I noticed that my ribs are more obvious when I lie down, right underneath my boobs. What could be the cause of this? My stomach is flat but not completely, my waist is 30. 5 inches. I don't think i'm skinny enough for my ribs to be showing when I lie down. Is everything ok?

Dear user, that is completely normal. Unless you have breathlessness or fever you need not worry. It is a normal phenomenon as gravity plays a role in the skin from falling back and lying over the ribs. Your ribs will be more obvious even when you raise your hands above your head as an act of streching. You can consult me for more doubts regarding this online by clicking on my photo and booking an appointment however, if you found my answer helpful, please leave a positive feedback as it helps me with my practice. Thank you.

Dear lybrate-user, 1st of all. Congratulation for baby girl. Pregabalin can have some effects as its little amount is secreted in breast milk. So better to stop or change the medication.

Welcome user. As you have problem of frequent menses this month and also so you had copper t for family planning before 2 years. As your family members telling you that this kind of thing has been occurs from copper t. In such cases there true. This is right thing that you have period problem is due to hormonal changes but there are lots of reasons for how much changes and one of the reason is copper t. So first of all you should have to visit gynecologist and ask their the issue is from copper t or not and mostly this type of problem it needed to remove copper t. In such cases after some months main property works very sensible and that's why sometimes continuous bleeding and frequent periods seems. After removing copper t please wait and watch for a one or two monthsand ayurveda doctor for proper treatment.

Dear User, the uterine wall or the endometrium thickens as it is getting ready to get implanted in case of a pregnancy. In case of no implantation of the embryo, the endometrium sheds getting ready for the next cycle and this goes on and on and on every month. The shedding is when the woman has her so called "periods" as it sheds out through the vagina. If you found my answer helpful, please leave a Positive feedback as it helps me with my Practice.

Dear User, switching to menstrual cup is a good choice provided you keep it clean after use and maintain proper hygiene after usage and during cleaning. If not chances for an infection are great such as a PID which will affect the whole Genitourinary system. You can read the instructions on cleaning and hygiene on the pamphlet with the cup.If you found my answer helpful, please leave a Positive feedback as it helps me with my Practice. Thank you.

I have some 6 months back expired sanitary pads. So can I use that? While using that have any problem.
I am sorry to hear about your concern but will be happy to assist you. It is better to avoid use of very old pads (more than 2 - 3 years and condition of packing) because it may contain some fungal growth. Sanitary pads are not supposed to be sterile like medical syringes etc, so if they have crossed the expiry date, they could be used. Let's connect over a call so that we can discuss your concern in details and make a suitable treatment plan for you.
