May be she is not ready. Make her feel relax. Stimulate her vagina. When her vagina is wet than you have to enter your penis that too slowly.

Important Tips for Pregnant Women in Hindi - गर्भवती महिलाओं के लिए खास टिप्स

यदि आप गर्भवती होने के बारे में सोच रहे हैं - या आप गर्भवती हैं - तो आप शायद खुद की और बच्चे की देखभाल करने के बारे में मूलभूत जानकारी रखते होंगे। धूम्रपान न करें, शराब न पीएँ, उचित आराम प्राप्त करें। यहां अन्य सुझाव दिए गए हैं- विटामिन से लेकर व्यायाम तक, जो एक सुरक्षित और स्वस्थ गर्भावस्था सुनिश्चित करने में मदद कर सकता है।
1. अपने चिकित्सक या दाई से जल्द से जल्द मिलें: जैसे ही आप पाते हैं कि आप गर्भवती हैं, अपने आप को जन्मपूर्व देखभाल के लिए पंजीकृत करें। आपकी देखभाल का आयोजन जल्दी से शुरू होने का मतलब है कि आपको शुरुआत से ही स्वस्थ गर्भावस्था के लिए अच्छी सलाह मिलेगी। 
2. प्रीनेटल विटामिन लें: यहां तक कि जब आप गर्भ धारण करने की कोशिश भी कर रहे हैं, तो पहले से ही प्रीनेटल विटामिन लेना शुरू करने में समझदारी है। आपके बच्चे की न्यूरल कॉर्ड, जो मस्तिष्क और रीढ़ की हड्डी बन जाती है, गर्भावस्था के पहले महीने के भीतर विकसित होती है, इसलिए यह महत्वपूर्ण है कि आप प्रारंभ से ही आवश्यक पोषक तत्व प्राप्त करें, जैसे फोलिक एसिड, कैल्शियम और लोहा।
अगर इन्हे लेने से आपको विचित्र लगता है, तो रात को या हल्के नाश्ते के साथ लेने का प्रयास करें। इसके बाद खाने पर, चबाने वाली गम या चूसने वाली हार्ड कैंडी भी मदद कर सकते हैं। 
3. व्यायाम करें: यह आपके सामान्य स्वास्थ्य के लिए महत्वपूर्ण है और तनाव को कम करने में भी मदद कर सकता है। नियमित व्यायाम से आप अपना वजन नियंत्रित कर सकते हैं, रक्त परिसंचरण में सुधार कर सकते हैं, अपने मनोदशा को बढ़ा सकते हैं और बेहतर नींद पा सकते हैं। यह आपको गर्भावस्था के दौरान अपने जोड़ों पर तनाव के साथ सामना करने में भी मदद करता है। गर्भावस्था के लिए अच्छे अभ्यास में तेज चलना, तैराकी, एक्वैनाटल क्लासेस, योग, पायलट्स शामिल हैं।
4. अपने आप को शिक्षित करें: आपको न केवल प्रसूति और शिशु देखभाल के बारे में अधिक जानने का मौका मिलेगा, बल्कि आप विशिष्ट प्रश्न पूछ सकते हैं और किसी भी चिंता को दूर कर सकते हैं। 
5. केगेल का अभ्यास करें: केगेल पैल्विक फ्लोर की मांसपेशियों को मजबूत करते हैं, जो आपके मूत्राशय, आंत और गर्भाशय का समर्थन करते हैं। सही ढंग से किया गया, तो यह सरल अभ्यास आपके वितरण को आसान बनाने में मदद कर सकता है और बाद में असंयम से जुड़ी समस्याओं को रोक सकता है। 
6. अच्छा खाएं: एक स्वस्थ, संतुलित आहार खाने का प्रयास करें। ज्यादातर डॉक्टर गर्भावस्था के दौरान कैफीन को सीमित करने की सलाह देते हैं, क्योंकि इससे आपके और बच्चे पर हानिकारक प्रभाव पड़ सकते हैं। अधिक फल और सब्जियां खाएँ। प्रोटीन समृद्ध भोजन जैसे कि मछली, दुबला मांस, अंडे, सेम, नट या दालें खाएँ। 
विशेष रूप से मछली आपके बच्चे के लिए अद्भुत काम कर सकती हैं। मछली प्रोटीन, विटामिन डी, खनिज और ओमेगा -3 फैटी एसिड से भरा है, जो आपके बच्चे के तंत्रिका तंत्र के विकास के लिए महत्वपूर्ण हैं।
7. शराब न पीएँ: जब आप तेजी से शराब पीते हैं, तो यह आपके रक्त प्रवाह और नाल के माध्यम से आपके बच्चे तक पहुंचता है। पहले तीन महीनों के दौरान, शराब पीने से गर्भपात हो सकता है, जबकि तीसरे तिमाही में यह आपके बच्चे के मस्तिष्क के विकास को प्रभावित कर सकता है।
8. धूम्रपान न करें: गर्भावस्था के दौरान धूम्रपान आपके और आपके बच्चे के लिए गंभीर स्वास्थ्य समस्याएं पैदा कर सकता है। धूम्रपान समय से पहले जन्म, जन्म के वक़्त शिशु के वजन मे कमी, मरे हुए बच्चे, अचानक शिशु मृत्यु सिंड्रोम (एसआईडीएस) या "खाट पर मौत" का कारण बन सकता है। धूम्रपान करने से गर्भपात, एक्टोपिक गर्भावस्था और अपरा संबंधी अवखण्डन जैसी गर्भावस्था जटिलताओं की संभावना भी बढ़ती है।
9 अपने वजन पर खास ध्यान दें: पर्याप्त वजन न प्राप्त करने से बच्चे को कम वजन वाले जन्म का जोखिम हो सकता है, जो विकास की समस्याओं का एक प्रमुख कारण है। इसके अलावा, अतिरिक्त भार भी आप दोनों के लिए समस्याएं पैदा कर सकता है।

Peanuts - Are they good or bad for you?

