Unprotected intercourse with an infected individual can definitely result in you also getting infected with the same. Unprotected intercourse is therefore not recommended. Please get yourself tested for STI soon and for HIV after 6 months to be sure.

Wife's mc is not proper. What to do?
Menstrual irregularities can be caused by a variety of conditions, including pregnancy, hormonal imbalances, infections, malignancies, diseases, trauma, and certain medications. Polycystic ovarian syndrome also leads to irregular ovulation and an irregular menstrual cycle. Seeing a doctor in person really is the most important thing you can do to get your menstrual cycle regular again! and, the standard health advice always applies: to balance your hormones and regulate your menstrual cycle, get regular exercise (but do not exercise excessively), eat a healthy diet, get the sleep your body needs, and deal with stress in healthy ways. And, if you are taking prescription medication, find out if it affects your hormones (which affects your period).

ALways test tube baby is not needed. PCOS women may have difficulty in having baby but with treatment they respond well and majority of them conceive. The main treatment is drugs along with weight control by diet and exercise.

No 100% there is no chance of pregnancy with the act you described. To get pregnant you need to have semen deposited in the vagina on the ovulation day. Even if you have proper sex in the future you should use ipill then. Now it is not needed.

Yes it is safe day. But make one correction only 1st to 7th day and 18th to 28th days are safe for unprotected sex and from 8th to 16th day the chances of getting pregnant are maximum. Sometimes due to less haemoglobin levels in blood it happens. Other common reason of this issue is, some girls develop a cystic growth on the ovaries due to some hormonal imbalence. This can be detected only by ultra sonography of her abdomen and pelvis.

I am twenty one years old girls my period does not come for five days and not in time. What can I do and which medicine is to be taken?

It is known that pre coital secretions can contain sperm. Hence there is always a possibility although very small. If the girl misses her periods please do a pregnancy test. Also if it is within 72 hours of unprotected sex please have some emergency contraception tablets.

Ear Ache in Adults

DNB (ENT), MS - ENT
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist
Ask Free Question
Ear aches are a very painful condition, which tends to affect mostly children. However, adults can be affected by ear aches as well, which can disrupt their routines and be quite painful. Let's have a look at some of the aspects of ear aches in adults.

Causes of ar aches in adults
There are many causes for ear aches in adults and it may vary from one person to another. However some general causes of ear aches in adults are listed below:

Infections within the body: If you have a throat infection or cold, it could trigger an ear ache as a side effect. Treating the underlying problems will, thus reduce the ear ache or it will go on its own when the symptoms of the cold subside.
Ear canal injury: Adults are most often guilty of putting in sharp objects to clean their ear canal, which may result in an injury and also lead to infections. These injuries can also be infected and cause fluid discharge and ear aches.
Blockages caused by the regular use of ear buds: Using ear buds or other sharp objects to clean the ear will only result in pushing the ear wax further into the ear. This will result in blockages of the ear canal and cause ear aches.
Dental problems: Certain dental problems, such as wisdom tooth growth can result in problems. Even gum disorders have been known to create ear aches in adults.
Jaw pain and facial pain: Jaw pain and even facial nerve pain has been known to affect ears and cause aches as well.

Symptoms that may accompany ear aches
Depending on what the causes of the ear aches are, the symptoms may vary. Still, let's have a look at some of the known common symptoms of ear aches in adults:

Irritability and lack of focus: Ear aches may initially manifest as a headache and make the person irritable.
Poor sleep: Fluids may build up within the body and thus cause issues while sleeping as the fluids may shift from one area to another.
Ear drainage: If in case fluids build up, they may drain from your ear, which could vary anywhere within yellow to dark brown colour. This may even indicate that your eardrum is ruptured.
Hearing problems: Fluid buildup or other underlying causes may also cause hearing difficulties.
Fever: Sometimes, fever may run as high as 104 degree C due the very infections, which may be causing the ear ache.

Whatever may be the cause, if you have ear aches for sustained periods without underlying reasons, you should visit your doctor immediately to get it checked out, so that appropriate treatment can start quickly.

With swallowing semen no one can get pregnant and no one gets fat. To get pregnant, sufficient quantity of semen should be deposited in the vagina. She is 100% not pregnant as she already got her menses.

Severe Pain During Sex - Know the Reasons Behind it

DNB (Psychiatry), DPM, MBBS
Sexologist
Ask Free Question
Severe pain during intercourse causes difficulty in a relationship in both partners. Sometimes a sustained occurrence of pain might be an indication of some serious medical dysfunction. As such, consult a doctor as soon as the pain arises. Contrary to popular beliefs, sexual pain can occur in both male and female.

