Safe period is from day 1 to 7 and day 21 to the rest of the cycle, when you can have sex without worrying about getting pregnant. This period will not be the same for all women as it depends on the length of the menstrual cycle. If you had sex on 8th day of period you are safe and will not gt pregnant.

I and my wife is planning to have a baby now. After detecting ovulation by means of temperature chart and ovulation detector strips, we had unprotected sex for 4 days in a row starting from 12th August 2017. Samiksha usually gets her periods around 28 to 30 days. This time she missed her periods which were supposed to happen around 28th to 1st August 2017. We thought she conceived and hence did not get her regular periods. Tried checking with pregnancy detector strips but the test results were negative. And very unusually she got her periods started from yesterday, 6th September 2017. Now I am confused whether it was a delayed period or an early miscarriage. Can some one please explain me why this happened? What may be the reason? When should we try again to conceive? Any precautions or tips?

Hello visitor Thanks for your query. You are very sincerely taking measures to get your partner to be pregnant. You are to maintain as usual. Try to have your intercourse in right time as per the chart prepared by you. The attempts taken by you may be false. It is due to uterine problems. Take care of your uterine problems and apply some uterine boost drugs for better results. Feel free to contact me for better suggestions. I can help with property medicine support.

Homeopath, Chennai
Ganglion And Homeopathic Treatment!

Homeopathy can treat tumors (ganglion) with natural medicines only. The treatment can help you avoid the surgeon’s knife.

The remedies are prescribed after taking the complete details of the symptoms of disease and the patient which includes personal details, family details, and mental state of the patient thus knowing the complete personality of a patient.

There are 37 remedies which give great relief in ganglion or bible cyst. However, the correct choice and the resulting relief is a matter of experience and right judgement on the part of the homeopathy doctor. The treatment is decided after thorough case taking of the patient. Thus medicines are tailor made unlike allopathy in which all patients receive the same surgery or drugs although trade name may be different.
You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance.

Creation of vagina patients with MRKH syndrome. Please give me the full details about this problem. And what is the permanent solution to these problem?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, FCPS, DGO, Diploma of the Faculty of Family Planning (DFFP)
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
#28;MRKH (Mayer Rokitansky Küster Hauser) syndrome is a congenital (born with) abnormality, characterised by the absence of the vagina, cervix and the uterus (womb), which affects one in every 5,000 women. It is also associated with kidney, bone and hearing difficulties. The ovaries are usually present and function in the same way as any other woman’s by producing eggs and female hormones that keep you healthy. By surgery vagina can be created for sexual function but as there is no uterus no chance of pregnancy in her womb though her ovum with husband's sperm can be lodged in surrogate mother. In extremely few centres with low success uterus transplant has happened.

My partner's height is 6'2 and his fully erected penis is 8.6 inches. We have a huge height gap between us. Can a 4'11 short heighten woman fully take in a 8.6 penis inside her vagina? Won't sex be difficult due to our huge height gap? What are the best sex positions for a 4'11 short heighten woman with a 6'2 tall man? Please advice.

