Hi lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. Candid v gel can be used inside the vagina. However it would be best to get it checked by a gynaecologist for proper evaluation and treatment. All the best.

Hello doctors Is suryanamskar is helpful in infertility. Is doing suryanamskar safe during period?

Hello doctors Is suryanamskar is helpful in infertility. Is doing suryanamskar safe during period?
Basically surya namaskar gets all the muscles of your body tuned to some activity and if done in wee hours of morning facing the sun,the entire system gets rejuvenated with positive energy and vigour.During periods it's safe as there are no lower abs muscles involved as such,yes you might get into some discomfort owing to bleeding and padding,so even if you skip it for those 3 to 4 days it doesn't interrupts your excercing schedule.

Important Tips for Pregnant Women in Hindi - गर्भवती महिलाओं के लिए खास टिप्स

Important Tips for Pregnant Women in Hindi - गर्भवती महिलाओं के लिए खास टिप्स

यदि आप गर्भवती होने के बारे में सोच रहे हैं - या आप गर्भवती हैं - तो आप शायद खुद की और बच्चे की देखभाल करने के बारे में मूलभूत जानकारी रखते होंगे। धूम्रपान न करें, शराब न पीएँ, उचित आराम प्राप्त करें। यहां अन्य सुझाव दिए गए हैं- विटामिन से लेकर व्यायाम तक, जो एक सुरक्षित और स्वस्थ गर्भावस्था सुनिश्चित करने में मदद कर सकता है।
1. अपने चिकित्सक या दाई से जल्द से जल्द मिलें: जैसे ही आप पाते हैं कि आप गर्भवती हैं, अपने आप को जन्मपूर्व देखभाल के लिए पंजीकृत करें। आपकी देखभाल का आयोजन जल्दी से शुरू होने का मतलब है कि आपको शुरुआत से ही स्वस्थ गर्भावस्था के लिए अच्छी सलाह मिलेगी। 
2. प्रीनेटल विटामिन लें: यहां तक कि जब आप गर्भ धारण करने की कोशिश भी कर रहे हैं, तो पहले से ही प्रीनेटल विटामिन लेना शुरू करने में समझदारी है। आपके बच्चे की न्यूरल कॉर्ड, जो मस्तिष्क और रीढ़ की हड्डी बन जाती है, गर्भावस्था के पहले महीने के भीतर विकसित होती है, इसलिए यह महत्वपूर्ण है कि आप प्रारंभ से ही आवश्यक पोषक तत्व प्राप्त करें, जैसे फोलिक एसिड, कैल्शियम और लोहा।
अगर इन्हे लेने से आपको विचित्र लगता है, तो रात को या हल्के नाश्ते के साथ लेने का प्रयास करें। इसके बाद खाने पर, चबाने वाली गम या चूसने वाली हार्ड कैंडी भी मदद कर सकते हैं। 
