Patience is the key. It took nine months for your tummy muscles to stretch to accommodate a full-term baby. So it makes sense that it can take that long, or longer, to tighten up again. The speed and degree of this tightening up depends on a few factors, including: • What shape and size you were before you conceived your baby. • How much weight you gained during pregnancy. • How active you are. • Something you can't do anything about: your genes. You may find it easier to shed the weight if: • You gained less than 13.6kg and exercised regularly during pregnancy. • You breastfeed. • This is your first baby. NOTE you shouldn't aim to be back to your pre-pregnancy weight until about six months after your baby's birth.

Lybrate-user, birth control pills taken for a long time, at times inhibits or delays the natural conception process. There can be many reasons for a delay in conception. Please rule out such causes like pcod, hormonal imbalance, uterine fibroids etc. With an ultrasound of the abdomen and complete hormonal assay. Though 8 months is not a very long period, but still these investigations should be carried out. Infertility can be treated excellently with homoeopathy. These medicines have no side effect and are extremely effective.

If it is hemorrhagic cyst, it is likely to resolve with or without medications. Wait for a couple of months and rescan again. Generally it is not the cause of recurrent abortions like in your case. Did you do tests like thrombophilia profile? recurrent abortions require a detailed workup and at times the cause may still be difficult to know. Most of the times there is no problem with conception and only fetal growth is the issue.

Hellow lybrate-user, it's natural that few times menses gets delayed or coming early (3 to 4 days). please have no worries about it. Take a healthy diet in your routine. Eat fresh fruits on daily basis. A mild exercise of 15 mins regularly. All these things will help to maintain overall physical health. Hope this answers your question. Feel free to consult us for any query and further treatment guidelines. Thank you.

I am 17 years old my breasts are paining when I sleep facing the bed wn my breasts get pressed its paining and even if I touch or press them its paining wt should I do?

DGO, MBBS
Sexologist,
Breast pain breast pain is a common problem if it occurs before periods, because it happens due to hormonal changes, however if the pain stays all through the month or if you can feel some lump/swelling then you may need to do ultrasound examination of breasts. But your pain seems to be due to pressure so try to change sleeping position with the help of a side pillow.

Facing Problems in Pregnancy? Know How Ayurveda Can Help You!

Facing Problems in Pregnancy? Know How Ayurveda Can Help You!

Pregnancy is a life altering experience for all expecting mothers. During the gestation period, each and every cell of a woman’s body undergoes a full transformation. There needs to be perfect harmony between the various aspects of the woman and her baby’s health for the pregnancy to progress smoothly. Any imbalance, however, can lead to a range of problems that will require special care. 

Ayurveda is one of the most effective kinds of therapies that help deal with problems of pregnancy. During this period, using Ayurveda to support your health could be most helpful for the development of your baby. Ayurveda will help you effectively deal with all kinds of pregnancy complications such as high blood pressure, fluid retention, spotting, etc. 

Following are some of the ways in which you can use Ayurveda to deal with all the various problems of pregnancy:

  1. Ayurvedic herbal massages: Opting for a daily Ayurvedic massage with herbal oils can induce well-being in both mother and child. These have a very positive impact on the sensory nervous system and you feel calmn during the period of gestation. 
  2. Dealing with morning sickness: Morning sickness is a common pregnancy problem and in Ayurveda, it is known as Garbhini Charddi. There are many Ayurvedic remedies for morning sickness which include matala rasayana (10 grams of it is to be mixed with honey and consumed twice a day), eladi vati (an Ayurvedic medication that helps relieve cough, vomiting and cold), eladi choorna (with elaichi as one of its important ingredients, this Ayurvedic concoction is used to treat indigestion, vomiting and excessive thirst), etc.
  3. Balancing the vata: According to Ayurvedic principles, the growth of the foetus is aided by the energies known as apana vata and prana vata which fulfil the needs of the pregnancy. It is important to maintain a good balance between these vata for dealing with all the problems that come with pregnancy. The simplest way to do this is to adhere to a healthy and wholesome Ayurvedic diet and avoid all foods that cause harm to the system.

These are just a few examples of dealing with pregnancy related problems with the help of Ayurveda. The most important aspect of Ayurveda is that is treats all the problems at the very root and provides a holistic remedy. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ayurveda.

Hiv is not the only sexually transmitted disease, there are many others, get the whole std screen as well as check for blood groups and thalessemia traits if you are looking forward to have a long term relationship or tying the knot.

On around 10-13 days of my periods I noticed bloody vaginal discharge. It stopped later. But since few days I feel pain and discomfort in left side of my vagina. What can it be due to? I am unmarried.

Around 14-15 days aftrr periods a woman ovulates, a little blood trickles out aftr that from the ovary trickles into fallopian tube and may drip thru uterus to vagina, midmenstrual bloody discharge is therefore normal, signifies ovulation. About the left vagina pain, that needs a gynae checkup.

Hi you can do abortion. First of all you do one usg scan for early pregnancy to see the location of pregnancy, weather its intra uterine or extra uterine. If its shows that its intra uterine pregnancy than you have to take mtp kit. Its total 5 tablets course 1+4, after that you will experienced bleeding which will continue for 7-10 days. In 95% case mtp kit is successful and you will abort completely. After 10 days you have to do repeat usg pelvis to see weather you had aborted completely or not. This is the solution for your concern thanks.
