Periods Aane Ke Gharelu Nuskhe - पीरियड्स आने के घरेलू नुस्खे

MBBS, M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition

Periods Aane Ke Gharelu Nuskhe - पीरियड्स आने के घरेलू नुस्खे

अमूमन पीरियड यानि महिलाओं को होने वाले मासिक धर्म से हम सभी वाकिफ़ होते हैं .यह महीने में एक बार होता है इसीलिए इसे मासिक धर्म कहा जाता है. महिलाओं के लिए यह भले असुविधाजनक होता है पर हर एक के जीवन में इसका बहुत महत्व है. क्योंकि मासिक धर्म का होना और खासकर नियमित होना एक महिला के सहज माँ बनने और स्वस्थ होने की निशानी होती है. करीब १२-१३ की उम्र से ५० साल की उम्र तक आने वाले इस मासिक धर्म में अगर कभी रुकावट आ जाए या यह अनियमित हो जाए तो इसे गंभीर समस्या के रूप में लेनी चाहिए. और समय रहते इस समस्या से निजात पाने की कोशिश करनी चाहिए. एक खास बात  की एक स्टडी के अनुसार इस समस्या से 5 में से 3 लड़कियां परेशान हैं. यह खास समस्या आम हो चली इन दिनों . अब हम आपको मासिक धर्म की अनियमितता को सुधारने के लिए घरेलु उपाय बताएं इसके पहले हम आपको बताते हैं इसके लक्षण और कारण. 

पीरियड्स की अनियमितता के लक्षण 
गर्भाशय के हिस्से में दर्द, भूख न लगना, छाती में दर्द, दूध कम निकलना, दिल धड़कना, सांस लेने में तकलीफ, कान में तरह-तरह की आवाजें सुनाई पड़ना, नींद न आना, दस्त लगना, पेट में दर्द, शरीर में सूजन, मानसिक तनाव, हाथ, पैर व कमर में दर्द, थकावट, शरीर में दर्द जैसी स्थिति पीरियड रुकने के लक्षण होते हैं .

मासिक धर्म की अनियमितता के कारण 
स्मोकिंग, तम्बाकू, कॉफ़ी  या दुसरे प्रकार के नशे करना, ज्यादा व्यायाम, थायरोइड, ज्यादा दवा खाने, आलसपन, खून की कमी, पीरियड के दौरान ठंडी चीजें खाने, ठंड लगने, पानी में ज्यादा समय तक भीगने, ज्यादा घुमने, मानसिक तनाव, शुगर एनीमिया और पीरियड के समय खाने-पीने में लापरवाही जैसे कारणों से मासिक धर्म रुक जाता है या अनियमित हो जाता है.

सही समय पर माहवारी आने के लिए अब हम आपको बताएंगे नीचे कुछ  घरेलू नुस्खे जिसे इस्तेमाल करके आपको जरुर फायदा होगा . 

1. दालचीनी 
दालचीनी की तासीर गरम होती है, साथ ही इसमें ऐसे गुण पाए जाते हैं जो पीरियड में देर की प्राब्लम को कम करते हैं और मासिक धर्म के लक्षणों से भी बचाते हैं. एक हालिया से  शोध पता चला है की दालचीनी में पाया जाने वाला हाइड्रोक्साइकलोन  मासिक धर्म को रेगुलर करने में सहायक होता है. इसलिए इसे अपने भोजन में शामिल करें. इसके अलावा आप इसे खा भी सकती हैं . अगर आयुर्वेद की माने तो आधा चम्मच दालचीनी रोजाना रात को एक ग्लास दूध में घोल कर पीने से काफी फ़ायदा मिलता है.

2. अदरक 
अदरक में पीरियड आने में देरी या अनियमितता को दूर कर उन्हें फिर से शुरू करवाने में हेल्प करने वाले गुण समाहित हैं . साथ ही अदरक के औषधीय गुण पीरियड के समय होने वाले पेट  दर्द, मरोड़ आदि को होने से भी रोकते हैं. पीरियड में देरी हो या कोई और समस्या अदरक का इस्तेमाल है अचूक उपचार . बस एक चम्मच सुखी अदरक को या फिर अदरक की पेस्ट को एक कप पानी के साथ कुछ देर उबालिए और इसमें थोड़ी सी चीनी मिलाकर दिन में ३ बार पिएं . तो अब से नियमित करें अदरक का इस्तेमाल . अदरक हर किसी के लिए लाभदायक है  .

3. एलोवेरा 
एलोवेरा में मौजूद होते हैं हॉर्मोन्स को सही स्तर पर रखने वाली क्वालिटी . इसके ताजे रस को शहद के साथ मिलाकर रोज सुबह अपने  ब्रेकफास्ट के साथ लें, जल्द ही आपके पीरियड रेग्युलर हो ज़ाएँगे.पर हाँ ध्यान रहे की इसका इस्तेमाल भी पीरियड के दौरान न करें.

4. हरा या कच्चा पपीता 
वैसे तो पपीता बहुत सी चीजों के लिए फायदेमंद होता है पर कच्चे हरे पपीते में गर्भाशय को सुन्कुंचित करने की क्षमता होती है . और इसी वजह से इसे खाने से आपका पीरियड सही समय पर आने लगता है. ये मानसिक तनाव और रजोनिवृत्ति के कारण मासिक चक्र में देरी होने को सही करने के लिए काफी अहम माना जाता है. पीरियड्स के दौरान परहेज बस उसके वाला आप कच्चे पपीते का जूस भी रोजाना पी सकती हैं. 

5. गुड़ और तिल के दाने
तिल के बीज और गुड इन दोनो का नियमित इस्तेमाल शरीर के हॉर्मोन स्तर को बैलेंस   करके पीरियड के अनियमितता की तकलीफ को ठीक करता है. तिल में पाए जाने वाले लिग्नांस आपके शरीर में सामान्य से अधिक पाए जाने वाले हॉर्मोन्स को बंद कर उनके असर को ख़तम करते हैं. तो आप बस इतना करें की  एक मुट्ठी तिल के दानो को भुन कर उनका पाउडर  बना लें  और एक चम्मच गुड को पाउडर के साथ मिला मिलाएं. इस मिश्रण का एक चम्मच रोजाना अपने पीरियड शुरू होने के दो हफ्ते पहले से खाना शुरू कर दें. गुड की गरम तासीर से आप मासिक धर्म को नॉर्मल कर सकती हैं. पर ध्यान दें की इस मिश्रण का सेवन पीरियड के दौरान न करें .

इन घरेलु नुस्खों को अपनाकर आप जरुर पीरियड को नियमित करने में कामयाब होंगे और अगर फिर भी समस्या बनी रहे तो डॉक्टर सालाह जरुर लें .

Condoms can protect you against sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and they can be used to prevent pregnancy. A male condom is placed over a man's erect penis before sex. Condoms are also called "rubbers," "sheaths," or "skins." Condoms are made of latex (rubber), polyurethane, or sheep intestine. Take care.

Dear user. I can understand. There is a specific prescribed diet pattern for pregnant women and especially in the beginning your pregnancy you should follow that prescribed diet. If you don't follow the prescribed diet pattern, the child may be malnourished. Please consult your gynecologist to get advice and diet chart. Take care.

Hi dear, the reason for white discharge can be your vaginal or cervical infection. You have to first get thorough check up and treatment for the same before you conceive because ongoing infection if present, can go up in uterus and again lead to preterm labour. All the best.

It is called menorrhagia. Get an ultrasound pelvis done. You need to visit a gynaec for finding out the cause of this problem. Do not worry. Once the cause is found it can be treated accordingly. Also you need to take iron supplements as you r loosing so much of blood. Else you will be become anemic. Best is to visit a gynaec soon. Do not hesitate.

