Trouble after sex with lover!
1. I am really worried about my vaginal discharge. I had sex with my boyfriend seven months back and after that my periods were normal, nothing happened so I thought I am safe. As it was my first time, I did not take any precautions and had unprotective sex. (Although, now I realise my mistake) However, now suddenly some browish blood - which I can't say looks normal, comes out. I didn't have periods - infact they are not regular. Although, I have not experienced such a thing before, is it possible that I have got any sexually transmitted disease or anything else? Why am I experiencing this after seven months? How can I get help and is it curable? What steps should I take?
My snoring is horror for others!
2. I am a 22-year-old postgraduate student living in a hostel. My problem is that I snore badly. I have this habit from past few years. Initially, I used to snore occasionally but now it has become a ritual. It puts me into a very embarrassing situation as my friends always make fun of me in public. I will be getting married by next year that is making me even more upset as I feel I will become an object of laughter! Please help.

Having baby after so long but...
1. I got married in 1996 and have a fantastic married life. My age is 33 and my wife's age is 30. After a childless marriage for two years, we went to a gynecologist. After an in-depth treatment, in 2002 March, my wife conceived and was advised complete bed rest. Unfortunately, in July 2002, she had to go for an abortion due to cervical problem. We kept a gap of one year and she conceived again. It is almost four months now. She has been given cervical stitch after three months of pregnancy and is under complete bed rest. Two weeks back, she complained of severe pain on the left leg and we consulted our gynecologist and after a Doppler test, it has been observed that she had blood clotting on her veins. We went to a cardiologist who suggested that my wife should be admitted to the ICU to dissolve the clotting. However after few days, she was discharged from the hospital as she became normal and has been advised to take 'Clexane 6 mg' (precaution for clotting) injection. My question is whether there is any chance of repetition of blood clotting in future? Will injection cause any problem to the baby? Can we go for some Homeo (known to be a non-side effect medicine) specialist to have some treatment to avoid blood clotting again? We have suffered enough (financially, mentally) due to the above incidents and are taking this as a very precious pregnancy. Undoubtedly, your expert reply will help us in deciding.
Reply From Dr. Prem Lata Chawla: There are no definite answers for your questions. You will have to depend on your doctors in whom you reposed so much faith in the beginning and pray to God. All I can say is that there are no home remedies for clotting disorders.
Facial hair embarrasses me
2. I am facing a very embarrassing problem of extra facial hair. Is there any healthy way to get them removed? One of my friends has recommended laser treatment. How effective and expensive is it? How much does the procedure cost and which is the best place in Delhi to get it done?
Reply From Dr. Prem Lata Chawla: You should see a skin specialist who practices cosmetology. Treatment with LASER is quite effective.
