Dear lybrate user, kindly note that if you are unmarried & indulge in sexual relation after an interval of minimum 7 days then you are bound to discharge quickly during intercourse but that does not imply that you have any disease. It occurs due to loss of control of the muscles of penis. Normally it is seen that when a person does sexual intercourse daily he gains control over the muscles of penis & can stay longer during sex. You can try allopathic dejac-t tablet for your problem of premature ejaculation. Take one tablet just one hour before sex. If you cannot find dejac-t in your local allopathic retail shop then search for any medicine containing dapoxetine hydrochloride & tadalafil as its composition. But before taking any medicine kindly notice whether you are having a second erection within 15 minutes of ejaculation for the first time. If you are not experiencing any erection within 15 minutes of ejaculation then you are surely suffering from erectile dysfunction. There will be a change of medication in this case. To get rid of erectile dysfunction you could try ayurvedic gerivit forte capsule. Take one capsule just one hour before sex. Along with medicines you can also try a home therapy to boost your sexual performance. Soak 4-5 dry dates (khurma khajur) in a cup of lukewarm milk before going to bed daily. On waking up next morning eat those soaked dry dates & discard the milk. Repeat the process daily. This therapy often gives effective result within 15 days there are many conventional allopathic sexual pills in market such as adegra, viagra, penegra etc. Refrain yourself from using such pills as those pills contain a steroid called sildenafil. This steroid has a unique temporary effect on erectile problems. Patients using these pills for first time often report that their penis remain strong even after ejaculation. Such effects leads the patients to use sildenafil for prolonged course of time as they often feel that a full erection is possible only after taking sildenafil. Moreover it is very low cost & easy availability of this steroid has made it quite common as sexual medicine. But the bitter truth is prolonged use of sildenafil will permanently disable the normal physiological process behind erection & will render your body to become solely dependent upon sildenafil for erection. As a result you won't feel any slightest normal erection without taking sildenafil. This is an irreversible condition & it cannot be treated by any means. Once you attain this condition you become a life-time customer of that steroid sildenafil because you have to take sildenafil in order to satisfy your partner. As prevention is always better than cure I would advise you to check the composition of any sexual pills before buying. Discard any sexual pills which contains sildenafil in its composition. There are other compositions like tadalafil, citadel etc which gives unique result than sildenafil. If you are suffering from premature ejaculation then along with medicine & home therapy you can try the kegel's exercise. You have to do this exercise once daily during the first time of urination after waking up from sleep at morning. Kindly note the following steps to perform the kegel's exercise:- 1) start urinating until you feel that you have voided almost half amount of urine from bladder. 2) when you feel you have voided almost half of the urine try to stop the flow of urine by squeezing the internal muscles of penis. 3) you should not use your hands to stop the flow. Your hands should be resting on your waist. You have to stop the urine only by your self control over the internal muscles of penis. 4) try to stop the urine flow by the control of internal muscles up to 20 seconds. On the very first day you won't be able to hold the urine for more than 3 seconds. However, practicing the exercise daily will improve your control over the muscles of penis & after 15-20 days you will be able to stop the urine for 20 seconds by the control of your pelvic muscles. This control of pelvic muscles will help you to get rid of premature ejaculation while you are performing sexual intercourse 5) after 20 seconds is over, void the rest of the urine. Do not stop the flow of urine for more than 30 seconds. N. P.- kegel's exercise is effective only in the case of premature ejaculation & it is not helpful for patients suffering from erectile dysfunction.

Kindly note that this medication may not be sufficient enough to take care of your problem.

Osteoporosis (weak bone disease) was non-existent a few decades ago. Presently it has reached epidemic proportions. Since the time of its discovery it was claimed to affect majority of the female population after menopause and the old age people.

Of late, children between 5-15 years, exhibit the alarming signs of this disease. As a result, even minor falls lead to fractures in kids. Moreover many kids complain of debilitating knee pain, back pain, frequent neck sprains and early fatigue during play.

