I am 54 years Young female and have pain in the heels whenever I get up from bed. Can you give me a solution?
An STD is transmitted by means of physical contact and intercourse. These diseases are caused by parasites, virus or bacteria. Usually, STDs are preventable provided you make the right choices concerning your sexual health. Refraining from sex isn’t a feasible idea at all.
But fortunately there are alternatives too to curb the menace that STDs are:
- Abstain: The most effective way to avoid STIs is to abstain from sex.
- Mutual monogamy: Two people who have sex only with one another don’t have any opportunity to bring a new STD into the relationship. If you and your partner have been tested and are healthy, remaining faithful to each other is a very good way to reduce your chances of contracting an STD.
- Get Vaccinated: One important prevention tool against STIs is vaccination. Currently, vaccines are available to protect against infection with HPV, hepatitis A and hepatitis B. Talk to a healthcare provider to see which vaccines might be recommended for you.
- Protect Yourself: Condoms work really well in stopping most STIs from being passed from an infected partner to another when they are used consistently and correctly every time a person has oral, vaginal or anal sex. Consistently and correctly means that a person makes sure they use a condom every time they have oral, vaginal or anal sex and put it on and use it the right way.
- Avoid alcohol and drug use: Avoiding alcohol and recreational drug use reduce the risk of contracting an STI, having an unwanted pregnancy, or being coerced to have sex. Alcohol and drug use can reduce our ability to make good decisions. It may also make us more likely to be talked into participating in an activity without being able to give our full consent.
Coping and Support
It's traumatic to find out you have an STI. You might be angry if you feel you've been betrayed or ashamed if there's a chance you infected others. At worst, an STI can cause chronic illness and death, even with the best care in the world.
Between those extremes is a host of other potential losses trust between partners, plans to have children, and the joyful embrace of your sexuality and its expression. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Sexologist.

Women's Health and Continence Physiotherapists specialize in the function of the pelvic floor - a sling of muscles between the legs.
The Pelvic floor reaches from side to side across the floor of the pelvis and is attached to the pubic bone in front, and to the coccyx (the tail end of the spine) behind. It forms our undercarriage and serves to hold our pelvic and abdominal contents up and in.
The pelvic floor can be weakened during pregnancy, childbirth and with aging. Whilst we all have a pelvic floor the majority of problems occur in women with the most common problem being incontinence. Nevertheless men suffering from incontinence (usually post-prostatectomy) and even erectile dysfunction can be helped by physiotherapists who specialise in the pelvic floor.
The openings from the bladder (urethra), bowels (rectum) and womb (vagina) all pass through the pelvic floor, so it is easy to understand how a problem in this area can lead to a range of debilitating conditions such as
Stress and urge incontinence
Pelvic organ prolapse (bladder, uterus or bowel)
Pelvic pain syndromes (vulvodynia, vestibulitis, vaginismus)
Bowel disorders (irritable bowel, constipation)
Women's Health and Continence Physiotherapist (Dr Komal Kakkar) can assess these problems and advise on the correct exercises to improve your condition

Pelvic Floor Fitness Test
In just 30 minutes our Women's Health & Continence Physiotherapists can assess your pelvic floor. This non-invasive screening test could change your world.
Physical or visual examination of the pelvic floor is not always required. The function of the pelvic floor can often be satisfactorily assessed by real time ultrasound, allowing both the therapist and patient to see its function, during assessment and as a biofeedback tool during retraining.
If you feel that no one can help or guide you in channelising your desires, you are wrong. A relationship is subject to a lot of misunderstandings, especially when the sex life is disturbed or fading. Most people tend to keep quiet about such issues instead of seeking help. A sexologist is a therapist who specialises in sexual problems and knows how to deal with them. Here are the top reasons why you should consider visiting a sexologist:
- If you have low sex drive, you are bound to avoid physical intimacy with your partner. This might happen because of various reasons, such as hormonal changes, certain medications, stress, and fatigue. If you low sex drive has become a persistent problem in your life, you should consult a sexologist about it.
- If you experience intense sexual behaviour, urges and fantasies which involve strange objects, situations and activities, it is a genuine problem. It is likely to be associated with some psychological issue. This may lead to great distress in your social, personal and occupational life. Visiting a sexologist is very important during such situations.
- There are several physiological problems which may lower your sex drive or may disable you to perform in bed. In men, disorders such as erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation and the inability to penetrate in spite of having an erection are common. Although these can be treated with medicines, visiting a sexologist will help you know about the condition and the different treatment modes available. Such problems in women include vaginal dryness, dyspareunia vaginal trauma or vaginismus.
- When your sexual needs and desires do not match with that of your partner’s, problems and issues are likely to surface. One of you may suffer from low sex drive as well. As a couple, it is important to communicate with each other and visit a sexologist.
- If you are obsessed and preoccupied with sexual thoughts all the time and your performance and functioning are being affected, a psychological issue is indicated. This needs immediate treatment and hence, you must visit a sexologist.
- It may be possible for you to feel guilty about having sex. This may happen on the account of a bad sexual experience in the past, such as being a victim of child abuse. You can solve the problem by talking it out with a sexologist.
You should also visit a sexologist if you are unable to achieve orgasms. This is more common in women than men. Ejaculation and orgasm are associated with each other. If you cannot attain an orgasm in spite of having a sex drive, you should be concerned and seek medical opinion.
