Yes, this is called shirodkar stitch, given to close mouth of uterus which remains open - due to repeated abortions/ instrumentations. As a rule the mouth is tightly shut, being elastic tissue it opens only at delivery or periodically during periods to let the collected blood out, closes again, once elasticity is lost, mouth of uterus called cervix cannot regain its normal tight self again, stitch is opened just before delivery to let the baby out. During your 2nd pregnancy, same process will be followed to save you from any mishap like miscarriage / infection to growing baby due to open mouth of uterus.

Naturopathy believes that Mother Nature has every remedy for our problems, it believes in preventing the problem instead of just curing it. I am suggesting you some simple lifestyle changing tips that will not just make your body proportionate and give you a desired shape but will also help you obtain a healthy body. You can come over it very easily due to your determination. 1.Make sure you are walking at least 5000 steps every day 2.You should avoid late night dinners at any cost and make sure you are following a routine while having 3 main course foods of the day. 3.Try having your dinner (proper food) before sunset and not eat anything heavy after sunset this will surely help you in your stomach problem. 4.Try to sleep before 11: 00 P. M. And sleep for minimum 7 to 8 hours. Lack of sleep is also a leading factor of weight gain. 5.Avoid processed food, sugar and its products as well as refined oil/double refined oil. Use pure oil of mustard (sarso), peanut, coconut, cow ghee, sesame. 6.In the morning start consuming lukewarm water right after you wake up & sitting in sukhasaan (chaukdi) it is advisable to even do rinsing with the lukewarm water in your mouth and drink sip by sip instead of drinking quickly. This process is done for the detoxification and cleaning of your stomach/intestines that has everything to with your weight issues. After this your stomach condition will remain intact at pH7 (which is not alkaline or acidic in nature but normal). 7.Another advice is that don’t drink water after your meals (lunch, dinner, breakfast, or any mini meal). Drink water after 90 minutes. Drinking water after your meals reduces your digestion, and as you know if food is not digested it will produce acid, which in turn will increase your weight. Drinking water during or after meals can bring almost 103 types of disease in your body. I can suggest you one magic machine which you can use, its a machine which every Indian mother used from thousands of years and every one had a normal delivery. That machine is" atta peesne ki chakki" Through this machine your uterus will be flexible and you will avoid cesarean delivery, use it for 15 minutes everyday and you may also use to eat fresh flour. You can also start eating methi dane k ladoo to avoid cesarean deliver. Thirdly if you do not have kidney or gall stone problem you can eat one gram choona (lime stone) with curd for 3 months. This will help not only in giving normal deliver but will also give birth to a intelligent baby, that calcium will reach your baby through mothers milk. Choona is a magic natural medicine, do not bring doubt in your mind, for any query you can contact me or check the benefits of lime stone. For pain during pregnancy drink hot cow milk at night and add 1 table spoon cow ghee and half table spoon haldi, this will give instant relief and is the best medicine for pregnant mothers.

You are having hormonal problem. It could be a case of polycystic ovarian disease (pcod). To diagnose the condition further detail of you menstral history is required. You may need an ultrasound which will help to diagnose pcod. You also need couple of hormone tests namely serum fsh, lh, tsh and prolactin. Consult a gynaecologist.

Which period during the menstrual cycle is contraceptive as in sex during those days will lead to pregnancy?
There are maximum chances of getting pregnant in the mid cycle days  of menstrual cycle. If your cycle is of 28 days (1st day to be counted on the day menstrual flow starts) the 14th day bears the maximum chances of getting pregnant. On the both sides of 14th day chances of conceiving gradually decreases with minimum chance (not zero) near 1st and 28th day of cycle.

Goose berry juice is rich in iron and vitamins. It helps you in digestion and build over all strength and healthy living. It makes your skin glow hence you can use it daily, I guess it doesn't have potential side effects.

This type of symptoms do appear in early pregnancy sometimes nothing to worry only thing is she should continue eating smaller quantities more frequently so that her body can retain sufficient nutrites and be under the constant guidance of her gynaecologist.

I feel exhausted even after doing simple household work. Please advise. I'm 40 years old female.
Persistent weakness can be caused by health problems like anemia, arthritis, hypothyroidism, a sleep disorder, cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, diabetes and heart disease. In these cases, it is very important to find out the exact cause behind your weakness. To feel energetic and refreshed in life, you must exercise daily for at least 30 minutes, maintain your ideal body weight, follow a good diet, sleep properly, drink water throughout the day to keep your body hydrated, avoid alcohol and stop smoking Many simple home remedies also can give you a boost of energy and restore your strength Bananas Bananas are a great source of natural sugars like sucrose, fructose, and glucose that can give you a quick and substantial energy boost. Plus, bananas have potassium, a mineral your body needs to convert sugar into energy. The fiber in bananas also helps maintain the glucose level in your blood. ? Whenever you feel weak, eat one or two bananas. You can also try a banana shake or smoothie. To help strengthen your body and keep from feeling weak, eat a ripe banana with one tablespoon of honey twice daily. . Milk Milk is considered the best source of vital B vitamins that are believed to reduce weakness. Also, it is a good source of calcium that keeps your bones and muscles strong. ? Whenever you have weakness, drink a cup of warm milk with one teaspoon of honey mixed in it. ? You can also boil two to three figs in one cup of milk. Eat the boiled figs and drink the milk to gain strength. ? Alternatively, add one teaspoon of clarified butter to a glass of warm milk. Drink it twice daily to cure weakness caused by excessive loss of blood. Ginseng Known for centuries as a powerful antioxidant, ginseng can give you more energy whenever you feel weak. The calm and soothing nature of this herb will also have an instant effect on your nerves. 1. Cut one ginseng root into thin slices. 2. Simmer eight to 10 slices in three cups of water for 15 minutes on low heat. 3. Strain the solution, add a little honey and allow it to cool. 4. Drink one to three cups of ginseng tea daily as needed. Note: Ginseng is not suitable for those who have high blood pressure

She feels no labor pain yet.
The amniotic fluid is very low.Labour induction may be advised.Since 36 th week is running now the baby will be mature.Or the doctor may advise you to get admitted and monitor the baby s heart beat and other things continuously and any time if she feels the baby is at risk either induction of labour or Caesarian will be advised as the situation warrants.

