I have been gaining weight recently due to my PCOS. But every time I stand in the mirror, I hate the way that i look. I know I shouldn’t feel that way, but how can i stop myself from not liking myself?

Hi beautiful, I hope you are doing well. -Weight gain in PCOS is primarily seen due to insulin resistance, high androgen levels and high insulin levels. -However, I have good news for you 🙂 - You can live a healthy lifestyle even with PCOS, and you can lose weight in a healthier manner as well. - All you need to do is focus on your well-being. - Not everyone on Instagram has a perfect body and there are various applications that are used to morph one's appearance. - Hence, start my bringing in small changes in your lifestyle. - Workout for 20-30mins everyday. Begin with home-workouts. - Eat enough fibre, and protein in the diet. - Add salads to both your meals, and have yogurt/buttermilk twice a day. - Avoid packaged, ultra-processed, and refined foods. - Eat your favourite foods once in a while. - Go for a walk, take up a new hobby, focus on your health and on improving your health. - Don't focus on a perfect body, none of us are perfect ✨ you can book a one-one consultation with me.

Hello there, I completely understand what you must be going through. But instead of comparing yourself to the beauty standards of the society, compare yourself with you. First assess if you are physically healthy. Then Start taking care of yourself, your grooming, your dressing. You can be beautiful and gorgeous at any weight and with any body type as long as you are confident. Do some affirmations to feel beautiful and confident

I'm facing menopause problem these days.my mood swings are in such a way that I can not control them.
Hi there, I hope you are well. -Facing mood swings during the phase of premenopause and menopause happens to be common due to a decrease in the levels of Estrogen and progesterone. - Your body is undergoing a change and hence, fluctuations in hormone levels can cause mood swings. - However, if your mood swings are getting difficult for you to handle, then, see a doctor, and get necessary blood tests done, if needed. - Also, start by focussing on your diet, getting some movement daily, and also try yoga and meditation ✨✨ I hope this helps.

my periods are delayed by 3 months and i m not pregnant any remedy to get periods
Hi there, I hope you are well. If you're periods have been delayed for 3 months, then, it must be a hormonal imbalance. - Please see a gynecologist immediately and get the necessary tests done. You may need to get your thyroid, hormonal tests, as well as Vitamin D, Vitamin B12 levels tested. - Kindly don't delay. - What is your weight, height, and do you have family history of health issues? Do let me know:) Take care.

I am getting rashes from pads. What can I do to stop them?
If you have noticed rashes with one pad brand, it maybe helpful to try another. Another reason could also be using the pad for extended periods of time, which makes you more prone to rashes. Alternatives can include period panties or cloth pads which can help prevent rashes and are also eco-friendly as they are reusable. During your periods opt for loose cotton underwear and change it twice a day to limit sweat and rashes. If this doesn't subside with these simple changes, check in with a doctor to understand a possible underlying cause.

Keep the affected area clean and dry, you can also apply a soothing cream or ointment that you can purchase over the counter. Ensure you're changing pads frequently to help prevent sanitary pad rash.

My boyfriend wants to have sex with me but I am on my periods. Can we do it??
In ancient times, it was said that a couple should not have sex during periods when woman is on her period. But From a modern medical point of view, sexual intercourse during menstruation is normal and not perversion. But it can be associated, although remotely, with undesirable pregnancy, the development of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and possible endometriosis. To avoid pregnancy/infection one can use condom while doing it. But regularly indulging in period sex can be cause of retrograde menstruation and it can carry fresh pieces of endometrium which can get implantated outside uterus like on ovaries, uterine ligaments or even rectum. This is endometriosis. So take this into consideration.
Yes you can absolutely do it! Infact, periods can make sex more pleasureable too as period blood is a natural lubricant! Just make sure you are being safe: using protection if you are not planning a pregnancy and to remain safe from STIs as well. Proper communication and consent are important!

#PeriodTalk We all know from common knowledge that an ideal period lasts between 3-5 days. However, for some women periods can last for 7 days throughout their lives. This doesn't indicate that something is wrong. The ideal period length is the average you have for each period. A normal period day would be using 3-5 pads, or changing out your cup 3-4 times a day. More on the first couple of days when periods are usually heavier. If you have to use more than 5-7 pads during all days of your period and feel increasing fatigue it would be ideal to get it checked to ensure there is no cause for heavy bleeding and you don't have anemia as a result.

I am a mother and an educator in charter schools and ABC Youth Foundation. I host several podcast it's a huge passion of mine and I also produce I strongly feel that empathy is the glue of humanity and without it what do we have for understanding one another and being kind toward one another is what keeps Us human it's what makes it work and without it what can possibly get better you must hold on to that and remember and show it where it's needed so that people can know what it is and be able to show that same to others connecting and growing with others is within the foundations of empathy that's how the world gets better so we can understand we don't have to directly know one another we must be that change and it starts with us, we must be the change we want to see!more
