Effective Herbal Remedy for Male Infertility!

Low libido in men has become a serious concern nowadays as is evident from the increased demand for male infertility medicines in the market. These modern medicines focus on suppressing the symptoms of the problem rather than cure the root cause of the problem. Ayurveda can help you get a deeper understanding of these issues regarding male health and also provide a permanent cure with herbs and proper diet guidelines.

Low libido can lead to infertility and hamper your relationship. Male infertility is the end result of a poor diet that overuses bitter, salty, sour and spicy ingredients, emotional pressure, aging, improper fasting, suppressing urges, excessive exercising, and genetic factors. General stress and worrying in life might cause lack of interest in spending time with your partner. Ayurveda provides herbal remedy for male infertility and brings back the happiness and closeness in your relationship.

Ms. lybrate-user As you asked about your problems related to your missed periods for two months I would like to advise you to consult local Gynaec specialist for pregnancy test. If it is negative because of your weight gain then try to lose your wt. Otherwise it is due to excessive accumulation of toxins and harmonic imbalances. You need your Pulse evaluation for your complete diagnosis and proper treatment.

STD Testing - Why You Should Never Delay?

DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology), MBBS
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
STD Testing - Why You Should Never Delay?

In most diseases, early detection of the disease is the key to control the symptoms, cure, reduce progression and improve prognosis. This holds true for sexually transmitted diseases too. As soon as there is a mild degree of suspicious of having contracted a sexually transmitted disease, it is advisable to go for a test. Most of the STDs (sexually transmitted diseases) can develop into serious complications over a period of time, ranging from infertility to even death.

Complications: Why early diagnosis is important: When left undiagnosed and untreated, most STDs progress to cause severe damage from sterility to cancer to even death. Listed below are some complications associated with each of the common STDs.

  1. Chlamydia: If left untreated, can lead to epididymitis and testicles shrinking and infertility in males. This is a condition where there is pus formation in the scrotum. In women, it can lead to pelvic inflammatory disease which is deep-seated and unable to cure completely. This brings with it symptoms ranging from abdominal pain to uterine infections to sterility.
  2. Syphillis: Undiagnosed syphilis can lead to blindness and deafness. It can also be passed onto the newborn and lead to severe disabilities.
  3. Gonorrhea: If diagnosed early, it can be cured completely with antibiotics. However, if left untreated, it can lead to infertility.
  4. HIV/AIDS: Early diagnosis can help in curtailing the disease. If detected late, then the damage is quite extensive and treatment is both expensive and cannot help restore a lot of functions. 

Symptoms of Sexually transmitted diseases: If there is a doubt of having contracted an STD, then it is very important to get tested for the same. Some of the most common symptoms are listed below.

  1. Women: The most common symptoms in women including painful urination, burning sensation, abnormal vaginal discharge (sometimes bleeding), warts, and abdominal pain.
  2. Men: Testicular pain, urethral pain, painful urination, pain and inflammation in the prostate, sores, fever, and abdominal pain.

Prevention: Always practice safe sexual practices. When in doubt, refrain from sex until diagnosis and treatment is complete.

Testing for STDs: Some of the standard tests include:

  1. 1. Herpes- HSV I & II - 
    2. Testing HIV-- Kits and ELISA available for testing 
    3. Blood test for syphilis antibodies 
    4. Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea - from urine as well as swabs for culture

It is understandable that getting tested for STDs is an embarrassing situation. However, there are options available where anonymity can be maintained when getting tested for STDs. This is a wise choice to make as the risk is not just for the person affected but for the partner and in some cases even for the fetus. Early testing can help prevent complications like infertility and cancer. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

I am 23 yrs old female and my periods is late by 11days n ive got white discharge but ders no sign of tender nipples. N my white discharge has always been a problem for the last 5 yrs. Please help.

Advanced Aesthetics
Ayurveda, Gulbarga
Leukorrhea is a very common problem among women. It refers to a thin or thick, whitish or yellowish vaginal discharge that may occur in between menstruation cycles or during pregnancy and usually lasts from a few days to weeks a vaginal infection or std, too, may cause leukorrhea, especially if the discharge is yellow or green and accompanied by foul odor fenugreek seeds help improve the ph level in the vagina and are also also believed to affect estrogen levels. Plus, the seeds work as a natural immune booster? soak one teaspoon of fenugreek seeds in water overnight. The next morning, strain the water and add one-half teaspoon of honey. Drink it on an empty stomach? alternatively, boil two teaspoons of fenugreek seeds in four cups of water for 30 minutes. Strain and allow it to cool. Use this water as a vaginal wash three or four times daily until the symptoms subside. Any querries inform me.

