What to do when placenta is in lower side will placenta can change its position.

MBBS, DGO (cal)
General Physician,
You just follow advice of your obstetrician. Depending on gestation period, there is a relative migration, as the uterus and placenta grows. Don't worry minor lower position (type-i, posterior or up to type-ii anterior) do not causes any problem, unless there is accidental haemorrhage.

Calcium Defiency in women

Diet is a well balanced food combination which should be tailored according to personal needs and as circumstances changes specially. The wrong food can fail to nourish us, can keep us awake at night, make us sluggish and overweight or tense us up;

Major points to be kept in mind to plan our diet are:

  • Personal Needs.
  • Stages of our life.
  • Lifestyle.
  • Genetic and temperament conditions.
  • Clinical condition.
  • Personal needs are likes, dislikes and your time availability
  • Stages of our life we are in is very important as age plays a major role. So, supplement and manipulation of food group depends on our age.


There are many health problems those arise because of lifestyle we follow:

  • Posture-related problems.
  • Fatigue.
  • Mental health disorders, like depression and anxiety.
  • Obesity.
  • Heart disease.
  • High blood pressure.
  • Abnormal heart beats.
  • Menstrual problems.
  • Acne and other skin problems.


Common deficiencies noted in women are:

  • Calcium
  • Vitamins-D
  • Protein.
  • Phosphorus

Vegetarian and non - vegetarian diet have their unique role in maintaining bone mineral metabolism of body.

  1. Calcium Deficiency in women makes entire matrix of the bone week, therefore keeping check of calcium in our diet can prevent women from osteoporosis in later ages after menopause. Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the human body, with over 99% of the amount present is being found in the bones and teeth. After the age of 35, both men and women start losing calcium from their bones. During menopause, however, the rate of loss increases rapidly for women. It also has a role to play in nerve function, blood clotting, muscle health, and other areas.
  2. Source of calcium
  • Milk
  • Paneer
  • Almonds
  • Seeds-sesame ,sunflower , cheese
  • Soya bean and their products

Learn to combine calcium rich food for proper absorption, food contain oxalic acid prevent ca absorption like spinach and lotus stem.

  • Sources of protein: like fish, meat, Poultry, eggs are also important.
  • Source of vitamin-D: Vitamin D can be obtained from sun exposure, food like eggs, mushrooms, orange and fish.
  • Source of Phosphorus: Phosphorus is found in high amounts in protein rich foods such as milk and milk products and meat and alternatives, such as beans, lentils, nuts, Sunflower Seeds and Broccoli.

Common menstrual problems faced by women are cramps, pcod, menorrhagia, and amenorrhea.

Certain foods like caffeine, alcohol, caffeinated tea and high salt diets increases intensity of cramps. Include 'Ca' rich foods like broccoli, low fat yoghurt, high fiber diets and omega-3 rich foods to help you during your menstrual cycle.

Working women should Try to include energy booster snacks like nuts for mid meals and plan carbohydrate rich diets with more of complex carbs in form of roasted grains and cereals bars. Keeping a check on amount of water intake is also very important. Replace caffeinated drinks with herbal infusion and buttermilk for detoxification of the body.

Ultimately we have to overcome the fatigue, lethargy and all the clinical condition by planning our meals and having a well balanced diet for a healthy body.

Debunking 5 Myths Of Homeopathy

Debunking 5 Myths Of Homeopathy

Homeopathy is a widely accepted alternative system of medicine which was discovered in the late 18th century. Homeopathy believes in the philosophy that the mind, emotions and the body are integrated together. On the basis of this philosophy, a homeopath provides remedies which can suit best to the physical and psychological conditions of a patient. Homeopathic remedies are certainly not very high dose. Its main purpose is to recognize and discard the cause behind the condition.

People hold many misconceptions about homeopathy. Following are some of the myths of homeopathy:

  1. Homeopathic remedies work slowly: Many people believe that homeopathic remedies cure your medical condition very slowly. Fact is that it works very fast on diseases like cold, fever, etc. When the symptoms are chronic, then only working process is slow. This is because in chronic condition, the body takes little time to cure from inside. It is advisable to start the homeopathic remedies as soon as any symptom is seen.
  2. Remedies are prescribed by doctors with no formal training: Many people believe that homeopathic remedies are prescribed simply on the basis of the visible symptoms and no diagnosis is done. Fact is that these remedies are prescribed by qualified medical professionals graduated from homeopathy medical colleges. They diagnose your medical condition before prescribing you any remedy.
  3. Homeopathic remedies are not scientific: Many people consider homeopathic remedies to be unscientific. However, the basis behind homeopathy is pharmacological and clinical data. Vast studies and researches have been conducted on homeopathic remedies and treatment. 
  4. Strict dietary restriction is to be followed at the time of homeopathic treatment: Many people believe that they have to control on their eating habits while undergoing homeopathic treatment. Fact is that for some patients, ingredients like garlic, onion, alcohol, coffee, tobacco etc. are to be avoided during the tenure of treatment. This is simply because these ingredients interfere with the homeopathic treatment. 
  5. Homeopathy can cure any disorder: Some people have a strong belief that homeopathic remedies can cure any disorder or any medical condition. Fact is that this remedy is completely ineffective in case of dental issues or any condition where surgery is the only remedy.

