Hello doctor for me always the sex mood is occur in my mind so how to clear it. Please give a solution otherwise can I do sex with neighbour girls. Please give suggestions to clear it. Do not think wrong sir. Thank you.

MD - Psychiatry

In your age having sexual thoughts most of the time is normal. But it should be in such a way it doesn't interfere with your studies or job or day to day functioning. If the thoughts are excessive and you feel distressed, it becomes sexual obsessions and you need to have medicines to reduce them. Sex between consenting adults is medically normal. Bur unprotected sex with unknown partners has their own risks, if you plan to do so, protect yourself.

I am two month pregnant. My wait is increasing very rapidly. And my tummy becomes out in two months like 3-4 months. Har koi khne lga h ki abi se itna tummy dikhta h. I am in tension. How I manage my wait now a days. Can you please suggest any helpful ideas and diet chart for pregnant lady which can help to maintain weight and also good for baby. My fat deposits on thigh, Upper arms, waist, Upper back. I can't wear my old dresses.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
There is around 11 kg weight gain during pregnancy. During the first three months of pregnancy, women should gain only 1-2 kg. From the beginning of your fourth month until you give birth for your existing weight of 54 kg, you should gain 400gm/week. For reducing your weight you should have brisk walk for 4-5 km daily, high protein diet (fish, chicken, mutton without fat, pulses, mushrooms), low carbohydrate diet (avoid rice, chapatti, bread, poha, upma, idli, dosa, potato, sugar etc and can use bhakri instead) and low fat i. E. Less oil and preferably use rice bran oil.

Dear lybrate-user. These dream related incidents are not real at all and they have nothing to do with your present, past or future. Therefore you should ignore them. Many people do complain about as you are complaining now and therefore, your problem is never mysterious or only yours. Just ignore those dreams. Take care.

My father having some kind of pain in his body due to hard work at office. He sometimes drinks alcohol to reduce it but I know alcohol is not a solution. So please recommend me any supplement or give me some advice.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Patna
Get his blood sugar, liver tests like serum bilirubin, sgot, sgpt, ggt done. If normal then ok, if abnormal you may sound it to your father that due to alcohol his health is being affected. Certainly he will reduce/stop alcohol abuse.

I have panic attacks and frequent anxieties, I feel depressed every time this sickness comes. I am a student so I can't do anything living with sleeping pills. What do I need to totally cure this sickness?

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
You appear to be suffering from panic disorder. This is seen in 2-3% of the people in the general community. Clonazepam (clonotril) is used as part of initial treatment but is not a definitive treatment. Proper assessment followed by treatment with an ssri medication is definitive treatment. Also, we need to assess for any comorbidities and assess triggers for such panic attacks. Treatments including cognitive behaviour therapy & relaxation techniques would be extremely helpful. Take care.

I want to quit smoking what shud I do some time I just stop smoking then later again I start smoking I want to stop completely.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Best age to stop smoking is before 40 ,In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs/ weed, avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40.

