Health / Is this Normal Vaginal Discharge? by healthyhealthng: last month on Sun 08 at 10:1 am
A great number of most women are usually confused as to understanding at what point they have normal vaginal discharge or abnormal vaginal discharge. At exactly what point does a discharge become unhealthy for the reproductive system? Keep in mind that vaginal discharge normally works to keep the genital area clean and healthy. However if it looks or smells badly, it might be a symptom of a health problem.

Normal vaginal discharge during menstrual cycle

It’s also important to keep in mind that your menstrual cycle can influence the type of vaginal discharge you’ll have on any particular day . All women produce vaginal discharge during their childbearing years, starting a year or two before puberty and ending after menopause.

However, the colour and thickness of normal vaginal discharge will be different during the menstrual cycle, depending on the levels of oestrogen circulating inside the body. After your menstrual period stops, you’ll have thick, whitish discharge. Around the time of ovulation your normal vaginal discharge will turn clear and also become so stretchy that it can form slim strands or ropes.

Any time your ovary releases an egg in the middle of your menstrual cycle, your body will increase the production of normal vaginal discharge. It’s normal to have 30 times much more vaginal discharge in the middle of the menstrual cycle. The wetness during this time is an indication that you’re ovulating.

After the middle of your menstrual cycle, your vaginal discharge will begin to thicken .When you get towards the end of your menstrual cycle, close to when you start your period you’ll have white discharge again. There’s nothing you can do to reduce the amount of vaginal discharge or change its consistency and you would not want to anyway. This vaginal discharge is your body’s way of flushing out bacteria.

How to know when Vaginal Discharge is not normal

Although vaginal discharge is normal in most cases, in some cases it can signify an infection.

Normal discharge is clear or whitish and doesn’t have awful smell. You ought to be concerned if your vaginal discharge is yellowish, gray, green, has a clumpy texture like cottage cheese, or has an abnormal smell.

Abnormal discharge could indicate any of these conditions:

Vaginosis – Vaginal discharge that is yellowish, green, or gray could indicate vaginosis, which is a bacterial vaginal infection. An additional clue that you may possibly have this kind of infection is your vaginal discharge will have a fishy smell. Learn more:healthyhealthng.com/normal-vaginal-discharge/

Health / Home remedies for snoring by healthyhealthng: last month on Fri 06 at 6:1 am
Snoring might be seen as a song to your ears but believe me it is not to your partner especially when he starts making plans to move to the other room. Snoring can be very humiliating especially when you sleep in someone’s house or even in your own bedroom. It can make one a centre of laughter and it can be very embarrassing. Even though snoring might not be considered as a serious health problem, it is still good to give it a serious attention for the sake of healthy living.There are home remedies for snoring

What causes Snoring?

Alcohol consumption: One of the causes of snoring is excessive intake of alcohol. Alcohol is a sedative substance and when it acts as a relaxant to the muscles in the throat, it can cause snoring. Therefore it is not advisable to take excessive alcohol especially when it is close to bedtime.

Overweight:Being overweight is another cause of snoring. This is because when you are overweight, it is difficult for air to pass through the fatty tissue in the throat and airways and this leads to snoring.

Smoking: Studies have shown that smoking is a major cause of snoring. It has been proven that smokers are more likely to snore than non-smokers. Smoking is known to cause respiratory problems. The respiratory tissues in the airways gets irritated by the smoke being inhaled by the smoker, and this causes the tissues to be inflamed and swollen thereby causing a blockage to the airways and this causes snoring.

Home remedies for snoring

Change your sleeping position:

One of the home remedies for snoring is to change your sleeping position.It is advised that you always change your sleeping position. Always try to prop yourself with one or two pillows. A lot of people have noticed that their snoring reduces when they prop themselves up in the night with pillows. It is also advised that you do not lie on your back, instead sleep by your side. This is because it is easier for one to breathe than when you are lying on your back.

Modifying your life styles:

The ways you live your life presently might be contributing to your snoring habit. For instance, too much eating, drinking of alcohol and smoking. All these are chief contributors to snoring. The Doctor advised that you modify your life style because this is the conservative therapy which is a primary step in curing snoring. For instance, you might not be able to give up alcohols entirely, but you can avoid drinking it especially after dinner or when it is close to bedtime, so that it will not have effect on your sleep or cause snoring.

