Hello, Thanks for the query. Pain in breast can be due to many reasons, like inflammation, infection, trauma or some other cause. It can only be assessed by examining in detail. It is difficult to give a clear answer why the pain present. My suggestion is please get it properly examined by a gynecologist and also a surgeon, that will help in identifying the cause. Thanks.

You are suffering from frigidity. This happens due to reduced blood supply to vagina. We need ayurvedic tablets to treat it. This medicine increases blood supply to vagina so that night life becomes enjoyable. Just let me know your age, height, weight and details of menstrual cycle. This medicine is free from side effects. This information is important so as to arrive at perfect prescription.

Hello lybrate user- Oligo mennhorea or less flow during menses might occur due to two causes, first if you have developed anaemia (low hb count) or you have hormonal disturbances due to PCOD/THYROID disease. Avoid spicy diet and increase dairy products in your meals. Keep your bowel clean , eat figs and raisins daily. Massage your abdomen daily with castor oil. Start consuming ayurvedic medicines like Dashmularistha etc.

HI, 25th October being the 5th day of her menstrual cycle, there is no chance of pregnancy. 8th - 16th day of the menstrual cycle is the unsafe period.

Dear user. ABORTIONS can be performed as early as an intra-uterine pregnancy can be identified by ultrasound, which is usually about 3-4 weeks after your Last Menstrual Period (LMP). In the first trimester, two options are available: Aspiration is done by a physician in the clinic or the Abortion Pill which you take at home. Do not take any decisions before consulting your gynecologist. Take care.

I am suffering from endometriosis cyst size 4cm on both ovary. Had laproscopy on 2013 but it again reoccur. I had my periods on 16 april 2015, on 26 and 27 april I had intercourse with my husband. On the next day there is brown discharge I saw on pantyline as well as on wiping with tissue but no bleeding. On 29 april I had backache and lower abdomen cramps. I m also weeing little frequently compare to other days. Can it possible that I have conceived.

Most likely it is not pregnancy. You said you had your periods on 16th april. You also mentioned that endometriosis has recurred. Have you undergone ultrasound? your back ache and lower abdominal pain may be suggestive of endometriosis. Yes, it can recurr if you have not taken hormone like gnrh analogue following your surgery. Consult gynaecologist to exclude the probability. Do not ignore it as it may cause problem for conception.

Shingles is triggered by the varicella-zoster virus (also known as VZV) — the same virus that is responsible for chickenpox. Even after chickenpox has got treated, the virus sometimes does not leave the body, lying inert in tissues in the region of the spinal chord and brain. It can then go on to cause shingles — a disease with very different symptoms — usually several years after the initial infection. The homeopathic medicines that I have found to be ideal for cases of shingles are Ranunculus Bulbous, Croton Tiglium, Asterias Rubens, Cedron, Dolichos, and Dulcamara. I feel that Ranunculus Bulbous works best in cases of herpetic eruptions that cause a lot of itching. Croton Tiglium is more suited for patients suffering from the stinging and smarting pain of eruptions. I prefer to prescribe Cedron in cases of shingles with radiating pain. Dolichos and Dulcamara are also homeopathic remedies that are effective for herpes zoster. Since these homeopathic medicines are derived from natural substances, they are safe along with being successful and being free from side-effects. For individualistic medicine selection you can visit me online. You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance and permanent cure without any side effects.

How PCOS Triggers Infertility In Women

Gynaecologist, Ghaziabad
How PCOS Triggers Infertility In Women

PCOS is a disorder characterized by enlarged ovaries and the formation of tiny cysts on the outer sides of the ovaries. Polycystic Ovary is a hormonal condition that stimulates surplus production of androgen in women. Androgen being a “male hormone,” causes development of muscle mass and hair in men, and it has similar effects on women as well when present in high amount. They trigger acne and excessive growth of body hair in women accompanied by irregular or lack of ovulation in the form of absent or erratic menstrual cycle. Hence, owing to troubles in ovulation (discharge of ovules from the ovaries), one may experience difficulties in getting pregnant.

Many women suffering from PCOS are unaffected by the influence of the hormone ‘insulin’, which indicates, that it requires a larger amount of insulin to sustain a normal blood sugar level. High levels of insulin as a result of insulin resistance, in turn drastically boosts androgen production.

Symptoms of PCOS include:

  1. Irregular Menstrual Cycle. Women with PCOS may miss periods or have fewer periods (fewer than eight in a year). Or, their periods may come every 21 days or more often. Some women with PCOS stop having menstrual periods.

