During evaluation for infertility. Diagnosed to have high ANA level and Anti SA Ab and Anti RO 52 Ab positive.
Hi How old is the patient? Why were these tests done? It is unnecessary for infertility evaluation. These tests are required after a woman has repeated back to back miscarriages, or a foetus death at mid pregnancy. Even in such cases, it might not give the necessary information, and can not be rectified. If she does not have any said issues, ignore the tests, and change the doctor. If she has had miscarriages, then she'll need some blood thinning injection during pregnancy. Please send in personal message for any further queries.

Hello , masturbation does not effect body building, but if it is in excess this may cause these harms to your body :- 1. Masturbation makes you weak, it spends more energy and burns your calorie 2. Masturbation creates nervousness and neurological problems 3.Masturbation is a main cause for erectile dysfunction. 4. Masturbation addicts you even if you taste it for one time.

You will experience a damn tired. 6.Masturbation causes stress and strain in your mind and soul. 7. Masturbation also affects us psychologically; it creates depression after ejaculation and makes one to feel bad on his own.

Penis Health For Frequent Laptop Users

Penis Health For Frequent Laptop Users

Penis Health for Frequent Laptop Users

As its name implies, a laptop is meant to be placed on the lap. But is that actually safe for penis health? Many studies have shown that prolonged use of a laptop so close to the penis area can have a detrimental impact on a man's penis. Here's what every man needs to know.

WiFi Will Not Make You Sterile: A common myth is that the radioactivity from WiFi can render a man sterile. Luckily, there's no truth to that. The radioactivity from WiFi is far too weak to alter your biology, according to the Cancer Research Society of the United Kingdom. The English study debunked a widely distributed but flawed study from 2011 that inaccurately linked WiFi with lower sperm count. Today, doctors do not believe that connection exists.

But Your Laptop's Heat Might: That's not to say that laptops don't cause infertility. A study conducted by Human Reproduction concluded that after an hour of laptop use, the temperature of a man's scrotum rose to 103 degrees from 80. A man's anatomy is designed such that sperm production exists outside the body because the body's natural temperature - 98.6 degrees - is too hot for the process. Raising the scrotum's temperature to 103 degrees, therefore, makes it such that sperm can't be produced.

The rise in temperature, scientifically known as scrotal hyperthermia, not only hampers a man's ability to create sperm, it also makes the remaining sperm less likely to fertilize an egg. The best way to avoid this is to place your laptop on a table while in use; placing a cushion between the lap and computer has been shown ineffective in avoiding this problem.

It Can Give You a Permanent Rash: Prolonged exposure to infrared heat - the process transferring heat from one body to another through electromagnetic radiation - also causes erythema ab igne. Colloquially referred to as "toasted skin syndrome", this condition takes the form of a red rash on the penis and in most cases is permanent. Due to the proliferation of laptops and technology, there's been a noticeable rise in erythema ab igne, according to the Dermatology Online Journal.

And That Rash May Cause Cancer: The even worse news is that erythema ab igne in rare cases has been known to cause cancer, according to the American Osteopathic College of Dermatology. If you have a long-lasting rash caused by this, it's essential to have it consistently monitored and biopsy by a medical professional.

What Can You Do?

The best way to avoid these problems is to concern alternatives to using your laptop directly on your lap. One way is to be sure is to take regular breaks from extended work by standing up and giving a chance for the area to cool down. Many computer stores also sell specifically designed products that reduce the heat transferred to your lap. However, it's important not to use a cushion as a defense. Researchers have found that cushions not only transfer heat, but they can also be flammable.

Any man concerned about his penis health should not only be identifying potential external issues, but also maintaining a routine designed to keep the penis healthy and strong. For many men, this starts with the regular application of a penis health creme (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for the skin). When selecting a penis health crème, be sure to find one rich in vitamins and nutrients. Vitamin e is scientifically proven to be a powerful natural hydrator and shea butter is an efficient and gentle vehicle for its distribution. Vitamin a, a group of unsaturated nutritional organic compounds, is known for its ability to fight harmful bacteria.

Exercises For Lower Back Pain Relief!

Exercises For Lower Back Pain Relief!

Back pain that grips you every moment you stand up is a sign that you need to work on your back and thigh muscles. When you are not paying attention to this warning sign, it can lead to a chronic condition that can prevent you from doing even the daily routine activities.

Performing the right exercises can help you keep back pain at bay, and prevent it turning into a threat to your physical and emotional health.

  1. Partial crunches: This is a core strengthening exercise that helps the lower back and the ab area. People who suffer from spondylitis can find this a great workout to manage pain. To do this, choose a flat surface. Lie on your back with bent knees. Your feet should be flat on the floor. Keep your arms on the chest, crossed. Or you can even place them at the back of your head. Your stomach muscles should be tight and slowly raise the shoulders. Breathe out slowly. You will feel the urge to raise the elbows and neck to ease the movement. But, you shouldn’t try this. Hold for a second, and get back to the floor slowly. Repeat this 8 to 10 times. When you cannot keep ab muscles tight, you will be straining the back muscles and joints again. So, maintain the right posture.
  2. Hamstring stretches: The hamstring muscles at times become inflexible, which leads to the radiating pain from the thighs to the lower back. You need to lie flat and bend your knee. One leg should be unbent. Keep a soft towel and thread it under the ball of your foot of the unbent knee. Slowly straighten the knee and pull back the towel softly. During this, you will feel a gentle stretch in the back of the leg. Stay in the position for 30 seconds. Initially, you will not be able to stay for this long. So you can start with 10 seconds. Do this stretch at least 4 times for each leg.
  3. Press up back extensions: Begin this position by lying down on your stomach. Place your hands underneath your shoulders. Push the hands down. You will feel the shoulders lifting away from the ground. You can also place the elbows on the ground if you feel comfortable. Stay in this position for 30 seconds.
  4. Knee to chest: You can ease your muscles in the thighs and lower back with this exercise. Lie on the back, and your feet should be flat. Now bend the knees. Slowly move one leg to the chest with the knees bent. The other has to be flat on the ground with bent knees. Your lower back should be on the floor. You need to hold for several seconds. Lower the knee. Then repeat with the other leg. Do this 4 times for each leg.

All these exercises can do wonders but give some time to experience the effect and do it regularly. You will feel the changes in due course of time. Do not continue when you encounter severe pain during the workout session. You should also ensure that you stick to the right posture while performing these exercises. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