3. व्यायाम करें: यह आपके सामान्य स्वास्थ्य के लिए महत्वपूर्ण है और तनाव को कम करने में भी मदद कर सकता है। नियमित व्यायाम से आप अपना वजन नियंत्रित कर सकते हैं, रक्त परिसंचरण में सुधार कर सकते हैं, अपने मनोदशा को बढ़ा सकते हैं और बेहतर नींद पा सकते हैं। यह आपको गर्भावस्था के दौरान अपने जोड़ों पर तनाव के साथ सामना करने में भी मदद करता है। गर्भावस्था के लिए अच्छे अभ्यास में तेज चलना, तैराकी, एक्वैनाटल क्लासेस, योग, पायलट्स शामिल हैं।
4. अपने आप को शिक्षित करें: आपको न केवल प्रसूति और शिशु देखभाल के बारे में अधिक जानने का मौका मिलेगा, बल्कि आप विशिष्ट प्रश्न पूछ सकते हैं और किसी भी चिंता को दूर कर सकते हैं। 
5. केगेल का अभ्यास करें: केगेल पैल्विक फ्लोर की मांसपेशियों को मजबूत करते हैं, जो आपके मूत्राशय, आंत और गर्भाशय का समर्थन करते हैं। सही ढंग से किया गया, तो यह सरल अभ्यास आपके वितरण को आसान बनाने में मदद कर सकता है और बाद में असंयम से जुड़ी समस्याओं को रोक सकता है। 
6. अच्छा खाएं: एक स्वस्थ, संतुलित आहार खाने का प्रयास करें। ज्यादातर डॉक्टर गर्भावस्था के दौरान कैफीन को सीमित करने की सलाह देते हैं, क्योंकि इससे आपके और बच्चे पर हानिकारक प्रभाव पड़ सकते हैं। अधिक फल और सब्जियां खाएँ। प्रोटीन समृद्ध भोजन जैसे कि मछली, दुबला मांस, अंडे, सेम, नट या दालें खाएँ। 
विशेष रूप से मछली आपके बच्चे के लिए अद्भुत काम कर सकती हैं। मछली प्रोटीन, विटामिन डी, खनिज और ओमेगा -3 फैटी एसिड से भरा है, जो आपके बच्चे के तंत्रिका तंत्र के विकास के लिए महत्वपूर्ण हैं।
7. शराब न पीएँ: जब आप तेजी से शराब पीते हैं, तो यह आपके रक्त प्रवाह और नाल के माध्यम से आपके बच्चे तक पहुंचता है। पहले तीन महीनों के दौरान, शराब पीने से गर्भपात हो सकता है, जबकि तीसरे तिमाही में यह आपके बच्चे के मस्तिष्क के विकास को प्रभावित कर सकता है।
8. धूम्रपान न करें: गर्भावस्था के दौरान धूम्रपान आपके और आपके बच्चे के लिए गंभीर स्वास्थ्य समस्याएं पैदा कर सकता है। धूम्रपान समय से पहले जन्म, जन्म के वक़्त शिशु के वजन मे कमी, मरे हुए बच्चे, अचानक शिशु मृत्यु सिंड्रोम (एसआईडीएस) या "खाट पर मौत" का कारण बन सकता है। धूम्रपान करने से गर्भपात, एक्टोपिक गर्भावस्था और अपरा संबंधी अवखण्डन जैसी गर्भावस्था जटिलताओं की संभावना भी बढ़ती है।
9 अपने वजन पर खास ध्यान दें: पर्याप्त वजन न प्राप्त करने से बच्चे को कम वजन वाले जन्म का जोखिम हो सकता है, जो विकास की समस्याओं का एक प्रमुख कारण है। इसके अलावा, अतिरिक्त भार भी आप दोनों के लिए समस्याएं पैदा कर सकता है।

