Hello doctors, In order to maximize our chances to conceive, we had intercourse daily from 10th to 18th day. 15th Jul was 18th day. When can we test the pregnancy whether conceived or not? Which is the most recommended way to test the pregnancy? Lastly, if periods do occur this month end as per cycle, is there a possibility that fertilization is done but periods occurred early / on time?

Hello doctors,

If her periods are delayed by more than 5 days, you can do the pregnancy test at home early morng on the 6th/7th day before going to the toilet. If negative, still periods not come, you can repeat the test after another 5 days. Several kits are available with chemist shop. Pregcolor is ok. If periods come in spite of fertilisation, it is due to failure of implantation. Usually as the embryo is implanting in the uterus around 25th day of the cycle she may experience slight cramps and some spots of blood. If the process is successful this problem vanishes in 3 days and the next period dies not come on the expected date. If it fails to implant, then the spots may advance to heavier bleeding like a period. So it is very difficult to identify whether it was a non pregnant menstrual bleed or implantation failure.

Hi. Sugar problem or diabetes can be diagnosed only by blood n urine tests. If your parents or grand parents hv diabetes thdn you hv a higher risk to get. Avoid sugar, sweet foods n exercise regularly. Keep a watch on your breast cyst n consult a doctor immediately if you notice an increasing size or change in consistency of the cyst.

Oncologist, Faridabad
Need not worry about simple cysts, only worrisome thing would be solid mass lesions esp irregular growth, microcalcification may also indicate premalignant lesion, also must do breast self examination for any obvious changes

Postpartum Care: After A Vaginal Delivery

MBBS, MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, DNB (Orthopedics), MNAMS (Membership of the National Academy) (General Surgery)

Postpartum Care: After A Vaginal Delivery

Pregnancy can wreak havoc in your body; be it your hormones overflowing or the constant crying of your newborn that makes you agitated after a point of time. Your baby will probably be your top priority in times like these but maybe, you can put yourself on the list as well once in a while because carrying a human inside isn’t a very easy task.

Vaginal soreness
On the off chance that you suffered a vaginal tear or an episiotomy while delivering, the injury may sting for a couple of weeks. Broad tears may take more time to heal. Meanwhile, you can promote healing by:

  1. In case of sitting becoming uncomfortable, try sitting on a cushion or cushioned ring.
  2. Utilize a squeezer-bottle in order to pour lukewarm water over the vulva while you're urinating. Press a cleansed washcloth immovably against the injury when you hunker down for passing stool.
  3. Cool the injury using an ice compress, or place a cool witch hazel cushion between the wound and a clean sanitary napkin.
  4. Take stool softeners or analgesics as prescribed by your healthcare provider.
  5. For treatment of episiotomy wound in 1st week - betadine wash should be used 3-4 times a day.

While you're recovering, anticipate that the uneasiness will gradually reduce. Contact your doctor if the pain increases; the injury gets swollen, hot and excruciating; or if you notice a discharge with pus.

Vaginal discharge
Vaginal discharge (lochia) might be a problem for several weeks post-delivery. Expect a red, overwhelming stream of blood for the initial few days. The release will continuously decrease, getting to be watery and changing from pink or chestnut to yellow and finally white. Contact your doctor if:

  1. You have substantial vaginal drying
  2. The discharge has a foul scent
  3. You have a temperature of 100.4 F (38 C) or more

You may feel contractions for the initial few days post-delivery. These constrictions, which frequently seem like menstrual cramps help in preventing excess bleeding by compressing the vessels. These contractions have a tendency to get more intense with subsequent deliveries. Your healthcare supplier may suggest an OTC pain reliever as well. Contact your healthcare personnel in the event of fever or if the stomach area is tender to your touch. These symptoms and side effects could show a uterine disease. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.

Hypersexuality Disorder

Diploma in Paediatrics, MBBS
Sexologist, Dehradun
Hypersexuality Disorder

While some people mistakenly think that hypersexual disorders and sex addiction merely refers to an unusually high sex drive, it is much more complex than that. It is very similar to other addictions, which is evident upon closer examination of the various sex addiction signs.

