Hi lybrate user Painful menses are termed as dysmenorrhoea which is very common . You can manage it by using hot water bottle during the pain. Also regular yoga exercises stretches nd strenthens the muscles which causes less pain during menses. You can also have tea with a pinch of cinnamon powder in it, it really helps in decreasing the pain. Take care

Dental Health Tip
Eating and drinking naturally weakens the enamel on your teeth and brushing straight afterwards can cause tiny particles of enamel to be brushed away. It is best not to brush your teeth until at least one hour after eating.

Sex, Alcohol, and Drugs

Sex, alcohol, and drugs at a glance:

Being drunk or high can cause you to do sexual things that you wouldn't normally want to do.
Mixing sex with drugs and alcohol can increase your risk of unintended pregnancy and STDs.
If you have sex with someone who's drunk or high, it could be considered a crime.

How do alcohol and drugs affect my sex life?

For starters, drugs and underage drinking are illegal. But also, getting drunk or high can cause problems in your sex life — and your relationships.

Mixing drugs (including alcohol) with sex is a bad idea because it can:

Make people have sex or do sexual things they wouldn't want to do if they were sober. Drugs and alcohol affect consent.
Make you forget to have safer sex.
Make you use condoms and birth control wrong.
Make it harder to orgasm (cum).
Make it difficult for guys to get and keep erections.

How can drugs and alcohol affect my decisions about sex?

Drugs and alcohol cloud your judgment. Choices about what music to listen to or what movie to see aren't very important. But the decision to have sex is a big one. Lots of young adults say they've done more sexual stuff after drinking or doing drugs than they'd planned.

And if you're drunk or high, you might not use condoms correctly, or you might forget to use them at all. So mixing sex with alcohol or other drugs increases your risk for unintended pregnancy and STDs.

U can feel baby movements around 16 weeks pregnancy. It varies from patient to patient. Yes, if the cervix is short, you might need to get a cervical encirclage. This will ensure that you do not have a miscarriage. Please get a good ultrasound report to ensure that you have a short or dilated cervix.

High Protein Diet - 7 Things You Must Know About It!

A High protein diet at times restricts some of the healthy and nutritional foods that are very important for your overall health. However, this diet has plenty of advantages along with disadvantages as well. Here are some of the advantages of high protein diet: 

  1. Hair repair and muscle: Protein is a very important component for building & repair of muscle. Hair is made of protein Keratin. So, if one wants healthy hair & strong muscles high protein diet could prove to be very beneficial for you. 
  2. Lessen belly fat: When you consume a high protein diet, a high-quality protein consisting of at least ten grams of Essential Amino Acids (EAA) is taken in. It tends to reduce belly fat. 
  3. Easy to follow: Most of the diets require intake of foods that might be out of your budget. You may also eat foods that you would not like. However, when it comes to a high protein diet, one just has to stick to protein-rich foods. Further there is high likelihood that you will probably enjoy eating them. 
  4. Keeps you full for a longer period: One will not feel hungry or even a bit peckish after consuming a high protein diet. This way you will eat less, consume lesser calories and you end up losing weight faster. 
  5. Energy source: Our body needs macronutrients to function and protein is considered to be one of the best macronutrients. It supplies energy in absence of carbohydrates. 1g of protein supplies 4kcal of energy. It is highly important for your memory, physical activities, thoughts and everyday movement. 
  6. Enhances brain functioning: Protein is considered to be one of the greatest foods for the brain. Amino acids from proteins are used to make neurotransmitters in the brain. Neurotransmitters help your brain communicate and send out signals to your body, and are essential to brain health. Certain neurotransmitters regulate your moods and also play a part in important brain functions like concentration, memory and learning. 
  7. Improves health: Fish is one of the most common foods that one has to consume when you are on a high protein diet. It is full of omega-3 fatty acids that help to lower cholesterol. This reduces our chances of getting or developing any sort of heart disease. It also promotes weight loss. Certain health conditions require restrictions on protein, so, one should follow high protein diet under guidance only. 