Processed Vs Natural Foods - Which Is Better?

Processed Vs Natural Foods - Which Is Better?

The battle of supremacy between processed and whole foods has been raging on for quite some time now. Which is better? Which is more nutritional? The debate seems a never ending one. This article will tell you the benefits and drawbacks of both types of foods. It’s for you to decide which one is better for you and which isn't.

Processed Foods
Processed foods are foods which have been altered in some way or the other to make them healthier, to make them taste better or for storage purposes. Almost every day to day food that you consume is processed. Some examples of processed foods include breakfast cereals, cheese, milks, soft drinks, bread etc.

Advantages of processed foods
Here are some advantages that you drive home from processed foods:
1. Processed foods like different types of jams and juices taste very good and last longer, making them a part of every household.
2. Processed fruits, vegetables and herbs, when stored in cans, tend to be free from bacteria and other harmful agents.
3. They are easy to purchase because they are available in all seasons

Disadvantages of processed foods
Processed foods have their own set of drawbacks. Here are some of them:
1. Some processed foods are genetically modified, which may cause a negative impact on your health.
2. Foods tend to lose their nutritional value when processed.
3. Foods that contain added sugar and fat can lead to a lot of health problems like diabetes, heart diseases and other cardiovascular problems.

Natural foods
Natural foods are those which don’t undergo any change in the form of added color, sugar or flavor. Natural foods go straight from vegetable farms and poultry farms to the market where you can purchase them.

Advantages of natural foods
Fresh fruits, vegetables or meat are categorized under natural foods, including a host of other foods as well which are not processed. Here are their advantages:
1. Natural foods are as nature intended them to be. They contain no added ingredients or flavor.
2. A diet comprising of natural foods keeps many diseases at bay.
3. Natural foods are free harmful flavor enhancers like MSG
4. Natural foods are rich in vitamins and minerals which are necessary for a healthy you.

Disadvantages of natural foods
There are not many disadvantages of natural foods apart from the facts that they are difficult to store, spoil after a certain period and are not available all year round. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dietitian-nutritionist.

Dear user. SEXUAL INTERCOURSE WITH PREGNANT WOMEN is not advisable during the first three months and the last three months of pregnancy. You can have sexual intercourse during the middle three months of pregnancy but only after permission from your gynecologist. Take care.

Hello- Indian females unlike males live a simple life which does not include porn, sexual activities or masturbation, so it prevents any unnatural sexual urge. It is absolutely normal, and nothing wrong with you. You can simply say no to your partner if need not to do it.

Girls do get pain in breasts before periods and it is called pre menstrual syndrome, water 'logging' is in entire body but felt more in the breasts due to tiny baloons present whose function is to store milk ,not extra water. It is due to some hormonal imbalance and treatment is simple - reduce salt intake because just observe in your kitchen ,salt has a tendency to 'retain' water , take more potassium present in lemons ,oranges etc. potassium automatically reduces the effect of sodium present in common salt , I am not asking you to eat saltless bland food , but reduce extra intake through chutneys , papads , sauces and pickles because salt is a preservative too. take green tea , because all of the above things rich in potassium leads to more urine , and extra water and salt are out of the body , one does not have to take medicines to induce urination , I hope you know how to do self analysis of breast , look for any lumps ,just to rule out any other reason of pain in breast.

Causes, Symptoms and Treatment of Miscarriage

MD
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Causes, Symptoms and Treatment of Miscarriage

A miscarriage is generally characterized by the loss of a fetus before the passage of around one forty days of pregnancy. In medical terminology, a miscarriage is usually referred to as a spontaneous abortion, precisely because it happens spontaneously. According to studies, about 50% of all pregnancies end up in miscarriages and around 80% of miscarriages occur within the first three months of pregnancy. If they happen to occur after the passage of twenty weeks of gestation, they are normally termed as late miscarriages.

Causes:
The most common cause of miscarriages is primarily due to the presence of some fatal or critical genetic problem in the unborn baby, which may or may not be in any way related to the mother. Apart from this, there is a host of other causes which are held responsible for miscarriages. These may include:

  1. Cervical insufficiency (weakness of the cervix)
  2. Infection
  3. Hormonal imbalances
  4. Physical problems in the mother
  5. Medical problems in the mother
  6. Immune system responses
  7. Uterine abnormalities

Symptoms:
Here are a few indicators of a miscarriage:

  1. Bleeding (which can vary from light to heavy bleeding)
  2. Abdominal pain
  3. Weakness
  4. Severe cramps
  5. Fever
  6. Back pain

Treatment:

  1. Treatment of miscarriages normally involves three steps - a pelvic exam, an ultrasound test and blood tests to confirm whether or not it is a miscarriage.
  2. If the miscarriage is complete and yet the uterus is still not emptied of its contents, then it may be necessary for you to undergo a dilation and curettage operation.
  3. If you have gone through multiple miscarriages in the past, then the treatment will probably involve a pelvic ultrasound, a hysterosalpingogram or a hysteroscopy.
