 What is the cost of normal delivery and operation cost in chennai

21 .

 i was anemic but was not able to know the reason but after getting married i got tensed because of this as i have to plan for a baby in near future so HB should remain normal above 10. It use to remain 7 earlier. I discussed the same with my doctor she advised some tests and it is diagnosed that i am Thal-minor. Moreover my blood group is AB negative. My age is 28 and half year. I got married in 2010 and completed two years. Now me and my husband are planning in another 6 months we will start planning for a baby. SO is it advisable? or i will face some problems if i delay it for 6 months. Another thing is my doctor has given me some Folic acid tablets which i am taking regularly and which has increased my HB to 12 but since i am thal minor so my doctor advised to continue these tablets till the time i am not planning anything. My another question is my doctor has given me Trapic MF tablet since my bleeding is more and she suggested I can take it for long run. Please advise.

 I know that when you have an iron shot administered it has to be done in hospital under a professional. Is it possible, if you were going on a long vacation and needed the iron shots -as they worked better than a supplement- to take them with you? If so, do they need to be kept refrigerated, or can they survive at room temp out of sunlight etc? (I'd like to know the second part of that question even if the answer is no to the first part)

Can you switch between having iron shots and tablets in general or do people usually stick to one or the other? When would iron shots be more recommended?- When they're anaemia is very severe? Hope you can help, I can't find a particular expert for this question.

 Hello just wondering if an ultrasound can tell the difference between 13 weeks and 15 weeks.. I had an ultrasound dating my 13 weeks 3 days.. I just want to know if it could be off by two weeks? Also the ultrasound gave me a lmp of 10/18/2011 due 7/24/2012 but my actual lmp 10/27/2011 gave me due date of 8/2/2012 which one would be more accurate because the first one means I concieved two days after my period and I heard your fertile 14 days AFTER your period!?!?? And to caculate conception you just remove two weeks correct?

Hi Doctor,

              I am 25 years old. I and my husband have been trying for a baby for the last one year. We consulted a doctor and as per his prescription i had 'duoluton L' for 21 days that started from 6th day (i.e. Jan 26) of my last periods (Jan22). And i am also having 'Thyronorm 25mg' for the last one and a half months. This time my periods (started Feb 22nd, my period cycle is 30-31 days and it was due on the same day as per cycle) looks bit different compared to the usual one. I am not having much bleeding and pain comes off and on. From the 1st day onwards it’s discharging brown fleshy type of things with not having much bleeding. Usually in the 2nd day of period i will have heavy bleeding, which was not there this time. Even in the 3rd day of periods, was still discharging brown and dark red fleshy type of things sometimes with blood clots also. This time I had only 3days of periods, usually I have 4 or 5 days of periods. We had an unprotected sex on last February 4th. My breasts are also looking enlarged. I am not having any other feelings.So i just want to know, is it because of any side effects of medicines that i am having or should i take any pregnancy test, if so, When?. Or should i consult a doctor for this?.

I would like to know if I had sex on October 23rd, then had a period on October 28th can I be pregnant from that October the 23rd date? Then again on November 7th and 12th I had sex.My next question is I went in for an ultrasound on January 27th and the ultrasound screen said I was 12w5 days. Does that mean 12w 5 days from my last period or from the date I concieved? How does the ultrasound determine gestational age if it doesn't know the exact day of my period? Does the machine do calculations based on the average size of babies? Please help..I'm confused!!

34 .

Hello. I'd appreciate any kind of advice on my issue. I've been bleeding usually after sex but sometimes for no apparent reason. I'm on seasonique and have been for 2yrs now and have never had this problem. I've been tested for stds/hiv and everything came back clean (this was a month ago). I asked the gyn and she said finish this pack and if its still a problem I might have to change birth control. Why would this be happening out of the blue though? Its freaking me out. I also took a pregnancy test. Negative.

I was an IVF patient and am now 25 weeks pregnant with twins.  I have PCOS (just as an aside as this can affect blood sugar relating to my question)My OB told me that IVF twins have a higher rate of preterm labour and she suggested to me that I take 2 injections 12mg each, 48 hours apart of betamethasone to help with preterm labour and if it does occur it can help with infant respiration and bleeding into the brain.  I know this is not an "infertility" question, however your knowledge has always been right on the mark in questions I've asked before and would really love your opinion on it.  I do not have Diabetes, gestational or otherwise and blood sugar is not an issue and the pcos is mild.  I am not overweight and have gained thus far in the 25 weeks of pregnancy about 25-30 pounds. 

Thanks for your time!

I have a small bump under my arm after I shaved my armpit. After 1-2 days I had a sharp pain in my breast. The pain in the breast comes and goes throughout the day. The pain is worse at night and less painful during the day. The bump under my arm was gone after 2-3 days.

It has been 2 weeks now. I don't feel any lump in breast. Had an Ultrasound and nothing showed up. Have a little pain in the nipple.I don't have any rash.My breast not swallen.

Do you know what might be the problem? do you think this can be inflamatory breast cancer?

I am 18 and quiet a sporty person and a period for me is just a waste of time, and a pain that I don't need,as i NEVER want to or will get pregnant. I tend to get mine irregularly which I believe is due to being very active at some times. But I wish these times when I don't have my period(so far lasting between months and around a year) would last forever, I find them great, though I know this isn't really a good sign, and isn't healthy. But I always eventually get my period back when I aren't doing as much exercise.

I am fully set on adopting no matter what; I believe there are too many people in need of help in the world, and far too many people in the world anyway, and i'm sure i NEVER want to be pregnant.

So, all I want to know is, is there a safe way to never get your period if you are 1OO% sure that you NEVER want to be pregnant?

Hi I am 35-years-old with a 5-year-old daughter. I have few questioins as we are planning to have a second baby. Firstly is it ok to have a second baby at this age. Will i conceive without any problems. My LMP was on 29th june 2011, we tried during the ovulation period, i.e., from 10th -14th of this month. My cycle is 28 days. I was pretty sure of getting pregnant as we tried during the right time (ovulation) but now am little worried cos since this morning, i have a feeling that i would get my periods, cos of cramping and also little discomfort. Is this normal...i know its not but i am scared to accept it. I would be really disappointed if i dont conceive now. I would turn 36 by May 2012 and i wanted to deliver the baby before that and was planning according to this cos i heard tht there would be lot of problems after 36. Is this true? kindly help and suggest me something on this. Thank you.

 Hello doctor,

i am 28 yrs old and trying to conceive. i friend of mine suggested to take folic acid supplements asap. is it required and should i consult a doctor before starting or which one to take, can you name the supplement?  since i am already trying to conceive or may have conceived, how important is folic acid now?   Thanks 

 

72 .

Dear Dr,

My name is Aparna living in Kuwait.  My second child is 11 months old.  Normally  I get my periods in 30-40 days.  I got my last periods on 5/3/2011.  Since I still did not get my periods I went in for a pregnancy test with the kit and found that I am pregnant.  We were using condom.  We do not want the 3rd child and would like to go in for abortion.  It is illegal to abort here, so I have to come to India for the procedure.  Upto when can I go in for abortion (please give me a tentative date) as I have to plan for my trip.  What would be the method by which the abortion would be done and can I also go in for sterilisation together as we do not want anymore pregnancies.

