You and your girlfriend are liking each other and are wanting to have sex regularly. There is nothing wrong in it if you both are physically and mentally matured enough to have sex and if you both are unmarried and are having protected sex. This is not addiction. What makes you think that, you want to get rid of this? how do you look at this relationship matters a lot. Is it very casual for you both? or do you both want to take it to the next level and want to be committed to each other? kindly think about all such related issues. All the best.

You need to take medication as per your doctor's recommendation. Do not discontinue, alter, modify or change it in any way. Take it for the prescribed period of time. Premature termination of treatment can lead to relapse or worsening of symptoms. It becomes more difficult to treat after that.

How I take medication to take less stress what are the symptoms and how I protect with this to our.
Dear lybrate-user, hello! first of all please do not opt for medication straight away. Try to release your stress by allowing yourself to'let go' of anything that is making you stress. If there is any kind of negative trigger in your life, just release the control of that trigger, and allow it to go. This will help you release the extra burden that you are carrying. If you believe in god, then close your eyes to imagine god carrying your burdens. Imagine god saying to you, to not be anxious or worried, he has your back covered. Try and surrender all your pain and stress in the hands of god. If you do not believe in god, then just think'yourself' to be your best friend. Write down your stress on the piece of paper and burn it, this should help you a little. Rest I am always there to help you more. Stay blessed. Regards.

Hi lybrate-user! Do you want to help him or you want him to undergo treatment for the same. Okay whatever it is he should volunteer to undergo treatment for the same. If he is hesitant then you can definitely help him overcome this problem completely. First I need to know from when and what is the cause was it love failure or someone close to him accordingly only I can assist you to help him anyway, my suggestion is try to divert his attention into something crazy like depends on his interests otherwise. Let him to cry and let him scold. Console him a lot. Talk positive to him always. If you need further assistance feel free to contact me either through text chat or call me. Take care of you as well as your friend. Try to be supportive.

Hi lybrate-user. your stress is the body's response to the demands of life & it also involves your emotions and mind which is eventually affecting your health try to talk about what issues have led to stress. Try relaxation techniques like deep breathing, meditation or involve some activity like yoga or dance whatever you like. Try to change your negative thought patterns if you have any, focus more on positive and keep doing reality testing to check if your nt making exaggerations or assumptions abt issues. Talk about what is stressing you more often to your dear one.

All the effects, non- relaxation on body are due to known or unknown stress. That is why the disease once starts not cured with medicine completely & occurs again & again in one form or the other so there is need of mind management/ counselling (after research on lacking facts why in spite of so much knowledge on mind, stress & disease is on increase) for permanent stop to stress & automatically disease by knowing all the reasons for stress & other associated effects which mind comes to know in 1st session. These are automatically cured if they are of small duration. Mind being used in stress will be totally converted into professional progress or any other aspects of life. Mind management sessions - 3 to 4 hrs.

The Connection Between Erectile Dysfunction And Depression

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Sexologist, Jodhpur
The Connection Between Erectile Dysfunction And Depression

Being unable to deal with erectile dysfunction can cause men to lose their self-esteem, feel angry, anxious and frustrated, or even lose interest in sex altogether. This can threaten their relationships and may even result in depression.

Erectile dysfunction is treatable, but the time before and during treatment may be difficult. Here is some advice to assist you and your partner in getting your sex life back on track.

The Connection Between Erectile Dysfunction and Depression

Think of the brain as a highly sensitive sex organ. Sexual desire starts in the brain and works its way down. That's because of special brain chemicals known as neurotransmitters. These chemicals increase communication between brain cells and trigger more blood flow to the sex organs. The problem is, with depression and other mood disorders, the brain circuits that communicate using these chemicals don't function properly.

Many men and women with depression tell of having low or no sexual desire. And that puts a tremendous strain on intimate relationships.

