Nope it's not a problem. Probably your not having enough foreplay or you can use a lubricating gel to make it softer and easier for the intercourse.

Symptoms of Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia Disorder and Psychosis

Symptoms of Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia Disorder and Psychosis

Bipolar disorder: Also known as manic-depressive disorder, bipolar disorder is the sudden change in mood, which might take a swing from depression to mania. It is a very severe disorder and can bring about unstable and precarious behavior. The risk of having suicidal tendencies is also quite high. Bipolar disorder is usually treated with medicines alongside therapy.


  1. Bipolar mania
  2. Hypomania
  3. Depression
  4. Mood swings

The mood swings do not follow any particular pattern.

Schizophrenia Disorder: Schizophrenia is a chronic mental disorder which affects the general behavior and lifestyle of a person. Schizophrenics might face a difficulty in distinguishing between the real and the imaginary.

Contrary to public belief, schizophrenia is neither split personality nor multiple personalities. It is not an after effect of any previous traumatic experience. It might be genetic or a result of chemical imbalance in the brain chemicals.


  1. Paranoia
  2. Senseless talking
  3. Feeling apathetic
  4. Insomnia
  5. Personality change
  6. Hallucinations
  7. Delusions
  8. Withdrawal from society
  9. Attention deficit disorder or add

No specific medicine is available for schizophrenia. Usually, rehabilitation is advised to regain confidence and recover skills required for a productive life.

Psychosis: Similar to schizophrenia, psychosis is another mental disorder which is characterized by hallucinations and delusions. Psychosis is extremely dangerous and harmful as it might spur you to cause self-inflicted wounds and pain. It is of utmost importance to consult a doctor immediately after experiencing psychotic symptoms.


  1. Hallucinations
  2. Delusions
  3. Depression
  4. Anxiety
  5. Suspicion
  6. Insomnia or hypersomnia
  7. Withdrawal from society
  8. Attention deficit disorder or add
  9. Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder or ADHD

The only available diagnosis for psychosis is a psychiatric evaluation. Certain medical tests and x-rays may also be executed along with it to detect the underlying cause. Psychosis may be caused due to Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, brain tumors, Alzheimer's disease, epilepsy, etc.

Although there aren't any medical complications in psychosis, it should not be left untreated due to its harmful effects. Medication and therapy are the known cures of psychosis.

Gathiya Rog Me Parhej in HIndi - गठिया रोग मे परहेज

Gathiya Rog Me Parhej in HIndi - गठिया रोग मे परहेज

गठिया, एक या अधिक जोड़ों की सूजन है। हालांकि, "गठिया" शब्द का अर्थ जोड़ों की सूजन है, परंतु इस शब्द का उपयोग लगभग 200 आमवाती रोगों और शर्तों का वर्णन करने के लिए किया जाता है, जो जोड़ों, जोड़ों के आसपास के ऊतकों और अन्य संयोजी ऊतक को प्रभावित करते हैं । सामान्य गठिया के लक्षणों में सूजन, दर्द, कड़ापन और गति की सीमा में कमी शामिल है। गठिया के कुछ प्रकार, जैसे संधिशोथ गठिया और ल्यूपस (एसएलई), कई अंगों को प्रभावित कर सकते हैं और व्यापक लक्षण पैदा कर सकते हैं। गठिया 65 वर्ष या उससे अधिक आयु के लोगों में बहुत आम है, लेकिन सभी उम्र के लोग (बच्चों सहित) प्रभावित हो सकते हैं।

लगभग 200 प्रकार की गठिया स्थितियां होती हैं, जो सात मुख्य समूहों में विभाजित हैं:
1. सूजन संबंधी गठिया
2. अपक्षयी गठिया 
3. मुलायम ऊतक पेशाब का दर्द
4. पीठ दर्द
5. संयोजी ऊतक रोग
6. संक्रामक गठिया
7. मेटाबोलिक गठिया
जब आपके गठिया होते हैं, तो आपका शरीर सूजन की स्थिति में होता है। आप जो खाते हैं वह न केवल सूजन को बढ़ा सकता है, बल्कि मोटापा, हृदय रोग और मधुमेह जैसी अन्य चिरकाली स्थितियों का खतरा भी बढ़ा सकता है। इसके अलावा, कुछ खाद्य पदार्थ सूजन से लड़ने, हड्डियों को मजबूत करने और प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली को बढ़ावा देने के लिए जाने जाते हैं। 