Hello Doctor,

My first pregnancy was miscarried in 13 weeks. In second pregnancy, doctors said that i have very short cervix and need to do a cerclage. It was done in 11th week and again while doing USG in 20th week cervix was found open so cerclage was done for the second time. But even after this, at 21st week all waters came out and pain was induced and baby delivered pre-maturedly and dead.

Now i am advised to avoid preganacy for next 1 year. Is there any treatment for this ? Please help me out in this. I am very confused.

Hello Dr,

I am 26 yrs old, and was detected with Thyroid problem 2 yrs back. My TSH levels had gone up to 12(initially when it was detected it was 5.6). I was taking homeopathy for sometime, and later I had to take registrone tablets for delaying my cycles. After that, my TSH levels shot up to 15. Now, I am taking Electroxin regularly. But still, my cycles are not normal. I have to take registron tablets, then only they are normal. If I stop the tablets, my cycle goes irruegular again(Last cycle date was in november). I am married for 4 years now, and have a 3 yr old girl born in 2008. Please advise what should I do. Should I be going for homeopathy?

My cousin was diagnosed about 6 months ago as having ovarian cysts (polycystic).

 Hello doctor.. I've got copper T inserted after 4 months of my delivery. That was in the last week of April. I delivered in the month of December last year. I've had spotting since then and it is still continuing. Not only spotting but my periods is also very irregular. Sometimes it comes right after 28 days, otherwise there is just 15 days gap between my periods. Also before there is spotting i get lower abdomen pain which is similar to the pain when there is regular periods.. (Cramps like pain). The white discharge also has increased eversince the copper T was inserted. But there is no foul smell during the white discharge. Would this spotting continue, doctor?? Is this condition normal or should I get it checked with my gynaec? After every period I do check the status of the Copper T by feeling the thread. I can feel it.

151 .

Dear Doctor,

I'm Srividya, i have a 11 months old girl baby, during my 36th week of pregnancy we took a usual scan and that time doctor findout that my baby is short and all her long bones are short, at or below the 5th percentile (i didnt remember the exact issue but this is how it written in report), and doctor told me this may be because of your height (my height is 4.11 below normal and my dad and mum every one is somewhat similar i mean short)

And also doctor told me that nothing to worry and this will not create problem, she will be small when born but your baby will reach upto your height.  As she said when she born she was just 2.2 kg and very short..

And here is my problem, now she is ok.. i mean she looks like a normal baby with normal height.. what abou the future? As the doctor said, will she reach only my height? or is there any exceptions in this case (my hubby is  5.8 and will she cross above 5?)

if she can reach only my height what else i can do to increase her height?  suggest me some health drink like complan or pediasure.. and fromwhich age i can start it to her, she is now 11 months

Thanks doctor,

Srividya

Dear Doctor,

We have completed 1 year after marriage and trying for baby. I did my semen analysis and found to have low sperm count for which doctor suggested MAXOZA powder and ARG9 for 3 months. Im taking this for the past 1 month.

I have some basic questions:

After my ejaculation in her vagina, i dont normally remove penis for atleast 10 minutes. Once I remove, I can see some semen comes out. Is it normal? or is it due to small size of penis? How can we retain the semen that comes out after intercourse?

Thanks and awaiting ur reply.

I am 39 years old. I went through a Pap Smear test as a part of regular health checkup. The report says:

Cellularity- Smears are moderately cellular and evenly spread.

Epithelial Component- The epithelial component comprises mostly of superficial, intermediate & few parabasal cells. Epithelial cells are showing degenerative features and vaculation.

Background -The background is dirty and comprises of dense clusters of acute inflammatory cells.

Impression- Cervical smear- Inflammatory smear

Advice- Repeat smear after adequate therapy.

You are kindly requested to please clarify this problem and what is its treatment.The ultrasonogrphy reports mentions about bulky uterus. I am quite worried about the same and want to avoid any problem relating to uterus as my mother also went through the removal of uterus at her 50s.

Thanks and Regards,

Thank you very much and waiting for your valuable reply

 Hi madam,

i’am 24, and i had PCOD, so i undergone laparoscopic surgery.

But during the surgery doctor diagnosed that both the fallopian tubes were completely blocked.

and they tried to open that by pumping out. but, it didn’t worked out

So, they advised me to go for IVF. So, we decided to do it.

My clitoris are abnormal (over sized, around 2cm). So, i had a karyotype analysis. The result was normal.

My doubt is:-

If my baby is a girl will this affect my baby....? i mean, will the baby get abnormal clitoris as mine?

Will the baby too will get affected by fallopian tube blocks?

And also please tell whether gender selection is legal in India or not?

217 .

Hi Doctor, My daughter had her first menstrual period before 12 years old.(i.e)11yrs and 8months.Is there any problem regarding that

Dear Doc,

My daughter is 1.3 now and I am NOT planning on having another child for at least another 2 years. That is until she turns at least 3 / 4. I will be 30 / 31 by then - IS IT OK TO HAVE THE SECOND CHILD BY THEN????

Also, can you plz let me know of the best contraceptive measure available now??? I do NOT want to go in for anything injected or take any pills as I have heard from so many Gynies that they both have unpredictable consequences. I am a little confused as to what I should do.

Thankz a ton!!!

Dr, I have a one and a half year old kid. I had stopped feeding one year back, but milk flow still not fully stopped. If I squeeze, milk is leaking a little.

Could there be any other problem? Kindly clarify.

 Hello doctor,

How safe it is to take depo-provera injection? I had endometriosis two yrs back and it was removed by laprascopy. I conceived right after that and have a healthy baby boy who is 15 months old. For the past 4-5 months my periods were extremely painful, similar to those when i had endometriosis and when consulted my gyn,,,she advised me to take depo - provera and explained that endometriosis can relapse again. I've already taken one shot but still am skeptical about it. Please enlighten me.

One of my friend is expecting her second baby,she like to do family planning after this..Is it better to do it if it is a c-section or if it is normal delivery,when can we do it,after some months or some say can do it after stopping feeding to baby?whichis the best one?

243 .

Dear Doctor,

I have a problem, but i feel little bit  shy to ask this.I gave birth in 2006, it was a C-section. After my delivery I got a small skin protrusion near my anus.It didn't pain at all. Everyone in my house said because of delivery my body would have got heat, so a slight piles problem.I didn't consult any doctor at that time. But still that protrusion is there. I don't have any pain there.But once i had constipation problem, at that time i had pain and a slight bleeding from that protrusion.

Now suddenly i got scared, whether that will lead to any serious problem. I am 28 years old now.Please help me doctor. Please let me know what i should do regarding this.

Thank You,

Hi Doctor,

I was having pain in my lower abdomen and back as well as intercorse was always painful since my delievery, my baby is now 8 months oid [he was a ceserian birth]. I am having regular normal periods after he completed his 6 month i.e. after I started his solids but still I am breastfeeding him as he is not taking some other milk.

