According to these report, there is no problem with the endometrium and egg. But you need to find out whether tubes are open or not, for that get an HSG test done , if not done earlier. Also semen analysis of husband done.

Hello, The main reason of irregular menses is any nutritional deficiency apart from many other reasons. Take more of green vegetables, nuts, salads, seasonal fruits, yellow coloured veggies, milk & milk products, plenty of water and enough of sleep & rest. Take homoeopathic medication – Schwabe's Five Phos. And Alfaalfa Tonic – both thrice daily for 1 month. Thereafter revert me back..take care.

Hi lybrate-user. PCOS is a very common hormonal problem. Lot of women with PCOS can easily get pregnant with some assistance. The main problem with PCOS is that you don't ovulate every month. So taking medicines for egg development at the beginning of each cycle will help you get pregnant. Consult your Gynec regarding what medications will suit you best.

I was given general anesthesia for a surgery. It has been 2 weeks but the area near the needle piercing still pains a little and the vein at that part is a little swollen. Is this normal?

May be yes and may be no. Needle is inserted through a fine catheter and intravenous fluids are given through same during surgery. Once needle and catheter are removed some kind of local reaction like hardening of blood vessels is rarely seen. This will go away with time and heat therapy will help the blood vessel become smooth with no swelling. Good luck and do write back after a week.

Exercise- An Investment in Your Current and Future Health

Exercise is a vital part of preventive health care as you get older. It has beneficial effect on every part of the body. It keeps the skin and hair in good condition, makes you more energetic, speeds up the pasaage of food through the digestive ststem, it speeds up the metaboloism (the rate at which the body burns calories), it strengthens bones and muscles, it srablies blood sugar, prevents weight gain, has postive effect on the mind and emotions, beat depression and raise your self - esteem.
While you are exetcising, your optimum heart rate should always be betwwen 60 and 80 petcent of the maximum heart rate (mhr)
220-age=mhr
60% of your mhr is the minimum elevation of your heart rate that you should aim for during exercise. Now calculate 80% of your mhr, this is the maximum elevation of your heart rate that you should aim for during exercise. A heart rate that is between 60- 80% of your mhr is said to be in your training zone, eg- if you are 50, your mhr is 170, your minimum training heart rate is 102 and your maximum training heart rate is 136, if you stick to these guidelines you will be able to burn body fat and exercise your cardiovascular system safely. 
When you have finished exercising you should check that your heart returns to its normal rate wirhin 10 minutes, if it takes longer than 10 minutes, it is advisable that you exercise at a slower pace until you become fitter.

your wife is 35 years old already. If you r having regular sex then it's always better to get both of you evaluated once by doctor. U may need a semen analysis test n a couple of tests for her to find out if there s any cause for delay in pregnancy.
