I have to suffer from high quality pain at the time of periods. What should I do?

I have to suffer from high quality pain at the time of periods. What should I do?
Hello. We can minimize the pain during menses with diet and medicines (which are safe to take).. Diet: - Calcium is a mineral associated with building healthy bones and teeth. However, it may have some applications in minimizing the harmful effects of menstrual cramping. So,increase your intake by eating low-fat dairy products such as milk, yogurt and cheese or green leafy vegetables. - Your body uses vitamin B-6 to manufacture new red blood cells. When you lose red blood cells via menorrhagia, your body will need more to build new cells. Also, vitamin B-6 is required for your blood sugar to stay at healthy levels. This can help prevent menstrual cramping-related mood swings and fatigue. Vitamin B-6 is found in fortified cereals, bananas, spinach, sunflower seeds, avocados, tomato juice and salmon. - Just as foods can help reduce the symptoms of menstrual cramping and bleeding, foods can aggravate your symptoms. This includes eating excessive amounts of sugar -- such as cakes, cookies and pies. These are known to contribute to water retention, which make you feel bloated and uncomfortable. High-salt content foods -- french fries, pizza and other fried foods --- can also contribute to bloating. Caffeine-containing beverages like tea and coffee should be avoided as they can contribute to headaches, mood swings and trouble sleeping. - If you're craving chocolate, make sure it's over 70 per cent cocoa. This bittersweet treat will help you relax your muscles. - We all know fluids are essential when your body is cramping or bloating. Drinking two to three litres of water during your period is essential. - Tea is an easy way to replace your caffeine craving. Green tea to soothe cramps. now, even though green tea contains caffeine, try decaffeinated green tea instead — but be aware, you may lose some health benefits with a decaf version. Caffeine is another no-no. Drinking lots of coffee or pop during your period can increase higher levels of tension and anxiety. - Avoid anything that can damage your liver should be off the list. So, avoid alcohol. - Red meat, Smart says, is also know to cause stomach upsets and cramps. Medication: Start taking homoeopathic medicines - Mag. Phos. 6x and Colocynthis 200 - every 2 hrly. during the time of menses. And take Five Phos. and Alfaalfa Tonic - thrice daily for 1 month. Revert me back.

Me and my girlfriend had intercourse 2 days ago. 1 day before intercourse she was suffering from vomiting. Whatever food she was eating she has vomited. After intercourse I gave her a unwanted 72 i-pill. She has even vomited 3 hours after taking i- pill. Now my concern is that the i- pill worked or not.

It was wrong to have had intercourse when the girl was having vomiting. On top of it you gave unwanted 72 without getting her treated. You are worried about ipill rather than the girl and her vomiting. Don't worry about pregnancy. Take her to the hospital and get her treated.

Hello, you may take tab dominate 10mg thrice a day for a week and then review your symptoms. For backache you must not take pain killers but opt for hot fomentation and that helps. R regards.

She gave birth to baby child on 3 oct. Delivery was normal and baby also. But she is not having lactation. Milk is not coming. So what to do? This may be dangerous. We also know mother's milk is very important for baby. But unfortunately. It is not. So we are providing powder lactogen milk to baby. Will it be good for baby.

A low fat diet is recommended at the time of menstruation. A fatty diet might increase estrogen production and cause gynae problems.

These hormonal tests are always done on third day of menses. It can not be done on second or fourth day. If you can not do it this month, you can do it next cycle.

Yes. Once babies develop cardiac and renal systems, their kidneys begin to process fetal blood flow and create urine, which is subsequently peed out into the surrounding amniotic fluid. Fetal urine is a big source of amniotic fluid past the first few months of pregnancy! As for where it goes...babies constantly swallow and process amniotic fluid over and over throughout gestation, which means just about every human being has swallowed and digested their own pee. Medical implications of this: one of the causes of polyhydramnios (too much amniotic fluid) is when a baby is unable to swallow. On the other end of the spectrum, oligohydramnios (too little amniotic fluid) can be caused by fetal kidney failure.

Your lh levels are low. I advise you to do meditation for mental strength by doing slow and deep breathing relaxation exercises in the morning. Take proper balanced vegetarian diet. Take 8 to 10 glasses of water daily. Avoid garlic and red chilly and non veg and eggs. Follow this and give feedback.

Hello not getting pregnant after three years of marriage, is a matter of concern. If everything is normal, pregnancy should happen. You should go to an infertility center to rule out some finer or very minor issues. Archana gupta.
