Spottng is ok, wait for next menstrual period and if missed do urine pregnancy test. Both of you go and meet gynecologist to understand different family planning methods to choose one which suits you as couple as unwanted pills are only for emergency not as regular family planning.

Drinking Tea Right After Meals - Is It Good Or Bad?

BAMS, MD - Ayurveda

Drinking Tea Right After Meals  - Is It Good Or Bad?

For a tea lover, nothing in the world can be more gratifying than a cup of tea. Happiness or sadness, stress or celebration, the answer to everything is a cup of heavenly delight. In addition to the hard core tea addicts, many people, in general, have the habit of drinking tea after meals. While many see this as a harmless addiction, some experts consider the habit anything but healthy. What is the truth then? Is it harmless to drink tea after meals or is the truth different from what is apprehended? In this article, we try to find an answer to this baffling question.

Some reports suggest that drinking tea, particularly the green tea or any other herbal tea after meals may be a good practice. The green tea is known for its high antioxidant and polyphenol content.

  1. When consumed after a meal, the green or herbal tea acts as a catalyst, accelerating the production as well as the stimulation of many digestive enzymes including gastric juice, saliva, and bile to aid in the digestion process.
  2. The catechins (polyphenolic compounds), an active compound present in green tea enhances the pepsin activity to a great extent. An increased pepsin activity indicates a better breakdown of the dietary proteins.
  3. The antioxidants in the green are known to deal with many complications associated with digestion with elan. In fact, green tea is considered an effective digestive stimulant. It is known to provide relief from intestinal gas as well as conditions of Irregular Bowel Syndrome (namely Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s disease).
  4. Green tea or herbal tea also helps in better absorption of the dietary nutrients.

While these points reflect the benefits of having tea (mainly green or herbal tea) after meals, there is the other side to it. Not all people enjoy having green tea. Thus, when we discuss the merits or the demerits, we should consider tea in general and not just herbal or green tea.

  1. The Tannin present in tea comes with many side effects.
    • Tannin interferes with absorption of many minerals including iron, zinc, and calcium (slows down the absorption). As a result, there may be a deficiency of these minerals, triggering a myriad of health complications.
    • In some people, tannin may also trigger constipation.
    • Thus, people already suffering from the deficiency of these minerals should refrain from drinking tea between meals.
  2. Another ingredient present in tea is the caffeine.
    • It is a well-known fact that increased consumption of caffeine can result in insomnia.
    • For people with a stomach ulcer, caffeine may be harmful as it is known to aggravate the condition further.
    • It can also trigger a shoot in blood pressure and heart rate.

Taking all the points (both merits and demerits) into consideration, it is best to avoid drinking tea between meals on a regular basis. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ayurveda.

I have missed my periods last month? but nothing happened between me and my bf. is this normal?

I have missed my periods last month?
but nothing happened between me and my bf.
is this normal?
Yes slight irregularities of any type, can occur in periods without much problems & if this is not happening regularly, we can ignore it. If nothing happened between you & your bf, then why are you so worried. So if you have slightest risk, do pregnancy test otherwise you can wait till the date of next period.

4 months time is not the sufficient time to get worried. Some times it takes longer to conceive naturally. So relax and not need to worry as of now. You need to keep trying. A consultation with gynaecologist should help. Please note that you can not predict a time frame and sometimes it takes time to conceive. Have patience and here are some tips which can help: tip #1: the biggest secret to getting pregnant faster is knowing when you ovulate (release an egg from your ovary). Think of the egg as a bull's-eye and the sperm as arrows. One of the arrows has to hit the bull's-eye in order for you to get pregnant. If you notice that you have irregular periods over the course of several months, pinpointing ovulation could be difficult. Ask your doctor for advice. Tip #2: once you know when your egg will be released from your ovary, you can plan to have sex during your most fertile days: from three days before ovulation through the day of ovulation. (starting a little sooner can't hurt; some women have gotten pregnant from sex that happened six days before they ovulated.) if you have a regular cycle of 28 days, days 12 to 16 days are said to be a woman's most fertile period counting from the first day of cycle. Tip #3: sperm have their best shot at fertilizing an egg when they're healthy, strong, and plentiful. Several things can help your partner get his sperm supply in fighting shape: - cut back on alcohol (studies show that drinking daily can reduce testosterone levels and sperm counts and raise the number of abnormal sperm) - quit tobacco and recreational drugs (these can cause poor sperm function) - eat enough of certain key nutrients like zinc, folic acid, calcium, and vitamins c and d, that help create plentiful, strong, wiggly sperm - avoid hot tubs, saunas, and hot baths, since heat kills sperm.

Elevated fsh isn't a cause, it's potentially a symptom indicating that your egg quality is poor or that you have diminished ovarian reserve, making it difficult to get pregnant. Many fertility clinics won't treat patients with fsh over 10. Many doctors believe that high fsh indicates that you would have a poor response to the fertility drugs required for ivf. Find a clinic that's" fsh friendly" and see what can be done although presently your fsh levels are very high to try to conceive------------
