Irregular bleeding can happen sometimes after pills. I would advise you to monitor the bleeding for the next two weeks. It should settle down by itself. Also please get a pregnancy test done to rule out any pregnancy related event.

Toothache in common cold

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, Basic Life Support (B.L.S), BDS

Toothache in common cold
Common cold can cause pain in the upper back teeth. This is because the roots of these teeth are very close to the maxillary sinus which is involved in sinusitis. So, a person suffering from sinusitis can experience tooth pain even in the absence of any problem in the tooth as such.
The usual measures to treat sinusitis are sufficient to help cure the tooth pain in such cases.

My wife is pregnant for 5 months. What are do's and don't's for a healthy baby she should follow.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)

My wife is pregnant for 5 months. What are do's and don't's for a healthy baby she should follow.
Exercise/yoga during pregnancy exercise 1: walking is a safe exercise but wear non-slippery shoes with padded soles. 1. Exercise 2: do some'light' exercises as that will help your body and mind. Avoid postures that involve heavy use of abdominal muscles and backward bend. Exercise strengthens your abdominal and pelvic muscles which promotes an easy delivery. 2. While exercising, change your position slowly to avoid sudden jerks. Do not exercise if you are not feeling well or feel any pain. 3. Light yoga, meditation and breathing exercises like pranayam help immensely 4. Consult your doctor before you start exercising and especially if you have diabetes, heart disease or asthma. Folic acid during pregnancy 1. Folic acid vitamin is highly recommended as it reduces risk of brain/spinal cord defects. 2. Also helps in blood and protein production. It also helps in development of nervous system. 3. Extremely beneficial during early weeks of pregnancy- especially first three months. 4. Green leafy vegetables, peas, beans, nuts, orange juice, strawberry, banana, nuts, pulses. 5. Recommended dose of folic acid is about 0.4 mg (400 microgram) every day until you are 12 weeks pregnant. Essential vitamins during pregnancy: 1. Vitamin a: essential during 2nd trimester (4th to 6th months of pregnancy). Do not take supplements containing more than 3000 iu of vitamin a. Sources of vitamin a: (a) vegetables: carrot (gajar), potato (aaloo), tomato (tamaatar), cabbage (patta gobhi). (b) fruits: mango (aam), banana (kela), guava (amrood), papaya (papita). (c) food: whole wheat products, peanuts, yogurt (dahi), milk, butter and cheese. 2. Vitamin b6: especially essential during 2nd trimester (4th to 6th months of pregnancy). Sources (a) vegetables: carrot (gajar), peas (matar), potato (aaloo), spinach (palak), cabbage (patta gobhi), green leafy vegetables. (b) fruits: banana (kela), dry fruits/nuts, apricot (khubani), apple. (c) food: eggs, fish, beans, whole grains, milk, whole wheat bread and pulses (daal). 3. Vitamin c: especially essential during 2nd trimester (4th to 6th months of pregnancy). Sources of vitamin c: (a) vegetables: broccoli (hari phoolgobhi), cucumber, tomato, spinach (palak), lemon (nimbu), onion (pyaaz), peas (matar), green vegetables. (b) fruits: orange (santra), pineapple, mango, apple, grapes, banana, kiwi, lychee, papaya (papita), peach (adau), pear, plum (aloo bukhara), strawberry, lime juice. 4. Vitamin d:). Especially essential during 2nd trimester (4th to 6th months of pregnancy). Sources of vitamin d: (a) vegetables: sweet potato (shakkar kandi). One may take'cod liver oil' capsules or vit-d supplements. (b) food: fish, milk, soyabean powder, yogurt (dahi), butter, egg yolk (yellow portion of egg) and direct sunlight. 