She might be having hormonal imbalance or she might be normal. Having sex 2-3 times in a day in young age is normal. Better get an opinion from competent doctor.

Tampons Vs Sanitary Napkins - Which One Should You Use?

DNB, DGO, MBBS

Tampons Vs Sanitary Napkins - Which One Should You Use?

During the menstrual days, it is necessary to use some kind of padding or easily absorbent material to remain clean and hygienic throughout the day. This material is available in form of tampons or sanitary napkins.

What is the difference between tampons and sanitary napkin

  1. The tampon is a mass of retentive material shaped in a cylinder, which needs to be inserted into the vagina. Most tampons have a cord or string to aid manual removal. Tampons are used especially when you have to wear tight fitting clothes.
  2. The sanitary napkins are disposable flat pads that are worn externally to collect menstrual blood and prevent staining. These are mostly made of rayon or cotton. They are available in a variety of sizes, with added benefits of extra absorption and fragrance in some cases. They are easier to carry.

Benefits of using a tampon

  1. Tampons are easy to use provided you are very well informed and well practiced about its usage and methods of insertion
  2. Tampons can absorb menstrual blood, depending on your flow, for up to six hours.
  3. Tampons are more hygienic as the entire material does not get soaked. This helps in preventing the menstrual blood from coming in contact with underwear, skin and staining other clothing.

Disadvantages of using a tampon

  1. Tampons, if not changed within 4-6 hours, may cause leakage and staining.
  2. The insertion of a tampon is extremely inconvenient and uncomfortable if not used by practiced hands.
  3. Incorrect insertion can be painful and lead to injuries and infection
  4. Leaving a tampon on for too long can cause a Toxic Shock Syndrome. It is a fatal disease caused by toxins and bacterial infection.
  5. Tampons may increase menstrual cramps in some cases.

Benefits of using sanitary napkins

  1. Sanitary napkins are easy to use. They come in flat, rectangular shapes of absorbent material that are stuck on the underwear and absorb menstrual blood externally.
  2. Can be worn overnight.
  3. Easier to use and convenient to carry around.
  4. Helps to monitor the flow of blood
  5. Lessens the risk of infections, and there are fewer health risks

Disadvantages of sanitary napkins

  1. Cannot prevent menstrual odours
  2. The absorption rate is lower than tampons
  3. They show through clothing and tight fitted clothes cannot be worn

It is difficult to say which one is a better or healthier option. Both kinds have their own advantages and disadvantages and are a matter of individual preference. No matter what you use, it is important for you to keep in mind that it is necessary to change it after a few hours, and regular washing helps keeping the menstrual odour in check. It also keeps the pubic region clean and free from the risks of bacterial infections. It is necessary to remain active and maintain a healthy diet to have a regular smooth flow without blood clots. In case of uncontrolled bleeding, you must seek medical attention without delay. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist and ask a free question.

That is not a big problem. It may be due to any kind of stress or exertion. You have to wait for periods. But don't take any hormonal medicine.

Why Indian Traditions Are Healthy

Diploma in Cardiology
General Physician, Kolkata
Why Indian Traditions Are Healthy

Indian traditions are more like the first lessons which are taught by the elders of the house. These traditions are often followed without any doubts and questions. These traditions are not just being followed for the sake of religious rituals, but have deep rooted scientific reasons associated with the same.

Some of the interpretations of these rituals are as follows:

  1. Namaste: When we greet someone or meet someone for the first time we join both our hands for Namaste. This is done out of sheer respect for the person. Doing Namaste activates the acupuncture points of the fingertips and helps us to remember the person.
  2. Ushapan: This is the practice of drinking water from a copper utensil. This helps in absorbing the extra heat of the body, thereby, maintaining the body temperature. The water should be kept overnight in the copper pot before drinking. It is believed that drinking water from a copper pot helps in bowel movement, cleaning of the stomach and creating digestive juices.
  3. Sukhasan: When one sits on the floor with crossed leg is referred to as sukhasan. For having food in this position a person has to bend while eating and has to move up and down while eating. When this happens, the stomach is pushed while bending and the back is straight before taking the next bite. This movement leads to muscular movements thereby, helping to produce digestive juices and aids in swallowing as well.
  4. Vamakukshi and Shatapawali: Vamakukshi is referred to as the afternoon nap post lunch. Sleeping on the left side helps in the digestion of the food. Though prolonged sleep can make a person lazy, a quick 10 minute nap is recommended as it allows a person to be fresh. Shatapwali means taking 100 steps, to be more appropriate it is the walk after dinner. This helps in the digestion of food as the gas created after consuming food is moved and the pressure in the chest is reduced. The above terms literally explain the famous phrase, "After lunch sleep a while, after dinner walk a mile."
  5. Ear Piercing: Though ear piercings are looked at as a fashion ornament, but as per the Hindu traditions, these help in decision making, thinking abilities and intellectual development and also to some extent an acupressure point. It is ideal to get a baby"s ear pierced by the 12th day of her birth, as it is believed that getting ears pierced early leads to acquiring the quality of minimal speech.
  6. Touching Feet of Elders: This is known as one of the best exercises as it aids in blood circulation, helps in stretching and pushing the organs, improves excretion and digestion and strengthens the physique. It is also believed to transfer an aura and positive energy from the person whose feet are being touched.

YOur baby has to be checked again and if positive he needs medication Normal” range for TSH can vary from Lab to Lab and is different for different for different labs. It is important to bear in mind the following when interpreting this test report. TSH can vary significantly at different times of the day. Although TSH is a good guide to diagnose thyroid disorder, it is not reliable parameter in itself or diagnosis nor for titrating the dose of thyroid replacement therapy. I always recommend checking FREE T3 and FREE T4 along with TSH. Sometimes low TSH could be due to pituitary causes. “NORMAL’ DOES NOT MEAN “OPTIMAL”. A large no of cases have TSH in the normal range but suffer from sub-clinical Hypothyroidism and needs to be treated. You also want to have your Free T3 and Free T4 run. They will be more accurate in measuring actual thyroid hormone. I would ask your ob to run the FT3/FT4 and then based on those results.

What are the foods that can entice a pregnant women as a women despite hungry shows reluctance to eat anything?
If a woman is pregnant she would have her own cravings for a particular kind of food, and she should be allowed to eat whatever suits her taste buds. No on can entice a woman for food especially if she has sickness or aversion to food which she used to like earlier. However you may try your luck with chocolates, icecreams, juices etc.

Hello- Whether you give birth vaginally or by C-section, your body will need time to heal. Consider waiting to have sex until your health care provider gives you the green light (often four to six weeks after childbirth).

Don't take tablets yourself. Visit a gynaec and take medicines under strict supervision of a registered medical professional. Don't be shy and don't hesitate. Such things r quite common nowadays and we daily get such patients. Gynaecs follow strict professionalism and privacy is also maintained. Beware of quacks. And do not self medicate it can be life threatening.

It may not be a problem at all. Most of the time it is natural. It should be examined a doctor to exclude any pathological cause.
