Your wife needs examination. Or she may be holding her thigh muscles tight during penetration. Use your hands and see if you can enter her vagina.

Yes you can have sex even during menstruation, it will be little messy but it can be managed easily. No need to take ipill or any form of contraception if you have sex during menses as you can not get pregnant, during that time.

You did not say your age. Do USG first and reveal your exact cause. If no abnormalities, then take hamamalisQ and Trillum pendullumQ both 15+15=30 drops in a half cup of water thrice daily and Syphilinum200 one dose stat. Dont worry. Otherwise meet me.

Since you have longer cycles you will be most fertile about two weeks before your next period starts that is day 21. So sex 7 days before till three days thereafter has the maximum chance of getting you pregnant. Safe period will be about five days before and leading to and during periods.

I have done Beta hcg test which is negative for pregnancy, she normally hasirregularperiods. What could be the reason.

The delay periods is quite common once you have consumed the ecp (emergency contraception). So wait for her periods. If she does not get periods in next 7 days, then repeat the pregnancy test.

You can have ovulation study by ultrasonography. Usually ultrasonography for ovulation study should be started on 10th day of period but as your cycle is prolonged, you can start serial ultrasonography for ovulation study from around 14th day or so. Ultrasonography will tell you exactly the time of ovulation and so for intercourse accordingly.

Vitamin B - Why Is It Important?

Vitamin B is not one vitamin, but is a complex of 8 vitamins, which not only essential for a good health, but also enables smooth functioning of various functions of the body. Further, each of the vitamin B complexes has specific body functions ranging from iron metabolism to hair health to preventing migraineOur body requires vitamin substances, as stated by their names.

  • Vitamin B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B5 (pantothenic acid), B6, B7 (biotin), B9 (folate), B12.

  • Vitamin B complex is widely present in food sources, and in someone who eats a well-balanced diet would be getting the required amounts of vitamin B complex.

  • Vitamin B1, also known as thiamine, is required for the body to make new cells and so has a significant role in the immune system. It ias also known as the anti-stress vitamin as it helps in improving immunity. It also is required for breakdown of carbohydrates.

  • Vitamin B2, chemically known as riboflavin, is essential for red blood cell production and transporting oxygen throughout the body. It also has antioxidant properties by reducing free radicals. This also has antiaging properties and reduces the onset of heart disease.

  • Vitamin B3, also known as niacin, is essential for cholesterol regulation. It promotes the formation of good cholesterol and so essential for preventing the onset of heart disease. It also is shown to have anti-acne effects.

  • Vitamin B5, pantothenic acid, is essential for fat and carbohydration metabolism. It also is required for the production of hormones including testosterone and cortisol (stress hormones). It is also beneficial to the skin by reducing antiaging effects including reducing brown spots.

  • Vitamin B6 or pyridoxine, has a major role to play in sleep and mood regulation. It produces various neurotransmitters like serotonin, melatonin, and norepinephrine which are essential for emotional well-being. It also has anti-inflammatory properties and is useful in conditions like rheumatoid arthritis.

  • Vitamin B7 or Biotin is known as the beauty vitamin, as it has major hair, skin, and nail benefits. It is also essential for glucose level maintenance. It assumes great importance in pregnancy as it is important for normal growth of the baby.

  • Vitamin B9 or folate or folic acid is again very essential in pregnancy as deficiency can lead to neurological defects in the developing baby. It also plays a major role in carrying oxygen to the cells through the RBCs.

  • Vitamin B12 or cobalamin is essential to ensure the other vitamins are functioning properly. B12 deficiency leads to anaemia, as it enables the red blood cells to carry oxygen throughout the body. It is mostly present in non-vegetarian foods and supplements are commonly given in anaemic people.

5 Warning Signs of Violence in a Relationship

5 Warning Signs of Violence in a Relationship

Relationships are either delicate or strong, depending upon the bonding you share with your partner. The bonding depends on various factors. Some of the most essential ones being emotional attachment, friendliness, sense of ease, mental compatibility and a feeling of sustained emotional support from the relationship. This is applicable to all relationships; be it a relationship with your spouse, a parental relation with your children, a relationship with your friends, relatives, etc.

