First of all you need to confirm whether your wife is pregnant or not. Do a simple urine pregnancy test. If its positive, then there is more than 95% chance that she may be pregnant. In that case visit a gynecologist to decide the right medicine to terminate the unwanted pregnancy. If the pregnancy test is negative, you need not worry. Just wait another week or so for periods to begin.

Curd Vs. Milk - How should you get your daily dose of calcium?

Curd Vs. Milk - How should you get your daily dose of calcium?

Curd vs. Milk- how should you get your daily dose of calcium?

Calcium is an essential mineral that is required by the body for various functions. It is used for building and maintaining strong bones and teeth. It is also used in the cardiovascular and nervous systems for preventing all kinds of health conditions such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, lyme disease, etc.

It is, thus, extremely necessary to have calcium-rich foods as a part of your daily diet. Dairy products constitute as the primary source of calcium on an everyday basis. Of these, milk and curd are the two most important. But in case, you're wondering which one of the two is better for you, read on to find out.

Calcium content

There has been much debate about which is the better source of calcium - milk or curd. In very simple terms, milk ranks higher than curd in terms of calcium content. 100g of milk contains around 125mg of calcium, whereas 100g of curd has a lower calcium content of approximately 85mg. So if you really want to up your calcium intake, milk will be a better choice.

Other health benefits

If one is to take into consideration other health benefits provided by these two food products, curd takes the lead by a landslide.

Following are the known benefits of curd:

- It is far easier to digest

- It is a suitable dairy product for those who are lactose intolerant

- It cleanses the digestive tract

- It prevents infections of the stomach and intestines

In the end, it's for you to decide what your body needs more. If it requires more calcium, choosing milk would be wise; but if you cannot digest milk, opting for curd will ensure you get a healthy dose of calcium along with scores of other health benefits.

Kegel Exercises These are also known as pelvic floor exercises. They target the pelvic floor muscles to prevent weakening. These exercises are effective at treating loosening around the genitals but only when done on a regular basis. The advantage is that the exercises can easily be done in the convenience of one’s home, allowing one to enjoy the privacy. Aloe Vera This simple herb is useful for many reasons. Not only does it strengthen the muscles around the vagina, but it also eliminates the irritation experienced due to dryness. Furthermore, Aloe Vera also provides fast relief from any other genital related issues that one may be experiencing. Secret Ceres This is an organic herbal stick that is highly potent and serves to cleanse and tighten the private parts internally. Three studies by Natural Body Care confirm the stick’s gynecological benefits when used regularly. Among its many advantages is its ability to increase libido and sensation, rejuvenate a dry vagina, eliminate vaginal odor and re-balance the pH levels of the vagina. Gooseberries These berries help restore the vagina’s elasticity and suppleness within a short period. All you have to do is boil some in water and store the solution. Proceed to apply the solution to your private parts when taking a bath. Witch Hazel This herb also helps tighten the vaginal muscles. You just need to grind the herb into powder form and use it to wash the genitals once a week consistently. Other forms of exercises You may also consider exploring other forms of exercises that target the pelvic muscles. Such include yoga and pilates that tighten the pelvic muscles by strengthening one’s core. Healthy Diet The muscles in the body, overall, require food for proper growth and repair. A healthy diet complete with organic animal protein, fruits and vegetables, and whole grain carbohydrates will go a long way to helping you tighten your muscles. It is not difficult to keep your lady parts in shape. These simple remedies will work wonders for you if you remain consistent.

IVF is costly and if you spend money then should go for stimulated cycle IVF, however if you want natural cycle then you have to see whether you are ovulating regularly.
