Dear Lybrate user. You can use coconut oil as lubricant while penetration. There is no health problems or other problems. But, you should attempt for foreplay for atleast 15 minutes before starting the penetration. This helps in secretion of natural lubrication from the vagina. Take care.

Hello everyone. I am hitting gym at morning and I am taking 5 boiled egg whites with 500ml milk as post workout meal but I am baffled about pre workout meal, currently I am using 2 bananas. Please suggest me a PRE WORKOUT MEAL FOR MAXIMUM MUSCLE GROWTH.

Hello everyone. I am hitting gym at morning and I am taking 5 boiled egg whites with 500ml milk as post workout meal ...
Hye. Thanks for the query. Plan on eating 30 minutes to two hours before working out, depending the time of workout and on how large a meal you have. This is important because you want the energy from the meal you just ate without it sitting heavy in your stomach while you are working out. A high-carbohydrate, low-fat meal that has a moderate amount of protein is easy to digest and will help you maintain your blood sugar. Examples of a great pre-workout meal include potato/ fruit, an egg whites and a piece or a fruit smoothie or a fruit yoghurt which has just the right amount of carbohydrates and protein.

I am 21 year old male and I am suffering from TB from 1 and a half month . I am addicted in drinking and smoking but I had left when I heard of TB in me. Can I drink alcohol once in 2 month because of habit.

MD - Pulmonary Medicine, fellowship in interventional pulmonology
Pulmonologist, Rajkot
Hi lybrate-user, see as you have left smoking & drinking, then it is not habit for you. It is very nice that you could have stopped it. But you should take advantage of it by not restarting it. See, once in 2 month will not harm you, but habit starts from there only.

I have been found diabetic from one year. I consulted a MD and he prescribed metformin+ glimepiride tabs. After two months he prescribed only metformin SR 500. From then I am using them. After first report I never go beyond fasting 110 and PP 130 in several tests. I quit sweet taste from a year. My question is can I consume any fruit in some small quantity?

Hello, Yes you can have results in fact high fiber content fruits will help you manage your blood sugar levels better. Tea can be taken by cutting down half amount of sugar, which you generally use. Add ginger, mint, cardamon to your tea, to compensate on the taste of sweet tea.

Doctor. May STD or STi is catch us through the oral sex. How I recognize this. And how we get treated.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
There isn’t any one time frame where all STDs and HIV should up, therefore, there isn’t a simple answer to this question. If you have had oral sex and are worried about an STD or HIV, you should get tested 1 to 2 weeks after and again 90 days later. This is because different STDs are detected at different times: Chlamydia - anytime from 1 week to 3 weeks Gonorrhea - anytime from 2 days to 30 Syphilis - anytime from 10 days to 3 months Herpes – anytime from 2 weeks to 3 months Hepatitis B – anytime from 3 weeks to 2 months Hepatitis C – anytime up to 6 months HIV – anytime from 4 weeks to 3 months Once you get tested, you should abstain from sex with anyone until you have received the results. Treatment depends on the results.

You must consult your diabetologist. Numbness is caused due to uncontrolled diabetes due to neuropathy. Good control mostly reverses these symptoms. It is not possible to give medicines with examination & full assessment.

Hello, I am suffering from piles after my first delivery. 4 years are passed with this problem. I am taking honey at early morning. Is this safe or not. Please guide me.

MBBS
General Physician, Faridabad
taking honey is safe, you can try, In the majority of cases, piles resolve on their own without the need for any treatment. Treatments can help significantly reduce the discomfort and itching that many patients experience Diet - piles can be caused by too much straining when doing bowel movements, which is the result of constipation. A change in diet can help keep the stools regular and soft. This involves eating more fiber, such as fruit and vegetables, or switching your cereal breakfast to bran. Water is the best drink, and the patient may be advised to increase his/her water consumption. Some experts say too much caffeine is not good. Body weight - if the patient is obese, losing weight may help reduce the incidence and severity of hemorrhoids. Simple things you can do yourself to help prevent piles: Try not to strain when you go to the toilet Avoid laxatives Exercis take tab pilex 1tab tds, anovate cream locally inside anus, siltz bath [hot water in a tub, add kmno4 in it, sit 1/2 an hr in tub, it will help.Avoid spicy ,Drink 3- 4 Litre of Water Daily. welcome for further help. or go for surgery

Coconut at times increases acidity whereas coconut water reduces acidity .what is your opinion on that .
Tender coconut water is a fruit. It is alkaline so neutralises the acid in stomach. Avoid foods which cause acidity, have small frequent meals, drink plenty of water but not with meal, do not lie down immediately after a meal.
