Hello, a pregnant woman should take utmost caution of what she eats. A nutritious diet rich in proteins, iron, calcium and omega 3 fatty acids is recommended. Overall besides normal food make sure she takes a big glass of milk daily, 2-3 eggs in a week, chicken/ fish twice a week, take 2 helping of fruits and salads daily. Taking 5-6 almonds alone a piece or two of walnuts daily should overall take care of your nutritional requirements. Hope this helps you.

When I sex my sperm out from my wife vaginal whats reasons my sex time very week please give me suggestion.
Hello- More 85% of semen/sperm spills out from vagina after sex normally, so nothing to worry about that. However your ejaculation time must be at least 15 minutes or more to stimulate your partner properly during sex. If you are facing difficulties in achieving such a level, its better to consult a sexologist. Medications with slightest of modification in your daily life can make your sex life pleasurable and you can enjoy your fatherhood.

DIET FOR MENSES
Normal menstrual cycles range from every 21 to 35 days, according to the Cleveland Clinic, and most women's periods last four to seven days. Unusually short, lengthy, light, heavy, frequent, infrequent or painful periods can derive from stress, dieting, birth control pills and medical conditions, such as fibroids, polycystic ovary syndrome, endometriosis and, less frequently, cancer. Overexercise and low body weight can cause your cycle to stop altogether. In addition to seeking any necessary medical treatment, emphasize certain foods within a healthy diet to help regulate your cycle.

Whole Grains
Whole grains provide valuable amounts of fiber, protein and B vitamins -- nutrients that improve hormonal balance and reduce symptoms of heavy menstruation, according to Dr. Christiane Northrup, a physician and women's health expert. High-glycemic carbohydrate sources, such as white bread and sweets, on the other hand, can worsen your symptoms. They can also impede blood sugar control, interfering with positive energy levels and moods. Limit these foods and emphasize hearty whole grains, such as quinoa, barley, brown rice, oats and popcorn, instead.

Oily fish, such as salmon, mackerel, lake trout and herring, provide rich amounts of protein and healthy fats, which are also important for hormonal balance and normalized menstruation, says Northrup. As top sources of omega-3 fats, oily fish reduce inflammation, which plays a role in pain and bloating, and may help minimize menstrual cramps. For best results, replace protein sources rich in saturated fat, such as red meat, dark-meat poultry and cheeses, with baked, grilled or steamed fish. Saturated fats increase inflammation


Flaxseeds for Fiber
(also u can take flax oil of vestige)
Flaxseeds are top plant sources of omega-3 fats and valuable sources of fiber. They also contain lignans -- natural compounds that can help balance hormones, including estrogen, according to a "Nutrition & Food Sciences" report published in 2012. Add ground flaxseed to other healthy foods, such as smoothies or whole-grain muffins, or have flaxseed flakes for a breakfast rich in omega-3s, fiber and protein. Fortified cereals also supply iron, which is important to replenish if you've experienced heavy menstrual bleeding. Your body loses iron through blood, which can lead to anemia.

Fruits and Vegetables
Getting plenty of the antioxidants, vitamin C and beta-carotene is also important for improved hormonal balance and menstrual health, says Northrup. Fruits and vegetables provide significant amounts of both nutrients, along with fiber. Avoid fruit juices and fruits with added sweeteners, which have a high glycemic index. Instead, opt for fresh or frozen, unsweetened fruits and vegetables. For beta-carotene, eat sweet potatoes, carrots, cantaloupe, mango and sweet peppers. Top vitamin C sources include red bell peppers, citrus fruits, broccoli, strawberries and brussels sprouts.


THIS TIP ALONG WITH PROPER HOMEOPATHIC REMEDIES CAN HELP BETTER FOR MENSTRUAL COMPLAINTS.

