Importance of Daily Walking

MBBS, AFIH, PGDMLS, MD-HRM, MD-HM

Importance of Daily Walking

As human beings are called as a bipedal animal, we must make use of our legs to walk and move here and there which is not at all happening because of vehicle usage and advent of transport media.
Walking a good distance say 3-5 km on a daily basis is must if you really want to get a strong spine, strong legs and good cardiac compliance and resilient body.
In defence, the word'parade' is used and practiced so much so that every defence personnel develops the habit of walking and thus maintain their fitness.
The first thing that the child learns is crawling and then later on standing and walking a good distance and the toddler just run in-house as this is one of the most natural ways of our existence. Remember walking is the first milestone before talking that's how probably walk the talk is more relevant as per the milestone development theory, isn't it!
Daily walking increase levels of endorphins, activates glucagon and reduces insulin thus achieves the best balance and rejuvenation.
Walk is a simple exercise to carry out and during pregnancy, it is safe and more easy to keep good muscle tone.
Cycling too is good leg and back activity but more strenuous than walk.

Hello, You haven't mentioned about your normal menstrual cycle and the last date of menses as well. Normal cycle of 28days of menses will be having ovulation period at around 14th day of the cycle. So, 3-4 days before and after this 14th day is supposed to be the period when the chances of getting pregnant are high! And rest of the days are safe when the chances of getting pregnant are less or remote. There is an old saying - Prevention is always better than cure! So, recommend you to follow the same, use any contraceptive method (condom, oral contraceptive pills) till the time you don't want to conceive. Once you have decided to plan for a baby, then you may stop intake of any of these methods.

Get yourself examined and tested to rule out hypothyroidism and pcos. Learn to relax consciously as stress also is a cause for delayed periods!

How many months can we give breastfeeding to babies. My baby is 9 months old and I am planning to stop breastfeeding to her because people say longer you give breastfeeding you get back pain because I have gone through cesarean delivery. Is it true.?

Fellowship In Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology And Nutrition, MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Mumbai
No. Its not true. If you breastfeed the child in correct position you won't get back pain. Its positional. Not related to breastfeeding. You can breastfeed the child till 2 years. Slowly reduce it instead of stopping suddenly. Start giving the home food soft diet from 6 months onwards.

Infertility - Causes And Treatment

MBBS, DGO
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Infertility - Causes And Treatment

Infertility is defined as the inability to conceive after 12 months of unprotected intercourse. For women aged 35 and older, inability to conceive after 6 months is generally considered infertility. Repeated pregnancy loss (2 or more spontaneous pregnancy losses) can also be considered infertility. Recent estimates indicate infertility affects 10-15 percent of the population in their childbearing years.

If you experience recurrent pregnancy loss, or if you have not been able to become pregnant within a year (six months if the woman’s age is over 35, 2-3 months if over 40), then you may benefit from assessment and treatment by a reproductive endocrinologist - a doctor with a special interest, training and expertise in the area of infertility. It’s a state that results in the abnormal functioning of the male or female reproductive system.

The causes for infertility could be:

  1. Male factor - erectile dysfunction, ejaculatory dysfunction, problems with quality, count and quantity of semen

  2. Female factor - Tubal factor, ovulatory problems, abnormality of uterus, hormonal imbalance 

  3. Antisperm antibodies

The prime symptom is very obvious i.e. unable to have baby despite of having sex without any contraceptives.

Factors affecting fertility:

  1. Age: Female fertility gradually declines in the 30s, particularly after age 35. Each month that she tries, a healthy, fertile 30-year-old woman has a 20% chance of getting pregnant.

  2. Smoking: It increases risk of getting infertile and reduces the chances of treatment.

  3. Alcohol: Consumption of alcohol is said to lower the sperm count in men.

  4. Obesity: An overweight person has a higher chances of having sperm abnormality.

  5. Workout: Less or very heavy work out is said to increase the chances of infertility.

  6. Mental Stress: Studies suggests that ovulation and sperm production may be affected by mental stress. If at least one partner is stressed it is possible that the frequency of sexual intercourse is less, resulting in a lower chance of conception.

  7. Sexually Transmitted infections can also adversely affect the fertility of a person.

When to take further advice and course of action?

In case the women trying to conceive is less than 35 years of age, then 12 months and if more than 35 years, then in 6 months itself one needs to get in touch with the Specialist/Reproductive Endocrinologist/Gynaecologist or a Urologist for a complete diagnosis.

Many cases of apparent infertility are treatable. Infertility may have a single cause in one of the partners, or it could be the result of a combination of factors in both men and women.

There are many treatments available that improve the chances of having a baby. Such treatments include:

  1. Hormones treatment

  2. Drugs for fertility

  3. Surgery in some cases

Also one the oldest form of medications such as Ayurveda as well as Homeopathy is said to have a wonderful treatment of Infertility. With the developments in medical sciences, there are lot of treatments available; however, such treatments sometimes become the victim of their own success causing multiple births – Two, Three or may be more.

