As such there is no problem. If she has taken contraceptives, then its obvious to have disturbance in menstrual cycle.

My wife's periods are not regular for the last 2-3 months and are often delayed by 6-7 days. Please suggest.

Hello, it's very normal to get irregular or missed periods at your age as it is the menopausal age, your menses are going to get stopped gradually and slowly. So, don't worry, relax! medication: as such no need to take any medication, but I would suggest you to take this medicine as it contains calcium & iron - five phos. 6x/ thrice daily/ 1month. Take more of milk, milk products, green veggies, seasonal fruits, salads, etc.

Vagina too tight The vagina itself is never too small to accommodate a penis – remember that its walls are stretchy enough to allow a full-sized baby to pass along it. But it can seem too small for sex if the muscles at its entrance go into a spasm when your partner tries to insert his penis. This is a fairly rare condition called vaginismus. Some women with vaginismus can insert a tampon without any problem, but others find that trying to insert anything – a tampon, a finger or a penis – makes the muscles contract. Women with vaginismus often avoid having cervical smears, because they think it will be painful or impossible. Very occasionally, the penis cannot be inserted because the hymen (which is the membrane at the entrance to the vagina) is unusually tough, but this is very rare indeed. How the woman feels. Vaginismus is a very distressing condition. It is very painful if your partner attempts to push his way in, and you may feel wary that he may do this. You may also have feelings of anger, guilt and inadequacy, and fear that your partner may leave you. Some women withdraw from all physical contact – even holding hands – in case it leads to sex. How the partner feels. Partners are usually confused and worried. Your partner will hate the idea of causing you any pain. He may think that his sexual technique is at fault. What causes vaginismus? It is really a deep-rooted phobia of penetration, and perhaps of pregnancy or childbirth. The reason is different for each woman: it can result from some unresolved sexual conflict, from sexual abuse or from a belief that sexual activity is undesirable. You may have had a painful vaginal condition that has left you with a conditioned fear of sex. Vaginismus should not be confused with frigidity; women with vaginismus are often sexually responsive, but can not tolerate penetration. Treatment. Vaginismus can be helped. Relate, the counselling organization, reports that of 3693 women seen over a 2-year period, 80% improved with therapy. Psychosexual counselling. The therapy is not at all frightening. You will be taught how to relax your vaginal muscles and eventually to insert a small tampon. In due course you will learn to insert larger tampons. If you have a partner, the therapist will start by telling you not to attempt sex. Instead, you will be encouraged to resume non-genital physical contact in very small steps, such as holding hands, sitting close together or putting an arm round each other. Quite late in the programme, you and your partner will be shown how you can insert his penis yourself, as if it were a tampon; he lies on his back and is not allowed to move at this stage. Only at the very end of the therapy programme will you be encouraged to have proper sex.

What are the disadvantages of having O -ve blood group, being a female?
Those who are negative ideally should marry negative males however not very important, only if they have positive blood transfusion or by pregnancy exposed to positive baby (possible with husband being positive) then with increasing number of pregnancy there are increasing chances of baby getting some problems. However there are methods to do reports and some injections to prevent. Best is take care only to avoid positive blood transfusion and any injection see that disposable one time needle and syringe used. Rest you may forget.

What are the ways to avoid pregnancy after sex? Can we sex at the time of menstruation period?
Avoiding pregnancy after sex is certainlly not advisable as you have to take hormones to disturb the pregnancy it's always better to use contraceptives before sex and sex at the time of menstruation is though not harmful but it's definitely not hygienic.

3 Undisclosed Facts About Breastfeeding, This World Breastfeeding Week

3 lesser known facts about breastfeeding

Breastfeeding is advocated to be the only best thing for a newborn. But while it is the most natural thing to do, it isn't an easy process. It is challenging and full of surprises. Researches throw up facts that surprise all. For example: breastfeeding is like a shield against breast cancer.
Here are 3 such lesser known facts:

1. The milk contents - ever wondered what your baby thinks of the taste of your breast milk. Well, the fact is that your breast milk is tailor-made for your baby. From the taste to its benefits, it is a full course meal. When the feeding begins, the milk is watery. This is to quench the baby's thirst. Then the consistency thickens and the milk becomes higher in fat content. This meets your baby's electrolyte needs as well as energy requirement. Want to know something more amazing? through the day, your breasts milk's properties keep changing. By evening, it has higher sedating properties and helps the baby's body meet nutritional demands. This should explain that satisfied smile babies have when they sleep right after their feeds.
2. Variation in milk production - it is okay and natural if you feel you are lopsided. Many breastfeeding mothers feel that one breast is heavier than the other since it produces more milk. This is possible and happens a lot. Our body is not perfectly symmetrical between left and right. This applies to breasts as well and shouldn't be worried about. Because of this, milk production can also vary between both the breasts.
3. It causes weightloss - some women are known to lose their pregnancy weight by breastfeeding. Yes, this is also a lesser known fact. Breast milk happens to be a high calorie food which the baby literally sucks off the mother's body. This leads to shrinking of the mother's body.

If your so called married partner is affected with diseases, you may also have the same upon having unprotected sex with her. Symptoms depend upon the disease she has. Diseases range from gonorrhea, fungal infections, syphilis or even aids. These diseases are difficult to be identified upon symptoms only and need blood investigations.
