Dear doctor it is true that after sex women should not pee for 3 hrs if they pee they will not get pregnant.

Dear doctor it is true that after sex women should not pee for 3 hrs if they pee they will not get pregnant.
The only logic is whike they sit for urination because of gravity the semen comes out and the sperm have to move much against the gravity... but there is no such fixed rules... If you are facind difficulties conceiving then after the intercourse put a pillow under her back and let her lie down for half an hour.

No its not necessary. It's actually a misconception that girls who doesn't bleed on their first time of intercourse are no longer virgins. It is okay not to bleed, most women don't. There are many reasons behind it, the cause of bleeding is the breaking of the hymen that is done through penetration. The hymen is a very thin and can be easily broken. Athletes commonly because of stretching and exercise breaks the hymen which means that they no longer will bleed while having sex. Not bleeding on your first time is not something to be scared about especially if you masturbate, we can already assume that you won't bleed. The definition of virginity is not yet able to experience sexual intercourse. If you haven't been penetrated by a male reproductive organ then you are still a virgin. And to bleed or not to bleed is no longer relevant. The other comments had already explain a lot. If you are not satisfied with the provided information you can just research about it.

Dear Lybrate User, It appears that your mother needs a few investigations. Please take her to a Generaly Physician first. The Doctor will examine her and then will suggest further tests (whatever is required). The Doctor will also prescribe required medicines and also may refer your mother to a Dermatologist or a Gyneacologist, or a Counsellor if required. Please take her to a General Doctor first.

With these oral hormonal tablets your body's natural hormonal level get disrupted and you get irregular bleeding at the same time there could be some retained products of conception left in the uterus which gives this type of bleeding so it is better for you to consult a gynaecologist and get checked onc to clear out everything.

Seems it is some kind of Vaginal Infection, take rest, maintain good Personal hygeine and drink lot of water, if it is delivery pain then none of these will help and your pain would increase, or else your pain will decline once the Infection gets over.

Not Having Sex - 5 Things That Can Happen to You!

Not Having Sex - 5 Things That Can Happen to You!

An important part of your adult life and a way of expressing your love, sex can be an effort when, both you and your partner do not feel up to it.

However when you completely put a stop to having sex, these 5 things can happen: 

  1. You feel more anxious: A study by a group of Scottish researchers reveals that when you go without sex for a long time, you are unable to cope with the pressures of life. Couples who had sex for at least once over a 14 day period were able to cope with stressful situations, the study revealed. During sex, your body releases chemicals like oxytocin and endorphins that leave you with happy feelings. When you abstain from it, you shut down an avenue to get rid of pent-up emotion or energy.
  2. It raises the possibility of prostate cancer in men: Research reveals that men who have sex regularly experience a 20% fall in their chances of developing prostate cancer. The reason is frequent episodes of ejaculation bring about the removal of harmful matter from the prostate gland.
  3. You become more prone to colds and flu: Less sex can affect your body's ability to fight off germs, making you prone to common colds and flu. A research by the Wilkes-Barre University shows that couples who have sex one or two times a week witness a 30% boost in the production of immunoglobulin A or IgA (an antibody that is the body's first line of defense against germs) compared to people who don't.  
  4. It increases the risk for erectile dysfunction (ED) in men: Findings published in the American Journal of Medicine highlight the fact that men who have sex less frequently are two times more likely to experience ED than men who have sex about once a week. According to the researchers of the study, frequent sex allows the penis to maintain its strength and effectiveness.
  5. A drop in Urinary Tract Infections (UTI) for women: One good thing comes out of not having sex. It is said that about 80% of UTI (Urinary Tract Infections) occurs within 24 hours of having sex. During intercourse, bacteria from the vagina get transported into the urethra, leading to the infection of the area. For women, the decision to not have sex can reduce the risk of developing this condition. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

I have symptoms of Chlamydia and should I take medicine for that without testing I have symptoms and I did not tested should I take the medicine.

Hello- NAAT is a molecular test that detects the genetic material (DNA) of Chlamydia trachomatis. It is generally more sensitive and specific than other chlamydia tests and can be performed on a vaginal swab on women, or urine from both men and women, which eliminates the need for a pelvic exam in women.

Yeast Infection - 5 Associated Causes

MBBS, MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Noida
Yeast Infection - 5 Associated Causes

Vaginal yeast infection occurs when too many yeast cells grow in the vagina, causing inflammation. It can spread by sexual contact but is not considered as a sexually transmitted infection. A yeast infection results in soreness or itching in the vagina with a burning sensation while urinating.

Causes of yeast infections in the vagina:
The vagina contains a balanced mix of yeast and bacteria; but if the balance is disrupted, it can lead to yeast infection. The reasons for overgrowth of yeast infections are:

  • If antibiotics are used more than usual, they can decrease the level of lactobacillus bacteria present in the vagina, changing the pH of vagina
  • Having high estrogen levels during pregnancy by using high dose birth control pills and hormone therapy can lead to the overgrowth of yeasts.
  • Having diabetes, especially when the blood sugar level is not checked and tends to be high
  • Having a weak or impaired immune system
  • Being overweight and having poor eating habits, including foods high in sugar level

Risk factors associated with the condition:
A number of factors can increase your risk of getting a vaginal yeast infection.

  • Using antibiotics heightens your risk of developing vaginal yeast infection as it disrupts the balance between yeast and bacteria. Excessive intake of antibiotics can kill healthy bacteria, leading to overgrowth of yeast organisms.
  • Having a weak immune system with conditions such as poorly controlled diabetes and HIV can lead to an overgrowth of yeast in the vagina. Corticosteroid medicines also weaken the immune system.
  • Wearing pants that are tight-fitting, nonabsorbent and undergarments that trap warmth and moisture
  • Having high estrogen levels due to an imbalance of hormone levels during pregnancy or menstrual cycle can also lead to vaginal yeast infection. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

If you are asking this question on behalf of your wife then the answer is sometimes benign lumps are noted in female breast which have pain and also grow in premenstrual period. Please see a surgeon for physical examination to rule out fibroadenosis or a tumor.

Tinospora cordifolia
(giloy, glo, guduchi)

Giloy satva or guduchi satva

It is a very common and economic but wonderful ayurvedic medicine, often neglected by well -to-do people because of mere low cost of the medicine.

It is obtained by extracting starchy content of indian tinospora plant by soaking in water for six to eight hrs, macerated and allowing starchy content to settle down and collected.

This powder has immense curing capabilities. People spend thousands of rupees by way of lab tests, antibiotics when pyrexia of unknown origin (puo) can't be treated. Similarly anaemia, jaundice, hyperacidity, polythrist etc are often take long time to recover. It is here that this wonderful gift of nature is very useful. It is a very fine immunity booster.

Nasal bleeding, menorrhagia, rectal bleeding, burning feet and hands can be cured very well with it as also it is useful in pthisis, emaciation and also lowers blood glucose levels.

Giloy satva when combined with chirayata satva (swertia chirata plant) cures toughest of fevers.

Both of above can be given independently or combined. By giving these with water boiled with holy basil leaves (tulasi) make it manifold effective.

Dosage:
Giloy satva - 1/2 gm to 1 gm
Chirayata satva - 1gm to 2 gm

There are many more uses of such simple things. Patients' attendants need little patience. These are non synthesised and non toxic naturals. Hence little slow. Can be given with any other medicine also. These do not counteract.

People should plant giloy and tulasi at common places in this rainy season so that everyone can benefit when needed. Can be grown in pots also.
