Hello doc! I have an emergency query. I was intimate with my partner 3 days ago. There was no intercourse but there was sperm emission from him. There was no penetration though. I had my periods just the day after it. I found on the internet that there are chances of getting pregnant if the sperm falls on the vaginal area. But my periods is normal. Is there any chance I may be pregnant? Should I take any test?

During menopause, estrogen production slows and then stops. There are a number of changes, which occur in your body during this time. Periods become irregular and then stop. You may have hot flashes, mood swings, a deeper voice and an increase in facial hair. Vaginal dryness is another common symptom of menopause. It becomes even more common after menopause. Vaginal dryness also can occur at any age from a number of different causes. It may seem like just a minor irritation; however, it can be a major problem when it comes to your sex life. Here is everything you need to know about vaginal dryness:
What causes vaginal dryness in women
Even though menopause is the most common cause of vaginal dryness, it can happen at any age and there are various causes of vaginal dryness as well. Here they are;
- Childbirth and Breastfeeding: Childbirth as well as breastfeeding result in lower levels of estrogen and this can lead to vaginal dryness.
- Sjogrens Syndrome: This is an autoimmune disorder in which your immune system attacks the moisture producing cells in your body.
- Douching: Douching is a common practice done by women wherein, they wash their vagina using water and vinegar, knowing little that it can actually cause dryness.
As mentioned earlier, vaginal dryness is caused by a lack of estrogen. Here are some of the ways that estrogen is supplied to your body;
- Vaginal Estrogen Ring: This is a ring inserted into your vagina, which releases a steady stream of estrogen into your vaginal tissues. It needs a replacement, generally after three months.
- Vaginal Estrogen Tablet: A special device called an applicator is used to insert an estrogen tablet into your vagina.
- Vaginal Estrogen Cream: This also needs to be inserted through an applicator. It will be applied daily for the first two weeks after which, it will be applied one to three times a week. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

If you are experiencing lower back pain during pregnancy, you should know that it is a common complaint. The lower back pain may occur because of several factors associated with pregnancy. You gain weight, your center of gravity shifts and your hormones relax the ligaments present in your pelvic joints. There are several ways by which you can reduce your lower back pain during pregnancy. They are as follows:
- Practice good posture: As the baby grows inside you, your center of gravity changes in a forward direction. You may feel like falling forward and may lean back for prevention. This strains the lower back muscles and causes back pain during pregnancy. You need to maintain a good posture. Always stand tall and straight, hold your chest up high, and keep your shoulders backwards and relaxed. You should not lock your knees.
- Get proper gear: Get adequate gear for dealing with lower back pain during pregnancy. You must wear low heeled shoes having good arch support. Avoid wearing flat heeled shoes and high heels, which will shift your balance more forward, thereby increasing the chances of falling. You can also opt for a maternity support belt. This additional support might be helpful for you.
- Lift properly: While you are lifting an object, you should squat down, lifting your legs and arms. Do not bend at your waist and lift with your back. Know your limits before lifting anything.
- Sleep on your side: Sleep on your sides keeping your knees bent, instead of your back during pregnancy. You may also use support pillows between your knees, under your abdomen and at your back.
- Hot and cold massage: Although this method is not effective for long term relief, massaging your lower back with a hot pad followed by an ice pack may be effective for temporary pain relief.
- Engage in regular physical activity: Regular physical activity helps you in keeping your back strong and also relieves pain during pregnancy. You should opt for mild exercises such as walking and water exercises. You should consult a physical therapist for showing you effective stretches and aerobic exercises which are beneficial.
You can try stretching your lower back, resting your hands and knees and keeping your head in line with your back. Pull your stomach in, rounding your back a bit, and hold the position for some seconds. Several other complementary therapies are also effective in curing lower back pain during pregnancy. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.

Buerger's Disease Can Imperil Penis Health
Maintaining good penis health is crucial if a man is to get the maximum enjoyment and pleasure from his penis. That's one reason why taking good care of the penis, examining it regularly, using a quality penis health crème on a regular basis and being on the lookout for signs of problems is important. But as most men also realize, sometimes penis health can be affected by conditions which originate in or seem to have little to do with the penis itself. One such condition is Buerger's disease, a recurrent inflammatory condition.
About Buerger's disease
Also known by the more technical medical term of thromboangiitis obliterans, Buerger's disease involves inflammation and clotting of small and medium veins and arteries. Most of the time, this condition occurs in the extremities - the hands and the feet. However, there are recorded instances of Buerger's disease dwelling in the penis and/or scrotum.
When a man has Buerger's, the walls of the affected veins and arteries swell up, effectively narrowing the vein or artery. With the instrument narrowed, there is less room for blood to flow through, so blood flow (and the rate at which blood flows) is diminished. In time, this can lead to a complete blockage of the vessel, which means that anything in the vessel located beyond that clot is not getting any blood. Without blood, the tissue does not receive oxygen, and this in turn eventually causes the tissue to die. In extreme cases, gangrene can set in, which often leads to amputation. So if the blockage occurs in the penis or scrotum, a man runs the risk of a full or partial amputation of his most delicate parts.
Men are much more likely to get Buerger's disease, typically between the ages of 20 and 40. In the majority of cases, the victim is a smoker, and usually a heavy smoker. It also is more common among people of South Asian descent (suggesting a genetic factor at work), but it is not limited just to that demographic.
Because it is relatively rare, there is still a lot unknown about the disease. However, many scientists suspect it is an autoimmune reaction and that some ingredient in tobacco tends to trigger it.
Classic signs associated with Buerger's disease include pain in the affected area; when the pain occurs in the hands and feet, it may occur while in motion and disappear when at rest. The affected area also tends to be cold, a result of the lack of blood circulating through the area. Swelling and ulceration is not uncommon.
Some case reports in which the penis was affected include erectile dysfunction as an early warning signal.
The most effective treatment is to stop smoking. In many cases this not only stops the progression of the disease but also reverses much of the damage already inflicted. Exercise programs may also be used to help improve blood flow.
In some cases, electrotherapy and antibiotic treatments may be required, especially if ulceration is severe.
Men who smoke are advised to seek help to quit. Those who have symptoms indicating possible Buerger's disease should consult with their physician for assessment.
