#AskDocM Do you know when you are ovulating? A 34-year-old woman noticed bleeding and cramping for two days approximately two weeks before her periods. This has been happening consecutively for six months now. She notes spotting and cramping on one side. The bleeding stops on its own. She uses panty liner and doesn't require pads as the bleeding isn't much. Do you think she should consult a gynecologist? What could be reasons she is noticing spotting during her menstrual cycle?

Hi @docmfrank I hope you are well, Spotting can happen due to various reasons including - - Use of birth control pills - Ovulation - Pregnancy - Implantation bleeding - Uterine fibroids - Endometriosis - PID ( Pelvic inflammation disease) - Sexually transmitted disease - PCOS - Thyroid issues - Certain medications - Trauma caused to the reproductive organs such as that during "rough sex". - Stress - Uterine polyps , and even cancer. I think in her case, it could be ovulation, or something like PCOS, birth control, or Fibroids :) She should see a gynecologist once, and go through a Transvaginal scan to understand the reason behind it. Prevention is better than cure :)

What supplements are recommended for menopause?
You would generally need calcium and vitamin d supplements once you hit your 40s. As you grow older your calcium absorption decreases and it is very important to maintain certain calcium levels for your bone and muscle strength. Vitamin d is needed for better absorption of calcium as well as for good mood regulation. Apart from that most other supplements get prescribed based on deficiency.
Menopause means stopping of female hormones, especially Estrogen. Because it is necessary for your vagina as well as your overall health, you can take so many natural Medicines instead of taking just supplements. You may face vaginal dryness, mood swings/ emotional ups and downs and osteoporosis. Also hot flushes irritates most. Just supplements are not sufficient if these symptoms are irritating you. Then Take proper consultation with your doctor. Natural medicines are more useful in my opinion.

my periods are not regular after my delivery
Hi there, I hope you are well. -Not getting your period after delivery until a year is considered to be normal. - You can expect it to begin soon. - Hence, you needn't worry ,and take good care of yourself during this phase. - Avoid getting stressed, rather take time to do meditation and yoga as and when possible. - Eat a well balanced diet including fibre, good fats, as well as protein. - Drink enough water. - And add some movement to your daily routine. You can simply opt for a walk . Take care ✨

My periods are delayed by 8days and i checked i am pregnant but i dont want this baby so can anyone help me with MTP abortion details how much days it take to abort the baby?
Go to Govt authorised abortion centre and consult gynec. They will guide you about the process. Defending on age of fetus doctor can give tablets after confirmation of pregnancy using ultrasound scan. Once it is confirmed that your pregnancy is uterine pregnancy, doctor can take decision easily. If anyone have ectopic pregnancy that is Pregnancy in tubes, doctor need to do laproscopy to abort this pregnancy. So ultrasound scan is a must now a days. Kindly do consult a gynec for further management.

Are there any dietary supplements you recommend to support my menstrual health based on my individual needs?
Hey there! 🌸 Looking to boost your menstrual health? Consider adding these essentials to your routine: Iron for replenishing lost blood, Vitamin B6 to ease those pesky PMS symptoms, Magnesium for calming those cramps, Omega-3 fatty acids to soothe inflammation, and don't forget Calcium for bone health and mood stability. Your body will thank you for the extra support!
hina16d
There is no restriction for your diet during your menstrual cycle. Nor are there any foods that you necessarily should eat, except for foods high in iron. Because of the blood loss, there is also some iron loss w/menstruation. Therefore, foods high in iron content can help replace the iron stores that women need. These foods can include dark chocolate in small amounts, molasses, and then green leafy veggies such as spinach, beef, turkey, etc. You can google for a more comprehensive list. Otherwise, no special diet is required.

How can nutrition play a role in addressing common women’s health concerns such as menstrual irregularities, PMS symptoms, or menopausal transitions?
Regulating menstrual cycles with iron-rich foods. Easing PMS symptoms through magnesium and vitamin B6.Managing menopausal symptoms with phytoestrogen-rich foods like soy.
Na_Dia17d
For menstrual irregularities and PMS symptoms, maintaining stable blood sugar levels by eating balanced meals with complex carbohydrates, healthy fats, and lean proteins can help alleviate symptoms. Incorporating foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids, magnesium, and vitamin B6 may also be beneficial. During menopause, consuming foods rich in calcium and vitamin D helps maintain bone health. Phytoestrogen-rich foods like soy products can help alleviate hot flashes and other symptoms. Adequate intake of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains provides essential nutrients and supports overall health during this transitional phase. Additionally, staying hydrated and reducing caffeine and alcohol intake can help manage symptoms.

I am getting rashes from pads. What can I do to stop them?
docmfrank15d
If you have noticed rashes with one pad brand, it maybe helpful to try another. Another reason could also be using the pad for extended periods of time, which makes you more prone to rashes. Alternatives can include period panties or cloth pads which can help prevent rashes and are also eco-friendly as they are reusable. During your periods opt for loose cotton underwear and change it twice a day to limit sweat and rashes. If this doesn't subside with these simple changes, check in with a doctor to understand a possible underlying cause.
hina16d
Keep the affected area clean and dry, you can also apply a soothing cream or ointment that you can purchase over the counter. Ensure you're changing pads frequently to help prevent sanitary pad rash.

I track using the Flo app. My favourite part is adding the symptoms I experience on different days to be able to closer analyse how my cycles run each month.
I usually track my period using a calendar

My boyfriend wants to have sex with me but I am on my periods. Can we do it??
In ancient times, it was said that a couple should not have sex during periods when woman is on her period. But From a modern medical point of view, sexual intercourse during menstruation is normal and not perversion. But it can be associated, although remotely, with undesirable pregnancy, the development of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and possible endometriosis. To avoid pregnancy/infection one can use condom while doing it. But regularly indulging in period sex can be cause of retrograde menstruation and it can carry fresh pieces of endometrium which can get implantated outside uterus like on ovaries, uterine ligaments or even rectum. This is endometriosis. So take this into consideration.
Yes you can absolutely do it! Infact, periods can make sex more pleasureable too as period blood is a natural lubricant! Just make sure you are being safe: using protection if you are not planning a pregnancy and to remain safe from STIs as well. Proper communication and consent are important!
