You feel muscle cramps during periods. I advise you to do meditation for mental strength by doing slow and deep breathing relaxation exercises in the morning. Take proper balanced vegetarian diet. Take lots of water and fluids. Avoid garlic and red chilly and non veg and eggs. Follow this and inform.

Doctor I'm hesitating to explain my problem to u. But it's necessary, so I'm explain. 10 days ago, I have a sex with my girlfriend. At nights time, I had use a condom. But in morning time I don't use a condom. And I know that no sperms is passed in her vagina. But I am worried that if she will get pregnant. There may be a problem for me. And I shall also wants to share that, her vagina is still sealed because my penis cannot get under it more three inch. And on the same day, after having sex with me, her vagina had through a white like liquid. It may be oval. Like sperms. Her age is 20 years now. So please help me that iss she will pregnant? Please help doctors.

An unprotected sex (without using condom, as in your case) can cause pregnancy if the sex is done in unsafe period. Since it is 10 days after you had sex you donot have options of taking emergency contraception now. If your female partner misses her scheduled period, get a urine pregnancy test done at home. If it's positive consult a gynecologist urgently to suggest appropriate method to terminate pregnancy, if she consents. If she gets her periods, pregnancy is ruled out.

Sleep Deprivation - 7 Negative Effects Of Sex Life

Sexologist, Gurgaon
Sleep Deprivation - 7 Negative Effects Of Sex Life

Many men claim to get by on 4-5 hours of sleep a day but robbing the body of its required sleep has a number of side effects. The human body requires a minimum of 8 hours of sleep a day. There are two main reasons men don't get enough sleep: intentionally staying awake late at night and sleep disorders such as insomnia, sleep apnea etc. Here's how depriving your body of sleep can harm your sexual health.
Less testosterone
The male body produces testosterone while he sleeps. When the body does not get adequate sleep and rest, it produces less testosterone. As the insomnia continues, this situation worsens. This leads to a low sex drive and poor libido.
Low self esteem
Testosterone also influences the way the body stores fat and hence less testosterone can also lead to gynecomastia. This is condition where male bodies develop breasts as a result of an increase in body fat. Lowered testosterone levels in a male body also lead to reduced muscle strength and hence an overall lower sense of well being.
Erectile dysfunction
Inadequate sleep can result in obstructive sleep apnea. This is linked to the lowered levels of testosterone in the body as patients with sleep apnea do not reach the stage of REM sleep when testosterone is produced. Thus, sleep apnea can lead to erectile dysfunction where a man is unable to get or maintain an erection while having sex.
Low sperm count
Testosterone plays an important role in sperm production. The relation between the two is simple: the higher the testosterone levels; the more the body produces sperm. Thus if you do not get adequate sleep, your sperm count can be affected leading to infertility.
Sexual misunderstanding
Sleep deprivation can affect your decision making and understanding of the other person's intentions. Thus if you haven't slept properly, you are more likely to make uncalled for sexual advances and misunderstand your partner's sexual expectations.
Accelerates aging
The body sheds dead cells and grows new cells while it sleeps. Thus if the body is deprived of adequate sleep, the gaining process is accelerated. Not only does this bring on an early onset of wrinkles but it also lowers your sexual drive. Lowered testosterone may also lead to early balding.
If the body doesn't get its required rest, you start the day feeling tired instead of refreshed. As the day goes on, this tiredness increases and is accompanied by irritability and aggression. When you're in such a bad moon and constantly tired the chances of wanting to be physically intimate with another person decrease. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Sexologist.

