I am 17 and I love my ex a lot. He took my virginity and dumped me. This picture of intercourse will remain in my mind forever. How do I get him back? I love him more than my life. And I have no scenes of moving on. I do not wanna either. Is there a right way I can talk to him?

Why would you go after someone who has dumped you will he ever be true to you in future? no. Things that are looking v important for you won't even matter after 1 year let time time pass. Don't be so stubborn and ruin your life by going after a loser. You deserve better you are young many will come in you life to form meaningful relation with you. And you will be able to take mature stands then.

I want to die. I self harm. I feel very low and ignored. I can not sleep properly nor do I eat properly.

You are definitely depressed and it is an anger related depression. You need to immediately meet with a counselor and a doctor. Due to your young age, ti is likely that the cause of this anger may be from early childhood and it is good to visit the counselor along with your parents. Whatever the reason your life is too precious and must be protected at all cost. Because of the depression, it will feel very bad for yu to want to end your life but it is very futile and the reason will be very silly too. If you talk to someone even for a brief moment you will save your life during those times. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

This is a critical age for a children, due to hormonal changes in their body they have many curiosities in their mind about themselves and about surroundings. Try to handle him with lots of patience and in friendly manner otherwise these curiosities may lead him to wrong path. Answer his questions. Also make him understand the importance of studies for his age. Encourage him to join some sport activities/classes that will make him active and divert his mind from any unhealthy thinking.

Please do check if you are having continuous fever or not. Also check if you are sleeping under fan/ac - avoid so. Also check your hb% and calcium levels once. Take rhus tox 200 - twice daily for next 3-4 days only. Get back to me for further treatment.

You need to develop stress management and frustration tolerance skills. Accepting the environment as it is is a major pre requisite. You need to take few counseling session online or in person to learn to deal effectively with stress. Also start exercising regularly for 1 hour. Maintain a dairy/journal for yourself write down your thoughts in it.

I work out in the gym and follow a proper diet. I see results and muscle growth. But as soon as I take a break for a few days, my gains are gone. How do I increase my muscle memory?

PGDD, RD, Bachelor of Home Science
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
I work out in the gym and follow a proper diet. I see results and muscle growth. But as soon as I take a break for a ...
Hye, Thanks for the query. Firstly, exercise should not be an ON /OFF affair. Even if you cannot workout in the gym, you need to put in some other workout which you can manage at least thrice a week. Also if your diet is not good, gains will not even as good. If you want to gain some weight, you need to eat more calories than you burn. 1. Eat 5 to 6 meals a day In order to gain weight, you need to start eating 5-6 meals a day. However, it is important that you break these meals into parts, as eating a lot at once may result in indigestion. Also, be sure to include healthy foods in your diet for a healthy weight gain. 2. Weight train at least 3 times a week When you train with weights, your muscles grow. 3. Consume more calories than you burn. Eating calories more than your normal intake may not be easy, but you must do it if you want to stop being skinny. Make sure you don’t do it just by overeating at once, but instead do it gradually over the whole day. 4. Work out your entire body A lot of gym goers usually train only the muscles on their arms, chest and shoulders and this is a grave error. Make sure you workout your entire body for a wholesome weight gain. 5. Load up on protein As informed earlier, you have to consume more calories than your normal intake every day. You can do this by eating foods rich in protein like dairy, meat, eggs, nuts, dry fruits, pulses, sprouts, smoothies, milk shakes etc. 6. Drink your calories It may be tough to meet your calorie requirements by just eating. Drinking milk, lassi, milkshakes or fruit smoothies with little or no sugar can be a great way to load up on the required calories. 7. Try and eat fast (but don’t choke on it) Your body takes some time to give signals of satiety which is why eating fast can help you eat more. 8. Focus on recovery after each workout Stretching exercises, foods rich in carbohydrates can help recover your body significantly. Also, you should aim for 8 hours of sleep as inadequate sleep can cause several problems. 9. Be patient with yourself Hoping to gain weight quickly in a healthy manner is unrealistic. Even if you follow all the advice that is there, you may end up gaining just 1-2 kilos in a month. Every body is different, and just because you are not seeing results in terms of weight gain, you shouldn’t feel discouraged. Living healthy by eating the right diet will make you feel better and more positive about life and increase your strength. 10. Believe in yourself.

Your wife suffering frigidity. It is psychological disorder. It is also called as fear of sex. It needs psychotherapy and cognitive behaviour therapy, sex therapy. If the psychologist is lady then it is helpful to you. Generally this type of problems comes to me. I conduct psychological counselling. Marital counselling both you need. This problem will not solved with gynecologist. It needs sex psychologist. Or expert in psychological counselling. Wait for more time. It needs lot of patience. It is not her problem. She is under psychological frigidity. It is curable. It takes some time to come out of the problem. Or better to consult sexologist also he is also helpful for this problem. Maintain good relation with your wife. Do not argue with her. Maintain friendly atmosphere. One day she will cooperate to you. Age is not criteria. It is common nowadays. Share your personal feelings and problems with your wife. Allow her to share her feelings. Be sociable all the time and be happy all the time. Ok all the best.

