Go for a Ultrasound uterus, CBC and a Thyroid profile. And get back with the results - 1.problems in ovary or uterus can cause irregular periods and hence a scan is necessary to identify that 2. Sudden Weight gain or loss can also cause irregular periods 3. Hormonal imbalance thyroid can cause irregularity too. 4. Low hemoglobin is a common cause for irregularity of [period in Indian women So it is best you get the basic tests done and then consult a fertility expert.

When to use and how to use the contraceptive pill I pill or unwanted 72 to prevent pregnancy and for how many days it has to use whether daily or only once after unprotected sex?

Unwanted 72 is a one time emergency pill to be taken within 72 hrs of unprotected sex, it prevents pregnancy but can cause irregular peroods. So a better way of protection is to take low dose combination pills throughout 25 days of month which is safer and causes regular periods

Nasya Treatment

BAMS
Ayurveda, Navi Mumbai
Nasya Treatment

Unlike the allopathic form of treatment, ayurveda contains more than a few tablets and capsules. Ayurveda is a way of life that looks into what you eat, how you breathe, your exercise regimen etc. According to the ayurvedic texts, the air you breathe and the condition of your nasal passage through which air enters your body has a big impact on your health.

Nasya is the ayurvedic practice of lubricating your nasal passages. This not only keeps the nasal passages and sinuses clear but is also beneficial for the cervical lymph which maintains the immunity (learn more to improve the immunity system) of the ear, nose and throat. Nasya is especially beneficial in the winter months and can be practiced by both children and adults.

Some of the other benefits of nasya are:

  • It promotes hair growth
  • It enhances the functioning of sense organs
  • It boosts immunity
  • It shows down the aging process.

Nasya is best practiced after neti or the ayurvedic nasal cleaning procedure. After the debris in the nasal passages has been cleaned by neti, allow the passages to air dry for a while. You will need specialized herbal oil also known as nasya oil. You can buy this online or at any ayurvedic chemist. some of the common herbs used in nasya oil are pippali, apamarg, vidanga, vacha, saindhava and hingu.

Nasya can be varied by the type of oil used and the amount of oil used. Some common types of nasya include Virechana nasya, Pratimarsha nasya, Avapeedana and Dhooma Nasya. the optimal time to practice nasya also varies according to the disease or condition being treated. the best time to practice nasya to relieve Kapha disorders is in the morning. Practicing nasya in the afternoons is beneficial for pitta related problems and practicing this in the evening can help treat vata disorders.

To practice nasya, lie down on your back and tip your head backwards. Put a few drops of the oil in your nose and inhale sharply. You should be able to feel the oil hit the back of your throat. When practicing nasya on a child, use minimal oil. You could also dab the oil on with a cotton swab as their nasal passages are very delicate.

Nasya can also be performed by blowing dry powders into the nose rather than oil. This is known as pradhamana nasya. This is used to treat a number of diseases including cervical lymph adenitis, tumors, epilepsy, drowsiness, certain skin diseases, sinusitis and headaches.

How to prevent lifestyle diseases?

PDDM, MHA, MBBS

How to prevent lifestyle diseases?
How to prevent lifestyle diseases?

In the olden days, we had food scarcity and too much physical work. So obesity and lifestyle diseases were less among people. In those times people used to eat heavily when more food was available and eat less when no food was available. 

Then came the agricultural revolution era and a smart public distribution system. Food become abundant. It became impossible to change our centuries' old habit and we started eating more.

Then came industrial, it developments and opening up of markets. It created the following things:

Less physical work. Too much mental strain. Odd working hours. Availability of cheap tasty junk foods.

All these started leading to lifestyle diseases like obesity, hypertension and diabetes. 

Then came the medical era (the current period), when the incidences of the above said diseases started growing out of proportions. Nowadays we have started realizing that 

We are over eating. We are eating junk calories, food with high fat and salt content. We are leading a sedentary lifestyle.

We have started seeing our parents, relatives, friends getting these diseases, and we have come to know that there is no escape, since they too lead a similar lifestyle. This is the awareness era. Now availability of resources like internet and health magazines are changing people's mind to lead a healthy and fit life.

How to lead a healthy lifestyle and avoid lifestyle diseases?

Stop smoking, reduce alcohol consumption to once a week (two drinks only, it is better if avoid alcohol. Control your existing illnesses like diabetes and hypertension by dedicated dieting and regular consultation with your physician.
Physical activity: 40 minutes a day, minimum 5 days a week. Stop junk foods completely, reduce sugar, salt and oil consumption.
Sleep well (5-8 hours). Everybody has a different biological clock. A refreshing night's sleep varies from person to person. For some 5 hours is enough, for some they need 8 hours. Find out which person you are and start sleeping for the correct time.

No chances of getting pregnant if sex was 4 days before periods. It may be due to sex on some other day when chances of pregnancy are high. How many days she skept her periods?

DGO, MBBS
Sexologist,
First do urine pregnancy test, if negative , do her blood sugar fasting level, TSH , Prolactin, FSH, Testosterone, Hb, TC, DC levels, ultrasound of pelvis, if want pregnancy then your semen analysis. If all these are normal then HSG x-ray to see the tubes. Without reports no advice is proper.

