Yes this condition is called as erectile dysfunction, and it's also called loosing of erection or not able to sustain erection for long, it's because of venous leakage which means the blood inside the penis after erection starts to flow back leading to loosing of erection, this condition is quite common as per your age, do you have diabetes and bp, how is your cholesterol level, how is your desire or mood level, consult me private for further details and for result oriented treatment

Your problem is due to anxiety so relax. Premature Ejaculation is very common and is usually not associated with any disease but may be due to anxiety. Most often it is a chronic problem and you have to take medicines off and on. Also there are exercises to control it. You can learn to control PE by doing this exercise- pull your muscles that you pull at the end of urination for few seconds then release repeat this several times daily. Another is stop-start technique: when you feel that you are going to ejaculate stop the sexual stimulation and divert your mind, the penis will relax, after sometime start the stimulation again and repeat the procedure. Over few months you will gradually increase your ejaculation time.

5 practical ways to manage constipation

Constipation is one of the most common health problems. Unhealthy eating practices, inadequate sleep, sedentary lifestyle and stressful life are some of the common triggers for constipation.

Symptoms:
Symptoms of constipation include two or less than two bowel movements in a week, hard and dry stools, bloating and feeling of fullness. In severe cases of constipation, you may also have small amount of blood in your stool due to bleeding hemorrhoids.

Causes:
Some of the common causes of constipation are lack of fiber rich diet, lack of exercises and physical activity, immobility due to age and illness and overuse and persistent use of laxatives. Constipation may also be another symptom of health disorders such as hypothyroidism, diabetes, hypercalcemia and irritable bowel syndrome.

Ways to manage constipation:
Here are five effective ways to prevent and treat constipation:

1. Exercise regularly
-follow an exercise regimen which may include a combination of several activities such as weight bearing exercise, muscle strengthening exercises, running, walking, jogging and physical exercises.

- these exercises stimulate the bowel movements regularly and help to keep the body healthy.

- brisk walking and aerobic exercises has also been found to stimulate and aid the bowel movement.

- if you have an option of taking the elevator or the stairs, opt for stairs. This will keep you mobile during your work hours.

2. Increase dietary fiber
- correction of the dietary intake is the key to prevent constipation. It is recommended to take naturally available fibrous vegetables and fruits than to aid the diet with supplementary fiber.

- increase the intake of fiber rich vegetables such as beans, bran cereals, brown rice, raw fruits and vegetables in your daily diet. It is recommended to have close to 20-35 grams of fiber daily.

- make sure you add salads to your meals. Include sprouts, carrots, leafy vegetables and fruits in your salads.

- in case of consistent constipation, avoid intake of processed foods and beverages such as cheese, dairy products, meat and packaged foods

3. Increase fluid intake
- drink water (6-8 glasses) throughout the day. This will improve the bowel movement significantly.

warm water during the daytime also helps in increasing the excretion of stools during constipation.

4. Opt for lifestyle changes
- changes in the lifestyle such as having a balanced diet, regular exercises and optimum sleep can significantly help constipation.

- fix a regular time during the day for the bowel movement. It helps the body to follow a routine.

5. Try natural remedies
- in case of chronic constipation, take herbal laxatives such as isabgol and triphala with warm water before going to sleep. They will improve bowel movement and aid the excretion process

- studies suggest that castor oil, due to its laxative properties, was found to relieve constipation significantly. Due to its instant effects, it is recommended that it is not consumed orally before going to bed. Instead it is advised to take it in the daytime.

- there are broadly two types of herbal stimulants (bulk forming stimulants and stimulant laxatives) for relieving constipation.

- commonly used bulk forming laxatives include, fenugreek, flaxseeds and barley. Commonly used stimulant herbs include aloe and senna. However, these herbal laxatives are advised to be used in less potency. Therefore one must consult a doctor before opting for these remedies.

In case your symptoms persist, you can try some over the counter laxatives. However make sure your body does not become dependent on these options. Consistent use of laxatives can deplete the food off essential nutrients in severe cases, consult a doctor who can further evaluate the problem and suggest medications. Stay healthy, stay happy!

