to conceive the child. Ivf involves the fertilisation of a woman's eggs by the sperm of the intended father in a laboratory dish. The developed embryo (or fertilised egg) is then implanted in the woman's uterus. This is a viable option for couples who want to have a baby on their own.

Chances of a successful pregnancy are usually higher with surrogacy when compared to IVF.

The risks involved

Risks of surrogacy include multiple births, ectopic pregnancy (implantation of the fertilised egg in the fallopian tube instead of the uterus, leading to miscarriage) and birth defects in the child, to name a few. Apart from that, the genes of the surrogate mother can affect the development of the unborn baby; hence, a surrogate mother has to be chosen with utmost care.

As for risks associated with IVF, ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (swollen and painful ovaries), multiple births, ectopic pregnancy and stress can take place if ivf is opted for.

The legal process

Surrogacy requires the fulfilment of complex legal processes such as determining eligibility, matching profiles of surrogates with intended parents, finding of a potential surrogate and more, which require proper legal counselling. Besides the cost of surrogacy in India is roughly inr 8, 25, 000.

Ivf does not involve any such processes and is easier to carry out. The cost of IVF in India can range between inr 2, 50, 000 to inr 4, 50, 000, making it a much more viable option.

Based on these factors, you can make the choice of a procedure that is best suited for you.

Hi i'm 33 yrs old lady i've stretch marks on my tummy which looks very weird whenever I wore saree this occur after my first baby delivery who is now 10 yrs old is it possible that now without surgery it will gone.

Advanced Aesthetics
Ayurveda, Gulbarga
Both men and women are susceptible to stretch marks, particularly on the thighs, hips, arms, buttocks, abdominal area, and lower back. There are several causes of stretch marks, including: genetics: women are more likely to get belly stretch marks if their mother, for instance, had stretch marks after pregnancy. Significant weight gain and loss: your skin stretches as your weight fluctuates, sometimes resulting in stretch marks. Puberty: growth spurts during puberty often result in stretch marks as the skin is unable to keep up with the body's rate of growth. Bodybuilding: rapid development of muscle mass may stretch the skin beyond its limits. Laser stretch mark removal during a laser stretch mark removal procedure, a beam of light removes thin layers of skin around the stretch marks. The excimer laser is uniquely effective for this procedure. Surgical stretch mark removal surgical stretch mark removal is the only effective option for the complete and permanent elimination of stretch marks. Other stretch mark removal treatments cosmetic dermatologists offer a variety of non-surgical alternatives for treating stretch marks. Popular and effective options include chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and blue light therapy. These are good options for patients who want to avoid surgery, home remedies stretch marks can make you feel self-conscious and uncomfortable about your appearance. Fortunately, there are several natural ways to reduce the appearance of stretch marks. 1. Castor oil castor oil, which is used in the treatment of a number of skin problems such as wrinkles, age spots, moles, dark spots, fine lines and pimples, can also be used to get rid of stretch marks. For treatment consult privately.

She can not get pregnant if her pipe or tubes are closed. If hsg test was done to find out if tubes were closed or not, it is not confirm test. She should undergo laparoscopy done to find out. But if she had become pregnant and you r sure about it, then she does not need any investigation to test tubes or pipe. She will get pregnant again.

Hi lybrate-user, there are 15-20% chances of conception in one cycle. However if you are trying for one year & not getting pregnancy, consult your nearby gynecologist for local examination & get investigated for tsh, prolactin & tubal patency. Your husband should also get investigated for husband semen analysis. Take care.

Too Much or Too Little - How Much Should You Indulge In It?

MD, MBBS
Sexologist, Kolkata
Too Much or Too Little - How Much Should You Indulge In It?

Indulging in intercourse daily is a healthy option for couples as it comes with a variety of benefits:

  1. Reduces stress
  2. Promotes longevity
  3. Leads to an increase in blood circulation
  4. Helps one sleep better
  5. Improves your fitness level

Indulging in intercourse daily certainly does come with benefits but overdoing the routine can result in various side-effects. According to most medical practitioners and sex-perts, doing it twice a day is considered optimum.

