Bend Curvature Of Penis!

Bend Curvature Of Penis!

Curvature of the penis (peyronie's disease)
 

In peyronie's disease, inflammation and scar tissue form along the shaft of the penis. No one is certain why this problem occurs. It may be triggered by repeated mild trauma during sexual intercourse.You may feel the inflammation and scar tissue as a painful lump or area of unusual firmness. In many men, the scar tissue causes the penis to bend or shorten. This is because it prevents the penis from expanding normally.Men with peyronie's often have difficulty achieving a firm erection. But it is unclear whether this occurs first or is caused by the scar tissue.Most men with the problem are between the ages of 45 and 60. The disease runs in families.In one-third of men, peyronie's is associated with the formation of scar tissue in other parts of the body. These include the palms of the hands, the soles of the feet and the eardrums.Sometimes, a serious curvature of the penis is seen in boys at or shortly after birth. This is not peyronie's disease. Most of these cases are thought to be caused by abnormal development in the womb. They may be associated with other abnormalities of the penis.

Symptoms

About half of men with peyronie's disease will first notice pain during intercourse. Symptoms may appear suddenly, or may develop slowly over time. Often the penis will feel firm or lumpy at the painful site.Other men with peyronie's will notice a painless curve of the penis that can occur suddenly or get worse over time. The penis may curve up, down or to either side. Severe changes in the shape of the penis may prevent the man from having intercourse.

If the penis has been injured by sudden trauma, most men will be able to recall the event. Often there will be a sensation or sound of a" snap" followed by loss of erection and the appearance of a bruise. Part of the penis will remain painful for a time. But usually the area will heal over time. However, scar tissue may form and cause a new curvature. This problem is different from peyronie's. It rarely results in difficulties with erections or shortening of the penis.

Diagnosis

Your doctor will ask you about your symptoms. He will examine your penis, looking for tender, firm areas of scar tissue. Usually, this is all that is needed to diagnose the problem.
If your doctor needs more information, he or she may order an x-ray to look for calcium deposits in scar tissue. Your doctor may ask you to bring in photographs of your erect penis to better determine the extent of the damage.Men who are considering surgery may be asked to undergo special testing of sexual function. This will help determine the best method of repairing the problem.

Expected duration

A curve in the penis that is present since birth or is caused by scarring from an injury will not go away unless it is corrected with surgery.How long peyronie's disease lasts is difficult to predict. In more than a third of men, there is gradual improvement over 12 to 18 months without any specific treatment. In others, the scarring is permanent or worsens over time. 

Prevention

There is no way to prevent peyronie's disease.However, middle-aged men who engage in more vigorous or frequent intercourse appear more likely to develop peyronie's.

Treatment

There are lots of medicine to cure this problem like silicia, graphitis, calcarea flour, lycopodium etc.

दाद,खाज-खुजली(Fungal Infection) और होमियोपैथी!

दाद,खाज़-खुजली (फंगल इंफेक्शन) में सबसे कारगर होमियोपैथी

वर्तमान समय में दाद,खाज़-खुजली अथवा फंगल इंफेक्शन एक महामारी की तरह पूरे क्षेत्र में फैला हुआ है इस समय इस रोग के रोगियों की सँख्या लगातार बढ़ रही है आइये आप और हम जानने की कोशिश करते है कि आखिर ये समस्या क्या है!

फंगल इंफेक्शन एक प्रकार का कवक है जो हवा,पानी,मिट्टी,पौधों आदि कहीं भी हो सकते है। यह रोगाणुओं की तरह ही होते है जो शरीर के सम्पर्क मे आते ही जीवित हो जाते है तथा हमारी प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली पर हमला कर उसे प्रभावित करतें है,कमजोर प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली वाले व्यक्ति इससे शीघ्र ही रोगग्रस्त हो जाते है। चूंकि यह एक प्रकार का संक्रमण रोग है तो यह एक दूसरे के सम्पर्क मे आने से इसके फैलने की प्रक्रिया और तेज हो जाती है

एक बार स्वस्थ हो जाने के बाद भी इस रोग के संक्रमण का खतरा बना रहता है क्योंकि कवक प्रत्येक मौसम अथवा पर्यावरण मे जीवित रह सकते है इसीलिए यह बार बार संक्रमण करते रहते है।

प्रायः यह देखने को मिलता है के बरसात एवं गर्मी के मौसम मे कवक या फंगस ज्यादा फैलता है और ज्यादा लोगों को प्रभावित करता है । कई परम्परागत औषधियां इसमे ज्यादा असरदार नही होती, परन्तु होमियोपैथी द्वारा इस रोग पर जड़ आसानी से काबू पाया जा सकता है।। 

