sex ki baat achi hi. lekin koyi karti hai toh gussa as jata hai. words it is not painful. it is not harmful to body. but practically we do it it is very painful. unable to control our anger in your age. initially everybody feel painful. later they will enjoy it. in opinion better to enjoy with words. do not go practically. when you marry then go for safer sex. any work in compulsory situation we do it it has some meaning. for entertainment we do it leads some problems. if not marry it is better to avoid to these type of thoughts.better to enjoy with words of sexual talk. do not participate in practical aspects. one more thing is if you do one time it is not possible to stop yourself. you want some more experiments. so it is better to stop thinking and using this type of thoughts. practically it is lot of painful and guilty feelings, lose of self confidence, lack of interest on other aspects also. so in this age. it is better to concentrate on your studies. if time comes you will know the experience. up to that wait. dont think and dont go practical aspects. dont be alone and dont think too much about sex. be share your personal feelings and problems with your close friends and family members. be sociable all the time and be happy.ok all the best.

What are Piezogenic Pedal Papules?

What are Piezogenic Pedal Papules?

When you run your hands over the soles of your feet, the surface should be smooth to touch. However, sometimes, the surface may not be so smooth. Piezogenic pedal papules are papules on the medial, posterior or lateral aspects of both heels and result from herniation of fat. These papules are usually asymptomatic and can range from a size of 2mm to 10mm. In some cases, they can be a little painful. This is seen commonly in large lesions. They become apparent when the patient stands with his full weight on his feet and disappear or shrink when the weight is removed. Piezogenic papules can also occur on the wrists. This is a fairly common condition that affects women more than men. Piezogenic pedal papules can occur at any age including infancy.

There is no known cause for the herniation of fat that causes this condition. However, there are a few factors that could increase your risk of suffering from this condition. These factors are:

  • Obesity
  • Orthopedic problems
  • Flat feet
  • Collagen disorders such as EDS
  • Jobs which entail standing for long hours
  • Excessive weight bearing

This condition can also affect newborn babies with no predisposition. The diagnosis of this condition is often confused with infantile pedal papules, xanthoma and tophi. Since they are prominently visible only when pressure is applied, it is essential for a doctor to physically examine the patient while he or she is standing. This condition does not affect the health of a person and is largely only a cosmetic issue. Thus treatment is not usually necessary but some of the things you could do to relieve the discomfort are:

  • In cases where Ehlers-Danlos syndrome triggers the condition, patients may be recommended betamethasone and bupivacaine injections. These injections need to be administered repeatedly for complete pain relief.
  • Orthotic soles or custom made inserts for shoes can help relieve the pain and distribute pressure equally.
  • Heel taping
  • Compression stockings
  • Avoid excessive or prolonged weight bearing
  • Avoid standing for extended periods and try not to run too much
  • Rest the feet and keep them elevated to help alleviate the symptoms
  • Lose weight if you are on the heavier side
  • Electro acupuncture

Piezogenic pedal papules are benign and are no reason to worry. If they begin to affect the quality of your life, you could consult a podiatrist.

Uterine Cancer - 5 Tips To Help You Keep It At Bay!

Uterine Cancer - 5 Tips To Help You Keep It At Bay!

Uterine cancer of cancer of the uterus is a fairly common type of cancer. In fact, this is the fourth most common type of cancer to affect women. This type of cancer is usually diagnosed in its early stages and hence can be easily treated. However, did you know that this type of cancer can be prevented? This is primarily because most cases of uterine cancer are caused by an increased amount of estrogen as compared to progestin. Here are a few tips to keep in mind.

  1. Birth control pills: The regular use of birth control pills for at least a year is believed to reduce the risk of uterine cancer by at least 50%. The longer these contraceptives are used for, the more effective they are. The protection provided by them lasts for 15 years after their use has been discontinued.
  2. Reduce weight: Being overweight not only increases the risk of lifestyle diseases such as diabetes and high blood pressure but can also increase a woman’s risk of suffering from uterine cancer. This is because fat cells produce estrogen that further dis-balances the estrogen to progestin ratio. Reducing weight can thus help lower the estrogen levels in the body and prevent cancer. To lose weight, one must keep a strict control over portion sizes, eat nutritious food and exercise regularly.
  3. Use an IUD: Some methods of contraception not only prevent unwanted pregnancy but also reduce the risk of uterine cancer. Many IUDs or Intrauterine Devices contain progestin. This helps balance the estrogen and progestin levels in the body. Additionally, it also reduces the risk of hyperplasia. This is a condition marked by the abnormal thickening of the lining of the uterus. In many cases, this condition is a precursor to uterine cancer.
  4. Question Your Family: Genetics can also influence the risk of developing uterine cancer. For example, people carrying the gene responsible for Lynch Syndrome or hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer have a much higher risk of uterine cancer as compared to others. Thus, if you know of family members who have suffered or are suffering from uterine or colon cancer, it is a good idea to undergo genetic testing.
  5. Broccoli - A super food: Some foods can also help strengthen the immune system and reduce the risk of uterine cancer. Broccoli is one such vegetable. This is known as a super food that can prevent cancer. The best way to eat broccoli is by steaming it. This has the higher amounts of glucosinolate as compared to fried or boiled broccoli. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Oncologist.

