6 Tips to Avoid Sexually Transmitted Diseases in Men!

6 Tips to Avoid Sexually Transmitted Diseases in Men!

When it comes to sexually transmitted diseases or STDs, there is no doubt that prevention is better than cure. Contrary to popular belief, STDs do not spread only through intercourse. STDs can also spread by skin to skin contact. The easiest way to prevent STDs is by abstaining from sex or being in a monogamous relationship with an uninfected person. This may not be possible for many men. Hence, let's take a look at alternatives to prevent sexual diseases.

1. Get tested - Most STDs can be easily tested for and treated. Thus, it is a good idea to regularly get yourself tested if you have more than one sexual partner. Your partner should ideally also get tested for STDs. However, remember that herpes and the human papillomavirus do not show up on STD tests.

2. Avoid sex under the influence of alcohol or drugs - When inebriated, you may not make the best decisions. Decisions made at this stage are usually rash and not thought out. Thus, you may forget to ask the other person if she has been tested for STDs.

3. Vaccinations - Vaccinations can be effective against some types of STDs. The HPV vaccine can be given to boys as young as 11 years until they turn 26. Other vaccines that protect men from STDs are Hepatitis A and hepatitis B vaccinations.

4. Use condoms - Condoms are the only way to protect yourself against the transference of STDs during intercourse. A condom should be used even if the woman is using an alternate form of birth control. Never reuse a condom and do not use an oil based lubricants with a condom. Before using a condom always check to ensure the condom is not punctured in any way and that it is within the expiry period. A condom should be used for oral, vaginal and anal sex. However, this does not prevent the transmission of STDs like syphilis, herpes and HPV.

5. Communicate with your partner - It is a good idea to share your sexual history with your partner. This creates an environment where you can discuss getting tested for STDs before engaging in intercourse. You must reach an explicit agreement about what forms of intercourse both of you are comfortable with. It is also a good idea to discuss a possible monogamous relationship with your partner.

6. Circumcision - Male circumcision is said to reduce a man's risk of contracting STDs like HIV, genital herpes and genital HPV.

Check with a obstetrician she will recommend some scan and test to find you baby is healthy or not. Generally the doctor expect 600 gm to 1 kg weight increase every month. But it is not the compulsary rule. If the foetus weight and growth is normal inside the womb then you need not worry about it. If yoy are not satisfied with the consulting obstetrician then consult some other until you and your wife get satisfied with thier approach.

Hello, PCOS or pcod s a problem in which a woman's hormones are out of balance. It can cause problems with your periods and make it difficult to get pregnant. PCOS also may cause unwanted changes in the way you look. If it isn't treated, over time it can lead to serious health problems, such as diabetes and heart disease. The most common symptoms are: Acne. Weight gain and trouble losing weight. Extra hair on the face and body. Thinning hair or even hair loss on scalp. Irregular periods. Often women with PCOS have fewer than nine periods a year. Some women have no periods. Others have very heavy bleeding. Fertility problems. Many women who have PCOS have trouble getting pregnant (infertility), depression. Regular exercise, healthy foods, and weight control are the key treatments for PCOS. Treatment (hormonal) can reduce unpleasant symptoms and help prevent long-term health problems. Try to fit in moderate activity and/or vigorous activity often. Brisk Walking, jogging, dance or aerobics are great exercise that most people can do. Eat heart-healthy foods. This includes lots of vegetables, fruits, nuts, beans, and whole grains. It limits foods that are high insaturated fat, such as meats, cheeses, and fried foods. Most women who have PCOS can benefit from losing weight. Even losing 5 kg may help get your hormones in balance, regulate your menstrual cycle and can make you ovulate.

You can get non invasive cardiac ct scan of heart which is as effective as angiography but not traumatic, less time in hospital-only few hours & costs less -8000/- only. Good to know about your progress after stent. Keep it up. Scan is to know the present status of heart.

This could be because of hormonal imbalance. Condition is called irregular ripening of the endometrium because of proesterone defficiency. Adding progesterone for last 5 days (21-25 days) may help you.

