I am 33 years. I have irregular periods problem. I have done all test like thyroid and harmonal test. All reports are normal. Gyne said it is pre menopause syndrome. There is no remedy on this problem. Is it true?

If your periods r irregular, it doesn't mean you're nearing menopause since you're aged 33 only, take ayurvedic medications like asokaristam, sukumara kwatha, chandraprabha tablet, rajapravartini vati, ovarin syrup, consult me private for dosages

I am 37 year old, I got married on 2005 still i am not getting any result of pregnancy, I consult dr's here but not get any result they told me that there is problem in you sperm count will be 0 % after discharge.

Advanced Aesthetics
Ayurveda, Gulbarga
If you and your partner are planning to conceive, you should start taking folic acid before you get pregnant. Folic acid helps to provide the best health outcomes for your baby when it is growing. Taking folic acid daily before and during pregnancy also prevents the occurrence of neural tube defects, such as spina bifida, in your baby. You? re most likely to get pregnant if you have sex within a day or so of ovulation (releasing an egg from the ovary). This is usually about 14 days after the first day of your last period. An egg lives for about 12-24 hours after it? s released. For pregnancy to happen, the egg must be fertilised by a sperm within this time. If you want to get pregnant, having sex every couple of days will mean there? s always sperm waiting in the fallopian tubes to meet the egg when it? s released. Any queries consult privately.

Gestational Diabetes - How It Can Be Treated?

MD - Diabetology, MBBS
Diabetologist, Surat
Gestational Diabetes - How It Can Be Treated?

Women tend to develop high levels of blood sugar during their pregnancy (especially within the 24th and 28th weeks), irrespective of whether they already had suffered from diabetes prior to their pregnancy. However, gestational diabetes, if not taken proper care of, might escalate the risks of developing diabetes in the near future for both the mother and the child, accompanied by complications in pregnancy or labor. Gestational diabetes is usually characterized by mild symptoms such as excessive urge to urinate, excessive thirst, blurred vision and fatigue.

Causes:
Insulin, a hormone produced by the pancreas, allows for the utilization of the glucose for energy. The food consumed is broken down by the digestive tract of the body, converting carbohydrates into glucose before releasing it into the bloodstream. The glucose is then absorbed by the cells to be used as an energy source. Now, at the time of pregnancy, the placenta (organ nourishing the fetus) connecting the baby to the blood supply also produces various other hormones in high levels, for instance, estrogen and human placental lactogen. Most of these hinder the normal functioning of insulin in the cells, hence raising the blood sugar count. With subsequent growth of the baby, the placenta keeps on producing more amounts of such insulin resistant hormones to an extent that they are capable of meddling with the development of the baby.

Treatment:
1. Monitoring the blood sugar count at least four to five times a day and keeping it under control might help to ease the complication.
2. A healthy diet consisting of whole grains, vegetables and fruits in the right proportion and limiting sugar or other highly refined carbs meets the nutrition and fiber requirement of the body. Guard against additional weight gain during pregnancy as that hampers the entire process.
3. Exercise or regular physical activities help to normalize blood sugar level by boosting glucose absorption in the cells. Furthermore, exercises also enhance the sensitivity of the cells towards insulin. This means that only a little amount of insulin production by your body would be enough for the transportation of sugar.
4. Medication, If exercise and diet fall inadequate, insulin injections are often administered to control blood sugar count.
5. Keeping the baby under close observation with the help of repeated ultrasound and other tests to record its growth and development is an essential part of the treatment plan. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

As you r already suffering from pcod, menses can get delayed even with slight change in hormones. You have not mentioned your last menses date. If it is crossed the date by 7 days then urine test to be done and if negative keep repeating every week till you get menses. Myo-inisitol and duphaston have already proven by research to be not effective for treatment of pcod.

Ways to Build Healthy Physical Relationships - शारीरिक संबंध बनाने के तरीके

MBBS, M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Delhi
Ways to Build Healthy Physical Relationships - शारीरिक संबंध बनाने के तरीके

यह अक्सर है कि जोड़ों को अपने रिश्ते में यौन संबंध बनाए रखने पर काम करना पड़ता है। आपका यौन स्वास्थ्य आपके समग्र मानसिक, शारीरिक और भावनात्मक स्वास्थ्य से संबंधित है। 
क्या आप अपने यौन जीवन को बढ़ावा देना चाहेंगे? हो सकता है कि आप अपने साथी के साथ एक मजबूत संबंध को फिर से खोजना चाहते हैं, अपने खुद के यौन आत्म-जागरूकता को गहरा करना चाहते हैं, या बिस्तर में अधिक मजा चाहते हैं। 
चाहे समस्या बड़ी या छोटी हो, आपके यौन जीवन को ट्रैक पर वापस लाने के लिए आप कई चीजें कर सकते हैं। एक अच्छा सेक्स जीवन को बनाए रखने के लिए समय और प्रयास की आवश्यकता होती है। यह हमेशा आसान नहीं होगा - हमारी व्यस्त जीवन शैली थकावट भरी है और अक्सर हमें गति को बनाए रखने के लिए आवश्यक कल्पना और प्रेरणा से रहित छोड़ देती हैं। इसलिए, चीजों को दिलचस्प रखने के लिए आपके यौन जीवन में कुछ और उत्तेजक पहलुओं को जोड़ना महत्वपूर्ण है।

