When I having sex with my partner I cannot satisfy her fully bcoz I release myself very fast.
Hi. Early discharge / ejaculation may result in unsatisfactory sex for both partners. This can increase the anxiety that may add to the problem. There are many homeopathic remedies that are very effective and powerful in reducing the symptoms and helping those men who have the problem with rapid or premature ejaculation without side effects but I need detailed case history to find out best suitable medicine for you. Homoepathic treatment depends on cause of problem. Generally 3 months course required to cure completely. You can buy premature ejaculation package offered by me at affordable price.

Hello doctor, I am a 30 year old man. Obviously not getting married. And I have not had any physical relation with any female yet. Can you please advice me for first time relation. What precautions I should use? Kindly treat this as a friendly advice.

Whenever you have first time in any relation, if both of you are ready then have more foreplay. If you are married and plan for conceiving then don't use condoms but otherwise you should compulsory use it also always remember if you are doing oral sex then both the partners should be healthy, I mean none of you should be infected.

It Was Just Sex - Advice For Working Through An Affair

It Was Just Sex - Advice For Working Through An Affair

It Was Just Sex - Advice for Working Through an Affair

Many popular country music songs imply that the only suitable ways to get over a broken heart caused by an extramarital affair are (a) taking a baseball bat to his truck, (b) drowning one's sorrows through drinking, or (c) kicking him or her to the curb and never looking back... But in spite of these cynical views, it really is possible to move past an affair without violence, booze or throwing the relationship out the window. Learn more about moving on after an affair and how to start putting the pieces of the relationship back together - as well as why both partners should be tested after an extra-marital affair occurs to maintain their sexual health.

Is there hope after an affair?

While it is true that infidelity does often result in an end to a relationship, many couples are able to work through an affair, either on their own or with the help of a Marriage and Family Therapist. Unfortunately, with all the hurt feelings and hostility, couples may have difficulty having productive conversations on their own and turn to fighting instead. Due to the intense emotions and pain an affair brings up, it is highly recommended that couples working through this issue seek the help of a therapist, as he or she can help to create a safe environment in which to explore these issues. A therapist can help teach effective communication techniques, restore trust, and validate the feelings of both partners while getting to the root cause of the affair.

Keys to moving on

Reestablishing trust: The feelings of deep betrayal, combined with wondering if one can ever trust one's partner again, are some of the most difficult issues to work through. It will likely take a lot of time and healing before the betrayed partner can learn to trust their mate again.
Establishing open, honest communication: Effective, honest communication will be key to establishing trust, as partners need to learn how to speak to each other, and more importantly, listen to each other in order to get past the cheating behavior.
Zero contact with the "other" person: The partner who was the cheater must cut off all communication and interaction with the other person in the affair. Not only can continued contact cause feelings to reemerge, leading to a possibility of restarting the affair, it will be impossible for the betrayed partner to trust that nothing is going on.
Be honest, but respectful: Often times the betrayed person needs to hear about the affair in order to establish closure. The betrayer needs to be honest - don't say it happened one time if it was going on for months. If it comes out that more lies were used to cover up the details, all trust is lost. At the same time, nothing but hurt can be gained from hashing over all the gory details. Whether one is the cheater or was cheated on, just know that nothing but hurt can be gained from finding out that the cheaters once had sex 7 times in one night, which positions they favored, and how good the orgasms were, etc.

Maintaining Sexual Health

Whether it was a one-time thing, or it went on for months, now that the cat is out of the bag, both partners should be tested for sexually transmitted infections. Any time a person engages in sex with a new partner, it is wise for both partners to be tested prior to becoming sexually active. However, if this hasn't taken place, it needs to happen now. Not only will this help restore trust; it will give the partner who was betrayed peace of mind. Remember, even if a person is not symptomatic, he or she may still be infected and able to pass along infections to any and all sexual partners. For men, in particular, getting checked out can ensure that the penis is healthy and free of infection. To further improve the health of the penis, a man can also use a daily penis vitamin cream (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil) which contains nutrients to keep the penis healthy and functioning at its highest capacity.

