You need to get ultrasound done asap as this kind of bleeding is normal after 15 days again. Ultrasound will rule out any thing is retained inside or not.

Hi lybrate-user. Sometimes stress and hormonal imbalance can also delay periods. Besides its still too early to do the pregnancy test. I suggest you wait for another few days, 4-5 and check again with an early morning sample of urine. If still negative let me know we might have to consider other options.

Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder - How it Affects Men and Women?

Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder - How it Affects Men and Women?

Do you feel disinterested in getting physically close to your partner? If yes, then it can be a sign of HSDD, that is Hypoactive sexual desire disorder. It is a sex disorder marked by disgust and disinterest towards sex. This disorder affects both men and women.

Men with Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder
Men are generally perceived as highly sexual beings, but in reality, 1 out of 5 men may be suffering from HSDD.

Some possible causes of male HSDD include:

  1. Psychological issues: Anxiety and stress due to the strain of family or relationship problems, rigours of daily life or mental disorders such as depression are some of the factors that influence sexual desire.
  2. Medical causes: Diseases (for example: diabetes), conditions (such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure and obesity) and drugs (such as hair loss medications) have adverse effects on sexual desire.
  3. Hormonal problems: Low levels of testosterone usually lead to low sexual desire. Other hormones, such as the thyroid hormone or prolactin (hormone that governs the development of breast milk) can also contribute to the cause.
  4. Low levels of dopamine: Dopamine is a neurotransmitter, which is responsible for the pleasure perception in your brain. Low levels of dopamine usually signify low sexual desire.

How it can be treated ?
If the cause is psychological, then sex therapy (psychological counselling based on sexual issues) is used to treat HSDD. But if it is hormonal, testosterone supplements are used.

Women with Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder
Female HSDD is more complicated and is difficult to diagnose. HSDD can affect women across all ages.

In women, this disorder can have a wider spectrum of causes, which include:

  1. Interpersonal relationship problems: Certain problems such as the partner’s performance issues, loss of emotional gratification with relationships, childbirth and becoming nothing, but only a loved one’s caregiver can all lead to low sexual desire.
  2. Sociocultural influences: Media’s portrayal of sexuality, peer pressure and job stress have negative influences on sexual desire.
  3. Low testosterone: Women produce testosterone as well, and similar to men, low levels of this sex hormone cause a significant dip in sexual desire.
  4. Medical problems: Mental illnesses such as depression or medical problems, such as fibroids or endometriosis (a disorder characterized by the growth of uterine tissues outside the organ) affect women, physically and mentally, thus making ‘hypoactive sexual desire disorder’ a possibility.
  5. Medications: Excessive use of antidepressants, oral contraceptives and blood pressure drugs can lower sexual desire.
  6. Age: The androgen (sex hormone) levels lower drastically as a woman ages, thus negatively impacting her sexual desires.

Treatment

Sex therapy (therapy that concerns itself with counselling and addressing one’s physical or psychological hindrances to sex) medication changes, diagnosing underlying medical problems, vaginal estrogens and testosterone therapy (therapy that helps in managing the effects of low levels of testosterone) are mostly used to increase sexual desire in women. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a sexologist and ask a free question.

Why has your wife turned frigid?

BHMS, C.S.D.(Skin Diseases), M.D.(Medicine), M.Sc. in Counselling and Psychotherapy
Homeopath,
Why has your wife turned frigid?

Frigidity is commonly referred to as low sex drive in women. But it is often emotionally mistaken as on Non-responsiveness to partner's sexual advances. It is often considered as the psychological problem in person's subconscious mind. This has to be addressed at the earliest. 

It has been differentiated into two types:

  1. One is the condition where the women fail to respond .
  2. The other is the condition where the women may have difficulty in being aroused. This causes feeling of pain and discomfort. 

CAUSES OF FRIGIDITY: 

Most common causes are menopause-related hormonal changes. Few other causes are : 

Emotional Causes of Frigidity: 

  1. Past traumatic sexual experiences such as sexual assault or rape.
  2. Fear of pregnancy or sexually transmitted diseases.
  3. Emotional distance from the partner.
  4. Emotions like depression, anxiety or boredom in a relationship.
  5. Communication problems like an unresolved emotional issue that takes place between partners.
  6. Lack of confidence or low self-esteem.

Physical Causes of Frigidity: 

  1. Discomfort or pain during intercourse. 
  2. Lack of foreplay. 
  3. Poor sexual performance in male. 
  4. Fatigue or Exhaustion, Insomnia and Vaginal dryness.
  5. Effects of prescribed medications, alcohol abuse.
  6. Hormonal imbalance 
  7. Menopause.

