This is known as Dysmenorrhea... and usually it gets relieved in many instance after first pregnancy... But waiting till then is not a wise decision and you should think of homoeopathic prescription... The only issue is over the counter prescriptions are not always successful then a medicine given after detailed case study... Advise is to consult with proper details... Till then you may try giving her homoeopathic medicine Viburnum Opulus 30 TDS for 10 days... and see if it helps...

Pros and Cons Of Casual Sex

MS Human Sexuality, M.Phil Clinical Psychology, PhD (Behaviour Modification), Certified In Treatment of Resistant Depression
Sexologist, Hyderabad

In today's culture, the modern man needs to know how to properly navigate his way through the messy, tangled maze of casual sex. However you're causally doing it, it has it's pros and cons.

 

Pros:

Freedom, baby: Casual coitus means zero commitment. There is no wining, there is no dining hell, certain situations flirting is overkill. You get in, get off and get out.

 

It saves time: I like you, you like me, we like sex, mentality conserves precious minutes in your busy day. You're drunk, you're horny, it's 3 am, and the last thing you want to have to do is impress someone.

 

Lower expectations: When you know you're never going to date this person, or see them again, the pressure to perform relaxes. Lower expectations allow you to really let go, be yourself (or someone else) and enjoy. So go ahead, get weird?

 

Orgasms are good for you: As we recently learned, orgasms not only strengthen your immune system, but climaxing also releases chemicals that boost levels of estrogen and testosterone, which can improve the tone and texture of your skin and hair. Ipso facto, your orgasms make you hot don't wait for 'the one' when you could be having multiple and getting better looking by the minute.

 

Stress relief: According to one study, casual sex actually has a positive effect on the psychological well being of those who have liberal views on sex. So, carefree sex will actually alleviate anxiety and boost your self-esteem.

 

 

Cons:

STDs, etc sorry to take it there, but these are the stakes. Nothing takes the sexy out of sex like something that requires medical attention. Want to know what else kills your casual vibe? A baby. Wrap it up, play it safe.

 

Walk of shame: While walking home to a house of dudes celebrating your overnight escapades makes you feel like the man, in reality, the walk of shame can be disorienting and uncomfortable, and is often accompanied by a serious hangover. If you find yourself in a morning-after situation, it also means you slept over, a'no-no' in the casual sex department. Sleepovers will only lead to emotional attachment, which leads us to point.

 

Emotions: If you're casually sexing the same person on the reg, you run the risk of someone eventually feeling feelings. One minute you're enjoying a mutually satisfying, purely sexual encounter, the next you're being dragged through the jungian mud. Suddenly, sex gets sticky in all the wrong ways.

 

Avoid inevitable disaster by watching for certain warning signs:

1. She divulges personal information outside of dirty talk

2. She wants to take secret selfies with you

3. She texts to ask how your day is going.

 

Fatal attraction: No one wants a stage 5 clinger. This type of crazy is probably great in the sack, but not worth the wear-and-tear in the long run. Before you know it, you're message is blowing up, find my friends has been installed on your phone and she's showing up at your place of work. Run, do not walk, away from the stage 5 clinger.

Air Pollution: Its Effects on Health And Role of Homeopathy in Air Pollution Related Diseases

Air Pollution: Its Effects on Health And Role of Homeopathy in Air Pollution Related Diseases

Air is the Most Essential Thing

Air is a mechanical mixture of gases, and the most essential thing for an organism to survive. It normally contains Nitrogen (78%), Oxygen (21%), Carbon dioxide and other gases in proportion. In addition to these gases, air also contains water vapour, traces of ammonia and suspended matter such as dust, bacteria, spores, and vegetable debris, etc.

Apart from supplying the life-giving oxygen, air and atmospheric conditions serve several functions.  The human body is cooled by the air contact; special senses of hearing and smell function through air-transmitted stimuli; disease agents are conveyed by air.

The term “air pollution” denotes the presence of substances (e.g. gases, mixtures of gases and particulate matter) in the ambient surroundings, generated by the activities that interfere with the human health, safety or comfort, and is injurious to organisms, and other environmental media. It also results in chemicals entering the food chain, drinking water and thereby, adding substantial disease burden and affecting the quality of life.  The problem of air pollution was first recognized about 500 years ago when the burning of coal in cities was increasing, and since then it is increasing at an alarming rate all over the globe.

During foggy weather, when little wind is present the smoke generated from pollution is mixed with fog and form “SMOG”

The smog is making it difficult for people to see and breathe. 

 

Types

  1. Personal air exposure: refers to exposure to dust, fumes and gases to which an individual is exposed directly or indirectly, eg. Smoking.
  2. Occupational air exposure: exposure to harmful concentration of aerosols, vapors, and gases in working environment.
  3. Community air exposure:  This is most serious, complex, consists of varieties of assortment of pollution sources, meteorological factors, and wide variety of adverse social, economic, and health effects.

 

Air Pollutants

Till date more than 100 substances have been identified which pollute the air. These vary from place to place depending upon the specific complex of contaminant source. Following are few examples of primary and secondary air pollutants:

  • Carbon monoxide
  • Sulphur dioxide
  • Nitrogen oxides
  • Hydrocarbons
  • Particulate matter
  • Lead
  • Benzen
  • Ozone
  • PAN (peroxy acetyl nitrate)
  • Photochemical smog
  • Aerosols and mists: Sulphuric acid  (H2SO4), Nitric acid (HNO3)

Indoor Air Pollution

  • Indoor air pollution is one of the four most critical global environmental problems.
  • It exposes more people worldwide to important air pollutants than pollution in outdoor air.
  • Rural people in developing countries may receive as much as two-thirds of the global exposure to particulates.
  • Women and children suffer the greatest exposure.

Sources of Indoor Pollution

  • Indoor air pollution contributes to acute respiratory infections in young children, chronic lung disease, and cancer in adults, and may induce adverse pregnancy outcomes.
  • Non-smoking women exposed to indoor coal smoke have a risk of lung cancer similar to that of men who smoke lightly.

Effects on Health

Air pollution has short term and long term effects. The direct effects are reflected in airway system and then spread to multi-systems. It ranges from:

  • Upper and lower respiratory tract infections (acute and chronic)
  • Acute and recurrent bronchitis
  • Acute respiratory distress
  • Asthmatic attacks
  • Aggravation of pre-existing respiratory and heart disease.
  • Lung cancer

The short term and long term exposure is also linked with short life expectancy and reduced quality of life.

Effects of specific pollutants

Perforation of the Uterus: There is a possibility that the walls of the uterus may get punctured. Although the chances are slim, the risk is also small as the uterus usually heals without complications.
Bleeding: There is usually some post-operative bleeding which diminishes with time but can be an inconvenience just the same.
Cervicovaginal Fistula: This is can be caused by a combination of the dilatation and curettage procedure and cerUterine Rupture: Rare cases of uterine rupture have been cited where the instillation was caused by the infusion of high-dose oxytocin.