गठिया रोग मे परहेज
निम्नलिखित खाद्य पदार्थों का परहेज़ करें:
1. तला और प्रसंस्कृत खाद्य पदार्थ: 
शोधकर्ताओं ने पाया है कि तला हुआ और संसाधित खाद्य पदार्थों की खपत को कम करने से सूजन कम हो सकती है और वास्तव में शरीर की प्राकृतिक सुरक्षा को बहाल करने में मदद मिलती है। वनस्पति तेलों में तला हुआ भोजन से बचें, जो ओमेगा -6 फैटी एसिड में अधिक है। 
2. मीठा: डेसर्ट, पेस्ट्री, चॉकलेट बार, सोडा, यहां तक कि फलों के रस का विरोध करना मुश्किल हो सकता है। वे रक्त की अम्लता बढ़ा सकते हैं और सूजन को बढ़ा सकते हैं। चीनी कई नामों से जाना जाता है, इसलिए संघटक लेबल पर "ओज़" में समाप्त होने वाले शब्दों का ध्यान दें, जैसे कि फ्रुक्टोज या सुक्रोज़।
3. लाल मांस: इसमें एरेक्इडोनिक एसिड नामक एक ओमेगा -6 फैटी एसिड का उच्च स्तर होता है, जो दर्द और सूजन को बढ़ा सकता है। अच्छी गुणवत्ता वाले लाल मांस का एक छोटा टुकड़ा फायदेमंद हो सकता है, लोहा जैसे अच्छे स्तरों की आपूर्ति कर सकता है; हालांकि, गठिया वाले लोगों को प्रति सप्ताह एक या दो बार से ज्यादा नहीं खाना चाहिए।
4. कॉफ़ी: कॉफी भी रक्त की बढ़ती अम्लता का कारण बन सकती है, जिससे सूजन बढ़ जाती है। हरी चाय और हर्बल चाय बेहतर विकल्प हैं।
5. नैटशाइड परिवार की सब्जियां: टमाटर, सफ़ेद आलू, बैंगन और काली मिर्च गठिया वाले कुछ लोगों में दर्द और सूजन को बढ़ा सकते हैं।
6. मोनो-सोडियम ग्लूटामेट (एम.एस.जी): मोनो-सोडियम ग्लूटामेट (एम.एस.जी) एक स्वाद बढ़ाने वाला खाद्य योजक है जो सबसे अधिक तैयार एशियाई भोजन और सोया सॉस में पाया जाता है। यह फास्ट फूड, तैयार सूप्स, सलाद ड्रेसिंग और डेली मांस में भी जोड़ा जाता है। यह क्रोनिक सूजन को ट्रिगर कर सकता है और यकृत के स्वास्थ्य को प्रभावित कर सकता है।
7. नमक और परिरक्षक: लंबे समय तक शेल्फ जीवन को बढ़ावा देने के लिए कई खाद्य पदार्थों में अत्यधिक नमक और अन्य संरक्षक शामिल होते हैं। कुछ लोगों के लिए, नमक की अतिरिक्त खपत के कारण जोड़ों की सूजन हो सकती है।
8. शराब और तंबाकू: तंबाकू और शराब का इस्तेमाल कई तरह की स्वास्थ्य समस्याएं पैदा कर सकता है, जिनमें कुछ आपके जोड़ों को प्रभावित कर सकती हैं। धूम्रपान करने वालों को संधिशोथ के विकास के लिए अधिक खतरा होता है, जबकि जो लोग शराब का सेवन करते हैं वे गाउट के विकास के लिए अधिक जोखिम रखते हैं। इसके अतिरिक्त, शराब यकृत के लिए एक बोझ है। अत्यधिक उपयोग यकृत फ़ंक्शन को कमजोर कर देता है, अन्य बहु-अंग परस्पर क्रियाओं को बाधित कर सकता है और सूजन पैदा कर सकता है।
अपने आहार में फल और सब्जियों के अनुपात में वृद्धि, सूजन को बढ़ावा देने वाले खाद्य पदार्थों पर की कटाई, मछली को अपना मुख्य प्रोटीन बनाने और अधिक ओमेगा -3 प्राप्त करने से आपके गठिया के लक्षणों में बड़ा अंतर हो सकता है।

Is Drinking Hot Chocolate More Than Just Taste?
Drinking hot chocolate and its benefits

Drinking hot chocolate is not only about its delicious taste or only keeping us warm during winter nights. It has many benefits to our overall health.

Cocoa powder in chocolate is a wonderful source of flavonoids. Flavonoids are rich in antioxidants which slow down aging process and protect the skin. Antioxidants present in flavonoids also fight free radicals in our body, hence protect us against cancer and other unwanted infections.

Hot chocolate also contain phytochemicals known as theobromine which improves blood flow to brain. This results in increased brain activity and stimulates memory power. It helps to fight against dementia and also helps the patients who already suffer from dementia. Improved blood flow also lowers blood pressure and improves heart health.

Mood lifting hot chocolate is also a good source of various minerals like potassium, manganese, magnesium, copper and iron.

Diet Tips for Pregnant Women

Diet Tips for Pregnant Women

Before I start bombarding you with advice, please accept my heartiest congratulations on being pregnant. This is a unique lifetime situation for you, so enjoy and have the fondest memories ever.

Despite having the responsibility to take care of the nutritional needs for your growing fetus, you do not have to eat for two people. All you need is 300 more calories in the second half of pregnancy and 500 more calories when you are breastfeeding.

Try and have 3 main meals and three snacks in a day to give you constant supply of energy. Cornflakes, fruits, Chilla, poha, sprouts and eggs make good snacks and have high nutrient value. Avoid overindulging in cereals like wheat and rice as these result in a high sugar surge followed by a sudden drop, making you lethargic and low in energy.

