It might be possible she be heavier in physique. And her fitness lever is low. And anemia. Consequently low sexual desire. If the case is so she should work on to make herself fit and fine as much as possible. Take vegetable, fruits, milk low fat, salads etc. A nd do yoga. May take ayurvedic medicines for faster results she will be okay. Soon.

Does sweet decreases sex drive in female. Can you suggest what amount of sweet is fine for sex drive.
Scientific research does not conclusively said if sweets have a positive or negative effect on sex drive. Studies have shown both results, but majorly indicating an increase in sex drive rather than decreasing it.

I have had sex without condom with three different girls in last 6 months. I have no bad symptoms yet but I am worried now. Should I consult a doctor? Do I need to do some test? Any comments would be helpful.

Hello lybrate user, yes consulting a doctor would be a best option because he/she can trace a useful history from you for diagnosis purpose. You can have std (sexually transmitted disease) profile done including hiv elisa, hbsag, hcv, vdrl, hsv igg and igm & urine test, for hiv elisa, 3 months should be there otherwise go for hiv rna test. Always, use condom. It is best protection.

Hello, I'm 24 years women unmarried. My problem is when I watch sex movies I get pain in my vagina and when I stop watching or think about it pain goes away. And my vaginal hole is too small, im scared whether I can have sex or not. Do I have any problem? Will this effect my marriage life?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hi, when a female gets sexually aroused, the general characteristics of the excitement phase, which can last from a few minutes to several hours, include the following: muscle tension increases. Heart rate quickens and breathing is accelerated. Skin may become flushed. Nipples become hardened or erect. Blood flow to the genitals increases, resulting in swelling of the woman's clitoris and labia minora (inner lips). Vaginal lubrication begins. The woman's breasts become fuller and the vaginal walls begin to swell. So, collection of all these symptoms are normal which you experience when there is sexual excitement which is normal. The vagina gets lubricated and allows penis to go inside vagina easily, so don't worry it wouldn't affect your married life.

Irregular period does not mean that ur girlfriend cannot get pregnant. If u don't want to have accidental pregnancy , use protection in future. As far as her current situation, if she has got her normal periods, that means she is not pregnant.

6 Winter Health Symptoms You Shouldn't Ignore

MD - General Medicine
Sexologist, Delhi
6 Winter Health Symptoms You Shouldn't Ignore

Traditionally, winter is a time for running around throwing snowballs, trying (and failing) to hit the high notes in" all I want for christmas is you. And then creeping inside to deal with our dripping noses and dry throats. For many of us, winter health problems are as much a part of the season as holiday cookies or goofy knit caps. However, while you may be resigned to feeling less than great for the next few months, there are some winter health symptoms that you shouldn't blow off as" just what happens when it gets this cold" — because they could be a sign of a serious problem.


 

Many of these symptoms might be familiar; perhaps you've experienced them for years, every time the temperature drops. But that doesn't mean they're normal or unavoidable — yes, virginia, it is unusual to have colds on and off from autumn to spring, to have a cough that lasts three months, or to have your fingers go white every time you spend some time in the freezing outdoors. Just because it's normal for you, doesn't mean it's not actually a health concern.


 

So if any of the six symptoms below strike a chord, get yourself checked out by a doctor — yes, even if you're sure it's not a big deal/ you hate causing a fuss/don't want to bother the doctor/whatever other excuse you've been using to get out of a gp visit. Just go. Your lungs, circulation, immune system or whatever else will thank you.

 

1. White fingers

If you live in a spectacularly cold area, you're doubtless familiar with the one serious problem that whitened fingertips after exposure to freezing weather can signal: frostbite. But if you habitually suffer from fingers whiter than santa's beard every time you spend some time outdoors, you may have a different problem — a condition called raynaud's syndrome.


 

Raynaud's syndrome is essentially a malfunctioning of the blood vessels in your extremities. If they're exposed to cold or stress, they'll contract temporarily, restricting the blood flow massively and leading to the syndrome's trademark creepy whiteness. As the blood vessels relax and the blood returns, your fingers will flush and hurt. Raynaud's is pretty common (up to 20 percent of adults worldwide have it), but it's also got some serious possible side effects, including ulcers — so if you're nodding your head in recognition here, hop it to your gp.


 

2. Flushed cheeks

The winter season is all about pink cheeks, right? what would the season be without flushed-cheek children frolicking and taking sleigh rides? yep, but if you're getting a bit too flushed, you could actually be afflicted with something more serious than festive cheer.


