My age is 40 years & I had conceived via ICSE & my HCG levels were very good for a couple of days but suddenly my HCG level dropped drastically & the pregnancy failed to sustain, what could be the reason behind this?

The exact reason is difficult to say without investigation. Main reasons are endometrial receptivity problem, progesterone deficiency or other systemic disease that do not support pregnancy.

Light therapy for treating Seasonal Affective disorder

Light therapy for treating Seasonal Affective disorder

One of the unique forms of depression is the Seasonal affective disorder which is characterized by the onset of depression with the start of the winter months and a full remission during spring time. Seasonal affective disorder is a form of depression that affects about 1 in 20 people around the world on average. One of the common therapies used to treat this disorder is light therapy.

What is light therapy?

Light therapy is the controlled exposure to specific amounts of bright light on a daily basis as a medicinal tool to correct depression and other mental disorders. It has been noticed that the lack of exposure to lights may trigger certain mental disorders within patients and controlled exposure to bright light over a stipulated period of time every day may be able to correct this effectively.

How it works?

Brightness within the daily world is usually measured with the unit of lux. For all types of artificial lights, the measure of luminosity is estimated via this unit. Human beings have an automatic trigger where low light levels for continued periods may cause depression. A clear sunny day outdoors will have a measurement of 10,000 lux and this is the recommended dosage for exposure for people suffering from depression.

It has been seen in studies that people with severe forms of Seasonal Affective disorder responded well to this therapy. They were treated 30 minutes daily with light exposure and over time the study showed that it significantly improved the moods of the people.

Some of the reasons why light therapy proves to be an effective treatment option for SAD include:

  • It resets the circadian rhythm - Controlled exposure to light will trigger the hormones that control the circadian rhythms or the daily rhythms of sleeping and walking cycles and thus will help reduce depression.
  • It triggers neurotransmitter function - Light exposure triggers certain neurotransmitter functions which work like an antidepressant and thus relieves stress or other internal functions that may cause depression.
  • Results in an increase in serotonin levels - This hormone is very important for mood elevation and is known to rise with increased light levels and decrease with low light levels. Controlled exposure can definitely help improve serotonin levels for lessening depression symptoms.

I have a baby son with 1 year 4 month of age. Now i am 4 month pregnant. Is there any problem to breast feeding to my son.

Pediatrician, Bangalore
Stop immediately breast feeding your elder. At this age no nutritional value in your milk rather he will not take proper solid foods which are necessary in growing children and it will also effect yr foetus growth.

Its due to hormonal imbalance and side effects of tab these r home remedies try it sesame seeds are useful in regulating menstrual cycles as they help balance your hormones. They are loaded with lignans that help bind excess hormones. Plus, they contain essential fatty acids that promote optimal hormone production. Jaggery, too, helps regulate menstrual cycles due to its warming effects. 1. Dry roast a handful of sesame seeds. 2. Grind them along with one teaspoon of jaggery into a fine powder. 3. Take one teaspoon of this powder daily on an empty stomach in the luteal phase, or second half of your menstrual cycle (two weeks before your period starts), for a few months. Simply eating a piece of jaggery, also known as gur, will also help regulate menstruation. Note: do not use this remedy during your periods.

As my wife is 13 week pregnant for second baby last time was low lying placenta and delivered through C section. So some questions are coming in mind for this pregnancy. Can we both make relation ? Does orgasm effect baby and uterus when she got orgasm? Can we indulge in oral stimulation? Can we make love by inserting or without insertion to just stimulate and satisfy? Kindly guide us in details Thanks.

General Physician, Chandigarh
All your queries have one question what is the condition in this pregnancy in normal circumstances YoY should avoid sexual relationship in first trimester so take Ng her history in consideration till her condition is defined exactly by ultrasound YoY should avoid relations Excessive sexual stimulation can put uterus in spasm which can be dangerous you any vigorous relationship should be avoided Yiu can have a gentle relationship

My wife is 29 week pregnant. Doctor s said she is less in weight and also they said baby weights is only for 22 weeks. Old tell me how to increase the weight.

M.B.S.(HOMEO), MD - Homeopathy
Homeopath, Visakhapatnam
Fetus at 29 weeks15.2 inches2.54 pounds should be had. Very low birthweight babies are often born before 30 weeks of pregnancy. Being born early means a baby has less time in the mother's uterus to grow and gain weight. Much of a baby's weight is gained during the latter part of pregnancy. Another cause of very low birthweight is intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR). Increase Your Calories Nutrition is key during pregnancy. The foods you eat play a direct role in your baby's growth and development. Eating a well-balanced diet that includes a variety of fruits, vegetables, grains, lean meat and dairy foods ensures that your unborn baby is getting each of the nutrients she needs to grow. During the third trimester, which is the last three months of pregnancy, you'll need to eat about 300 additional calories per day to promote normal growth, according to the American Pregnancy Association. Of course, you should increase your caloric intake with nutrient dense foods, and avoid high calorie foods such as cake, soda and fast food because they don't supply your baby with essential nutrients.

In last month of pregnancy better to confirm with obstetrician examining her whether intercourse is allowed. If allowed no problem if semen goes in. Better to use condoms.

Stop such thoughts, you r too immature for all this. Focus on priorities of your life and if concerned too much then meet a sexologist with an understanding parent.

Does eating chocolates during periods have good or adverse effects on mensuration cycle? How to regulate menstruation flow and be healthy.

Homeopath, Faridabad
According to the Food and Drug Administration's Center for Drugs and Biologics, though chocolate contains a small amount of caffeine, it contains large amounts of theobromine,which is classified as a mild stimulant of the central nervous system. Because of this, chocolate can create a nervous condition that actually accentuates pain and discomfort. Management of pain: Place a heating pad or hot water bottle on your lower back or abdomen. Taking a warm bath may also provide some relief. To relieve menstrual cramps, you should also: Rest when needed. Avoid foods that contain caffeine and salt. Avoid smoking and drinking alcohol. Massage your lower back and abdomen. Keep yourself hydrated as dehydration also leads to cramps. Intake of warm things may help you in some cases. Women who exercise regularly often have less menstrual pain. To help prevent cramps, make exercise a part of your weekly routine. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicines - Schwabe's Mag. Phos. 6x and Colocynthis 200 - both every 2 hrly till menstrual pain is there.