Include as many colors in your diet as possible; as veggies or fruits and you would not go deficient in any nutrient. For example- yellow color as in mango, ripe banana, pumpkin etc, red color as in tomatoes, water melon, pomegranate etc..

Avoid eating raw salads(unless at home where you are sure that the veggies have been washed nicely), uncooked meat like grilled stuff from outside, which could have remained partially cooked at the core and may cause infection. In parties, it is better to consume the fried stuff instead which ensures that all the germs have been killed.

Certain foods like unripe pineapple, raw papaya, and pineapple should not be consumed in large quantities in the first three months. Avoid belue cheese, sea water fish ( if not cooked properly) and canned food containing monosodium glutamate.

Pregnancy slows down the digestion, so eat your dinner early. Have 2-3 hours gap before dinner and sleep. If you feel hungry at bedtime, you can take a glass of milk or a small snack.

Stay physically active and do not overstuff yourself. A normal healthy person does not require any commercially available protein supplement powders, but if you feel your diet may be deficient or you do not have time to prepare healthy snacks, it is OK to include some supplements in your diet but guard against too much weight gain as these powders are usually high in calories and fat content.

It is OK to have all the stuff your mom lovingly prepares for you, but mind the portion size. After all, you are going to be pregnant only once or twice in your life.

My friend has a skin tag near vagina. What is the easy treatment for that without much pain.

General Physician, Nashik
Tea tree oil is one of the best natural methods for skin tag removal at home. Soak a cotton ball in water and then, put at least 2-3 drops of tea tree oil on it. Now, lightly rub it over the skin tag in circular motions.

General Physician,
Travelers to Nepal must take precautions to prevent cholera

Post earthquake the biggest fear is cholera epidemic. One must learn lessons from the Haitri cholera epidemic where ten months after the largest urban disaster in modern history, a devastating 7.0-magnitude earthquake on January 12, 2010 that killed over 316,000 and affected 3 million, Haiti faced an outbreak of cholera.

By the end of 2011, the outbreak resulted in over 500,000 infections and 7,000 deaths. Cholera also spread to the Dominican Republic which by end of 2011 recorded over 21,000 cholera cases and 363 deaths. In the epidemic patient zero was identified as a 28-year-old Haitian who was exposed to cholera while bathing in, and drinking from, a river near the peacekeepers.

Ending the epidemic requires a concerted, multi-sectoral effort; reconstruction of water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) infrastructure; hygiene education and free access to cholera treatment.

Cholera is a bacterial disease that can cause diarrhea and dehydration. It spreads through the ingestion of contaminated food or drinking water.

Travelers should drink and use safe water. Bottled water with unbroken seals and canned/bottled carbonated beverages are safe. One should use safe water to brush teeth, wash and prepare food, and make ice. One should clean food preparation areas and kitchenware with soap and safe water and let dry completely before reuse. One should not use piped water, drinks sold in cups or bags, or ice. All drinking water and water used to make ice should be boiled or treated with chlorine.

Safe water can be prepared by boiling it for one minute or treating the water with chlorine purification tablets or household bleach.

One can add 8 drops of household bleach for every 1 gallon of water (or 2 drops of household bleach for every 1 liter of water) and wait 30 minutes before drinking.

One should always store your treated water in a clean, covered container.

Washing hands is the best bet. One should wash hands often with soap and safe water before eating food, before preparing prepare food, before feeding children, after using the latrine or toilet, after cleaning child?s bottom and after taking care of someone ill with diarrhea. If no soap is available one can scrub hands often with ash or sand and rinse with safe water.

One should use latrines or bury the feces. One should not defecate in open. One can use chemical toilets. One should clean latrines and surfaces contaminated with feces using a solution of 1 part household bleach to 9 parts water.

One should defecate at least 30 meters away from any body of water and then bury the feces. One should dig new latrines or temporary pit toilets at least a half-meter deep and at least 30 meters away from any body of water.

Regarding cooking food, one should cook food well (especially seafood), keep it covered, eat it hot, and peel fruits and vegetables.

Remember the formula, Boil it, cook it, peel it, or leave it.

Sea food precautions, be sure to cook shellfish (like crabs and crayfish) until they are very hot all the way through.

Wash children, diapers, and clothes at least 30 meters away from drinking water sources.

I am having menstrual problem, my age is 30. Starting cycle onwards I am having irregular periods I am not having thyroid, scan report is normal, when I got meprate only my periods will start. What I can do for my regular periods. Please explain me.

Immunisation Against Tetanus

It is seen that many people still think that tetanus is caused due to injuries by iron objects only. This is a gross misconception. Any injury, where there is a breach in continuity of skin, may it be by any object, thorn prick, animal bite, surgical trauma tetanus may be caused if the injury gets infected by tetanus spores. It is necessary to get complete immunisation by taking 2 doses at a 1-month interval, one booster after 1 year and then boosters every 5 years.
