For conception sexual intercourse should be done within fertile period.In a 28 day cycle, usually the fertile period is from day 8-day 18. In a 28 day cycle ovulation takes place on 14th day. Ovulation takes place 14 days before the next period. So 3-4 days proceeding and post the day of ovulation are the most fertile. After 1 years of trying for conception if still not conceived, male and female both need to be investigated.

5 Ways To Lose Weight With Endermology

5 Ways To Lose Weight With Endermology

Fat and cellulite though are different forms of the fat cells must be eliminated from the body when in excess so that you can lead a better and healthier life. While removal of deep tissue fat which resides underneath skin is possible with many therapies, the cellulite which resides loosely adhered to the skin just under it, is stubborn and tough to remove. That is why effective treatment methods like Endermology have been brought into practice since the 1980s which helps in weight loss as well as inch loss. This is the first cellulite and fat loss treatment, which has been approved by the FDA too.

This is a non invasive treatment, and is a painless and permanent solution against cellulite wherein no scarring or surgery is done. To prepare the body for the treatment, one must follow the below 5 methods, which will let the effect of the weight loss/fat loss treatment to be more visible and faster.

  1. Get cellulite treatment: The cellulite removal endermologic treatment is a special treatment, which is done with the help of two rollers and a vacuum suction machine. The rollers roll or knead the skin and create a suction force in the loose skin superficially. This makes the fat cells in the body under the skin, release the cellulite which is very effective for belly weight loss. The warmth from the treatment initiates lymphatic flow, and good blood circulation in the body, thus increasing fat metabolism.
  2. Maintain regularity of treatment: The treatment has a schedule, and the best results are obtained only when you maintain regularity. You cannot skip the sessions. 14-28 weight loss/fat loss sessions are required initially within 1-2 weeks. This has to be done as suggested by the health and treatment expert. From the 6th session onwards, fat loss results will start to get visible gradually.
  3. Stay hydrated for the treatment: It's a mandate that you keep hydration levels in the body optimum to receive full benefits from the Endermology treatment. Ideally, 5 cups of water intake is must before you start a session.
  4. HIFU Treatment- the next level: High-Intensity Focalized Ultrasound is the next level of treatment, wherein the ultrasound waves are targeted on the skin areas at thighs, abdomen, waist, hips, buttocks, etc., which contain cellulite. This ruptures the deep-laid fat cells, and then the fat is induced to get drained through the lymphatic system further enhancing the weight loss.
  5. Maintain healthy lifestyle and diet: A healthy lifestyle with no liquor and smoking, no late nights or drug abuse, and no stress, etc. is needed. Diet has to be a low calorie, balanced diet, and all junk and oily food filled with unsaturated fats must be avoided. Light exercises or moderate to heavy as per the capacity of the body must be encouraged to see the effects of Endermology to become permanent.

Dear lybrate user, pcod (polycystic ovarian disease) is a disese of hormonal imbalance. Due to imbalanace in the ladies hormones you get small multiple nodules in the ovaries which is the main cause of infertility. It is genrally shown in fatty ladies. Due to excessive fat your digestive system and blood purify sysytem leads to hormonal imbalance. For that. Avoid fast food, junk food, oily food, soicy food, rice, potato, etc heavy food. Take easily digestible food like green leafy vegetables etc. Drink at least 3 litres of water in a day. Regular do yogasana /pranayama / deep breathing exercise etc to reduce stress and anger. This is the most necessary in this case. You must try to manage stress and anger. 100 steps walking immidiately after meal. Take dinner 2 hours before sleeping time. Take enough sleep. Regular walking for an hour 5 days in a week. You must try your best to reduce your weight. Take. Breakfast = 7 am to 8 am lunch = 12 noon to 1 pm dinner = 8 pm to 9 pm. Pcod is a such life style disease. Now a days obesity and stress increase the numbers of patients of this disease. So it is necessary for you follow above all instructions.

How do I know my girlfriend is a virgin? Her hymen didn't break when we had sex. And she didn't seem to enjoy it that much. She just had a blank expression on her face while I was entering her. How do I know if I was her first?

There is no way to test virginity. Some women have a loose stretchable hymen so while having first sex they may not have severe pain or bleding, even if they are virgins. So trust your wife to be a virgin and get over this hang up about'blank expression' etc. Most women do not enjoy the sex esp on the first time it is done. So do not go after her expression as her measure of her enjoyment. Fear. Pain and anxiety can prevent anyone from enjoying sexual feelings too.
