Irritation, sleeplessness, excessive crying, mood swing noticed since a week. what should i do ?
You do not mention that do you have any mental stress in past few days. If there is any then you can tell us. Till then try to keep yourself calm and relaxed with relaxation therapy and meditation. At bed time or whenever you feel irritation and mood swing starts deep breathing and count 20-1 with every inhale and exhale. Then starts thinking that I am relax, I am calm and I can do everything, and also I love my self. Try it regular basis and you will feel better.

Dear Lybrate user. Please don’t panic. There is no chance at all regarding your loss of sexual ability. You must understand erectile dysfunction. There is nothing called erectile dysfunction while having masturbation. Loosing erection in the initial stages of sex or not having erection at all or having late erection or lack of sexual desire are called erectile dysfunction. Erectile dysfunction can be a sign of a physical or psychological condition. It can cause stress, relationship strain, and low self-confidence. The main symptom is a man's inability to get or keep an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse. Patients suffering from erectile dysfunction should first be evaluated for any underlying physical and psychological conditions. If treatment of the underlying conditions doesn't help, medications and assistive devices, such as pumps, can be prescribed. Yoga, meditation and diet could be prescribed once we know the basic reasons for it. Two natural treatments for ED that have shown promise are red ginseng and pomegranate juice. Ginseng is thought to increase nitric oxide production, leading to improved blood flow. Pomegranate juice is a potent antioxidant and can help too. Psychological reasons usually get cleared with sex therapy. I suggest online sex therapy. Take care.

Your hba1c is in a diabetic range. For non diabetic it should be less than 5.7. For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in fat and high in fibre. Walking for 30 mins a day for at least 5 days in a week is recommended. Follow a stress free life. After doing this for around 2-3 months recheck your hba1c, fbs and ppbs.

Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have problem of Premature Ejaculation. The white sticky discharge you get even with slight excitement is nothing but a secretion of Periurethral glands located in urethra. This is normal secretion of these glands which help in free passage of thick semen through Urethra during ejaculation. This is excessive in your case .It will settle down itself once you get used to normal sexual life.

It is called fear of vagina. It is one of the type of phobia. You do not have any stress. But you are in phobia. Behaviour modification and psychological counselling will helps to you very much. So better to consult psychologist. Sex therapy is needed. These type of problems are common in present days. So many people have this type of problems. It is curable. There is no medicine for this. It is behavioural problem. Behaviour therapy and life style modification will helps to you very much. So better to consult psychologist. Who is also deal sexual problems. It is better to consult him. Do not worry and do not feel about it. It takes much time to recover it. Patience is required. It is solvable. Everything depend on the efficiency of the psychologist. Be sociable and be friendly with others. Ok best of luck.

I am not able to have sex with my wife every day feeling weakness what should I do.
Overall sex stamina improves by healthy lifestyle. Regular sleep, exercise and meal are the foremost things. In diet cow milk, cow butter and garlic are proven sexual tonic. Regular healthy diet containing carbohydrate, protein and minerals-vitamins is necessary. Specific diet depends on culture and geographic situation. Exercise to control your weight and make you fit. Sleep to relax your mind. All above measures help you to relive mental stress also which indirectly help to perform better. Another aspect is emotional attachment and love between partners in overall life apart from the sex. If it is good no need of any tonic, natural stamina would suffice. Hope I have answered your query, I will be happy to help further, regards,

Hi lybrate user. It is not cancer. It is simply a fibroid. At first you have to follow some basic things so that you get better results in a short period of time. 1) take food twice in a day only 2) drink only 100-150 ml of lukewarm water during meals 3) avoid late night sleeping habits 4) avoid oily, spicy, salty, junk, fast and fermented foods 5) walk upto 4-5 kilometres daily. A) take half tsf of avipattikar churna and half tsf of lavanbhaaskar churna after meals. B) take 30 ml of audumbaravleha and 10 ml of honey along with lukewarm water, early in the morning on empty stomach and before meals half an hour. C) take 30 ml of aloe vera juice along with 30 ml of lukewarm water at night before sleep. Do all these things for thirty days and reply me for further suggestions. Thanks.
