What can be the possible side effects if consuming Thuja 1m taken 15 drops twice a day for a period of 2.5 yrs.

Hello- Thuja is generally safe when taken by mouth in food amounts, but there isn't enough information to know if it is safe when used in usual medicinal amounts. An overdose of Thuja can cause uneasiness, vomiting, painful diarrhea, asthma, seizures, and death.

Pregnancy - Understanding Fertility After Early Miscarriage!

Gynaecologist, Gurgaon
Pregnancy - Understanding Fertility After Early Miscarriage!

Miscarriage is a spontaneous abortion that occurs around the first to second trimester of pregnancy; wherein the foetus is automatically expelled from the uterus due to its inability to survive because of environmental influences or chromosomal abnormalities.

Unless the miscarriage occurs due to a severe health issue, the fertility of the woman may not necessarily be compromised. Studies show that one miscarriage doesn’t predict the possibility of a future one. Once the bleeding and pain subside, it is the emotional trauma that must be addressed to begin with which poses a greater threat than the physical one.

The fertility of the woman remains unaltered and the body can be ready after the menstrual cycle returns to normal. However, it still requires some time for the woman to be physically and emotionally prepared to go through another pregnancy. The medical history and reasons behind miscarriage must be evaluated before the couple decides to try again.

Complications after miscarriage only occur if the woman is above 35 years of age or has a rather unhealthy lifestyle. The concept of fertility varies from person to person and it isn’t possible to pass a common judgement about fertility in this scenario.

The gynaecologist mostly suggests couple therapy after the trauma of the miscarriage. The psychological loss is given more importance before considering another attempt by most doctors. The fertility loss only occurs with age and unhealthy lifestyle and it is widely accepted and proven that a miscarriage has little or nothing to do with it.

Ways to Increase Fertility

If a couple is certain they are ready to conceive again, there are a few things a woman can do to help her chances of becoming pregnant-

  1. The first thing to do is to stop any unhealthy habits. These include smoking, drug use, or alcohol abuse. It’s reported that high consumption levels of caffeine are detrimental to conception so that should also be limited.
  2. Eliminating stress can also help. Eliminating stress is one of the most important factors in having a successful pregnancy. So, it makes sense that getting over-stressed can reduce fertility levels.
  3. Eat healthy. If depression was experienced due to the miscarriage, it’s possible that the woman’s diet has not been the healthiest. It’s common for women who have experienced a miscarriage to have a loss of appetite and not eat enough or to eat out of sorrow, eating too much. More attention should be paid to the diet and more healthy foods added to meals.

Talk to a Doctor

If a couple is having issues with fertility after early miscarriage, they should talk to a doctor. There are many options available. More than likely, the first thing the doctor will do is to test fertility levels of both the man and the woman. If you don't want to visit a doctor for this, there is a new at-home kit available called Fertell. This test, retailing for approximately $100, measures fertility levels for both a man and a woman.

If it is found that there is a loss of fertility after early miscarriage, fertility drugs or therapies may be prescribed for a period of time.

The doctor may report that there are no issues with fertility. At this point, it would be a good idea to use an ovulation predictor in order to time effective intercourse. This isn't the most romantic idea, but it may well be one of the most logical ways for a couple to conceive.

Bottom Line

Fertility is not normally decreased after miscarriage. A woman's fertility levels return to normal as soon as her menstrual cycle returns. Fertility may be decreased due to emotional issues as a result of the miscarriage. However, if a couple is ready, both physically and emotionally, there should be no physiological hindrances to conception.

The decision to try again is not an easy one. However, fertility won't typically be an issue.

You should continue treatment as per your doctor's advice. As all your reports are fine so keep trying during ovulation days. And if you do not get positive result in next 5-6 month then should go for iui.

Hello, if you are still breast feeding your child then menses are likely to be regular due to high prolactin levels, so start weaning your child and if pregnancy is to be avoided use oral contraceptive pills.

DNB (Dermatology)

You need to have a thorough checkup from a gynecologist. You may have to undergo ultra sound scanning and couple of blood test mainly hormonal to find ou the reason for your period problem and also for the facial hair growth, facial hair growth per say can be treated with laser hair reduction using diode laser or long pulse nd: yag laser by a qualified dermatologist. Needs multiple session of treatment.

My friend and her boyfriend had unprotected sex on the 24th and 25th day of her cycle, where usual cycle are in a range of 25-29. She hasn't got her periods till date and also afraid that is there any chance of being pregnant.

MD - Bio-Chemistry, MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
Hello lybrate-user, hello dear, do not worry. Following are the reason for late periods with abdominal pain: 1. High level of stress 2. Change in life style 3. Late ovulation 4. Excessive exercise 5. Drugs: birth control pills, tyroid medication, excessive tea and caffeine 6. Thyroid problem 7. Hormonal imbalane: I think it is most common reason in your case just do pregnancy test after 5-6 days to confirm pregnancy. If this will remain long time in future, consultant with gynecologist. Do hormonal tset: estrogen, progesteron, lh, fsh and thyroid profile hope this may help you. Wish you good health.

Apples Are One of the Healthiest Foods a Person Can Eat.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Delhi
Apples Are One of the Healthiest Foods a Person Can Eat.

Delicious and crunchy, apple fruit is one of the most popular and favorite fruits among the health conscious, fitness lovers who firmly believe in the concept of 'health is wealth.' This wonderful fruit is packed with rich phytonutrients that, in the true sense, indispensable for optimal health.

They are high in fiber and vitamin C, and they are also low in calories, have only a trace of sodium, and no fat or cholesterol.

Often called a 'miracle food' and 'nutritional powerhouse,' an apple a day really may keep the doctor away.

Apples are some of the most popular and delicious fruits on the planet, and there is nothing like biting into a bright, red, juicy apple to quench your thirst and satisfy your sweet tooth, all while boosting your health in a major way.

Aside from the normal ability of fibrous fruits to make us feel full and increase satiety, thereby reducing appetite and overeating, apples have another unexplained ability to help in our weight loss aims.

Now below are mentioned the Health Benefits and Risks of regularly having Apple Fruit.

Health Benefits -

Apples are loaded with vitamin C. Almost half of an apple's vitamin C content is just under the skin, so it's a good idea to eat apples with their skins. Apples contain insoluble fiber, which provides bulk in the intestinal tract.

The bulk holds water that cleanses and moves food quickly through the digestive system.

The health benefits of apples include improved digestion, prevention of stomach disorders, gallstones, constipation, liver disorders, anemia, diabetes, heart disease, rheumatism, eye disorders, a variety of cancers, and gout.

It also helps in improving weakness and provides relief from dysentery.

Health Risks -

'Eating apples in excess will not cause any side effects,'

No side effects are generally known or expected to occur with apple fruit. However, apple seeds should not be eaten, as they contain cyanide and are poisonous.

Apple seeds, also called pips, contain a substance called amygdalin, which can release cyanide, a powerful poison when it comes into contact with digestive enzymes. Whole seeds will pass through your digestive system relatively untouched, but if you chew the seeds you may be exposed to the toxins.

One or two will not be harmful, as the body can handle small doses of cyanide, but if you or a child chews and swallows a lot of seeds, you should seek medical attention immediately. A very large helping of apple seeds may be fatal.
