TO CAUSE PREGNANCY on a woman, sperm should be ejaculated inside the vagina or fresh sperm should be inseminated inside the vagina with some means. Pregnancy only happens when other aspects are too satisfied. In the given case, there is no chance of pregnancy. Take care.

It depends upon lactation. Some women do get pregnant while lactating and gap between 2 kids is 9 months plus. Get an intrauterine device fitted after ruling out pregnancy by urine test which can be deceptively positive during 40 days of post partum period reflected by previous pregnancy ultrasound can be more reassuring about no pregnancy why I am suggesting above is that some women do continue with the baby while intrauterine device fitted is intact and inplace oral. Pills are secreted through milk. Don't take pills don't depend upon local methods as failure rate is high.

Shivlingi Seeds Benefits and How To Use in Hindi -  शिवलिंगी बीज लाभ और कैसे उपयोग करें

हमारे आस-पास ऐसी बहुत सी चीजें मौजूद है जो औषधीय गुणों से भरपूर, हमारे लिए फायदेमंद हैं पर हम उनसे अनजान होते हैं। जानकारी का अभाव कई बार बगल में छोरा गांव में ढिंढोरा की कहावत को चरितार्थ करता है, जैसे शिवलिंगी बीज। जो अक्सर हमारे इर्द-गिर्द मौजूद होती है पर हम इससे और इसके गुणों से अनजान होने की वजह से अपनी समस्याएं सुलझाने के लिए हैरान होते है। तो आज हम ऐसी ही बहुगुणी वनस्पति की हम बात करेंगे जिसे शिवलिंगी बीज कहते हैं। हमारे वनों में, खेतों और खलिहानों में, आँगनो में और बाडों आदि में विभिन्न प्रकार की वनस्पतियाँ पाई जाती है। इन्ही में से एक है शिवलिंगी। शिवलिंगी का वैज्ञानिक नाम ब्रयोनोप्सिस लेसिनियोसा होता है। आप इसे अपने आस पास प्रचुर मात्रा में उगता हुआ देख सकते है। इसके बीजों की बनावट देखने से बिलकुल स्पष्ट रूप से शिवलिंग की रचना दिखाई देती है। शिवलिंगी बीज को सदियों से संतान प्राप्ति के लिए अचूक नुस्खे के तौर माना जाता रहा है। संतानविहीन दंपत्ती के लिये ये पौधा एक वरदान है। महिला को मासिक धर्म समाप्त होने के 4 दिन बाद प्रतिदिन सात दिनों तक संजीवनी के 5 बीज खिलाए जाए तो महिला के गर्भधारण की संभावनांए बढ़ जाती है। शिवलिंगी के बीजों को तुलसी और गुड के साथ पीसकर संतानविहीन महिला को खिलाया जाता है। महिला को जल्द ही संतान सुख की प्राप्ति होती है।

  • इसकी पत्तियों की चटनी बनती है। आयुर्वेद के अनुसार ये टॉनिक की तरह काम करती है। जिन महिलाओं को संतानोत्पत्ति के लिए इसके बीजों का सेवन कराया जाता है। उन्हें विशेषरूप से इस चटनी का सेवन कराया जाता है। पत्तियों को बेसन के साथ मिलाकर सब्जी के रूप में भी खाया जा सकता है। आदिवासीयों के अनुसार इस सब्जी का सेवन गर्भवती महिलाओं को करना चाहिए। जिससे होने वाली संतान तंदुरुस्त पैदा होती है।
  • शिवलिंगी के बीजों का उपयोग कर एक विशेष फार्मुला तैयार करते हैं ताकि जन्म लेने वाला बच्चा चुस्त, दुरुस्त और तेजवान हो। शिवलिंगी, पुत्रंजीवा, नागकेशर और पारस पीपल के बीजों की समान मात्रा लेकर चूर्ण बना लिया जाता है और इस चूर्ण का आधा चम्मच गाय के दूध में मिलाकर सात दिनों तक उस महिला को दिया जाता है। जिसने गर्भधारण किया होता है।
  • इसके बीजों के चूर्ण को बुखार नियंत्रण और बेहतर सेहत के लिए उपयोग में लाते हैं। अनेक हिस्सों में इसके बीजों के चूर्ण को त्वचा रोगों को ठीक करने के लिए भी इस्तमाल किया जाता है।
  • तो इस तरह शिवलिंगी बीज को साधारण नहीं समझे और जरूरत पड़ने पर इसके गुणों का लाभ जरूर उठाएं।

Prolactinoma - All You Need To Know About It!