Opening The Door To Prostate Health And Enlargement Formulas

Opening The Door To Prostate Health and Enlargement Formulas

There is a little birdie that says Prostate Problems no longer affects only men over 40 but younger men as well. This statement is unfortunately true, however, one need not worry because medical science has improved and the years of research have now finally paid off.

We will 'pull the plug' on the bad news about Prostate Cancer and open the doors on ways to improve prostate health. If we understand the purpose of the prostate and the conditions that affect its proper functioning, we will be able to explain the causes, and then find the right formula or treatment for the prognosis. In addition, we will look further into preventative maintenance to keep the prostate healthy for optimum sexual experience. What better place to start our discussion than the bedroom 

The Condition Behind Doors

What happens in the bedroom should stay in the bedroom but sometimes when women are affected by low sexual performances; it is worthwhile discussing outside your private meeting place. Low performance could be the result of the dysfunction of the prostate. The prostate is an organ that expels the semen from the body when men ejaculate. It is found at the start of the urethra and is the size of a walnut, but may become enlarged when inflamed. There are various conditions that can cause prostate malfunction but before we go there, let us close the bedroom door to discuss privately, before more of the secret leaks out.

Mr. Romantic might be experiencing what is called Enlargement of the Prostate. This happens when the prostate is swollen and disrupts the flow of the fluid through the urethra and may trigger multiple symptoms that become complicated if not treated early. One dangerous possible outcome is prostatitis or Prostate Cancer. Anything that stops or slows down the natural expulsion of fluid from the body will lead to other serious complications, not to mention pain and discomfort. But what causes the prostate to grow out of its regular size?

Cause for Concern

The prostate is known to weigh between 20 and 30 grams but when it is inflamed, could weigh as much as 100 grams. Common factors that propagate the enlargement of the prostate are poor dieting and ignoring early warning signals.

Let us look at dieting and habits. One theory is that some of the foods we eat may contain oxidants which contribute to the rapid break down of cells in the prostate. The ability to maintain a proper balance in our hormones; testosterone and estrogen, could also be a factor of this great effect. When we fall short in feeding the prostate with proper nourishment, we are exposed to many conditions that affects the prostate including prostitis, benign prostate hyperplasia, and possible cancer.

The next possible cause could stem from ignoring warning signs. It is always necessary to pay a visit to the doctor if you are a male and approaching 40. Outside of that, once you see obvious signs, it is mandatory that you visit the doctor immediately to have him or her do a prostate exam. Yes, we all know how uncomfortable that procedure is but it's better to be safe than sorry. We will look at these symptoms that are deemed absolutely necessary for a checkup.

Beyond Vagina 101 - Curious But Crucial Facts for Men

For many men, a woman's lady bits present a sense of mystery and wonder (although the same could likely be said for a female getting acquainted with a man's equipment). Even the man who has had plenty of experience with the world down under is sure to have a few questions rolling around. Finally, get the answers to those questions that are too embarrassing to ask a woman, as well tips on how to maintain the male equipment for a healthy penis 24/7 - and better sex.

Why does it make noise during sex?

Known as "queefing," that funny vaginal fart that sometimes slips out occurs due to the combination of arousal and thrusting. As the vagina becomes engorged, it expands slightly in preparation for sex. Combine that with vigorous thrusting, and air that has made its way up there is released with different movements. No need for embarrassment from either party; it is perfectly normal and healthy.

My girlfriend "squirts" during orgasms. Is it pee?

While some women may release small amounts of urine during sex - possibly due to stress incontinence, it sounds like what she is experiencing female ejaculation, because it is being expelled with force from her vagina. Female ejaculation is a fairly rare phenomenon, but it does happen. While the exact composition of the liquid is debated among professionals and researchers, it is thought the liquid may contain some urine along with other bodily fluids. So, there's the answer; she's not peeing during sex - rather, she is she-jaculating!

