The Stigma Attached To Infertility!

The Stigma Attached To Infertility!

Infertility is a condition that can be caused due to a variety of reasons, for both males as well as females. Yet, it also comes with plenty of emotional baggage because there is a great deal of social stigma attached to childless parents, especially in the developing countries like India, where we still hold on to traditional thinking which does not really justify modern day realities.



Understanding Infertility in the Developing World: As per medical science, infertility is defined as a problem that is faced by couples who do not manage to conceive even after a year of trying without any birth control measures. In countries like ours, there is a great social stigma that is attached to being childless. As per many studies by the World Health Organization (WHO), about 15% of couples the world over are affected by infertility. Also, such cases go undetected because there is a great social stigma attached to the same. Further, there may be underlying conditions like Tuberculosis which may have been undiagnosed because people do not like to talk to doctors about the symptoms. The main problem in countries like India, and others areas is that people do not open up about such problems and they consider doctors and other medical practitioners as strangers.

Still in the Dark Ages: Even though we have made the transition from an agricultural country where we would pray to the elements and wait for signs for all our everyday activities from harvesting to childbirth, to an industrial country we are still in the dark ages as far as our social setup goes. There are many educated and well-heeled families where being childless is considered as an issue. And many people tend to go to astrologers and temples to change their fate, where a simple visit to a doctor and procedures like IVF, or adoption as the last resort, can also work out.


Infertility Stigma for Males and Females: For an infertile couple, the problem may stem from the male, or the female or both partners. There are still many social stigmas that are attached to this and many people in countries like India tend to call the woman barren, if she is unable to bear a child. In many cases, the male partner does not even go in for a check up as it is not even considered as an option that the problem might lie with him. Male erectile dysfunction, ejaculation problems, and general infertility can cause a range of issues for the couple when it comes to conception. So it is imperative to have the same checked by the doctor so that a sperm test can also be conducted and the treatment can carry on accordingly with the help of IUI or IVF. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I am 21 years old. I had taken unwanted 72 within 5 hours of intercourse and I was on my 5th day of period when I had sex with my bf. Even after my period stopped on 7th day I had red discharge for 4-5 days even after my periods. My periods are usually on 13th of every month. And still now it hadn’t came. Am I pregnant? It is delayed by 1 week. Help me please.

5-10 days after unwanted 72 one gets withdrawal bleeding and cycle of period changes. So if you got withdrawal bleeding you can not again get period as per previous dates. But if you did not get any bleeding after unwanted 72 and period is missed then do urine pregnancy test.

Please tell me the name of a numbing gel/cream I really don't want to feel any pain for first time intercourse I want to use it for the first time. I am a virgin and married. I want to use numbing gel/cream to numb hymen ONLY FOR FIRST TIME so that my partner can penetrate and after that we will start proper intercourse after 20-30 min when my hymen will become normal, I don't want any suggestions that "first time it will pain" "don't be afraid, try long foreplay" etc. Because we have tried all but whenever he tries to penetrate I feel lot of pain so we stop. My married life is in danger please please I beg you help me tell me name of a numbing gel/cream to numb my hymen only for first time. Hope someone will understand my situation and tell me name of gel or cream.

Hi lybrate-user, Understand the situation Whether the first time or the millionth your vagina is no different, it’s designed to have sex without pain as when aroused it will relax, lubricate, open and increase in size, as it’s flexible it will also stretch to accommodate a penis and then return to normal after sex.  Most commonly if sex hurts the first time it is due to the woman not being ready, either not emotionally ready so tensing-up or not physically ready so not aroused enough for penetration. This means penetration is forced, causing pain and damage which increases risk of STDs and infection, your vagina is not designed to make sex unpleasant or harmful, it’s designed for pleasure.  Use more foreplay, ideally orgasm at least once before intercourse, and use lubrication if/when needed, go slowly and communicate with your partner. Enjoy sex without penetration for a while and if that develops into intercourse, if he can slide himself easily into you during foreplay then carry on like that - allow some natural progression, rather than stopping and saying 'Now it is time for penetration' take pressure off by letting it happen naturally.  The only possible difference to your vagina would be if your hymen is intact - which is rare as by the time you have sex it’s likely to have worn away, stretched or torn from foreplay or masturbation – sex doesn’t necessarily tear your hymen as it can stretch, even if it tears it doesn’t always hurt. If you believe the myth that sex hurt the first time then you NEED to educate yourself a lot more about how your vagina works and about sex before you have sex, these are basic things someone of your age and someone who is about to have sex should know. Learn how to prevent possible pain rather than accepting it as inevitable, because it's really not. If you are nervous then this will also help ease those nerves (nerves can make sex painful) because you'll know what to expect and how to prevent problems such as pain during sex - knowledge combats fear.  Dear, reason I am not suggesting you any numbing cream because it would be dangerous as you can't feel when damage is being done - this means you cannot stop him when he's causing you harm, so he may cause even more harm putting you at higher risk of infection and STD's, also when the numbing cream wears off the pain may remain.  If you want you can use lubricant but avoid numbness cream Thanks.