7 things VIRGIN MEN need to know about having sex

No matter your definition of male virginity, one fact still remains that those who have not had sex before using believe some random myths about that most pleasurable physical-cum-emotional activity.

Are there virgin men?

You could argue either way – but one would first have to decide if being a virgin means only never having had sex with a woman or it also includes never having masturbated too.

Anyway, no matter your definition of male virginity, one fact still remains that those who have not had sex before using believe some random myths about that most pleasurable physical-cum-emotional activity.

It will not be a lie to say that sex is one of the best things one could experience, especially if it’s with a person one has an emotional connection with.

Health experts have even proven that sex is good for a person’s general wellbeing, meaning it is actually recommended to have sex…frequently too.

Well, if you are one of those that have not experienced the joys of sex, here are 7 things you should know before trying it…

Don’t expect to have 1-hour long erection – the average erection lasts only between 3-5 minutes. So all those men you see having sex for hours in porn videos are not ‘normal’. Some are edited footages while some are on performance enhancers, some of which are harmful

A double condom will not give double protection – wearing two condoms to have sex will not increase your protection against diseases. In fact, the use of two condoms is a risk because the friction between the two can cause a tear and spill the sperm

There is no time when you can have unprotected sex without the risk of STD or pregnancy – many are fooled by the myth that a woman in her cycle will not get pregnant... The truth however is that there are lower risks, but she still could get pregnant

Your penis size is not as important as your skill – if you don’t have a micropenis which is less than 3 inches, then your penis is okay. All those men you see in porn videos with humongous penises are abnormal. Just learn to use what you have and you’ll be okay

It is normal to have erectile problems on your first attempt – your first sexual encounter may not be as wonderful as you have dreamt it would be. As a matter of fact, many people have terrible first attempt, with weak erection and premature ejaculation occurring frequently

Plenty foreplay is always good – don’t be pressured into jumping right into sex when the opportunity come. It is best to let your body go slow and approach sex with less pressure. Too much rush may lead to disappointment

Masturbation is not a bad thing – don’t let people fool you that masturbation is unhealthy. Experts note that it is a healthy way to release your sexual tension and refreshes your semen, reduces stress lowers risk of prostate cancer. It can however become a serious problem where it becomes an addiction

The best thing you can do for yourself when you want to have sex the first time is to not try to impress yourself or your partner.
Be more exploratory than conquering and be certain to have a condom in the mix.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. There is nothing to worry or to be panic. First time sex or the initial attempts of sex could be painful mainly because of lack of elasticity in your vagina. Secondly, most of the times, you will be anxious about the initial sex and therefore, the elasticity may not work. Ask your boy friend to have at least 15 minutes of foreplay. You can feel the arousal and readiness of your vagina for insertion. Then only allow insertion of penis. Take care.

I am suffering from fever from 2 days. What should I do?

I am suffering from fever from 2 days. What should I do?
Fever is not considered medically significant until body temperature is above 100.4 F (38 C). Fever serves as one of the body's natural defences against bacteria and viruses which cannot live at a higher temperatures. Also, the body's defence mechanisms seem to work more efficiently at a higher temperature -Fevers of 104 F (40 C) or higher may be dangerous and demand immediate treatments like: -Acetaminophen (dolo-650 mg) twice or thrice can be used to lower a fever . Aspirin should not be used for fever in children/ adolescents or during a viral illness. -Wear loose fitting clothes and don’t overdress. Overdressing can cause temperature to rise further. -Tepid water (85 F [30 C]) bathsmay help bring down a fever. -The body should be cooled with a wet sponge. -A fever can cause severe dehydration. Drink plenty of fluids.. Have citrus fruits, particularly Vitamin C rich ones like mausami,Amla juice etc. -Take light and easily digestible home cooked meals .avoid outside food -Wash hands frequently with soap and water especially after returning from public places or public transport. -Further therapy depends on the cause of fever like urinary infection/typhoid or malaria/dengue infection and the accompanying symptoms that need to be investigated and treated accordingly
