Clitoral Stimulation Vs Vaginal Stimulation For Female Orgasms!

Clitoral Stimulation Vs Vaginal Stimulation For Female Orgasms!

Most women report that clitoral stimulation is an integral aspect of their orgasm experience. we conducted a study on Eighty-eight women 18 to 53 years old who answered detailed questions about their usual and recent orgasm experiences, sexual history, depression, and anxiety. Then, they viewed a series of sexual films.Most women (64%) reported that clitoral and vaginal stimulation contributed to their usual method of reaching orgasm.  Women who reported primarily stimulating their clitoris to reach orgasm reported higher trait sexual drive and higher sexual arousal to visual sexual stimulation and were better able to increase their sexual arousal to visual sexual stimulation when instructed than women who reported orgasms primarily from vaginal sources. Thus, watching porn or sex video call will help a woman get orgasm more by clitoral stimulation than vaginal insertion.

IVF Protocols When You Have Low Ovarian Reserves

IVF Protocols When You Have Low Ovarian Reserves

The available eggs in the ovaries at a time are collectively called an ovarian reserve. Low reserve happens when the production of eggs reduces. This affects the chances of pregnancy. The general cause of low reserves can be aging ovaries. In such cases, the ovary may be healthy and functioning even if the reserve is low. Production of eggs lower as a woman ages. A woman starts with 250,00 to 500,000 eggs at puberty and ends up with 1000 eggs at menopause.

Causes

Low reserves are caused by

  1. Production of eggs decreases: Chromosomal abnormalities like Turner syndrome (lack of two X chromosomes) and genetic anomalies like Fragile X can decrease egg production.
  2. Ovarian tissue damage: Rough torsion, endometriosis triggered ovarian cysts, malignant or benign tumours, surgical removal of ovary or any other part of it, chemotherapy or radiation, pelvic adhesions, immunological problems or high BMI (Body Mass Index) can destroy the ovarian tissues.

IVF Protocols

If a woman has low ovarian reserves, then she will be put on the either of the following protocols:

  1. Short GnRHa Flare: Gonadotrophin releasing-hormone-agonist (GnRHa) like Lupron, Nafarelin, Synarel or Buserelin is administered. This therapy is initiated at the onset of menstruation. The goal of the treatment is to stimulate the release of the follicular stimulating hormone (FSH) which augments the ovarian follicular growth.
  2. Combined Clomiphene or Gonadotrophin/Letrozole Stimulation: Older women are mostly administered this protocol. But it is strongly advised not to, as this protocol can potentially harm the egg or the embryo.
  3. Mid-follicular GnRH-antagonist protocol: Once the GnRHa-agonist protocol is commenced, the GnRH-antagonist is given several days later. Once the follicles reach the size of 12mm, GnRHa antagonists like Ganirelix, Orgalutran, Cetrotide and Cetrorelix are added. These drugs stop the pituitary from secreting the luteinizing hormone (FSH leads to secretion of this hormone).
  4. Long GnRHa Pituitary Down Regulation Protocol: This is the usual approach to deal with low ovarian reserves.
  5. Agonist/Antagonist Conversion Protocol: This protocol inhibits FSH production. This protocol generally yields good results.

Ovarian Hyper-Stimulation Syndrome (OHSS) - How Does IVF Cause It?

Ovarian Hyper-Stimulation Syndrome (OHSS) - How Does IVF Cause It?

Ovarian Hyper Stimulation Syndrome is noticed in women who are administered hormone medicines through injections. These medicines trigger the development of eggs in the woman’s ovaries. This condition can be a side effect of IVF. It causes the ovaries to inflame and become very painful.

In some women, it progresses to severe OHSS. This syndrome should not be ignored as there are several other complications like Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, electrolyte imbalance, blood clots, kidney failure, ovarian torsion, rupture of blood vessels in the ovary, miscarriage etc associated with it.

What are the Symptoms of OHSS?

The following are some of the most common symptoms of OHSS-

Abdominal pain and cramps
Bloating of the abdomen
Nausea and vomiting
Diarrhoea
• Weight gain
• Breathlessness and wheezing
• A decline in the number of times you urinate

The severity of the ailment is not the same for all women. For some, it is short lived and dissipates in a week. But, if a woman becomes pregnant during this time, the symptoms may worsen.

When should you contact your doctor?

If your breathing problems become severe or if you feel a pain in your legs (because OHSS can lead to the formation of clots in the legs) you should immediately book a consultation with your doctor.

What is the cause of OHSS?

Doctors do not know exactly what causes Ovarian Hyper Stimulation Syndrome. Research links this disorder with excessive levels of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin Hormone. This hormone is produced during pregnancy. And during IVF this hormone is introduced in your body. The blood vessels inside the ovaries react unnaturally with this hormone and begin to leak fluids. And this leads to the swelling up of the ovaries.

The symptoms of OHSS manifest themselves within a week since the start of IVF. And if the woman conceives during the treatment, the symptoms become worse because now her body also starts producing Human Chorionic Gonadotropin Hormone.

Treatment for OHSS:

If your case of Ovarian Hyper Stimulation is mild, then you do not need medication. But if the symptoms persist, your doctor will prescribe pain-relieving medicines, anti-nausea medicines and IV fluid treatment. You may even have to be hospitalized where doctors will drain your abdominal fluids.

OHSS may be an outcome of IVF, but it resolves itself in a few days and even if it doesn’t, there’s medication and treatment that can cure it.

Dr, Please tell me, How does Vaginal Intercourse feels for Women, without Clitoral Stimulation?

The vagina has few nerve endings, and therefore cannot create an orgasm on its own. Instead of thinking of the vagina and clitoris as separate entities, try thinking about them as a network of nerves and muscles.

Hello sir, Please tell me is it possible to have full erection, without physical stimulation?

Hello sir, Please tell me is it possible to have full erection, without physical stimulation?
Hello- Yes it is possible. Erection at sleep or morning erection, and erection by getting sexual thoughts are such examples of it.
