masturbation side effects and homeopathy
Masturbation is the process of bringing about a voluntary excitement of the sexual centers following generally by the discharge of semen, through some method other than normal sexual intercourse. In other words, “Masturbation” means ejaculation of semen by hand. because of the hand to practise it, it is widely known as “Hand Practice”. This habit is also known as “Self-Abuse”, since it is done by one’s own self by his own hand.

Some of the after- effects of masturbation are:
a. The nervous system is affected the most.
b. Besides the heart, the digestive system, the urinary system as well as the other systems are adversely affected and consequently the whole body becomes the museum of diseases with profound weakness.
c. The eyes become sunken, the cheek bones protrude and there is a black rim round the eyes.
d. Continuous headache and backache.
e. Dizziness and loss of memory.
f. Palpitation of heart on lightest exertion.
g. Nervousness.
h. Unable to perform any heavy physical or mental work.
i. The person dislikes any company and activities and rather likes to sit in seclusion and suffers from weakness.
j. All the senses are impaired.
k. Vision becomes dim, the tongue begins to stammer and ears tend to become deaf etc.
l. Lastly T.B. or insanity or some other serious disease catch hold of the victim to lead his life to a close.
m. Impotency.
Therefore, young men are advised to consult a qualified and honest homoeopathic practitioner for his expert advice and effective treatment instead of wasting his money with quacks. Further, those young men who are or have been engaged in the regular habits of masturbation should not ignore the necessity to consult the qualified homoeopaths to avoid sexual embarrassment at the time of marriage.you can message me your complaints in details for treatment- Dr Rushali Angchekar

This disorder is very common among women, especially among pregnant women. This problem is usually not very serious and tends to subside within 4-5 days. However, in certain cases, they are capable of causing serious complications.

  1. Vaginal discharge that is white or grey in colour
  2. Constant itching in your vagina
  3. The vaginal discharge usually has a foul smelling odour
  4. Burning sensation during urination

Causes
Vaginal bacteria can be either good or bad. Any disruption in the delicate balance of the vaginal bacteria can lead to bacterial vaginosis. There is no exact known cause of this disorder, but it is believed that having multiple sex partners can aggravate this risks. Other factors include:

  1. Douching: If you clean your vagina with water and other cleansing agents on a regular basis, it might cause a bacterial imbalance, thus leading to this infection. 
  2. Multiple partners: Having multiple sex partners puts you at a higher risk of contracting bacterial vaginosis. This disorder may also lead to various complications such as:
    • STIs: This infection may make you highly susceptible to various infections such as Chlamydia, HIV and gonorrhoea.
    • Disorders of the pelvic region: Bacterial vaginosis may lead to inflammation in the pelvic region, which in turn may lead to infertility.
    • Preterm birth: It increases the chances of premature birth
  3. Smoking: Smoking frequently increases the risk of a bacterial vaginosis infection.
  4. Unprotected sex: Having sex without proper protection increases the risk levels of bacterial vaginosis. 

There are certain preventive measures that you can adopt to prevent this condition:

  1. Use soaps which contain no or very little chemicals to clean the region around your genitals
  2. Use latex condoms during sexual intercourse to prevent STIs.
  3. Do not clean your vagina (the practice referred to as douching) on a regular basis. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

Its been 3 days since my friend's course for crina ncr 15 had been over. She was advised to take one tablet for five days at night after dinner for five. Still she has no periods is there anything to worry about? When can she expect her periods?

MBBS, MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, FMAS, DMAS

Hello, in that case she should get a urine pregnancy test done to rule out pregnancy and if ruled out then opt for an ultrasound to see the endometrial thickness and if its more than 9mm still then she should get a d&c done.

This month my period hasn't come. I am assuming it can be because of the pills I have taken for my UTI infection please suggest is it possible or there can be any other issues.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Menses can be missed either because of hormonal changes or illness like urine infection or even stress or even if you have put on some weight in recent times then also menses can be missed. All these problems are temporary and menses will come on its own. You can wait for another 30 days before you can take tablet deviry to get menses, if pregnancy is not the issue here.

My female friend took an I pill twice in a week within 24 hours of the act as the condom broke twice. Now she is late on her period by a day or two. Would taking I pill twice in a week reduce its affect and what should she do now? Should the period be expected late or is something wrong?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
I-pill has a failure rate of 5% which makes it 10% in your case as she took it twice. Menses can get delayed without pregnancy after 2 ipill. If menses r missed by 7 days she should get urine test done.

What if a baby is in fallopian tube, do a women will be in trouble if she carries that.

Diploma in Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
Baby needs space to grow and in tubal pregnancy, it cannot grow beyond 6-8 weeks, tube gets ruptured and it is an emergency to operate. If ultrasound confirms tubal pregnancy in an otherwise normal pregnant woman, there is no need to operate, there is medical treatment available, dead tissue gets washed off and tubes are spared for future pregnancies.

Ipill types of medicines are loaded with hormones which can make cycle erratic. Better take care of her Health in a scientific manner. Visit doctor who can recommend a low dose hormonal oral tablets for few months to regularize cycle and to avoid unwanted pregnancy.

I heard that premature babies develop their milestone late as other normal babies. My daughter is preterm 32 week. Would everything be normal.Please tell.

Diploma in Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
No need to carry any doubts, Premature babies are handed to parents only when they become near normal weight after fed in a nursery with top feeds, after that the milestones and weight gain is @ normal kids born with weight 2-3 kg at birth.

I get pains in period but morning time when I awake then come period, why,causes in pain? Please advice me.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Kolkata
If it is central abdomen pain just above the public bone, lasting few hours only on the first day, then it mat be quite normal. It is due to spasm of uterus muscle as it begins to expel. Use hot water bag, avoid spiced foods, non-veg, oily foods and if required an antispasmodic tablet can be useful. Any pain which is more than described above will need a visit to the doctor.

Lactation itself causes stoppage / delay in periods, but pregnancy in lactation still can occur. So always use protection. Wait for 4-5 days and do a pregnancy test.

Hello, It is not advisable to continue pregnancy as uterine scar is still raw and not healed completely. But if you wish, you have to be under surveillance regularly.

I am 24 and I am pregnant snd I would like to know the sleeping position from four months to nine months.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
1.After your forth month, your back is definitely not best. Sleeping on your back puts extra pressure on your blood vessels (aorta and inferior vena cava ) that run behind your abdomen and carry blood back to your heart from your legs and feet. Pressure on these vessels can slow blood circulation to your body -- and your baby. 2.Not back or stomach. You might find it harder to breathe while lying on your back. And because your belly pushes down on your intestines when you lie on your back, this position can also lead to tummy troubles. How about sleeping on your stomach? That's not a great idea, either. When you lie face down, your stomach presses on your expanding uterus -- not to mention your increasing breasts. Left is best. Right now, side sleeping is safest for your baby. Plus, it's more comfortable for you as your abdomen grows.I recommend lying on your left side is more comfortable than lying on right side. It improves circulation, giving nutrient-packed blood an easier route from your heart to the placenta to nourish your baby. Lying on the left side also keeps your expanding body weight from pushing down too hard on your liver. While either side is okay, left is best.
