I am a 62 year old female. Since past 2-3 days I am feeling heaviness on both sides of my forehead (temple area) only when I bend down. The heaviness is ONLY when I bend, not otherwise. I do not feel dizziness, pain and I do not seem to have any cold or cough. I have blood pressure problem for which I take medication. Does this need any further investigation?

Because of Pyria it can bleed. Brush your tooth twice in a day, properly. Wash after eating food. Atleast once in a year visit dentist for scaling treatment & for regular check-up.

This is her 2nd pregnancy.
Yes sex can be practice during pregnancy. After 5 months of pregnancy one needs to change the position of male partner. Intercourse can be practiced in male standing position or sideways position. Male partner should not lie on the tummy or growing fetus.

Painful Intercourse

Sexologist, Bangalore
Painful Intercourse

Treatment for painful intercourse:

Dyspareunia is painful sexual intercourse due to medical or psychological causes. The pain can primarily be on the external surface of the genitalia, or deeper in the pelvis upon deep pressure against the cervix. It can affect a small portion of the vulva or vagina or be felt all over the surface. Understanding the duration, location, and nature of the pain is important in identifying the causes of the pain.

Numerous physical, psychological, and social or relationship causes can contribute to pain during sexual encounters. 

Underlying causes determine treatment. Many women experience relief when physical causes are identified and treated. 

The treatment for pain with intercourse depends on what is causing the pain. After proper diagnosis one or more treatments for specific causes may be necessary.

For pain due to yeast or fungal infections, a clinician may prescribe mycogen cream (nystatin and triamcinolone acetonide), which treats both a yeast infection and associated painful inflammation and itching because it contains both an antifungal and a steroid.
For pain thought due to post-menopausal vaginal dryness, estrogen treatment can be used.
For women with diagnostic criteria for endometriosis, medications or surgery are possible options.
In addition, the following may reduce discomfort with intercourse:

Both of you shave the pubic region regularly.
Use vaginal vibrator.

Also, add pleasant, sexually exciting experiences to your regular interactions, such as bathing together (in which the primary goal is not cleanliness), or mutual caressing without intercourse. In couples where a woman is preparing to receive vaginal intercourse, such activities tend to increase both natural lubrication and vaginal dilation, both of which decrease friction and pain. Prior to intercourse, oral sex may relax and lubricate the vagina.
Apply water-soluble sexual or surgical lubricant during intercourse. Discourage petroleum jelly. Lubricant should be liberally applied (two tablespoons full) to both the penis and the orifice. A folded bath towel under the receiving partner's hips helps prevent spillage on bedclothes.
Ask your partner to control the insertion by her hand.
For those who have pain on deep penetration because of pelvic injury or disease, recommend a change in coital position to one with less penetration. In women receiving vaginal penetration: maximum vaginal penetration is achieved when the receiving woman lies on her back with her pelvis rolled up off the bed, compressing her thighs tightly against her chest with her calves over the penetrating partner's shoulders. Minimal penetration occurs when a receiving woman lies on her back with her legs extended flat on the bed and close together while her partner's legs straddle hers.

Itchy scalp, tell me only home remedies Will my fallen hairs grow again Is vatika shampoo is good Home remedies only ...
itchy scalp might be due to dandruff or any skin infection/skin disease. plz consult once in detail for this complaint , till follow these things. A person loses about 50 to 100 hairs on an average every day. Some people lose much more than that, leading to thinning of hair. This lowers the self esteem and perceived attractiveness of the person. Fortunately, hair loss can be arrested and the earlier it is done, better is the outcome. If hair loss is in excess, then there is a chance to become bald, which can lower down your confidence, but no need to worry as hair transplantation is a permanent solution for baldness. Coconut oil helps eliminate dandruff due to its antifungal properties. It also moisturizes dry scalp and provides relief from itching. 1. Take some coconut oil and mix half the amount of lemon juice in it. 2. Rub it on your scalp and massage for a few minutes. 3. Wash your hair after at least 20 minutes. 4. Follow this remedy two to three times a week. Unhealthy hair habits can cause hair loss. Common culprits for thinning of hair are: 1)Brushing vigorously:- Brushing your hair aggressively puts a lot of pressure on the hair fiber, causing the cuticle to flake and fall away. Combing wet hair is not advisable as it can cause excessive pulling and breakage. 2)Tight ponytails and braids:- Tying your hair in tight ponytails and braids can lead to thinner hair as these techniques cause hair traction. Due to traction large amount of hair gets damaged and may fall out. Sometimes the damages caused by hair traction are permanent. 3) Unbalanced diet:- Well balanced and nourished diet promotes healthy hair. Protein repairs, strengthens and boosts cell growth. Iron and zinc aids in the growth of follicles. Eggs provide supplement to the hair as they are rich in protein and B vitamins which are necessary for growth. Plz follow above mentioned things as much as possible. Take these primary medicines to reduce dandruff and hairfall. 1)Lakshadi guggulu 500 mg twice day 2)Gandhak Rasayan vati500 mg twice day 3) bhrungraj vati 500mg twice day. Take medicines for 30 days, and stop use of market shampoo and conditioner. Instead use shikekai powder+ trifala powder for washing of hairs.(it gives very elegant result as compared to products you are using ). It will reude your hairfall and hairs will be thick, black and silky. Hope this answers your query. Feel free to consult privately for further information and treatment guidelines. Thank you.

Hello- Unsatisfied sex in females result in the expulsion of sperms out from the vagina. Talk to your partner regarding her likes and dislikes on sex. Do foreplay before sex to make your partner get aroused. Use proper lubrication during sex. These will make her feel comfortable during sex and the majority of your semen will penetrate her vaginal route.
