Kegel Exercise

BHMS
Homeopath, Sindhudurg
Kegel Exercise

The muscle you are working during kegels is called the pc muscle (pubococcygeus), and it's the same muscle you use when you control the flow of urine. Think about when you go pee then someone knocks on the door and you stop the stream of pee that muscle that you contract to stop the flow of urine is the pc muscle. Try flexing it right now.

This is also the muscle you use to hold in a fart. If you haven't found it yet, pretend you are holding in a poop  that's the muscle. When you do these, try not to flex other muscles, like your stomach or thighs. It's okay if you're squeezing your butt hole (that's part of the pc muscle), but don't squeeze your butt cheeks.
Variation

A kegel exercise routine will consist of contracting this muscle several times, at different lengths, and resting between reps. Try holding the muscle for 1 second. Try 3 seconds. Try 8 seconds. When you are new to this it is difficult and normal if you can only hold for a second or two. You will get better with time!

A workout routine will involve a few sets of these. For example, squeeze for 5 seconds, rest for 5 seconds, and do that 10 times. Now wait a minute and repeat the whole thing again. Some people prefer a static routine of 2 sets of 10 reps at 5 second holds, others come up with varying sets.

Also try doing these in different positions. Try standing up, sitting down, crouched, and in the fetal position. Try legs apart and legs closed. Some positions may be easier for kegeling than others.

Tips:
Remember to breathe holding your breathe during these will make it more difficult you may get turned on while doing these. That's fine, just go with it! you're only doing 2 things tensing or relaxing those pee-stopping muscles. It's best to do on an empty bladder, so if you have to pee, go to the bathroom before. As with any exercise, the more you stick with it, the better you become. Don't give up if you don't see results in a day you'll see results within a week!

Well, some women who are lactating have delay in commencing their periods, and few have their periods immediately after a month or two after delivery. As you say the Urine pregnancy test is Negative, then it means she may have missed her periods either due to breast feeding or due to emotional, or physical stress.

It is nota rule that you must bleed. If the hymen is open even due prior physical activity, it may not bleed. Dont get worried about pregnancy right now. Youcan wait.

Hi lybrate-user, bleeding in early pregnancy is sign of abortion. Please take complete bed rest. Avoid lifting heavy weight, avoid sex. You need to take additional medicines in order to support pregnancy. Please share details of recent ultrasound report, blood test reports so that I can guide you further.

Mam now there are many methods available for this you can choose according to your need and convenience. I am not suggesting any because with out knowing your need it is useless. Every such method is unique and has some merits and some problems also. For example oral pills should be taken regularly as their schedule, and have very good effect but if you miss the dose it may be ineffective. So, first decide what is your need then we can find best option for you.

Why headache occurs during initial months of pregnancy? Is it a big concern or not? My wife is three months pregnant and having headache in the evening time. Is it a big concern?

Why headache occurs during initial months of pregnancy? Is it a big concern or not? My wife is three months pregnant ...
Head aches in pregnancy may be due to several reasons, whether big or not depends on how intense and frequent it is & also associated symptoms. It could be because of irregular food intake, dehydration due to less water intake or vomiting, refractory error of eyes (eye test suggested, blood pressure if increased can lead to head aches and sometimes it could be vascular head aches. So, adequate liquids & balanced diet is not sorting out the issue other thing which I mentioned needs to be ruled out by your doctor. Try evening walks in fresh air, avoid too much of tv/internet. Yoga, meditation should help.

Healthy living

Fast life does not allow for appropriate rest and due to unavoidable work at an office or home and sometimes we have to work without making a break and we take painkillers, but on should keep remembering that excessive and overuse of painkillers should be avoided as it affects our whole body. Due to work pressure, we keep the work continues even if we feel pain but we should not make any movement if pain appears on any activity rather avoid such activity. Many persons, particularly ladies wear high heels; it causes strain in the neck, low back pain and knee pain. So one should wear well-fitted footwear and should avoid pointed and a high heel to avoid crowding of toes and other bone problems.

INJURY-CUTS, SCRAPES, LACERATIONS, BRUISES

Homeopathic remedies can soothe the pain and soreness of bruises that come from injury, reduce swelling and fluid leakage into surrounding tissues, and generally encourage healing. Some of the commonly indicated remedies are:
 

 Arnica montana: traumatic injuries including bruises caused by impact with blunt objects (from simple contusions to concussions) and bruise-like soreness after muscular exertion (such as physically-taxing work, athletics, or childbirth).

 Calendula: useful for open wounds, ulcers; promotes healthy granulation and rapid healing. Is often used as local application for open wounds.

 Staphhysagria: lacerated or incised injury.

 Ledum palustre: this remedy is indicated contused, ecchymosed wounds when cold applications such as ice-packs or cold soaks bring some relief. Extravasation of blood in the lids (black eye), conjunctiva. Long discoloration after injuries.

 Hypericum: used for bruising or crushing injuries to body areas containing many nerves - smashed fingertips and toes, injuries to the spine or genitals, bruising or displacement of the tailbone (from falls or during childbirth), and injuries to the eyeball.

 Bellis perennis: for injuries and bruises, especially those caused by trauma to the trunk or in deeper tissues - for example, internal soreness after an accident or surgery.

 Calcarea phosphorica: indicated in bone-bruises, as well as other kinds of pain and soreness in the bones, also used when fractures are slow to heal.

Reason may be genetic cause of the embryo or any of the parents, hormonal problems, blood related problems. Now there is little scope of any precautions except repeat the scan and get prepared for the worst.

Whether you will get pregnant or not depends upon the time means on which day of your menstrual cycle you had sex but as you have taken I pill the chances of pregnancy are very less say about 20% so now wait for your periods and if by chance you don't get urine pregnancy test and proceed accordingly.
