Agar period har dafe ke jaise hi normal hai to pregnancy ka khatra nahi hai. Harek ladki aur stree ko iron vali chije jyada khana chahiye- hari sabjiya, gud vagare. Jarur pade to iron ki goli. Period ki vahase nahi magar aise hi achhi tabiyat ke liye protein, calcium or multivitamin bhi lena chahiye,

Infertility is not a disease, but a derangement- a condition where the couple is unable to conceive. The patient may have tried the help of ART=Assisted Reproductive Treatment, starting from simple medication to expensive and invasive procedures, IVF, ICSI, PGD etc. These can lead to anything from derangement in the normal physiology, to gross irreversible pathology, leading to iatrogenic complications. Numerous infertility cases have been treated successfully with homeopathic medicine and they have been reported on homeopathic medical journals. All these cases show how homeopathic treatment restored overall health and helped women, who were previously infertile conceive and have a healthy pregnancy and baby. Homeopathic remedies can help infertile couples achieve pregnancy even if there are physical conditions that can prevent the implantation of the embryo contributing to infertility or miscarriages . You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance and permanent cure without any side effects

These are side effects of ipill available routinely to help women in emergency but not to be abused as a routine medicine. Get pregnancy test done. Tons of hormones present in ipill are stored in liver and it will take few days for side effects to be over. Dear girl you are just 18, focus on studies, and if you have to take pills, take low dose oral tabs.

Why and When Should I Go for HPV Test?

Panchkula & Delhi
Mother and Child Care, Panchkula
Why and When Should I Go for HPV Test?

Persistent infection of the uterine cervix with high risk human papilloma virus (HPV) leads to development of cervical cancer. Infection with HPV is common especially in sexually active young women, most infections are transient and spontaneously clear within 1 to 2 years without causing cancer. These transient infections may cause temporary changes in cervical cells. If a cervical infection with high risk HPV type persists the cellular changes can eventually develop into more severe precancerous lesions. If pre cancerous lesions are not treated, they can progress to cancer. Thus, an HPV DNA test is recommended to identify the high risk types of HPV.

Why is Pap Smear done?

An HPV test is done to:

Check for high-risk types of human papillomavirus (HPV) in women who had a Pap test that showed abnormal cervical cells called atypical squamous cells (ASCUS). An HPV test can help look for one or more high-risk types of HPV.
Check for HPV in women older than age 30 as part of screening for abnormal cervical cells.
Help check for abnormal cervical cells after treatment of a high-risk HPV infection.

When should one get screened for cervical cancer?

American Cancer Society does not recommend using HPV DNA test to screen for cervical cancer in females under 30. This is because females in their twenties who are sexually active are much more likely (than older females) to have a HPV infection that goes away on its own. For these young females, results of this test are not as significant and may be confusing.

For females age 30 and older, Pap & HPV co testing is less likely to miss an abnormality (i.e. lower false negative rate than pap testing alone. It also lengthens the screening interval to 5 years and still allows abnormalities to be detected in time to treat them.

Women of age >65 yrs who have had adequate screening history or those who have had total hysterectomy do not need any further screening.

HPV TEST

Is HPV test as safe and effective as Pap Smear?

The advantage of the HPV test is that the Pap test misses a fair number of carcinomas as it has a lower sensitivity. Studies have also shown that a negative HPV test is better at predicting that a woman will be free of lesions for the next three years than a negative Pap test.

And while the experience for the patient is the same for both tests, the HPV test requires less material from the cervix to detect an infection so there's less concern that a sample will be inadequate.

How is the HPV test performed?
Before an HPV test, do not douche, use tampons, or use vaginal medicines for at least 48 hours.
In the HPV test, a doctor takes a swab of cells from the cervix, just as for the Pap test. The cells are then analyzed in a laboratory. The genetic material (DNA) of the HPV virus is studied. This test can identify 13 or 14 of the high-risk HPV types associated with cervical cancer. HPV test results are generally available in 1 to 2 weeks.

You may have a small amount of vaginal bleeding or gray-green discharge after this test.

Mongolian spots are just hyperpigmented spots in newborns which may persist as birth marks. Isolated spots are not hereditary, nor related to any pregnancy disorder. Since you are unable to conceive for last 5 years, it is time you went for HSG test together with semen test of your partner.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist,
If you are pregnant and do not want the pregnancy, you may seek an abortion which can be done by gynecologist in a registered center. The medicines to cause abortion are not sold at medical stores. You have to approach the gynecologist to get them. There are two methods of abortion: medical method. In this method, a sonograohy is done to detect pregnancy, and medicines given to the lady, over 2 days. After this the lady experiences pain and bleeding from vagina which is heavier than the menses. This is due to the abortion process. Generally the bleeding lasts few days but it may last upto 15 days in some. 15 days after the pill intake, a repeat sonography is done to observe completion of abortion. If the abortion is done, the uterus will be empty. If the sonography shows retained products of pregnancy is not aborted, then patient will be counseled to go for surgical abortion. Surgical: here the gynecologist will cal you for a abortion after prior consultation and counseling. Patient is given anesthesia and the contents of the uterus are evacuated using special instruments. Usually the patient spends half a day in the hospital to do this abortion. Though only 10 minutes are usually required to do the abortion, the patient takes 4 hours to come out of anesthesia. The gynec is the best person who will guide you about which procedure is best for you.

