It is perfectly fine doing it regularly for conceiving. But avoid during her cycle. Most fertile period for conceiving is after her periods are over till next cycle.

She must be suffering from vaginitis which is the infection of vagina. She should be examined by the gynecologist to find out what kind of vaginitis, based on which she can be treated.

I had sex with my girlfriend today. Today was the last day of her periods. Her periods stopped today morning and we had sex in evening today. I had sex without condom but I didn't discharge in her. I gave her I-Pill also after 1 hour . Can she be pregnant ?

Hi lybrate-user. There was no need for I pill when her periods had ended just today. Casual and frequent use of I pill can harm her hormonal imbalance and alter her next 2-3 cycles. Please avoid such casual use of I pill without medical supervision. Please understand that they are hormone containing pills which have side effects. 3 days before and after a period are absolutely safe and there is no risk of pregnancy anyways. There was no need of the I pill.

Hi, I think you should do a ultrasound to confirm if you are pregnant or not. Sometimes implantation bleeding can happen till 12 weeks of pregnancy. So, it is possible that you can bleed while you are pregnant. Take the medicines like progesterone and strict bed rest should be there if you are pregnant. Hope I have answered your question. Regards

Hi Gluconorm g1 is safe during pregnancy?

MBBS, MD
Gynaecologist,
Gluconorm-SR ( by Lupin pharma) tablet contains Metformin ( 500 mg or 1 gm), which is a blood sugar lowering medicine, used in Diabetes type II, gestational diabetes and PCOD. It is a Pregnancy Category- B drug, which means animal studies show no risk and human studies not available, or animal studies show minor risk and human studies show no risk, and so it may be acceptable during pregnancy. On the other hand, GlucoNorm tablet by River Pharmacy ( available in India as Eurepa tablet) contains Repaglinide which is another blood sugar lowering medicine used in Type II Diabetes, marketed in three forms i.E. 0.5 mg, 1 mg & 2 mg. It is a Pregnancy Category- C drug, which means animal studies show risk and human studies not available, or neither human nor animal studies done, and so use with caution only if benefits outweigh risks in pregnancy. This one better to avoid.

MBBS

What is the reason behind getting sick and very much ill during the periods and in the age of more than sixty.
There are many cyclical hormonal changes going in during your monthly cycles and at the time of periods you feel discomfort and pain because of congestion and uterine spasms because of that and after the age of 60 there are old age changes coming on in the body which can give you different symptoms in different people that is why it is very important to keep an active and healthy life style.

Paneer Vs Tofu - Find Out Which is Better For Your Body?

Net Qualified In Community Health And Social Medicine, M.Sc - Dietetics and Community Nutrition

Paneer Vs Tofu - Find Out Which is Better For Your Body?

Paneer Vs Tofu - Find Out Which is Better For Your Body?

Paneer and Tofu - the similar looking foods come with their own sets of nutrients, along with being extremely beneficial at warding off diseases. In terms of preparation, while paneer is made from curdled buffalo milk, tofu is prepared from soy milk. 

Here's a nutrient guide to help you pick one over the other.

1. Iron content
When it comes to the iron content of these two foods, tofu comes out as the winner. Tofu contains 5.4mg of iron per 100gm, while paneer's iron content is just 0.1mg per 100gm. For this reason, the soy product is extremely beneficial for individuals who suffer from anaemia as it is high in iron content and can help in maintaining optimum levels of blood haemoglobin. 

2. Protein content
Especially for vegetarians, paneer is one of the best sources of protein. Every 100 gm of this dairy product is found to contain 18.3 gm of protein. In contrast, tofu offers only 6.9 gm of protein. If you are planning to put on weight or pursue a muscle building regimen, paneer is a source of protein that you can consider. It aids in muscle building as well as reduces muscle damage caused by wear and tear. 

3. Fat content
Along with high protein content, paneer is also known to come with a high fat content. Every 100gm of paneer contains about 20.8gm of fat content. Tofu, on the other hand, contains only 2.7gm of fat every 100gm. Due to its low fat content, tofu is an excellent health option for weight loss. 

4. The 3 Cs: carbohydrate, calcium and calorie content
In terms of carbohydrate, calcium and calorie content, both tofu and paneer clock different figures. 
Even though paneer is made from milk, its levels of carbohydrate are low. Since the carbohydrate content in paneer is about 1.2gm, it is a friendly food option for diabetics. Tofu, on the other hand, has a carbohydrate content that is double to that of paneer (2.4gm). 

