Every month I face late periods at least by a week? What would be the reason I am getting so late.
Cycles can normally vary between 28-35 days. So this might be normal for you. However if it becomes more delayed please do tests to rule out polycystic ovarian disease.

I am 48 year May be going through menopausal phase. I am having pain in my right thigh and lower portion of leg, tightness in my breasts. Feeling very tired nowadays. Putting on weight. On the whole not feeling good. Kindly suggest.

Gynaecologist, Gurgaon
These are definitely early signs of premenopause, feeling pain in thighs and lower legs can happen due to harmonal changes happening at this stage, you have to understand that the natural oestrogen, starts declining at this time which leads to vasoconstriction which inturns attributes to tightness, numbness, cramps and sometimes hot flushes too, besides feeling of tightness in breasts. That's how the mood changes happens and not feel good factor. You have to either except this change in you positively or go for HRT. Harmonal replacement therapy. However for now start some calcium supplements, and Vit D3, and some uterine toners to help you through this phase.

Hi, Pregnancy cannot be ruled out in women with irregular menstrual cycles. Therefore it is better to check her urine for pregnancy or do an U/S scan of pelvis.

Hello, This may be stress induced this time. If pregnancy is ruled out then you may opt for a withdrawal bleed with progesterones.

Pregnancy can occur only one day of cycle that is ovulation day so unprotected sex around that day only important. As only one day in month two months means 2 trials only and nature should be given 12-24 trials before you need any active management by Gynecologist or infertility specialist.

Control thyroid first. Period lasting for 1-2 days is not a big deal if it occurs every month. Still you are not satisfied, consult your doctor.

Scientific Reason Why Stretching is Crucial Before/ After a Workout

MSc in Orhopedic Physiotherapy (UK), BPTh/BPT

Scientific Reason Why Stretching is Crucial Before/ After a Workout

Why is stretching so important before or after a workout?

Stretching often takes a backseat in most workout routines. This happens significantly more with men than woman, and can lead to a disaster in the gym. Stretching is just as important, both before and after your workout, as it helps in preventing injury. It might not be the most vigorous of exercises, but both static (stretching in one fixed position) and dynamic (stretching in variable positions) stretches are beneficial to your body, and will help in keeping it fighting fit till the next session. So what does stretching help with?

 

1. Flexibility

This is a no-brainer. Stretching helps in keeping the body flexible and nimble. It stretches out those muscle groups that aren’t used in most major workouts, and helps cut down on the nervous involvement of unwanted muscles during workouts. Post-workout stretching helps keep the tendons and muscles flexible for the next session, which would otherwise have tensed up and caused tears and sores. You also build up a greater degree of motion for all your joints, which aids in various ways during different exercises.

 

2. Pain And Improved Circulation

Your heart rate spikes during a workout, and beats at an abnormally elevated rate. Stretching helps ease it down to a normal level. Your muscles tighten during workout, which increases risks for injury. Stretching helps ease them back into a more relaxed state, further improving blood circulation and preventing cramps. Stretching also has the added benefit of eliminating lactic acid, which gets accumulated in your body during a workout.  It cools down your body gradually, decreasing strain on your heart.

So what sort of stretches should you be doing?

1. Static stretching

There are two basic types of stretching, dynamic and static. Static stretching is an exercise where you elongate a certain muscle or muscle group to a point where it is nearly uncomfortable and hold it for a period of time between 30 – 60 seconds. Static stretching is recommended for after workouts. It improves muscle interactions, maintains range of motion and keeps muscle tissues healthy.

2. Dynamic stretching

Dynamic stretching is more active, as you keep your body in motion while you stretch. The movements are tightly controlled and precise, and proper execution greatly adds to athletic performance. Dynamic stretches are great warm ups, and a gentle, easy way to get your heart rate up. It’s also a great full body exercise for people who cannot exercise much, and is a great way to engage all the muscle groups in your body.

