Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) are infections that you can get from having sex with someone who already has the infection. The causes of STDs are bacteria, parasites, and viruses. These infections often do not cause any symptoms, and can still be passed unknowingly from the infected partner to the other. However, some common symptoms include genital itching, lesions, flu / fever like symptoms and feeling pain / pressure in the lower part of the stomach.
There are many kinds of STDs including Chlamydia, gonorrhea, genital herpes, syphilis and HIV.
The important thing to understand and know is that these STDs can be prevented.
3 ways of preventing STDS are:
1. Precautions before having sex
There are some things you can do to reduce your risk of contracting STDs before having sex. This include:
- Limiting the number of sexual partners
- Talking honestly with partners about your sexual history
- Getting tested, along with your partner, before having sex
- Getting timely vaccination against HPV and HBV
If you have been diagnosed with an STD you should tell your partner about it and also explicitly ask your partner if they have had an STD.
2. Practice safe sex
Use a latex condom every time you have sex and use a water-based lubricant. If your sex life involves intercourse, anal or vaginal, make up your mind to never have sex without a condom. If you or your partner is at a high risk of STDs, be consistent about barrier use during oral sex as well. Avoid sharing towels or underclothing to reduce the risk of an STD. Check the expiration date of the condom and make sure that it has an air bubble, which shows it has not been punctured. Dispose the condom properly and never reuse it.
3. Don't drink Alcohol or use drugs before having sex
It's impossible to make responsible choices about your sex life under the influence of drugs or alcohol. When you are under the influence of any one of them, you are not in your mind and are likelier to choose a partner you wouldn't have picked otherwise. In that case, you may be at a higher risk of contracting an STD. Also, if you are on birth control pills and you vomit, the pills could lose some effectiveness.
I'm putting my weight and feeling very weak in my daily routine work please suggest me which types of diet should I follow or how to boost my strength.
How to start:
If you have been practising yoga already, you can continue during your pregnancy. However, if you are planning to start yoga as a form of exercise during pregnancy, it is ideal to do so in the second trimester. Yoga can be performed once a week or every day. The duration can range from 5 to 60 minutes per session. Follow these guidelines while practising yoga:
✓ Listen to your body carefully. If you feel any discomfort, stop. You will probably need to modify each pose as your body changes.
✓ Avoid lying on your back after the first trimester; it can reduce blood circulation to the uterus.
✓ Avoid poses that stretch the muscles too much. You are more at risk for strains, pulls and other injuries right now because of the pregnancy hormone relaxin, which softens and relaxes joints and connective tissue.
✓ From the second trimester – when your centre of gravity starts to shift – do all standing poses with your heel against the wall or use a chair for support, to avoid losing your balance and risking injury to yourself or your baby. Here is the most comprehensive second trimester dos and don’ts for you to follow.
✓ While twisting, move from the shoulders and back, rather than the waist, to avoid putting pressure on your abdomen. Twist only as far as it feels comfortable – deep twists are not advisable in pregnancy. Here are three simple exercises that can boost blood circulation during pregnancy.
1. Palm tree
Imagine you are a palm tree swaying in the wind.
Benefit: This pose stretches and strengthens the torso
Stand upright, raise your arms overhead and interlock your fingers.
Now stretch slowly and gently to the right and then the left, imitating the swaying movement of a palm tree.
2. Modified triangle pose
Can you position your body in such a way that it forms three triangles?
Benefit: This pose regulates the digestive system and massages internal organs like the liver.
Stand with your feet wide apart and arms extended at shoulder level parallel to the floor.
Stretch your left hand overhead and bend down to the right side and touch your knee. Look up at your left hand.
Return to starting position and switch sides.
3. Modified forward bend
Reach forward with your hands, with a chair for support.
Benefit: This pose stretches the back and legs.
Stand tall in front of a chair.
Lift your arms and reach towards the chair; press your palms on the chair. Keep your back straight and bend from your hips. Hold.
Return to standing position.
4. Seated twist
Twist to the right and then to the left, to improve the mobility of the spine.
Benefit: This pose stretches the spine, improves digestion and relieves constipation.
Sit with your legs stretched out in front of you. Bend your right knee and take the right foot over the left knee.
Bring the left arm and elbow over the right knee. Keep your right hand behind you on the fl oor for support. Now twist your torso to the right and turn your head back.
Return to starting position and switch sides.
5. Cat-camel pose
Imitate a cat and then a camel. Arch your spine like a cat and then lift it up like the hump of a camel.
Benefit: releases spinal stress
Get down on all fours on your mat. Place your hands directly below your shoulders. Now lift your tailbone up towards the ceiling so that your lower back is concave. As you do this your head will lift up naturally towards the ceiling.
Now round your back like the hump of a camel and roll your head towards your chest. Make the movements as fluid as possible.
6. Butterfly pose
Imitate a butterfly.
Benefit: Increases mobility of the hip joints and stretches the inner thigh.
Sit with your legs outstretched on the mat. Bend your knees and bring your feet in as close as possible, towards you. Bring the soles of your feet together.