शारीरिक संबंध सुधारने के तरीके
अगर आपको लगता है कि आपके प्रेम जीवन में यौन संबंधों में अचानक कमी आई है, तो आप और आपके साथी के बीच बहुत जरूरी यौन आकर्षण बनाने के लिए, इन युक्तियों का उपयोग करने का समय है:

1. आंखों पर पट्टी का उपयोग करें:
यौन आनंद के कई आयाम हैं, लेकिन हमारे पास सबसे महत्वपूर्ण यौन अंग है हमारा मस्तिष्क। अपने साथी की आंखों पर पट्टी बांधने से उनकी संवेदी जागरूकता बढ़ जाती है। वह नहीं जानते कि आप कहां हैं या आप आगे क्या करने जा रहे हैं, यह बेहतर सेक्स के लिए प्रत्याशा पैदा करता है। संवेदी वस्तुएं, जैसे एक पंख या अपनी जीभ के साथ अपने साथी को छेड़ो। 

2. एक दूसरे की कामुक मालिश:
कामुक स्पर्श सबसे ज्यादा आरामदायक और सेक्सी चीजें हैं जो आप अपने साथी के लिए कर सकते हैं। एक आरामदायक कामुक मालिश उसके शरीर को कुछ बहुत तीव्र संभोग और अंत में बहुत बेहतर सेक्स प्राप्त करने में मदद कर सकती है। उनके इंद्रियों को सचेत लेकिन उनके शरीर को आरामदायक रखने की कोशिश करें।
एक बार जब आप उसकी बड़ी मांसपेशियों - कंधे और पीठ को आराम दे देते हैं, तो उसके नितंबों तक अपना रास्ता बनाएँ। 

3. अपनी कल्पनाओं के बारे में बात करें:
अपने साथी के साथ अपनी कल्पनाओं के बारे में बात करना, सेक्स प्ले का एक बहुत अनुकूल तरीका है। यह आपके साथी के साथ संचार बढ़ता है, जो बहुत महत्वपूर्ण है, साथ ही, यह आपको बेहतर सेक्स के लिए एक-दूसरे को बेहतर तरीके से जानने में भी मदद करता है। 
बेहतर सेक्स के लिए काल्पनिक खेल को एक गेम में शामिल किया जा सकता है। आप उन कल्पनाओं में से कुछ का प्रयास भी कर सकते हैं, जिनके बारे में आप उत्सुक हैं। एक नए स्थान (पिछवाड़े में एक चौराहे पर या अपने घर के एक अलग कमरे में) में अंतरंग होने या एक नई स्थिति की कोशिश करना पर्याप्त हो सकता है। 

4. कुछ चीजों को रोकें:
थोड़े समय के लिए अपनी पुरानी, मानक गतिविधियां निषेध करें। उन यौन गतिविधियों से बचें जो आप दोनो के बीच बहुत आम है। जैसा, अगर आप और आपके साथी मिशनरी स्थिति पर बहुत अधिक निर्भर करते हैं, तो यह नियम बनाएं कि आप एक महीने के लिए मिशनरी स्थिति में सेक्स नहीं कर सकते। यदि आप बहुत अनुशासित हैं, तो एक पूरे हफ्ते चुंबन के अलावा कुछ भी न करने की कोशिश करें।

5. गन्दी बाते करें:
धीरे-धीरे शुरु करें, शायद तटस्थ गन्दी-बाते विषयों के साथ। गंदे बातें पहली बार में थोड़ी कठिन हो सकती हैं, अगर आपको इन बातों को स्पष्ट करने की आदत नहीं है। सकारात्मक शब्दों से चिपकने की कोशिश करें, और आमतौर पर इस्तेमाल किए जाने वाले अपमानित शब्दों को छोड़ दें।

Hello, PCOS or pcod s a problem in which a woman's hormones are out of balance. It can cause problems with your periods and make it difficult to get pregnant. PCOS also may cause unwanted changes in the way you look. If it isn't treated, over time it can lead to serious health problems, such as diabetes and heart disease. The most common symptoms are: Acne.Weight gain and trouble losing weight.Extra hair on the face and body.Thinning hair or even hair loss on scalp.Irregular periods. Often women with PCOS have fewer than nine periods a year. Some women have no periods. Others have very heavy bleeding.Fertility problems. Many women who have PCOS have trouble getting pregnant(infertility), depression. Regular exercise, healthy foods, and weight control are the key treatments for PCOS. Treatment (hormonal) can reduce unpleasant symptoms and help prevent long-term health problems. Try to fit in moderate activity and/or vigorous activity often. Brisk Walking, jogging, dance or aerobics are great exercise that most people can do.Eat heart-healthy foods. This includes lots of vegetables, fruits, nuts, beans, and whole grains. It limits foods that are high insaturated fat, such as meats, cheeses, and fried foods.Most women who have PCOS can benefit from losing weight. Even losing 5kg may help get your hormones in balance, regulate your menstrual cycle and can make you ovulate.

