Change your posture and keep your self warm. Take absolutely bland diet because one of the reasons can be acidity also but still it is advisable that you consult a gynaecologist immediately.

Which oil should I consume?

Which oil should I consume?
Oil and ghee (Butter oil) have been the soul of Indian cooking for generations. But doctors are advising usage of the same with caution. In fact some nutritionists are insisting for use of olive oil. What is the reality?

Peanut oil, mustard oil, sunflower oil, Safflower oil, soya oil are popular oils used all over India. And Vanaspati Ghee and Desi Ghee are popular choices amongst ghee. Usage of Poly-unsaturated fatty acids used to be deciding factor to choose oil type.

But now it is acknowledged wide over that Saturated Fatty acids are equally important and they increase the good cholesterol level. That means eat any type of oil or ghee. It is good for health. Palm oil or desi ghee was considered bad. But now it is recommended.

Only there is upper limit to quantity. For a 2000 calorie diet, oil/ghee consumption should not be more than 600 calorie.

Then what is bad? It’s trans fat. When oil is reheated again and again, trans fats are formed which are bad for heart.

I short, consume any oil or ghee it is good for health if eaten moderately.

Is pcos problem arise from childhood days or after puberty. If my baby girl has this problem, then I have to give her low gi foods.

Pcos mostly starts around puberty but inculcating healthy lifestyle in your girl starts early in childhood. Since this itself can lead to obesity and pcos later in adulthood.

Pregnancy Symptoms In Hindi Before Missed Period - मिस्ड पीरियड से पहले गर्भावस्था के लक्षण

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Lakhimpur Kheri
Pregnancy Symptoms In Hindi Before Missed Period - मिस्ड पीरियड से पहले गर्भावस्था के लक्षण

पीरियड्स का एक निश्चित चक्र होता है जिसके आधार पर महिलाओं के शरीर कई चीजों का पता लगाया जाता है. जैसे कि पीरियड्स का रुक जाना गर्भ धारण करने का प्रारंभिक संकेत माना जाता है. लेकिन जाहिर है कि गर्भधारण करने के बाद महिलाओं के शरीर में और भी कई तरह के बदलाव देखे जाते हैं. मतलब यदि आपका पीरियड मिस हो गया है तो आप कैसे निश्चित करेंगी कि ये गर्भ धारण करने का संकेत है या फिर कुछ और कारण है. इसे समझने के लिए आप गर्भावस्था के इन शुरुवाती लक्षणों को समझें-

1. थकान महसूस होना
जब गर्भ धारण हो जाता है तो शरीर में प्रेजेस्टेरॉन का स्तर बढ़ जाता है. इसकी वजह से आपको अक्सर थकान महसूस हो सकता है. हलांकि इस दौरान कम रक्तचाप और रक्त शर्करा का स्तर भी थकान का कारण बन सकता है.
2. मतली या उल्टी होना
फिल्मों में तो प्रेगनेंसी का ये संकेत भरपूर इस्तेमाल किया जाता है. बिना किसी ख़ास कारण के उल्टी हो तो ये भी प्रेग्नेंट होने का संकेत होता है. ऐसा इसलिए होता है क्योंकि इस दौरान हार्मोन के साथ-साथ फोलिक एसिड की भी कमी हो जाती है. गर्भावस्था के पहले या दुसरे महीने से इसकी शुरुवात हो जाती है.
3. भारी और संवेदनशील स्तन
जाहिर है प्रेग्नेंट होने का मतलब है कि आप माँ बनेंगी और माँ का मातृत्व स्तन से ही है. इसलिए यदि आप गर्भ से होंगी तो आपके स्तन भारी, सूजे हुए और संवेदनशील हो जाएंगे. इसका कारण है कि इस दौरान एस्ट्रोजेन और प्रेजेस्टेरॉन नामक हार्मोन्स के स्तन में परिवर्तन हो जाता है. इस अनुभव को आप माहावारी शुरू होने के अनुभव जैसा ही महसूस करेंगी.
4. सुगंध के प्रति आकर्षण
जाहिर है माँ बनना एक बेहद संवेदनशील काम है. इसलिए इस जिम्मेदारी के आने से पहले आपके शरीर में संवेदनशीलता का स्तर बढ़ जता है. और आप खुशबू या सुगंध के प्रति आकर्षित होने लगती हैं. गंध सम्बन्धी प्रणाली में होने वाला ये परिवर्तन एस्ट्रोजेन हार्मोन के स्तर में होने वाले बदलाव के कारण होता है.इस दौरान कुछ महिलाओं को मुंह में धातु जैसे स्वाद का अनुभव होता है तो वहीँ कुछ को भोजन का स्वाद भी अच्छा नहीं लगता है.