Common Cause of Infertility in Females

Common Cause of Infertility in Females

Common Cause of Infertility in Females

Damage to fallopian tubes (tubal infertility)

When fallopian tubes become damaged or blocked, they keep sperm from getting to the egg or block the passage of the fertilized egg into the uterus. Causes of fallopian tube damage or blockage can include:

  • Pelvic inflammatory disease, an infection of the uterus and fallopian tubes due to chlamydia, gonorrhea or other sexually transmitted infections

  • Previous surgery in the abdomen or pelvis, including surgery for ectopic pregnancy, in which a fertilized egg becomes implanted and starts to develop in a fallopian tube instead of the uterus

  • Pelvic tuberculosis, a major cause of tubal infertility worldwide, although uncommon in the United States


Endometriosis occurs when tissue that normally grows in the uterus implants and grows in other locations. This extra tissue growth — and the surgical removal of it — can cause scarring, which may obstruct the tube and keep the egg and sperm from uniting. It can also affect the lining of the uterus, disrupting implantation of the fertilized egg. The condition also seems to affect fertility in less-direct ways, such as damage to the sperm or egg.

Uterine or cervical causes

Several uterine or cervical causes can impact fertility by interfering with implantation or increasing the likelihood of a miscarriage.

  • Benign polyps or tumors (fibroids or myomas) are common in the uterus, and some types can impair fertility by blocking the fallopian tubes or by disrupting implantation. However, many women who have fibroids or polyps can become pregnant.

  • Endometriosis scarring or inflammation within the uterus can disrupt implantation.

  • Uterine abnormalities present from birth, such as an abnormally shaped uterus, can cause problems becoming or remaining pregnant.
    Cervical stenosis, a cervical narrowing, can be caused by an inherited malformation or damage to the cervix.

  • Sometimes the cervix can’t produce the best type of mucus to allow the sperm to travel through the cervix into the uterus.
    Unexplained infertility

  • In some instances, a cause for infertility is never found. It’s possible that a combination of several minor factors in both partners underlie these unexplained fertility problems. Although it’s frustrating to not get a specific answer, this problem may correct itself with time.

I am in relationship with a girl and we both want to make love. She is virgin. Whenever I tried to put my penis inside her vagina she has allot of pain .she want to be physical vth me but due to her pain I am unable to penetrate her. She takes too much time to get wet. What should I do?

Has to widen her space by other means like finguring or like that. Don't intercourse before she is ready fr it. Concentrate more on foreplay soo that her vagina become wetty. Soo that intercourse become easier.

lybrate-user, before advising you, wanted to ask if you got an ultrasound done, to rule out for ectopic pregnancy ,but since you already have initiated the process, you may take two misoprostol pills at 11 pm in night and observe for what you pass out, and again the remaining two tabs after 24 hrs only if required.

Sir my wife period's come and 2nd day stop so what problem with him. And I am doing oral sex so that this is create problem in periods pls answer me.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Cunnilingus or oral sex is safe kind of sex as compared to vaginal or anal sex. Chlamydia, human papillomavirus (hpv), gonorrhea, herpes, hepatitis (multiple strains), and other sexually transmitted infections (stis/stds), can be transmitted through oral sex if the partner is infected with any one of these. But carrying these kind of diseases in a known partner is extremely rare. Risk of sti infection, however, is generally considered significantly lower for oral sex than for vaginal or anal sex, with hiv transmission considered the lowest risk with regard to oral sex. Also it does not change the menses pattern. Hormonal changes can cause this.

Is sanitary pads can be used after its expiry date or on some sanitary pads no expiry date is mentioned. So let me clear this.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Sanitary pads are not supposed to be sterile like medical syringes etc, so if they have crossed the expiry date, they could be used. But as a precaution, why not use a fresh pack? or one withing the expiry period. You may call the company's help line to know more of the pads in question. Home made pads can also be used if money is the concern about using pads beyond their expiry date.

Hi lybrate-user get a pregnancy test done first to know if you are pregnant or not. If you are pregnant get a scan done then. If after 1 kit also you did not abort then either you are not pregnant or chances of ectopic are there.

Homeopath, Hubli-Dharwad
When ever you miss your periods rule out pregnancy. If it's negative then ok if positive need to take care. And try to have sex during. 12-16 days of your periods if you are planning for pregnancy.
