As per your dates, I can see that your day of intercourse is not falling in the high risk days of ovulation. If you are planning for a baby, you would need to go for ovulation study by ultrasound and plan the intercourse around the day of ovulation. You also need to see that your thyroid problem is under control. Your other symptoms may be due to vitamin b 12 deficiency.

Flaxseed Benefits and Side Effects in Hindi - Alsi ke Fayde aur Nuksan - अलसी के फायदे और नुकसान

Flaxseed Benefits and Side Effects in Hindi - Alsi ke Fayde aur Nuksan - अलसी के फायदे और नुकसान

अलसी लिनेसी परिवार से संबंधित हैं और वनस्पति रूप से लिनम् युसिटेटिसिमम् के रूप में जाना जाता है। अलसी हजारों वर्षों से भोजन के रूप में उपयोग किया गया है। अलसी छोटे, भूरा, सुनहरे रंग के बीज हैं। यह दुनिया में अल्फा-लिनोलेनिक एसिड (ए.एल.ए) नामक पौधे आधारित ओमेगा -3 फैटी एसिड का सबसे अमीर स्रोत है। 
ओमेगा 3 फैटी एसिड के अलावा, अलसी फाइबर, प्रोटीन, विटामिन बी 1, मैंगनीज, मैग्नीशियम, फास्फोरस और सेलेनियम का अच्छा स्रोत है। अलसी में विटामिन बी 6, आयरन, पोटेशियम, तांबे और जिंक की भी अच्छी मात्रा होती है। अलसी के बारे में एक और अनोखी तथ्य यह है कि वे मानव आहार में लिग्नांस का सबसे अच्छा स्रोत हैं।
 

अलसी के लाभ
अलसी के पोषण और स्वास्थ्य लाभ निम्नानुसार हैं:
1. फाइबर का बहुत अच्छा स्रोत: 
अलसी के सबसे असाधारण लाभों में से एक यह है कि, इसमे उच्च स्तर में म्यूसीजियम गम सामग्री हैं। म्यूसीज एक जेल बनाने वाला फाइबर है जो पानी में घुलनशील है और आंत्र पथ पर इसका अविश्वसनीय प्रभाव है। म्यूसीज पेट में भोजन को छोटी आंत में बहुत जल्दी से खाली करने से बचा सकता है जो पोषक तत्व अवशोषण को बढ़ा सकता है। 
साथ ही, दोनों घुलनशील और अघुलनशील फाइबर में अलसी अत्यंत उच्च है जो बृहदान्त्र विषाक्तता, वसा हानि और चीनी की लालच को कम कर सकते हैं।
2. वजन कम करने के लिए: चूंकि अलसी स्वस्थ वसा और फाइबर से भरे हुए हैं, इससे आपको बहुत अधिक संतुष्ट महसूस करने में मदद मिलेगी ताकि आप कुल मिलाकर कम कैलोरी खा सकें, जिससे वजन कम हो सकता है। ए.एल.ए वसा भी सूजन को कम करने में मदद कर सकता है।
3. कोलेस्ट्रॉल स्तर को बनाए रखने के लिए: अलसी बीज की घुलनशील फाइबर सामग्री पाचन तंत्र में वसा और कोलेस्ट्रॉल को जाल में डालती है ताकि इसे अवशोषित नहीं किया जा सके। घुलनशील फाइबर पित्त को भी फंसाता है, जो पित्ताशय की थैली में कोलेस्ट्रॉल से बना होता है।
पित्त को फिर पाचन तंत्र के माध्यम से उत्सर्जित किया जाता है, जिससे शरीर को और पित्त बनाने के लिए मजबूर किया जाता है। इससे रक्त में अतिरिक्त कोलेस्ट्रॉल का प्रयोग होता है और कुल कोलेस्ट्रॉल कम होता है।
4. कैंसर के लिए: अलसी में एंटीऑक्सीडेंट कैंसर से सुरक्षा प्रदान करते हैं। हाल के अध्ययनों से यह निष्कर्ष निकाला गया है कि अलसी स्तन, प्रोस्टेट और पेट के कैंसर के विकास के जोखिम को कम कर सकते हैं। अलसी में उपस्थित लिग्नांस में प्रतिजन गुण होते हैं और ट्यूमर द्वारा नए रक्त कोशिकाओं के निर्माण को रोकते हैं।
अलसी की खपत स्तन कैंसर रोगियों में जीवित रहने की दर में वृद्धि कर सकती है।
5. त्वचा के लिए: अलसी और इसके तेल में कई त्वचा के अनुकूल पोषक तत्व होते हैं जो त्वचा के स्वास्थ्य में सुधार करने में मदद कर सकते हैं। लिग्नान और ओमेगा 3 फैटी एसिड के उच्च स्तर, स्वस्थ मल त्याग को बढ़ावा देते हैं और त्वचा रोगों को रोकते हैं। ओमेगा 3 फैटी एसिड त्वचा कोशिकाओं के स्वस्थ विकास के लिए बहुत महत्वपूर्ण हैं। अलसी में उपस्थित लिग्नांस शरीर में मौजूद डी.एन.एच.टी के स्तर को कम करके त्वचा की उपस्थिति में सुधार करने के लिए सहायता करते हैं।
अलसी की नियमित खपत, त्वचा की जलन, चकत्ते, सूजन और लालिमा को सफलतापूर्वक कम कर सकती है। अलसी में आवश्यक फैटी एसिड त्वचा को हाइड्रेटेड और मॉइस्चराइज करते रहें, इस प्रकार मुँहासे, जिल्द की सूजन और छालरोग जैसी त्वचा की समस्याओं को रोकते है।
6. बालों के लिए: अलसी में मौजूद ओमेगा 3 फैटी एसिड की उच्च मात्रा बालों के लोच में वृद्धि करता है और उन्के टूटने की संभावना कम करता है। अलसी के विरोधी भड़काऊ गुण रूसी, एक्जिमा और अन्य स्कैल्प स्थितियों की संभावना को कम करते है। अलसी खोपड़ी में सीबम के उत्पादन को प्रोत्साहित करते हैं, इस प्रकार फलक और रूसी को रोकते हैं।
यह किणयुक्त खालित्य को रोकने में भी उपयोगी है, एक स्थायी बालों के झड़ने की स्थिति।
 

