    There are some commonest misconceptions about infertility and these misconceptions should be eliminated as soon as possible so that the actual facts can be known. There are many online sites where you can find detailed information on the scientific explanations regarding infertility and you can follow them.

    List of myths and facts regarding infertility

    1. Myth: The menstrual cycle of a woman is for 28 days.
    Fact: Normal cycle ranges between 21 to 36 days.

    2. Myth: A woman can have pregnancy on the day one of menstrual cycle.
    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.

    9. Myth: Daily sex can increase conceiving chances.
    Fact: During ovulation, having sex each day, especially in between 12 to 16th day of the cycle can be the best timing.

    10. Myth: Fertility troubles occur at 35.
    Fact: Peak fertility timing in a woman's life is 20 and this might continue until late 30s. Fertility troubles might even arrive at a younger age. With age, conception chances get declined, especially after 35.

    During the natural course of events, a woman's body starts its reproductive phase with menarche and at about 50 years of age, attains menopause. This is when the reproductive function ceases and the ovaries stop producing the hormone estrogen and progesterone. This is medically termed early or premature menopause.

    Menopause that occurs before 40 years of age is termed as Premature Menopause; it is due to primary ovarian insufficiency and occurs in 1% of the women. If it occurs between 45 to 50 years, it is termed as early menopause.

    Causes of premature menopause
    Normal ageing, family history, genetic disorders, autoimmune disorders, toxins, and surgery are some reasons that could lead to premature menopause.

    Estrogen and progesterone have a lot of beneficial effects on a woman's body. Reduction in their levels leads to some of the below changes:

    - Emotional changes like mood swings, irritability, and in some cases depression, especially in premature menopause.
    - Irregular cycles before complete cessation of the menstrual cycles.
    - General mucosal dryness leading to vaginal dryness, dry skin, dry eyes.
    - There also would be urinary incontinence and reduced sex drive due to reduced hormone levels.
    - For women who still would want to have children, infertility would be a big cause for concern. This could lead to other emotional issues, worsening the depression.
    - Bones lose their density and get weak and are more prone to fracture. This leads to Osteoporosis.
    - Postmenopause, women are more prone to heart attacks and stroke, leading to cardiovascular health issues. Though not fully proven, this is believed to be true as the good role that estrogen plays on blood vessels is negated with menopause.
    - Menopause leads to accelerated damage of genetic structures, thereby leading to faster ageing. This also leaves a feeling in the women of being less attractive and less desirable.

    There is also a good news, that after menopause women are at lesser risk of cancer especially, breast and ovarian.
    However, it is not easy for women to handle premature menopause. The body undergoes some changes much earlier than expected, and it requires a lot of support and caring and comforting to come to terms with it especially, if associated with infertility or chemotherapy for cancer. Emotional issues of not being able to have children and feeling less attractive require frank talks to boost the person's confidence and increase self-worthiness.

    It is easier said than done, but one of the key ways to handle premature menopause is an open discussion.

    Fast Food Facts

    What is fast food and why is it so popular?
    Fast food, junk food, processed food, ready-meals - Whatever label you give it, it all comes down to the same thing - food that's been through the factory and had much of its goodness removed. Fast food is quick, convenient and usually inexpensive and hence children, teenagers and busy youngsters are easy target. However, it is little known that fast food is inexpensive because it is usually made with cheaper ingredients such as high saturated fat meat, refined grains with added sugar and fats, etc
    Is fast food bad?
    There is no such thing as a 'bad' food. All foods can fit into a healthy meal plan. It's true that fast food is usually high in fat, calories, cholesterol and sodium, but eating fast food every once in a while is not going to cause problems. If we eat too much fast food over a long period of time, though, it can lead to health problems like high blood pressure, heart disease and obesity.

    If you are having fast food more than once a week, try to make healthier choices. Here are some tips:
    - Choose foods that are boiled over fried, such as a grilled chicken sandwich instead of fried chicken or chicken nuggets
    - Choose soups that are not cream based. If the name of the soup includes the word cream, such as 'Creamy Tomato Soup', avoid ordering it
    - Have low-fat salad dressings instead of the full-fat kind
    - Have a salad or soup instead of fries
    - Use yoghurt, mustard or ketchup instead of mayonnaise
    - Order smaller portions - the smaller the portion size, the lesser the calories
    - When ordering a burger or sandwich, select leaner meats like grilled chicken instead of fried items such as burgers or steak and avoid adding cheese
    - Choose water, low-fat milk, or diet sodas instead of regular sodas, fruit drinks, milkshakes or whole milk
    - When ordering pizza, add veggies instead of meat, and get thin crust instead of deep dish
    - If fruits and veggies are available, try to add them into your meal. For example, have lettuce and tomato on sandwiches or burgers
    - Vegetable items are usually lower in fat than the meat dishes but can still be high in total calories
    - Most appetizers are deep fried and some can hold more oil resulting in excessive calories. Switch to soups instead
    - Stir-fry dishes are the best choice for lower calories

