My fiancee having an irregular periods. From past a year this problem is continuing yet. What may be the problem? Is this problem due to any food habits or tight dresses or any else? She does not drink milk from her childhood. Does it make any problems now or in future? What are the best foods to have regular periods? How much litres of water needs to drink in this situation? Whether Can she bath in hot water or cold water? Does exercise or yoga have any remedies for it? What kind of exercise is needed?
Health benefits of kiwifruit
What fruit provides 273% of the daily recommended amount of vitamin c in every one-cup serving – five times that of an orange, and is a natural immune booster that staves off colds and flu? it's kiwifruit, of course! its vitamin k amount is impressive, too – best known for its role in helping blood clot, or coagulation, properly and providing an 89% daily value.
Kiwifruits contain good amounts of vitamin a (great for skin, bone, and tooth development, and protected vision, including protection against macular degeneration), and vitamin e (twice the amount found in avocados, with nearly half the calories), along with potassium to balance the body's electrolytes and limiting hypertension and high blood pressure. The copper in kiwifruit is especially good for children, supporting healthy development in infants, especially in the areas of bone growth and brain development, and also for the formation of healthy red blood cells and building immunity against disease.
Kiwifruit is also one of the few foods rich in vitamin b6, which supports the immune system. B6 is particularly important for healthy fetuses and pregnant or breastfeeding women. The folate in kiwifruit protects against birth defects, heart disease, and cancer; healthy amounts of fiber keep the system running smoothly, reducing the risk of diverticulitis and carcinogens in the body. Finally, the antioxidant power in kiwifruits delivers similar effects when it comes to neutralizing free radicals that can damage cells and cause inflammation and cancer.
However, consume kiwifruit in moderation because it contains fructose, which may be harmful to your health in excessive amounts.
I've been having clear vaginal discharge here lately, it soaks my panties. My vagina is healthy but sometimes burns or itches. A couple months ago my boyfriend took my virginity. I don't know if this has anything to do with it or not:/ but I did have my last period on time and my normal flow. What's going on, should I go see the doctor?
General Precautions in Swine Flu during Pregnancy
Frequent handwashing is the single most important safety precaution that is suggested.
Flu spreads when virus from an infected person's secretions like sneezing etc spreads in the environment.Occassionaly touching an infected area and then touching your nose/ eyes or mouth may allow the live virus to enter your system. Most of the time this virus gets killed by our body's defences but at times it may survive and cause flu.
Catch it, Bin it and kill it is the magic mantra:
Catch your infected secretions in a tissue/ handkerchief and promptly kill it by putting it in the dustbin and washing your hands with soap.
Hand sanitizers with at least 60% alcohol content are supposed to kill the virus in 60 seconds.
Keep the hard surfaces/infants toys; clean. Household cleansers should be used liberally as they can reduce the transmission rate.
Finally it is advised that in pregnancy one should avoid contact with sick people.
Use of vaccines
Till date two types of vaccines against swine flu are available.
1) Nasal spray vaccine: This cannot be taken in pregnancy.
2) Injectable vaccine: This is safe in pregnancy and it is strongly recommended that if seasonal swine flu is present then all pregnant women should take the vaccine. Please ask your doctor for more details.
WHO recommends that all pregnant women should be offered the vaccine. This will decrease their chances of contracting the disease and also protect their newborn from swine flu in the neonatal period
This vaccine does not have any serious side effects but may cause mild flu like symptoms upto 48hrs in some people but this is not flu as the vaccine does not have live virus. There may be some redness, soreness,or swelling at the injection site which disappears on its own.
Use of Drugs:
These are used only for close contacts of confirmed positive cases, like people living in the same house as the patient.
The drug (Tamiflu) is safe in pregnancy. Ask your doctor whether you should be taking it in case you are pregnant and any of your family members have been diagnosed with swine flu.
What should I do if I think I have swine flu and I'm pregnant?
You must go to your doctor immediately ;who would check you up and may want to take throat/ nose swabs for confirmation of swine flu. If she thinks you indeed have swine flu, she may start the medicines without waiting for the lab confirmation.
If swine flu is confirmed then you have to take further treatement from dedicated swine flu centers in your area.
In the mean time, stop going to your workplace and avoid unneccesary exposure to people to contain the spread of flu.
If you have a mild disease then you need to take treatment from home. You must avoid exertion and take plenty of fluids by mouth during this time.
If your symptoms are severe then you may require hospital admission to monitor you and your baby.
Can I breastfeed my baby if I have swine flu?
Yes. In fact it has been found that breastfed babies have a stronger immunity against swine flu.
If you have an active flu or you are very sick, you may express breast milk in a bottle and a healthy person can feed the baby.
You need not stop breastfeeding your baby even if you are on treatment for swine flu.

A lot of people are switching from regular water to sparkling water, which is considered to be more of a fad. Sparkling water is just carbonated plain water. It is equally hydrating, but with a ‘kick’! The bubbles in the water tantalise taste buds. But there have been too many controversies surrounding the consumption of sparkling water. Tooth enamel erosion, calcium deficiency and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) are said to be some of the harmful effects of consuming sparkling water. But there has not been any scientific study to back this up.
