When I am intimating with my husband I am getting horrible pain please tell me what to do.

MBBS

When I am intimating with my husband I am getting horrible pain please tell me what to do.
Coital pain is mostly due to dry vagina. And more you are terrified it will remain dry. A vicious cycle. Lubrication is a must before penetration. Give more time on foreplay. Once the vagina gets moist. That is the right time for penetration. Discuss this problem with your husband as he may not be aware of your pain. You can choose lubricant jelly from a pharmacy which will be helpful. Even saliva is a good choice. Sometimes vaginal pain occurs due to vaginal muscle spasm called Vaginismus. Doctors don't know exactly why vaginismus happens. It's usually linked to anxiety and fear of having sex. But it's unclear which came first, the vaginismus or the anxiety. Treatment Women with vaginismus can do exercises, in the privacy of their own home, to learn to control and relax the muscles around the vagina. The approach is called progressive desensitization, and the idea is to get comfortable with insertion. First, do Kegel exercises by squeezing the same muscles you use to stop the flow of urine when urinating. Squeeze the muscles. Hold for 2 seconds. Relax the muscles. Do about 20 Kegels at a time. You can do them as many times a day as you want to. Other medical problems like infections can also cause painful intercourse. Treatment will be done according to diagnosis.

I am male 36 year old and i suffering from depression last 2 month. What should I do? Please help me.

I am male 36 year old and i suffering from depression last 2 month. What should I do? Please help me.
This is the only condition were you are required to literally do the opposite of what you feel like doing. Depression makes you want to withdraw, lie down, sleep, become lethargic, slow down, make you too lazy to even think etc. So when I suggested doing the opposite, you will need to fight this disease. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, and wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, eat more of proteins and vegetables, attend yoga classes etc. Watch a lot of sitcoms on tv or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. I hope you can find someone to love and be loved too, if you are not already married. Whatever happens please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three things, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in god to alleviate your sufferings. If you are still not relieved from the depression, then go first to a counselor and later to a psychiatrist, if the counselor advises you.

Dear Shubham , academic results depend not only on how much you work hard but also on 'How you work. It is not so much about the number of hours you put in, it is more about how well you understand what you are studying. Stop comparing yourself to others. Also, you must practice to write answers to questions related to the topic that you have prepared. Attempting previous years' question papers helps build your confidence in the topics you have studied and also enhances your speed of solving the paper. You will be able to cover up your backs if you focus more on how you are studying.

Dear lybrate user, high sugar levels are definately a cause for you to worry about your mother. Stress can be major contributing factor for high sugar levels. It appears to me that your mother is emotional kind of person. She may not sharing her feelings with anyone. But that causes tension. She needs an outlet to express her emotions. I would suggest you to take her to a counsellor who will help her to relieve of her intense feelings. Once her tension is released then she will be able to think rationally and will have lesser stress.

Hello lybrate-user, I don't know why you feel like this that everyone abused you in past and even your parents didn't help you ever. But still I want to stay you that make your self positive and be positive for every thing. Try to see the second part or I can say their perceptions towards you or situation. Or you can do one more thing to improve your life that make your self so strong that no body can heart you and be a strong and ideal personality that everyone will phrase you for your qualities. If you can study try to read books on psychology. It will help you to come out from your problems. Read some inspirational stories also. IF you want any other help you can contact us.

Love relationships that break up do this to people. He will get over it soon enough if you keep him occupied and if you let him talk about his feelings. It not likely that that girl left him for no reason. It may appear so or he may say so but every action has a reaction and vice-versa. Even if he wants to talk ill of her but to you only, let him do so. That will help him give vent to his emotions and make him feel better. If the break up is final, then he must dispose of all reminders of her and avoid the people, places, situations and occasions to get her out of his system. This is a gradual process but if you are there by his side he can do it faster and better. Do not let him talk badly about her to the public and you can ensure that he only expresses his feelings in private and moves on in life. Help him to socialize, attend functions and programs that will be a good distraction for him. If he finds it too difficult then let him meet with a counselor and deal with the pain. Eventually, he needs to have learned a lesson so that he does not repeat the same in his next relationship, which is something he should not get into in a hurry. You can use some guidelines from this information to help out of his depression: In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Stress and anxiety are reactions to a situation and not a situation in itself. Gastric problems are often related to underlying anxiety which you may not be able to manage adequately by yourself. It's better to take psychiatric help so that root cause can be evaluated.

