You're most likely to get pregnant if you have sex within a day or so of ovulation (releasing an egg from the ovary). This is usually about 14 days after the first day of your last period. An egg lives for about 12-24 hours after its released. For pregnancy to happen, the egg must be fertilised by a sperm within this time. If you want to get pregnant, having sex every couple of days will mean there s always sperm waiting in the fallopian tubes to meet the egg when it's released. Sperm can live for up to seven days inside a womans body. So if you've had sex in the days before ovulation, the sperm will have had time to travel up the fallopian tubes to wait for the egg to be released. It s difficult to know exactly when ovulation happens, unless you are practising natural family planning, or fertility awareness. The menstrual cycle is counted from the first day of a woman's period (day one). Some time after her period she will ovulate, and then around 12-14 days after this she ll have her next period. The average cycle takes 28 days, but shorter or longer cycles are normal any queries inform me.

If you calculate day 1 as start of the cycle and each cycle is of 30 days. Then day 5-8 is safe then day 16-30 is safe. Day 7-16 is unsafe. Day 9-14 is most unsafe. Safe days means there are no chances of pregnancy during sex these days.

I am an engineering student in VIT university. My basic problem is I am on more weight than it has to be for my height. I can reduce it by doing exercises or anything but the problem is I am thin on the upper part and fatty on the bottom. I hope you got me. Also my hip was somewhat wide but that was from my mother genes. So with this I looked like very thin feature from face, neck,hands, abdomen and from there it looks like an unmatched one. Is there any solution that I could get out of this because it does not look good when I wear series for any functions. Please do tell me.

shed weight the healthy way minus diet harts or rigid exercise plans. give up sugars and take less carbs like wheat/rice/bread/maida. reduce salt to minimum but you can sprinkle some spices on salads. boiled eggs/ roasted chane/ nuts are filling an d good source of proteins and healthy fats. eat as much as you like and can digest- seasonal fruits and vegetables one meal a day during evening only-roti-daal-subji-rice. no munching. walking is simple exercise cum meditation. swimming is good if facility available. get back after a month. since you are in a professional college and you have to study lots , do not do extra dieting /exercise.

Symptoms of Chlamydia and Ways to Treat the Disease

M.D.MEDICINE , Diploma in Diabetology
Sexologist, Jaipur
Symptoms of Chlamydia and Ways to Treat the Disease

One of the most common physically transmitted diseases is chlamydia. Chlamydia is a type of infection caused by the bacteria "Chlamydia trachomatis". The symptoms of Chlamydia are similar to the symptoms of Gonorrhoea (a bacterial sexually transmitted infection). Chlamydia infection causes permanent fallopian tube damage in women, leads to future ectopic pregnancy (the fertilised egg attaches itself outside the uterus) and infertility.

Symptoms of Chlamydia:
Men and women afflicted with chlamydia exhibit different symptoms.

The symptoms of chlamydia in women include:

  1. Abnormal, sometimes foul-smelling, vaginal discharge
  2. Bleeding between menstrual cycles
  3. Painful periods
  4. Abdominal pain, accompanied with fever
  5. Pain during intercourse
  6. Burning or itching around or in the vagina
  7. Painful urination

Men usually display the following symptoms if they have chlamydia:

  1. Minimal amounts of cloudy or clear discharge from the head of the penis
  2. Painful urination
  3. Itching and burning around the slit of the penis
  4. Swollen and painful testicles

Treatment options available:

  1. Chlamydia is diagnosed by taking a swab from the cervix (in women) or the urethra (in men). These swabs will be sent to the laboratory for analysis. Urine samples can also be taken to check for the appearance of bacteria.
  2. Since chlamydia is a bacterial infection, it can be easily treated with antibiotics. Oral antibiotics such as azithromycin or doxycycline are commonly prescribed by doctors. Azithromycin is usually prescribed in a large, single dose. The dose may also be stretched out for five days. Doxycycline is taken two times daily for a week.
  3. With the right antibiotic therapy, the infection will clear up in 1 to 2 weeks approximately. It is very important that you finish the medication course if you wish you heal completely without having to suffer from further bouts of this disorder.
  4. Women with critical chlamydia may need hospitalisation, pain medicine and IV (intravenous, or directly through the vein) antibiotics. Pregnant women with chlamydia infection can be safely cured with antibiotic such as erythromycin ethylsuccinate, amoxicillin and azithromycin.

Your partner needs testing and treatment as well to avoid further spread and reinfection. It is vital not to engage in any sexual activity while the treatment is ongoing. A further retest should be done three months later to make sure the infection is rectified. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Get rid of fear of pregnancy. Delayed period, putting on weight all are part of PCOD. Meet Gynecologist for long term treatment of PCOD. One part of treatment is to reduce weight.

Hello may I know what are the reasons for mensturation stop (excluding pregnancy).

