Health Benefits of Sex

BHMS
Homeopath, Raebareli
Health Benefits of Sex

1. It keeps your immune system at great -- sexually active people take fewer sick days. People who have sex have higher levels of what defends your body against germs, viruses, and other intruders. Studies found that college students who had sex once or twice a week had higher levels of certain antibody compared to students who had sex less often.

You should still do all the other things that make your immune system happy, such as:

Eat right- balance diet.

Stay active - do morning workouts.

Get enough sleep- at least 6-8 hours.

Always use a condom if you don't know both of your std statuses.

2. It boosts your libido -- having sex will make sex better and will improve your libido. For women, having sex ups vaginal lubrication, blood flow, and elasticity, she says, all of which make sex feel better and help you crave more of it.

3. It improves women's bladder control -- a strong pelvic floor is important for avoiding incontinence, something that will affect about 30% of women at some point in their lives.

Good sex is like a workout for your pelvic floor muscles. When you have an orgasm, it causes contractions in those muscles, which strengthens them.

4. Can be counted as an exercise -- sex is a really great form of exercise. It won't replace the treadmill, but it counts for something.

Sex uses about five calories per minute, four more calories than watching tv. It gives you a one-two punch: it bumps up your heart rate and uses various muscles.

So get busy! you may even want to clear your schedule to make time for it on a regular basis. Like with exercise, consistency helps maximize the benefits.

5. It lowers your blood pressure -- research suggests a link between sex and lower blood pressure. There have been many studies - one landmark study found that sexual intercourse specifically (not masturbation) lowered systolic blood pressure. That's the first number on your blood pressure test.

6. Can lower heart attack risk -- a good sex life is good for your heart. Besides being a great way to raise your heart rate, sex helps keep your estrogen and testosterone levels in balance. When either one of those is low you begin to get lots of problems, like osteoporosis and even heart disease.

Having sex more often may help. During one study, men who had sex at least twice a week were half as likely to die of heart disease as men who had sex rarely.

7. As a pain-reducer -- before you reach for an aspirin, try for an orgasm. Orgasm can block pain -- it releases a hormone that helps raise your pain threshold.

Stimulation without orgasm can also do the trick. It has been found that vaginal stimulation can block chronic back and leg pain, and many women have genital self-stimulation can reduce menstrual cramps, arthritic pain, and in some cases even headache.

8. Reduces the chances of prostate cancer -- men who ejaculated frequently (at least 21 times a month) were less likely to get prostate cancer. You don't need a partner to reap this benefit: sexual intercourse, nocturnal emission, and masturbation were all part of the equation.

However it is still not clear that sex was the only reason that mattered in this aspect. As lot of factors affect cancer risk. But more sex won't hurt it rather.

9. It improves sleep -- you may nod off more quickly after sex, and for good reason. After orgasm, the hormone prolactin is released, which is responsible for the feelings of relaxation and sleepiness.

10. Stress reliever -- being close to your partner can soothe stress and anxiety. Touching and hugging can release your body's natural feel-good hormone. sexual arousal releases a brain chemical that revs up your brain's pleasure and reward system.

Sex and intimacy can boost your self-esteem and happiness, too.

It's not only a prescription for a healthy life, but a happy one.

Hi, don't worry you wouldn't be pregnant as you took emergency contraceptive pills. Feeling unwell can be because of emergency pill, it sometimes causes. Do consult a gynaecologist, in case the symptoms get worse.

This World AIDS Day - Let's Spread the Awareness About HIV/AIDS

This World AIDS Day - Let's Spread the Awareness About HIV/AIDS

What is Monogamous Relationship?

You (who have been tested for STD/STIs and don't have any) are having sex with only one partner (who also has been tested for STD/STIs and doesn't have any) who only has sex with you. And you both keep it that way! 

Stated another way, you are both STD/STI free and only have sex with each other. People of any sexual orientation can engage in monogamous relationships. The only thing implied by the term monogamy is that the relationship consists of two people who are romantically and/or sexually exclusive. Theoretically, outside of abstinence, this is really the safest type of "safer sex" that you can have. 

Celebrated on 1st December of each year, World AIDS Day, aims to spread awareness about HIV / AIDs. It is an STD wherein, HIV stands for human immunodeficiency infection and AIDS stands for acquired immune deficiency syndrome. The disease hinders the immune system in keeping up our body’s security against sickness. HIV causes individuals to end up wiped out with infections that regularly would not affect them and HIV leads to AIDS.

Understanding the Symptoms:

HIV has few or no signs or symptoms for up to ten years or more before side effects of AIDS tends to manifest. There is no cure for HIV/AIDS, yet treatment is accessible. A few people have HIV symptoms not long after being infected. These include:

  1. There are a few phases of HIV illness. The primary HIV side effects may include swollen glands in the throat, armpit, or crotch.
  2. Other early HIV symptoms incorporate slight fever, headaches, exhaustion, and muscle throbs.
  3. These symptoms may keep on going for just a couple of weeks. At that point, there are typically no HIV indications for a long time. That is the reason it can be difficult to know whether or not a person is suffering from HIV.

