My sister is suffering from incontinence since childhood and has not yet recovered. The problem actually arises when she laughs and this has led her to stay away from fun activities. She is ashamed when we ask her to consult a doctor. Our physiotherapist has suggested her some exercises but she says it never works. Are there any other solutions?

It is a behavioral problem like sleep walking, during her sleep, she passes urine presuming going to toilet. Do not make her conscious, improve her general health, do not give her liquids 2 hours before sleeping, wake her up in night and tell her to pass urine. Reassure her that there are many girls who suffer like her but are cured minus medicines. Never make fun of her.

Did You Know These Shocking Foods Kill Sex Drive In Men?
Foods that kill sex drive in men

Do you wonder why suddenly at times you go on a zero sex drive? it could happen even when your chemistry with your partner is fine, nothing is heaving on your mind, and you are otherwise healthy too. Only you just don't feel like having sex. This might have to do with what you are eating.
Here are some of the foods which can kill your sex drive.

1. Diet soda - while staying fit is an excellent idea, drinking diet sodas with artificial sweeteners can be absolute mood killers as they directly affect the levels of serotonin, a hormone which assists you in reaching the zone.
2. Caffeine - it certainly increases stamina for sex. However, for someone who is already nervous, this would mean increased anxiety which in turn would lower the sex drive. Overdose of coffee is known to increase one's stress hormone levels, too, affecting one's sex drive.
3. Chocolate - this is surprising since chocolate is known as an aphrodisiac. A study has shown that since it stimulates love and euphoria, it might also suppress, at times the testosterone levels in the body.
4. Mint - while mint is a good way to clear your breath after a meal, the menthol in it is also known to lower the testosterone. This lowers your sex drive.
5. Popcorn - when popcorn is made in the microwave and eaten, it could totally kill the mood for sex, especially in men. Research suggests that the bag's lining has chemicals which kill sex drive and in the long term can also cause prostrate problems.
6. Cheese - if made of cow's milk, cheese contains a lot of synthetic hormones which are known to mess with human body's natural hormone production that primarily includes testosterone and estrogen.

Gram Flour (Besan) - How it is Beneficial for Your Skin?

Gram Flour (Besan) - How it is Beneficial for Your Skin?

We all crave for that glowing, healthy skin which is easy to maintain and are willing to shell our exorbitant amounts to achieve the same. However, we need not look far. There are some magical products right in our homes which can do the trick for us, without spending time or money. Besan (gram flour) is one such wonder.

Read on to know some of its most significant benefits.

  1. Anti-tanning effects: If you have just come back from a holiday and are wondering how to get rid of the tan from your face, then try this. Mix a couple of spoons of besan with some lime, yogurt and a pinch of turmeric. Leave it on your face for a while and wash it off to see your skin become radiant and glowing. In about a week’s time, your tan would be a thing of the past.
  2. Decrease oily feeling: For people with oily or greasy skin, a simple face pack made by mixing gram flour with raw milk or yogurt applied for 20 minutes will do wonders. It can even be mixed with rose water and honey and used as a face pack. The residues and the dirt that oily skin tends to accumulate would be gone.
  3. Anti-acne agent: While acne continues to remain one of the dreadful skin issues, the besan comes to the rescue here too. Mixed with sandalwood powder, milk and turmeric powder, besan can be used to fight pimples. Apply it on the skin and dry it off once it dries.
  4. Anti-sagging effect: Whip up an egg white and add gram flour to it and apply it on the face for about 30 minutes. The skin will be firmer and will have a youthful glow.
  5. For instant fairness: When you have a function coming up or have to go out and do not have time for a visit to the parlour, head to the kitchen. Take the besan flour and add orange peel powder if available or just add milk cream. Use circular motions to help it soak into the skin. When you wash it after about 20 to 30 minutes, the skin will be soft, supple, and flowing.
  6. Controls unwanted hair: With regular use, besan mixed with fenugreek seeds (methi) or sandalwood powder, lime, and milk cream helps control unwanted hair growth.

For those who remember, besan is the only cleaning agent used, which leaves them with soft, supple skin which is free of oiliness and unwanted hair. So, what are you waiting for? The best art is that this can be used regularly without having to step out of the house while continuing to do the regular household chores. If you wish to discuss about any specific skin problem, you can consult a specilized dermatologist and ask a free question.

