Plz tell whether masturbation delays period. Masturbation once in two weeks delays periods. please reply.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist,
Plz tell whether masturbation delays period. Masturbation once in two weeks delays periods. please reply.
Masturbation doesnot influence menstrual periods. So you can continue to do it. From the information you have given, at 5.6 feet height your weight is 85 kg, this is obesity. And in obese persons menstrual irregularity is common. Visit a near by gynecologist to get examined and evaluated for irregular menses. Most probably gynec will sugegst some tests like blood tests for thyroid disorders and hormone analysis and a sonography to evaluate your pelvic organs. Weight loss has been shown to normalise the internal hormonal balance and menses also regularise. So do go to gym and start diet and exercise together to achieve a good weight for your height. Take help of a dietician to plan your diet.

Low Libido In Females - 7 Associated Causes

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), MD - Alternate Medicine, Certified course in Herbal(Ayurvedic) medicine
Sexologist, Ludhiana
Low Libido In Females - 7 Associated Causes

"Men get naughty at 4-0 forty" but for women, the case may be very-very different. By their thirtieth birthday, many women begin complaining of a lowered libido or lack of interest in sex with their partner. This can be quite frustrating for both partners and can lead to a rift in the relationship. Hence, it becomes essential to pay attention to this condition.

The first step to finding a solution to any problem is to understand the factors that trigger it. Some causes for a lowered libido in women are -

Birth Control and Medication: Birth control essentially manipulates the hormone levels in the body. While this may prevent unwanted pregnancies, a lowered libido is a common side effect of birth control medication. Antidepressants also have similar side effects.

Over Working: Working hard is a good thing but too much of a good thing can have a negative effect on your health. In this case, overworking may lead to stress, anxiety, fatigue and burnout. This can lead to a weakened adrenal gland. The adrenal glands are responsible for the production of testosterone and in this way, working too hard can be the reason for women to not enjoy sex as much as they once used to.

Hormonal Changes: With age, every woman faces hormonal changes. This can result in a lack of lubrication making intercourse uncomfortable. Over time, this can lower libido considerably.
Ways to Enhance a Woman's Libido-
A lowered libido isn't something you have to quietly accept. Here are a few ways to enhance a woman's libido.

Go on a date:
Intercourse is as much an emotional exercise as it is a physical one. Cutting back from other responsibilities, work, children etc and spending time alone with your partner can help you emotionally reconnect with him.

Meditation:
Meditation can help calm the mind and reduce stress. This, in turn, will enhance the production of testosterone in the adrenal glands and thereby enhance libido. Meditation can also help you disconnect from worries and tensions that may be weighing you down.

Medication:
When it comes to a diminished libido, medication may be an effective form of treatment, but it must be tailored to the individual. While estrogen skin creams may be beneficial for some women, others may benefit from testosterone supplements. A few antidepressants can also enhance a woman's libido by increasing dopamine and norepinephrine levels. Viagra can also help enhance a woman's libido especially in cases where the lowered libido was caused by antidepressants.

Hello, Scanty menses can be due to stress in itself during the cycle and also could be indicative of early onset hypothyroidism.

Is it right to tie cloth tightly on stomach after delivery to keep tummy trim it is just a myth, or is there any other solution to keep stomach flat after delivery.

Abdomen muscles are stretched to give space to baby. After delivery the skin and muscles will take some time to regain old shape. Hence a belt /cloth is used post delivery as support. It also supports the back. However it does not reduce any fat. It does not make the stomach flat. To keep your stomach flat..you must eat sensibly before and after delivery and keep your weight in normal levels. In Indian households they tell you to 'Eat for 2 people' and give you food for 5 people... that's why mothers put on excess weight which becomes difficult to remove. So. You got to eat for just 1.25 people(Not 2).. that is enough to take care of baby before and after delivery. Eat nutritious diet. Consult a dietician who will help you. Prevention(of kgs) is better than cure.

I had done intercourse with my girlfriend so many times without using comdoms. When I am done I teke out my penis and then relise my semen. Is it posible that a girl can get pregnent in this situation?

General Physician,
1. For safe sex without getting pregnant condoms advised. 2. The method you follow is ok, but you will not get the full sexual satisfaction. 3. Only with fear the act of sex is done. Sometimes if the timings slips and semen enters the vagina, pregnancy is definite, if she is in her ovulation stage. Marry soon and enjoy freely.

If both her tubes r blocked then your gynaec would help clearing it if possible. If not then other methods of implantation of the embryo by collecting her eggs directly and then merging with your sperm i.e. Test tube baby; can be carried out. We can clear the blocked tubes by medicines and by an intervention.

Soak them in water for 30 mins. Once they absorb the water, a translucent gelatin like coating is formed around them.

First thing you should do once you miss your periods is to take pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy. If negative, repeat the test in weeks time.

How Menopause Affects Your Breasts?

MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology, DGO, MBBS, MCPS
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
How Menopause Affects Your Breasts?

Menopause is a natural change in a female body that occurs after or around the age of 45, when the ability to bear children stops permanently. The fertility diminishes and the menstrual cycle stops. A decrease in hormone production, especially in the levels of estrogen, happens after the onset of menopausal years.

During this time, there are a number of physical changes that take place inside the woman’s body. The noticeable changes happen in the female breasts.

Some visible changes to breasts during menopause

  1. Non-cyclical breast pain is mostly not related to menstrual cycle and slowly stops with time.

  2. Loss of glandular tissues is common and causes shrinkage in size.

  3. With age, the connective tissues also lose elasticity and causes sagging

  4. Breast pain could also be due to fibrocystic breast changes

  5. There could be a chance of developing breast cancer

  6. Density of the glands decreases inside the breasts and fat develops.

It is advisable to get any kind of discomfort examined by the doctor to make sure you are in the safe zone. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is not generally advised as it may create hormonal issues in the long run.

It is also important to follow a healthy diet comprising of protein, calcium , magnesium and other vital nutrients as advised by your doctor. Reduction in smoking and alcohol intake is highly beneficial and cuts down risk of major diseases. It is also necessary to exercise, remain physically active and maintain a healthy body weight during this time.

Regular check-ups, mammograms and self-examination of breasts help to diagnose and detect early signs of breast tumours and cancer and are highly recommended, especially for women who are in the perimenopausal and menopausal years. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.
