Learn the Signs and Symptoms of STDs

Graduate in Ayurvedic Medicine and Surgery ( GAMS )
Sexologist, Delhi
Learn the Signs and Symptoms of STDs

With changing times the nature and effects of virus and bacteria are also changing and due to this, one of the biggest risks of unprotected sex is catching a sexually transmitted disease or STD. An STD can be contacted by any form of intercourse including oral, vaginal and anal sex.

STDs are serious diseases that should not be ignored and require treatment and medication. Some common STDs are:

  1. Chlamydia
  2. Hepatitis B
  3. Genital Herpes
  4. Syphilis and
  5. Gonorrhea 

The only way to protect yourself from an STD is to abstain from unprotected sex and always use a condom. Sometimes STD infections have no symptoms and can remain dormant for years, hence it is essential to get yourself regularly treated for STDs if you have more than one sexual partner.

On the other hand some STDs have visible symptoms such as:

  1. Skin rash: A rash in the genital area is most often a sign of STDs. This can be in the form of bumps, sores or warts. It may or may not be accompanied by itchiness. A rash caused by a STD usually results in redness and inflammation. Herpes sores may subside within a week or so but just because the rash is gone does not mean the infection has been treated. Hence even if the rash disappears before your doctor's visit, ensure you mention it. 
  2. Painful urination: A burning sensation or pain while urinating is a symptom for a number of STDs. There may also be a change in the colour of urine. Some STDs associated with painful urination as Chlamydia, gonorrhea and trichomoniasis. However, this may also be triggered by kidney stones or a urinary tract infection. 
  3. Painful intercourse: Pain during intercourse is one of the most overlooked symptoms of a sexually transmitted disease. While a little pain may be normal, any sudden increase in pain or new type of pain should not be ignored. This should be kept in mind especially when having intercourse with a new partner or if there is a change in sexual habits. When it comes to men's sexual health, pain at the time of ejaculation can be a symptom of a STD.
  4. Abnormal discharge: Abnormal discharge from the vagina or penis can be a symptom of a number of infections not all of which are STDs. Strangely coloured and odorous vaginal discharge can be a symptom of yeast infections or a Sexually transmitted disease like trichomoniasis or gonorrhea. Bleeding in between periods can also be a symptom of a STD.  Abnormal discharge from the penis can be a sign of Chlamydia, gonorrhea or trichomoniasis.

Losing weight suddenly will only cause increase in weight later. You have to make effort to lose wt gradually over a period of time. This reduction will be more permanent. *Take protein rich food --- seeds, pulses, nuts, Also fruits, vegetables, greens and reduce cereals. *Green tea is also good. *Take lemon juice and honey in warm water in the early morning, empty stomach. *Avoid sweets, fried foods, processed food and junk food. A * Maintain food timings * Don’t miss breakfast. *Avoid heavy dinners and late night meals. *Avoid stimulants, aerated drinks sweetish juices, etc. And maintain good food habits. * Drink lots of water and keep hydrated. Avoid sugary soft drinks * Have adequate, timely, good night sleep *Have vigorous physical exercise to improve absorption and blood circulation. Games like basketball, volley ball and stretch exercises like pull ups, cycling will be helpful.

If you need to use vaseline during sex, and you are trying to conceive, then be aware that vaseline is spermicidal and hence acts as a obstacle to conceive. Most lubricants are spermicidal and hence the nest would be to try and get as much natural lubrication as is possible. Before penetration, during foreplay please get famililiar with the private parts of the female. At the topmost part of the external vulva, is a fold of skin between which is enclosed a small bead like organ called clitoris. If the clitoris is massaged it will result in engorgement of the erectile tissue in the female and hence in preparation good lubrication will be thrown by the accessory glands. This will solve most of the problems as natural lubricant is very sperm friendly. During sex if you have routine man on top position it prevents the clitoris from being stimulated. Lubrication is a sign of arousal. If the woman is aroused her vagina gets lubricated, in preparation for the coitus naturally by the secretions of the accessory sex glands I would suggest you bring your partner at the edge of the bed, ask her to hold her legs apart and you can stand by the bed, between the legs and enter the vagina this way. In this position the visual stimulus to your erection and also your hands are free to stimulate the clitoris to get her aroused and hence more lubricated.

What is period time?

BHMS
Homeopath,
What is period time?
Hello, Menstruation is what most people call having your period. During menstruation, the lining of the uterus flows out through your vagina. Menstruation usually happens each month, and lasts from 3 to 7 days. Most young women have their first menstruation when they're between 9 and 16 years old. The menstrual cycle is the time from the first day of one period to the first day of the next. A normal menstrual cycle can be as short as 21 days or longer than 35 days. For most women, the menstrual cycle lasts 25-30 days. But it's not unusual for the number of days in each cycle to vary from month to month.

