I had a c sec delivery on last Friday can you suggest me some foods for healing d stitches n can I have milk.
Yes you can have toned milk, avoid foods causing distension, chickpea, beans, cauliflower, fried foods or too much salt and sugar and spices. Take jeera, ajwain, ginger, garlic as it enhances lactation, do feed the baby, no bottles, eat more proteins like milk and curds and boiled eggs plus proteins supplements plus seasonal vegetables and fruits plus eating according to constitution. Take more proteins. Do routine work for baby only. No exertion or exercises for 8 weeks till internal stitches are healed. Outwardly it's a dry wound. You can take a bath and maintain hygiene, good luck to mother and baby.

Yes, many women with PCOS conceive well but may need some assistance. Most of them conceive after simple things like weight control and exercise. In other women, drugs may be needed.

Normally you can enjoy your decline in pregnancy unless she has complications. Side to side position is a better choice. Up to 8 months you can do sexual intercourse.

Folate and Iron: Folic acid and iron rich foods should be continued this month as well. (Please go through the article – pregnancy diet-first month) Calcium: Calcium is an essential mineral that you need the most during this month of pregnancy because the ossifying of the fetus bone starts during this month. If you don’t have 1000 mg of calcium intake per day during this time, the fetus will extract it from your body’s calcium reserves, increasing your chances of osteoporosis in the future. Dairy products: The dairy products are rich in calcium. Make it a practice of drinking two glasses of low-fat milk per day. Other milk products like yogurt, cheese, etc. Are likewise a beneficial source of calcium. Therefore, include milk and milk products in your daily menu. Vegetables: Vegetables like kale, turnip, broccoli, cabbage, romaine lettuce, leafy green vegetables are rich in calcium Tofu: Tofu is one of the calcium rich food popular among the expecting mother Almonds: Each almond nut provides 70- 80 mg of calcium Proteins: You have to take extra 25 grams of protein every day during the pregnancy period. You can increase the intake of protein by including any of the following items in your daily menu: Poultry: Turkey and chicken are a good source of protein Whole grains: Food items made out of whole grains are an excellent source of protein Eggs: By enjoying omelets, scrambled eggs, or an egg salad, you are satisfying a portion of the daily needed protein intake. An egg provides around 6 grams of protein Nuts and seeds: Nuts like peanut, pistachio, almonds, cashew, walnuts, etc. And seeds like sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds are an excellent source of protein Lean meat: Lean meats are a good source of protein. One portion of well-cooked lean beef, pork, or lamb provides 33 grams of protein Legumes: Legumes like black beans, kidney beans, white beans, etc. Help to meet the daily-required proteins. Food items made from soybeans are also a good source of protein. Include lentils in your pregnancy diet to get optimum proteins Oranges: Include fresh orange juice or fruit itself in the daily menu. It is not only rich in vitamin C and calcium, but also the tangy flavor of it will help to minimize the discomforts of morning sickness. It will also have a refreshing effect on you Oatmeal: Oatmeal is rich in fiber and calcium Banana: Banana is a rich source of vitamin B6, vitamin C, fiber, iron, folic acid and potassium Remember if you are not able to stick to a healthy diet for the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, there is still plenty of time to make it up for. After 12 weeks, most women find their nausea and morning sickness disappearing or dissipating, enabling them to eat better.

If your first day of last menses was 30 july 2015 then your due date is 6 may 2016 and now you r carrying pregnancy of 35 weeks + 2 days. It is calculated by adding 9 months +7 days to the first day of last menses. Best method to calculate the expected date is by 6-11 weeks sonography, if you have one then edd must be written on sonography.

Dear, since doctor has already seen it you should undergo the investigation. It may be only a benign growth which needs to be removed. Cancer is a remote possiblity unless proven otherwise.

Benefits of exercise

M.sc in dietetics and community nutrittion management
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Kolkata
Benefits of exercise
Step right up! It's the miracle cure we've all been waiting for.

It can reduce your risk of major illnesses, such as heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and cancer by up to 50% and lower your risk of early death by up to 30%.

It’s free, easy to take, has an immediate effect and you don’t need a GP to get some. Its name? Exercise.

