I am 27 years old, and have pcos. I have had my first miscarriage at the age of 19, then could, t get pregnant until 2012. Luckily I got a little beautiful princess, now 4 years thanks God for that. After her I had miscarriage at 9-10 weeks, then got pregnant with my son (pergo baby) everything was going well until week 19, went for ultrasound and he was diagnosed with Hydrops. We went for second opinion all the chromosome results came negative. I missed at 27th week and had stillbirth 1st jan 2015, the autopsy report said he had some heart defects. It was very devastating to miss him. After that got pregnant with pergotime (clomid) at 10 week found out that it was blighted ovum, had medical abortion at 12 weeks. After this nothing happened, and we went for Ivf and got two embryos fertilized but hcg came negative. After all these heartbreaking attempts I became naturally pregnant in september. I and my dear husband were very happy that God has blessed us with an other child. This was a beautiful surprise as my older daughter, but in 12th week the baby had Cystic Hygroma 5 mm. We went for amino. All the chromosome, blood tests came negative. The doctors can't find any heart og other organ defects. I need to go through fertility treatments and get a second opinion. Is there any hope for me. I need help, kindly if you know any one who is expert and has worked with such cases I would like to talk to them. Kind Regards.

Hey folks ; I am 27 year old girl. And my question is that my boyfriend insist me for anal sex and oral sex. Due to which some time his sperm I take on my mouth. Although he is doing natural sex very well. Please. Tell. Me this anal. Sex and. Oral sex s dangerous and how should I take protection?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Anal sex can expose its participants to two principal dangers: infections due to the high number of infectious microorganisms not found elsewhere on the body, and physical damage to the anus and rectum due to their fragility. Risk of injury to the woman is significantly higher because of the durability of the vaginal tissues compared to the anal tissues. Cunnilingus or oral sex is safe kind of sex as compared to vaginal or anal sex.

During pregnancy the size of vagina is increase or not? And which conditions is responsible for seizure?

DGO, MD, MRCOG, CCST, Accredation in Colposcopy
Gynaecologist, Kolkata
The size of the vagina does not increase in pregnancy. However it may become lax due to increased blood supply. Seizures or epilepsy in pregnancy can be of different types. Mostly no obvious pathology is found. Hence treatment is with antiepileptic drugs to control and prevent fits. Occasionally they can be due to tumor, infection etc;

Health Benefits Of Tulsi Tea

Health benefits of tulsi tea

1. Boosts immune system:

With amazing anti-biotic, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties, tulsi boosts the immune system of the individual and keeps infections at bay. Consuming tulsi tea regularly can thus help one stay healthy and fit even in the worst weather conditions!

2. Treats respiratory issues:

Whether you are suffering from mild cold, cough or severe asthma or bronchitis, consume tulsi tea to get instant relief. The immunomodulatory qualities of tulsi boost an individual’s immune system. Its antitussive qualities suppress cough and its expectorant traits help in the expulsion of phlegm. Camphene, cineole and eugenol essential oils in tulsi help in relieving the symptoms of chest congestion. Overall, tulsi tea is one solution for all the symptoms of cold, cough and other respiratory issues.

3. Supports heart:

Tulsi tea contains magnesium in good amounts. Magnesium is one mineral that has an active role in preventing heart diseases by ensuring the proper blood circulation in the vessels. Magnesium plays an effective role in preventing the cholesterol from depositing in the blood vessels and thus avoids any kind of atherosclerosis risks. This is one reason why those who consume tulsi tea regularly, tend to have lower blood cholesterol levels.

4. Cures fever:

In conditions where an individual has fevers (dengue, malaria etc), tulsi tea acts as a perfect anti-biotic that reduces the fevers and speeds up the recovery process. Being an antibiotic, tulsi tea acts on the microorganisms leading to fevers, thus eliminating the every root of it.

5. Stressbuster agent:

The levels of the stress hormone, or cortisol in our body are maintained by consuming tulsi tea regularly. At the same time, tulsi tea’s properties ensure a healthy blood flow that helps one stay healthy and fresh.

6. Oral and dental health:

Tulsi contains antimicrobial properties with which it fights the germs and bacteria that act inside our mouth and on our teeth. It can also prevent troubles like ulcers and pyorrhea if consumed regularly. At the same time, tulsi tea acts as a mouth freshener and prevents bad breath. However, one should avoid chewing tulsi leaves directly as that could harm the tooth enamel. Having tulsi tea instead is a healthier alternative in this regard!

7. Benefits skin and hair:

The anti-oxidant properties of tulsi tea make it an excellent tonic for maintaining the health and beauty of the skin. It contains polyphenols that help fight the signs of aging like wrinkles and black spots. Tulsi also contains properties that reduces itchiness on the scalp, hence controls hair fall.

