Hello this is not the time to worry regarding your sisters fertility as she is unmarried. But definitely we have to treat her for pcod. In the treatment of pcod instead of medicine we should mainly focus on weight reduction. Now she is taking metformin means in her body insulin resistance is already set in. We need to treat that. Then only her hormones will be in harmony with body organs and she will get normal menses. Pcod management can't be done at this platform it needs personal attention and care.

My wife is pregnant for 5 months. What are do's and don't's for a healthy baby she should follow.
Exercise/yoga during pregnancy exercise 1: walking is a safe exercise but wear non-slippery shoes with padded soles. 1. Exercise 2: do some'light' exercises as that will help your body and mind. Avoid postures that involve heavy use of abdominal muscles and backward bend. Exercise strengthens your abdominal and pelvic muscles which promotes an easy delivery. 2. While exercising, change your position slowly to avoid sudden jerks. Do not exercise if you are not feeling well or feel any pain. 3. Light yoga, meditation and breathing exercises like pranayam help immensely 4. Consult your doctor before you start exercising and especially if you have diabetes, heart disease or asthma. Folic acid during pregnancy 1. Folic acid vitamin is highly recommended as it reduces risk of brain/spinal cord defects. 2. Also helps in blood and protein production. It also helps in development of nervous system. 3. Extremely beneficial during early weeks of pregnancy- especially first three months. 4. Green leafy vegetables, peas, beans, nuts, orange juice, strawberry, banana, nuts, pulses. 5. Recommended dose of folic acid is about 0.4 mg (400 microgram) every day until you are 12 weeks pregnant. Essential vitamins during pregnancy: 1. Vitamin a: essential during 2nd trimester (4th to 6th months of pregnancy). Do not take supplements containing more than 3000 iu of vitamin a. Sources of vitamin a: (a) vegetables: carrot (gajar), potato (aaloo), tomato (tamaatar), cabbage (patta gobhi). (b) fruits: mango (aam), banana (kela), guava (amrood), papaya (papita). (c) food: whole wheat products, peanuts, yogurt (dahi), milk, butter and cheese. 2. Vitamin b6: especially essential during 2nd trimester (4th to 6th months of pregnancy).

(b) fruits: banana (kela), dry fruits/nuts, apricot (khubani), apple. (c) food: eggs, fish, beans, whole grains, milk, whole wheat bread and pulses (daal). 3.

(c) food: eggs, brown rice, fish, yogurt (dahi), milk and milk products like cheese, cow and soy milk food and essential minerals during pregnancy 1. Many woman feel that they need to eat for two as they are carrying a baby inside. This should not be the case and usually leads to weight gain after baby is delivered. You only need to increase your intake of iron, calcium, folic acid and essential vitamins. Avoid spicy and deep fried food. 2. Pregnancy is not the time for dieting as the pregnant mother and the baby may not get enough nutrients. 3. Emphasis should not be on over-feeding, but on having nutritious food. A normal woman needs about 1600-2200 calories a day and experts recommend not more than 300 calories extra for pregnant women. Special precautions from 4th month of pregnancy: 1. Proteins: especially essential during 3rd trimester (7th to 9th months of pregnancy). For growth, repair of muscle, skin, hair and body tissues. Protein deficiency leads to low immunity, hairfall, feeling of tiredness. Proteins are not stored in our body as any excess protein is converted to energy or fat. (a) major protein sources: egg white (white portion), milk, soybeans/soymilk, fish, cheese, tofu. (b) other protein sources: beans with wheat, nuts, curd, yogurt (dahi) 2. Carbohydrates our main source of energy. Stored in liver and muscles. Carbohydrates are used the most by our body duringexercise. Hence, it is important during pregnancy to consume a diet rich in carbohydrates. (a) instant/rapid carbohydrates energy sources: banana, milk, sweets, sugarcane juice. (b) slow carbohydrates energy sources: beans, bread, cereals, potato, pulses, rice. 3. Iron: especially essential during 2nd trimester (4th to 6th months of pregnancy). Helps in production of haemoglobin and transportation of oxygen to blood cells. 1. Largest mineral found in our blood which also helps in producing energy. 2. If taking iron and vitamin c supplements, do not take them at the same time but after a gap of about 3 hours. Taking vitamin c tablet helps in absorbing iron. Sources of iron: 1. Vegetables: spinach, dark green leafy vegetables, lentils (daal). 2. Fruits: avocados (makhanphal), peach (adau), pear (nashpati), pumpkin (kaddu), raisin (kishmish), pomegranate (anaar). 3. Food: eggs, fish, meat, cereals, almonds (badam), whole wheat bread, soybean. 4. Calcium 1. Helps form strong bones, teeth, healthy gums, muscle growth and prevents muscle cramps. 2. Taking a small dose an hour before bedtime helps achieve sound sleep. Sources of calcium: 1. Vegetables: cabbage, dark green leafy vegetables, broccoli, figs (anjeer), flax seeds (san beej). Food: eggs, milk, dairy products, yogurt (dahi), almonds (badam), soybeans/soymilk. Dietary risks 1. Stay hydrated: dehydration increases risk of miscarriage. So drink at least 2 litres of fluids every day. Water, fresh fruit juices, soups that are low in salt, milk (low or no fat) and soy milk are best fluid options. 2. Do not have excessive papaya as it sometimes may trigger a miscarriage. 3. Must wash all fruits and vegetables before eating to reduce chances of infection. 4. Avoid more than 2 cups of non-herbal tea/coffee in a day as caffeine may lead to miscarriage. 5. Avoid excess spices, frozen or high mercury sea food like oysters. Non dietary rissks 1. Avoid viral vaccines (measles, mumps, mmr), explosure to x-rays or close contact with microwave. 2.

