Adding Spice to Sex Life- G Shot

Adding Spice to Sex Life- G Shot
Adding spice to sex life- g shot

The ultimate pleasure one gets from sex is by experiecing orgasm or climax many women do not feel orgasm by peno vaginal sex because when they are aroused, there is swelling of labia and clitoris. The clitoris moves behind the labia during arousal so that penis can't rub against it during trusting movements. For women seeking ultimate pleasure, this is frustrating and can lead to perception of inadequacy in both men and women
This can be improved in many cases by appropriate sex positions, your technique to stimulate your partner but still many times it is inadequate

These can be helped by surgical procedures like vaginoplasty (tighten the vagina! and g shot. G shot is opd procedure, no hospital addmission is needed and sex can be resumed after 2 weeks the g spot becomes more prominent, making sure you get adequate penile stimulation during sexual activity cost is affordable results are very very good

सुबह गुनगुने पानी में शहद डालकर पीने के लाभ

M.Sc - Psychology, PGDEMS, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Delhi
सुबह गुनगुने पानी में शहद डालकर पीने के लाभ
इस बात से हम सभी वाकिफ हैं कि सुबह एक गिलास गुनगुने पानी में नींबू का रस और शहद मिलाकर पीना स्‍वास्‍थ्‍य के लिए अच्‍छा होता है। शहद को गर्म पानी के साथ लेने से वजन कम होता है। और इसके नियमित सेवन से सेहत से जुड़ी कई समस्याओं से हमेशा के लिए निजात मिल सकती है।


पाचन सुधारे
अच्छे पाचन के लिए सुबह गर्म पानी में शहद और नींबू मिलाकर पीना चाहिए। यह पेट को साफ करने में मदद करता है। यह लीवर में रस के उत्‍पादन को बढ़ाता है जिससे पाचन में मदद मिलती है। नींबू में मौजूद एसिड आपके पाचन तंत्र में मदद करता है और अवांछित विषाक्त पदार्थों को बाहर निकालने में मदद करता है। इसके अलावा शहद एक एंटीबैक्‍टीरियल के रूप में कार्य करता है और आपके शरीर में मौजूद किसी भी तरह के संक्रमण को दूर करने में मदद करता है।


कब्‍ज दूर करें
यह मिश्रण कब्‍ज के लिए तत्‍काल उपाय है। यह आंत को प्रोत्‍साहित कर मल त्‍यागने में मदद करता है। इसके अलावा यह आंत्र म्‍यूकस में बढ़ावा देता है, पेट को हाइड्रेट करता है और सूखे मल को पानी में भिगो देता है। इन सब की एक साथ मौजूदगी से मल त्‍यागने में मदद करता है


लसीका प्रणाली की सफाई में मददगार
लसीका प्रणाली में पानी और आवश्यक तरल पदार्थ की कमी हो जाती है जिससे आपको सुस्त और थका हुआ महसूस होना, कब्ज, सोने में परेशानी, उच्च या निम्न रक्तचाप, तनाव और मानसिक स्‍वास्‍थ्‍य पर असर पड़ता है। सुबह-सुबह इस मिश्रण को पीने से लसीका प्रणाली को हाइड्रेट होने में मदद मिलती है जिससे न केवल सभी उपरोक्त लक्षणों बल्कि प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली में सुधार होता है


मौखिक स्वास्थ्य में सुधार
एसिडिक प्रकृति का नींबू, शहद और गुनगुने पानी के साथ सांसों की बदबू को तुरंत दूर करने में मददगार होता है। नींबू अपनी लार ग्रंथियों को सक्रिय और आक्रामक बैक्टीरिया को मार कर मुंह शुद्ध करने में मदद करता है। सांस में बदबू का कारण जीभ पर सफेद परत का गठन (मुख्य रूप से खाद्य और बैक्टीरिया से मिलकर) भी है, यह रस इस परत को प्रभावी ढंग से हटाकर सांस की बदबू से प्राकृतिक रूप से छुटकारा दिलाता है

