Both men, as well as women, suffer from intimacy issues that range from vaginal dryness in women, erectile dysfunction in men, to low sex drive in both the partners. It is not simply limited to lack of interest in sex but can involve pain while having intercourse, difficulty in having an orgasm and maintaining an erection. Though there are various factors that lead to these ailments, there are great means of increasing libido and enjoy lovemaking once you have detected the problem.

Various types of impotence in women
Sexual dysfunction in women can be grouped into various disorders such as lack of sexual desire, pain while having intercourse and difficulty in orgasm. Alterations in hormone levels, changes in medication and other allied factors can lead to low libido as well as other sexual problems in women. Some of the most common sexual problems in women are:

  1. Vaginal dryness: This leads to a lowered sex drive and problems with desire and sex can be very painful as the vagina is not lubricated. It can be caused by menopause or breastfeeding. Even psychological issues like stress can lead to vaginal dryness.
  2. Lower sex drive: Lack of sexual drive can also be caused by lower levels of the hormone oestrogen. Fatigue, anxiety, depression can lead to low libido along with certain medicines. For example, the use of antidepressants can reduce sex drive.
  3. Difficulty in reaching orgasm: Orgasmic disorders like delay in reaching orgasm, inability to have an orgasm can affect both men and women.
  4. Pain while having sex: This pain is often caused by vaginal dryness and sometimes a burning sensation can be accompanied during sex.

Sexual dysfunction in men

Impotency - Have Ayurveda At Your Rescue!

Impotency - Have Ayurveda At Your Rescue!

If male reproductive capacity is affected due to any malfunction, it's known as impotency. It may include the inability to perform sexual actions as well as inability or disorder to produce children. The condition may accompany mental or physical conditions, preventing from successfully performing sexual intercourse. Female impotency is called frigidity.

What Causes Male Impotency 

Erectile dysfunction is one of the major impotency types. This dysfunction can be temporary or even permanent. It is important that erection has to be for ample time for successful penetration into the vagina so that sperms are injected into the uterus. Failure to do so leads to unsuccessful intercourse.

Natural Cure for Impotence

There are several ayurvedic treatments to fix erectile dysfunction. The major causes of erectile dysfunction include malfunctioning of the glands, tight foreskin or disordered limbs, use of drugs and sexual infections.

  1. One of the important ayurvedic medicines to cure it is 'VajikarmaAushadhis'. 
  2. People suffering from such dysfunction should have more intake of high-protein diets.
  3. Other ayurvedic medicines that are recommended are mainly to strengthen muscles, veins as well as nerves so that proper erection is regained.

Low Sperm Count

This may lead to impotency in men. Correct number of sperms is vital to bear a child, though it's just one sperm that is required for conceiving. Ideally, each per ml of semen contains over 20 million sperms. Oligospermia is a term coined for low sperm count, which refers to quality as well as quantity of sperm. 

Ayurvedic Treatment for Low Sperm Count 
Mucunapruriens, Indian ginseng and Tribulusterrestris help in increasing the quantity of the semen ejaculation.

Ayurvedic Treatment for Sexual Aversion
If there is a lack of interest in engaging oneself in sexual activity, it's known as sexual aversion leading to impotency. This may relate to either physical conditions or mental state. In the case of physical disorders, herbal medicines work. In the case of mental aversion, meditation may help. 

Ejaculation disorders - Ayurvedic Treatment
Ejaculation disorder is a major reason for impotency in men. It has been divided into three types: 

  1. Premature ejaculation: Discharge of semen immediately after penetration
  2. Inhibited ejaculation: Slow occurring ejaculation
  3. Retrograde ejaculation: Semen is discharged into the bladder itself instead of ejaculation through the urethra

Ayurvedic medicine suggested for this is consuming Indian ginseng powder with a glass of milk every day. Nutmeg also helps. Yoga and meditation are required to balance the mind as well as the body. A mixture of ginseng, milk and goat milk also helps.

Thousands of people suffer from impotence, which they often do not disclose. These tips would help to cure their problem.

Impotency - Know How It Impacts The Male Youth?

Impotency - Know How It Impacts The Male Youth?

Impotence is often related to old-age and deteriorating sexual drives. However, not all cases of impotence pertain to the older crowd. Youth impotence is an increasingly common condition among males in generation X, however, it is rare but not totally absent in females as well.

 In males, youth impotence refers to a young man’s incapability to attain an erection or maintain it throughout the intercourse. The main reasons for youth impotence can be attributed to over-masturbation or having sex too often. A certain study indicates that excessive masturbation at a very young age requires an excess of testosterone, thereby restricting the resting time of the nervous system. The endocrine function of the body is adversely affected as well because the production of hormones and liver enzymes is gravely reduced. 

