Hello. If you don’t have any medical condition and if your diet is poor to begin with, it is even more important to make sure you have a healthy diet now. You need more vitamins and minerals, especially folic acid and iron. You need a few more calories during your pregnancy as well. Getting your diet right for pregnancy is more about what you eat than about how much. Limit junk food, as it has lots of calories with few or no nutrients. Eat a variety of foods from these different food groups each day: Milk and dairy products: skimmed milk, yogurt/curd, buttermilk (chhaach), cottage cheese (paneer). They contain calcium. Cereals, whole grains, dals, pulses and nuts: these are good sources of protein if you do not eat meat. Vegetarians need about 45 grams of nuts and 2/3 of a cup of legumes for protein each day. Vegetables and fruits: these provide vitamins, minerals and fibre. Avoid Papaya. Meat, fish and poultry: these provide concentrated proteins. Fluids: Drink lots of fluids, especially water and fresh fruit juices. Make sure you drink clean boiled or filtered water. Carry your own water when out of the house, or buy bottled water from a reputed brand. Avoid packaged juices as they have a very high sugar content. Fats and oils: Ghee, butter, coconut milk and oil are high in saturated fats, which are not very healthy. Hydrogenated vanaspati oil and ghee is high in trans fats, which are as bad for you as saturated fats. A better source of fat is vegetable oils because these contain more unsaturated fat. Foods to be avoided in normal pregnancy: Raw or partly cooked eggs, Raw or undercooked meat, Caffeine, Liver, Cold cured meats, Vitamin/fish oil supplements, papaya.

It is not semen leakage that is important but whether semen has adequate sperms/ml. Only one sperm is needed for fertilization and 1 ml of semen has 60-120 million sperms/ml.

Hello, I'm writing this on behalf of my girlfriend. She underwent laparoscopy in both her ovaries to remove the cyst. And the condition of her left ovary was very critical so a part of the ovary had to be operated. The operation took place in December 3rd. And after that she was under medication. A week ago she underwent an usg and the result showed that there is no sign of pcos but peripheral cysts have been found. What does this mean?

In pcod those cyst are going to be there and does not need any treatment. This is normal finding in pcod. Also pcod patients develop larger cysts also again and again which does not any surgery or laparoscopy. They resolve in a month or two without any treatment. As they were on both sides, they were 100% functional cysts specially in a girl who has pcod. Laparoscopy was not needed at all. Do not worry about those small cysts now, they r going to be there.

Yes this is frustrating for anyone. You need to begin with open communication about sexual relationships and creating bonding between you and your spouse. Basically you need to ask her about her thoughts and feelings regarding lovemaking i. E. Sexual intercourse. Such issues are common in many girls/women since beginning of humanity due to apprehensions and fear about sexuality. It happens due to lack of quality understanding of basics of sexual relationships. What men/women know and understand about sexuality and relationships is via half-hearted hearsay guidance and porn watching. Also sexuality is stigmatized as bad since childhood specially for women. Solutions lie in open communication and interaction with an expert sexologist along with your wife. Sexual relationships in couples is a part of life and basis of lifetime bonding. Therefore it needs to begin with proper understanding and in right way where both man and wife enjoy in a quality way. Move on for proper guidance with expert. All the best.

If you have a healthy pregnancy, there?s no reason why you and your partner can not have sex. You would not hurt your baby by making love. There are, however, some circumstances where you may have to be careful about having sex. If you?ve had any bleeding or spotting in early pregnancy, your doctor may advise you not to have sex until you reach 14 weeks. Your doctor may say it's best not to have sex for the rest of your pregnancy if you have: - a history of cervical weakness - a low-lying placenta (placenta praevia) - had heavy bleeding - had a vaginal infection It is advisable to consult your gynecologist if you have a doubt.

10 BEAUTY TIPS I BET YOU DIDN'T KNOW !

1. Your skin should drink red wine. It's true, the antioxidants in red wine are easily absorbed and good for softening your skin! but before you fill a tub with it try smaller doses like a foot or hand soak. Or just cut a grape in half and rub it on your face then wash it off after 15 minutes.

2. Your salad fights wrinkles! plus you'll get healthy nails and hair with silicone-rich foods, eat romaine lettuce, spinach, cucumber, bell pepper, and tomatoes (with the skin on)

3. Honey heals & hydrates. Toss your lip balm and try this natural alternative!

4. Juice your hair! lemon juice combined with tea is great for oily hair. Do half lemon juice, half black tea and rinse through clean hair. The lemon works as a great astringent but doesn't ruin the ph balance.

5. Face off in your kitchen. Ever come home to an empty bottle of make up remover? don't panic! a small amount of olive oil on a cotton pad can gently remove the toughest makeup! (just be sure to remove any oil residue with a clean pad dipped in water.)

6. No stinky feet at tea time. Soak smelly feet in a black tea bath, tea's tannins are good at neutralizing odors.

7. Lemonade for your face! you don't need expensive creams and serums. Find a brighter complexion in your kitchen! just rub a lemon on your face (but don't go out in the sun right away!)

8. Oli-free, eggsactly. Paint a thin layer of egg white after washing your face to fight shine!

9. Be a potato head! potato slices erase dark circles and lighten the skin around your eyes. Next time you want to erase a hangover reach for a potato instead of concealer. (also cucumbers reduce puffiness because they are colder than the skin.)

10. Nail this tip! before a blood red mani or pedi soak your nails in a mixture of lemon juice and warm water to reduce discoloration. The rest of the lemon add to your tea to help boost your immune system, help digestion and clear up your skin!

Dear user we can very well appreciate your concern regarding pregnancy. Please understand that ubiphene and fertomid both have a same constituent i. E clomifene. Clomifene is used to treat infertility in women caused by failure or improper release of eggs from ovary (ovulation). It belongs to a class of medicines known as antiestrogens. It acts by changing the hormonal balance in the body. This stimulates release of eggs from the ovary, and helps in fertilization in females. Regarding your fertility issues we suggest you to meet an infertility specialist so that they can through examine you in person and advise accordingly.
