Chikungunya is just like any normal viral infection. It has no interference with your getting pregnant so you don't bother and go ahead. All the best.

Hello Lybrate user- Irregular menses might occur due to two causes, first if you have developed anaemia (low hb count) or you have experienced hormonal disturbances occur in PCOD (Poly cystic ovarian disease/Thyroid. Try this ayurvedic treatment- A) Tab Kuberaksha vati 1 tab twice daily. B) Tab Hyponid 1 tab thrice daily. C) Do Basti treatment by nearby ayurvedic doctor (it is a very effective treatment in ayurveda for irregular menses and PCOD). D) Maintain proper eating routine, avoid fast foods and spicy diet.

If treating obstetrician has not advised against sex you can have. Till 8 months complete you can have unless someone after examination advises against it. Even during 9 th month can have but only after permission from examining obstetrician

Causes of Soreness in Vulva and Abnormal Discharge in Adolescent Girls

MBBS, MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology

Causes of Soreness in Vulva and Abnormal Discharge in Adolescent Girls

Pruritus Vulvae is the most common cause of vulvar soreness and abnormal discharge in adolescent girls. The growing years are a transition phase where most body parts are undergoing changes to reach the adult stage. While some changes would be obvious externally, there are a lot of internal changes, which would not be very apparent. And for growing girls, especially the changes that they see in their private parts are worrisome, sometimes unpleasant and uncomfortable. About 50% of them would not even discuss these with someone to avoid embarrassment.

Some amount of vaginal discharge is normal and contains bacteria, which are essential for a normal genital health. It also provides lubrication and keeps the area clean. However, the amount, color, and type of discharge can vary and is a good indication of any underlying abnormal condition. Most genital tract issues manifest with a change in the vaginal discharge along with irritation or soreness.

In adolescent girls, the most common problem is pruritus vulvae, which is itching of the vulva region. It is a variant of contact dermatitis caused by irritation. In the growing years, the vulva is thin and delicate with a neutral pH. This makes it easily irritable, unlike in mature women, who also have the protection of pubic hair, thick skin, and labial fat pads. This irritation leads to the condition called pruritus vulvae.

Causes of soreness:
These are primarily non-infectious and infectious (genital).

Noninfectious causes:

  1. Poor hygiene leading to irritation, soreness and itching
  2. Contamination with urine or feces
  3. Mechanical irritation from itching, use of toilet paper, ill-fitting undergarments.
  4. Chemical irritation from soaps, detergents, shampoo, chlorinated water, etc.
  5. Foreign body such as toilet paper leading to vaginal discharge can cause vulval irritation
  6. Skin diseases like atopic dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, or psoriasis presents with vulvar symptoms too in the form of soreness and itching

Infectious causes:

  1. Sexually transmitted infections like trichomoniasis, gonorrhea and chlamydia.
  2. Viral infections like genital herpes and genital warts.
  3. Fungal infections such as Candida such as and tinea are rarely the cause of pruritus vulvae in prepubertal females.
  4. Worms like pinworms which move from the anus to the vagina, causing itching
  5. Bacteria like Shigella, Yersinia and E. coli can also lead to non-sexually transmitted infections and subsequent symptoms like soreness and discharge.

Prevention/Management:

  1. Awareness is the first step in prevention. The girl must be educated about the changes her body is going through and the reasons behind it.
  2. Hygiene habits, especially after urination or passing feces, should be enforced.
  3. Avoid undergarments that are tight fitting and can be irritating
  4. Avoid soaps/chemicals when cleaning the genital area
  5. Topical creams (emollients/hydrocortisone) are usually effective
  6. Infections would need a course of antibiotics

When the girl is complaining of soreness and itching, it is best to visit a doctor to get a thorough examination and manage accordingly. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hi. After 4th month of my first delivery for the first time I suffered from sever lower abdominal pain and body pain during periods. Can you suggest any pain killer for it.

DGO, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Bangalore
Post delivery when the menstrual cycles start, the cycles can be anovulatory in the beginning which can make the cycles long, heavy and sometimes painful. If the cycles continue to be the same way, consult a gynaecologist and get yourself treated.

All About Rectocele

MD-Gynaecologist & Obstetrician , MBBS

All About Rectocele

Also known as Posterior Prolapse, Rectocele involves weakening of the walls between vagina and rectum, thereby, causing the rectal wall to swell and protrude into the space of the vagina. This bulging is a common, but temporary problem that arises after childbirth. In severe cases, the swollen tissues may extend out of the vaginal opening and usually cause more discomfort than pain.

What are the most common causes for Rectocele?

  1. An upright posture places a lot of weight on the pelvic region, which is probably the most important cause for Rectocele or Posterior Prolapse.
  2. Constipation is also a very valid reason for Rectocele because it causes straining of the connective tissues that separate the vagina and the rectum.
  3. Constant heavy lifting and indiscriminate increase of body weight may also put a lot of pressure on the pelvic region that could ultimately lead to weakening of rectal and vaginal tissues.
  4. Weakening of vaginal passageway due to pregnancy and childbirth is also a common reason for Rectocele development.
  5. Chances of developing Posterior Prolapse increases with age.

Physiological problems posed due to Rectocele

  1. Passage of bowel becomes difficult and may sometimes require pressure on the vaginal bulge.
  2. The protrusion of tissue takes place from your vaginal opening, when you strain while passing bowel. This usually happens in people with constipation.
  3. This disorder may also induce a sensation that the bowel tract has not been fully emptied even after passing stool.
  4. Such vaginal bulging also causes difficulties and embarrassing concerns during sexual intercourse.

Medical recommendations and preventive measures to tackle Rectocele

  1. Home made remedies and exercise are usually effective. Performing exercises help re tighten the pelvic muscles and tissues, thus reversing the effects of Rectocele. Vaginal pessaries or rubber rings, inserted into the vagina, can also support loose tissues and keep them in place.
  2. Surgical procedures are hardly needed in most cases of Rectocele. But if the issue is chronic, you may opt for removing the protruding tissues by surgery or strengthen the boundary between vagina and rectum by a mesh patch. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.
