Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Sexual pleasure for women is internal. It is not like men who ejaculate on climax. Even though women do not experience sexual pleasure, just by ejaculation male semen inside vagina, she can become pregnant and deliver a child. But that is not the case with a man. He needs to ejaculate. In your case, I think, you should learn what is women climax and how to achieve it. I suggest you need sexual education. Take care.

See untreated depression can have harmful effects on both the mother and the baby. But, taking antidepressants while pregnant may increase the risk of problems for the baby.(ssris) and older medications, are generally safe. Birth defects and other problems are possible. But the risk is very low. You need to consult both neurophysician and gynecologist before conception.

My wife is 26 week pregnant. Her 75g glucose tolerant test result is 133. Dr. Said it's border line. It should be below 140. 5.5 kg weight increased in last 2 month (5th & 6th month of pregnancy ). Dr. Prescribed BGR-34 for precaution for Gestational diabetes Is BGR-34 safe in pregnancy? Can blood glucose level control through diet without taking medicine? 140-199 is prediabetes. Is level above 140 considered as a Gestational diabetes?

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. To diagnose Gestational diabetes following criteria are considered: Fasting >92 mg, on 75 g glucose 1 hour level should be >180 mg & 2 hour glucose > 153 mg. The level mentioned 133 mg is at what time after taking 75 g of glucose? Plus the tablet mentioned is an ayurvedic preparation without any clinical studies. I would never give it in pregnancy. First of all whether she has GDM is itself a question mark. I hope you have followed all the details mentioned. Please take care. Thanks.

Coccydynia - Tailbone Pain

Coccydynia - Tailbone Pain

Coccydynia - Tailbone Pain

The back bone or spine is made of a series of bones extending all the way from the neck (cervical) to the tail (coccyx). These joints, like others, are prone to inflammation, sprain and strain, some more than the others. The coccyx in particular is highly prone to inflammation and can lead to localized pain, which is very typical, with the pain in the tailbone. This is known as coccydynia. 

What is coccydynia?

  • Literally, coccydynia translates to tailbone pain.
  • It is characterized by a sharp, localized pain between the buttocks in the tail bone.
  • It is often caused by injury to the pelvic area or the tail bone.
  • Sitting and/or leaning against the buttocks make it worse.
  • Pregnancy, when the additional hormones relax on the pelvic floor, also leads to increased pain of the tailbone.

Diagnosis: 
The pain can be easily confused with other conditions like sciatica, fractured tailbone, tailbone infections like shingles, etc. However, for a trained medical person, the symptoms of tenderness and pain are quite diagnostic. Pilonidal sinus, fistula, pudendal neuralgia is also same as coccydynia and show same symptoms. 

Management:

  • If there is a rash or inflammation, it needs to be evaluated further for additional problems.
  • Where possible, rest completely for a short period of time till the acute phase of pain subsides.
  • In case of injury, ensure there is no repeat injury to the same area.
  • Pain medications are used to relieve pain, where it is severe and intolerable.
  • In severe cases, cortisone injection may be given in the doctor s office. In addition to pain relief, it may even take care of the underlying problem per se.
  • Avoid sitting for prolonged periods where possible.
  • After the acute phase is over, when sitting for prolonged periods, sufficient padding is advised. This could be in the form of pillows or padded seats.
  • Sleeping on the sides is difficult, so sleep straight. If required, take a pillow in the middle.
  • Physiotherapy is also helpful in some people who have repeat attacks. This helps in pain management and controlling acute phases. There are specific tailbone stretches, which should be done under supervision.
  • Walking is one of the many effective ways to keep the tailbone unlocked, which helps in getting rid of the pain and avoiding spasms of the muscles around the tailbone.
  • Best internal manipulation and pain management can be done with coccyx exercise.
  • The time taken for healing of the tailbone depends on whether it is a simple bruise or a severe one. The former would heal completely in about four weeks, while the latter will take about 12 weeks.

Hi lybrate-user, loose cervix means you are high risk to have preterm delivery. Ideally you should share ultrasound report in detail to guide you in best possible way. You should take rest avoid exertion, sex, prolonged standing.

Rarely, a fibroid can cause acute pain when it outgrows its blood supply, and begins to die. ... Intramural fibroids grow within the muscular uterine wall. Submucosal fibroids bulge into the uterine cavity. Subserosal fibroids project to the outside of the uterus.Although intramural fibroids, subserosal, and pedunculated fibroids may cause pain and discomfort, they generally do not affect fertility. However, if a fibroid is inside the uterine cavity (submucosal) or is larger than 6 cm in diameter, then it may impede conception.When women wish to preserve childbearing potential, a myomectomy may be performed. ... Fibroids that are in the wall or outer lining of the uterus (intramural and subserosal fibroids) can be removed either through an abdominal myomectomy or a laparoscopic approach.

5 Reasons Flaxseeds (Alsi Seeds) Are A Superfood To Adopt Right Now!
Flax seeds are a superfood without doubt. They are commonly known as 'Alsi' in Hindi. Also known as linseeds, these are small seeds with enormous benefits. There are two types of flax seeds, brown and golden. The nutritional profiles of these two flaxseeds are very similar. The only exception to this is the yellow flax seed called solin which is very low in omega-3 fatty acids.

3) For Healthy Skin and Hair - A habit of 1 to 2 tbsp of flaxseeds will keep your hair and skin shining with life. The omega-3 fatty acids benefit the hair and skin by providing them the desired fats.

Hello doctor. Its been 4 months, still my wife experiences pain in her vagina when we have sex. What could be the reason. And cure.

DGO, MBBS
Sexologist, Kolkata
She may have tight vagina or vaginismus- the muscles of vagina go into spasm. Give more time to foreplay. It may also be due to infection.
