Hello. I want to know about last period date and also if possible get your urine pregnancy test and ultrasound done. It will depend on this how to plan for your future medications. If you do not wish to have a pregnancy at present, then you should not waste time and get this checked as early as possible.

You either have urine infection or infection in vagina. Get a urine routine test done and blood sugar. Ask your obstetrician for an intravaginal pessary for a vaginal infection.

U can wait for the menses to stop and for the next period time interval if it is less than a normal cycle than consult to gynecologist. It is most likely due to hormonal imbalance.

Dear lybrate-user you have not mentioned why did you get ultrasound done. Anyway 5 mm stone in kidney if asymptomatic, nothing to worry but have one consultation with urologist. Ovarian cyst of this size if not causing any problem take ocs for three months and repeat ultrasound. If cyst disappears nothing to worry. If remains of same size and asymptomatic nothing to be done. If cyst grows and reaches 6 cm and belonged, surgery is only option.

Hello, Subject to every thing remains normal in a male partner,  underlying norms be monitored for quick & safe pregnancy. •female partner should take plenty of water to hydrate the entire body including reproductive organs. •Should go for meditation to reduce stress and nourish reproductive organs & to control BP, level as well. Apart from medication, you need to opt the under lying food elements to carry on your pregnancy safely and faster, even. •Apples - carry. Vit A, B1,B2, B6,C & folic acid, hence-eating apples during pregnancy provide quick energy containing  carbohydrate with low calory, preventing high blood pressure in a pregnant women. Sugar and insulin levels be maintained to tone up  the hormonal balance conditioning  reproductive system. Calculation of ovulation period be taken into account to concieve fast & successfully. Banana, brown bread & rice, mackerel, salmon, tofu ,eggs, lemon, orange, almonds, ashpargus, kidney bean, milk, cheese carry safer & faster  pregnancy. Homoeopathy may stand with you in need. Your feedback matters, please for further follow up, please. Tk care.

Treatment for Loss of Libido in Men

Loss of libido in men :
Lack of desire in men can be of either physical or psychological origin

Physical causes:
Alcoholism – quite common.
Abuse of drugs such as cocaine.
Obesity – quite common; slimming down will often help.
Anaemia - unusual, unless the man has been bleeding for any reason.
Hyperprolactinaemia the pituitary gland produces too much of the hormone prolactin.
Prescribed drugs – particularly proscar (finasteride), a tablet used for prostate problems and also medications affecting the brain.
Low testosterone level – contrary to what many people think, this is uncommon, except in cases where some injury or illness has affected the testicles.
Any major disease such as diabetes.
Head injury.
An underactive thyroid gland.
 

Psychological causes

Depression – very common.
Stress and overwork.
Exhaustion.
Hang-ups from childhood.
Latent homosexuality.
Serious relationship problems with your partner.
 

Treatment:
Get physical check-up, and also any blood tests which the doctor thinks necessary, like a blood count or thyroid tests.
Medicines:

Dhea: short for dehydroepiandrosterone, this neurotransmitter is required for the production of testosterone, the hormone that can rev up sex drive. 
Acupuncture
Low energy shock wave therapy.
Vacuum pump.
 

Testosterone: 
Yoga and meditation.
Bupropion: this antidepressant works by increasing levels of dopamine and norepinephrine, two hormones essential to arousal. 
 

Mediterranean diet
Viagra: for those whose sexual dysfunction is related to taking antidepressants.

Usually we don't prescribe Primolute N for more than one week. Now you have taken it for 15 days, usually no serious side effects but may cause acne, breast pain, headache etc. There is no harm in delaying cycle as we sometimes prescribe drugs to stop periods for even 6 months. Son, don't worry

Hi lybrate user, it is not clear from the description whether you were still bleeding when you had intercourse after 3 weeks of medical abortion. Chances of conceiving are less, but can still occur.
