Is it possible that the urge to eat sour food and a sudden increase in appetite always means that the girl is pregnant?

No it does not mean so. But it differs from patient to patient. Some patients appetite mostly decreases when pregnant. Thanks

Penis Tears After Sex

Sex is enjoyable. However, there are occasions where the sex is no longer pleasurable, like when the male develops a cut on his penis during or after intercourse. Surprisingly, penis tears are very common. But it is not frequently reported by men because of feeling ashamed about admitting the problem to their doctors. However, no matter how small the cut, you should go to see your physician, especially if the tear heals slowly.

Causes of Penis Tears

Penis tears can result from a variety of causes. The most common are:

Friction - The most obvious cause of a cut on the penis is too much friction during sex. While it is true that the more friction between the vagina and the penis the more pleasure is generated, it also goes along this line that penile injury is more likely to occur. Guys endowed with bigger penises should bear in mind that they are more at risk of such injuries, especially if they have sex with a smaller partner or if they love to have deep penetration sex.

Frenulum injury - There is a structure underneath the penis head that is known as the frenulum. It is like a ridge of small skin connecting the head of the penis to the shaft skin. A shorter frenulum means that the penile skin is dragged easily forward and back during sex. When the skin is tugged back, the action will cause some pain or discomfort. At some point, when the sex is already too hard, the frenulum may be ripped or torn, resulting in bleeding.

Balanitis - This is a condition that often surfaces as a result of chronic diabetes. Diabetic patients are at risk because wound healing is generally slowed down. But in most cases, balinitis is caused by poor hygiene and infection; that's why uncircumcised men are more prone to getting this condition. It is characterized by an inflammation of the penile head and the foreskin. Men usually suspect balanitis if their penises are easily reddened, especially at the head part. Rashes on the same area are frequently seen as well.

Yeast infection - The most common type of male yeast infection is the one affecting the male reproductive organ. Sexual dysfunction, burning sensation during sex, reddened penis head and blistered penile trunk are the most common signs and symptoms of yeast infection. Rashes, swelling, and a cut on the penis also develop more easily among yeast-infected males.

Other causes - Genital piercings and an allergy to latex condoms have also been reported to cause a cut on the penis

Pregnancy can occur only one day of cycle that is ovulation day so unprotected sex around that day only important. As only one day in month nature should be given 12-24 trials (12 to 24 months) before couple need any active management by Gynecologist or infertility specialist.

Hi lybrate-user. What other tests have been done. Just doing a d&c does not have any bearing on fertility. The cause has to be first diagnosed. Please tell me the deails of the tests done so far for you and your husband. Once I get to see the reports we can have a detailed discussion on further course of action. Do not worry so much. If the right treatment is followed you shall conceive soon.

No need to worry, it happens sometimes. If this happens in routine then it is problematic. The best day for conceiving are 4 days before nd 4 days after your ovulation. Now how do we calculate this ovulation day. It is 14 days minus expected date of your next periods.

Don't panic. Give time to yourself. A normal couple can wait upto 1 year if they are not using contraception. Try to do intercourse in midcycle because the chances of conception are high at this time. This is the time when the egg is released from the ovary and if it meets the sperm at this time, then obviously the chances of pregnancy are high. Since you have cycle of 25 days, try to do intercourse between 11th -14th day of your cycle (count first day of your periods as the first day of your cycles. However, if this doesnot work for next 6 months, then go and see a gynaecologist who can investigate you further with blood tests, semen analysis and ultrasonography. Till then, follow my advise of midcycle intercourse.

Pregnancy Test At Home in hindi - घर पर गर्भावस्था का परीक्षण

Pregnancy Test At Home in hindi - घर पर गर्भावस्था का परीक्षण

जीवन के बेहतरीन अनुभवों में से एक अनुभव है माँ बनने का अनुभव। एक माँ और बच्चे से ज्यादा निजी और क्लोज कोई और रिश्ता नहीं होता। पर कई बार इसी रिश्ते की शुरुआत यानी प्रेगनेंसी का पता करना हीकंफ्यूजन से भरा होता है। कई बार तो प्रेग्नेंट होने की जानकारी ना होने पर हम खुदके साथ सावधानी नहीं बरतते हैं जिसकी वजह से बाद में मिसकैरेज या मां शिशु के स्वास्थ्य समस्या होने का खतरा बन जाता है। पर अब चिंता करने की जरूरत नहीं। शरीरिक संबन्ध बनाने के दौरान जिस भी महीने का आपका पीरियड मिस होउल्टी, पीठ में दर्द, आलस कगने जैसे कुछ शारीरिक बदलाव होने पर बिना किसी कंफ्यूजन के हमारे बताए गए घरेलू नुस्खों से पता कर लें कि आप प्रेग्नेंट हैं या नहीं।

