I am a breast feeding mother. Which is the tablet good for getting period as well as not harmful?
Hello- It is not advisable to go for forced period within a year of breast feed as it will decrease the quantity of breast milk and the medicine will also pass out from mother's body into feeding baby which may cause serious health issues. If the baby is one year older thn you can use "Raja pravartani vati" 1 tab twice daily for 15 days to start menses.

2 lines means pregnant. Faint line means it's an early pregnancy. Wait for a week, if it's a normal pregnancy, the line will become dark immediately.

Menses can get delayed after the miscarriage for 15 days or so. You can wait for another week and get urine tested again if menses does not start by that time.

Lifestyle modification is the primary treatment. Lose weight and avoid all fatty food. Excercise daily. And keep trying for coception. Generally treatment for infertility not started by doctors before 1 year of marriage. So you keep trying and follow the advice.

If your periods are regular still now and got skipped this month then there is a suspicion that you might be pregnant please have it checked through home done spot test with ICAN and for confirmation undergo urine for HCG test. If you have irregular periods even before then this might be due to hormonal supplement which is effecting your cycle.

Why Eating Fish Is Essential for a Healthy Pregnancy?

Why Eating Fish Is Essential for a Healthy Pregnancy?

Fishes are depositories of the good nutrients that are essential for maintaining the optimal health of the human body. Broadly speaking, fishes have high protein and low-fat content, which helps to boost up the metabolism and immunity of the body. A fish meat in the diet is very often suggested by doctors for women during their pregnancy, even to the women who are vegetarians.

There are certain dishes which are low on mercurial content and high on minerals and beneficial acids, which are recommended to consume during pregnancy. These include fishes like Salmon, Anchovies, Herring, Sardines, Trout, Pollock, Catfish, Atlantic and Pacific Mackerel. As per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) pregnant women can safely eat up to 12 ounces (340 grams) of seafood in a given week. Here are certain reasons which make fish consumption essential for a pregnant woman.

  • The presence of omega-3 fatty acids - One of the main highlights of fish meat is Omega-3 fat or Omega-3 fatty acids. It is a form of unsaturated fatty acid that is commonly found in fish oils secreted by the meat of the fish. These acids, mainly help the baby to develop its brain and the eyesight faster and better. Additionally, it also helps in energy storage, oxygen transport, cell membrane function, and regulation of inflammation in the mother's body.
  • Low Fat Substitute - It is a known fact that fishes are rich sources of protein and vitamins like Vitamin C and D. They are usually low on all forms of fat, saturated fat and fatty acids. This helps to avoid fat accumulation in the fetus as well as in the mother's body.
  • Better development of the baby - It is a scientifically proven fact that, higher fish consumption by women during their pregnancy is associated with increased cognitive scores, and decreased the risk of autistic symptoms (a brain development disorder found in children).

Conclusively, fishes have always been a desirable food to consume during pregnancy by women. But, you should always be careful while fish consumption, due to pollutants like mercury and PCBs (Polychlorinated biphenyls, which is a form of a chemically reactive substance), which are harmful to the baby as well as the mother.

Benefits of Vitamin D Supplement During Pregnancy for Mother and the Baby

Benefits of Vitamin D Supplement During Pregnancy for Mother and the Baby

Vitamin D and pregnancy go hand in hand. Expecting mothers need to ensure they get the recommended amounts of vitamin D during pregnancy for the healthy development of the baby as well as their own well-being. 

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin obtained mostly from consuming fortified milk or juice, fish oils and dietary supplements. It also is produced in the skin by exposure to sunlight. Vitamin D, which is ingested or produced in the skin must undergo hydroxylation in the liver and kidney to promote absorption of calcium from the gut to enable normal bone mineralization and growth. Severe maternal vitamin D deficiency has been associated with congenital rickets and disordered skeletal homeostasis coupled with fractures in the newborn during pregnancy.  Vitamin D is necessary for the metabolism and absorption of phosphorus and calcium. Many studies are finding a connection between low serum vitamin D levels and an increased risk of certain types of autoimmune disease, cancers, insulin resistance, neurological disease and cardiovascular disease.

Latest studies have shown that vitamin D deficiency is common during pregnancy especially among women residing in northern latitudes, living in cold climates or wear sun and winter protective clothing and ethnic minorities, especially those with darker skin. As the vitamin D level of newborn is largely dependent on maternal vitamin D status, the infants of mothers with vitamin D deficiency are also at risk of vitamin D deficiency. Inadequate level of vitamin D can lead to abnormal bone growth, fractures, or rickets in newborns. Deficiency of vitamin D leads to a higher risk of pregnancy complications like gestational diabetes, premature birth and low birth weight.

The symptoms of a vitamin D deficiency include aching muscles, bone pain, and softened bones leading to fractures. Fish liver oil, fatty fish, and eggs are excellent food source for Vitamin D. It is difficult to get sufficient vitamin D from food, which makes it necessary to have vitamin D supplements. Since the skin uses the sun's rays to produce vitamin D, limited sun exposure is recommended. Exposure to the sun's ultraviolet rays intensifies the pigment changes causing skin darkening in pregnant women. Thus, most doctors endorse that pregnant women protect themselves from the sun and get their vitamin D from supplements. The average prenatal vitamin contains 400 IU of vitamin D, which makes it imperative that additional supplements should be taken. The significant compounds for human development are D2 and D3. The best way to really ensure adequate vitamin D is through simple supplementation. Ergocalciferol is the vegetarian form of vitamin D, whereas cholecalciferol is the animal-sourced form, derived from fish liver oil or lanolin from sheep.

I have missed my periods and I am 5 days overdue. I took a HPT on the morning of day 4. It came out negative. I have never missed my periods (I am 33 years old). I am getting period like cramps through the day. It feels like they will start but nothing happens. I am not sure if I should worry (can it be something besides pregnancy?) since the cramps do not seem to be stopping. Or was it too early to do a HPT.

It was not too early but sometimes hpt works if done a little late. Repeat it again in two days. If it still turns out to be negative then there seems to be little possibility of conception. In that case wait for one more cycle. If your periods continue to be irregular for more than two cycles you should be visiting a doctor. For now I do not see a cause for concern. Periods can get delayed due to various factors like lack of sleep, overwork, stress, sudden climate changes etc.

If your cycle has been 35 - 40 days since your menarchae, then its ok. But since you are saying that the flow has reduced, that means there might be some problem. Also have you gained weight? get a scanning done and check your thyroid profile. That will help you to identify the problem.

If you are going for intercourse with penetration, the hymen will rupture. Using lubricated condoms is preferable.
