I m pregnant for 1 month please suggest some good food to help grow up the baby and also for me I cant get over weight and body shape destroyed?

MBBS, DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology), (MRCOG)
Gynaecologist, Chennai
First, dont eat for 2. That is an old concept and the main cause for weight gain and loss of shape etc. Eat healthy foods, lots of fruits and vegetables. Have milk/curds. The first 3 months you may not feel like eating much, and that is ok. Eat when hungry and what you feel like. Avoid sweets, fried foods, cakes, bakery foods etc. Have them very occasionally. Finally have happy thoughts and positive thoughts about the outcome of the pregnancy. All will be fine.

Why girls wanted to go for pee imideate after sex? Nd why white blood comes from vagina after 2 3 days of sex?

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
It is good idea for females to empty their bladder before and after sexual intercourse because it is one way to prevent urinary tract infections (UTI). The anus is pretty darn close to the vagina. This means that fecal bacteria is also nearby, even in the cleanest of women. This situation plus sex can have an unpleasant outcome. UTI’s are usually caused by a bacteria called E. Coli which travel from her colon to the urethra and bladder. Since these three areas of her body are in close vicinity to one another, sexual intercourse facilitates the E. Coli to be transferred from the rectal area up into the urethra. Once the bacteria is situated in the urethra it multiplies, thus causing a UTI. Naturally, however any sexual activity that irritates the urethra puts pressure on the bladder, making her want to urinate. If she is having problems urinating, try drinking more water and other fluids. In order to prevent irritation to the urethra, try to avoid prolonged direct clitoral stimulation and make sure her vagina is lubricated. Rear entry positions and prolonged vigorous intercourse tends to put additional stress on her urethra. This is also why partners should not switch to vaginal intercourse right after anal sex. Emptying out your bladder before having sex flushes existing E. Coli out of your urethra. Urinating after sex prevents E. Coli from settling into female Urethera which may ultimately cause a UTI. It is not the white blood but is a natural vaginal discharge which comes out due to sexual stimulation and it is normal until and unless it is not irritating, itchy and smelly.

All about Dengue

MD
General Physician, Gurgaon
All about Dengue
Dengue (deng-gey) fever is a mosquito-borne disease that occurs in tropical and subtropical areas of the world. Mild dengue fever causes high fever, rash, and muscle and joint pain. A severe form of dengue fever, also called dengue hemorrhagic fever, can cause severe bleeding, a sudden drop in blood pressure (shock) and death.

Millions of cases of dengue infection occur worldwide each year. Dengue fever is most common in southeast asia and the western pacific islands, but the disease has been increasing rapidly in latin america and the caribbean.

Researchers are working on dengue fever vaccines. For now the best prevention is to reduce mosquito habitat in areas where dengue fever is common.

Symptoms:
Many people, especially children and teens, may experience no signs or symptoms during a mild case of dengue fever. When symptoms do occur, they usually begin four to 10 days after you are bitten by an infected mosquito. Signs and symptoms of dengue fever most commonly include:

Fever, as high as 106 f (41 c)
Headaches
Muscle, bone and joint pain
Pain behind your eyes
You might also experience:

Widespread rash
Nausea and vomiting
Rarely, minor bleeding from your gums or nose
Most people recover within a week or so. In some cases, symptoms worsen and can become life-threatening. Blood vessels often become damaged and leaky. And the number of clot-forming cells (platelets) in your bloodstream drops. This can cause:

Bleeding from your nose and mouth
Severe abdominal pain
Persistent vomiting
Bleeding under the skin, which might look like bruising
Problems with your lungs, liver and heart

Prevention:
If you are living or traveling in tropical areas where dengue fever is common, these tips may help reduce your risk of mosquito bites:

Stay in air-conditioned or well-screened housing. It's particularly important to keep mosquitoes out at night.
Reschedule outdoor activities. Avoid being outdoors at dawn, dusk and early evening, when more mosquitoes are out.
Wear protective clothing. When you go into mosquito-infested areas, wear a long-sleeved shirt, long pants, socks and shoes.
Use mosquito repellent. Permethrin can be applied to your clothing, shoes, camping gear and bed netting. You can also buy clothing made with permethrin already in it. For your skin, use a repellent containing at least a 10 percent concentration of deet.
Reduce mosquito habitat. The mosquitoes that carry the dengue virus typically live in and around houses, breeding in standing water that can collect in such things as used automobile tires. Reduce the breeding habitat to lower mosquito populations.

I am having a PCOD problem, because of this irregular periods. Can you please help me with this? Whether this problem will be cured?

Miss lybrate-user, as you told you have pcod problem. Basically it is due to hormone imbalance. There are number of reasons for that, it is mainly due to faulty food habits and life style. Stress and anxiety are also main cause of hormonal imbalance. So our line of treatment should have to include all these factors too. Our brain has its own biological clock and it work according to that- like -time of hunger, time for bowel clearance etc. So we must follow this clock. Deviation from it leads to number of disease. Do daily walk take your meal on time, so that it is properly digested, nothing is more important than digestion of food. Make sure that your bowel moment is ok. Do yoga and pranayam - asana, kapalbhati is very good in pcod. Tere are lots of ayurvedic medicine which are helpful in it. Consult for proper medication.

