Dear lybrate-user the cause for irregular menses is hormonal imbalance which has to be corrected. The pain may be due to congestion of uterus which will get itself relieved after delivery usually. The condtion has to be treated.

I'm 23 years old .I wants 2 knw weather my hymen is broken r not. what's d best method 2 detect it.

Dear user. In Indian context, loosing virginity is breaking of the HYMN. The hymen is a membrane that surrounds or partially covers the external vaginal opening. It forms part of the vulva, or external genitalia, and is similar in structure to the vagina. The hymen does not seem to have a specific physiological function or purpose. The hymn could break due to cycling, stretching exercises, swimming etc. Therefore, don't worry. Take care.

Your sister has to take thyroid medicine throughout pregnancy and after delivery also. Please follow the doctors advice and during pregnancy thyroid test will be repeated few times and dosage adjusted. After delivery depending on the TSH value doctor will advice whether to stop and when to stop. The important thing she should continue the medicine during pregnancy and should not stop without doctors advice.

Treatments of Infertility

FIMSA, FICOG, MNAMS (Obstetrtics & Gynaecology) , MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Treatments of Infertility

Female infertility is considered as the inability of conceiving. As per WHO it is described as the inability to be pregnant, maintain and carry forward a pregnancy to its full term. It is often of two types:

  1. Primary Infertility: This is the inability to give birth to a baby either due to the inability to become pregnant or maintain a pregnancy, which includes stillborn and miscarriage.
  2. Secondary Infertility: This refers to the inability to give birth when there is already a live birth or the woman was pregnant.

The causes of infertility can vary from being acquired or genetic. However, following factors are largely responsible for infertility:

  1. Genetic: Some genes can lead to mutation leading to infertility like, in case of BMP15 gene there is a hypergonadotrophic ovarian failure which causes infertility.
  2. Acquired: This is caused by factors like age, smoking, sexually transmitted diseases, obesity, body weight, eating disorders, diseases like diabetes, thrombophilia and also radiation and chemotherapy.

The treatment for infertility usually depends on the cause, age, duration of time for which a person has been infertile and preference of the patient. Infertility is believed to be a complex disorder and the treatment involves a huge amount of physical, financial and psychological commitments. All this also requires a lot of time. Some women might need just a minimum of two therapies to attain fertility while others might require different treatment before they can conceive.

Treatment is largely aimed to restore the fertility either by means of medication and surgery or help in reproduction with the help of some procedures.

Fertility Restoration through medication

This is the main treatment for women who are infertile because of ovulation disorders. These drugs include:

  1. Gonadotropins: These are injected to stimulate the ovaries. Drugs like Menopur, Repronex, Follistim AQ, Gonal-F, Bravelle restore the production of eggs, while Ovidrel and Pregnyl are used for maturing the eggs and for their release.
  2. Clomiphene citrate: This is taken orally and stimulates ovulation by releasing more Follicle Stimulating Hormone and Luteinizing Hormone from the pituitary gland.
  3. Metformin: This is used in females who have PCOS and also when insulin resistance plays a major role in infertility.
  4. Bromocriptine: Used when the infertility is caused due to excess prolactin production.
  5. Letrozole: This also induces ovulation

Fertility Restoration through surgery

Surgical procedures can amend the problem of infertility. However, these treatments are very rare these days owing to the success of other fertility treatments. These include:

  1. Tubal ligation reversal surgery: In case a tubal ligation has been performed it can be reversed by reconnecting the tubes again through surgery.
  2. Hysteroscopic surgery: This corrects or removes the abnormalities that cause infertility. This surgery can correct the shape of the uterus, remove endometrial polyps and improve chance of getting pregnant.
  3. Tubal surgeries: In case of blocked fallopian tubes laproscopic surgery can be performed to dilate the tubes, removed blockages or create a new opening.

