Gynecologist's advice: signs of mastopathy

QUESTION: Is it possible to do yoga during menstruation? Some say it’s harmful, others say that it’s even useful, reduces pain and discomfort ...
I am not a specialist in yoga, so I can simply explain what should not be done during menstruation. At this time, the uterine mucosa (endometrium) is rejected, which should flow out with blood. There are two more exits from the uterine cavity - into the abdominal cavity through two fallopian tubes. Normally, a small amount of these secretions enters the abdominal cavity, but if menstrual flow gets there in larger quantities, this can contribute to the development of a disease such as endometriosis. Thus, if the training program includes exercises related to the position of the body upside down, as well as exercises that increase pressure in the abdominal cavity, they should be abandoned for the entire period of menstruation. As far as I know, yoga classes really contribute to the disappearance of some pain during menstruation, but this is a consequence of systemic exercises for several months or even years. Nevertheless, I do not recommend using yoga as an anesthetic.
SIGNS OF MASTOPATHY
QUESTION: Recently, painful sensations in the mammary glands on the eve of “critical days” have become noticeably stronger. What is the reason for this and do I need to see a doctor?
Such sensations in the mammary glands are most likely associated with the development of mastopathy, a benign disease in which the ratio of fat and fibrous tissue in the mammary gland changes. In addition, such changes can be a sign of abnormalities in the ovaries. In your case, it is recommended to consult a mammologist and gynecologist - after examination, these two specialists will be able to choose an effective treatment.
QUESTION: If doctors found thrush during pregnancy, is the treatment harmful to the baby? Maybe it's better to wait for his birth? Or untreated thrush will harm the baby during childbirth?
Thrush during pregnancy is not uncommon. The probable cause of thrush is a decrease in immunity that occurs during this period. Thrush is not as safe as it seems to many. Fungal infection can have a negative effect on the course of pregnancy and the fetus, therefore, if this disease is detected, treatment is mandatory. There is a group of drugs that are acceptable for use in your position, as their relative safety for the fetus has been proven.
HOW TO CONTACT YOUR THREAT
Although thrush can not be attributed to life-threatening diseases, but it must be treated in a timely manner and the means - together with the doctor - to select the most effective. And it is preferable in tablets or capsules, for example, such as Flucostat - a modern and reliable drug for the treatment of thrush. It acts quickly, and the course of treatment is transferred quite comfortably - you can live a familiar and full life.
