I am 20 years old I have problem with my nipples as they are projected out in dress. I do not prefer padded braziers as they are not health friendly. Request you to advise me on what measures other than that (padded one) to be taken to avoid it completely so that I am able to wear any type of dress.

Non-adhesive little silicone covers called: Dimr’s are the solution for u. They are smooth, easy to put in any bra, and you can avoid padded bra.

I had c sec 5 months back. I have lost all the pregnancy weight and back to my previous pregnancy weight but belly is still there almost 38 inches in size. How can I get it settled?

M.B.S.(HOMEO), MD - Homeopathy
Homeopath, Visakhapatnam
After a cesarean section, it might feel impossible to get your body back into pre-baby shape. But take heart, a little dedication and patience goes a long way in getting your body back. While pregnancy itself takes a toll on your pelvic floor and abdominal muscles, c-sections cause even more stress to this area. Due to this, extra care and dedication is needed to rebuild and restore the belly. While it may take more work, it is not impossible to lose the post-c-section pooch. To Get Rid of a Belly Pouch From a C-Section: Drink plenty of water--Love to Know recommends at least 75 ounces of water per day for a 150-pound woman. Water is advantageous for c-section patients because it helps to reduce bloating by moving bloat-causing sodium through the body. Water also helps you to feel more full, which can reduce the tendency to overeat. If you had a c-section in the last six months, after your doctor's okay, begin with only one or two abdominal strengthening exercises before slowly building up to more. If it has been more than six months, begin abdominal strengthening at a beginner's level and progress slowly. Ensure you use proper form to help promote your healing and progress. Some women report that their abdomen feels differently afterwards, due to scar tissue and nerve damage. If this is you, it may take longer to find the ability to contract and utilize these areas of your abdomen. Do not do sit-ups, curl ups, or crunches until after your doctor has given you approval.

Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello. Hypothyroidism causes weight gain. So, continue taking the medicines you are already on. For reducing weight, cut down the intake of fatty, fried, junk, unhealthy food, avoid brassica group of family vegeatables (cauliflower, cabbage, broccoli, etc.), take 12-15 glasses of water, take enough of sound sleep (very important), do exercises daily Take homoeopathic Rx - Schwabe's Phytolacca Berry tablets/ one tablet thrice a day daily for 1 month. After that revert me back. You will see the difference with out any side effects slowly and gradually (need to have patience).

Hello, your tsh and prolactin levels are high, they need to be controlled first and then amh levels are low. You can be given a trial of ovulation induction with natural intercourse but considering ovarian reserve is low, the success rates may be low.

IUI: This is Important for ALL Women to Know

IUI: This is Important for ALL Women to Know

What all women should know about IUI

Intrauterine insemination or IUI is a form of artificial insemination that involves the sperm being placed inside the uterus of a woman for bringing about fertilization. The aim of this procedure is to enhance the number of sperms that successfully reach the fallopian tubes and fertilize an egg, thereby increasing your chances of getting pregnant. Depending on the cause of your infertility, the procedure can be synchronized with fertility drugs or your ovulation cycle.

When should you go for IUI?

While reduced sperm mobility or a low sperm count may be the reason this procedure is opted for, there are certain conditions that may cause you and your partner to opt for IUI:

  • If the cause of your infertility doesn't have any medical explanation
  • Problems with ejaculation affecting the release of semen
  • Problems associated with cervical mucus can hinder the journey of the sperm from the vagina to the fallopian tubes
  • Scarring of the cervix due to past surgical procedures, rendering the sperm unable to enter the uterus

At the same time, the procedure is not recommended for women who suffer from:

  • A disease of the fallopian tubes
  • Past episodes of pelvic infections
  • Mild to severe endometriosis (a condition wherein the womb's lining grows outside it)

What happens after IUI?

The procedure takes up only a few minutes of your time and causes very little discomfort. Following the procedure, you'll be told to lie on your back for a short period of time, after which you can get back to your normal routine the same day. You can expect instances of light spotting, which will go away after two days.

My Sister (35years) has continuous periods from past two months, she got the scan done and everything is fine. They gave her tablets for hormonal changes. Till she took tablets it was fine but bleeding stated again when she stopped the tablets. Is it because of strain because she has to travel to different places in india due to the nature of her work.

