What is most important is a secure, loving meaningful relationship. Sex is secondary. If your good behaviour- i. E. You never took advantage - could not keep her, sex would not matter. So, concentrate on being a good person, earn respect and money, girls will be attracted to your standing.

I am 25 years male and I have Pure-O Ocd which gives me intrusive thoughts and anxiety. What is the best treatment for this. Medicines didn't work for me.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Give the details and dosage of medications you took before concluding it to be resistant OCD. Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a common mental health problem. Symptoms typically include recurring thoughts and repetitive actions in response to the recurring thoughts. A common example is recurring thoughts about germs and dirt, with a need to wash your hands repeatedly to "clean off the germs" However, there are many other examples. The usual treatments are cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressant medicine, or both. Treatment often works well to reduce the symptoms and distress of OCD greatly. Consult a psychiatrist. All the best.

Masters in Psychology, M.PHIL in Medical & Social Psychology, PhD - Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
Hyperactive Attention Deficit Disorder

Parents think that their children never listen to them, don;t study  and when he goes to some relative home, he never keep quiet. When mother scold her child, so he then keeps quiet for sometime and afterwards behave as same before.  Child lie to their parents, hide things. Sometimes mother feel guilt for the same and sometimes curse the child.  In this condition parents must be careful for not to beat the child, not curse the child. Better to take your child to the psychologist and psychiatrist. One more thing to remember solution is not in magic stick. It takes time to modify the behavior.

I am working as BIM Engineer. My question is regarding Humans emotions. An extreme level (i.e.Verge) of any emotions either it is happy / sad / frustrate/ wondering. Whatever it is. These leads to what and why so?

Dear lybrate user As we all know that extreme of anything is dangerous. Negative emotions makes us anxious sad depressed stressed and also change our physiology as secretion of hormones is also involved. Same thing happens when somebody gets carried away regarding happy and positive emotions. Moreover extreme levels of happiness can lead to negative outcomes such as an increase in risky behaviors. Happiness could be maladaptive in the wrong contexts for example an unsafe environment when it would be more functional to feel emotions such as fear or anger. Pursuing happiness as a goal unto itself paradoxically leads to an overall diminishing of happiness.

Dear, I can understand. At your age concentration through meditation is a futile effort. That may not be possible at all. Instead engage yourself in games and enjoy with friends. That builds up concentration. Take care.

I have severe headache all time I feel like my body is paining I am pregnant too this is a normal habit of pregnancy or something another?

General Physician,
I have severe headache all time I feel like my body is paining I am pregnant too this is a normal habit of pregnancy ...
Head ache can be of many reasons and the commonest is visual refractive error of eyes, Checking eyes and correcting errors can cure headaches, similarly the cause can be migraine and tension. Tension relieving methods and migraine medication can sure these. Check your eyes first of all and do a blood CBC & TSH and inform me personally This includes the blood vessels, muscles and nerves of the head and neck. They may also result from changes in chemical activity in the brain. Primary headaches can occur when pain-sensitive structures in the head do not work properly. Common primary headaches include migraines, cluster headaches and tension headaches. Headache is a broad term that encompasses many different things. Headaches are pains that occur in any region of the head; they can occur on both sides the head or be isolated to a certain location. Headaches can radiate across the head from a central point or have a pincering vise-like quality. They can be sharp, throbbing or dull, appear gradually or suddenly and last for multiple days or less than an hour.4 There are multiple ways to define headaches. The International Headache Society (IHS) categorize headaches as primary headaches or secondary headaches, depending on what has caused them 1) Primary headaches Primary headaches are stand-alone illnesses caused directly by the overactivity of, or problems with, structures in the head that are pain-sensitive. This includes the blood vessels, muscles and nerves of the head and neck. They may also result from changes in chemical activity in the brain. Primary headaches can occur when pain-sensitive structures in the head do not work properly. Common primary headaches include migraines, cluster headaches and tension headaches. Some types of headache can be both primary and secondary as they may be an isolated issue or a result of another condition or illness. Such headaches can involve:  Direct physical stimuli, such as temperature and external pressure  Pain over the scalp (epicranial)  Physical exertion  Other miscellaneous headaches. 2) Secondary headaches Secondary headaches are headaches that are symptoms of another condition that stimulates the pain-sensitive nerves of the head. There are a vast number of different conditions that can cause secondary headaches, ranging in severity from an alcohol-induced hangover to a brain tumor. Secondary headaches can be the result of serious conditions such as stroke, but can equally be a consequence of eating cold food too quickly. In addition to those two examples, the following list should serve to illustrate the variety of different conditions that can cause secondary headaches:  Blood clots  Brain freeze (ice cream headaches)  Carbon monoxide poisoning  Concussion  Dehydration  Glaucoma  Influenza  Overuse of pain medication (rebound headaches)  Panic attacks  Stroke. As headaches can be a symptom of a serious condition, it is important to seek medical advice if headaches become more severe, regular or persistent. For example, if the headache is more painful and disruptive than previous headaches, worsens or fails to improve with medication or is accompanied by other symptoms such as confusion, fever, sensory changes and stiffness, a health care provider should be contacted.

