Recently my wife got conceived (38 days) and we aborted as we already have 2 kids by tables (not done by D&C). First 3 days bleeding was more and then got reduced. Now small drops are coming and doctor said it will get controlled shortly. In this case, when can we start our intercourses again? Do we need to postpone for sometimes? Pls advise.

Hello, it would be wise to do a pregnancy test and see. Although you ve had a normal period after the episode itz less likely but confirming it with a test would be appropriate.

It can develop but needs years. If uterus and ovaries are present and and small compare to age, it will take time years to develop. Say about 10-15 years. I have seen this type of case, and the women develop the uters and also have child. And the age of 35yeras.

the yes and no answer depends on individual's definition of virginity. Because the word can mean different thing to different people. Some defines it as never having intercourse with a partner. Which of course, that is the most accurate definition of virginity. If that's your own definition, then, the answer to the question above is" no" you can't lose your virginity without having sexual intercourse. But some still calls a girl virgin, until she looses her" hymen" the hymen is a thin piece of tissue (flesh) that partially covers the opening of the vagina. It is an elastic skin that could stretch back and forth. Yet, this hymen could tear even without having sex.

Pain during menstruation is called as dysmenorrhoea. If you r suffering from this since long time and if it is not controlled by meftal spas and if you have to stay at home during menses because of pain, then you should get sonography done to find out the cause. It could be ovarian cyst or endometriosis or fibroid also.

Dear lybrate-user Knowing your PCOS status it is expected that you might be having irregular / prolonged periods. It is advisable that you should get your pregnancy confirmed by urine test after 7-10 days overdue of your periods. Slight temperature changes do occur during menstrual cycle. You must continue your medication for PCOS. Final confirmation is ultimately by "Ultrasound" after you get urinary pregnancy test positive. Wish you luck.

Broccoli: One of the Biggest Cancer Fighting Foods

Broccoli: One of the Biggest Cancer Fighting Foods

The news of cancer will always hit you hard and you must begin to steel yourself for the battle ahead. It is immensely important to maintain a healthy diet throughout the phase. There is a certain power in fresh produce that bring about optimal health. Here, we will discuss the magic vegetable, broccoli and its several benefits to help fight cancer.

Broccoli is known to have the power to bust cancer. But how is it so? Part of the cruciferous vegetable family, broccoli contains sulforaphane, which helps boost the secretion of enzymes that help to protect cells from harmful cancer causing chemicals. It is one of the most powerful anti carcinogens that can be found in food. Broccoli has a powerful type of this sulforaphane that gives its exceptional cancer fighting abilities. It is also helps to cut down the cancer causing elements in the air around you, thus helping to prevent the risk of throat cancer.

But what is important is that we should try to prevent cancer rather than fighting it later. A good diet of the right nutrients can do the trick. There have been thousands of studies as to the importance of cruciferous vegetables to fight cancer, broccoli being one of the most vital. It has been known to significantly reduce the risk of cancer and is like a natural dose of chemotherapy and hence a 'superfood'. This sort of natural chemoprevention is a natural and cheap way out of the expensive chemotherapy usually used.

Broccoli also contains indole compounds that are plant chemicals that change the metabolism of estrogen and hence decreasing the risk of breast cancer. It has been seen that those who eat more portions of broccoli in a week, are known to be less prone to prostate cancer. If you can eat only half a cup of broccoli a day, you can protect yourself from colon, lung, stomach, and rectum cancer.

More and more scientific trials are being conducted so as to ascertain how exactly and to what extent broccoli is useful in not only preventing cancer, but also curing it. Rest assured, be sure to add some broccoli to your diet from today!

I had sex on 19 feb. 2 times my wife is pregnant. Is there any method to calculate pregnancy? my wife lmp is 10 feb. My edd is 21 nov 2015. Please tell is it possible or not?

MBBS, DGO (cal)
General Physician,
Approximately 9 calender month and 7 days to be added with the first date of the last menstrual period to find the expected date of delivery (not your edd as you have written, it is your wife's edd). Which is roughly 280 days. If her first date of lmp is 10th feb 2015 her edd comes to 17th nov 2015- 15 days. Usg can give this information more accurately in expert's hand.

Hi, I had a sex with a girl 8-8.5 years ago and right now I am 33 years old and happily married. I had a 4.5 year old son. I was remembering something and suddenly this thing comes to my mind that I had a paid sex 8 years back. I stressed with a thing that I might get some disease from this like hiv etc. I am feeling myself fit and fine right now. I have seen my wife pregnancy 4-4.5 year old reports and she was hiv negative at that point. I didn't have any sex with anyone except my wife from last 8-9 years. Is it a psychological issue which is harming me and I am taking unnecessary stress.