When it comes to sex, it's not uncommon for there to be a height difference between partners. But how do you have sex when one partner is substantially taller or shorter than the other? At five feet tall, I'm rather diminutive; all of my partners have been much, much taller than I am, which at times can present some unique challenges. I'm sure I'm not the only person in this metaphorical boat, though, so in the interest of bonding with everyone who's floating along here with me, here — let's talk about some tips that will make sex between people of dramatically different heights easier. To be honest, it's not actually that difficult to adapt your sexytime activities when one of you is really short or really tall; most of the best “tips” I've discovered are usually important for good sex in general, not just good sex between partners of different heights. That said, though, you do sometimes have to get a little creative. But hey, if variety is the spice of life? Well, let's just say that it'll definitely add that certain je ne sais quoi to sex. It's also worth noting before we begin that this isn't a hard and fast list of do's and do not's; they're suggestions only. Furthermore, since they're based on my own experiences, I can only speak to heterosexual pairings. Even taking those specifics into account, though, I'm pretty sure most of the tips mentioned here can be adapted across a wide spectrum of bedroom activities. They're open to interpretation; tweak them however you need to in order to suit your own situation. Or go ahead and disregard them altogether if none of them work for you. Totally your call. Bearing all that in mind, then, let's get started, shall we? Grab your bed wedge and let's get cracking! 1. Experiment. This is true of all sets of partners, but experimentation is really the best way to go about figuring out what works for you and what doesn't. It's also obviously going to vary from person to person; some things I personally find difficult — 69-type positions, for example (my torso is just too short to make them work) — might not give other shorties the same problems. Good sex is always about learning by doing, and it's doubly so here. 2. Communicate clearly and often. Again, clear communication is usually a hallmark of good sex in general; when you and your partner are of dramatically different sizes, though, it's even more important to make sure you're on your communication game. I often find that certain angles that might work for taller women hit me in extremely odd and uncomfortable places; as long as I'm upfront about it, though, my partners have always been happy to shift until we find something that works better. 3. Maintain a sense of humor. Awkward shit is going to happen. Someone will bonk their head on something unusual at some point. There's no need to get embarrassed or let it ruin the mood, though; being able to laugh about the goofy stuff is often the sexiest thing there is. 4. Invest in a wedge pillow. The Liberator Wedge is specifically designed to be used during sex; you can also get a plain ol' bed wedge pillow, though, which tends to be a heck of a lot cheaper (just make sure it's a firm one!). The end effect of both is the same: It helps make positions that might otherwise be difficult to pull off significantly easier. Doggy-style, for example? Hard to enjoy when one partner's hips are lower than the other's. It's much more fun with something helping either to raise one partner's hips or give their knees a bit of a boost, though — and easier to sustain with the added support throughout. 5. Sitting sex is your friend. Do you have a good couch or a bed with a headboard? If yes, take advantage of the opportunities these magical pieces of furniture afford you. With one partner straddling the other in a sitting position, it doesn't matter how tall either of you are. 6. So is spooning. Although missionary is often described as the default sex position, I actually think it should be spooning. As far as I know, it works for just about everyone — all you need is a large enough surface to have it on. 7. The smaller person doesn't always have to be on top. Beyonce has probably never been taken this literally before. Anyhoo, to the point: Although some of the positions that work the best between partner with a prominent difference in height involve the taller person being on the bottom, it's by no means a hard and fast rule. Combine this one with tip number one and see what works best for you, even if it is plain ol' missionary. 8. Regarding sex standing up: Unless the taller partner is strong enough to hold up the smaller one the entire time, you'll probably need some help for this one. A step stool may not sound like the sexiest thing on the planet, but if you really want to have standing-up-against-the-wall sex, having one on hand for the shorter partner will go a long way towards making it easier. You could also look into acquiring a sex swing. Get creative. 9. And shower sex: You might want to pass on it. It has all the difficulties of sex standing up, plus the added hazards of water and slippery tiles. Other aquatic activities, however, are definitely doable, particularly if you have a roomy tub to do them in. Make sure you choose your playing field wisely, though; having sex in water can cause yeast infections, depending on what other microscopic organisms might be enjoying a little splashy-splashy as well. 10. Remember that there's more to sex than just P-in-V. As far as heterosexual bedroom activities go, we've all sort of been trained to think that actual penis-in-vagina intercourse is the Main Event, with an orgasm or two being the coup de grace. But you know what? It doesn't have to be. There's plenty of fun to be had without it — and there's often much greater flexibility, as well. And don't think this is something only differently-sized partners would do well to remember; it's useful for everyone. Make use of your hands, your mouths, toys, edible body paint — anything goes. There are no rules beyond these two: Make sure everything is consensual, and have fun while you're doing it. Otherwise?

Dengue Fever
Dengue Fever

हर साल दुनिया में लगभग 10 करोड़ लोग डेंगू / Dengue Fever के शिकार होते है। भारत में भी हर साल कई लोगो की Dengue Fever के कारण मृत्यु हो जाती है। हमें रोज समाचार पत्रों में या News channel पर Dengue Fever का आतंक देखने को मिलता है। समय की जरुरत है की इस बीमारी के बारे में लोगो में अधिक से अधिक जागरूकता फैलाई जाए। इस लेख द्वारा मेरी कोशिश है की, आपको Dengue Fever सम्बन्धी अधिक से अधिक जानकारी प्राप्त हो।

Dengue Fever के बारे में संक्षिप्त जानकारी निचे दी गयी है :
Dengue Fever क्या है ?

Dengue Fever यह एक viral बीमारी है जो की Dengue virus के 4 प्रकारों में से किसी एक प्रकार के Dengue virus से होता है। जब कोई रोगी Dengue Fever से ठीक हो जाता है, तब उस मरीज को उस एक प्रकार के Dengue virus से लम्बे समय के लिए प्रतिरोध / immunity मिल जाती है परन्तु अन्य 3 प्रकार के Dengue virus से Dengue Fever दोबारा हो सकता है। दूसरी बार होने वाला Dengue Fever काफी गंभीर हो सकता है जिसे Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever कहते है।

Dengue Fever कैसे होता है ?

