Ulipristal acetate (known as ella in the US and Ellaone in Europe) was approved as an ECP in Europe in early 2009 and in the US in August 2010. It works for up to 120 hours after intercourse.[6] It prevents pregnancy by delaying or inhibiting ovulation and inhibiting follicle rupture.[11] Watson Pharmaceuticals announced the availability of ella in the United States on December 1, 2010, in retail pharmacies, clinics and one online pharmacy, KwikMed.[12]

Hello- Men and women both have some dissimilarities regarding their pleasure points in the body. Men erotic body points are only concentrated around penis and testis but unlike men, females have the points distributed almost all over the body including clitoris, nipples, neck, inner thighs, back, feet, etc. So its is natural to have this feeling for a female during sex.

Without medicines the failure rate of family planning methods is high meaning many get pregnant even if they don't want. Condoms, intra-uterine contraceptive device (iucd or loop), safety period, coitus interruptus are methods you can learn in details.

Hello Ms. Lybrate-user, it's just been one year that you are trying for pregnancy. In one year about 70% women conceive and in 2 years about 80-90%. So if your tubes and other parameters are fine you should try for a few more months before anything invasive. Laparoscopy is a surgery where camera is passed through a small cut to look at pelvic structures and any abnormalities like adhesions etc and do necessary procedure simultaneously if possible. All the best.

Nutritional Deficiency - Can it Cause Depression?

MBBS, Post graduate in diabetology
General Physician, Howrah
Nutritional Deficiency - Can it Cause Depression?

Depression can be caused because of many reasons. However, it can get worse or be triggered due to nutritional deficiency. However nutritional deficiencies and depression act in a vicious cycle. Depressed people often receive less or improper food which leads to malnutrition which again aggravate depression. Thus, both conditions should be treated simultaneously. Read further to know how:

  1. Omega-3 fatty acids: An Omega-3 unsaturated fat deficiency can cause depression. That shows exactly how much fish, salmon, halibut or flaxseeds and walnuts we have to expend to be at an ideal level. These basic minerals lessen aggravation and take up a basic part in our mental health, particularly memory and disposition.
  2. Vitamin D: Vitamin D deficiency is a noteworthy problem that specialists and general physicians perceive to be dangerous. This lack has been connected to depression, dementia and mental imbalance. The majority of our Vitamin D levels drop off during the fall and winter months, since daylight is the best source of vitamin D.
  3. Magnesium: Odds are great that you are magnesium inadequate since a lot of people are. Sugar, phosphoric acid, perpetual anxiety, anti-infection agents and diuretics contain magnesium. Magnesium is infrequently alluded to as the anxiety counteracting agent.
  4. Vitamin B complex: B vitamins like vitamin B6 and vitamin B12 have some great medical advantages, including decreased heart diseases and healthy skin and nails. Again, a vitamin B deficiency may affect your emotional wellness. Every one in four depressed or stressed woman suffers from vitamin B12 deficiency.
  5. Folate: Individuals with a low folate level have just a seven percent reaction to treatment with antidepressants. Those with high folate levels have a reaction of 44 percent. That is the reason a lot of specialists are currently endorsing a folate called Deplin to treat dejection.
  6. Amino acids: Amino acids are the building blocks of protein that help your mind work efficiently. An amino acid deficiency may make you feel slow, foggy, unfocused, and discouraged. Great sources of amino acids include meat, eggs, beans, seeds, and nuts.
  7. Iron: Iron deficiency is truly common in women. Around 20 percent of the women and 50 percent of pregnant women are iron deficient. Just 3 percent of men are iron deficient. The most widely recognized type of side effect is the decreasing number of red platelets brought on by the lack of iron. The side effects include weakness, concentration issues and a foggy mind.
  8. Zinc: Zinc is used by more proteins (a person has more than 300) than some other minerals. It is important to most of the body’s systems. It also helps our stomach to determine what food items or nutrients to keep and what to dispose off.

Therefore, it is very important for a person to consume the right amount of nutrients that a human needs. Their deficiency not only causes depression, but also many other diseases and illnesses.

Fertility: Nicotine Changes Sperm, and Not for the Better

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.

The condition is termed as Metrorrhagia also known as the dysfunctional uterine bleeding is a problem that women suffer from.Basically, this condition is characterized by bleeding episodes (mainly spotting but can lead to severe bleeding) outside the menstrual phase. Metrorrhagia is considered a symptom of a possible health problem but shouldn’t be handled as a serious health problem right away. One should not panic. Some of the main cause are----------- • Endometrial hyperplasia. • Uterine cancer.. • Ruptured polyps. • Cervical dysplasia. • Cervicitis. • Abortion or miscarriage. • Infection. • Hormonal imbalance. • Coagulation problems. • Use of contraception. So consult a Gynaecologist for physical examination.

If she has missed her regular period it is likely that she might be pregnant. In that case do a simple urine pregnancy test at home. If it's negative, pregnancy is less likely and she might have missed periods due to another cause. If the test is positive chances of pregnancy are high, in that case consult a gynaecologist without delay. Get examined and investigated in details to know exact duration of pregnancy to decide the most safe and effective method of termination of pregnancy if so desired. Do not attempt to terminate pregnancy by over the counter medications without a doctors advise. That would do more harm than good.

You won't feel anything about foetus at 6 weeks. Please do not be over imaginative. Can you send your or your's husband's mail address? I can send you a booklet (at no cost) which may help you with scientific knowledge about development of a foetus during pregnancy.
