Premature Ovarian faliure

This is one condition where the ovaries stop functioning Prematurely(by definition before the age of
40 years).Not a very rare condition and I have come across such patients in past as well.But yesterday I could feel how traumatic it must be.A dear friend who married late  was diagnosed with POF.She didn't express as much grief as she is a fighter but I was horrified.She is yet to start her family.
Of course for her or anybody who hasn't completed ones family the option is ovum donation and assisted reproduction.But that is not the only issue.It means an early menopause with all it's manifestations like hot flushes,brittle bone disease(osteoporosis and of course an emotional trauma).A person with POFmight need Hormone replacment therapy( not widely recommended though due to associated side effects),calcium supplementation and exercise.

Maternity dresses in Gurgaon

Quite a lot of my pregnant patients wish me to help them by suggesting shops which sell good maternity clothes.Now honestly I don't have much clue.I think there is a shop in DT Mega mall next to the toy shop which I frequent due to my son.I was doing a google search and came across a site the link of which I will share with you gals.This site seems to be a blog devoted to Gurgaon and living in Gurgaon.And as I was browsing through the site I was happy to see some good comments by my patients.Thanks a lot Sashi and G.Good to know you feel comfortable with me.Click here Gurgaon watch for the nice research done by blog master on stores keeping maternity dresses.Happy Shopping :))))

Interactive blog

I always wished it to be an interactive blog.I would be happy if my patients who are visiting my blog have questions to ask or ideas to share which can be used by others facing similar situation as yours.I know many of you do visit the blog and it would be lot more fun if we could chat outside the confines of my OPD where actually at times I might not be able to give personalised answer to all your queries.