Top Ways To Treat Overactive Bladder Post-Pregnancy

DNB (Urology), MS, MBBS

Top Ways To Treat Overactive Bladder Post-Pregnancy

There are certain changes that are noticed in the body post-pregnancy. One such change that might affect you is an overactive bladder. Usually, depending on the amount of liquid that goes into the body, an individual urinates eight to ten times a day. But post-pregnancy this statistic might increase to around ten to twelve times a day. While urinating helps the body to get rid of excessive body wastes, extreme urinating would also get rid of the necessary minerals and liquid that the body requires for its proper functioning. However, overactive bladders are quite common in women who have delivered and can be treated smoothly. Here are some of the top ways in which you can treat your overactive bladder post your pregnancy:

  1. Losing Weight: A woman gains a lot of weight post pregnancy. This weight needs to be reduced through simple exercises and a proper balanced diet. Reduction of the post pregnancy weight helps in controlling the overactive bladder to a certain extent.

  2. Avoiding Alcohol, Spicy and Acidic Food: Alcohol, spicy and acidic food actually creates havoc in the excretory system. Their compounds are such that these enable the body to get rid of water and necessary elements from the body. In fact, the power of urine itself is reduced, making discharging urine with high water content. This would make you more thirsty resulting in over-urinating at times. Similar conditions arise in the body when you consume coffee which contains caffeine and chocolate. Although, having a little bit of chocolate now and then does not really affect the system to quite an extent.

  3. Exercises: Each exercise is carefully tuned to help a particular part of the body. For reducing the over activeness of your bladder, pelvic exercises are the best that you can carry out even for thirty minutes a day. Exercises would help you to remain active, shed the excess weight as well as manage your urination.

  4. Avoid Smoking: Out of the many health hazards that arise out of smoking, one of them is the extreme urge to urinate often after pregnancy. Thus, to avoid over urination it is advised to refrain from smoking for some time.

Thus, these are some of the easiest ways to control the situation. In case you are embarrassed to go out in the public like this, you can always use incontinence pads. However, if the problem persists even after trying out all the said methods, then it would be in your best interest to take expert advice from the doctors.

Dear lybrate user, as far as sex is concerned body and mind act like hardware and software. Ed and pe are mostly software issues. Which means it is more about your mind and your performance anxiety than any actual physical problem. I see two main issues here - first is you are underconfident and second is, probably you are a perfectionist. Have faith in yourself. While having sex don't think about how you will do it, whether your partner will be satisfied or not etc. If you allow yourself to make mistakes then only you will be able to more forward. So instead of thinking about your performance, just enjoy sex. Don't try to give yourself any marks for the performance. Continuous use of any medication is harmful. You can consult a counsellor/sexologist. You need to know more about enjoyable and good enough sex. This will help you to get rid of ed and pe.

Laparoscopy - How it is Beneficial?

MBBS, M.S( Gynaecology)

Laparoscopy - How it is Beneficial?

Diagnostic laparoscopy is a surgical process for examining different kinds of organs present in the abdomen. It is a low-risk and minimally invasive process in which just a small incision is made. This allows the doctor to evaluate the conditions of your abdominal organs without opting for an open surgery. It’s mostly performed when the patient complains of pain in the pelvic region and when other assessing methods have failed to detect the reason behind the pain and discomfort.

How is laparoscopy done?
The laparoscope is a slim and well-lit telescope that allows your doctor to evaluate the conditions of various organs in your body. It can help in determining whether there is any instance of fibroid or endometriosis. It can help in performing a variety of surgeries like removal of ovarian cysts, hysterectomy and tubal ligation. This surgery involves much lesser healing time compared to other elaborate surgeries.

Why should you go for laparoscopy?
Your gynaecologist may recommend you to get a laparoscopy for a treatment or for diagnosis. It is mostly performed due to unexplained pelvic ache, infertility and a history of pelvic infection. Laparoscopy is also performed for the diagnosis of conditions such as uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, endometriosis, pelvic pus or abscess, ectopic pregnancy, painful scar, inflammatory disease in the pelvic region and reproductive cancers.

