U r most probably suffering from pcod, which can be diagnosed with ultrasound and hormonal tests like fsh and lh, tsh and prolactin. Mainstay of your treatment would be weight control which is achieved by diet and exercise. 3 months course of medicine will bring your menses back to normal.

Which days in a month are safe for doing sex without condoms ? Which days are risky for pregnancy ?

M.A. (Scholar), BHMS
Sexologist, Mumbai
Which days in a month are safe for doing sex without condoms ? Which days are risky for pregnancy ?
If woman's periods are very regular, she is tentatively ovulating on the fourteenth day prior to the next expected date of cycle. And 5 days before and after. Total 10 days. Are the most fertile days. Nevertheless please do not depend on these natural methods. Pills or condom or copper t (if she has delivered earlier) are better means. Consult together an expert for specific guidance.

There is no home remedy for opening the blockage of tube. You can go for laparoscopy procedure to open the tubes, but still it is not 100% sure that the blockage can be opened. But since your one tube is fine you can conceive with one tube also.

7 Incredible Cashew Nut Benefits: From Heart Health to Gorgeous Hair

7 Incredible Cashew Nut Benefits: From Heart Health to Gorgeous Hair

1. Heart Health

The National Centre for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) in its case study points out that nuts are likely to be beneficial for health, keeping a check on various ailments, such as heart disease. Studies consistently show that nut intake has a cholesterol-lowering effect, in the context of healthy diets, and there is emerging evidence of beneficial effects on oxidative stress, inflammation, and vascular reactivity. Cashews help lower LDL and increase the carrying capacity for HDL. HDL is responsible to absorb the cholesterol from the heart and take it to the liver where it can be broken down.

In 2003, the Food and Drug Administration had stated that a fistful of nuts a day as part of a low-fat diet may reduce the risk of heart disease. The heart association recommends four servings of unsalted, unoiled nuts a week and warns against eating too many, since they are dense in calories. Another study, published in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM), also establishes a significant association between the consumption of nuts and a lower incidence of death due to heart diseases, cancer and respiratory diseases. The study stated that nutrients in nuts, such as unsaturated fatty acids, protein, fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants may confer heart-protective, anti-carcinogenic and anti-inflammatory properties.

2. Prevents Blood Disease

The consumption of cashews on a regular basis and limited manner may help in avoiding blood diseases. Cashew nuts are rich in copper, which plays an important role in the elimination of free radicals from the body. Copper deficiency can lead to iron deficiencies such as anemia. Hence our diet should contain recommended quantity of copper. And cashew nuts are a good source.

3. Protects the Eye

In the urban environment matched with its excessive pollution, our eyes often suffer from various infections. Cashews contains a powerful antioxidant pigment called Zea Xanthin. This pigment is readily and directly absorbed by our retina, says nutritionist Anju Sood. This then forms a protective layer over our retina which prevents the harmful UV rays. Dr Anshul Jaibahrat Bhatnagar says small quantities of Zea Xanthin helps prevent age related macular degeneration in elderly and hence helps maintain eyehealth.

Highlights

The nut and the fruit, both have multiple uses
Cashew nuts are rich in copper, zinc, magnesium, iron and phosphorous
Cashews help lower LDL and increase the carrying capacity for HDL

7 Incredible Cashew Nut Benefits: From Heart Health to Gorgeous Hair

A popular ingredient finding its way into many Indian gravies, cashew - a plant originating from Brazil, is a nut high in minerals. Brought to India by traders, the cashew tree grows up to exceptional heights having a rather irregular trunk. Hanging from the branches are large juicy apples at the bottom of which are attached the cashew nut. Made available round the year, the nut has a great shelf life if stored properly.

(Buttery and Organic Cashews, Only One Click Away)

The nut and the fruit, both have multiple uses. The nut, often known as the poor man s plantation although now it is sold for steep prices, is used to make delectable and rich curries and also roasted and eaten dry. Back when nomads had no idea how to consume the fruit, the nut was discarded while the fruit was given more importance. A book written by SP Malhotra, World Edible Nuts Economy, points out, "Natives also knew of many medicinal uses for the apple juice, bark and caustic seed oil that were later exploited by the Europeans. 

