Jab koi ladki pregnant hoti hai toh baby ki heartbeat kitne weeks tak maximum aa jaati hai.

Jab koi ladki pregnant hoti hai toh baby ki heartbeat kitne weeks tak maximum aa jaati hai.
Cardiac activity in a developing fetus usually starts at the end of the 5th week. So by 6 weeks you should be able to see a heartbeat via ultrasound and by 10-12 weeks you should be able to hear the heartbeat via doppler device. A heartbeat would not be visible at 4-5 weeks of pregnancy.

Acromegaly - A Brief Overview!

Acromegaly - A Brief Overview!

The human body is truly amazing and complex. However, it is also known to have a fine balance. This is especially true when it comes to the various hormones, which have their respective effects on the body. Sometimes, though, things can go a bit wrong and acromegaly happens to be a prime example of that. But what exactly is acromegaly?

The teen years are generally known to be the period during which hormones have their greatest impact on a human body. However, acromegaly refers to a situation where the growth hormone is secreted in too large a quantity, when the person is already an adult. What this means is that the bones of a person, who stopped growing long time back, suddenly start expanding again, which they really should not!

The bones of the face, hands as well as those of the feet expand. It is important to get treated for acromegaly because, if there is no speedy treatment, then there can be further complications. In some cases, the situation can be life threatening as well. Also, if you go for your treatment immediately, then there is a fair chance to prevent your features from changing. However, it is to be kept in mind that detecting acromegaly is not really that easy. In quite a few cases, it goes on for years, prior to it being detected.


A non cancerous tumour, also known as adenoma, is often the cause for acromegaly. The tumour in this case is located on the pituitary gland. In many such, the person has his or her vision compromised on and also has frequent headaches. This is due to the tumour pressing on the other parts of the brain, which are in the vicinity of it.

In some other cases, the cause of acromegaly may just be a tumour, which is located in an area a bit distant from the pituitary gland. So, the tumour may be on the pancreas or on one of the kidneys or even on one of the lungs. This tumour may secrete the growth hormone on its own or cause it to be secreted by the pituitary gland.

Generally, imaging is used to diagnose acromegaly. Drugs and surgery are used to help block the growth hormone and remove the tumour. After the surgery, radiation may be used to get rid of the cells in the region. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Endocrinologist.

Need For Cosmetic Treatment For Brides

Need For Cosmetic Treatment For Brides

Getting married is one of the biggest moments in every woman’s life and everyone wants to look their best in their wedding photographs. Along with makeup and hairdos, your smile is also important. While all of us wish we were born with the perfect smile, many young brides may feel that their smiles are imperfect. Thankfully, with cosmetic dentistry, every smile can sparkle. Some of the common cosmetic dentistry procedures for young brides are:

  1. Teeth whiteningThe colour of your teeth can be affected by a number of factors. Regular consumption of tea and other caffeinated drinks may also cause stains on your teeth that cannot be removed by regular brushing. While this may not be something to concern yourself with on a normal day, yellowed teeth can mar a bride’s smile. Teeth whitening is a safe and quick way of removing stains from your teeth and whitening them. This form of treatment can even be done at home. All it involves is applying a gel on your teeth and wearing a teeth guard over it overnight for a few days.
  2. Tooth straightening: Misaligned teeth, crooked teeth ad gaps between teeth can easily be realigned with cosmetic dentistry. Unlike metal braces of the yesteryears, clear braces can correct alignment without hampering your appearance in the process. Using a cast of the current position of your teeth, sets of aligners are made that progressively correct the position of your teeth. Each set of aligners is worn for 3-4 weeks before shifting to the next set. If need be these aligners can be removed for a day when you have a special function and put back on after the function.
  3. Tooth veneers: Dental veneers are a great way to hide cracks on the tooth or to correct discolouration of teeth. These veneers can be described as thin porcelain shells that fit over the visible surface of your tooth. They can also be used to the visually correct spacing between teeth and hide chipped tooth edges. Veneers are long lasting and give a natural look to your smile.
  4. Dental implants: Missing teeth can give your smile a goofy appearance. Thankfully, if you have lost a tooth, you can easily correct your smile with dental implants. A dental implant tooth has a titanium root that is fixed to the gums and a natural-looking replacement tooth that is fitted to match the rest of your teeth.

As per your data about long and short period length, the period should have come on 8th June or 11th June. As today is just 9th, and she has already passed 8th, it would be best to wait till 11th and if there is NO menses by 12, do a Urine Pregnancy Test on 12th morning using an early morning sample in a LAB......
