Due to pcod my skin going black suggest me what are the cream to use to get skin lightening.
These are the methods to treat black spots. Steam your face to open the pores, which in turn clear the skin, steam your face for a couple of minutes. Do yogasana daily. Use oil free face wash and drink 10 to12 glasses of water daily. Don't touch your face again and again because your fingers transfer bacteria to it and make it worse. Mix black pepper powder in some water to make paste and apply on face thrice a week. Take cucumber and papaya pulp. Mix it well and add 1tsf turmeric powder. Make a paste and apply it to face and leave it for 15 minutes. If you want to know more or any medicinal treatment then consult me. You can also avail my glow skin package for treatment. Be healthy.

Me and my fiancee have active sex life for quite some time and we don't use any protection, he is been doing withdrawal method and have been following tht very strictly. My periods are delayed by a week and haven't come yet. Am I pregnant? How can I be sure about this? We plan to we'd after 6 months and not prepared to start family at this stage kindly advise what shd I do. We mutually decided not to have baby now but don't want to disclose it to our families.

Withdrawal method is not an effective solution. Infact keeps you at almost same probability of getting pregnant. Buy urine pregnancy test kit easily available in the market. For future ref using ocp is a better solution. All the best. Tc.

4 Types Of Hypertension During Pregnancy

4 Types Of Hypertension During Pregnancy

Hypertension or high blood pressure is common in pregnant women, even in those who have no previous history of high blood pressure. This leads to complications in about 6% to 10% of all pregnancies around the world. High blood pressure may develop before or after conception and as such needs special medical attention.
Hypertension prevents sufficient flow of blood to the placenta and this inhibits the normal growth of the fetus. This could result in low birth weight of the child. However, if diagnosed in time and treated properly, hypertension does not affect the child's health too much. There are various types of hypertension during pregnancies, such as:
1. Gestational hypertension
This type of hypertension is developed about 20 weeks after conception. There is no abnormality in urine or any signs of other organ damage (as is common with hypertension during pregnancy) but the condition can worsen and complicate very quickly. Pregnant women below the age of 20 and above the age of 40 are often diagnosed with high levels of blood pressure. Women who have heart or kidney conditions before pregnancy and women carrying more than one child are also likely to develop gestational hypertension.
2. Chronic hypertension
Chronic hypertension is high blood pressure which develops around 20 weeks before conception and does not normalize within 12 weeks after childbirth. The patient may also have been suffering from high blood pressure for a long time but the complications appear only during pregnancy because high blood pressure rarely exhibits symptoms without an associated condition.
3. Chronic hypertension superimposed with Preeclampsia
Women who have hypertension before pregnancy may develop even higher blood pressure levels during pregnancy. This leads to several health disorders like frequent headaches, fatigue and depression. Sometimes, protein is found in the urine.
4. Preeclampsia
Preeclampsia is often a serious complication of gestational pregnancy and affects about 5% to 7% of all pregnancies globally. Gestational pregnancy does not always develop into preeclampsia but it needs to be diagnosed and treated in time to avoid the complication. Women who have conceived for the first time or have a history of hypertension in the family are at a greater risk of preeclampsia. The symptoms of the condition are throbbing headaches, blurred vision, nausea and vomiting, pain in the upper abdominal region and shortness of breath. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

I m suffering from black and brown discharge from my vagina since 3 to 4 months approximately. What can I do. What is the reason of it?

MBBS, MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, FMAS, DMAS

Hello, You need to get a per speculum exam by a gynecologist and get a high vaginal swab smear to rule out any infection. This if has been continuous then a hormonal profile especially to look for progesterone deficiency would have to be undertaken. Regards

Hello, a menstrual cycle of 23-35 days is considered normal so even if menses are late 5-7 days and if this has been since long then its normal in your case. Pregnancy should ideally be checked with urine pregnancy test after 8 days post missed periods.

A blood pregnancy test is very accurate. A urine pregnancy test less. A urine pregnancy test can show a negative result when you are pregnant and very rarely a positive result when you are not. Also blood and urine tests can be both negative despite a pregnancy if the test is done too early. Pregnancy tests, even over-the-counter ones, are very accurate. Generally, if you conceived more than 14 days ago, the pregnancy test will be positive. There is a small chance that the sperm lived inside you for a few days, and you conceived too recently for the test to pick up the low levels of hormone in your system. You can repeat the test. Most home pregnancy tests are highly accurate once you have missed your first period. Follow the instructions closely and use your first morning urine. It also helps for a more accurate method to collect the urine in a disposable paper cup and dip the test strip inside for the prescribed time vs holding the strip in the urine stream.

Tongue cleaning is as important as brushing and flossing. Use of a proper tongue scraper every morning will remove tongue plaque and freshen your breath.

Hi Ayushi, you should go for laser treatment for excessive hairs on body. PCOD is metabolic syndrome which can be kept under control with healthy lifestyle . You need have healthy diet like pulses, milk products, eggs, low carbohydrates diet, avoid oily spicy foods. Daily exercise will help you to regularise period pattern.

Dear user. I can understand. LEUCORRHOEA translates in modern medicine as a whitish or yellowish discharge of mucus from the vagina. Some of the most common causes of white vaginal discharge include: 1)Infections from bacteria, fungi or other parasites. 2). Injuries or trauma to the vagina, the womb or the cervix, which is very common during pregnancy. 3). Lack of cleanliness or poor hygienic measures. Discharge related with leucorrhoea (or other STDs like yeast infection, chlamydia and trichomoniasis) are generally foamy, greenish-white, foul-smelling and infectious. A proper diagnosis using vaginal swab is very important to diagnose the exact infection, before treatment can ensue. Please consult a gynecologist for clarification and then treatment. Take care.

If this is happened for the first time then it could be normal but if it keeps on happening again and again then you need to do your ultrasound of abdomen to check whether you have any Pathology in the uterus otherwise it might be due to imbalance in the hormone level which give rise to in between spotting.