Calcium content is extremely high in paneer with every 100gm of paneer offering 208mg of calcium. Due to its high calcium count, paneer is extremely useful to build strong teeth and bones. In contrast to the high calcium content of paneer, tofu records about 130mg of calcium. 

Lastly, both tofu and paneer have different calorie counts with paneer reporting a higher calorie count than tofu. For every 100gm of serving of tofu and paneer, tofu has 62 calories and paneer comes with 265 calories. Since it has a low calorie count, tofu is the perfect weight loss food. 
In terms of which one is a healthier food option, it depends on certain factors. If you are planning to lose weight, tofu is a better option. 

But if you're planning to build muscles, paneer presents itself as a better option. This is because paneer contains high calcium and protein content. Keeping the pros and cons in mind, you can choose to include either one or both in your diet. Although when it comes to paneer, moderation is the key.

High Blood Pressure - How it Affects Your Sex Life?

MD, BHMS
Sexologist, Mumbai
High Blood Pressure - How it Affects Your Sex Life?

High blood pressure is a condition in which the pressure of the blood against the artery wall is high enough to cause health problems, including heart disease. No symptoms may be noticed in a person for years but the damage to the blood vessels and to your heart continues. High blood pressure can have an impact on your sex life. Although sexual activity does not lead to any possible threats to your health but high blood pressure can affect the pleasure you would have otherwise derived from sex.

In Men
High blood pressure leads to the wearing out of the lining of blood vessels and causes arteries to narrow and harden that decreases the blood flow. This results in decreased blood flow to the penis. In case of some men, this decreased blood flow makes it difficult for them to achieve and maintain an erection. This problem is called erectile dysfunction.

High blood pressure may also interfere with ejaculation and be a cause for low libido. The medications that are prescribed for treating high blood pressure may lead to this condition.

In Women
Just as in the case of men, high blood pressure results in the decreased flow of blood to the vagina in case of women. This may cause problems like low libido, vaginal dryness, or complexities in achieving orgasm. Sexual dysfunction in women results in stress, anxiety and even relationship issues. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.

C- Section - Understanding the Procedure and Risks

Advanced Infertility, MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
C- Section - Understanding the Procedure and Risks

C-section or Caesarean section is a surgery performed to deliver a baby. The baby is taken out from the abdomen through an incision in the abdominal wall. This surgery is performed when there is some sort of physical difficulty in natural childbirth through the vagina. Other reasons for performing a C-section are when the mother is carrying more than one baby, or the health of the baby is in danger. It could also be because of an undesirable fetal position, or when the mother is physically unable to push the baby out of the uterus.

Procedure followed in C- Section

The procedure is most often done when the mother is in her senses and awake. However, epidural or spinal anaesthesia is provided to numb the body from chest to the feet, before the surgery is performed.

An incision is made on the lower abdomen, above the pubic area. A cut is made through the uterus and amniotic sac. The baby is pulled out from this opening. The umbilical cord is cut and cleaned. The fluids are cleaned from the baby’s mouth and nose. The infant’s breathing rate, heart rate and other vitals are kept under observation.

Recovery from a C-section can take several weeks. The stitch wounds need to heal, including the recovery of pelvic muscles. It is important to walk around and do some very light exercises to boost the healing procedure. Doctors may prescribe painkillers in some cases and advice on effective post-operative care. Though the surgical procedure is quite safe now, with the use of highly advanced technology, there are risks that cannot be entirely ignored.

Risks associated with C-section

  1. Infections: Any surgery has some risk of infection associated to it. In the case of a C-section, an infection can occur around the site of incision that may rapidly spread in the uterine wall and other internal pelvic organs.

  2. Haemorrhage: Blood refuses to clot and dangerously high quantity of blood is lost in the process. In such a case, it requires immediate transfusion and intensive care.

  3. Injuries: The mother or the baby, both have a risk of getting injured during the surgery. Although these are rare, but the infant may suffer nicks and cuts while being manually pulled out from the womb. Other organs of the mother located near the pelvis may suffer minor or major wounds.

