Sperms in seminal fluid remain active for about 2-3 hours however their motility and fertility status declines with time. The time for which sperms remain viable also differs from one male to another. Considering the act that you did, it seems very less likely that sperms could have remained viable on your finger.

My girl friend got some muscle pieces from vagina with blood. We consult some doctor she said it is abortion. Now the muscle pieces coming out has been stopped. But bleeding is happening daily. Is their any problem in future foe her? It is happening from 15 days muscle pieces have been stopped before a week.

Dear Lybrate user, Considering your condition as abortion (which it most likely is) continuation of bleeding means that there is likelihood that a small chunk of tissue may still be in the uterus. That can be known after doing the ultrasound of lower abdomen.

With the advancing age fertility decreases, and also you have one tube block. So with one patent tube and at this age without wasting time you should think of some assistance / help. For you now ivf is best possible thing for conceiving, as success rate of ivf also decreases with age, so you need to take decision now.

Ten Advantages of Having Regular Sex

Dr. Sharmila majumdar 

Makes your heart healthier 
Studies have shown that as the frequency of orgasms increases over a period of time, the risk of getting a stroke or a heart attack reduces drastically. During the activity, the most intense moment are equivalent to walking approximately 8 kilometers per hour.
Reduces stress
Researchers have found out that having regular sex reduces stress and is similar to the effects of having a sweet, sugary chocolate bar, but lasts for a much longer time than you would think.
Improves sleep patterns 
Post- coital sleep after a satisfying session of lovemaking is known to be refreshing, although the exact reason or science behind it is not yet known. Yet as per some studies, oxytocin which is released in the body post-orgasm has relaxing and sleep-inducing properties.

Regular coitus enhances anti-ageing properties and studies have shown that older men and women look at least 5 to 7 years younger if they are sexually active.
It is a fertility booster 
Female hormones are better balanced after frequent sexual activity and also regulates periods, which in turn improves chance of conceiving a baby. With males, the sperm quality is enhanced due to regular sex.
Fortifies your body against diseases
Dhea a natural steroid released in the body during sex is known to increase body fitness levels and prevents various diseases too.
Keeps flu and colds away
Immunoglobulin is an antibody that protects against cold and flu and is found in abundance in individuals who have sex more than once a week.

Neurotransmitter released during sex improves your mood to a considerable extent.
Gives you a healthy glow

Those who have pcod should change their lifestyle and reduce weight by avoiding junk foods, taking more and more salads, high protein diet, sprouted beans, fruits, vegetables, dry fruits etc. As well as you should also start treatment for pcod and continue at least for 3 months followed by ultrasonography to confirm that pcod has been cured.

Can someone let me know complete precautions that someone needs to take to avoid pregnancy? Is condom the only way? Me and my partner had unprotected sex for dew times now. Is there anything that she needs to worry about it take some pills? Any suggestions is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Method of contraception depends on how frequently you have sex with your partner. For people having sexual intercourse occasionally barrier contraceptives like condoms are good as they provide around 80% protection. To avoid pregnancy, in addition to using condoms it is advisable to have sex in safe periods of menstrual cycle. Contraceptive emergency pills can be used by female partner in case of unprotected sex, but they do have certain side effects and should better be avoided as regular contraceptives. For more details you may consult a gynaecologist.

Irregular cycles are common during your age because of decline in estrogen hormone. It may become scanty and can come every 2-3 months also. If you have never been screened with pap test or ultrasound is not done, then it is an opportunity for you to get it tested now.
