Dear, Causes of irregular periods are : * Due to Anaemia (low Hb level in body is anemia ) * Due to hormonal imbalance * PCOD * Stress * obesity For making regular your periods these are some instructions given below: • Take proper diet full of nutrition . Eat green leafy vegetables and seasonal fruits and a glass of milk daily. Eat a fruit daily . • Do Not take stress because stress causes imbalance in hormones of female and make your menstrual cycle disturb and make your ovulation disturb . Do meditation or long breathing pranayams for 10 minutes to maintain hormonal balance. • Do jogging and running exercise daily .Start these exercise for 3 to 4 minutes daily then increase time slowly . If you are obese loose some weight this is also a cause of irregular periods. • Do skipping regularly for 2 to 3 minutes daily. Stomach pain occurs during periods is due to contraction of muscles of uterus. For take relief follow these methods: * take i/3 rd piece of ginger boil it in one glass of water, when half glass water remain then take it with one teaspoon of ajwayin. * use warm water bottle put it on your stomach area with wrap in the towel. * take rest properly do not do hard work. Do not do running and jogging before 7 days from periods coming date . * Do massage with lukewarm mustard oil around area below stomach and back .

Ginger: 9 Reasons Why You Should Know Adrak Ka Swaad

Ginger: 9 Reasons Why You Should Know Adrak Ka Swaad

Ginger or adrak, a staple spice of Indian household today, originated in the south-east Asia more than 5000 years ago. Back then, it was considered a medicine for all ailments. It contains a compound known as 'gingerol' that has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

Ginger has been used to combat the common cold in addition to being a taste enhancer in food and tea. But little do we know about the gamut of health benefits that it provides.

Here are some amazing health benefits of this wonder spice:

1. Boosts immunity

It cleans the body's sewage system thereby preventing the accumulation of toxins. Cut ginger into small pieces and put into a bowl of water and then boil for 8-10 minutes. Drink this herbal solution for 3-4 times a day, relieving you of the irritating coughs in addition to boosting your immunity. If you do not like the taste of it, stir some honey or lemon into it.

2. Helps in weight loss

Ginger also helps in promoting weight loss. It activates the body's metabolism and hence leads to burning of fat. Heat a cup of water till it boils, now add a small piece of ginger and keep it covered for five minutes. You can add lemon juice to taste. Drink this before breakfast for reaping maximum benefits.

3. Regulates blood pressure

Ginger acts similar to blood pressure controlling pills. It blocks the flow of calcium into heart cells which lowers blood pressure. Drink ginger tea before breakfast instead of popping the prescription pill.

4. Helps clear acne

The ginger extract helps in purification of blood. Extract ginger juice and store it in a refrigerator. Mix 2 tablespoon of ginger juice along with 2 tablespoons of honey and consume every morning on an empty stomach. This helps you get rid of a pimple, acne, and other skin disorders.

5. Lowers cholesterol

Consuming 2-3 grams of dry ginger every day has been associated with lowering cholesterol levels. Consuming ginger activates an enzyme that increases body's use of cholesterol. It also protects a diabetic person's organs such as liver and kidneys.

6. Aids in digestion

A good stomach is the sign of good health. A common problem among the mass is indigestion. Ginger is helpful in battling indigestion. Peel and cut the ginger into small pieces. Soak these in honey in a bottle and keep in sunlight for 10 days. Consume 2-4 pieces every morning.

7. Cures nausea

Chewing raw ginger is effective in treating nausea. Wash and peel ginger before cutting into small pieces. Chew these pieces throughout the day. You can also grab some snacks containing ginger.

8. Eases muscle pain

Heavy weight lifting at the gym often leads to muscle pain the following days. The anti-inflammatory property, attributed to sesquiterpenes such as zingiberene present in ginger, helps in reducing exercise-induced muscle pain if taken consistently over a period of time. One teaspoon of dried ginger or 2 teaspoons of chopped ginger can be added to meals daily.

9. Relieves joint pain

The anti-inflammatory property of the ginger helps in fighting osteoarthritis- a condition of joint pain and stiffness. Applying ginger oil topically on the joints lowers the pain and also eliminates the necessity to pop pain killers.

