Delay in periods after consuming I-pill is quite common. Wait for a week and if you do not get your periods then take pregnancy test.

You can conceive with pcod but before that you require medication to regularize your cycle. Start doing some exercise or yoga and take proper diet with fruits and salad.

Paraphilia - Understanding the Common Types!

MD, BHMS, Post Graduate Diploma In Hospital Administration (PGDHA)
Sexologist, Delhi
Paraphilia - Understanding the Common Types!

There are a number of intimacy related problems that we all go through. While fantasy and desire for a particular thing may be common for every individual, an excessive expression of the same is not. Paraphilia is the experience of extreme sexual excitement or arousal to unusual items, interests, circumstances, fantasies, behaviours or individuals. If paraphilia causes distress or disability to the individual, or if its fulfilment involves personal harm (or the danger of such damage) to others, it is viewed as a paraphilic issue.

It might be hard to talk to individuals suffering from paraphilia because of the embarrassment and reluctance to talk openly about the sensitive topic. It is very important to gain the confidence with these patients to encourage them to speak up and discuss their issues freely. There are diverse types of paraphilia, each of which has an alternate focus of the sufferer's sexual excitement:

  1. Voyeurism: Viewing a clueless or non-consenting person who is bare, undressing or taking part in sexual movement.
  2. Exhibitionism: Uncovering one's own particular private parts to an unknown individual.
  3. Frotteurisim: Touching or rubbing against a non-consenting individual.
  4. Sexual masochism: Being embarrassed, beaten, bound or generally suffering.
  5. Sexual sadism: Taking pleasure from making someone else suffer physically or sexually.
  6. Pedophilia: Sexually engaging with a child that is prepubescent (ordinarily 13 years of age or more youthful)
  7. Fetishism: Sexual interest with non-living articles or specific body parts of one’s self or someone else.
  8. Transvestism: Cross-dressing that could be sexually arousing and usually interferes with their functioning.

Some of the symptoms and side effects of paraphilia can include distraction to the point of obsession. This interrupts the individual's endeavours to consider different things or take part in more routine sexual activities with an appropriate partner or accomplice. Paraphilia sufferers may encounter pain, sadness or uneasiness that is incidentally soothed by taking part in paraphilic activities, thereby, giving rise to an addictive cycle.

Treatment

There are some treatment alternatives that should be considered, depending upon the particular needs of every individual case. These alternatives are as follows:

Psychotherapy
Psychotherapy involves conditioning of the brain and mind-set towards normalcy. This may happen through different methods of recovery. These are as follows:

  1. Psychological behavioural treatment
  2. Orgasmic reconditioning
  3. Training of social skills
  4. Twelve-stage programmes
  5. Group therapy
  6. Individual expressive-supportive therapy

Pharmacologic treatment
Pharmacologic mediations might be used to smother sexual conduct. Pharmaceuticals that might be considered in the treatment of paraphilic issue include the following:

  1. Antidepressants (e.g. specific serotonin reuptake inhibitors [SSRIs])
  2. Long-acting gonadotropin-discharging hormones
  3. Antiandrogens
  4. Phenothiasines
  5. Mind stabilisers

Surgical mediations (not generally utilised)
Surgical mediations that might be considered (however, not generally utilised) are mentioned below:

  1. Psychosurgery using stereotaxic tractotomy and limbic leucotomy
  2. Reciprocal orchidectomy (surgical mutilation)

I am a 23 year old man. I am in a relationship with a girl for five long years. We love each other so much. It took 5 years for us to become mentally strong to commit for sex. We followed safety precautions while we had sex. Now the problem is that, she usually has her periods around 18-19 dates of the month. But it is 22nd of the month still she is not getting the signs of periods. We are afraid of having a baby now itself. Is this a sign of pregnancy? Or shall we wait for a day or two more? What shall we do now? Suggest us some medications to avoid pregnancy if you think she going to be a pregnant. Save us from drowning.

Missing a scheduled period is usually the first sign of pregnancy. Your friend should go for a urine pregnancy test. If that is negative you can be almost sure that she is not pregnant. You can wait for periods for another week. If it is positive, then there is >90% chance that she is pregnant. In that case you both may consult a gynecologist for termination of the unwanted pregnancy.

Basic thing is her sutures in uterus should heel properly and hence we give a six month gap for next pregnancy.

As long as she does not have issues with bleeding it should be okay. However I suggest get a scan done first to see that everything is okay with the pregnancy

Vaginal itching usually indicates a fungal infection. You can apply surfaz-sn cream or imidil cream locally 2-3 times a day. If you are sexually active you can use an intravaginal pessary clingen - forte everyday one at bedtime for 7 days.
