This is periovulatory period for her and there is a fair chance of pregnancy. You should give her I pill within 72 hours. However this not good contraception as it may cause irregular periods. Taking regular oral cyclicalpills would be dependable.

Eating Habits
Proper nutrition is necessary for healthy teeth and gums. Eating a well-balanced diet gives gum tissues and teeth the important nutrients and minerals needed to stay strong and resist infections. Soft, sticky foods tend to remain on the grooves and between teeth. Hence thorough rinsing after every meal is necessary.

Period start hona matlab pregnancy nahi hai, Lekin period start hone k Baad 10-18 din me unsafe sexual contact hua to pregnancy hone ke chances jyada hote hai, kyunki isi time me Ovulation hota hai, jo pregnancy k liye important hota.

These signs does not necessarily indicate that you are pregnant. However, if you took any birth control pill, it is natural to experience such side effects.

Healthy Pregnancy Tip # 2: Choose a Care Provider Wisely
It goes without saying that you want a birth that is healthy for you and your baby. The care and treatment that you get while in labor, would affect you physically, mentally and emotionally, and have an impact on your health, and that of your baby. So think about how you would like to give birth. Choose your healthcare provider carefully. Meet more than one care providers and try to assess what they feel about:
1. Your having a friend/ your partner/ a relative with you during labour for support.
2. Your wanting to have your labour start on its own.
3. Your wanting to move around, and try different positions during labour.
4. Your eating and drinking during labour.
5. Using interventions like induction, i/v lines, foetal monitors, episiotomy, etc.
6. Your wanting to breastfeed your baby within the first hour of delivery.
7. Performing infant care procedures like cutting cord, apgar assessment, taking temperature, footprints, etc. With the baby held close to you.

The 7-Day Detox Diet: Time to Get Healthy & Active

The 7-Day Detox Diet: Time to Get Healthy & Active
Smooth digestion and absorption of nutrients along with your liver’s efficient processing of toxins are absolutely critical for great health. That’s why a cleanse program can be a powerful tool to rejuvenate your body and skin from the inside out.

The key to comfortable cleanse is to ease yourself into the program, so that your body doesn’t go into a shock. Five days before you begin your detox, progressively eliminate alcohol, coffee, cigarettes, refined sugars, saturated fats and all processed foods. These can add as toxins in your body.

Increase fiber intake to help keep your colon clean. Along with the fiber from fruits and vegetables, include two tablespoon of chia seeds in a glass of water to eliminate toxins from your body. Don’t forget to drink lots of filtered water- at least eight glasses per day.

Another deterrent to good health is stress, as it triggers your body to release stress hormones. It’s a good idea to cleanse stressful life situations along with your body. Keep a diary and take a note not only of what you eat and drink but also your emotions.

I hope you are sufficiently motivated, now let’s get started with the specifics.

DAY 1

Carrots
Beetroot
Celery
Mint
Coriander
Parsley
Wheatgrass
Spinach
Kale

Add a tablespoon of chia seeds to your juice, for that extra fiber and power boost. (I don’t recommend juicing fruits as that will shoot up your sugar levels and we don’t want that happening).

LUNCH: Raw or lightly steamed vegetables with a variety of seasonal preferably organic vegetables .

You can choose from the following:
Mushrooms

SNACKS: Drink as much water, unsweetened herbal tea as you wish during the day. Aim for at least 8 glass of water within the day. Make a trail mix of nuts and seeds like walnuts, almonds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, melon seeds, chia seeds and flax seeds. Eat low GI fruits like guava, pear, apple, orange, strawberries, peach, plums and apricots.

DAY 2
Start the morning with half a lemon squeezed into warm water or cleansing herb tea. Follow with a brisk walk, bike ride, yoga or swimming

Hi Indrani. It would be really good to get physical examination done in your case. Your periods have been irregular and it would be good to get your hormones evaluated.

You should avoid fried and fatty foods . Consume fruits, green vegetables, chicken and fish instead that are a good source of proteins, Also do regular exercise and try and optimise your body weight.
