Hello Everyone!

My name is Dr. Aparna Deshmukh. I am a consultant psychiatrist sexologist. Today I will be talking on postpartum depression or postnatal depression. Postpartum depression is a mood disorder which is characterised by depressive symptoms in the period that follows childbirth in either of the parents. More commonly in mothers. It is important to know about postpartum depression because no.1 is common. About 15% of women suffer from postpartum depression in the postnatal period. Secondly, not only it is important from the point of view mother’s mental health but mother who suffers postpartum depression is unable to care for her infant effectively.

And it leads to profound effect, mental health and well-being of the child in the future too. And thirdly, in postpartum depression in its severe form which is postpartum psychosis, the mothers may have thoughts of harming their infants. And they may actually act upon this thought leading to actual harm to an infant and in some cases even death. So how do patients with postpartum depression presents. The postpartum depression onset is usually 2 weeks to 1 month after delivery or sometimes even miscarriage. Some professional even diagnose it after 1 year of child birth. Here the patient typically presents with behaviour and cognitive symptoms. The emotional symptoms include the patient saying that they are sad, sometimes they feel empty inside.

Some patients are irritable, and they get angry on trivial issues. On the other hands. Some patients become lethargic and complaint of low energy or loss of pleasure, loss of interest, loss of enthusiasm. And some patients become withdrawn, non-communicative. In different towards their infant. And in general, they have this fear and worry that they would not be able to care for their infant which leads to a feeling of inadequacy. And sometimes inappropriate guilt and sheen. Many patient’s complaints about a loss of concentration, poor memory that they are not able to take their decisions. The decision-making capacity has been reduced. Or they are unable to think clearly. Some have thoughts of hopelessness or helplessness. And even worklessness. And some patients in their severe illnesses may also have thoughts of humming themselves or even others.

The relatives might notice that the patient has either become withdrawn or non-communicative or they may feel that the patient is overwhelmed and anxious. They may notice that the patient is very lethargic. Or some patients, they sleep a lot. Mostly the whole day. And some patients do not sleep at all. So, sleep patterns may vary depending on the patient. Even the appetite changes are noticed in some patient. The severe form of postpartum depression that I was saying formally postpartum psychosis. Now in postpartum psychosis other than these symptoms, there is also presence of psychotic symptoms. These includes suspiciousness towards family member that they will harm them which leads to an agitative and aggressive behaviour of the patients. Sometimes the patient hallucinates i.e. the hear of voices that are inaudible to others. And the relatives may notice that the patient muttering to self, talking to self. Sometimes patient may also have excessive physical activities. Or they may talk excessively or there is the running of thoughts in their mind. So, these symptoms may also be the part of postpartum psychosis.

Another entity, that needs to be differentiated postpartum depression is postpartum blues or baby blues. Now this entity is more common. But fortunately, it is a milder form. And the depressive symptoms are milder. Patient may complaint of depressed mood, fluctuating moods, irritability, change in sleep and appetite pattern. But the good thing is that it is self-limiting. However, in some cases postpartum blues may progress to postpartum depression. So, how common is postpartum depression? Like I said 15% of women in their postnatal period suffer from postnatal depression. However, postpartum psychosis is rarer. Postpartum blues on the other hand much more common. Affecting 50-70% of the women in the postnatal period. What causes postnatal depression?

There are multiple factors: biological, psychological, social factors. Usually it is an interplay between these factors. Sometimes the combination of these factors that leads to postpartum depression. So, the hormonal changes that occur during and after pregnancy, the sleep deprivation, the emotional and physical stress of childbirth, the added responsibility of the child and poor social and family support can lead to postpartum depression. So, how do we treat postpartum depression? In mild cases, like psychotherapy like counseling helps but modern to severe cases the anti-depressants are the main stay of treatment. In postpartum psychosis. Antipsychotic medication is also prescribed. In severe cases, electroconvulsive therapy is also recommended.

