Dear Madam your question is not clear to me in spite of that aim giving some in formations regarding safe unprotected sex though failure may occur in low percentage i.e.Calculating your fertile / infertile (safe) period is simple. Follow the steps given below Find the last period start date Find out shortest and longest period cycles by observing your period cycles for atleast 6 months Illustrative example of calculating fertile period shortest cycle=27 days longest cycle=28 days Subtract 18 days from the shortest cycle 27-18=9 days Subtract 10 days from the longest cycle 28-10=18 days The 9th day to 18 th day from your last period is the unsafe period The rest is the safe period.

I am 36 years old female married with no children. I have immense stomach pain during my cycle right from the year it started. Sometimes the pain is so severe that I have to take injections. Have tried various medicines. While I take the medicines it is ok once I stop it again it is the same. Is there any way to reduce the pains. Can I stop my menstrual cycle and yet get pregnant.

At age 36 you are leaving it a bit late to conceive. But that's your decision. Describe your pain - when it starts, where is the pain and how long after the period does it stop?

Breast Lumps - How Can They Be Treated?

Gynaecologist, Delhi
Breast Lumps - How Can They Be Treated?

A breast lump is an enlargement, swell, protuberance or a bump that is different than the breast tissue surrounding it. Breast lumps can appear in men as well as women and they can be benign or malignant. Causes of benign breast lumps are as follows:

  1. Fibroadenosis: Also known as Fibro-cystic breast disease, it is a benign condition that affects the breast. It may affect either of the breasts or both. One of the major symptoms of Fibroadenosis is a breast lump. Usually, the lumpiness disappears after the menstrual cycle is over. Fibroadenosis occurs because the breast tissue doesn’t respond well to the hormonal changes during the menstrual cycle.
  2. Fibroadenomas: Fibroadenomas occur because of abnormal response to the hormone oestrogen. The lumps are usually well formed and round, around the milk ducts of the breast. Breast lumps due to Fibroadenomas are called breast mice, because they move around the breast. In some cases, they disappear and in some, they tend enlarge during pregnancy.

Other benign causes of breast lumps are breast abscesses, breast cysts, lipoma (lump of fat), mastitis (infection in the breast tissues), fat necrosis (another name for breast lumps) and intraductal papilloma (benign tumour of the milk ducts in the breast). A breast lump that is firm, well defined and doesn’t move around, i.e. it doesn’t disappear after your period or pregnancy, may be a result of breast cancer.

Treatment of breast lumps
The treatment of a breast lump depends on its cause. Benign breast lumps usually disappear over time. Otherwise following treatments can be considered as per the doctor’s discretion-

  1. Medication: If the breast lumps are painful or increase over time, it is advisable to take medication.
    • Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and other painkillers like paracetamol
    • Danazol, Tamoxifen or Bromocriptine are administered to treat breast pain as well
    • Antibiotics which are administered to cure breast abscesses that are caused due bacterial infections
  2. Limiting the amount of fat in the diet or wearing well fitting bras also reduces the amount of pain due to breast lumps.
  3. Certain types of breast lumps are filled with fluid or pus. This fluid can be drained through a procedure called aspiration or drainage.
  4. A radical way to treat a breast lump is surgery. Many a times, these lumps get bigger and painful and the most effective way to deal with it is to remove it. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

Ayurveda and Smoking

MD - Ayurveda, BAMS

Ayurveda and Smoking

Every packet of cigarette comes with the warning 'Smoking is injurious to health'. With every national budget plan, the prices of nicotine based additives are hiked. Yet, you cannot quit smoking because you find it extremely difficult to resist the nicotine urge. Ayurveda says that the root cause of addiction is mental stress due to one of the 3 Doshas that are Vata, Pitta, Kapha. People try to terminate them through temporary, addictive methods rather than a bit more natural, holistic methods. Here's how it can be easier for you to quit smoking by adopting Ayurvedic remedies.

Ayurvedic remedies:

  1. Drink adequate amount of water, especially from a copper vessel. This helps to accumulate the wastes and release them.
  2. Perform the Neti Kriya (inhaling saline water through one nostril and releasing it through the other and then reversing the procedure).
  3. Performing the Bhastrika Pranayama twice every day, both in the morning and at night.
  4. Consume 3 tablets or 1  teaspoon of triphala everyday before going to bed, to eliminate the deposited nicotine tar in your system.
  5. Consumption of a measured mixture of ashwagandha, bala, shatavari and ginseng every day, or a chyawanprash containing these help in detoxification.

Changes in diet:

  1. Avoid consumption of alcohol and other addictive drugs, such as coffee, sugar, etc. because they increase the urge to smoke.
  2. Decrease intake of fatty foods because your metabolism rate is lower than at most other times, so you might risk gaining weight during this period.
  3. Try a vegetarian diet because it increases the Sattvik quality of your mind. Every fresh food item contains prana or life which rejuvenates both your body and mind.
  4. Chew anti-nicotine gums or suck on cinnamon sticks which curb your urge to smoke.
  5. Keep eating low-calorie food items like carrots, apples or celery.
  6. Incorporating regular exercise in your routine may help you to quit smoking more easily. It controls weight gain, which is a side-effect of quitting, and also offers you a fit and healthy lifestyle.
  7. Meditating and doing yoga regularly helps in relaxing your mind. Yogic postures like Sabasan help attain internal peace and divert your mind from craving to smoke.

Besides these techniques, there are various other ways like taking help from a professional ayurvedic counselor, which will help you quit smoking, socializing with friends or spending quality time with your family, will keep your mind diverted from the stress of quitting.

Hello, If you have undergone family planning operation , then its a permanent sterilisation method. No home remedies can cause recanalisation. Repeat tubal recanalisation can be done after cutting the tubes and rejoining them again , but only by surgery. Regards

I had unprotected sex on 15th n 16th February. My periods are generally regular. My last period was on 24th January. What are the chances of me getting pregnant.

PhD Human Genetics
You had unprotected sex on the 23rd/24th day of your menstrual cycle. For a regularly menstruating woman, the chances of pregnancy are almost nil on these dates.

Hi. Can a lady get pregnant during the 6th day of periods. If she has intercourse. Please suggest.

MBBS, MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Gurgaon
It's unlikely to get pregnant on the 6th day as ovulation occurs somewhere fro 12 to 18 days time frame in a cycle of 28 days, it is only possible if she has irregular periods, and a shorter cycle history. Since in sperm stays alive in female genital tract for a week it may fertilize the ovum if you have had an unprotected sexual contact. So it's a fifty fifty chance, wait for her due date and get her urine pregnancy test done to confirm pregnancy.

Not early maturation is not a problem, yes there are chances that you can conceive in this cycle also. If you are not able to conceive naturally for 3-4 months then you can go for iui.