The symptoms of AIDS show up in the most advanced phase of the HIV disease. These are as follows:

  1. Along with a severely damaged immune system, a person with AIDS may likewise have thrush. A thrush is a thick, whitish covering on the tongue that is brought about by a yeast infection and now and then joined by a sore throat.
  2. Serious or repetitive vaginal yeast infection.
  3. Pelvic inflammatory illness.
  4. Serious and frequent infections.
  5. Unexplained fatigue that might be followed by headaches, dizziness.
  6. Loss of more than ten pounds of weight that is not because of physical exercise or consuming fewer calories.

Risk Factors: There are a lot of ways in which you can get the infection. HIV is transmitted through blood, semen, vaginal fluids and breast milk. The most well-known ways in which HIV is spread, are:

  1. Having sexual intercourse without a condom with somebody who has HIV/AIDS.
  2. Using needles or syringes that have been used by someone who has HIV/AIDS.
  3. Being punctured with a needle or surgical instrument that has been contaminated with HIV.
  4. Getting HIV blood, semen or vaginal discharge into open injuries or wounds.
  5. Babies born to women with HIV/AIDS can get HIV from their mothers during birth or from breastfeeding.

There are numerous ways in which you can protect yourself from HIV. These are as follows:

  1. The most secure way is to limit the number of sexual partners you take on.
  2. Try to have safer sex and always use protection.
  3. Get your partners tested for HIV.
  4. HIV tests are a typical piece of social insurance.

In case that you think you may have been infected by HIV, talk to a specialist or a doctor about testing. Discussing what risks you might have taken can help you choose whether testing is ideal for you. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

This weight gain is due to hormonal insufficiency. You need ayurvedic tablets to restore the balance of hormones. The good news is that we have ayurvedic tablets to restore the balance of hormones. Once this balance is established, weight loss happens simultaneously. Kindly let me know your height and weight so as to arrive at perfect prescription.

Am 26 weeks of pregnant, I was 65kg when I conceive baby, now am 83KG I have put up about 20kg, which is very abnormal. Am not having sugar, BP or thyroid. However I was a fat from my childhood, I have reduced my weight being in diet and exercise. Now am not able to do diet or exercise my body is not co-operating. Am so worried about my weight and feeling stressed, how can I overcome this. Will I loose my weight after my delivery. Or what can I do for this, please help

PGDD, RD, Bachelor of Home Science

Hye. This is not the time now to think about weight loss. Usually dieting for most people means crashing your food intake. This may have shown loss on the weighing scale but at the cost of losing out on muscle mass and nutrients. Now that you are back on your routine diet the body is taking up whatever it's getting. Try to now concentrate on eating right. Do not try to avoid certain foods so you don't gain weight. You weight is essential for the growth of your baby and both your immunity. Just try to enjoy your pregnancy. This time won't come back again. Also, if you follow a healthy lifestyle, good nutritious diet and stay active after delivery, you should definitely lose the pregnancy fat. So, enjoy the pregnancy and all the best health to you.

I am 30 years old. I am having a baby of age 2 months old. I am breastfeeding her. But I am having a doubt that is my milk enough for my baby. How can I know that my milk is enough for my baby. Please suggest me the foods to be taken by me to increase breast milk.

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS, FISPN & FISPN - Pediatric Nephrology
Pediatrician, Delhi
This is the common concern all the first time mothers will have, and its really simple to understand. You should look for the following signs for the adequacy of breast milk: 1. You will feel lightness in your breast after feeding. 2. Baby is passing urine every 4 hours atleast. 3. Baby is gaining weight. Thats it. To increase breast milk only one thing helps at that is confidence in yourself. Have confidence that you gonna feed your baby. Be relaxed anxiety is the major cause of decrease in breast milk supply. So sit back and relax. All other things can weight but your baby can`t so for the first 6 months of life your baby is your priority. Just take one extra meal a day for baby nothing else is required and always eat what you like to eat not what other say.

There's this white fluid that keeps coming from my private parts, and I would like to know why. I'm a teenage girl and a virgin, and the substance is white and similar in consistency to snot, but not always as thick. What can I do to prevent this?

B.H.M.S., Senior Homeopath Consultant
Homeopath, Delhi
Leucorrhoea, also known as vaginal discharge is a very common condition that has been experienced by most women of all ages, at some time or the other. This is because of the fact that the female genitals are highly prone to infections because they are moist and covered at most times. Moreover, women do tend to sweat a lot in that area, which increases the chances of infections and inflammation. Unfortunately, most women are highly embarrassed by this problem, as it is usually characterized by a foul smelling vaginal discharge that is white in color. Women are not only embarrassed in front of others because of this, but most of them also avoid discussing the problem with their medical health care providers, which is why the treatment for vaginal discharge caused by leucorrhea could be a bit of a challenge.
