Coming clear and white fluid from nipples i have my period 12 days back on feb12 and i am 24 years am i pregnant?

DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology)
Gynaecologist, Bangalore
You had your periods on Feb 12th. Diagnosing pregnancy so early is not possible. Also, discharge from the nipples is not a typical symptom of early pregnancy. If you miss periods, get a urine pregnancy test. However, if you get periods, get a blood test for Serum Prolactin Level and T3, T4, TSH on empty stomach, without having tea/coffee/breakfast after a good 8 hours of sleep.

Please note that following in respect to queries - I am providing you some tips to enjoy sex with your wife: Women are verbal creatures and our love of words extends to the bedroom. Unfortunately, most of what you may have heard guys say in porn is all wrong (Ask "Who's your daddy" and you just might get a slap across the face). What your partner does want to hear are phrases that let her know how turned on you are, how much you love her body, and how good you want to make her feel. And even more important than what you say is the way you say it—when she can hear the burning lust in your voice, her thighs pretty much catch on fire. The number one thing women want is for you to be more aggressive in bed. That means handling her body with strength and confidence, which can be insanely erotic for her. And it doesn't require a lot of work or advanced skills on your part. In fact, doing just one take-charge thing can spike her arousal level. A few to try: In missionary, take her wrists and hold them above her head, pinned to the mattress. When she's on top, hold her hips and push/pull them back and forth, so her clitoris grinds against your pubic bone. And when you want to change positions, don't do it slowly or politely—grab her and put her where you want her. A foreplay is a must to bring her to mood and then perform. Include carrots, fennel seeds, celery, bananas, garlic, onion, ginger, shellfish, lettuce etc. - Including these foods in your daily diet will ensure that you remain free from sexual problems. If she has any vaginal pain then use a lubricant/Vaseline/olive oil on penis before intercourse. However you need to be sure that she is wet all around before penetration. Please try the above and you will sure get results. Get back to me on this again if this does not gives you desire result

Pain During Sex - Know the Reasons Behind it!

Pain During Sex - Know the Reasons Behind it!

Severe pain during intercourse causes difficulty in a relationship in both partners. Sometimes a sustained occurrence of pain might be an indication of some serious medical dysfunction. As such, consult a doctor as soon as the pain arises. Contrary to popular beliefs, sexual pain can occur in both male and female.

In female, the reasons behind the painful sexual intercourse might be:

  1. Vaginismus, a condition when the vaginal muscles tighten up mainly due to anxiety or fear and cause significant pain with a tearing sensation.
  2. The pain can arise due to vaginal infection due to yeast or any form of sexually transmitted disease or pelvic inflammatory diseases.
  3. A severe injury in the vagina during childbirth or any other accident and psychological stress can also cause severe pain during sex.
  4. Sometimes, uterine or menopause problems (formation of fibroids in the uterus) can also cause pain.
  5. Cyst formation in the ovary or endometriosis (when the inner tissue lining of the uterus tends to grow outside) can also cause severe pain during intercourse.

Among men:

  1. Some men can experience pain during intercourse because of allergy to the fluids of the vagina or the chemical content of certain contraceptives.
  2. You can experience pain because of undiagnosed sexually transmitted diseases like herpes or gonorrhea
  3. The pain might also occur due to urinary tract infections or side effects from certain medications.
  4. Severe pain just a few moments before ejaculation can be a result of inflammation of the prostate glands and should be immediately diagnosed as it might be a signal of prostate cancer.

For treating pain during sex in female, you should opt for the following procedures

  1. If the pain is caused due to vaginal dryness after menopause, you should consider the application of prescribed lubricants or jellies to reduce the pain.
  2. If the pain occurs due to severe anxiety or stress, sex therapy can help you improve physical intimacy.
  3. If there are other symptoms like severe bleeding or irregular periods in addition to the pain, a visit to the physician is recommended.

Quite similarly in men

  1. If the pain occurs due to severe anxiety or stress, sex therapy can help you improve physical intimacy.
  2. If the pain results from side effects of certain medications, you should try changing your prescribed medication after doctor’s suggestion.
  3. In extreme cases, the doctors might suggest hormone replacement surgery. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a sexologist.