Home Remedies for Sugar - शुगर का घरेलू इलाज

Home Remedies for Sugar - शुगर का घरेलू इलाज

डायबिटीज ऐसी बीमारी है, जो महिला-पुरुष,बच्चे, बूढ़े, जवान। किसी को भी हो सकती है। शुगर उस चयापचय बीमारी को कहा जाता है, जिसमें व्यक्ति के खून में शुगर (रक्त शर्करा) की मात्रा जरुरत से ज्यादा हो जाती है। ऐसा इसलिए होता है क्यों कि या तो व्यक्ति से शरीर में इन्सुलिन का उत्पादन प्रयाप्त मात्रा में नहीं हो रहा हो या वह व्यक्ति के शरीर की कोशिकाएं से सही व्यवहार नहीं कर रही हो।

जब तक शुगर की बीमारी की असली वजह नहीं जान लेते तब तक यह रोग कभी भी ठीक नहीं होगा। जब शरीर में कोलेस्ट्रोल की बढ़त होती है। तो वो हमारी कोशिकाओं में जाकर उनके चारो ओर चिपक जाता है। और हमारे रक्त में विद्यमान इन्सुलिन हमारी कोशिकाओं तक सही तरीके नही पहुँच पाता। इसके लिए हमें इन्सुलिन के टिके लगवाने पडते हैं। कहने का ये मतलब है कि सुगर का सम्बन्ध कोलेस्ट्रोल से होता है ना की शुगर (चीनी) से।

एलोपैथी में तो कह दिया गया है कि उनके पास इससे होने वाली परेशानियों से बचने के उपाय तो हैं। पर इसे जड़ से ख़त्म करने की कोई दवा नहीं है। कुछ अन्य चिकित्सा पद्धतियों में ज़रूर इसे जड़ से ख़त्म कर देने का दावा किया जाता है। अब किसके दावों में कितनी वास्तविकता है इसमें ना पड़ते हुए हम जानेंगे ऐसे घरेलू नुखों के बारे में जो आपकी शुगर को ख़त्म भले ना कर सकें, पर राहत जरूर दे सकते हैं। ख़ास बात ये है कि ये सभी चीजें हर जगह बहुत आसानी से मिल जाती हैं। बल्कि कुछ तो आपके किचन में मौजूद भी होंगी।तो आये जानते हैं कुछ ख़ास उपचार जिनसे शुगर पर लगेगी लगाम।

1. करेला
करेले का खास गुण ये है कि इससे पंक्रियज को इन्सुलिन रिलीज़ करने में मदद मिलती है। और ये ब्लड ग्लूकोज के लेलव को कम करता है। रोजाना सुबह दो-तीन करेले लेकर उनका बीज निकाल दें और फिर उनका जूस निकालें। इस जूस में थोड़ा सा पानी मिलाकर खाली पेट पी जाएं। ये नुस्खा दो महीने आजमाकर देखें। फ़ायदा आपको महसूस होने लगेगा।

2. भिन्डी 
भिन्डी में भी ब्लड ग्लूकोज लेवल को कम करने का खास गुण होता है। थोड़ी सी भिन्डी लेकर उसके दोनों सिरे काट दें। फिर फोर्क की मदद से उनमें कई जगह छेद कर दें। अब इन्हें एक गिलास पानी में डुबोकर रात भर के लिए रख दें। सुबह ये पानी खाली पेट पी जाएं। कुछ ही हफ़्तों में आप अपने शुगर लेवल को डाउन होता पाएंगे।

3. एलोवेरा 
एलोवेरा की खासियत है कि ये फास्टिंग ब्लड ग्लूकोज को कम करने में अहम रोल अदा करके Type 2 Diabetes के मरीजों को काफी राहत देता है। एलोवेरा तेज पत्ते और हल्दी को साथ लेने से ब्लड शुगर कण्ट्रोल करने में ख़ास मदद मिलती है। इसे लेने का तरीका बड़ा आसान है। आधा चम्मच पिसा तेज पत्ता, आधा चम्मच पिसी हल्दी, एक बड़े चम्मच एलोवेरा के साथ दोपहर और रात के खाने से पहले लें। 

4. कड़ी पत्ता 
अपने खान-पान में कड़ी पत्ता इस्तेमाल करते ही है। बस रोजाना सुबह खाली पेट इसकी 8-10 ताजी पत्तियां चबा जाया करें। इससे शुगर में तो आराम मिलता ही है हाई कोलेस्ट्रोल लेवल को कम करने और मोटापा पर काबू रकने में भी मदद मिलेगी।

