Dear lybrate-user, unless you do a pregnancy test, it's very difficult to tell what may be the cause for your problem. I would advice you to do a pregnancy test 15 days after your missed period. As for getting pregnant, if you do not have any functional or anatomical defect which can be ruled out by ultrasonography and hormone analysis, you need not worry as you are young. Take care.

Do You Regret Your Action Or Inaction? Learn To Play At The Brink

MBBS, MRCPsych (UK)
Psychiatrist, Visakhapatnam
Do You Regret Your Action Or Inaction? Learn To Play At The Brink

Do you regret your Action or Inaction? Let’s learn the art of playing at the brink

Regretting one’s own action or inaction can not only be distressing in the short term but a recurring regret can potentially lead to mental illness such as Depression.  While there is enough literature available about how we can handle regret over past experiences, in this article we shall look at whether it is possible to develop the ability to work positively to make right choices and thus reduce the chances of regretting our actions.

Let’s start looking at certain examples. How many of us prefer to sit in a car driven too cautiously or dangerously? Surely, not in both the cars as one leads to frustration and another to fear. The person who drives too slow all the time and keeps missing his appointments is likely to have regret and the guy who is too rash and ends up in an accident would regret too. An efficient driver has the skill, patience, confidence and the presence of mind to drive well. By doing so he reduces the chances of making consequential errors in life of being too cautious or being too rash. Similarly, in business, how often do we hear of someone who risked too much money to invest and lost it all only to regret or someone who played too safe on stocks and regretted having missed the chance to buy stocks which have skyrocketed. Surely these regrets hurt the person considerably.  

We shall now imagine a football field. I really find it very fascinating watching international football where the players often display a predictable and time tested strategy to enhance the chances of scoring goals. They often play the ball at the edge of the field to either create a corner or a sharp angle to shoot towards the goal, just as David Beckham would bend the ball. A novice may tend to play it too safe within the field and hesitate to play it at the edge for fear of losing the ball outside the line. However with some sincere practice he would have developed the skill and confidence to literally play the ball at the brink and create amazing opportunities to score goals. I bet this player would surely be enjoying it the most and perhaps not regretting as he is no more too cautious or reckless. If we think of it, he carefully cultivated this apparently risk prone skill while still playing within the defined limits of safe zone.

So why is it relevant? It is so as in my several years of psychiatric practice in varied healthcare settings such as the UK and Singapore, having treated several patients, with either Acute Stress Reaction, Adjustment Disorder or Major Depression, one factor that tends to present often is Regret, for having acted or not acted the right way. Furthermore, recurring regret can lead to depressed mood, loss of confidence and self-esteem, and perhaps more importantly a sense of failure. The good news is that experienced mental health practitioners such as psychiatrists can effectively treat these mental health conditions with medications and appropriate counselling and psychotherapeutic approaches.

I would advocate that one should develop the ability to gradually train oneself to masterly balance risk and caution, thereby enhancing the chances of measured success in their endeavors and minimize the chances of regret. To cite an example, a person may do the necessary calculations to know the safe limit to which he can stretch himself to take manageable repayable loans and learn to never exceed that limit, unless personal circumstances have become more favorable.  

To follow this strategy, naturally one has to sincerely do all the homework looking at:

  1. One’s own personal strengths and weaknesses
  2. Study the situation well
  3. Form judgment
  4. Make a clear decision, and, most importantly
  5. Learn to stick to the decision and see it through.

 

These can be done as a self-driven exercise or with the help of a therapist. Once the homework is done, the person should learn to stick to the rules of the game, and be consistent and confident in that approach. He may see failures at times but is more likely to succeed in the long run. Importantly, the biggest psychological benefit is that he stays well mentally, as he has learned to be emotionally balanced. Such a person is more likely to back himself or herself in testing times and be proud that he or she tried to their best of ability by being sensibly adventurous. A more advanced practitioner of this method is one who learns to detach himself from the results of these well-made efforts. In the Bhagavad Gita such person is called a Sthitaprajna!

Hello, I am facing excessive hair loss for last 3-4 months. I was diagnosed with pcod by a gynecologist who did sonography by herself in her clinic. She said that in both ovary pcod has developed. But after that I went to sexologist and she said that pcod is in only one (left) ovary with 11-12 follicles. Then I went to endocrinologist, who said that at this age (36 yr) pcod is not a big problem as my all blood reports came normal (I.e.hormonal, thyroid and all other reports are within normal range) and periods are very regular i.e. Exactly 30 days cycle. With this she said that hormonal therapy should not be given after 35 years and suggested me follihair and evacuate. Even I am totally not interested in taking hormonal therapy, as my mother had stroke and is paralyzed for last 7 years, but even after taking follihair and evacure for 1 1/2 months, hair fall is there. I am so worried, losing hair at high speed. I'll highly appreciate if you could help me. Thx a lot.

