Main cause of Unconsummation in females.

MD-Dermatology, MBBS
Sexologist, Pune
Main cause of Unconsummation in females.
UNCONSUMMATION DUE TO VAGINISMUS

Recurrent or persistent involuntary spasm of the musculature of the outer third of the vagina that interferes with sexual intercourse.
Vaginismus may be mild, moderate or severe. In some females, even the anticipation of vaginal insertion may result in muscle spasm and prevention of penetration. Desire, pleasure and orgasmic capacity may not be impaired. The condition may disrupt relationship. Unconsummated marriage and infertility have been found to be associated with condition. Diagnosis is made during the routine gynecological examination when the contraction of vaginal outlet is observed. Contraction of the muscles may cause pain.
In some vaginismus cases occurs during sexual activity but not during gynecological examination. This disorder found more in younger women. Vaginismus is a psychosomatic problem. Women can experience orgasm by getting effective sexual stimulation, without penetration. Husband may become ‘impotent’ being persistently unsuccessful in penetration or because of not wanting to hurt his wife. We are treating such cases at WNHO Clinic, Pune. Detail Information help line Mob. No. 9822006427.

It is called as round ligament pain. It occurs because your ligaments gets stretched by growing uterus, and with brisk movement or getting up it produces pain. If pain is severe one can take tab. Crocin or parcetamol for pain relief. In the meantime it is better to have per vaginal examination by a gynecologist to check whether you are not going in labor.

Hello, Heparin and immunoglobulin injection are fine. Since you had 2 IUDs, you have to be carefully monitored and looked after in this pregnancy. For now, take the treatment as advised and the injection might be reduced in future if everything goes well.

Can a Christian women ,after 7 months of delivery through c- section do fast in her lent days.
Hi Padhu, if you are breastfeeding your baby do not fast and take good balanced diet. After cesarean section you will be deprived of iron and calcium in your body. So take good amount of food which is rich in iron and calcium.

Hello lybrate-user, it is very disappointing to know your problem. After operation of ectopic pregnancy, there is chance of fertility problem as well high chances of repeat ectopic. You have to go for proper evaluation of ovarian reserve and chlymadia infection. If her cycle is regular, she may get pregnant. I need some of details of last ectopic pregnancy surgery then only I will help you more. There are lot of factors which effect fertility starting from age to surgery. So I need details of your past history. Further I suggest that no need to worry much as she is fertile. There might have some problems which hindering fertility, need to solve. All the best.

Hello, It may happen sometimes that you may get early menses and if this has been a first episode then likely to be stressed induced na hence watch for next 3 cycles to understand the pattern of bleeding hence. If it repeats then you need a gynaecologist evaluation.

While we start tab. Siphene, we follow our patients with USG (follicular study), to check its effect on ovulation, whether the dose is sufficient or not. We give it max for 6-9 cycles. If not getting results in 6 cycles, other investigations & treatment are required. Intercourse should be planned between 12- 16 th day of cycle.

Hello, try to have intercourse between 10 th to 18 th day of your menstrual cycle , this is a maximum fertile period for a woman when ovum releases from the ovary. Most women ovulate anywhere between Day 11 – Day 21 of their cycle, counting from the first day of the LMP.

Obesity reduces life expectancy

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Obesity reduces life expectancy
Obesity in adulthood is associated with a striking reduction in life expectancy for both men and women. Among 3457 subjects in the Framingham Study, done in the United States, those who were obese (Body Mass Index or BMI ≥30 kg/m2 at age 40 years lived 6 to 7 years less than those who were not (BMI ≤24.9 kg/m2). Those who were overweight (BMI 25 to 29.9 km/m2) at age 40 years lived about 3 years less, and those who were both obese and smoked lived 13 to 14 years less than normal–weight nonsmokers. The steady rise in life expectancy during the past two centuries may come to an end because of the increasing prevalence of obesity. Being overweight during adolescence also increase the risk of premature death as an adult. The analysis of Nurses’ Health Study has shown the risk of premature death increases with higher BMIs at age 18 years. For a BMI at age 18 of 18.5 to 21.9, 22 to 24.9, 25 to 29.9, and ≥30 kg/m2, the hazard ratio for premature death were 0.98, 1.18, 1.66, and 2.79, respectively.

A prospective study from the United States, at National Cancer Institute, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, valuated the relationship between BMI and risk of death over a maximum follow–up period of 10 years among over 500,000 men and women aged 50 to 71 years. Among the subset of individuals 50 years of age (when prevalence of chronic disease is low) who had never smoked, an increased risk of death was associated with being either overweight (20 to 50 percent increase in those between 26.5 to 29.9 kg/m2) or obese (two– to over threefold increase in those ≥30 kg/m2).

Overweight and obesity, when analyzed together, is associated with increased mortality from diabetes and kidney disease. Obesity, when analyzed alone, is associated with increased cardiac mortality and cancers considered to be obesity–related (colon, breast, esophageal, uterine, ovarian, kidney, and pancreatic cancer), but not with mortality from other cancers or non–cardiac mortality.

There are some recent studies which showed that obese people live longer. Overweight was shown to be associated with reduced mortality from non cancer, non–cardiovascular causes, but not with cancer or cardiovascular mortality. In them being underweight was associated with increased mortality from non cancer and non–cardiac causes, but not cancer and cardiac CVD causes. Obesity and increased central fat are associated with increased morbidity in addition to mortality. Overweight and obese individuals have a higher relative risk of hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, and diabetes mellitus compared with normal weight individuals. The risk of hypertension and diabetes increases with increasing BMI.

In the Nurses’ Health and the Health Professionals studies, the risk of developing a chronic disease (gallstones, hypertension, heart disease, colon cancer and stroke (in men only)) increased with increasing BMI, even in those in the upper half of the healthy weight range (BMI 22.0 to 24.9 kg/m2). Obesity is measured by using a measurement called BMI, which is calculated by dividing a person’s weight in kilograms by the square of their height in meters.

A BMI of 18.5 to 23 is considered normal (Asians). One below 18.5 is considered underweight and 25 or above is considered obese.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Air cleaners may not take care of second hand smoke:

Air purifiers DO NOT reduce the exposure to secondhand smoke. Best is not to allow smoking in your vicinity on the occasion of World No Tobacco Day.

Various devices are available for air cleaning, ranging from systems that are incorporated into the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning to simple table top devices and "smokeless ashtrays.

But cleaning air of second hand smoke poses a technical challenge because of the tobacco smoke as well as gases and particles that are included in second hand smoke.

Air cleaning devices typically include filters or electrostatic precipitators to remove particles. Some devices, also include a sorbent, such as activated charcoal, to remove gases. For second hand smoke both elements are needed.

For any air cleaning device to be effective, it must be able to clean a sufficient volume of air in relation to the total volume of the space where it is operating. Few devices are able to clean sufficient volumes of air to be effective in managing smoking indoors.

Small devices, like smokeless ashtrays and many table-top units, offer completely inadequate cleaning capacity.
