I have never done sex. I am involved in masturbation for last 3-4 years only, before that, you have not done. Now a days, I used to lie down on bed facing down, and rubbing my dick with the bed, while watching porn. Is it good for me or not? Should I Stop masturbating now? I'm planning to get married next year, what things should I need to do before marriage to have healthy sex life ahead? I used to discharge quickly while masturbating and nowadays, I'm feeling weakness in my whole body. I'm afraid in talking to girls or ask them out, I'm tall, though my physique is not good, I'm thin. Please help.

A boy is so obssesed and desperate that he always texts me that too from untraceable company numbers. I donno how he pulls out my personal contact numbers. I complained to the police and he was warned twice to stop but his behaviour continues. I have done everything to make him understand i' m not interested in him. At times, I get scared what should I do to stop him before his behaviour gets extreme & tries to harm me in some way?

Dear , ignorance is the only way in this juncture. You complained to the police and he was warned twice. The third time you complain surely he will go to jail. Do it. He will not do anything. He is doing all these because he knows that you fears him or his future activities against you. Don' t worry. Go ahead, of course with the help of adults in your family. Take care.

Use the statement 'I don't' as opposed to 'I can't' A recent study revealed that it is more psychologically empowering to believe and state that YOU DONT do something as opposed to believing and stating that YOU CANT do said thing / consume said meal.

I had smoked marijuana and was diagnosed by anxiety disorder. But it has been 3 years and yet i am unable to travel alone or do rigorous exercises.

Psychologist,
You need to determine the underlying causes for anxiety and develop awareness and skills to become more confident, less fearful and find your strengths which will help you to deal with problems more efficiently. You can go to a counselling psychologist in your city for this. I am from Bangalore and offer Skype sessions besides face to face interaction.

I am having stress related problem, what can I do now. I am suffering since more then 6 months.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
I am having stress related problem, what can I do now. I am suffering since more then 6 months.
Physical symptoms of stress include: •Low energy. •Headaches. •Upset stomach, including diarrhoea, constipation and nausea. •Aches, pains, and tense muscles. •Chest pain and rapid heartbeat. •Insomnia. •Frequent colds and infections. •Loss of sexual desire and/or ability. STRESS CONTROL There are many ways to tame your stress and keep it at bay. Here are 20 tips to tame your stress today, and keep the stress monsters at bay. 1.Perform diaphragmatic or deep breathing exercises. 2.Lie face down on the floor and begin breathing deeply and slowly, with your hands resting under your face. Do this for five minutes. 3.Sit in a reclining chair. Put a hand on your abdomen and a hand on your chest. As you breathe, make sure the hand on your abdomen is moving up and down rather than one on your chest. If the hand on your abdomen is moving you are breathing deeply and slowly. 4.Try progressive muscle relaxation or “deep muscle” relaxation. Progressively tense and relax each muscle group in your body. Learn the difference between muscle tension and relaxation. 5.Meditate. Use visualization or imagery to help you learn to be one with your thoughts. Sit quietly with your eyes closed, imagining the sights, sounds and smells of your favorite place, such as a beach or mountain retreat. 6.Exercise regularly or take up yoga. 7.Consult a psychologist about the use of biofeedback 8.Make time for music, art or other hobbies that help relax and distract you. 9.Learn to identify and monitor stressors. Come up with an organized plan for handling stressful situations. Be careful not to overgeneralize negative reactions to things. 10.Make a list of the important things you need to handle each day. Try to follow the list so you feel organized and on top of things. Put together a coping plan step by step so you have a sense of mastery.

I have been going to my psychiatrist for a couple years now. I am on adderall and kolonopin. I have developed a dependency for adderall. I ran out of my medicine this morning. I have severe withdrawal symptoms from these medicine's. I don't want to go back to my psychiatrist because I feel he isn't helping me anymore. He keeps switching my meds and is to inconsistent. I have an appointment to get treatment at a behavioral health center in 11 days. I don't want to think about the horrible withdrawals that will be starting in a day or two. What should I do until I can get help. The symptoms are almost unbearable. I lay in bed, my anxiety is really bad. My throat feels like it's closing.

Please go to your appointment at behavioral health centre. Most psychiatric medicines are addictive and will create dependency and will cause side effects and will create new diseases. Change your diet and lifestyle change your psychiatrist also you have to give more details like what job you do, stress factors at work, home,sleeep and eating habits. Take a consult for specific advise.

I keep on forgetting things, actually I am in class 12 so I need to memorize more. I am not able to make it please suggest a proper diet, medicine, reason for this.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hi, Take homoeopathic medicine for increasing memory - Anacardium 200/ once daily. Management: -Meditate for at least 15 to 30 minutes each day physically changes your brain, making you less anxious, and more rational and empathetic. -Besides increasing your physical strength and flexibility, yoga changes your brain. Research suggests that in addition to reducing stress, anxiety, and depression, yoga protects the brain from shrinking with age. -Exercise daily as it would can help offset the cognitive decline brought on by aging and increasingly sedentary lifestyles. -Get enough sleep. On average, adults need between 7.5 and 9 hours of sleep each night. When you aren’t getting enough sleep, it affects your brain’s ability to do this, and your memory suffers. -Spend time with people whose company you enjoy, and who make you feel like the best version of you. -laughter can improve short-term memory in older adults. -Cutting down on your use of technology (i. E. Sitting in front of your computer, phone, or tablet) for even 30 minutes can improve your brain health and help you think more deeply.

