Pregnancy ke ye symptoms nahi hai, ye taklif ke liye doctor ko milo. Jahan tak pregnancy ka sawal hai to Pregnancy mahine ke hi din rah sakti hai jab anda phut ta hai. Vo din ke aaspas intercourse important hai. Kyonki mahine ka ek hi din hota hai jab 12 se 24 mahina bina family planning intercourse hota hai aur pregnancy nahi rahti hai tab Gynecologist ya to infertility specialist ke paas jana hota hai.

Health benefits of broccoli

MD - General Medicine
Sexologist, Delhi
Health benefits of broccoli

Cholesterol reduction: Like many whole foods, broccoli is packed with soluble fiber that draws cholesterol out of your body. Reducing allergic reaction and inflammation: Research has shown the ability of kaempferol to lessen the impact of allergy-related substances on our body. Broccoli even has significant amounts of omega 3 fatty acids, which are well known as an anti-inflammatory. Powerful antioxidant: Of all the cruciferous vegetables, broccoli stands out as the most concentrated source of vitamin C, plus the flavonoids necessary for vitamin C to recycle effectively. Also concentrated in broccoli are the carotenoids lutein, zeaxanthin, and beta-carotene, other powerful antioxidants. Bone health: Broccoli contains high levels of both calcium and vitamin K, both of which are important for bone health and prevention of osteoporosis. Heart health: The anti-inflammatory properties of sulforaphane, one of the isothiocyanates (ITCs) in broccoli, may be able to prevent (or even reverse) some of the damage to blood vessel linings that can be caused by inflammation due to chronic blood sugar problems. Diet aid: Broccoli is a good carb and is high in fiber, which aids in digestion, prevents constipation, maintains low blood sugar, and curbs overeating.

Yes it is normal as it happens with changing hormones in your body. The sinking feeling is because of hypotension which occurs in pregnancy to felicitate more blood flow towards uterus for foetal growth. You increase uptake of fresh fruits and juices and take lots of liquid it will compensate hypovolemia n hypotension. No need to take any medicine for it. Enjoy your pregnancy.

5 Pros & Cons Of Hormone Therapy

DGO, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Pune
5 Pros & Cons Of Hormone Therapy

A hysterectomy is the removal of the uterus and is often accompanied by the removal of ovaries. In such cases, women are said to experience surgical menopause. This is because the ovaries are the main producers of estrogen. Surgical menopause is usually more severe than natural menopause as there is a sudden drop in estrogen levels. Estrogen is responsible for a number of functions that affect the brain, bones, skin, heart and blood vessels. 

Hormone therapy is often advised to counteract this loss of estrogen. There are two main types of hormone therapy.

1. Hormone therapy with estrogen and progestin.
2. Hormone therapy with only estrogen.
The former is advisable foe women suffering from surgical menopause. Like any other form of treatment, it has its pros and cons. 


Pros
1. It protects young women from diseases associated with menopause. 
A hysterectomy is usually performed on women under the age of 50. In such cases, hormone replacement therapy can protect the women from heart diseases. Removing ovaries before menopause can also increase the risk of Parkinson's disease and dementia. Hormone replacement therapy can help negate these risks. 
2. Reverse menopausal symptoms. 
Menopause is associated with a number of symptoms such as vaginal dryness, hot flashes and insomnia. Hormone replacement therapy can help treat these symptoms and give you a better quality of life. 
3. Other health benefits. 
Hormone replacement therapy can also help fight osteoporosis and strengthen bones. It is also known to reduce the risk of colorectal cancer. 

Cons
1. Hormone replacement therapy interferes with the natural hormone production. Thus it can cause a number of problems such as premenstrual syndrome, swollen breasts, headaches and nausea.
2. Increased risk of health issues. Though the odds are low, hormone replacement therapy can increase your risk of having a stroke or heart attack. It has also been suggestively linked to breast cancer and ovarian cancer. 

Thus, the choice of whether to have or not to have hormone replacement therapy after surgical menopause is not easy to make. You must consider factors such as your age, lifestyle, family medical history and habits while making this decision. Do not rush into a decision and take your time. Talk to your doctor about the amount of medication needed and the delivery method most suited to you.  HRT can be taken in the form of pills, a patch, gel, vaginal cream or a slow releasing suppository. This should also be accompanied by a healthy lifestyle that includes a healthy diet and plenty of exercise.

Most early pregnancy symptoms occur within the first four weeks and may include: A late period. Slight bleeding or cramping as the embryo implants in your uterus (implantation bleeding) Tender breasts that seem to be growing already! Extreme tiredness. Yes, it might not just be too many late nights, after all! Backache. Pregnancy tests are usually simple urine tests that show if a woman is pregnant. They test for a hormone called human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG). HCG is released when a fertilized egg attaches to the lining of the uterus. HCG is only found in a woman's body if she is pregnant.

Hi, grown up n take a charge of your own life, what had happened in past leave behind, take care in future. It'll take at least 3 cycles of your terms to get normal routine. Have balanced diet, add carat, dates(shallow fried in ghee) pomegranate. Have shatavari tabs twice before food. You may encounter laziness so indulge in healthy warm up.

Hye. This is not the time now to think about weight loss. Usually dieting for most people means crashing your food intake. This may have shown loss on the weighing scale but at the cost of losing out on muscle mass and nutrients. Now that you are back on your routine diet the body is taking up whatever it's getting. Try to now concentrate on eating right. Do not try to avoid certain foods so you don't gain weight. You weight is essential for the growth of your baby and both your immunity. Just try to enjoy your pregnancy. This time won't come back again. Also, if you follow a healthy lifestyle, good nutritious diet and stay active after delivery, you should definitely lose the pregnancy fat. So, enjoy the pregnancy and all the best health to you.
