I am about 29years old and my gf is about 24 years old we had unprotected Sex on 14th of April. I completely penetrated inside her. Just want to what are chances of she getting pregnant. WE have had this kind of encounters before but nothing has gone so far. Kindly advise.

Missing the next scheduled period is the first sign of pregnancy. If your fiend misses her scheduled period, go for a urine pregnancy test, of its negative, just relax and wait for periods to come. If it's positive and you both do not wish to continue the pregnancy consult a gynecologist with the tests reports.

Suffering From Cold? Try These Remedies!!

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
Suffering From Cold? Try These Remedies!!

Common cold can be defined as a viral infection affecting one’s upper respiratory tract (throat and nose) characterized by mild fever, sneezing, body aches and headaches, congestion, cough, sore throat, runny nose and a general feeling of being unwell. It takes around 10 days to recover completely from the sickness. Although there is no treatment as such for common cold, however, few remedies might ease the symptoms.

  1. Stay Hydrated: Lemon and honey mixed with lukewarm water, in addition to clear chicken broth, works therapeutically on congestion or dehydration. However, refrain from caffeinated sodas, coffee and alcohol; beverages that can aggravate dehydration.

  2. Rest: Your body requires time to heal. Therefore, sufficient rest should be the utmost priority.

  3. Soothe your Sore Throat: A saltwater gargle early in the morning can bring great relief for your throat. Hard candy, lozenges and sore throat sprays can be used as alternatives if you cannot gargle properly.

  4. Sip on Something Warm: Nothing feels better than a hot clear chicken soup when you are down with fever. It works wonderfully on the sore throat. Other warm beverages such as tea or a cup of warm clove juice helps to improve nose and throat congestion by easing the mucous flow.

  5. Take Medications: Pain relievers, antihistamines (drugs to treat allergies) and decongestants might contribute to some relief. Nevertheless, these over-the-counter medicines cannot prevent or cure cold entirely.

What not to consider as remedies?

  1. Antibiotics: Antibiotics help fight bacterial infections and are hence, not as effective against viral infections, the main contributor towards common cold.

  2. Cold medications for children below 6: Over-the-counter drugs may have life-threatening consequences for children below the age of 6. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Hi, This is sex related question. Me and my girlfriend want to have sex. We fortunately got the time for it. We Both are virgin. The problem is her periods can start any day, last time it was 25th of march. So the question is, if we have sex, then does she feel pain more than normal. Is it safe to have sex just before the periods. Please give me suggestion. Thanks for your time.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist,
First time sex is sometimes painful especially for the female. If you both want to have sex and are worried about menses, do not worry. If she is about to have menses, then probably it is a safe time to have sex. Nevertheless, it is always better to use condoms while having sex, as it protects the girl and boy from other diseases which could be transmitted at sex. If she is aroused, she will have enough lubrication, but since it is a first time for both of you, you can use lubricant to halp smoother penetration and it will also reduce pain for her. Ask her to apply water based lubricant to the private parts and then you can use the same on your condomed penis before entering her. This will reduce the pain and being slow and steady will help the process of entry. Avoid forceful entry alsoa sk your gf to exhale repeatedly through the mouth while you are attenpting penetration. This will ease her muscles around the vagina and facilitate penetration.

Hi lybrate-user. Stop eating all types of sugars and carbs. Have frequent small meals rather than having full big meals. Eat lots of fresh vegetables and fruits. Do not eat only sweet fruits like banana, custard apple etc.

MBBS, cc USG
General Physician, Gurgaon
If symptoms are sneezing, running nose, blocked nose 1. Take proper rest/ lot of fluids 2. Take proper home made diet. 3. Steam inhalation carefully by steam inhaler twice a day for 2-3 days frequent/ continuous cough cold may be because of many reasons like: 1. Any ent problem like dns polyp sinusitis 2. Low immunity 3. Allergic condition There are some supplement available that can be start after personal consultation and these supplement can reduce severity and no. of episodes of this problem so you need to consult ENT doctor for proper examination and further management

Masturbation is normal and does not cause physical problems or sexual problems, but you should not overdo it. If you want to reduce it, you should involve yourself in studies, games and hobbies. Also try not to remain alone most of time and avoid porn.

