My pregnancy test is negative I'm still waiting for the periods till date I completed 46 days. Am I pregnant or not?

My pregnancy test is negative I'm still waiting for the periods till date I completed 46 days. Am I pregnant or not?
If the pregnancy test was done quite some time back you should repeat once and once negative you definitely are nonpregnant and can take medicine for withdrawl bleeding. At times if the menstrual cycle is irregular a delayed ovulation may occur. In that case the pregnancy test which was initially negative can come positive few days later. Thus the repeat pregnancy test precaution.

Does Watching Porn Together Really Help You Have a Better Sex Life?

MD - General Medicine
Sexologist, Nashik
Does Watching Porn Together Really Help You Have a Better Sex Life?
Does watching porn together help you have a better sex life?

It is often said that the couples who do most day-to-day activities together are more committed towards each other. But does the same stand true when it comes to watching sexual content or pornography? Well, research certainly seems to indicate that, with a whopping 96% couples watch pornography together. Here are some pros and cons of viewing porn with your partner.

PROs-

1. It may help you both in discovering your sexual preferences
It is important for both you and your partner to be on the same page when it comes to discovering your sexuality and figuring out each other’s sexual preferences. Just like adolescent sex education, pornography too educates you about the mechanics of sexual play. It is a useful tool that brings out the kinky side in you and makes you more open to discussions on things that pique your curiosity in the bedroom. As and when you see such visual imagery, it may appeal to you enough to try it out with your partner. Discuss such desires with your partner. This may help you in discovering what really turns you and your partner on.

2. It may help you in maintaining sexual fidelity in your relationship
Watching porn together with your partner can potentially increase the intensity of physical attraction between the two of you.This, as a result, leads to greater gratification for both of you, and if you are sexually satisfied by your partner, you are less likely to look for pleasure outside your relationship. Also, it is way healthier to indulge in it as a team rather than discovering your partner watching porn alone.

3. It may help both of you to pick up newer positions
Porn has the ability to expose you to new and exciting positions you never knew. About 58% of couples who viewed pornography claimed that the shared activity had a positive effect on their sex lives. New moves and unique positions are known to spice up sex lives. Men can surprise their women (or vice versa) with an exotic move or two. Porn may also help in decreasing shyness and in opening up your minds so that you can pick up and practice new moves.

CONs-

Although porn viewing may consist of potential benefits, it may also affect your relationship adversely. When watched in excess, porn may cause certain problems in your relationship, which are-

1. It might set up wrong expectations in reality
Porn movies give you a warped view of what beauty is. It may cause you to have unrealistically higher expectations from your partner, whereas the reality may not match your imaginative hopes and standards. As a result, it may also lead to frustration, aggression and infidelity.

2. It may lead to pornography addiction
The visual and physical appeal of porn may impact a person’s mental or social well-being. Increased porn viewing may hint at a person’s social isolation, loss of interest in career and other activities etc. It may also make you highly dependent on it, as it allows immediate sexual gratification. As a result the usage may go out of control and relate directly to compulsive behaviour.

3. It may affect your sexual drive and libido
Making love to your partner in real-life may become a foreign concept, as porn can decrease your physical drive with the possibility of making you sexually lazy. Porn may also have certain side effects including probable loss of libido and even difficulty in lasting longer. It may also make regular intercourse seem boring as it may not have the same sensual and visual appeal as pornography.
After realising its various pros and cons if you want to use porn, it is advisable to not use it as replacement but as an accessory for better sexual well-being.

Due to weak muscle (lack of calcium) or hormonal imbalance painful menses occur. Increase calcium in diet, do regular exercises and consult me for hormonal regulation or better health. Without consultation -viburnum or cimicifuga medicine may help.

Daer lybrate-user, pms is a great problem to many girls seen before and after marriage. Irregular of period depends upon you body and mind status. Due to malnutrtion and anemia it happens as well as failure of uteri ovarian cycle. Try to take balanced food with uterine tonic. Your hormonal cycle related to ovary and uterus will lead you from irregular to regular. Be healthy. Ok.

Take some precautions during intercourse, Avoid pressure on your lower abdomen, Spooning position during intercourse is preferred during pregnancy. Also mild intensity women on top position can be found a bit safe. Try your best to avoid or minimize sexual activity during pregnancy. You should also consult gynaecologist for your condition of uterus and baby growing inside.

Pregnant? Diet Regimen You Must Follow!

Phd - Complementary & Alternative Medicine

Pregnant? Diet Regimen You Must Follow!

It is important to have a healthy diet and proper nutrition for women while pregnant in order to keep themselves and their unborn baby healthy. Prenatal nutrition focuses upon the nutrition of the mother before and during pregnancy. It affects the birth weight and development of the infants. The foods that pregnant women need during their pregnancy for themselves and their child’s health are as follows

  1. They should have oranges and its juice as much as possible. It is rich in Vitamin C and folic acid. It also contains potassium which lowers one’s blood pressure, which might be one of the key concerns during pregnancy. Foods containing folic acid should be taken right before conception and in the early weeks of pregnancy to avoid the birth defects of the baby in its brain and spinal cord. Other sources of folic acid include green leafy vegetables, beans, peanuts, asparagus, peas and other enriched grain products.
  2. Having yogurt helps pregnant women. It contains protein and more calcium than milk. It also serves to reduce the risk of having yeast infections.
  3. Broccoli is also a good source of calcium (for healthy bone) and is rich in vitamin C, foliate and Vitamin B6.
  4. Beans and lentils are rich in iron (for healthy blood) and proteins are highly needed for the health of both the pregnant woman and her off-spring.
  5. Figs, whether fresh or dried up, contains more fiber than other vegetables along with plenty of potassium, calcium and iron.
  6. A healthy diet plan for a pregnant for the well-being of both herself and her unborn baby per day is as follows-
    • 6 to 11 servings of grains.
    • 3 to 5 servings of diet rich in vegetables.
    • 2 to 4 servings of diet with fruits.
    • 4 to 6 servings of diet containing milk.
    • 3 to 4 servings of meat and foods containing proteins.
    • 6 to 8 glasses of water, fruit juice and milk.
    • Limiting the consumption of fatty foods and sweets. 

      If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dietitian-nutritionist.

Hi, my wife is 34 years old after miscarriage at 5 months (first child), she has put on little weight but her tummy/stomach portion has come out a lot. Second thing after delivery there is severe pain.

DGO, MD, MRCOG, CCST, Accredation in Colposcopy

I would suggest she takes up a strict regime of diet and exercise. To avoid high calorie foods and instead take fruits, vegetables and proteins like fish, chicken, dal. Exercise like jogging/ walking/swimming/skipping. Also I would advice she gets a USG pelvis done to exclude any pathology. In the event she has any abnormal vaginal discharge she needs to consult a doctor for antibiotics.

Hi Asiya, you need to first know cause of the ectopic pregnancy and treat it before planning for baby. As once their is ectopic it increases risk of recurrence to 10% in subsequent pregnancies. We will evaluate the causes and chances to reduce recurrence and plan for treatment further.

Ten years of marriage and one miscarriage. You must have a large of file or reports and investigations to look into. Where are you from? Have you not consulted a good gynecologist? Don't look for miracle cures on net for a problem like this. Get in consultation with a good doctor before it is too late. Vaginal infections have nothing to do with infertility. Take care.
