My friend is 44yrs old. Had gone through a hysterectomy 8 yrs ago and removed one ovary due to fibroids. Now her doctor has asked her to remove the second ovary too due to a cyst which is around 7 cms and causes a lot of pain every time she ovulates. My question is will she loose her sex drive and will she be unable to have an orgasm? Her doctor has also said he won't put her on hrt. But natural pills for hormones.

yes, your sexual desire may change. That’s because both testosterone and estrogen, hormones that are important in sexual desire and intercourse, are produced in the ovaries. These glands produce about half of testosterone and nearly all of estrogen. While testosterone is thought to contribute mainly to desire, estrogen is important for healthy vaginal tissue, keeping it thick, moist and flexible. Without estrogen, vaginal tissue becomes drier and thinner, more likely to tear and lead to painful intercourse. While supplemental estrogen can prevent or minimize this, without it you may find the fear of pain prevents you from having sex. Many studies, however, show an improvement in sexual function after a hysterectomy. This is likely because the surgery eliminates the pain, bleeding or other symptoms that may have caused problems with sex. Also, the surgery eliminates the possibility of pregnancy, thus making sex more gratifying for some women.

If I take a contraceptive pill to avoid unwanted pregnancy is there any risk associated? Should I consult ant doctor?

Gynaecologist, Kolkata
If you want 100% safety, you should consult a gynecologist who will find out whether there are any contraindications for taking pills. You will be prescribed the pill appropriate for your age, body weight, and requirements. So it will give you a lasting confidence to take the pill in the proper manner, both increasing its efficacy and also maximising the safety you are looking for.

Signs, Symptoms and Diagnosis of Jaundice

MBBS, MD - General Medicine
General Physician, Gurgaon
Signs, Symptoms and Diagnosis of Jaundice

Jaundice is a medical condition, which is characterized by the yellow coloring of the skin and eyes. It generally occurs when there is an excess of bilirubin in your system. Bilirubin is a yellow pigment formed in the liver by the breakdown of red blood cells. It normally gets discharged by the liver along with other dead red blood cells. So if you are suffering from jaundice, it usually indicates that you have some serious problems regarding the functioning of your liver, pancreas, or gallbladder.

Signs and symptoms:
Signs and symptoms commonly associated with jaundice include:

  1. Yellow-tinted eyes and skin
  2. The whites of your eyes may turn orange or brown in color
  3. Dark urine
  4. Pale stools
  5. High fatigue and vomiting (in severe cases)

Jaundice, as mentioned above, occurs when there is an excess of bilirubin and the liver is incapable of metabolizing it along with the old red blood cells. It is more common in infants than in adults, because their livers are not fully developed. However, it is also a frequent occurrence in adults and could be a potential sign of any of the following problems:

  1. Liver infection
  2. Scarring of the liver, or cirrhosis
  3. Hepatitis
  4. Alcohol abuse
  5. Liver cancer
  6. Gallstones
  7. Pancreatic cancer
  8. Blood disorders, like hemolytic anemia
  9. Parasites in the liver
  10. Abnormal reactions to or overdose of medication

Diagnostic tests may include:

  1. Jaundice is diagnosed primarily by taking blood tests, to help measure the amount of bilirubin as well as to trace the presence of other diseases like Hepatitis.
  2. Liver function tests in order to make comparisons between levels of certain proteins and enzymes when the liver is in good shape and when it is damaged.
  3. Liver biopsies, where samples of liver tissue are first extracted and later examined under a microscope.
  4. Imaging studies, consisting of abdominal ultrasounds, computed tomography scans and magnetic resonance images (MRI) tests.

Duphastan is unlikely to help you. You and your husband need fertility check up to detect whether there is any problem and then to treat it

Instead of electrolysis you can do laser. The side effects of laser are much less. Anyone above 16yrs of age can do laser.

Precautions to be taken before 1st time sex n should I use condom and how to know whether girl is virgin or not.

MBBS, DGO, DNB Gynecology)
Gynaecologist, Delhi
U should use condom whether the girl is virgin or not. Virginity can't be ascertained by you even a gynaecologist cannot be sure of a girl's virginity. And by the way why are you bothered about her virginity. If you have trust problem with her then don't rush for physical intimacy and ruin her as well as your life.

Causes and Symptoms of Genophobia

M.D.Medicine, Diploma in Diabetology
Sexologist, Jaipur
Causes and Symptoms of Genophobia

Genophobia or coitophobia is the irrational psychological fear of intercourse. It is a type of a phobia and people suffering from it fill all or most of the criteria of specific phobia according to the ICD (The International Statistical Classification of Diseases). Genophobic people may be terrified of sexual intercourse or all acts involving sex. It is different from erotophobia in the sense erotophobia is the irrational fear of sexuality and not the act in itself.


  1. The causes of genophobia may be attributed to different experiences and origins according to different psychological perspectives. According to the psychoanalytic perspective, genophobia may be caused by the rigid or extremely religious upbringing, which affected the development of ego, making the individual fear all acts that are sexual because it causes moral anxiety and a severe clash of the superego (ethical portion of one's personality)and i'd (primitive component of one's personality).
  2. According to the learning perspective, genophobia may develop due to an unpleasant sexual experience such as rape or molestation. Rape Trauma Syndrome leads the survivor to relive the trauma several times and develop apprehension. They may begin to fear sex eventually by relating it to the unpleasant experience, eventually leading to genophobia. It may also be caused if the individual observes sexual acts that are traumatizing in nature, in media or otherwise.
  3. It may also result from severe performance anxiety, especially for those who lack sexual experience and have abstained from sex for a prolonged period of time. There is also a chance that other phobias, such as the fear of diseases, especially STDs, may lead to a fear of sexual acts. Some people might relate sexual intercourse with acquiring diseases, thus leading to the development of genophobia.

Symptoms: Symptoms of genophobia include the fear of sexual intercourse and all acts within, breathlessness, nausea, dizziness, feeling sick and fear of losing control. All these symptoms take place in the context of sexual acts.

Treatment: Genophobia is treated like all other phobias. Therapeutic technique such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (a conversation centric therapy that focuses on how thoughts and beliefs can affect one's actions) is widely used in the treatment of genophobia along with medications. The therapeutic technique varies from patient to patient. For instance, the therapeutic technique used for a rape survivor would be completely different from that which is used for an individual with a fear of STDs. With proper treatment, genophobia is curable, eventually allowing the individual to have a particularly healthy sex life.

If a girl is pregnant. What are the symptoms and what should she do to avoid that pregnancy.

MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Dear lybrate-user pregnancy symptoms are many as early morning sickness frequency of urination frequent mood changes heaviness in breast and many more but you can not make a diagnosis depending upon these symptoms. For that the best way is to take a pregnancy test. And if a girl is pregnant then you can not avoid pregnancy but the only way out for unwanted pregnancy is to discontinue it. For any of the above things you will have to consult a gynaecologist.
