Non Consummation of Marriage (Married, Yet Unmarried)

MD, BHMS
Sexologist, Mumbai
Non Consummation of Marriage (Married, Yet Unmarried)

A marriage can go stale due to several reasons. If you blindly believe in the maxim" marriages are made in heaven" you are still living inside a bubble. The gamut of difficulties faced in making a marriage work can leave newlyweds in complete awe. A marriage doesn't tiptoe on a tightrope between success and failure; it is more of a road taken towards happiness.

If your marriage doesn't fill you with contentment or you can sense the lack of bliss with your partner there are reasons to worry. Apart from the regular tiffs and grave contradictions, a married couple could also bicker or part ways due to the nonconsummation of their marriage. At times only one person has to experience the toll of little sexual intimacy while at other times, both individuals suffer from its absence.

A newly wed couple fails to have sex for 3 main reasons

1. Man's problem: erectile dysfunction (failure to get or maintain an erection) and very early ejaculation before vaginal insertion.

2. Woman's problem: either tight hymen or severe fear of pain & bleeding

3. Position difficulties: surprisingly, many couples find it difficult to take a proper position for sex as many do not have proper orientation of each other's body too.

Probable reasons behind nonconsummation of a marriage:

1. Extreme exhaustion: being very tired or exhausted can make you sexually inactive. One might be stressed due to work pressure. You or your partner could be tired of balancing professional and personal life. All these factors could lead to nonconsummation of marriage.

2. Real or apparent rejection: in many cases, only one person makes efforts to consummate the marriage. The partner may not directly decline your advances, but might not show much passion. This kind of passive response makes the other person feel rejected. You tend to avoid communication of such feelings and that complicates your situation. Along with the lack of intercourse, there arises a lack of love as well.

3. Any kind of substance abuse: addiction can deter you from performing in bed. Alcohol or drug abuse can reduce your sexual capabilities. There is also a range of medications leading to erectile dysfunction or vaginal dryness as a side effect. Having a physical inadequacy can make you recede from the idea of consummation.

4. Lack of emotional attachment: two people might have gotten married under societal or familial pressure. They may not feel love for each other or might not have anything in common to strike a chord of friendship. Lack of emotional attachment can prohibit the consummation of your marriage.

5. Sexual trauma: a person might have experienced instances of sexual abuse in childhood or at some point of time in life. Such instances scar them forever; the scars could be deep enough to come in the way of intercourse after marriage.

You may be having plenty of insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don' t like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist. Once you open your heart out, u will feel free and begin to fly in life.

I'm suffering from my mental problem as I think much on those talks or things which are not relevant also.

MD - Alternate Medicine, BHMS

I'm suffering from my mental problem as I think much on those talks or things which are not relevant also.
You need to take deep breaths 10-12 times whenever you feel such irrelevant thoughts. And also you go for food supplement i.e. Naturamore male powder, 1 spoon in morning and evening for 1 month. It will definitely give you result by stopping this irrelevant thoughts. All these starts appearing is due to lack of nutrition and stress in this today's world. Better just go for it. If you are not getting it anywhere, please let me know. I will provide you. Take care :)

Hi I am regular smoker from last 7 year. Today I got very little bleeding during cough. Suggest me what to do.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You could be in danger if you do not quit immediately. You should visit a doctor first and get an immediate assessment of your problem and take the necessary medications. In the meantime you can follow these directions regarding quitting: You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting a reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged on. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check-up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact, these conditions can exist all through the day, unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heartbeat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact, it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chew gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. At least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. You could also join twitter2quit program and enjoy its success to give up smoking.

Hello, masturbation is a healthy way to release one's sexual tension. Engage in masturbation only & when you are sexually aroused. However, masturbation has no evidence of causing back pains. Maybe your posture or change in routine might be affecting your lower back.

My eight year old son is very lazy and aggressive in nature, how can I change him ?

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
Children learn from their environment. How is the atmosphere in your home, school and his friends circle? also he will be lazy in some activities and active in some others. Try to understand if he's interested in these activities. What is your reasons for wanting him to do it? is there any other thing that he likes and willing to do and you will also get your thing done? slowly you will need to develop negotiating skills to talk with your son as he's close to becoming a teenager. Children respond very well to negotiations. Don't try to change him. It'll boomerang on you as he's already aggressive.

I recently read that researchers believe certain foods might cure Alzheimer’s disease. Is this true? If so, which foods do this and how much would you have to consume to get the benefits?

PDDM, MHA, MBBS

Several epidemiological studies show that eating a Mediterranean diet dramatically reduces the risk of cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s disease. That means plenty of vegetables, beans, whole grains, fish, and olive oil—and limited dairy and meat.

