What should I do to reduce stomach fat after pregnancy?

BHMS
Homeopath,
Here are some moves that will help you get your body ready for regular exercise. 1. Walking Why It?s Good For You: It may not sound like much of a workout, but walking is one of the simplest ways to ease into a fitness routine after giving birth. How It?s Done: Start with an easy stroll. Eventually you?ll work your way up to a pumped-up power walk. But a gentle walk can still do wonders for you and your body, especially in the beginning. Bringing baby along in a front pack will add extra weightthat can increase the benefits. For a variation, try walking backward or walking in a zigzag pattern to help keep your muscles guessing. You should not include baby in this activity until you've mastered it and are certain of your balance.

Hello, though there is no direct relation between fish / fish products and menstruation but high cholesterol foods can actually cause increased insulin resistance and can make the cycle irregular. So if you are affected by fish products then you should be avoiding their usage.

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 5 kg may help get your hormones in balance, regulate your menstrual cycle and can make you ovulate.

Hello, Do a urine pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy. If the result is positive then consult a gynaecologist for further evaluation and management. If the result is negative there is nothing to worry about and wait for your periods to come.

I am 19,BT I don't have any improvement in my breast growth,can u suggest me the medicine,which is available in medical stores

DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology)
Gynaecologist, Bangalore
There is no medicine for enlargement of breasts. Surgical cosmetic procedures are available. But you do not need to undergo any such procedures. Remember that small breasts are not a problem either for your sex life or breast feeding after childbirth. Do not think so much about this, have a realistic sense of your body image. Relax, you are beautiful the way you are.

40 days is the time for internal organs to come back to normal size, uterus before delivery though it reaches the levels after 10 days but elasticity is not like before. Reason 6 weeks after a normal delivery is called post partum period. The woman is most sensitive, including mind and body. If she continues to feed the baby, uterus becomes normal soon. Bleeding is for first 10 days as red fresh blood, slowly it changes color to brown and then becomes yellow discharge. But bleeding fresh after 10 days needs to be investigated for retention of some piece of placenta/ membranes. Do observe for few days more, if it is just spotting, ignore it. Remember that she can get infected too during this phase. Do tell her to feed the baby. Not to take heavy supplements like dates, jeera, heeng, perinorm tablets, unknown ayurvedic products for feeding. Eat a high protein diet like milk and curds. Avoid heavy physical work.

Dear lybrate-user, norethisterone is not a contraceptive pill. She can get pregnant on those medications. She should be taking oral contraceptive pills ie. Pregnancy avoiding pills.

Air Pollution Attack - Is India Really on Red Alert? + How to Safeguard Yourself!

M.D Physician
General Physician, Delhi
Air Pollution Attack - Is India Really on Red Alert? + How to Safeguard Yourself!
5 Simple and Natural Ways You can Overcome the Effects of Air Pollution

In a recently conducted study, New Delhi scored an alarming 294 on the Air Quality Index (A unit that measures the rate of air pollution on a scale of 0-500, with higher numbers indicating very poor quality of air). The score revealed that the entire population of the capital city is living under a warning zone, where the adverse impacts of such high levels of air pollution can lead to serious health problems such as asthma, coronary artery disease and other chronic issues. However, rising air and smoke pollution seem to be a recent trend not only in New Delhi, but also in the rest of India. In fact, out of the world’s top 20 most polluted cities, 13 are from India!

In lieu of these grave statistics, it is important to be aware about the ways to safeguard ourselves from the hazards of air pollution. You can protect yourself from the risks of respiratory and cardiac problems, cancer, low-immunity related issues and lung problems, if you follow these 5 simple steps:

1. You can use an N95 mask
The N95 mask is a protective respiratory mask, designed specifically to filter airborne particles. It may prevent you from inhaling minute particles that the air carries by acting as a protective barrier. Its name, N95, stands for the 95 per cent of very small test particles that the respirator has been designed to block. It can significantly reduce your risk of contracting respiratory illnesses. Simply wear this mask over your nose and mouth while travelling.You can easily purchase this device at your local pharmacy or at certain popular online stores.

2. Avoid travelling during the hours of heavy pollution
Traffic blocks, which tend to spike air pollution levels, are common during office hours in metropolitans and megacities. To guard yourself from the harmful impact of fuel and smoke emissions, you can choose to travel either just before the office rush hour starts or after it’s over.

3. Breathe in the fresh morning air
If you open the windows of your home every morning, it encourages the flow of fresh air. This allows all the settled dust particles and indoor pollutants to ventilate, thereby decreasing the level of pollutants in your home. This way you can breathe in fresh and pure air as it is less contaminated during the early hours of the morning. Also, you can try placing an air purifier at home as it may trap contaminants through its replaceable filter, ensuring the quality of air you breathe in at home is healthy and free of pollutants.

4. Exercise at the right time
If you work out at the time of day when pollution levels are high, polluted air is drawn into your lungs at a higher rate since cardio-vascular exercises entail heavy and deep breathing. So it’s a good idea to pick your workout time wisely. Just after sunrise is an ideal time since the pollution levels are the lowest.

5. Consume foods and beverages rich in antioxidants
Researchers have found that vitamin C deficiency may cause breathing and immunity-related problems. Regular consumption of berries, tomatoes, carrots, broccoli, apples, plums, green tea, oranges, pomegranates, and lemon among other foods may help you in naturally overcoming health impacts of air and smoke pollution. These foods and beverages can help your body build a strong immune system. They may also prove to be powerful antioxidants that help prevent the onset of respiratory diseases.

Although these methods do not entirely curb the ill-effects of air pollution and smoke, they do go a long way in significantly preventing the impacts of air pollutants on your health. So adopt them to the maximum extent you can for a healthier lifestyle.

If your cycle is regular then the only safe period is 1 week before period date. Example period date is 1st oct then sex in a week of 25 sept to 1 is safe.