Assistance in Reproduction through techniques

The most common used techniques for reproduction assistance are:

  1. Intrauterine insemination or IUI: In this about million healthy sperms are put in the uterus at the time of ovulation.
  2. Assisted reproductive technology: In this mature eggs are retrieved from a woman and this is then fertilized with sperms in a dish in the lab. Once the fertilization is done the embryo is placed in the uterus for further development. IVF is the most common and effective assisted reproductive technology. This procedure takes place over weeks with several blood tests and hormone injections.

Dealing with infertility is not easy and can be emotionally and physically draining. To cope with the various tests and treatments of infertility one should be fully prepared, eat a healthy diet, exercise reach out for help and support of family and friends and look for other options like a donor egg, adoption or no children.

If you miss your periods then test your urine for pregnancy and if you are pregnant then get the medicine prescribed from a gynecologist immediately to abort so that you don't get much problems later on.

Hello lybrate-user. Well there are no nautal methods of abortion that are being used these days. Too if one is going to use medicine for abortion, it have to be under the medical supervision. Because there are chaces of complications like excessive bleeding etc. So here I would suggest you to kindly get yiur urine test done and consult doctor for any further medical intervention. Hope it helped.

Yes PCOS can be controlled with diet and lifestyle modification. You should start doing regular exercise for weight although it will take time to loose weight but it is helpful, Secondly take adequate nutritious diet including fruits and vegetable and low fat dairy products. Drink lots of juices and water. Quit coffee, canned and fried food.

Pain killers belonging to the family of NSAIDS can prevent ovulation because of there antiprostaglandin activity. These include ibuprofen and related drugs. Therefore I would advice you to take alternative medications like Drotin tablet and see if that helps. If periods are very painful then you probably need to see a Gynaecologist as further tests will be required

5 Surprising FOODS a Health Conscious Person Should Never Eat

5 surprising foods a health conscious person should never eat

Most people are aware that they need to avoid the usual starch or gluten rich foods, like bread, burgers or noodles. What most people fail to see is that some foods that are supposedly healthy end up doing more harm than good. If you do want to have a healthy diet, you have to forgo the following convenient foods that appear healthy.

1. Muesli

The box of muesli that you bought thinking that it is healthy has around 500 calories per serving! additional sugar is what makes most commercially available muesli palatable. You might as well eat a plain doughnut if you are going to consume the amount of calories that each serving of muesli offers.

2. Energy bars

Many people mistakenly feel that energy bars fall under health food. In reality, energy bars are loaded with processed soy along with high quantities of sugar and salt. While being processed the soy loses most of its nutritional values and ends up producing a chemical called hexane. Hexane is highly controversial since in certain doses it is a neurotoxin. 

3. Light yoghurt

The selling point of light yoghurt is that it cuts down on the calorie content of the yoghurt. What most people fail to see is that when the calories are stripped from the yoghurt it does not remain flavourful. To make it palatable, artificial flavours are added. These additional chemicals negate the point of opting for light yoghurt in the first place. 

4. Salads

Unless you are making your own salad you cannot be certain of how healthy it is. When you buy a pre-packed salad or order salads at restaurants you are not exactly ordering healthy. To enhance the taste of the salads a lot of unhealthy additions, especially in the form of dressings, are made which exterminate the whole point of having a salad in the first place. 

5. Store-bought smoothies

You might be putting in nothing but the right fruits and vegetables into your homemade smoothie. Do not expect the store bought ones to be the same. To enhance the flavours, a lot of additional elements go into the product. Some smoothies that you buy can even have up to 1000 calories which you unknowingly intake.

If you do want to have a healthy diet and include these foods then it is best to prepare them at home. Keep track of what you are eating without blindly trusting the labels on the boxes.

Dear lybrate-user, if pregnancy test is negative. Pregnancy is less likely. Repeat test after 1 week of last test. If still negative then rest assured. But make sure you do not hav unprotected sex next time. If test comes positive visit doctor immediately because abortifacient are not prescribed online. Thankyou

You can conceive if your ovulation time is not fixed which is apparent from your periodstime then it may take longer because pregnancy happens when follicle ruptures and get fertilised within 48 hours so keep a record of your period cycles and get engaged in sexual intercourse more frequently around those dates.
