Hi Dr Frank, So, I have an app to track my period date. However, sometimes I forget to add the date, and hence, I try and remember it. Here's how I understand that my period is on the way- - I experience lower back pain and it's extremely pronounced just before my period. - My legs pain, and sometimes that's mild swelling as well if I stand for too long. - I have mild to moderate headache. - My mood swings are in full "swing" just before my period. - I feel too hot at times, and tend to sweat more than usual. - My cravings increase, and my appetite goes down. - There's loads of bloating, my stomach puffs up, so does my face, and yes, acidity is something that I usually face just before menstruation. - Skin becomes oily and I feel really tired and drained out a day before my period...anyone can make it out easily.

So I usually track my periods on my calender in my phone so that it is easier for me to check whenever required. Whenever I feel different moods of mine such as being sad at everything,getting irritated etc ik that my periods are around the corner.

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.

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.

Hi, so my friend who saw blood yesterday but the periods didn't came. she at first thought it's her periods because she is about to have periods. is this a concern? her last time was 20 days late and it was longer than usual as well. What should she be doing?
Anonymous-4d
Unexpected bleeding, especially when it doesn't coincide with the expected menstrual cycle, can be a sign of a more serious issue, such as: Uterine fibroids Endometriosis.
nanc-4d
The fact that her last period was 20 days late and longer than usual suggests an irregularity that should be addressed.

Have recently read a crazy post that masturbating a lot can cause acne for women,is this true? XD
No, masturbation does not cause acne. Masturbation can cause hormonal changes, if you indulge in it badly. These changes are only tangentially related to acne development. It's more likely that if you seem to have less acne when you don't masturbate, it's just a coincidence because of the many changes that happen during puberty and adolescence. Instead of thinking like this, think about doing masturbation in moderation and let the sexual tension release. This keep your hormones tickling and can help maintain hormonal balance.
Hi! Hope you are doing well. As a therapist and intimacy coach, I can tell you that that’s absolutely false! Masturbation does not cause acne, that’s a myth. masturbation is actually beneficial as it helps improve sleep and reduce stress!

Is oral sex possible during periods?? My boyfriend wants to try it out
If you both are comfortable, then go for it! However, consider going for a dental dam as infection during menstruation is high! You can consider using a menstrual cup or a tampon to avoid leakage. Infact, for a lot of people, arousal during menstruation is high and period blood acts like a natural lubricant!
Anonymous9d
Just use oral dams for protection because the risk of developing infections is very high during menstruation 🩸

My mom never told me about tampons but I recently heard about it through my group of friends. I did not want to ask them because I didn’t want to feel backward. What are they?? Can women of all age use them ?
Yes, any women who is menstruating can use tampon. Only one should be cautious while using it. Unlike a pad, it is placed internally, inside of the vaginal canal. They are made of rayon, or a blend of rayon and cotton, along with synthetic fibers. Depending on your flow, it can be kept inside for 6-8 hrs. Once inserted correctly, a tampon is held in place by the vagina and expands as it soaks up menstrual blood. However, in addition to menstrual blood, the tampon also absorbs the vagina's natural lubrication and bacteria, which can change the normal pH, increasing the risk of infections. So always cautious about changing it time to time. You can use pad/tampon/menstrual cup as per your need. But while playing sports, during swimming it's better to use tampon/menstrual cup. Tampons also are easy to store in a purse or pocket. Another advantage to tampons is that they can't be felt because they're inside the body.

A tampon is a menstrual product designed to absorb blood and vaginal secretions by insertion into the vagina during menstruation. Unlike a pad, it is placed internally, inside of the vaginal canal. Once inserted correctly, a tampon is held in place by the vagina and expands as it soaks up menstrual blood. Any girl of any age can who is menstruating can use them, there’s no one age where it suddenly becomes ok to use them or it’s not ok to use them.

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_Dia11d
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?
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.
hina10d
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.