मूत्रवर्धक के रूप में कार्य
शहद में बहुत ही शक्तिशाली एंटी-बैक्‍टीरियल के गुण होते हैं। इसमें कई प्रकार के संक्रमण को दूर करने की क्षमता होती है। नींबू और पानी के साथ यह मिश्रित – एक उत्कृष्ट मूत्रल (आपके शरीर से पानी बाहर निकलवाने वाला एजेंट) के रूप में कार्य करता है। यह आपके मूत्र मार्ग को साफ करने का सबसे अच्छा तरीका है। यूटीआई (यूरिनरी ट्रैक्ट इन्फेक्शन) से पीड़‍ित महिलाओं के लिए यह रस एक वरदान की तरह है क्‍योंकि यह संक्रमण को दूर करने में मदद करता हे।


एनर्जी लेवल बढ़ाये
शहद और गर्म पानी से शरीर में एनर्जी में भी वृद्धि होती है। शरीर में ज्यादा एनर्जी उत्पन्न होने से शरीर का मेटाबॉलिज्म और कार्यप्रणाली में भी वृद्धि होती है। शहद शरीर के अंगों को ठीक से काम करने के लिए प्रेरित करता है। सुबह में गर्म पानी नींबू के साथ लेने से आप दिन भर ऊर्जावान बने रह सकते हैं


वजन घटाने में मददगार
शहद और नींबू के साथ गर्म पानी लेने से भूख कम लगती है। शहद और नींबू के साथ गर्म पानी में बड़ी मात्रा में फाइबर मौजूद होता है, जो भूख की इच्छा और शूगर लेवल को कम करके पर्याप्त एनर्जी प्रदान करता है। इस‍ तरह से नियमित रूप से सुबह इसका सेवन करने से दिन भर में आपके द्वारा लिए गए भोजन की मात्रा कम हो जाएगी। अपने दिन की शुरुआत गुनगुने पानी के साथ शहद और नींबू के साथ करने से आपका वजन काफी हद तक कम हो जाएगा।


त्‍वचा के लिए लाभकारी
त्‍वचा के लिए नींबू के लाभ अनगिनत है लेकिन इसके अलावा इसमें मौजूद क्‍लीजिंग तत्‍व रक्त को शुद्ध करने में मदद करता है, नई रक्त कोशिकाओं के उत्पादन में मदद करता है। पानी और शहद का मिश्रण आपकी त्वचा के लिए एक अनूठा दृढ, जीवाणुरोधी और कोलेजन बढ़ाने वाले गुण होते है। इसलिए अगर आप स्वाभाविक रूप से चमकदार त्वचा चाहती हैं तो यह पेय आपके लिए बहुत लाभकारी साबित होगा


पोषक तत्वों और विटामिन से भरपूर
शहद और नींबू के गर्म पानी में कई जरूरी एंटी-आक्सीडेंट, विटामिन और पोषक तत्व पाए जाते हैं, इसके अलावा इसमें एंटी इफ्लेमेंटरी गुण भी मौजूद होते है। इसलिए इसके सेवन से शरीर की प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली मजबूत होती है। साथ ही यह वजन कम करने में सहायक होती हैं


रोग प्रतिरोधी क्षमता में मजबूती
शहद का सेवन शरीर के लिए काफी फायदेमंद है इसीलिए डॉक्टर हमेशा इसके सेवन की सलाह देते हैं। शहद के साथ नींबू और गुनगुने पानी के नियमित सेवन शरीर की प्रतिरोधी क्षमता बढ़ती है। शहद और नींबू में मौजूद एंटीऑक्सीडेंट्स और कई पोषक तत्व शरीर को मौसम बदलने के साथ होने वाले संक्रमणों से दूर रखने में मदद रखता हैं

5 Cheap Superfoods You'll Even Find In Your Local Mandi

5 Cheap Superfoods You'll Even Find In Your Local Mandi
5 Cheap Superfoods You'll Even Find In Your Local Mandi

Everyday you’ll hear about a new fancy ‘superfood’ that you absolutely must include in your daily diet. Some would ask you to gorge on goji berries, while some would advise bingeing on bee pollen (!). All this can get a little overwhelming for the average Indian individual. The good news is that there are certain everyday superfoods you can get from your local mandi.

Here are six of them you easily could and absolutely should include in your cart to guarantee a healthier and longer life without burning a hole in your wallet at an expensive gourmet store.

1. Carrots: Carrots are your best source for a healthy intake of Vitamin C, beta-carotene (Vitamin A), magnesium, potassium, and other antioxidants that are essential for the functioning of your immune system. Plus the good thing about carrots is you can have them anyway you want - so sauté them as a part of your mixed vegetables or feast on your favourite 'gajar ka halwa.' The choice is yours. One raw carrot a day is ideal.

