You have to be mentally ready for it. You need to leave loose while penis getting inserted. For your easy movement you can apply lucib gel which is a lubricating gel which will help in slipping of penis in vagina apply it before intercourse. Other wise you may land up in marriage problem with your husband.

Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery - Why Should You Go For It?

Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery - Why Should You Go For It?

The spine plays a very crucial role, both from a person’s movement and sensation point of view. It carries the nervous supply for a lot of internal organs and the lower body. By virtue of its structure, it also helps in movement through the disks. Due to various reasons, spinal injury is common, causing pain along the back, lower extremities, neck etc.

Medicines and exercise are the first line of treatment for most spinal injuries. The issue, however, is that these only provide relief from the pain and the medicines, but do not actually ‘rectify’ the underlying problem. Whether it is a herniated disk or a pinched nerve, the medicines and exercise can relieve the symptoms, but the disk continues to be herniated and the nerve continues to be pinched. Definite treatment is in the form of surgery, and with recent advancements in the field of spinal surgery, there are minimally invasive surgical options, which provide complete cure with minimal recovery time. Some of the benefits of this are listed below-

  1. Smaller incision compared to traditional surgical procedures, where only the injured area is accessed

  2. The surrounding tissues are untouched, unless they are injured and require repair

  3. Lesser bleeding compared to earlier techniques

  4. Lesser painful procedure

  5. Reduced hospitalization period

  6. Quicker recovery and return to normal activities

The question, however, is whether this is indicated in everybody. A detailed discussion with your surgeon keeping the below points in mind will help identify the answer for this. The main driver should be the answer to the question – will the surgery be able to effectively relieve you of the pain and symptoms? Additionally, the following factors help in getting better results out of a minimally invasive spinal surgery.

  1. Presence of symptoms relating to nerve compression, including pain from the spine down the leg.

  2. Recent onset of symptoms, with pain starting days to months before seeing the doctor. This indicates the condition is relatively new and so damage is minimal, indicating favorable outcome. Chronic pain conditions take slightly longer time compared to recent injuries.

  3. People with active lifestyle who engage in regular physical exercise are likely to have better benefits from the minimally invasive procedure.

  4. Smoking reduces blood flow to the spine, leading to disk degeneration and weakening of bones. Healing is highly slowed down and recovery is overall delayed.

  5. Excessive weight puts strain on the back, and so healing can be delayed or badly affected with more complications. It is not a contraindication, but be prepared for a longer recovery period.

Talk to your doctor keeping these points in mind, and you can bid farewell to your back pain forever. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Post-Pregnancy Weight - 10 Tips To Lose It!

Post-Pregnancy Weight - 10 Tips To Lose It!

Post-pregnancy weight can be difficult to get rid of. It is a gradual process and often takes time. Experts are of the view that hormonal imbalance and a sudden increase in the diet are the major cause of the additional weight. This being said, shedding weight is possible if a consistent effort is made on a daily basis. Here is a list of hat tips to get you started:

  1. Walk every day: Walking 5 minutes a day does the world of good in the endeavor of shedding weight. Post the 6-week check-up after the arrival of the baby, the duration of walking can be increased. Brisk walking for half an hour can help the body to weight as much as 300 calories a day.
  2. Weight training- Weight training is one of the best forms of exercise to lose weight quickly. If hitting a gym is a problem, a personal trainer can be hired for working out. Certain exercises such as lifting small weights, doing lunges is a good way to start.
  3. Breastfeed: Breastfeeding for a time duration of 30-45 minutes (about3-4 times a day) helps to lose 600-800 calories per day. Some women even report of shedding all their extra weight just through breastfeeding. This is by far the easiest way of losing weight.
  4. Say no to calories- Calories, by all means, will have to be avoided. Certain fast food items such as soda, chocolate, and chips should not be consumed at all. Instead, meals rich in nutrient, fresh vegetable, fruits, whole grains etc. should be consumed on a daily basis.
  5. Frequent meals- 2 to 3 heavy meals a day are detrimental to a person trying to shed weight. Frequent meals, on the other hand, maintain a steady blood sugar levels, reduce the tendency of over-eating and do not let fat store in the body.
  6. Frequent naps- Studies show that frequent naps can help a great deal of weight. It reduces the craving of eating food with high calorie. It also revitalizes the metabolism and refrains a person from long term self-deprivation. Naps will also help to gather enough energy to perform other physical activities.
  7. Healthy snacks- Home-made snacks containing whole wheat, low-fat milk and yogurt are good snack options for post pregnancy weight loss. These snacks block hormones that are responsible for storage of fat in the body.
  8. Yoga or meditation- Yoga has proved to be extremely effective for women trying to shed post-pregnancy weight. It especially helps in toning down the fat in the upper and lower abdomen which is extremely difficult to get rid of. Yoga also relaxes the mind and helps to focus more.
  9. Consumption of warm water- Drinking warm water after every meal serves two purposes.
    • It doesn’t let the fat store inside the body.
    • It helps in better digestion. It has to be ensured that the water is mildly warm and drinkable.
  10. Avoid stress- Nurturing a baby is exhausting enough. Stress on top of this can be disastrous. It leads to depression resulting into junk eating. It has to be ensured that stress is avoided by engaging in activities such as cooking, painting or listening to music. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