Why does the vagina smell?

Well, guys, the male genitals are no bunch of roses either, but a slight female odor is perfectly normal. The vagina is self-cleaning and therefore discharges dead skin cells, bacteria and the like in an effort to ward off infection, all of which contribute to the odor. Now, if there is a sudden change in her odor, or it becomes increasingly strong, offensive, or is accompanied by a great deal of discharge it is possible she has an infection such as yeast or bacterial vaginosis - both of which should be checked out and treated by a doc. Otherwise, if a man finds her odor to be a turn-off, she can take a quick shower before sex to freshen up. However, a woman should never use perfumes or other scents to try to mask the smell of her vagina, as those chemicals could very well lead to infection. Using a homemade or commercial douche is also a bad idea, since these can change the pH balance of the vagina and lead to infection, as well.

Is it safe to have sex during a woman's period?

Yes, there is nothing wrong with having sex while a woman is menstruating, so long as she is healthy. If the woman has HIV/AIDS or another blood-borne illness, obviously, this puts her partner at risk due to the direct contact with blood - even with consistent condom use - so sex should be skipped during her time of the month. Not a fan of seeing blood? Try shower sex to stay squeaky clean - and keep the bed sheets clean, too! And of course, make sure she is comfortable with the idea - a woman who is in the throes of menstrual cramps may not be enthusiastic about any below-the-belt action, at least for a day or two.

Keeping the Penis Healthy

Any man who is sexually active should make it a priority to keep his penis healthy. Not only does a healthy tool make for better sex; it also reduces the risk of giving - or getting - an unpleasant infection. Proper penis care goes beyond just soap and water - though that is an obvious place to start. For optimum penis health, men need to take care of their entire body. It is important to eat right, exercise and maintain a healthy weight - after all an unhealthy body leads to an unhealthy sex life as well. Additionally, men interested in maintaining optimum penile health should use a penis health cream (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil) that contains specially formulated nutrients such as L-Arginine to improve the circulation to the penis in order to maximize the delivery of nutrients and oxygen.

Psychological FIrst Aid

Psychological FIrst Aid

We are all well aware about the physical first-aid. The white box with a red cross on top which contains all the necessary things like cotton, band-aid, dettol, etc. required for healing a physical injury and preventing any further injury. However, not many people are aware of a similar concept called Psychological First-Aid which involves humane, supportive and practical help to fellow human beings suffering serious crisis events. The World Health Organization (WHO) had even declared “Psychological First-Aid” as the theme for World Mental Health Day, 2016 which is celebrated every year on 10th October.

What is Psychological First Aid (PFA)?

It is a technique for providing support and care to a person who has just experienced crisis situation like - been involved in or witnessed an accident, terrorist attack, death of a loved one or suicide to help them deal with and recover from the traumatic event. Providing a helping hand in time can prevent the person from getting traumatized, his/her functioning getting disrupted, keep a check on maladaptive coping methods like excessive use of drugs or alcohol, or even taking an extreme step like attempting suicide.

Who can provide PFA?

Usually it is done by mental health professionals, rescue volunteers, disaster management workers but it would be good if teachers, medical practitioners, health care providers and religious organizations also learn this so that the service providing group expands and more people can be professionally assisted in dealing with crisis in an appropriate manner. Anyone who is trained in PFA can provide it and help the affected person function and cope better. 

Themes involved in PFA

  • Provide practical care and support in a non-intrusive manner
  • Assess what the person needs and his/her concerns
  • Help people to address basic needs (eg.- food, water, information)
  • Protect them from any further injury/harm
  • Listen to people but do not pressurize them to talk
  • Comforting people and helping them to feel calm
  • Seek professional help for further assistance if required.

7 Situations That Ruin a Couple's Sex Life and How to Overcome Them

Many times sexuality succumbs negatively when a relationship of couple stabilizes. If the above is added to the coexistence, the problems of the day to day and the arrival of the children, the result may be discouraging. But there are certain measures that can be taken to come out gracefully.

