It is due to the ever growing problem of Acne and pimples that lead to the flooding of creams, lotions and face washes in the market to heal and cure Acne and pimples. You should wipe off the slightest amount of sweat from your face as soon as you perspire on entering your room from outside wash your face with an oil-free, non-moisturizing face wash. Take a low carbohydrate diet. Do some exercise daily. Drink lots of water to avoid constipation. Avoid pricking the pimples or popping the sebum as it may lead to black pigmentation & permanent scar formation.

It can be a withdrawal bleeding but in order to confirm whether you are pregnant or not you will have to wait for your due date to be missed and then it can be confirmed whether you have conceived. Ipills can never help you to terminate your pregnancy, they rather disturbs the harmonal balance and creates many side effects. For any further information or assistance you may get back to us.

Here is a simple, home based remedy to help you tighten your vaginal muscles. Boil some gooseberries in water and store the resultant solution in a bottle. Apply some over your vagina when you take a bath every day. The solution would restore the elasticity and suppleness of your vagina in no time at all.

काजू के फायदे और नुकसान - Kaju Benefits And Side Effects In Hindi

 

काजू एनार्काडियम आक्सीडेन्टल पेड़ का बीज होता है। यह आम तौर पर भारतीय पॅक्वानो में सूखे फल के रूप में प्रयोग किया जाता है। ठोस, नरम, मीठा और स्वादिष्ट काजू ऊर्जा से भरा होता है। यह ब्राजील के अमेज़ॅन वर्षा वन से दुनियाभर में पुर्तगाली यात्रियों द्वारा फैल गया था। अब, ब्राजील, भारत, वियतनाम आदि जैसे विभिन्न देशों में इसकी खेती की जाती है। काजू मोनोअनसैचुरेटेड वसा और प्रोटीन का अच्छा स्रोत हैं। इसके अलावा, काजू विटामिन और खनिजों से भरा हुआ है। अतः काजू खाने के बहुत सारे लाभ हैं, जैसे कि:

1. ट्यूमर से लड़ता है: इसमें प्रोएन्टोकाइनाइडिन है, जो ट्यूमर कोशिकाओं के खिलाफ उनकी वृद्धि और विभाजन को रोक कर लड़ने की क्षमता रखता है। यह विभिन्न कैंसर जैसे कोलन, प्रोस्टेट आदि के कैंसर को रोकता है। इसके अलावा इस में विटामिन "के" होता है, जो ट्यूमर कोशिकाओं के विकास को दबाने की क्षमता रखता है। इसमें सेलेनियम और विटामिन "ई" जैसे एंटीऑक्सिडेंट हैं जो प्रतिरक्षा को बढ़ा देता है।

2. संक्रमण से लड़ता है: इसमें उच्च मात्रा मे जस्ता होता है जो विभिन्न संक्रमणों से लड़ने में मदद करता है।

3. दिल के लिए काजू के लाभ: इसमें मौजूद मैग्नीशियम रक्तचाप को बनाए रखने में मदद करता है। रक्तचाप को कम करने की इसकी प्रवृत्ति दिल के दौरे को रोकने में मदद करती है। इसमें, कम स्तर मे सोडियम और उच्च स्तर मे पोटेशियम होता है जो रक्तचाप को नियंत्रण में रखता है। काजू में ओलेइक एसिड और पॉमिटॉलिक एसिड नामक आवश्यक फैटी एसिड हैं, जो खराब कोलेस्ट्रॉल के स्तर को कम कर देते हैं और साथ ही अच्छे कोलेस्ट्रॉल और ट्राइग्लिसराइड्स के स्तर को बढ़ा देते हैं। काजू इस प्रकार रक्त के लिपिड प्रोफाइल को संतुलित करके कोरोनरी धमनी रोग और स्ट्रोक को रोकता है। इसके अलावा काजू एरोरोस्क्लेरोसिस को रोकता है और धमनियों में पट्टिका के गठन को कम कर देता है। यह ओमेगा -3 फैटी एसिड और ओमेगा -6 फैटी एसिड का भी एक अच्छा स्रोत है जो शक्तिशाली एंटीऑक्सिडेंट के रूप में कार्य करते हैं और रक्त कणों को मुक्त कण और हृद्-अतालता से रोकता है। ओलेइक एसिड की तरह आवश्यक फैटी एसिड, कोलेस्ट्रॉल को रक्तप्रवाह में प्रवेश करने से रोकते है। इस प्रकार काजू कम घनत्व वाले लिपोप्रोटीन (एलडीएल) को कम करता है और खून में उच्च घनत्व वाले लिपोप्रोटीन (एचडीएल) को बढ़ाता है और इस तरह हृदय रोगों के जोखिम को कम करता है।