2. Coconuts: An excellent source of essential fatty acids, raw coconuts are equipped with quite a few health benefits. They are anti-microbial food and natural hormone boosters. The other good thing about them- they don't add to your weight. Coconut fat is used by the liver for the production of energy, thereby keeping your weight in check. Raw coconut shreds, raw coconut butter and coconut flour are the forms in which you should consume this superfood. Although if you’re already obese, you should avoid consuming coconut as it has a high calorie and saturated fat content.

3. Apples: 'An apple a day, keeps the doctor away' did not become so popular without cause. High quantities of pectin, potassium and Vitamin C make it a superfood you just can't ignore. Apples are known to keep your heart healthy, lower your cholesterol and body weight and improve your mood. Plus, they keep you fuller for a longer time than unhealthy processed junk food. A fun fact you must know- the tarter the apple, the better it is for you as it contains more antioxidants. 3 apples a day are good to keep you healthy always.

4. Bananas: The superpower of bananas lies in its tryptophan content. Tryptophan is an amino acid that converts to serotonin. Serotonin is a brain neurotransmitter that improves your mood, so you should be sure to add it to your grocery list next time. Potassium and Vitamins B and C further make it a superfood you must try. Have it raw or make a smoothie for yourself to enjoy its benefits. Just like apples, 3 bananas a day are good enough.

5. Dark Chocolate: At the end of a hard day, it is important to treat yourself. So why not go for a healthy dose of dark chocolate? Dark chocolate is full of antioxidants, and is currently creating buzz in the medical world that it might be helpful in preventing cardiovascular disease. Do you need more reason to indulge?

A word of caution: Be careful with your consumption of dark chocolate, specifically if you suffer from cardiac disorders or have a high cholesterol. Its high calorie content is not good for those who are overweight either. It is advisable to have no more than 100 gms of dark chocolate in a day.

Hello. Possibility of pregnancy cannot be ruled out. Kindly wait for three four days and then get a UPT test done at home to confirm pregnancy. Generally due to the stress and physical strain experienced before marriage may also be the contributing factor for delay of your menses. So just relax and have a normal life without getting too much stressed about why am I not having my menses. Enjoy your new life. And I hope things might become easy for you. Tk care Kindly provide your valuable feedback if you are satisfied by my help. Gd day.

Hi Akshat. I would not suggest you to have sex at such as a young age as it can have severe mental and psychological impact later in life. However if you still do decide to go ahead, please follow safe sexual practice. Please use condoms at the least to prevent pregnancy.

Symptoms are suggestive of pregnancy. You should keep repeating urine test every week till you get menses, with good company card like velocit card or pregtest card. You need to read results within 5 minutes of putting urine and even faint line is suggestive of pregnancy.

Medical abortion can be done till 7 weeks of pregnancy. Her pregnancy is around 6 weeks so it can be done in her case. You need to hurry to get the abortion done with medicines. Gynecologist only can write a prescription for her. There are no natural methods or food to abort. With these medicines abortion occurs naturally.

My wife is 22 weeks pregnant with TWINS. Medically everything is fine. My doubt is that one of doctors opinion is that you should not have sex because twin pregnancy is a risky pregnancy. Now I am confused, whether to have sex or not?

DGO, MD, MRCOG, CCST, Accredation in Colposcopy
Gynaecologist, Kolkata
There is no evidence to suggest that sex is contraindicated in pregnancy including twins. But because complications in twins are more like preterm labour and mechanical discomfort sometimes doctors suggest it is better to avoid.

Plastic - Is It Good or Bad for Human Health?

B.Sc. Food & Nutrition, M.Sc. Food & Nutrition

Plastic - Is It Good or Bad for Human Health?

As you are reading this article, you may find several plastic items within your reach, your computer or phone, a pen, maybe an old food container in your kitchen. Today, plastic is everywhere in our lives. It has become an icon of convenience culture.

Is it really safe? 

Before we take a call whether plastic we are using is safe or not, it is important to understand different type of plastics. Society of plastic industry has grouped plastics into 7 different categories separate code called spi is given to each plastic, which is marked in triangle symbol at the bottom of each plastic bottle.

