Sperm And It's Help In Pregnancy!

Sperm can't swim, new data after 343 years - 
After 343 years of research, scientists have given exciting information about sperm. They claim that sperm cannot swim. Stay away from swimming. Sperm can't move their tails in that way.
So how does it take so long to reach the egg? that has been detailed in a research report of live-science. Com. There, anthony von leuvenhook said, sperm can swim like mature swimmers, eel fish. On march 17, 18 the scientist thought this theory was correct.

Leuvenhook invented the first microscope and then introduced microorganisms. It speaks of the microscopic blood cells, blood cells, and nerve cells of the human body. In 18, he showed under a 2-d microscope that the human body has things exactly like animals with round heads and long tails that can swim. He hinted at the mystery of creating new life. The thing with that long tail is called sperm which the scientist called ‘living animal molecule’.

What leuwenhoek saw under a 2-d microscope is still examined under a 2-d microscope, and sperm can be seen swimming. Not really. Scientists at the university of sheffield in england have examined it with a 3d microscope and found that sperm do not swim at all. Instead, they move around like sparrows. As soon as pak eats, it runs towards the ovum. Scientists at the university of national autonomous de mexico have framed the sperm in a blue-sky exploration method. This microscopy technique can take 55, 000 pictures per second. In this way, every second frame is taken to see exactly how the sperm moves.

It has been seen that the sperm eats the twisted tail. It rotates about 360 degrees. A lot like wheels. However, the rotation of the head and the rotation of the tail are somewhat different. Sperm are twisted in two different ways of rotation. Seen through a 3d microscope, it looks like they are spinning like a ball. Sperm can travel a long way at the speed that is created as a result. As it turns, the egg goes into the fluid and builds up.

Know How Unani Can Treat Sexual Debility!

Sexual debility is one of the most common sexual problems faced by individuals. Sexual debility refers to a situation where a person is unable to perform sexual acts properly. Though, often people consider sexual debility to be nothing but a moment's lack of sexual vitality; but in reality, it's a serious sexual issue that if left untreated can cause serious trouble in a relationship, and can lead to mental stress. However, this problem can be treated with the help of medication, with or without side effects. Unani medicines help treat sexual debility without side effects.

Why does sexual debility occur in a person?
While there is no specific reason that could be stated to cause the problem, lack of energy and malnutrition can excessively lead to the problem. Also, obesity and lack of confidence can also lead to sexual debility. Sexual debility can affect one due to injury to the genitalia, excessive indulgence in sexual activities, such as masturbation, and poor lifestyle habits, which include drinking, smoking, etc.

Possible symptoms -
Some of the most common signs of sexual debility include lack of sexual desire, fatigue, impotence, and low level of energy or vitality. Sometimes, people with sexual debility, also suffer from nocturnal emissions, palpitation, premature ejaculation, and nervousness during or before engaging in sexual activities. People with sexual debility often tend to suffer from lower back pain, frequent desire to urinate, and weak kidney functionality. Remember, sexual debility is not infertility; rather, it is a condition where erectile dysfunction leads to infertility if not treated.

How can Unani help get rid of the condition?
According to the ancient Unani discipline, the human body has been created with seven natural components that are responsible for wellbeing and maintenance of the overall health. And keeping in mind this very concept, Unani medicines focus on learning about the various states of the body and restoring them to their original selves by strengthening, so that the body learns to heal its own problems. When it comes to treating sexual debility, Unani treatment delves deeper into the cause and then offers necessary medications along with various healthy lifestyle changes, if necessary. In the majority of cases, different combinations of different Unani medicines are used to treat sexual debility effectively. Therefore, it is advised to consult an Unani medicine expert before opting for these medications.

Often considered to be synonymous with impotence, sexual debility can be a serious threat to a happy life if not treated at its early stages. Sometimes, other medications can lead to certain side effects. As the approach of Unani diagnosis and medicine prescription is different, the method of treatment guarantees no side effects and hence allows a patient to lead a healthy life after the completion of the course of the treatment.

