you have still four weeks left for delivery.The fetus will take many movements in this time. Probably the position of fetus and cord would be normal. The normal fetal weight at the time of delivery should be 2.5-3.0 kg. Eat well, drink fluid frequently, do some light yoga and take appropriate rest. Best wishes

Hello- your wife symptoms suggest that she might be suffering from pcod and due to this she might be facing certain problems like, irregular menses, unwanted hair growth, weight gain. Pcod delay ovulation and hence it might affect her motherhood too. >don't go for allopathic treatment like metformin etc. As it will further increase your weight and will create a hormonal imbalance in her body. These cysts occur due to improper diet and schedule done specially during menstrual bleeding period. Try this safe and effective ayurvedic treatment- a) kuberaksha vati 1 tab twice. B) tab hyponidd 1 tab thrice c) fal sarpi 1 tsp twice before meals. D) go for basti panchakarma by your nearby ayurvedic doctor.

4 Common Mistakes That Are Killing Your Love Life!

4 Common Mistakes That Are Killing Your Love Life!

Daily habits have the power to leave you limp during or after intercourse. These habits can result in low libido and low desire to engage in intercourse with your partner. However, once you identify them, it is easier to rectify them.

Here are a few daily things which might leave you limp:

  1. Not nourishing your libido enough: One major reason of a depreciating sex drive can be attributed to low libido, which can be an outcome of poor dietary choices. Add more aphrodisiacs to your diet such as oysters, dark chocolates, bananas, strawberries and yogurt which are rich in zinc, magnesium and other minerals which help in increasing your sex drive.
  2. Over-masturbation: Engaging in self-stimulation too many times a day can result in fatigue and other health problems. The acceptable number of times a person should masturbate in a day is 2-3 times, however, if you engage in masturbation more than that, you can experience problems like a limp, flaccid penis and reduced sexual drive.
  3. Increase in insulin levels: Consuming too much sugar during the day can result in spiked insulin (blood sugar levels) in your body. This ends up making you feel more lethargic. It was recently discovered that in men, insulin raises ‘oestrogen’, leading to low libido and in graver cases, erectile dysfunction. Another study linked excess glucose or blood sugar with a dip in the levels of testosterone, thus, leaving you limp before/after intercourse.
  4. Stress: Though some amount of stress is considered normal, when the levels of distress go sky-rocketing, it might leave you limp as if affects your sexual performance. Instead of relieving stress, sex ends up feeling more like a liability which can result in you having problems getting an erection or getting an orgasm. Consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Lubricant creates problem in conception for very short time- only the sperms exposed to the lubricants are affected. No long term effect. Don't worry.

Your wife is negative means she does not have an antigen Rh. If your kid also is negative group you most likely will not have any problem. But if your child is positive like you, then your wife needs to be given rh antibodies to prevent sensitization. However ideally the first child will always be healthy.

Short Stature - Causes and Symptoms

Short Stature - Causes and Symptoms

The term short stature describes the height of the person that is significantly below the average height for a person's age, sex, racial group, or family. Growth failure is often confused with short stature. Growth failure that occurs over time eventually results in short stature. By definition, growth failure is a medical condition. However, short stature is often a normal variant.

Short stature may or may not be a sign or symptom caused by a medical condition. Your child's growth must be assessed over a period of time and not just at a single point.  Any departure from a prior growth pattern, appropriate for the child's genetic background may signal the appearance of a disease.

Symptoms

Short parents tend to have short children. Children with a family backgroud of short stature does not have any symptoms related to diseases that affect growth.  Children with constitutional growth delay do not have any diseases. These children enter puberty later than their peers. However, because they continue to grow for a longer period of time, they catch up to their peers as they reach their adult height, which is normal and comparable to their parents.

Some symptoms may signal a medical condition causing short stature. The following symptoms should be further investigated by your doctor:

  1. Child has stopped growing or is growing slower than expected (less than 4 cm, or 2 in, each year in the pre-pubertal child of elementary school age)
  2. Weight loss or gain (more than 5 lbs in a month)
  3. Poor nutrition/loss of appetite
  4. Delayed puberty (absent breast development by age 14 or absent menstrual spotting by age 15 for a girl or absent enlargement of the testes by age 14 for a boy); note that the presence or absence of pubic hair is not a reliable sign of pubertal development

What Causes Short Stature?

The three major reasons for short stature are constitutional growth delay, genetics and disease.

Constitutional Growth Delay: Some children simply develop later than others. These children are often referred to as 'late bloomers'. These kids are small for their age and often enter puberty later. However, they'll continue to grow after their friends have stopped. They usually catch up by adulthood.

Genetics: If one or both parents are short, there's a strong possibility that their child will also be short. If there are no underlying medical reasons why either parent is short, their child's short stature may be perfectly healthy.

Disease: A number of diseases may cause unusually short stature. These diseases fall into several categories:

  1. Endocrine diseases affect hormone production and often height. These include growth hormone deficiency (GHD), hypothyroidism, or low thyroid hormone levels, and Cushing's disease.
  2. Chronic diseases can also decrease height through their effects on overall health. Examples of chronic disease are heart disease, asthma, inflammatory bowel disease, diabetes, kidney problems, sickle cell anemia, and juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.
  3. Genetic conditions that affect height include Down syndrome, Turner syndrome, and Williams syndrome.
  4. Bone and skeletal diseases, such as rickets or achondroplasia, may change stature through their effects on bone growth.

Problems during pregnancy can affect the height of a child. Malnutrition can also lead to short stature.

When a baby girl comes out of womb of mother, it gets withdrawal from abundant amount of oestrogen running in blood. So she may have bleed just like menses. So no need to worry. It is very normal. In spite, it proves your baby's genitourinary system is normal and responding.

