Yesterday I visited sex worker and during the act two condoms got bursted. Although ejaculation didn't happened, but since today morning one reddish spot is seen on the head of my genitalia. Although there is neither itching nor soaring. Kindly suggest any action to be taken.

No no, dear lybrate-user at all. Only it may be due to allergy to condom, else or fungal infection. Sexually trasnmitted chances are not there.

Garlic for Sexual Health and Stamina

Graduate in Ayurvedic Medicine and Surgery ( GAMS )
Sexologist, Delhi
Garlic for Sexual Health and  Stamina

Garlic can do wonders to your libido. Garlic has always been seen as a miracle herb that heals body organs. It normalizes the blood flow especially towards the penis. Many ancient civilizations have used garlic to increase and heal the sexuality. I have personally tried garlic and can vouch for its powers. It is not only good for vitality and little jhony it is also great for your general health.

How to Use:

You can eat three to four garlic cloves daily for a if you are having difficulty getting an erection. You can cut that down to three times a week after a month. that is if you start feeling better down there. you can also use grated garlic in your meat to get the desired result but raw garlic cloves work much better. Your breath will be awful but I am sure your partner won’t complain after your performance in bed.

Increasing the effectiveness:

In order to increase the effectiveness of the treatment you should cut down on the trans-fat. This will not only help you get in better shape but also will help your boom, boom to go zoom zoom.

Hello- Vaginal swelling is surely due to missed periods. Period load is affecting your genitals. If you do not have any irregularity in your periods before it is possible that you might be pregnant, if have a history of irregularity before too thn it must be due PCOD. Treatment schedule differs in both situations.

That's nice there's no problem. Simple aartav shuddhi procedure of ayurveda with medicinal herbs like ashoka, rodhra, daruhaldi, neem antarchhal and many others with some mineral preparations based on kasis, louh, mandoor etc have the capability of restoring normal functions in females. It's slow being pure n natural products but effect sustains without any side effects. The effect is visible in first month itself but recommended for use for at least 2-3 months. It will bring glow, normalise hormonal balance (through it's not hormonal medicine), relieve stress and anaemia and bring overall strength. Libido is also increased by default. It's the power of ayurveda

Please do not worry àbout your baby's position at this phase of your pregnancy as baby has to move to and fro in the water bag. We want baby to move and be active and baby would keep changing its position till eight months andmost of the time by eight and half months baby takes up the final position. So please relax. Your Sonography report is absolutely fine. Enjoy your pregnancy.

A slight pain started in her back on 11/08/2016. We rushed to hospital. After 3 hours we had a still born baby. He was our first baby, a boy. We are very upset. The weight of the child was 3.5 kg. We want to know the reason of death of my baby.

THE AMNIOTIC FLUID PLAYS A DIFFERENT ROLE IN PREGNANCY. IT ABSORBS SHOCK, IT LUBRICATED THE BABY AND GETS THE EXCRETION OF THE BABY OUT. IF THE WATER HAS BROKEN WE USUALLY GIVE STERIODS AND THEN INDUCE LABOUR AFTER 48 HOURS. IF THE WATER HAS BROKEN IT MEANS THAT INFECTION IN GOING TO GO IN. ALSO WATER BROKE THAT MEANS THE BABY IS GOING TO SWALLOW ITS OWN EXCRETA. I DONT UNDERSTAND WHY WASNT YOUR LABOUR INDUCED OR WHY WERENT U SUGGESTED ABOUT CEASEREAN SECTION.

But if you are not sexually active and your menstrual cycle is alo normal then what was the need to take those pills. Actually these are the hormonal pills and your body reacted to these external hormones and thatswhy prolonged bleeding till 5th jan. So you will be experiencing disturbed next periods anywhere between 5-10 feb. So just wait for 2-4 dayss.

We are about to ruin sex for you

We are about to ruin sex for you

Sex is not all sunshine and rainbows. There are real risks you ought to know about.

We all know there are dozens of benefits that come with having regular sex. Makes you wonder if there are any disadvantages, right?

