The most common early signs and symptoms of pregnancy might include: Missed period. If you're in your childbearing years and a week or more has passed without the start of an expected menstrual cycle, you might be pregnant. Tender, swollen breasts. Nausea with or without vomiting. Increased urination. Fatigue. Pregnancy tests check for the presence of the pregnancy hormone, human chorionic gonadotrophin (HCG) in your urine. After you conceive (when the sperm fertilises the egg), your body begins to produce HCG. Around two weeks after you conceive, there's enough HCG for most pregnancy tests to detect it.

A Glass Of Milk Everyday - 7 Reasons Why It Is So Important!

A Glass Of Milk Everyday - 7 Reasons Why It Is So Important!

Well! We have heard so many good things about milk in commercials. Have we ever sat and thought through the real benefits of milk? Apart from being a healthy drink and the backbone of the dairy industry, this calcium-rich drink has innumerable benefits. In this article, we will discuss some not so known pros of milk:

  1. Complexion: If you want your complexion to lighten, instead of buying cosmetics, drinking 2 glasses of milk will fetch more benefits. Milk helps the skin to supple, glow and soft. Owing to its countless nutrients and vitamin contents, milk can be your best friend, if you are seeking a fair complexion.
  2. Strong Teeth: Being a tremendous source of Calcium, consumption of milk ensures strong teeth and help a person refrain from the decay of tooth and cavities. Care should be taken that Vitamin D is also consumed along with milk. The former helps the body to absorb calcium.
  3. Healthy Bones: Bone health and milk has a direct co-relation. It is, therefore, advised that kids consume milk to ensure proper growth. In the case of an adult, milk makes the bone strong and mitigate the risk of osteoporosis. A daily serving of one glass should do the trick for any individual.
  4. Weight Loss: Studies in the past have shown that women who consume milk daily can shed weight quicker compared to those who do not drink milk. A glass of milk can be drunk as a fulfilling appetizer, evening snack etc. It makes sense that milk is drunk during the night just before sleep.
  5. Stress Reduction: A study conducted by the Stamford Medical School in the year 2002 revealed that a warm glass of milk can go a long way in relieving stress. Daily consumption of milk after a hard day’s work can not only relax the nerves but calms the mind as well.
  6. Energy Buster: While milk is a great health drink, one can always turn to it when the body needs an energy boost. Milk can instantly revitalize the body. It is advisable that an ice-cold glass of milk should be consumed when there is a need for instant body revitalization.
  7. Eliminator of Diseases: There have been countless studies performed over the last few decades about the health benefits of milk and its capability to fight critical diseases. For instance, milk can mitigate the risk of strokes, keep blood pressure down, reduce cholesterol production of the liver, improve the eyesight, negates the chances of many types of cancer etc.

To ensure that the general health of the body is maintained, consumption of a tall glass of milk is necessary. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult an ayurveda.

Homeopath, Vadodara
Hello, It is advisable for all females after the age of 15 to take rubella vaccination. As the upcoming child may be a victim if she get infection during pregnancy. So if you had not taken Rubella vaccination then its advisable. If Yor going to take Rubella vaccination don't plan your pregnancy for 3-6 months. Take care.

Thyroid During Pregnancy - Know Its Effects!

Thyroid During Pregnancy - Know Its Effects!

The body has various chemicals called hormones which play a significant role in controlling various functions. Produced by organs that weigh as less as 0.5 g, these hormones control height to weight to reproduction to metabolism. It is not surprising that even little amount of variation in these hormones have a noticeable effect on the body’s functioning.

It is well acknowledged that pregnancy is a highly crucial, complicated, and anxious period of a woman’s life. The mother-to-be has the dual responsibility of taking care of her health in addition to ensuring the child within is protected and nurtured well to develop into a full-term baby. Pregnancy is controlled my many hormones and the thyroid also plays a significant role during this time. The connection between pregnancy and thyroid hormone is quite strong.