Most of the rumours surrounding sparkling water arise from the carbonated factor. Carbonation leads to formation of carbonic acid in the water making sparkling water slightly acidic in nature. In addition if the water has sodium bicarbonate or any other chemical added to it for slight salty taste it increases the sodium content of the water, which is not good for people suffering from high blood pressure. There are other harmful ingredients like sugar, preservatives, phosphoric acid etc. in other carbonated drinks, which mightn’t be present in Sparkling water et all.
Although sparkling water has not been found to be unhealthy, but we should remember acid in the sparkling water erodes teeth enamel and gas leads to IBS. There are a few other things one must remember before replacing regular water with sparkling water:
- Stomach problems: Though this issue is extremely subjective, affecting some and not all. Sparkling water just has extra air in it. This air can lead to excessive flatulence, burping and bloating in the abdomen for some. However, it will not affect everyone equally.
- Stealthy sugar and sodium: Bottled soda water and tonic water are some types of sparkling water. These are not healthy. Tonic water contains sodium and sugar. If you are observing your sodium intake, then do not drink sparkling water. However, those who do intensive athletic activities, they may opt for sparkling water. You lose electrolytes through sweat. Sparkling water can provide quick hydration.
- Flavours: People who invest in carbonators, get small little flavouring packets. It is advised, for your well-being, not to use these to flavour the water. They are not always healthy as they contain extra calories and sugar. Consuming soda and sparkling water won’t make much of a difference then. Instead of the packets, you can use cucumber, mint leaves, lime and lemon, or any other fruit, to flavour your water. It adds no extra calories and is actually good for you!
You can, indeed, safely replace regular water with sparkling water. It is a fun way to stay hydrated!
Before 2 day I did sex That the time flowing some transparent water into my vagina Still flowing sometime but not continuously I hope its not pregnancy symptoms?
हमारे आस-पास ऐसी बहुत सी चीजें मौजूद है जो औषधीय गुणों से भरपूर, हमारे लिए फायदेमंद हैं पर हम उनसे अनजान होते हैं। जानकारी का अभाव कई बार बगल में छोरा गांव में ढिंढोरा की कहावत को चरितार्थ करता है, जैसे शिवलिंगी बीज। जो अक्सर हमारे इर्द-गिर्द मौजूद होती है पर हम इससे और इसके गुणों से अनजान होने की वजह से अपनी समस्याएं सुलझाने के लिए हैरान होते है। तो आज हम ऐसी ही बहुगुणी वनस्पति की हम बात करेंगे जिसे शिवलिंगी बीज कहते हैं। हमारे वनों में, खेतों और खलिहानों में, आँगनो में और बाडों आदि में विभिन्न प्रकार की वनस्पतियाँ पाई जाती है। इन्ही में से एक है शिवलिंगी। शिवलिंगी का वैज्ञानिक नाम ब्रयोनोप्सिस लेसिनियोसा होता है। आप इसे अपने आस पास प्रचुर मात्रा में उगता हुआ देख सकते है। इसके बीजों की बनावट देखने से बिलकुल स्पष्ट रूप से शिवलिंग की रचना दिखाई देती है। शिवलिंगी बीज को सदियों से संतान प्राप्ति के लिए अचूक नुस्खे के तौर माना जाता रहा है। संतानविहीन दंपत्ती के लिये ये पौधा एक वरदान है। महिला को मासिक धर्म समाप्त होने के 4 दिन बाद प्रतिदिन सात दिनों तक संजीवनी के 5 बीज खिलाए जाए तो महिला के गर्भधारण की संभावनांए बढ़ जाती है। शिवलिंगी के बीजों को तुलसी और गुड के साथ पीसकर संतानविहीन महिला को खिलाया जाता है। महिला को जल्द ही संतान सुख की प्राप्ति होती है।
- इसकी पत्तियों की चटनी बनती है। आयुर्वेद के अनुसार ये टॉनिक की तरह काम करती है। जिन महिलाओं को संतानोत्पत्ति के लिए इसके बीजों का सेवन कराया जाता है। उन्हें विशेषरूप से इस चटनी का सेवन कराया जाता है। पत्तियों को बेसन के साथ मिलाकर सब्जी के रूप में भी खाया जा सकता है। आदिवासीयों के अनुसार इस सब्जी का सेवन गर्भवती महिलाओं को करना चाहिए। जिससे होने वाली संतान तंदुरुस्त पैदा होती है।
- शिवलिंगी के बीजों का उपयोग कर एक विशेष फार्मुला तैयार करते हैं ताकि जन्म लेने वाला बच्चा चुस्त, दुरुस्त और तेजवान हो। शिवलिंगी, पुत्रंजीवा, नागकेशर और पारस पीपल के बीजों की समान मात्रा लेकर चूर्ण बना लिया जाता है और इस चूर्ण का आधा चम्मच गाय के दूध में मिलाकर सात दिनों तक उस महिला को दिया जाता है। जिसने गर्भधारण किया होता है।
- इसके बीजों के चूर्ण को बुखार नियंत्रण और बेहतर सेहत के लिए उपयोग में लाते हैं। अनेक हिस्सों में इसके बीजों के चूर्ण को त्वचा रोगों को ठीक करने के लिए भी इस्तमाल किया जाता है।
- तो इस तरह शिवलिंगी बीज को साधारण नहीं समझे और जरूरत पड़ने पर इसके गुणों का लाभ जरूर उठाएं।
