There can be many reason for paint/ itching. Infection being the most common. Firstly you should get to know the reason for itching. Doctor -gynaecologist is the best person to help you in this situation. Doctor has surely got the solution to your problem. To prevent vaginal irritation and infection, there are several steps you can take at home. Avoid using feminine hygiene products, as these can cause irritation. Avoid scented soaps, lotions, and bubble baths. When exercising or swimming, change out of wet or damp clothing immediately afterward. Wear cotton underwear, which is breathable and will keep you dry. If you are diabetic, take steps to control your blood sugar.

Three possibilities: 1. It might be pre-menstrual spotting, which means your periods will begin soon. 2. Ectopic pregnancy may present in this way, get a pregnancy test and see your Gynaec 3. If you have used I-pill, this kind of bleeding may happen.

Gud quation lybrate-user ji. See gym can have some adverse effect if you do not follow it properly. Wht I think you do not need to walk daily. 20 mins walk ulternate day at a speed of 5 to 6 km/ hr wil not harm your knees. And help your heart. You wil not get diabetes or bp. Bt see that you do not use inclination mode. If you want to use inclination you can reduce the speed to 4 to 5 km/ hr and duration 10 min. On other days you can do cycling for 20 mins.

Teratozoospermia is a defect in shape and function of sperms. It causes difficulty in conceiving. However it can be resolved by intracytoplasmic sperm injection into the egg. Since the cause of teratozoopspernia is not exactly known, there is no specific treatment for it. Following are few suggestions - avoid smoking, alcohol, preservatives in food - avoid raw meat, stale food - eat fresh fruits after washing adequately - exercise daily - maintain your weight - avoid stress, have a restful sleep at night.

Is the weight is one of the causes for irregular menses and blood flow is not clear it like blackish type.

BHMS
Homeopath
Ask Free Question
Is the weight is one of the causes for irregular menses and blood flow is not clear it like blackish type.
Yes, most of the over weight women faces irregular menses. The reason being, more weight causes increased secretion of s. Testosterone in the body which causes irregular menses. Losing a considerable amount of weight can cause the period to become scanty, heavy, shorter or longer than normal. It may also cause a woman to suffer from an imbalance in hormones, which can directly cause the irregularity. This is a normal color change. It happens when the blood is older and not being expelled from the body quickly.

5 Energy - Boosting Foods to Try

In our day to day lifestyle, it has become very difficult to maintain routine and habits to the optimal level. But in order to, function efficiently and to put your body in full functioning capacity, here are five energy boosting foods to try: 

  1. Honey: This natural sweetener is extremely low on the glycemic index and acts as muscle fuel, thus helping you to replenish the muscles during and post exercising. It is literally nature's counterpart to an energy drink that can be added to tea, water or even your yoghurt. 
  2. Banana: One of the most popular and well loved energy foods, bananas being mostly composed of sugars, can provide a head-on energy boost. 
  3. Nuts: They are extremely important in converting sugar into energy. Also, they are extremely handy to munch on when feeling lethargic or low in energy. Nuts like almonds, cashew nuts or hazelnuts are rich in magnesium and help to keep blood sugar levels even and supply protein to keep the hunger away. 
  4. Cardamom: This popular spice is well known to help boost energy by promoting blood flow. Indulge in a cardamom laden curry or a tea infused with cardamom to combat low energy levels. 
  5. Apples: Since they take much longer to digest in comparison to other fruits, these beautiful fruits provide a more prolonged energy boost. Being high in fiber, they're easy to carry around and munch on. 

This is not an exhaustive list, and there are several more where they came from. Pick out the food items that are easily available for you and keep them at hand to pick you up when you function on low energy levels.

Awake, arise and walk:)


Exercise burns calories. In the case of walking the calories you burn depend much more on the distance you cover and your body weight than on your speed.

This table shows calories burned per mile of walking for people of varying weights:

Your weight approximate calories per mile (1.6 k)
54 kg 85
63 kg 95
72 kg 105
82 kg 115
90 kg 125

People who walk gain significantly less weight gain than those who didn't, the more walking, the less weight gain. And the benefit was greatest in the heaviest individuals.

It takes some time for tissues to go back to normal shape. Its just 4 mths since delivery. Do walking and light exercises. Start crunches and gyming after 3 months. It will be fine. Also avoid oily things and fast food like pizza burger french fries in diet.
