Importance of Pre-marital Counselling for Indian Couples

MBBS, M.S( Gynaecology)
Gynaecologist, Surat
Importance of Pre-marital Counselling for Indian Couples

A study published in the Journal of Family Psychology reveals that couples who opt for pre-marital counselling experience higher levels of conjugal satisfaction than couples who don’t go for it. Moreover, these couples, the study says, experience a 30% drop in the possibility of divorce over a 5-year period.

Pre-marital counselling is a wise choice as it can help you and your partner to better understand the dynamics of your relationship and build the foundation of a happy future together.

A pre-marital counselling helps you with the following factors-

1. Hygiene

Apart from stressing on the importance of personal health and hygiene, you would also hear a gynaecologist emphasising on the significance of sexual hygiene for a problem-free married life. While preventing infections that may affect your reproductive system, maintaining sexual hygiene can also significantly elevate the overall hygiene levels of your entire body.

2. Sex

Pre-marital sex counselling is essential as it helps to fill in the gaps in your knowledge of sex. During your consultation with a gynaecologist, you can expect to receive information about the male and female anatomy as well as about the actual act. Even thoughts like “sex can be painful” get addressed during the counselling.

3. Contraceptives

Counselling sessions with a gynaecologist can also help you in getting your facts right about pregnancy. He or she could guide you on how to work out safe and unsafe days to have sex; talk to you about contraceptive methods; and best family planning practices.

4. Folic acid for pregnancy

During a counselling session, you can expect to be encouraged by a gynaecologist to have Vitamin B (folic acid) before and during your pregnancy to avert birth defects in the brain and spinal cord of your potential offspring.  

5. Vaccines

Opting for a counselling session before marriage can help you to learn about vaccines that will protect you against cervical cancer (cancer of the cervix caused mainly by HPV- a virus) and rubella (a disease caused by the rubella virus, which can cause miscarriage, birth defects and stillbirth).

6. Medical investigations

You should also expect investigations based on the following tests-

a. Complete blood count test: The aim of this test is to assess your overall health and identify a range of disorders such as anaemia, leukaemia, and infection to name a few.

b. Fasting/blood sugar test: The test is performed to diagnose diabetes.  A fasting blood glucose level of less than 100mg/dl is considered normal.

c. Thyroid stimulating hormone test: This test is taken to check for problems in the thyroid gland.

d. Rubella test: It is used to identify antibodies that are formed in the blood, as a result of immunisation or the rubella infection.

e. HPLC (high performance liquid chromatography): The test is performed to determine Thalassemia.

f. Urine microscopy: The test helps in determining the condition of your urinary tract and kidney. It identifies injury, presence of disease or inflammation of these areas. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.

I am preparing for competitive exam for last 3 years but haven't gained much progress, have developed an escapist attitude, tend to over analyze things and find faults in everything. I want to study and pursue my dream job but I am not able to concentrate, I don't see progress, I am overwhelmed by the cut throat competition and thus waste my whole day, feel depressed and don't feel like doing anything.

Hi lybrate-user, just do your bit, study hard, dreams come true when one is dedicated to achieve it. Just work hard and don't bother about competition sooner or late you will ace it. Do some deep breathing exercise/say positive things to yourself that are motivating and mentally rehearse yourself achieving your goals step by step.

Identify your negative thoughts. Some might immediately spring to mind, but if you have trouble pinpointing them, consider journaling. Write down a sentence or two describing the negative thoughts whenever you have them. •Look for thoughts that make you feel sad or discouraged, such as: blaming or shaming yourself for things that are not your fault, interpreting simple mistakes as indicative of personal failings, or imagining small problems are bigger than they are ("making a mountain out of a molehill"). Stop the negative thought immediately. Once you've identified your negative thought, counteract it by saying something positive to yourself. For example, instead of saying, "I'm having a really bad morning, try saying something like, "This morning is rough, but my day will get better. Keep your mind on the positive. If you're struggling with this, keep this one trick in mind: never say something to yourself that you wouldn't say to someone else. Remind yourself to stay positive and it may just become a habit. Pay attention to your vocabulary. Do you find yourself frequently using absolute terms? For example, "I'll never be able to do this, or "I always mess this up. Absolute terms are often exaggerated and leave no room for explanation or understanding. •Your vocabulary includes what you speak out loud to others, as well as how you talk to yourself, whether verbally or mentally. Remove overly negative words from your vocabulary. Extreme terms like "terrible" and "disaster" shouldn't apply to minor annoyances and inconveniences. Toning down your language can help you put negative experiences into a healthier perspective. Replace these words with encouraging thoughts or praise. •When you do catch yourself using one of those words, immediately replace it in your thoughts with a less extreme term. "Terrible" can become "unfortunate" or "not as good as I had hoped. "Disaster" can become "inconvenience" or "challenge Turn the bad into good. Few situations are totally good or totally bad. Finding the good in an upsetting situation helps bad experiences seem less stark. If you find yourself starting to think a negative thought, immediately stop and consider a positive aspect. •For example: Imagine your computer stopped working, forcing you to replace an internal component. While inconvenient, the experience also gave you the opportunity to learn a new skill or reaffirm an existing skill. Start your day by thinking of 5 good things. They don't have to be lofty or ambitious things. They can be as simple as the smell of a good cup of coffee or the sound of your favorite song. Thinking of these things and saying them out loud means you start each day focusing on the positive. This creates an uplifting foundation for the rest of the day, making it more difficult for negativity to grow. •While you may feel silly verbalizing positive statements or affirmations, studies have shown that saying positive things out loud will actually make you more likely to believe what you're saying. This can make you happier and more focused if you're vocalizing positive thoughts. Enjoy your day. Though you may be busy, little things can keep your spirits high and give your mind fewer reasons to stray into negative habits. Don't take things so seriously. Allow yourself to relax, laugh, and smile. Take opportunities to socialize and surround yourself with supportive positive people. •If you find yourself feeling stressed, take a short break and think of something other than the source of your stress. Practice healthy habits. Negative thinking and stress both reinforce one another. While negative thinking can create stress, other unhealthy living habits can contribute to the problem as well. Make an effort to eat fresh, nutritious food whenever possible, exercise regularly, and get plenty of sleep. •You may find that exercise is actually a good way to distract your mind from negative thoughts. •Avoid smoking, excessive drinking, or any other substance habits that put strain on your body. Control your environment. You are not helpless to your thoughts. If you're unhappy with something, change it. Playing music, layering clothes so you are never too warm or too cold, and adjusting lighting are just a few ways you can empower yourself against the feelings of helplessness associated with stress. •After making the changes, congratulate yourself on the improvement to your mood. Actively adjusting your mindset will make it easier to remove negative thoughts in the first place. Decompress and relax in the evening. Find a quiet, comfortable place and set aside time to relax. Mentally review your day and identify five positive things you experienced. Say each positive thing out loud or write them down in a journal. •You might also consider writing down things you're thankful for. In doing so, you're more likely to begin seeing the positive in things.

