Painful Intercourse - Homeopathic Remedies For It!

Painful Intercourse - Homeopathic Remedies For It!

Homeopathic medicines work with minute doses of natural elements. They work at the root level to get rid of problems that cause pain during intercourse. These include vaginal dryness, erectile dysfunction and others. These medications have no harmful symptoms or side effects, but they have to be prescribed by a homeopath only. They can be given to women of all age groups. Homeopathic prescriptions are best in treating cases of agonizing sex and bleeding after intercourse from vaginal dryness.

Here are a few effective homeopathic treatments that can help get rid of pain during intercourse:

  1. Sepia and lycopodium: It is the top homeopathic medicine for vaginal dryness. Sepia and lycopodium are evaluated as the best cures. Sepia is suggested where vaginal dryness occurs along with itching. Pain from vaginal dryness during intercourse also calls for the use of sepia.
  2. Bellis perennis: This medicine helps cure the wounded sensation in the vagina, if intercourse is obstructed due to pain and spasms.
  3. Cactus grandiflora: This is used when the vagina shuts close during the act of intercourse. Intercourse might be simpler just before periods.
  4. Coffea: This may be used when, if the vulva and vagina are oversensitive and you feel heat as well as itchiness.
  5. Cuprum: This medicine is prescribed for cramping in the vagina and the legs, during intercourse.
  6. Ferrum: When your vagina feels dry and aches, this medicine may be prescribed.
  7. Gelsemium: This medicine is used to treat any tension preceding intercourse. These symptoms usually show an inclination towards vaginismus.
  8. Lycopodium: Dry, smoldering vaginal pain during and after intercourse may be treated with this medicine. The patient may have varicose veins in the vulva.
  9. Platina: It is consumed during solid sexual desire. It becomes hard to have sex as the vulva is to a great degree oversensitive. Intercourse is difficult and causes wounded sensation.
  10. Rhus tox: Soreness during and after intercourse, regularly joined by physical fretfulness may be treated with this medicine.
  11. Staphisagria: It is a good solution for pain after loss of virginity or in occurrences of assault or rape.
  12. Thuja: This is ideally taken when the vagina is oversensitive, making intercourse painful and troublesome. Pains include smoldering, soreness and a feeling of being wounded. It may be useful where there is a medical history of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) as well.
  13. Argentum nitricum and sepia: These are the best homeopathic medications for vaginal dryness causing bleeding after intercourse. There are numerous homeopathic solutions for vaginal dryness catering to bleeding during intercourse. The most well known among these are argentum nitricum and sepia. Argentum nitricum is the most reasonable among homeopathic pharmaceuticals for vaginal dryness in situations where sex is painful and bleeding takes after intercourse.

Note: All these medicines are indicative, which one should not take without consulting a homeopathic consultant.

Nagfani ke Fayde in Hindi - नागफनी के फायदे और नुकसान

नागफनी एक ऐसा पौधा है जिसका तना पत्ते के सामान लेकिन गूदेदार होता है. जबकि इसकी पत्तियां काँटों के रूप में बदल गई होती हैं. इसे वज्रकंटका के नाम से भी जाना जाता है. यह एक कैक्टेस है जो सूखी बंजर जगह पर उगता है. इसके पौधे को बहुत ही कम पानी की आवाश्यकता होती है. यह पौधा सबसे पहले मैक्सिको में उगाया गया था है और अब यह भारत में भी बहुत आसानी से उपलब्ध है. नागफनी स्वाद में कड़वी और प्रकृति में बहुत उष्ण होती है. नागफनी में राइबोफ़्लिविन, विटामिन बी 6, तांबा, आयरन, फाइबर, विटामिन ए, विटामिन सी, विटामिन K, कैल्शियम, पोटेशियम, मैग्नीशियम और मैंगनीज शामिल हैं. यह कुछ जैविक यौगिकों जैसे फाइटोकेमिकल्स और कुछ पॉलीसेकेराइड्स का एक महत्वपूर्ण स्रोत है.नागफनी कैलोरी में कम, अच्छी वसा से भरपूर और कोलेस्ट्रॉल में कम होने के साथ साथ कई महत्वपूर्ण पोषक तत्वों का स्रोत है. नागफनी के फायदे और नुकसान निम्लिखित हैं.

