In fact it us calculated with the menustration cycle usually it is 28 days so safe period is a week before due date of menustration snd and a week after menustration start how it differ if cycle days are different. Better used contraceptives. Any wrong calculation may cause conception which often happens.

Hi, My wife had problems in MC which was supposed to come on 5/6 nov but it was not so proper and had pain in lower stomach hardly 1-2 drops in a day. Then she got a test with pregnancy kit and found positive. She doesn't have any other symptoms of pregnancy rather than having pain in lower stomach only. Please reply that the kit was absolutely right or it may due to some other reason. Do I need to do that test again? One more thing hemoglobin test which was done 1 month back had only 7.5mg in the age of 24yrs. Thanks in advance.

Pl check thyroid and prolactin levels as well, before going for pcos treatment. If your insulin levels are high, you will benefit with diet, exercise and Metformin. Reduce/stop sugar and sweets and workout for 60 mins daily. Other symptoms in pcos apart from weight gain are acne, body hair, voice getting heavier, darkening of skin around the creases, etc. If you get these symptoms they indicate insulin resistance and along with multiple follicular cysts in the ovaries and delayed cycles pcos may very well be present irrespective of your body weight.

Dealing with Less Libido in Women

MD - General Medicine
Sexologist, Nashik
Dealing with Less Libido in Women

 

According to contemporary medical studies, loss of sexual desire is more common in women than in men. As many as 3 in 10 women have reduced or limited sexual interest in any kind of sexual activity. While the medical term for this problem is Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder (HSDD), it is generally understood as a loss of libido.

There are multiple factors that contribute to this problem including psychiatric or physical disorders, relationship issues, hormonal disorders etc. Let us look at the causes of this disorder at length:

1. Medical Disorders:


a) There are conditions such as endometriosis, fibroids and thyroid disorders that may have a negative impact on the sexual drive of a woman.

b) Certain medicines such as antidepressants, oral contraceptives, and medicines that lower blood pressure may also negatively impact the sexual drive in women.

2. Hormonal Disorders:

a) Dryness of the vagina and pain during sexual intercourse may affect sexual drive both mentally and physically.

b) After menopause, drop in the count of testosterone hormone also affects sexual drive which can result in loss of libido.

c) With advancing age, the level of androgens decrease, and hence results in a lack of sexual desire.

3. Lifestyle Disorders:

a) In some of the cases, lack of emotional support in a relationship plays a significant role in the loss of libido. Post baby 'coolness' may also act as a driving force for loss in libido.

b) In today's era, changing lifestyle is drastically affecting our lives. Following an unhealthy lifestyle may result in increased weight that may affect self-image, and indirectly may also affect the sexual desire.

c) Stress and job, family pressure and exhaustion may also influence sexual desire of a woman.

4. Psychological factors

a) Increasing cases of depression, anxiety, frustration, stress is also an important cause of loss of libido in the contemporary society.

b) After childbirth, new moms tend to suffer from lack of sleep, insufficient lubrication of the vagina and exhaustion, which may affect her sexual desire.

The first and foremost step towards dealing with it is to make your partner understand your problem. Then, it is important to consult a doctor to find out the underlying cause, thereafter, treatment of the cause can normalize the condition. Since there are multiple causes of the problem, there are different ways by which the loss of libido can be easily managed and treated. Some of them are discussed below:

1. Treatment of Hormonal Disorders: The doctors will suitably treat problems like thyroids or recommend surgical treatment for fibroids to manage HSSD.

2. Change in Medications: Since some of the medications are responsible for the lack of libido, the doctors will replace the medications to reverse this lack.

3. Addressing the psychological factors: Your doctor will either arrange for suitable psychiatric sessions or ask your partner to coordinate mutually.

4. Sex Therapy/Relationship Counseling or Testosterone Therapy: While sex therapy or relationship counseling brings back the interest by effectively counseling the individual, Testosterone therapy involves off-label usage of testosterone hormone since it is not recommended by FDA.

Proper treatment and consulting a medical expert can reverse this disorder efficiently. So, talk about the problem more openly to seek proper guidance and cure. You can also submit your queries or seek for our advice in detail by writing to us.

Dear user. SEXUAL INTERCOURSE WITH PREGNANT WOMEN is not advisable during the first three months and the last three months of pregnancy. You can have sexual intercourse during the middle three months of pregnancy but only after permission from your gynecologist. Take care.

I am 27 years old. My son is in the end of the 7th month now. He usually sucks milk only from right breast not at all on my left. So milk production is very less at my left side. Now I am not feeding On from my left, I feed only on the right side. Will this create any health issues to me? What I have to do now?

General Physician, Chandigarh
Milk production in your left breast will stop ultimately if the child is not suckling from it you should encourage him and put him on it again otherwise later on their can be some difference in the size of both breasts

I had unprotected sex on third day after periods Wat are the chances of pregnancy.

I had unprotected sex on third day after periods Wat are the chances of pregnancy.
If I understand, you are asking if you could be pregnant from unprotected sex 3 days after your period ended? If so, then absolutely yes. Women have been known to ovulate during their periods, so if you are asking if you could be pregnant from sex 3 days into your period--yes to that also, but much more unlikely. As for the suggestion to go to the doctor.

If your cycles are regular, the first and often the only test needed is husbands semen analysis. If that is normal, you can try for 3-6 months by the most fertile period method. If still not successful, you will need a laparoscopy or hsg.

Proteins in urine can happen when their high bp during pregnancy. After delivery as bp comes back to normal, proteins in urine also stop. So need not do anything. Just get her urine sample checked once again.

Consume Buttermilk instead of morning bed-tea

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Faridabad
Consume Buttermilk instead of morning bed-tea
First thing in the morning take one glass of fresh buttermilk mixed with roasted jeera (cumin) and crushed dry coriander (dhaniya) leaves along with slight salt on empty stomach instead of bed-tea. This would strengthen your intestines (gut) and boosting up your body immunity to fight various infections and may life style disorders.
Please note that the buttermilk should not be sour and very cold in temperature.
