I am female 24, married since last 9months. While having sex we us to suck/lick each other (pennis and vagina). Is there any harm? We want to enjoy healthier/safe sex. So pls guide us.

Mutual oral stimulation of genitalia by sexual partners is an unnatural way of sexual intercourse and a perversion. However it's a personal choice to make. What you can best ensure is, it is hygienic and not discomforting or against the wish of either partners.

Do masturbation cause any harm? There is a small tight lump in the scrotum near the outer body of right testicle. What is it? When I press that lump only then it is paining otherwise no pain. Is there any treatment needed?

General Physician, Mumbai
Mastubation should be done only after a gap of two weeks otherwise it will be harmful to the body and get an Usg scrotum done to rule out the pathology

PCOD - Can Nutritional Changes Help?

MSc.PhD Nutrition & Diete, Jr. Research Fellowship for PhD, M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition - Dept. of Post Graduate Studies
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
PCOD - Can Nutritional Changes Help?

Polycystic ovarian disease (PCOD) or syndrome (PCOS) is a condition where there are multiple cysts in the ovaries and as a result there are several symptoms in various body parts. One of the significant things to note is that there is a strong correlation between diet and PCOD/PCOS. Read on to understand some of the common symptoms of PCOD and also some nutritional do’s and don’t’s.

Symptoms: Understanding symptoms of PCOS helps in planning a diet in a more rational manner.

  1. The excessively produced male hormone (androgen) in the body promotes weight gain around the belly area. This needs to be controlled or else, can lead to increased cholesterol, diabetes, hypertension, and heart disease.
  2. Skin problems such as acne
  3. Increased insulin resistance, leading to increased sugar levels
  4. Hirsutism (excessive hair growth)
  5. Male pattern baldness

While not every problem associated with PCOD can be managed through diet, nutrition changes in a woman can have a significant effect on the overall health and well-being. Some common dietary changes to make when diagnosed with PCOD are listed below.

Higher levels of insulin make the body produce more androgens. PCOD women often have higher levels of insulin, meaning high androgen level, which increases their weight (builds muscle mass). Therefore, to control the level of insulin, high fiber diet like greens, nuts, berries, pumpkin, almonds, whole grains, etc. should be included. These ensure that digestion process is prolonged and blood sugar levels do not rise rapidly.

  1. Protein-rich food items like tofu, soya, and chicken are also highly beneficial for PCOD women. They do not contain fiber, but provide a full feeling and help in avoiding binge eating. They also do not pack in calories and are helpful in weight management.
  2. Food items which are generally anti-inflammatory including tomatoes, spinach, olive oil, fruits, and Omega-3 fatty acids are highly beneficial in controlling cholesterol and heart disease.
  3. Eat good fat. Reduce trans and saturated fats, increase unsaturated fats. Use vegetable and nuts oils to get these benefits.

What to avoid: Anything that can lead to increased sugar levels should be reduced.

  1. Avoid whites, such as pasta, rice, and bread which are made of refined flour and have absolutely no fiber content.
  2. Baked and processed foods should be avoided.
  3. Curb your intake of candies, chocolates, snacks, which are just calories and are of no nutritional value.
  4. Avoid salty snacks, which again are just calories and not beneficial.
  5. Do not consume aerated drinks and soda, which are just laden with sugar.

A diet rich in protein, N3 PUFA And MUFA can help reduce inflammation and control diabetes, heart disease, and hypertension. All these are a result of chronic inflammation and can be managed through this approach as also reverse PCOD and its complications. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dietitian/Nutritionist.

Advanced Aesthetics, BDS

Hi, there are various reasons of bad breath, like impurities in blood, inefficient digestive system, dry mouth (lack of saliva production), gum disease, cavities, plaque and tartar formation around teeth and gums, kind of diet, improper brushing / cleaning of mouth etc. I would advise you to get a thorough physical and dental examination to rule out the cause of bad breath and to solve it permanently.

I feel I have a small penis, havnt grown much from school days. Its a turn down with the ladies I meet. Its affecting my confidence. Are there any herbal ways to start its growth?

Advanced Aesthetics
Ayurveda, Gulbarga
There's no such thing as a normal or right-sized penis. Every man's penis is different, and penises can vary in size and shape. Penises that are smaller when they're limp grow more when they're erect, so your penis' size when limp does not necessarily predict its size when erect. An average penis size as follows? erect penile length of 14.2 centimeters (5.6 inches) erect penile circumference of 12.2 centimeters (4.8 inches many men worry that their penis is too small. But when you look at your penis from above, it seems smaller than it is because you're looking down on it. If you're overweight, your penis may look smaller as some of its base will be hidden by fat around your stomach for men as it is for women, the care for their sexual organs is one of the top priorities. Sex is the aspect that defines the relationship of a man with a woman and gives them a strong reason to have a happy and smooth relationship. Herein, for men their penis is the sign of masculinity and one that needs to be healthy and strong for gratifying sex for men as well as their partners. One of the essential oils that have major benefits to soothe the muscles and to improve the blood flow is lavender oil. This can be mixed with a little carrier oil like olive oil because of its high concentration. Use this on the penis to improve its strength. With regular use for a couple of weeks, you will see visible outcomes for yourself. This is easily accessible and worth the amount you spend on it? sandalwood oil as a dual benefit, it also helps in increasing the sperm count. This is an oil that a man can consider without any second thoughts any queries consult privately.

Dear Doctor, I'm having itching situation on my penile glans, sometimes like thrush kind of. Is that ok if I use coconut oil for curing. Kindly suggest as i'm getting married next month.

Dentist, Lucknow
If you think its kind of thrush then please visit you dentist as thrush are many opportunistic infections and only happens when you immune system is depressed any major systemic infection. So go for routine blood investigations to rule out the underlying disease and you may also need to have help from physician also but only after reports of blood tests. Since it is communicable condition it is better to get treated before your marriage.

There are three forms of Fungal infection of nails- distal subungual, superficial white, and proximal subungual. Distal subungual onychomycosis is the most common form.Betamil is a steroid which should be avoided in any infection unless it is inflammed. Usually Tab . Terbest 250 mg daily once for 6 weeks is the treatment , the dose of which is again adjusted according to the weight. Combined with this topical nail on nail laquer daily once application can be done. But please check with your doctor before takin the medication.