Dengue Fever हवा, पानी, साथ खाने से या छूने से नहीं फैलता है। Dengue Fever संक्रमित स्त्री / मादा जाती के Aedes aegypti नामक मच्छर के काटने से होता है। अगर किसी व्यक्ति को Dengue Fever है और उस व्यक्ति को यह मच्छर काट कर उसका खून पिता है तो उस मच्छर में Dengue virus युक्त खून चला जाता है। जब यह संक्रमित मच्छर किसी स्वस्थ व्यक्ति को काट लेता है तो Dengue virus उस स्वस्थ व्यक्ति में चला जाता है।

Aedes aegypti मच्छर की कुछ खास विशेषताए निचे दी गयी है :

यह दिन में ज्यादा सक्रिय होते है.
इन मच्छर के शरीर पर चीते जैसी धारिया होती है.
ज्यादा ऊपर तक नहीं उड़ पाते है.
ठन्डे और छाव वाले जगहों पर रहना ज्यादा पसंद करते है.
पर्दों के पीछे या अँधेरे वाली जगह पर रहते है.
घर के अन्दर रखे हुए शांत पानी में प्रजनन / breeding करते है.
अपने प्रजनन क्षेत्र के 200 meter की दुरी के अन्दर ही उड़ते है.
गटर या रस्ते पर जमा खराब पानी में कम प्रजनन करते है.
पानी सुख जाने के बाद भी इनके अंडे 12 महीनो तक जीवित रह सकते है.
Dengue Fever के लक्षण क्या है ?

संक्रमित मच्छर के काटने के 3 से 14 दिनों बाद Dengue Fever के लक्षण दिखने शुरू होते है। Dengue Fever के लक्षण निचे दिए गए है :
तेज ठंडी लगकर बुखार आना
सरदर्द
आँखों में दर्द
बदनदर्द / जोड़ो में दर्द
भूक कम लगना
जी मचलाना, उलटी
दस्त लगना
चमड़ी के निचे लाल चट्टे आना
Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever की गंभीर स्तिथि में आँख, नाक में से खून भी निकल सकता है
Dengue Fever का इलाज क्या है ?

Dengue Fever का रोकथाम / Prevention ही इसका सबसे अच्छा और बेहतर ईलाज है.
Dengue Fever की कोई विशेष दवा या vaccine नहीं है.
एक viral रोग होने के कारण इसकी दवा निर्माण करना बेहद कठिन कार्य है.
Dengue Fever के इलाज / चिकित्सा में लाक्षणिक चिकित्सा / symptomatic treatment की जाती है.
Dengue Fever की कोई दवा नहीं है पर इस रोग से शरीर पर होने वाले side-effects से बचने के लिए रोगी को डॉक्टर की सलाह अनुसार आराम करना चाहिए और समय पर दवा लेना चाहिए।
रोगी को पर्याप्त मात्रा में आहार और पानी लेना चाहिए। बुखार के लिए डॉक्टर की सलाह अनुसार paracetamol लेना चाहिए।
बुखार या सरदर्द के लिए Aspirin / Brufen का उपयोग न करे.
डॉक्टर की सलाह अनुसार नियमित Platelet count की जाँच करना चाहिए।
हमारी रोगप्रतिकार शक्ति Dengue Fever से लड़ने में सक्षम होती है, इसलिए हमें हमेशा योग्य संतुलित आहार और व्यायाम द्वारा रोग प्रतिकार शक्ति को बढाने की कोशिश करनी चाहिए।
Dengue Fever के बचाव के उपाय क्या है ?

