MONITOR PORTIONS
It is incredibly easy to consume too much food than your body actually requires. One reason for this simple mistake is the brain’s inability to keep up with how your stomach is feeling, i.e.: full or still hungry. Measuring your servings will not only ensure you are eating appropriate amounts, but will also help you trim down your servings if needed. And, if portion control is difficult for you, buy food products in single servings whenever possible or divide up your larger portions into smaller ones as soon as you get home from the store (and when you are not hungry).

5 Shocking Things Contraceptive Pills Can Do To You

5 Shocking Things Contraceptive Pills Can Do To You

5 Shocking things contraceptive pills can do to you

Around 150 million women worldwide take birth control pills on a regular basis. However, most of them are unaware of the side-effects these pills can have on their health. Read on to find out how your birth control pill is harming you!

1. It may cause inconsistency in your menstrual cycle

You might miss your periods under the prescription of these pills. They can also decrease the flow during your periods and can cause alterations in your menstrual cycle, resulting in either more or less frequent periods.

2. It may also trigger false premenstrual syndrome symptoms

When you first start taking birth control pills you may suffer PMS symptoms like headaches, breast tenderness, water retention, mood swings, intolerable pain and even nausea. Usually these are false alarms, and have nothing to do with PMS whatsoever.

3. It may decrease your libido

The hormones present in a contraceptive pill can affect your sex drive or libido. A 2010 study, published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, tested 1,086 women who took contraceptives regularly and found out that 32.4% of them were at high risk of developing female sexual dysfunction.

4. It may lead to multiple aches and pains

Birth control pills may result in various aches like abdominal or stomach pains, chest pains, and headaches. It can even cause eye problems such as blurred vision or changes in power and swelling in your legs.

5. It may increase the risk of breast cancer

Although the pill has been proven to decrease the risk of ovarian, colon and endometrial cancer; it can increase your chances of suffering from breast cancer. A Scandinavian study showed that the longer women were on the pill, the higher their chances became of being diagnosed with this deadly disease. However, the relation between the two is yet to be established.

To avert such possible health risks of oral contraception you can consider birth control alternatives like male or female condoms, vaginal diaphragm, cervical cap and spermicidal cream or jelly. These alternatives are highly effective as well as safe in controlling and preventing unplanned pregnancies.

For conceiving you must know your fertile period or ovulation calender.(before this rule out if any pathology present) You're most likely to get pregnant if you have sex within a day or so of ovulation (releasing an egg from the ovary). This is usually about 14 days after the first day of your last period, if your cycle is around 28 days long. An egg lives for about 12-24 hours after being released. But sperm can survive for up to a week inside you, so there is a six-day window for sperm to wait for and then meet an egg. However, its tricky to pinpoint the exact day or two just before ovulation.

I want to know about ,how effective a condom is? Is this completely safe for unwanted pregnancy?

Dear user. I can understand. Condom is safe, effective and economical method to prevent unwanted pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases and HIV. In majority of the cases condom, if used, prevents unwanted pregnancy. Sometimes, condom breaks. This happens due to rough sex. Therefore avoid rough sex with condom. Take care.

My age is 28 years .I have been on contraceptive pill named dronis 30, (dropirenone and ethinyloestradiol)for 1 year after that my blood sugar level incrased a lot (140 on empty stomac). Now I want to get pregnant soon. Is it possible i will have increased thyroid also after taking the pill

The pills are not responsible for sugar and thyroid problems. Most likely, these are coincidental. First control your thyroid and sugar before planning pregnancy, otherwise there may be difficulty during pregnancy. But controlled sugar and controlled thyroid are relatively safe for pregnancy. Al the best.

Sunlight can reduce weight

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Sunlight can reduce weight
A new Northwestern Medicine study has reported that the timing, intensity and duration of your light exposure during the day are linked to your weight.

People who had most of their daily exposure to even moderately bright light in the morning had a significantly lower body mass index than those who had most of their light exposure later in the day.

"The earlier this light exposure occurred during the day, the lower individuals’ body mass index," said co–lead author Kathryn Reid, research associate professor of neurology at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. "The later the hour of moderately bright light exposure, the higher a person’s BMI."

The influence of morning light exposure on body weight was independent of an individual’s physical activity level, caloric intake, sleep timing, age or season. It accounted for about 20 percent of a person’s BMI.

"Light is the most potent agent to synchronize your internal body clock that regulates circadian rhythms, which in turn also regulate energy balance," said study senior author Phyllis C. Zee, M.D. "The message is that you should get more bright light between 8 a.m. and noon." About 20 to 30 minutes of morning light is enough to affect BMI.

Hii, how to stop vomiting in 3 month of pregnancy? I am doing vomiting 4-5 time a day.

Hii, how to stop vomiting in 3 month of pregnancy? I am doing vomiting 4-5 time a day.
If your lft (blood test) is normal and sonography shows normal pregnancy, you need not be scared. Take tablets for vomiting or nausea prescribed by the doctor. Break up the meals into 6, so you don't have to consume too much in one meal. Don't drink water immediately after food. Don't lie down just after meals. Some exercise like walking will help. Ensure you are consuming adequate calories and electrolytes.