The undesirable and deviant food habits and lifestyle changes over the past few decades have lead to this dreadful disease.

Ways to prevent and cure osteoporosis:

 1. Stop using refined sugar (white sugar): when cane sugar is refined it loses all its vital nutrients and retains just empty calories. Many toxic chemicals are used in the process of refining, which makes it more dangerous for regular consumption. It depletes calcium, magnesium and copper from the bone which renders the bone weak and brittle (easily breakable). It is also wise to avoid all products which contain this white sugar such as chocolates, sweets, bakery products like bread, cake, etc.

Products like noodles, pasta, pizza, packed chips which contain artificial sweeteners like saccharin and flavor enhancers like high fructose corn syrup (hfcs) and msg (mono- sodium glutamate) should be strictly avoided.

2. Stop caffeine intake: every cup of coffee robs your body of 150 mg of calcium. Stop consuming alcohol and soft drinks: the abundant phosphates and very high sugar content in the carbonated drinks sucks out the calcium from the bones. Alcohol creates a highly acidic environment in our body and hence depletes calcium reserves from our bones.

3. Cut down refined starch (white rice): polishing rice strips of all the nutrients and provides only empty calories and hence depletes calcium and vitamin b complex from our body.

4. Get sunlight everyday: recent researches confirm an ancient truth, that not only plants need sunlight for their survival; even humans should get exposed to sunlight regularly to lead a healthy life. A minimum of 20 minutes exposure to morning sunlight is mandatory everyday for our body metabolism to function normally. In addition, sunlight provides the majority of the vitamin d, which is recently found to be lacking in the modern population.

5. Movement is life: we are born to move and breathe, which is quite lacking in present days due to sedentary (without movement) mode of occupation and lifestyle. Free active exercises involving the large muscles of our arms and legs should be done without weights and any resistance for 20 minutes a day. The muscles exert a pulling force on bones during contraction, which stimulates new bone formation and thereby strengthens bones. Weight bearing movements like walking, stair climbing, cycling should be done with protective braces, splints and walking aids in advanced cases of osteoporosis

6. Be alkaline: all our body functions are designed to function the best in an alkaline medium, so do our bones and their calcium metabolism. Hence we should avoid food which turns our body acidic (non –vegetarian food is highly acidic), and we should concentrate and choose alkaline food (raw vegetable salads, fruits salads, nuts, wheatgrass juice, bilva juice, amla juice, lemon juice, ashgourd juice, banana pith juice, unpolished cereals, pulses with husk and so on.

7. Achieve relaxation: specific time should be allotted everyday for relaxation, during which various relaxation procedures like deep breathing in fresh air, listening to soothing classical music, walking with barefoot (if possible on grass lawns or sand in seashores, foot massage, whole body massage, progressive muscle relaxation procedures, gentle low- grade aerobic workouts in open air. Relaxation reduces the cortisol levels and in turn prevents calcium loss.

8. Be constantly aware of your posture: a faulty posture (excessive bent position of neck, back, one- sided sitting, standing, slouched sitting in sofas, cushioned chairs) causes unequal shearing load on one part of the bone resulting in early degeneration and weakening. Children should not be allowed to carry heavy school bags. People should acquire knowledge about ideal, correct posture from physical therapy professionals and should perform regular postural exercises.

Solutions That Can Save a Relationship.


All relationship problems stem from poor communication, You can't communicate while you're checking your BlackBerry, watching TV, or flipping through the sports section"


Even partners who love each other can be a mismatch, sexually,lack of sexual self-awareness and education worsens these problems. But having sex is one of the last things you should give up. "Sex" "brings us closer together, releases hormones that help our bodies both physically and mentally, and keeps the chemistry of a healthy couple healthy"

Problem-solving strategies:

Plan, plan, plan.


