Hello- Fungal infection is the sign of decreased immunity, moreover you have further taken heavy antibiotics for your treatment, this all reduces the vitality of the fertile tissue of the uterus. I suggest you to start Basti Panchakarma of ayurveda if you want to concieve without wasting any time.

I am 20years old. I had a cyst on my left ovary (8.3cm). It was removed by micro surgery. Now I am well. And there is no pain and my period is normal. My question is, can it occur again? What should I do to prevent it?

Diploma in homeopathy, B. Sc

I can certainly occur again as you have not removed the root cause of why it happened in the first place. Take thuja 200 six drops twice daily for a long time. Also have bio-chem tabs - 4 tabs daily for 6 months.

What time is best for having sex? How many time one do sex in order to make a baby?

What time is best for having sex? How many time one do sex in order to make a baby?
To get pregnant you need to have regular sex i. E. 3-4 times a week for one full year before you start seeking medical help. If you want to make her pregnant fast then you can follow this calender method. If a women’s menstrual cycle varies from 26days to 31days cycle, The shortest cycle (26 days) minus 18 days = 8th day. The longest cycle (31 days) minus 10 days=21st day Thus, 8th to 21st day of each cycle counting from first day of menstrual period is considered as fertile period.

Hello, after using meprate periods may be anytime from 2 to 10 days after stoppage of medication. So please wait for sometime. If you have this problem of irregular periods frequently then you need to take medication to regularise the periods but if it has just happened once you need not take any treatment. Good luck.

Hi, if you don't want pregnancy now, birth control pills are better option than condoms as failure rate is higher with condom than pills.

There might not be any particular reason for your bleeding. It can also be your usual menstrual cycle. Many times, cycle changes after the girl becomes sexually active. The changes can either lead to earlier menstruation or delayed menstruation. There is nothing to be worried about it.

Hi, congratulations for pregnancy. You can eat whatever you like except pinapple and papaya. If you are experiencing morning sickness then you need to eat dry diet like khakra, biscuits, rusks etc. Dry fruits also you can have. After completing three months you can have 2 dates, 2 walnuts, 4 almonds etc. This helps a lot. Consult a dietician near by you for more details. All the best and have a great time ahead.

Sexual Disorders

MBBS, PGC IN FAMILY WELFARE &HEALTH MANAGEMENT, DHA, PGD IN MEDICAL LAWS ÐICS
General Physician, Kolkata
Sexual Disorders
I find lots of queries in lybrate on the subject, mostly from men, few from women. Earlier notion of women being passive partner does not hold good any more. With women emancipation, they are equally demanding, physically. And emotionally.
I will restrict myself to heterosexual functioning e. G impotence and frigidity.
Sexual disability in men may take various forms-1) absence of sexual desire for the sexual partner or absence of libido in general;
2) inability to procure erection
3) inability to sustain erection
4 inability to ejaculate in spite of well sustained erection;
5) premature ejaculation.
Common causes-
1) mostly psychogenic, anxiety for performance failure and haste;
2) uncontrolled diabetes;
3) some blood pressure lowering drugs
4) psychiatric treatment
Anxiety due any cause, masturbation anxiety is possibly quite a common factor, but any form of anxiety or depression can cause impotence.
Some men subconsciously identify their sexual partner with their mother or sister and incest taboo asserts itself and they are impotent with their wives but may be potent with other sexual partners.
Other men associate the sex act with aggression and violence.
Ejaculatory impotence is much rarer.
Another type is the professional man" s impotence. They simply burn out due to their work load and odd working hours.
Disturbances in women may be-
1) frigidity
2) vaginismus (involuntary spasm of vaginal muscles, always psychogenic)
3) dyspareunia.
Frigidity is lack of sexual feeling in women and may vary from
An intense feeling of revulsion to any sexual advance to varying sexual arousal without orgasm.
Causes-
1) anatomical defects;
2) physiological deficiency in endocrine glands;
3) lacked sexual instructions from parents
4) husband" s ignorance of sex technique
5) painful intercourse (dyspareunia)
6) physiological during lactation
7) psychological-fears of pregnancy, inadequate stimulation, premature ejaculation, depression and anxiety.
Treatment-
Both drug and non drug therapies are available, strictly under
Medical supervision.
Suitable age group 20 to 60 yrs.
Contraindications-heart, liver, kidney disorders

My husband just touched his penis outside my vagina is there any chance of getting pregnant?
If no contact with liquids no chance. But if precum was there it is better to take emergency contraceptive pill. To avoid unwanted pregnancy.