It should be noted here that ginger should not be given to children under the age of 2 years. For children over 2 years, you should consult your doctor to determine the right dose. Adults should not consume more than 4 grams per day.

With so much to offer, ginger can safely be tagged as a superfood that you should make a part of your daily diet.

Pregnancy can be terminated with medicines (mifepristone and misoprostol) only till 7 weeks of pregnancy. As you said it is two weeks after missed period, which is almost 6 weeks. You need to hurry to get the abortion done with medicines. Gynecologist only can write a prescription for her.

Normally heart beat of baby should be there at 2 months (8 weeks) so if absent is a concern .It most likely falls into category of missed bortion so needs urgent intervention.

Im 25 years old. And I want to get pregnant again. How can I know im fertile? My last period was june 14.
Hi, in general, a woman's fertile window is the day of ovulation (usually 12 to 16 days before the menstrual period begins) and the five days preceding it. For the average woman that occurs somewhere between days 10 and 17 who have normal 28 days of menstrual cycle. Ovulation happens about two weeks before the next expected period. So if your average menstrual cycle is 28 days, you ovulate around day 14. Remember the'fertile window' is the six days leading up to and including ovulation. The three days leading up to and including ovulation are the most fertile. Try to have unprotected sex during this time to get pregnant again.

Tamarind Benefits And Side Effects in Hindi - इमली के फायदे और नुकसान

Tamarind Benefits And Side Effects in Hindi - इमली के फायदे और नुकसान

अपने खट्टे-मीठे और चटक स्वाद से लोगों के दांत खट्टे करती है इमली. अपने स्वाद से तो सबको लुभाती ही है इसके गुणों पर भी कई लोग लट्टू हैं. लेकिन स्वाद और स्वास्थ्य से भरपूर इमली में सिर्फ लाभदायक गुण ही नहीं होते हैं. इसके कुछ गुण हानिकार भी होते हैं. तो आईए इसके हानि और लाभ को जानें-

1. ह्रदय को रखे स्वस्थ
इमली में पाए जाने वाले तीनों प्रमुख तत्व पोटैशियम, फाइबर और एंटीऑक्सीडेंट दिल को स्वस्थ रखने में मदद करते हैं. पोटैशियम रक्तचाप को नियंत्रित करता है. फाइबर कोलेस्ट्राल को नियंत्रित करता है. जबकि इमली के में पाया जाने वाला एंटीऑक्‍सीडेंट फ्री रेडिकल्‍स को चैक में रखने में मदद करते हैं.
2. प्रतिरोधक क्षमता को करे मजबूत
इमली में पाया जाने वाला एंटी-ऑक्‍सीडेंट और एंटी-माइक्रोबियल गुण दोनों का कॉम्बो मजबूत प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली के निर्माण का बेहतरीन विकल्‍प तैयार करते हैं.यदि आप लगातार समय पर इमली का सेवन करें तो इससे सभी प्रकार के माइक्रोबियल संक्रमण से दूर रहने और अन्‍य संक्रमणों से लड़ने की भरपूर ताकत मिलती है. 
3. पाचन की प्रक्रिया करे दुरुस्‍त
जैसा कि हम ऊपर देख चुके हैं कि इमली में फाइबर प्रचुर मात्रा में पाया जाता है. आपको बता दें कि फाइबर की अधिकता पाचन प्रक्रिया में भी मदद करती है. कब्ज और डायरिया जैसे पाचन सम्बन्धी विकार भी इमली से ठीक होने में मदद मिलती है. इसके लिए आपको एक चम्‍मच इमली के गूदे को एक लीटर पानी में मिलाकर, इसे उबालने के बाद छानकर इसका अर्क बनाकर पीना होगा.
4. तंत्रिका तंत्र को भी करे मजबूत
इमली अपने लाभकारी गुणों की सहायता से हमारी प्रतिरक्षातंत्र को भी मजबूती प्रदान करती है. इसमें पाया जाने वाला थियामाइन जो कि विटामिन बी कॉम्‍प्‍लेक्‍स का हिस्‍सा ह, थियामाइन तंत्रिका तंत्र को मजबूत बनाता है. इसके साथ ही मांसपेशियों के विकास को भी बढ़ावा देने में मदद करता है.
5. जोड़ों के दर्द में राहत
इमली के कई लाभों में से एक ये भी है कि ये त्वचा और हड्डियों के लिए भी बेहद लाभकारी है. त्वचा के सुजन सम्बन्धी समस्याओं के निवारण में इमली एक अचूक दवा की तरह काम करती है. इसके साथ ही इसके उपयोग से जोडों में दर्द को भी ठीक किया जजा सकता है. इसके लिए लुब्रिकेशन के लिए आधा चम्‍मच भुने हुए इमली के बीज के पाउडर को दो बार पानी के साथ लेना होगा.
 6. इमली मोटापे को भी घटाता है
वजन कम करने के लिए लोग कई तरह की दवाइयों का सेवन करते हैं. यदि आप भी वजन को लेकर परेशान हैं या मोटापे से निजात पाना चाहते हैं तो इमली इसमें भी आपकी मदद करता है. इमली में परचुर मात्रा में हाइड्रोऑक्साइट्रिक एसिड की मौजूदगी शरीर में फैट को जलाने वाले इन्जाइम को बढ़ाने में मददगार होती है. इसकी सहायता से वजन घटाने में मदद मिलती है इसलिए आप चाहें तो इसे अपने आहार में भी शामिल कर सकते हैं.
7. शुगर नियंत्रित करे
बेहद आसानी से उपलब्ध हो जाने वाली इमली एक अल्‍फा एमिलेज अवरोध है. इसका मतलब ये हुआ कि यह कार्बोहाइड्रेट को शुगर में अवशोषित और परिवर्तित होने से रोक सकती है जो की ब्‍लड शुगर का स्‍तर बढ़ाने का सबसे बड़ा कारण है. यदि आप आधा चम्‍मच इमली का गूदा प्रतिदिनलें तो इससे न केवल आपका वजन कम होता है, बल्कि डायबिटीज भी नियंत्रण में रहती है.