1. हड्डियों के लिए
हड्डियों के लिए इसमें कैल्शियम के अलावा कई उपयोगी तत्व मौजूद होते हैं. जो क्षतिग्रस्त होने के बाद मजबूत हड्डियों के निर्माण और हड्डियों की रिपेयर का एक अनिवार्य हिस्सा है.
2. त्वचा के लिए
इसमें मौजूद फाइटोकैमिकल और एंटीऑक्सिडेंट गुण समय से पहले उम्र के लक्षणों के खिलाफ एक अच्छा रक्षात्मक तंत्र है. सेलुलर चयापचय के बाद मुक्त कण त्वचा पर रह जाते हैं जो आपकी त्वचा को प्रभावित कर सकते हैं.
3. सूजन कम करने में
नागफनी की पत्तियों से निकाले जाने वाले रस सूजन को कम करने वाले प्रभाव देखे गए हैं जिनमें गठिया, जोड़ों के दर्द और मांसपेशियों के तनाव से जुड़े लक्षण भी शामिल हैं. इसके रस को प्रभावित क्षेत्र पर लगाएं या अधिक लाभों का आनंद लेने के लिए सब्जी के रूप में उपयोग करें.
4. पाचन प्रक्रिया में
इसमें बहुत अधिक आहार फाइबर होता है. पाचन प्रक्रिया में आहार फाइबर बहुत आवश्यक होता है क्योंकि यह आँतों के कार्यों के लिए बल्क जोड़ता है. यह दस्त और कब्ज के लक्षणों को कम करता है. इसके अलावा, शरीर में अतिरिक्त फाइबर सक्रिय रूप से कोलेस्ट्रॉल की मात्रा को कम कर सकते हैं.
5. अल्सर के लिए
नाकपेशियों में तरल पदार्थ और रेशेदार पदार्थ गैस्ट्रिक अल्सर के विकास को रोकते हैं और अल्कोहल के अत्यधिक खपत के कारण विकसित होते हैं, इसलिए ऐसे लोगों के लिए जो नियमित रूप से अल्सर से ग्रस्त हैं उनको इस शक्तिशाली जड़ी बूटी को अपने आहार में शामिल करना चाहिए.
6. उपापचय के लिए
नागफनी में थायामिन, राइबोफ़्लिविन, नियासिन और विटामिन बी 6 शामिल हैं, जो सभी सेलुलर चयापचय के महत्वपूर्ण घटक होते हैं जो पूरे शरीर में एंजाइम कार्यों को विनियमित करते हैं. एक स्वस्थ अंग प्रणाली और हार्मोनल संतुलन आसानी से वजन कम करता है, स्वस्थ मांसपेशियों को बढ़ावा देता है.
7. वजन घटाने में
नागफनी में फाइबर शरीर को पूर्ण महसूस करा सकता है और घ्रालिन को रिलीज़ करने से रोकता है, यह एक भूख को बढ़ाने वाला हार्मोन है. इसके अलावा यह संतृप्त वसा और कोलेस्ट्रॉल में बहुत कम है. यह चयापचय की क्षमता से भरपूर है. इसमें मौजूद विटामिन बी 6, थियामीन, और रिबोफ़्लिविन की उपस्थिति भी चयापचयी कार्य को जल्दी से करती है.
8. मधुमेह के उपचार में

