If you and your partner are planning to conceive, you should start taking folic acid before you get pregnant. Folic acid helps to provide the best health outcomes for your baby when it is growing. Taking folic acid daily before and during pregnancy also prevents the occurrence of neural tube defects, such as spina bifida, in your baby. 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. An egg lives for about 12-24 hours after it? s released. For pregnancy to happen, the egg must be fertilised by a sperm within this time. If you want to get pregnant, having sex every couple of days will mean there? s always sperm waiting in the fallopian tubes to meet the egg when it? s released. Any querries consult privetly.

Lactare powder/ capsules help, shatavari capsules by himalaya helps too. Home treatment to increase lactation is jeera, ajwain, dates, assorted nuts & drinking milk for 2. At 3 months you can start feeding with a baby spoon-rice water and or / spoon of orange juice/ moong daal clear soup & wait and watch for digestion but no bottle feeding with other milks till 1 year. Do write back about positive effects.

My wife is now pregnant for the last 1& half months, can I do intercourse right now?

Sex during pregnancy is extremely safe for most women when uncomplicated, non-riskily pregnancies. If there is no complication you can but if possible abstain for few weeks as women have no great desire for sex because they feel tired and nauseous,

lybrate-user, check your fiancee haemoglobin in blood. If it is low irregular periods will come. The problem you mentioned nothing to do with your foreplay. It will set right in future after marriage. Since your fiancee is good sexual desire ,try to satisfy her, will smooth sexual act, not agressive ,after marriage.-- pain and other problems will settle down. Bye-- ENJOY.

You have loose vagina. You want to tight it. This is due to weak pelvic floor muscles. You need to take one month treatment only to make strong your pelvic floor muscles. You have to follow certain instructions for permanent solution. If interested, I advise you to tell me your weight, height, eating habits and any medication already taking, for better guidance and natural, safe and permanent treatment.

Useful Tips For Pain During Menstrual Periods!

Useful Tips For Pain During Menstrual Periods!


6 effective ways to manage period pain

Although menstrual cycles or monthly periods are a normal physiological process, they can sometimes be accompanied by pain and excessive cramping and can affect your quality of life. While the pain is usually tolerable and goes away in a day or two, it can be worse on some occasions. Here are some effective ways to handle period pain:

1. Use a heating pad
You can place a heating pad or a hot water bottle over your lower abdominal area to help in relieving pain. Heat is quite helpful in easing the cramping and reducing the intensity of pain.

2. Massage with essential oils
Massaging with certain aromatic essential oils is also an effective way to relieve menstrual cramps. These include lavender oil, eucalyptus oil, clary sage oil and marjoram oil. Massage your lower back and abdomen with these oils for best results. You can massage at around bedtime for a restful sleep and relief from cramping.

3. Exercise
This might come as a surprise but exercise helps to release the pain relieving chemicals called endorphins. Experts suggest that women who exercise regularly often have less menstrual pain. To prevent cramps in the future, make exercise a part of your lifestyle.

4. Have herbal teas
Certain teas help in reducing the intensity of period pain and cramping. These include peppermint tea, cinnamon tea, ginger tea, chamomile tea and tulsi tea. You can add any of these teas during your periods for easing the pain and cramps.

5. Take a pain killer
You can take pain medications to relieve cramps. These include paracetamol, mefenamic acid and other analgesics. Paracetamol is an over the counter medicine but for others you will need a prescription from a doctor. It is best to take these medications as soon as bleeding or cramping starts. Painkillers can however cause side effects like acidity, gastritis and even stomach ulcers if taken too frequently.

6. Try pain relief patches
These are subcutaneous skin patches that can be applied directly over the skin. They are purely herbal and contain eucalyptus oil and menthol, both of which help in reducing cramping and relaxing the muscles. These patches release the ingredients in a controlled manner, thereby maintaining their levels in the blood stream throughout the day. This helps in ensuring long lasting action. They are easily available as over the counter medications. The advantages of these patches are that they are 100% herbal, are extremely easy to use and are free from side effects that can occur by popping painkillers on a regular basis.

So, go ahead and try these pain relieving therapies and enjoy pain free periods. Stay healthy, stay happy!
