What Really Causes Personality Disorders?

What really causes personality disorders?

Personality disorders (pd) are anomalies in behavioral patterns of an individual that are characterized by impairments in personal and interpersonal functioning. These are maladaptive psychological conditions that can be mild or intense and can affect a person's relations with others. These are not triggered by the external factors but are inherent abnormalities of behavior and conduct.

The human psyche is a vast and complex field of study which is so diverse that no two cases of psychological dysfunction are the exact same. Personality disorders are of numerous types, each having a different set of causes and traits.

Broadly speaking, they can be classified into three extensive 'clusters' or categories.

Cluster a includes odd or eccentric disorders like paranoid pd,

Cluster b includes dramatic or erratic disorders such as antisocial pd, and

Cluster c includes fearful and anxious disorders like avoidant pd.

Personality disorders are caused by a wide range of factors which impact each individual in a different manner. The most basic and common causes of pd are as follows:

sexual abuse

physical abuse

emotional abuse

verbal abuse

In most cases, abuse occurs during childhood and the pd takes manifestation in the teenage and adult years. A combination of multiple factors gives rise to complicated disorders which have more acute symptoms. Accidents and trauma can also give rise to personality disorders later in life.

Counseling and psychological therapy are used to tackle the problem and alleviate symptoms. Each case requires a different kind of approach and sometimes intake of medication is also deemed necessary. Diagnosis is always subjective and takes into account various aspects of the patient's life.

Hello, Internal lubrication of your partner is not secreting properly,which is causing pain, burning and irritation during sex. Use artificial lubrication during sex,use condom as its surface reduces the friction and hence minimise the pain. These are symptomatic solutions. For permanent relief start ayurvedic medicines and avoid excess of spicy and fast foods for you wife.

Ectopic pregnancy usually occurs when the fallopian tube which connects the ovaries to uterus gets blocked or is diseased. You can try for pregnancy after 6 months of rest. There are definetly chances of normal pregnancy but risk of next ectopic cannot be fully ruled out. Its a matter of chance.

Hello, you may rule out pregnancy first with a urine pregnancy test and if the test is negative then the deal is likely to be stress induced and you may actually wait for another week to allow menses to return naturally before opting for progesterone withdrawal.

No if you do her during her period, no chance of pregnancy at all but there is chance of catching infections for both as the cervix opens during menses to allow uterine blood to flow out. This sex is better with condom only. If there is pain during sex means she has some injury or infections in her vagina so treat this first.

Dengue Fever - Causes, Treatment, and Management

MD

Dengue fever is a painful infection transmitted by the bite of one of the 4 closely related viruses that are carried by a type of mosquitoes known as Aedes mosquitoes. The infection is not directly from one person to another.

Symptoms: After the mosquito bite, symptoms set in about 4 to 6 days and can last up to 10 days (as noted below). Most are general symptoms which can be seen with any viral infection and therefore most dengue cases can go undetected.

Sudden high temperatures
Pain behind the eyes
Severe headaches
Swollen lymph nodes
Severe bone and muscle pains (this can lead to suspicion of dengue)
Fatigue
Nausea and vomiting
Skin rash that appears 3 to 5 days after the onset of fever
There could be in some cases gum bleeding, easy bruising, or nose bleeding

The dengue triad of symptoms is fever, headache and the skin rash. This could lead to suspicion and blood tests that can lead to diagnosis.

The acute phase lasts for about 2 weeks in most cases and there is no antibiotic (it is a viral infection) cure for it. The treatment is therefore symptomatic, aimed at reducing fever and pains.

If left untreated, especially in children, a severe case called as Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever (DHF) can occur, which affects children under 10 years of age and can cause failure of the circulatory system. This can also occur when a person is developing dengue for the second time. This is a serious form and can even lead to death; therefore the symptoms should be taken seriously and attended to immediately.

Diagnosis: Confirmation of dengue is through a blood test, where the virus is tested for.

Treatment: Being a viral infection, antibiotics are not effective against dengue. Pain killers with acetaminophen are preferred. Aspirin is avoided, as it can worsen bleeding. Complete bed rest, hydration and good nutrition are essential parts of the treatment. Being under medical supervision also helps watch out for complications. There is a vaccine under development that could become available in the next couple of years.

Prevention:

Always use mosquito repellents, even indoors
While being outdoors, use clothes that cover the arms and legs fully
Use a mosquito net if your area is highly infested with mosquitoes
Ensure the windows and doors are closed during the evening
If you are suspicious of having dengue, reach out to the doctor
Reduce chances for mosquitoes breeding by keeping the house clean
If there are family members with dengue, protect yourself and them from mosquitoes

Preventing dengue is the best way to manage it; however, if once infected, the person develops immunity to it. Reduced immunity can put the person at risk of developing the condition again.

Advice: 1. Back type of intercourse is not advisable. Sperm wastage will be there. 2. Do ultra sound scan to check your uterus inside walls and the eggs fom the ovary are adequate for pregnancy. 3. Check the husband sperm count adequate to cause pregnancy. 4. Intercourse should be in full swing between 12th to 16th day fom your mentrual cycle. That is the ovulation period, after intercourse chances of getting pregnancy is there. Good luck.

I had a sex with my boy friend before marriage but without using any protective methods. We did it but we dont complete it even we dont allow sperm to get in. Since it is first time because of fear and pain and not yet marrried we then stop doing it. For a note not even hymen get torn, but now I forgeted my periods due data so I ate a tablet for pre mensturation without geting its name too. But till now I dont feel my periods is coming and I had a sex absolutely 7 days before this day. But after consuming this tablet I experienced abnormal fow of thick white in my vagina. My doubt is am I pregnant or am I having any other problem in fallopian tube or uterus for such awkward dense white flow. Please help me.

check once for pregnency test....Treatment of irregular periods depends on the cause and your desire to have children in the future. Irregular periods can be caused by many different things. Changes in your body's level of the hormones estrogen and progesterone can disrupt the normal pattern of your period. That's why young girls going through puberty and women approaching menopause commonly have irregular periods. Other common causes of irregular periods include: ? Having an intrauterine device (IUD) ? Changing birth control pills or using certain medications ? Excessive exercise ? Polycystic ovary disease (PCOS) ? Pregnancy or breastfeeding ? Severe scarring (adhesions) of the lining of the uterus, a condition known as Asherman syndrome ? Stress ? Overactive thyroid or hyperthyroidism ? Thickening of or polyps on the uterine lining ? Uterine fibroids Turmeric Being a warming herb, turmeric is also considered helpful in regulating menstruation and balancing hormones. Its emmenagogue properties help stimulate menstrual flow. Moreover, its antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory properties relieve menstrual pain. ? Consume one-quarter teaspoon of turmeric with milk, honey or jaggery. Take it daily for several weeks or until you see improvement. ? You can also take turmeric in supplement form; consult your doctor for proper dosage.
