Hi Doctor, I am a boy of 22 years! Since childhood I was very coward and may be because of lack of outdoor activities I fell into homosexuality Trust me, I hate that stuff and want to come out from that under any circumstances. I am never into ass sex. Also I have stopped having sex in real. Thing with me is that I only gets attracted towards hot looking guys. How can I stop it? Also, my parents are looking forward for my marriage to a girl. I am very much worried about my & her life. I cannot share this with anyone around & so it falls me into depression day-by-day. I had been to a prostitute for testing my manhood, where I really failed. This made me feel very depressed. My dick just slept down when it was in her vagina without any ejaculation. Is there any medicine which can at least satisfy a girl and give her sexual pleasure? Any help/advise from you will be appreciated!

Dear lybrate user, marriage is not just about satisfying your girl sexually. Sex is one essential part of married life, but there is much more in marriage beyond sex. Firstly, I think it would be very important for you to understand your own sexuality. If you are getting attracted towards guys then you might be a gay. To assess yourself for this, you need to consult a counsellor/sexologist, who will help you to understand your sexual inclination and the causes and consequences. Secondly, please understand that we all have our own sexual preferences. Being gay is not a crime, though in india, it is not accepted in the eyes of law. Instead of trying to change or denying your sexual preference, try to understand your real feelings and accept them. If you remain in denial, you wil be dissatisfied. If you marry any girl, without really understanding your sexual preferences, you will not be able to make her happy. Going to prostitues for trying your" manhood" can be very dangerous. Instead, take some professional help. The counsellor/sexologist will help you to understand your needs and will also help you to deal with your parental pressure. Please do not take decision to get married under parental pressure. Seek professional at the earliest.

I am not against" looking good" neither am I against cosmetic surgeries but I would suggest you to reconsider your decision. If your face looks disfigured you may surely go ahead, but if it is just a minor deviation from normal it does not make much of a difference to your personality as such. By the way, you have all sorts of cosmetic surgeons and skin specialists available who can give you relevant options. Most of the cosmetic surgeries are irreversible. There are instances of surgeries that did not go up to the clients expectations or even were against expectations. So look before you leap. Take care.

Sir, I am suffering from stammering. Can you suggest me what should I do for that.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Stammering is typically recognised by a tense struggle to get words out. This makes it different from the normal non-fluency we all experience which includes hesitations and repetitions. Commonly it involves repeating or prolonging sounds or words, or getting stuck without any sound (silent blocking). Sometimes people put in extra sounds or words. Often people lose eye contact. Some people who stammer talk their way round difficult words so that you may not realise they stammer at all. This avoidance of words, and avoidance of speaking in some or many situations, is an important aspect of stammering. Stammering varies tremendously from person to person and is highly variable for the person who stammers who may be fluent one minute and struggling to speak the next. Get an mri brain and eeg with a psychiatrist evaluation.

It is false case. Even though police but it is decided by the court. So it is better to meet good reputed lawyer. He will fight on behalf of you. It takes time. First take bail order from the court. Later slowly produce your evidence in the court of law. But difficulties it is common. Court case and police case everything creates unnecessary tension and worriedness. So much pressure from out side and inside it is common. In this stage patience and courage is important. Matured person like you should go to depressive thoughts. Meet professional lawyers and police ask the clarification about the case. In that you will get some relief escaping from the problem involving other activities it will not give any rest to your mind. We try our level to save him to come out of the problem. We fight our rights and justification of law. God will decided the final result. Go to temples pray god. Spend most of the with your family members and friends. Share your feelings with who close to you. Do not depress. Be happy all the time. Best of the luck.

I am having an habit of smoking from past 3 years back what is my present health condition and how should I decrease that habit.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Best age to stop smoking is before 40, In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

If you try to forget something, it's memory becomes stronger, because while trying to forget it you are actually revising it! ignore the thoughts and feelings associated with the event. Do not talk about it with people. Distract yourself with another thought or memory if it recurs. The memory will gradually fade away. Once it stops bothering you, you can analyze and come to terms with your past in a healthy way. It is impossible to completely erase a memory from the brain.

Habitual smoking or chain smoking increases the Tar content in our lungs thus decreasing our lungs Air spaces called Alveolar sacs.Due to this decrease in air spaces,we cant exert much as our lungs cant carry more volumes of air due to decreased lung spaces.This leads to shortness of breath when we exert thus loosing our stamina.So to increase stamina,the first and foremost thing a chain smoker should do is ti quit smoking cigrattes and start doing morning cardio exercises or breathing exercises to increase lung spaces.It sounds very easy but my friend it is not that easy as it requires a lot of Determination and will power because you will have to face a lot of challenges while quitting this habit and you must have to be head strong.Once you quit your smoking habit,the things will automatically becomes easy for you.

Hi, I would like to seek help regarding my preset situation. I am 30 years old. My parents were looking for an alliance for me from 4 years. I could not find a suitable alliance for me. I was not doing well in my job also. I am good at work but can not handle office politics but I continued working only to support my family. Couple of months back I got engaged to guy. It so happened when I saw his photo I could not like him, later when I saw him through skype also I did not like. But my parents convinced me every time it is not right rejecting proposals now I have to take a call as I am running out of age. So when the guy came to India we met him, again I could not like him, I was totally confused. Sometimes I could feel it is ok I can go ahead with marriage later I felt noo. The Guy was well educated and financially sound as well. All kind of thoughts I could not control. I wanted to ignore everything and go ahead with marriage but the pain I was suffering did not allow me. I consulted a doctor he said I am suffering from depression and anxiety, I was put on tablets. We had to call off the engagement. Now after couple of months I have become alright. I am not working. Now my parents want me to settle down. The very thought of marriage upsets me. I think of the stage I suffered. Can you please suggest what I can do? I was not a person like this I was an individual capable of taking decision but not I am in this stage. Thanks!

