It can be due to hormonal imbalance because it is only for the first time. Are you taking any birth control pill? .Everyone’s menstrual cycle is a little different. However, an average cycle is around three to seven days long. During this time, the amount of fluid you expel from your body is anywhere from 30 to 80 ml on average. If you notice that your cycle is lasting less than two days or is lighter than 30 ml than causes are hormonal imbalance, thyroid problem, underweight, stressed, birth control pill, pcod. Please go to a gynaecologist for check up.

If you had unprotected sex than need to rule out pregnancy. Best way to know pregnancy is to do urine pregnancy test, if you miss your period for a week. However if you are not sexual active than nothing to worry. Just consult your gynaecologist. She will give hormonal pills and you will get your periods in a week.

You can become pregnanct only if you have had sex in the last month. So if you have had sex, and have missed your period, do a urine pregnancy test on a monring sample of urine in a lab and see if it is negative then the cause of your menses delay is pcod. Menstrual cycles occur due to a complex interaction between the hormones released from the brain with the effect they have on the ovaries and uterus. Menstrual cycle length can be changed by thoughts, and some emotional events like exams, stressful events, birth, death in family etc you have been suspected to have pcod and this is a very common finding nowadays. Pcod is not an unsurmountable disease, and it can be helped with medicines and some lifestyle modification. During pcod the body's chemical capacity to utilise glucose is altered, and hence there is a cascade of events like weight gain, irregular menses, acne and darkening of skin etc. Weight gain is crucial factor. You have been experiencing weight gain too. The best way to curb this disease is to control weight using a multi modal approach like - diet -exercise - medicines. So visit a good dietician and chart out a healthy diet, do regular cardiovascular exercises which help in burning the excess fat thats accumulated as excess weight in body. If your weight goes down by even 5 kg, you will experience a good regularisation of your menstrual cycle on it's own, without resorting to any medications. Of course we can give medicines to help patients with pcod, like the ones you have taken, but they are not the only factor that can regulate this disease. Life style modification is the cornerstone in management of pcod.

Health Benefits of Rajma

MD - General Medicine
Sexologist, Delhi
Health Benefits of Rajma

Rajma-chawal, red kidney beans are used extensively all over the globe.They are called 'kidney beans' due to their shape which resembles the human kidney. They are one of the tastiest beans and belong to lentils food group. Red kidney beans are known as 'rajma' in India and they form an important part of a vegetarian diet due to their excellent protein content. But the protein they contain is incomplete and they should always be paired with a cereal (carbohydrate) to improve their biological value, in other words, improve the quality of protein.

Nutrition in rajma (Nutritive value per 100g)

Energy - 340 kcals
Protein - 24g
Carbohydrates - 56g
Fat - 1g
Magnesium - 184 mg

Let's have a look at the health benefits of red kidney beans:

Prevents diabetes


Red kidney beans fall into the category of low glycemic index foods and they do not spike the blood glucose levels post meal in diabetics. In other words, they raise the blood glucose levels very slowly. Also, they contain good quality carbohydrates and lean protein which makes them a healthy option. And the cherry on the cake is that they are low in fat too. Also, the two amino acids which regulate insulin levels - arginine and leucine are present abundantly in red kidney beans.

Lowers cholesterol levels

Rajma is a tremendous source of soluble fibre which helps lower cholesterol levels. Soluble fibre forms a gel when it comes in contact with the stomach contents and this binds the cholesterol and prevents its re-absorption back into the system, thus lowering blood cholesterol levels.

Prevents hypertension

Nutritious red kidney beans are also a very good source of potassium and magnesium along with soluble fibre and protein which helps maintain blood pressure within normal range and protects the overall heart health. Potassium and magnesium dilate the blood vessels and arteries thus assuring smooth blood flow.

Help lose weight

These fibre rich beans when consumed, occupy a lot of space in the stomach thus providing a feeling of fullness for a longer period of time and they are low in fat too. This makes it an appropriate pre-workout option as it will provide sustained energy throughout.

Strengthens the immune system

The health benefits of rajma are not just limited to its fibre and protein content as it is full of antioxidants too. These antioxidants boost our immune system and protect it from the harmful effects of free radicals by scavenging them and limiting the damage. Antioxidants are also believed to have anti-ageing properties.