I am diagnosed with bipolar 2 and borderline personality disorder. Do I have to take medicine my whole life?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

I am diagnosed with bipolar 2 and borderline personality disorder. Do I have to take medicine my whole life?
Probably, if you do not combine medication with counseling. Both can be crippling diseases if not treated and if treated early the prognosis is good. So quickly visit a psychiatrist and seek his/her opinion and you must then follow the medication prescribed. Comply with all the medical prescriptions and work in tandem with a counselor for a long time and learn coping skills and techniques to handle the daily challenges you will face. There are certain adaptations that will suit you during the elation phase and there are certain behaviors that are required during the depressed phases. In the meantime, you can do certain things that will give you benefits anyway. Emotional therapy will alleviate a lot of the problems faced in this condition because it is a mood disorder. You need to particularly look at your levels of anger both for its reasonableness and to express it in an appropriate manner. I suspect that much of this anger may have origins in early childhood that you may never be aware of now. Talk to your parents and explore that angle. This information will help the counselor too. Also, you will need to check whether there is any genetic factor involved. You must exercise regularly, eat healthily and sleep normally too. If your motivation and cooperation are good much can be achieved. You must have a time-structured schedule filled with interesting and reasonable activities and it must be monitored for compliance and delivery. The reason I say this is that many times you will be inclined to have grandiose notions and confidently believe that you can do without the medication. This will set you back many months in the treatment and delay and sabotage the recovery: forewarned you are forearmed. If this combination of medication with therapy is maintained for at least three years without any episodes or breakdowns, it is possible to taper the medication in consonance with the doctor. Bipolar is characterized by two extreme poles i. E. Feeling very high (mania) and suddenly feeling very low (depression). You can ask the doctor for the symptoms he noticed in you for a personal understanding.

How to Naturally Rid Yourself of Stress through Homeopathy

How to Naturally Rid Yourself of Stress through Homeopathy

Stress and treatment through homeopathy

Stress is a condition in which we feel frustrated, angry or worried and anxious due to circumstances we find ourselves in. Stress also takes the form of different diseases in your body, if it is left untreated.

Even when you are faced with the same situations, it can cause a different stress response in different people. In homeopathy, mental symptoms of the patient are analytically checked. Homeopathy first identifies the root cause, and the treatment approach differs based on this finding. Usually, the understanding of both the psycho and the physiological profile of the patient are combined, with the psychological profile being given more importance.

Here is a list of valid reasons why choosing homeopathy for stress treatment

1. Identifying the cause


Homeopathic medicines are not designed to suppress the symptoms and offer superficial relief. They work towards restoring the vitality of the body as a whole so that the body can itself combat with the diseases. Similar is the case for stress. Homeopathic medications address the underlying issues that cause stress and, therefore, they help you in dealing with your medical condition more effectively and permanently.

2. Symptom-based treatment

Homeopathy recognizes the uniqueness of the various symptoms and responses associated with stress.

For instance: homeopathic medicines for stress, when the cause of stress is grief (eg: losing a dear one) is Ignatia and natrum mur; whereas the medicines for stress, when stress is caused due to 'long and stressful work hours' is kali phos.

3. In-depth research

Homeopathy treatment is based on in-depth research to ascertain the factors that are responsible for your stress and deal with your condition accordingly.

Your brain is just another organ operating on the same biochemical principles as or heart or thyroid or liver. We experience feelings, positive or negative, at the cellular level - scientifically, it is no more than a complex interaction of chemicals and electrical activity.

The approach of homeopathy is more specific and, therefore, more effective.

Hello, Because of death events taking place in world. I have started thinking that what's the use of life one day we ...
Hello Lybrate user, lybrate-user "Life"& "Death" both exist because of each other. One does not exist without the other. Because it is the universal truth. But yes, you might have seen death more than life yet that does in no way conclude that you lose faith in nature. And death is just physcial. The spirit (soul) stays. There is a reason behind everything that happens around us. At that moment we might get shocked, so we are unable to get the reason. Of everything else, nature has the most logic to everything that happens within. So if you live, it's for a reason, live to find that and you must respect that reason. And just as there is a reasonbehind death too. You might not understand that now, but if you keep living you will eventually find the answer. Life is very precious and we have some very special job roll for every individuals. Try to find out what is your responsibility towards your life and you will definitely find it. But it will not do any good if you choose to go against the reason of your existence. And it is good to go through such phases in life, because basically you are an emotional person, so life is making you stronger. Try and start meditation. Meditation means to understand about yourself with some positive thoughts. It may not be an instant formula that fixes things but it will work. Have a good life ahead. All my good wishes are with you.
