Dear Lybrate user, Pregnancy had occurred and perhaps was abnormal. However, it is difficult to comment on the actual event. In case there are no symptoms, no action needs to be taken. One can repeat the test after few days.

8 Ways 'All Work and No Play' Messes Up with Your Health!

MBBS, MD - Medicine, POST GRADUATE CLINICAL COURSE IN DIABETES MANAGEMENT

8 Ways 'All Work and No Play' Messes Up with Your Health!

8 ways 'all work and no play' messes up with your health!

Failure to strike a healthy work-life balance can see your health going on the downswing. Several studies have time and again highlighted the fact that working too much can be bad for you. The major factor that is at play when you work too much is stress, which negatively impacts both your mental and physical well-being. A joint study conducted by Stanford university and Harvard business school has revealed that workplace stress can ruin your physical health by as much as 90%.

Read on to find out the ill-effects of all work and no play.

1. Working overtime can increase your risk of developing cardiovascular problems by about 60%.

2. While working too much can see your risk of experiencing a heart attack rise by about 13%, over 55 hours of work time every week can increase your chances of getting a stroke by about 33%.

3. Consistently working overtime can lead you to face mental health problems.

4. Over-working can cause your learning ability and memory power to fail as you don't get the required amount of rest time.

5. Working for over 11 hours a day can increase your chances of suffering from depression.

6. Working for over 40 hours a week can increase your risk of gaining weight, and indulging in alcohol and tobacco abuse.

7. Working for over 50 hours a week can bring about a reduction in your sleep time to less than 6 hours a day, which can have an adverse impact on your work performance.

8. Working non-stop in front of the computer can cause you to become prone to headaches and blurred vision.

Here's how you can prevent the negative effects of working too much from impacting your health:

1. Take a short trip

Being physically away from your workplace and going on short vacations can help your health considerably as it reduces work-related stress to a great extent. It also helps in the rejuvenation of your mind and body, thereby improving your overall health.

2. Meditate for a calmer self

Meditation is another helpful way in which you can cut down the harm that too much work can have on your body. Spend a few moments each day to de-stress and calm your agitated mind.

3. Don't bring work home

Once you're at home, avoid the impulse of checking your phone or email for work. Furthermore, avoid bringing your smartphone with you to the dinner table and don't discuss work while eating.

4. Go for regular checkups

Visiting a doctor regularly is another preventive measure that you need to take very seriously. Screening tests for stroke, heart disease or high blood pressure should be undertaken from time to time so as to prevent yourself from falling prey to such problems.

Despite your heavy workload, you still need to take out time for yourself. It is imperative that you do so in order to create a better work-life balance and consequently, a healthier self.

How can I get aware from hiv. Is it harmful to do sex without condom? Please guide me

MBBS
General Physician, Chennai
Of course you can get hiv if you have unprotected sex with strangers and if you are having only with your wife then no need of protection too but make sure you are not planning for a baby then it's mandatory to have protected sex.

It is fine. One of the best ways to improve your health is cardiovascular exercise. Sex might get your heart rate up, but regular exercise can help your sexual performance by keeping your heart in shape. Certain foods can also help you increase blood flow. These foods include: onions and garlic: These foods may not be great for your breath, but they can help your blood circulation. bananas: This potassium-rich fruit can help lower your blood pressure, which can benefit your important sexual parts and boost sexual performance. chilies and peppers: All-natural spicy foods help your blood flow by reducing hypertension and inflammation. Oats (as well as seeds, ginseng, nuts, dairy, and green vegetables) contain L-arginine, an amino acid that enhances the effect nitric oxide has on reducing blood vessel stiffness.

Hi I am taking Novelon 21 day pill from june. Missed second last doubled with the last, break of 6 days from 2-7 july. Menses from 5-7july. New pack from 8th july. Protected intercourse but condom used thrice on 9th july (first timw intercourse) Next fully protected on 14th july (last intercourse) Missed 21st july pill doubled 22nd july night. Light bleeding on 22nd july morning (breakthrough bleed or implantation bleed?) Pill ended on 28th july menses from 1-6 aug. Negative hpt at 4,5,6,7,8,11,12 weeks all negative hpt done with first morning urine with different brands. No pills or intercourse after 1-6aug. Periods due on 1st sept as it dint came did a usg and hcg beta on 8th sept (10 weeks from first and 9 weeks from last intercourse) Hcg was 0.11 and usg shows pcod (no mention of pregnancy) Dr. Prescribed deviry 2 tab for 5 days for withdrawal bleed. But after taking just a single dose bleeding started from 11-16th sept. It was heavy. On 21st sept morning when I woke up I can feel my pelvic bone in the front (can it be due to exercises like crunches leg rise etc with weight loss? I was 72 in july 70 in aug and now I am almost 68 kgs) and after continuous touching I made it hurt. Scared went for usg on 21st sept (12 weeks ftom first and 11 weeks from lasr intercourse) Usg only showed bulky ovaries with pcod. I asked him if my uterus was normal he said its absolutely normal. Usg was transabdominal Have taken an hpt with first morning urine at almost 12 weeks 6 days. And its negative. Can their still be risk of pregnancy? My menses was due on 11th october and it is now delayed by 7 days. I did not have any intercourse after 14th july. M not experiencing any pms symptoms Is their any risk of pregnancy? Do I need to redo hpt or BHCG test? M I 100% safe from pregnancy? Can BHCG be wrong after 2 months and was 11-16sept my natural period? M having shortness of breath too. Is this due to stress or is it pregnancy related?

lybrate-user, do not panic at all. Every problem has a solution. So please do not over stress. You said your usg showed PCOD picture. This is one of the main reasons for your irregular menses. Beta hcg values in case of pregnancy increase exponentially. Just out of fear no need to immediately do BHCG. Urine pregnancy test comes positive after 4-6 weeks of last period. So do not be worried. For PCOD, you need lifestyle modification which consists of proper diet, exercise and stress free life. This will regularise your menstruation. You need other few tests as well to rule out other conditions.

Is it possible that during first intercourse the vaginal seal don't break and if soo then what are the reasons and when we will come to know? Thank you nd regards.

MBBS
General Physician, Chandigarh
Its called hymen which is a thin membranous tissue surrounding the vaginal opening it does break during first penetration sometimes accompanied by some bleeding but if the memrane is too lax it may not bleed also there are no fixed sighns to show whether it is there or not except for the physical checkup otherwise if penetration is not painful and it's eady then it means it's not there.
