Hi friends, I am Dr Hitesh Shah from Mumbai. I am a homoeopath, a wellness consultant and a sexol...

Hi friends, I am Dr Hitesh Shah from Mumbai. I am a homoeopath, a wellness consultant and a sexologist. Our today’s topic in this series is premature ejaculation and its permanent solution with homoeopathy. Well, friends, premature ejaculation is something which affects millions of men, especially young age group and the victim of their suffering is their spouse, their partners. Because men reach his orgasm, men reach his culmination, men experience the whole bliss, early maybe, but who ultimately suffers is the women because they don’t experience their pleasure or orgasm. In fact, women have multiple orgasmic potentials, they can experience multiple orgasm unlike men who when reaches one orgasm, discharges and goes to sleep. But women can reach multiple orgasms, they are more powerful in sex than men. But unfortunately, most men are finding it difficult to take their women even for one orgasm. Why so? It’s because nature has made men reach orgasm fast so that they can deposit semen in a woman and there are higher chances of conceiving and the continuation of species tales place. But as a result, lots of couples are suffering miserably. So let’s find out what is this premature ejaculation and is there any permanent solution to this?

Basically, ejaculation is a physiological counterpart of men reaching orgasm in his psychosexual consciousness. So if a man reaches orgasm faster, early or quickly then he will ejaculate fast before his expectation or before his partner’s orgasm and that is called premature ejaculation.

 Now when would man reach his orgasm fast or early? Orgasm is peak, it’s the destination, it’s the peak of pleasure. You will reach your destination fast if your speed is fast so, if your speed of excitement, sexual excitement is too fast then you will reach your orgasm also very fast. So essentially, premature ejaculation is early orgasmic response due to the fast pace of excitement.

Now, why do some men have a very fast pace of sexual excitement? Now a couple of reasons-

  • From their teenage, their way of masturbating which is too fast they have done masturbation in a very quick manner. So their sexual response pattern develops in their own system. It’s a kind of programming which keeps repeating itself, autonomously. So every time they are in a sexual encounter situation, they respond fast.
  • It’s out of hurry or anxiety. Some men suffer from anxiety of losing erection they are in a hurry that they may not lose the erection when they have got, achieved the erection during foreplay. So once they are in hurry, they hurriedly rush towards orgasm.
  • There is another reason, many men have a hypersensitive glans penis, the head of the penis is too sensitive. So the moment they are inside woman’s vagina, they tend to have erotic bombarding, they are taken to orgasm fast. Also, some men are constitutionally too quick in their sexual response.

Now there is a way out. Now, traditionally, most men tend to take tablets, which are generally psychiatric medicines like dapoxetine, paroxetine, colonel. Now this medicine, what it does is because of their nature they are basically anti-anxiety and anti-depression but their side effect has been found that they block neuromuscular junction and hence they block ejaculation and hence it is used for premature ejaculation. Obviously, they are bound to have a lot of side effects. And the result remains, the benefit remains only for 24 hours. So, this is a solution which gives you temporary benefit with a risk of side effects. As against that, there is a classical solution. If you can manage to control your speed of excitement, if you can work with yourself, then you can even enjoy the whole journey and not just the destination.Toh is ke le aap ka khud pe control develop karna hona, khud he to develop control over your sexual pace of sexual excitement. You need to take certain natural remedies and homeopathy is a fantastic science and with thousands of patients’ treatment we have discovered that it works beautifully without side effects and long-term solution. So you can develop a very good control on your pace of excitement, you can enjoy the journey. You can take your partner to climax and then reach your own climax. Also if the local area is hypersensitive, it needs to be treated and this we integrate with certain ancient techniques and modern techniques and the natural remedies

. Everything together brings about a beautiful transformation in your sexual response patterns and not only you will be happy with your prolonged time and the quality of pleasure but you will also make your partner reach her orgasm maybe even multiple orgasms very soon. So there is a perfect solution to this problem. Don’t feel miserable, don’t lose hope, your confidence will come back. You’re a complete man, the only thing is that your speed is too fast, and you’re not able to control it. And we’ll help you out, don’t worry.

Homeopathy treatment for Erectile Dysfunction <br/><br/>Welcome friends, I m Dr. Hitesh Shah. I a...

