Preferably pain killers (antispasmodics have to be avoided as they will interfere with the abortive process unless pain is very severe and intolerable. You can take antibiotics for 5 days. Also consult your gynaec after 14 days to ensure that the process is complete. Asonography scan will be useful.

PCOD has no relationship to pain during period. For that meet Gynaecologist for treatment. Depending on how is PCOD now you may need treatment for pregnancy.

Hi sir/ mam I am 24 years girl, I have less boobs I want to improve my breast size, so tell me the tips.

DGO, MBBS
Sexologist,
Small breasts may be due to hormonal imbalance, genetic, poor nutrition, thyroid hormone problem. Take diet containing fats and soya products. Massage breast from below upwards and from side inwards using some coconut oil. Change your posture by standing straight and pushing your chest forward will make your breasts look bigger. Exercising the muscles beneath your breasts will make them appear more rounded, it can be done by push-ups done daily for few times increasing gradually. In case you want a medicine suggestion from me now then ask at private question.

Not possible and illegal to know sex of baby. As baby's growth is more check your blood sugar. For baby's position get it checked up again at 32 weeks of pregnancy to decide whether ecv is to be tried or not.

What is the symptoms of a woman get pregnant in starting stage, how we know or she know.
Pls explain.
Most important symptom is missed period. There r other symptoms but all of them appear 2 weeks after the missed period. Those r nausea, vomiting, breast fullness and increased urination. If you have a missed period then you should get urine pregnancy test done at home after 7 days of missed period to confirm it.

Hi looks like you have problem in your breasts. First of all for breast sonography that is ultrasound and also go for blood test for serum prolactin, don't worry it is curable, even if there is a growth in the breast it will be harmless like a fibroadenoma.

It is best to avoid unprotected sex. However if the partner is known, and hiv negative, then chances of you getting hiv is low.

No, pregnancy induced vomitting does not start within 24 hours of conception. The vomiting is related to your stress or because of i-pill.

If you are overweight then I would strongly advice you to try and reduce your weight by a combination of diet and exercise. Also I suggest you get a Thyroid function test done as a minimum. You can take low dose pills like Femilon to regularise your cycles for 4-5 months.

Diabetes and Cancer: The New Epidemic?

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist, Delhi
Diabetes and Cancer: The New Epidemic?

There was an era where we had deadly infections like plague and polio causing death of thousands of people. We still have occasional outbreak of swine flu, but by and large, infections are quite controlled. The new killer diseases are caused because of the lifestyle we have adapted and the damage we have done to the environment. High intake of processed foods, artificial chemicals in our foods, sedentary lifestyle with very minimal to no physical activity, couching over the computers; the list is quite long.

All these have led to diseases like diabetes and cancer that were not so common about say few decades ago:

Detailed observation has revealed that both these new epidemiologic diseases have a close correlation. There are factors, which induce diabetes and diabetes in turn and in some cases, diabetes inducing agents, can cause cancer also. It has also been observed that mortality is severely increased if diabetic patients are diagnosed with cancer. There are two types of diabetes. While type 1 is mostly hereditary, type 2 is lifestyle induced and the age at which this is being diagnosed is taking a severe plunge. Adolescents and teenagers are being diagnosed for diabetes. Cancer, on the other hand, is of various types (leukaemia, melanoma, myeloma, etc.) and can affect various organs (lung, breast, prostate, stomach, liver, etc.).

The medical community is yet to decipher the disease pattern of both these conditions. While there is no definite correlation between diabetes and all types of cancer, some types of cancer are definitely correlated with a definite reason identified, pancreatic and liver cancer for instance. The high amounts of insulin that diabetic patients are exposed to causes changes in liver and pancreas including fatty liver and cirrhosis, here the incidence of cancer is higher. The linkage is not very clear in lung and intestinal cancers and also there is no link between prostate cancer and diabetes.

Diabetes is considered as a state of chronic inflammation and leads to conditions like hyperinsulinemia (higher levels of insulin in the blood) hyperglycemia (higher levels of sugar in the blood). These are believed to aggravate the neoplastic process of cancer formation, thereby inducing cancer at a greater pace and also increasing the mortality rates.

The following are risk factors that are applicable to both age, physical activity, diet, obesity, drinking and smoking. It is also possible that onset of one can be followed by the other. As noted earlier, more detailed research is awaited to establish a definite linkage, but the correlation cannot be ignored at all.

Both these new epidemics are here to stay and since they have a common set of factors, we need to work on ways to contain them.

At 20, you have taken a lot too many antibiotics for uti. 65 days is a long time to suffer from uti. I hope a culture test & ultrasound has been done to rule out kidney stones. If not get it done now. May be culture test shows no bacterial infection and you are taking heavy antibiotics for no reason. Take cystone (himalaya) 2 tabs every day & drink lots of water. Get back here with reports of tests advised.

Dear Patient, The only time a woman can conceive is during the ‘fertile window’ of the menstrual cycle. This window will vary depending on the individual’s cycle, however timing intercourse in the 6 days leading up to and including ovulation is the window with highest chance of conception. Ovulation happens about two weeks before the next expected period. So if your partners menstrual cycle is 28 days, then the day of ovulation would be around day 14. In that day the most fertile day for intercourse would be 12, 13 and 14 th day. The better way to plan is to use a ovulation kit which is available OTC. She can start using it after 8th day of the menses and then check every morning for ovulation.
