Homeopath,
My wife is 6 months pregnancy. Please tell me good diet for her also suggest me precautions.
Diets at 6 months of pregnancy: 1. Protein: this important nutrient should be a part of her daily diet. However, she should avoid fatty fish and the skin, also meat fat. It is in fact a good idea to avoid too much meat, and especially red meat. 2. Carbohydrates: a portion or two a day of carbohydrates is recommended during pregnancy. But keep in mind that this depends on how much weight she has gained. You should go for: potatoes, pasta, sweet corn, seeds and nuts, oats 3. Dairy products: yoghurt, cheese and milk (for calcium rich diet) 4. Take plenty of fluids 5. Vegetables: beetroot cabbage asparagus spinach carrots pumpkin turnip eggplant/brinjal green beans tomatoes 4. Fruits: bananas, grapes, apples, pears, oranges follow the below diets chart: breakfast 1 cup of low-fat milk 2 pieces of kaak 1 orange snack #1 1 small whole-wheat hotdog bun 2 tbsp peanut butter topped with thinly sliced banana lunch a bowl of mixed salad 1 cup of rice or pasta or 1 medium baked potato 2 cups of stew prepared with meat or chicken, or a piece of grilled fish filet snack #2 4 dried apricots or 3 dates 1 cup of plain yoghurt or fruit flavored yogurt dinner a bowl of vegetable soup cheese or egg sandwich made with brown bread snack #3: 1 glass of low fat milk 1 cup of whole grain breakfast cereals avoid: caffeine and alcoholic drinks undercooked meats and spicy foods non pasteurized cheeses smoking.

Homeopathy for PCOS

MD - Homeopathy, BHMS

Homeopathy for PCOS

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome or PCOS is referred to as a condition that leads to an imbalance in the hormonal levels of women between the ages of 18 to 44. Women suffering from the syndrome develop small cysts in the ovaries. These cysts might disrupt the normal functions of the ovaries resulting in hormonal imbalances. If you suffer from PCOS, the secretion of the male hormone androgen (which is present in a small amount in every female) increases abnormally, thereby causing a significant disruption of the ovulation process and the menstruation cycles.

Causes:

Women suffering from obesity or who have a past history of PCOS in their families are at a higher risk of suffering from the syndrome.

Symptoms:

The symptoms that one might experience along with syndrome are as follows:

  1. Appearances of acne along with the development of excess body and facial hair.

  2. Irregular or no periods.

  3. Problems with conception and infertility.

  4. Intense pain in the pelvic area and severe depression.

Homeopathic Treatment for PCOS:

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is curable with the Homeopathic mode of treatment. Homeopathic treatment for polycystic ovarian syndrome is very safe and free from any side effect.Which Homeopathic medicine is required to extract the disease from its roots varies from case to case. Both the physical and mental spheres of the patient are thoroughly investigated while prescribing the Homeopathic medicine. The complete cure of PCOS is a time-consuming process and it cannot be expected in a few days. It requires complete observation regarding the change of symptoms in the patient and frequent clinical follow-ups. Some of the most beneficial homeopathic remedies for PCOS are:

  1. Sepia – Useful for the symptoms of severe pain in the lower back and abdominal areas along with abnormal menstrual periods.

  2. Apis Mellifica –This homeopathic preparation is effective in relieving the symptoms of severe pain in the ovarian regions along with tenderness in the abdominal and uterine areas caused by PCOS.

  3. Pulsatilla – This medication is very effective in treating symptoms of PCOS such as late and minimal menstrual periods along with rapid mood swings, irritation and a decreased sensation of thirst.

  4. Sulphur – This homeopathic preparation is very useful if there is a presence of severely itchy and painful acne along with other skin related symptoms of PCOS.

  5. Natrum Muriaticum – This homeopathic preparation is useful if you experience significant problems with conception along with irregularity in menstrual cycles, along with an excessive craving for salt in the regular diet, unwillingness towards sunlight exposure, and intense episodes of crying and uncharacteristic shyness.

  6. Graphites – If you are of a stout build or are overweight and regularly suffer from constipation along with PCOS, graphites are one of the best homeopathic medications to relieve symptoms and treat this condition.

These are just a few of the commonly used Homeopathic remedies and are mentioned only to create awareness about the effectiveness of Homeopathic medicines for PCOS. It is not advisable to resort to self-medication for any disease.

Hello, these growth powders are hormone based and can easily interfere with natural hormones in a woman's body and hence the changes, so please stop the supplement now. and wait for menses to regularise naturally.

Although there is no harm in having sex during periods but maintain proper care of hygiene as females are more prone to infections during periods.

I am 26 years old married woman. I have PCOS from last April 2016. I am not ovulating properly. Now I am trying for conceive. Today is my 2nd day of my period. Doctor prescribed me to take Good ova 100 mg 5 capsules from 3rd day of my period to 7th day. I just want to know that after taking Good ova how can I know when I am exactly ovulating? And when I should do intercourse that I can be pregnant?

Hi, I think you can be in contact with your husband every 2 to 3 days. This will lessen the stress of doing intercourse on a particular day and increase the chance of pregnancy. For ovulation, you can monitor your follicles growth by repeated ultrasound and when your follicles is more than 17 to 18 mm, take injection for rupturing the follicles. Take progesterone for next 2 weeks. Do a urine pregnancy test at home after that. You can try like that for 3 to 6 months. Hope I have answered your question. Regards

If you do not want another pregnancy for 3 years, you can go for iucd, or use condoms, I would prefer condoms. If the caesaren has happened due to a non repetative cause, you can very well try for a normal delivery. But if there is an genuine indication, do not resist the decison of your gynec for a caesaren.
