I need some more details from you to guide you effectively, like weight, height, waist circumference and level of activity (exercising). You have also not mentioned sugar levels and hba1c also. I need them to guide you. Still a few things I want you to follow 1) do regular pranayama, if you know the details or learn it 2) do certain yoga asanas like manduk asana, pawanmuktasana etc. 3) increase consumption of fiber in your diet by using fenugreek seeds, more green salads. I await your reply.

Dear Lybrate user. Physically cigarette will be more problematic. But if you take mental effects, all three are equally dangerous. Take care.

If this is the first episode of urine infection, then you don't need to worry much, in the form of protection, etc. If its happening repeatedly, you need evaluation in the form of partner evaluation (whether he is the source), presence of constipation, diabetes, etc. In that case you need to take care of what is called" post-coital prophylaxis" that is care after sexual intercourse, like local wash, urination, and antibiotics in severe cases.

Masturbation is regarded as a normal, healthy sexual activity. In general, the medical community considers masturbation to be a natural and harmless expression of sexuality for both men and women. It does not cause any physical injury or harm to the body, and can be performed in moderation throughout a person's lifetime as a part of normal sexual behavior. It will not affect you or your ability to have children in the future. If you wish to reduce the frequency of masturbation: It originates from brain, due to thinking about sex. Hence: ·     Do not watch adult material. ·     Concentrate more on your studies or work. ·     Exercise regularly. Kindly get your semen analysis done and revert.

My penis is bent right when erected, please suggest me how naturally I can make it straight.
Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Penis curved towards right or left or downward is always normal and this can be seen with majority of people. This mostly happen due to masturbation. People who use right hand for masturbation, their penis will be curved to the left and the opposite with left handlers. There are other reasons too. This phenomenon is quite normal and there is nothing to worry. In fact, curved penis will give you more pleasure when you engage in vaginal intercourse than straight penis simply because curvature provides more friction. Enjoy your curve. I suggest online sex education. Take care.