Sex sure has side effects, so you might want to look out for these signs that tell you to cut down on sexual trysts.

1. Back pain:

Harming your back is a very common side effect of sex, especially if you are experimenting with new positions which you are not very comfortable with. If either of you is suffering from a back condition, make sure you place a pillow under your hip while having sex. Make sure that the positions you try do not affect your back a lot.

2. Infection:

All men carry bacteria on their penis, and they need to make sure that they following a healthy genital hygiene to avoid transmitting these bacteria in women. Men must regularly retract the foreskin and clean the smegma (a combination of shed skin cells, skin oils, and moisture), especially before the sexual act

3. Fatigue:

Sometimes, sex can get so good that it drains you out completely. So much that you wake up feeling tired and exhausted. If you're going for an interview or if you have important things planned for a particular day, sex can mess it up for you.

4. Penile fracture:

If you are not having sex properly, sometimes, by accident, you can cause a penile fracture. There are claims that it happens because of the woman-on-top position.

5. Psychological problems:

Sometimes, if you are not able to satisfy your partner or if you are cheating on your spouse, you tend to get depressed or anxious in a while. A lot of people even go through a low self-esteem if they are not able to satisfy their partner or if the partner refuses to spice up the sex life due to various reasons

Diet in Diabetes a commonly asked Question ?

Diet in Diabetes a commonly asked Question ?
Dear friends, a proper measure for knowing and managing your diabetes will be to ensure a hba1c below 6.5%. Regarding diet, we indians have high carbohydrate diet. You have to closely observe your plate and you can come up with a better diet plan for yourself. To simplify it, identify the items which are carb rich in your plate and try to compensate the same with protein and fibres, for eg cut down a roti and increase sabji, dal or salad. To have a better control you can do a monthly self glucose monitoring 3 times a day and keep a track of the food with it. Check fasting sugar, sugar one hour prior to lunch and 2 hrs post lunch, and note down the details of her breakfast and lunch items. Modify as per my earlier suggestions and within a week you will see your blood sugar level responding. Keep a regular exercise schedule, around 45 mins walk would also do. Best of luck.
Please note self glucose monitoring and diet control is the only way to manage diabetes.

Managing periods

Homeopath, Navi Mumbai
Managing periods
Hello,
During menstruation, women can get more stressed out and suffer from uncomfortable symptoms such as fatigue, mood swings, breast tenderness, bloating, cramps, headache, food cravings and constipation or diarrhea.
By eating the right foods and avoiding the wrong foods can help reduce stress and lethargic and stay bright and breezy.
Avoiding certain foods during your period may help discomfort.-----
Beverages: restrict consumption of beverages such as coffee, tea and soft drinks which worsen symptoms like anxiety, depression and breast tenderness. Instead have herbal tea and plenty of water to keep body hydrated.
Salt: controlling salt consumption can help you avoid bloating and the puffy, heavy feeling that comes with it.
High-fat foods: hormone changes during the menstrual cycle shows symptoms such as bloating and breast tenderness. Avoid foods such as whole-milk dairy products, sausages, burgers, cheese.
Sugary foods: due to hormonal changes during menstruation, blood sugar levels become unstable, and many women crave sweets. Eating foods high in sugar adds to your blood sugar fluctuations resulting in mood swings, tension, lethargic, immune system imbalance and fatigue.
Recommended foods during periods:-----
Beans: the high fiber content in beans helps reduce congestion, cramps, constipation and diarrhea.
Vegetables: green vegetables are rich in calcium, magnesium and potassium and thus help prevent menstrual pains, excessive bleeding and clot the blood.
Water: water retention is one of the main causes for cramps. To reduce water retention, drink enough water.
Whole grains: eating small amounts of carbohydrates every three hours and before bed can help combat premenstrual syndrome and also reduces neuromuscular tension, fatigue and depression.
Yogurt: yogurt contains live cultures and active bacteria which promote healthy digestion and also a good source of calcium.
Take care.