4. बालों के लिए काजू का लाभ: इसमें तांबा नामक एक महत्वपूर्ण खनिज होता है, जो बालों को अपनी चमक, ताकत और काले रंग को बनाए रखने के लिए मदद करता है। इसमें पाया गया कॉपर कई एंजाइमों के लिए एक आवश्यक घटक के रूप में कार्य करता है। ट्राइरोसेनेस एक तांबे वाला एंजाइम है, जो टाइरोसिन को मेरिनिन (एक रंगद्रव्य जो बाल और त्वचा को रंग प्रदान करता है) में परिवर्तित करने में मदद करता है।

5. हड्डियों के लिए काजू का लाभ: इसमें कैल्शियम, मैग्नीशियम, फास्फोरस इत्यादि जैसे खनिज होते हैं जो हड्डियों के स्वस्थ विकास के लिए आवश्यक होते हैं। शरीर में अच्छा मैग्नीशियम स्तर भी हड्डियों द्वारा कैल्शियम अवशोषण स्तर को बढ़ाता है। इसकी उच्च स्तरीय प्रोटीन और अच्छे मैग्नीशियम और कैल्शियम का स्तर मजबूत हड्डी संरचना को बनाने में मदद करता है। उच्च तांबे का स्तर हड्डियों और जोड़ों के लचीलेपन को बनाए रखने में मदद करता है। काजू में पाए जाने वाले "विटामिन के" हड्डियों को कड़ा करके स्वस्थ हड्डियों को बनाए रखने में मदद करता है, जो ऑस्टियोपोरोसिस और कंकाल विकृति जैसी बिमारिओं को रोकता है ।

6. तंत्रिकाओं के लिए काजू के लाभ: इसमें मौजूद मैग्नीशियम हड्डियों की सतह पर संग्रहित हो जाता है और कैल्शियम को तंत्रिका कोशिकाओं में प्रवेश करने से रोकता है।

7. वजन घटाने में मदद करता है: काजू की उच्च ऊर्जा घनत्व और आहार के तंतुओं का उच्च स्तर है, दोनों ही अगर सीमित मात्रा में खाए जाएं तो वजन प्रबंधन के लिए सहायता करते हैं।

 

काजू के नुकसान अतः काजू को कम मात्रा में खाने से बहुत स्वस्थ हो सकता है, परंतु अगर बड़ी मात्रा में खाया जाए तो कई दुष्प्रभाव भी उत्पन्न हो सकते हैं। जैसे कि:

1. भार बढ़ना: काजू में काफी कैलोरी होती हैं इसलिए वजन बढ़ा सकता हैं।

2. एलर्जी: कुछ लोगों को काजू से एलर्जी होती है। एलर्जी मुंह और गले में पित्ती, चकत्ते, खुजली पैदा कर सकती है।

3. रक्तचाप बढ़ना: बड़ी मात्रा में काजू उपभोग करने से सोडियम तेजी से बढ़ सकता है, जो आपके रक्तचाप को बढ़ा सकता है।

4. सिरदर्द: यदि आप सिर दर्द और माइग्रेन से पीड़ित हैं, तो काजू से बचें। इस में मौजूद एमिनो एसिड सिरदर्द पैदा कर सकता है।

IVF - Understanding The IVF Process!

IVF - Understanding The IVF Process!

