Yesterday was my last day of my periods ie 12th of march. Nxt day 13th of March. I had sex with my bf and intercourse without protection. And after 12 hours of intercourse. I want to take unwanted 72 tablet. I want to know that there is any chances of pregnancy. After taking that tablet.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, FCPS, DGO, Diploma of the Faculty of Family Planning (DFFP)

As such chance by period date is extremly low and addition of tablet makes it still low practically nil. Still one must observe withdrawal bleeding 7-10 days later as tablets taken.

Around 15% of pregnancies gets miscarried, that is nature's rule. You should avoid next pregnancy for 6 months from the last abortion. Chances of repeat abortion or preterm delivery increases if one becomes pregnant within 6 months of miscarriage. Also if abortion/ miscarriage was caused by any viral infection, then it will get cured automatically within 3 months time. Use contraception for 6 months. Best one to use are oral contraceptive pills. No special treatment or tests are needed if you had only one miscarriage or spontaneous abortion.

Flatulence - It's Homeopathic Cure!

Flatulence - It's Homeopathic Cure!

Although having gas is common, it can be extremely uncomfortable and embarrassing at times. Gas is eliminated either by burping (belching) or passing it through the rectum (flatulence). Half to two liters is produced normally in adults and may pass up to 14 times a day on an average. But the condition can be really bad for some individuals -one study noted a person who expelled gas 140 times daily, with 70 passages in a period of just four hours. Although every one has gas, but why do some suffer from it more than others? the answer lies either in their biological conditions of their gastro-intestinal tract or in their eating habits. The gas usually comes from two sources

 (a) The air that is swallowed in with food while eating

 (b) As a part of normal breakdown of certain undigested foods by harmless bacteria naturally present in the large intestine.

  • Homeopathy can be a great help for those who suffer from this? too much gas? problem. Homeopathic medicines carbo veg, lycopodium, china and nux vomica lead the homeopathic table in treating this problem.
  • A constitutional homoeopathic treatment will cure you permanently 
  • You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance

Periods ke time aids ka khatra jyada hota hai, condom hamesha use karna chahiye, migraine me normal painkillers kha sakte ho par doctor job dikhana jaruri hai, masturbation once or twice daily will not affect you but if you do more than that then it will affect you.

What Affects Your Sexual Life?

What Affects Your Sexual Life?

Some Treatments May Affect Penis Size

Life is full of trade-offs. Giving up that extra dessert in order to look good in those tight pants, for example, or eating in instead of out in order to help finance that vacation trip. But sometimes there may be unexpected trade-offs a guy doesn't even know about. For example, occasionally a man may need some medical treatments to address a concern but they could have unexpected side effects. And if those side effects are in the area of penis care, that can be especially concerning. Yet there are some treatments which may just do that, by potentially decreasing penis size - not something that most men would want to happen.

Peyronie's disease

Peyronie's disease is a condition in which a man's penis bends at an extreme angle when erect. Many, many men have some degree of curvature to their erect penis, either up, down or to one side, and that is perfectly normal. But with Peyronie's disease, the curvature is so extreme that it can interfere with proper functioning and often causes pain when the penis is erect.

One of the side effects of Peyronie's disease is that the curvature can effectively shorten the penis. But penis size can also be affected by treatments for Peyronie's. If a patient undergoes plication surgery for Peyronie's, penis size is almost always affected. That's because plication involves shortening the unaffected side of the penis, tucking it in so that the bent side straightens out. The amount of length lost depends upon the degree of curvature.

Implants

Some men have severe erectile dysfunction issues that are non-responsive to most recommended treatments. In such cases, a man may opt for an inflatable penis prosthetic, commonly called an implant. While many men hope that this procedure will actually result in greater penis size, it often has the opposite effect. The surgical procedure to place the implant in the penis may result in some scarring, which may take off a small degree of erect penis size. Many men are happy for this trade-off if it means they can once again enjoy a more active sexual life - but they should know about the potential reduction in penis size so they can make an informed choice.

Prostate surgery

Prostate issues, especially prostate cancer, are serious. In some cases, the optimal treatment is a radical prostatectomy, in which the entire prostate and seminal vesicles are removed. In such cases, there may be a diminution of penis size, most likely related to the unwanted development of penile fibrosis.

In some cases, other treatments for prostate cancer may result in less penis length. There have been such instances reported both for androgen suppression coupled with radiation therapy and for androgen suppression alone.

Some men may face an inevitable trade-off with penis size in order to treat prostate cancer, but because of the potential seriousness of the cancer, it may be necessary.

Men who experience a negative change in penis size due to medical treatments may experience self-consciousness, sorrow or depression. In such cases, they should seek professional mental health assistance to properly process and handle these feelings.