Anxious About Your Sexual Life - Know How Anxiety Ban Create A Problem!

Anxious About Your Sexual Life - Know How Anxiety Ban Create A Problem!

Intercourse is meant to be a pleasurable and intimate experience. But it might become an unpleasant act if you are suffering from performance anxiety. When you are mentally occupied by questions such as "Do I look too fat?" or "Did I do that right?", sex stops being a gratifying experience.

Incessant anxiety over your ability or appearance can result in sex becoming nerve-wracking and stressful for you. It might even have you avoiding sex altogether. This psychological condition is termed as sexual performance anxiety.

Sex isn't only a physical reaction, there are emotions tied to it as well. If you are too stressed out and your mind is preoccupied, your body reflects your inner turmoil and you cannot get aroused.

Causes - 

The causes of sexual performance anxiety include: 

  1. Fear that you wouldn't be able to satisfy your partner and perform well sexually
  2. Body image issues (Such as stressing about your weight)
  3. Problems in your relationship
  4. Men worry that their penis don't 'measure' up
  5. Men might be concerned about taking too much time to orgasm, or about premature ejaculation
  6. Women worry about not enjoying the experience or being unable to have an orgasm

Symptoms - Your mental state has a deep impact on your physical state. The effect of stress hormones norepinephrine and epinephrine can hinder your sexual performance.

Symptoms of sexual performance anxiety include:

  1. In men, blood vessels constrict due to the effect of stress hormones. This leads to reduced blood flow to the penis, thus making it difficult for the man to get an erection.
  2. Often though it is less diagnosed in women, sexual performance anxiety leads to trouble in lubrication during sex. Lack of lubrication dims the desire to have sex.

Sexual performance anxiety is a vicious, inescapable cycle. Increased anxiety hampers you from having sex, making you think you won't be able to perform well, which causes even more anxiety.

Treatment - Consult a doctor you will be comfortable with discussing your problems. Sexual performance can be either treated by medication (if you have an underlying medical condition such as erectile dysfunction) or through therapy.

Talking to a therapist or counsellor about your problems can help you in several ways. You can learn to become more comfortable with yourself and your body. You can also understand your problems better, which can eliminate your anxiety.

Sexual Problems - How Can Ayurveda Combat Them?

Sexual Problems - How Can Ayurveda Combat Them?

A healthy intimate life is very important for a person’s physical and emotional health. Sexual issues are very common, though they are not frankly discussed, given the cultural inhibitions that we are brought up with. Both men and women have specific issues, and it is often due to a combination of physical and psychological factors.

Some of the common physical factors that affect sex include normal aging, hormonal imbalances, chronic disease conditions like diabetes and heart disease, menopause, low libido, painful sex, smoking, alcohol abuse, etc. All these affect a person’s desire for sex, ability to perform, or a combination of both.

Psychological factors that affect sexual life include performance anxiety, work-related stress, strains in the relationship, family issues, financial issues, past sexual relationships, history of abuse, etc.

Sexual issues manifest slightly differently in men and women. Reduced sexual desire, painful intercourse, lack of orgasms, and inability to be aroused are commonly seen in women. On the other hand, men suffer from erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, low sperm count, reduced libido, etc.

One of the first step towards resolving sexual issues is to acknowledge that there is a problem and come to terms with it. In more than 50% of the cases, coming to terms with it and having a frank conversation with the partner can help solve the issue completely. Both the partners become comfortable discussing it and make an attempt to find ways to address it. In some cases, involving a counsellor also helps.

Ayurveda believes that the following ingredients have a strong role to play in resolving sexual issues in both men and women.

