Sex just before 3-4 days of menses r unlikely to make you pregnant. You can can check for pregnancy test only after 18-21 days of sex only if you don't get menses by that time. 7 days rule does not apply to you as sex was just before menses.

काजू के फायदे और नुकसान - Kaju Benefits And Side Effects In Hindi

 

काजू एनार्काडियम आक्सीडेन्टल पेड़ का बीज होता है। यह आम तौर पर भारतीय पॅक्वानो में सूखे फल के रूप में प्रयोग किया जाता है। ठोस, नरम, मीठा और स्वादिष्ट काजू ऊर्जा से भरा होता है। यह ब्राजील के अमेज़ॅन वर्षा वन से दुनियाभर में पुर्तगाली यात्रियों द्वारा फैल गया था। अब, ब्राजील, भारत, वियतनाम आदि जैसे विभिन्न देशों में इसकी खेती की जाती है। काजू मोनोअनसैचुरेटेड वसा और प्रोटीन का अच्छा स्रोत हैं। इसके अलावा, काजू विटामिन और खनिजों से भरा हुआ है। अतः काजू खाने के बहुत सारे लाभ हैं, जैसे कि:

1. ट्यूमर से लड़ता है: इसमें प्रोएन्टोकाइनाइडिन है, जो ट्यूमर कोशिकाओं के खिलाफ उनकी वृद्धि और विभाजन को रोक कर लड़ने की क्षमता रखता है। यह विभिन्न कैंसर जैसे कोलन, प्रोस्टेट आदि के कैंसर को रोकता है। इसके अलावा इस में विटामिन "के" होता है, जो ट्यूमर कोशिकाओं के विकास को दबाने की क्षमता रखता है। इसमें सेलेनियम और विटामिन "ई" जैसे एंटीऑक्सिडेंट हैं जो प्रतिरक्षा को बढ़ा देता है।

2. संक्रमण से लड़ता है: इसमें उच्च मात्रा मे जस्ता होता है जो विभिन्न संक्रमणों से लड़ने में मदद करता है।

3. दिल के लिए काजू के लाभ: इसमें मौजूद मैग्नीशियम रक्तचाप को बनाए रखने में मदद करता है। रक्तचाप को कम करने की इसकी प्रवृत्ति दिल के दौरे को रोकने में मदद करती है। इसमें, कम स्तर मे सोडियम और उच्च स्तर मे पोटेशियम होता है जो रक्तचाप को नियंत्रण में रखता है। काजू में ओलेइक एसिड और पॉमिटॉलिक एसिड नामक आवश्यक फैटी एसिड हैं, जो खराब कोलेस्ट्रॉल के स्तर को कम कर देते हैं और साथ ही अच्छे कोलेस्ट्रॉल और ट्राइग्लिसराइड्स के स्तर को बढ़ा देते हैं। काजू इस प्रकार रक्त के लिपिड प्रोफाइल को संतुलित करके कोरोनरी धमनी रोग और स्ट्रोक को रोकता है। इसके अलावा काजू एरोरोस्क्लेरोसिस को रोकता है और धमनियों में पट्टिका के गठन को कम कर देता है। यह ओमेगा -3 फैटी एसिड और ओमेगा -6 फैटी एसिड का भी एक अच्छा स्रोत है जो शक्तिशाली एंटीऑक्सिडेंट के रूप में कार्य करते हैं और रक्त कणों को मुक्त कण और हृद्-अतालता से रोकता है। ओलेइक एसिड की तरह आवश्यक फैटी एसिड, कोलेस्ट्रॉल को रक्तप्रवाह में प्रवेश करने से रोकते है। इस प्रकार काजू कम घनत्व वाले लिपोप्रोटीन (एलडीएल) को कम करता है और खून में उच्च घनत्व वाले लिपोप्रोटीन (एचडीएल) को बढ़ाता है और इस तरह हृदय रोगों के जोखिम को कम करता है।

