Use following diet in pregnancy lunch: broccoli and pea soup a fantastic light lunch that's easy to digest and is full of folate. Serve with crusty bread and reduced-fat hummus, to make it even more nutritious. This recipe uses fortified soya milk, so it's fine to eat if you're a vegan, but you can replace it with semi-skimmed cow's milk if that's what you have to hand. Serves four, and freezes well, if you have leftovers. Ingredients 2 tbsp olive or rapeseed oil 1 large onion, roughly chopped 500g broccoli, roughly chopped 250g frozen peas 500ml unsweetened fortified soya milk (or semi-skimmed milk) 500ml vegetable stock black pepper, to taste method preparation time: 20 minutes cooking time: 20 minutes in a large, non-stick saucepan or casserole, fry the onion in the oil until soft. This should take about 10 minutes. Add the broccoli and peas. Cook for a few minutes, stirring often. Add the soya milk and stock, and bring the soup to the boil. Then turn down the heat, cover the pan, and simmer for about 20 minutes, until the broccoli is soft. Transfer to a food processor or blender, or use a stick blender and whizz until smooth. Snack: orange with stem ginger and dates give your immune system a boost in those early weeks with a fresh orange, which is a great source of vitamin c. The ginger may help to relieve nausea, and adds a spicy kick to the orange. Ingredients 1 large orange handful of dates stem ginger in syrup method preparation time: 5 minutes peel the orange and slice it horizontally, arranging the slices on a plate. Chop a few dates and sprinkle on the orange. Then chop the stem ginger finely and add a few slivers on top. Dinner: beef and black-eyed bean casserole black-eyed beans are high in folate and a good source of fibre. This delicious stew is an easy way to incorporate beans into your diet. The bacon and sun-dried tomatoes are high in salt, so you won't need to add any stock or salt. Serves four, and can be frozen. Ingredients 150g lean bacon, cubed 1 large onion, roughly chopped 500g lean stewing beef 1 large (400g) can black-eyed beans, drained and rinsed 1 tsp paprika or smoked paprika 2 tbsp sun-dried tomatoes in oil, drained and chopped 1 tbsp plain flour 400ml water 2 bay leaves black pepper method preparation time: 15 minutes cooking time: one hour 30 minutes preheat the oven to 160 degrees c, or gas mark 3. Add the bacon and onion to a non-stick frying pan and cook over a gentle heat, until the bacon releases its fat and the onion is browned. Remove from the pan and add to a large casserole, along with the beef, beans, paprika and tomatoes. Sprinkle over the flour and stir in. Pour over the water, tuck in the bay leaves and stir well. Cover with a lid and place in the oven for 90 minutes, stirring occasionally. Put a jacket potato in the oven at the same time as the stew. Serve with steamed broccoli or spinach, and carrots or sweetcorn.

Hello, Regular and proper menstruation flush out toxins every month from the body of the female naturally. If this blood flow is obstructed by some dietary misconducts or digestion upset (constipation) the toxins are absorbed back in the body causes skin disease, pimples,hot flashes etc. For permanent cure you must follow a proper indian menstruation schedule, along with this chew fresh neem leaves in the morning, wash face dour to five times a day, apply coriander powder+Multani mitti paste over bumps and avoid spicy and oily foods. You will feel better. Good luck.

As per your reports you have a reduced ovarian reserve, i.e. the quality and quantity of egg produce is not good.. Your Prolactin and thyroid reports are normal. Also get your AMH test done. Since your age is also 30 yrs, so would suggest you to go for IVF.