Homeopathy treatment for Erectile Dysfunction 

Welcome friends, I’m Dr. Hitesh Shah. I am a homeopath and a wellness consultant, and a sexologist in Mumbai. Today our topic is Erectile Dysfunction and homeopathy.

First let me make you understand What erectile dysfunction is. Basically, erection is due to rush of blood which involves your penile tissue and men get erection in order to have adequate intercourse. So if he cannot achieve a good erection, or if he achieves but cannot sustain a good erection and not able to have satisfactory intercourse, it is labeled as erectile dysfunction.

There are many Reasons when a man starts experiencing erectile dysfunction.

Broadly it is divided into two categories: one, psychological or situational, the other one is medical factors.

Now psychological factors play a very important role. See, if you understand the while Psychophysiology of erection it is an entire circuit from your mind, nervous system, and the blood flow. So I will explain you how sex is basically in your mind. Aap kuch sochte hain, dekhte hain, so five senses sabda, sparsh, roop, ras, gandh, and Kalpana, your imagination. Five senses and imagination triggers sexual desire in your mind. Now this mental excitement, this sexual excitement comes in your nervous system, the brain. Brain mate is in the form of electrical impulses. From there it travels via the sinal cord up to the lower part of the back. From there the messages travel of sexual excitement through the peripheral nerves to the private part of the blood vessels. Blood vessel gets stimulated, it opens up and there is a rush of blood. Man gets erection, woman gets lubrication. So if your entire circuit is proper – mind, nervous system, nerves, and blood vessel and blood flow, erection would be good. So mind mein agar sukoon hai, if you are relaxed and if you have love affection for your partner, if there is a very good passion level, the desire level would be great. So sexual desire messages are in a good quality. And then if your nervous system is in a good health, it will travel in through it very well. If blood vessels are elastic it will open up. If blood flow is good, erection will be good.

So again, if there are problem at any of these levels, there will be problem with the erection. In mind, what can be the problem? Suppose the man suffers with lot of stress, work area stress, financial stress,s family stress, responsibilities, day-to-day struggle, in that case, is mind is filled up with stress. So at the time of sex he is preoccupied with stressful negative vibrations. So the quality of vibration that could get generated is not good enough. Or he may also suffer with performance anxiety because last time he met with some failure, it enters his head, and he is conscious, he is nervous, he is not sure whether he’ll get erection again or not, and he has a fear, fear of losing erection. If I am getting erection will it stay there? Will I be able to perform? Will I be able to satisfy my partner? So all this anxiety envelops his mind. Agar mind mein sex hain toh neeche sex aayega, provided medically you’re also perfect. But if the sex is disrupte, if your sexual excitement get disrupted, you lose excitement in your mind and hence you lose erection, it went down. So these are called broadly psychological or situational erectile dysfunction. The next category is medical erectile dysfunction. Now, major reasons are alcohol, smoking, high blood pressure, diabetes, low testosterone, which is a sex hormone level, thyroid disorders, these are the common, and high cholesterol and triglycerides.

Now let’s understand how it affects your circuit of erectile physiology. The diabetes and alcohol, they affect your nervous system. Alcohol ignites your passion but takes away performance. Toh log alcohol lete hain, they get, you know, uninhibited, sab control chale jate hain, lekin over a period of time, unka performance pe effect aata hin, because alcohol is a central nervous system depressant. That is why jo message transmit hota hai, apko desire toh ho rahi hain mind mein, you get the desire, but the messages do not transfer via the spinal cord and the peripheral nerves. Same thing happens with diabetes. It’s called diabetic neuropathy. So ultimately what happens, we have desire, but there is no erection happening in the organ, because messages do not reach up to the blood vessel.

