This World AIDS Day - Let's Spread the Awareness About HIV/AIDS

This World AIDS Day - Let's Spread the Awareness About HIV/AIDS

What is Monogamous Relationship?

You (who have been tested for STD/STIs and don't have any) are having sex with only one partner (who also has been tested for STD/STIs and doesn't have any) who only has sex with you. And you both keep it that way! 

Stated another way, you are both STD/STI free and only have sex with each other. People of any sexual orientation can engage in monogamous relationships. The only thing implied by the term monogamy is that the relationship consists of two people who are romantically and/or sexually exclusive. Theoretically, outside of abstinence, this is really the safest type of "safer sex" that you can have. 

Celebrated on 1st December of each year, World AIDS Day, aims to spread awareness about HIV / AIDs. It is an STD wherein, HIV stands for human immunodeficiency infection and AIDS stands for acquired immune deficiency syndrome. The disease hinders the immune system in keeping up our body’s security against sickness. HIV causes individuals to end up wiped out with infections that regularly would not affect them and HIV leads to AIDS.

Understanding the Symptoms:

HIV has few or no signs or symptoms for up to ten years or more before side effects of AIDS tends to manifest. There is no cure for HIV/AIDS, yet treatment is accessible. A few people have HIV symptoms not long after being infected. These include:

  1. There are a few phases of HIV illness. The primary HIV side effects may include swollen glands in the throat, armpit, or crotch.
  2. Other early HIV symptoms incorporate slight fever, headaches, exhaustion, and muscle throbs.
  3. These symptoms may keep on going for just a couple of weeks. At that point, there are typically no HIV indications for a long time. That is the reason it can be difficult to know whether or not a person is suffering from HIV.

The symptoms of AIDS show up in the most advanced phase of the HIV disease. These are as follows:

  1. Along with a severely damaged immune system, a person with AIDS may likewise have thrush. A thrush is a thick, whitish covering on the tongue that is brought about by a yeast infection and now and then joined by a sore throat.
  2. Serious or repetitive vaginal yeast infection.
  3. Pelvic inflammatory illness.
  4. Serious and frequent infections.
  5. Unexplained fatigue that might be followed by headaches, dizziness.
  6. Loss of more than ten pounds of weight that is not because of physical exercise or consuming fewer calories.

Risk Factors: There are a lot of ways in which you can get the infection. HIV is transmitted through blood, semen, vaginal fluids and breast milk. The most well-known ways in which HIV is spread, are:

  1. Having sexual intercourse without a condom with somebody who has HIV/AIDS.
  2. Using needles or syringes that have been used by someone who has HIV/AIDS.
  3. Being punctured with a needle or surgical instrument that has been contaminated with HIV.
  4. Getting HIV blood, semen or vaginal discharge into open injuries or wounds.
  5. Babies born to women with HIV/AIDS can get HIV from their mothers during birth or from breastfeeding.

There are numerous ways in which you can protect yourself from HIV. These are as follows:

  1. The most secure way is to limit the number of sexual partners you take on.
  2. Try to have safer sex and always use protection.
  3. Get your partners tested for HIV.
  4. HIV tests are a typical piece of social insurance.

In case that you think you may have been infected by HIV, talk to a specialist or a doctor about testing. Discussing what risks you might have taken can help you choose whether testing is ideal for you. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Recheck your urine for pregnancy test. Missed period dosen't alwyz means your pregnant. It may happen due to hormonal imbalance. Thyroid,prolactin hormone etc. Wait until your next period if that also irregular or you miss consult with a gynaecologist.

My wife is 4 months pregnant. She still feels vomiting at night most of time. She burps so much.
If the vomitings are still persisting please ask her to take smaller meals at more frequent intervals also her food should not be fried and spicy she should eat more fresh vegetables and fruit. Her dinner should be at least two hrs before sleeping. I am sure these measures will help her.

I understand your concern... Single use of I pill do not affect the future pregnancy. I pill is actually high dose progesterone. Effect of it will last only for a month. But repeated use may cause menstrual irregularity and indirectly may affect the ovulation. There is no definitive study to prove its effect on future pregnancy.. So use an alternative contraceptive measure instead of repeated use of the pill.

Advise is ask her and her husband together to consult doctor. We need to take some history from both, check both of them and advise few tests to detect the cause, Then we will start treatment of that cause.

Hello- The Indian traditions of Elder bride and younger groom is very much supported by modern findings that a girl reaches its puberty (youth) two years earlier thn the boys of same age, so a girl also will face menopause (get old) earlier thn the boy of same age. This is the reason why a girl is searched of less age thn the boy. However if you are in love it all does not matter as you can delay aging (of both you and your partner's) by the use of Rasayana medicines of ayurveda.

