Whenever she got period . She get pain all the time in her legs or stomach. Is there any medicine. Suggest?
Female dyspareunia refers to painful intercourse. It is estimated that 8 to 21% of women experience this at some point in their lives. Pain during or after intercourse is disturbing and restricts partners need for intimacy. It leaves the partners with an unpleasant experience and may lead to frustrations, anxiety and fear of sex. There is little awareness among couples about dyspareunia and thus a painful experience is sometimes confusing for the other partner and often invites fights and arguments rather than support and understanding.
Women with dyspareunia suffer pain in genitalia or deeper in the pelvis, vulva or vagina. It is more common among women after menopause; however, many women experience pain right from their first sexual attempt or just after initiation while some at deeper penetration.
Causes of Dyspareunia could be medical, psychosocial or both. Medical conditions can be cured but often there are underlying personal and psychological factors which need to be addressed usually by counsellors or sexologists.
Diagnosis of the problem begins with a physical examination of the vulva. Apart from this an internal pelvic examination may also be required. A doctor takes into account the nature, extent and duration of pain in determining possible causes and deciding the mode of treatment. During interaction with the patient, various other psychosocial factors are also revealed that must be addressed for holistic treatment.
Medical conditions that could cause pain during or after intercourse are many including lesions, thin skin, scar tissues or ulcers. Infections like UTI, herpes, yeast infections, Chlamydia, trichomoniasis can also cause pain.
Treatment of infections is through drugs and creams.
- Apart from this, infections of the fallopian tubes or conditions like ovarian cysts, fibroids, tumours or endometriosis could be a reason for deeper and intense pain. In most of the cases, surgery is the option.
- Lack of oestrogen is another major cause for this type of pain. Oestrogen deficiency can cause lack of lubrication making vaginal area dry. This can cause painful friction during intercourse. Along with lubricants, an oestrogen treatment is given.
Apart from medical causes, fears or anxieties associated with sex can sometimes lead to pain. Lack of harmony in relationships can lead to loss of desire for sex leading to vaginal dryness and discomfort. A traumatic sexual experience of the past may also inhibit a partner to be at peace in the act and may invite psychosomatic problems. It is important for the partner to be sensitive and lend a hand of support. Understanding how a partner wishes to be caressed and touched and making efforts towards providing a sexually exciting experience can go a long way in removing partner’s inhibitions/fears and introducing positive sparks in the relationship.

Motor neurone disease (MND) is a kind of neurodegenerative disease quickly starts weakening muscles. The disease, mainly, impacts on the nerve cells (motor neurons) that control the muscles, enabling you to speak, swallow, breathe and move.
Spinal surgery becomes inevitable when back pain cannot be managed with medications and/or exercise. This is a major decision and requires planning for many things before, during, and after the surgery.
Before a spinal surgery- This preparation will help in smooth recovery, especially if you do not have a full-time caretaker.
Discontinue pain killers: Discontinue pain killers at least 10 to 14 days before surgery. These are blood thinners and can prolong bleeding during the surgery.
Prepare for blood loss: Most people experience some blood loss, but not excessive.
Use a toilet seat raiser: Sitting and getting up from the toilet seat may be difficult. The seat raiser is used to increase the height, making this movement easy.
Enable easy access to common items: Before heading for the surgery, keep things which are commonly used within easy reach. This will help reduce movement and avoid searching (especially if someone else is going to be doing it).
Stock it up: Cooking may not be feasible during the initial postop period, and so it is advisable to stock up food items (ready to eats, fruits, soups, etc.) which will come in handy.
Slip-ons: Bending down and tying shoes may not be easy, so slip-ons can be used.
Caregiving: It is always advisable to have someone stay over with you during the initial postop days. They could help with regular household chores, cooking, etc.
Lifestyle changes: Ensure you eat well in the days before surgery, quit smoking, quit/use moderate amounts of alcohol, and exercise as advised by your surgeon.
