At 16, she is still a teenager, with developing hormones & you have given her more hormones in the form of the pill. Please do not give her more pills. Btw legal age for girls to get married is 18. If it is a child marriage, wait for her to turn 18 before you think of a baby. I personally feel that despite government making age as 18, girls do not get mature enough to handle a baby till age 21.

Homeopathy for sexual problems

Sexual problems can arise at any stage of sexual activity, which prevents the individual from enjoying sexual activity. The causes of sexual difficulties may be psychological, physical or both.

Sexual disorders are classified into four categories

Sexual desire disorder- May be due to the decrease in the normal production of oestrogens and testosterone. Other causes being ageing, fatigue, and pregnancy. Some psychological causes such as Anxiety and Depression also causes low libido.

Sexual Arousal disorder- Grouped as frigidity in women and impotence in male. Impotence now known as erectile dysfunction is characterised by the difficulty to maintain an erection of the penis during sexual activity.

Orgasm disorder- Is a delay or absence of orgasm following the normal sexual excitement phase. It occurs in both male and female.

Sexual pain disorder- It mostly affects the women, known as Dysparuinia known as painful intercourse caused due to insufficient lubrication.

Vaginismus known as the spasm of muscles of the vaginal wall.

Some common symptoms:
In men are:
The absence of ejaculation.
Inability to maintain time of ejaculation.
Difficulty getting an erection.

In women are:
Low libido.
Difficulty reaching orgasm.
Burning pain in vulva or vagina.
Inadequate vaginal lubrication.

Physical factors in sexual difficulties:
Enlarged prostate gland
Endocrine disorders.
Hormonal changes.
Drugs such as alcohol, nicotine, narcotics.
Nerve damage.

Homeopathy for sexual problems:
Sexual disorders are disturbances in the sexual response which may be due physical or mental disturbances. Homeopathic Treatment acts by increasing blood supply and exciting the nerves. It is also helpful in sexual disorders associated with psychological disturbances. The Homeopathic Treatment gives a feeling of wellness and thus regains the vigor.

Hi I am 31 year old, planning to conceive within a month itself, Please guide me. I have hyperthyroid taking thyronorm 75 mcg daily. I have a regular menstrual cycle of 30 days. Also suggest me a good sperm friendly lubricant that would not disturb me in conception. Currently I am using vaseline and it is very comfortable, I use it in the outer opening only and some on my husband, would that affect us in conception or is it fine. I would be comfortable with olive or canola oil rather than other medicated jelly. Please suggest.

Hi, assuming your follicular growth and ovulation is normal, I need more information about your duration of marriage, previous conceptions, diabetes or polcystic ovaries etc, which can be evaluated by investigating. Hope your husband's sperm count and all its parameters are within normal limits. If you are ovulating well, you will not require lubricants since your own female hormones will do the job!

It is due to the ever growing problem of Acne and pimples that lead to the flooding of creams, lotions and face washes in the market to heal and cure Acne and pimples. You should wipe off the slightest amount of sweat from your face as soon as you perspire on entering your room from outside wash your face with an oil-free, non-moisturizing face wash. Take a low carbohydrate diet. Do some exercise daily. Drink lots of water to avoid constipation. Avoid pricking the pimples or popping the sebum as it may lead to black pigmentation & permanent scar formation.

Now the baby can not move around due to lack of space but you will still feel kicking movement. Daily after breakfast, lunch & dinner lie in the left lateral position& count the kicks for one hour, there should be 2_3 movements. If less than this or less than 10_12 in 10 hours, report immediately to the hospital.

Feeling Hungry During the Day? Here's 5 Ways to Keep Your Appetite in Check

Feeling Hungry During the Day? Here's 5 Ways to Keep Your Appetite in Check

Many people feel hungry throughout the day. They are lethargic until they lay their hands on food. These bouts of hunger go on like a vicious circle and if not resisted it can lead to health issues.

  1. A high: fiber diet can prevent unnecessary hunger: Your diet should be rich in fiber. Body takes a longer span of time to digest fiber rich food. It also makes you feel full for hours together. Having fiber will keep your bowel movements in control and is therefore healthy. Remember to add extra fiber to your bowl of cereals or salad to keep pangs of hunger at bay.
  2. Divide one heavy meal into two smaller meals: Eating heavy meals and that too less frequently is really bad for your health. This can make you feel hungry time and again. To control the constant rumbling inside your tummy, you should divide one big meal into two or more smaller meals. For instance, if you were supposed to eat sandwiches, boiled eggs and soup for lunch, you should probably eat sandwiches at noon and eat the soup and eggs any time later in the day.
  3. Never be a fast eater: Jumping on your food is the worst way of tackling things. Research studies show how a human brain takes more than twenty minutes to tell your body it is full and satisfied. If you don't wish to overeat throughout the day, you must consume your food slowly. This way the brain takes more time in realizing it is full and thus further time in feeling subsequent hunger.
  4. Drink more glasses of water: Every person should drink around three to four liters of water. Drinking water half an hour after a meal can keep your gustatory concerns in check for long. Water keeps you hydrated, helps in digestion and controls unnecessary hunger.
  5. Eat a good amount of protein: Protein makes you full in very little time and thus doesn't need to be consumed in great quantities. It will make you feel content for long as your blood sugar levels are in balance through protein consumption. Protein takes time to be digested.

