Immediately remove abscess with surgery. If you don't understand it will spoil your labia and affect your future sexual/married life. Choice is always not possible in health matters. Rigidity will spoil everything.

Hi lybrate-user. Bleeding during pregnancy is not a good sign. Since you previously also had a miscarriage, I would suggest you to avoid sex atleast during the first trimester in this pregnancy. Please get an ultrasound scan done to see for baby's well being, and if all is well, start with progesterone supplements. That will help in stopping the bleeding and stabilising the current pregnancy. All the best.

You didn't specify your date of periods for the month of July anyway you can take tab primolute N twice a day atleast five days before YoY start your periods and then continue for 10 to 15 days according to your need but not more than 15 days once you stop this tab you will have withdrawal bleeding in a weeks time but befor taking the tablets make sure your other physical parameters are normal YoY should get them checked from a doctor

Can misoprostol be taken orally (under the tongue) or it has to be taken vaginally only. Pls suggest Thanks.

BHMS, DEMS

Ask Free Question
The misoprostol tablets can be used in one of three ways: under the tongue, vaginally or buccally (in the space between gum and cheek). All methods are equally effective in causing an abortion. However all the misoprostol must be used in the same way. We strongly advise you to use misoprostol under your tongue. This way, no remains of the pills can be found in the event that you need to go to a hospital.

Please consult a homeopathic doctor for this. Your condition requires a proper consultation. It will take time but you will definitely get results. You can either find a local doctor or you can consult me online.

Can STDs Spread without Having Sex?

M.Sc - Psychology, MS- Sexualty
Sexologist
Ask Free Question

STDs or diseases that spread due to the exchange of bodily fluids and most of them are treatable in nature, but one should get them treated as soon as poosible and should not ignore them as them can turn fatal as well. And, yes STDs can also spread without having sex. Some of the most common way of getting STDs without penetrative intercourse is mentioned below.

The most common way of contracting Sexually transmitted disease without sexual intercourse is:
1. Pucker up: Kissing can also cause STDs. Infections can be transmitted through the saliva if you swap your spit. Diseases like Mononucleosis and STD’s like herpes can be transmitted through kissing. This can cause cold sores and infections in the mouth.

2. Oral sex: If a person has an STD, he or she can easily transmit the disease to their partner by having oral sex. During oral sex, fluids from the genitals can flow to the mouth and vice versa. For example STDs caused by herpes simplex virus 2 can be easily transferred by oral sex. Chlamydia can also be transferred by oral sex. This can cause infections and immense discomfort in your throat. STDs can be prevented by wearing a condom or using a dental dam during oral sex.

3. Contaminated foods: You can also develop STD like Hepatitis A from food which is contaminated. If a person infected with an STD prepares your meal without washing his or her hand after using the restroom, it can easily contaminate your meal thus, transmitting the disease.

4. Touching bases: Skin to skin contact or indirect contact with a person who already has an STD can make you prone to contracting STDs. It can be caused by using an unwashed sex toy with an infected person and also with hand to genital contact.

5. Tanning salons: STDs can be easily spread from person to person by means of a tanning bed. If the surface of the tanning bed is contaminated by someone who has STDs, the risk of developing an STD increases for the next person who ends up using the same bed.

6. Razors and syringes: Sharing a razor or anything which pierces or cuts the skin is an easy and common cause behind contracting an STD. If the razor cuts the skin of an infected person and is contaminated with blood, the next person using that razor can develop STD due to blood contact. The same may be said of a syringe where users share them. Many people, especially drug users shared common syringes which resulted in large scale transmission of HIV.

Combined effect of post surgery pain, discomfort, and full time breast feeding means you are not actively trying for weight reduction. It is common knowledge that you can reduce only with diet control and exercise. Maybe after 6 months you will get more time to think about it.