HI Lybrate user As a parent, at first you should try to divert her attention and spend quality time and give proper love and affection, tell her some real stories of great persons. Indulge her in outdoor games. Provide her some play opportunities that support different kinds of learning styles such as blocks- will develop your child's creative expression and problem solving skills. Ask about what she is learning in school. Offer her some positive reinforcement that will inspire her to keep learning or good behavior. Thanks.

Dear lybrate user. Your symptoms are suggestive of you being in major depression. A person when in major depression has low neurotransmitters like serotonin in brain and thus is very difficult for him to motivate himself. He has a negative attribution style for almost everything around him which is similar to what you are having and yes you seem to have other risk factors of being unmarried and jobless. Lack of confidence and interest are further hurdels to motivate self for social interactions. I would suggest you to consult a psychiatrist and get started on medications as soon as possible. Gradually over time cbt and other life changes may be brought about. With medications you will start feeling better by say 10 to 15 days from the start. I hope you take the step in right directions and get better soon. Take care.

Actually, there are a few aspects to this situation. Firstly, a kind of guilt often operates in conscious/ subconscious mind after this kind of accidents especially where there are significant difference in the damage suffered by the victims. This guilt often gives rise to anxiety which in turn manifests in various bodily symptoms. Next, if you can attain erection during masturbation then no damage presumed to your genital. Your problem to attain erection during intercourse could be addressed during treatment. But if you have problem in having erection even during masturbation then you need to see Urologist first. As such you need to consult Psychiatrist, preferably along with your spouse. You need treatment both in form of medicine and behavioural intervention.

Speech & Language Delay - Spot The Signs!

D.H.L.S, B.A.S.L.P, M.A, B.Ed .SE . ( H.I )
Speech Therapist, Delhi
Speech & Language Delay - Spot The Signs!

There are instances when a kid doesn’t show the usual signs of development compared to their peers. Most parents take it casually thinking that their child will catch up in due course only to find a larger problem associated with it. It is therefore extremely important to discuss speech and language related delays with a medical practitioner to find out whether a child is immature or has a genuine problem which requires medical help. A child can show different signs as per age:

Different age group:

  • Within the first 12 months, a baby should be able to relate to his environment and make babbling and cooing sound. It is often observed that by month 9, a baby is capable of stringing sounds after seeing things. If a baby is intently watching objects, but is unable to make any sound, this may be an early symptom of speech or language related problem.
  • Between the 12th and the 15th month, a baby should be capable of making a wide array of sounds including few commonly used words. Babies should also be able to take few basic instructions and oblige those.
  • Between the age of 18th and 24th months, a baby becomes smart enough to pronounce anywhere in the range of 20 to 50 words. They also start combining words and make simple sentences. They should be capable of identifying common objects and remember their names.
  • By the age of 3, a toddler should be smart enough to combine 4-5 words and form sentences. Kids of this age also become smart enough to take straightforward instructions and perform them comfortably. Any deviation on this should be immediately reported to the Doctor.

What are the warning signs?
If a child between the age of 1-2 is not able to do the following things:

  1. Fails to use gesture
  2. Use more gesture than vocalising by the age of 18 months
  3. Produce no voice by 18th-month
  4. Fails to perform simple instructions

A child between the age of 2-3 needs evaluation if:

  1. Capable of imitating words but isn’t spontaneous in vocalising
  2. Repeats certain words multiple times
  3. The tone of voice is unusual compared to his peers

Possible causes of speech and language delay:

  1. Problems with palate leading to oral impairments
  2. Short frenulum restricting sufficient tongue movement to produce speech
  3. Oral-motor problems leading to speech limitation
  4. Problems related to hearing
  5. Chronic infection of the ear leading to speech delay

What does the pathologist assess?

  1. What can the child speak?
  2. What can the child understand?
  3. Oral-motor status
  4. Clarity of speech

Post the above evaluation a pathologist directs a plan of action. Sometimes speech therapy sessions are recommended in order to improve kids’ skill. For a motor related problem, a doctor can state a plan of action and limit the expectation of parents. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Speech Therapist.

Dear, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Smoking can affect your mouth, throat, lungs, heart, stomach and brain in many ways. Cancer is one among the potential diseases smoking can cause. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. Nicotine chewing gums too help as an alternative for cigarettes. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advice. You can also opt for online deaddiction therapy. Take care.

You both may be having different ideas and fatancies about sexual relationship. It is also possible that your urge is stronger than hers. But to learn more about it talk to a counsellor or a sexologist. Sexual satisfaction is very important for a marriage to sustain. Any dissatisfaction of sexual needs will complicate the relation further. Kindly seek professional help at the earliest.

Avoid tensions and stress. Gaining weight is often more difficult and time consuming than weight loss. Often one ends up with wrong food choices when it comes to weight gain thinking we just have to eat to gain weight. But many times it does not help gain weight and one can succumb to other disorders of the body because of faulty eating. A personalised weight gain diet plan works wonders and helps one gain weight/muscle without gaining unwanted fats. Please feel free to connect with me privately for diet consultation.
