    Copper-T IUD Insertion and Removal Procedure in Nepal

    Copper-T, also known as an Intrauterine Device (IUD), is a contraceptive device used to prevent unwanted pregnancy. It is a T-shaped copper wire that produces some chemicals that are toxic to sperm and eggs, preventing pregnancy. Copper-T works for 3–10 years, and removal is required after it expires. A gynecologist performs this procedure.

    What is required before the procedure? 

    You can insert an IUD anytime you want, but a doctor’s consultation is a must. There are several steps before the procedure: 

    1. Your pelvis will be examined. 
    2. You will have to take a pregnancy test
    3. You will have to be screened for STIs. 

    Sometimes you may also have to take nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs under a doctor’s supervision before the procedure to reduce the cramps. 


    What happens during the procedure? 

    Your healthcare provider will gently clean your vagina and cervix with an antiseptic solution. They will align your cervical canal and uterus before the insertion. After that, they will insert the copper-T with the help of an applicator tube. The length of the thread-like string attached to the copper-T will be cut short after the device is properly placed. You will be asked to stay calm and rest for a while immediately after the insertion.  


    What has to be done after the procedure?

    You will be asked to visit after some time to:

    1. Check for any signs of complications. 
    2. Check whether the device has stayed in place. 
    3. Examine for any infections. 


    What can the complications be? 

    You need to immediately visit your health care provider if you;

    1. Experience excessive pelvic pain 
    2. Have any signs of pregnancy 
    3. Feel any foul vaginal discharge 
    4. Have heavy vaginal bleeding
    5. Feel the expulsion of your device 


    What does the Copper-T IUD removal procedure involve?

    You don’t have to prepare too much for the removal. It is usually easier and less painful than insertion. 

    You will be asked to lie on a table with your knees bent and legs spread apart. Your doctor will insert a tool named a speculum into your vagina to widen the opening. The threads of your IUD should be visible hanging out of your cervix into your vagina. Using a grasping tool, the doctor will carefully pull on the strings to remove the device. 

    If the doctor cannot see or reach the threads, they may use a special hook or tool to bring them into view.

    Sometimes, the device may get stuck inside during the removal. In such cases, the doctor will further widen the vaginal opening and use forceps to remove it. 


    For how long can it be kept inside? 

    IUDs work for 3–10 years, depending on the type of device. 


    Who is responsible for the procedure? 

    Only certified gynecologists are responsible for the insertion and removal of IUDs. Consulting them before insertion and removal is necessary. 


    How long does the procedure take?

    Insertion and removal of IUD only take a few minutes. Sometimes, removal may take some time if the IUD gets stuck inside. 


    Copper-T IUD insertion and removal procedure in Nepal

    IUD insertion and removal is a minor procedure that can be easily performed in outpatient clinics. However, there are some criteria for the insertion of an IUD. You should undergo some preliminary tests before the procedure. Therefore, booking an appointment for a gynecological consultation is the preliminary step in Nepal.

    Most of us know that breast cancer primarily impacts women; however, it is not commonly known that it can also affect men. Unfortunately, there is no specific cause for breast cancer, making prevention difficult.

    Therefore, it is crucial to be aware of the risk factors and symptoms associated with breast cancer. Early detection remains the best available option to prevent and effectively treat breast cancer in men.


    Male Breast Cancer

    Male breast cancer is an abnormal growth of cells in the breast tissue of males. Although males don’t have breasts with glands like females, they still have some breast cells and tissues.

    The cells sometimes undergo unusual changes, resulting in tumors. Although all lumps found in the breasts are not cancerous, it is always the right choice to get a breast screening test. 


    Types of Breast Cancer in Male 

    Basically, there are 3 main types of breast cancer in males.

    1. One that develops in the breast ducts and spreads to the rest of the breast. This type of breast cancer is most common in men. 
    2. One that develops in the lining of the breast ducts. Cancer doesn’t get spread in this type. 
    3. One that develops in the lobules. This type of cancer can spread to all your body parts.  


    Risk Factors of Breast Cancer in Men


    Symptoms of Breast Cancer in Men

    The symptoms of male breast cancer are very similar to those of female breast cancer. They include:


    Diagnosis

    There are a few ways to diagnose breast cancer in males. It includes procedures the same as for females.  


