Oral Sex

Oral sex involves using the mouth, including the lips, tongue, and teeth, to stimulate a sexual partner's genitals (i.e., his or her external reproductive organs). It often involves kissing, licking, sucking, nibbling, and blowing.

Oral sex is performed by heterosexual couples, by men who have sex with men (MSM), and by women who have sex with women (WSW). When oral sex is performed on a male, it is called fellatio (pronounced fĕl-ā’-shē-ō) and when it's performed on a femaile, it is called cunnilingus (pronounced kŭn-ĭ-lĭn-gŭs).

Fellatio involves using the mouth to stimulate the penis and scrotum. Cunnilingus involves using the mouth to stimulate the vulva, the clitoris, and the vaginal opening. Oral sex that involves the anus is called analingus (pronounced ān-ă- lĭn-gŭs).

Oral sex is an important part of many healthy sexual relationships; however, as with other sexual behaviors, it is important to practice safer oral sex to reduce the risk for sexually transmitted disease (STD) and HIV/AIDS.

Safer oral sex practices involve the following:

Avoid oral sex when there are open sores (e.g., cold sores), cuts, or broken skin in the mouth or the genital area

Avoid oral sex when one partner has an active sexually transmitted infection (e.g., genital herpes, genital warts)

Wait at least 30 minutes after brushing the teeth, flossing the teeth, or having dental work (including dental cleanings) before performing oral sex (brushing, flossing, and dental cleanings can cause gum irritation and bleeding)

Wear a latex condom (flavored condoms are available), female condom, or a dental dam (flat, latex barrier worn in the mouth)

Withdraw the penis from the sexual partner's mouth prior to ejaculation

Oral sex between consenting sexual partners often is extremely pleasurable and satisfying. In fact, for many women, cunnilingus provides just the right amount of stimulation to produce orgasm. Oral sex does not carry a risk for pregnancy.

Open communication is an important part of any sexual relationship, including relationships that involve oral sex. Many men and women enjoy performing and receiving oral sex, but serious problems can develop in the relationship if one partner enjoys oral sex and the other does not. Sex therapists can help couples resolve a number of sexual issues, including issues involving oral sex.

Dear user. I can understand. You have a psychological behavior disorder named transvestism. Transvestite is a person, typically a man, who derives pleasure from dressing in clothes primarily associated with the opposite sex. This can be cleared with the help of repeated counseling and cognitive behavior therapy. Take care.

How masturbation affects health and how to overcome the nasty habit?

MBBS

How masturbation affects health and how to overcome the nasty habit?

One drop of semen is equal to about 40 drops of blood,

Masturbation is like taking a razor and slashing the wrist,
One should avoid masturbation or any illicit sex activity. Imagine how much weakness and reduction of work efficiency can masturbation cause! Sex other than for procreation and within marriage is illicit sex activity, so masturbation comes under illicit sex.

To avoid illicit sex and the nasty habit of masturbation :

1) Eating less in night,

2) Avoid non-vegetarian foods

3) Avoid intoxicants like tobacco,alcohol

4) Avoid onions and garlic which are aphrodisiacs and bind to lust and masturbation.

5) Take fruits, vegetables and drink hot cup of cow's milk every night

6) Avoid foods which are too pungent, spicy, oily, bitter because such foods cause misery and disease

7) Read nice books based on simple living high thinking and make your life successful

You should be very careful and determined to stop this nasty habit as soon as possible as it can cause many problems physically, mentally, socially etc

The truth is sometimes harsh but if taken positively, it can ultimately lead to happiness and success. The truth is in the oldest and fully dependable Vedic texts, that by illicit sex activity, one takes the risk of becoming an animal in next life.

Hope this helps to win over the nasty habit of illicit sex and masturbation.

Hello, Hearing is not believing. All natural foods are safe. Conception is not guaranteed by feeding practices, one has to understand that. The ovum quality is hormone dependent and not food dependent.

How Cheese is Beneficial For You?

Eating a piece of cheese after a meal helps in pulling away some of the plaque and leftover tiny food particles from meals. And since it contains calcium, it adds to the health of teeth and bones as well.

If a women’s menstrual cycle varies from 26days to 31days cycle, The shortest cycle (26days) minus18days=8th day. The longest cycle (31days) minus 10days=21st day Thus, 8th to 21st day of each cycle counting from first day of menstrual period is considered as fertile period.

After pregnancy is safe to take bestova 100 mg capsule, it has any side affect to baby growth or pregnancy.
It is taken to avoid accidental pregnancy, but it has got no role if you are already pregnant, to my opinion it is better to avoid these kind of medicines.

