Hi lybrate-user. You should immediately get your blood pressure assessed. Redness of the eye is one of the most prevalent problems observed. Redness of the eyes has multiple causes associated with it. To enumerate a few common causes: (1) allergy of the eye. It is usually caused by improper eye hygiene. It occurs with symptoms of pricking, itching, irritation, watering, foreign body sensation and discomfort. There is a tendency to rub the eyes with fingers, handkerchief, cloth, etc. This is not a good habit because it tends to transmit lots of virus, bacteria and dust into the eye. Allergy usually presents with symptoms of watering (clear water), redness and itching of the eye. Thus, eye hygiene remains the principal modality of treatment along with eye drops as a supplement. (2) infectious conjunctivitis: this is usually associated with white-yellowish discharge. There may occur associated pain and sensation of itching, pricking, watering and discomfort. If so, it would be a good idea to go and show to an eye specialist in person. (3) foreign body lodged in the eye. This is more commonly associated with people who drive 2 wheeler vehicles without protection. It occurs more commonly in one eye. Foreign bodies that commonly get lodged are eyelashes, insect wings, small insects, dust particles, iron particles (more common with people working in the iron industry) the solution for a foreign body lodged in the eye would be better provided by an eye specialist at the clinic because it would require immediate removal from the eye and appropriate therapy. (4) raised eye pressure: this is a condition known as glaucoma. It is not so common as the previous mentioned conditions. There is usually associated pain in the eyes. It is commonly bilateral (occurs in both eyes). There is usually a positive family history of glaucoma associated in a majority of the cases. (5) inflammation of the covering layers of the eyeball. This is known as" uveitis" it is also a relatively less common condition. There is associated pain. It would require a thorough eye checkup including the retina-thus a good idea would be to visit the eye specialist in person. (6) increased blood pressure. This has known to cause redness which is also known as sub-conjunctival hemorrhage. The redness in this case tends to be deep dark and usually occurs only in one portion of the eye. In this regard, a complete ophthalmic evaluation and a systemic evaluation is warranted. (7) injury/ trauma to the eye in any form may cause redness of the eyes. This should be taken seriously and assessed in detail by an eye specialist in person. From the symptoms described by you, it seems more likely to be a fluctuation of blood pressure. Get it assessed along with your blood sugar levels and then we can follow up from there. Also, you might require a complete eye evaluation in order to rule out other causes. This would be possible only by examining your eyes in person. Hope my suggestions helped you. Take care.

I go bathroom 4 5 times in night. My sugar label is 69. Feeling heavy head. Sleepy , Weakness.Please tell.

I go bathroom 4 5 times in night. My sugar label is 69. Feeling heavy head. Sleepy , Weakness.Please tell.
Mr. Lybrate-user, if your sugar level is 69 mg/100 ml, then it is actually very low, that does not cause excess urination. But please check after food glucose level, if that is high (>200 mg/100 ml), then there is diabetes. Otherwise there may be some other reason for increased frequency of urination. Get routine urine test done for checking if there is urinary tract infection. Also get your bp checked, plus you are over weight, that also must be contributing for weakness. Please come back with all the above details, then I can be of help. Thanks for the question.

Premature Ejaculation and its treatment

Premature Ejaculation and its treatment

PME Overview

Early / Rapid (Premature) Ejaculation is not a disease The most common sexual dysfunction in men is Premature Ejaculation (PE). In fact it is more common than common cold and will not go away by itself, unless diagnosed and treated.
Premature Ejaculation happens before penetration or after penetration before partner achieves satisfaction. Men with PE have short ejaculation times from penetration to ejaculation, inability to delay ejaculation and negative personal consequences from PE.

Adequate ejaculatory control refers to a reasonable degree of voluntary control, which allows a man to continue to continue sexual performance, until he chooses to “let go” and ejaculate. Most guys are able to prolong their sexual act, on the basis of partners need for 3 to 7 minutes.

Premature ejaculators are unable to achieve this level of voluntary control and they have no choice and they ejaculate rapidly and involuntarily as soon as they reach a high state of arousal, whether they want it or not. Many men with early ejaculation attribute it to guilt about masturbation, lack sexual confidence and they tend to be anxious about their ability to perform. Each time their negative experience convinces them that they are “losers” and this increases their performance anxiety. During anxiety there is a release of adrenalin and nor adrenalin which are our body’s emergency hormones which reach penile circulation in less than a second and instantly constricts the blood vessels reversing the erectile process and they naturally lose the erection also, which can be devastating.

Lifelong PE is characterized by 'ejaculation which always or nearly always occurs prior to or within about one minute of vaginal penetration leading to frustration of the partner.



In our society, men often measure their self worth by the hardness of their erection and by their “staying power”. Men who have poor control, especially if they are unsure of themselves in other ways, may end up with a general sense of inadequacy and failure, and may develop additional sexual difficulties. Early ejaculation is not good for romantic relationships, not because women reject them on account of the PE, but because they develop self-destructive patterns of sexual avoidance and lead a bitter and frustrated life. Many women who complain bitterly about their husband’s PE are really less upset about their PE, but are more concerned by the partner’s insensitivity to their feelings. Naturally, such deep unhappiness on the part of the partner creates pressures, which only worsen the couple’s problems, and in fact they avoid having sexual activity.

