If mammography is negative just keep a watch on lump if any. Some water retention is seen as tenderness in some women. Get bp checked and blood for sugar and lipids. Reduce salt and drink lots of water. Take potassium rich food like oranges and lemon juice and amla etc. Drink lots of water to flush out toxic elements from blood by producing more urine.

10 best foods for muscle growth :

Almonds:

These nuts are exceptionally a dense powerhouse of essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that will aid the body in muscle growth and staying slim. Eating these nuts can lead to more energy and stronger muscles. 1/3 cup of almonds delivers 271 calories, 10 g of protein, 10 g of carbs and 23g of fat.

Turkey:

Turkey breast is absolutely great for bulking up your overall muscle growth. It is high on protein, low fat and slightly higher in cholesterol than most lean meats and fish. One serving of Turkey breast delivers 34 calories, 14% fat, 16% carbs and 70% proteins.

Red meat:

Adding lean cuts of red meat to your diet is an excellent way to help muscle growth. Red meat is also a rich source of dietary iron that helps maximize athletic performance.

Eggs:

Eggs are convenient food that is fast and easy to cook. To stay really fit and healthy, it is best eating the egg whites and occasionally the yolk. The protein in eggs has the highest value. Calorie for calorie is what you actually need for muscle growth. Eggs are rich sources of vitamins and minerals. They are packed with riboflavin, vitamins B6, B12, D and E, iron, phosphorus and zinc.

Spinach:

Spinach is a well known green vegetable that is rich various vitamins and nutrients such as calcium and iron. New research says that nitrates from vegetables like spinach make muscles stronger.

Yogurt:

Yogurt is the perfect combination of protein and carbohydrates that is extremely good for exercise recovery and muscle growth. Studies have shown that yogurt in one of the few foods that has conjugated linoleic acid, a special type of fat that aid to reduce body fat.

Quinoa:

Quinoa is a typical high protein grain which is not a rice or couscous. It can be sweet and savory; has a nutty texture and rich flavor. It is one of the best additions to your daily diet especially for boys who are trying to build lean muscle using natural ingredients. This protein is made up of all 9 essential amino acids which means it’s a complete protein that will help build and repair your muscles. It contains only 3 grams of fat for ¼ cup serving and is cholesterol and gluten free.

Oatmeal:

Oatmeal is an excellent carbohydrate diet that packs in an abundance of fiber and carbs which is ideal for the diet of bodybuilders. While protein is definitely the most important, carbohydrates and fats too play a vital role in muscle building process.

Salmon:

When it comes to muscle growth, fish really tops the list especially Salmon is a protein powerhouse yielding around 25 grams of protein per 100 gram serving. It is also amazing loaded with omega 3 fatty acids and heart healthy monounsaturated fats. Salmon is an excellent source of vitamin D.

Chickpeas:

Chickpeas or Garbanzo beans are another great food for muscle growth. They are excellent choice to be included in your diet as they contain carbohydrates and loaded with fiber. You can eat them boiled or cook to make a yummy hummus.

You could also include other foods like berries, flax seeds, broccoli, tomatoes, carrots, oranges, apples etc in your diet that aid in muscle building.

It may mean pcod, a condition where multiple small small cystic structures are seen in ovaries by ultrasound; this is associated with missed period. Also sometimes, hypothyroidism may lead to missed period. Your weight is good for your height and age, as it indicates bmi of 21.

It is likely to be periods only as she is suffering from pcod. Even if she is pregnant, it can not be diagnosed so early. She has to miss her next period to get pregnant. These symptoms are not the sign of pregnancy. If she took i-pill then also her menses can come early.

Hi lybrate-user. Its unlikely that the blood spot is because of pregnancy. Though there is a chance that she might get pregnant, but unfortunately it cannot be detected this soon. I suggest you wait for her next periods, and if they delayed by a week, do a pregnancy test and check.

Change your posture and keep your self warm. Take absolutely bland diet because one of the reasons can be acidity also but still it is advisable that you consult a gynaecologist immediately.

Hello there is a high possibility of conceiving in and around the probable time of ovulation. Ovulation occurs in midcycle. So for example. Sumbudy who has a 30 days cycle. Has high chances of conceiving from day 12 to day 18 or 20 so first 10 days and last 10 days are safe. I hope I have been clear enough and solved your query.

This could be beginning of menopause. Sometimes periods become heavy and irregular before they cease. But at this age, it is advisable to get a USG done to rule out any pathology. Please ask her to talk to me if she has more queries.

Me (23) and my partner (22) planning to have sex for the first time. I have few doubts and now putting in front of you. 1. Shall I use condom or ask her to take pills to avoid getting pregnant. If pills is still good, which pills is good and any disadvantages? 2. Is there any energy drink to stay long time in bed? Red bull is fine? 3. What are the other things we need to take care. Please give me solution doctors. Thank You all.

You can prevent pregnancy by using condom so don't think about pills, pills may cause side effects. Its your first time so don't get depressed and be confident. Go ahead and enjoy.

Folic acid is advised by many (even I also prescribe) to patients who are planning to have baby because it prevents neurological problems in baby

I am 22 years female. Over last few months I have been gaining weight and I got stomach. At first it was slight and unnoticeable but now my stomach became very much bulged out and my weight also increased drastically which is appreciable. My hands also became fat. I am developing blackness around my neck and facial hair. I am even getting back pain. Back pain is occurring once in a while but causing a lot of discomfort. To overcome my problems I started regular exercise and diet control to an extent possible but there has been no result, instead my symptoms are worsening. I can't any more changes to my diet or any vigorous exercises as I am a student and my lifestyle is sedentary, and I stay in hostel. I visit home once in 15 days. Then fed up of my appearance I went to doctor. Doctor has done ultrasound of abdomen and confirmed bilateral polycystic ovaries. After it is confirmed my doctor has asked me to keep those reports safely as it will be useful in future for the purpose of treatment, and as of now according to my doctor I don't require treatment as pcos generally exist in many girls in my age and it's not a major concern unless they get married, it's generally after marriage that complications arise. So my doctor did not give me any medications. I was little bit dissatisfied as I my major concern which dragged md to doctor was my increasing weight and stomach and according to meif the underlying cause pcos is treated then my other problems will be solved so I am planning to consult another doctor soon. I Want to know from Lybrate doctors whether my doctor is right or wrong and whether I should consult and other doctor and get treatment done.in case of treatment generally what medication do they prescribe and will be effective? My periods are regular.