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Benefits of Curry Leaves - कढ़ी पत्ते के फायदे

कढ़ी पौधे का वैज्ञानिक नाम मुराया कोइनेगी स्प्रेंग है और यह रूटासी परिवार के अंतर्गत आता है। यह भारत के मूल है और आमतौर पर उष्णकटिबंधीय और उपोष्णकटिबंधीय क्षेत्रों में पाया जाता है। चीन, ऑस्ट्रेलिया, नाइजीरिया और सीलोन जैसे अन्य देशों में इसकी खेती की जाती है। आम तौर पर कढ़ी पत्तों को स्वाद के लिए मसाले के रूप में इस्तेमाल किया जाता है। आयुर्वेद में, माना जाता है कि कढ़ी पत्तियों में कई औषधीय गुण हैं जैसे मधुमेह, एंटीऑक्सिडेंट, एंटीमायोटिक, विरोधी भड़काऊ, विरोधी कार्सिनोजेनिक और हेपेटो-सुरक्षात्मक (क्षति से जिगर को बचाने की क्षमता) गुण।
यह  कार्बोहाइड्रेट,  ऊर्जा,  फाइबर,  कैल्शियम,  फास्फोरस,  लोहा,  मैग्नीशियम,  तांबे  और  खनिजों  जैसे  पोषक  तत्वों  में  समृद्ध  है। इसमें निकोटीनिक एसिड और विटामिन सी, विटामिन ए, विटामिन बी, विटामिन ई, एंटीऑक्सिडेंट, प्लांट स्टीरोल, एमिनो एसिड, ग्लाइकोसाइड्स और फ्लेवोनोइड जैसे विभिन्न विटामिन भी शामिल हैं। 
 

कढ़ी पत्ते के फायदे 
अधिकतर खाने के दौरान छोड़ दिया जातें हैं, लेकिन खपत करने पर वे कई स्वास्थ्य लाभ प्रदान कर सकते हैं, जैसे कि:
1. एनीमिया के लिए: कढ़ी पत्ते  लोहे  और  फोलिक  एसिड  का  समृद्ध  स्रोत  हैं। फोलिक एसिड मुख्य रूप से लौह अवशोषण के लिए जिम्मेदार है।
2. दस्त के लिए: कढ़ी पत्तों  अपच  समस्याओं  का  इलाज  करने  में  बहुत  प्रभावी  ढंग  से  मदद  करता  है। कढ़ी पत्तियों में मौजूद कारबज़ोल अल्कलॉइड्स में एंटी-अतिसार गुण होते हैं। कढ़ी पत्तों की चबाई दस्त और मितली का इलाज करने का एक अच्छा तरीका है।
3. पाचन के लिए: कढ़ी पत्तियों में कारमनेटिवे और हल्के रेचक गुण हैं और इस प्रकार, अपच के खिलाफ अत्यधिक प्रभावी हैं।
4. छाती और नाक में जमाव के लिए: यह विटामिन सी, ए और यौगिकों जैसे कैम्फेरोल जो कि एक बहुत ही शक्तिशाली एंटी-सूजन, विसंकुलक और एंटीऑक्सीडिव एजेंट है, के साथ पैक है। यदि आप एक गीली खाँसी, साइनसाइटिस या छाती में जमाव से पीड़ित हैं, कढ़ी पत्तियों से श्लेष्म के जमाव को रिलीज करने में मदद मिल सकती है।
5. दृष्टि के लिए: कढ़ी पत्ते में उच्च मात्रा में विटामिन ए होता है और इसलिए दृष्टि के लिए अच्छा है।
6. रक्त शर्करा के स्तर को बनाए रखने के लिए: कढ़ी पत्ते इंसुलिन गतिविधि को प्रभावित करके रक्त शर्करा के स्तर को कम कर देते हैं। 
7. कीमोथेरपी के दुष्प्रभावों को कम कर सकते हैं: कढ़ी पत्तों  में  कीमोथेरेपी  और  रेडियोथेरेपी  के  खराब  प्रभाव  से  शरीर  की  रक्षा  करने  की  अद्भुत  क्षमता  होती  है। यह न केवल क्रोमोसोम और अस्थि-मज्जा को नुकसान से बचाता है बल्कि शरीर में मुक्त कणों का उत्पादन भी रोकता है।
8. कैंसर के लिए: कढ़ी पत्तों में पाए जाने वाले रासायनिक घटकों जैसे फ़िनॉल ल्यूकेमिया, प्रोस्टेट और कोलोरेक्टल जैसे कैंसर से लड़ने में सहायक होते हैं।
9. लंबे, स्वस्थ और सुंदर बालों के लिए: कढ़ी पत्ते हमेशा बाल के भूरे होने को रोकने में मदद करने के लिए जाना जाता है। यह क्षतिग्रस्त बालों, लंगड़ा बालों को बाउंस जोड़ने, पतले बालों की शाफ्ट को मजबूत करने, बाल गिरने और रूसी का इलाज करने में बहुत प्रभावी है। कढ़ी पत्ते बालों को पोषक तत्वों की विस्तृत श्रृंखला प्रदान करते हैं जो कि रोम को मजबूत करने में सहायता करता है। कढ़ी पत्ते में उच्च मात्रा में विटामिन बी 6 होते हैं, जो बालों के झड़ने या नुकसान को रोकने के लिए बालों के लिए हार्मोन को नियंत्रित करने में सक्षम है। इसलिए, उनके पास बालों की जड़ और बाल शाफ्ट दोनों को मजबूत करने की क्षमता है।
कढ़ी पत्ते बालों के विकास के लिए एक महान उत्तेजक के रूप में भी काम करते हैं। तेल में मिलाकर सूखी कढ़ी पत्ती पाउडर अपने बालों को एक त्वरित मालिश के साथ लागू किया जा सकता है। 
10. कोलेस्ट्रॉल के स्तर को कम करता है: एंटीऑक्सिडेंट्स से भरा, कढ़ी पत्ते कोलेस्ट्रॉल के ऑक्सीकरण को रोक के एलडीएल कोलेस्ट्रॉल को बनने से रोकते हैं। यह बदले में अच्छे कोलेस्ट्रॉल (एचडीएल) की मात्रा बढ़ाने में मदद करता है और आपके शरीर को हृदय रोग और एथेरोस्लेरोसिस जैसी स्थितियों से बचाता है।