    How to perform a Breast self-examination in Men?

    There are a series of steps to perform a breast self-examination for men at home. 

    1. Look in the mirror. 
    2. Raise your hand and rest it on the back of your head. 
    3. Check both breasts, one at a time. 
    4. Press the area of the breast firmly clockwise and anticlockwise, using the right fingers for the left breast and the left fingers for the right breast. 
    5. Start from the edge of the breast towards the nipple. 
    6. Squeeze your nipples gently to look for any noticeable discharge. 
    7. Look closely for any changes in shape, appearance, size, or texture. 
    8. Repeat these steps once or twice a month to stay aware of any changes. 

    It is advisable to seek advice from a healthcare provider promptly if any changes in the breast are noticed.

    Treatment

    The treatment of breast cancer depends on the stage of breast cancer. 

    1. The surgical removal of the breast is one of the most effective treatment options for breast cancer. It is performed in two ways: Lymph nodes are first sampled if no cancer signs are observed through imaging. If cancer cells are detected in the sample test, the axillary lymph nodes are dissected. 
    2. After surgery, radiation therapy is recommended to kill any cancerous cells present. 
    3. Chemotherapy 
    4. Hormone Therapy 
    5. Targeted therapy for certain types of breast cancer. 


    Conclusion

    It’s important to raise awareness that breast cancer can affect males too, just like females. By having the right knowledge, men can also take steps towards self-examination.

    Taking preventive measures can lead to better outcomes when it comes to breast cancer in men. Males must be informed about breast issues so they can be aware of any potential risks associated.

    Dandruff, a prevalent skin condition, can greatly impact our appearance. Dealing with it can be quite bothersome and unsettling for everyone. However, it becomes challenging to treat or prevent it without understanding its root causes. Fortunately, taking preventive measures against dandruff is a simple task and is explained in this article.

    It is often said that “Prevention is better than cure.” Sickness can be unpredictable, and at times, we may not even realize we are unwell unless we undergo a check-up.

    Hence, scheduling a thorough yearly examination allows us to stay informed about female health issues and complications. Detecting and treating any issues early is crucial for improving our overall female health. So, let’s promote a life that is stress-free and disease-free with minimal investment.

    Introduction 

    Frenulum is a tiny elastic-like band of tissue that connects the glans of the penis to the foreskin underneath. In some cases, the frenulum is too short, which causes pain and discomfort at the time of erection which can be treated by Frenuloplasty.

    Frenuloplasty is a surgical procedure performed to increase the length of the frenulum through a small incision. It is one of the best and most effective treatment options for Frenulum Breve, as the result of the procedure can be visible after 6 weeks and sometimes sooner. This procedure can be done within 30 minutes. The aftercare is relatively simple, with some recommended painkillers and Ibuprofen tablets.


    Why is Frenuloplasty done?

    Frenuloplasty is performed to modify the length of the frenulum. It is used to treat painful erections of the penis. 


    Who needs a Frenuloplasty? 

    Frenuloplasty is recommended for the men who experience the following problems:

    1. Tearing and bleeding of the penile foreskin.
    2. Painful sexual intercourse.
    3. Frequent infections of the penis. 


    How is Frenuloplasty done?

    This procedure is performed under local anesthesia or general anesthesia by dividing the skin of the short penile frenulum across and re-stitching it lengthwise. The penis is then wrapped up with a loose bandage, which falls off on its own. 


    Advantages of Frenuloplasty

    1. Painless Procedure.
    2. Doesn’t require hospital admission. 
    3. High success rate. 
    4. No long-term side effects. 


    Precautions to be taken before and after the procedure


    Risks and Complications of the Procedure

    1. Swelling of Penis
    2. Reduced sensation in the glans
    3. Infection due to the incision. 
    4. Bleeding from the incision site
    5. Tenderness 
    6. Procedure Failure


    Frenuloplasty Procedure in Nepal

    Frenuloplasty can be easily done in outpatient clinics in Nepal, but the procedure depends on the patient’s condition and the surgeon’s advice. 

    If you want a Frenuloplasty procedure done, you can reach out to andrologist doctors working in Kathmandu. One of the best places to perform Frenuloplasty in Kathmandu is Clinic One, with the best andrologists available and a convenient environment.
