Hi Sir, I am 13 years old and sometimes I get clear water like discharge from nipples I don't remember if from only one or both but today I got it from left nipple only and I also get some creamy white thing from nipple and the water one I get very less and all of them always come after I bath so today after bath I was removing the white creamy thing from my nipple with my nails and I think I maybe scratched it so water like fluid came and it never comes when I press my nipples and I am scared because I am not sure I scratched it I also have some breast lumps but they have gotten smaller and softer is it possible that this can be okay it only came from left nipple today and I am very scared I also got scared of the lumps but the doctor said they are growing tissue and will go away and they have gotten smaller but I really get scared very easily so can this be okay.
Shall I use Misoprostol tablet vaginally or orally, which is correct way? Please help. I am confused.
What is effective sucking?
During effective, nutritive sucking, your baby uses the structures of his or her mouth to compress the milk sinuses beneath your breast and move milk into the back of his or her throat to swallow. Initially, your baby may seem to suck in rapid bursts to trigger milk let-down, also called the milk-ejection reflex. Once let-down happens, your baby should suck at the rate of about one suck a second. He or she pauses only to take a breath with every few sucks.

Listen for swallowing. You should hear a "huh-ah" or soft "k" sound deep in the baby's throat as he or she sucks. Some babies swallow softly and other gulp loudly. You should NOT hear a clicking or smacking sound.
Watch your baby's jaw. You should see rhythmic movement in the muscle that runs from the lower jaw to the ear when she or he is sucking deeply. You should also notice rhythmic movement that begins at the edge of the baby's chin and travels down her or his throat as baby sucks and swallows. You should NOT see deep dimpling of his cheeks.
Allow your baby to direct feedings. Your baby will detach him- or herself when satisfied. After this happens, you can offer the other breast if your baby still seems hungry. If your baby often falls asleep at the breast within a few minutes of latch-on or your baby often breastfeeds for 35 minutes on the first breast without self-detaching, discuss this with your baby's healthcare provider or a certified lactation consultant.
Little vaginal bleeding during hard stool when I had a missed period for 3 days. What does it mean. It stopped just after stool it happened only once.Please tell.
Dark chocolate not only benefits the heart and has lots of other health benefits too:
- cocoa and dark chocolate have a wide variety of powerful antioxidants, way more than most other food
- the bioactive compounds in cocoa can improve blood flow in the arteries and cause a small but statistically significant decrease in blood pressure.
- dark chocolate improves several important risk factors for disease. It lowers the susceptibility of ldl to oxidative damage while increasing hdl and improving insulin sensitivity.
But of course, this doesn't mean you should go all out and consume lots of chocolate every day. It is still loaded with calories and easy to overeat on. Maybe have a square after dinner and try to really savor them.
Be aware that a lot of the chocolate available in the market is not good. You need to choose quality stuff; organic, dark chocolate with 70% or higher cocoa content.
