A bicornuate uterus has two horns and a heart shape which has a wall inside and a partial split outside. It is the most common CONGENITAL anomaly. Several studies show that women with a bicornuate uterus have about 60% success rate in delivering a living baby. In years case she has pcod so it will also affect her fertility n causing problems to have pregnancy. It is hormonal disturbance so it should be treated. According to studies total of 11 women approximately 90%successfuly carried a pregnancy to term. HOMEOPATHY definitely help years wife for treating pcod n to carry healthy pregnancy. Good luck.

Brown discharge indicate old bleeding more than 3 days ago which is so less that it could not flow out as blood. If there is no pain or fever or backache, then it may clear up in 3-4 days. If not, or if it develops into fresh bleeding then you have to visit the doctor and an ultrasound may be required. Intercourse may not be the direct cause. Some bleeding is expected after miscarriage but fresh bleeding after 20 days needs to be investigated.

Vajikarana Therapy for Sexual Disorders in Ayurveda

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

Vajikarana Therapy for Sexual Disorders in Ayurveda

Sexuality has fascinated people in all walks of life from antiquity to the present. Healthy sexual functioning plays a fundamental role in maintaining harmony and happiness in married life. It is the most essential to fill the procreational, recreational and relational aspects of life.

It provides a means to express love, which is the basis for all kinds of creative activities. The absence of which hinders the marital relationship that leaves the frustration, at some point ends in divorce and causes inefficiency in performing routine duties.

Infertility is defined as failure to achieve a pregnancy after a year of unprotected regular intercourse with the same partner. Infertility also affects men and women. Living a healthy lifestyle is important for fertility. Lifestyle factors can affect a man’s fertility, and many of these factors are things that a man can control. Leading a healthy lifestyle improves not only the possibilities of conceiving but also improves overall health.

Ayurveda, the science of life, prevention and longevity, is the oldest and most complete holistic medical system available in the world. Its basic principles can be found in the Hindu scriptures called the Vedas, the ancient Indian books of wisdom written more than 5,000 years ago.

Ayurveda uses the principles inherent in nature to help preserve the health of a person by keeping the body, mind and spirit of the person in perfect balance with nature.

Ayurveda has developed a special branch to deal with the problems of infertility known as Vajikarana, which means: make us potent as a vaji “horse”. The name derives from the fact that horses have always been a symbol of virility in ancient cultures.

Ayurveda states that reproductive health depends on the health of shukra and atharv dhatu, or reproductive tissue, in both men and women respectively. In women tissue atharv produces the ovum as part of the monthly cycle, and men produce semen.

The quality of the breeding juices is directly related to the quality of the other tissues. The physical body consists of seven tissues (dhatu): plasma, blood, muscles, fat, bones, nerves and finally the reproductive tissue. The food we eat is metabolized in the digestive system and transformed – through agni, or fire – into nutrients for our body. These nutrients are what will make up the first tissue, plasma.

From there, the other tissues are being form one by one using as part of the subsequent tissue as the base material. The height of this process is reached when part of the reproductive tissue is transformed into an eighth tissue, subtle in nature, known as ojas (an essence that gives us immunity, brilliance, strength, splendor and vitality)

Infertility can often be associated with deficiency in the correct production of body tissues, poor quality of agni, as well as the presence of toxins due to inadequate diet and lifestyle.

There are two types of foods and herbs that help improve shukra dhatu, and thus help improve fertility. Some are called bringhana, and these foods strengthen the seven dhatus. The second type is called vrishya and these foods and herbs are for the shukra dhatu in particular. Bringhana foods are fresh organic fruits and vegetables, whole grains, milk proteins, soaked almonds and walnuts, natural sweets, juicy fruits like mangos and dried fruits like figs. Vrishya foods are asparagus, broccoli, happy cow’s milk and spices like cumin seeds and coriander, shatavari, kapikachu and kalamusli.

Types of vajikarana

Ayurveda considers all substances that enhance the sexual activity as vajikarana dravyas and may include herbs, ornaments, gold, silver, pearls, precious stones etc. Vajikarana dravyas include the following:

Semen enhancing like milk, ghee, gokshura, shatavari, yashtimadhu etc. Semen purifying like kushtha, sugar cane, bayberry etc. Promoting fertilization capacity in semen like brahmi, shatavari, katuka, guduchi etc. Libido increasing like akarakarabha, saffron, clove, garlic, pippali etc. Premature ejaculation preventing like nutmeg, ashwagandha, chandan, jatamansi etc.

Benefits of vajikarana therapy:

Increases the time span of erections. Cure erectile dysfunction. Prevents premature ejaculation. Stimulates man for sexual acts to satisfy females without getting tire. Transforms lean and impotent men into powerful and vigorous. Facilitates in procreation of healthy off springs. Increases sexual energy and strength like a horse. Increases will power, intellect and memory in addition to promoting a healthy body.

You should know the safe periods, when pregnancy is not possible. First to seven and twenty first to the end of the cycle are safe. On other days use condoms or contraceptive pills (though they have lot of adverse effects)

4 Things to Know about Spine Surgeries

4 Things to Know about Spine Surgeries

The thought of going under the knife to treat your spine problem may give rise to a range of emotions; make you ponder over a number of things such as the recovery period, procedure and techniques involved and so on. Nonetheless, before opting for the surgery, there are certain points that you should go over and these are:

  • Be well aware of the cause of your pain - Identifying the cause that is behind your pain is vital in order to decide whether the surgery is going to prove beneficial in the long run or not. If the cause is not identified as the right one, the surgery may prove futile and you may not get the pain relief that you're looking for.
  • Gather detailed information about your spine surgeon - Before visiting the spine surgeon, you should collect detailed information about the specialist so as to be able to come up with appropriate questions concerning the surgery. From questions concerning about the surgeon's success and complication rates, numbers of surgeries performed to qualifications of the surgeon, these and much more should be part of your evaluation process.
  • Prepare yourself before a consultation - It's good to prepare yourself before a medical consultation. Whether it's researching about the surgery and your condition or being well aware of your family's medical history, or details about the pain that you experience, or your expectations from the surgery, every aspect should be covered so that you derive the maximum benefit from your meeting.
  • Carry out your own research - Carrying out your own research on the alternatives before opting for the surgery can put you on a better footing. It's imperative to compare the opinion put forward by the surgeon from genuine sources so that you're better able to understand the merits and demerits of the treatment.

Now the baby can not move around due to lack of space but you will still feel kicking movement. Daily after breakfast, lunch & dinner lie in the left lateral position& count the kicks for one hour, there should be 2_3 movements. If less than this or less than 10_12 in 10 hours, report immediately to the hospital.

If it happens again and again, you will need some hormone tests, an ultrasound and a gynec checkup. Usually normal period can last 5-6 days. The first day is light, 2nd and 3rd days are heavy, then gradually it lessens, becomes darker and may be fully over by 5-6 days. Any form of bleeding lasting more than 7 days needs to be looked by a doctor.

My wife is pregnant she is in 7 month she is having stomach pain in every night what should I do?
It should be evaluated by a gynecologist. If it is associated with the hardening of the uterus and pain is intermittant then it can be labor pains, but that is unlikely in her case as you said it comes every night. It can not be urine infection as well as it would be contineous pain. It has to be pain from the acidity as she is lying on the bed, it is causing reflux. Iut should be treated with antacids.
