Regarding ivf treatment, as your gynecologist has already started the protocol don't discuss with other doctors for any medications which might affect your protocol. They will decide if your not well when to go for embryo transfer. Have faith in your doctor. Bp patients can also go for the treatment.

All About Vulvar Cancer

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS, DGO

All About Vulvar Cancer

Vulvar cancer is an invasive and cancerous growth, which occurs in the vulva (the external vaginal or reproductive tract opening in females). The main types of vulvar cancer include:

  1. Squamous cell carcinoma: This condition gives rise to abnormal growths that generally originate from the most common forms of skin cells known as squamous cells. They are characterized by open sores, scaly red patches, elevated growths with a depression in the centre or warts which might crust or bleed. They can cause disfiguring and sometimes can prove to be fatal if their growth is allowed.
  2. Melanoma: This is a form of cancer that is known to develop cells that contain pigment called melanocytes. It is one of the most dangerous forms of cancer and is more commonly found in women.
  3. Basal cell carcinoma: Basal cell carcinoma contributes to around 1- 2% of vulvar cancer. This form of cancer tends to be slow-growing lesions on the labia majora (external large vulvar folds), but is capable of occurring anywhere else on the vulva. The behaviour bears resemblance to basal cell cancers that occur in other locations. Their growth is local and the risk of deep invasion or metastasis (spreading of cancer) is low. Treatment of basal cell carcinoma involves excision. However, these types of lesions tend to recur if they are not removed completely.

Symptoms of vulvar cancer include:

  1. Itching, bleeding or burning sensation on the vulva that is not relieved.
  2. Occurrence of skin changes such as rashes or warts, on the vulva.
  3. Pain in pelvis, particularly during sex or urination.
  4. Changes in skin colour of the vulva (abnormally red or white).
  5. Lumps, ulcers or sores that occur on the vulva which does not subside

Treatment options of vulvar cancer include:

1. Surgery: This is the most common form of treatment wherein, the cancer is removed without affecting the sexual function of the woman. Some of the surgical procedures include:

  • Laser Surgery
  • Wide local excision (small portion of the cancerous tissue)
  • Radical local excision (removing a major portion of benign tissues as well)
  • Ultrasonic surgical aspiration (tumour is broken into small pieces using fine vibrations)
  • Vulvectomy (removal of all or part of vulva)

2. Radiation Therapy: This treatment procedure involves using radiations such as X-rays to target and destroy the cancer cells. The two forms of radiation therapy are external radiation therapy and internal radiation therapy.

3. Chemotherapy: This form of treatment uses oral administration or injection of chemicals into the veins so that the growth of cancerous cells is stopped, either by elimination of the cells or by prohibiting cell division.

Ayurveda Tips to Control Hair Fall

Hair loss can be harrowing for both men and women, especially if it tends to be above normal for extended periods of time. Losing more hair than that can signify problems within the body such as hormonal changes, ageing, life style related issues etc. 

Lifestyle change tips to avoid hair fall: Even before getting into Ayurvedic remedies to control the loss of hair, it is important to reduce the problems which may be contributing to the problem in the first place. Some of the things that you may be required to do are:

  1. Maintain or start of on a healthy diet and cut fatty, oily and processed foods from your diet.
  2. Start exercising to ensure that your body is in the best shape it possibly can be and thus everything within, is functioning optimally.
  3. Start doing yoga, breathing exercises and other meditative techniques to ensure that your stress levels are kept under control.

Amla juice mixed with lemon juice can be massaged on the scalp after the wash. This will make the follicles on your scalp stronger. 
  2. Ritha: An age old solution to hair problems, Ritha is also known as soapberry as it contains naturally foamy and cleansing agents. Crush the Ritha seeds and keep them soaked in water overnight. Wash your hair with the mixture in the morning and continue for a month to see visible results.
  3. Aloe vera with cumin seeds: Mix about one third cup of aloe vera juice with a little bit of cumin or Jeera powder. Use this mixture at least twice a day, for a few months to see results in the prevention of hair thinning.
  4. Bhringaraaj: One of the most effective Ayurvedic herbs used in many medicines, it can be taken internally to help the system repair the hair related problems, or applied externally as Bhringaraaj oil to encourage hair growth and stopping hair loss.
  5. Brahmi oil: Considered brain food in its herb form, Brahmi oil is known to be very good for hair related ailments and is very effective at stopping hair loss and help new hair growth.