Shea Butter For Skin - Why It Is So Good?

Shea Butter For Skin - Why It Is So Good?

Shea butter is derived from the nuts of Karite trees (also known as Mangifolia) – which is predominantly found in many parts of Africa. It is sourced out in the form of a nutty oily substance and when the nuts are crushed, boiled and fermented, it leaves behind a light colored fat, commonly referred to as Shea butter.

Shea butter is edible and is used in a wide range of culinary cuisines across the globe. Shea butter may be refined or unrefined. It is a stock house of essential vitamins and minerals and finds many applications. The butter is beneficial for your health, skin and hair. Many health-care products available in the market today contain Shea butter too. It is also considered as a super food for your skin and has enough essential fatty acids and vitamins that boost your skin health. We have listed down some of its benefits for the skin:

  1. Sun Screen- Shea butter protects against the ultraviolet radiations of the sun and can act as a natural deterrent for the exposure. It is also the best bet for your skin during winter and moisturizes your skin to a great degree.
  2. Heals Skin Spots- Shea butter has remarkable healing properties and is used as a base in many medicinal ointments. It is effective in the treatment of scars and skin blemishes. It is also beneficial for chapped skin and fights effectively against skin pigmentation.
  3. Anti-Ageing Properties- Shea butter has amazing skin tightening properties and stimulates the production of collagen. The vitamin A levels in it can keep the skin supple and nourished. The butter also soothes your dry skin and brings out the natural glow.
  4. Baby Care- Shea butter is a natural moisturizer and basically, has no chemicals in it. Thus it is an excellent baby care product and is safe for the sensitive skin of your babies. It can also be used as an after bath lotion or can be used against diaper rash. It also hydrates your baby’s skin and retains the water content.
  5. Lip Care- Cold months can be especially harmful for your lips. Shea butter is easily absorbable and can moisturize your skin and lips during the cold winter seasons easily. It acts as a natural lip balm and can protect your lips from dry weather. It also greatly benefits chapped lips symptoms.
  6. Restores Skin Elasticity- Shea butter restores the elasticity of the skin and can help in maintaining an even skin tone. It acts as a natural toner and improves the flexibility of the skin. As a result, your skin appears supple and hydrated at all times. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Labour Pain and False Contractions - How to Differentiate Between the Two?

Labour Pain and False Contractions - How to Differentiate Between the Two?

It is likely for you to experience false labour pain or false contractions before the beginning of true labour during pregnancy. This is called Braxton Hicks contractions, and it is the way of telling the body to get ready for the real labour pain on the day of giving birth. However, these false contractions do not indicate that the labour has started or will begin shortly.

How do false labour contractions feel like?
Women may get a tightening feeling in their abdomen, which comes and goes away, due to Braxton Hicks or false labor contractions. These false contractions may feel like menstrual cramps. These contractions are unlike true labour and usually do not cause pain. They do not occur regularly and do not get closer together. They do not last for very long or get worse with time. These false contractions may be felt during the second or third trimester of pregnancy.

The difference between Braxton Hicks and true labor contractions
There are several differences between true labor pain and false labour contractions. These are as follows:

  1. Comparing how often these contractions occur allows us to differentiate between true labour pains and false contractions. False labour contractions are irregular while true contractions occur at regular intervals. They last for over a minute, and they get stronger and closer with the passage of time.
  2. The change in these contractions are based on your movement, which allows us to differentiate between the two types. False labour contractions may end when you take a walk or rest, and stop when you change your position. In case of true labour pains, the contractions keep on continuing irrespective of any kind of movement or change in position. They do not stop even when you take some rest.
  3. The strength of true labour pain and false contractions is different. False labor contractions are weak in general and there are less chances of them getting worse. They are stronger in the beginning and gradually weaken. However, true labour contractions get increasingly stronger with time.
  4. We can differentiate between the two types of contractions on the basis of the areas which are affected with pain. False labour contractions only cause slight pain in the front part of the abdomen and the pelvis. True labour pain is much more intensive in nature. They usually begin from the lower back and move to the front abdomen region. They may start in the abdomen and move back as well.

If you are not sure and cannot differentiate between true labour pains and Braxton Hicks contractions, it is essential for you to consult a gynaecologist. A doctor will be able to identify the true nature of the contractions.

You will need to get a prescription of antibiotics as there is a possibility of local infection. In the meantime use cansoft-Cl vaginal pessaries locally daily for 6 consecutive nights and see if it makes a difference.