If you are having depression or anxiety it is not your fault at all. Having anticipatory anxiety for marriage is understandable but there are ways of dealing with it. Your previous engagement had lots of uncertainties as you do not know the person well and so your anxiety is justified. If you feel better now then you can definitely go ahead for marriage. If you still feel very anxious and that refrains you from dealing with the decision of marriage then consult your psychiatrist and discuss it in details.

Stress Management

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Alappuzha
Stress Management

The pace of modern life makes stress management a necessary skill for everyone. Many people juggle multiple responsibilities, work, home life, caregiving, and relationships. Learning to identify problems and implement solutions is the key to successful stress reduction.

The first step in successful stress relief is deciding to make stress management an ongoing goal, and to monitor your stress level.

Once you start monitoring your stress level, the next step is identifying your stress triggers. When or under what situations do you experience the most stress? some causes of stress are easy to identify, such as job pressures, relationship problems or financial difficulties. But daily hassles and demands, such as commuting, arranging child care or being overcommitted at work, also can contribute to your stress level.

Positive events also can be stressful. If you got married, started a new job and bought a new house in the same year, you could have a high-stress level. While negative events, in general, are more stressful, be sure to also assess positive changes in your life.

Once you've identified your stress triggers, you can start thinking about strategies for dealing with them. Identifying what aspect of the situation you can control is a good starting point.

For example, if you have a difficult time falling asleep because you're stressed out, the solution may be as easy as turning off the tv when the evening news is too distressing. Other times, such as high demands at work or when a loved one is ill, you may only be able to change how you react to the situation.

And don't feel like you have to figure it out all on your own. Seek help and support from family and friends. You may want to ask them what stress-relief techniques have worked well for them.

And many people benefit from the daily practice of stress-reduction techniques, such as deep breathing, massage, tai chi or yoga. Many people manage stress through practicing mindfulness in meditation or being in nature.

And remember to maintain a healthy lifestyle to help manage stress - eat a healthy diet, exercise regularly and get enough sleep. Having a healthy lifestyle will help you manage periods of high stress.

Stress won't disappear from your life. And stress management isn't an overnight cure. But with ongoing practice and incorporation of resiliency into your lifestyle, you can learn to manage your stress level and increase your ability to cope with life's challenges.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. At your age, memory problems like amnesia, dementia or alzheimer's are not common. Many young people do complain having problems with memory. These problems are due to either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test.

Dear lybrate-user, Of course it is your decision to take whatever treatment you wish to take. If you consult psychiatrists, they will prescribe according to their expertise based on evidences of many research work. You can take decision to go to psychiatrist or not. You can even take a decision whether to take her/his treatment or not. You can even take a decision of stopping treatment also. You are old enough and have the sanity to use your discretion. You can stop Pexep and try natural methods. If it does not work, please remember that psychiatrists and their treatment will always come for your help. The same doctor also will accept you, since most doctors know that some persons don't comply with treatment.

My age is 23. My mind is not working in sometimes. I forgot something easily. What happened to my brain. What I do to improve my brain power. Which doctor can I consult.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Your brain is like a muscle. You need to exercise it regularly. The exciting thing is that you don’t have to be a millionaire to increase your brain capacity. All you need to do is invest a little time to regularly train your brain. So what can you do? Here are 10 simple ways you can increase your brain power and improve your intelligence! 1. Do something new When you experience something ‘new’ you actually ‘stimulate’ your brain! Don’t get stuck in a rut doing the same old things – the only way to change the structure of your brain is to do something new. This creates new neural pathways, increasing your intelligence. You could take a new route to work, try a new recipe for dinner, or even a new form of exercise – mix it up! 2. Exercise regularly It’s been proven that regular exercise helps to increase brain function and enhances neurogenesis. This means that every time you exercise you are creating new brain cells! Get off the couch and get moving! Your brain will thank you for it :) 3. Train your memory How often do you hear people say “I wish I had a better memory?’ Yet no-one does anything about this! If you discipline yourself to memorise phone numbers and other important numbers (passport, credit card, insurance, driving license) you will start to see a marked improvement in your memory 4. Be curious Instead of taking everything at face value, get into the habit of questioning everyday things/products, services that you come into contact with. By being ‘curious’ and questioning everything, you force your brain to innovate & create new ideas. Curiosity may have killed that cat, more importantly it created super important things like electricity and computers! 5. Think positive Stress & anxiety kill existing brain neurons and also stop new neurons from being created. Research has shown that positive thinking, especially in the future tense, speeds up the creation of cells and dramatically reduces stress & anxiety. Try and get a handle on negative thoughts and make an effort to replace them with positive ones. 6. Eat healthy Our diets have a HUGE impact on brain function. Our brains consume over 20% of all nutrients & oxygen that we consume – so remember to feed your brain with the good stuff! (i.e. Fresh fruit and veg & plenty of OMEGA 3 oils found in oily fish)
