Please take tablet trapic 650 or pause 500mg 3 times daily to reduce/ stop bleeding and take gynaec opinion, do sonography at around 6 weeks to see if fetal pole and cardiac activity has appeared in it. If it is there, then no need to worry. Bleeding can take place in case of miscarriage or even in healthy pregnancy. Pain may not be there. Preferably do internal sonography.

My wt is 69 kgs. is it possible to get pregnant with polycyst? what will be my next step? how could i recover from this?

There is no need of ultrasound. Just wait for 15 more days for spontaneous menses. If not then u need to take medicines to get menses. As u r suffering from pcos, it is likely to happen. U need to reduce ur weight with exercise (brisk walk for 5 km) and tab metformin 500 mg twice a day and dier modificatio. Once ur weight is reduced ur menses will come normally and u can start treatment for getting pregnant.

BODY TYPES & NUTRITION

PG diploma in clinical nutrition and hospital food service, B.Sc. - Dietitics / Nutrition

BODY TYPES & NUTRITION

Not everybody’s created equal. Before you start your nutrition regimen, its always a good idea to figure out your Body Type. This will help you tailor your diet better and set realistic and attainable goals.


There are 3 basic human body types:

Ectomorph: They are distinguished by a lack of much fat or muscle tissue.

Mesomorph : This is marked by a well developed musculature.

Endomorph :  This is characterized by a preponderance of body fat.

This is how the 3 body types look like:


Everybody is different since we all have different genetic and cultural traits. If everyone ate the same things and started exercising similarly, we would not look the same. This is because each person’s genetic inheritance influences their bone structure, body size, shape, and weight differently.

Thus, every body type should eat differently as per what appeals to them. This will not only maintain one’s healthy weight but also prevent any kind of eating disorders.


ECTOMORPHS:

Ectomorphs are individuals characterized by smaller bone structures and thinner limbs. They are characterized by:

Narrow hips and clavicals
Small joints (wrists and ankles)
A thin build
Stringy muscle bellies
Long limbs
Proper nutrition is very important, especially for those who consider themselves as “Ectomorphs”. It typically means that they have a faster metabolism , a tough time gaining body weight and higher overall caloric needs.

An ectomorph must typically start his or her diet plan by following the main principles for big gains in muscle size and strength.

As an Ectomorph, your ideal nutrition consists of about 55% of complex carbohydrates , 30% good quality proteins and 15% healthy fats.

Ectomorphs’ Ideal Body Type Diet

Avoid fatty foods, especially animal fat, cold cuts, mayonnaise, full-fat dairy, rich desserts, packaged foods, chips.

As an Ectomorph, the ideal nutrition consists of about 55% of complex carbohydrates (whole grains, rice, nuts all vegetables), approx. 30% quality proteins (whey, chicken, eggs), and up to 15% healthy fats cold-pressed virgin olive oil, flaxseed oil and good omega 3 sources like fish and sea food.


MESOMORPHS

Mesomorphs have a medium sized bone structure and athletic body, and if they’re active, they usually have a considerable amount of lean mass. They are characterized as follows:

Wide clavicles
A narrow waist
Thinner joints
Long and round muscle bellies
As a mesomorph, you are likely to put on muscle easily and also easy to gain and lose body weight. However,  mesomorphs yet need a targeted diet plan that helps them avoid fat gain and improve overall health.

BALANCE  is very important for a mesomorph, who falls between an ectomorph and an endomorph. A typical diet for mesomorphs should comprise of 45% complex carbohydrates, 35% good quality proteins and up to 20% healthy fats.

Mesomorphs’ Ideal Body Type Diet

Avoid fatty foods (full-fat dairy, fatty meats, cold cuts, mayonnaise, very rich desserts,) and minimize as much as possible refined carbohydrates (sugars and white flour products), as they cause rapid weight gain triggering a fat-storage metabolism.

As a Mesomorph, you should eat 3 smaller meals favoring foods high in quality protein (whey, chicken, eggs) and complex carbohydrates (leafy greens and non starchy vegetables).

Approx. 45% complex carbohydrates, 35% quality proteins and up to 20% healthy fats; use cold-pressed virgin olive oil and flaxseed oil in salads and get used to cooking with rice bran oil.

Include fish and seafood, as they are good omega 3 sources-omega 3 and weight loss connection is well-known.

In between meals get a healthy snack: fruits (except the sweet ones, like bananas, pineapple, grapes, mango, watermelon), raw almonds, plain yogurt or various smoothies with the right foods for you, as above.

ENDOMORPHS

Endomorphs have a larger bone structure with higher amounts of total body mass and fat mass. They tend to be naturally less active and thus have more tendency to store energy as fat. Thus, they have a particularly easy time gaining weight but hard to shed kilos. The main characteristics of a Endomorph is:

They look blocky
Wider and thicker joints
Wider hips than the clavicles
Shorter limbs
Out of all the three body types, Endomorphs have the greatest tendency towards roundness. Being an endomorph, obesity is very common in males in females.

“Apple shaped obesity” is more commonly seen in males where there is excess fat in and around the belly, while “Pear shaped obesity” is commonly seen in females with excess fat on the hips and buttocks.