4 Common Reasons to Visit a Gynaecologist

4 Common Reasons to Visit a Gynaecologist

Women do not normally visit a gynaecologist, until they are suffering from any problem. Visiting a gynaecologist at regular intervals is important for good health.

Following are the 4 common reasons to visit a gynaecologist:

  1. Itchy vagina - Vaginal itching is very commonly ignored as most women consider it to be embarrassing, and as something that does not require any attention. However vaginal itching may be an indication of something more serious. Usually vaginal itching is a sign of fungal infection or a symptom of a sexually transmitted disease. In the worst-case scenario, it can even be a sign of vulvar cancer (a cancer of the vulva, which is the external part of your vagina).
  2. Painful sex - Most women feel that it is normal to feel a little bit of pain in your vagina during sex. However, the truth is that pain during sex is not at all normal. If you feel pain while indulging in sexual activity, there are chances of you suffering from either vaginal dryness or a mild infection, which if left untreated can become worse. Some of these infections can even be STDs such as herpes, gonorrhoea etc.
  3. Lump in your breast - A lump in the breast, whether or not accompanied by a bloody discharge from your nipples, is most likely a warning sign of cancer. You should also watch out for any type of pain in your breasts or even an abnormal growth as all of these indicate the development of cancerous cells in the breasts.
  4. Considerable bleeding during periods - If you bleed heavily during your periods, so much so that you have to change your sanitary napkin 2-3 times in just one to two hours, it's a cause of concern. If this heavy menstrual flow is also accompanied with shortness of breath and rapid heart rate, you may be suffering from anaemia. In extreme cases (which is very rare), this can lead to extreme blood loss, which may require a blood transfusion.

My friend wife is planning for iui/ivf. But my friends showed negative signs as he is not willing to sign the paper. His question is; 1. Should the baby born after will look likes his/her mother? 2. Fearing of what will society says if the baby look totally different from parents. please help him.

MBBS, DGO, MD, Fellowship in Gynae Oncology
Gynaecologist, Delhi
If a couple is going for self ivf then the baby will be as the parents only with the same genetics and looks. In case of donor ivf baby may look different but not too much as donor selected is matched with the patient profile, and baby will have dna of the parent. If a couple wants to be parents then there is no such thing to worry about society, people adopt a child as well and it is not a bad thing. To become a parent is ones right, and it is not bad. So don't worry about such things.
