Yes it is possible. But a full check up must be done in terms of regular ovulation and sperm count of your husband. Please meet a competent gynecologist.

This Is What Happens When You Suffer From Hormonal Imbalances

This Is What Happens When You Suffer From Hormonal Imbalances

Every woman likes to look into the mirror and find not an extra strand of hair on her face, be it the upper lip or near the ears. While it is not uncommon for women to have hair on these and other areas, most women resort to multiple ways to get rid of this. The pattern of this unnecessary hair growth is very similar to the pattern seen in males normally.

This condition of excessive hair growth is known as hirsutism and can be caused by multiple causes, as listed below.

  1. Genetic or racial: While the European women have a more clean face that is free of hair, the Mediterranean and Indian women are highly likely to have more facial hair growth. There is also a strong family history relation, and it is hereditary.
  2. Androgens (testosterone): This is a male hormone, essential for the development of male sexual characters. Though it is present in very minute amounts in all women, in some, there could be higher than these minimal levels, leading to minor masculine characters, facial hair being one of them.
  3. Hormonal imbalances: There are multiple hormonal issues which can manifest as increased facial hair growth. The two most common ones include polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) and adrenal conditions including tumours, Cushing's syndrome, and hyperplasia. In all these cases, there is increased amount of androgens, leading to excessive facial hair.
  4. Medication side effect: Some medications like testosterone, cyclosporine, anabolic steroids, and Minoxidil also lead to increased amounts of facial hair in women. Some other medications used to treat migraines, seizures, schizophrenia, and hypertension can also cause hirsutism. This is indirectly due to increased levels of male hormones in the system, producing these effects.
  5. Birth control pills: These also affect the hormone levels and lead to increased facial hair.
  6. Obesity: Most women with facial hair are also on the heavier side, and most people have a reduction in hair once weight is managed.

Treatment: The underlying cause should be treated for controlling hair growth. If there is an inducing medication, an alternative should be looked at. While hormone levels can be altered, in most cases, not much can be done. These need to be dealt with using one of the following methods - depilatory creams, waxing, plucking, shaving, laser reduction, electrolysis, and weight loss.

When reading through the above, it is obvious that a lot of causes for hirsutism point towards hormones. This also helps identify hormonal abnormalities in the earlier stages. This helps to identify hormonal disorders in their earlier stages, which are managed with lesser complications. The next time you feel there is more hair on your chin or cheeks, get your hormone levels checked.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Nearly 8 Lakh Cancers Linked To High BMI, Diabetes: Study

Nearly 8 Lakh Cancers Linked To High BMI, Diabetes: Study

Diabetes and excess weight were behind nearly 6% of new cancer cases, around 8 lakhs, across the globe in 2012, as per a study.

Published Tuesday in The Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology, the study analyzed 7,92,600 cases reported from 175 countries around the world. The study found that of the new cases in 18 kinds of cancer, 5,44,300 were attributable to high BMI, equivalent to 3.9 per cent of all cancers — nearly double that of the 2,80,100 cases attributable to diabetes (2 per cent).


Should it ring alarm bells for India?

The findings are important for India as, with an estimated 62 million diabetics, the country is widely considered the diabetes capital of the world.

Also, for India, the BMI obesity cut-off has been lowered from the global 25 kg/m2 to 22 kg/m2, given the proneness of Indians to truncal (abdominal) obesity, that increases the risk of various ailments.

Please suggest. can I eat purslane leafy vegetable during pregnancy it is safe for baby or not.
Hi lybrate-user Purslane is richest source of Omega 3 fatty acids and OXALATE minerals. It also has ALA which prevents Cardiac diseases But as you are pregnant, this Purslane will NOT BE ADVISABLE to you. As it can increase uterine contractions. And Can lead to miscarriage. So better avoiding PURSLANE in pregnancy.

Blood Clots - 4 Common Signs That Indicate It!

Blood Clots - 4 Common Signs That Indicate It!

Blood clots can be alarming, more so during pregnancy. The seriousness is much more because of the baby growing inside you. However, the good part is that this condition is considerably rare.
However, one can take steps to minimize the risks of this condition during pregnancy.

What is a blood clot?
Blood clots develop when the platelets obstruct blood flow. Normally, this happens after any injury or a cut, in order to prevent continuous bleeding. During pregnancy, blood clots act as a safeguard against losing excessive blood at the time of labor. Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is however, a serious condition wherein a blood clot forms within the leg’s deep veins or the pelvic area. DVT is linked to Pulmonary Embolism, a condition wherein a blood clot ruptures and travels all the way to the lungs’ blood vessels.

Bear in mind that statistically, a blood clot may affect one or two out of every 1000 women. So there should be no real alarm unless you realize that you could be at risk. The risks of this condition are at their highest, either during the initial six weeks post-childbirth or the first 3-4 months post pregnancy.

The risk factors are:

  1. Family history of DVT
  2. Smoking or having been exposed to passive smoke
  3. Age- especially above the age of 35
  4. Being overweight or obese
  5. Sedentary lifestyle devoid of any exercise
  6. Childbirth via a C-section

Common symptoms:
Although rare, some of the common symptoms include:

  1. Pain or swelling in the affected leg
  2. Pelvic pain
  3. Pain that deteriorates while walking/moving around
  4. Abnormally large veins

Possible complications:
Placental abruption or blood clots in the placenta

  1. Stroke
  2. Heart attack
  3. Miscarriage
  4. Pulmonary Embolism

Treatment and prevention
Adopting a healthier way of life by following a proper diet and exercising regularly is the basic preventive measure you can take. Discuss the type of exercises you can do with the healthcare provider. Exercising regularly ensures better circulation, thus averting the formation of blood clots. Now is as good a time as ever when it comes to quitting tobacco. An anticoagulant will be administered that prevents blood clotting.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
