I can't climax during penetration. It is physical or mental? Am I wrong to expect sex when I'm pregnant? I'm not very comfortable performing oral sex. Any advice? I don't really like vibrators. Are there any other toys we should try? The sex is lukewarm. Are we destined to have a horrible sex life? Are men hardwired to cheat?

Depressive symptoms only since a month could be due to adjustment issues or a brief depressive phase. Underlying causes like hormonal disturbances, associated stress and anxiety etc also need to be dealt with. However depression like any other illness is completely treatable. Feel free to consult me online or consult a psychiatrist in your vicinity with her details for an appropriate management.

My friend suffering from weight loss. He smoke min 3 cigarettes a day. Is smoking is reason for weight loss.

My friend suffering from weight loss. He smoke min 3 cigarettes a day. Is smoking is reason for weight loss.
Smoking cessation can lead to weight gain due to increased appetite. it may be causing weight loss though there may be other factors involved. Find out what is the cause of smoking & try to counsel him to quit it not just because its bad for his health but also as it affects people around him (including loved ones) and reduces his years of life. Additionally the amount spent on cigarettes if saved, can be used for much better purposes. If required you may take professional help for your friend.

Masturbation is a very healthy form of sexual outlet, do not feel guilty about it. Nearly 99% of men and more than 60% of women masturbate. It starts from adolescence and goes on in some people even till death. The pleasure (orgasm) from masturbation is said to be unique from sexual intercourse. In men, most of the liquid contains only water and some fructose and hormones. Hence it does not drain your energy. Many equate masturbation/ seminal fluid loss to lack of energy, impotency and so on. Many quacks, religious heads and pseudo healers also propagate the idea that masturbation is a disorder/ and wrongful behavior and instil fear on the mind of innocent men and women (we can see posters in train and bus stand, offering help for this behavior). Consult a psychiatrist, if you have excessive masturbation guilt or compulsive masturbation. Compulsive masturbation is when a person continues with frequent masturbation neglecting his/ her other work like education, job or social obligations. In fact masturbation reduces the sexual tension and helps focus on task at hand better.

I am 26 years old. My hairs are turning into grays since 2010. I tried mahabhrungraj oil for 3 months but it couldn't help. I wants to stop the graying of hairs. So please suggest some remedy. It is possible to turn the grays into black again? If yes then how? Does oil massage for 6 to 8 months make any effect? I heard that Eating black sesame seeds will help to turn greys black again? Is it true? Please help. I never smoke. I am a vegetarian. I don't eat salty or fast food. But from past few years I usually sleeps at late nights. Please help.

Hi there ~ trying the remedies that you suggest might be helpful, however if stress and lack of sleep/sleep cycle difficulties is the cause then book an appointment with me so that I can try to help with medications. I am glad you do not smoke as it can add to early graying and being vegetarian has nothing to do with premature graying. Using over the counter multivitamin multimineral medications may be helpful and I can suggest some as well. I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day! sincerely

Dear user. Don't try hard to forget. The more you try hard to forget something, the more the same thoughts come back vehemently and disturb you. Allow the thoughts to come. And while the thoughts come, you can divert your attention towards something else gently. I suggest counseling and distraction methods to you. Take care.

You probably face a problem in adjusting to you job and expectations out of you whenever you join a new job, that makes you anxious and depressed and vulnerable, especially when you are alone and devoid of help from family and friends. If you still anticipate a similar problem now then it is advisable that you start some form of treatment to deal with your stress and anxiety so that you remain prepared to face your fears efficiently.

It appears that probably you have performance anxiety. If you are feeling stressed, then that means there is some reason but you are not able to understand what is causing this stress. Try to find out the source/trigger of your stress and then work on it. Each person in this world is different. You will not find a person who's ideas and thoughts will mactch with you 100%. But definitely you will have like minded people, you need to search for them. The people with whom you generally interact with may not be sharing your thoughts, ideas, and likes because of their different backgrounds and different life experiences. That is why you are finding it difficult to connect with them. There are many groups online also where you can find like minded people. About your anxiety about talking to people, do you worry about how they will perceive you? are you not confident about your social skills? if it is so, please practice the conversations when you are alone. Have realistic expectations from yourself. You also can take help of a counsellor who will help you in improving your social and interpersonal skills.

I m suffering with mental problem like I can' t sleep well. I can' t stop my mind about thinking. So, what I have to do?

International Academy of Classical Homeopathy, BHMS
Homeopath,
Q passiflor. 15 drops before half hr going to sleep homeopathy is one of the most popular holistic systems of medicine. Homoeopathic medicine is mainly selected on the symptoms you give us. If we are to make a successful prescription, apart from the treatment through the remedies, a lot of counseling and appropriate diet regimen is required. Take care, god bless u, thnks.

