You will need to get a prescription of antibiotics as there is a possibility of local infection. In the meantime use cansoft-Cl vaginal pessaries locally daily for 6 consecutive nights and see if it makes a difference.

Hello, Ipill usage is not recommended regularly as it can make your cycles irregular and change you bleeding pattern. There is no set time limit for it and different women react differently.

It may happen sometimes due to hormonal disturbances, if your ultra sonography report is normal then don't worry. Sometimes menses gets irregular at this age it may take 15 to 20 days more to appear. Though it is not normal but seen in indian girls at this age. Just check your thyroid hormone level. Mainly tsh level and revert.

There is virtually no chance of conceiving after a lady has undergone menopause (cesation of period for more than a year or so ). Cases have been reported with assisted reproductive technique. But that is not a common thing.

I wanted to know if is it ok to have sex with a man or not I am 31 years male but I am interested getting sex with guys. I am unmarried so wanted to know if getting anal sex is scientifically ok or not.

MBBS, PG Diploma in HIV Medicine
General Physician,
Penetration between two men by sexual means is not acceptable both social and legally. And anatomically it's not good for the health for both involved in the act. Normal anal canal mucosal layer is thin in comparison with vaginal mucosa. More chance of prone to injury and resulting in more risk of transmission of stds. Like hiv, syphills, gonorrhea, hepatitis b etc. I have seen hundreds of the hiv cases who have acquired it through performing anal sex. So consult a physician immediately for permanent solution for your condition.

Hello, people staying in hostel or pg can eat healthy even if the mess food is bad. Stock up on fresh fruits or nuts in your room. These can be eaten at any time and will keep you full. Have a mix of almonds, cashew nuts, dried apricots, walnuts, etc to munch on. You can also stock healthy snacks like chana, roasted papad, dry bhel. Opt for sandwiches. You can either make one as it does not require any cooking. Switch to multigrain/whole wheat bread instead of white one which is made of refined flour. Add vegetables and chutney and very little cheese to make a filling snack. You can mix other raw veggies like cucumber tomatoes with it if you can or simply boil with the skin in tact to get more nutrition.

If the pain is heavy then you can take tablet cyclopam. There is a chance of getting fever and shivering on first day, for which you should take paracetamol. No extra precaution are needed, except for avoiding public places for firs 2 days.

What Happens When You Smoke?

MBBS, DNB - Respiratory Medicine
Pulmonologist, Bangalore
What Happens When You Smoke?

Smoking can cause irreparable damage to your mind and body. Chemicals in the tobacco travel to all parts of the body, leaving no area unaffected. According to available data, smoking causes 30% of all cancer deaths and about 80% deaths from emphysema and bronchitis. In addition to adversely affecting yourself, smoking also has a severe impact on your near and dear ones. According to WHO, about 600,000 people die every year from passive smoking. Out of the deaths that occur due to this, 1/3rd is that of children.

The Indian situation
While 85% of tobacco users worldwide consume it in the form of cigarettes, in India only 13% use it in that form. Additionally, 54% use it in the form of beedis. A study conducted on Indian smokers has revealed that an average of 8.2 cigarettes is smoked by an individual daily.

The study also revealed that the number of cigarettes smoked every year had grown to over 6 trillion. While 1 out of 10 adults dies from tobacco use worldwide, 5% of deaths in women and 20% of deaths in men in India are caused by cigarette and beedi smoking.

What happens when you smoke?
Cigarette smoke is made up of 4000 chemicals that are present either as tiny particles or gases and about 50 are known to lead to cancer, the toxin nicotine being one of them. In addition to nicotine, the chemicals that make up cigarette smoke also include tar and carbon monoxide. Prolonged exposure to these toxins can hamper your body's ability to filter air and clean the lungs. The smoke not only irritates the lungs but also causes excess production of mucus.

It also causes a paralysis of the tiny hair-like structures like cilia that line the airways and are responsible for removing dust and dirt from the organ. Paralysis of these hair-like structures also causes a buildup of mucus and toxic substances, leading to lung congestion. The extra mucus that is produced causes smokers to suffer from the very ubiquitous smoker's cough and chronic bronchitis.

It's also one of the many triggers of asthma, which brings about the narrowing and inflammation of the airways. Long-term exposure to tobacco smoke causes the destruction of the structure of the lung, walls of the airways as well as lung tissue. The result is a condition known as emphysema. Additionally, smoking also leads to cancer of the lung and over 80% lung cancer cases occur due to this habit.

