Which lubricant to use to avoid burning sensation in vagina during intercourse. We are trying for a child since past 5 months now we want to increase the frequency of intercourse but due to burning it is not possible. Please advise.

MBBS, MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Gurgaon
Burning in vagina is due to infection, so first treat that by drinking lots of water and maintaining​ good personal hygiene. You may need few Medicines too to get free from burning. Also see that your partner's private parts are washed well too before the act. Lubricants are best to be avoided at this stage as they might aggravate your burning.

Footwear with heels and their biomechanical impact on heel pain

Bachelor in Physiotherapy, Msc Advanced Sports Therapy and Rehab Science (UK), honorary Doctorate
Physiotherapist, Chennai
Footwear with heels and their biomechanical impact on heel pain
Introduction

Women loves high heels, but if they continue wearing them all time chances of significant foot pain and associated problems either can occur directly or exacerbated by wearing heels. (Morin, n.d.).

Any time person wears footwear that disturbs or realigns the natural counter of the foot they are bound to cause foot pain the experts says. While, if you add a bit of inches (high heels) in to this calculations then the pain can soon escalate to damage says Stuart Mogul expert in podiatry. Due to this, there exists the change in the body segmental alignment. For instance wearing high heels will restrict the natural movement of the foot and in addition to the restriction there is increased loading of weight on that area hence the person is not just crushing the toes, but adding exaggerated body weight on them says the Sports Scientist (Biomechanics) Vasanth Kumar from Chennai who is also a performance coach.

Consequences of wearing footwear with heel

Researchers have found that people wearing high heels (2 Inches or more) have tighter calves. About 13% short on the calf muscle fibres on an average was found in the calf muscle scans among the people with frequent heel wearers in comparison with the people who avoided wearing heels. A study by Journal of Experimental Biology found that high heels led to stiffer calf (Achilles) tendons.

A study by Professor Marco Narici, (Manchester Metropolitan University) that involved 11 volunteers from 80 group of women who wore 5cms (2 Inches) of heel for over a period of two years had issues and struggled while walking on flat foot (Bare Foot). An MRI Scan of these volunteers showed no significant difference in length of the calf muscles in comparison with the group of women who wore flat shoes. While, an Ultra Sound scan showed shorter calf among the women who wore heels. In addition, the women who wore heels were asked to lie on their front on the couch and the researchers noticed the angle of the heel were greater due to the shortened calf. Above all these, the tendons were much thicker and stiffer among the women wearing heels than those who wore flat footwear that causes discomfort while walking on flat feet since the tendon cannot stretch sufficiently.

Prevention

Sammy Margo, chartered physiotherapist from London says not to wear heels or flat shoes all the time but to wear variety of heel heights that can keep the muscle in right length (Anon., 2010). Secondly, the researchers and scientists have found out that performing some regular stretching activities can minimise the issue of calf muscle tightening.

Stretching Exercises

Stand on tiptoes on a step, and using a handrail for balance to lower their heels as far as they can and hold the position for 10 – 15 seconds.
Strengthening the Tibialis anterior (Shin Muscle) muscle can be of a help (Toe Raise) for a count of 8 – 10 Repetitions 2 -3 sets a day says the Sports Scientist.

Tips

Select footwear with low heels – an inch and a half or lesser while a wider heel base can be of more help; a slightly thicker heel will spread the load more evenly. Narrow, stiletto-type heels provide little support and three inch or higher heels may shorten (Tighten) the Achilles tendon.

Softer insoles can reduce the impact on the knees.

Selecting right size footwear is more essential. Wearing shoes that allow your body to move naturally during walking will allow your feet, legs, hips and back to stretch.

Stretch your muscles as many times as possible during the day and while during rest.

Difference in Radiographs between High Heels and Normal Footwear

Conclusion

Do not let your sense of style cripple your ability to stand or step pain-free. “Your feet are, quite literally, your base of support. If your feet aren’t happy, nothing above them will be,” says Dr. Nevins. “Take a closer look at your shoe selection and take small steps now to prevent big foot problems later.” (Nevins, 2015). In addition to all these the above exercises as a regular routine will keep the muscles in the right length and can be used as the preventive factor.

Mommy Makeover - What To Expect!