कीगल एक्सरसाइज और उसके फायदे

कीगल एक्सरसाइज और उसके फायदे

कीगल एक्सरसाइज और उसके फायदे

कीगल एक्‍सरसाइज पेल्विक एरिया में रक्त के प्रवाह में वृद्धि करके पेल्विक की मांसपेशियों को मजबूत रखता है। जिससे इसकी संवेदनशीलता में तेजी आती है। और यह अनुभूती उत्तेजना और आर्गेंज्‍म में मदद करती हैं।

कीगल एक्‍सरसाइज की खोज

डॉक्‍टर अर्नाल्ड कीगल ने इस एक्‍सरसाइज की खोज की है। यह एक्‍सरसाइज गर्भवती महिलाओं की मूत्र असंयम को नियंत्रित करने और बच्चे के जन्म के बाद जल्‍दी ठीक होने में मदद करती है। लेकिन पिछले कुछ वर्षों में यह बात साबित हुई है कि कीगल एक्‍सरसाइज पुरुषों की समय पूर्व स्‍खलन की समस्‍या को कम करने और महिलाओं की श्रोणि की मांसपेशियों को मजबूत बनाने में भी मदद करती है।

कैसे करें कीगल एक्‍सरसाइज
पीसी मसल्‍स, पैरों के बीच पेल्विक के पास स्थित होती हैं। इसे करने के लिए अपने घुटनों को मोड़ कर आराम की स्थिति में बैठ जाए। अब आप ध्‍यान केंद्रित करके पीसी मसल्‍स को टाइट करके संकुचित करें। इसे 30 से 50 बार दोहराये। पूरी प्रकिया के दौरान स्‍वतंत्र रूप से सांस लें।  इस एक्‍सरसाइज को करने के दौरान 5 सेकंड के लिए संकुचन करें और फिर 5 सेकंड के लिए आराम करें। धीरे-धीरे इस समय को बढ़ा कर 10 सेकंड कर दें।
ज्‍यादा न करें कीगल एक्‍सरसाइज
कीगल एक्‍सरसाइज को खाली जगह पर ही करें जैसे बेडरूम या बाथरूम। एक्‍सरसाइज के दौरान पेल्विक एरिया की मांसपेशियों को स्क्वीज करें और तीन की गिनती करके उसे रोकें। ध्‍यान रखें कि इस एक्‍सरसाइज को ज्‍यादा करने के लिए अपने आपको न धकेले, उतनी ही करें जितना आप आराम से कर सकते हैं।

कीगल एक्‍सरसाइज के दौरान सावधानी
कीगल एक्‍सरसाइज को भरे हुए ब्‍लैडर या मूत्राशय के दौरान न करें, क्‍योंकि ऐसा करना आपकी मांसपेशियों को कमजोर कर सकता है और ब्‍लैडर को अधूरा खाली कर देता है। जिससे आपको यूरीन मार्ग में संक्रमण हो सकता है।

सेक्स लाइफ बेहतर
कीगल एक्‍सरसाइज करने से आपके यौन अंगों में रक्त के प्रवाह में सुधार होता है। जिससे पेल्विक एरिया की मसल्स मजबूत होती है और आपकी सेक्‍स जीवन में सुधार होता है। आप अधिक सुखद और आर्गेज्‍म की प्राप्ति आसानी से कर सकते हैं। 

पूर्व स्‍खलन की समस्‍या
कीगल एक्‍सरसाइज से पुरुषों के हिप्स की मांसपेशियां मजबूत होती है। जिससे पुरुष जल्दी डिस्चार्ज होने की समस्या बच  सकते हैं। और आप देर तक सेक्स को एंज्वॉय कर सकते हैं।
