    How can I regularise my periods?


    Q. I am a 27-year-old married woman weighing 64 kg and 152 cm tall. I am suffering from irregular periods since puberty. The periods sometimes occur after 40 days or only after medication. Whenever I get periods after medication, they are quite heavy and last for more than five days. This particular problem is suggested to be the cause of no ovulation. We have tried to support ovulation and get IUI done. After two failed IUIs, we came to know that my fallopian tubes are blocked. The block was removed with the help of laparoscopy five months back. How do I get rid of irregular periods? What is the treatment for my ovulation problem?


    A. You possibly have polycystic ovaries, and it is expected to have irregular and delayed periods. You will need ovulation induction to help you conceive faster. You are overweight, so it is advisable that you lose weight.

    Is Theo-Asthalin safe for children?


    Q. I have a 3 years old son. He often gets cold and cough during which he falls short of breadth. The doctor has prescribed 5 ml of Theo-Asthalin. I want to know how safe is it for children?

    A. Your child appears to be suffering from recurrent episodes of wheezing, which could also be due to asthma or other causes like viral infections. Theo-Asthalin is safe for short or mid term use. However, if prolonged usage of drugs is required, then inhaled drugs have lesser side effects.

    Why are my son's eyes swollen?


    Q. I have a 6 months old son. His eyes appear to be swollen. Could you tell me why this is happening? Is it something serious? And what should I do to remove this swelling?

    A. You need to give more details on the intensity of the problem. Is it a swelling in the eyes in particular or the surrounding area? Is there any associated eye discharge? Is it more during the morning time and then settles over the day? Is he urinating properly? If he is otherwise well, then you don't have to worry about this. Many babies have swollen eyes. You can get a routine examination of his urine. See if he has any of the above mentioned symptoms and then check with a paediatrician.

    Are Amalgam fillings bad for teeth?


    Q. I am a 28 years old male from Iran. Recently, I underwent a root canal treatment for my tooth with Amalgam (containing mercury). Someone has told me that Amalgam is bad for health. Kindly suggest whether I should remove it and go for another filling. If yes, than which material?

    A. After root canal treatment you should get crowns placed on the teeth. This prevents them from fracturing. If you want to get the Amalgam fillings changed then composite fillings are a good option

    Why is my daughter shy and poor in studies?


    Q. I am 39 years old, father of two daughters - 10 years and 8 years old. My younger daughter is very calm and shy by nature. She does not come forward to talk and never reads aloud. She is also very slow in writing and shows interest in drawing sketches and colours. I am worried about her studies and poor performance. Kindly give your valuable guidance.

    A. Why is there so much stress on school performance? Your second daughter is 8 years old. Treat her gently and let her draw pictures and do her art work. If she is quiet by temperament, why not respect that and treat her, as she would like? She will gradually develop self-confidence, if she is not compared to her sister or others and is allowed to grow.

    What is the best treatment for piles?


    Q. What is best treatment for 3rd/4th degree piles?

    A. The best way is to treat this is according to the symptoms. If there are no symptoms, it does not have to be treated. If it needs to be treated, you may need surgery, which is probably best done by PPH or better known as stapling haemorrhoidectomy.

    Does my child have a speech problem?


    Q. My four-year-old daughter says "la" for "ra", e.g. she says "laat" for "raat". She is not able to pronounce the words where only half pronunciation is needed such as "slave" becomes "save", "story" becomes either "sory" or "tory" and "glass" becomes "gass". If she is saying a longer sentence, she mixes words. She is not able to say even nursery rhymes clearly. I am really worried for her. But her school teacher finds her speech okay. Another major problem is that it has been more than a year that she is going to school, but still she is not able to recognise numbers and letters. She can copy and trace any given letter and number, but she recognises only a couple of them. If I repeat a letter 100 times, she repeats after me, but the 101st time if I ask her what the number was, she cannot answer. She does the same with her teacher at school. Also, she is a very stubborn child. We speak in Hindi at home, but these days I am trying to use English with her, as I feel that it is very important. But she is not too happy with English, though sometimes she herself takes initiative and utters a few words in her broken English. I find her clearer when she speaks Hindi; her English words actually go for a toss. Otherwise, she is an extremely beautiful, adorable and playful child. She loves to talk, colour and play outdoors. She is a wonderful dancer and a very good runner. Does she have a learning or speech disorder?

    A. Your child needs some help from a specialist, like a speech therapist, but it's not serious. Gradually, she will get over the pronunciation problems. It is not fair to describe her as stubborn. Perhaps you do not have enough patience. Get her toys and play material that she can handle.

    Perhaps she does not understand what you expect of her. If her teacher finds her okay, you should be glad. I think you should be more relaxed when you play with her and not always do something for her knowing letters and numbers.

    Why do I have to pass stools soon after breakfast?


    Q.
    I am 23 years old. For the past two years, my digestive system is giving me problems. I am having motion problem only in the mornings. If I have my breakfast, I pass stools within 10 minutes. This happens only when I take breakfast. I don't know why this is happening only in the morning. I am fine the rest of the day.

    A. You appear to have a prominent gastro-colic reflex. I suggest you cut down milk intake in the morning (you may have lactose intolerance). If the symptoms persist, take isabgol husk (one tablespoonful in morning with water).
