Any bleeding more than spotting is considered as menses and brown bleeding is also menses if pregnancy is ruled out. As you r overweight and irregular scanty menses you r likely to be suffering from pcod which can be diagnosed with ultrasound and fsh and lh blood tests.

Bicornuate uterus means that developmentally you have two parts of upper part of uterus. It is not per se a problem to get pregnant. Pcod can delay a few things as the follicular growth and some other factors are not always according to plan. You are young, give yourself some time before you consult. If the periods are very irregular, consult for some basic tratment options.

Hi i Am a boy 23 year old. When I taking sex with my partner suddenly small quantity of spem is coming (i don't know correctly it is a spem) after sometimes spem comes and. But I don't know what is coming first so we get confused. Is there any chance for pregnant.

Pre Seminal fluid is the clear, colorless, viscous fluid that is emitted from the urethra of the penis during sexual arousal. It is similar in composition to semen but has some significant chemical differences. There have been several small-scale studies that conclude no sperm is present, and thus, pre-ejaculate is ineffectual at causing pregnancy.

Good morning Doctor, I am 4 month 2 weeks pregnant and I'm having little bleeding/ spotting problem from 2nd month onwards very frequently. Doctor said that my placenta distance is 2.2 only but once baby start growing it will pulled up. Hence we don't have sex till this date however my friend is telling me that having sex during pregnancy will help normal delivery. I request you to advise whether it's good to have sex and sperm can be release inside or not. Also till which month is safe to have intercourse please advise. This is my first pregnancy.

If everything is normal than I normally advice couple can have sex after 3rd month and before 9th month started, if everything is normal. In your case if you have intermittent bleeding episodes during 4 months than I advice not to have sex in this pregnancy at all. Bleeding can be dangerous for baby and can abort your pregnancy at any stage. You have to categories every pregnancy, even the 2nd pregnancy of same individual may have to follow different precautions. So if you had bleeding than don't have sex in this pregnancy. Intercourse can starts uterine contractions and abortion or delivery process but it is not compulsory that you will end up in normal delivery. There are number of factors which also responsible for normal delivery to happen. But in case it starts uterine contraction before full term it can end up in abortion. So understand your situation and than decide whome to believe. Hopefully you get your answer.

Pain and Sleep: A Disastrous Cycle

Fellowship in Interventional Pain management , Diploma in Anesthesia, DA, MBBS
Pain Management Specialist, Jaipur
Pain and Sleep: A Disastrous Cycle

Pain and sleep together contribute to be a dreadful cycle. Pain and sleep are two aspects, which go hand in hand. The effect of the pain coupled with stress and tension causes detrimental effects on sleep.

  • Relationship between the two: Studies show that more than half the percentage of people with chronic pain disorders suffer from sleep problems and more than half of insomniac patients suffer from pain. Pain affects the duration of sleep and pain inflicted people have poor sleep hours. Pain also affects the quality of sleep. While trying to fall asleep, environmental factors such as light, external noise and temperature affect a pain inflicted person more. People suffering from pain have much less control on sleep. They worry about their disrupted sleep cycle, which causes more stress.
  • Medications: Medications which treat chronic pain sometimes are responsible for causing sleep disturbances because of the presence of certain chemicals. It is perceived that pain medications would reduce pain and sleep would improve. However, this is not the case and people who take medicines for pain treatment, suffer from disrupted sleep. Sleeping pills do not work effectively in people suffering from pain.
  • Effects: Lack of sleep affects your quality of life to a great extent, especially when it is due to pain. Lack of sleep combined with pain will affect any kind of work you undergo and your performance will be dull and sloppy. There will be a degradation in the person's mood, activities and even relationships are affected.
  • The disastrous cycle: Sleep and pain create a dangerous cycle. The relationship between sleeplessness and pain is reciprocal in the sense that pain affects and causes difficulty in sleeping, in a continuous pattern and poor sleep further enhances or affects pain. Pain causes disturbances in sleep, gives rise to stress and fatigue and leads to even more pain, which again affects sleep. This process keeps on occurring like a cycle.
  • Treatment: For treatment of sleeping disorders due to pain, both the aspects should be addressed. A multidisciplinary approach has to be taken. You can try interventional treatment procedures, which will help you to decrease your level of pain. Along with this, you should consult a behavioral health specialist to get the best remedies on coping with stress. Working these two out will result in decreased pain, decreased stress and your normal sleep will be revitalized.

Pain and sleep together work like a cycle. Excess pain leads to reduced sleep, which causes more pain in return and the cycle carries on. Proper remedies should be taken to get rid of the pain, which would revive good sleep.

Men's Sexual Problems

Men's sexual problems:
Around 4 in 10 men experience sex problems.
Men's sexual problems can happen at any time of life, but become more common with age.

Most sexual problems can be treated - so seek medical advice if you have concerns.

Men's sex problems include:

1. Erectile dysfunction - sometimes called impotence - is a problem getting and keeping an erection for sex.
2. Premature ejaculation, this is coming sooner than he'd like to during sex.
3. Inhibited ejaculation, retarded ejaculation, when the man is slow to ejaculate.
4. Retrograde ejaculation, where the ejaculation goes into the bladder instead of out of the penis.
5. Less interest in sex, loss of sex drive or libido.