Drinking water is a very good thing, if you have been doing this for more than two months, there must have been some improvement with your glow. But, you cannot expect your skin to glow any further just by drinking water. There are certain foods that improve your skin from inside or you can simply start with tablet nutraskin (natural skin therapy) to make your skin glow. If you do not like to apply face packs, make sure you cleanse and moisturise your skin daily.

Muscle aches often respond well to home treatment. Some measures you can take to ease any muscle discomfort from injuries and overuse include: resting the area of the body where you are experiencing aches and pains taking an over-the-counter pain reliever, such as ibuprofen applying ice to the affected area to help relieve pain and ease inflammation.

Dear Lybrate user ,In Indian culture sometime it becomes very irritating for girls but every culture has some merit and demerit our society is male dominated society so it happens .all this will change with time only .marriage is magical relation ,everyone needs partner for lifetime to share their feelings, emotions,love, friendship, many research have proven that good and happily married life decreases the susceptibility towards any disease. Everything happens for reason may be god chosen someone so perfect for you so that you should be happy on long term that's why god is testing your patience. We get beautiful rose sorrounded by thorns. Lets come to your problem as much you will think it ,it will become more bigger problem ,have a little faith in god, and do your work and consider all this as a part of life, just like you give exam ,give interview. Try to make yourself busy. If you feel more frustration you can contact me for counselling. Take care.

I am 45 years old suffering with over anxiety, depression,low energy and lower sex time. Please advice.
You are obviously suffering from depression which affects all the other symptoms you have raised. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved. If your sexual drive does not improve, please consult a sexologist​ too.

Hello, take homoeopathic medication - schwabe's bacopa monierri 1x/ thrice daily and kali phos. 6x/ once at night - take them for 4 weeks. Management: there are few yoga poses which helps in calming your mind and relieves stress, but first learn these under a qualified yoga-teacher as many poses are prohibited in certain diseases or medical conditions! exercises: practice shavasana or corpse pose as it looks like a dead body. If practiced correctly and with full efforts, can relax every body part, relaxing not only the body but also the mind: spread the legs one to two feet apart, the toes are turned outwards, the heels facing each other, a comfortable distance apart. Bring the arms a little away from the body, palms turned upward. Relax the neck and allow it to turn to the side if it is more comfortable. Close the eyes and focus the attention on the body, breathing normally. Begin focusing each body part and relaxing it, then moving on. Keep the mind focused on relaxation, the breath should be normal. Relax the whole body. (the mind and body are deeply connected. If the mind is occupied by thoughts and worries then the shavasana will be unsuccessful. Therefore one has to acquire the stability of the mind along with the stability of the body.) anuloma involves inhaling through both nostrils together and exhaling each breath alternately between the left and right nostrils. The thumb of the right hand is used to manipulate the right nostril, while the pinky and ring finger are used to control the left nostril. There are many other poses of yoga like balasan, setu bandha sarvangasan, uttanasan, garudasan, savasana, triconasana, viprita karani, marjaryasana, dhyana, bhujangasana, anulom-vilum, pranayam, etc. Another stress-buster can be getting involved in any of your hobbies (may be a childhood hobby which you used to enjoy a lot!) - dancing, singing, painting, listening to soothing music, playing musical instruments, etc. (believe me, you would really enjoy doing this alone as well or may be with your friends, kids).

You must go for some anger management work to a counselor and only if you have resolved that problem should you call her also into counseling. There is no point trying to get her back without making the change that has been hampering the relationship so far. If she is so good and has all those lovely qualities, then you have gone and messed the relationship up and hopefully not to an irreparable level. It is not enough to have no bad qualities, you must be a satisfying husband and above all, she must be respected for who she is. The first tow years of any marriage is very critical to the future of that relationship and it seems you have already sabotaged it. You will need to start all over again but you will need some professional help and you must seek it fast.

My age is 21. I think I have a problem with my memory. I couldn't remember easily. So please help me how to improve my memory?

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Patna
Memory is dependent on many things:- memory has three components 1. Registration 2. Storage 3. Recall registration depends on on the state of awareness and attentiveness at the time. Suppose you are reading and at the same time your mind gets diverted on other things and you get some other thoughts, then at that point of time your attention is not on your study material, hence after some time you may feel that you could not understand any thing. Since it is not registered in mind hence, you can not remember things well later on. After registration, the event/thing gets stored in mind. Gradually it gets faded day by day. If we recall this thing and fill the gap in recall then this memory gradually becomes permanent. So after memorizing a lesson you have to think and recall it in mind and you have to refer to book immediately to if you feel yourself unable to recall. This thing you have to repeat again and again. This repeated recall in mind will make your memory permanent. For increasing your storage you have to forget unnecessary things and keep reminding required item. Recall is a procedure to bring the stored memory in front. What ever you read whole year and go to sit in exam, you remember things due to recall. For easy recall of complex things you may use coding method. Hope it helps you. I am here for any further clarification.
