Why don't do uring pregnancy test. Even if you see pregnancy by usg you need to repeat after one wk. To see whether baby is ok or not. Be coz fetal rate may not b seen.

If its unprotected sex then you can take I pill or unwanted 72. But these pills are not to be taken frequently and if possible use other contraceptive measures like copper T or contraceptive pills so as to avoid taking pills in future.

Hi lybrate-user. Do not worry. U shud increase the amount of green vegetables in yur diet. That wud help. Try having a cup of warm milk at bedtime. Also there are sum medicines for this kind of a problem which can be prescribed. These are safe and do not have any side effects and most importantly. These are not habit forming. So if yu are keen you can get back to me for a prescription.

Diabetic Diet - What To Eat What Not To

MBBS, MD - General Medicine
General Physician, Chennai
Diabetic Diet  - What To Eat What Not To

Eat more Healthy fats from raw nuts, olive oil, fish oils, flax seeds, whole milk dairy, or avocados fruits and vegetables ideally fresh, the more colorful the better; whole fruit rather than juices high-fiber cereals and breads made from whole grains or legumes fish and shellfish, organic, free-range chicken or turkey high-quality protein such as eggs, beans, milk, cheese, and unsweetened yogurt

Focus on high-fiber complex carbohydrates also known as slow-release carbs. They are digested more slowly, thus preventing your body from producing too much insulin.

Eat less 

Trans fats from partially hydrogenated or deep-fried foods packaged and fast foods, especially those high in sugar, baked goods, sweets, chips, desserts white bread, sugary cereals, refined pastas or rice processed meat and red meat from animals fed with antibiotics, growth hormones, and GMO feed low-fat products that have replaced fat with added sugar, such as fat-free yogurt

Carbohydrates have a big impact on your blood sugar levels more so than fats and proteins so you need to be smart about what types of carbs you eat. Limit refined carbohydrates like white bread, pasta, and rice, as well as soda, candy, packaged meals, and snack foods.

Hello- There are few general pregnancy diet rules that mothers can follow. Throughout the day the mommy-to-be should eat every now and then, preferably 5 times a day - three regular meals and two small meals or snacks during the day. Consuming products prepared from whole grain like chappatis, breads, pasta and noodles. Just as a lay person it is important to consume five servings of fresh fruits and vegetables. One should continue this habit even after pregnancy. Cut out high calorie food and fatty foods too. This would include consuming low calorie dairy products and lean non veg ingredients. It is advisable to reduce the intake of sugary food products. Increase in blood sugar levels could increase your chances of gestational diabetes. Healthy eating during pregnancy means avoiding these food ingredients and products: - Alcohol - One of the reasons is that, even moderate drinking in pregnancy may affect child's IQ. - Avoid calorie rich food, food cooked in oil, poultry with fat on it. - Avoid drinking preserved or packaged juices, it contains additional sugar and preservatives. - Lastly, remember your diet has to be well balanced.

My wife has saggy breasts. She is worried as she is only 24 (no child) and wants to know if this can be cured in anyway. Her height is 5ft and weight is 77 kg.

Dear,God has made undoubtedly ladies lovely. Ladies with a legitimately shaped and proportionate body are truly engaging. Women with low breast size use armored bras or silicon-stuffed bras, and some even put cotton, paper or silicon extensions into their bras? bonnets to look sexier and have bigger breasts shape. An undersized-breasts woman keeps feeling anxious and uncomfortable anytime she gets undressed by her partner. Adding to that, she loses self esteem and confidence and this brings even more stress into the couple.

3 Essential Tips to Prevent Back Pain

MBBS, MD - Anaesthesiology, DNB Anaesthesiology, PDCC - Pain Management
Pain Management Specialist, Mumbai
3 Essential Tips to Prevent Back Pain

Back pain is one of the most common debilitating disorder in the world today. The pain affects 90% of people at some point of their lives. Human back comprises of various structures (see figure) which are nerves, bones, muscles, ligaments, and tendons, any or all of which can be a source of pain. Once back pain occurs, it may become chronic (more than 4 weeks) and you shall need to consult a pain physician for relief and accurate diagnosis.

Since prevention is always better than cure,  you can save yourself from having back pain if you follow these basic tips:

  1. Regular Exercise in Correct Form: Regular exercise is important to maintain proper muscular strength of the back. Human back is supported by several big muscle groups (see figure). They serve two functions - one is to facilitate the posture and movements of the back itself and the other is to help movements of the rest of the body appendages (arms, head, pelvis and legs).The health of these muscle group is important to take stress off the spinal bones and maintain proper function. Most of these muscles are red muscle fibers as they need to maintain their activity for prolonged periods of time. Just to give you an idea - your biceps (arm muscles) have to work only when you bend your arm. But your back muscles have to function all the time - whether you sit, walk, stand or even sleep. But the point is what kind of exercises are good for your back? The best exercises for back include body weight low impact aerobics like brisk walking, swimming, stationary bicycling, extension exercises and yoga. What is important to remember while doing these exercises if that you need to be gentle in your movements and achieve correct "form" - this is possible if you can ask someone (preferably a trainer) to observe and point out whether the back stays straight during the exercise. It has been seen that arching and excessive bending is associated with injury to the back while exercising.

  2. Stay Hydrated and Eat Natural Nutritious diet:The inter vertebral discs contain 70 - 80% water. The muscles and tissues have 60% water content. Therefore, it is important to stay hydrated. In addition, you must eat a nutritious diet consisting of green leafy vegetables, good protein source and just enough carbohydrates. Deficiencies of essential nutrients like Vitamin D can result in diseases like osteoporosis. Another important aspect is to maintain body weight within healthy limits. This is very important as increased belly fat is linked to increased back pain due to mechanical factors.

  3. Lift objects correctly and maintain proper posture: While lifting objects, keep them as close to body as possible. Do not slouch or bend excessively while lifting. Just keep your back straight at all times. You may bend your knees a little if required (see figure). Think before you lift and get help if needed.

While working, you must not sit for more than 45 minutes at a stretch. Walk for two minutes, go to a colleague's desk and say hi or even just drink some water or visit the washroom. Humans evolved as hunter - gatherers and our bodies are more adapted to walking / standing than to sitting for prolonged periods. Those of you who travel more and have to sit for long periods of time also need to follow above tips - avoid prolonged sitting in same posture.While exercising, improper position can do more harm than good. Therefore, proper form and posture is a must.

Bonus tip: Avoid cigarette smoking and those who smoke cigarettes to decrease your chances of having degenerative disc diseases leading to chronic back pain early in life.

Word of caution to prevent permanent damage: In case of back pain, which is not responding to home remedies or over the counter painkillers, please contact a Pain Physician to pinpoint the diagnosis and appropriate management.

My wife is 35years old, recently jan 2015 we got married, we had 1st sex after a month, after that she neither got pregnant nor she having any periods. Its already 3rd month running but she dosent have any period. Kindly suggest what medicine we follow?

DGO, MBBS
Sexologist,
First do urine pregnancy test, if negative , do her blood sugar fasting level, TSH , Prolactin, FSH, Testosterone, Hb, TC, DC levels, ultrasound of pelvis, if want pregnancy then your semen analysis. If all these are normal then HSG x-ray to see the tubes. Without reports no advice is proper.
