Hi srivali.... Let me tell you first thing that the medicine you are taking or any other alopathic medicine will never cure the PCOD...and you will have to take regular medicine...and even after taking that you will suffer the consequences unaltered... They just mask the symptoms from surface while the disease keeps progressing underneath.... Nonetheless it is a hormone and there are other complications of taking hormones for a longer time too... The best solution to this if you believe me is homoeopathic treatment as there many chances of it being permanently cured... You may consult to any good homoeopath of your trust.. but my advise is to start homoeopathic treatment..

My friend and her boyfriend had unprotected sex on the 24th and 25th day of her cycle, where usual cycle are in a range of 25-29. She hasn't got her periods till date and also afraid that is there any chance of being pregnant.

Hello lybrate-user, hello dear, do not worry. Following are the reason for late periods with abdominal pain: 1. High level of stress 2. Change in life style 3. Late ovulation 4. Excessive exercise 5. Drugs: birth control pills, tyroid medication, excessive tea and caffeine 6. Thyroid problem 7. Hormonal imbalane: I think it is most common reason in your case just do pregnancy test after 5-6 days to confirm pregnancy. If this will remain long time in future, consultant with gynecologist. Do hormonal tset: estrogen, progesteron, lh, fsh and thyroid profile hope this may help you. Wish you good health.

Psychologist, Bangalore
Stress Management

What is stress?

There are situations in life when a person is required to perform beyond his/her normal capacity, or situations when some expectations are not met. This creates anxiety, fear and anger. This is a situation where a person feels inadequate, under-confident and experiences loss of control. This affects a person's physical and mental wellbeing. This feeling of fear, anxiety, restlessness is commonly known as "tension or stress".

Symptoms of Stress :

  1. Anger and Aggression: While under stress a person starts doubting his/her own capacity and efficiency because he/she feels inadequate or incapable of performing certain tasks. This creates a lot of anger or frustration and sometime, may result into aggressive behaviour. 
  2. Irritability: Under stress people get irritated for no reason. There is loss of patience, loss of sense of humour.
  3. Sleep Disorders: A person under stress may not be able to sleep at all or in some cases sleep excessively.
  4. Eating Disorders: A person under stress may lose appetite or in some cases, tend to overeat resulting in harmful effects on body.
  5. Anxiety: Stress may cause a lot of anxiety and restlessness. The person under stress may not to able to concentrate and unable to focus on any activity, making things more complicated.
  6. Depression: In a few cases a person under a lot of stress may go into depression.
  7. High BP: Body and mind are closely connected. Hence stress in mind creates stress in the body and under stress, blood pressure may rise.
  8. High Sugar Level: Stress may increase the blood sugar levels.
  9. Headache or Unexplained Body Pains: Stress may cause headache or body aches in different parts of the body, without any physical reason for it. 

Sometimes, there may not be any symptoms for stress but the trauma manifests in the form to heart attack, Stroke etc.

What causes stress ?

  1. Relationship Issues - Conflicts in relationships is a major cause of stress.
  2. Life style - Working for long hours, sedentary life style, unhealthy food habits, along with insatiable urge for money causes a lot of stress.
  3. High expectations from oneself and from others - The peer pressure, the pressure of constant deadlines builds up a huge stress. When a person has very high expectations from himself/herself without corresponding efforts, there is a fear of failure which causes lot of tension. At the same time, having unrealistic expectations from others also is a definite reason for disappointments, resulting in stress.
  4. Physical and Emotional Abuse - When a person is physically or emotionally abused and unable to defend himself/herself for various reasons, it causes frustration. This results in anger and stress.
  5. Competition - Unhealthy competitions with others create a feeling of inadequency and result in lower self esteem and sadness, thereby causing stress.
  6. Health Issues - Chronic and serious health issues cause lot of tension.
  7. Suppressed Emotions - Lack of freedom to express own emotions and feelings, amounts to stress.
  8. Lack of Assertiveness - Inability to say "No", when wanting to say so, inability to fight for one's own rights, causes tension and anger.
  9. Boredom - Lack of creative/interesting occupation may cause stress especially in old people or people with physical disabilities.
  10. Low self esteem, feeling hopeless and helpless - If a person has low self esteem and does not value oneself, it causes lots of negativity and stress.

Why stress management is important?
Body and mind affect each other's functioning. When the mind is stressed out, it gets reflected in the body in the form of high blood pressure, high sugar levels, indigestion, acidity, heartburn, ulcers, skin rashes, headache, nausea, cancer, eating disorders, psychosomatic pains etc. It may trigger asthma, migraine etc.

Because of these harmful effects of stress, the body's capacity to function reduces. At times, it may cause serious threat to one's life. Hence, it is very important to learn to relieve and also to manage stress, in order to have a long and healthy life.

There are a number of ways to relieve stress:

  1. Sleep, take rest, relax.
  2. Take a break from daily routine, do something different, take a short vacation.
  3. Go for a walk/jog/run/cycling. Practice Yoga, meditation, deep muscle relaxation, etc.
  4. Spend time with friends and family.
  5. Play with children.
  6. Spend time with pets.
  7. Pursue a hobby like reading, gardening, painting, music, dance, singing, cooking, etc.
  8. Recreation - Watch a movie, play, picnic, go for a drive or shopping.
  9. Pamper yourself with beauty treatments, massage, or your favourite food/drinks. 

