Hello, Its better to get an ultrasound pelvis done to rule out any adnexal mass or organic cause. Though mild pain is common in initial few months.

Hi lybrate-user, you do not seem to be having any idea about what i-pill is all about. I would sincerely advise you to visit a gynaecologist for a detailed consulting session. Only then it would be possible to solve all your queries.

Reasons for Pain During Sex

M.A. (Scholar), BHMS
Sexologist, Mumbai
Reasons for Pain During Sex

There are a number of reasons that can cause pain during intercourse. Physical intimacy is one such thing that requires your physical and mental stimulation in order to create a satisfactory environment and peak appropriately.

From sexual interest to stimulation, excitement and even sexual peak - there are four distinct stages in the act of sex and sexual intercourse that inevitably follows, until orgasm. So, it is important to be in the right frame emotionally and physically in order for the four phases to progress properly towards sexual climax. Yet, there are a number of reasons that can cause a decline in sexual interest and drive, as well as a less than satisfactory sex life. One of the reasons includes pain that many people, especially women, experience during the act of sex. This is called Intercourse pain or even Dyspareunia. Following are the reasons behind this pain-

  1. Cervical Problems: Many times, problems with the cervix can lead to dryness which can cause pain during intercourse. This may occur due to infections and other such conditions which cause pain during deep penetration.
  2. Uterus Related Problems: There may be problems with the uterus including fibroids and other such growths in the lining which can lead to pain during intercourse. Also, the presence of Endometriosis can also cause pain during such activities. In this condition, the tissue lining usually ends up growing outside the uterus which can cause severe pain and other related symptoms.
  3. Pelvic Inflammatory Disease: This condition is also known as PID. In such cases, the tissue within the pelvic region can get infected to a great extent which causes a variety of painful symptoms and growths including pain during intercourse.
  4. Ectopic Pregnancy: When the fertilised egg develops outside the uterus, it is known as an ectopic pregnancy. In such cases, there may be pain in the region during sexual stimulation and activity.
  5. Vaginal Infections: Pain during sexual intercourse may also be experienced due to vaginal infections and other yeast infections as well as a condition known as Vaginismus which can lead to involuntary twitches and spasms that can arise because of fear of getting hurt.
  6. Lack of Lubrication: Excessive dryness and lack of lubrication, especially during stimulation can lead to pain during intercourse as well, as the opening does not expand or accommodate the male member properly. In such cases, one can use a lubricant.
  7. Stress: Many times, a stressful situation can keep one from enjoying stimulation which creates dryness and pain during intercourse.

Ensure that you see a doctor in case your problem is more than mere occasional pain, as it could also be a side effect of a more serious ailment.

Can multiple small follicles become normal? Is there any diet to be followed for getting normal egg size for pregnancy? How much time it will take. My age is 27 years. (for my wife. Is treatment there for getting pregnant by doing follicle size size normal. Pls help me.

Multiple tiny follicles spread out throughout the ovary are antral follicles and their numbers indicate good ovarian reserve. In each cycle around the 15th day one follicle has grown sufficiently to ovulate. If there is doubt about ovum quality you can go for amh and fsh tests. Otherwise any gynecologist can give you advice on how to conceive naturally.

Otoplasty - 13 Deformities for which You Can Opt for It

Cosmetic/Plastic Surgeon, Delhi
Otoplasty - 13 Deformities for which You Can Opt for It

Otoplasty is a cosmetic surgery which corrects the deformities or absence of the external ear. Otoplasty originated in ancient India during 800 BC.

When should you opt for an otoplasty?

  1. Cagot ear: This is a defect where there is no ear lobe attached to the ear.
  2. Cat’s ear: In this condition the outer side of the ear is pulled forward. It gives the person a more feline appearance.
  3. Cauliflower ear: This generally occurs when your ear looks like a cauliflower. This is also caused due to hematoma that occurs because of severe trauma.
  4. Cleft earlobe: In this condition, there is a notch on the fleshy part of the earlobe and can be corrected by otoplasty.
  5. Constricted ear: In this condition, some of the cartilage is discarded by surgery and a new one is reconstructed.
  6. Cryptotia: An incision is made and the upper part of the ear is exposed by contraction.
  7. Darwinian ear: This occurs when the rim cartilage of the conchal bone (hollow next to the ear canal) is flat and not folded outwards. The term ‘Darwinian ear’ is derived from the British biologist Charles Darwin.
  8. Lop ear: People who have lop ear generally have a protruding ear with a central depression, producing a more ‘cup ear’ appearance. The helix is enlarged after surgery.
  9. Macrotia: In this situation the ear of the patient is very big as compared to his head. So the surgeon makes incisions on the lateral surface of the pinna (outer ear).
  10. Microtia: In this condition the pinna is extremely small and the whole ear seems much smaller.
  11. Question mark ear: This is a rare defect. There is an indentation between the cartilage and the ear lobe rim. This is also known as Cosman ear.
  12. Scroll ear: The outer edge of the ear protrudes forward in such a condition.
  13. Stahl’s ear deformity: In this condition the outer skin and cartilage folds abnormally giving an ‘elf’ kind of appearance.

Otoplasty is usually done to improve the appearance of the ear in severe cases and it is important to get a recommendation from more than one doctor or more than one ENT specialist before going forward with this procedure.

I am afraid, I feel I am lacking libido. I am 19 years old and I am not getting any sexual feelings since 1 year or more. In this age people normally have erotic thoughts but I never think and never have such feelings. There is no fluid secretion from vagina also but I get my periods regularly. Am I over thinking or is my problem serious?

I am a 26 year old girl. Having irregular periods during to prolactin hormone. Wat can be done?

MBBS, MD Obs & Gynae, FNB Reproductive Medicine
Gynaecologist, Jalandhar
It is still not clear if the irregularity of periods is due to prolactin, thyroid should be normal and there should not be any polycystic ovaries on scan, plus body weight should be normal. Having ruled out all these one looks at prolactin specifically to be the cause and that too if the levels are more than 100ng/ml.

Hello, Yes, one should have withdrawal bleeding within 7-10 days. If not then you may be pregnant and you can check it with a serum beta hcg test after 7 days post last intercourse.
