After D&C you should wait for at least 2-3 months, so that your body may recover from weakness and uterine muscles strengthen again for new conception. Till then take diet rich in iron calcium and vitamins

Nothing if its little and not frequent. Usually its due to break of hymen. But if its more then checkup needed to guide you to be safe.

Weight reduction is first step in pcod, then regulate the menses and treat the other symptoms of pcos, proper investigations must. Ayurveda gives better result in such cases. Sometimes combine treatment also fruitful.

My periods is not come to every month & it's came only for two days, so please give me solution. What's the reason.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
My periods is not come to every month & it's came only for two days, so please give me solution. What's the reason.
Periods lasting from 2-7 days is considered as normal menses. Less flow for this short duration does not warrant any tests or treatment. If they come on time even with little irregularity, more than or equal to 2 days and > or equal to 1 pad in a day then menses are normal. Sometimes hormonal changes or stress can reduce the flow of menses but it will get cured automatically. But if it is happening regularly, then definitely you need to be investigated with sonography and blood tests: fsh, lh, tsh, and prolactin to find out the exact cause. You may be suffering from pcod or thyroid problem.

Hi lybrate-user please repeat test again it could be error also. Unfortunately if report is positive then you need to know about viral titer. If positive you should not neglect condition as it may transmit to baby. If you are sexually active then it may transmit to you. Please get test done for you also.

I have pcod since 5 years. I have taken treatment for 4 years but now docs says to go for operation. I am married 2 years back nd we have not planed for kids due to pcod problem. Is there any medicine to cure permanently from root. Sum medicine's won't suite me.

MBBS, DGO, MD, Fellowship in Gynae Oncology
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Pcod is more a lifestyle disorder and cured by lifestyle chances only. It does not have any permanent cure. Along with medicine lifestyle and dietary modification can help. Regular exercise, a healthy diet, weight control, and not smoking are all important parts of treatment for polycystic ovary syndrome (pcos). If you are overweight, weight loss may be all the treatment you need. Eat a balanced diet that includes lots of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat dairy products. Get regular exercise to help you control or lose weight and feel better. If you smoke, consider quitting.

Don't Forget Your Health on Diwali!

M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition, DNHE, P.G. Diploma in Panchkarma, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

Don't Forget Your Health on Diwali!
Wish you a happy diwali

Diwali exposes you to fire, smoke, heavy doses of artery-clogging fats, sugar quantities much, much higher than your daily recommended intake. If you drink, there's the 5 days of fighting hangover with even more alcohol.


This dangerous traditional recipe can be overcome.

Pay attention to the following health tips - these are the bare minimum you need to stay fit, happy and healthy enough to party into the new year.

Burning up the air

Respiratory ailments are going to see a jump in city folk. These include allergies, asthma and pollution, caused not only by firecrackers but the number of people driving around delivering diwali goodies. Asthma patients should avoid firecrackers - especially those that emanate smoke. If you have to, organize a aerial-firecracker display early in the evening (9-ish), before the air gets clogged with sulfurous smoke. Keep your inhaler and asthma medication nearby before and after diwali.

Practicing mithai safety

More than avoiding binging on the mithai, the increase in food adulteration around diwali is what will hurt your health more. There is reportedly an increase in misbranded, substandard and unsafe sweets during diwali.

To keep yourself safe, remember to check the manufacturing and expiry dates, along with license number of packed products, and always get a bill against your purchase. Kaju and besan sweets are the safest - they have the least chances of adulteration. Avoid'chhena' and'khoya' sweets, along with sweets and milk products from roadside shops.

Diwali, snacking and weight gain

A sudden shock to both normal meals and regular sleep patterns comes from late night parties binge-eating'tanking' up on alcohol and lack of exercise. Instead, undertake a military-like mindset towards practicing moderation, especially towards friers food, alcohol. Replace oily snacks with a combination of fresh fruits, curd dips, raw salads, roasted food items and nuts like almonds and pistachios.


And, since being a monk during diwali is socially frowned upon, the drinking and eating out needs to be balanced with a post-diwali detox. This requires a change in diet, as will as ayurvedic massages and steam bath to leach out toxins. Replace carbohydrates and proteins with fibre and vitamins in your diet, and take more water.

Mu wife had ectopic pregnancy in last nov and had an operation to remove the same. Please advice when we can try for a next pregnancy and what all percuations we have to take

MBBS (Gold Medalist, Hons), MS (Obst and Gynae- Gold Medalist), DNB (Obst and Gynae), Fellow- Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility (ACOG, USA), FIAOG

You can try for pregnancy after 3 months after the operation. Please remember, after one ectopic, chance of having 2nd ectopic increases by 10% but there is 40% chance of having a live baby in next pregnancy. There are nothing much precautions to follow except that you should consult your gynaecologist to find out the cause of the ectopic, if any cause is found (like infection, endometriosis etc). If the cause is found, that should be treated. Otherwise, you should try for natural conception and consult doctor as soon as she misses period, as there is need of very close monitoring in next pregnancy. Wishing you all the best

Hello, I want to know that at what a good time for pregnancy. My age is 24 nd husband age is 29. Can I wait for 6 months or not?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology

This is the best time 25 years for a woman. If you want to wait for another 6 months, that is absolutely fine. Once you cross 30 yrs, many complications starts happening. So this is the best time for any woman to get pregnant, i. E. 25 years.

Miracle Drink-Apple, Carrot, and Beetroot Juice

Miracle Drink-Apple, Carrot, and Beetroot Juice

What do you get when you mix together apple, carrot, and beetroot juice? You get miracle drink.
The drink has gained fame by the name, miracle drink because the countless benefits it gives to your brain and body is truly a miracle.

This powerful drink was introduced by chinese herbalists for the treatment of lung cancer and many other diseases ages ago. But currently, it has gained massive popularity all over the world because of its magical health benefits.

The drink is simple to make all you need is a juicer, apples, carrots, and beetroots. Juice them with their skins on and consume right after making it. Do not store. How many carrots, apples or beets you add to the juice is up to your own taste. You can either add more carrots or increase the number of apples. For best results, try to take them in equal quantities. You can even add lime juice to enhance its taste but do not add sugar.

Power of two vegetable and one fruit:
Packed in this juice are the power of two vegetables and one fruit, all enriched with a plentiful amount of lifesaving antioxidants. Apples contain nutrients like vitamin a, b1, b2, b6, c, e and k, folate, niacin, zinc, copper, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, iron, calcium, sodium, and manganese. Also, the dietary fibers found in apples are very beneficial for health. Carrots contain a wide variety of vitamins such as vitamin a, b1, b2, b3, b6, c, e and k, folate, niacin and pantothenic acid. There are minerals like potassium, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium and selenium packed in it. One of the most important components found in carrots is beta-carotene. You can get the best of these nutrients by juicing the carrots. And the heart friendly beetroots are enriched with nutrients like vitamin a, c, b-complex, potassium, iron, magnesium, and copper. They contain anti-aging agents as well.

With the combined effect of the three, you can get enough nutrients that will not just keep you going through the day but would also have long-term beneficial effects on your health.

Have you gone for an ultrasound pregnancy for the well being if the baby. If ultrasound says normal then relax it could be indigestion or gas which is common in pregnancy, have digene 2 tsp when there is discomfort. Eat less spicy food.

My dear lybrate-user, fenugreek seeds will not help you. Your weight gain could be a hormonal disturbance like pcod. For that you need to go go a gynaecologist and find the reason for the weight gain. For that you will have to get blood tests done like fsh, lh, prolactin, tsh. Also you need an ultrasound pelvis and medication.
