Recanalisation of fallopian tubes is a very tricky surgery even in the best of hands. Even if the recanalisation is successful it does not guarantee a pregnancy. It may even lead to complications like ectopic pregnancy that is pregnancy in the tubes .secondly you will need to check your ovarian reserve by certain tests and husbands semen analysis as well. When you have already 3 children I personally would not advise you to go through all this. IVF may be a better option. If at all.

Counting 1st day of periods as day 1, day 7-17 is the fertile period when a woman generally ovulates and pregnancy may occur on sex. But chance ovulation may occur before and after that too, so this is not a very sureshot method of contraception either.

What Does 3 Cigarettes a Day Do to You?

Smoking can cause irreparable damage to your mind and body. Chemicals in the tobacco travel to all parts of the body, leaving no area unaffected. According to available data, smoking causes 30% of all cancer deaths and about 80% deaths from emphysema and bronchitis. In addition to adversely affecting yourself, smoking also has a severe impact on your near and dear ones. According to WHO, about 600,000 people die every year from passive smoking. Out of the deaths that occur due to this, 1/3rd is that of children.

The Indian situation
While 85% of tobacco users worldwide consume it in the form of cigarettes, in India only 13% use it in that form. Additionally, 54% use it in the form of beedis. A study conducted on Indian smokers has revealed that an average of 8.2 cigarettes is smoked by an individual daily.

The study also revealed that the number of cigarettes smoked every year had grown to over 6 trillion. While 1 out of 10 adults dies from tobacco use worldwide, 5% of deaths in women and 20% of deaths in men in India are caused by cigarette and beedi smoking.

What happens when you smoke?
Cigarette smoke is made up of 4000 chemicals that are present either as tiny particles or gases and about 50 are known to lead to cancer, the toxin nicotine being one of them. In addition to nicotine, the chemicals that make up cigarette smoke also include tar and carbon monoxide. Prolonged exposure to these toxins can hamper your body's ability to filter air and clean the lungs. The smoke not only irritates the lungs but also causes excess production of mucus.

It also causes a paralysis of the tiny hair-like structures like cilia that line the airways and are responsible for removing dust and dirt from the organ. Paralysis of these hair-like structures also causes a buildup of mucus and toxic substances, leading to lung congestion. The extra mucus that is produced causes smokers to suffer from the very ubiquitous smoker's cough and chronic bronchitis.

It's also one of the many triggers of asthma, which brings about the narrowing and inflammation of the airways. Long-term exposure to tobacco smoke causes the destruction of the structure of the lung, walls of the airways as well as lung tissue. The result is a condition known as emphysema. Additionally, smoking also leads to cancer of the lung and over 80% lung cancer cases occur due to this habit.

PREGNANCY STRETCH MARKS

Pregnancy stretch marks

Stretch marks are narrow pink or purplish streak-like lines that can develop on the surface of the skin. They're also known as stria or striae. If you get them, they usually appear on your tummy, or sometimes on your upper thighs and breasts as your pregnancy progresses. The first sign you notice might be itchiness around an area where the skin is becoming thin and pink.

What causes stretch marks?

Stretch marks are very common in the general population and don't just affect pregnant women. They can happen whenever the skin is stretched. For example, when we're growing during puberty or when putting on or losing weight, but hormonal changes in pregnancy can affect your skin and make you more likely to get stretch marks.

Whether or not you get stretch marks depends on your skin type, as some people's skin is more elastic. After your baby is born, the marks should gradually fade and become less noticeable, but they won't go away completely.

Pregnancy weight gain

You are more likely to get stretch marks if your weight gain is more than average in pregnancy. Most women gain between 10kg and 12.5kg (22 and 28lb) in pregnancy, although weight gain varies a great deal from woman to woman.

Stretch marks are not harmful. They don't cause medical problems. Over time, your skin will shrink and the stretch marks will fade into white-coloured scars.

Preventing stretch marks

Some creams claim to remove stretch marks once they've appeared, but there is no reliable evidence that they work. There is also limited evidence about whether oils or creams help prevent stretch marks from appearing in the first place.

Prevent stretch marks during pregnancy to some extent-maintain a healthy lifestyle

Make your diet skin-nourishing

You've probably started eating a balanced diet to ensure that your baby gets enough nutrients and vitamins. While you are at it, incorporate foods that promote skin health and those that will improve the elasticity of your skin. This will help keep stretch marks from appearing. Incorporate these foods to your diet:


Foods packed with antioxidants: as they will help protect and nourish your skin. They include vegetables and fruits
Food that is rich in vitamin E: as it protects the cell membranes of your skin. Eat collard greens, broccoli, seeds and nuts.
Foods rich in vitamin A: as they repair the tissues of your skin. Eat red bell peppers, sweet potatoes, carrots, squash and mango.
Food that is rich in omega-3 and 6: as it will make your skin glow and keep the cell membranes healthy. Eat, eggs, walnuts, fish oil and fish.


