Lybrate-user - you may take this problem seriously, you need a immediate treatment, homeopathic treatment is safe and effective, causes - 1) having very dry skin or eczema can cause cracked, sore and bleeding nipples. If you have an eczema-like condition on your nipples or breasts it may be caused by: irritants in a cream, lotion, soap or perfume. 2) infections 3) small, benign, or noncancerous, tumors 4) hypothyroidism, or an under active thyroid.

Piles in pregnancy :-



Coping with haemorrhoids when pregnant

Piles, also known as haemorrhoids, are enlarged and swollen veins in or around the lower rectum and anus. Anyone can get piles – they don't just happen in pregnancy. When you're pregnant, piles can occur because hormones make your veins relax.

Piles may itch, ache or feel sore. You can usually feel the lumpiness of piles around your anus. They may also bleed a little and can make going to the toilet uncomfortable or painful. You may also notice pain when passing a stool (faeces, poo) and a discharge of mucus afterwards. Sometimes, you may feel as though your bowels are still full and need emptying.  

Piles usually go away within weeks after the birth.

How to ease piles

Constipation can cause piles. If this is the case, try to keep your stools soft and regular.

You can help to ease piles, and prevent them, by making some changes to your diet and lifestyle, such as:

eating plenty of food that is high in fibre, like wholemeal bread and fruit and vegetables, and drinking plenty of water – this can help to prevent constipation, which can make piles worse, avoiding standing for long periods taking regular exercise to improve your circulation using a cloth wrung out in iced water to ease the pain – hold it gently against the piles if the piles stick out, push them gently back inside using a lubricating jelly avoiding straining to pass a stool, as this may make your piles worse after passing a stool, cleaning your anus with moist toilet paper instead of dry toilet paper patting, rather than rubbing, the area.

There are medicines that can help soothe inflammation around your anus. These treat the symptoms, but not the cause, of piles. Ask your doctor, if he/she can suggest a suitable ointment to help ease the pain. Don't use a cream or medication without checking with them first.

First you check your hcg in the blood (preg test), then caliculate the safe period, the safe is first 8 days after menses and 19th dady onwards in regular menses pattren. First confirm weather it is preg or not, then you ask for further follow up.

I had sex with my fiance. It didn't pain nor it bleed. I was free to move here and there and he didn't let the sperms go in. Is it I'm not a virgin? Or is it he didn't inserted his penis fully and will I become pregnant? I even fingered the place from where we get our periods that place is still hard and tight as it was before. And I had taken unripe papaya also to avoid getting pregnant is it ok. Please answer my questions.

1> Word virgin is given lot of undue importance. Till one has first intercourse person is called virgin. Not absolutely related to bleeding or pain 2> If sperms (from discharge of man) enter vagina then there is chance of pregnancy 3>Unripe papaya does not help to avoid pregnancy,

The 7-Day Detox Diet: Time to Get Healthy & Active

The 7-Day Detox Diet: Time to Get Healthy & Active
Smooth digestion and absorption of nutrients along with your liver’s efficient processing of toxins are absolutely critical for great health. That’s why a cleanse program can be a powerful tool to rejuvenate your body and skin from the inside out.

The key to comfortable cleanse is to ease yourself into the program, so that your body doesn’t go into a shock. Five days before you begin your detox, progressively eliminate alcohol, coffee, cigarettes, refined sugars, saturated fats and all processed foods. These can add as toxins in your body.

Increase fiber intake to help keep your colon clean. Along with the fiber from fruits and vegetables, include two tablespoon of chia seeds in a glass of water to eliminate toxins from your body. Don’t forget to drink lots of filtered water- at least eight glasses per day.

Another deterrent to good health is stress, as it triggers your body to release stress hormones. It’s a good idea to cleanse stressful life situations along with your body. Keep a diary and take a note not only of what you eat and drink but also your emotions.

I hope you are sufficiently motivated, now let’s get started with the specifics.

DAY 1

Add a tablespoon of chia seeds to your juice, for that extra fiber and power boost. (I don’t recommend juicing fruits as that will shoot up your sugar levels and we don’t want that happening).

LUNCH: Raw or lightly steamed vegetables with a variety of seasonal preferably organic vegetables .

