I am a forty nine year old married female. I have one son who is 20 years old. My problem is I am able to have foreplay with my spouse but not able to have actual sex with him. I dislike it but enjoy the foreplay. It is now almost more than 8 years that I have not had a complete act with my husband. Instead I use his knee to give me pressure and feel happy with it. I had developed this knee technique as I had spotting problem during my pregnancy if I had normal sex and till date the same thing continues. Please advise.

You Could Be Magnesium Deficient Without Being Aware

You Could Be Magnesium Deficient Without Being Aware
You Could Be Magnesium Deficient Without Being Aware

Magnesium is one of those minerals that are used by every organ of your body, particularly the most hard working organs of your body viz. muscles, heart, kidney, liver and bones. Magnesium is drastically reduced in liver disorders or in an alcoholic's body. It is most important for bones. Its deficiency can cause Osteoporosis. In fact, any unexplained reasons for fatigue, pain, muscle spasms, eye-twitching or abnormal heart rhythms can be attributed to lack of magnesium. And most of the times it is remains undiscovered since it is distributed across the blood-stream, which makes it difficult to test in the first place.

These symptoms can give you a fair idea when to see a doctor for magnesium deficiency.

1) Early Signs - Early signs of magnesium deficiency includes numbness and tingling, seizures, abnormal heart rhythms, personality changes and coronary spasms.
2) Gynaecology Issues and Infertility - If the deficiency isn’t treated in the first place, it can lead you to a variety of other problems, such as gynaecology issues like PMS, infertility and pre-eclampsia, osteoporosis.
3) Chronic conditions - It can lead to problems like chronic back pain, Raynaud’s syndrome, migraine or nerve problems.
4) Hypertension and Bowel Diseases- It is also a responsible factor behind hypertension, hypoglycaemia, insomnia, bowel diseases, depression and other problems.

What Should You Do?

To generally up the magnesium levels, you should have plant based nutrients on regular basis, such as fruits and vegetables. Make sure that it is balanced with Vitamin K2 and D along with magnesium, to ensure overall health. However, you must take doctor's advice when it is a confirmed case of the deficiency.

She needs to get a few blood tests done- tft, fsh, lh, prolactin, amh, complete blood count. Also a pelvic scan and hsg to check tubes. You need to get a semen analysis done. Subsequent treatment will depend on the cause found.

It is ok for few time, but try to stop sex for a week, to make back your bleeding point normal as of it is a chance of some local tissue of skin damage while sexual activity. So no need to worry just make rest for penis for a while and then consult me about your condition.

If pregnancy test is negative after ten days of intercourse it means you are not pregnant and you had safe sex by using condom. You can check your areola of the nipple if it becomes more pigmented than usual it is also a sign of pregnancy.

Gynaecology Endoscopy - Things that You Should be Aware of

Gynaecology Endoscopy - Things that You Should be Aware of

Gynaecological endoscopy is a surgical practice that aids in diagnosing the most common female disorders, such as minute vaginal haemorrhages, infertility problems and endometrial polyps (noncancerous growths on the inner uterine wall). It uses a small and slender optical device to diagnose such problems.

Gynaecological endoscopy is of two types

  1. Hysteroscopy: A small optical instrument is inserted at the neck of the uterus; it is used to examine the inside of the uterine cavity, and in some cases, is used to remove endometrial polyps.
  2. Laparoscopy: It is done through a small incision on the belly to examine the Fallopian tubes, the ovaries and the uterus; it is minimally invasive.

Gynaecological endoscopy has the following advantages

  1. Recovery time is minimised
  2. Lesser risks of infections, or other side-effects

Preparation
You do not need to do a lot to prepare for endoscopy. Here are the few things you have to go through before this surgery is conducted:

  1. The preparation depends on the kind of surgery to be done. You might require imaging tests. Also, the doctor may recommend an enema or even fasting.
  2. You need to inform your doctor about any medication you are taking, including supplements or non-prescription drugs. Stop taking your medications before the procedure.

Procedure followed

  1. The surgery is mostly done under general anaesthesia.
  2. A catheter (a small tube) is inserted to collect urine and carbon dioxide is used to fill your abdomen once you are asleep. The gas keeps your organs safe by keeping the abdominal wall away from them. This reduces the dangers of injury.
  3. A small incision in your navel will allow the surgeon to insert the endoscope. The endoscope relays images on a screen, giving a clear image of your organs to your doctor. Consult a gynaecologist online.

Pain during menstruation is called as dysmenorrhoea. If you r suffering from this since long time and if it is not controlled by meftal spas and if you have to stay at home during menses because of pain, then you should get sonography done to find out the cause. It could be ovarian cyst or endometriosis also.

First of all if you are not taking any preventive measures for birth control, you need to check weather you are pregnant or not. Then after I can suggest you treatment. Don't go for any type of medicine without confirmation of pregnancy test.

Most likely your periods have come early related to stress. However since it is less than usual I would advice you to do a urine pregnancy test as well. If negative simply monitor your cycles for the next two months. It should come back to normal.

Ideal Pregnancy Diet

The moment you realize that you are going to be a mummy a lot of people start advising about healthy eating. What exactly is a healthy plan for pregnant women? It is very important for the mother to eat a balanced diet. Aiming to eat a healthy and balanced pregnancy diet that includes- one third of most meals should be starch-based foods (such as cereals, potatoes, rice, and wheat pasta), with fruit and vegetables. Keeping it fiber rich, good sources are wholegrain breads as well as fruit and vegetables. Eat some protein foods such as fish, pulses, chicken, etc, every day. Choose lean meat. Try to avoid adding fat - for example, by not frying food. A total weight gain of 11-16 kg over the pregnancy is normal.

Include Foods with plenty of Iron, Calcium and Folic acid -

  • Iron is mainly found in non vegetarian sources, pulses, dried fruit, green leafy vegetables, soybeans and fortified cereals.
  • Calcium is mainly found in dairy products such as milk, cheese, and yoghurt, green leafy vegetables, soybean and seeds.
  • Folic acid is mainly found in green vegetables, brown rice, and fortified cereals.
  • Fish- in general, fish is a good source of protein and other nutrients. However, there are some important exceptions. Some types of fish contain a high level of mercury which can damage the developing nervous system of an unborn baby. Because of this, the Food Standards Agency (FSA) advises: Not to include eat any marlin or swordfish. Limit tuna - eat no more than 140 g or two fresh tuna steaks per week.
  • Oily fish, includes- mackerel, sardines, salmon, trout and fresh tuna- not more than two helpings in a week.
  • Foods and drinks to be avoided
  • Food sources high in Listeria. Listeria is a germ (bacterium). Pregnant women are more likely to become infected with listeria and it sometimes causes complications. Foods which are most at risk of carrying listeria are: Undercooked meats and eggs, raw shellfish and raw fish and unpasteurized milk.
  • Limit the amount of Caffeine to no more than 300 mg per day.

It is recommended that you visit a nutrition expert who can understand your daily requirements and activities and suggest a nutrition diet plan as per the same. The expert shall also consider your medical history and understand if you have a tendency to put on weight. A comprehensive pregnancy diet plan helps a woman relive stress and the right balance of antioxidants helps balance the body.