Hi, My issue is too much thinking and mostly bad thinking. I think of all worst could happen to me or my family and friends even when I don't want to. My weak point is I try to keep everyone happy and thus I become unhappy I guess. I can't do what I want and that's because I feel that I will hurt someone if I do so. I don't feel energy and fresh everyday and feel like I am very tired. I think everything should be perfect and no one should hurt for any reasons. I want to be happy but thing those happens to me now days I can not stop or not in my control. I feel like if something is not right by someone and if I tell them they will not be happy with me and I don't want that. I see things wrong but can't oppose because they are my loved once. Please help.

Dear Lybrate user, Thank you for contacting us. It sounds like you are troubled by a lot of negative thoughts which you can't seem to get out of your mind. What is good is you realize they are after all just thoughts. It is not an easy thing to change the way you think, but it is possible. Try to observe - without judging - what is going on in your mind. Try to investigate these thoughts. It takes some time and practice to be able to see thoughts for what they are - just thoughts. After a while you might notice they don't have as much power over you anymore. It also sounds like you are taking way too much responsibility for other people's happiness. You can't make anyone else happy. Only they themselves can do that. It is never going to happen that no one will ever get hurt for anything, and it's not your responsibility to make sure they're not. Try to care as much, or more, for yourself as you do for others. Be gentle towards yourself. If you feel like you need to talk to someone, seeing a psychologist in Pune might help. Mindfulness practices such as compassion meditation might also help you to be more grounded and loving towards yourself. I hope this was helpful for you. If you have any further comments or concerns, please feel free to contact us again. All the best!

Loss of interest, decreased concentration and attention, feeling low and disturbed sleep or appetite are some of the signs of depression. Consult a psychiatrist who will assess you in detail. If you are feeling suicidal or hopeless, seek professional help immediately. Try some relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation and deep breathing. Indulge in hobbies. Spend time with people close to you.

This shows that you are not doing your homework properly.Your mind is distracted and you are unable to concentrate on studies.Give atleast 2-3 hours to your daily studies for what ever is taught in the class.People who dont have the habit of daily study and think that they can coverup in the last are the laggards and always find it hard to tacle the situation.So start this habit from now itself and try to find pleasure in studying.You will be known in the future on the basis of your qualification,so work hard,

My answer to the first part of your question is, your daughter has to consult a general physician in order to rule out typhoid fever, malarial infection, jaundice, anemia or even dengue fever, because all the symptoms you mentioned here are few of the symptoms of such conditions. My answer to the second part of your question is, it is very very common in our country, adjustment problems with in-laws and husband's ignorance in such things. Almost every newly married woman has to face these kind of problems. The problem may be your daughter's incompetence to manage that emotionally. There is a chance for her pain behaviors arising from her unconscious mind crying for help to escape from this stressful situation. Ask her to be positive in her approach towards the in-laws, looking into and praising the positive aspects of them. And it is good her husband remains neutral without torturing her to obey his family members like many others do. Her stress tolerance will develop once she gets children and be busy with child-rearing practices and other future plannings with her husband. If she does not complain about her problems with in-laws, her husband may turn positive towards her in course of time. Until then, you can help her as a patient listener to her problems without giving any judgments or negative comments on anybody, which can give her ventilate her bottled-up emotions leading to relaxation to some extent.

I am a male and having problems in depression. I cannot talk much when I am depressed. Everytime I am simply thinking.
alone thinking is a dangerous thing. it increases depressive thoughts. when you have problems it is beter to express with your friends and family members. man is a social animal. we can not do alone. every day we express our internal feelings with others. no one is not intellectual. every one has their own problems. but some body have their capacity to maintain reservedness. solve their own problems with out inform others. but some body like you sensitive personalities. do not have capacity to solve your own problems and feelings. in that case better to take the help of friends and family members. alone thinking no use. it also disturbs your internal status. so better to make friendly relations with others. choose one good friend share all your feelings regularly. dont sit alone in home. better to spend most of the time with busy schedule. better to share others. dont think i am depressed. if you feel you are under depression. if you not feel there is no chance of depression. so be optimistic all the time. be positive. be feel always comfortable. be enjoy the every movement of life. ok all the best.

You are very tuned into what is happening with your body. But you need to tune into how the mind affects your body as well. If you are undergoing through any tension, stress, anxiety or fear, your body can react in a similar way (your body is showing symptoms of" flight" mode which is a natural body reaction to stress). You need to learn to manage stress effectively so that you can be productive and healthy. Please see a counsellor and discuss your problems with her to learn how to deal and cope with whatever is your problem.

Perhaps it is time to shut down this business and start something else that is more promising. Not all businesses last long for various reasons. You do not have to think too much of your wife in all this. No doubt they are all upset with you for your failure but that discomfort should motivate you to push yourself to enter new business. You could talk to a business consultant familiar to your locality and business to instruct you whether you have to pump in more into the current business with some better strategies or change into a fresh venture. It is not right for your wife to show any attitude towards you, unless you are too stubborn. She needs to support you through thick and thin to get you back on your feet.
