Hi I understand your concern. If you have taken I pill after one episode of unprotected intercourse no need to take it again. Yes, it can delay the periods or can cause intermenstrual bleeding because these are high dose hormones. So avoid taking I pill again and again.

Don't worry some minor corrections in lifestyle will solve your problem.

Health Benefits Of Chia Seeds For Diabetes, Bone Health And Weight Loss

1] Chia seeds help in weight loss –

Chia seeds help in weight loss by increasing metabolism. Chia seeds when taken as a pre workout snack will help in increasing your stamina to burn out more calories and stretch your workout timings. Chia seeds are full of fiber and help by satisfying your hunger. Making you feel full. Chia seeds can be very helpful in ladies with pcod and pcos problem. Chia seeds help against bloating.


2] Chia seeds help in diabetes –

Chia seeds have a tendency to absorb a lot of water and swell up, this helps in slowing down the digestion process and hence slow release of sugar in the blood. This helps a type 2 diabetic person to manage his blood sugar levels well. This will help in keeping you full for longer and hence avoid overeating.

 

3] Chia seeds help in maintaining teeth and bone health –

Chia seeds are super sources of calcium and all the other minerals that are important for bone and teeth health. Chia seeds actually contain more calcium than dairy products. For people who do not consume dairies, chia seed comes as a blessing in disguise.

 

4] Chia seeds improve heart health –

Several studies are being conducted on effects of chia seeds on heart health. A study at cleveland suggested that chia seeds improve blood pressure levels in type ii diabetics. The study also suggested that chia seeds have a positive effect on other markers of heart health. It improves the hdl cholesterol (good cholesterol), and decreases the bad cholesterol and triglyceride levels in blood of a type ii diabetic.

There are certain studies that have not been very conclusive of benefits of chia seeds on heart health. Chia seeds are good source of fiber, omega 3 and protein and they definitely are the best choice of food for your heart’s health.

5] Chia seeds are good source of protein

We all know that proteins are the building blocks of our bodies and proteins have such important functions that are crucial for life processes. Chia seeds are protein by 14 % of their weight.

This helps chia seeds to be counted as a super food for weight loss. It not only reduces appetite and makes you feel fuller for longer, but it also suppresses hunger. Wow! these features are just what a weight watcher desires.

Chia seeds hence make a super snack especially in the evenings when one tends to feel hungry and over eat snacks.

 

6] Chia seeds are full of antioxidants –

The department of food and nutrition of purdue university in indiana conducted a study on chia seeds in 2008 and found than chia seeds contain a very good amount of antioxidants.

Chia seeds contain following antioxidants:-

  • Quercitin – quercitin has endurance increasing properties. It gives an instant boost of energy for physical training. It also helps in fighting fatigue during workout, thus increasing the stamina.
  • Chlorogenic acid – chlorogenic acid may be helpful in slowing the post prandial release of glucose in the blood stream. It keeps the liver and the gall bladder healthy by regularising the flow of bile and not allowing it to stagnate. Chlorogenic acid may also be helpful in preventing and curbing the growth of certain brain tumours
  • Caffeic acid – caffeic acid may be of help in preventing colitis, cardiovascular diseases, inflammation and also certain cancers. It also increases immunity.

 

Chia seeds are a good source of omega 3 –

Chia seeds are advertised as good source of omega 3 fatty acids, but it is important to know the underlying facts. It is true that chia seeds contain more omegas 3 than salmon fish. But amongst the different types of omega 3 fatty acids, chia seeds provide ala (alpha linolenic acid). Ala has to be converted to its active form to be of use to us. However humans are inefficient in converting these acids in to active form. And hence their consumption would hardly make any difference or benefit us. If you are looking to supplement omega 3 in your diet, you could rather choose flax seeds.

Lifestyle and Prevention One of the best treatments for PCOS is a healthy lifestyle. A healthy diet low in refined carbohydrates is important, as this can help regulate blood sugar levels. Exercise can also help the body regulate insulin and keep excess weight off. Losing weight is challenging with PCOS, but doing so can help reduce the male hormone levels in the body, and some women will begin to ovulate naturally. With a proper diagnosis, lifestyle changes and PCOS treatment, women can get relief from this condition and the overwhelming health problems it can cause. Homoeopathy offers permanent solution for this syndrome, the medicine is selected based on symptom totality and individualisation, some of the medicines for PCOD are Graphites, Lachesis, Calcarea carb, Lycopodium, Nux Vomica, Sepia,Ignatia, Staphysagria.

Hello doctor am a new mother my son with 6months old. After my delivery (normal) I have been spotting till 4 months when I said to doctor she gave me BCP for 21 days to stop spotting and regulate my periods. She said to use them for 3 months.

You are having morning sickness which is due to hormones in bcp. Stop it if you are feeding your baby too. Get a simple procedure called menstrual regulation with a syringe under local anesthesia and send tissue for testing. This procedure is diagnostic and therapeutic, it helps us know the cause of bleeding and helps you shed the extra tissue which might have been retained after a normal delivery as you were spotting for 4 months after delivery and after that under influence of hormones the bleeding got stopped/ erratic/ heavy. Get Mr. Done and do let us know the report. If all well get intrauterine device fitted after a month of getting a normal cycle.

She is 52 years of age and her hormones are on decline. That is the reason for her less interest. She can be started on hormone replacement therapy after initial evaluation.
