Dear Doctors, I am 24 years old and my girlfriend is about 22. We are in love for more than 4 years and we never had sex before. She had her last mense. Period on 9 of this month. This time we have sex on 12th June, first we used condom, since we don't know proper way of using it, we did direct sexual contact even this we hardly perfume because we never had before. We are sure 99% safely done, but out off fear I gave her unwanted pill within 32 minute right after sex, i.e. Around at 4 pm on the same day. On 13th we did using condom but fail to do and we stop. Again we had sex today early morning 15th june at 2: 14 am Out of control my sperm enter into her vagina. Then, today morning itself I gave her another unwanted pill at 11: 14 am (after 9 hr of sex) My humble question is. Will she be having high chance of getting pregnant or can that pill control from pregnant. After how many days we can get pregnancy test? By then, if she happen to get pregnant what are the precautions we can take control from it? We are bit early to get marry. Please kindly suggest us the best way and what precautions we can do?
Is condom the best way to avoid unwanted pregnancy? Which condoms are best in the market? Is there any harm to body for using it?
Sodium deficiency or hyponatraemia refers to the low sodium concentration in the body of an individual. As other minerals, Sodium also plays essential roles in the human body. It is required for many of the functions of the body, including blood pressure management, fluid balance and the proper functioning of the nervous system. It may also sometimes lead to neurological impairments which affect walking and attention and could also result in bone fracture. Hyponatremia can be caused due to drinking too much of water, without enough replacement of sodium from the body. However, consuming too much of sodium can increase the volume of blood in the body, resulting in various health problems and can sometimes lead a person to coma.
The symptoms of sodium deficiency or hyponatraemia aren’t usually always specific. They can differ from person to person and depend on how rapid the fall in the sodium concentration of the body is. However, some of the common symptoms that are usually seen in the affected persons are as follows:
- Gastrointestinal distress: One of the symptoms of hyponatraemia includes gastrointestinal distress. It may cause a decrease in the appetite of an individual and also result in nausea and vomiting. However, if a person suffering from sodium deficiency experiences vomiting, then their problem may continue to worsen.
- Cognitive Impairment: Deficiency in sodium level can also result in abnormal mental status. Hyponatremia causes expanding of the tissue cells in the body. However, maximum tissues in the body can handle this change but the brain cannot. It is not capable of compensating for the increased size of the cells and as a result, the brain starts to dysfunction and causes a headache, confusion, lethargy and the problem of fatigue. With the worsening of the conditions, the person can experience hallucinations, decrease in consciousness and may also lead to coma.
- Muscular Problems: Due to the drop in Sodium concentration, a person can experience various muscular problems including spasms or cramps. He/She may also suffer from fatigue. The weakness in the muscles and seizures are some of the additional symptoms of sodium deficiency.
The severity of these symptoms depends on the speed i.e., on how fast the fall in the blood salt level is. A gradual, low-level drop can be tolerated if it lasts for a few days or weeks, but the deficiency of sodium in the body can be fatal if not treated as early as possible. It may even lead to the death of a person.
