Your acne problem can be helped by combined dose oral cyclical pills taken under guidance of a gynae. Regular periods will restart too. Keep taking thyronorm if your tsh was high. Try to lose weight if you are overweight.

I have prolonged bleeding from 25 days. Diagnosis done found uterine polyp of size 4.4cm long and 9 mm thick. Pls suggest the best.

The cause of bleeding is the uterine polyp. And hence unless the polyp is removed, the bleeding will continue. Go to a gynecologist and get the d&c polypectomy done. They wills end the removed polyp for examination, and the treatment will depend on the report most polyps are benign (non cancerous) and do not recur if treatment is given. The doctor may prescribe you ocpills for 3 cycles or preogesterone for 3 cycles to stop polyp from recurring. D&c is the simplest surgery and it is done under anesthesia. Its just lasts few minutes and after the mandatory observation for few hours (4-6) you will be discharged from the hospital. So do not fear and get the dnc done.

Diabetes affects all organs in the body ? Eyes, kidneys, nerves, reproductive system all are affected, In fact, from toe to hair. For diabetic control, patient and doctor should be n constant touch for regular follow up and advice. It is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose ? SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS),& HbA1C ( inform me ) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me privately with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take.

I have been married for 2 years now and are looking to have babies. I wanted to ask what to do in order to have sex for a longer period of time in one shot before I ejaculate. I want to make sure that the maximum quantity of semen goes inside the vagina. What should I do? And I normally use a standing position. Should I change it to some other position or is it fine to have sex in a standing position? To have babies.

It depends on your involvement with your partnor so just relax and increase involvement in the act rather thinking to increase time frame. I hope this will help you.

Identify Your Headache- Could be Migraine Due to Bad Oral Hygiene

Maintaining good oral hygiene has now become all the more important. A new study has linked the cause of migraines to be a specific type of bacteria present in mouth and gut. People complaining of splitting headaches is fairly common place nowadays. Statistics in india show that nearly one third indian women and one fifth of indian men suffer from this type of headache.

Symptoms of migraine include:


Moderate to severe pain that affects the whole head or may shift to one side
Increased sensitivity to light, sound and pungent odour
Blurring of vision
Nausea and/or vomiting
Dizziness, fatigue
Seeing dark spots in front of eyes


There are three different types of headaches- severe headache, cluster headache and migraine.

Headache is simply unpleasant pain in the head region of varying intensity. Cluster headache is intense one sided headache with tearing in the eye of the side of the pain. Migraines are moderate to severe pain in the head, usually diffuse and presents along with the above stated symptoms.

Causes of migraine:

Knowing what causes migraine can help avoid it. Common causes that affect different people are as follows:


Stress
Hormonal changes and supplements
Over use of contraceptive pills
Exertion
Excessive heat
Sleeping in small closed rooms with inadequate ventilation
Overuse of mosquito repellent
Acidity
Bad oral hygiene
High bp
Overuse of pain killers
Smoking


Food that triggers migraine:

Many people experience migraine because of different food items. Identify your trigger and then try hard to avoid it.


Chocolates
Wine
Processed and canned meat products
Onions, potatoes, spinach, and over eating of rice


Since many years now, nitrate medicines have been used to maintain cardiovascular health and previous research has revealed that heart patients who were given medications containing nitrates routinely complained of headaches. The migraineurs had high nitrate levels, but the actual connection to link the two had not been established until now.

Researchers at the university of california-san diego investigated this further to identify the connection between what the migraineurs eat that alters their experience with migraines. Bacterial sequencing was done on the 172 participants of samples collected from their mouth and gut. Tests showed an abundance of nitrate reducing bacteria in their faecal samples, but even more in their mouth bacteria.

The study published in the journal msystems has identified the link between oral bacteria and migraine, but it is still not evident whether these bacteria are the cause or a result of migraine. But even then it is best to stay safe from our side by maintaining a healthy lifestyle and a good oral hygiene. Migraine is often neglected by the patients and hence becomes difficult to treat. Identify the above triggers and causes of migraine and consult a physician if you have any of them.

Most likely to be costo chondritis, a low inflammatory condition of ribs meeting the central sternum. The joints are tender due to ligamentous inflammation which is not evident on x rays. Locally tenderness on touch is there. General lack of exercise aggravates this. Regular breathing and stretching exercises of chest muscles helps in increasing stretchability at these joints without causing pain. It needs patience for some length of period to get results. Occasional use of anti inflammatory and muscle relaxants can be made.
