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.

Pregnancy me stomach pain hota h (due to foods or urinary infection) Us pain ko kaise Kum kra ja skta h.
Some short-term achiness in your belly is normal during pregnancy, and you can experience different sensations in different trimesters. Here are some common causes: 1. Implantation Many women feel menstrual-like pain or cramps for a day or so early in pregnancy. This usually happens when the embryo is embedding itself in the uterine lining. 2. Stretching ligaments In the second trimester, the muscles and ligaments that support the uterus stretch, causing a dull ache across the belly or a sharp pain on one side. Many women feel this pain most when getting up from a bed, chair, or bathtub, or while coughing. 3. False labor In the second and third trimesters, you may feel contractions or an irregular tightening of your uterine muscles, often called Braxton-Hicks contractions or false labor. These are usually painless and tend to increase in the weeks leading up to your due date. It’s probably false labor if the contractions stop when you walk, are irregular, and don’t get more intense or rapid over time. 4. Cramping In the last weeks of pregnancy, cramping that feels like a backache or menstrual cramps may be a sign that labor is imminent. 5. Normal pains Normal abdominal pain may be the result of gas and bloating from the hormones that slow down digestion, pressure from your growing uterus, constipation, or heartburn. Changing positions, walking, or moderate exercise (such as housework) may help ease gas pains. Relief from abdominal aches When you feel abdominal achiness: Sit down, put your feet up, and relax. Resting comfortably should relieve your symptoms. A hot water bottle or heating pad (on the lowest setting) might help. Drink lots of liquids to stay hydrated. When you do feel a pain, bend towards the pain to relieve it. Homeopathy For Stomach Ailments: Flatulence and constipation are also usual conditions that pregnant women have to face. Here are some homeopathy remedies for them: Chelidonium: It is advised for constipation and dark stool. Magnesium Phosphoricum: Apart from treating pain in stomach, relaxes muscles and cures cramps in other body parts too. Lycopodium: It is prescribed when you feel bloated after meals. Phosphorus: It will help when you are feeling pale and weak, as well as constipated. Sulphur: It is great for women having liver problems and loose stool. Carbo Veg: It is recommended when there is a sharp pain in stomach, along with acidity or flatulence. Apart from these remedies, homeopathy is also successful in curing swelling in body, weakness and varicose veins. It works especially well for treating psychological conditions like mood swings, irritability and wanting to be left alone.

My wife has undergone IUI on March 19th. She is having pinkish red bleeding from April 2nd for 2 days. She is not having much bleeding today. She is also taking duphaston 10 mg everyday. Her new cycle is expected to start from April 5th. Can she still be pregnant?

While taking duphaston, menses can come scany. As she bled for 2 days it looks like menses only but still possibility of pregnancy can not be ruled out, it can be implantation bleeding also. So after 7 days if her proper menses do not start, then you should get urine pregnancy test done.

Sex is just made up of 3 words but this word has a great depth in itself. By sex you do not mean just sexual intercourse and game over. Sex depends upon a number of factors and some main contributors are--------------- 1. Your overall relation with your partner--------------------------- 2. How is your image in the eyes of your partner------------------ 3. Whether you respect your partners thoughts or not---------------- 4. Whether you do sex because you want it-------------------have you realised what your partner wants------------- 5. Time spent on foreplay------------------------------------- 6. Whether she feels secured in your company-------------------------- so manish think of all the above factors and see where you are lacking and you will yourself get the answer------------------------

Table Salt, Sea Salt, Rock Salt Which Is Best

Table Salt, Sea Salt, Rock Salt Which Is Best

Salt salt salt. Table, rock or sea which is the best.

It's like asking mirror mirror on the wall who is the best among all.

Table salt, sea salt, and rock salt are all the same thing: sodium chloride. And they all have the same sodium content (40%). The differences are primarily in texture and taste.

Table salt is made from rock salt harvested from inland deposits (with iodine sometimes added as an extra nutrient). Rock salt is made from similar sources, but it's usually additive-free and has a coarser texture. Sea salt, as its name suggests, is harvested from evaporated seawater. 

The unrefined version i.e. Rock salt and sea salt has more minerals compared to table salt as during the refining process table salt loses calcium, potassium, etc.

Consequently, it has a slightly different flavor. In the end, though, they all contribute equally to your total sodium consumption. 