Psychotherapy can be combining with the biological therapy. Mainly cognitive behavioral therapy and interpersonal therapy helps. Counseling and peer support group are also recommended. So, these were the some of the basic questions that I tried to answer about postpartum depression.

Hello everyone,

I am Dr. Vikas Deshmukh consultant psychiatrist and sexologist, I am working in Manovikas Clinic at Vashi, Navi Mumbai, Sector 17.

Friends aaj hum log baat karne wale hain aphrodisiac ke baare mein, toh aphrodisiac any sexual desire badane wali medicine ya davaiyan, ya foods unko aphrodisiac bolte hain. Generally hazaro saalon se bahut sara khana food, beverages, peene ki bahut pai ya jaise bolte hain woh log, herbs, medicine, ayurvedic dawaiya saree cheezo ko kafi acche log use karte hain aphrodisiac bolke yani sexual power badane wala bol ke. But kya in sab cheezo ka scientific evidence hai agar scientifically dekha jaye toh isme se bahut hai kam almost na ke barabar hi medicines or khane food ka, beverages ka scientific reason hai. Isme se kuch kuch davaiyan, kuch kuch herbs toh nuksan bhi karti hai, aur wo kafi mehngi bhi hoti hai lekin phir bhi blindly sab log woh lete jaate hain. Toh bahut sare examples oyster, banana, dates even aapka watermelon, vanilla, chocolate even toh kuch kuch cultures mei toh giraffe tongue, penis tiger ye funny cheeze bhi aphrodisiac bol ke use ki jati hai. Lekin inter scientific evidence nahi hai, isme se kuch cheeze feel good serotonin level badati hain aur serotonin level brain mein badne ki wajah se feel good effect aata hai, aur woh feel good effect ki wajah se aapke sexual desire kabhi kabhi badte hai, aapka interest badta hai toh uski wajah se aapka desire bade aisa lag sakta hai. Dusra, kuch kuch patients bolte hain ki nahi sir kuch kuch divaiyan bahut acche se kaam karti hain, toh uska ek reason hai koi bhi cheez agar mehengi dawa hai ya koi bhi ek accha doctor hai jiske upar aap pura belief karke aap koi cheez kharidte ho aur khate ho aur purey belief ke saath khate ho, toh ek placebo effect hota hai, placebo matlab aapka man n, aapka psyche, aapka body, us hisab se kaam karta hai acche effect ke liye aur us tarike se bhi kuch effect dikhta hai usko bolte hain placebo effect aur yeh ek scientific phenomena hai. So friends phir aap log bologe ki sabse accha product ya sabse accha sexual power badane wali cheeze ya kya kar sakte hain apne body ke liye ki hamara sexual power achha rahe, mere khayal se sabse acchey aphrodisiac hai aapka well rested body, relax state of mind thik hai, conductive monument activity jahan par koi dar nahi hai aapko aaram see aap sex kar pao, love for your partner, sexual attraction for your partner these are the best aphrodisiac. Second, most important aphrodisiac in your body is your health, agar aap physically health hain diabetes nahi hai, hypertension nahi hai, koi cardiac disease nahi hai toh aap ki sexual health acchi ho jaegi, agar aap mentally ill nahi hai no anxiety, no depression, mind relax hai toh aapka sexual desire badega so that is the best aphrodisiac. Bahut sarey patients bolte hain ki phir khana kya chahiye kya khaye hum, jo bhi cheez jo aapke heart ke liye, body ke liye healthy hai wo aapke penis ke liye aapke sexual activity ke liye healthy hai. Toh dates, banana yeh sari cheeze aapki body ke liye healthy hain toh aapki sexual activity ke liye bhi utni hi healthy hai, toh iska matlab ye nahi hai ki alag se sexual desire badati hai. Koi bhi ad dekhte ho bus stand pe, local mein, newspaper mein ki yeh medicine, ye dawai aisi hai jo sexual power badati hai yeh bahut mehngi hai aisa hai, toh kisi bhi ad ke upar believe na kare kyonki inn sabka koi bhi scientific evidence nahi hai. K oi bhi cheez scientific evidence ke hisab se dekhna chahiye toh bahut jyada in cheezon ke upar paise, time apna kharch na kare.