Yesterday pain was so much and I was feeling so weekness so I went to doctor. I had my ultrasound and the Doctor said my Uterus is very thick/ big in size and its a very serious situation. she said if I want to plan 2nd baby I need to do that soon becuase situation will get worse with the time. Its a very hard decision for me as my baby is just 8 months old and I cant take care of 2 babies at this time as I am a working women as well as m nt at all mentlay ready for this situation.

Can you please advice me on this situation doctor and may I know is this a very serious issue? If yes why it happened like that and what are the alternatives to cure it.

I would be very thankful to u..!!

After one and a half year she  is convceived, it is fifth week now, last week she met the Doctor ,they told  that the fetus doesnot have the enough growth , and they told to wait for a week for next check up.she is very upset she donot know what to do. can you  please suggest  any idea Doctor

254 .

Hello Doctor!

Your answers for my previous question where really helpful thanks lot.

I just need your your suggestion on the below situation.I am now 30 weeks pregnant.

I have had all my treatment till now in one of the renowned hospitals in Tnagar.She has been Good till now and no probs.As of now all are normal except my HB% as 9.5 and i am taking injection on alternative days as iron tab that i took previously was not that helpful.

Now my wish is to have the pregnancy in the same hospital and my doctor also suggest that as i conceived after 3 yrs and though dint have any spl treatment except some Vitamin TABs initailly  and thyroid was in lower normal and had fertibex.

But my mom and inlaws are from Tirunelveli they want me to come there.They are equally adament that it would be convienient for all if i could have my delivary there.Problem is all are working  and no one is in  a situation to avail leave for a month to stay with me here.I can understant their situation as well that its a bit critical to avail leave for 1 month.I knew that those docs are also equally good.

I am too confused.Though i am trying hard to make up my mind to go to home town, i dont know why i am not that happy mentally.Physically i wont be having any probs where ever it might be.But mentally !!?

Now i feel that i am left alone i dont know anyone here to to assist me during this period and totally upset for the past 2 weeks becaz of this issue!!:(

I m also concerned  that this mindset should not affect my baby inside.

Should i stay here as my docs advice or should i go there as my family members say.I am sure your advise would be greatly helpful.Thanks a lot

273 .

Hello Doctor!

Your reply was useful.Thanks a lot.

I am 20 wks pregnant ,i was adviced by elders in my family that after this period we should be carefull while sleeping and should not roll on bed.

I always sleep on either left or right side.

But while changing the side from right to left or otherwise ,should i get up sit  and then turn to my other side?actually its really hard for me to follow this as it disturbs my sleep.

I usually change the sleeping side by lying on back then to other side i could not get up for this!

I was advised that if i dont follow this my baby neck might be rounded up with amblical cord.Is this a myth or a fact?

Please advise!

Hello doc,

My baby will be celebrating her 2nd birthday this april. Her birth weight was 2.5 kgs and now she weighs 10.1kgs. Because she looks lean everyone comments that its bettre she puts on some weight! but she is also a fussy eater.its takes an hour to give her every feed. and atleast 15mins to make her drink a glass of milk. This is her days menu breakfast(upma, idly anything we eat)at 9am, 4ounce of milk at 10.30, luch(rice and rasam and very little of cooked vegitable) at 12.30,a glass full or milk at 5pm, a banana at 7pm and dinner(rice and rasam)at 8.30pm. She seems to be happy with this alone and is not comfortable with any change. Is this diet enough for her to be healthy? can i start giving her any health drink with milk? Do i have to make any changes?

277 .

- Physical other than the weight change from 53 to 63kgs I have been experiencing bad headaches on the second day of my periods ( which i didn't have before my pregnancy). Is this a problem?

Thanks for your response to my earlier question. It has been 6 weeks from the date of D&C and i still do not have my period. I fear this is due to the pre-exsisting PCOS condition.  Earlier I had taken norethindrone(Aygestin) to jump start my period, took 5mg tablets twice a day for 10 days and then got my period.  I'm also on metformin.  Please advise if I'm on the right track.

Your response is greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks once again!

 hello doctor, 

I am a mother of 2 kids aged 4 and 1. They were all born normally.. The problem is that of late I am getting a feeling that my husband is not intimate with me. He does not like sex at all.. He is ready to sit and talk with me for any amount of time but when i ask him why we are not getting physically close, he says he just has no interest. I can understand it to a certain extent but often i feel i am rejected.. This makes me feel low and it affects my daily routine sometimes. I am not able to concentrate on anything..  Nowadays he says he is tensed abt the way i feel.. Every day i hate to go to bed itself... 

PLease help. Is it normal for him to feel that way.. am i over reacting... i thought he wud change soon... but as days go by if i just leave him alone he just goes far and far..

What is your advice? PLease advice.

Hello,

I recently had my CS along with sterilization on November 26th.  My first delivery was also CS.  Being away from home and necessity to start work immediately, I just could take better rest for the first month after delivery.  After that, I am taking care of all my home chores and working from home as editor for medical transcription.  Apart from occasional backache and tiredness, i have no health issues.  Today the health center representative of our area warned me that i am inviting problems by lifting buckets and doing all jobs and would have problems like uterus moving down etc.,  I'm a bit scared.. could you please throw some light on this?

 Hello

My daughter is 3 years old but does not eat properly. Her intake is either plain rice without any curry or ghee, just plain rice, or plain dosa without chutney. The only thing that she likes is chicken even it is spicy but the one that is got from shops and not the one made at home.

I've tried everything but in vain. Not even rasam or curd or dal. Please help, she is starting school this June. She vomits if I force her. 

Thanks & Regards

Hello Doctor, I went for an ultra sound scan today which is the sixth week of my pregnancy. This is my second pregnancy. The doctor said that he could detect two gestational sacs and has asked me to come for another scan on March 25th. I am worried because there is only one case of twin pregnancy in my family, that too in my father's side. Is it possible that I could be carrying twins? Any early symptoms that I shoud watch out for? I only feel nauseous but no vomitting till now. Please advise.

Hello Dr, I delivered a boy baby (normally) on july 11th 2008. I got myfirst period after 4months from his birth. then i started using the contraceptive pill called ZEROGEN last month (17-02-2009  as this the day1 of my period). Dr prescribed this pill as i am still nursing my baby. He is 8 months old now. while using the pill regularly i got periods again within 15days. i still have 13pills in that pack. i got my second period 3rd of this month. Wat could be the reason for it?

Last month when i visted my gyneac i found out that i have reduced  weight tremendously in a short span of time,i was 45 kgs where now i am only 41.2 kgs, she had asked me to take some tests , the result found to be normal but my thyroid showed positive it was out of range ( 7.26). She has asked me continue the tablet - thyrox 25 for a month , after taking the medication i feel better but ive not gained weight. My food intake is also good and i fell hungry as well.Can u help me or suggest how can i put on healthy weight or do i have to contact a thyroid specialist  with regard to this...

Hello Doc,

I am 15 weeks pregnant and consulting an infertility specialist in TNagar.