In general, you lose about 50-100 strands of hair each day, but the loss is not visible as new hair grow in their place. However, if you lose more than a 100 strands in a day and more than 200 strands on the day you shampoo, you may be suffering from what is known as excessive hair fall. Certain factors or reasons may cause you to lose hair at an alarming rate, which are, 1. Thyroid problems Your thyroid is responsible for your body’s overall functioning. The hormones (primarily T4 and T3), which it produces help in regulating metabolic activities. Problems with your thyroid gland can cause your hormone levels to rise or fall to unhealthy levels, which can result in hair fall. You can improve the functioning of your thyroid gland through a diet rich in calcium, iodine, magnesium, protein and Vitamins A, B and C. 2. Scalp infections-Infections of the scalp can also be one of the factors that may cause your hair to fall at an alarming rate. Of the different scalp infections, the ringworm scalp infection is the most common. Although this fungal infection can occur in any part of your body, when it develops on your scalp, you end up losing clumps of hair. Alongside the use of anti-fungal medications, even anti-fungal shampoos and creams can provide you with respite from the problem. 3. Poor diet, Gorging on unhealthy foods or going on a crash diet can result in the lack of essential nutrients in your body, which are required to maintain healthy hair. Furthermore, since hair is made of protein, having a balanced diet consisting of proteins and vitamin- rich foods is a must. 4. Stress gives rise to certain conditions such as alopecia areata, telogen effluvium (hair loss caused post-pregnancy or surgery) and trichotillomania (an impulsive need to pull your hair out), which can cause you to lose significant amount of hair. To avert a hair loss crisis caused by stress, make it a point to do some simple stress-reducing exercises, such as meditation or breathing exercises. 5. Using hair styling products like hair colours and straighteners can cause you to experience hair fall problems. Your hair not only becomes dull and dry due to their use, but also becomes weak and brittle, leading to a gradual loss of hair. Regular oiling and use of homemade hair masks are some of the ways you can try to counter the negative effects of these hair styling products. 6. The drugs that are used in the treatment of cancer not only destroy the fast-growing cancer cells, but also the healthy blood cells in your body. For this reason, consuming foods that possess cancer-fighting properties (like oatmeal, tomato, almonds, garlic etc) is a sure-shot way of fighting the disease as well as averting any side-effects that may arise because of the treatment. 7. Alopecia areata. Lastly, hair fall can also be caused by alopecia areata, which is a kind of hair loss that takes place when your body’s immune system erroneously attacks your hair follicles, and prevents growth of new hair. 8. Genetics. The origin of your severe hair fall or baldness can be traced back to your ancestors. So, your genes can be a factor behind your hair fall problem. If this is the cause, your body then becomes unable to produce new hair. Apart from the changes that you can make in your lifestyle to address the causes of your hair fall, there are also techniques out there that you can employ to permanently treat your problem, such as platelet rich plasma, mesotherapy, stem cell therapy, ozone activated platelet rich plasma & hair transplant. In order to have healthy volume of hair on your head, the rate of hair loss and replacement should be in tandem. With age, your hair growth cycle shows signs of slowing down and factors like age, disease, and hormonal changes among others affect the pace at which an individual hair follicle moves through the 3 phases of the hair cycle. A disruption in your hair cycle can give rise to loss of hair that’s rapid and unexpected. Hair loss or alopecia can affect both men and women. So what can cause your hair to fall at an alarming rate? The reasons behind hair loss could be many, but here are 6 major ones: 1. Lack of protein in your diet When you exclude protein from your diet, your body starts to conserve the protein that it has by altering the growth cycle of your hair. In such cases, your hair enters into the resting stage, resulting in zero hair growth. In India, 9 out of 10 people are said to suffer from low amounts of protein in their diet, with 91% vegetarians reporting protein deficiency. 2. Iron deficiency Iron plays a very important role in the transportation of oxygen to the different organs of the body. Lack of iron in your diet (which is the principle reason behind anaemia) can give rise to several health problems including hair loss. Your body attempts to direct oxygen to important organs so as to support their functioning. As a result, your scalp witnesses a low supply of oxygen, which causes hair loss. 3. Vitamin D-3 deficiency Deficiency of vitamin D-3 gives rise to a type of hair loss called Telogen Effluvium (TE). This is a temporary hair thinning phenomenon that takes place when the all the hair on your scalp enter the resting phase at the same time, subsequently causing you to shed a large amount of hair later on. 4. Smoking Smoking can also affect the health of your hair, especially the rate at which it falls and the number of strands lost in a day. A research carried out by the Harvard School of Public Health has revealed that smoking can cause a rise in a hormone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT). An increase in DHT level prevents new hair cells from growing and causes hair follicles to reduce in size with each hair cycle. As a result, the area on your scalp that gets affected by DHT experiences a lack of hair growth. 5. Use of testosterone supplements in gym Intake of testosterone in the form of supplements and injections to build muscle mass can trigger hair loss in men. This takes place when the testosterone in these supplements gets changed into DHT, thereby affecting your hair loss rate and amount. 6. Past illnesses (dengue, TB and typhoid) Falling of hair can also be brought on by illnesses such as typhoid, TB and dengue as the hair growth cycle comes to a stop. Hormonal or metabolic stress that is experienced during the course of such diseases may cause hairfall. What are the treatments available to cure hair loss? 1. Hair transplant Hair transplant is a minimally invasive surgical technique that transfers hair follicles taken from other parts of your body to the balding area. Known by the name of Follicular Unit Transplantation, this hair loss treatment can help to bring back the natural appearance of a fuller head of hair. Hair follicles are harvested using two procedures- follicular unit extraction and strip harvesting. Procedure can vary from 4-8 hours or more depending on the case. 2. Platelet- Rich Plasma (PRP) Platelet- Rich Plasma (PRP) is another treatment alternative that can reverse hair loss. It’s a simple non-surgical procedure that lasts about 60-90 minutes. In this form of hair treatment, the patient’s own blood cells, more specifically blood platelets are injected into the scalp. Usually 8 sittings are required with each sitting being 2 weeks apart for better results. 3. Low Level Laser (Light) Therapy (LLLT) This form of hair therapy utilises light energy of a specific wavelength and threshold to stimulate cellular activity, thereby promoting hair growth. Various controlled clinical tests have revealed its effectiveness in encouraging hair growth in both the genders.

