Hi, The above said kit is effective only when taken before 6 weeks of pregnancy. With 3 months gestation period, you will have to undergo MTP for which you need to consult a good obstetrician and gynaecologist at the earliest.

If you did not vomit after taking unwanted 72 and used condoms this time it should be okay. However I must warn you that unwanted 72 is not very effective if you have regular sex. You should opt for some regular form of contraception then.

Sir. I am studying in 4th year I had lots of sex feelings during my 2nd year be. So I need not wanted to involve sex with guy and loose my virginity instead I utilized a dildo and almost 1 year I used it. Later on I got controlled and sex feelings gradually decreased. But now I am engaged with a guy next year we are marrying we had sex. But at the sex I didn't get bleeding and it was easy intercourse for him. So he says I am not virgin. I do not know how to prove it? masturbation made my hymen break and its wide now. Can I involve in any tests and prove him. please help me. Or else he will make myself kill. . More over I can not live without. Please explain me how can I convince him and explain about it.

See. Always people how have intercourse for the first time will not bleed. It's mutual understanding. If you comfortable with your partner then you won't bleed when you have first time intercourse. Couples who are new to each other with hesitation will have bleeding in there first intercourse. And rest about your boyfriend. If he don't have faith on you then continuing relationship with him is no use. If you convince him also if it's there in his mind that you are not virgin then your rest life will go to he'll. Once you break this relationship. It's better to die once than daily dieing after marriage. Sorry I spoke about your personal. But it's true to explain you. What mistake you going to do like.

My Sister (35years) has continuous periods from past two months, she got the scan done and everything is fine. They gave her tablets for hormonal changes. Till she took tablets it was fine but bleeding stated again when she stopped the tablets. Is it because of strain because she has to travel to different places in india due to the nature of her work.

Hi. Has she gone for hormonal assay? Can you share the reports? If everything is normal, may be due to general weakness or excessive exertion, this is happening. Ask her to take homoeopathic medicines - Five Phos./ thrice daily and Alfaalfa Tonic (with ginseng)/ thrice daily - both for 1 month. Tell her to eat iron-rich foods: Red meat Pork Poultry Seafood Beans Dark green leafy vegetables, such as spinach Dried fruit, such as raisins and apricots Iron-fortified cereals, breads and pastas Peas You can enhance your body's absorption of iron by drinking citrus juice or eating other foods rich in vitamin C at the same time that you eat high-iron foods. Vitamin C in citrus juices, like orange juice, helps your body to better absorb dietary iron. Vitamin C is also found in: Broccoli Grapefruit Kiwi Leafy greens Melons Oranges Peppers Strawberries Tangerines Tomatoes Apart from the diet correction, Exercising is an important part of our life! We know but still ignore it. But it keeps you active, keeps well-toned muscles, increases the body's circulation, releases stress/ stops release of stress-hormone from the body! So, when we can maintain our health by slightly altering diet and exercising, why would we need medication then? Let her implement this in her life and give her status feedback to me soon..Bye!

Missing a regular period is the first sign of pregnancy. If she has missed her scheduled period just recently, you should get a urine pregnancy test done without delay. If she tests positive it is most likely that she is pregnant. You need to consult a gynecologist to exactly to decide the duration of pregnancy and the method of termination if desired by both of you. If it tests negative you may wait for another few days for periods to begin or consult a gynecologist.

No. There are no chances of you getting pregnant if the intercourse is done during periods. In fact even after menses practically negligible chance for about 4-6 days. Depending upon your menstrual cycle.

Headache During Pregnancy

BHMS
Homeopath, Delhi
Headache During Pregnancy
Headache during pregnancy is one of the common discomfort.It may occur at any time during pregnancy,but they tend to be most common during first and third trimesters.
Causes
An increase in headache during first trimester is believed to be caused by the surge of hormones along with the increase in blood volume circulating throughout body.
Other potential culprits include lack of sleep or general fatigue, sinus congestion, allergies, eyestrain, stress, depression,poor posture,hunger, and dehydration.

