I had gone through pap smear test. Though the report came negative for intraepithelial lesion or malignancy. But doctor gave a clinical note of cervical erosion present on both lips, bleed in touch. I showed the report to my family gynaecologist. She advised to go for HPV DNA and coloscopy. I am very worried. Why these tests have been recommended to me. Is it very serious.

Since your doctor has detected ulcers on mouth of uterus, there can be a posibilty of human papilloma virus (hpv dna) infection / any other finding. Pap test report can be vague also which can miss lots. Go for colposcopy as suggested. May be doctor will do the procedure of cauterisation in the same sitting- burning of the ulcers. Do get an ultrasound abdomen test & blood test for hiv.

Exercises for a Strong core

MSc in Orhopedic Physiotherapy (UK), BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist, Bangalore
Exercises for a Strong core
Few exercises for a strong core:
1: the off-balance workout
Looking for a toned stomach? these are two good reasons to turn your workout into a balancing act. A controlled wobble activates deep core muscles to help tighten the midsection and prepare athletes for that quick turn or lunge.
2: engage your abs
Before each move in our workout, first engage your abdominal by tightening them -- without holding your breath -- as if preparing to take a punch. You'll activate the core muscles surrounding your spine and tone your entire abdominal area. Engaged abs also help prevent injury when lifting. If you have a medical condition, be sure to check with your doctor before this or any new fitness program.
3: one-legged balance
Start with this beginning move, keeping a stable chair or a wall within arms' reach. With feet together, pick up one foot -- knee facing forward or to the side. Hold the position with eyes open, then closed. Switch feet and repeat for four reps on each foot. If any move feels wrong or unsafe to you, stop and check with a trainer. Depending on your health and physical condition, some exercises may not be recommended.
4: leg swings
Stand on your right leg and raise the left leg 3-6 inches off the floor. With arms at your sides, swing your left leg forward and backward, touching the floor for balance, while keeping your torso erect. Now, repeat the moves, but don't allow your foot to touch the ground. And finally, swing your left foot to the left side, holding your right arm out. Switch legs and repeat.
5: one-legged clock with arms
Balance on one leg, torso straight, head up, and hands on the hips. Visualize a clock and point your arm straight overhead to 12, then to the side (3), and then circle low and around to 9 o'clock without losing your balance. Increase the challenge by having a partner call out the different times to you. Switch to the opposite arm and leg and repeat.
6: one-legged clock with legs
Balance on one leg, torso straight, head up, and hands on your hips. Straighten the other leg to the front, and imagine yourself as the center of a clock. Point that foot to 12, 9, and then cross over to 3 o'clock while holding your balance. Increase the challenge by having a partner shout out the different times to you. Switch to the opposite leg and repeat.
7: one-legged squat
Stand with your feet hip-width apart. Point your left foot out front, just barely touching the floor for balance and push your hips back and down into this challenging one-legged squat position. Your right knee is bent, chest upright, eyes forward, and your arms out front. Slowly push up to return to starting position. Switch feet.

Can I be pregnant if I was in physical relationship 7 months back? After that I was not intimated.

Can I be pregnant if I was in physical relationship 7 months back? After that I was not intimated.
No you can not be pregnant after 7 months of sexual physical relationship because sperms survive for few days (and not many months) in vagina. So just relax and next time be careful and treat your body with respect i. E. Enjoy sexual relationship but with proper understanding in basics of sexuality and do's don'ts from an expert sexologist. So you will be saved of this unnecessary tension/worries which you are having now.

How to Build a Healthy Salad

PG Dip Diet, B.Sc. - Dietitics / Nutrition

How to Build a Healthy Salad

Not all salads are healthy. Making a salad loaded with potatoes and cream is definitely not going to make you healthier or help you lose weight. The healthiest salads are the ones you make at home. Salads in restaurants are often as calorie heavy as anything else on the menu. If you want to make a healthy salad, here's what you need to do.

  • Put in plenty of greens: Greens like romaine lettuce, iceberg lettuce, spring green and baby spinach are filling, full of fiber and very low in calories. This also makes your salad very rich in nutrients. Slice these leaves in ribbons or roughly tear them into small pieces to form the foundation of your salad.
  • Use lots of fresh vegetables: A salad is the ideal way to enjoy vegetables. While vegetables like cucumber, onion, carrots, beets and tomatoes can be eaten raw, others like mushrooms, corn and broccoli will need to be steamed or lightly sautéed before being added to a salad. Avoid frying any vegetables in lots of oil. This negates the concept of a salad and makes it rich in calories instead of being rich in nutrients.
  • Add some protein: Whether you're vegetarian or non vegetarian, do not forget to add a portion of protein to your salad. Beans, chickpeas, tofu and cottage cheese are ideal options for vegetarians while non vegetarians can choose between eggs, chicken, fish, proscuitto etc. Along with being necessary for nutrition, this also makes your salad filling and keeps you feeling full for longer.
  • Limit the extras: Everything is good in small quantities. If you want to add flavouring agents like cheese, nuts, avocado, croutons etc to your salad limit it to one flavouring agent or extra. This gives your salad a different taste while not making it too fattening.
  • Dress carefully: Dressing is where a salad can go from healthy to unhealthy. A light vinaigrette salad dressing is the best way to finish your salad. If you like your salads creamy, use fresh or hung yogurt instead of mayonnaise. When ordering a salad at a restaurant, ask for your dressing on the side so that you can limit the amount used. Adding a splash of vinegar is an easy way to make a heavy dressing lighter without losing too much flavor.
  • Add some crunch: Lastly, sprinkle toasted seeds or air popped popcorn over your salad to add an element of crunchiness to your meal. Chia, hemp and sunflower seeds add to the overall flavor of the salad and are also packed with vitamins and minerals.

