It is important that you protect yourself from various types of diseases and infections as much as possible. Female condoms are used to have protected intercourse so as to avoid contact with ejaculatory fluids. These condoms help a person to steer clear of blood, semen and vaginal fluids as well. Female condoms fall under the category of barrier contraceptives. They are considered to be less effective in comparison to male condoms, but are nonetheless good for preventing any kind of infection. Ensuring fine health through safe sex is your due responsibility. Hence, a little knowledge about these contraceptives is helpful if you wish to shun chances of unwanted pregnancy or Sexually Transmitted Diseases.
What is it like?
A female condom looks like an ill fitting hollow cylinder. It is a thin sheath with a closed end, that goes inside the vagina and an open end that remains outside the vagina covering other external, genital parts. The covered end has to be inserted into the vagina or into the anus. It is a misconception, that female condoms can only be used by females. It is predominantly used by females, but can also be used by any receptive partner during sexual intercourse. The ends have circular rings to keep the condom in place.
What are they made of?
Femidoms are usually made up of polyurethane. This material is expensive, making the product costly. The need for a cost effective product was immediately felt to encourage the use of condoms among females. Thus, the next generation of female condoms were made with synthetic Nitrile. Nitrile proved to be a competent substitute as it did away with the annoying noises polyurethane made during sex. It also reduced condom pricing considerably. Researchers have also come up with natural latex female condoms that retain the feel of a male condom.
Benefits of using a female condom
It is a great barrier in thwarting the flow of semen into the womb. Thus, they reduce the risk of accidental pregnancy. It also protects you against sexually transmitted infections like gonorrhoea, Syphilis, and HIV. Sex partners should be careful to refrain from any sexual contact before the insertion of a female condom. Only after the condom has been placed properly, the penis should enter the vagina or the anus. Femidoms are available in varied sizes, but the average sized condom fits most females. Large sized condoms can be used by new mothers. It is advised to buy condoms that bear the CE mark on them. The CE mark represents European Safety Standards and thus, leaves you least vulnerable to accidents or diseases.

Constipation is when a person has difficulty passing stool or has very dry stool. With processed and refined food habits on the rise, constipation is also becoming a rampant problem. The food passes through the large intestine, where a large part of the water is reabsorbed and stool is formed. This is expelled from the body, and if there is constipation, this passage of stool can be difficult, painful, and may be accompanied by bleeding too.
Constipation is common in children as well as among the elderly. Children eat a lot more junk compared to adults. As age progresses, elders begin losing teeth and they chew less which leads to indigestion and thereby constipation. Treating constipation should be a conscious effort as it does not have a single remedy. A combination of dietary changes including all aspects like fiber, water, caffeine etc. can help in treating constipation effectively.
- As the first thing in the morning, drinking a glass of lukewarm water is good. Add some baking soda to this, if you are feeling bloated, it aids in cleansing the bowels.
- Ginger tea is another great remedy to induce bowel movements in the morning.
- A glass of warm milk with a little honey or sugar is a good remedy for constipation.
- Warm water or milk with Isabgol husk at bedtime helps bowel movements in the morning.
- Applying a few drops of lukewarm castor oil over the navel when going to sleep can help in easy passage of stools in the morning.
- Guava, pears, oranges, grapes, papaya, apples, and other fruits add roughage to the diet and help in easy passage of stools.
- Soak some raisins in hot water, cool it, crush and strain them. This is very effective for treating constipation in children.
- A glass of carrot juice or papaya juice is very useful in treating constipation.
- Drink about 8 to 10 glasses of water to avoid constipation. The artificial juices and canned drinks do not count in this, as they only make it worse.
- High-fat, processed foods, alcohol, and caffeine are major causes of constipation. So one should avoid them to a large extent.
- Including small amounts of olive oil, castor oil, and ghee help in lubrication and easy passage of the stools.
- Triphala, which is a popular Ayurvedic preparation, can be mixed with warm water and consumed to prevent constipation. Given its bitter taste, you can add a small amount of honey to it. It has antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-parasitic properties. This helps in overall cleansing of the colon and is not just a short-term remedy.
- Yogasanas like pavana muktasana, yoga mudra, dhanur asana, and vajrasana have major benefits on the digestive system, including releasing accumulated gas and passage of stools.
Following these tips and maintaining dietary and lifestyle discipline is very effective in providing long term remedy from constipation. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ayurveda.

