Hi, Often, Irregular periods are mostly due to PCOD and in PCOD patients, ovulation does not occur and hence is one of the reason for infertility. Therefore, please undergo an U/S scan of pelvis for confirmation.

Hemorrhagic cyst is a simple fluid filled bag in your ovary. It is the remains of the follicle from which you have ovulated the previous month. It is usually harmless and resolves spontaneously within a couple of months.

Side Effects of Air Pollution in Hindi - वायु प्रदूषण के दुष्प्रभाव

Side Effects of Air Pollution in Hindi - वायु प्रदूषण के दुष्प्रभाव

वायु प्रदुषण आज सम्पूर्ण विश्व के लिए चिंता का विषय बना हुआ है. ऐसा नहीं है कि हमेशा से ये स्थिति थी. प्राचीन काल में हमारे सामने वायु प्रदूषण जैसी समस्या नहीं आई क्योंकि प्रदूषण का दायरा सीमित था. इसके अलावा प्रकृति भी पर्यावरण को संतुलित रखने का लगातार प्रयास करती रहती है. प्रकृति के संतुलन से और उस समय प्रदूषण के सीमित होने के कारण पहले हमें ऐसी विकट स्थिति का मामना नहीं करना पड़ता था. लेकिन आज हम तथाकथित विकास के नाम पर कई ऐसे काम कर रहे हैं जिनका असर वायु की शुद्धता पर पड़ रहा है. औद्योगीकरण के बाद से लगातार उत्पादन क्षमता बढ़ता जा रहा है.

दरअसल हम सभी ने अपने औद्योगिक लाभ के लिए बिना सोचे-समझे प्राकृतिक साधनों का भयंकर दोहन और विनाश किया है. इसी कारण से प्राकृति का सन्तुलन बिगड़ने लगा और फिर वायुमंडल भी इससे बच नहीं सका. आज भारत के साथ विश्व के कई देश इसके दुष्प्रभाव को झेलने के लिए बाध्य हैं. आपको बता दें कि हमारे वायुमण्डल में नाइट्रोजन, आक्सीजन, कार्बन डाई आक्साइड, कार्बन मोनो आक्साइड आदि गैसों की उपस्थिति एक निश्चित अनुपात में रहती है. जब किसी अन्य कारणों से इनके अनुपात के सन्तुलन में परिवर्तन होता है तो वायुमण्डल अशुद्ध हो जाता है. वायुमंडल को अशुद्ध करने वाले कार्बन डाई आक्साइड, कार्बन मोनो आक्साइड, नाइट्रोजन आक्साइड, हाइड्रोकार्बन, धूल मिट्टी के कण हैं जो वायुमण्डल को प्रदूषित करने का काम करते हैं. आइए वायु प्रदुषण के कुछ महत्वपूर्ण दुष्प्रभावों को जानें.

1. श्वसन की समस्याएं
वायु प्रदुषण का सबसे बड़ा दुष्प्रभाव ये है कि इससे वायुमण्डल में लगातार अवांछित रूप से कार्बन डाइ आक्साइड, कार्बन मोनो आक्साइड, नाइट्रोजन, आक्साइड, हाइड्रो कार्बन आदि हमारे फेफड़ों से होता हुआ शरीर के अंदर जाता रहे तो श्वसन से संबंधित कई तरह की परेशानियाँ उत्पन्न हो सकती हैं. इसमें आपको उल्टी घुटन, सिर दर्द, आँखों में जलन आदि समस्याएं हो सकती हैं.
2. भूमि की उर्वरता नष्ट होती है
आज के समय में बहुतायत मात्रा में मौजूद वाहनों व कारखानों से निकलने वाले धुएँ में सल्फर डाइ आक्साइड की मात्रा पाई जाती है. ये पहले सल्फाइड और इसके बाद सल्फ्यूरिक अम्ल में परिवर्तित होकर वायु में बूदों के रूप में मौजूद रहती है. जब वर्षा का मौसम आता है तो यह वर्षा के पानी के साथ पृथ्वी पर गिरती है जिससे कि भूमि की अम्लता बढ़ती है और उत्पादन-क्षमता घटने लगती है.
3. कैंसर की संभावना
प्रदूषित वायु के कई तरह के जहरीले तत्व पाए जाते हैं जिनसे कैंसर जैसी खरनाक बीमारियाँ हो सकती हैं. प्रदुषण के कारण निकली कुछ रासायनिक गैसें वायुमण्डल में पहुँच कर वहाँ ओजोन मण्डल से क्रिया करके उसकी मात्रा को घटाने का काम करती हैं. जाहिर है ओजोन मण्डल अन्तरिक्ष से आने वाली हानिकारक विकरणों को अवशोषित कर लेती है. इसलिए ओजोन मण्डल हमारे लिए ढाल का काम करता है. लेकिन प्रदुषण के कारण जब ओजोन मण्डल कमजोर पड़ता है तो तब त्वचा कैंसर जैसे भयंकर रोग हो सकते हैं.
4. प्राचीन स्मारकों पर दुष्प्रभाव
वायु प्रदुषण का प्रभाव विभिन्न प्राणियों के स्वास्थ्य पर तो पड़ता ही है भवनों, धातु व स्मारकों आदि का भी क्षय होता है. इसका उदाहरण ताजमहल को खतरा मथुरा तेल शोधक कारखाने से हुआ नुकसान है.
5. ऑक्सीजन की कमी
हमारे वायुमण्डल में वायु पप्रदुषण के कारण आक्सीजन के स्तर में आती लगातार कमी मानवों के साथ-साथ विभिन्न प्राणियों के लिए भी घातक है. आक्सीजन की कमी से प्राणियों को श्वसन में बाधा आयेगी.
6. अन्य प्राणियों पर
वायु प्रदुषण के कारणों के जड़ में केवल मनुष्य हैं लेकिन इसका दुष्परिणाम हमारे साथ-साथ विभिन्न प्राणी भी भुगत रहे हैं. कारखानों से निकलने के बाद कई हानिकारक रासायनिक पदार्थ व गैसों का अवशोषण फसलों, वृक्षों आदि द्वारा किए जाने पर प्राणियों पर बुरा प्रभाव पड़ेगा.