All my health condition including Blood sugar pressure ,Urine sugar are normal.

Until now doctor has taken some scans to see the baby and we saw the movement of the baby in scan by 13 week.

I am taking an weekly injection which is hydro progesterone named as progress depot 250 and Amlife 5000 untill 12th week.

I do take some vita tabs 4 tabs daily.

Should i take any other test other that this above said to make sure that the baby is completely normal.

I really need your help in this. i hada miscarraige and the reason behind that was highly suspected to be blighted ovum before a year.

i had an antiD injection afer that as my Rh is negetive

After that i had thyroid test and s.prolactin anticardiolipin and was adviced that everything was normal.

Before this pregnancy i had a Endometriom and got that choclate cyst removed by laproscopy method.This is four  month before this pregnacy

Please advice if i need to take another test to make sure baby is completely normal and healthy.

Regards,

Sasi

I am in my third pregnancy (8+ weeks old now). I have two healthy boys aged 5 and 3. I am 29 yrs old and weigh about 69kgs now and my height is 5 '2'. I am dreading all the weight I will put especially after this pregnancy. I used to be in 50's when I conceived for my first baby.

hello doctor,

help me...im going infertility treatment..doctor is doing fs every month.....no pbm my follicle ruptures every month....but this time my follicle din rupture...doc put injection....yet size is only decreased...doc told sometimes size will decrease and it will rupture....what will be the pbm....this is the first time happend like this plz help me.doctor told some free fluid is there what is that?


 

FS is done to find out if you are developing egg in that cycle.Why do you do follicular study every month if you are developing follicle?.if follicle does not develop ,then we give medicines and see if follicle develops in the next cycle.follicle decrease also taken as rupture .free fluid in the POD is another evidence of follicular rupture .unless you are doing IUI, you don’t need FS everymonth.Based on what date your follicle ruprures ,you plan your contact with your husband around that time.once in a while follicle may develop but may not ruprure for which they have given the injection

I have irregular period because of my hypo thyroid.  I have small follicle to get rid of.  What food should I eat get rid of these follicle? I been trying to get pregnant but my thyroid level getting better now. Please offer me some advises.  Thanks

Small follicles are evidence of POLYCYSTIC OVARIES.Once formed they will always be there..To prevent further worsening avoid sweets and fried items.It is good to take sprouts when you are trying to conceive.Your thyroid values should be normal before you become pregnant

I have been on my nuvaring for over two years, and just had my first experience spotting, with a dark brown tint, I did accidentally replace my nuvaring two days late though, could that be the cause, or should I worry about a possible pregnancy?
 

Could be the delay in replacement may be the cause.but if you have symptoms of pregnancy kindly do a urine test for pregnancy

I had my tubes tied 4 yrs ago,and last march I had right tube and ovary removed. How do they make sure you don't get pregnat with only one tube? How to they fix just on tube?
 

The right tube and ovary must have been removed because of ectopic pregnancy I guess.There is 1 in 300 chance of ectopic pregnancy in family planning operation.It is very difficult to predict.There is no 100% assurance for anything in medicine.

I have had Ammenorrea for three months and I now have my period back . Why are the menstral cramps so much worse now
 

Please ruleout pregnancy and abortion.If there is no possibility of pregnancy ,purely increased flow can produce much pain.Have an ultrasound done .

Hello Dr. Iam married for 4yrs. diagnosed with pcos.taking metformin.Had abortion for first baby 3yrs back.Planing for a baby now. But there is a pain during intercourse.using lubic gelly.but still pain is there.gynocaligist says iam not relaxing.is there any medicine to avoid pain
 

The pain during intercourse may be because of

1.dryness-increasing the foreplay will help to increase the vaginal secretions and hence pain will be reduced

2.there can be infection –has to be treated by relevant medicines

3.can be due to endometriosis which can be diagnosed by laparoscopy.

4.it can be because you are not relaxing which again can be due to pain.

Rather than taking pain killers the route cause has to be treated

i am 32 weeks pregnant. doctor say my child has less growth as compared to this stage. also I am having less amount of raw vegetables. ias it safe. guide me about safe delivery options and exercises i have to go through. my d.o.b. is 11 th june 1981. its my first pregnancy after pcod.date of delivery is 15 aug 2012. wt is 74 kg. and height is 5'6' before concving wt was 63.5 kg.

Dear ,you eat normal food,your doctor might give additional supplements .supplements may not increase the weight .eating raw vegetables is alright if it is severe growth retardation ,the doctor might opt for c-section. It also depends on whether the fluid around the baby is normal,the presentation of the baby,the nature of the cervix,(the mouth of the uterus)

Hi madam,

I am trying to get pregnant for 1 and a half yrs with no success. I have a retroverted uterus and chocolate cyst. But my dr told as that is not a problem. I had mu follicle study and it is also normal. Then i took HSG scan and it is also normal. Dr asked me to come after three months if i wont get pregnant. What will be the next step of treatment i need to have? Whether retroverted uterus and cyst will be the problem?

For retroverted uterus ,after having contact lie down with your face down,and hip up,like you do while worshiping on the floor.the chocolate cyst is an indication of a condition called endometriosis.it can cause infertility.you might have to undergo laparoscopy .with treatment it is possible to conceive naturally

Hi,
 
I had two consequent abortions.The doctors told that there was no heart beat in the fetus...Has anyone experienced this bitter experience...I'm so depressed due to this and have no idea what to do next....when i had abortion for the first time.. doctor's told that it is kinda nomal and i will continue to have a healthy pregnancy next time.. but the 2nd time was also a missed abortion.. is ter any treatment for it...
what is the reason for having fetus with no heart beat..
 
Pls help me

I understand your anxiety.But please remember if 100 pregnancies happen ,about 20 % will be aborted.The main reason for that is the fetus which was formed was not chromosomally normal which again is a random process.One or two abortions are common in everyone’s life .Please consider it as a small accident and try again.we normally check for Hb%,bloosd sugar ,thyroid,antiphospholipid antibodies ,karyotyping of both the partners, if there are more than 3 abortions.

 I am 20 weeks pregnant & one of my friend suggest me to take the powder of walnuts,cashews, almonds & all other dry fruits are includes in this . if anyone has idea about the name please suggest me...

Thanks
 

Nuts should be taken only in limited quantity during pregnancy or otherwise also.one or two pieces of anyone of these nuts will be sufficient.too much of it will make you put on weight more than normal,which is not advised.dry fruits are not needed. You take fresh fruits.dry fruits are for people who are under weight .

 i was anemic but was not able to know the reason but after getting married i got tensed because of this as i have to plan for a baby in near future so HB should remain normal above 10. It use to remain 7 earlier. I discussed the same with my doctor she advised some tests and it is diagnosed that i am Thal-minor. Moreover my blood group is AB negative. My age is 28 and half year. I got married in 2010 and completed two years. Now me and my husband are planning in another 6 months we will start planning for a baby. SO is it advisable? or i will face some problems if i delay it for 6 months. Another thing is my doctor has given me some Folic acid tablets which i am taking regularly and which has increased my HB to 12 but since i am thal minor so my doctor advised to continue these tablets till the time i am not planning anything. My another question is my doctor has given me Trapic MF tablet since my bleeding is more and she suggested I can take it for long run. Please advise.

