Absolutely, there absolutely no problem in taking alfalfa tonic. Weakness is commonly present after viral fever if the treatment is taken solely from allopathy. Take this tonic and feel the effect, if there will be any other problem, then consult a qualified homoeopathic physician.

Its risky. Following tips will help you:- use plenty of lubricant (e. G. Ky jelly) to reduce the risk of tissue tears and minimize friction. Try to relax by taking a warm bath before anal sex. Lying on your stomach may make entry smoother. Stop anal sex if you start experiencing pain. If you experience bleeding or you notice a boil or rashes around the anus or a discharge coming from it, see a doctor as soon as possible.

Hello, Sex during periods should be avoided as it increases the chances of endometriosis in women. Period blood doesn't contain HIV virus unless she is seropositive.

Hello, No, anal sex has nothing to do with increase in the size of the ass. However it is sometimes painful for the female if not done with proper lubrication.

How to get pregnant fast I already try in ovulation period please tell me what to do What my hubby and me can do.

MD, MBBS

How to get pregnant fast I already try in ovulation period please tell me what to do What my hubby and me can do.
Dear lybrate-user, In a natural cycle, by having regular intercourse during fertile (ovulatory) period, the chances of conception are 5% to 7%. With the help of various Assisted Reproductive Techniques, these may increase to 15% to 40%. Since you are young and are already aware of the fertile period, I would suggest you to be patient and try for a few months by having natural relations during this fertile period itself. Remain stress free and enjoy this phase of your marriage. My best wishes are with you.

Diabetes Proves Deadly for Smokers

Diabetes Proves Deadly for Smokers

While it is well known that smoking causes lung cancer, heavy smokers with diabetes are also at increased risk of death from causes other than lung cancer, according to a study being presented next week at the annual meeting of the radiological society of north america (rsna).

Diabetes is a chronic illness in which there are high levels of glucose in the blood. More than 29 million people in the u. S. Have diabetes, up from the previous estimate of 26 million in 2010, according to a report released by the centers for disease control and prevention. One in four people with diabetes doesn't know he or she has it. Having diabetes can also put people at risk for numerous other health complications.

To determine the extent to which diabetes is associated with deaths from lung cancer, other cancers, and other causes among heavy smokers, researchers examined the risk for all-cause mortality among people with and without diabetes within the national lung screening trial (nlst), a massive, multicenter trial that compared low-dose helical ct with chest x-ray for early detection of lung cancer in current and former heavy smokers.

" in our study, we found a statistically significant link between diabetes and all-cause deaths, non-lung cancer deaths and lung cancer deaths in women" said kavita garg, m. D, professor of radiology from the university of colorado -- denver.

For the study, Dr. Garg and colleagues looked at data from 53, 454 participants in the nlst and identified 5, 174 participants who reported having diabetes at screening.

They conducted an analysis of the relative risk for overall mortality, lung cancer mortality, and non-lung cancer mortality associated with diabetes, adjusting for age, gender, body mass index (bmi), and pack-years of smoking. Over the course of the study, there were 3, 936 total deaths, including 1, 021 from lung cancer and 826 from cancers not of the lung.

Participants with diabetes tended to be older, reported more pack-years of smoking, and had a higher bmi than those without diabetes. There were 650 deaths (12.6 percent of patients) among participants with diabetes and 3, 286 deaths (6.8 percent of patients) among participants without diabetes.

" we found that diabetes doubles the risk for all-cause mortality and non-lung cancer mortality among heavy smokers" Dr. Garg said" we also found that women with diabetes have an increased risk of lung-cancer mortality, but did not find the same effect in men"

The researchers continue to analyze data in an effort to better understand the underlying cause. In the meantime, Dr. Garg emphasizes the importance of taking control of diabetes and undergoing lung cancer screening if you're a smoker.

" patients have to take care of their diabetes to maximize the benefit of ct screening for lung cancer" she said" it truly makes a magnitude of difference in mortality risk"

No need to carry any doubts, Premature babies are handed to parents only when they become near normal weight after fed in a nursery with top feeds, after that the milestones and weight gain is @ normal kids born with weight 2-3 kg at birth.

Gm sir on 15 th may my sis got baby n 17 may she died suddenly I thing while feeding milk she slept n not got up now my sister in big trauma n I just want to know now she is getting breast pain due to not feeding what medicine or treatment she can do.

MBBS, DGO (cal)
General Physician,
I am very sorry to hear that. Pray that the God give your sister strength to overcome the shock. Yes there are medicine, but you can't get it over the counter, as well as, you should not try without a doctor's supervision. Please consult the gynaecologist who took your sister's care during her antenatal period. She needs counselling and this medicine. Go as soon as possible, otherwise she may develop more breast engorgement and might develop breast abscess. Till medicine is started let her express milk manually. This is just for your knowledge, total 14 days treatment with cabergoline is the drug of choice. It is given 3.5 mg daily for 3 days then 2.5 mg twice daily for 11 days more. (total 14 days). But remember, you must not start the medicine without advice of her doctor because she might have developed psychosis by now, due to shock, and also she need to be examined before starting this medicine.
