Hello lybrate-user, it happens sometimes in usg, sonography machine shows delivery date according to baby development and it may also differs in your different scans. Don't worry about that. Doctor will count your delivery date from your first date of last menstrul period. You can measure it by adding 9 months and 7 days to the first day of last menstrul period. It is 280 days or 40 wks. Just relax and enjoy this very precious time of your life, happiness is just on the way good luck:)

Let the doctors based on your detailed history decide what tests are necessary. All the detailed tests are not mandatory unless there is any suspicion for risky pregnancy. You can always discuss about your fears and concerns with the doctor. If not satisfied with the explanation, you can take a second opinion. Worrying unnecessarily will only lead to frustration and anxiety.

Hi dr, we are newly married and when I have sex with my wife, she insists me to finger her vagina gently and also she insist me to go down on her and pleasure her orally. Is there any harm if I go down on my wife? I feel very nervous and anxious during sex.

Dear Lybrate user. Licking or sucking vagina is not advisable because vagina is a place where a lot of micro organism thrive because of its moist nature. These microorganisms cannot be cleaned 100%. So this could spell trouble if you lick or suck Please avoid licking or sucking vagina. Take care.

Macular Degeneration - All You Want to Know About

Macular Degeneration - All You Want to Know About

Even something as small as an eyeball, has multiple parts within it. The retina at the back of the eyeball is responsible for the clarity of vision. The central area of the retina is known as the macula. Macular degeneration is the deterioration of this part of the retina. Macular degeneration is age related and is considered as an incurable condition. People suffering from macular degeneration experience blurred vision, black spots and may eventually lose central vision while retaining peripheral vision.

There are two types of macular degeneration; wet and dry. The dry form of this disease is more common than its wet form. Of these, the latter causes more serious vision loss. Dry macular degeneration leads to white or yellow deposits on the retina leading to further degeneration. In the wet form of this disease, blood vessels beneath the retina start growing towards the macula and may pull it away from the base when they break or leak fluid.

There are three stages of age related macular degeneration (AMD):

  1. Early AMD: This is diagnosed by the presence of deposits on the retina. In most cases, ether is no vision loss at this stage but regular check-ups are essential.
  2. Intermediate AMD: A comprehensive eye exam will show the presence of larger deposits or pigment changes in the retina. At this stage, slight vision loss may be experienced.
  3. Late AMD: People suffering from late AMD have noticeable vision loss. Though this disease is linked to aging, the exact triggers for macular degeneration are unknown. It is understood to be a combination of hereditary and environmental factors. The presence of certain genes and their variants has been associated with a number of cases of this disease. Studies also show that caucasians are at the highest risk of suffering from this disease. Depriving cells in the retina of oxygen can also increase a person's risk of contracting this disease. Other risk factors for this disease are obesity, smoking, high blood pressure and a light eye colour. The side effects of certain drugs can also induce this condition.

Macular degeneration is considered to be incurable, but certain forms of treatment can improve vision and slow down the rate of deterioration. Treatment prescribed by a doctor depends on stage of the disease and whether it is wet or dry. Studies suggest that a diet rich in Omega-3 fatty acids can prevent AMD and lower the risk of its progression.

Hello, since she had her periods and pregnancy test is negative, you should not worry. Wait for the next period to come and treatment should be given after that if problem persists.

Hi. Breast lump should not be ignored. In case it is cancerous and detected early, it can be treated and cured. So show it to surgeon and get a biopsy done. Depending upon finding, rest of the investigation and treatment can be started.

Blood Group Diet - Understanding the Pros and Cons

Blood Group Diet - Understanding the Pros and Cons

It was believed by Dr Peter D’Adamo that the unique antigen markers of different blood group types react to different kinds of food. The consumption of the wrong kind of food may lead to various health conditions. The right kind of food, when consumed according to the blood types can help prevent chronic diseases, maintain an optimum body weight and act as defence against a large number of diseases. It was also believed that stomach acid levels and digestive enzymes are related to blood types.

Blood type diet:

  1. Blood Type A should only consume a vegetarian, in fact vegan diet.
  2. Blood Type B is recommended a balanced diet of meat, dairy products and vegetables.
  3. Blood Type O should consume high amounts of animal protein along with lots of fruits and vegetables. The carbohydrate, dairy and wholegrain intake must be low.
  4. Blood Type AB should stick to a vegetarian diet mostly, with occasional inclusions of meat and dairy products.

Pros of a diet based on blood group

  1. Food that agrees with your body system is essentially beneficial to your body.
  2. Blood type dieting makes exercising the most important part of your daily health regimen. This helps to promote fitness.
  3. It is effective as far as weight loss is concerned.
  4. It discourages the consumption of processed food and junk meals. Healthy fresh vegetables, fruits or dairy products will always be beneficial.
  5. Does not allow the intake of fatty, sugary food items.
  6. You can choose different food for your diet from a variety of food items suitable for your blood type.

Cons of a diet based on blood group

  1. It does not include food from all food groups.
  2. Many nutritionists and scientists have not been able to establish a connection between blood type and food suitability.
  3. Cutting out certain essential food groups can be quite dangerous.
  4. The theory of Dr D’Adamo is quite questionable and disputable. It does not have a medical backing.
  5. Following this diet can be quite tedious.
  6. There can be varying results from following such diet and this makes it difficult to analyse the outcome of following such diets. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dietitian-nutritionist.

Dear lybrate user. I understand. Spotting is any light vaginal bleeding which occurs at any time other than when a period is due. Spotting between periods is reasonably common. There can be a few reasons why it happens but the most common are hormonal changes and it being due to an implantation bleed. I suggest you to consult a gynecologist. Take care.

Of course you can get hiv if you have unprotected sex with strangers and if you are having only with your wife then no need of protection too but make sure you are not planning for a baby then it's mandatory to have protected sex.

Hi , homoeopathy is the permanent solution for your problem. Better to apply papaya to scars, leave 15-20 mins and wash with cold water. Do this one every alternate day along with medicines. How long are you suffering from this problem?

Repeated use of I-pill causes menstrual irregularities, like delayed periods. You repeat you pregnancy test after 5 days .if negative you can consult a doctor and take medicine for withdrawal bleeding.
