How to avoid pregnancy after 1 month? is there any pills available for it. Plz give me name of it ?

DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology)
Gynaecologist, Bangalore
There are no pills to prevent pregnancy after one month. However, pills are available to terminate pregnancy upto 49 days from the last period. Please see a Gynaecologist rather than trying something on your own.

My wife is 20 year old and she is suffering from PCOS andshe is taking Harmoni F tablet, 2 tab / day. And I hear from someone that PCOS patient did not give birth is is right. And I am 30 year old and suffering from hypothyroidism from last 2 years. And I am taking thyroxine 25mg/day. What will be the affect of Pcos and hypothyroidism to my baby? Me and my wife have fear that we we are not able to give birth.

Your hypothyroidism won't affect baby. Pcos patients have difficulty in conceiving. But most of them do conceive with medicines or other procedures. Once conception takes place, pcos doesn't harm baby.

Hi lybrate-user. The heart rate is usually slightly higher in pregnancy. However Your heart rate is much higher than the normal limits. Suggest to get an ECG or ECHO done to see if your heart is tolerating the pregnancy changes well. If this is associated with swelling of feet as well then do check with your Gynec about this.

Irregular cycles are normal. They tend to occur irregularly due to fluctuations in hormonal status of the body. It may also happen in some diseases like thyroid disorders, ovulation disorders etc post marriage too the irregularity may persist in few. This is not abnormal. If you both are concerned, meet a local gynecologist. The treatment of irregular menses is dependent on many factors: whetehr you want to conceive or want to avoid pregnancy. From your query it seems that you are trying for a pregnancy. If you are having regular sexual activity, then you can give your self a whole year to conceive. If you do not conceive in a year, after regular sexual activity, then you may consult a gynecologist for helping you achieve a pregnancy. You may get your wife investigated for her irregular cycles by doing blood tests, hormone tests and sonography and get treated as per the reports.

Milk - Should You Stand or Sit While Drinking it?

Milk - Should You Stand or Sit While Drinking it?

Have you heard of a controversy over, whether to drink milk standing or sitting? There are some scientific reasons, according to which, drinking milk in a sitting position is better and healthier than having it while standing. According to Ayurveda, milk is considered to be a vital and precious food item, and hence, you must ensure that you are drinking milk in the right posture.

You should sit while drinking milk
Scientifically, drinking milk while standing causes the fluid hit the lower part of your esophagus. Over time, this may result in the dilation or relaxation of the sphincter which connects the stomach to the esophagus. This may lead to a health condition known as GERD or Gastroesphegal reflux disease.

From Ayurvedic point of view, drinking milk or any fluid in a standing position is forbidden and advised against. Many scholars suggest that this norm exists because of health reasons. Moreover, drinking milk in a standing position may cause another issue. If you gulp down half a liter of milk, it goes into your stomach. The stomach’s capacity is between 900 to 1500 millimeters and on the consumption of the milk, it gets half full all of a sudden. This may cause the stomach to pulsate because of the volume of milk and it will also distend the stomach capacity because of weight. This may cause  colic shock resulting in intense abdominal pain.
If you sit down and drink milk, sip by sip, the stomach will not distend because of the support it gets from the stomach cavity, which is in turn is supported by your thighs.

Benefits of drinking milk
In Ayurveda, milk is a highly beneficial food, having several benefits. They are as follows:

  1. Milk is calming and cooling, which helps in balancing Vata and Pitta.
  2. According to Ayurveda, milk is considered to be the most calming and nourishing food. 
  3. It is a natural food for human beings, which they are accustomed to right from birth. 
  4. Milk is an aphrodisiac and helps in vitalizing the reproductive system, improving your sex drive and quality of sperms in men.
  5. When you want to correct obesity, it is a perfect food for satisfying hunger and thirst.
  6. Milk causes a sense of soothing and satisfaction in many different types of illnesses and diseases. 
  7. Milk is essential for your mind, for children and is also used for treating depression.

Although many people argue that there is no scientific reason associated with sitting and drinking milk to be safe, it has been scientifically proven that it is better to eat or drink anything while sitting, instead of standing. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a ayurveda and ask a free question.

She is 8 weeks pregnant so she want to remove because the heartbeat is not there.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Gurgaon
Hi t. Welcome to lybrate. If the heartbeat is not seen its best to terminate the pregnancy as it does not seem to be a viable pregnancy. Pregnancy can be safely terminated by medicines provided the correct dosage and technique is utilised. Since abortion laws in india are very strict, I would need the usg report to confirm the period of gestation before I can help you further. All the best. Let me know if I can be of any further help to you.

है। संधि शोथ को स्पर्श करने में भी पीड़ा
होती है। रात को अधिक पीड़ा होने से रोगी

संधि शोथ और शूल के कारण रोगी चलने-फिरने में
असमर्थ हो जाता है। उठकर खड़े होने में भी तीव्र
शूल होता है। संधिवात के कारण रोगी को ज्वर
भी हो जाता है। संधिवात के उग्र रूप धारण करने
पर रोगी की भूख नष्ट हो जाती है।
क्या खाएं?

के साथ सेवन करें।
* गर्म जल व दूध में मधु मिलाकर पीने से बहुत लाभ
होता है।

* मेथी का चूर्ण बनाकर प्रतिदिन 3 ग्राम चूर्ण
हल्के गर्म जल के साथ सेवन करने से संधिवात का
शूल कम होता है।
* संधिवात का रोगी कोष्ठबद्धता होने पर एरंड
का तेल 7-8 ग्राम की मात्रा में उबाले हुए दूध में
डालकर पिएं।
* अदरक के 5 ग्राम रस में मधु मिलाकर सेवन करने से
संधि शूल नष्ट होता है।
* महा नारायण तेल की संधि शोथ पर मालिश
करें।
* चुकंदर का सेवन करने से संधि शूल नष्ट होता है।
* प्याज के रस को सरसों के तेल में मिलाकर
हल्का-सा गर्म करके संधि शोथ पर मलने से बहुत
लाभ होता है।
* आलू की सब्जी खाने से शूल कम होता है।
* कुलथी को जल में उबालकर क्वाथ बनाएं। क्वाथ
को छानकर उसमें सोंठ का चूर्ण और सेंधा नमक
मिलाकर पिएं।
* अजवायन का 3 ग्राम चूर्ण थोड़ा-सा सेंधा
नमक मिलाकर हल्के गर्म जल के साथ सेवन करें।

Hello, Shilajit is not associated with any serious side effects. In cases where someone takes iron supplements along with shilajit, it could lead to building up of an excess iron in the blood, as Shilajit contains a pretty high amount of iron. In very rare cases, it could aggravate or lower the blood pressure. But apart from those three cases, Shilajit is perfectly safe even in higher than normal quantities. Be sure you’re getting the right stuff. It’s always a good idea to listen to your body and stop giving Shilajit, if you notice symptoms of an allergic reaction like nausea, dizziness, increased heart rate and itchiness etc. Also, if a very high dose is given, it may lead to uric acid levels which in turn can lead to higher bile levels resulting in more problems. So it’s always best to talk to your physician before taking any such supplements.