Peanuts - Are they good or bad for you?

Peanuts are rich in monounsaturated fats, the sort of fat that is added to a healthy-heart diet. However, just as peanuts have loads of benefits, they come with certain disadvantages too. The advantages of peanuts are as follows:

  1. Peanuts are a source of antioxidants: Not only do peanuts contain oleic acid, but also the energizing fat found in olive oil and is a rich form of cell regeneration. The regeneration material is very helpful in avoiding many types of cancers. For example, as preventive agents, simmered peanuts do equal amount of recovery and regeneration as blackberries and strawberries. These are far more efficient than apples, carrots or beets.
  2. Peanuts are key to heart-health benefits: Just as peanuts are good cancer preventing agents, dangers of death from cardiovascular and coronary heart diseases can also be avoided with their help.
  3. Peanuts reduce risk of stroke based on preliminary animal studies: Resveratrol is a substance, which was initially found in red grapes and red wine. However, now it is also available in peanuts. This phytonutrient has been said to enhance the blood flow in the brain by as much as 30 percent. It enormously diminishes the danger of a stroke or a heart attack.

As mentioned earlier, just as peanuts have certain good qualities, they can be somewhat bad for the health as well. Following are some of the reasons:

  1. Peanuts can be an allergen: Peanuts are also considered as a standout amongst the most widely recognized food sensitivities for people. A lot of people have nut hypersensitivities so serious that even their breathing is disturbed with a little amount of a shelled nut. Their tongue starts getting numb and their skin starts swelling. Some people have an extremely increased allergy to peanuts and for them, it can even be fatal, if not treated immediately.
  2. Peanuts contain lectins: Peanuts, alongside different vegetables like soy, contain hostile substances called lectins. Lectins are sticky proteins found in numerous food items including vegetables. They serve as a bug. The stickiness and structure of lectins, however, makes them very difficult to process and digest.
  3. Peanuts contain inflammatory elements: The abnormal state of Omega-6 unsaturated fats that peanuts contain is quite dangerous. It is true that your body needs, both Omega-3 and Omega-6 unsaturated fats for a good health. The issue, in any case, is that the standard western eating routine is, to a great degree, high in Omega-6 unsaturated fats and low in Omega-3s. At the point when Omega-3 unsaturated fats are out of proportion with the Omega-6 fats (as frequently emerges in a standard Western eating routine) irritation, coronary illness, and other medical problems emerge. Therefore, a balanced diet is very important.

Hello, take hamamelis q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water every 2 hrly till the menses lasts. Visit a gynaecologist to get yourself examined to come to conclusion. And for rest of days, take five phos. And alfaalfa tonic. Take them thrice daily for 4 weeks and revert me back. Even after taking these medication, if there is no relief in the sufferings, need to get an ultrasound (pelvis) done.

MS-General Surgery, MBBS

You are not over weight. If your breasts are big and heavy, then first try good quality supporting bra and improvement of posture in sitting and standing. There is no medicine for reducing breasts. If you are still uncomfortable then go for reduction mammoplasty surgery by a plastic surgeon.

My friends having her periods. So that she is taking some capsules to reduce pain name of cipcal is Meftalspac. Is it good to take his capsules to control periods and pain. If any problem by taking them.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
She is suffering from dysmenorrhoea, which is very common. It should be treated initially with meftal spas (pain killer) tablets. If the pain is too severe it should be further investigated with ultrasound, to find out the exact cause. You could be suffering from endometriosis or ovarian cyst or fibroid.

Soya Foods Lowers Sperm Count

Soya Foods Lowers Sperm Count

1. Eating about half a serving a day of soya-based foods could lower a men's sperm count.

2. Look at the relationship between semen quality and a plant form of female sex hormone oestrogen known as phytoestrogen, which is plentiful in soya-rich foods

3. Researchers from britain analysed the intake of 15 soya-based foods in 99 men. They were asked how much and how often in the prior 3 months they had eaten soya-rich foods. The researchers divided the men in to groups according to the soya consumption levels. Men in the highest group on average ate half a serving per day. It was found that men in the highest intake category had 41 million sperm/ml less than men who ate no soya foods.

4. A normal sperm count ranges from 80 million and 120 million per ml, and a sperm count of 20 million per ml or below is considered low.

5. The associtation betwwen soya foods and lower sperm count was stronger in owerweight men.

6. This was attributed to the presence of higher levels of androgen-produced oestrogen in overweight men.

7. The finding suggest that soya foods could affect the male reproductive system, especially sperm production. However, more studies are needed to check whether soys food could cause infertility. (human reproduction, july 2008)

After 7 weeks of elective L. S.C. S lump has been developed in umbilical midline. I have done usg and reports saying minimal subcutaneous collect in suprapubic region and in infra umbilical midline. After 2 days of usg suddenly pus has been discharging from c section scar. I have reported all that my gynaecologist and they have given me antibiotics. Please suggest me what to do.

Hi Mukesh. It seems you have developed a sinus after c section site infection. Your scar site should be opened and the internally collected pus should be drained. With such severe infection, plain oral antibiotics will not be sufficient. injective antibiotics with daily would dressing would be needed otherwise this infection can become even worse. Please take appropriate help immediately.
