Q. What is the minimum pregnancy months required for birth? I have heard that people have been giving births at 7th and 6th months of pregnancy, what are the side effects?

A. 24 week. Before that the fetus has no surfactant in his lungs and they’ll collapse right away. He wouldn’t be able to breath and there is no way to keep him alive. after the 24 weeks they can give him steroids that stimulates the excretion of the surfactant to the lungs.

Q. I want to lose minimum 10 kilograms in 2 month. What type of diet, exercise should I choose to achieve it? I have my farewell party after two months and I want to lose minimum 10 kilograms within this period. I don’t want to diet unnecessarily and lose on my health without any knowledge in dieting. I have to make it fast this time as I have already missed two months. What type of diet and exercise should I choose to achieve my desired result?

A. I cannot say much about exercises but you can start with cabbage soup diet before choosing any exercise and diet plan. This is a good and a quick way to lose weight. After a week of cabbage diet you must stop it and follow a balanced diet for a week with cabbage soup diet. You can start your exercise during the mid of this week. By another week you can stop the cabbage diet and carry on with the balanced diet and exercise. I have tried this way and it did help me in losing weight.
