Hello We had unprotected sex for several times after my last period was over (last period on 31 th December. And expecting the next period on 29 th January but it occurred on 26 th January with pink spotting and on the next day some deep spotting, on the third day it became heavier (have to use 2 pads) but not as my regular period. Before spotting I had no any symptoms but the lower back pain on and off. I had cramps and pains all over my lower parts when I get my regular periods but this time I am feeling something different, that only my lower back and lower abdomen is paining very badly. So I am confused, is it my regular period or implantation bleeding or anything else? Please help me out.
I want to know what can be the best protein source for vegetarians. I am suffering from pcod and thyroid. Thank you.
How to prepare for an appendectomy
Appendectomy is the medical term for the surgery that is performed to remove the inflamed appendix (a condition that is known as appendicitis). This surgical treatment is mostly performed on an emergency basis.
But before you move on to know how to prepare for the surgery, it's important why it is important to get a surgery for appendicitis done?
What exactly is appendicitis?
Appendicitis is a medical condition in which the appendix (that is the worm-shaped projection which arises out of the beginning of the colon) gets inflamed.
The major cause of appendicitis is that the tissues of the appendix become infected with bacterial action that results in the formation of pus in the lumen (opening) of the appendix. Factors that can trigger bacterial infection are a hard stool, attack by a foreign body, and accumulation of thick mucus in the appendix tissues among others.
Appendicitis results in aching and acute pain in the abdominal region of the affected person. In many people, it is accompanied by complications like vomiting, nausea, fever, loss of appetite, constipation, abdominal swelling etc. In more severe cases, it is accompanied by diarrhoea.
Appendicitis usually requires an emergency surgery. However, there are some things you need to do before going for the surgery.
Preparations to undertake before surgery
In most cases, appendectomy is an emergency surgery so there are hardly any preparations that a patient can make. The most common preparatory measure that your surgeon may prescribe includes not eating anything up till a few hours before the surgery. Apart from that, certain medications may be prescribed to eliminate or at best reduce the symptoms of nausea and vomiting. There are no other preparations as such that you can undertake before appendectomy.
The recovery time is subjective as it depends on the type of procedure used for the surgery, the type of anaesthesia and the various complications associated with your condition. In general cases, the patients can recover within 12 hours of the surgery. However, it takes approximately 4-6 weeks for a person to resume a normal lifestyle after an appendectomy.
I have been diagnosed with pcod one year back (Feb 2017), I visited gyno and she suggested me to reduce stress and do some physical activities And I tried to follow the instructions by playing sports. Due to pcod I gained around 8-9 kgs very quickly and I am unable to reduce my weight for more than 1-2 kgs. I did my thyroid test n hemoglobin level test and everything was normal. Few months back I got my periods without any tablets but from Nov 2017 my periods started to skip again. During Nov-dec I was eating mostly at restaurants. And from Feb I have been trying to follow a health diet and still I didn't have my periods. Please let me know if their is anything to be done to reverse the pcod permanently.
Healthy Penis Friend: Probiotics
Ah, having a healthy penis is a wonderful thing for a man! When the penis looks good and feels good, a guy feels great all over, with an extra spring in his step and a definite gleam in his eye. Taking necessary steps to ensure good penis health is well worth it. In addition to paying attention to penis hygiene, checking for signs of problems, etc., guys might consider another option which can help make for a healthy penis: taking probiotics.
Most people know about antibiotics, but what are probiotics? They are microorganisms found in many food products and can provide health benefits of various kinds. Although the term "probiotics" is relatively new, the microorganisms themselves were more-or-less discovered back in the early 1900s by Elie Metchnikoff. This Nobel Prize-winner didn't identify the microorganisms themselves, but he did make note of how peasants in Bulgaria who ate a lot of yogurt tended to live longer than other people.
While the scientific community disagrees on exactly how beneficial these microbes are - rigorous scientific studies need to be conducted to provide a greater standard of evidence - there is general agreement that they can help boost a person's health in a number of ways. And several of those ways can be of aid in a man's search for a healthy penis.
Because probiotics are consumed and go to work in the gut, the most likely benefits are gastrointestinal. This can have a side benefit in terms of a healthy penis, as a healthy tummy makes a man more likely to feel like having sex, and more sex keeps the penis in better health.
But more directly, some studies indicate probiotics can help improve skin health, including the skin of the penis. Probiotics are thought to help fight inflammation. Skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis, both of which can attack the penis, have a basis in inflammation.
Another healthy penis benefit: Probiotics help keep cortisol levels down. Cortisol is a stress hormone, and when cortisol is high, testosterone levels tend to be low. So dampening cortisol should help boost testosterone. In turn, testosterone is associated with sex drive; in general, the more testosterone a man has, the more "in the mood" he is likely to feel. (Some people believe that testosterone also increases the size of testicles, but there is little research to support this claim.)
Cardiac function may also benefit from probiotics, and that's good news for the penis. Animal studies suggest that probiotics may help keep some plaque from arteries, which boosts the flow of oxygen-rich blood around the body. They also indicate probiotics may play a role in regulating cholesterol, which keeps the heart healthier. All of this means the penis is in a better position to receive and accommodate greater blood flow, which it can use during the erectile process.
And there may be other benefits, as well. For example, some doctors believe that probiotics can lower anxiety and improve moods, both of which make a man feel more prepped and ready for sex. And there is a possibility that probiotics can help boost immune function, keeping a man in overall better health, which subsequently betters his penis health as well.
So how does a guy get probiotics? There are many foods that are good sources, such as yogurt, fermented cheese, lassi, sauerkraut, dark chocolate, and pickles. There also are probiotic supplements. But before delving in, it pays to consult with a doctor to discuss any dietary changes.
There's much more that has to be learned about probiotics and a healthy penis, so in the meantime, regularly use a first rate penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). Find a crème with both L-arginine and L-carnitine. The first ingredient helps keep penile blood vessels open for increased blood flow, while the second helps maintain penis sensation that can be lost due to peripheral nerve damage.