8. Good for diabetics:

Those who are suffering from diabetes must consume tulsi tea on a regular basis as it helps in reducing the blood sugar levels. Tulsi has properties to boost the body metabolism and thus uses the excess sugars to transform them into energy. This therefore reduces the risk of high blood sugar levels.

9. Treats arthritis:

Tulsi tea has anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties with which it can be an effective solution for treating the symptoms of joint-related issues like arthritis. Consuming tulsi tea in such conditions, helps reduce the pain and the inflammation in joints. It makes the patients feel better in a natural manner.

10. Cures headaches:

Headache is emerging as an ailment that is affecting the health of most people these days. The main reason of it is the busy schedules, odd timings of work, sleep deprivation, and eating disorders. However, consuming tulsi tea amid all this can help one get relief from fatigue and stress. Tulsi tea has an aroma that has been proven to cure migraines and eliminate other stress related issues.

11. Aids weight loss:

Tulsi tea acts on the metabolic rate of an individual, thus it leads to the burning of body fat. It is one of the most natural and effective methods of losing weight. Tulsi tea boosts the metabolic rate, thus causes weight loss in an easy manner.

12. Boosts digestion:

Tulsi tea is highly helpful in ensuring proper digestion, assimilation and absorption of carbohydrates, proteins and lipids. Consuming tulsi tea regularly promotes easy digestion of food. This tea helps in maintaining healthy functioning of the liver, which is an important organ for the digestive process.

13. Supports renal health:

One of the greatest tulsi tea benefits is that it is a wonderful detoxifier and diuretic. It helps to ensure the healthy functioning of the kidneys. Tulsi tea helps in avoiding the kidneys from producing excessive uric acid. It also helps in the breakage of kidney stones. Even for the patients who have kidney stones already, tulsi can help in reducing the pain.

14. Reduces chances of cancer:

Since tulsi tea helps in the removal of toxic materials from the body, it prevents the formation of cancerous cells in it. It thus helps in reducing the chances of any kinds of cancer. Also the anti-carcinogenic properties of tulsi tea help in the treatment of breast and oral cancers.

15. Helps quit smoking:

With its stress busting qualities, tulsi tea helps those who would like to quit smoking. It has been found that stress is one of the prime reasons for smoking. Thus, tulsi tea helps in relieving this issue from the root itself.

Ways to Treat Sores and Lumps on Genitals

IVF Specialist, Delhi
Ways to Treat Sores and Lumps on Genitals

Female genital sores are painful eruptions that bear a red appearance which may cause severe itching and pain. These lumps and sores may be caused due to sexually transmitted diseases and other ailments like allergic reactions, dermatitis, and other irritants. These lesions are usually found in the vaginal area and may also be caused to a number of skin disorders which all affect this region. Let us find out how to treat this painful condition.

  • Recognising the Sores and Lumps: Many of these cases go unreported because the patient may feel embarrassed or ashamed to come up with the problem. But one must recognise the symptoms and the appearance of such sores so that the doctor may take a look at the earliest signs of eruption, so as to avoid a flare up and increase in the severity of the condition. The symptoms include pain and itchiness in the area as well as burning and bleeding along with pain in the pelvic area and discomfort during sexual intercourse and urination.
  • Causes: There are many reasons for these eruptions. Sexually transmitted diseases or STDs remain the top causes. Genital warts, genital herpes and chancroid which is a bacterial disease, can also cause this condition. Further, syphilis and molluscum contagiosum is a viral infection with pearl shaped nodules, which can also cause such eruptions and lumps in the genital area. Apart from STDs, other chronic conditions like inflammation of the vulva known as Vulvovaginitis, and contact dermatitis as well as atopic dermatitis, can cause this condition.
  • Diagnosis: The diagnosis will usually be done with a pelvic examination as well as urine culture to show the presence of bacteria. Also, other blood tests may be done to detect the presence of cysts. The patient's medical history will also be taken into account, for such cases.
  • Treatment: The doctor will prescribe a host of medicines including antibiotics and anti-viral medicines along with corticosteroids and pain relievers to help in treating these sores. Also, anti-itching ointments and medicines will be prescribed to make the condition less painful. These sores may also have to be removed with a minor surgical procedure at the doctor's clinic, in case they are too bothersome or painful.
  • Home Remedies: The best way to take care of these sores is by taking a sitz bath with warm water and wearing clothes that will not brush against the area, which can cause further abrasions and discomfort.

One can prevent this condition by practicing safe sex with one partner at a time. Using condoms is strongly recommended along with routine testing and check-ups. All sexual contact should be avoided until the condition is cured completely.