    Essential Fast Food facts
    - Laden with additives and unhealthy ingredients
    A quick look at any food label will show you a long list of ingredients. We need to improve our ability to read and interpret food labels, which will help us make informed choices. More often than not, these foods are loaded with fats, sugar, salt and artificial additives. Many of these food additives, can have serious effects on long-term health. The fact that many children have diets high in processed foods underlies in the massive increase in childhood obesity
    - Essential nutrients are missing
    It's not just what's in fast food, which is alarming. What fast foods leave out, has just as bad an impact on health. Fast foods usually do not contain the following:
    - Fiber, which is essential to keep the gut working properly. Processing methods remove most of the fiber originally present in the food. Long term low fiber intake can lead to serious health problems
    - Vitamins and minerals in fast foods are lost due to processing and refining, which is often carried out at high temperatures. Some processed foods have added vitamins and minerals - often because those that were there to start with have been lost in processing. Others have very little or even non-existent nutritional value
    - Bad for health
    The dire effects of diets which rely too much on fast and processed foods are listed below:
    - Lethal diseases - cancer, heart diseases, diabetes - are linked with poor diet and overweight
    - Obesity in children and adults has reached a record high and continues to increase
    - Lack of certain essential nutrients (like iron) can cause behavioural problems in children and can affect their ability to learn
    - Long term fast/processed food (ab)use can lead to numerous other problems in children - caries prone teeth, dry skin, bad breath, constipation, digestive problems, headaches, poor concentration, depression, tiredness, anaemia - the list goes on and on
    - Lacking flavour and texture
    Junk foods are bland because processing wipes out subtle differences in flavour, appetizing fragrances and aromas. You have a well-flavoured meal in front of you, little knowing that this is due to added artificial flavours, colors and aromas. Yet the flavours never taste like food freshly prepared, from fresh and simple ingredients
    - Not as fresh as they seem
    Some processed foods pretend to be fresh - salads, which are doused in chlorinated water before packing. It's kept looking good, maybe for days and days on end, by added preservatives

    What can you do?
    Healthy eating and fast food can't exist side by side. As you switch to a healthy diet, one by one the fast foods must go:
    - Learn to understand food labels. If you're looking for healthy food, labels hold the key. Read them and start seeking for healthier alternatives
    - If you can't always avoid eating junk food, learn to choose the more healthy fast foods
    - As you gradually eradicate unhealthy foods from your diet, replace them with simple, fresh foods and encourage your friends to do the same
    - Help your family to start shopping differently, buying fresh foods more frequently, relying less on foods which have a long shelf life because they're full of artificial preservatives and buying for just few meals, at a time. Over a few months, you'll find that it's not that time-consuming and you and your family is actually enjoying planning and eating healthier meals
    - In time, processed foods that used to seem appetizing will lose their appeal, as your palate becomes attuned to fresher, purer flavours
    -Be realistic. Sometimes with friends you'll still have a burger or a ready-meal. Relax. Healthy eating is all about balance. As long as most of the time you're eating good, nutritious food, that's fine
    Once you know the fast food facts, you'll never the feel the same about the foods in junk food joints again. Start gradually changing the way you eat and you'll enjoy food more and feel better, as well as give yourself, your family and friends massive health benefits which are long-term. You're not alone in this. Half the world is trying to do the same. But remember you can make it happen, only if you try. Your time starts NOW

    4 Types of irregular periods and their causes

    Menstruation is a cyclical process when at a certain time of the month, the lining of the uterus is shed and vaginal bleeding occurs. Sometimes there can be abnormalities in this cycle. Irregular periods in women are abnormal variations in the length, volume, duration and quality of menstrual cycle. Irregular periods aren't uncommon among menstruating women.

    Abnormalities in periods can be of the following nature:

    - Varying time between successive periods
    - Loss of more or less blood than usual
    - Varying length of your periods

    Based on these categorizations, the different types of periods are:

    1. Irregular menstrual bleeding - Irregular menstrual bleeding is characterized by bleeding that takes place for more than 20 days in a solitary cycle, which can lengthen over a period of a year.

    2. Absent menstrual bleeding - In this type of menstrual bleeding, a woman does not get her period at all within a span of 90 days.

    3. Heavy menstrual bleeding - This involves excessive blood loss that may intervene with a woman's physical, psychological and social quality of life.

    4. Heavy and prolonged menstrual bleeding - This is less common than heavy menstrual bleeding and is different from in terms of duration. A different type of therapy is required to treat the condition as it is more severe in nature.

    5. Light menstrual bleeding - Light menstrual bleeding is characterized by less blood loss than usual.

    Irregular periods can be caused due to several reasons. Some of them are:

    - Switching from one birth control pill to another or taking certain medication
    - Excessive exercising
    - Breastfeeding or pregnancy
    - Stress
    - Hyperthyroidism
    - Polycystic ovary disease (PCOS)
    - Uterine fibroids
    - Getting an IUD (intrauterine device)
    - Gradual thickening of uterine lining or the development of polyps on the uterine lining
    - Scarring of the lining of the uterus can also be a possible cause

    Changes in the body's level of hormones can also disrupt a woman's periods. Estrogen and progesterone are the chief hormones that play a crucial part in the menstrual cycle and influence the flow as well, thereby giving rise to abnormalities if their balance is disturbed.

    When it comes to treating irregular periods, modifying your lifestyle, treating the underlying issue behind an irregular cycle, changing your birth control pills (if that is the cause), opting for hormone therapy or even surgery are viable treatment options.
