How many meals should you really have in a day?

How many meals should you really have in a day?

How many meals should you really have in a day?

With the advancement in nutritional science, researchers have realised that lesser gap between meals means lesser-stored fat which in turn also helps to control blood sugar, boost metabolism and aids in weight management. After three hours of a meal our blood sugar starts falling and after four hours the digestion is complete. After 5 hours we are ready to gobble up whatever comes in our way as the body is looking for a way to refuel. This may lead to consuming high-calorie food.

Eating at regular intervals can save you from binging, keep your blood sugar level stable and help you stay energised. Also, digestion itself is work for the body and the activity leads to burning calories. However, one needs to be careful and not consume very high-calorie meals as that would increase the risk of chronic diseases.

Since everybody is different, there cannot be a set number of meals prescribed for everyone. It depends on when a person feels hungry and how that person would like to deal with it. But you need to understand your body's need for replenishment and provide the nourishment it requires. Hence, according to your body's requirement you should have small meals at short intervals which could range from six to eight in a day.

See there is no treatment that can guarantee twin pregnancy. Still if you go for ivf, it ll increase your chances of twins. Better ye hain k single baby hi ho. Twins pregnancy is complicated at times. You can try to conceive on your own, if you don't conceive then you need treatment.

It is ok for few time, but try to stop sex for a week, to make back your bleeding point normal as of it is a chance of some local tissue of skin damage while sexual activity. So no need to worry just make rest for penis for a while and then consult me about your condition.

Safety of Emergency Contraception

Certification in Robotic surgery in Gynecology, MRCOG (LONDON), Fellowship in Gyn Endoscopy, MD - Gynaecologist & Obstetrician, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Safety of Emergency Contraception

Emergency is helpful in preventing pregnancies post unprotected sexual activity. It can be used in case of contraceptive failure, in case of sexual assault, incorrect use of contraceptives and unprotected sex.

Emergency contraception can be done by three methods. These are emergency contraceptive pills, combined oral contraceptive pills and copper intrauterine devices.

The copper IUD is considered to be one of the most effective forms of emergency contraception, when it is inserted within 5 days of unprotected sexual activity.

However, the emergency contraceptive pill regimen as per WHO is:

  • 1 dose of levonorgestrel 1.5 mg, or 1 dose of ulipristal 30 mg, taken within 5 days (120 hours) of unprotected intercourse

  • The Yuzpe regimen which consists of 2 doses of combined oral contraceptive pills

What is Emergency Contraception?

Emergency contraception is usually referred to as the contraception which is used to prevent a pregnancy within the first 5 days after an unprotected sexual activity. It is used post failures of contraception, coerced unprotected sex, rape or misuse of contraception.

Emergency contraception is only effective in the first few days after an intercourse and before the egg has released from the ovary, and before there is fertilization between the egg and the sperm. The emergency contraception can do no harm to an interrupted pregnancy and a developing embryo.

Who needs emergency contraception?

Any girl or woman who is at her reproductive age might need an emergency contraception in case of an unprotected sexual intercourse.

Uses:

  1. Breakage, slippage or displacement of barrier methods
  2. Three or more missed OCPills for more than 12 hours
  3. Missed Mini pill for more than 3 hours
  4. Missed Desoestrel pills for more than 12 hours
  5. DMPA injections taken more than 2 weeks late
  6. Miscalculated dates of last period and present ovulation side effects

These are meant only for emergency contraception and NOT AS A REGULAR CONTRACEPTIVE. It involves pumping of a hormone inside your body at levels which are 5 times higher than normal. hence excessive and unnecessary use may cause irregularity in the period cycles and an adverse effect on the menstrual health over a period of time. Ideally it should be taken under guided medical supervision.

In what situations should emergency contraception be used?

Emergency contraception can be used after a sexual intercourse. These include:

  • In case of no use of contraceptives

  • If it is a case of rape or coerced sex, where the woman was not protected

  • When there is a contraceptive failure, like

    • breakage

    • incorrect use or slippage

    • OCPILLS,

    • mini pills

    • DMPA

  • 3 or more missed combined oral contraceptives, progestogen-only pill (minipill) taken more than 3 hours late, desogestrel-containing pill 12 hours or more, norethisterone enanthate (NET-EN) progestogen-only injection taken more than 2 weeks late

  • Delay in placing or dislodgement or early removal of the skin patch or the hormonal ring

  • Breaking, dislodgement, tearing or early removal of cervical cap or diaphragm

  • Failure of withdrawal that is ejaculation the external genitalia or vagina

  • The spermicide tablet failure

  • Miscalculating the periods, failure from using a barrier on the fertile days

  • Expulsion of an intrauterine contraceptive device (IUD)

Methods of Emergency Contraception:

There are three emergency contraception methods:

  1. Copper-bearing intrauterine devices (IUDs)

  2. Emergency contraception pills (ECPs)

  3. Combined oral contraceptive pills or the Yuzpe method

I have fungus over vagina? I tried many formulations from azole family. But no use. Please suggest what should I do?