In female, the reasons behind the painful sexual intercourse might be:

Vaginismus, a condition when the vaginal muscles tighten up mainly due to anxiety or fear and causes significant pain with a tearing sensation.

The pain can arise due to vaginal yeast infections or any form of sexually transmitted disease or pelvic inflammatory diseases.

A severe injury in the vagina during childbirth or any other accident and psychological stress can also cause severe pain during sex.

Sometimes, menopause or uterine problems (formation of fibroids in the uterus) can also cause pain.

Cyst formation in the ovary or endometriosis (when the inner tissue lining of the uterus tends to grow outside) can also cause severe pain during intercourse.

Among men:

Some men can experience pain during intercourse because of allergy to the fluids of the vagina or the chemical content of certain contraceptives.

You can experience pain because of undiagnosed sexually transmitted diseases like herpes or gonorrhea

The pain might also occur due to urinary tract infections or side effects from certain medications.

Severe pain just a few moments before ejaculation can be a result of inflammation of the prostate glands and should be immediately diagnosed as it might be a signal of prostate cancer.

For treating pain during sex in female, you should opt for the following procedures-

If the pain is caused due to vaginal dryness after menopause, you should consider the application of prescribed lubricants or jellies to reduce the pain.

If the pain occurs due to severe anxiety or stress, sex therapy can help you improve physical intimacy.

If there are other symptoms like severe bleeding or irregular periods in addition to the pain, a visit to the physician is recommended.

Quite similarly in men

If the pain occurs due to severe anxiety or stress, sex therapy can help you improve physical intimacy.

If the pain results from side effects of certain medications, you should try changing your prescribed medication after doctor s suggestion.

In extreme cases, the doctors might suggest hormone replacement surgery.

DIET FOR MENSES
Normal menstrual cycles range from every 21 to 35 days, according to the Cleveland Clinic, and most women's periods last four to seven days. Unusually short, lengthy, light, heavy, frequent, infrequent or painful periods can derive from stress, dieting, birth control pills and medical conditions, such as fibroids, polycystic ovary syndrome, endometriosis and, less frequently, cancer. Overexercise and low body weight can cause your cycle to stop altogether. In addition to seeking any necessary medical treatment, emphasize certain foods within a healthy diet to help regulate your cycle.

Whole Grains
Whole grains provide valuable amounts of fiber, protein and B vitamins -- nutrients that improve hormonal balance and reduce symptoms of heavy menstruation, according to Dr. Christiane Northrup, a physician and women's health expert. High-glycemic carbohydrate sources, such as white bread and sweets, on the other hand, can worsen your symptoms. They can also impede blood sugar control, interfering with positive energy levels and moods. Limit these foods and emphasize hearty whole grains, such as quinoa, barley, brown rice, oats and popcorn, instead.

Oily fish, such as salmon, mackerel, lake trout and herring, provide rich amounts of protein and healthy fats, which are also important for hormonal balance and normalized menstruation, says Northrup. As top sources of omega-3 fats, oily fish reduce inflammation, which plays a role in pain and bloating, and may help minimize menstrual cramps. For best results, replace protein sources rich in saturated fat, such as red meat, dark-meat poultry and cheeses, with baked, grilled or steamed fish. Saturated fats increase inflammation


Flaxseeds for Fiber
(also u can take flax oil of vestige)
Flaxseeds are top plant sources of omega-3 fats and valuable sources of fiber. They also contain lignans -- natural compounds that can help balance hormones, including estrogen, according to a "Nutrition & Food Sciences" report published in 2012. Add ground flaxseed to other healthy foods, such as smoothies or whole-grain muffins, or have flaxseed flakes for a breakfast rich in omega-3s, fiber and protein. Fortified cereals also supply iron, which is important to replenish if you've experienced heavy menstrual bleeding. Your body loses iron through blood, which can lead to anemia.

Fruits and Vegetables
Getting plenty of the antioxidants, vitamin C and beta-carotene is also important for improved hormonal balance and menstrual health, says Northrup. Fruits and vegetables provide significant amounts of both nutrients, along with fiber. Avoid fruit juices and fruits with added sweeteners, which have a high glycemic index. Instead, opt for fresh or frozen, unsweetened fruits and vegetables. For beta-carotene, eat sweet potatoes, carrots, cantaloupe, mango and sweet peppers. Top vitamin C sources include red bell peppers, citrus fruits, broccoli, strawberries and brussels sprouts.
