Hi sir. I am newly marriage couple doing intercourse my partner cause irritation. After completed sex also long time irritation in there. What is the problem tell me.

Hello, Internal lubrication of your partner is not secreting properly,which is causing pain, burning and irritation during sex. Use artificial lubrication during sex,use condom as its surface reduces the friction and hence minimise the pain. These are symptomatic solutions. For permanent relief start ayurvedic medicines and avoid excess of spicy and fast foods for you wife.

If you are having no pain or excessive bleeding, you can continue your regular exercise during menses. No medicine is needed if menses appearing naturally. Medicines needed only when menses dosent appear in time.

My wife having bleeding after menstrual cycle on day of 8th and 9th, what are the causes or is there any thing serious please let me know.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
The condition is termed as Metrorrhagia also known as the dysfunctional uterine bleeding is a problem that women suffer from.Basically, this condition is characterized by bleeding episodes (mainly spotting but can lead to severe bleeding) outside the menstrual phase. Metrorrhagia is considered a symptom of a possible health problem but shouldn’t be handled as a serious health problem right away. One should not panic. Some of the main cause are----------- • Endometrial hyperplasia. • Uterine cancer.. • Ruptured polyps. • Cervical dysplasia. • Cervicitis. • Abortion or miscarriage. • Infection. • Hormonal imbalance. • Coagulation problems. • Use of contraception. So consult a Gynaecologist for physical examination.

Eat more in the first half

Eat more in the first half

Your metabolism is not the same in the evening as it was in the morning because you are not as active at night. The level of activity decreases as the day progresses, as does your metabolism. If you must stray from your healthy eating plan, eat more in the first half of the day, during lunch and brunch.

Hi, She got pregnant now, she is 2 months, at this time she wnts to do sex, is having sex any problem to do sex in this time. Please advise.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Yes sex can be practice during pregnancy at this time and in future also. It does not cause abortion or bleeding. After 5 months of pregnancy one needs to change the position of male partner. Intercourse can be practised in male standing position or sideways position. Male partner should not lie on the tummy or growing fetus.

After insertion IUCD before five days, my wife feeling leakage of excess lukoria from vagina. Dr. Advised her five day antibiotic with mefnaic acid and antacid. Whats the reason.

Diploma in Family Medicine, M.Sc - Psychotherapy
Sexologist, Pune
IUCD has its problems at least for a month or so in the beginning. It is common to prescribe antibiotics because it is an insertion of a foreign body inside the uterus. Your wife can finish the course of medication and wait for at least one month to see how she fares.

General Physician, Nashik
Eating well can help you have a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby. Don't forget breakfast. Eat foods with fiber. Choose healthy snacks. Take a prenatal vitamin with iron and folic acid every day. Eat up to 12 ounces a week (2 average meals) of fish or shellfish.

My gf got pregnant its conformed by urine test. Right now its not correct time for baby v want to abort how to abort naturally last period was 28 march. Suggest me quick plz.

Obstetrician, Pune
Hello lybrate-user. As you have written that your girl friend is pregnant and confirmation is done by urine pregnancy test. I advice you to take her for ultrasonography with the letter of obstetrician, USG will give very clear idea about the duration of pregnancy and location of the pregnancy. If her pregnancy size is small and intra uterine then she can undergo medical termination of pregnancy under the care of experienced obstetrician. She should do haemogram and blood group before this procedure.

Travelling does not cause any problem but sudden problem can happen to anyone even when is lying down in bed. Only difference travelling makes is you find little difficult to reach to doctor of your choice in case some problem occurs. To my family member I would advise to go ahead in travelling understanding and accepting these facts.

Hello, You should not take unwanted 72 so frequently. You should first do a urine pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy. If the result is positive, consult a gynaecologist for further evaluation and management.

What could be the reasons for a 16 year old to have extremely dark red (blackish) bleeding during periods? There are symptoms of irregularity too & the patient doesn't drink water at all. The patient has complex sexual abuse history.

It may be due to ovarian cyst or uterine myoma. Need to check with usg. Also need to check thyroid, prolactine level in the blood. For medicinal purpose you can contact me through Lybrate.

