Ur next period is supposed on 4 August , it may vary according to ur regularity of cycle. Wait for now. Don't do anything now. If cycle doesn't comes on regular time, then do UPT available in medical shop after 4 to 5 days elapsed. Take necessary precaution each time. I pill is not the solution for each time.

Right ovary is increased in size. This increase could be due to number of diseases. I advise you to do laparoscopic test to find out the cause for increase in size.

Revealed - How Thyroid Issues Affect Your Weight

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Revealed - How Thyroid Issues Affect Your Weight
How Thyroid issues affect your weight - When I talk with women suffering with unexpected weight gain, often one of the first questions I am asked is "Is it my thyroid?"

Sometimes, my answer is "Yes" - after all, our thyroid hormones play a huge role in regulating our metabolism and how we use nutrients.

And research shows that even small changes to the thyroid function can cause weight gain. In fact, many women who have been told their thyroid test results are "normal" may still have a reduced thyroid function (subclinical hypothyroidism) that's enough to cause weight gain and other bothersome symptoms.

At the clinic, I work with women suffering from a wide range of thyroid issues from those just starting to suspect they have a thyroid problem to those already taking medication. And I tell each and every one of them how they can benefit from natural thyroid support and a holistic approach that considers thyroid function as part of overall hormonal balance.

The thyroid and unexpected weight gain: an early signal - Unexpected weight gain and difficulty losing weight may be one of the first noticeable signals that you're struggling with hypothyroidism (a sluggish thyroid) or subclinical hypothyroidism. Many women tell me about their frustration with gaining five pounds every year and not being able to figure out why!

Reduced thyroid function may be the result of the thyroid's impaired ability to produce hormones, or the body may have difficulty using the thyroid hormones. Either way, problems with your thyroid hormones may cause the rate at which you use nutrients (your metabolic rate) to slow down.

We are especially prone to thyroid issues and weight gain as women because the thyroid is linked to other systems that affect weight including the proper functioning of our neurotransmitters, reproductive hormones, and adrenal glands.

Thyroid issues affect women of all ages - While we see women of all ages with thyroid issues, there are times in your life when your hormones fluctuate more and when the development of thyroid issues may be even more likely.

If you have any questions related to thyroid, ask me by clicking on 'Consult'.

Beta hcg levels vary according to the gestational age. In a non-pregnant woman, they are less than 10 miu/ml. They are typically about 100 miu/ml 14 days after ovulation in a healthy singleton pregnancy. They should double every 48- 72 hours in a healthy pregnancy. The levels are higher in a multiple pregnancy; this hormone gives the positive result on both urine and blood based tests. An hcg level of less than 5 miu/ml like it is 0.10 miu/ml in your case generally indicates you are not pregnant but this depends on the day post ovulation when the test is done.

It can never be safe totally. Though people may be of high profile there is every chance that you may get sexually transmitted diseases like hiv, herpes from them.

90% of the Food You Eat Is Wrecking Your Digestive System

90% of the Food You Eat Is Wrecking Your Digestive System

The way a human body works is tricky; to enable proper digestion and to feel fit throughout the day it is best to have a balanced diet. Things that you consider nutritious could be gnawing at your digestive tract. A person could be suffering from acid reflux, continual stretches of diarrhea or constipation, gastroesophageal reflux or an irritable bowel syndrome; kinds of food being consumed should be reviewed and altered as a basic remedy to these health problems.

  1. Stay away from acidic fruits: A fruit that is acidic in nature will have acidic effects on the digestive system. Acidic fruits should, therefore never be consumed in large amounts. Acid of any kind has a corrosive effect on our internal organs and hence should not be taken on an empty or an upset stomach. Lemons, oranges, tomatoes and other citrus fruits fall under this category of food.
  2.  The myth about milk: Milk contains lactose that is hard to digest. People with lactose intolerance face the results right after consuming milk or other dairy products. Aged people face more difficulties in digesting milk. Dairy products when eaten in excess can result in gas, bloating or diarrhea. It is time you stopped believing in the myth milk is anything, but bad for digestive health.
  3. Processed wheat is not healthy at all: Bread is the easiest way of making a meal for yourself. However, its effects on your digestive system and your overall health are in no way good. Processed wheat can constipate you as it lacks in fiber. It contains added preservatives that can be harsh on your stomach.
  4. Ignore that soft corner for fries: While your stomach needs to be provided with food from time to time it also needs to be emptied. Fried food prevents emptying of the stomach. They tend to remain in the digestive system for long making you feel bloated and uneasy.
  5. Red meat and unhealthy fats will ruin digestion: Most of us like eating red meat and other kinds of fat such as butter, ghee, cheese and ice- creams. These fats are hard to digest and they result in recurrent stomach contractions. Stomach contractions can further lead to two extremes; you can be constipated for a few days or might have diarrhea.

