5 Ways to Boost Your Libido

5 Ways to Boost Your Libido

A healthy libido is as important as any other function within your body. However, as much as it is a physical function, a lot of it has to do with the most important sexual organ, the brain. If you or your partner is both physically and emotionally not in the right place, your sex drive suffers. This can create physical and emotional problems in your life. Some of the tips to help increase your sex drive are mentioned as follows.

  1. Getting the right amount of sleep: One of the major causes of low sex drive among men and women is the lack of sleep. Between household chores as well as office work and family commitments, the first thing that gets compromised on is sleep. Low sleep results in the drop in testosterone in both men and women thus, drastically lowering sex drive. This is the hormone primarily responsible for sex drive in both men and women. Ensure that you get at least 8 hours of sleep daily to maintain a healthy sex drive.
  2. Think and talk sex: Mostly women and men to some extent as well tend to put talking about sex in the no go zone. This along with the mundane discussions about household life tends to lower libido as well. Ensure that you put in some sex talk to keep the spark alive as this would keep your libido levels and the physical attraction levels high.
  3. Overweight and obesity is toxic for your sex drive: Excess fat and being overweight is a big libido killer in both men and women. Obesity and high body fat percentage inhibits testosterone production, thus, denting your sex drive. It is very important that you try to lose a few pounds and set goals to become fit as this will work wonders for your libido.
  4. Meditate and relax: When you are stressed, cortisol levels in your blood are increased as the adrenaline glands go into overdrive. This is one of the most common and major sex drive killers. It is thus, very important that you practice mediation and other relaxation techniques to ensure that stress levels are down which will help in boosting libido.
  5. A healthy diet: This is possibly one of the most important components in your life which determines how the physical side of libido is managed. Certain foods may kill your libido such as cheese and other dairy products, fried fatty foods, carbonated sodas among others. Some of the foods that are good for your libido would be ginger, watermelon, lettuce, and eggs.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Salt at fault

M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition, Certified Diabetes Educator
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Delhi
Salt at fault

Sodium commonly found in salt is usually consumed in excess in our food savouries. A lot of sodium is found in packaged foods in the form of additives preservatives too.

High sodium intake can be reduced by avoiding foods like


    Pickles and papads
    Sauces, ketchup spreads
    Salted butter and popcorn
    Namkeens and chips
    Salted canned fish and other foods


The increasing use of raw amla and lemon juice in food along with good intake of water is beneficial for people with high blood pressure.

I have already taken an i-pill twice in a year. Now me and my boyfriend had an unprotected sex 2 days back. We do not know that anything has happened or not. But we do not want a child. So is it okay if I take i pill again? Will it cause me issues in future pregnancy?

I pill is an emergency contraceptive and should be used carefully since it is a hormonal combination. It can affect your menstrual cycle and make it erratic. So I advise you to go on a regular contraceptive pill or condoms which have less side effects. If you had sex during your fertility period (day 10 th - day 16 th if your cycle) then you have no option but to take I pill otherwise you can avoid it. For future go on a regular contraceptive pill.

Hi, You would have not given much importance to your health during the anxiety and depression period and as a result your immunity also has decreased since you have not taken proper food, vegetables and fruits required to your body. Now start giving importance to your health firstly, drink as much water you can every day, take tender coconut, multigrains in some form or the other, fruits and vegetables also. Definitely you will become fit. Take care. Be healthy. With regards,

Safe hota once in a while, magar yeh koi contraception nahi hai regular use ke liye. Repeated use mein irregular periods ho sakte hai kuch dinon ke liye.

Iui means intrauterine insemination, means that the sperms are put around mouth of uterus by a sterile tiny pipe. It helps during ovulation days, guided by ultrasound ivf is in vitro fertilization or test tube baby unlike the procedure mentioned above where needles are not inserted in abdomen, here the egg is retrieved by special needle via vaginal route, guided by ultrasound. Many eggs are retrieved as medicines for ovulation stimulating are given sperms and eggs, fertilization takes place outside body and embryo is guarded for growth when it reaches 12 cells from one fertilized egg, it's carefully inserted within uterus and signs of implantation are watched by blood tests for beta hcg hormone once the levels of hormones are rising, the woman is put on further bed rest till her periods due date or may be more injections of beta hcg hormone and progesterone hormone supplements are given to retain pregnancy and to avoid miscarriage babies born through both modes are normal 1 st procedure is no trauma, 2 nd is done under general anesthesia.

pOLYMENORRHAGIA IS NOT A SIGN OF MENOPAUSE BUT A SIGN OF POSSIBLE organic endometrial or myometrial causes for excessive bleeding. She should get a ultrasound pelvis done soon to rule out any fibroids, submucosal polyp. Also a visit to gyn is important for ruling out cervical causes and for endometrial biopsy to rule out endometrial hyperplasia or cancer. Also a hormonal profile shall be required to complete the assessment.

When Should You Opt for Surrogacy and What Factors Should Be Considered?

DGO, MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology -, MBBS

When Should You Opt for Surrogacy and What Factors Should Be Considered?

When should you opt for surrogacy and what factors should you consider?

Surrogacy is the method that is used for reproduction in which a woman other than the woman, who wants to have the baby, agrees to undertake pregnancy and give birth to a child for the couple that appoints her. A couple can opt for surrogacy in the following conditions.

- infertility

In the case of females who cannot reproduce due to infertility or some other medical conditions that make the process risky for both the mother and the childlike heart diseases, liver infirmities and high blood pressure, surrogacy can opt for so that the couple can experience the bliss of becoming parents.

- if you are a single parent

A single parent can opt for surrogacy in order to fulfil his/her dream of having a child to live for.

- other factors

There are several other factors when a couple might want to opt for surrogacy. For instance, in couples, where the female is too busy building a stable career for herself and she cannot take the risk of opting for pregnancy, surrogacy can come to their rescue. Also, repeated miscarriages, pelvic disorder, hysterectomy, an impaired uterus or the absence of uterus can act as reasons to opt for surrogacy.

There are a few factors that need to be considered before opting for surrogacy. They are listed below.

Type of surrogacy

Traditional surrogacy and gestational surrogacy are the two options available. In traditional surrogacy, the surrogate mother not only carries the embryo in her womb until childbirth but also donates the egg. However in gestational surrogacy, the egg is taken from the biological mother and impregnated in the womb of the surrogate mother through in vitro fertilization techniques. The intended parents need to take a decision regarding the type of surrogacy that they wish to opt for.

Surrogacy laws

The intended parents must be aware of the surrogacy laws prevalent in their country so as to make sure that they can go through the entire process smoothly. For instance, in India, it is mandatory that the surrogate child should be biologically related to one of the two parents.

Cost of surrogacy

Another important factor that needs to be considered while opting for surrogacy is the cost of the undertaking. It can involve high costs due to the unpredictability of the situations surrounding the process, so the financial stability of the intended parents should be kept in mind. Also, choose the right agency or even if you choose an independent candidate to become the surrogate mother for your child, make a wise choice.

'consult'.
