Light bleeding, or spotting, during pregnancy is common, especially during the first trimester. Don't worry, usually this is no cause for alarm.

Stop Following These 8 Health Rules

Stop Following These 8 Health Rules
Most of us are health conscious and know health related do’s and don’ts like the back of our palms. However, there are certain 'health facts' that are over hyped and do not hold true for everybody.

Here debunking 8 popular health myths-

1) Watch your portions: This rule is the source of major eating disorders. The moment we curb or restrict the food we're eating, we also stop agreeing with our hunger levels. We ignore the body’s demand. Instead of controlling your portion size, try asking 'Am I full? Am I still hungry?'

2) Exercise all the time: Exercise is certainly good. It helps in relieving the stress. However, vigorous exercise when you have cold or are feeling unwell may have a damaging effect. Always try to ask yourself, "Am I feeling better after doing exercise?" If the answer is "yes", keep at it. If you feel otherwise take a break.

3) Minimise your caffeine intake: Although excess of coffee can be bad, it is not really a nutritional criminal. Small doses of caffeine stimulate mental, memory and physical faculties. Regular coffee consumption may reduce the risk of Alzheimer's disease as well as some cancers. The coffee bean is also a rich source of antioxidants.

4) Drink lots and lots of water: Excessive water intake has a medical name, 'polydipsia', and it can be dangerous. Anywhere above 4 litres a day, (unless you are an athele) can disturb body’s electrolyte balance, especially potassium. The kidneys can also get damaged if they are filtering excessive amounts of fluid.

5) Stay away from alcohol: There is no denying the health and social perils of excess alcohol. However, moderated drinking has been its benefits. It increases HDL levels i.e. the good cholesterol, as well as decreases the risk of heart disease, diabetes and gall bladder disease. Particularly appreciable is red wine for it is a fine antioxidant.

6) Skip carbs to stay slim: Fad diets can be of temporary help. Carbohydrates or carbs are important for the body’s overall wear and tear. Carbs must not be completely shunned for they give energy.

7) Eat low-calorie to be healthy: When you buy food stuffs that’s labeled 'Low Cal' you're in fact buying junk. Our bodies need the entire food that we're eating in order to digest it and to retain its nutrients properly. If we can't stomach the real product, why not make our own, healthier version, and leave out all of the added sugars and heavy creams?

8) Avoid fat: When we substitute the real deal with toxic fillers in order to create a "fat-free" product, our body isn't getting the nutrition or satiation it's craving, so we keep eating. Don't skimp out or cheat yourself on healthy fats: Go for it!

Last week I got a sonography done as I am not having my periods since 3 months. The reports were normal however it said my uterus wall is heterogeneous. I am worried as to what might be the reason behind this heterogeneous wall of my uterus and how to normalize my periods.

Yes there are herbal combos to fight two major causes of leucorrhoea i. E. Infection and anaemia. First month of treatment will show results in most tough cases. Vaginal wash will clear the initial problems within few days.

I had sex during the second day of my periods and after that there was no bleeding? Why is it so.

Why is it so.
I don't think it's something to be worried about. Just maintain a menstrual calendar for 3 months and observe the cycle.

Failing to do Foreplay can ruin mood or leave you unsatisfied. Sex without foreplay means you’re not taking your needs into consideration, because foreplay is much more important to women than to men. Foreplay is a set of emotionally and physically intimate acts between couple meant to create sexual arousal and desire for sexual activity. Vagina secretes natural lubricating solution which is secreted by bartholin's gland. Foreplay also helps in secreting natural lubricant which will improve sex life.

What should be taken in meals of pregnant woman? Please tell me.

MD - Ayurveda, B.A.M.S , N.D.D.Y(Diploma in Naturopathy,Diploma in Yoga)
Ayurveda,
What should be taken in meals of pregnant woman? Please tell me.
U should have something to eat every 2 hrs. Be it a fruit or a juice or anything solid like roti. Also you should drink lots of milk and include pure ghee in your diet especially if you are 6 months or more. You can prepare sprouts of moong dal, black gram (chana) and groundnut and eat. Try not to have lots of salt and deep fried food. Drink coconut juice daily if its available. In food, have only freshly cooked meals and include seasonal vegetables, roti, rice and dal. Eat as much as you normally eat, dont stuff urself. Add a little ghee to hot dal always. Apart from this, we have monthly regime of diet specific for each month in pregnancy

Hello, Please get a serum beta hcg test dine to rule out pregnancy conclusively. If the hcg levels are less than 3mIU then you are surely not pregnant and the menstrual delay is likely to be stress induced.