Homeopath, Faridabad
Hi. Has she gone for hormonal assay? Can you share the reports? If everything is normal, may be due to general weakness or excessive exertion, this is happening. Ask her to take homoeopathic medicines - Five Phos./ thrice daily and Alfaalfa Tonic (with ginseng)/ thrice daily - both for 1 month. Tell her to eat iron-rich foods: Red meat Pork Poultry Seafood Beans Dark green leafy vegetables, such as spinach Dried fruit, such as raisins and apricots Iron-fortified cereals, breads and pastas Peas You can enhance your body's absorption of iron by drinking citrus juice or eating other foods rich in vitamin C at the same time that you eat high-iron foods. Vitamin C in citrus juices, like orange juice, helps your body to better absorb dietary iron. Vitamin C is also found in: Broccoli Grapefruit Kiwi Leafy greens Melons Oranges Peppers Strawberries Tangerines Tomatoes Apart from the diet correction, Exercising is an important part of our life! We know but still ignore it. But it keeps you active, keeps well-toned muscles, increases the body's circulation, releases stress/ stops release of stress-hormone from the body! So, when we can maintain our health by slightly altering diet and exercising, why would we need medication then? Let her implement this in her life and give her status feedback to me soon..Bye!

Mongolian spots are just hyperpigmented spots in newborns which may persist as birth marks. Isolated spots are not hereditary, nor related to any pregnancy disorder. Since you are unable to conceive for last 5 years, it is time you went for HSG test together with semen test of your partner.

The Science of Hygiene

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
The Science of Hygiene
All of us are taught about hygienic living and this subject should be included as a chapter in the curriculum of every school. There are many different kinds of hygiene.

Respiratory hygiene: This is important to prevent cross infection, specifically, from flu and related respiratory illness. One should keep a distance of minimum 3 ft, from a person who is coughing, sneezing or singing. Most respiratory particles are more than 5 microns in size and do not travel a distance of more than 3 ft. This respiratory hygiene, however, will not prevent transmission of the tuberculosis bacteria, which are less than 5 microns and keep circulating in the area.

Hand hygiene: This is the fundamental principle for any disease prevention and the catch phrase is “before and after”, i.e. one should wash hands before and after eating food, touching any infected material, seeing a patient or after normal evacuation of stool in the morning.

Food hygiene: This means maintaining hygiene at home while cutting, serving and eating food. While cutting a vegetable, the surface or the cutting board should be clean and hygienic including the knife, hands, water, utensils etc. If that hygiene is not possible, follow the formula of ‘boil it, heat it, peel it, cook it or forget it’. This means that any food which has been boiled, heated or peeled is safe for eating. Peeling means removing the skin of a fruit such as banana or oranges.

Water hygiene: This involves drinking safe water, safe drinking glass, proper washing of glass, not washing multiple glasses in the same utensil and picking up glasses properly. People often try to pick up four glasses of water at the same time with one finger in each glass.

Sexual hygiene: This involves washing local areas before and after sexual contact.

Body hygiene: This involves 16 upchars, as mentioned in mythology. Out of these 16 basic steps, some are related to body hygiene and they involve washing feet first and then hands followed by mouth and finally the body. Washing of the feet is the most important as they are the ones which carry infections into one’s house.

Cleaning of mouth is cleaning the teeth with one finger, gums with two fingers, tongue with three fingers and palate with thumb.

Abhishekam or the snana of the body involves multiple steps. Ancient steps have been washing the body with milk water (rose water etc.) followed by rubbing with curd (soap), honey (moisturizers), ghee (oil), sugar (the drying agent) and finally with milk water again. This facilitates natural bathing and not dependent on soap.

Nail hygiene: This is also a very important hygiene, especially for food handlers, because they are responsible for causation of water and food disease. It is important that they be given typhoid vaccines and de-worming tablets every three months.

Another important hygiene to be observed at our homes is that of the servants or the help. They are often provided soap at the start of the month and they are supposed to use that bar of soap for a month. If by any chance, they lose that soap in 2-3 weeks’ time, they are apprehensive in asking the owners for soap. As a result, they may wash their hands without soap for the next 2-3 weeks, which includes washing of hands in morning.

Is sanitary pads can be used after its expiry date or on some sanitary pads no expiry date is mentioned. So let me clear this.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Sanitary pads are not supposed to be sterile like medical syringes etc, so if they have crossed the expiry date, they could be used. But as a precaution, why not use a fresh pack? or one withing the expiry period. You may call the company's help line to know more of the pads in question. Home made pads can also be used if money is the concern about using pads beyond their expiry date.

This may happen due to hormonal changes. Homoeopathy has good treatment for your problem without adverse effects. The medicine acts internally and gradually the lump will be dissolved. Take homoeopathic medicine phytolacca 200 once daily for 10 days.
