Hi, we are expecting baby by december 2015. The doctor we are consulting has told us to take folic acid tablet only for 5 days. When I asked to 1 of my colleague, who recently had baby, she said it was prescribed for 3 months for her. Also the doctor has told us to get double marker test done. Are these test required or they are just money making tests. And shall I give folic acid tablet to my wife till 3 months of pregnancy.

Hi , yes folic acid tab. Must be taken daily for 1st 3 months during pregnancy double marker test is meant to detect whether down's syndrome is present in your unborn baby or not. It is combined with n t scan & accuracy is very high. Advantages of this screening are--- ~ good detection rates ~ if positive, it gives you time for another advanced test ~ if positive, you can go for termination of pregnancy.

As you r already suffering from pcod, menses can get delayed even with slight change in hormones. You have not mentioned your last menses date. If it is crossed the date by 7 days then urine test to be done and if negative keep repeating every week till you get menses. Myo-inisitol and duphaston have already proven by research to be not effective for treatment of pcod.

Mera baby mere pat me hi mar gaya tha 8 mahine me tab breast ka size kafi badh gaya. How to reduce it?

Mera baby mere pat me hi mar gaya tha 8 mahine me tab breast ka size kafi badh gaya. How to reduce it?
You must wait for about 6 months to a year and allow the breast to reduce by itself. Think of surgery only after 1 year There are good chances that it will regress by itself. REDUCTION MAMMOPLASTY- is the treatment,it is surgical reduction of breast size with very gratifying results attained in a very short time.Surgery takes 2 hours and you may not need to be hospitalised more than a day. No one wants surgery unless it is necessary.There is no medication to give the results.Surgery is the only answer.The surgery is almost painless because there are enough medications to keep the pain under control

Hello. You haven't mentioned the date of last delivery. You can take homoeopathic medicines - Pulsatilla 200/ one dose once a week for 1 month and Hamamelis Q (take only during the menses)/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water after every 2 hrly. Did you have calcium and iron tablets? If not, start with Calcarea Phos. 6x and Ferrum Phos. 6x - both thrice a day for 3 months. Revert me back.

This is the one thing you should not do before sex

This is the one thing you should not do before sex

This is the one thing you should NOT do before sex

Follow this tip for better sexual health and an even better orgasm

Do you have the habit if peeing before or after sex?

A Recent study has shown that urinating before sex makes it more likely that you will catch a urinary tract infection.

That it was a common misconception that one should pee before having sex, as opposed to keeping it in and releasing it only after the deed.

It is much safer and better for your health to pee after sex. It is actually mandatory that you do this. So the best thing you can do for your sexual health is to hold you pee until when you are done as having sex after peeing is the number one cause of post-coital urinary tract infections, also known as honeymoon cystitis.

'Bacteria have tiny pilli that act as Velcro hooks, which allow them to attach themselves to the urethral lining,' says the doctor, adding that holding on helps clear a possible infection by helping dislodge it.

Finally, he also mentioned that this mostly applies to females rather than males, as opposed to the usual thinking.

Most women have actually reported that holding their pee before sex has led to even deeper orgasm.

While the exact cause of PCOS is unknown, doctors believe that hormonal imbalances and genetics play a role. Women are more likely to develop PCOS if their mother or sister also has the condition. Overproduction of the hormone androgen may be another contributing factor. Androgen is a male sex hormone that women’s bodies also produce. Women with PCOS often produce higher-than-normal levels of androgen. This can affect the development and release of eggs during ovulation. Excess insulin (a hormone that helps convert sugars and starches into energy) may cause high androgen levels.

Is there any home remedy for the healing of the pcos. Is there any massaging oil to cure pcos.
Hello, PCOS or pcod s a problem in which a woman's hormones are out of balance. It can cause problems with your periods and make it difficult to get pregnant. PCOS also may cause unwanted changes in the way you look. If it isn't treated, over time it can lead to serious health problems, such as diabetes and heart disease. The most common symptoms are: Acne.Weight gain and trouble losing weight.Extra hair on the face and body.Thinning hair or even hair loss on scalp.Irregular periods. Often women with PCOS have fewer than nine periods a year. Some women have no periods. Others have very heavy bleeding.Fertility problems. Many women who have PCOS have trouble getting pregnant(infertility), depression. Regular exercise, healthy foods, and weight control are the key treatments for PCOS. Treatment (hormonal) can reduce unpleasant symptoms and help prevent long-term health problems. Try to fit in moderate activity and/or vigorous activity often. Brisk Walking, jogging, dance or aerobics are great exercise that most people can do.Eat heart-healthy foods. This includes lots of vegetables, fruits, nuts, beans, and whole grains. It limits foods that are high insaturated fat, such as meats, cheeses, and fried foods.Most women who have PCOS can benefit from losing weight. Even losing 5kg may help get your hormones in balance, regulate your menstrual cycle and can make you ovulate.