 

If you've noticed that your flushed cheeks last for a long time or seem to be lingering and sticking around like a sunburn, you may have the beginnings of rosacea, a dermal disease related to the blood vessels in your face. As the name indicates, it shows up as a painful rosiness and redness of the skin, as well as occasional pimples. But if you identify with all these symptoms, don't worry — you're not alone. Up to 10 percent of people in cold countries suffer from rosacea, and there are a host of treatments available, from facial gels to avoiding triggers (coffee is, alas, partially responsible). So even if you feel like it's not making a major dent in your life, you still might want to get your potential rosacea checked out.


 

3. Wheezing

When you come in out of the cold weather, do your lungs usually sound like a bellows? wheezing — which typically involves a whistling noise and feeling of restriction when you breathe — isn't actually a normal respiratory reaction to the cold, so if you've started to give a decent impression of a deflating balloon every time you head indoors, you need to see a doctor.


 

Wheezing can be a sign of many health issues, including bronchial infections, asthma and even allergies. If you're wheezing and you know you won't be able to see a doctor for a while, make sure to at least wrap yourself up very well every time you go outside (particularly around the neck and face), and try not to do exercise in cold air (which, if you have asthma will, can leave you with a wheeze so intense, it may sound like a seal bark).


 

4. A cough that won't go away

The concept of a" persistent cough" doesn't really hit home until you've actually spent weeks or months with the thing hanging around, interrupting your sleep and making you the most hated person in any movie theater you enter. Coughs are often benign, but it is important to watch how long they last. If they don't clear up in less than two weeks, you may just have lasting irritation in your airways after a cold or could be suffering from an allergy — but your cough might also be pointing to other health conditions.


 

A prolonged cough may mean that you have developed a bacterial infection in your airways, particularly if you notice that the cough's accompanied by a bit of pain. The four other common causes of prolonged cough, according to harvard research, are a postnasal drip, asthma, acid reflux, or certain blood pressure medications which induce cough — and all of these situations deserve medical attention. And in extremely rare circumstances, a cough that won't go away can also be a sign of lung cancer. So don't feel like you should just wait for it to go away on its own.


 

5. Extremely dry lips

Dry lips are a constant struggle for most of us in cold weather, but if the problem persists even when you've smothered them in every chapped lip solution known to man, you may actually deal dealing with a more unusual problem: a vitamin a overdose. Women are only supposed to have 700mg of vitamin a per day, and if you're exceeding that, your body may be reacting in some unusual ways.


 

A vitamin a overdose is known as hypervitaminosis a, and it's not fun: along with dry, cracked lips, your skin and mucus membranes go dry and you may suffer from hair loss. It's most often caused by people taking too many vitamin a supplements (like cod liver oil) and also occurs as a side effect of some heavy-duty acne meds. So if you're concerned, be very sensible when it comes to supplement use and the balance of vitamin a-heavy foods like sweet potato and tuna in your diet.


 

6. Persistent colds

Long-term vegetarians and vegans will probably be familiar with this one: if your body seems to be completely incapable of recovering from colds, or only lets you feel healthy for a few days before you catch the next one, you might actually have an iron deficiency affecting your immune system. The medical term is iron deficiency anemia, and it leaves your body vulnerable to infections and viral illnesses.


 

Iron plays a big role in the immune system; it is a necessity for red blood cells, which carry oxygen around the body. If those red blood cells are not working properly, your system gets fatigued and oxygen-starved and can't fight off illness. You can fight this deficiency through upping your consumption of vegetarian-friendly iron-rich foods, like dark leafy green veggies, legumes, and whole grains. And if you aren't a vegetarian, one of the most highly recommended ways to combat iron deficiency anemia is seriously seasonally appropriate: eat dark turkey meat, which has tons of iron. So bring on that christmas lunch early! you just have to have the turkey leg, for medical reasons.

Is there an option to abort 15 days pregnancy naturally. If so are there any side effects?

Is there an option to abort 15 days pregnancy naturally. If so are there any side effects?
Pregnancy can be terminated with medicines (mifepristone and misoprostol) only till 7 weeks of pregnancy. As you said it is 15 days after missed period, which is almost 6-7 weeks. You need to hurry to get the abortion done with medicines. Gynecologist only can write a prescription for her. There are no natural methods or food to abort. With these medicines abortion occurs naturally.
