Great, you raised gd query, every woman should know well in advance so she can plan her life. Usually cycle is of 28 days, when menses starts its 1st day, 1st 3 days is supposed to be healthier n normal flow without pain n clots, usually on 14th days or mid of your cycle is probably ovulation with a bit of feverish n pain in abdomen +/-2 days usually ovum survive for a day 24-72 hrs so from your day of menses day 12 to 16 you've privilege to conceive. Therefore 1 n last week of menses supposed to be safe but no one offer guarrentee as nature n your fate has to play its role. Condom is best for sparing from undue consequences like unplanned pregnancy and std take care, feel free to contact.

At the pregnant time, I advise you to do meditation for mental strength by doing slow and deep breathing relaxation exercises in the morning. Take proper balanced vegetarian diet. Take lots of water and fluids. Avoid garlic and red chilly and non veg and eggs.

My period cycle is irregular. And I am trying to conceive baby? Pls tell me the solution.

IVF Specialist, Sahibganj
My period cycle is irregular. And I am trying to conceive baby? Pls tell me the solution.
Hi, I think you should go for evaluation first. Do a thyroid profile and prolactin levels and a ultrasound for your uterus and ovaries. May be some medicines will be required. Then, you can take some medicines like clomiphene for the growth of your follicles and track your follicles growth by repeated ultrasound. When follicles reach a size more than 17 to 18 mm, take injection for rupturing the follicles. Be in contact with your husband for next 2 to 3 days. Take progesterone for next 2 weeks. Do a urine pregnancy test at home after that. You can try like that for 3 to 6 months. Hope I have answered your question. Regards

Which Oil Is Best

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Homeopath,
Which Oil Is Best

Coconut oil and cholesterol

About 70% of the fats in coconut oil are saturated fatty acids known to raise cholesterol. Another 14% or so are shorter chain fats called mcts, whose effects on cholesterol appear to be neutral. About 3% of the fat is stearic acid, which also doesn't affect cholesterol. Coconut oil also contains small amounts of mono- and poly-unsaturated fats, which are not thought to raise cholesterol


 Mustard oil and cholesterol

Fats, oilseeds, and nuts play an important role in our diets. Mustard oil is a type of fat, which is extracted from mustard seeds through pressing of seeds and is filtered using the distillation process. Mustard oil has got a typical pungent and sharp flavor that is because of the presence of a compound called allyl isothiocyanate. This oil has about 60% monounsaturated fatty acids (mufa), 21% polyunsaturated fats (pufa) and about 12% saturated fats. A higher amount of mufa and pufa distinguishes it from other types of fats. These fatty acids are also called 'good fats' as they do not get deposited on arterial walls. Mustard oil contains glucosinolate, which basically works against microbes and adds on to the oil's health benefits.

Facing problem In periods. Last 2-3 months I don't have periods. Its painful. No perfect timing in periods please help.
Just take tablet Saptasar kashayam 2-2 before meals with Shatavari gulam 1 tsf. It is d best medicine for u.in all aspects. And also remember it for future. These two take complete care of your Genital system. Do not go for ovral etc hormonal preparations. They will disrupt your entire integrity in d long run. Instead these natural preparations apart from helping in periods will be a boon for your overall health. please consult personally for other conspicuous details.

How can gestational hypertension affect your health and baby's?

MBBS
General Physician, Hyderabad
How can gestational hypertension affect your health and baby's?
It depends on how far along you are in pregnancy when you develop gestational hypertension and how high your blood pressure gets. The more severe your hypertension and the earlier in pregnancy it appears, the greater your risk for problems.

The good news is that most women who get gestational hypertension have only a mild form of the condition and don't develop it until near term (37 weeks or later). If you're in this category, you still have a somewhat higher risk of being induced or having a c-section, but other than that, you and your baby are likely to do as well as you would if you had normal blood pressure.

However, about 1 in 4 women with gestational hypertension go on to develop preeclampsia during pregnancy or labor, or soon after giving birth. And you have a 50 percent chance of getting preeclampsia if you develop gestational hypertension before 30 weeks.

