Hello doctor, I never had any heart problems in my entire life. But before some months my closet friend passed away by heart attack and he was smoker. I was very depressed because of that and few days later I was very disturbed & depressed because some personal issues and I was thinking about that friend it was like phobia I also smoked too much cigarettes on that day suddenly my heart started beating abnormally and I started feeling abnormal. Doctors scanned my heart and they found WPW syndrome so some doctors advised me to operate and some suggested to avoid surgery because it was symptomatic. What is your opinion. Thanking you.

No 1 you are having panic phobia. 2. Stop smoking immediately. Otherwise you will have same fate. As you know smoikg is a killing factor for not only heart but also bronchitis asthma & important is cancer. Wpw syndrome may be relieved after stopping of smoking. You need not undergo surgery now. First stop smoking & then after 3 months you go for heart check up.

Masturbation is not really bad; it is the addiction to it that is bad. Not even the number of years is a problem but the frequency and compulsiveness to do it is to be considered for its ill-effects. At your age you may feel it difficult and it can become addictive if you have alone time, if you obsess about it, and if you are not into relationships. The problem with addiction to this is that you may go on to prefer masturbation to heterosexual contact, even when you are married. That obviously would be an insult to your wife and will lead to a lot of conflict. Heterosexual contact is very wholesome and the physiology is made exactly for penile and vaginal contact. You will instead enjoy a poor replica of this and not know or care for the difference. The second thing that can happen with addiction is that it will become compulsive and will have no boundaries or limits, since it can be done all by yourself, whenever, wherever, and however too. The big problem a lot of children get into is the guilt around this. A useful way to discharge the energy is to get into contact games, or exercises, or even hobbies to channelize it. Also you should not spend too much time alone, and you need to keep your mind occupied with other interesting things and a lot of socializing. Even if you are not interested in marriage, for whatever reasons, it will help you to get into a friendship with a girl and enjoy the relationship where there will be a lot of excitement when you fall in love. Right now your hormones may be very active and your physiological apparatus is primed and ready for sexual stimulation. But because of your age and even otherwise it is important to develop good control and not feed into your impulses. Keeping yourself occupied and living a healthy social life are the keys to manage your sexual drives. With regard to smoking here are some guidelines: You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting a reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged on. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check-up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact, these conditions can exist all through the day, unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heartbeat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact, it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chew gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. At least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. You could also join twitter2quit program and enjoy its success to give up smoking.

Sperm will leaked out in 4 to 6 penetration. What is the problem. How to overcome my sex problem.

Sperm will leaked out in 4 to 6 penetration. What is the problem. How to overcome my sex problem.
Hello- Try ayurveda. Herbs focus on calming the sensory nerves in the brain and helping the body replenish essential neurotransmitters that are critical for restoring weak ejaculation valve nerves. Active and energetic nerve brings much better control over ejaculation and male can prevent the discharge of semen during sex. Medicines also strengthen weak genital tissue and repairs damaged ones by increasing its blood supply to make the male genital region stronger and active.

I got a couple of stitches on my chin about 10 days ago and was scheduled to get it removed/cut after a week. However, after a week, I realized that it has not dried up yet and decided to let it stay for a couple of more days. Today is the 10th day and it has already dried up. Will it be a painful procedure to get it removed tomorrow (11th day)?

Hello dear lybrate-user, hi Welcome to Lybrate.com I have evaluated your query thoroughly.* The stitch removal at 11 th day, is not a painful procedure ; just there is sensation of something stretching only not more than that. Hope this will help you for sure. Wishing you fine health ahead. Regards dear take care.

And what are the consequences of masturbation?
Try to divert your mind and indulge it in productive and creative way. Gate interests in sports or swimming which will have more physical activity, try to be occupied. Stop watching porn or any sex related things. Eat healthy food, sleep on time. Weakness after masturbation is due to loss of energy while masturbating. It's all about will, if you wish to control you can.

I would like to know about medicine which can improve male sex hormone. please help me.
Dear lybrate user. I can understand. The normal range of testosterone levels in healthy adult males is between 280 to 1,100 nanograms per deciliter (ng/dL), I can suggest some methods to improve your testosterone level and your sexual desire.. Lose Weight. High-Intensity Exercise like Peak Fitness (Especially Combined with Intermittent Fasting) Consume Plenty of Zinc. Strength Training. Optimize Your Vitamin D Levels. Reduce Stress. Limit or Eliminate Sugar from Your Diet. Eat Healthy Fats. Flax seeds increase testosterone in a man's body. They also contain essential fatty acids that are necessary for maintaining libido. Flax seeds help in the proper release of all sex hormones, facilitating sexual desire. Taking one tablespoon of flax seed every day will ensure your sexual health. Take care.

पोर्न फ़िल्में या तस्वीरें देखने से शादीशुदा जीवन पर भी बुरा असर पड़ने की आशंका बढ़ी है.सेक्स एक ऐसा रहस्य है, जिसे लेकर किशोरों में उत्सुकता रहती है. आजकल सोशल मीडिया और वेबसाइट के जरिए इस तक पहुंच आसान हो गई है. लेकिन खतरे की बात यह है कि ज्यादातर उत्सुकता पोर्नोग्राफी के जरिए ही दूर की जा रही है.अगर एक शादीशुदा युवक तीन से सात घंटे रोजाना पोर्न देखे तो शुरुआत में जोड़ा एक-दूसरे के करीब रहेगा लेकिन समय के साथ वह पत्नी से दूर अकेले पोर्न देखने में समय बिताने लगेगा

BDS
Dentist, Jammu
I am 25 years old men. I have bleeding problem in my gum and teeth. What should I do?
Go for scaling and polishing of your teeth, should be done once in 6 months. Many things cause gum bleeding but the most common is gum inflammation which will improve after this for further advise consult a dentist nearby maintain oral hygiene, brush twice for 3 minutes each change your brush every 3 months use dental floss to clean interdental areas. Thanks.