5. चक्कर आना
गर्भ धारण करने के दौरान प्रेजेस्टेरॉन हार्मोन के स्तर में वृद्धि हो जाती है. इस वजह से रक्त वाहिकाएं विस्तृत होकर आपके रक्तचाप को कम करती हैं. इसके परिणामस्वरुप आपके मस्तिष्क में अस्थाई रूप से रक्त का प्रवाह कम हो जाता है और आपको चक्कर आने लगता है. हलांकि कुछ विशेषज्ञों का ये भी कहना है कि इस दौरान हार्मोनल डिसफंक्शन के कारण वस्टीबुलर या कॉक्लेयर विकार की वजह से भी चक्कर आ सकता है.
6. मनोदशा में बदलाव
जाहिर है गर्भ के दौरान संवेदनशीलता में वृद्धि हो जाती है. इस वजह से आप खुद को भावुक महसूस करेंगी. आपको अपनी मनोदशा में भी बदलाव महसूस होगा. इसका कारण है कि इस दौरान होने वाले हार्मोनल परिवर्तन मस्तिष्क के रासायनिक दूत जिसे न्यूरोट्रांसमीटर कहते हैं उसे प्रभावित करते हैं. इस दौरान आपको उदासी या चिंता भी हो सकती है.
7. बार-बार पेशाब जाना
प्रेग्नेंट हो जाने के बाद आपका मूत्राशय शरीर में होने वाले अप्रत्याशित बदलावों से प्रतिक्रिया करने के परिणामस्वरूप आपको बिना किसी द्रव के सेवन के भी बाथरूम जाने की तलब लग सकती है. दरअसल इस दौरान किडनी दुगना काम करती है इसलिए रक्त की बढ़ती हुई मात्रा यहीं छन जाती है. और कोरियोनिक गोनाडोट्रोपिन नामक हार्मोन पेल्विक हिस्से में रक्त प्रवाह को बढ़ाता है. इसलिए आपके पेशाब करने की आवृत्ति बढ़ जाती है.
8. ऐंठन महसूस होना
इस दौरान कई महिलाओं को पीरियड के डेट से कुछ दिन पहले ऐंठन जैसा महसूस होता है. ऐसा तब होता है जब फ़र्टिलाइज्ड अंडे गर्भाशय की परत को जोड़ते हैं. इसकी वजह से गर्भाशय में संकुचन होता है और इससे ही ऐंठन जैसा लगता है.
9. पेट फूलना
गर्भ के दौरान पेट का फुलना आम बात है. यह एक ऐसा लक्षण है जो स्पष्ट दीखता है. ये भी शरीर में हुए अचानक हार्मोनल परिवर्तनों का ही परिणाम है. हार्मोनल परिवर्तन से जठर तंत्र के साथ ही परे शरीर के मसल्स के उतकों को शिथिल कर देता है. इसके अलावा पाचन तन्त्र धीमा हो जाने की वजह से भी पेट में फुलाव या ब्लोटिंग होता है.
10. मासिक चक्र का रुकना
जब आप गर्भ से होती हैं तो इस दौरान फ़र्टिलाइज्ड अंडे आपके गर्भाशय की दीवार में स्वयं को स्थापित कर लेते हैं. इसलिए पीरियड के समय ब्लीडिंग रुक जाती है. या होती भी है तो बहुत कम.

Hello, you need to spend more time on foreplay and clitoral stimulation before getting her excited. aLSO STRESS is a major hindrance to sex, so try distressing activities before resorting to intercoruse.

Cardiovascular Health - Easy Ways To Help You Maintain It!

Cardiovascular Health - Easy Ways To Help You Maintain It!

Following a healthy lifestyle that is armed with a well-regulated diet is the most important aspect of combating your cardio-vascular disease. If you think that it is going to be very difficult to achieve, then you will be happy to know that the reality is quite the opposite. You can achieve your goals by following short and simple steps that would help you to reap long-term benefits for protecting your cardio-vascular health.

  1. Try to use the calories consumed: It is very important to know how many calories you are consuming in a span of 24 hours. The calorie and nutritional information given on the food levels are normally based on the 2000 calorie diet. But it is crucial to know that your individual calorie requirement is dependent on numerous factors, including your age, gender as well as level of physical activities. When you are aiming to restrict your weight gain, it is recommended not to eat more than you can use up in a day along with increasing the intensity and amount of physical activity so that it matches the amount of physical activity. You must try to incorporate either 75 minutes of hard training or 150 minutes of moderate exercise in a span of seven days in order to boost healthy weight loss.
  2. Consume a wide array of nutritious items from all food groups: Though you may believe that you are eating a sufficient amount of foods, your body may not be receiving an optimum amount of nutrients it needs for proper functioning. Foods that are considered rich in nutrients must contain sufficient amounts of protein, minerals, whole grains and other variants of nutrients with low calorie content. These foods not only aid in reduction of weight but also trigger lowering of blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
  3. Eat right: You must aim to incorporate fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet besides whole grains, dairy products with low fat contents, legumes and nuts. It is important to stay away from red meat, trans fat, artificially sweetened beverages and sodium. Experts also suggest consuming less of food that has poor nutrient content in order to protect your heart.
  4. Avoid smoking and alcohol: Simply exercising and eating a healthy diet is important, but you should not eliminate the adverse effects of smoking and alcohol consumption, which not only cast an impact on the health of your heart but also cause a variety of cardiovascular and pulmonary diseases. The medications and remedial measures vary greatly among individuals and thus, it is crucial to speak with a doctor for receiving personalized treatments.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

How ICSI Can Help You Get Pregnant?