Maybe you're just really eager to get pregnant, or maybe you want your baby's birth to happen at a specific time. It is too early that you are getting worried. You need to keep trying. A consultation with gynaecologist should help. Please note that you can not predict a time frame and sometimes it takes time to conceive. Have patience and here are some tips which can help: tip #1: the biggest secret to getting pregnant faster is knowing when you ovulate (release an egg from your ovary). Think of the egg as a bull's-eye and the sperm as arrows. One of the arrows has to hit the bull's-eye in order for you to get pregnant. If you notice that you have irregular periods over the course of several months, pinpointing ovulation could be difficult. Ask your doctor for advice. Tip #2: once you know when your egg will be released from your ovary, you can plan to have sex during your most fertile days: from three days before ovulation through the day of ovulation. (starting a little sooner can't hurt; some women have gotten pregnant from sex that happened six days before they ovulated.) if you have a regular cycle of 28 days, days 12 to 16 days are said to be a woman's most fertile period counting from the first day of cycle. Tip #3: sperm have their best shot at fertilizing an egg when they're healthy, strong, and plentiful. Several things can help your partner get his sperm supply in fighting shape: - cut back on alcohol (studies show that drinking daily can reduce testosterone levels and sperm counts and raise the number of abnormal sperm) - quit tobacco and recreational drugs (these can cause poor sperm function) - eat enough of certain key nutrients like zinc, folic acid, calcium, and vitamins c and d, that help create plentiful, strong, wiggly sperm - avoid hot tubs, saunas, and hot baths, since heat kills sperm.

To give her abortion pill, pregnancy needs to be confirmed first. It can be confirmed by urine test after 7 days of missed period i. E. On 31st march. Before that time pregnancy test will come negative. Menses can be delayed naturally by hormonal changes also. So wait till 31st march.

Your menses are absolutely normal. Menstrual bleeding lasting for 2-7 days is considered as normal. If your bleeding has reduced from 4 days to 3 days, it is not abnormal. Menses can get delayed by hormonal changes. You can wait for another month to get your spontaneous menses.

Dyspareunia Symptoms

Dyspareunia is a phenomenon noticed in both males and females, but more frequently in females. It refers to recurring pain during or after sexual intercourse. Such kind of pain affects female genitalia usually the vagina, clitoris, or at times the depths of the pelvis. This pain is often accompanied by a burning, itching or throbbing sensation which can prove to be extremely discomforting if left unattended. Thankfully, a careful examination of symptoms leading to Dyspareunia and its early diagnosis can improve a person's sexual health.

Indicators of this deep rooted problem
1. Pain can occur during penetration in and around the vagina, urethra or the bladder.
2. Pain can be a new occurrence after earlier instances of painless intercourse.
3. It can be felt throughout intercourse in places, such as deep in the pelvis or even after intercourse.
4. The intensity of the ache is sometimes sharp and at other times, it is as piercing as menstrual cramps.
5. It need not necessarily be associated with intercourse; pain can be experienced during any kind of penetration. Thus, using a tampon or a moon cup can also result in soreness.
6. Skin diseases can either be a symptom or a root cause leading to the problem. Skin problems, such as Psoriasis or Lichen Sclerosus should not be taken lightly.
7. Tightening of vaginal muscles at the beginning of intercourse may or may not be superficial pain. In most cases, it is identified as Vaginismus but it can also be a symptom of acute Dyspareunia.

Ways to nip the pain in the bud
1. While, usually, pain during sexual intercourse is a result of adolescence or a traumatic sexual history, it can also be the result of a physiological problem contracted at birth. However, treatment in any situation is necessary to enable smooth functioning of one's life.
2. Injectable corticosteroids might prove to be helpful.
3. There are oral medications to remedy the problem; antibiotics and antifungal medicines.
4. Increase in estrogen levels through the use of the drug Osphena helps in curing frailty of vaginal tissues.

Precautionary measures to be followed at home
1. Taking a warm bath before intercourse can lead to betterment.
2. It is best to avoid sex when in stress. Both partners should be relaxed to ensure a complete lack of pain.
3. After sex pain can be relieved by applying an ice pack around the vulva.
4. Urinating before sex can be helpful. It is also good to use water soluble lubricants for stimulation.

Most of the side effects when using this early abortion option are caused by the second medication, misoprostol. Side-effects may include heavy bleeding, headache, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and heavy cramping. Vaginal bleeding with medical abortion could be extremely heavy. Mifepristone blocks the hormone progesterone needed to maintain the pregnancy. Because this hormone is blocked, the uterine lining begins to shed, the cervix begins to soften and bleeding may occur. With the later addition of the second medication, misoprostol, the uterus contracts and the pregnancy is usually expelled within 6 to 8 hours. Aftercare a follow-up exam is scheduled for two weeks later to make sure the process is complete. If you have not yet miscarried, we will perform a aspiration abortion. A very small percentage (5%) of women do not pass the pregnancy tissue and need a suction procedure to complete the process.