Causes, Symptoms and Treatment for Vaginal Rashes

Diploma in Dermatologist, Venereologist and Laparoscopy , MBBS
Dermatologist, Rewari
Causes, Symptoms and Treatment for Vaginal Rashes

Rashes in the vulva, which might be caused due to various health problems or due to irritation on skin, usually constitute all the vaginal rashes. The vaginal rashes might be the result of non infectious conditions (it might be an allergic reaction) or it might also be the result of a sexually transmitted infection. The vulva may become red and might have sores and blisters. Many times, the vulva doesn't change color at all, but visible bumps are present in the area.

The symptoms of vaginal rashes are as follows:

  1. Blisters or sores
  2. Reddening of the vulva
  3. Visible bumps
  4. Vaginal discharge
  5. Pain in the pelvic region
  6. Painful urination with a burning feeling
  7. Itchiness
  8. Pain while having sex
  9. Lice or insects in the pubic hair
  10. Fever
  11. Enlarged lymph nodes
  12. Ulcers on the groin

Although the symptoms are not usually fatal, sometimes the conditions might become life threatening. If your body temperature rises above 101oF and if you are suffering from a severe abdominal and pelvic pain, the best option is to consult a doctor immediately.

Vaginal rashes can be due both noninfectious causes as well as due to sexually transmitted infections. Some of the infectious causes are:

  1. Genital herpes
  2. Granuloma inguinale
  3. Human papilloma virus
  4. Molluscum contagiosum
  5. Scabies
  6. Pubic lice
  7. Yeast infections
  8. Syphilis

Some of the noninfectious causes are:

  1. Allergic reactions
  2. Eczema
  3. Chemical irritants like soap, lubricants, creams, etc
  4. Lichen Simplex Chronicus
  5. Psoriasis

Although the vaginal rashes aren't very serious in nature, you might face certain complications like infertility, secondary or tertiary syphilis, and transmitting the infection to your partner.

Vaginal rashes are usually treated with home remedies. Here are a few treatments you could try out if you are afflicted with vaginal rashes:

  • Apple Cider Vinegar: This particular substance is known for having antifungal and antibacterial properties. It will help you get over the itching which takes place when you are suffering with a vaginal rash. If the rash is due to a fungal or bacterial infection, then apple cider vinegar will help to clear out the infection. Wash your vagina with apple cider vinegar and warm water mixture.
  • Anti-bacterial Talc: Anti-bacterial talc is extremely mild to the skin. It helps to cure fungal infections but this method might take some time to cure the rash.

Consult your doctor if the rash becomes serious and requires immediate attention.

Hi, I appreciate you seeking help. Well, its difficult ascertaining what the issue exactly is, without clinically evaluating. I would advise that you meet up your OB/ GYN in person without further delay. As a part of the checkup, he/ she may require to do an USG of breasts/ abdomen or any other diagnostics as would deem appropriate here. Simultaneously, ensure that you have a healthy and balanced diet. Especially, try avoiding hot, spicy, oily, greasy, fatty foods etc all including carbonated beverages and fast foods. Do take care and all the very best.

How to prevent lifestyle diseases?

General Physician, Nashik
How to prevent lifestyle diseases?
How to prevent lifestyle diseases?

In the olden days, we had food scarcity and too much physical work. So obesity and lifestyle diseases were less among people. In those times people used to eat heavily when more food was available and eat less when no food was available. 

Then came the agricultural revolution era and a smart public distribution system. Food become abundant. It became impossible to change our centuries' old habit and we started eating more.

Then came industrial, it developments and opening up of markets. It created the following things:

Less physical work. Too much mental strain. Odd working hours. Availability of cheap tasty junk foods.

All these started leading to lifestyle diseases like obesity, hypertension and diabetes. 

Then came the medical era (the current period), when the incidences of the above said diseases started growing out of proportions. Nowadays we have started realizing that 

We are over eating. We are eating junk calories, food with high fat and salt content. We are leading a sedentary lifestyle.

We have started seeing our parents, relatives, friends getting these diseases, and we have come to know that there is no escape, since they too lead a similar lifestyle. This is the awareness era. Now availability of resources like internet and health magazines are changing people's mind to lead a healthy and fit life.

How to lead a healthy lifestyle and avoid lifestyle diseases?

Stop smoking, reduce alcohol consumption to once a week (two drinks only, it is better if avoid alcohol. Control your existing illnesses like diabetes and hypertension by dedicated dieting and regular consultation with your physician.
Physical activity: 40 minutes a day, minimum 5 days a week. Stop junk foods completely, reduce sugar, salt and oil consumption.
Sleep well (5-8 hours). Everybody has a different biological clock. A refreshing night's sleep varies from person to person. For some 5 hours is enough, for some they need 8 hours. Find out which person you are and start sleeping for the correct time.