 

 You can plan for pregnancy after 6 months

Continue folic acid tablets till you become pregnant

You can use trapic MF during periods time to reduce the blood flow

 Lately I have been having all over body aches, fatigue, headaches, and joint pain.  I had some blood work done to check for nutrtional deficiencies and it showed I was anemic again, plus deficient in Vitamins D, K, and C.  My ferritin level was around 9.

 

 The iron deficiency anemia can cause the symptoms you have described.

The treatment for GERD can reduce iron absorption .

If you are not able to tolerate oral iron you can have iron injections

 I know that when you have an iron shot administered it has to be done in hospital under a professional. Is it possible, if you were going on a long vacation and needed the iron shots -as they worked better than a supplement- to take them with you? If so, do they need to be kept refrigerated, or can they survive at room temp out of sunlight etc? (I'd like to know the second part of that question even if the answer is no to the first part)

Can you switch between having iron shots and tablets in general or do people usually stick to one or the other? When would iron shots be more recommended?- When they're anaemia is very severe? Hope you can help, I can't find a particular expert for this question. 

 Iron injections can be taken with you.they need not be refrigerated.room temp is fine .no drug should be allowed exposure to sunlight.you can switch between injections and tablets.iron injections are prescribed when the person is not able to tolerate oral iron or if there is severe iron deficiency anemia

 Hello just wondering if an ultrasound can tell the difference between 13 weeks and 15 weeks.. I had an ultrasound dating my 13 weeks 3 days.. I just want to know if it could be off by two weeks? Also the ultrasound gave me a lmp of 10/18/2011 due 7/24/2012 but my actual lmp 10/27/2011 gave me due date of 8/2/2012 which one would be more accurate because the first one means I concieved two days after my period and I heard your fertile 14 days AFTER your period!?!?? And to caculate conception you just remove two weeks correct?

 

 LMP-means the first day of the last menstrual period

The due date is calculated by adding 7 days and subtracting 3 months

We do not deduct 2 weeks as you say eventhough the conception occurs around the 14 th day after periods

The first trimester scan can have difference of one week plus or minus.

If there is dfference more than that the date fixed by the scan will be reliable especially if your periods are not strictly 28 day cycle

Dear Doctor,

I am 25 years old and my husbands age is 31.

I got married just before 10 months( 20-april-2011).And we planned to have baby after 1 year.

But due to relatives pressure also with personal interests, we have decided to have baby at our 8th month itself.

We are trying to get conceived for the past 3 months. but still now no.

I have my periods regularly.i am worried now.

I would like to know should we undergo medical test now.

or should we wait for some more months?

please let me know your advices



 even if everything is normal the chances for conception in one particular cycle is around 20 %.at the end of one year 70% of the people conceive.so keep trying for few more months.

It is better to have your haemoglobin,sugar and thyroid checked before conception

Hi Doctor,

              I am 25 years old. I and my husband have been trying for a baby for the last one year. We consulted a doctor and as per his prescription i had 'duoluton L' for 21 days that started from 6th day (i.e. Jan 26) of my last periods (Jan22). And i am also having 'Thyronorm 25mg' for the last one and a half months. This time my periods (started Feb 22nd, my period cycle is 30-31 days and it was due on the same day as per cycle) looks bit different compared to the usual one. I am not having much bleeding and pain comes off and on. From the 1st day onwards it’s discharging brown fleshy type of things with not having much bleeding. Usually in the 2nd day of period i will have heavy bleeding, which was not there this time. Even in the 3rd day of periods, was still discharging brown and dark red fleshy type of things sometimes with blood clots also. This time I had only 3days of periods, usually I have 4 or 5 days of periods. We had an unprotected sex on last February 4th. My breasts are also looking enlarged. I am not having any other feelings.So i just want to know, is it because of any side effects of medicines that i am having or should i take any pregnancy test, if so, When?. Or should i consult a doctor for this?.

Why was duoluton prescribed?.was there any irregularity before that month?

It act as a contraceptive pill for that month

If you are passing feshy bits it is better to have an ultrasound done to rule out abortion..if is cleared now you may not be able to detect it now.

The problems are not because of the tablets you have taken

I would like to know if I had sex on October 23rd, then had a period on October 28th can I be pregnant from that October the 23rd date? Then again on November 7th and 12th I had sex.My next question is I went in for an ultrasound on January 27th and the ultrasound screen said I was 12w5 days. Does that mean 12w 5 days from my last period or from the date I concieved? How does the ultrasound determine gestational age if it doesn't know the exact day of my period? Does the machine do calculations based on the average size of babies? Please help..I'm confused!!

The usg machines calculate the dates by the size of the babies-the length of the babies in the first three months which is called CRL-crown rump length.the gestational age of the fetus is calculated from LMP,that is 2 weeks prior to conception.if your periods are very regular and you are sure of ypur LMP,then your history will be given more credit than the usg.if you have irregular periods or if you are not sure of your dates then the machine will be given more credit.the calculation by the machine is plus or minus one week in the first trimester and plus or minus two weeks in the second trimester

Hello. I'd appreciate any kind of advice on my issue. I've been bleeding usually after sex but sometimes for no apparent reason. I'm on seasonique and have been for 2yrs now and have never had this problem. I've been tested for stds/hiv and everything came back clean (this was a month ago). I asked the gyn and she said finish this pack and if its still a problem I might have to change birth control. Why would this be happening out of the blue though? Its freaking me out. I also took a pregnancy test. Negative.
 

I don’t know the commercial name seasonique-probably a contraceptive pill.

With any hormonal pill breakthrough bleeding can happen.you may have to switch on to a higher dose. Your cervix has to examined for any polyp and a pap smear and cervix biopsy have to be if necessary

I was an IVF patient and am now 25 weeks pregnant with twins.  I have PCOS (just as an aside as this can affect blood sugar relating to my question)My OB told me that IVF twins have a higher rate of preterm labour and she suggested to me that I take 2 injections 12mg each, 48 hours apart of betamethasone to help with preterm labour and if it does occur it can help with infant respiration and bleeding into the brain.  I know this is not an "infertility" question, however your knowledge has always been right on the mark in questions I've asked before and would really love your opinion on it.  I do not have Diabetes, gestational or otherwise and blood sugar is not an issue and the pcos is mild.  I am not overweight and have gained thus far in the 25 weeks of pregnancy about 25-30 pounds. 

Thanks for your time!
 

Any twins can go into preterm labour.there is no point in giving betamethasone at random because the effects last for only a week.we cannot give weekly doses of betamethasone.as it will produce lots of side effects .so we normally give when there is a threatened preterm labour in the form of pain.or when we plan to deliver prematurely due to some reason.the drug may start taking effect in 24 hours time, till when we try and post pone labour if possible

I have a small bump under my arm after I shaved my armpit. After 1-2 days I had a sharp pain in my breast. The pain in the breast comes and goes throughout the day. The pain is worse at night and less painful during the day. The bump under my arm was gone after 2-3 days.

