Your follicular monitoring has to be done and when hcg injection is being given then follicle rupture occurs within next 36 hrs and you are supposed to have intercourse during that very time in increased frequency for next 3-4 days to increase chances of pregnancy

10,000 Steps a Day. Fitness All The Way
Walking 10,000 steps a day, keep you fit in every way.

Walking has been considered the most easy form of exercise. An average person walks about 3000-4000 steps in a day but it would be really good for your health if you can increase the number of steps up to 10,000, that’s is what every doctor advices people who want to stay active and fit.

Here’s the plethora of health benefits if you are able to walk 10,000 steps in a day.

1. You burn as much as 400 calories by walking 10,000 steps in a day
2. Helps prevent brain-shrinkage
3. Prevents osteoporosis
4. Boosts vitamin D level by exposure to sunlight
5. Tones up your muscles, legs and arms
6. Keeps your heart healthy and strengthens it
7. Keeps us mentally and physically strong
8. Reduces risk of stroke, diabetes and cancer
9. Reduces risk of early death by 30%
10. It makes your immunity grow stronger
11. It lowers disease-risk drastically
12. More beneficial for those who want to reduce weight
13. It is a good substitute for exercise
14. It helps in keeping your memory sharp
15. Increases your stamina of walking thereby increasing stamina required for physical work
16. Keeps your energy level high
17. Keeps you happy and healthy
18. It improves blood circulation
19. It lightens up your mood
20. Walking 10,000 steps also improves your sleep

You do get more or less similar benefit if do a 30-minute walk daily but walking 10,000 steps in a day is the best! As far as counting 10,000 steps is concerned various mobile apps and devices can be helpful.

Sometimes there can be occasional pain during pregnancy for no explainable reason. It could be due to long standing, lifting heavy weights, rough traveling, uncomfortable postures, sexual intercourse, etc. It can also be due to stomach upset, constipation, urinary infection. Get a sonography done to check for Cervical length, if its less than 3 cm, that could also be the reason and might require Os tightening.

Practically it was period and no need to worry about pregnanacy, however theoretically ideally to rule out some rare problems it is always better to consult gynaecologist and if required some investigation.

Hello Doctor, I am 24 year old female. I have some lumps in my both breasts. I did went through multiple tests and found that they are Fibroadenoma. Is it mandatory to go for a surgery and remove them from my body or simply can I just ignore? Thanks in Advance.

MBBS, MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Hubli-Dharwad
Let me clearly tell you that finding a lump in breast can be a scary experience but not all lumps in breast are cancerous. Fibroadenoma is non cancerous. It is usually found in female less than 30 years of age it consists of breast tissue and connective (stromal )tissue while most women have single lump ,10-15 %of women have multiple lumps. If you are diagnosed of fibroadenoma it does not necessarily mean it has to be removed. Depending on your physical symptoms ,family history, and personal concerns you along with your doctor can deciede on wether it should be removed now let me tell you the indications in which fibroadenoma is usually removed 1.if it hinders the natural shape of breast 2.if it causes pain 3.if you are concerned about developing cancer 4.if you have a family history of cancer 5.if you have recieved questionable biopsy results.

Top Health Benefits Of Super Food Avocado

Top Health Benefits Of Super Food Avocado

Top health benefits of super food avocado

Avocado commonly know as butter-fruit & biological name: persea americana

Names in other languages: Makhanphal (hindi), vennai pazham (tamil), alpukat (marathi), mager nashpati (urdu), benne hannu (kannada)

Cardiovascular health:-

While 77% of its calories come from fat, the majority comprises of oleic acid, a monounsaturated fatty acid which reduces dangerous ldl cholesterol in the blood while increasing the favourable hdl cholesterol. The fats in avocado resist heat-induced oxidation which makes avocado oil a healthier cooking oil.

Weight loss:-

Avocados have a high fibre content (7 grams of fibre in a 100 gm serving), with almost 25% of the fibre being soluble fibre. Plus the monounsaturated fatty acidsare not stored as fat and work as slow burning energy, leaving you feeling full for longer.

Hyper tension:-

Potassium is important to keep blood pressure levels at its best behaviour, but unfortunately, most people do not get enough of this mineral in their diet. This could increase the risk of heart attack, stroke and kidney disease. Avocados have a richer potassium content than bananas. The oleic acid and dietary fibre in avocados further help normalize blood sugar levels.

Cancer prevention:-

Avocados are filled with antioxidant carotenoids like alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, beta-cryptoxanthin, lutein and zeaxanthin which protect the cells against free radical damage.

Diabetes control:-

Living with diabetes? make avocados an essential part of your daily diet and see your ‘bad’ ldl cholesterol drop and the ‘good’ hdl cholesterol go up thanks to the oleic acid content. The high monounsaturated fats also help reduce high triglyceride levels and improve insulin function andblood glucose levels.

