There is no risk if you had sex with condom and urinary retention is due to uterus pressing on the bladder neck and is not a serious issue and is common . Not due to STD as you asked

It is more likely that her periods are messed up because of the pills she has taken. I would advice she does a urine pregnancy test if her periods fail to come in 10 days time. In the meantime however it is best to avoid any further unprotected intercourse.

The types of sexual disorders are-

  1. Disorders related to orgasm: These disorders are related to the inability to orgasm or climax.
  2. Desire disorders: Lack of desire to engage in sexual intercourse

Hi there ~ although you have answered all the yes/no questions that are standard for the question type that you want to ask there are many things that are missing that need to be screened, for example sexual preference. You have indicated that you want to ask a hypothetical question of" if" you get intimate with a married woman - which is immoral and probably against the law and" if" you got intimate with a gay - which raises the question of whether you are homosexual or bisexual. Do you have a baseline hiv screen done and when was it. It seems like you have multiple partners, please tell me more about that since it is a high risk sexual activity. If you need information about any of the fears that you may have regarding sexual activity I recommend that you text, call or webchat with me privately on lybrate. One thing for sure is that you should always have protected sex when in doubt. I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!

Back pain that is associated with day time sedentary jobs like computer professional s are associated with paraspinal muscle spasms. The best way to tackle this sort of pain is to do well spaced stretching exercises of the back, back extension exercises, using hot water bags to provide relief and avoiding stooping posture while sitting. Posture also plays a very important part in back pain, always maintain a straight posture while sitting. While getting up from the bed try to first go on your left or right side of the body and get up side ways. Avoid cruntches or sit-ups: they may increase the pressure on your back and may predispose to slip disc. Always maintain a healthy lifestyle in terms of regular brisk walking, meditation, eating healthy. P. S: try to avoid pain killers (analgesics) as much as possible as many are associated with side effects that you may not be aware of. Stay healthy. Stay happy god bless you.

Fifth Disease "Slapped Cheek Syndrome" And Homeopathy

Fifth disease also known as slapped cheek syndrome is a mild and common illness in children that is caused by a virus called human parvovirus b19.
The medical name for fifth disease is" erythema infectiosum (ei).

Symptoms and signs include a rash as if the face has been slapped. In north america, the disease has been referred to as slapped cheek syndrome or as" slapcheek. Parvovirus infection is a common and highly contagious childhood ailment. It was one of five common childhood illnesses characterized by a rash and therefore named" fifth disease.
The name fifth disease comes from a classification system developed in the 1890's but it is no longer used. It was the fifth in a list of the five most common rashes of childhood and acquired this name.

This infection occurs primarily in school-aged children between 5 and 14 years of age during winter and spring. In most children, parvovirus infection is mild and requires little treatment.

The virus is thought to spread via droplets in the air as respiratory secretions transmitted by coughs and sneezesor by blood from other infected people. Early during the illness, nasal secretions contain the viral dna. Blood has been found to contain viral particles as well as dna.

Cases of fifth disease can occur either sporadically or as part of community outbreaks.

Outbreaks occur mainly in elementary schools during the spring.

Half of the cases occur from spread of the virus to others in the patient's household. Transmission of the infection in schools is less common.


About 10% or fewer of young children are immune.

People with this illness are contagious before the onset of symptoms and are probably not contagious after they develop the rash.

The incubation period (the time from acquiring the infection to the development of symptoms) usually lasts between 4 and 21 days.

Homeopathic remedies for fifth disease - slapped cheek syndrome

Apis, belladona, chamomilla, calendula, sulphur, urtica urens etc.

To find out the right medicine consult a homeopath.

Govardhan Puja - How Cow Dung is Beneficial for Your Health?

Govardhan Puja - How Cow Dung is Beneficial for Your Health?

The fourth day of Diwali is celebrated as Annakut to thank God for his benevolence. Govardhan Puja is one of the primary rituals associated with this day. The legend behind this festival is centred around a hillock named Govardhan which Krishna lifted to shelter the people living there from torrential rains. Thus, it is celebrated by making small mounds of cow dung that symbolize the hillock and prayers to Lord Govardhan.  Cow dung in India is not treated as mere excrement, but has a number of uses. Primary amongst them is the burning of dried cow dung cakes as fuel to cook food in rural households and provide heat. Cow dung is also an excellent fertilizer. In many places, cow dung is also added to mud bricks so as to strengthen the brick and prevent disintegration. 
  