Now let’s come to blood vessel and blood flow. In a condition of hypertension, and those who are on nicotine, jo gutkha khate hain, supari khate hain, mawa khate hain, or smoking and even drugs for that matter, or hookah, all these affects your blood vessels, and it constricts your blood vessels, the blood flow reduces in every organ of the body. For that matter, even brain, heart, lung, kidney, sex, pancreas, legs, it can lead to paralysis, heart attacks, lung cancer kidney failure, diabetes, blood pressure, erectile dysfunction and gangrene. So nicotine is the worst enemy of your heath and sex life, so is alcohol. So due to nicotine your blood vessel will get constricted, it will lose its elasticity, blood flow will not take place, even if you have desire, even if messages travel via the your nervous system, blood vessel do not open up adequately, so blood flow doesn’t happen, so you get erectile dysfunction. Coming to blood flow itself, blood is generally very thin, it keeps running like water, so wherever there is demand it will go there. If you’re doing mental work it will go to brain, if you eat some food it will go to stomach, if you exercise, the blood will go to your extremities. And when you have sex, blood goes to the pelvic region, and blood gets engorged, or accumulated in the penile tissue, and one gets the erection. But agar blood samjho thick ho jaye, blood density increases, it’s like in water if you put sugar or oil, the water will become thick, and it will not run smoothly.

Same way it happens in high cholesterol or high triglyceride which is high fat in your blood. Or if sugar increases like in diabetes, so if you put sugar in water, how the water becomes thick, so blood also becomes thick. So even if there is desire, messages travel, blood vessel open up, but the speed of blood flow is too slow to give you a good erection, or help you sustain a good erection. Now you must be wondering how to come out of this situation. So what we do as a sexologist we first try to evaluate your entire life, your health, what are the reasons, your habits, your lifestyle, why you are falling prey to this problem of erectile dysfunction. And once we properly evaluate what are the factors in your case, accordingly we help you out. Now there are two ways to help you out. One is a shortcut, instant result, and a lot of patients come to us who have taken medicines which is known as Viagra and all those medicines, but it helps you for 24 hours.

So what is ideal, the second route is the classical way, where you have to deal with the underlying root factors. So if we deal with your stress, if we deal with your performance anxiety, if we deal with the effect of alcohol on your system, effect of nicotine on your system, if your high BP, diabetes, if we deal with all that, and if it also help you with if you have any relationship issue with your wife, of your performance anxiety. If we help you on these levels, or thyroid dysfunction or low testosterone levels, all these can be helped out adequately. So after evaluation we find out the reason and for each reason, we go for a proper treatment to deal with the underlying root cause, with homeopathy. Only homeopathy has this power to deal with these underlying factors. And we integrate this with counseling and lifestyle management.

So I am sure today every man can come out of his erectile dysfunction. Allopathy is a bull, it can help you instantly with Viagra, with pepper or any injection, with a vacuum pump, and there is also something called penile implant surgery available. Again if you want to go for natural solution, long-term solution, homeopathy is the best. No side effects, no dependence. So always live a happy life, always live a healthy lifestyle, and get rid of all the stress in your mind and always exercise well. Certain nutritions, foods are very important. So we give wholesome guidance on all this. And we can help you out to get rid of your erectile dysfunction forever, without any dependence on any medicine, and naturally and without side effects.

I am sure you are motivated to live a very healthy, wealthy and sexy life. You’re always welcome for any question any query, and you can reach to us through Lybrate. Thank you.

When Sex Hurts: Tips To Make Sex Less Painful For A Woman!

When Sex Hurts: Tips To Make Sex Less Painful For A Woman!

Sexual intercourse for humans is not only a reproductive act, but is also considered to be an emotional and pleasurable act. However, statistics report that almost 30% of the women experience pain during intercourse. This not only hampers the pleasure, but is also an unhealthy sign since it is indicative of a problem.

Painful intercourse could be a regular occurrence, or a sporadic one. There could be numerous reasons that cause the discomfort and pain. Though it might be an early manifestation of grave diseases such as endometriosis or fibroids, but more often, it is triggered due to conditions such as vaginal dryness, yeast infection, bacterial vaginiosis, which can be easily treated. It is pertinent to understand that it is not the physical infirmity of the entire female anatomy that causes such pain/ discomfort, but the existence of certain conditions that can be treated by a medical practitioner. 

Certain such causal factors associated with painful intercourse and the efficient ways to deal with them are discussed below:

1. Vaginal dryness- Vaginal dryness is one of the most commonly cited causes for painful intercourse. There are various causal factors of vaginal dryness. These include, but are not limited to, consumption of certain drugs, bathing with hot water, health conditions or even lack of foreplay. Vaginal dryness due to the aforementioned causes is a short-lived condition that can be treated well with the help of a medical practitioner. 