Sir, I need consultation on my love marriage with my cousin we are in deep love for the past 6 years. She is my mother sister daughter. Our parents are opposing it severely. I am very depressed no hope of life. I don't know how to convince them. They are obsessed with the society. We can't live without each other. We both are working. They are very negative minded people. They think what they say is only correct. They believe outsider's words rather than our words. They Are forcing her to marry other person. They are torturing us. We don't want to marry other people and spoil their lives and decided not marry any one but they are not listening to her. I don't know how to convince them at least to agree that not to force to marry other person. We love parents a lot. But they are not at least trying to understand our situation. They are concerned about themselves only. If you can deal this type cases let me know. Please help me.

If I may say so, all the accusations you have piled on your parents are actually true about both of you. You see, this marriage is a consanguineous marriage i. E. Being first cousins it is not medically advisable for you two to get married. Your offspring will suffer all kinds of abnormalities. So there is good reason for your parents to oppose it, not on social grounds alone. If you do not wish to have children of your own, then it is possible to marry this girl. Do not get so worked up about this whole situation. This is really a test of your love for each other: you can become all adamant and refuse to see reason or you can accept the facts and learn to move on. So, have a discussion with your parents and study the pros and cons in consultation with a doctor or counselor and sort this matter out for good.

Hello lybrate-user you cousin have some sort of psychosis it may be due to any disorder like schizophrenia, Bipolar disorder, Depression, Acute Psychotic disorders etc. The prognosis of the Psychotic disorders depends on the Disorder what he was suffering like schizophrenia have most poor outcome, and Acute Psychotic disorders has most favorable course. Recovery also depends on the treatment whether he is taking right medications for right duration. Sometimes premature termination of the treatment can lead to reappearance of the Disorder so it's advisable to continue medications for atleast one year and if needed more than it. Patients with psychosis can live life like a normal person. They have to keep in touch with psychiatrist until they completely remit from their disorders.

Tips for Healing a Broken Heart

1. Go through – don’t hide from - the experience. You need to fully experience all the negative emotions before the healing process can begin.

2. Allow yourself to wallow in your independence. Don’t rush into a new relationship. You don’t need another person to make you feel complete. You’re enough in yourself. You are NOT inadequate.

3. Make a list of your strengths. It’s important that you focus on your good qualities as a broken heart can cause our self-esteem to plummet. Make a note of your successes and accomplishments. They didn’t disappear with the relationship!

4. Don’t try to suppress all the memories you have. Allow yourself some time to go over one or two … But don’t pitch your tent there - as the future’s now your focus.

5. Reach out to others who are suffering. You’re not the only person who is having a hard time (although you often feel you are when you’re broken-hearted) … and comforting another will distract you from your pain.

6. Allow yourself to laugh, and allow yourself to cry. Both of these are healing, and can bring release. They can help us feel more “normal”, and can bring a sense of peace.

7. Make a “good and bad list”. Make a list of all the things that you need to stop doing, to try and put some distance between you and them. For example, if you’re always checking their stuff on facebook then you’ll likely find it is harder to get them out mind. Alternatively, going out for a jog or meeting up with a friend can help to lift your spirits, and to change the way you feel.

8. Hang onto your hope. When a relationship ends (or if our love is unrequited) we can feel that life is pointless as there’s nothing good ahead. But the future is still open – and there’s definitely hope … And one day you will notice that you’re smiling naturally.

I am loosing my concentrations in my work. In night I am not getting good sleep. Help me. Bring out from the problem.

This is not a good sign for you. It means that the activities on daily basis which you are suppose to do are not as per your liking or you are not capable of doing them. The best thing you can do is accept what your situation is, feel confident that you can make it better, start looking for solutions to the problems and start acting on the solutions. The best we can do is effort. Hard-work always pays, it might seem to you at stages that everything is going out of control but relax, thinking negative will not help. If the point of concern is a female or disappointment in love then you are too young right now to get your self messed up in such situations. Do not let emotions dominate your brains. If the point of concern is education and career, then just do not keep on expecting and start hardworking, you will get returns later on the right time. 1. Exercise daily 2. Have almonds raisins, milk etc 3. Add fruits and salads in diet hope you a speedy recovery.