In-vitro fertilization (IVF) is a fertilization technique through which the sperm and an egg are fused in a laboratory. The embryo is grown in a lab for a span of 4-5 days and then transferred to a woman’s uterus. This process is extremely effective and increases the chances of fertilization. There is a four-step process of IVF as discussed below:

  1. Ovulation induction: The first process involves the inspection of the ovary and subsequent release of the eggs. Among other observations, the doctor observes whether the ovaries are functioning well, hormones are present in adequate quantities and blood pressure is normal. If there is a shortage of ovary, women are advised to consume fertility medicine for a while. More the number of ovaries produced, better are the chances of successful embryo formation. In case egg formation causes a bother, one can talk to their doctor regarding donor eggs being used for the process.
  2. Retrieval of the egg: During this process, a doctor might suggest pain medication in order to negate any discomfort that a woman might face. A thin needle is then passed through the vaginal wall. Along with vaginal ultrasound and gentle suction, fluid from the follicles is taken out. The egg is separated from the follicular fluid and is placed in the culture dish that contains nutrient media. The dish is then placed in the incubator for further processing.
  3. Fertilization: The next process is to ensure that the egg fertilizes properly. In order to do this, a healthy sperm cell is obtained from the partner or a wishful donor. After a careful inspection, the most active sperm cell is combined with the egg and placed in a chamber. The sperm and the egg are taken to a common place and the two are mixed in the incubator. A healthy embryo thus develops.
  4. Embryo transfer: The final process involves the transfer of the embryo. This is the most complicated step in this procedure. A little glitch can jeopardize the whole procedure and threat the success rate. Out of all the embryos, the healthy one is selected. Inside the vagina, a speculum is then placed and the healthiest embryo is transferred into the uterus. This is a strenuous process and complete bed rest for more than a day is advised by doctors.
  5. Pregnancy: Post the IVF process, a woman might take a couple of weeks to get pregnant. If the procedure becomes successful, your pregnancy test will come as positive. Many, though, return a negative test result. This only signifies that the procedure has failed. On an average, it takes 2 attempts for IVF to become successful. This is not a high-risk procedure and the same can be taken as many times as you want. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an IVF Specialist.

When Should You Get Your Liver Checked? 5 Major Symptoms

When Should You Get Your Liver Checked? 5 Major Symptoms
5 Major Symptoms of Liver Problems

Liver is the largest internal organ of our body and plays an indispensable role in a number of important body functions such as blood detoxification, glucose storage, storage of iron and vitamins etc. Liver disease, commonly known as hepatic disease affects a large part of the liver tissue and can be treated effectively if detected while it is in its initial stages.

Here are five major symptoms of liver disease which you must watch out for:

1. Weight loss: Rapid loss of weight is the most common and noticeable symptom of liver disease. If you feel that you have lost an extra couple of kilos within the span of a few months, you should definitely consult your doctor and get a check-up done.

2. Fatigue and weakness: This is usually accompanied by weight loss. As the body loses fat, it tends to become lethargic, low on energy and fragile. Feeling tired at all times and witnessing a reduced stamina can be signs of liver disease.

3. Tendency to easily get bruised: Liver disease affects at least three quarters of the liver tissue which makes your body susceptible to bruises, cuts and wounds. The skin becomes fragile and is thus damaged easily at the slightest provocation. Moreover, once bruised, it also takes a longer time to heal than normal, as the generation of new tissues is erratic and takes longer amount of time.

4. Darker than normal urine: This is another early warning sign of an impending liver disease which can easily be noticed. If you are noticing urine which is dark yellow in colour and this happens continuously for a couple of days, it is in your best interests to consult a doctor at the earliest.

5. Swelling and pain in the abdomen: Abdominal pain is often dismissed as being trivial and occasional but is a definite symptom of liver disease. If you are experiencing severe pain and swelling in the area, make sure to get a doctor’s opinion.

Keep a gap of minimum 3 mths before planning your next pregnancy. Ovulation days are 14 days before the next expected period date. So for a cycle of 28 days, it falls on 14th day of cycle, for a cycle of 30 days, it falls on 16th day of cycle. & so on. You should have intercourse from 2 days prior to ovulation to 2 days after ovulation. Those are the only fertile days in the whole cycle.

At the time me and my husband have sex I'm getting Soo much pain. Can you help me why.

