Hi, First check the urine for pregnancy. If it is positive, then consult your gynaecologist who will prescribe some medications to end this pregnancy and later get an IUCD inserted after getting your periods which gives protection for 3-5 years.

Hi lybrate user, this type of discharge can be physiological in ovulation period. Please don't worry. Consult gynaecologist if it is persistent. Please keep local area clean and dry. Use cotton undergarments and change it twice a day. Use loose cotton trousers.

If you don't want pregnancy and pregnancy is of less then 20wks, then you have two choices. 1. Medical abortion. You can take abortive pills. But they are effective only up to 2 month of pregnancy. And they are not always effective. Sometimes it fails to give result. Then you have to go to a gynecologist for curetting. 2. Directly get curetting done. Mostly this is a complete procedure where there is almost nill chance of failure. So, now, choice is yours.

Treatments Available for Anorgasmia

Anorgasmia, also known as Coughlan's syndrome, is a form of dysfunction, which deters your performance in bed. It is defined as the inability of a patient to achieve an orgasm even with adequate stimulation. Anorgasmia may also refer to long delays in achieving an orgasm, causing significant concern or stress to the patient. This condition is more commonly seen in women, especially those in the postmenopausal age group.This is especially common in women.

Cause of Anorgasmia:

  1. Trauma to the genital or pelvic organs; this trauma can be acquired from straddle injuries, for example falling off a balance beam or a bicycle
  2. Complications of surgery in the pelvic area
  3. Gynecologic operations, difficult childbirth and prosthetic procedures
  4. Diseases, such as multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injuries and diabetes mellitus
  5. Psychological conditions such as anxiety, depression or alcoholism
  6. Certain kinds of drugs such as antidepressant medications
  7. Addiction to heroin and other opiates

Occasionally, anorgasmia results from a combination of these causes

Symptoms of Anorgasmia: The primary symptom of anorgasmia is the failure to climax during sexual intercourse. Some patients may also experience a decreased intensity of orgasms, take a longer time than usual to achieve orgasms, and experience pain in lower abdomen or pelvic region during sexual intercourse. These symptoms can produce marked distress for the individual.

Types of Treatments Available: Anorgasmia is best managed by a sexual therapist. These experts are specialists in managing sexual dysfunction, and would initially confirm the diagnosis with several blood tests. A thorough neurological examination will be performed and hormone levels, blood sugar and genital blood flow will be evaluated.

Anorgasmia can be treated with:

  1. Changes in lifestyle and sexual practices
  2. Minimizing stress and anxiety
  3. Trying different techniques of sexual stimulation
  4. Kegel exercises
  5. Use of several devices, such as vacuum pumps and vibrators
  6. Cognitive therapy, a form of behavioral therapy that promotes changes in a person's ideas and attitude towards sexual activity)
  7. Counseling for couples (to allow them to address any issues in the relationship, at home and in the bedroom)

It is not right to keep popping I pills. The menstrual period will get delayed and may pose problems later. There are safe periods and many other things you should be aware of. It is okay to take femilon. It is very safe. When you want to start your family, you should leave the contraceptive pills for 6 months before making an attempt. I have a package in which the physiology of menstruation, conception and contraception are explained in an easy way for youngsters. Please contact me for further advice.

After intercourse my wife feels irritation, itching and pain in her genital. She also don't get fully wet before and during intercourse. We are married since 2 and half years. Now we are planning for a baby and suddenly this problem appears. Please suggest.

Are you doing proper foreplay. If 15 - 20 min foreplay is done then she would get wet. A man is interested in immediate insertion. Talk to her, give her time. It would happen.

If you had regular period after the intercourse and the ipill, it is unlikely that you are pregnant, so you need not fear. Taste and vomiting do not directly indicate the presence or absence of pregnancy.

Tips For Good Appetite!

Tips For Good Appetite!

A healthy appetite refers to a positive sign of a healthy wellbeing. Many factors can contribute to loss of appetite, such as emotional disturbances, mild illness or severe health problems. 
Loss of appetite can cause depression, appendicitis, thyroid problems, infections, poor nutrition and some types of cancer.

The following are a few tips to maintain a healthy appetite-

 Daily breakfast:
It is the most important meal of the day. Consume a healthy balanced breakfast like sprouts, roti, idli, dosa, upma, egg, milk and fruits to help your metabolism get active after a long night fasting. Breakfast will give more energy so that you will be more active throughout the day. It should be full of vitamins, proteins and minerals.

 Eat small frequent meals:
Eating small frequent meals rather than three meals a day is an excellent way to build a healthy appetite. It also helps in lessening bloating and sluggishness after eating. Try four to six small meals a day to avoid feeling overly full.

Use aromatic herbs and spices in cooking:
Foods that have very pleasant or fragrant smell might enhance your appetite. Try to add herbs and spices of nice aroma like cinnamon, basil, oregano, asafoetida, etc.

 Water:
Drinking 4 to 5 liters of water daily is the best for body's temperature regulation and keeping it cool.

Snacks between meals:
Try a small bowl of your favorite snacks like nuts, roasted chickpeas, fruit salads, popcorn, etc. Just remember that snacks are not meant to be eaten instead of meals but in addition to them.

 Pick your favorite food items:
Consume those foods, which give satisfaction and that you enjoy.

Eat less fibre food:
It is present in fruits, vegetables and whole grain food and it is an essential component of any healthy diet. It feels like fullness, so the best is to use in moderation.

Exercise:
Regular physical activity is one of the most important things you can do for your health. So, go for a daily brisk walk for approximately 45 minutes, exercises, yoga, meditation, cycling, swimming and always be relaxed.

It can be a cyst, since you have pcod so go for an ultrasound for confirmation. If there is any chance of pregnancy confirm that as well. Once it is diagnosed that what is it then will prescribe medicine,

I am 24 years old and I am 5 months pregnant. Please advise if I have sex during this time will it effect the brain of the child, please suggest me.

The second trimester of pregnancy, the 4th to 7th month is comparatively safer for having sex during pregnancy. It has got no effect on the brain,only risk is premature pains or risk of infection to the mother.So use a condom and be slow and gentle