5 Foods to Improve Your Sex Life

5 Foods to Improve Your Sex Life

Food is not only required for sustenance, but if chosen right, they also provide the right kind of boost to your sex life. Some of them are:

  1. Oysters: Oysters have been long known as aphrodisiacs; consisting of zinc that boosts the libido. Other than oysters, several sea foods like salmon and herring are also known for their ability to enhance your sex life.
  2. Arugula: This leafy green helps in arousal and also helps in maintaining your sexual health. They do that by absorbing those contaminants in the environment that adversely affect your libido.
  3. Avocados: The reputation of avocados as an aphrodisiac has been well established over the years. Packed with unsaturated fats and being extremely low in saturated fats, they are very good for the heart which in turn keeps the men away from the risk of erectile dysfunction.
  4. Almonds: Almonds have always been associated as stimulants. They are rich in nutrients and other minerals that help in boosting your sexual health and also aid in the process of reproduction.
  5. Strawberries: They not only look delicious, but are rich in folic acid, one that keeps away birth defects in women.

Can Being Overweight Cause Infertility

MBBS, PGDUS, Fellowship In Aesthetic Medicine, Advance Course In Diabetes - USA, MD - Medicine
Aesthetic Medicine Specialist, Delhi
Can Being Overweight Cause Infertility

Being overweight can be as problematic as being underweight. Both the situations can have an effect on the infertility in a woman. Usually, the body stores the sex hormones in the fat layers. That is why, if a person is underweight, she can have infertility issues, as there is not enough storage space for the hormones. In the same way if a person is overweight, then there is an excess of fat tissues and the amount of the hormone estrogen released is usually more than that the body can handle. This leads to a disruption of the chemicals and proteins, leading to adverse reactions and infertility.

Common Weight Related Infertility Reasons

Being overweight is somewhat linked with the Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) and an increase in estrogen hormone. Also, there is a greater chance of a luteal phase defect. Let us see how these can affect a woman:

  1. Estrogen: This hormone is produced by the fat cells, and if there is too much of estrogen production, then the body reacts to it in a similar manner when birth control pills are taken. Ovulation may or may not occur, and if it does, it might be inadequate. And the inadequate ovulation leads to luteal phase defect.
  2. Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS): This is basically an endocrine disorder with a combination of many symptoms. Symptoms are pain, irregular cycles, ovulatory pain, ovarian cysts, excessive body hair and heavy menstrual bleeding. Diagnosis for PCOS helps in determining the treatment for weight loss.
  3. Luteal Phase Defect: The luteal phase refers to the phase between the ovulation and the menses. The ideal time period for this phase is 14 days. LPD is generally caused by improper ovulation, and thus improving the quality of the follicles is necessary to correct the situation.

How Does Being Overweight Affect Conception Rate

As per a study which was published in the British Medical Journal, if women are too lean or too obese, they can have difficulty in conceiving and that fat distribution has an effect on the body. Women who have a large waist-hip ratio have difficulty in conceiving, and apple shaped women also face the same trouble. Usually, women who have PCOS have an apple shaped body.

Risk of Miscarriage Due To Being Overweight

Women suffering from PCOS and obesity have more chances of miscarriage as compared to others. The reason is that women with PCOS have increased LH, which tends to affect the pregnancy. However, it is noticed that even if excess fat does not play any role in pregnancy, women with PCOS have excess weight which creates high risk as compared to the others.

Finding Help for Overweight Issues is a Good Idea

Seeking help if you are overweight is always advisable. Consulting a good gynecologist can help along with weight management and fertility treatment. You shouldn't have any hesitations, and all the questions should be asked freely so as to get a holistic idea of the treatment. The doctor might suggest some tests and also conduct a physical examination of the lymph nodes and the abdomen, to check the ovaries and the uterus. Post physical examination, an internal examination of the cervix to check for infections is done, and if need be, a pap smear might be collected and sent to the lab for culture. At times, a trans-vaginal or an abdominal ultrasound might also be done to rule out the possibilities of abnormalities or others cysts. Tests to check the levels of hormones are also done.

It is always a wise decision to know how being overweight can impact the chances of becoming pregnant. Working towards losing weight and getting it under healthy BMI levels, can lead to the restoration of the hormones and in turn make you healthier.

Control parameters of pcod. Check the fertility factors in you and your husband. Pcod patients usually respond well to infertility treatment. If we can pinpoint the cause of infertility, the treatment will give you the baby. Good luck.

Plz tell me clearly as I am not virgin if I rub my clitoris and shake it does it loosens my vagina.

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), MD - Ayurveda
Sexologist, Haldwani
Hello- Rubbing or shaking the clitoris creates a squeeze and relax movement of vaginal muscles followed by the secretion of internal fluid s for lubrication. It does not looses the vagina. The effect due to stimulation is temporary .
