Hi doctor. I am having pain on my left breast regularly. Is it due to increase in size or due to reason that I go fr washroom late in the morning though I feel to go there early but due to laziness I still lie on bed. So please suggest me.

First of all you need to confirm whether your wife is pregnant or not. Do a simple urine pregnancy test. If its positive, then there is more than 95% chance that she may be pregnant. In that case visit a gynecologist to decide the right medicine to terminate the unwanted pregnancy. If the pregnancy test is negative, you need not worry. Just wait another week or so for periods to begin.

WOMAN- LOVE YOURSELF

PGDD, RD, Bachelor of Home Science

WOMAN- LOVE YOURSELF

When we truly care for ourselves, it becomes possible to care far more profoundly about other people. The more alert and sensitive we are to our own needs, the more loving and generous we can be towards others. ~eda leshan

Most women have been taught since childhood to put their family's needs first. In fact, in our society, one of the main qualities of being feminine is being selfless. Women have not only become comfortable with looking into other family members needs but also perfected the art.

When women are asked to bring themselves back into the picture, it very often feels as if we are asking them to break some rule of womanhood or doing something forbidden. But think about it for a moment, if you do not take the time to nurture yourself and refresh your energy stores, how can you truly care for others?

You wouldn't send your child off to school hungry or send your husband off to office without his lunch tiffin. Yet you are continually pushing yourself past the breaking point and ignoring the fact that there will be negative effects due to the continual denial of your body's needs. Think back to the last time you had a disturbance free breakfast or a relaxed lunch or dinner with your family. The reality is, you have to come first- at least some of the times. This may seem an uncomfortable thought, but think about it this way: only if you can take care of your health, can you take care of others.

Taking care of your health and wellbeing is an essential part of creating a healthy life that you can love. When you make yourself a part of your family equation, you create a healthy balance in your family's health.

Some tips for you to relearn how to take care of your health:

 

  •  don't start your day on an empty stomach. At least, have a fruit or a cup of milk within 15 minutes of getting up in the morning. You need the energy to make the breakfast for your family and yourself.
  •  avoid long gaps in between your main meals. Carry some healthy mini snack with you always in case you are working out of home or are in office.
  •  avoid finishing your child's left over meals. Over eating like this will not help anyone.
  •  avoid always being the one to eat the leftover meals. Try to learn to cook a moderate amount so that there is not food left over for the next day.
  •  try and make a habit of drinking water regularly.
  •  try to prepare a dish you love at least once a fortnight. It's not always about what your husband or child love to eat. Treat yourself too with the foods you have always eaten as a child.
  •  eating your meals before at a certain time before your husband does is not a crime. Or at least, eat your meals with your family and not alone after everyone else has finished their meal.
  •  try and keep regular sleep and exercise timings.
  •  learn to say 'no' when you can't.
  •  always ask for help when you need it.
  •  you are a wife or a mom, not a superwomen or supermom. Learn to be realistic with your expectations of yourself.
  •  love your body the way it is and don't indulge in mindless 'crash diets'.
  •  practice and you won't have to preach. Remember your child will learn by observation so if you follow healthy habits your child will do the same as an adult.
  •  don't feel guilty about being compassionate and kind to yourself.


Remember health is a relationship between you and your body. Nurture this relationship.

Ask her to take a I pill immediately. Do urine pregnancy test if she misses her period. Its always better to use protection.

If you are sexually active, you must get a pregnancy test done. Sometimes, because of hormonal disturbances, stress, environmental changes, periods may get delayed but if it has become a routine then it needs to be evaluated.

This is common at this age. If she is having no problem, then just ignore it. It will resolve by itself without need of any drugs (mostly within 3 months)

Your developing baby is protected by the amniotic fluid in your uterus, as well as the strong muscles of the uterus itself. Sexual activity won't affect your baby. So it is completely safe to sex during pregnancy. But during first trimester sometimes there is risk of miscarriage because of intercourse and excessive body movement so try to avoid sex during first trimester.

How to control anger?

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
How to control anger?
Although the senses require a certain amount of satisfaction, unless regulated they become like wild horses, forcing one to obey their whims.

Craving the objects of their satisfaction, the senses take control of the mind and intelligence, leading to frustration and anger when their impossible demands go unmet.

From this anger, delusion arises, and from delusion, bewilderment of memory. When memory is bewildered, human intelligence is lost, leaving one in a hell of irrational behavior.

As fever is a symptom of some disease in the body, anger is a symptom of ongoing material hankerings.

Just as treating fever alone will not cure the disease, treating anger without understanding it to be a symptom of lust will not extinguish the unwanted behavior.

To conquer anger, we must first ask how we shall conquer lust.