Hi there ~ Increase Your Running Stamina with Interval Training Use interval training. There are several benefits to interval training that will help you get the most out of your runs, and increase your stamina.[1] Improve cardiovascular capacity. Endurance running can take wind out of you. By using the interval training, you'll increase your anaerobic capacity (oxygen-depleting). And when you combine this with aerobic capacity (oxygen-building with easy runs and long runs), these will end up making you faster. Burning calories. Bursts of energy (the high-intensity part of interval training) will increase the amount of calories you burn. This is true even for relatively short bursts. It adds interest to your running routine. It may seem a small thing, but boredom with your normal running routine can make it much harder to stay motivated. Perform steady intervals. This is the easiest way to incorporate interval training. You simply alternate equal periods of high and low-intensity running. Start with a ten to fifteen minute warm-up. Start with a rapid walk followed by a slow jog, picking up speed at the end of the warm-up to break into a full run. This will make sure your body is properly warmed-up before you begin the intense speed work If you are first starting out doing intervals, you need to train your body to get used to the hard intervals. Run at high speed for one minute followed by two minutes of slow running or walking. Repeat these intervals six to eight times. Do this for several weeks until you feel comfortable with the rest. Then lower your recovery/rest time by 30 seconds until you are running 50/50 burst (such as one minute burst followed by one minute rest). Make sure you and your body are ready to increase the intensity of the faster pace intervals and reduce your rest/recovery period before you reduce the rest/recovery time. End with a fifteen to twenty-five minute cool-down. Ease from a run to a light jog, and then gradually slow to a walk towards the end of the cool-down period. Use pyramid interval training. Pyramid intervals start with short bursts of high intensity and then build up so that the longest period of high-intensity training is in the middle of your workout. Then, you gradually pull back to the shorter burst of intensity before completing your cool down. This is somewhat more complex than steady intervals, and you may want to use a stopwatch to maintain your times. Warm up for ten to fifteen minutes. As described above, begin with a rapid walk followed by a light jog, picking up speed at the end of the warmup so that you are running at high intensity at the end of the warmup period. Run for 30 seconds at high intensity. Then, run at low intensity for one minute. Continue as follows: 45 seconds high, one-minute, fifteen-second low. 60 seconds high, one-minute, thirty-second low. 90 seconds high, two minute low. 60 seconds high, one-minute, thirty-second low. 45 seconds high, one-minute, fifteen-second low. 50 seconds high, one minute low. Finish up with a twenty-minute to thirty-minute cool down, ending at a comfortable walk. NOTE--> When you start out any interval training program, you need to make sure your body is adjusted and ready to start it. Doing too much too soon can lead to injuries. Just like when you are building up your mileage, you don't just build up. You gradually build up. IF you are pointing to a specific race, you do longer intervals with longer rest several months before the race. As the race approaches, you increase the intensity and shorten the recovery. Do variable intervals. If you play sports like tennis in addition to running, you know that speed and stamina requirements vary according to the conditions of the game. Variable intervals help you to mix up short and long high-intensity intervals in an unpredictable pattern, which more closely mimics the irregular bursts of speed that are part of typical playing conditions. Warm up for ten to fifteen minutes of easy running. Mix it up. Run for two minutes at high intensity and then jog slowly for two-minutes, thirty-seconds. Run at top speed for 30 seconds and then jog for 45 seconds. Mix up your intervals at random. Just make sure that you rest for longer periods after longer high-intensity intervals than you do for short bursts. When starting out, keep your rest periods slightly longer until your body is ready to shorten the rest intervals. Cool down for fifteen to twenty-five minutes. Use the interval setting on a treadmill. When you run intervals on a treadmill, the machine mixes up both the speed and the incline, presenting you with new and unpredictable challenges. Just make sure to warm up and cool down afterward if these periods aren't built into the interval training program. Add weight training to your running. Weight training increases your running economy, which means that you use oxygen more efficiently during your run. Try doing free weights, machines or other strength training exercises three times per week. Do high-powered bike intervals. Pedaling on a high-tension exercise bike setting works your leg muscles even more than running uphill, without the impact on your joints. While you pedal on an exercise bike, gradually increase the tension until you can barely move the wheel. Stand up and do intervals of pedaling as fast as you can. Rest and lower the tension between intervals. For example: Stand and pedal at high tension for 30 seconds. Then sit, lower the tension and pedal more slowly for 1 minute. Keep alternating between standing and pedaling at high intensity and sitting and pedaling at low intensity for 1 minute. You can also perform pyramid intervals of 30, then 45, then 60, then 90 seconds. Then, bring it down by doing 60, 45 and then 30 second intervals. Be sure to do the lower-intensity seated pedaling between the high-intensity intervals. Sign up for a spinning class—the instructor will guide the class through a prepared set of pedaling exercises that will dramatically increase your stamina. Swim some laps. You can either swim as a break after a hard workout or simply include some swimming to change up your routine. Swimming has the added advantage of working your upper body muscles, which are typically underdeveloped in runners Increase your mileage by 10 percent per week. For example, if you run 2 miles (3.2 km) per day, then add 2⁄10 mile (0.3 km) to your daily run for a week. Continue adding 10 percent to your run to increase your stamina. But make sure to alternate your training. For example, if you run 20 miles (32 km) a week, you will increase it to 22 miles (35 km) the next week. But the week after that, bring your mileage back down thus allowing your body to adapt (so run maybe 18-20 miles). Then the week after that, take it up to 25 miles (40 km) a week, followed by reducing your mileage to 21–23 miles (34–37 km) then following week. Gradually build up your running. The peak mileage you pick depends on the race you would like to do.

The fantasy you are talking about is OK, but practicing it with your girl friend and another person is bad. Such a step will ruin your and her life. Sincerely, if your girl friend is willing for that action, ditch her. She cannot be a good girl friend to you. Take care.

Actually last month my brother in law aged 44 expired due to metastatic cancer in pancreas & intrahepatic cancer in liver. I was surprised to see that being a fully fit man without any disease. Now I am very much tensed that it could happen with any one. Pl suggest me which/what type of test/treatment could be taken up as a precautionary step.

It is sad to hear about your brother in law. Your height and weight indicate that you are fit and fine. You should not worry about disease and untimely death. Get your complete body tests/check done every three years from now on. You can only control what is in your hands. 1. Good natural simple nutrition 2. Daily exercise activities to stay fit. 3. Proper relaxation and sleep 4. Being stress free 5. Being happy and spreading happiness. If you can do all this then live a happy life. No one knows how many days we have been granted on this earth. We can only live in this moment. Breathe well and live well.

Dear lybrate user, it appears that your brother is under lot of stress. But in spite of this he is not taking care of his health and there has to be some reason for this. He may be having certain issues that he is not able to share with anyone. Please take him to a counsellor, who will help him to have a healthy outlet for his unexpressed emotions and the counsellor will help him to think rationally. You, along with your other family members may help him by contributing financially. May be, if you and other family members start earning some money, your brother will be relieved of some stress, because you said, right now, he is the only earning member. See how you all can change your lifestyles to support him. All the best.

I got my drivers license like a month ago. However, I am terrified of driving. I hateeee driving because I am always thinking that something wrong will happened. I use to love to drive when I almost got into an accident and was totally frozen! Doctors said that I suffer from anxiety. They did not tell me anything further but I will like to start back to drive comfortably on my own. Any suggestions? Thank you in advance.

Its natural to be anxious before re starting something in which you almost failed once. However if that keeps you terrified of driving due to which you keep away from it, then you certainly have anxiety that is impairing your functioning. This may include behaviour therapies to relax while driving with some medications if required.

I am 30 yr old male suffering from anxiety from last 6 years. As I know that anxiolytic drugs have side effects and it's withdrawal symptoms can make the anxiety more worse than before, how one can be treated with this kind of medication? I am trying to control it by keeping myself busy, doing yoga, pranayam but can't avoid symptoms associated with this disorder. Is there any alternative treatment available to cure anxiety?

Dear , anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. Yoga and pranayama are very good. In addition to that psychotherapy and awareness also helps. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety.