  1. Shilajit: Known for its potency inducing properties, it is believed to renew vitality and increase the core energy essential for sexual power.
  2. Safed musli: It is very useful as a reproductive tonic to rejuvenate and improve impotency, premature ejaculation, and low sperm count in men. It is known to enhance libido and cure involuntary ejaculations. It can be used by mixing it with honey, sugar, ghee, and long pepper.
  3. Ashwagandha: This is another wonder medicine with multiple uses. The roots are powdered and widely used in treating female sterility. It can also be mixed in milk and used, starting from 5 to 6 nights after menstruation.
  4. Drumstick: Flowers of this plant can be boiled in milk and used as a sexual tonic in both males and females. The bark can also be powdered and used in impotency and premature ejaculation.
  5. Garlic: A remarkable home remedy, it is a proven aphrodisiac, where it restores sexual power.
  6. Ginger: Another valuable aphrodisiac, ginger juice can be mixed with honey and egg and consumed daily for a month. It helps cure impotency, premature ejaculation, and improves sperm quality.

Early Discharge - How To Manage It?

Early Discharge - How To Manage It?

A prolonged intimate experience is always desirable, but due to varied reasons, men sometimes experience early discharge. Also known as premature ejaculation, it is the most common male sexual problem. About 30% of the male population has had this problem at some time in their lives, with the semen coming out before any of the partners experiencing an orgasm.

The ejaculation has two phases: Emission and Ejaculation. In people with early discharge, there is quick emission of the seminal fluid and the sperms are ejaculated before a thorough penetration, because of which there could be incomplete satisfaction for both the partners.

An actual definition of this problem is not possible, as different people have different expectations and experiences. However, as a general rule, ejaculation that happens within 10 seconds or 1 minute is considered premature. Some of the causes include anxiety, unhealthy lifestyle, and inappropriate dietary patterns. For men, early discharge can be very stressful as they begin to doubt their self-worth. The inability to satisfy their partner can be very troublesome.

Symptoms: There are no symptoms other than experiencing it during the actual act. There is rapid arousal with a short-lasting erection and an ejaculation that happens within minutes or sometimes even less than a minute.

Remedies: While the anxiety and the lifestyle changes need to be managed, there are other simple techniques that can help manage the issue at hand.

Dietary changes:

  1. Eggs: They provide the required protein that is essential for the production of sex hormones.
  2. Blueberries: This improves blood flow, especially to the genital area, thereby helping maintain an erection.
  3. Asparagus powder: This can be mixed in milk and boiled and consumed twice daily.
  4. Almond and gingerA mixture of crushed almonds soaked overnight with ginger powder, cardamom, and saffron in milk also gives desired results.

In addition to this, there are specific yoga postures which are believed to help in delaying the ejaculation. Meditation including bhastrika pranayama, anulom vilom, and kapal bhaati can be helpful.
There is a strong psychological component with stress and anxiety being major reasons for early discharge. Therefore, managing these underlying issues can often relieve the problem. Counseling the couple also is very helpful in managing the issue. An understanding spouse often helps solve the issue, rather than aggravate it.

Therapies like shirodhara and shiro basti can also help reduce stress and anxiety and manage premature ejaculation. Frequent sexual activity should be avoided, with masturbation not to exceed more than 2 times a week. Also, it has been observed that incidence of premature ejaculation reduces with age and most men learn to control ejaculation as they grow older. The problem is more with younger men who are more anxious and curious about their sex life.

Impotency - How Does Homeopathy Treat It?

Nowadays, many males are suffering from sexual problem, mainly impotency. Impotency is of mainly two types. The first type is psychological impotency and the second type is pathological impotency.

Psychological impotency is mainly because of stress which includes situational stress, unusual fears, phobias and sexual fatigue. Surprisingly, it has been found in patients of age group 20-40 yrs. On the other hand, pathological impotency is because of systemic illness like diabetes, leading to polyneuropathy, hormonal disturbances like decrease in male sexual hormones, testesterone, tumours, etc.

After a thorough consultation of these patients, it is observed that most of the patients suffer from psychological impotency. Homoeopathy is the only system of medicine which has the ability to act on mind. There are five questions for patients to answer after which the state of mind and a state of body of the patient is understood.