How to prepare for gynaecological laparoscopy?
Your gynaecologist would ask you to prepare for the laparoscopy test on the basis of the type of surgery. Your doctor would ask you about the medication you take, which would include health supplements and over-the-counter medications and in certain cases you may have to stop certain medications. This process is performed under anaesthesia and you would be able to go home on the same day. The following process depends on the type of process. The diagnosis process is completed faster than the surgical process in which an incision is required to be made. The instrument would be inserted through the incision and then the surgery is executed by inserting the laparoscope tool. Once the process is completed, all the tools are removed from the body and the incision would be closed with stitches and the affected area would be bandaged.

In recent times, the laparoscopic process has advanced to a great extent and robotic surgery is often used for performing the surgical process. This is because it has been proven that robotic hands are steadier than human hands and can perform fine manipulations effortlessly. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist and ask a free question.

A septate uterus is a congenital condition in which a thin membrane called a septum divides the uterus, either partially or completely. While the condition does not affect a woman’s ability to conceive, it can impact a pregnancy’s outcome. There is a higher risk of first- and second-trimester pregnancy loss with septate uterus. There is also an increased risk of preterm labor. So, Yes you need to remove the septa if you are planning for conceiving. Get hysteroscopy done to remove the septa.

There is nothing to worry about, so ask your doctor to give high dose i. E hcg 10000 next time for egg rupture. It may happen sometimes that egg might not rupture, as you have pcos also. Apart from all the medication and treatment start doing regular exercise and take adequate nutritious diet including fruits, vegetable and dairy products.

This happens usually before my menstrual cycle and pain and lumps fade away by the end of the periods. My periods is due in 10 days time. The pain already stared and I feel lots of lumps.

Add salt after cooking

MBBS, AFIH, PGDMLS, MD-HRM, MD-HM
General Physician, Gurgaon
Add salt after cooking

Whenever we cook food, if the salt is added before the starting of cooking, the iodine gets evaporated and one does not get the advantage of 'iodised namak'.

This may lead to less iodine intake which is a basic need for Thyroid Hormones .. like T3 and T4 (Tri -Iodothyronine and Tetra - Iodothyronine) where the name itself suggests that they are ionised compounds.

Thus, if you remember this fact that cooking would evaporate iodine, you would develop a habit of cooking without adding salt and then add salt during the serving of the food. It would control Blood Pressure and Iodine Deficiency both as one would add less salt if he or she is hypertensive.

Kidney Stones - Are They Troubling You?

Kidney Stones - Are They Troubling You?

A kidney stone is like a small rock that forms in the kidney. Stones form when certain chemicals in the body clump together. A stone can either stay in the kidney or travel through the urinary system by passing though the urine and not causing any harm.

What are the symptoms?

Very small stones might pass through the urinary system without causing much pain. Larger stones can block the flow of urine if they get stuck in the ureters or urethra. Kidney stones do not usually cause any symptoms until they start to pass. Some symptoms might include:

  • Extreme pain in your back or side that will not go away

  • Nausea

  • Blood in your urine

  • Fever and chills

Who are at risk ?

Anyone can have a kidney stone, but it may be more likely if you:

  • Are male and are overweight

  • Have had kidney infections

  • Have a family member with kidney stones

  • Have had kidney stones before

  • Eat a lot of animal protein (such as meat and eggs)

  • Do not drink enough liquids

  • Have certain medicines which can cause kidney stones

How are kidney stones treated?

Treatment depends on the location and size of the kidney stone. Drinking plenty of water and taking some medicines can help a small stone to pass more easily. For problem stones, there may be a few options:

  • Lithotripsy uses shock waves to break a large stone into smaller pieces that can pass.

  • Ureteroscopic Stone Removal uses a small tool to get and remove stones stuck in the ureters.

  • Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy uses surgery to remove large stones from the kidneys.

Depending on the location of the kidney stone and many other factors the doctor decides on the most suitable procedure.

How can I prevent kidney stones?

If you have had kidney stones before, you are more likely to have kidney stones again. To help keep stones from forming, try to:

  • Drink 10 to 12 glasses of water each day

  • Eat less salt (sodium), meat and eggs

  • Find out what type of stone you have

  • Ask your doctor for a urine test

  • Talk to your doctor about your medicines and other tests for kidney stones

Do NOT reduce the calcium in your diet without talking to your doctor first! Studies show that limiting calcium in your diet may not stop kidney stones from forming and may harm your bones.