Will Ayurveda take a long time to improve or cure my problem?

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Faridabad
Will Ayurveda take a long time to improve or cure my problem?
Will ayurveda take a long time to improve or cure my problem?

One of the fundamental principles of ayurveda is to treat a patient on a holistic level. Instead of just providing relief from symptoms, it identifies the root cause of the disease and aims to give you a permanent cure, wherever possible. Instead of a short-term cure and instant relief, ayurveda focuses on giving you long-term health and well-being, which is bound to take some time.

Similar to any type of treatment, the time taken for improvement or cure of your disease in ayurveda depends upon the severity and type of your disease. The stage at which you go for ayurveda treatment makes a huge difference. If you have been living it for the last 5-10 years, you can't expect to see improvements in a few weeks. The longer you wait to go for ayurveda treatment, the longer it will take to get relief and treat the condition. However, if you sincerely follow the diet and lifestyle advice given to you by your ayurveda doctor, and take your medicines regularly on time, ayurveda treatment is sure to show improvements in a relatively shorter period of time.

Sometimes, MTP can lead to infection, but not always. Consult doctor with your husband and find out the exact cause. But frankly speaking, I feel you can try for one year before consulting

Ayurveda, Narnaul
Hello Dear,Periods occur when the egg formed during each menstrual cycle in the female body is not fertilized and hence ejected out of the reproductive system along with blood and several other tissue cells. The duration of each menstrual cycle is about 28 days Most women will experience their monthly period right from the time they are 13 to the time they are 50. For many women, their monthly period is nothing more than an annoyance; but other women may suffer some problems. Visit us at www.Malhotraayurveda.Com

Gluten Free Diet

M.Sc. in Dietetics and Food Service Management , Post Graduate Diploma In Computer Application, P.G.Diploma in Clinical Nutrition & Dietetics , B.Sc.Clinical Nutrition & Dietetics
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
Gluten Free Diet

Allowed foods - Many healthy and delicious foods are naturally gluten-free like beans, seeds and nuts in their natural, unprocessed form fresh eggs, fresh meats, fish and poultry (not breaded, batter-coated or marinated), Fruits and vegetables, most dairy products. It's important to make sure that they are not processed or mixed with gluten-containing grains, additives or preservatives. Many grains and starches can be part of a gluten-free diet such as: amaranth arrowroot buckwheat corn and cornmeal flax, gluten-free flours (rice, soy, corn, potato, bean), hominy (corn). Millet quinoa rice, sorghum Soy, tapioca Ttff needs to be avoided.  Avoid all food and drinks containing: barley (malt, malt flavoring and malt vinegar are usually made from barley), rye Triticale (a cross between wheat and rye), wheat. Avoiding wheat can be challenging because wheat products go by numerous names. Consider the many types of wheat flour on supermarket shelves bromated, enriched, phosphated, plain and self-rising. Here are other wheat products to avoid: durum flour, farina graham flour, kamut semolina spelt avoid unless labeled'gluten-free'. In general, avoid the following foods unless they're labeled as gluten-free or made with corn, rice, soy or other gluten-free grain. Beer, breads, cakes and pies, candies and cereals, communion wafers, cookies and crackers, croutons French fries, gravies imitation meat or seafood Matzo, pastas, processed luncheon meats, salad dressing sauces, including soy sauce, seasoned rice mixes, seasoned snack foods, such as potato and tortilla chips, self-basting poultry Soups and soup bases Vegetables in sauce, certain grains, such as oats, can be contaminated with wheat during growing and processing stages of production. For this reason, doctors and dietitians generally recommend avoiding oats unless they are specifically labeled gluten-free. You should also be alert for other products that you eat or that could come in contact with your mouth that may contain gluten. These include: food additives, such as malt flavoring, modified food starch and others medications and vitamins that use gluten as a binding agent.

Symptoms and Causes of Depression

Symptoms and Causes of Depression

Although confused with natural and temporal feelings of grief or sadness, depression is not merely a weakness or something to be taken lightly. It is quite a serious issue and can last for long periods of time.

2. Bipolar depression
3. Psychotic depression
4. Chronic depression (even dysthymia)
5. Seasonal depression
6. Substance-induced depression
7. Postpartum depression
8. Double depression
9. Treatment-resistant depression
10. Secondary depression
11. Masked depression

Symptoms: Signs and symptoms of clinical depression can vary depending largely on how severe it is, how long it lasts and how often it comes into play, and differs from individual to individual. While some might experience but a few signs of depression, others might experience more. Here is a list of symptoms that might indicate that you may be suffering from depression:

2. Feeling guilty or worthless almost every day
3. More inclined towards pessimism
4. Insomnia or hypersomnia