Namaskar. Agar apko koi bhi samasya hai, koi bhi gambhir samasya hai jiska rog apko pata nahi chal pa raha hai ki ye hua kese aur ap usko theek nahi kar pa rahe hai. Aur agar apko kisi bhi tareeke ka asaadhya rog hai jese ki Thyroid, joint pain etc to mostly log ye bolte hai ki Thyroid ka thyrocon goli chalegi he chalegi, wo rukegi nahi aur uski quantity (mg) wo badhegi he badhegi. Aisa nahi hota hai. Ayurved me hum iska safal ilaaj within few months kar he dete hai. Thyroid hua, asthma hua, joint pain hua, constipation, piles ki dikkat ka Vaidic chikitsa bohot safal ilaaj kar rahi hai

Ayurved apki har marz ko jadd se khatam karne ki taakat rakhti hai. Aapko sahi jagah ki pehchan honi chahiye asli dawai jo asar kar rahi hai. Kyuki ayurved dheere kaam karta hai, ye matra bhranti hai. Ayurved kabhi dheere kam nahi karta agar sahi dawaiyo ka combination diya jaae to ayurved allopathy se bhi zada tez asar dikha sakta hai. Koi bhi dawai apko 1-2 mahine ke ander ander accha asar dikhadegi ki apko ye dawai kaam kar rahi hai.

Beauty oil ek humara hota hai. Jese ki agar apko stretch marks , pigmentation, kaale ghere, jhaaiya, black heads, mhu pe kisi bhi tarah ke patches aa chuke hai, pregnancy me stretch marks badh chuke hai. Beauty oil humne itna gazab ka formula banaya hua hai, ayurved ki proper herbal jadibootiyo se bana hua ki wo apke saae skin ke marks hata deta hai. Aur apko deta hai ek bedaag gora nikhar, ekdam apke chehre ko saaf kardeta hai.

Piles ki humari dawaiyo ka hum bohot baar zikar karte hai. Ek mahine ka humara set hai. Logo ko 20-25 saalo se piles hoi hai. Hum iska upchaar bohot he sahi prakaar se de rahe hai apko. Piles apki within one month theek hojaegi. Pehle he 5-10 dino me apko uska asar dekhne ko mil jaega. Apko pata chal jaega ki han ye dawai asar kar rahi hai. Apko satisfaction usi level pe hojatai hia, usi point of time pe hojati hai. Aap fir us dawai ko ek month tak continue karenge, apki piles ki dikkat humesha ke liye jadd se theek hojaegi.

Aur na he keval piles ki, agar apko anya koi dikkat hai, jese ki joint pain, balgum wali khasi, asthma ki dikkat bohot logo ko rehti hai. Ayurved ek jadibootiyo ka khazaana hai. Aap aaiye, ek baar miliye, apke saare rog theek hojaenge. Balgum, khasi, zukham agar kisi ko ban raha hai, hum apko iska ek mahine ke ander accha result dedenge. 3-4 mahine me hum apke asthma ko theek kardenge humesha ke liye.

Agar apko kuch bhi samasya hai, ap humse consult kar sakte hai. Lybrate pe hum apke liye 24*7 open hai. Aap kisi bhi tarah se humse mil sakte hai.

Ayurvedic treatment For Dengue Fever

PG Diploma in Emergency Medicine Services (PGDEMS), Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), MD - Alternate Medicine
Ayurveda, Ghaziabad
Ayurvedic treatment For Dengue Fever
Ayurvedic treatment For Dengue Fever 

~ Ayurvedic Name: Dandak Jwara

~ Other Names: Dandy fever,Three-day fever, Breakbone fever.

~What's is a Dengue Fever?

1-Dengue fever is a disease caused by one of a number of viruses.
2-These viruses are spread by the bite of mosquitoes and are transmitted to the human body.
3-The disease is very common in tropical and subtropical areas of the world (including some islands in the Caribbean, Mexico, most countries of South and Central America, the Pacific, Asia and parts of tropical Africa). In these locations, the dengue fever arbovirus is endemic, meaning that the dengue fever virus naturally and consistently lives in that location and the virus are not carried by mosquitoes.