Yes dear Lybrate user. It is a psychological problem. The only way to get out of this problem is to get your blood checked for HIV antibodies. You can get it done in any GH or standardized clinical labs in your nearby location. Otherwise this thought will always be torturing you.

Make Sure to Eat Enough Protein

MBBS, FIAGES-MInimal Access Surgery
General Surgeon, Kota
Make Sure to Eat Enough Protein
  • Eating enough protein is incredibly important, and many experts believe that the recommended daily intake is too low.
  • Protein is particularly important for weight loss, and works via several different mechanisms.
  • A high protein intake can boost metabolism significantly, while making you feel so full that you automatically eat fewer calories. It can also cut cravings and reduce the desire for late-night snacking.
  • Eating plenty of protein has also been shown to lower blood sugar and blood pressure levels.

Obesity reduces life expectancy

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Obesity reduces life expectancy
Obesity in adulthood is associated with a striking reduction in life expectancy for both men and women. Among 3457 subjects in the Framingham Study, done in the United States, those who were obese (Body Mass Index or BMI ≥30 kg/m2 at age 40 years lived 6 to 7 years less than those who were not (BMI ≤24.9 kg/m2). Those who were overweight (BMI 25 to 29.9 km/m2) at age 40 years lived about 3 years less, and those who were both obese and smoked lived 13 to 14 years less than normal–weight nonsmokers. The steady rise in life expectancy during the past two centuries may come to an end because of the increasing prevalence of obesity. Being overweight during adolescence also increase the risk of premature death as an adult. The analysis of Nurses’ Health Study has shown the risk of premature death increases with higher BMIs at age 18 years. For a BMI at age 18 of 18.5 to 21.9, 22 to 24.9, 25 to 29.9, and ≥30 kg/m2, the hazard ratio for premature death were 0.98, 1.18, 1.66, and 2.79, respectively.

A prospective study from the United States, at National Cancer Institute, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, valuated the relationship between BMI and risk of death over a maximum follow–up period of 10 years among over 500,000 men and women aged 50 to 71 years. Among the subset of individuals 50 years of age (when prevalence of chronic disease is low) who had never smoked, an increased risk of death was associated with being either overweight (20 to 50 percent increase in those between 26.5 to 29.9 kg/m2) or obese (two– to over threefold increase in those ≥30 kg/m2).

Overweight and obesity, when analyzed together, is associated with increased mortality from diabetes and kidney disease. Obesity, when analyzed alone, is associated with increased cardiac mortality and cancers considered to be obesity–related (colon, breast, esophageal, uterine, ovarian, kidney, and pancreatic cancer), but not with mortality from other cancers or non–cardiac mortality.

There are some recent studies which showed that obese people live longer. Overweight was shown to be associated with reduced mortality from non cancer, non–cardiovascular causes, but not with cancer or cardiovascular mortality. In them being underweight was associated with increased mortality from non cancer and non–cardiac causes, but not cancer and cardiac CVD causes. Obesity and increased central fat are associated with increased morbidity in addition to mortality. Overweight and obese individuals have a higher relative risk of hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, and diabetes mellitus compared with normal weight individuals. The risk of hypertension and diabetes increases with increasing BMI.

In the Nurses’ Health and the Health Professionals studies, the risk of developing a chronic disease (gallstones, hypertension, heart disease, colon cancer and stroke (in men only)) increased with increasing BMI, even in those in the upper half of the healthy weight range (BMI 22.0 to 24.9 kg/m2). Obesity is measured by using a measurement called BMI, which is calculated by dividing a person’s weight in kilograms by the square of their height in meters.

A BMI of 18.5 to 23 is considered normal (Asians). One below 18.5 is considered underweight and 25 or above is considered obese.

It may happen after intercourse, excercise or squatting or in a pathological condition of a connection betwwn colon & vagina as result of child birth, radiation or cancer.

The main culprit in non-pathological condition is weakness of pelvic floor.

"Kegel" exercise may help as well as vaginal pessary

I am 6 weeks pregnant now i am having stomach pain and back pain like cramps too much please help.
In most cases, mild tummy cramps are a normal part of early pregnancy. They're usually linked to the normal physical changes your body goes through as it gears up for carrying your baby. Some women get cramps with a little bleeding when the embryo implants itself into the wall of the womb.
