There are several different causes for women to feel pain in their vaginal areas during pregnancy, and the most common one is caused by the developing baby. It can begin during the second trimester, but most pregnant women who feel an intensely sharp pain in their vaginas are simply feeling the baby pressing down on their pelvic nerves. The closer a woman gets to her delivery date, the lower the fetus drops which in turn can cause the ligaments and the nerves in the pelvic region to become pinched and stretched. Most women only experience this sharp pain for a few seconds, but it can last for up to a couple of minutes. The best treatment is to simply lie down on the left side to let the baby readjust, but sitting can also help relieve the pain and pressure.

First thing- you had sex during your safe period that is your chances of getting pregnant were minimal. But you can not be 100% sure. Ecps can work for you if they are consumed within 2-3 days otherwise you need to wait for your next period. If you miss your period by 7-10 days, you should take pregnancy test.

Hi lybrate-user, I hope you're doing good. If you're talking about Creatine monohydrate the basic dosage is 5gms and can go upto 20-25gms depending upon an individual. If you're kidney filtration is working fine and you're drinking optimum water you're good to go. There are no side effects of creatine, this has been proven and scientifically researched so you do not have to worry about but if you're sensitive to it you might get abdominal cramps and diarrhea so if this persist I recommend you to go for Creatine HCL OR Kre Alkalyn Creatine. Also there's as such no side effects even if you miss the daily water intake but I recommend you to drink it. For any further help you can connect with me and Ill be glad to assist you. Thanks & Regards

Cholecystitis is an inflammation of the gallbladder wall; it may be either acute or chronic. It is almost always associated with cholelithiasis, or gallstones, which lodge in the gallbladder, cystic duct, or common bile duct. Lithiasis (stone formation) in the gallbladder is called cholelithiasis. Gallstones are formed in the gallbladder but may pass distally into other parts of the biliary tract such as the cystic duct, common bile duct, pancreatic duct or the ampulla of Vater. Inflammation of the gallbladder can be caused by gallstones, excessive alcohol use, infections, or even tumors that cause bile buildup. But the most common cause of cholecystitis is gallstones. The body can react to the gallstone irritation by causing the gallbladder walls to become swollen and painful. Treatment For symptomatic stones: Laparoscopic cholecystectomy or sometimes stone dissolution using ursodeoxycholic acid For asymptomatic stones: Expectant management Most asymptomatic patients decide that the discomfort, expense, and risk of elective surgery are not worth removing an organ that may never cause clinical illness. However, if symptoms occur, gallbladder removal (cholecystectomy) is indicated because pain is likely to recur and serious complications can develop.

Brown Sugar Vs. Plain Sugar: Which One Is Healthier?

Brown Sugar Vs. Plain Sugar: Which One Is Healthier?

They say, not everything sweet necessarily leaves a sweet taste. True to that, sugar, whether brown or white, is often considered detrimental to health. Not only does it trigger glucose imbalance in the body, it also heightens the potential of cardiovascular diseases. However, if a comparison is drawn between white and brown sugar, the latter is assumed to be healthier. Brown sugar is essentially granulated sugar with molasses, so it contains greater amount of minerals and consequently is recommended over white sugar. Molasses, being a more natural constituent, reaps more health benefits in comparison to white sugar.

The usual process of manufacturing sugar involves extracting the juice from sugar cane, which then is centrifuged to form finer granules. Unlike white sugar, it goes into further processing; brown sugar is blended with molasses. This enhances the natural constituency of the sugar and makes it more refined. Brown sugar has certain explicit advantages. Often, white sugar includes synthetic flavors which may cause further damage to your health. As against this, brown sugar is slightly more beneficial.

Brown sugar comes with few other discrete advantages. A large number of weight watchers vouch for it. Compared to white sugar, brown sugar supplies a fairly reduced amount of calories. Moreover, brown sugar is surfeit in minerals. It provides one with a decent quantum of calcium, magnesium, iron and potassium. With regard to taste, brown sugar has a quainter taste than white sugar. Brown sugar, on account of the greater proportion of molasses content, usually is less saccharine than white sugar.

While the minimal processing that goes into making brown sugar enhances its nutritive value, it really isn't a healthy alternative to plain sugar. True, it retains more health enzymes than plain sugar, but it does not really benefit your body. Many perceive that the hype around the health benefits of brown sugar is a marketing strategy and gimmicky stance to increase its market values.

The 4 Essential Constituents of a Detox DIET

The 4 Essential Constituents of a Detox DIET

A detox diet is a temporary food habit, which involves detoxifying your body without causing much stress. Detoxifying includes cleansing your body of toxins, bacteria, and viruses that build up inside it. It usually lasts for a few days, and a detox diet consists of foods that are easy to digest and low in fat and protein. These foods help liver function and increase your metabolism, which brings about the detoxification progress.

Some of the constituents of a detox diet are:

1) Drinking copious amounts of water - Water performs many bodily functions like regulating body temperature, hydrating the body, regulating bowel movements etc. One such vital function is flushing out toxins. The more water you drink, the more toxins get flushed out of your body. Drinking eight glasses of water each day is advisable. Plus, water also helps to control hunger.

2) Munch on fruits and vegetables - Replacing your daily diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables, which are rich in fiber, can help remove toxins. It also provides the body with necessary nutrients and antioxidants. Fruits rich in fiber are spinach, broccoli, avocado, blueberries, beans, artichoke and many others.

3) Eating oranges, lemons or limes - Citric acid helps to dissolve toxins within the body and increases and improves the functioning of the liver. Lemons contain the highest amounts of citric acid and eating them on a daily basis can be highly beneficial.

4) Drinking herbal tea - Herbal tea, which is a huge source of antioxidants and water, helps to flush toxins out of the body. Green tea is a good example of this and is loaded with anti-inflammatory properties as well.

How To Snack In A More Healthy Way

Post Graduate Diploma In Nutrition And Dietetics, B.Sc. - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Delhi
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!

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.

Hello, If there has been no sperm penetration, there are still fair chances to get pregnant as there has been unprotected intercourse. I would recommend doing a urine pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy. If the result is negative, you are not pregnant. If the result is positive, you are pregnant so you would require consulting a gynecologist for further evaluation and management.