~Who gets Dengue Fever?

Dengue fever can occur to people of all ages. Children usually have a milder disease than adults.

~What's are the causes of Dengue Fever ?

When a mosquito carrying dengue fever virus bites a healthy human, the virus travels in the blood stream and then starts multiplying itself in the whole body. Dengue fever is not contagious, which means one person cannot pass it directly to another.

Dengue fever is also a type of arbovirus, which is short for arthropod-borne virus. The main virus causing dengue fever is carried by a mosquito named "Aedes aegypti" which transmits the virus to humans through its bite. An organism that carries a disease, without actually developing the disease itself, is called a vector. Aedes aegypti works as a vector for transmitting the disease.

An another cause for dengue fever is a virus name flaviviruses. More than 100 million cases of dengue fever occur every year in a whole world. A little bit percent of these develop into dengue hemorrhagic fever. It is possible for a traveler who has returned to the United States to pass the infection to someone who has not traveled. Risk factors for dengue hemorrhagic fever include having antibodies to dengue virus from prior infection and being younger than 12, female, or Caucasian.

~What's are the symptoms of Dengue Fever?

The symptoms of dengue fever are generally seen in around three days after transition of virus to humans through mosquitoes bite and after that patient starts feeling very weak. Dengue fever, however, is not a fatal disease.

Dengue fever may vary on an individual basis for each patient. One should always remember before looking for treatment that over-medication in dengue fever is likely to lead to further complications and some times it may also turn slight serious. A mild attack of the fever may pass off without having to administer any medicine.

~Some of the main symptoms of dengue fever are listed below:

Dengue fever usually starts suddenly with a rapidly climbing high fever, that's why the temperature in dengue fever is called a 'saddleback' type temperature.
severe headaches.
Retro-orbital pain behind the eye.
nausea & vomiting.
loss of appetite.
rashes develop on the feet or legs 3 to 4 days after the beginning of the fever.
Swelling and pain in muscles and joints.
The joint pain in the body has given dengue fever the name that is "breakbone fever".The common symptoms of dengue fever may go in around 10 days, but complete recovery from dengue fever can take more than a month.

~Herbal Treatments for Dengue Fever

There is no specific treatment for the treatment of classical dengue fever, and like most people you will also recover completely within 2 weeks. For severe dengue symptoms, including shock and coma, early and aggressive emergency treatment with fluid and electrolyte replacement can be lifesaving.

Some treatment options that may enhance the curing of classical dengue fever are listed:

1) Mix 360 mg of Shunthi Churna with 125 mg of Hinguleshwar and now take this mixture at least 4 times daily, you may take with tea or hot water. If case the temperature of the patient rises beyond 104°F (40°C), then you may apply cold pad, on the forehead till the temperature subsides.

2) Another ayurvedic medicine used for treatment of dengue fever is tulsi (holy basil). Medicinal properties of tulsi are very useful in ayurvedic therapy. The leaves of tulsi are used to produce soothing effect on the nervous system. Tulsi leaves strengthen the stomach and induce copious perspiration.

3) Amrutharistam,Amruthottaram kashayam,sudarsanam gulika,Pachanamrutham kashayam can be given for treatment.

If your cycle is of 28 days (1st day to be counted on the day menstrual flow starts) the 14th day bears the maximum chances of getting pregnant. On the both sides of 14th day chances of conceiving gradually decreases with minimum chance (not zero) near 1st and 28th day of cycle.

Pain before and during menses is common. If the pain is tolerable and does not hamper her work schedule in anyway then would suggest no medicine is needed. If she is losing work days because of the pain then she needs to be treated for her dysmenorrhea. Ask her to increase her water intake and protein intake by including peanuts, green peas in her diet especially before menses. Warm fomentation of the area might help.