All About Pansexuality

All About Pansexuality

Gone are the days when a man is only attracted towards a woman and vice-a-versa. In today's fast changing scenario one can experience physical attraction towards anyone. With the ever widening spectrum of definitions attached to gender and sexuality, we acquaint ourselves with an enormous range of gender notions and understandings pertaining to sexuality. Gone are the days of the water-tight polarities of male and female bodies and their mutual attractions. The society is by and large opening up to the possibility of sexual attractions besides and beyond the normative bounds of heterosexuality or so we hope. 

One of the most significant struggles of contemporary times is the quest for acceptance and acknowledgement of queer identities and breaking all the discriminatory stigmas attached to them. While one cannot really be inveigled into advocating one form of sexuality over the other, the main argument of the movement is to allow anyone and everyone to freely express and exercise their sexual affinities and identities beyond the restrictions of sex, gender, class, caste, race or any such constructed categories. 

Amidst the struggle for championing the cause of free love, there are certain nuances about one's sexuality that have emerged as discrete identities within the larger understanding of the LGBTQ movement. 
Among the others, Pansexuality is relatively a more incipient concept. 

Unlike bisexuality, which conforms to the conventional gender definitions, i.e male and female and professes attraction to both or either, pansexuality is a more inclusive expression of sexuality wherein one feels attracted to anyone, irrespective of one's sex or gender identity. Pansexuality vouches for strong sexual feelings for those who may not identify with a specific gender and consequently, includes transgender and transsexuals within its purview. 

A pansexual is never inhibited or restricted by a person's gender or sex. Initially coined by Sigmund Freud to describe the basis of human interactions in purely sociological terms, the term was later adopted by the LGBTQ activities to describe the group of people whose sexual predispositions were not delineated by gender constructs. For a pansexual, there is a lurking and consistent possibility of getting attracted to anybody at any given situation. Numerous celebrities like Laci Green and Miley Cyrus are explicitly pansexual. 

However, the pansexual community is constantly plagued by myriad indignities and disgraces. Many have labelled them debauch and promiscuous while others try to sympathize with them perceiving them as led awry and confused. In fact one of the major misconception with regard to pansexuality is that it is synonymous to bisexuality. Yet others deride this claim by stating that it is merely a modern fad with no genuine basis. 

Like it or not, pansexuality is a reality, relevant to a lot of our lives. In fact, it secularized love to an unprecedented extent and really lets nothing come in the way. In a world strewn with hostility, hatred and violence, if a sizeable number wishes to advocate indiscriminate and unhindered love, it surely bodes happiness for all.

Cosmetic Gynaecology - 7 Techniques For You

Cosmetic Gynaecology - 7 Techniques For You

A woman is an extraordinary and beautiful creation of nature, and it is natural that she would want to see herself as perfect and complete. And, staying sexually attractive is one of the major factors that motivate a woman to seek the benefits of Cosmetic Gynaecology. Cosmetic Gynaecology or Intimate Aesthetic Surgery covers procedures which alter the appearance of female external genitalia and make it seem more natural and youthful. These methods, aid in correcting congenital defects, enhances the self*confidence of a woman, and positively affects the intimacy she shares with her partner.

With age and life events like childbirth, the vagina and labia often change in appearance and structure, which not only hampers the feeling of self-worth in a woman, but also prevents her from enjoying sexual activities completely and Cosmetic Gynaecology emerges as the savior in such situations.
Here are some procedures, which are here to help the fairer sex rediscover the beauty of their body:

* Vaginal Rejuvenation: With the help of laser technique, this process helps in tightening the internal diameter of the vagina, when it gets stretched during birth or owing to genetic factors.

* Labiaplasty: Through this method, the contours of the labia majora or labia minora are changed. It may cover reconstruction, augmentation or reduction.

* Hymenoplasty: It is done to create a pseudo hymenal membrane from hymenal tissue, which already exists or non*hymenal soft tissue. The intention is to cause bleeding when the membrane tears during intercourse.

* Clitoroplasty: This procedure deals with the surgical transformation of the clitoris, which caters to conditions involving increased tissue volume. It can also aid in creating clitoris in transgender women.

