Hi lybrate-user. First check whether you are really pregnant or not by urine pregnancy test which is easily available at any medical store. If you are pregnant and you want to discontinue then there are medicines like Misoprostol which is used for abortion. But they are usually not given without prescription. So you may have to consult a gynecologist. And if you believe me you should as it is safe. As the tablets have many complications.

4 Causes Behind Lack Of Libido In Females

MD - Physician
Sexologist, Coimbatore
4 Causes Behind Lack Of Libido In Females

According to contemporary medical studies, loss of sexual desire is more common in women than in men. As many as 3 in 10 women have reduced or limited sexual interest in any kind of sexual activity. While the medical term for this problem is Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder (HSDD), it is generally understood as a loss of libido.
There are multiple factors that contribute to this problem including psychiatric or physical disorders, relationship issues, hormonal disorders etc. Let us look at the causes of this disorder at length:

1. Medical Disorders:

  • There are conditions such as endometriosis, fibroids and thyroid disorders that may have a negative impact on the sexual drive of a woman.
  • Certain medicines such as antidepressants, oral contraceptives, and medicines that lower blood pressure may also negatively impact the sexual drive in women.

2. Hormonal Disorders:

  • Dryness of the vagina and pain during sexual intercourse may affect sexual drive both mentally and physically.
  • After menopause, drop in the count of testosterone hormone also affects sexual drive which can result in loss of libido.
  • With advancing age, the level of androgens decrease, and hence results in a lack of sexual desire.

3. Lifestyle Disorders:

  • In some of the cases, lack of emotional support in a relationship plays a significant role in the loss of libido. Post baby 'coolness' may also act as a driving force for loss in libido.
  • In today's era, changing lifestyle is drastically affecting our lives. Following an unhealthy lifestyle may result in increased weight that may affect self-image, and indirectly may also affect the sexual desire.
  • Stress and job, family pressure and exhaustion may also influence sexual desire of a woman.

4. Psychological factors

  • Increasing cases of depression, anxiety, frustration, stress is also an important cause of loss of libido in the contemporary society.
  • After childbirth, new moms tend to suffer from lack of sleep, insufficient lubrication of the vagina and exhaustion, which may affect her sexual desire.

The first and foremost step towards dealing with it is to make your partner understand your problem. Then, it is important to consult a doctor to find out the underlying cause, thereafter, treatment of the cause can normalize the condition. Since there are multiple causes of the problem, there are different ways by which the loss of libido can be easily managed and treated. Some of them are discussed below:

  1. Treatment of Hormonal Disorders: The doctors will suitably treat problems like thyroids or recommend surgical treatment for fibroids to manage HSSD.
  2. Change in Medications: Since some of the medications are responsible for the lack of libido, the doctors will replace the medications to reverse this lack.
  3. Addressing the psychological factors: Your doctor will either arrange for suitable psychiatric sessions or ask your partner to coordinate mutually.
  4. Sex Therapy/Relationship Counseling or Testosterone Therapy: While sex therapy or relationship counseling brings back the interest by effectively counseling the individual, Testosterone therapy involves off-label usage of testosterone hormone since it is not recommended by FDA.

Proper treatment and consulting a medical expert can reverse this disorder efficiently. So, talk about the problem more openly to seek proper guidance and cure. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Sexologist.

Hi Sam. You are feeling dizzy and nauseous because of the high hormone levels because of the emergency pills you took. Since you vomited the medicine soon after taking them, the effectiveness of the medicines cannot be predicted. I suggest you wait for your period. If they get delayed by a week then get a pregnancy test and check. Let me know the results so we can proceed accordingly. All the best

Today as per your last period, is the 14th day and there is a possibility of an ovum developing in your ovary. This ovulation is accompanied with the mouth of the uterus opening and the secretions of this mouth are thinned out to facilitate the entry of sperms in preparation for a pregnancy as this is the fertile period. If you are married and want to have children you can have sexual relations now for 2-3 days and see if your period misses, which is a sign of pregnancy so what you are experiencing, i. E white discharge and low backache at midcycle, are due to ovulation. And its natural. Do not worry, its not a disease. If you are unmarried, then you must just take some minor painkiller if pain is more.

Try hCG test once more. If it comes negative this time, then it will be confirmed that she is not pregnant. Take Ashoka Q 10 drops in one glass water daily for 1 week. It will be alright. Still if you have any queries, please let me know. Take care. :)

My wife pregnant. Now she has finished 7 months.
For good delivery what she want to do?
Do walk daily. Eat balanced diet. Do not eat too much ghee as it tends to increase baby weight and may lead to difficult delivery. Can do exercise meant for third trimester after one month. If you want to know the predelivery exercise or diet chart, inform me.

Hello- A wide variety of factors can be responsible for irregular periods, among them: Significant weight gain or loss Overexercise Poor nutrition (or a diet too high in carbohydrates) Smoking Drug use Caffeine Excessive alcohol use (interfering with how the liver metabolizes estrogen and progesterone) Eating disorders Increased stress Polycystic ovarian syndrome/Estrogen dominance Uterine abnormalities (fibroids/cysts/polyps/endometriosis) Hormonal imbalances related to perimenopause Medications Chemotherapy Recent childbirth, miscarriage, or D&C Breastfeeding Irregularity in menses is not a good sign if you are planning pregnancy. Avoid above mentioned factors and start herbal medications.

All about Overactive Bladder

MBBS, MS - General Surgery, M.Ch - Urology
Urologist, Bangalore
All about Overactive Bladder

A problem pertaining to the storage function of the bladder that results in bouts of sudden, often uncontrollable urge to urinate is referred to as an overactive bladder. This condition which is marked by unconditioned or involuntary loss of urine can sometimes be quite difficult to stop. People who experience such a condition often feel humiliated and as such tend to limit their social and work life. Despite such, only a few are conscious that a brief evaluation can help them manage and overcome an overactive bladder.

Mechanism of Urination

During urination, the urine proceeds from the bladder and flows into the urethra which is located at the tip of the penis in men and above the vagina in women. As the bladder fills, the nerve signals in the brain prompts urination by coordinating the relaxation and contraction of the urinary sphincter muscles.

Causes and Symptoms of an Overactive Bladder

Primarily caused due to involuntary contraction and relaxation of sphincter muscles, several conditions can lead to overactive bladder. 

Some of them are: 
1. Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's and other neurological disorders
2. Poor kidney function due to diabetes
3. Medications that lead to increased production of urine
4. Bladder abnormalities like tumors or stones
5. Constipation
6. Excessive consumption of caffeine or alcohol

Some of the common signs of an overactive bladder are:
1. Bouts of sudden, uncontrollable urge to urinate
2. Awakening at night frequently to urinate
3. Urinating more than eight times a day

Risks
The risk of an overactive bladder gradually increases with age. Conditions, such as diabetes and an enlarged prostate results in the increased likelihood of an overactive bladder. People who have previously faced strokes and heart attacks experience cognitive decline, which often times lead to the development of an overactive bladder.

Urinary incontinence as well as a host of associated factors can be detrimental to your life. Emotional distress, interrupted sleep cycles and depression are some of the observed complications of this condition.

Thus if you experience or entertain suspicion of an overactive bladder, you should consider visiting a general physician who might refer you to a specialist, if need be.