Women are more prone to develop hypothyroidism, and if diagnosed during pregnancy, extra care must be taken to ensure thyroid levels are maintained in the optimal range. Women with hypothyroidism who get pregnant can have multiple effects including the following

  1. Higher incidence of miscarriages: When a woman has multiple miscarriages in the first trimester, one of the reasons to rule out would be hypothyroidism. The incidence of second trimester miscarriage is also quite high in women with hypothyroidism. It is believed that thyroid controls the other female hormone levels and therefore optimal levels of T4 are essential for maintenance of pregnancy.
  2. Developmental defects and delays: The developing child requires its supply of hormones from the mother until it can start producing them on its own. This would take time and unless the mother is producing optimal amounts for herself, the child would not be receiving the required amounts of hormones. This means the child’s growth and development controlled by the hormones would be affected. Even after birth, there could be delays in terms of developmental milestones.
  3. Low birth weight: Underdevelopment of the child leads to low birth weight.
  4. Stillbirth: Women with hypothyroidism can also have a higher incidence of stillbirth.
  5. Hypertension and preeclampsia: The blood pressure could be significantly elevated and lead to complications in the later trimesters.
  6. Maternal emotional health: Lower levels of thyroid bring about fatigue, depression and mood swings in all women. Given the added state of pregnancy, it is not surprising there would be greater mood swings and bouts of depression and low self-esteem.

With prenatal care improving, comprehensive thyroid screening, especially in people with family history of thyroid problems, is being made mandatory. Talk to your doctor to ensure your thyroid functions are normal. This ensures thyroid levels are maintained for optimal growth of the newborn and the health of the mother is not jeopardised. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can ask a free question.

Menstruation starts on 31st march 2017 and she had unprotected sex using coitus interruptus method on 8th april 2017 but after that wiped the vagina with that handkerchief on which he ejaculates. Is there any chance of pregnancy? Her cycle is regular of 30 days.

If there was semen in the cloth she wiped her vagina with there are every chances of pregnancy as one KY one sperm is required to get a lady pregnant so kindly ask the lady to do a home pregnancy test at day 15 with first sample of urine upon waking up. Also I urge your partner and you to have safe protected sex always to shield against sexually transmitted infections and unwanted pregnancies. You cannot take a chance with your health. All the best to you.

Avoid intercourse, avoid any vaginal drugs. Repeat USG after 20 weeks. And if you notice any vaginal bleeding, however small it is, contact your doctor immediately.

Yes. Irregular periods indicate hormonal imbalance and can interfere with conception. Do a urine pregnancy test. If negative, do an ultrasound pelvis and see your gynaec.

Wiping your vagina from front to back is a healthy way of doing it because wiping from back to front increases the risk of developing urinary tract infections and yeast infections, the cause of which is exposing the vagina to harmful anal bacteria. Try to keep your vaginal and anal wiping seperate.

You are 22, have a height of 5.4 feet and weight is 83.....this weight is in too much excess for your height. Unless you reduce weight, your menses wont regularise. so make it a point to come down to the best normal weight for your height of about 55 kg. Taking ultrasound and doing blood tests like thyroid tests hormone tests can be done to rule out some of the problems like thyroid dysfunction and ovarian uterine problems. Once you get menses, do visit the gynecologist to take medicines for making menses regular. BUT if you are OKay with irregular, or delayed menses, there is NOTHING to worry and you may not take medicines also. Meanwhile concentrate on your weight loss and get a diet charted by a dietitian and go to GYM to do cardiovascular exercises.

Dear user. I can understand. Anal sex is not conventional and therefore it is not advised. You can never clear your anus hole completely and therefore chances of infection are more. Secondly you woman will not receive any pleasure during anal sex. There could pain and irritation too. Therefore I suggest against anal sex. Take care.

How masturbation affects health and how to overcome the nasty habit?

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
How masturbation affects health and how to overcome the nasty habit?

One drop of semen is equal to about 40 drops of blood,

Masturbation is like taking a razor and slashing the wrist,
One should avoid masturbation or any illicit sex activity. Imagine how much weakness and reduction of work efficiency can masturbation cause! Sex other than for procreation and within marriage is illicit sex activity, so masturbation comes under illicit sex.

To avoid illicit sex and the nasty habit of masturbation :

1) Eating less in night,

2) Avoid non-vegetarian foods

3) Avoid intoxicants like tobacco,alcohol

4) Avoid onions and garlic which are aphrodisiacs and bind to lust and masturbation.

5) Take fruits, vegetables and drink hot cup of cow's milk every night

6) Avoid foods which are too pungent, spicy, oily, bitter because such foods cause misery and disease

7) Read nice books based on simple living high thinking and make your life successful

You should be very careful and determined to stop this nasty habit as soon as possible as it can cause many problems physically, mentally, socially etc

The truth is sometimes harsh but if taken positively, it can ultimately lead to happiness and success. The truth is in the oldest and fully dependable Vedic texts, that by illicit sex activity, one takes the risk of becoming an animal in next life.

Hope this helps to win over the nasty habit of illicit sex and masturbation.
