I had sex with my gf. Sex means just I had rubbed in her area directly after doing hand job. But from her part she did not release any? Is there any chance to get pregnancy. Her period date is 28/11 and we did this in 19/11.

Hello lybrate-user, any kind of physical sexual contact of private parts can lead to a pregnancy as because sometimes the secretions from the male organ before the ejaculate may also contain sperms.

Dear lybrate-user! It is nice to know you are concerned about your good health. Daily one hour of brisk exercise (jogging or running), avoiding weight gain, and a healthy diet is good enough to prevent diabetes. A good target is as long as you keep fitting in your college jeans. U will never develop diabetes.

My wife has just now found out she is pregnant. She has been drinking on-and-off the past month (4 times in the last month). Could this affect the baby? Please advise.

No it can not affect the baby unless she continue taking alcohol. Only if woman drinks more than 90 ml alcohol per day then only it has minute risk of baby developing fetal alcohol syndrome. Alcohol during pregnancy is usually to be avoided as after getting drunk she is at risk of getting herslf injured and her baby also.

Causes and Symptoms of Metabolic Bone Disease

Fellowship, DNB, D.Ortho, MBBS
Orthopedist
Ask Free Question
Metabolic bone disease is a term used for various conditions of the bones that can be caused by a number of different disorders. Most of these disorders are developed due to nutritional deficiencies, defects in the bone metabolism procedure or due to hereditary defects in the skeletal structure. Conditions that fall under the category are osteoporosis, osteomalacia, rickets, paget's disease, parathyroid conditions, chemotherapy induced bone loss and menopause induced bone loss.

Causes of metabolic bone diseases
1. Imbalance in the level of calcium: too much calcium or too little calcium can cause bone diseases. While the overabundance of calcium (hypercalcemia) in the body will lead to calculi formation, which can be harmful for the body, the lack of calcium (hypocalcemia) causes weakness, bone pain and restricted growth.
2. Deficiency of phosphorus: low phosphorus in blood (hypophosphatemia) leads to softening of the bone tissue and bone loss. Osteomalacia is commonly caused by phosphorus deficiencies.
3. Deficiency of vitamin d: vitamin d is essential for the body to absorb calcium. Cells called osteoblasts need vitamin d in order to absorb calcium and secrete the bone tissue proteins. A deficiency of vitamin d can lead to a number of metabolic bone diseases like rickets and osteoporosis.
4. Over or under secretion of the parathyroid hormone: the parathyroid hormone (pth) stimulates the secretion of an enzyme, which converts the inactive circulatory form of vitamin d into its active usable form. The hormone can also increase the circulation of free or ionized calcium (ca2+), which is not attached to proteins. Both underproduction and overproduction of the hormone causes skeletal problems.
Symptoms of metabolic bone diseases

The symptoms of most of the metabolic bone diseases are similar, such as
1. A dull, throbbing pain in the bones is the most common symptom. The pain is frequent and lasts for a long amount of time, but unlike muscular pain, the exact region of bone pain cannot be specified.
2. Severe joint pains accompanied by stiffness and swelling of the joints. The patient experience pain during regular physical activities, especially during cold weather conditions.
3. Frequent fractures are caused by most bone diseases because the bone mineral density decreases drastically. Severe bone injury may be caused by mild trauma.
4. Defects in the bones can cause bowed out legs and a bent backbone.
5. A general feeling of exhaustion is often caused by bone diseases.
6. Kidney stones are an associated complication of metabolic bone diseases.

Hello, If pregnancy test is negative still then you are not pregnant and likely to be suffering from PCOS. Get evaluated and opt for a withdrawal bleed with progesterones.

Low lying placenta at 5 months is not abnormal as it will migrate upwords after 1-2 months. It can be confirmed by sonography after 2 months. There is no reason to worry with this report. If it was completely covering the os then it is difficult to migrate up-words causing problems at the time of delivery. There is no need of any extra precautions to be taken during pregnancy as it is considered as normal report. You can do all your activities with this report.

Hydration Has a Major Effect on Energy Levels and Brain Function

MD - General Medicine
Sexologist
Ask Free Question
Your brain is strongly influenced by hydration status.

Studies show that even mild dehydration (1-3% of body weight) can impair many aspects of brain function.

In a study of young women, a fluid loss of 1.36% after exercise impaired both mood and concentration and increased the frequency of headaches .

Another similar study, this time in young men, showed that fluid loss of 1.59% was detrimental to working memory and increased feelings of anxiety and fatigue .

A 1-3% fluid loss equals about 1.5-4.5 lbs (0.5-2 kg) of body weight loss for a 150 lbs (68 kg) person. This can easily occur through normal daily activities, let alone during exercise or high heat.

Many other studies, ranging from children to the elderly, have shown that mild dehydration can impair mood, memory and brain performance .

Bottom Line: Mild dehydration (fluid loss of 1-3%) can impair energy levels and mood, and lead to major reductions in memory and brain performance.

No thevtablet will not be effective. Emergency contraception has 10% failure rates so pregnancy could be there.

It means cancer is localized to breast only. This stage of disease has very good prognosis but requires further treatment and follow up.
