Your Belief in Porn Addiction Makes Things Worse...

Your Belief in Porn Addiction Makes Things Worse...

The label of “porn addict” causes depression but porn watching doesn't.

People who believe themselves to be porn addicts need help with understanding what their use of porn means, and why they may have problems around their sexuality. They deserve help unpacking the conflicts between their sexual desires, and the moral/religious society around them. They also need help to understand how and why porn use is not an addiction, and how viewing themselves as a porn addict may affect their self-image and emotional health. These men (and some women) deserve help in understanding their sexuality and their porn use. They don't need the shame and stigma that comes along with the "addiction" label.

Hello- bleeding just after sex might be due to perforation of your hymen. It will bleed in patches few days after sex also. Do not get confused this by your menses as your menses come on fixed days (if having a regular cycle)

Important to accept pregnancy as normal part of life and no need for extraordinary precautions if all normal (can be confirmed by obstetrician-gynaecologist). Just to mention few- 20 % more calories, balanced diet, routine excercises, activities, mental positivity and relaxation, proper sleep, using condoms, taking supplements of iron, calcium, vitamins, protein.

Thank you for your question. It appears from your description that you may have an infection. If you are sexually active this could be a sexually transmitted infection in which case both you and your partner will need examination and treatment. If you are not sexually active it is most likely to be a fungal infection. Both types need examination and treatment for you to get better. Please see a gynaecologist or a doctor specializing in Skin and DVD. Best wishes.

What is an irregular menstrual cycle? Having an irregular cycle means that the interval between periods varies each month. That is, sometimes they come every 28 days, sometimes every 20, sometimes every 30. Having irregular periods is very common. I see them in my practice all the time. The causes can range from something insignificant to something that requires treatment. For example, if you're a teen, your body's hormones can fluctuate and take some time until they find a balance. Therefore, it?s normal to have an irregular period during adolescence or, sometimes, for your period not to arrive in a given month. But, before we get down to business, remember that the main cause for your period not to arrive is a pregnancy. So, if your period doesn?t arrive, check to make sure it?s not actually a baby on the way. Now, let?s look at the most common causes of irregular periods: ? Eating disorders, like anorexia and bulimia ? Excessive weight gain or weight loss; extreme thinness and obesity both cause your menstrual cycle to become irregular or even to disappear ? Stress or emotional problems ? Hormonal problems, for example, when the thyroid malfunctions ? Travel ? Over-exercising: If you're an athlete and train very hard, you may stop menstruating because your body wants to survive and save energy and menstruation requires energy ? Problems with the pelvic organs (such as polycystic ovarian syndrome, for example) ? Drugs like birth-control pills can affect the frequency and / or intensity of menstruation ? Breastfeeding Aloe Vera Aloe vera helps treat menstrual irregularities naturally by regulating your hormones. 1. Extract fresh aloe vera gel from an aloe leaf. 2. Mix in one teaspoon of honey. 3. Consume it daily before having your breakfast. 4. Follow this remedy for about three months. Note: Do not use this remedy during your periods.

Causes and Symptoms of Vulvodynia

MICOG, MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Gurgaon
Causes and Symptoms of Vulvodynia

Vulvodynia is generally identified as a condition, which causes chronic back pain or vulvar pain, but having no identifiable cause. The causes as well as the nature of the condition are very obscure, and until recent times, it had never been considered to be an actual pain syndrome. What is commonly affected is the vulva, or the external female genital organs, consisting of the clitoris, labia and the vaginal opening.

Generally, there are two types of vulvodynia:

  1. Generalized Vulvodynia: this can mean pain in any part of the Vulva occurring erratically at different times
  2. Vulvar vestibulitis syndrome: this is limited to the vestibule, or the vaginal opening. It has similar characteristics of a burn, and pain can be incurred only when contact is made, say during sexual intercourse.

Symptoms
Although not life threatening, signs and symptoms of Vulvodynia can still cause a ton of problems for women. They can create much complication when it comes to daily activities as well as other feelings, like sexual frustration, agitation, depression and low self-esteem.

Symptoms can be very erratic and can occur once in a while or all the time. They may be limited to just one specific area or can affect the entire vulva, interfering with daily activities such as walking, exercising and sexual intercourse.

Here are some common signs and symptoms:

  1. A burning or stinging sensation
  2. An aching or throbbing sensation
  3. May swell and you may experience soreness;
  4. Severe itching and agitation

Causes
Because the causes are not identifiable, extensive research is still going on in order to decipher the nature of the syndrome. A few possible causes may include:

  1. Nerve irritation or injury
  2. Genetic abnormalities
  3. Muscle spasms
  4. Hormonal changes
  5. Abnormal responses to infections or traumatic injuries
  6. Hypersensitivity to yeast infections
  7. Allergies to certain chemicals or substances
  8. History of sexual abuse
  9. Frequent antibiotic use