The only way to diagnose is when the individual feels or the partner complains about it.

Treatment

Preventive Exercise

By modifying the stimulation in masturbatory exercises (Stop-start technique), Yoga (Vajroli & Ashwini Mudra), Unani approach (interrupting the flow of urine) a man with premature ejaculation can learn to slow his response or in severe cases surgical cutting of the nerve.

Reducing sensation

Wear a condom: sounds too simple to be true, but it works for a lot of men.

Use an analgesic cream or spray: There are two classes of these products. The first is the traditional "numbing" creams and sprays that have been on the market for some time. The upside is that you'll feel less sensation, which will delay ejaculation. The downside is your partner may suffer a loss of sensation as well and of course less sensation is not very appealing to men and women.

There is a new class of topical medications that absorb into the skin to deliver a mild anesthetic to the sensory nerves below the stratum corneum (top layer of skin) of the penis. This allows men to have ejaculatory control but with less loss of sexual sensation, and reduces the transference to their partners.

Apply strategic pressure:

Youcan delay an oncoming ejaculation by applying pressure to one of two spots.

Perineum pressure: Pressing on the perineum by yourself or your partner, a spot midway between your scrotum and your anus, will help to stop ejaculation because this spot reaches through to the prostate gland. It is the prostate that contracts and expands during orgasm and then expels the ejaculation fluid.

Testes tug: When a man nears orgasm his scrotum raises up closer to his body. You can delay ejaculation by gently pulling your testes down and away from your body.

Reduce anxiety:

For many men anxiety and pressure to perform is a major contributor to premature ejaculation. Relax and remember that your partner probably cares about more than the timing of your orgasms, and that premature ejaculation doesn't mean you can't still be good in bed

Medications

Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI), group of drugs delay ejaculation.

In very severe cases, rarely surgical option is considered, to denerve the penis of its sensations.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Testicle size, color and shape differs in every individual. If you observe your ears, eyes, hands, legs etc they will be differing in some aspect in your body. The same is applicable to your testicles too. They differ in color, size and texture. This difference will not affect your sexual performance or future reproductive ability. But you should look for abnormal swelling of testicles with or without pain, itching, burning etc. Don’t panic. Take care.

Dear Lybrate user. Anus has a very small hole. In many cases penetration may not be possible if the women / man who receives anal sex is unwilling. It could be painful. Take care.

I am a diabetic n taking medicine for this but how do I know that it is type one or type 2 diabetes. ?
Hi Mahendra, The basic difference between type 1 and type 2 diabetes is that in type 1 diabetes there is no insulin production be the beta cells of the pancreas and it is necessary to take insulin externally to utilize glucose, that is why it is also called Insulin dependent diabetes. While in type 2 diabetes there is defect in insulin functioning or/and insulin secretion, depending upon various conditions type 2 diabetes can be managed well with following proper diet, exercise and medication. Though in some cases patient with type 2 diabetes may also require insulin. Type 2 diabetes is majorly caused by poor lifestyle, excess body and is also hereditary while type 1 diabetes occur due to destruction of beta cells which is a auto immune defect. As per your description it seems that yours is type 2 diabetes.

Hi She's got much pain during sex, intercourse that's pain out of control And more thing is that she's suffering from white discharge from vagina. So can you tell me please what is the cause of these. Is it possible in sex or other things. And what is treatment of these.

Having minimal white discharge is normal during the cycle. But if it causes pain during sex, if it associated with itching and is foul smelling these are signs of infection. It's better to get tested if she is having any infection and manage accordingly.

Health Tips to Manage ULCERATIVE COLITIS

Dietitian/Nutritionist, Durgapur
Health Tips to Manage ULCERATIVE COLITIS
  1. Limiting intake of dairy products will help in managing diarrhea, abdominal pain and gas problems.
  2. Eat high fiber foods, such as fruits, vegetables whole grains. The sitoindosides in dried, unripe bananas increase mucus in the digestive tract, which provides a strong protective coating to help prevent and heal ulcers.
  3. Yogurt and buttermilk are excellent for maintaining a balance of beneficial bacteria in bowels.
  4. Maintain a healthy weight. Obesity may cause increased pressure in the abdomen which leads to acidity.
  5. Avoid eating heavy meals late at night, finish the last meal, preferably 2-3hrs before bedtime.
  6.  Avoid acidic foods and juices that make the symptoms worse like pepper, spicy foods, chocolates, and high-fat foods.
  7. Drink plenty of fluids, have at least 10 glasses of water. Avoid caffeine which stimulates the intestines and makes diarrhea worse, while carbonated drinks produce gas.
  8. Manage stress. Although stress does not cause ulcerative colitis it may aggravate symptoms and even delay healing.
  9. Get enough sleep so that the body has time to repair and regenerate damaged cells without the demands of digesting food.
  10. Avoid- cream and pastry, citrus fruits, carbonated drinks, alcohol, spicy food, strawberry, soya, tea/coffee, meat.
