Libido - 4 Ways To Increase It

Libido - 4 Ways To Increase It

Libido is a term that is used to describe the sexual desire for sexual activity. According to WHO, sexual health is a state of physical, mental and social well-being, which is why libido is one of the key factors to a sound and healthy life. As men have 40 times as much testosterone as women, they are thought to have a more intense sexual drive. Dopamine plays a strong role in libido and motivation. Physical issues like low testosterone, too much exercise, and alcohol can cause low libido. Psychological issues may include depression and stress in everyday life.

The good news is that libido can be increased through some simple measures, which are:
1. Have a positive outlook - 
Prolonged stress can diminish your interest in sex, and men and women have different reactions to stressful situations. Both partners need to discuss their stressful jobs each day and find a non-stressful time for sex. Besides, being self-confident and optimistic makes you feel more sexual and charming to your partner.
2. Following a proper balanced dietNatural supplements can increase your blood flow and help fight vaginal dryness. You can try the much-touted libido-boosting foods, known as aphrodisiacs. Figs, bananas, avocados, eggs, chocolate, and mangoes can help to increase libido. Foods rich in vitamin E, vitamin C, vitamin B complex, and zinc may help to boost sperm count, improve sperm motility and increase testosterone production in men.
3. Prepare for intimacy - If you are planning some quality time with your partner and hope to get him/her 'in the mood' you can try chocolate and coffee. Chocolate has been as the symbol of a desire not only for its delectable taste but because of its power to improve sexual desire. Coffee and chocolate both produce positive mood states, releasing endorphins, providing energy and increasing physical endurance. Wine, or any other form of alcoholic drink, consumed in a small amount, may help people to relax and get in the mood. However, caution must be maintained as excessive consumption can result in impotence in men.
4. Take time to meditate and relieve stress - Being stressed out can affect your sex drive. To relieve stress you can indulge in sports activities and exercises. Lifting the weight or doing resistance training exercises like pushups help to break down and rebuild muscles, creating a spike in testosterone production. For many couples, working out together can become a stimulating experience that gets them in the mood. Exercises can increase performance, range of motion, endurance, boost confidence and help you look younger and more attractive. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Sexologist.

Breast Cancer in Hindi - स्तन कैंसर

MBBS, M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Delhi
Breast Cancer in Hindi - स्तन कैंसर

स्तन विभिन्न ऊतकों से बना है, बहुत फैटी ऊतक से लेकर घने ऊतक तक। इस ऊतक के भीतर लोब का एक नेटवर्क है। प्रत्येक लोब छोटे, ट्यूब जैसी संरचनाओं से बना होता है, जिन्हें लोब्यूल्स कहा जाता है, तथा जिसमें दूध ग्रंथियां होती हैं। छोटी नलिकाएं ग्रंथियों, लोब्यूल्स और लोब को जोड़, लोब से निपल तक दूध ले जाती हैं। स्तन कैंसर तब शुरू होता है, जब स्तन में कोशिकाएं नियंत्रण से बाहर निकलने लगती हैं। कोशिकाओं का एक द्रव्यमान या एक चादर बन जाता है, जिसे ट्यूमर कहा जाता है। स्तन कैंसर आम तौर पर दुग्ध नलिकाओं की आंतरिक परत में या उन्हें दूध की आपूर्ति करने वाले लोबूल में शुरू होता है। ट्यूमर घातक है यदि कोशिकाएं ऊतकों के आस-पास (आक्रमण) में बढ़ सकती हैं, या शरीर के दूर के क्षेत्रों में फैल सकती हैं (मेटास्टासिस)। 

स्तन कैंसर के प्रकार
स्तन कैंसर स्तन के विभिन्न भागों से शुरू हो सकता है। स्तन कैंसर आक्रामक या गैर - आक्रामक हो सकता है। आक्रामक स्तन कैंसर आसपास के ऊतकों में फैल सकता है। 

