Vaginal Discharge - Can IUDs Cause It?

MBBS, DNB - Obstetrics and Gynaecology

Vaginal Discharge - Can IUDs Cause It?

There are certain glands in the vaginal walls and uterine cervix of a woman, which cleanse the vagina by producing a small amount of fluid. This clear or milky white coloured vaginal discharge is normal for a healthy woman if it doesn’t smell unpleasant. But if you observe that the colour, consistency, odour or amount of your vaginal discharge differs from usual, it may indicate an infection or a disease.

Here are 6 common factors behind abnormal vaginal discharge.

1. Bacterial vaginosis
Bacterial vaginosis is a medical condition characterised by agray discharge, which has a lingering fish-like odour. Moreover, if you experience irritation and burning sensation in the vagina, which is increased by intercourse, it’s a strong indication of bacterial vaginosis.

2. Yeast Infection
It often happens that your vaginal area’s natural bacterial balance is disturbed due to certain factors such as use of antibiotics, decreased immunity, stress, uncontrolled diabetes or consumption of excessive sugary foods. This results in yeast overgrowth in the vagina, known as simply yeast infection or candidiasis. It’s characterised by a thick and whitish-grey discharge from the vagina.

3. Gonorrhoea
Caused by the bacteria Neisseria Gonorrhoea, this sexually transmitted disease (STD) is an infection, which causes vaginal discharge of an intense odour. Other symptoms of this disease include feeling of pain while urinating, chills, fever and irregular discharge of menstrual fluids. If left untreated, gonorrhoea can transform into a pelvic inflammatory disease and can even lead to infertility.

4. Genital Herpes
Genital herpes, a sexually transmitted disease (STD) that leads to formation of small watery blisters on the vaginal area, and causes irritation, itching and pain while having intercourse or urinating, may also be the cause of a vaginal discharge of watery texture.

5. Atrophic Vaginitis
After menopause, there’s a considerable decrease in oestrogen levels of the body along with the occurrence of changes in tissues of the vaginal cavity. This medical condition, known as atrophic vaginitis, can lead to a watery vaginal discharge, which can sometimes get bloody. Some other symptoms of this disease are vaginal inflammation and thinning or atrophy of tissues.

6. Infected IUD
In some situations, it may happen that the intrauterine device (IUD- a form of contraceptive) inserted in the body of a woman can get infected. This results in a purulent discharge (pus) from the vagina. Getting the IUD removed as soon as possible is the best thing to be done in this situation.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Importance of Antenatal Care

Gynaecologist, Gurgaon

Hello, I am Dr. Vidya Bisla, a consultant gynecologist practicing in Sector-15 Gurgaon. Today, we are going to discuss about the routine Antenatal care that is important in the first three months of pregnancy. Soon after knowing that you have missed your period you can do a pregnancy home test kit and if it shows two lines, that means its positive. From that point onwards you should be under the care of a qualified doctor. On your first visit, you will be prescribed some medicines which are important for the proper formation of the baby and a few tests will be recommended to you after a general check-up of your health.

After the confirmation of this, we do certain blood tests for your general health and also certain infections that are which are important from the pregnancy point of view which can affect the health of the mother and the baby, both like thyroid tests, thalassemia screening and certain viral infections which we do as routine for everybody and which should be done right in the first trimester at around 7 or 8 weeks so that in case there is a problem we can start the corrective treatment for that.

During pregnancy there going to be a lot of changes in your body. From outside, we may just see that the person is gaining weight but the internal physiological changes that the body has to undergo to adjust the growth of the pregnancy are also tremendous. For example, the total amount of blood also increases in the pregnant lady. So in case you have a certain fitness level, you are able to handle these changes very well. For people, who have been active before pregnancy, they can handle it more easily than persons who are not active. Still, whatever your physical activity was before, you can start a daily walk for at least 30 minutes at a normal pace where you are not breathless while talking and walking right from the day when you come to know that you are pregnant. So, after exercising, you need to watch your diet.

In diet the most important thing is that we have to take a nutritionally balanced diet. In the first three months of pregnancy the energy requirement does not increase but it has to be a balanced diet which gives you adequate amount of proteins, vitamins, minerals and carbohydrates to give you that energy to handle those changes occurring in your body. So, you can eat almost everything but there are certain foods which are known to contain chemicals which are harmful to pregnancy. Those should be avoided for example, Chinese food contains Ajinomoto. So you should avoid Chinese food. You can may be make it at home if you are fond of it without adding Ajinomoto to it. Then coffee which contains caffeine should be avoided in pregnancy.

Generally, cold drinks of all the colors are not good for a pregnant lady. So avoid those things in your diet. Junk food, because it won’t give you any minerals or vitamins, also should be avoided. Then, a handful of nuts in your daily intake of food is going to give you a lot of energy and minerals and proteins. So those are recommended for almost everybody. They will not harm the pregnancy in any way. There are a lot of myths associated with it but they are all false. Any self-medication should be strictly avoided in pregnancy because there are only few medicines which are safe in pregnancy which we recommend. So, whenever you see any doctor for any ailment you must always tell the doctor that I’m pregnant so he or she can take care of the medicines in that sense.

In case, you need any answer to any questions or queries, you can book an appointment through Lybrate.

Avoid exercises which can hinder the supply of oxygen to your baby. Scuba diving, mountain climbing and travelling to low altitude areas should be a complete no-no.

Causes and Symptoms of Nicotine Addiction

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, MBA (Healthcare)
Psychiatrist, Davanagere
Causes and Symptoms of Nicotine Addiction

Nicotine addiction or tobacco addiction refers to an acute dependence upon tobacco products primarily due to the presence of the nicotine drug. In other words, nicotine addiction refers to an inability to stop using tobacco products despite the knowledge and awareness that it is harmful to you. While nicotine only induces addiction, it is the presence of other substances in tobacco which makes it damaging and injurious to health.

Nicotine has the tendency to produce effects in the brain, both physical as well as mind altering, that give temporary satisfaction. This is precisely why people get hooked into the habit of tobacco consumption, which eventually leads to addiction. Unfortunately, stopping tobacco use immediately can also lead to several withdrawal symptoms, like agitation and restlessness.

Causes
The main reason why tobacco is so addictive is due to the fact that nicotine releases neurotransmitters such as dopamine in the reward centre of the brain, which in turn improves your mood and gives you temporary pleasure.

Causes of nicotine addiction can either be physical or behavioral, for instance situations or feelings, which make you crave for tobacco. These include:

  1. Specific times during the day, say after every meal or during breaks at work
  2. While defecating
  3. While drinking alcohol
  4. Stressful or depressive situations
  5. At the sight or smell of a burning cigarette
  6. Peer pressure
  7. While driving

Symptoms
Symptoms of nicotine addiction include:

  1. You are unable to quit smoking despite frequent attempts.
  2. You experience withdrawal symptoms after attempting to quit.
  3. You continue to smoke despite the awareness that it is injurious to your health.
  4. You forego social as well as recreational activities because of your need to smoke.
