Mam I have mentioned already that my last bleeding was on 23rd July immediately after the day having unprotected sex on 22nd July. However I am not sure whether it was my normal periods or withdrawal bleeding. The previous menstruation was on 16th of June.

Periods may be missed for several reasons, including due to effect of ipill. Wait another week if don't get periods by that time then repeat pregnancy test.

Is Surgery The Only Cure For Endometriosis?

Is Surgery The Only Cure For Endometriosis?

Endometriosis is a chronic disorder that occurs when tissues, which form the inner lining of the uterus - known as the endometrium - are found outside the uterus. This abnormal growth of endometrial tissue can take place on any part of the pelvic and abdominal regions such as the ovaries, fallopian tubes, cervix, vagina, vulva, bladder, etc. Rare occurrences of endometriosis can also happen in the lungs, on the arms, and thighs among others.

There is tremendous research underway with regard to the causes of endometriosis in women as the exact root of its occurrence has not been determined.

The most plausible explanations for the development of this disease are as follows:

1. Retrograde menstruation: The most likely cause of endometriosis, this happens when menstrual blood and tissue backs up into the fallopian tubes and pelvis instead or getting expelled from the body. These displaced endometrial tissues then stick to the pelvic walls and grow on other organs in the region.

2. Endometrial cell transport: Endometrial cells and tissues are often transported through blood and lymph vessels to various parts of the body where they start to thrive.

3. Embryonic cell growth: Embryonic cells that line the walls of the pelvic and abdominal cavities often turn into endometrial tissue, which causes endometriosis.

4. Surgical scars: Endometrial cells often get surgically transplanted to scars in the abdomen and pelvis during surgical procedures such as c-sections or hysterectomies.

5. Immune system disorder: Dysfunction of the immune system prohibits the elimination of endometrial tissue outside the uterus.

6. Foetal development: Endometriosis can occur in a foetus that retains endometrial tissue, which develops into the disease later in life when triggered by pubertal hormones (hormones that trigger puberty).

7. Hormones: Endometriosis is stimulated by the hormone oestrogen, which leads to the disease when it reaches abnormal levels.

Endometriosis is a curable condition. The common treatments include:

1. Pain medicines: Over-the-counter painkillers and anti-inflammatory drugs help relieve the agony of endometriosis and burning menstruation.

2. Hormone therapy: The administration of certain hormones such as birth-control pills and other hormonal contraceptives, as well as drugs that block stimulation of the ovaries are effective in suppressing the development of endometriosis.

3. Surgery: This resorts to only when all other methods of treatment have failed. The initial surgical approach is to remove the extra-uterine endometrial growth. However, some cases might require a hysterectomy with complete removal of the uterus and ovaries.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

What causes cramps during menstruation? What can I do about my painful periods? Please help.
Causes of cramps- infection, endometriosis, some tumours, physiological (that subsides after pregnancy), abnormalities in hormones and in blood vessels. What you can do- consult gynecologist to reach the diagnosis and treat the specific cause. At your age, most often the cramp subsides in time, after short term treatment.

It's not because of sex. Lifestyle changes after marriage like dining out more frequently etc. is responsible for weight gain.

1) Sexual intercourse - from day 10 to day 18 of your period. 2) Do not use any lubricants. 3) Sexual intercourse should be in supine position only. 4) Take pillow below buttocks keep that for min. 30 minutes after sexual intercourse. 5) Do not eat heavy food in that day do the ovulation study at radiologist that is only way to know exact ovulation as well endometrial thickness that is as important as ovulation.

Sun Therapy for Premature Ejaculation

Sun therapy for Premature ejaculation.
Exposure of glans penis to sun light is a standard therapy for premature ejaculation and may be even more effective than antidepressant medications in treating this condition. World famous sexologist Dr. C sharath kumar has done research and shown that sun therapy works by desensitisation of the glans penis. It makes glans mucosa rough and tough. 
Also it accumulates melonin pigment. 
Sun therapy also helps in reducing balano posthitis which is one of the cause of pe.
Early morning or evening walk in the sun may help fight the depression and anxiety that often accompany pe. You might also consider investing in a sun lamp or light box, which may help raise serotonin by mimicking the bright rays of the sun.