Increase intake of liquids

Liquids help detoxify the body and also keep the cells of the skin plump, which in turn makes the skin healthy. Your skin will also be able to get back to normal from the stresses brought by stretch marks. Here are some liquid drinking habits you should practice:


Drinking eight glasses of water each day. If you are unable to ingest all at once, you can get a bottle of water that can carry all 8 glasses of water and drink the water in bits throughout the day.


Do low impact exercises

Exercise helps to retain your skin's elasticity by improving circulation. Additionally, you will be able to keep off those extra pounds.


Perform exercises for pregnant women. They include kegel exercises, stretches and all other simple movements.
Try low impact exercises and yoga. Pilates and yoga help you get rid of uncomfortable positions during pregnancy.


Pay attention to your weight

When you gain too much weight fast, you will have stretch marks. That is why you need to keep an eye on your weight. You can do so by:


Avoiding overeating. Even though pregnant women are required to eat more calories than they were eating before, it does not mean that you eat twice as much.
Keeping cravings at bay. When they do come, just have a little of whatever food you have cravings for and top it with a hefty serving of fruits. That way, you will have satisfied your cravings while watching your weight.


Apply natural oils

Natural oils moisturize and hydrate your skin. Apply natural oils on your lower back, legs, thighs, sides, belly and anywhere else.

Bio oil, shea butter, almond oil, wheat germ oil and cocoa butter are quite popular oils for moisturizing the skin of pregnant women. Pure lanolin is also wonderful.

सुबह गुनगुने पानी में शहद डालकर पीने के लाभ

इस बात से हम सभी वाकिफ हैं कि सुबह एक गिलास गुनगुने पानी में नींबू का रस और शहद मिलाकर पीना स्‍वास्‍थ्‍य के लिए अच्‍छा होता है। शहद को गर्म पानी के साथ लेने से वजन कम होता है। और इसके नियमित सेवन से सेहत से जुड़ी कई समस्याओं से हमेशा के लिए निजात मिल सकती है।


पाचन सुधारे
अच्छे पाचन के लिए सुबह गर्म पानी में शहद और नींबू मिलाकर पीना चाहिए। यह पेट को साफ करने में मदद करता है। यह लीवर में रस के उत्‍पादन को बढ़ाता है जिससे पाचन में मदद मिलती है। नींबू में मौजूद एसिड आपके पाचन तंत्र में मदद करता है और अवांछित विषाक्त पदार्थों को बाहर निकालने में मदद करता है। इसके अलावा शहद एक एंटीबैक्‍टीरियल के रूप में कार्य करता है और आपके शरीर में मौजूद किसी भी तरह के संक्रमण को दूर करने में मदद करता है।


कब्‍ज दूर करें
यह मिश्रण कब्‍ज के लिए तत्‍काल उपाय है। यह आंत को प्रोत्‍साहित कर मल त्‍यागने में मदद करता है। इसके अलावा यह आंत्र म्‍यूकस में बढ़ावा देता है, पेट को हाइड्रेट करता है और सूखे मल को पानी में भिगो देता है। इन सब की एक साथ मौजूदगी से मल त्‍यागने में मदद करता है


लसीका प्रणाली की सफाई में मददगार
लसीका प्रणाली में पानी और आवश्यक तरल पदार्थ की कमी हो जाती है जिससे आपको सुस्त और थका हुआ महसूस होना, कब्ज, सोने में परेशानी, उच्च या निम्न रक्तचाप, तनाव और मानसिक स्‍वास्‍थ्‍य पर असर पड़ता है। सुबह-सुबह इस मिश्रण को पीने से लसीका प्रणाली को हाइड्रेट होने में मदद मिलती है जिससे न केवल सभी उपरोक्त लक्षणों बल्कि प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली में सुधार होता है


मौखिक स्वास्थ्य में सुधार
एसिडिक प्रकृति का नींबू, शहद और गुनगुने पानी के साथ सांसों की बदबू को तुरंत दूर करने में मददगार होता है। नींबू अपनी लार ग्रंथियों को सक्रिय और आक्रामक बैक्टीरिया को मार कर मुंह शुद्ध करने में मदद करता है। सांस में बदबू का कारण जीभ पर सफेद परत का गठन (मुख्य रूप से खाद्य और बैक्टीरिया से मिलकर) भी है, यह रस इस परत को प्रभावी ढंग से हटाकर सांस की बदबू से प्राकृतिक रूप से छुटकारा दिलाता है

