4 Things You Should Know About Period Sex!

From a medical standpoint, intercourse during menstruation is completely fine. Most men have claimed that period sex seems messier when compared to intercourse on normal days but, other than that, there aren’t any risk regarding period sex. In fact, it is advisable to engage in vaginal intercourse during periods for a variety of reasons.

Here are a few things you should know about period sex:

  1. Intercourse during periods isn’t harmful: Contrary to the popular myth, period blood doesn’t contain impurities which might affect the penis in any way. Instead, menstrual blood is normal blood mixed with disposed off tissues from the lining of the uterus and the penis isn’t affected by menstrual blood in any way. The menstrual blood serves as excellent lubricant to make the process of intercourse smoother.
  2. Chances of pregnancy still persist: It is not okay to completely ward off protective measures during periods because even though it is safer than other days, there might be a small chance that the sperm of a man lives on in the female body till early ovulation. Besides, the chance of getting a sexually transmitted disease is the same during period sex.
  3. Can relieve cramps: Some women claim that having sex during their period helps ease their cramps as having an orgasm releases ‘pain- reducing endorphins’ into the bloodstream. Also, some medical practitioners believe that sex provides relief by using up chemicals which are responsible for cramps. Thus, having period sex can prove to be relaxing and less painful than normal days.
  4. Sexual arousal ups during menstruation: Most women feel hornier and more aroused during periods because of the increase in the hormonal levels. Some women feel heavier in the pelvic area which increases the sex drive; precisely the reason why having sex during this time is a good idea. So, for all you know, you might actually have a brilliant intercourse session when she’s on her period.

Endometriosis & Severe Menstrual Pain

Endometriosis & Severe Menstrual Pain

The tissue lining the walls of the uterus is known as the endometrium. This tissue is typically contained within the uterus but if it grows outside the uterus, it can cause terrible abdominal pain. This condition is known as Endometriosis. Endometriosis can involve the endometrium tissue spreading into the ovaries, fallopian tubes, and the pelvic area. In rare cases, it may spread to other organs in the pelvic area as well. If the displaced endometrium tissue affects the ovaries, it can also lead to the development of cysts known as endometriomas. 

Typically, the endometrium tissue inside the uterus thickens during the menstrual cycle and breaks down when a woman gets her period. In the case of endometriosis, the tissue growing outside the uterus behaves in the same way as the tissue growing within the uterus. However, when it breaks down, the displaced tissue has no way of exiting the body. Thus it irritates the surrounding tissue and eventually turns in to adhesions and scar tissue which in turn causes the internal organs of the pelvic area to stick to each other. This is the primary cause of pain associated with Endometriosis. It may also cause fertility issues. 

Many women complain of cramps during their menstrual periods but for women suffering from endometriosis, the pain is much more intense. This pain also usually increases with time. Menstrual cramps associated with endometriosis may begin before the period starts and persist even after the woman’s period is over. It may also be accompanied by lower back pain. Let's know its symptoms- 

  1. Painful periods (dysmenorrhea). 
  2. Pain with intercourse. 
  3. Pain with bowel movements or urination. 
  4. Excessive bleeding 

Other symptoms- 

  1. Fatigue 
  2. Diarrhea 
  3. Constipation 
  4. Bloating or nausea, especially during menstrual periods. 

The severity of pain is not always in direct relation to the severity of endometriosis. Some women may suffer from advanced endometriosis but experience slight pain while in other cases; women suffering from a mild form of endometriosis may experience severe pain. Some women may also experience no pain at all. 

Thankfully this pain can be easily managed. In most cases, over-the-counter pain relievers are effective enough. If these medicines are not effective, the patient may be advised to undergo hormone therapy. This slows down the growth of endometrial tissue and keeps new tissue from growing outside the uterus. In cases of severe pain, surgery may be needed to remove the endometrial tissue growing outside the uterus. This procedure may be performed laparoscopically.

Postpartum Menstrual Pain - Why Does It Occur?

Having a child is one of the best things that can happen to a woman. While giving birth to a child is a very happy scenario, something called ‘postpartum menstrual pain’ can act as a damper. Postpartum menstrual pain occurs during the first period post-delivery. To understand it in a better way, here is a detailed overview that should help you out:

Period after childbirth
Periods usually return after 7-8 weeks of the delivery, provided there is no breast feeding. If you breast feed, then the timing of the period can vary. In some cases, a woman misses out on her periods for the entire duration of breast feeding; whereas in others, the period returns irrespective of whether she is breast feeding or not.