It has been 2 weeks now. I don't feel any lump in breast. Had an Ultrasound and nothing showed up. Have a little pain in the nipple.I don't have any rash.My breast not swallen.

Do you know what might be the problem? do you think this can be inflamatory breast cancer?

I am 18 and quiet a sporty person and a period for me is just a waste of time, and a pain that I don't need,as i NEVER want to or will get pregnant. I tend to get mine irregularly which I believe is due to being very active at some times. But I wish these times when I don't have my period(so far lasting between months and around a year) would last forever, I find them great, though I know this isn't really a good sign, and isn't healthy. But I always eventually get my period back when I aren't doing as much exercise.

I am fully set on adopting no matter what; I believe there are too many people in need of help in the world, and far too many people in the world anyway, and i'm sure i NEVER want to be pregnant.

So, all I want to know is, is there a safe way to never get your period if you are 1OO% sure that you NEVER want to be pregnant?
 

You can take low dose oral contraceptive pills not for the purpose of avoiding pregnancy but to get periods as you want.they can be taken for 3 months continuosly and stop.you will bleed for a day or two and restart the pills for 3 months .this way you will get periods 4 times in year and just two days each time with not much pain.but it cannot be taken unsupervised,you have to be monitored by a doctor every three months.for a person who is active this does not cause any problem.if you want to become pregnant anytime after your marriage due to change of circumstances you can .never take decisions without thinking of the future.things will always change.mind and opinion change with time ,age and circumstances

I had sex about six weeks ago before putting nuva ring back in and am now kind of getting symptoms. I have a 11 month old baby. I just put a new nuva ring back in on wed. I am planning on taking a preg test tomarrow morn. If I am pregnant cab it do a lot of damage in just a few days?
 

Nuva ring should be put only after making sure that you are not pregnant (soon after periods)kindly specify the dates instead if saying Wednesday because I wont know which wed you mean.if you are pregnant and do not want it ,abortions can be done by pills if is less than 7 weeks and surgically if it is more than 7 weeks

hello I'm 27. i had a (medical pill)abortion 8weeks on January 20,2012 stopped bleeding on the 27. Resumed light spotting on Feb 5 through 11 but when i would wipe it was stretchy like when your ovulating but mixed with blood(spotting comes and goes that week), and been having unprotected sex ever since the 5 of Feb since its been almost 3weeks. is there a high possibility of pregnancy and i did not feel that ive ovulated. I'm very confused here. Can you please clarify my questions.at this point can you feel if you ovulated.How long should i wait for the a regular period to come after the abortion? and what probability is here for another pregnancy. thank you for your time....i really want this baby if i am.
 

You should have an ultrasound scan done to know whether the abortion is complete.

There is a 10% chance for incomplete abortion in medical abortion.even if you have small bits remaining inside you will have irregular ,unpredictable bleeding in which case you should udergo a surgical abortion.after an abortion regular periods will resume in a months time if you had regular periods before.some people do conceive immediately and you should use contraception.if you have become pregnant again and want to continue you can.if there is failure of the previous pregnancy to abort and if that continues you should have a surgical abortion

Hi,
I have been having excrucuating rectal pain during my period for about two years now. It goes away after a couple of days but it's almost impossible to sit, have a BM, or even pee without a lot of pain.
Could this be endometriosis.
 

As you rightly suggested it could be endometriosis

 Hello Dr,

I am31 yrs of age married for the last  18 months now. I am on eltraoxin but my TSH levels are normal. I also have Pcod but get my periods almost regularly. for the past 2 months my cycle has changed to 35 days.

Today is my 14th day, on the 7th day i statred the follicular study. The size of follicle was 4 to 6mm (multilpe/both ovaries) but since then there is no growth. I would want o know what are the changes of ovulation and the the growth of follicle and my chances of pregnancy.

If your periods are delayed follicles might start growing late even after 14 th day.you have to follow till day 20.

If follicles develop the chances for pregnancy in that particular cycle is 20 %.if no follicle is growing this month,there are no chances of pregnancy this month.

duphaston has to be taken only after confirmation of ovulation if you are trying for pregnancy.if you are taking it to regularize irregular periods you take from 16 th day for 10 days.nothing will happen by the mistake you have done .the periods might be slightly

prolonged .

Dear Mam,i am 35 years old and have a girl child of 3 and half years now i am pregnant for 3 months ,but i had missed abortion 5 months back ( on dating scan there was no feotal pole and was evacuated at 2 months) now again i am pregnant for 3 months and on testing of cardolipin antibody IgG is 10.61 GPL and IgM is 12.7 MPL and IgA is 14.2 ARB and doctor has advised me to start LMWH (cutenox injection ) every day till the date of delivery.

Dear madam kindly suggest me whether i have to compulsorily go for this treatment till delivery and what are the drawbacks with this treatment to me and to my baby  till now i had only one missed abortion, and tiffa I at 12 weeks is normal,can i continue the pregnancy without this treatment and what are the consequences.

kindly advise me.

 With one missed abortion you need not undergo all these tests.you have given the values,but they can vary from lab to lab.are these values more than the reference values of you lab.even then I don’t think it is necessary to take the above injection .we normally prescribe it only for people with more than 3 abortions and if these values are high.if your 12 weeks scan is normal you can definitely continue the pregnancy

Hello,

For a person with a recently discovered frontal lobe epilepsy (under medication°, is there a chance of occurence ofinfertilify issues ? The person concerned is 31 currently child-less , otherwise having a menopausal cycle which is regular like clockwork. A healthy individual but for hypothyrodism ( under medication ) .

Thanks  :) ,

 

 The frontal  lobe epilepsy or the medications may not cause infertility.but you should confirm with your doctor whether she can become pregnant and will she be able to take care of the baby.some medications cause abnormalities in the babies .so they will change the medications if the person is planning for pregnancy.it is not menopausal cycle but it is menstrual cycle.menopause means stoppage of menstruation once for all.hypothyroidism should again be corrected before attempting pregnancy

hi doctor, im a mother of 2 kids aged 8&hlf and 5&hlf after the second child my gynec suggested me to take lottee tablets for family planning which i continued for 3 yrs i have stopped them last yr coz many people told me that continuous use of these tab can cause hormonal problems and besides i was putting on loads of weight. and the other problem which i thought was associated was my periods are regular and on time but i dnt get the flow which i used to get earlier. i get flow only for 1 day  that 2 on 2nd day and thats it but there ar some occassional stains till 6th day is it normal? im really worried coz sum say that im putting on weight coz of this pl help. eagerly waithing for ur reply.

 Putting on weight may be because of contraceptive pills.it could also because of overeating,consuming high calorie foods and lack of exercise.it is common to have less bleeding during the usage of contraceptive pills.the pills do not cause hormonal problems.they may in fact correct it .the person taking pills should go for check up of weight ,BP, and breasts every 3 months.if there increase in weight unusually or increase in BP,or any swelling felt in the breasts the pills should be stopped.

