Unprotected Intercourse and Pregnancy

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Gurgaon
Unprotected Intercourse and Pregnancy

Unprotected intercourse can lead to a pregnancy. But chances of pregnancy depend on which phase of the cycle was one intimate.

If there is a proper period after the episode then it is impossible that you are pregnant of that episode of intercourse.

However, a similar but lighter bleeding of a couple of days also can occur at nearly the same of your periods. But Beware this maybe an implantation bleed, which is an early sign of pregnancy.

So whenever in doubt its best to check with a home pregnancy test or consult a gynaecologist as soon as possible.

I must caution you against your weight. your BMI is very high. I am afraid mere dieting will not help you. morbid obesity is resistant to weight loss by dieting. rigorous exercise is a must. join a gym if you can and be extremely dedicated to it. you should eat a low carbohydrate and high protein diet.

Acid phase 30 is safe or not and tell about its side effect and how to use it.Please tell.

General Physician,
Acid phase 30 is safe or not and tell about its side effect and how to use it.Please tell.
While there is no cure for adhd, currently available treatments can help reduce symptoms and improve functioning. Treatments include medication, psychotherapy, education or training, or a combination of treatments. Medication for many people, adhd medications reduce hyperactivity and impulsivity and improve their ability to focus, work, and learn. Medication also may improve physical coordination. Sometimes several different medications or dosages must be tried before finding the right one that works for a particular person. Anyone taking medications must be monitored closely and carefully by their prescribing doctor. There are many symptoms of acid phos in our body. But most of the homeopathic physician likes to use this remedy for treating those young people who looks matured than their age, who rise quickly and who are overtaxed physically and also mentally. Acid phos mother tincture and 30 potency are effective to remove the problems of young people.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)

He is having hydrocele. Is he need to worry to much he has no discomfort but is worried about any sexual discomfort.
Hydroceles should not affect erectile function. The hydrocele does not affect the function of the testicle and for this reason does not change hormonal function. However, very large hydroceles can undoubtedly make sexual intercourse uncomfortable, and for this reason may lead to loss of an erection.

Porn addiction will require you to work with your friend. You will need to help him identify the triggers that lead to him watching porn. These maybe emotional or maybe just a regular time of the day that he tends to watch porn. You will also have to help him find altenative modes of entertainment, something that he enjoys like exercise, music or good books. There will be tendency to get back to watching he has to maintain a dairy where he writes down whenever he has a craving to watch porn. This dairy helps you and him keep track of the triggers. If it is very difficult to control an anti-obsessive may help.

Psoriasis - Know Its Homeopathy Remedies!

Psoriasis - Know Its Homeopathy Remedies!

What is Psoriasis? 

Psoriasis is a common skin disease characterized by thickened patches of inflamed, red skin covered with thick, silvery scales. The elbows and knees are the most common areas affected by psoriasis. It will often appear in the same place on both sides of the body. The patches can range in size from smaller than a dime to larger than a hand. 

Description of Psoriasis-

Normally, skin cells mature and shed after about a month. In psoriasis, the cell maturation speeds up, taking only three to four days. Because the lower layer of skin cells divide more rapidly than normal, dead cells accumulate in thicker patches on the skin's outermost layer called the 'Epidermis'. 

Forms & Classifications-

Psoriasis occurs in a variety of forms that differ in their intensity, duration, location, shape and pattern of scales. The most common forms are: 

  1. Plaque Psoriasis: Plaque psoriasis is the most common form of psoriasis. It is characterized by raised, inflamed, red lesions covered with a silvery-white buildup of dead skin cells (scales). This is found primarily on the Body, elbows, knees, scalp and finger or toe nails. 
  2. Guttate Psoriasis: Guttate psoriasis occurs most frequently in children and is characterized by numerous small, red, drop-like scaly macules that develop rapidly over a wide area of skin. This may appear following an infection, most frequently strep throat
  3. Inverse Psoriasis: Inverse psoriasis occurs in the armpit, under the breast, in skin folds, around the groin, in the cleft between the buttocks and around the genitals. It is usually pink and irritated but lacks the thick scale seen in other forms of psoriasis. 
  4. Pustular Psoriasis: Pustular psoriasis is a rare form characterized by small pustules (whitehead-like lesions) found all over the body or confined all over the body or confined to the palms, soles and other isolated areas of the body.?
  5. Palmoplantar Psoriasis: This type of Psoriasis are most likely to show up on the palms and soles. It can also appear on the tops of your feet, backs of your hands, and on knuckles and nails. It may be triggered by an injury to the skin, an infection, or another skin condition such as hand dermatitis. It may first occur during a period of psychosocial stress. Lesions are like cuts which bleed.

 ?Psoriasis - Homeopathic Treatment

The patient should be encouraged to expose maximum to sunlight and avoid trauma during the active phase.

Homeopathic treatment of psoriasis – Homeopathy is one of the most popular holistic systems of medicine. The selection of remedy is based upon the theory of individualization and symptoms similarity by using holistic approach.

This is the only way through which a state of complete health can be regained by removing all the signs and symptoms from which the patient is suffering. The aim of homeopathy is not only to treat psoriasis but to address its underlying cause and individual susceptibility. As far as therapeutic medication is concerned; several well-proved remedies are available for psoriasis treatment that can be selected on the basis of cause, location, sensation, modalities and extension of psoriasis. For individualized remedy selection and treatment, the patient should consult a qualified homeopathic doctor in person.

