Sex. Ki baat achi lagti hai par jab koi karti hai toh gussa aa jata hai. kya karun ?
sex ki baat achi hi. lekin koyi karti hai toh gussa as jata hai. words it is not painful. it is not harmful to body. but practically we do it it is very painful. unable to control our anger in your age. initially everybody feel painful. later they will enjoy it. in opinion better to enjoy with words. do not go practically. when you marry then go for safer sex. any work in compulsory situation we do it it has some meaning. for entertainment we do it leads some problems. if not marry it is better to avoid to these type of thoughts.better to enjoy with words of sexual talk. do not participate in practical aspects. one more thing is if you do one time it is not possible to stop yourself. you want some more experiments. so it is better to stop thinking and using this type of thoughts. practically it is lot of painful and guilty feelings, lose of self confidence, lack of interest on other aspects also. so in this age. it is better to concentrate on your studies. if time comes you will know the experience. up to that wait. dont think and dont go practical aspects. dont be alone and dont think too much about sex. be share your personal feelings and problems with your close friends and family members. be sociable all the time and be happy.ok all the best.

Cord around the beck is detected on ultrasound and sometimes it slips also from baby's neck because of movements but even if it remains there then baby can be delivered by cesarean section let your obstretician decide for that at the appropriate time just follow your doctor's instructions nothing to worry if you are aware and careful you can easily handle it

My wife dose not getting pregnancy 45yrs old all test is ok.

Advanced Aesthetics

My wife dose not getting pregnancy 45yrs old all test is ok.
Folic acid If you and your partner are planning to conceive, you should start taking folic acid before you get pregnant. Folic acid helps to provide the best health outcomes for your baby when it is growing. Taking folic acid daily before and during pregnancy also prevents the occurrence of neural tube defects, such as spina bifida, in your baby. The best time to get pregnant You?re most likely to get pregnant if you have sex within a day or so of ovulation (releasing an egg from the ovary). This is usually about 14 days after the first day of your last period. An egg lives for about 12-24 hours after it?s released. For pregnancy to happen, the egg must be fertilised by a sperm within this time. If you want to get pregnant, having sex every couple of days will mean there?s always sperm waiting in the fallopian tubes to meet the egg when it?s released. For treatment consult privately.

Last 7 years having pcod I conceived in 2012 with medication. I had suffered miscarriage by its own due to some choromose defect. Since then unable to conceive taken IUI three times. My husband had ED problem but his sperm report was okay last year. Now doctor advice to do YQ MICRODELETION test before going for IVF. Is it necessary to do a test & required at this stage? Pls help.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Patients with y chromosome microdeletion usually have less sperm count and presence or abscence of it does not change the outcome of pregnancy or pregnancy chances. If sperm count was very low then it was definitely a useful test but in your case it is definitely not needed. I think you should try for 3 more cycles of iui before spending a lot on ivf treatment.

Hello, visit a gynecologist and get follicular monitoring done to see when her egg is rupturing. At the time of egg rupturing, you can have timed intercourse which can increase your chances of pregnancy.

Hello doc, which is preferable positions for sex to Increase in chance of getting pregnant.
.
Any position that allows deeper penetration by male partner allows faster and easy sperm transfer towards the uterus. Can go for any such as doggie style or normally used female down and male on top.