After the C-section, the mother and child will be retained in the hospital for 2 to 3 days, under intense care and constant monitoring. It is important to exercise and take the medications as advised by the physician to prevent any complication. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist and ask a free question.

Fibroids may cause red degeneration and pain in midpregnancy, breech presentation if they are inside uterine cavity, placenta lower down, and preterm labour. But some fibroids which grow totally on outer wall of uterus may not cause any side effect at all. Most probably urs in in the mid/ inner wall of uterus due to which Caesarean has been recommended.

Fertility: Nicotine Changes Sperm, and Not for the Better
Men who smoke are less likely to make a woman pregnant than nonsmokers, and the more they smoke the worse their chances are, a new study finds. According to doctors, men trying to have children will benefit if they smoke less. Women have chemical receptors to nicotine on their eggs like those on sperm so, they said, smoking is likely to lessen ‪‎fertility for them, too.

Nutrition tips for Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)

Homeopath, Belgaum
Nutrition tips for Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)

If you have Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), eating well can help manage some of the long term complications of this condition. Read on to learn about the best nutrition choices you can make if you have PCOS.
What is PCOS?
PCOS is a condition that affects women. It is caused by an imbalance of a woman’s sex hormones which may lead to:
Menstrual cycle changes
Skin problems such as acne
Increased hair growth on the face and body
Cysts in the ovaries and
Trouble getting pregnant
PCOS affects up to 10 percent of women. It may be genetic since women with PCOS are likely to have a mother or sister with PCOS. Women are usually diagnosed in their 20s or 30s, or sometimes when they are teenagers.
PCOS and weight gain
If you have PCOS, your body makes too much androgen. Androgen is often called the "male hormone," but small amounts are made in women’s bodies too. If your body makes too much androgen, it can lead to weight gain, especially around the belly area. This type of weight gain can increase the risk of:
High cholesterol
High blood pressure
High blood sugar
High triglycerides
Heart disease and
Diabetes

Tips for maintaining a healthy weight with PCOS
There is no specific diet that can prevent or treat PCOS. However, eating well and being active can help manage some of long term complications of PCOS. The good news is that losing anywhere from 5 to 10 percent of your body weight can help with weight-related health problems.
The best eating plan if you have PCOS is one that helps you manage your weight and also lower the long term risks of diabetes and heart disease. This plan should be low in saturated fat and high in fibre.
Choose better fats:
Too much saturated and trans fat in the diet can lead to weight gain, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Limit foods that contain saturated and trans fats. Instead of these bad fats, choose smaller amounts of healthy unsaturated fats, which are found in vegetable oils like canola and olive oil, avocado and nuts. Aim for a total of 30 to 45mL (2 to 3 Tbsp) of healthy fats each day. You can learn more about choosing healthy fats here.
Increase fibre:
Eating more fibre can help maintain blood sugar levels and lower your cholesterol. Plus, fibre helps make you feel full, so you tend to eat less. This can help with weight control. Aim for 21 to 25 grams per day. Here are some high fibre foods to try:
Fruit – especially berries, pears, oranges, figs, kiwi
Vegetables – especially peas, spinach, squash and broccoli
Whole grains – such as oats, brown rice, whole wheat, quinoa, barley and buckwheat
Legumes – such as lentils, chickpeas, soybeans and kidney beans
Cereals made with wheat bran, psyllium or whole grain oats
Nuts and seeds – such as almonds, flax, sunflower seeds
Enjoy protein:
Similar to fibre, protein also helps you feel full for longer, so you will eat less. This is a great way to help control your weight. Make sure that you have some protein at every meal and snack like chicken, turkey, beef or fish. Or, try vegetarian options such as legumes, soy or a quarter cup of nuts or seeds. Milk and low fat yogurt are also good sources of protein.
Foods to limit:
Some foods cause weight gain if you eat them often. Choose fewer foods that are high in sugar, salt, refined flour and fat such as:
White rice, pasta or bread
Baked goods
Regular soda
Candy and chocolate and
Salty snacks
Be active:
Try to get at least 2 ½ hours of exercise each week. Start with 10 minutes of activity and work up to longer times as your body adjusts. Review the Canadian Physical Activity Guidelines for activity ideas. Even if you don’t lose weight, exercise can help control your blood sugar and cholesterol levels and lower your risk for heart disease and diabetes.
