Question: Hello doctor!
My friend is staying in a remote part of India. She is 6 months pregnant. She statrted having loose motions around 15:00hrs IST. It is 20:40 hrs now and she has gone about 4 to 5 times to the toilet.
She is complaining of excessive cramps and kicks on the lower part of the abdomen now. There is no doctor available in the vicinity right now so could you please advise us what can be done in this case.

Hi,
Thanks for the query.

Bowel movements due to loose motions might have stimulated premature uterine action and loss of water and electrolytes can affect the general condition of the mother, which can intern affect baby's condition.
So if medical shop is available in her village, let her take:
ORS power or any other rehydration solution in water.
Sporolac sachets in water to control motions.
Natural progesterone supplements like susten or naturogest etc to stop uterine action.

If medical shop is not available:
Let her take home remedies like soaked jeera water to control motions.
To maintain hydration let her drink a glass of water with one spoon of sugar and pinch of salt. She can repeat it every hourly for 4 hours, then two hours once.
Also she can take coconut water, butter milk etc.
Let her take rest in left lateral position as per as possible.
And consult nearby doctor as early as she can.

Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries. If you are satisfied with all my answer, please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.

Hi I m having problems with my scalp. It s been very flaky sore and the more I itch the more I loose hair. I ve been taking the POP progesterone only pill lately and I don t know if that it a cause of it. Also I wear weaves but have done nothing different to my normal routine! I haven t changed shampoos or hair oils. Also I went to the doctors and he gave me a shampoo beginning with D what was prescribed but it has made no difference. I have a busy lifestyle but still try to balance my eating and exercising. Any suggestions? J

To who it may concern, I appreciate your help a lot. I could not find the answer online, and I currently don t have a personal physician to ask. I am eighteen years old, and I plan to go back on my combined birth control oral contraceptive called ,Tri-Sprintec. I have a question that worries me a lot. If this birth control pills are triphasic, have three different phases, each week has a different amount of progesterone hormone, so if I throw up in one hour after taking a pill and it is most likely missed and take next one from the same phase, will it reduce the effectiveness of my birth controls because of taking,in this case, six instead of seven pills of that phase according to the whole cycle ?

I saw my physician on Thursday of last week. From Monday, my beta had only gone from 385 to 556, and my progesterone went down from 10.1 to 8.8. I have been having severe cramps but no bleeding. According to my calculations/ovulation I should be no less than 5 weeks 5 days right now, but the transvaginal u/s they did on Thursday put me at 4 weeks 3 days...we re 5-7 days off. He made me cancel a road trip, because he didn t want me on the road when things went south . Does anyone have any experience with this? I miscarried with a blighted ovum around 9 months ago, and am concerned it s happening again.
