Hello. Do you have any history of irregular periods? Were you on any medication? The irregular menses are since your menarche (i.e. since menstrual cycle has started)? It could be due to simple nutritional deficiency or may be some other cause. First start taking homoeopathic treatment - Five Phos. and Alfaalfa Tonic - both thrice for 1 month. There after revert me back.

How many times we can do a safe sex after three months pregnancy. Because my wife is pregnant. So I want to know about this. Can we do sexual intercourse 2-3 times in a day. Second question is which is the best position for sexual intercourse during pregnancy.

During pregnancy sex is allowed at all times except first trimester and last month of pregnancy. The major reason for this is that there may be a chance of inducing bleeding during sex. You may have sex with your wife as she is beyond 3 months pregnancy as per your data. But during sex one has to follow the following norms. 1. Never force sex on a pregnant lady, as she is bound to have fears about it which she may not talk about 2. Always let the pregnant woman decide whether to have sex or not. The man is many a times always willing but the" fear" of something will go wrong can prevent her from taking part in it 3. During sex be gentle 4. Use condoms during sex, to prevent passage of infection from each other. During pregnancy the immunity of the mother is a bit low, and infections which are latent in a man can create havoc in the pregnant woman. 5. Sex is exhaustive for the woman and hence having sex more than once could invite trouble of exhaustion and may also invite some vaginal sorenes and on some occasion it may cause infections 6. Why not try non pentrtive sex like oral sex (woman doing to man), masturbation etc. This will give a sexual outlet and also prevent vaginal problems. 7. Oral sex (man doing to woman) is not safe in pregnancy as can at times cause dreaded complications like air embolism etc 8. The safest position for sex is where the lady is comfortable. So let her decide it. Having sex while she is on her side, or when women is on top are better than missionary position, but the choice remains with the woman. Women do not feel comfortable when they lie in missionary position as the pregnant uterus causes discomfort of breathing and also stomach contents come up in the throat at times.

In your case it depends that how efficient your doctor iss. Do you have full faith on his capabilities. If yes then wait for some more time as aked by your doctor. For your husband, is he on medication for low sperm count because if your problemis solved even then you will not conceive until prm count of your husband is normal.

How Phubbing Can Kill Your Romantic Marital Relationship?

How Phubbing Can Kill Your Romantic Marital Relationship?

A romantic relationship needs your dedication, devotion, and a lot of attention so it can blossom and grow strong. On the contrary, a lot of us take our relationship with our partners for granted, people don’t dedicate and pay attention to what they are sharing or expressing and are usually judgemental or even accusatory towards their partners.

Unfortunately, today’s couple is more at risk of damaging their beautiful relationship due to “phubbing”, a merging of the words “phone” and “snubbing”.

Phubbing occurs when your partner ignores you or is distracted from the conversation because of his or her phone. While phubbing can often happen innocently, such as checking Facebook at the dinner table, the constant use of smartphones in the presence of a romantic partner can undermine the relationship—making it feel as if someone’s partner is choosing their phone over them.

According to a recent American survey result, 46% of the participants had experienced Phubbing from their significant other, and 27% of the respondents disclosed that phubbing caused problems in their relationship. Not only did the study find that phubbing was affecting relationship security, but participants who reported being phubbed were also more likely to have depression and overall low life satisfaction.

 Why phubbing is creating problems in romantic relationships?

a. The time spent on smartphones reduces the amount of meaningful time spent with your partner.

b. The actual act of phubbing is one of the factors of couple arguments and fights, therefore creating less satisfaction in the relationship.

It is inevitable that we use our phones in front of our romantic partners, but making time for distraction-free communication is the key to strengthening your relationship with your partner. Remember your new Facebook or Twitter updates, new emails, Whatsapp pings, all of this can wait and most of them are generally forwarded messages and don't deserve your immediate/continuous attention at the cost of hurting and making your loved one feel ignored and/or less important. 

4 Ways to Confront Fear

4 Ways to Confront Fear

Fear is a very crippling feeling , which you might have to go through at various situations of life. You might be scared of heights, darkness, and public speaking, even scared of being lonely. Fear is very difficult to overcome as it can debilitate you and render you useless. Even if you cannot be superhuman, you can at least aim to be someone who can confront his/her fear and render the fear useless. Here are a few tips on how you can confront your fear:

  1.  Breathe: Breathing slowly and deeply actually helps. It calms your nerves and relaxes you. Short and shallow breaths can trigger panic and fear. If you breathe out longer than the time you take to breathe in, your body relaxes immediately. Try it; it actually works the best. Whenever you feel that you are panicking or that you are feeling afraid, take deep breaths. Concentrate on your breathing. Count till 7 when you breathe in and till 11 when you breathe out. You will be surprised to find out how quickly you have calmed down.
  2. Identify the fear: This is a very important step as you need to figure out why you are scared or afraid. There has to be a specific reason behind every single fear that you have. Try to identify that reason. Delve deep into your memory and try figuring out what exactly evoked the fear. Once you know the reason, you will be able to understand the base of your fear, and you will find it easier to overcome.
  3. Get ready to be peaceful: If you start feeling anxious, nervous or afraid, breathe in and out. Then think of how you will get positive outcomes from the particular act you are being anxious about. If you have to go into a dark room to get something and you are afraid of darkness, just think how you will be able to get what you desire if only you step into the darkness for a fraction of second. This will help build your confidence and will slowly get you accustomed to moving on with your fear.
  4. Control what you imagine: If you are afraid of something, whether tangible or not, your imaginations about it will run wild. You might start imagining stuff which are not even real or which might just ingrain your mind and establish the fear on solid ground. Hence it is high time you need to control your imagination. Imagination is a very unique gift if you want to create something beautiful, which will help encourage you. But if you start imagining how a spider will just grow in size and number, and will fly towards you, then you have to put a lid on it.

Being afraid is common. Even the bravest people are afraid. Don't be embarrassed about that. Just face it and try to let go of it.
