No creams or medicines for vaginal tightening. Try kegels exercise for 3 months. If you still feel loose, then surgical vaginal tightening can be done.

How to Cope Up With Infertility?

DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology), MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Internship, MBBS
IVF Specialist, Delhi
The inability to conceive is a painful process among married couples and to deal with the problem is indeed a serious matter. According to reports, one in seven couple in India has fertility problems and sometimes the causes remain unknown. It is said around 10 percent of world’s population is struggling with some form of infertility. The number of people suffering from infertility is growing in India with each passing day, as per latest reports.
Infertility is defined when a couple is unable to conceive after six months to one year of trying despite having unprotected sexual intercourse frequently. There are various factors that contribute infertility. The latest research states, of every 100 couples reporting to fertility clinics, 40% are cases of male infertility, 50% are of women, and the remaining 10% of both partners being infertile. According to doctors, stress and infertility are co-related terms. Here are some of the points that will give you an idea how to find out the problems related with infertility.
Stress
Many couples become stressful after diagnosed with infertility. Women are more stressed than men. women of 32, working with an MNC, had experienced miscarriage due to stress. She could not get pregnant even after going through IVF treatment. Couples who are trying to get pregnant have additional stress.

Sleep disorder
Several studies indicate people who work in night shifts are affected more with infertility as compared to men working in day shifts. Their biological clock is poorly disturbed. These people usually sleep during the day. They damage their health further with smoking, caffeine and other drinks which they take during working hours in order to keep themselves awake. Stress at work, sitting for long hours, also contribute reduction in low sperm count.
Factors contributing to stress which causes infertility may also include marital disturbance, job or business stress, financial losses, personal injury or illness, death of a close family member and late marriage.

Your age is 22, on the lower rungs of reproductive period. Every pregnancy is precious and in women with higher age near 30 plus it becomes more precious in primae gravida or other with bad obstetrical history. Any viral infection during pregnancy, especially measles and german measles carry high possibility of foetal anomalies hence abortion is considered as an option after doing anomaly scans at suitable ante natal time. In case you don't wish to keep the uncertainty of abnormal outcome, you may discuss it with spouse and take an informed decision.

Hi. Thanks for the query. You cannot rely on the fact that you may have not ejaculated inside her, because there is a chance that the preejaculate could have some sperms. If you are so sure of not wanting to get pregnant please use some form of contraception like a condom. Till then hope that your girlfriend is not pregnant which you can only find out after about 14 to 21 days from her last period.

Know More About Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS)!

Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS), also known as digital eyestrain, is a group of vision-related problems arising due to prolonged use of computer, smartphones and tablets. Many people experience visual discomfort while viewing digital screens for a long period.

Computer vision syndrome (CVS)
Symptoms Causes Treatments
  • Uncorrected spectacle power
  • Decreased blink rate
  • Inappropriate glasses for computers
  • Improper Lighting
  • Stress on eye muscles due to style of work
  • Proper eye care
  • Proper positioning of body for using computers and digital devices
  • Regular blinking
  • Rest breaks
  • Proper lighting


A good rule to follow is often called the 20-20-20 rule. When working at a
computer: every 20 minutes, look away from your computer screen and
find an object that’s at least 20 feet away to look at for 20 seconds. This
relaxes eye alignment and focusing muscles that are used for close up
work, reducing your risk of eyestrain and eye fatigue. If you still have
problems please see your eye specialist, who will be able to advise further
and also check your eyes in detail for any problems.

How ginger is useful ?

How ginger is useful ?
Ginger

Ginger has been used for medicinal effects since ancient times. Sipping on ginger tea can save you from several uncomfortable conditions. It contains high levels of vitamin c, magnesium and other minerals which are extremely beneficial for a healthy lifestyle. Here is why you should prefer ginger tea over regular one.

Fights respiratory problems:

Ginger tea can also be used to get relief from congestion associated with common cold. Drink a cup of ginger tea regularly to combat the respiratory symptoms associated with environmental allergies

Relieves nausea:

One of the most important benefits of ginger tea is to fight against the nausea. Sipping on ginger tea before travelling can help you avoid the nausea and vomiting associated with motion sickness. Drink a cup of ginger tea when you notice the first sign of nausea to relieve the symptom.

Relieves stress:

Ginger tea is known to have calming properties that can help in lowering the levels of stress and tension. The reason behind is considered to be the combination of the strong aroma and healing properties of ginger.

Relieves menstrual discomfort:

Another benefit of drinking ginger tea is for all the women suffering from menstrual cramps. Get a towel and soak it in warm ginger tea and then apply it to your lower abdomen to relieve the pain and relax the muscles. You can also drink ginger tea with honey at the same time for better results.

Balances glucose levels:

A recent study conducted in australia suggests that ginger tea can also help control the blood glucose levels. Glucose levels have a direct impact on your weight as well as your daily energy and performance. Ginger tea can help you feel relaxed and allow you to avoid problems caused by varying blood sugar levels.

Helps weight loss:

Ginger tea can play an integral role in your weight loss program. It acts as a safe fat burner as it helps you lose weight only from fat, and not the general weight. It also helps you feel full, so that you eat less thereby reducing your overall caloric intake.

Reduces inflammation:

Ginger has amazing anti-inflammatory properties that make it an ideal home remedy for muscle and joint problems. Ginger tea is not only good for drinking but it can also be used to soak inflamed joints.

Improves blood circulation:

Ginger tea contains vitamins, minerals and amino acids that can help restore and improve blood circulation thereby reducing the risk of developing the cardiovascular problems. Consumption of ginger is good for heart as it helps in preventing the heart attacks and stroke.

Sore muscle relief:

Ginger teas also offer effective anti inflammatory properties that can be very helpful in relieving the muscle soreness after exercise. Therefore, it is best to sip on ginger tea after tough workouts to help cope with exercise related muscle soreness.

Reduces inflammation:

Ginger has amazing anti-inflammatory properties that make it an ideal home remedy for muscle and joint problems. Ginger tea is not only good for drinking but it can also be used to soak inflamed joints.

Irregular cycles or excessive flow during cycles is a common problem seen in a large number of females. Hormonal abnormalities are the most common cause of irregular and heavy menstrual flow. Thus, you need to consult your primary healthcare provider for clinical assessment and endometrial biopsy/ curretings for diagnosis of the condition and thus treatment.
