You generally dont have periods for four to six moths after delivery . This is called lactation amenorrhoea. Its natures own way to maintain gap between kids, but sometimes you are likely to get pregnant even in the absence of periods. Better wait for periods,let the nature have its way. Use precaution meanwhile.

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and Homeopathic treatment

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and Homeopathic treatment

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome/Diseases:- 
Polycystic ovarian diseases (PCOD), is a common endocrine system disorder of women in their reproductive age. In this condition, there is an imbalance of the sex hormones like estrogen and progesterone of a woman. This causes enlarged ovaries that contain tiny collections of fluid (ovarian cysts), referred as follicles which might be settled in each ovary. These cysts are often seen during an ultrasound exam.

Cause of PCOD:-
The exact cause of PCOS is unknown. Hormonal imbalances and genetics play a major role. Production of the hormone androgen in excess may be another contributing factor. Androgen is a male sex hormone that womens bodies also produce. This overproduction can affect the development and release of eggs during ovulation. Excess insulin may cause high androgen levels.
Symptoms of PCOS:-

  • Irregular menses (usually delayed)
  • Weight gain and difficulty in losing weight
  • Acne and Dandruff in scalp
  • Abdominal pain
  • Excessive hair growth on the face, chest, back
  • Thinning of hair
  • Infertility and Miscarriage
  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • High cholesterol

 
Diagnosis of PCOS:-
There is no definitive test for PCOS. Diagnosis depends on medical history and symptoms of patients. The physical and pelvic examination can help to find out the signs of PCOS. 
Diagnostic tests:-

  • Thyroid function tests (TSH).
  • Fasting glucose tests to measure blood sugar levels.
  • Lipid level tests to assess the amount of cholesterol.
  • USG (Ultra Sonography)

 
Complications of PCOD:

 
Homeopathic management for PCOD:
Polycystic Ovarian disease (PCOD) can be treated by Homoeopathic medicines. Homoeopathic medicines are very safe and can cure PCOD permanently and without any side effect. The complete cure of PCOD is a time-consuming process and it cannot be expected in a few days. It requires complete observation regarding the change of symptoms in the patient and frequent clinical follow-ups.

Fact: The released eggs remain viable for almost 12-14 hours and a woman can get pregnant after an intercourse done two days after ovulation and five days before ovulation.

3. Myth: Infertility occurs due to stress.
Fact: Ovulation can surely get delayed due to hormone suppression, but infertility does not occur due to stress.

4. Myth: Sperms stay active for few hours.
Fact: Sperms stay alive at least for five days.

5. Myth: Men with a higher sexual drive will have a normal sperm count.
Fact: There is no relation in between fertility and virility. Sometimes, it has been found that men having a higher sex drive do not produce sperms.

6. Myth: Women have to wait for three months to conceive after stopping the usage of contraceptive pills.
Fact: As soon as a woman stops pill usage, hormonal levels go back to normal condition, as a result of which ovulation begins immediately.

7. Myth: Only females have infertility troubles.
Fact: Both women and men suffer from infertility troubles as per the current scientific studies.

8. Myth: Ovulation occurs in a woman on the 14th day of menstrual cycle.
Fact: Ovulation can be calculated by counting 14 days backwards from the past menstrual cycle's last day.

प्रेग्नेंट होने के टिप्स - How To Pregnant Tips?

प्रेग्नेंट होने के टिप्स - How To Pregnant Tips?

तुरंत और आसानी से गर्भवती होने के तरीके–प्रेग्नेंट होने के टिप्स

एक महिला के लिए बच्चे को जन्म देना काफी प्रसन्नता की बात होती है, और वह इस दिन की काफी प्रतीक्षा करती है।गर्भावस्था की स्थिति अचानक नहीं आती, इसमें गणना का काफी बड़ा हाथ होता है।
गर्भवती होने के लिए आपका फर्टिलाइजेशन (fertilization) अच्छे से होना चाहिए। आपको अपने मासिक धर्म (periodic cycle) का आंकलन करके उसी हिसाब से चलना चाहिए।
शारीरिक सम्बन्ध के फलस्वरूप गर्भवती होने से पहले इस बारे में अच्छे से सोच लें कि आप असल में एक बच्चे को जन्म देना चाहती हैं या नहीं।
इनफर्टिलिटी (infertility) की समस्या से ग्रस्त लोगों को डॉक्टर से सलाह करनी चाहिए तथा गर्भवती होने के अन्य तरीके प्रयोग में लाने चाहिए।
आजकल जीवनशैली में परिवर्तन की वजह से पुरुष और महिलाओं की फर्टिलिटी का स्तर काफी कम हो गया है।

