Q: What are the most common ingredients in Tampon?

Most brand name widely available tampons contain, rayon, cotton and a polyester coating for the absorbent core.

The strings may be polyester or cotton and the applicator may be plastic or cardboard.

They may contain also fragrances and/ or odor neutralizers.

I missed my pill

Posted by on 2:32 pm in Blog | Comments Off on I missed my pill

Birth Control Questions answered…

I missed my pill….

Which Birth Control should I use?

 

  • What should I do if I miss a pill?– If you miss one pill, double up the next day. If you miss two pills, double up for the next two days. If you miss three pills, throw the pack away and use condoms; start a new pack on your next cycle.
  • I realized I missed a pill after having sex, do I need the morning after pill? – if you have been dutifully taking your pill around the same time every day and you do not miss pills often, you will not need to do anything aside from taking two pills the next day.
  • When should I start the pill/ Nuvaring/IUD?– For the pill: start on the first day of your period. If you start the Sunday after the first day of your

PELVIC FLOOR THERAPY FOR INCONTINENCE

 

What is biofeedback or pelvic floor therapy for urine incontinence?

 

Biofeedback takes information about something happening in the body and presents it in a way that you can see or hear and understand. Getting on a scale to check your weight or having your blood pressure taken are very simple examples of biofeedback, which can be used to measure any body response such as heart rate or muscle contraction and relaxation.

In biofeedback, the measurement can be displayed on a computer screen or heard as a tone and used to learn about a subtle body function.

 

Who needs Bio-feedback therapy?

  1. Urine leakage while coughing, sneezing, running or any other physical exertion.
  2. Pelvic muscle weakness after child birth.
  3. Frequent urge to run to the bathroom leading to urgency and leakage.
  4. Menopause related muscle weakness and lack of bladder control.
  5. Early stage bladder or

As featured in the Andrea Blair’s blog on monthlygift.com, Dr. Gupta talks about the G-spot.

From a medical perspective, “the G-Spot is a plexus (or a collection) of nerves and blood vessels in the mid and upper or anterior wall of the vagina,” says Adeeti Gupta MD, FACOG, Gynecologist and Sex Therapy expert.

A ‘plexus’ might not sound very sexy or exciting but a collection of nerves and blood vessels means sensitivity and increased sensitivity leads to opportunity for heightened arousal because this collection “provides blood flow to the vaginal and clitoral area in times of need like during orgasm, labor and after delivery,” adds Dr. Gupta.

According to Dr. Gupta, it’s a common misconception that you need to (or even can) reinforce or ‘enhance’ the G-Spot. “Even if you try to make it thicker with artificial injections, you cannot make it more sensitive to touch to help Read More »

Shifting focus in Women’s health. No More Obstetrics

Posted by on 12:56 pm in Blog | 3 comments

After having graduated from my first OBGYN residency in 1997, I dived into women’s health with passion.

Ever since my foray into medicine, I have taken care of thousands of women, guided them through their pregnancies, coached them during their deliveries and helped them navigate the post partum undulations. Staying up on countless nights seemed like a small price to pay for the precious moments I witnessed as a new life came flying (or not) into this world. The joyous cries of new parents combined with the howling of the newborn were all worthwhile. I never turned away any woman who needed me. High risk or not! I took on every challenge and went overboard to ensure the safest and healthiest outcome.

Since my graduation, I have worked in three countries. Having undergone various forms of training while traversing different institutions, I have thrived everywhere, flourishing with the affection emanating … Read More »