 Why didn’t you ask the doctor who prescribed these medications?

Whenever you take a prescription you should inform your doctor that you are pregnant and if you are allergic to any medication.whatever you have taken is okay for this period of pregnancy.nimulid has been banned at present for pediatric use

Hi I am 35-years-old with a 5-year-old daughter. I have few questioins as we are planning to have a second baby. Firstly is it ok to have a second baby at this age. Will i conceive without any problems. My LMP was on 29th june 2011, we tried during the ovulation period, i.e., from 10th -14th of this month. My cycle is 28 days. I was pretty sure of getting pregnant as we tried during the right time (ovulation) but now am little worried cos since this morning, i have a feeling that i would get my periods, cos of cramping and also little discomfort. Is this normal...i know its not but i am scared to accept it. I would be really disappointed if i dont conceive now. I would turn 36 by May 2012 and i wanted to deliver the baby before that and was planning according to this cos i heard tht there would be lot of problems after 36. Is this true? kindly help and suggest me something on this. Thank you.

 

 It is okay to have baby at this time .aishwarya has delivered at 38 yrs.if you  have no medical or menstrual problems you should be able to conceive .there is no way of predicting whether you will conceive this month.it is not as if the moment you turn 36 the problems pour in.the chances for  complications increase by about 3 to 5 % .the chances for having a normal baby will be about 95 %.keep trying and goodluck

I'm planning for my second baby. In my first pregnancy i suffered with hyper tension. Still now i take medicines for my BP. Is this affect for my second pregnancy? I have already taken the tests ECG,Echo, urine and fundus examination, the results are normal.I'm 29yr old. My daughter's age is 3yrs 8months.

A person with hypertension becoming pregnant comes under high risk category.

Because of the BP and the tablets taken for it the baby may be growth retarded.(physical growth).you and your baby will need close monitoring.frequent visits,repeated scans and blood tests may be needed.iam not saying this to discourage you,but to be more careful.

please tell me five best options to prevent pregnancy.

Oral pills,vaginal rings,and copper t are good options.

Condoms are good , but have a high failure rate of about 10 to 15 %

Injections have least failure rate.the periods may . be irregular initially-you may have spotting even every day.after 6 months you may not get periods at all as long as you use –even for 1 or
2 years.it may take more than a year for periods to get regularized.there may weight gain.so we usually advise this for people in the post delivery period if they are thin ,underweight people.

Im hv taken med. Sysfol & Cadifast. After 1 month only she told me to go for HSG which I thought is too early just after a month's treatment.  Please help wat should i do & can you suggest some gynae. in delhi (Spl. janak puri or vikaspuri)

Even if evrerything is normal,it may take 6 months to one year for you to conceive.it is better not to get worried ,no need for any investigations right now.if your periods are regular,and if you have regular contact just wait for a few months.continue folic acid I don’t know anybody in delhi.

Hi Doctor,

I have read somewhere in magzine tht if ur planning for a child and u want a baby boy than do the intercourse on even days after ur periods,is it true and one thing more i want to know tht after c-serian its possible to have a delivery normally or not.

Waiting for ur reply mam

Shweta

There is no way you can be sure of having predetermination of sex of the baby.

Possible to have normal delivery after c-section.but it is much riskier than going for an elective c=section ,and trying for a normal delivey after a previous normal delivery

Dear Dr,

My name is Aparna living in Kuwait.  My second child is 11 months old.  Normally  I get my periods in 30-40 days.  I got my last periods on 5/3/2011.  Since I still did not get my periods I went in for a pregnancy test with the kit and found that I am pregnant.  We were using condom.  We do not want the 3rd child and would like to go in for abortion.  It is illegal to abort here, so I have to come to India for the procedure.  Upto when can I go in for abortion (please give me a tentative date) as I have to plan for my trip.  What would be the method by which the abortion would be done and can I also go in for sterilisation together as we do not want anymore pregnancies.

Abortions can be done with tablets upto 7 weeks.after that it will be done by suction evacuvation till 12 weeks .after 12 weeks it is called second trimester abortion,which is more difficult than the first trimester abortions we discussed.the first trimester abortions needs only few hours of hospital stay.the second trimester abortions will need one or two days stay.both first and second trimester abortions can be followed by family planning operation.

  i am marriedfor last 3 years and now we are planning to have a baby  but but as we started without precautions its not at all successful from past 3 months  and even my periods also have become irregular from past 3 months so what should i do for it   and i am tensed what to do  please give me the suggeations.

1:  if we have irregular periods then is there a chance of getting pregnent or not ?

2:

You can safely wait till 1 year to become pregnant.the chances for conception in a menstrual cycle is only 20 %.as cumulative effect nearly 70 % of the people conceive at the end of one year,another 10 % by the end of 2 years.20% people may have some difficulty in
conceiving.even if you have irregular periods ,if all the other parameters are okay it is possible to conceive.there may be a delay.

 dear mam,

                       i gavr birth to 2nd baby recently,he was born in 36 weeks itself.i planned for doing family planning,but since i delivered in 36 weeks my doctor told she cant do it now lets see after 6 months,pls explain me abt it detailly.when can i do family planning-is operation best or laproscopy best.both of my delivery is c-sec only.one more kind request-i know after 3 months of delivery we can have sexual contact but which remedy is best to take to avoid pregnancy because during my 1st delivery that doctor gave 1 injection to put on every 3 months interval to avoid conceive,but even after 2 yrs i didnt get periods,so when we went to another doctor she told dont use such injections stop it,so we used condoms  but i conceived without getting periods,then i did abortion,after treatment i got menses & i putted cu-t.so pls suggest a good way to avoid pregnancy now,still  i didnt get periods.my 2nd baby born on feb-16,2011, thanking u. 

we want to make sure that the second baby is hale and healthy before going for a permanent procedure like sterilization operation.doing family planning is easy.in case you want to
undergo the reversal which is called recanalisation,it is difficult ,and does not guarantee 100% success.hence we always post pone family planning operation till we know that the baby is alright.the injection you are talking about is okay if you are on the thinner side.the main side effects of the injections are increase in weight gain,delay in getting regulaisation of periods.You can take progestogen only pills if you are feeding,if not take regular OC pills.if you are person who is forgetful,the you can go for once month vaginal rings.you have to discuss with your doctor .get physical examination done and then choose.if copper t did not give any problem before you can try that,because in copper t if it suits,you can forget it for 3 to 5 years.condoms are safe but has high failure rates.

 Dear Dr., My name is Manjusha and  I am 22yrs old.I had undergone Operative Laproscopy for Chocolate Cyst on 2011-03-03. After recovery

Medroxyprogesterone Acetate (10 mg)  Tablet was started on 2011-03-13 night and ended on 2011-03-17 morning(Total 8 tabs) for getting periods.
My menstrual due date was 2011-03-16. Till now there is no sign of periods.Pregnancy test was negative on 2011-04-05.I am getting worried about this happening. What could be the possible reasons?