Nigeria News / Disputed Maritime Varsity land: We’ll sue FG if… —Itsekiri nation by JerryB: 12:0 am On 2 Feb
WARRI—ITSEKIRI nation says it will sue the Federal Government if the law establishing Nigerian Maritime University, NMU, Kurutie, Warri South-West Local Government Area, Delta State, is passed without compensation paid to the Omadino people, the perceived land owners.Chief Edward Ekpoko, Secretary, Itsekiri Leaders of Thought, ILoT, stated this in Warri, yesterday, while briefingVanguardon the wayforward over the ownership dispute of the NMU Okerenkoko temporary site, following the appearances bythe disputing Gbaramatu andItsekiri, claimants to the land,before a public hearing held at the National Assembly on the bill to back the school.Ekpoko, theTolurejuof Warri Kingdom, said: “We are not against the establishment of the university there. All we are saying is that the proper name of the place is Okereghigho, not Okerenkoko. That is how the courts have decided ownership of the land and compensation should be paid to the land owners, the Omadino people.“Litigations in respect of Okereghigho had been concluded to finality. No more appeal. The first was in 1951 in the case between E. E. Cillo from Omadina and Adurokumor on behalf of the people of Bakokodia, what Ijaws today call Kokodiagbene. In the judgement it is Bakokodia, not Kokodiagbene there.The Maritime University, in Okerenkoko, Delta State.“Adurokumor was in Bakokodia but was claiming rent in respect of tenants of Omadino in Okereghigho. Omadino people sued him. Inthe litigation plan, Omadino people said Okereghigho andBakokodia were their lands. And they got judgement against Adurokumor.“When they continued again, Omadino had to go to court again in 1962. They sued James Uloba and two others on behalf of Okereghigho people. The judge even recalled that judgement had already been given in 1951 inrespect of Okereghigho, that plaintiffs didn’t need to cometo court again, but in any case, the court still gave judgement to Cillo and Omadino people again.”On the claim by their Ijaw neighbours that they have a Supreme Court judgement setting aside the Omadino court victory, Ekpoko said that was a deliberate falsehood, adding that the case Ijaws refer to had nothing to do with Okerenghigho and Omadino’s ownership.He said, “The Ijaw people appealed to Supreme Court following the judgement of 1962. That appeal was dismissed on January 31, 1973. They went as far as theWest Africa Court and the Supreme Court then. There must be an end to a litigation. In respect of Okerenghigho, appeal will only come on the day of resurrection. On earth, it is dead, concluded to finality.“The judgement they are harping on in the appeal they got setting aside an earlier judgement in a case betweenUgborodo people and Gbaramatu in respect of another piece of land, Oporoaza area, not Okerenghigho. Okereghigho has been concluded to finality, no more appeal.“The Ugborodo case started in 1970. Ugborodo won at the High Court, then the Court of Appeal said they should send it back for retrial. The Ugborodo people went on appeal to the Supreme Court. Omadino was never mentioned in the matter where they got their said appeal.”

Nigeria News / Wait for four years before judging us- Amaechi by JerryB: 12:0 am On 2 Feb
ILORIN—Minister of Transportation, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, yesterday, said All Progressives Congress, APC,government did not promise to fix Nigeria’s problem within a year and cautioned those lamenting the economic hardship to wait till2019 for the desired change.Also, the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, cautioned Nigerians against making statements that could cause religious disharmony, warning that “nonation has ever survived religious war.”The ministers spoke in Ilorin, Kwara State, during a North Central town hall meeting for the people of Kogi, Niger and Kwara states by the Federal Government.Amaechi, who was the Director General of the Campaign Organisation of President Muhammadu Buhari during the 2015 elections, said though the Federal Government knows that things are difficult, Nigerians should wait till the end of the four-year mandategiven to the administration before they can judge whether the government had performed or not.Rotimi AmaechiAccording to him, “we did notpromise you that those challenges will be solved in one year or you would have given us a one-year mandate. But you gave us four years mandate, so wait till the end of four years before you can conclude thatwe have not done well.”While giving stewardship of his ministry, the minister lamented that the refusal of the National Assembly to approve the government’s borrowing plan from China was drawing the government back, urging the people from the three states to prevail on the National Assembly to approve the loan.According to him, if accessed, the loan would enable the government embark on the rivatalisation of rail projects, which would create more jobs.He said: “Go and talk to your people in the National Assembly. They are the ones holding the Federal Government back from improving on the infrastructure that would provide mass employment for the people by stopping the President’s borrowing plan from China. They are theones frustrating our efforts.”On his stewardship, the Minister of Health, Professor Issac Adewole, said the Federal Government had secured a loan of $500 million to fund the revival of basic health institutions across the country.He explained that N420 million was disbursed to each state in 2015 to fund the project in their respectivestates.Under the scheme, which would provide 1,000 basic health centres as already captured in the budget, the minister said a model health centre is being cited in each of the three senatorial districts of the three states.Other ministers who gave accounts of their stewardship were those of Budget and National Planning, Zainab Ahmed; Water, Sulyman Adamu; Mining and Steel (State), Abubakar Bwauari, and Tradeand Investment, Ayishat Abubakar.
