It takes the essence of sixty drops of blood to make one drop of semen; furthermore, much subtle life energy (prana) is lost in sex life.� Then there is the danger of sexually transmitted diseases, which are extremely painful and nasty. What suggestion I am giving you is strong , harsh and annoying but is true and holistic approach for your overall well-being. If you sincerely follow my suggestions for six months , you would feel pure , fresh and healthier than now. The process which I am suggesting to you would make you feel happier , peaceful and satisfaction , because the process mentioned below is the king of education , the most secret of all secrets , it is the purest knowledge because it gives direct perception of self by realization , it is ever-lasting and joyfully performed.� Kindly remember that any illicit sex activity ( sex outside of marriage and other than that for producing children , for example masturbation or any type of recreational sex for pleasure only ) is very bad for your future. It spells trouble physically , mentally and for your real self. Even sex inside marriage but only for recreation or pleasure comes under illicit sex , and is one of the main causes of misery. So strictly avoid illicit sex activity. Lust is perverted form of Love. The misunderstanding that sex is gift of God is a false education and has to be corrected to prevent suffering. Most of academic schools , college do not help to get the correct information regarding this subject. So one has to endeavour with self discipline to seek out the Absolute Truth regarding safe sex from the most reliable source. How to avoid sex trouble? It is been proved by medical research that to overcome illicit sex desire , Mantra meditation helps amazingly well. Mantra meditation means to chant the Holy Names of God with "love and devotion". This has been validated by all bonafide sources ( from Vedas , Bible ) and it works. Try it. You have nothing to lose except your anxiety and bad habit.� This information is based on Vedic Literature which is the oldest manual known to mankind and thus the Absolute Truth. The information from the Vedic Scriptures applies to every one , of any age , gender , nationality. One risks suffering if one ignores the Vedic information. According to the Vedic Scripture , any illicit sex practice is a sinful activity. One may do many activities unknowingly due to lack of information , but one has to suffer for each sinful activity which one does. So this information from Vedic scriptures is compulsory to prevent a lot of suffering.� The Vedic Scripture tells "You have got this human form of life after many, many millions of years waiting." So do not misuse it. That is Vedic civilization, not to misuse the human form of life. Nature's law is very, very strict. This life, it is given, a chance. Nature gives a chance. Now you get this human form of life, advanced consciousness. Now you make further improvement. That is wanted. From here we can make further improvement." - SB 11.9.29 Purport Sex binds one to bodily consciousness and thus takes one away from realizing one's real self within the body. For every pleasure which one derives from illicit sex , one risks equal amount of pain or suffering in future.� The Vedic literature indicates that , to the extent that a person becomes interested in sex, that much he loses all good qualities. For from lust develop all other bad qualities such as greed, personal ambition, hatred, and cruelty. ?Sex life is the background of material existence. Demons are very fond of sex life. The more one is freed from the desire for sex, the more he is promoted to the level of the demigods; the more one is inclined to enjoy sex, the more he is degraded to the level of demonic life.? (SB 3.20.23) Illicit sex causes unwanted pregnancy , sexually transmitted diseases like syphilis , gonorrhoea. To keep women for sex life , one has to beg ,borrow,steal and commit many abominable activities which causes one to suffer a lot.� The pain or suffering which comes as a reaction , can happen either immediately or even after months or years just as a seed fructifies to give fruits in future. So even if one feels fine currently , one should not ignore and keep repeating illicit sex activities. For example, we see in newspaper persons getting arrested or getting punishment years after they commit wrong. The law of nature acts to punish for misdeeds. But if you sincerely follow the above suggestion to stop these activities , you can get mercy and the reactions of your acts can get minimized or even nullified. So make your mind from today to stop the illicit sex activity as per the suggestion mentioned above.

Calcium rich foods - broccoli, yoghurt, cabbage, and milk - should be consumed in higher quantities as they naturally fight muscle spasms and also lessen the pain caused by cramps during menstruation.

Sexual Communication - Why is it Important for Couples?

MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology, DGO, MBBS, MCPS
Gynaecologist
Ask Free Question
Communication in any relationship is indispensable for creating a strong bond between a couple and a part of that communication is communicating about your desires and fantasies.

Sexual Communication is when you and your partner are able to express your needs and wants without the conversation being awkward, taking in account what the other feels. It is a fulfilling, satisfying, and a fun part of life. The physical aspect of love is an important part of a relationship and communicating with your partner about it only helps to make it better. Sexual communication will make it easier for you to take pleasure in sex with safety and have a satisfying sex life.

Physical Communication: Communication is not linked with words only. Sometimes, a gentle hand placed on your shoulder or back, a simple glance at you or even a wink are enough to lure someone towards you. Healthy and amazing sexual activity is procured mainly through physical intimacy. Almost all the time, couples find out what the other is thinking even without asking them. Actions speak louder than words is proven to be very true in this case. So, ensure that you understand physical cues of each other.

