Hello- You can't do anything to diagnose your pregnancy right now as the pregnancy can be diagnosed earliest after 10 days of missed period. You can do urine pregnancy test at home after that. If you got menses in the meanwhile, it will prove that you are not pregnant.

How to Beat Winter Food Cravings

MSc
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Chandigarh
How to Beat Winter Food Cravings



Winters are back…rather partially on the way… Days are shorter, and nights are longer.

When winter hits, cravings for comfort foods increase. And unfortunately, few of us find comfort in sprouts salad or fruits…!

Lets understand why...

Cold weather triggers a self-preservation mode that sends the body a message to heat up fast. And that message is often played out as a craving for carbohydrate-rich foods -- the sugars and starches that provide the instant "heat" boost your body is longing for. Here comes our role…yes, the dietitian’s role…

"If we're not exercising, our appetite increases, and ultimately that means we're eating more and moving less -- and that's a disaster plan for weight gain."

Let me suggest the ways how what we can do to beat the seasonal system...

You can take control. With a little bit of planning, you can keep your life and your appetite in perfect harmony all year long.

Snack healthy.
Eat a high-protein, high-fiber snack between meals whole wheat cracker, cottage cheese or tofu or soy crackers with lot of seasonings like oregano, garlic, ajwain etc Healthy snacking will fuel your body's heat mechanism, helping keep you warmer. The warmer we remain in cold, the less we crave carbs.

Make your activity schedule
Grab a pen to paper and list all the things you did in summer, then write a corresponding list of winter activities you could do. Not only does exercise burn calories, it also affects brain chemicals linked to appetite, so it can help control how much you eat.

Create Low-Calorie Comforts.
If you know you're going to crave those wintry comfort foods, find lower-cal ways to do it. Steamy pizza with veggies and a whole wheat crust, a bowl of vegetable soup, cocoa with non-fat milk -- be creative in cutting calories while keeping the comfort.

Get a Daily Dose of Sunshine Vitamin
If you think your food cravings may be related to shorter days, try to spend at least some time outdoors in sunlight every day

Keep a Lid on Disastrous Winter Foods
Hey please keep out of direct eye view the sinful Ghackas Rewaris and peanuts too, as they rightly say…Out of sight…out of mind..!

Pl see if she has enough hb levels. Give her leafy greens go maximum in diet. Primarily good iron levels will settle the problem. Ayurveda doctors never advise hormonal medicines in the beginning. Primary herbal aartav shuddhi procedure also helps to a great extent.

If your breast feeding your baby it's common in normal as well as c section of. Post delivery lactational amenorrhea it's called. Don't worry .but do test urine for pregnancy test and take contraceptive measures like condom or cu the later after periods. Or else it's common to become pregnant in breast feeding pts. And they don't notice it in same period as many months sometimes don't get periods.

Hi, it is normal for period date to vary for 7-10 days before and after the last date. Although periods may get delayed if you are on any oral contraceptive pills or took some emergency pill. They can also be delayed if there has been any change in diet or exercise or if there has been any stress. Please get a urine pregnancy test done if you don't get the periods in another 3-4 days just to be on the safe side. Thanks.

Dandruff - Causes And Treatment

MBBS, MD - Dermatology , Venereology & Leprosy
Dermatologist, Bangalore
Dandruff - Causes And Treatment

Dandruff is a chronic disorder, which significantly affects the scalp region and is characterized by the appearance of minute white flakes on the scalp. Although dandruff does not cause serious problems, recurrent appearances of dandruff can be embarrassing for the concerned person.

Symptoms

If you spot numerous white flakes repeatedly on the shoulders or on the shoulder region of your shirt and experience severe itching around the scalp, particularly during weather changes, it is likely that you are suffering from dandruff.

Causes

Dandruff might develop due to a lack of proper hair care, side-effects of certain shampoos or hair care products, seborrheic dermatitis (characterized by scaly red coloured patches on one’s scalp), dry or oily skin, eczema, excessive stress, hormonal changes, side effects of serious diseases such as HIV or Parkinson’s disease (a disease of the nervous system that impairs human body mobility) and also cold weather conditions.

Prevention and treatment

You can control dandruff by applying any of the following treatments:

  1. Therapy involving peeling and subsequent strengthening of the scalp might help in the complete elimination of dandruff. The therapy is developed with the help of highly operative anti-fungal ingredients which sanitize the scalp and regulate the growth of the fungi ‘Malassezia’ to a normal level. This helps in the elimination of the intense itchy sensations and the minute white flakes around the region of the scalp. The therapy also aims to provide adequate nourishment to the hair. This therapy helps in the flattening of the dandruff affected hair strands along with the subsequent reinforcement and protection of the hair follicles. If the dandruff is caused due to an oily scalp, this therapy might be useful in the regulation of the unnecessary and excess oil level.
  2. In order to treat dandruff, a therapy aimed at the purification and balancing of the scalp might be helpful. This treatment incorporates a mixture of natural oils which help in the subsequent nourishment of the scalp; the therapy helps your hair to regain its lost vigor.

Further recommendation

Along with the aforementioned therapies, you can also use certain products which might help as well:

1. Anti-dandruff lotions contain a healthy amount of effective ingredients which aim at the removal of the itchy sensation on the scalp along with the subsequent elimination of dandruff.

2. You can also use anti-dandruff shampoos on a regular basis which help to remove dandruff and strengthen the scalp. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

You need to get a Pelvic USG and a hormonal assay done- TSH ,FSH ,LH ,Prolactin to see the reason for delayed periods. For white discharge I would advice you to take Cansoft-CL vaginal pessaries- insert in vagina for 3 consecutive nights and see if it helps.

Stop the natural treatment. See a doctor and she will examine you and then give you treatment accordingly.The itching and burning is due to vaginal infection.

That only girl can tell you as they do not have any secretion to tell that climax is reached and every woman behave differently when they have climax. Climax for women is a feeling and can not be quantified as present or absent.

Most important symptom is missed period. There r other symptoms but all of them appear 2 weeks after the missed period. Those r nausea, vomiting, breast fullness and increased urination. If you have a missed period then you should get urine pregnancy test done at home after 7 days of missed period to confirm it.
