Miss lybrate-user, as you told you have pcod problem. Basically it is due to hormone imbalance. There are number of reasons for that, it is mainly due to faulty food habits and life style. Stress and anxiety are also main cause of hormonal imbalance. So our line of treatment should have to include all these factors too. Our brain has its own biological clock and it work according to that- like -time of hunger, time for bowel clearance etc. So we must follow this clock. Deviation from it leads to number of disease. Do daily walk take your meal on time, so that it is properly digested, nothing is more important than digestion of food. Make sure that your bowel moment is ok. Do yoga and pranayam - asana, kapalbhati is very good in pcod. Tere are lots of ayurvedic medicine which are helpful in it. Consult for proper medication.

Hello, Nausea and vomitting in the initial trimester is quite common. Start your day by having ginger tea,that will help you. Avoid consuming milk early mornings. Dont lie down immediately after food. Small portions of meals will help and drink lots of water throughout the day.

Super Fact of the Day: The brain activates the same amount of power as a 10-watt light bulb!
The image of a light bulb over the head when a great idea occurs is not entirely false. Your brain generates as much energy as a small 10-watt light bulb even while you are asleep.

Would you like to share this interesting fact with family or friends? go ahead and share!

Hi lybrate-user, Its normal to put on weight especially around belly and waist during pregnancy. Do not worry, it is possible to get rid of pregnancy weight and gain your confidence again. There are two pillars for weight loss. Diet and exercise. Although right diet can control further weight gain and assure overall health, exercise is must for weight reduction. 30 mins walk (to start with), with well-balanced diet (depending on your health condition) can lead to gradual and healthy weight loss. Workout, eat well, be patient. Your body will reward you. I would be happy to help you. Please consult me privately so that I can understand your problem in detail and device a diet plan for you.

IVF - 3 Reasons to Opt for it

IVF - 3 Reasons to Opt for it

In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a medical procedure that side-steps the sexual act of conceiving and helps infertile couples, conceive a biological child. It involves the manual process of fertilization by combining an egg and sperm in the laboratory and then implanting the embryo into the female to impregnate her.

The inability to give birth through the natural way is caused due to complications like: blocked fallopian tubes, unexplained infertility, Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), endometriosis: where parts of the womb lining grow out of the womb, premature ovarian failure and so on.

If you or your partner is having trouble conceiving, you should opt for in vitro fertilization. It holds benefits like-

1. High success rates: Women who underwent in vitro fertilisation using fresh embryos of their own fresh eggs, the projected live birth percentage was 32.2% for those under 35 years, 27.7% for women aged between 35 and 37 years, lowering to 5.0% in 43 to 44 year olds and 1.9% for ages above 45. It has been proved that a female’s ability to conceive decreases with age. If infertility is detected at a younger age, the process of IVF is highly advantageous and successfully results in childbirth.

2. Proven track record: Technology has come a long way since the first baby via IVF Louise Brown was born in 1978 using a natural IVF. Medical techniques have advanced to create safer and successful treatment. The usage of the safest forms of IVF with low drug regimens today, have prevented side effects such as ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS).

3. Harvests multiple eggs: If you are planning to have more than one child, via IVF you can freeze multiple eggs for future use. Unused or spare embryos can be donated to medical organisations for research purposes or to another couple willing to have a child.
IVF has proven successful in giving couples a wholesome and happy life. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an IVF Specialist.

At times after abortion it take time for your hormones to get normal which then cause irregularity in mensis. Don't worry and wait for your cycle to get normal. In some cases it will take 2-3 months.
