Yoga may not interfere with the normal menstrual cycle, but it advised not to do some Yoga exercises during periods. So check with the yoga teacher and do the right things. At the same time it is important to check with your doctor/ gynecologist at least once a year (routine medical check up with some basic tests ). If the doctor advises for extra tests like USG, then it can be done to rule out any problem. Be health conscious and adapt a healthy lifestyle. You can try Homeopathy also for any menstrual disorder or any other health problems as it is safe and gentle. You contact me if interested for further information.

Learn About Menstrual Disorders In Young Women

Menstruation is a barometer of a women's health. Any changes in the menstrual pattern of a woman could be a harbinger of serious underlying disease and should not be overlooked. However adolescent girls are a special case where menstrual pattern is variable and much different from Adult women. It is very common for teenaged girls who have recently started menstruating to have irregular periods. This period pattern is wrongly classified as 'period problems". At the same time one needs to understand that some of the real problems like period pain in young girls are often overlooked as "normal" when they could be associated with serious medical disorders.

Although menstrual disorders are fairly common in most young women, it may have an underlying cause which can be indicative of a serious issue. Therefore, it is recommended for young women to consult a gynecologist if any difficulties arise.

Symptoms Of Menstrual Disorders (Severe)

  1. Excessive abdominal pain
  2. Excessive vaginal pain
  3. Missed / irregular periods
  4. Painful periods

The severe symptoms are usually accompanied by mild symptoms such as:

  1. Irritability
  2. Weight loss
  3. Vomiting
  4. Headaches/back pain
  5. Fatigue
  6. Insomnia
  7. Diarrhea

PCOS and Menstrual Disorders

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is a common reason for women to experience irregular menstrual periods. PCOS occurs when there is an excess of male hormones (androgens) in the body which hinder the production and release of eggs in the ovaries, resulting in menstruation problems. Symptoms of PCOS are acne, hair loss and weight gain. Women with PCOS are 80% more likely to suffer from fertility issues later in life. Along with that, PCOS can result in high cholesterol and high blood pressure. One serious concern for women with PCOS is resistance to insulin which leads to diabetes.

Diet and menstrual disorders

Poor diet can also lead to menstrual complications. An extremely high fiber diet can result in less frequent ovulations and therefore irregular periods. A diet which is too low in fats and fatty acid can also result in abnormal menstrual patterns.

Stress and PCOS

Young women are often prone to immense stress. Stress is one of the primary reasons for delayed periods. Stress can cause minor complications in the hypothalamus which may have consequences in the levels of hormones in the body.

The presence of ovarian cysts in the vagina may be a cause for irregular or painful periods. Endometriosis can cause heavy bleeding and extreme pain. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.

Hi lybrate-user, please get a blood test called serum bhcg. If the test is positive then follow up. As it could be ectopic pregnancy which is life threatening. If test is negative then await period for 4-5 days.

I want to know about contraceptive pills after intercourse, how to use it when to use it how many days to use it because I want to do sex without using condom with my 19 year old girlfriend.

Dear , there is only one pill an I pill which she can take within 72 hours. But that pill should be kept for emergency use only. Try to use condom as it will prevent pregnancy and protection from sexually transmitted disease. However if you all don't want there is a tablet today which she can out 15 min before sex. Otherwise usual oral contraceptive pill for 21 days in a month followed by one week gap before starting second pack. Ovral or femilone.

Hi lybrate-user, While you can use some medicines to overcome irregular menstrual cycle, they may have undesirable side effects. But you can try natural home remedies for irregular periods. 1. Yoga: When you undertake yoga exercises, you are helping your body release endorphins which help the body deal with stress easily. It does not mean that you limit yourself to yoga alone since many types of exercises can be undertaken with the same or even better results. It all depends on how much your body can take and how much you are willing to do. You do not have to work out for hours on end. Rather, simply taking a few minutes to physically engage your body can do the trick. In fact, physical exercises that are too heavy also lead to irregular periods and should thus be avoided. 2. Dietary Changes: The solution to this problem is eating a healthy and balanced diet. However, while a balanced diet will provide you with the nutrients you need, you can eat specific foods that target the menstrual cycle to help in normalizing it. These foods include some of the most common home remedies for irregular periods such as: cinnamon, raw papaya, pineapples. 3. Eliminate Stress: Stress is one of the major causes of irregular periods and it can be solved easily. Some of the most common ways of eliminating or preventing stress include: / Trigger identification; the first step to eliminating or preventing stress is to identify exactly what causes it. Once you do, it would be much easier seeking a solution directed at the problem than having no direction in your pursuit of a stress-free life. / Good food; don’t always fulfil your cravings for sweet and salty foods as they are not the healthiest. A good diet will give you the energy you need to tackle stressful situations. / Exercising; already mentioned as one of the best home remedies for irregular periods, exercising may take different forms depending on your fitness targets, time available and financial position. / Meditation; you can find some still and quiet time through meditation which has been proven to be a very important stress reliever with scientific evidence. / Enough sleep; sleep is one of the most ignored aspects of the body. Very few people know exactly how many hours they need to be asleep to stay healthy. While sleeping too much has its effects on the body, too little sleep is more harmful to your health than most people know. 4. Ginger: Ginger, a natural herb that everyone uses, can help in dealing with menstrual pain and also regulating menstrual cycles. It is highly beneficial since it promotes menstruation and thus can help in dealing with irregular periods or missed periods. Hope this helps. Good Luck.

