Please follow the below recommendation for your condition: diet, exercise, and behavioral modification should be included in all obesity management approaches for body mass index (bmi) of 25 kg/m 2 or higher. Other tools, such as pharmacotherapy for bmi of 27 kg/m 2 or higher with comorbidity or bmi over 30 kg/m2 and bariatric surgery for bmi of 35 kg/m2 with comorbidity or bmi over 40 kg/m 2, should be used as adjuncts to behavioral modification to reduce food intake and increase physical activity when this is possible. Do treadmill for at least 30-45 min daily. Many obese people are advised to follow a juice diet or the juice fast for a period of a week or so, so that they can shed the excess extra pounds faster. Health and nutrition experts advise people to consume fresh fruit or vegetable juice for obesity.

We’ve heard over and over again that weight loss is important in managing PCOS and that diet and exercise are more effective than medications in improving your PCOS symptoms 1. Eat organic food. Avoid junk. 2. Drink lots of water. 3. Exercise regularly. Brisk walking is a good idea to keep weight under control. 4. Visit nature places and spend time alone. 5. Take steps to calm your mind. Worrying about the problem can only make it worse – listen to music, read or spend time gardening. Butterfly Pose can be very helpful in PCOS. Don’t flap your legs too much; instead try holding the posture for long. 1. Even more helpful is SuptaBadhakonasana (Reclining Butterfly Pose), which works just like the Butterfly Pose,this time lying down. This is what makes it extremely relaxing. To enhance the experience, play some soft music and place cushions under your hip. For beginners, it is a good idea to use cushion support while doing this posture. 2. Bharadvajasana (Bharadvaja’s Twist) is a seated spinal twist that helps PCOS patients. 3. Chakki Chalanasana (moving the grinding wheel) is a very simple exercise with several benefits. It helps massage the liver, kidneys, pancreas, uterus and the reproductive organs. 4. Shavasana (Corpse Pose) is another useful posture to try. In PCOS, the more you relax, the better you feel and this posture will help you completely relax at the end of your yoga session. 5. Padma Sadhana practice is also considered very effective for PCOS patients. 6. Make sure you don’t hold the postures that put pressure on the abdomen (Bow Pose, Superman Pose, Cobra Pose and Boat Pose) for a long time. 7. A few rounds of Sun Salutation at a faster pace can be good for weight loss; however, it is a good idea to practice only a few slow rounds daily for more relaxation.

Polycystic ovarian syndrome can be completely cured with homoeopathic medicines. No side effects in homoeopathic medicines. We can prevent further recurrence. Avoid non veg and bakery items. Reduce intake of oily and fatty foods. Drink plenty of water. Daily walk about 45 mins. While taking homoeopathic medicines please avoid coffee and soft drinks for fast and better action of medicines. Nothing to worry. Homoeopathic medicines like apis, thuja, natrum mur, etc can cure pcos within 2 to 4 months if properly taken as per the instructions of a qualified homoeopath either directly.

Hi Doctor, I had taken an Ipill on 3rd May (14th day of my menstrual cycle). I didn't have any bleeding till 17th May. My period was due on 19th May. I always had regular 28 days cycle. On 17th May, I started having brown scanty flow. On the same day, doctor had done advanced UPT at the hospital which was negative Then, for next 2 days I had red period like flow which was heavy. My usual periods lasts for 5 days. So, do I still need to take UPT? Or, I am not at risk now?

2 Major Causes That Deprive You of Sexual Pleasure!

2 Major Causes That Deprive You of Sexual Pleasure!

2 Major causes of premature ejaculation and how to manage it

One of the most common sexual dysfunctions in men, Premature Ejaculation (PE) stands for the uncontrollable discharge of semen either prior to or immediately after sexual penetration. Usually ejaculation that occurs within 30 seconds to 2 minutes is considered premature.

Causes of Premature Ejaculation

PE can occur due to several reasons. As you age, you learn to control your orgasm. But there are times when you may experience uncontrolled ejaculation of semen. This usually occurs with a new sexual partner or if you’ve had your last ejaculation a long time ago. Nonetheless, the causes of this sexual problem can be the following:

A. Psychological Causes

The factors that contribute to this problem include:

1. Your previous history of sexual intercourse can cause you to develop a pattern, which may prove to be difficult to change as you move on with your life. For example, situations where you’ve hastened the climax with your partner so as to hide the problem; or feelings of guilt that cause you to rush through your sexual intercourses can go on to give rise to PE.

2. Similarly, anxiety about your sexual performance or issues related to your sexual experience can also play a role in bringing about uncontrolled discharge of semen.

