Foreplay refers to the preliminary acts preceding the sexual intercourse. Foreplay isn’t given much importance although it is the crucial part of the entire sexual experience.
Why is it important?
From the biological perspective, it is extremely important, especially for a woman to indulge in foreplay. Foreplay enhances the arousal thus, causing the erection of the clitoris. The clitoris functions similar to that of the penis. The rushing of blood to the clitoris, leads to its erection which is necessary to achieve an orgasm. Foreplay also elicits vaginal wetness which makes the proceeding penetrative sex easier and painless for both, the man and the woman. The lack of vaginal wetness causes the sexual intercourse to be rather painful and sometimes involve some amount of bleeding. Contrary to the popular myth, foreplay is equally important for both the sexes. According to research, men and women both reported of achieving better orgasms when there was a greater build-up of sexual arousal.
From the psychological perspective, foreplay instills the feeling of security and causes less vulnerability. The lack of foreplay apparently gives a sense of being neglected and denies the emotional assurance needed by most. Research shows foreplay enhances the relationship of the couple outside the bedroom. Foreplay is essentially important in long term relationships as it helps in enhancing the feelings of togetherness. Foreplay is also important in letting the partner feel they have your attention and care. It is essential in instilling psychological security and emotional wellness.
Also, it is necessary to achieve mutual pleasure from the sexual act and hence, attention must be given to the need of both the partners for a fulfilling experience. Foreplay is important in achieving orgasm, especially for women who do not necessarily achieve an orgasm through penetrative sex. With everything said and done, there is nothing wrong with an occasional skipping of the foreplay if that is what both the partners want. It is important to see what each partner is getting out of the entire sexual experience and work according to it. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Sexologist.

A hernia is a hole or weakness in the abdominal muscle wall through which the contents of the abdomen protrude out leading to a bulge. The contents push out a pouch of the abdominal lining through the weakness paving the formation of the sac of a hernia. There are different types of a hernia even though the most common of them is inguinal or a groin hernia. Other variants of a hernia include indirect inguinal hernia, direct inguinal hernia, and femoral hernia.
When should you seek medical attention for a hernia?
The newly discovered symptoms of a hernia prompt the need to visit the doctor. In some cases, hernia doesn’t necessarily require surgical treatments. But it is worthy of mention here that all hernias have the potential to become serious. When you find a new and painful tender lump, it is likely that you have an irreducible hernia.
When is a surgery recommended?
Surgery is generally recommended for all inguinal hernias for the prevention of complications including strangulation where the loop of intestine becomes trapped in a hernia very tightly. It cuts off the blood supply to the affected part of the intestine.
When a hernia can be pushed back or reduced, then the surgery is performed as per the convenience of the patient. If it cannot be pushed back to its original place, surgery is required to be performed sooner. But surgery is not altogether recommended when the hernia is small, and the affected individual does not have any signs and symptoms of a hernia.
What are the different types of surgeries available for the treatment of a hernia?
Two types of procedures can be used for the repair of an inguinal hernia- laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair and open inguinal hernia repair.
- Laparoscopic inguinal hernia surgery is similar to the common laparoscopic procedures. The patient is given general anesthesia, and a small incision is made right underneath the navel. The abdomen becomes inflated with air making it possible for the surgeon to see through the organs in the abdomen.
- In the case of an open hernia repair surgery, a single long incision is made in the groin area. When a hernia bulges out of the abdominal wall, it is pushed back into the correct place. But when a hernia is going down the inguinal canal, the hernia sac is either tied back or pushed back or removed. If you undergo this surgery, you can go home the same day while complete recovery takes about 3 weeks. Studies have found that people have lesser pain and complications after laparoscopic hernia repair compared to open hernia surgery.
Your primary healthcare provider would be able to diagnose and provide initial treatment for hernia. However, a definitive treatment requires surgery and depending on the location of a hernia and the repair surgery can be performed by the general surgeon.

The thought of waking up fresh in the morning after a good night’s sleep itself is refreshing. However, many are deprived of this simple pleasure of life, one of the main cause behind it is snoring. Whether you are snoring or have a person next to you snoring, the result is a disturbed sleep, which leaves you feeling tired and not-very-rested.
Snoring is caused by multiple reasons including stress, obesity, smoking, sinus problems, circulatory problems, poor diet, large tongue or tonsils and with age. This leaves the person sleep deprived, including a feeling of drowsiness, sore throat, increased risk of heart diseases, reduced libido and decreased concentration.
While there are surgical corrections that can get rid of snoring, yoga has some simple, effective pranayamas and asanas that have been proven to be effective since times immemorial. They improve lung capacity, help in weight management, keep the air passages open and also help in stress management. Try the following asanas and pranayamas to see snoring disappear.
Pranayama: This improves the strength of the facial and throat muscles. Bhramari or Humming Pranayama and Ujjayi pranayama are specifically useful in snoring patients. In Bhramari Pranayama, the lips are closed and the soft palate vibrations are entirely due to nasal airflow. Practised mouth snoring over a period of time where the soft palate is lifted towards the pharynx produces a buzzing bee sound. Both breathing in and out happens through the nostrils producing this sound, although slightly different during inhalation and exhalation. Ujjayi Pranayama is where a hissing breathing sound is produced due to the nasal snoring instead of the mouth snoring in the Bhramari exercise.
Breathing and Chanting the Om Mantra: Sit on the floor in a relaxed position with eyes closed and take few deep breaths. Begin to chant the word OM repeatedly for a few minutes. Break the word into two parts, the first part of OOOO should come from deep within followed by the lighter MMMM. This helps meditate, relax, and reduce snoring. Try to do this breathing and chanting at least ten to twelve times, and more if possible, on a daily basis.
Another effective measure is the Simha Garjasana or Roaring Lion Pose where you kneel down on the mat, lean back so that the hips are resting on the heels. The palms are faced in the space between the knees with fingers spread apart. Tilt your head back while taking deep breaths. This improves the airway and reduces the snoring.
Kapalbhati, Bhujangasana Dhanurasana, Warrior Pose and Surya Namaskar are also other effective asanas. When done regularly over a period of time, it helps in getting rid of snoring. This in turn makes you feel fresh in the morning; ready to take on the day. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.
