Acne is a chronic inflammatory skin disease that occurs in the form of spots, blackheads, whiteheads, cysts, nodules, papules, pustules and pimples on the face, shoulders, neck, chest, upper arms and the back. The clogging of skin pores by bacteria, oil and dead skin cells causes it. Acne occurs during puberty during the activation of the sebaceous glands that produce oil when stimulated by the male hormones produced by the adrenal glands in both sexes. Acne is mainly caused by genetics, anxiety, menstrual cycle in females, stress, humid climate, squeezing pimples and use of makeup.
Hormonal changes in the body influence the development of acne. This is caused by the increase of the androgen levels in the body. Androgen is a type of hormone that mainly occurs in increasing quantities among teenagers. It is also produced in large quantities in obese women where it gets converted into estrogen. Increase in the androgen levels causes the growth of oil glands that are underneath the skin. The grown glands produce more sebum that breaks down cellular walls in the pores facilitating the growth of bacteria that cause acne. Hormonal acne normally occurs around the mouth, jawline and the chin before spreading to the face and other parts of the body.
Most research on the link between acne and diet is inconclusive. However, there is an indication that diet partly influences the development of acne on the skin. Diet comprising of processed foods such as refined grains have a high glycemic index hence causes acne on the skin. This is because refined carbohydrates are quickly broken down to sugar causing an increase in the insulin levels which in turn increases sebum production that blocks skin pores.
Seek Help From Your Gynaecologist
Many people get acne because of hormonal imbalance in their body. Therefore, it is necessary to seek a gynaecologist to establish the cause of your acne. Gynaecologists say that testosterone increase in the body causes an increase in sebum that leads to acne Gynaecologist, therefore, can prescribe a medicine that will help to reduce the testosterone levels and maintain the estrogen levels keeping your skin smooth and healthy.

In medical terms, the pelvic floor refers to a group of muscles in the pelvic area. These muscles provide support to the organs in the pelvic region, including the bladder, uterus (women), prostate (men) and rectum.
What is pelvic floor dysfunction?
This is a medical condition that is used to refer to a situation when you are unable to control the functioning of the pelvic floor. It means you fail to control the bowel movement. People suffering from pelvic floor dysfunction use these muscles to contract rather than to relax. It is for this reason that they cannot have a bowel movement. They often have an incomplete one.
What causes pelvic floor dysfunction?
In most of the cases, the exact reason behind this dysfunction is unknown. It is often believed that this condition is caused due to traumatic injuries to the pelvic area. This can happen after an accident and due to complications aroused after vaginal childbirth.
What are the symptoms?
There are several symptoms that are linked to this medical condition. You must visit your doctor if you come across the following signs:
- The feel of having several bowel movements within a short period of time.
- If you feel that you cannot complete a bowel movement.
- When there is constipation pain linked with bowel movements.
- A frequent urge to urinate.
- Painful urination.
- Pain in lower back.
- Continuous pain in pelvic region, genitals, or rectum.
- Pain during intercourse in women
How is pelvic floor dysfunction diagnosed?
It may be diagnosed through a physical examination by the doctor. You will ask several questions to know the case history and find out the cause. You may also be asked to take pelvic muscle control test by placing surface electrodes on the perineum or sacrum. A small device called a perineometer is also used for the same.
What are the best ways for treating pelvic floor dysfunction?
It can be treated without surgery. There are several techniques. Some of these are as follows:
- Biofeedback: It is done with the help of a physical therapist.He uses special sensors to watch and monitor the muscles.
- Medication: A low-dose muscle relaxant is prescribed to treat the same.
- Relaxation techniques: Your therapist may ask you to take up techniques for relaxation such as warm baths, yoga, and exercises.
- Surgery: If your physician finds out that the dysfunction is caused by a rectal prolapse or rectocele, he or she will take up surgery.