Hi, me and my girlfriend did unprotected sex on 6th February at afternoon 12.30 like that. She is a virgin. We tried for Intercourse for three times not even more than 15 seconds because as she is virgin she is getting huge pain when I inserted my part into her vagina. Moreover as its hurting her I not even inserted my male organ completely into her vagina, only half of it and not more than that, and also its not even more than 15 seconds each time and I removed my organ from her vagina as she says it hurts a lot. I not even rubbed to and fro in her vagina and also I already mentioned I inserted only half of my organ into her vagina in all the three times. And as it only 15 seconds and I not even rubbed to and fro there no chance of ejaculation inside her vagina. And to mention I didn't ejaculate or cum inside her. Moreover it is no possible in 15 seconds span of time, in all the three times the same repeated. After the third time I haven't tried again as she is experiencing a lot of pain. Nothing happened after that. At that time I don't know exactly whether my precum existed or not because I thought that it will not cause any pregnancy. But while going through on the next day (i.e.7th February) I found that precum may also contain a small amount of sperm which also cause pregnancy if they are alive. I don't no if there existed precum during Intercourse. Moreover I washed all my bud and shaft with soap when I was bathing before Intercourse. But I'm not sure the precum existed or not during Intercourse or even if it existed I don't know if it contained a small amount of sperm content. Thats why after reading the article in Google the next day (i.e.on 7th February) I was so scared that she may become pregnant. So I said her to take an ipill in less than 24 hrs (i.e before 12 pm of 7th February). She took the pill between 11.30 to 12.15 on 7th February afternoon i.e.exactly after 22-23 hrs after our Intercourse (i remind you again that I didn't ejaculate or cum inside her vagina and what I did I explained clearly at the top of my query. And also ro mention you one thing that she do not have a regular periodic cycle of periods. It varies each time. Her last date was 26th January and it was a 22 day day period. Now I'm also afraid that when her ovulation took place and is it the date of our Intercourse (i.e 6th February) eventhought I didn't cum inside her I'm afraid of precum if it contains any sperm that she may be pregnant. She took an ipill in less than 24 hrs. 1) Will it work or she can be pregnant if it was exactly her ovulation date even she took an emergency contraceptive pill? 2) she may be become pregnant even with my precum without ejaculation inside her?  3) what will be her ovulation date if her date was 26th January and it is a 22 day period, will it be 6th February or even the day after or day before 6th February?  4) will the pill work for all those cases?  (note: she is experiencing a vaginal dryness from 6th February till today, is it any symptom for anything or its just the pills side effect?)  Whatever may be the case please tell whether she is going to been pregnant or not?  Please help me sir by replying fast, because I'm sooo scared?

Yes she can get pregnant, as sperm stays alive for a week inside a female genital tract, still would advise now to wait for the due date and if she misses her period, do a Urine pregnancy test to confirm pregnancy.

6 Do's and Don'ts of Healthy Eating Habits

B.Sc.(Hons), P.G.Dietetics
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Gurgaon
6 Do's and Don'ts of Healthy Eating Habits

6 do's and don'ts of healthy eating habits

Do's

1. Try to eat more unprocessed foods


Use fresh ingredients like vegetables, eggs, milk, lean meat etc to prepare your meals in and try to avoid consumption of processed food as far as possible. In most cases, processed food items are loaded with preservatives, added chemical substances, sweeteners, fats and artificial colours, which should be avoided to maintain good health. Also, make sure to include lots of fresh fruits, nuts and legumes in your daily diet instead of fruit juices, instant noodles or frozen food items.

2. Include whole grains in your diet

Whole grains have a lesser glycemic index (figure that measures the ability of carbohydrates to increase glucose in your blood), which makes them a healthy food option. Whole grains keep you full for long hours while providing you with energy to concentrate at work throughout the day. When it comes to taste, the flavour and nuttiness of whole grains are superior to refined ones. So, prefer wholegrain bread, pasta or brown rice when choosing your food items.

3. Monitor your serving sizes

Monitoring the amount of what you eat is important as it helps you to limit your intake of unhealthy food. Also, ensure that the amount of food you eat for dinner is lesser than that of your lunch. Ideally, for lunch, you should ensure that half your meal consists of salad or vegetables and the other half should contain lean proteins and low-gi or whole grain carbs in equal amounts.

Don'ts

1. Skip breakfast

Breakfast is considered to be the most significant meal of the day. Make it a habit to have breakfast every day as skipping this meal can adversely affect your health by causing obesity, irritated mood, and headaches while increasing your risks of getting hypoglycaemia (deficiency of glucose in your bloodstream).

2. Eat excessively saturated fat

Try to minimise your intake of food containing saturated fats as this can lead to the accumulation of weight in different parts of your body. Instead of consuming, huge amounts of milk, cheese, butter, bacon, meat etc. Switch to low-fat substitutes like white-meat chicken, reduced-fat dairy products, soy versions of traditional meat etc.

3. Give up your entire diet plan for a small mistake

If you happen to make only one dieting mistake, don't feel disappointed and start munching on unhealthy or junk food. Just remember that eating large amounts of unhealthy food can nullify all the effects of healthy eating you have experienced so far.
