Hi. I am asking this question on behalf of my friend. She is worried about her pregnancy. Last month she had oral sex with her boy friend and he fingered her .she said that she is sure that there was no ejaculation by him but she worries that "is there any chance of pregnancy due to pre cum or any other cause" she noticed that her breast size began to increase but no other abnormal things. Is there a possibility of pregnancy?

शतावरी के उपयोग, फायदे व नुकसान - Shatavari Uses, Benefits and Side Effects in Hindi

शतावरी के उपयोग, फायदे व नुकसान - Shatavari Uses, Benefits and Side Effects in Hindi

शतावरी एक वसंत ऋतु का सब्जी है जो कि लिली (लिलीसेए) परिवार के अंतर्गत आता है। प्राचीन काल  में, शतावरी  एक  कामोद्दीपक  के  रूप  में  प्रसिद्ध  था। सदियों पहले, मूत्र प्रवाह बढ़कर गुर्दे को साफ करने और गुर्दे की पथरी को रोकने के लिए इस जड़ी-बूटी का इस्तेमाल रोमनों और यूनानियों द्वारा किया जाता था। तथा एशिया में, शतावरी का उपयोग तंत्रिका संबंधित समस्याओं, खांसी और दस्त के इलाज के लिए किया जाता था। शतावरी एक स्वस्थ पोषक तत्व समृद्ध वनस्पति है जिसमें वसा और कोलेस्ट्रॉल सामग्री नहीं होती है। इसमें बहुत कम कैलोरी और सोडियम हैं। इसमें विटामिन ए, सी, ई, के, बी 6, फोलेट, लोहा, तांबे, कैल्शियम, प्रोटीन, और फाइबर जैसे विटामिन और खनिजों की एक विस्तृत श्रृंखला है। 
 

शतावरी के लाभ:
शतावरी  के  डंठल  आमतौर  पर  एक  सब्जी  के  रूप  में  खाए  जाते हैं। इसकी जड़ें, बीज और अर्क का उपयोग विभिन्न बीमारियों के लिए किया जाता है। शतावरी कई लाभ प्रदान करता है जैसे कि:
1. वजन घटाने के लिए: शतावरी  में केवल  वसा  और  कैलोरी  कम  नहीं  है,  बल्कि  इसमें  बहुत  से  घुलनशील  और  अघुलनशील  फाइबर  शामिल  हैं, यही कारण है कि यह  वजन  कम  करने  का एक  अच्छा  विकल्प  है।
2. मूत्र और गुर्दे के लिए: शतावरी  एक  प्राकृतिक  मूत्रवर्धक  के  रूप  में  कार्य  करता  है। यह अतिरिक्त नमक और तरल पदार्थ को शरीर से निकालने में मदद करता  है। इसलिए यह विशेष रूप से एडिमा और उच्च रक्तचाप से पीड़ित लोगों के लिए अच्छा है।
3. दिल का स्वास्थ्य: शतावरी  में  उत्कृष्ट  विरोधी  भड़काऊ  प्रभाव  और  उच्च  स्तर  एंटीऑक्सिडेंट  हैं,   दोनों  हृदय  रोग  के  जोखिम  को  कम  करने  में  मदद  कर  सकते  हैं।
4. उम्र के बढ़ने को रोकने के लिए: एंटीऑक्सिडेंट  ग्लूटाथियोन   उम्र  बढ़ने  की  प्रक्रिया  को  धीमा  करता है। और फोलेट, संज्ञानात्मक गिरावट को रोकने के लिए बी 12 के साथ काम करता है।
5. स्वस्थ त्वचा के लिए: यह  चेहरे  की  सफाई  के लिए इस्तेमाल  किया  जा  सकता  है। यह त्वचा की समस्याओं जैसे कि घावों और मुँहासे को रोकने और उपचार करने मे मदद करता है। एंटीऑक्सिडेंट ग्लूटाथियोन त्वचा को सूरज की क्षति और प्रदूषण से बचाने में मदद करता है।
6. गर्भावस्था के दौरान: इसमें मौजूद फोलेट  महिलाओं   के लिए  गर्भावस्था   के  शुरुआती  चरणों  के  दौरान  आवश्यक  है। फोलेट भ्रूणों में तंत्रिका-ट्यूब दोषों के जोखिम को कम कर सकता है।
7. कैंसर को रोकने के लिए: शतावरी में उपस्थित सल्फोराफेन कैंसर को रोकने में मदद करता है। शतावरी में बड़ी मात्रा में एंटीऑक्सिडेंट और एंटी-इन्फ्लमाटरीज भी हैं, जो कि कैंसर के जोखिम को कम करने में सहायक हैं।
8. हैंगओवर का इलाज: शतावरी में मौजूद खनिजों और अमीनो एसिड हॉगओवर को कम करने में मदद कर सकते हैं और अल्कोहल में विषाक्त पदार्थों से जिगर की कोशिकाओं को सुरक्षित कर सकते हैं।

