How I pregnant in which periods flow and day. Last year I had a DnC. So please tell me how I get pregnant.

You're most likely to get pregnant if you have sex within a day or so of ovulation (releasing an egg from the ovary). This is usually about 14 days after the first day of your last period, if your cycle is around 28 days long.

My mother has a lump in her left chest since one year ,could you suggest what kind of test should be done to know weather it is normal or any other problem. And recently she has undergone a gynaecological surgery for uterus removal just one week before.

You should show your mother to the same gyane or a surgeon to consult for the lump. Clinical examination asking with mamography and pathological examination (fnac) can diagnose upto 99% cases.

Is it ok to take flax seeds powder after lunch n dinner for height gain? I hope it will not make me fat?

Diploma in Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
Flax seeds are known to bring down cholesterol , I have no idea whether they lead to increase in height . Take high protein diet , drink lots of toned milk and milk products like curds and lassi, do stretching exercises. Girls do gain height after 19 years , do not follow the data that shows girls stop growing tall after they get their periods.

If a woman is two months pregnant, then what should she not eat and how can she take care of her pregnancy and what should she do for her health?

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
The first trimester of your pregnancy is the most important phase. During this phase your body undergoes various physiological and psychological changes and your baby’s major organ developments also happen simultaneously. You need to exercise certain precautions during the first trimester to avoid any serious health complications. What you do during the initial three months defines the health and wellness of your baby and that of yours too. Here are things that you should do during this trimester to ensure a smooth ride ahead. Things to do during your first trimester: • Get your required number of calories from all food groups, not just fat! Include variety of foods in the diet like whole grains, pulses, legumes and nuts. Meat, poultry, eggs and fish also provide protein. Make sure you get your calcium from milk or other food. Take 600 ml of milk or milk products every day for the calcium content. Eating during pregnancy • Get your dose of vitamin D through food like egg yolks, tuna, salmon, fortified milk, fish liver oil, or through exposure to sunlight. • Increase your intake of omega-3 fatty acids. They are necessary for the development of your baby’s brain, nerve and eye. • Take iron and folic acid supplements as prescribed by your doctor. It is important during the pre-conception and early pregnancy phase because this is when the foetus develops spine and nerve cells. • Eat frequent, smaller meals. The baby needs to be fed constantly so eat every two to three hours. • Gain weight gradually. For the optimal growth of your baby you should gain around 0.5- 2 kg in the first trimester. Get some exercise. Regular gentle exercise can help ease or prevent back pain, boost your energy, build stamina and help you prepare for the physical changes of labour and delivery. • Don’t miss your visits to the doctor. Your prenatal check-ups are your window into the womb and they help detect any issues early and can be corrected in most cases. • Increase your fluid intake. Blood volume needs to increase during pregnancy to facilitate oxygen and nutrient delivery to both you and your baby. • Get lots of sleep. Hormonal changes also make you feel worn out. So make it a point to get few naps whenever possible. • Cut down on caffeine. Large amounts of caffeine consumption and an increased risk of miscarriage have been linked in some studies. Things to avoid on your first trimester • Don’t take any medication unless necessary. Medicines taken by you can cross the placenta and enter the bloodstream of your baby. Hence it’s best to know the safety of any medications you’re taking during pregnancy – especially in the first trimester. • Don’t be too adventurous with food. Foods to be avoided during pregnancy include raw/undercooked meat, soft cheese, seafood and raw eggs. They could be possible sources of harmful bacteria and parasite. Reduce your exposure to environmental pollutants. According to a study, women exposed to elevated levels of ozone air pollution (smog) in the first three months of pregnancy may be at increased risk for complications such as preeclampsia and premature birth. • Quit smoking. Passive and active smoking during pregnancy increases the risk of health and behavioural problems in the baby and is linked to infant mortality. • Don’t drink alcohol. Alcohol can cross the placenta and reach your baby’s bloodstream. Excessive drinking impairs the mental and physical development of your baby, in what is known as foetal alcohol syndrome. Don’t get stressed, depressed. High levels of stress can affect the unborn baby’s health and increase your chances of miscarriage. • Don’t go on diet while you’re pregnant. You may end up with deficiency of iron, folic acid, vitamins and minerals which can potentially harm you and your baby. • Don’t use hot tubs/ sauna. They can raise your core body temperature which can cause dehydration and threaten the developing baby.

