Is it safe to take juice of pomegranate and beetroot during first trimester. If it is safe, how much it should be taken.

Is it safe to take juice of pomegranate and beetroot during first trimester. If it is safe, how much it should be taken.
A serving of pomegranate juice contains 26.1 micrograms of vitamin K, a considerable portion of the 90 micrograms of this vitamin you need each day when you are pregnant. The vitamin K in your diet promotes normal blood clotting and bone strength, both in you and your fetus, so it is critical to take in adequate amounts. Drinking pomegranate juice can help you do that, particularly if you consume it in a meal rich in vitamin K-rich foods, such as parsley. Beetroot or Chukundar I contains a nutritious pigment known as the betacyanin , which detoxifies the liver and the blood. Beetroot thus helps in removing the toxins from the body, which means the fatty acids will not get the chance to get deposited in the body. A healthy liver means the proper functioning of the digestive system, and also a fit and fine body during pregnancy. A large number of women tend to put on weight during pregnancy, so consuming a beetroot will suppress this tendency to a certain extent. Iron is highly essential for every woman at any point in time. But during pregnancy, it is even more essential. Beetroot helps enhance the hemoglobin content of the blood. Thus, a pregnant woman is advised to consume beetroot juice for increasing the iron content of the body. Drinking beetroot juice during pregnancy keeps a woman from developing anemia. Beetroot also contains vitamin C. This vitamin helps the body absorb the iron present in the beetroot. If an expecting mother consumes this juice throughout her pregnancy, then she can surely give birth to a healthy and strong baby.

10 sexy questions that will make her wet

These question will make her think about making love to you and get turned on.

It is important to know how to how to flirt with a woman you like. With the right words, you will have her thinking about taking you to bed. This could even make her fall in love with you.

It is so much easier to ask these questions through a text, as she might feel uncomfortable if you ask her personally and this will blow your chances. Also, if she is uninterested, it is better to pretend you are kidding via text.

1 Are you alone? This question is perfect to understand if she’s idle and all alone at home. You obviously can’t flirt or talk sex if her friends are around her. Say something bold like “I wish I could be there with you” when she reciprocates with an affirmative.

2 What are you doing right now? Play it nice and slow. This can help you be certain that she’s alone and bored enough to give you her complete attention.

3 Do you like cuddling when you lie in bed? Warm her up to a flirty conversation without overstepping the line. This can help open her up by talking about cuddling with someone else.

4 What do you wear when you go to bed? / What are you wearing? A curious question that’s perfect to ask a girl when she’s in bed already. It’s personal, and yet not too sexual. Say something like “God, I can only imagine how cute you look right now” when she describes herself.

5 What do you think you look sexiest in? Get her to talk sexual by talking about her sexy clothing. It’s flattering and definitely sexual.

6 Have you ever made out with a guy just because you were horny at that time? Find out if she’s a girl who can be coaxed into having sex with a guy in the heat of the moment.

7. If you had a pair of x-ray glasses, which part of a guy’s body *below his shoulders* would you see first? Time to get naughty. Really, how many things can a girl take a look at below a guy’s shoulders? Let her answer the question so you always make it seem like she’s the one talking dirty and not you.

8. What’s your secret move to turn a guy on? By asking her to visualize making out with a guy and describe it to you, you’re making her fantasize about sex. And at the same time, she may go into details just to prove how good she is sexually.

9. If there’s one place a guy should touch you to make you horny, which is that? This goes straight to sex and arousal. And if she does answer this truthfully, in all probability, she’s already aroused.

10. Do you like giving an oral or getting one? No matter what she answers, you can always answer with the opposite of what she says. If she likes giving an oral, say you like getting it. If she likes getting it, tell her you love giving it!

How Can Nasal Obstruction Cause Clogged Ears

DNB (ENT), Diploma - Diploma - DLO - Rhino-Laryngology, MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Delhi
How Can Nasal Obstruction Cause Clogged Ears

There is a strong connection between the ears, nose and throat, as any ENT or Ear Nose Throat specialist will be able to tell you. When there is any kind of congestion or obstruction in the nasal passages, one can also feel some effect in the ears with the symptoms going from mild to severe.

So how can nasal obstruction cause clogged ears? Here is our explanation!

  1. The Connection: To begin with, let us understand the connection between the ears and the nose. There is an opening that can be found in the back of the nose, which leads into a tunnel called the Eustachian Tube. This tube goes into the ears and creates some amount of pressure when the nasal passages get blocked. This pressure can be felt as clogging of the ears and can usually be eradicated with the help of a pop in the ears. This pop can be brought about by pinching your nose and trying to breathe, or even yawning hard or indulging in some gulping or swallowing motion as well. 
  2. Mucosal Swelling: The swelling within the patient's nose usually points at the buildup of mucus, which can make the nasal lining thicker, thus making the act of breathing that much more laboured and difficult. This obstructs the nasal tract, in plain and simple terms. This swelling usually spreads to the tunnel or the Eustachian Tube, which can become swollen and even shut, consequently leading to a feeling of having clogged ears. 
  3. Negative Nasal Pressure: When the pressure inside the nose is built up in a negative way due to the obstruction that makes the patient breathe even harder, then the ears end up taking the pressure. This makes them clogged. This negative pressure usually manifests in the back of the nose where the Eustachian Tube is located, which creates a build up in the ears as well. This can also lead to a ringing pain when a patient tries to suck in air too hard due to the obstruction. 
  4. Bernoulli's Principle: If we are to incorporate air in place of fluid and liken the action of breathing with an obstructed nose, with the action of sucking fluid in through an obstructed straw, then the fluid dynamics would apply to this case. As per these fluid dynamics, more rapid flow of fluid can lead to decreased pressure on the surrounding areas. This can be applied to the blocked nose where air must pass through faster and with more fluidity so as to ensure that there is less pressure on the ears, which will keep them from getting clogged. 