I'm really hyper these days. I burst out at certain situations where I think my anger is Justified. But others think it's uncalled for. Anyway I have started screaming very loudly. So much that later I shiver and have severe headaches. But this is not permanent. mostly i'm ok. Days are normal. I'm having fun. I laugh make people laugh. Do things for people. Just that I have very little patience for people who are hurtful or arrogant.

Dear user. Please don't worry unnecessarily. You are just 29. there are many areas where you are able to take decisions and there are very less areas where you are unable to. That is because you don't have enough experience in these areas. Experience can only help you take decisions. Get experienced. Take care.

You sound like a depressed person from anger turned inwards. Your withdrawal from people is quite typical of a person who is depressed. Suicide is no solution and is a cowardly act. Like is very precious and must be looked after very well. You may be suffering from the rejection issue and sometimes, out of frustration, you will reject yourself in the form of suicide. When depressed suicide will look like an option but believe me it is not. You get only one chance in this life and you must make the most of it. If you think that you cannot do anything with the anger (which incidentally is not true, but you believe so), then you will tend to turn the anger inwards toward yourself and blame yourself, and start to beat yourself black and blue. Anger, being energy, and when turned around will stifle your natural energy to make you feel lethargic and listless. Can you identify with the anger? If so, express it to someone, preferably to a counselor. Once this anger comes out, it will seem like a heavy weight has been lifted off of your back and your mood will return to normal. Don’t submit to it. If you find the fight is too much, then go for counseling first and then for medication. The combination is ideal to combat this condition. This is the only condition were you are required to literally do the opposite of what you feel like doing. Depression makes you want to withdraw, lie down, sleep, become lethargic, slow down, make you too lazy to even think etc. So when I suggested doing the opposite, you will need to fight this disease. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, and wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, eat more of proteins and vegetables, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch a lot of sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. I hope you can find someone to love and be loved too, if you are not already married. Whatever happens please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three things, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Do not live with lies because you will feel guilty and the depression will continue to plague you. Face the truth, always.

First of all you need to rule out the cause for stress and find the solution for it by having a talk with your closed ones. Otherwise this stress will cause a personal conflict. Besides this you can de-stress yourself by many ways Just take few minutes and go for relaxing from your busy schedule for Relaxing the mind- 1.Take slow, deep breaths. Or try other breathing exercises for relaxation. 2.Soak in a warm bath. 3.Listen to soothing music. 4.Practice mindful meditation. The goal of mindful meditation is to focus your attention on things that are happening right now in the present moment. 5.get a cup of herbal tea. Green tea is a source of L-Theanine, a chemical that helps relieve stress 6.Just a square of the sweet stuff like Dark chocolate can calm your nerves. 7.try a spoonful of honey, it will reduce inflammation in the brain, meaning it fights depression and anxiety. 8. Minty, fruity, or bubble-gum flavor, a stick of gum is a surprisingly quick and easy way to beat stress 9.You can close your eyes, it’s all right. Take a quick break from a busy office or a chaotic household by just lowering your eyelids. It’s an easy way to regain calm and focus. Just try it out these simple techniques for quick way to relax.

Hello- kulathi is a very good stone dissolver, if you are not facing any stone than it might be possible that your stone is flushed out or it might become so small to cause obstruction hence pain. Don't stop kulthi, stop your alpha blocker and continue neeri syrup 2 tsp twice daily from now on to remove stone completely and to prevent its recurrence.

Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. Addiction is abuse and addiction. If you’re ready to stop the substance and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from addiction and abuse —no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of addiction. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.