अलसी के दुष्प्रभाव
1 अलसी में बहुत अधिक कैलोरी होती हैं और बड़ी मात्रा में उपभोग से रेचक प्रभाव हो सकता है। 
2 जब्ती विकार से पीड़ित लोगों को अलसी की खुराक से बचना चाहिए क्योंकि इससे हालत और बिगड़ सकती है।
3 अलसी में साइनाइड यौगिकों की थोड़ी मात्रा होती है, जिससे शरीर पर न्यूरोटॉक्सिक प्रभाव पड़ सकता है। इसलिए, इसका बड़ी मात्रा में उपभोग नहीं किया जाना चाहिए।
4 अलसी के अन्य दुष्प्रभावों में खुजली, चकत्ते और सांस की तकलीफ शामिल है।

I had unprotected sex with my bf and I took an ipill immediately after 4 hrs. And after 7 days of taking the pill I'm experiencing withdrawal bleeding and had a slight temperature and also feeling tired. Why is it so? Does it mean I could be pregnant?

Withdrawal bleeding occurs in such treatment. For fever and feeling tired meet medical practitioner. As i pill type of tabs have high hormones it is not used as regular family planning method so learn about family planning methods and choose one for future.

Post-Pregnancy Weight - 10 Tips To Lose It!

Post-Pregnancy Weight - 10 Tips To Lose It!

Post-pregnancy weight can be difficult to get rid of. It is a gradual process and often takes time. Experts are of the view that hormonal imbalance and a sudden increase in the diet are the major cause of the additional weight. This being said, shedding weight is possible if a consistent effort is made on a daily basis. Here is a list of hat tips to get you started:

  1. Walk every day: Walking 5 minutes a day does the world of good in the endeavor of shedding weight. Post the 6-week check-up after the arrival of the baby, the duration of walking can be increased. Brisk walking for half an hour can help the body to weight as much as 300 calories a day.
  2. Weight training- Weight training is one of the best forms of exercise to lose weight quickly. If hitting a gym is a problem, a personal trainer can be hired for working out. Certain exercises such as lifting small weights, doing lunges is a good way to start.
  3. Breastfeed: Breastfeeding for a time duration of 30-45 minutes (about3-4 times a day) helps to lose 600-800 calories per day. Some women even report of shedding all their extra weight just through breastfeeding. This is by far the easiest way of losing weight.
  4. Say no to calories- Calories, by all means, will have to be avoided. Certain fast food items such as soda, chocolate, and chips should not be consumed at all. Instead, meals rich in nutrient, fresh vegetable, fruits, whole grains etc. should be consumed on a daily basis.
  5. Frequent meals- 2 to 3 heavy meals a day are detrimental to a person trying to shed weight. Frequent meals, on the other hand, maintain a steady blood sugar level, reduce the tendency of over-eating and do not let fat store in the body.
  6. Frequent naps- Studies show that frequent naps can help a great deal of weight. It reduces the craving of eating food with high calorie. It also revitalizes the metabolism and refrains a person from long term self-deprivation. Naps will also help to gather enough energy to perform other physical activities.
  7. Healthy snacks- Home-made snacks containing whole wheat, low-fat milk and yogurt are good snack options for post pregnancy weight loss. These snacks block hormones that are responsible for storage of fat in the body.
  8. Yoga or meditation- Yoga has proved to be extremely effective for women trying to shed post-pregnancy weight. It especially helps in toning down the fat in the upper and lower abdomen which is extremely difficult to get rid of. Yoga also relaxes the mind and helps to focus more.
  9. Consumption of warm water- Drinking warm water after every meal serves two purposes.
    • It doesn’t let the fat store inside the body.
    • It helps in better digestion. It has to be ensured that the water is mildly warm and drinkable.
  10. Avoid stress- Nurturing a baby is exhausting enough. Stress on top of this can be disastrous. It leads to depression resulting into junk eating. It has to be ensured that stress is avoided by engaging in activities such as cooking, painting or listening to music.

