Hello doctor m 32 year old trying to conceive pregnancy, I did hsg nd it show right fallopian tube block nd my Amh is 1.63 What should I do pls suggest.

Ayurveda, Jalgaon
Hello. Only one side tubal blockage is there. Then its not of so worry. The main thing is that your menses should be regular & LEFT ovary should make mature ovum monthly. With the help of a gynaec doctor monitor for growth of ovum through sonographically if its ok then not to worry. Also do all the test of your partner for fertility.

U must consult your obstetrician as soon as possible as you might need antiboliotic therapy. Vaginal discharge and pain in abdomen are to be taken seriously during pregnancy as it puts your kid at risk. In ayurveda, there are various treatments available depending upon your condition and severity as well as type of infection. Some amount of vaginal discharge is common in pregnancy. But if you have pain and excessive discharge, you need few tests to diagnose the severity and type of infection. Apart from this, maintain good hygiene, use only cotton undergarments, use only clean toilets and avoid excessive spicy food.

Dear user. TO CAUSE PREGNANCY on a woman, sperm should be ejaculated inside the vagina or fresh sperm should be inseminated inside the vagina with some means during the fertility period of the woman. There are many determinants of pregnancy. You should be sexually matured. Your partner should be sexually matured. The period of your partner should be in the fertile stage. Her egg and your sperm cells should be healthy enough. Then her uterus should be capable to get conceived. If all these were satisfied, the pregnancy could be a result. Semen do not pass through clothes to make pregnancy. Sex during periods does not cause pregnancy. In the given case, there are less chances of pregnancy. Take care.

How to Deal With Asthma During Pregnancy

Pulmonologist, Faridabad
How to Deal With Asthma During Pregnancy

Asthma, the long term inflammatory disease, affects the airways of lungs. A number of symptoms, including obstruction of air flow into the lungs, which can cause breathlessness, coughing, wheezing, allergic reactions and swelling of the tubes, points to it. The causes include genes as well as pollution in the environment which is resulting in an increasing number of cases. The diagnosis is usually done with a spirometry and the treatment is a long term process. 

Women who suffer from asthma have to be especially vigilant during pregnancy as it can lead to a number of complications including less air passage to the foetus. This can result in a slow rate of development and certain anomalies in extreme cases. So how can a pregnant lady manage asthma? Here are a few tips:

  1. Involve Pulmologist: To begin with, the obstetrician and the pulmonologist must both be well aware of the situation. The pulmonologist must be given detailed information with regards to allergies as well as past treatment and medical history so that the treatment is done systematically to prevent an asthmatic attack and any complications to the foetus. 
  2. Lung Function: During pregnancy, the doctor must monitor lung function carefully with monthly check ups to ensure that the right amount of oxygen is reaching the foetus. This is done because the severity of asthma changes in most women during pregnancy. A spriometry or peak flow metre can be used to measure the lung function. Also, the foetal movements must be monitored on a monthly basis, or rather, once every 28 days, to be more specific. 
  3. Influenza: Flu is a common outcome of asthma, especially when it becomes severe during pregnancy. The onset of flu or influenza must be prevented at all costs with the help of a flu vaccine that will be effective at least for a season at a time. It is a pregnancy safe injection. 
  4. Triggers: There are many things that may trigger an asthmatic attack or an allergic reaction that can lead to the same. Ensure that you do not suffer from these triggers by avoiding dust, pollen, tobacco smoke and varied other substances that can lead to choking and wheezing. 
  5. Medication: One must ask the doctor about pregnancy safe inhaled corticosteroids that one can take during pregnancy if and when the need arises.

 It is recommended to take medication for asthma during pregnancy only after a consultation with the doctor. Also, do not reduce the dose of the medicine unless your doctor has recommended a change.

The main problem with pcod is absence of ovulation, leading to irregular cycles and difficulty in conceiving. It has strong corelation with weight, so keep your wt in control, and do regular exercise, and consult gynaec to start ovulation induction with follicular sonography, once ovulation happens you have chance of conceiving, and periods will be regular.

Healthy Gut OR Host for Parasite

Intestinal parasites-Tape warm, ring warm, thread worm, Whip worm........You would have heard about them.

We all are living in an environment full of toxins and Parasites. Toxins makes our immunity weak, let the parasite get entered into our blood and get settled in our gut. And now whatever good we are having is not nourishing us, but firstly to our tiny unwanted guest.

The signs of a parasite can often appear unrelated and unexplained. It is typically seen, parasites causes more constipation in patients than diarrhoea, but some parasites are capable of changing the fluid balance in your gut and causes diarrhoea. Trouble sleeping, skin irritations, mood changes, and muscle pain can all be caused by the toxins that parasites release into the bloodstream. These toxins often cause anxiety, which can manifest itself in different ways. For instance, waking up in the middle of the night or grinding your teeth in your sleep are signs that your body is experiencing anxiety while you rest. When these toxins interact with your neurotransmitters or blood cells, they can cause mood swings or skin irritation, Rashes or Itchiness.