Thus, static stretches are the perfect way to maintain the flexibility of your body. You should be making them a mandatory part of your post-workout regime as it provides the necessary care and maintenance to your muscles. It decreases muscle fatigue and prevents a lot of injuries. You could incorporate dynamic stretches into your warm up and mid-workout, when you can get your entire body ready for the workout and cut down on nervous involvement of unwanted muscle groups.

I am 18 years old and had sex first time in november 2014. I had regular periods after that. But this month I am not getting my period. Blood test (beta hcg) was 0.100 miu/ml. I am constantly worried about being pregnant. I know this is silly but please help me out. I am not bloated like other six month pregnant ladies but slightly fat. Please tell me am I pregnant? why am I not getting my period? how can I get it asap?

M.B.S.(HOMEO), MD - Homeopathy

An hcg level of less than 5miu/ml is considered negative for pregnancy, and anything above 25miu/ml is considered positive for pregnancy. So you need not worry about pregnancy, but you have to consult doctor and check your causes for late menses. Better you consult homeopathic doctor to solve your problem.

Metabolic Syndrome - 5 Ways You Can Prevent it

Metabolic Syndrome - 5 Ways You Can Prevent it

The word metabolism is the manner in which food is processed and used by the body. Metabolic syndrome is a group of conditions, which are caused due to altered metabolism. They increase the chance of developing chronic conditions like heart disease, stroke, diabetes and obesity in a person.

When a person has one of these, it puts them at a higher risk of developing metabolic syndrome. However, lifestyle changes can help the onset of metabolic syndrome and reduce the gravity of the situation.

Factors that put you at risk of contracting a metabolic syndrome

There are 5 major risk factors, which can indicate if a person would develop a metabolic syndrome.

  1. Increased blood sugar: If the fasting blood sugar is consistently high, it could be the early indication of diabetes.

  2. Increased blood pressure: When the heart constantly exerts pressure to pump blood through the arteries, it can be damaging in the long run.

  3. Excessive fat around the waistline: Fat around the belly (pear shaped body) is more harmful than fat around the hips. This abdominal obesity is an indicator of metabolic syndrome.

  4. Abnormal cholesterol level: There are good and bad cholesterols (HDL and LDL respectively). When the HDL level is low, the chances of the heart to build plaque are increased, which can lead to heart failure, stroke, etc.

  5. High level of triglyceride: Increased triglyceride levels also put one at a higher risk of developing metabolic syndrome.

Complications: Some of the complications of having a metabolic syndrome include hypertension, diabetes, stroke, heart failure and fatty liver. It is a complicated and vicious cycle where there is increased pressure on all the vital organs, but they are unable to perform to their optimal levels. There is a narrowing of the blood vessels due to the plaque accumulation, which slows blood flow to all organs leading to the sluggishness of the whole system.

Prevention

While the bad news is that metabolic syndrome is on the rise with changing lifestyles, the good news is that with some planning and effort, it can be prevented and severity reduced. It requires discipline, commitment, and dedication.

1. Diet: Eating healthy with more of whole grains, less of red meat, loads of fresh fruits and vegetables, omega-3 fatty acids, and a heart-healthy diet can go a long way in managing the metabolism.

2. Exercise: Regular moderate exercise can help avoid accumulation of fat and burn the extra calories consumed.

3. Smoking: One should quit smoking, as it can help in many ways and helps in managing the body’s metabolism is one of them.

4. Alcohol: Avoid consuming excessive alcohol as it helps in managing body’s metabolism.

5. Stress management: Finding good ways to manage stress (be it music, meditation, yoga, or exercise) can help control harmful ways of stress management like drinking alcohol and smoking. 

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Hi. Whenever I do sex with my partner, after his ejaculation in vagina the liquid comes out from it and it does not go inside. Any particular reason for this? Because we are trying to have a child but this issue is preventing to get pregnant.

Dear, this is normal. The sperms move up and the seminal fluid comes out. Every women face this issue. But as you are planning pregnancy it is best to consult a gynaec or infertility specialist if its has been more that a year of trying. If it is less than that just relax, most women would take upto 12 months to conceive if everything is fine. If you have regular periods have intercourse on alternate days from 10 th to 18 th day of cycle counting from 1st day of full flow.