Endomorphs’ Ideal Body Type Diet

As an Endomorph, your nutrition for losing weight should be roughly up to 30% complex carbohydrates (starchy vegetables, brown rice, whole grains), about 45% quality protein (chicken breast, whey protein) and about 25% healthy fats: omega 3 sources (fish, seafood) and ricebran oil, which helps to increase your sluggish metabolism. Also, to keep your metabolic rate up, divide your daily meals into smaller portions so that you have something to eat handy every 2-3 hours.

Avoid as much as you can all types of sugar (including all fruits except berries) and simple carbohydrates like white flour products and pasta, white rice, potatoes, because they cause a rapid rise of your blood sugar level, which, in turn triggers the release of insulin, the fat-storage hormone. Never end your meals feeling completely full.

Endomorphs typically do best on a higher fat and protein intake with carbohydrate intake being controlled and properly timed (e.g., after exercise). More fat and protein, less carbohydrate.

A nutrient distribution for this body type might be around 25% carbs, 35% protein, and 40% fat.

KNOW YOUR BODY TYPE – YOUR DAILY NEEDS ARE AS IMPORTANT AS YOU ARE !!

She might not be pregnant but a bit irregular period. If the bleeding is more consult a gynaecologist. Otherwise wait for the next cycle and see. Instead of taking pills afterwards try to have protected sex if you want to delay pregnancy. There are many options available and you can adopt one method which will suit you.

Does Your Friend/Relative Have Binge Drinking Problems?

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Does Your Friend/Relative Have Binge Drinking Problems?

Binge drinking is a problem that has been noticed nowadays in many teenagers and youngsters. Whether it is at an event or a party, drinking high doses of alcohol in one sitting is known as binge drinking.

Binge Drinking in Women Is Different from Men

Binge drinking for men is the consumption of more than five alcoholic beverages in one sitting. But the case is different for women. For women binge drinking is defined as a woman consuming more than four alcoholic beverages in a single sitting. Also, it has been found in a survey that almost 75% of the binge drinkers are college students. Among these, the ratio of men is much higher than women.

What Leads to Binge Drinking?

  1. Lack of control: One of the most common reasons is, of course, the lack of control. When such a person comes in contact with alcohol, they tend to over drink because they have no control over their drinking.
  2. The weekend fun: Secondly, another reason is seen in the case of youngsters between the age of 18 years to 35 years. These are youngsters who have a tendency of meeting friends and going out on weekends after the week’s toil. They know that after this weekend they will be able to enjoy their favorite bottle only in the next weekend. Hence, they binge drink.

Results of Binge Drinking

It becomes difficult to check how much alcohol will affect a person, because it depends on various factors, such as height, weight, age and also at times, alcohol tolerance of the person. But of course, there are some common results of binge drinking. Some of such results are:

  • Unintended and unprotected sex leading to pregnancy or even STDs (sexually transmitted diseases) in some cases 
  • Accidents that may lead to severe injuries and even death at times
  • Physical or mental assault of others that the person may regret later on.

When Is Help Required?

When the person has a habit of driving after drinking, neglecting family and doing harm to others as well, help is surely needed. Here, short 4-5 sessions with a therapist may help. A regular drinking habit is no doubt a reason to worry. But binge drinking is another reason that can lead to bigger problems and hence, needs to be examined closely too. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychiatrist.

But till today she didn't got periods. 50 days over. After 30 and 37 days of sex she checked herself by pregnancy kit at home which came negative both time. She sometimes notices the signs of periods like swollen breast and abdomen pain, back pain but didn't got periods. Is this due to that I pill? Please guide us what to do.

Hi Pawan definitely this period problem can be solved. however first the cause must be found out. IN your case there are 2 possibilities, pregnancy and hormonal disturbance due to Ipill. I suggest you repeat the test again but with an early morning sample of urine for accurate results. if still negative we can start with medicines to resume her periods.

My wife is unable to conceive. Her period delayed every time. Every time her period comes in 2-3 months, and comes with the help of pills (regestrone). But this time we had decided not to take pills. So, her last period date was 23rd september 2016. After that period never happens. Now it has been five months. We have checked for pregnancy as well but result is negative. Our marriage completes one year and two months and we want a baby. But due to bad period cycles we are failed every time. We had consult with doctors as well. And gone through several tests like hsg, tsh, prolactin etc. Please suggest.

Looks like she has some hormonal problem due to which she is Not able to produce hormones enough to make the lining of the uteurs. This means she is also not producing an egg (ovum) thats necessary for pregnancy. She needs expert infertility evaluation and you must upload her hormone tests to show the levels. Mostly she will be having PCOD, and may require fertility enhancing medicines to cause ovulation. Do NOT shirk away from medicines. Just making periods by taking a tablet is not good. The treatment must be aimed at making her have ovulation, which will automatically bring her either a period or make her pregnant. DO not do doctor shopping and visit numerous doctors. Find one good one and follow up with that gynecologist for a good 6 months while tests and other treatments are offered to her. If she is overweight, that could be a reason too which may hamper her ovulation and periods. If overweight losing weight is the simplest thing one can do to help oneself.

Hi lybrate user, she can get pregnant in presence of ovarian cyst. As one ovary will be ovulating. If size of ovarian cyst increases during pregnancy then it may produce pain. If cyst is functional cyst may go itself. Not to worry about it if it is simple cyst. Please get colour Doppler done to rule out malignancy.
