If you are breastfeeding, chance is very low but if not breastfeeding it is little higher chance. Best is to do urine pregnancy test after a week and also get knowledge about all family planning methods to choose and implement one.

1] morning sickness[ vomiting in pregnancy] is caused due to less blood sugar level in the morning. Take some glucose biscuit on the bed on awakening before getting out of bed. This will give you relief. 2] if you can not eat enough at a time then take small frequent meals. Do not remain empty stomach for more then 3 hrs. 3] take sips of glucose water three or four times in a day. 4] eat one apple daily for betterment of baby. 5] now you should start calcium supplement if you can not drink milk.

Nothing to worry , because of hormonal imbalance only you are gaining more weight and periods are irregular. Homoeopathy is the best treatment to cure this problem permanently. Spent 15-20 mins for regular walk and take bottle gourd juice along with medicines. You may consult.

Hello Mr. Lybrate-user. Your mother is suffering from post surgery lymphedema. 1. Though it is difficult to cure this condition but certainly there are ways to minimize the lymphedema by proper exercises and use of compression sleeves. I can demonstrate you some exercises if you choose to discuss with me on (lybrate). 2. You can consult a physiotherapist (a doctor with md in physiotherapy) for this problem. 3. Compression sleeves can help to reduce the swelling. To prescribe the exact one, I need to know the measurement of your mother's right hand from the shoulder tip and if possible, a clear picture of the right arm with swelling. This will help me to prescribe the exact size and pressure required for the compression sleeves.

I am 25yr female and 4 months pregnant. Have been having heavy vaginal bleeding since 2months. Scan says placenta is 2cm above cervix. Advised bed rest till my delivery. Does it set right later in pregnancy and what care should I take now?

Some women have light bleeding or spotting very early in pregnancy? near the time their period is due? and they may mistake that for a period. No one knows what causes this. Some experts have suggested it might be" implantation bleeding" caused by the fertilized egg burrowing into the blood-rich lining of the uterus.

5 Super Brain Drinks That Boost Your Memory

5 Super Brain Drinks That Boost Your Memory

Beet juice: apart from being a nutritional powerhouse, beet juice is a great source of nitric acid. The latter helps with blood flow in the body. A smooth blood flow, on the other hand, helps the brain in functioning properly. A study has found that people who consume beet juice have an increased circulation in the white matter resulting from an increased brain activity. This juice is sweet in taste and can be consumed every alternate day.

Berry smoothies: acai is a fruit which has a south african origin and hits the top of the list when it comes to brain assisting food. It increases the flow of the blood and dilates the blood vessels. However, this is extremely expensive. Berries also have a similar effect on the brain, but they are less powerful in nature. What can be done is to mix a little ingredient of acai in frozen berries juice and drink the same every day. Frozen berries retain the freshness and the nutritional benefits. This drink will improvise your brain and increase blood flow in the body.

Pomegranate juice: pomegranate is a great antioxidant and it very aptly limits the free radicals from damaging the brain cells. Antioxidants are also credited with increased blood flow and protection of the heart. A healthy cardiovascular system is synonymous to an increased brain function. What is surprising is the fact that pomegranate has more antioxidant content compared to red wine and green tea. Pomegranate juice can be consumed daily during the morning or afternoon.

Carrot juice: carrot is known for its healthy components that are beneficial for the eyes. Recent studies have revealed that they are great for the brain too. Like other colored vegetables, they are a great source of antioxidant and have a high content of beta-carotene. Carrot juice can reduce the inflammation of the brain cells and improve memory. Carrot juice is not at all bitter and the same can be consumed every alternate day after your meal.

Cocoa: a harvard study revealed that two cups of cocoa on a daily basis greatly helps a person in improving memory. Cocoa contains flavanols that keep the blood pressure normal and relaxes the blood vessel linings. Cocoa is also known to be a great antioxidant agent that limits the free radical to affect the brain cells. Cocoa should not be overloaded with sugar and should be consumed hot before starting your day.

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'.

Introduction to Prenatal, Intranatal and Postnatal Care

MS- Gynaecology, MBBS

Introduction to Prenatal, Intranatal and Postnatal Care

There are three stages of caring for an expecting mother: prenatal, intranatal, postnatal care. This is essential to ensure smooth pregnancy and labour and to keep the mother healthy after giving birth. This care is a combined effort between the doctor and the expectant couple. Here are a few things to keep in mind if you are expecting an addition to your family.

Prenatal care from the moment you realize that you are pregnant, a woman must start taking extra care of her body. This reduces the risks in your pregnancy and at the time of labour. But even before planning a pregnancy, it is important that couples should consult with the doctor, in order to avoid any complications in future. Thus, you should ensure that regular check up not just during the pregnancy, but also before the pregnancy is equally important, so that your doctor can rule out complications arising due to factors, such as Thalassemia, Thyroid, Blood Sugar and PCOS, etc.

The main objectives of prenatal care are:

  • To maintain the health of the mother
  • Detect high risk cases
  • Foresee complications and find ways to prevent them
  • Reduce anxiety associated with delivery

Thus, an important part of prenatal care is to visit your gynaecologist regularly. These visits will be scheduled according to your age and stage of pregnancy. A few other points to keep in mind are:

  • Stop smoking and stay away from passive smoking as well
  • Stop drinking alcohol
  • Avoid contact with toxic chemicals like insecticides etc.
  • Ensure your vaccination is up to date
  • Avoid x-rays
  • Do not start or stop any medication without informing your doctor first
  • Eat healthy food and drink plenty of water
  • Exercise regularly for half an hour daily
  • Get plenty of rest
  • Avoid stress
  • Educate yourself about childbirth

Intranatal care refers to care given to the mother and baby at the time of delivery. The main objectives here are:

  • Cleanliness
  • Smooth delivery without injuring mother or baby
  • Preventing complications
  • Delivery resuscitation for the baby

There are a number of ways to deliver a baby and whatever you choose, you must ensure the presence of a doctor at your side, while delivering a baby. Your doctor will determine the position of the fetus and help you through your delivery.

Postnatal care is essential for 6-8 weeks after the baby is born. During this period, the mother goes through a number of physical and emotional changes and thus requires rest, nutrition and vaginal care. The main objectives here are:

  • Prevent postpartum complications
  • Restore mother to optimal health
  • Ensure problem free breastfeeding

Sharing responsibility is essential for the health of the mother, after delivery. Get as much sleep as possible and pay attention to what you eat. Do not try and lose your pregnancy weight instantly. Schedule a checkup with your doctor six weeks after delivery to ensure your vagina has healed properly. Additionally abstain from intercourse at this time. With proper care, every stage of your pregnancy can be a beautiful experience.
