It is basically lifestyle hormonal disorder, found in most of the females now a days, if not controlled it might be dangerous. Its is hormonal disturbances causing multiple small cysts in ovaries causing irregular periods, excessive hair growth on body, weight gain, thyroid and diabetes in later stages if not controlled. So one need to do regular exercise for weight loss, take adequate nutritious diet including fruits vegetables and low fat dairy products. Quit coffee, canned and fried food. Along with this take medicine to control thyroid.

If the periods you got in dec and jan were in time and flow was also normal, it is not due to pregnancy. If delay is more than 7 days you have to think again if there was any chance of pregnancy which you have overlooked. If not, then you can wait for the normal period.

You have to do physiotherapy muscle strengthening exercise for your lumbar region (back portion, since you are sitting in front of the computer in office for long time. Any medication or laser treatment is only temporary relief. Physiotherapy is a global treatment.

गर्भावस्था में आयुर्वेदिक आहार

गर्भावस्था में किसी भी महिला के लिए पौष्टिक आहार अधिक महत्वपूर्ण हो जाता है। यह न केवल मां के लिए बल्कि होने वाले बच्चे के स्वास्‍थ्‍य के लिए भी अत्यंत आवश्याक होता है। इसलिए गर्भवती महिला की आहार योजना में पौष्टिक पदार्थों का सही मेल होना बेहद जरूरी है। साथ ही, आपको अपने खाने का लिए अतिरिक्त ध्यान रखना होता है। लेकिन, जानकारों की नजर में आयुर्वेद किसी भी गर्भवती महिला के लिए बेहद उपयोगी आहार योजना हो सकती है। गर्भावस्था में खाने-पीने के मामले में आयुर्वेद विश्वसनीय उपाय है। आयुर्वेद गर्भवती महिलाओं के लिए एक आदर्श प्रोटोकॉल है।

आयुर्वेद आहार

आयुर्वेद आहार को 3 श्रेणियों सात्विक, राजसिक, और तामसिक में बांटा जाता है। सात्विक आहार ताजा और पौष्टिक होता है, राजसिक आहार ऊर्जावान, और तामसिक आहार कुछ हद तक भारी और सुस्त होता है। इन सब में से सात्विक भोजन गर्भावस्था के दौरान सबसे अच्छा आयुर्वेदिक आहार माना जाता है।
आइए जानें, गर्भावस्था में आयुर्वेदिक आहार मेन्यू के बारे में-
• आयुर्वेद के अनुसार, गर्भधारण से पहले कम से कम 3 महीने तक सात्विक आहार करना चाहिए। इस आहार को ताजा फल आड़ू, आम और नारियल के रूप में मिलाकर करना चाहिए।
• गर्भावस्था के दौरान आयुर्वेद आहार में बासमती चावल को बेहतर विकल्प के तौर पर देखा जाता है। मीठे आलू, अंकुरित अनाज और स्क्वैश सब्जियां उनके उच्च पोषण के महत्व की वजह से सूची से बाहर नहीं रह सकते।
• मां बनने जा रही महिला तरल या घी के साथ या दूध के साथ मिश्रित चावल खा सकती है। मछली एक गर्भवती महिला के लिए स्वस्थ आहार है। लेकिन लाल मांस खाने से बचना चाहिए। इसे भी पढ़े- (गर्भावस्‍था में न लेने योग्‍य आहार)
• हर सुबह एक गिलास फलों का ताजा रस पीना चाहिए।
• दलिया और अनाज खाएं।
• गर्भावस्था के दौरान आयुर्वेदिक आहार में विटामिन सी भी आता है। जो माँ और बच्चे दोनों के लिए बहुत महत्वपूर्ण है। गाजर, टमाटर में प्रचुर मात्रा में विटामिन सी होता है। इसलिए दोपहर के भोजन में इसे शामिल करें।
• भ्रूण के विकास के बारे में बात करे, तो गर्भावस्था के पहले तीन महीने अत्यधिक महत्वपूर्ण हैं। भ्रूण के विकास के लिए दूध और पानी, नारियल पानी और फलों के रस जरूर पिएं।
• 7 महीने के दौरान नमक और वसा की मात्रा को कम करना आवश्यक है।
• आयुर्वेद आहार में गेहूं, राई, जई, अंकुरित, सेम, मसूर, रोटी, सोया सेम, और सूखे मटर आते है। इन खाद्य पदार्थों में प्रोटीन का खजाना होता है, और गर्भावस्था के लिए एकदम सही आयुर्वेदिक आहार है। आलू, पालक, बादाम, अंजीर, अंगूर और सूखे मेवे भी एक भ्रूण के लिए अच्छे आहार है।
गर्भावस्था आहार का सही चयन वास्तव में बच्चे के मानसिक और शारीरिक स्वास्थ्य का फैसला करता हैं। इस समय के दौरान स्वास्थ्य के प्रति जागरूक होना बहुत जरूरी है। और इस दौरान आप आयुर्वेदिक गर्भावस्था आहार पर पूरा विश्वास कर सकती हैं

