Dr. Vinod Raina provides answers that are knowledgeable.
How can I increase my sexuality time duration. I lose my sexuality within 5-6 min at the time of sex.
High sex drive and great sexual compatibility with your partner are not the only things required to spice up your sex life. The right attitude and lots of confidence are equally important. Read on to find out how you can boost your confidence between the sheets:
Breathe easy. It’s sex; not rocket science that you have to think too much and plan in advance. Just go with the flow and enjoy the moment. Overthinking will only complicate things and shift your focus away from the action.
Know your body
If you are not comfortable with your body, how will you know your pleasure points? And if you don’t know what makes you happy, how will you know if you are sexually compatible with your partner? It’s all connected, you see!
Communication is key. There’s no two way about it. Ditch the shyness and express your needs (your man expects it from you as well). The right communication will help turn on the heat for sure.
Every woman has her own positives and negatives. Embrace yourself for whoever you are. Comparing yourself with others will take you nowhere and all the good things in bed that could have come your way might just not.
Add lots of foreplay
Foreplay is one of the best ways to steam things up. Lots of foreplay will help you and your partner forge that comfortable bond and dispel those inhibitions. This will eventually lead to a lot of naughty things.
Traditionally, winter is a time for running around throwing snowballs, trying (and failing) to hit the high notes in" all I want for christmas is you. And then creeping inside to deal with our dripping noses and dry throats. For many of us, winter health problems are as much a part of the season as holiday cookies or goofy knit caps. However, while you may be resigned to feeling less than great for the next few months, there are some winter health symptoms that you shouldn't blow off as" just what happens when it gets this cold" — because they could be a sign of a serious problem.
Many of these symptoms might be familiar; perhaps you've experienced them for years, every time the temperature drops. But that doesn't mean they're normal or unavoidable — yes, virginia, it is unusual to have colds on and off from autumn to spring, to have a cough that lasts three months, or to have your fingers go white every time you spend some time in the freezing outdoors. Just because it's normal for you, doesn't mean it's not actually a health concern.
So if any of the six symptoms below strike a chord, get yourself checked out by a doctor — yes, even if you're sure it's not a big deal/ you hate causing a fuss/don't want to bother the doctor/whatever other excuse you've been using to get out of a gp visit. Just go. Your lungs, circulation, immune system or whatever else will thank you.
1. White fingers
If you live in a spectacularly cold area, you're doubtless familiar with the one serious problem that whitened fingertips after exposure to freezing weather can signal: frostbite. But if you habitually suffer from fingers whiter than santa's beard every time you spend some time outdoors, you may have a different problem — a condition called raynaud's syndrome.
Raynaud's syndrome is essentially a malfunctioning of the blood vessels in your extremities. If they're exposed to cold or stress, they'll contract temporarily, restricting the blood flow massively and leading to the syndrome's trademark creepy whiteness. As the blood vessels relax and the blood returns, your fingers will flush and hurt. Raynaud's is pretty common (up to 20 percent of adults worldwide have it), but it's also got some serious possible side effects, including ulcers — so if you're nodding your head in recognition here, hop it to your gp.
2. Flushed cheeks
The winter season is all about pink cheeks, right? what would the season be without flushed-cheek children frolicking and taking sleigh rides? yep, but if you're getting a bit too flushed, you could actually be afflicted with something more serious than festive cheer.
If you've noticed that your flushed cheeks last for a long time or seem to be lingering and sticking around like a sunburn, you may have the beginnings of rosacea, a dermal disease related to the blood vessels in your face. As the name indicates, it shows up as a painful rosiness and redness of the skin, as well as occasional pimples. But if you identify with all these symptoms, don't worry — you're not alone. Up to 10 percent of people in cold countries suffer from rosacea, and there are a host of treatments available, from facial gels to avoiding triggers (coffee is, alas, partially responsible). So even if you feel like it's not making a major dent in your life, you still might want to get your potential rosacea checked out.
When you come in out of the cold weather, do your lungs usually sound like a bellows? wheezing — which typically involves a whistling noise and feeling of restriction when you breathe — isn't actually a normal respiratory reaction to the cold, so if you've started to give a decent impression of a deflating balloon every time you head indoors, you need to see a doctor.