Having gestational hypertension also puts you at increased risk for a number of other pregnancy complications, including intrauterine growth restriction, preterm birth, placental abruption, and stillbirth. Because of these risks, your caregiver will monitor you and your baby carefully.

Though clomid can increase chances of multiple pregnancies, but you may not get desired twins. Most often it results in single pregnancy. Ivf can give multiple pregnancies.

I have a 3 years old daughter and am worried about my post baby tummy. I did not have a normal delivery. How can I reduce my tummy n also have a loose skin.

PGDD, RD, Bachelor of Home Science
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
Post pregnancy weight gain or belly fat is more than often due to lack of nutrition and exercise. Also you cannot target one body part. You have to work on overall loss and toning. Eat small but frequent meals. Avoid long gaps in between meals. Avoid junk as far as possible. Exercise at least 4 times a week. Lastly be committed. Remember it's a lifestyle change and not a one time thing. It's a balanced intake that will last you longer. All the so called diets will only give you muscle and bone loss. The fats will remain as it is. So, try to first follow this seemingly simple tips. I am sure it will at least help you with initial fat loss.

I Am a pott spine tuberculosis patient treatment going since from 4 months and my daughter is 7months running now. As she is not at all taking my breastmilk from 1month she is crying a lot when iam making her to take my breast to give her feed but she is not at all taking please suggest me some trick so that she take my breast again as before because she is becoming thin by having only formula lactogen milk and cerelac.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology

Once you have stopped feeding from last one month, there is very little milk secretion. She must have stopped feeding on you because either milk was very less or u must be giving her bottle milk. There are some galactogauges which can increase ur milk production. If still she is not taking then u can express ur milk in a bowl and feed her with the spoon

Diet and exercise are going to be the most important things to follow in your case. However Metformin is an anti diabetic medication which helps control sugars, control PCOS and also helps in losing weight. I would strongly recommend you take it after physically meeting a local doctor and taking a prescription for the same.

Fresh Fruits Vs. Dry Fruits

Fresh Fruits Vs. Dry  Fruits

Fresh Fruits vs. Dehydrated Fruits - What’s Better?

It is said that dehydrated fruits offer same health benefits as that of fresh fruits, but differ slightly in mineral and vitamin content. Both fresh and dried fruits will provide you with fiber and antioxidants, which are beneficial for your health; however dried fruits usually lose a small percentage of their vitamins during the process of dehydration.

When you compare fresh and dried fruits, it’s great to make use of the standard serving sizes, which are 1 cup of fresh fruit and ¼ cup of dried fruit.

But when fruits lose their water content and eventually volume during the drying process, their sugar, calorie and nutrient content become concentrated. So when you consume a handful of dried fruits, there is an in-take of more calories than you would if you consumed that same quantity of fresh fruits.

Besides giving you a variety in taste and health benefits, both fresh fruits and dehydrated fruits have their own significance.

For instance, whereas dry fruits can offer you portability and a longer shelf life; fresh fruit as opposed to dry fruits contain higher amount of minerals and hence is a more nutritious choice than dried fruits.

If you are keeping a close watch on your weight, then dried fruits should not be eaten much as they contain considerably more calories in each serving than the fresh fruits. Dried fruits that contain sugar additives are high in calorie content, but the ones with low calorie content offer numerous health rewards:

- Antioxidants

There are some dried fruits which are a rich source of antioxidants, the Journal of the American College of Nutrition revealed. For instance, Phenol an antioxidant-type is found more in dried fruits such as figs and dates than in fresh fruits.

- High Fiber

Dried fruits are usually high in fiber content than the equal-sized serving of the fresh fruits. Fiber helps in running our digestive system smoothly and prevents obesity as well as cancer and heart disease.

Three studies by Natural Body Care confirm the stick’s gynecological benefits when used regularly.

Gooseberries These berries help restore the vagina’s elasticity and suppleness within a short period. All you have to do is boil some in water and store the solution.