Diagnosing Erectile Dysfunction and Depression:

Erectile dysfunction is a very common problem as about 50% of men above 50 years of age suffer from it. Therefore, it is crucial to recognize depression when it is part of the problem. Here is how depression is diagnosed when it is known you have erectile dysfunction:

  1. Loss of Sexual Desire
  2. Erectile dysfunction starts happening after a traumatic event like loss of a job or of a loved one
  3. Feelings of stress, anxiety or frustration
  4. Pessimistic outlook to life

Coping with Erectile Dysfunction and Depression:

  1. Antidepressants: Antidepressants are used to treat depression, however some antidepressants worsen erectile dysfunction, therefore it is crucial that you explicitly explain your condition to your doctor.
  2. 2. Therapy: Therapy is performed by a licensed mental health expert who will identify and help you overcome all the issues which are depressing you.

If you wish to discuss on any specific problem, you can consult a sexologist and ask a free question.

For calcium deficiencies you need to give her calcium supplements. Also check her vitamin d level. For knee arthritis pain a heating pad or cold pack can feel really good on achy joints. Use whichever one feels better unless you have an injury, in which case cold is best for the first couple of days. You can apply cold or heat several times a day. Just remember to cover the cold pack with a towel and keep your heating pad at a low setting to avoid burning your skin. Whether you use heat or cold, remove it after 20 to 30 minutes. Physical activity is essential for people with osteoarthritis, whether it means walking around your apartment. Activities that cause pain should be avoided temporarily. -if the knee is swollen or sore, the following positions and activities you should avoid until knee pain and swelling resolve: squatting kneeling twisting and pivoting see a physiotherapist for stretching and strengthening exercises of leg muscles. Best wishes.

Hi. I am depressed and I take marijuana because relaxation. How to remove smoking from my life.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Guwahati
Marijuana is a substance of abuse & should never be used to reduce stress or achieve relaxation. If some problem is there in your life which you are not able to cope with, then seek professional help. Consult a Psychiatrist who will evaluate you & make your diagnosis, & then prescribe you medicines or advise you counseling sessions accordingly. With treatment, you will definitely come out of the current situation. Marijuana is a greenish-gray mixture of the dried flowers (buds, leaves, stems and seeds of Cannabis sativa—the hemp plant. It is a substance of abuse. Frequent marijuana users have increased irritability, mood swings, sleep disturbance, decreased appetite, cravings, restlessness etc. Marijuana does not have any beneficial effects on the body & harms in various ways. So would suggest that you quit smoking marijuana at the earliest. Now-a-days de-addiction treatments are available for quitting all substances of abuse including marijuana. Such treatment includes detoxification & rehabilitation program. Talk to the psychiatrist & start your treatment at the earliest for it also. With treatment you can quit smoking marijuana .Medical detoxification is the first stage of de addiction treatment, when the addicted person is treated with medicines. The withdrawal symptoms which occur on sudden stopping of an addictive substance are managed through detox treatment. Medical detoxification systematically and safely will withdraw you from the marijuana. The next phase is the Rehabilitation program which includes counseling sessions & other behavioral therapies. These sessions have important role in the de addiction process. Counseling sessions will help to enhance your motivation skills to stay sober, build skills to resist smoking marijuana, replace marijuana-using activities with constructive and rewarding non marijuana-using activities, and improve problem-solving abilities. Behavioral therapy will work on interpersonal relationships and your ability to function effectively in the family and community. Wish you speedy recovery.

Grieving for the loss of a loved an absolutely normal reaction, and at times necessary, for one to achieve closure. Give yourselves some time to cope with the loss. Try and distract yourself by doing things you enjoy doing. If it continues to be difficult, and you remain withdrawn, seek professional therapy, which can help to get over your loss more easily. Don't continue to suffer for too long, else you run the risk of spiraling into depression. Good luck.

Lybrate-user I would like to say that your lifestyle may not be proper. For body pains we would like to know that if you are lying down directly under the fan? that may cause heaviness. Another cause is high uric acid and guoty diathesis. So avoid more legumes in diet. You should also check your diet. It must healthy with less cholesterol and less sugar. Take salads and fruits and vitamin b12 and drink plenty of water. Avoid roti in any form.