Hi
My age is 27
My marriage is near
I have a problem of early discharge, anxiety. what should id o ?
Hi lybrate-user, I can understand your stress, but do not worry few lifestyle changes and exercises can help you overcome this problem. One of them is: kegel's exercise: find your pelvic floor muscles finding the pc muscle is easy. The next time you re urinating, stop or slow your pee mid-flow. The muscles used to stop urinating is your pc muscle. Dont actually tense legs, abdomen or butt cheek muscles, instead focus on lifting your entire pelvic floor upward. Most importantly, continue to breathe through the contraction of your pelvic floor. If you re able to stop or slow your urine in mid-stream, you have just successfully located and contracted your pelvic floor muscles! if you re having a hard time, its the same set of muscles you use to tighten your anus. Now you re ready to kegel. Contract your pelvic floor muscles when you re ready to do kegel exercises for men, the first thing you need to do is contract your pelvic floor muscles. Hold the kegel contraction hold that contraction for as long as you can. Most men cant hold a kegel at first for no more than a couple of seconds. Some may not be able to hold it at all. Thats ok, thats what penis exercises are for to make you stronger! make a note of how long you can hold the kegel. Release the kegel contraction and repeat release the squeeze and repeat, for ten repetitions. Gradually build up your kegels until you can hold them for 10 seconds each. C.

Am smoking person. Am smoking past 10 years. Now I want to stop the smoking habit. Advice me.

M.Phill
Psychologist, Chennai
Start your stop smoking plan with start s- set a quit date: choose a date within the next 2 weeks, so you have enough time to prepare without losing your motivation to quit, if you mainly smoke at work, quit on the weekend, so you have few days to adjust to the change. T- tell family, friends and co-workers that you plan to quit: let your friends and family in on your plan to quit smoking and tell them you need their support and encouragement to stop. Look for a quit buddy who wants to stop smoking as well. You can help each other get through the rough times. A- anticipate and plan for the challenges you'll face while quitting: most people who begin smoking again do so within the first 3 months. You can help yourself make it through by preparing ahead for common challenges, such as nicotine withdrawal and cigratte cravings. R- remove cigrattes & other products from your home, car and work: throw away all of your cigarettes, lighter, ashtrays and matches. Wash your clothes and freshen up anything that smells like smoke. T- talk to your doctor about getting help to quit: your doctor can prescribe medication to help with withdrawal.

Kindly accept my deep-felt condolences at your loss especially at such a prime age. Unexpected death is a shock and may take a long time to grieve, completely. I suggest you talk about your feelings to a confidante or counselor to express your grief, even if you have to do it bit-by-bit until it is completely out of your system. The shock may also induce personal fears of dying and death. I don? t know how your son expired but if you are following a healthy lifestyle, you are in no danger. I hope that you are fit and fine yourself. If not, kindly get into a regimen of exercise, rest, diet and stress-free living. Spiritual pursuits are very soothing and calming to your soul, mind and body. So develop some practice around it and attend important discourses. Yoga and meditation are excellent too. Keep good relations with everybody and live a life of love. If there is someone to be forgiven do so immediately. All the talking you can do is the best medicine for you right now to get over your son's death.

Masturbation is a problem due to the addiction aspect of it but not the infertility part. The infertility is not the concern anyway with both of your addictions, it is the addiction itself that indicates a very vulnerable personality. Does your wife to be and her family know about the marijuana addiction at all? this is also of big concern. You must tell them and hold up this marriage until you have resolved both the addictions. This is very unfair and deceptive to keep them in the dark. Apart from that, there is concern about the driving factors that have led you to this extent of addiction. For the infertility, you must visit a doctor (sexologist) and check out through an infertility test whether that is of serious concern. In all this, you must act in a responsible manner but being os an addictive person you may not take these measures and certainly not in the right spirit. But to do fair justice to this marriage, everything must be above board and in the open. In spite od this, if the family is willing for you to go through the marriage, then that is a different matter. Personally, I do not support you're going through with this under these circumstances.

Dear, You must be able to understand Concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Now I will come to your relationship part. Your relationship is emotional. It is not like married people's love and affection. Therefore you must be more cautious. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with "effective learning" techniques. Take care.

First of all, your penis size when erect is normal. Secondly, there is no proven method or medicine, natural or otherwise, to increase penis size except by surgery, which is risky. I think that this anxiety itself may cause a lot of problems and for this I recommend that you visit a sexologist who will counsel you out of this misery. What you need to explore, in fact, is indulgence in more active foreplay, especially for your wife’s benefit. If she is primed up to experience orgasm along with your penetration, I see a lot of hope in her surely enjoying sex with you, satisfactorily. In fact, there is a time during penetration when her attempt to make her cervix reach out to touch the tip of your penis while in the act of intercourse, is much more gratifying and out-of-this-world experience. Then penis size (if it is larger) actually hampers this possibility. So it is a matter of good timing and right experience that can ultimately lead to her satiation.
