Hello. Me and my gf had foreplay on 23rd july and rubbed our genitals. She had her last periods on 15th july. She had her underwear on. I was naked. But I did not ejaculate neither penetrated. Today is 16th and she still has not got her periods. We did urine test and it was negative. What could be the reason? And can she get pregnant?

In the circumstances of sexual excerpt that you described, it is unlikely that she is pregnant. This is even potentiated by fact fact that the test is negative.

Dear lybrate user, you may be suffering from a clinical condition called paraphimosis. The most conventional method to get rid of it is surgery. However, if you are unwilling to undergo surgery then you can try the following process at home. 1) buy any local anaesthetic gel (e. G. Lidocaine, lignocaine, xylocaine) from allopathic retail shop. 2) apply a little amount of that anaesthetic gel at the lower part of the prepuce of penis where the foreskin remains attached. 3) after application of the gel, retract the foreskin backwards as far as you can. Due to the anaesthetic property of the gel you will be able to retract the foreskin backwards to some extent more than you can do in normal condition. 4) release the foreskin when you feel pain 5) again repeat the same process. Do it continuously for at least 30 minutes in a day. Within a month you will feel that your foreskin has become loose.

How Your Salad Maybe Causing More Harm Than Good!

Doctor of Naturopathy & Natural Medicines, DM - Clinical Haematology

How Your Salad Maybe Causing More Harm Than Good!

Salads are often a meal option when you want to throw in a whole lot of fresh vegetables and nice dressing to go with it, for a comprehensive meal. It's light and fresh and extremely nutritious. That is what most people think.

However, in some cases, your salad may be doing more harm than good to your health:

  1. Eating fresh, raw vegetables may be good once in a while, but eating too much of raw veggies make it difficult for your digestive tract to break down and digest. You may start suffering from gas, indigestion or bloating.
  2. Most people eat salads to lose weight, but this works only according to your body type. There are certain body types for whom too many damp foods like salads, actually causes the body to retain the dampness and thus making it harder to lose weight.
  3. Avoid those so called 'fat free' salad dressings that have become so popular in the market. Such dressings take the fat out of it and try to replace it with something that is artificial and genetically modified. They also have high level of fructose corn syrup that is extremely damaging by adding to your fat and making you resistant to insulin.
  4. Avoid vegetables that have been grown with fertilizers and pesticides and opt for organic produce instead. Genetically modified (GMO) crops have been known to be the cause of several chronic diseases and conditions.
  5. A distinction must be made between healthy and unhealthy fats. Processed oils and refined oils that are added to salads can increase LDL cholesterol and make you prone to coronary heart disease.
  6. Adding too much protein to your salad can be counterproductive and redundant, exposing you to the risk of cancer.

This however, doesn't mean that you should stay away from your favorite salad, but to be aware of what goes into it and how much. Don't always be fooled by its freshness and pockets of flavor.

I hv sex weakness. My penis is nt tight n small in size n less thick. My condition is lyk impotent. please help me.
Reason should be known. Most of the times youngs indulge in fierce masturbation with tight fist excessively causing constriction of vessels of penis hampering blood flow. It should be corrected by use of pure classic ayurveda tila made of valuable herbs n minerals and organic substances in seasame or other high end oils. Neurotonics are added too. Massage helps dilate penile vessels. It's not commonly available. Do not mistake for cheap advertisement sex oils.

Dark sign on neck? Diabetes

Dark sign on neck? Diabetes
Are dark cracks behind neck a sign of diabetes?

Many overweight and obese people have darkened and a rather flaky texture behind neck, darkening in armpits and other parts of body with creases and folds like elbows, knees or knuckles. This is commonly mistaken as smudge of dirt, uncleanliness or lack of hygiene. Some people think that it is due to repeated friction caused by necklace or chains etc. In fact it is a sign of'diabetes' which is already developed or might develop in future.

This darkening is due to excessive cell growth and differentiation of fibroblasts caused by excess of insulin in the body especially in obese individuals and type 2 diabetes patients.

In obese individuals and type 2 diabetes patients excess amount of fat especially abdominal fat (tummy fat) causes resistance to action of insulin secreted by pancreas and tends to hamper its action. In return, body produces more and more insulin from pancreas to keep blood sugar under control. This excess amount of insulin secreted by body promotes this skin cell growth leading to the visible condition called'acanthosis nigricans' in medical terms.

After producing excess amount of insulin pancreas start exhausting, this converts into diabetes. At this stage diabetes can be prevented by simple lifestyle modifications & focussed weight loss.

Microalbuminuria is referred to as the excretion of 30-300 mg of albumin daily The detection of low levels of albumin excretion (termed microalbuminuria) has been linked to the identification of the early stages of diabetic kidney disease.

Whatare the causes of dengue and it's symptom when a person n is in that condition.
Dengue is a vector borne infectious disease, which spreads through bite of dengue virus infected Aedes mosquitoes in tropical and sub tropical areas mostly. This disease is a viral fever and the virus is dengue virus which have been known to have 4 types of strains or subspecies of dengue virus. These strains are spread mostly in Delhi and among these type 4 strain of dengue virus is rare and very dangerous according to AIIMS survey held last year. The most common symptoms are high fever associated with chills, rigor may or may not be present, Joint pain occurs in all big and small joints though small joints are less frequently involved, severe dehydration and bleeding tendency is also known to occur frequently. Dengue rashes are hemorrhagic red rashes which develop after 7 days of dengue fever over face, thorax and flexor surfaces of body due to thrombocytopenia. Diagnosis of dengue is only confirmed by ELISA test in any district or government hospital. So avoid rapid diagnostic kit in local pathological laboratory as kit test shows 50% false positive. If high fever occurs in this season, then get it treated and diagnosed urgently. Take care.
