Certainly not. Because at this stage of gestation it will be a failure to terminate pregnancy by medicine.

Hello, It's good to reduce weight at right time as many problems are directly related to overweight! Read the following guidelines and implement them in your routine: Management: 1: Drink plenty of water (at least 2-3 l/d) or other calorie-free beverages. 2: Be choosy about nighttime snacks. 3: Enjoy your favorite foods. 4: Have 6 meals per day - 3 main courses and 3 snack meals (snack meals should be healthy). 5: Do regular exercises daily (start with light and later may be little vigorous) . Exercise decreases the stress hormone in your body, burns calories and also increases the blood circulation. 6: Eat seasonal fruits. Fruit helps to satisfy your sweet tooth thanks to its natural sugars, while fresh vegetables help you fill up more quickly. Fruits and vegetables contain fiber to help you feel full quickly. 7: Eat more whole grains and cut simple carbs. Whole wheat bread, oatmeal, whole wheat pasta, sweet potato, and brown rice are all excellent sources of energy and sources of nutrition. 8: Choose lean proteins instead of fatty ones. 9: Cut the salt from your diet. Eating more sodium causes your body to retain water, which can cause you to feel bloated and gain more weight. 10: Don't skip meals.When you skip meals, your body stops breaking down fat and starts breaking down muscle tissue. Muscle tissue burns more calories at rest than other tissues, so you're actually working against your goals 11: Eat at home. Going out to eat makes it too easy to cheat. Food sold at restaurants is commonly much higher in fat, sodium, and other weight-loss killers. 12: Give yourself a treat now and then. If you're attending a party or going out for a special occasion, allow yourself an indulgence. Just make sure that these indulgences don't become daily habits. Medication for obesity & irregular menses: Start taking Schwabe's Phytolacca Berry tablets/ thrice daily 1/2 an hr before the meals for 1 month, Calcarea Carb. 1M/ one dose once daily and Pulsatilla 1M/ one dose once a week - take for 1month. There after revert me back for further guidance. All the best!

Hi, you seemed to have missed your periods coz of tension. Relax! if the pregnancy tests are negative twice, it's negative. However, if another 2 weeks pass by, get an ultrasound of the lower abdo done. Or go to a gynaecologist for the same.

She is 18years old and she wants to know about menstrual bleeding, why does it happens.
When ovulation takes place, it needs sperm to conjugate. When sperm doesn't meet ovum, the endometrium which is ground for conception, is shedded after few days, causing bleeding known as m. C.

Keep Yourself Active Through Out The Day - 6 Tips to follow!

Keep Yourself Active Through Out The Day - 6 Tips to follow!

All of us have our 'good hours' and 'bad hours' each day. While there are the night owls, who are more productive and ideating in the late night hours, there are others who like to be the early bird that literally catches the worm.For For both these categories, there are again hours where the energy wanes. Did you know there are some simple techniques that can help to maintain consistent levels of energy throughout the day?

As much as possible, try and maintain a regular routine in terms of waking up, eating at the same hours as closely as possible, and retiring for the day. The biological clock or circadian rhythm needs to be maintained as much as possible if high productivity is desired. Here are some things that can be completely and easily controlled to keep your energy levels steady through the day.

  • Sleep patterns: Be it going to bed or waking up, try and maintain a pattern that does not vary too much, at least not drastically.  After waking up, a good dose of light in the morning is very helpful. If your work requires you to sleep during the day, ensure you get up into a room that is well and brightly lit.
  • Exercise: Whether is it Saturday or cloudy, a 30 minute workout does magic like nothing else. Get outdoors and be it a walk or a run, cycling or swimming, you will see nothing else boosts your energy as well as this.
  • Nutrition: Reduced carbohydrates, a good dose of protein, ample hydration, adequate fiber intake, and good quantity of dry fruits are somethings to definitely follow. Start with a good breakfast that can boost your energy requirements for the day and eat less as the day goes by.
  • Caffeine: One of the most pleasant experience is to wake up to have a refreshing cup of coffee. While it sounds exotic, the body benefits more if this caffeine is provided sometime later in the day when the energy levels are low.
  • Alcohol: For many, alcohol could be a way of stress busting, but if scientifically looked at, alcohol reduces the quality of sleep and leaves you feeling unrested. It also leaves one tired and irritated. If possible, the alcohol intake should be at least 2 hours before bedtime.
  • Power naps: Highly proven technique, where possible, a power nap of 15 minutes is believed to boost up energy levels significantly.

These are some methods to boost your energy levels. Most of it something completely controllable and changeable by you, all it requires is a conscious effort from you.

If you are bleeding from longer time please get your haemoglobin tested first. Also get her examined by a gynecologist and do ultrasound and pap test. Heavy menses can be treated with 3 months course of medicines.

Most often miscarriage does not repeat in future. However in some cases, it can happen unfortunately. Even in that case, treatment is possible with good outcome.