What happens if you overdo it on a regular basis?
However, stretching it up to thrice is acceptable, but going beyond that number can prove to be harmful as sex is a physical activity which puts strain on your body and genitals. The penis has a resting period, which if not adhered to, can lead to extreme stress on the organ and erectile dysfunction in the long-run. Other than distress in the penis, having sex too many times can also cause soreness in the penis and painful muscle contractions during an orgasm. In women, over-indulging in intercourse can cause tears in the vaginal area which can prove to be very painful while urinating or foreplay the next time. Women are also prone to contracting urinary tract infectionif they indulge in this process too many times. This is the reason why clearing the bladder for women is recommended.

The final verdict
However, sex-perts also believe that is very important for couples to embrace and indulge in this process as physical intimacy and satisfaction plays an important role in sustaining the relationship for a long time. Not having sex for extended periods of time might result in depression and your partner might start looking for other options. Thus, having sex once or twice a day is completely normal and encouraged but for a healthy and sustainable sex life, you should refrain from doing it too many times a day. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a sexologist.

What Are the Predictors for Pregnancy Induced Hypertension?

What Are the Predictors for Pregnancy Induced Hypertension?

Pregnancy is a thrilling time period for every woman, but at times things can go wrong and turn out to be scary due to certain complications. Pregnancy Induced Hypertension or Preeclampsia is a high blood pressure disorder of pregnancy. It is a major problem that occurs in women during their pregnancy and it has an effect on nearly 7% of the first-time mothers. The Pregnancy Induced Hypertension causes serious complications and in severe cases, it is dangerous for the baby as well as the mother. Pregnant women suffering from this condition are induced with labor early if they suffer from PIH or pregnancy 
Induced hypertension.

The Three levels of Pregnancy Induced Hypertension include:

  1. Only high blood pressure
  2. High blood pressure and protein in urine or swelling
  3. High blood pressure, protein in urine, convulsions and swelling

Common Symptoms of Preeclampsia:
The main symptoms that occur are:

  1. Blurred vision
  2. Upper right Abdominal Pain
  3. Headaches
  4. Swelling in the Face and Hands
  5. Infrequent Urination
  6. Rapid weight gain

Physiologic Tests:

The methods that are used to test Pregnancy Induced Hypertension

  1. Cold pressor test
  2. Rollover  test
  3. Isometric handgrip tests

These tests are carried out in pregnant women during their 29th to 31st week of pregnancy. These Pregnancy Induced Hypertension tests when proved positive and the diastolic rise in pressure was found to be about 20 mmHg.  The pressure observed was not more than 140/90 in women in any case of two consecutive occasions. These results specify that not any of these trouble free physiologic tests are of any application as a predictor of Pregnancy Induced Hypertension.

Cure: 
Preeclampsia occurs in women with a history of hypertension in parents, high proteinuria, BMI or Body Mass Index and family history of diabetes. It is by using a partial set of maternal characteristics that pregnant women are at an increased risk of developing Pregnancy Induced Hypertension.

The cure for this condition-preeclampsia is delivery and in many cases, doctors insist their patients go for a caesarian section. Sometimes the Doctors suggest for an early delivery as it includes an additional threat of loss to the mother to be due to prematurity. 

The inflammatory disorder is characterized by anti-angiogenic protein in high levels and soluble forms like tyrosine kinase in the maternal circulation. It is very important that pregnant women adopt the process of self evaluation to safeguard from risk of high blood pressure. They must monitor their blood pressure from time to time as it would empower them to care for their pregnancy and reduce the chances of complications during pregnancy.

I am a male and had sex with a woman. While having it my inner thigh was cut by her very sharp leg nails and it was bleeding. Do I need to take PEP?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist,
NO. PEP is needed when there is unprotected sexual contact or contact of infected body fluids with other persons open wounds, or mucosa. If there has been NO contact of her blood, or her vaginal fluids with the wound, there is nothing to worry If there has been such contact, take PEP.

If there is no complication in pregnancy then only you can do sex. but we always advice against this as at this part of pregnancy there are chances of preterm delivery or infection.

Is it necessary to take double marker test during pregnancy if not scan, will everything be fine?
It depends on age and other risk factors like family history and diabetes. No test is absolutely necessary, it's your choice only. But normal nt is often reassuring, you can do anomaly scan at 18-20 weeks.
