Missed or late periods happen for many reasons other than pregnancy. Common causes can range from hormonal imbalances to serious medical conditions. There are also two times in a woman's life when it's totally normal for her period to be irregular: when it first begins, and when menopause. Stress Stress can throw off your hormones, change your daily routine, and even affect the part of your brain responsible for regulating your period — your hypothalamus. Over time, stress can lead to illness or sudden weight gain or loss, all of which can impact your cycle. If you think stress might be throwing off your period, try practicing relaxation techniques and making lifestyle changes. Adding more exercise to your regimen may help get you back on track. Low Body Weight Women with eating disorders, such as anorexia or bulimia, may experience missed periods. Weighing 10 percent below what’s considered a normal range for your height can change the way your body functions and stop ovulation. Getting treatment for your eating disorder and putting on weight in a healthy way can return your cycle to normal. Obesity Just as low body weight can cause hormonal changes, so can being overweight. Your doctor will recommend a diet and exercise plan if they determine that obesity is a factor in your late or missed periods. Polycystic Ovary Symptom (PCOS) PCOS is a condition that causes the body to produce more of the male hormone, androgen. Cysts form on the ovaries as a result of this hormone imbalance. This can make ovulation irregular or stop it altogether. Other hormones, such as insulin, can also get out of balance, due to insulin resistance, which is associated with PCOS. Treatment of PCOS focuses on relieving symptoms. Your doctor may prescribe birth control or other medication to help regulate your cycle. Thyroid Issues An overactive or underactive thyroid gland could also be the cause of late or missed periods. The thyroid regulates your body’s metabolism, so hormone levels can be affected as well. Thyroid issues can usually be treated with medication. After treatment, your period will likely return to normal. Your doctor can properly diagnose the reason for your late or missed period and discuss your treatment options. Keep a record of changes in your cycle as well as other health changes to show your doctor. This will help them make a diagnosis. Contact a doctor right away if you have unusually heavy bleeding, a fever, severe pain, nausea and vomiting, or bleeding that lasts longer than seven days.

Are You Ready for IVF?

MBBS, FIAGES-MInimal Access Surgery
IVF Specialist, Kota
Are You Ready for IVF?

One of the major milestones in a woman’s life is the entry into motherhood. For most women, when this does not happen in the natural logical sequence of things, there is anxiety and lot of pressure from family and friends.

However, with advancements now, there are options like intrauterine insemination and in vitro fertilisation (IUI and IVF) available, which can help increase the chances of conception and pregnancy. IVF is where the egg is retrieved from the woman’s womb, fertilised externally and then transplanted back into the uterus where it grows to full term. However, there are always unanswered questions like how long to wait before going for IVF, is it the right procedure for me, etc.

Read on to know to find answers to some of these.

  1. Maternal age: As a woman reaches 35 and a man reaches 40, the fertility rates drop significantly. The chances that a woman at 35 will conceive is about 20%, which goes down to 5% if the woman is 40. However, this rate can be significantly increased by using IVF. The quality of the egg would gradually deteriorate, and so if a woman is nearing 40, it is better to consider IVF as the ovarian reserve would be optimal with IVF.
  2. Failed intrauterine insemination: In couples who have problems with the sperm reaching the uterus, intrauterine insemination (IUI) is first attempted. However, if 3 or more attempts of fail, it is time to consider IVF.
  3. Duration of inability to conceive: While some couples conceive quite promptly in a month or two, most take about 6 to 8 months of unprotected sex to conceive. Therefore, IVF can be an option if you are failing to conceive even after a year. Less than a year, don’t fret. Take it easy and it might just do the trick.
  4. Medical health: Both the partner’s medical health should be taken into account. Lifestyle changes like smoking, alcohol abuse, drug abuse should be considered, which can account for poor sexual performance and therefore lead to an inability to conceive. Health conditions like diabetes and heart disease can also lead to infertility. Hypothyroidism in women is another thing that must be ruled out, as it often leads to an inability to conceive.
  5. Sexual problems with the partner: One of the first things to do before going for IVF is to check that the male does not have any issues. Be it erection issues or ejaculation issues or sperm issues, they need to be ruled out. Sperm quality, quantity, and motility have to be analysed, and if they are optimal, IVF can be considered. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an IVF Specialist.

अश्लील फिल्म देखने के हैं बहुत सारे नुकसान जो आप नहीं जानते!

अश्लील फिल्म देखने के हैं बहुत सारे नुकसान जो आप नहीं जानते!