4. बालों के लिए काजू का लाभ: इसमें तांबा नामक एक महत्वपूर्ण खनिज होता है, जो बालों को अपनी चमक, ताकत और काले रंग को बनाए रखने के लिए मदद करता है। इसमें पाया गया कॉपर कई एंजाइमों के लिए एक आवश्यक घटक के रूप में कार्य करता है। ट्राइरोसेनेस एक तांबे वाला एंजाइम है, जो टाइरोसिन को मेरिनिन (एक रंगद्रव्य जो बाल और त्वचा को रंग प्रदान करता है) में परिवर्तित करने में मदद करता है।

5. हड्डियों के लिए काजू का लाभ: इसमें कैल्शियम, मैग्नीशियम, फास्फोरस इत्यादि जैसे खनिज होते हैं जो हड्डियों के स्वस्थ विकास के लिए आवश्यक होते हैं। शरीर में अच्छा मैग्नीशियम स्तर भी हड्डियों द्वारा कैल्शियम अवशोषण स्तर को बढ़ाता है। इसकी उच्च स्तरीय प्रोटीन और अच्छे मैग्नीशियम और कैल्शियम का स्तर मजबूत हड्डी संरचना को बनाने में मदद करता है। उच्च तांबे का स्तर हड्डियों और जोड़ों के लचीलेपन को बनाए रखने में मदद करता है। काजू में पाए जाने वाले "विटामिन के" हड्डियों को कड़ा करके स्वस्थ हड्डियों को बनाए रखने में मदद करता है, जो ऑस्टियोपोरोसिस और कंकाल विकृति जैसी बिमारिओं को रोकता है ।

6. तंत्रिकाओं के लिए काजू के लाभ: इसमें मौजूद मैग्नीशियम हड्डियों की सतह पर संग्रहित हो जाता है और कैल्शियम को तंत्रिका कोशिकाओं में प्रवेश करने से रोकता है।

7. वजन घटाने में मदद करता है: काजू की उच्च ऊर्जा घनत्व और आहार के तंतुओं का उच्च स्तर है, दोनों ही अगर सीमित मात्रा में खाए जाएं तो वजन प्रबंधन के लिए सहायता करते हैं।

 

काजू के नुकसान अतः काजू को कम मात्रा में खाने से बहुत स्वस्थ हो सकता है, परंतु अगर बड़ी मात्रा में खाया जाए तो कई दुष्प्रभाव भी उत्पन्न हो सकते हैं। जैसे कि:

1. भार बढ़ना: काजू में काफी कैलोरी होती हैं इसलिए वजन बढ़ा सकता हैं।

2. एलर्जी: कुछ लोगों को काजू से एलर्जी होती है। एलर्जी मुंह और गले में पित्ती, चकत्ते, खुजली पैदा कर सकती है।

3. रक्तचाप बढ़ना: बड़ी मात्रा में काजू उपभोग करने से सोडियम तेजी से बढ़ सकता है, जो आपके रक्तचाप को बढ़ा सकता है।

4. सिरदर्द: यदि आप सिर दर्द और माइग्रेन से पीड़ित हैं, तो काजू से बचें। इस में मौजूद एमिनो एसिड सिरदर्द पैदा कर सकता है।

Oral Health Complications During Pregnancy

Oral Health Complications During Pregnancy

Oral Health Complications During Pregnancy

Recent findings have reported that oral bacteria and their by-products can possibly pass the placental barrier keeping oral health at prime importance during pregnancy. An awareness related to oral health during pregnancy cannot be neglected or avoided in order to minimize the complications.

This article focuses on few points related to the necessity of oral health during pregnancy. 

Pregnancy comes with many responsibilities making expecting mothers more concerned about their health. However, many pregnant women may not be aware of oral health and its effect on the developing child. Negligence of oral health is quite common during pregnancy due to lack of alertness of oral hygiene and its effect on systemic health.