Treatments that affect penis size but cure other issues can be challenging. So can maintaining everyday penis health, but that challenge is made easier by the regular use of a superior penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). A crème with the amino acid L-arginine can help keep penile blood vessels healthy by helping create valuable nitric oxide. The crème should also include vitamins A, B5, C, D and E; topical application directly to the member can help boost penis health.

Principle of Similars in Homeopathy

Principle of Similars in Homeopathy

Law of Similars

Homeopathy is a department of natural medicine based on the Principle of Similars and a non-toxic system of experimental science of therapeutics originated in Germany. From Germany (year 1796) homeopathy spreads to Austria (1816) and then to the rest of the Europe. The birth date of the founder and father of Homeopathy i.e. 10 April every year is celebrated as ‘World Homeopathy Day’ and the week following his birthday (10-16th April) is celebrated as ‘World Homeopathy Awareness Week’

Principle of similar (Let likes be treated by likes) talks about the pathogenetic and symptomatic similarity between the drug and the disease and is stated as

The drug which is most likely to cure or relieve a case of disease is that which when administered to a healthy person, has shown itself capable of producing symptoms and change in sensation experienced which most closely resemble those of the case of disease.

In 1790, he discovered principle of similar when he found that drug which was known to be curative actually produces those very symptoms when given to a healthy person. He said, “Substances which arouse a kind of fever extinguish the types of intermittent fevers…Cinchona cures intermittent fever by virtue of its power to produce in the healthy, a similar affection”. But the principle was published in 1796.

The same drug acts differently when given to a person under conditions of disease from what it would do in the same person when in health. The powers of any drug over the human organism, is the sum-total of the symptoms and alternations it has caused when introduced into a healthy organism, and the symptoms and morbid changes it has removed when given to the sick 

In other words, the specific curative property of a drug lies in its power of producing similar symptoms in a healthy individual i.e. the drugs have sickness-making as well as sickness curing properties, the sickness being the same [3]. What a drug can cause it can cure; and that if you want to know what a drug can cure, you have only to discover what it can cause 

Homoeopathy maintains that there is a constant relationship between the effect of drugs on the healthy and the curative reactions they call forth in the sick, so, clearly, you must test drugs on healthy people. If a compound caused symptoms in healthy volunteers, it should then also serve as a remedy for patients who actually suffer from such symptoms.

Hahnemann found that when a medicine was able to produce changes similar in nature and expression to that of the natural disease in the patient, it stimulated a response in spite of obstacles or sluggishness of the system. This response was the natural one the body used in curing itself. The response was a temporary aggravation of one or more symptoms followed by quick amelioration.

Disease can be cured by a medicinal substance given in small doses that produces similar symptoms in health people when given in large doses. In simple words, the medicine can cure when given in picogram doses what it can cause in milligram doses.

1. Red onion when peeled makes your eyes water and your nose burn. If you are having an attack of hay fever/common cold with watering eyes and a burning nose or a cold which is ‘worse indoors, better in open air’, a homeopathic remedy made from onion called allium cepa can relieve it.

2. Poison ivy causes redness, intense itching, burning, blistering and sometimes stiff muscles. Potentised poison ivy called as rhus tox (a homeopathy medicine) has been used for herpes, burns, eczema, allergy, arthritis, etc.

3. When you are stung by a bee you feel a burning, stinging pain and the tissues surrounding the area swell up. Some relief is gained from applying cold to the area. If you had swollen tonsils with burning and stinging pain relieved by cold, a homeopathic remedy prepared from the same source Apis Mellificia could cure.

4. Coffee keeps people awake and alert. A remedy prepared from coffee called Coffea cruda in very small doses might be appropriate for helping someone with insomnia with an overly alert mind.

5. Eyebright causes a clear and bland nasal discharge along with tears that burn and irritate the skin under the eye. The homeopathic medicine Euphrasia prepared from eyebright cures it.

6. Quinine (derived form Cinchona bark) given in daily doses to a healthy person can cause symptoms similar to malaria. Indeed, the Cinchona officinalis, a homeopathic medicine prepared from cinchona bark, is curative in many patients with malaria.

7. White Hellebore, in large doses, causes violent purging that leads to severe dehydration-symptoms similar to choleraVeratrum album, a homeopathic medicine prepared from White Hellebore is effective against cholera

8. Belladonna, a homeopathic medicine, is used to treat scarlet fever (fever due to Group A Streptococcal (bacterial) Infection), since the symptoms of belladonna poisoning closely resemble those of scarlet fever

9. Human body can tolerate about 7 grams of salt per day, but if we triple it and give 21 grams per day, we will have a very sick person within a fortnight with a host of symptoms peculiar to the substance given in high enough doses. A medicine prepared from common salt called Natrum mur can cure host of diseases ranging from hypertension to depression.