Contrary to the popular belief that it can make you gain fat, a considerable amount of cashews in your diet can provide you with many health benefits -

Dr Anshul Jaibahrat Bhatnagar says small quantities of Zea Xanthin helps prevent age related macular degeneration in elderly and hence helps maintain eyehealth.


4. Good for the Skin

Derived from the cashew seeds,  cashew oil does wonders for your skin,  says Gargi Sharma, Manager Weight Management, Aayna. Cashew nut oil is rich in selenium, zinc, magnesium, iron and phosphorous. Also, they are great sources of phytochemicals, proteins and antioxidants. The high percentage of selenium in cashews is not only good for your skin but  helps prevent cancer as well,  says nutritionist Anju Sood. 

5. Weight Loss

In comparison to diets excluding the intake of nuts, people consuming nuts on a moderate and regular basis lose weight faster. Based on the evidence from epidemiological and controlled clinical studies, nut consumption is not associated with higher body weight. The study done by the Journal of Nutrition states that the epidemiological evidence indicates consistently that nut consumers have a lower BMI than non-consumers. With respect to clinical studies, the evidence is nearly uniform that their inclusion in the diet leads to little or no weight gain. Moreover, nuts like cashews are  packed with Omega 3 fatty acids that contribute to giving a boost to the metabolic process to burn excess fat,  says Delhi-based nutritionist Shilpa Arora. Nuts are a great snack for those who are looking to lose weight as they are nutritious and tend to keep you full for a longer time.  Nuts should always be eaten raw and unsalted, so they are beneficial for weight loss efforts,  adds Shilpa.

6. Source of Dietary Fibres

According to studies, cashew nuts have a great percentage of dietary fibers. The two essential dietary fibres required by our body are, oleic acid and palmitic acid.  These fibers are not produced by our body hence they need to be consumed externally,  says nutritionist Anju Sood. Cashew nuts are good sources of these fibers. Dietary fibers help digest food better, however excessive consumption may cause bloating and significant intestinal gas production. Consumption of nuts like cashews have been related to decreased incidences of several digestive diseases.

7. Healthy and Shiny Hair

Experts say that the consumption of cashews as well as the application of cashew oil on your scalp ensures healthy hair.  Copper present in cashew nut oil helps in the production of skin and hair pigment called melanin,  says nutritionist Gargi Sharma. It also enhances hair colour and can provide a silky-smooth texture due to the presence of linoleic and oleic acids.

Heavy periods, also called menorrhagia, is when a woman loses an excessive amount of blood during consecutive periods. In most cases, no underlying cause of heavy periods is identified. However, some conditions and treatments have been linked to menorrhagia, including: ? uterine fibroids ? intrauterine contraceptive devices (IUDs) ? anticoagulant medication ? polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) ? he cause of the problem may sometimes need to be investigated further. This will usually involve having a pelvic examination. A blood test may also sometimes be recommended to check for anaemia (iron deficiency). ? If a cause is still not found, then you may have an ultrasound scan Treating heavy periods In some cases, heavy periods do not need to be treated, as they can be a natural variation and may not disrupt your lifestyle. If treatment is necessary, medication is most commonly used first. However, it may take a while to find the medication most suitable for you, as their effectiveness is different for everyone and some also act as contraceptives.

If you had a Day 5 blastocyst transfer and its been 9 days now, and if are too anxious to know, you can go for a Serum Beta HCG levels to check for pregnancy, but it would be better to wait till day 14 to confirm pregnancy beyond doubt. Don't rely on any symptoms though. All the best.

yes it's entirely your choice if you want to resume your sexual life based on mutual consent from your partner,if she feels comfortable and the act is not aggressive it should not be of any threat, as regards having normal child birth,she can have that if she stays physically active and takes a proper antinatal treatment,vitamins and balanced diet.,for that having sex should not be an excuse.

Consulting gyne also but seek your wise opinion? can getting scared on seeing a fight could be reason? can any jerk on speed braker could be reason? blood gp is a+. Her age 38.

Jerk or speed baker seldom causes abortion but it causes traumatic abortion (trauma, bleeding and then abortion). Now, age is an important factor causing pregnancy loss. Hiv, rubella etc can never cause repeated pregnancy loss. We need to concentrate on 3 causes- genetic (both husband and wife), blood (thrombophilia) and hormonal causes.