Wheezing can be a sign of many health issues, including bronchial infections, asthma and even allergies. If you're wheezing and you know you won't be able to see a doctor for a while, make sure to at least wrap yourself up very well every time you go outside (particularly around the neck and face), and try not to do exercise in cold air (which, if you have asthma will, can leave you with a wheeze so intense, it may sound like a seal bark).
4. A cough that won't go away
The concept of a" persistent cough" doesn't really hit home until you've actually spent weeks or months with the thing hanging around, interrupting your sleep and making you the most hated person in any movie theater you enter. Coughs are often benign, but it is important to watch how long they last. If they don't clear up in less than two weeks, you may just have lasting irritation in your airways after a cold or could be suffering from an allergy — but your cough might also be pointing to other health conditions.
A prolonged cough may mean that you have developed a bacterial infection in your airways, particularly if you notice that the cough's accompanied by a bit of pain. The four other common causes of prolonged cough, according to harvard research, are a postnasal drip, asthma, acid reflux, or certain blood pressure medications which induce cough — and all of these situations deserve medical attention. And in extremely rare circumstances, a cough that won't go away can also be a sign of lung cancer. So don't feel like you should just wait for it to go away on its own.
5. Extremely dry lips
Dry lips are a constant struggle for most of us in cold weather, but if the problem persists even when you've smothered them in every chapped lip solution known to man, you may actually deal dealing with a more unusual problem: a vitamin a overdose. Women are only supposed to have 700mg of vitamin a per day, and if you're exceeding that, your body may be reacting in some unusual ways.
A vitamin a overdose is known as hypervitaminosis a, and it's not fun: along with dry, cracked lips, your skin and mucus membranes go dry and you may suffer from hair loss. It's most often caused by people taking too many vitamin a supplements (like cod liver oil) and also occurs as a side effect of some heavy-duty acne meds. So if you're concerned, be very sensible when it comes to supplement use and the balance of vitamin a-heavy foods like sweet potato and tuna in your diet.
6. Persistent colds
Long-term vegetarians and vegans will probably be familiar with this one: if your body seems to be completely incapable of recovering from colds, or only lets you feel healthy for a few days before you catch the next one, you might actually have an iron deficiency affecting your immune system. The medical term is iron deficiency anemia, and it leaves your body vulnerable to infections and viral illnesses.
Iron plays a big role in the immune system; it is a necessity for red blood cells, which carry oxygen around the body. If those red blood cells are not working properly, your system gets fatigued and oxygen-starved and can't fight off illness. You can fight this deficiency through upping your consumption of vegetarian-friendly iron-rich foods, like dark leafy green veggies, legumes, and whole grains. And if you aren't a vegetarian, one of the most highly recommended ways to combat iron deficiency anemia is seriously seasonally appropriate: eat dark turkey meat, which has tons of iron. So bring on that christmas lunch early! you just have to have the turkey leg, for medical reasons.
Figs, bananas, and avocados are considered aphrodisiacs that increases blood flow to the genitals and promote a healthy sex life.
If you are hiv-positive, good nutrition can have several benefits. It can:
Improve your overall quality of life by providing nutrients your body needs.
Keep your immune system stronger so you can better fight disease.
Help manage hiv symptoms and complications.
Process medications and help manage their side effects.
The basic principles of nutrition and hiv
The basic principles of healthy eating will also serve you well if you are hiv-positive. These principles include:
Eating a diet high in vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and legumes
Choosing lean, low-fat sources of protein
Limiting sweets, soft drinks, and foods with added sugar
Including proteins, carbohydrates, and a little good fat in all meals and snacks
Here is more specific information to get you started with a healthier eating plan.

How do you get hiv from unprotected sex?
During #unprotected sex, hiv in the bodily fluids of an infected person (blood, semen, vaginal fluid, pre-cum or anal mucus) can pass into the body of their sexual #partner. This can happen through the mucous membranes of the penis, vagina, rectum and sometimes the mouth and throat.
If someone is living with hiv, they are more likely to pass it on to others in the first few months after infection as there are high levels of the #virus in their bodily fluids at this point. 1
Are some types of sex riskier than others?