Menses delayed by a week is ok. But if you are suspecting pregnancy, do a urine pregnancy test after 1-2 days. Only if that's negative, you should take a medicine for delayed menses. Till then, relax and eat well. All the best.

Diet for Healthy Pregnancy

MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Noida
Diet for Healthy Pregnancy

To support the healthy growth of their baby, pregnant or breastfeeding women need to consume around 400 additional calories per day in order to meet their own and baby's energy needs.

During pregnancy or while breastfeeding your baby, it is important to eat a variety of healthy foods. The essential nutrients listed below are needed to help you and your baby's health. They're found in fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, nuts, beans, dairy products, and lean meats.

Calcium

Calcium helps build strong bones and teeth and plays an important role in the healthy functioning of the circulatory, muscular, and nervous systems. Pregnant and breastfeeding women should get 1,000 mg of calcium a day. Healthy sources of calcium include low-fat dairy products, spinach, calcium-fortified orange juice and cereals.

Carbohydrates

Eating carbohydrates helps provide energy to support the growth and development of a baby both during pregnancy and breastfeeding. The best sources of carbohydrates are whole grains, fruits, and vegetables, which also are good sources of fiber.

Fiber

Fiber is a nutrient that can help patients with constipation commonly associated with pregnancy. Whole grains (like whole-wheat bread, whole-grain cereals, and brown rice) and fruits, vegetables, and legumes (beans, split peas, and lentils) are rich sources of fiber.

Folic acid

Folic acid helps the healthy development of a baby's brain and spinal cord. It's also needed to make red blood cells and white blood cells. Women who get 400 micrograms (0.4 milligrams) of folic acid daily prior to conception and during early pregnancy can reduce the risk that their baby will be born with a neural tube defect. Good sources of folic acid include fortified cereals, leafy green vegetables, beans, nuts and citrus fruits,

Healthy Fats

Healthy fats (unsaturated fats) are used to fuel a baby's growth and development. They are especially important for the development of the brain and nervous system. Healthy fats are found in olive oil, peanut oil, canola oil, avocados, and salmon. While fat is necessary for any healthy diet, it's important to limit fat intake to 30% or less of your daily calorie intake.

Iodine

Iodine helps the body's thyroid gland make hormones that help with growth and brain development. Not getting enough iodine during pregnancy can put a baby at risk for thyroid problems, cognitive delays, and even mental retardation. It is recommended that pregnant or lactating women use iodized salt in their cooking and eat foods high in iodine, like seafood and dairy products.

Iron

Eating a diet rich in iron and taking a daily iron supplement while pregnant or breastfeeding helps prevent iron-deficiency anemia. Women who don't get enough iron may feel exhausted and are highly prone to infections. Good dietary sources of iron include lean meats, fortified cereals, leafy green vegetables and legumes like beans, split peas, and lentils.

Protein

Protein helps build a baby's muscles, bones, and other tissues, especially in the second and third trimesters of pregnancy. The recommended protein intake during the second half of pregnancy and while breastfeeding is 71 grams daily. Healthy sources of protein include lean meat, peanut butter, eggs, poultry, fish, beans,and tofu.

Vitamin A

Vitamin A helps develop a baby's heart, eyes, and immune system. Prenatal vitamins should not contain more than 1,500 micrograms (5,000 IU) of vitamin A and pregnant women should not take vitamin A supplements. Both too little and too much vitamin A can harm a developing fetus. Good sources of vitamin A include milk, dark leafy greens, orange fruits, and vegetables like carrots and sweet potatoes.

Vitamin B6

Vitamin B6 helps form a baby's red blood cells; breaking down protein, fat, and carbohydrates; and is needed for normal brain development and function. Rich sources of vitamin B6 include poultry, fortified cereals, fish, whole grains, and bananas.

Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12 plays an important role in the formation of a baby's red blood cells, as well as brain development and function. Vitamin B12 is only found in animal products like meat and eggs, so it's important to speak to the Gynae about taking a B12 supplement during your pregnancy and while breastfeeding as well if you're a vegetarian. Rich sources of vitamin B12 include lean meats, poultry, and fish, and low-fat milk.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C plays an important role in tissue growth and repair, and in bone and tooth development. Vitamin C also helps the body absorb iron. Good sources of vitamin C include citrus fruits, fortified fruit juices, broccoli, and tomatoes.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is helpful in the body's absorption of calcium for building healthy bones and teeth. Good sources of vitamin D include fortified low-fat or fat-free milk, egg yolks, fortified orange juice and salmon.

To support the healthy growth of their baby, pregnant or breastfeeding women need to consume around 400 additional calories per day in order to meet their own and baby's energy needs.

During pregnancy or while breastfeeding your baby, it is important to eat a variety of healthy foods. The essential nutrients listed below are needed to help you and your baby's health. They're found in fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, nuts, beans, dairy products, and lean meats.
