Dear, do not be stressed. There might be a chance of a missed abortion. Please undergo a proper ultrasound (not tvs) doctor has prescribed progesterone considering the possibility that you may have conceived and progesterone will help in retaining the embryo. Nevertheless ultrasound will give a clear picture. Best of luck.

Hi, abdominal binder is definitely not a perfect solution of" pregnancy pouch. Breast feeding, diet control & exercise has major role to get back near normal shape. Breast feeding burn extra calories and also trigger muscular contractraction. Making it a workout for the whole body. Exercise has a good option to reduce belly but it must be with doctor's consent & under expert supervision in post caesarean cases. Control diet means to choose proper diet according to individual body needs diet must be rich in protein & fiber but low in fat and calories. But don't go on a severe diet as it will affect breast feeding and will put the body in starvation mode so will ultimately affect the health of baby and mother both. So don't panic and go slow and take care of health.

6 Easy Ways to Give Your Sex Life a New Dimension in 2016

6 Easy Ways to Give Your Sex Life a New Dimension in 2016
6 Unexpectedly easy ways to give your sex life a whole new dimension

New Year is a good the time for new beginnings. At times our sex lives needs to be revived too. After a few years together, a couple’s sex life may begin to stagnate. A boring sex life can negatively impact your relationship as well. But by employing some very easy tricks in the bedroom, you can bring back the passion and add spark to your life.
Can’t figure out where to start? Here are 6 tips and tricks to help you out.

1. Be spontaneous: One of the main reasons a couple’s sex life dwindles is because they fall into a routine. Whether it’s the position you choose, or the sequence of events- right from foreplay to the actual intercourse- every couple has their own set routine. Break this monotony and try out new positions that can greatly enhance your pleasure. Also, try having sex somewhere else in the house that you haven’t before to spice things up.

2. Don’t be shy: Sex is one of the most intimate acts you can share with someone. However, sometimes you may find yourself being unable to open up to your partner about what gets you in the mood. This can make sex an unfulfilling experience. Try telling your partner what you’d like him/her to do. You might end up discovering that both of you share a common fantasy you hadn’t spoken about before.

3. Explore all erogenous zones: There are a lot of erogenous zones on a man and woman’s body. Take your time and get to know every single one of them. If you don’t know where they are, explore your partner’s body and see what turns him/her on and where. This is a great exercise that also sets the foundation for more fulfilling sex in the future.

4. Experiment with your lingerie: Clothes can be a turn on or a turn off depending on what you wear. Try experimenting with your lingerie. A host of options are available out there for both men and women. These days you can even buy edible lingerie on leading online shopping sites. Choose bright shades like red, as they’ve been proven to increase arousal.

5. Play around with sex toys: Introducing sex toys in your bedroom can prove to be very stimulating as well as exciting for both you and your partner. Sex toys come in all shapes and sizes, for both men and women. You can take your pick from vibrators and vibrating rings, handcuffs, etc; even lubricants and gels can be used to enhance pleasure and make sex more exciting.

6. Shave your pubic hair: Another way to give your sex life a whole new dimension, shaving off your pubic hair can increase the sensitivity in your genitals making sex a more pleasurable experience. Besides, for many shaved genitals have a visual appeal and cause intense arousal, which is very important when it comes to having a satisfying sex life.

Super Fact of the Day: Your baby may be born with a tooth!

Super Fact of the Day: Your baby may be born with a tooth!
Yes, you read that right; sometimes a baby is born with a regular tooth, although the odds are low (1 in 2000). It erupts as an extra tooth, which generally falls off before a new set of choppers starts growing.

Health Benefits Of Apple

M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Gurgaon
Health Benefits Of Apple

1. Get whiter, healthier teeth

An apple won't replace your toothbrush, but biting and chewing an apple stimulates the production of saliva in your mouth, reducing tooth decay by lowering the levels of bacteria.

2. Curb all sorts of cancers

Scientists from the American Association for Cancer Research, among others, agree that the consumption of flavonol-rich apples could help reduce your risk of developing pancreatic cancer by up to 23 percent. Researchers at Cornell University have identified several compounds 'triterpenoids'in apple peel that have potent anti-growth activities against cancer cells in the liver, colon and breast. Their earlier research found that extracts from whole apples can reduce the number and size of mammary tumours in rats. Meanwhile, the National Cancer Institute in the U.S. has recommended a high fibre intake to reduce the risk of colorectal cancer.

3.Decrease your risk of diabetes

Women who eat at least one apple a day are 28 percent less likely to develop type 2 diabetes than those who don't eat apples. Apples are loaded with soluble fibre, the key to blunting blood sugar swings.

4.Reduce cholesterol

The soluble fibre found in apple binds with fats in the intestine, which translates into lower cholesterol levels and a healthier you.

5.Control your weight

Many health problems are associated with being overweight, among them heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes and sleep apnea. To manage your weight and improve your overall health, doctors recommend a diet rich in fibre. Foods high in fibre will fill you up without costing you too many calories.

Aapke uterus me soojan ya infection aur aap anaemic bhi ho sakti hain. Complete check up karwana ek achhi baat hai. Mera ye suggestion hai ki abhi aap conceive karne ki na sochen. Pahle anaemia, pain, soojan, infection aadi ka treatment zaroor kar len. Iske liye ayurveda's aartav shuddhi procedure karen (yeh ek non invasive, non surgical, non toxic, safe and natural herbs ke decoction sewan karne ka procedure hai). Female friendly herbs jaise rodhra, ashoka, nagarmotha, root of vasa, daruhaldi aadi ke dwara banaya jane wal kadha peene se anaemia, uterine infection, inflammation, cramps aadi door ho jaye hain. M. C. Regular hota hai. Ovulation achha hota hai. Ovarian functions me sudhar hota hai. Santaan bhi swasth paida hoti hai (husband ke'veerya poshan ka bhi dhyan rakhen to shartiya santan barhia paida hogi). Isliye aapko advise hai ki aap 2 se 4 month me ye awashya kar len aur phir swasth mann se sambhog karen aur achhi generation payen. God bless u.
