Tongue cleaning is as important as brushing and flossing. Use of a proper tongue scraper every morning will remove tongue plaque and freshen your breath.

Hi, OC pills suppress the ovulation. Normally, it takes about 2-3 months to restore it's normal functioning. So, please wait for another 2-3 months. There are chances of conception even earlier to it.

U have not mentioned the age, marital status etc. If the white discharge is coming with fever then your friend may be suffering from infection. She needs to take proper antibiotics and analgesics. For more queries you may consult privately.

Post Cesarean Wound Infection - How It Can be Prevented?

Post Cesarean Wound Infection - How It Can be Prevented?

Having a baby is nothing less than a dream come true, but it comes with its own share of problems for new mothers. A lot of women today are opting for a C-section, or a Cesarean surgery to deliver their babies. While it is safe for most, at times certain complications can arise as a result of the operation.

As if life for mothers wasn’t tough already, post Cesarean wound infection is another concern some new mothers have to face. It usually occurs due to a bacterial infection in the area where the incision was made during surgery. If you have recently had a C-section, look out for signs in the first couple of weeks such as fever (100.5ºF to 103ºF), wound sensitivity and pain in the lower abdomen area. Other symptoms include swelling at the incision point or in the legs, discharge from the wound, smelly vaginal discharges or blood clots and difficulty in passing urine. If you notice any of these signs, act fast and consult your gynaecologist at the earliest, to avoid complications from the infection.

Why does it happen?
There can be various reasons that an infection happens, just like on any other part of the body where a wound is exposed. Generally, it is more prevalent among obese or overweight women or those taking any form of steroids. Other causes include, an incision closed with staples or nylon sutures, in cases of an emergency C-section, or from an infection of the amniotic sac.

Types and Treatment
C-section wound infections are of two types that is Cellulitis or wound abscess and thrush.

  1. Cellulitis and wound abscesses are caused by bacteria and are treated with antibiotics. If you’re in the hospital, you will be given the antibiotics intravenously, but if not, they can be taken orally as well. In case of abscesses, the pus is first drained out and smeared with antiseptic before being covered with gauze, after which the wound will heal on its own.
  2. Thrush is caused by a fungal infection and is normally seen in women taking steroids or in those who have a weak immune system. Anti-fungal drugs are provided to combat the issue.

How can it be prevented?
Here are some things new moms can do to prevent the C-section wound from getting infected:

  1. Regular follow-up visits with your obstetrician
  2. Practising good hygiene and healing
  3. Stay hydrated and drink plenty of fluids
  4. Avoiding any strenuous exercises that may put pressure on the abdomen area and stitches
  5. Resting as much as possible

Remember, even if you do develop an infection, it can be treated if addressed in time. New mothers need to take extra care of themselves, as a healthy mom, makes a happy mom!

Is It OK To Have Less Water in Colder Months of the Year?

POST GRADS IN DIETETICS AND APPLIED NUTRITION, B.SC (H) IN FOOD AND NUTRITION
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Secunderabad
Is It OK To Have Less Water in Colder Months of the Year?
How many glasses of water should you really have?

The onset of winter lowers temperatures and also initiates the loss of moisture from your body due to dryness. In this season, your body requires more fluids to eliminate possibilities of chapped lips, acne, flaky skin and dry cough. So, to cope with the reduced moisture level of your body, the right amount of water intake is necessary.

How does your body lose water even when you sweat less?

Winter, unlike the other seasons of the year, is devoid of hot, sunny days, but that doesn’t mean that your body is free from water loss. Generally, heat generated by furnaces, heaters and fires are the reasons behind sweating in winter. Also, water leaves your body during winters through the steamy breath you exhale when exposed to lower temperatures.


What are the risks of drinking less water in winters?

Dehydration in winters can negatively affect your body, ranging from causing common cold or flu to serious issues like stroke. Moreover, when your body lacks hydration, you may experience bizarre appetite patterns. This is caused due to the fact that less fluid consumption results in lack of energy in the body. This leads your body towards utilising the available fat for energy, making you thirsty, which is often misunderstood as hunger.


So how much water should you drink on cold winter days?
The amount of water intake required in winter varies from person to person due to the difference in gender and physical activities performed by a person throughout the day. However, amount of water intake in winters may be approximated as follows:

1. For Men: 8 to 10 glasses of water consumption per day is ideal for men with normal activity levels

2. For Women: Commonly, women should drink between 6 to 8 glasses of water throughout the day to keep themselves healthy

3. For Men Who Workout: Men with a regular exercise regime should have a raised water consumption amount of 10 to 14 glasses every day

4. For Women Who Workout: Women who exercise daily should increase their water intake to 8 to 12 glasses each day

5. For Lactating Mothers: In case of lactating/breast feeding mothers, 7 to 10 glasses of water intake per day is considered to be ideal

Sticking to these many glasses a day during winters can prove to be difficult for people facing extreme climates; but there are certain things you can do to increase your water consumption.

How can you increase your water consumption?

There are numerous ways, which let you increase your water consumption during winters without directly drinking water. These are-

1. Include more water based fruits (watermelons, pineapples, grapes etc) and vegetables (radish, spinach, cauliflower etc) in your daily diet to hydrate your body

2. Train yourself to drink water all through your workout session by timing your water intake at regular intervals

3. Have a bowl of hot soup before your meals to increase your intake of water

4. Use a humidifier to inhale moist air instead of the dry air prevalent during winter

Water intake plays a vital role in the proper functioning of the human body and is as important in winter as in other seasons.

I had a skin tag removed from my vagina about 3 weeks ago. Now it looks like my vagina has been butchered and you can see my insides. How long does it take for a vagina to reshape and go back to looking norm?

Dear Lybrate user It is highly unlikely to be due to skin tag removal. It must be the same before the procedure. U may hve just noticed it now. Visit the doctor who did the procedure for clarity.

Hello, There is no harm actually but there are chances of vaginal bacterial infection on the rise as menstrual blood is a good medium for bacterial growth. Regards

I am 34 years with two children born by surgery. Now my husband not showing interest for sex because of loose vagina. I am doing k-gel exercise too. But no use. Please suggest a medical gel/cream to make my vagina tight.

At this age, tightening of vagina is possible with ayurvedic pessaries. These tablets increase blood flow to vagina making it tighter without any side effects. Just let me know your height and weight so as to arrive at perfect prescription.