Yes she can take. Other than that, reassure her and encourage her to keep breastfeeding. The emotional bond between mother and child will help in milk generation also.

7 Confidence-Killing Words and Phrases to Ban From Your Vocabulary

PGDRP, MPhil, PGDGC
Psychologist, Delhi
7 Confidence-Killing Words and Phrases to Ban From Your Vocabulary

Confidence is a state where you know and understand yourself enough to put forth your thoughts and actions without being bothered or shot down by people around you. Yet, there are various situations that create a less than stellar performance in the confidence game. Many times, we end up behaving in a way that points to low confidence and self-esteem. While body language plays a huge role here, words and phrases also matter. So what are the confidence killing words and phrases that you need to ban from your life? Take a look at this list!

  1. Just: This single word can undermine your intentions and make things seem less casual than they actually are. Sometimes, we get intimidated by the person or the situation and end up down playing things by saying, I was just thinking about it like this.
  2. I am no expert: When you start a sentence by tearing yourself down, you are putting yourself up for rejection.
  3. What if: While a 'what if' may be a good idea in particularly trying situations where you are faced with a person who may be in panic or anxiety, this is not a good phrase to use at work and in life, in general. It shows that you have not thought of the option properly.
  4. I cannot: This single phrase can demolish relationships, both personal and professional within a matter of seconds. Nothing says you do not own your domain more than this phrase. When you say you can't or you cannot, you are effectively giving up and handing over control to someone else which is a downward spiral as far as your confidence goes.
  5. Like, so: Unless you are starring in a chick flick, we would recommend that you stop using this fluffy and light weight phase, 'that is like, so cool'. Yes, it may be cool, but saying it is cool, will more than suffice. When you use phrases like these, you are basically telling the world that you do not take yourself seriously enough to talk like a serious person.
  6. Exclamations: Using exclamations at the end of thanks or any other word, can show that you were not confident of getting the task done. Be grateful, but do not make it sound like relief.
  7. Sense: 'Am I making sense' or nonsense are words that you need to send away from your vocabulary, as they denote a low sense of confidence and also show that you do not have confidence in the people around you.So get into a more confident mode by removing these seven words and phrases from your life.

Vaginal Dryness: One of the Most Common Female Sexual Health Problem

During menopause, estrogen production slows and then stops. There are a number of changes, which occur in your body during this time. Periods become irregular and then stop. You may have hot flashes, mood swings, a deeper voice and an increase in facial hair. Vaginal dryness is another common symptom of menopause. It becomes even more common after menopause. Vaginal dryness also can occur at any age from a number of different causes. It may seem like just a minor irritation; however, it can be a major problem when it comes to your sex life. Here is everything you need to know about vaginal dryness:

What causes vaginal dryness in women
Even though menopause is the most common cause of vaginal dryness, it can happen at any age and there are various causes of vaginal dryness as well. Here they are;

  1. Childbirth and Breastfeeding: Childbirth as well as breastfeeding result in lower levels of estrogen and this can lead to vaginal dryness.
  2. Sjogrens Syndrome: This is an autoimmune disorder in which your immune system attacks the moisture producing cells in your body.
  3. Douching: Douching is a common practice done by women wherein, they wash their vagina using water and vinegar, knowing little that it can actually cause dryness.

