If she is not fit for chemotherapy then hormone treatment can be considered at this age. Hormone treatment is safe and without any major side effect. Hormone treatment is effective only if er and pgr are positive.

Cyst is what it looks like to the eye and surgeon has removed it and sent for histopath test to look at cells not visible to the eye but under a microscope machine, to rule out cancer, to know the functioning of the cells. It will be more scientific and reassuring to you and to the doctor to close the chapter once the reort is normal. It is ready within 3 days.

Nazimaji, The results of thyroid assay are quite normal. Hence, you are not having hypothyroidism. The reason for irregular periods could be different. Better to consult a gynaecologist regarding menstrual disturbances.

Hi there ~ although there is no way to tell where or not you might have hiv right away, you may be better off taking post exposure prophylaxis (pep) medications as a safety precaution. I believe you might be afraid of the consequences of having unprotected sex, so get some counseling regarding safe sex practices and always always use protection if you are not sure. I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day! sincerely,

Chandraprabha vati 2 tabs twice a day tab. Kuberakshi vati 2 tabs twice a day liq. Dashmoolarishta and liq ashokarishta 2-2tsf mix together and add 4 tsf of water. Take these medicines 15 min before food. Consult nearest ayurvedic physician for more information.

Dear questioner, please understand that i-pill should not be taken to delay periods. It is to be used as an emergency contraceptive measure and that too only after consulting a doctor. Different tablets are to be taken to delay periods. Please consult with your doctor. Thanks Dr. Anup khosla.

The chances of getting pregnant in a single cycle is only 15-20% even if everything is fine. So don't worry try for at least 3-6 months during fertile period.

If we cum outside the vagina is there any chance of pregnancy. What are the precautions we need to take when having sex with out condom not to get pregnancy.

Dear lybrate-user, this is not a ver good method to prevent pregnancy. Chances of having pregnancy in this are pretty high. Should go for better, effective, safe methods of contraception.

DONATE BLOOD & SAVE LIVES
*********************************************
Why should we donate blood?
Blood is a precious human resource that is only available from voluntary donors.
Blood cannot be made in any lab in the world.
Every 3 seconds someone needs blood. We think that someone else will donate the blood that is needed, as a result, only less than 5% of qualified donors actually donate the blood.
The common your blood group, more and more people are going to need it. So don’t say that my blood group is too common.
Persons above 18years of age and over 50kgs in weight can donate blood once in 3 months. There is no upper limit age for blood donation.
Less than 10% of blood is taken out at time of blood donation. This blood is replaced by your body in 24-48 hours.
Every donor is given a medical check-up prior to donation to see if he is medically fit for donation
Even if you are taking any medication, still you may be able to donate the blood.
No special diet, rest or medicine is required after blood donation.
The donor cannot contract any infectious disease by donating blood. There is a clear procedure for taking blood from each donor. At no time will a donor come in contact with any piece of equipment or material that has had contact with someone else’s blood or body fluids.
Only 20 min are required for blood donation.
It gives you inner satisfaction, experience it!!!

Ayurveda and Joint Pain

DSM ( Siddha Medicine), BAMS

Ask Free Question
In Ayurveda, joint pain is known as 'Sandhigata Vata'. Arthritis and Joint pain are among the most prevalent problems faced by adults, mostly old people. As per ayurveda, 'vata dosha' Is responsible for joint pains and other discomforts associated with it. Natural remedies and proper lifestyle techniques can be utilized to balance the 'vata' to lessen the occurrence and severity of joint pain. Factors including,old age, obesity, injury and strenuous physical activities (that require a lot of joint movements) are responsible for disturbing the balance of your 'vata'.

The following are some ayurvedic home remedies that can be utilized to treat joint pain:
1. Massage therapy: Warm coconut, castor, mustard, olive or garlic oil can be utilized to massage the affected areas to lessen the intensity of pain. If you massage the affected joints with natural oils, it improves blood circulation and relaxes the swelling and stiffness in the region.

2. Hot & Cold Compress: Cold and hot compresses can be utilized to ease your joint pain effectively. Heat compression decreases the pain, increases the blood circulation and relaxes the swollen joints and muscles. On the other hand, cold therapy lessens the inflammation of the affected joint. Place hot and cold towel alternatively on the affected area to achieve immediate relief from persistent pain.

3. Fenugreek: Ingest a teaspoon of ground fenugreek seeds and drink a glass of lukewarm water. Fenugreek has anti inflammatory and antioxidant properties that make it effective for joint pains.Follow this remedy every morning on a regular basis to achieve optimal results.

4. Turmeric: Add a pinch of turmeric and a teaspoon of honey in a glass of lukewarm water and drink this solution on a regular basis for a week. Turmeric contains anti inflammatory and antioxidant properties, which makes it an excellent remedy for treating joint pains.

5. Apple cider vinegar: Add 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar and a little honey to a cup of lukewarm water. Drink this solution twice daily, before your meals. Apple cider vinegar has alkalizing effect, which makes it an effective remedy to remove the toxins that are responsible for causing joint pain.

6. Healthy diet: A balanced diet that comprises a lot of green leafy vegetables and fresh seasonal fruits is good for your joints. The uncontrolled intake of fatty food, dairy products, and high sodium diet must be avoided in order to avoid arthritis and joint pain.

Prevention is better than cure and in order to follow that it is always beneficial to get your complete body check up done from time to time.
