Hello, The menses can be delayed by 7-10 days especially in cases of high stress during the cycle. So if pregnancy is ruled out, you can safely wait for 10 days to allow your menses to start naturally.

You are bit confused. One side you do not want to leave her. Other side worried of hiv. Get test done and everything will be clear. Also if she has problems in getting pregnant. Then talk to her and today there are many ways by which you can get pregnancy and that can be done. Since you like her so much then do not think much and after the test marry her.

I have pcod problem in 2013 I had a miscarriage now I am conceiving this month what can I do.
Hello lybrate user- ayurvedic concept of pcod (poly cystic ovarian disease) is somewhat different than modern concept, it generally occurs due to irregular food and daily habits done specially at the time of menstrual bleeding period. Pcod effect the ovulation process thus makes it difficult for the female to conceive and get pregnant. Some general tips to avoid pcod are- a) avoid spicy food fast food during the bleeding and take fresh indian food. B) use wet sponging instead of taking bath on those days. C) avoid running, skipping and other exercises on those days. D) use dashmoolarishtha 2 tsp twice daily with water ten days before menses.

Hello- Ovarian cyst provides pathological contraception, it means you can't get pregnant if you are suffering from ovarian cyst, other symptoms include weight gain, facial hairs, etc. So your missed periods can be due to your cyst and not because of your unsafe sex.

Bleeding before due date is not exactly a sign of pregnancy. But this csn b a ovulation bleed if it is spottinng, as it is occuring roughly 14-15 days after your periods. Not to worry for being pregnant but jnprotected sex during this time csn makeyou pregnant, even in non insertion of penis, pre ejection seminal fluid contains some sperm.

There is a unique herbal combo comprising of de-stressing/ adaptogen and stimulating herbs, given to females to boost the sex desire. Also PAAN plays a role in which high quality calcined borax (Tankan as popularly known) is given for sucking the leaf which produces enzymes boosting sex desire. This is based on Ayurveda. Totally harmless/ safe. May connect if apprehension prevail in your mind and ask everything. Even book Audio call through Lybrate.

What is clitoris? Which parts of female is clitoris? How I stimulate her clitoris for a minute?

What is clitoris? Which parts of female is clitoris? How I stimulate her clitoris for a minute?
. Clitoris is a small gland of projection at the superior aspect of vagina from where thin frills of inner lips of vagina arise. It is one of the most erotic area that has most nerve endings, so is when rubbed can give you lot of pleasure. It is not wrong to fulfill your desires by either fingering your vagina inside or rubbing the clitoris. Any way fingering the vagina or rubbing in that area, is a way of pleasing yourself. By this you are not disturbing your virginity and not doing wrong. Though I have elaborated here but still further any question let know.

There's nothing worse than desperately needing to go to the toilet when the only options are a service station or public park. You hold your breath and try not to think about the disease-causing germs that are probably crawling all over the seat and bowl – chlamydia, gonnorrhea and syphilis, to name but a few. But can you actually catch a sexually transmitted infection (STI), from a toilet seat? No you can't, according to sexual health expert Professor Basil Donovan, because even if the bacteria and viruses that can cause an STI got onto the seat, they can't survive for long after leaving the human body. As their name suggests STD Is are most commonly spread through sexual activity, including intercourse, oral sex and, in the case of some diseases such as genital warts, direct skin-to-skin contact. "There's nothing very magical about STDIs, they're fastidious bugs which don't like dry [conditions], heat, Donovan says. "Most organisms are quite fragile so don't last any more than a few minutes. Because they dry out and die. "Viruses such as warts can't get in unless there is a break in the skin, and when you have sex it induces micro-trauma and breaks the outer layer of skin, Donovan says. "If the virus was just dabbed on the outside of your skin it couldn't attach itself, Granted, if you had a cut on your bottom and there were bacteria or viruses on the seat it is theoretically possible that you could catch an STI. But Donovan says in all his years of treating patients he has never suspected a toilet seat as the source of any STI. Toilet seats are also unlikely to be the source of urinary tract infections, most commonly caused by the bacteria Escherichia coli (E. Coli), because your urethra – the tube that connects the bladder to the genitals and can become infected – never touches the seat. Hygiene hints But while you don't need to worry about picking up an STI the next time you need to visit a public convenience, you should still think hygiene-first while in the bathroom. Washing and drying your hands after using the toilet is one of the most important factors in stopping the spread of the germs that can cause digestive diseases, such as rotavirus. Donovan says the most important habits for hygiene are: Not touching your face until you wash your hands if you have been to the toilet Washing your hands with soap Drying your hands thoroughly "Drying your hands is more important than washing them. If you wet a door knob you do a disservice to everyone because you are improving the environment in which germs can thrive,

Know More About Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS)!

Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS), also known as digital eyestrain, is a group of vision-related problems arising due to prolonged use of computer, smartphones and tablets. Many people experience visual discomfort while viewing digital screens for a long period.

Computer vision syndrome (CVS)
Symptoms Causes Treatments
  • Uncorrected spectacle power
  • Decreased blink rate
  • Inappropriate glasses for computers
  • Improper Lighting
  • Stress on eye muscles due to style of work
  • Proper eye care
  • Proper positioning of body for using computers and digital devices
  • Regular blinking
  • Rest breaks
  • Proper lighting


A good rule to follow is often called the 20-20-20 rule. When working at a
computer: every 20 minutes, look away from your computer screen and
find an object that’s at least 20 feet away to look at for 20 seconds. This
relaxes eye alignment and focusing muscles that are used for close up
work, reducing your risk of eyestrain and eye fatigue. If you still have
problems please see your eye specialist, who will be able to advise further
and also check your eyes in detail for any problems.

AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY GUIDLINES -FOR CANCER PREVENTION
Alcohol
Does alcohol increase cancer risk?

Alcohol increases the risk of cancers of the mouth, pharynx, larynx, esophagus, liver, and breast. People who drink alcohol should limit their intake to no more than two drinks per day for men and one drink per day for women. A drink is defined as 12 ounces of beer, 5 ounces of wine, or 1.5 ounces of 80-proof distilled spirits. The combination of alcohol and tobacco increases the risk of cancer far more than the independent effects of either drinking or smoking. Regular consumption of even a few drinks per week is associated with an increased risk of breast cancer in women. Women at high risk of breast cancer may consider abstaining from alcohol.

Coffee
Does drinking coffee cause cancer?

Caffeine may heighten symptoms of fibrocystic breast lumps (a type of benign breast disease) in some women, but there is no evidence that it increases the risk of breast cancer or other types of cancer. The association between coffee and pancreatic cancer, widely publicized in the past, has not been confirmed by other studies

Obesity
Does being overweight increase cancer risk?

Yes. Overweight and obesity are associated with increased risk for cancers of the breast (among postmenopausal women), colon, endometrium, gallbladder, adenocarcinoma of the esophagus, pancreas, renal cell (kidney) carcinoma, and possibly other sites as well

Tea
Can drinking tea reduce cancer risk?

Some researchers have proposed that tea might protect against cancer because of its antioxidants contents. In animal studies, some teas (including green tea) have been shown to reduce cancer risk, but epidemiological studies have had mixed findings. Presently, tea has not been proven to reduce cancer risk in humans

Vegetarian diets
Do vegetarian diets reduce cancer risk?

Vegetarian diets include many health promoting features; they tend to be low in saturated fat and high in fiber, vitamins, and phytochemicals (eg flavonoids, etc.). It is not possible to conclude at this time, however, that a vegetarian diet has any special benefits for the prevention of cancer. Vegetarian diets differ in composition, although all avoid consumption of red meat. A vegetarian diet can be quite healthful if it is carefully planned and provides adequate calories. Diets including lean meats in small to moderate amounts can be just as healthful. The greater the restriction of food groups in a particular diet, the more possibility there is of dietary deficiencies. Strict vegetarian diets that avoid all animal products, including milk and eggs, should be supplemented with vitamin B-12, zinc, and iron (especially for children and pre-menopausal women

Water and other fluids
How much water and other fluids should I drink?

Consumption of water and other liquids may reduce the risk of bladder cancer, as water dilutes the concentration of carcinogens and shortens the time in which they are in contact with the bladder lining. Drinking at least eight cups of liquid a day is usually recommended, and some studies indicate that even more may be beneficial