Sugarless Foods: Are They Really?

M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
Sugarless Foods: Are They Really?

Are the foods marketed actually sugar free? Does no added sugar mean that it is zero calorie? Have you ever thought if some ingredient is missing, some component needs to be substituted in its place? These are some of the few questions that needs to be answered before you jump onto buy the sugarless stuffs.

  1. Check for the ingredients added in the foodstuff like sucralose, high fructose corn syrup,molasses etc. These are the  other names given to sugar to misguide the customer.
  2. Watch out if the base raw material itself is high in sugar like refined flour/maida, dryfruits like figs/anjeer, dates. Though dry fruits are definetely a better substitute to sugars, but cannot be categorised as sugarless.
  3. Check for the addition of fats and oils like refined fat/ hydrogenated fat. Though this may not affect the sugars immediately but definetely harmful if you have high cholesterol levels.

So, next time just donot bounce on the sugarless foods but do a mindful eating with regards to how much you are eating.

MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Hormonal Imbalance In Men And Women!

Hormones are important messengers that play a pivotal role in the proper functioning of your body. Any imbalance in the hormonal level can throw life in jeopardy. Hormonal imbalance can affect a person physically, mentally as well as emotionally. In the present competitive world, with so much stress and anxiety, hormonal imbalance is on the rise. It can affect both men and women.

Factors responsible for hormonal imbalance in men and women

Many factors, either individually or collectively can affect and disrupt the hormonal balance in a person. The most common factors triggering a hormonal imbalance include

  1. Physical, mental and emotional stress.
  2. Menopause (in women) and Andropause (in men).
  3. Drugs and alcohol abuse.
  4. Unhealthy eating habits, leading to inflammation.
  5. Lack of any physical activity.
  6. Obesity, Type-2 Diabetes.
  7. The Endocrine gland does not function properly (due to an injury or an infection or old age). Hormonal imbalance may be age related. Certain chemicals (Diethylstilbestrol, DDT, Polychlorinated Biphenyls, Dioxin) also have the potential to disrupt the Endocrine function.

Symptoms of Hormonal Imbalance:
Some of the characteristic symptoms of hormonal imbalance include

  1. A sudden change in body weight (weight gain or weight loss).
  2. Anxiety, depression, and mood swings.
  3. Hair loss followed by thinning of hair.
  4. Irregular menses.
  5. Infertility.
  6. Erectile dysfunction.
  7. The appetite undergoes a change.
  8. A person may face digestive problems.
  9. Insomnia and extreme fatigue.
  10. Decreased libido.

Treatment:
Doctors may adopt any of the following treatments for hormonal imbalance

  1. Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT): This treatment helps women to deal with menopause better. During and after menopause, the levels of estrogen and progesterone, particularly, go for a toss. This therapy aims at maintaining the hormonal balance by replacing the hormones your body either fails to produce or synthesizes in very little quantity.
  2. Following a healthy lifestyle go a long way in improving the hormonal imbalance.
  3. Exercise regularly. Meditation, breathing exercise, cycling, morning and evening walks are great stress busters.
  4. Follow a healthy sleeping routine.
  5. Limit your alcohol and caffeine intake. Refrain from smoking.
  6. Avoid taking birth control pills.
  7. Maintain a healthy body weight.
  8. Include avocados, egg yolk, gelatin, carrots, coconut oil into your diet.
  9. People with hormonal imbalance can benefit from Omega-3 fatty. Walnuts, chia seeds, flax seeds, olive oil are a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids.
  10. Ayurveda and herbal medicines have helped many people with hormonal imbalance.
  11. Some medications may help to improve hormonal imbalance (strictly on doctor recommendation).
  12. In extreme cases, surgery may be recommended.

Health risks associated with hormonal imbalance:
Hormonal imbalance can have adverse effect on the health resulting in

  1. PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome): PCOS is characterized by irregular menses, infertility, hirsutism, hair fall, acne and weight gain. Women of reproductive age are mainly affected by PCOS.
  2. Low libido, tiredness, weight gain, erectile dysfunction, mood swings, and irritability (due to low level of testosterone hormone)
  3. Thyroid problems (Hyperthyroidism, Hypothyroidism and Grave's disease).
  4. Hormonal imbalance may also cause Diabetes and Adrenal failure.
  5. Irregular periods, mood swings, infertility, decreased sexual desire (low levels of estrogen hormone).

Avocados

Avocados

Avocados may be fatty, but that doesn't mean they are bad for your health.
In fact, this fruit is a nutritional powerhouse providing numerous potential health benefits. Its creamy texture and rich taste make it a common ingredient in many dishes. It is most well known for being a key ingredient in the Mexican dip 'guacamole'. Because of its high fat content, avocado is also used as a meat substitute in sandwiches and salads. But what makes this fruit so good for you? it is an excellent source of potassium, containing more per weight than bananas. In addition, avocados are rich in vitamin k, vitamin b, vitamin c and vitamin e. They are rich in phytochemicals, which have been reported to help prevent the development of certain cancers. Fats account for around three-quarters of the calorie count of an avocado. Most of it are monounsaturated fat, in the form of oleic acid. Monounsaturated fat is considered to be a 'good fat' which reduces levels of bad cholesterol in your blood and lowers the risk of stroke and heart disease. Keeping cholesterol levels in check is vital for diabetics as they have a much higher risk of cardiovascular disease. The high levels of potassium in avocados is another important nutritional factor for diabetics due to its role in maintaining a healthy heart and regulating blood sugar. Having monounsaturated fats in a diabetic diet is also beneficial for reducing high triglyceride levels and thus improves insulin function and blood glucose levels. All in all, avocado is a very healthy food for those living with diabetes and for people who wish to lower their risk of developing the disease.'
