I am 19 years old. I had sex in august. Unprotected twice and protected once. After the protected sex I took a pill. My period ran late by a week. I drank coriander water for two days and on the fourth day I had my periods. The first two days it was normal and on the third day it ceased. Now I still did not get my period. I took three pregnancy tests and all say it is negative. What do I do?

Hello, if bleeding continues it simply means that products of concession are still present and endometrium is still thick and decidua is not completely evacuated. So you can use antifibrinolytics to stop bleeding and repeat ultrasound after a week, if et is more than 8mm then a d&c would have to be done.

I am a 26 years old unmarried girl. I am suffering from PCOS since 2009. I have tried various allopathic and homeopathic treatments but the problem kept coming back once the medicines stopped. I am currently taking Patanjali medicines: Kanchnar Guggul, Dashmularishta, street Rasayan Vati, Punarvadi Mandoor, Udramrit Vati. I have been taking these medicines since the last 3 months but there has only been a marginal improvement. I am also fed up of not being able to loose weight. Is the above course of treatment right?

I am getting white discharge with light bleeding after 3 days of my due date. Am I pregnant.

I am getting white discharge with light bleeding after 3 days of my due date. Am I pregnant.
Hi, thank you for your question. The only way to know if you are pregnant is to do a urine pregnancy test with an early morning sample of your urine. If your period is delayed by 7 days or more it is reasonable to do a pregnancy test. Since it is only 3 days it is ok if you wait for a few more days to see if your period comes. It is very common for periods to vary in duration length and frequency throughout your reproductive life. If your discharge is smelly or stains your underwear or causes itching or burning it may be an infection that you need to get checked out. Often when there is an infection you can get a discharge as well as unscheduled bleeding. If in doubt it is better to get examined and treated. The best doctor for this is your regular gynaecologist. Alternatively a doctor specialising in skin and dvd can also help to treat an infection that you may be concerned about. Best wishes.

It is herpes simplex labialis. It is recurrent, it means, it keeps on occuring agai and again. It is also known as cold sores. What Is Recurrent Herpes Simplex Labialis? Recurrent herpes simplex labialis, also known as oral herpes, is an infection of the mouth area caused by the herpes simplex virus. It’s a common and contagious infection that spreads easily. The infection causes blisters and sores on the lips, mouth, tongue or gums. After an initial infection, the virus stays dormant inside the nerve cells of the face. Later on in life, the virus can reactivate and result in more sores. The herpes is recurrent when this happens. These are commonly known as cold sores or fever blisters. Recurrent herpes simplex labialis is usually not serious, but relapses are common. Many people choose to treat the recurrent episodes with over-the-counter creams. The symptoms will usually go away without treatment in a few weeks. A doctor may prescribe medications if relapses occur often. Herpes simplex labialis is the result of a virus called herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1). The initial infection usually occurs before age 20. It typically affects the lips and areas around the mouth. You can get the virus from close personal contact with someone who has the virus. You can also get oral herpes from touching objects where the virus may be present. These include towels, utensils, razors for shaving, and other shared items. After the first infection, the virus lays dormant inside the nerve cells of the face for the rest of a person’s life. This means that symptoms aren’t always present. However, certain events can make the virus reawaken and lead to a recurrent herpes infection. Events that trigger a recurrent infection of oral herpes might include: fever menstruation a high-stress event fatigue hormonal changes upper respiratory infection extreme temperature a weakened immune system recent dental work or surgery Simplex Labialis Treatment You can’t get rid of the virus itself. Once infected, HSV-1 will remain in your body forever, even if you don’t have recurrent episodes. Symptoms of a recurrent episode usually go away within one to two weeks without any treatment. The blisters will usually scab and crust over before they disappear. At-Home Care Applying ice or a warm cloth to the face or taking a pain reliever like acetaminophen might help to reduce any pain. Some people choose to use over-the-counter skin creams. However, these creams usually only shorten an oral herpes relapse by one or two days. Medication You may take oral antiviral medicines such as acyclovir, famciclovir, or valacyclovir under medical supervision to fight the virus. These medicines work better if you take them when you experience the first signs of a mouth sore, such as tingling on the lips, and before the blisters appear. These medications don’t cure herpes and may not stop you from spreading the virus to other people. For cases of recurrent herpes simplex labialis that result in frequent mouth sores, your doctor may advise you to use the medication all the time. Preventing the Spread of Herpes The following tips may help prevent the infection from reactivating or spreading. Wash any items that may have had contact with the infected sores, like towels, in boiling water after use. Don’t share food utensils or other personal items with people who have oral herpes. Don’t share cold sore creams with anyone. Don’t kiss or participate in oral sex with someone who has cold sores. To keep the virus from spreading to other parts of the body, don’t touch the blisters or sores. If you do, wash your hands with soap and water immediately. Long-Term Outlook Symptoms usually go away within one to two weeks. However, the cold sore episodes can frequently return. The rate and severity of the sores usually diminish as you get older. Infections near the eye or in immune-compromised individuals can be serious. You should see your doctor in these cases.

Alcohol is a source of empty calories. (100 Kcal/30 ml). Along with alcohol, one consumes lots of junk foods as well. Beer is consumed in high amounts. So ultimately total calorie consumption at one meal is very high. Since the body cannot utilise this, remaining is converted to fats. Men, due to their body composition, have lower tendency to store fat in arms/legs/ thighs/hips. Most of the fat is stored in their belly & blood vessels thus increasing the risk of diabetes mellitus type 2, heart disease & hypertension. Also, alcohol causes liver damage leading to cirrhosis & death. Alcohol also causes malnutrition. Smoking also increases susceptibility to heart disease, hypertension & stroke. He might be already suffering from these problems. I strongly recommend liver function test, lipid profile, blood glucose (fasting, PP), BP, ECG. Diet & lifestyle modification, regular physical exercise needs to be started immediately. He needs to stop taking beer & cigarettes. Red wine (1 -2 glass max at a time) & NRT (nicotine replacement therapy) are better options to replace beer & cigarettes.