Once the periods start post-delivery, tampons are recommended against. Women who are breastfeeding don’t usually have their periods due to hormonal changes in the body. Hormones that induce periods are suppressed by the hormones which are responsible for the production of breast milk. The entire process of ovulation gets suppressed, thus leading to the absence of menstruation.

Difference in periods
Once your periods begin after the delivery, it will be different from the ones you have had before childbirth. As the body adjusts to the menstruation process post childbirth, one generally experiences the following symptoms:

  1. Stronger cramps
  2. Heavy menstrual flow
  3. Formation of small blood clots
  4. Pain during periods

Postpartum menstrual pain happens because of the following reasons:

  1. Pain in the vaginaThe childbirth process may lead to swelling and stinging in the vagina. Painful periods will persist till the swelling subsides.
  2. Contractions of the uterus: Post childbirth uterus contractions are common as it comes back to its regular size; this may be a source of the pain.
  3. Breast feeding: Breast feeding can also trigger menstrual pain as it results in the release of ‘oxytocin’, which causes contractions in the uterus.

This problem of painful periods doesn't last longer.

वुमेन्स मेंस्तुराशनल हाइजीन टिप्स - Women's Menstruational Hygiene Tips In Hindi!

किसी भी स्त्री के यौवन की शुरुआत शारीर में कई परिवर्तनों और विकास का सूचक होती है. हालांकि इस बदलाव के साथ ढलने में थोड़ा समय अवश्य लगता है. ये बदलाव सिर्फ शारीरिक और बौद्धिक ही नहीं होता है बल्कि कई बार तो इसकी वजह से स्त्रियों की पूरी दिनचर्या बदल जाती है. माहवारी या मासिक धर्म के दौरान तनाव और दर्द से बचने का सबसे बेहतर तरीका है कि उन दिनों में साफ़-सफाई और स्वच्छता का विशेष ध्यान रखा जाए. सैनिटरी नैपकिन्स के इस्तेमाल से लेकर उन्हें सही तरीके से नष्ट करने तक ऐसी कई चीज़ें हैं जो हमें याद रखनी चाहिए. तो आइए इस लेख के माध्यम से हम आपके “महीने के उन दिनों” में हाइजिन रहने के लिए कुछ बहुत आसान से टिप्स बताएं.

1. टैम्पोंज की जगह मेनस्ट्रूवल कप इस्तेमाल करें
टैम्पोंज कीके बदले मेनस्ट्रूवल कप ज़्यादा आरामदायक होते हैं. क्योंकि कप्स ब्लड फ्लो को सोखने की बजाए उसे इकट्ठा करने का काम करते हैं. यानी इसमें लीकेज की संभावना नहीं है और आपको हर आधे घंटे में बदलने के लिए बाथरूम नहीं जाना पड़ता है. इसके अलावा टैम्पोंज आपको पीड़ादायक और शुष्क महसूस करा सकते हैं.इसलिए जिन स्त्रियों को हैवी फ्लो होता है उनके लिए कप्स निश्चित रूप से बेहतर विकल्प हैं.

2. खुजली से बचने के लिए सैनिटरी पैड्स को सही तरीके से लगाएं
यदि आप सैनिटरी पैड्स का इस्तेमाल कर रही हैं तो इससे जुड़े एहतियातों का बेहद सावधानी से अनुसरण करें. पैड्स को सही से पहनने के लिए पर्याप्त समय लें क्योंकि अगर वो सही तरीके से नहीं लगेगा तो खुजली होने होने की संभावना में वृद्धि हो जाती है. इसका कारण ये है कि स्त्री जननांग बहुत गिला होता है. लेकिन याद रहे आवश्यकता पड़ने पर चिकित्सकीय सहायता भी ले लेनी चाहिए.