If done in a proper way in consultation with a gynaec it's safe. But frequent abortions are definitely not advisable.

1. Have sex & masturbate less often - the more times you ejaculate, the less dense your semen will be. Maintain a gap of 3 days between two consecutive ejaculations. 2. Refrain from habits like smoking, alcohol consumption etc. - alcohol affects your liver function, which, in turn, causes a dramatic rise in estrogen levels. Even two drinks a day will have long-term effects on sperm production 3. Exercise regularly. Exercising your pc muscle can help you shoot further than ever before. 4. Eat nutritious food - diet that's low in fat, and high in protein, vegetables, and whole grains is good for your health and for your sperm. Avoid bitter, astringent and spicy foods. Reduce caffeine intake 5. Avoid heating of testicles - wear loose, cotton boxer shorts, avoid hot baths and saunas 6. Lose any excess weight, which tends to cause testosterone/oestrogen imbalances. 7. Reduce stress levels by learning relaxation techniques - keep your mind and body healthy by regular practice of yoga and meditation. 8. Massage body with herbal oil, which improves blood circulation. 9. Try supplements - certain natural supplements promise to increase sperm production. Checkout some natural and herbal, no side effects supplements at 10. Make love in the early morning or afternoon. Sperm levels are often highest in the mornings.

Hi, there are no such wonder drugs. If she is not having enough desire for sexual interaction, or if she is not responding, the most likely reasons are that she has her own fears about the consequences; or her conscience and values may be raising a mental block. I think they should be respected as such in her interest.

Dear Doctor, My girlfriend is 25 years old. We have been dating for the past 3 years now and are committed. She explained to me that from the time she first got her periods, they have been rather irregular. She would also develop certain skin conditions during her periods such as acne on her face or increase in oiliness as well as dryness of her lips. Her gynac after performing certain tests said that she releases several eggs at a time, rather than the usual one when she ovulates. Under his prescription she has been taking a course of Aristelle (Ethinyl Estradiol, Dienogest) ever since As I understand, this drug is a hormonal contraceptive. She has continued this course for the past several years now and has been doing well in terms of skin symptoms and regularity of her period. My question to you is, for how long do you think it would be safe to continue this course without causing any disturbance to her body. We are clear that we want to have sex only after marriage. Hence I would like to know if there would be anything to keep in mind when we do decide that we would like to conceive. I look forward to your kind help. With Gratitude

Hi. As of now if she is better she may stop that pill for a few months and observe. If you are not going to be sexually active as of now then no worries. Once you get married she should easily conceive. Supposing there are problems in conceiving that can be tacled at that time. Per say these pills are quite harmless and you need not worry.

DO?s: Diet: - Wheat products (wheat bread, wheat pasta) - Barley - Natural diuretic fruits - Raw fruits (especially apple, pear etc.) and vegetables - Oats, Corn, Butter, eggs, almonds, peanuts, pumpkin, beans, cabbage, cauliflower, cucumber, eggplant, lettuce, mushroom, onions, peppers, spinach, vegetable oil, soya beans, apricots, blueberries, cantaloupe, cherries, figs, grapes, honeydew, lemon, tomato juice, kiwi fruit, pineapple, plum, raspberries, strawberries, watermelon, mango, cheese, radishes, olive oil, nuts, salmon fish, flaxseeds - Protein rich foods - High fiber rich food and Vit B rich food - Opt for lean meat. Avoid chicken though, as they may be injected with male hormone to increase the muscle bulk, which would trigger PCOD - Move to Soy products instead of milk, as milk has the tendency to increase the testosterone levels - Include 1-2 litres of water in your diet, which avoids water retention - Divide meals into small healthy 5-6 meals per day, instead of 3 heavy meals and never miss breakfast Exercise: - Sit ?ups, push ?ups - Skipping helps you to lessen binge eating, the release of serotonin and dopamine will keep your stress levels low. - Stress free methods such as Yoga, meditation, listening to music etc. DON?T?S: - All whites (Maida, white bread, pasta, etc.) - Junk or fast foods, cakes, cookies, sweets, chocolates, soft drinks and soda, desserts etc. - Avoid red meat, whole milk dairy, fried food, margarines - Reduce Sodium intake, by avoiding sauces, chips, salted nuts, canned soups - Quit smoking ?as it stimulates Androgen - Avoid alcohol Scope of Homoeopathy in PCOD: Homeopathic approach towards management of PCOD is constitutional, taking into account the presenting complaints along with physical, mental and genetic make-up that individualizes a person. It involves prescribing ?Constitutional Medicine?, which is also capable for working on the Ovaries and the entire Endocrine system. The treatment logic varies depending on the presence of any genetic predisposition, physical makeup (obesity), peculiarities of your menstrual, etc. In Homoeopathy, medicines are given to induce ovulation in a natural way, which improves and regularizes your menstrual cycle and also helps in the prevention or minimization of cyst formation.