Usage of lubricants that is suitable for you, as advised by a medical practitioner, could go a long way in aiding the ease of sexual intercourse. The lubricants act as an effective substitute, if the body is unable to naturally secrete vaginal fluids to ease intercourse, thereby greatly reducing the pain that is experienced.
2. Improper vaginal expansion- The female anatomy is designed in such a way that it expands normally during intercourse. Proper foreplay enables the woman to get excited, which results in the release of vaginal fluids that aids in sexual intercourse. However, in the event that the female is not excited enough prior to the act, sexual intercourse can become a painful act, since the vagina is unable to expand in the absence of vaginal fluids. In such cases, take things slow and give your body time to comfortably go with the flow.

3. Vaginal itching caused by infection- Vaginal infections can be caused by antibiotics, prior sexual activity that has resulted in contraction of Sexually Transmitted Diseases etc. This results in an itching or burning sensation while having sex. It is essential to rest your body instead of forcing things, and to consult your doctor as soon as possible. The doctor can correctly diagnose the causal factors behind the infection, and prescribe the necessary medicines for it.

However, if your symptoms vary from the common ones mentioned above, or in case you have a different query, it is always advisable to consult the doctor.

7 Effects Of Over Masturbation!

M.A. (Scholar), BHMS

7 Effects Of Over Masturbation!

Self pleasuring is a normal process during the growing up years and later on in life too. It is recommended by doctors to promote overall health. A lot of times, self pleasuring is a good way to relieve the pent up sexual feelings. The issue, however, is when people (both men and women) get addicted to it and start depending on it for pleasure.

It is a pleasurable act, and therefore especially in the early years of life, it can become an addiction. People also tend to use it to beat loneliness, when they are excited sexually, and of course, to beat boredom. Indulging in it more than 3 to 4 times a week can be normal. However, if there is an urge to masturbate multiple times daily, it is time for concern. Continued into the 20s, there are harmful physical and psychological problems as a result of over-masturbation, as noted below:

  1. Anxiety: Masturbation puts people in a very comfortable position and therefore when there is a partner to go with, there are anxiety issues relating to size, stamina, and ways to please the partner. The performance anxiety which is quite common can be very high in over-masturbators. Both males and females with this habit can face sexual exhaustion and recurrent genital infections also.
  2. Chronic fatigue: Masturbation induces the production of the steroid hormone, cortisol. This increases the rate of metabolism and therefore leads to an exhausted and fatigued feeling.
  3. Back pain or discomfort: Over masturbation reduces the production of oxytocin, DHEA, testosterone and DHT. The depletion of these neurochemicals triggers a release of the inflammatory hormone prostaglandin E2, which is one source for lower-back pain.
  4. Groin and/or testicular discomfort and pain: There is a loop between the pituitary-adrenal-testicular glands, which is responsible for production of oxytocin and testosterone production. These have anti-inflammatory properties and over-masturbation tends to reduce this production. This leads to a groin pain which can extend into the testicles and continue chronically.
  5. Penis shrinkage: When started early in life, the amount of growth hormones in the body reduces with over-masturbation. This leads to inadequate amount of hormones for the penis to grow to its full size, leading to a smaller organ.
  6. Premature ejaculation: Again, the reduction in hormones including testosterone and other neurotransmitters like dopamine and serotonin leads to a weak parasympathetic nervous system. The result is a weaker erection, sperm leakage, and premature ejaculation.
  7. Hair loss: The hormone and neurotransmitter reaction also leads in high levels of prolactin and DHEA in the body, leading to hair loss.

As seen from above, over-masturbation does have a lot of side effects and it is better to treat it early on when you realize it is an issue.

5 Ways to Make Sex Last Longer!

M.A. (Scholar), BHMS
Sexologist, Mumbai
5 Ways to Make Sex Last Longer!

How to last long in bed?
Lack of control over ejaculation or ejaculation occurring too early is called as premature ejaculation. Psychological factors act as the major cause. There are two types of premature ejaculation. Lifelong premature ejaculation and acquired premature ejaculation. Lifelong premature ejaculation noted in teenagers who try first sexual contact and involves deeper psychological causes. Acquired premature ejaculation occurs in later stages of life which may involve both physical and psychological cause.