Other causes of male youth impotence are:

  1. Marijuana: Marijuana increases the level of the inflammatory hormone ‘prostaglandin’, E-2, that is responsible for inflammation of the brain arteries which results in interrupted blood flow to the penis.
  2. Methamphetamine and Ecstasy: Prolonged meth abuse can cause confined testicular function and orgasmic disorders whilst over-dosing on ecstasy is responsible for wrecking the ‘serotonin’ producing neurons present in the brain that regulate and control sexual activities.

Causes:
Youth impotence is relatively typical in females. However, it isn’t a condition which is non-existent. Females in the ripe ages of their youth experience “inhibited desire disorder” which means the woman has no or very low desire to engage in any form of sexual activity. This condition can be attributed to a variety of factors: drug abuse, unpleasant past experiences, chronic distress, insomnia, etc. Experiencing a piercing pain during intercourse can also lead to this condition. This pain is unnatural and might persist due to lack of lubrication, vaginismus (pelvic muscle spasms) or genital herpes

The youth impotence in both males and females can be healed by a combination of the following methods:

  1. Psychosexual counselling
  2. Intake of pills which stabilise the flow of hormones in your body
  3. Kegel exercises which strengthen one’s pelvic muscles
  4. Addition of necessary nutrients to your diet

Can Homeopathy Transform Your Sex Life?

Can Homeopathy Transform Your Sex Life?

Do you feel like sex has become a burden for you? You know you love your partner but when it comes to sex, you feel as if you have lost that desire? Then you are not the only one.

Many people go through a similar phase, known as loss of sex desire or low libido. This condition tends to affect you not just mentally but also your relationship with your partner and spouse. Sex is a type of communication between various hormones and neurotransmitters. Only when these two things work in harmony, you feel that sexual desire and excitement.

What is causing you to lose your sex desire?
A number of factors cause a person to experience sexual aversion. Knowing about these causes can help you understand and diagnose the problem. Some of the causes of this condition are the following:

  1. Stress
  2. Diabetes
  3. Depression
  4. Anxiety
  5. Impotency
  6. Child sexual abuse
  7. Childbirth
  8. Drugs
  9. Hypothyroid (when the thyroid gland fails to generate sufficient hormones)
  10. Birth control medication
  11. Inadequate testosterone levels in men
  12. Substance abuse such as drugs, smoking and alcohol
  13. Hysterectomy (a procedure which removes the uterus) in case of women
  14. Pregnancy
  15. Absence of mental and emotional satisfaction in a marriage
  16. Uncomfortable and painful sex due to decreased supply of blood to the vagina

How can you determine if you are suffering from low libido?
Knowing and recognizing the problem will go a long way in remedying this problem. This is how you can understand whether you are suffering from low libido:

  1. Diminished sex drive i.e., if you don’t feel like having frequent sex like before
  2. Feeling sluggish when faced with the prospect of having sex
  3. When you realize sex has become more like a chore or duty rather than something spontaneous and pleasurable
  4. If your partner or spouse has to put a lot more effort than normal in arousing you
  5. You don’t enjoy sex as much as you used to
  6. If you hardly think of sex as much as you used to
  7. You just stop caring about sex altogether

How does homeopathy play a role in making this problem better?
Since homeopathy is completely natural, it always targets the body’s healing function by restoring and rejuvenating it. Because diminished sexual desire is an emotional and psychological condition, homeopathy can greatly help in treating it by eradicating the emotional triggers. Even though homeopathy takes a longer time in treating problems it is because it strikes at the root of the problem and permanently gets rid of the disorder. Your homeopath doctor will formulate your medicines very precisely keeping in mind your symptoms and difficulties and this will help treat your condition better. There remains a very little chance of the same problem recurring. Since homeopathic medicines are extremely diluted, there are hardly any side effects.

Sex is nothing to be ashamed about. It is a very crucial part of a relationship and marriage and just because you are suffering from a low libido now, that does not mean you are going to feel like that forever. So, trust the power of homeopathy and get your sex life back on track.

Infertility In Men And Women!

Infertility In Men And Women!

Males and females are afflicted by several types of impotence and dysfunctions which can negatively impact their relationship with their partners.

Erectile dysfunction, orgasm/ejaculation disorders or low libido are some examples of male impotence.

1. Erectile Dysfunction (ED): Medical conditions such as diabetes or high blood pressure, or anxiety about having sex can lead to ED. Other contributing factors to ED are depression, fatigue and stress.

2. Ejaculation Problems: These include ejaculation that occurs early during coitus and the inability to ejaculate at all. Some of the causes for this can be a history of sexual trauma, strict religious beliefs, antidepressants and anxiety about sex.