However, it is a common factor that every relationship requires a definite level of friendship, understanding and trust to sustain. However, sometimes you may find eventual signs of distance or detachment, which could be signals of potential violence in the relationship.

  1. Sense of complete possession: This is a vital factor that intricately works behind initiating violence in relationships. Possessiveness is a form of extreme emotional condition. A sense of possessiveness lies in every relation. However, over possessiveness leads you to restrict your loved one to share his love with anyone else. It can even be severe when you may even dislike your loved one talking to anyone else. Therefore, it may lead to eventual abuse or violence in the relationship.
  2. Distrust: Trust and belief are essential elements in any relation. If you tend to lose trust on someone, you can hardly be normal in the relationship. Disbelief results in doubt and continued doubt and resistance lead you to react violently. If you constantly disbelief a person, you are ought to react out of your general personality sometime.
  3. Abuse: Use of abusive language may be a strong indication of emerging distance in a relation. A person indulges in using abusive language out of anger and frustration, both of which could be major signals of potential violence in the near future. Both abusive language and physical violence are considered as forms of violence. Therefore, initial signs of abuses should be considered immediately.
  4. Dominance: In every relationship where two persons are involved, you will usually find any one of them to be dominant. However, that is acceptable until the dominance is within a certain limit. However, if it crosses the limits of patience and acceptability, it may sometimes result in violence.
  5. Short temper Attitude: If any one of the involved persons in the relationship is short tempered, it will definitely be a lead reason of miscommunication or insufficient communication. Short tempered individuals are mostly characterised with low patience. If you do not have patience, you can never offer understanding. And above that, short-tempered attitude can be an additional disadvantage. These types of individuals fail to control their anxiety and can often be violent in relationships. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.

What are the precautions for a pregnant lady having diabetes.?

CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
What are the precautions for a pregnant lady having diabetes.?
Please let me know if the person is already a diabetic and then has become pregnant or during the course of pregnancy she has developed it. Whatever may be the situation, it is important to maintain blood glucose level between 90 - 120 mg / 100ml at any time. So patient has to be on insulin injection. Strict sugar control is a must to avoid all the complications of diabetes in pregnancy. Proper diet and to meet increased needs of the mother and baby plus correct dose of insulin are the major things to be concentrated.

I have unprotected sex with my gf and I used ipill at that time. Now I was in great fear of it. It already completed 3 days after using ipill but it did not bleed till now. Her actual date is on 19th. Can you please help me.

She won't start bleeding after taking the pill. As her date is on 19th, you have to wait till 19th for her to start bleeding. The possibility of pregnancy in the current scenario is very unlikely. So don't worry. If she doesn't bleed by 25th, further testing is advised.

How soon you get period after section.i am breastfeeding my baby?
There is no set pattern. After normal delivery or after c section some patient have periods and in some periods are delayed usually after breast feeding periods can be delayed which is known as lactational amenorrhea. In my opinion it is better to have to take contraception.

Dear user. The decision is purely yours. You can take the decision according to your values and you will be able to convince your partner that he must respect your values too. Don't indulge in sexual relationship if you don't want to do it. Value your self respect. Take care.

Are her cycles regular or not? when she is planning to concieve she should not eat papaya and pineapple. You should have intercourse between 10 to 20 th day of cycle on alternate days. If she is not able to concieve for 6 mths. Both of you should meet a gynaecologist.

Health alert
If you have friends, parents, children overweight and brands such reads as follows:
This is not dirty, or developed for lack of hygiene! in this brand is known as acanthosis-nigricans.
You can go on the neck, face, forehead, armpits, between the legs and other body parts. It is a mark on the skin that signals high insulin levels in the body.
It tends to be confused with a smudge of dirt or grime but this actually indicates that the body is resisting the insulin produced by the body.
As a result, the pancreas produces more insulin and eventually you could get to develop diabetes (type 2).

May disappear with simple lifestyle changes of life and a moderate weight reduction (in many cases).
If you know someone, adults and children that present this, do not waste any more time inbox us, remember that a detection in time can prevent diabetes.
