Once you have got the happy news of a little one coming soon in your life, you should start taking some special care so that you can enjoy the journey of pregnancy and get a healthy baby (learn about Dietary Dos and Don'ts for Pregnancy)

These are some pointers you have to follow during pregnancy:

  1. Maintain good hygiene during pregnancy. Take bath regularly. Warm shower or sponge bath is considered better than tub bath.

  2. Brush your teeth regularly and have a regular dental check up. Caries tooth can be extracted after 12 weeks of pregnancy.

  3. Avoid wearing tight clothes and shoes with high heels. Wear loose and light clothes.

  4. Take lots of fluid, fresh fruits & vegetables.

  5. Take a diet which is light, nutritious, easily digestible & rich in protein, less fat, minerals and vitamins.

  6. Stop smoking and drinking alcohol. It can cause miscarriage, defect in the development and growth of the baby.

  7. Avoid jerky travelling, especially in 1st 12 wks and last 6wks of pregnancy. Prolonged sitting in a car or plane should be avoided. Air travel is not advisable to women who have high blood pressure, less hemoglobin (anemia) and low lying placenta.

  8. Avoid taking any unprescribed drugs, exposure to X-Ray & chemicals especially in the 1st 12 weeks of pregnancy.

  9. Take adequate rest in the lateral position and relax 1-2 hrs in the afternoon & 8 hrs at night.

  10. Start taking folic acid at least 3 months before planning pregnancy & continue it till the 1st 12 weeks of pregnancy.

  11. Start taking iron & calcium after 12 wks of pregnancy and continue it throughout pregnancy and 6 months post delivery.

  12. Exercise regularly during pregnancy. Walking is the best exercise, but long periods of walking should be avoided. Also avoid heavy weight lifting and prolonged standing. Diving, water sking, gymnastic, netball, hockey, horse riding, cycling, rock-climbing, & scuba diving exercises should be avoided during pregnancy.

  13. If you have any of these symptoms - vaginal bleeding, persistent abdominal pain, persistent vomiting, watery discharge from vagina, less or no fetal movement, severe headache, swelling on hands, face & feet, fever, dizziness, blurring of vision, double vision, spots before eyes, painful urination and diarrhea, immediately consult your gynecologist.

There are quite a few of them out there. A recipe for sex is basically a list of days to have sex on to try to get pregnant. Having sex on days 9, 11, 12, 14, & 16 of your cycle. Of course if you don't have a 28 day cycle this one probably won't work for you. Another plan is having sex every other day starting about day 10 of your cycle. 2. Try fertility charting fertility charting involves taking your temperature at the same time every morning before getting out of bed. You also observe for signs that you are ovulating and chart your cervical mucous pattern. Charting can help determine if you are ovulating and help you to pinpoint when ovulation is occurring. 3. Use ovulation prediction kits (opks) you can buy ovulation prediction kits at your local pharmacy or you can find them even cheaper if you purchase them online. A day or two before you ovulate, your body produces a surge of luteinizing hormone, lh. Opks work by detecting this lh surge. Follow the directions that come with your kit to determine how to read the test strips, what time of day to test, and also what day of your cycle you should begin testing. Opks cannot confirm ovulation, but they can help you predict ovulation before it occurs. Used in combination with fertility charting, they are very effective in determining ovulation.

Menses usually lasts for 4-5 days, if you had an intercourse at the time of menses there will be no chance of pregnancy. Still if you doubt get a upt kit from chemist and do a test. It will say about the pregnancy.

Hello, I got married 6 months back. My wife experiences pain whenever I try to finger her vagina. I am always gentle on her and I also tried lubricants but has no effect. Also, is it safe to perform oral sex on my wife? My wife sometimes has a vaginal odor and it sometimes turns me off. Please advise!

Hello feeling of pain may be due to apprehension and is subjective. For vaginal odor, you can take opinion of a doctor. Oral sex is safe but can not be replaced by normal vaginal sex.

Hello, The present vaginal itching with watery discharge is indicative of mixed vaginosis and you should get a high vaginal swab culture done and then would have to be placed on antibiotics. Periods if missed not due to pregnancy then you can actually wait for another week and then opt for withdrawal bleed with progesterones.

Is liposuction a good option for 24 years 5.1 feet gal with over sized hips a good option. Do we have any other option.

Is liposuction a good option for 24 years 5.1 feet gal with over sized hips a good option. Do we have any other option.
For 5.1 feet you need to reduce only 10 kgs + from 65 kgs now. It will not be difficult to inculcate healthy habits now at age 25 which are sort of lifestyle modifications for heart health also. I will not advice surgery to reduce 10 kgs only. If you have not tried diet + exercise, start now. If you feel that hips are oversized, they will get in proportion as the weight sheds. Try walks, cycling, swimming, steady cycle at home & exercising while watching tv in privacy of your home (any one of above or all of above) yoga as meditation and also as a stretching exercise. Dieting is simple and you can do it minus any special diet charts. Give up sugar and fats. Take simple proteins which are nourashing and filling too-a glass of toned milk/ katori of curd/ assorted nuts/ dry roasted chane/ boiled egg/ lassi minus sugar and fats. Eat as much as you like-every seasonal vegetable and fruit-never mind the sugar in them, it is healthy sugar. Eat one full meal of roti daal chaawal. Reduce intake of salt as it leads to water retention. Take juice of fresh lemon + spoon of honey + glass of warm water everyday on empty stomach. Drink 2 spoons of apple cider vinegar with juice or a spoon of honey with water. Do write back after a month, weight reduction will be @ 5 kgs /month, may stabalise for some time followed by rapid decline in weight till you reach your target of 50-55 kgs to look and feel healthy.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. Hormonal changes from monthly menstruation can trigger cysts as well as transient inflammation/ swelling of the breasts. However, breast cysts are usually benign. Usually, before the onset of menses, the breast tissue with the larger breast often tends to swell with some amount of tenderness/ pain. But, this is often temporary and resolves automatically. Should the pain be unbearable, you may apply an alternating heat and cold treatment for couple of minutes that may alleviate pain. Do stay well hydrated and take'amla churna' (patanjali) &'bael churna (patanjali- 1/2 tsp each with warm water, preferably before lunch daily for next 1 month. Simultaneously, keep your diet and lifestyle streamlined, you can take tomato soup to which fresh herbs like garlic, turmeric, black pepper, ginger, coriander leaves and oregano has been added, once daily. Just make sure that you keep at least 2 hours gap between any of your present allopathic medications and the natural remedies as suggested above. Its advisable that you check with your doc on how long he/ she wants you to continue with cabergoline medication. Hope this helps. Take care and all the very best. Sincerely,

You must have often wondered why being in love causes you to lose appetite and sleep? well apparently, the human brain when in love, releases the same neurotransmitters and hormones that are released while consuming amphetamines (illegal drugs used as mood stimulants). This causes intense feelings of excitement and loss of hunger and sleep, especially when the cupid hits you with his arrow!

Would you like to share this interesting fact with family or friends? go ahead and share!

You should try conceiving during your wife's fertile period, also start doing some workout daily as it will enhance fertility of both partners. Take diet rich in folic acid, green vegetables, fruits, and dairy products. Quit coffee, fried food and canned food.
