Bleeding during pregnancy can occur because of some little bit detachment of placenta if both you and your baby are fine now then don't worry just follow your doctor's advise and relax.

I have delivered my baby through C-section. My baby has completed 5 months but yet I have not got my periods. I have not been in any relationship with my husband since the time my baby was born, hence there is no issue of pregnancy. I have been breast feeding aIso powdered milk is given. Is there any complications if I didn't get my periods? Also when can I expect my periods.

Even after having intercourse during the time of ovulation i couldnt concieve. What could be the reason

It may so happen because even you practice intercourse in the best time (around ovulation), chance of having pregnancy is only 20-25%, if all the parameters of you and your husband are normal.

Iron Rich Foods For Iron Defficiency Anemia

How much iron do you need?
Iron plays an integral role in the formation of hemoglobin in blood and myoglobin in muscles, both of which carry oxygen to the cells. That's why fatigue and tiredness is the first symptom most people notice when they may be low in iron.

The recommended intake for iron is:

Kids 1-3 years old: 7 mg/day
Kids 4-8 years old: 10 mg/day
Teenagers 9 - 13: 8 mg/day
Teenagers 14 - 18: 11 mg/day for boys & 15 mg/day for girls
Males 19+: 8 mg/day
Females 19-50: 18 mg/day
Females 51+: 8 mg/day
Pregnant females: 27 mg/day

The magic of iron-food pairing

The absorption of non-heme iron can be improved when a source of heme iron is consumed in the same meal. In addition, the iron absorption-enhancing foods can also increase the absorption of non-heme iron. While some food items can enhance iron absorption, some can inhibit or interfere iron absorption. Avoid pairing these iron-inhibiting foods when you're eating iron-rich foods in the same meal.

Iron absorption enhancers:

​Meat/fish/poultry
Fruits: orange, orange juice, cantaloupe, strawberries, grapefruit etc
Vegetables: broccoli, brussels sprouts, tomato, tomato juice, potato, green and red peppers
White wine

Iron absorption inhibitors:

Red wine, coffee and tea
Vegetables: spinach, chard, beet greens, rhubarb and sweet potato
Whole grains and bran
Isolated soy ingredients, like products made with soy flour and isolated soy protein concentrate.

Top 15 Health Benefits Of Fenugreek

Top 15 Health Benefits Of Fenugreek
TOP 15 HEALTH BENEFITS OF FENUGREEK:

Reduces Cholesterol – Fenugreek contains saponins that help reduce the body’s absorption of cholesterol from fatty foods, reduce the body’s production of cholesterol, especially the harmful low density lipoprotein (LDL) levels.

Prevents Diabetes – Fenugreek contains a rare amino acid (4HO-Ile) that has anti-diabetic properties. It enhancing insulin secretion under hyperglycemic conditions (for type 1 diabetes) and increasing insulin sensitivity (for type 2 diabetes). Also galactomannan, a natural soluble fiber, present in fenugreek slows down the rate of sugar absorption into blood.

Protects from Cancer – Fenugreek has estrogenic effects and is a possible alternative to hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Saponins and mucilage in fenugreek bind to toxins in the food and flush them out, thus protecting the mucus membrane of the colon from cancers.

Increases Breast Milk – Herbal tea made of fenugreek seeds contains diosgenin, works as a galactagogue, enhancing breast milk production in lactating mothers, and facilitates infant birth weight regain, in early postnatal days.

Eases Labor Pains: Fenugreek stimulates uterine contractions, reduces labor pain, and eases child birth process.

Ease Women’s Health Complaints: Compounds like diosgenin and isoflavones, with oestrogen-like properties, help reduce menstrual cramps associated with PMS, ease menopausal symptoms like hot flashes and mood fluctuations. Abundance of iron in fenugreek covers up the iron deficiency during adolescence (initiation of menstrual periods), pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Boosts Testosterone Levels – Significant positive effects of fenugreek on physiological aspects of male libido have been noted. It assists in maintaining healthy testosterone levels curing erectile dysfunction.

Aids Digestion – The mucilage in fenugreek seeds is effective against heartburn or acid reflux and soothes gastrointestinal inflammation, relieves indigestion, treats constipation, digestive problems created by stomach ulcers, and coats the stomach and intestinal lining. It also detoxifies the liver.

Helps Weight Loss -This thermogenic herb, with its natural soluble fiber, galactomannan, aids weight loss by suppressing appetite, providing quick energy, and modulating carbohydrate metabolism. It also helps flush out harmful toxins.

For Fever and Sore Throat: Herbal tea (fenugreek, lemon and honey), is used as traditional remedy to replenish the body after a bout of fever. The mucilage in fenugreek soothes cough and sore throat.

Hair Care: Fenugreek contains lecithin that hydrates the hair, reduces the dryness of the hair, cures dandruff, conditions the hair, and treats a variety of scalp issues which makes our hair healthy and strong.

Skin Care: Fenugreek has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties which draws out toxins accumulated underneath the epidermis and tones the outer layers of the skin and is traditionally used as a remedy for eczema, burns, abscesses, gout, skin inflammation, scars, blackheads, pimples, wrinkles, and cystic acne.

Heart Care: Fenugreek seed contains galactomannan (a polysaccharide), that lowers the risks of a heart attack. It is also an excellent source of potassium which counters the action of sodium to help control heart rate and blood pressure.

Pacifies Heartburn and Acidity: Due to the presence of high quantities of mucilage, consumption of fenugreek helps soothe digestive inflammation by coating the lining of our stomach and intestine, curing acid reflux or heartburn.

Nutrient source: Fenugreek seeds are rich source of trigonelline, lysine, l-tryptophan, saponins, fibers, high content of Vitamin A and C, calcium, iron, proteins, carbohydrates and trace minerals.

Menopause occurs in elderly 45-52 years old women when periods stop finally. You are fartoo young for that. It appears your post delivery bleeding is dragging long. That may happen due to subinvolution, infection mainly, very occasionally choriocarcinoma. You need a pelvic usg, blood counts and b hcg and consultation wth a gynae.

What does corpus luteum cyst shows increased peripheral vascular in right ovary means?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
A corpus luteum cyst is a type of ovarian cyst which may rupture about the time of menstruation, and take up to three months to disappear entirely. A corpus luteum cyst rarely occurs at age 50+, because eggs are no longer being produced in menopausal women. Corpus luteum cysts may contain blood and other fluids.

Polycystic ovarian syndrome can be completely cured with homoeopathic medicines. No side effects in homoeopathic medicines. We can prevent further recurrence. Avoid non veg and bakery items. Reduce intake of oily and fatty foods. Drink plenty of water. Daily walk about 45 mins. While taking homoeopathic medicines please avoid coffee and soft drinks for fast and better action of medicines. Nothing to worry.

Pills act as contraception if taken properly and hence prevent pregnancy. If in doubt you can always do a urine pregnancy test. It is very important to normalise your body weight to improve pregnancy outcomes. Please read my health tip on pcos. You might find it useful.

You need to get a USG done to see if you have polycystic ovaries along with a serum TSH, Prolactin, FSH and LH. Depending on these results you will need hormonal pills prescribing.

Hi lybrate-user one of your baby having no heartbeat has died. Blood is going bcos uterus is trying to abort the dead baby. In this case abortion of second baby is also a risk. Your medicines are good. Take adequate rest, no sexual contact, no journey.