1. टूथपेस्ट 
घर पर ही प्रेगनेंसी जांचने के लिए के आपको सफेद रंग के टूथपेस्ट की जरूरत होगी। 
सबसे पहले एक डिसपोजल ग्लास में सुबह के समय के यूरिन (पेशाब) को सैंपल के तौर पर रख लें। सुबह का यूरिन टेस्ट करने के लिए इसलिए इस्तेमाल किया जाता है क्योंकि उस समय पेशाब में HCG हार्मोन का स्तर काफी ज्यादा होता है जिसकी वजह से प्रेगनेंसी टेस्ट का रिजल्ट सुनियोजित करने में आसानी होती है।
अब उस पेशाब के सैंपल में एक चम्मच के बराबर टूथपेस्ट मिला लें और उसे अच्छी तरीके से फेट ले। अगर उसको मिक्स करने के कुछ मिनट बाद टूथपेस्ट झागदार दिखता है और नीला रंग हो जाता है तो यह पॉजीटिव प्रेगनेंसी के संकेत हैं, लेकिन अगर आपको कोई प्रतिक्रिया नहीं होती तो आप प्रेगनेंट नहीं हैं।

2. ब्लीच
डिसपोजल या किसी पात्र में थोड़ी मात्रा में ब्लीच पाउडर लें और उसमे पेशाब के सैंपल को मिक्स कर लें। अगर मिक्स करने के बाद बुलबुले दिखाई देते हैं तो यह पॉजीटिव प्रेगनेंसी के संकेत हो सकते हैं।

3. विनेगर 
थोड़ी मात्रा में विनेगर लें और उसमे पेशाब के सैंपल को मिक्स कर लें। अगर मिक्स करने से विनेगर का रंग बदलता है, तो समझें की पॉसिबली आप गर्भवती हो सकती हैं।

4. शक्कर
चीनी में थोड़ी मात्रा में पेशाब का सैंपल मिलाएं। अगर चीनी घुलने की बजाय गुच्छों में हो जाए, तो सम्भवतः आपका यह प्रयोग आपको गर्भवती होने की ओर इशारा करता हैं।

5. कांच के ग्लास 
कांच के एक गिलास में यूरीन डालें। कुछ देर बाद अगर यूरीन पर सफेद परत बन जाए, तो यह टेस्ट पॉजिटिव हो सकता है अथवा नेगेटिव।

6. साबुन 
एक पात्र में साबुन और यूरीन मिलाएं। अगर थोड़ी देर बाद इसमें बुलबुले बनते हैं, तो समझें कि प्रेगनेंसी टेस्टपॉजिटिव है।

7. डंडेलिओन की पत्ती
डंडेलिओनकी पत्तियों को एक पैकेट में बांधकर कर जमीन पर रख दें और ध्यान रहे की इन पत्तियों को सूरज की किरणों से बचा कर रखें उसके पश्चात इन पत्तियों पर यूरिन की कुछ बुँदे डाले और दस मिनट बाद इन पत्तियों पर लाल रैंड के फफोले उठ जाते है तो इसका मतलब है आप प्रेगनेन्ट हैं।

8. डेटॉल से प्रेगनेंसी टेस्ट 
एक शीशी में 15 एमएल यूरिन और उतनी ही मात्रा में डेटॉल लें। इसे अच्छी तरीके से मिक्स कर लें। थोड़ी देर बाद अगर डेटॉल और यूरिन जो आपस में मिक्स हो गया था, अलग-अलग हो जाते हैं और यूरिन, डेटॉल पर तेल की तरह तैरने लगता है तो समझ लीजिये कि आप प्रेग्नेंट हैं। लेकिन इसके बजाय यदि यूरिन और डेटॉल आपस में अच्छे से घुल जाते हैं और दूध सी सफेदी जैसा एक पदार्थ बन जाता है तो समझ लीजिये कि आप प्रेग्नेंट नहीं हैं।

9. पाइन सोल 
पाइन सोल को एक क्लीनर की तरह यूज में ला सकते हैं। जो की आसानी से किसी भी दुकान पर मिल जाता है। समान मात्रा में पाइन सोल और यूरिन को मिक्स करें। थोड़ी देर बाद अगर उस मिश्रण का रंग बदल जाए तो आपका यह प्रयोग आपको गर्भवती होने की ओर इशारा करता हैं।

10. बेकिंग सोडा 
2 चम्मच बेकिंग सोडा और 1 चम्मच यूरिन को आपस में मिला लें अगर थोड़ी देर बाद इसमें बुलबुले बनते हैं, तो समझें प्रेगनेंसी टेस्ट पॉजिटिव है।