5. Vitamin b12 especially essential during 2nd and 3rd trimesters (4th to 9th months of pregnancy sources of vitamin b12: (a) vegetables: none. (b) fruits: none. (c) food: eggs, brown rice, fish, yogurt (dahi), milk and milk products like cheese, cow and soy milk food and essential minerals during pregnancy 1. Many woman feel that they need to eat for two as they are carrying a baby inside. This should not be the case and usually leads to weight gain after baby is delivered. You only need to increase your intake of iron, calcium, folic acid and essential vitamins. Avoid spicy and deep fried food. 2. Pregnancy is not the time for dieting as the pregnant mother and the baby may not get enough nutrients. 3. Emphasis should not be on over-feeding, but on having nutritious food. A normal woman needs about 1600-2200 calories a day and experts recommend not more than 300 calories extra for pregnant women. Special precautions from 4th month of pregnancy: 1. Proteins: especially essential during 3rd trimester (7th to 9th months of pregnancy). For growth, repair of muscle, skin, hair and body tissues. Protein deficiency leads to low immunity, hairfall, feeling of tiredness. Proteins are not stored in our body as any excess protein is converted to energy or fat. (a) major protein sources: egg white (white portion), milk, soybeans/soymilk, fish, cheese, tofu. (b) other protein sources: beans with wheat, nuts, curd, yogurt (dahi) 2. Carbohydrates our main source of energy. Stored in liver and muscles. Carbohydrates are used the most by our body duringexercise. Hence, it is important during pregnancy to consume a diet rich in carbohydrates. (a) instant/rapid carbohydrates energy sources: banana, milk, sweets, sugarcane juice. (b) slow carbohydrates energy sources: beans, bread, cereals, potato, pulses, rice. 3. Iron: especially essential during 2nd trimester (4th to 6th months of pregnancy). Helps in production of haemoglobin and transportation of oxygen to blood cells. 1. Largest mineral found in our blood which also helps in producing energy. 2. If taking iron and vitamin c supplements, do not take them at the same time but after a gap of about 3 hours. Taking vitamin c tablet helps in absorbing iron. Sources of iron: 1. Vegetables: spinach, dark green leafy vegetables, lentils (daal). 2. Fruits: avocados (makhanphal), peach (adau), pear (nashpati), pumpkin (kaddu), raisin (kishmish), pomegranate (anaar). 3. Food: eggs, fish, meat, cereals, almonds (badam), whole wheat bread, soybean. 4. Calcium 1. Helps form strong bones, teeth, healthy gums, muscle growth and prevents muscle cramps. 2. Taking a small dose an hour before bedtime helps achieve sound sleep. Sources of calcium: 1. Vegetables: cabbage, dark green leafy vegetables, broccoli, figs (anjeer), flax seeds (san beej). Food: eggs, milk, dairy products, yogurt (dahi), almonds (badam), soybeans/soymilk. Dietary risks 1. Stay hydrated: dehydration increases risk of miscarriage. So drink at least 2 litres of fluids every day. Water, fresh fruit juices, soups that are low in salt, milk (low or no fat) and soy milk are best fluid options. 2. Do not have excessive papaya as it sometimes may trigger a miscarriage. 3. Must wash all fruits and vegetables before eating to reduce chances of infection. 4. Avoid more than 2 cups of non-herbal tea/coffee in a day as caffeine may lead to miscarriage. 5. Avoid excess spices, frozen or high mercury sea food like oysters. Non dietary rissks 1. Avoid viral vaccines (measles, mumps, mmr), explosure to x-rays or close contact with microwave. 2. Visit your doctor at least thrice and prefer not to have more than 2 sonographies done over 9 months. 3. Avoid cigarette, junk food, alcohol till delivery as they may result in low birth weight or restrict development. 4. Gradually decrease your intake of caffeine/coffee. Avoid having too much oil or ghee. 5. Don't take very hot water baths or hot tub/sauna baths as they may alter your body temperature.