होमियोपैथी कवक को जड़ से निकालने के साथ साथ हमारी प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली को दुरुस्त करके इस लायक बनाती है के जिससे यह कवक पुनः संक्रमण नही कर पाता।

सबसे पहले इस रोग के लक्षणों को देखकर रोग की पहचान करनी चाहिए.जिससे इस रोग से बचा जा सके। फंगल इंफेक्शन अथवा दाद,खाज़ की पहचान करना बहुत सरल है, अत्यधिक खुजली के साथ लाल रंग के चकत्ते पड़ना,जलन होना,त्वचा पर दरारें पड़ना,बार बार खुजली आना,अत्यधिक खुजाने पर चिपचिपा पानी जैसा पदार्थ निकलना आदि फंगल इंफेक्शन के लक्षण है।कभी कभी यह बार बार होता है अथवा घटता बढ़ता रहता है.। इस तरह की समस्या होने पर तुरंत किसी योग्य डॉक्टर की सलाह लें।

फंगल इंफेक्शन में कुछ सावधानी बरतकर हम इस गम्भीर समस्या से बच सकते है जैसे ठंडी एव नमी भरी जगहों पर शरीर व पैरो को साफ व सुखा रखें।मोज़ों एवं अंदर के कपड़ो को रोज बदलें।बहुत अधिक तंग कपड़े ना पहने।अपने निज समान एवं कपड़ो को किसी से साझा न करें,व खुद भी किसी अन्य के समान जैसे तौलिया,रुमाल आदि का इस्तेमाल ना करें।यदि आपका वजन ज्यादा है तो ढ़ीले कपड़े पहने तथा शरीर को खुश्क रखें। हमेशा नाखून छोटे रखें तथा किसी दूसरे के नेल कटर का इस्तेमाल ना करें। परिजन अथवा मित्र को यह रोग होने पर तुरन्त किसी योग्य डॉक्टर की सलाह लें।

इस रोग मे होमियोपैथी जादू की तरह काम करती है तथा रोग को जड़ से निकाल फेंकने में पूर्णतः सक्षम है तथा दीर्घकालिक परिणाम देती है। होमियोपैथी समस्या को जड़ से निकालने के साथ साथ प्रतिरोधक क्षमता को भी बढ़ाती है जिससे रोग के दोबारा होने के खतरे से बचा जा सकता है। होमियोपैथी मे अन्य दवाओं की भांति साइड इफेक्ट नही होते इसीलिए यह सबसे ज्यादा लोकप्रिय है। होमियोपैथिक दवा लेते समय अत्यधिक सावधानी रखनी चाहिए,कभी भी स्वयं से कोई भी दवा का सेवन नहीं करना चाहिए।इस रोग के होने पर तुरन्त किसी योग्य होमियोपैथिक विशेषज्ञ से मिलना चाहिए।

What Is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

What is Carpal tunnel syndrome? 

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition that causes numbness, tingling and other symptoms in the hand and arm. Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by a compressed nerve in the carpal tunnel, a narrow passageway on the palm side of your wrist.The anatomy of your wrist, health problems and possibly repetitive hand motions can contribute to carpal tunnel syndrome.Proper treatment usually relieves the tingling and numbness and restores wrist and hand function.

What Are The Causes of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

The primary cause of carpal tunnel syndrome is the pressure on the median nerve. It is seen in certain health conditions like:

• Obesity

• Hypothyroidism

• Arthritis

• Diabetes

• High blood pressure

• Fractures

What Are The Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

Most common symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome include an unpleasant tingling sensation, pain and numbness in the area through which the median nerve passes. This includes the thumb, index, middle finger and a part of the ring finger. These symptoms tend to worsen at night. During the day, the symptoms can cause clumsiness, often causing sufferers to drop things and have trouble picking things up. Here are some of the common symptoms:

• The tingling sensation or numbness in the fingers

• A sudden pain in the wrist that goes all the way to the hands

• A weakness of the hand and tendency to drop things

• A burning sensation that can even stay for a prolonged period

• Disturbance in the sleep due to pain at night

People with carpal tunnel say that a flick of the wrist helps in relieving symptoms.


Diagnosis

History of symptoms. Your doctor will review the pattern of your symptoms. For example, because the median nerve doesn't provide sensation to your little finger, symptoms in that finger may indicate a problem other than carpal tunnel syndrome.

Carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms usually occur include while holding a phone or a newspaper, gripping a steering wheel, or waking up during the night.
 
Physical examination. Your doctor will conduct a physical examination. He or she will test the feeling in your fingers and the strength of the muscles in your hand.