Moreover, pregnancy discomforts like frequent bouts of nausea, increased physical demands, weight gain or certain dental problems like pregnancy gingivitis or inflammation of gums may be dangerous to developing fetus.  

Risk of oral problems during pregnancy:-

Few common oral problems associated with pregnancy are as follows. 

Pregnancy Gingivitis: 

Hormonal changes during pregnancy leads to pregnancy gingivitis. It is a condition of bleeding gums, redness. Moreover inflammation, swelling and tenderness are also observed. Ignorance of such problems may lead to serious gum disease.  Frequent cleaning can avoid such dental issues. Progesterone levels are elevated during pregnancy which stimulates the production of prostaglandins and leads to inflammation of blood vessels in gums.

Tooth Decay:

Diet during pregnancy is of high importance. It is designed to nourish both mother and unborn baby. Diet rich in carbohydrates actually increases the risk of tooth decay. The morning sickness increases acid secretion in the mouth which is harmful to enamel. 

Pregnancy tumors: 

Overgrowth of tissue on gums in pregnant women are called as pregnancy tumors. They are noncancerous and generally observed in the second trimester of the gestation period. It is nothing but swollen gums between teeth. The bleeding and reddening of gums observed in such conditions.  

Periodontal disease and preterm birth:

Untreated gum disease or periodontal problems can development periodontitis characterized by inflammation and infection of the gums and supporting structures of the teeth. 

This ultimately leads to loss of supporting material and finally the teeth themselves. 

A study result has revealed that there is a relation between preterm birth and presence of gum diseases in the pregnant women. The reason is not yet known. 

However, research study findings have evidence that oral bacteria or their byproducts can pass placental barrier. This initiate inflammatory response leading to preterm birth. 

Another correlation exists between the gum disease and the increased rate of pre-eclampsia, a condition of high blood pressure during pregnancy. The positive correlation suggests that gum disease may cause stress to the blood vessels of the mother, placenta and the fetus.

The basic periodontal therapies like oral hygiene instructions, scaling, root planing and prophylaxis can substantially decrease the level of prostaglandin responsible for inflammatory response. 

The regular treatment and follow-up in pregnant women can maintain good oral health and minimize the risk of preterm birth. 

Dental treatment during pregnancy: 

The dental procedures mostly include the use of X-rays and use of anesthesia. In the case of pregnancy, these procedures can be used with precaution. 

Therefore, before sitting on dental chair patient should declare her pregnancy to the physician. Untreated dental infections can harm fetus as well as the mother. 

The emergency situations request use of dental radiographs which can’t wait. The radiation of dental x-ray is generally very low and precaution is always taken for lowest radiation exposure. A leaded apron including collar, shields can be used to prevent abdominal exposure to the x-ray radiation. 

Use of dental X-ray is not at all contraindicated in pregnancy when used with precaution. 

The use of local anesthesia is also not contraindicated in the pregnancy. 

A clinical trial result showed that there is no harm in the use of local anesthetics during pregnancy. It is not linked with increased risk for major medical problems like cerebral palsy, cleft lip and heart defect in newborns. 

The medication prescribed during dental treatment mainly includes local anesthetics, analgesics, and antibiotics. Most of them can be used with safety precautions. Each drug has its own pregnancy category which should be considered during its use. 

The antibiotic like tetracycline can permanently cause discoloration of developing teeth.  

Prevention: 

Dentists can educate patients with following points to avoid problems associated with oral hygiene. 

  • The patient should declare the pregnancy to  the Dentist 
  • Follow routine oral checkup. 
  • Undergo all elective and emergency procedures. 
  • Follow good oral hygiene practice ask for a better toothpaste.
  • In the case of morning sickness avoid sweets and snacks which increase the risk of tooth decay. 
  • Have healthy and balanced diet. 

Awareness of oral health during pregnancy is a must to avoid complications.

