'A HEALTHY YOU FOREVER'

Tips to stay healthy forever.

1. Eat local fruits. Like banana, grapes, chikoo, mangoes. All fruits have fructose so it doesn't matter that your eating a mango over an apple. A mango comes from Konkan and an apple from Kashmir. So mango is more local to u.

Eat all d abv fruits even if you have diabetes as d fructose will eventually manage your sugar

2. Choose seed oils than veggie oils. Like, choose groundnut, mustard, coconut. Don't choose chakachak packing oils, like olive, rice bran etc
Go for kachchi ghani oils than refined oils

3. Ghee n it's benefits.
Eat ghee daily. How much ghee we shud eat depends on food. Few foods need more ghee then eat more n vice versa. Eat ample ghee. It reduces cholesterol.

3. Include coconut. Either scraped coconut over food like poha, khandvi or chutney with idli n dosa
Coconut has zero cholesterol and it makes your waist slim

3. Don't eat oats, cereals for breakfast. They r packaged food n we don't need them. Also, they r tasteless n boring n our day shouldn't start with boring stuff.
Breakfast should be poha, upma, idli, dosa, paratha

4. Farhaan akhtars new ad of biscuits - fibre in every bite. Even ghar ka kachara has fiber, likewise, oats have fiber. Don't chose them for fiber. Instead of oats, eat poha, upma, idli, dosa

5. No juices till you hv teeth in your mouth to chew veggies n fruits

6. Sugarcane is d real detox. Drink d juice fresh or eat d sugarcane

7. For PCOS, thyroid - do strength training and weight training and avoid all packaged food

8. Rice - eat regular white rice. No need for brown rice. Brown rice needs 5-6 whistles to cook n when it tires your pressure cooker, then why do you want to tire your tummy.
A white rice is hand pounded simple rice

Rice is not high is gi index. Rice has mediun gi index n by eating it with daal / dahi / kadhi we bring its gi index further down
If we take ghee over this daal chawal then d gi index is brought further down
Rice has some rich minerals n you can eat it even three times a day

9. How much should we eat - eat more if your more hungry, let your stomach be your guide n vice versa

10. We can eat rice n chapati together or only rice if you wish. It depends on your hunger. Eat rice in all three meals without any fear.

11. Food shouldnt make you scared like eating rice n ghee. Food should make you feel good

12. Never look at calories. Look at nutrients

13. No bread, biscuits, cakes, pizza, pasta

14. Ask urself is this the food my nani n dadi ate? if yes then eat without fear.

15. Eat as per your season. Eat pakoda, fafda, jalebi in monsoon. Your hunger is as per season. Few seasons we need to be fried food so eat them.

16. When not to have chai - tea - don't drink tea as the first thing in the morning or when you're hungry. Rest you can have it 2-3 times a day n with sugar

17. No green tea please no green, yellow, purple, blue tea.

18. Eat all of your traditional foods

19. Strictly no to packaged foods/drinks.

20. Exercise/walk more to digest and stay healthy.

She must have prescribed you this tab so that the foetus is sustained as you might be having either repeated abortions or there could be some vulnerability to loose the pregnancy so it's advisable to continue with the treatment.

Sir, I am having pcod irregular periods and Dr. Prescribed meprate tablet 10 mg for five days. Not getting periods after 9 days.

Best homeopathic remedy for cure of pcos sepia occupies the top position among the homeopathic medicines for treatment for polycystic ovarian syndrome. The menstrual symptom for homeopathic remedy sepia is late and scanty menses. In most of the cases, this is accompanied by bearing down sensations in the pelvic region. The ovaries remain enlarged with fluid-filled cysts in them. Homeopathic medicine sepia acts very efficiently to regulate the menstrual cycle to appear at the proper expected time. Sepia can also be considered to treat infertility cases due to pcos. Abnormal hair growth on the face, especially on upper lips, can also be well controlled with homeopathic medicine sepia. Other general symptoms to look for before taking sepia are sensitivity to cold air, mental irritability, and indifferent behaviour towards loved ones.

Safe period is from day 1 to 7 and day 21 to the rest of the cycle, when you can have sex without worrying about getting pregnant (The average menstrual cycle is 28 days or a little less, but if your cycle is longer than 28 days, the safe period is not reliable). You had contact in the safe periods so you need not to worry about pregnancy or implantation bleeding, it is your normal mens.

