How is follicular study done

When a Gynaecologist is investigating a female patient for infertility, Follicular study is one of the first line investigations that are prescribed.

Female fertility cycle is very unique .A normal fertile woman menstruates  once in a month.

If a diabetic patient’s blood is donated to another patient, Will he too become a diabetic patient?

Hi, the recipient will not become Diabetic, however there are certain WHO ( World Health Organisation ) guidelines that need to be followed before a Diabetic patient is accepted as a blood donor. They are as follows

5.5.1 Diabetes mellitus
Consideration should be given to the donor’s general state of health and ability
to tolerate a blood donation, as well as the possibility of intercurrent infection
that may affect the safety of the blood.

There are no reports suggesting increased adverse donor reactions in diabetic
donors. A systematic literature review found no studies investigating diabetes
as a possible risk factor for adverse reactions in voluntary blood donors; two
studies on pre-operative autologous donation and three experimental studies
found that blood donation was well tolerated (73).

Individuals with diabetes who require insulin should be permanently deferred from
blood donation (70) because of concerns regarding diabetes-related complications
and an increased risk of hepatitis and other infections if safe injection practices
cannot be assured.

Recommendations
Accept
 Individuals with diabetes mellitus well-controlled by diet or oral hypoglycaemic
medication, provided they have no history of orthostatic hypotension and no
evidence of infection, neuropathy or vascular disease, in particular peripheral
ulceration
Defer permanently
 Individuals with:
— Diabetes who require insulin
— Complications of diabetes with multi-organ involvement

I ate Chinese food which contained msg. Soon after that I got rashes all over my body and the itching was uncontrollable. I read in a website that msg damages the brain of baby. I am terrified and worried. Please help me. Then I realised that I haven’t taken my folic acid tablets regularly, before I got pregnant. My doctor had told me take it regularly before 5 months of pregnancy, but I was very irregular. I forgot to it for month or two. But, when I got to know that I was pregnant, that is in 6 weeks, I have never missed to take it. I read that folic acid helps in baby’s brain development, so I am worried that, whether my irregular eating of folic acid tablets will affect my baby’s brain and intelligence? Thinking all these things is making me anxious and I am getting panic attacks, sweating and high heart beat are the symptoms. Please help to overcome this problem. I am going through a rough phase.

Hi,
As regards- MSG, once or twice is you have eaten, don’t worry so much, it will not cause any harm to your baby.
Regarding – Folic acid tablet, you are regular in taking ever since you got to know about your pregnant status- that is good enough. Stop worrying on that account too
Regarding baby’s brain development- there is now a blood test – Double Marker, which when combined with a sonography at a specified time will almost make sure that baby is born, mentally healthy. Please speak to your Gynecologist about that.
