Better to get your polyps removed because anything inside the uterine cavity can hamper your results. Iui as it is has a minimal success rate so get optimum benefit u should go for polyp removal before iui.

Myths And Facts About Turmeric

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), MD - Ayurveda
Sexologist, Haldwani
Myths And Facts About Turmeric

Let's be clear about what turmeric can not do:

Turmeric usually does not cause significant side effects -- ( The truth is that some people can experience stomach upset, nausea, dizziness, or diarrhea)
You can use turmeric if you have gallbladder problems -- (The truth is that turmeric can make gallbladder problems worse)
Turmeric is not helpful for diabetes -- (The truth is that early research suggests that taking turmeric daily for 9 months can reduce the number of people with prediabetes who develop diabetes.)

Now that we have cleared up what Turmeric cannot do, let's talk about what it Can do for you.

Turmeric has been used for roughly 4000 years as a medicine for a wide variety of medical conditions. Turmeric was mainly for digestive issues, but can be used to treat everything from indigestion to cancer.

The main active ingredient in turmeric is curcumin, and according to UMMC, 'Curcumin is also a powerful antioxidant. Antioxidants scavenge molecules in the body known as free radicals, which damage cell membranes, tamper with DNA, and even cause cell death.

Antioxidants can fight free radicals and may reduce or even help prevent some of the damage they cause. In addition, curcumin lowers the levels of two enzymes in the body that cause inflammation. It also stops platelets from clumping together to form blood clots.'

Turmeric has been shown to treat:

Indigestion
Dyspepsia
Ulcerative Colitis
Stomach Ulcers
Osteoarthritis
Heart Disease
Cancer
Bacterial Infections
Viral Infections
Uveitis
The research that back up these claim is extensive to say the least. For instance, a publication from The International Journal of Biochemistry and Cell
'Although safe in most cases, ancient treatments are ignored because neither their active component nor their molecular targets are well defined. This is not the case, however, with curcumin, a yellow pigment substance and component of turmeric (Curcuma longa), which was identified more than a century ago. For centuries it has been known that turmeric exhibits anti-inflammatory activity, but extensive research performed within the past two decades has shown that the activity of turmeric is due to curcumin, a diferuloylmethane. This agent has been shown to regulate numerous transcription factors, cytokines, protein kinases, adhesion molecules, redox status and enzymes that have been linked to inflammation. The process of inflammation has been shown to play a major role in most chronic illnesses, including neurodegenerative, cardiovascular, pulmonary, metabolic, autoimmune and neoplastic diseases.'

The publications concludes:'The wisdom and scientific credentials of curcumin in the Ayurvedic and Chinese systems of medicine have been corroborated by numerous studies conducted over the past 30 years. These observations are also supported by epidemiological data suggesting lower incidence of chronic diseases in people from countries where curcumin is consumed. The various effects of curcumin have been widely studied in Western systems of medicine for decades, and has been found to possess antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities. Considering that inflammation plays a major role in most chronic illnesses, anti-inflammatory agents are needed for prevention purposes. Although several different steroids and NSAIDS (such as celecoxib, aspirin, ibuprofen, phenylbutazole, etc.) have been approved for treatment of inflammatory conditions, most of them have side effects, especially when consumed over long periods of time. Because curcumin inhibits multiple proinflammatory pathways and is affordable, this phytochemical should be further explored for prevention and treatment of various chronic diseases. Further clinical trials are needed to fully develop the potential of this 'age-old NSAID'.

Actually you r saying it otherwise. Due to persistent leucorrhoea you experience tiredness. This discharge can be due to pelvic inflammatory disease caused due to infection in cervix or uterus. There is a very good treatment for this in homoeopathy.

My wife is 24 year old. We got married 2 yrs ago. Some days ago an ovarian Cystic Lesion was found in my wife. But after medication and complication of her period, she had a test and found that No cyst is no more and test report is ok. Doctor prescribed me DRONIS-31 for 3 months. Is this medicine related with Cyst? What actually DRONIS-30 is for? Please answer.

Actually dronis 30 is meant for contraception (avoidance of pregnancy). But it is also prescribed in ovarian cysts and irregular menstruation. And yes, often some cysts appear and disappear, we don't give much importance to these cysts.

I have problem of white vaginal discharge.

CCST, Accredation in Colposcopy, MRCOG, MD, DGO
Gynaecologist,
Ensure you keep the area clean. Do not use soap or dettol locally. Drink 2.5 litres of water daily. Eat a well balanced diet. Avoid fried and junk foods. Use multivitamin supplements. You can use a local wash like intiwash and see if it helps. If nothing works you will need a course of antibiotics.

HAS GYMING BECOME SYNONYMOUS TO NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS?
Okay, you are now going to the gym. So, you stack up your kitchen with all the possible supplements that your friend or gym instructor or the expert on some teleshopping show have advised you.
But, where's the real food?" It's not that most people gyming are not eating home food but most are taking in lots of calories and nutrients in the form of energy bars, nutrient-enhanced drinks, and fortified packaged foods. Actually, "real" foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean meats—are better for you than fortified products.
That's because there's more to a chikki or a sweet potato than just a protein bar or carb drink. Within the body, vitamins, minerals, and other essential nutrients work together with literally thousands of other compounds, such as color components in fruits and vegetables, special starches and fibers in whole grains, and unique fats in seeds, nuts, and dairy. And it's the whole package that promotes good health and peak performance in the gym or any other sports. Of course, protein bars and shakes seem like a convenient way to take in all nutrients at one go without the hard work of preparing it. But getting these nutrients—and more—from real food is not difficult.
The need for supplementation should not surpass the intake of real foods. Remember, no supplement will work in isolation. For you to achieve the best from it also needs the best of a healthy diet.
Look for some easy ways in the part two of this topic, and your body will get everything it needs for better health and better performance in the sport you are into.

It does not give you any 100 protection during sexual intercourse while doing sex with condom, some times condoms leak, or burst or you are transmitted with std, so Dr. Was right.

Cunnilingus or oral sex is safe kind of sex as compared to vaginal or anal sex. Licking ass should be avoided as there are many germs which can infect her.

I am 6 weeks pregnant n today I had a pin drop of blood clots. Is everything alrite.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist,
I am 6 weeks pregnant n today I had a pin drop of blood clots. Is everything alrite.
Usually during pregnancy there is no bleeding from the vagina. Even if it is pin drop size, it could be a sign of an" abortion process" so get examined by a gynecologist and they might sugegst some test like sonography to check for any internal uterine bleeding, and baby's heart beats. If the reports show baby is fine, usually they will just give you some medicines and some injections to prevent the abortion process. All abortions can not be prevented. Abortions happen for many reasons, but the major reason is an abnormality of the baby which makes survival impossible. So even if baby is fine and you are on medications, the abortion process may at times be curbed, but sometimes, inspite of taking these medicines, abortion does happen!