What Is My BMI - Am I Getting Fat?

What Is My BMI - Am I Getting Fat?

Am I fat ? Am i underweight..? What's normal weight ?

These are a few questions that always keep crossing our mind and for a few it causes lot of stress. There is an easy way to measure your body fat sitting at home by simply following two simple steps that will help you find out if you are underweight, or in normal limits- or overweight.

The Body Mass Index is a measure of the body weight relative to height that is associated with body fat and health risk. The equation is: BMI = body weight in kilograms/height in meters squared.

For an example if your height is 5ft- 4" ( 164 cm) and weight is 58 kgs.

BMI = 58/ 1.64x 1.64= 21.5kg/m2

Normal BMI range is used globally is varied from the one used for Indians. According to WHO:

Less than 18.5 - Under weight
18.5-24.9 - Normal
25.0- 29.9- Overweight
30.0 and above- Obese
The following are common definitions of BMI thresholds (used for Indians):.

BMI limit for Indians is:
Less than 18.4 - Underweight,
18.5 - 22.9 - Normal
23 - 24.9 - Overweight
More than 25 - Obese

Waist Circumference:
Another measure used to analyze your body fat is known as waist circumference.
Here by using a measuring tape you need to measure you waist circumference right in the center.
Waist circumference is 90 cm for Indian men and 80 cm for Indian women.

Waist- to- Hip Ratio:
Another simplest measure used to calculate fatness of the body is known as waist- to- hip ratio, a relationship between waist circumference and hip circumference. This can be easily done at home. Once you have known you waist circumference, find out your hip circumference. Divide your waist circumference by hip circumference; this would give you waist- to- hip- ratio.

Normal range for women- waist to hip ratio is 0.8 or less, if higher than 1.0 - it indicates you are overweight. Similarly for men if ratio is 0.9 or less then it is considered as safe, if higher than 1.0 it indicates you are overweight.

So know your weight and take best measures to keep it in limits.

If you have a higher BMI, waist circumference or a waist- to- hip ratio, it is best that you consult a nutrition expert to understand your dietary habits and recommend a suitable diet plan as per your needs. You can also visit the obesity clinic at Paras Hospitals, Gurgaon.

Why it is better to take vaginal contraceptives
Using contraceptives vaginally is more effective. It doesn't lead to nausea, vertigo, headache, breast tenderness, period pain and other stomach issues when compared with women taking the pills orally.

For now it is not sure that you are pregnant or its the effect of progesterone, these are hormone and should be take as prescribed only. So for now do as your doctor says and do not take/ continue any medicine without consultation of your doctor as it may be harmful.

There is something known as midcycle/ ovulation spotting which occurs only for a day or so... this may be happening...But if the bleeding is enough to soak a pad, or continues in this pattern, do get a gynae opinion.

White of egg is protein and healthy for all ,and yellow is fat, which if taken daily gets your cholesterol and triglycerides elevated ,so ideally don't take yellow part of your triglycerides and cholesterol is already on higher side.

Dear lybrate-user, safe days tabhi sure rahte hain jab cycles regular ho. Agar cycle 28 to 30 days ki hai to 7th day se le ke 23rd day unsafe rahta hai. Isliye haan 18th day unsafe hai. 14 th day ke aaspaas ovulation hota hai. Lekin exact sambhavna kehna mushkil hota hai. Wah har mahila mein alag hota hai. Karib 30 % chances ho sakte hain normally.

There is any problem in pregnancy due to the white discharge? please answer to my question.
No. White mucoid discharge can be normal in pregnancy because of increased secretion from cervical glands. However if it is associated with bad smell/ vulval itching or yellowish in color please consult a gynaecologist.