TREATMENT AND MANAGEMENT:

(I) Natural Treatment 

  1. Intake of avocados, eggs, oysters, olive oil, soy, sesame oil, pumpkin seeds, nuts, sprouts chocolates, Zinc rich food and Vitamin E in your diet. 
  2. Include Herbs such as Siberia Ginseng, Chive, Damiana, Kava, Muira Pauma, Wild Yam, Ginger root, Sarsaparilla.
  3. Dong Quai are very effective in curing women frigidity. 
  4. Regular yoga and exercises boost overall sexual health. 
  5. Read erotic books or watch erotic movies along with your partner. 
  6. Quality sleeps and de-stress spas and body massage. 
  7. Avoid sugary food items, red meat and poultry. 

(II) Seeking professional help

  1. Eradicating relationship issues with the help of counseling. 
  2. Psychotherapy in order to get rid of your hidden fears. 
  3. If required, do see a gynaecologist for proper examination and assessment. 

(III) How can your rekindle her lost passion

Here are pointers as to how to help a woman know she is loved. From this will flow astounding benefits, including bringing her to the peak of her sexuality.

  1. Praise her. Regularly find things you like about her physical appearance, her character and her abilities, and verbalize your admiration. Appreciate all that she does for you and freely express your gratitude.
  2. Be loyal to her. Don’t say negative things about her behind her back. Defend her if anyone speaks negatively about her. Don?t undermine her authority in front of the children.
  3. If you use humor that puts her down, be extremely careful. She might, laugh but at times your words could be damaging her. Try to wean yourself off such humor.
  4. Seek to discover her inner feelings. Try to be sensitive to her needs. This is a huge challenge for most men.
  5. Giver her time: Recognize and make allowances for times when she is tired or upset or not her usual self.
  6. Respect her opinions. You might not always agree with her, but try to. Thoughtfully consider her views. Never rubbish them.
  7. Consult your wife before making decisions. Share your plans and dreams with her. Be open and honest with her about every aspect of your life
  8. Regularly ask her such things as:
    • What can I do to make you feel more loved?
    • What can I do to boost your confidence and help you feel good about yourself?
    • What can we do to make sex more exciting and fulfilling for you?

Perhaps you are scared to ask such questions for fear she will say something like, “Help more around the house”. Be brave! If this really is high on her priorities for feeling loved, then it is important. More is at stake than a bit of housework. It touches her emotional well-being and your entire marriage. Only she knows the critical elements in making her feel loved.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

I am 32 years old girl. Got married 2 months before, got treatment for pus cells. My problem is of dry vagina duvets which have painful intercourse as well difficulty in sex arousal.

Advanced Aesthetics
Ayurveda, Gulbarga
Normally, the walls of the vagina stay lubricated with a thin layer of clear fluid. The hormone estrogen helps maintain that fluid and keeps the lining of the vagina healthy, thick, and elastic. During menopause, the drop in estrogen levels reduces the amount of moisture available. It also makes the vagina thinner and less elastic. This is called vaginal atrophy other causes of vaginal dryness include: sj gren's syndrome (an autoimmune disorder that attacks cells in the body that produce moisture) allergy and cold medications and certain antidepressants douching lack of enough foreplay before sexual intercourse no matter what the cause, vaginal dryness can be extremely uncomfortable. It can lead to itching, burning, and painful intercourse. Insufficient arousal. In some cases, vaginal dryness may be caused by a low libido or sexual problems with a partner? if a partner has poor performance and early ejaculation, it can contribute to vaginal dryness? treatment lubricants? there are a plethora of lubricants that can help vaginal dryness? says goldstein. They include silicone-based, oil-based, and water-based products. Lubricants are usually used to make sex less uncomfortable rather than for long-term vaginal lubrication. Moisturizers. Over-the-counter vaginal moisturizers can be an effective way to minimize vaginal dryness over several days with one application? moisturizing agents help introduce water into the tissue of the vagina? says goldstein. For more queries ask privately.

M.Ch - Surgical Oncology
Oncologist,
Hi, no need to worry. These lumps are part of normal changes in the breast with age. Sometimes they may be painful especially during menses. If the lump is large or painful, it can be removed surgically. It won't turn into cancer, so don't worry. Consult a surgeon if want to get it removed. Hope this helps. Take care.

Hair fall has many reasons. Lack of proper sleep, diet, stress etc can lead to hair loss. As leucorrhoea and menstrual irregularities are there, hormonal imbalance could be there. Take good sleep. Drink plenty of water. Eat food which is rich in proteins and vitamins. Do exercise and pranayama regularly. See for 1 month. Then, consult back.

Irregular periods usually signal an ovulation disorder ie abnormality in egg formation hence is most probably a contributing factor in difficulty in conception. You need to undergo hormonal blood tests and Ultrasound to determine the cause and management accordingly

If a women’s menstrual cycle varies from 26days to 31days cycle, The shortest cycle (26days) minus18days=8th day. The longest cycle (31days) minus 10days=21st day Thus, 8th to 21st day of each cycle counting from first day of menstrual period is considered as fertile period. That is UNSAFE PERIOD during which you should not have it. Period other than this fertile period in a menstrual cycle is considered as SAFE PERIOD.
