As with all addictions, individuals of all ages share this vice of pornography, they usually start with soft porn. Similar to drugs, they will also need larger doses to make them feel high. They will start searching for more explicit porn content. It cannot be ruled out that watching porn leads to negative effects in many cases such as: addicts feel isolate, spend large amount of time locked in their rooms or own world. Watching pornography individually separates them from social contact dissolving into a fantasy world far from reality. Pornographic addicted individuals may indulge in imagination with multiple partners by watching porn thus causing disillusionment in family lives. Try to become dominant, introvert, deal with anxiety, and develop low self esteem. Porn makes the real universe and world boring leaving its viewers dissatisfied and less sensitive to the emotional feelings of everyday life. According to a survey, men exposed to large volume of pornography tend to be less responsible in their career and suffer from reasoning ability. Men who view pornography in a very young age have been found to view women only as objects of desire than to have respect for them as human beings. They can also suffer from guilt, shame, failure of rejection or humiliation. The best way to overcome the addiction is to become socially active. Isolation and loneliness are said to be the main contributing factors. Addicts who have been given proper professional guidance and homoepathic treatment have overcome and conquered their habit of watching porn.

For you there is no test to detect pregnancy before 22 july. You may go for pregcolor urine test a home if periods are delayed beyond that. If the scanty period has come on the expected date, then it may be taken as normal. Most pregnancy symptoms start after a missed period, and weight gain starts only after the second month of pregnancy.

Firstly there's no lifelong cure for the common cold. Antibiotics are only effective against infections of throat and are of no use against cold viruses. Over-the-counter (otc) cold preparations won't cure a common cold or make it go away any sooner, and most have side effects. A saltwater gargle 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2tsp turmeric dissolved in a glass of warm water can temporarily relieve a sore or scratchy throat. To help relieve nasal congestion, try saline (pure saltwater) nasal drops. If you have a throat infection, or a viral cold then I will prescribe appropriate meds based on your detailed assessment. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

You can start'shaamak' herbal formulae but your determination is foremost. Otherwise the effects of masturbation will be evident after a long time and you will request many doctors to correct it. It's better to control it.

Hello lybrate user, Yes, Green tea from lipton , tetly is good to have since it is calorie free, rich in anti oxidants. It comes in variety of flavours too. But don't overconsume it as it also contains caffeine. You can safely drink 3-4 cups of green tea.

Anal sex is an unnatural way of having sex, it's a perversion. Besides it can cause serious problems like anal tear and fistulas in the passive partner. No matter how much you like it I would suggest you go for equally satisfying natural ways of sex. Once you start enjoying natural ways, you won't be wanting it ever

Hello- Menopause is a natural decline in reproductive hormones when a woman reaches her 40s or 50s. Common symptoms include hot flashes and vaginal dryness. There may also be sleep disturbances. The combination of these symptoms can cause anxiety or depression. Many women note that stress is not the major issue, and that depression is really frustration that their libido is not in sync with that of their partner. However certain aphrodisiac herbs (in ayurveda) and specific tips can offer significant help for this condition and overall well-being.

Hi Go slow. Slow and steady wins the race. You won't get John Abraham's biceps in one day. Take it easy. Increase the weights gradually. Don't compare with others. Try to add weights after every fortnight. Don't worry about the pain. It will go away. Use some pain lotions to relieve pain. It is just a case of fatigue. Aim for strength. Try to add some more protein to your diet through eggs or dal etc. All the best