My wife is pregnant. She is feeling hungry. But unable to eat anything. She is also feeling nausea, debility.
Nausea, vomiting, morning sickness, tiredness, lethargy are common because of hormonal changes in pregnancy. Let her take small frequent food whatever she likes except cheese, papaya & junk foods.

If menses r irregular since long then it should be investigated properly. Ultrasound, fsh, lh, tsh and prolactin blood tests should be done asap to find out the exact cause for irregular menses. Your weight is 90kg so you r likely to be suffering from pcod, which can be confirmed on ultrasound.

I am getting married next month so wanted to know the better contraceptive options as my periods are irregular.
If you have irregular periods the best contraceptive would be condom. Any type of contraceptive pill will further increase the irregularity if periods because it contains hormones.

As she is very young I would advice a course of antibiotics first and if needed vaginal swabs and endometrial samples for evaluating the nature of infection first.

Is fibroadenoma will change to breast cancer? Is fibroadenoma gives back & shoulder pain? Please answer me.

Is fibroadenoma will change to breast cancer? Is fibroadenoma gives back & shoulder pain? Please answer me.
Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. Well, if its a simple fibroadenoma, the risk of breast cancer is slightly higher than those of women with no breast changes. For complex fibroadenoma, however, the risk of breast cancer is slightly more than that in case of simple fibroadenoma. Fibroadenoma would not cause any back/ shoulder pain. Hope this clarifies. Sincerely

Hi, heavy or prolonged menstrual bleeding, which is also called menorrhagia, can occur to any menstruating woman. It can also cause serious health problem such as iron-deficiency anemia. In order to stop heavy menstrual bleeding naturally, you can try different types of home remedies and making changes to your diet. Home remedies: -cinnamon, which you may use in cooking or baking, is also a well-known spice that may provide relief from heavy bleeding. Incorporate more cinnamon into your diet or take it alone to help calm the uterus and prevent heavy bleeding. Try mixing one cup of hot water with three teaspoon of powdered cinnamon and take it every thirty minutes during your menstrual cycle. -wash 2 cups of raspberry leaves and bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Strain and enjoy one cup up to three times a day. -placing an ice pack on your abdomen may reduce bleeding (no more than 20 minutes). It may also alleviate pain and swelling. -choose healthy and nutrient dense foods such as proteins including nuts, iron rich foods like dark green leafy vegetables, and dairy products like yogurt or cheese for calcium. Green beans contain high fiber and are enriched with vitamin b, which prevents abdominal cramps. Choose breads and grains that are fortified with iron, vitamin b, fiber and protein. Eat vegetables such as broccoli, kale, sweet potatoes, and spinach to help you get iron, calcium, and vitamin c. Eat fruits such as oranges and strawberries for vitamin c. Prunes and dried apricots are a good source of iron. Medication: take hamamelis q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water every 2 hrly during the menses. And for rest of the days, take five phos. And alfaalfa tonic. Take them thrice daily for 4 weeks and revert me back. Even after taking these medication, if there is no relief in the sufferings, need to get an ultrasound (pelvis) done.

The pregnancy happens when sperms meet ovum in the fallopian tube of the female. While sperms are always deposited at every acy of coitus, the release of the ovum is a event that has no sign. Most women cannot find out when they have ovulation. Also that the ovum when released from ovary has a life span of just 24-48 hours. So any body not having sex in this ovulation period will not conceive. The best day to predict ovulation is found by the following formula. If your partner has regular periods, then she will be able to predict her menses date based on her know how. Find the expected of menses (edm) now count 14 days before it. This day is the date of the most possible ovulation. As a matter of safety consider 3 days on either side of this date, and thus you will get 6 days in each cycle where the possibility of ovulation and hence pregnancy is highest. Most women may not have regular cycles and in such the above mentioned formula may fail. Say for a girl whose menses is regular and expected on 28th april, the day of probable ovulation would be 15th april and considering 3 days on either side, the fertile period would be 12-18th april also in a woman having 12 regular periods in a year, the ovulation may not occur each cycle, but it may happen few times a year. So this is just a probability if a couple having regular sexual activity doesnot conceive in a year of their efforts, they must get treated by a gynecologist.

For conceiving your TSH level should be below 4.5 mmIU/ml. If you are taking medicine for that then the dose need to be regulated, And if not taking any medicine then need to start. So consult a physician for thyroid medication, before conceiving.