इमली के नुकसान

1. रक्तस्त्राव का जोखिम: यदि आप इमली का सेवन करते समय कुछ सावधानी न बरतें तो इससे रक्तस्त्राव का जोखिम उत्पन्न हो सकता है. आपको एस्पिरिन, इब्यूप्रोफेन, नेपोरेक्सन आदि दवाओं के सेवन के बाद इमली कभी नहीं खानी चाहिए.
2. गर्भवती महिलाओं को: स्वाद में खट्टी लगने वाली इमली विटामिन सी की एक अच्छी स्त्रोत है. यहाँ गौर करने वाली बात ये है कि विटामिन सी के अधिक सेवन से एस्ट्रोजन का स्तर बढ़ जाता है और उच्च एस्ट्रोजन गर्भाशय में संकुचन और ब्लीडिंग पैदा कर सकता है. इसलिए गर्भवती महिलाओं को गर्भपात से बचाने के लिए विटामिन सी युक्त फल जैसे कि इमली न दें.
3. एलर्जी: कई ऐसे लोग हैं जिन्हें इमली ज्यादा मात्रा में खाने से एलर्जी की समस्या हो जाती है. इसलिए इसके दुष्प्रभाव जैसे कि खुजली, सुजन, चक्कर, बेहोशी, उल्टी, सांस की परेशानी आदि से बचने के लिए ज्यादा इमली न खाएं.
4. गले में खराश: जिन लोगों के गले में खराश की समस्या होती है उन्हें इमली ही नहीं किसी भी अम्लीय पदार्थों से दूर ही रहना चाहिए.
 

Can a sexually transmitted disease can be spread from one person to another while eating or drinking something or sleeping. Answer as soon as possible.

D.N.B, D.G.O, M.B.B.S
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Sexually transmitted diseases do not spread by eating or drinking together. They spread by sexual contact with the diseased person or by sharing used clothes. There is a chance of spread by sleeping together if the infected person is having lot of discharge which soils the bedding also, otherwise no.

First, dont eat for 2. That is an old concept and the main cause for weight gain and loss of shape etc. Eat healthy foods, lots of fruits and vegetables. Have milk/curds. The first 3 months you may not feel like eating much, and that is ok. Eat when hungry and what you feel like. Avoid sweets, fried foods, cakes, bakery foods etc. Have them very occasionally. Finally have happy thoughts and positive thoughts about the outcome of the pregnancy. All will be fine.