I had been to gynecologist for having scanty periods... I had my periods on 4th dec,as my regular menstral cycle but flow was less.i had sexual intercourse wid my partner. Doc said to take a pelvic scan and in report it came that my endometri is thicker i.e 15mm. And i had gone for pregnancy test on 8th dec,the result was negative. Doc suggested me to take duphastron for 10 Days. So my query is that why we hav to take that tablet and will it helps in having pregnancy?

MBBS, MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, FMAS, DMAS

Hello, The tablet is to allow maturation of the endometrium into secretory phase and promote menses after that if you are not pregnant. The withdrawal shall be initiated after stoppage of duphaston.

Hi. I am 24 years old. Ever since I got my 1st period (I.e at the age of 14). My periods wer irregular. I would hardly get them monthly. The problem persisted for years. Last year I took up yoga, brisk walking and had a very healthy diet free of junk and sugar and white rice. I lost weight considerably, Became flexible and my periods became very regular. It would not even get delayed by a day also. I had a blood test in Aug 2015 that showed negative thyroid. And a scan in Sept 2015 that showed polycystic appearing ovaries (I dint do any further testing or treatments for this ). And from Dec 2015 for almost 9 months my periods wer regular but they became very scanty. Lasting only 3 days instead of 5 with light bleeding. Now due my busy schedule I stopped yoga walking and can not really focus on good diet since last 2 months and I haven't got my period since 2 months. I went to a gynecologist she said this is Pcos and once I start with my healthy lifestyle again and lose 5 more kgs it ll help me a lot. Along with this since a Month I have the following problems. 1. Lower back pain not very severe though 2. Vaginal dryness and itching. There is no lubrication or discharge. 3. Mild acne on forehead I will again visit a gyno and get detailed tests done and will restore my food habits and start with yoga asap again. But I have question that is really bothering me. I just badly need an answer to this. I read about pre-menopause and pre mature ovarian failure on the net. The symptoms are totally same! I asked a classmate about this and she said its true bcuz her mother got menopause at 39. I am very scared. Is this true? Do I have menopause? The other day I felt some kind of warmth in my upper back and I sweat a bit from palms n feet is this hot flash? Or is it my psychology becoz I have been obsessing abt menopause ever since I read all that. I know only tests can confirm all this and only then a doctor can give an opinion but just based on your experience is it possible to have menopause at 24? I don't drink smoke other wise healthy not sexually active If a doc could confirm on this I 'll really be relived. Thank you.

General Physician, Mumbai
You will get your menopause after 20 more years and for now Apart from taking symptomatic treatment I will suggest you to take injection vitcofol 2cc intramuscularly every alternate days for five pricks over the buttocks through a health professional

Hello doctor 6 weeks ago I got chickenpox. After 2 to 4 days of chicken pox 2 white pimple on head of penis. It was there for 2 days and cured automatically. Is that chickenpox or any STD. Because I received a body massage and hand job from girl. After one month tested for herpes HIV and vdrl. All results came negative. Is that chicken pox or STD. Can I get herpes by only hand job. No other sexual encounter I didn't even touch her. please help me doctor am worried.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Herpes can spread by having vaginal, anal, or oral sex with someone who has the disease. Hand job is unlikely source of infection unless she touched her saliva or genital area just before hand job. Fluids found in a herpes sore carry the virus, and contact with those fluids can cause infection. You can also get herpes from an infected sex partner who does not have a visible sore or who may not know he or she is infected because the virus can be released through your skin and spread the infection to your sex partner. What you described is the most likely description of herpes. Tests for herpes can come negative even if you have herpes.

i am Suffering from pcos since 5 months months now. Planning for baby since jan 2016 but not succeed yet. I am obese. Periods are happening every month but getting delayed by 5-10 days every month. What is pancha karma and how it is done.

It is better that you try to lose few kilos first. You can do that by regular exercise. Don't try any changes in diet. Rather try to eat healthy.i If nothing works then you can definitely try Homeopathy which will be safest.

