Sex can be practiced in any position. To get pregnant what mattes most is only deposition of semen inside the vagina. As you r married since only 8 months you should try for another 4 months before you can seek medical help. There is calender method you can practice to get pregnant fast. 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.

Heavy Menstrual Flow - Tips To Deal With It!

Heavy Menstrual Flow - Tips To Deal With It!

Heavy menstrual flow also known as Menorrhagia is one of the most common forms of abnormal uterine bleeding. Everyone has different periods, some might not even notice that time of the month, while others might suffer from heavy bleeding, feeling miserable and a constant worry of leaks and stains leading to embarrassing situations. Periods are considered to be heavy if a pad or tampon is soaked in blood every hour.

Other symptoms of heavy bleeding could be:

  • Passing of large clots
  • Bleeding at night which requires to get up to change a pad
  • Any period that lasts for more than seven days

The causes of heavy bleeding during periods are polyps, fibroids, adenomyosis, cancer of the uterus and cervix and sometimes certain medications.

If you are one of those women who suffer from heavy menstrual flow and are quite hassled by the same then worry not here are some tips to deal your problem.

  1. Keep a track of the periods as in when they start and the days with heavy bleeding. This helps you to track your next period and prepare yourself well for the same
  2. Eating green leafy vegetables and taking multivitamins helps to maintain the iron levels
  3. Eat fruit and food with starch to maintain a good sugar level
  4. Hydrate yourself as it makes you feel less grumpy and miserable
  5. In case of severe cramps take some pain relievers. Even a hot water bottle is a great way to chase the blues and the cramps
  6. Get some sleep as one feels tired before the period and the days of the period. Listen to your body and don't push yourselves. Use extra protection in case you are worried about leakage
  7. Don't feel shy or embarrassed to talk about your condition
  8. You might need professional help and want to consult a doctor. Keeping a track of your period is good as doctors usually ask for the duration of the period and how heavy were they.

If you do not feel better with these tips a meeting with the doctor can predict the cause of the heavy flow and accordingly a medical treatment can be planned.

Medication for heavy bleeding might include any one or more of the following:

  • Use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen.
  • Hormone Therapy for stabilizing the endometrium.
  • Tranexamic acid to promote blood clotting.
  • Dilation and curettage - scraping of the uterus is done.
  • Hysteroscopy - Hysteroscopy is done to look into the womb to find if anything wrong with the lining and D&C done to send material for testing. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.

There are no foods to avoid or terminate pregnancy even Papaya does not help in that. If you have taken unwanted 72 you need to wait for withdrawal bleeding and if you don't get do urine pregnancy test.

If overweight then try to reduce weight get an ultrasound pelvis done to check for ovaries for cystic changes if your periods have just started within a year, you can wait for few more months for them to settle & be regular better seek a gynae who can prescribe needed medicines n further tests.

Sexologist, Narnaul
Home Remedies for Indigestion
Indigestion, also known by the medical term dyspepsia, is due to a problem in the secretion of digestive juices in the stomach. Usually indigestion occurs after eating spicy or fatty foods or overeating.

It can also be triggered or made worse due to gastroesophageal reflux disease (gerd), irritable bowel syndrome, stress or anxiety, obesity, ulcers, stomach infection, thyroid disease, smoking and certain medications.

Some symptoms of indigestion are bloating, gas, growling stomach, abdominal pain, burning sensation in the upper abdomen, acidic taste and vomiting.

You can easily get relief from indigestion symptoms using ingredients from your pantry. For instance, sipping a little water at the first sign of indigestion can give you some relief as it helps increase the gastric ph.
