I am not getting periods from 5 months. No other menopause symptoms except fsh showing high. Tsh is 10and using thyronorm from 2months of 75 mcg. Having palpitations and gaining weight. Whats my problem.

The culprit is uncontrolled hypothyroidism and insufficient estrogen. We have self made specialised medicine prepared for complete management of thyroid. It includes correction of weight, stopping hair fall and alleviating other symptoms such as weakness, lethargy, increased sleep, infertility etc. This is how this treatment minimizes dependence on artificial hormones and stimulates thyroid gland to produce it's own natural hormone. At the same time, this treatment increases metabolic rate thereby helping maintain good weight over long term.

Vaginal discharge is a whitish liquid that is produced in the uterus and is discharged by way of vagina. It is a normal process and it generally begins in a girl life when she is due to attain puberty or prior to menstruation. It is the nature’s way of keeping the vagina healthy and lubricated. Women experience vaginal discharge all through their lives though it reduces after they reach the menopausal stage. Normal vaginal discharge helps to keep the vagina clean and healthy. It does not have a bad odour or you can say that it has no smell at all and you may see the traces of discharge on your under garment. It is normal for vaginal discharge to increase under certain conditions like- A few days before menstruation During pregnancy During ovulation Hormonal treatment Sexual excitement Emotional stress If you notice any putrid ssmell in discharge or it iss acrid or frequent gushing out without any stoppage then it is a thing of concern otherwise just relax and wait.

Hello- Attaining pregnancy is not so troublesome if both the partners are healthy. It seems that both of you needs to be rule out of any abnormality in your reproductive system. Go for a semen analysis for your husband and a pelvic ultrasound for you and share reports for further guidance.

Hello- White or milky discharge is known as leucorrhoea and the major cause of it is mal nourishment of the body by the consumption of diet that is not healthy for your body. Follow these tips- 1) Avoid spicy diet and increase dairy products in your meals. 2) Take a sound sleep of at least 9-10 hour a day. 3) Use Shesham tree leave bark powder and use it 1/2 tsp twice. 4) Wash your vagina with alum (Fitkari) water daily.

My wife once pregnant and underwent d&c after that she didn't conceive yet will I need to undergo semen analysis?

MD-Ayurveda, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

My wife once pregnant and underwent d&c after that she didn't conceive yet will I need to undergo semen analysis?
Hello- D & C is a blind and a very hash procedure done to a very soft and delicate organ uterus. D & C scraps out the unwanted material but also damages the inner fertile layer (endometrium) of uterus. This is why many couples fail to get conceive after this procedure. Assuming that you had a chance of pregnancy before , the semen analysis of your husband might be normal. The only thing you have to workout is repair and regenerate the fertile endometrium of the uterus. Start herbal uterine tonics and medicines to improve your chances.Good luck.

Any bleeding during pregnancy is alarming. You should visit your gynaec to get yourself checked. If bleeding is coming in urine then you should get urine examination done for infection. Also an ultrasound is needed to see if there is any kidney stone. Keep drinking lots of water and liquids like juices, tea, soups, coconut water etc.

Ideally to confirm whether there is actual tubal block or not; Laparoscopy should be done. If there is a block which cannot be opened; the only option for conception is IVF.

I think you dont believe in foreplay and just concentrate on sex.Firstly make your wife comfortable to have sex.There must be a strong bonding in your relations.Sex is not just a play of sexual organs but it is the collection of many different aspects of a HUSBAND-WIFE or a MALE- FEMALE RELATIONSHIP. 1.Love your wife like she is the most preciouss creature in this world 2.Try to find out her likingss and fulfill them 3.Dont try to have sex against her wish 4.Try to find out what is going on in her mind. 5.Dont speak loudly in front of her or dont try todominate her in any deciion making talk going on in your family 6.Make her feel like she is also an important member of family and no decision is final without her. 7.Go for a atleast 10-15 minutes minutes morning or evening walk all alone. 8.If you find her wrong anywhere dont scold her but tell her that she is wrong in the most lovable way.Dont argue. 9.Lasstly after implementation of all thesepoints for one month,concentrate on foreplay for atleat 5 minutes before having sex. 10.Your wife must feel like you are the one who she wass looking for throughout her life.

Effects and Diagnosis of Herniated Disc

Effects and Diagnosis of Herniated Disc

A Herniated disc also known as a slip disc or prolapsed disc and it refers to the problem where one of the discs located in between the bones of the vertebrae(backbone) gets damaged and stacks itself upon the nerves. The tender inner portion of the disc gets protruded over the outer ring. Herniated disc causes severe neck pain and back pain. It occurs when the outer ring gets weak and tears down. The most common symptoms include pain and numbness, especially on one side of the body. The pain extends down to the arms and legs. It worsens during nighttime. The muscles become weak. Overweight people are likely to have this disease, as the discs carry extra weight. Old people are vulnerable to a slip disc.