Money problems can start even before the wedding vows are exchanged. They can stem, for example, from the expenses of courtship or from the high cost of a wedding.

Problem-solving strategies:

Be honest about your current financial situation. If things have gone south, continuing the same lifestyle is unrealistic.Don't approach the subject in the heat of battle. Instead, set aside a time that is convenient and non-threatening for both of you.Acknowledge that one partner may be a saver and one a spender, understand there are benefits to both, and agree to learn from each other's tendencies.Don't hide income or debt. Bring financial documents, including a recent credit report, pay stubs, bank statements,policies, debts, and investments to the table.Don't blame.Construct a joint budget that includes savings.Decide which person will be responsible for paying the monthly bills.Allow each person to have independence by setting aside money to be spent at his or her discretion.Decide upon short-term and long-term goals. It's OK to have individual goals, but you should have family goals, too.Talk about caring for your parents as they age and how to appropriately plan for their financial needs if needed.
Struggles Over Home Chores

Most partners work outside the home and often at more than one job. So it's important to fairly divide the labor at home.

Problem-solving strategies:

Be organized and clear about your respective jobs in the home, "Write all the jobs down and agree on who does what" Be fair so no resentment builds.Be open to other solutions, she says If you both hate housework, maybe you can spring for a cleaning service. If one of you likes housework, the other partner can do the laundry and the yard. You can be creative and take preferences into account -- as long as it feels fair to both of you.

Not Making Your Relationship a Priority

If you want to keep your love life going, making your relationship a focal point should not end when you say "I do" "Relationships lose their luster. So make yours a priority.

Problem-solving strategies:

Do the things you used to do when you first met. Show appreciation, compliment each other, contact each other through the day, and show interest in each other. Schedule time together on the calendar, Say "thank you"appreciate" It lets your partner know that they matter.


Occasional conflict is a part of life. . The same lousy situations keep repeating day after day -- it's time to break free of this toxic routine. When you make the effort, you can lessen the anger and take a calm look at underlying issues.

Problem-solving strategies:

You and your partner can learn to argue in a more civil, helpful manner . Make these strategies part of who you are in this relationship.

Realize you are not a victim. It is your choice whether you react and how you react.Be honest with yourself. When you're in the midst of an argument, are your comments geared toward resolving the conflict, or are you looking for payback? If your comments are blaming and hurtful, it's best to take a deep breath and change your strategy.Change it up. If you continue to respond in the way that's brought you pain and unhappiness in the past, you can't expect a different result this time. Just one little shift can make a big difference. If you usually jump right in to defend yourself before your partner is finished speaking, hold off for a moments. You'll be surprised at how such a small shift in tempo can change the whole tone of an argument.Give a little; get a lot. Apologize when you're wrong. Sure it's tough, but just try it and watch something wonderful happen.

"You can't control anyone else's behavior. "The only one in your charge is you"


Trust is a key part of a relationship. Do you see certain things that cause you not to trust your partner? Or do you have unresolved issues that prevent you from trusting others?

Problem-solving strategies:
Be consistent.Be on time.Do what you say yent.Be sensitive to the other's feelings. You can still disagree, but don't discount how your partner is feeling.Call when you say you will.Call to say you'll be home late.Carry your fair share of the workload.Don't overreact when things go wrong.Never say things you can't take back.Don't dig up old wounds.Respect your partner's boundaries.Don?t be jealous.Be a good listener.

Even though there are always going to be problems in a relationship you both can do things to minimize marriage problems, if not avoid them altogether.

First, be realistic. Thinking your mate will meet all your needs -- and will be able to figure them out without your asking -- is a Hollywood fantasy. "Ask for what you need directly"

Next, use humor -- learn to let things go and enjoy one another more.

Finally, be willing to work on your relationship and to truly look at what needs to be done. Don't think that things would be better with someone else. Unless you address problems, the same lack of skills that get in the way now will still be there and still cause problems no matter what relationship you're in.

Good Luck
