Find out what is the cause of you becoming overweight. If it is simply because of overeatting you need to curtail your diet. Have low calory food. Do exercise. Better to consult a diatecian. However be sure that your thyroid function is normal and get an ultrasound to exclude the possibility of pcod.

Hi, I am a 28 year old woman and is likely to get married by next year. Since I will already be 29 by the time I get married, should I plan to have a baby right after marriage or I can take time? My fiancee is not keen to plan a baby right after marriage since he is also 28 and we want to enjoy a bit before planning a baby. But I am worried. Will I have problem if I delay it by 2 to 3 years?

Delayed Childbearing In comparison to postponing a marriage, postponing a first birth is more clearly Associated with negative outcomes, including not being able to have a child at all. However, These negative outcomes are becoming less common and less important over time, and delayed Childbearing is also associated with positive economic and psychological outcomes. In this Section, I review the economic, social/psychological, and biomedical effects associated with Childbearing. Birth Timing and Income When women take time from their careers to have children, they clearly suffer deficits in Income relative to what they would have earned had they not had children. Part of the literature On this “wage gap” for mothers examines whether the deficits in income vary by the age at which Women have children. Taniguchi (1999) reported that early child bearers are likely to experience A higher wage penalty, possibly because their career interruptions occur during a critical period Of career building. In earlier work, Van Velsor and O’Rand (1984) reported that interrupting a Career for childbearing brought a smaller wage penalty than starting a career after childbearing, And that the wage penalty for a woman’s career interruption had declined over time.

Hi yunus. had she been pregnant she would not have got her periods. Sometimes hormonal disturbances can also delay periods and cause similar symptoms such as pregnancy. However if in doubt, its best to do a pregnancy test and check.

What is the difference between normal delivery and cesarian section for pregnant women.
normal deliveryis natural spontaneous vaginal delivery. delivering a baby through the vagina. a little incision is made in the vaginal wall to accomodate the baby's head and shoulder.cesarean, on other hand, is a form of delivery in which a big incision in the abdomen and uterus is done where the baby can pass through, this is usually done if the baby's feet is on the vaginal side making it hard for the doctor to pull off the baby through the vaginal canal, this done in pre-eclampsia cases, or prolonged labor or any complication during pregnancy.

The Surprising Health Benefits of Laughter

The Surprising Health Benefits of Laughter

Laughter is the best medicine, they say. Apart from making you happy and thawing a potentially anxiety ridden atmosphere, laughter can also promote good health. A deep rooted laughter session once in a while can actually rejuvenate you and give you a dose of health.

If this surprises you, then you need to read the rest of this article to find out how a bout of stress free laughter can help you in the health department. Read on to know more!

  1. Blood Pressure: Laughing can helping in keeping your blood pressure low, as per various medical studies. This can potentially reduce the risk of falling prey to heart attacks and strokes. The blood pressure will genuinely come down when you laugh heartily, which is especially helpful in situations for patients of hypertension so as to bring down the stress levels.
  2. Immunity: Did you know that the immune system of the body can get affected by the stress hormone levels? When your brain brings on signals that hint at stress and anxiety, laughter can also help in bringing down the stress levels simply by sharing a joke and laughing about a funny episode with someone close to you. This also gives a boost to the body's immune system. Also, when you laugh really hard, the T cells of the body get activated, which is how the immunity gets a boost so that the next time you are about to catch a cold or flu, the immunity takes over naturally.
  3. Cardiac Health: Laughter is great for the cardiac health because it helps the heart pump and burns the same number of calories that one would during a long walk. It is a great cardio workout that is ideal for people who are bed ridden due to illness or injury.
  4. Abs: A long and heartfelt laughter session can actually work your abs as it helps the inactive muscles of the area in contracting and relaxing. This is similar to a moderate work out for the abs. So getting a toned tummy can actually be as easy as having a good laugh.
  5. Endorphins: The body's natural pain killers reside in the Endorphin hormone. So have a good laugh and release these hormones as a natural side effect of laughing hard. This can help in reliving chronic pain as well.

The best part about laughter is that it generally increases the feel good factor inside you and helps you achieve a more relaxed mind and body where the immunity, heart health and general wellbeing are taken care of. So laugh your way to good health and get a well-functioning immune system with a well-toned body as well.

Sometimes there is occasional pain. You don't need precaution during intercourse. But must check the thread inside vagina by finger after each period and even in between.

Hi Priya it would be dangerous to have medicines without doctor's supervision. It can give rise to damage to the uterus. It is always better to have Medicine under doctors supervision. If the abortion is incomplete it may require surgical evacuation also.

How we get relief from the periods pain?

BHMS
Homeopath,
How we get relief from the periods pain?
Hello. We can minimize the pain during menses with diet and medicines (which are safe to take).. Diet: - Calcium is a mineral associated with building healthy bones and teeth. However, it may have some applications in minimizing the harmful effects of menstrual cramping. So,increase your intake by eating low-fat dairy products such as milk, yogurt and cheese or green leafy vegetables. - Your body uses vitamin B-6 to manufacture new red blood cells. When you lose red blood cells via menorrhagia, your body will need more to build new cells. Also, vitamin B-6 is required for your blood sugar to stay at healthy levels. This can help prevent menstrual cramping-related mood swings and fatigue. Vitamin B-6 is found in fortified cereals, bananas, spinach, sunflower seeds, avocados, tomato juice and salmon. - Just as foods can help reduce the symptoms of menstrual cramping and bleeding, foods can aggravate your symptoms. This includes eating excessive amounts of sugar -- such as cakes, cookies and pies. These are known to contribute to water retention, which make you feel bloated and uncomfortable. High-salt content foods -- french fries, pizza and other fried foods --- can also contribute to bloating. Caffeine-containing beverages like tea and coffee should be avoided as they can contribute to headaches, mood swings and trouble sleeping. - If you're craving chocolate, make sure it's over 70 per cent cocoa. This bittersweet treat will help you relax your muscles. - We all know fluids are essential when your body is cramping or bloating. Drinking two to three litres of water during your period is essential. - Tea is an easy way to replace your caffeine craving. Green tea to soothe cramps. now, even though green tea contains caffeine, try decaffeinated green tea instead — but be aware, you may lose some health benefits with a decaf version. Caffeine is another no-no. Drinking lots of coffee or pop during your period can increase higher levels of tension and anxiety. - Avoid anything that can damage your liver should be off the list. So, avoid alcohol. - Red meat, Smart says, is also know to cause stomach upsets and cramps. Medication: Start taking homoeopathic medicines - Mag. Phos. 6x and Colocynthis 200 - every 2 hrly. during the time of menses. And take Five Phos. and Alfaalfa Tonic - thrice daily for 1 month. Revert me back.
