My wife doesn't show any interest in sex. We have been married for 2 years and recently we are blessed with a boy 8 months old. I am getting mentally depressed we also fight often for her lack of interest in sex she doesn't give importance to my feelings always finding some reason to avoid me. I am too much depressed because of this behaviour of her.

dear first make it clear that, Although this seems like a lot to remember, it will be worth it for you. Your pleasure is directly connected to how she feels. And trust me, if you’re not giving it to her how she likes it, she’s not going to want to give it to you at all. couples who believe the sole reason for thrusting is to achieve orgasm often end up suffering from mechanical sex that is devoid of any emotional depth and lasting enjoyment. Women's bodies are fun to explore. Experiment and try things as she allows. She'll thank you later.

If this pill is taken within 72 hours of unprotected intercourse then no chances of pregnancy but sometimes excessive bleeding problems occur at time of periods due to remains of the dead embryo.So avoid such pills as much as you can as it is the female who is in loss situation every time.

No certainly not. But there is a small risk of paving the way for developing abdominal hernia, uterine decent. But this is possible for sudden un accustomed and continued stress in aged above 40 leading a sedentary life style with much of tummy developed already. They too can avoid this by toning their abdominal muscles first, then go to weight lifting. Thanks,

Contraception - Myths and Misconceptions

MBBS (Gold Medalist, Hons), MS (Obst and Gynae- Gold Medalist), DNB (Obst and Gynae), Fellow- Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility (ACOG, USA), FIAOG
Gynaecologist, Kolkata
Today 26th september is the world contraceptive day. Sex is a basic human right. But to have sex safely and without fear of unwanted pregnancy should be the priority. Many women across the world die everyday as a result of unwanted pregnancy, mostly due to unsafe abortion.

So, couples can avoid pregnancy and enjoy sex life fully, only if they can follow safe and effective contraceptive advice. Let me clarify some popular myths and misconceptions abut contraception.

1. one contraception is useful for all

While the ideal contraceptive is necessary but it does not exist. So, what may seem suitable for a couple may not be useful for another couple. We need to assess various points like number of children they have, wish to have further children and plan to have children, general health of wife and husband (and any diseases they suffer from), frequency of intercourse, chance of infection, age of the partners etc.

2. Regarding barrier methods
Most popular barrier method is male condom. But the myths are that" condoms reduce sexual pleasure" and" condoms get easily damaged leading to failure.

Condoms are specially useful for those who are at risk of infections, who do not have very frequent intercourse and who are not suitable for other methods. Condoms do not decrease sexual pleasure, some of the condoms have medicated products which can increase the duration of intercourse and also act as lubricant to facilitate intimacy.

But men should know how to use it properly. It should be worn in erect penis expelling all the air and projecting the tip beyond the tip of penis. While withdrawing penis after intercourse, the condom should be held at the base of the penis. Actually failure/ rupture of condoms occur because of mishandling of condom or not knowing proper use of it. So, before use, please make sure that you know its correct use.

Definitely some men can feel latex allergy and they have to use non-latex condom, which are widely available.

There are barrier methods for females also- like female condom, diaphragm and cervical cap etc. But they are not very ease to use and are not so popular.

3. Oral contraceptive pills (ocp)

Myths-" ocp causes increase in weight" ocp causes cancers.

Facts- ocp seldom causes gain in weight. The gain in weight is coincidental, that means you have some other reason of gaining weight- like not having exercise, ignoring diet control and some other diseases.

Ocp rather reduces risk of cancer- especially ovarian cancer (which is very difficult to diagnose and very lethal), cancer of colon, cancer of endometrium (inner lining of uterus). Of course, there is little risk of breast cancer, but the risk is not very high, it can be easily detected by examination by doctor. So, if you take ocp, get rid of all the fears. Just try to have self- breast examination every month.

4. Intrauterine contraceptive devices (iucd)-

Most popular is copper t. Medicated iucds are also available, that contains hormonal drugs.

Copper t does not increase risk of infection, a common misconception lies among woman.

5. Emergency contraceptive pills (i pill etc).

Often couple uses these pills regularly after intercourse. Remember these pills contain very high content of hormonal drugs, which can lead to serious side effects like hormonal imbalance, irregularities in periods (and thus can prevent you from getting pregnant in future, even when you want pregnancy), ectopic pregnancy (pregnancy outside tubes that are life-threatening) etc. So, use regular contraception if you want to prevent pregnancy. I pill is not meant to be taken for every time of sex.

6. Ligation-

Ligation of male (vasectomy) and female (tubectomy) is done as permanent contraception for couples having more than 2 children. Ligation in male does not disturb sexual activity. It is easier than female ligation. Again, female ligation is also a very safe technique.

So, please remove all misconceptions and myths about contraception. Have safe sex, enjoy life.

A constant weight during pregnancy may be an issue or not depending upon your period of gestation. It's ok to gain no or little weight in the 1st trimester. But if it is so in the 2nd half of pregnancy, it may be a sign of fetal growth restriction which needs to be further evaluated. Have a balanced diet rich in proteins, minerals and vitamins. With calcium n iron supplements, take protein powder with milk twice a day specially available for pregnancy.

There are multiple reasons for delay in periods but for a sexually active female, pregnancy as a case should be ruled out first. Even if you did I use condom it offers more than 80% protection from pregnancy, but not 100%. So it would be advisable that you ask her to rule out pregnancy using urine pregnancy test. If it's positive, it is likely that she is pregnant. Even if negative she should consult gynecologist for necessary treatment as periods are delayed by more than 10 days by now.

Condoms have more failure rate. Also you will have to stay dependent on your partner's decision. If you want a method which you yourself can handle, and with much more efficacy then try oral pills, the specific one that suit you.

The best method to find out the day of ovulation is temperature method. In this technique, womens body temperature is recorded every morning. When these temperatures are plotted on a graph we get a curve. The temperature is low during actual bleeding. Subsequently it rises. At about the middle of cycle there is a sudden fall in temperature followed by a rise. This rise in temperature indicates that ovulation has occurred. You can msg me to discuss in detail to know the exact day of your ovulation. I will help you.