Sexual Directions: Giving your partner verbal or physical direction is an integral part of achieving a satisfied sexual life. He or she needs to be informed of where to touch you and where not to in order to turn you on. If your spouse is clueless of what you might want or expect in bed, sexual gratification will not only become impossible but may turn disastrous. If there is verbal communication between you two such as, kiss me or touch me there , the sexual experience will become ten times better. This happens only when there is love and proper sexual communication.

Conversational Communication: Sexual urge is aroused only when there is vocal communication. All relationships require good oral communication. Communication related to sex must be done tactfully without making it awkward or uncomfortable. It will help solve many issues in your sexual and love life. You must focus on what your partner might prefer doing more or may work around issues which cause strife and eventually resolve them.

Intimacy: Emotional as well as sexual intimacy requires honest communication. Some display their inner inhibitions while others are reserved in matters of expression on sexual life. Each couple is accustomed to different and unique styles of communication with their partners. It is important to be able to comfortably and smoothly express yourself and get instant feedback from your spouse in order to be most compatible with each other.

'Weak' is a vague term. Reason of weakness in a 30 years young lady are 1) taking less food, or 2) getting less rest, or 3) becoming anaemic (less haemoglobin) due to some cause like chronic disease, excessive blood loss during period and so many. So madam without doing delay please consult your family physician or consultant in general medicine to detect the cause. Treatment shall be according to that. Remember you are the pivot of your family. If you become unhealthy your family shall get ruined. There is no other way but to keep yourself fit to enjoy your relations in the family.

Dear Lybrate user, I am not aware about the heat thing. One can have chapati at night during pregnancy. However, one should not stuff oneself and have it at least 2 hours before sleeping.

We are in a relationship since 5 years and now it is decided by our parents and family to get married next year. In these 5 years I got pregnant 5 times, (i. E. 2 times I miscarried, 2 times I had d&c procedure done @ 3 months & 1 time I had an abortion done @ 5 months through a normal delivery procedure.) I know it's really disgusting what we did:((but all that happened without any prior notice. Means I never get to know that I am pregnant, I was on my regular periods always, no pains no any other symptoms of pregnancy recognized by the time. And that is for every 5 time. Even that last time, I didn't get to know that I was pregnant (i had my periods every 5 months, no pains, no any other symptoms of pregnancy I found, even 1st two months I checked through pregnancy kit, it showed negative result). So I didn't have any idea about getting pregnant n that so with 5 months. By the time of 5 months I felt severe pains in my pelvic muscles n back n for that I visited the gynecologist n then she told me that I am pregnant. N after ultrasound it got totally clear. Doctor made us comfortable and fine again. Thanks to her. Now. We still live together, we have regular sex and again my periods are normal. Sometimes precautions are used, sometimes not. My question is this. That 1. Please tell me if all that happened earlier can affect my future pregnancies? 2. What should we do to avoid regular pregnancies only for 1 more year? 3. Miscarriages, d&c, abortion. What effect will be on my future pregnancies? 4. Is is normal to have sex daily. With or without precautions?

How to Prepare for IVF

Infertility Specialist
IVF Specialist
Ask Free Question
Infertility is known to usher a lot of emotional stress in the lives of those who go through it. Often, an overwhelming sense of grief descends upon the couple who try to grapple with the sense of loss. The social and psychological ambience plays a very important role in reconciling one with the harsh reality and prepping one up for a fresh start.

While IVF has proven to be a boon in the lives of many couples, many still take to IVF as the last resort. Another factor that makes the responses about IVF rather ambiguous is the uncertainty of the results. There are numerous factors like failure in embryo attachment or uterine incompatibility that often results in a failed IVF. Therefore, before opting for this surgery, one must be mindful of the consequences.

Some of the ways, one can prepare oneself for IVF have been enlisted below:

1. Informed choice: Considering IVF is a rather stressful surgery, one needs to be well aware of the stakes. Reading up about the potential risks and the details about the process, helps one to be prepared for the consequences and deal better with the trauma.

2. Take good care of your intimate relationships: Since IVF tends to take a toll on not just the mother, but also the close family, it is important to maintain a strong bond of trust and compassion in the course of the surgery. Hostility and discordance adds on the stress and sometimes inflict grave health implications upon the mother. It is important to support your partner through the entire journey. You may consider professional counselling too.

3. Prepare yourself for all possible situations: While the advanced technology aims to minimize any hazard, the results can often be unpredictable. You might want to adequately monitor your cycle in order to anticipate the potential problem areas and the results thereof. You should discuss these with your loved ones to avert excessive stress. It is a good idea to keep oneself productively busy in the due course to avoid anxiety.