10 Side Effects of Birth Control Pills

10 Side Effects of Birth Control Pills

Most medications are used because of their one particular therapeutic effect. However, invariably, they affect other organs or systems and produce some good and some adverse effects. The same happens with birth control pills (BCPs), which are the most commonly used method of contraception. It is also the most effective method. It contains the female hormones estrogen and progesterone in various combinations and these have an effect on various body functions, so it should come as a surprise that regular use of BCPs leads to a number of side effects.

Read on to know more

  1. Intermenstrual bleeding: This is the most common side effect and occurs in about 90% of the women, but usually subsides within 3 months. They experience bleeding between their regular periods. While mere spotting can be ignored, bleeding for more than 4 to 5 days needs a visit to the doctor.
  2. Missed period: It is very essential to take the pill at the same time daily. Sometimes, a period might be missed or may be very light and this should be reported.
  3. Effect on libido: While some report a decrease in libido, there are others who experience an increased sex drive. This depends on the individual and not consistent.
  4. Vaginal discharge: The amount and type of discharge can change when on the pill. Decreased lubrication may lead to a reduced sex drive, as it might be painful. If the discharge is foul-smelling or looks suspicious for an infection, then a doctor should be consulted.
  5. Mood changes: Changes in mood and prominent mood swings are very common in women using contraceptives, with many feeling depressed often.
  6. Effects on breasts: While it is not yet proven if they increase the risk of breast cancer, most women experience breast enlargement, tenderness, and sometimes pain. This is more common in between their periods.
  7. Headaches and migraine: BCPs are also proven to have worsening effects on migraine and headaches.
  8. Circulatory effects: Oral contraceptives increase the chances of heart attack and stroke, especially in women who are over 35 and are smokers. Most women experience a slight increase in blood pressure and are more prone to form blood clots. It is essential that contraceptives are used under medical guidance only.
  9. Digestive effects: Oral contraceptives can cause loss of appetite, changes in body weight, diarrhea, and nausea. The weight gain is also attributed to increased fluid retention, especially in the hip and breast areas.
  10. Skin: Some women may experience skin rashes and acne and sometimes hair loss due to the increased level of hormones in circulation.

It is very important that the pill is taken at the same time for best results. Any suspicious symptom should be immediately reported to the doctor.

Tips For Preventing Birth Defects

Tips For Preventing Birth Defects

Although the cause of over 60% of birth defects are not known, there are things that you can do to help ensure optimal health for your baby.

There are a number of things you can do to increase the probability of having a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby. Some are more challenging than others because they may require that you break bad habits, but it is worth your effort.

Here are a variety of tips you can use to prevent birth defects as you contemplate starting or adding to your family:

  1. The first and foremost tip is maintaining preconception health; eating well balanced and nutritional meals, and taking a multivitamin daily that includes the recommended 400 mcg of folic acid.
  2. If you are sexually active and pregnancy is a possibility, make sure you take a multivitamin daily, which includes the recommended 400 mcg of folic acid and other essential B vitamins.
  3. Avoid all activities that could potentially lead to birth defects, including alcohol, tobacco, illicit drugs, and caffeine.
  4. Seek an annual gynecological and wellness exam.
  5. Obtain genetic counseling and birth defect screening, particularly if you have any family history of birth defects or if you are 35 years of age or older. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.

As your age is just 26 and you have been trying for conception for past 6 months only, I would suggest that instead of visiting a doctor's clinic, you shud visit a a hill station etc. Just have a good time with your hubby and forget about ovulation etc. Fertile period is approx 10 days after your periods and maximum chances of conception are during the week, following your 10th day of cycle. If even after another 6 months of unprotected intercourse, you r unable to concieve then visit a gynaec also try to reduce some weight, if you are able to reduce 10 kgs of weight, your ovulation will normalise on its own. Go for a morning walk, jogging etc.

Hello- First of all don't worry as she have bled after sex so surely your friend is not pregnant. Secondly the irregularity in menses is due to the intake of i-pill. It is a hormonal contraceptive pill which disturbs hormonal balance in the body. Her next menses (3rd one) will be normal.