3. Interpersonal problems between you and your partner can be a psychological trigger behind the problem as well.

4. Last but not the least, the fear of the failure to maintain an erection, more specifically the fear of erectile dysfunction can cause you to hasten the climax with your partner, leading to PE.

B. Biological causes

A number of biological factors can cause the problem of premature ejaculation, ranging from abnormal hormone and brain chemicals’ levels, thyroid and prostate or urethra inflammation, to hereditary and abnormal reflex functions of the body’s ejaculatory system.


How to Manage PE

Apart from drug therapy, there are several ways through which you can effectively control your ejaculation and these are:

- Using condoms to reduce the sensitivity of your penis

- Having sexual intercourse with your partner on top can reduce your chances of experiencing premature ejaculation

- Indulging in longer foreplays can help delay your ejaculation

- Take deep breaths to delay stimulation and ejaculation

- Practice start-stop and squeeze techniques, which help in arousing your penis to the point of ejaculation but stopping before it occurs to delay semen discharge.

Hello may I know what are the reasons for mensturation stop (excluding pregnancy).

M.B.S.(HOMEO), MD - Homeopathy
Homeopath, Visakhapatnam
There are three main causes of primary amenorrhea: chromosomal or genetic abnormalities can cause the ovaries to stop functioning normally. Turner syndrome, a condition caused by a partially or completely missing x chromosome, and androgen insensitivity syndrome, often characterized by high levels of testosterone, are two examples of genetic abnormalities that can delay or disrupt menstruation. 1 hypothalamic or pituitary problems in the brain and physical problems such as problems with reproductive organs can prevent periods from starting. Excessive exercise, eating disorders, extreme physical or psychological stress, or a combination of these factors can delay the onset of menstruation. Secondary amenorrhea can result from various causes, such as: natural causes. Pregnancy is the most common cause. Other natural causes include breastfeeding and menopause. Medications and therapies. Certain birth control pills, injectable contraceptives, and intrauterine devices (iuds) can cause amenorrhea. It can take a few months after stopping birth control for the menstrual cycle to restart and become regular. Some medications, including certain antidepressants and blood pressure medications, can increase the levels of a hormone that prevents ovulation and the menstrual cycle. Chemotherapy and radiation treatments for hematologic cancer (including blood, bone marrow, and lymph nodes) and breast or gynecologic cancer can destroy estrogen-producing cells and eggs in the ovaries, leading to amenorrhea. The resulting amenorrhea may be short-term, especially in younger women. Sometimes scar tissue can build up in the lining of the uterus, preventing the normal shedding of the uterine lining in the menstrual cycle. This scarring sometimes occurs after a dilation and curettage (d&c), a procedure in which tissue is removed from the uterus to diagnose or treat heavy bleeding or to clear the uterine lining after a miscarriage, 4 a cesarean section, or treatment for uterine fibroids. Gynecological conditions. Unbalanced hormone levels are common features of certain conditions that have secondary amenorrhea as a main symptom. These can include: polycystic ovary syndrome (pcos). Pcos occurs when a woman's body produces more androgens (a type of hormone) than normal. High levels of androgens can cause fluid-filled sacs or cysts to grow in the ovaries, interfering with the release of eggs (ovulation). Most women with pcos either have amenorrhea or experience irregular periods, called oligomenorrhea (pronounced ol-i-goh-men-uh-ree-uh). Fragile x-associated primary ovarian insufficiency (fxpoi). The term fxpoi describes a condition in which a woman's ovaries stop functioning before normal menopause, sometimes around age 40. Fxpoi results from certain changes to a gene on the x chromosome. As many as 10% of women who thyroid problems. The thyroid is a small butterfly-shaped gland at the base of the neck, just below the adam's apple. The thyroid produces hormones that control metabolism and play a role in puberty and menstruation. A thyroid gland that is overactive (called hyperthyroidism) or underactive (hypothyroidism) can cause menstrual irregularities, including pituitary tumor. Noncancerous tumors in the pituitary gland in the brain, which regulates the production of hormones that affect many body functions, including metabolism and the reproductive cycle, can interfere with the body's hormonal regulation of menstruation.

Lower back pain during early pregnancy, which was not there needs further evaluation asap. Feeling tight and does not like to eat are the symptoms are very common in pregnancy and usually suggests good pregnancy. This occurs because of hormone secreted by pregnancy and will disappear in a month time. As of now she needs ultrasound to find out any possible cause of backache, if the same backache was not there before pregnancy.