Ovulation Process

Hello to everybody. I am Dr Vandana Hegde. I am practising reproductive medicines in the Hegde Medical Centre from the last 10 years.

As I had explained the entire cycle. Two important things are there for the couple to plan pregnancy

One is the Ovulation time. When the ovulation happens, the female eggs that releases out. Its life is approximately 24 hours. And the male's sperm, once the ejaculation happens, its life span is 3-5 days upto the maximum of 7 days. So for couples to plan fertility naturally, it is important to conceive during the period of female ovulation time. And now ideally the female ovulation happen around the 14th day, it is best for the couple to plan intercourse atlreast 3days prior to the ovulation time. So, if they are ovualating on 14th day, so they can start planning the intercourse on around 10th day and upto a period of 16th day. Ideally, intercourse beyonf the period of Ovulation does not help the couples in conceiving. So, it is always better to plan before the ovulation time. Alternate intercourse is much better than having a daily intercourse during the ovulation time.

Now, coming to the Evaluation of Fertility.

When a couple comes to us when they are unable to conceive a child naturally even after one year. Then we do certain basic things as I have mentioned that it is very important to fid out that how the egg is finally to form an embryo. Yu need egg from the female partner and sperm from the male partner which are diffused internally. So what is important is the normal sperm and a normal tube in the uterus. So we do assessment in that order. So ideally we get the male partner 7 testing time to see the sperm count, the sperm motality and the sperm morphology. The sperms should be genetically fit to give a healthy child. So this is assist by doing semen analysis where the male partner will give the semen sample for about 3-4 days. And this semen sample is examined under the micrscope where the assessment is done on the basis of count, mortality and Morphology. If the semen criteria is normal then we evaluate the female partner.

Now the female partner, if she has regular cycle, we assume that the ovulation is happening normally. But there are certain girls who has irregular periods. Some have early periods and sme have quite delayed cycle. Now, what is the main issue here is Ovulation. Probably they are not ovulating around the 14th day. But there are 2 disfunctions.

  • One is anovulatory, there are certain girls whoch are not ovulating at all. There is no egg formation, there is no ovulation. Now this criteria of girls manage in a different way.
  • Now there are other type of girls, who are probably having a shorter cycle, they are ovulating very early.

Now, we need to differentiate between these two types. The whole management depends upon correcting these abnormality.

Now, coming to the other part of the tubes. Once the sperm is there and the egg is there, one should have patent fallopian tube for them to meet. So, ideally what we do is, when the couple comes to us, we evaluate the spem parameters, the female ovum parameters and then we do a time intercourse for them.

We start basic tracking of the follicle growth. The best thing is the follicle is seen in the ultrasound reports. So the basic ultrasound is done initially to diagnose. If the female uterus, the ovaries are normal then they should not be ahving any fiberoids and ovarian cyst. So Fiberoids are basically tumours in the uterus which can prevent implantation of the embryo and there may be some ovarian cyst which may be preventing normal ovulation and there are other cyst which require surgical removal. We do basic ultrasound scan to roll out all other major thing and then proceed to Folliculat tracking.

Follicular tracking is seen on the scan. Though the egg can not be seen on the scan so follicles can be seen. So, when the couple ccomes to us in initial part, we track the follicle growth and this is the time, the female is ovulating and we give them the dates to meet. This is done on the monthly basis for atleast 2-3 cycles. Now, inspite of tracking natural cycle follicular growth and at the time intercourse if the couple is not able to conceive then we go for other evaluations. Like, is the tube open? Is the uterine cavity normal?

So there are tests to check if the fallopian tubes are open. Now it is very important for the tube to open because all the activities are happening inside the tube. so there is a test called "Hysterosalpingographie", where the die is pushed through the uterine end. This die is travelling around the cavity and coming into the tubes and then comes out.

All this is recorded in teh X-ay film. This film records this passage of the dia nd we find out the tubal blocks. If the tube is blocked then the egg and the sperm do not meet. So there comes fertility issues.

We do other assessments also like Diagnosis hysteroscopy and laparoscopy for infertility. So this is a surgical process which we do when couples are not able to conceive even after 6 months of fertility planning.

There are small tumours in the cavity which can prevent embryo from Implanting and these are absolutely necessary to be removed if the couple is not conceiving with these.

And the other things we diagnose is the laparoscopy in which we put the camera inside to record if te tube and ovary are in normal position and HYsteroscopy is a process done under the anesthesia only. Then we proceed with further treatment with fertility planning.
