During process of healing inflammatory exudate generally comes out at lesion site. It completely heals between 7-14 days. If there is some infection, anti biotics should have taken care of. But your culture shows no infection. Better to take herbal suoooert. Drink little curcumin powder with milk 1/2 tsp bd. Also apply jatyadi oil + panchgun oil mixed dressing at sutural site. It will heal and dry completely and also relieve pain. Your allopathic treatment is not bad but now you may get support of harmless and side effect less ayurveda. Hope it solves your question.

She is suffering from obsessive compulsive disorder but I will not suggest any medicines for it. With reports of water & air pollution & other contagious diseases flashing everywhere, one does get scary about hygiene. She needs counselling from someone who can understand her & whom she trusts. Show her doctors and nurses working non stop among all kinds of patients & doing great jobs of saving lives of others. Tell her about not being selfish and finicky about just her own life. May be simple advice helps her.

We’ve heard over and over again that weight loss is important in managing PCOS and that diet and exercise are more effective than medications in improving your PCOS symptoms 1. Eat organic food. Avoid junk. 2. Drink lots of water. 3. Exercise regularly. Brisk walking is a good idea to keep weight under control. 4. Visit nature places and spend time alone. 5. Take steps to calm your mind. Worrying about the problem can only make it worse – listen to music, read or spend time gardening. Butterfly Pose can be very helpful in PCOS. Don’t flap your legs too much; instead try holding the posture for long. 1. Even more helpful is SuptaBadhakonasana (Reclining Butterfly Pose), which works just like the Butterfly Pose,this time lying down. This is what makes it extremely relaxing. To enhance the experience, play some soft music and place cushions under your hip. For beginners, it is a good idea to use cushion support while doing this posture. 2. Bharadvajasana (Bharadvaja’s Twist) is a seated spinal twist that helps PCOS patients. 3. Chakki Chalanasana (moving the grinding wheel) is a very simple exercise with several benefits. It helps massage the liver, kidneys, pancreas, uterus and the reproductive organs. 4. Shavasana (Corpse Pose) is another useful posture to try. In PCOS, the more you relax, the better you feel and this posture will help you completely relax at the end of your yoga session. 5. Padma Sadhana practice is also considered very effective for PCOS patients. 6. Make sure you don’t hold the postures that put pressure on the abdomen (Bow Pose, Superman Pose, Cobra Pose and Boat Pose) for a long time. 7. A few rounds of Sun Salutation at a faster pace can be good for weight loss; however, it is a good idea to practice only a few slow rounds daily for more relaxation. Myself being a homoeopathic doctor will advisse you to take homoeapathic treatment along with your present treatment I have developed some very effective combination homoeopathic medicines for PCOD with very favourable ressultss.Have faith in Homoeopathy a these homoeopathic medicines are very safe and free from side effects.

7 important things to note before you let the woman stay on top

7 important things to note before you let the woman stay on top

7 important things to note before you let the woman stay on top

If you really want to make sex a pleasurable experience for your woman as much as it is for you, it is important to let her be the boss once in a while. But, before you do so, here are 7 things to know

Anyway, here are 7 things to know as you go about giving women the power:

It is perfect for couples where the male partner is significantly heavier.

It imitates the way most guys masturbate with their back on the bed, making it a familiar posture for men.

It gives women unprecedented control and allows them to control the thrusting.

It's great during pregnancy because it doesn't put any pressure on the belly.

It can cause injuries like penile fractures are care is not taken.

It doesn't allow for much clitoral stimulation

It may lead to faster loss of erection because the penis is pointed up with the force of gravity working against it and causing the blood to flow away from the tip.

I guess your last period was april 17 and not may 17. If you say you are pregnancy then that means it's around 4-5 weeks. If you wish to discontinue or terminate the pregnancy you should consult a gynecologist for an appropriate and safe method of termination. Do not use medicines without consulting a doctor.

Regarding ivf treatment, as your gynecologist has already started the protocol don't discuss with other doctors for any medications which might affect your protocol. They will decide if your not well when to go for embryo transfer. Have faith in your doctor. Bp patients can also go for the treatment.

Ideally she should have atleast one baby before the age of 30, as post that there is decline in fertility, as women have their biological clock ticking, so sooner you plan better it is, however with the latest egg frozen technology, no age is a bar as you may store them and use them even up to age of 40 .but that incurs expenses and Ofcourse with growing age the female starts having other issues as well.

The medicines that we see today, including the heavy antibiotics and the normal syrups, never existed century ago.

Unfortunately, we lack medicinal plant information and that is why never think of having some quick doctors (medicinal plants) at home.
