Hi ravi. I pill is known to cause delay in periods. Do not worry. However once they get delayed by 2 weeks, its best to do a pregnancy test and check. If negative then she can start with progesterone tablets to resume her period.

I am 20 years old. I didn't get menses from last 3 months. I performed sex with my husband in november 2015 and after that I didn't got menses for two months. I made pregnancy test at home for two times but the result is negative later I got menses in January. From January till now I didn't got menses and I didn't performed sex with my husband from that time. Now I wanted to know that as I didn't got menses am I pregnant?

If you got normal period in January and no sex after that then no chance of pregnancy but you must meet Gynaecologist for not getting periods properly.

Since how long you are getting pain and clots during monthly cycle? take carrot juice or grape juice or anar juice or beetroot juice or coconut water, or sugar cane juice (not for diabetes) with empty stomach in morning. Take sufficient sleep; do morning and evening walk, if interested any herbal ayurveda treatment, may inform.

Yummy tehri reinvented

Let's make a conventional tehri in our own style. Let's see how we promote the weight loss after eating healthy and nutritious food.
2nd recipe direct from my kitchen just for you.


Tehri (conventional way)
Ingredients
Rice 1 1?2 cup (24 tbs), soaked in water for 30 minutes, drained
Water 3 cup (48 tbs)
Vegetable oil 3 tablespoon
Turmeric powder 1 teaspoon
Salt 1 teaspoon
Whole spices:
Cumin seeds 1 teaspoon
Peppercorns 1?2 teaspoon
Star anise 3
Cloves 6
Cinnamon stick 1
Vegetables:
Carrot 1, cut up
Green peas 1?4 cup (4 tbs)
Cabbage /cauliflower 1?2 cup
Onion 1, thinly sliced

Directions
Making
1. In a pressure cooker, heat oil, add in the whole spices, cook for 30 seconds. Add onion and saute until the onions turn translucent.
2. Add the other vegetables and rice, stir and cook for 3 to 4 minutes. Pour in water, add salt and turmeric, close the lid and cook for about 5 minutes.
Serving (ideal for two serve).

Dietary fiber 14.7 g 58.9%
Sugars 12.2 g
Protein 28 g 56.6%
Vitamin a 212.2% vitamin c 52.5%
Calcium 28.1% iron 59.2%

Who does not like the yummy tasty' tehri. Now lets make it our way. Very healthy, yummy and low calorie. My own version of my favorite tehri right from my own kitchen.

We will use the same ingredient in most healthy and low calorie style, and then check the calorie count of our tehri.
Same ingredients just minus the oil and lessen the carbohydrate of the rice.
1. Boil one cup rice rice, when they are cooked and then drain the excess water. So our simple rice is ready.
2. Take a kadai, it should be heated t the maximum flame, then add onion, tomato, garlic and cook them with no oil. Add in the whole spices with salt, cook for 30 seconds and saute until the onions turn translucent after that add peas, other vegetables like carrot, cauliflower, broccoli.
3. Cook till the vegetables becomes soft, then add the turmeric powder, dhaniya powder, lal mirch and cook for 1 min.
4. After that add little water in the mix and add rice. Cook for 5-7 min and your yummy healthy recipe is ready. Now lets check its nutrific and calorie value.

So now lets check what is the diffrence between boiled and steamed rice.
Boiling means straining the excess water (starch) when the rice becomes soft. Steamed rice refer to the rice which is pressure cooked.
So the difference in calories if we take 100 gram steamed rice the calorie is 150 kcal and in cooked 100 grams boiled rice the calorie is 100 kcal. And the carbohydrate content is also very less in boiled rice. Brown rice can be a more healthier option if you like the taste of brown rice.

Lets see the calorie counts of our tehri.
We have used only one cup rice and taken out the excess starch. Secondly try to use as much vegetables in the rice. Vegetable increases the nutritive value but decreases the calories. We have reduced the calories count by 900 kcal. There is no diffrence in taste but we have added more of vegetables. So your minerals, vitamins and antioxidantteh content is more. What more you can ask for?

Sexually transmitted diseases (stds), also called sexually transmitted infections (stis) or venereal diseases (vd), are common throughout the world. Stds, which are spread primarily through sexual contact, can be painful and debilitating and may lead to serious conditions, such as pelvic inflammatory disease (pid), prostatitis, infertility, and pregnancy complications. In severe cases, stis can be life threatening.

There are more than 20 types of sexually transmitted diseases, including chlamydia, genital herpes, gonorrhea, syphilis, human papillomavirus (hpv; causes genital warts), trichomoniasis (called" trich"), and hiv/aids. Safer sex, std testing, and prompt treatment for stds can help reduce the spread of these infections.

How to prevent the spread of sexually transmitted infections and reduce your risk for serious std complications.

This is a common problem but well responds to treatment. Have an USG done. Consult gynecologist to diagnose the cause and get that cause treated.

Hi. I am 18 years old and am very confused between if I am either experiencing pregnancy symptoms or food poisoning. I have been experiencing stomach pains, high fever, chills, and diarrhea. I experienced vomitting and nausea but only once the first couple hours I experienced the symptoms. A few hours later pain worsened. I didn't experience nausea nor vomitting after but still had diarrhea, stomach pain, and high fever. The last time I had unprotected sexual intercourse was about 4 weeks ago. I have not missed my period but symptons are suspicious. Should I get checked or am I just assuming?

If your periods are irregular it is difficult to notice when you got pregnant. It is best to do home pregnancy test after 10 to 12 days of unprotected sex.

Hello. Eat iron rich diet. All green veges and fresh juice all are good. Carrots, spinach, pomogranate, apples, chukundar, broccoli all are good source of iron. With this take vitamin c also because it help in absorption of iron in body. For any other help keep in touch. Good luck in life.

Get urine pregnancy test done first. Most likely there is no pregnancy as you did not ejaculate inside. There are numerous causes of not having periods. If pregnancy is negative, go for blood test and usg to find out the cause and get the cause treated.
