There are many tiny follicles in peripheral part of ovary. Mostly it occurs in a fatty patients. It hampers regular menses bcoz there is no ovulation. You have to take medicines for that course for 3 months at least. Change your dietary habits. Avoid junk foods, reduce weight etc along with medicines.

Yes she has very high chance to be pregnant as she has missed her periods. Please get urine pregnancy test done asap. If it is negative keep repeating it every week. Menses can also get delayed by hormonal changes. If she is pregnant, till 7 weeks of pregnancy it can be aborted with abortion pill, which you can get only after visiting a gynecologist.

Hi, I pill delays periods. There are chances of'more than normal' bleeding during periods after taking I pill. There may be vomiting-like-feeling, vomiting, stomach pain for some. I pill definitely delays periods, so don't worry about that. If she don't get periods within 15 days of taking I pill, she should undergo pregnancy test.

Fast Food - Is It All Bad?

Fast Food - Is It All Bad?

Fast Food, by and large, is detrimental to the health. Multiple studies have shown this in the past decade. It aggravates many diseases and is responsible for medical conditions such as obesity, respiratory problems, cardiovascular diseases and hypertension. Amidst multiple negative qualities, many fast foods are actually not that bad for the body. If taken in right proportions, some of the fast foods mentioned below can be extremely useful for the body.

  1. Popcorn: Apart from being one of the best accompaniments for movies, popcorns greatly helps in curbing hunger. Home-made popcorns have fewer calories and are a very good antioxidant. The good part about popcorn is the fact that it is not heavy as other fast foods and doesn’t make you feel lethargic. However, it should be ensured that more than one bowl of popcorn is not consumed at a time.
  2. Baked snacks: Baked snacks are a much-preferred choice in the snacks category these days. Owing to their low fat and carb content, they not only serve as tasty snacks but are good for the overall health as well. The fact that baked snacks are made up of whole wheat, makes it a more attractive offering. Baked snacks, when prepared with a dash of spice, can be a good alternative to other unhealthy snacks in the market.
  3. Processed Cheese: Processed cheese contains Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). The latter is found to have anti-carcinogenic properties. A recent study showed that the CLA found in processed cheese is much more than other dairy products. Processed cheese is also a good antioxidant. This being said, too much intake of processed cheese can be harmful to the body.
  4. Dark chocolate brownie: If dark chocolate is consumed with whole wheat brownie, it acts as a good ingredient for patients suffering from cardiovascular diseases. When consumed with a few nuts, dark chocolate brownie becomes a power house of fibre. People with a sweet tooth can find this preparation a good alternative for other fast food items such as chocolate, ice cream and pastries.
  5. Chocolate Bars: This is another treat for a person with a sweet tooth. Dark chocolate bars are rich in antioxidants. It brings down blood pressure level and is found to be effective for the heart. This should not be consumed more than 100 grams per day.
  6. Stout Beer: Dry stout beer with its rich creamy content is as good as a dose of aspirin. This form of liquor improves blood circulation level and reduces the risk of cardiac arrests. One pint of this beer every alternate day will serve the purpose of quenching your alcohol thrust while ensuring that no harm is caused to your health. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Take Eupatrium perf 200, 5 drops thrice daily. Take Antifebrinum 3x, 2 tabs , thrice daily. Take Alfavena malt, 1 tsf, thrice daily. Drink lots of water and take light homemade food like dalia and khichdi, avoid oily, spicy, fried, junk and cold drinks.

Tantrums of a 3 years old child. Is she your only child, 1st born or jealous and insecure in a big fat joint family that believes in comparisons? anyway attention deficit etc are western concepts and have been belivers of discipline in kids but too much of it can back fire. Put her in a play school or a regular school at 3 and leave her alone to get her mind open up like a parachute, kids are a lot smarter than we presume. You will have to be around for basics but like other kids, she too needs her space, which she will get for sure, while she's away from her over protective mother for few hours a day. Don't stop communication and do get to know her friends also. Try for few days and there's no medicines for hyper behaviour of kids.

Better to undergo once again test related aftre consulting gynaecologist. If tests come with no risk reported, then you can take any alternative medicine for not getting it repeatedly. Evn if, reports come with some thing not normal also, based on the intensity, diagnosis, you can follow homeot/t, {though temporarily you can take allopathy for the time being}.

If a women’s menstrual cycle varies from 26days to 31days cycle, The shortest cycle (26days) minus18days=8th day. The longest cycle (31days) minus 10days=21st day Thus, 8th to 21st day of each cycle counting from first day of menstrual period is considered as fertile period. That is UNSAFE PERIOD during which you should not have it. Period other than this fertile period in a menstrual cycle is considered as SAFE PERIOD.