  2. Excessive hair. Excessive hair on the face, chin, or parts of the body where men usually have hair. This is called "hirsutism." Hirsutism affects up to 70% of women with PCOS.3

  3. Acne. Acne on the face, chest, and upper back

  4. Hair Loss. Thinning hair or hair loss on the scalp; male-pattern baldness

  5. Weight Gain. Weight gain or difficulty losing weight

  6. Skin Darkening. Darkening of skin, particularly along neck creases, in the groin, and underneath breasts

  7. Skin tags. Skin tags, which are small excess flaps of skin in the armpits or neck area

Treatment for PCOS:

There is apparently no procedure to cure PCOS and improve fertility but the treatment is tailored as per the symptoms of the condition:

  1. A lack of ovulation and menstrual cycles hinders the secretion of progesterone (a hormone preparing the uterus for pregnancy), thus hampering conception. In this case, the treatment is directed at maintaining a regular ovulation and menstrual cycle which can be fixed by consuming birth control pills. These pills comprise of both progestin and estrogen which aid to bring down androgen production.

  2. PCOS along with insulin resistance warrants the use of certain medications such as metformin which are prescribed to enhance insulin sensitivity. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Possible Causes of Heavy Menstrual Bleeding

MRCOG, MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology, DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology), MBBS
IVF Specialist, Delhi
Possible Causes of Heavy Menstrual Bleeding

Heavy menstrual bleeding, technically called menorrhagia, is one of the most common types of abnormal bleeding from the uterus. Menstrual bleeding is said to be heavy if there is so much blood that a tampon or pad remains soaked for several hours. 

Here are all the possible causes of heavy menstrual bleeding:

  1. Hormonal imbalance: Estrogen and progesterone levels are the primary control mechanism for periods. If the ovaries have a problem in functioning, hormonal imbalances may occur. Heavy menstrual bleeding is most common in females who are at the start of menopause. Puberty menorrhagia can occur in adolescents who are experiencing their first menstrual period. 
  2. Fibroids: Fibroids most commonly occur around the age when women can get pregnant. Uterine fibroids are non-cancerous growth on the uterus.
  3. Ectopic pregnancy: An ectopic pregnancy is when a fertilized egg stays in the fallopian tube, but does not reach the uterus.
  4. Blood thinners: These are medicines, which are usually anticoagulant or antiplatelet drugs.
  5. Problems with IUD: A non-hormonal intrauterine device is a T-shaped device used for birth control which is inserted into the uterus.
  6. Adenomyosis: This is a condition in which the muscular wall of the uterus also gets the lining of the uterus intermingled with it. However, this condition is rare and only happens in middle aged women with several children.
  7. PID: PID stands for Pelvic Inflammatory Disease and refers to any infection within the organs of the reproductive system.
  8. Cancer: Uterine, ovarian and cervical cancer are just some of the cancers, which may cause heavy menstrual bleeding.
  9. Other diseases: Liver, kidney and thyroid diseases are all included.

Curb the Midnight Snack Craving

Curb the Midnight Snack Craving

Midnight snack craving is basically a craving for food when you wake up in the middle of the night. Midnight cravings can lead to weight gain if you binge eat on a regular basis. It is important that you accept the situation and take steps to rectify it.

A majority of the foods that you consume are mostly empty calories such as cookies and sugar based food. If you don't control these cravings, then it may lead to tremendous weight gain. Here are a few tips to control your midnight snack craving -

  1. Eat your Dinner Properly: It is important that you eat a well-balanced dinner that consists of carbohydrates, protein and fats. If you don't eat a proper dinner, then the chances of eating later and subsequent binge eating go up drastically.
  2. Include Fiber: Add fiber to your diet as fiber helps you in feeling full. Eat fiber rich foods such as beans, lentils and broccoli which promote a feeling of satiety.
  3. Green Tea: Drink a cup of green tea after eating as it will help you sleep better.
  4. Stay Hydrated: Make sure that you are properly hydrated as it will prevent food cravings. Dehydration may also lead to other health complication such as skin problems.
  5. Consume Yoghurt: Consume portions of yoghurt as it contains probiotic bacteria that help in keeping your digestive system healthy. It also promotes a feeling of satiety as it contains protein.
  6. Plan an Activity: Don't immediately go to bed after dinner, instead go for a walk or play with your pet. Make sure that you spend some time after dinner prior to retiring for bed.
  7. Eat Healthy: If you do have cravings then go for healthy choices such as eating salads and fruits. Focus on foods such as cucumber, jackfruits and apples.
  8. Protein: Make sure you add protein to your diet as protein helps in muscle building. It also makes you fuller so that you eat less. Include foods such as eggs, chicken and fish to your diet.
  9. Exercise: Exercise on a regular basis. This increases the secretion of endorphins in your body which improve your wellbeing and promote happiness. It will help you sleep better and reduce your craving to eat unhealthy foods.