All the time it is all about irregular periods which is making to get worry

BHMS
Homeopath,
All the time it is all about irregular periods which is making to get worry
Hello. We can minimize the pain during menses with diet and medicines (which are safe to take).. Diet: - Calcium is a mineral associated with building healthy bones and teeth. However, it may have some applications in minimizing the harmful effects of menstrual cramping. So,increase your intake by eating low-fat dairy products such as milk, yogurt and cheese or green leafy vegetables. - Your body uses vitamin B-6 to manufacture new red blood cells. When you lose red blood cells via menorrhagia, your body will need more to build new cells. Also, vitamin B-6 is required for your blood sugar to stay at healthy levels. This can help prevent menstrual cramping-related mood swings and fatigue. Vitamin B-6 is found in fortified cereals, bananas, spinach, sunflower seeds, avocados, tomato juice and salmon. - Just as foods can help reduce the symptoms of menstrual cramping and bleeding, foods can aggravate your symptoms. This includes eating excessive amounts of sugar -- such as cakes, cookies and pies. These are known to contribute to water retention, which make you feel bloated and uncomfortable. High-salt content foods -- french fries, pizza and other fried foods --- can also contribute to bloating. Caffeine-containing beverages like tea and coffee should be avoided as they can contribute to headaches, mood swings and trouble sleeping. - If you're craving chocolate, make sure it's over 70 per cent cocoa. This bittersweet treat will help you relax your muscles. - We all know fluids are essential when your body is cramping or bloating. Drinking two to three litres of water during your period is essential. - Tea is an easy way to replace your caffeine craving. Green tea to soothe cramps. now, even though green tea contains caffeine, try decaffeinated green tea instead — but be aware, you may lose some health benefits with a decaf version. Caffeine is another no-no. Drinking lots of coffee or pop during your period can increase higher levels of tension and anxiety. - Avoid anything that can damage your liver should be off the list. So, avoid alcohol. - Red meat, Smart says, is also know to cause stomach upsets and cramps. Medication: Start taking homoeopathic medicines - Mag. Phos. 6x and Colocynthis 200 - every 2 hrly. during the time of menses. And take Five Phos. and Alfaalfa Tonic - thrice daily for 1 month. Revert me back.

Miracle Drink-Apple, Carrot, and Beetroot Juice

PGD IN ULTRAASONOGRAPHY, Non invasive cardiology course, MD - Medicine, MBBS

Miracle Drink-Apple, Carrot, and Beetroot Juice

What do you get when you mix together apple, carrot, and beetroot juice? You get miracle drink.
The drink has gained fame by the name, miracle drink because the countless benefits it gives to your brain and body is truly a miracle.

This powerful drink was introduced by chinese herbalists for the treatment of lung cancer and many other diseases ages ago. But currently, it has gained massive popularity all over the world because of its magical health benefits.

The drink is simple to make all you need is a juicer, apples, carrots, and beetroots. Juice them with their skins on and consume right after making it. Do not store. How many carrots, apples or beets you add to the juice is up to your own taste. You can either add more carrots or increase the number of apples. For best results, try to take them in equal quantities. You can even add lime juice to enhance its taste but do not add sugar.

Power of two vegetable and one fruit:
Packed in this juice are the power of two vegetables and one fruit, all enriched with a plentiful amount of lifesaving antioxidants. Apples contain nutrients like vitamin a, b1, b2, b6, c, e and k, folate, niacin, zinc, copper, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, iron, calcium, sodium, and manganese. Also, the dietary fibers found in apples are very beneficial for health. Carrots contain a wide variety of vitamins such as vitamin a, b1, b2, b3, b6, c, e and k, folate, niacin and pantothenic acid. There are minerals like potassium, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium and selenium packed in it. One of the most important components found in carrots is beta-carotene. You can get the best of these nutrients by juicing the carrots. And the heart friendly beetroots are enriched with nutrients like vitamin a, c, b-complex, potassium, iron, magnesium, and copper. They contain anti-aging agents as well.

With the combined effect of the three, you can get enough nutrients that will not just keep you going through the day but would also have long-term beneficial effects on your health.

I am 19 years old I have a severe menstrual problems. I am suffering from severe stomach pain.

If it's beyond tolerance, may take pain killer sometimes but we do not recommend it as a routine. Its not the solution. You may take raktavardhak and aarta shuddhi herbs for about 4 weeks. After seeing response we may advise next phase. If you agree we may advise the same.

Dear Lybrate user, If both fallopian tubes are blocked, then there is no chance of ovum and sperm meeting for fertiisation. Sometimes, however, HSG may give a false impression of blockage. It is advisable to undergo laparoscopy in such cases to rule out blockage. If tubal blockage is confirmed, IVF is the only option. Medicines will not work.

It is not legal for you to take these medicine without doctor consultation. We need take your consent for abortion on a form. After explaining everything about it. Then only we can prescribe medicines on three prescriptions. It is illegal to purchase these medicine without doctor prescription. No chemist will give you these medicine without prescription.