For taking pregnancy blood test has it to be done empty stomach or any other specific requirements?

For taking pregnancy blood test has it to be done empty stomach or any other specific requirements?
To increase the accuracy - or more precisely to increase the possibility of receiving a positive test result earlier - it is advised to use a first morning sample when testing for pregnancy. Why? Unless you have urinated in the middle of the night, first morning urine should exhibit a higher concentration of the the pregnancy hormone, hCG. This means you can get an accurate result sooner than with other samples collected during the day or evening. Typically, we advise "holding your urine" for about 4 hours before collecting a urine sample. Frequent urination can prevent a build-up in the concentration of hCG in a urine sample, meaning that the hCG level in the urine sample will be low (and you might receive a negative result when, in fact, you may be pregnant. Along with holding your urine, you should not consume an exorbitant amount of liquids (which might cause frequent urination or dilute a urine sample). However, do not dehydrate yourself - just drink the normal amount of water you would anyway. For blood test any time you go for test. Bottom line - use a first morning urine sample to test and thereby increase the odds of detecting pregnancy sooner.

Normal delivery is a natural process and all pregnancies are designed to be delivered normally. It happens without any precautions. There are no ways to prevent cesarean section. People will advise you to do clean the floor and all that but all that is not proven to be effective. No extra precaution is needed for delivering normally. There are certain things which are not in your hand i. E. Position of the baby, passage of motion by the baby inside uterus, amount of fluid by the side of baby. All these factors and many more can decide your mode of delivery. At this stage of pregnancy there is not much exercise you can do but make sure you keep moving around which will help the blood circulation to flow.

Pregnancy and diabetes: Why lifestyle counts

Pregnancy and diabetes presents unique challenges. Consider the goal ? tight blood sugar control ? and what you can do to achieve it.

When you have diabetes ? either type 1 or type 2 ? pregnancy presents unique challenges. Naturally, you're concerned about the effect diabetes might have on your health and your baby's health. There's much you can do to promote a healthy pregnancy, however. Here's what you need to know about pregnancy and diabetes ? and delivering a healthy baby.

Pregnancy and diabetes:
Your diabetes health care team likely includes an endocrinologist or other diabetes specialist, a diabetes educator and a registered dietitian. As your pregnancy progresses, your health care team can help you manage your blood sugar level and adjust your diabetes treatment plan as needed.

The goal: Tight blood sugar control

Controlling your blood sugar level before and during pregnancy is the best way to prevent diabetes complications. Good blood sugar control during pregnancy can:

Reduce the risk of miscarriage and stillbirth. Good blood sugar control reduces the risk of miscarriage and stillbirth ? primary concerns for pregnancy and diabetes.
Reduce the risk of premature birth. The better your blood sugar control, the less likely you are to go into preterm labor.
Reduce the risk of birth defects. Good blood sugar control during early pregnancy greatly reduces your baby's risk of birth defects, particularly those affecting the brain, spine and heart.
Reduce the risk of excess fetal growth. If you have poor blood sugar control, extra glucose can cross the placenta. This triggers your baby's pancreas to make extra insulin, which can cause your baby to grow too large (macrosomia). A large baby makes vaginal delivery difficult and puts the baby at risk of injury during birth.
Prevent complications for mom. Good blood sugar control reduces the risk of high blood pressure, preeclampsia ? which is high blood pressure that begins after 20 weeks of pregnancy ? and other potentially serious pregnancy complications.
Prevent complications for baby. Sometimes babies of mothers who have diabetes develop low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) shortly after birth because their own insulin production is too high. Good blood sugar control can help promote a healthy blood sugar level for your baby, as well as healthy levels of calcium and magnesium in the blood. Good blood sugar control also helps prevent a yellowish discoloration of the skin and eyes (jaundice) after birth.

Could be some other reason like anxiety, emotional stress, guilt or lastly any diet change or change in physical activity, but to be safe get your thyroid tested and an ultrasound sound done to rule out pcos, if all is good you can safely take pills to induce your period from me or any good gynaecologist.

Most parents believe that the breast milk is insuffiecient. Take weight of the child on a digital weighing machine prior to feeding and immediately after feed. This will convince you that child has got enough milk. . However if the milk is truly less, you can start undiluted, unsweetened boiled cow's milk with katori and spoon.
