If your issue is about lack of concentration, that may because of boredom and monitony of same things for which you may have lost interest in studies. Hence you need to change the pattern of studying or take a break. You may want to check if there are other problems in your life that are bothering you and may be of more concern whcih is why you may be unable to concentrate. Take breaks while studying. Give yourself some credit which you complete a goal in study whcih will keep you motivated. Try doing some physical exercise to keep your mind and body fresh. Change time of studies. If you used to study at night. Start studying in the morning from now. Do not study when in your bed ir dinning table. Have a proper chair to study. Sitting on the same bed that you sit may make you feel sleepy or tired as your emotions are connected to that same place.

Hi lybrate-user, its ok do not worry about it, its curable. Its called premature ejaculation. Premature ejaculation, or ejaculating before you or your partner wanted you to, is a common problem that strikes most men at some point in their lives. Several factors can influence when ejaculation occurs, but it can be controlled with some forethought or, in extreme cases, medical intervention. Try edging. Edging, or orgasm control, is the practice of maintaining a high level of sexual arousal while delaying ejaculation. It takes practice, but it gets easier over time. Here are two methods recommended by the national institutes of health to stop premature ejaculation: stop-and-start method: have intercourse as usual until you feel yourself coming uncomfortably close to orgasm. Immediately and abruptly cease all stimulation for 30 seconds, then start again. Repeat this pattern until you're ready to ejaculate. Squeeze method: have intercourse as usual until you feel like orgasm is seconds away. Abruptly stop other stimulation and gently squeeze your thumb and forefinger around the part of the penis where the glans meets the shaft (or your partner could do this). After squeezing for a few seconds, pause all stimulation for another 30 seconds before resuming intercourse. Repeat this pattern until you're ready to ejaculate. Try this, this a good method to begin with. Do not lose hope consult me for therapy.

You do appear to be having symptoms of depression. Would recommend that you have an assessment by a psychiatrist as it can improve with appropriate treatment. You are likely to require medicines and/or counselling depending upon your assessment. Best of luck.

Non Consummation of Marriage (Married, Yet Unmarried)

MD, BHMS
Sexologist, Mumbai
Non Consummation of Marriage (Married, Yet Unmarried)

A marriage can go stale due to several reasons. If you blindly believe in the maxim" marriages are made in heaven" you are still living inside a bubble. The gamut of difficulties faced in making a marriage work can leave newlyweds in complete awe. A marriage doesn't tiptoe on a tightrope between success and failure; it is more of a road taken towards happiness.

If your marriage doesn't fill you with contentment or you can sense the lack of bliss with your partner there are reasons to worry. Apart from the regular tiffs and grave contradictions, a married couple could also bicker or part ways due to the nonconsummation of their marriage. At times only one person has to experience the toll of little sexual intimacy while at other times, both individuals suffer from its absence.

A newly wed couple fails to have sex for 3 main reasons

1. Man's problem: erectile dysfunction (failure to get or maintain an erection) and very early ejaculation before vaginal insertion.

2. Woman's problem: either tight hymen or severe fear of pain & bleeding

3. Position difficulties: surprisingly, many couples find it difficult to take a proper position for sex as many do not have proper orientation of each other's body too.

Probable reasons behind nonconsummation of a marriage:

1. Extreme exhaustion: being very tired or exhausted can make you sexually inactive. One might be stressed due to work pressure. You or your partner could be tired of balancing professional and personal life. All these factors could lead to nonconsummation of marriage.

2. Real or apparent rejection: in many cases, only one person makes efforts to consummate the marriage. The partner may not directly decline your advances, but might not show much passion. This kind of passive response makes the other person feel rejected. You tend to avoid communication of such feelings and that complicates your situation. Along with the lack of intercourse, there arises a lack of love as well.

3. Any kind of substance abuse: addiction can deter you from performing in bed. Alcohol or drug abuse can reduce your sexual capabilities. There is also a range of medications leading to erectile dysfunction or vaginal dryness as a side effect. Having a physical inadequacy can make you recede from the idea of consummation.

4. Lack of emotional attachment: two people might have gotten married under societal or familial pressure. They may not feel love for each other or might not have anything in common to strike a chord of friendship. Lack of emotional attachment can prohibit the consummation of your marriage.

5. Sexual trauma: a person might have experienced instances of sexual abuse in childhood or at some point of time in life. Such instances scar them forever; the scars could be deep enough to come in the way of intercourse after marriage.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.

Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear , Your headache could be due to stress. Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the ?fight-or-flight? response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as ?acute stress,? can be exciting?it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or ?chronic stress,? can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. I need to know, what are the causes with which you are stressed? Once you know the reason, you will be able to adjust with it with some tips and tricks. Please let me know the details. Take care.

Yes lybrate-user, tobacco increases anxiety since it alerts the brain directly within seconds of its use. Moreover you may need to use tobacco often and repeatedly. There are many other health hazards due to tobacco. Aatif, you are young. Stopping tobacco at this age is comparatively less difficult than at later age. Motivate yourself not to use tobacco. If you are still anxious, take relaxation therapy or anxiolytic tablets from a clinical psychologist or psychiatrist.

Are anti depressants safe to take? And can they have an effect on our appetite or other side effects?
Dear Sunit, There are no drug without any side effect. One has to weigh the effect with the side effect. There are different type of antidepressants. Some like mirtadep may increase appetite and armod may decrease appetite. Each drugs side effects are different. The same drug also causes different side effect at different dose. Interaction with other drugs also cause or nullify side effects. What is your weight - 1 kg?

Dear lybrateuser, - Everyone sometime or the other faces some tragedy in life wherein there is a loss of our near & dear one, but we have to come over it & not feel guilty about anything as we try to give the best for the person or the pet - keep yourself busy in your studies or job, also any other activity which you like as keeping your mind busy reduces the pain & thoughts over a period of time & also the guilt feeling hies away when we do positive & productive things - help some needy or stray pet as a tribute to your dog & you will feel better.

Hello, sometimes people get stressed with their life and they don't know how to overcome the stress. They need support from their family members. You need to make sure that you don't get angry at your wife. Try and talk to her in a polite way. She might not want to talk to you about the problems, but she will eventually talk to you. Take out time everyday to ask about her day and the problems she faced today. Over a period of time you will see improvement in her aggression.