Body pains are common for some women just before the periods. If her periods are delayed beyond 17/7, she can do a pregnancy test at home. Sorry, we cannot prescribe natural ways of abortion.

जायफल
स्‍वास्‍थ्‍य की कई समस्‍याओं का हल

अनिंद्रा भगाए -
जायफल अनिंद्रा भगाता है। अगर आप रोज रात को गरम दूध में जायफल का पाउडर डाल कर पीते हैं तो आपको अच्‍छी नींद आएगी।

प्रतिरोधक क्षमता बढाए-
भोजन में जायफल मिलाने से स्‍वाद के साथ साथ शरीर की रोग प्रतिरोधक क्षमता भी बढती है। इसमे बहु सारा मिनरल होता है और इसके अलावा पोटैशियम, कैल्‍शियम, आयरन और मैगनीशियम पाया जाता है।

चेहरे की झुर्रियां मिटाए -
थोड़ा सा जायफल पाउडर पानी या शहद के साथ मिला कर पेस्‍ट बनाया जाए और चेहरे पर लगाया जाए तो चेहरा बिल्‍कुल साफ हो जाता है और कुछ ही दिनों में चमकने लगता है। इससे पिंपल के दाग भी साफ होते हैं।

शीघ्रपतन और नपुंसकता दूर करे -
जायफल को घिस कर दूध में मिलाकर हफ्ते में तीन दिन पीने से नपुंसकता की बीमारी दूर होती है। यौन शक्ति बढ़ाने के लिए भी इसका इस्तेमाल किया जाता है। इसके चूर्ण और तेल को शीघ्रपतन दूर करने में उपयोग में लिया जाता है।

दांत दर्द -
जायफल का तेल दांत दर्द में बहुत लाभकारी है, तभी तो आपने देखा होगा कि ज्‍यदातर टूथपेस्‍ट में दालचीनी और जायफल मिलाया जाता है।

दिमाग तेज करे-
जायफल दिमाग को भी बहुत तेज बनाता है। इसको खाने से आपको कभी एल्‍जाइमर यानी भी भूलने की बीमारी नहीं होगी।
प्राचीन काल के दौरान, रोमन और ग्रीक सभ्यता जायफल का इस्‍तेमाल ब्रेन टॉनिक के रूप में करते थे। ऐसा इसलिए होता था क्‍योंकि जायफल प्रभावी ढंग से मस्तिष्क को उत्तेजित कर सकता हैं। नतीजतन, यह थकान और तनाव को खत्म करने में मदद कर सकता हैं।

पाचन तंत्र दुरुस्‍त करे-
सदियों से जायफल का इस्‍तमाल पाचन तंत्र को ठीक करने के लिये प्रयोग किया जाता आ रहा है। तो ऐसे में सूप में स्‍वाद बढाने के लिये और स्‍वस्‍थ्‍य पेट रखने के लिये जायफल जरुर मिलाएं।

दूध हजम करे -
शिशु का दूध छुड़ाकर ऊपर का दूध पिलाने पर यदि दूध पचता न हो तो दूध में आधा पानी मिलाकर, इसमें एक जायफल डालकर उबालें। इस दूध को थोडा ठण्डा करके कुनकुना गर्म, चम्मच कटोरी से शिशु को पिलाएं, यह दूध शिशु को हजम हो जाएगा।

पेट दर्द सही करे-
पेट में दर्द हो, आद्यमान हो तो जायफल के तेल की 2-3 बूंद शकर में या बताशे में टपकाकर खाने से फौरन आराम होता है।
अगर आप पाचन संबंधी समस्याओं जैसे दस्त, कब्ज, सूजन और पेट फूलना आदि से पीड़ित हैं तो जायफल प्रभावी रूप से आपको राहत प्रदान कर सकता हैं। जायफल का तेल आंतों से अधिक गैस निकाल कर पेट दर्द से राहत देता है। जायफल के सेवन से भूख न लगने की समस्‍या से भी निजात पाई जा सकती है।

जोड़ों का दर्द सही करे-
शरीर के जोड़ों में दर्द होना गठिया यानी सन्धिवात रोग का लक्षण होता है। गठिया के अलावा चोट, मोच और पुरानी सूजन के लिए जायफल और सरसों के तेल के मिलाकर मालिश करने से आराम होता है। इसकी मालिश से शरीर में गर्मी आती है, चुस्ती फुर्ती आती है और पसीने के रूप में विकार निकल जाता है।

नेत्र ज्‍योति बढ़ाए-
अगर आपकी आंखे लगातार कमजोर हो रही हैं तो आपके लिए जायफल बहुत फायेदमंद साबित हो सकता है। इसके लिए पत्थर पर पानी के साथ जायफल को घिसकर लेप तैयार कर लें। इस लेप को आंखों की पलकों पर और आंखों के चारों तरफ लगाने से आंखों की रोशनी बढ़ती है।

Antibiotics are not very good for health. It kills harmful as well as beneficial bacteria in our body. It supresses the immune response. Better fr you to go for homoeopathic treatment. It will cure all your problem. Taking one molecule for long can make you resistant to that molecule alsoo. Soo try to avoid it. If you want you can contact me through Lybrate.

Does taking Levonorgestrel right after periods cause the next period to start before it's time? For example my periods ended on Tuesday this week and I had unprotected sex this Saturday night (after 5 days of last period ending), so if I take Levonorgestrel on Sunday then will my next due periods start so quickly again? Will they start within the 10-15 days of my last periods? Is this to worry about?