*नीचे गर्भवती होने के कुछ तरीकों के बारे में बताया गया है।*
ज्यादातर जोड़े जो असुरक्षित यौन संबंध प्रस्थापित करते हो उसमे महिला को प्रेगनेंट करने का तरीका, प्रेग्नेंट/गर्भवती होने की (to become pregnant) ज्यादा संभावना होती है|
जिस जोड़े को प्रजनन की समस्या न हो वे प्रेग्नेंट होने के टिप्स,कुछ आसान तरीकों का पालन करके उसमे महिला गर्भवती हो सकती है|

*प्रेगनेंट होने के लिए कुछ सुझाव (instructions for getting pregnant)*
प्रेगनेंट होने के लिए, जोड़े को अपने आप को तनाव से मुक्त रखने की जरुरत है|
तनावग्रस्त रहने से गर्भ रहने में मुश्किलें आ सकती हैं|
*गर्भावस्था के दौरान खून निकलना और उनके कारण*
महिलाओं के लिए अण्डोत्सर्ग का समय जाननेवाले किट का उपयोग करके सही समय का पता लगाना चाहिए।
अण्डोत्सर्ग से पूर्व 24-36 घंटे मूत्र में एलएच की वृद्धि होती है और यह समय प्रेग्नेंट/गर्भवती बनने(to get pregnancy) के लिए लाभकारी होता है|
प्रेगनेंट होने के लिए,
पुरुषों को ज्यादा व्यायाम नहीं करना चाहिए,
गर्म पानी से टब बाथ नहीं लेना चाहिए और ज्यादा तंग कच्छे नहीं पेहेनने चाहिए|

प्रेग्नेंट/गर्भवती होने के बेहतरीन उपाय और प्राकृतिक तरीके (natural ways to get pregnant fast)
अगर लंबे समय बाद भी स्त्री को गर्भ न रहता हो तब वैद्यकीय सलाह की जरुरत पड़ती है|
इसमें कुछ दवाइयां लेनी पड़ती हैं जो आपके प्रेग्नेंट/गर्भवती होने के अवसरों को बढ़ावा देती हैं|

*नीचे दिए गए कुछ प्राकृतिक तरीके महेंगे नहीं होते हैं|*
नियमित रूप से इनका पालन करने पर प्रेग्नेंट/गर्भवती रहने की संभावना बढती है|
यौन संबंध के समय जोड़े कि शारीरिक अवस्था ऐसी हो जिससे पुरुष महिला के साथ गहरा संबंध प्रस्थापित कर सके|
संबंध के बाद महिला को अपनी पीठ पर 15मिनट तक लेटा हुआ रहना आवश्यक है जिससे पुरुष के शुक्राणु स्त्री के बीज तक पहुँच सके|
गर्भनिरोधक गोलियों का सेवन रोक देना चाहिए|
मासिक धर्म का योग्य समय देखकर शरीर संबंध का समय तय किया जा सकता है|
पुरुष और स्त्री को स्वस्थ जीवनशैली का पालन करना जरुरी है|
ड्रग्स और शराब लेना बंद करें|
स्त्री के शरीर में शुक्राणु थोड़े दिनों तक रहते हैं| इसलिए अक्सर संबंध रखना गर्भ रहने में मदद करता है|

*प्रेगनेंट होने के टिप्स.*
गर्भवती होने के तरीके (easiest way to get fast conceive tips in hindi)
कुछ स्त्रियों में आसानी से गर्भ रहता है पर कुछ स्त्रियों के लिए यह बड़ा मुश्किल होता है|
कुछ आसान तरीकों का पालन करके प्रेग्नेंट होने के टिप्स से ऐसी स्त्रियाँ प्रेग्नेंट/गर्भवती हो सकती हैं|

गर्भवती महिलाओं को नींद लाने में सहायता करने के लिए कुछ तरीके
स्त्रियों के शरीर में बीज 12-24घंटे तक फलन के लिए उपलब्ध होते हैं जबकि शुक्राणु ३ से ५ दिनों तक जिंदा रह सकते हैं|
इसलिए 28 दिनों के बाद आनेवाले मासिक धर्म में पहले 11से 21दिन तक संबंध रखने से उपयोग हो सकता है|
अक्सर संबंध रखना गर्भ रहने का आसान तरीका है|
शरीर की ऐसी स्थिति जहाँ शुक्राणु आसानी से बीज तक पहुँच सके ऐसी स्थिति होना मदद करता है|
जोड़े को तनाव मुक्त होना बहुत जरुरी होता है|
अगर ऊपर दिए गए किसी भी सुझाव से प्रेग्नेंट नहीं होती तो डॉक्टर की सलाह लें|