Treatment
As mentioned earlier, vaginal dryness is caused by a lack of estrogen. Here are some of the ways that estrogen is supplied to your body;

  1. Vaginal Estrogen Ring: This is a ring inserted into your vagina, which releases a steady stream of estrogen into your vaginal tissues. It needs a replacement, generally after three months.
  2. Vaginal Estrogen Tablet: A special device called an applicator is used to insert an estrogen tablet into your vagina.
  3. Vaginal Estrogen Cream: This also needs to be inserted through an applicator. It will be applied daily for the first two weeks after which, it will be applied one to three times a week. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

How to Use Heat and Cold Therapy to Treat Pain

FIASP, MD, MBBS
Pain Management Specialist, Delhi
How to Use Heat and Cold Therapy to Treat Pain

Most diseases, small or big, acute or chronic, accident or infection, have one common factor - pain. In most cases, in addition to reducing the severity of the infection or the impact to various structures from the trauma, managing pain assumes a bigger role. It is only when the pain is controlled can the bigger picture of disease management be done, as the patient would be inconsolable.

To this effect, in addition to pain killers, the most inexpensive and easily available modes of pain management are heat and cold. Though all are not aware, there are specific instances where heat and cold should be used as listed below.

Heat: Some of the common modes to heat therapy include heat pads, warm baths, paraffin wax system, hot water bottles, air-activated heat pack, or warm oils. Heat acts by improving blood circulation and nutritional supply to the body parts and is best suited for stiff joints and muscle soreness. 

Some common ways to heat therapy include:

  1. A warm shower or bath in the morning - this will ease morning stiffness and get you ready for exercise.
  2. Apply a heating pad on the sore/stiff areas for up to 20 minutes - Use optimal, bearable temperature to avoid skin burns.
  3. Wrap the affected area for 15 to 20 minutes with a moist heat pad. A wet towel can be put in the freezer and then warmed up in the microwave. Moist heat pads are also available with local pharmacies.
  4. Warm mineral oils can be applied to the stiff joints of hands and legs. Leave it in place for 15 to 20 minutes before washing it off.
  5. For sore hand and foot joints, warm paraffin wax can be applied using the equipment available at drug stores. This will help ease the pain and soreness. Soak in a warm whirlpool.

Contrary to heat therapy, cold therapy acts by reducing blood flow to the affected area and numbing the nerve endings, thereby reducing the perception of pain. It works well for acute pain cases like fresh injuries and post-exercise inflammation.

  1. A cold wrap with ice cubes can be applied to the painful area for about 15 to 20 minutes. This can be repeated if required after a break.
  2. Alternately, a wet towel can be put in a plastic bag and kept in the freezer for 15 minutes and then used as a cold pack.
  3. The affected joint can be submerged in a container of ice and water.
  4. Cold gel packs are available at stores - these won't leak, will stay cold longer and can be easily wrapped around a joint.

Cryotherapy, as cold therapy is also called, is not as effective as heat therapy, though it does provide immediate relief.

एंजाइना पेक्टोरिस

Associate Bachelor in A A & H S, Diploma in Naturopathy & Yogic Science (DNYS)
Acupressurist, Muzaffarpur
एंजाइना पेक्टोरिस
एंजाइना पेक्टोरिस

परिचय-

एंजाइना पेक्टोरिस के रोग में रोगी ऐंठन का शिकार हो जाता है। इस रोग में शरीर के अंदर खून का संचार कम होने की वजह से रोगी को पूरी तरह आक्सीजन नहीं मिल पाती है।

कारण-

जब रोगी के शरीर की धमनियां एकदम सख्त हो जाती है तब यह रोग पैदा होता है।

लक्षण-

इस रोग की शुरुआत में रोगी की छाती के बीचो-बीच में तेज दर्द होता है। खासतौर पर इस तरह का दर्द व्यायाम के बाद ही होता है। कभी-कभी यह दर्द जबड़े या बांह के ऊपरी भाग में भी चला जाता है। इस रोग में रोगी को काफी घुटन महसूस होती है और उसे ऐसा लगता है कि किसी ने उसकी छाती पर कुछ भारी सामान रख दिया हो। इस रोग की पहचान के लिए रोगी की इलेक्ट्रो-कॉडियोग्राम जांच करानी अच्छी रहती है।

उपचार-

इस रोग के होने पर सबसे पहले रोगी को अपने ब्लड प्रेशर की जांच करा लेनी चाहिए। अगर ब्लड प्रेशर बढ़ा

हुआ तो उसे कंट्रोल करने की कोशिश करनी चाहिए। आपकी लंबाई के हिसाब से अगर आपका वजन ज्यादा हो तो वजन कम करने की कोशिश करनी चाहिए। अगर रोगी धूम्रपान करता हो तो उसे धूम्रपान तुरंत छोड़ देना चाहिए नहीं तो यह खतरनाक हो सकता है।

You need to do intercourse after ovulation rupture also, as once the egg is ruptured and fertilization with sperm happens. conception occurs after ovulation rupture and fertilization with sperm.
