After having sex for 3 years now I am facing problem in my periods. From last one year I am not in any sexual relationship but still I am having periods for only 2 days. Due to this I am getting fat. Or will I get any troubles in pregnancy?

Hello, Having sex wouldn't land you in any problem related to your menses. It's something related to your internal reason, so get blood (for CBC) tested and an ultrasound (pelvis) done. Share the reports with me along with rest of the symptoms associated with it. Medication: For the time being, start taking homoeopathic medicines - Schwabe's Five Phos. and Alfaalfa Tonic - both for 3 times a day for 1month. Revert me back with the reports.

I do not have much idea of accupuncture therapy, but im sure its a slow procedure. Being a ivf specialist I can advice you to take necessary actions soon if you r diagnosed with a low amh. Take treatment according to your complete hormonal analysis by an infertility expert.

Evening is the best time for exercise. After exercise, you can take apple, guava or papaya or any sugar free low calorie drink. In the morning, you should wake up at 6 o clock, go for exercise at 6.30 am and take breakfast at 9.00am.

Hi Ms. Lybrate-user, ankylosis spondylisis is autoimmune condition can affect fertility, high risk of abortion, will next extra care while planning for pregnancy. Regarding baby it can be genetically transmitted to baby but having chances 30-40%. Option will be either go for ivf with pgd or natural pregnancy followed by early pregnancy test to see baby is normal or not.

Is liposuction a good option for 24 years 5.1 feet gal with over sized hips a good option. Do we have any other option.

Is liposuction a good option for 24 years 5.1 feet gal with over sized hips a good option. Do we have any other option.
For 5.1 feet you need to reduce only 10 kgs + from 65 kgs now. It will not be difficult to inculcate healthy habits now at age 25 which are sort of lifestyle modifications for heart health also. I will not advice surgery to reduce 10 kgs only. If you have not tried diet + exercise, start now. If you feel that hips are oversized, they will get in proportion as the weight sheds. Try walks, cycling, swimming, steady cycle at home & exercising while watching tv in privacy of your home (any one of above or all of above) yoga as meditation and also as a stretching exercise. Dieting is simple and you can do it minus any special diet charts. Give up sugar and fats. Take simple proteins which are nourashing and filling too-a glass of toned milk/ katori of curd/ assorted nuts/ dry roasted chane/ boiled egg/ lassi minus sugar and fats. Eat as much as you like-every seasonal vegetable and fruit-never mind the sugar in them, it is healthy sugar. Eat one full meal of roti daal chaawal. Reduce intake of salt as it leads to water retention. Take juice of fresh lemon + spoon of honey + glass of warm water everyday on empty stomach. Drink 2 spoons of apple cider vinegar with juice or a spoon of honey with water. Do write back after a month, weight reduction will be @ 5 kgs /month, may stabalise for some time followed by rapid decline in weight till you reach your target of 50-55 kgs to look and feel healthy.

Hi, during very early pregnancy urine pregnancy test can be negative so you should go for blood test- beta - hcg to detect pregnancy. However if blood test is also negative it means you are not pregnant & should wait for spontaneous onset of period.

Best contraceptive is oral contraceptive pills like novelon, to be taken for 21 days in a month. If has maximum efficacy. If you do not want to take any tablets then copper t is the next best option for u, once you put it and forget it. No need to take tablets every day. There is no such pill that is once in a month. Injection dmpa is there once in 3 months, but it causes lots of irregular menses.

I am trying to conceive since 1 yr. My husband stays out. Last month I had almost skipped my periods fr 28 days. But on 29th I got my periods. Is it a good sign or I need to consult a doc. I never skipped so long. I am not taking any pills other than thyronorm 25 mg. Pls help.

Thyronorm 25 is a mild dose for low thyroid. It doesn't cause infertility. Get semen test done for husband. Since he stays out for many days, may be this is the reason for not conceiving if period is delayed once only, ignore. It can be due to stress of not having a baby get checked by ultrasound anyway get back here with reports for more guidance.

Bathing Soap vs. Body Wash: What's Better When You Take a Shower?

Bathing Soap vs. Body Wash: What's Better When You Take a Shower?

Bathing soap vs. Body wash: what's better when you take a shower?

The most important part of skincare is keeping your skin cleansed and fresh. But before that, it is imperative to find the right product for the same. Skin type varies from person to person, and hence finding skincare goods most suited to your skin makes all the difference.

Bathing habits directly affect the quality of your skin, which involves picking the appropriate cleanse; i. E. Choosing between a body soap and body wash. Each has a different set of characteristics and comes with its own set of advantages and disadvantages. Let's find out which one is better for your skin.

Why you should choose bathing soap bar:

  •  it is more effective in removing dirt through deep cleansing
  •  it is suited to skin that is excessively oily in nature as it contains ingredients that are highly effective in stripping off excess oil from the skin


Why you should not choose bathing soap bar:

  •  it tends to strip the skin of its natural oils and moisture, making it dry and flaky
  •  it is unhygienic in case of sharing between individuals as soaps tend to accumulate the dirt from your skin due to direct body contact

Reasons to pick a body wash:

  •  it has a very mild and gentle effect on the skin in comparison to soaps
  •  it keeps the skin moisturized by preserving natural oils
  •  it is more hygienic than bar soaps in case of interpersonal sharing
  •  it is the most suitable option for dry skin

Reasons to ditch a body wash:

  •  it contains a large amount of artificial additives and preservatives that can do more harm to your skin than good, giving rise to allergic reactions in some cases

So, who's the winner of the two?

You must certainly base the choice on what's best for your skin type. Body soap is more compatible with oily skin while dry skin is better suited for body wash. A body wash, however, is much more gentle on your skin.

'consult'.

I'm asking this question on behalf of my wife and child. Our baby is three months old and she is facing a nipple confusion due to which my wife is facing a low BM. We had our daughter on July. It was a c-section delivery. After tat our daughter was admitted in NICO for 5 days due to bilirubin. He's health became complicated and she lost weight. My wife was breastfeeding her but prid was not gaining much weight. So our pediatrician advised us to get her to bottle milk. (Similac advanced stage 1). Pls advice. What can be done to make sure our baby is breastfeeding again and is it possible to increase the BM. Cause she is really stressed and worried about the baby's health.

Introducing a bottle with nipple will lead to nipple confusion and breast refusal.The tension and anxiety to feed the baby will further interfere with mother's milk let down.First the mother should relax and feed the baby at her breast as often as is demanded.and stop using bottle and nipple.Use a katori and spoon instead.Slowly the baby will stop taking top milk and prefer to feed at the breast.It would be useful to take the guidance of a competent lactation consultant in your area.This is a slow but successful method.
