You should continue your iron, calcium and multivitamin treatment, and add desi ghee in your food. You can start your day with pranayama.

Super Fact of the Day: Building New Muscle is Quicker Than Losing It!

This is a good news. It takes twice the time to lose new muscle if you stop working out than what it took to gain it. That's because it’s easier and quicker to build new muscle tissue. But that's no reason to skip your workout!

There is no cure for herpes simplex. The good news is that sores often clear without treatment. Many people choose to treat herpes simplex because treatment can relieve symptoms and shorten an outbreak. Most people are treated with an antiviral medicine. An antiviral cream or ointment can relieve the burning, itching, or tingling. An antiviral medicine that is oral (pills) or intravenous (shot) can shorten an outbreak of herpes. Prescription antiviral medicines approved for the treatment of both types of herpes simplex include: Acyclovir Famciclovir Valacyclovir

Yes it is safe. Minimum requirement is 400 mcg but there is tablet with that strength. You can take becosules safely. Other preparations have 5 mg of folic acid which should be combined with vit b12.

I m 22 years of age. Recently I did sex with my fiancee and he told me that i m not a virgin. But I never done sex before. Then I checked my vagina with my fingers and I also have doubt that i m not a virgin because my vagina's hole is too big and I never felt pain when he entered his penis at the first time. I m I virgin or not?

Sir I am a girl and I see something small thing stone like in my left breast. It sometimes gets big sometimes seems small but sir I feel so pain. please sir suggest me what I have to do?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
It looks like it is fibroadenoma and as you said it is painful, it should be removed after initial investigation like mammography and sonography of the breast and/or FNAC. Fibroadenomas are not cancer and don’t increase the risk of developing breast cancer. They occur because of an increased sensitivity to the female hormone estrogen. A fibroadenoma usually has a smooth rubbery feel and can move easily under the skin. They are usually painless, but some people may feel pain. It is very common can occur in numbers. It can occur at any age. Most are about 1 to 3cm in size but occasionally, it can grow to more than 5cm. Most fibroadenomas stay the same size. Some get smaller and some eventually disappear over time. Sometimes surgery is required to remove large fibroadenomas.

No doing yoga in proper way will not affect you anyway in conception. But do not do strenuous exercise once you conceive.

If she had regular cycles for last 6 months, and is expecting her cycle tomorrow, it is unlikely she can get pregnant today. It would be extremely rare if she got pregnant due to chance delay in ovulation in this cycle. If she is already on medicines to postpone periods she should stop it after 2-3 days.

I am 31 year old. I am being treated for pcod and prescribed dianne35. I had unprotected sex with my bf on 5th day of my cycle. He had not ejaculated inside me. I started the pills from 6th day of the cycle. My cycle is of 34 days. I have not got my my periods. Is there a possibility of me getting pregnant. What should I do? I got spot bleeding along with pain in limbs and stomach and then no flow no pain. Am I pregnant. How far is home test kit reliable?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology

dianne35 is the contraceptive pill with non-contraceptive benifits as well.. sexual intercourse on 5th day of cycle..its less likely to get pregnant. but sill if your periods are missed/delayed you must do home test UPT because in PCOd there may be chances of irregular ovulation

Hello lybrate-user, some irregularities in periods are normal after getting married and it happens because of sudden hormonal changes that your body undergoes. However, just to be sure, you can undergo a urine pregnancy test at your home.