I have a ovarian cyst due to which I got so many problems during my mensuration and lots of pain in abdomen can you tell me the reason why cysts are formed and I also have the problem of white discharge please suggest me what should I do?

MBBS, DGO, MD, Fellowship in Gynae Oncology
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Cysts are fluid-filled sacs that can form in the ovaries. They are very common. They are particularly common during the childbearing years. There are several different types of ovarian cysts. The most common is a functional cyst. It forms during ovulation when either the egg is not released or the sac -- follicle -- in which the egg forms does not dissolve after the egg is released. Most ovarian cysts will go away on their own. If you don't have any bothersome symptoms. Birth control pills may relieve the pain from ovarian cysts as they prevent ovulation, which reduces the formation of new cysts. Surgery is an option if the cyst doesn’t go away, grows, or causes you pain.

Fix These 3 Common Posture Blunders that can Permanently Damage Your Body

Fix These 3 Common Posture Blunders that can Permanently Damage Your Body
Improve Your Posture Before it’s too Late

A good posture makes you stand tall. The right body posture is crucial for a healthy and strong, disease-free body. A correct body posture can help to alleviate all kinds of problems that might arise due to the practice of wrong posture such as chronic neck pain, back pain, and headache among others. Here’s how to avoid some of the common posture blunders:

1. Hunchback

You may know that sitting for long hours is bad for your health, but sitting hunched over the computer screen is especially harmful for your spine. When you’re in this posture, the chest muscles of your body tighten causing the top of the spinal column to form a C-shape. This can lead to pain in the back, shoulder and neck. To prevent your spine from curving in this manner, you can do the bhujangasana pose to strengthen your back.

2. Forward head

Likewise, sitting in a stooped manner in front of the computer can cause the problem of forward head and associated neck pain. Performing head nods on a daily basis can provide respite from the ache. For this, move your head towards the neck until your chin touches your neck. Hold on to this position for 5 seconds before going back to your original position. Repeat as needed.

3. Rounded shoulders

Intense training of the chest muscles or typing while not sitting straight can cause your shoulders to swivel forward, leading to rounded shoulders. This can prevent your arms from working at their full capacity while running or hamper your breathing ability while performing strenuous activities. One of the ways that you can fix this postural blunder is by doing some stretching exercises to relax your chest muscles.This workout can be easily done anywhere, as all you need is a doorway. Position your arms against one side of the doorway with your elbows bent at 90 degrees. Then, stretch your chest and shoulder muscles by placing your foot through the doorway. Hold the posture for about 30 seconds Whether your postural problem is mild or severe, it can affect your overall health and performance.

Wrong posture can cause you to experience skeletal system disorders such as kyphosis (outward curving of the spine) or lordosis (inward curving of the spine). If not corrected in time, the wrong body posture can also impact your self-confidence.

You do not gain weight due to irregular periods. No blood is accumulating inside your body which will make you put on weight. Rather, it is your weight gain which is creating a hormonal imbalance and causing irregular periods. Losing weight will help to regularize your cycle. Or else meet a gynaecologist for further treatment.

Pain During Pregnancy - 7 Ayurvedic Remedies that Can Treat it!

Pain During Pregnancy -  7 Ayurvedic Remedies that Can Treat it!

While pregnancy is a wonderful experience for most women, it also brings its fair share of troubles. Nourishing and developing another life inside your body could sometimes be a challenging experience. A lot of health issues can also arise due to it, such as back pain, feeling of fatigue, exhaustion and unbearable cramps. 

However, these can be easily controlled or reduced to ensure that pregnancy is a joyful experience if you take proper care of your body. Ayurvedic remedies to make your pregnancy a joyful experience:

  1. Food cravings should be favored: It is important to eat what you desire. During pregnancy, follow a well balanced diet containing a lot of proteins, starch and vegetables. After the fourth month, you should satisfy all your cravings which are more likely coming from the merging nutritional requirements of the developing baby.
  2. Balance energy: During pregnancy, it is important to keep a balanced nervous system. This should be done by consuming a diet of plant-based, processed foods along with whole and sprouted grains. Start eating freshly cooked food with olive and coconut oil. Avoid consuming leftover food.
  3. Avoid certain foods: Try to prevent consuming spicy hot foods, uncooked leafy vegetables and undercooked lentils and beans. These food products can cause gas. Avoid preservatives, chemical additives and artificial flavors as they can cause severe stomach aches.
  4. Right form of milk: Drink warm non-homogenized milk with ghee. Mix the ghee with one cup of milk everyday to boost the baby’s immunity.
  5. Ayurvedic oils: Pregnancy can also cause pain in the abdomen area. This can be reduced by massaging your belly with Ayurvedic oil. This calms down your nerves and also helps you relax. Sesame oil and lavender oil are two good choices for this.  
  6. Avoiding morning sickness: Sometimes morning sickness can occur from the sixth week of your pregnancy. Roast and grind cardamom seeds and eat a pinch of it each day. Sip ginger or fennel seed tea to reduce morning sickness.
  7. Exercise: Pregnancy can make you tired and feel exhausted easily. Practice yoga or go for a walk daily to feel energetic. This is also good for the development of the fetus. Meditation will also help reduce any form of stress and help you deal with the physical and psychological issues of pregnancy.

She won't start bleeding after taking the pill. As her date is on 19th, you have to wait till 19th for her to start bleeding. The possibility of pregnancy in the current scenario is very unlikely. So don't worry. If she doesn't bleed by 25th, further testing is advised.

It is a behavioral problem like sleep walking, during her sleep, she passes urine presuming going to toilet. Do not make her conscious, improve her general health, do not give her liquids 2 hours before sleeping, wake her up in night and tell her to pass urine. Reassure her that there are many girls who suffer like her but are cured minus medicines. Never make fun of her.