DGO, MBBS

Pcod itself is due to weight gain in most of the cases. You have to change dietary habits. Avoid junk foods, reduce weight, eat salads, high protein diet, stop eating sweets, rice, go for walking. Yes, you have to take medicines. I am not sure whether ayurvedic medicine will work. It is hormonal problem. Ovary is full of tiny follicles.

Why your anti-bacterial hand wash may be more dangerous than soap

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
General Physician, Gurgaon
Why your anti-bacterial hand wash may be more dangerous than soap

It has been observed that roughly 3 out of 4 antibacterial bars and soaps contain triclosan which is a certain type of drug previously used in hospital premises. The usage of triclosan in other products like hand wash and gels is yet to be verified and proven safe. Due to lack of proper evaluation there have been a number of instances where antibacterial soap has done more harm than good. Here are a few reasons why you must reconsider using antibacterial soap:


1.  It creates bacterial resistance
Triclosan is closely associated with a number of health issues, bacterial resistance being the chief among them. Repeated usage of antibacterial soap can promote the growth of antibiotic resistant bacteria. It might effectively terminate regular bacteria but it is basically useless against the resistant bacteria. The bacteria resistant formula present in these hand washes might cause complications in the long run.

2.  It can potentially disrupt endocrine functions
Triclosan has a close resemblance to the thyroid hormone and hence can tip off its receptor sites. This occurrence can lead to major complications like artificially induced early puberty, fertility issues, obesity and sometimes even cancer. Hence it can be said that antibacterial soaps should be avoided in order to prevent such far reaching side effects.

3.   It can cause serious health problems in children
Triclosan present in certain hand wash can adversely affect the development of the immune system in children. At a growing age, children develop natural resistance to certain diseases. Prolonged use of antibacterial hand wash and soap can diminish their exposure to bacteria and obstruct the proper development of their immune system. Therefore it is safer to use normal soaps instead which are as effective and do not contain triclosan.

4.  It is extremely harmful for the environment
Prolonged and regular usage of hand wash containing triclosan would in turn increase the amount of this drug that gets flushed through the drainage. Triclosan is generally left untreated in the sewage treatment plants which later enters the water bodies and disrupts the food chain since it primarily affects the growth of algae. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a general physician.

3 Easy Non-Surgical Ways to Lose Weight!

M.D, MBBS
Cosmetic Physician, Mumbai
3 Easy Non-Surgical Ways to Lose Weight!

Obesity is a common problem in today’s world; especially with the changing food habits, increased stress levels and poor lifestyle choices coming into play. In women, weight gain can primarily occur because of hormonal imbalances and pregnancy. The various causes of weight gain in women are:

  1. Menopause: On reaching menopause, hormonal imbalances can increase appetite and lead to weight gain.
  2. Stress and pregnancy: Pregnancy is a period when a woman tends to eat a lot and put on weight. Pregnancy can also result in piling up of stress because of the anticipation as the D-day draws nearer; increased stress levels lead you to eat more and you tend to put on more weight, thus increasing risks of suffering from obesity eventually.
  3. Diseases: Complications in the liver and the kidneys may cause you to gain weight.

There are many options that a woman can opt for weight loss. Some of the best non surgical treatment for weight loss is:

  1. Ultrasonic lipolysis: This is a non-surgical technique to reduce fat from abdomen, thighs, hips, back etc.It involves HIFU (high intensity focalized ultrasound) wherein, ultrasonic waves are directed on areas in the body which have excess fat. The process involves removing fat tissues through the natural drainage system of the body i.e. the lymph system.
  2. Endermology: Endermology is a technique that is used to increase blood circulation and reduce cellulite (persistent layered fat) content in the body. The procedure entails using rollers which are rolled on the skin to stretch the connective tissues, which results in cellulite reduction. It also revitalizes the tissues in the body and prevents bloating. The treatment is painless and is known to relax the tissues in the body. 
  3. Mesotherapy: Mesotherapy is a non-surgical technique that is used to reduce fat from the body. The procedure involves administering medications to the concerned areas of the body which have excess amounts of fat by means of injections. It enhances the circulatory and immune system of the body; it is a painless procedure and does not require post-surgical recovery time and so considered as a best weight loss treatment.

Add salt after cooking

MBBS, AFIH, PGDMLS, MD-HRM, MD-HM
General Physician, Gurgaon
Add salt after cooking

Whenever we cook food, if the salt is added before the starting of cooking, the iodine gets evaporated and one does not get the advantage of 'iodised namak'.

This may lead to less iodine intake which is a basic need for Thyroid Hormones .. like T3 and T4 (Tri -Iodothyronine and Tetra - Iodothyronine) where the name itself suggests that they are ionised compounds.

Thus, if you remember this fact that cooking would evaporate iodine, you would develop a habit of cooking without adding salt and then add salt during the serving of the food. It would control Blood Pressure and Iodine Deficiency both as one would add less salt if he or she is hypertensive.

It is not so the one who has pcos will have infertility as well. Pcos is basically a lifestyle disorder with hormonal imbalance, it does not have complete cure, but it can be managed with lifestyle changes, such as start doing some exercise daily, healthy diet intake without skipping meals, avoid coffee, take fruits, vegetable and dairy products.
