I got married in this January only 2016. When we tried to do intercourse my wife faces extreme pain and after every try infection occurs. With the help of Doctor now fungal and bacterial infection problem is resolved. But still intercourse is not done because her vagina remains completely dry, she never have sex arousal from herself .still pain problem is not resolved. She got so much fed from the thing that after every try we don't get success that she don't have sex arousal suffering from vaginal dryness. Doctors are not taking seriously they just say make up the mind but it's not easy. How to reduce pain as per check up everything is normal. Secondly if I talk about myself viagra not effects me which medicine should I take to hold for more time. Six months passed but we don't have any physical relationship till now.

I think it is a case of frigidity and dyspareunia. Such issues I have seen in a routine manner in many couples and reasons for this are 1) ignorance about basics of quality sexuality in both partners 2) learning sexuality by the way of hearsay guidance and watching porn. Such half-hearted methods either leads to such issues in many couples or leads to unsatisfactory sexual relationships in spite of consummation of marriage. Very important for both of you to just relax and first develop good relationship and understanding among both of you. Along with this begin to have a talk with an expert sexologist and relationship coach/specialist. Its absolutely possible to achieve quality in marriage and sexuality with this approach. Also avoid unnecessary over the counter medications and move on. Connect the expert. All the best.

What is the side effects using antibiotics ( Ciprofloaxcin and Norfloaxcin) on initial pregnancy stage.(Fusing time)

DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology)
Gynaecologist, Bangalore
Recent studies have shown that the use of fluoroquinolones (Ciprofloxacin and Norfloxacin) during early pregnancy is not associated with an increased risk of any major malformations. There were no clinically significant musculoskeletal dysfunctions in children exposed to fluoroquinolones in utero. However, chances of abortion are increased.

Planning a Baby

Becoming a parent is the most cherishing moment in a couple's life, hence it is important to ensure that both the mother and the baby are healthy. In today's world lot of factors like environmental, socio-economic, lifestyle associated, and addictions such as smoking and alcohol affect the health of both men and women. If the parents have ill health or unhealthy lifestyle practices, the same can complicate matters and also cause infertility.

Prenatal Counseling: Today's life, especially in the metro cities, is fast and becoming more stressful. Pregnancy is a period when the health of the baby is directly dependent on the health of the mother and father. Also during the early phase of pregnancy the development of a baby inside the womb is very rapid and is the base for its future. Preconception counseling helps parents to understand and identify the different factors affecting the growth of the baby along with the modifications or complete illumination of these factors (if possible) to maintain the healthy development of the baby and the health of the mother as well.

Hence preconception counseling is a good initiative towards a healthy outcome. It not only guides the parent about the healthy lifestyle but also helps to find out the genetic factors causing any malformation or medical conditions, affecting the baby- the mother- the whole family through an emotional, psychological, social and economic point of view. It helps the parents to understand the condition, its future consequences so that they are able to take informed decisions.

The Prenatal Counseling Guides About:

  • The right height and weight as per the BMI. This highlights the right attributes needed for conception
  • Blood pressure to check any abnormality
  • Medical history - whether they have had any medical treatment for any particular disease. If yes, then what are the medications? They check whether these are safe medications for pregnancy or not. The doctors then alter them accordingly to avoid any harmful effect on pregnancy.
  • Abdominal & pelvic examination to rule out any abnormality
  • Rubella screening- It is important to have a vaccine. As Rubella causes abortions or congenital birth defects in baby.
  • Varicella screening to assess any chances of future abnormalities
  • Depression screening as its medication are harmful for the baby & also if mother is not prepared for pregnancy then the outcome is usually affected.
  • Blood tests like urine analysis, complete blood count, sugar, blood group & tests for -STDS (HIV, VDRL), Hepatitis B, thyroid dysfunction
  • The importance of well-balanced nutritional diet and how to opt it
  • The change or modification in the lifestyle to reduce stress
  • Exercise and its benefits
  • Any family history of any disease like Haemophilia and the steps towards it
  • Quitting alcohol and smoking as they have adverse effects on the growth and development of baby
  • Any kind of drug addiction having ill effect on the health of both mother and baby

Thus prenatal counseling in planning a baby is a step towards ensuring a healthy outcome.

Pregnancy is possible only on one day of cycle that is ovulation day. So if you had unprotected sex for 1 year minimum think of meeting Gynecologist or infertility specialist. You should idealy loose 12 kg or more.

Without medicines the failure rate of family planning methods is high meaning many get pregnant even if they don't want. Condoms, intra-uterine contraceptive device (iucd or loop), safety period, coitus interruptus are methods you can learn in details.

Hi, heavy or prolonged menstrual bleeding, which is also called menorrhagia, can occur to any menstruating woman. It can also cause serious health problem such as iron-deficiency anemia. In order to stop heavy menstrual bleeding naturally, you can try different types of home remedies and making changes to your diet. Home remedies: -cinnamon, which you may use in cooking or baking, is also a well-known spice that may provide relief from heavy bleeding. Incorporate more cinnamon into your diet or take it alone to help calm the uterus and prevent heavy bleeding. Try mixing one cup of hot water with three teaspoon of powdered cinnamon and take it every thirty minutes during your menstrual cycle. -wash 2 cups of raspberry leaves and bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Strain and enjoy one cup up to three times a day. -placing an ice pack on your abdomen may reduce bleeding (no more than 20 minutes). It may also alleviate pain and swelling. -choose healthy and nutrient dense foods such as proteins including nuts, iron rich foods like dark green leafy vegetables, and dairy products like yogurt or cheese for calcium. Green beans contain high fiber and are enriched with vitamin b, which prevents abdominal cramps. Choose breads and grains that are fortified with iron, vitamin b, fiber and protein. Eat vegetables such as broccoli, kale, sweet potatoes, and spinach to help you get iron, calcium, and vitamin c. Eat fruits such as oranges and strawberries for vitamin c. Prunes and dried apricots are a good source of iron. Medication: take hamamelis q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water every 2 hrly during the menses. And for rest of the days, take five phos. And alfaalfa tonic. Take them thrice daily for 4 weeks and revert me back. Even after taking these medication, if there is no relief in the sufferings, need to get an ultrasound (pelvis) done first.
