For over bleeding there are many causes those are mainly hormone imbalance. In a normal menstrual cycle, a balance between the hormones estrogen and progesterone regulates the buildup of the lining of the uterus (endometrium), which is shed during menstruation. If a hormone imbalance occurs, the endometrium develops in excess and eventually sheds by way of heavy menstrual bleeding. Dysfunction of the ovaries. If your ovaries don't release an egg (ovulate) during a menstrual cycle (anovulation), your body doesn't produce the hormone progesterone, as it would during a normal menstrual cycle. This leads to hormone imbalance and may result in menorrhagia. Uterine fibroids. These noncancerous (benign) tumors of the uterus appear during your childbearing years. Uterine fibroids may cause heavier than normal or prolonged menstrual bleeding. Polyps. Small, benign growths on the lining of the uterus (uterine polyps) may cause heavy or prolonged menstrual bleeding. Polyps of the uterus most commonly occur in women of reproductive age as the result of high hormone levels. Adenomyosis. This condition occurs when glands from the endometrium become embedded in the uterine muscle, often causing heavy bleeding and painful menses. Adenomyosis is most likely to develop if you're a middle-aged woman who has had children. Intrauterine device (iud). Menorrhagia is a well-known side effect of using a nonhormonal intrauterine device for birth control. When an iud is the cause of excessive menstrual bleeding, you may need to remove it. Pregnancy complications. A single, heavy, late period may be due to a miscarriage. If bleeding occurs at the usual time of menstruation, however, miscarriage is unlikely to be the cause. An ectopic pregnancy? implantation of a fertilized egg within the fallopian tube instead of the uterus? also may cause menorrhagia. Cancer. Rarely, uterine cancer, ovarian cancer and cervical cancer can cause excessive menstrual bleeding. Inherited bleeding disorders. Some blood coagulation disorders? such as von willebrand's disease, a condition in which an important blood-clotting factor is deficient or impaired? can cause abnormal menstrual bleeding. Medications. Certain drugs, including anti-inflammatory medications and anticoagulants, can contribute to heavy or prolonged menstrual bleeding. Other medical conditions. A number of other medical conditions, including pelvic inflammatory disease (pid), thyroid problems, endometriosis, and liver or kidney disease, may be associated with menorrhagia.

Hello, You need to rule out PCOS, hypothyroidism and hyperprolatinemia. If pregnancy is ruled out then you can opt for a withdrawal bleed with progesterones to resume your menses.

Hello First thing needed to be done is urine pregnancy test. If that is negative then you should wait for few more days for menses to return. If the problem still persists then consultation is necessary to rule out any other problem.

Did you know obsessive use of smartphones can lead to sagging jowls and wrinkled necks, what is called the text turkey neck. The skin on the neck is very thin. So looking down at your phone constantly causes collagen and elastin to break down and leads to deep wrinkles and sagging.

Cricket is the most famous and close to the heart game for most of the people in India. Any injury to any player is a big hit to the entire team's performance. While cricket is a major sport in the country, sportspersons from other games too have begun to make a mark in the international arena. It is because of this, we have come to hear about sports injuries much more than ever before, with injuries to cricketers still heard most often.

What are the types of injuries related to Cricket?

The most common injuries related to the gentleman's game are:

- Hamstring strain
- Low back pain
- Side strain
- Shoulder pain
- Sprained ankle

How does Physiotherapy help an individual?

A physiotherapist assesses your muscle strength and the range of movement in your joints and advises on techniques and exercises to bring back the mobility of your injured muscles or inflamed joints.

Physiotherapy is a physical therapy that takes care of the overall well-being of the body. The muscular part is most affected when you play or exercise. Three of the main approaches a physiotherapist may use are:

Education and advice - Tips and hacks for ensuring physical well-being of a person
Movement and exercise - Aids and exercises to ensure good physical health
Manual therapy - A therapy of manual massage and body movements to relieve pain
Other techniques - These include acupuncture, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) and ultrasounds.

There are numerous sports-related injuries that can be effectively treated with physiotherapy. The therapy followed is entirely dependent on the kind of injury caused due to the sport.

