I am 28 years old female n I was reading about pregnancy symptoms n I can relate to most of them although m not sure because it's been 10 days only I guess. I want to ask that I have too much itching in my private area from 1 month, I think it's infection. Is there any problem, will it affect pregnancy? Also can I take folic acid tablets, I have 1 mg (morning and bed time)

Hi lybrate-user, You can check with home pregnancy test. If it comes out negative wait for 1 more week and check again. For the itching thing please visit a good gyenecologist as we girls are more prone to infections.

10 Health Benefits of Peas

PG Dip Diet, B.Sc. - Dietitics / Nutrition

10 Health Benefits of Peas

Peas are really little powerhouses of nutrition that are a boon for your health and the whole planet. Read all their benefits, how to use them properly, and some easy recipes.  We start with the benefits of this tasty powerfood.

1.  Weight Management:

Peas are low fat but high everything else.  A cup of peas has less than 100 calories but lots of protein, fiber and micro-nutrients.

2. Stomach cancer prevention:

Peas contain high amounts of a health-protective polyphenol called coumestrol. A study in Mexico City determined you only need 2 milligrams per day of this phytonutrient to prevent stomach cancer. A cup of peas has at least 10.

3. Anti-aging, strong immune system, and high energy:

This comes from the high levels of anti-oxidants including:

  • flavinoids: = catechin and epicatechin
  • carotenoid= alpha-carotene and beta-carotene
  • phenolic acids = ferulic and caffeic acid
  • polyphenols = coumestrol

4. Prevention of wrinkles, Alzheimer’s, arthritis, bronchitis, osteoporosis and candida

These come from peas strong anti-inflammatory properties. Excess inflammation has also been linked to, heart disease, cancer, and aging in general. These properties include:

  • Pisumsaponins I and II and pisomosides A and B are anti-inflammatory phytonutrients found almost exclusively in peas.
  • vitamin C and vitamin E, and a good amount of the antioxidant mineral zinc
  • omega-3 fat in the form of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA).

5.  Blood sugar regulation:

High fibre slows and protein slows down how fast sugars are digested.
The anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory prevent or reverse insulin resistance (type 2 diabetes)
All carbohydrates are natural sugars and starches with no white sugars or chemicals to worry about.

 

6. Heart disease prevention:

The many antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds support healthy blood vessels. The formation of plaque along our blood vessel walls starts with chronic, excessive oxidative stress and inflammation.

The generous amounts of vitamin B1 and folate, B2, B3, and B6 reduce homocysteine levels  which are  risk factor for heart disease.

7. Healthy for the environment:

  • Peas work with bacteria in the soil to ‘fix’ nitrogen from the air and deposit it in the soil. This reduces the need for artificial fertilizers since one of their main ingredients is nitrogen.
  • After peas have been harvested the remaining plant easily breaks down to create more organic fertilizer for the soil.
  • Peas are also able to grow on minimal moisture so they are a perfect crop in many areas not needing irrigation or using up valuable water supplies.

8.  Prevent constipation:

The high fiber content in peas improves bowel health and peristalsis. 

9. Healthy bones

Just one cup of peas contain 44% of your Vitamin K which helps to anchor calcium inside the bones. It’s B vitamins also help to prevent osteoporosis.

10.  Reduces bad cholesterol:

The niacin in peas helps reduce, the production of triglycerides and VLDL (very low-density lipoprotein, which results in in less bad cholesterol, increased HDL (“good”) cholesterol, and lowered triglycerides.

Dear user. Taking mirinda during your pregnancy is not harmful for you or baby just because mirinda is an aerated drink. If you have acidity related problem or problems related to digestion, then just avoid mirinda. You should avoid jumping totally when you have your child inside your womb. Take care.

