All About Female Condoms

MD
Sexologist, Srinagar
All About Female Condoms

It is important that you protect yourself from various types of diseases and infections as much as possible. Female condoms are used to have protected intercourse so as to avoid contact with ejaculatory fluids. These condoms help a person to steer clear of blood, semen and vaginal fluids as well. Female condoms fall under the category of barrier contraceptives. They are considered to be less effective in comparison to male condoms, but are nonetheless good for preventing any kind of infection. Ensuring fine health through safe sex is your due responsibility. Hence, a little knowledge about these contraceptives is helpful if you wish to shun chances of unwanted pregnancy or Sexually Transmitted Diseases. 

What is it like?
A female condom looks like an ill  fitting hollow cylinder. It is a thin sheath with a closed end, that goes inside the vagina and an open end that remains outside the vagina covering other external, genital parts. The covered end has to be inserted into the vagina or into the anus. It is a misconception, that female condoms can only be used by females. It is predominantly used by females, but can also be used by any receptive partner during sexual intercourse. The ends have circular rings to keep the condom in place. 

What are they made of? 
Femidoms are usually made up of polyurethane. This material is expensive, making the product costly. The need for a cost effective product was immediately felt to encourage the use of condoms among females. Thus, the next generation of female condoms were made with synthetic Nitrile. Nitrile proved to be a competent substitute as it did away with the annoying noises polyurethane made during sex. It also reduced condom pricing considerably. Researchers have also come up with natural latex female condoms that retain the feel of a male condom. 

Benefits of using a female condom
It is a great barrier in thwarting the flow of semen into the womb. Thus, they reduce the risk of accidental pregnancy. It also protects you against sexually transmitted infections like gonorrhoea, Syphilis, and HIV. Sex partners should be careful to refrain from any sexual contact before the insertion of a female condom. Only after the condom has been placed properly, the penis should enter the vagina or the anus. Femidoms are available in varied sizes, but the average sized condom fits most females. Large sized condoms can be used by new mothers. It is advised to buy condoms that bear the CE mark on them. The CE mark represents European Safety Standards and thus, leaves you least vulnerable to accidents or diseases.

Hello, Growth hormones plays a major role in achieving milestones of the body. If you have a low hormone level dont go for a synthetic/chemical replacement of hormones as it is risky and can cause serious disabilities, grow for herbal supplements and medicines for your complaints. Practice yogasanas,they stimulate the Pitutary gland and can accelerate your slow growth along with the herbs.

I want to know about medical abortion. Does it requires doctor's assistance or can be conducted at home. Is it very painful? What precautions needed?

DGO, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Bhavnagar
You have to take tablets as per the schedule. No you don't require doctor for that. You can take it at home only. It can be painful. Take the tablets strictly as suggested. I hope you have done pregnancy test and it is positive. Keep in mind that there are chances of failure and continuous bleeding per vaginal even if aborted. You may require ultrasonography for that. Otherwise also after abortion go for ultrasonography for confirmation and to be on safer side.

Foods to avoid when Pregnant

Foods to avoid when Pregnant


Avoid alcohol during pregnancy. Alcohol has been linked to premature delivery, mental retardation, birth defects, and low birthweight babies.

Limit caffeine to no more than 300 mg per day. The caffeine content in various drinks depends on the beans or leaves used and how it was prepared. An 8-ounce cup of coffee has about 150 mg of caffeine on average while black tea has typically about 80 mg. A 12-ounce glass of caffeinated soda contains anywhere from 30-60 mg of caffeine. Remember, chocolate (especially dark chocolate) contains caffeine -- sometimes a significant amount.

The use of saccharin is strongly discouraged during pregnancy, because it can cross the placenta and may remain in fetal tissues. But, the use of other non-nutritive or artificial sweeteners approved by the FDA is acceptable during pregnancy. These FDA-approved sweeteners include aspartame (Equal or NutraSweet), acesulfame-K (Sunett), and sucralose (Splenda). These sweeteners are considered safe in moderation, so talk with your health care provider about how much non-nutritive sweetener is acceptable during pregnancy.