Most people get hiv by having unprotected vaginal or anal sex. Anal sex is the most risky because the lining of the anus is more delicate than the lining of the vagina and is more easily damaged. Receptive anal sex (bottoming) is riskier than insertive anal sex (topping).
There is a very small chance of getting hiv from unprotected oral sex, but only if the person giving oral sex has mouth ulcers, sores or bleeding gums, or if the person receiving oral sex has been recently infected.
Having multiple sexual partners and/or stis also increases the risk of hiv infection via unprotected sex.
How can I avoid getting hiv from unprotected sex?
Condoms are the most effective way of preventing hiv (and sti) infection via vaginal and anal sex as well as oral sex performed on men. They should be put on before any sexual contact as hiv can be passed on through pre-come, vaginal fluid, and from the anus.
Lubricants, or lube, make sex safer by reducing the risk of vaginal or anal tears caused by dryness or friction. It can also reduce the risk of a condom breaking.
Use water-based lubricants instead of oil-based lubricants (such as vaseline) as oil-based lubricants weaken the latex in condoms and can cause them to break.
A dental dam is a small plastic sheet that can be used to cover the mouth and the vagina or anus to reduce the risk of hiv (and stis) during oral sex.
Pre-exposure prophylaxis (prep)
Prep is antiretroviral drugs taken daily by people at high risk of hiv infection. To prevent sexual transmission of hiv, prep is sometimes recommended for:
Anyone in an ongoing relationship with an hiv-positive partner
Anyone who is sexually active with more than one person, even if they recently tested negative for hiv
Heterosexual men or women who don't use condoms with partners whose hiv status is unknown and are at high risk of hiv infection (e. G. They inject drugs or have bisexual male partners. 6
Prep can provide a high level of protection against hiv, but is most effective when used with condoms. Prep is not available everywhere.
If you think you are at high risk of hiv infection via unprotected sex, talk to a healthcare professional about whether prep is right for you.
Post-exposure prophylaxis (pep)
Pep is the use of antiretroviral drugs after an event that puts you at risk of hiv - such as unprotected sex - to stop hiv from spreading in the body. It must be started within 72 hours of possible exposure.
However, pep is not 100% effective, and should not be viewed as an alternative to condoms.
Your doctor or healthcare worker will advise you on whether you could take pep. Again, pep may not be available where you are.
After exposure to HIV in the workplace (occupational exposure)
Pep is used when people are exposed in the workplace to body fluids that may contain HIV for example, a healthcare worker who accidentally suffers a needle-stick injury.
After exposure to HIV in other settings (non-occupational exposure)
Pep can also be used after a high-risk exposure that is not work-related, such as unprotected sex, a condom breaking during sex, needle sharing or sexual assault.
How much protection does pep provide from HIV infection?
We don't know. Several studies suggest that anti-HIV drugs can reduce the risk of HIV infection if taken within 72 hours of an exposure to HIV and if taken every day for four weeks. The sooner pep is started after an exposure, the more likely it is to work.
We know that pep does not always prevent HIV infection. There are several reports of people becoming infected with HIV despite taking pep medications.
Who should consider taking PEP?
An HIV-negative person who has had a possible high-risk exposure to HIV within the last 72 hours should consider taking PEP.
Not all types of exposure have the same chance of causing HIV infection some are riskier than others. Before taking pep, a person must first discuss their situation with a nurse, doctor or counselor. If the chance of becoming infected with HIV is low, either because it is unlikely that the source person was HIV-positive or because the way they were exposed has a low risk of transmission, pep may not be recommended.
Pep is intended to prevent HIV infection and should not to be used by a person who is HIV-positive. When a person starts pep, an HIV test must be done to determine the person's HIV status. If rapid testing (which gives results within a matter of minutes) is not available, the test result may not be ready for one to two weeks; nevertheless, pep will be started immediately. If the test result is positive, the person will stop taking pep and a doctor will need to decide whether HIV treatment is needed.
HIV treatment is done by antiviral drugs, there are number of antiviral drugs available in the market, usually HIV is treated with combination of drugs, usually two to three drugs are used in treating HIV in initial stage, we can change the combination of drugs according to requirement of the patient. Drugs can be adjusted or increased if there is resistance of HIV in the patient.
