Hi, the chances of getting pregnant are high if you have regular menstrual cycle of 28 or 30 days. Get pregnancy test done after 1 week of expected menstrual date.

3 Healthy Diet Ideas That Might Have Adverse Effect On You

3 Healthy Diet Ideas That Might Have Adverse Effect On You

With the vast amount of available information, ranging from age-old wisdom to health magazines and health sites, most people are prone to misinformation when it comes to what to eat and what to avoid.
From drinking copious amounts of water to eating a light lunch, it is the time that these commonly known health tips are debunked.
These 3 habits that may seem healthy on the surface but are actually harming you!
1) Drinking large amounts of water
It is advisable to drink a healthy dose of water each day, but you should drink water only when you feel thirsty and not otherwise. If you drink water beyond your level of thirst, it can lead to excess water intake. This excessive intake can be the cause of conditions like obesity, skin and digestive problems among other health conditions. An average person consumes 8 glasses of water each day. But you are advised to drink that much, only if you are thirsty enough. It is also recommended not to drink cold water or ice-cold drinks.
2) Eating uncooked foods
It is essential to preserve the nutrients of the ingredients you eat, but it is equally important to make them digestible. Cooking involves subjecting the ingredients to heat, which helps to remove and kill certain impurities and bacteria in them. Cooked foods are easily broken down, and hence, digested with ease. Some vegetables and foods are even more beneficial when lightly cooked. Vegetables like Brussel sprouts, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, spinach, and kale should not be consumed raw.
3) Eating a light lunch
The ideology behind eating a light lunch may be to keep your weight in check and to stay healthy, but if the food you're having is not nutritious, it can still cause you to gain weight. Some food joints even offer a lunch menu of light proportions while the dinner menu may be packed with heavy amounts of food. This is wrong. It is advisable that people have larger proportions of food in their lunch while dinner should be meager as your digestion slows down as the day progresses. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dietitian/Nutritionist.

I have very bad stomach pain and no periods from 4 month, I have used pregnancy test shows negative. What should I do?
Common causes of irregular periods: eating disorders, like anorexia and bulimia, excessive weight gain or weight loss; extreme thinness and obesity both cause your menstrual cycle to become irregular or even to disappear. Stress or emotional problems, hormonal problems, for example, when the thyroid malfunctions, travel, over-exercising: if you're an athlete and train very hard, you may stop menstruating because your body wants to survive and save energy and menstruation requires energy, problems with the pelvic organs (such as polycystic ovarian syndrome, for example) drugs like birth-control pills can affect the frequency and / or intensity of menstruation.

Dear lybrate-user. Cyst of 1.5 cm is alright. Most of them resolve without any medical intervention in course of couple of months. If she doesn't have any symptoms you cab simply Repeat and scan after 2 months and look for the size. If it is increasing in size, consider taking medications to decrease the cyst.

Self Medication - Why You Must Stop Doing It?

Self Medication - Why You Must Stop Doing It?

Have you ever approached a pharmacist to buy antibiotics without a prescription? The answer would most probably be a ‘Yes’. And, most of us are not surprised, because self-medication has become a veritable epidemic, but the fact that it can be dangerous is somehow Not catching up.

Self-medication is when a person decides to treat themselves without consulting a doctor. This is not only dangerous but can also cause serious problems and in some cases worsen the situation. Today over 7,000 drugs and drug combinations are available in the world and many of these have been released for general use and are sold directly as over- the-counter or OTC drugs. On the other hand, medicines that are available only with a prescription are called prescription medicines.

Most OTC drugs usually fall under the category of pain relievers, cough remedies, anti-allergies, laxatives, vitamins, tonics, antacids etc. The term “responsible self-medication” is often used to stress the responsible use of OTC medicines by patients with healthcare professional support, where necessary.

Due to various sociocultural and economic factors, self-medication is a very common practice in India. However, the benefits of the same are much lesser than the potential dangers one might face as a result of self-medication. Let’s take a looks at the benefits and dangers of self-medication.

Dangers of self- medication
Self-medication is not only risky, but can also prove to be life-threatening in some cases. If you want to self-medicate, you should be able to recognise the symptoms that you are treating and should be confident that your medical condition is suitable for self-medication, and you should also be able to choose an appropriate medicine, and finally, you must also be able to follow the directions for use of the medicine as stated on the product labelling.

Now these are big asks. Not everyone is capable of ticking all the above boxes. This makes self-medication particularly dangerous. The doctor or a health professional is responsible for interpreting both signs and symptoms of an illness and the side effects of a medicine.

Patients can’t decide by themselves which medicine to take for what symptoms and what are the contraindications or side effects. For example, you may decide to self-medicate for a headache and this medicine interacts with another medicine that you are taking for a chronic issue and you land up in the ICU due to the two medicines interacting.

Here are some potential risks that can be posed by self-medication:

  1. One may misdiagnose
  2. Wrong dosage
  3. Allergic and adverse drug reactions
  4. Drug interactions and resistance
  5. Contraindications
  6. Mask a severe illness
  7. Make a mistake in identifying the right drugs
  8. Taking the right medicine at the wrong time

Lay persons don’t know that people vary greatly in their sensitivity or reaction to drugs and that an appropriate dose for one person may not be appropriate for another and may actually be dangerous. This situation is further worsened in many countries around the world where the regulatory mechanisms controlling drug sale are weak and most drugs including certain prescription medicines are available to the lay person without a doctor’s prescription.

It is important that you realize that self-medication can prove to be extremely dangerous for your health and may also be responsible for making an illness worse; so, one should consult a doctor before self-medicating to avoid any kind of medical emergencies and fatalities. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a General Physician.

Although it is too late to do anything, chances are that your egg was probably not yet formed so early in the cycle (6th day). So it is unlikely that you will get pregnant.

Hello, Please get a urine pregnancy test done and rule out pregnancy. Ideally you should have bled after 7-10 days post unwanted 72 intake so its important to rule out pregnancy.

I am a married women. I dont have any children yet. Now it's only 2 years after marriage. I have eaten i pill two times. Is this is the reason for not conceiving. Now I heard some people who used I pill cannot conceive and some others have cervical cancer and cancer in uterus. Did I need to check for cancer? If so which tests are to be done immediately? Which tests I have to be done for clarifying that I have any problem in conceiving?

Frequent use of I pill can have some side effects but you have not taken it too often. If you have any symptoms of cancer, only then we will suggest you tests regarding that, otherwise no need. For your conceiving, 1st of all your cycle is seen. Is it regular? have you done any scan of lower abdomen (abdomino pelvis, any blood tests?
