Bleeding during pregnancy can occur because of some little bit detachment of placenta if both you and your baby are fine now then don't worry just follow your doctor's advise and relax.

Dear lybrate user. If the unprotected sex happened before 4 days from period and after 7 days from period, then the chances of pregnancy is good. As female partner took ipill, the chances has nullified. Don't worry. Take care.

At 42 years, even if there is no fibroid, such irregular and heavy bleeding should never be ignored. Mere usg is never sufficient. You need cervical assessment by gynecologist, preferably a tvs and some other tests to make sure that there is no serious issue.

Hello, menorrhagia with clots is possible due to stress induced hormonal imbalance, so just wait and watch and maintain a menstrual calendar for next 3 months. if the menses are heavier, then you can opt for antifibrinolytics.

Yes, this is called shirodkar stitch, given to close mouth of uterus which remains open - due to repeated abortions/ instrumentations. As a rule the mouth is tightly shut, being elastic tissue it opens only at delivery or periodically during periods to let the collected blood out, closes again, once elasticity is lost, mouth of uterus called cervix cannot regain its normal tight self again, stitch is opened just before delivery to let the baby out. During your 2nd pregnancy, same process will be followed to save you from any mishap like miscarriage / infection to growing baby due to open mouth of uterus.

Get an ultrasound whole abdomen done. You may have some hormonal imbalance thats why no periods and pregnancy test also negative. Get your hormones (tsh fsh lh prolactin) tested.

10 natural remedies to cure irregular periods

One common problem amongst a lot for women is irregular periods. While normally women have eleven to thirteen periods in a year, those suffering from irregular periods might have lesser than even six or seven. While this can be due to various problems, there exist some foods which can help cure this problem

1) ginger - often used to relieve menstrual pain, ginger is also used to correct irregular periods. You can include powdered ginger in your food or drink ginger tea.

2) cinnamon - one superfood which has a lot of health benefits is cinnamon. One can have cinnamon powder with tea or lemon juice to cure irregular periods.

3) aloe vera - it is responsible for regulating hormones in our bodies. Drinking aloe vera juice not only helps reduce weight but also regulates the periods.

4) turmeric - it is known to balance the hormones and stimulate flow of blood in the uterus. Drinking it with milk helps relieve spasm and regulate irregular periods.

5) papaya - raw papaya aids in increasing the flow of blood in the uterus and in uterine contractions, thus helping cure irregular periods.

6) sesame seeds - these help in producing and balancing hormones. Eating them also helps in regulating irregular pain.

7) jaggery - it is rich in minerals and iron, hence help cure irregular periods which can arise due to anemia.

8) grapes - grapes too contain iron and help curing irregular periods caused due to anaemia.

9) buttermilk - with calcium, potassium, proteins and vitamin b complex, buttermilk aids hormone secretion, thus helping cure irregular periods.

10) coriander - its juice is another food that helps cure irregular periods.

Hello. Your mother appears to be affected by a condition called epilepsy (most probably generalised tonic clonic siezure) which is going to remain there for life. As she is taking zeptol 400 (carbamazepine) regularly, it is the drug of choice for this condition too along with valproate and is quite safe too. This medicine is not the cause for diabetes and hyperchlesterolemia. But as she has already taken medications for more than 15 years with out occurance of single episode of convulsion and unconsiousness, now she can be tried for dose tapering or drug withdrawal. Please consult your physian for that and take proper medical advise with physical cheak up. Take care & be healthy.

Are You Chewing Your Food Enough? + 4 Reasons Why You Must!

How to identify you're not chewing your food enough?

Are you always in a hurry while eating or multitask while chewing your food? then it is highly probable that you don't chew your food enough. A recent survey revealed that on an average people chew their food only 6 six times before swallowing, which is far less than enough. Chewing food for an adequate amount of time is necessary for a healthy digestive system and can help you avoid lots of health problems.

Here's why you should chew your food properly.

So what happens to your body when you don't chew your food enough?

Mastication is the name given to the process of chewing food. Mastication, if not done properly, can lead to various health problems like-

1. Incomplete digestion: digestion starts in the mouth itself and chewing has a significant role in it. The salivary glands are stimulated to release an alkaline enzyme, called ptyalin, by chewing. This enzyme combines with carbohydrates to initiate the process of the conversion of food into simpler sugars by splitting. Not chewing food properly may be a causative agent for digestive problems like gas, bloating, and diarrhoea to name a few.

2. Increased threat of bacterial overgrowth: if food is not chewed properly it cannot be completely broken down by the digestive system. The partially digested portion of food may result in increased amount of bacteria in the colon, leading to stomach infections.

3. Bad oral health: if you don't chew food enough, plaque build-up in your mouth may increase, which can further lead to tooth decay. This is because improper chewing means lesser amount of saliva secretion, and more chances of accumulation of unbroken food particles in the mouth, causing cavities.

4. Lesser nutrient absorption: when you don't chew your food properly, larger food particles don't break into smaller ones. This makes absorption of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients difficult for your body when they pass through the intestines.

Indications that you don't chew your food properly

If you don't chew food for an adequate amount of time, your body begins to give warning signs. This can affect your health significantly, and the following symptoms show if you don't do it properly.

1. Frequent digestive problems: if you are frequently experiencing digestive problems like acid reflux, constipation or heartburn then there are good chances that the problem is inadequate chewing of food.

2. Weight gain: one of the reasons behind weight gain may be consuming too many calories without realising. This can happen when you eat fast, which indicates that you don't crush and grind your food properly inside your mouth.

3. Recurrent mood swings: researchers are of the opinion that improper chewing of food gives rise to digestive problems, which in turn may often ruin your mood.

How many times should you chew each bite?

Researchers at Ohio state university are of the opinion that you should chew each mouthful of food for a minimum of 30 times. However, they mentioned that chewing softer food like potatoes for 5 to 10 times is enough.
