My friend has a problem of continuous white discharge. What should be the solution to this problem?

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
Vaginal discharge is a whitish liquid that is produced in the uterus and is discharged by way of vagina. It is a normal process and it generally begins in a girl life when she is due to attain puberty or prior to menstruation. It is the nature’s way of keeping the vagina healthy and lubricated. Women experience vaginal discharge all through their lives though it reduces after they reach the menopausal stage. Normal vaginal discharge helps to keep the vagina clean and healthy. It does not have a bad odour or you can say that it has no smell at all and you may see the traces of discharge on your under garment. It is normal for vaginal discharge to increase under certain conditions like- A few days before menstruation During pregnancy During ovulation Hormonal treatment Sexual excitement Emotional stress.So if the discharge i irritating her due to it burning effect,pungent odour or any other problem regarding this discharge then conult me.

Dear lybrate-user Thanks for sending across the query. Usually in a cycle of 35 days the fertile period is from 12-20 days considering the day of the period to be the first day. You can use an ovulation kit to know the exact day of ovulation. It is readily available at the chemist shop. Any time is okay for the intercourse but the female should be in a lying position and should not move for atleast half hour after ejaculation.

Are Krimpson 35 and Benforce M are the perfect medicines for PCOs? I have suggested to take krimpson 35 for 6 months and Benforce M for 3 months. Should I take these medicines? Are these two safe and will it cure my pcos?

DGO, MD, MRCOG, CCST, Accredation in Colposcopy
Gynaecologist, Kolkata
Yes please take them. Pcos is never 100% curable as it is a genetically inherited condition. But these medicines will help in regularising your periods and other problems you might have like acne/pimples as well as reduce your tendency to developing glucose intolerance. Please read my health tip on pcos. You may find it useful.

Unwanted or ipill are not foolproof and regular methods of contraception. Please use a better contraception. They are very high doses of hormones and they mess up your monthly menstrual cycle like in your case. It is very common to get irregular bleeding like you have now. When was you'd proper period before 31st August and did you ha s sex before that also? Also do a urine pregnancy test after hone itself in any case. Wait for your cycle to come back to normal. Till the use Condoms and please don't take any medicine without asking a doctor.

Technology-Health!

Technology-Health!

After science v/s religion, it is technology v/s nature. Of course, advanced technology is a result of science.

Yes, science has truly given us many benefits. But, are these benefits a threat to our survival now?

In the recent two decades, hasn’t everything taken a drastic change?
Transformation has taken place from advanced technology to a totally new standard of living to every one’s priorities.

Earlier kids used to play outdoor games; today they play games on electronic devices. Due to which they miss the best way of exercising, face health problems like headache, hearing aid, slow mental growth etc. and the worst part is that they aren’t privileged enough to experience such fun.

Also, nowadays serials and cartoons that are shown on television are not only violent but also vulgar.

Not everything can be suitable for all the age groups. Watching adult stuff might divert the mind of children in an unexpected direction. They might probably act bossy which might be harmful for people around them.

Now, these electronic gadgets emit rays which could be dangerous for every person out there.
This transformation has actually done the worst thing possible. That is, it has completely taken us away from nature. It has actually ruined the peace of mind a person should actually have.

Why are our grandparents and parents still so fit to do almost everything and why does our generation have a comparatively lazy or laid back attitude?

Isn’t it because of this big time revolution!

Be it the concrete buildings, or the roads, for which so many rocks are being destroyed all of it has simply spoiled what we actually deserve to have.

Lines well said, “Don’t judge a book by its cover”

The brighter it seems, the darker it is.
It’s never too late to value the beauty of what we still have.

You want to regulate your periods. I advise you to do meditation for mental strength by doing slow and deep breathing relaxation exercises in the morning. Take proper balanced vegetarian diet. Take 8 to 10 glasses of warm water daily. Avoid non veg and eggs and fast food.

Hot packs are very effective

Hot packs are very effective
Hot packs are very effective as they dilate blood vessels and increase blood flow, delivering needed nutrients and oxygen to cells in the area being heated, aiding the removal of cell waste and promoting healing.

Do not worry. Have patience and implement certain changes in your life style. Start with mild exercise every day and increase the duration over the next few weeks. Eat only healthy food (homemade is preferable) and avoid all junk food or outside food and beverages. Have more natural food (fruits and vegetables) which will not only nourish your body but also help reduce your weight naturally. Drink enough water (8-10 glasses of water or more ). Sleep at the right time every day (7-8 hrs sleep is good for maintaining good metabolism and biorhythm ). You can add Homeopathy which is based on holistic approach towards health. You can contact me or chat online for a detailed consultation.

