Dear , it is better that you follow the instructions of your gynecologist. It is a fairly big cyst and since it is painful there might be a chance that it might be endometriosis which is a endometrium growing outside the uterine cavity. Surgery is definitely indicated. Ashokarishta and chandraprabha vati will help please start the same after consulting an ayurvedic physician.

Hello, No, anal sex has nothing to do with increase in the size of the ass. However it is sometimes painful for the female if not done with proper lubrication.

Hi very sorry for your loss. How was the baby delivered. If it was normal delivery, anytime is ok. Just recover physically, start taking folic acid. If it was by operation, then waiting at least 6 months makes sense.

If you had sex then there is chance of pregnancy, you should do urine pregnancy test, If pregnancy test is negative and you don't get period then to detect the cause you need to do some blood tests and ultrasound of pelvis.

Hello, if there has been no intercourse and no ejaculation and just oral se involved then there are no chances of pregnancy at all. The delay in menses may be stress induced or she may be suffering from pcos or any hormonal deficiency like hypothyroidism, Regards.

First remove your stress and you can check by prega news if you have any doubt and some time you might have a ph balance in the vagina that is easily changed, even by the act of sex, and that can lead to infections and other problems that cause your vaginal area to swell.

Hello, you are required to start taking the tablet at least three days before your period is due and to continue taking it for the duration that you would like to delay your period. It is recommended that norethisterone 5 mg tablets should be taken to delay your period for a maximum of 17 days. It is perfectly safe to delay your period for this amount of time. After you stop taking the tablets, your period is likely to start after two or three days, however the time scale may be different for every individual. This dose of norethisterone is not recommended for prolonged use, as it can cause side-effects and affect your hormone balance.

The amount of people drinking soda on a regular basis has increased rapidly. With cola being the most preferred drink. In fact, more and more people are now substitute plain water with soda drinks. Not realising how it is deeply affecting our organs. Soda beverages contain staggering amount of sugar, with high fructose corn syrup, which is one of the biggest causes of obesity in India.

This is what happens when you drink carbonated drinks.

After 20 minutes- the effects that soda has on your body vary over a duration of time as explained here. For instance, within 20 minutes of drinking soda, you will notice a spike in your blood sugar. Then, the liver responds to this insulin burst and converts massive amounts of sugar into fat.

At 40 minutes- the next stage happens by 40 minutes, when the blood pressure rises due to absorption of caffeine. This is the time when liver dumps a lot more sugar in your blood-stream.

An hour- an hour later, the sugar crash is witnessed, which leads to the cycle of consuming more and more sugar.

Overall health- so in effect, having aerated beverages affects your weight, brain, kidneys, digestive system and even your bones, heat, lungs and the teeth!
