Hello Dear,Periods occur when the egg formed during each menstrual cycle in the female body is not fertilized and hence ejected out of the reproductive system along with blood and several other tissue cells. The duration of each menstrual cycle is about 28 days Most women will experience their monthly period right from the time they are 13 to the time they are 50. For many women, their monthly period is nothing more than an annoyance; but other women may suffer some problems.

It is a person specific choice whether or not to rest after intercourse. Most people would enjoy a cuddle and snooze. Missionary position is the best to get pregnant but of the quality of sperms is good one can get pregnant in any position or any interval of intercourse.

Hellow, it's almost two months that she hasn't got periods. There is very rare possibility of getting pregnant even after tubectomy. please perform a urine pregnancy test to hv confirmation about the same. She is also suffering from ovarian cyst, which might delay periods. Consult your doctor for the same and get these investigations done. 1) CBC with ESR 2) HORMONAL PROFILE (FSH, LH, PROLACTINE, TESTOSTERONE) 3) THYROID PROFILE (T3, T4, TSH-ULTRA) 4) USG-FULL ABDOMEN.

How Your Diet Affects Your Overall Physical Health

How your diet affects your overall physical health

The fuel that runs all your bodily processes and enables you to do everything is food. Following the right diet and having correct eating habits can help in preventing as well as treating diseases that may affect you. On the other hand, poor dietary habits and food choices can have adverse long-term effects.

Food has a direct relationship to physical health. Here's how they are related:

- The nutrients that you get from a balanced and healthy diet keep your brain active, and your heart and muscles working. They also help in building your bones, muscles and tendons in addition to regulating body processes like blood pressure.

- It supplies you with energy so that you are able to carry out your daily activities with ease. From strength to coordination and agility to speed, your food is the source of power for all these levels of performance.

- Having a healthy diet ensures your body movements are executed with minimal effort. In contrast, a poor diet can make each of your body movement an effort that is filled with strain, stress and pain.

- The consumption of fruits and vegetables as well as whole grains enables you to function properly and not suffer from energy spikes and breakdowns that a carbohydrate and sugar-rich diet may bring about.

- Having foods that are high in trans fats such as cookies, pies, cakes or doughnuts and saturated fats such as red meat, butter or cheese alongside fatty meats puts you at risk of developing major health diseases that can affect your physical well-being.

- The consumption of foods that are rich in unsaturated fats such as fish, nuts and vegetable oils protects and restores your body.

- Eating a balanced diet ensures you don't end up putting on excess weight, thereby lowering your risk of acquiring diet-related ailments such as diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.

- Additionally, following a healthy diet plan also ensures you don't end up with eating disorders like bulimia, anorexia and binge-eating disorder that are detrimental to your physical health.

What is the Impact of Porn Addiction and Masturbation on Your Health?

DNB (Psychiatry), DPM, MBBS
Sexologist
Ask Free Question
After the advent of the internet, the availability of pornography or explicit video material has become widespread. The availability of this material resulted in a large section of the population relying on it for sexual pleasures as well as living their fantasies through the digital realm.

Internet porn is the new drug

The easy availability and the dependence on internet porn to get a quick fix of dopamine through sexual pleasure have resulted in patterns of addiction among many people. Porn addiction is a phenomenon which has been exacerbated by the easy availability of pornography on the internet. It has not only affected sexual habits such as masturbation, but has also caused hindrances in the daily lives of people and has become a mental disorder as well.

A brain on porn is similar to a brain on alcohol

While it may seem a bit far-fetched, studies of brain scans have shown that people watching porn experience the same effects or pleasure that alcohol gives them. It is a neural circuit which releases pleasure hormones when you sexually pleasure yourself by masturbating to porn. The reward circuit of the brain recognizes this pattern and starts creating please pathways where you want more of it. As you keep doing it more and more, the resistance level increases and you tend to need more. This is a classic sign of addiction.

Healthy and unhealthy masturbation

Masturbation is a natural and normal process that every human indulges in. However a brain addicted to porn will use it as an addict uses a substance. Masturbation is the physical act through which the dopamine would be released. Once it has become an addiction, you would either want to have the daily fix for at least a few hours which you would ensure to take out of your daily routine. This time could have been invested in other fruitful activities when it ends up going to the addiction. In some cases, studies have shown that many would rather do it a few times a week but would spend extended hours masturbating to porn.

Effects of excess masturbation

Some of effects of the porn addiction and excessive masturbation could be

Premature ejaculation

Erectile dysfunction when you are with a partner and in a real life scenario due to dependence on particular porn fantasies

Inability to have or form intimate relationships which are not just sexual but emotional and mental as well

Lethargy to go to work or school due to addiction related problems

Breakdown in relationships, even with family members and friends among many others

It is thus, imperative that you seek sexologist help to slow down the habit and break the cycle of addiction and ensure that you are able to lead a normal life without disruptions so as to allow yourself to be able to form normal sexual relationships.

Hello, Pregnancy is unlikely as she had her menses twice after the sexual episode, unless she is sexually active anyhow. But you may get a urine pregnancy test done to rule out pregnancy anyhow. If negative then the delay is stress induced.

There are many reasons of not having periods. Pregnancy test is negative. So, rest assured. Consult gynecologist to take drugs for artificial mens and at the same time, start treatment for not having mens by diagnosing the cause.
