Drink plenty of water and cleanse your Stomach

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Delhi
Drink plenty of water and cleanse your Stomach
Drink plenty of water.

Increasing your water intake is one of the most important things you can do when attempting to cleanse your body naturally.
- you should aim to drink at least 8 glasses or 2 quarts of water throughout the day.
You can increase your intake of water by drinking a glass first thing in the morning and with every snack or meal throughout the day.

- you can also eat fruit and veg with a high water content, such as watermelon, strawberries, cucumber and tomatoes.

- water flushes toxins and impurities out of your system by helping both the kidneys and the bowel to maintain their normal functions - eliminating waste.

- water also does a great job of keeping the skin looking healthy and young, preventing wrinkles and clearing the complexion.

- water stored in copper vessels or bottles is purified and cleansed because of copper's anti-bacterial properties.

Hi lybrate-user, it could be pregnancy please get a urine pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy. Breast heaviness and heaviness in lower abdomen are signs of early pregnancy. If the test is negative then repeat it after 4 days.

Yes, Nuts and seeds are very helpful in providing strength and energy to the mother to be. In addition, drink plenty of water. Most important is to eat enough to gain weight regularly-especially if your wife is thin. It is also important to eat well. Eat fruits and food with a lot of natural fiber. The body needs food rich in proteins, vitamins, and minerals, especially iron. NOTE: Pregnant women should not eat papayas, which contain natural estrogen and may create the danger of miscarriage.

You can try following tips to enhance the chances of conception - 1) try to keep a pillow beneath your wife buttocks after sex so that gravitational force keeps the semen inside vagina for a longer time. 2) female should not get up for at least 20-25 minutes 3) try conventional position of sex female lying down on bed 4) maximum chances of conception are in day 10-18 of the cycle in case you have regular cycles. I hope these measures will help you in conception in near future.

3 Ways You Can Prevent STDs (Sexually Transmitted Diseases)

Sexologist, Delhi
3 Ways You Can Prevent STDs (Sexually Transmitted Diseases)

Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) are infections that you can get from having sex with someone who already has the infection. The causes of STDs are bacteria, parasites, and viruses. These infections often do not cause any symptoms, and can still be passed unknowingly from the infected partner to the other. However, some common symptoms include genital itching, lesions, flu / fever like symptoms and feeling pain / pressure in the lower part of the stomach.

There are many kinds of STDs including Chlamydia, gonorrhea, genital herpes, syphilis and HIV.

The important thing to understand and know is that these STDs can be prevented.

3 ways of preventing STDS are:

1. Precautions before having sex

There are some things you can do to reduce your risk of contracting STDs before having sex. This include:

  • Limiting the number of sexual partners
  • Talking honestly with partners about your sexual history
  • Getting tested, along with your partner, before having sex
  • Getting timely vaccination against HPV and HBV

If you have been diagnosed with an STD you should tell your partner about it and also explicitly ask your partner if they have had an STD.

2. Practice safe sex

Use a latex condom every time you have sex and use a water-based lubricant. If your sex life involves intercourse, anal or vaginal, make up your mind to never have sex without a condom. If you or your partner is at a high risk of STDs, be consistent about barrier use during oral sex as well. Avoid sharing towels or underclothing to reduce the risk of an STD. Check the expiration date of the condom and make sure that it has an air bubble, which shows it has not been punctured. Dispose the condom properly and never reuse it.

3. Don't drink Alcohol or use drugs before having sex

It's impossible to make responsible choices about your sex life under the influence of drugs or alcohol. When you are under the influence of any one of them, you are not in your mind and are likelier to choose a partner you wouldn't have picked otherwise. In that case, you may be at a higher risk of contracting an STD. Also, if you are on birth control pills and you vomit, the pills could lose some effectiveness.

Artificial Insemination - Are there Any Risks Associated with it

Artificial Insemination - Are there Any Risks Associated with it

These days, infertility is a rising problem. The branch of gynaecology has successfully discovered a variety of procedures, which are helpful in conceiving in an artificial manner. These are known as Artificial Reproductive Techniques (ARTs). Artificial insemination is one of them. It is often termed as intrauterine insemination, which is used as an effective treatment of infertility worldwide.

This process helps the couple in conceiving by inserting the sperm directly into the womb of the woman.  These days, most of the couples who are unable to conceive prefer to go through this process rather than going for adoption. One of the major reasons behind the immense popularity of this treatment procedure is its good success record.

There are several risks associated with this process that one should know before opting for this procedure for having a baby of their own.

  1. Multiple births because of fertility medication: When the process of artificial insemination is carried out by using the fertility medication, there are immense chances that the mother gives birth to more than one child at a time. It can be twins or even triplets. The problem associated with multiple births is that it might contribute to complications like miscarriage or premature delivery. In case of multiple births, babies are usually not healthy and they are more prone to die in the first week of birth, which is very unfortunate for the parents. Gestational diabetes is also one of the consequences that can affect the mother during pregnancy.

  2. Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome: It is not a common issue, but potentially a very serious complication. In some cases, the ovaries of a woman get swollen because of the fertility medication given during the artificial insemination process. Swelling causes symptoms like nausea, abdominal cramps, vomiting and bloating. Usually, the symptoms of OHSS include shortness of breath and chest pain that occur four to five days after the use of fertility medication. One should immediately contact the doctor, in case they notice similar kinds of symptoms during their fertility treatment.

In most of the cases when the doctor is unable to figure out the reason behind the infertility of a couple, the only alternative they suggest is the process of artificial insemination. Artificial insemination is quite an affordable and non-invasive method fertility treatment, which is preferred by thousands of couples every year. There are certain risks in this medical process and it is recommended to consult an expert gynaecologist.

Is he also interested to have a baby. The semen he gives you, flows out immediately or later. No harm. Anal sex is bad. Don`t entertain. If he has a lack of interest in sex or lack of erection at sex contact a sexologist.