Just as an alcoholic craves his next drink, thinks he can stop on his own but fails over and over, uses alcohol to ease emotional pain, stress, loneliness, and anxiety, and continues to drink despite the negative consequences, so it is with a sex addict. Like other addictions, sex addiction is also progressive. It often starts with a relatively harmless behavior such as excessive masturbation while watching porn. Over time, however, it typically leads to other types of sexual activity that may be very risky or blatantly dangerous.

For the sex addict, sexual activity provides an intense, intoxicating euphoria or “high” while lacking any genuine emotional connection, intimacy, or love. It’s a temporary escape. Once the high wears off, the vicious cycle starts all over again. For the addict, the activity is not fulfilling. It has a significant negative impact on his life and often causes a lot of shame and self-loathing.

The indicators of hypersexual disorders will vary to some degree depending on the individual. For example, some sex addicts have multiple extramarital affairs, while others frequently hire prostitutes or use phone sex services excessively. Following are some of the most common sex addiction signs:

• Excessive masturbation – This is one of the most common early sex addiction signs. Often the sex addict masturbates while engaging in other sexual activity (e.g. while viewing pornography or talking to a phone sex operator).

• Obsessing about sex to the point that it interferes with their life

• Spending a significant amount of time planning their sexual activity – Sex addicts, just like drug addicts and other types of addicts, will devote a large amount of time determining where and how they will get their next “fix”.

• Frequent viewing of pornography or use of sexually explicit websites or other online services – This may include videos, adult magazines, pornographic websites, “adult” chat rooms, paying to watch sexual activity via webcams, or using dating websites that connect people interested in sexual relationships and / or one night stands.

• Frequent or excessive use of phone sex services

• Having multiple extramarital affairs or frequently having sex with multiple partners

• Frequent one-night stands with total strangers or prostitutes

• Staying emotionally detached from sexual partners – Many sex addicts are unable to establish a normal, healthy connection with a sexual partner. This is often due to deep-seated feelings of self-hate and shame. It’s not uncommon for a sex addict to want nothing more to do with a sexual partner once the activity is over.

• Frequent sex without using protection – Many sex addicts engage in high risk behavior such as unprotected sex. This is often because they are so driven to satisfy their craving that they don’t consider or care about the potential consequences.

• Engaging in sexual behavior that directly conflicts with their personal values or religious beliefs – For example, sex addiction signs for someone who is a devout Christian or Catholic may include having multiple partners or extramarital affairs, frequent one night stands, sex with children, or sex with prostitutes. They believe their behavior is morally wrong yet they’re unable to stop.

• Obsessing about a sexual partner who is unattainable – This type of fixation may lead to stalking or sexually harassing the individual, spying on them bathing or engaging in sexual activity (voyeurism), and, in some instances, violence.

• Frequently engaging in paraphilias (sexual behaviors that are considered unusual, distasteful, or unacceptable) – Paraphilias include things like exhibitionism, voyeurism, sadism, masochism, and pedophilia. Although they may indicate a possible addiction, not everyone who engages in paraphilias is a sex addict.

• The inability to stop despite the consequences – As with all addictions, this is one of the primary sex addiction signs. The vast majority of sex addicts are unable to stop without treatment for their addiction.

I am a 32 years old lady. Have three children with one miss abortion. Two months before my pregnancy test became positive after getting the ultrasonography I were told that the fetus was not in uterine canal it was in right adenexia. I also did a beta hcg test showing the amount 32000. I was initially proscribed with methotrexate tablets. That later on reduced the beta hgc level to 2000 and the fetal mass size reduced from 2 cm to 1 cm. Currently I have bleeding what should I do further.

Hi lybrate-user methotraxate had been given to you to abort the fetal mass. It is used in cases of ectopic pregnancy. Bleeding happens and is considered a common phenomena in ectopic pregnancy cases. What you need to do is keep a watch on your beta-hcg levels as this is the best indicator. Your results clearly indicate the right thing happening after methotrexate. Keep in touch with your gynaecologist. No need to worry.