Symptoms and Causes of Depression

Although confused with natural and temporal feelings of grief or sadness, depression is not merely a weakness or something to be taken lightly. It is quite a serious issue and can last for long periods of time. 

Depression does not merely involve feelings of hopelessness, helplessness, and worthlessness, but is much more terrible and usually has a detrimental effect on your day-to-day functioning.

There are many different types of depression. These include:

1. Major depression
2. Bipolar depression
3. Psychotic depression
4. Chronic depression (even dysthymia)
5. Seasonal depression
6. Substance-induced depression
7. Postpartum depression
8. Double depression
9. Treatment-resistant depression
10. Secondary depression
11. Masked depression

Symptoms: Signs and symptoms of clinical depression can vary depending largely on how severe it is, how long it lasts and how often it comes into play, and differs from individual to individual. While some might experience but a few signs of depression, others might experience more. Here is a list of symptoms that might indicate that you may be suffering from depression:

1. Being depressed for most parts of the day, especially in the morning
2. Feeling guilty or worthless almost every day
3. More inclined towards pessimism
4. Insomnia or hypersomnia
5. Regular contemplations of death or suicide
6. Significant weight gains or weight loss
7. Appetite loss or overeating
8. Feelings of high fatigue and low energy levels almost every day
9. Indecisiveness or impaired focus and difficulty concentrating
10. Lack of interest in almost all daily activities or hobbies, including sexual activity
11. Irritability and restlessness
12. Cramps, headaches and digestive problems which persist even with treatment

Causes: Although the exact causes of depression have not been determined as of yet, depression may be caused by a combination of a number of factors:

1. Biological differences

3. Brain chemistry
4. Inherited traits or genetic disorders.

If your periods r irregular, it doesn't mean you're nearing menopause since you're aged 33 only, take ayurvedic medications like asokaristam, sukumara kwatha, chandraprabha tablet, rajapravartini vati, ovarin syrup, consult me private for dosages

The Dangers of Smoking and Drinking During Pregnancy

MHA, PGDPMC, DGO, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Delhi
The Dangers of Smoking and Drinking During Pregnancy

Pregnancy is a time when you have to be at your vigilant best even as you go about your normal life. If you happen to be a smoker and enjoy a drink once in a while, then it may be time to change these habits. Ideally, one should let go of these habits as soon as the couple starts trying for a baby, as how you treat your body in the preconception stage will have a great bearing on how your body adjusts to pregnancy and the aftermath of childbirth. Let us find out the dangers of smoking and drinking during pregnancy. (Learn more about healthy pregnancy)

  1. Alcohol and Your Baby: While you may be thinking that a drink or two of wine in a week may not do any harm to your foetus, this is actually a misnomer. One should steer clear of even a sip as the alcohol usually ends up passing through you placenta and right into your growing foetus.
  2. Alcohol Break Down: When the alcohol gets passed through your system and into the baby, there is a definite health hazard to the foetus. This is due to the fact that the body tends to break down alcohol in a much slower manner, than it would break down any other food or beverage. And the risk is that much more heightened in case of the growing foetus, because the tiny bodies are not equipped to handle the breaking down process properly. This may lead to a rise of the blood alcohol level of the foetus, keeping it at that level even after the mother's blood alcohol level has been restored to normal.
  3. Retardation and Other Related Ailments: When the blood alcohol level of the baby remains high, it can lead to a variety of problems that can go from mild to severe. Retardation, heart ailments and more can be born from this issue. Also, this can lead to deformed facial features as well as behavioural problems like aggression.
  4. Smoking and Low Birth Weight: When you smoke during your pregnancy, it doubles your risk of birthing a baby whose weight is significantly lower than the acceptable standard and what is considered normal (learn more about the affect of smoking on your and your baby's health)
  5. Smoking and Other Complications: Also, smoking during pregnancy increases the chances of having an ectopic pregnancy, which can lead to the loss of the foetus. Further, you can also end up having a premature baby, if you smoke during pregnancy, as this will lead to the burst of your water before the actual labour begins. Finally, smoking during pregnancy can give rise to complications in the placenta, which will result in a separation of the placenta from the uterine wall, much before the delivery actually happens.

14th day after 1st day of periods is the ovulation time, means that the mature egg is released by ovary and it travels towards uterus via fallopian tubes, stays in uterus for 48 hours fertilisation, no fertilisation ,egggets destroyed and period occurs soon, if fertilisation has occured , the hormones increase manifold under orders of higher centers present in pitutary gland in the brain. but these are ideal and bookish things. through our practice we have seen women conceiving just after period ( rape victims) or just before the cycle because the woman was sure about it, her husband visited her for a day or so due to touring jobs. yes pregnancies have been reported during periods . concept of safe period for planning a family is not relevant anymore.