अश्लील फिल्म देखने के हैं बहुत सारे नुकसान जो आप नहीं जानते!

 ऐसे बहुत सारे लोग हैं जो अंतरंग संबंधों का आनंद पोर्न देखने के बाद लेते हैं हालांकि सरकार ने 850 से अधिक पोर्न साइट बैन करने की बात कही है। सोशल मीडिया में पोर्न साइट बंद करने की बात वायरल हो रही हैं हालांकि इस बारे में लोगों की अपनी-अपनी राय है।  वैसे अब तो पोर्न देखना आम सी बात हो गई है लेकिन आज भी लोगों के मन में यह सवाल उठता है कि पोर्न देखना बुरा हैं या अच्छा। शायद लोगों को इस बात की जानकारी नहीं कि बहुत ज्यादा पोर्न देखने से आपकी सेक्स लाइफ और सेहत दोनों प्रभावित हो सकती हैं। 
कई रिसर्च कहती हैं कि पोर्न देखने के फायदे हैं तो कई रिसर्च इसके बुरे प्रभावों के बारे में बताती हैं। साथ ही एक सवाल और भी उठता है कि क्या पोर्न देखने से सेक्स क्षमता कम होती है। कई लोगों के लिए तो यह एक हानिरहित व्याकुलता है। 
वैसे आज हम आपको पोर्न देखने से लाइफ पर होने वाले बुरे असर के बारे में बताएंगेः

1. दिमाग का सिकुड़ना
एक रिसर्च के अनुसार, जो मर्द बहुत ज्यादा पोर्नोग्राफी देखते हैं उनका दिमाग सिकुड़ जाता है और उनकी सैक्सुयल संवेदनाएं भी कम हो जाती है। रिसर्च में तो यह भी दिखाया गया है कि रोजाना पोर्न देखने से शारीरिक नुकसान भी होता है हालांकि यह बात पूरी तरह से साबित नहीं हो पाई है लेकिन जिन लोगों के दिमाग का स्ट्रेटम छोटा होता है उन्हें पोर्न देखने का नुकसान अधिक होता है।

2. असंतुष्टि 
पॉर्न मॉडल्स का कमाल का फिगर और सुंदरता काफी हद तक मेकअप, कॉस्मेटिक सर्जरी और फोटोशॉप वगैरह पर निर्भर रहते हैं। लेकिन पॉर्न देखने वाले भी निजी जिंदगी में वोही पाना और करना चाहते हैं जो वे पोर्न में देखते हैं, जिस कारण उन्हें सेक्स में सैटिस्फेक्शन नहीं होती। वह अपने पार्टनर से खुश नहीं रहते। उनके दिल दिमाग में यह बात आती है कि उनका पार्टनर उतना सुंदर और आकर्षक नहीं है।

3. कामोत्तेजना पर बुरा असर पड़ता है
अगर तो दोनों पार्टनर बैठकर एक साथ पोर्न देखते हैं तो इस मामले में यह सैक्स का आनंद लेने का एक तरीका हो सकता है लेकिन अगर दोनों में एक पोर्न देखने में बिजी है तो यह संबंध एक त्रिकोण का काम करता है। बहुत सारी महिलाओं का मानना है कि कामोत्तेजना के लिए पोर्न फिल्म का सहार लेने से कामोत्तेजना पर असर पड़ता है।

4. ऑक्सीटोसिन 'लव हार्मोन' में कमी
ऑक्सीटोसिन एक शक्तिशाली 'लव हार्मोन' है जो पुरुष और महिलाओं दोनों को बंधन में बांधने में मदद करता है लेकिन पोर्न फिल्‍मों में जिस तरह से एक्‍टर सेक्स करने में अपने किरदार को निभाते हैं। उस निकटतम बंधन से ऑक्‍सीटोसिन कही खो जाता है।

5. ठीक से नहीं करते फोरप्ले
चुंबन सेक्स का एक अहम हिस्सा है, जिसमें जोड़े काफी मजा लेते हैं। यह बहुत ही अच्छा और करीबी अहसास होता है ले‍किन देखा गया है कि पोर्न की लत वाले लोग किस और फोरप्ले ठीक से नहीं कर पाते हैं।