M.B.S.(HOMEO), MD - Homeopathy
Homeopath, Visakhapatnam
There are three main causes of primary amenorrhea: chromosomal or genetic abnormalities can cause the ovaries to stop functioning normally. Turner syndrome, a condition caused by a partially or completely missing x chromosome, and androgen insensitivity syndrome, often characterized by high levels of testosterone, are two examples of genetic abnormalities that can delay or disrupt menstruation. 1 hypothalamic or pituitary problems in the brain and physical problems such as problems with reproductive organs can prevent periods from starting. Excessive exercise, eating disorders, extreme physical or psychological stress, or a combination of these factors can delay the onset of menstruation. Secondary amenorrhea can result from various causes, such as: natural causes. Pregnancy is the most common cause. Other natural causes include breastfeeding and menopause. Medications and therapies. Certain birth control pills, injectable contraceptives, and intrauterine devices (iuds) can cause amenorrhea. It can take a few months after stopping birth control for the menstrual cycle to restart and become regular. Some medications, including certain antidepressants and blood pressure medications, can increase the levels of a hormone that prevents ovulation and the menstrual cycle. Chemotherapy and radiation treatments for hematologic cancer (including blood, bone marrow, and lymph nodes) and breast or gynecologic cancer can destroy estrogen-producing cells and eggs in the ovaries, leading to amenorrhea. The resulting amenorrhea may be short-term, especially in younger women. Sometimes scar tissue can build up in the lining of the uterus, preventing the normal shedding of the uterine lining in the menstrual cycle. This scarring sometimes occurs after a dilation and curettage (d&c), a procedure in which tissue is removed from the uterus to diagnose or treat heavy bleeding or to clear the uterine lining after a miscarriage, 4 a cesarean section, or treatment for uterine fibroids. Gynecological conditions. Unbalanced hormone levels are common features of certain conditions that have secondary amenorrhea as a main symptom. These can include: polycystic ovary syndrome (pcos). Pcos occurs when a woman's body produces more androgens (a type of hormone) than normal. High levels of androgens can cause fluid-filled sacs or cysts to grow in the ovaries, interfering with the release of eggs (ovulation). Most women with pcos either have amenorrhea or experience irregular periods, called oligomenorrhea (pronounced ol-i-goh-men-uh-ree-uh). Fragile x-associated primary ovarian insufficiency (fxpoi). The term fxpoi describes a condition in which a woman's ovaries stop functioning before normal menopause, sometimes around age 40. Fxpoi results from certain changes to a gene on the x chromosome. As many as 10% of women who thyroid problems. The thyroid is a small butterfly-shaped gland at the base of the neck, just below the adam's apple. The thyroid produces hormones that control metabolism and play a role in puberty and menstruation. A thyroid gland that is overactive (called hyperthyroidism) or underactive (hypothyroidism) can cause menstrual irregularities, including pituitary tumor. Noncancerous tumors in the pituitary gland in the brain, which regulates the production of hormones that affect many body functions, including metabolism and the reproductive cycle, can interfere with the body's hormonal regulation of menstruation.

There is another ovary which is still there and single ovary is competent enough to manage all the needs of women. As the ovary was twisted that part of your body was dead and that is why it was removed.

Reasons: Why Your Man is Weak in Bed

Reasons: Why Your Man is Weak in Bed

Reasons: Why Your Man is Weak in Bed

A lot of women have issues in their marriages because the sex department has gone down the drain and this has led to many women being sexually frustrated.

Sex is an important part of a couple’s life, and when it goes wrong, it could gradually affect other parts of the relationship.

These are some possible reasons why your man is weak in bed.

1. STRESS

When stressed, the body releases adrenaline and cortisol which can result in a low sex drive. In response to stress, the arteries can also restrict blood flow, which can lead to erectile dysfunction.

2. LACK OF SLEEP 

Sleep is highly important, and is especially good for a man’s sex life. A good sleep would lead to a healthy body and mind; sleep provides the opportunity to refresh your body system. A lack of sleep can trigger an elevated cortisol levels, which would lead to poor sex drive.

3. ALCOHOL USE AND DRUG ABUSE 

Excessive alcohol intake can also impair a man’s sexual drive. Too much alcohol intake can impair his nervous system, leading to fatigue, which would make it more difficult for him to maintain an erection during sex.

Marijuana and other drugs can also affect a man’s sex drive; they can suppress the pituitary gland which regulates the production of testosterone.

4. LOW SELF-ESTEEM

When a man isn’t feeling confident or capable, this can affect his performance. When a man doesn’t feel good about his body, his organ or himself, he would definitely have a poor time in bed.

5. ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION

Erectile dysfunction is another huge factor for poor performance in men. It is the inability to get or keep an erection firm enough to have sexual intercourse.

Having erection trouble occasionally isn’t necessarily a cause for concern, but when it keeps coming then it could be a sign of an underlying health condition that needs treatment.

6. DEPRESSION

There is a definite link between libido and depression. When a man is feeling depressed, he would definitely find it difficult to get excited for sex; it would be almost impossible to get him aroused.

Do you think your man is weak in bed? These might just be some of the possible reasons why.

She is suffering from obsessive compulsive disorder but I will not suggest any medicines for it. With reports of water & air pollution & other contagious diseases flashing everywhere, one does get scary about hygiene. She needs counselling from someone who can understand her & whom she trusts. Show her doctors and nurses working non stop among all kinds of patients & doing great jobs of saving lives of others. Tell her about not being selfish and finicky about just her own life. May be simple advice helps her.

Having sex with a partner who allegedly has sex with multiple partners is always risky, no matter whatever precautions you take. However if you are risking it, it's better you take all necessary precautions to be safe from sexually transmitted diseases.
