Hello Lybrate-user- PCOD is caused by improper food intake and improper routine specially done in the time of menses. Try this ayurvedic treatment- a) Tab Kuberaksha vati 1 tab twice daily. B) Tab Hyponid 1 tab thrice daily. C) Do Basti treatment by nearby ayurvedic doctor (it is a very effective treatment in ayurveda for pcod). D) Maintain proper eating routine, avoid fast foods and spicy diet.

Hello. I got my last period on Jan 24. Feb month I missed my periods. How long I have to wait to check pregnancy test.
& days after the missed period, urine pregnancy test should be done. You should do it now as if positive, early scan is very important. Early morning urine is not mandatory for testing and even if there is faint second line that means it is positive and it should be read within 5 minute of putting urine.

10 Tips To Lose Post-Pregnancy Weight

10 Tips To Lose Post-Pregnancy Weight

Post-pregnancy weight can be difficult to get rid of. It is a gradual process and often takes time. Experts are of the view that hormonal imbalance and a sudden increase in the diet are the major cause of the additional weight. This being said, shedding weight is possible if a consistent effort is made on a daily basis. Here is a list of hat tips to get you started:

  1. Walk every day: Walking 5 minutes a day does the world of good in the endeavor of shedding weight. Post the 6-week check-up after the arrival of the baby, the duration of walking can be increased. Brisk walking for half an hour can help the body to weight as much as 300 calories a day.
  2. Weight training- Weight training is one of the best forms of exercise to lose weight quickly. If hitting a gym is a problem, a personal trainer can be hired for working out. Certain exercises such as lifting small weights, doing lunges is a good way to start.
  3. Breastfeed: Breastfeeding for a time duration of 30-45 minutes (about3-4 times a day) helps to lose 600-800 calories per day. Some women even report of shedding all their extra weight just through breastfeeding. This is by far the easiest way of losing weight.
  4. Say no to calories- Calories, by all means, will have to be avoided. Certain fast food items such as soda, chocolate, and chips should not be consumed at all. Instead, meals rich in nutrient, fresh vegetable, fruits, whole grains etc. should be consumed on a daily basis.
  5. Frequent meals- 2 to 3 heavy meals a day are detrimental to a person trying to shed weight. Frequent meals, on the other hand, maintain a steady blood sugar level, reduce the tendency of over-eating and do not let fat store in the body.
  6. Frequent naps- Studies show that frequent naps can help a great deal of weight. It reduces the craving of eating food with high calorie. It also revitalizes the metabolism and refrains a person from long term self-deprivation. Naps will also help to gather enough energy to perform other physical activities.
  7. Healthy snacks- Home-made snacks containing whole wheat, low-fat milk and yogurt are good snack options for post pregnancy weight loss. These snacks block hormones that are responsible for storage of fat in the body.
  8. Yoga or meditation- Yoga has proved to be extremely effective for women trying to shed post-pregnancy weight. It especially helps in toning down the fat in the upper and lower abdomen which is extremely difficult to get rid of. Yoga also relaxes the mind and helps to focus more.
  9. Consumption of warm water- Drinking warm water after every meal serves two purposes.
    • It doesn’t let the fat store inside the body.
    • It helps in better digestion. It has to be ensured that the water is mildly warm and drinkable.
  10. Avoid stress- Nurturing a baby is exhausting enough. Stress on top of this can be disastrous. It leads to depression resulting into junk eating. It has to be ensured that stress is avoided by engaging in activities such as cooking, painting or listening to music. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dietitian-nutritionist.

Hello- Breast secretes milk in its normal physiology after birth so if your baby is not feeding breast milk than it is possible that breast clumps will be formed in alveolar tissue causing pain and redness. If baby is not willing to feed thn manually remove the milk by a suction cup and discard it in regular intervals. The formed milk clump will dissolve and your problem will be solved.

Dear user. Taking mirinda during your pregnancy is not harmful for you or baby just because mirinda is an aerated drink. If you have acidity related problem or problems related to digestion, then just avoid mirinda. You should avoid jumping totally when you have your child inside your womb. Take care.

Sleep on The Left Side is Good For Health

General Physician (AM)
Alternative Medicine Specialist, Chandigarh
Sleep on The Left Side is Good For Health
Your sleeping position has an important influence on your digestive tract. In the past, monks preferred to lie down after their meals for ten minutes to improve their digestion.

Moreover, both Ayurveda (the most ancient oriental medicine) and the Indian alternative medicine advice their followers to sleep on the left side. Wondering why?

The left side of the human body is considered to be the dominant lymphatic side. Most of your body’s lymph flows into the thoracic duct, which is located on the left side. In its way, the lymph carries proteins, glucose, other metabolites and waste material.