Effects of Herniated Disc:

  1. An untreated case of Herniated disc may cause permanent damage to the nerves.
  2. In certain cases, a Herniated disc is capable of cutting off nerve impulses to the "caudal equine"nerves, present in the lower back and legs. This leads to loss of bladder control or bowel control.
  3. Saddle anaesthesia is another long-term effect. Nerves are compressed by the slip disc, causing loss of sensation in the inner portions of your thighs, the back of your legs and surrounding the rectum region.
  4. Symptoms may improve or worsen.

Diagnosis of Herniated Disc:
Treatment or diagnosis of Herniated disc or slipped disc can be either conservative or surgical in nature. The nature of treatment is determined according to your discomfort level and the kind of pain you are experiencing, or how much the disc has slipped out.

  1. The pain caused by Herniated disc can be relieved by undertaking an exercise schedule, which includes stretching and strengthening the spine and its surrounding muscles.
  2. A physiotherapist should be appointed for recommending the types of exercises.
  3. Taking pain relievers also soothes the pain.
  4. Stronger medicines prescribed by doctors include-muscle relaxants, narcotics to deal with the pain, medicines for nerve pain such as "gabapentin"  or "duloxetine".
  5. In case of the symptoms not subsiding within a span of six weeks, a surgery may be recommended by your doctor. The surgeon may have to remove the damaged part of the disc. This surgery is called a microdiscectomy.

Symptoms, Causes and Treatment of Gallstones in Women

Symptoms, Causes and Treatment of Gallstones in Women

Gallstones are bits of solid material that may be formed in the gall bladder. The gallbladder is a little organ located under the liver. You won't not know you have them until they've block your bile duct, causing pain that will need immediate medical intervention, and even hospitalisation in some cases.They may comprise of cholesterol, salt, or bilirubin, which consists of red platelets. Gallstones vary in size. They can be as little as a grain of sand or as even the size of an apricot in many cases.

Women are more likely to develop gallstones than men. Read on to know more:

Causes: There are a number of causes for this condition, especially in women. These causes are as follows:

  1. Intake of anti-conception medication pills, hormone trade treatment for menopause side effects, or pregnancy
  2. Fasting
  3. Malfunctioning of the gall bladder
  4. High cholesterol levels
  5. Gallstones may be created when there is excessive amount of cholesterol in the bile discharged by the liver. This bile normally separates the cholesterol and helps in the normal functioning of the liver and other digestive organs of the body.
  6. Bilirubin: Bilirubin is a substance created when your liver wrecks old red platelets. A few conditions, like cirrhosis of the liver and certain blood issues causes the liver to create more bilirubin than it ought to. This can lead to complicated conditions like gallstones.
  7. Bile: Your gallbladder needs to exhaust bile to be sound. In the event that it discharges its bile content, the bile turns out to be excessively thick which causes stones to shape.
  8. Weight: Being overweight or underweight can also cause a malfunction which can lead to the appearance of such stones. The diet also has a bearing in such cases.

Symptoms:

  1. Fever
  2. A yellowish tint in your skin or eyes, which can demonstrate jaundice
  3. Sickness or retching
  4. Clay coloured stools
  5. Pain in the right upper quadrant of your stomach area
  6. Nausea
  7. Vomiting
  8. Other digestive issues

Treatment:

Numerous individuals with gallstones may be asked to go through surgery to remove the gallbladder. These include the following:

  1. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy: The specialist passes instruments, a light, and a camera through a few little cuts in the midsection.
  2. Open cholecystectomy: The specialist makes bigger cuts in the belly to expel the gallbladder. You may have to spend a couple days in the hospital after the operation.
  3. Without getting operated: If you have a mild condition and your specialist feels you shouldn't have an operation, he may recommend medicines like chenodiol, ursodiol, or both. These medications work by dissolving cholesterol stones. One may experience mild loose motions as a side effect.

Please see that some herbal procedures strengthen the pelvicpelvic/ coccygeal nerves (apaan vayu vitiatiin correction). It involves genitalia as well. For gaining sex power and addressing earlier wetting our herbal combo for female strength may be opted that contains ashoka, rodhra, pushyanug etc for few weeks. It controls leucorrhoea, regulates m. C. Too. Maintains ph of vagina. Herbal wash with combo is also very useful.

Hello, You can opt for antifibrinolytics for controlling your bleeding. Please also get a per speculum examination done to rule out cervicitis and erosions and also an ultrasound pelvis to look for an organic cause like polyp besides fibroids.
