Stress and infertility

Stress and infertility

It is not clear how exactly stress impacts fertility. It is not known whether high levels of stress can prevent pregnancy or affect a woman's chance of conceiving. We do know that reducing stress provides a better quality of life during times of intense personal challenge. 

What is stress? 

Stress is often defined as an event that a person sees/ feels is threatening. In order to protect itself, the body responds with a fight or flight response. How can stress impact a fertility patient? sometimes, infertility patients respond to the stress of being unable to conceive by aggressively pursuing treatment and procedures. Other patients withdraw and isolate from family, friends, and community. Neither of these extremes is ideal for patients who seek to treat their infertility and build a family. 

How can I reduce my stress? 

Having less stress in your life while pursuing fertility treatment may not, in and of itself, result in a pregnancy. However, developing better coping strategies to manage stress related to an infertility diagnosis and treatment can help you feel more in control and improve your overall well-being. 

It has been shown that stress does interfere with making rational and well-thought-out decisions. Reducing stress can allow patients to research, explore, and consider all the options available with a clearer mindset. By reducing stress, the pros and cons of one treatment course over another can be more effectively weighed and considered. 

Reduced stress is good for your health. While no one expects patients to approach fertility treatment stress free, finding ways to minimize stress while pursuing treatment can help. It is helpful for patients to look for ways to reduce the burden of infertility treatments and medical protocols. 

There are many stress-reducing techniques; some of the more popular methods recommended to fertility patients are: 

acupuncture 

aerobic exercise (may be reduced during treatment) 

collaboration with experts in stress reduction 

guided imagery 

journaling 

listening to music 

massage therapy

meditation 

mind-body groups 

mindfulness 

progressive muscle relaxation 

psychotherapy and cognitive behavioral therapy 

self-help books

support/educational groups 

visualization 

walking/hiking 

yoga

 

How can I help my friend/loved one? 

Friends and loved ones are facing a challenge. Telling patients to be less stressed can make them feel more responsible for causing their own infertility and feel blamed. Telling someone to relax can cause greater stress. However, asking how couples/friends are doing and suggesting concrete and pragmatic ways to reduce stress will enhance quality of life and give the patient back some sense of control. For many struggling with infertility, just having friends/loved ones available for listening is greatly appreciated. 

The goal of stress reduction is to minimize, not eliminate stress, by finding the technique that serves the patient's needs the best.

Since she has taken the pill in correct time it should work and prevent unwanted pregnancy. But in case her periods are delayed you should get pregnancy test done to be safe.

If you have pain in stitches and other symptoms I would suggest you to refrain from sex and consult your gynaecologist. There are many homeo medicines those can help you. Lead a healthy life with healthy diet. Learn meditation. It will reduce your stress. Sex is not the solution for your amenorrhoea (lack of menses)

You should have a valid reason for termination. For the same you will have to visit a gynaecologist who can examine you and advise you the best suited method of abortion. Generally the procedure are safe but some kind of side effects and disadvantages are always associated with.

Sir meri wife 7 month 20 day ki pregnant hai aur unko leakage ho raha hai sir batay me kya karoon.

M.B.S.(HOMEO), MD - Homeopathy
Homeopath, Visakhapatnam
Preterm premature rupture of membranes (PPROM) is when the amniotic sac breaks before 37 weeks of gestation and labor has not started within one hour. The sac contains amniotic fluid and the developing baby. In PPROM, the amniotic fluid inside the sac leaks or gushes out of the vagina. If your waters break early the risks and treatment are dependent on the stage of pregnancy you are at. You are at risk of going into labour prematurely – the health risks for the baby of early birth are greater the younger they are. If you do not go into labour, you and the baby are at risk of infection because the normally sterile waters have been broken. The doctors have to balance these two considerations. If the waters have broken because of infection, you and the baby have a high risk of getting the infection and you may need to deliver sooner to prevent this. If the waters have broken but there is no infection currently present, you and the baby are still at risk but the immediate risk is lesser and your treatment will depend on your stage of pregnancy. If you are under 24 weeks of pregnancy and the baby is born, sadly, it is unlikely the baby will survive. If you are over 30 weeks and the baby is born, the likelihood of your baby surviving is very high - over 95%. Tests for your baby As well as carrying out various tests on you, the healthcare team will need to assess how your baby is doing. They will check his heartbeat and may also: Run a scan to check his weight Carry out electronic fetal monitoting to check his heart rate Perform a scan to check that the placenta is functioning normally. Even if it is a false alarm, the team may want to keep you in hospital to monitor you and your baby. If you are in labour and less than 35 weeks pregnant, they may try to stop the contractions, or to slow down the birth enough to give you injections of steroids to help your baby breathe when he is born. Find out more here about what happens if you are definitely in labour. If you are 35 weeks or over, the team will usually let the birth go ahead.

