My friend is having abdominal cramps. She is near to her periods nd recently she got intimate with her boyfriend bt she took an i-pill within 40 hrs. What could be the reason. And she also wants to know if she could get pregnant with the lubricant that comes out of the penis. Not the ejaculation bt the lubricant. And that too the penis was not inserted into the vagina but it was just touched on the hymen. Thank you.

Health tips for winter season-

Health tips for winter season-
Boost immunity
It’s important to take care of our health throughout the year but during the winter months it becomes even more essential. Eating well, getting enough sleep and staying active are all important during winter to help keep you and your family healthy and to support your immune systems. Supplements containing herbs and nutrients such as echinacea, garlic, vitamin C, and zinc will help to support healthy immune function.

Keep moving
While it’s a little harder to find the motivation to exercise when it is cold outside, remember that keeping active during winter is essential to support our health and wellbeing. Moving your exercise indoors during winter will help to keep you warm as well as fit and healthy. Be sure to spend time warming up before you start your exercise as it can take a little longer for your joints to loosen up in the cold weather.

Eating well
As winter sets in it can be tempting to start eating more of those warm comfort foods that are often high in fat, salt and sugar. Instead, find comfort in foods such as warming and nourishing soups and stews full of flavour and healthy vegetables. Be sure your diet includes winter fruit and vegetables packed with vitamins and minerals such as sweet potato, green leafy vegetables, beetroot, kiwi fruit, mandarins, bananas, garlic and ginger.

Weight management
Ditching the exercise as well as the salads during winter can often lead to weight gain. While it may only be a small weight gain, it begins to add up as you get more and more winters under your belt! Although it’s tempting to hide behind those bulky winter clothes, by sticking to your healthy diet and exercise routine all year round, you’ll be much healthier in the long run and won’t dread the next swimming season with the kids!

Sleeping well
Proper sleep (eight hours for an adult) can help keep the body's immune system healthy and fight off colds. Avoid alcohol, caffeine and cigarettes as these substances can affect the quality of your sleep. Regular, moderate exercise, relaxation techniques and establishing a regular sleep routine may help to promote improved sleep.

Skin health
The cold weather can affect our skin and contribute to conditions such as dry, itchy skin, chill blains and eczema. This may be due to the reduced humidity, drinking less water than you would during summer or possibly due to reduced circulation which may decrease the flow of blood and nutrients to the skin. Using moisturisers daily may help to keep the skin moist and supple whilst supplements containing vitamin E or garlic help assist blood circulation. If any of your family suffers psoriasis or eczema, try taking fish oils. These provide omega-3 which can help manage these itchy skin conditions. And don’t forget the sunscreen, it is important to remember we can still get sunburnt when the weather is cold!

Keeping bugs at bay
Although we can do a lot to support our health and immunity during winter it is not always possible to avoid catching a cold or flu. The viruses that cause colds are spread by sneezing, coughing and hand contact. Wash or sanitise your hands regularly and avoid close contact with someone who has a cold. Keep household surfaces clean as well as kids’ toys when someone in the family has a cold. If you are ill, be sure to drink plenty of fluids, including water, hot tea and soup. Avoid alcohol and caffeine and get plenty of sleep. Supplements such as vitamin C, zinc and echinacea may help relieve the symptoms and reduce the duration of a cold.

Stress and healthy mood
While stress is a part of everyday life, and some stress helps us to meet challenging situations, excessive amounts of stress may be linked to negative effects across a range of areas. Stress can lower the resistance to nasty bugs by depressing the immune system. Importantly, stress increases your need for dietary magnesium which is important for muscle and nerve function. Many of the B vitamins e.g. B1, B5, B6 and B12 are also needed for a healthy nervous system. The herb St John's Wort may help to relieve nervousness, irritability and help support emotional balance. It may also be beneficial to help promote healthy mood balance but speak to your doctor or healthcare practitioner before starting a supplement like this.

