Mai apni bat shi tarike se sbke samne nhi rakh pati hu. Mai kya kru jisse ye problem dur ho jay.
U might be suffering from anxiety, public phobia, inferiority compkex, low confidence status. To overcome all these, you need few sessions of councelling from psychologist.&they will try to exclude the origin/reason for your problem&will suggest few guide lines. You need to open up mentally very liberally to help them to find out the reason. Like your back ground, family environment, relations, attitude, way of thinking, any disappointments, shocks, low spirit abt what, fears, etc all.

How Poor Sleep Affects Your Sex Life

PG Dip (Sexual & Relationship Therapy), MRCPsych, Diploma in Psychological Medicine, MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Sexologist, Bangalore
How Poor Sleep Affects Your Sex Life

With more people frankly discussing about the loss of libido, studies have been conducted to investigate the reasons behind this. Surprisingly, in addition to hormonal and functional causes like genital issues, one common factor that causes loss of libido in both men and women is lifestyle changes. In addition to improper food habits and loss of exercise, loss of sleep is one of the most common causes of reduced sex drive.

Listed below are some reasons how sleep affects your sex drive:

  1. Lowers testosterone levels: Optimal amounts of testosterone in the body are required for having a good sex drive. Sleeplessness reduces the amount of testosterone produced in the body, thereby directly affecting the person's libido. A week with only 5 hours of sleep daily can reduce testosterone levels by 15%, which is equivalent to approximately 10 to 15 years of ageing.
  2. Vaginal lubrication: Studies have shown women who sleep regularly are wetter and have less pain during sex. Painful sex in turn reduces the sex drive in women.
  3. Erectile dysfunction: Improper sleep habits also reduces the quality of erection, thereby leaving you dissatisfied. Patients with sleep apnea who breathe irregularly with pauses in between were identified to have erectile dysfunction. The correlation gets stronger when the erectile dysfunction and sleep apnea improved drastically with regular sleep habits.
  4. Sleep induced depression: Sleeplessness leads to depression and general fatigue, and the last thing one wants to indulge in when depressed and tired is to have a sex.
  5. Impaired cognitive function: In addition to depression, deprived sleep also leaves you with overall reduced cognitive function, which leads to a vicious cycle of not reacting to your partner's instincts, etc. If you are not able to decipher whether or not the other person is interested, then the frequency and more importantly the quality of sex is reduced. This again sends out wrong signals to the partner, who will also not make the first move. And that again leads to a gradual decline of your sex life.
  6. Reduces love: Ever wondered why good sex is followed by a sound sleep and leaves you feeling fresh. There are strong chemical reasons to it sex induces hormones like prolactin which helps you relax and feel rested; it also produces the cuddle hormone oxytocin which increases the goodness feeling; it also reduces cortisol which is the stress hormone. All these increase feelings of belonging and love between the partners, which are affected by lack of sleep.

So, if you and your partner have been have been wondering how to rekindle your love life, think of getting a good night's sleep and sex will happen on its own.

It can either be due to iron deficiency anaemia, hormonal imbalance, or side effects of some medicines. The root cause can be excessive stress.

Primary objective of your treatment is weight reduction and maintain normal BMI of 18-25. This will regularize the monthly cycles and also help you get pregnant. You can take Metformin to reduce weight. You don’t need to take any medicine till 3 months for the menses to come. Only after 3 months of missed menses you should take medicines like progesterone Tablet (Deviry 10 mg twice a day for 5 days) for getting menses. For reducing your weight you should have brisk walk or jogging for 4-5 km daily, high protein diet (fish, chicken, mutton without fat, pulses, mushrooms), low carbohydrate diet (avoid rice, chapatti, bread, poha, upma, idli, dosa, potato, sugar etc and can use bhakri instead) and low fat i. E. Less oil and preferably use rice bran oil.

Hi, I had unprotected sex on 21st jan and took an i-pill on 22nd. My periods were on 12th jan. On 29th jan I started bleeding again. It's been 3 days since I have been bleeding.

IPill is an emergency contraceptive pill. It is meant for use for those couples who have infrequent sex. As per your data, your last menses was on 12th Jan and the unprotected intercourse happened on 21st jan. You took iPill on 22, and following that the bleeding has been there as clots. But its not heavy. This is normal. Some women have large amount of bleed, some have less. But iPill has caused bleeding and thats enough to see that pregnancy will mostly not happen. Relax. If you are worried you may do a Urine pregnancy test on 22nd Feb. To see that its negative or positive.

Hello, first get pregnancy test done in case you have active sexual life and if the pregnancy test is negative, then will have to rule out any other problem as there are many causes of irregular menses apart from pregnancy - nutritional deficiency, pcos, stress/ tension, excessive exertion, any other or recent medical condition, side effect of any medication, hormonal imbalance, etc. So, take her to a gynaecologist for examination and required investigation for coming to the final diagnosis and treatment.

Hello doctor from last 5 years I am diabetic my age is 33 yrs I came to know this when I conceive my first baby now the problem is that after having the baby for first year I was regular in checkups but now I am not going any where and taking insulin 20 in the morning and 20 in the evening want to consult a doctor what I have to do to give him that information before consulting him

MD DGO, Laparoscopic Surgery
Integrated Medicine Specialist, Mumbai
Integrative medicine is a recent advance, and a healing system through which conditions like Diabetes can be reversed. Yes thats right, reversed, so that its possible that your Insulin may be stopped and you may return to your normal vibrant health. Of course, this can be confirmed only after a detailed consultation and testing, but the system works. As an example, a 65 yr old patient, diabetic since 25 years and on high dose of Insulin, was able to reduce Insulin to 40% in one week.

Breast reduction and lifting surgery will reduce the size and tighten them. This is one of the most frequently performed surgeries and we are the pioneers in central India since last 30 years. To the best of our knowledge no medicines or creams work to increase or reduce the breast size. It is a day care procedure and you are discharge in a very short time from the hospital and it brings about an instant change in breast size and self esteem. No one wants surgery unless it is necessary. There is no medication to give the results. No one wants surgery unless it is necessary. There is no medication to give the results. No creams or pills actually work except psychologically. Surgery is the only answer. The surgery is almost painless. TO the best of our knowledge no medicines or creams work to increase./reduce or tighten the breast You would need adjustment either on one side alone or in both breasts depending on what you want.