I am 20 years old and I suffer from underweight and irregular menstrual cycles. I also have fungal affected nails. In the past one year my weight went down by 2 kg's. Kindly Help me to gain weight.

BHMS
Homeopath, Chennai
Underweight is a term describing a person whose body weight is considered too low to be healthy. The definition usually refers to people with a body mass index (BMI) of under 18.5 a weight 15% to 20% below that normal for their age and height group. Low weight may be due to improper diet,reduced assimilation from intestine, illness,metabolism ,genetics etc . Thus first we have to rule out any such condition, with this have a healthy diet with more proteins (legumes,eggs,fish,lean meat),vegetables and fruits,drink plenty of water and go for regular exercise . A homoeopathic constitutional treatment will definitely help you a lot.

कलौंजी के लाभ...

डायबिटीज से बचाता है, पिंपल की समस्या दूर, मेमोरी पावर बढ़ाता है, सिरदर्द करे दूर, अस्थमा का इलाज, जोड़ों के दर्द में आराम, आंखों की रोशनी, कैंसर से बचाव, ब्लड प्रेशर करे कंट्रोल.

कलौंजी एक बेहद उपयोगी मसाला है. इसका प्रयोग विभिन्न व्यंजनों जैसे दालों, सब्जियों, नान, ब्रेड, केक और आचार आदि में किया जाता है. कलौंजी की सब्जी भी बनाई जाती है.

कलौंजी में एंटी-आक्सीडेंट भी मौजूद होता है जो कैंसर जैसी बीमारी से बचाता है.
कलौंजी का तेल कफ को नष्ट करने वाला और रक्तवाहिनी नाड़ियों को साफ़ करने वाला होता है. इसके अलावा यह खून में मौजूद दूषित व अनावश्यक द्रव्य को भी दूर रखता है. कलौंजी का तेल सुबह ख़ाली पेट और रात को सोते समय लेने से बहुत से रोग समाप्त होते हैं. गर्भावस्था के समय स्त्री को कलौंजी के तेल का उपयोग नहीं कराना चाहिए इससे गर्भपात होने की सम्भावना रहती है.

कलौंजी का तेल बनाने के लिए 50 ग्राम कलौंजी पीसकर ढाई किलो पानी में उबालें. उबलते-उबलते जब यह केवल एक किलो पानी रह जाए तो इसे
ठंडा होने दें. कलौंजी को पानी में गर्म करने पर इसका तेल निकलकर पानी के ऊपर तैरने लगता है. इस तेल पर हाथ फेरकर तब तक कटोरी में पोछें जब तक पानी के ऊपर तैरता हुआ तेल खत्म न हो जाए. फिर इस तेल को छानकर शीशी में भर लें और इसका प्रयोग औषधि के रूप में करें.

आयुर्वेद कहता है कि इसके बीजों की ताकत सात साल तक नष्ट नहीं होती. दमा, खांसी, एलर्जीः एक कप गर्म पानी में एक चम्मच शहद तथा आधा चम्मच कलौंजी का तेल मिलाकर सुबह निराहार (भोजन से पूर्व) पी लेना चाहिए, फिर रात में भोजन के बाद उसी प्रकार आधा चम्मच कलौंजी और एक चम्मच शहद गर्म पानी में मिलाकर इस मिश्रण का सेवन कर लेना चाहिए. इस प्रकार 40 दिनों तक प्रतिदिन दो बार पिया जाए. सर्दी के ठंडे पदार्थ वर्जित हैं.

मधुमेहः एक कप काली चाय में आधा चाय का चम्मच कलौंजी का तेल मिलाकर सुबह नाश्ते से पहले पी लेना चाहिए. फिर रात को भोजन के पश्चात सोने से पहले एक कप चाय में एक चम्मच कलौंजी का तेल मिलाकर पी लेना चाहिए. चिकनाई वाले पदार्थों के उपयोग से बचें. इस इलाज के साथ अंगे्रजी दवा का उपयोग होता है तो उसे जारी रखें और बीस दिनों के पश्चात शर्करा की जांच करा लें. यदि शक्कर नार्मल हो गई हो तो अंग्रेजी दवा बंद कर दें, किंतु कलौंजी का सेवन करते रहें.

