I have delivered a baby in feb now my baby is 3 months but I have less breast milk so wht to do?

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Lucknow
How do you know your milk is less? there is only one way to find if the milk is sufficient or not. If the baby passes urine more than six times in 24 hours then consider your milk as sufficient. Normally mother's milk is sufficient upto six months of age.

Treating Infertility with Homeopathy

B.H.M.S
Sexologist, Hyderabad
Treating Infertility with Homeopathy

Infertility is a condition, which is diagnosed as the inability of the woman to conceive a child even after a prolonged duration of unprotected intercourse (for about 6 months to 1 year). This condition can affect both the genders. Infertility might cause immense societal embarrassment for the couple and can mar the joys of a relationship. The causes of infertility in male and female are as follows:

  1. In males, infertility might stem from injury to the testicles, erectile problems, premature ejaculation, infections due to sexually transmitted diseases, structural deformation of the testicles, little or irregular sperm count and blockage of the ejaculatory duct.
  2. In females, infertility might develop due to abnormal periods, polycystic ovarian syndrome, diseases which cause inflammation of the pelvis such as gonorrhoea and chlamydia, a disorder in the thyroid glands, blockage of the fallopian tubes and structural deformation of the uterus.
  3. The common reasons of infertility in both men and women can be attributed to increased body weight, old age, excessive consumption of alcohol, diabetes, mental anxiety, side effect of radiation therapy and prescribed medications.

As it is a holistic mode of treatment, Homeopathy can be used to treat infertility as the preparations do not contain any toxin and has zero side effects.
1. In men, if the reason behind infertility is irregular sperm count, then a prescribed dosage of X-Ray might help.
2. If infertility is caused due to erectile problems along with symptoms of severe mental stress, involuntary discharge of semen and lack of sexual desire, a prescribed dosage of Caladium or Selenium might be helpful.
3. If the discharge from the vagina appears to be acidic which gradually destroys the sperms, Borax might be prescribed.
4. If the woman suffers from episodes of irregular, but enduring menstrual periods, a prescribed dosage of Calcarea Carb might be helpful. If the duration of the periods is short, Pulsatilla might also be prescribed.
5. In women, if the symptoms include a lack of sexual desire along with excessive pain in the vagina during sexual intercourse, Sepia might be recommended.

Coriander (Dhaniya)

Ayurveda, Zirakpur
Coriander (Dhaniya)

Health benefits of Coriander

Skin disorders:

The disinfectant, detoxifying, antiseptic, antifungal and antioxidant properties of coriander are ideal for clearing up skin disorders such as eczema, dryness and fungal infections.

Low cholesterol levels:

 Some of the acids present in coriander, like linoleic acid, oleic acid, palmitic acid, stearic acid and ascorbic acid (vitamin c) are very effective in reducing the cholesterol levels in the blood. They also reduce the level of bad cholesterol (ldl) deposition along the inner walls of the arteries and veins, which can lead to serious cardiovascular issues like artherosclerosis, heart attacks, and strokes. More importantly, coriander helps to raise the levels of healthy cholesterol (hdl), which works as a preventative line of defense against a number of dangerous conditions.

Mouth ulcers:

Citronelol, a component of essential oils in coriander, is an excellent antiseptic. Additionally, other components have antimicrobial and healing effects which keep wounds and ulcers in the mouth from worsening. They help speed up the healing process of ulcers and also freshen breath. Although not in common use in mainstream products, coriander is often used as an antiseptic component of all-natural toothpastes. In fact, before the invention of toothpaste, people would chew on coriander seeds to reduce bad breath.

Hi lybrate-user. Private parts have a very sensitive skin and hair remover creams can cause some reactions or allergy at that area. Pain can also be due to some abrasion caused while removing hair. (look for any redness over the area)

Are Today vaginal contraceptive pills effective to avoid pregnancy If my wife use it before intercourse?

Obstetrician, Pune
Are Today vaginal contraceptive pills effective to avoid pregnancy If my wife use it before intercourse?
Hello lybrate-user, I hope health wise you are doing good. Let me explain your doubt. Active ingredient of Today contraceptive is Nonoxynol 9. This is strictly for vaginal use only. This is 24 hour vaginal contraceptive measure to prevent the pregnancy but in clinical trials it has been noted that women got pregnant even after using this method in correct manner. I advice you, your wife can use Today vaginal contraceptive sponge but at the same time you should also use barrier method (condom). Your wife should not use Today vaginal contraceptive if 1) she had history of toxic shock syndrome 2) she is menstruating 3) she is allergic to nonoxynol 9. Your wife should stop using Today vaginal contraceptive if 1) you or your wife get rash, burning sensation or itching of genital parts. 2) your wife gets abdominal pain, foul smell vaginal discharge or fever with chills. 3) if she becomes pregnant. Your wife should not keep this Today vaginal contraceptive sponge more than thirty hours in vagina. She should not remove the sponge before 6 hours of last intercourse. No contraceptive measure gives 100% prevention from pregnancy. Each and every contraceptive method have their own failure rate. So be careful.

Botox Injections - What You Can Expect?

MD-Hom., BHMS, Dip. in Cosmetology & Trichology
Cosmetic Physician, Mumbai
Botox Injections - What You Can Expect?

Are you planning on undertaking a botox treatment? Botox is a drug which is made from a neurotoxin. This is produced by the bacteria called Clostridium botulinum. Botox is used for medical purposes, commonly for treating muscular conditions. It is also used for cosmetic procedures, which help in removing wrinkles. This process is carried out by paralyzing the facial muscles temporarily. Botulinum toxin is also sold commercially under certain names.

Medical and Cosmetic Uses-

Botox is most commonly used as a treatment procedure for reducing the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles in middle-aged adults. It is also used for medical purposes, for the treatment of conditions such as eye squints, excessive sweating, leaky bladders and migraines. Botox is used for treating more than 20 medical conditions.

How Does Botox Work?

Botox or botulinum toxin is a very poisonous substance, and a single gram of it is capable of killing more than one million people. It is considered to be an effective therapeutic protein when used in ideal dosage, and frequency. It is used in several medical procedures and treatment therapies.

How is Botox Procedure Undertaken?

Botulinum toxin is administered by diluting the power in saline. It is injected directly into your neuro-muscular tissue. A duration of 24 to 72 hours is required for it to take effect. This time reflects the time required for disruption of the normal synaptosomal process of the body. It may take over five days for experiencing the full effects of botox. Botox must not be used in women who are pregnant or lactating, or by people having a previous allergic reaction to it.

Risk and Side-Effects:

Injections which contain botox are usually well tolerated. They have several side effects as well.

  1. In some cases, a person may have a genetic predisposition which causes a mild, transient and unusual response to Botox. Some people who are receiving botox type A injections may develop antibodies to the toxins, which may make the treatment ineffective. In people who are using botox type B for cervical dystonia, antibody development may occur.

  2. Along with the effects intended, botulinum toxin may lead to several other undesirable effects. They may include conditions such as transient numbness, headaches, malaise, mild cases of nausea, mild pain, local edema and erythema on the site of injection.

  3. Temporary tiredness, fatigue or the paralysis of nearby musculature may also be experienced because of the reaction of the toxin.

  4. Drooping or temporary upper lid and brow ptosis are also indicated.

Among the two types of botox treatments, the results from abobotulinum toxin A is considered to be more effective than onabotulinum toxin A treatment. Better results are experienced when the muscles are contracted instead of being at rest. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Cosmetic Physician.

This is a common problem in pregnancy. But this time, you should not take any drug without consulting your doctor. You need cold water and some drugs to stop acidity- also needs some diagnostic tests.