* Clitoral Hood Reduction: The method is focused on the loose skin around the clitoris, and can be conducted during labiaplasty or as a separate procedure.

* Monsplasty: The contours of the Mons pubis can be changed through this process. It involves liposuction for the reduction of excess fat, subcutaneous fat, as well as skin. Often, techniques like laser and ultrasound are used during monsplasty.

* Perineoplasty: Repairing and restoration of the loose, ageing or injured perineum is taken care of through this method. Perineum is the area between the vagina opening and the rectum. And this procedure is usually helpful for women who don't heal efficiently after a vaginal delivery or experience scars.

So if you are worried about the structure or appearance of your intimate area, don't fret. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.

Hello doctor I ma 17 weeks pregnant can I take beetroot juice during this time is it safe.
Yes definitely. Beetroot is rich in folic acid that is essential during pregnancy for the growth of baby and prevention of defects in him/her. Beetroot rich in folic acid helps in the growth of spinal cord in baby. It also helps in protecting the baby from taking up the spinal cord defect.

Hello- your symptoms suggest that your both the ovaries are surrounded by cyst (pcod) and due to this you might be facing certain problems like, irregular menses, unwanted hair growth, weight gain, and yes the cyst delay ovulation and hence it might affect your motherhood too after marriage. Don't go for allopathic treatment like metformin etc. As it will further increase your weight and will create a hormonal imbalance in your body. These cysts occur due to improper diet and schedule done specially during menstrual bleeding period. Try this safe and effective ayurvedic treatment- a) kuberaksha vati 1 tab twice. B) tab hyponidd 1 tab thrice c) fal sarpi 1 tsp twice before meals. D) go for basti panchakarma by your nearby ayurvedic doctor.

Tambaku Side Effects in hindi - तम्बाकू के दुष्प्रभाव

Tambaku Side Effects in hindi -  तम्बाकू के दुष्प्रभाव

नशा एक ऐसी बीमारी है जो हमें और हमारे अपनों को जीवन भर रुलाने की वजह बन सकती है। समाज का हर तबक़ा, हर उम्र के लोग नशे की चपेट में आते जा रहे हैं। आज बच्चे, बूढ़े, महिलाएं, पुरुष सभी नशे की लत घिरे हुए हैं और यह स्थिति दिन ब दिन भयावह रूप लेती जा रही है।
यूनिवर्सिटी ऑफ सिडनी के रिसर्चर्स का कहना है कि तम्बाकू का सेवन धूम्रपान के रूप में करने से आपके गले की नली जहा से आप सांस लेते है उसमें ऐसा नुकसान पहुँचा सकता है कि धूम्रपान छोड़ने के बाद भी वह नुकसान की भरपाई नही की जा सकती, इसलिए स्मोकर्स अगर खुद को यह दिलासा देते हैं कि वह आज तो सिगरेट पी रहे है पर कल छोड़ देंगे, तो वह खुद को ही नुक्सान पहुंचा रहे होते हैं। एक आंकड़े के अनुसार, साल 2020 तक मौत के तीन मुख्य कारणों में से एक स्मोकिंग द्वारा होने वाले रोग बन जाएंगे।

कई कारणों से लोग तम्बाकू का सेवन करना शुरू करते है। कभी स्ट्रेस कम करने के लिए तो कभी गुस्से में, कभी टाइम पास करने और अक्सर शौक समझकर तम्बाकू का सेवन करते हैं, पर अंदाजा नहीं लगा सकते कि आप जिस तरह से तम्बाकू को सहजता से खा रहे हैं उसका उतना ही दयनीय परिणाम भी होता है। खैनी, सिगरेट, बीड़ी, गुटखा वगैरा तम्बाकू को जिस भी रूप में लिया जाए इसके नुकसान निश्चित हैं। तम्बाकू का नशा कोई एक समस्या ना होकर कई समस्याओं की जड़ है और यह शारीरिक और मानसिक रूप से नुकसान तो करता ही है साथ ही मौत को जल्दी बुला देता है।
उन सभी लोग का जो तम्बाकू का सेवन करते है यह जानना जरूरी है कि तम्बाकू से बनने वाले अलग अलग नशेड़ी चिजों का कितना घातक असर आपके शरीर पर अलग-अलग तरह से पड़ता है। तो चलिए आज हम आपको बताएंगे तम्बाकू से होने वाले नुकसान के बारे में।

