It is a quite common isssue in 70% of males. Dont worry much. You have to do more foreplay with your partner, so that you both will reach climax at same time, by that time your excitement will decrease little then you have to spend more time in to and fro motion, to relaese of sperm. Also dont be panic, the more you remember about your past failure / disappointments, the more will be your present sexual enjoyement will be missing. So forget about prvious failures while doing sex today. Also when you insert in vagina, your semen may fall with in 2 min some times. This quite common. You dont worry, every male has thesame problem and females are not much worried about this any time, always they need a foreplay much and hugs even after sex. So remember all this, reduce your anxiety and enjoy. Gud luck.

Could you please suggest a medicine to overcome the problem in falling asleep and improving the quality of sleep during night, which may work instantly.

Hi, Sleep plays a vital role in good health and well-being throughout your life. Getting enough quality sleep at the right times can help protect your mental health, physical health, quality of life, and safety. In children and teens, sleep also helps support growth and development. The damage from sleep deficiency can occur in an instant (such as a car crash), or it can harm you over time. For example, ongoing sleep deficiency can raise your risk for some chronic health problems. It also can affect how well you think, react, work, learn, and get along with others. Management: Here are five tips everyone can use to help improve the quality of their sleep: Keep your bedroom cool and dark Put away/turn off all electronic devices while preparing for bedtime Stick to a regular bedtime and wake time every day, even on weekends Stop drinking caffeine by the early afternoon and avoid large late-night meals Skip the late-afternoon nap, as it can make it harder to sleep at bedtime Avoid taking unnecessary stress/ tension. Do regular exercise. Go for a brisk walk in the morning. Medication: Take Schwabe's Bacopa Monierri 1x/ thrice daily and Kali Phos./ once daily at night for 1month.

Homeopath,
What I should eat for long lasting in bed? Does sex and diet related to each other.
You can try a home therapy to boost your sexual performance. Soak 4-5 Dry Dates (KHURMA KHAJUR) in a cup of lukewarm milk & keep that mixture in refrigerator before going to bed daily. On waking up next morning eat those soaked Dry Dates & discard the milk. Repeat the process daily. This therapy often gives effective result within 15 days.

I don't understand why you should have this Colony count even after 2 months of treatment. Either the treat is not being taken fully or there is some other reason. This count means a full blown infection. Get a USG done of kidney and urinary bladder to rule out any other pathology and a blood sugar test done to rule out diabetes. Do not take it lightly. Take a lot of fluids orally and contact me.

Love Those Sweets Stashed in Your Fridge? 5 Reasons You Should Avoid Them

Certificate In Food / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Dehradun
Love Those Sweets Stashed in Your Fridge? 5 Reasons You Should Avoid Them

While fruits and vegetables may not always feel appetising, most people can’t keep away from sweets and desserts. Unfortunately, by doing this, we are harming ourselves. Processed sugars that go into making these desserts and sweets have a high calorific value and negligible amount of nutrients. For this reason, sugar is also known to have empty calories.

Here are a few more reasons you should stay away from sweets and start eating a healthier diet.

  1. It deposits fat cells in your liver: Processed sugar has a very high level of fructose in it. Unlike glucose, fructose, is not needed by the body. When we eat fructose, the body converts it into fat and deposits it in the liver. Over tie, these fat deposits can build up and trigger liver diseases.
  2. It makes the body resistant to insulin: Insulin is a hormone essential for the conversion of glucose into energy. However, eating excessive amounts of processed sugar can make the body resistant to insulin. This makes the pancreas produce excessive insulin, which further leads to elevated blood sugar levels. This can also trigger conditions like type II diabetes.
  3. It reduces immunity: Sugar causes inflammation, which reduces the efficacy of the immune system. It also raises blood pressure and keeps white blood cells from doing their job thus putting you at a higher risk of falling sick. By reducing your good cholesterol level, sugar also increases your risk of suffering from cardio vascular conditions such as heart attacks and strokes. Sugar has even been linked to Alzheimer’s disease.
  4. Sugar affects your sleep: Eating large amounts of sugar can cause stress and anxiety. It also keeps your body from relaxing and tenses the muscles. Thus, eating a sugary sack before going to bed can keep you tossing and turning and not allow you to have a good night’s sleep.
  5. Sugar causes weight gain: Weight loss is one of the most visible effects of cutting down sugar. By making your body resistant to insulin energy gets stored as fat instead of being used up. Sugar also makes the body resistant to leptin which is responsible for telling the brain when we’ve had enough to eat. This makes us eat more and more even though the stomach is full.

Additionally, sugar triggers the release of dopamine and is addictive. When combined these factors make a person consume more than is needed and causes conditions, such as obesity.

Hello- You are absolutely fit and fine. It is obvious to have a doubt like that in the present scenario where every second person is addicted to sex and every third person is suffering from any kind of sexual weakness. Maintain your abstinence, it will reward in the form of ultimate sexual pleasure after your marital life. Good luck.

That is basic defect in diabetes. Usually when we eat, immediately insulin is released called first phase release. In diabetes, this release in response to food is delayed, that causes rise in sugar. That is why medicene is given 1/2 hr before breakfast.

What precautions should be taken while having sexual intercourse with a HIV infected partner?
If at you know the partner is HIV positive avoid. Use double condoms, do not kiss with mouth ulcers (tough to find if small ones r there), avoid kissing as suddenly if he/ she bites during the heat of the moment can have transmission chances. Also avoid open wound contact.