5. आंवला 
आपने ये तो सुना ही होगा कि आंवला विटमिन सी से भरपूर होता है। और शरीर को ताकत देता है। पर शायद आप ये नहीं जानते कि आवंला पेनक्रियाज को सही फंक्शन करने में भी मदद करता है।
दो-तीन आंवले लेकर उनका बीज निकालें। इन आंवलों को अच्छी तरह घिसकर पेस्ट लीजिए।अब पेस्ट को कपड़े में रखकर अच्छी तरह निचोड़िए। जो रस निकले उसमें एक कप पानी मिलाकर सुबह खाली पेट पी जाएं। दो महीने रोजाना सुबह इसे पीने से ही आपको फर्क दिखने लगेगा।

6. अमरुद 
अमरूद में भरपूर फाइबर और विटमिन सी होता है। ये शुगर को रोकने में बहुत कारगर है। शुगर के मरीज इसका छिलका उतारकर खाएं। पर दिन भर में दो-तीन अमरूद से ज्याना ना खाएं। 

7. आम के पत्ते 
आम के पत्तों में ब्लड में इन्सुलिन लेवल को संयमित करने का गुण होता है इसलिए आम के 10-15 मुलायम पत्ते रात को एक गिलास पानी में भिगो दें। सुबह इस पानी को खाली पेट पी जाएं। अगर आपको रोज-रोज ये सब करना न जमें तो बहुत से आम के पत्ते लेकर उन्हें छांव में सुखा लें। उसके बाद उन्हें पीसकर किसी बोतल या डिब्बे में रख लें। ये पाउडर रोजाना सुबह शाम आधा-आधा खाकर पानी पी लें। 

8. लो फैट 
लो फैट दही और स्किम्ड/डबल टोंड दूध ही लें। 

9. ग्रीन टी पीना अच्छा है 
चाय के साथ हाई फाइबर बिस्किट या फीके बिस्किट ही लें और अगर ब्लडप्रेशर है तो नमकीन बिस्किट भी खा सकते हैं। 

10. थोडा थोडा खाएं 
दिन भर में 4-5 बार फल और सब्जियां खाएं लेकिन एक ही बार में सब कुछ खाने की बजाय बार-बार थोड़ा-थोड़ा करके खाएं। 

11. फल 
फल अपनाएं यह एनी चीजों के साथ शुगर में भी फायदेमंद होते हैं। लेकिन ध्यान रहे सभी नही फलों में चेरी, स्ट्रॉबेरी, सेब, संतरा, अनार, पपीता,मोसंबी आदि खाएं।

It is very important to stick to the treatment advised as hormones ,blood tests and scans will be repeated at all places at the first visit and subsequent visits will concentrate on actual treatment part.

What is Androgenic Alopecia?

Dermatologist, Delhi
What is Androgenic Alopecia?

Androgenic alopecia is a typical type of hair loss in both men and women. In men, this condition is also called as, Male Pattern Baldness. Hair is lost in an all around characterized pattern, starting above both temples. After some time, the hairline recedes to frame a characteristic "M" shape. Hair additionally thins at the crown (close to the top of the head), regularly advancing to partial or Complete Baldness.

The pattern of Hair Loss in women contrasts from male pattern baldness. In women, the hair winds up plainly more slender everywhere throughout the head, and the hairline does not recede. Androgenic Alopecia in women occasionally prompts add up to total baldness.

Androgenic alopecia in men has been, related with a many other medicinal conditions including coronary illness and growth of the prostate. Moreover, Prostate Cancer, Disorder of Insulin Resistance, (for example, diabetes and Obesity), and High Blood Pressure (hypertension) have been identified with Androgenic Alopecia. In women, this type of hair loss is, related with an expanded risk of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS). PCOS is, portrayed by a hormonal imbalance that can prompt sporadic Menstruation, Acne, Abundance hair somewhere else on the body (Hirsutism), and Weight Gain.

Androgenic Alopecia is an incessant reason for hair loss in both men and women. This type of hair loss influences an expected 50 million men and 30 million women in the United States. Androgenic Alopecia can begin in teenage also and risk increments with age; more than 50 percent of men over age 50 have some level of hair loss. In women, hair loss is no doubt after menopause.

Causes of Androgenic Alopecia

Change in Genetics

An assortment of hereditary and natural components likely, assume a part in causing Androgenic Alopecia. In spite of the fact that scientists are contemplating risk considers that may add to this condition, a large portion of these elements stay obscure. Scientists have discovered that this type of hair loss is, identified with hormones called Androgens, especially an Androgen called Dihydrotestosterone. Androgens are critical for ordinary male sexual development before birth and during puberty. Androgens likewise have other critical functions in both males and females, for example, controlling Hair Growth and Sex Drive.