Just remember whichever salt you are planning to use. The "amount" you use is of utmost importance. Too much of any of them will have a negative effect on your health.

Health Benefits of Flax Seeds

Master in Food & Nutrition, B.Sc. - Home Science

Health Benefits of Flax Seeds

With increasing awareness about eating healthy, certain seeds are now being considered as super foods. Flax seeds, also known as “Alsi”, have amazing benefits and are recommended by all nutritionists.

Listed below are a few benefits of flax seeds:

  1. Help in losing weight: Flax seeds are loaded with required fats and fibre and consuming a handful of these seeds will make you feel full for longer. This reduces the temptation to binge eat and results in fewer calories consumed during the day. The ALA (alpha-linolenic acid) fats present in the flax seeds have also been found to reduce inflammation.

  2. Maintain heart health: Flax seeds are almost phenomenal as the fats contained in them are unsaturated fats which are wonderful for your health. Because these fats remain in the form of ALA fats, they help you in maintaining and improving heart health by reducing bad cholesterol and retaining the good cholesterol. Thus, the chances of getting a stroke or an attack are relatively low.

  3. Flaxseeds are High in Antioxidants (Lignans): Amongst its other incredible nutrition facts, flax seeds are also packed with antioxidants. Lignans are also known for their anti-viral and antibacterial properties, therefore consuming flax regularly may help reduce the number or severity of colds and flus.

  4. Improve colon health: These seeds are packed with fibre and are very low in unsaturated fats. This makes them useful in improving digestive health. Also, the fibre content makes bowel movements smoother and reduces constipation and diarrhoea.

  5. Healthy, supple and glowing skin: Adding flax seeds to your daily diet is a great idea as they are packed with ALA fats and Vitamin B which help in reducing flakiness and dryness of skin. Consuming flax seeds regularly also helps in getting rid of the symptoms of acne and eczema and are proven to reduce dry eye syndrome and puffiness. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

How Ayurveda Helps Manage Drug Addiction?

How Ayurveda Helps Manage Drug Addiction?

Drug addiction is an addiction of a very severe kind. This causes the sufferer i.e. the drug addict to seek and use drugs compulsively despite the destructive consequences to themselves and those around them. This is known as a chronic brain disease because of the functional and structural changes it causes in the brain. It is the overpowering dependence on illegal or legal medications and drugs. One cannot quit taking drugs just by strong will or good intentions. Ayurveda's holistic method combines exercises, meditation, and herbal medicines to cure addiction towards drugs.

Ayurvedic Remedies:

  1. Panchakarma Therapies-Only an ayurvedic expert should perform the panchakarma therapies and rituals on you. It promotes cleanliness and helps in detoxifying the body. These therapies are done using various herbs and oils in accordance with the ancient traditions to eliminate negative conditions.
  2. Virechana-It is the most useful Panchakarma therapy to treat addiction. Virechana is known to cleanse the gastro-intestinal tract and purify the blood of toxins of a period of a few days. It helps decontaminate your spleen, stomach, liver, kidneys, colon, intestines and sweat glands through varied herbs and laxatives such as castor oil, mango juice, raisins, cow's milk, psyllium seeds, flaxseed husk, prune and senna.
  3. Rasayana therapies-Rasayana therapy is another very useful Ayurvedic treatment for treating drug abuse and addiction. It is based upon the transmutation and conservation of energy to improve the mental as well as physical characteristics in order to increase your body's natural metabolic processes while enhancing your immune system and brain function. Rasayana therapy consists of intricate face, head and full body massages which are combined with medicated creams and herb oils. This therapy is also useful to remove artificial aging which occurs due to prolonged drug abuse.
  4. Yoga-The chaotic chemicals are known to wreak havoc on the drug addict's brain during the process of recovery. Resorting to exercise or yoga will help generate extra endorphins which are very helpful for clarity. To recover from drug addiction, you must join a structured yoga class along with other ayurvedic therapies. Yoga is beneficial since it stimulates every part of your body without applying too much stress on any one part. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ayurveda.

If you have bled for 2 to 4 days changing at least 2 pads in a day, the possibility of pregnancy is very less. However if the bleeding is lighter then you may take a urine pregnancy test at home to confirm or rule out pregnancy.
