I had sex with a girl on 8 april while last she had period on 5-6, and I haven't used condom while intercourse. Is there any chances of pregnancy.

Practising safe days for sex is highly reliable and has high failure rate as sperms can live upto 7 days. If she was in menses then she can not get pregnant, but for the safer side you should give her ipill asap as menses must have been very less by the time you had sex.

If you want sterilization, there are 3 methods. 1. Open abdominal surgery. 2. Sterilization thro vaginal route. 3. Sterilization by laparoscopy. Usually these surgery requires very small incision. So you need not worry. Otherwise you go for laparoscopy surgery, still smaller incision but a bit costlier.

Hello, you should wait for at least 2 weeks to allow your menses to resume and repeat the urine pregnancy test again after 5 days which if negative shall rule out pregnancy. A urine pregnancy test is sensitive only after 8 days post missed periods.

If she had regular cycles for last 6 months, and is expecting her cycle tomorrow, it is unlikely she can get pregnant today. It would be extremely rare if she got pregnant due to chance delay in ovulation in this cycle. If she is already on medicines to postpone periods she should stop it after 2-3 days.

I am a very exercise loving person. I alternatively run and do jumprope. Is it okay to do such exercise during periods?

No any physical exertion during menses should be completely stopped n exercise is a strict no. Take rest as much as you can take. Exercising during menses will cause irregularity of menses, scanty menses etc. In the long run.

Severe Pain During Sex - Know the Reasons Behind it

MBBS, DPM, DNB (Psychiatry)
Sexologist, Mumbai
Severe Pain During Sex - Know the Reasons Behind it

Severe pain during intercourse causes difficulty in a relationship in both partners. Sometimes a sustained occurrence of pain might be an indication of some serious medical dysfunction. As such, consult a doctor as soon as the pain arises. Contrary to popular beliefs, sexual pain can occur in both male and female.

In female, the reasons behind the painful sexual intercourse might be:

  1. Vaginismus, a condition when the vaginal muscles tighten up mainly due to anxiety or fear and causes significant pain with a tearing sensation.

  2. The pain can arise due to vaginal infection due to yeast or any form of sexually transmitted disease or pelvic inflammatory diseases.

  3. A severe injury in the vagina during childbirth or any other accident and psychological stress can also cause severe pain during sex.

  4. Sometimes, uterine or menopause problems (formation of fibroids in the uterus) can also cause pain.

  5. Cyst formation in the ovary or endometriosis (when the inner tissue lining of the uterus tends to grow outside) can also cause severe pain during intercourse.

Among men:

  1. Some men can experience pain during intercourse because of allergy to the fluids of the vagina or the chemical content of certain contraceptives.

  2. You can experience pain because of undiagnosed sexually transmitted diseases like herpes or gonorrhea

  3. The pain might also occur due to urinary tract infections or side effects from certain medications.

  4. Severe pain just a few moments before ejaculation can be a result of inflammation of the prostate glands and should be immediately diagnosed as it might be a signal of prostate cancer.

For treating pain during sex in female, you should opt for the following procedures

  1. If the pain is caused due to vaginal dryness after menopause, you should consider the application of prescribed lubricants or jellies to reduce the pain.

  2. If the pain occurs due to severe anxiety or stress, sex therapy can help you improve physical intimacy.

  3. If there are other symptoms like severe bleeding or irregular periods in addition to the pain, a visit to the physician is recommended.

Quite similarly in men

  1. If the pain occurs due to severe anxiety or stress, sex therapy can help you improve physical intimacy.

  2. If the pain results from side effects of certain medications, you should try changing your prescribed medication after doctor’s suggestion.

  3. In extreme cases, the doctors might suggest hormone replacement surgery.

Is it a fact that a lady shouldn't bath during her 1st three days of periods? is it harmful?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Is it a fact that a lady shouldn't bath during her 1st three days of periods? is it harmful?
Hello. I am really surprised to hear this thing from you! No, not at all! It's not harmful dear!! It is a general awareness that we should always maintain our personal hygiene whether in normal days or during the menses. As the chances of getting any vaginal infection becomes high during menstruation. So, better take extra hygiene and precautions during this time! And please spread this general awareness among all other females also and guide them properly.. Take Care.

Yes she has to take bath during menses. Not taking bath will increase the chance of getting infection in and around vagina. This is a myth. People used to take bath in rivers which were public places and bathing during periods would have caused embarrassment for women and uneasiness for others.

Should I and my partner go to blood test before having sex? Because this will make us aware about transmitted diseases. Ex:- HIV. Is this right? And any other alternate option that will give 100% security for having Sex with partner.

Hiv is not the only sexually transmitted disease, there are many others, get the whole std screen as well as check for blood groups and thalessemia traits if you are looking forward to have a long term relationship or tying the knot.