9. कैंसर का
इसमें पाए जाने वाले फाइटोकेमिकल्स, फ्लेवोनोइड यौगिकों, विटामिन सी और अन्य एंटीऑक्सिडेंट की विविधता संपूर्ण प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली के लिए बेहद फायदेमंद होती है, खासकर जब विभिन्न कैंसर की बात आती है. एंटीऑक्सिडेंट फायदेमंद यौगिक हैं जो शरीर में मुक्त कणों की तलाश करते हैं और कैंसर कोशिकाओं में स्वस्थ कोशिकाओं के डीएनए को उत्परिवर्तित करने से पहले उन्हें समाप्त कर देते हैं.
10. अनिद्रा के उपचार में
इसमें मैग्नीशियम भी होता है जो अनिद्रा, चिंता या बेचैनी से ग्रस्त लोगों में नींद पैदा करने के लिए एक उपयोगी खनिज है. यह शरीर में सेरोटोनिन को रिलीज़ करता है, जिसके परिणामस्वरूप मेलाटोनिन का स्तर बढ़ जाता है.

  • नागफनी कभी-कभी लोगों को हाइपोग्लाइमिक बना सकता हैं.
  • ऑपरेशन से पहले भी अत्यधिक उपयोग नहीं किया जाना चाहिए क्योंकि इससे ग्लूकोज और रक्त पोषक तत्वों को नियंत्रित करना मुश्किल हो जाता है.

Pain in lower back is very common in late pregnancy. You can get regular massage of your back using mahanarayana taila or kottamchukadi taila after warming it. Ask some body to do a light massage daily. Keep itself warm after massage. You can take sugarcane and cheeky juice. Its good.

No you need not worry, since you are sure about having protected sex. Taking ipill sometimes very rarely though, can cause irregularity in cycle. However, do one urine pregnancy test to be on safer side.

STDs - Why Timely Examination Is Important?

MBBS, DNB - Obstetrics and Gynecology, DGO
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
STDs - Why Timely Examination Is Important?

An STD or sexually transmitted disease is usually an infection which spreads from one person to another during sexual contact. Some STDs can also be transferred through touch, since they spread by skin contact. People hardly like to talk or discuss about STDs, but it is very important to rule out the possibilities of STD. Whether one likes it or not, if STD testing is ignored, then it can lead to long-term consequences.

Why STD Testing is Important?

Often STDs have no signs and symptoms, and the only way to know that are you suffering from an STD is to get tested for it. So it is a good idea to get yourself tested, as you never know if you might have STD even though you don't show symptoms. Also, when STDs are diagnosed, most of them can be cured.

Consequences of not Getting Tested

If one has STD and is not getting tested for the same, then it could lead to health problems which can cause permanent damages or might prove to be fatal. Some of the problems are:

  1. Undiagnosed and untreated STDs can lead to damaged reproductive system, leading to sterile men and women.
  2. Chlamydia, if untreated can lead to epididymitis and shrinkage of testicles and infertility in men. It also leads to pelvic inflammatory disease. But, good news is, it can be treated easily.
  3. Syphilis can make a person blind and deaf, and can also be passed on to babies.
  4. Gonorrhea, which can also be treated easily with antibiotics, can lead to infertility or death if untreated.
  5. Even HIV/AIDS if diagnosed in early stages can enable the patient to lead a normal life and does not mean only death, contrary to conventional perceptions.  

Symptoms of STD

While, gonorrhea, chlamydia and human papilloma virus (HPV) have no symptoms, the common symptoms of STDs might vary.

  1. In women, the common symptoms are pain and burning sensation during urination, blood in vaginal discharge as also abnormal vaginal discharge, abdominal pain, blisters, warts, and swollen glands.
  2. Men often experience inflammation of the testicles, prostate, sores, fever, urethral discharge and pain during urination.

If these symptoms are observed, it is vital to get tested for STDs. Also, the best way to protect your partner is not to practice unsafe sex and to refrain from the same until diagnosed and treatment is complete.

Getting yourself tested for STD is also beneficial, as it can prevent against complications like cancers and infertility. The standard STD panel of tests consists of Herpes IgG antibody and HIV antibody blood tests, along with a blood test for syphilis antibody and DNA urine test for gonorrhea and Chlamydia. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.
