my sister is 30 years old. She feels like somebody is killing her with a knife on the chest. She feels alot of pain from pain. She doesn't see anybody killing. She isn't hallucinating. She doesn't do anything all day. She just sits in one corner of the house and when somebody asks her. How's she. She starts crying. Sometimes she looks ok when she is working like when she is making food. But she says it's hurting from inside. She had not got periods also since the problem started. Is this some kind of mental disorder? If this is psychological problems then how is it affecting her menstruation! What is it? Please help.

Hi my friend this is beginning of schizophrenia. Be careful. She is having visual hallucinations. I will prescribe some harmless and effective flower remedy available in homoeopathy shops. Buy from a reputed homoeo shop who sells original medicines. Mix 7 drops of white chestnut + 7 drops of aspen + 7 drops of cherry plum + 5 drops of mimulus. Add these to 100 ml water. Take this mixture every 12 hours for a period of 1 year. If any problems consult me online. Ok do not worry you will be all right.

Nausea, vomitings and inability to eat is very common in first 3 months of pregnancy and these symptoms are actually a good sign of pregnancy. It means that the hormone levels are increasing rapidly in your body which is very much expected. Ask her to take small and frequent meals through out the day (that means that she should eat something or the other every 2--3 hours in the daytime. She can take any antacid which is available in the market like syrup gelusil to decrease the acidity of the stomach. These symptoms will settle down with passage of time probably after 3 &1/2 months of pregnancy.

11 common-sense sex rules that can save your life!!!

Love should not motivate you to take anything for granted because the pleasure of sex will be all forgotten if something goes wrong – say an unwanted pregnancy, or worse, a Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD).

Sex is beautiful, but it is as dangerous and risky as it is rewarding.
This is the reason why you must ensure that you give yourself and your partner maximum protection when you decide to get together.

Love should not motivate you to take anything for granted because the pleasure of sex will be all forgotten if something goes wrong – say an unwanted pregnancy, or worse, a Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD).

Here are 11 common-sense tips to assist you in making sex safe and sweet:

Try to use a condom always – as a first rule, always use a condom when in doubt because it is your next surest protection after abstinence. This rule becomes even more important if you have random sex partners.

Keep your genitals clean – a clean genitalia is the first step to safe sex. Leaving dirt around your genitalia is allowing for harmful organisms to proliferate. You will transfer these orgasms during sex.

Urinate after sex – Sex experts have found out that urinating after sex help to prevent Urinary Tract Infections to a large extents by cleaning out the urethra.

Clean sex is the best sex – it is best if you always go for sex clean, and this means taking a shower at least. You cut down the risk very much by being clean. Germs and bacteria on your bodies will be exchanges during sex if you don’t clean up …remember there are STDs that are transmitted skin-to-skin.

Wash your hands before sex – even if for anything you have to go into sex without cleaning up, your hands should at least be washed, especially if there will be fingering involved. Germs and bacteria behind fingernails for example are a major risk…

Don’t insert same fingers into the anus and vagina – you will end up transferring very harmful germs and bacteria if you inset the same finger (sex toy) into the vagina and anus simultaneously. If you must involve both, then use two different toys or use a condom and change it

Use lubricants – penetration is always better when you have a lubricant involved. It makes the woman able to accommodate the penis more and even heightens the sensation for her. The flavoured ones can also make the air a bit more pleasant…

Keep your pubic hair shaved or trim – there is nothing as good as smelling and looking fresh down there. A clean and aired pubic hair is not only inviting but healthy…you stand lesser risk of skin infections when the place is neat…

Avoid sex where the genitalia have open sores – open sores are the easiest ways to transfer STDs and you should be careful how you handle them. Best thing is to avoid Never have oral sex where the genitals or mouth is injured. Injury around those places can be opportunity to transfer STDs so stay off oral sex – including kissing, until it heals.

Treat every infection the day you notice it – it is a gamble that never pays to allow a sexual infection to develop. The best thing is to deal with it the moment you notice anything strange about your genital region…

Be careful what you use as sex toys – these days people get daring when improvising household items as sex toys and they end up hurting themselves. If you look up sex injuries online, you’ll be shocked. So, before you use anything as a sex toy, ensure that it is not sharp, does not have any electric parts and cannot break easily. Also, it must be CLEAN always….

