I am having infection in groin area from last 6 months. It spread wide fastly. Can you help me about this?
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Your description is very vague and scanty so it is difficult to give exact advise. However, the common cause of infection in groin are is fungal origin. Which tends to cause severe itching plus maculo-papular lesions. These will also spread to surrounding area. You may have to use systemic antifungal drugs as well as local applications. Thanks.

Dietary Tips to Prevent Anaemia in Pregnant Women

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS, DGO
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Dietary Tips to Prevent Anaemia in Pregnant Women

Your body goes through drastic changes when you are pregnant. Your body makes more blood during pregnancy; for instance, prior to pregnancy, your body made approximately 5 litres of blood, but now it produces 7 to 8 litres of it.

Producing excess red blood cells requires haemoglobin, which in turn requires plenty of folate, iron and vitamin B12. If there is a deficiency in any of these requirements, you might develop anaemia.

Anaemia is a condition, which is characterized by a lack of red blood cells in the body. The risks of becoming anaemic during pregnancy include:

  1. Being extremely fatigued
  2. Miscarriages, premature birth, or low birth-weight
  3. The baby can inherit anaemia from the mother
  4. The child can have certain developmental delays
  5. Postpartum depression (post-childbirth depression)

How it can be prevented?
To prevent such risks, it is important to implement the proper diet. Here are some dietary tips to prevent anaemia during pregnancy:

1. Consume iron-rich foods: Foods that provide you with the best source of iron are 

  • Poultry and eggs
  • Dark green and leafy vegetables (for example: spinach, broccoli and kale)
  • Seeds and nuts
  • Beans and lentils
  • Tofu
  • Beetroot
  • Ripe bananas

2. Don't forget the supplements: Foods are great sources of the nutrients you require, but they may be lacking at times. Ask your doctor for supplements like vitamin, folic acid and iron supplements mostly. Consuming supplements before pregnancy can go a long way in preventing anaemia.

3. Folic acid is important: Folic acid is very important for pregnant women. You must consume 400 milligrams of it to prevent anaemia and birth defects in babies. Foods that are rich in folic acid include:

  • Beans
  • Muesli
  • Broccoli
  • Brussel sprouts
  • Asparagus

4. Vitamins are crucial: Vitamin C helps in iron absorption which boosts haemoglobin production. Some foods rich in vitamin C include

  • Citrus fruits
  • Strawberries
  • Kiwis
  • Tomatoes
  • Bell peppers

5. Be vigilant while cooking: Sometimes while cooking foods, the wrong method can strip them of their iron content. So be careful not to fry, boil or stew such foods too much. Certain foods are best consumed raw; read the labels properly if in doubt.

6. Abstain from certain habits: Alcohol, tea, cigarette and coffee hinder iron absorption. So stop consuming them if you are trying to conceive or have conceived.

Hi, This vaccine does not have any side effects. This vaccination works by making the body produce antibodies against the HPV virus which causes cervical cancer. These antibodies protect the body from an HPV infection, by fighting the virus when it attacks the cervix, thus offers protection against cervical cancer. This vaccine should be gien as early as possible in adolescent girls as this is when the best immune response to the vaccine is achieved.

Infertility - A Complete Guide!

Infertility - A Complete Guide!

The term infertility in females explains a wide range of disorders but in order to simplify things, lets’ just say, infertility in women is a condition in which women are unable to conceive. There are numerous reasons that can be responsible for this situation and although some are preventable or curable, most others have no specific cure or treatment.

Ovulatory Disorders

One of the most common reasons for infertility is an ovulatory disorder. Almost 30 percent of female infertility is caused due to this reason. 70 percent of such infertility is treatable with drugs such as Reprones/Menogan and Clomiphene. Here is a list of causes of failed ovulation-

  1. Disruption in the complex hormonal balance.

  2. Ovaries fail to produce mature eggs. Polycystic ovarian syndrome is the most common disorder causing this problem. This syndrome has reduced FSH production and increased production of LH, Oestrogen and Testosterone. Suppressed FSH production may cause the partial development of ovarian follicles.