6. संबंधों में जल्दबाजी
पोर्न उत्तेजित व्‍यक्ति के लिए किस एक बहुत ही धीमी गति से और बहुत अंतरंग होता है इसलिए वह इनसे जुड़ने की बजाए अपना ध्‍यान अलग-अलग तरह की यौन स्थितियों को जल्‍दी-जल्‍दी करने के लिए केंद्रित करता है। इस व्‍यवहार से आप में अपने साथी के प्रति अलगाव की भावना पैदा कर सकता है।

7. दिमाग के विकास पर प्रभाव

न्‍यूरोसाइंटिस्‍ट की मानें तो बहुत ज्‍यादा पोर्न देखने से दिमाग के विकास पर प्रभाव पड़ता है और इससे मनोविकार भी हो सकता है। अगर आप ऐसे व्‍यक्ति के साथ रिश्‍ते में हो तो आपको अंतरंगता के लिए नुकसान का सामना करना पड़ सकता है।

पहली बार सेक्स कर रहे है तो ध्यान रखिये ये बातें

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

पहली बार सेक्स कर रहे है तो ध्यान रखिये ये बातें

 ये रोमांचक और ख़ास भी हो सकता है। तो ज़रूरी है की ये खुशनुमा याद की तरह आपके दिमाग में रहे। इसके लिए आपको क्या करना है?

और ये कैसे सुनिश्चित करें की आपके साथी के लिए भी ये आनंद दायक अनुभव हो? पांच बडे तथ्य के इस लेख में जानिए।

अपने साथी की तरफ भी ध्यान दें!

क्या आपके साथी को भी आपके इस मिलन का मज़ा आ रहा है? उनसे पूछिए की क्या वो आराम से हैं? उनसे प्यार के कुछ शब्द कहिये। कहीं वो आपके सामने बिना कपड़ों के झिझक तो महसूस नहीं कर रहे? तारीफ करिए। क्या आप अपने साथी के मन की बात समझ सकते हैं? कहीं ऐसा तो नहीं की वो इस अगले कदम के लिए अभी तैयार नहीं है?

अपनी और उनकी इच्छाओं को समझें। कहीं ऐसा तो नहीं की अभी आप सेक्स के लिए तैयार नहीं हैं? इस बात का फैसला सिर्फ आप कर सकते हैं। किसी के बहकावे  में आकर कोई फैसला ना करें और ये कदम उस व्यक्ति के साथ उठाएं जिस पर आपको भरोसा हो। सुखद पहले सेक्स अनुभव की कुंजी यही है!

पहले सेक्स से जुडी दस टिप्स 

जल्दबाजी न करें

जल्दबाजी न करें और प्यार के इस रूप के पहले एहसास का लुत्फ़ उठाएं। एक दूसरे को स्पर्श और चुम्बन से उत्तेजित करें। महिला के कामोत्तेजित होने पर उनकी योनि के भीतर गीलापन आता है। ये गीलापन बहुत ज़रूरी है। ये चिकनाई बढ़ता है और सेक्स के दौरान होने वाली पीड़ा को कम करता है।

लगभग तीन चौथाई युवाओं के पहले सेक्स का क्रम सामान ही होता है: चुम्बन, कपड़ों के भीतर हाथ डालकर स्पर्श। परस्पर हस्तमैथुन और आखिर में सेक्स।


पहले सेक्स के बारे में और जानकारी

पहली बार के सेक्स में क्या करना है। शायद आपको इस बात की जानकारी ना हों। अपने साथी की प्रतिक्रिया को परखें। क्या वो कामोत्तेजित होकर आहें भर रहे हैं? क्या वो आपके हाथ को किसी ख़ास जगह निर्देशित कर रहे हैं? ये संकेत हैं की आप सही दिशा में अग्रसर हैं। लेकिन अक्सर ये संकेत स्पष्ट नहीं होते। इसलिए एक दूसरे से बात करना बहुत ज़रूरी है। काफी लोगों को ये बातें भी उत्तेजित कर देती हैं। और याद रखें की सेक्स और मजाक अच्छा मिश्रण है!

