I am 25years and have missed my periods by 8 days. What should I do I tried the home pregnancy test and its negative.

Gynaecologist,
I am 25years and have missed my periods by 8 days. What should I do I tried the home pregnancy test and its negative.
You can repeat the test in a lab using the early morning urine sample. If two reports are negative, you are less likely to be pregnant. If you wish you may go to a gynecologist to get examined and the gynec may give you medications to get menses, after seeing your negative test. Home upt are generally not so sensitive or specific and hence a test done in lab is of more predictive value.

In majority of the cases irregular menses are accredited to hormonal imbalance, but in some cases it may be pathological and secondary to some pathology of ovaries mostly. Now if you want to regularized the menses then you must establish permanent balanced, first and this can be achieved only with homoeopathy, because in modern medicine we get only a hormonal support with a very temporary relief. But with homoeopathy you can strike the hormonal balance permanently which later on also give you regular menses even if you stop the medicine.

My wife is pregnant for 5 months. What are do's and don't's for a healthy baby she should follow.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
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). Sources (a) vegetables: carrot (gajar), peas (matar), potato (aaloo), spinach (palak), cabbage (patta gobhi), green leafy vegetables. (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. Vitamin c: especially essential during 2nd trimester (4th to 6th months of pregnancy). Sources of vitamin c: (a) vegetables: broccoli (hari phoolgobhi), cucumber, tomato, spinach (palak), lemon (nimbu), onion (pyaaz), peas (matar), green vegetables. (b) fruits: orange (santra), pineapple, mango, apple, grapes, banana, kiwi, lychee, papaya (papita), peach (adau), pear, plum (aloo bukhara), strawberry, lime juice. 4. Vitamin d:). Especially essential during 2nd trimester (4th to 6th months of pregnancy). Sources of vitamin d: (a) vegetables: sweet potato (shakkar kandi). One may take'cod liver oil' capsules or vit-d supplements. (b) food: fish, milk, soyabean powder, yogurt (dahi), butter, egg yolk (yellow portion of egg) and direct sunlight. 5. Vitamin b12 especially essential during 2nd and 3rd trimesters (4th to 9th months of pregnancy sources of vitamin b12: (a) vegetables: none. (b) fruits: none. (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. Visit your doctor at least thrice and prefer not to have more than 2 sonographies done over 9 months. 3. Avoid cigarette, junk food, alcohol till delivery as they may result in low birth weight or restrict development. 4. Gradually decrease your intake of caffeine/coffee. Avoid having too much oil or ghee. 5. Don't take very hot water baths or hot tub/sauna baths as they may alter your body temperature.

Beverages are not bad during menses but if not taking in excess. All carbonated drinks if taking in excess can cause gas formation. These can also lead to increase in weight. Take them in minimum quantity.

Hello Dr. My periods have come after 2.5 months of delivery (cesarean), what does it mean.

Hello Dr. My periods have come after 2.5 months of delivery (cesarean), what does it mean.
Hello- according to ayurveda monthly periods and milk in breast are inversely proportional to each other. Increase in ones production decreases the output of the other.(due to hormonal changes) >after delivery milk appears in females breast to fulfill the appetite of the new born baby hence the menses reduces or becomes irregular. >when you stop feeding milk completely (after 1 year) your menses will be regular as before so there's no need to worry about.

Hello. Pre menstrual pain can be easily resolved by following these simple steps. Kindly ask your wife to apply castor oil four drops on her umlical region and try to make it absorbed by rotating with your fingers in a click wise manner. You can add a bit of astafoieda. Kindly apply the oil in a warm state. Kindly conduct a sonography of abdomen to find out the status of her uterus and ovaries. Possibility of PCOS has to be ruled out. If she is suffering from PCOS, then you will be required to first get treated of it. In the mean time you can get your sperm count checked to be sure that the problem is not from your side. I hope for the best to you. Kindly give your feedback if you are satisfied by my advice. Feel free to contact personally for more advice. Tk care.