During winter our hands and feet can often feel cold. Our hands and feet are at the extremities of our bodies which means they are the furthest from the heart which is pumping blood around our body to help keep us warm. Vitamin E and the herb Ginkgo help to support peripheral blood circulation, thereby alleviating cold hands and feet. Keep moving with gentle exercise to help improve circulation to the extremities of the body and don’t forget your socks and gloves! If you can’t seem to keep your hands warm (and it’s not bothering you excessively) take solace in the old saying “Cold hands, warm heart”!

Stay hydrated
Don’t forget to keep drinking water! As the weather cools down and our thirst decreases it is easy to forget to drink enough water. You still need to aim for about two litres/day of water during winter as it is essential for our body to function. If you struggle with plain water (like we do sometimes) try herbal tea. There are so many flavours available now that you’re sure to find some you enjoy.

If you meet just for three days you should do sexual contact on the mid days of your cycle as ovulation is around the mid days of the month, and if you are normal and healthy in all respects you should be able to conceive.

Health Benefits of Oysters

Sexologist Clinic
Sexologist, Faridabad

Love ’em or hate ’em, oysters are a staple of cuisines all over the world. Some people shudder at the thought of slurping down the slimy inside. Others can’t get enough of the briny flavor. 

Sexual Health:

The zinc found in oysters is why they are considered an age-old aphrodisiac! Zinc helps the body produce testosterone, a hormone critical in regulating women’s and men’s libido and sexual function. In men, research suggests that this mineral improves sperm count and swimming ability. In women, zinc may help ovaries, and therefore help in balancing and regulating the combination of estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone.

Immune Boosting:

These mollusks pack a solid dose of both vitamin E and C. They also contain various other minerals that help our immune system. The anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties of oysters also protect against free radicals, which are released during cellular metabolism.

Heart Health: 

Oysters positively influence heart health. They reduce the plaque that accumulates on arteries by inhibiting it from binding to the artery walls and blood vessels. Moreover, the high magnesium and potassium content in oysters helps lower blood pressure and relaxes the blood vessels. The vitamin E increases the flexibility and strength of cellular membranes.

Good for Eyes:

Oysters top the list of natural sources of zinc, the mineral that ensures that the eye’s pigment is adequately produced in the retina. The more zinc, the stronger your eyesight, because reduced pigmentation is often related to a reduction in the central visual field of vision.

Improves Brain Function:

Oysters are a rich source of B12, omega-3 fatty acids, zinc and iron, benefiting both brain function. Studies have shown that low iron in the brain reduces the ability of a person to concentrate while zinc deficiency can affect the memory.

Good for the Skin:

The powerful mineral zinc plays a big role in skin repair by helping create and boost collagen. Collagen is crucial for the structural support in skin and reduces sagging. It also helps maintain stronger nails, and keeps scalp and hair healthy.

Healthy vascular system and blood vessels:

A serving of oysters contains 16-18% of the daily recommended amount of vitamin C. Vitamin C  helps fight cardiovascular disease by activating the coenzymes the body needs to make norepinephrine- a chemical essential for nerve function. They are also high in omega–3 fatty acids, potassium, and magnesium which are known to reduce the  risk of heart attack, stroke, and also effective at lowering blood pressure.

Energy Boosting:

Oysters contain a good amount of B12 vitamins, which boost energy and turn the food we eat into energy. Recent studies suggest anywhere from 15-40% of Americans don’t have adequate levels of B12 for optimal health. Oysters also contain iron, which helps the body transport oxygen to individual cells giving an energy boost.

How to treat infertility with homeopathy?

How to treat infertility with homeopathy?

Nothing in the world can be more precious and valuable than holding and cuddling your baby for the first time. For most, pregnancy and parenthood gives a new dimension to their lives. It completes their family. People wait with bated breath for the beautiful phase to unfold. However, of late, infertility has been on the rise. As per a survey, 1 in every 1000, suffers from infertility issues. Infertility in males, as well as females, can be triggered by factors such as stress (personal or professional), unhealthy and sedentary lifestyle, unhealthy food habits, obesity, medical complications.