Water is not harmful during summers, specially if baby is not breast fed. 8 months old baby can be introduced to semisolids with less fats. He must be crawling and putting things in his mouth as a reflex. He may be having infected stools-reason for not eating. Get a stool test done & write back with report & his milk source-breast, cow, bufalloe or powder milk + type of solid food if given so far. Give baby gripe water - bonison & syrup dicyclomine for cramps, he may be having and getting cranky.

Solving Routine Sexual Problems Through Ayurveda

Solving Routine Sexual Problems Through Ayurveda

A number of factors, such as physical ailments, stress, anxiety and even relationship problems can cause sexual problems. Relationship concerns where intimacy and the culmination of the various phases of sexual activity from stimulation to excitement and peak, cannot be possible in a satisfactory manner. So what are the routine sexual problems recognised and treated as per Ayurveda? Read on to know more.

1. Erectile Dysfunction: This condition is also known as impotence and it usually occurs when male patients cannot muster up and retain an erection for long enough to enjoy sexual intercourse. This problem can be fixed with various herbs and condiments including Sanda Oil massage on the testicles and nearby areas in order to increase the blood flow. Also, one can have ginger, honey, drumsticks, milk and other such ingredients for better achievement and retention of an erection for a prolonged period of time during sexual intercourse.

Sanda oil is not available in its pure form and simple branding of this name is not useful. Sanda is a wild reptile, which was boiled in ancient times and fats taken out to make Sanda oil. This is not possible now a days. Instead various 'Tilas' (penis massage oils) prepared by valuable herbs and vegetable oils such as Sesame oil should be used. Tila using Mall (purified arsenic) and egg are also effective. Preparation and use should be as per instructions in classic Ayurveda. Tila is selected as per history, present condition and duration of specific problem

OTC or advertisement products are general products, which do not benefit all. Post application directions are also important otherwise there may be adverse effect of Tila application

2. Premature Ejaculation: Premature ejaculation is a condition when the male patient may face ejaculation as soon as the intercourse begins, or upon insertion. This happens in an unplanned way and is a sudden occurrence that usually puts a damper on the sexual mood and activity. In Ayurveda, there are various herbs including Ashwagandha and a variety of oil massages that can help in treating this problem.

3. Sexual Weakness: Sexual weakness is a condition when the female or male patient may not have the energy to go through with sexual intercourse and may even complain of pain during intercourse. This problem is especially common among women, and may be caused due to fatigue, stress or even low pelvic strength following childbirth or miscarriage. The best way to treat this issue is with the help of proper counselling and therapy that will help in introducing Yogic poses that can strengthen the pelvic area so as to have better sexual strength.

4. Infertility: This problem may be found in both men and women. Ashwagandha, Vasant Kusumakar Ras, Shilajit and Labub Kabir are some of the herbs and concoctions that can help in increasing virility and the chances of conception by creating better sperm quality and quantity, as well as more effective ovulation.

Most of the sexual problems in Ayurveda are recognised as factors that arise from stress and anxiety. These are recognised as temporary issues that can be fixed with the help of a proper routine of eating, resting and exercising, as well as a healthy diet where the patient stays away from smoking, excessive drinking as well as drug abuse. Before taking any herbal medicines, one will have to consult the doctor and find out about side effects for patients suffering from chronic ailments like diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and others.

Hello- Pain during sex is due to dryness in the vagina. Thinning of the lining of the vagina resulting in symptoms of dryness. Vaginal lubrication occurs naturally and also increases with sexual stimulation and arousal, due to the increased blood flow to the genital area. There are certain products that are natural that are great lubricants including jojoba, coconut oil, and aloe. A vitamin E suppository may be an additional option.
