There is no chance to get pregnant because you got the periods after having sex on 2nd august. Now you should wait for the periods for 3 more days, if it does not appear then take pulsatilla 200, 5 drops, morning empty stomach for 3 days.

How To Snack In A More Healthy Way

What do you do when the munchies strike? do you look for the healthiest option and wait for it? or do you simply grab what you see instantly and stuff it in before you have second thoughts about it? chances are, you may be onto a healthy diet which is being countered by an unhealthy snack time. So what can you do to snack in a healthy way? read on to know more!


Take smaller meals: instead of doing three feast like meals and then vowing to stay hungry in between, it is better to instead divide your meals into five or six mini meals that will keep you going the whole day. This will keep you feeling full, and prevent you from reaching out for fatty, oily or excessively sweet food.
Timing matters: knowing when and how to take your meals will decide whether or not you feel hungry for a snack at odd hours. Try to have breakfast within an hour after you wake up, and have your last meal well before bedtime. This will give your metabolism a kick and keep it working until your body's digestive fires are on so that you do not feel the need for snacks.
Healthy snacks: who said snacks need to be composed entirely of junk food? you can create mini meals out of healthy sacks and learn to enjoy them too. Carry a small airtight jar of mixed dry fruits and nuts, roasted flaxseed, and other such ingredients which you can munch on. These ingredients help in curbing the hunger to a great extent. Also, you can indulge in a portion of fruit between one meal, and a salad between another. Whole grain crackers can also save you a great deal of calories.
Bring protein and carbohydrates together: looking for a quick dose of energy as you sit slumped at your work desk, ready to demolish an entire muffin? well, think of proteins and carbohydrates instead. A yummy dip with whole grain crackers, or a box of chickpeas seasoned with your favourite condiments, will do the trick. These snacks will help keep you full for longer periods, even as they give you a shot of energy without an unhealthy diet.
Small treats: get yourself a small treat every once in a while so that you remember to enjoy the smaller things without going full on binge.
Multitask: get on to an important task while you snack so that you end up eating less, and you work more of your energy into the task instead.
Snacking is not the offense: snacking on the wrong thing is. So remember to be mindful of these tricks to get yourself a healthier snack.

Yes there is chance of pregnancy. There is nothing you can do immediately except to wait for her periods. If she misses her periods than go for pregnancy test. For abortion you will have to visit a gynecologist for advise.

The safe period is from day 2-11 of her cycle. There are no chances of pregnancy as you were in your safe period and the withdrawal bleeding which arrives after 7-10 days post ipill intake indirectly conveys that she is not pregnant.

You can exercise for healthier gums as well. Gently bite down so as to make sure that your teeth make a clinking sound when they meet. Repeat this 30 to 40 times continously. This exercise will stimulate the flow of blood and will keep your gums healthy.

The Best and Worst Crunchy Foods for Your Teeth

BDS

Ask Free Question
The mere thought of biting into something crunchy brings a refreshing thought. However, realize that crunchy things are not always good for general health and oral health. While some crunchy foods can be very good for the teeth, others can do a great deal of harm.

Given that crunchy foods are something more popular with kids, they should be taught the good and bad about crunchy foods. That does not mean they are banned from eating any bad crunchy food. There are ways to reduce the effects of eating a bad crunchy food and the children should be taught those early on.

Let us look at the bad crunchy foods first. A packet of chips or crackers may sound extremely exciting for the kid, but they are very damaging to the teeth. Pieces of these stick to the teeth and in-between the teeth, thereby attracting germs and causing decay.

Candies are the next lot. They contain a great amount of sugar that does not leave the mouth after the candy is swallowed. The sugar stays long after the candy is out of the mouth and continues to cause damage.

In both these cases, the child should not be told not to eat. The trick is to teach them that while they can eat these, it should immediately be followed by a brushing session or a thorough rinse if brushing is not possible. Get them into the habit of a thorough rinse after each meal and no crunchy food can produce the same damage.