जैसे की मैंने पहले भी लिखा है, Dengue Fever का रोकथाम / Prevention ही इसका सबसे बेहतर ईलाज है।
Dengue Fever के बचाव के उपाय निचे दिए गए है :
घर के अन्दर और आस-पास पानी जमा न होने दे। कोई भी बर्तन में खुले में पानी न जमने दे.
बर्तन को खाली कर रखे या उसे उलटा कर कर रख दे.
अगर आप किसी बर्तन, ड्रम या बाल्टी में पानी जमा कर रखते है तो उसे ढक कर रखे.
अगर किसी चीज में हमेशा पानी जमा कर रखते है तो पहले उसे साबुन और पानी से अच्छे से धो लेना चाहिए, जिससे मच्छर के अंडे को हटाया जा सके.
घर में कीटनाशक का छिडकाव करे.
कूलर का काम न होने पर उसमे जमा पानी निकालकर सुखा कर दे। जरुरत होने पर कूलर का पानी रोज नियमित बदलते रहे.
किसी भी खुली जगह में जैसे की गड्डो में, गमले में या कचरे में पानी जमा न होने दे। अगर पानी जमा है तो उसमे मिटटी डाल दे.
खिड़की और दरवाजे में जाली लगाकर रखे। शाम होने से पहले दरवाजे बंद कर दे.
ऐसे कपडे पहने जो पुरे शरीर को ढक सके.
रात को सोते वक्त मच्छरदानी लगाकर सोए.
अन्य मच्छर विरोधी उपकरणों का इस्तेमाल करे जैसे की electric mosquito bat, repellent cream, sprays etc.
अगर बच्चे खुले में खेलने जाते है तो उने शरीर पर mosquito repellent cream लगाए और पुर शरीर ढके ऐसे कपडे पहनाए।
अपने आस-पास के लोगो को भी मच्छर को फैलने से रोकने के लिए प्रोत्साहित करे.
अपने आस-पास में अगर कोई Dengue Fever या Malaria के मरीज का पता चलता है तो इसकी जानकारी स्वास्थय विभाग एवं नगर निगम को दे, जिससे तुरंत मच्छर विरोधी उपाय योजना की जा सके.
Dengue Fever के ज्यादातर मरीजो की मृत्यु platelet या खून के अभाव में होती है। मेरी आप सभी से request है की जरुरत के समय रक्तदान / Blood Donation करने से बिलकुल न घबराए और साल में कम से कम दो बार Blood Donation जरुर करे.
कई लोग Dengue Fever में Platelet Count बढाने के लिए पपीते के पत्ते का रस पिने के सलाह देते है। पपीते के पत्ते का रस पिने के बाद कई मरीजो में platelet count में सुधार होते हुए देखा गया है। इसका कोई ठोस पुरावा नहीं है और न कोई research हुआ है.

Ways of Dealing with Intestinal Distress

Ways of Dealing with Intestinal Distress

Undigested food that lurks around in the digestive tract produces a host of disorders due to intestinal distress. These disorders range from acidity to gastro-oesophageal reflux and even colon diseases like cancer, irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, gallstones, ulcers and Crohn's disease. Cramps, nausea, vomiting, loose motions, gas, and acidity are some of the most common symptoms that visit the patient as a result of such ailments. There are many ways of dealing with such intestinal distress, as follows :-

  1. Diet: Introduce plenty of fibre into your diet to aid the digestion process. This can cut the risk of many such ailments and also aid in the treatment of the same. Intestinal distress is largely caused by food that is still lurking around in the digestive tract, so it is important to clean out the digestive system with plenty of fibre and water.
  2. Nutrition for better Digestive System Health: Food that is rich in minerals, vitamins, antioxidants and iron will help in creating a stronger system that cleanses the digestive tract and helps in reducing the production of excess acid in the stomach. A balanced diet with plenty of nutrition aids digestion and makes the immunity stronger.
  3. Study your Triggers: Watch out for foods that can trigger reflux action and other acidity related issues on the intake. These can include fatty food, fried and oily food as well as extremely spicy food. Stress is also a major trigger of intestinal distress, so it would be a good idea to avoid stressful situations or take medical help to deal with them in a better manner.
  4. Medication: Antacids and other medication to prevent the onset and growth of such distress can be sought out after due consultation with a medical practitioner. Medication will help in dealing with and altering the acid level production in the stomach.
  5. Surgery: In very extreme cases like ulcers and large size gallstones, surgery may be helpful so that you avoid rupturing the stomach's lining which can lead to a serious infection or even internal bleeding.

Knowing your triggers and getting into a better routine as far as your diet goes is as important as seeing a doctor about the severity of your case when it comes to intestinal distress.

Tips to keep your skin looking gorgeous in winter

Tips to keep your skin looking gorgeous in winter
Winter is here and along with the cool breeze, it also brings along a few skin problems. People experience irritation, hardness and roughness of skin. Incidents of itchy skin due to dryness and contact allergies due to detergents and chemicals also increase in this season. Cold temperatures result in poor blood circulation and widened capillaries

Drink lots of water: People tend to drink less water during winters but it is highly important to hydrate your skin from within. Carry a bottle of water with you whenever you step outside. Herbal tea is also a great remedy to moisturise your skin from within. Don’t leave your skin thirsty. Drink more water and help your skin retain its shine.

Bathe with lukewarm water: Winter is the time when your skin and hair need maximum attention. Though the idea of piping hot water is very tempting, stick to a lukewarm water bath every day. Make sure you use a mild non-drying soap or a moisturising soap to prevent your skin from getting dry and itchy.

Keep your skin moisturised: Choose a good, oil-based moisturiser to keep the skin moisturised and soft. Pay special attention to the exposed parts (and the most affected areas) like your hands, nails, feet and lips. Keep them well moisturised at all times. Use a lip balm to keep your lips soft and supple. Lip balm with SPF works better. Even those who have oily skin must use light moisturising lotions after cleansing to keep the skin soft.