Managing periods
Hello,
During menstruation, women can get more stressed out and suffer from uncomfortable symptoms such as fatigue, mood swings, breast tenderness, bloating, cramps, headache, food cravings and constipation or diarrhea.
By eating the right foods and avoiding the wrong foods can help reduce stress and lethargic and stay bright and breezy.
Avoiding certain foods during your period may help discomfort.-----
Beverages: restrict consumption of beverages such as coffee, tea and soft drinks which worsen symptoms like anxiety, depression and breast tenderness. Instead have herbal tea and plenty of water to keep body hydrated.
Salt: controlling salt consumption can help you avoid bloating and the puffy, heavy feeling that comes with it.
High-fat foods: hormone changes during the menstrual cycle shows symptoms such as bloating and breast tenderness. Avoid foods such as whole-milk dairy products, sausages, burgers, cheese.
Sugary foods: due to hormonal changes during menstruation, blood sugar levels become unstable, and many women crave sweets. Eating foods high in sugar adds to your blood sugar fluctuations resulting in mood swings, tension, lethargic, immune system imbalance and fatigue.
Recommended foods during periods:-----
Beans: the high fiber content in beans helps reduce congestion, cramps, constipation and diarrhea.
Vegetables: green vegetables are rich in calcium, magnesium and potassium and thus help prevent menstrual pains, excessive bleeding and clot the blood.
Water: water retention is one of the main causes for cramps. To reduce water retention, drink enough water.
Whole grains: eating small amounts of carbohydrates every three hours and before bed can help combat premenstrual syndrome and also reduces neuromuscular tension, fatigue and depression.
Yogurt: yogurt contains live cultures and active bacteria which promote healthy digestion and also a good source of calcium.
Take care.

Hello sir/madam Me and my wife are trying to conceive for the last 4-5 months without any success so far. On the prescription of my wife's gynecologist We did a full body checkup of my wife and my sperm test, while all her blood, thyroid, and other checkups came normal, my sperm test was below average. She was a gynecologist so she only gave me basic advice and asked me to see a urologist but I'm afraid of the ongoing fraudulent behaviour of some of the doctors these days who want to admit you and give you expensive treatments whether you need them or not. My sperm test results were as follows Sperm qty: 1.5 Ml Appearance : milky white Transparency : translucent Viscosity : increased Liquefaction time : 30 min Abstinence : 6 days Sperm count : 80 million/ml Viability : 75% or more Motility at 37* C A. Rapid Linear progressive : 20% Grade IV & III B. Sluggish Linear Progressive : 10% Grade II C. Non Progressive : 40% Grade I D. Non Motile : Dead 30% Abnormal sperm 6% Pin heads 1% Bent neck 02% Double heads 03% Rest all abnormalities were 0% Cellular elements: Epithelial cells 1-2 PHF All other cells were nil Other finding Granular debris : Nil Agglutination of sperm : Nil Crystals : Nil I do not drink or smoke I used to take hukka once in a while which also I have stopped 5-6 months ago. I have asthma and I'm insomniac I usually get 4-5 hours of sleep a night. I was taking finpecia (finasteride 1%) to treat my male pattern hair loss for last 8 years but I have quit it 6 months ago as I read on web that it can reduce male fertility. Am I biologically fit to be a father ? If not then what are the treatment options to increase my semen quality. And otherwise is IVF or other medical pregnancy options are applicable for me. Can they guarantee a pregnancy. What is approx cost of these treatments. help me please

Please do a urine test for pregnancy. That will give fair idea. Many a times, pregnancies are symptomless until 3-4 months. If test is negative, then you will need ayurveda medicines for the system to get normal. Please get in contact after that.

Chances of pregnancy are always there irrespective whether she has her periods once in three months or every month, however in such cases ovulation is not decided when it is happening, so ideally you should either wait or get an ultrasound or urine pregnancy test done to rule out for pregnancy just in case.

You should not eat anything that causes distention as it will hurt the stitches. Take toned milk , good nourishment ,including chana and moong daal , vitamins , iron and folic acid plus calcium tablets should not be stopped after delivery like many women do. do baby work like feeding, cleaning, bathing ,but do not lift heavy weights for at least 2 months.
