It is difficult to predict chances of pregnancy without knowing the date of last periods. However, pregnancy cannot occur just with foreplay, it needs penetration and ejaculation of semen within female vagina. The delay in periods may be due to sm hormonal problem.

Low sex drive in women
A woman's sexual desires naturally fluctuate over the years. Highs and lows commonly coincide with the beginning or end of a relationship or with major life changes, such as pregnancy, menopause or illness. Some antidepressants and anti-seizure medications also can cause low sex drive in women.
If you have a persistent or recurrent lack of interest in sex that causes you personal distress, you may have hypoactive sexual desire disorder.
But you don't have to meet this medical definition to seek help. If you are bothered by a low sex drive or decreased sex drive, there are lifestyle changes and sex techniques that may put you in the mood more often. Some medications may offer promise as well.
Symptom
If you want to have sex less often than your partner does, neither one of you is necessarily outside the norm for people at your stage in life — although your differences may cause distress.
Similarly, even if your sex drive is weaker than it once was, your relationship may be stronger than ever. Bottom line: There is no magic number to define low sex drive. It varies from woman to woman.
Some signs and symptoms that may indicate a low sex drive include a woman who:
Has no interest in any type of sexual activity, including masturbation Doesn't have sexual fantasies or thoughts, or only seldom has them is bothered by her lack of sexual activity or fantasies

Causes
A woman's desire for sex is based on a complex interaction of many components affecting intimacy, including physical well-being, emotional well-being, experiences, beliefs, lifestyle and current relationship. If you're experiencing a problem in any of these areas, it can affect your sexual desire.

Physical causes
A wide range of illnesses, physical changes and medications can cause a low sex drive, including:
Sexual problems. If you experience pain during sex or an inability to orgasm, it can hamper your desire for sex.Medical diseases. Numerous nonsexual diseases can also affect desire for sex, including arthritis, cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, coronary artery disease and neurological diseases.Medications. Many prescription medications — including some antidepressants and anti-seizure medications — are notorious libido killers.Lifestyle habits. A glass of wine may make you feel amorous, but too much alcohol can spoil your sex drive; the same is true of street drugs. And smoking decreases blood flow, which may dampen arousal.Surgery. Any surgery related to your breasts or your genital tract can affect your body image, sexual function and desire for sex.Fatigue. Exhaustion from caring for young children or aging parents can contribute to low sex drive. Fatigue from illness or surgery also can play a role in a low sex drive.

Hormone changes
Changes in your hormone levels may alter your desire for sex. This can occur during:
Menopause. Estrogen levels drop during the transition to menopause. This can cause
decreased interest in sex and dryer vaginal tissues, resulting in painful or uncomfortable sex.
At the same time, women may also experience a decrease in testosterone — a hormone that boosts sex drive in men and women alike —which may lead to decreased libido. Although many women continue to have satisfying sex during menopause and beyond, some women experience a lagging libido during this hormonal change.
Pregnancy and breast-feeding.Hormone changes during pregnancy, just after having a baby and during breast-feeding can put a damper on sex drive. Of course, hormones aren't the only factor affecting intimacy during these times. Fatigue, changes in body image, and the pressures of pregnancy or caring for a new baby can all contribute to changes in your sexual desire.
Psychological causes
Your problems don't have to be physical or biological to be real. There are many psychological causes of low sex drive, including:
Mental health problems, such as anxiety or depressionStress, such as financial stress or work stressPoor body imageLow self-esteemHistory of physical or sexual abusePrevious negative sexual experiences

Relationship issues
For many women, emotional closeness is an essential prelude to sexual intimacy. So problems in your relationship can be a major factor in low sex drive. Decreased interest in sex is often a result of ongoing issues, such as:
Lack of connection with your partnerUnresolved conflicts or fightsPoor communication
of sexual needs and preferencesInfidelity or breach of trust

Tests and diagnosis
By definition, you may be diagnosed with hypoactive sexual desire disorder if you frequently lack sexual thoughts or desire, and the absence of these feelings causes you personal distress. Whether you fit this medical diagnosis or not, your doctor can look for reasons that your sex drive isn't as high as you'd like and find ways to help.

