You can take homoeopathic treatment for liver problem. It can be safely taken during pregnancy. Your Hb level is very low. It is very important to have a good hemoglobin content to ensure a healthy foetus. Please take your iron supplements regularly. Also take roasted Chana, black Chana sprouts, anar,beetroot, spinach and other green leafy vegetables as available, dates ,Gur etc if you are a non vegetarian, take chicken but steamed or roasted and not fried.

How to Improve your Appearance?

How to Improve your Appearance?

‘First Impression is Last impression’, haven’t we heard this line a lot many times in our lives To just live up to that line we all make so many efforts. We take care of our looks, of our figure, of our hair, of our clothes, of our communication skills, of our body language; in short we work on our entire personality just to live up to this line.

Do you know why?

Because this line sometimes helps us or sometimes ruins us. This line helps people judge us, helps people comment on us, helps people just praise or abuse our outer looks.

But is that it?

You should not let your outer looks define who you are and that does not mean you do not take care of yourself and start looking ugly, it just means you should look good but for your own good and for anyone else. You don’t need to stress yourself to look good, try to flaunt your natural beauty, try and be who are, try and cherish what uniqueness you’re gifted with and not try to be like someone else, that’s because you’re original don’t label yourself.

Its fine, if your hair are not straight and silky, after all they are hair not some straight line or a silky curtain. Let them be how they are, don’t ruin them by ways of blowing, softening and straightening, because these are all temporary solutions, for something long lasting first you need to accept yourself the way you are and then comes everything else.

No matter what type of hair you have – straight, curly, wavy, soft, dry, tangled, etc. You need to take good care of it and nourish them. Firstly, whenever you wash your hair, you should oil them a night before or two hours before shampooing. Then do not use conditioners very frequently, use it only once in three times of shampooing. Resort to natural conditioners like curd, also you can apply egg white, aloe Vera, and may be some natural herbs. Then you should comb your hair at least two times a day to avoid tangling and hair fall.

Then it is okay to not look fair but be spotless, not to have soft skin but at least a healthy one, not to have a supermodel figure but at least be fit. All these things add to your persona, take good care of them but not by ruining their uniqueness.

Remember, the value of original is more than the copy.

Hello pain during periods is called dysmenorrhea. Soo many girls gets this problem it's due to contraction of uterus. Let her take methi or fenugrik powder early morning during her periods. Once get checked up her thyroid profile. In hypothyroidism its common. And rule out anaemia.

Hello- vaginal itching generally associated with white discharge. It can not be treated with anti fungal medicines which you have tried. Follow these tips- 1) maintain proper hygiene, wear loose clothes and inner wares. 2) mob the area with wet cotton and apply neem tail twice a day. 3) wash your vagina twice daily with trifla powder decoction. 4) treat your menstrual problem if having.

If hormonal tests are normal, your hypomenorrhoea will also correct with age. Your bmi also seems to be normal. Just have healthy diet, avoid starch and high carb foods, take vitamin b and vit d supplements. Treatment of acne by dermatologist with topical applications can be done. There is no need to take treatment for pcod at your age.

Hi, I'm a 14 years old girl.

I didn't get my period yet but there's also a problem in my period, Cause when I got it It's like a flood flowing and lasts until 1-2 months and skips form 3-4 months that's also the reason why we go to a ob gyn for a check up last summer, And then the ob gyn gave me some trust pills which has numbers of days in it and has yellow and brown color. But still my period skips 1 month now only and when I got it it only lasts 5 days. Then in the evening I only ate a little amount for dinner and just ate breakfast w/ one scoop of rice only in the 10/11am, I didn't ate lunch, But I take snacks SOMETIMES in the afternoon (That's the way I eat and been months since I do this) And I also often drink soft drinks. I drink them like water when I get thirsty. So later on in that evening. I slept at 11pm and just suddenly woke up at 1am w/ sort of nausea, A little Abdominal pain, I got cold, I urinate frequently but a just a little amount of urine, I farted a lot, My tummy is bloating, I cannot finish a yawn, I have a little blood in my rectal, I have hard and liquid stools, And I cannot go back to sleep so I stay awake until 6am.

There is nothing abnormal at this age. For your periods, you are already under treatment of obs and gyn. Rectal bleed may be due to 1st part of constipated hard stool that proceed loose stool. Your food habit is under quantity and under nourishing causing constipation. Change your food habit and concentrate on your studies.

