lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. TSH 31.9 mU/L is too high and needs to be urgently brought down to around 2 mU/L. The range recommended for varioud trimesters is as follows: 1st Trimester: 0.1 to 2.5 mU/L, 2nd Trimester: 0.2 to 3 .0 mU/l & 3rd Trimester: 0.3 to 3 mU/L. Therefore it is best to maintain it around 2 mU/L during the pregnancy. If that is done, it will ensure proper development of fetus, as well as ensures desired outcome of pregnancy. Plus you should check TSH every 4 weeks to see if the level of TSH is maintained in that range.

Hello, first of all please do not get disheartened. Pcod may be a reason for infertility in few but many pco women have normal and natural conceptions. How are your tubes and ovulatory status? follow healthy lifestyle -diet rich in fibre and restrict intake of refined carbohydrates. Go for a regular brisk walk for 30 to 45 min daily. Along with these follow the medication given by your infertility consultant. You will surely conceive. Don't worry, all the best.

Health Benefits Of Almond Milk!

Health Benefits Of Almond Milk!

1. It helps with weight management.

One cup of almond milk contains only 60 calories, as opposed to 146 calories in whole milk, 122 calories in 2 percent, 102 calories in 1 percent, and 86 calories in skim. It makes for a great substitute that will help you lose or maintain your current weight.

2. It keeps your heart healthy.

There's no cholesterol or saturated fat in almond milk. It's also low in sodium and high in healthy fats (such as omega fatty acids, typically found in fish), which helps to prevent high blood pressure and heart disease.

3. It keeps your bones strong

While it doesn't offer as much calcium as cow's milk, almond milk does offer 30 percent of the recommended daily amount, as well as 25 percent of the recommended amount of vitamin d, reducing your risk for arthritis and osteoporosis and improving your immune function. Plus, these two nutrients work together to provide healthy bones and teeth formation.

4. It keeps your skin glowing.

Almond milk contains 50 percent of the recommended daily amount of vitamin e, which contains antioxidant properties essential to your skin's health, such as protecting it against sun damage.

5. It barely impacts your blood sugar.

Almond milk (with no additives) is low in carbs, which means it won't significantly increase your blood sugar levels, reducing your risk for diabetes. Because of its low glycemic index, your body will use the carbs as energy so the sugars aren't stored as fat (score!).

6. It contributes to muscle strength and healing.

Although almond milk only contains 1 gram of protein per serving, it contains plenty of b vitamins such as iron and riboflavin, both important for muscle growth and healing.

7. It keeps your digestion in check.

Almond milk contains almost one gram of fiber per serving, which is important for healthy digestion.

8. It doesn't contain lactose.

Lactose intolerance impacts about 25% of the us population, which means they have difficulty digesting the sugar in cow's milk. This makes almond milk a suitable, lactose-free substitute.

9. It tastes better than cow's milk.

Almond milk doesn't taste like cow's milk, perfect for those who are turned off by the taste. It has its own unique flavor many describe as being light and crisp. Bonus: it's versatile, meaning you can use it instead of cow's milk in recipes that require it. It won't have the same taste, but it will have the same consistency.

10. It doesn't require refrigeration.

Knowing that you don't have to refrigerate almond milk means you'll be more likely to take it with you to work, or on a camping trip. It's perfectly fine at room temperature which makes it a convenient, nutritious staple to pack, automatically upping your daily intake of all the fabulous nutrients above.

Can I have masturbating during my 6th month of pregnancy? And if it lead to orgasm, everything will be alright?

Can I have masturbating during my 6th month of pregnancy?

Hi Arpita. I understand the increase hormones during pregnancy can arouse a woman. Masturbation essentially is not harmful. But continuos stimulation and the uterine cramps that accompany an orgasm can trigger premature labour pains. So be very careful.

A woman on an average ovulates on 14 th day (+/- 2days )of her periods. So only relations during these days can make her pregnant . No chance of pregnancy in your case .

Precum usually do not have sperms but as it is immediately followed by proper ejaculation sometimes with short time between two one can not diffrentiate and some sperms present can cause pregnancy.

Menstrual flow decreases when there is anaemia. There are many other conditions also when menstrual flow decreases such as hormonal imbalance. At this stage I recommend you to have Hb test. Take tablet abhra loha if you r anaemic.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Vagina hole has the capacity to expand enough even to pass a baby through it. You need to use the method of foreplay so as to encourage vaginal muscles to expand. Take care.

Dear Lybrate user, The requirement of Eltroxin increases during pregnancy and reference levels are lower. It should be taken as Thyroid deficiency has an adverse effect on unborn baby. Baby's Thyroid Levels also will have to be done. Follow Doctor's advice.

7 Steps You Must Follow To Keep Your Kidneys Healthy!

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Nephrologist, Noida
7 Steps You Must Follow To Keep Your Kidneys Healthy!

If you are concerned about your health, it is important for you to keep your kidneys protected from several harmful conditions. There are several types of kidney disorders, which may develop if your kidneys are not well cared for. This may include overload of toxins, acute renal failure, chronic kidney disease and end-stage renal disease. Kidney cancer is another fatal threat.

Steps to keep your kidneys healthy
There are several ways you can undertake for keeping your kidneys safe. They include the following:

  1. Take certain tests for obtaining the panel reading of your BUN or blood urea nitrogen and creatinine levels. The estimated glomerular filtration rate (EGFR) must be determined as well. The scores obtained from these tests will tell you about the condition of your kidneys at that point of time.
  2. Lower the amount of phosphorous intake. When the kidney does not function properly, phosphorus accumulation is likely, which causes serious conditions like heart disorders and calcification of the tissues. You should avoid phosphorous-rich food items and abstain from drinking carbonated drinks.
  3. You must consume several kidney-supportive food items, which may include watermelon, cranberries, cabbage, cauliflower, blueberries, strawberries, apples, garlic, onions and olive oil.
  4. Obesity is linked with kidney cancer and hence, you must maintain a healthy weight. Carry out regular exercises.
  5. Several pain relievers such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or NSAIDS may have harmful side effects on the kidney and may lead to kidney cancer. Try to avoid these medicines.
  6. You can take an Epsom salt bath. This is a common measure for detoxification, and the wastes and toxins get removed, improving the kidney’s health rapidly. Have regular checkups of blood and urine along with ultra-sound to know kidneys are working good.
  7. You should keep your blood-sugar level and blood pressure under control as they are triggers for kidney failure. You should quit smoking and stop using tobacco in any form as the toxins from nicotine harm the kidneys.

With proper care and management of your kidneys, you will be able to prevent several harmful conditions.One should get Kidney function test and Ultrasound done to check that the kidney is functioning normally. 

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Your ultasound report will show the numbers of eggs generated on 14th day of cycle, regarding twins, it means 2 eggs getting fertilized simultaneously and nobody can predict about it, but yes chances of twin pregnancy increases if drugs are given for stimulation. Remember that if twin pregnancy happens, it is rarely identical twins, both are different looks.
