Hello, Virginity is not related to menses at all. A girl is a virgin till she has intercourse or the penis penetrates the vagina. However fingering can often cause rupture of hymen, which is labelled as mark of virginity.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. There is nothing to worry much about this. SOME women just do not bleed a lot, and it is normal. As long as you have a regular cycle of bleeding, which you DO appear to have, your fertility is fine. You just so happen to not bleed very much. If you do not have regular periods, for most of your previous life, you should consult a gynecologist in person. Take care.

Dear user. TO CAUSE PREGNANCY on a woman, sperm should be ejaculated inside the vagina or fresh sperm should be inseminated inside the vagina with some means. Pregnancy only happens when other aspects are too satisfied. . Take care.

If you are sexually active and are not using any regular contraception I would advice you to do a urine pregnancy test first. If negative then get a thyroid function and Hb done. If these are normal and your cycles continue to be regular but scanty then it is important to exclude pelvic infection including tuberculosis.

Dear Lybrate user It's normal that aome of the semen comes out after sex ,but this doesn't mean that conception will not occur. There is enough semen left inside for pregnancy.Still,for better results,your partner should keep lying for atleast 15 minutes to ensure that maximum amount is retained inside

Hello Experts,
Can you please tell me what should we take during pregnancy if suffering from fever?
YOU NEED TO SURE OF THE SOURCE OF THE INFECTION. WHETHER IT IS BACTERIAL OR VIRAL. VIRAL FEVER SAYS FOR 3 TO 5 DAYS EVEN IF TREATED AGGRESSIVELY. HOMEOPATHIC MEDICINE ARE CONSIDERED SAFEST IN PREGNANCY AS IT DO NOT HAVE ANY SIDE EFFECTS. SO OPT FOR HOMEOPATHY FOR SAFE PREGNANCY AND HEALTHY BABY. ALL THE BEST.

Hello- Unwanted tablet induce strong uterine contraction to abort the implantation of the zygote, so as to remove pregnancy through vaginal bleeding. Pain is due to this reason, it will pass away in few days. In the meanwhile, you can apply/massage warm sesame oil in your abdomen in a clock wise manner. It will reduce pain instantly.

Too Much Screen Time - How it Affects Your Health?

Too Much Screen Time - How it Affects Your Health?

A great amount of research has been done on the negative implications of screen time on children and adolescents, but even adults are greatly affected and may suffer from certain health problems due to screen addiction.

The following are a few health implications that one should be aware of when it comes to screen addiction

  1. Restructuring of the brain: This health impact is as complex as it sounds. An increased amount of screen time definitely does affect the grey and white matter which form the brain. Restructuring of the brain generally takes place in hard core electronic device users, although those who do not use electronic devices very frequently may also be at an increased risk. Excessive screen addiction can lead to shrinkage of the grey matter and can hinder the effective functioning of white matter.
  2. You are more susceptible to diabetes, high BP and obesity: The long hours of sitting in front of the computer or watching videos on your tab can affect the metabolic syndrome of the body, resulting in bad health. In fact, your metabolic syndrome may still be affected even though you partake in physical activity such as walking or running after hours of sitting still.
  3. You may suffer from eye strain: There is a very common saying that goes ‘too much TV will make your eyes go square’, although this is not true, too much screen time does lead to severe eye problems, the most common of which is eye strain. It can also lead to retina damage and research shows that use of electronic devices such as phones and tabs at night hinders with sleep too.
  4. Increases mortality rate and risk of cardiovascular disease: Long hours of playing video games or working in front of the laptop does increase the chances of cardiovascular disease. Moreover, a recent study reveals that an unhealthy amount of screen time increased the chances of death to 52%. Even if you do diligent exercise, the damage to your health is more due to excess screen time, whereas exercise reduces mortality risk only up to 4%.

Thus, it is very important that you manage your screen time strictly and continue to live a happy and healthy life. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

3 Physical Benefits Of Female Masturbation

Masturbation is a wonderful way to explore your physicality which is healthy as well as beneficial. According to research, 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:

Physical benefits of female masturbation:

  1. 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. 
  2. 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. 
  3. Prevents insomniaMasturbation 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.

Psychological or mental benefits of masturbation:

  1. 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.
  2. 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. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Sexologist.

The most important preventive measures

The most important preventive measures

Here are some #preventive measures that help keep to a minimum the risk of #hiv infection and #aids thus:

  •  if operations scheduled time if you can get your own blood as preserved blood. This eliminates a possible infection by blood transfusion.

  •  avoid resorting to medical care in developing countries involving blood or the use of syringes unless it is an absolute priority.

  •  drug abusers who inject illicit drugs should use syringes for single use. They can get them in any big city for free.

  •  avoid sharing with others razors, toothbrushes and other items that may come into contact with bodily fluids.

  •  mother-child: the risk of transmission of infection by vhi in a positive mother can avoid practice one cesarean and giving up breastfeeding the baby.

  •  sexuality:

  •  #safe-sex avoid sexual practices that blood, semen or vaginal mucus secretion and / injured or diseased skin may come into contact with the couple. Always use condoms during sex. For oral sex, try not to get semen or vaginal fluid in the mouth.

  •  also avoid having sex with many different people. A monogamous relationship only provides reliable protection against hiv and aids if both have mutual trust and can talk openly about possible infidelities.

New studies have shown that infection with HPV (human papillomavirus) can promote HIV transmission through sexual intercourse. Therefore, preventing the corresponding HPV infection prevent the spread of HIV.