  1. डक्टल कार्सिनोमा इन सीटू: नॉन - इनवेसिव स्तन कैंसर के सबसे आम प्रकार डक्टल कार्सिनोमा इन सीटू है। ये कैंसर दूध के नलिकाओं के अस्तर की कोशिकाओं में शुरू होता है और फैलता नहीं है। 
  2. इनवेसिव डक्टल कार्सिनोमा: यह कैंसर स्तन के एक नलिका से शुरू होता है और आसपास के ऊतकों में बढ़ता है। यह स्तन कैंसर का सबसे आम रूप है लगभग 80% इनवेसिव स्तन कैंसर आक्रामक डक्टल कार्सिनोमा हैं। 
  3. इनवेसिव लॉब्युलर कार्सिनोमा: यह स्तन कैंसर दूध के ग्रंथियों में शुरू होता है, जो दूध का उत्पादन करती हैं। 
  4. म्यूसीनस कार्सिनोमा: म्यूसीनस कार्सिनोमा का गठन बलगम उत्पन्न करने वाली कैंसर कोशिकाओं से होता है। मिश्रित ट्यूमर में कई प्रकार की कोशिकाएं होती हैं। 
  5. मेडयुलरी कार्सिनोमा: मेडयुलरी कार्सिनोमा एक इनवेसिव स्तन कैंसर, जो कि कैंसर और गैर - कैंसर ऊतक के बीच अच्छी तरह से परिभाषित सीमाओं के साथ प्रस्तुत करता है। 
  6. सूजनग्रस्त स्तन कैंसर: यह कैंसर स्तन की त्वचा को लाल और गर्म महसूस करता है (एक संक्रमण की तरह)। ये परिवर्तन कैंसर कोशिकाओं द्वारा लिम्फ वाहिनी के रुकावट के कारण होते हैं।
  7. ट्रिपल-नेगेटिव स्तन कैंसर: यह इनवेसिव कैंसर का एक उपप्रकार है, जो उन कोशिकाओं में पाया जाता है, जिनमें एस्ट्रोजेन और प्रोजेस्टेरोन रिसेप्टर्स की कमी होती है और उनकी सतह पर अतिरिक्त प्रोटीन (एच.ईई.आर 2) नहीं होता है। निप्पल के पैगेट रोग: यह कैंसर स्तन की नलिकाएं में शुरू होता है, और निप्पल और आसपास के क्षेत्र में फैलता है। यह निपल के चारों ओर क्रस्टिंग और लाली का कारण बनता है। 
  8. एडेनोइड सिस्टिक कैसिनोमा: ये कैंसर ग्रंथ्युलर और सिस्टिक फीचर्स दोनों रखते हैं। ये आक्रामक नहीं हैं।

उपर्युक्त वर्णों के अलावा अन्य असामान्य प्रकार के स्तन कैंसर का अनुसरण कर रहे हैं:

  1. पैपिलरी कार्सिनोमा 
  2. फाइलोड्स ट्यूमर
  3. वाहिकासार्कोमा
  4. ट्यूबलर कार्सिनोमा

स्तन कैंसर का जोखिम

  1. स्तन कैंसर के कई जोखिम वाले कारक हैं। स्तन कैंसर के कुछ जोखिम कारकों को संशोधित किया जा सकता है, जबकि अन्य का विरोध नहीं हो सकता। कई अनिर्णायक जोखिम कारक भी हैं। स्तन कैंसर के लिए निम्नलिखित जोखिम कारक हैं:
  2. आयु: स्तन कैंसर की संभावना उम्र के साथ बढ़ जाती है।
  3. पारिवारिक इतिहास: स्तन कैंसर का खतरा महिलाओं के बीच अधिक होता है। बीमारी (बहन, मां, बेटी) के करीबी रिश्तेदार होने से भी इसका अधिक जोखिम होता है।
  4. व्यक्तिगत इतिहास: एक स्तन में स्तन कैंसर का निदान होने से दूसरे स्तन में कैंसर का खतरा बढ़ जाता है या मूल स्तन में अतिरिक्त कैंसर की संभावना बढ़ जाती है। 
  5. माहवारी: जो महिलाएं एक छोटी उम्र (12 से पहले) में अपने मासिक धर्म चक्र शुरू करती हैं, या रजोनिवृत्ति में देरी (55 के बाद) कर लेती हैं, उनको थोड़ा अधिक जोखिम होता है।
  6. स्तन ऊतक: घने स्तन ऊतक वाली महिलाओं (मेमोग्राम द्वारा प्रलेखित) में स्तन कैंसर का खतरा अधिक होता है।
  7. अतिरिक्त वजन या मोटापे से भी स्तन कैंसर का खतरा बढ़ जाता है।
  8. रजोनिवृत्ति के बाद संयुक्त हार्मोन थेरेपी का प्रयोग भी स्तन कैंसर का खतरा बढ़ाता है।
  9. युवावस्था में विकिरण को आयनित करने का जोखिम एक महिला के स्तन कैंसर का खतरा बढ़ सकता है। 

