That is ok. Because you have to wait till the date of your last menses. When you miss your periods by at least 2days, then you should do pregnancy test. Before that nobody will be able to tell you whether you are pregnant or not.

Since you are still young you can try for 2nd pregnancy, but pre pregnancy blood sugars should be in tight control, and thruout the pregnancy too. Pls be under direct guidance of a good gynae and a diabetoligist as monitoring will be necessary.

What is the perfect age for a girl to go for sex, also if sex is done during her periods what will happen, any risk of pregnancy.

Diploma in Gastroenterology, Diploma in Dermatology, BHMS
Homeopath, Hyderabad
The time that a girl can have sex is often up to her. But legally in india. It should be after 18 years. However, at 18 your body hasn't fully developed yet. You're still going through puberty and even your brain is still developing. A lot of teenagers really want to have sex, but they're not fully aware of the risk factors. I don't just mean pregnancy and std prevention; I mean emotional preparation. Many regret having sex too early or with someone they don't fully care about. I know of one girl who went through severe depression after losing her virginity. I don't say this to scare you off from sex. Just be aware that sex results in various different physical and emotional consequences, both good and bad. And early sex, multiple sexual partners (polygamous) are the causes of cervical cancer according to study. And second question is. Sex during menstruation. Is not hygienic. And no risk of pregnancy. As during that period no ovulation occurs. Ovulatory period is 11th day to 18th day of menstrual cycle which is considered as danger period. As chances of pregnancy is more. Finally you can have sex. During periods. But not hygienic.

My friend has a problem of continuous white discharge. What should be the solution to this problem?

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
Vaginal discharge is a whitish liquid that is produced in the uterus and is discharged by way of vagina. It is a normal process and it generally begins in a girl life when she is due to attain puberty or prior to menstruation. It is the nature’s way of keeping the vagina healthy and lubricated. Women experience vaginal discharge all through their lives though it reduces after they reach the menopausal stage. Normal vaginal discharge helps to keep the vagina clean and healthy. It does not have a bad odour or you can say that it has no smell at all and you may see the traces of discharge on your under garment. It is normal for vaginal discharge to increase under certain conditions like- A few days before menstruation During pregnancy During ovulation Hormonal treatment Sexual excitement Emotional stress.So if the discharge i irritating her due to it burning effect,pungent odour or any other problem regarding this discharge then conult me.

Dear user. No one can find out whether a girl had sexual relationship prior to marriage simply because there is no scientific proof exists. Don't worry. Take care.

Foods to Avoid While Taking Homeopathic Medicines

BHMS
Homeopath, Delhi
Foods to Avoid While Taking Homeopathic Medicines

Homeopathic treatment is one of the most natural and effective modes of treatment for a number of diseases and disorders. However, there should be a restriction on certain kinds of food when you are under homeopathic medication. Homeopathic medicines are consumed orally, and the tiny globules get absorbed in the oral cavity, and thus it is recommended that you keep away from food substances with a strong smell and taste. If a minimum gap is not maintained between having food and taking of the medicines, effective results will not be provided.

It has been explained that if you do not intake any food material half an hour before and after taking homeopathic medicines, no harm is done on the effect of the medicine. There is a controversy regarding coffee and homeopathic medicines, but coffee is quite safe to have, but you must keep the timing in mind and maintain the half an hour gap. The same applies to onions, garlic, ginger and other strong-smelling food items. However, in the case of certain homeopathic medicines, coffee acts like an antidote. This is because there are medicines, which are prepared using coffee in crude and roasted forms. You should ask your homeopath about it when he gives you a certain homeopathic medicine.

As long as you are following the half an hour before and after rule, there are no such food restrictions when you are under homeopathic medication. However, in case of certain diseases where the homeopathic cure is used, the intake of several common food items increases the intensity of the disease. For this, you must take several dietary precautions until you start experiencing results from homeopathic medicines.

Here is a list of diseases along with the food items that should be avoided if you are having homeopathic medicines for treatment:

  1. Respiratory disorders: While you are undergoing a homeopathic treatment for respiratory disorders such as cough and cold, avoid cold drinks, ice cream or any chilled food item.
  2. Skin disorders: In case of skin disorders, you should avoid rich, spicy food or artificially flavored food of any kind. You should also abstain from non vegetarian food if you want homeopathic medicines to work effectively.
  3. Gastrointestinal disorders: Keep away from spicy and pungent food and also avoid fried, oily foods while taking homeopathic medicines for gastrointestinal problems. Alcohol should also be abstained from.
  4. Vitiligo: For effective homeopathic treatment for vitiligo, avoid eating unripe, sour fruits. Avoid anything sour such as curd or yoghurt. Also consume fewer amounts of fish and seafood.

Usually, there are no such food restrictions for homeopathic medicines as long as you maintain the half an hour rule, before and after the intake of a homeopathic medicine.

Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
What to Eat When Pregnant and Don't Feel Well
During pregnancy you may have morning sickness, diarrhea, or constipation. You may find it hard to keep foods down, or you may feel too sick to even eat at all. Here are some suggestions:

Morning sickness: eat crackers, cereal, or pretzels before getting out of bed; eat small, frequent meals throughout the day; avoid fatty, fried, spicy, and greasy foods.

Constipation: eat more fresh fruit and vegetables. Also, drink 6 to 8 glasses of water a day.

Diarrhea: eat more foods that contain pectin and gums (two types of dietary fiber) to help absorb excess water. Examples of these foods are applesauce, bananas, white rice, oatmeal, and refined wheat bread.

Heartburn: eat small, frequent meals throughout the day; try drinking milk before eating; and limit caffeinated foods and beverages, citric beverages, and spicy foods.