Mujhe sunne ke liye dhanyavad, aur jankari ke liye please lybrate.com se mujhe contact karne ki koshish kare.

Thank you very much.

Hello friends,

I am Dr Vikas Deshmukh.

To aaj hum baat karenge Insomnia ke baare mein, Insomnia yani neend kam aana toh aaj kal mai jo patients dekhta hoon usme every alternate patient mai insomnia ka dekhta hoon neend ki takleef hai. Toh itni takleef ye problem badd gayi hai stress aur tanav ki wajah se jaise ki aajkal is century ko century of insomnia bolne lage hai. So jab neend aapko nahi aane ka koi bada karan nahi hai jaise ki depression, anxiety, or psychosis toh mai neeche jo aapko bata raha hoon us tarike se aapka neend aane ke pattern mein sudhar kar sakte ho. Sabse pahla cheez hai yeh ek fix routine sone ka banana sone ka ek fix timing rakho, uthne ka ek fix timing rakho, bahut sare patient bolte hain ki sir nahi kal raat ko teen baje tak neend nahi hai toh hum nau-dus baje tak sote rahe. Initially aapko thoda taklif hoga jaldi uthna main agar neend late aati hai toh bhi thoda sa aapko thakan lagega lekin do teen din mein agar aap uss fix time pe uthna chalu rakhoge toh dheere dheere neend jaldi aayega, agar aap aisa nahi karte ho aur aap late uthte ho toh aap apna need complete karte ho late tak so ke aur phir aapko neend usi time pe aana chalu hoga ki late sona or late uthna. Toh fix time pe uthna bahut zaroori hai aur fix time pe sona bhi bahut zaroori hai. Dusri cheez sone se pehle ek apna ek fix routine rakna jaise ki thoda sa doodh peena, kisi kisi ko doodh peena achha lagta hai, khana thoda jaldi khana bhi zaroori cheez hai, gungune pani se ya warm water se baath lena, relaxation karna, reading karna ye sab cheeze aap kar sakte ho, dusri cheez hai ki sone se ek ghanta pehle saree light aap dim kar dijiye aapke bedroom ka wagera tv, mobile, gadget koi bhi dekhna band kar dijiye kyunki light agar jab dim hoti hai, andhera jab chane lagta hai toh apna body chemical secrete karta hai apna brain, jisko bolte hain melatonin iska matlab woh apni body ko indication deta hai ki abhi aap ko thakan ho gayi hai abhi aap ka sone ka time ho raha hai, ab sona chahiye. Toh iss hisab se sleep ya neend dena body chalu kar deti hai, lekin agar aap bright light mein kaam karoge toh brain ko aisa indication hota hai ke nahi nahi abhi din hi hai, abhi bhi kaam karne ka time hai aur woh melatonin secrete nahi karta hai aur aapko fresh feel ho sakta hai, energetic feel ho sakta hai aur main aane mein dikkat ho sakti hai, iss cheez ki wajah se ek ghanta pehle saree lights dim karna bahut zaroori hai. Sone se sabse important cheez ki raat mein che baje ke baad chai, coffee, cold drink ya heavy exercise na kare, uski wajah se thoda excitement level barta hai aur aapka neend aane mein takleef ho sakti hai. Bed khali neend ke liye bed sleep and bad association baniye ki bed pe jaana hai matlab sona hai, bed par baith ke aap koi office ka kaam kar rahe hai, koi household work kar rahi hai yeh sab cheeze mat kariye, brain ka aur bed ka association aisa rakiye ki bed pe jana hai matlab sona hai, toh ek habituation ho jata hai woh ek neend ke sath association ho jata hai bed ka ki aane ke baad apne aap brain tyari karta hai sone ki, theek hai baki kaam aap baki jagah pe kijiye bed pe mat kijiye. Third thing sone se jab aap sone ke liye jayenge aur aapko neend nahi aati hai toh baar baar aap watch dekhna band kijiye clock watching stop kijiye theek hai iski jagah thoda sa breathing techniques karna, thoda sa mind relaxation karna, meditation karna, ya koi book padna dim light mein, ya koi jaise aap soothing music sun sakte ho ye sari cheeje aap kar sakte ho, dusri cheez koi bhi drug abuse karna alcohol jyada ye karna ye sab cheeze kum rakhna zaroori hai, temperature jo hai room ka hai woh cool rehna zaroori hai, cooll temperature bahut zaroori hai jab aap sote hain 22 se 25 degree ke beech mein rakhiye kyunki aap sabko pata hai ki sardiyo mein ya jab winter season hai usme humko bahut acche se neend aati hai. Toh ye kuch techniques hai neend thik se aane ke liye, agar iske bawajood bhi aapki neend, ha aur ek cheez hai ki din mein thoda exercise kijiye, exercise generally 30 minutes to 45 minutes 5 days in a week karna chahiye, thoda body mein thakan rahega toh neend bhi aapko bahut acche se aapayegi.