Pelvic Floor Dysfunction results in Urinary Dysfunction. Urinary incontinence is the unintentional passing of urine. It's a common problem thought to affect millions of people. There are several types of urinary incontinence, including:
- Stress Incontinence – when urine leaks out at times when your bladder is under pressure; for example, when you cough or laugh
- Urge Incontinence – when urine leaks as you feel a sudden, intense urge to pass urine, or soon afterwards
- Overflow Incontinence (chronic urinary retention) – when you're unable to fully empty your bladder, which causes frequent leaking
- Total Incontinence – when your bladder can't store any urine at all, which causes you to pass urine constantly or have frequent leaking
It's also possible to have a mixture of both stress and urge urinary incontinence.
Pelvic Organ Prolapse
Pelvic organ prolapse is a condition in which structures such as the uterus, rectum, bladder, urethra, small bowel, or the vagina itself may begin to prolapse, or fall, out of their normal positions. Without medical treatment or surgery, these structures may eventually fall farther into the vagina or even through the vaginal opening if their supports weaken enough. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an urologist and ask a free question.
I have problem in my vulva region since 8 months. I have visited almost 5 gynecologists in this time period. It has scaly texture and whenever I pee the area around it burns. I am not having uti nor am I having sugar. My menstrual cycle is fine though flow has reduced. Sometimes I think I have skin issues but then I'm not sure about whom should I visit? Gynecologist or dermatologist? I'm really stressed because its becoming unbearable now. My sex life is ruined too. Whenever I have sex it becomes worse. At first I thought that I'm allergic to latex condoms so I opted for non latex ones (skyn kamasutra ). But it won't stop it's pretty bad. Help mee.
With the ever widening spectrum of definitions attached to gender and sexuality, we acquaint ourselves with an enormous range of gender notions and understandings pertaining to sexuality. Gone are the days of the water-tight polarities of male and female bodies and their mutual attractions. The society is by and large opening up to the possibility of sexual attractions besides and beyond the normative bounds of heterosexuality. Or so we hope. One of the most significant struggles of contemporary times is the quest for acceptance and acknowledgement of queer identities and breaking all the discriminatory stigmas attached to them thus. While one cannot really be inveigled into advocating one form of sexuality over the other, the main argument of the movement is to allow anyone and everyone to freely express and exercise their sexual affinities and identities beyond the restrictions of sex, gender, class, caste, race or any such constructed categories. Amidst the struggle for championing the cause of free love, there are certain nuances about one's sexuality that have emerged as discrete identities within the larger understanding of the LGBTQ movement.
Among the others, Pansexuality is relatively a more incipient concept.
Unlike bisexuality which conforms to the conventional gender definitions, i.e male and female and professes attraction to both or either, pansexuality is a more inclusive expression of sexuality wherein one feels attracted anyone, irrespective of one's sex or gender identity. Pansexuality vouches for strong sexual feelings for those who may not identify with a specific gender and consequently, includes transgender and transsexuals within its purview.
A pansexual is never inhibited or restricted by a person's gender or sex. Initially coined by Sigmund Freud to describe the basis of human interactions in purely sociological terms, the term was later adopted by the LGBTQ activities to describe the group of people whose sexual predispositions were not delineated by gender constructs. For a pansexual, there is a lurking and consistent possibility of getting attracted to anybody at any given situation. Numerous celebrities like Laci Green and Miley Cyrus are explicitly pansexual.
However, the pansexual community is constantly plagued by myriad indignities and disgraces. Many have labelled them debauch and promiscuous while others try to sympathize with them perceiving them as led awry and confused. In fact one of the major misconception with regard to pansexuality is that it is synonymous to bisexuality. Yet others deride this claim by stating that it is merely a modern fad with not genuine basis.
Like it or not, pansexuality is a reality, relevant to a lot of our lives. In fact, it secularizes love to an unprecedented extent and really lets nothing come in the way. In a world strewn with hostility, hatred and violence, if a sizeable number wishes to advocate indiscriminate and unhindered love, it surely bodes happiness for all. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Sexologist.
