Brief Answer: DETAILS ARE GIVEN BELOW. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for writing to us. According to your given information, 2 times period in a month may be due to hormonal imbalance, mental stress or emotional upset, withdrawal effect of the pill, over weight, abnormal thickening of uterine lining, pelvic infection, polyp or fibroid etc. Here, I suggest you to undergo some investigations like Trans Vaginal Ultrasound scan (TVS), D21-progesterone assay, blood for Hb%, Complete blood count etc. These are quite necessary to pinpoint the diagnosis and make proper treatment. You can consult with your gynecologist for proper guidance and prescription. In the mean time, you can do the following things to get effective result: a) Take IRON, FOLIC ACID & Vitamin E supplements with your regular diet which is enriched with vegetables, animal protein and pulses. b) Do regular meditation or yoga for 15-30 min to avoid mental stress/ anxiety or depression. Maintain genital hygiene properly. c) Drink more water (2.5-3 lit/ day) or fruit juice to stay hydrated and better systemic circulation. d) Do regular mild to moderate exercise to control or reduce body weight and maintain overall fitness. Hope, I have answered your query. Let me know, if you need further clarification. Wish your good health and take care yourself.

I have been experiencing a strange rash on my upper body for almost a year. It seems to flare up with exercise or heat exposure and showering. But also in general it calms down at times but never goes away...it looks and feels awful. had blood work done but nothing popped up. Because of my Insurance I have been on a waiting list to see an Allergist. I have seen a Dermatologist ones and all he did was prescribe cortisone cream, which did not help. Also at night in bed my skin feels really hot and dry and uncomfortable. I am a 47 year old female, in great health and teach yoga and work as a massage therapist. I cut out Gluten a few month ago but that did not help ;-(
