Sexual Health - How Internet Based Knowledge and Experiments Affect It?

Sexual Health - How Internet Based Knowledge and Experiments Affect It?

The Internet has glorified our lives in numerous ways, but at the same time, too much of information available online has also become very appalling in certain cases. One of the main scenarios that have borne the brunt of information overload is sexual health. Now-a-days, the adolescents or the teenagers have become very much vulnerable to increasing sexual risks owing to exposure to excessive online information.
Sexual Studies: The eternal curiosity about sexuality amongst the humans along with the unnecessary stigmas or taboos related to these have together led to a severe situation where people are resorting to a wrong form of information by misusing the internet.

How are the teenagers affected?
This has mounted up, especially amongst the teenagers because this is the transitional stage of a child to an adult where one goes through the maximum hormonal changes in the body. These hormones affect the metabolism and development of sexual maturity in those who are passing through this sensitive stage of puberty.

The superficial study of biological sciences and the changes felt by the adolescents have compelled them to dig more about sexuality by making use of the wonder weapon today, the internet. However, the social and other digital media contain sexual contents and information in a distorted manner and this has proved to be extremely pernicious in the following ways:

  1. Pre-marital and unsafe sex.
  2. Increase of sexually transmitted infections.
  3. The most alarming effect of all is the accelerated amount of crimes related to maliciously-oriented sexual attitudes and behaviours such as eve-teasing, molestation, rapes, child abuse, sexual harassment, etc.
  4. Unhealthy tendency of masturbation amongst the males.
  5. A healthy post-marriage sexual life is getting badly affected.

Studies have shown the present social media is flooded with illicit sexual content to the extent of almost 80% in the movies and 60% in the videos that are creating a severe psychological impact on everyone, irrespective of the gender. This is reaching to such an extent that sometimes they are getting addicted to watching these that is undermining their overall mental health.

Probable remedies: Now-a-days, various sexual awareness programmes are coming up and sexual orientation programme is becoming a part of the course curriculum in schools as well. Yet, unless and until the hush-hush mentality of the society regarding this particular aspect decreases, there will not be a significant change. There is always hope at the end of a dark tunnel and anybody who feels disturbed due to these issues can always consult and take help of the psychiatrists and sexologists who can handle such issues with the utmost consideration and under strict confidentiality.

However, one needs to open up completely before them or else, the treatment or counselling, whichever is applicable, will not be fulfilled in a proper manner. One has to break the boundaries, get enlightened, confront the facts and in turn, lead a healthier sexual life. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Sexologist.

34 weeks baby is premature, needs an incubator to keep warm & avoid infection, feeding by tube and medicines to improve lung fungtions including oxygen to be given under special care. 40 weeks + is healthy baby and needs no artificial care unless some specific defects are detected at birth. 36 weeks baby is mature, 4 weeks time is given by nature, means 36-40 weeks is normal. Beyond 40 weeks we wait for 10 days before induction is done to deliver baby with the help of medicines.

Why do some people call it Polycystic Ovarian Disease and others call it Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hi. A syndrome is a set of medical signs and symptoms that are correlated with each other. A disease is a particular abnormal condition, a disorder of a structure or function, that affects part or all of an organism. Disease is often construed as a medical condition associated with specific symptoms and signs. So, we can call by either of them PCOS or PCOD!

Tablets alone will not help you. Get investigation done for basics like ultrasound after ten days for maturity of eggs semen test must have been done if not, get it done treatment is holistic and yoga and meditation are as important to keep tubes open to receive mature eggs around 14 th day of cycle.

Did you have unprotected sex only once, if yes then you most probably are not pregnant. Go to a gynecologist or do an ultrasound. You can even do the blood test for pregnancy, very rarely in pregnancy the pregnancy test can be negative. Go to the doctor and take medicine for having periods or else you will unnecessarily be under stress.

Consult a gynecologist for further testing because urine pregnancy test could be false positive due to some drugs you might have taken before. Get a ultrasound done and consult your gynecologist if you wanted to continue the pregnancy or wanted to abort it if you get your pregnancy positive.

Dear doctor. I am working in Gulf. I will mention my case. I am in my early forties and I have a son. My husband died many years ago. My son is 22. We love each other very much. One night while we were both drunk, I allowed him to have sex with me which happened because of my foolishness of not stopping him and it continued 3 times the same night. I was unconcerned about contraception at that time and as a result, I got pregnant. I kept silent and went to a doctor who gave me pills called misoprostol. I had abortion and my son didn't know. After a couple of months my son and me started having sex again and once during an intimate moment, I told my son that I got pregnant once from him and went for abortion. He couldn't bear the sorrow and I too felt guilty and sorrowful. He started seeing baby pictures and started talking about babies to me. Eventually I got attracted and now we both intentionally want a baby and is trying for the same. What are the pre-pregnancy precautions that we have to consider. Also in terms of sex. Another question is, will I be able to satisfy my son as I get older especially after a few years, as menopause will be a reality My 10 year old daughter sleep with me at night in the next bed from mine. My son comes to my bed at night, Will she be able to understand if she see us making love. We always make sure it doesn't happen My son loves me as his mother very much. I feel very bad when he do clitoral licking as I am very much worried about my son's health. I talked with my friend who was in a similar relationship and who had safe deliverySo do I have a similar chance.

DearLybrater I see 2 issues 1. social acceptance both your friends and his friends. 2. age difference can show up later and just prepare for it..You can continue to enjoy sex even after menopause. you can become pregnant..but genitically not advised..
