Does teenage pregnancy lead to early menopause?

Women may reach early menopause for a myriad of reasons. The reasons for this can vary from genetically inheriting this condition, diseases like cancer, premature ovarian failure (POF), Turner's Syndrome and surgeries like  hysterectomy. Besides these, some uncommon reasons that increase the risk of early menopause are reaching menarche before the age of 12 and being childless, precocious puberty or early puberty - all of  which I have shared in the post "Mother's obesity may cause early puberty in daughters". A more recent study has also found that being underweight is a risk factor for early menopause. Interestingly, certain foods could also hasten menopause.

10 Cornstarch homemade beauty recipes

Cornstarch, or cornflour (makkai ka atta), is the starch of the maize grain, commonly known as corn. According to Dee Anna Glaser, MD, associate professor of dermatology at St. Louis University school of medicine, Cornstarch is one of the best home remedies to prevent irritated skin, as it relieves chafing by forming a protective absorbent layer between you and the outside world. With less friction, the irritation lessens when the skin rubs against itself or something else. Dr Glaser further says that you can also reduce the amount of moisture that normally develops over the course of a day by sprinkling odor-prone areas with cornstarch.

Drinking too much milk bad for bones?

Bones constantly take up and release calcium throughout life – in both, men and women. However, post-menopausal women are more susceptible to osteoporosis or brittle-bone disease because declining estrogen levels impair the skeleton’s calcium retaining ability. So the most common advice offered to women is to eat plenty of calcium-rich food, particularly, milk and milk-products.

Can dengue fever be transmitted sexually?

May 16th is observed as National Dengue Day in India  to raise awareness about this dreaded mosquito borne disease.  Dengue fever is a viral disease, mostly spread through the bite of mosquitoes, particularly by aedes aegypti mosquito. I have already written an exhaustive post about dengue fever, it's prevention and home-remedies and measures to be followed if one contracts dengue and is recuperating. The post Convalescence - the recovery period after illness might also be helpful for anyone who's recovering from vector  borne diseases such as dengue, chikungunya , malaria or for that matter any other illness also. So do glance through that too.
