I am 22 yrs old and my height is 4.11 please suggest me how to reduce the breast size.
Start a great exercise plan. Another thing that reduces breast size is exercise. Since most of the breast volume is fatty tissue, losing weight will also help you decrease your breast size. You should focus on fat-burning exercises and limit your sugar intake so that you will reduce more of your body fat. When you begin to tone and shape your body, you will notice that your breast size also decreases. This is simply the reduction of the fatty tissue present in your breasts. Myself being a homoeopath will prescribe you PHYTOLACCA BERRY 3X TABS ( Wilmar Schwabe India) taken 2 Tabs two times a day and claim to burn excess fat in the mammary glands which inevitably decreases breast size

Toxic Shock Syndrome & Its 6 Symptoms

Toxic Shock Syndrome & Its 6 Symptoms

Toxic shock syndrome (TSS) is a potentially life-threatening condition that causes a steep drop in blood pressure, resulting in deprivation of oxygen to the organs, which in severe cases leads to death. This disease has been associated with menstruating women who use superabsorbent tampons. It was first recognized in the 1970s and 80s when women using tampons of certain brands were affected by this syndrome and those brands were immediately taken off the market. This disease primarily affects tampon wearers and harmful effects of cervical caps, diaphragms, and menstrual sponges have surfaced.

New mothers are susceptible to TSS as well as those who are recovering from a surgery, are wounded or are using prosthetics. It is important to know about its symptoms so that you can identify the disease and seek professional help at the earliest.

Warning signs of TSS include:

  1. Seizure
  2. Headaches
  3. Muscle aches
  4. Diarrhea
  5. High fever
  6. Nausea

Causes
An overgrowth of bacteria called Staphylococcus aureus (staph) causes this disease. It can be found primarily in female bodies. This is one of the many staph bacteria that lead to skin infections in burn victims and patients recovering from surgical wounds. Group a streptococcus (strep) bacteria is another cause of this syndrome.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Recurrent Miscarriages - 7 Major Causes

Recurrent Miscarriages - 7 Major Causes

Recurrent miscarriage is a condition when there has been three or more successive pregnancy losses. It is different from infertility as, infertility is the inability to conceive. For many cases, the cause of a recurrent miscarriage has not always been found. A number of factors can cause recurrent miscarriages of which some are treatable.It may not always be possible to identify a cause for recurrent miscarriage in a couple, even after extensive research and treatment procedures. Some of the common causes of recurrent miscarriage are described below:

  1. Chromosomal Abnormalities: Incompatible chromosomes can result into pregnancy losses. When an egg and a sperm meet, of which one of them is faulty, they can't line up properly resulting into chromosomal abnormality. Such conditions lead to miscarriages.
  2. Uterine Abnormalities or Incompetent Cervixes: Miscarriages occur if the uterus is abnormally shaped since the embryo is not properly implanted or even if it gets implanted, it may not get sufficient nourishment to survive. If the woman has a weak cervix, it cannot hold the developing embryo, leading to miscarriage.
  3. Immunologic Disorders: Under rare cases, the embryo itself is not accepted by the body. Antiphospholipid antibodies are those, which attack self tissues, such as embryos and prevent them from building up. This leads to recurrent miscarriage.
  4. Untreated Thyroid Problems: Conditions such as thyroid or uncontrolled diabetes result in uterine conditions which make it tough for the embryos to survive.
  5. Polycystic Ovary Syndrome: Women with polycystic ovary syndrome tend to have high levels of male hormones which, result in irregular menstruation and ovulation. This can prevent the lining of the endometrium from maturing that is required for holding the embryo.
  6. Bacterial Infections: There may be presence of a number of microorganisms inside the reproductive tract that may be harmless for the person. But there may be certain bacteria lined up in the reproductive tract, which can prevent development of embryo, thus leading to miscarriages.
  7. Lifestyle: Smoking and drinking are harmful lifestyle habits, which may increase the chance of miscarriage to a great extent. It is always advised to avoid smoking or drinking when you wish to conceive. Other lifestyle conditions, such as working in certain environments like hospital environments, farms, laboratories, etc, may lead to miscarriages; however, the exact reason has not been identified yet. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.

Is it healthy to have too much rice during pregnancy. I am 25 weeks pregnant and don't like having too much rice and prefer having it in small amount with other vegetables and salad. But my mother-in-law forces me to have large quantity of rice and insists that if I don't take it, the child won't grow and have a dislike towards rice in the future.