Medical assistance and treatments are available, but some of the treatments are way too expensive or have harmful and undesirable side effects. In this regard, homeopathy comes as a much-needed blessing. It is natural and has negligible or no side effects. Furthermore, most of the homeopathic medications are affordable, leaving you with only a small pinch in the pocket.

The first step in homeopathic treatment is identifying the root cause of infertility. In males, infertility can be due to

  1. Erectile dysfunction.
  2. Low semen count.
  3. Sexually transmitted infections like gonorrhea and chlamydia.
  4. Small testes or testicular injury.
  5. Abnormal or premature ejaculation.
  6. Obstruction in Vas deferens (Ejaculatory duct).
  7. Varicocele, Prostatitis.

Female infertility may be due to

  1. Thyroid problems.
  2. PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome), Endometriosis.
  3. Hormonal imbalance and irregular periods.
  4. Uterine fibroid.
  5. STD's like gonorrhea and chlamydia.
  6. Blocked fallopian tube.
  7. Uterine (cervix) abnormality.

Certain lifestyle habits and environmental factors also contribute towards male and female infertility.

Homeopathy to treat male infertility:

Some of the homeopathic medicines work wonders to improve male infertility.

  1. Caladium Seguinum: Erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation can be effectively treated with Caladium Seguinum (American Arum). In some men, erectile dysfunction results in pruritus (severe itching) in the genital organs. Caladium is the best bet to deal with pruritus.
  2. Agnus Castus (Chaste Tree): Agnus Castus is used to treat both male and female infertility. Men with erectile dysfunction, low libido, and low sperm count benefit immensely from this medicine. This medicine is a blessing for women with menstrual problems (irregular periods, heavy or scanty periods).
  3. Lycopodium Clavatum (Wolf's Foot): Men with serious erectile dysfunction (due to stress, anxiety) benefit from this medicine.
  4. Calcarea Carbonica: This medicine is helpful for men with a high libido but premature ejaculation.
  5. Conium: Conium is used to treat low libido and weak erections in men.

Homeopathy to treat female infertility:

  1. Pulsatilla: This homeopathic medicine comes as a relief for females who have infertility due to PCOD and irregular periods.
  2. Sepia: Infertility resulting from menstrual problems (scanty and short periods) can be successfully treated with Sepia. It is also helpful in case of women with hypoactive sexual desire.
  3. Natrum Carb: This homeopathic medicine is used to treat women who are unable to retain the sperm.
  4. Aletris Farinosa: This medicine is used to treat infertility triggered by heavy periods.

Though effective, these medicines should not be used without medical prescription and recommendation. Self-medication will do more harm than good. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Homeopath.

11 common-sense sex rules that can save your life!!!

Love should not motivate you to take anything for granted because the pleasure of sex will be all forgotten if something goes wrong – say an unwanted pregnancy, or worse, a Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD).

Sex is beautiful, but it is as dangerous and risky as it is rewarding.
This is the reason why you must ensure that you give yourself and your partner maximum protection when you decide to get together.

Love should not motivate you to take anything for granted because the pleasure of sex will be all forgotten if something goes wrong – say an unwanted pregnancy, or worse, a Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD).

Here are 11 common-sense tips to assist you in making sex safe and sweet:

Try to use a condom always – as a first rule, always use a condom when in doubt because it is your next surest protection after abstinence. This rule becomes even more important if you have random sex partners.

Keep your genitals clean – a clean genitalia is the first step to safe sex. Leaving dirt around your genitalia is allowing for harmful organisms to proliferate. You will transfer these orgasms during sex.

Urinate after sex – Sex experts have found out that urinating after sex help to prevent Urinary Tract Infections to a large extents by cleaning out the urethra.

