Hello, yes it is necessary for hcg levels to increase by 65% to double in 48 hrs as this confirms the viability of the foetus whether the foetus shall survive/ grow further or not.

Tea Vs Coffee. What’s A Better Beverage?

Tea Vs Coffee. What’s A Better Beverage?
Tea Vs Coffee

Tea and coffee are the most popular hot beverages in the world. The northern side of India majorly consumes a lot of tea as its daily beverage while the southern states in India indulge more into coffee. Both contain caffeine; but have different tastes as well as addictions.

Here are the benefits as well as drawbacks of the two.

1. Caffeine - Coffee has more caffeine than tea. So if you want to stay awake or want a sudden rush of energy, choose a cup of coffee over a cup of tea. Too much caffeine though will eradicate sound sleep and can cause high blood pressure issues.
2. Acidity - Drinking tea can cause acidity to a great extent. Coffee on the other hand doesn’t cause acidity, to that extent. Never consume tea on an empty stomach; you are likely to develop gas or acidity owing to the same.
3. Overall health - Tea has a lot of antioxidants as compared to coffee. Eliminate cream, milk, sugars etc from tea and drink the decoction daily. It’s a very good anti-oxidant that keeps the overall health of a person in good condition. Tea consumed with lemon juice clears the intestine, further eliminating toxins for a healthier body.
4. Diabetes - Coffee is said to prevent the occurrence of type 2 diabetes. It doesn’t let inflammations take root causing the glucose in the body to be utilized pretty well. It also helps the body in utilizing the insulin produced by the later in a far better way than normal.
5. Nutrients - Coffee is more nutritious than tea with more calcium, phosphorous, potassium and choline. Tea simply has more folate than coffee.
Coffee might seem to have more health benefits over tea but if you have weak immunity and sleep problems, you can pick tea over coffee.

Yes, you can still enjoy a mug of coffee every now and then during your pregnancy. Just make sure that you don't have limited caffeine in a day. That's two mugs of instant coffee or one mug of brewed coffee at the max. If you regularly have more caffeine a day while you're pregnant, you'll have a higher risk of miscarriage or having a baby with a low birth weight. Babies born with a low birth weight are at increased risk of health problems when they get older.

What are the side effects of using i-pill a lot of times within one month. Does it affect in pregnancy also.

What are the side effects of using i-pill a lot of times within one month. Does it affect in pregnancy also.
It causes irregularities in menses. I-pill is just an merge cry contraceptive. It would be highly inappropriate to use it multiple times in a single month. If you have sexual intimacies with your partner so often, you may go for better alternatives.

Orgasm basically depends on the stimulation, during fore play or while having intercourse/masturbation. Meaning the sexual gratification depends on the external factors and the intensity of you being stimulated/aroused by the carassing/touch are pressure on the sexual organs. amongst them the breast and clitoris play major role. while performing the intercourse or manual during masturbation these need to be stimulated. having said this, there is another saying the arousal depends depends not between the thighs, meaning genitals but between ears, meaning brain. so every thing depends on your arousal due to the partner/self stimulation and imagination. But do not expect orgasm to occur every time you have intercourse, because arousal will become less and less as the frequency increase. all the best

Your girlfriend shouts while inserting penis in vagina. I advise you to do foreplay of 15 to 20 minutes first before going for sex. This will loose her vagina. Follow this and give feedback.

Hi, since your period is delayed you must have checked urine pregnancy test .Is it negative? That is why your doctor has prescribed progesterone for withdrawal bleeding. Once you get your period you will be given Tablets for the egg formation and a follicular scan will be done serially to track the egg development. Once it matures an inj may or may not be prescribed for the egg release and will be asked to do intercourse at that time so that chances to get pregnant is more. Please do not worry.

Smoking And Sexual Dysfunction

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Ahmedabad
Smoking And Sexual Dysfunction

Smoking cigarettes and impotence

  • Erectile dysfunction (ed), also called impotence, can be caused by a wide range of physical and psychological factors. 
  •  Among them is cigarette smoking. 
  • It’s not surprising since smoking can damage your blood vessels, and ed is often a result of poor arterial blood supply to the penis. Fortunately, if you quit smoking, your vascular health is likely to improve, as well as your sexual health and performance.

Smoking and changes in blood vessels

You’ve probably heard a lot about the health risks of smoking. That’s because cigarette smoking can damage just about every part of your body. The chemicals in cigarette smoke injure the lining of your blood vessels and affect the way they function. Those chemicals can also harm your heart, brain, kidneys, and various other tissues throughout the body.

The risk of smoking to your erectile health is specifically due to the effects of cigarette chemicals on the blood vessels in the penis. An erection results when the arteries in the penis expand and fill with blood after receiving signals from nerves in the penis. The nerves are responding to sexual arousal signals from the brain. Even if the nervous system is operating at full strength, an erection might not be physically possible if the blood vessels are unhealthy due to smoking.