स्तन कैंसर का निदान
नियमित रूप से स्तन कैंसर की जांच के बाद और कुछ लक्षणों और संकेतों को देख, उनके बारे में अपने डॉक्टर से परमर्श करने पर महिलाओं का स्तन कैंसर का निदान होता है।
नीचे स्तन कैंसर के लिए नैदानिक परीक्षण और प्रक्रियाओं के उदाहरण दिए गए हैं:

1. स्तन परीक्षण:
चिकित्सक, रोगी के दोनों स्तनों की जांच करता है, गांठों और अन्य संभावित असामान्यताओं, जैसे कि उलटे निपल्स, निप्पल निर्वहन, या स्तन आकार में परिवर्तन के लिए देखता है।
2. एक्स-रे (मैमोग्राम):
मेम्मोग्राम स्तन का एक्सरे है, जो स्तन कैंसर के संकेत के लिए दिखता है। 
3. स्तन अल्ट्रासाउंड:
इस प्रकार का स्कैन डॉक्टरों को यह तय करने में मदद कर सकता है कि एक गांठ या असामान्यता एक ठोस द्रव्यमान है या तरल पदार्थ से भरी हुई पुटी है।
4. बायोप्सी:
एक स्पष्ट अपसामान्यता से टिशू का एक नमूना, जैसे एक गांठ, को शल्यचिकित्सा हटा दिया जाता है और विश्लेषण के लिए प्रयोगशाला में भेजा जाता है।
5. स्तन एमआरआई स्कैन:
एक स्तन एमआरआई मुख्य रूप से उन महिलाओं के लिए प्रयोग किया जाता है, जिन्का स्तन कैंसर का निदान किया गया है, कैंसर के आकार को मापने के लिए, स्तन में अन्य ट्यूमर की तलाश के लिए, और विपरीत स्तनों में ट्यूमर की जांच के लिए। स्तन कैंसर के लिए उच्च जोखिम वाले कुछ महिलाओं के लिए, एक वार्षिक मेमोग्राम के साथ एक स्क्रीनिंग एमआरआई की सिफारिश की जाती है।

My lmp is 1 April, my pregnancy is of 8 and half month. My afi level is 6.80.wat should I do to increase it upto 10.
Oligohydramnios is the condition of having too little amniotic fluid. About 8% of pregnant women can have low levels of amniotic fluid, with about 4% being diagnosed with oligohydramnios. It can occur at any time during pregnancy, but it is most common during the last trimester. Method 2 Increasing Amniotic Fluid with Home Management Drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of water each day. Eat fruits that have water contents. Avoid herbal supplements that can dehydrate you. Stay away from alcohol. Do light exercise regularly if your doctor has not asked you to get bed rest. More items. If you are not yet in full term, your doctor will monitor you and your levels very closely. Tests such as non-stress and contraction stress tests may be done to monitor your baby’s activity. Your doctor may also suggest one of the following medical treatments listed in this method. If you are close to full term, your doctor may recommend that you deliver your baby via cesarean section as low amniotic fluid levels right before pregnancy can be dangerous for both you and your baby.

This white discharge is called leucorrhoea. It may occur naturally due to hormonal changes during each menstrual cycle which does not need treatment. Sometimes however it may be a sign of vaginal inflammation or infection due to viruses or other organisms. In such cases it is prudent to treat the cause. Homeopathy offers one of the best solutions to tackle leucorrhoea.