Causes of postmenopausal bleeding polyps: these are growths, usually noncancerous, that can develop in the uterus, on the cervix, or inside the cervical canal. They might cause bleeding. Endometrial atrophy (thinning of the endometrium): the endometrium, the tissue that lines the uterus, can become very thin after menopause because of lower estrogen levels. This may cause unexpected bleeding. Endometrial hyperplasia: in this condition, the lining of the uterus becomes thick, and bleeding may occur as a result. Obesity may be the cause of the problem. Some people with endometrial hyperplasia may have abnormal cells that can lead to endometrial cancer (cancer of the uterine lining). Endometrial cancer (uterine cancer): bleeding after menopause can be a sign of endometrial cancer. Other causes: hormone therapy, infection of the uterus or cervix, use of certain medications such as blood thinners, and other types of cancer can cause postmenopausal bleeding. I will advise you to go for abdominal ultrasound and a blood examination for thyroid profile.

To find out why you r suffering from irregular menses, you need to get sonography done and fsh, lh, tsh and prolactin blood tests. Based on the reports we can treat you better. You r likely to be suffering from pcod.

Ginger: 9 Reasons Why You Should Know Adrak Ka Swaad

Ginger: 9 Reasons Why You Should Know Adrak Ka Swaad

Ginger or adrak, a staple spice of Indian household today, originated in the south-east Asia more than 5000 years ago. Back then, it was considered a medicine for all ailments. It contains a compound known as 'gingerol' that has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

Ginger has been used to combat the common cold in addition to being a taste enhancer in food and tea. But little do we know about the gamut of health benefits that it provides.

Here are some amazing health benefits of this wonder spice:

1. Boosts immunity

It cleans the body's sewage system thereby preventing the accumulation of toxins. Cut ginger into small pieces and put into a bowl of water and then boil for 8-10 minutes. Drink this herbal solution for 3-4 times a day, relieving you of the irritating coughs in addition to boosting your immunity. If you do not like the taste of it, stir some honey or lemon into it.

2. Helps in weight loss

Ginger also helps in promoting weight loss. It activates the body's metabolism and hence leads to burning of fat. Heat a cup of water till it boils, now add a small piece of ginger and keep it covered for five minutes. You can add lemon juice to taste. Drink this before breakfast for reaping maximum benefits.

3. Regulates blood pressure

Ginger acts similar to blood pressure controlling pills. It blocks the flow of calcium into heart cells which lowers blood pressure. Drink ginger tea before breakfast instead of popping the prescription pill.

4. Helps clear acne

The ginger extract helps in purification of blood. Extract ginger juice and store it in a refrigerator. Mix 2 tablespoon of ginger juice along with 2 tablespoons of honey and consume every morning on an empty stomach. This helps you get rid of a pimple, acne, and other skin disorders.

5. Lowers cholesterol

Consuming 2-3 grams of dry ginger every day has been associated with lowering cholesterol levels. Consuming ginger activates an enzyme that increases body's use of cholesterol. It also protects a diabetic person's organs such as liver and kidneys.

6. Aids in digestion

A good stomach is the sign of good health. A common problem among the mass is indigestion. Ginger is helpful in battling indigestion. Peel and cut the ginger into small pieces. Soak these in honey in a bottle and keep in sunlight for 10 days. Consume 2-4 pieces every morning.

7. Cures nausea

Chewing raw ginger is effective in treating nausea. Wash and peel ginger before cutting into small pieces. Chew these pieces throughout the day. You can also grab some snacks containing ginger.

8. Eases muscle pain

Heavy weight lifting at the gym often leads to muscle pain the following days. The anti-inflammatory property, attributed to sesquiterpenes such as zingiberene present in ginger, helps in reducing exercise-induced muscle pain if taken consistently over a period of time. One teaspoon of dried ginger or 2 teaspoons of chopped ginger can be added to meals daily.

9. Relieves joint pain

The anti-inflammatory property of the ginger helps in fighting osteoarthritis- a condition of joint pain and stiffness. Applying ginger oil topically on the joints lowers the pain and also eliminates the necessity to pop pain killers.

It should be noted here that ginger should not be given to children under the age of 2 years. For children over 2 years, you should consult your doctor to determine the right dose. Adults should not consume more than 4 grams per day.

With so much to offer, ginger can safely be tagged as a superfood that you should make a part of your daily diet.

There can be many reasons of delayed periods. Firstly 1week late or early is normal, its not counted as any abnormality. Secondly check your Hb level. If its less then that could be the reason. For that you can take Tonoferon syrup 1 tsp twice a day for 3-4 mnths. Otherwise if Hb level is fine you can take ayurvedic uterine tonic M2tone or Amycordial or N-stree whichever is available to you. 2tsp thrice after food for 6mnths