It is purified in the lymph nodes and later drained into the left part of the human heart

Hi.... Oophorinum or any homoeopathic medicines prescribed on just names of the disease rarely give permanent result... They are more of palliative. If you want permanent result then consult for detailed case taking and then if best matching homoeopathic medicine is prescribed... The results are very encouraging.

Causes of Soreness in Vulva and Abnormal Discharge in Adolescent Girls

MBBS, MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Noida
Causes of Soreness in Vulva and Abnormal Discharge in Adolescent Girls

Pruritus Vulvae is the most common cause of vulvar soreness and abnormal discharge in adolescent girls. The growing years are a transition phase where most body parts are undergoing changes to reach the adult stage. While some changes would be obvious externally, there are a lot of internal changes, which would not be very apparent. And for growing girls, especially the changes that they see in their private parts are worrisome, sometimes unpleasant and uncomfortable. About 50% of them would not even discuss these with someone to avoid embarrassment.

Some amount of vaginal discharge is normal and contains bacteria, which are essential for a normal genital health. It also provides lubrication and keeps the area clean. However, the amount, color, and type of discharge can vary and is a good indication of any underlying abnormal condition. Most genital tract issues manifest with a change in the vaginal discharge along with irritation or soreness.

In adolescent girls, the most common problem is pruritus vulvae, which is itching of the vulva region. It is a variant of contact dermatitis caused by irritation. In the growing years, the vulva is thin and delicate with a neutral pH. This makes it easily irritable, unlike in mature women, who also have the protection of pubic hair, thick skin, and labial fat pads. This irritation leads to the condition called pruritus vulvae.

Causes of soreness:
These are primarily non-infectious and infectious (genital).

Noninfectious causes:

  1. Poor hygiene leading to irritation, soreness and itching
  2. Contamination with urine or feces
  3. Mechanical irritation from itching, use of toilet paper, ill-fitting undergarments.
  4. Chemical irritation from soaps, detergents, shampoo, chlorinated water, etc.
  5. Foreign body such as toilet paper leading to vaginal discharge can cause vulval irritation
  6. Skin diseases like atopic dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, or psoriasis presents with vulvar symptoms too in the form of soreness and itching

Infectious causes:

  1. Sexually transmitted infections like trichomoniasis, gonorrhea and chlamydia.
  2. Viral infections like genital herpes and genital warts.
  3. Fungal infections such as Candida such as and tinea are rarely the cause of pruritus vulvae in prepubertal females.
  4. Worms like pinworms which move from the anus to the vagina, causing itching
  5. Bacteria like Shigella, Yersinia and E. coli can also lead to non-sexually transmitted infections and subsequent symptoms like soreness and discharge.

Prevention/Management:

  1. Awareness is the first step in prevention. The girl must be educated about the changes her body is going through and the reasons behind it.
  2. Hygiene habits, especially after urination or passing feces, should be enforced.
  3. Avoid undergarments that are tight fitting and can be irritating
  4. Avoid soaps/chemicals when cleaning the genital area
  5. Topical creams (emollients/hydrocortisone) are usually effective
  6. Infections would need a course of antibiotics

When the girl is complaining of soreness and itching, it is best to visit a doctor to get a thorough examination and manage accordingly.

Dear user. SEXUAL INTERCOURSE WITH PREGNANT WOMEN is not advisable during the first three months and the last three months of pregnancy. You can have sexual intercourse during the middle three months of pregnancy but only after permission from your gynecologist. Conception during pregnancy is not possible. Take care.

Hi lybrate-user. I understand your concern. It is a very common problem these days. One of the two partners due to stress, hormones or various factor lose interest in sex. These days however medication and procedures are available to enhance sexual experience and arousal for both men and women. You may show a sexual health expert for this. I'm sure that would really help you.

Hello- Its absolutely safe to perform oral sex under hygienic conditions. Here are some tips to get you going. -The worst thing you can do is take advice from porn. Not only are they doing it wrong, but they’re actually doing it wrong on purpose so the cameras can film the action. -Start slow. -Explore her whole pussy first. Warm her up. Kiss her thighs. -Show you’re excited about going down on her. - Lick the clitoris indirectly. -When you find a rhythm she likes, stick to it. Don’t switch speeds or strokes. -STOP in the middle of licking her. -Multitask. Feel her tits while you’re licking her. -After you’ve licked her for a while and gotten her wet… Finger her G-spot.

Hello, If her menses have been delayed inspite of protected sex, then ideally a urine pregnancy test should be done after 8 days post missed period to rule out pregnancy conclusively and then if the test is negative then she may wait for a total of 15 days post missed periods to allow return of menses.