Prolactinoma - All You Need To Know About It!

The body functions are controlled by hormones which are produced by various endocrine glands (named so because these glands secrete hormones directly into the body). There are various endocrine glands, and these are controlled by the master endocrine gland which is the pituitary gland.

The pituitary gland is attached to the base of the brain. It also produces prolactin which helps regulate milk production when a woman is breast-feeding. To a smaller extent, it also has some effect on other hormones.
Prolactinoma is a benign tumour of the pituitary gland which produces large amount of prolactin. The cells in the pituitary gland multiply to produce large amounts of prolactin. In people with prolactinoma, there are reduced amounts of oestrogen in females and testosterones in males.

Causes: Though the cause is unknown, a genetic connection believed to exist. Also, people who are hypothyroidic, pregnant, and/or breast-feeding have a higher chance of developing this condition. They can develop in men as well. Interestingly, this is the most common form of pituitary gland tumour.

Types: Depending on the size of the tumour, the tumour is of two main types—microprolactinoma (when the tumour measures less than 10 mm) and macroprolactinoma (when the tumour measures more than 10 mm).

Signs and symptoms: Though the most important function of prolactin is the regulation of breast milk production, it also has various other functions in both men and women. The symptoms, therefore, would depend on the gender and the age group.

Men: Reduced libido, erectile dysfunction, reduced fertility, and gynecomastia and sometimes even production of milk.

Women: Menstrual disorders, including lack of periods or irregular periods, reduced fertility, reduced libido, increased facial hair, and spontaneous leakage of milk from the breasts.

If teenagers are affected, there could be reduced growth and delayed puberty.
In addition to the above symptoms, as the tumour continues to grow, there could be pressure on the surrounding nerves, leading to headaches, blurred of vision, and even double vision. As the tumour grows, the normal pituitary functioning may be affected, and other hormones may not be produced and accordingly the symptoms would appear.

Treatment: One of the main reasons it gets diagnosed is infertility. When ruling out causes for infertility, prolactinoma is suspected and to rule this out blood tests are done. Increased amounts of the hormone would lead to undergoing MRI scans and other tests to confirm the diagnosis.

Once confirmed, the treatment would depend on the symptoms and the patient. It causes reduced amounts of oestrogen and testosterone, which is usually harmless. Unless required, some people can choose to go without any treatment. Hormone supplements can be used to restore the normal hormone levels. Dopamine antagonists can be used to suppress the production of prolactin from the pituitary gland. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Endocrinologist.

Procrastination - 5 Ways You Can Beat It!

Procrastination - 5 Ways You Can Beat It!

The activity of delaying or putting off something is known as procrastination. Even the best individuals battle with it consistently. However, some people accomplish something that the majority of us do not- they push past it. They do not permit it to influence their work. They develop brilliant and beneficial techniques to break past mental obstructions and remain productive. Here are a few ways with which you can beat procrastination:

  1. Try to start: Starting something can be very difficult. However, in case that you can get over that part, you will have some level of energy. Even your brain will probably goad you to continue dealing with the task. This happens because of a mental phenomenon called the Zeigarnik impact. It says that unfinished tasks will probably stay in your memory. This is exactly why planned things and to-do lists consistently appear in your mind until you finish them.
  2. Separate huge tasks into smaller assignments: Enormous tasks can frighten you, so you put them off. By taking that huge task and separating it into smaller assignments, you can decrease your burden make a start. This could include concentrating on one part of the research to begin with.
  3. Ask yourself “why?”: It is easier to inspire yourself to accomplish something you value. In case you are attempting to complete something, why not spend a couple of minutes asking yourself precisely why you need to do it and why it is so important to you. Weighing out the positives and negatives of the task and its benefits for you, can make you decide and perform better.
  4. Attempt to take a break: For those who procrastinate out of having worked too much, it does not mean you have to complete the task at once. This is known as the "sunk cost bias." The "sunk cost bias" influences players, speculators, and even a procrastinator. They feel that the task will need to be completed now and cannot be completed in the future. In some cases, a task simply does not mean you have to work on it more and more after hours.
  5. Go easy on yourself: To beat procrastination, you should be strict with yourself. However, that is not what science says. In case that you have procrastinated till now, you will probably begin on time going ahead. You need to show yourself some sympathy for your previous laziness instead of thrashing yourself about it.

Self-control is an important quality many successful individuals have. Having self-control permits you to carefully understand why you are procrastinating and can likewise, work towards it. When you understand why you are doing so, it will be easier for you to make a plan to beat it. This will allow you to see the underlying cause of your problem as well.

Mint (Pudeena) - 6 Surprising Health Benefits!

Multi Speciality Clinic
Multi Speciality, Gurgaon
Mint (Pudeena) - 6 Surprising Health Benefits!

Mint, scientifically  known as ‘mentha’, is a herb with small green leaves and a characteristic strong odour. It is also a virtual cure-all plant. Try using mint by adding it to your meals, oral care and skin care regimen to remain healthy and fresh forever. A few prominent mint health benefits include the following:

  1. Digestion aid: Try mint leaves if you are not feeling hungry. It is a great appetizer as well as a promoter of digestion. It soothes your stomach when you’re suffering from inflammation or indigestion. So, next time you have a stomach upset, go for mint tea or mint oil. Mint’s characteristic aroma acts as an appetizer. It stimulates the salivary glands and other digestive glands to produce saliva and digestive juices, thereby facilitating digestion.

  2. Nausea and headache: Mint leaves, especially freshly crushed leaves, help staunch nausea and headache, thanks to the strong and refreshing aroma. Menthol oil or mint-flavoured products are very useful for alleviating nausea. Similarly, balms with a mint base or mint oil can be rubbed on your forehead and nose to give quick relief from headache. Mint tea oil derived from mint is also very effective in treating nausea and motion sickness while travelling.

  3. Respiratory disorders: The strong minty aroma is very effective in clearing up congestion of the nose, throat, bronchi and lungs. This makes mint a very effective remedy for asthma and common cold. The herb is also a good remedy for cough. This is because mint has a cooling and soothing effect on the throat, nose and other respiratory channels, and this helps relieve the irritation, which causes chronic coughing. Regular use of mint in any form is very beneficial for asthma patients as well, because it is a good relaxant and it relieves congestion that blocks respiratory channels, causing symptoms of asthma.

  4. Depression and fatigue reliever: As mint is a natural stimulant, it can help relieve fatigue and feelings of sadness. Mint essential oil is very good if you are feeling anxious, sad, depressed, low or just plain sluggish. Mint oil can be ingested, applied as a salve topically, or inhaled as a vapour to help with fatigue and depression.

  5. Oral health: Mint has germicidal qualities and can quickly freshen up your breath. It also gets eradicates harmful oral bacteria inside your mouth, alleviating oral health. The mint leaves can be rubbed directly on your tongue, teeth and gums to clean and refresh your mouth. You can also get the benefits of mint by simply chewing on its leaves.

  6. Skin health: Since mint oil is a good antiseptic and anti-pruritic, it acts as an excellent skin cleanser. It is used to clear pimples as well as soothe and cure skin from infections.

Mint’s anti-pruritic properties can be used for treating insect bites, mosquito bites, stings by honeybees etc. With its cooling property, mint will relieve you of the irritation of stings and bring the swelling down. Also, women can use mint oil to relieve cracks and pain in nipples which occur during breastfeeding." If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.
