A cyst of 3.5 cm is reported in ultrasound of my wife in her ovary, doc asked for CA125 and HE4. We got the report of CA125 ,it's result is 55 ,still waiting for HE4. Does raise in CA125 value means any serious issue?

MBBS, DGO, DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology)
Gynaecologist, Chennai
The increase in CA125 is only marginal.This kind of increase is seen during menstruation and in benign conditions like endometriosis,etc.I don't think you need to worry.Also ,a cyst of 3.5 cm need not get investigated if it is a simple clear cyst.After three cycles you can re check and see whether it is there or not.Functional cysts will disappear after menstruation.IIf it is solid or partly solid then will require investigation

Hello, I got married before 1.3 years. We are planning for a baby since last six month, but no positive results till now. I consult to my Dr. He advised me to take goodova 100 MG from 2nd of my period for 5 days. N he suggested me for an internal sonography on my 11th day. This is helpful to get pregnant.

Ghee - Did You Know It Is Actually Good For You?

Ghee - Did You Know It Is Actually Good For You?

Many people, particularly the younger generation is absolutely against the consumption of ghee. That is because, they are not informed of the health benefits of this golden tinged, flavorful and nutrient-rich butterfat. The consumption of ghee can be traced back to the tradition of Ayurveda in the ancient India, and it was regarded as a sacred, cleansing, medicinal and nutrient rich food. Here are some of the unknown benefits of ghee.

  1. Ghee is free of lactose: Many individuals are not able to digest lactose, which is a sugar found in milk due to the quality of the dietary product, because of the digestive condition of the person concerned. Do you know, a substantial percentage of the total population of the world is lactose intolerant? In case you belong to that group, you can consume ghee without any worries. The traditional cultures were aware of the ways in which the digestibility of any dairy product can be improved. The process of making ghee helps in the removal of lactose and leaves behind the purest form of butter oil.
  2. Ghee is casein free: Casein is the protein component present in milk which causes milk allergies. When the gut flora gets compromised, the consumption of casein can pave the way for an opiate effect on the brain since it is not well digested. When ghee is made, the milk solids comprising of lactose as well as casein float on the top which aids in their easy removal. In the pure Indian cuisine, ghee used does not contain lactose and casein. This is because the process of culturing removes all traces of these components.
  3. Ghee is a stable source of fat when used in cooking: The polyunsaturated oils such as safflower and sunflower oil contain different types of double bonds and which make them least stable for cooking. On the other hand, ghee is primarily a saturated fat which is highly stable for baking and sautéing.
  4. Ghee is a form of saturated fat: There are many pieces of research which prove that consumption of saturated fats does not cause any cardiac disease. So, if you have high blood pressure and cardiac problems, you can freely consume ghee without worrying about aggravating it.
  5. Ghee contains bio-available Vitamin A in abundance: The dairy products derived from ruminants like goats, cows, and sheep which graze on the grass offers an amazing source of fat-soluble vitamins such as Vitamin A. This type of vitamins is mainly stored ion the fat portion which means that the concentration of vitamin in milk is lower than that of the ghee. Vitamin A plays a considerable role in hormone balance, fertility, liver health, and stamina.

Hence, to reap these benefits, you should consider consuming little amounts of ghee every day. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ayurveda.

I had 2times abortion? After abortion, Now my body also very fat and my skin also scratch, doctors said no relationship till three months, I already followed, there is chance to become pregnant again?

Your doctor is right. Your present problems have no relation to abortions. Get a tube test done hsg where a dye is injected through mouth of uterus and x ray pictures are taken if tubes are open then dye is spilled and if tubes are partially closed due to smug dye is injected with a little force and tubes get opened up. This test is diagnostic and therapeutic. Pregnancy rate after test is very high.

Hi I am from tirupati. My sister has newly gave birth to a baby. The baby born on 17-09-2015. Can you suggest me some healthy foods for the mother?