Hi I am 34 weeks pregnant and yesterday noticed that there is cavity in my teeth and deep inside. Had been to dentist and doctor took X-ray and advice me for root canal. Since there is no pain and upon extra care can I postpone it till my delivery or is it better to get it done? As am worried about the safety of anesthesia and antibiotics and also just one month to go for delivery.

Dentist, Ahmedabad
First of all there's no need to take medicines after root canal. Mild discomfort will be there but you can bare that as you don't want to take medicines.. We can't say exactly when it will start paining but ya if you'll keep that cavities free of food after meal and gargles property after every meal and brush twice a day specially just before sleep at night then surely you can slow down the progression of cavity. It will be better if you postpone the R.C.T. till your delivery. Have a warm wishes for tout upcoming baby. God Bless Her/Him... Jay Swaminarayan.

Eat small but frequent meals. Avoid long gaps in between meals. Avoid junk as far as possible. Exercise at least 4 times a week. Lastly be committed. Remember it's a lifestyle change and not a one time thing. There is no short cut. It's a balanced intake that will last you longer. All the so called diets will only give you muscle and bone loss. The fats will remain as it is. So, try to first follow this seemingly simple tips. You can't target a single body part. You need to work on overall fat loss and toning. Hopefully your body has not shut down the metabolism or plateaued which is common when you try to crash your diet. I am sure this suggestion will at least help you with initial fat loss. If you cant break the plateau you might need professional intervention.

Hello since it was 5 days ago, now wait for the period to come. If you don't get your periods, do a pregnancy test. If that is positive, take hormonal pills available in drug stores. Nothing should be done at present.

Homeopath, Hyderabad
Unless your periods are skipped you can't be able to find out any symptoms and also unable to confirm pregnancy and once your periods are delayed by 1 week then only you undergo kit test and also urine for HCG to confirm it. There may be chances of pregnancy if your periods gets skipped and your periods occur regularly then no pregnancy.

Why do you get PCOS?

MBBS, MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, FMAS, DMAS
Gynaecologist, Noida
Why do you get PCOS?

Polycystic ovarian syndrome is the condition when a woman's sex hormone levels get imbalanced. This can cause women to have irregular periods and may also have an impact on their fertility. Women suffering from PCOS also tend to grow small cysts in their ovaries which can also lead to severe health problems like diabetes and heart disease, if left untreated.

What causes PCOS?

The exact cause of PCOS is not known. However, the condition may be triggered by hormonal imbalances and genetic factors. Women are more susceptible to developing this condition if their mother or a female family member also has the condition. Excessive production of androgen, which is a male sex hormone, may also lead to this condition. Women suffering from PCOS tend to have high levels of androgen. The formation of eggs and their release during ovulation can be delayed by high levels of androgen. High androgen levels may result from excess insulin present in the blood. Poor lifestyle and irregular eating habits contribute to obesity which intern leads to increased insulin resistance and hence delayed ovulation and irregular cycles leading to infertility.

What are the symptoms of PCOS?

The type of symptom in case of PCOS varies from person to person. Since PCOS is characterized by low levels of sex hormones, this condition may lead to symptoms such as:

- Excessive hair growth on stomach, face, chest, toes and thumbs
- The breast size starts to shrink
- There is a change in voice, making it deeper
- There is excessive loss of hair from your scalp
- Sometimes the face is filled with acne and the skin turns oily
- There are fertility problems like having trouble in ovulating or recurring miscarriages
- Frequent depression or mood swings
- Facing breathings problems while sleeping
- Obesity

Are You Pregnant? Take Care of Your Diet

Pregnancy is that period of time in a woman's life when she is excited about giving birth to her baby. She is not only responsible to keep herself healthy, but her baby is also her responsibility. What she eats, how she lives and her daily routine will affect the baby. Thus, to have a healthy pregnancy it is necessary that you exercise regularly and eat well. You should also avoid those things that may hurt your baby. 