Soft, healthy skin:-

The monounsaturated fats and omega-9 fats improve the skin appearance by maintaining the moisture in the epidermal layer and repairing damaged skin cells. A healthy intake of monounsaturated fat is important to regulate sebum production to control unwanted acne and blackheads. If you are pressed for time and are unable to use avocado face packs, learn to incorporate a moisturizing cream like olay total effects day cream in your routine that also has anti-ageing properties.

Arthritis treatment:-

The high levels of monounsaturated fats, phytosterols, antioxidants like vitamin e, vitamin c and various carotenoids help curb the inflammation that causes arthritis.

Constipation:-

The high soluble fibre content kicks the bowels into action and improves digestion.

Pregnant women:-

A higher concentration of folate (folic acid) is one of the most important avocado health benefits for women, both before and after pregnancy.

Better eye health:-

Eyes are something we pay the least attention to but an avocado-rich diet can do that job as not only are they rich in antioxidant including lutein and zeaxant but also increase antioxidant absorption from other foods. Lutein and zeaxanthin reduce the risk of macular degeneration and cataracts.

Hello. As homoeopathy has wide range of medication, will need a detailed history of yours in regard to your nature, behaviour, likings, disliking, thermal reaction, appetite, thirst, etc. Management: increase your iron intake. The best sources of iron come from animal products - mainly red meat. However, we get a good proportion of iron from non-animal sources too. Iron sources include: red meat and offal - eg, beef, lamb, pork, kidneys, liver, heart, black pudding (note pregnant women should avoid liver). Fish and shellfish. Eggs. Cereal and cereal products. Nuts and seeds - eg, hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, peanuts, pecans, walnuts, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, pine nuts. Green leafy vegetables - eg, broccoli, spinach, watercress, kale. Beans and pulses - eg, baked beans, peas, lentils, chickpeas, black-eyed beans, kidney beans. Dried fruit - eg, raisins, apricots, prunes, currants, figs. Miscellaneous - eg, plain (dark) chocolate, cocoa powder, mango chutney. Meantime, prescribing you patent medicine - schwabe's millefolium pentarkan and biocombination- 1 - both thrice daily for a month. Revert me back after a month. Take care!

The 4 Essential Constituents of a Detox DIET

The 4 Essential Constituents of a Detox DIET

A detox diet is a temporary food habit, which involves detoxifying your body without causing much stress. Detoxifying includes cleansing your body of toxins, bacteria, and viruses that build up inside it. It usually lasts for a few days, and a detox diet consists of foods that are easy to digest and low in fat and protein. These foods help liver function and increase your metabolism, which brings about the detoxification progress.

Some of the constituents of a detox diet are:

1) Drinking copious amounts of water - Water performs many bodily functions like regulating body temperature, hydrating the body, regulating bowel movements etc. One such vital function is flushing out toxins. The more water you drink, the more toxins get flushed out of your body. Drinking eight glasses of water each day is advisable. Plus, water also helps to control hunger.

2) Munch on fruits and vegetables - Replacing your daily diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables, which are rich in fiber, can help remove toxins. It also provides the body with necessary nutrients and antioxidants. Fruits rich in fiber are spinach, broccoli, avocado, blueberries, beans, artichoke and many others.

3) Eating oranges, lemons or limes - Citric acid helps to dissolve toxins within the body and increases and improves the functioning of the liver. Lemons contain the highest amounts of citric acid and eating them on a daily basis can be highly beneficial.

4) Drinking herbal tea - Herbal tea, which is a huge source of antioxidants and water, helps to flush toxins out of the body. Green tea is a good example of this and is loaded with anti-inflammatory properties as well.

The cause may be hormonal problems, in most cases it gets cured with time. Still, you have to make sure that there is no other illness like blood disease, thyroid ds etc.

Homeopathic treatment for polycystic ovarian syndrome_
Nowadays I am observing that pcos cases are increasing day by day, may be because of faulty food habits, environmental factors. But there is complete cure in homoeopathy for this. The treatment is time consuming and should not be expected in a few days. Complete observation regarding change of symptoms in the patient, so frequent clinical follow ups are required.

Symptoms--
Delayed or absent menses
Irregular menses
Excess hair growth on face and other body parts
Weight gain

Treatment~
Homeopathic treatment is very good for treating this, also add below mentioned food in your died for speedy recovery,
So best of health ladies.

Hello lybrate user, - if you adopt ayurveda its can be cured naturally, - avoid sour food like curds, chees paneer for few days - have a glass of warm water after meals compulsory. - if cycles are regular the take below medications= - hingwashtaka churna 1spoon with 1/2 glass of warm water daily twice before food - aloevera ras 20ml with water twice a day - bcz of harmonal variation you might be getting acne and hairfall, once it is normalized other issues will reduce.
