I know the days on which we should have sex to conceive. But should we try every day or should we have gaps of 2-3 days for the sperm volume to go up? Any foods the wife should avoid? Any tips and precautions during sex?

The gap is needed when we advise semen analysis. The gap is not needed when you are trying for a baby (as you already know the timing). Avoid alcohol, smoking and excessive caffeine and also very high heat should be avoided. No special precautions are needed except that you must avoid using any lubricants.

Super Fact of the Day: Love is indeed a drug!

Super Fact of the Day: Love is indeed a drug!
You must have often wondered why being in love causes you to lose appetite and sleep? well apparently, the human brain when in love, releases the same neurotransmitters and hormones that are released while consuming amphetamines (illegal drugs used as mood stimulants). This causes intense feelings of excitement and loss of hunger and sleep, especially when the cupid hits you with his arrow!

Would you like to share this interesting fact with family or friends? go ahead and share!

Three months is a short time span, so need not to worry as all your reports are fine. So for nor try conceiving during your wife's fertile period, still if you don't get a positive result in next 5-6 months, then consult infertility specialist for help or medication.

Yes it is safe. Minimum requirement is 400 mcg but there is tablet with that strength. You can take becosules safely. Other preparations have 5 mg of folic acid which should be combined with vit b12.

Hi lybrate-user. The day menstruation begins is counted as the first day of cycle. By this calculation, the period of fertility extends from the 8th -22 nd day of the cycle. And 10th - 16 th day is the period of greatest fertility as ovulation is generally on 14th day. Since you had an ectopic pregnancy in may, I feel you should wait for 3 months to recuperate and then try for conception. If you want any further clarification, please get back to me.

Hi lybrate user, it could be ovarian mass or cyst with increased vascularity that could give you symptoms like feeling of heart beat. Please get a pelvic ultrasound done to rule out any mass in pelvis. Control your blood sugar levels strictly before planning for baby as raised sugars may give rise to defects in baby.

Seems a lot needs to be checked in your case, joint pains could be due to lack of calcium vit d or low hb, upset periods could be due to some harmonal imbalance, you need a complete harmonal profile done, headache could be also due to all these issues, you may get your tests done and get back again for advise.

Sitting posture while driving

Fellowship in Neurological Rehabilitation, BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist, Gurgaon
Sitting posture while driving
Hello,

I constantly try to educate patients on proper posture, but because people (myself included) spend so much time driving and sitting for prolonged periods of time. Driving can mean different for different people. It may be a way of leisure for some or as an everyday activity to commute to office. Driving for long time has always accompanied with some or the other musculoskeletal problems. It become a leading cause of back pain to our fast pace life.The problem is treated but the root cause of it is never looked after or we just don't bother about it much..

Why we get the pain or associated problems when we drive for long time?

Poor posture while driving can produce a repetitive load to the tissues that causes sustained stress. Daily prolonged drives apply loads to the spine that can cause viscoelastic tissues to slowly deform and creep. Simply staying in the car seat with poor posture long enough will eventually ensure damage. Sustained load and resultant deformation/creep causes a progressive reduction in tissue strength.With your hands in the proper position on the steering wheel, the thoracic spine, scapula and shoulder joint have a better chance of remaining in neutral. usually, we hold steering wheel with one hand and lean to other side.due to leaning hip bone( iliac crest) and 12th rib approximate; this will contribute to shortness (tightness) of the quadratus lumborum or latissimus dorsi

If the pelvis is rotated, it will contribute to lumbar or SI pathology and overactivity of the TFL(muscle). If the knees are even slightly superior to the hips, then there will be hip flexors muscles over activity or shortness, and hip extensor inhibition or weakness. Prolonged sitting on the glutes can cause poor circulation and lack of oxygen to the tissue, contributing to inhibition.

A person driving with a clutch who has poor or limited ankle dorsiflexion (like after ankle fracture) can perpetuate overly active hip flexors because they will pull the foot off the clutch using the hip flexors, instead of dorsiflexion at the ankle.

Some Do’s:
1) Select a car that matches your height and suits your work.
2) Change posture as much as possible take frequent Microbreaks ,recommended atleast 15 minutes, every 2 hours
3) Place hand on steering wheels so that elbows are close to your side and not so high that you have to reach up for the wheel.
4) Place hands at 3 o’clock or 9 o’clock position this will reduce the amount of strain on shoulders and put hands in safer position.
5) It is advisable to keep two hands in steering wheel except while shifting gears. Change hand posture frequently to reduce fatigue and improve circulation.
6) Learn Microbreaks: An example of a "microbreak" for driving in the car is squeezing the shoulder blades together for 20-30 seconds and repeating 2-3 times. Repeating anterior and posterior pelvic tilts and lateral tilts for a minute or two is sometimes helpful. Other microbreaks for driving include cervical range of motion, and shoulder retraction with elevation and depression.
Some Dont’s:
1) Avoid lifting after driving long hours because your muscles are tired your ligaments are stretched and disc are at risk of injury, give yourself some time to stretch and relax.
2) The death grip posture, the one arm cool dude” the Wrist resting at 12 o’clock position on steering wheel and fingers flop over the top, arm straight out in front and one arm propped on your window.


The longest journey begins with a right sitting posture, not with a turn of the ignition key !!!! dive safe

Allergies - How Ayurveda Can Help You Treat Them?

