There is no harm in taking i-pill as it is very safe, and it should be taken within 24 hrs if possible. You can take it upto 5 days but within 24 hrs it is most effective. Menses can get irregular for a month but then it will be regularised.

I and my girl frnd had sex. On 4-5-16. We not used any safety. She get her period at 18-5-16. She had cycle of 28 days. Is there any chance of getting pregnancy.

Yes, there could be a chance of pregnancy as sex has happened on 14th day of a person having 28 day cycle. But this is possible only if she has ovulated near that act of sex. To be safe and to prevent pregnancy you can seek help of a gynecologist and take emergency contraceptive pills (ecpill), which have to be taken withing 72 hours of an unprotected sex act. These ecpills are very effective and they may make the lady have a menses within few days of consuming it. So take the tablet, as you still are within the 72 hours period but do keep watch on the menses. Menses after taking ecpills are heavy and may require a visit to the gynecologist to curb it if you do not take ecpills, then you can wait for the menses to arrive by 16-18 may and if she misses that date you can do pregnancy test on a morning urine sample in a lab.

Hye. Thank you for your query. It will take at least 6 to 8 weeks for the healing of the c- section to totally take place. Till then be careful not to strain your abdomen. Avoid carrying heavy things, avoid bending from your waist, getting up from the bed should be in the right manner without bending from the waist. Pain should subside in a few days. If pain still continues, please consult your doctor to check for blisters or infection.

2. Beneficial in gastritis, increases skin lustre, eyesight, decreases wrinkles, anti aging, reduces hairfall, beneficial in asthmatic and other allergic conditions, increases the immunity etc etc etc

Its an amla a day will keep the doctor away.

Sir I present complete 6 weeks pregnant 1st scan is completed but baby heart beat not Seen any problem please explain...
Heartbeat The fetal heartbeat is often detectable at a six-week ultrasound. The normal fetal heartbeat at six weeks is about 90 to 110 beats per minute. Detecting a heartbeat at this stage indicates that the pregnancy will probably continue and not end in miscarriage, although this is not absolutely guaranteed. If the sonographer cannot detect a heartbeat, the pregnant woman will generally be advised to come back in another week or two to check again, since sometimes a heartbeat that is undetectable at six weeks may be stronger and more noticeable at seven weeks or more.

Health Benefits of Eating Chapatis

Chapatis are made using a soft dough comprising flour (whole grain common wheat)

- Chapati contains vitamins and minerals like magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, calcium and iron.
- Also contains zinc and other minerals which are good for our skin.
- Easily digested. This way, it is better to eat a chapati instead of rice.
- As the chapati is loaded with iron it is good for the hemoglobin levels of our blood.
- When no oil or butter is added, chapatis are pretty low in their calories. So, you can use it as a weight loss diet.
- Wheat chapati helps in preventing constipation. Those who suffer from constipation can try a diet that includes chapati.

Here's What Happens When You Exercise After Drinking

A little buzzed after a drink or two, but in the mood to work out? we would advise you against it. Alcohol lingers in the blood stream for a while after you have had it, so it would be best to avoid working out. Read this article to know what happens to your body when you exercise after drinking.

- diuretic effect: alcohol is actually a diuretic that increases the urge to urinate which hinders your pace and motion while you are working out. This totally defeats the purpose of a workout and makes you visit the washroom more often than you would like to. This makes the body lose precious electrolytes too, which can leave you drained of your energy. This can also be a potentially fatal situation in case you become dehydrated.

- coordination: it is a well-known fact that alcohol lingers in the blood stream for up to twenty four hours, even after a good night's sleep. So ensure that you do not work out after having a drink or two because it can leave you fuzzy headed and a little low in the coordination department. We all know that one of the side effects of having alcohol includes being a little bleary eyed and even uncoordinated. This can lead to injuries in case you are handling heavy equipment in the gym.

- muscle recovery: the point of working out is to induce good blood circulation so that there is plenty of motion with coordination and good muscle recovery with the repetitive movements. Alcohol hinders all that because it decreases the blood flow and makes for less muscle recovery which can actually lead to injuries and a heavy feeling in the muscles and joints of the body due to the extra effort it takes in order to complete the movement or set.

- heat related illnesses: dehydration is one of the common side effects of alcohol, and when coupled with sweat and heat emanating from the body, it can lead to a heat stroke and other heat related illnesses which can prove to be fatal.

- heart rate: alcohol consumption the night before a sports performance or right before a work out can actually affect how the heart responds to warm up exercises and the actual work out.

- metabolism: alcohol slows down the metabolism which interferes with the process of energy production in the body. This leads to less energy during your work out which can sap you out completely as the liver will not produce enough of glucose.
Make a good choice to avoid an uncoordinated and potentially hazardous work out by not drinking prior to a gym session.