Toh yeh saare tips mai aap ko dena chahta tha acchi neend ke liye uske alawa agar aapko jyada problem hai aur jyada information chahiye toh please mujhe contact kijiye lybrate.com se.

Thank you very much for your patient listening.

Hello friends,<br/><br/>I am Dr Vikas Deshmukh I am a psychiatrist and sexologist working in Vash...

Hello friends,

I am Dr Vikas Deshmukh I am a psychiatrist and sexologist working in Vashi, Navi Mumbai.

Aaj hum log discuss karne wale hain panic attacks and panic disorder yeh dono cheeze kya hai, aur dono ka difference kya hai, aur unka ilaj kaise kar sakte hain. Panic attacks hindi mai aap bol sakte hai unko bhay ke dorey, panic attacks ek aisi cheez hai ke achanak se out of the view jise bolte hain koi bina reason ke achanak se bahut jayada darr lagta hai ghabrahat hoti hai, hath-paon kampne lagte hain, chati mein dard hota hai, dhadkane tezz hoti hai aisa lagta hai ki abhi jaan chali jane wali hai, bahut kuch bura mere sath hone wala hai, heart attack aane wala hai ya brain stroke aane wala hai aur abhi mai bachunga nahi. Iss cheez ki sthiti jab hoti hai usme chakkar aane jaisa hota hai, ulti jaisa lag sakta hai, bechaini bahut lag sakti hai toh isko hum panic attack aisa bolte hain. Yeh attack ek se jyada baar agar ho ek mahine se jyada rahe aur hamesha iss cheez ka darr laga rehta hai ki mujhe kab attack aa jayega, kab attack hoga aur iski wajah se mera bahar jaana mushkil hone laga ho, toh isko bolte hain panic disorder. Mujhe mera ek patient abhi bhi yaad hai jo panic attack ki wajah se apne kaam pe nahi ja pata tha kyunki usko mumbai mein travelling rehta hi hai, toh usko hamesha darr laga rehta tha ki agar mujhe aisa attack train mein aaye, bus mein aaye toh mujhe bachayega kaun, phir usko kaam pe pahunchanee ke liye uski wife uske sath ek ghanta travel karke jati thi aur usko chod ke aati thi aur pick up karne ke liye wo wapas ek ghanta jati thi. Toh iss tarah se quality-of-life patient ka hamper ho gaya tha ki chodne ke liye aur saath mein hamesha uske koi na koi rehna chahiye tha, even kaam par jane ke liye bhi toh jab humne uska treatment kiya toh woh sahi se akela har jagah jaane laga apna kaam dhang se karne laga uska quality-of-life bhi bahut sudhar hua hai. Toh panic attack ki wajah se bahut sare problem patient hote hain unki ladies ko hote hain bahut baar patients jakerke hospital mein admit ho jate hain, sare ilaaj karate hain, sare janche karate hain ECG, 2D-Echo, cardiogram jise bolte hain isko ECG ko, dusra treadmill testing sare test karate hain, sare janche normal aane ke baad patient pareshan rehta hai ki aakhir kya hua hai ki mujhe samajh nahi aa raha hai ki nahi dekh raha hai kisi jaanch mein. Agar doctor aware raha toh doctor jaldi se psychiatrist ke pass refer karte hain yeh panic disorder treatment ke liye. Toh isme bahut sara paisa, bahut sara waqt aur bahut sari mehnat jaya jati hai bahut baar. To panic attack ka ilaj kya hai, panic attack ka ilaj doh tarike se ho sakta hai ek medicine se aur dusra behaviour therapy jisko bolte hain cognitive behavioural therapy, medicine mai doh tarike ke medicine rehte hain ek immediate relief dene wale aur ek long term mein jo attack prevent karte hain, baki attack nahi aaye isme kaam karne wale, jisko hum bolte hain Accessorize Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor. Aur cognitive behavioural therapy mein hum patient ko samjhte hain ki panic attack exactly kya hai, ki jaan ko khatra isse nahi hota hai aur aise agar attack aate hain toh aap kya kya kar sakte hain inse dur jane ke liye ya future main nahi aane ke liye. Toh panic attack ke baare mein satark rehna bahut zaroori hai aaj kal ke tanav ki zindagi me panic attacks bahut bade hain aur isme bilkul bhi darne jaisi baat nahi hai, isse jaan ka aapko khatra nahi hai.