Lybrate-user, this medicine is to make you produce more of eggs. And ideally this medicine should be taken under doctor's guidance and ultrasound monitoring of the eggs is also reuired which is called follicular monitoring. That ll give you a better result for pregnancy because you ll come to when your egg is mature and when it is ruptured. So you get more precise time for intercourse.

Lmp was 24.2. 16 but after taking a heavy dose of hormonal medicine that is also used to make heavy periods lighter. You will get a delayed cycle for sure if pregnancy test is negative now, but do not take more hormones to stimulate the cycle, as it is a routine practice to do so, do not take any tensions / stress -another common factor for delay in cycle. By the way feb had 29 days!

I am 24 Year, recently I got marry but in started my periods, periods are irregular. But in few days I checked from the gynac for this problem.

MBBS, DGO, MD, Fellowship in Gynae Oncology
Gynaecologist, Delhi
It is not so the one who has pcos will have infertility as well. Pcos is basically a lifestyle disorder with hormonal imbalance, it does not have complete cure, but it can be managed with lifestyle changes, such as start doing some exercise daily, healthy diet intake without skipping meals, avoid coffee, take fruits, vegetable and dairy products.

I have irregular periods that is 60 and 65 days cycle and I have extra facial growth of hair is der any relation between these and what is the best medicine I could use for this.

MD (Hom)
Homeopath, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, generally if you are getting your periods with a gap of 20 day minimum to 40 days maximum then we count as regular periods. But your periods are with a gap of 60-65 days which we call it as irregular periods. Its due to many reasons like pcos, hormonal imbalances, due to hypothyroidism, over weight, lack of physical exercises, sedentary lifestyle. Due to that reason your having the extra facial hair growth. But for very few people this extra facial hair comes as like inherited factor. But any way come to my private consultation I will help you with homoeopathic medicines which will cure symptoms permanently with out any side effects.

Complications and Treatment of Endometriosis

MS, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Noida
Complications and Treatment of Endometriosis

An often painful condition usually involving the bowel, ovaries or the tissue lining the pelvis, endometriosis is characterized by the abnormal growth of the endometrial tissue beyond the premises of your uterus or your pelvic region. The endometrium, in fact, functions perfectly normal with each menstrual cycle, but because of it being displaced, it cannot exit the body and consequently gets trapped.

Besides causing severe pain and distress, endometriosis can also adversely affect fertility. When the ovaries get involved, certain cysts known as endometriomas tend to develop which often result in the formation of scar tissues and adhesions.

Complications associated with it

  1. Infertility: Impaired fertility is the most common kind of complication arising from endometriosis, with approximately one-third to one-half women having problems with pregnancy. During endometriosis, the fallopian tube gets obstructed, thereby restricting the union of the egg and sperm.
  2. Ovarian cancer: Women with endometriosis are more likely to suffer from ovarian cancer. Moreover, they are also more susceptible to acquiring endometriosis related adenocarcinoma, which is another variant of cancer, but a comparatively rarer phenomenon.

How best to treat it?

Depending upon how severe your symptoms are, endometriosis can be treated via the use of medications or through the advent of surgery.

  1. Pain medications: Certain medications, including pain relievers and anti-inflammatory drugs, are particularly useful in providing relief to painful menstrual cramps.
  2. Hormone therapy: Undergoing hormonal therapy can help ward off or reduce the pain of endometriosis, but it should be kept in mind that it is only a temporary fix and that symptoms might reoccur. Hormonal therapies include:
    • Hormonal contraceptives
    • Medroxyprogesterone
    • Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (Gn-RH) agonists and antagonists
    • Danazol
  3. Conservative surgery: This can either be done through laparoscopy or, in more extensive cases, through traditional abdominal surgery.
  4. Assisted reproductive techniques: These include in-vitro fertilization, and are sometimes more preferable over conservative surgery.
  5. Hysterectomy: This is usually done in more severe cases of endometriosis whereby ovaries are also removed with uterus and cervix