Spi code #1:
Plastic marked with an spi code of 1 is made with polyethylene terephthalate, which is also known as pete or pet. Pete-based containers sometimes absorb odours and flavors from foods and drinks that are stored inside of them. Items made from this plastic are commonly recycled.

Common use:
Beverage bottles, medicine jars, peanut butter jars, combs, beanbags, and rope.
Recycled pete is used to make tote bags, carpet, fiber fill material in winter clothing, and more.

Impression: okay to use. Not known to leach any chemicals that are suspected of causing cancer or disrupting hormones.


Spi code #2:
The spi code of 2 identifies plastic made with high-density polyethylene, or hdpe. Hdpe products are very safe and are not known to leach any chemicals into foods or drinks. (however, due to the risk of contamination from previously held substances, please note: it is never safe to reuse an hdpe bottle as a food or drink container if it didn't originally contain food or drink!) hdpe products are commonly recycled.

Common use:
Items made from this plastic include containers for milk, motor oil, shampoos and conditioners, soap bottles, detergents, and bleaches. Many personalized toys are made from this plastic as well.

Recycled hdpe is used to make plastic crates, plastic lumber, fencing, and more.

Impression: good to use. Not known to leach any chemicals that are suspected of causing cancer or disrupting hormones.


Spi code #3:
Plastic labeled with an spi code of 3 is made with polyvinyl chloride, or pvc. Pvc is not often recycled and can be harmful if ingested.

Common use:
Pvc is used for all kinds of pipes and tiles, but it's most commonly found in plumbing pipes. This kind of plastic should not come in contact with food items.

Recycled pvc is used to make flooring, mobile home skirting, and other industrial-grade items.

Impression: avoid using it as it contains plasticisers such as deha or phthalates that can leach into food.


Spi code #4:
Plastic marked with an spi code of 4 is made with low-density polyethylene, or ldpe. Ldpe is not commonly recycled, but it is recyclable in certain areas. It tends to be both durable and flexible. It also is not known to release harmful chemicals into objects in contact with it, making it a safe choice for food storage.

Common use:
Plastic cling wrap, sandwich bags, squeezable bottles, and plastic grocery bags all are made from ldpe.

Recycled ldpe is used to make garbage cans, lumber, furniture, and many other products seen in and around the house.

Impression: ok to use. Not known to leach any chemicals that are suspected of causing cancer or disrupting hormones, but not as widely recycled as #1 or #2.


Spi code #5:
Consumers will find the spi code of 5 on plastic items made with polypropylene, or pp. Pp can be recycled but is not accepted for recycling as commonly as pete or hdpe. This type of plastic is strong and can usually withstand higher temperatures.

Common use:
Among many other products, it is used to make plastic diapers, tupperware, margarine containers, yogurt boxes, syrup bottles, prescription bottles, and some stadium cups. Plastic bottle caps often are made from pp as well.

Recycled pp is used to make ice scrapers, rakes, battery cables, and similar items that need to be durable.

Impression: ok to use. Hazardous during production, but not known to leach any chemicals that are suspected of causing cancer or disrupting hormones. Not as widely recycled as #1 and #2.


Spi code #6:
Plastic marked with an spi code of 6 is made with polystyrene, also known as ps and most commonly known as styrofoam. Ps can be recycled, but not efficiently; recycling it takes a lot of energy, which means that few places accept it.

Common use:
Disposable coffee cups, plastic food boxes, plastic cutlery, packing foam, and packing peanuts are made from ps.

Recycled ps is used to make many different kinds of products, including insulation, license plate frames, and rulers.

Impression: avoid using it as researchers have investigated possible health risks from traces of styrene monomer. This risk seems to be low.


Spi code #7:
The spi code of 7 is used to designate miscellaneous types of plastic that are not defined by the other six codes. Bisphenol a (bpa), polycarbonate and polylactide are included in this category. These types of plastics are difficult to recycle.

Common use:
Polycarbonate, or pc, is used in baby bottles, large water bottles (multiple-gallon capacity), compact discs, and medical storage containers.

Recycled plastics in this category are used to make plastic lumber, among other products.

Impression: totally avoid using it as it polycarbonate can release bpa into food, especially when bottles are washed for reuse. Can leach into food as product ages.


Final conclusion:
Avoid recycling symbols 3, 6, and 7. While number 1 is considered safe, it is also best to avoid this plastic. Look for symbols 2, 4, and 5, as these plastics are considered to be safest.