Combine rajma with vegetables in the form of salads or soups to make it more nutritious. Eating red kidney beans every day can become boring or monotonous, here is another interesting way to incorporate it into your daily diet: Red kidney bean flour/powdered beans can be added to wheat flour to make more nutritious chapattis or Indian flat bread, khakra, wraps, chilas, dosas, pancakes, etc.

 

Struggling to Get Pregnant - What's the Right Time to Visit Your Doctor?

Struggling to Get Pregnant - What's the Right Time to Visit Your Doctor?

The news of pregnancy can be one of the best news in a couple’s lifetime. However, where this news does not arrive, it can turn very stressful. Whatever the reasons, if a couple has been trying to have a baby and are not able to, it can be very strenuous. However, statistics reveal that most couples take four to six months to conceive. Some couples even take up to two years.

Lifestyles are changing and there are a lot of factors, which determine the ability of a couple to conceive. There could be issues with either of the couple, and sometimes it might not even be an actual issue, but only psychological barriers hampering the health of the relationship.

Some common conditions that can contribute to the couple not conceiving include endometriosis, ovarian issues, polycystic ovaries, hormonal imbalances, medical illnesses, etc. A few common remedies can be tried first, before reaching out for professional help.

  1. Using lubricants without spermicide topical agents may be used, but some of them could contain chemicals, which are spermicides and reduce the sperm count. This needs to be ruled out before investigating the cause for infertility.
  2. Vitamin B6 helps in the luteal phase, which is from the time of ovulation to menstruation. Zinc also plays a vital role in pregnancy and conception, and so it is advisable to take these supplements when trying to get pregnant.
  3. Weight management, quit smoking, improved hydration, general detoxification, dietary changes, adequate hours of sleep are some changes that can immensely benefit.
  4. An ovulation predictor kit and trying to conceive around that time also increases chances of conception.
  5. For a woman who is 35 years or younger, conception should happen in about four to six months’ time. If not, it is time to see a doctor to see what is preventing pregnancy.

Some of the other conditions, which would require a visit to the doctor are as follows:

  1. Consumption of regular asthma medications
  2. Diabetic patients
  3. Epilepsy patients
  4. Chronic smoker
  5. Underweight or overweight women
  6. Diagnosed endometriosis
  7. History of polycystic ovaries
  8. Fibroids
  9. History of irregular periods or other menstrual disorders
  10. History of thyroid disease, especially hypothyroidism, which is one of the main contributing reasons for infertility. Quite often, treating the thyroid levels can lead to pregnancy
  11. History of sexually transmitted disease like chlamydia
  12. History of sexual hormonal imbalance
  13. History of prolonged use of birth control pills

If there is no underlying medical issue, it will happen, don’t be anxious. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

If a girl is pregnant. What are the symptoms and what should she do to avoid that pregnancy.
Dear lybrate-user pregnancy symptoms are many as early morning sickness frequency of urination frequent mood changes heaviness in breast and many more but you can not make a diagnosis depending upon these symptoms. For that the best way is to take a pregnancy test. And if a girl is pregnant then you can not avoid pregnancy but the only way out for unwanted pregnancy is to discontinue it. For any of the above things you will have to consult a gynaecologist.

