Yes, you have to do the scan again after a week and see whether heart beat is there. Because if the ovulation has happened little late and if you have conceived late then heartbeat also will apper late. Sp please wait and see.

My period is missed 28th Feb and I will check the pregnancy test but its negative? So what I can do ?

Vaidya Visharad
Ayurveda, Narnaul
Hello Dear,Periods occur when the egg formed during each menstrual cycle in the female body is not fertilized and hence ejected out of the reproductive system along with blood and several other tissue cells. The duration of each menstrual cycle is about 28 days Most women will experience their monthly period right from the time they are 13 to the time they are 50. For many women, their monthly period is nothing more than an annoyance; but other women may suffer some problems. Visit us at www.Malhotraayurveda.Com

Hi lybrate-user she should visit gynaecologist first for examination and if everything is normal then she can terminate pregnancy with pills. It's better to do it under local gynaecologist if abortion is incomplete it may require surgical evacuation.

Most probably your ovaries have been removed. In that case, we have to review whether you need hormone therapy or not.

Hello, If you are breastfeeding, then you are unlikely to be pregnant as it acts as a natural contraception. However, do a urine pregnancy test to be double sure. Also, use contraception next time during intercourse for at least two years to avoid pregnancy.

Hi lybrate-user. You need to start losing weight right away. Running, yoga, dance along with a healthy diet will help. But before starting any exercise, please speak to your cardiologist as you seem to have some heart condition.

I've been married for 1 year and not using protection for a month now. The due date for my periods was on 10th March. Menses are always regular for me with heavy flow. But this month I passed due date and on 12th March I can hardly see two to three droplets of blood. Iam not sure if this is periods or not? Could this be any sign of pregnancy?

Some time due to hormone upset dates may change by one or two days or more. But since you were not using any protection it is better to do a pregnancy checkup at home.

Hi. Bleeding per vagina can be due to many reasons, will have to look into the matter. If you have got some investigations done, share the reports with me. Meantime, start with homoeopathic medicines: Schwabe's Five Phos./ thrice daily and Pulsatilla 1M/ one dose once only - take these for 1 month. Revert me back with your status. Take care.

12 Amazing Sources of Healthy Fats!

Post Graduate in Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Ahmedabad
12 Amazing Sources of Healthy Fats!

After a whole lot of research and even more controversy, fats are back in our diets. But choosing foods with “good” (saturated and unsaturated) fat is now the main problem. So to help you with your diet, here are 12 foods that contain healthy fats:

  1. Olive oil: Olive oil contains secoiridoids and oleic acid which protect the body from diabetes, cancer and other heart diseases. It also slows down aging on the cellular level.
  2. Fish: Fishes such as anchovies, salmon or sardines contain essential Omega-3 fatty acids (a type of monounsaturated fat), which are important for healthy brain function.
  3. Avocados: Avocados contain monounsaturated fats that reduce bad cholesterol.
  4. Eggs: Eggs are a good source of Omega-3 fatty acids, and eating them for breakfast keeps you full and satisfied.
  5. Nuts: Nuts are a good source of unsaturated fatty acids, which makes them a good snack to munch on.
  6. Nut butter: Nut butter actually keeps you full and satisfied, which curbs down cravings. Just make sure to read the labels carefully because the extra sugar and salt in them can be harmful.
  7. Coconut oil: Coconut oil contains lauric acid which is anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory.
  8. Dark chocolate: Dark chocolate is actually good for your cardiovascular health. Chocolate triggers the good bacteria in your gut to produce anti-inflammatory compounds which are good for strengthening the immune system.
  9. Greek yoghurt: Full-fat yoghurt is, surprisingly, good for you; just don’t forget to read the label. Sometimes they may contain trans-fat which is the real villain.
  10. Seeds: Seeds are so small, that they are often overlooked as the powerhouses of nutrition that they really are. Seeds such as sunflower seeds, chia seeds, flax, hemp and pumpkin seeds are rich in omega-3 fatty acids which help reduce inflammations.
  11. Soybeans: Soybeans, besides being an excellent source of proteins, also contain essential fatty acids. You can substitute meat with soy products such as tofu and other dairy products with soy milk.
  12. Cheese: For a long time, the healthy diet’s number one villain has been cheese. While processed and packaged cheese used in most junk food nowadays are extremely unhealthy, you can add aged cheeses such as Parmesan, or simple cottage cheese in your daily diet. Cheese has essential fatty acids which actually help you digest vegetables better. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dietitian-nutritionist and ask a free question.

Is there any chance of pregnancy if I don't use condom but ejaculate outside vagina of my girlfriend? is it safe enough.

Is there any chance of pregnancy if I don't use condom but ejaculate outside vagina of my girlfriend? is it safe enough.
Even a single drop of semen is sufficient to cause pregnancy. Ejaculation outside the vagina, but near private parts may arise a situation that sperm may enter vagina a and cause pregnancy. Better use condom.
