Hello, Growth hormones plays a major role in achieving milestones of the body. If you have a low hormone level dont go for a synthetic/chemical replacement of hormones as it is risky and can cause serious disabilities, grow for herbal supplements and medicines for your complaints. Practice yogasanas,they stimulate the Pitutary gland and can accelerate your slow growth along with the herbs.

Dear lybrate user, according to my opinion once mensis less is not very seriously for health problems. But the problem persists and repeat two or three times then it is related with hormonal imbalances.

I am 25 yrs female. I missed my last period which usually comes in middle of month n thick white vaginal discharge is present some day. Even feeling tired, loss of appetite, irritable and warm body this days. I hope I am not pregnant or have gynecological problem.

M.B.S.(HOMEO), MD - Homeopathy
Homeopath, Visakhapatnam
Vaginal discharge is normal and varies during your menstrual cycle. Before ovulation (the release of the egg), there is a lot of mucous produced, up to 30 times more than after ovulation. It is also more watery and elastic during that phase of your cycle. You may want to wear panty liners during that time. The things to be worried about include if the discharge has a yellow or green color, is clumpy like cottage cheese, or has a bad odor.

A couple who is otherwise not having any problem, is usually advised to try to conceive for at least 1 year before check ups for infertility are done. In your case, few invest have been done which are normal. Kindly get your husband's semen analysis done. If that is normal, your menses are regular and without any problems, your age is less than 30, then you can try for a year easily, before any further tests are done to find the cause of infertility.

Pcos is a genetically inherited condition. It does not go away once diagnosed. What you need to do is try and maintain a normal body weight with diet and exercise and have medicines you doctor has prescribed. If you can successfully maintain your body weight to normal then your medicine requirement will gradually reduce.

11 Ways To Escape Water Borne Diseases This Monsoon

11 Ways To Escape Water Borne Diseases This Monsoon

Water borne diseases are easily contracted during rainy season and tend to spread very fast. They could be parasitic, viral & bacterial and are transmitted through contaminated fresh water, usually. To prevent seasonal diseases viz. malaria, worms, cholera, diarrhea, malaria, dysentery, etc. take the following steps before hand.

1) Avoid Water Stagnation - Make sure that there is no water accumulated anywhere around your home or office. If storing water, change it every day. Very common examples of stored water in India are coolers and water drums. Ensure they are cleaned and the water stored is either used up or changed regularly.
2) Use Clean Water - Always use clean water to cook, to wash hands & vegetables and also to brush your teeth.
3) Wash Your Hands - Always wash your hands well with clean water and soap before eating, cooking or feeding.
4) Avoid Pre-Cut Fruits - Avoid eating pre-cut/peeled fruits and vegetables, especially the ones sold in roadside stalls. Cut or peel them yourself and eat instantly.
5) Use Antiseptic - Put a few drops of antiseptics in the water you take your bath with. This will take care of any skin infections that might be lingering.
6) Boil Drinking Water - Drink only boiled/filtered water.
7) Clean Before Use - Always store water in clean containers. Take special care in ensuring the containers used to store drinking, cooking and bathing water, are clean.
8) No Street Food - Avoid all kinds of street foods. Its the riskiest.
9) Cover Stored Water - Close overhead tanks.
10) Avoid Dampness - For asthmatics, make sure that clothes and carpets are well-aired. There should not be in fungal growth in shoes, furnitures, etc.
11) Don’t Stay Wet - If you are diabetic, make sure your feet don't stay wet. Dry them as soon as possible.

Usg is normal, that's fine. But as you are already 37, we have little time. So, we have to start at the urgent basis- we need to check both of the husband and wife to detect where the exact problem lies, so that we can correct it by the earliest. If no disease is found or when the disease cannot be corrected within short period, we have to bypass it by various methods. Don't give up hope.

If your baby is active, healthy and playful then there is nothing to be worried about. But further to make your baby's diet more wholesome as she is now 10 months you can add 1. Mashed banana 2. Soaked and crushed cereals 3. Top milk (preferably cow's milk) 4. Mashed boiled eggs 5. In addition to as much breast milk she intakes feed her as many times she wishes. Frequent meals without a long gap in between help children grow best.
