Hi, Welcome to lyberate. I understood your problem. You most likely have uti along with vaginal infection. You need oral antibiotic treatment. You can also be prescribed local vaginal pessaries, in case you are sexually active. Drink plenty of water, around 10-12 glasses daily to wash out the infection. Before I prescribe any medication please get a urine routine and microscopy and urine culture done. Let me know the results soon so that I can help you. All the best. Hope you get better soon.

There is no natural or unnatural way to increase your penis size after you have achieved adulthood. The length of your penis is directly connected to the genes you acquired from your parents.

Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are spread from person to person through sexual contact via semen, vaginal and other bodily fluids and blood. Blood transfusions and use of shared needles are some of the non-sexual ways of transmission. There are various types of STDs including HIV, Gonorrhea, Syphilis, Genital Herpes, Chlamydia, etc. Symptoms are also varied and may include abnormal discharge from genitals, genital itching and discomfort, pain during intercourse and urination, irregular and abnormal periods, fever, and fatigue among others. Symptoms are not always immediate though. Hence it’s imperative for you and your sexual partner to go for periodical STD and STI screening. Also, use latex condoms and practice safe sex to help reduce the risk of STDs. Most STDs can be treated and cured with antibiotics and antiviral drugs. In case of an HIV infection, a combination of antiretroviral drugs is used to keep the virus under control.

How To Get Relief From Heartburn?

MBBS
General Physician, Pune
How To Get Relief From Heartburn?

Heartburn is the name given to that burning sensation in your chest or throat that happens when acid rises up from your stomach into your mouth. Heartburn is a common symptom of gastroesophageal reflux disease or GERD, also called acid reflux.

The commonest heartburn trigger is your diet. Spicy, heavy food causes acid reflux. Coffee, soda, tomatoes, alcohol and chocolate are culprits too. Obesity, smoking and medications for hypertension and cancer are the causes of heartburn too.

Certain people are more susceptible to heartburn. Sports people experience heartburn more, usually because exercise is a big trigger. It does so by putting increased pressure on the abdomen, which can increase the risk of acid reflux.

What can you do when heartburn strikes?

  1. Wear Loose Clothes- Heartburn happens when stomach contents go back into the food pipe where the stomach acid burns tissue. If tight clothes constrict your abdomen, you can experience more heartburn. To get immediate relief, you can just loosen the belt of your trousers.

  2. Proper Posture- Sitting up or standing straight can control heartburn. A slumped body posture can compress the internal organs including the stomach. An immediate quick fix is to lengthen your spine by gently moving your head towards the ceiling.

  3. Eat Less- Overeating can cause the door between the stomach and food pipe to open, allowing contents to flow back and cause heartburn.

  4. Quick Home Remedies-

    • Drink teaspoonful of baking soda mixed into a glass of water whenever you suffer from heartburn. This is a home remedy that works.

    • Raise your body, if you’re lying down and experience heartburn. Use a pillow to elevate your body waist-up. This will get rid of heartburn fast.

    • Chewing gum can neutralise stomach acid. This is because gum increases saliva which clears off acid in the gut.

  5. Avoid Cigarette Smoke- Smoking, both active and passive are harmful, if you suffer from heartburn.

  6. Over-the-counter Medications- Antacids, H2 blockers, and proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are all effective in treating heartburn. PPIs work by blocking acid production, H2 blockers reduce the amount of acid in your stomach and antacids neutralise stomach acid.

  7. Melatonin- A common sleep–inducing supplement is being investigated as a heartburn remedy.

Always remember to check with your doctor before taking any herbal remedy or supplement for heartburn. This is because supplements can have side effects or can interact with medications you may already be taking.

Common tips to prevent heartburn are to eat at least three hours before bedtime, avoid lying down immediately after eating and staying away from fatty and spicy foods. Maintaining a healthy weight is also key to preventing heartburn. It also helps if you do mild exercise regularly. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Steam inhalation carefully by steam inhaler twice a day for 2-3 days frequent/ continuous cough cold may be because of many reasons like: 1. Any ent problem like dns polyp sinusitis 2.

Dear lybrate-user, aids is immunity deficiency syndrome. The virus attacks the whole body immunity system. Therefore initial symptoms will be always continuous flu and skin symptoms. Aids spread through unprotected sexual intercourse with unknown partner, through blood tranfusion and from pregnant mother to child. Take care.

As you have mentioned that he is looking normal but some time he becomes hyper. At this age child becomes fussy some time which is not unusual. This may be due to not fulfilling his desire which could have been done in his early age out of too much affection and love and at his indication with out making him to speak, this may be reason of his not speaking well. If you don't find the reason for your son, pls consult pediatrician or psychiatrist.

What are the symptoms of over masturbation. And how often should I masturbate like once in a week?
Is that fine?
And ...
Twice per week is good. Some of the after- effects of masturbation are: a. The nervous system is affected the most. B. Besides the heart, the digestive system, the urinary system as well as the other systems are adversely affected and consequently the whole body becomes the museum of diseases with profound weakness. C. The eyes become sunken, the cheek bones protrude and there is a black rim round the eyes. D. Continuous headache and backache. E. Dizziness and loss of memory. F. Palpitation of heart on lightest exertion. G. Nervousness. H. Unable to perform any heavy physical or mental work. I. The person dislikes any company and activities and rather likes to sit in seclusion and suffers from weakness. J. All the senses are impaired. K. Vision becomes dim, the tongue begins to stammer and ears tend to become deaf etc. L. Lastly t. B. Or insanity or some other serious disease catch hold of the victim to lead his life to a close. M. Impotency/ erectile dysfunction / premature ejaculation, reduced penis size, hardness etc therefore, young men are advised to consult a qualified and honest homoeopathic practitioner for his expert advice and effective treatment instead of wasting his money with quacks. Further, those young men who are or have been engaged in the regular habits of masturbation should not ignore the necessity to consult the qualified homoeopaths to avoid sexual embarrassment at the time of marriage. Homoeopathic treatment for taking away the habit of masturbation and removing its bad effects. Consult for homoepathic treatment without side effects recommend me by clicking on recommend option and leave feedback.