Psychiatrist, Delhi
At the time me and my husband have sex I'm getting Soo much pain. Can you help me why.
Dyspareunia is a term used for pain felt in the genital area or pelvis during or after having sex (intercourse). Nobody really knows exactly how common it is, as many women never seek medical help. However, questionnaires asking women if they have symptoms suggest that somewhere between 1 and 4 out of 10 women experience it. Most commonly, this is early in their sexual lives or around the menopause. There are many causes of dyspareunia, most of which are not serious or damaging in nature, but all can be detrimental to your sex life and ultimately may lead to relationship difficulties. It can be a vicious circle, with pain leading to nervousness about having sex, and nervousness leading to dryness and further pain. It's also not uncommon for dyspareunia to remain after the cause has been treated, particularly if things have been left untreated for a while. For this reason, it is important to seek help early, so that treatable causes can be discovered and managed. This leaflet discusses the types and possible causes of dyspareunia. What is dyspareunia? Dyspareunia is pain felt in the genital area or pelvis during or after having sex (intercourse). It may be thought of as either superficial dyspareunia or deep dyspareunia. They have different causes and treatments and, although it's possible to experience both at the same time, most women find that their dyspareunia is predominantly one or the other type. Superficial dyspareunia This is pain felt in the lips of the vagina (labia), at the vaginal entrance (introitus) and the lower part of the vagina. It typically begins with penetration or very early on after intercourse has begun. It is sore and instant. It is usually quickly relieved by stopping penetration, although you may be sore to the touch afterwards for a little while. The causes of superficial dyspareunia are usually local problems of the labial, vaginal and perineal skin (the perineum is the area of skin between the vaginal opening and the back passage). Deep dyspareunia This is the term for pain felt deeper in the pelvis during or after intercourse. It can also spread to involve the fronts of the thighs. It may be sharp or dull, may stop when penetration stops or can continue for minutes or even hours. The causes of this type of pain usually lie rather deeper in the pelvis. Causes of superficial dyspareunia Skin bridge Formation of a little bridge of scar tissue at the very back of the vaginal entrance (introitus) is common after childbirth, particularly if you have had a cut between the vagina and back passage (anus) - a procedure called episiotomy. The scar tissue contains nerve endings and is very sensitive, and so it causes pain on penetration. The pain tends to become worse as having sex (intercourse) continues, as the skin bridge becomes rubbed by the continuing rubbing of penetration. Intact hymen The hymen is a membrane that lines the vaginal opening. Early in your sex life the hymen is broken down by the act of having sex. In many young women it will already have been stretched by use of tampons. The name 'intact hymen' is misleading, as the hymen does in fact have a small hole in it from birth. This hole becomes larger little by little as girls grow older. However, the hymen can be quite thick and the hole not quite large enough. This can mean that early in her sexual life a woman my feel pain from the hymen as it is forced open the first time she has intercourse. The pain is superficial, felt at the entrance to the vagina as soon as penetration is attempted and may prevent it from taking place. Vaginismus Vaginismus causes a powerful and often painful contraction of the muscles around the entrance to the vagina, which makes penetration painful or impossible. It may also prevent the use of tampons and any sort of gynaecological examination. The spasm of vaginismus is not something you can cause deliberately; it's completely outside your control. It may seem to begin for no reason but can also result from a painful or worrying experience of sex, when it becomes a kind of protective reflex. However, vaginismus is upsetting and dispiriting for both halves of a couple, as it can prevent the enjoyment of sex for many years and can prevent sex completely. Once it has begun, fear of failure and nervousness about not being able to have sex make it worse. It's important to seek help to break the cycle of anxiety and pain. Vaginismus is not difficult to treat but your doctor may need to refer you to a psychologist or specialist physiotherapist. Bartholinitis Bartholin's glands are a pair of glands on either side of the vagina, in the tissues of the wall. They can become inflamed and tender causing Bartholinitis and this will lead to pain during sex. Occasionally, the glands swell during sex, so that it starts off as painless but then becomes painful as it continues. See separate leaflet called Bartholin's Cyst and Abscess for more details. Vulvodynia This is a very troublesome condition where the vulval area becomes painful and extremely sensitive to pressure and touch. It can be accompanied by severe pain on attempted penetration. It can also cause the vulval area to be painful touched and during activities of everyday living. It can lead to frustration and depression, as symptoms can be very long-standing. The causes are uncertain but may involve the nerves in the area becoming much more sensitive than normal and the way the brain communicates wtih these nerves changing in some way. Treatment includes the use of emollient soap substitutes, creams that numb the area, medicines that lessen pain, physiotherapy and cognitive behavioural therapy. Lichen sclerosus This is a scarring skin condition which may affect women of any age, including children. It can affect men too. It results in thinning of the skin of the genital area, together with formation of white patches. It may be caused by the immune system. It causes itching and pain, which can last for a very long time. It's often mistaken for thrush as it can be very itchy and sometimes slightly sore. Lichen sclerosus carries a small risk risk of cancer of the genital skin. For this reason it should be diagnosed and treated - treatment is usually with regular application of creams. See separate leaflet called Lichen Sclerosus for more details. Female genital mutilation Female genital mutilation (which used to be known as female circumcision), involves varying degrees of mutilating surgery to the genitals of a girl. In the more extreme forms, the vagina is stitched shut. Following genital mutilation there is usually permanent scarring, which may lead to damaged nerves and pain. Any of these issues can cause pain on penetration and may make sex impossible. Vaginal abnormalities Very rarely, abnormalities of the vagina itself make sex painful or even impossible. These include pieces of extra tissue inside the vagina which are present at birth (vaginal septa). Causes of superficial and deep dyspareunia Vaginal trauma The vagina is pretty flexible and strong and usually recovers well from the stretch and (sometimes) small tears of childbirth. However, more significant injury to the vagina - for example, from difficult childbirth or mutilation - can lead to scarring and then to pain and difficulty during sex (intercourse). Vaginal or genital infection Infections of the vagina and the area around it cause inflammation of the tissues and so commonly cause pain on having sex. Infection may be with thrush (candida - a yeast that often lives in the bowel), with viruses such as herpes and with germs (bacteria). A wide range of bacterial infections can infect the vagina. Some (but by no means all) are sexually transmitted. The vagina is not always sore and itchy before sex but becomes so afterwards. There is often a coloured discharge and you may notice an offensive smell. See separate leaflets called Vaginal Thrush (Yeast Infection), Genital Herpes and Bacterial Vaginosis for more details. Vaginal dryness Sometimes pain during sex is due to lack of lubrication, meaning that the vagina is too dry. Normally, the vagina produces secretions which keep it moist and these increase when you become sexually aroused. If there isn't enough foreplay, or you are not aroused enough, you may not produce enough secretions to make penetration comfortable. However, it isn't always as simple as that. There may be reasons why you don't produce the secretions that you should. These can include psychological reasons such as nervousness because sex has previously been uncomfortable; anxiety around becoming pregnant; or anxiety around waking your sleeping children. Dryness can also be for physical reasons - the vagina tends to be drier after the menopause (see below). Some medicines can cause vaginal dryness, including some contraceptive methods. Vaginal dryness is also associated with a condition called Sjögren's syndrome, in which the body's secretions are generally rather reduced. Finally, pregnancy itself can make the vagina dry during intercourse (although it can also have the opposite effect). Vaginal atrophy After the menopause the levels of hormones in your body fall - particularly the level of oestrogen. Oestrogen is the hormone that keeps the vaginal wall strong and resistant. It increases the blood supply and the level of secretions and makes the wall softer and more stretchy. Therefore, when oestrogen levels fall after the menopause, the tissues become thinner, less stretchy and less well lubricated. Sometimes they can become as fragile and delicate as the vaginal tissues of young girls (who have not yet reached puberty and started their periods). There are lots of very effective treatments for this problem. See separate leaflet called Vaginal Dryness (Atrophic Vaginitis) for more details. Causes of deep dyspareunia Deep dyspareunia can be caused by the genital organs themselves but may also be caused by other structures in the tummy (abdomen) that can be easily knocked during sex (intercourse). There are therefore many possible causes of deep pain in the tummy during sex. Cervical pain The neck of the womb (cervix) should not normally be painful. However, if can become infected by many of the organisms which can infect the vagina - particularly herpes. If the cervix becomes inflamed then knocking it with the penis during sex may cause deep pain in the pelvis and sometimes across the fronts of the thighs. The cervix may also become tender and sensitive if you have an intrauterine contraceptive device, particularly if