Click on the links below to find out if you're doing enough for your age:

early childhood (under five years old)
young people (five to 18 years old)
adults (19 to 64 years old)
older adults (65 and over)

Exercise is the miracle cure we’ve always had, but for too long we’ve neglected to take our recommended dose. Our health is now suffering as a consequence.

This is no snake oil. Whatever your age, there's strong scientific evidence that being physically active can help you lead a healthier and even happier life.

People who do regular activity have a lower risk of many chronic diseases, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke, and some cancers.

Research shows that physical activity can also boost self-esteem, mood, sleep quality and energy, as well as reducing your risk of stress, depression, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

“If exercise were a pill, it would be one of the most cost-effective drugs ever invented,” says Dr Nick Cavill, a health promotion consultant.
Health benefits

Given the overwhelming evidence, it seems obvious that we should all be physically active. It's essential if you want to live a healthy and fulfilling life into old age.

It's medically proven that people who do regular physical activity have:

up to a 35% lower risk of coronary heart disease and stroke
up to a 50% lower risk of type 2 diabetes
up to a 50% lower risk of colon cancer
up to a 20% lower risk of breast cancer
a 30% lower risk of early death
up to an 83% lower risk of osteoarthritis
up to a 68% lower risk of hip fracture
a 30% lower risk of falls (among older adults)
up to a 30% lower risk of depression
up to a 30% lower risk of dementia
A modern problem

People are less active nowadays, partly because technology has made our lives easier. We drive cars or take public transport. Machines wash our clothes. We entertain ourselves in front of a TV or computer screen. Fewer people are doing manual work, and most of us have jobs that involve little physical effort. Work, house chores, shopping and other necessary activities are far less demanding than for previous generations.

We move around less and burn off less energy than people used to. Research suggests that many adults spend more than seven hours a day sitting down, at work, on transport or in their leisure time. People aged over 65 spend 10 hours or more each day sitting or lying down, making them the most sedentary age group.
Sedentary lifestyles

Inactivity is described by the Department of Health as a “silent killer”. Evidence is emerging that sedentary behaviour, such as sitting or lying down for long periods, is bad for your health.

Not only should you try to raise your activity levels, but you should also reduce the amount of time you and your family spend sitting down.

Common examples of sedentary behaviour include watching TV, using a computer, using the car for short journeys and sitting down to read, talk or listen to music – and such behaviour is thought to increase your risk of many chronic diseases, such as heart disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes, as well as weight gain and obesity.

“Previous generations were active more naturally through work and manual labour, but today we have to find ways of integrating activity into our daily lives,” says Dr Cavill.

Whether it's limiting the time babies spend strapped in their buggies, or encouraging adults to stand up and move frequently, people of all ages need to reduce their sedentary behaviour.

“This means that each of us needs to think about increasing the types of activities that suit our lifestyle and can easily be included in our day,” says Dr Cavill.

Crucially, you can hit your weekly activity target but still be at risk of ill health if you spend the rest of the time sitting or lying down. For tips on building physical activity and exercise into your day, whatever your age, read Get active your way.

Causes of irregular periods your menstrual cycle can be disturbed if you change your method of contraception or you have an imbalance of the hormones oestrogen and progesterone. It's not unusual to have a hormone imbalance for a few years after puberty and before the menopause. This can cause your menstrual cycle to become longer or shorter. Your periods may also become lighter or heavier. Polycystic ovary syndrome polycystic ovary syndrome (pcos) occurs when very small cysts (small, fluid-filled sacs) develop in the ovaries. The usual symptoms of pcos are irregular or light periods or no periods at all. This is because, in women with pcos, ovulation (the release of an egg) may not take place as often as normal. The production of hormones may also be unbalanced, and you could have higher levels of testosterone than normal. Testosterone is a male hormone that women usually have a small amount of. Thyroid disorders a thyroid disorder is another possible, but rare, cause of irregular periods. The thyroid gland, found in the neck, produces hormones that maintain the body's metabolism (the chemical processes your body uses to turn food into energy). Your gp may test for a thyroid problem by taking a blood test to check levels of thyroid hormones in your blood. Use sepia 200 three doses.
