Apart from benefitting the baby, breastfeeding benefits the mother as well. The prolactic hormone is released in the mother's system during the process and she feels a nurturing and peaceful sensation.

Should prohibit and keep away if possible. Aristozyme is for digestion as you know to- be mothers suffer from indigestion and constipation. Pineapple is generally not recommended during the first 3 months Or may be 6 months for organ formation of the foetus. Its is not harmful though it is recommended at end stages of pregnancy to prepare the mother for normal delivery.

IVF - 3 Reasons to Opt for it

IVF - 3 Reasons to Opt for it

In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a medical procedure that side-steps the sexual act of conceiving and helps infertile couples, conceive a biological child. It involves the manual process of fertilization by combining an egg and sperm in the laboratory and then implanting the embryo into the female to impregnate her.

The inability to give birth through the natural way is caused due to complications like: blocked fallopian tubes, unexplained infertility, Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), endometriosis: where parts of the womb lining grow out of the womb, premature ovarian failure and so on.

If you or your partner is having trouble conceiving, you should opt for in vitro fertilization. It holds benefits like-

1. High success rates: Women who underwent in vitro fertilisation using fresh embryos of their own fresh eggs, the projected live birth percentage was 32.2% for those under 35 years, 27.7% for women aged between 35 and 37 years, lowering to 5.0% in 43 to 44 year olds and 1.9% for ages above 45. It has been proved that a female’s ability to conceive decreases with age. If infertility is detected at a younger age, the process of IVF is highly advantageous and successfully results in childbirth.

2. Proven track record: Technology has come a long way since the first baby via IVF Louise Brown was born in 1978 using a natural IVF. Medical techniques have advanced to create safer and successful treatment. The usage of the safest forms of IVF with low drug regimens today, have prevented side effects such as ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS).

3. Harvests multiple eggs: If you are planning to have more than one child, via IVF you can freeze multiple eggs for future use. Unused or spare embryos can be donated to medical organisations for research purposes or to another couple willing to have a child.
IVF has proven successful in giving couples a wholesome and happy life. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an IVF Specialist.

At 48, you can afford to do healthy dieting, may be not later. I am not in favor of taking any medicines for weight reduction. Only simple dieting with moderate exercise. You are passing through perimenopausal period too, means a few years before or after periods stop, here is decline in hormones & some amount of weight gain is physiological too@ 1/2 kg per year. One can counter this too through sensible eating. Reduce salt to minimum as it causes water retention. Take lots of potassium like citrus fruits, oranges, lemon water, apple cider vinegar but no sugar or other carbs like grains, maida or bread/rice during the day. Eat lots of seasonal vegetables & fruits & drink lots of water. A katori of nuts gives good fats, proteins & are filling too, they counter hunger pangs & so does 1 boiled egg. Simple walk is best exercise provided there is no pollution. You can use indoor stable cycle too & cycle while watching tv within your home. One meal in evening of daal roti chawal & lots of salads. No bad fats of burgers & other street food. You will lose weight @ 5 kg per month, initially it will be quicker, then remain stable but carry on with diet & exercise, after some time there will be sharp decline. Do not aim for size 0, just lose about 10 kgs & maintain it. Good luck. Get basic tests done like ultrasound of abdomen, blood sugar, lipid profile & get bp checked.

Hello, Some home remedies you can try to treat irregular period problem: REDUCE STRESS: Breathe away stress by doing yoga and breathing exercises and meditation in the morning. Also, do kapalbhati and anulom-vilom pranayama for 15 mins each. CHASTE BERRY: The best known hormone balancing herb for women, Chaste berry helps to regulate the female gynecological system. It works by normalizing the secretions of the pituitary gland, hypothalamus, and ovaries, which then appropriately signal to balance the endocrine system. Note – This herb is not recommended if you are taking any fertility drug. It should not be consumed during pregnancy. SHATAVARI: Shatavari is also known to restore the balance of hormones in women. Mix it with equal amount of Ashwagandha and take 1 teaspoon with warm milk at night daily. OTHER HERBS: Some other herbs you can try to regain healthy menstruation: Holy basil (Tulsi), Black cohosh, licorice (Mulethi) root, turmeric, and Evening primerose oil. (If you are on medications, always consult your doctor first). DIETARY CHANGES: Drink carrot juice, aloe vera juice, grape juice. Add ginger, cinnamon, pumpkin seeds, green (unripe) papaya, sesame seeds (with Jaggery), Apple Cider Vinegar and wheat grass to your diet. Also eat other seasonal fruits and vegetables and drink plenty of water throughout the day. Most women return to healthy menstruation cycle following these remedies. However, if you don’t benefit from the above, you should see your gynaecologist immediately.

My wife got miscarriage at 14 weeks, how long should we wait for the next planning.
She can wait for 4-6 months but before next planning she should exercise in routine esp.Pelvic floor exercises and abdominal exercises which will make her uterus and body ready for next pregnancy.Make sure she doesnot gain weight during this period.

It is very common in newly married girls. If the pain persists, ask her to visit a gynaecologist as she might have developed a fungal infection. Ask her to keep the area clean and drink plenty of water.