1. सिगरेट
हो सकता है सिगरेट का एक कश लगाकर आप दिन भर कामकाज के तनाव को भले ही कुछ पल भूल जाएं पर धूम्रपान की आपकी आदत शरीर के कई हिस्सों के लिए खतरे की घंटी है। इसमें मौजूद बेनजीन, टार, फोर्मलडीहाइड, आर्सेनिक, निकोटिन जैसे तत्व शरीर के लिए कई रोगों का आमंत्रण हो सकते हैं।
कई शोधों में यह प्रमाणित हो चुका है कि धूम्रपान से फेफड़ों का कैंसर, गले का कैंसर, मुंह, किडनी, ब्लैडर, पैंक्रियाज और पेट में कैंसर का रिस्क अधिक होता है। इसके अलावा अधिक धूम्रपान करने वालों को दिल के रोगों और स्ट्रोक का खतरा अधिक होता है। कार्बन और निकोटिन का मिश्रण शरीर में हार्ट रेट और ब्लड प्रेशर बढ़ाता है। सिगरेट में पाया जाने वाला टार फेफड़ों के कैंसर की बड़ी वजह है। धुएं से निकलने वाली कार्बन मोनोऑक्साइड गैस मांसपेशियों, दिमाग और कोशिकाओं में पहुंचने वाली ऑक्सीजन को रोकती है जिससे हृदय, फेफड़ों और मस्तिष्क के काम करने में दिक्कत हो सकती है। गर्भावस्था में धूम्रपान या पैसिव स्मोकिंग (धूम्रपान करने वालों की संगत) गर्भपात, समय से पहले डिलिवरी, बच्चे का कम वजन आदि का कारण हो सकता है।

2. तम्बाकू, खैनी, गुटखा
जर्दा, सुर्ती और पान मसाले के नाम पर तंबाकू खाना अगर आपकी आदत का हिस्सा हो चुका है तो आपकी इस आदत को बदलने की कुछ बेहद जरूरी वजहें हो सकती हैं। तंबाकू में 28 किस्म के कार्सिनोजेनिक तत्व होते हैं जिनसे कैंसर हो सकता है। 
तंबाकू से ल्यूकोप्लाकिया का रिस्क अधिक रहता है जिसमें दांत और मसूड़े तेजी से सड़ते हैं। मुंह के कैंसर का यह बहुत बड़ा कारण है। गले का कैंसर का रिस्क अधिक रहता है। तंबाकू में मौजूद निकोटिन हार्ट रेट और ब्लड प्रेशर बढ़ा देता है जिससे दिल के रोगों की आशंका अधिक रहती है। भोजन करने की इच्छा खत्म कर देता है।

3. हुक्का
आज हुक्का न सिर्फ गांवों तक सीमित है बल्कि तमाम पब, होटलों और रेस्तरां में हुक्के (तंबाकू युक्त हुक्के) का चलन बढ़ा है। अगर आप इसे सिगरेट के विकल्प के रूप में देखते हैं तो सेहत पर इसका प्रभाव जानना जरूरी है।
हुक्का में सिगरेट की तरह ही टार, कार्बन मोनोऑक्साइड, हेवी मेटल्स और कार्सिनोजेनिक तत्व हैं जो कैंसर का रिस्क बढ़ाते हैं। इससे मुंह का कैंसर, दिल के रोग और फेफड़ों के कैंसर की आशंका सबसे अधिक होती है। सिगरेट की तरह ही हुक्के का निकोटिन भी हार्ट रेट और ब्लड प्रेशर को बढ़ाता है। गर्भावस्था के दौरान हुक्का पीने या हुक्का पीने वालों के दौरान मौजूद रहने से गर्भवती महिलाओं के गर्भ को नुकसान हो सकता है। हुक्का के पाइप से कई प्रकार के संक्रमणों का रिस्क अधिक रहता है। 