SNACKS: Drink as much water, unsweetened herbal tea as you wish during the day. Aim for at least 8 glass of water within the day. Make a trail mix of nuts and seeds like walnuts, almonds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, melon seeds, chia seeds and flax seeds. Eat low GI fruits like guava, pear, apple, orange, strawberries, peach, plums and apricots.

DAY 2
Start the morning with half a lemon squeezed into warm water or cleansing herb tea. Follow with a brisk walk, bike ride, yoga or swimming

BREAKFAST: Fresh vegetable juice with 1 table spoon of chia seeds blended in. Choose from the list of juicing vegetables provided earlier.

Hi week ago I had sex for the first time and my bf was here to visit me for only a week so we did it a lot, I don't known if that has anything to do with my problem but this wasn't happening while I was having sex. After he left, like the next day when I went to pee I felt this weird sharp slight pain like in my bladder. I don't know how to explain it but that happens every time I pee and I feel like I have to pee all the time and when I do it's like nothing. I have a friend who said she had that same problem but it went away I just want to make sure I'm okay.

This looks like urinary tract infection called as honeymoon cystitis because it happens after sexual intercourse. You need to go for urine routine and culture tests and directly contact online or in person for appropriate line of action and treatment. It will be absolutely alright. Move on its needed.

4 Types of Contraception for Birth Control

MBBS
Sexologist, Delhi
4 Types of Contraception for Birth Control

There are a number of contraceptives available but which method of birth control suits you depends on your sexual life, preferences and your lifestyle as a whole. Professional medical help should be sought in order to understand what method of contraception sis ideal for you.

Here is a list of 4 types of contraceptives for birth control.

1. Barrier methods - Barrier methods are designed to prevent the sperm from entering the uterus. They constitute-

- Diaphragms: It is a shallow and flexible cup that is made of either latex or soft rubber. It is inserted into the vagina before the sexual intercourse where it prevents the sperm from entering the uterus.
- Cervical caps: It is a thin cup of silicone whose function is same as the diaphragm, only it is smaller in size, so less noticeable and more rigid as well.
- Contraceptive sponges: These are soft foam sponges that are filled with spermicide and are disposable. They are also inserted into the vagina before sexual intercourse in order to prevent pregnancy by killing the sperm cells or preventing them from entering the vagina.
- Spermicides: These are chemicals that can kill the sperm and hence assist in birth control.

Other methods include male condoms and female condoms.

2. Hormonal methods - Hormonal methods use hormones in order to either stop or regulate ovulation so as to prevent pregnancy. There are various methods through which hormones can be injected into the body. Some of them are-

- Contraceptive patch: It is a thin patch made of plastic that sticks to the skin and is responsible for releasing hormones into the bloodstream through the skin.
- Vaginal rings: A thin, flexible ring that is inserted into the vagina where it stays for 3 weeks and is removed after that, only to be re-inserted in the 5th week.
- Implantable rods: They are inserted under the skin of the upper arm of women where they release progestin.

Other methods include contraceptive pills and progestin-only pills.

3. Intrauterine methods of contraception - The intrauterine device is a small device, T-shaped that is inserted into the uterus in order to prevent pregnancy. The good thing about intrauterine devices is that they can remain functioning for many years at a stretch. IUDs are two types-

- Hormonal IUD(Intrauterine Device)
- Copper IUD


4. Sterilization

Sterilization is the most reliable contraceptive for birth control as it is permanent. It either prevents the release of sperm or the fertilization of the egg. Sterilization methods can either be surgical or non-surgical. Some of the sterilization techniques are-

- Tubal ligation: It is the surgical technique used in females.
- Vasectomy: It is the surgical technique of male contraception.

Other methods include sterilization implants.

Is it advisable to have intercourse during menstrual period?

MBBS
Sexologist,
If you and your partner are comfortable in doing sex during menses, you can have it. Good number of couples feel it is messy. Many women will have pain at menses. Many religions and cultures bar sex during menses. Medically there is no harm in doing sex at menstruation. But at menses there is a possibility of catching infection easily. Blood may irritate soft knob of penis. So it is advisable to use condom.
