Hello it was not required as the chances of getting pregnant are remote on 3rd day of periods. Since she has taken the medicine, it will not have side effects.

We had sex a month back and I used condom as well. By mistake I did wrong penetration which means I put it in the wrong portion of uterus. We went to gynacs as she was bleeding for 2 days and she told is that there is no chance of getting pregnant but still she is worried as she dint got in periods when last week was due for her. So why is it so.

It may be possible that the bleeding she got was actually the period which came early. If protection was not adequate but it happened within 5 days of expected period, then also risk of pregnancy is much lesser. Whichever it may be, you have to wait for 7 days after missed period before the pregnancy test is of any value.

Hi, If your last period was abnormal in any way , please do a blood test to rule out pregnancy. For pregnancy, try around ovulation time for 3-6 months.

If you had normal periods after unprotected intercourse then its highly unlikely that you r pregnant. Even then if you want to be sure, do urine pregnancy test urself.

If there is no pregnancy. I advise you to do meditation for mental strength by doing slow and deep breathing relaxation exercises in the morning. Take proper balanced vegetarian diet. Take 8 to 10 glasses of water daily. Avoid non veg and eggs. Follow this and give feedback.

Dear lybrate user, not having periods till now may usually be either due to breastfeeding or pregnancy; the former is more likely if you had used contraception. If not, it calls for urine pregnancy test specially if there are symptoms akin to early pregnancy.

Good Sex Life Happens When You Take Good Care of Your Vagina

Good Sex Life Happens When You Take Good Care of Your Vagina

Enjoy an good sex life by taking care of your vagina in these 4 easy ways

As a woman, keeping your vagina clean and healthy is very crucial for enjoying a great sex life. When you keep your genitals squeaky clean and fresh, you promote the production of beneficial bacteria, thereby fending off infections, which can act as an obstruction in your sex life. Here are 4 ways a healthy vagina can take your sex life to the next level.

1. Shave your pubic hair to promote sensitivity

Short or no vaginal hair can lower the chances of odours and infections. Keeping your vagina hair-free is also known to increase the sensitivity of your genitals, making sex that much more pleasurable than before. Also, for many, shaved genitals have immense visual appeal, which can give rise to an intense arousal in your partner. What’s more, oral sex is greatly enhanced when you shave off pubic hair.

2. Try Kegel exercise to enjoy good orgasms

Kegel exercise is meant for strengthening your pelvic floor. Doing kegel regularly not only helps in keeping your pelvic organs in place, but also helps in toning your vaginal muscles, thereby heightening arousal considerably. Plus, they tighten your grip on the penis during intercourse, and give rise to more intense contractions during orgasm.

3. Use lubricants to make sex smooth and painless

The function of lubricants is not just to maintain a healthy pH balance in your vagina. They prevent the irritation of your labia and vagina, and make sex a very pleasurable activity. Lubricants are particularly helpful for women who experience vaginal dryness or face difficulties in penetration. Just keep in mind not to use petroleum jelly and other oil-based products as lubes as they can cause a rupture in latex condoms, consequently giving rise to infections.

4. Eat fruits to enhance pleasure

Foul odour can be a big dampener when it comes to oral sex. Usually the cause of bad vaginal odour is your diet and personal hygiene habits. Eating certain foods can prevent this from happening and can even in fact make your vagina smell sweeter. Be sure to include lots of fresh fruits such as mangoes, oranges, apples etc in your diet. Yoghurt and honey are good too. Avoid foods with strong smells such as onions, garlic and even alcohol as they give rise to bad odour.

Frequent washing and cleaning (twice a day at least) of your vagina with warm water and a gentle and unscented  soap helps to remove sweat and grime, making your vagina smell and feel fresh and thus enhancing sexual pleasure for you and your partner.

I am 46 years old working suffering from thyroid and PCOD. Except thyroxine 50 mg. I am taking any kind of medicine. Please advise if I should start taking AMway's nutrilite daily or woman revital. Which one is better?

I am 46 years old working suffering from thyroid and PCOD. Except thyroxine 50 mg. I am taking any kind of medicine. ...
lybrate-user, Your BMI is 33.33 kgs/M2, showing grade 1 obesity. This points to an uncontrolled hypothyroidism also it does aggravate PCOD. You should seriously plan to reduce weight. Your ideal body weight should be 55 kgs. Plus there should be better control of TSh levels to keep hypothyroidism in check. On treatment TSH should be between 3 to 4 mU/L, then only all the symptoms are in check. For PCOD also you need to take some treatment. Regular exercise and properly planned diet are needed. As regards taking Nutrilite, an exorbitantly expensive product, there a re a number of alternative Indian products with whey protein. Those can be used. But first you have to work on reducing the weight. Thanks.

She might be having hormonal imbalance or she might be normal. Having sex 2-3 times in a day in young age is normal. Better get an opinion from competent doctor.

Eat satavari grutham and legyam from ayurvedic medical shop. Also take ashokarista tonic. Take it for 1 week. Enough you got cured. Take few quantity papaya leaf. Slice it and put in 300 ml water. Boil it for 20 minutes. Drink that water. Do it for 3 days. All kind of fevers will go away even if there is joint pains.