Few others signs are:


You can get infected by:

- Walking barefoot in the garden, playground or any infected soil; for example, hookworm larvae burrow through the skin of bare feet.

- Ingesting worm eggs through eating fruits, vegetables, grains, fish and meat contaminated with roundworm or whip worm.

- Washing fruits and vegetables with contaminated water.

- Transfer of the parasitic worms from pets to owner.

- Coming in contact with the soil that has been contaminated with human faeces from an infected person.

- Not washing hands with soap and water after defecating. Open air defecation also increases the risk of worm infestation.


Worm infestation affects normal growth in children and can cause malnutrition in adults too. Thus, it is recommended to de-worm babies in every six months after they turn one. De-worming medication kills adult worms but not the eggs + new infection form above mentioned sources makes repetition of the dose in every six months vital, even in adults too.


In Ayurveda, there are natural remedies for de- worming. That are safe and effective:

  • Ajwain (carom seeds): Ajwain seeds taken with jaggery dissolved in cold water early in the morning expels worms during defecation.
  • Castor Oil : Take 1 spoon Castor oil and eat 10 gm Sugar on an empty stomach. One of the best remedy for all intestinal parasite. (It can raise the frequency of defecation) 
  • Bael (Bengal quince, wood apple): The fruit kills the worm within the body which is then expelled with stools.
  • Palasha (flame of the forest): Effective in treating roundworms. Take the seeds with buttermilk twice daily.
  • Tulsi (sweet basil): Seeds of Tulsi in water or even chewing the leaves on an empty stomach is an effective remedy for all parasitic worms, including tapeworm.

So protect yourself and your loved ones from intestinal parasites. Keep your gut Happy and yourself Healthy.

I am a 21 weeks pregnant women. Now am suffered joints pain near pelvic and leg. Past few days I suffered lot. While standing and sitting doesn't pain created but in sleeping position I can't turn from left side to right side it creates more pain. Also while wakeup from bed its create more pain. Please give me some suggestions.

Eat less rice. Eat brown rice. Eat whole grains. Brown bread. Vegetables. Eat 5 times small portions. No mealing only snacking. Sleep with pillow between legs while on sides.

I have used Diane 35 birth control pills but I would like to switch to Yasmin, is it a good idea?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
If you r suffering from pcod with excessive hair then only you need to be on diane-35. If you r using these medicines to get regular menses, then it is of no use as it will be same story after completion of the course. If you r taking it for the purpose of only birth control or contraception then definitely you need to switch to yasmin.

Hypnotherapy In Smoking Cessation

Hypnotherapy In Smoking Cessation

Smoking is a die hard habit and many people eventually die of the same. It remains one of the most common causes of cancer and lung diseases, which eventually lead to death. The irony is that almost all smokers know the harmful effects, but find it hard to quit.

With a firm determination, there are people who quit, but then the relapse rate is quite high too.

  • Many believe that quitting requires a behavioural change. From peer pressure to a lifestyle habit, smoking is a social phenomenon. There are various methods to help quit smoking like quitting cold turkey and nicotine substitutes. Hypnosis is also gaining popularity as a method to help quit smoking. Research has shown an encouraging success rate in the range of 30 to 40% in cases where the desire and commitment to quit are high. This of course is with people who have strong will and are able to be hypnotized.
  • Hypnosis or hypnotherapy is a psychological technique used as supplemental therapy in a lot of cases, such as weight loss, depression, speech disorders, pain management, de-addiction; the list can be quite long.  It puts the person undergoing therapy into a deep sleep or trance, where they get in touch with themselves and find answers to a lot of questions. It is believed that while hypnosis puts a person to sleep, it also induces a higher level of cognition and a higher level of neurological activity. 
  • During the actual session, the smoker is asked to imagine the numerous ill effects of smoking and the need to reduce its harmful effects on the body. This improves the willpower to quit smoking and reduces the desire. They are also advised of the benefits of quitting smoking, including longevity of life and better quality of life. The person is told that quitting smoking before 50 years of age gives a 50% chance of increasing the lifespan by 15 years. Now that is quite motivating for a lot of smokers to give up the habit.
  • It generally takes about 4 full sessions of hypnotherapy to reach a level where the patient is ready to kick the habits. Also, self hypnosis can be taught where the person can go into hypnosis on his own and enforce smoking cessation. There are even self hypnosis tapes that are available for aid.

However, a word of caution here, hypnosis is not for everybody as not everybody can be hypnotized easily and there has to be a strong belief that it will benefit, only then can smoking cessation be tried with hypnosis. It is still in the testing phase and is to be medically proven as a way to quit smoking.