हृदय रोगः एक कप दूध में आधा चम्मच कलौंजी का तेल मिलाकर प्रतिदिन दो बार प्रयोग करें. इस तरह दस दिनों तक उपचार चलता रहे. चिकनाई वाले पदार्थों का सेवन न करें.

नेत्र रोगों की चिकित्साः नेत्रों की लाली, मोतियाबिंद, आंखों से पानी का जाना, आंखों की तकलीफ और आंखों की नसों का कमजोर होना आदि में एक कप गाजर के जूस में आधा चम्मच कलौंजी का तेल दो चम्मच शहद मिलाकर दिन में दो बार सुबह (निराहार) और रात में सोते समय लेना चाहिए. इस प्रकार 40 दिनों तक इलाज जारी रखें. नेत्रों को धूप की गर्मी से बचाएं.

अपच या पेट दर्द में आप कलौंजी का काढा बनाइये फिर उसमे काला नमक मिलाकर सुबह शाम पीजिये. दो दिन में ही आराम देखिये.
कैंसर के उपचार में कलौजी के तेल की आधी बड़ी चम्मच को एक ग्लास अंगूर के रस में मिलाकर दिन में तीन बार लें.

हृदय रोग, ब्लड प्रेशर और हृदय की धमनियों का अवरोध के लिए जब भी कोई गर्म पेय लें, उसमें एक छोटी चम्मच तेल मिला कर लें.

सफेद दाग और लेप्रोसीः 15 दिन तक रोज पहले सेब का सिरका मलें, फिर कलौंजी का तेल मलें.

एक चाय की प्याली में एक बड़ी चम्मच कलौंजी का तेल डाल कर लेने से मन शांत हो जाता है और तनाव के सारे लक्षण ठीक हो जाते हैं.

कलौंजी के तेल को हल्का गर्म करके जहां दर्द हो वहां मालिश करें और एक बड़ी चम्मच तेल दिन में तीन बार लें. 15 दिन में बहुत आराम मिलेगा.

एक बड़ी चम्मच कलौंजी के तेल को एक बड़ी चम्मच शहद के साथ रोज सुबह लें, आप तंदुरूस्त रहेंगे और कभी बीमार नहीं होंगे; स्वस्थ और निरोग रहेंगे .

याददाश्त बढाने के लिए और मानसिक चेतना के लिए एक छोटी चम्मच कलौंजी का तेल 100 ग्राम उबले हुए पुदीने के साथ सेवन करें.

पथरी हो तो कलौंजी को पीस कर पानी में मिलाइए फिर उसमे शहद मिलाकर पीजिये, १०-११ दिन प्रयोग करके टेस्ट करा लीजिये.कम न हुई हो तो फिर १०-११ दिन पीजिये.


किसी को बार-बार हिचकी आ रही हो तो कलौंजी के चुटकी भर पावडर को ज़रा से शहद में मिलकर चटा दीजिये.

अगर किसी को पागल कुत्ते ने काट लिया हो तो आधा चम्मच से थोडा कम करीब तीन ग्राम कलौंजी को पानी में पीस कर पिला दीजिये, एक दिन
में एक ही बार ३-४ दिन करे.

जुकाम परेशान कर रहा हो तो इसके बीजों को गरम कीजिए ,मलमल के कपडे में बांधिए और सूंघते रहिये.

दो दिन में ही जुकाम और सर दर्द दोनों गायब . कलौंजी की राख को पानी से निगलने से बवासीर में बहुत लाभ होता है.

कलौंजी का उपयोग चर्म रोग की दवा बनाने में भी होता है. कलौंजी को पीस कर सिरके में मिलकर पेस्ट बनाए और मस्सों पर लगा लीजिये. मस्से कट जायेंगे. मुंहासे दूर करने के लिए कलौंजी और सिरके का पेस्ट रात में मुंह पर लगा कर सो जाएँ.

जब सर्दी के मौसम में सर दर्द सताए तो कलौंजी और जीरे की चटनी पीसिये और मस्तक पर लेप कर लीजिये.

घर में कुछ ज्यादा ही कीड़े-मकोड़े निकल रहे हों तो कलौंजी के बीजों का धुँआ कर दीजिये.

गैस/पेट फूलने की समस्या --50 ग्राम जीरा, 25 ग्राम अजवायन, 15 ग्राम कलौंजी अलग-अलग भून कर पीस लें और उन्हें एक साथ मिला दें. अब 1 से 2 चम्मच मीठा सोडा, 1 चम्मच सेंधा नमक तथा 2 ग्राम हींग शुद्ध घी में पका कर पीस लें. सबका मिश्रण तैयार कर लें. गुनगुने पानी की सहायता से 1 या आधा चम्मच खाएं.

