Hi lybrate-user, your ovulation is ok. Your period is normal. But your chance of pregnancy is less due to dysmenorrhoea. That means cycle is not clear and ok. Congestive dysmenorrhoea occurs with brown color of blood. Try to correct your cycle by natural herbal drugs. Your endometrial bed will be ok and fit for implantation of fetus. Ovarian cycle may be normal but uterine cycle should be well.

My friend suffers from unbearable back pain in every winter. Is its normal? Suggest cures.
This is a general low back ache and for this you can follow these measures: one keep a pillow right under the knee while sleeping, next is you can keep ice in the painful area for about 5--10 minutes, if pain still persists you can stretch your body by twisting the waist on both sides how we used to do in the school drill similarly you can try which will help you relax as well will reduce the pain. Ice can be kept in the low back where you have back pain. It is suggestible to wear lumbo sacral belt which would help you to build the abdominal muscle tone which itself would make you feel better. You can also wear mcr chappals which would help you to have less weight falling in the painful back. You can wear socks to make your body feel warm and also keep a door mat whenever you sit on a chair.

I have in back problem, when I am setting or lifting heavy things. What I do for leave this problem?
First of all check your posture when you are lifting any material like heavy bucket . And try to lift the heavy bucket without bending your back . you may lift the bucket after bending your knees only. This will definitely help you. * Gentle massage with lukewarm mustard oil of your waist area will also give you relief. * Surya Namaskar is only exercise which you need to do. * In diet vegetable protein of cereal , B complex supplements and half teaspoon of haldi in a cup of milk for seven days will give you enough relief.

Hi, your body weight is carried by knees and ankle and feet. The more weight you carry the more pressure it puts on these 3 areas. For weight loss you definitely need to streamline your lifestyle by any modification that it may require like altering eating pattern, exercise and stress relief. The real need for weight loss is purely motivation from your end. Incase you are interested in getting professional help on your diet pls feel free to consult me privately online.

I'm having severe pain in right knee since last 2 days. What exercise I must opt for to reduce the pain?
Since the knee pain is since 2 days, you need rest. Apply ice pack 5 times daily for 10 minutes every time. If pain is very severe without any reason, visit orthopaedic surgeon and get it examined. May need x Rays and MRI of your knee.