इसके अलावा, शतावरी निम्न स्थितियों के उपचार में भी मदद कर सकता है - गठिया या जोड़ों के दर्द, तंत्रिका के दर्द या न्यूरिटिस, अपच तंत्रिका विकार, महिला हार्मोनल असंतुलन, कब्ज, गैस्ट्रिक अल्सर, जिगर संबंधी विकार, कम कामेच्छा, अवसाद, मौसा, उच्च कोलेस्ट्रॉल, एचआईवी संक्रमण, एकाधिक काठिन्य, क्रोनिक थकान सिंड्रोम, उच्च बीपी आदि।
शतावरी के दुष्प्रभाव 
इस जड़ी-बूटि का कोई बड़ा साइड इफेक्ट नहीं है, यहां तक कि बड़ी औषधीय मात्रा में लेने पर भी। हालांकि, बदबूदार मूत्र देने के अलावा त्वचा पर सीधे लगाने पर यह छोटे एलर्जी प्रतिक्रियाओं का नेतृत्व कर सकती है। यह फुफ्फुसीय या फेफड़े से संबंधित एलर्जी संबंधी प्रतिक्रियाओं का कारण बन सकता है जैसे नाक, अस्थमा, खाँसी, गले की समस्या आदि। 
जिन लोगों को प्याज, लहसुन और अन्य संबंधित सब्जियों से एलर्जी है उन्हें शतावरी से बचना चाहिए क्योंकि यह लीलासी परिवार का हिस्सा है।

Hello- You can go for tubal ligation or IUD implantation if your family is complete, if not you can opt from hormonal implants or monthly birth control pills. Since they are hormonal in nature, they have following side effects on health. -Doesn’t protect against STIs (Still need condoms to lower the risk of STIs) -Need to remember to take every day at the same time -Can’t be used by women with certain medical problems or by women taking certain medications -Can occasionally cause side effects such as nausea, increased appetite, headaches, and, very rarely, blood clots.

Fix These 3 Common Posture Blunders that can Permanently Damage Your Body

Fix These 3 Common Posture Blunders that can Permanently Damage Your Body
Improve Your Posture Before it’s too Late

A good posture makes you stand tall. The right body posture is crucial for a healthy and strong, disease-free body. A correct body posture can help to alleviate all kinds of problems that might arise due to the practice of wrong posture such as chronic neck pain, back pain, and headache among others. Here’s how to avoid some of the common posture blunders:

1. Hunchback

You may know that sitting for long hours is bad for your health, but sitting hunched over the computer screen is especially harmful for your spine. When you’re in this posture, the chest muscles of your body tighten causing the top of the spinal column to form a C-shape. This can lead to pain in the back, shoulder and neck. To prevent your spine from curving in this manner, you can do the bhujangasana pose to strengthen your back.

2. Forward head

Likewise, sitting in a stooped manner in front of the computer can cause the problem of forward head and associated neck pain. Performing head nods on a daily basis can provide respite from the ache. For this, move your head towards the neck until your chin touches your neck. Hold on to this position for 5 seconds before going back to your original position. Repeat as needed.

3. Rounded shoulders

Intense training of the chest muscles or typing while not sitting straight can cause your shoulders to swivel forward, leading to rounded shoulders. This can prevent your arms from working at their full capacity while running or hamper your breathing ability while performing strenuous activities. One of the ways that you can fix this postural blunder is by doing some stretching exercises to relax your chest muscles.This workout can be easily done anywhere, as all you need is a doorway. Position your arms against one side of the doorway with your elbows bent at 90 degrees. Then, stretch your chest and shoulder muscles by placing your foot through the doorway. Hold the posture for about 30 seconds Whether your postural problem is mild or severe, it can affect your overall health and performance.