There are number of compounds (about 22 in number) which have been formally approved (by the us food and drug administration) for the treatment of HIV infections (aids). According to their point of intervention with the HIV replicative cycle, these compounds can be classified in 5 categories:
1. NRTIs (Nucleoside Reverse Transcriptase Inhibitors): Azidothymidine, Didanosine, Zalcitabine, Stavudine, Lamivudine, Abacavir and Emtricitabine, Tenofovir, administered as its oral pro drug form TDF (Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate)
2. NNRTIs (Non-Nucleoside Reverse Transcriptase Inhibitors): Nevirapine, Delavirdine and Efavirenz
3. PIs (Protease Inhibitors HIV): Saquinavir, Ritonavir, Indinavir, Nelfinavir, Amprenavir, Lopinavir, Atazanavir, Fosamprenavir, Tipranavir and Darunavir
4. FIs (Fusion inhibitors): Enfuvirtide. Starting from the drugs which are currently available for the treatment of aids, numerous combinations could be envisaged. Drug combinations are, in principle, aimed at obtaining synergism between the compounds (reasonably expected if they act by different mechanisms), while reducing the likelihood for drug resistance development. Such anti-HIV drug combination regimes were initiated about 10 years ago and have been generally referred to as haart (for highly active antiretroviral therapy). While haart originally consisted of a pill burden of twenty (or more) pills per day, this has been gradually diminished over the past few years, and, since July 2006, a all-in-one pill (teevir from myelin and virotrenz from ranbaxy sun pharma) has become available, which contains three anti-hiv drugs (tenofovir disoproxil fumarate 300 mg, emtricitabine 200mg and efavirenz 600 mg) to be taken as a single pill only once daily. Given the information that has been acquired on the therapeutic use (efficacy, safety) of tenofovir disoproxil fumarate over the past five years, it would now seem mandatory to further consider the prophylactic use of TDF [and its combination with emtricitabine (truvada) and/or atripla], as a single daily pill to prevent HIV infection. New combinations of drugs are also available which include tenofovir 300 mg lamivudine 150 mg which are very new drugs.
Infertility in males is caused by various factors, the main factor is oligospermia or azoospermia which means that the patient is not having enough number of sperms in the body or the patient is not able to manufacture any sperms in the body, it can be caused by severe stress or if that patient is smoking or chain smoker or the patient is drinking too much or he is having problems with carbohydrates, proteins or vitamins.
This can be treated by taking proper medication and we at best doctors in Delhi recommend patients to improve lifestyle, do exercise, walk for 45 minutes in early morning and take proper diet so that the problem is treated from base root level.

A member of the illustrious group of cancer-fighting cruciferous vegetables, kale is quickly becoming one of the most popular health foods today. Ornamental kale has also taken conventional landscapes by storm. With their brilliant blue, red and white interior, these varieties of kale are edible as well!
The health benefits of kale have been enjoyed since ancient Rome and history tells us that it was one of the most popular green leafy vegetables of the middle ages.
Kale comes from the acephala group of the brassica oleracea species that includes collard greens. There are two main varieties of kale: one that has green leaves and one that has purple. Interestingly, the central leaves do not form a head, which is one reason why kale is considered to be more closely related to wild cabbage than most domesticated forms of vegetables.
It is most commonly classified by leaf type:
Cavolo nero (dinosaur kale, black cabbage)
Curly (scots kale)
Leaf and spear (hybrid of curly and plain)
Being part of the brassica oleracea vegetable species, kale is in good company and it shares many of the same characteristics as its cousins:
There are a number of things that may be keeping you from getting pregnant:
Damage to your fallopian tubes. These structures carry eggs from your ovaries, which produce eggs, to the uterus, where the baby develops. They can get damaged when scars form after pelvic infections, endometriosis, and pelvic surgery. That can prevent sperm from reaching an egg.
Hormonal problems. You may not be getting pregnant because your body isn't going through the usual hormone changes that lead to the release of an egg from the ovary and the thickening of the lining of the uterus.
Cervical issues. Some women have a condition that prevents sperm from passing through the cervical canal.
Uterine trouble. You may have polyps and fibroids that interfere with getting pregnant. Uterine polyps and fibroids happen when too many cells grow in the endometrial, the lining of the uterus.
