My friend boobs size is 34 and her boobs is so loose in body so give me any name of cream for tight her boobs and healthy boobs.

Advanced Aesthetics
Ayurveda, Gulbarga
The beauty industry is flooded with a variety of breast enlargement options ranging from creams, pills and hormonal injections to expensive surgical options. If you want to go the natural way, there are some natural remedies that can give you good results. Natural methods can be effective but will take time, patience and consistency in your approach. However, natural remedies may not help women who have small breasts due to hereditary factors. Cucumber and egg yolk another excellent remedy for lifting the breasts is a mask prepared from cucumber and egg yolk. Cucumber has natural skin-toning properties and egg yolk has high levels of protein and vitamins that can help treat sagging breasts. 1. Puree 1 small cucumber in a blender. 2. Mix in 1 egg yolk and 1 teaspoon of butter or cream to get a paste. 3. Apply it onto your breasts and leave it on for about 30 minutes. 4. Wash it off thoroughly with cold water. 5. Use this mask once a week to firm and strengthen the breast tissues in ayurveda, fenugreek is often used to firm sagging breasts. It has vitamins and antioxidants that combat free radical damage and help lift, tighten and smooth skin around the breasts? mix 1/4 cup of fenugreek powder with enough water to form a thick paste. Massage this paste onto your breasts and leave it on for 5 to 10 minutes. Rinse it off with warm water. Follow this remedy once or twice a week? you can also prepare a breast mask with 1/2 cup of yogurt, 10 drops each of fenugreek oil and vitamin e oil and 1 egg white. Mix the ingredients until you get a smooth paste. Apply the paste onto your breasts and rub it in gently. Let it sit for about 30 minutes and then rinse it off with cold water. Use this mask once a week for oil and medicines consult me privately.

My baby is 1.6 years old. Now half of teeth grown. At what period can I teach her to brush.
Wait till all her teeth have erupted. Maximum time it will take is by 3 years of age. Between 2-3 years of age all her milk teeth would have erupted. Then you can teach her to brush teeth.

Sir meri wife 7 month 20 day ki pregnant hai aur unko leakage ho raha hai sir batay me kya karoon.

M.B.S.(HOMEO), MD - Homeopathy

Sir meri wife 7 month 20 day ki pregnant hai aur unko leakage ho raha hai sir batay me kya karoon.
Preterm premature rupture of membranes (PPROM) is when the amniotic sac breaks before 37 weeks of gestation and labor has not started within one hour. The sac contains amniotic fluid and the developing baby. In PPROM, the amniotic fluid inside the sac leaks or gushes out of the vagina. If your waters break early the risks and treatment are dependent on the stage of pregnancy you are at. You are at risk of going into labour prematurely – the health risks for the baby of early birth are greater the younger they are. If you do not go into labour, you and the baby are at risk of infection because the normally sterile waters have been broken. The doctors have to balance these two considerations. If the waters have broken because of infection, you and the baby have a high risk of getting the infection and you may need to deliver sooner to prevent this. If the waters have broken but there is no infection currently present, you and the baby are still at risk but the immediate risk is lesser and your treatment will depend on your stage of pregnancy. If you are under 24 weeks of pregnancy and the baby is born, sadly, it is unlikely the baby will survive. If you are over 30 weeks and the baby is born, the likelihood of your baby surviving is very high - over 95%. Tests for your baby As well as carrying out various tests on you, the healthcare team will need to assess how your baby is doing. They will check his heartbeat and may also: Run a scan to check his weight Carry out electronic fetal monitoting to check his heart rate Perform a scan to check that the placenta is functioning normally. Even if it is a false alarm, the team may want to keep you in hospital to monitor you and your baby. If you are in labour and less than 35 weeks pregnant, they may try to stop the contractions, or to slow down the birth enough to give you injections of steroids to help your baby breathe when he is born. Find out more here about what happens if you are definitely in labour. If you are 35 weeks or over, the team will usually let the birth go ahead.

Hi dear. Symtoms of pcod. Irregular periods. This is the most common characteristic. Examples include menstrual intervals longer than 35 days; fewer than eight menstrual cycles a year; failure to menstruate for four months or longer; and prolonged periods that may be scant or heavy. Excess androgen. Elevated levels of male hormones (androgens) may result in physical signs, such as excess facial and body hair (hirsutism), adult acne or severe adolescent acne, and male-pattern baldness (androgenic alopecia). Polycystic ovaries. Polycystic ovaries become enlarged and contain numerous small fluid-filled sacs which surround the eggs. Thanks.
