Its not too early for detecting pregnancy if the results is negative then I suggest you do one more pregnancy test for confirmation if it shows negative then you was not pregnant due to hormonal disbalance or other gynecology problem, obesity, pcod etc some time cause of late menstrual period.

How to naturally beat sleep disturbance?

MBBS
General Physician
Ask Free Question
One of the main reasons for not getting proper sleep is that plans made during the day time or earlier, do not succeed and mind finds ways or speculates or wanders to find ways to make the the plans work. These mental speculations repeat in mind at time of sleeping. So, due to plans not working as the mind likes to, the mind remains in agitated state due to finding no way and thus leads to frustration which avoids mind to go into sleep mode. This leads to not getting proper sleep.

The solution is to not intentionally think further about plans, but with faith surrender to the supreme and instead of thinking about the plans it is better to read a nice book, listen to nice music or talks which do not allow mind to get frustrated with mental speculations. Drinking cow's milk in night before sleep also should help

I have a 1 question. On which age will produce milk in female breast. And on which age will come produce breast milk ...
Milk production in girls / women starts with pregnancy hormones called lh-lactational hormones which are secreted by pituatary gland present in brain, it can be a disease if pituatary is overactive due to any other disease in brain. Normal young girls do not produce milk. Sometimes a bit of water comes out through nipples, it is due to retention of water, just before the periods.

If she had regular and normal period just few days back pregnancy is not likely. This problem can be solved only if you take her to a qualified gynecologist for proper internal examination and diagnosis of the cause.

Diabetic Diet - What To Eat What Not To

MBBS, MD - General Medicine

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.