Good crunchy foods: the vegetables and fruits are undoubtedly the best crunchy foods to bite into. Not only are they good for overall health with their rich fiber content and vitamins, they also have a great benefit for the oral health. Any fruit from apple to a pear induces salivary glands and increases the cleansing effect of the saliva. The natural fibers also produce the same effect as does brushing for a couple of minutes. The teeth surfaces are freed of plaque and bacteria, thereby reducing the chances of tooth decay. Carrots and celery also contain vitamin a, which is good for healthy tooth structure. They also are rich in water and provide good amount of water for the body. Another good crunchy food is popcorn, which not just is light on the stomach, but also has a good amount of fiber.

The next time you need something crunchy to bite on, take a decision. What you might munch into can have a lot of effect both on your overall health and your teeth. Also, watch your children and teach them how to nullify the bad effects.

Yes you should give her a pill as this technique of discharging outside while having unprotected sex is called COITUS INTERRUPTUS and is highly dangerous.For adopting this technique while having sex you should know regarding the safe and unsafe period of your Gf menstrual cycle and if Sexual contact is made in unsafe period ,even though you have ejaculated outside,you should immediately give her pill,afterall accidents dont happen with prior intimation.

Menses can be missed either because of hormonal changes or even stress or illness or even if you have put on some weight in recent times then also menses can be missed. All these problems are temporary and menses will come on its own. You can wait for another 15 days before you can take tablet deviry to get menses. In the meantime, keep repeating urine pregnancy test every week till you get your menses. First test to be done 7 days after the missed period. And self controlled method is not full proff method as pre-ejaculate secretions contain sperms which can cause pregnancy.

Salivary gland produce saliva, which keeps the mouth hydrated. It softens and moistens the food that you chew while eating. Saliva also has a slight digestive function. Most of the times, tumors that form on the glands are noncancerous. But sometimes, they might be cancerous. There are three main salivary: parotid glands, submandibular glands and sublingual glands.

Salivary gland cancer falls under the category of mouth cancers. The symptoms of salivary gland cancer include:
1. A lump or mass in the neck, face or mouth.
2. Pain in one area of the face, mouth or neck
3. There is a noticeable difference in the shape or size of the right and the left sides of the face.
4. Feeling numb and weakness on either side of the face.

The risks of salivary gland cancer are as follows:
1. Exposure to industrial radioactive chemicals
2. Diets high in animal fat but very low in vegetables and fruits
3. Consumption of alcohol and smoking, or chewing tobacco
4. Genetics or hereditary factors

The two most Ayurvedic treatment for salivary gland tumours are Arogyavardhini Vati and Punarnavadi Guggulu.
1. Arogyavardhini Vati: Arogyavardhini Vati is the best Ayurvedic remedy for digestive conditions. Salivary gland tumors do end up affecting digestion. This remedy is beneficial for such. Arogyavardhini must be taken cautiously since it has potent metal (mercury, sulphur, iron, mica and copper) ingredients. It balances the vata, kapha and pitta doshas in the body. Do not take this medicine if you're pregnant or lactating.

2. Punarnavadi Guggulu: Punarnavadi Guggulu is available in tablet form. It balances the vata and kapha dosha in the body. This medicines must be consumed carefully. The Ayurvedic practitioner must measure your doses strictly. Pregnant, lactating women and children must not consume this remedy.

Besides the two remedies, hot packs bring much relief, if you have pain in your face. Practicing Yoga and Pranayama daily can help the body flush out the ama (toxins) from the body.

Since its been a long time since the lump has appeared and still not regressed better to get your self examined. Lactational mastitis is common and treatable with antibiotics. Avoid breast feeding from the infected breast.

Have you ejaculated inside the condom or inside her. Without ejaculation there is no chance of pregnancy. Very very rarely the liquid that comes before ejaculation can result in pregnancy. It is so rare that you can ignore it
