I am an engineering student in VIT university. My basic problem is I am on more weight than it has to be for my height. I can reduce it by doing exercises or anything but the problem is I am thin on the upper part and fatty on the bottom. I hope you got me. Also my hip was somewhat wide but that was from my mother genes. So with this I looked like very thin feature from face, neck,hands, abdomen and from there it looks like an unmatched one. Is there any solution that I could get out of this because it does not look good when I wear series for any functions. Please do tell me.

shed weight the healthy way minus diet harts or rigid exercise plans. give up sugars and take less carbs like wheat/rice/bread/maida. reduce salt to minimum but you can sprinkle some spices on salads. boiled eggs/ roasted chane/ nuts are filling an d good source of proteins and healthy fats. eat as much as you like and can digest- seasonal fruits and vegetables one meal a day during evening only-roti-daal-subji-rice. no munching. walking is simple exercise cum meditation. swimming is good if facility available. get back after a month. since you are in a professional college and you have to study lots , do not do extra dieting /exercise.

First of all, be clear that pregnancy can't happen during menses! Secondly, since you took i-Pill which contains high dose progesterone, the body had hormonal disturbance which led to stoppage of menses in between.

Masturbation: For A Better Sex Life

BUMS, MD
Sexologist, Jaipur
Masturbation: For A Better Sex Life

Masturbation is considered as a good way of pleasuring oneself and leading to a more qualitative sex life. Masturbation is a sexual activity that is at par with sexual intercourse that will create a basis for an improved sex life. This will ensure that the need for sex is one that is based on respect and love, rather than a mere bodily function.

Let us find out how it helps in having a better sex life:

  • Awareness: Masturbating is also a great way to know more about your own sexual preferences and what you like in terms of sexual activities. This awareness helps in better understanding and channelling ones sexual appetite for even better gratification during intercourse.
  • Staying healthy: Masturbating can help in releasing even more dopamine and oxytoxin, both of which have a favourable effect on your brain and mood. These hormones can also help in improving your immune system in the long run.
  • Knowing your partner: Masturbating alone and with your partner can help in knowing your partner and his or her sexual preferences. This can help in pleasuring your partner in a better way which will further fortify the relationship.

Excessive masturbation is strongly recommended as it has its long-term side-effects:

  1. The use of sex toys and other accessories can further your satisfaction level. For instance, realistic vaginas can prove to be pretty handy in maximizing your sexual potency. Other credible sex toys are also available which are as helpful. Another effective technique of masturbating better is via porn or R-rated movies. By simultaneously watching movies while masturbating, your imagination gets fueled up with all kinds of sexual fantasies, providing you with more immediate satisfaction than usual.
  2. A change in position is also pretty effective in heightening your senses and providing a better feel whilst masturbating. Keeping your hand still and only moving your body is such a way. While doing this, you can masturbate while kneeling or standing or sitting or even swapping hands. The more the variety, the better. Moreover, interchanging positions in between has also been proved to be very effective.

My wife got pregnant (missed period which was supposed to b on 24.12.16). I went to doctor we have blood test as well as urine test. All test are OK in nature (no problem). Some times after working at office (continue sitting for 6-7 hr) c feels lower abdomen pain occasionally. So is it safe to have sex in missionary position in gentle manner? Or any suggestions in this regard.

Unfortunately there is no specific way where you can ensure that your wife's genes for complexion can be transferred to your baby. You can use healthy food and diet for your wife.

Unprotected sex, without condoms carries risk of pregnancy in a female. Also there is a risk of contracting sexually transmitted diseases in case of unprotected sex.

Writing on behalf of my mother. She will be 49 YO this Nov. She has a history of painful periods with heavy flow. She has fibroids on the uterine wall and has been undergoing treatment for several years. She was having Novelon OC for about 2 years. She often took the pills at a stretch for 1.5- 2 months with the doctors permission so the periods were delayed. A few months back her bleeding started inspire of the Novelon pills (taking two pills a day). So she consulted another doc who prescribed Regestrone Sandoz .5 mg. Taking the pills twice a day was showing light spotting so she consulted with the doc and started having 3 pills a day after which the bleeding completely stopped until she stopped taking the pills to get started with periods. The last usg done 2 months back shows that the uterus size and wall thickness have grown. Is this due to overuse of Novelon? Is it possible these irregularities are happening because she is approaching menopause? Her doc said she might need to get a biopsy done. Is this really anything serious? Pl reply asap as are all extremely worried.

Do not worry. Fibroids r very common. These problems r not becoz of novelon. But since she is having so much of bleeding. She needs to be investigated. Get her biopsy done. Also if size or number of fibroids are too much then she may even require surgery. Beware of quacks and do not use home remedies. Its a modern world where we have evidence based medicine. Follow the advice of a qualified gynaecologist.

There are a number of things that you can try to ease the pain. Wear a soft bra at night. Avoid jogging, aerobics or other high-impact exercises. Make sure your bra fits correctly – get properly measured by a specialist fitter (most department stores have one). If you are taking any hormones, such as the oral contraceptive pill or hormone replacement therapy (HRT), consider stopping them for a while to see if the breast pain lessens. Breast pain seems to be common in women who have recently started HRT. Try a low-fat diet. There is some evidence that high levels of saturated fats in the blood make the breasts more sensitive to hormone levels, so it may be worth changing your diet. Avoid fatty meat, cheese, full-fat milk, cream, butter and anything made of pastry. Instead eat oily fish, such as herring and mackerel, twice a week. Fill up with carbohydrates (bread, potatoes, rice, pasta), fresh fruit and vegetables.

My wife delivered our first child at the age of 35 in a gynic hospital. She had pph- dic after delivery. She was given carboprost, 2 units of blood, and 2 units of ff plasma (i do not know the volume in ml.). I faintly recall the doctor saying she had to compress the uterus. Maybe in 3 hours the bleeding stopped. The next day in the laboratory the clotting test gave normal results. My queries: 1) can dic occur during delivery without uterine atony? 2) my wife is 15-20 days pregnant now at the age of 42-43. Should we abort on the grounds of fear of pph-dic only, (not considering other things like down syndrome). Our gynaec says that pph may not necessarily occur. But if at all it occurs: can active management of the third stage of labour (or by any other method) her life be saved? what is the probability of risk? what will happen to an individual cannot be predicted but in what percentage the odds are, I would like to know. Whether we should take the risk? her hemoglobin is around 9-10.

The chances of a third stage complication like PPH ocurring in the next pregnancy is about 12 %. So it is not absolute. History of PPH is not a reason to have abortion this time around unless there is some other reason for it. Your wife needs to start taking iron supplements so as to raise her Hb levels to at least 11.5%. Percentage of odds doesnt matter as it may or may not happen however in the eevnt that severe PPH does happen there is a possibility that the doctor will consent her for emergency hysterectomy as a life saving measure

Using oral pills for abortion usually does not affect future pregnancies but may cause some disturbances in ovulatory cycles. For more details on the same consult a gynaecologist and choose an effective and safe method of termination of pregnancy as desired by both of you.

Dear lybrate user. Sex with condom do not cause prgnancy unless the condom breaks. It is only the second day. To determine pregnancy you need to wait for atleast 15 days. I suggest you both to read about ovulation cycle and menstruation periods and possible pregnancy cycle. I also suggest online sex education. Take care.

Reduction of weight has same principles of balancing calorie intake and using calories. Important is to maintain essential nutrition during that time, not to feel weak or less energetic at that time and maintain after reduction. If you are serious about it contact me on girish@ankurhospital.com as even at long distance I can suggest you details.