Wrong posture can cause you to experience skeletal system disorders such as kyphosis (outward curving of the spine) or lordosis (inward curving of the spine). If not corrected in time, the wrong body posture can also impact your self-confidence.

If a women is pregnant and she is suffering from pains but the baby is 7 months old. What are the precautions we have to take?

I am assuming you are talking of contraction like pains. She needs to take adequate rest at night about 8 hrs sleep and at least 2 hrs rest in the afternoon. Also she needs to ensure that she has regular bowel habits and has no urinary symptoms. If the pains continue however she should personally see an obstetrician to be safe.

Birth Control - 5 Things You Need To Know!

Birth Control - 5 Things You Need To Know!

Unless you’re planning to have a baby, it is best to employ some form of birth control to have a satisfying and pleasurable sexual relationship. Having an intercourse right after the menstrual cycle is least likely to result in pregnancy, but there is quite a possibility that an accident may happen. The withdrawal method is highly undependable and should be avoided as far as possible. Birth control is available in a number of forms. Condoms, birth control pills, IUDs and birth control shots are the most common methods of birth control. Here are five things you should know about birth control.

  1. Birth control prices vary: Birth control is available in a number of price ranges to suit varying budgets. Condoms are the most budget friendly while IUDs are amongst the most expensive. However, IUDS are effective over a long spell of time while condoms must be used only once. In some cases, your insurance may help pay for birth control. Hence do your research properly before deciding on the type of birth control you would like to use.
  2. Not all birth control protects against STDs: The only type of birth control that can protect against both pregnancy and STDs are condoms. All the other forms of birth control do not protect against the transference of STDs. Spermicides and diaphragms can lower the risk of catching an STD, but do not give full proof protection..
  3. Not just one person needs to be completely responsible for birth control: If you are in a committed relationship, both people have to take full responsibility of birth control. Birth control devices are available for both men and women and hence this is a responsibility that needs to be shared equally. However, if you are not in a committed relationship and have more than one sexual partner, it is best to take responsibility of birth control in your own hands.
  4. There are side effects to most forms of birth control: Any form of birth control that involves hormones will have side effects. Some of the common side effects triggered by birth control are nausea, weight gain or weight loss, mood swings, sore or swollen breasts and lighter or heavier blood flow during menstruation.
  5. No form of birth control is 100% effective: Lastly, you should know that apart from abstaining from sex, no form of birth control is 100% effective. At the same time, you should also know that missing a period is not always a sign of being pregnant as there are various reasons that affect your menstrual cycle. Therefore, it is best to undergo a pregnancy test in case you missed your periods.

What is test tube test? Does it increases the chances of pregnancy? How much it normally costs?

Diploma in Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MBBS

What is test tube test? Does it increases the chances of pregnancy? How much it normally costs?
Test tube test is done to know about the tubes whether tubes are open or not. Through the mouth of uterus a dye is injected into uterus with the help of a plastic catheter, if tubes are open dye spills out in the abdominal cavity. If tubes are partially blocked and dye is pushed with slight force, it does help open the tubes, so it increases the chances of pregnancy as it is done on 5th day of cycle, as soon as the period ends and it is opd procedure, woman can lead a normal life after this test, many cases have reported getting pregnant in the next cycle itself. Tube test is diagnostic & therapeutic.

Hello- In a normal pregnancy, your ovary releases an egg into your Fallopian tube. If the egg meets with a sperm, the fertilized egg moves into your uterus to attach to its lining and continues to grow for the next 9 months. But in up to 1 of every 50 pregnancies, the fertilized egg stays in your Fallopian tube. In that case, it's called an Ectopic pregnancy or a tubal pregnancy. It happens due to weak musculature of uterus and tubes unable to produce a movement to push forward the ovum after fertilization. Improper treatment has lead to the repetition of the condition in your case. I recommend you to start ayurvedic treatment. Medicines improve the musculature potential and it aids the zygote to implant at correct part of the uterus. Normal uncomplicated pregnancy is possible after the treatment.
