Telling a gender of the foetus is a crime for both the doctor and the patient and so I will suggest you to accept and wait till delivery

Hi €œBecause there's an increase in vaginal discharge during pregnancy, it can cause irritation of the skin of the vulva.” So it could just be because of your discharge, or it could be a sign of an infection like a yeast infection, bacterial vaginosis, trichomoniasis, herpes or HPV.

I had sex with 2 girl without protection yesterday I had sex with my wife i am very scared can I diagnose with hiv or hiv western bolt what is that western bolt? How hiv occur how its effect on body? Shall I now sex with my wife in future?

If the two girls are commercial sex workers, then you must be on guard. Unprotected sex with any unknown partner can be a high risk activity and may result in transmission of hiv infection. As per your saying, you had unprotected sex with 2 girls and also had sex with your wife, this act of yours is very irresponsible one. When a person comes in sexual contact with a hiv infected person, the hiv virus can enter the body. Hiv virus is intracellular virus, it needs a cell to multiply body immunity helps in fighting the hiv virus and can keep the virus destroyed, unless the virus has multiplied in vast quantities and has damaged the" protective" white blood cells. This takes time. If the infection is well controlled then the elisa will be negative. That a person is free from hiv, can be said with confidence only after 2 elisa tests 6 months apart, and both being negative. The earliest marker is hiv viral load. This is in the first weeks after infection (usually from 1 to 6 weeks after exposure). A high viral load is related to seroconversion symptoms. The first hiv protein (antigen) that can be measured is p24 (from 2 to 8 weeks after exposure). Viral load and p24 tests are not accurate for diagnosing early hiv if the results are negative. An hiv antibody response can be detected as early as two weeks in a few people and in more than 99.9% of people by 12 weeks. An antibody test at 4 weeks will detect 95% of infections. Antibody testing at 4 weeks can give you a good indication of your hiv status, but you need a test at 12-24 weeks after the exposure to be considered hiv negative. All this will matter if those 2 girls were hiv positive! if they are negative, there will not be any chances of you or your wife getting hiv also, it would be better to abstain from sex with your wife or anybody for the next 6 months or if that is not possible, then a condom with a spermicidal coating is the best option.

How to Diagnose and Manage Acute Coronary Syndrome

DM Cardiology
Cardiologist
Ask Free Question
The word acute coronary syndrome refers to a group of symptoms that are caused by blockage of the blood flow to the heart muscles. The most common result of this is myocardial infarction or heart attack as it is popularly called. Reduced blood flow leads to death of some portion of the heart muscle wall. While the word heart attack sounds almost fatal, it need not be the case. Knowing how to identify an attack and being aware of some simple measures can help save lives.

Symptoms
The tell tale signs of a heart attack are as follows:
- chest pain and discomfort usually described as a tightness or burning in the chest region
- pain along the left side of the shoulder and neck, going up into the jaw, down to the arm
- nausea and vomiting
- profuse sweating
- difficulty breathing
- dizzy or fuzzy feeling
- tired, extreme fatigue
- anxious, apprehensive feeling

However, be also aware that there are a lot of people who experience a silent heart attack. Women, obese, elderly, and diabetic patients can have silent attacks and depending on severity, either they go on with life as usual or can have a fatal attack.

Diagnosis
Once you are doubtful of a heart attack, the next step is to reach the closest medical facility for a diagnosis. In addition to a detailed examination and history, the following two tests will be performed.

1. Electrocardiogram (ecg): a 12-lead ecg will measure electrical activity of the heart and identify irregular electrical activity, which is indicative of a myocardial infarction.

2. Blood tests: presence of certain enzymes in the blood, ck-mb and troponin are indicative of a heart attack. A complete electrolyte profile also will be done, and increase or decrease of some electrolytes is helpful in diagnosing a heart attack.

3. In addition to these two, chest radiography, cardiac angiography, echocardiogram, stress test, and computed coronary tomography may also be required to confirm the diagnosis.

Management
Once diagnosed, the first step would be to relieve the symptoms, negate the effects of reduced blood flow, and restore cardiac function.
1. Dissolve the clot - using thrombolytics like clopidogrel
2. Nitroglycerin - to dilate the blood vessels and improve blood flow, especially to the heart muscles
3. Anticoagulant therapy - blood thinners are usually used to avoid blood clot formation; aspirin and heparin are the most commonly used agents.
4. Drug therapy - blood pressure maintaining drugs like beta blockers and/or angiotensin-converting enzyme (ace) inhibitors are also used
5. Use of statins - statins are used to reduce the amount of cholesterol in the blood and stabilize plaque deposits.

In very severe cases, angioplasty and stenting or coronary bypass surgery may be required. Educating people on how to identify a heart attack and manage it is very useful and can help save lives.

Shin splints, medically known as medial tibial stress syndrome (mtss), refers to pain in the shins - the front lower legs. It is an inflammatory condition of the front part of the tibia. The pain is brought on by strenuous activity, more commonly in stop-start sports such as squash, tennis or basketball. Running too much on hard surfaces is also a common cause of shin splints.

These tips may help you avoid suffering with shin splints.

-use proper fitting shoes with good support
-make sure the insoles are shock-absorbing. If you have flat feet, good insoles are vital
-avoid hard surfaces, uneven terrain, or slanted slopes
-increase your intensity gradually
-make sure you are warmed up properly before doing exercise.
