Appears to be hormonal imbalance. Start daily exercise& get an ultrasound of pelvis done for any cysts.

My first abortion left me with cysts and fibrous substance on both my ovaries and my uterus became small, what should I do. Pls suggest me something immediately.

Hai. Abortion has nothing to do with cyst formation in the ovaries. Its the other way round. You may have polycystic ovaries which could be the cause for delayed conception and early abortion. You require a few investigations and management of PCO before trying again. Best widhes.

Abstract
Objective:

To evaluate the effects that modern shoes have on gait and lower extremity joint loads in osteoarthritis (oa).

Methods:
Gait analyses were performed on 75 subjects with knee oa while they were wearing their everyday walking shoes and while they were walking barefoot. The trials involved optoelectronic detection of external markers during ambulation over a multi component force plate, and were matched for speed. Comparisons were made of gait parameters and joint loading during trials in which the subjects walked while wearing shoes and while barefoot.

Results:
Peak joint loads at the hips and knees significantly decreased during barefoot walking, with an 11.9% reduction noted in the knee adduction moment. Stride, cadence, and range of motion at the lower extremity joints also changed significantly, but these changes could not explain the reduction in the peak joint loads.

Conclusion:
Shoes may detrimentally increase loads on the lower extremity joints. Once factors responsible for the differences in loads between with-shoe and barefoot walking are better delineated, modern shoes and walking pra.

Hb 6gm is too less. She needs to build her haemoglobin fast. She would probably require blood transfusion and simultaneously the cause of anaemia is to be investigated. There are many complications of such low hb. Her hemoglobin ideally should have been above 11gms.

Since you had unprotected sex 10 days after periods, it is better to check her pregnancy test, if she has crossed 40days. You can check by urine itself in any lab. If positive for pregnancy consult me privately for further mangement.

You can have sex by asking your hubby to use condome for a while. Say till 15sept thats all. After proper immunisation specially if vaccine is puchased from cold chain stores. If injectiona are not kept in refrigrator for more than 4 hrs or if electricity is not there for sufficient time, it may damged partially. So take care.

Hi Navdeep. Unprotected sex even if you need ejaculate inside her can lead to pregnancy specially mid cycle. Even the precum has sperms which is enough to make a woman pregnant. Hope this information has been helpful.

You should share it with your doctor. If there is any complication develop in this pregnancy the doctor will be able to correlate the reason for the complication. For example if the cervix is scarred and does not dilate may be due to the injury to the Cs during previous abortion operation. This is an example only. Better to shRe it with doctor so that she can anticipate the problems that might occur and look for its specifically and be careful. It is for your welfare.

What are the necessary precautions to be followed during the period of pregnancy?
The first trimester of pregnancy is a very sensitive period as the foetus is in its early developmental stage. It is the time when the major organs are in the initial formation stage, not to forget the development of the body systems. Therefore, adequate precaution needs to be taken so that the foetal development is not disrupted at any cost. It is not that you need to live in a bubble and keep worrying about its safety, or stay stationed on your couch during these first three months. It is just that you must be well informed and take the necessary sensible precautions.avoid alcohol, smoking, sea food coffee, hot water bath or sauna bath, medicine and herbs. thanks

COCONUT RESOLVE KIDNEY STONE

Coconut is a tropical fruit that is rich in protein. Coconut water is good for kidney and urinary bladder problems.
Drinking coconut water for 2 to 3 times a week reduces the size of kidney stones in a short period of time.

Benefits of coconut water
* it dissolves kidney stones
* it prevents bladder infections
* it revitalizes your reproductive system

Symptoms of kidney stones

Kidney stones that are above the pelvis of the kidney usually do not cause symptoms.
Symptoms often occur when a stone migrates into the ureter, the tube that carries urine from the kidney to the bladder, and prevents the drainage of urine from the kidney.
When stones are present in the ureter, a person may experience the following symptoms:

* pain.

* nausea and vomiting.

* blood in the urine.

* increase in frequency or urgency of urination, or the inability to urinate.

There are other possible consequences of kidney stones. Partial or complete obstruction of a kidney by a stone may lead to a backup of urine in the blood, along with its potentially toxic component, urea. If this happens, the kidney may suffer damage to its tubules (the microscopic chemical plants that manufacture urine) and to their associated blood vessels.

Kidney stones are formed from chemicals that are found in your urine such as, calcium, carbonates, cystine, oxalic acid, phosphates, uric acid, ammonium, and magnesium.

Of these chemicals, calcium constitutes a large percentage of the stones that are formed.

Causes of kidney stones

One contributing cause is a defective metabolic process. When you habitually drink insufficient amounts of water and other fluids daily, your urine becomes highly concentrated.
Diet is another major contributing factor. If you are fond of eating fatty foods and your daily intake of high fiber foods is low, you will surely have kidney stone problems sooner or later.
Other causes

* acid-forming foods

* alcoholic drinks

* coffee

* condiments

* junk food

* spices

* sugar foods

Importance of making kidneys function properly
Kidneys receive a large amount of the blood pumped by your heart. This huge blood supply enable your kidneys to regulate the composition of your blood.
They also remove wastes such as ammonia, drugs, urea and other toxins from your body.
That's why it is important to dissolve kidney stones early before they get big enough to give you problems, such as kidney infections, later.

Other functions

* they keep the volume of water constant in your body

* they regulate your blood pressure

* they aid in making red blood cells

* they maintain the calcium levels in your body

Coconut water helps dissolve kidney stones by diluting your urine so that the various chemicals in your kidneys such as calcium, phosphates, uric acid, etc. Are relatively easy to flush out of your system.
This is because it is a natural diuretic and it increases the urine flow.
Aside from its ability to dissolve kidney stones, it is also a rich source of cytokinins. Cytokinins are plant growth hormones, they regulate the growth and development of plants.
The interesting part is that cytokinins have an anti-aging effect on human cells and tissues.
In other words, they help delay your aging process.

Other health benefits of coconut:

1. Prevents simple goiter (enlarged non-toxic thyroid) because of its organic iodine content.

2. Good body builder, so it is a food recommended for building up the body muscles of thin and emaciated individuals.

3. Constipation and for any build-up of gas in the stomach and intestinal tract.

4. Coconut milk has been found to help causes of a sore throat as well as relieving stomach ulcers.

5. Coconut oil has been found to heal cuts, scratches, burns and sunburns.

6. The oil has also been recommended for facial massage and is reported to be good as a wrinkle remover.

7. Coconut oil is also good for the scalp and hair and makes hairdressing unnecessary.

8. Intake of at least 2 tbsp. Of virgin coconut, oil per day can lessen your vitamin e requirement.

9. Coconut water is good for kidney and urinary bladder problems.

This proves that a pound of prevention is indeed worth more than a ton of cure.
