Prevention of STDs

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Sexologist, Faridabad
Prevention of STDs

A healthy and physically fit body is a prerequisite of a happy life, thus it is important that we prevent our body from STDs. STDs are nothing, but those diseases that are usually invited by sexual intimacy or intercourse. Some of these diseases are even life threatening at times, and if you want to prevent them, then you have to adopt a few preventive measures.

Best preventive measures for preventing STDs:

  • Using latex condoms: Latex condoms need to be used during sex every time, and these condoms are the safest of all condom varieties available in the market. Both pregnancy and STDs can be easily and efficiently prevented by means of these condoms, and this is the reason everybody is using the same. But you should have the knowledge of correct usage of these condoms.
  • Keeping intimate areas clean: Do not ever forget to wash your genitals after or before making intercourse with your partner and this is needed for preventing sexual diseases. Sometimes, excessive lubrication during sexual intercourse brings infectious diseases and thus, your genitals get exposed to sexual diseases. 
  • Stop sharing items: Sharing undergarments or towels with your friends or close mates can be very much dangerous as you might develop STDs. Even if you have allowed somebody using these personal items of yours, you have to wash them carefully before using the same. 
  • Avoid multiple sex partners: Both the sex partners should be loyal to each other and should not make sex with multiple partners as that will invite STDs. Having sex with more than one partner can be quite dangerous as a result of which your genital organs get infected and this infection later on turns into serious sexual diseases that cannot be easily treated. 
  • Avoiding unhealthy lifestyle: If you are exposed to excessive smoking, drugs and alcohol, then you might develop different kinds of STDs. Therefore, you are highly recommended to lead a completely healthy lifestyle so that a healthy sexual life can be enjoyed. You will never be able to have safe sex if you are so very addicted to alcohol, smoking and drugs. 
  • Have vaccination: Vaccination is now considered as one of the safest methods for preventing STDs. HPV vaccines are the popular, and the most recommended ones and thus, teenagers can take them before getting sexually active. Hepatitis-B vaccinations are also required for getting increased protection against serious sexual diseases, especially AIDS and others. HIV testing is also very much essential in this regard, and you should not avoid the same.

Is it ok to take flax seeds powder after lunch n dinner for height gain? I hope it will not make me fat?

Is it ok to take flax seeds powder after lunch n dinner for height gain?
I hope it will not make me fat?
Flax seeds are known to bring down cholesterol , I have no idea whether they lead to increase in height . Take high protein diet , drink lots of toned milk and milk products like curds and lassi, do stretching exercises. Girls do gain height after 19 years , do not follow the data that shows girls stop growing tall after they get their periods.

few days of irregular periods is normal as every month doesn't have 30 days regarding ovulation studies, go for ultrasound done around tenth day of cycle and look for follicles and eggs in ovaries it's more reassuring compared to other methods like kits and checking the slight rise in body temperature during morning of the day ovulation occurs

Thalassemia - What Exactly Is It?

MBBS, MD, FICH
Hematologist, Ludhiana
Thalassemia - What Exactly Is It?

Thalassemia is a genetically inherited blood disorder in which the body starts producing an abnormal form of hemoglobin. This hemoglobin gets destroyed by natural immunity, and ultimately leads to anemia.

What is the prevalence of Thalassemia?

Beta thalassemia is particularly prevalent among Mediterranean peoples, and due to this geographical association, it is also known as Mediterranean anemia. It is also commonly seen in Greece, Turkey, and Italy. In India, it is more commonly seen in Jain and Gujarati community.

Why does it occur?

Genetic mutation of the gene which is concerned with hemoglobin production is the major cause of it. This mutant gene is generally inherited from the parents. If both the parents transmit mutated gene to the offspring, then the offering will surely develop thalassemia, and if only one parent transmits mutant gene, then the offspring will become only carrier of the disease. He/she will not get the symptoms of the disease or very rarely he may get symptoms but in minor form.

Types of Thalassemia-

The globin part of hemoglobin includes alpha and beta globin. There are two main types of thalassemia, and they are as follows:

  1. Beta thalassemia: Beta thalassemia occurs when there is a defect in the production of beta globin. Beta thalassemia major is caused when there is no functional beta chain production. This is the most severe form. In beta thalassemia intermedia, some amount of hemoglobin A is produced. Beta thalassemia minor is caused when only one of the two beta globin alleles contains a mutation, so beta chain production is not terribly compromised.
  2. Alpha thalassemia: Alpha thalassemia occurs when the body cannot make alpha globin. It has two subtypes and they are as follows:
  3. Hemoglobin H: It develops when a person is missing three alpha globin genes.
  4. Hydrops fetalis: It develops when all the four alpha globin genes are altered or missing.

Symptoms of Thalassemia-

  • Enlarged organs, such as spleen and liver
  • Chest pain, cold hands and feet, shortness of breath, leg cramps, and rapid heartbeat
  • Delayed growth
  • Headaches, dizziness, and faintness
  • Failure to thrive in newborn
  • Pale or jaundiced skin
  • Frequent infections
  • A poor appetite

How to diagnose it?

Diagnosis can be made by following test:

  1. A complete blood count (CBC): To check hemoglobin level and size of red blood cells
  2. A reticulocyte count: To assist the pace at which reticulocytes are produced
  3. Genetic testing: To find out the faulty gene

What is the treatment available for it?

It includes:

  • Blood transfusions and bone marrow transplant
  • Medications, vitamin supplements, and iron supplements
  • Surgery to remove the spleen and gallbladder
  • Chelation therapy to remove excess of iron and other heavy metals

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