Hair Growth initiates under the skin in structures called Follicles. Each strand of hair typically develops for 2 to 6 years, goes into a resting stage for many months, and afterward drops out. The cycle begins once again when the follicle starts growing another hair. Increased levels of Androgens in hair follicles can prompt a shorter cycle of hair growth and the growth of shorter and thinner strands of hair. Moreover,

To replace strands, which are shed off there is a deferral in the growth of new hair.

In spite of the fact that Researchers speculate that several Genes play a part in Androgenic Alopecia, varieties in just a single Gene, Androgen Receptor, have been affirmed in Scientific Studies. The Androgen Receptor Gene gives directions to making a protein called an Androgen Receptor. Androgen Receptors enable the body to react fittingly to Dihydrotestosterone and different Androgens. Studies propose that varieties in the Androgen Receptor Gene prompt expanded action of Androgen Receptors in hair follicles. It stays misty, nevertheless, how these hereditary changes increment the risk of Hair Loss in Men and Women with Androgenic Alopecia.

Researchers keep on investigating the association between Androgenic Alopecia and other medical conditions, for example, Heart Disease and Prostate Cancer in men and Polycystic Ovary disorder in Women. They trust that some of these disorders might be, related with elevated Androgen Levels, which may assist to describe why they have a tendency to happen with Androgen related Hair Loss. Other hormonal, natural, and hereditary components that have not been, recognized likewise might be included.

Inheritance Pattern

The Inheritance Pattern of Androgenic Alopecia is hazy in light of the fact that numerous hereditary and natural components are probably going to be included. This condition tends to cluster in families, in any case, and having a nearby relative with patterned hair loss has all the earmark of being a risk calculate for developing the condition.


Notwithstanding Male Pattern Baldness, Androgenic Alopecia in men has been, related with a few other therapeutic conditions including Coronary Heart Illness and augmentation of the Prostate. Moreover, Prostate Cancer, Disorders of Insulin Resistance, (for example, Diabetes and Obesity), and High Blood Pressure (Hypertension) have been identified with Androgenic Alopecia in men. In women, Androgenic Alopecia is, related with an expanded risk of Polycystic Ovary Disorder (PCOS) which is, described by a hormonal imbalance that can prompt sporadic Menstruation, Acne, Excess body hair (Hirsutism), and Weight Gain.

The Human Phenotype Ontology (HPO) gives the accompanying list of components that have been, reported in individuals with this condition. A significant part of the data in the HPO originates from Orphanet, a European uncommon disease database. On the off chance that accessible, the rundown incorporates an unpleasant gauge of how regular a component is (its recurrence). Frequencies depend on a particular study and may not be illustrative of all studies.



Genetic Testing

What is Genetic Testing?

Genetic testing is a sort of therapeutic test that distinguishes changes in chromosomes, genes, or proteins. The consequences of a genetic test can affirm or preclude a speculated genetic condition or help decide a person’s chance of creating or passing on a genetic disorder. More than 1,000 genetic tests are at present used and more are being, developed.

Various techniques can be, utilized for Genetic Testing:

  • Molecular Genetic Tests (or Gene Tests) ponder single genes or short lengths of DNA to distinguish varieties or transformations that prompt a Genetic disorder.

  • Chromosomal Genetic Tests analyze entire chromosomes or long lengths of DNA to check whether there are expansive Genetic changes, for example, an additional copy of a chromosome, that cause a genetic condition.
  • Biochemical Genetic Tests contemplate the sum or action level of proteins; variations from the norm in either can demonstrate changes to the DNA that outcome in a Genetic Disorder.

Genetic testing is intentional. Since, testing has benefits and in addition restrictions and risks, the choice about whether to be tested is an individual and complex one. A Geneticist or Genetic Counselor can help by giving data about the advantages and disadvantages of the test and examining the social and enthusiastic parts of testing.


Each patient is exceptional and just the Doctor can assess and decide the Best Treatment.

Surgical Treatment of Androgenic Alopecia has great restorative outcomes. The principle issue is covering the Bald area with Donor Plugs (or follicles) adequate in number to be powerful. Micrografting produces a more Natural appearance than the old method of Transplanting Plugs.

It is critical for the patients with Androgenic Alopecia to be assessed for treatable reasons for "Telogen Effluvium" (diffuse Hair Shedding, frequently beginning abruptly) like anemia or hypothyroidism, particularly in patients who had a quick advance of their illness or a sudden begin of the sickness.