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
Focus on eating whole grains and cereals, legumes, fresh fruits and vegetables. And go for foods that provide plenty of protein, calcium, and iron (and, as always, an occasional treat is fine). Traditionally, breastfeeding mums are given a lot of dried fruit, ghee and sugar. These high calorie foods usually were meant to supplement the khichdi diet that mums traditionally follow after birth. If you are eating normal food, you can leave out the extra ghee and sugar. Dried fruits are extremely healthy and used in most traditional confinement foods. Try having them without the ghee and sugar by putting them in your porridge (dalia) for example or in some kheer. This way your relatives will be happy that you are eating the traditional ingredients but you will not be loaded with the high calories. If you must eat the laddoos or panjiri you can reduce the calorie count by eating smaller portions. Some recipes could work well with lesser quantities of ghee and for others you could use a healthier alternative such as canola oil. If you are used to having aerated drinks to quench your thirst it is best to avoid these while breastfeeding. They contain just empty calories and no nutrition. You could instead substitute it with healthier drinks such as lassi, coconut water, buttermilk (chhaach), fresh fruit and vegetable juices or nimbu pani.

Do pregnancy test at laboratory. Sometimes upt home kit shows false negative result. Pregnancy test may be show negative result in initial days. So do urine pregnancy test from laboratory. If it shows negative result sonography will decide.

I had sex on November but after that from November to February I was having normal period. My last date for period was 13th feb but in march its 17 but I do not have period till now. What to do to get periods on time? And is there any chance that I am pregnant?

BHMS, MD - Homeopathy
Homeopath, Navi Mumbai
There is hardly any chance of pregnancy. Day 12-18 of a regular menstrual cycle are fertile, that means chances of getting pregnant are high. Sometimes its ok if there is a delay, coz there r so many causes of irregular menses like anaemia, stress, inadequate sleep etc. But if it on and off then you need a treatment.

Irrespective of whether your pregnancy test tests comes out positive or negative, I would optimize your Thyroids and other relevant hormones and continue treatment right through pregnancy. I would also like to rule out Autoimmune Thyroiditis. These are important to improve your chances of conceiving and preserving pregnancy.

If a “normal” person is getting ready to walk through a doorway and someone walks up behind them and attempts to shove them through that doorway, most people will grab the sides of that doorway and it will be very difficult to get them through the doorway.   Even if they originally wanted to go through the doorway.   This is human nature.   But if you stand next to the individual and talk about your previous journey through the doorway, the individual will cross into the next room without a problem. This aspect of human nature is even more true with drug addicts and alcoholics that are in early recovery.

Pain during menses is a normal phenomena. Only on the first day and bearable pain is not ang cause for concern. Take treatment only if the pain is too much and unbearable and affecting your daily life activities. You can use hot water bag on the tummy for relief. Remember to drink lot of water during menses

Pregnancy is possible only on one day of cycle, day of ovulation when ovum is released from ovary of woman. That is why couple should have 12 to 24 cycles of unprotected sex around time of ovulation before going to Gynecologist or infertility specialist for further evaluation and advise.

Figs have a higher overall mineral profile than any other common fruit or vegetable. They are particularly high in calcium, iron, potassium, and zinc, key nutrients for a healthy pregnancy. 2. The high potassium content of figs may help to control blood pressure and therefore, the hypertension associated with preeclampsia, a dangerous pregnancy condition. 3. The mineral content of figs closely resembles that of human breast milk! 4. Figs have the highest fiber content of any common fruit. Rich in both insoluble and soluble fiber, figs really help to mitigate the constipation so common during pregnancy. 5. Figs contain a proteolytic enzyme that also aids in digestion, which is naturally slowed during pregnancy. 6. Figs are highly alkaline, and therefore alkalizing, which has been shown to help curb cravings. This may help control those less-than-healthy urges that can sabotage a healthy pregnancy diet. 7. Figs are high in vitamin B6, which has long been thought to be beneficial in alleviating morning sickness. 8. Even the leaves of figs are therapeutic: ingesting them has been shown to reduce and even eliminate the need for insulin in diabetic patients. Therefore, ingesting them may help to control or avoid a case of gestational diabetes. Furthermore, this ability to balance blood sugar levels should help to relieve a whole host of symptoms – from morning sickness to mood swings. 9. Dried figs contain significant amounts of Omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential to the optimal development of the fetus. Consuming ample Omega-3’s during pregnancy is also associated with a lower incidence of pre-term labor and premature delivery. 10. Psoralens, a chemical found in figs, has been used to treat many skin pigmentation problems and may be beneficial in preventing melasma, the “mask of pregnancy”. So now that you’re convinced of the amazing nutritional power of figs…what are the best ways to eat them? - See more at: http://www.bodyenlightenment.me/blog/2008/08/pregnant-women-get-figgy-with-it/#sthash.Me8YBuST.dpuf
