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.

There is nothing like'operations of testosterone due to vein dilusis' I presume you mean'varicocele' it appears to be due to stress / anxiety, so relax and do exercise. However to exclude other cause you need to do some blood tests like sugar and hormones. Stop smoking if you smoke. Check bp. If you are taking any medicine or nutritional supplement on regular basis then it may be due to side effect of that.

? Take cleaned ginger pieces and crush it to make a paste. ? Now, extract the ginger juice from this paste. ? Take 2 teaspoons of ginger paste and mix it well with 2 teaspoons of honey. ? Consume this mixture for three times a day for a month to see visible results Size of penis differs from person to person. The average length worked out in some studies show that the penis is 3.5 inches in length normally and goes to 5.1inch length when erected. The latest study in America determined that the average size of the erectile penis is 5.6inches and the circumference of the erectile penis is 4.8 inches. Whatever is the size of the penis, it must be understood that it is normal for the man most people think that the taller the man is the bigger is his penis ?this is not true. Different lengths have been found in different heights of men. The shortest penis of 2.5 inches is seen in a big built man of 5.11 inches height. On the other hand a slim person with the height of 5.6 inches has a penis of 5.5 inches. There is no relation between race and penis. The small size of the penis is only perception. Men complaining of small penis can be due to the person suffering from erectile dysfunction. A man sees his own penis to be smaller when they see from the top. This is the result of foreshadowing. Abdominal fat can also make the penis look smaller. A small size penis grows to 100% length when erected whereas a longer penis grows to 75% length in erection

If you are planning to have a baby. The fertile period of a female starts from 14th day to 20th day considering a 30 day cycle. My suggestion would be to have sex on alternate days during these days.

A-around 15% of pregnancies gets miscarried, that is nature's rule. You should avoid next pregnancy for 6 months from the last abortion. Chances of repeat abortion or pretem delivery increases if one becomes pregnant within 6 months of miscarriage. Also if abortion/ miscarriage was caused by any viral infection, then it will get cured automatically within 3 months time. Use contraception for 6 months. Best one to use are oral contraceptive pills. No special treatment or tests are needed if you had only one miscarriage or spontaneous abortion.

Dear Lybrate user. Phimosis is a congenital narrowing of the opening of the foreskin so that it cannot be retracted. Phimosis is a very common problem. In most of the cases you can clear the problem yourself. Phimosis could cause moderate to severe pain while having vaginal intercourse. Apply oil on your foreskin and on the glans. Move the foreskin forward and back slowly without hurting you much. Because the oil is lubricant, it will be easier than without oil. Do this forward and back movement 20 times several times in a day. Repeat the same every day for around one month. You will get the elasticity and you will be able to retract the foreskin completely. In case if there is no result from the above massage, you can always go for a minor surgical procedure called circumcision. Take care.

2 steps to a pain free neck

Neck and back pain is the second biggest reason to visit a doctor, yet people ignore it.

most of this can be prevented and treated, that too, non-surgically and without involving any medication or exercises at home.

Orthocure clinic at gurgaon offers specialized neck and back pain treatments which have been globally acclaimed for many years and are being offered for the first time in india.


    What causes neck pain and what are the symptoms?


weak muscles are the root cause of neck pain. When we move our neck, the large muscle group like upper back muscles shoulder muscles take most of the load leaving core neck muscles in a state of disuse. It can also come from spinal disorders involving tissues of the neck. Symptoms are: stiff neck making head turning difficult, soreness in neck or pain that radiates down into the shoulders, arms, or fingers; or radiates up into the head.

2. What are risk factors to develop neck pain?


    Past neck injury.
    Sedentary lifestyle due to a desk job or poor posture.
    Bending the neck for a long time while cooking, using phone, holding a baby, writing, reading etc.
    Cervical slipped disc or nerve compression disorders.


3. How is treatment at orthocure clinic different from others?

Orthocure offers a comprehensive neck back program with a 2 step protocol. We first reduce the pain by using the spinal decompression machine and, then, strengthen the muscles on the cervical medical exercise machine, thereby, treating the root cause of the pain.

4. What is the spinal decompression machine?

It is the first facility in gurgaon from the canadian decompression and pain centers, canada. Non-surgical spinal decompression therapy has computer controlled movements to decompress the spine in a graded manner causing a  vacuum effect that helps in reducing the compression on the nerves.

5. How is strengthening done on medical exercise machine and are there any side effects?

In india orthocure is offering first and only facility of medical exercise machine from usa. It strengthens core muscles by isolating them and restraining the other stronger group of muscles. Computerized testing is another unique feature of this treatment which shows how weak your neck/back muscles are compared to a  normal adult. Also, there are no side effects as both are non-invasive treatments with no medicines or injections. Patient is under close medical supervision throughout the treatment.

For consultation, contact orthocure clinics at:

Spo 214, 2nd floor, south point mall, golf course road, gurgaon.