Clean sex is the best sex – it is best if you always go for sex clean, and this means taking a shower at least. You cut down the risk very much by being clean. Germs and bacteria on your bodies will be exchanges during sex if you don’t clean up …remember there are STDs that are transmitted skin-to-skin.

Wash your hands before sex – even if for anything you have to go into sex without cleaning up, your hands should at least be washed, especially if there will be fingering involved. Germs and bacteria behind fingernails for example are a major risk…

Don’t insert same fingers into the anus and vagina – you will end up transferring very harmful germs and bacteria if you inset the same finger (sex toy) into the vagina and anus simultaneously. If you must involve both, then use two different toys or use a condom and change it

Use lubricants – penetration is always better when you have a lubricant involved. It makes the woman able to accommodate the penis more and even heightens the sensation for her. The flavoured ones can also make the air a bit more pleasant…

Keep your pubic hair shaved or trim – there is nothing as good as smelling and looking fresh down there. A clean and aired pubic hair is not only inviting but healthy…you stand lesser risk of skin infections when the place is neat…

Avoid sex where the genitalia have open sores – open sores are the easiest ways to transfer STDs and you should be careful how you handle them. Best thing is to avoid Never have oral sex where the genitals or mouth is injured. Injury around those places can be opportunity to transfer STDs so stay off oral sex – including kissing, until it heals.

Treat every infection the day you notice it – it is a gamble that never pays to allow a sexual infection to develop. The best thing is to deal with it the moment you notice anything strange about your genital region…

Be careful what you use as sex toys – these days people get daring when improvising household items as sex toys and they end up hurting themselves. If you look up sex injuries online, you’ll be shocked. So, before you use anything as a sex toy, ensure that it is not sharp, does not have any electric parts and cannot break easily. Also, it must be CLEAN always….

Care before Pregnancy (Pre-conceptional Care)

Care before Pregnancy (Pre-conceptional Care)
Most of us have an idea that the couple should go to gynecologist only after they fall pregnant or when there is difficulty in conceiving. But we all know that prevention is better than cure. Then why should not we take precaution to avoid complications in pregnancy so that we can have healthy mother and healthy baby.

Some of the diseases can manifest during pregnancy, like some diseases of heart, blood pressure, blood sugar etc. But if the couple comes to doctor when they are planning pregnancy, then we can diagnose it and start treatment so that pregnancy can be safe to both the mother and the baby.

On the other hand, some pre-existing disease may turn serious during pregnancy and endanger life of both mother and baby. This includes thyroid disease, hypertension, epilepsy, renal disease, cardiac disease etc. If taken care of properly, the disease can be controlled before pregnancy so that the risk can be reduced. Again all the drugs are not safe for the baby. So, if treated before pregnancy, the mother can be put on safer but effective drugs before pregnancy.

Some diseases may run in family and often goes undetected and can affect the baby. Thlassaemia, hemophilia etc are the best examples. So, if the couple comes to us before pregnancy, we can screen them to diagnose whether they are bearer of the disease or not and then we can take care to prevent birth of defective baby.

Some diseases indicate that there may be problems in having pregnancy, like problems in periods or abdominal pain in female, sexual problems in male and female etc. If treated properly, it will avoid unnecessary time wastage for trying for pregnancy.

The woman can be instructed how to remain healthy to have normal baby, before pregnancy. She can be advised some drugs (like folic acid), can be asked to avoid harmful drugs and substances (like drugs, excessive vitamin a, excessive vitamin d, excessive caffeine, smoking etc). Even the husband can be asked how to improve his fertility (by avoiding heat exposure to his scrotum).

Again some infections can be dangerous for the baby. So, before pregnancy we can treat the women for the infections and in some cases we can vaccinate her to prevent infection.

"a stitch in time saves nine. So, why don't you consult your gynecologist when you are planning for pregnancy? have smooth journey throughout pregnancy and enjoy parenthood.
