If she has 28days of regular cycle then her fertile period is 12-16days. How to calculate is suppose her first day of period is 5march then her fertile period will let from 16-20. If she has 32 days of cycle then she ovulat from 14days before her date. Example 5march she will be due on 10th april then ovulation will be 28 march.

My wife is 5'3" and weigh 86 kg. We want to conceive but with this weight is there any health issues in it? also which days are high for conceiving after her period days?

MBBS, MD Obs & Gynae, FNB Reproductive Medicine

High weight is a health risk as there are more chances of developing diabetes and hypertension during pregnancy. if cycles are regular from 28 to 30 days, day 12 to day 16 are highly fertile.

Desai Bhuma I have been diagnosed for left ovarian hemorrhagic cyst which is 6.3*3.7*2.3 cm in size. I am on hormone therapy only from one day.

How many days we can have sex before or after period?

The day you start period is called 1st day
Your cycle is 28 days,means your next period is expected on 28th day
Deduct 14 from 28 it is the ovulation day, it means ovulation will take place on 14th day.
Sperms is shed in vagina will remain active for about 4 days could be more
Safe days- 1st to 7th day, and 21st to 28th day
Fertile days- 13th day to 16th day are highly fertile

Treatments in Panchakarma Therapy

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), M.D in Ayurveda, Ph.D
Ayurveda, Hyderabad
Treatments in Panchakarma Therapy

Panchakarma is a therapeutic treatment to clean your mind and body. It includes five treatments to remove toxins from your body. Panchakarma reduces stress, cleanses, rejuvenates and helps to restore the balance of your body and mind.

The five steps of treatment in the panchakarma therapy are Vamana, Virechana, Nasya, Basti and Raktamokshana.

  1. Vamana: Vamana helps to remove the 'kapha' toxins from your body. It cleanses the respiratory tract. Vamana helps in treating asthma, cough, anemia, nasal congestion and obesity.
  2. Virechana: Virechana eliminates the 'Pitta' toxins from the body. It helps to clean the liver and gallbladder of your body. It helps to treat diseases like piles, acidity, constipation and digestive disorder.
  3. Nasya: Nasya removes 'kapha' toxins from the head and neck region through the nose. It treats throat diseases, headaches, migraines and improves memory and eyesight.
  4. Basti: Basti is the most important treatment. It cleans almost all the toxins from the body and heals most of the diseases. The cleaning is conducted through the urinary or anal channel.
  5. Raktamokshana: Raktamokshana is a treatment advised only for few people according to their conditions and needs. It is a process through which the impure blood is taken out of the body.

Other than healing specific diseases, Panchakarma also has other benefits, such as

  1. Balancing your complete body system
  2. Increasing your physical and mental capabilities
  3. Increasing your energy level
  4. Also improves your skin complexion and helps to lose excess weight.
  5. Improves the condition of your joints and increases flexibility.

While undergoing the panchakarma treatment, it is expected that the person will maintain a specific diet also. Your diet must include plenty of water, fruits, vegetables, light food and herbal tea. You should strictly avoid caffeine. Panchakarma is a very effective treatment and at the same time, is harmless.

I am not sure so far what will be safe days for intercourse without condoms, my wife end period date was 1 Feb, and her cycle days 28. So what are the safe days for intercourse after period end or before period start, which are specific days to enjoy sex without condom.

In a 28 days cycle the baby or fertile days are between 11-16th day when 1st day is the first day of bleeding. The other days are relatively safe days, I say relatively safe as aberrant ovulation can occur in an odd cycle which can lead to pregnancy in'safe period. Safe period method alone is not a reliable method of contraception. So I will advise use of condoms or oral contraceptive pills.

Hello- An irregular period, medically known as oligomenorrhea, is a common problem among women. A number of factors can cause this problem, such as eating disorders, significant weight loss or gain, anemia, menopause, thyroid disorders, hormonal imbalance, liver disease, tuberculosis, irritable bowel syndrome, diabetes, recent birth or miscarriage, polycystic ovarian syndrome, uterine abnormalities, and other health conditions. It can be made normal with life style changes and ayurvedic medications.

These tablets are natural micronised progestrone tablets which are meant for maintainence of pregnancy. You have twin pregnancy and therefore you have been advised to take them so that your uterus remains relaxed and the babies grow well inside. The vaginal route is the preferred mode for micronised progestrone. So, keep these tablets vaginally. All the best and take care.