Iske baare mein aur jayada information or jayada aapko discuss karna hai to mujhe aap contact kar sakte hain lybrate.com ke through.

Causes and Management for Premature Ejaculation!

Hello friends. I am Dr Vikas Deshmukh. I am neuropsychiatric and sexologist. Working in navaashi. Nawi Mumbai area. So today we are here to discuss the very important topic in our day to day life that is Premature Ejaculation. So what exactly premature ejaculation is? Simply premature ejaculation is early ejaculation, but scientifically according to the old concept it can be said as when your ejaculating time is within 1 or 1.5 minutes, it can be considered as a premature ejaculation. But according to recent changes, and recent science any ejaculation can be premature ejaculation when it does not satisfy you or your partner. So unsatisfactory ejaculation is called as premature ejaculation, okay. So what are the causes of premature ejaculation? Dominant causes are the anxiety of any, because of any reason. Second facidiety of pelvic floor muscles. Third hyper excitement during sexual activity. You are not able to control your excitement. So how you can manage your premature ejaculation. There are few tips I am going to give you on this premature ejaculation. I hope these are helpful to you. So one of the things is good foreplay. Most of them, most important cause that patient feel he is ejaculated prematurely because his partner is not satisfied and when you female partner is not satisfied you can increase, try to increase satisfaction level with help of good foreplay. Good foreplay excites her and using, by using, stimulating her, clitoris and vagina you can give her orgasm before inserting your penis in he. So the burden of satisfying her is decreased a little bit after using this technique. A good foreplay and stimulating her with her clitoris with your either manually or orally okay. So second thing is managing your anxieties. Try to find out your root cause of anxieties and try to manage those anxieties. If you are not able to find visit a therapist. He can help you to find out your anxieties. Where, weather it is occupational, whether it is financial problem or family problem or a sexually related problem. So he can also help you to manage your anxieties. Third thing is masturbation, masturbation is very helpful, during, like to increase your ejaculation time. When you masturbation regularly, it automatically increase your ejaculation time and especially when you masturbate just before one or two hour before sex, or one day before sex, your ejaculatinon can be increased, time can be increased dramatically. Third thing is a stop and start technique of master Johnson’s. so it is a very important technique. You can apply in a four phases. In stop and start technique, first you should know k where is your point of noredone. Jahan sy apko ejaculation rokna mushkil ho jata hai. To wo point k phly apko rokna hai ejaculation ko. To phly ap musterbate krty huwy kro. Q k hand is little bit hard than vagina. To us main ap jab musterbate karo gy to just wo jo the point of noredone any sy phly e apko stimulate krna rokna hai apny penis ko. Or us k bd apko thora sa apka excitement level ko cool down krna hai, cool off krna hai. Us k bd wapis apko same procedure repeat krna hai. Start stimulating your with the help of your hand or just noredone sy phly ap us ko relax kro to is sy kya hoga k apka time duration barhy ga. Aisy 3 cycles k bad ap 4th cycle main ejaculate karo. To 3 cycles ap just ejaculate nai kr rhy ho or 4th cycle main ap ejaculate kr rhy ho. So this is a practice you should apply every day, or twice or thrice a week. And similarly then gradually you can increase then, ap apny partner ko masturbate krny ko lagao. So