Hello doctor,

I am 32 years old. We are planning to extend our family whenever I will be perfect in health so that there should not be any health issues to the baby and the mother. I would like to elaborate on my health condition so that you can advise us on how to improve my health condition.

Please note that the below tests have conducted before three months and after that, I have gone through some medication for one and a half months.

1. Iron, vitamin D, and hemoglobin: My hemoglobin remains low every time I go for annual health check-up (for the past seven years). Currently, it is 10.8. Iron - 18, TIBC - 492, transferrin saturation – 3.66, vitamin D - 19.91.

2. Yeast infection in vagina: I have been suffering from recurrence of yeast infection in the vagina for the past one year. It comes again and again and I am taking Fluka every week one tablet. After taking Fluka, I feel no itching and no yeast infection but within a week or so it happens again.

3. Boobs itching and enlargement of area around nipples: for the past four to five years, I have been observed that area around my nipples has enlarged, and that area is really very dry and itchy. Although, there are no lumps in the breast and armpit.

I visited a gynecologist but they told that it is a dermatology issue. Hence, I also visited a dermatologist and the doctor suggests that it is just because my skin is extremely dry and it can be cured after applying good moisturizer in the long run. But I have not seen any improvement till date. I really want to be healthy and want to get rid of the above issues before conceiving the baby.