Calcium tablets - Are They Good or Bad?

MBBS
General Physician, Bangalore
Calcium tablets - Are They Good or Bad?

For many people, popping a calcium tablet is something which has benefits, but at the same time does no harm. After all, who does not want to have strong bones and healthy teeth? The unfortunate part is that things are not so simple and a lot of research has debunked this.

Take, for example, the findings that when an old woman has calcium, the fracture rates are not all that different as compared to one who has not had calcium supplements. In addition to this, it was also found as part of a study that there is no positive impact on the mineral density of the hip.

As a matter of fact, calcium tablets and supplements can pose a significant risk, as well. While it is true that calcium does help in the effort of getting heart disease, an amount which is greater than the dietary limit does not. Actually, the excess calcium may increase the risk. This is true when it comes to calcium from supplements and not calcium which is absorbed by the way of food. So, what sort of additional risk is there? A study found that people who receive calcium from a tablet or another similar source have about a 140% greater chance of a heart attack!

How much is too much?

A thousand milligrammes of calcium in excess of the requirement on a daily basis is said to increase the risk of death from CVD or cardiovascular disease by about a fifth. Not a trivial amount, by any measure.

But why does this happen?

The key to answering this question comes from how the calcium is absorbed by the body. When calcium from food is eaten, the rate of it being released is a lot slower as compared to calcium from tablets. Also, when there is excess calcium, it is not absorbed and kept in reserve by the body but is excreted in the form of urine. So, this calcium going through the kidneys can cause some trouble there, as well!

Yes or No?

So, what is to be done in order to make sure one is having a sufficient amount of calcium? Well, there are a lot of sources and consuming things such as dairy products and fish, along with dark leafy vegetables are some great ways to get natural calcium. Only if a person has very low calcium levels should calcium tablets be consumed? It is well worth remembering that too much of a good thing is a bad thing! If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.

Can you suggest a medicine that can avoid pregnancy after 2 weeks of intercourse? Or suggest a method to know either she is pregnant or not?

MBBS

After Teo weeks there is no meficine to avoid it if it has already happened and only way to confirm it is by ultrasound abdomen to rule out the pregnancy otherwise if she misses her periods then you can test her urine for pregnancy and take meficine to abort it if it us positive.

MY WIFE IS IN MENOPAUSE STATE FOR THE LAST 5 YEARS & HAVE NO PERIODS. SHE NOW STILL REQUIRES ANY PRECAUTION DURING THE SEX FOR NOT GETTING PREGNANT

Vaidya Visharad
Ayurveda, Narnaul
Dear,Menopause is a natural hormone (estrogen) deficient state that occurs at the age of 45-55 years. After the age of 40 years, ovaries reduce their production of sex hormones. As a result, the menses as well as other body functions are disturbed. Finally the menses cease permanently.

It is not big risk in view of short time after last delivery. Usual risks of pregnancy, extra risks because of age, higher chance for Trisomy 21 and risk of previous Caesarean and that too short duration after that. Little higher chance of weakness and anaemia as not enough time to recover. Nutrition for yourself, newborn baby and one who is inside you also becomes little difficult. Meet Obstetrician at the earliest.

You can go to a gynaecologist and get vaginal swabs done and then depending on the results be started on a course of antibiotics. In the meantime use lacatcyd/ intiwash 15minutes before a bath around your vulva and vagina and see if that makes a difference.

Hello, Oral sex cannot lead to pregnancy in any ways. For pregnancy sperms have to reach the vaginal orifice, so if there is no intercourse or fingering involved with sperm smeared finger, no chances of pregnancy at all. Regards

Disinterest in sexual/intimate behaviour may be complex to understand. Though it is very real a problem, caused by hormonal disturbances, I caution that it may be too hasty to term your case as hormonal imbalance. Personal stress and worries may cause you to be disinterested for a period and mostly can be self limiting. Find out what are the things running in your mind. If you are running thru a rough patch in life, you most probably will return to feeling excited after the problems resolve. Broaden your view. I'd suggest you to meet a psychology counselor if you wish.

Two possibilities are there. If you have tried for pregnancy and now neither pregnancy test positive nor getting periods suggest of late fertilization. In that case, some more time is needed to get test positive, but chances of continuity is doubtful in some cases. Another possibility is that your usual periods are getting late due to some other reason best is to wait for one more week or else can go for a abdominal usg, which will tell you everything.