with the help of increase stimulation also you can able to hold that ejaculation then, oral sex main agr ap try krna chahty ho to oral sex main ejaculation ko aisa kro gy k 3 bar rokna hai phr 4th bar ejaculate krna hai and finally in vaginal sex. To finally ap vaginal sex main ye use kr skty ho k andar dal k you will try to hold it before your end point. Okay. So ap gradual sensitivity barhaty huwy ye stop and start technique use kr skty ho. Third thing, medicines. There are very good medicines in the market that can increase your ejaculation time, but you should suppose to see your sexologist before taking it. Don’t take it over the counter. 4th things, there are many positions and many positons and many strokes, different strokes, different kind of strokes are there, that can increase your ejaculation time. In positions for example, one on the top position, okay. It is a very good position when your ejaculation time can be increase. Even in strokes, we know only strokes, only one stroke. Tis to and forth stroke. So there are many strokes like rounding up strokes, side by strokes, that can really increase your ejaculation time, so rounding up stroke is a good type of stroke jis main ap ka ejaculation time kafi had tk increase ho skta hai. 4th thing is many different kind of condoms are available over the counter and some anesthetic spray or gel are available but before taking these gels or spray please consult your doctors because these gels can really allergic for some person and for that expert opinion should be taken before doing this. Okay, last and the most important thing is kegel exercises. Kegel exercises are the exercises to strength your penvic muscle. You take so much care of your biceps, your triceps, your pelvic muscles, all of your muscles. But except the most important muscle of your body is pelvic muscle. Pelvic muscle is responsible for your proper Eraction is responsible for your increasing or deciding your ejaculation time. We never give time to strnghten our pelvic muscles. So these kegel exercises. These exercises are given on internet. I will advise you to consult a therapist for this proper exercise or proper guidance on it. I hope this video is helpful to you. And thank you very much for listening to me. And for contacting me, please logon to Lybrate.com

Thank you very much.

Peyronie's Disease - Natural & Herbal Treatment For It!

MBBS, M.D Psychiatry , Diploma In Psychological Medicine
Sexologist, Navi Mumbai
Peyronie's Disease - Natural & Herbal Treatment For It!

Peyronie’s disease is a disorder that occurs due to the development of fibrous scar tissue inside the penis, which usually causes injury to the penis. Men who have a penis which is severely bent are considered to have Peyronie’s disease. The men suffering from Peyronie’s disease may also experience painful erection which in turn may affect the sexual health and performance.

What causes Peyronie’s disease?
The exact cause of Peyronie’s disease is still unknown; however, it is believed that it may be a result of repetitive injury to the penis. People with family history of Peyronie’s disease are at a higher risk for developing the same. Aging is also believed to contribute to the development of the disease.

Symptoms of Peyronie’s disease
The symptoms of the Peyronie’s disease may appear gradually or suddenly and the main symptoms include the following:

  1. Erectile dysfunction
  2. Scar tissue
  3. Pain in the penis
  4. Shortening of the penis

The penile pain is felt by men without or with an erection. It takes about 1 to 2 years for the pain to reduce during erections, but the curvature remains. In very rare cases, the pain associated with the Peyronie’s disease and curvature improve without any treatment.

