The main cause of PCOD is hormonal imbalance. It profoundly affects woman's hormonal cycle, but don't worry PCOD can affects a female fertility only by 30%. So in our practice we have seen a complete and permanent balancing of hormonal cycle which is visible in terms of regular menstrual cycle and afterwards analyzing the other factor. We can work on all this factor. Hypothyroidism now a days is more an iodine deficiency disease, but it has become an autoimmune disease. In homoeopathy we give the medicine which makes the body generator, an adequate thyroid level, so that gradually body resume it's original functionality which is visible through the thyroid level test time to time, and gradually you can get rid of your altroxin as well, and may be after sometime you can stop homoeopathy medicine as your thyroid level remains normal afterwards. Avoid cabbage, cauliflower, soya in food.

Hi lybrate-user you plan sex from day 8-18th of the period in order to get pregnant provided if periods are regular 30 days. Plan sex alternate day. Once she missed her periods then get a urine pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy.

If pregnancy was not the issue this fleshy thing was clot and happens when progesterone tablets are stopped after taking for 5 days or more. You r likely to experience this kind of bleeding for 2-3 days as you took progesteron (primolut). This will subside within 3 days.

Swelling in the bladder is not responsible for this. As this has happened for the first time there is no need of any treatment or any tests. /this occurs because of hormonal changes or stress or weight gain also. This is temporary and next menses will be normal. I hope there is no issue of pregnancy here.

1 sperm is sufficient to make you conceive. The precum also has sperms. But as you has sex on the day when periods were due, may be delay in periods is due to because of some emergency pill which you might have taken. Pregnancy is unlikely if you had sex on 8th, if your periods are regular otherwise.

Mujhe pcod ki problem hai mera weight or brest bahut jayada hai please mujhe mera diet chart btaye. Weight kam karne ke liye.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
You need to have diet plan based on your BMI & activities. Whatever we eat is metabolised by the body for the energy needed to do daily work and the excess is stored as fat. Abdomen is the first place to gain weight and last to disappear. In brief, Weight reduction can be achieved only by reducing the intake of food 1/3 of what you take now. And by appropriate exercise plans for each part like belly, thighs, legs / chest etc. to burn off fat. Some tips 1) Drink three or four cups of water whenever you feel hungry and just before eating food 2) Take boiled or raw vegetable like cucumber, carrot etc. as half of your diet. Then take 1/2 of your total diet as sprouted pulses / proteinaceous food like roti, cooked pulses and remaining with rice or other carbohydrates. Oil or ghee etc. should be just bare minimum. And do aerobic exercises, running, jogging or at least walking briskly 3-5 KMs and swimming if possible, and in a gym if feasible. The most important is to burn off the energy intake by exercises. There is no short cut or medicines without exercise & dieting to take just as mush food as needed for your activities. The food we eat is utilised for our energy needs and the remaining will be stored as fat which leads to obesity. It is better to do some tests.