*प्रेग्नेंट होने के लिए क्या करें*
*वज़न घटाना (losing weight)*
कई बार वज़न ज़्यादा होने की वजह से महिलाओं को गर्भधारण करने में दिक्कतें पेश आती हैं।
उन्हें बच्चे को जन्म देने में काफी परेशानी होती है, क्योंकि इस प्रक्रिया में उनके शरीर में जमा वसा एक बाधा बन जाती है।
अतः एक बच्चे को जन्म देने के लिए पुरुष और महिला दोनों का ही स्वस्थ रहना काफी ज़रूरी है।
अत्याधिक वज़न वाली महिलाओं को इनफर्टिलिटी की समस्या होने की संभावना काफी ज़्यादा होती है।
अतः गर्भधारण का प्रयास करने से पहले महिलाओं को 2 से 3 महीने तक व्यायाम करके अपना वज़न कम करने का प्रयास करना चाहिए।

*केमिकल्स से दूर रहें (be away from chemicals)*
कारखानों तथा प्रयोगशालाओं में काम करने वाली महिलाएं रोज़ाना कठोर केमिकल्स के संपर्क में आती हैं।
छपाई के कारखानों तथा फसलों के लिए कीटनाशक बनाने वाले उद्योगों में काम करने वालों को भी इनफर्टिलिटी की समस्या घेर सकती है।
एक बार अगर आपने गर्भधारण का फैसला ले लिया है तो कृपया केमिकल्स से दूर रहें।
अगर संभव हो तो अपना पेशi बदल लें या फिर गर्भावस्था के समय से पहले और बाद के लिए छुट्टी ले लें।
इससे आपके फर्टिलिटी तथा बच्चा दोनों ही सुरक्षित रहेंगे।

*तनाव दूर करें (avoiding stress)*
आजकल ज़्यादातर लोग तनाव के शिकार हैं, और शायद यही वजह गर्भावस्था के स्तर के घटने की भी है।
आजकल सभी लोगों को सारा दिन काम का बोझ तथा तनाव झेलना पड़ता है।
दिमाग में पड़ने वाले प्रभाव के अलावा यह शरीर में उत्पादित होने वाले हॉर्मोन्स (hormones) में भी समस्या उत्पन्न करता है।
अतः तनाव से दूर रहें तथा गर्भधारण का फैसला लेने से पहले हमेशा खुश रहने का प्रयास करें।
आपको अपने बच्चे के बारे में सोचते हुए अपना तनाव कम करना चाहिए।
चिंता की वजह को दूर करने की कोशिश करें।

*सेक्स की प्रक्रिया को दोहराएं (having repeated sex)*
सम्भोग दुनिया में बच्चे को लाने का एक अनोखा और आनंददायक तरीका है।
प्रेगनेंट करने का तरीका में कुछ लोग काम के दबाव तथा अन्य जुड़े कारणों से पर्याप्त मात्रा में सेक्स की क्रिया को अंजाम नहीं दे पाते।
पर अगर आप बच्चा चाहती हैं और एक बार सेक्स से कोई फायदा ना हो तो उर्वर दिनों (fertilizing days) को ध्यान में रखते हुए सेक्स की क्रिया को बार बार दोहराना काफी महत्वपूर्ण साबित होगा। 
महिलाओं का मासिक धर्म (menstrual cycle) 28 से 30 दिनों का होता है, जिसमें से 14 वें दिन वे सबसे ज़्यादा उर्वर अवस्था में रहती हैं। 
आपको इस बात की भी जानकारी होनी चाहिए कि अंडाणु (ovum) का जीवन 24 से 36 घंटों तक का ही रहता है। 
अतः आपको सम्भोग की क्रिया के लिए इस दिन के आसपास के समय का ही चुनाव करना चाहिए। 
इस समय सेक्स में लिप्त होने से गर्भधारण की संभावनाएं काफी बढ़ जाती हैं। 
आपको सम्भोग के बाद दवाई की दुकानों पर उपलब्ध यूरिन टेस्ट किट (urine test kit) से गर्भावस्था की जांच करनी चाहिए।