How to manage Stress?
Stress is inevitable part of life now. Right from a kid going to Pre-Nursery school to senior citizens staying alone at homes and having severe health problems; all are under lot of stress. No one can avoid stress. But there are certain ways to manage your stress-

  1. Self-awareness. Learn more about your own self. Understand what induces stress in you, what tasks are difficult for you, what situations are difficult for you and then try to figure out the reasons why it is so. Try to resolve or modify your thoughts and attitude.
  2. Identify stressors and explore options. Once you identify what is causing your stress, try to find more options to resolve your issues.
  3. Reasonable Expectations and Feasible Goals. Have reasonable expectations from yourself and from others. Have goals which are possible for you to achieve.
  4. Learn assertive techniques. Learn to express your feelings, learn to fight for your own rights, understand and respect other's rights.

Try to minimise stress in life and lead a happy healthy life.

You have reasons to be depressed but that is no solution to your problem. 2. One can not say with 100% guarantee about other persons sexual history including your girl friend. 3. Wait till 90 days are over. Do HIV HEP b, VDRL tests. 4. Once HEP b negative both of you should take HEP b vaccines. For any further personal questions take private consult.

5 Indoor Plants That Are Natural Purifiers!

5 Indoor Plants That Are Natural Purifiers!

Gardening as a hobby has been a great way to grow plants for many households. In many cases people have confirmed that watching these plants sprout and grow can be a therapeutic experience altogether and provides them with positive energy and vibrancy. However, in the fast diminishing land space, growing a plant may not be the option anymore. “Not necessarily”- state some homemakers. It is very much possible to have some plants grown indoors and the positivity of growing them can be channeled across to your homes. These can benefit both the body and mind respectively.

Here are 5 plants you can grow indoors. You do not need a huge terrace or balcony,all you need is a little space right inside your home and a little care for these beautiful and useful plants.

  1. Areca Palm: This leafy plant can be grown anywhere in the house and it doesn’t require direct sunlight. These plants can grow as high as 25 feet outdoors but you can restrict them to about seven feet at indoor locations. Put them in a small container and once the roots get crowded the plant cannot grow in size and they work best as an effective natural humidifier. They also cleanse the air from impurities and can keep the air fresh.
  2. English Ivy: This green plant is a household name and helps in reducing airborne fecal matter particles. The plant needs sun light, hence it is best to keep it near the windows or stilts where you have adequate sunlight. Take care while watering and make sure that the soil is completely dry before watering it again.
  3. Aloe Vera: One of the most used plants in beauty products can be grown in-house. Aloe plants like to be dry and warm, and you can keep them in small pots and they do require sunlight. Do not keep these plants in a place where there is moisture as it may harm the leaves of the plant.
  4. Indian Basil: Commonly known as Tulsi, growing this plant is common across Asian regions, especially India. It requires no maintenance and you can plant the seeds easily. It requires normal sunlight and be even kept near the window slits. Basil leaves are one of the most enriching super foods that can keep many ailments at bay. Simply water them and watch it thrive.
  5. Spider Plant: This lovely plant combats benzene, formaldehyde, and xylene, a solvent used in the leather, rubber and printing industries. The plant derives its name from the uniquely shaped leaves that resembles a spider. The plant is also completely safe if you have pets. Water required is very minimal and if at all the plant turns brown, there is nothing to worry as it will get its green self back soon. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ayurveda.

Does IVF Results In Twins?

Multispecilaity IVF Clinic
IVF Specialist, Gurgaon
Does IVF Results In Twins?

In-vitro fertilisation (IVF) is one of the popular Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART) for treating infertility and helping couples to conceive. The process involves the fertilisation of the egg with the sperm in a laboratory and thereafter, inserting the embryo formed, into the uterus. But lack of understanding about the topic has given rise to a number of myths such as:

Myth 1: IVF increases your fertility levels

Instead of making you more fertile, IVF stops your natural fertility cycle. This is usually done through hormones that are taken at the beginning of the process. The aim of such an action is to essentially put an end to your natural fertility process and create in its place an artificial cycle.

Myth 2: IVF hormone injections make you prone to uncontrollable emotions

In actuality, IVF hormone injections don’t cause you to suffer from out of control emotions but make you happier. This is because they come packed with the female hormone oestrogen, which produce endorphins (brain chemicals) that give you a sense of wellbeing.  The wave of emotions that you end up experiencing is a result of the stress and anxiety surrounding the success of a cycle.  

Myth 3: IVF never fails but is always successful

The success of the procedure depends on a number of factors such as quality and quantity of embryos and age. It is said that chances of conception decreases with age, with women above 40 reporting reduced fertility potential as well as success rate. On the other hand, women below the age of 35 have about 41% chance of getting pregnant.

Myth 4: It causes you to have triplets or twins

No, it’s not necessary for multiple births to take place if you opt for IVF. You can reduce the prospect of having twins or triplets by cutting down on the number of embryos that get inserted into the uterus.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

That may be due to the weight of the baby which puts pressure on your rectum, or you may be having an excellent BMR, or you may be consuming good amount of roughage in your diet, as long as it is not any loose motions it is all fine.
