There are few tips through which the pain may subside -: 1. Do regular exercise. It may sound crazy but this does help in reduce the menstrual pain. 2. Apply heat pack, as warmth of it reduces pain. 3. You may have orgasm. This may be socially and morally incorrect but it does relaxes nerves and blood vessels. 4. You may have green tea or chamomile tea as they both have positive effects on you menstrual cycle and pain. You may also go for an ultrasound as to confirm if there is any pathology or not.

Why you want to hide it from your doctor. You should yourself tell the facts to your doctor. If she is saying something to you, it is in your interest. You should never hide anything from your doctor.

Sleep Hygiene Tips!

Sleep Hygiene Tips!

Sleep hygiene tips:

  1. Getting good sleep is important in maintaining health. There are several things that you can do to promote good sleep.
  2. Sleep hygiene help promote good sleep using behavioral interventions.

Sleep hygiene tips:

  1. Maintain a regular sleep routine
  2. Go to bed at the same time. Wake up at the same time. Ideally, your schedule will remain the same (+/- 20 minutes) every night of the week.
  3. Avoid naps if possible.
  4. Naps decrease the ‘sleep debt’ that is so necessary for easy sleep onset. Each of us needs a certain amount of sleep per 24-hour period. We need that amount, and we don’t need more than that. When we take naps, it decreases the amount of sleep that we need the next night – which may cause sleep fragmentation and difficulty initiating sleep, and may lead to insomnia.
  5. Don’t stay in bed awake for more than 5-10 minutes.

If you find your mind racing, or worrying about not being able to sleep during the middle of the night, get out of bed, and sit in a chair in the dark. Do your mind racing in the chair until you are sleepy, then return to bed. No tv or internet during these periods! that will just stimulate you more than desired. If this happens several times during the night, that is ok. Just maintain your regular wake time, and try to avoid naps.

  1. Don’t watch tv or read in bed.
  2. When you watch tv or read in bed, you associate the bed with wakefulness.
  3. Drink caffeinated drinks with caution
  4. The effects of caffeine may last for several hours after ingestion. Caffeine can fragment sleep, and cause difficulty initiating sleep. If you drink caffeine, use it only before noon. Remember that soda and tea contain caffeine as well.
  5. Avoid inappropriate substances that interfere with sleep
  6. Cigarettes, alcohol, and over-the-counter medications may cause fragmented sleep.
  7. Exercise regularly
  8. Exercise before 2 pm every day. Exercise promotes continuous sleep. Avoid rigorous exercise before bedtime. Rigorous exercise circulates endorphins into the body which may cause difficulty initiating sleep.
  9. Have a quiet, comfortable bedroom

Set your bedroom thermostat at a comfortable temperature. Generally, a little cooler is better than a little warmer. Turn off the tv and other extraneous noise that may disrupt sleep. Background ‘white noise’ like a fan is ok. If your pets awaken you, keep them outside the bedroom. Your bedroom should be dark. Turn off bright lights. Have a comfortable mattress.

  1. If you are a ‘clock watcher’ at night, hide the clock.
  2. Have a comfortable pre-bedtime routine
  3. A warm bath, shower, meditation.

Some who are struggling with sleep regularly find it helpful to print out these recommendations and read them reularly. If you accidentally miss some of recommendations, or have a bad night, do not fret. By following these sleep hygiene recommendations, you will help yourself to get into a routine that promotes good sleep opportunities.

Know Your Back or Lumbar Spine

Know Your Back or Lumbar Spine

If we look at the human backbone or spine , we can see that the  vertebrae rest upon one another similarly to a stack of cotton spools .

 The spine is divided into regions. There are seven vertebrae in the cervical region (neck), twelve vertebrae in the thoracic region (upper back), and five vertebrae in the lumbar region (lower back) ..

Beneath the lumbar vertebrae are found the sacrum and the coccyx. It is the lower back or lumbar and sacral regions that concern us most.

Each vertebra has a solid part in front, the vertebral body, and a hole in the back .When lined up as in the spinal column, these holes form the spinal canal. This canal serves as a protected passageway for the bundle of nerves which extends from head to pelvis-the spinal .Special cartilages, called the discs, separate the vertebrae. The discs are located between the vertebral bodies just in front of the spinal cord . Each disc consists of a soft semi-fluid centre part, the nucleus, which is surrounded and held together by a cartilage ring, the annulus or annular ligament.  The discs are similar to rubber washers and act as shock absorbers.  

The are able to alter their shape, thus allowing movement of one vertebra on another and of the back as a whole.The vertebrae and discs are linked by a series of joints to form the lumbar spine or low back. Each joint is held together by its surrounding soft tissues-that is, a capsule reinforced by ligaments.Ligaments can be likened to the stays that hold a mast in place on a sailing ship. If a stay were to give way, the mast will likely fall when subjected to extra strains.

Muscles lie over one or more joints of the low back and may extend upward to the trunk and downward to the pelvis. At both ends each muscle changes into a tendon by which it attaches itself to different bones. 

When a muscle contracts, it causes movement in one or more joints.Between each two vertebrae there is a small opening on either side through which a nerve leaves the spinal canal, the right and left spinal nerve . Amongst other tasks, the spinal nerves supply our muscles with power and our skin with sensation. In other words, it is through the nerves that we can move ourselves and feel temperature, pressure and pain. The nerves are really part of our alarm system: pain is the warning that some structure is about to be damaged or has already sustained some damage.In the lower part of the spine some of these nerves combine on each side to form the right and left sciatic nerves. The sciatic nerves service our legs, and when compressed or irritated, they may cause pain in the leg which often extends below the knee. This is then called sciatica.

FUNCTIONS OF THE LUMBAR SPINE

In animals that walk on all fours, the weight of their body is distributed evenly by DISC their four legs. Most of the time the spine is held in aIl more or less horizontal position and the compressive forces that exist in upright man do not occur.

In human beings, the spine is held in a more or vertical position, at least during waking and working hours. When we are upright, , lumbar spine bears the compressive weight of the body above it transmits this weight to the pelvis when sitting and to the feet when  standing, walking and running. Thus the lumbar spine, providing  flexible connection between the upper and lower half of the body protects the spinal cord and also has a greater function in weight  bearing. In the evolution of the horizontal-spine posture of animals to the vertical-spine posture of man, the discs between the vertebrae have adapted to support heavier weights. In addition, the  spinal column has developed a series of curves that ingeniously allow for better shock absorption and flexibility.

I am 27 years old married lady. I have a left tubal blockage as well, and it's incredibly frustrating. I tried doing IUI's but had several cancellations in a row due to the eggs always being on the wrong side. I want to know is the egg always release alternative side each cycle?

Not necessarily. However if one of your tubes is blocked it is important that you undergo surgery to open the blockage.