MBBS, MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology

How ICSI Can Help You Get Pregnant?

There are many reasons leading to infertility, but one of the main causes is the inability of the sperm to travel all the way up to the uterus to fertilize an egg. This is caused by defective sperms and could be due to poor sperm quality, poor motility, etc. There are multiple reasons for this, and even smoking, obesity,diabetes, hypertension, etc. could be reasons.

Many technical advancements in fertility treatments are being done, and they try to keep the natural process of fertilization intact, at the same time improving the chances of success. Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI, often used as a standalone term iksee) improves the rate of fertilization in that the sperm is directly injected into the egg. The environment of this artificial fertilization is completely controlled, and the fertilized egg is then placed into the womb for further growth. It is one of the recent methods of improving fertility, a part of ART (assisted reproductive technology).

Indications:

  1. Poor sperm perms motility

  2. Semen where sperm concentration is low

  3. Male infertility with unidentifiable cause

  4. Poor sperm quality, with sluggish sperms

  5. Ejaculation issues, such as retrograde ejaculation (semen is ejected into the bladder)

  6. Useful in couples who have failed IVF.

What to expect? 

The following outlines some of the steps for both male and female before and during the procedure.

Before the procedure - males:

  1. First step is the sperm collection; a screening is first done

  2. Sperms collection happens through either masturbation or directly from the testicles via a small incision

  3. Sperms could be collected fresh or collected and frozen for later use

Before the procedure – women:

  1. In the normal menstrual cycle, only a single egg is released. However, prior to ICSI, the woman is given ovulation drugs, which are high-dose hormone injections prior to ovulation. This ensures multiple eggs are released, which are then retrieved for fertilization in the external environment.

  2. Blood and urine are monitored regularly to identify the ovulation time, and eggs are collected within 24 to 36 hours of release

During the procedure - How ICSI happens:

  1. A healthy egg is chosen and placed in a glass tube, and a sperm is introduced to ensure fertilization

  2. This could be repeated in multiple tubes, and the most healthy one could be chosen to be implanted into the uterus

  3. Some of the fertilized ones could be frozen for later use, in case the implanted embryo fails to grow as expected

  4. The success rate for this procedure is quite high as the fertilization rate is almost 80 - 85 %. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an IVF specialist.

Chlamydia - Things You Must Know About It!

Chlamydia - Things You Must Know About It!

Chlamydia is a Sexually Transmitted Disease. It is generally found in men and women under the age of 25. Researchers have found that in the United States about 2.9 million individuals develop this disease every year.

Here are things that you must know about the disease:

What is it all about?
It is caused due to bacterial infection and is transferred sexually. You can be infected with disease by having vaginal, oral or anal sex with the patient. You must be aware of the fact that you can develop chlamydia even if your partner doesn’t ejaculate inside your vaginal tract. If you had suffered from this disease in the past, you can still get it again by having unprotected sex with an infected person.

What are the symptoms of this disease?
There aren’t any obvious symptoms for this disease. Most of the patients show no sign of developing this disease. Thus, you never get to know when you were infected actually. However, some patients do reflect some symptoms after 4 to 5 days of infection. These symptoms include abnormal penis or vaginal discharge and painful, burning urination. Men can also develop a bleeding rectum.

How do you know for sure that you are infected?
Well, you can get yourself tested to confirm about the infection.

What happens if you don’t get treated?
If the patient doesn’t seek medical help, he or she is posing threat to his or her health. Women may develop pelvic inflammatory diseases, infertility or ectopic pregnancy. In men, it can cause pain and fever as the infection spreads along the tube carrying sperm.

Is there any treatment?
This disease is curable. But it is important to avoid sexual contact with anyone during the period of treatment or medication. First, you need to undertake the test to confirm the infection. You shouldn’t have sex for seven days after the treatment is over. It is advisable to get yourself tested thrice in a year. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a sexologist.

Dear Lybrate user, Usually, it is not a good sign if bleeding occurs during pregnancy. However, it is not always so. One should get ultrasound of baby done. Further management will depend on clinical picture and ultrasound findings.

The best method to find out the day of ovulation is temperature method. In this technique, womens body temperature is recorded every morning. When these temperatures are plotted on a graph we get a curve. The temperature is low during actual bleeding. Subsequently it rises. At about the middle of cycle there is a sudden fall in temperature followed by a rise. This rise in temperature indicates that ovulation has occurred. You can msg me to discuss in detail to know the exact day of your ovulation. I will help you.