4. सिगार
हालांकि सिगार का प्रचलन हमारे यहां अपेक्षाकृत कम है पर कुछ लोग सिगार को सिगरेट की अपेक्षा बेहतर विकल्प मानते हैं। अगर आप भी ऐसा सोचते हैं तो जान लें कि तंबाकू का सेवन हर रूप में सेहत के लिए नुकसानदायक ही है। 
सिगार में मौजूद निकोटिन भले ही फेफड़ों में कम जाए लेकिन यह मुंह को सीधा प्रभावित करता है जिससे मुंह और गले के कैंसर का रिस्क बढ़ जाता है। इसमें बहुत अधिक मात्रा में कार्सिनोजेनिक तत्व होते हैं। शोधों की मानें तो सिगार में 60 से भी अधिक कार्सिनोजेनिक तत्व पाए जाते हैं। दिल के रोगों का खतरा इससे अधिक होता है। इसके सेवन से धमनियों के ब्लॉकेज और दिल के दौरे का रिस्क बढ़ जाता है। कम समय में ही दांत गिरने लगते हैं।

जैसा कि आपने जाना कि तंबाकू का सेवन किसी भी हाल में खतरनाक है इसलिए अगर चाह हो जिंदगी और अपनों से तो तम्बाकू से किनारा कर लें। वरना तम्बाकू आपकी जिंदगी को किनारे लगा देगा।

Donor Eggs or Donor Embryos

DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology), MBBS
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Donor Eggs or Donor Embryos

Donor eggs or Donor Embryos

If you’re over 40 or can no longer produce healthy eggs, donor eggs can help you carry and deliver a baby. This is also a good option if you’re at risk for passing a genetic disease such as Tay-Sachs disease or sickle cell anaemia to your child.

Treatment: What to expect?

If you decide on an anonymous egg donor, you can find her through your fertility clinic. You’ll usually be able to choose based on her physical characteristics, ethnic background, educational record, and occupation. Most donors are between 21 and 29 years old and have undergone psychological, medical, and genetic screening. Ask how your clinic screens candidates — some do less extensive tests and background checks than others. If you choose to use donor embryos, you can either pick unrelated egg and sperm donors or use a frozen embryo donated by a couple that had extras.

Once you pick a donor, both you and she will take birth control pills to get your reproductive cycles in sync — she needs to ovulate when your uterine lining can support an embryo. She’ll also take a fertility drug to help her develop several mature eggs for fertilization, while you will receive estrogen and progesterone to prepare your uterus for pregnancy. Once her eggs are mature, your doctor will give her an anesthetic and remove her eggs from her ovaries by inserting a needle through her vaginal wall using an ultrasound for guidance.

From here on out, the procedure is just like that of in vitro fertilization (IVF). Your partner’s sperm or a donor’s sperm will be combined with your donor’s eggs in a dish in a laboratory. Two to five days later, each of the fertilized eggs will be a ball of cells called an embryo. Your doctor will insert two to four embryos into your uterus through your cervix using a thin catheter. Although it’s not a common practice, many experts say couples should consider transfer of a single embryo to avoid the risk of twins or triplets. Extra embryos, if there are any, may be frozen in case this cycle doesn’t succeed. If the treatment does succeed, an embryo will implant in your uterine wall and continue to grow into a baby. In about 40 percent of ART pregnancies using donor eggs, more than one embryo implants itself and women give birth to multiples