After getting answers from the patient, the symptoms are individualised and matched with certain homoeopathic remedies for impotency. In this way, the exact remedy is found through which the problem of impotency can be cured.

Homeopathic medicines do wonders only if it exactly matches. That is why, there is no specific remedies for any problem in homeopathy. Along with medicines, the homoeopathy always recommended meditation which helps the patients of impotency tremendously, especially psychological impotency. We suggest Vipassana type of meditation for the patients for 45 mins daily. In that one can start with anapana meditation by SN Goenka which can be found easily on internet.

Pathological impotency is less frequent. It is mostly because of hormonal disturbance like low testosterone level in blood and polyneuropathy. The approach in homoeopathy for pathological impotency is like any other disease. The patient only needs to answer only 5 questions which would be enough to root out any problem. Along with medicines, diet and regimen are also significant.

The following steps, although not necessarily easy, will enhance the level of respect in your relationship so that it can grow and thrive: listen attentively to your partner's needs, desires, and concerns.

  • Show that you notice your partner's needs, desires, and concerns by acting on what you discover about partner.

What Can Trigger Erectile Dysfunction? - Ways To Treat It!

What Can Trigger Erectile Dysfunction? - Ways To Treat It!

There is a general misconception about impotence and erectile dysfunction being two separate conditions. In fact, impotence is just another term for erectile dysfunction. If you have a problem in achieving an erection of more than 70% of the times when you want to have sex, you are suffering from erectile dysfunction.

Impotence is the same thing, but it also encompasses other concerns related to sexual health such as low libido and issues with ejaculation.

Causes of erectile dysfunction- 

  1. Disruption of blood flow in the body or disruption in hormonal secretion and nerve supply to the body

  2. Vascular and neurological causes

  3. The occurrence of a disease known as atherosclerosis, which is caused due to smoking and diabetes. In this case, the arteries in the penis get narrowed and clogged.

  4. Neuropathy, which occurs because of diabetes or diabetic neuropathy

  5. Nerve damage because of a previous surgery around the pelvis area

  6. High blood pressure or hypertension also result in damaged arteries throughout the vascular system. Blood flow gets impaired and proper erection is hampered.

  7. Physical causes such as high cholesterol and obesity, Parkinson’s disease and multiple cases of sclerosis

  8. Smoking, excessive drinking and substance abuse

  9. The reactions and side effects of certain medicines

  10. Several psychological factors such as depression, excessive stress, tension, and performance anxiety, which reduce libido

  11. Poor communication with the sexual partner

  12. Intake of several medicines such as alpha adrenergic blockers, beta blockers, chemotherapy medications and central nervous system depressants

Treatment for erectile dysfunction

Different treatments may be used to treat erectile dysfunction. These include the following:

  1. Medication: A group of drugs known as PDE-5 or phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors is used for the treatment of erectile dysfunction.

  2. Vacuum devices: Vacuum erection devices help in providing an erection in men. A mechanical procedure is involved where the penis is made rigid using a vacuum pump sealed around it. This device draws blood and an erection becomes possible.

  3. Surgical treatment: Penile implants can be used to treat erectile dysfunction. Mechanical implants are used, which help to keep the penis hard. Vascular surgery is another option, which incorporates the correction of blood vessels responsible for erectile dysfunction.

  4. Natural treatment: There are a number of lifestyle changes that help a man naturally treat erectile dysfunction. Regular exercising, especially weight-bearing ones, not only aids in increasing blood flow, but also improves the production of testosterone. Following a balanced diet with more intake of fruits and vegetables, limiting alcohol and avoiding smoking also generate positive results.

The term impotence and erectile dysfunction are quite related as they indicate the same conditions. However, today the term erectile dysfunction is more popular over the term impotence. In case you experience any of the symptoms of this condition, you should consult a doctor immediately.