11. प्रेगनेंसी टेस्ट किट 
प्रेगनेंसी टेस्ट किट के इस्तेमाल का तरीका अलग अलग हो सकता हैं।
बहुत से टेस्ट किट में केवल टेस्ट स्टिक पर पेशाब करना होता है। वहीं, कुछ अन्य में आपको पहले पेशाब को एक छोटे कप में इकट्ठा करना होता है, और फिर टेस्ट स्ट्रिप को उसमें डुबोना होता है। या फिर आपको साथ में ड्रॉपर दिया जा सकता है, ताकि टेस्ट स्टिक पर पेशाब का थोड़ा सा नमूना डाला जा सके।
जांच का परिणाम किस तरह दर्शाया जाता है इसमें भी अंतर हो सकता है। कुछ टेस्ट में गुलाबी या नीली रेखाएं दिखाई देती हैं। कुछ अन्य में प्लस या माइनस के निशान या फिर पेशाब के नमूने के रंग में बदलाव आता है। डिजिटल टेस्ट में “प्रेग्नेंट” या “नॉट प्रेग्नेंट” लिखा हुआ आ जाता है और कुछ में तो यह भी अनुमान दिया होता है कि आपने कितने हफ्ते पहले गर्भाधान किया था।

लेकिन हां किसी भी घरेलू प्रेगनेंसी टेस्टकी शुरुवात करने से पहले कुछ खास बातों का ध्यान जरूर रखें।

  • घरेलू प्रेगनेंसी टेस्ट करने के तीन घंटे पहले तक मूत्र त्याग नहीं करना चाहिए। क्योंकि गर्भावस्था परीक्षण या प्रेगनेंसी टेस्ट करने के लिए यूरिन का नमूना लिया जाता है. क्योंकि यूरिन यानि पेशाब में मौजूद HCG हार्मोन से ही गर्भ का पता लगाया जाता है।
  • घरेलू प्रेगनेंसी टेस्ट के लिए आप जितने भी चीजो का प्रयोग कर रही हो उन चीजो की सफाई का खासा ख्याल रखे।
  • घरेलू प्रेगनेंसी टेस्ट विधि पुराने समय से लोग सफलतापूर्वक अपना रहे हैं। लेकिन फिर भी अपने संतुष्टि के लिए किसी उचित चिकित्सक से सलाह-मुशरह जरूर कर ले
  • प्रेगनेंसी टेस्ट निगेटिव आने के बाद 72 घंटे बाद ही दोबारा जांच करें.
  • अगर पीरियड और मिस हो जाए और टेस्ट में रिपोर्ट नेगेटिव आये तो स्त्री रोग विशेषज्ञ से सम्पर्क करें।

Juice Vs Fruit - What Benefits the Body More?

B.Sc.(Hons), P.G.Dietetics

Juice Vs Fruit - What Benefits the Body More?

Do you love to eat up the whole fruit? Or, is it the freshly crushed juice that appeals to you more. Both as you know are healthy options. However, is there really a difference between the nutritional value of the two, if it involves the same fruit?

The answer is a big 'Yes'.

While freshly squeezed fruit juice is a healthy addition to your daily diet, it cannot replace eating whole fruits (or vegetables). In the choice between juicing and eating whole fruits, though juicing has its advantages, the latter offers more nutrition. Here's why.

Advantage: Juicing is convenient

The convenience of gulping down a glass of juice versus eating a whole fruit is one of the biggest advantages of juicing. However, this counts as a convenience only if you aren't making the juice and cleaning the juicer yourself. When you have to make your own juice, it probably would be easier to simply cut and eat the fruit.

Advantage: Juicing makes it easier for the body to absorb nutrients

Juicing is said to make absorbing nutrients easier for people with digestive diseases such as inflammatory bowel diseases. This is because the process of juicing removes fibers thus giving the digestive system less work to do. Another advantage is eating a whole fruit fills you up more than drinking a glass of juice. This allows you to take in higher amounts of vitamins, minerals, enzymes etc. However, this theory has not been proved.

Disadvantage: Juicing removes fiber

Though the removal of fiber makes it easier for the body to digest fruit juice, this loss of fiber is actually a disadvantage for people with a healthy digestive system. Since the digestive system does not have to work on digesting fibers in juice, the body uses fewer calories in the process. Lesser calories burnt imply lesser weight loss. Since juices are digested faster than whole fruits, hunger is satisfied for shorter periods of time leading to an increased appetite.

Disadvantage: Juicing removes flavonoids

Along with a loss of fiber, flavonoids found in the skin and fruit pulp are also lost in the process of juicing. Flavonoids have been linked to longevity and are best known for their antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties that help prevent a number of cardiovascular diseases. In citrus fruits, the whole fruit is said to have five times the flavonoids as a glass of juice made from them.

To fuse the convenience of juice and the healthiness as whole fruit, use a blender instead of a juicer. This way, you don't lose any fruit pulp and can enjoy a tasty glass of juice.