All About Paleo Diet!

The paleo diet includes whole, unprocessed foods that resemble what they look like in nature.

Our ancestors were genetically the same as modern humans. They thrived eating such foods and were free of diseases like obesity, diabetes and heart disease.

Several studies suggest that this diet can lead to significant weight loss (without calorie counting).

A paleo diet meal plan-

The basics

  1. Eat: meat, fish, eggs, vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, herbs, spices, healthy fats and oils.
  2. Avoid: processed foods, sugar, soft drinks, grains, most dairy products, legumes, artificial sweeteners, vegetable oils, margarine and trans fats.
  3. Avoid these foods


Avoid these foods and ingredients:

  1. Sugar and high fructose corn syrup: soft drinks, fruit juices, table sugar, candy, pastries, ice cream and many others.
  2. Grains: includes breads and pastas, wheat, spelt, rye, barley, etc.
  3. Legumes: beans, lentils and many more.
  4. Dairy: avoid most dairy, especially low-fat (some versions of paleo do include full-fat dairy like butter and cheese).
  5. Vegetable oils: soybean oil, sunflower oil, cottonseed oil, corn oil, grapeseed oil, safflower oil and others.
  6. Trans fats: found in margarine and various processed foods. Usually referred to as “hydrogenated” or “partially hydrogenated” oils.
  7. Artificial sweeteners: aspartame, sucralose, cyclamates, saccharin, acesulfame potassium. Use natural sweeteners instead.
  8. Highly processed foods: everything labelled “diet” or “low-fat” or has many weird ingredients. Includes artificial meal replacements.


Foods to eat on the paleo diet-

Base your diet on these real, unprocessed paleo foods.

  1. Meats: beef, lamb, chicken, turkey, pork and others.
  2. Fish and seafood: salmon, trout, haddock, shrimp, shellfish, etc. Choose wild-caught if you can.
  3. Eggs: choose free-range, pastured or omega-3 enriched eggs.
  4. Vegetables: broccoli, kale, peppers, onions, carrots, tomatoes, etc.
  5. Fruits: apples, bananas, oranges, pears, avocados, strawberries, blueberries and more.
  6. Tubers: potatoes, sweet potatoes, yams, turnips, etc.
  7. Nuts and seeds: almonds, macadamia nuts, walnuts, hazelnuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and more.
  8. Healthy fats and oils: lard, tallow, coconut oil, olive oil, avocado oil and others.
  9. Salt and spices: sea salt, himalayan salt, garlic, turmeric, rosemary, etc.

Try to choose grass-fed, pasture raised and organic if you can afford it. If not, then just make sure to always go for the least processed option.

These are perfectly healthy in small amounts:

1. Wine: quality red wine is high in antioxidants and beneficial nutrients.
2. Dark chocolate: choose one that has 70% or higher cocoa content. Quality dark chocolate is very nutritious and extremely healthy.

What to drink when you’re thirsty -

Glass of water

  1. When it comes to hydration, water should be your go-to beverage.
  2. These aren’t exactly paleo, but most people drink them anyway:
  3. Tea is very healthy and loaded with antioxidants and various beneficial compounds. Green tea is best.
  4. Coffee is actually very high in antioxidants as well. 


A sample paleo menu for one week -

Monday

1. Breakfast: eggs and vegetables, fried in coconut oil. One piece of fruit.
2. Lunch: chicken salad, with olive oil. Handful of nuts.
3. Dinner: burgers (no bun), fried in butter, with vegetables and some salsa.

Tuesday

  1. Breakfast: bacon and eggs, with a piece of fruit.
  2. Lunch: leftover burgers from the night before.
  3. Dinner: salmon, fried in butter, with vegetables.

Wednesday

  1. Breakfast: meat with vegetables (leftovers from night before).
  2. Lunch: sandwich in a lettuce leaf, with meat and fresh vegetables.
  3. Dinner: ground beef stir fry, with vegetables. Some berries.

Thursday

  1. Breakfast: eggs and a fruit.
  2. Lunch: leftover stir fry from the night before. A handful of nuts.
  3. Dinner: fried pork, with vegetables.

Friday

  1. Breakfast: eggs and vegetables, fried in coconut oil.
  2. Lunch: chicken salad with olive oil. Handful of nuts.
  3. Dinner: steak with vegetables and sweet potatoes.

Saturday

  1. Breakfast: bacon and eggs, with a piece of fruit.
