Your developing baby is protected by the amniotic fluid in your uterus, as well as the strong muscles of the uterus itself. Sexual activity won't affect your baby. So it is completely safe to sex during pregnancy. But during first trimester sometimes there is risk of miscarriage because of intercourse and excessive body movement so try to avoid sex during first trimester.

4 Do’s and Don’ts on Drinking Alcohol + Common Myths Busted

4 Do’s and Don’ts on Drinking Alcohol + Common Myths Busted
4 Do’s and Don’ts on Drinking Alcohol + Common Myths Busted

There are several myths and misconceptions surrounding alcohol consumption. But at the heart of all such myths is the fact that alcohol consumption and its processing depends on various factors such as age, size and gender, among others. Here are some myths on alcohol consumption that do not hold true in reality.

Myth 1: Soft liquor doesn’t get you drunk

A common misconception centres on soft liquor and its alcoholic effects. Don’t assume that drinking of soft liquors like wine or beer means less alcohol content in your blood, which means lesser chances of you getting drunk. The factor that influences your intoxication levels depends not on the type of drinks you consume but on their quantity. So, whether it’s hard liquor (like gin and vodka) or soft liquor, you could still get intoxicated.

Do
It is best to set yourself limits so as to allow your body to process the alcohol.

Don’t
Drive if you have had too much of soft liquor.

Myth 2: Having food before drinking stops the absorption of alcohol

One of the most common myths around drinking alcohol is that eating food prior to drinking stops the body from absorbing the alcohol you consume. Well, this is not true. Food can only aid in delaying the effects of alcohol from setting in. Irrespective of your size, your body’s liver is capable of only handling one drink every hour. That’s why overindulging will only bring about an increase in alcohol concentration in your blood.

Do
To stave off the effects of intoxication and enjoy your glass of alcohol, try to have protein-rich foods before downing your drinks.

Don’t
Have more than one drink every hour.

Myth 3: It’s safe to drink and be on medications

False. Having alcohol while on medication can only lead to unwanted results. This is because interaction between the properties of the medicines and the alcohol brings about an increase in the drink’s alcoholic effect. Certain drugs (like cold medicine or pain killers) are known to significantly increase the intoxication effect of alcohol.

Do
Consult your doctor before consuming any kind of alcohol, in case of being on long-term medications.

Don’t
Drink when you’re on painkillers or cold medicine.

Myth 4: You can drive after an hour of having alcohol

The truth is that alcohol concentration in your body is significantly higher after 1 hour of having your drink. This is because your body begins to process the alcohol at that hour. So, driving after an hour of having alcohol is not safe.

Do
Get a cab for the ride back to your place.

Don’t
Drive if you’ve had your drink an hour ago.

What is uterine bubbles? I was suffering from that monthly twice periods is coming.

What is uterine bubbles? I was suffering from that monthly twice periods is coming.
Uterine bubbles are fluid retention in uterus. Some women can develop fluid retention in the uterus in a few different ways. Fluid may become present in the uterus in the form of fibroids. Drinking excess coffee (think 5-6 cups a day) will undoubtedly lead to fibroid growth. Non-malignant growths and tumors can also cause fluid in the uterus, and those that suffer from pelvic inflammatory disease will also find they suffer from fluid becoming trapped within the uterus. If you want prevention for that then avoid coffee, tea, increase your fiber intake.

Safe period is from day 1 to 7 and day 21 to the rest of the cycle, when you can have sex without worrying about getting pregnant (The average menstrual cycle is 28 days or a little less, but if your cycle is longer than 28 days, the safe period is not reliable). You had contact in the safe periods so you need not to worry about pregnancy or implantation bleeding, it is your normal mens.

Peanut Allergy Diet!

MBBS, Diploma in Child Health
Pediatrician, Hyderabad
Peanut Allergy Diet!

General guidelines for peanut allergy

The key to an allergy-free diet is to avoid all foods or products containing the food to which you are allergic. If you are allergic to peanuts, you will need to avoid peanuts and foods that contain peanuts. It is necessary to read all food labels.

How to read a label for a peanut-free diet:

In addition to peanuts, avoid foods that contain any of the following ingredients:

  • Artificial nuts (Nu-Nuts)

  • Beer nuts

  • Ground nuts

  • Mixed nuts

  • Monkey nuts

  • Peanut butter

  • Peanut flour

  • Peanut oil

Foods that may contain peanuts

These foods may also contain peanuts:

  • African, Chinese, Mexican, Thai, and other ethnic dishes

  • Baked goods

  • Candy

  • Cereals

  • Chili, spaghetti sauce

  • Crackers

  • Egg rolls

  • Enchilada sauce

  • Flavoring (natural and artificial) 

  • Hydrolyzed plant protein

  • Hydrolyzed vegetable protein

  • Ice creams, frozen yogurts, Tofutti

  • Marzipan

  • Nougat

Other sources of peanuts

These food sources may also contain peanuts:

  • Studies show that most people with allergies can safely eat foods containing peanut oil—except peanut oil that is cold-pressed, expressed, or expelled.

  • Ethnic foods, commercially prepared baked goods, and candy can be cross-contaminated with peanuts since peanuts are often used in these types of foods.

  • Peanut butter and/or peanut flour have been used in homemade chili and spaghetti sauce as thickeners.

  • Hydrolyzed plant and vegetable protein may be from peanuts in imported foods.

I always feel wet in vaginal area and my inner clothes get smelled due to this wetness always. (Im embarrassed to sit with widened legs due to that smell. I'm getting that white thing even if my periods are completed. Is it common to get like that. If not suggest me what to do for this problem?

Can confirm whether you are pregnant by urine pregnancy test along with blood test. You need to get thorough check up and investigation to find out the number of eggs in your ovaries. Also get your husbands semen test also. You can do do online consultation with me or any gynaecologist.

I guess your last period was april 17 and not may 17. If you say you are pregnancy then that means it's around 4-5 weeks. If you wish to discontinue or terminate the pregnancy you should consult a gynecologist for an appropriate and safe method of termination. Do not use medicines without consulting a doctor.

Any symptom in Breast, such as swelling, redness and especially pain shouldn't be taken lightly. I would suggest you to get a Mammogram of both the breasts and get a routine blood test (Hemoglobin, Total count, Differential Count), ultrasound of the abdomen and a chest x ray. Also consult a Gynecologist with your reports. In case of any doubts with your reports you can consult me. Do not delay your mammogram anymore.

If you and your partner have been having unprotected sexual intercourse for over a year and are still not able to conceive a baby, chances are that either one of you has a problem relating to fertility. There may be several causes behind this problem. In men, a low sperm count is one of the primary reasons for infertility. In women, a blockage in the fallopian tubes, uterine fibroids or cysts in the ovaries could be the cause of infertility. Also, as a woman enters her 30s, her reproductive system starts showing signs of ageing and produces lesser hormones and eggs, this could cause difficulty in conceiving. There are several sophisticated medical procedures for helping infertile couples conceive, such as artificial insemination, invitrio fertilization and test tube babies. Though the exact nature of the problem and the best way of dealing with it can be determined only by a doctor, there are a few basic rules that you should follow to increase your chances of conceiving naturally. Make sure you have sex while you are ovulating during the menstrual cycle. Using an ovulation predictor test kit to determine exactly when you start ovulating is a good idea. .
