Best is to do a Urine pregnancy test to confirm pregnancy and then take advice, if positive then Medicines can help you to abort, and if Negative, again there are medicines to induce the periods.

DGO, MBBS
Sexologist,
In early months, even up to 1-2 years, of sexual life many women fail to achieve orgasm. Too much anxiety also is one of the causes. Moreover physical conditions like diabetes, thyroid problem, high prolactin levels etc. Too are often involved, so do blood tests hb, tc, dc, fasting sugar, prolactin, tsh. She will know only when she get it. Also there are medicines which can help if you want then only - ask private question.

U should try for another 4 months. Have regular intercourse especially during mid cycle i. E. Approx 10 days after periods. Next 7 days have maximum chances of conception. If your wife is unable to conceive even after 6 months of regular unprotected intercourse. Then visit a gynaec for investigations. Don't waste time after that as ovarian reserve (total number of fertile eggs in ovaries) fall drastically after the age of 35 in females.

Menstrual flow decreases when there is anaemia. There are many other conditions also when menstrual flow decreases such as hormonal imbalance. At this stage I recommend you to have Hb test. Take tablet abhra loha if you r anaemic.

What to Eat When Pregnant and Don't Feel Well
During pregnancy you may have morning sickness, diarrhea, or constipation. You may find it hard to keep foods down, or you may feel too sick to even eat at all. Here are some suggestions:

Morning sickness: eat crackers, cereal, or pretzels before getting out of bed; eat small, frequent meals throughout the day; avoid fatty, fried, spicy, and greasy foods.

Constipation: eat more fresh fruit and vegetables. Also, drink 6 to 8 glasses of water a day.

Diarrhea: eat more foods that contain pectin and gums (two types of dietary fiber) to help absorb excess water. Examples of these foods are applesauce, bananas, white rice, oatmeal, and refined wheat bread.

Heartburn: eat small, frequent meals throughout the day; try drinking milk before eating; and limit caffeinated foods and beverages, citric beverages, and spicy foods.

At 10 weeks of pregnancy, abortion can not be done with medicines. It will be done surgically under anaesthesia. You can ask your doctor for mva procedure, which is the safest method for abortion.

Ginger: 9 Reasons Why You Should Know Adrak Ka Swaad

Ginger: 9 Reasons Why You Should Know Adrak Ka Swaad

Ginger or adrak, a staple spice of Indian household today, originated in the south-east Asia more than 5000 years ago. Back then, it was considered a medicine for all ailments. It contains a compound known as 'gingerol' that has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

Ginger has been used to combat the common cold in addition to being a taste enhancer in food and tea. But little do we know about the gamut of health benefits that it provides.

Here are some amazing health benefits of this wonder spice:

1. Boosts immunity

It cleans the body's sewage system thereby preventing the accumulation of toxins. Cut ginger into small pieces and put into a bowl of water and then boil for 8-10 minutes. Drink this herbal solution for 3-4 times a day, relieving you of the irritating coughs in addition to boosting your immunity. If you do not like the taste of it, stir some honey or lemon into it.

2. Helps in weight loss

Ginger also helps in promoting weight loss. It activates the body's metabolism and hence leads to burning of fat. Heat a cup of water till it boils, now add a small piece of ginger and keep it covered for five minutes. You can add lemon juice to taste. Drink this before breakfast for reaping maximum benefits.

3. Regulates blood pressure

Ginger acts similar to blood pressure controlling pills. It blocks the flow of calcium into heart cells which lowers blood pressure. Drink ginger tea before breakfast instead of popping the prescription pill.

4. Helps clear acne

The ginger extract helps in purification of blood. Extract ginger juice and store it in a refrigerator. Mix 2 tablespoon of ginger juice along with 2 tablespoons of honey and consume every morning on an empty stomach. This helps you get rid of a pimple, acne, and other skin disorders.

5. Lowers cholesterol

Consuming 2-3 grams of dry ginger every day has been associated with lowering cholesterol levels. Consuming ginger activates an enzyme that increases body's use of cholesterol. It also protects a diabetic person's organs such as liver and kidneys.

6. Aids in digestion

A good stomach is the sign of good health. A common problem among the mass is indigestion. Ginger is helpful in battling indigestion. Peel and cut the ginger into small pieces. Soak these in honey in a bottle and keep in sunlight for 10 days. Consume 2-4 pieces every morning.

7. Cures nausea

Chewing raw ginger is effective in treating nausea. Wash and peel ginger before cutting into small pieces. Chew these pieces throughout the day. You can also grab some snacks containing ginger.

8. Eases muscle pain

Heavy weight lifting at the gym often leads to muscle pain the following days. The anti-inflammatory property, attributed to sesquiterpenes such as zingiberene present in ginger, helps in reducing exercise-induced muscle pain if taken consistently over a period of time. One teaspoon of dried ginger or 2 teaspoons of chopped ginger can be added to meals daily.

9. Relieves joint pain

The anti-inflammatory property of the ginger helps in fighting osteoarthritis- a condition of joint pain and stiffness. Applying ginger oil topically on the joints lowers the pain and also eliminates the necessity to pop pain killers.

It should be noted here that ginger should not be given to children under the age of 2 years. For children over 2 years, you should consult your doctor to determine the right dose. Adults should not consume more than 4 grams per day.

With so much to offer, ginger can safely be tagged as a superfood that you should make a part of your daily diet.

Masturbation

MBBS, MD - Community Medicine
Sexologist, Ranchi
Masturbation

For many it seems the act of masturbation is like a gullible crime! Please take it as a normal activity and an important one! Problem is in my opinion the false belief created by some mythological beliefs that masturbation will deplete your resources etc! Sex and its related changes are very essential for the bare survival of human race! As young males and females grow they start experiencing it. And hence the urge to copulate! but imagine the problems it will create if their are no restrictions, and no protection. So to experience the fun just masturbate! once or twice daily is very common fir young individuals and its a healthy thing to do. Use clean hands. But as in everything use caution. Excess if everything is bad. I have heard boys saying they masturbate eight times a day! as of now no document or study is available which is able to link any harm with that. But pyschologically speaking it implies that you are thinking too much about sex! and ultimately it will hamper your daily life and as one thing leads to another it will ultimately ruin your day! so decision is yours. My advice sex is important but not the only thing!

Condom is the safest option of contraception and the second option is you taking oral contraceptives pills and pulling penis out before ejaculation is not safe as far as pregnancy is concerned.

When mucus is not there. No blood can also been seen. No pain. Huge hunger. No vomit .colonoscopy report negative (means normal. Stool RE/OBT negative. What it could be? I had the same issue once every year in 2009/2010/2011/2016 (jan. But this time it is not healing. No tiredness. No issue in sleep. But still persisting. GI/homeopathy done -- ceboz 400 (twice 10 days )/ cadbios - (2 daily for 10 days) done. Now under homeopathy- Tub Bov- taken one dose only/Nihillinum 30 - once daily 3 gls/Nola Anti O - 15 drops daily at night. For last 7 days. But not stopping the issue in longer run.

Hi lybrate-user Yes the symptoms seem like IBS because some symptoms do not get diagnosed in the test which are termed as a general term IBS. Homeopathy works on symptoms not the disease. This is a chronic problem and will take some time to get it treated. I would suggest you to either show me at the clinic or take online consultation for this and it will definately cure this problem. For furthur queries message privately. Takecare.
