Lump discovered please help Hi, I have never had a lump in my breast before I'm 24 years old and I'm worried. The lump is on the same side as where I had an abscess removed recently. It's red and inflamed on the outside and tender to touch. Wondering what it could be, thanks x.

If the lump is red and tender to touch, it could be another abscess. You should get proper antibiotic treatment before going for its removal.

Seems it is some kind of Vaginal Infection, take rest, maintain good Personal hygeine and drink lot of water, if it is delivery pain then none of these will help and your pain would increase, or else your pain will decline once the Infection gets over. For any further information or assistance you may get back to us.

If she is having pcod, that may b a cause of this irregular mensturation. Other causes may b thyroid disorder or other sex hormonal disorder if she is not pregnant. But you must check the urinary pregnancy test.

Then you may not be pregnant. But you may confirm by USG abdomen. The benefit is you will also have the knowledge if you have any other problems. And don't worry if you are not pregnant. I have seen people conceiving after 8-14 months of trying.

I am suffering from PCOD. The doctors detected it in 2014 and then I was put on medication. After my medicines finished, I could feel the change. But now again the symptoms have started showing. I am quite over weight too. Can this be a reason? I am worried that this might affect my fertility as well. What should I be doing to get rid of this problem forever.

Pcod is more a lifestyle disorder, can can be controlled by lifestyle and dietary measures. Having a healthy lifestyle can help with pcos. This starts with a healthy diet, regular physical activity, and maintaining a healthy weight, a healthy diet, weight control, and not smoking are all important parts of treatment eat a balanced diet that includes lots of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat dairy products.

Condom can prevent pregnancy, but not other discomforts which are most probably due to some thing else not related to sex. Further, one warning, if you are indulging in sex without marriage you are exposing yourself to various risks. Be careful.

Hello, The menses can be delayed due to stress induced hormonal imbalances sometimes. So if your menses do not arrive by another 7 days then you may opt for a withdrawal bleed with progesterones.

Lemon Water - Did You Know You Were Drinking It The Wrong Way?

Lemon Water - Did You Know You Were Drinking It The Wrong Way?

Lemons are known worldwide for the amazing health benefits they offer. Lemons are indeed a perfect source of so many nutrients like riboflavin, thiamin, magnesium, iron, pantothenic acid, potassium, vitamin B6, etc. And, when it’s the combination of lemon and water, it becomes as tasty and refreshing drink as beneficial to one’s health. The practice of drinking lemon water is quite common among people as it is not only rich in nutrients, but also very easy to make. But there can be a possibility that you might be drinking it the wrong way and missing the many health benefits of lemon.

The common practice of drinking lemon water
People choose to drink lemon water regularly to enjoy all its benefits. But often, what they misunderstand is the ideal way in which the lemons need to be used in making the lemon water. And as a result, they miss out on a number of health benefits, offered by lemons.

The majority of people simply slice up the lemons, squeeze out the juice from them and then throw the lemon peels right away. And, it is exactly where the whole way of drinking lemon water gets wrong. Because it is the lemon peels that are mostly the nutrient rich parts of the entire lemon fruit.

The proper way in which lemon water should be drank
The best way to drink lemon water in the right way is by adding the peels to it. You must make sure to buy organic lemons that are fresh and seem juicy enough. Wash them properly and cut them into thick or thin slices, as per the preference of one. Then, squeeze the freshly sliced lemons into either hot or cold water. But be certain not to dispose of the peels.

Rather, one needs to grate the peels of the already squashed lemons into the lemon water, to make it filled with all the nutritional values of lemon and also the right way of having a healthy glass of lemon water.
One can also put the rest of the lemon slices aside in a travel cup or mug and fill it up with cold or boiling water to have another healthy cup of lemon water later.

The benefits of having lemon water the right way
When one includes both the juice of the lemons as well as the grated peels in his or her lemon water, the drink becomes the best source of consuming all the nutrients of the entire fruit. Lemon peels are known to contain 5 or 10 times more the vitamins that lemon juice does. As a result of adding all the parts of the lemon to the lemon water, one can receive a boost in the intake of antioxidants, vitamins C and B, volatile oils, and an increase in the resistance power of the body’s immunity system. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dietitian/Nutritionist.