Bringing a child into this world is one of the most wonderful phases of a woman's life. At the same time, this involves a lot of body changes - physiologically, physically, chemically, and emotionally. Mommy makeover refers to one or a combination of procedures that are done to alter the appearance after delivery, especially relating to one or more of the following:

  1. Tummy that is sagging (no fat, just loose skin) with stretch marks
  2. Breasts that are altered in size and shape, sometimes the enlargement could be completely disproportionate with the body and cause back pain
  3. Undefined thick waistline with irregular fat accumulation
  4. Fat deposits on the abdomen, thighs, hips, and trunk that do not reduce with dietary changes and exercise
  5. Skin changes on the face and around the eyes, giving an aged appearance
  6. Post cesarean, there is excessive skin around the surgical scar

Pros:

  1. Reduces tummy size
  2. Gives a more youthful appearance
  3. Alters breasts to the desired shape and size

Cons:

  1. Weight loss, if happens, could affect the results
  2. Subsequent pregnancies don't have any complications with tummy tuck but with another pregnancy the effects may be lessened or reversed.
  3. Since surgery is involved, the risk of unforeseen complications always exists (for instance, in breast implants, there is capsule formation or capsulitis, in rare cases rupture may require removal.)

Mommy makeover is not a single step procedure, but a combination of plastic surgical procedures that are done depending on the problem you present with.

Tummy tuck - If there is abdominal sagging, the tummy is tucked back into position by removing the fat and excessive skin and reworking on the belly button.

Liposuction - Excessive fat deposits in the hips, thighs, trunk area can be removed by sucking out the fat deposits. Most commonly done in the hips and trunk area.

Breast lift - Sagging uneven breasts, drooping nipples, reduced volume are all indications for a breast lift. During the surgery, the breast tissue is repositioned to reproduce a better shape and size and reposition the nipples if required.

Breast reduction - Large breasts are a common problem, and breast reduction is one of the most requested for procedures.

Breast augmentation - Either saline implants or silicone are used to restore breast size and shape to the desired results. Usually, breast lift is combined with breast augmentation.

Facial corrections - From dark circles to sagging skin to wrinkles, facial appearance can be changed based on the presenting symptoms.

These are very brief descriptions of the various procedures that are done as part of mummy makeover. A detailed consultation with your plastic surgeon regarding costs, subsequent pregnancies, aftercare, recovery, healing, and limitations and risks is to be had ahead of the surgery.

Is Johnson's baby products is good for my baby
And can I give her cerelac.
She is depend on breastfeeding.
In my opinion there is nothing special in Johnson's products. If baby is to complete 6 months of age, start supplementary food preferably prepared at home like suji kheer in stead of cerelac, dal daliya khichadi etc.

In pcos its the common problem that the follicle does not grow. That is called as anovulation. By the way pcos is not a disease and a change in the body. So there is no question in saying that it is cured. U are unmarried and do not need any treatment at present. You can take treatment once you get married. All that has happened is because of you loosing weight.

Insomnia - 5 Natural Cures!

Insomnia - 5 Natural Cures!

Insomnia is when an individual has difficulty either falling asleep or staying asleep. Most people with insomnia often experience a variety of symptoms such as mood disturbances, fatigue, low energy, difficulty concentrating etc. Insomnia can be characterized based on duration, i.e.: acute and chronic. When you can’t fall asleep before a big presentation or an exam, it is known as acute insomnia. Chronic insomnia is when you have trouble falling asleep for at least three nights a week for a duration of three months. Chronic insomnia disorders can have many causes. Changes in the environment, unhealthy sleep habits, certain clinical disorders and certain medications.

Here are some natural ways to overcome insomnia:

1. Take control of your stress:

The number one reason people have trouble sleeping is stress. When you are chronically stressed cortisol streams through your body making it difficult to sleep. Along with insomnia it can cause anxiety, mood swings, forgetfulness, weight gain etc. To control this, try relaxation techniques like yoga or meditation.

2. Snack wisely:

We are all told not to eat right before going to bed. However, most people cannot go to sleep when they are hungry. If you must eat close to your bedtime, try healthy snacks which contain a lot of healthy carbs and a little protein. Eating too much before going to bed can cause heartburn and indigestion which can hamper sleep.

 3. Sleep regular hours:

Try going to bed and waking up at the same time every day. An erratic sleep schedule can cause disturbances in sleep. However, some people who travel a lot and work in shifts may not be able to do this. In which case, try to follow the other remedies as much as possible.

4. Minimize the use of electronics:

Watching a movie or a tv show stimulates the mind leaves you unable to sleep. It takes the brain longer to calm down enough for you to go to sleep. The blue light emitted by your screen reduces the production of melatonin, which is the natural sleep hormone produced by your body. Try engaging in offline activities like reading a book or writing or drawing. All of these can relax you and help you fall asleep easier.

 5. Make your bedroom a cave:

As much as possible make your bedroom like a cave. Dark, quiet and cool. Light disturbs melatonin production. Keep away or turn off all electronic devices. It has been found that the perfect temperature for sleeping is 18.3 degrees. If you cannot make your room dark enough try using an eye-mask and earplugs to block out any disturbances.

Hello, just repeat the test again after 3 days and if negative then you can wait for a week to allow menses to arrive else you may get an ultrasound pelvis to check for lining thickness and then can opt for a withdrawal bleed with progesterones.