Ways to control ejaculation

  1. Try to reduce anxietyUnderstand that your partner gets more satisfied with extended period of orgasm and your anxiety is going to be a great hindrance for this pleasure. Once you analyse yourself and realize the dissatisfaction and disappointment that your anxiety gives to both you and your partner, the ways to overcome it naturally comes into strike. If not don’t hesitate to seek assistance from sexual health care advisers to overcome the battle.
  2. Avoid too much of sexual thoughts: If your mind gets occupied with too much of sexual thought always try to divert yourself with your favourite sport or activity that you’re much interested. Give a short break of 5 to 10 minutes before you feel to ejaculate.
  3. Change position: Try position like allowing your partner on you and side by side position as this may cause fewer stimuli to your penis and may delay the ejaculation. Avoid rear entry and missionary position as these are very active and may still activate your ejaculation faster.
  4. Make yourself slow: Activity level of the orgasm stage changes with every individual. It is much essential for the male to sense their emotions and the physiological stages of sexual changes that their body undergo. Slowing down during the orgasm stage or a matured control of the orgasm helps a lot for occurrence of premature ejaculation. Make sure you also don’t drop the sexual desire of your partner and engage her emotions with the act of foreplay.
  5. Concentrate much on foreplay: Premature ejaculation may cause depression and dissatisfaction to your partner and even yourself. So it will be much better if you focus much on foreplay and it will be also better if you develop the practice of foreplay in between the orgasm.

4 Facts About Condoms!

M.A. (Scholar), BHMS
Sexologist, Mumbai
4 Facts About Condoms!

Condoms are the best contraceptive measure you take before having sex because unlike other contraceptive measure such as birth control pills, they actually provide almost fool-proof protection against STDs (Sexually Transmitted Diseases). However, condoms need to be handled with care because if precaution isn’t taken while putting on the condom, it can cause tears on the surface. Here are 5 things you should know about condoms:

  1. Size does matter: 'One size fits all' might not be a good approach towards choosing a condom to wear, because thay come in different sizes. You should check the size at the back of the leaflet before buying it because buying a size that isn’t the right fit can result in tears which can put you and your partner at a risk of pregnancy and contracting STDs.
  2. Condoms do not affect the quality of sex: Contrary to popular belief, condoms do not have any effect on the quality of sex or the level of pleasure you derive from the intercourse. 98% people in a research confirmed this fact. So, not wearing a condom because “it doesn’t feel good” isn’t an excuse anymore.
  3. Latex allergies are a thing: Some people are predisposed to allergies caused due to the latex which most condoms are made of. Symptoms of latex allergy include itchiness, dryness and lesions on the foreskin. If these symptoms persist, don’t be embarrassed to rush to the doctor because the allergy can worsen and prove to be dangerous.
  4. The four types of condoms: The most common type of condom is the latex one, but because latex can cause allergies, an alternative material called polyurethane is used to make condoms too. For people who are allergic to both latex and polyurethane, polyisoprene condoms are a good option. The fourth type of condom is the lambskin condom which is made of lamb intestines. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Female Masturbation - The Many Benefits Of It!

Women who masturbate regularly are likely to enjoy better sex lives with their partners and are more self confident in nature. Women who indulge in masturbation enjoy a wealth of physical as well as mental health benefits.

Following are the benefits that you should be aware of:

a) Psychological or mental benefits of female masturbation:

  1. Helps you accept yourself: Accepting your sexuality is very important as it makes you aware of your body and makes you comfortable with it. It strengthens your love for yourself and increases your confidence. Paying attention to your sexual desires and fulfilling them yourselves is pleasurable as well as healthy. Masturbation can help you know your physical needs and relieve stress associated to your personal and professional life.
  2. Improves mood and busts stress: Masturbation helps you get rid of depressed feelings and in turn positively affects your sexual life with your partner. It improves your mood and is considered an effective stress buster without any associated side effects.

b) Physical benefits of female masturbation:

  1. Prevents insomnia: Masturbation can be a natural way to prevent insomnia as there is a subsequent release of hormones and stress involved. During masturbation the hormone called dopamine increases as the process reaches climax. After orgasm, the hormones called oxytocin are released along with endorphins which consequently help you to sleep better.
  2. Prevention of infections: Female masturbation is very important as it prevents cervical infections and also relieves you from infections in the urinary tract. Recent studies suggest that masturbation helps relieve you from pain caused by urinary tract infections. It lubricates the vagina and eliminates harmful bacteria from the cervix.
  3. Better cardiovascular health: Masturbating promotes improvement in cardiovascular health and also effectively lowers the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. It has been observed that women who masturbate regularly are less vulnerable to coronary heart disease and overall have a better immune system.

Low Libido: Why It Happens and How to Treat It?

M.A. (Scholar), BHMS
Sexologist, Mumbai
Low Libido: Why It Happens and How to Treat It?

It is common belief that people are highly interested in sex. However, this is not true. There are a lot of reasons which can reduce this sexual drive, known as libido. The reasons and therefore the causes are slightly different in men and in women. Read on to know some of the most common causes of reduced arousal in men and women and how to deal with it.

Causes of reduced arousal in men:

  1. Physiologically, sex is greatly influenced by the sex hormones and with age, as there is a gradual decline in the amount of these hormones in circulation, the sex drive also takes a dip. This need not be the case though.
  2. Stressed relationships is extremely common and though hormones have a big role to play, the mind is equally if not more important. If the couples are not happy, there is going to be no sex. As plain as that!
  3. Excessive smoking can reduce a person’s sexual arousal and even affect performance.
  4. Prescription medicines, lack of exercise, anxiety and depression are other causes that also reduce sexual desire.

Management measures:

  • Testosterone replacement therapy in males is often used to boost sexual drive.
  • Lifestyle changes including regular exercise, quitting or controlled smoking, stress management, healthy relationships can go a long way in improving sexual performance.
  • If there are medications that are affecting the sexual drive, talk to your doctor and switch to an alternative.
  • Counselling where the partner is also involved also is very important.

Women: The causes for low sexual drive in females is very different from men.

  1. Cultural differences: The cultural background and upbringing contribute in a big way to how responsive a person is. When it comes to sex, we as a country are still not very frank and open, and so there could be a perceived lack of desire. This is of course in the initial stages of a relationship and given some time, things would change.
  2. Relationship issues: Stressed relationships are definitely a big no-no for a physical relationship. Happy relationships definitely invite a lot more intimacy between the couple.
  3. Hormones: Testosterone which is present in both males and females affects sexual drive in women also. This hormone also gradually reduces over age, and causes some loss of libido.
  4. Medical problems: Depression, anxiety, endometriosis, fibroids, thyroid issues also affect a woman’s drive.

In managing this issue in women, psychology takes over a bigger role. Talking to the woman first and if required the partner helps in solving the issues in most women. Medical conditions, if present, should be corrected to address this issue. Hormone replacement and medication substitution also may be helpful if required.

10 Expert Tips For Better Sex

Do you wish to be sexually happy? Well, you just have to follow four simple steps. You have to remember the fact that sexual interaction is not just a matter of physical happiness, but it is also directly linked with mental satisfaction. Therefore, you have got to prepare yourself mentally before you get intimate with your partner in bed. These steps will help you come much closer to your partner so that you can derive the highest sexual pleasure.

1. Exploring your body

If you want to make your partner comfortable at the time of physical intimacy, then you have to get connected with him both mentally and physically. In this case, half-hearted feelings will not do at all. Complete relaxation is needed before sex, and you can also use any vibrator for getting increased sexual drive. Concentrating on foreplay is one of the best strategies in revealing your love and sexual feelings. Foreplay is needed for increasing the sexual excitement to a great extent. Take your time and be spontaneous in order to make the moments more spiced up. Your kinky side should be exposed towards your partner.

2. Proper communication with the partner

Reveal your likes and dislikes to your partner so that the interaction can be made much stronger. You should switch off your phone at the time of private interaction in order to avoid unwanted interruptions. Honest confession about your body changes should be included. Mutually pleasurable acts need to be done on a specific note in order to get the highest pleasure.
