I had a unprotected sex with my husband on the 3rd day of my period, actually its stopped on 3rd day morning also. Is there any chance of pregnancy? I am really worried about it.

Common Penis Problems That Fitness Buffs Should Be Aware Of

Common Penis Problems That Fitness Buffs Should Be Aware Of

There's no doubt that regular exercise is good for the mind and body. But a regular gym goer has a host of penis problems that they're more susceptible to than those sitting on the couch. Between less than sanitary conditions, communal bathrooms and lots of sweat, your typical gym is ripe with bacteria that can leave your penis vulnerable to discomfort. But with a little knowledge, many of the most common penis problems found at the gym are easily diagnosable and treatable.

Here are the three most common penis problems found at the gym and how you can solve them:

1) Yeast Infection - Most commonly thought of as a female health problem, men can also find themselves with a yeast infection, especially if they're frequenting the gym. This type of infection is caused by a fungus called candida. While candida is usually present on the body and perfectly healthy, an overgrowth of it can be the cause of a penile yeast infection. Symptoms of a male yeast infection typically includes itching and a burning sensation accompanied by a red rash or white, shiny patches on the penis. In some cases, a thick white substance may be present.

Candida thrives in dark, warm and moist conditions, making it essential to change out of sweaty gym clothes as soon as your exercise is over. Spending the day in used gym clothes can make one very susceptive to this common problem. Curing a male yeast infection will require an over the counter antifungal crème.

2) "Jock Itch" - Tinea cruris, the fungus behind "jock itch," is another common ailment for the regular exerciser. Like candida, tinea cruris flourishes in dark, warm and moist areas, making the groin and inner thighs especially vulnerable after a vigorous workout. Because tinea cruris is a form of ringworm, it has a distinct mark, making it easy to identify and diagnose. A man dealing with "jock itch" will suffer from a red, scaly, circular rash with raised edges that often itches and burns.

Like yeast infections, "jock itch" can be easily avoided by swapping soiled gym clothes with fresh, clean options after a workout. It's also essential not to share damp towels or be in close contact with others that may be experiencing tinea cruris. Over the counter antifungal crèmes will clear up this very common infection.

3) Chafing - In and out of the gym, penis chafing is a common problem that affects many men. However, gym conditions can make active men particular vulnerable to this uncomfortable condition. Damp skin is more likely to cause friction, making excessive sweat a top culprit for a chafed penis. Unlike yeast infections or jock itch, penis chafing is marked by red, flakey skin and, while uncomfortable, won't cause the acute itching and burning common with infections.

To combat chafing, opt for looser, breathable clothing. Synthetic materials tend to be best as cotton can trap moisture. In the case of chafing, a delicate moisturizer can also be applied to relieve uncomfortable symptoms. A cool compress with a clean, dampened towel can also quickly relieve irritation caused by chafing.

Relieving symptoms

While waiting for an antifungal crème to work, those afflicted with a yeast infection or jock itch can quickly relieve their symptoms. Delicately wash the infected area with warm water and a mild soap. If the infection is particularly severe, just water will work as soap may irritate the area even more. After washing, gently pat the area dry and apply a high-quality penis health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil) designed to soothe and protect the sensitive penis area. While penis problems at the gym are common, they don't have to get in the way of an active lifestyle.

I am a diabetic, having fasting blood sugar is 230 and pp blood sugar is 295, can I drink weekly. If so how much and which category?

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the question. The blood glucose levels mentioned are very high, showing uncontrolled diabetes. In such a situation it is essential to achieve strict blood glucose control, otherwise there can be an invitation to serious long term complications of diabetes. As regards alcohol, medically in a diabetic person alcohol should be avoided as it has no nutritious value, can mask hypoglycemic symptoms plus in large quantity can damage liver. So it is my advise to avoid it. Rest is your choice. Thanks.

Has he got his blood sugar, Urine for glucose? Ask him to do exercise for muscle of the urinary bladder (to hold urine which tightens the muscles of urinary bladder for few seconds and slowly release the tension or the hold). Do it initially for 1-2 times a day, then gradually increase the frequency upto 5-6 times a day. Revert me back.
