Missing period is the most important symptom. To confirm you should get urine pregnancy test done at home and if negative keep repeating every week till menses comes. Apart from that nausea and vomiting and breast fullness will start 15 days of missed period. Pain in abdomen is definitely not the symptom of pregnany. Also if you r having normal menses and bid not miss your menses, pregnancy is not the possibility.

Health Tip on Breathing:

For thousands of years, breathing practices were believed to improve our health and wellness.

Modern research has shown that this is still the case: proper breathing can help us boost our immune system, lower blood pressure, accelerate healing and much more.You may be wondering: “why would I need to learn how to breathe? I was born breathing!”

Well, yes, apparently we were all breathing professionals as new-borns.

According to Don Campbell, author of Perfect Breathing: Transform Your Life One Breath At A Time, we were born with a natural ability to breathe. If you ever watched a baby breath, he says, “you will notice that they inhale naturally and deeply and their stomachs expands like a balloon with each breath”.

Sadly, however, this ability doesn’t follow us for too long: modern life and its usual patterns such as stressful lifestyle and sedentary habits take over our natural ability to breathe slowly. Have you observed your breathing pattern when you are experiencing emotional overwhelm or everyday stress?
As stated in one of Harvard Medical School’s publications on breathing: “one reason may be that our culture often rewards us for stifling strong emotions. Girls and women are expected to rein in anger. Boys and men are exhorted not to cry. What happens when you hold back tears, stifle anger during a charged confrontation, tiptoe through a fearful situation, or try to keep pain at bay? Unconsciously, you hold your breath or breathe irregularly.”

Breathing can help us relax and gain focus by getting rid of the tensions in our body.
That’s why ancient practices like yoga, meditation and Pilates are proven methods for your mind body health.

THE BENEFITS OF SLOW BREATHING
“When we go below 10 breaths a minute we engage the parasympathetic nervous system, which helps the body relax when it has been injured”, states Clinical Psychologist Dr. Meunch. Slow breathing, he continues: “activates the vagus nerve, the primary cranial nerve, which is associated with a recuperative state.”

The benefits of breathing don’t stop here though.

Slow breathing has been proved to regulate high blood pressure, which is one of the main risk factors for strokes and heart attacks.
For this reason, different breathing devices have recently landed to the market, including Resporate. This device first monitors patient’s breaths per minute.

Then it plays musical notes so that the patient can breathe in on one note, and breathes out on another.

The slower the breath, the longer the note will play.

On top of physical benefits, breathing also affects our minds.
With deep inhalation we bring more oxygen into our bodies, with deep exhalation we are removing toxins from our body. Simple yet fascinating process.

SO HOW DO WE BREATHE PROPERLY?
The air you breathe in through your nose should go all the way down to your stomach. Your breathing muscles consist of the diaphragm and muscles in your core, chest, neck and shoulders. For deep breath, 70-80% of the inhaling should be done by pushing your diaphragm away from your ribcage. In simple words, go back to being a baby and fill your belly and chest with oxygen!

Try this breathing exercise out. This can be executed anywhere, at your desk in the office, at home or when on public transportation:
1) Inhale deeply, for 2 seconds. When you do this, think of filling your lungs from the bottom to the top.

2) Hold for 1 second.

3) To help activate your diaphragm, exhale for 2 seconds, as it you were blowing out a candle.

4) Hold for another second.

5) Repeat.

Once you master this simple exercise, your body will remember this breathing technique and you will start to incorporate slow breathing into your daily activities.

Yes as long as it is regular it should not be a problem. Still ensure that you are not anaemic and your body weight is normal.

There is no evidence to suggest that intercourse should be avoided in pregnancy. The only advise is in case she has had any vaginal bleeding then its best to go to a doctor for examination and advice.

You want to avoid pregnancy. Do sex 5 days before start of bleeding and 5 days after end of bleeding. The chances are very less during this period.

Dengue Fever - Causes, Treatment, and Management

MD
General Physician
Ask Free Question
Dengue fever is a painful infection transmitted by the bite of one of the 4 closely related viruses that are carried by a type of mosquitoes known as Aedes mosquitoes. The infection is not directly from one person to another.

Symptoms: After the mosquito bite, symptoms set in about 4 to 6 days and can last up to 10 days (as noted below). Most are general symptoms which can be seen with any viral infection and therefore most dengue cases can go undetected.

Sudden high temperatures
Pain behind the eyes
Severe headaches
Swollen lymph nodes
Severe bone and muscle pains (this can lead to suspicion of dengue)
Fatigue
Nausea and vomiting
Skin rash that appears 3 to 5 days after the onset of fever
There could be in some cases gum bleeding, easy bruising, or nose bleeding

The dengue triad of symptoms is fever, headache and the skin rash. This could lead to suspicion and blood tests that can lead to diagnosis.

The acute phase lasts for about 2 weeks in most cases and there is no antibiotic (it is a viral infection) cure for it. The treatment is therefore symptomatic, aimed at reducing fever and pains.

