If the constipation from the third month of your pregnancy still continues, try consuming high amount of fibre, water, fresh juices especially orange and prune juice, as well as cereals with grains and wholemeal. All of these foods help in relieving constipation.

Hello- Home remedies like oil is not safe if used with condom as they can break condom during sex. It is recommended to use any water based lubricant along with the condom for full satisfaction. There are some good lubricants available by leading condoms brands like manforce , kamasutra etc.

Vitamin D Deficiency - 3 Symptoms to Identify it!

Vitamin D Deficiency - 3 Symptoms to Identify it!

3 Symptoms to identify vitamin d deficiency

Vitamin d deficiency is caused when your body does not get enough exposure to the sun that is the primary source of vitamin d for your body. It is crucial for the health of your bones, skin and neurological system, therefore, its deficiency may lead to a number of problems and risks such as rickets, osteoporosis, multiple sclerosis etc.

Here is a list of four symptoms that can help you to identify if you suffer from a deficiency of vitamin d.

1. Bone pain and muscle weakness


Adults who suffer from a deficiency of vitamin d feel a lot of achiness and pain in the bones and muscles of their body. Also, they are troubled with joint stiffness and fatigue that lowers the overall quality of their life.

2. Fits of sadness and grief

Exposure to the sun (and hence, vitamin d) improves the level of the neurotransmitter serotonin in your body that is responsible for lifting your spirits. However, deficiency of vitamin d prevents you from having a more positive outlook towards life. So, another symptom that can help you identify that your body is deficient in vitamin d is that you've got a lot of blues.

3. A lot of head sweat

If your head sweats a lot, you can be assured that you suffer from an acute deficiency of vitamin d. Head sweating is another prominent symptom associated with vitamin d deficiency. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult an endocrinologist.

Masturbation is regarded as a normal, healthy sexual activity. In general, the medical community considers masturbation to be a natural and harmless expression of sexuality for both men and women. It does not cause any physical injury or harm to the body, and can be performed in moderation throughout a person's lifetime as a part of normal sexual behavior. It will not affect you or your ability to have children in the future. If you wish to reduce the frequency of masturbation: It originates from brain, due to thinking about sex. Hence: ·     Do not watch adult material. ·     Concentrate more on your studies or work. ·     Exercise regularly.

Usually breast feeding need not be stopped if the mother is on antibiotics. Also 11 month old baby is already eating from the family pot. So breast milk is more for pacification at night. Do give him 3 major and 2-3 minor meals contain dal, chaval, veges, soups, mashed roti, banana, mango, dahi etc. Proper complementary feeding takes care of 80% dietary requirements.

I recently had my bp check, it's normal but the Dr. Say my heartbeat misses so times, does it serious issue.
Hi, ectopic heartbeats are small changes in a heartbeat that is otherwise normal. These changes lead to extra or skipped heartbeats. Often there is not a clear cause for these changes. They are mostly harmless. Ectopic beats may be caused or made worse by smoking, alcohol use, caffeine, stimulant medicines, and some street drugs. In adults, ectopic heartbeats are common and no treatment is needed most of the time.

