There is no fixed number of times to have sex to have a baby. Its about the timing of sex that is important. And its not harmful to feed breasts milk.

I am 30 years women, and 4 years of married life. In the month of march, 2017 I got 2 periods on 16th and 26th mar. I consult gynaecologist for the same, she suggested me to go for pregnancy test,(result: Negative) so then she suggested me to gofor scan. In that they found i'm having stones in my kidney. 16 mm in my right and 8 mm in my left amd 2 stones of 5&6 mm in both the kidneys. She referred me to urology doctor for further case. I went and took exray and urologist suggested me to do surgery. This process took me mid of april as I consulted 2-3 doctors for reference. We already pre planned to go to out of country for a week in the end of april. So we decided to postpone my surgery for may 2nd week. After we came back to india, we came to know that i'm pregnant. Now exactly 2 months on 19th may 2017. Rushed to gynaecologist again, she suggested me not to worry becoz as I do not have kidney pain. As its your first pregnancy, she told me to be happy. But urologist is saying better to go for surgery may be in the process you will mis carriage your pregnancy. I do not want to happen like that. Not having proper sleep becoz of this problem. Please suggest me with a good solution that I shouldn't loose my pregnancy please.

General Physician,
As your baby is the first one you do not go for abortion and you can try non surgical methods for kidney pain if you have . and drink lot of water

Swimming - Why You Must Hit The Pool?

Swimming - Why You Must Hit The Pool?

According to many fitness experts, swimming can be an effective and rigorous fitness workout for people of all age, and everyone should try to hit the pool every day. While this is a regular regime for some, many are into a misconception that swimming is like child’s play. There are also those who think that swimming is not an effective form of weight loss. But the reality is that swimming is one of the best cardio exercises, and you must include it in your regular fitness regime.

And, in case you are running out of reasons to indulge in swimming, here are a few important points to convince you.

  1. Swimming is good for heart health: Swimming is known to provide an unparalleled conditioning of cardiovascular health if you can practice it with an untainted consistency. Even though other kinds of exercise such as running or cycling can be more effective to boost the levels of metabolism, you should include swimming in cross-training routine. Pushing yourself to swim regularly will improve the overall fitness.
  2. Helps in balancing the structure of muscles: Swimming aids in building longer and leaner muscles which complement the denser muscles produced from weight training. These newly formed muscles also aid in speeding up the metabolism process for keeping the calorie for burning longer.
  3. Swimming is an excellent form of cross-training: Swimming helps in improving the cardiovascular capacity and increase muscle strength. But the reason why swimming is famous among fitness enthusiasts is that swimming offers the much-needed break from the high impact workouts such as weight-lifting, running and basketball. It allows athletes a respite from the regular intensive routine and helps the body to heal properly without compromising the daily fitness sessions.
  4. Swimming helps in improving the overall flexibility of the muscles: Hitting the pool gradually relaxes the major muscle groups in the body and increase flexibility along with stretching it. If you indulge in lactic acid building workouts such as weight-lifting, cycling and running, swimming for half an hour assists in flushing out the toxins and spare the muscles from becoming tight and sore the following day.
  5. Assists in strengthening the core: One of the most prominent reasons why you should hit the pool regularly is that it helps in improving the core body strength. This is due to utilisation of the major muscle groups at the same time. Even though about 70 percent of the body’s effort rises from the upper portion, moves such as fin and kickboard can offer an excellent lower body workout.

To sum up, these benefits are definite to compel anyone to consider swimming on a regular basis and improve the quality of life without hurting the muscles. And in no time, you would start enjoying it too!" If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a physiotherapist.

I am having hypo thyroid. TSH-9.85.I am taking thyroxine 50 mg tablets. Can I plan for a child in thyroid.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, DGO

Hello, Since you have already started tablet Thyronorm, please check your TSH levels once again after completing 6-8 weeks of tablets. If your TSH level is between 2-3 you can start planning pregnancy. However please make a note you need to keep checking your thyroid levels repeatedly even if you conceive to avoid miscarriage.

Menstrual Cramps Or Pain And Its Cure With Homoeopathy

Menstrual Cramps Or Pain And Its Cure With Homoeopathy

Homeopathy for Women

Painful menstrual periods (dysmenorrhea)

Painful menstruation (dysmenorrhea) is one of the most common gynecological disorders. Many women experience sharp, dull, throbbing or cramping pains in the lower abdomen just before or during their periods. There may be also symptoms of nausea, vomiting, sweating and dizziness.

Primary and secondary dysmenorrhea:

Dysmenorrhea can be classified as either primary or secondary based on the absence or presence of an underlying cause.

Primary dysmenorrhea is common menstrual cramps.

Secondary dysmenorrhea is caused by a disorder in the woman`s genital organs.

Common causes of secondary dysmenorrhea include:

Endometriosispelvic inflammatory diseaseuterine fibroidsovarian cystscervical stenosis

Homeopathic treatment for painful periods:

A number of homeopathic medicines can help control the pain as well as actually prevent the menstrual cramps.

Homeopathy is an effective natural treatment with no side effects.

Some homeopathic medicines have a local action (they alleviate the cramps only) and provide fast pain relief.