What causes men's sexual problems?

Men's sex problems may be due to:

1. Physical causes, including diabetes, heart disease and other long-term health conditions
2. Alcohol abuse
3. Drug abuse
4. Medication side-effects, including some antidepressants
5. Stress
6. Anxiety
7. Depression
8. Worries over sexual performance, unrealistic expectations about sexual performance
9. Relationship problems
10. Low testosterone
11. Past traumatic sexual experiences.

How are men's sex problems diagnosed?

A doctor will ask about symptoms, review a man's medical history and may carry out a physical examination.

A gp or sexual health clinic may be able to make a diagnosis - or a referral may be made to specialists for further assessments, tests or treatment.

Specialists who may help with men's sex problems include:

1. Urologists, who specialise in the urinary tract and reproductive system
2. Endocrinologists, who specialise in conditions affecting hormones
3. Neurologists, who specialise in the body's nerve networks
4. Sex therapists or counsellors
5. Mental health specialists.

What tests are used to diagnose men's sex problems?

Diagnostic tests for men's sex problems include:

  • Blood tests, to identify any hormone problems, such as low testosterone, and any undiagnosed medical problems, such as diabetes
  • Checking blood flow to the penis for any blockages or restrictions
  • Nerve checks, for any loss of sensation, such as complications of diabetes
  • Night-time penis rigidity tests, to check if natural erections that happen at night are stronger than a man may experience while awake, which may suggest psychological causes.

Preconception Care

DGO, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Preconception Care

Preconception care refers to the care that a woman should take before getting pregnant. This refers to all the procedures and measures to be taken by a woman before pregnancy for maintaining good health before giving birth. Good preconception care also ensures proper health of the to-be-born child. Seeking information about pregnancy is also a part of preconception care by which a woman can prepare herself better physically and emotionally before childbirth. Visiting doctors and health practitioners is a part of preconception care. The body is prepared for giving birth during preconception care.

Nutritional supplements during preconception care: 

Certain nutritional supplements are recommended for women during this stage. Folic acid is an important vitamin which enables healthy growth and development of the baby. Folic acid reduces birth defects like spina bifida.

Other healthy supplements which a woman may require during preconception care include iron, zinc and calcium. A healthy, balanced diet and drinking a lot of water are also important.

Blood Tests:

Visiting a doctor is necessary during the preconception care. You will require a detailed physical health checkup and required guidelines from a health expert. Recommended blood tests include full blood count, testing of ferritin levels and testing for rubella. Urine tests and blood pressure checkup are also vital. You can also take the package for Living Healthy - Woman.

Moreover, several measures and steps must be followed by a woman. They include the following:

  1. Having a proper diet with sufficient water intake along with nutritional supplements is very important.
  2. A woman during preconception care should quit smoking or reduce the amount of smoking profusely.
  3. Large amount of caffeine should be avoided. A woman should consume less caffeine containing products such as coffee, chocolates or soft drinks.
  4. Alcohol should be avoided strictly as it may reduce the chance of pregnancy.
  5. Medication without recommendation of the doctor should be avoided. A woman should not use any medicine without being prescribed by the doctor.
  6. Contact with any kind of chemical should be avoided and natural, environment-friendly cleaning products should be used.
  7. Overheating of the body should be avoided, and a woman during preconception care should keep away from spas and saunas.
  8. A regular exercise schedule must be taken up for health benefits regarding pregnancy. Lack of working out may give rise to various health problems in women before pregnancy.
  9. Any kind of stressful activity should be abstained from, and a woman during preconception care should not lift heavy objects, which cause strain.
  10. Relaxation techniques should be practiced by a woman to keep mentally healthy.

A woman during the preconception care period should follow all required guidelines given by a doctor. Avid care of the body should be taken to ensure a healthy childbirth. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a specilized gynaecologist and ask a free question.

Hi, I am male 29 years old My wife's water broke on 01/08/2016. We did scanning on 03/08/2016. The doctor told that labor will start soon. The water was blowing every day. We waited till 10/08/2016. A slight pain started in her back on 11/08/2016. We rushed to hospital. After 3 hours we had a still born baby. He was our first baby, a boy. We are very upset. The weight of the child was 3.5 kg. We want to know the reason of death of my baby.

THE AMNIOTIC FLUID PLAYS A DIFFERENT ROLE IN PREGNANCY. IT ABSORBS SHOCK, IT LUBRICATED THE BABY AND GETS THE EXCRETION OF THE BABY OUT. IF THE WATER HAS BROKEN WE USUALLY GIVE STERIODS AND THEN INDUCE LABOUR AFTER 48 HOURS. IF THE WATER HAS BROKEN IT MEANS THAT INFECTION IN GOING TO GO IN. ALSO WATER BROKE THAT MEANS THE BABY IS GOING TO SWALLOW ITS OWN EXCRETA. I DONT UNDERSTAND WHY WASNT YOUR LABOUR INDUCED OR WHY WERENT U SUGGESTED ABOUT CEASEREAN SECTION.