5 Foods for Healthy Living

5 Foods for Healthy Living

We often tend to ignore our diet. Every day we carefully separate the greens on our plate and eat only what we like. We eat all kinds of fast food and then claim that we will burn it in the gym, but soon when the weighing scale shows no change or shows an increase, we tend to get agitated and claim, “Even after I go to the gym daily, I am unable to reduce my weight”.

Now this line is the most common thing, which comes out of your mouth, and others mouth too. It is indeed sad that people tend to ignore the fact that ‘health is 80% dietary control and 20% physical exertion’, this is the reason why it is said you are what you eat. So now, let me tell you about some of the foodstuff you ought to eat to maintain health.

Hence some healthy options for your platter, health and looks are:


Turmeric or ‘Haldi’ is a fine yellow powder, which is used to add color and taste to your dishes. Turmeric is also an antiseptic and is often applied on wounds and cuts. Some other benefits of Turmeric are that they help to combat stomach troubles, sore throat, skin problems, cough, ear and eye problems.


Onions are almost added to every dish to make it tasty and add a flavor and an aroma to it. Onions are very useful to cure to stomach related problems. Onions also are rich in Vitamin C and riboflavin.


Many often dislike the vegetable fenugreek or ‘methi’, but people fail to realize that it is a rich source of vitamins and minerals. Fenugreek is a cure for stomach problems, respiratory disorders, body odor and is also very effective in controlling diabetes.


 Now that summer is in the air and every ones sweating profusely, it is natural that your body is going to be devoid of water. Well watermelon provides more than hydration, it is also effective in curing erectile dysfunction, skin problems, preventing cancer, etc.


Eggplants are rich in nasunin, phosphorous, vitamin A, vitamin C, sulphur, fiber and potassium, which help in shielding your brains cells from harm due to old age. They also help to prevent stroke and dementia. Eggplants are very good for health and it to be made a part of your diet.

Hence, these are some of the ingredients, which you ought to add to your diet.

I am 4 months and 2 weeks pregnant. My doctor gave me liquid calcium two weeks earlier, however, I have only taken it once. Is it safe to mix it with boxed orange juice?

It is much better to take it with milk, and iron can be taken with orange juice. Generally it is good to take it after a meal, as it will promote better absorption. To help you better we would like to know what is the liquid calcium that is prescribed to you.

Achilles Tendon - How To Deal With It

Fellowship, MS - Orthopaedics, MBBS

Achilles Tendon - How To Deal With It

Achilles Tendon pain is an orthopedic condition that can originate from tears and ruptures to the AchillesTendon, which is known as one of the strongest and also the longest tendon in the human body. It is a band of tissues that decides the quality of your movements and motions to a great extent, as it connects the heel with the calf. Therefore, any injury to this tendon can decrease the strength and support to the muscles and create a painful situation. So how can you deal with this pain? Read on to know more.

  • Rice Therapy: Rice is a commonly used term by orthopedic specialist. It refers to Rest, Ice, Compression with a bandage, and finally Elevation. The patient must take lots of rest as well as use ice packs to deal with the injury and acute pain. Finally, the area must be compressed with a bandage and kept elevated on cushions.
  • Surgery: For very severe cases, the orthopedic specialist can recommend surgery as well. This kind of surgery aims at reattaching the displaced or ruptured tendon which may have reached such a fate through a sports or any other kind of injury. The doctor may also place your leg in a cast for a few weeks to keep it at complete rest. 
  • Pain Medication: The doctor can also prescribe pain relievers that contain Ibuprofen as well as acetaminophen or even naproxen. These medicines should be taken in moderation as per the doctor's prescription. Usually, this kind of medication is taken only when unbearable pain is experienced by the patient.
  • Thermotherapy or Heat Treatment: The use of heat for chronic pain or even pain that has been ailing for over 48 hours is known as thermotherapy. This therapy uses heating pads and hot water bottles to help relieve the pain. One must be careful while applying anything hot to the site of the injury. Use a towel to wrap the hot water bottle or heating pad so that there is no scalding or leaking on to the skin.
  • Footwear: It is important to prevent continuous injury and pain to the already injured Achilles tendon. To do this, you must wear supportive and comfortable footwear that has heel lifts and other customized orthotics built into the shoes. 

Taking care of Achilles Tendon pain is a matter of taking various precautions and supportive actions that lead to better healing.