Impetigo - How Homeopathy Can Help?

MD, BHMS
Homeopath, Mumbai
Impetigo - How Homeopathy Can Help?

Impetigo is one of the most contagious skin infections that affects young children and in rare cases, adults. This rash can usually be seen on the face, neck and hands of children between the ages of 2 and 6 and in the groin area in the case of diaper wearing infants. This infection is not life threatening and is usually resolved within two or three weeks.

Homeopathy can be easily used to treat this condition. Homeopathy is a holistic form of treatment that has negligible side effects. This makes it an ideal form of treatment for infections that affect children. However, before any form of homeopathic medication can be prescribed for impetigo, it is essential to understand the causes and symptoms of this disease.

This condition can be triggered by the effects of two types of bacteria; bacteria-strep (streptococcus pyogenes) and staph (staphylococcus aureus). This is important to note as the form of treatment depends on the type of bacteria that triggered the condition. In most cases, bacteria infects the body through an open wound or irritated skin that has been affected by eczema, insect bites etc. Bacteria can also affect the skin under a child’s nose that is raw due to a cold or allergies. However, sometimes, it can also affect healthy skin.

The infection can spread from one child to another through close contact or by sharing clothing, towels, sheets, toys etc. This puts children attending day care at a high risk of contacting this infection. Other factors that can raise the risk of suffering from impetigo are diabetes, poor hygiene, dermatitis, warm and humid weather and low immunity. Children who participate in contact sports such as football are also at a high risk of contacting this infection.

Open sores are the most noticeable symptom of this condition. These sores begin as small red spots on the skin that may be as small as a pimple or as large as a coin. With time, they gradually develop into fluid filled blisters. These blisters either burst on their own to form open sores or are created when children scratch them. Once open, these sores ooze for a few days before forming a yellowish crust.

Though these sores are not painful, they are very itchy. By scratching the sores, they can spread form one part of the body to another and increase in size. The longer this disease is left untreated, the higher the chances of scarring and hence it is essential to consult a doctor as soon as you start noticing any of its symptoms.

My sugar is suddenly increased without eating any sweet things. It is 145 and 256. Before this it was 114 and 145. What is the reason? And I am doing regular exercise of walking for 1 hour.

Smoking has been always associated with gastritis. So I would recomend you to quit smoking as you atr smoking only 4 cigrattes a day so quittung should be very easy for you. Other than this what you can do is change your dietry habits. Eat food which will make your stool soft in nature like lots of salads. You can eat apple which will also help you a lot and drink plenty of water. This is the natural ways you should can try. But I can precribe you medicine only after there is no improvement with the above.

It is normal for nocturnal penile erection. For many men penis is curved, its also normal variant only. It will give more pleasure to the lady, if you know how to use the curvature. All the best. Also masturbation is normal, do not feel guilty. Masturbation is a very healthy form of sexual outlet, do not feel guilty about it. Nearly 99% of men and more than 60% of women masturbate. It starts from adolescence and goes on in some people even till death. The pleasure (orgasm) from masturbation is said to be unique from sexual intercourse. In men, most of the liquid contains only water and some fructose and hormones. Hence it does not drain your energy. Many equate masturbation/ seminal fluid loss to lack of energy, impotency and so on. Many quacks, religious heads and pseudo healers also propagate the idea that masturbation is a disorder/ and wrongful behavior and instill fear on the mind of innocent men and women (we can see posters in train and bus stand, offering help for this behavior). Consult a psychiatrist, if you have excessive masturbation guilt or compulsive masturbation. Compulsive masturbation is when a person continues with frequent masturbation neglecting his/ her other work like education, job or social obligations. In fact masturbation reduces the sexual tension and helps focus on task at hand better.

You can try a home therapy to boost your sexual performance. Soak 4-5 dry dates (khurma khajur) in a cup of lukewarm milk before going to bed daily. On waking up next morning eat those soaked dry dates & discard the milk. Repeat the process daily. This therapy often gives effective result within 15 days.
