I took ipill a month ago and tge periods in previous month was delayed for 2 weeks and this month my cycle is regular as usual. I did took 4 urine home pregnancy tests each with a weeks gap. Please advice can there be still any chances of pregnancy?

No, if 4 urine tests have shown negativity, and if they have been done properly, if you have had a menses this month then the chances of pregnancy are not there. Stop doing these urine tests. You took an ipill to prevent a pregnancy, it doesnot cause an abortion. The fact that you had a menses, even if delayed, after taking ipill it means that you have not become pregnant in last month. If your ipill were to fail and you were to become pregnant in last month, your menses would not have come.

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.

Normal delivery or caesarean depends on a number of factors which are determined ones a female goes in labour. All these factors are not in your hands.

Can SOUP Be a Complete Dinner By itself?

B.Sc.(Hons), P.G.Dietetics

Can SOUP Be a Complete Dinner By itself?

Can soup be a complete dinner by itself?

Soups are normally the first thing you order at a restaurant, followed by at least two other meal courses. The universally accepted appetizer takes a backseat when contemplating dinner. But can it be considered a complete dinner meal in itself?

To rightly be considered as dinner, a soup must not only be filling, but must also be correct on the calorie chart. Hearty soups like Russian Borsch, Vietnamese pho, and Italian Minestrone are considered as main courses. They have an apt mix of vegetables, protein and carbohydrates in a single bowl. Thick soups that carry not only the broth, but also toppings that make them sumptuous, can be had as your dinner.

These kind of all-in-one soups, that carry a number of condiments on their side, and ingredients in them, are also a great way of utilizing leftovers. For fussy eaters, a lot of ingredients can be blended well and masked in the form of soup. It is a perfect comfort food, which can be easily cooked, and is loved by almost everyone. It also carries benefits for people who want to lose weight.

Home-made soups are much healthier than the ready-to-drink packet ones as the packet ones have starch and few other ingredients which are not healthy. Another important thing is the time of having these soups. It should be preferred that soups should be taken as early as possible in the evenings, latest by 7:00pm, if at home and 8:00pm if having dinner out as it has salt content which can lead to water retention in the body if consumed too late. The soup can be coupled with freshly cut salad without any creams or fat content.

The calories in a soup can range from 20 to 100 approximately, depending upon the density and the additives. However, the usual by-the-sides like breadsticks, potatoes, rice crackers, naan bread, tofu croutons, creme fraiche, or even a spoonful of pesto etc. increase the calorie content and hence should be avoided.

So the next time you stress about what to cook for dinner, just pick up some vegetables off the shelf, or meat, and blend your way through an easy,nutritious and yummy dinner choice.

There is no problem in doing the sex during the pregnancy. But you have to take care. There should not be any pressure on your wife's abdomen. Hence do the intercourse with top up position. That means wife is on top and you are down.

Don't get panic. It's not industry to have target and timeline. At 23 year age you can wait. Don't mix sex with reproduction as target. You will get frustrated. Enjoy your marriage life. After 6 moths if you don't get pregnancy visit gynaecologist.

You are having short cycles and though initially, when the cycles resume after delivery, these can be irregular but it will be better to get yourself examined to rule out any infection, hormonal imbalance or any other problem.

You're not pregnant. Cryptic pregnancy is when woman is unaware of being pregnant, as she has no symptoms to suspect 2 has bits of periods every month and despite all of above baby keeps growing up to 9 months! in your case urine test is negative. Ct scan though not recommended during suspected pregnancy because of radiation risks was done for you and it shows, normal uterus. Hcg test in blood done but shows a reading of less than 0.1 units need to be ignored. Take better care of your future. If you don't want to get pregnant use proper precautions like oral contraceptive or intra uterine devices, as every time you suspect something taking emergency pills is not safe for health of a woman. Emergency doesn't mean routine intake of these medicines labelled as to use it during emergency only.

Yes ,there is always a chance of vaginal delivery after one C- section. We call it trial of labour. But if C section has been done bcz one has narrow passage (contracted pelvis) or any indication that can occur again, then you can have it again. So it is not necessary that once c section, next also c section.

Hi , unfortunately, there is no one-size-fits-all' when it comes to suggesting a meal plan. One would have to understand your current eating patterns, your work schedule, your sleep schedule etc. To be able to make personalized recommendations.