I am working woman. I have a 3-month old son. I will be starting work in a week. Until now, I am exclusively breastfeeding my child but will need to introduce formula feed when I start going to work. Please suggest the best formula for my baby.

Pediatrician, Pune
Breast milk is the best, there is no better alternative, if your work place is close by you can take a break every 3 - 4 hrs and feed the baby in between, if the work place has facilities to keep babies, that woul also be better, if these options are not available, you can express the breast milk before going to work, that can be stored in fridge and can be fed to the baby when you are away, expressing breast milk will you to continue secreting and forming more milk required for the baby atleast till 1 year of age, breast milk is the best for baby, second alternatives would be lactogen/ nan1

Cardiac Surgery: What Should You Expect?

DM - Cardiology -, MD - General Medicine - , MBBS, FSCAI, MHRS, FACC, FESC , Fellowship in Interventional Cardiology & EP, Interventional Cardiology & EP and Devices, Senior Specialist( Interventional Cardiology), Fellow of southeast Asian Interventional Cardiology Society, International Award of Excellence in Cardiology
Cardiologist, Delhi
Cardiac Surgery: What Should You Expect?

One of the crucial types of surgery is the heart surgery, which is commonly known as the bypass. It is a type of surgery in which the chest is cut, and surgery is done on valves, muscles, and heart arteries. As per the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, it is one of the most common types of surgeries, which is performed on adults. During this surgery, the prime focus is to remove the blockage from the heart so that fresh blood can easily flow into the heart. No doubt that this process is critical, but it is easily true that after the surgery you have to take extra care of yourself.

Talking of which, here are certain things that you can expect after the surgery.

  1. Moved To ICU: The moment, the surgery is done, you will be moved to the Intensive Care Unit where the person’s health conditions will be monitored, vital signs will be checked, and medical professional will frequently visit to make sure that the patient is just doing fine. Once the surgery is over, you may not wake up quickly, but you will continue to breathe through the breathing tube. About food, of course, you will not be allowed to take solid food, but there is an intravenous (IV) needle will be put in a blood vessel in your chest and arm from which you will be given fluids. 
  2. Recovery At Home: Once you are given the discharge, your focus should be to get recovered quickly. Recovery at home entirely depends on the heart problem for which the surgery was done. Of course, the doctor will give you necessary instructions with regards to healing incision, dealing with after effect is and understanding the signs of complications. Follow up the medicines and attend the appointments as advised to keep track of your health condition. You may face some after effects such as appetite loss, constipation and sleeping problem. If there is any complication, make sure you speak with a doctor about the same immediately.
  3. Ongoing Care Is Important Too: Once the surgery is over, as said, you will have to go for frequent checkup with your doctor. During these visits, your doctor will tell you to get blood, stress test and electrocardiogram done, which will assess the working condition of the heart. You might also be given few blood-thinning medicine and bring certain changes in lifestyle and medicine.

There are certain phases of recovery which will take time eventually. The first phase is the lengthy one that can last for around 6-8 weeks. Once you get a discharge from the hospital, you will be given instructions that you must follow with good care. This will pace up the healing process and make the process better. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Cardiologist.

85% Urban Indians Often Ignore These Health Areas

85% Urban Indians Often Ignore These Health Areas
4 Health Areas We Often Neglect

Good health is a big issue in our sedentary lifestyles and whenever a person thinks about getting back in shape, the key areas he/she focuses on is nutrition and exercise. However, there are a number of other areas which are deeply linked to our general well-being and these are often overlooked. Here are the four additional health areas which play an important role in keeping you fit and healthy:

1. Effective Stress Management
A majority of people believe that their daily exercise regime also simultaneously acts as their stress buster. However, exercise only stimulates the sympathetic nervous system of the brain. In order to elicit a response from the parasympathetic nervous system; you need to indulge in certain relaxing activities such as meditation, listening to music, yoga etc.

2. Healthy Sleep Pattern
Maintaining a healthy sleep pattern is a must, as sleep deprivation greatly alters your hormones and results in an increased caloric intake. It has been proven to alter the hormones ghrelin and leptin, which ultimately leads to obesity. Moreover, prolonged exposure to artificial light hinders the functioning of the scn (suprachiasmatic nucleus); the part of brain responsible for maintaining a 24-hour cycle for the hormones of your body.

3. Building Social Relationships
Meeting friends and family regularly, chatting with them and spending time with them is as important as exercising or having a proper diet. The release of oxytocin, an immunoregulatory hormone, has been linked to social interactions.

4. Adequate Dose of Vitamin D
Although it is well-known that vitamin d helps build immunity against certain diseases such as cancer, heart problems and osteoporosis; it has been found that it may also play an important role in controlling our dietary habits. Research has shown that vitamin d regulates your consumption of food by acting as an energy homeostatic hormone present in the hypothalamus.