Decrease the total amount of fat you eat to 30% or less of your total daily calories. For a person eating 2000 calories a day, this would be 65 grams of fat or less per day.
Limit cholesterol intake to 300 mg or less per day.

Do not eat shark, swordfish, king mackerel, or tilefish (also called white snapper), because they contain high levels of mercury.

Avoid soft cheeses such as feta, Brie, Camembert, blue-veined, and Mexican-style cheese. These cheeses are often unpasteurized and may cause Listeria infection. There’s no need to avoid hard cheese, processed cheese, cream cheese, cottage cheese, or yogurt.

Avoid raw fish, especially shellfish like oysters and clams.

Dear lybrate-user, you should complete your akt course for tb. A urine culture report can rule out any possibility of urine infection for frequent urination and if possible consult urologist if frequency is too bad. After akt if you do not conceive in 6-8 months a laparoscopy can be done to assess the tubal status and treatment for fertility will be as per the status of fallopian tubes.

How quickly can my wife catch pregnancy after mensuration cycle? If you could just help me with the process.
Pregnancy can occur only by intercourse around ovulation. In a woman having 28 days regular cycle that period is considered as from day 10 to 17 counting from first day of last period. If periods have different cycle depending on that counting changes. Pregnancy can occur only one day of cycle that is ovulation day so unprotected sex around that day only important. As only one day in month nature should be given 12-24 trials (12 to 24 months) before couple need any active management by Gynecologist or infertility specialist.

Stretch Marks Post Pregnancy - Ways You Can Get Rid of them

MD, ExSR Dermatologist AIIMS New Delhi
Dermatologist, Delhi
Stretch Marks Post Pregnancy - Ways You Can Get Rid of them

Ask any woman who had a baby in the last one year, as to what was one of her major complaints post pregnancy and the answer would be “stretch marks.” And, if you think of the belly as the only affected area, you are wrong! Even the breasts, calves and arms are affected.

The skin stretches beyond its limits in a short period of time and so these stretch marks appear. It is more common with women who have had excessive weight gain and with multiple babies. It is also hereditary and women with oily skin are less likely to have them. Also, women who regularly apply moisturizer have fewer stretch marks. However, there definitely are ways to both avoid and reduce the stretch marks.

Prevention is definitely more effective.

  1. Stretch mark creams can be used from day one of pregnancy, which can help reduce the formation of these marks.
  2. A good cream could also help eliminate existing stretch marks from earlier pregnancies, in addition to preventing new ones from forming.
  3. It is best to use the cream both during day and night after a warm shower. This will help the skin to absorb the cream optimally, making it more effective.
  4. Preventive lotions have a combination of cocoa butter, shea butter, honey, aloe vera and various oils including almond, castor, olive, vitamin E, and other essential oils. Each of them has their own effective way to control stretch marks.
  5. Other preventive measures include exercise, exfoliation using a scrubber and eating a diet which is low in zinc.

But treatment is the solution if prevention is not possible.

  1. Soon after pregnancy, try and use creams that contain cocoa butter, glycolic acid, various oils like almond, vitamin E, castor, and olive which will help manage the stretch marks.
  2. A good massage using these oils has proved to be one of the best ways to manage stretch marks on the belly and breasts.
  3. There are various on-the-shelf products nowadays for treating these marks, but use the one prescribed by your doctor. The way these chemicals get absorbed and excreted may not be clear to you and if you are breast-feeding, it is safer to consult a doctor before using such items.
  4. In addition to the creams, exercise and sufficient hydration are also essential to help stretch marks disappear.
  5. Laser surgery is another option which can do any of these 3 things – produce pigments in the lighter areas, improve collagen production in the depressed areas, or reduce the color of the darker areas in a stretch mark. Though offered widely, this is best avoided given the side effects.

Stretch marks are an integral part of pregnancy and it is best to let nature run its course after doing everything to prevent it or treating it safely. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Hello Doc, can I take hot water bath before sleep in periods? Would it be useful for body ache due to periods?
Yes. Hot water shower especially before going to sleep will relieve the menstrual cramps as a result of hot water flowing over the sore areas of the body. Also adding a few drops of essential oils of your choice will help in increasing the overall effect of your healing. Your feedback matters. Thank-you.
