Hello, you seem to be sleeping only for 4 hours a day however human body needs atleast 6-8 hours of sleep to work efficiently. Try avoiding caffiene rich items like tea, coffee, colas 4 hours prior to sleep. Have warm milk at bedtime add khas- khas and elaichi powder to it. Take warm water bath and then try to sleep. If this does not work then consult your physician. Also try to do 60 minutes of physical activity daily but not closer to sleeping time.

Masturbation is harmless if done in moderation. The average size of the erect/aroused penis ranges from 3.2 inches to 6.5 inches, but even lower sizes don't make a difference to the ability to have sex, please one's partner or have children. The aroused female vagina only extends between 3 to 4 inches, and even here, the most sensitive parts are towards the outside. Girth is a little more important, but most important is how you use it. So please focus on the person you are with and make sure your partner enjoys the experience - there is really nothing more important than that in sex. Anyone who tells you that size is important doesn't really know what he is talking about. The only way to increase penis size or girth (thickness) is through surgery, but this is painful and risky. None of the medicines marketed to increase penis size work and they are a waste of money.

I hv digestion problem n suffering frm fissure problem so please suggests some home remedies.
Hello, take BC NO 25 , 5 tabs twice daily after meals. Follow these home remedies:- 1.Aloe vera is very soothing and possesses anti-inflammatory properties, which are very beneficial in treating anal fissures at home. You can directly apply some aloe vera gel or ointment on the affected area three to four times a day. This will help heal the pain and infection. 2.Wheat germ oil helps in quick healing of the anal fissures, and is a very effective home remedy for this treatment. Just apply a little wheat germ oil all over the affected area and leave it on for half an hour. Wipe dry with a soft and wet tissue after this duration. This application should be done at least twice a day.

Hello. I had unsafe sex with my partner just one week ago. Now today I found blood in my stool and while in releasing it I felt very pain today. Now I am going for checkup with my mom, I am afraid that does medical test reports can shows up my pregnancy? Does my tests will reveal my pregnancy? Or I am not pregnant yet? Pls give me answer as soon as possible.

One week period is very much less to think about pregnacy unless you had repeated sex earlier. More ever bleeding is in stool occured while straining during defecation. It could be from piles or anal fissure.

For this season what are the fruits that are beneficial and which fruits to avoid.Please tell.

For this season what are the fruits that are beneficial and which fruits to avoid.Please tell.
Hello, good question. There is no fruit to avoid as every fruit is unique in its own flavonoids, anti oxidants and vitamins content. Point to be noted is eat sugar rich fruits like banana, mango, chikoo, pine apple, custard apple when you are on empty stomach and before sunset. Best to include in breakfast with good protein. If you are allergic to any fruit avoid it. Seasonal fruits are all good as they possess highest quality of nutrients in the season they grow. So grab the opportunity to eat all varieties of fruits that are available. But limit the quantity to 2 per day. Hope this helps you.