8 Surprising Reasons Why You Should Exercise Regularly

MD - Bio-Chemistry, MBBS
General Physician, Ahmedabad
8 Surprising Reasons Why You Should Exercise Regularly

Some of the advantages of exercising regularly are known to all and these include weight loss and better blood circulation. However, the benefits of exercise aren’t just limited to the obvious. A few other not so obvious as well as a few surprising reasons are mentioned as follows.

  1. Corrects your posture: Having a good posture is much more than just aesthetics. A good or bad posture determines your overall health in many ways. Having bad posture may result in localized problems, such as spinal deformities and vertigo among others and may also lead to muscles loss over a prolonged period. Exercising helps in improving your posture by strengthening bones and muscles in your back as well as the spine.

  2. Improves memory: One of the not so obvious benefits of exercising is that it improves your memory. The connection may not seem so obvious, but exercising also improves blood circulation and supply of oxygen to all the body parts including the brain, which results in better memory.

  3. Helps maintain and improve the immune system: The immune system within your body helps fight all the intruders and toxins that may cause an infection or illness. Exercising not only helps to maintain it, but boost it as well. As a result, you will fall sick less often and your immunity will stay strong even as you age.

  4. Ensures your bones remain strong: Bone loss and other related disorders are a fact of life and become more pronounced as you age. However, exercising can curb the rate of decay and help in making your bones stronger. It is important to know that bone strengthening exercises are not the same for all ages and they need to be adapted as per the requirement.

  5. Helps you have better sex: Exercising will help improve your blood circulation, muscle mass, mood and will keep you active. The endocrine glands are forced to work harder to produce hormones to maintain muscle mass and this also contributes to better sexual functioning. Exercising will help keep your sex drive high and help you have better sex by keeping you fit.

  6. Ensures better sleep: Many of the sleep related disorders caused in the body are due to inactivity and lack of physical exertion. Once you start exercising, the physical exertion will help you get to sleep and also regulate your circadian rhythm or daily sleep and wake cycles.

  7. Reduces stress and anxiety: Exercising releases endorphins which help improve your mood and help in reducing stress and anxiety. This in turn can help reduce hypertension and blood pressure, thus helping in controlling other related disorders.

  8. Builds confidence: Exercising will improve your overall appearance and thus, help you have more confidence due to a better body image. However, it also helps by making you feel accomplished as you incrementally push your physical limits while exercising. This will spill over into every aspect of your life and help you be successful or deal with failure better. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.

Computed Tomography - What You Need To Know About it?

DNB (Radio Diagnosis), MBBS
Radiologist, Hyderabad
Computed Tomography - What You Need To Know About it?

What is computed tomography?

Computed Tomography is more commonly known as CT scan. It is a specialized form of X-ray. Computed Tomography is a non-invasive diagnostic procedure. CT scan provides concise images of different body parts and can also divulge any internal bleeding or injury during emergency situations. It is absolutely painless and is known to provide accurate information.

How does it work?
The patient is required to lie down on a table which is then passed through an opening, circular in structure. The radiations are rotated inside the CT scan machine for processing the images of the required body parts.

Benefits of Computed Tomography

  1. Computed Tomography helps in the identification of any benign (tumor) or malignant (cancer) growth in any part of your body.
  2. The procedure can be conducted for different body parts such as the head, abdomen, spine and chest among many others.
  3. The images provide much detailed information. It contains information regarding the condition of blood vessel, soft tissue and bones.
  4. Various bones and muscular disorders are also identified via Computed Tomography.
  5. Radiation therapy or biopsy can be carried out with the aid of Computed Tomography.

Risk factors associated with Computed Tomography

  1. If a person is allergic to Iodine (a dye used in the process), then it must be informed to the doctor beforehand to avoid further complications such as itching, nausea or vomiting.
  2. At times, kidney functions may get disrupted.
  3. The radiation emitted during CT scan is known to be harmful, especially for children.
  4. The dye used for conducting CT scan can cause allergic reaction that can be life-threatening.

At times the doctor may advise anti-allergic drugs to patients who are allergic to the dyes used in the process. CT scan is otherwise a very safe procedure for diagnosing various diseases.