राई का वैज्ञानिक नाम से सेकेल सेरियल है. यह एक घास जैसा लगने वाला पौधा है. हलांकि इसके बीज देखने में जौ या गेहूं जैसा ही होता है. इसके उत्पादन की शुरुवात तुर्की से हुई थी लेकिन आज इसका उत्पादन संपूर्ण विश्व में किया जाता है. राई की खेती करने में सबसे बड़ी समस्या ये है कि इसकी जड़ों में फंगस लग जाता है. जिससे इसके फसल के जल्दी ही सड़ जाने का डर रहता है. राई में कई तरह के पोषक तत्वों और खनिज पदार्थों की प्रचुरता होती है. जैसे इसमें मैग्नीशियम, फाइबर, मैगनीज, फास्फोरस, तांबा, विटामिन बी, फिनॉलिक एंटीऑक्सीडेंट्स, आदि प्रमुख रूप से पाए जाते हैं. राई के फायदे और नुकसान पर एक नजर डालते हैं.
1. पाचन तंत्र को मजबूत बनाने में
कई शोधों से यह पता चलता है कि राई, एक महत्वपूर्ण पाचन में मदद करने वाला एक महत्वपूर्ण खाद्य पदार्थ है. राई हमारी कोशिकाओं की उपापचय की क्षमता को भी अनुकूलित करने के साथ-साथ हानिकारक जीन के उत्पादन को भी कम करती है.
2. कैंसर के उपचार में
राई का उपयोग कैंसर के उपचार में भी किया जाता है. क्योंकि इसमें मौजूद फेनोलिक्स नाम का एंटीऑक्सीडेंट कई तरह के कैंसर जैसे की ब्रेस्ट कैंसर, पेट के कैंसर और प्रोस्टेट कैंसर को रोकने में महत्वपूर्ण भूमिका निभाता है.
3. कब्ज दूर करने में
राई फाइबर समृद्ध खाद्य पदार्थ होने के कारण हमारे शरीर में कब्ज जैसी समस्याओं के निदान में उपयोगी है. इसके अलावा राई में पाया जाने वाला पोषक तत्व पेट की अन्य समस्याएं जैसे कि पेट में गैस, पेट दर्द, ऐंठन, अल्सर, पित्त पथरी आदि को भी कम करने का काम करते हैं.
4. वजन घटाने में
विशेषज्ञों के अनुसार फाइबर युक्त खाद्य पदार्थ वजन को घटाने में महत्वपूर्ण भूमिका निभाते हैं. इसके अलावा वजन को नियंत्रित करने के लिए खाद्य पदार्थों कैलोरी की भी काफी कम होनी चाहिए. ये दोनों गुण एक साथ आपको राई में मिल जाता है. फाइबर आपको भूख नहीं लगने देता और कैलोरी की कम मात्रा दोनों मिलकर आपका वजन काफी हद तक कम कर सकते हैं.
5. शुगर के उपचार में
शुगर में हमारे शरीर में इंसुलिन के स्तर में काफी बढ़ोतरी हो जाती है. इसलिए भोजन के समय यह ध्यान रखना होता है कि उस खाद्य पदार्थ से हमारे शरीर में इंसुलिन का स्तर न बिगड़े. इसलिए आपको चाहिए ऐसा खाद्य पदार्थ जिसमें ये गुण पहले से ही मौजूद हो. राइ एक ऐसा ही खाद्य पदार्थ है जिससे कि इन्सुलिन का स्तर प्रभावित नहीं होता है. इसका कारण ये है कि राई बड़े अणुओं से बना होता है इसलिए ये आसानी से सरल चीनी में नहीं टूटता है.
6. अस्थमा के उपचार में
राई के नियमित सेवन बच्चों में अस्थमा की संभावना को कम कर सकता है. कई शोधों में ऐसा पाया गया है कि राई का सेवन करने वाले बच्चों की तुलना में जिन बच्चों ने राई का सेवन नहीं किया था उनमें अस्थमा होने की संभावना 60% तक ज्यादा पाई गई.
7. रक्तचाप में
यदि आप एथिरोस्केलेरोसिस जिसमें धमनियां ब्लॉक हो जाती हैं, या उच्च रक्तचाप से पीड़ित हैं तो आपके लिए राई का सेवन काफी फायदेमंद साबित हो सकता है. क्योंकि राई में विटामिन खनिज और फाइबर प्रचुर मात्रा में पाए जाते हैं. जो कि आपकी धमनियों के ब्लॉकेज को खत्म कर सकते हैं.
8. पित्ताशय की पथरी में
फाइबर से समृद्ध खाद्य पदार्थ होने के कारण राई हमारी पाचन क्रिया को दुरुस्त करके इसमें होने वाली पथरी के विकास को रोकने में महत्वपूर्ण भूमिका निभाता है. इसके अलावा यह अन्य समस्याओं को भी खत्म करता है.
राई के नुकसान
- राई कई लोगों के लिए परेशानी का कारण बन सकता है.
- ऐसे लोगों को चिकित्सकीय परामर्श लेने की आवश्यकता होती है.