वास्तविकता सिनेमा से अलग है

सेक्स शुरुवात से आनंद दायक अनुभव हो ऐसा बिलकुल ज़रूरी नहीं। लिंग के पहली बार प्रवेश करते समय लड़कियां अक्सर पीड़ा महसूस करती हैं। लड़के पहली बार कंडोम पहनने में कठिनाई का सामना करते हैं। इसके बारे में पहले से जानकारी ले लेना बेहतर है। संभव है की लिंग के प्रवेश करते ही या करने से पहले ही वीर्यपतन हो जाये। या फिर इसका विपरीत- हो सकता है की झिझक और घबराहट के कारण लिंग के सख्त होने में कठिनाई हो। और योनि में प्रवेश करने के लिए लिंग का सख्त होना आवश्यक है।

लेकिन पहली बार सेक्स करते समय ये सब होना बिलकुल सामान्य है। इस बारे में बात करें और फिर से प्रयास करें। अगर सब कुछ सही नहीं हो पा रहा तो निराश न हों और फिर से कोशिश करें।

दर्द

महिलाओं के लिए पहली बार का सम्भोग कष्टदायक हो सकता है। इसका कारण है योनि के भीतर की त्वचा में खिंचाव आना। घबराहट के कारण योनि की त्वचा का संकुचित होना भी सामान्य है। अक्सर दर्द का डर लड़कियों को सम्भोग करने से झिझकने का कारण बन जाता है। अगर वो सहेज हों, उत्तेजित हों और योनि के भीतर पर्याप्त गीलापन हो, तो संभव है की बिलकुल भी दर्द न हो। गहरी सांस लीजिये और आराम करिए। जल्दी या ज़बरदस्ती करने की बिकुल ज़रूरत नहीं है।

Dear user. TO CAUSE PREGNANCY on a woman, sperm should be ejaculated inside the vagina or fresh sperm should be inseminated inside the vagina with some means during the fertility period of the woman. There are many determinants of pregnancy. You should be sexually matured. Your partner should be sexually matured. The period of your partner should be in the fertile stage. Her egg and your sperm cells should healthy enough. Then her uterus should be capable to get conceived. If all these were satisfied, the pregnancy could be a result. In the given case, there are less chances of pregnancy. Take care.

Reasons for Pain During Sex

M.A. (Scholar), BHMS
Sexologist, Mumbai
Reasons for Pain During Sex

There are a number of reasons that can cause pain during intercourse. Physical intimacy is one such thing that requires your physical and mental stimulation in order to create a satisfactory environment and peak appropriately.

From sexual interest to stimulation, excitement and even sexual peak - there are four distinct stages in the act of sex and sexual intercourse that inevitably follows, until orgasm. So, it is important to be in the right frame emotionally and physically in order for the four phases to progress properly towards sexual climax. Yet, there are a number of reasons that can cause a decline in sexual interest and drive, as well as a less than satisfactory sex life. One of the reasons includes pain that many people, especially women, experience during the act of sex. This is called Intercourse pain or even Dyspareunia. Following are the reasons behind this pain-

  1. Cervical Problems: Many times, problems with the cervix can lead to dryness which can cause pain during intercourse. This may occur due to infections and other such conditions which cause pain during deep penetration.
  2. Uterus Related Problems: There may be problems with the uterus including fibroids and other such growths in the lining which can lead to pain during intercourse. Also, the presence of Endometriosis can also cause pain during such activities. In this condition, the tissue lining usually ends up growing outside the uterus which can cause severe pain and other related symptoms.
  3. Pelvic Inflammatory Disease: This condition is also known as PID. In such cases, the tissue within the pelvic region can get infected to a great extent which causes a variety of painful symptoms and growths including pain during intercourse.
  4. Ectopic Pregnancy: When the fertilised egg develops outside the uterus, it is known as an ectopic pregnancy. In such cases, there may be pain in the region during sexual stimulation and activity.
  5. Vaginal Infections: Pain during sexual intercourse may also be experienced due to vaginal infections and other yeast infections as well as a condition known as Vaginismus which can lead to involuntary twitches and spasms that can arise because of fear of getting hurt.
  6. Lack of Lubrication: Excessive dryness and lack of lubrication, especially during stimulation can lead to pain during intercourse as well, as the opening does not expand or accommodate the male member properly. In such cases, one can use a lubricant.
  7. Stress: Many times, a stressful situation can keep one from enjoying stimulation which creates dryness and pain during intercourse.

Ensure that you see a doctor in case your problem is more than mere occasional pain, as it could also be a side effect of a more serious ailment.

Infertility - 10 Myths & Facts

MBBS, DNB - Obstetrics and Gynecology, DGO
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Infertility - 10 Myths & Facts

There are some commonest misconceptions about infertility, and these misconceptions should be eliminated as soon as possible so that the actual facts can be known. There are many online sites where you can find detailed information on the scientific explanations regarding infertility, and you can follow them.

List of myths and facts regarding infertility:

1.Myth: The menstrual cycle of a woman is for 28 days.
Fact: Normal cycle ranges between 21-36 days.

