Hi! he can do masturbation 2 times a week, more than this is harmful. Daily masturbation is definitely harmful for future married life. Excessive masturbation can cause problems in bearing child. It can cause erectile dysfunction, early ejaculation, sperms count and size problem of penis and body weakness and memory problem also in the long run.

Why You Should Be Stacking Up on Protein

Why You Should Be Stacking Up on Protein

Proteins are extremely important for your health. Protein is present in every cell of your body, it generally makes up your hair and nails along with keratin. Your body needs various supplements to stay healthy, such as fats and carbohydrates. These are called macronutrients (you need to consume it in huge amounts to stay hale and hearty).

Where can you find protein?

  1. It is present in milk, fish, eggs and meat.
  2. If you happen to be a vegan you can consume soy, beans, legumes and nut butter.
  3. Protein bars, Greek yogurt, cottage cheese, anchovies, peanut butter, tofu, wheat germ, quinoa and edamame also contain a high amount of protein.

Why should you consume protein?

  1. It can reduce the risk of diabetes by producing natural insulin and progesterone protein.
  2. The substance called hemoglobin carries oxygen to your blood cells. So without hemoglobin oxygen would not be supplied to your muscles.
  3. If you have a heat shock, proteins can help reduce the stress and rebuild your cells.
  4. If you have lack of protein in your diet, it will be difficult for you to move and can also result in paralysis.
  5. Since protein is present in your hair and nails, it also helps to make your skin taut and look younger since structural protein includes collagen. There are a lot of products available in the market like collagen creams; since collagen contains protein it is not possible that creams containing proteins applied on the skin can make your skin better. It is highly necessary to consume protein such that your blood flow contains proteins. This will make your skin seem youthful.
  6. After a surgery, it is important that you stack up on protein, because protein helps to close your wounds and make them heal faster.
  7. Protein shakes are also very useful when you want to attain a healthier physique after hitting the gym. During a workout, your body goes through a lot of micro-tears (wear and tear caused in your muscle due to contraction of your muscle). So taking protein shakes after a heavy workout helps your muscle tissues to be healed completely.

Ayurveda and Blood Sugar Imbalance

Ayurveda and Blood Sugar Imbalance

Ayurveda, the traditional way of healing is known to be a crucial and effectual therapy for a lot of ailments. Since the primitive ages, mankind has been approaching Ayurveda for remedial purposes and in most instances have reaped fruitful results. Ayurveda seeks to heal diseases using natural herbs that are said to resonate well with the four elemental constituents of beings, i.e air, water, earth and fire. Ayurveda uses myriad herbs and natural ingredients in a unique proportion to impart physical as well as spiritual wellness. One of the most common and yet fairly formidable disease plaguing modern lives is diabetes, induced by imbalance in the blood sugar levels in the human body. 

Ayurveda recommends the use of a few select herbs to control and alleviate the blood sugar imbalance.

  1. Gymnema Leaf: Indigenously called gurmar, Gymnema leaves regulate the insulin level in our body. It not only prevents absorption of sugar in the intestine, but also stimulates cell growth in the pancreas. As a consequence, the insulin levels in the body is maintained and the blood sugar problems get neutralized.
  2. Cinnamon: Cinnamon is replete with polyphenols that trigger off a healthy count of insulin secretion. Cinnamon has other beneficial properties as well. Whether consumed as tea or sprinkled on food as a flavor, Cinnamon can be instrumental in combatting blood sugar imbalance.
  3. Fenugreek seeds: A common find in most Indian kitchens, Fenugreek seeds are well known for their health advantages.  Its pungent sweet flavor adds to the taste of many dishes. But most importantly, fenugreek seeds extensively keep the blood sugar level in control. 
  4. Basil Leaf: Basil leaves are one of the most commonly used natural remedies for a wide range of diseases. The basil extracts are used in various food items and are extremely effective in curbing the excessive presence of blood sugar in the body. In general as well, basil leaves regulate the metabolism to a large extent.
  5. Coccinia Indica: This herb protects the vital organs from any damage caused due to diabetes. It stabilizes the breakdown of starch in the body.
  6. Azadirachta Indica: Common known as Neem, this herb is perhaps an indomitable medicine for increasing glucose tolerance. Neem is also used in allopathic medication on account of its various healing qualities.

PCOS is a condition associated with hormonal imbalances (abnormalities in the function of the HPO axis), which causes lack of control in the production of androgen (male hormone) The diagnostic criteria that confirms a woman has PCOS is if she has any two of these three conditions ? Androgen excess ? Inability to release an egg from the ovaries on a regular (monthly) basis (chronic anovulation)Ovulatory dysfunction (oligomenorrhea or oligovulation) ? Polycystic ovaries (multiple cysts on the ovary) Other symptoms include ? Hirsutism (growth of hair in areas where hair is normally minimal or absent, such as the face, chest, and breasts) ? Acne ? Obesity and metabolic syndrome ? Infertility ? Obstructive sleep apnea ? Diabetes Here are some common causative factors ? Vitamin D deficiency ? Iodine deficiency ? Hormone disrupting toxins ? Abnormal thyroid function ? Problems with intestinal bacteria ? Adrenal Stress ? High Lutenizing Hormone (LH) levels (often as an aftermath result of the pill) ? Eat a low glycemic load PCOS diet ? Foods with a low glycemic load keep blood sugar levels consistent and improves insulin sensitivity. This is basically what the drug metformin does except that we are approaching it in the natural way. Here are some benefits of a low GL PCOS diet. ? It makes weight loss easier ? Keeps blood sugar level more constant ? Helps to prevent insulin resistance ? It aids in burning calories ? It lowers the risk of heart disease.