In addition to asking you questions about your medical history, your doctor may also:
Perform a pelvic exam. During a pelvic exam, your doctor can check for signs of physical changes contributing to low sexual desire, such as thinning of your genital tissues, vaginal dryness or pain-triggering spots.
Recommend testing. Your doctor may order blood tests to check hormone levels and
look for evidence of thyroid problems, diabetes, high cholesterol and liver disorders.
Thank you

No. Virginity cannot be lost by masturbation. Besides sexual intercourse, the hymen can break through, athletic activity, tampon use, or even strenuous play.

One of my friends is suffering from breast cancer and it is said that intense pain is there. How can we be away from cancer?

MBBS, MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Hyderabad
If the question is for your friend I would say that cancer has advanced to a state where it is involving chest wall thereby nerves. She requires palliative therapy. If you want to know for yourself, my reply is let breast be allowed to function for the purpose god created it for, i. E feed new born with your milk, maintain good hygiene while lactating, learn how to self examine breaths standing before a mirror, approach a surgeon or a gynecologist if in doubt if you notice swelling in breast, bleeding from nipples, or any abnormal discharge from nipple, look into both axillea for any swellings. When you visit a doctor give clear history about your age at menarche, no. Of children, lactating history, menstrual history, family history especially if your mother or sisters have any breast disease or cancer. My suggestion; when in doubt approach doctor right away, don't postpone. Thanks.

Hi it may be normal or any hormonal irregularities. Or may be due to some problems in your uterine linings. It must be clear once you take intra uterine ct scan or similar tests and some blood test. Before such test I need little more detailing of your problem.

If menses r irregular since long then it should be investigated properly. Ultrasound, fsh, lh, tsh and prolactin blood tests should be done asap to find out the exact cause for irregular menses. Your weight is little higher so you r likely to be suffering from pcod, which can be confirmed on ultrasound.

Leukorrhea is a very common problem among women. It refers to a thin or thick, whitish or yellowish vaginal discharge that may occur in between menstruation cycles or during pregnancy and usually lasts from a few days to weeks. In most cases, it is nothing to be alarmed about and is considered normal as long as it does not cause irritation, discomfort, odor and itching. Leukorrhea, however, can also be caused by hormonal changes, particularly due to an increase in estrogen. A vaginal infection or std, too, may cause leukorrhea, especially if the discharge is yellow or green and accompanied by foul odor. Apple cider vinegar apple cider vinegar is considered beneficial for treating leukorrhea. It helps restore your body? s natural ph balance. Also, its acidic and antiseptic properties help restore the acidic quality of the vaginal flora and reduce vaginal odor? mix equal amounts of distilled water and raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar. Use it as a vaginal wash once or twice a day for a few days? you can also drink a glass of water mixed with one or two tablespoons of raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar once daily.

Vaginal odor is a very common problem that most women have to deal with at least once or twice in their life. Vaginal odor can be due to a number of reasons, such as bacterial growth, yeast infections, poor hygiene, hormonal changes, and sexually transmitted diseases. Keep the vagina dry after every wash. You can take homoeopathic medicine sulphur 200 (4 drops in little water) every morning for a week and revert.

Dengue Fever and Homeopathic management-

Dengue fever is a virus-caused disease that is spread by the bite of mosquitoes (Aedes-aegypti). This is also known as Break bone fever. WHO currently estimates there may be 50–100 million dengue infections worldwide every year. Dengue is not transmitted directly from person-to-person.

Symptoms:
Its symptoms range from mild fever to fatigue, headache,
joint and muscle aches,nausea or vomiting,
swollen lymph nodes.
In severe cases hemorrhage dengue fever which is characterized by fever, abdominal pain, persistent vomiting, bleeding and breathing difficulty; can be fetal due to blood loss.

Prevention: Clothing, mosquito repellent, and netting can help reduce exposure to mosquitoes. Traveling during periods of minimal mosquito activity can also be helpful.

Homeopathic management: Homeopathy has been used successfully in India to tackle this epidemic. The selection of homoeopathic remedies depends upon the individual response to infection.

Why it is so painful in periods n having a very low flow. It also lasts for 7-8days.
Kindly take sukumara kshasyam, 20ml, in warm water twice a day, empty stomach. Take dashamoolarishta, 20 ml, in warm water, after meals, twice day. Pain during menstruation is due to hormonal imbalances. Take warm water to drink. Good luck. Stop the medication when periods start. Continue the regime for 2 months. Good luck.