Effective natural herbal treatments for Peyronie’s disease

Castor oil: Apply castor oil on the penis, particularly on the scar tissue and the plaque spots. The oil liquefies and softens the hard tissues and works effectively for the sufferers. The remedy takes about 12 weeks for the improvement and to completely straighten the penis. The result may vary from individual to individual. Also, it may take between 2-3 weeks until you see a difference in the appearance of the penis. Ensure you buy castor oil from a good brand and massage a small amount of the oil on the affected area. Then put a cotton bandage on it. Apply the oil every night at bedtime for best results.

Acetyl-L-carnitine: One can use carnitine supplements as they are very effective and safe for treating Peyronie’s disease. You can purchase Acetyl-L-carnitine from health food stores. This has proven to be more effective than the counterparts available in the market. The dosage for the supplement is provided on the bottle. 

Gotu Kola: Use herbs like Gotu Kola as they help decrease the problems related to the formation of fibrous tissue below the skin. The herb is useful in the treatment of the curvature of the penis. It is made available in the form of an ointment, capsule, and tincture. Some of the common side-effects associated with the consumption of gotu kola include headache, dizziness, upset stomach, and nausea. This herb in some cases can also interact with certain diabetes and cholesterol-lowering medications. Therefore, it is always advised to consult a specialist before using gotu kola for the treatment of Peyronie’s disease.

The prevalence of Peyronie’s disease occurs in men over the age of 55.It is always better to see the doctor if the curvature of the penis stops you from having sex and causes a lot of pain. For a holistic treatment of your problem, consult here.

6 Ayurvedic Remedies To Increase Sexual Power!

Physical disorders which hamper your intimate life can prove to be an embarrassment when it disrupts intimacy between you and your partner. To alleviate such problems, modern treatment processes have developed rapidly over the last couple of years in order to provide the best results and that too, within a very short period of time.

However, these methods aren’t usually curative, but mostly provide symptomatic relief. Regular and constant medication is necessary in order to achieve best results. Needless to say, this is a time consuming, and resource-draining alternative when compared to Ayurvedic medicine.

If you are finding it difficult to perform and last longer in bed, you might want to consider Ayurvedic remedies since they aim at attacking the very root of the problem and accelerate recovery within no time! Ayurveda recommends a number of herbs to alleviate performance problems, and improve sexual activities:

  1. Ashvagandha is most commonly used for problems pertaining to sexual disorders. It lowers stress levels, develops the nervous system, and enhances the overall operation of the patient’s autonomic nervous system in order to trigger better sexual performance.
  2. Talmakhana is the herb employed for treating semen anomalies. It checks premature ejaculation, enhances circulation of blood to the genitals, and at the same time, improves the production of sperm.
  3. Shatavari stimulates sperm production naturally, boosting both the quantity as well as the quality of sperm found in the semen.
  4. Kaunch looks into the problem of premature ejaculation and is ideal for patients who eject thin, watery semen. The herb increases viscosity of the semen, with the result that the lifespan of sperms increase.
  5. Shilajit effectively corrects erectile dysfunction and improves the circulation of blood to the groin, thereby solving problems pertaining to erection. This is the most popularly used Ayurvedic remedy that enables men to last longer in bed and experience greater pleasure during intercourse.
  6. Along with the above, what is essentially remedial in this case is to maintain proper lifestyle, have a balanced diet, abstain from alcohol and drugs and exercise regularly. In addition to this, a few ‘asanas’ in Yoga, like the ‘bhujangasana’ and ‘paschimotasana’ ensure better circulation to the genital areas which in turn, help you last longer in bed!

Postpartum Depression Or Postnatal Depression

Hello Everyone!