Use a good sunscreen: People like to enjoy the sun during winters but little do they know that exposure to the sun can harm their skin in winter too. Use a sunscreen of SPF 15 or more when you step out in the open. In fact, it should be a part of your daily routine throughout the year. Don’t say goodbye to your sunscreen just because summer is over.

Do not lick your lips: Winter is the season of chapped lips and licking them will make them more chapped. Instead, use a good lip balm, preferably which contains tea tree oil as it helps heal painful cracks.

Internal wellness: This continues to be a requirement all through the year as a healthy skin is a reflection of good inner health. One should continue to eat healthy, drink plenty of water and exercise regularly.

Hello, This is probably due to vaginismus. You need to lubricate it well before insertion and also practice more foreplay to relieve initial anxiety which can often cause vaginal muscles to be tensed.

10 Tips to Treat Obstructed Defecation

10 Tips to Treat Obstructed Defecation

There are a number of digestive problems that can affect a patient, depending on one's diet and daily routine. Indigestion, acidity, loose motions and even constipation are some of the common ailments and conditions that many of us experience. Obstruction in defecation is also one such condition that may be caused by consuming certain kinds of food or due to the digestive health in general. Obstructive defecation syndrome (ODS) is a wide term used to depict the state of patients with defecatory blockage or constipation. These frequently encountered disorders affect 18% of the population .

Diagnosis:

The condition can be diagnosed by a general physical or a gastroenterologist by using the following parameters:

  1. Excessive straining
  2. Incomplete rectal clearing
  3. Use of laxatives
  4. Observing symptoms like stomach pain and anxiety, as well as other aches and pains in the abdomen

Symptoms:

Besides aches and pains, the other symptoms include the following:

  1. Fragmented or unsuccessful attempts to release
  2. Drawn-out episodes in the toilet
  3. Rectal agony
  4. Posture problems

Here are 10 tips to treat the problem of obstructed defecation:

  1. High-fibre diet, and a lot of water and fruits are the most effective and natural treatments of ODS.
  2. Chocolates and other food items which build stool thickness should be avoided since they make defecation difficult.
  3. Increase liquid admission and other products like natural products, vegetables, whole wheat and grain.
  4. In the morning, take one tablespoon of olive oil. It works best on an empty stomach, so have it before anything else.
  5. Consume one teaspoon of blackstrap molasses. Begin with moderate doses in case you don't like the taste of it. Eventually, you can add some warm water or tea to it to weaken the taste.
  6. Mix one tablespoon of flaxseed oil with one glass of squeezed orange. You may consume it as and when required to avoid dehydration and subsequent obstruction.However,one needs to give it at least five hours to begin working. It will begin to show results only after a few hours of regular consumption.
  7. Aloe is not only good for minor cuts but also in reducing stomach aches. It's best to utilise aloe vera gel that has been directly extracted from the plant.
  8. Baking soda lies at the heart of home cures. It's staggeringly flexible, and does its work 95% of the time. It works extremely well for blockages.
  9. Drink one glass of prune juice in the morning and one during the evening to diminish obstruction.
  10. Dandelions may merely look like weeds, yet you may see them differently after they relieve your clogging.

Why Is Eating Very Fast Bad For Your Health?

M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition (Delhi University)

Why Is Eating Very Fast Bad For Your Health?
Why is eating fast bad for your health?

Are you a fast-eater? as a child most of us are told to slow down, chew the food well and only then gulp it down. Most of us have been told time and again to slow down and chew while eating. Yet, some people continue with the habit of eating fast. This might change if they knew what their speed of eating can do to their body.

Evils of eating food very fast -

1. Slows digestion - eating and swallowing fast means that the food has not been chewed properly. This delays and complicates the process of digestion. For proper digestion, the food needs to be broken down. Also, when we do not chew properly, the food that goes down the throat, is accompanied by lesser saliva, the enzymes of which are needed for the digestion to begin.

2. Can make you bloated - while eating in a hurry, chances are also there that we swallow air along without food. This makes are bloated and also gives us stomach gas.

3. Makes you eat more - to feel full, the brain and the stomach need to be at the same page to emit the signal of fullness. However, if you don't chew and just swallow, the brain-stomach coordination will break and you will end up eating more than what you need to.

4. Leads to weight gain - overeating will lead to problems like weight gain, indigestion, etc.

5. May choke you - more than thirty different muscles are required to swallow and if eating in a hurry, you increase the chance of food going down the wrong pipe, which can choke you.
