Hi. If the period cycle is regular with a 28-30 day cycle then fertility period is between 10 today and 16 th day of cycle. If you had unprotected inter course on the the 6 th day then you could be safe. This is not 100 percent accurate, but you can take the chance.

Yes there is. You should never lose hope. If you can afford I would suggest you can try a third cycle of ivf and see if that works. Also important is to understand why ivf cycles have been failing.

Immediately you have to go to the hospital as bleeding with pain at 7 months is not good for both mother and baby. Consider this message as very urgent and go to the hospital, where they will do ultrasound asap after initial examination.

The market is flooded with different types of supplements required for a healthy body. The same is in case of whey protein, it comes in powdered form and is available across stores.

Need for whey protein in the body

  • The main reason why you really need to take whey protein is that it is helps to lose fat and preserve the muscles of the body.
  • The amount of protein that is required by recreational athletes is about 0.5-0.75 grams of protein each day for every pound of their body weight.
  • Adults can take about 0.9 grams per pound of their body weight. Whey protein acts as fuel for the body on which your muscles run, and it is very vital for revival after a workout.

The most effective use of whey protein is that it protects against different forms of cancers like colon cancer and prostrate cancer. It is very important to consult a medical professional and then include whey protein in the diet to fight against cancer.

I'm 21 year old, having girlfriend and engaged with her, My question is whenever we are trying to do sex, no matter how much I force but my penis can't put into her vagina. We had tried lots of time, some are saying that we have to make our foreplay more, I tried it but worst. Can you please say what can be there and how to solve it?

Use some lubricant like coconut oil. Still if it does not go insert fingers to see it it is going. Some girls vagina contracts while sex so may be the case for your girl.

Vaginal discharge is most often a normal and regular occurrence. However, there are certain types of discharge that can indicate an infection. Abnormal discharge may be yellow or green, chunky in consistency, or have a foul odor. Abnormal discharge is usually caused by yeast or bacterial infection. Many women experience this type of discharge during ovulation. If the discharge is stretchy and thick, it's likely just a sign that you're ovulating. In some cases, however, creamy discharge can be an early sign of pregnancy. For some women, this is the first sign they notice, and it's referred to as leucorrhea. It's normal to have a white/yellow vaginal discharge that does NOT have an odor (smell). Vaginal odor, itching, burning, pain and/or a different discharge are symptoms of an infection. If you have any symptoms of a vaginal infection, call your health care provider. Most of the time, vaginal discharge is perfectly normal. The amount can vary, as can odor and hue (its color can range from clear to a milky white-ish), depending on the time in your menstrual cycle. For example, there will be more discharge if you are ovulating, breastfeeding, or are sexually aroused.

Laparoscopy is just a diagnostic procedure unless yu opt for surgical removal of the cyst which is only a temporary solution. Endometrial cysts are similar to follicular cysts, only difference is they are filled with blood like fluid due to presence of endometrium like cells in the cyst. Which also means that just as hormones are the reason for PCOS, it is for endometrial cysts. You can read my previous posts on PCOS for better understanding. So while you can do laparoscopy as diagnostic, it wud be wise to opt for something that will address your basic hormonal imbalance. Homeopathy addresses the cause of hormonal imbalance as well the cyst and the menses and the conception. Please find a reputed Homeopathic Physician in Mumbai and have a personal consultation.

1 For low haemoglobin take treatment I am sure your gynaecologist must have advised. Later repeat haemoglobin report to confirm. 2 Next period first may be little delayed or as usual.\ 3 Next pregnancy mostly no problem, very rarely problem yes that is why abortion should be avoided. 4 You can have sex but important to use family planning method which fails the least or to have celibacy.

Just get your ultrasound obs. Most of the time abdominal pain is due to pregnancy induced gastritis due to more of hormonal changes. Try taking bland diet and interval meals.

How Spinach Is a Superfood for Your Body

How Spinach Is a Superfood for Your Body

While we all believe that green leafy vegetables are to be included as part of our regime, not all of us know in detail the amount of goodness that is packed in these. The first thing that comes to mind at the thought of leafy green vegetable is the tender, green, luscious looking spinach.  However, not all of us know the amount of goodness and nutrition it stores within in.  Spinach, though appears to be delicate and light, puts up a strong fight against inflammatory problems, stress-related problems, cardiovascular issues, bone diseases, and various types of cancers.

  1. Minerals and vitamins: Fresh green spinach is loaded with a multitude of vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, C and K. Major minerals contained in spinach include manganese, iron, magnesium, copper, potassium, phosphorus, and selenium.
  2. Anti-cancer benefits: The antioxidant properties in spinach come from carotenoids and flavonoids, and it is loaded with about a dozen flavonoid compounds, thereby getting a strong anti-inflammatory and anti-carcinogenic properties.  Spinach helps in reducing inflammation in the stomach lining and other areas, thereby reducing chances of intestinal cancer.  It also provides significant protection against prostate cancer.  The incidence of skin papilloma is also reduced with increased consumption of spinach.
  3. Anti-inflammatory benefits: The good amounts of vitamin C, E, A, zinc, manganese, selenium are beneficial for reducing stress and thereby reduce incidence of heart attacks and high blood pressure.  Spinach also is rich in protein and contains some peptides (small protein units) which inhibits angiotensin-converting enzyme, which is responsible for increasing blood pressure. This is another way how spinach helps lower blood pressure.
  4. Eyes: Lutein and zeaxanthin are two carotenoids, which protects the eyes against cataracts and macular degeneration. 
  5. Bones: The bacteria in the stomach convert vitamin K1 in spinach to vitamin K2. While vitamin K1 supports the bones by reducing the number of osteoclasts (cells that break down bones), vitamin K2 activates osteocalcin, which promotes bone formation. The high levels of calcium and magnesium only make it even better for the bones.
  6. Digestive system: With the good fiber content it has, there is reduced instance of constipation. The anti-inflammatory property helps keep the stomach lining healthy and less prone to ulcers.  It also helps flush out toxins and keeps the body alkaline, which helps beat stress.
  7. Skin: The various minerals and vitamins in spinach reduces chances of skin infections and also adds to the glow of the skin.  The itchiness and dryness of the skin also is reduced with regular use of spinach.

So the next time you are thinking, which is one thing you should pick up when you go to the market, think spinach.

Hello, it is always in the best faith to rule out pregnancy with a urine pregnancy test and if negative then you should opt for a hormonal profile and an ultrasound pelvis to look for the possible causes as pcos or hyperprolactinemia/ hypothyroidism.