Keep your spine straight and gently move your legs down and up, resembling the movement of a butterfly as it flaps its wings.
7. The modified corpse
You need to relax in order to feel rejuvenated.
Lie on your left side; place a pillow between your legs and below your head for support.
Close your eyes and relax your mind.
To make the poses more comfortable, use blankets, pillows, cushions and chairs for support if you need them. For instance, you can perform seated positions on a folded blanket. If maintaining an erect spine is difficult, lean against a wall for support. Also, breathing the correct way during pregnancy is vital, here are a few breathing exercises you can practise for better oxygen intake.
Follow these tips while performing the yoga asanas:
• Yoga can be practised anywhere – indoors or outdoors. Just make sure it is a calm and quiet environment with adequate ventilation.
• Yoga gear should be comfortable, convenient and simple. All you need is loose, comfortable clothing and a yoga mat, rug, blanket or carpet.
• Hold each yoga pose for 10 to 60 seconds.
• Set aside a fixed time for yoga.
• If you have never tried yoga before, first learn the different poses under supervision. Start slowly and relax for 2 to 3 minutes after every asana if required.
• Yoga can be performed once a week or every day. The duration can range from 5 minutes to 60 minutes per session.
• Never force your body into a stretch or pose. Regular practice will make seemingly impossible poses more accessible.
• If you feel any pain or nausea, stop and contact your doctor immediately.

Pregnancy can be easy and smooth, while on the other hand, it might be time consuming, marred with conception difficulties all along the way. Pregnancy may seem exciting to some, whereas it can be stressful for others. Regardless of whether it is the first child you are planning or have had a successful pregnancy previously; there are some tips you need to keep in mind in order to improve fertility and give birth to a healthy child.
Some fertility boosting factors are:
These fantastic swimmers are at the very root of male fertility. Some important components which need to be taken into consideration are sperm count, sperm motility (the ability of the sperm to swim around the female reproductive tract) and morphology (shape and size of a sperm). In order to have all these parameters in check and working fine, one needs to abstain from smoking and limit alcohol consumption among many other lifestyle modifications.
Having unprotected vaginal intercourse during the woman’s fertile days in a month helps improve chances of conception.
Fertility becomes a challenge when you are either overweight or underweight. The weight of a woman affects ovulation (The release of eggs from the ovaries) and causes hormonal imbalance; factors which make it very difficult to conceive. Keep your weight levels in check and that could prove primarily essential in bettering your fertility.
Staying well nourished boosts your odds of conceiving! Make sure to include enough protein, iron, zinc, vitamin C, and vitamin D in your diet, because deficiencies in these nutrients have been linked to lengthened menstrual cycles (and therefore less frequent ovulation) and a higher risk of early miscarriage. Consult gynaecologist if you should take a daily multivitamin supplement. And be sure to eat protein-rich foods, such as meat, fish, low-fat dairy products, eggs, and beans.
Beware of STDs or Sexually Transmitted Diseases. One is the most prone to STDs of any kind if he/she happens to engage in unprotected sexual intercourse; having a number of sexual partners just ups the chances of getting afflicted by STD. Protected vaginal intercourse helps prevent STDs, thus enhancing fertility and subsequently, chances of conception.
According to several studies, the lubricant one chooses surprisingly plays a significant role in determining fertility. Not all lubricants boost fertility and sperm motility (sperm count). Baby oil or egg whites are a few good examples of such lubricants.
While a limited amount of caffeine consumption is good, overdoing it might spoil and hamper fertility. Limit caffeine intake and keep it within a level of 200-250mg a day.
Smoking, besides playing havoc with every organ in the body, affects the reproductive organs and thus fertility. In men, it leads to reduced sperm count and in women, it causes DNA damage. Stub the bud right now and never get back to it.
Certain toxic chemicals can lead to female and male infertility. So it is advisable that you stay away from chemicals such as pesticides, organic solvents and lead, the primary toxins which pose a severe threat to fertility.
- Exercising regularly can never go wrong. It gives you the strength and stamina, boosting your overall health. However, vigorous exercises, especially when you are trying to conceive, will do you no good. It might adversely lead to the suppression of certain hormones such as progesterone (pregnancy stimulating hormone) and might affect ovulation, hence affecting fertility. Aim at a regular 20 minutes session of light exercises; mild cardiovascular exercises such as walking can work wonders, especially in such circumstances.