After a cesarean section, it might feel impossible to get your body back into pre-baby shape. But take heart, a little dedication and patience goes a long way in getting your body back. While pregnancy itself takes a toll on your pelvic floor and abdominal muscles, c-sections cause even more stress to this area. Due to this, extra care and dedication is needed to rebuild and restore the belly. While it may take more work, it is not impossible to lose the post-c-section pooch. To Get Rid of a Belly Pouch From a C-Section: Drink plenty of water--Love to Know recommends at least 75 ounces of water per day for a 150-pound woman. Water is advantageous for c-section patients because it helps to reduce bloating by moving bloat-causing sodium through the body. Water also helps you to feel more full, which can reduce the tendency to overeat. If you had a c-section in the last six months, after your doctor's okay, begin with only one or two abdominal strengthening exercises before slowly building up to more. If it has been more than six months, begin abdominal strengthening at a beginner's level and progress slowly. Ensure you use proper form to help promote your healing and progress. Some women report that their abdomen feels differently afterwards, due to scar tissue and nerve damage. If this is you, it may take longer to find the ability to contract and utilize these areas of your abdomen. Do not do sit-ups, curl ups, or crunches until after your doctor has given you approval.

Navratri Special - How to Fast the Healthy Way?

Navratri Special - How to Fast the Healthy Way?

With Navratri around the corner, all women are stressed to look good and slim. Efforts to reduce weight and look slim and great during the festivities starts well in advance. However, there are two concerns around fasting and feasting. Feasting because there is a lot of energy required to enjoy the fun and celebrations associated with the Navratri festival. Fasting because it negates all the efforts you have put in to reduce weight. Let us look at some of the ways to fast during Navratri, which can also help you feast less and so not add back the lost kilos.

Different people follow different rules during this fasting and there is hardly anyone who does not eat anything at all. So, make sure you follow the below points to have a healthy and happy festival.

  1. Drink as much water as possible. Indulge yourself in skim milk, fresh fruit juices, and milkshakes as they provide the required nutrition and energy and also helps in flushing out toxins.
  2. Coconut water, lime juice, herbal teas can be consumed with no limits. Soups of pumpkin or bottle gourd are also healthy options.
  3. Staying on an empty stomach can lead to acidity, so eat dry fruits, seeds, and nuts every 2 to 3 hours as they will provide energy and help in controlling hunger pangs.
  4. Sabudana is allowed in most people’s fasting and is a great energy booster as it is a rich source of carbohydrates. So go for the healthier options of khichdi or kheer than the oily tikkis or papad.
  5. Yoghurt or raita is another refreshing item that can help you with energy
  6. Fruit flavoured yoghurt or curd can be a good substitute for kheer which is loaded with calories from sugar and milk.
  7. Milk is another healthy food to indulge in. Try skimmed milk instead of whole milk to reduce calories.
  8. Fruit salad sprinkled with rock salt boosts metabolism with all the natural sugars in it. The rock salt is rich in potassium and helps digestion and reduces acidity.
  9. New methods of cooking like baking, grilling or steaming should be adopted instead of the regular frying, it will help you control weight and stay fit.
  10. Try boiling potatoes, sweet potatoes, pumpkins and eat them with minimal spices like pepper and black salt.
  11. Paneer or cottage cheese is loaded with protein and calcium and can be used in many delicious dishes.
  12. Use a low-calorie sweetener instead of the regular sugar to keep away the calories.

Make sure you do not starve yourself, but find healthy, nutritious things to eat within the range of your permitted foods. This will help you enjoy the celebrations, which is the most important aspect of the festival. Having someone fast along with you helps you follow this routine better.

Recognizing The Symptoms Of A Gall Bladder Attack

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
General Physician, Delhi
Recognizing The Symptoms Of A Gall Bladder Attack

The gall bladder, which sits just below the rib cage to the right of the stomach, is very tender to touch. It is a little sac or storage compartment for bile, which is produced by the liver. The gallbladder emits bile into the small intestines via a duct referred to as the cystic duct. The entire process is meant to break down foods (namely fatty foods). 

Gallbladder attack symptoms may include one or more of the following: 

  1. Pain in the back right shoulder blade: Sometimes, pain radiates through to the back shoulder blade on the right side or in the middle between the shoulder blades. This is pain from the gallbladder affecting the back of the shoulder. This back shoulder blade chest pain is one of the most common yet unknown symptoms of a gallbladder disorder. This can come and go or be constant. It may be sharp, excruciating or dull. It may also occur especially at night. A gallbladder attack will typically last for one to four hours.
  2. Pain in the stomach: The most common symptom of a gallbladder problem is pain. This pain usually occurs in the mid to upper-right section of your abdomen. It can be mild and intermittent, or it can be quite severe and frequent. In some cases, the pain will begin to radiate to other areas of the body, including the back and chest.
  3. Nausea or Vomiting: Nausea and vomiting are common symptoms among all types of gallbladder problems. But only a chronic gallbladder disease may cause digestive problems, such as acid reflux, gas, nausea, and vomiting.
  4. Diarrhea: Having more than four bowel movements a day for at least three months may be a sign of chronic gallbladder disease.
  5. Fever or Chills: An unexplained fever may signal that you have a bile duct infection. If you have an infection, you need treatment before it worsens and becomes dangerous. The infection can become life-threatening if it's allowed to spread to other parts of the body.
  6. Unusual Stools or Urine:  Lighter-colored stools and dark urine are possible signs of a common bile duct block.