3. सुरक्षा के लिए जनानंग के बाहरी हिस्से को रखें साफ़
हालांकि ये सही है कि मादा जनांग खुदबखुद साफ़ होता रहता है लेकिन फिर भी कभी-कभी हल्के गुनगुने पानी से इसके बाहरी हिस्से को साफ़ करते रहना आवश्यक है. लेकिन अंदर साबुन का इस्तेमाल न करें. इसके बदले में यदि आप चाहें तो महिलाओं के लिए बाजार से मिलने वाले स्वच्छ उत्पाद ले सकती हैं. यूरिनरी ट्रैक्ट इन्फ़ेक्शन से बचने के लिए इस बात का ख्याल रखें की पानी जननांग से एनल एरिया की तरफ जाए न कि इसका उल्टा.

4. पीरियड्स के लिए अलग अंडरवियर रखें “हमेशा”
मेनस्ट्रूएशन के दौरान पैंटीज को दागों से मुक्त रखना मुश्किल है. ऐसा तब और होता है जब काम से बाहर होती हैं या दफ्तर में या कहीं और होती हैं. इसलिए यदि आप दो या अधिक अंडरवियर रखेंगी तो आपको आसानी होगी. हालांकि इन पैंटीज को बाद में गर्म पानी से ठीक से साफ़ करके ही इस्तेमाल करना चाहिए.

5. पीरियड के दिनों में अपनी चादर को बदलते रहें
रात में कभी लीकेज होना सामान्य बात है. गंदगी और संक्रमण से बचने के लिए अपनी चादर बदलती रहें. चादर को धोने के लिए डेटॉल या किसी भी दूसरे सैनिटाईजर का इस्तेमाल करें. इसके अलावा अपने इनरवियर को भी बदलती रहें. जिन लड़कियों को ज़्यादा पसीना आता है, वो जितना ज़्यादा अपना इनर वियर बदलेगी (बजाए उन्हें पूरे दिन पहनने के), उतना ही उन्हें आरामदायक महसूस होगा.

6. कसरत के बाद जननांग की सफाई न भूलें
अगर आप पीरियड के दिनों में योगा या किसी भी प्रकार की माइल्ड कसरत करती हैं, तो कपड़े बदलना और नहाना न भूलें क्योंकि कसरत के कारण पसीना इकट्ठा हुआ होगा, जिससे जीवाणु संक्रमण हो सकता है.

7. खानी पिने से पहले हाथों की ठीक से सफाई करें
पीरियड के दिनों में कुछ भी खाने या पीने से पहले अपने हाथों को साबुन या हैंड सैनिटाईजर से धोना न भूलें. ऐसा करने से आप कई अनावश्यक बीमारियों से बच जाते हैं.

8. सैनिटरी पैड्स या टैम्पोंस को उचित निपटारण करें
सैनिटरी पैड्स या टैम्पून्स को कूड़ेदान में डालने से पहले उन्हें अच्छे से ढकना न भूलें. उन्हें कभी भी फ्लश न करें, चाहें आप कितनी भी जल्दी में हो.

Light Periods In Women - What Causes It?

Light Periods In Women - What Causes It?

Light periods refer to menstrual periods that have very light flow and are characterized by a lesser number of days than usual. Although the menstrual cycles vary from a woman to another, the duration for a normal period is around every 28 days. Each period lasts for approximately four to seven days. The amount of blood loss in a normal period is around 20 ml to 80 ml. However, loss of blood below 20 ml can be considered as light periods.

The causes of light periods can vary for different woman. Some of them are:

  • An imbalance in hormone levels in the body like PCOD (polycystic ovarian disease).
  • Light periods are most common in women who are approaching menopause. This is because, at this time, women tend to produce less estrogen, a hormone responsible for regulating menstrual periods.
  • Light periods can be common in girls who have just started to menstruate.
  • Excessive bouts of exercise, a thyroid condition or an eating disorder can be also responsible for light periods in women.
  • Women who use hormonal or oral contraceptives may also have a chance of experiencing light periods.
  • An important cause of scanty menses is implantation bleeding. That means sometimes, despite being pregnant, little amount of bleeding can happen at the expected time of menses in the first three months of Pregnancy. So it's important to rule out pregnancy at the earliest.

Certain symptoms usually follow light periods. These symptoms vary according to the underlying causes of this condition.

Some of the common symptoms which accompany light periods are:

In some cases, light periods might turn out to be a sign of a fatal condition that should be immediately administered to. An example of such would be an ectopic pregnancy, which can cause light or heavy bleeding. Although light periods are rarely due to serious diseases, neglect can lead to heightened complications and irreversible damage.

