Uterus can have 3 positions, mid position / forward bending (anteverted) most common / backward bending (retoverted). There is 1 cm size fibroid in the wall of the uterus. You have not mentioned size of cyst in the left ovary, I presume it is small irregular, post ovulatory is not important. Endometrium is normal. Minimal fluid in pouch of duglas (pod) is normal. If your menses are regular then there is no cause for worry. The 1cm size fibroid needs to be observed once in a year to watch for any increase in size by ultrasound.

Hello- These kinds of symptoms are faced by most women in their early fifties due to menopausal changes in the body physiology. You can understand this by a simple example, as when a pipe is connected to a tap and later when you close the tap, the water output from the pipe decreases gradually and finally after dribbling it ceases completely. You can ease you condition by the help of some ayurvedic medicines.

Use the gel as minimum as possible. Some pain is common in pregnancy. But in severe pain, you have to take care of bp, liver function and acidity.

Dyspareunia Symptoms

M.D.MEDICINE , Diploma in Diabetology
Sexologist, Jaipur
Dyspareunia Symptoms

Dyspareunia is a phenomenon noticed in both males and females, but more frequently in females. It refers to recurring pain during or after sexual intercourse. Such kind of pain affects female genitalia usually the vagina, clitoris, or at times the depths of the pelvis. This pain is often accompanied by a burning, itching or throbbing sensation which can prove to be extremely discomforting if left unattended. Thankfully, a careful examination of symptoms leading to Dyspareunia and its early diagnosis can improve a person's sexual health. 

Indicators of this deep rooted problem

  1. Pain can occur during penetration in and around the vagina, urethra or the bladder.
  2. Pain can be a new occurrence after earlier instances of painless intercourse.
  3. It can be felt throughout intercourse in places, such as deep in the pelvis or even after intercourse.
  4. The intensity of the ache is sometimes sharp and at other times, it is as piercing as menstrual cramps.
  5. It need not necessarily be associated with intercourse; pain can be experienced during any kind of penetration. Thus, using a tampon or a moon cup can also result in soreness.
  6. Skin diseases can either be a symptom or a root cause leading to the problem. Skin problems, such as Psoriasis or Lichen Sclerosus should not be taken lightly. 
  7. Tightening of vaginal muscles at the beginning of intercourse may or may not be superficial pain. In most cases, it is identified as Vaginismus but it can also be a symptom of acute Dyspareunia. 

Ways to nip the pain in the bud

  1. While, usually, pain during sexual intercourse is a result of adolescence or a traumatic sexual history, it can also be the result of a physiological problem contracted at birth. However, treatment in any situation is necessary to enable smooth functioning of one's life. 
  2. Injectable corticosteroids might prove to be helpful.
  3. There are oral medications to remedy the problem; antibiotics and antifungal medicines.
  4. Increase in estrogen levels through the use of the drug Osphena helps in curing frailty of vaginal tissues.

Precautionary measures to be followed at home

  1. Taking a warm bath before intercourse can lead to betterment.
  2. It is best to avoid sex when in stress. Both partners should be relaxed to ensure a complete lack of pain.
  3. After sex pain can be relieved by applying an ice pack around the vulva.
  4. Urinating before sex can be helpful. It is also good to use water soluble lubricants for stimulation.

Pregnancy happens when a egg (ovum) released at ovulation get fertilized by a sperm. Having thyroid disorder can affect ovulation.hence do continue your thyroid medications but the thyroid function needs to be checked repeatedly to assess the right dose needed to keep it in normal levels. Meet a local gynec and get assessed for other causes of infertility like blocked tubes, sperm deficiency etc

By taking ipills ,you initiated for a withdrawal bleeding which happened on 17th Feb, which in turn has rescheduled your due date of periods from the usual time frame, hence you probably will have to wait for a few more days, post which if you don't get your periods you will have to take a Urine pregnancy test to confirm for pregnancy.in case it's there you have to take pills for termination of pregnancy, and if it is not there you will eventually have your periods so don't worry, there is nothing you can do at this stage.

Allergy after taking meat

BHMS
Homeopath, Raebareli
Allergy after taking meat
If you are allergic to meat, your body considers meat to be a physical threat. The first time you have this response, your immune system makes specific immunoglobulin e (ige) antibodies to fight the threat off. These antibodies attached to immune cells throughout your body.
After that, each time you eat meat, the allergen binds to the ige antibodies and causes the cells to release massive amounts of histamine and other chemicals to try to protect you.
Depending on the tissue in which these antibodies are released, these chemicals will cause you to have symptoms that can range from mild to severe. A severe allergic reaction can include anaphylaxis, a potentially life-threatening reaction that must be treated immediately.
A bite from the lone star tick can cause people to develop an allergy to red meat, including beef and pork. This specific allergy is related to a carbohydrate called alpha-gal and is best diagnosed with a blood test. Although reactions to foods typically occur immediately, in the instance of allergic reactions to alpha-gal, symptoms often take several hours to develop. Owing to the significant delay between eating red meat and the appearance of an allergic reaction, it can be a challenge to connect the culprit foods to symptoms.

May be uinary tract infection. Get check up for complete urine test, n then get t/t accordingly, some times, if its purely vaginal infection, then you both need to take t/t simultaneously. So better to see any gynaecologist.

Firstly are you sure that it was your ovulatory phase and not your menstrual date. If yes then bleeding after intercourse in ovulation phase before taking ipill is something to worry about, but not in terms of pregnancy as I do not think that you are pregnant.-----------------------------

Oral birth control pills are not a problem in future, she can take the tablet. But for fertility issues age is a factor, as with the advancing age the quality and quantity of eggs reduces which in turn causes difficulty in conceiving. Complications in/during pregnancy may develop in future. So we would advice you not to wait for too long like 3 years. Since both of your reports are fine for now so you can wait for a year or so.

Hi, if first one is the Caesarian it does not mean the next delivery also by caesarean. It can be normal also. Your obstetrician will decide in due course. After 37 weeks any time baby can deliver. The sex of the baby cannot be known before delivery. Please wait for the surprise.
