If 6 months have been elapsed, you and your wife should consult a doctor to find out the cause why there is no issue coming and the doctor will start treatment. But there is no method, by which a baby of desired sex can be produced.

If mother is negative and father is positive, there are chances of baby to be positive. Which in turn will be treated as foreign blood group in mother and will will cause breakdown of foetal blood and anemia. But this mixing of blood occurs during delivery or following abortion. So first baby remains safe. To protect other babies from it, an Anti-Di given following delivery.

Hi v. R. Having heavy bleeding at 53 years of age is not a good sign. It indicated a hormonal disturbance or some growth. Please do not ignore this and get her evaluated properly by a gynaecologist in your area. Avoid using any hormonal preparations to delay the periods without medical supervision. All the best.

All the nonliving and living things are made up of five great elements

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Faridabad
All the nonliving and living things are made up of five great elements
According to Ayurveda Science , All the non living and living things are made up of five great elements i.e. Space, Air, Fire, Water, & Earth.
All these five great elements are present in living organism in the form of three biological humours called Vata, Pitta & Kapha.
Vata is a Combination of Air & Space. Pitta is combined with Fire And, Kapha is a Combination of Water & Earth.

In Ayurveda Vata(वात) Pitta(पित्त) & Kapha(कफ) are termed as Tridosha(त्रिदोष).

Tridosha are the forces which govern the body's all physical and psychological activities. If all these dosha are in balanced state, an individual is said to be healthy But due to any reason if any of these dosha gets vitiated or imbalanced, one gets suffered from Disease.

while dealing any patient, an Ayuvedic physician try to make his diagnosis by analysing the levels of Vata, Pitta, & Kapha in the body.
Bringing Back the imbalanced Dosha status in to Balanced Status is the main goal to be achieved by Providing proper diet lifestyle and Ayuvedic Home remedies or Herbal combinations.

Missing a period doesn't always make you pregnant it might be because of many reasons, first have them checked. irregular periods will be mainly due to thyroid dysfunction, PCOD or other hormonal disorders so first have a hormonal profile, thyroid profile and USG abdomen done to rule out the exact cause of your missing periods. Coming to bloating sensation and easy satiety this might be because of acidity and this is the common symptom of acidity hence try to avoid acidity and constipation and make your bowels clean, I think you will be free and if you still need any medication for your problems please write back to me in detail

Dry n itchy vaginal is most likely a fungal infection .please use a feminine wash which maintains the natural ph and use cotton undergarment s to prevent sweat from collecting there n leading to infection. As for medictation you need a local examination and get the proper prescription.

Hi doctor, My periods date was extended more than 15 days, I don't know y, Please need your advice and reasons for delay.

Vaidya Visharad
Ayurveda, Narnaul
Hello Dear,Periods occur when the egg formed during each menstrual cycle in the female body is not fertilized and hence ejected out of the reproductive system along with blood and several other tissue cells. The duration of each menstrual cycle is about 28 days Most women will experience their monthly period right from the time they are 13 to the time they are 50. For many women, their monthly period is nothing more than an annoyance; but other women may suffer some problems. Visit us at www.Malhotraayurveda.Com

As you r already taking triquolar tablets then there is no need to worry. If you started taking it after the sex with ejaculation which was on the fourth day of menses, there is no need to take ipill.

Let Your Liver Live: 6 Habits Harming Your Liver

PGDCC (Cardiology ), CCEBDM (Diabetes), CCGDM (Gestational Diabetes), CCMTD (Thyroid), MBBS
Cardiologist, Udaipur
Let Your Liver Live: 6 Habits Harming Your Liver

The liver is a vital organ which means a person cannot survive without it. The liver works with other organs in the digestive tract to digest, absorb, and process food. The main function of the liver is to filter the blood that it receives from the digestive tract before passing it to the rest of the body. The liver detoxifies and metabolizes the medicines that you take. It also secretes bile and important blood clotting proteins.

Being such an important organ, it becomes imperative for you to stay away from habits that can damage it.

Here are some common habits that are damaging your liver:

1. Too much sugar

Having excess amounts of sugar is not harmful to just the teeth but the liver as well. Liver converts fructose ( a type of sugar) into fat. If you consume foods with refined sugar, it can build up as fat in the liver leading to liver diseases. Experts suggest that consuming too much sugar can be as harmful to the liver as having excessive alcohol. Avoid foods that contain refined sugars and corn syrup that has high fructose content. Limit foods with added sugars, such as soda, pastries, and candy.

2. Self-medication

The painkillers that you pop frequently for a sore back, that annoying headache or a toothache can damage your liver in the long run. It is okay to take over the counter pain medications like paracetamol once in a while but make sure that you do not resort to taking them on a regular basis. Always consult your doctor for chronic painful conditions and advice on pain medications.

3. Excessive alcohol

Consuming alcohol in large quantity can cause irreversible damage to the liver. When alcohol is consumed in excessive amounts it interferes with the ability of the liver to get rid of toxins from the body. Studies suggest that having three glasses of alcohol every day is a direct risk for liver cancer.

4. Too many supplements

Taking supplements instead of obtaining those nutrients from your food is a habit that can damage your liver. Unless recommend by your doctor, avoid taking supplements indiscriminately. Eat a well-balanced diet rich in green leafy vegetables, fruits, dairy products, and protein. Always consult a doctor before you start taking a supplement even if it is an herbal supplement. Remember that all medicines are processed by the liver.

5. Sleep deprivation

You may not know but not getting a regular sleep can damage your liver. Studies show that when people are sleep-deprived their livers cannot process the fat efficiently leading to fat accumulation which eventually leads to liver damage. Getting a good sleep also acts as a repair process for the whole body including liver. Make sure you get a good 7- 8 hours of sleep regularly.

6. Soft drinks

Studies have shown that people who drink too much soft drinks have higher chances of developing the non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Since these drinks are packed with sugar, so it is best to avoid them for improving your overall health.

So, go ahead and change these habits that are harming your liver and embrace a healthy and active lifestyle for a healthier you. Stay healthy, stay happy!

How many meals should you really have in a day?

B.Sc.(Hons), P.G.Dietetics
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Gurgaon
How many meals should you really have in a day?

How many meals should you really have in a day?

With the advancement in nutritional science, researchers have realised that lesser gap between meals means lesser-stored fat which in turn also helps to control blood sugar, boost metabolism and aids in weight management. After three hours of a meal our blood sugar starts falling and after four hours the digestion is complete. After 5 hours we are ready to gobble up whatever comes in our way as the body is looking for a way to refuel. This may lead to consuming high-calorie food.

Eating at regular intervals can save you from binging, keep your blood sugar level stable and help you stay energised. Also, digestion itself is work for the body and the activity leads to burning calories. However, one needs to be careful and not consume very high-calorie meals as that would increase the risk of chronic diseases.

Since everybody is different, there cannot be a set number of meals prescribed for everyone. It depends on when a person feels hungry and how that person would like to deal with it. But you need to understand your body's need for replenishment and provide the nourishment it requires. Hence, according to your body's requirement you should have small meals at short intervals which could range from six to eight in a day.

Normal delivery is a natural process and all pregnancies are designed to be delivered normally. It happens without any precautions. There are no ways to prevent cesarean section. People will advise you to do clean the floor and all that but all that is not proven to be effective. No extra precaution is needed for delivering normally. There are certain things which are not in your hand i. E. Position of the baby, passage of motion by the baby inside uterus, amount of fluid by the side of baby. All these factors and many more can decide your mode of delivery. At this stage of pregnancy there is not much exercise you can do but make sure you keep moving around which will help the blood circulation to flow.
