DPM, Msc Psychiatry, MBBS, Mental health training DMHP Nimhans Echo
Psychiatrist, Muzaffarpur
Cognitive behaviour therapy works better in OCD, anxiety disorder and depression , but it may take long time to cure unless it is combined with some medications. CBT is a form of psychotherapy and if combined with pharmacotherapy it works best.

5 Things Stress Does To Your Love Life!

Ph. D - Psychology
Psychologist, Delhi
5 Things Stress Does To Your Love Life!

Stress affects every part of your life including your love life. If you’re feeling too overwhelmed and tense, chances are that you’re libido and appearance will suffer. Studies have shown that being stressed increases the production of cortisol in the body, which makes you less appealing to members of the other sex.

Stressful life circumstances such as not enough money to pay the bills, family members with health problems or figuring out who will do what of the too-much work of running a home clearly can create stress in relationships. At the same time, how a couple talks over these stressful problems either reduces or magnifies the tensions caused by the initial problem. Marriage arguments are the last thing you need when you're already trying to deal with a tough situation.  

Take a look at five ways stress can affect your love life.

  1. It changes your perception of the relationship: Being under stress makes you irritable and snappy. Relationships exposed to high levels of stress most often turn negative with time. This is because stress alters our perception of reality and understanding of people. When you’re stressed, you tend to focus more on what’s wrong with the relationship than what’s right. This can lead to an increase in conflicts between partners.
  2. It lowers your confidence: For any relationship to work, you must first love yourself. Stress causes self-doubt and lowers your self-confidence. If you’re looking to start a relationship, this can increase your inhibitions in talking to new people or going on a date. If you’re already in a relationship, this lowered self-confidence can lead to problems in bed.
  3. It affects your appearance: Stress affects not only your emotional and mental frame of mind but your physical state as well. Being under stress to perform can result in binge eating and make you put on weight. Stress itself increases the production of cortisol in the body which in turn makes the skin secrete more oil. Stress can also cause brittle nails and hair loss. Stress also lowers your energy levels and makes you withdraw from social life.
  4. It lowers your sex drive: Stress makes it difficult to focus on anything other than whatever is troubling you. It has a direct connection to your libido; the higher the stress, the lower your libido. For men this can lead to erectile dysfunctioning while for women it can reduce the amount of natural lubrication produced and make sex uncomfortable.
  5. It can suppress fertility: Cortisol can also prevent women from ovulating. This can lower your chances of conceiving a child. this is noticed especially in cases of sudden spikes in stress levels and varies from woman to woman. It can also cause fertility problems in men.

The good news is that stress can easily be managed to improve your love life. Meditating and exercising are two effective stress busters that can enhance your love life. Doing this along with your partner not only helps reduce stress but can also bring you closer. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychologist.

Love does not bloom in the shadow of fear, possessive ness, control and expectations. This should ring bells in your ears about time to come. Tips of love making if any will help you only for a while. You should make him understand that trust and not demand in relationships is necessary. Seek a help of a counselor.

Hi doc I am 19/male. I have a problem with voice. Whenever I speak to someone over the phone or in person, people always say" can you please repeat it" I wanna know exercise/ yoga to make my voice louder and clearer.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Breathe deeply and exhale on a hisssssssing sound. Repeat 10 times. Proper breathing is the foundation for a healthy voice AND control over nervous energy that can make the voice quiver. Say “Mm-mmm (as in yummy) Mmm-hmm (like yes) ” Repeat 5 times. This develops mask resonance, which creates a clean and vibrant sound by creating a clean approximation of the cords and a resonance that will sound great and project easily. Say “Mm-mmm. Mmm-hmm.” up and down your vocal range, from low to middle to high and back again, 10 times.

Hii. My son is seven years old. He doesn't speak fluently. He stammers a bit. Do I need to consult to a doctor for removing his stammering or should I wait for him growing up, so that his stammering goes away with his age? Please advise.

M.S. Counselling and Psychotherapy
Psychologist, Bangalore
Your son is 7 now. Do not wait anymore. Stammering does not go away with age. Please consult a paediatritian. He will check your son physically and see if there is physical deformity which is causing this problem. Once he rules out physical ailment, you may consult a speech therapist. Also, please try to boost his confidence. Do not shame him for his mistakes or inabilities. Appreciate his sincere efforts in each field. Children may stammer under stress or when they feel that they are inadequate and are being judged by the elders.

My friend suffering from weight loss. He smoke min 3 cigarettes a day. Is smoking is reason for weight loss.
Smoking cessation can lead to weight gain due to increased appetite. it may be causing weight loss though there may be other factors involved. Find out what is the cause of smoking & try to counsel him to quit it not just because its bad for his health but also as it affects people around him (including loved ones) and reduces his years of life. Additionally the amount spent on cigarettes if saved, can be used for much better purposes. If required you may take professional help for your friend.

Dear, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Smoking can affect your mouth, throat, lungs, heart, stomach and brain in many ways. Cancer is one among the potential diseases smoking can cause. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. Nicotine chewing gums too help as an alternative for cigarettes. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advice. You can also opt for online deaddiction therapy. Take care.

Hi I am 24 year girl from last few months am feeling alone, neglected by everyone. Its like nobody needs me. My boyfriend ignoring me, if I am doing anything good for my family members they pretend like it was not good effort. Recently I got fired from my company just because of my angerness I really dont know what should I do I feel like no body can understnad me I dont know why always people shows that I am the one who will never right decision in life. Please help

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
That can be very difficult for you if you feel that nobody is needing you. But if you are doing something good, then why are you letting their description of you affect you. Stay connected with how you define yourself rather than how the world defines you. The world will always have an opinion on everything. So will you let it affect you all the time? yet, let me point out that showing anger is counterproductive especially if it' s out of context and out of place. People see it as anti social and unproductive behaviour. At the workplace, you need to be careful of showing your anger. Do learn healthy ways to express your anger. This can be learnt in counselling with anger management sessions. As far as the boy friend goes, if he' s ignoring you, then are you making yourself available all the time and he' s taking you for granted or are you throwing your weight around and controlling him? what I am trying to say here is that if he' s behaving in that manner, then what are you doing to bring this behaviour out from him. You need to be self aware and be empathetic to other people' s needs as well as your needs. All this can happen in counselling, which will help you to control anger, gain self confidence and control over self expression along with a boost in self esteem.

Anti depressant medication should be continued for at least one year. Due to depression there occur some chemical changes in brain. Antidepressant medications may reverse this change, which may take many months. After about a year of stablization if there was none relapse of illness, medicines may be gradually tapered before stopping it. So, my advise is to continue medicine as advised.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. This scenario is not happening to you alone. Every adolescent is facing the same problem. The problem is due to your brains functional overtures. Your brain becomes so vibrant and creative at this period, it can't concentrate on simple tasks. Therefore you need to be more creative while learning and reading or writing. I suggest you understand and practice effective learning methods. Take care.
