No it will not cause pregnancy. Unless some semen has leaked from anal opening into vagina which is very rare. So don't worry.

Hello- Lack of vaginal lubrication leads to sore vagina and internal cramps after fingering or masturbation. Improve your dietary habits, consume products rich in Omega 3 like cows ghee etc. And finger using some lubrication material (Coconut oil will be a good option). Make sure that you are fully relaxed and fit whenever you feel to discover your self. It will help you to achieve a better orgasm too.

7 Terrible Things that Happen to You When You Eat a Heavy Dinner

7 Terrible Things that Happen to You When You Eat a Heavy Dinner

Life is getting stressful day by day. Food habits are changing and so is the diet pattern. A balanced diet is becoming a highly debatable topic in these tough times. Dinner is the last meal of the day and surprisingly the most neglected one too. Though one may begin the day on a heavy note it is always advisable to end it with a light dinner. If this is not followed, your body may be seriously damaged in the process.

In fact, your body will always react to an over eaten meal, in numerous ways as listed below-

  1. 7 times more tendency to put on weight: The human body much like the mind is the most active in the morning and by the time it is night, it tends to slow down. Therefore, eating a large meal for dinner is detrimental to your health as by then the metabolism slows down and the heavy meal eaten by you is not digested rather stored as extra fat.  

  2. Acidity: People who eat a heavy dinner tend to complain a lot about gastritis and acidity related chest pain and passage of gas.  

  3. Migraine: Overeating and fat accumulation has also shown to increase chance of migraine. People generally wake up with a congested mind and clouded thoughts which can later take the form of migraine.

  4. Heart Rate Rises: One effect of overeating is the rapid rise in the heart rate. The body tries to grapple with the intake of large amount of food and as a result, the heart rate rises sharply and we tend to feel nauseated and uncomfortable.

  5. Reduced Sleep: A heavy meal at night disturbs the sleeping pattern of an individual. The brain receives maximum nourishment during sleep. If you eat a heavy meal, the blood supply to the brain is reduced and it is channelized to the stomach for digestion. Hence when people wake up in the morning they feel stressed out and tired.

  6. Depressed: It may sound incredible, but overeating at night according to doctors is not only a sign of depression, but also manifests the condition. Excess accumulation of fat leads to depression. This phenomenon is more common In women.

  7. Increased Stress: The relation between food and stress has been well established, as people under stress tend to eat more. However, it is also true that overeating at night may trigger stress too. After a bout of overeating, your body tends to feel stressed that is converted into a feeling of sluggishness on the day after. It thus becomes a cycle and the person gets caught in it. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

It's a Urinary tract infection, and you would need Antibiotics to get over with it. Also you would need to drink lots of water to flush it out.

Dear sir/ mam one day unfortunately I had protected sex with my friend 3 years back . For first time it bleeds . Now if I am getting married with some one if we participate in intercourse . Can he know that I am not virgin or again it will bleed or not .

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Bleeding during sex doesnot certify anyone as a virgin. Bleeding, if at all it occurs, during first intercourse can occur due to various reasons. It is never a documentary proof that you are a virgin. In simple words, even if a female doesnot bleed during first intercourse, she may be a virgin and even if a female bleeds, she might nit be a virgin. So you may not worry about bleeding or not bleeding at all

Ovulaion date k next day sex krne se pregnency aane ki Chance rehta hain? Patla semen se pregnency aaskti Hain?

Dear user. FERTILE PHASE is the phase of a female's menstrual cycle when an egg (ovule) is released from the ovaries. In humans, ovulation occurs about midway through the menstrual cycle, after the follicular phase. The few days surrounding ovulation (from approximately days 10 to 18 of a 28 day cycle), constitute the most fertile phase. So if you have ejaculatory sexual inter course from day 10 from the first day of period and to day 20, the chances of pregnancy are much more. There are many determinants of pregnancy. You should be sexually matured. Your partner should be sexually matured. The period of your partner should be in the fertile stage. Her egg and your sperm cells should healthy enough. Then her uterus should be capable to get conceived. If all these were satisfied, the pregnancy could be a result. Take care.

Hello- Agar sex k bad date ajati hai to pregnancy nahi ho sakti hai. Pregnancy ka main sign he menses ka puri tarah se band hona hai. So nischinta rahe, aap pregnant nahi hai.

Hi I had sex on 2nd day of my periods stops. Then I took ipill within 24 hrs. Again had sex 6 day later. Took I pill immediately. Any chance of pregnancy? Please

MBBS
Sexologist, Mumbai
There is no chance of pregnancy, but levonorgestrel in high doses can play havoc with your system. This is called emergency contraception not Cadbury gems. Moreover, you need not have taken had you known that the chances of pregnancy are almost zero when you make out in the safe period of menstrual cycle. Find more about safe period for sex at http://mydoctortells.com The thumb rule is one week beginning from the day you bleed (first day of menses) and one week prior to the first day of menses are safe days for sex. Meaning, you don't need to abuse your body with emergency contraceptive pill even if you have unprotected sex. It is smart to know about safe period. Be smart. Best wishes,

Hi lybrate-user having unprotected sex at any time of period may lead to unwanted pregnancy. When your partner misses her period, get a pregnancy test done at home after a week of missing period and proceed accordingly.

Effect Of Potatoes Consumption On Pregnancy

Post Graduate Course In Diabetology, MD - Consultant Physician
Internal Medicine Specialist, Indore
Effect Of Potatoes Consumption On Pregnancy

Pre pregnancy potato consumption and risk of gestational diabetes mellitus 

Potatoes are the third most commonly consumed food crop in the world, after rice and wheat.

About 35% of women of reproductive age (that is, aged 19-50) consume potatoes daily, accounting for 8% of daily total energy intake.

The health effects of potatoes are inconclusive, and there have been longstanding debates on the appropriate placement of potatoes in dietary guidance. Nonetheless, the dietary guidelines continue to include potatoes in the vegetable food group and encourage consumption.

Though potatoes are rich in vitamin c, potassium, dietary fiber, and some phytochemicals, unlike other vegetables they can have detrimental effects on glucose metabolism because they contain large amounts of rapidly absorbable starch. Indeed, several epidemiologic studies have linked higher potato consumption to increased concentrations of fasting plasma glucose, insulin resistance, and an increased risk of type ii diabetes mellitus.

Gestational diabetes mellitus (gdm) is a common complication of pregnancy characterized by glucose intolerance with onset or first recognition during pregnancy. Gdm is not only associated with adverse perinatal outcomes, it is also related to increased long-term cardiometabolic risk in both mothers and their offspring.

It is therefore, crucial to identify modifiable risk factors that could contribute to the prevention of GDM.

Previous studies have found that a diet with a higher glycemic index is related to higher plasma glucose and hba1c concentrations during pregnancy and could increase the risk of GDM.

It may occur occasionally without any reason and problems and also may be due to stress or anxiety so relax, if it happens often then you will need to do ultrasound test of pelvis.

It can be due to infections around uterus which are treatable next time go for ultrasound after a course of antibiotics and during midweek presence of eggs in ovaries will reassure you about getting pregnant it's good that you know about swellings around uterus indicating infections in uterus suppose that you had conceived, and infections would have growth of fetus difficult and may be still birth or miscarriage.
