I had done sex after 6 days of my periods get over. Is I will get pregnant or not? please give me brief answer about when we get pregnant.

Small chance can not be denied. One gets pregnancy on day of ovulation which occurs 14 days prior to next expected period, ovulation days may be one day plus or minus, sperms can survive for 48 hours & ovum for 24 hours, so in one with regular 28 days cycle pregnancy likely day 11-16.

I was with a guy and the condom was left inside and I didn't release until later. There's no contraception pills available in Poland without prescription and tomorrow's Sunday so I can't get any. How to make sure I don't get pregnant?

General Physician,
though a condom is left inside if the condom is intact there are less chances of seamen has entered in. but if you are not sure emergency contraceptive pills are the only cure. but if you are in the safe period of your cycle you will not need any tablets

As you r just 14 years of age, your hormonal secretion is not yet established yet, causing hormonal imbalance and nipple pain. You can take pain killer if pain is severe other wise it will go without any treatment.

Here's How To Successfully Lose Weight Like Anant Ambani + A Sample Diet Plan!

The past couple of days have witnessed trending news in the form of the stunning transformation of Anant Ambani, son of Mukesh Ambani, MD of Reliance Industries Limited. Anant, who had previously been burdened with excessive body weight due to intake of some strong medications, has achieved an unbelievable target of losing 108 Kgs of body weight in just 18 months!

Many people suffer from obesity and many other conditions as an aftereffect of excessive body weight, but don't know how to address the issue to attain a healthy weight. In this regard, the story of Anant is an inspirational lesson for all those who want to lose weight and follow a strict diet plan and exercise regime continuously to achieve their goals. Just like him, now you too can attain a healthy body weight and a fit physique too through the techniques mentioned below:

1. Following an Appropriate Diet Plan - A healthy diet is the key to a good weight loss regime besides the implementation of an effective exercise plan. Anant had opted for a strict low-carb diet without the presence of sugar. This type of diet has a lot of benefits including weight loss in a healthy way. This type of diet requires you to avoid all types of processed food items including breads, soft drinks, cereals, pastas, sweets etc. And increase the intake of foods rich in healthy fats and proteins.

2. Weight and Functional Training - Weight training is known for burning calories and functional training helps in increasing your core stability through exercises like squats, stretches, lunges etc. A combination of these two in your exercise regime will not only help you lose weight, but will also enable you to do it in a healthy way.

3. High-intensity Cardio Exercises - High-intensity cardio exercises are recommended by most gym instructors to people who want to lose weight as they increase your heart rate and consume lesser amount of time to eliminate the extra fat from your body.

4. Yoga - There’s no better way to stay fit and healthy than making yoga a part of your daily lifestyle. This ancient tradition not only tones your muscles and burn calories, but also gives you a healthier life by helping you relax your mind and body both. This was also one of the techniques followed by Anant to reach his destination of a having a healthy body.

We've put together a sample diet plan exclusively for you, which can help you lose weight in a healthy natural way:

Early Morning (6:30 am - 7:00 am) - a glass of warm water + 1/2 lemon juice + pinch of salt; walk for 30 minutes.

Breakfast (8:00am - 9:00 am) - 1 cup milk/tea, with fruit, oats with milk/namkeen oats, veg. Dalia, veg. Upma, veg. Poha, veg. Sandwich, 2 egg whites/1 whole egg and toast.

Mid-Morning (11:30 am) - fruit/sprouts

Lunch (1:00 pm - 2:00 pm) - 2 chapattis with vegetable, salad, dal/curd/idli + sambhar (alternatively, if you want to have 1 bowl rice, have it with 1 katori rajma/kadhi/dal/chhole + salad)

Tea-Time (4:30pm - 5:00pm) - tea/coffee + 2 biscuits/rusks

Evening Snacks (6:00 pm - 6: 30pm) - roasted chana, sprouts, popcorn, veg sandwich, sometimes 4-5 almonds, walnuts, pista, raisins

Dinner (8:00 pm - 8:30 pm) - 1-2 chapattis with vegetable, salad or 1-2 veg sandwiches, or roasted chicken/grilled fish (if non-vegetarian)

Post-Dinner (if required, at 10:00 pm) - 1 cup of milk.

We hope the above suggestions and the sample diet plan will inspire you to embark on a journey of transforming yourself into a healthier and happier person! There's no happiness better than feeling good about yourself!

Itchy skin in pregnancy and postpartum is a common complaint. Sometimes itching in pregnancy is caused by “PUPPS Rash” and having PUPPS rash postpartum can happen after the birth of your baby. It can be a huge inconvenience when you are dealing with a newborn and lack of sleep. PUPPS rash postpartum tends to look like hives. Here are the symptoms: Rash consisting of bumps and redness. May spread to arms, thighs, buttocks, and breasts. Itching that can be severe for around a week. Itch clears before the rash. Stretch marks with rash around them. Fatigue due to lack of sleep from itching at night. The following home remedies have been found helpful in taking care of PUPPS rash postpartum at home: Nettle or Dandelion Tea. Drink two cups daily of the organic brand. Flaxseed Oil. Take two tablespoons in a cup of milk. Chickweed Gel. Apply 3 to 4 times daily to the affected area. Pine Tar Soap. Use with each shower with warm water, not hot. Works in 2 to 5 days. Olive Oil. Do not dry off after your shower or bath, but apply olive oil to your wet skin and then pat dry. Coconut Oil. Apply to the rash twice daily. Banana Peel. Rub a banana peel to the rash a few times a day. Baking Soda. Make a baking soda and water paste and apply it to the rash. Corn Starch. Make a paste and apply to rash areas to help relieve itching.

Hi,PCOD cannot be cured completely.But you can keep the hormonal changes due to PCO under control by way of exercise.The one and only remedy is exercise and weight control.Other medications are temporary according to the need that time like regularising the period in unmarried women,ovulation induction in married women wanting to have baby like tthat.Exercise.

I have pcod and I did not get periods since 3months. My friend suggested me to take ipill to get menses with in a week. Shall I take ipill or not please help me.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
I-pill is an emenrgency contraceptive pill and it does not have enough progesterone to bring menses. Deviry tablet for 5 days will definitely bring your menses. You need to reduce your weight to get regular menses and every 3 months deviry to be taken if no menses by then.
