I had mastitis post delivery in one of my breast. Its been 3 years now but it pains sometimes. It's not severe though. Is it just hormonal.

MD-Ayurveda, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Sexologist, Haldwani
Hello- Mastitis is not properly cured and still there is some underlying infective growth which is causing pain. It will definitely increase and will be problematic. I recommend you to start consuming ayurvedic medicines to completely cure you sub clinical breast infection completely.

I din't had my periods last two month. Please can you subscribe me some medicine.

Menstrual irregularities can be caused by a variety of conditions, including pregnancy, hormonal imbalances, infections, malignancies, diseases, trauma, and certain medications. Polycystic ovarian syndrome also leads to irregular ovulation and an irregular menstrual cycle. Seeing a doctor in person really is the most important thing you can do to get your menstrual cycle regular again! And, the standard health advice always applies: to balance your hormones and regulate your menstrual cycle, get regular exercise (but don?t exercise excessively), eat a healthy diet, get the sleep your body needs, and deal with stress in healthy ways. And, if you?re taking prescription medication, find out if it affects your hormones (which affects your period).

I was 9 month 9 day pregnant but I lost my baby in my womb bcoz of bp high there will any kind of problem to have a 2nd baby.

Sexologist, Panchkula
There will be no problem in having another baby, but control your bp. For this, take proper balanced vegetarian diet. Take 8 to 10 glasses of water daily. Avoid garlic and red chilly at home and avoid non veg and eggs. Keep your weight normal as compared to your height. These will help in controlling bp.

Sir I am not sexual satisfy so my husband get angry please tell me what I do I am si tns.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You should both go to a counselor and then a sexologist to get some guidelines as to how to go about foreplay. Men do not like being told that they are not satisfying the woman, so his reaction can be understood but not supported. Make him feel less threatened before suggesting a counsloer for the help you require. Many times men tend to go for the kill with the physical part of sex and forget that women take a longer time to get aroused and need certain stimulation to ideally enjoy the complete experience of orgasmic peak. With some education both of you will stand to benefit and will enjoy your conjugal relationship wonderfully for a long time.

What should I do next? This is my 1st experience n m so much tensed please help me.

General Physician, Chandigarh
Contraceptive pills you have to take daily for a month cycle and not only one tab that's why you got pregnant now decide what you want to do and consult a gynaecologist and proceed accordingly.

7th day of my period that is 20 april. We made out. Without protection, he didn't ejaculate inside me though. I don't basically have any symptoms now. But in case if I'm pregnant how many days after making will I know I'm pregnant? And till how many months is medical abortion applicable?

MBBS, MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, FMAS, DMAS
Gynaecologist, Noida
Hello, the earliest you can confirm pregnancy is after 7 days post last intercourse with a blood serum beta hcg test, which if positive shall confirm pregnancy, though on 7th day of menses you were in your safe period, and pregnancy seems unlikely. Medical abortion can be safely undertaken till 7 weeks/49 days.

Olive Oil - Which One Are You Using?

Master in Food & Nutrition, B.Sc. - Home Science

Olive Oil - Which One Are You Using?

Today, olive oil is known as one of the healthiest oils for cooking food because of its low level of saturated fats. Olive oil is also said to be able to aid in weight loss, reduce cholesterol, lower the risk of cardiovascular diseases, slow down the ageing process and protect against certain types of cancer. However, not all types of olive oil are the same. Olive oil is extracted by crushing olives and is categorised on the basis of the type of pressing, acidity levels and extent of processing undergone.

Some of the common types of olive oil available are:

  1. Extra virgin olive oil: This refers to oil produced by the first ‘pressing’ of olives. This oil is extracted using only mechanical or other physical means and does not involve the use of heat or chemicals. The only processing is subjected to is washing, decanting, centrifuging and filtering. The maximum acidity level of this oil is 0.8%. Extra virgin olive oil has no added flavours or aroma and is said to have a superior taste.
  2. Virgin olive oil: This is the second grade of olive oil. It has slightly higher level of acidity than extra virgin olive oil. It may seem to have a slight flavour imperfection as compared to the earlier oil. This is most commonly used type of olive oil.
  3. Refined olive oil: Oil that is produced by subsequent pressings of the remaining olive flesh is known as refined olive oil. It has a lighter colour and is less viscous as compared to virgin olive oil. Unlike virgin olive oil, refined olive oil is bleached and deodorised. It may also be mixed with a little virgin olive oil. This type of oil has the same levels of monosaturated fat, but has very little antioxidants.
  4. Olive pomace oil: The crushed flesh and pits left over from the extraction of olive oil is known as pomace. This may further be used to extract oil known as pomace oil. Pomace oil is an inferior oil that may be mixed with olive oil to improve its taste and texture.
  5. Unfiltered olive oil: As the name suggests, the unfiltered olive oil contains bits of olive flesh. While this may enhance the flavour of the oil, it also causes a sediment to be formed at the bottom of the bottle. This sediment may become rancid over time and lower the shelf life of the oil. Unfiltered olive oil should ideally be used within 6 months of being bottled.

Apart from the above, there are a number of other types of olive oil such as early or late harvest olive oil, hand picked olive oil, single estate olive oil and flavoured oil. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.

Best exercises for routine life.

I have been diagnosed of a cervical fibroid in an ultrasound report. The report states as follows - There is evidence of well defined hypoechoic lesion measuring 38.3 mm × 26.8 mm seen in cervix. The lesion appeared to be connected with endometrium - s/o? Polyp? Cervical Fibroid. I am 32 years of age and married for 4 years and have been suffering excessively high bleeding with huge clots during my periods since last 2-3 years. My periodical cycle is normal and occurs within 25-28 days. However, because of the excessive bleeding I am suffering a lot. My hemoglobin has been extremely low all these years and in my latest report it is 7.2. This has been making me suffer a lot. I would like to know the various options that I may have including surgery, types of surgery and options other than surgery. I would want the fibroid to dissolve naturally, however I am still open to all options. I have never conceived till date and I also have thyroid and I am taking 100 mg of Thyronorm currently. Please advise. Thanks.

You need physical examination and counselling. Apply generous amount of Xylocaine jelly 2% 15 minutes prior to intercourse to reduce pain.