मूत्रवर्धक के रूप में कार्य
शहद में बहुत ही शक्तिशाली एंटी-बैक्‍टीरियल के गुण होते हैं। इसमें कई प्रकार के संक्रमण को दूर करने की क्षमता होती है। नींबू और पानी के साथ यह मिश्रित – एक उत्कृष्ट मूत्रल (आपके शरीर से पानी बाहर निकलवाने वाला एजेंट) के रूप में कार्य करता है। यह आपके मूत्र मार्ग को साफ करने का सबसे अच्छा तरीका है। यूटीआई (यूरिनरी ट्रैक्ट इन्फेक्शन) से पीड़‍ित महिलाओं के लिए यह रस एक वरदान की तरह है क्‍योंकि यह संक्रमण को दूर करने में मदद करता हे।


एनर्जी लेवल बढ़ाये
शहद और गर्म पानी से शरीर में एनर्जी में भी वृद्धि होती है। शरीर में ज्यादा एनर्जी उत्पन्न होने से शरीर का मेटाबॉलिज्म और कार्यप्रणाली में भी वृद्धि होती है। शहद शरीर के अंगों को ठीक से काम करने के लिए प्रेरित करता है। सुबह में गर्म पानी नींबू के साथ लेने से आप दिन भर ऊर्जावान बने रह सकते हैं


वजन घटाने में मददगार
शहद और नींबू के साथ गर्म पानी लेने से भूख कम लगती है। शहद और नींबू के साथ गर्म पानी में बड़ी मात्रा में फाइबर मौजूद होता है, जो भूख की इच्छा और शूगर लेवल को कम करके पर्याप्त एनर्जी प्रदान करता है। इस‍ तरह से नियमित रूप से सुबह इसका सेवन करने से दिन भर में आपके द्वारा लिए गए भोजन की मात्रा कम हो जाएगी। अपने दिन की शुरुआत गुनगुने पानी के साथ शहद और नींबू के साथ करने से आपका वजन काफी हद तक कम हो जाएगा।


त्‍वचा के लिए लाभकारी
त्‍वचा के लिए नींबू के लाभ अनगिनत है लेकिन इसके अलावा इसमें मौजूद क्‍लीजिंग तत्‍व रक्त को शुद्ध करने में मदद करता है, नई रक्त कोशिकाओं के उत्पादन में मदद करता है। पानी और शहद का मिश्रण आपकी त्वचा के लिए एक अनूठा दृढ, जीवाणुरोधी और कोलेजन बढ़ाने वाले गुण होते है। इसलिए अगर आप स्वाभाविक रूप से चमकदार त्वचा चाहती हैं तो यह पेय आपके लिए बहुत लाभकारी साबित होगा


पोषक तत्वों और विटामिन से भरपूर
शहद और नींबू के गर्म पानी में कई जरूरी एंटी-आक्सीडेंट, विटामिन और पोषक तत्व पाए जाते हैं, इसके अलावा इसमें एंटी इफ्लेमेंटरी गुण भी मौजूद होते है। इसलिए इसके सेवन से शरीर की प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली मजबूत होती है। साथ ही यह वजन कम करने में सहायक होती हैं


रोग प्रतिरोधी क्षमता में मजबूती
शहद का सेवन शरीर के लिए काफी फायदेमंद है इसीलिए डॉक्टर हमेशा इसके सेवन की सलाह देते हैं। शहद के साथ नींबू और गुनगुने पानी के नियमित सेवन शरीर की प्रतिरोधी क्षमता बढ़ती है। शहद और नींबू में मौजूद एंटीऑक्सीडेंट्स और कई पोषक तत्व शरीर को मौसम बदलने के साथ होने वाले संक्रमणों से दूर रखने में मदद रखता हैं

You should do kegel exercises to tighten your vagina. It should be done continuously for 3 to 4 months to get the results. For doing kegel exercises you have to tighten vagina with the help of surrounding muscles. To contract the correct muscles, you can insert a finger inside your vagina and try tightening around your finger. You don't need to put your finger every time you do the exercise. Once you tighten your vagina and its muscles, you start counting from 1 to 10 and then only relax the vagina. Keep repeating similar exercises 5-6 times in a single setting.

As you don't have a child, there is a option of ovum preservation before starting chemotherapy. Many women experience menopause after chemotherapy, most of them start their normal menstrual cycle within 2 years and can have normal babies. Some might have permanent menopause. Recently there are some drugs given during chemotherapy which may reduce the effects of chemotherapy on ovaries and increase chances of pregnancy later on. Please consult Radiation oncologist from your city for further information. Hope this information is helpful.

The most common cause of delayed periods is pregnancy. That depends if you had regular periods before marriage. If you had regular periods before then could be stress related. Or maybe you have not tested with pregnancy test properly. Either you repeat the urine test or get a blood pregnancy test called beta hcg.

Hello, some women find it difficult to sleep in pregnancy wheras some others want to sleep all the time. You should probably try and keep yourself active if you arent already. Have a walk for about 20-30 mins after lunch and dinner. Avoid napping during the day. Consume a glass of hot milk before sleeping in the night. No phones/tabs before sleeping.
