I suffer from extremely painful periods. On consulting the doctors everyone's said that it happens to everybody but let me clear it that mine is extremely painful. Is it endometriosis?

No.. it may not be.. It is called Dysmenorrhea.. and it does not happen to everyone... And for your reference there is a cure.. in homoeopathic but if the medicine is selected after careful investigation and detailed case study... I don't believe that OTC medicine will give any relief... So my advise is to take a proper consultation for permanent results.. You may start taking Abroma Augusta Q tds..

Hi, I got married on 8th July 2016, we are planning kid after 3 year. I am 26 and my wife is also of 26, My question is How can I plan a healthy kid and painless pregnancy of my wife? We are non vegetarian, I am a smoker but she don't. Do we need any type of medical tests before we proceed for children. What should be in our diet for full sperm and eggs. I know this is not a good question to be asked, because no any husband think for their children before pregnancy.

Hi, I think you should have a healthy diet which may contain lots of fruits and green vegetables. In non vegetarian diet, you can have more of fish and less of red meat. But all these things are for your own health. Whenever you plan for pregnancy, just meet a doctor for preconceptional counselling. You should quit smoking as it may lead to semen problems and erectile dysfunction also. Hope I have answered your question. If you have any other query I will be happy to help.

5 Foods To Avoid Before Having Sex

Vaidya Visharad
Sexologist, Narnaul
5 Foods To Avoid Before Having Sex
These 5 surprise foods lower your libido and dampen your sex drive.1. Coffee- Too much caffeine can cause stress and hormonal imbalances.2. Artificial Sweeteners- Artificial sweeteners contain aspartame, an ingredient that causes trouble for your body’s happy hormone (serotonin), without which your mood and libido tends to suffer.3. Dairy products- Overconsumption of dairy products like cheese induces toxins that interfere with the production of the natural, mood uplifting hormones.4. Crispy delights- A pack of chips by your bedside is enough to lower your libido.5. Corn flakes- Did you know that Dr John Harvey Kellogg, made this cereal as a part of a bland diet to lower people’s sex drive? It is best to stay away from corn flakes before going to bed.

Mother, Wife Sister - Common Health Mistakes Most Women Make!

Mother, Wife Sister - Common Health Mistakes Most Women Make!
Common Health Mistakes Women Make

Women handle a lot, from work to family and society to their own health. They also try to eat better foods, lead a healthy lifestyle and exercise regularly as well. But despite trying their best, most women tend to make a few mistakes when it comes to their health. These mistakes are small and not too noticeable, but they can be quite harmful in the long run.

Make them aware about these common health mistakes now!

1. Not Drinking enough water: Ask any woman and she will probably know that she must drink 7-8 glasses of water every day. But most women don’t actually follow the rule and commit this sinful mistake. Drinking less water will make you dehydrated and leave you feeling weak. At the same time, it can make them prone to infections, including UTI and may make them cranky. Women must incorporate water-rich foods in their daily diet and ensure drinking more water.

2. Skipping Meals: Sometimes, women are just too busy to eat a meal and think that can cover up with a bigger lunch or bigger dinner later. Skipping meals can slow down body’s metabolism and cause overeating. This in turn can result in weight-gain, not to forget a variety of serious diseases. Eating more whole foods, beans, seeds, fruits and vegetables revs up metabolism.

3. Not eating enough protein: A lot of women are overweight these days because they make the common mistake of skipping protein. In their attempt to stay slimmer or lose weight, they avoid eating vegetarian or non-vegetarian sources of protein, which can reduce muscle mass and make one overweight. Plus, when women don’t eat protein, they tend to gorge on carbohydrates, which can increase their blood sugar spike and result in more hunger throughout the day.

4. Not getting enough sleep: Majority of women in the country fail to get enough sleep. Handling a variety of responsibilities and roles may result in getting interrupted and lesser sleep, which can cause premature ageing. It is recommended that adults, including men should get a minimum of 7 hours of sleep every single day.

5. Not enough calcium: Not having enough calcium in your diet may lead to osteoporosis. Women must not only avoid skipping milk products and foods that are otherwise rich in calcium, but also get enough calcium through supplements once they cross 35 years of age.

Hi Swati weight gain you had could be due to hormonal imbalance. Please first check for hormonal profile and afterwords start diet low in carbohydrates high in protein, rich in fruits and vegetables. Avoid oily, junk food, bakery products.

If you are having normal periods every month then it is unlikely you are pregnant. However you can get a urine pregnancy test done if in doubt. If the discharge happens throughout the month and it is bad smelling or associated with itching you will need a course of antibiotics.

She had taken an abortion pill but her bleeding isn't stopping, it's been 13 days she had been bleeding, isn't an side affects of that medicine or normal situation?

Dear lybrate user, there are chances that she has partly aborted. Some portion may still be remaining in the uterus. Prolonged bleeding after taking abortion pill is not the side effect of medicine. Get ultrasound of the lower abdomen done to exclude incomplete abortion.

Hello lybrate User- Oily skin and pimples in this age suggest of improper liver functioning which happens due improper food intake and schedule. - Avoid spicy, sour, salty foods, fast foods, fried foods and non-vegetarian diet. - Go to bed before 10 pm and wake up before 6: 30 am and go for running. - Start herbal blood purifiers. - Your problem will be solved in few weeks.

Can anyone tell me, after how many days should I do sex to get pregnant, and how many times should I do?

Can anyone tell me, after how many days should I do sex to get pregnant, and how many times should I do?
Dear Lybrate user For pregnancy you should count 11th, 12th, 13th and 14th day from the 1st day of menstrual cycle. And do sex in this 4 days. There are more chances of pregnancy because this is the ovulation period in female.

A stray sperm can occasional cause pregnancy so always use an effective contraception. In your case condoms should be a good choice. Be safe always use a condom. For your pain visit an gynecologist.

To be able to help you I need to know the exact results and tests you have done so far. You will need a thyroid function test, prolactin, testosterone, usg pelvis as well as hsg done if not already done. Also its best to get your husband's semen analysis done to rule out any male factors before you start any fertility treatment.

My girlfriend is having something like Vagismus as per symptoms. Few months ago, penetration was so easier during sex. Now I am unable to penetrate like there is no vaginal opening but a week ago we did intercourse after a gap of one month to check whether vaginal opening is there or not. It was there but she was in pain during intercourse. Also I got dot size red spots on Penis after sex which goes away in few days. But it comes back again after intercourse.

Dyspareunia is pain prior to, during, or after, sexual intercourse. Dyspareunia is more common in women but can affect either sex. Many women will experience dyspareunia at some time in their life. Sometimes a medial or physical etiology may not be obvious and psychosocial factors also can play an important role. In men, dyspareunia can be related to an allergic reaction to a condom or spermicidal. An infection of the prostate or prostatitis may also cause pain. If a female partner has a vaginal infection or dryness, the male can experience discomfort during intercourse. Dyspareunia can have several different causes. For instance, Vaginismus is a “spasm” or contractions of the muscles surrounding the vagina. Women with Vaginismus have pain with insertion of tampons as well as with penile penetration. Homeopathy is one of the most popular holistic systems of medicine. The selection of remedy is based upon the theory of individualization and symptoms similarity by using holistic approach. This is the only way through which a state of complete health can be regained by removing all the sign and symptoms from which the patient is suffering. The aim of homeopathy is not only to treat dyspareunia but to address its underlying cause and individual susceptibility. As far as therapeutic medication is concerned, several remedies are available to cure dyspareunia that can be selected on the basis of cause, sensations and modalities of the complaints.  You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance
