Romance or oral sex lead to arousal, seminal fluid fills the ducts bringing to outlet. Your type of person should always complete the sexual act till the orgasm and let the semen ejaculated out of the body and, definitely you will not have pain then. Regards.

A regular exercise regimen will help you lose fat throughout your body, including your breasts. Certain cardiovascular and strength-training exercises target fat in the chest and upper body. ? Focus on low-impact cardio workouts since most women who have very large breasts simply cannot do high-impact exercises like jogging or running. Do low-impact cardio exercises on equipment like a stationary bike, treadmill or elliptical trainer for 45 minutes, at least 5 days a week. ? Also, perform specific strength-training exercises to help tighten up the chest muscles and reduce breast size. Examples of these exercises include classic pushup and dumbbell bench press. Do these exercises with high repetitions between 8 to 12 reps in 2 or 3 sets, a few times a week. Note: When exercising, always wear a well-fitted sports bra to prevent sagging breasts. for treatment and creams and oils ask privately

Hello Dear,Periods occur when the egg formed during each menstrual cycle in the female body is not fertilized and hence ejected out of the reproductive system along with blood and several other tissue cells. The duration of each menstrual cycle is about 28 days Most women will experience their monthly period right from the time they are 13 to the time they are 50. For many women, their monthly period is nothing more than an annoyance; but other women may suffer some problems. Visit us at www.Malhotraayurveda.Com

Mostly after stopping tablet you can plan for pregnancy immediately. Conception will depend on ovulation, if any cyst or tubes are patent or not.

Home Remedies for Acidity by Ayurveda

If you are feeling uneasy and witness symptoms like loss of appetite, heartburn and unexpected stomach pain, chances are you have acidity. Stomach conditions wherein acid levels of the gastric juices are much more than normal is known as acidity. Acidity gives you tremendous discomfort.

You can use any of these listed Ayurvedic treatments if you suffer from acidity:

Mulethi (liquorice) and honey: You can reduce liquorice root to powder, then to half a spoon of this powder add little honey to form paste. Consume this paste twice daily after meals. Liquorice neutralizes the acids quickly to give relief.
White pumpkin juice: Take white pumpkin peel, slice it and make a pulpy juice out of it. Having half a cup, twice a day gives fast recovery from gastritis and acidity. Alternatively, you may eat sweet made of pumpkin (peetha ki methai) after meals.
Amla powder (Indian Gooseberry) and honey: Soak one teaspoonful of amla powder in half a cup of water. Add honey, stir and drink empty stomach in the morning. Repeat similarly in the evening.
Cumin seeds: You can reduce cumin seeds to a powder form, then add half a spoon of it to water; presumably, one liter. Then, boil and filter it. You will have to make sure that you drink this solution instead of normal water. Take this water based solution everyday till recovery. This is quite an effective remedy for acidity.
Buttermilk: You can take half a glass of buttermilk and add a pinch of asafoetida and turmeric to it. With it, also add a tiny amount of fenugreek. Drink it at night to get the best out of it.
Jaggery: You can try taking boiled ash gourd with jaggery. This relieves the burning sensation in the stomach to a considerable extent.

Ayurvedic treatment is a natural way of curbing health problems. Acidity that happen to people often can be effectively cured with Ayurvedic remedies mentioned above.

Dear lybrate-user, Unexplained infertility causes 30% of all cases of infertility. I would say have you checked your Vit D3 level, TSH level which should be less than 2.5.Our s prolactin should be within normal level. Take folic acid 5 mg per day. If your age is nearing 30 please take ovares SR 75 mg daily, start ecospirin 75 mg per day and have sex every second to third day. Good luck to you kiran.

Once a menstrual bleeding had finished, very few women bleed again till next menses. But in some slight bleeding may occur at ovulation time. This is perhaps what you are experiencing. But without a thorough examination, one will not be able to rule out other causes, like cervical erosion, polyp or infection or even a vaginal tear. So best to go and see a gynecologist.

I am a 21 year old female. I am almost one month pregnant and since me and my partner do not want the baby now. We went to doctor for abortion. She suggested either pills or throat cleaning process. Which method is good and safe and less pain full? I want to take the pills whether that will be good and safe or not? Please answer.

Regarding pills, it is very easy method. You have to take that abortive pills as directed and you will get periods. Then after go to a gynecologist for ultrasonography to confirm that pregnancy is terminated. But this method has certain disadvantages. Sometimes there is no effect at all. Success also depends on how many months pregnancy is of. Sometimes you get result, but abortion is not complete. Some retained products of conception remains inside which will cause bleeding and diagnosed by ultrasonography. Then ultimately, you have to undergo curetting. (it is not throat curetting.) sometimes abortion is complete but still you have bleeding continuously. So looking on disadvantages, straightway curetting is the safest and ultimate procedure.

Your BMI is 22.7 which is absolutely normal (18-25). This is the perfect age 924 years) for you to get pregnant. To get pregnant you need to have regular sex i. E. 3-4 times a week. If you want to make her pregnant fast then you can follow this calender method. If a women’s menstrual cycle varies from 26days to 31days cycle, The shortest cycle (26days) minus18days=8th day. The longest cycle (31days) minus 10days=21st day Thus, 8th to 21st day of each cycle counting from first day of menstrual period is considered as fertile period.

Super Fact of the Day: Your brain does not feel pain!

The brain is the pain center when you burn yourself or bleed, but is devoid of pain receptors itself. The brain itself cannot feel pain. Blood vessels, nerves and tissues surrounding it are receptive to pain. That is why your head hurts during a headache, but your brain cannot.

Hi lybrate-user, It’s possible to reduce the severity and intensity of hair growth using birth control pills- the most commonly prescribed medical intervention! The birth control pills help by decreasing production of androgens by ovaries. Besides this, estrogen present in the pills also helps the liver to produce more of sex hormone binding protein- these proteins bind to circulating androgens, thereby reducing their action on body. Both these actions help in reducing the growth of hair on body. I think you will likely benefit from oral contraceptive pills, but please consult a reproductive endocrinologist/ gynecologist specializing in endocrine disorders for confirming this. At the same time, please be clear that it may not be possible to get rid of all the hair permanently with medicines alone. If they are bothering you too much you may consult a cosmatologist/ dermatologist for Permanent hair removal using electrolysis or LASER treatment. In electrolysis treatment, electric current is passed into the hair follicle using a needle, which damages the root of the hair permanently. Similarly, LASER treatment uses LASER to destroy the hair follicle. Both these are effective methods to get rid of the undesired hair. However, we do not yet know if there are any long term complications or side effects of these methods and these methods are not yet approved by the US FDA. Also, you will have to continue to do what you have successfully done so far and keep your weight under control. All the best.

Hello, take hamamelis q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water every 2 hrly during the menses. And rest of days, take five phos. And alfaalfa tonic. Take them thrice daily for 20 days and revert me back. Even after these medication, if there is no relief in the sufferings, need to get an ultrasound (pelvis) done.
