3 Ways You Can Prevent STDs (Sexually Transmitted Diseases)

3 Ways You Can Prevent STDs (Sexually Transmitted Diseases)

Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) are infections that you can get from having sex with someone who already has the infection. The causes of STDs are bacteria, parasites, and viruses. These infections often do not cause any symptoms, and can still be passed unknowingly from the infected partner to the other. However, some common symptoms include genital itching, lesions, flu / fever like symptoms and feeling pain / pressure in the lower part of the stomach.

There are many kinds of STDs including Chlamydia, gonorrhea, genital herpes, syphilis and HIV.

The important thing to understand and know is that these STDs can be prevented.

3 ways of preventing STDS are:

1. Precautions before having sex

There are some things you can do to reduce your risk of contracting STDs before having sex. This include:

  • Limiting the number of sexual partners
  • Talking honestly with partners about your sexual history
  • Getting tested, along with your partner, before having sex
  • Getting timely vaccination against HPV and HBV

If you have been diagnosed with an STD you should tell your partner about it and also explicitly ask your partner if they have had an STD.

2. Practice safe sex

Use a latex condom every time you have sex and use a water-based lubricant. If your sex life involves intercourse, anal or vaginal, make up your mind to never have sex without a condom. If you or your partner is at a high risk of STDs, be consistent about barrier use during oral sex as well. Avoid sharing towels or underclothing to reduce the risk of an STD. Check the expiration date of the condom and make sure that it has an air bubble, which shows it has not been punctured. Dispose the condom properly and never reuse it.

3. Don't drink Alcohol or use drugs before having sex

It's impossible to make responsible choices about your sex life under the influence of drugs or alcohol. When you are under the influence of any one of them, you are not in your mind and are likelier to choose a partner you wouldn't have picked otherwise. In that case, you may be at a higher risk of contracting an STD. Also, if you are on birth control pills and you vomit, the pills could lose some effectiveness.

Now my question is, being a member of conservative family and unemployed, can it be possible for me If I provide medicine and after that pregnancy will be dismissed. I mean is it right time for taking medicine, is it safe? Will it work for sure? Pls provide me the solution and medicine name.

Dear user. ABORTIONS can be performed as early as an intra-uterine pregnancy can be identified by ultrasound, which is usually about 3-4 weeks after your Last Menstrual Period (LMP). In the first trimester, two options are available: Aspiration is done by a physician in the clinic or the Abortion Pill which you take at home. Do not take any decisions before consulting your gynecologist. Take care.

Neuro Pysiotherapy Exercises/stretches in Spastic Stages of Stroke/hemiparalysis

Physiotherapist, Noida
Neuro Pysiotherapy Exercises/stretches in Spastic Stages of Stroke/hemiparalysis

TREATMENT IN SPASTIC STAGES: 

In case of spasticity the therapist should try to achieve the following aims:· 

First normalize the tone.

Development of normal functional pattern.

Prevention of contracture and deformity.

Train the patient to be functionally independent.

Achieve highest possible physical security for the patient.           

Spasticity in the muscle can be reduced by the following methods:       

Gentle rhythmic passive movement.        

Sustained gradual stretching either manually or by using splints.Prolonged icing over the spastic muscle bulk for about 15 to 20 min.            

Faradic stimulation to the weak antagonist muscles can reduce the               

Spasticity of the agonist muscle by the principle of reciprocal inhibition.        

Reflex inhibiting postures or patterns.        

Biofeedback: This can be used to relax spastic muscle as well as to activate its antagonist. 

EXERCISES IN SPASTIC STAGE:

EXERCISES IN LYING:

Scapular movement: The patient scapula should be mobilized passively and also the patient should be asked to perform protraction and elevation movement of the scapula.Touching the opposite shoulder: The patient is trained to take his arm from extension, abduction and external rotation position towards his opposite shoulder into flexion , adduction, supination and external rotation.Touching the head: The patient is trained to touch the head by maintaining external rotation and supination. The Therapist maintains the hand in extension of the fingers with the thumb in abducted position and then she moves the hand into abduction and elevation maintaining the elbow in extension. This exercise can be progressed to active the as the patient learns to control the movement.Elbow extension with shoulder in 90 degree of flexion.The patient is then trained to maintain the arm  in space in different directions. This exercise will help the patient in developing good control of the upper limbs and also increase the proximal fixation.

Bridging: 

Bridging should be done by weight bearing on the affected limb only. The therapist maintains the normal limb in flexion and encourages weight bearingt hrough the hemiplegic lower extremities.

Unilateral rotation of the pelvis: 

The patient performs hip-knee flexion of the affected lower limb and then rotated the pelvis to the opposite side. The patient tries to maintain this posture so that the spasticity of the trunk is inhibited. This exercise also help in encouraging forward rotation of the pelvis and correcting pelvic retraction.The patient is encouraged to perform flexion adduction and extension abduction pattern of the lower limb keeping the knee in extension position throughout.

