Every woman is unique and so are her health needs. The desire to conceive, the agony of infertility, the doubts in pregnancy, the troubles of pregnancy and the various aspects of woman's health that are un-diagnosed, not discussed and untreated are the issues that I will be touching upon in this podcast. During this journey, along with facts, I will be telling you some true stories and also inviting some guests to share their experiences. A huge thank you to Mr Navin Daga ( Music of Dhwani) and my wife Saroj for pushing me to make this happen :)

    Endometriosis and Infertility

    Endometriosis and Infertility

    If pain wasn't bad enough for a woman to suffer, Endometriosis also causes Infertility in most of the women it affects. The questions Dr Apoorva Pallam Reddy and I have tried addressing in this podcast are:


    How does Endometriosis cause Infertility?
    How should a woman with Endometriosis take her fertility journey forward?
    Is natural conception possible or advisable in a woman with endometriosis?
    Role of Intrauterine insemination and IVF in Endometriosis
    Should endometriotic cysts be removed or drained?
    Should chocolate cysts be left untouched?
    Is there a role of medical therapy in Endometriosis and Infertility?
    Is the success of IVF the same in a woman with Endometriosis?



    Some take-home messages:


    Endometriosis is a progressive disease
    Sometimes it may take up to 8 years before a diagnosis can be made
    The symptoms do not correlate with the severity of the disease
    Endometriosis causes infertility
    Fallopian tubes are usually open in endometriosis giving a false sense of complacency that pregnancy can occur naturally
    Endometriosis is bound to recure after both medical and surgical management
    Treatment will depend on the age, the symptoms, and the need for fertility
    Speak to your doctor about future plans and the pitfalls of surgery before getting a laparoscopy done.



    Dr Apoorva Pallam Reddy is a Gynaecologist, IVF specialist, Laparoscopic surgeon and Aesthetic Gynaecologist from Bangalore. At a very young age, she has achieved the knowledge and expertise that’s enviable. We work together on many projects together including hosting a series called “What Women Want” on Instagram as well as an Academy for training young Gynaecologists in Infertility called International Fertility Academy. An oration at any conference is like the coveted guest lecture which is given by someone very very senior and is usually in the main hall of the conference where every delegate, Indian and foreign is listening. You could almost compare it to a lifetime achievement award. I am proud to say that Dr Apoorva is the young fertility expert in the country to have delivered this Oration at a national conference and that too 2 years ago.

    Life After A Caesarean Section - Frequently Asked Questions

    Life After A Caesarean Section - Frequently Asked Questions

    Sheetal has just delivered a baby and there were a thousand questions racing through her mind. Friends and family weren't helping either by giving tons of advice and mostly conflicting. She had to deliver by a caesarean section and that added to her woes because everyone seemed to frighten the life out of her with post-surgery scares. Don't get up, don't walk around, don't climb stairs, don't drive, don't sit on the floor, don't eat this don't eat that.......it was driving her up the wall !!!!

    I would have never thought of doing this podcast if it wasn't for my friend Ritika Singh Goyal who suggested the topic and bombarded me with a long list of questions as well. If you like this podcast, it only her efforts that we all need to thank :)

    So it's time for myth-busting with Dr Apoorva Pallam Reddy. We have tried as detailed an answer as possible. Keeping in line with my idea of starting podcasting, I hope none of you have to refer to any other person or website for these questions ever again.

    To know more about the work of Dr Apoorva follow her on @drapoorvapallamreddy or visit her website www.drapoorvapallam.com

    Your reviews, comments and suggestions are very important as they help me maintain the quality of my work and of course give me the necessary impetus to keep going on.

    Nutrition in the 1st Trimester of Pregnancy with Nutritionist Nupur Arya

    Nutrition in the 1st Trimester of Pregnancy with Nutritionist Nupur Arya

    One of the first things I get asked when I sit down with couples who have just discovered pregnancy are questions related to diet. Some are direct questions related to diet while others are indirectly related to nausea, acidity, constipation, weight gain etc. Then there are some for whom diet becomes very important to avoid complications especially when they are starting off pregnancy with either increased weight or diabetes or constipation.


    Is tea or coffee harmful?
    Can I have aerated drinks?
    Is Mayonnaise safe?
    Can I have cheese?
    What about papaya and pineapple?
    What do I do to take care of this nausea and acidity?
    I already have glucose intolerance, how do I keep safe in pregnancy?

    These are just some of the doubts expressed by almost all women.

    Luckily we have Mrs Nupur Arya, Founder of Nutrimend with me to help with all these doubts and more. She is very active on social media and one can follow her brand @nutrimend on Instagram.