My name is Dr. Aparna Deshmukh. I am a consultant psychiatrist sexologist. Today I will be talking on postpartum depression or postnatal depression. Postpartum depression is a mood disorder which is characterised by depressive symptoms in the period that follows childbirth in either of the parents. More commonly in mothers. It is important to know about postpartum depression because no.1 is common. About 15% of women suffer from postpartum depression in the postnatal period. Secondly, not only it is important from the point of view mother’s mental health but mother who suffers postpartum depression is unable to care for her infant effectively.

And it leads to profound effect, mental health and well-being of the child in the future too. And thirdly, in postpartum depression in its severe form which is postpartum psychosis, the mothers may have thoughts of harming their infants. And they may actually act upon this thought leading to actual harm to an infant and in some cases even death. So how do patients with postpartum depression presents. The postpartum depression onset is usually 2 weeks to 1 month after delivery or sometimes even miscarriage. Some professional even diagnose it after 1 year of child birth. Here the patient typically presents with behaviour and cognitive symptoms. The emotional symptoms include the patient saying that they are sad, sometimes they feel empty inside.

Some patients are irritable, and they get angry on trivial issues. On the other hands. Some patients become lethargic and complaint of low energy or loss of pleasure, loss of interest, loss of enthusiasm. And some patients become withdrawn, non-communicative. In different towards their infant. And in general, they have this fear and worry that they would not be able to care for their infant which leads to a feeling of inadequacy. And sometimes inappropriate guilt and sheen. Many patient’s complaints about a loss of concentration, poor memory that they are not able to take their decisions. The decision-making capacity has been reduced. Or they are unable to think clearly. Some have thoughts of hopelessness or helplessness. And even worklessness. And some patients in their severe illnesses may also have thoughts of humming themselves or even others.

The relatives might notice that the patient has either become withdrawn or non-communicative or they may feel that the patient is overwhelmed and anxious. They may notice that the patient is very lethargic. Or some patients, they sleep a lot. Mostly the whole day. And some patients do not sleep at all. So, sleep patterns may vary depending on the patient. Even the appetite changes are noticed in some patient. The severe form of postpartum depression that I was saying formally postpartum psychosis. Now in postpartum psychosis other than these symptoms, there is also presence of psychotic symptoms. These includes suspiciousness towards family member that they will harm them which leads to an agitative and aggressive behaviour of the patients. Sometimes the patient hallucinates i.e. the hear of voices that are inaudible to others. And the relatives may notice that the patient muttering to self, talking to self. Sometimes patient may also have excessive physical activities. Or they may talk excessively or there is the running of thoughts in their mind. So, these symptoms may also be the part of postpartum psychosis.

Another entity, that needs to be differentiated postpartum depression is postpartum blues or baby blues. Now this entity is more common. But fortunately, it is a milder form. And the depressive symptoms are milder. Patient may complaint of depressed mood, fluctuating moods, irritability, change in sleep and appetite pattern. But the good thing is that it is self-limiting. However, in some cases postpartum blues may progress to postpartum depression. So, how common is postpartum depression? Like I said 15% of women in their postnatal period suffer from postnatal depression. However, postpartum psychosis is rarer. Postpartum blues on the other hand much more common. Affecting 50-70% of the women in the postnatal period. What causes postnatal depression?

There are multiple factors: biological, psychological, social factors. Usually it is an interplay between these factors. Sometimes the combination of these factors that leads to postpartum depression. So, the hormonal changes that occur during and after pregnancy, the sleep deprivation, the emotional and physical stress of childbirth, the added responsibility of the child and poor social and family support can lead to postpartum depression. So, how do we treat postpartum depression? In mild cases, like psychotherapy like counseling helps but modern to severe cases the anti-depressants are the main stay of treatment. In postpartum psychosis. Antipsychotic medication is also prescribed. In severe cases, electroconvulsive therapy is also recommended.

Psychotherapy can be combining with the biological therapy. Mainly cognitive behavioral therapy and interpersonal therapy helps. Counseling and peer support group are also recommended. So, these were the some of the basic questions that I tried to answer about postpartum depression.
