Hi. any fever and headache during pregnancy needs a doctors consult, to rule out serious problems. It could be a simple headache and fever, and will resolve with a Crocin. Still needs a doctor consult. Meet your obstetrician.

Gastric Band Surgery - Understanding More About It!

Gastric Band Surgery - Understanding More About It!

Losing weight is a daunting task. This becomes all the more difficult for obese people. In many cases, the patient may be advised to undergo bariatric surgery. There are many types of bariatric surgery. Some surgeries address both the stomach and the small intestines while others address only the stomach. A gastric band surgery is one such procedure. For this procedure, an adjustable band is placed around the upper half of the stomach. This creates a small pouch that can hold a limited amount of food. The band is connected through a plastic tube to a small device placed under the abdominal skin. Sterile fluid may be injected or removed from the band through this device. By injecting saline, the band is made tighter and by removing the liquid the band is loosened. This allows the band to be customized to improve weight loss.

The result of a gastric band surgery may vary from person to person. Physical recovery typically takes 4 to 6 weeks. Because the size of the stomach is reduced, the person will feel full faster and hence eat less. In most cases, a person can expect to lose 35-45% of their excess weight. This should not be confused with a person’s total weight. In some cases, additional procedures may be required to adjust the band or deal with any complications that may arise. The procedure may also be reversed at a later date if need be.

Some people may develop side effects and complications with this procedure. The most common side effects include nausea, vomiting and surgical complications such as infections, bleeding at the site of the surgery and issues with the adjustment device. Surgical complications connected with this procedure are rare and occur in less than 10% of the cases. Vitamin deficiencies are rare as this surgery does not interfere with the absorption of nutrients by the small intestines.

However, in some cases, complications may arise in the long term use of this band. This is typically seen when the patient does not undergo regular maintenance or reverts to his earlier, unhealthy diet and lifestyle. Ideally, a patient should get follow up checks every month after such a surgery. This allows the doctor to make any necessary adjustments to the device. Thus, placing the band is only the first step of the process to lose weight. Unless the patient makes a decision to follow the program strictly, success cannot be guaranteed.

Know More About Atheroslerosis!

Know More About Atheroslerosis!

Atherosclerosis is a disease in which plaque builds up inside your arteries. Plaque is a sticky substance made up of fat, cholesterol, calcium, and other substances found in the blood. Over time, plaque hardens and narrows your arteries. That limits the flow of oxygen-rich blood to your body.

Atherosclerosis can lead to serious problems, including:

  • Coronary artery disease. These arteries supply blood to your heart. When they are blocked, you can suffer angina or a heart attack.
  • Carotid artery disease. These arteries supply blood to your brain. When they are blocked you can suffer a stroke.
  • Peripheral arterial disease. These arteries are in your arms, legs and pelvis. When they are blocked, you can suffer from numbness, pain and sometimes infections.

Atherosclerosis usually doesn't cause symptoms until it severely narrows or totally blocks an artery. Many people don't know they have it until they have a medical emergency.

A physical exam, imaging, and other diagnostic tests can tell if you have it. Medicines can slow the progress of plaque buildup. Your doctor may also recommend procedures such as angioplasty to open the arteries, or surgery on the coronary or carotid arteries. Lifestyle changes can also help. These include following a healthy diet, getting regular exercise, maintaining a healthy weight, quitting smoking, and managing stress

  4. Other rare causes may be anal cancer, HIV, tuberculosis or herpes. 

Individuals of all age groups can suffer from anal fissures. It is not a very serious problem, and heals on its own in a few weeks. Although it can heal itself, there are certain treatments which can help relieve the pain you get from an anal fissure.

Tantric Sex Positions for Every Man - Blow Her Mind With These Erotic Moves

Tantric Sex Positions for Every Man - Blow Her Mind With These Erotic Moves

To those who are only minimally familiar with the idea of Tantric sex, the term can conjure up images of yoga experts entwined in impossible positions, barely moving for hours on end. However, engaging in Tantric activity is not necessarily reserved for the fit and supple; it can be enjoyed by nearly everyone who is interested in a more sensual experience than a 3-minute romp in the sheets. Tantra can best be described as a spiritual experience involving being in the here and now, rather than pumping away with only the end goal in mind. Couples who try Tantra may find that sexual enjoyment takes on a whole new meaning; for the curious, some simple tips are provided here. Because Tantra is all about sensuality, getting the body ready for the experience can help make it more enjoyable; therefore, some pointers for body and penis care are also given.

Some Tantric sex positions for beginners:

Remember, practicing Tantric sex means being in the moment. With this in mind, these positions should be carried out as a means to fully experience one another on a sensual and spiritual level, without focusing on the final release - which will certainly come when the time is right. Whenever the couple is facing each other, deep eye contact is encouraged to heighten the intimacy of the experience.

The flower blossom - The woman lies on her back and draws her knees up to her breasts. Her feet can be tucked against the man's armpits. She then raises her buttocks and spreads them slightly with her hands, presenting him with an "orchid" for penetration. This position is intensely visual, especially for the male.

The jewel box - In this position, the couple lies facing each other with their bodies closely touching. The women can be underneath, or they can lie side by side, and their legs should touch from thighs to toes. He should hold her close and penetrate from this position.

The long-haired goddess­ - ­The man in this case lies flat on his back, and she mounts him facing away. She then lays back so that her hair is covering his face as he moves in and out of her.

The reverse horsewoman - This position is similar to the long-haired goddess, but the woman sits up with her legs tucked underneath her so that she can control the action. She raises and lowers herself on the man; this loss of control on his part can be highly exhilarating.

Striking - The woman lies on her back on a firm, flat surface with her thighs raised. The man withdraws from her completely, then enters in one, fluid move to penetrate fully inside her. This is repeated as often as desired.
Care for the body and spirit

The sensual experience of Tantra is all about being in the moment, but that doesn't mean that men should skimp on planning ahead. Having a body - and especially a penis - that is clean, supple and receptive to touch is the key to fully enjoying the benefits of Tantra.

In fact, the process of getting clean can be an intimate part of the experience; couples can plan a warm bath together and gently wash every part of each other's bodies before moving into the bedroom. Soft light and music can add to the otherworldly atmosphere they will build before the real physical activity begins.

Men should also care for their penile skin on a regular basis to prevent roughness, irritation, soreness and other issues that can detract from the overall experience. Using a specially formulated penis vitamin creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil) that is enriched with important nutrients, as well as all-natural emollients, can help to build tissue that is receptive to the modulated rhythms of tantric sex.