Persistent clogged ears and nasal congestion can also point towards an infection and should be checked by a doctor immediately.

I am pregnant for last 2 months. How to stop vomiting as it happens almost everyday?

I am pregnant for last 2 months. How to stop vomiting as it happens almost everyday?
Vomiting in pregnancy is always considered as a healthy sign of good pregnancy, which means pregnancy is secreting enough hormones to produce vomiting. If your ultrasound report is normal there is no reason to worry. This is temporary, and can be relieved by tablet doxinate 3 times a day and eat in less quantity at one time. You can increase the frequency of meals than quantity. Also early morning eat 4-5 parle g biscuits and in whole day eat food with more sugar, to prevent more vomiting.

Does Watching Porn Together Really Help You Have a Better Sex Life?

MD - General Medicine
Sexologist, Nashik
Does Watching Porn Together Really Help You Have a Better Sex Life?
Does watching porn together help you have a better sex life?

It is often said that the couples who do most day-to-day activities together are more committed towards each other. But does the same stand true when it comes to watching sexual content or pornography? Well, research certainly seems to indicate that, with a whopping 96% couples watch pornography together. Here are some pros and cons of viewing porn with your partner.

PROs-

1. It may help you both in discovering your sexual preferences
It is important for both you and your partner to be on the same page when it comes to discovering your sexuality and figuring out each other’s sexual preferences. Just like adolescent sex education, pornography too educates you about the mechanics of sexual play. It is a useful tool that brings out the kinky side in you and makes you more open to discussions on things that pique your curiosity in the bedroom. As and when you see such visual imagery, it may appeal to you enough to try it out with your partner. Discuss such desires with your partner. This may help you in discovering what really turns you and your partner on.

2. It may help you in maintaining sexual fidelity in your relationship
Watching porn together with your partner can potentially increase the intensity of physical attraction between the two of you.This, as a result, leads to greater gratification for both of you, and if you are sexually satisfied by your partner, you are less likely to look for pleasure outside your relationship. Also, it is way healthier to indulge in it as a team rather than discovering your partner watching porn alone.

3. It may help both of you to pick up newer positions
Porn has the ability to expose you to new and exciting positions you never knew. About 58% of couples who viewed pornography claimed that the shared activity had a positive effect on their sex lives. New moves and unique positions are known to spice up sex lives. Men can surprise their women (or vice versa) with an exotic move or two. Porn may also help in decreasing shyness and in opening up your minds so that you can pick up and practice new moves.

CONs-

Although porn viewing may consist of potential benefits, it may also affect your relationship adversely. When watched in excess, porn may cause certain problems in your relationship, which are-
1. It might set up wrong expectations in reality
Porn movies give you a warped view of what beauty is. It may cause you to have unrealistically higher expectations from your partner, whereas the reality may not match your imaginitive hopes and standards. As a result, it may also lead to frustration, aggression and infidelity.

2. It may lead to pornography addiction
The visual and physical appeal of porn may impact a person’s mental or social well-being. Increased porn viewing may hint at a person’s social isolation, loss of interest in career and other activities etc. It may also make you highly dependent on it, as it allows immediate sexual gratification. As a result the usage may go out of control and relate directly to compulsive behaviour.

3. It may affect your sexual drive and libido
Making love to your partner in real-life may become a foreign concept, as porn can decrease your physical drive with the possibility of making you sexually lazy. Porn may also have certain side effects including probable loss of libido and even difficulty in lasting longer. It may also make regular intercourse seem boring as it may not have the same sensual and visual appeal as pornography.
After realising its various pros and cons if you want to use porn, it is advisable to not use it as replacement but as an accessory for better sexual well-being.

You cannot be pregnant as you took tablet and you had sex on a safe day. Fever may be due to infection and if it persists a check up is needed.

Will I be able to surgical abortion in the 8-9 week of pregnancy? What are the after effects? Will be able to continue my office?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
If pregnancy is between 7-12 weeks; surgical abortion is the only option. Advantages of surgical abortion quick procedure. Complete abortion easily verified by evaluation of aspirated products of conception. Takes place in a hospital so sterilization or placement of an intrauterine device (iud) may be performed at the same time as the procedure. It can be performed under local anaesthesia if woman is properly motivated and counselled. Disadvantages of surgical abortion requires instrumentation of the uterus. Small risk of uterine or cervical injury. Timing of abortion controlled by the doctor and hospital. Anaesthesia wneeds to be administered. Most doctors perform this procedure under short general anaesthesia. Woman needs to be in the hospital for at least 6 hours. Effect of sedation will be there throuout the day. You can join work after 1-2 days rest.

Try hard to reduce weight. At the same time, regularize cycle by taking drugs. Don't try pregnancy before regularizing hormones and reducing weight. At the same time, have some basic fertility check up done for you and your husband.
