I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend on 14th april and had an ipill the same day. My period cycle begins on 5th of every month. I was very regular. I had some bleeding after consuming the ipill for 2-3 days. Today is the 17th and I haven't had any periods since the whole month. I took 2 pregnancy tests but they were both negative. Is there a possibility of me being pregnant? I have sore breasts and I'm very tensed. Please suggest what should I do?
I am 28 year old unmarried suffering from pcos. I have irregular menses with a gap of one and half month. I tried allopathy but it had temporary results. So I decided to start ayurveda and home remedies. I am consuming methi, fennel seeds, kalonji, chia seeds daily to regularise my menses. I am also consuming ashokarishta and lohasava daily. Planning to add rajah pravartani vati and shila sindoor in my diet. Please advise if I am consuming rights things for pcos and will they give me positive results in future. And should I consume rajah pravartani and shila sindoor daily even during periods. If so how many months should I take them?
Any surgery that requires an incision will involve sutures or staples as the last step of the procedure. This helps close the incision and keep out infections. Taking care of your stitches can help limit scarring and discomfort and speed up the healing process. Here are a few things to keep in mind.
- Keep it clean and dry: For the first few days, use a washed wet cloth to clean the incision site. After a few days, you may start washing the area with soap and water unless advised else wise by your doctor. Ensure that you dry the skin thoroughly after washing it. Avoid baths that involve soaking the area in water. Also, avoid swimming. Do not use any powders, lotions, creams, deodorants etc on the wound site.
- Look out for signs of infections: Avoid activities that may involve exposing your wound to dirty water, chemicals, dust etc. This increases your risk of infections. Also look out for signs f infections such as redness, swelling, pus or bleeding, fever or increased pain from the wound. In case you notice such signs, consult your doctor at the earliest.
- Do not scratch: As it heals, your skin is likely to turn itchy. However, refrain from scratching so as to reduce chances of infections. Do not try and pull away from the scab but let it fall off on its own. This will also help limit scarring.
- Limit contact: Avoid wearing tight clothes or anything that sticks to the skin while your wound is healing. Instead have plenty of loose, comfortable clothes easily accessible. Also, do not take part in close contact sports such as football etc until the stitches have healed completely.
- Change your dressing regularly: A dressing should be changed as soon as it gets wet or soaked with blood or other body fluids. Wear clean medical gloves while changing a dressing. When putting on a new dressing do not touch the inside of the dressing or apply any creams on the stitches unless advised so by your doctor. In the case of removable stitches, the doctor will usually remove the stitches after a few days. DO not attempt to pull the stitches out on your own.
- Avoid exposing the wound to sunlight: New skin that forms as the incision heals is very sensitive to sunlight and gets sunburnt very easily. Limiting your exposure to sunlight can help reduce the effects of scarring.

1. Zap your stress.-
'The biggest issue I see in most of my patients
Is that they have too much stress. Stress can have significant
Health consequences, from infertility to higher
Risks of depression, anxiety, and heart disease.
Find the stress-reduction method that works for
You and stick with it'
2. Stop dieting.-
'Eating healthy doesn't mean you have to forget
Your favorite glass of wine or a piece of
Chocolate cake now and then. The key is
Moderation. Get a mix of lean proteins, healthy
Fats, smart carbs, and fiber'
3. Don't take too much calcium.-
'Too much absorbed calcium can increase the
Risk of kidney stones and may even increase the
Risk of heart disease. If you're under 50, shoot
For 1, 000 milligrams per day, while over-50
Women should be getting 1, 200 milligrams per
Day mainly through diet -- about three servings
Of calcium-rich foods such as milk, salmon, and
4. Do more than cardio.-
'Women need a mix of cardio and resistance or
Weight-bearing exercise at least three to five
Times a week to help prevent osteoporosis,
Heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. Exercise
Also promotes good self-image, which is really
Important to a woman's mental health'
5. Think about fertility.-
Your birth control options
'While many women have no problem getting
Pregnant in their late 30s and even into their
Early 40s, a woman's fertility may start to
Decline as early as 32. So if you want to have
Kids, talk to your doctor first.'
6. Appreciate birth control.-
'Birth control gets a bad rap, but not only can it
Keep you from getting pregnant before you're
Uterine and ovarian cancer as well as regulate
7. See your doctor every year.-
'Make sure you get a pap test to check for
Cervical cancer every 3 years if you are 21 or
Older. If you are 30-65, you can get both a pap
Test and hpv test every 5 years. Older than that,
You may be able to stop testing if your doctor
Says you are low risk. If you are sexually active
And have a higher risk for stds, get tests for
Chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis yearly. Take
An hiv test at least once, more frequently if
You're at risk. Don't skip your yearly checkup.
Your doctor needs to annually assess many
Other issues such as potential infection, your
Need for contraception, and sexual complaints'
8. Have good sex.-
'Sex reduces stress and may lower the risk of
Chronic disease -- but only if you enjoy it. If
Anything prevents you from sexual fulfillment,
Such as dryness or pain, talk to your doctor to
Find a solution'
9. Get more sleep.-
'Sleep needs differ, but if you have trouble
Getting out of bed, tire easily, or have trouble
Concentrating, you likely aren't getting enough.
Recent studies suggest this can put you at
Greater risk of heart disease and psychological
10. Consider genetic testing.-
'Doctors can now screen people with a family
History of breast cancer, ovarian cancer, and
Chronic diseases to assess their risk -- and
Then consider preventive measures. Talk to your