Hi, Get an ultrasound (pelvis) done to rule out any cause of irregular menses. Reduced physical activity can also lead to skipped periods. You can increase you daily physical activity, get indulge into simple cardio exercises like brisk walk, jogging, running, skipping a rope, jumping, cycling, swimming, etc. Swimming is a kind of exercise which exercise every part of the body. Apart from this, you can also think of opting for other exercises like yoga, but do it under the guidance of a qualified person only. Yoga for irregular menses: 1.Trikonasana: -Stand on the ground with your legs apart (ideally shoulder-width). Begin turning your right leg at a right angle to your body. -Gently begin bending sideways until your palms touch the ground. -Now, raise the left hand and look at the tips of your left hand’s fingers. -Hold the pose for around 3-6 minutes. -Return to the starting point. -Repeat the asana. 2. Vajrasana: -Sit on the floor with your legs folded under your body. -Ensure that you keep your spine straight. -Close your eyes and place your right palm on your right knee and do the same for the left palm. -Inhale deeply and think about the healthy air you breathe in. -Count to 10 and release the inhaled air. Imagine the disorder leaving along with the carbon dioxide. -Repeat the exercise for around 10 minutes and rest. 3. Tadasana: -Stand on the ground with your feet slightly apart. -Your heels should be flat on the floor. -Keep your hands by the body’s side. -Gaze forward. -Hold this position for 2-5 minutes. -Rest. 4. Adho Mukhasvanasana: -Go down on all fours. To perform this asana, sit on your fours. -Begin raising your pelvis until your hands and legs straighten. -Ensure that your knees and elbows aren’t bent. -Hold the pose for 10-15 seconds. -Gently go down to the starting position. -Repeat.

PID - 5 Associated Risk Factors

MBBS, DGO, DNB
Gynaecologist, Delhi
PID - 5 Associated Risk Factors

Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) refers to the infection that occurs in the female reproductive organs. It happens when sexually transmitted bacteria infect the uterus, ovaries or fallopian tubes on spreading from the vagina. Generally, the cervix plays the role of preventing the bacteria from entering the vagina and infecting the reproductive organs. But when the cervix becomes exposed to an STD, it loses its power to put a stop to the spread of these microorganisms to the reproductive organs.

What causes this condition?
STDs like gonorrhea and chlamydia have been found to be responsible for about 90% of PID cases.

Some of the other causes include

  • Abortion
  • Childbirth
  • Pelvic procedures

The condition is only detected later in life when you face difficulty in getting pregnant or have chronic pelvic pain complaints. If you experience symptoms like vomiting, high fever, pain in the lower abdomen and instances of fainting, you should immediately seek a doctor.

What puts you at risk for PID?
Certain factors may put you at a higher risk for PID and these are:

  • Instances of sexually transmitted diseases like Chlamydia (an STD that can occur from anal, oral or vaginal sex) and gonorrhea (a condition that causes discharge from the vagina or urethra) can make you prone to developing PID.
  • Douching on a regular basis can increase your risk of PID as it disrupts the equilibrium of good and bad bacteria in your vagina, and may hide the symptoms of the condition as well.
  • Even a previous history of PID can increase your chances of having another episode of PID.
  • Compared to older women, teenagers who are sexually active are more prone to developing PID.
  • Having multiple sexual partners can also put you at a greater risk for PID and STDs. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.

Preconception Planning: Is your Body Ready for Pregnancy?

Preconception Planning: Is your Body Ready for Pregnancy?

Planning on getting pregnant can involve taking steps that will help you in having a safe and fulfilling pregnancy and subsequent childbirth. It is important to indulge in preconception planning so as to ensure that you are in the pink of health and ready to go through the process of bearing and birthing a child in the best possible manner. Indulging in this stage is also a way of looking out for your unborn child and ensuring that he or she gets the best conditions during and right after pregnancy. So how can you tell if your body is ready for pregnancy? Here’s a quick list for you!

  1. Type of Birth Control: In the preconception stage, it is important to ask what kind of birth control you have been using. This will make it easier for you to estimate your cycles and know when you will be due for your period once you stop the pill, so that you know roughly when you will be ovulating. Usually, for most birth control pills, the time lag is about two weeks which gives you plenty of time for the menstruation cycle to get back to its normal course.

  2. Vaccinations: You will need to check whether or not all your vaccinations are current and up to date. Before you start trying for conception, it will be best to get these vaccinations done as many of them cannot be taken once you have conceived, due to side effects like fever and more, which cannot be treated with regular allopathic medication once you are pregnant. Remember to specially check about vaccinations for German Measles and Chickenpox, which can prove to be fatal if they strike during pregnancy or the post-natal period, when the immunity of the body dips.

  3. Chronic Medical Conditions: If you have chronic medical conditions like hypertension or diabetes or any other such ailment, then you will need to get your weight, blood pressure, blood sugar level and other such vitals to a normal level before you conceive so that you do not have to deal with the side effects of such medication that can be caused during pregnancy.

  4. Supplements: You may have to change or switch the doses and medicines that you have been taking on a long term basis so as to make way for prenatal vitamins which will also help in preventing neural tube anomalies that can strike the baby if the development of the same does not happen properly in the very first month after conception.

While you are at it, you should also consider talking to your doctor about any family history of birth defects and anomalies to know your risk and chances. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

Either you are getting rashes due to cholestasis which is usually mild and resolves by 4-5 weeks, or it is puppp syndrome which is also quite normal at this time. Drink a lot of water. Use calamine lotion over body. You may also take medicines to reduce bilirubin levels, available on prescription.