Oral pill like novelon or femilon are the best contraceptive for newly married couple. Condoms are still the most popular form of contraception, but can easily be forgotten in the “heat” of the moment, especially in a newly married couple. It also reduces sexual pleasure. Oral pills (combined pill) when taken correctly, the pills are most effective at preventing pregnancy.

Thats ok. In a married couple one contraceptive is enough and if she has been having the oral pills and is having no problems with it. Usually the tablet is to be taken once in 24 hours. And it's intake is not related to sex! the unwanted 21 tablets are routine oc pills like mala n, mala d etc. So they have to be taken daily for the 21 days without break, and in these 21 days even if sex doesnot happen on a day or two, the pills have to be taken without a break to complete the pack. I think you are confused between unwanted 21 and unwanted 72 tablets. Unwanted 21 are regular oral contraceptive pills which are taken for 21 days, folowed by 7 day break cycle. Whereas the unwanted 72 is an emergency contraceptive pill, which is taken" after" sex. But. Unwanted 72 is meant for couples who have very infrequent sex, say once or twice a month. If a married lady, or a woman having frequent sexual activity takes unwanted 72 after or before each sex, it will unwanted 72 after each act of sex, she will create havoc for her menses. And her menses will become very irregular.

General Physician,
Secondhand exposure to smoking in the first trimester of pregnancy is hazardous to fetal health
Smoking in pregnancy is harmful to both the mother as well as her unborn child. Women who smoke or are exposed to secondhand smoke during pregnancy are at greater risk for spontaneous pregnancy losses, preterm births, preterm premature rupture of membranes, placenta previa, abruptio placentae and still births.

Most of these risks can be reduced by avoiding secondhand smoking,

The IMA campaign on Tobacco cessation will continue till 31st May, 2015 with a Tableau, which will go around Delhi/NCR to create awareness on how to quit smoking.

Quitting smoking during pregnancy has beneficial aspects but most benefits occur if one quits smoking or avoids exposure to secondhand smoke during the first three months of pregnancy.

In pregnancy, there is nothing like reducing or cutting down on smoking. It has to be a ?Zero Smoking Policy.? For women who cannot quit, drugs are not contraindicated.

About 50% of women who quit, restart within 2 months. Therefore, continuing counselling is required.

Six Common Causes for Shoulder Pain

MBBS, MS - Orthopaedics, Fellow In Joint Replacement , Fellow In Arthroscopy

Six Common Causes for Shoulder Pain

The shoulder is one of the most important joints in the body that uses a ball and socket to join the arm to the rest of the body. Any pain can make it difficult to carry out motion in a comfortable manner. The shoulder consists of the long arm bone called the humerus, the collarbone or the clavicle, as well as the shoulder blade called the scapula. A layer of cartilage provides essential padding to the bones in this area and its two main joints. There are a number of issues that can cause shoulder pain. Let us get to know the six most common ones. 

  1. Rotator Cuff Injury: This is the most common cause of shoulder pain and it occurs when the four muscles or the tendons are injured. These muscles and tendons usually control the movement of the arm. This injury can involve strains and tears which may also be caused by constant lifting of heavy objects. 
  2. Rotator Cuff Tendonitis: This condition affects the tendons and muscles that help in moving the arm freely. This usually happens due to inflammation in the tendons. It is commonly experienced by patients who are actively involved in sports and other heavy physical pursuits in their line of work. 
  3. Frozen Shoulder: This is a debilitating condition that restricts the free movement of the arm and is also known as adhesive capsulitis. When the shoulder tissues become too thick, it leads to the growth of scar tissue that hinders proper movement and causes pain. 
  4. Osteoarthritis: Osteoarthritis is a condition that comes as part of aging bones that also become hollow and brittle over the passage of time, which leads to joint and bone pains in various parts of the body. It is a degenerative disease that is caused due to prolonged wear and tear as well as other factors including family history and sports injury.
  5. Bursitis: This condition is known to affect the fluid filled sacs that lie in between the joints. These are known as bursae. When the bursae suffers from swelling, the effect usually shows up as pain in the joints. 
  6. Tendon Sheath Inflammation: The fibrous tissue that connects the bones and the muscles is called a tendon. The presence of the tendon makes it possible to pursue activities like running, jumping, lifting, gripping and more. It is protected by a sheath known as synovium, which also lubricates the same. Any injury or tear to this sheath can cause shoulder pain.

Acute and persistent pain that does not abate and gets even worse should be treated with immediate medical intervention.

Hi lybrate-user - this may be a breast lump, which in most cases may be innocuous. However on the safer side it is advisable to visit your gynaecologist for a proper assessment and evaluation. Best wishes.

Which days in a month are safe for doing sex without condoms ? Which days are risky for pregnancy ?

M.A. (Scholar), BHMS
Sexologist, Mumbai
Which days in a month are safe for doing sex without condoms ? Which days are risky for pregnancy ?
If woman's periods are very regular, she is tentatively ovulating on the fourteenth day prior to the next expected date of cycle. And 5 days before and after. Total 10 days. Are the most fertile days. Nevertheless please do not depend on these natural methods. Pills or condom or copper t (if she has delivered earlier) are better means. Consult together an expert for specific guidance.