How Ayurveda Helps Manage Chest Congestion?

How Ayurveda Helps Manage Chest Congestion?

Ayurveda is an ancient life science that originated in India. It recognises herbs as medicines and Yogic postures as well as lifestyle changes as the supporting factors in its medicinal field. It is called a life science because the basic mode of treatment is done by tweaking one's lifestyle in order to reach the root cause of the ailment, which will be cleared from one's life gradually. Congestion is recognised as the accumulation of too much mucus and fluid in your lungs and is usually born due to an imbalance of the Vata Dosha, as per Ayurveda. This congestion can happen in the nasal or respiratory passages.

Let us find out what else Ayurveda says about congestion:

  • Symptoms: The symptoms of congestion include a tickling sensation at the back of the throat as well as the nasal passages, depending on the exact area of the congestion. Also, severe headaches and wheezing along with laboured breathing and tightening of the chest can point at the presence of congestion. In very severe cases, the patient may also complain of blood discharge while coughing, high fever, rashes on the skin, neck stiffness and other such conditions. 
  • Causes: There are various causes of congestion. While infection, allergy and cold are some of the most common conditions that may cause congestion, it has also been seen that congestion may arise as a symptom of a more serious ailment. Asthma is one such respiratory ailment that causes swelling in the airways, which can give rise to congestion. Also, inflammation of the bronchial tube lining can cause this condition where a greenish discharge happens due to the viral nature of the condition. Pneumonia and tuberculosis are also ailments, which can cause severe and painful congestion. 
  • Remedies: As per Ayurveda, there are many remedies that can help in treating this condition. One can drink herbal tea all day as the anti-oxidants will help in flushing out all those toxins that are causing a painful build-up of mucus and fluids inside. Also, one can use essential oils like eucalyptus oil for inhalation, steaming and even massages. One must take care not to let this oil touch the hair as greying might happen. Yoga and aromatherapy can also be practiced so as to do away with congestion. Also, the patient can add a pinch of salt to a glass of warm water in order to do a saline water gargle which will eventually clear the air passages.

Taking care of one's diet is one of the most important parts of any treatment in Ayurveda. Ingesting warm liquids like milk and warm food can help in loosening and removing the mucus build up. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ayurveda.

Hi dear, To catch the accurate reason for your pain in ankle with pregnancy needs detailed history, your ankle examination, a few tests. I don't know your pregnancy duration, both ankle or single ankle and past medical history. In pregnancy Xrays are usually not done in early pregnancy and avoided in late pregnancy. I suggest you to take rest till your pain subsides. You can wear ankle support anklets etc. You should consider calcium and vitamin D supplements for your bone health. In pregnancy body demand for higher calcium intake. You can try cold pack application Walk carefully as Ankle Spains are not uncommon during pregnancy. You should visit Orthopaedic doctor. Wish you happy pregnancy. Thanks.

I always suffer from pain in periods. Wat should I do. I take medicins but I think thats not good.

BAMS
Ayurveda, Ambala
I always suffer from pain in periods. Wat should I do. I take medicins but I think thats not good.
* The reason of stomach pain during periods is due to contractions of uterus ( functioning of muscles of uterus ) . * Breast pain before periods is normal . It occurs due to change in hormonal level before periods . * Reason of vomiting during periods is due to blood loss and due to function of uterus muscles. Follow these methods for relief: * Put a warm water bottle on your lower abdomen ( area below the stomach ) firstly spread towel or any cloth then put the bottle on it. * Do massage with lukewarm mustard oil on lower abdomen area ( below the stomach ) and back daily . * Take 1/3 piece of ginger and 1/2 teaspoon of ajwain boil both these in one glass of water when 1/2 glass water remains then drink it . When you drink add one teaspoon of sugar in it. • Do not skip meal during periods . if you feel nausea and vomiting drink 2 teaspoon of Glucone D in one glass of water or drink a cup of tea . • Take rest properly and avoid heavy work during period days. Do not lift heavy material on periods days and before 7 days from periods coming date . • Do some exercises such as jogging or running and fast walking . Stop these before one week of periods coming date. • Eat healthy diet such as green leafy vegetables and fruits and drink a glass of milk daily this will make you healthier.