The physiotherapist initially asks you some questions to know about your injury, medical history, family health records, prevalent allergies, and other such related information. Based on this initial examination, your physiotherapist will design a therapy plan for a test period to see if it is working or not.

Ginger: 9 Reasons Why You Should Know Adrak Ka Swaad

Ginger or adrak, a staple spice of Indian household today, originated in the south-east Asia more than 5000 years ago. Back then, it was considered a medicine for all ailments. It contains a compound known as 'gingerol' that has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

Ginger has been used to combat the common cold in addition to being a taste enhancer in food and tea. But little do we know about the gamut of health benefits that it provides.

Here are some amazing health benefits of this wonder spice:

1. Boosts immunity

It cleans the body's sewage system thereby preventing the accumulation of toxins. Cut ginger into small pieces and put into a bowl of water and then boil for 8-10 minutes. Drink this herbal solution for 3-4 times a day, relieving you of the irritating coughs in addition to boosting your immunity. If you do not like the taste of it, stir some honey or lemon into it.

2. Helps in weight loss

Ginger also helps in promoting weight loss. It activates the body's metabolism and hence leads to burning of fat. Heat a cup of water till it boils, now add a small piece of ginger and keep it covered for five minutes. You can add lemon juice to taste. Drink this before breakfast for reaping maximum benefits.

3. Regulates blood pressure

Ginger acts similar to blood pressure controlling pills. It blocks the flow of calcium into heart cells which lowers blood pressure. Drink ginger tea before breakfast instead of popping the prescription pill.

4. Helps clear acne

The ginger extract helps in purification of blood. Extract ginger juice and store it in a refrigerator. Mix 2 tablespoon of ginger juice along with 2 tablespoons of honey and consume every morning on an empty stomach. This helps you get rid of a pimple, acne, and other skin disorders.

5. Lowers cholesterol

Consuming 2-3 grams of dry ginger every day has been associated with lowering cholesterol levels. Consuming ginger activates an enzyme that increases body's use of cholesterol. It also protects a diabetic person's organs such as liver and kidneys.

6. Aids in digestion

A good stomach is the sign of good health. A common problem among the mass is indigestion. Ginger is helpful in battling indigestion. Peel and cut the ginger into small pieces. Soak these in honey in a bottle and keep in sunlight for 10 days. Consume 2-4 pieces every morning.

7. Cures nausea

Chewing raw ginger is effective in treating nausea. Wash and peel ginger before cutting into small pieces. Chew these pieces throughout the day. You can also grab some snacks containing ginger.

8. Eases muscle pain

Heavy weight lifting at the gym often leads to muscle pain the following days. The anti-inflammatory property, attributed to sesquiterpenes such as zingiberene present in ginger, helps in reducing exercise-induced muscle pain if taken consistently over a period of time. One teaspoon of dried ginger or 2 teaspoons of chopped ginger can be added to meals daily.

9. Relieves joint pain

The anti-inflammatory property of the ginger helps in fighting osteoarthritis- a condition of joint pain and stiffness. Applying ginger oil topically on the joints lowers the pain and also eliminates the necessity to pop pain killers.

It should be noted here that ginger should not be given to children under the age of 2 years. For children over 2 years, you should consult your doctor to determine the right dose. Adults should not consume more than 4 grams per day.

With so much to offer, ginger can safely be tagged as a superfood that you should make a part of your daily diet.

No it will not cause any problem in your married life. As with any health concern, especially leading up to pregnancy or after conception, discuss all concerns with your healthcare provider. Hypertension (high blood pressure) can cause problems with erection, either directly or as a side effect of medication, as some medications used to treat hypertension in men can lead to decreased fertility. Spironolactone, which is found in several medications for high blood pressure, is believed to interfere with sperm production. Other blood pressure medicines can interfere with the sperm's ability to fertilize an egg. There are a number of things that you can do to help preserve and promote your fertility. Eat a healthy, balanced diet. Take regular exercise. Try to maintain your weight in the ideal range. Don't smoke & quit alcohol consumption. Don't use recreational drugs. Try to reduce stress.