Hello doctor from last 5 years I am diabetic my age is 33 yrs I came to know this when I conceive my first baby now the problem is that after having the baby for first year I was regular in checkups but now I am not going any where and taking insulin 20 in the morning and 20 in the evening want to consult a doctor what I have to do to give him that information before consulting him

Integrative medicine is a recent advance, and a healing system through which conditions like Diabetes can be reversed. Yes thats right, reversed, so that its possible that your Insulin may be stopped and you may return to your normal vibrant health. Of course, this can be confirmed only after a detailed consultation and testing, but the system works. As an example, a 65 yr old patient, diabetic since 25 years and on high dose of Insulin, was able to reduce Insulin to 40% in one week.

PCOS patient can conceive with some medical support. But we need to do some blood investigations to asses the hormonal status of the patient and also asses her tubal status. Depending on the report we can plan treatment for her. Chances of pregnancy are good.

Things to Know Before Giving Birth

MBBS, MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Faridabad
Things to Know Before Giving Birth

Childbirth can be an extremely blissful and enriching experience if the proper do's and don'ts are strictly adhered to. The birth of a child can be comparable to a landmark experience in the life of a woman. Therefore, it is imperative to cater to the needs of one’s well-being in order to keep the body in optimal shape and health.

Some handy pre-childbirth tips should include:

  1. Things might not go exactly the way you’ve planned. You need not panic if all the points in your “ideal childbirth manual” have not been ticked off. Minor things can go wrong here and there. Keeping calm and ardently following your doctor’s advice is the key.

  2. It WILL be painful, but that pain will be worth it after you get to hold your new born for the very first time in your hands. Even if you have to go for an epidural, the resulting experience will change your life for the better, that’s a certainty.

  3. The whole process might take a very long time. Don’t panic. Remember, it will be a test of your endurance and patience.

  4. Your body will experience numerous changes over the 9 months of your pregnancy. Starting from sudden midnight cravings to gaining pounds to experiencing tremendous hormonal imbalances– you might have to bear the brunt of all these. Prepare yourself accordingly. Again, just to reiterate, all of it will be worth every ounce of energy in your body.

  5. The space might feel cluttered because of the poop that may lie scattered. This is because, during labour, the same muscles are responsible for pushing the baby out which are usually involved with your regular bowel movement. Being mentally prepared is the key.

  6. And lastly, live the joyride that pregnancy can be. 

    If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Endometriosis and Infertility - Are They Related?

MBBS, DGO
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Endometriosis and Infertility - Are They Related?

There can be a number of reasons that lead to infertility in women. Endometriosis is one of them. It is a benign condition where the endometrium, which includes the tissues that form the lining inside the uterus, grows outside the uterus. Apart from infertility, it may also cause pelvic pain in women.

There are no such symptoms of endometriosis apart from pelvic pain and it cannot be detected without surgery. Thus, it is very difficult to diagnose this disease and state how common it is. However, research says that the prevalence of this disease in women in their reproductive age is between 3 to 10 per cent.
It is found that endometriosis sometimes leads to infertility. Here is how:

Abdominal Adhesions and Infertility
Normally, the endometriosis implants develop in the abdomen. Then the body surrounds them with connective tissues. The reason for doing so is isolating the implants, so that they cannot harm your body.
Now, sometimes these adhesions can create a blockage in the opening of the fallopian tube or may also pinch off the fallopian tube. This will result in obstruction in the fertilisation of egg and the sperm and thus fertilization will not take place; so there are no chances of conceiving. These obstructions when diagnosed can be treated with surgery.

Secretions from implants
Endometrium plays a vital role in conception where the tissues secrete a wide variety of hormones and nutrients. Now, the endometrial implant also functions in the same way and secretes those hormones. The difference is that it does not deposit them in the lumen of the womb, and it is released in the abdominal cavity. In these substances, there may be some hormones that are responsible for infertility.

Prostaglandins
Prostaglandins are other hormones that are secreted by the endometrium normally. It helps in a lot of body processes that include various stages of menstrual cycle and pregnancy.
This hormone is required for a lot of functions such as ovulation, sperm mobility, and regression of corpus luteum, immune interaction, menstrual cramps and contraction of the uterus at birth.

Just like the endometrium, the implants also secrete these hormones. And the problem that is caused by the implant secreted prostaglandin hormone is that they are released in the abdomen and not in the womb. Moreover, they are not secreted at the right time, thus sending a wrong message to the brain.
A woman with a few days of pregnancy may face a miscarriage because the ovary will get a signal to start the menstrual cycle, and the womb lining where the egg is implanted will be expelled.
If you too are fearing of getting this disease, it's better to visit your Gynecologist soon.