I have done unprotected sex after 1 hour I have given her I pill how many days after I can do pregnancy teat.

I have done unprotected sex after 1 hour I have given her I pill how many days after I can do pregnancy teat.
Dear user. I can understand. If you have irregular period or are not sure when you ovulated, you can do a URINE HOME PREGNANCY TEST 14 days after you last had unprotected sex. However for accuracy of result, it is recommended to do the test 21 days after intercourse. To TEST PREGNANCY AT HOME simply add urine to a small piece of soap, if froth forms, or if the soap bubbles up, the test is positive. Mix ¼ cup of tuna juice and ¼ cup of vinegar in a plastic cup. Now pee in a separate cup and then add your urine to this mixture. After a few minutes, if the color changes to green, then you are pregnant. Take care.

How to Deal with Lubrication Issues in Women?

How to Deal with Lubrication Issues in Women?

Vaginal dryness can be caused due to a range of factors, including hormonal alterations, medicine side effects, psychological factors like stress and anxiety and much more. Female lubrication begins as your hormones signal your brain that you are being aroused sexually.

There is swelling in the inner and outer vaginal lips and your vulvovaginal glands start secreting fluids to help the process of penetration. But some women find it really difficult to feel wet and ready for the intercourse and experience painful intercourse before they finally lose interest in the whole act of lovemaking. Before you give up hope, ask yourself these few important questions and make the necessary changes to help yourself lubricate enough while enjoying intimate acts.

Are you too stressed out?
This is one of the most important reasons behind the lack of sexual drive in both men and women. It also occurs when you are ageing and approaching menopause. Lack of proper lubrication also takes place as your hormones rise and then fall, and you can consider meditating or performing a few yoga exercises in the morning to help your sex health.

Are you on a medication?
There are certain antibiotics and other medicines that lead to vaginal dryness as a form of a side effect and your sex health would come back to its normal state after seven days of finishing the course.

Are you hurrying too much?
It can so happen that your regular sexual activity is demanding for a longer course of foreplay, such as kissing, touching and cuddling, so that you get the time to become fully aroused. There are some erogenous spots in your body that crave for attention, and you can try a new position or a new sex toy or probably go with playful stroking and kissing all over the body to get stimulated.

Is everything about your diet alright?
Your diet mirrors how your body is going to respond to various situations. It is good to include loads of fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables in your diet and curb down those sweet meats, cream coffees, fries and junk foods and drink more water. You can also consider incorporating zinc and vitamin supplements as they help in lubrication.

Thankfully, these ways of handling lubrication issues are much easier than estrogen inserts. If you are experiencing symptoms like hot flashes owing to vaginal dryness, you can go for an oral medication as prescribed by a health expert. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a sexologist.

These are normal values, creatinine represents kidney function and albumin represents liver function. So her liver and kidney are functioning normally.