Some Assisted Treatments are:

  1. Intrauterine insemination

  2. In Vitro Fertilization

  3. Intracytoplasmic sperm injection

  4. Donation of Sperm or Egg

  5. Assisted Hatching

  6. Electric or Vibratory Stimulation to achieve ejaculation

  7. Surgical Sperm Aspiration

It is important to understand the complete treatment before going ahead and be aware of the possible outcomes and be psychologically ready.

Please do not keep it to yourself and consult an expert. Never go for self medication! If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

I am a seventeen year old girl. I have some kind of translucent secretion from my breasts. I have not found any kind of lump in both the breasts and it's not painful either. I was just wondering where the actual problem lies and how can I heal the condition?

FICS, FCCP (USA), DNB (General Surgery), MS - General Surgery, MBBS
General Surgeon, Delhi
The discharge will be watery and will stain the clothing your wear. This is secretions of the glands in the breast under the effect of the hormonal changes that you are under going at puberty. They will disappear into your twenties. But a careful clinical and imaging examination of the breast is essential to detect something more sinister.

Since you have a 30 -32 days of cycle, so your fertile period will be around 10th day of your cycle till 20th day. In this duration there are maximum chances of conception. Also considering your age, get these tests done on day 2 of cycle fsh lh amh tsh prolactin and usg lower abdomen. Since you have pcod also, it may take time in conceiving naturally. Start doing some weight loss exercise if you are overweight, if will enhance your fertility also.

Benefits of Black Tea in Hindi - काली चाय के फायदे

Benefits of Black Tea in Hindi - काली चाय के फायदे

बात जब ताजगी की हो तब चाय जेहेन में आता है पर क्या आप जानते हैं चाय सिर्फ ताजगी के लिए ही नही बल्कि और भी कई बातों के लिए खास है। 
पर हां चाय जी किस्म की होती है दूध शक्कर वाली, नीबू वाली, अजवाइन की,अदरक काली मिर्च इलायची तेज पत्ते, ग्रीन टी, हर्बल टी, ब्लैक टी इत्यादि। हम सभी अपनी पसंद से चाय चुनते और पीते हैं। और आज हम बात करेंगे काली चाय से मिलने वाले फायदों की।
क्या आपको काली चाय यानी ब्लैक टी पीनी अच्छी लगती है? अगर हाँ तो बधाई हो। आपको जानकर खुशी होगी कि जिस ब्लैक टी को आप पीना प्रेफर करते हैं उसे अगर सीमित मात्रा में सही तरीके से पिएंगे तो आपको स्वाद और ताजगी के साथ हेल्थ बेनिफिट्स भी मिलेंगे। कई तरह की रिसर्च से यह बात साबित हो चुकी है कि दूध से बनी चाय की बजाय बिना दूध वाली चाय का सेवन हमारे शरीर के लिए अधिक लाभदायक हो सकता है।
बिना दूध की चाय को काली चाय कहते हैं। 
जो लोग ज़्यादा चाय पीते हैं उनको काली चाय पीनी चाहिए। ज्यादा नार्मल टी यानी दूध की चाय पीने की मनाही होती है क्योंकि दूध के चाय के कई साइड इफ़ेक्ट होते हैं। पर वहीं ब्लैक टी है कई मायनों में फायदेमंद। तो आज हम जानेंगे काली चाय पीने के फायदे पर उसके पहले जानते है

काली चाय बनाने की विधि। 

  1. काली चाय बनाने के लिए आवश्यक सामग्री
  2. 1 कप पानी
  3. 1/2 चम्मच काली चाय पत्ती

बनाने की विधि

  • चाय बनाने के बर्तन में एक कप पानी डालिए
  • इसमें आधा चम्मच काली चाय पत्ती डालिए
  • इस मिश्रण को उबाल कर छान लीजिए
  • लीजिए हो गई आपकी काली चाय तैयार 
     

तो अब आप जानिए की इस साधारण तरीके से बनाई गई ब्लैक टी के कुछ खास स्वास्थ्य लाभ:

  • मोटापा घटाए: काली चाय में दूध और चीनी न होने के कारण वज़न कम किया जा सकता है। चाय में मौजूद एंटीऑक्सीडेंट मोटापा कम करने, फ़ैट बर्न करने और कोलेस्ट्राल कंट्रोल करने में बहुत लाभदायक होते हैं। चाय में दूध डालने से एंटीऑक्सीडेंट का असर कम हो जाता है। जबकि काली चाय पीने से 70% से अधिक कैलोरी बर्न होती है, जिससे वेट कम करने में आसानी होती है।
  • घटाए डायबिटीज का रिस्क: रोजाना ब्लैक टी के सेवन से डायबिटीज यानि मधुमेह होने की संभावना कम हो जाती है। इसके सेवन से ब्लड सर्कुलेशन सिस्टम से जुड़े तमाम रोग तथा टाइप 2 मधुमेह का भी खतरा बेहद कम हो जाता है।
  • कैंसर होने का चांस घटाए:  काली चाय में पाए जाने वाले एंटी-ऑक्सीडेंट की वजह से कैंसर होने की संभावना कम होती है।
  • डाइजेशन सुधारे:  ब्लैक टी में पाया जाने वाला टैनिन तथा अन्य उपयोगी तत्व पाचनक्रिया के लिए बेहद फायदेमंद होते हैं तथा ये पाचन तंत्र को मजबूत बनाते हैं।
  • वजन घटाने के लिए असरदार: अगर आप अपने बढ़े हुए वजन को कम करना चाहते हैं तो इसके लिए सबसे बढ़िया उपाय है काली चाय को पीना। ब्लैक टी में उपस्थित एंटी-ऑक्सीडेंट वजन को घटाने में मदद करते हैं। साथ ही ब्लैक टी पीने से पेट हल्का हो जाता है, चर्बी कम होती है और शरीर ऊर्जावान बनता है। जिससे आपको मोटापा कम करने के लिए व्यायाम और योग करने में मदद मिलती है। और हां काली चाय पीने से भूख कम लगती है, जिससे अतिरिक्त चर्बी घटाने में मदद मिलती है। इसका सेवन शरीर में मेटोबोलिस्म को बढ़ाता है जिसकी वजह से वजन कम होता है।
  • स्किन बेनिफिट्स: काली चाय में विटामिन B2, C, E एवं मिनरल्स जैसे लाभकारी तत्व उपस्थित होते हैं जो हमारी त्वचा के लिए अत्यधिक फायदेमंद होते हैं। इनके अलावा पोटैशियम, मैग्नीशियम, जिंक इत्यादि तत्व भी मौजूद होते हैं। ब्लैक टी का सेवन त्वचा में होने वाले संक्रमण से हमारी रक्षा कर हमारी त्वचा के दाग-धब्बो को दूर भगाने में मदद करता है। इसके नियमित सेवन से त्वचा की शिकन यानी रिंकल्स भी दूर होते हैं।
  • मुँह सम्बन्धी तकलीफ दूर करे: ब्लैक टी में फ्लोराइड भरपूर मात्रा में होता है जो मुँह की दुर्गन्ध को दूर करता है और मुँह को नुकसानदायक जीवाणुओं से बचाता है।तो बस काली चाय पीजिए और फैलाइए सांसों की खुशबू ना कि बदबू। 
  • हार्ट-स्ट्रोक का खतरा हो कम: अगर आप नियमित तौर पर काली चाय पीते हैं तो न केवल आपका वजन काबू में रहता है बल्कि इसमें उपस्थित फ्लावोनोइड आपके शरीर में खराब कोलेस्ट्रॉल के बनने से बचाता है जिससे हार्ट-स्ट्रोक होने का खतरा काफी कम हो जाता है।
  • हेडेक में राहत: अधिकतर लोग सिर दर्द होने पर दूध वाली चाय पीना पसंद करते हैं लेकिन इसकी जगह आप बिना दूध वाली मतलब ब्लैक टी पीएं तो यह न केवल सिर दर्द ठीक करती है बल्कि अन्य काफी फायदे भी देती है।
  • कोलेस्ट्रॉल लेवल कंट्रोल में लाए: काली चाय का नित्य सेवन आपके कोलेस्ट्रॉल स्तर को नियंत्रित रखता है। जिसकी वजह से खुद ब खुद कई बीमारियों से बच जाते हैं।
  • हड्डियां बनें मजबूत: ररेगुलर काली चाय पीने से इसमें शामिल फाइटोकेमिकल्स की वजह से हमारे शरीर की हड्डियाँ मजबूत होती हैं। 
  • खून करे पतला: काली चाय ख़ून को गाढ़ा नहीं होने देती है, जिससे नसों में ख़ून का थक्का नहीं जमता है।

तो इस तरह मोटापा कम करने के साथ-साथ अनेक बीमारियों से बचने के लिए नियमित ब्लैक टी पी सकते हैं। 
हां ये सच है कि शुरुआत में आपको इसका स्वाद अच्छा नहीं लगेगा, लेकिन लाभ मिलने से आपको इसकी आदत हो जाएगी।
एक बात का ध्यान रहे कि गर्मी के दिनों और लूजमोशन या गर्मी के कारण हुई बीमारियों के दौरान चाय पीने से बचें।
तो आज ही अपने आपसे कीजिए वादा की जब भी आप चाय पीएंगे तो वह होगी काली चाय।

Your have had repeated early pregnancy losses. As a couple you both need to be checked thoroughly for specific causes of this problem. It could be any of genetic, hormonal, immunological, infections, uterine, cervical and environmental reasons. If a cause is found, it has to be treated before you try for pregnancy again. The tests are expensive. The medicines you are taking are an attempt to raise your chances of conception in the current cycle. If you want natural pregnancy, you have to try for 3 months without medications, specially during the most fertile period. If after 3 months still no success, then HSG test for you and semen test for your husband will be needed.