After Surgery- Post surgery, there will be some pain and limitation of movement. It is important to understand that adherence to post-op instructions will improve the success rate of the surgery. Also, recovery time for spine surgery is slightly longer and affects overall quality of life, so psychological preparation is required.
Postoperative medications: These will be given to control infection and pain in the immediate postop period, and should be taken without fail
Rehab: The surgeon will recommend physical therapy and rehab exercises which need to be followed. Complete recovery may take anywhere between 3 to 12 months. During this time, care should be taken to avoid repeat injury.
Support: Adequate back support should be provided using lumbar support and ergonomic chairs, and the right posture should be maintained. Ensure there is no undue strain on the back muscles.
Weight management: With excess weight, there is too much strain on the lower disks. Therefore, weight should be managed to reduce this strain.
Smoking and alcohol should be completely stopped, as healing can be hampered.
With some preparation, spinal surgery can be sailed through smoothly. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
Although men are understandably proud of their penis and scrotum, many men are not familiar with the inner workings of these body parts, despite the impact that such inner workings can have on their health. For example, even men who have heard of epididymitis may not be sure of exactly what it is or how it might affect their private parts, causing penis pain and other unpleasant symptoms.
What it is?
The Mayo Clinic states that epididymitis "is an inflammation of the coiled tube (epididymis) at the back of the testicle that stores and carries sperm." That tube is coiled very tightly indeed; if it were to be straightened out, it would measure between 6 and 7 meters. The epididymis does more than just store and carry sperm; it also helps them mature. When sperm first enters the epididymis, it is unable to swim forward and induce fertilization in an egg. During the 2 or 3 months that it stays in the epididymis, it acquires these abilities so that when it is released during ejaculation, it is capable of fulfilling its fertilization mission.
When the epididymis becomes inflamed, a man may experience one or more of these common symptoms.
- Swelling. This is the most common symptom. The inflammation causes the epididymis to swell, creating a "lump" in the back of the scrotum. The swelling is usually accompanied by a feeling of warmth in the area and a reddening of the skin, especially in men of lighter skin tones.
- Discomfort. The swelling causes the scrotum to be sensitive to touch; most often this tenderness is on one side of the testicles. There may also be pain in the penis, especially when the man is urinating. In some cases, this pain may also be felt elsewhere in the pelvic area. Sex is also often affected, with sexual activity producing feelings of pain, especially during ejaculation.
- Discharge or bleeding. There may be a discharge from the penis apart from urination or ejaculation, and sometimes, blood may appear in the semen.
- Fever. Sometimes also accompanies the inflammation.
Epididymitis is generally classified as "acute" (temporary) or "chronic" (longer-lasting, usually staying around for six or more weeks or recurring after it seems to have been banished).
There can be numerous causes of epididymitis. Sexually-transmitted infections, such as gonorrhea or chlamydia, are the biggest culprits among men who are sexually active. (Another reason why unprotected sex can be very risky!) But the bacterial infection can come from non-sexually transmitted causes as well.
For example, sometimes a urinary tract infection might infect the epididymis, as can blockage of the bladder or urethra, which forces urine into the epididymis. In rare cases, an infection in the bloodstream, such as that associated with tuberculosis, could make its way to the epididymis. And on rare occasions, some heart medications have created this inflammation in the scrotum.
Men who notice a swelling in the scrotal area should have it checked, especially if it is accompanied by pain, discharge or any of the other symptoms mentioned above. Antibiotics are often required to clear epididymitis up, especially among sexually active men. The doctor may also recommend giving the area a rest for a while; if pain is persistent, using an athletic strap and taking painkillers may be beneficial.
Keeping an eye out for epididymitis is all part of good penis care. So is regularly using a top drawer penis health creme (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). Be sure to find a crème with vitamin D, the acclaimed "miracle vitamin." The body often needs help in getting sufficient vitamin D, and the penis needs its benefits as much as other parts of the body. And the best crème will also include vitamin A, which has anti-bacterial properties that can help reduce unwanted and persistent (and embarrassing) penis odors.