3. Low Libido: Decreased hormone levels, illness, and medication side effects, and psychological issues like stress, depression and anxiety about having sex can lead to decreased or no sexual desire.

Loss of interest (low libido) in sex, difficulty in reaching orgasm, vaginal dryness and tightness causing pain during sex are some of the sexual problems that affect females.

1. Low Libido: Lower levels of the oestrogen hormone can cause an absence of sexual desire. Certain medications like antidepressants, fatigue, depression and anxiety can also lead to low libido.

2. Difficulty achieving orgasms: Not being able to achieve orgasms or delayed orgasms can affect both men and women. Again, certain medications like antidepressants can cause orgasm disorders.

3. Vaginal dryness: Sex can get painful if the vagina is not properly lubricated which in turn effects libido, arousal and desire. Hormonal changes during menopause and breastfeeding as well as psychological issues like anxiety about sex can cause vaginal dryness.

4. Pain during sex: Vaginal dryness or endometriosis causes pain during sex.

 

The Homeopathic Approach to Treat Infertility:

The homeopathic approach towards the management of health problems is constitutional. The treatment takes into account the presenting complaints - the symptoms - along with the unique physical, mental and genetic make-up that individualizes a person. Homeopathic medicines act at the roots of all ailments. They can rectify deviations of the hormonal system and get them back to normalcy. The simple homeopathic procedure effectively and efficiently avoids complicated procedures that follow the common treatments of infertility. More specifically, the complete hormonal harmony greatly increases the chances of conception without the harmful and/or painful side effects of medications, devices and invasive procedures. The biggest advantage of homeopathic treatment is that even after the treatment, the high sperm count is maintained. The medicines involved are easy to take since there are only sweet pills and drops.

The homeopath plans the medication separately for every individual, by understanding his or her physical, as well as emotional and mental or spiritual imbalances. That is why this system becomes an excellent option for those seeking help with this issue, as it addresses health on a deep holistic level. The homeopath carefully prescribes the medicine that works on the real cause of infertility, along with other symptoms like any type of painstress, etc.

 

There are no prerequisites to start a homeopathy treatment for infertility. Anyone who just came to know about their infertility problem or those who have tried other infertility treatments without any results can consult a homeopath. Homeopathy medicines can also be used with other treatment methods, but the homeopath should be informed about it to prevent any interfering actions.

Final Tips For Infertility Treatments Using Homeopathy:

Homeopathy therapy works on male and female infertility in following way:

  1. It regulates and balances the body’s hormones, menstrual cycle and enhances the ovulation process in females.
  2. In males, it helps to increase the sperm count, their mobility and also their morphology by naturally stimulating the body.
  3. It helps with emotional blockages, disturbances and ambiguous thought processes that may affect fertility.
  4. It helps with the stress, anxiety and depression problems for those who are trying to conceive.
  5. It also helps in curing the side-effects of various other fertility treatments.

The homeopathic treatment for infertility is strictly individualistic. Whatever the reason that the patient opts for homeopathy, the treatment should be supported by a healthy diet and proper lifestyle, like avoiding alcohol and smoking. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a homeopath and ask a free question.

Sexual Dysfunction - How Can A Psychiatrist Assist You?

A large number of people in India suffer from sexual disorders of one kind or another. Some of these conditions are purely physical and a separate branch of treatment is used to deal with the same.

However, some of the sexual dysfunctions are caused due to a problem in the psyche of the patient. Conventional medications and treatment are unable to deal with such issues. The help of a psychiatrist is important under these circumstances. Here is a look at the role that psychiatry plays in treating sexual dysfunctions.

  1. Impotence- Doctors will first determine whether the impotence is due to physical or psychological ailments. If the impotence results from a psychological disorder, doctors will not treat the impotence itself but the underlying condition.
  2. Orgasmic Disorder- People may be unable to reach climax during sexual intercourse. This can be caused due to both psychological and physiological reasons. Lack of knowledge of the sexual anatomy and lack of attraction towards the sexual partner are two psychological reasons why you might be unable to orgasm.
  3. Premature ejaculation- Premature ejaculation is considered a problem only when the female partner is displeased with the duration of sexual intercourse. In such a case, both the partners need to seek counselling to figure out what may be leading to the issue.
  4. Vaginismus- It is a condition where the outer portion of the vagina contracts every time an object goes inside the vagina. This condition may be caused due to a history of sexual violence or a trauma regarding the same. Psychiatrists can help deal with the underlying trauma and fear of sex, which will greatly help alleviate the symptoms of the condition.

If conventional medications and treatment do not help with sexual dysfunctions, it is essential to consult a psychiatrist, as you may be suffering from a psychological issue and not a physical one.