If you have headaches in your first trimester, you'll probably find that they diminish or even disappear during the second trimester, when the flood of hormones stabilizes.
Women who have regular migraine headaches may discover that they experience fewer migraines during pregnancy ; however,some women may encounter the same number or even more migraine headaches.Experts estimate that about 1 in 5 women has a migraine headache at some time in her life, and up to 16 percent of those women get migraines for the first time when they're pregnant (most often in the first trimester).
Migraine headaches cause moderate to severe throbbing pain, typically on one side of the head. They last from four to 72 hours (if untreated) and are aggravated by physical activity. They can also be accompanied by other symptoms, such as nausea, vomiting, or sensitivity to light and noise.

Headache during the third trimester tend to be related more to poor posture and tension from carrying weight.Headaches during the the third trimester may also be caused by pre-eclampsia with high blood pressure during pregnancy.

General Management
1.Avoid stress
2.For some migraine sufferers, a cold shower brings some fast – if temporary – relief. If you can't take a shower, splash some cool water on your face. A warm shower or bath can be soothing for tension headaches.
3.Practise good posture
4.Regular exercise can reduce the frequency and severity of migraines and reduce the stress that can cause tension headaches.
5.Eat balanced diet: Maintain your blood sugar by eating smaller,more frequent meals.
6.Get a massage:Massaging shoulders and neck is an effective way to relieve pain.
7.Rest in a dark room and practise deep breathing.
8.Avoid common triggers of migraine including:
*Chocolate
*Alcohol
*Old cheese
*Preserved meat
*Sour cream
*Smoked fish

Unbearable headache during pregnancy may be caused by some serious underlying pathology especially imminent eclampsia and need guidance.
Consult your doctor if you face such problem.

Why It Is Important To Quit Cigarettes Using Smokeless Tobacco?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Ahmedabad
Why It Is Important To Quit Cigarettes Using Smokeless Tobacco?

The use of any tobacco product has both immediate and long-term effects on your health and overall well-being. Smokeless tobacco stains and wears down your teeth, causes your gums to recede (peel back) and produces mouth sores. Bad breath is also a common problem. Over time, the use of smokeless tobacco can cause mouth cancer. Nicotine from smokeless tobacco also raises blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and can increase your risk of having heart attack. List your own reasons for wanting to quit using smokeless tobacco. In addition to the effects of smokeless tobacco on your health, you may be concerned about saving money or setting a good example for family members and friends. Write down your reasons for wanting to quit. Then keep your list in places where you can see it often. Visit nearby psychiatrist for de-addiction if required.

Hi I am 31 years female. I have been married since 9 years n I have also a son of 8 years old. I had been a victim of depression 4 years back after my father's death. That time I decided not to think about another child because I was not even able to take care of my son at that time. I used to have anxiety attacks at that time. But after that with the passage of time it got cured. I started to plan for my next issue 1 and half years back coz my husband wants another baby. My problem is that I could not decide whether I should go for this or not. Agr m one side sochti hu to I want another child on the other hand my mind starts to think ki mra beta ab bda ho gya hai n age difference kafi rhega n oll. I don't know what I exactly want.

Diet During Ramadan!

M.Sc Dietetics and Food Service Management, B.Sc. - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Hubli-Dharwad
Diet During Ramadan!

Diet during ramadan:

Suhoor (early morning meal before fast):
1. Recommend oats/barley/quinoa/ muesli/ whole wheat chapati which will give energy throughout the day as they are complex carbs
2. Include some good quality protien too along with carbs like eggs/ tofu/ paneer/ nuts etc
3. Can sprinkle chia seeds, flaxseeds over oats/muesli to get good fats

Iftaar (breaking fast):

  1. Break fast with water and 3-4 pc's of dates which gives instant energy followed by a bowl of fruit or vegetable soup (can add some pc's of chicken or lentils) to gradually start digestive system to work.
  2. Then it should be followed by dinner which should be ideally after 1-2 hr of breaking fast. Dinner should be balanced with a blend of complex carbs, good protien and healthy fats. 
  3. Preferred to avoid refined oily fried foods as they can hamper digestion and cause acidity. 
  4. Diet should be rich in fibre as constipation is a common problem during this time.
  5. Should drink lots of water throughout the day.
