Just 4 months have passed since your marriage. You need not worry. Sometimes it takes time. But still, here are some tips for getting conceived. Have relations on 12th, 14th and 16th day of menstrual cycle if your cycle is regular. Keep yourself lied down for half an hour after intercourse. Keep a pillow under your back while intercourse. I hope these tips help you.

High-Risk Pregnancy - Tips To Take Care Of Yourself!

The complications and dangers associated with pregnancy often increase manifold in the case of a high-risk pregnancy. Extra medical attention is required for those mothers who are going through a high-risk pregnancy.

In order to avoid any complication which threatens your or your child’s life, you have to be extra careful about the food you eat as well as the daily activities you do. Not taking care of yourself can put you and your child’s health in danger. Given below are a few tips to take care of one’s self during the period of a high-risk pregnancy -

Keep away From Any Sign of Danger during Pregnancy
In order to make sure that you and your child are not under any threat, you have to be careful of your health. Feeling nauseous and the urge to vomit is quite common during pregnancy, however, you need to be aware if you feel nauseous during this specific period. In case your nausea and vomiting gets out of control and interferes with your eating habits, you should seek medical attention and keep your doctor updated. You should also be aware of the stages of progress of the baby during the time of pregnancy. Make sure that the progress level is just normal and there are no abnormal changes in the baby.

Check Your Diet and Eat a Sufficient Amount 


When it comes to your diet, you need to make sure that you don’t eat too less or too much. High-risk pregnancies need to be dealt with a lot of care and your diet plays a major role in such cases. In any case of pregnancy the doctors suggest increasing your calorie intake by at least 300 calories. The concept of eating for two can make you gain excessive weight which may lead to other medical complications. Including calcium supplements of 1000 milligrams along with 45 mg of iron, five serving of fruits and vegetables should be considered in your daily diet.

 

Eating very less or being on a diet is also inadvisable during a high-risk pregnancy. A healthy amount of nutrients and calories are required for the body to function normally during such cases.

Exercising During High-Risk Pregnancies
A number of exercises are prescribed during such pregnancy cases. Kegel exercises to strengthen your vaginal muscles, doing hamstring exercises, going for a walk daily and avoiding daily chores which involve handling heavy objects are few of the recommendations.

Following these simple steps can help you keep your child’s health out of danger. However, make sure to avoid taking any step on your own, without consulting your doctor first. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

MASTURBATION

MASTURBATION
What is masturbation?
What is masturbation?Masturbation is the stimulation of the sexual organs usually by a person himself, to obtain an orgasm. Though masturbation can be done by partners on one another, the term is more commonly used when sexual satisfaction is provided by self. Most people use their hands to masturbate, but instruments like vibrators and dildoes may also be used. These imitate the movements of the hand and provide sexual pleasure.

Masturbation is a way of releasing pent up sexual energy. Most people start masturbating at the time of puberty. With changes in an individual's hormonal profile during puberty, there is a surge of sexual energy which can be released with the help of masturbation. Masturbation is reported more in males than in females. More than a physiological difference in libido, this may be due to sociological taboos on females. Females also tend to discontinue or reduce masturbation when they form sexual relationships.
Is masturbation harmful?
Is masturbation harmful?This is the biggest myth surrounding masturbation. If indulged in moderation, masturbation, on the contrary, is a healthy practice that releases sexual energy. According to certain religious practices and beliefs, masturbation is harmful since it results in the loss of a man's "seeds" and makes him weak. Masturbation in women has largely been ignored in the religious texts. Other myths surrounding the act are that it reduces virility by making the semen less thick thereby reducing the chances of a man to bear children. This is totally untrue. Masturbation does not cause any loss of strength or virility in a person.
What are the other myths surrounding masturbation?
What are the other myths surrounding masturbation?

Only males masturbate – this is not true. Females masturbate as much as males do. However, they tend to report it less than males due to the social stigma attached to it. Also it has been observed that females tend to reduce or discontinue masturbation once they get into meaningful sexual relationships.

Masturbation is unhealthy – masturbation per se does not cause any health hazards. It is not an unhealthy habit. However, it may be mentally unhealthy if it assumes obsessive proportions and the individual is unable to think of anything else. It may also have physical repercussions if the instrument used to masturbate is dirty or infected.

Only adolescents masturbate – though the practice usually begins during adolescence, almost all adults practise it at some time or the other.

Masturbation does not provide as much satisfaction as sexual intercourse – sometimes masturbation is more satisfying than the sex act. This is because, during masturbation, an individual is in control of his own movements and can maximize the pleasure according to his or her needs. During sexual intercourse, the degree of satisfaction may, to some extent, lie with the partner.

People masturbate only if they have unfulfilling sexual relationships – people also masturbate for self satisfaction, even when they have fully satisfying sexual relationships.

Can one stop masturbating?
Can one stop masturbating?One can stop masturbating if one wants to. Just as one can live without indulging in sex, one can also stop masturbating with some will power. However, since the activity has nothing to be ashamed of and most people do it, there is no scientific reason to discontinue it. If one still wishes to discontinue, then the sexual energy may need to be channelised into alternative physical activities.