DGO, MD, MRCOG, CCST, Accredation in Colposcopy
Gynaecologist, Kolkata
Sometimes fungal infections can be very resistant to treatment. I suggest you get additional blood tests like fasting and pp blood sugar to rule out diabetes. Also it's best to confirm infection by taking vaginal swabs and checking drug sensitivities.

Hello She is absolutely correct. During sexual intercourse, you do not insert penis inside her uterus. Only inside her vagina. So do not worry. IUCD is a good method of family planning. Only problem is first 3 to 4 months might be painful and heavy periods.

10 Signs You Might Be Pregnant!

MBBS, MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology

10 Signs You Might Be Pregnant!

When you’re trying to conceive a baby, waiting for your next period can be a test of patience. If your menstrual cycle varies from month to month or if you haven’t been keeping track of your cycle dates you may not even be sure of when your period is to begin. However, a missed period is not the only sign of pregnancy. Here are ten others signs to watch out for.

  1. Sensitive nipples: As your hormone levels increase so does the blood supply to the breasts and nipples. This can make you feel extra sensitivity in the form of a tingling sensation around the nipples.
  2. Nausea: Morning sickness affects most pregnant women but some women are spared this experience. Morning sickness can start as early as four weeks into the pregnancy and is marked by feelings of queasiness and an urge to vomit. Despite its name, morning sickness can affect a woman at any time of the day.
  3. Frequent urination: A combination of surging hormones and a higher volume of blood in the body can make your kidneys work extra hard. From the 6th week of pregnancy onwards, women find themselves urinating more frequently. This may also be accompanied by a burning sensation.
  4. Food cravings: Cravings for ice cream, pickles etc. is often joked about when it comes to pregnancy, but this can be one of the first signs of pregnancy. After conceiving a baby, a woman is likely to go off certain flavours even though they may be things she liked otherwise. You may also notice a metallic taste in your mouth and change in your sensitivity to the smell of things as well.
  5. Tiredness: As the body gears up to nurture a growing foetus, mothers find themselves abnormally tired. Pregnancy hormones also add to this feeling along with making you upset and emotional. This fatigue is often highest in the first and third trimester.
  6. Darker nipples: Pregnancy hormones can also cause changes in the appearance of your skin. One of the first noticeable changes is darkening of the nipples. Your nipples may also become more erect and the bumps around them may become more pronounced.
  7. Spotting: It is easy to mistake light bleeding for a period, but if you are pregnant this is known as implantation bleeding. The reason for this spotting is not known but it occurs as the fertilised egg settles into the uterus. This spotting may also be accompanied by mild cramps.
  8. Bloating: Pregnancy hormones can make you feel bloated especially in the abdominal area. This feeling is similar to the feeling some women have just before their menstrual cycle begins.
  9. Mood swings: Pregnancy hormones affect neurotransmitters in the brain. For some women, this can cause heightened emotions while for others it can lead to depression and anxiety.
  10. High basal body temperature: Basal temperature refers to your lowest body temperature and is usually taken as soon as you wake up. If your basal temperature has been higher than normal for more than two weeks consecutively, it may be a sign that you are pregnant. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist and ask a free question.

Will the follicle rupture every month? When I did follicular study, I had injection (HCG) to rupture it. Does that mean that I have issues in ovulating? Will it be because of any hormonal imbalance?

Egg remains alive for 48 hours. Hcg is given to prolong the staying power of egg so that it doesn't break but gets fertilised. Yes in a normal fertile woman 1 or 4 eggs are seen every month at different stages of development day 10 onwards till day 14 when follicles rupture.

Recurrent mouth ulcers and homeopathy
Mouth ulcers/ apthous ulcers/ canker sores) are shallow painful sores inside the mouth. They occur on the inside of lips, the insides of cheeks and the base of gums or under the tongue. They appear as a painful white or yellow ulcer surrounded by a bright red area. they start with burning sensation followed by a red spot which then progresses into an ulcer. healing takes place within 2-3 days Mild to moderate fever may also accompany them. These ulcers are more common in women than men and more often occur between the ages of 10 and 40.

What causes these ulcers?
Several factors that seem to trigger outbreaks of these apthous ulcers have been identified. Any one or a combination of them can lead to such ulcers. These factors are emotional stress, deficiencies in diet (Iron, B-12, and folic acid), menstrual periods, oral hygiene, allergy to food substances and trauma sites in mouth.It also seems that some have it running in their families.

HOMOEOPATHIC TREATMENT-
Homoeopathic Medicines that are often used for treating apthous ulcerations in mouth are Borax, Acid Sulf, Acid Nitric, Merc Sol and Kali Chloride.
