Hello- I pill induces contraception by producing strong uterine contractions leading to heavy flow of uterine blood from vagina. I pill once use can disturb the next three menses, if repeated again will have a prolonged effect on menses.

I would advice analgesia like calpol and antibiotics to control the infection first. If it settles down and you don't have a recurring problem you can defer the root canal treatment till you have delivered.

It's better she gets it removed so that it won't come in her way of conception and once she conceives the fetus needs ample place in the uterus to grown healthy. Please follow the gynecologist advice in this regard.

What causes cramps during menstruation? What can I do about my painful periods? Please help.
Causes of cramps- infection, endometriosis, some tumours, physiological (that subsides after pregnancy), abnormalities in hormones and in blood vessels. What you can do- consult gynecologist to reach the diagnosis and treat the specific cause. At your age, most often the cramp subsides in time, after short term treatment.

Your age is 22, on the lower rungs of reproductive period. Every pregnancy is precious and in women with higher age near 30 plus it becomes more precious in primae gravida or other with bad obstetrical history. Any viral infection during pregnancy, especially measles and german measles carry high possibility of foetal anomalies hence abortion is considered as an option after doing anomaly scans at suitable ante natal time. In case you don't wish to keep the uncertainty of abnormal outcome, you may discuss it with spouse and take an informed decision.

I am facing unexplained infertility all test are normal .pls suggest me the right direction.
Dear lybrate-user, Unexplained infertility causes 30% of all cases of infertility. I would say have you checked your Vit D3 level, TSH level which should be less than 2.5.Our s prolactin should be within normal level. Take folic acid 5 mg per day. If your age is nearing 30 please take ovares SR 75 mg daily, start ecospirin 75 mg per day and have sex every second to third day. Good luck to you kiran.

If mother's blood group is negative and baby's blood group is positive then only injection is needed after the delivery. But that is not the case with u. 2 parents with rh + blood types can have a child with rh - blood type. A baby receives one gene from the father and one from the mother. If the father's genes are + - rh-positive (for a+ve), and the mother's are + - rh-positive (for b+ve), then baby can be: 1) + + rh-positive, 2) + - rh-positive and 3) - - rh-negative. So your child falls into 3rd option so it is definitely possible to have negative blood group with both parents positive blood group.

Yoga Vs. Gymming- Find Out What Works Best for You

Yoga Vs. Gymming- Find Out What Works Best for You
Yoga Vs. Gymming- Find Out What Works Best for You

The World Health Organisation recommends 150 minutes of any moderate physical activity per week for individuals aged between 18-64 years of age. Physical activities like yoga or gymming are high on the priority list of every health-conscious individual. Yoga may keep you younger, while gymming on the other hand, may help in keeping you stronger. Both these methods are loaded with equal benefits, which might make it tough for you to choose either one of them.

Read on to find out what works best for yourself.

1. If you want to lose weight…Hit the gym!

Intensive training or cardio-vascular exercises are particularly effective in shedding extra kilos as they keep your heart pumping fast, while also burning your calories. A single gymming session can be helpful in burning up to 3,500 calories in your body, which is equal to losing half a kilo of weight.
If you weigh 68-70kgs, a 30-minute yoga regime can help you burn about 85 calories, whereas if you perform a moderate-intensity exercise routine of 30 minutes on an elliptical trainer may end up burning up to 340 calories.

2. If you want to gain strength…Hit the gym!
Pull-up bars, barbells and other gym equipment are especially designed to build your physical strength. Gym training requires muscle contractions and stretching, and if you perform them regularly, your muscles contract more efficiently and for a longer time without injuring your tendons. This also helps in increasing your endurance and energy levels, while building stamina.

3. If you want to gain composure and balance…Practice yoga!
Yoga comprises of sets of meditative postures or asanas that can help in relaxing your tired muscles and mind. Unlike most exercise routines, yoga focuses more on achieving harmony of the mind, body and spirit rather than just giving you a fitter frame. Regular yoga practice can alter your body’s physical and emotional response to stress, anxiety, depression, and hypertension.

4. If you want to be flexible…Practice yoga!
Inflexibility in your muscles and connective tissues can cause poor posture in your body, resulting in various aches and pains. Yoga can increase your flexibility by loosening stiff muscles, which can eventually result in the disappearance of all bodily aches and pains. The contraction and stretching of muscles in yoga asanas help in improving the functions of your immune system as well. It also helps the lymphatic system of your body fight infections, destroy cancerous cells, and dispose of toxic waste products, thereby keeping you fit and healthy.