I am 20. 5 years F. For some reason, I feel very insecure while using condom. I always fear it may fail and when we come to know about it, it's generally very late. I wanted to know about oral contraceptive pills like unwanted 21 days that are available in the market. How safe are they and how effective, especially around 12th to 19th day of cycle when there is high chance of pregnancy. What are the side effects? Do they cause any complications in pregnancy later when I want to get pregnant? I plan to use them for like 3 times a year with regular gaps.

Dear Anup, Condoms are safer and helps to avoid pregnancy and sexual transmitted diseases. But the risk is always there due to rupture or slippage of condom and quality of condom and the way sexual activity is being carried out. For any pills or advice please consult. All the best.

Gynaecomastia

It is nothing to feel embarrassed and ashamed having gynecomastia. It is caused due to several reasons such as hormonal imbalance, prescription of illegal drugs or excess of fat in the body.
Gynaecomastia/ pseudogynaecomastia surgery by laser liposuction and laser gland removal without scar in the chest.

Affects an estimated 40 to 60 percent of indian men. For men who feel self-conscious about their appearance, male breast-reduction surgery can help. The procedure removes fat and or glandular tissue from the breasts, and in extreme cases removes excess skin, resulting in a chest that is flatter, firmer and better contoured.

Dear user. ABORTIONS can be performed as early as an intra-uterine pregnancy can be identified by ultrasound, which is usually about 3-4 weeks after your Last Menstrual Period (LMP). In the first trimester, two options are available: Aspiration is done by a physician in the clinic or the Abortion Pill which you take at home. Do not take any decisions before consulting your gynecologist. Take care.

Hypothyroidism and Pregnancy - What You Need to Know?

Hypothyroidism and Pregnancy - What You Need to Know?

The thyroid gland within the body plays an important role in regulating your metabolism among many other functions. This is a butterfly-shaped gland located in your neck and plays an important role within your body. However, a common condition that may afflict it is hypothyroidism or an underactive thyroid gland. It is even more of a problem if you are pregnant as it may affect your baby’s development in the womb. It has also been noticed that pregnancy in itself may cause hypothyroidism.

Symptoms of Hypothyroidism-

Pregnant women may also exhibit symptoms common to other patients who are suffering from hypothyroidism. These may include:

  1. Fatigue along with lethargy.

  2. Mild to significant weight gain.

  3. Constipation.

  4. Feeling cold with severe chills

The thyroid gland produces the T4 hormone responsible for regulating many mechanisms within the body such as metabolism. With hypothyroidism, the production of this hormone decreases or stops altogether. This is important as disruption in the production of the hormone may disrupt the normal development of your baby.

Effects of Hypothyroidism on your baby-

Hypothyroidism during pregnancy can affect your child’s developmental abilities. Many studies in this field have shown that such children tend to have learning difficulties and may even display lower IQ scores during tests. It was noticed that sometimes, hypothyroidism during pregnancy wasn’t diagnosed correctly as the pregnant mother did not show much apparent symptoms. This is also a major issue in the early diagnosis of the problem. Hence, it is absolutely imperative to test for thyroid problems early during pregnancy.

Prevention is the Best Cure-

It is thus very important that mothers be screened properly for thyroid issues even before they are pregnant and while they are pregnant. Some of the medically recommended steps that should be taken are –

  1. Screening before pregnancy as this can help to devise a solution for this condition.

  2. Women with goiter or enlarged thyroid should most certainly be screened.

  3. Women with a family history of hypothyroidism should be screened.

Treatments for Hypothyroidism During Pregnancy-

The doctors may suggest thyroid hormone replacement therapy wherein artificial T4 hormone is introduced into the body. This helps to maintain a constant rate of the thyroid hormone within the body. This can be done even before pregnancy as the developing fetus is completely dependent on the mother for its thyroid hormone until at least 12 weeks when the baby’s body can start producing it on its own. Also, the levels of this hormone should be regularly checked within the body through the TSH or the thyroid stimulating hormone tests to ensure that the levels are at a safe minimum. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.
