What You Need To Know About Uterine Prolapse

Crest Affiliated Course in Advanced Reproductive Techniques, MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Ghaziabad
What You Need To Know About Uterine Prolapse

The condition of uterine prolapse takes place when the floor muscles (and sometimes, ligaments) of the pelvis region gets stretched overly and then gradually weakens, thus becoming unable to provide adequate support to the uterus. This often leads to the protrusion or the slipping down of the uterus out of the vaginal opening. Though it can affect women of any age, it usually happens to women after menopause, especially those who have already had deliveries out of the vagina.

Causes
The weakening of the muscles in the pelvic region is the chief cause that leads to uterine prolapse. Other causes include:

  1. Natural estrogen loss, especially after menopause
  2. Gravity effects
  3. Supportive tissues of pregnancy and childbirth being damaged
  4. Constant straining over time
  5. Excessive smoking
  6. Improper weight - obesity or being overweight

Symptoms:

There are a number of varieties of uterine prolapse, of varying severity. In case of moderate to severe uterine prolapse, the symptoms tend to be more pronounced and include a number of prominent symptoms.

  1. Protruding tissue from the vagina
  2. Problems in bowel regulation
  3. Increased lower back pains
  4. Increased urinary problems, such as leakage or increased retention
  5. Looseness in the vagina, which may affect your sex life

Usually, these are symptoms which become pronounced in the morning and eventually worsens through the course of the day.

Risk Factors:
The major risk factors that may increase the risk of being afflicted by uterine prolapse are:

  1. Multiple pregnancies
  2. Increasing age
  3. Past problems relating to the pelvis - including surgeries or accidents
  4. General weakness in tissues 
  5. Frequently lifting heavy weights

Additionally, there are a number of conditions, such as chronic constipation, obesity or other pulmonary diseases, that may apply excess strain on tissues and muscles of the pelvic region, that accentuates your chances of being afflicted by uterine prolapse.

First undergo examination by some gynecologist. If its just rashes due to pads then you can take following care 1. Use cotton pads 2. Keep the area clean. 3. Drink plenty of water. 4. Always use cotton undergarments only. Rest guidance depends on your final diagnosis, you can get back to me after you visit your gynec if you want homeopathic assistance.

The Top 10 tips for Living with PCOS

The top 10 tips for living with PCOS

Polycystic ovarian syndrome is often caused by small cysts growing on the ovaries. Although harmless, these cysts lead to hormone imbalances.

Living with PCOS can sometimes be a daunting task. Many of the side effects caused by the disease such as adult acne, infertility, weight gain, and excessive facial or body hair can be difficult to control. Additionally, the emotions associated with presenting ones self to the public when facing such challenges—and an overall lack of self-esteem—can, at times, seem impossible to 
But women living with pcos who adopt positive lifestyles can overcome the symptoms caused by this disease. Here are ten tips for living with, and managing, the symptoms caused by pcos. 

1. Adopt healthy eating habits.
All women with pcos can benefit from adopting healthy eating habits. By eating a diet low in carbohydrates and refined sugars you can help reverse the imbalances of glucose and insulin in your body that cause pcos symptoms to flair up. 

2. Fit exercise into your daily routine.
Although everyone should find time to exercise, it is especially important for women with pcos to fit some form of exercise into their daily routine. Whether it is a 20-minute walk, playing outside with your kids, or going to a pilates class, exercise has proven to boost metabolism and burn calories which helps to control insulin levels and, in turn, results in weight loss. Exercise can also help to stave off diabetes, a health risk for women in pcos.

3. Avoid stimulants.
Having a cup of coffee (or two or three …) has become such a part of our culture that giving it up may seem impossible. However, coffee and other stimulants cause increases in insulin production which have proven to have a negative impact on women with pcos. If you are serious about controlling your insulin levels, you really need to consider giving up that cup of joe.

4. Get regular physical exams.
Women with pcos have a greater risk of developing cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and some forms of cancer. They are also more likely to suffer from high blood pressure and/or high cholesterol. Meeting regularly with your doctor to monitor and treat these issues will help you stay healthy until the symptoms come under control through the adoption of healthy eating and exercise habits.

5. Relax.
Women with pcos are more prone towards experiencing depression and mood swings. They often find themselves emotionally frustrated when their own bodies seem to purposefully work against them. Whether dealing with weight issues or having difficulty conceiving, pcos can take a toll on your emotional well-being, so take a bubble bath, watch an old movie, or do something else that you really enjoy doing. It can make the biggest difference in how you feel on the inside.

6. Seek support networks.
Although it may feel like it, you are definitely not alone in your struggle with pcos. There are thousands of women out there who are experiencing the same symptoms and emotions that you are. Do not be shy. These are the women who will lift you up when you are feeling down. If you can’t find a group then start one and promote it online, in local newspapers, via flyers and at schools, college and health clubs.