Please note the following in respect to your queries: The contraceptive coil comes in two different types: copper-based intrauterine devices (IUD) and hormonal intrauterine devices (sometimes known as IUS – intrauterine system). Both are essentially made of plastic, then either "coated" with copper or hormones. Both methods of IUD contraception are inserted into the uterus to provide long-term and highly effective protection against pregnancy (above 99% effectiveness). This protection lasts for 5-10 years. They do not protect against sexually transmitted infections. A.Advantages of the Copper Contraceptive Coil The copper coil works for about 10 years. You need to attend regular check-ups to make sure that the coil is still in place. Contraception with the coil is about 98-99% effective over a period of 5 years. The biggest advantage of using a contraceptive coil is that you don't need to think about contraception every time you have sex. Except a risk of heavier periods, copper IUD contraception doesn't usually cause side effects because it doesn't rely on hormones to prevent pregnancy. B.Disadvantages of the Copper Contraceptive Coil Your doctor needs to implant the IUD. You'll need to go back to your doctor one month later, who will check whether the coil is still placed correctly. Regular follow-ups are necessary. In terms of side effects, some women experience heavier and more painful periods with the copper-based contraceptive coil. This can be a problem if you are already prone to heavy and painful periods. If that applies to you, this type of contraception might not be right for you. Other side effects are uncommon but include: Cramps Nausea Backache Vaginal discharge Inflammation of the vagina Pelvic infection (uterus), which usually happens within three weeks after insertion Ectopic pregnancy (egg implanting outside the womb) – very small risk but very serious. An absence of periods and lower abdominal pain are the main symptoms Your doctor will check for signs of infection in the 3-4 weeks after the contraceptive coil has been inserted. Another (rare) risk is that the IUD comes out or slips out of its place – which is most likely to happen during the first 3 months. If this happens, you should see your doctor as soon as possible. You can also try to check the threads that come with it to see if it is in place.

Hi, today I consulted with doctor n suggested me to have come-50 n Melmet-500. We are planning for Children. I do have Pcod in both ovaries with centimeter follicles. What are the benefits and side effects of come-50?

PGDHHM, MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
Thx for the query. Polycystic ovarian syndrome is a common cause of anovulation and infertility in women. These women do not ovulate (release eggs) regularly and therefore have irregular menstrual periods. Clome 50 and metforfin are used together to cause ovulation in women with pcod. Continue with your medication. Common side effects of clome include abnormal vaginal bleeding, breast discomfort, headache, and vomiting. Weight loss ans daily exercise is very important part of treatment of pcos. Get your pregnancy test done once. Hope this helps you.

Gynaecologist,
You and your wife need to get a series of tests done to find out the cause. These will include your wife's hormonal tests and x-ray to check her fallopian tubes. And your semen analysis. Treatment will then depend on the cause.

PCOD- Diet You Must Follow!

B.A. Sanskrit, BAMS, M.A. Sanskrit, MS -Gynaecology Ayurveda
Ayurveda, Thane

What is PCOD?

PCOD or Polycystic Ovarian Disease is a disorder that causes innumerable hormonal disorders. It causes disruption in the normal menstrual cycle, often delaying it. Having been diagnosed with PCOD makes a woman prone to diabetes, cholesterol and cancer. A large number of cysts develop on the ovaries which enlarge when afflicted by this condition. PCOD can increase the chances of severe muscle spasms during one’s periods.

Causes Of PCOD-

  1. The cysts are mostly caused due to hormonal changes and fluctuations.

  2. It could be genetic.

  3. PCOD can also be a result of an unhealthy lifestyle that includes little rest, inadequate sleep and unwholesome diet lacking in the right nutrients.

Symptoms Of PCOD-

  1. Acne

  2. Excessive growth of facial hair

  3. Weight gain

  4. Difficulty in losing weight

  5. Excessive hair on body as well, including chest, stomach and back

  6. Irregular menstrual cycle. Women may miss their periods, or bleed more than once a month

  7. Extremely heavy bleeding

  8. Severe pain and muscular cramps during menstruation

  9. Problems getting pregnant

  10. Infertility

  11. High blood pressure

  12. High cholesterol

  13. Depression

  14. Other serious hormonal disorders

  15. It can lead to diabetes

  16. It can lead to repeated miscarriages

  17. A major risk of PCOD if left untreated, is that it can lead to endometrial cancer

Diet For PCOD-

A healthy diet along with physical activities and abstinence from smoking can help to reduce the symptoms of PCOD and prevent the disease.

  1. Increase the intake of fresh, green vegetables.

  2. Cutting down on junk, fried food and most importantly, processed food.

  3. Abstaining from or greatly reducing the intake of alcohol.

  4. Including lots of fibre, roughage in the diet.

  5. Cutting down on sugary, aerated drinks.

  6. Including lean proteins in the diet.

  7. Reduce dairy products as milk may raise the levels of testosterones in the body.

  8. Reducing or eliminating consumption of caffeine may help to increase chances of a fertile reproductive system.

  9. Prevent yourself from giving in to unhealthy food cravings. Eat small healthy meals at regular intervals.

  10. Include fruits, nuts and colourful veggies in your diet.

Give her high protein simple diet like lots of milk, eggs & nuts, non veg digestive food. After world war 2, the height of an average britisher increased by inches due to high protein diet as their parents were short, they were fed on potatoes during the war. Genetics do play a role but good diet can do modifications.
