Crina ncr 10 mg taken after 3 day period day but stomach pain some times and not some times for thickened uterus wall.
My friend is 20 years old. After having unprotected sex on April 14, she took Unwanted - 72 pill after four hours. Her periods expected date was 28 April but it's delayed by 19 days. Is there any chance of getting pregnant? Or when she can get her periods because she took pill after 4 hours so it's too early she took pill and doesn't seems having chance of pregnancy but delaying in periods making it difficult to understand. Can you suggest us something on this issue?

Zinc deficiency is one epidemic that people are mostly unaware of. As per the data shared by World Health Organization, around 31% of the world population is suffering from zinc deficiency. The problem is also ranked 5th in the leading factors that cause several diseases. It is also a primary reason why underdeveloped nations suffer from high mortality rate as zinc deficiency is associated with child pneumonia and diarrhea.
Every person, young or old, needs to have a regular intake of zinc for a healthy life, which it is known as an essential nutrient. It is also present in every cell, tissue, bone and fluid in the human body; zinc is especially prevalent in male semen and prostate glands.
Common Symptoms Of Zinc Deficiency
Unfortunately, millions of people suffering from zinc deficiency are unaware of their condition. However, looking out for certain key indicators can help in identifying the problem before it becomes severe. Here are the common symptoms of zinc deficiency that everyone must look out for:
- Poor Neurological Function- Zinc is an absolute necessity for neuropsychologic performance and growth. Low levels of zinc lead to attention disorders in infants, which may persist till the adulthood. But, it doesn’t mean you will start pumping your kids with an overdose of zinc. It has been found that zinc is absorbed best with other nutrients and especially when taken with whole foods.
- Weak Immunity- Your immune function works best when it has an adequate amount of zinc. It is vital for the growth of T-Cell and differentiating white blood cells to keep diseases at bay. Zinc is also necessary for the structural component of the hormone receptors. They contribute exponentially to have a healthy and balanced immune function.
- Diarrhea & Leaky Gut- Impaired immunity causes zinc deficiency diarrhea, which can become a persistent health problem. Every year diarrhea affects nearly 2 million children worldwide, and most of them are suspected to have a zinc deficiency and bacterial infection. Leaky gut, also called intestinal permeability can lead to a slew of health problems like skin allergies, thyroid problems, and nutrient malabsorption.
Zinc Rich Foods You Must Include In Your Diet
If you are experiencing any of the symptoms shared above, then you might be suffering from the zinc deficiency. To improve the level of zinc in your body, you can either take all natural zinc supplements. But, supplements usually contain several forms of zinc like zinc sulfate, zinc acetate and more. Thus, it is better to include the below-shared foods in your diet, which contain a high amount of zinc:
Any ailment can cause a breakdown of one's overall well-being due to the onslaught of related symptoms, and sinus problem is no different. Sinusitis refers to inflammation or swelling of the tissue that lines the sinus, which are passages filled with air and lie in the nasal tract.
Sometimes, these passages get blocked with germs, fluid and other elements that can give rise to infections and allergic reactions. Here are the ways in which this condition can affect your health:
- Related ailments: One of the most common outcomes of sinus blockage is common cold, which can happen when the passages do not get proper movement of air. Further, it can also cause allergic rhinitis which is also known as hay fever and comes with its own set of symptoms like a runny nose, blocked nose and ears, watery eyes and other signs. A build-up of nasal polyps can also take place in the blocked path of the sinus, while the nasal cavity can also shift, causing a deviated septum.
- Pain: We have many sinuses that are located in various parts of our head, including the areas above and below the eyes. As a part of the sinus attack, one may experience pain and fluid fullness in these areas. These regions can ache when there is a sinus infection. This pain can also be caused by the dull pressure exerted by inflammation, and the pain can then travel down to jaws, teeth and even between eyes.
- Headaches: The constant pressure and persistent pain in the various areas containing the sinus can lead to long term headaches which will be at their worst in the mornings. This is due to the fact that the fluids have been accumulating throughout the night. These headaches can get worse if there is a change in the temperature.
- Congestion: Congestion is also a common symptom of sinus infection. The swollen sinuses can lead to constrictions in the nasal passage, which can obstruct normal breathing. This will lead to congestion, which can also affect the senses of taste and smell.
- Cough and discharge: A patient suffering from a sinus infection may end up blowing his or her nose more often than normal. This will usually happen because a yellowing greenish discharge will drain into the nasal passages on a regular basis during the infection. When this discharge bypasses the nasal tract and reaches the throat, it can also cause persistent coughing. It is best to ask for medical intervention and practice steaming to relive the painful symptoms of this condition.
You have probably heard of the gemstone hematite, it means bloodstone in Latin, and the word heme means blood in Greek, thus giving rise to hematology or the study of blood. But hematology is more inclusive than that because it also concerns itself with the study of organs that form blood and diseases that plague blood. One such deadly disease is leukemia i.e. cancer of the blood cells.
Most leukemia patients are adults, thus negating the popular conception that the blood cancer only affects the young. The average patient is an elderly white male. Leukemia occurs when the white blood cells in a person’s blood multiply exponentially and begin to crowd out the resources that red blood cells and platelets need to function - these cells become dysfunctional and die as a result. The result is a sick and weak body which is deprived of the red blood cells and platelets necessary to be functional, and a greatly elevated level of dysfunctional white blood cells which are not capable of protecting the body from invasive diseases.
A person’s bone marrow can overproduce two types of white blood cells, thus leading to two types of Leukemia: lymphoid and myeloid. Because these cells are overproduced, they are incapable of protecting the body from disease and infection. The result is multiple organ failures because the few remaining red blood cells and platelets are unable to supply oxygen and other vital nutrients to organs, and they are unable to carry away toxic waste and carbon dioxide gas. People with Leukemia are more prone to uncontrolled bleeding and bruising because they lack the platelets needed for the blood to efficiently clot. People with Leukemia tend to become anemic because they don’t have enough red blood cells (which carry the iron their body needs to survive.)
A person can have one of two types of Leukemia i.e acute or chronic.
- Acute Leukemia is an aggressive cancer because most of the increased, immature white blood cells are dysfunctional and are unable to protect the body from opportunistic diseases and infections.
- Chronic Leukemia is less severe and serious because only some of the increased and immature white blood cells are dysfunctional - this means that they can protect the body better and that there are more red blood cells and platelets that allow the body to function.
While it is unknown what the causes of Leukemia are, people with cancer tend to have certain abnormal chromosomes, which do not cause cancer. While there is no magic bullet to prevent a person from getting Leukemia, not smoking, and avoiding radiation, and exposure to certain chemicals seems to help. Cancer tends to be genetic as well.
Leukemia can be treated in the following ways:
With chemotherapy, medicines are used to kill the cancerous cells in the blood and bone marrow. Radiation is targeted to a specific part of the body where cancer has grown in excess, and either kills or retards the growth of these cells. Biological therapy uses certain medicines to strengthen the immune system to fight and kill off the cancerous cells.
Targeted therapy blocks growth of the genes and/or proteins that leukemia cells need to grow through various medicines. Stem cells transplant is a new technology which replaces leukemia producing cells in bone marrow and the body with ones that make normal blood cells. Recipients get initial high doses of chemotherapy to kill off leukemia producing cells, and then they get an intravenous infusion of new stem cells. The idea is to flood the body with cells that produce healthy blood cells, platelets, and plasma. People can have their spleen removed if it is cancerous and affecting the function of other organs.
While there is no one magic bullet for understanding leukemia because it is a very complex cancer, new research is allowing scientists, medical researchers, and doctors to better treat leukemia patients.