Pregnancy can happen only on one day of cycle- on day woman ovulates. Means you had only 4 trials of pregnancy that too if you had sex on or around that day. That is why you have to give 12-18-24 months chance to nature depending on age of your wife.

Tambaku Side Effects in hindi -  तम्बाकू के दुष्प्रभाव

नशा एक ऐसी बीमारी है जो हमें और हमारे अपनों को जीवन भर रुलाने की वजह बन सकती है। समाज का हर तबक़ा, हर उम्र के लोग नशे की चपेट में आते जा रहे हैं। आज बच्चे, बूढ़े, महिलाएं, पुरुष सभी नशे की लत घिरे हुए हैं और यह स्थिति दिन ब दिन भयावह रूप लेती जा रही है।
यूनिवर्सिटी ऑफ सिडनी के रिसर्चर्स का कहना है कि तम्बाकू का सेवन धूम्रपान के रूप में करने से आपके गले की नली जहा से आप सांस लेते है उसमें ऐसा नुकसान पहुँचा सकता है कि धूम्रपान छोड़ने के बाद भी वह नुकसान की भरपाई नही की जा सकती, इसलिए स्मोकर्स अगर खुद को यह दिलासा देते हैं कि वह आज तो सिगरेट पी रहे है पर कल छोड़ देंगे, तो वह खुद को ही नुक्सान पहुंचा रहे होते हैं। एक आंकड़े के अनुसार, साल 2020 तक मौत के तीन मुख्य कारणों में से एक स्मोकिंग द्वारा होने वाले रोग बन जाएंगे।

कई कारणों से लोग तम्बाकू का सेवन करना शुरू करते है। कभी स्ट्रेस कम करने के लिए तो कभी गुस्से में, कभी टाइम पास करने और अक्सर शौक समझकर तम्बाकू का सेवन करते हैं, पर अंदाजा नहीं लगा सकते कि आप जिस तरह से तम्बाकू को सहजता से खा रहे हैं उसका उतना ही दयनीय परिणाम भी होता है। खैनी, सिगरेट, बीड़ी, गुटखा वगैरा तम्बाकू को जिस भी रूप में लिया जाए इसके नुकसान निश्चित हैं। तम्बाकू का नशा कोई एक समस्या ना होकर कई समस्याओं की जड़ है और यह शारीरिक और मानसिक रूप से नुकसान तो करता ही है साथ ही मौत को जल्दी बुला देता है।
उन सभी लोग का जो तम्बाकू का सेवन करते है यह जानना जरूरी है कि तम्बाकू से बनने वाले अलग अलग नशेड़ी चिजों का कितना घातक असर आपके शरीर पर अलग-अलग तरह से पड़ता है। तो चलिए आज हम आपको बताएंगे तम्बाकू से होने वाले नुकसान के बारे में।

1. सिगरेट
हो सकता है सिगरेट का एक कश लगाकर आप दिन भर कामकाज के तनाव को भले ही कुछ पल भूल जाएं पर धूम्रपान की आपकी आदत शरीर के कई हिस्सों के लिए खतरे की घंटी है। इसमें मौजूद बेनजीन, टार, फोर्मलडीहाइड, आर्सेनिक, निकोटिन जैसे तत्व शरीर के लिए कई रोगों का आमंत्रण हो सकते हैं।
कई शोधों में यह प्रमाणित हो चुका है कि धूम्रपान से फेफड़ों का कैंसर, गले का कैंसर, मुंह, किडनी, ब्लैडर, पैंक्रियाज और पेट में कैंसर का रिस्क अधिक होता है। इसके अलावा अधिक धूम्रपान करने वालों को दिल के रोगों और स्ट्रोक का खतरा अधिक होता है। कार्बन और निकोटिन का मिश्रण शरीर में हार्ट रेट और ब्लड प्रेशर बढ़ाता है। सिगरेट में पाया जाने वाला टार फेफड़ों के कैंसर की बड़ी वजह है। धुएं से निकलने वाली कार्बन मोनोऑक्साइड गैस मांसपेशियों, दिमाग और कोशिकाओं में पहुंचने वाली ऑक्सीजन को रोकती है जिससे हृदय, फेफड़ों और मस्तिष्क के काम करने में दिक्कत हो सकती है। गर्भावस्था में धूम्रपान या पैसिव स्मोकिंग (धूम्रपान करने वालों की संगत) गर्भपात, समय से पहले डिलिवरी, बच्चे का कम वजन आदि का कारण हो सकता है।

