Better to take calcium supplements as our diet is usually not adequately rich on calcium. Also take milk & milk products, Nagli, soybean,regular walk & exercise to help you go through menopause.

Unwanted 72 should be taken within 72 hrs of unprotected intercourse. It prevents pregnancy but has no effect on existing pregnancy.

She probably has absent vaginal canal. Which can be corrected by surgery-Vaginoplasty. Genital surgery is one of the most frequently performed surgeries, The surgery is almost painless because there are enough medications to keep the pain under control. To the best of our knowledge no medicines or creams work to repair it or change the size Size.

Causes and Complications of Pain During Intercourse

Causes and Complications of Pain During Intercourse

Sex, which gives pleasure to most, can be painful for some. There are a lot of reasons such as allergic reactions or psychological reasons so as to why one may feel pain from sexual intercourse.

Symptoms of pain affect both and women equally.

Pain from sex in men can be caused due to following reasons:

  1. One of the most common cause of pain during sex is a tight foreskin.
  2. Inflammation of the prostate may cause difficulties such as pain during sex.
  3. Infections in the penile area such as thrush which results in the irritated skin cause pain during sex.
  4. Damage to the foreskin covering the penis may cause a sharp and stinging pain during sexual intercourse.

If the symptoms are exaggerated and persist then it is recommended to consult a medical professional. In the case of itchiness and unusual discharges from the genitals, an STI (sexually transmitted infection) test is carried out. Another common treatment is using lubricants during sex to get rid of the dryness that is causing the pain. In the case of allergic reactions, it is recommended to test the products before using them.

Pain from sex in women can be caused due to the following reasons:

  1. Infections such as genital herpes (a viral disorder) or gonorrhea (a bacterial disorder in the vaginal skin) can cause pain during sex.
  2. If the passage in the vagina is narrow then it can cause pain during sex.
  3. If the women have reached menopause it makes the vagina dry. This can cause modifications in hormones that restrict the vagina from being wet during sex and causes pain.
  4. Allergic reactions from latex used in condoms can cause irritation in the genital region that may cause pain.

You are suffering from oligohydramnios, if the ctg and umbilical artery doppler studies are normal then you can consider amnioinfusion else it is better to deliver early as there is evident intrauterine growth restriction in your child who has a average birth weight for gestation.

If your are bleeding then you are not pregnant, sometimes the OCP's (oral contraceptive pills) may not work. Please try to avoid OCP's they will have several side effects, instead you try to do that 1 week before and after your periods so that you will not get pregnant. This period is called safe period.

My friend had sex with 2 partners now she is not getting date from past two months n now her legs were filled with water and had throat infection from one week. N she also used tablets for 10 days to get date. Why is this problem happening and is this any disease.

First of all she should get her urine tested for pregnancy because if pregnancy is there then those 10 days tablets dose will not get her the periods but if test is negative then she should wait for some more time for withdrawal bleeding to happen as it takes about a week to ten days for periods to come.

Hi, after eating feel bloated is because of GASTRIC trouble. Irregular periods and Leucorrhea is due to hormones Imbalance pcod estrogen progesterone Thyroid FSH LH hormones disturbances. Numerous bumps is skin disease like any fungal or infection like UTI urinary tract infection. So once consult a nearby gynaecologist she can examine and diagnose according to your reports.

First control diabetes. HbA1c should be maximum 6.5 before conceiving. It's better if you can consult gynaecologist for pre-conceptional care, right now.