Hi, yes, of course. You can increase the sperm count, share your reports with me first. Take homoeopathic medicine - schwabe's damiaplant/ thrice daily for 4 weeks. Diet and management: - eat many vegetables and whole grains, and buy organic foods when possible. Drink plenty of water. -reduce or eliminate junk food and switch to a diet low in fats, and high in protein. -increase your intake of foods rich in vitamin c (bell peppers, dark leafy greens, kiwifruit, broccoli, berries, citrus fruits, tomatoes, peas, and papayas) and antioxidants (cabbage, broccoli, asparagus, avocados, beetroot and spinach, nuts like pecans, walnuts, hazelnuts, pistachio, almonds, cashew nuts, peanut butter). -take in plenty of mineral zinc (walnuts, beans, oysters, beef, and chicken, beans, nuts, certain types of seafood such as crab and lobster, whole grains, fortified breakfast cereals, and dairy products). It's associated with increased semen volume, sperm count, and testosterone levels. -amino acids, traces of which can be found in meats, fruits, and vegetables, are believed to increase sperm count and keep the sperm from clumping. -folic acid (vitamin b9) found in cereals, green leafy vegetables, legumes, and orange juice may contribute to an increase for semen. -spend significant time in the sun so your body can synthesize vitamin d, and eat plenty of yogurt, skim milk, and salmon to boost your calcium intake. -include goji berries, ginseng, pumpkin seeds, walnuts, asparagus, bananas in your diet. -certain lifestyle habits, which stress your body and immune system, will lead to a lower sperm count. Refrain from smoking and alcohol in moderation. -stress can interfere with the hormones needed to assist in sperm production. -keep your weight in check. Being too large or too small can affect hormonal balance. Too much estrogen or too little testosterone will have a negative impact on your sperm count. -get a full 8 hours of sleep every night when you're working on upping your sperm count. -regular exercising keeps you fit and healthy, so don't forget to do it. Practice pranayam regularly for half an hour preferably in a garden early in the morning. Not to do these exercises within 4 hours after meals. One can have meals not within 15 minutes after finishing these exercises. These exercises are good for gaining and maintaining good health. Also, practice pelvic floor exercise or kegel exercise, consists of repeatedly contracting and relaxing the muscles that form part of the pelvic floor. In order to locate your pelvic muscles try to stop and begin the flow of urine as using the bathroom. You can perform kegel exercises with the empty bladder as exercising pelvic muscle with the full bladder might result in urinary tract infections.

Hi, Recurrent attacks of cold and cough in children are due to low immunity in their body. Added to it, there is hereditary factor also as the parents have allergic rhinitis. You can administer SWARNA BINDU PRASHANA for 24-30 months continuously which is administered on Pushya Nakshatra day of every month. This will help to boost up the immunity in the body. For more details, you can consult me privately.

Hello- Phimosis Stretching exercises For any treatment of phimosis that does not involve surgery, it will involve stretching the foreskin. These exercises should be conducted alongside the other natural remedies listed here.The purpose of phimosis stretching exercises is to the stretch the skin sufficiently so that it can move unimpeded over the penis glans, which is the head of the penis. These exercises take time and patience and absolutely should not be rushed as you could cause injury and scarring which would make the phimosis worse.phimosis stretching exercises First off, you must assess the size of the opening for the foreskin. Gently clasp the end of the foreskin while the penis is limp and pull it away from the body. Try to put a finger into the opening. If you can put a thumb in, do so. You do not need to insert the digit far as the purpose of inserting the digit is to get a purchase on the foreskin. Be careful not to insert your finger too far to avoid touching the glans which will be very painful to touch. With the help of your other hand repeat, see if you can get another finger or thumb in the opening, begin to stretch the foreskin laterally as in the picture above. If you can only get one digit into the hole, then you will have to make do. The point here is to stretch laterally the foreskin ring which is the narrowest part. Do not stretch the foreskin to the point that it is painful. This will cause scarring and damage to the skin, which will make you phimosis worse. These phimosis stretching exercises should be done for 5 minutes in the morning and again in the evening. It will take about a week before you notice any material change so be patient and do not rush. Doing long sessions will make little difference as the stretching will happen when the skin cells grow. The phimosis stretching exercises stimulate the growth, they do not actually stretch the skin. So it is more important to do frequent small sessions than infrequent, long sessions. Remember the objective at this stage is to begin the loosening of the foreskin. You must not try and force the gland through the foreskin as you may not be able to get it back in. The foreskin can become trapped like an elastic band behind the gland, restricting blood flow to the penis head. This condition is called Paraphimosis and can often require surgery to fix.

Dear Lybrate User, Asthma is preceded by the production of histamines in the blood. Histamine is produced due to the entrance of foreign particles in the body. The triggering cause behind the onset of asthma varies in every patient. A detailed case taking along with some blood test results are required to diagnose the proper underlying cause behind asthma. Please conduct a laboratory test of your blood for TC, DC, ESR & IgE. Revert back with the results & consult me privately via Lybrate. In the mean-time you can take Homoeopathic Mother Tincture GRINDELIA ROBUSTA Q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water.
