Hello, She was in her safe period when you had sex so pregnancy is unlikely, the delay is due to ipill intake possibly. Anyhow rule out pregnancy with a serum beta hcg test conclusively first and if negative then can safely wait for her menses to return.

Feeling of sex has no role in conception. Check your other tube if it's normal by hsg after consulting gynaecologist. Discharge of semen in vagina during fertile period is enough for pregnancy if other parameters are normal.

Best Diet For A Healthy Gut

Best Diet For A Healthy Gut

Contrary to popular belief, not all bacteria are harmful to us. Within our body, each 'human' cell is complemented by 10 microbial cells. These range from bacteria in the gut to viruses and fungi in other parts of the body. Gut bacteria help us to digest food, produce vitamins, communicate with the immune system and create small molecules that help the brain to function.

Thus, it is essential to have a healthy gut, by which we mean a gut with plenty of friendly bacteria. There are many different types of bacteria living in the gut. Each of these thrive on different foods. Thus to have a healthy gut, your diet should include a variety of cereals, fruits, and vegetables, etc. Here are a few tips to keep your gut bacteria healthy.

  1. Increase your fiber intake: A diet that is rich in fiber is the best way to promote the growth of diverse microbes in the gut. This includes fruits, vegetables, beans, lentils, cereals and nuts. Fiber also helps prevent constipation and has been linked to lowering the risk of cancer. To prevent the buildup of gas and bloating it is advisable to increase intake of fiber and drink plenty of water with all your meals.
  2. Include probiotic foods in your diet: Probiotics need not only be taken in the form of supplements. This can easily be incorporated into your daily diet. These can be defined as live bacteria and yeasts that help the digestive system. Yogurt is one of the most common sources of probiotics. Kimchi or fermented vegetables, miso, cheese, buttermilk, fermented condiments and lentil sprouts are other examples of probiotic foods you should include in your diet.
  3. Try having some carminatives in your meals: Carminative foods soothe the digestive system of the body. Some common carminatives are cumin, ginger, oatmeal, cardamom, cinnamon and fennel. While cumin helps with the digestion of black beans, cooked oatmeal lines the stomach and soothes it.
  4. Eat weight loss friendly food: Being overweight not only affects how you look, but also affects the digestion process. When you lose weight one of the first things you would notice is a lowered amount of abdominal discomfort as your gut begins to feel healthier. 

This is because weight loss lowers the pressure on the lower esophageal sphincter. This does not allow the valve to open more than necessary and hence prevents food and stomach acid flowing back into the esophagus. Along with increasing your intake of fruits and vegetables, switch your cooking oil to olive oil and notice the difference.

Pcos is not a disease like typhoid, but its a lifestyle disease, and it is possible to treat it. From what you have sugegsted, if you have done ovulation studies, the doctor will know whether you have ovulated or not. By ovulation I mean whether the ovum has come out of the ovary, through rupture of the dominant follicle. This is seen on sonography as a ruptured follicle with free fluid. So that itself will show ovulation. In patients with pcos the ovulation day varies, depending on what medicines you are given, so it is different for each month. Generally if you are ovulating each month on medicines, it also means you will conceive, just give yourself time and keep treatment regular.

  9. Garlic, whether consumed raw or cooked, can help you to fight the killer that cancer is.

Im eight month pregnant. What type of diet should I have follow to increase blood.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist,
Im eight month pregnant. What type of diet should I have follow to increase blood.
I guess by now you must be under the supervision of a gynecologist and must have seen the baby's growth to be adequate. If you have anemia, the doctor must have prescribed some iron tablet or syrup and calcium tablets to maintain health during pregnancy. By 8th month the blood increase in the body is complete and if you have low hemoglobin, meaning anemia, then you must supplement the tablets with hemoglobin enhancing ingradients: these are" iron: it is available in many natural foods like spinach - raw as salad or cooked dark green leafy vegetables jaggery (gur) as" chikki" with ground nuts or dry fruits, or as any other preparation in your household ragi (mustard like red coloured millets) available as powder in dry fruit stores, or as papad and laddoo (in maharashtra at least) dark raisins and dry fruits like anjeer beet root try to take these things in every day diet. Vitamins b12 (in sprouted beans, and non veg food (marrow) folic acid in walnuts, cluster beans (gavar) coriander etc all this will help increase iron and other essential elements required to increase hemoglobin in blood the cheapest way to get iron is to" saute" every vegetable you eat in a" tava" make of iron.(avoid use of non stick tavas. This may make the vegetable darker, but it adds iron to it.

I am a 31 years old woman & experiencing a severe pain on the right side of my nipple. Can it be a breast cancer? Pls advice.

Alternative Medicine Specialist, Bhubaneswar
Hi, it may not be a breast cancer. It could very well be due to a localized infection/ inflammation seen commonly in breast feeding women. Nevertheless, to be on a safer side, I would advise you to seek prompt medical attention from an experienced gynecologist given that you are experiencing severe pain. For the time being, however, you may apply an alternating heat and cold treatment for couple of minutes that may alleviate pain. Stay well hydrated and take a tablet of chewable vitamin c (500 mg) daily for the next 10 days. Simultaneously, keep your diet and lifestyle streamlined, you can take tomato soup to which fresh herbs like garlic, turmeric, black pepper, ginger, coriander leaves and oregano has been added. Your doc shall be able to advise further on, in particular, once he/ she gets to clinically examine you in person. Hope this helps. Take care and all the very best.
