Get your pregnancy test done. If positive then either go for mtp or take medicine for medical abortion.

Hello- take 1 tsp black sesame seeds ten days before menses in the morning. Massage your abdomen clock wise daily with castor oil at night. Avoid carbohydrate rich diet if having constipation. Take a mild herbal laxative (trifla/isabgol) at bed time daily.

First I would advice you to get a hormonal assay done- FSH ,LH, TSH, Prolactin as well a pelvic USG. Treatment will depend on the results.

If your pco is cured and you are getting your menses regularly on time then you can slowly taper off the medicines.

11 Proven Health Benefits of Quinoa

M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition

Quinoa is considered to be one of the world's healthiest foods. It is gluten free and high in protein. It is among the few plants which contain all 9 essential amino acids. Quinoa is also rich in fiber, iron, potassium, phosphorus, Vitamin E, vitamin B and other beneficial antioxidants.

Here are 11 health benefits of quinoa:

  1. Quinoa comes in red, white and black colors. It is an edible seed and becoming very trendy among the people who are health conscious. It is loaded with the richness of many important nutrients.
  2. There are many trace nutrients present which are very healthy for the body. These include flavonoids which are basically the plant antioxidants which have beneficial effects on the health. Quercetin and Kaempferol are flavonoids and are found in large amounts in quinoa. Both these molecules have anti viral, anti inflammatory, anti cancer and anti depressants effects.
  3. Very high in fiber, much higher than most grains: It is high in fiber, but boiled quinoa has less fiber in it as it is absorbed by the water. It has almost 17-27 grams of fiber per cup.
  4. Gluten-free and perfect for people with gluten intolerance: A gluten free diet is considered to be healthy as long as the starches are not refined as this causes a problem. If gluten foods with refined sugars are consumed they are equal to consuming junk food. Quinoa is a natural gluten free product and is used in gluten free recipes. This increases the nutrient value and the antioxidants of the gluten diet.
  5. Amino acids make up the protein. Some of these amino acids are known as essential as we need to get them through diet. Many plant foods are deficient in some essential amino acids like lysine. But quinoa is an exception, as it contains all the nine amino acids.
  6. The glycemic index is usually done to measure the blood sugar levels. On eating foods high in glycemic index, it can stimulate the hunger and leads to obesity. The glycemic index of quinoa is 53 which is low.
  7. Certain nutrients like magnesium, potassium, zinc and (for women) irons go missing from the diet. Quinoa is very high in all these minerals, especially magnesium.
  8. Quinoa can lower blood sugar and triglyceride levels thus improving metabolic health.
  9. Quinoa appears to be very high in antioxidants, which are increased even further after the seeds are sprouted.
  10. Helps in losing weight as quinoa is high in fiber, protein and has a low glycemic index.
  11. Quinoa is very easy to include in diet.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dietitian-nutritionist and ask a free question.

First of all you need to confirm whether your wife is pregnant or not. Do a simple urine pregnancy test. If its positive, then there is more than 95% chance that she may be pregnant. In that case visit a gynecologist to decide the right medicine to terminate the unwanted pregnancy. If the pregnancy test is negative, you need not worry. Just wait another week or so for periods to begin.

Menses can be missed either because of hormonal changes or even stress or even if you have put on some weight in recent times then also menses can be missed. All these problems are temporary and menses will come on its own. You can wait for another 15 days before you can take tablet deviry to get menses. In the meantime, keep repeating urine pregnancy test every week till you get your menses.

Yes it is risky. You may have sudden bleeding per vagina. You need to take rest as much as possible for 1 month because placenta normally migrates and it will migrate upwards by 1 month. Do an usg after 1 month.

Vaginismus - Things You Should Be Aware of

DNB (Psychiatry), DPM, MBBS
Sexologist
Ask Free Question

Vaginismus is a condition characterized by significant pain in the vagina generally during sexual intercourse. This pain occurs on penetration due to the contraction of the vaginal muscles.

Causes

The exact cause of Vaginismus is not exactly known to the doctors. But some researchers suggests that the pain might result from severe anxiety or illogical fears before sex.

Vaginismus can be primary or secondary depending on the concerned woman’s previous sexual experiences. Vaginismus can be linked to an earlier sexually painful experience, sexual trauma or psychological factors. In some cases, the pain tends to exist without any direct physical cause. The causes of the pain might vary from women to women and might occur in some cases with only one specific partner and not with others.

Sometimes the pain might stem from underlying infections or any other underlying complications.

The symptoms of Vaginismus are as follows:

  1. Severe pain during intercourse.

  2. Severe pain during insertion of tampons or during any medical check-ups.

The following treatments can be useful to treat Vaginismus:

  1. If the pain arises due to anxiety or fear, counselling sessions can help you to a remedy.

  2. If the pain arises whenever something penetrates the vaginal walls, progressive desensitization can be useful to treat the pain. The process aims to loosen the vaginal muscles so that you don’t experience any pain during sexual intercourse.

Kegel exercises (at least 20 of them) can help in the initial stage to relax the vaginal muscles. After you exercise for a few days, you should try inserting one finger inside your vagina while doing the exercises. Try doing it gently and if it still hurts, try doing it with a lubricating jelly. This continuous procedure will help in the contraction of the vaginal muscles which eventually relax.

This postpartum symptom is the heavy flow of blood and mucus, called lochia, that starts after delivery and continues for up to ten days. Light bleeding and spotting  can continue until four to six weeks after delivery. WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT: 1) For the first six weeks, use only pads, even if you need pads as thick as your baby's diapers. 2) Don't use tampons, which can introduce bacteria into your still-recovering uterus and genital tract.Choose clothes (particularly panties) that you don't care too much about. 3)Wearing your favorites immediately after delivery (even if you could fit into them) might not be such a good idea, since stains from spotting after pregnancy will inevitably happen. 4)Take it easy. Doing too much too soon can slow down the body's repair work and cause bleeding to start again, or to become heavy once it's started tapering off.

Lupus is autoimmune disease that is systematic. Means body gets angry with itself and it's protective response to fight illnesses gets low. Lupus does affect the joints as swollen and painful with mild fever. The course of disease is unpredictable with flare ups alternating with remissions, female sex hormones do increase the risk of flare up. Treatment is steroids along with immunosuppressants. Unpredictable with our system of medicine. You can try ayurveda or homeopathy. Good luck.