Diabetes- Everyone should know about (Dos And Don'ts)

MD - Homeopathy
Homeopath, Vadodara
Diabetes- Everyone should know about (Dos And Don'ts)

While india is racing towards the no 1 country having the most number of diabetic patients, though the knowledge regarding the general guidelines about diabetes care, or dos and dont's to follow is lacking on a very large scale patients and that includes the most literate persons also.

There are a few things that matters the most which are as follows:

1) diet: most patients are in knowledge that the diet should be restricted in sweets. But rarely anybody knows that only restriction of food that taste sweet will not do the needed.

The food high in carbohydrates also must be included in the list as carbohydrates are the first line source of the body's energy store to convert them in to sugar.

E. G. Rice, potatos, bananas, or over ripen fruits.

And advice is to take them in minimum quantity instead of completely banning them.

Again how to eat? the advise is to divide your large meals in to smaller meals at the interval of 3-4 hours. Avoid eating too much at a time. Diabetes patients also should not indulge in fasting too much.

2) exercise: now many knows that diabetes is having two types: insulin dependent and insulin independent.

In the first type there is actual lack of effective circulating insulin, while the second types does have most of the time considerable amount of insulin to be used but the effectiveness is reduced. Because of the increased amount of fat deposition around cells. In that case doing prescribed exercise will not only help build the general health but by reducing the fat layer around the cells it helps the insulin to reach its effector cells and do its functions normally. Thats why exercise is one of the crucial key points in the diabetic regime.

3) regular investigation: this a very major dilema in many patients that I have observed throughout my practice. Many of the patients don't go for investigation in the fear that what if the blood sugar level comes abnormal. At that point I could remember a saying" if a cat drinks milk with the eyes closed, it doesn't mean that world does not see it.

If its already abnormal then by going for the investigation will make you aware and you can take proper preventive steps to by pass any complications that might have fall upon you.

So advise isto go for the regular blood sugar checkup at least once every two months for those whose levels remains under the normal range and often if it is uncontrolled.

And one should also think of investigated for hba1c every 3-4 months as it will give general idea of the glycemic control.

4) general prevention of complication and specific cares:

By following the above mentioned points you could easily prevent the major complications. But there are also some specific cares you should not ingnore:

Like get examined for any underlying heart condition, or opthalmic conditions, or the like, or kidney problems, or neurological involvement.

Out of these one that I care the most and patients ingnore the most is foot care: 

Why is this important: as our feet not being a vital organ we usually ignore but it can be a reason for a very major complication and even can be fatal.

How?

Because of diabetes there are very chances that any injury will not heal at a normal pace and if not taken a due care then it can turn into gangrene. Which we all know that leads to amputation and life long being a handicap. 

Because of poor supply and other vascular degeneration it can cause deep vein thrombosis means the veins in you leg gets obstructed by clotts and if such clott dislodges from there and gets in to the circulation then whenever it gets deposited it causes a grave complication like myocardial infarction (heart attack), stroke (paralysis), or other organs can also get affected.

These were some important topics that I thought the general population should know so that they can educate themselves and minimize their emergency visits to the doctors.

Being a homeopath I cannot restrain myself to propogate homeopathy because it is as a true notion that a harmless and gentle treatment, less costly than any other mode of treatment (directly or indirectly), very easy to follow (just few white sugar pills and drops of medicines), prevents the above mentioned complications, and not only that also improves the general health.

There are some homeopathic medicines well proved to be very effective and unquestionable positive effects:

E. G:- syzigium jambolanum, cephalendra, abroma augusta, uranium nitricum, phosphoric acid etc.

Note: above mentioned medicines are very useful and anybody can try but the advise is to consult the specialist as the doses and the repititions needs to be regulated case specifically.

Weight loss and fat loss are not the same. Weight is your whole body weight which is muscle, organs, bones, water. Whereas fat weight is just the fat. You have to concentrate on fats only. There can be many conditions why your weight is not decreasing 1) you may have some hormonal issues. 2) you have developed muscles, which is extremely good. Muscles give you strength and shape to your body. It is most metabolically active tissue of your body. 3) there can be a lot of water retention in the body. It is extremely good that you are already exercising. But you need to follow a good nutrition program as that will help you to lose fat from the body. Your diet must include whole food like vegetables, fruits, whole grains like roti, brown rice, or sheddo chaal which bengalis eat, whole dais like moong, rajma, bengal gram and eggs, fish and chicken in the right proportion. Drink lots of water. Avoid sugars and sweets. You have to see that your body loses inches. Do not bother about the weight.