If left untreated, especially in children, a severe case called as Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever (DHF) can occur, which affects children under 10 years of age and can cause failure of the circulatory system. This can also occur when a person is developing dengue for the second time. This is a serious form and can even lead to death; therefore the symptoms should be taken seriously and attended to immediately.

Diagnosis: Confirmation of dengue is through a blood test, where the virus is tested for.

Treatment: Being a viral infection, antibiotics are not effective against dengue. Pain killers with acetaminophen are preferred. Aspirin is avoided, as it can worsen bleeding. Complete bed rest, hydration and good nutrition are essential parts of the treatment. Being under medical supervision also helps watch out for complications. There is a vaccine under development that could become available in the next couple of years.

Prevention:

Always use mosquito repellents, even indoors
While being outdoors, use clothes that cover the arms and legs fully
Use a mosquito net if your area is highly infested with mosquitoes
Ensure the windows and doors are closed during the evening
If you are suspicious of having dengue, reach out to the doctor
Reduce chances for mosquitoes breeding by keeping the house clean
If there are family members with dengue, protect yourself and them from mosquitoes

Preventing dengue is the best way to manage it; however, if once infected, the person develops immunity to it. Reduced immunity can put the person at risk of developing the condition again.

Hi, monthly period depends upon hormonal cycle linked with ovary and uterus. Gnrh causes release of oestrogen and progesterone hormone from ovary. Oestrogen hormone initiates bleeding and progesterone helps in ceasing. If gnrh fails in releasing two hormone at that time period disturbance will be seen. So true fact is that masturbated mind hampers your adequate release of hormonal action so be balanced in body and mind. Ok.

My girlfriend has a lump on breast, this was like a big 1 Rupee coin, this is ok? I heard many people have that, also I hard that this is symptoms of breast cancer . What to do.

Lumps in breast can be of various types and their occurrence depends on the age of woman. I would assume for the sake of answering the question, that your girlfriend is anywhere between 20 and 30 years of age. This is an age where 9 out of 10 breast lumps are noncancerous. But yet a possibility of cancer cannot be completely ruled out. Every month woman's body prepares her for a pregnancy and there are hormonal ups and downs. Such changes are seen in breasts also. These changes are usually temporary unless a pregnancy occurs. But sometimes these changes persist and can be felt as a lump or generalized lumpiness. If the lump is cancerous it may be associated with growth of lump, nipple discharge, redness, lumps in armpit etc. To know exactly what it is, it is better to consult a surgeon, who will examine her, get a sonography of breasts and if the surgeon thinks it is necessary, a price might be removed from lump and checked under microscope for sure diagnosis. I hope this helps. See a surgeon.

Tips to Get Well From Cataract Operation

Cornea Cataract & Lasik
Ophthalmologist
Ask Free Question
A simple, uncomplicated cataract surgery should not take more than 10 minutes to perform. The best part about a cataract surgery is that most people see almost immediate results and improved vision. However, full recovery can take awhile. Each person heals at a different speed but ideally, your eyes should heal completely in a month. Here are a few tips to help speed up this process and avoid infections and eye injuries.

Take it easy
Just because the surgery takes a short time is no reason to underestimate its importance. Do not drive on the first day and as far as possible avoid driving for the next few days as well. Do not put any extra pressure on your eyes by bending, lifting weights etc. This will ensure that your stitches do not tear open. Try to avoid excessive sneezing and coughing as this can jerk the lens out of place.

Protect your eyes
Wearing sunglasses is a good idea after a cataract surgery. This will protect your delicate eyes against dust, wind etc. Avoid using community swimming pools and hot tubs immediately after such a surgery to lower the risk of infections. Avoid rubbing your eyes aggressively. For the first week, keep your face out of the shower so as to avoid feeling the need to press or rub your eyes as well as to protect them from bacteria in the water.

Lubricate
Your eyes may feel dry and scratchy after a cataract surgery. This is normal and not something to worry about. Your doctor will prescribe eye drops to be taken after the surgery. Use these regularly. Once this is over you may need additional artificial tears or lubricating eye drops. However, do not take these drops without first consulting your doctor. If your eyes are sensitive to the preservatives in bottled eye drops, look for single use ampoules. Ensure that you always wash your hands well before administering the eye drops.

Keep the eye clean
Though washing your face is avoidable, you must still keep the eye clean. Use cotton and a sterile saline wash for the first few days. You can later replace the saline with cool boiled water.

If you feel any deterioration in your vision, pain or excessive discharge in the operated eye, you must immediately consult your doctor. Seeing sudden flashes of light or floaters in your vision should also not be ignored.

Hello- Bleeding three days during menses is termed healthy in ayurvedic science. Any thing greater then this (which is commonly seen in females) can lead to blood deficiency in the body. So its a good sign and denotes that your health has been improved from last few months. There is absolutely nothing to worry.

Hi lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. It seems you have developed some vaginal infection. It's best if you visit a gynaecologist for an internal examination and prescription. Pope antibiotics along with local vaginal treatment should help you out. All the best.