7. Ask questions.
With pcos, there is no one size fits all solution to control the disease. Symptoms vary with each person so you really need to ask questions of your physicians and do research on your own to find a regimen that will work best for you.

8. Get help if you are depressed.
Pcos can make you feel melancholy, especially given the multitude of physical and emotional challenges that can develop as a result of this disease. If you are feeling more than a little sad and cannot shake the feeling of disillusionment associated with the condition, get help. The fact is you can live a positive life even when dealing with pcos. Getting help is the first step towards achieving that goal.

9. See a specialist.
As pcos gets more attention from physicians, the media and others, there are more and more treatment options being offered. For example, insulite laboratories of boulder, co has created a five step approach that incorporates nutraceuticals, nutrition, exercise, food addiction awareness and support networks to help reverse the symptoms caused by pcos. 

10. Maintain a positive attitude.
Maintaining a positive attitude is essential to realizing positive outcomes in any aspect of life. Be positive and create opportunities for yourself that can help you realize your dreams. Just because you have pcos does not mean you cannot live your best life!

How it cause what's the reason of herpes.
There is no cure for herpes. Antiviral medications can, however, prevent or shorten outbreaks during the period of time the person takes the medication. In addition, daily suppressive therapy (i. E. Daily use of antiviral medication) for herpes can reduce the likelihood of transmission to partners.

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome or PCOS is a common hormonal disorder, which occurs in almost every women aged 18 to 24. In PCOS, the level of male hormones that is androgens are more than normal limits. In other women it is present in smaller quantities. And increase in such levels, cause delay and disturbances with your menstrual cycle. The main cause of this disorder is however, not known, but it generally runs in genes. The symptoms start generally early after your menarche. Obesity is another factor which causes PCOS. 

Some of the signs and symptoms of PCOS are:

  • Irregular menstrual cycle
  • Obesity
  • Cysts in the ovaries
  • Infertility
  • Excess male hormones
  • Depression
  • Skin discolorations

Homeopathy focuses on treating and curing the main cause of PCOS and it is therefore one of the best alternatives. Given below are some of the best homeopathic medicines for the treatment of PCOS:

  1. Apis Mellifica: If you are suffering from PCOS with a stinging pain in the ovarian region, Apis Mellifica is one of the best homeopathic medicine for you. The pain is accompanied by tenderness over the abdomen and uterine region.
  2. Pulsatilla: You can take Pulsatilla if your periods are late and scanty. You usually feel thirst less. You also suffer from mood swings. You might feel happy at one moment and sad the very next moment. You may as well feel irritated.
  3. Sepia: Sepia is one of the homeopathic medicines in treating PCOS when pain bears down in the lower back and abdomen. Your periods are irregular, either too early or too late.
  4. Lachesis: If you have an aversion of wearing anything tight, Lachesis is a pretty good homeopathic remedy for you. Your periods can slow down your periods due to weak flow. The pain in the abdomen are relieved once your flow starts. Jealousy is another common symptom.
  5. Graphites: Graphites is one of the best homeopathic medicine if you have PCOS along with constipation. You generally have a stout build up. You feel chilly most of the time with a tearing pain in the stomach region.

Marrying in blood relations should be avoided. Consanguineous couples are at high risk of conceiving a child with a genetic disorder. It produces an increase of the various types of genetic disorders such as birth defects, mental retardation, deafness and blindness. It can create trouble for coming offspring so it is better to avoid it and prevent your up coming generation from diseases. Genetic counselling from a genetic counsellor should be done before the marriage, to find out the diseases that r running in the families and based on which risk of child being born with the same disease is calculated. There are no mandatory or standard pre-marital tests. However, it is a good idea to do some tests for anaemia, thyroid or sugar problems to check your general well being. Other tests would include blood grouping and rh factor, screening for thalassaemia, sickle cell anaemia, hepatitis, sexually transmitted diseases like syphilis and aids.

Perfect diet which contains iron, calcium, proteins, carbos, fats, green and other fibers is always good. A mix of varieties in home made food is always better instead of artificial supplements. Most important is whatever you eat, your digestion, assimilation and metabolism should be perfect. You should feel healthy appetite, have good excretion and good sleep in order to live healthy. Indian gooseberry powder, withania somnifera, tinospora cordifolia are simple herbs but when these herbs are chosen quality wise and are processed properly in combo with other required things, you get best results. For our lybrate community we offer customised packages on concessional rates. Pl write in confidence if you have any other problem or only need herbal quality combos to create resistance in body against diseases.

Hi. It would be better if you get your fibroid removed as it can be reason for your subfertilty, it can also cause abortions even if you concieve. There is no need of cyst removal as it is small and will disappear by itself. Looks like functional cyst.

She can not be pregnant if she had her periods after that and provided she did not have another intercourse after that. My suggestion is to always use protection during intercourse, not just to avoid pregnancy but also to prevent transmission of sexually transmitted diseases.