शादी के बाद न केवल सामाजिक पारिवारिक, मानसिक जिम्मेदारियां बदलती है बल्कि सबसे ज्यादा बदलती है शरीरिक जिम्मेदारी। चाहे वो घर और बाहर के काम हों या फिर पति पत्नी के शरीरिक संबन्ध। और कई बार कुछ जिम्मेदारियों के साथ कुछ घटनाएं होती है जो हमें कभी खुश तो कभी परेशान कर देती हैं।अब जैसे शादी के बाद मां बनने की खुशी सातवें आसमान पर पहुंचा देता है तो वहीं इर्रेगुलर पीरियड जैसा बदलाव टेंशन और तकलीफ से मिला देता है। हालांकि अनियमित पीरियड्स होना एक मेडिकल कारण है लेकिन शादी के बाद इस समस्या के कारण और उपाय की जानकारी होना जरूरी है जिससे इससे निजात पाया जा सके।
शादी के बाद महिला के जीवन में आने वाले भावनात्मक और हार्मोनल बदलाव जिसमें कुछ अधिक चिंता की बात नहीं है अगर यह सामान्य तौर पर होता है तो पीरियड्स में होने वाला बदलाव एक तरह से संकेत होता है की मासिक धर्म को नियंत्रित करने वाले हारमोंस बैलेंस नहीं हैं।
अब समस्या है तो समाधान और उसकी वजह को समझें भी। तो आइए जानते हैं कि क्योंकि होती है अनियमित पीरियड्स की वजह और उपाय।
1. गर्भ निरोधक दवाएं खाना
शादी के बाद सामान्यतः महिला गर्भनिरोधक उपायों का इस्तेमाल करती है और दवाइयां और अन्य मेडिकल साधन इस्तेमाल करती है जिसकी वजह से हार्मोनल संतुलन बिगड़ जाता है और उसे सामान्य होने में वक़्त लगता है और यह भी आपकी पीरियड्स की अनियमितता, संख्या और अवधि को प्रभावित करता है।
उपाय – शादी के बाद परिवार नियोजन यानी फैमिली प्लांनिग करना और अनवांटेड प्रेगनेंसी से बचना बहुत जरूरी है पर इसके लिए पिल्स खाने के बजाय अन्य बचाव के तरीके अपनाएं।
2. हार्मोनल बदलाव
हॉर्मोनल चेंजेस शादी के बाद सामान्य है लेकिन समय पर डॉक्टर की राय नहीं लेने पर कई तरह की समस्याएं सामने आ सकती है जैसे कि गर्भाशय में गांठे होना और मासिक धर्म का अनियमित होना जिसकी वजह से गर्भ धारण करने में समस्या हो सकती है।
उपाय – जैसे ही आप अनियमित पीरियड की समस्या का सामना करें तो फौरन डॉक्टर को खबर करें।
3. डिसबैलेंस वजन
शादी के बाद वजन को लेकर भी समस्या हो सकती है और साथ ही कई कारणों से उत्पन हुई हार्मोनल अनियमितता की समस्या से निजात पाने में शरीर को समय लगता है और शरीर की यही प्रकिया आपके पीरियड्स की नियमितता को प्रभावित कर सकती है।
उपाय – शादी के बाद अक्सर हम खुदकी मेंटेनेन्स का ख्याल नही करते पर इस आदत से बचें और हेल्दी फाइड टाइम टेबल से सही मात्रा में ही खाएं जिससे आपका वजन रहे कंट्रोल में।
ज्यादा और डिप्रेशन या थकान की वजह से भी मासिक धर्म के नियमित होने पर भी बुरा असर पड़ता है न केवल वो आपके मासिक धर्म के अनियमित होने के लिए जिम्मेदार है बल्कि साथ ही यह वजन बढ़ने जैसी समस्या से भी दो चार होना पड़ सकता है।
उलाय - तनाव से हरसंभव बचने की कोशिश करें। जितना पॉसिबल हो पॉजिटिव और खुश रहने की कोशिश करें।
5. अल्कोहल का सेवन
अल्कोहल लेने और धुम्रपान से भी मासिक धर्मं अनियमित हो सकते है। दारू पल भर का नशा ही नहीं बल्कि गहराई से शरीर पर लंबे समय के लिए शरीर पर प्रभाव पड़ता है।
उपाय- शादी के पहले या शादी के बाद हमेशा नशे और अन्य मादक पदार्थो से जितना हो सके दूरी बनाये रखें। इसका नुकसान हमारे सामने बड़ी समस्या बनकर खड़ी हो सकती है।
6. अनहेल्दी लाइफस्टाइल
कई अनियमित पीरियड की प्रॉब्लम हमारी अनियमित और असंतुलित जीवनचर्या केई वजह से होती है। शादी के बाद अनियमित और असंतुलित लाइफस्टाइल अपनाने वाली महिलाओं की तादाद ज्यादा है।
उपाय- कभी भी किसी भी हाल में सही समय पर स्वच्छ और स्वस्थ आहार लें। नियमित वर्कआउट करें। शरीर में मिनरल्स, प्रोटीन, विटामिन, कैल्सियम युक्त पदार्थों का सेवन करें।
कीमोथेरेपी और अन्य कई कारणों से भी अनियमितता हो सकती है एक दो बार की परेशानी को आप चाहे तो अनदेखा कर सकते है लेकिन लगातार परेशानी होने के बाद आप किसी अच्छे विशेषज्ञ से इस बारे में राय लेकर उचित उपचार की व्यवस्था कर लें क्योंकि सही देखरेख और उचित टेस्ट के बाद आप निर्धारित कारणों को जानकर उचित उपचार ले सकते है और आने वाली परेशानियो से बच सकते है।