The affected lower limb is kept in abduction at the edge of the plinth such that the knee is in flexion. In this position the patient is encouraged to perform knee extension and flexion without any adduction or flexion movement at the hip.

The patient may be trained to perform dorsiflexion with hip extension and plantar flexion with hip flexion. In case the patient is unable to perform dorsiflexion he may be trained to do with hip-knee flexion and the flexion at the hip and knee gradually reduced.

Dear user. To TEST PREGNANCY AT HOME simply add urine to a small piece of soap, if froth forms, or if the soap bubbles up, the test is positive. Mix ¼ cup of tuna juice and ¼ cup of vinegar in a plastic cup. Now pee in a separate cup and then add your urine to this mixture. After a few minutes, if the color changes to green, then you are pregnant. Take care.

Adam's Apple - Why Women Don't Have It?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician, Alappuzha
Adam's Apple - Why Women Don't Have It?

Contrary to popular belief, women too have Adam’s apple. However, it is not developed enough to be prominently visible. The Adam’s apple is said to get its name from the Biblical event where Adam ate a bite of the forbidden apple in the Garden of Eden, which later got stuck in his throat. However, the development of Adam’s apple has a more scientific reasoning behind it.

The development of Adam’s apple is part of the changes a boy’s body goes through during puberty. The Adam’s apple refers to the protrusion of thyroid cartilage in front of the larynx or the voice box. It sits just above the thyroid gland and is officially known as a laryngeal prominence. The Adam’s apple is most prominently visible when looking at a man’s side profile.

During puberty, testosterone is produced in large amounts. This causes a boy’s larynges to expand thereby, lowering and deepening the male voice. As the larynx gets bigger the angle at which the right and left thyroid cartilage meets each other becomes more acute thereby, accentuating the Adam’s apple. For most men, these cartilage meet at a 90-degree angle making it prominently visible.

A woman’s larynx also grows during puberty, but not as much as men. For this reason, women have a higher pitched voice than men. Hence the angle between the right and left thyroid cartilage covering a woman’s larynx is usually around 120 degrees. Thus, it is usually not visible to the naked eye, but may be felt during a physical examination.

However, some women do have a larger voice box and hence a pronounced Adam’s apple. This does not have any serious health implications and could be because of a number of reasons including genetic factors or hormonal imbalances. In such cases, they may choose to get it surgically removed. This is because the presence of Adam’s apple is seen as a male characteristic and can have an adverse effect on a woman’s self-confidence. In many cases, men may also choose to have the size of their Adam’s apple reduced through surgery.

The Adam’s apple does not have a noticeable purpose. On the other hand, it can be a cause of concern for men trying to keep a secret as it may jump up and down when nervous. For many men, this bobbing of Adam’s apple is a giveaway when they tell a lie.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Infertility: Causes and Treatment

I am Dr. K.D. Nayar. I’m a senior consultant and head of the department at Akanksha IVF center, Mata Chanan Devi Hospital. This center is there since 2002, more than 15 years. Right now we’re doing almost 700 to 800 IVF cycle every year with the success rate of 40 to 45 percent. Basically, infertility is affecting nearly 15 percent of the population that means one in every six couples is infertile and when we look at the causes of infertility 30 percent is reason because is in the wife, 30 percent is in the husband and 30 percent causes are in both the husband and wife and 10 percent are unexplained. Whenever we get a patient with infertility we have to first investigate them and find out what is the cause of infertility.

Generally speaking 5 percent of the patients land up in the IVF cycle. In a IVF cycle, before starting IVF cycle we have to check the husband’s profile, husband’s seminal traces, whether the husband got any problem in ejaculation or erection. He must be able to produce a normal semen sample. Once we have the husband’s profile then we will investigate along with that we investigate the wife and then we start the IVF treatment.
IVF treatment, basically we give injection to the wife, around 10 to 12 days to produce more number of eggs. We monitor her with ultrasound; see how the follicles are growing. Once the eggs are ready we take out this eggs through a very small procedure through vagina only, no cuts. We take out the eggs at the same time we take the husband’s semen, put them together in a dish, fertilize it. All this process is being done in our IVF labs.

If the husband’s semen count or motility is poor then we can catch hold of one sperm individually and inject into egg itself this is called ICSI. Once we have mixed these sperms and eggs, we leave it in the incubator and observe the further process of fertilization. We check next day they become two cell, day two they should become four cell and so on, they’re growing.

Generally speaking, we like to take them to day five when they become blastocyst and then we have the transfer. Embryo transfer is also a very simple procedure, done without anesthesia. It hardly take 3 to 4 minutes. So, that will be the most vital step in the procedure and patient has to be reassured that there is no pain limitation. There is no obligation to the patient, there is no side effect to the patients general health. Once we do embryo transfer there after 15 days we check whether this embryo is implanted or not. That is a brief summary of the ideal procedure IVF or ICSI which we are doing generally in our center.

You can contact me through lybrate. Our whole team is there to help you in your endeavor to achieve pregnancy.