Allergies - How Ayurveda Can Help You Treat Them?

One of the most revered modes of healing, Ayurveda is entrusted with various beneficial properties that cures a wide range of ailments. Quintessential and indigenous methods of probing into the medicinal virtues of various herbs and other natural condiments, Ayurveda is attributed with remedial qualities for a number of ailments and all this without ushering any side effect whatsoever. 

One of the most frequent use of Ayurveda is found in healing allergies. Ayurveda over the centuries has emerged as a trusted recourse to take while combating an allergy. One needs to dig out the best therapies that Ayurveda has to offer in order to get rid of the stubborn annoyances that most allergies posit.

Inherent allergies
Certain people are born with lesser or nil tolerance towards certain specific particles in their immediate surroundings. On account of certain genetic predisposition, some are prone to react adversely to a few allergens. In the Ayurveda vocabulary, such a condition is designed to be caused by unstable influences. These influences may be in the form of environmental elements like dust and pollens or certain specific kinds of food items. 

While the most obvious solution might be to avoid the source of such allergies, in case where the interaction with the given set of allergens is unavoidable, Ayurveda offers viable solutions. Depending on whether the reaction is mild or chronic, Ayurveda prescribes specific cure Some of the mild symptoms in these cases are sneezing, coughing, conspicuous marks, rashes, watering of nose and eyes among others. For such allergies, one of the most effective Ayurvedic  remedies would be a mixture of beetroot, carrot and cucumber juice. Regular intake builds immunity and resistance power and thus, reduces the effect of such allergic reactions.

Acquired allergies
Unlike the natural allergies, certain allergies develop as the individual ages. These may be seasonal or procured sensitivities and these usually manifest certain stronger reactions. Most of the time, such allergies, known as amanita in Ayurveda terms, are associated with indigestion and imbalance in the digestive juices or dysfunction of the digestive organs. To deal with such anomalies, detoxing the body is essential. The first step to cure would be to detox the body of the allergy causing toxins. 

An easy and natural remedy would blending honey and lemon in lukewarm water and drinking it regularly for a prolonged period of time. This also has additional advantages for the skin and the overall organ system. Alma based drinks or tablets could also prove beneficial to abate such acquired allergies.

I would advise you to see a Gynaecologist as it is not very clear what your question is. If you are meaning to say that you have taken I-pill and have fallen pregnant and want to continue it should be usually okay but you will need a few tests doing and counselled regarding small unpredictable risk to baby.

Best contraceptive is oral contraceptive pills like novelon, to be taken for 21 days in a month. If has maximum efficacy. If you do not want to take any tablets then copper t is the next best option for u, once you put it and forget it. No need to take tablets every day. There is no such pill that is once in a month. Injection dmpa is there once in 3 months, but it causes lots of irregular menses. B-gap tablet is herbal medicine and has not been tested for its efficacy and that's why it is not recommended by who (world health organization).

Safer Sex

Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery (B.U.M.S)
Sexologist, Chennai
Safer Sex
Safer Sex

Safer sex at a glance:
Safer sex is anything you do to lower the chance of giving or getting STDs.
Waiting to have sex, using condoms, and getting tested regularly for STDs makes sex safer.
There’s no such thing as sex that’s 100% safe. That’s why we call it safer, not safe.

What’s safer sex?
"Safer sex" is anything we do to lower the risk of getting STDs or giving others STDs .

No kind of sex with another person is guaranteed to be 100 percent safe: Since STDs don't always have symptoms, people don't always know they have them. And pregnancy can happen even if you use birth control.

But not all kinds of sex have the same risks. Vaginal and anal sex are the most likely to spread STDs, oral sex is less likely, and things like kissing, mutual masturbation, and outercourse (AKA dry humping) are even safer. Here are ways to have safer sex:

For vaginal sex, use birth control and condoms
For anal sex, use condoms and lubricant
For oral sex, use a condom to cover the penis or a Sheer Glyde dam, cut-open condom, or plastic wrap to cover the vulva or anus
Get tested for STDs

Do I need to use a condom if I’m on birth control?

Even if you're using birth control, use condoms every time you have sex to protect yourself from STDs. Many women who take birth control (like the pill) also use condoms, because only condoms protect against STDs — the pill and other kinds of birth control do not.

The other reason to use condoms even if you're on birth control is for extra pregnancy protection, because condoms also prevent pregnancy! No birth control method is 100% effective, so adding condoms to the mix increases your protection.

Bottom line: if you decide to have vaginal sex, condoms + birth control = the best way to prevent pregnancy and STDs.

Can I get an STD from someone who’s never had sex?

It's very unlikely — but still possible — to get STDs from someone who's never had any kind of sex. Some people, for example, are born with HIV, which they can pass to other people later in life when they have sex. People can also pick up herpes through casual kissing — even from friends and family. Their herpes infections can then be passed on sexually, but this is also pretty unlikely.

The chance of this happening is small, so don't worry about it too much. On the other hand, it's another one of the many good reasons to always use condoms when you have sex.

Keep in mind that some STDs can be passed through oral sex, and some can be passed by genital skin-to-skin contact. So you need to ask people you have sex with questions like "What kinds of sex have you had? When was the last time you were tested? Do you always use protection?" But no matter what they say, using protection is always the safest bet.