Hi I am 31 years female. I have been married since 9 years n I have also a son of 8 years old. I had been a victim of depression 4 years back after my father's death. That time I decided not to think about another child because I was not even able to take care of my son at that time. I used to have anxiety attacks at that time. But after that with the passage of time it got cured. I started to plan for my next issue 1 and half years back coz my husband wants another baby. My problem is that I could not decide whether I should go for this or not. Agr m one side sochti hu to I want another child on the other hand my mind starts to think ki mra beta ab bda ho gya hai n age difference kafi rhega n oll. I don't know what I exactly want. M second child chahti bi hu n taking treatment for this bt kabi kabhi mind opposite chlta hai. Ek bar mne conceive kr bi liya tha bt mind gets disturbed ki I should abort and all. Unfortunately I miscarried dat tym. Iske bad bi I am taking treatment bt my mind is nt fixed in fact mra mind muje khi ni chodta on one side khta hai ki second issue hona chaiye go 4 dis n on the second hand khta hai ki beta bda ho gya don't go for this. I am very confused. Is again I have been becoming victim of depression. What should I do I can't share my problem with any one. please help me. Plz.

Dear lybrate-user, due to present trends one child is not good in society every family they need two children, because single child they will be all alone, they con't share their emotions to anybody (fight, love, belonging) if brother or sister is there they can play together and share emotions each other many times single children are becoming psychos in present society two children is better than one.

Actually I did ovulating test with the help of ovulation kit on May 10th on my 13th day the result is positive. Today I did it again with the ovulation kit the result is also positive. It means I'm pregnant or not.

Advanced Aesthetics
Ayurveda, Gulbarga
u r not pregnent u do ovulation kit that shows ur egg r produced and now u try for baby in this time period Your egg only survives for between 12 hours and 24 hours if it is not fertilised. There's only a small window each month during which you can conceive, typically no longer than about six days. This time leading up to ovulation is when you are most fertile (your fertile window).  It's possible for sperm to survive inside you for up to about seven days. But the healthiest sperm, with the best ability to swim in a straight line (motility), result from your partner ejaculating every three days to four days ideally, given that you're trying for a baby, when you are having sex!  Most conceptions result from having sex in the two days leading up to ovulation so to increase your chance of pregnancy, you need to ensure that you have sex at this time. An easy way to do this, is to try to have sex a couple of times a week throughout your cycle.

6 Best Homeopathy Remedies To Cure Anemia!

6 Best Homeopathy Remedies To Cure Anemia!

In this fast-moving world, everyone is so busy that it's hard to take self-care. People give less importance to what they eat, when they sleep and so on. Conditions such as anaemia have become very common, and we still neglect knowingly and unknowingly. You tend to find quick alternatives. Homoeopathy is the alternative for such a condition.

Understand Anemia: If hemoglobin (that carries oxygen throughout the body) count is less in red blood cells, such condition is known as anaemia. Body doesn't receive enough oxygen, thereby leading to weakness and fatigue. Anaemia can affect all age groups; from kids to elders.

Apart from poor diet, certain anaemic conditions could be hereditary, which are beyond one's control. Women who are of childbearing age tend to be anaemic due to menstruation.

Causes and Types:

  • Accidental blood loss, child birth or medical conditions such as gastric ulcer lead to haemorrhage, which ultimately lead to anaemia.
  • Iron deficiency during pregnancy, poor diet or haemorrhage may cause anaemia
  • Megaloblastic anaemia occurs due to deficiency of Vitamin B12 (Folic Acid).
  • Pernicious anaemia occurs due to autoimmune disorder. One is unable to absorb Vitamin B12 adequately.
  • Hemolytic anaemia is caused to destruction of red blood cells during ill health conditions such as in malaria or due to irregular red blood cells such as in Sickle-Cell Anemia.
  • In a condition where haemoglobin production is impaired due to hereditary disorder, it is called Thallasemia.

Homeopathic Remedy:
There are numerous homeopathic treatments available for anaemia.

  1. Aletris Farinosa is mainly given to women who are extremely weak and feel tired. Such patients always feel tired with minimal energy levels. Vertigo and fainting are quite common. Facial skin looks pale.
  2. China is the best for one who experiences excessive bleeding. Bleeding could be due to traumatic injury, periods and so on. The person is usually tired and faints quite often. China is used to control haemorrhage as well as improves blood quantity after bleeding episodes.
  3. Cinchona also helps to treat anaemia due to blood loss.
  4. Ferrum Metallicum is considered to be the best homeopathic medicine for anaemia.
  5. Natrum Mur helps to treat anaemia due to grief. Reasons could be personal tragedy or any other circumstance. The condition worsens due to heat. One tends to ingest more of salt content food.
  6. Nit-acid-One is given to anaemic persons who have a desire to eat chalk, paper and earth.

Besides these treatments, eat iron-rich food and have a regular blood check-up at least once in six months. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a homeopath.