On the 8 th day my right follicle size s 10*0.9, 0.9*0.9, 0.9*0.9, 0.9*0.7. Is. Ther possible fr pregnancy ET is 7mm.
The follicles develop as days pass growing approximately 2-3 mm per day. So it is still time before you ovulate and why not wait and watch? even in many ladies who have regular ovulation, each cycle differs in the time and day of ovulation, so one can not predict on basis of one follicle and et findings.

I want to be pregnant but not successful. Even trying last 6 months. Please give some advise.
Hello Please dont worry as you have lot of time in your hand so be relax. These are the facts you should know. 1. The egg is released from the ovary midcycle which awaits sperm in the fallopian tube. But it is alive for a very short time. 2. So its really important for you to know these days to keep relations to get a pregnancy. 3. Your wife have to look for these signs midcycle such as a mild increase in the body temperature, thinness of cervical secretions. Etc. This is the time to keep relations. 4. If you provide me the details for the menstrual calender I might let you know these days. 5. The best way to know is to do a transvaginal sonography starting from the tenth day of cycle to see the exact size of the egg and the time it ruptures. Thanks.

We are in a relationship since 5 years and now it is decided by our parents and family to get married next year. In these 5 years I got pregnant 5 times, (i. E. 2 times I miscarried, 2 times I had d&c procedure done @ 3 months & 1 time I had an abortion done @ 5 months through a normal delivery procedure.) I know it's really disgusting what we did:((but all that happened without any prior notice. Means I never get to know that I am pregnant, I was on my regular periods always, no pains no any other symptoms of pregnancy recognized by the time. And that is for every 5 time. Even that last time, I didn't get to know that I was pregnant (i had my periods every 5 months, no pains, no any other symptoms of pregnancy I found, even 1st two months I checked through pregnancy kit, it showed negative result). So I didn't have any idea about getting pregnant n that so with 5 months. By the time of 5 months I felt severe pains in my pelvic muscles n back n for that I visited the gynecologist n then she told me that I am pregnant. N after ultrasound it got totally clear. Doctor made us comfortable and fine again. Thanks to her. Now. We still live together, we have regular sex and again my periods are normal. Sometimes precautions are used, sometimes not. My question is this. That 1. Please tell me if all that happened earlier can affect my future pregnancies? 2. What should we do to avoid regular pregnancies only for 1 more year? 3. Miscarriages, d&c, abortion. What effect will be on my future pregnancies? 4. Is is normal to have sex daily. With or without precautions?

Bone Health - Know How It Is Affected Post Menopause!

MBBS, DGO, MD, Fellowship in Gynae Oncology
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Bone Health - Know How It Is Affected Post Menopause!

Menopause is a condition that marks the end of the menstrual cycle. It is a normal phenomenon that women experience with age. Menopause affects the bone health adversely. Bone health is directly tied to oestrogen, the hormone responsible for reproductive cycles, pain sensitivity. As a woman moves out of her fertile years there is an internal change in the reproductive system and the consequences can be seen and felt all over the body, including the bones.

The years just preceding menopause, with their hormonal fluctuations can set the stage for later health issues like bone weakening. As the oestrogen level drops, the bone density starts to decline which continues for a long period of time. The bone loss can become significant during perimenopause (the decades making up to menopause) and will speed up in the first few years of menopause.

The oestrogen level directly affects the process known as bone remodelling; the constant breakdown and the remodelling of the bone in the skeleton. With less oestrogen in the body cells called osteoclasts are able to absorb bone at a faster rate than osteoblasts (bone-building cells) are able to regenerate new bone. Thus the bone remodelling equation is no longer equal and the bone density continues to decline.

The osteoporosis risk after menopause is a serious one, yet so many women refuse to pay it much attention. Perhaps it’s because the bone damage isn’t visible, or that bone loss continues so gradually for so many years. While the bone loss cannot be completely halted, there is plenty that can be done to slow it down. Here are some ways to take care of your bone health before or after menopause.

  1. Stay active: Adopting an active lifestyle after menopause helps in protecting the bones. It's recommended that adults between 19 to 64 years of age should do moderate to intense activity. This could include activities such as cycling or brisk walking. Sitting for long hours should be avoided. Weight-bearing exercises and resistance exercises are particularly important for improving bone strength and helping to prevent osteoporosis.
  2. A balanced healthy diet: A healthy, balanced diet that includes calcium and vitamin D will help maintain healthy bones after the menopause. Good sources of calcium include green, leafy vegetables (but not spinach), nuts, seeds, dried fruit, tinned fish with the bones in, and dairy products like milk, yoghurt and cheese. Good food sources of vitamin D include oily fish, eggs, and fat spreads or breakfast cereals
  3. Hormone replacement therapy: HRT can be an effective treatment for common menopausal symptoms like night sweats, sleep disturbance and achy joints. It works by replacing oestrogen, which naturally begins to lower post menopause. HRT can also help to maintain bone density and reduce the risk of osteoporosis.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
