Bleeding during twin pregnancy in 18 th week in regular basis but small in quantity, 4-5 times/day, what is the remedy?

Any bleeding, however small in any pregnancy should never be ignored. In twin pregnancy the cause of bleeding may be more severe like low lying placenta or sudden separation of placenta- that may endanger life of both the mother as well as baby. Please don't get afraid after reading these. But please contact your gynecologist immediately. I always prefer to see these patients urgently and do an urgent usg before advising further treatment.

Is it safe for a 5 months pregnant women to watch horror movies. Will it affect the child's growth?
Hello- ayurveda advises not to do any thing that might affect your mental health during pregnancy. It can affect the growth and the shape of child in the uterus. That is the reason why indian people organize religious fests or advises holy book reading during pregnancy.

Vaginal Douching - Is it Good?

MBBS, DGO, MD, Fellowship in Gynae Oncology
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Vaginal Douching - Is it Good?

Like many systems within the human body, the reproductive system is also a self maintaining one and performs many complex functions on its own. The female reproductive system is one such system and within it, the vagina is an especially good example. It is a self contained system wherein, the balance of the vaginal bacteria is maintained for proper health.

Douching
Douching is a process that involves the cleaning out or washing of an internal cavity of a body, such as the anus or the vagina with the help of water and special nozzles. Vaginal douching has become prevalent among women, mostly due to aggressive marketing campaigns which claim that it helps to keep the vagina clean. It is estimated that in developed nations, one in four women perform douching regularly.

Is it any good?
Vaginal douching has been reviled by most medical professionals around the world. The consensus is that not only does vaginal douching have no benefits; it may also be harmful for your vagina in general. The vagina is an ecosystem wherein multiple types of organisms thrive, including bacteria and fungi. These organisms keep each other in check and maintain the health of the organ. These organisms help maintain the pH Levels (the alkaline to acidic radio) within the vagina. Douching may actually disrupt the balance and cause harm by destroying one type of micro-organisms and letting the other proliferate, thus causing infections and other problems.

Problems caused by vaginal douching
Douches, especially the ones found in the market, contain elements such as iodine, baking soda, vinegar and other chemicals that can make the delicate vaginal balance go haywire. Some of the disorders that can be caused by it are mentioned as follows:

  1. Yeast infections: This is due to the proliferation of the fungi known as ‘candida’ within the vagina. This fungus is present within the vagina, but douching can reduce the bacteria that counteract it, resulting in rapid growth. This is one of the most common infections of the vagina.
  2. Bacterial vaginosis: Similar to how yeast infections occur, in this case, harmful bacteria proliferate within the vagina. This is also a common vaginal infection and douching has been deemed as one of the leading causes for it.
  3. Pelvic inflammatory diseases: Douching pushes the bacteria of the vaginal canal into the cervix and the uterus, resulting in infections such as PID or pelvic inflammatory diseases (an infection in the reproductive organ in females).
  4. Pregnancy related problems: A myth has been floating around that if a woman performs douching after sexual intercourse, it will wash away the sperm and hence prevent her from getting pregnant. In fact, the reverse is true. Douching can often push the sperm up into the uterus causing pregnancy. Not only that, pregnancies caused in such a manner have higher chances of bearing complications such as ectopic pregnancies (a condition wherein the fertilized egg gets implanted outside one’s uterus), birth defects, etc.
  5. Irritation and vaginal dryness: Douching at the very least will result in the vagina turning dry as the natural mechanisms are disrupted. This results in irritation and itching. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

My mother has a lump in her left chest since one year ,could you suggest what kind of test should be done to know weather it is normal or any other problem. And recently she has undergone a gynaecological surgery for uterus removal just one week before.

You should show your mother to the same gyane or a surgeon to consult for the lump. Clinical examination asking with mamography and pathological examination (fnac) can diagnose upto 99% cases.

In over half the cases, infertility is usually with the male partner which is characterised by a low sperm count. Infertility causes social anxiety as well as relationship problems among couples and can severely affect the self-esteem of the person.

Symptoms

Male infertility tends to have certain tell tale signs some cases or no apparent reasons in other cases. In some cases, male infertility occurs due to underlying medical conditions like genetic problems, widened veins around the testicle or hormonal imbalances and some of the symptoms could be like:

  1. Recurrent problems during sexual intercourse due to severe pain in the testicular zone.

  2. You might lose your ability to smell due multiple instances of infections of the respiratory system.

  3. There might be a reduction in the body hair.

  4. Abnormal sperm count.

  5. Lack of sexual desire

  6. side effect of radiation therapy

  7. prescribed medications to treat other existing ailments within the body

Diagnosis and Treatment

The infertility of the male partner is usually diagnosed by your specialist by evaluating the medical condition and past histories of surgical procedures, sexual practices etc. Infertility can also be diagnosed by analysing the semen.

I am 20 years old and I have done cesarean last 24 days back. what kind food I have to take? Please help me.
A healthy diet should include a variety of foods from each of the food groups, including plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins and low-fat milk products. It is important to avoid junk food and foods high in calories during the recovery phase of a cesarean section because of the need to limit physical activity. Women should discuss weight loss with their doctor following delivery of the baby, some may suggest waiting to start a weight loss plan until after the 6-week postpartum check-up.

Hello- As you are asking about yoga postures, I am going to tell what ayurveda has to say on your question. Ayurveda states that any kind of physical exertion yoga/exercise/running can obstruct the flow of menses and can cause the re-absorption of the toxic menstrual blood in the body causing gynecological problems (like PCOD, fibroid) or skin problems. Due to over sensitive nature of uterus at the time of bleeding, improper dietary intake such as fast foods ,spicy foods etc also can cause problems in future. So I advice you not do yoga/exercise during your menses.

My age is 23. I was diagnosed with a cyst formation. Epidydimal cyst of 7*8mm. Is there any homeopathic treatment for this instead of operation.

MBBS, MS - General Surgery, DNB

Epididymal cyst by itself means nothing, unless you are any additional problems, like unable to procreate, or pain, fever, etc. Hence there is no need for any treatment, let alone homeopathic.
