It would be best to start insulin for you. But do so only under your diabetologist's advice. Also, undergo a complete evaluation to look for complications because they can influence your planned pregnancy.

If you are sure you can not be pregnant then take progesterone for withdrawal bleeding. But you have to do some tests to know the cause of this missed period.

I have older women fetish, whenever I see any woman in her mid 30's or early 40's, I get turned on. I also want to lose virginity to an older woman, but I am not finding any. Please help me to get rid of this fetish.

Dear user. I can understand. Treatment of fetishism usually involves some method of aversion therapy, but unfortunately this kind of medical care usually carries a low rate of success. Aversion therapy is done by introducing other stimuli to the subject and is done through one or two ways. I suggest online aversion therapy. Take care.

Hypothyroidism irregular menstrual period is one of the commonest symptoms. Along with that there may be some times excess flow. Since you are on treatment for just 2 months, it may take a bit longer for complete recovery from symptoms. When treatment is effective tsh levels should be between 3 to 4 milli units/ml. If that is achieved then most symptoms will be in check.

9 Home Remedies To Increase Female Libid

Alternative Medicine Specialist, Delhi
9 Home Remedies To Increase Female Libid
Female libido is a fluctuating pendulum on which many women hang with uncertainty. Many researchers suggest that the ever fluctuating hormones in a woman’s body finally take a toll during her middle age and lead to varying degrees of sexual problems.

It is mostly men who use pills

1.Avocados

Known as a natural aphrodisiac, taking avocados can help attain a heightened sexual energy that was hitherto absent in your sexual life. Avocados are rich in potassium, vitamin B6, folic acid etc. which have a great role to play in increasing female libido. Potassium helps in increasing thyroid function which will again increase female sexual urge. Vitamin B6 encourages the production of male hormones and folic acid is essential for metabolizing proteins in the body.



2.Bananas

Again, a pleasant fruit that is rich in potassium and vitamin B, which are nutrients that are required for optimum sexual satisfaction and production of testosterone, bananas produce energy for the person and this help to increase sexual libido of men as well as women. Bananas can be included in your daily diet to attain maximum benefit.



3.Oysters

Oysters are rich in zinc which is essential for male sexual health. Zinc helps in production of testosterone and production of sperms in the body. Raw oysters can be cleaned thoroughly and can be taken after freezing it.



4.Asparagus

Asparagus helps in producing sex hormones in the body. They are high in vitamin E and are good for increasing the sexual libido of men and women. As they are easily available, asparagus can be taken on a daily basis.



5.Eggs

Rich in vitamin B6 and B5 that is necessary for reducing stress levels in the body, eggs not only help in increasing sexual libido, but also balance the hormone levels in the body which too impact sexual libido a great deal.



6.Celery

Celery is a great vegetable that can be added to your soups and salads. Androsterone, a hormone that is released through the perspiration of men is a hormone that is similar to pheromones that help in attracting females in animals.



Androsterone is supposed to help in increasing the sexual desire of women. As celery is a healthy vegetable and has as pleasant taste, it is something which can be taken by everyone.

7.Figs

Figs contain amino acids that are helpful in increasing female libido.  Taking figs every day will also enhance your sexual libido.



8.Licorice Root

Licorice is helpful for women who have vaginal dryness due to estrogen fluctuation in the body. Licorice root can be taken in 2-3 ml quantities 2-3 times a day or as directed by the physician. They are also very beneficial in improving female libido.



9.Ginseng

Ginseng is a herb that is widely popular for sexual problems. It has a chemical that aids in the production of sex hormones in both men and women. Ginseng also increases blood circulation and provides energy to the body which too is good for overall sexual healthls.

7 Foods That You Should Be Eating on a Daily Basis

Dietitian/Nutritionist,
7 Foods That You Should Be Eating on a Daily Basis

There are certain foods that you should be eating on a regular basis to improve your overall health. These foods contain the necessary micro and macro nutrients to nourish your body and allow it to function optimally.

The 7 foods that you should include in your diet are:

  1. Brown rice: Opt for the whole grain variety instead of white rice, as brown rice contains complex carbohydrates instead of simple carbohydrates. Brown rice provides energy to the body without spiking the blood sugar levels. It is also a good source of trace minerals like manganese, phosphorus and selenium.
  2. Eggs: A boiled egg is, without a shade of doubt, one of the best superfoods that you can come across. An egg packs a powerful nutritious punch that contains protein, vitamin D, selenium, zinc and copper. Apart from being nutritious, it is an inexpensive source of protein.
  3. Apples: You must have heard the age old proverb that 'An apple a day keeps the doctor away'and it stands good even today with good reason. Apples are good sources of antioxidants, flavonoids and fiber that help in reducing the risk of blood pressures problems and diabetes. Apples are also known to reduce levels of bad cholesterol in the body. You can also take the package for Eating Right.
  4. Spinach: Spinach is a superfood that contains good amounts of vitamin C, and various antioxidants that help in maintaining optimal functioning of the body. It is also known for its anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory properties.
  5. Yogurt: Yogurt is a good source of protein and calcium that you may use as a part of fat loss diet. Yogurt also contains healthy probiotic bacteria that promote healthy digestion.
  6. Fish: Fish contains protein in good amounts, the variety of amino acids content in fish helps in improving metabolism in the body. It also helps in building muscle and losing fat. Fish contains Omega-3 acids which help promote a healthy nervous system.
  7. Garlic: Consumption of garlic on a regular basis is known to keep the body free from toxins due to its antibiotic properties. The high sulfur content of garlic boosts immunity levels in the body and protects it from common cold and cough.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a specilized dietitian-nutritionist and ask a free question.

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome(PCOS) - Know Everything About It!!

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome(PCOS) - Know Everything About It!!

PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) is also known as PCOD. PCOS is a hormonal and metabolic disorder of women which has negative impact on their cardiovascular and reproductive health. Exact cause of PCOS is not known but both genetic and environmental factors play a role in it's development. It is known to run in families. 

Clinical features of PCOS 

Classically PCOS is described as triad of hyperandrogenemia, anovulatory cycles and polycystic ovaries on ultrasound. Any two of these three clinical features are enough to diagnose condition. 

Common symptoms of PCOS

Symptoms of PCOS are irregular cycles with episodes of heavy bleeding, infertility, thick and dark hair growth over face and trunk, acne, male pattern hair loss over forehead. Many of these girls and women are overweight or obese. People with PCOS are at increased risk of diabetes mellitus and heart diseases. 

Diagnostic tests 

To diagnose PCOS, few blood tests to see your hormone levels and ultrasound scan of pelvis are done. Simultaneously patients need to undergo blood tests to assess their metabolic health and to rule out other hormonal disorders which can have similar clinic presentation as in PCOS. 

Treatment 

Lifestyle modification is first and most important for patients of all age group. They should exercise regularly and maintain normal weight. Then depending on patients symptoms oral tablets are given either to manipulate hormone levels or their action. With treatment, patients have good quality of healthy life. These medicines make menstrual cycle regular, reduce abnormal hair growth over face and trunk, improve glucose tolerance and improve fertility. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Endocrinologist.