What is the treatment for thyroid and what is the period to take medicine and risk for take long time medicine.

What is the treatment for thyroid and what is the period to take medicine and risk for take long time medicine.
Mr Umesh, By mentioning thyroid, are you referring to hypothyroidism? If so then treatment is taking Thyroxine tablets (hormone replacement). This has to continue for life time. Because thyroxine is required for development and functioning of brain, plus an essential part of various vital metabolic activities. Hence it has to be made available daily. Since it is an essential hormone there are no side effects when taken in correct dosage.

5 Health Hacks for Busy Professionals

BHMS
Homeopath, Solan
5 Health Hacks for Busy Professionals
Integrate Activity into Your Everyday LifeVigorous exercise is important. However, if your hectic schedule leaves you with no time to hit the gym, you can try integrating some activity in the course of the day for increasing your productivity and staying fit.

1Take a walk when you are conversing on the phone.
Instead of the lift, take the stairs.
Take short breaks and step away from workstation.
Workouts at home, such as sit-ups, push-ups, crunches, lunges and squats, keep you in shape 2.Eat Healthy and On TimeFoods which are low in nutritional value and have too many calories can pose serious health problems, including weight gain, cardiovascular problems and diabetes. It is important to stick to a healthy diet and a strict routine.

Instead of starchy foods, choose wholegrain variants which contain more fibre, and keep you feeling full.
Feel like snacking in the middle of the day? Stock up on nuts and seeds or citrus fruits that are known to cure fatigue and stimulate alertness.
To keep your energy up and your metabolism on overdrive, eat breakfast and smaller meals throughout the day, rather than 3 big meals.
Have sufficient liquids through the day to avoid dehydration.
Avoid processed or packaged foods that contain too much sugar. Excess sugar has been linked to energy spikes followed by a crash, while too much salt can lead to high blood pressure and an increased risk of strokes and heart disease.3Sleep is ImportantFinding it difficult to get a good night’s sleep? Sleep deprivation can lead to fatigue, confusion, memory lapses and irritability.

3To get a restful sleep:

Create a sleep schedule and stick to it. Reading a book, listening to relaxing music, or taking a warm shower can help in relaxing your body.
Avoid watching TV or surfing on your mobile as this can interfere with your sleep.
Pay attention to what you eat and drink. Going to bed hungry or stuffing yourself too much can cause discomfort and keep you awake.When you are trying to juggle multiple things at a time, you are bound to be stressed. Five to ten minutes of deep breathing can help in relaxing you and reducing anxiety.



4Watch Your Posture

Good-Sitting-Posture

Good posture is not just great for your back and neck, but also allows you to breathe properly and increases concentration and thinking ability. To improve your posture:

Get a good quality office chair, one with firm and dense cushioning and back support.
Instead of resting your weight on a particular foot, plant both feet flat on the floor.
Set a reminder to check your posture. This can be in the form of a post-it note, an alarm on your phone or an email reminder. Focus on Deep Breathing

5 just breathe

When you are trying to juggle multiple things at a time, you are bound to be stressed. Five to ten minutes of deep breathing can help in relaxing you and reducing anxiety.

You can also close your eyes and focus on relaxing and tensing each muscle group while taking deep, slow breaths. The best part about this is that you can do it any time, at home, workplace or even on the road.

I have pcod. My egg size is 5mm on 13 th day and 16 th day. Its not vary. So I stop the usage of dufeston tablets. Egg not growing then I get periods normally? Any lagging to come periods? In this stage any chance to I get pregnant. Pls tell me.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
As egg is not growing this month menses will be delayed and you will not get pregnancy this month. Dose of clomiphene citrate needs to increase from the next month for egg growth. Duphastan is not needed in this cycle and in any cycle in future as our body secretes the same if pregnancy occurs.

Cysts come on their own, but don' t go on their own. Like dust comes of its own but doesn' t go of its own - I have to clean it. Take homeopathic medicines to dissolve the cyst for at your age it can do nasty things. Consult for medication.