" unexplained" infertility. For about 20% of couples who have infertility problems, the exact causes are never pinpointed.
When it comes to great-tasting nutrition, broccoli is an all-star food with many health benefits. While low in calories, broccoli is rich in essential vitamins and minerals, in addition to fiber.
Broccoli belongs to a family of vegetables called cruciferous vegetables and its close relatives include brussel sprouts, cauliflower, and cabbage. Broccoli contains sulforophane, a sulfur-containing compound present in cruciferous vegetables
As if that's not enough, a cup of cooked broccoli offers as much vitamin c as an orange, and is a good source of beta-carotene. Broccoli contains vitamins b1, b2, b3, b6, iron, magnesium, potassium, and zinc too. It also provides fiber and is low in calories.
Vitamin k essential for the functioning of many proteins involved in blood clotting
Vitamin c builds collagen, which forms body tissue and bone, and helps cuts and wounds heal. Vitamin c is a powerful antioxidant and protects the body from damaging free radicals.
Fiber diets high in fiber promote digestive health. A high fiber intake can also help lower cholesterol.
Potassium a mineral and electrolyte that is essential for the function of nerves and heart contraction.
Folate is necessary for the production and maintenance of new cells in the body.
Infertility affects approximately 1 out of every 6 couples. An infertility diagnosis is given to a couple who are unable to conceive over the course of one year. When the problem lies with the male partner it is referred to as male infertility. Male infertility factors contribute to approximately 30% of all infertility cases, and male infertility alone accounts for approximately one-fifth of all infertility cases.
There are four main causes of infertility in males:
A hypothalamic or pituitary disorder (1-2%)
Gonad disorder (30-40%)
Sperm transport disorder (10-20%)
Unknown causes (40-50%)
There is a treatment that may prevent hiv infection. It's called pep (post exposure prophylaxis). But act fast, the sooner pep is taken after exposure the more likely it is to work.
Researchers and scientists are talking more and more about the possibility of a cure. We now know hiv as well as certain cancers.
A lot of recent research has focused on finding a functional cure'. A functional cure means that HIV still exists in the body but at such low levels it can't be detected by a blood test or make you ill.
The most well-known case of a potential functional cure occurred in a man called timothy brown, also known as the berlin patient. In 2008, he had a bone marrow transplant to treat leukaemia that also seemed to have cured his HIV. However, bone marrow transplants are very dangerous and it's still not fully understood why the procedure worked in this case.
Scientists have also tried giving babies born to HIV-positive mothers early treatment to stop him hiding in their body and prevent it from spreading.
In 2013, a baby in Mississippi, USA received treatment just 30 hours after birth, and another baby from California, USA was treated in 2014 when she was just four hours old. Unfortunately, HIV has since been found in the Mississippi baby and a similar outcome is expected for the California baby.
Functional cures are difficult to achieve because HIV hides just out of reach in hidden reservoirs. Destroying the reservoirs may be the key to curing HIV.
Sexual performance anxiety can affect both men and women, and it can range from unwarranted fears about the outcomes of sex (pregnancy, stds, shame) to hyper-critical evaluations of the self (worrying that one is unsexy, un-masculine/feminine, etc.). Whenever these kinds of anxious thoughts and feelings become attached to sex and performance, the body releases stress hormones that can interfere with sexual arousal and performance. This failure to perform can cause even greater anxiety, resulting in a vicious circle. Knowing how to break the cycle of sexual performance anxiety can help both partners have a healthier sex life and a happier relationship.
Are ejaculation problems an issue of mind over matter?
Well, if a man and his #partner don't mind how long it takes him to ejaculate, then it really doesn't matter. For example, Ian Kerner, Ph.D., a sex therapist and author of she comes first, advises men to bring their partners to the brink of orgasm before having intercourse. Then, if he's prone to #premature ejaculation, it doesn't matter since both of them come away satisfied.
Conversely, if a man takes longer than average to ejaculate, but both partners enjoy marathon sex sessions, then delayed ejaculation can be a real plus.
However, some men do mind how long it takes them to ejaculate. They mind a lot -- and so do their partners. But while the mind often plays a big role in creating ejaculation problems, it's also key in overcoming them. Here are some tips on what to do.
