How to make hard breast when its become loose please give me name of cream I need name of that cream.
Massaging the breasts regularly can increase your breast size. Massage helps in two ways. First, it increases blood circulation, and secondly, it helps stretch out the tissues within the breast to make them appear bigger and firmer. Use natural oils like olive oil or almond oil to massage your breasts. 1.Rub the oil between your palms for two to three minutes to generate heat. 2.Place your hands on your breasts and rub inwards, continuing around your breasts in a circular direction. 3.Do a minimum of 100 to 300 circular rubs in the morning and again before going to bed. 4.Follow this remedy twice daily for one or two months to get positive results.

TSH level 4.4 is normal.It is not affecting your menstrual cycle.Not having physical relation will not affect the menstrual cycle.Occasionally irregular cycle can occur in a female.Of recurs consult your gynecologist to rule out problems like PCO.Too much of workout also will delay the period.

Hi Nishant. It is indeed possible to get pregnant with precum as it has enough sperms to make a woman pregnant. However fertilisation depends on a lot of things such as ovulation. It would be a good ides to do a pregnancy test and check.

The pre-ejaculate fluid itself does not contain sperm, however, it may pick up sperm from a previous ejaculation that remains in the urethra. Though only a few hundred sperm were present, they could theoretically pose a low risk of pregnancy. And for future use contraception like condom or oral contraceptives.

Hi lybrate user, don't worry PCOD is metabolic syndrome. She should be on proper diet and healthy lifestyle. She may have irregular and delayed period, excessive body hairs, acne problem but these problems can be treated. She may not conceive naturally will need assistance in the form of ovulation induction to get pregnant.

I had sex with 2 girl without protection yesterday I had sex with my wife i am very scared can I diagnose with hiv or hiv western bolt what is that western bolt? How hiv occur how its effect on body? Shall I now sex with my wife in future?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist,
If the two girls are commercial sex workers, then you must be on guard. Unprotected sex with any unknown partner can be a high risk activity and may result in transmission of hiv infection. As per your saying, you had unprotected sex with 2 girls and also had sex with your wife, this act of yours is very irresponsible one. When a person comes in sexual contact with a hiv infected person, the hiv virus can enter the body. Hiv virus is intracellular virus, it needs a cell to multiply body immunity helps in fighting the hiv virus and can keep the virus destroyed, unless the virus has multiplied in vast quantities and has damaged the" protective" white blood cells. This takes time. If the infection is well controlled then the elisa will be negative. That a person is free from hiv, can be said with confidence only after 2 elisa tests 6 months apart, and both being negative. The earliest marker is hiv viral load. This is in the first weeks after infection (usually from 1 to 6 weeks after exposure). A high viral load is related to seroconversion symptoms. The first hiv protein (antigen) that can be measured is p24 (from 2 to 8 weeks after exposure). Viral load and p24 tests are not accurate for diagnosing early hiv if the results are negative. An hiv antibody response can be detected as early as two weeks in a few people and in more than 99.9% of people by 12 weeks. An antibody test at 4 weeks will detect 95% of infections. Antibody testing at 4 weeks can give you a good indication of your hiv status, but you need a test at 12-24 weeks after the exposure to be considered hiv negative. All this will matter if those 2 girls were hiv positive! if they are negative, there will not be any chances of you or your wife getting hiv also, it would be better to abstain from sex with your wife or anybody for the next 6 months or if that is not possible, then a condom with a spermicidal coating is the best option.

My CT SCAN says Both gangliocapsular regions reveal bilateral globus pallidus calcifications. What does this mean in general terms?

My CT SCAN says Both gangliocapsular regions reveal bilateral globus pallidus calcifications. What does this mean in ...
globus pallidus is part of brain which is extra pyrimydal , it gives orders for Vlountary movements, e g your leg moves if required to do so , some medicines like perinorm for vomitting has a reaction and important side effect , extra pyrimydal symptoms, the face start twitching erratically / or get paralysed , luckily these effects are self limiting and take about a day or so to get over , but doctors too get confused about the reasons , if patients do not tell that they have taken perinorm tablet for vomitting on their own / some chemist has given them. This important area in brain tissue is calcified in your case , may be there will be some difficulty in movements , in ordering by the brain to move or to stay stable . You have to wait and watch and remain under supervision of a good neurologist.