Having a stable, healthy and happy partner relationship is not easy, and sexuality is also part of this challenge, since it is no surprise to anyone that the routine, the monotony and the lack of novelty in the encounter and even the sensations of being with the other, slowly advancing and diminishing sexual desire.

However, this hopeless perspective changes when couples understand that the sexual desire of the onset is transformed over time and when the relationship stabilizes. In this way, sex becomes an aspect that the couple must keep healthy, satisfying and entertaining.

Magdalena Rivera, medical surgeon and sexologist of medical sex Center, delivers a vision and solution for some of the most common challenges that stable couples must face in the sexual arena.

1. Being too tired to have relationships

Fatigue is one of the most common aspects that appear in a stable couple that also coexist. To this, winter can make it difficult due to low temperatures. Now we must also recognize that this does not usually happen at the beginning of a relationship.

With regard to this, the specialist indicates that "at the beginning of the relationship there is a high level of infatuation," so even if there is a high level of activity or the couple is tired, it is so much what happens at the biochemical level, and it is so much novelty, that the same sexual stimulus manages to go through all that. "But once the couple is already stable, the fatigue and routine of daily life begins to rise."

Angry couple Enojada Pareja

"The solution is often not so simple because it involves changing the lifestyle," to find more time available: time to share in pairs, to converse, to go out together, to be without pressure, and it is very probable that in those free times, desire and eroticism emerge again, he adds.

"With so many things to do in the day, the hours of transport," children, there are people who work and study, then there is no time for sexual activity and you do not have to wait until the last minute, at 10 pm when the two are tired, or this can happen, but when you are in full love ", Rivero points out.

Now, another way to shake off all this is to "schedule" between the two or the sexual encounters. "While spontaneity is right, it happens that many times if a space is not programmed for the sexual encounter, that space may not exist." Programming it is a good idea, says the specialist.

2. Sex has ceased to be of interest, it is not priority

Suddenly having sex is not what moves the relationship, in fact, there are thousands of other things that begin to take more importance, such as working, paying bills, paying debts, fulfilling social commitments, solving problems; etc.

Recommended Diet for Heat Stroke

Unani physicians claim that a diet for heat stroke can help prevent the problem to some extent, because dietary recommendations for a heat stroke patient could be quite useful. Undermentioned list is of some of the adjustments one can make in his diet, after a heat stroke.

  • It is essential to include fresh fruits, vegetables and juices in the regular diet to avoid heat related illnesses, especially heat Strokes because dehydration is an important cause behind the incidence of heat Strokes. Water content is high in these items and that’s why they help to keep the body well hydrated.
  • Oranges, pineapples, watermelons, grapefruits, lemons, cantaloupes and similar fruits are very useful in this condition.
  • Drinking plenty of water is also necessary, especially before going out in the sun. It is highly recommended to drink an additional amount of fluids, like fresh juice or an energy drink as it could replenish the levels of water in your body.
  • A part from that onions, mint, cucumber and yogurt should be positively included in the diet to prevent Heat Strokes. Not only due to its cooling effect, but these can also be great for the overall health.
  • It has been observed that low blood sugar can trigger the symptoms of heat Strokes. Add healthy sources of protein to your diet, which mainly include nuts, beans, pulses and olive oil. This will increase blood sugar levels, thereby preventing heat strokes.
  • Up to some extent, peppermint tea and raspberry tea are found to be highly effective in providing relief from these symptoms.

Restricted Diet for Heat Stroke

  • Excessive consumption of salt adversely affects the functioning of normal sweat production, as salt is rich in sodium, and excess sodium could hamper the regular production of sweat in the body which in turn increases the risk of developing this heat illness.
  • Consumption of alcoholic beverages should also be minimized because alcohol is known to increase heat in the body. In addition to this, caffeinated beverages induce frequent urination and cause unnecessary loss of water.