2. तम्बाकू, खैनी, गुटखा
जर्दा, सुर्ती और पान मसाले के नाम पर तंबाकू खाना अगर आपकी आदत का हिस्सा हो चुका है तो आपकी इस आदत को बदलने की कुछ बेहद जरूरी वजहें हो सकती हैं। तंबाकू में 28 किस्म के कार्सिनोजेनिक तत्व होते हैं जिनसे कैंसर हो सकता है। 
तंबाकू से ल्यूकोप्लाकिया का रिस्क अधिक रहता है जिसमें दांत और मसूड़े तेजी से सड़ते हैं। मुंह के कैंसर का यह बहुत बड़ा कारण है। गले का कैंसर का रिस्क अधिक रहता है। तंबाकू में मौजूद निकोटिन हार्ट रेट और ब्लड प्रेशर बढ़ा देता है जिससे दिल के रोगों की आशंका अधिक रहती है। भोजन करने की इच्छा खत्म कर देता है।

3. हुक्का
आज हुक्का न सिर्फ गांवों तक सीमित है बल्कि तमाम पब, होटलों और रेस्तरां में हुक्के (तंबाकू युक्त हुक्के) का चलन बढ़ा है। अगर आप इसे सिगरेट के विकल्प के रूप में देखते हैं तो सेहत पर इसका प्रभाव जानना जरूरी है।
हुक्का में सिगरेट की तरह ही टार, कार्बन मोनोऑक्साइड, हेवी मेटल्स और कार्सिनोजेनिक तत्व हैं जो कैंसर का रिस्क बढ़ाते हैं। इससे मुंह का कैंसर, दिल के रोग और फेफड़ों के कैंसर की आशंका सबसे अधिक होती है। सिगरेट की तरह ही हुक्के का निकोटिन भी हार्ट रेट और ब्लड प्रेशर को बढ़ाता है। गर्भावस्था के दौरान हुक्का पीने या हुक्का पीने वालों के दौरान मौजूद रहने से गर्भवती महिलाओं के गर्भ को नुकसान हो सकता है। हुक्का के पाइप से कई प्रकार के संक्रमणों का रिस्क अधिक रहता है। 

4. सिगार
हालांकि सिगार का प्रचलन हमारे यहां अपेक्षाकृत कम है पर कुछ लोग सिगार को सिगरेट की अपेक्षा बेहतर विकल्प मानते हैं। अगर आप भी ऐसा सोचते हैं तो जान लें कि तंबाकू का सेवन हर रूप में सेहत के लिए नुकसानदायक ही है। 
सिगार में मौजूद निकोटिन भले ही फेफड़ों में कम जाए लेकिन यह मुंह को सीधा प्रभावित करता है जिससे मुंह और गले के कैंसर का रिस्क बढ़ जाता है। इसमें बहुत अधिक मात्रा में कार्सिनोजेनिक तत्व होते हैं। शोधों की मानें तो सिगार में 60 से भी अधिक कार्सिनोजेनिक तत्व पाए जाते हैं। दिल के रोगों का खतरा इससे अधिक होता है। इसके सेवन से धमनियों के ब्लॉकेज और दिल के दौरे का रिस्क बढ़ जाता है। कम समय में ही दांत गिरने लगते हैं।

जैसा कि आपने जाना कि तंबाकू का सेवन किसी भी हाल में खतरनाक है इसलिए अगर चाह हो जिंदगी और अपनों से तो तम्बाकू से किनारा कर लें। वरना तम्बाकू आपकी जिंदगी को किनारे लगा देगा।