Virya Badhane Ke Gharelu Upay Hindi Me - वीर्य बढ़ाने के घरेलू उपाय

कम शुक्राणु की संख्या पुरुष की एक सामान्य समस्या है और गर्भाधान में कठिनाई का कारण बनती है। कम शुक्राणु की संख्या एक अवस्था है जिसे ओलिगोस्पर्मिया कहा जाता है। यह ऐसी स्थिति है जिसमें शुक्राणु की मात्रा 15 मिलियन शुक्राणु प्रति एम.एल से कम हो जाती है। यदि वीर्य के नमूने में कोई शुक्राणु नहीं हैं, तो स्थिति को एजोस्पर्मिया कहा जाता है। 
अपर्याप्त शुक्राणु उत्पादन और गुणवत्ता पुरुष बांझपन के लिए सबसे आम कारणों में से एक है। लगभग 15 प्रतिशत जोड़ों ने गर्भाधान समस्याओं का अनुभव किया है, और यह प्रतिशत बढ़ रहा है। 
कम शुक्राणु का कारण क्या है?
कभी-कभी एक आंतरिक कारक, जैसे कि वैरिकोसेले, शुक्राणुओं की संख्या कम कर सकता है। लेकिन धूम्रपान, नशीली दवाओं के उपयोग, खराब भोजन और व्यायाम की कमी जैसे कई बाहरी कारक हैं जो शुक्राणुओं की संख्या को कम कर सकते हैं। कुछ बाहरी कारक जो आपके शुक्राणुओं को प्रभावित कर सकते हैं:
- सामान्य शुक्राणु उत्पादन पर गर्मी का एक हानिकारक प्रभाव हो सकता है। सौना या गर्म टब के लगातार उपयोग, लंबे घंटों तक बैठना, टाइट अंडरवियर, मोटापा आदि अंडकोष के तापमान को बढ़ा सकते हैं।
- अत्यधिक धूम्रपान और शराब पीने से भी शुक्राणुओं की संख्या कम हो सकती है।
- हार्मोन संतुलन पर तनाव का एक बड़ा प्रभाव हो सकता है जो बदले में शुक्राणु उत्पादन को प्रभावित कर सकता है।
- अत्यधिक संसाधित सोया खाद्य पदार्थ (सोया दूध, सोया बर्गर, आदि) में आइसोफ्लावान्स की केंद्रित मात्रा होती है, टेस्टोस्टेरोन के लिए आवश्यक एस्ट्रोजेन रिसेप्टर साइटों को ब्लॉक करने वाला एक फाईटोस्ट्रोजन।
- यहां तक कि विद्युतचुंबकीय आवृत्तियों और रेडियो आवृत्ति तरंगों से शुक्राणुओं की संख्या में कमी आ सकती है
शुक्राणुओं की संख्या बढ़ाने के लिए घरेलू उपचार
विभिन्न प्राकृतिक उपचार और अन्य युक्तियां आपके शुक्राणुओं की संख्या बढ़ाने और शुक्राणु की गुणवत्ता में सुधार करने में सहायता कर सकती हैं।
1. माका रूट:
काला किस्म का माका मूल शुक्राणु उत्पादन और गतिशीलता को बेहतर बनाने में मदद कर सकता है। माका की नियमित खपत से कामेच्छा, मौखिक मात्रा और स्खलन प्रति शुक्राणुओं की संख्या में वृद्धि, और शुक्राणु गतिशीलता में सुधार देखा गया है। कुछ महीने तक इस जड़ी बूटी के 1 से 3 चम्मच दिन में दो बार लें।
2. अश्वगंधा:
अश्वगंधा जड़ अर्क शुक्राणुओं की संख्या, वीर्य की मात्रा और शुक्राणु गतिशीलता को काफी बढ़ा सकते हैं। अश्वगंधा संपूर्ण हार्मोनल संतुलन के लिए अंतःस्रावी प्रणाली का समर्थन करता है। यह आपके समग्र स्वास्थ्य में सुधार लाता है, जीवन शक्ति को बढ़ाता है और तनाव और चिंता को कम करता है। गर्म दूध के गिलास में अश्वगंधा पाउडर का आधा चम्मच मिलाएं। कुछ महीनों के लिए इसे दिन में दो बार पिएं।
3. लहसुन:
लहसुन एक प्राकृतिक कामोद्दीपक के रूप में कार्य करता है और शुक्राणु उत्पादन बढ़ाता है। इसमें एलिसिन नामक यौगिक शामिल है, जिससे शुक्राणुओं की धीरज को बढ़ाया जाता है और रक्त परिसंचरण में भी सुधार होता है। इसके अलावा, लहसुन में खनिज सेलेनियम शुक्राणु गतिशीलता को बेहतर बनाने में मदद करता है। बस अपने दैनिक आहार में 1 या 2 लहसुन के टुकड़े शामिल करें।
4. ट्रायबुलस:
ट्रायबुलस टेरेस्ट्रिस शुक्राणु स्वास्थ्य के लिए एक आयुर्वेदिक उपाय है। यह सेक्स हार्मोन उत्पादन को सहायता करने, पुरुषों में ल्यूटिनकारी हार्मोन (एल.एच), डी.एच.ई.ए और टेस्टोस्टेरोन का उत्पादन बढ़ाने में प्रभावी है। इसके उपयोग के बारे मे अपने चिकित्सक से सलाह लें।
5. व्यायाम:
नियमित व्यायाम और एक स्वस्थ आहार सामान्य स्तर पर शरीर के वजन को बनाए रख कर और तनाव और चिंता से राहत दे कर, प्रजनन क्षमता को बढ़ाता है। लेकिन ध्यान रखें कि अत्यधिक मात्रा में व्यायाम (जैसे मैराथन और संबंधित प्रशिक्षण) बांझपन का कारण हो सकता है क्योंकि यह महिलाओं में रजोरोध (माहवारी का अभाव) और पुरुषों में कम शुक्राणुओं की संख्या को जन्म दे सकता है। 
6. एक स्वस्थ आहार योजना को अपनाना:
यौन स्वास्थ्य में सुधार के लिए उचित आहार आवश्यक है। भरपूर ताजे फल, सब्जियां, साबुत अनाज और फलियां लेने से उर्वरता को बढ़ाने में मदद मिल सकती है। परिष्कृत कार्बोहाइड्रेट, कॉफी, चाय, और कृत्रिम योजक के साथ खाद्य पदार्थ आदि से बचने की भी कोशिश करें। 
7. तंग अंडरवियर पहनना बंद करें:
जैसा कि पहले उल्लेख किया गया है, तंग अंडरगैरमेंट जो आपके शरीर के करीब अंडकोष को पकड़ते हैं, वह उनका तापमान बढ़ा सकते हैं और शुक्राणुओं की संख्या और गुणवत्ता को प्रभावित कर सकते हैं।

