The shrinking back of the uterus to its natural shape and size may lead to the occurence of afterpains. It usually happens while breastfeeding as oxytocin, the hormone which encourages the uterus to contract is released during feeding.

Yes you can use it. Breaking of hymen can happen even when you are riding a bike. So it is not a guarantee for virginity.

A sore throat is experienced as pain or irritation in the throat. If you are experiencing a sore throat, it is most commonly due to a viral infection. You may have a sore throat with or without fever. If the throat pain is mild, then home remedies can be helpful. However, if the sore throat is accompanied by high fever or severe pain while swallowing food/water, it usually suggests a infection that needs treatment. In such cases, you need to seek medical help for early treatment.

Not only is testosterone linked to sexual arousal, but to overall reproductive health, including the menstrual cycle. If you are suffering from testosterone imbalance, you may experience some physical or emotional symptoms. High testosterone levels may cause menstrual irregularities by suppressing ovulation. High levels are also often caused by polycystic ovary syndrome (pcos), which can cause spotting, weight gain, and hair growth. On the other side, though low testosterone levels are not associated with irregular periods, they could lead to lethargy, tiredness, and loss of muscle mass. If you have an irregular menstrual cycle, or are looking for fertility advice, you should discuss it in detail for right medical consultation.

Can I use inlife breast firming cream for saggy breasts to make them tight and firm. Is there any side effects? Can I use or not. I'm a female with 23 years old unmarried. Please suggest me.

No allopathic medicine food or massage oil or exercise can make the breast grow. You may feel that it is increasing but this is only a feeling, massage causes arousal and increased blood supply for some time. Those who are serious about enlargement go for silicone or fat implant surgery.

Role Of Lasers In Gynaecology - Know The New Trend!

Role Of Lasers In Gynaecology - Know The New Trend!

The CO2 Laser Treatment was first used for the treatment of gynecological disorders in 1973. It was used for treating gynecological disorders including cervical intraepithelial neoplasia and microsurgery of the fallopian tube. Gynecological disorders like stress urinary incontinence, vaginal atrophy, and pelvic floor dysfunction are becoming very common these days. Nowadays, doctors practice Laser

Treatment to cure such problems.

In Laser Treatment, the laser beam is applied only to the affected tissue and has minimal impact on the non-target tissue. It is different from traditional technology and involves minimal thermal damage through laser beam on the internal organs. It is a safe and effective way to cure gynecological problems without the need for open surgery. Laser treatment is also used in the field of cosmetic gynecology for treating various conditions. These techniques involve Vaginal Rejuvenation, Labiaplasty, and Vaginoplasty.

Benefits of Laser Treatment in Gynecology

In the delicate surgeries like laparoscopy and hysteroscopy, the surgeons need to make sure that the laser beam penetration is minimum and not causing damage to the tissues of the internal organ. However, in the case of the CO2 Laser Treatment, the laser beams are very gentle. They are balanced with optimal thermal control and are precise so that the non-target areas are safe.

Some of the benefits of Laser Treatment in Gynecology are:

● The laser method is minimally invasive.

● The impact is restricted to the target tissue only.

● The post-surgery healing time is less.

● Minimum damage to healthy tissues.

● Fewer chances of recurrence of the disease.

● Minimal scarring.

● Simple and requires a few steps only.

● If the abdominal surgeries are coupled with laser technology, it will help surgeons to treat the lesions and reduce the chances of recurrence.

Laser Approach Used for Disease

Laser treatment in gynecology is used to treat the disease like

● Stress Urinary Incontinence: IncontiLase Laser Treatment is used to treat this disease. It involves the tightening of irradiated tissues to gain normal continence.

Pelvic Organ Prolapse: ProlapLase Laser Treatment is used to treat this disease. It involves tightening or narrowing of the diameter of the vaginal cavity and strengthening of the vaginal walls.

● Genitourinary Syndrome of Menopause: RenovaLase Laser Treatment is used to treat this problem. It involves vascularization of the vaginal wall to improve fluid content and provides relief from dryness, irritation, and burning.

● Abdominal Problems: The laser technology, when coupled with the Laparoscopy procedure, is used for abdominal surgeries. The procedure helps in less thermal damage to the tissues and more control over the target area. The surgeon can monitor the penetration to reduce the damage.

Endometriosis: Laser Treatment is very popular to treat the underlying disease like Endometriosis.

Take Away

Laser Treatment is a minimally invasive procedure to treat gynecological problems. The technique causes less damage to the surrounding healthy tissues while treating the problem. It can be opted for treating many gynecological problems; however, it is advisable to consult a doctor before going for this treatment.

Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding - How To Diagnose It?

Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding - How To Diagnose It?

As a woman goes through life, her hormonal levels change quite dramatically and this can be quite impactful. However, sometimes the impact is not a good one! This can be said to be the cause when it comes to dysfunctional uterine bleeding. This sort of bleeding occurs when the levels the hormones are at cause the menstrual cycle of the woman to become erratic.

Understanding the Diagnosis
When it comes to the diagnosis of an issue such as this, the process must include the ruling out of other more serious problems such as fibroids, a miscarriage, or even cancer which has affected the cervix or the uterus of the woman.

Treatment options
A doctor, post-ruling out these situations, will inform the patient, if dysfunctional uterine bleeding is what is being experienced. When it comes to the matter of how dysfunctional uterine bleeding is to be dealt with, it can be said that the best thing which is to be done is to sit down with the doctor and have a comprehensive chat with respect to what the solutions which are available at hand are.

  1. One of these solutions happens to be hormone treatment. However, it is to be kept in mind that this is usually only made use of in order to stop dysfunctional uterine bleeding which is very severe.
  2. If the woman is not experiencing bleeding which is this bad, a good solution could be non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, which are also known by their abbreviation, which is NSAIDs. Drugs such as ibuprofen are used quite widely when it comes to treating the issue of dysfunctional uterine bleeding. That being said, the matter of the best solution is something which is very subjective and the best judge of the same is only the doctor who has been apprised of all the facts which pertain to the case at hand.
  3. It is only in extreme cases that the uterus as a whole is removed, a process which goes by the name of hysterectomy. This sort of solution is only recommended when a woman does not wish to have any more children.
  4. If a woman who has been experiencing the problem of dysfunctional uterine bleeding is aged between the years of 19 and 39, a good and apt solution would be a combination of low dose hormonal contraceptive treatment along with progestin therapy.

Dysfunctional uterine bleeding is something which can mar a woman’s daily life, but it really needs not to be the case!
