Hello, these are progesterone side effects and she is likely to experience her withdrawal bleeding in next few days which generally occur in next 5-7 days post taking the ipill. As she has taken the second pill before waiting for the withdrawal bleed, hence the effects are more. She should just increase her water intake to dilute the effect of progesterone and use hot fomentation for sore breasts. Once the bleed arises, the symptoms shall subside and pregnancy shall be ruled out was well. If no menses in next few days then get a serum beta hcg test done to rule out pregnancy, possibly due to ecp failure.

First go for ultrasound to confirm that bleeding is not continuing due to miscarriage you had on 17 jan. If something is still retained inside the uterus it has to be removed. Bleeding should stop completely. After you get regular cycles you can try for pregnancy again after some basic tests.

6 Early Morning Tricks to Kick-start Your Metabolism

6 Early Morning Tricks to Kick-start Your Metabolism

6 Tricks to activate metabolism in the morning 

Boosting your body's metabolism is largely related to burning calories and reducing weight. Try these effective methods esp. if you are overweight, if you are already lean, never over-do anything, be it exercise, eating or drinking. 

6 ways that can help you improve your metabolism. 

  1. Workout: Working out can be the easiest and best way of boosting your metabolism. Do walking, running and cycling. Sweating will tell you how much you have worked out and if you continue it for few months, the results will be favorable.
  2. Eat fresh fruits and salads: Don't starve yourself by not eating food properly. Avoid fatty and fried food but have as much fresh fruits and salad as you can. This will not make you put on weight. Keep taking fruits and salads at short intervals because these have an ability to get digested early as compared to fatty food.
  3. Take plenty of water: For increasing your metabolism, kick start your day with at least 3-4 glasses of water. It will help all your other efforts of reducing weight in sync. It will keep your body hydrated.
  4. Drink lemon in warm water and green tea: Waking up early can actually boost your metabolism; you can see the results after following this habit. Along with this, metabolism will get a boost if you get up half or one hour early. Leave the habit of taking normal tea, instead start taking green tea, it will not only be healthy but since it's an antioxidant, it will take care of your immune system as well.
  5. Lift weights: Lifting weights can give you instant results. Within a month of lifting weight you will experience boost in your metabolism. But this must be done under trainer's guidance.
  6. Eat boiled eggs and never skip breakfast: Having boiled eggs in the morning will fulfill your protein intake. Also, it will keep your stomach full for a longer time. On a way to boosting your metabolism, it's recommended not to skip breakfast at any cost.

25 year female and 4 months pregnant. Vaginal bleeding since 2months. Fasting and ppbs sugar levels are 83, 99 resp. But gtt values are 170, 164, 120, 99 each taken at half an hour intervals. 15th week scan said placenta is 2cm above os. Does my sugar level variation cause vaginal bleeding or is it due to low lying placenta? please help me soon. I am worried.

General Physician,
You have impaired glucose test. You check your thyroid profile also. Placenta is not too risky as per the report. It is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (self-monitoring of blood glucose? smbg). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of fasting sugar (fbs) and 2 hours after food (ppbs) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ insulin will be needed. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me privately with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touchly,

Yes please do stop. It is better to not take it. You can stop it for a week and see if the rashes improve. Then restart and see if the rashes reappear.

What causes excessive white coloured vaginal discharge after taking ipill? Please answer in detail.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
That is cervical mucus getting expelled as a result of ipill. Cervical mucus is present at the mouth of the uterus which is expelled before each menses but now your menses were not due so mucuc is only coming out. If there is no itching or fowl smell then it can not be infection, which only needs to be treated.

Hi Ritesh ideally you should avoid sex during first 3months of pregnancy as it may increases risk of abortion.

Health Benefits of Garlic-

Garlic is just magnificent and phenomenal. I am providing few of the basics known and reliable home remedies for some specific ailments, which you could try at your home .

If you have cold and flu, then take small amount of garlic every day until the infection disappears. Garlic tends to reduce the frequency of colds and flu without any side effects. A suggested dose would be two or three cloves of raw or cooked garlic a day.

We all face horrid acne, blemishes, blackheads during our teens. If you want to reduce it, or if you just want to glow up your skin, then take two cloves of raw garlic regularly with warm water early in the morning. It works as a blood cleanser and clean your system internally. Do not eat chocolates, spicy or oily food during this treatment and rinse your face five times a day with cold water. Drinks lots of water daily to flush off toxic waste from the blood and urinate whenever you feel that your bladder is full .Else, apply a cut clove gently on the affected area only if you have no sensitivity to it.