Bending the wrist, tapping on the nerve or simply pressing on the nerve can trigger symptoms in many people.

X-ray. Some doctors recommend an X-ray of the affected wrist to exclude other causes of wrist pain, such as arthritis or a fracture.

Electromyogram. This test measures the tiny electrical discharges produced in muscles. During this test, your doctor inserts a thin-needle electrode into specific muscles to evaluate the electrical activity when muscles contract and rest. This test can identify muscle damage and also may rule out other conditions.

Nerve conduction study. In a variation of electromyography, two electrodes are taped to your skin. A small shock is passed through the median nerve to see if electrical impulses are slowed in the carpal tunnel. This test may be used to diagnose your condition and rule out other conditions.


How To Prevent Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

As painful as the condition is, carpal tunnel syndrome is also easy to prevent. 
 
-Correct the posture: Posture: It is important to have a correct posture as it directly affects the wrists and the fingers.

-Paying attention to the hand posture is important to make sure that the activity does not involve overextension of the wrists

-Treat underlying conditions: Conditions like diabetes, arthritis and high blood pressure should not be neglected and treated properly because it can create tension in the median nerves as well.

-Take a break: If your work involves the use of hands and fingers to a great extent, take breaks and gently stretch your hands and wrists.

-Reduce the strain: Use a mouse that is comfortable and does not put a strain on your wrists.

-Watch your form. Avoid bending your wrist all the way up or down. A relaxed middle position is best. Keep your keyboard at elbow height or slightly lower.

PCOS in Women - Factors Causing It!

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a disorder of the endocrine system in women. It has been found that women suffering from PCOS have enlarged ovaries. These bigger ovaries contain fluids called follicles. During an ultrasound examination, these follicles are seen. If you are suffering from irregular or prolonged menstrual periods, acne, obesity and uncontrolled hair growth, you can get yourself tested for PCOS. However, doctors have failed to determine the exact cause of PCOS. This condition can have dangerous consequences and affect the overall health of the patient. If left untreated, it can cause type 2 diabetes or heart diseases.

What happens in PCOS?
Women suffering from this disorder experience a hormonal imbalance in their body. The hormone changes triggers multiple issues in the body. Sometimes, the body produces an excess of sex hormone. Women may develop masculine features due to overproduction of male hormones or androgens. There might be an imbalance in insulin levels, increasing the risk of developing diabetes.

What causes PCOS?
Surprisingly, the exact cause of PCOS is not known. Researchers have not been able to pinpoint the exact cause for developing PCOS. However, some believe that the cause has hereditary links. People with a family history of diabetes are more prone to have PCOD.

Symptoms of PCOS
The symptoms of PCOS are usually mild in nature during the initial stage. In the beginning, only a few symptoms are detectable. These include acne, obesity and extra hair growth on the face, thinning of hair on the scalp and irregular periods. The symptoms often get unnoticed by the patient first.

7 Things You Should Know Before Having Sex!

Sexual Health Clinic
Sexologist, Delhi
7 Things You Should Know Before Having Sex!

Here is a list of things about sex that may have not been taught in your intimacy educational classes:

  1. Losing your virginity is not only restricted to penetration of the vagina with a penis: It can be anal sex, oral sex or sex with sex toys. And they will all count as sex.
  2. Not everyone bleeds the first time: The bleeding is because of the tearing of a tissue present in the vagina called the hymen. The amount one bleeds depends on the presence of that tissue. While some may bleed a lot, others may not bleed at all. In rare cases, a woman can be born without a hymen.
  3. Hymen check is not definitive of virginity: Hymen is a delicate tissue which can break while doing activities such as ballet dancing, horse riding or cycling. Even a sudden fall can tear the hymen. Some women may not be born with a hymen. So this does not prove virginity.
  4. It does not hurt always: Contrary to popular belief, sex does not have to hurt. You may experience a little bit of pain or pressure associated with a burning sensation. If it hurts too much, you must stop and emphasise more on foreplay in order to get lubricated.
  5. Foreplay is a must: Imagine going down a waterslide without water. That is how sex feels without foreplay. Foreplay can really warm things up for you and your partner. It increases arousal and makes it easier for both of you to climax.
  6. Sex is not about orgasms: It is true that most women do not orgasm the very first time they have sex. So your focus should be more on the process than the end result. Concentrate on finding out what you enjoy the most in bed or what gives pleasure to your partner.
  7. Erectile dysfunctions are not only for the older people: They can happen to anyone. Erections can be difficult to cope with; they come with their own moods and ideas. So there is nothing to worry about if you are not able to get it around the first time.