Some of the complications can are:

  1. Serious discomfort and pain
  2. Difficulty in conception or infertility
  3. Osteoporosis and osteopenia

6 Ways To Treat Heavy Bleeding During Menses!

Menstruation is the monthly discharge of blood from the vagina, which lasts for about 5 to 6 days. It is the shedding of the inner lining of the uterus, when pregnancy does not occur after the release of egg from the ovary. Menstrual periods are generally often accompanied by painful cramps in the lower abdomen, heavy bleeding, weakness, water retention, irritability and malaise.

What is Menorrhagia?

Very heavy or prolonged periods are medically termed as menorrhagia. It is abnormally heavy bleeding if there is a requirement to change sanitary napkins or tampons several times within a very short span of time. Passing large blood clots, night time bleeding, bleeding for over 7 -8 days, are other symptoms that one might be suffering from menorrhagia.

Common Causes Behind It

  1. Menorrhagia is mostly a cause of hormonal imbalance, particularly in the levels of estrogens and progesterone.

  2. Fibroids, cysts or polyps in the organs of the reproductive system, which includes the uterus, ovaries or fallopian tubes.

  3. History of miscarriage or failed pregnancies.

  4. Use of contraceptives

How can you treat heavy bleeding during menses

  1. Change of diet: You must include more minerals, iron, magnesium and calcium in your diet. Your diet must comprise a lot of green vegetables, fresh fruits and dairy products.

  2. Some non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen may be prescribed to reduce the blood loss.

  3. Certain hormonal therapies to regulate the hormonal imbalances and menstrual irregularities.

  4. Home remedies such as intake of certain herbs, ginger and coriander seeds help to control heavy bleeding.

  5. Increasing magnesium intake to balance out levels of oestrogen.

  6. It is best to stick to natural remedies, as it generally does not create complications in other bodily functions.

If the bleeding cannot be controlled even after a change of diet and home remedies, you must visit the gynaecologist as soon as possible. Heavy bleeding is a serious problem, especially if accompanied by dizziness, fluctuations in the blood pressure, nausea and weight loss. Severe cramps and constant bleeding can hinder daily routine, therefore, the earlier you receive medical attention, the quicker you will get relief.

Body Massage - 9 Benefits That Make It Super Important!

In order to know the benefits of abhangya, it is important to understand what exactly abhangya is. We do, at times, massage ourselves unconsciously. However, the practice of massaging oneself from head to toe with nice and warm oil lovingly is known as abhangya. According to Ayurveda, like being loved by another person, abhangya too provides individuals with a deep sense of stability. Ayurveda states that daily practice of abhangya helps in restoring the balance between the three doshas of our body - the pitta dosha, kapha dosha and vata dosha.

Ayurveda states that the individuals who practice this self massage technique regularly become vey less affected and even less subjected to accidental injuries. These individuals also tend to become charming and very less affected by age. Now that we have discussed a bit of what abhangya is, here is a list of the benefits that come with it. 

  1. This self massage technique helps in nourishing the body and slowing down the ageing process considerably.
  2. This technique helps in bestowing individuals with good vision.
  3. This process helps in stimulating the internal body organs and increases and improves blood circulation. This results in lesser blood pressure and a healthier body.
  4. This technique helps in imparting a sort of firmness to the limbs and hands, thereby strengthening the body’s tolerance.
  5. This technique also benefits the skin. Well, the thing about our body is each organ in our body is interrelated with each other. So when any one organ starts working perfectly, everything else follows suit. It has been seen that this technique helps impart a sort of tone and vigour to the tissues of the body itself.
  6. Abhangya helps pacify the vata and the pitta doshas.
  7. If applied to the scalp, it helps in growing luxurious, soft, thick and really glossy hair.
  8. This is also said to reduce wrinkles on the face.
  9. When applied to the ears, stiffness of neck and jaw can be eased.

We have discussed how this practice benefits us, but here are some of the situations when we aren’t supposed to perform abhangya.

  1. During menstrual cycle
  2. During pregnancy
  3. In swollen or painful areas
  4. Over skin that has any sort of rash or infection
  5. During any acute illnesses
  6. During any health condition until and unless the doctor said that it was perfectly fine to do abhangya

All in all, Abhangya is a process that should definitely be carried out for personal well-being.
