This way doesn't lead to pregnancy. All men/women are different in their sexuality and health. You need to go for check up with sexologist to know the cause and get guidance/treatment for improvement. If you value your sexual/marital health and want to enjoy quality sex/health child birth in marriage then understanding and learning about sexuality/pregnancy is needed.

Hello I am mother of one child. My periods are irregular and I didn't gain my weight. My baby is feeding also. please help to gain my weight and regular periods.

Hello I am mother of one child. My periods are irregular and I didn't gain my weight. My baby is feeding also. please...
In majority of the cases irregular menses are accredited to hormonal imbalance, but in some cases it may be pathological and secondary to some pathology of ovaries mostly. Now if you want to regularized the menses then you must establish permanent balanced first and this can be achieved only with homoeopathy, because in modern medicine we get only a hormonal support with a very temporary relief. But with homoeopathy you can strike the hormonal balance permanently which later on also give you regular menses even if you stop the medicine.

  • Ulcers, IBS and Acidity: Regular consumption of Coffee( Caffeine and various acids present in Coffee) irritate the stomach & lining of small intestine which is necessary for H. pylori to take hold initially , due to that Helicobacter pylori bacteria causes Ulcers, gastritis, IBS and Crohn’s disease. It also irritate the lining of small intestine which leads to Abdominal spasm, cramps, and elimination problem due to that diarrhea and constipation occurs.

  • Heart burn problems: Caffeine in Coffee relax the Esophageal sphincter due to that stomach content come back in stomach and burn the delicate lining of esophagus by HCL thus contribute the Acid reflux and Heartburn

  • Coffee as a laxative: coffee stimulates peristalsis thus promote the gastric emptying , whereby the stomach’s contents are quickly passed into the small intestines , before digesting food which makes it difficult for nutrients to be absorbed from your food. It also increases the chances of irritation and inflammation within the gastrointestinal tract.

  • For pregnant women 200 mg. /day.

  • Ideally 1-2 cup of coffee /day has no associated negative effect but beneficial for people.

  • If associated with problem of stress a, tension, digestive problem it should be avoided.

 

What is the best time of consumption of coffee :

  • Morning 10 am to noon

  • Evening 2pm to 5pm

  • Early morning stress hormone “Cartisol” level in our body is very high and consuming caffeine when cortisol level are high creates two problems:

  • Caffeine interferes with the body’s production of cortisol which is released in response to stress and low glucose. The body ends up producing less cortisol and depends more on the caffeine to compensate.

  • It increases the person’s tolerance to caffeine because it replaces the natural cortisol – induced boost instead of adding to it.

Thus early morning is the worst time for coffee.

5 Common Causes of Hip Pain in Women

5 Common Causes of Hip Pain in Women

Your hip plays a very crucial role in the proper functioning of your body. It bears the weight of the entire upper body and also supports your back to maintain balance. The hip joint is a ball and socket joint that connects the pelvic region to the thighs. Some sort of injury on the hip joint/bones or a disease can cause pain in the hips. Also, women are more likely to suffer pain in the hips than men.

Here are some common causative factors of hip pain in women:

1. Arthritis - One of the most common causes of hip pain in women is Arthritis. As women grow older, the risk of suffering from arthritis increases. The ball and socket joint of the hip gradually degenerates with age. This wear and tear of the joint causes swelling and stiffness which results in pain.

2. Obesity - Excessive body weight results in excessive pressure on the hip joint. Due to the development of excessive pressure on the joint, an obese/overweight woman may experience pain on the hip joint.

3. Osteoporosis - Mostly found in older women, osteoporosis is a condition in which the density of the bones reduces. As a result of which, the hip joint becomes weak and is unable to withstand the weight of the entire upper body and gives rise to extreme pain.

4. Bursitis - A sac-like structure cushioning the muscles and bones around the hip joints, filled with some sort of fluid is known as bursae. The inflammation of bursae is a condition called bursitis, which results in extreme pain in the hip joint.

5. Gynecological issues - Pregnancy leads to excessive pressure on the hip joint due to weight gain and growth of the lining of the uterus, resulting in pelvic tenderness. Both of these factors induce a feeling of pain in the hip joint in a pregnant woman.

Hello doctor, today when I take bath, wearing my clothes, a mosquito enters into my clothes. But I do not care that time, now I am worried if mosquitoes blood or mosquito himself enter into my openings. Is it transmit hcv or hiv if mosquito is infected?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Mosquitoes do not inject blood when they bite. Only saliva is injected into humans when a mosquito bites and thus hiv positive blood that a mosquito may have previously ingested is never transmitted to other humans. As a result, mosquitoes do not transmit the virus like hiv or hcv. Hiv is unable to replicate within the mosquito's gut and therefore is broken down and thats why it can not reach its saliva. Also mosquito can not enter into any opening of our body as all of them are closed in natural position.