*गर्भवती होने के उपाय–*
संतुलित खानपान (balanced diet)
जब आपको गर्भधारण की इच्छा हो, उस समय आपको अपने खानपान की तरफ भी काफी ध्यान देना चाहिए।
संतुलित आहार करें जिसमें पर्याप्त मात्रा में प्रोटीन, मिनरल और अन्य पोषक पदार्थ हों (protein, minerals and other nutrients), जिससे कि गर्भधारण की प्रक्रिया में तेज़ी आ जाए। 
हमेशा पोषक भोजन करने की कोशिश करें, जिससे बिना किसी समस्या के आसानी से बच्चे को जन्म दिया जा सके।
आप अपने खानपान में अन्य पूरक आहार (supplements) तथा माइक्रोन्यूट्रिएंट्स (micronutrients) भी शामिल कर सकती है|

Do you lack confidence due to facial pigmentation, I am here to help you.

What is facial pigmentation?

Facial pigmentation refers to the darkening of facial skin dueto overproduction of pigment melanin. Medically, this is known as melasma.

Melasma
In melasma, patches of pigmentation appear on the face, predominantly over the cheeks, nose, forehead and upper lip. The pigmentation varies from yellowish, brownish, bluish to blackish in colour. Chloasma is another term for facial pigmentation in women during pregnancy.

Freckles
Freckles or tiny dark spots appear on the face in certain cases from repeated sun exposure. Freckles are more likely in persons with fair skin.

Why do we get facialpigmentation?

The root cause of facial pigmentation is excess melanin production. Facial pigmentation is very common in women, but may also arise in men. 

The causal factors are many, the major among them being hormonal changes in women during pregnancy, after childbirth, during menopause, from intake of contraceptive pills, from hormone replacement therapy and hypothyroidism. 

Other factors that trigger facial pigmentation are stress, loss of sleep and sunexposure. Heredity also plays an important role in predisposing a person to facial pigmentation. Acne may also lead to scarring and facial pigmentation. 

Factors affecting facial pigmentation:

Vaginal Itching and Irritation - 6 Common Causes Behind it

MBBS, DGO, MD, Fellowship in Gynae Oncology
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Vaginal Itching and Irritation - 6 Common Causes Behind it

The human body is host to many microbes such as bacteria, fungi and other organisms. These organisms are natural to the body and are required for many functions. The female reproductive organ or the vagina is one such organ that is home to many such bacteria that help in maintaining the correct vaginal pH balance, the ultimate requisite for a healthy vagina. 

However, if this delicate balance within the various micro-organisms is disrupted, it may cause problems such as irritation and itching.

Causes of vaginal itching and irritation

  1. Yeast infection: Just like bacteria, yeast is also present within the vagina and is required for a healthy pH balance within it. However, due to various factors, this balance can go topsy-turvy, thus causing yeast infections. The infections may cause a thick white discharge along with excessive itching and irritation.
  2. Skin irritation due to foreign products or contact dermatitis: This problem can occur on the skin of your body as well as the vagina. Dermatitis or irritation may be caused due to perfumes, products such as tampons, or sanitary napkins, detergents used to wash underwear, lubricants, and condoms among others.
  3. Common vaginal infections or bacterial vaginosis: This is the most common form of vaginal infection that women have reported to their gynaecologists. Just like yeast infections occur due to an imbalance in the level of healthy fungi within the vagina, bacterial vaginosis occurs when there is an imbalance with the levels of healthy bacteria within the body.
  4. Sexually transmitted disease or infections: This is also a very common reason for vaginal itching and irritation. Some of the common STDs or infections such as Chlamydia, Gonorrhea and genital herpes can all cause irritation and in most cases, will result in itching. Pubic lice, also commonly referred to as crabs, can cause itching and are mostly transferred through sexual contact.
  5. Hormonal changes within the body: This is another common and major factor for changes within the human body and can especially create problems within the female reproductive systems. If you start or stop taking contraceptive pills, have irregular periods, are pregnant or approaching menopause, your hormones may fluctuate a lot. This will result in changes within the vagina and thus, may cause itching and irritation.
  6. Skin disorders such psoriasis and eczema: Certain underlying conditions within the body may cause problems, such as psoriasis and eczema. These may end up causing infections near the vagina and result in itchiness and irritation as well.

Treatments

Although you can try out home remedies, it is advisable to go to a doctor and get yourself checked for either gynaecological issues or underlying physiological issues which may be causing the problems in the first place. Some of the medications that could be prescribed to you could be anti-inflammatory drugs as well as antibiotics, either in the form of oral medications or topical ointments.
