No need to afraid. This is phimosis. Do not forcefully move it back otherwise paraphimosis stage will be troublesome. Get small 10 minute surgery done by a good surgeon. Its called circumcision. Till then put tap water from some ht above glans penis/ urethral opening, straight. If you masturbate, do some lubrication od glans so that lubricant enters inside skin and penis. This is in no way recommending routine masturbation.

You are suffering from dysmenorrhoea which should be initially treated with meftal spas three times a day during menses. If the pain is too severe and not controlled by medicines then you would benefit by getting ultrasound done which can find ovarian cyst or endometriosis or fibroids.

Lybrate-user, birth control pills taken for a long time, at times inhibits or delays the natural conception process. There can be many reasons for a delay in conception. Please rule out such causes like pcod, hormonal imbalance, uterine fibroids etc. With an ultrasound of the abdomen and complete hormonal assay. Though 8 months is not a very long period, but still these investigations should be carried out. Infertility can be treated excellently with homoeopathy. These medicines have no side effect and are extremely effective.

I feel sorry for you both that you have married at such early age - for whatever reason that is. You could have avoided pregnancy by using some method. Getting an abortion done is not good, after all it is a tender life that is growing inside you and a gift from nature- better let this pregnancy grow and avoid next by using some method.

The saying "A Person is what he eats" highlights the importance of diet in life. According to Ayurveda Diet plays a vital role in the maintenance of health as well as in the treatment of disease.
The three basic things required for maintaining health as per ayurveda classics are:
• Ahara (Proper Diet)
• Nidra (Proper sleep)
• Brahmacharya (continence)
Thus Diet is considered as the foremost factor for keeping oneself healthy. If diet is taken in proper manner it will maintain health and can even curb diseases but if taken in an improper way it may be the causative factor for disease as Mithya ahara (Improper diet) is said to be one of the causes for the occurrence of diseases in Ayurveda. Thus ayurveda has laid emphasis on taking proper diet and a lot of information about it is available in Ayurvedic classics. By adopting Ayurveda diet plans one can enjoy a healthy body, mind and soul. This section will deal with the various aspects of diet as per Ayurveda.

The Importance of Six Tastes in Ayurvedic Diet :

Ayurveda recognizes six tastes and it's quite important to have all of these 6 tastes in your diet every day. The six tastes are:
Sweet sugar, honey, rice, pasta, milk, etc.
Sour lemons, hard cheese, yogurt, vinegar, etc.
Salty salt, any salty food.
Pungent chili peppers, cayenne, ginger, any hot spice.
Bitter leafy greens, turmeric, lettuce, etc.
Astringent pomegranate, beans, lentils, etc.


These six tastes are listed in the order they are digested in your body.Sweet gets digested first, that's why it's not a good idea to have a dessert at the end of the meal. Salad should be taken at the end of the meal.Cravings are often caused by not having all of the six tastes in your daily diet. Many people often omit the bitter and astringent tastes.When you have something bitter or astringent at the end of a meal, it actually reduces your desire for sweets.

Oats vs Cornflakes - What should you start your day with?

Oats vs. Cornflakes - What should you start your day with?

Oats and cornflakes are both considered to be ideal breakfast options due to their ability to boost your energy levels and keep you full for long hours. But which one of them is the healthier choice? Let’s have a look at their nutritional values so that you can decide which of them to have for breakfast daily.

1. Calorie content
Oatmeal has low calorie content, which amounts to be about 68 calories per 100 gm serving. Comparatively, 100 gm cornflakes contain about 357 calories. So, if you plan to keep your calorie consumption to a minimum, opt for oatmeal.

2. Fibre content
Cornflakes have the upper hand here. 100 gm of cornflakes contain about 3.3 gm dietary fibre in comparison to 1.7 gm fibre present in the same amount of oats. Dietary fibre is beneficial for your body as it lowers the level of bad cholesterol, regulates blood-sugar and aids proper bowel movements.

3. Vitamin A content
Cornflakes are rich sources of vitamin A, containing about 1786 IU per 100 gm serving. This makes it a better choice as a daily dose of vitamin A in ample amount improves your vision, helps in bone growth and boosts your immunity. On the other hand, 433 IU of vitamin A is present in 100 gm oats.

4. Fat content
Both cornflakes and oats are low in fat content with 100 gm of cornflakes having 0.4 gm fat and the same quantity of oats having 1.4 gm fat.

The scales are tipped more or less equally in favour of both cornflakes and oatmeal, and you can have either or both of them for breakfast.
