After pregnancy is safe to take bestova 100 mg capsule, it has any side affect to baby growth or pregnancy.
It is taken to avoid accidental pregnancy, but it has got no role if you are already pregnant, to my opinion it is better to avoid these kind of medicines.

My friend Jyoti (21) is suffering from menstrual pain badly since her first period when she was 15. Her periods are normal in cycle and bleeding. Can it be eliminated?

Some pain, cramping, and discomfort during menstrual periods is normal. The medical term for painful menstruation is dysmenorrhea. Primary dysmenorrhea occurs in women who experience pain just before and during menstruation, but who are otherwise healthy. Women who have had normal periods that later become painful may have secondary dysmenorrhea. This condition is usually accompanied by a problem affecting the uterus or other pelvic organs. Home treatment= using a heating pad on your pelvic area or back massaging the abdomen taking a warm bath regular physical exercise eating light, nutritious meals practicing relaxation techniques or yoga taking vitamin b-6, vitamin b-1, vitamin e, omega-3 fatty acids, calcium, and magnesium supplements while reducing your intake of salt, alcohol, caffeine, and sugar to prevent bloating raising your legs or lying with your knees bent. If home treatment is not successful in relieving your menstrual pain then constitutional homeopathic treatment will give best result without side effects.

Post-Menopausal Bleeding

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Bangalore
Post-Menopausal Bleeding

Postmenopausal bleeding
Post menopausal bleeding is vaginal bleeding that happens at least 12 months after your periods have stopped.
About 4 % of women suffer with the above problem.It is not normal to bleed after menopause and it has to be investigated.

Causes of post menopausal bleeding
Most common cause of post menopausal bleeding is atrophic vaginitis and atrophic endometritis.After menopause due to decrease in the level of harmones in the body there can be thinning and inflammation of the inner lining of the uterus.
Other causes of post menopausal bleeding are 
polyps they refer to the extra growths of the inner lining of the uterus as well as the neck of the uterus(cervix).
PMB can also be because of thickening of the inner lining of the uterus, also called as hyperplasia.it can be because of extraneous harmones or obesity.
Less than 10% of the woman who suffer from PMB may have cancer of endometrium ,cervix and vagina.

Diagnosis
1)Pelvic examination
your doctor will do an internal examination to examine the cervix and do a papsmear if it is due.
2)USG scan is done to note down the size of uterus and the thickness of the endometrium.based on these reports the doctor might decide about the further tests.
3)Endometrial biopsy a small tube will be inserted into the uterus and cells are collected and sent to lab to note if there is any thing abnormal .This is an office procedure.and ususlly does not require admission
4)Hysteroscopy it is a procedure where a small camera is put inside the uterus and a targetted biopsy taken from the suspicious area.

Treatment
The treatment of PMB depends upon the cause.
If endometrial atrophy was the reason it can usually be traeated with estrogen creams and pessaries
Cervical and endometrial polyps require surgery to remove them.Hysteroscopic polypectomy refers to the surgery where in the polyp is removed under the guidance of the camera which is inserted into the uterus.
Endometrial hyperplasia can be treated with progesterone tablets or progesterone impregnated intrauterine devices.
Endometrial cancer will have to be treated with surgery for the removal of uterus and ovaries.Some patients may require chemo or radiotherapy as the stage of cancer may demand.
All in all postmenopusal bleeding doesnt mean the patient has cancer 90 percent of the time it is because of the benign causes but it should not be ignored but investigated.Its betTer to be safe than sorry.

I'm a single working girl living in Delhi from last 4 years. My breasts are lumpy in nature. Presently I'm on medication, taking treatment of hormonal imbalance. It's been (just) 3 months of the treatment. I've had (sometimes) irregular cycle of my periods, & during those days pain is almost excruciating. From last 6 months I've had a strange problem of having pain in my breasts. Upon (even little) stimulation, I can feel the tingling sensation & afterwards pain. Now lumps are more clear, so clear that I can feel them now & upon touching them pressingly, it hurts, also in one breast (my right one) I feel more pain. Earlier it wasn't like this. I've done the relevant tests done & the reports of those tests (Serum Prolactin, USG breasts & abdomen, TSH, Urine culture & Blood culture) are okay (if not normal) so to speak. Doctor has said it's the issue of hormonal imbalance which is causing this problem of pain in the breasts, lumpiness of the breast & (sometimes) irregular periods. But I'm afraid. I feel fearful of some major physical ailments which might be causing such conditions. I'm so afraid that these days I'm continuously thinking about it. I want to know what can be cause of - pain in the breasts, lumpiness of the breast & (sometimes) irregular periods. & how it can be taken care of? Please provide correct and relevant information.

Respected lybrate-user hi sorry to hear about your problem. I think this is in relation to your stress & anxiety that is leading to hormonal imbalances. I would strongly suggest to regularise your working hours have enough rest & do concentration through yoga 30 min daily along with your medications that will definately help u. Any further queries & problems welcome to consult anytime dear thanks regards.

It cannot be used as a regular contraceptive method and is quite unhealthy if taken more than twice a month. 3. The pill is to be taken soon after unprotected sex. It should be taken preferably within 24 hours and before 72 hours or else the pill may turn useless.

Your daily habits or age may be the root of your knee problems. Some common home care techniques for knee pain that control inflammation and help to break the inflammatory cycle are protection, rest, ice, compression, and elevation, glucosamine supplement has also may help, I can prescribe a detailed treatment plan.

Hydronephrosis can be due to a pathology but the pressure of the uterus can also do the same if there are no other issues better get it looked at and treated after delivery.

Before ovulation occurs, the average diameter of the dominant follicle is 22 to 24 mm (range 18-36 mm). It is the only marker that can predict ovulation with ease. * In stimulated cycle (hormonal treatment), generally, all or most of the antral follicles grow. The growth rate will be different for each of them. YOu can conceive.

There r less chances of pregnancy. If the periods r regular then from day one of menstrual cycle up to 12th day and from day 17th onwards till the starting of the menses is the safe period.

Hi lybrate-user I suggest you should wait for next period and if that is also not normal then you need to go for some investigations for thyroid and usg abdomen. Right now you should wait as it might happen due to some temporary reasons.

My cousin is 24 years old unmarried girl. She is pregnant of 4-5 weeks. Our family want to abort because of obvious reasons. My question is 1. Is abortion safe? 2. Is that painful and critical? 3. How much time it takes? 4. What is the cost involved in it? Please suggest some way. Thanks.

Diploma in Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
get medical abortion done. kit costs 600/- and 5 tablets are to be taken during 3 days-follow the instructions on pack. pain is a bit more that period pain but lots less than delivery pain. go to doctor only if bleeding does not stop after 10 days. intervention will be needed to take out products retained.

either u do not wash the area properly or u may be using it internally so it is hurting ur mucosa. if it is allergy then whole area will become red and painful.so try to wash only surface from outside and donot go inside or flush water inside.

Do you want to say swelling on neck. If thyroid profile is normal it's good but if swelling is causing difficulty while eating, then take tablet brufamol 3 times daily for 3 days, see a surgeon because any such obstruction needs to be taken care of.

Hi, Less flow may be because of harmonal imbalance. White discharge may be due to vaginitis or cervicitis. Pregnancy can be thought of only when you miss your periods. Take tab. Lukol 1 tab 3 times a day and M2 Tone syrup 2 tsf twice daily mixed with equal quantity of water, for white discharge.