They are used during painful periods only. Others are called constitutional (chronic) medicines and target the root cause of dysmenorrhea. Constitutional medicines are a deep acting treatment that eliminates not only the menstrual cramps but also brings whole body balance.

The most common homeopathic medicines for fast pain relief include:

Belladonna - Intense throbbing pain with sudden onset, cramps get worse from touch or jolts.
Chamomilla - The woman can`t stand any pain and gets irritable and angry when in pain; passive movement, such as riding in a car or rocking her body alleviate pain.
Cimicifuga - Pain is proportional to the flow - the more they bleed, the stronger the pain; stiffness of neck and shoulders.
Colocynthis - Intolerable cramps; the woman is restless and bent over. Applying pressure on the abdomen or heat relieve the pain. Painful periods are often triggered by anger or suppressed indignation.
Magnesia phosphorica - Cramps relieved by pressure or warmth; right side abdominal pain is more common.
Veratrum album - Severe menstrual cramps accompanied by nausea, vomiting and sweating; heavy flow; tired and chilly woman.

Take them regularly throughout the day, not just when pain becomes difficult to cope with. In severe dysmenorrhea, for best results start taking them a day or two before the onset of your menstrual flow.

For well selection of the medicine consult a doctor. Avoid self medication.

Dear user. Semen is only one percent sperm; the rest is composed of over 200 separate proteins, as well as vitamins and minerals including vitamin C, calcium, chlorine, citric acid, fructose, lactic acid, magnesium, nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, vitamin B12, and zinc . Swallowing semen will never cause pregnancy. Take care.

Homeopath, Lucknow
Some women experience leaking from their breasts during the first three to four weeks of pregnancy, However, this is not that common. It is, however, more common for some women to show leaking breasts between the 12th to 14th weeks or by the end of this trimester. So don't worry about it.

Diploma in Child Health (DCH), MBBS
Pediatrician, Delhi
Hi lybrate-user since you are breastfeeding you must take 25 percent extra food than your pre pregnant food. As such no supplementation is required unless untill you are suffering from some deficiancy. You must take a balanced diet which include roti / rice, green vegetable, dal, salad, fruits, milk, egg etc. Avoid junk food.

My partner have a doubt that she is pregnant. She is waiting for her periods. If by chance she gets pregnant. How can we prevent it?

First of all do a urine pregnancy test to confirm the pregnancy, if it turns out to be positive then go for an abortion by pills under the supervision of a registered gynaecologist as there can be complication which only a doctor can handle. So do not try to do anything on your own.

A Wise Decision:  Seeking Professional Help, Before It Is Late

Seeking Professional Help, Before It Is Late

Depression and anxiety are affecting millions, all over the world and the phrase ‘pull yourself together” is still at play in INDIA. There is a huge social stigma, and a sense of shame about what others in the community might think about visiting a professional, which now needs to be corrected.
Research shows that Psychotherapy and counselling sessions are the most effective treatments to cure all psychological problems. These sessions not only help individuals to cope with daily problems, but also teaches them the skills and strategies to deal with them more effectively and make oneself emotionally and mentally empowered.

With Psychotherapy and counseling, you’ll learn more effective ways to deal with problems. gradually, you would develop certain problem-solving skills, coping mechanisms and better perception for overall growth.

A lot of people do not seek help and suffer internally because visiting psychologist/ psychiatrist is considered taboo in Indian society, leading to increased mental health problems. Most of the people avoid sharing personal problems and issues, as that might expose them as being weak.

The ideal solution for someone who is depressed, anxious and facing problems at work or in personal life, is seeking a professional help of psychologist/ psychiatrist. However, most people are not aware of the difference between a psychologist and a psychiatrist and hence are not sure whom to refer.

Let’s find out the difference between the both:

While psychologists and psychiatrists both conduct psychotherapy and research, there are many significant differences between the two professions,which we will list in our separate blog but, one very important distinction between the two is , that psychiatrists can prescribe medications, while psychologists cannot. However, there has been a recent push to grant prescribing powers to psychologist. psychologist deal with therapies, counseling, and building healthy perception towards life. even in cases where medication is required, psychiatrist may refer the client to psychologist further, for complementing the treatment with medicines.

The next time you feel depressed, anxious or need help dealing with overwhelming social situations or difficult times, make a smart choice, consider professional help and feel safe visiting a psychologist/ psychiatrist. In INDIA, with increase awareness and education, people are outgrowing
this stigma and consider it a wise step to go ahead and take initiative toward better life.

Psychological counseling is a tool that creates success, it’s something everybody would need in their life. At each developmental stage, a person needs guidance and awareness as how to adjust with new roles and be successful. Hence, considering counselling and psychotherapy to deal with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, is a wise move.
Take that one courageous step towards life.

We took an apppointment with Endocrinologist today evening. Will there be any complications with baby's physical or mental growth. Can thyroid values be sustained to normal by regular medication and can we expect a healthy baby? Please guide us. Regards.

Nuclear Medicine Physician, Mumbai
For first 13 weeks of pregnancy fetus's thyroid is dependent on mother's thyroid function. It is good that you have started medication today and have also taken Endocrinologist's appointment. TSH will have to be monitored at short intervals to ensure that it is below 2.5 micro IU/ml. Continue the medication and follow Endocrinologist's instructions.
