That is sufficient enough interval between pregnancy as when the next child will be born it will be 3 years gap. If you r breastfeeding the baby, you need to stop as you r planning for the next one.

Pcos is not a disease like typhoid, but its a lifestyle disease, and it is possible to treat it. From what you have sugegsted, if you have done ovulation studies, the doctor will know whether you have ovulated or not. By ovulation I mean whether the ovum has come out of the ovary, through rupture of the dominant follicle. This is seen on sonography as a ruptured follicle with free fluid. So that itself will show ovulation. In patients with pcos the ovulation day varies, depending on what medicines you are given, so it is different for each month. Generally if you are ovulating each month on medicines, it also means you will conceive, just give yourself time and keep treatment regular.

Pcod's origin is mainly due to harmonal imbalance. Its mostly associated to thyroid also in majority cases. The ultimate outward expression is change in wt, hair pattren, menstrual irregularities, etc. Here in wt gain, the fat deposition depends on body tendency, physiology. It varies from person to person. But mostly, the accumulating parts are over tummy, hips around, breast. So, here, to reduce over spcfc parts, its always good to follow particular exercises, under instructor.

The oils are not scientific, if I were your treating doctor I suggest one tablet of tetrafol plus after meal twice daily for two months and one tablet tentex forte daily at night with a cup of milk for 4 weeks. There are some natural lifestyle measures which help to improve blood flow to penis and overall sexual performance. - the most important factor is healthy heart. Blood is pumped in to body by heart. So regular exercise and avoidance of fatty fast food are important measures to prevent heart disease. Regular walking, swimming or running overall improves blood flow to whole body circulation including penis and keep the mind fresh. - good healthy food is also an important aspect. Bananas, garlic, dry fruits (they contains vitamins), eggs, cow milk, cow butter are good food which may help in erectile dysfunction. - avoid smoking and alcohol. Low amount of alcohol can help in increasing blood flow but more amount can cause opposite effects. So better to avoid the same.

My girlfriend and I (18 years old) were fooling around sexually and I took my cloths off and she was in her underwear. My penis rubbed against her vagina several times but I did not ejaculate or penetrate. Plus I might have touched my penis while it was wet before pleasuring her vagina. We are scared that she might become pregnant and we can't buy control pills. It's been 2 days since that happened and she's not showing any signs.

Dear user. If your girl friend had her underwear ON, and you did not even enter your penis inside her vagina, there is no chance of pregnancy. Semen or pre-cum never travels through clothes. Don't panic. Take care.

Hi She's got much pain during sex, intercourse that's pain out of control And more thing is that she's suffering from white discharge from vagina. So can you tell me please what is the cause of these. Is it possible in sex or other things. And what is treatment of these.

Having minimal white discharge is normal during the cycle. But if it causes pain during sex, if it associated with itching and is foul smelling these are signs of infection. It's better to get tested if she is having any infection and manage accordingly.

For the sake of pregnancy, best period for intercourse is from 10th to 20th day of normal 30 days cycle. To set your body rhythm right it should have adequate sleep and timely meals. Your weight should be as close to the ideal for age and height, as possible. Males should avoid smoking, alcohol and tight pants. Logically the best position would be with man on top so sperm entry is aided by gravity. Take a 2 hour nap before you go for a wash.

Why Falling in Love is Good For Your Health?

Why Falling in Love is Good For Your Health?

Your health is affected by a number of physical, mental and emotional conditions. Falling in love is one of these factors. Being in love with someone does not only put a smile on your face, it can also boost your immunity and lower stress levels. Love can make you feel stronger both mentally and physically. Here are a few reasons why love is beneficial to your health.

  1. You may have a longer life: Love helps fight stress and hence helps reduce the harmful effects of stress. Stress is a direct trigger for many fatal conditions such as heart attack and strokes and thus, being in love reduces your risk of such diseases. Studies have also shown that when in love, a person takes more care of themselves and hence has a lower risk of having an accident, violence etc. thus, being in love can give you a longer lifespan and can reduce chances of an early death.
  2. You may have a lower risk of lifestyle diseases: Along with boosting your immunity love can also improve your lifestyle. Instead of microwaving a TV dinner, a person in love is likely to eat a healthier meal with their partner and be more conscious of their diet. Being in love also makes you want to look good thus, encourages exercising. By following a healthy diet and exercising regularly, you can reduce your chances of suffering from lifestyle diseases such as diabetes and obesity. Living with a person you love can also lower your alcohol and nicotine consumption and hence protect you from their ill effects.
  3. It protects you from depression: Companionship and love are good for a person’s mental health. Love can help stabilise emotions and keep you from depression. By living with someone a person does not have the chance to withdraw into themselves and can always rely on having someone to talk to. By sharing your thoughts and emotions with another person, difficult situations can become easier to handle and hence cause less stress and depression.
  4. It can help you look younger: As mentioned earlier, being in love can make you take better care of yourself. It is often said that a person in love ’glows’. In a nutshell, being in love makes you happy and this releases happy hormones that aid in the removal of toxins and prevent premature ageing. When you’re in love, you may also notice your hair looking healthier and shinier. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.