Guess Which Fruit Is Your Best Friend This Summer

Guess Which Fruit Is Your Best Friend This Summer
4 reasons as to why you need to make watermelon your companion this season

Here are the 4 reasons as to why you need to make watermelon your companion this season:
1) A well of water - With around 92% of water trapped in that green melon ball, one can never be thirsty or dehydrated when consuming watermelon. It is a perfect source of hydration. Watermelon is full of good electrolytes, and these electrolytes can help you prevent heat strokes in summers.

2) An all-rounder - Watermelon is a hydrator, a fruit and a vegetable. Yes, you read that right. Watermelon is a fruit as well as a vegetable. It can be traced back to the cucumber family known as Cucurbitaceae. Not to forget the rind, this can be consumed as well.

3) The Multi-tasking Rind - Don’t we love a multi-tasker? Well, the watermelon rind is one of them. The watermelon rind contains citrulline which makes arginine, an amino acid, which is responsible for making proteins which lead to relaxation of blood vessels. The citrulline also leads to less muscle fatigue which therefore allows you to extend your workout sessions. And with only 1.8 calories in 1 inch cube of watermelon rind, it is a must to make some place for it, in your diet or daily meals.

4. The fertility seeds - Watermelon seeds contain more lycopene than raw tomatoes. This matters because lycopene acts as an antioxidant which stops the free radicals from making any damage to cells and immune system. Lycopene is not only good for your face but also helps in improving male fertility.

Take Away - Who says, money cannot buy health? You can buy a watermelon! So, when are you buying health? And making it your companion this season!

It depends upon lactation. Some women do get pregnant while lactating and gap between 2 kids is 9 months plus. Get an intrauterine device fitted after ruling out pregnancy by urine test which can be deceptively positive during 40 days of post partum period reflected by previous pregnancy ultrasound can be more reassuring about no pregnancy why I am suggesting above is that some women do continue with the baby while intrauterine device fitted is intact and inplace oral. Pills are secreted through milk. Don't take pills don't depend upon local methods as failure rate is high.

Ghabrahat can be because of various causes it's not necessary that you are having a low blood pressure but having a constant blood pressure below 90/60 is considered low so if you are having low blood pressure first thing which you should check is your hormonal imbalance so go and check for thyroid function test and keep a blood pressure record to check if its slow most of the times then you need to consult a doctor.

I always get cramps in my stomach during periods. Is there any permanent solution to it? Because it is unbearable?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
I always get cramps in my stomach during periods. Is there any permanent solution to it? Because it is unbearable?
Hello. We can minimize the pain during menses with diet and medicines (which are safe to take).. Diet: - Calcium is a mineral associated with building healthy bones and teeth. However, it may have some applications in minimizing the harmful effects of menstrual cramping. So,increase your intake by eating low-fat dairy products such as milk, yogurt and cheese or green leafy vegetables. - Your body uses vitamin B-6 to manufacture new red blood cells. When you lose red blood cells via menorrhagia, your body will need more to build new cells. Also, vitamin B-6 is required for your blood sugar to stay at healthy levels. This can help prevent menstrual cramping-related mood swings and fatigue. Vitamin B-6 is found in fortified cereals, bananas, spinach, sunflower seeds, avocados, tomato juice and salmon. - Just as foods can help reduce the symptoms of menstrual cramping and bleeding, foods can aggravate your symptoms. This includes eating excessive amounts of sugar -- such as cakes, cookies and pies. These are known to contribute to water retention, which make you feel bloated and uncomfortable. High-salt content foods -- french fries, pizza and other fried foods --- can also contribute to bloating. Caffeine-containing beverages like tea and coffee should be avoided as they can contribute to headaches, mood swings and trouble sleeping. - If you're craving chocolate, make sure it's over 70 per cent cocoa. This bittersweet treat will help you relax your muscles. - We all know fluids are essential when your body is cramping or bloating. Drinking two to three litres of water during your period is essential. - Tea is an easy way to replace your caffeine craving. Green tea to soothe cramps. now, even though green tea contains caffeine, try decaffeinated green tea instead — but be aware, you may lose some health benefits with a decaf version. Caffeine is another no-no. Drinking lots of coffee or pop during your period can increase higher levels of tension and anxiety. - Avoid anything that can damage your liver should be off the list. So, avoid alcohol. - Red meat, Smart says, is also know to cause stomach upsets and cramps. Medication: Start taking homoeopathic medicines - Mag. Phos. 6x and Colocynthis 200 - every 2 hrly. during the time of menses. And take Five Phos. and Alfaalfa Tonic - thrice daily for 1 month. Revert me back.
