What medications should I go for aborting 21 days old. What side effects? With what precautions? Can we provide iron tablet? Thanks.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Gurgaon
Hi Arnav. Termination of pregnancy upto 9 weeks can be done safely and effectively. However the correct medicine taken in correct dosage and technique is very important. Many people do not follow the recommended technique to take the medicine and end up having incomplete abortions, heavy bleeding which at times require hospitalisation. So please take the medicines only under medical supervision.

Health Benefits Of Pumpkin seeds

M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Gurgaon
Health Benefits Of Pumpkin seeds

1.Heart Healthy Magnesium

One-quarter cup of pumpkin seeds contains nearly half of the recommended daily amount of magnesium, which participates in a wide range of vitally important physiological functions, including the creation of ATP (adenosine triphosphate, the energy molecules of your body), the synthesis of RNA and DNA, the pumping of your heart, proper bone and tooth formation, relaxation of your blood vessels, and proper bowel function.

2.Zinc for Immune Support

Pumpkin seeds are a rich source of zinc (one ounce contains more than 2 mg of this beneficial mineral). Zinc is important to your body in many ways, including immunity, cell growth and division, sleep, mood, your senses of taste and smell, eye and skin health, insulin regulation, and male sexual function.

3.Prostate Health

Pumpkin seeds have long been valued as an important natural food for men's health. This is in part because of their high zinc content, which is important for prostate health (where it is found in the highest concentrations in the body), and also because pumpkin seed extracts and oils may play a role in treating benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH, or enlarged prostate). Research suggests that both pumpkin seed oil and pumpkin seed may be particularly beneficial in supporting prostate health.

4.Anti-Diabetic Effects

Animal studies suggest that pumpkin seeds may help improve insulin regulation and help prevent diabetic complications by decreasing oxidative stress.

5.Heart and Liver Health

Pumpkin seeds, rich in healthy fats, antioxidants and fibres, may provide benefits for heart and liver health, particularly when mixed with flax seeds

I am suffering from itching of vagina I applied some antibacterial cream but no relief tell me what I do.
Dear lybrate-user, vaginal itching can be due to infections, irritants, allergies etc. It is important to look for any associated vaginal discharge. Fungal infection by candida and bacterial vaginosis are important causes of genital itching and vaginal discharge. So please consult a gynaecologist or dermatologist to get the correct treatment. It is also important to evaluate and treat your partner as well. Hope this helps. Take care.

Nothing to worry, hormonal imbalance is the common causative factor for irregular periods. Better to take homoeopathy medicines to regularize your periods. Are you having any thyroid problem?

Why Spacing Your Pregnancies Is Good For You?

Certification in IVF & Infertility, Diplomate Gynae Laparoscopy, Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (MRCOG), MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Ghaziabad
Why Spacing Your Pregnancies Is Good For You?

Spacing pregnancies is an essential part of family planning. Although it rests on individual preferences, there are certain psychological and economical factors associated with it.

Factors That Decide The Spacing Of Pregnancy-

  1. The mother’s childbearing abilities, general health and fertility.

  2. The family’s income and financial condition.

  3. The choice to have more than one child.

  4. Pressure from the family members to go through another pregnancy.

  5. The child’s wish to have sibling/s.

Risk Associated With Close Consecutive Pregnancies-

  1. Health risks, especially in case of a very recent C-section. The mother may not be able to recover fully from the physical or mental stress of pregnancy,

  2. None of the children receive wholesome attention from parents as both will be very young. This may create resentment in both children.

  3. The second baby may have very low birth weight.

  4. Depletion of nutrients in the mother’s body. This can happen in case the mother has been breastfeeding recently.

  5. There can be genital inflammation during the second childbirth and labour.

  6. There are researches that show the increasing rate of autism in the second born child who the mother delivers within a short span, after the first pregnancy.

Risks Associated With Pregnancies Spaced Too Far Apart-

  1. Sometimes there are risks of premature babies and low birth weight.

  2. Some mothers may be slightly unwilling to go through the entire process of bringing up a child, as it is emotionally and physically very demanding.

  3. It might pose some birth complications if the mother does not have age on her side.

Besides these, spacing out pregnancies may actually be beneficial because it provides the first child enough love and care. Also, at a certain age, the child is mature enough to welcome a new member. He or she may even want to share responsibilities with parents in looking after the young baby. In this way, none of the children are denied attention. Also, once a woman goes through the entire experience of motherhood, she will find it easier to go through the process once more, without panicking. Parents are also able to take up the responsibility of the second child with more maturity as they are better informed. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

Dear, you have to be gentle while making love. Be sure at any time she did not contact infection by mishandling or sucking the nipple. Inflamed breast gives pain on touching or fondling. If breast is very tender on touch she may need a course of antibiotics, after you have seen the doctor.

You cannot predict exact date of ovulation in case of irregular menses. Ovulation commonly occurs 14 days prior to next period. Cervical fluid resembling egg whites is the sign of ovulation. If you track basal body temperature ; then there is rise in temperature just after ovulation. You may get slight spotting or abdominal bloating or pain in lower abdomen at one side. If you want accurate dates then you can do follicular study (ultrasound) from 10 th day of menses. Consult your doctor for medicines for irregular menses.

Health benefits of Cashew

Cashew nuts or cajus as we know them in India are widely loved and used in almost every course of food, from starters and snacks to the main course to dessert. Apart from being a delectable food, it also has numerous health benefits. Few of them are:

1. When compared to other nuts, they contain low fat content which is in the form of oleic acid. Oleic acid is good for the heart. Cashews also happen to be free of cholesterol and have anti-oxidants which help keep the heart healthy.

2. Magnesium present in the cashews helps them to prevent the rise in blood pressure.

3. One major benefit of cashew nuts is that they help fight cancer. They have high copper content and also have flavonoids called proanthocyanidins which help fight cancer cells in colon cancer.

4. The copper in cashews helps in maintaining the right color of the hair.

5. Cashews have magnesium and calcium, both of which are important for bone health.

6. The magnesium in cashews ensures that there is enough magnesium on the bones' surface and calcium cannot enter the nerve cells, thus ensuring healthy nerves.

7. Cashews have selenium, magnesium, and copper which all act as antioxidants.

8. They help in growth, digestion, and development of the body.

9. Despite being considered fatty, cashews have good cholesterol. Despite popular belief, it is good to eat cashew at least once or twice a week.

10. The risk of developing gallstones reduces by one-fourth, with a daily intake of cashew nuts.