Periods can be delayed due hormonal imbalance.it could also be due to the endometrium,that is the tissue inside the uterus is not being adequate enough.it is nothing to worry even if it is delayed by a month

Hello, I am 34 weeks pregnant and this is my first time.i want normal delivery so please suggest me some tips for that.

First foremost you should not overeat.total weight gain during pregnancy should not be more than 10 kgs,if you are normal weight before pregnancy.if you had been overweight already 5 to 7 kg weight gain is sufficient.you should do regular exercises.your baby position should be normal,your water levels around the baby shouldbe normal.you should be able to put up with the labour pain or prepared take up epidural.it is not a single factor,but so many things are involved .all the best.finally never worry about the route of delivery.the mother and baby should be okay at the end of delivery.

It is difficult to answer such questions because you need to be examined in person.There should be no pain now due to c-section.kindly contact your doctor in person.

My first pregnancy was miscarried in 13 weeks. In second pregnancy, doctors said that i have very short cervix and need to do a cerclage. It was done in 11th week and again while doing USG in 20th week cervix was found open so cerclage was done for the second time. But even after this, at 21st week all waters came out and pain was induced and baby delivered pre-maturedly and dead.

Now i am advised to avoid preganacy for next 1 year. Is there any treatment for this ? Please help me out in this. I am very confused.

It is unfortunate of course.but short cervix will be a problem agin in the next pregnancy.after cerclge,take complete bedrest and medicines to prevent preterm labor

Conception happens within 1 hour of intercourse around the ovulation time.cycling willnot disturb conception.it is good to reduce weight before you conceive and reach an BMI BELOW 25

Hello Dr,

I am 26 yrs old, and was detected with Thyroid problem 2 yrs back. My TSH levels had gone up to 12(initially when it was detected it was 5.6). I was taking homeopathy for sometime, and later I had to take registrone tablets for delaying my cycles. After that, my TSH levels shot up to 15. Now, I am taking Electroxin regularly. But still, my cycles are not normal. I have to take registron tablets, then only they are normal. If I stop the tablets, my cycle goes irruegular again(Last cycle date was in november). I am married for 4 years now, and have a 3 yr old girl born in 2008. Please advise what should I do. Should I be going for homeopathy?  

If your thyroid problem is corrected and you are taking tabltes regularly,there should be other reasons for irregular periods.you can take regesterone tablets to get your bleeding.

Iam not competent enough to comment about homeopathy as I do not know about it

Madam, I had a abortion recently, they said the baby is not of 6 weeks growth and internal bleeding it there and we opted for abortion, they gave tablets and I had mensus after that for seven days and again I had a scan to see it is completely clean, in that scan they said some tissues are still there and it is 7mm and asked to take scan in a week again. please advice me.

In the repeat scan if there are bits remaining ,you will have to under go what is called as dilatation and curettage to clean the uterus.if bit are remaining and if you don’t remove them ,they might get infected and cause future fertility problems

 Hello Dr.,

I read online that Duphaston is banned in USA during pregnancy. I'd a thread of bleeding - brownish in colour - just once during my 6th week when I passed urine. After this, my gynaec prescribed Duphaston thrice daily till the end of first trimester. I'm worried about its side effects on me and my baby and would appreciated your advice.Thanks.

As for as I know it is not banned in USA.it is a drug which has been in use for more than 20 years and it has not produced any side effects.it is safe during pregnancy

 . Hi

My cousin was diagnosed about 6 months ago as having ovarian cysts (polycystic). Her doctor suggests that there is no need to remove these cysts as they are polycystic but the pain is very severe during periods and a pain killer has become a must during this duration and even one tablet of Meftalspas is not sufficient to reduce the pain.

polycystic ovaries are not  a cause for mensrual pain.if one tablet doesnt work try another.look for other causes of pain

 Hi,

 My ultra sound reports showed that I have 12 AFM level of amniotic fluid. I am in my 20th week of pregnancy.My doctor suggested that it is low level and should go on a complete bed rest.But from the web search I got a feeling that my levels aren't so low.

I am not interested in going for a bed rest.Can anyone suggest.Is this actually low level? what level is expected for a 20-21 week pregnant?what are the measures to be taken to improve amniotic fluid level?

normal level of amniotic fluid is 8 to 20 cm.yours is in the normal range.normally we give quantitative measurements only after 28 weeks .at 2o weeks it is only a subjective assessment.no need for bed rest.normal food and adequate fluids and normal routine acivity can be done

 Hi mam,

I have missed my period.And i have done the testing at home . I think i am pregnant. So is there any other way from abortion. I heard there is a medicine named CLEAR. Is it true and safe.

 Hi mam,

What are the possible causes of missed abortion ? How it can be prevented?

 it is difficult to pin point a cause.most of the time the fetus which was formed might have been chromosomally abnormal,which again is like an accident .it can happen to anyone.

increase in blood sugar,thyroid certain blood disorders can cause them

even if you had three abortions the chances for conceiving and having a normal baby is about 70%.

if everything is normal you really dont have to worry

you dont have to keep doing the same tests again ,if your is more than 30,go for IUI,and laparoscopy

 hi

i am 30 yr old....expecting my 2nd child in jan 2011. I have boy through C-section 4yrs ago. In 2nd month i had bleeding for a few minutes and then stopped. I take proluten injection every week. Is second delivery possible for a normal delivery.

it depends on for what purpose the c - section was done ,and how the things are now;there are additional risks for person tryng for a normal delivery after previous c -section.possible if all things are favorable and you get into labour spontaneosly and prepared to take the risks involved.

DUring the time of delivery , i had a severa pain in my anal hole.

Later , after 2 years of pregnancy, still iam having that pain. WHen i work for many hours standing in kitchen , i get this pain. I see a small flesh coming out of anal hole. But when i do an exercise of contracting and expanding my anal hole for sometime, this flesh goes inside and it relieves the pain.

Could you tell me what is the reason for this and how can i overcome this. Is this due to any fault in my delivery.

Also i have a habit of drinking lot of water while at work.I work as an IT professional.

it could be anal fissure with a centinal pile mass.kindly consult your doctor and get appropriate treatment.it is not due to any fault in delivery.anybody can get it.

Hi,

If the endometrial thickness stops growing after my 12 th day, what will happen then, will the option to get pregnant will be very less?Is this all deals with my diet ?

if the patency of the right tube is confirmed by HSG or laparoscopy,the chances for conceiving are very good provded there are no other problems.

 Hello doctor.. I've got copper T inserted after 4 months of my delivery. That was in the last week of April. I delivered in the month of December last year. I've had spotting since then and it is still continuing. Not only spotting but my periods is also very irregular. Sometimes it comes right after 28 days, otherwise there is just 15 days gap between my periods. Also before there is spotting i get lower abdomen pain which is similar to the pain when there is regular periods.. (Cramps like pain). The white discharge also has increased eversince the copper T was inserted. But there is no foul smell during the white discharge. Would this spotting continue, doctor?? Is this condition normal or should I get it checked with my gynaec? After every period I do check the status of the Copper T by feeling the thread. I can feel it.

The copper T can produce all the symptoms you have mentioned.If it is getting problem you have to get it out.