According to Ayurveda, cow dung is germicidal and has healing properties. To this effect, cow dung is mentioned a number of times in ancient Indian scriptures. 
1. Cow dung’s antibacterial properties make it a good natural disinfectant. Using cow dung to disinfect an area involves coating the floor with a paste of fresh cow dung. This practice is followed in many rural households throughout India. Burning cakes of dried cow dung are also said to repel insects and mosquitoes. 
2. Cow dung is also said to have mood enhancing properties. It contains bacteria named Mycobacterium vaccae which is responsible for activating neurons that produce serotonin. Seratonin is a neurotransmitter that contributes towards making a person feel happy. 
3. Dried cow dung is also used to make disinfectant soaps. Some of the ayurvedic practitioners also use cow dung to treat skin ailments. However, you must keep in mind that cow dung does contain bacteria and hence should not be applied on skin that is cut or raw. 
4. Even the ash produced by cow dung has beneficial uses. This ash when added to pond water is also said to balance the acidity in the water and regulate pH levels. Dry ash absorbs oil and fat and hence is also used as a cleaning agent. 

Here are some other medicinal uses of cow dung: 
1. According to some ancient scripts, cow dung ash can be used to strengthen gums and clean teeth. 
2. Cow dung is an excellent disinfectant and mosquito repellent. This is the reason why the walls of the houses were coated with cow dung in the ancient times. 
3. The cow dung can be used a body back in order to detoxify the body. 
4. It is also said to be very helpful in preventing pimples. 
5. Cow dung is also known to improve blood circulation. 
6. It also helps in keeping the infections from spreading. 
7. Ayurvedic medicines made out of cow dung also work wonders in treating indigestion problems. 

However, if one chooses to use cow dung to treat an ailment or cleanse the body in any way, it should be done only under the supervision of an Ayurvedic doctor.

Hello- Vaginal discharge is made of natural fluids and cells produced by the body and this is usually clear and similar in character to mucus at mid-cycle or during ovulation. During sexual arousal and intercourse, vaginal secretion increases to provide lubrication. If secretion is itchy in nature, it might be due to a bacterial infection or an allergic response to any contraceptive /artificial measure used during sex.

Different Types of Laser Hair Removal Methods

Different Types of Laser Hair Removal Methods

Are you fed up of tweezing, shaving or waxing the unwanted hair, then laser hair removal is the right option for you. Unwanted hair removal from different parts of the body is not only time consuming, but is also a very boring chore, which needs to be carried out on regular intervals. On top of it, the process is accompanied with the worry of bruising skin and often resulting in patches. With laser hair removal, the process has become easier and hassle free.

As per the laser hair removal process, a laser beam hits the individual hair follicle after passing through the skin. The intense heat of the laser damages the hair follicle, which inhibits future hair growth. Laser hair removal effectively slows hair growth and typically takes multiple laser hair removal sessions to completely get rid of the unwanted hair. The laser hair removal is most opted for areas such as female facial hair, bikini line hair and back hair for men. The process is most suited for people with light skin and dark hair.

Laser hair removal therapy has been classified in five methods. Although they are all different, but they function on one same principle of converting light to heat producing effect of laser. Lasers can selectively target dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. The process does not require any recovery time which allows one to return to work immediately.

  1. Ruby Laser Hair Removal was the first cosmetic laser hair removal system. The wavelength of this laser is 694 nm. The laser damages the hair follicles keeping surrounding tissues and structures in the skin safe. It gives long term hair free results and any hair regrowth is thinner, finer and patchier than previous growth. The built-in cooling system continuously cools the skin and is least painful in comparisons with other laser hair removal systems. It can be used on small areas of skin and slow laser repetition rate resulting in better and long treatment times.
  2. Alexandrite Laser Hair Removal works in a similar manner as the Ruby Laser hair removal system. The wavelength used in this system is 755 nm, which is in the red infrared part of the light spectrum. It is the fastest available laser hair removal treatments. It has excellent penetration rate and can cover large areas of skin. It also work great on albino skin and freckled skin, on which many other laser hair removal systems are ineffective. It is effective on skin with white to olive tones with thinner hair types. It is not suitable for dark skin as the skin pigment can change.
  3. Diode Laser Hair Removal are made up of diodes or semiconductors operating at wavelength of 800 - 810nm. It can be used effectively darker skin coupled with thick, coarse hair making it popular with men due to its effectiveness on back and chest hair. It is the next most useful hair removal light source and the most promising laser for hair removal. The Diode laser features a longer wavelength and thus able to provide better results among dark-skinned people. This laser provides safer and deeper penetration into the skin layer. Large areas of the body tend to recover faster.
  4. Nd:YAG Laser Hair Removal is the most advanced type of laser hair removal system. It works at wavelengths of 1064 nm in a double frequency mode, which creates green light at 532nm wavelengths. It is effective on all skin types, including Asian and dark skin tones. It has a fast rate of repetition and can be used on larger areas of skin.
  5. IPL or Intense Pulse Light Hair Removal system is a non-coherent laser. It is flexible than laser hair removal, as there is no set laser wavelength. For this treatment parameters are set to suit one's individual needs, giving one a personalised treatment. It can cover large areas of skin and has smaller risk of damaging surrounding tissues.

If you wish to discuss about any specific skin or hair related problem, you can consult a specilized dermatologist and ask a free question.