How Is Honey Beneficial For You?

How Is Honey Beneficial For You?

Traditionally, the use of honey stretches back to time immemorial. It is still considered one of the most precious gifts of nature to mankind. Modern research also suggests that honey has unique medicinal and nutritional properties. Honey should be incorporated in your daily diet as it is one food which is naturally beneficial for your overall health and does have any side effects.

Following are the traditional uses of honey, according to ayurveda:

1. Prevents anemia: Honey contains high amounts of iron, manganese and copper which are very essential for building hemoglobin. According to ancient texts, honey is a traditional cure as well as prevention for anemia as it helps in maintaining the optimum level of red blood corpuscles and hemoglobin.

2. Promotes eye health: Honey has been used to treat various eye diseases since ancient times. It is known to improve vision with daily application. It is an effective cure against diseases like conjunctivitis, trachoma or even something as minor as eye itching. It is also beneficial to treat glaucoma in the early stages.

3. Skin care: Ancient texts on ayurveda mention that external application of honey is effective in curing sores or other wounds. It works like an antiseptic and helps to soothe pain and hastens the healing process. It is also used to treat skin burns or carbuncles.

4. Cure for coughs: Honey is extremely useful in treating coughs. It works as a demulcent which aids in soothing the swollen mucous membrane present on the upper respiratory tract. It relieves you from irritating coughs and associated symptoms like frequent spurts of cough while talking and difficulty in swallowing. It is a chief ingredient in ayurvedic cough syrups for the same reason. You can also try honey gargles to relieve pain from throat inflammation.

Hello doc m 8 month pregnant having 70 kg weight is this normal in this stage nd what if my weight increase till deli...
Many women during their pregnancy will always be asked how much weight they have gained. Moderate weight gain during pregnancy is normal as your baby’s growth and development will depend on it. The extra kilograms will eventually be lost after delivery to reach your pre-pregnancy weight after some time. You as a pregnant woman can gain an average of 12 kg (8-16 kg) to account for the baby’s weight and other tissues and fluids accompanying pregnancy. You should neither worry about that nor lower your caloric intake unless there is pre-pregnancy obesity or a high weight gain. Here’s where the weight gain goes Baby: 2 – 3.4 kg Placenta: 0.5 kg Amniotic fluid: 4.0 – 5.9 kg Larger uterus: 0.5 – 1.1 kg Larger breasts: 0.5 – 1.4kg Increased blood volume: 1.0 – 1.8 kg Increased fat stores: 1.0 – 3.6 kg. The pattern of you to gain weight is as follows: In the first trimester, you do not need to gain much weight, only about 0-2 kg In the second and third trimester, steady weight gain is important for baby’s growth and development, which can be about 1–2 kg/month As a result it’s preferred that your weight gain doesn’t exceed these limits as it would lead to several complications in pregnancy and delivery. Some of them could be high blood pressure, gestational diabetes, fatigue, backache, delivery complications due to increased fetus weight and less milk secretion due to the high storage of fat tissues around the milk glands. Another point pregnant women should not forget is that when they gain excess weight, they will find it difficult to get back to their pre-pregnancy weight. And also you have to calculate your weight according to your height and age.

Hye. Thankyou for the query. You must always have faith in your doctor. Also it is very important to ask your doctor regarding the medication you are taking and why it is given. It is your right and responsibility to know what is the problem and what is the treatment. You have not mentioned what problem you are having with regards to your infertility. But as for medications prescribed vito dha is a folic acid supplement and EVECARE is to improve your menstrual irregularities and help fertility. Always be clear with your doctor. Don't be unaware of your own body or health or the medication you are putting into your body.

Very early pregnancy may show up negative with the urine pregnancy kit. To be sure, either repeat a urine test one week later with first morning voided urine or do a blood test, serum beta hcg. If either are negative, please consult a gynaecologist to find out the cause of missed periods.