If you have High Cholesterol Level, use garlic in your food. This is the better way for heart patients to reduce their cholesterol level. Modern medical science suggests one reason that garlic might reduce cholesterol , i.E. "Garlic is a proven anti-oxidant. This property might help to prevent LDL (Low Density Lipo Protein) from being oxidized. In this way the cholesterol build-up that clogs the arteries could perhaps be reduced by garlic.

If you are very fat and want to loose weight, squeeze half lemon juice in one glass of luke warm water and drink it with two cloves of raw garlic regularly twice a day (morning and evening), for about three months. Avoid using starchy foods and fats. Do exercise regularly. You'll amazingly fell a great change in your body.

If you have Wrinkles, and you want to use anti ageing cream, it would be better to use 3 cloves of garlic regularly as it has a powerful antioxidant effect, which help to protect the body against damaging "Free Radicals. Remember, out skin is made up of collagen and it looses elasticity on yearly basis. Therefore, use garlic and do exercise regularly for the positive results.

If you have Earache, put two or three drops of warm garlic oil in the ears.

Take garlic to boosts the weight of babies in the womb. Thus, when they are born, they are heavier than they would have been if you hadn't taken garlic. Some babies are born too small, so garlic is a definite boon in these cases too.

Use two raw garlic daily to reduce the risk of cancer, due to its Anti-Carcinogenic properties. It helps prevent cancerous compounds from forming and developing into tumors. It also inhibits the growth of tumors.

If any insect bites you at the seaside, you just crush the garlic and apply it to the affected area to reduce pain and to remove poison.

Polymenorrhea polymenorrhea occurs when the menstrual cycle is less than 21 days long. This is the same thing as saying your period comes every 21 days. Polymenorrhea-more frequent periods or shorter cycle length that is less than 21 days. For example every 15 days. Oligomenorrhea - less frequent periods or longer cycle length for ex: 35 days or more menorrhagia- heavier than normal menstrual flow metrorrhagia-irregular bleeding between periods patients having an history of vaginal infections. Pelvic inflammatory disease, dysfunctional uterine bleeding, hormonal imbalances. Excessive use of any hormonal drugs. Causes polymenorrhea. We have permanent solution in homeopathy for such cases which treats from root cause. For best result consult online.

I am 33 year old and I have a big and flappy tummy which is due to pregnancy. As my baby is 1 year old I want to reduce my tummy fat. So please help me with it.

Hello, hope you had a normal delivery of the baby. No problem it can be reduced eventually. Pls do exercise daily. Yoga, meditation also works. Don; t sit for long time. After eating go for a 10 mins walk, which helps you to maintain flat tummy. And eat before 2 hours of the sleep. Drink more water in a day. If you are a feeding mother still, I suggest take a good food at this moment then I will recommend some food supplements which full fill your diet. Add omega-3 and protein at the moment which is good for baby too

It is better to undergo urine examination and if it turns out to be normal and still the problem continues, you can think of undergoing USG.

Sex in pregnancy at any time is generally okay but it all depends on an individual case and comfort of the couple. Clarity is needed with sexologist to be safe and sure.

I'm 20 old and my girlfriend is 21. I had sex with my girlfriend before 7 day without any protection during her periods is their any chances of getting pregnant I'm worried and she didn't eat any types pills.

MD, MBBS
General Physician, Noida
If she is already on pills or she took i-pill within 72 hours of intercourse or if she was in her safe period, she may not get pregnant. If you had sex when she was in 12th-16th day of menses (when menses started is counted as first day), and she has not take pills, chances of her getting pregnant are very high. If she was on 8th-11thday of 17th-20th day of menses pregnancy may or may not occur. Risk is there. If it was 1st to 7th day or 21st to 28th day of her menses, there are no chances of her getting pregnant.

Hi Before I get married I was too thin after I got my daughter. I became fat because I used to take ipill is it just because of ipill m fat.

PGDD, RD, Bachelor of Home Science

The reason for weight gain is not exclusively the pill. There are a lot of changes in our lifestyle after marriage. Eating habits, style of food, increased work. These can cause weight gain. Also post pregnancy we tend to neglect our health by not eating nutritious foods. So, eat small and frequent meals. Avoid too much junk foods. Exercise at least 3 times a week.
