Mucoid discharge increases in pregnancy. If it is not associated with any vaginal itching or bad smell or different colour like green or yellow it is usually physiological. However if in doubt please see your obstetrician.

4 Things to Improve Your Metabolism

4 Things to Improve Your Metabolism

It is often said that we are what we eat. So, when a person aims to stay healthy, maintaining a healthy rate of metabolism is important. So what about foods which can really help boost the metabolism?

While exercise is important to stay healthy, it is said that what a person eats accounts for about 70 to 75% of the entire challenge of being fit. So, it can be said that eating foods which help the metabolism stay at a high level is something which is really very important. But, what exactly are these foods?

  1. It is known that excessive consumption of eggs leads to high levels of cholesterol, but that really does not mean that egg whites are bad for health. As a matter of fact, not only it has a lot of Vitamin D and protein, but there is also a great amount of branched chain amino acids, which can work wonders on the metabolism of a person.
  2. Water is something that is really underrated in a variety of ways. It should not come as a surprise, in that case, to know that it can do its bit to help in keep a metabolism rate high. After all, something that gets the body to function more smoothly should also be part of the answer to getting a more effortless high metabolism rate! Another thing which is interesting to know when it comes to water is the fact that if it is drunk cold, more calories can be burnt as the body would spend some energy in warming the water up. Now, is this not a very simple way to go about making sure that one’s metabolism does not slow?
  3. There are some chemical compounds which can help when it comes to improving the metabolism. One of these happens to be capsaicin. Also, it does not mean that this compound needs to be bought or anything like that. As a matter of fact, it occurs absolutely naturally in chilli peppers. So, just incorporating some of them into the food one eats in a consistent manner will help a lot. Apart from just capsaicin, there is also quite a bit of vitamin C in chilli peppers, so it is truly a case of two birds, one stone!
  4. A cup of coffee is said to be a daily need for a lot of people. While too much is not good, the fact that coffee drinkers tend to have a 16% higher metabolism than normal should provide sufficient reason to make a daily coffee a habit. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

As you r overweight, your estrogen secretion is very less for keeping vagina lubricated naturally. You need to apply estrogen cream like premarin twice a day and vlg gel i. E. Vaginal lubricating gel just before the intercourse. Long term solution swould be to reduce weight along with the above mentioned treatment.

Hello, If she is pregnant then it is important to know what is her gestation period and also the location of pregnancy if its an ectopic or an intrauterine location. SO she has to get an ultrasound pelvis done first and then termination can be planned by medical method under a gynaecologist's supervision.

Stomach Pains in Pregnancy at 5 months. Stomach pains in pregnancy are common, especially as your pregnancy progresses. This is usually because the muscles throughout your abdomen are stretching, along with the ligaments in your pelvis. ... All this moving and stretching can cause discomfort. he probable cause? Round ligament pain. Your uterus is getting bigger every day, and the muscles and ligaments supporting it are stretching out to accommodate the changes. That stretching can bring a bit of pain, especially when you change positions, cough or are particularly active. These mild aches and jabs are normal and may persist as your uterus continues to grow. Having Nutritious Diet during Pregnancy Here is how you can make your diet more nutritious during the fifth month of pregnancy. Try to eat as much as fresh fruits and vegetables as possible. They supply essential minerals and vitamins to your body. Pulses and cereals are rich sources of protein which are required for the growth of the baby. Nuts are also rich in protein. Additionally nuts also provide fiber and are rich in antioxidants. Eat high fiber foods as a fiber rich diet can have many benefits for pregnant women. Include fiber rich foods in your diet even if you feel that it lacks taste or variety. Foods to be Avoided during Pregnancy Some food items are considered unsafe for pregnant women. Read on to find about the food items which should avoided during pregnancy. Avoid carbonated drinks and canned foods. Whenever you are having snacks or having meals, avoid foods high in salt such as chips, pickles and olives. You must not smoke or drink. Avoid eating raw and undercooked meat or any kind of seafood as they sometimes contain harmful bacteria. Do not eat raw eggs also. Do not eat too much chocolate as chocolate also contains caffeine which is not good for pregnant

I had a childbirth in 1993 through Vaginal where sister had put stitches. She said its dissolvable stitches however after a month it did not dissolve and I got fever. I had to get that remove from a normal physician. From then on I can feel there is something pointing in the surrounding area of my vagina at times my husband can also feel the pinch while intercourse and I have been getting recurring urine infection inspite of all measures to avoid it. I want to check is it possible that a small piece would be there inside the skin and causing this problem. If need to get it checked how can I do it? Thanks.

Hi lybrate-user, you need to visit gynaecologist for internal examination to check whether thread is their or not. Regards to urine infection, please get a urine routine microscopy and urine culture and sensitivity to treat it properly. Please drink lots of water. Use washroom immediatly if you feel full bladder. Empty bladder frequently so as to prevent reinfection.

Mental State - 5 Ways It Impacts Sexual Health

Sexologist, Gurgaon
Mental State - 5 Ways It Impacts Sexual Health

Sex is not only a physical need, sex is a great way to emotionally bond and get closer to your partner as well. Any dissatisfaction in the bedroom can affect other aspects of your life, and can lead to fights, squabbles and general unhappiness. The inability to orgasm can become a major bone of contention. There can be various reasons behind the inability to climax. Some of the common ones are detailed below:

1. Lack of stimulation
Studies show that only 25% of women reach climax during sexual intercourse. The remaining 75% of women require more stimulation, like fingers or even toys and tongues to reach orgasm. Amongst this is a subset of 10-15% of women who never reach orgasm. Thus, a large number of women require extra stimulation to achieve climax during sex. You must talk to your partner about putting in some extra effort and providing the extra stimulation you need to achieve climax.
2. Over-thinking
Many men and women over-think their actions in bed. From their expressions to how they are reacting and how they are making their partner feel - everything is under constant scrutiny and revision. This leads to a lot of stress, which can hinder your ability to reach orgasm. You need to relax in the bedroom, because whatever you do will feel good in some way or another. Your anxieties can also distract you from what is going on, which means you don't get the chance to fully experience the pleasures of sex. If it helps, speak to your partner about your anxieties and tell them what you are stressing about during sex.
3. Differences between men and women
Men are visual creatures. This means that what they see turns them on. A woman's orgasm, on the other hand, happens in her head. Thus, men and women have different roots to their stimulation. Lack of an orgasm might mean either of these needs isn't being fulfilled. A great way to work around this and make sex more fun is to include a lot of foreplay in your love-making session. You can do this by trying out role-playing or using sex toys. Make sure to take it slow for a great build-up to your orgasm.
4. Performance issues
Porn has an impact on your sex life. It can increase your expectations to a considerable extent, which may not be fulfilled, thus hampering your experience in the bedroom. A lot of people become so focused on reproducing that experience that they forget that its real life. The focus on performance overwhelms their actual experience of sex, which results in an inability to reach orgasm. Try to accept the fact that you don't really have to perform for your partner. Your partner appreciates you for what you are, despite everything.
5. Mental blocks
A problem in the relationship, certain health conditions like depression, past trauma and negative social conditioning can all have negative impacts on your ability to orgasm. Talk to your partner about past trauma if you have any, and what your triggers are. Consider speaking to a sex therapist as mental health issues should never be neglected. Depression hits the libido hard, and the problem is only compounded by antidepressants. Negative social conditioning can only be helped by therapy, so try to reach out to a mental health professional. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Sexologist.
