She has hypoplastic uterus. Is she able to give a birth to child? is there any treatment?

She has hypoplastic uterus.
Is she able to give a birth to child?
is there any treatment?
Conception and child birth is dependent on a number of other female factors like ovulation, patent tubes, hormonal factors. A hypoplastic uterus per se is not a cause of subfertility or inability to bear or deliver a child. All the other factors and also whether there is/ are any congenital malformation of the uterus which may be correctable has to be taken into account.

Hi lybrate-user, it would be better if you rule out pregnancy first with urine pregnancy test. If the test is negative then you need to get evaluated and I need detail clinical history so as to understand your case.

Should You Keep Having Eggs for Breakfast During SUMMERs?

Diploma in Diet and Nutrition, B.Pharma

Should You Keep Having Eggs for Breakfast During SUMMERs?

It is often believed that eggs tend to heat up your stomach and, hence, should be avoided as much as possible. People believe that eating eggs during the hot summer months can lead to detrimental health effects. One of the reasons attributed to this belief is that eggs contain copious amounts of cholesterol, which can generate tremendous amounts of body heat.

However, contrary to popular belief, eggs do not heat up your system and perfectly safe for consumption during the season of some summer.

Having eggs for breakfast helps you with the following:

1. Cholesterol Factor - To be precise, a single egg provides 212 mg of cholesterol out of the recommended 300 mg. However, cholesterol in your diet does not raise the cholesterol levels in your blood. This happens because the liver produces a high quantity of cholesterol each day, and when you eat more eggs causing your cholesterol levels to rise, the liver starts producing less of it. In fact, a study found that eggs didn't raise cholesterol in 70% of its test subjects.

2. Provides Choline - Choline is a substance, which is required by the body to build cell membranes and to perform a horde of other functions like liver function, brain development, nerve, and muscle function. Lack of choline could lead to disruption of these functions. Whole eggs contain more than 100 mg of this less known nutrient, and therefore, should be a part of your diet.

3. Contains Lutein and Zeaxanthin - One of the gradual symptoms of aging is worsening eyesight. There are many types of nutrients that help in countering this degenerative process. Two such nutrients are lutein and zeaxanthin, which eggs are rich in. These two antioxidants help to build up the retina of the eye. Moreover, they also help in preventing eyesight conditions like cataracts and macular degeneration. Eggs are also rich in Vitamin A, the lack of which is the most common cause of blindness worldwide.

4. Reduces risk of stroke - For many decades, eggs have been unfairly criticized. A popular misbelief was that high cholesterol in eggs made them a cause for cardiac problems. In a review, which accounted for 17 studies and a total of 263,938 participants, no associations were found between eggs and heart diseases. Eggs are also highly filling and help to lose weight to a certain extent.

If you r getting relief after medicine n reappearing after stopping medicine, it appears that medicine might be discontinued before tt is complete for some reason or other. Pls continue tt as per advise of doctor. If tt is stopped after doctor advise, pls take 2nd opinion. It is difficult to advise without examination.

Weight should be reduced @5 kg per month to maintain health. You are doing fine by taking right diet and doing exercises. Don't take any supplements and listen to body language so as not to tire yourself by working out for extra hours. Eating a healthy food along with exercise shall become a lifetime good habit, and one should not be obsessed with body, food or exercises as if the entire world revolves around only for above 3.