If a girl do first time sex in her life, then is it necessary that she will bleed for the first time. Does bleeding happens with the every girl,

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist,
No. The bleeding at first sex happens if the hymen is rigid and gets torn. Many a girls have an elastic hymen and some have a central hole thats good enough to allow entry to penis at sex hence it may not break" get torn" at first sex. The basic issue is trust. If you trust your partner is a virgin then believe her word for it. Many a ladies also bleed after getting used to for vaginal sex, due to rough sex or when tears occur in the vagina due to forceful sex. Or when their hormones are low and vaginal lining is dry and liable to getting cracked up so blood first sex is not the criteria to judge a person's virginity.

Hi, you need to see a infertility consultant at your place. Get yourself and husband examined and get done with all tests. So that some conclusion will come out and plan of action will be chalked out. Don't worry you are just 21. All the best!

Hi doctor. I have one doubt. HSG is rare cause for Endometriosis? Is any relationship between HSG and Endometriosis. Can you explain me about Endometriosis.

Hi doctor. I have one doubt. HSG is rare cause for Endometriosis? Is any relationship between HSG and Endometriosis. ...
No hsg has no connection with endometriosis, unless some doctor does the tube test during periods and throws cells out of uterus within abdominal cavity! endometriosis is presence of lining of uterus at other places, besides the inside of uterus, places like outer lining of uterus, tubes, on ovaries or anywhere in abdominal cavity, when there is stimulation for period to start, wherever the tissue of lining is present, area starts bleeding/ shedding. Infertility rate is high / impossible unless treated.

Mommy Makeover

MBBS, MS - General Surgery, M.Ch - Plastic Surgery, Fellowship in Aesthetic Surgery, MRCS
Cosmetic/Plastic Surgeon, Gurgaon
Mommy Makeover

Bringing a child into this world is one of the most wonderful phases of a woman's life. At the same time, this involves a lot of body changes - physiologically, physically, chemically, and emotionally.
Mommy makeover refers to one or a combination of procedures that are done to alter the appearance after delivery, especially relating to one or more of the following:

  1. Tummy that is sagging (no fat, just loose skin) with stretch marks
  2. Breasts that are altered in size and shape, sometimes the enlargement could be completely disproportionate with the body and cause back pain
  3. Undefined thick waistline with irregular fat accumulation
  4. Fat deposits on the abdomen, thighs, hips, and trunk that do not reduce with dietary changes and exercise
  5. Skin changes on the face and around the eyes, giving an aged appearance
  6. Post cesarean, there is excessive skin around the surgical scar

Pros:

  1. Reduces tummy size
  2. Gives a more youthful appearance
  3. Alters breasts to the desired shape and size

Cons:

  1. Weight loss, if happens, could affect the results
  2. Subsequent pregnancies don't have any complications with tummy tuck but with another pregnancy the effects may be lessened or reversed.
  3. Since surgery is involved, the risk of unforeseen complications always exists (for instance, in breast implants, there is capsule formation or capsulitis, in rare cases rupture may require removal.)

Mommy makeover is not a single step procedure, but a combination of plastic surgical procedures that are done depending on the problem you present with.

  • Tummy tuck - If there is abdominal sagging, the tummy is tucked back into position by removing the fat and excessive skin and reworking on the belly button.
  • Liposuction - Excessive fat deposits in the hips, thighs, trunk area can be removed by sucking out the fat deposits. Most commonly done in the hips and trunk area.
  • Breast lift - Sagging uneven breasts, drooping nipples, reduced volume are all indications for a breast lift. During the surgery, the breast tissue is repositioned to reproduce a better shape and size and reposition the nipples if required.
  • Breast reduction - Large breasts are a common problem, and breast reduction is one of the most requested for procedures.
  • Breast augmentation - Either saline implants or silicone are used to restore breast size and shape to the desired results. Usually, breast lift is combined with breast augmentation.
  • Facial corrections - From dark circles to sagging skin to wrinkles, facial appearance can be changed based on the presenting symptoms.

These are very brief descriptions of the various procedures that are done as part of mummy makeover. A detailed consultation with your plastic surgeon regarding costs, subsequent pregnancies, aftercare, recovery, healing, and limitations and risks is to be had ahead of the surgery.

The only way to be sure about pregnancy is by doing a pregnancy test after the periods are overdue by 5 days. Another reason for delay could be mental tension and anxiety related to this issue. If you like, please contact me to understand the basic physiology of menstruation and avoid a lot of mental tension.

There is no way to get boy only. Second is with late age there are somepossibilities of complications like high blood pressure, diabetes during pregnancy and higher chance of mongol child (mentaly chhalanged). No treatment of mongolism but some tests during pregnancy available to diagnose so that couple can decide about termination of pregnancy if diagnosed to have mongol child. Test has very low risk of abortion.
