I am glad that your delivery was uneventful and both the baby and you are doing well now.

Please wait for some time, do not hurry.

arq-e-mehzal is a herbal product having laxative action on the intestines. I would personally not suggest you this, as it is laxative. It can trigger a contraction in the intestines any time and trigger a contraction in the uterus. A fatal adverse effect could be uterine rupture.

Moreover, there are no clinically proven studies on these herbal supplements and their use in weight loss.

Better not to take risk with these.

I wish you recover soon from the post peuparial period. Try doing regular exercise and follow a healthy diet.

You should be able to lose weight with these.

All the best.