Dealing With The Phobia Of Genetic Sexual Attraction

Dealing With The Phobia Of Genetic Sexual Attraction

In the realm of sexual relations, Incest is one of the longing social taboos. In order to curb this social taboo, many governments have introduced law banning incest. Basically, this is a sexual relationship between those who are blood-related, which is also called as Consanguineous relationship. This is also called as Genetic Sexual Attraction (GSA) which can be between siblings, half siblings, donor children, adoptees, biological mother and father, nephew and so on. This is a social evil, and experts have some remedies so that you can deal with genetic sexual attraction.

Causes:

According to an article published in Spanish Magazine AFIN in July 2013, separation of siblings for quite a long time is one of the known causes for genetic sexual attraction. At the same time, the magazine points out that there are instances that even those who are not separated have this mania of genetic sexual attraction. Some of the other interesting aspects of GSA can be explained as follows:

  1. It is said that children who grow in close proximity since their childhood develop reverse sexual attitude or imprinting with their siblings, parents and with other consanguineous relationships. This reverse sexual attitude actually suppresses sexual desire with consanguineous relationship. This theory is also called as Westermarck Effect. This can be the pointer to the question How to deal with Genetic Sexual Attraction because consanguineous relationship separated for years may not have the Westermarck Effect.

  2. It is pointed out that when siblings who are separated for long duration of time are sexually mature when they meet each other. In other words, they were not members of the nuclear family, and this long absence can attract each other for a closer relationship. In addition to this, the siblings are biologically and mentally so grown up that they have made their own hard imprint of their character, taste and so on. It is a combination of these factors that makes them an exception to the Westermarck effect.

Symptoms of GSA:

Extreme awareness about the other person, hard desire to stay or talk, distractible behavior, unnecessary talking, holding hands or touching or making use of every opportunity to have some kind of physical contact, daydreaming are some of the known symptoms of GSA.

Remedy Available:

One of the ideal remedies for those suffering from GSA is to seek help of appropriate medical fraternity in the earliest possible time. This is one of the most ideal approaches to deal with genetic sexual attraction. It is also suggested that you should ensure that the siblings meet at regular intervals. This can help the siblings to have Westermarck Effect. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Quality of sperms of husband needs to be improved and in your case, implantation support must be given. Both of these things can be easily done with ayurvedic tablets. So issue of egg donor doesn't arise. Don't be confused. Just let me know age, height, weight of both of you so as to arrive at perfect prescription. Regards Dr. Omkar shahapurkar

Hello, As the intercourse was protected and you had your menses on time, pregnancy is unlikely and scanty menses can be stress induced, which is common.