2.Myth: A woman can have pregnancy on the day one of menstrual cycle.
Fact: The released eggs remain viable for almost 12-14 hours, and a woman can get pregnant after an intercourse done two-days after ovulation and five-days before ovulation.

3.Myth: Infertility occurs due to stress.
Fact: Ovulation can surely get delayed due to hormone suppression, but infertility does not occur due to stress.

4.Myth: Sperms stay active for few hours.
Fact: Sperms stay alive at least for five days.

5.Myth: Men with a higher sexual-drive will have a normal sperm-count.
Fact: No relation is there in between fertility and virility. Sometimes, it has been found that men having a higher sex-drive do not produce sperms.

6.Myth: Women have to wait for three months to conceive after stopping the usage of contraceptive pills.
Fact: As soon as a woman stops pill usage, hormonal levels go back to normal condition, as a result of which ovulation begins immediately.

7.Myth: Only females have infertility troubles.
Fact: Both women and men suffer from infertility troubles as per the current scientific studies.

8.Myth: Ovulation occurs in a woman on the 14th day of menstrual cycle.
Fact: Ovulation can be calculated by counting 14 days backwards from the past menstrual cycle's last day.

9.Myth: Daily sex can increase conceiving chances.
Fact: During ovulation, having sex each day, especially in between 12-16th day of the cycle can be the best timing.

10.Myth: Fertility troubles occur at 35.
Fact: Peak fertility timing in a woman's life is 20, and this might continue until late 30s. Fertility troubles might even arrive at a younger age. With age, conception chances get declined, especially after 35. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.

3 Ways To Improve Sexual Desire!

3 Ways To Improve Sexual Desire!

Today, there is no disease that cannot be cured. Be it related to any part of the body, medications and doctors can come to your rescue immediately. Similarly, low sex drive is also curable. It is a medical condition, caused due to various factors and can be treated under the proper guidance of a doctor. The condition is known as Inhibited Sexual Desire (ISD). A person suffering from ISD exhibits only one symptom: low sexual desire. A person suffering from ISD refuses to engage in sexual activities with anyone. It has been observed that they neither start nor respond to anyone’s sexual move or overtures. It is a common problem faced by the new age couples in the metro cities.

ISD can be of two different types: primary and secondary. If the patient has never developed sexual desire in his or her lifetime, the condition is primary. The secondary condition occurs when a person began a relationship with the opposite sex partner with normal drive but later gave up the interest towards sexual activities.

Sometimes, patients also develop situational ISD due to stress ad strains in a relationship. The patient may have sexual desire towards others and be disinterested with his or her partner. Whatever may be the condition, medical guidance by a trained and experienced doctor is a must. Here’s how your doctor can help you in gaining back your interest in sexual activities:

1. Counseling: A doctor can treat ISD by counseling. It has been found that many couples first need marriage counselling to improve their relationship first. The training will help couples in learning how to express their love and affection towards each other and respect each other’s emotions and feelings. The couples should also know how to vent their anger and resolve problems and differences in their conjugal life. The sexual counselling helps couple to learn how to carry out their sexual activities in an interesting manner. The doctor then may prescribe you (in case of males) some drugs to activate your sex life.

2. Hormone Therapy: A woman’s sex drive depends on the influence of sex hormones, especially estrogen. Doctor may give small doses of estrogen to the woman patient by prescribing vaginal cream or any skin patch to increase blood flow to her private part, increasing its sensitivity.

3. Lifestyle Changes: A doctor can help you by advising certain lifestyle changes that are adversely impacting your sex life. The doctor is able to find out the activities or events in your daily life—by interacting with you—that are responsible for sexual aversion. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Sexologist.

Myth and Fact About Ayurveda

Myth and Fact About Ayurveda

Generally it is considered as a ‘herbal medicine’ or folk medicine or belief system or traditional medicine or Alternative system or native medicine.
The notion that ayurveda prescribes only medicines of herbal origin is totally baseless though it is true that Herbs are major source of vast majority of medicines. Ayurveda prescribes mineral products like gold, silver, 
Diamond, copper, iron, sulphur, alum, mica, zinc, lead, tin and so on after thorough purification, trituration And turning them to bhasmas which have not been proved yet as harmful. Apart from these minerals, many 
Animal products like ghee, butter, animals urine, horns and skin, flesh –mutton, coral, pearl, conch etc. Are Also used as medicines wherever necessary. Therefore it is not merely herbal medicine.
