I cannot comment on that unless I know the sexual status of your gf, as if she is having multiple sexual partners, only then there can be chances of yours being infected with any stds otherwise no chance-------------to be on the safer side you get yourself tested for blood std test for chlamydia, gonorrhea, hiv, syphilis,--------------------------

Hello dear, as I can see you are a case of PCOD. From the history you have given doesn't seem like you are pregnant. Get a check up from your gynaec so that proper treatment can be started for you.

Hello doctors, I am studying MBBS. My sister aged 28 has been detected with 2 uterine fibroids. One fibroid sized 7 cm is located in right lateral uteral wall. Treatment prescribed was MRgFUS in women centre, coimbatore by famous Gynaecologist. My sister is planning for baby. Will this treatment will affect pregnancy? Any side effects? Any hidden truths? Thank you doctors for great service.

Dear Lybrate user, The surgical removal of the fibroid while preserving the uterus of female reproductive system ,recurrences are often observed. Homeopathic remedies tend to balance the hormones, cure the fibroids and reduce heavy menstrual bleeding. They are natural, effective, with no side effects and can be used even during pregnancy. Homeopathy can offer good health to women in all stages of their lives from infancy through old age. It is beneficial for the full range of emotional, mental and physical problems that a woman is likely to experience in her life. Later age, in life when a woman gets pregnant, or has a hard time conceiving (homeopathy can help with problems of infertility), it can assist with difficulties frequently encountered, such as morning sickness and depression. By treating the mother during pregnancy and making her as healthy as she can be, we can insure that the baby will be born healthy and free of inherited diseases. By treating throughout pregnancy, we also assist the mother to go through childbirth safely and joyfully. The homeopathic healing art is beneficial in helping women overcome the effects of hormonal shocks to the system. Homeopathy is truly a friend to women. It is a comprehensive system of medicine which is able to meet the needs of people in all facets of their lives, and through all of life’s transitions. By strengthening the immune system and helping to balance the mind and the emotions, homeopathy can help women achieve the higher purposes of their lives, and feel their very best.

Is there any problem if I am doing unprotected sex with a girl after 15 days of her periods.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Yes she is likely to get pregnant if you have sex after 15 days of menses. It is the unsafe period. But you can give her i-pill within 5 days, sooner the better, immediately after sex is best to prevent pregnancy.

Is vaginal pimples and whole body itching including smelly urine co related afte marriage.

MD-Ayurveda, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Sexologist, Haldwani
Hello- You are suffering from vaginal infection. The vagina is kept healthy by a bacterium called doderlein bacillus that is found in the vaginal tract. It prevents infection by keeping the pH acidic. If you wash yourself too often with medicated soaps and detergents you can change your vagina’s pH, making it vulnerable to infection. Excessive use of deodorants and chemically-treated compounds, unhygienic sex, etc often leads to fungal infections. It can be cured by proper treatment and dietary changes.

Health Benefits Of Apple

Health Benefits Of Apple

1. Get whiter, healthier teeth

An apple won't replace your toothbrush, but biting and chewing an apple stimulates the production of saliva in your mouth, reducing tooth decay by lowering the levels of bacteria.

2. Curb all sorts of cancers

Scientists from the American Association for Cancer Research, among others, agree that the consumption of flavonol-rich apples could help reduce your risk of developing pancreatic cancer by up to 23 percent. Researchers at Cornell University have identified several compounds 'triterpenoids'in apple peel that have potent anti-growth activities against cancer cells in the liver, colon and breast. Their earlier research found that extracts from whole apples can reduce the number and size of mammary tumours in rats. Meanwhile, the National Cancer Institute in the U.S. has recommended a high fibre intake to reduce the risk of colorectal cancer.

3.Decrease your risk of diabetes

Women who eat at least one apple a day are 28 percent less likely to develop type 2 diabetes than those who don't eat apples. Apples are loaded with soluble fibre, the key to blunting blood sugar swings.

4.Reduce cholesterol

The soluble fibre found in apple binds with fats in the intestine, which translates into lower cholesterol levels and a healthier you.

5.Control your weight

Many health problems are associated with being overweight, among them heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes and sleep apnea. To manage your weight and improve your overall health, doctors recommend a diet rich in fibre. Foods high in fibre will fill you up without costing you too many calories.

My wife is pregnant and Completed 7 month but some time she feel not well and start headache.
Hello Lybrate user slight headache and pain in body due to surge of hormones and an increase in blood volume. These two changes can cause more frequent headaches. These headaches may be further aggravated by stress, poor posture or changes in your vision. So,if she taking stress then tell her to avoid stress. If,pain is severe or not bearable then consult your gynaecologist personally.

Failure To Thrive!

MBBS, Diploma In Child Health

Failure To Thrive!

What is failure to thrive?

Children are diagnosed with failure to thrive when their weight or rate of weight gain is significantly below that of other children of similar age and sex. Infants or children that fail to thrive seem to be dramatically smaller or shorter than other children the same age. Teenagers may have short stature or appear to lack the usual changes that occur at puberty. However, there is a wide variation in what is considered normal growth and development.


In general, the rate of change in weight and height may be more important than the actual measurements.

Infants or children who fail to thrive have a height, weight and head circumference that do not match standard growth charts. The person's weight falls lower than the third percentile (as outlined in standard growth charts) or 20 percent below the ideal weight for their height. Growing may have slowed or stopped after a previously established growth curve.

The following are delayed or slow to develop:

  1. Physical skills, such as rolling over, sitting, standing and walking
  2. Mental and social skills
  3. Secondary sexual characteristics (delayed in adolescents)


It is important to determine whether failure to thrive results from medical problems or factors in the environment, such as abuse or neglect.

There are multiple medical causes of failure to thrive. These include:


  • Chromosome abnormalities, such as Down syndrome and Turner syndrome
  • Defects in major organ systems
  • Problems with the endocrine system, such as thyroid hormone deficiency, growth hormone deficiency or other hormone deficiencies
  • Damage to the brain or central nervous system, which may cause feeding difficulties in an infant
  • Heart or lung problems, which can affect how oxygen and nutrients move through the body
  • Anemia or other blood disorders
  • Gastrointestinal problems that result in malabsorption or a lack of digestive enzymes
  • Long-term gastroenteritis and gastroesophageal reflux (usually temporary)

Cerebral palsy

Long-term (chronic) infections

Metabolic disorders

Complications of pregnancy and low birth weight

Other factors that may lead to failure to thrive:

  • Emotional deprivation as a result of parental withdrawal, rejection or hostility
  • Economic problems that affect nutrition, living conditions and parental attitudes
  • Exposure to infections, parasites or toxins
  • Poor eating habits, such as eating in front of the television and not having formal meal times
  • Many times the cause cannot be determined.


The treatment depends on the cause of the delayed growth and development. Delayed growth due to nutritional factors can be resolved by educating the parents to provide a well-balanced diet.

If psychosocial factors are involved, treatment should include improving the family dynamics and living conditions. Parental attitudes and behavior may contribute to a child's problems and need to be examined. In many cases, a child may need to be hospitalized initially to focus on implementation of a comprehensive medical, behavioral and psychosocial treatment plan.

Do not give your child dietary supplements without consulting your physician first.