Hii I have questions which medicine is better for when we doing sex to get tight more time my penis.
Home Remedy- 1-Onion is very good vegetable to treat sexual impotence. It increases libido and strengthens reproducing organs. White onions are best for this purpose. 2-Take about 5-10 gm root powder of Ladyfinger in a glass of milk. Add 2 tsp of mishri in this milk and drink it. This will prove helpful in improving sexual vigour. Treatment- apply pranacharya gopal oil on your penis and give a massage. It will strengthen your nerves and erection power will get better.

Any home remedies to remove corns from toes. What causes the corns and how to prevent it.
tendency of getting corns can be permanently removed by proper homeopathic treatment. the more get it removed surgically, more frequently you will will have it. surgery is not a solution. these are mostly caused by friction between an area of out foot and footwear. so would suggest you to wear shoes or slippers with soft base. avoid walking bare feet. you can apply thuja ointment on the corn twice a day and especially before wearing slipper or shoes.

Exercising Post Heart Attack

DM Cardiology
Cardiologist, Delhi
Play video

I am Dr. Nitish Chandra. I am a director incubational cardiologist at Fortis Escort Heart Institute, New Delhi. I have been working here for the last 22 years. Today I would like to give a very simple tip after the heart attack that how much they should exercise.

This is a very common myth that after the heart attack patients should not exercise but after the heart attack treatment is over and the patient goes home, he should start exercising. Here, the patient says that, “We don’t have time; we are busy.” So the tip is that they should follow the Rule of 4. This rule means that they should exercise for at least 4 days in a week. During every day, they should exercise for 40 minutes and during that time they should cover a distance of 4 Kilometers. So this is what I the Rule of 4. The Rule of 4 means 4 times a week for 40 minutes each covering a distance of 4 kilometers. If a person does this much of exercise, then he can keep his heart healthy. So, you people should not have this excuse that “I don’t have time.” If you follow the Rule of 4, you can keep your heart healthy.

If you have any further queries or questions regarding heart and heart related illnesses, you can contact me on lybrate.com.

Vitamin B5 And Healthy Penis

MD - General Medicine
Sexologist, Delhi
Vitamin B5 And Healthy Penis

There are numerous reasons why maintaining a healthy penis is important. A healthy penis makes a man feel more confident about himself; it enables him to perform at a higher level; it impresses partners (and potential partners); and it is a good indicator of overall health. Taking steps to maintain good penis health isn't complicated but it does require a little attention on a man's part - such as making sure his penis is enriched by vitamins and nutrients, including vitamin B5.

What exactly is vitamin B5?

Vitamin B5 is part of the B vitamin family, which consists of 8 members. These water soluble vitamins all play a role in the process by which the carbohydrates a person ingests gets translated into the energy the body needs to function properly. Fats and proteins also benefit from the B vitamin family's attention.

Also known as pantothenic acid, vitamin B5 has several specific functions, including:

- Helping to create the red blood cells that move throughout the body, delivering oxygen;

- Aiding in the adrenal glands' creation of testosterone and cortisol;

- Maintaining the health of the digestive system;

- Increasing acetylcholine (ACh), a neurotransmitter involved in sexual function;

- And synthesizing cholesterol in the body.

Where can it be found?

Vitamin B5's nickname, pantothenic, comes from the Greek and basically means "everywhere" - because vitamin B5 can be found in many different food sources. However, processing food tends to decrease or totally eliminate the vitamin B5 - so natural and "whole" foods are a better bet. These include meat (especially organ meat, like liver), fresh vegetables, chicken, turkey, milk, eggs, salmon and whole grains.

Because so much of modern man's diet consists of processed foods, people nowadays do not get as much vitamin B5 from their diets as they would have in the past. Therefore, taking vitamin B5 in supplementary form can be beneficial for many people.

The healthy penis

And how does vitamin B5 help maintain a healthy penis? Well, it is essential for proper cell metabolism and tissue maintenance, which the healthy penis definitely requires. This vitamin is also helpful in warding off infection, which has an obvious health benefit.

The role B5 plays in boosting energy via creation of healthy red blood cells has a benefit for the penis. After all, proper flow of highly-oxygenated blood is involved in the erectile process.

The fact that pantothenic acid is part of the process by which testosterone is created also has an impact. In men, testosterone is crucial for penile development, and it continues to play a role in maintaining a man's sex drive at an appropriate level. And as previously mentioned, vitamin B5 helps produce acetylcholine, which is part of the process by which the signals involved in sexual activity are transmitted to the penis.

No one vitamin or nutrient alone can be responsible for better sexual or penis health; however, vitamin B5 is definitely part of the "menu" of ingredients that have a strong impact on a man and his penis.

Men who are seeking routes to a healthy penis and wish to supplement their penile exposure to vitamin B5 should look into a top drawer penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). Many crèmes include vitamin B5 already because of the crucial role that it can play in penis health. However, the best crèmes will also contain other important ingredients, including L-arginine and L carnitine. L-arginine is an amino acid that helps the body to create nitric oxide, which in turn plays a role in keeping penile blood vessels open for increased blood flow. L carnitine is another amino acid, one with neuroprotective properties that can help restore diminished penile sensation.