it is sitting a little too low or falling out. This can cause sudden sharp pains in the cervix during sex. (Fortunately cervical cancer is very rare and does not usually cause painful sex.) Endometriosis Endometriosis is a condition in which little bits of womb (uterine) lining become embedded in other parts of the body. Most usually this is in the ovaries, the Fallopian tubes that link the womb to the ovaries, and the cervix. These bits of tissue bleed whenever you have a period. This blood tends to cause scar tissue formation with sticking of organs to one another, and the whole pelvis can become painful. Endometriosis is typically found in young women, and may only become apparent when they come off the contraceptive pill if they have been taking it for a while. This is because 'the pill' suppresses it and is, in fact, a treatment for endometriosis. Endometriosis causes pain on sex, typically pain that comes on with deep penetration and continues for some time after penetration is over. It also causes painful periods, and women with endometriosis can find it difficult to get pregnant. See separate leaflet called Endometriosis for more details. Ovarian cysts The presence of cysts on the ovaries can cause pain during sex (intercourse). This is because the ovaries can be knocked by the penis during intercourse and this can cause the cysts to leak fluid. It's not unusual to have cysts on the ovaries, as cyst formation is a normal part of the period (menstrual) cycle. However, these 'physiological cysts' are typically very small. Larger cysts are more likely to leak and cause pain, and can be a sign of endometriosis, especially in younger women. In women who have passed their menopause, ovarian cysts are worrying, as they can be a sign of ovarian cancer. See separate leaflet called Ovarian Cyst. Another, harmless form of pain from the ovary is called 'Mittelschmerz. This is pain when an egg is released from the ovary. Pain from Mittelschmerz may not be related to sex at all, and typically lasts for two or three days in the middle of the month - but sex may make it worse when it's there. Fibroids and growths in the womb Fibroids are non-cancerous (benign) growths in the muscle of the womb, which can cause the womb itself to become quite bulky. This is not always painful but it can lead to discomfort during sex. See separate leaflet called Fibroids. Causes related to womb position In some women the womb tilts backwards, rather than forwards; the ovaries then tend to fall backwards too. This can lead to them being knocked in positions involving deep penetration. This can result in deep pain in the pelvis that is more noticeable with deep penetration and which settles slowly when penetration stops or when you change your position. Bowel pain During intercourse the bowel is also knocked and moved. If the bowel is sensitive or tender then this can be the origin of pain during sex. This is particularly likely in women who have Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis or irritable bowel syndrome, all of which are conditions that cause the bowel to be painful. See separate leaflets called Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis. Pelvic inflammatory disease This is a condition of the Fallopian tubes, the womb and, sometimes, the ovaries. It is caused by infection and makes these organs inflamed. As they tend to move during sex, this is painful. The pain is typically felt deep in the pelvis, is worse with deep penetration and settles slowly when penetration stops. Pelvic inflammatory disease also tends to make you feel unwell, and may cause a temperature and a vaginal discharge. See separate leaflet called Pelvic Inflammatory Disease. Bladder pain The bladder sits on top of your womb, just behind and above your pubic bone. Like the womb, the bladder moves and gets pressed on during intercourse. So, if the bladder is inflamed, this may hurt. Typical causes include urine infections and interstitial cystitis. This is a condition in which the bladder becomes sensitive and painful. It behaves like a urine infection but no infection is present. Summary Symptoms of dyspareunia (pain felt in the pelvis during or after sex) are distressing and depressing. They can affect your sex life, your fertility and even your relationship. Many of the causes have a very simple solution and it is important to seek help if you are experiencing problems.

Hi mam. Actually mere periods ki date 7 ki h but I miss my periods. I had pregnancy test but the result was negative....
Hello delayed of menstrual date has many reasons. Any short of psychological stress, taking of contraceptive pills, PCOD, hypothyroidism can causes the hormonal imbalance and delay period. If you have past history delayed period then you can think of PCOD or Hypothyroid. If it is the first time and as you are telling of having physical relationship then over stress or excitement or fear or taking of contraceptive pills to avoid pregnancy could be the reason. First you keep yourself relax, stress free, practice a healthy lifestyle food habits and take this homeopathy medicines - Natrum mur-1M-liquid dilution-3 drops at morning for 4 days and Sepia-1M-liquid dilution-3 drops at Evening for 4 days. Then wait for 6 days. If not appearing again repeat the cycle. Thank you.