Take care of what you eat:
During pregnancy it is important to get proper nutrition so that you and your baby are healthy. For slow and gradual weight gain, it is necessary to pay close attention to the folic acid, calcium and iron intake. However, if you are obese, then your weight gain regime will be different from others. 

The diet during pregnancy should include:

  1. Intake of fruit and vegetables is important as they are good sources of vitamins, minerals and even fiber. They are good for digestion and also help in preventing constipation. Eat fresh fruits and vegetables daily.
  2. During pregnancy carbohydrates are also important as they act as an important source of energy. Different food items that are rich in carbohydrates are potatoes, bread, breakfast cereals, pasta, rice, noodles, millet, maize, oats, yams, sweet potatoes, and corn meal. It is better to eat whole grains and potato with the skin on as they are rich in fiber. 
  3. Intake of protein is very important during pregnancy, and thus you should take lean meat, pulses, beans, nuts, fish, and eggs. All these items should be cooked well so that you do not face any problem in digestion during pregnancy. 
  4. It is also necessary to eat dairy products like milk, cheese, butter and yoghurt during pregnancy. They are important because they contain the calcium and nutrients that are necessary for the growth of the baby. 

What to avoid?
Just as you should eat certain food items to be healthy, there are certain foods that must be avoided to be fit and healthy. Avoid the following during pregnancy

  1. Drugs and alcohol
  2. Medicines that are not prescribed by your physician
  3. Smoking tobacco
  4. Fried and oily food
  5. Fishes those are rich in mercury like shark, tilefish, swordfish and those fishes that are caught in local waters are not considered safe. 
  6. Too much intake of caffeine is also hazardous for a pregnant lady. 

Thus, by following the above-mentioned  diet tips you can keep your baby and yourself healthy. Always get advice from your physician for any decision that you take during pregnancy.

5 Really Simple Ways to Correct Your Sitting Posture

Does your work require you to sit for long hours? Following a bad sitting posture for a long time can cause a lot of health problems like depression, low energy levels, back or neck pain, fatigue, headache etc. But the good news is that you can correct these posture defects very easily by following a few simple tricks throughout the day. Here’s how.

1. Sit up straight
Sitting up straight is easy if you follow these simple rules.
a. Use an ergonomically designed chair made according to your height and weight as it will provide your body with the required support to sit straight. You can buy such a chair online from any leading furniture shopping website.
b. Ensure that your back remains aligned to the back of your chair to prevent slouching or leaning forward.
c. Try to keep your shoulders straight and squared, paired with an upright head and aligned neck, back, and heels, similar to your standing posture.

2. Ensure that your ears are in line with your shoulders
Use this small trick to maintain the correct posture throughout the day. Whenever you lean forward or backward too much, your ears won’t be in line with your shoulders and you will know that it’s a wrong posture.

3. Uncross your legs
The correct sitting posture requires you to keep your feet grounded. Be careful not to cross your legs and leave one of them hanging in front of you. If your feet find it difficult to reach the ground, you can use a footrest or a small stand for placing them.

4. Take the help of a lumbar support pillow
A lumbar support pillow is a cushion that has been designed to support your spine and help you maintain a straight sitting position. Every time you sit on the chair, the pillow ensures that you sit straight. You can roll up a thick towel and use it instead of a lumbar support pillow as well to get the same benefits.

5. Do some desk exercises at regular intervals
Exercising after sitting for long hours can help you to relax by loosening stiff muscles, besides having the added benefit of correcting your posture. Take small exercise breaks and try out the following workouts, while still sitting on your chair-
a. Maintain an upright position and raise your arms above your head, while ensuring that your elbows remain straight. Bend to your right first and then left, while keeping your fingers interlocked.
b. Extend your left leg forward, while remembering to keep your toes pointed towards the front. Change the position of your toes so that they point upward. Follow the same steps for 5 for times and then do the same with your right leg.

Maintaining a correct posture will not only keep you away from the health hazards of a bad posture, but will also enhance your appearance and increase your energy levels.