  3. Hypothalamus may malfunction thereby causing the pituitary to malfunction, thus losing control over the process or FSH and LH production.

  4. Physical damage to the ovaries by multiple surgeries or due to the formation of cysts.

  5. A rare case of premature menopause.

  6. Problems of the follicle.

  7. Poor functioning of fallopian tubes

Diseases or disorders in the tube have been another major reason of infertility in women. Almost 25 percent of women infertility occurs due to this reason. Although treatments exist, success rates of the treatments are as high as 30 percent. The causes of tube damage may be as follows-

  1. Infection caused by bacteria or viruses

  2. Abdominal diseases like colitis and appendicitis

  3. Previous pelvic or abdominal surgeries.

  4. A condition called ectopic pregnancy which occurs in the tube, and even if very carefully but successfully overcome, may leave permanent damage.

  5. Rare congenital defects in which women may be born with tube anomalies.

Endometriosis

This is the condition where the endometrium expands excessively thereby preventing individuals from getting pregnant. This affects almost 10 percent of the population of infertile women. Almost 40 percent of women with endometriosis are infertile.

Other Factors

Other additional factors may include:

  1. Abnormal uterus

  2. Congenital diseases

  3. Behavioural factors like personal habits, lifestyle and health factors.

  4. Exercise and diet- extremely overweight or underweight women may have problems in conceiving.

  5. Cigarette smoking reduces the chances of conceiving by one-third.

  6. Alcohol increases the chances of birth defects.

Hence, pregnancy is tougher than it might really seem. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

Once you penetrate vagina with your penis it is never sure whether sperms have entered it or not you can not confirm it by any method only thing is if she misses her next periods then check her utine for pregnancy test to confirm the report.

Hi.I've been taking Venlift OD 75 mg and Trika SR 0.5 mg. I've just conceived. Is it advisable to take these medicines during pregnancy ? If not.What to do ?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Venlift is FDA pregnancy category C i.E. Use only if clearly needed and benefit outweighs potential risk. Even if it has to be stopped it cant be stopped abruptly. So consult ur psychiatrist regarding it. Trika has been assigned to pregnancy category D by the FDA. An increased risk of congenital malformations in humans has been suggested with use of trika. So definitely need to stop trika.

hi. beta most likely they are fibroadenomas which is not a cancer. if size is big (>2cm) then it may require surgical removal else they may also dissolve with time. i advise you get one ultrasound of breast followed by FNAC to confirm diagnosis and know the size.

Less Libido in Females - Causes Behind it!

Less Libido in Females - Causes Behind it!

Loss of sexual desire is more common in women than in men. As many as 3 in 10 women have reduced or limited sexual interest in any kind of sexual activity. While the medical term for this problem is Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder (HSDD), it is generally understood as a loss of libido.

Following are the causes of less libido in females:

1. Hormonal Disorders:

  • Dryness of the vagina and pain during sexual intercourse may affect sexual drive both mentally and physically.
  • After menopause, drop in the count of testosterone hormone also affects sexual drive which can result in loss of libido.
  • With advancing age, the level of androgens decrease, and hence results in a lack of sexual desire.

2. Lifestyle Disorders:

  • In some of the cases, lack of emotional support in a relationship plays a significant role in the loss of libido. Post baby 'coolness' may also act as a driving force for loss in libido.
  • In today's era, changing lifestyle is drastically affecting our lives. Following an unhealthy lifestyle may result in increased weight that may affect self-image, and indirectly may also affect the sexual desire.
  • Stress and job, family pressure and exhaustion may also influence sexual desire of a woman.

3. Medical Disorders:

  • There are conditions such as endometriosis, fibroids and thyroid disorders that may have a negative impact on the sexual drive of a woman.
  • Certain medicines such as antidepressants, oral contraceptives, and medicines that lower blood pressure may also negatively impact the sexual drive in women.

4. Psychological factors:

  • Increasing cases of depression, anxiety, frustration, stress is also an important cause of loss of libido in the contemporary society.
  • After childbirth, new moms tend to suffer from lack of sleep, insufficient lubrication of the vagina and exhaustion, which may affect her sexual desire. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a sexologist.