Whatever you are eating at home you have to introduce the baby to all those things slowly over a period of time making sure that you introduce one new thing at a time and start the next one after about two weeks so that the child gets accustomed to it and it is not necessarily to give her only boiled food you can give him normal homemade food initially in smaller quantities and then slowly increasing it also try not yo give her junk food or readymade foods you can wean the child now from cerelac to normal food.

Infertile men more prone to diabetes
Infertile men more prone to diabetes

Men diagnosed with the fertility related issues or infertility are more susceptible to type 2 diabetes according to recently published study.

The study recommends routine visits of such patients for check-up. The rates of infertility among men are rising due to changing lifestyle, dietary habits, stress and other physiological factors.

The scientists have been studying the associated factors for infertility. Now for the first time scientists have studied the effects of infertility on general ailments.

The scientists from stanford university, school of medicine conducted the study which showed that patients diagnosed with infertility have a greater risk of developing other conditions such as ischemic heart disease, type 2 diabetes compared to fertile men.

The scientists conducted retrospective study in which they assessed the medical records of over 1, 15, 000 men filed between 2001 and 2009.

The scientists scrutinized the men's medical visits before and after fertility testing to determine what health complications they developed in the years after fertility evaluations. They compared general health conditions of men with infertility diagnoses to men without the diagnoses and to men who underwent vasectomy.
The results of the study showed that the infertile men had higher rates of most diseases the researchers had shortlisted.

The scientists found that the infertile men had higher rates of diabetes even when the results were adjusted for the obesity. They found similar results for ischemic heart diseases.

The scientists have wished to expand their research to check physiological relationships between these conditions. Meanwhile, scientists have recommended that infertile men should regularly undergo health check-ups in order to prevent of onset of these conditions.

11 common-sense sex rules that can save your life!!!

Love should not motivate you to take anything for granted because the pleasure of sex will be all forgotten if something goes wrong – say an unwanted pregnancy, or worse, a Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD).

Sex is beautiful, but it is as dangerous and risky as it is rewarding.
This is the reason why you must ensure that you give yourself and your partner maximum protection when you decide to get together.

Love should not motivate you to take anything for granted because the pleasure of sex will be all forgotten if something goes wrong – say an unwanted pregnancy, or worse, a Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD).

Here are 11 common-sense tips to assist you in making sex safe and sweet:

Try to use a condom always – as a first rule, always use a condom when in doubt because it is your next surest protection after abstinence. This rule becomes even more important if you have random sex partners.

Keep your genitals clean – a clean genitalia is the first step to safe sex. Leaving dirt around your genitalia is allowing for harmful organisms to proliferate. You will transfer these orgasms during sex.

Urinate after sex – Sex experts have found out that urinating after sex help to prevent Urinary Tract Infections to a large extents by cleaning out the urethra.

Clean sex is the best sex – it is best if you always go for sex clean, and this means taking a shower at least. You cut down the risk very much by being clean. Germs and bacteria on your bodies will be exchanges during sex if you don’t clean up …remember there are STDs that are transmitted skin-to-skin.

Wash your hands before sex – even if for anything you have to go into sex without cleaning up, your hands should at least be washed, especially if there will be fingering involved. Germs and bacteria behind fingernails for example are a major risk…

Don’t insert same fingers into the anus and vagina – you will end up transferring very harmful germs and bacteria if you inset the same finger (sex toy) into the vagina and anus simultaneously. If you must involve both, then use two different toys or use a condom and change it

Use lubricants – penetration is always better when you have a lubricant involved. It makes the woman able to accommodate the penis more and even heightens the sensation for her. The flavoured ones can also make the air a bit more pleasant…

Keep your pubic hair shaved or trim – there is nothing as good as smelling and looking fresh down there. A clean and aired pubic hair is not only inviting but healthy…you stand lesser risk of skin infections when the place is neat…

Avoid sex where the genitalia have open sores – open sores are the easiest ways to transfer STDs and you should be careful how you handle them. Best thing is to avoid Never have oral sex where the genitals or mouth is injured. Injury around those places can be opportunity to transfer STDs so stay off oral sex – including kissing, until it heals.

Treat every infection the day you notice it – it is a gamble that never pays to allow a sexual infection to develop. The best thing is to deal with it the moment you notice anything strange about your genital region…

Be careful what you use as sex toys – these days people get daring when improvising household items as sex toys and they end up hurting themselves. If you look up sex injuries online, you’ll be shocked. So, before you use anything as a sex toy, ensure that it is not sharp, does not have any electric parts and cannot break easily. Also, it must be CLEAN always….
