Positive attitude

Positive attitude
Negative thinking has more to do with your state of mind.
1. Develop self esteem and make friends with positive thinking people.
2. Every person is unique and nobody is perfect
3. Focus on your positive qualities and feel proud of your achievements
4 Don't keep doubting yourself.
5. Keep busy with your work and studies; maintain your schedule
6. Avoid fast food and eat healthy nutritious food.
7. Regular vigorous physical exercise is very important. With improved blood circulation, toxins will be eliminated from your body. You will become very energetic and your mind will become fresh as well as positive.
8. Maintain healthy habits and have adequate sleep
9. Keep helping others without any expectation and it gives immense satisfaction
10. If you still want some medicine, take alfalfa mother tincture 5 to 10 drops in half glass of water twice daily. This will be available in homoeopathic medical shop.

Dear Lybrate user, Though chances of pregnancy are low in case the condom is not worn at the beginning of the act, It is advisable to wear it. Chances of pregnancy are remote in your case.

OMG! . yes , movements reduce as pregnancy progresses towards term . But it should be monitored by a daily foetal movement count charting which the mother should keep. this can be specified over a consultation. An USG is also necessary to see the amount of liquor, and a doppler blood flow is also required to ensure safety of the baby.

I pill if taken within 72 hours will not fail. A girl can get pregnant before attaining menarche because ovulation may start first and then periods start.

Please tell me. When is the best time for having a quantitative Blood Pregnancy Test after sex for accurate result?

MBBS, PG Diploma in HIV Medicine
General Physician,
Please tell me. When is the best time for having a quantitative Blood Pregnancy Test after sex for accurate result?
Ovum or egg releases on 14 or 15th day from the first day of the menstruation in a woman having regular cycles. It servives for 24 hrs only but sperm survives 4 days after ejaculation inside the uterus. So if a person had sex between 10th to 17 th day of a monthly cycle then there will be more chance of getting pregnant and the period is known as unsafe period. Home based pregnancy tests look for urinary HCG for presence of pregnancy.. for accurate result we need to perform the test after stoppage of menstruation least for one time.. But the confirmation has to be done by physician only.. Contact for any further assistance

I had sex last night with ma wife after two month 4 days of baby delivery (delivery date is 6 feb 2016), I am afraid that is there any chance to get pregnant, because I dont know it was safe day or unsafe and bleeding cycle stopped on 16 to 18th march 2016, please help me.

MBBS .DGO.DA.(Trained in Andrology)
Gynaecologist, Ernakulam
Hi greetings. Since her delivery was on feb5th and if she is lactating frequently chances of pregnancy are less. Usually lactation suppress ovulation. But it is better to use condoms or to go for copper t insertion. We cannot guarantee that she won't conceive because in rare patients ovulation resumes early. So to make sure you can do a pregnancy test after 15days. Hope you are convinced. Regards.

This can happen either in early pregnancy or that the pregnancy has happened but could need certain medications by a gynaecologist to take it further.

Syphilis: Can This Sexually Transmitted Disease be Cured?

Syphilis: Can This Sexually Transmitted Disease be Cured?

Syphilis is a contagious disease that is sexually transmitted through oral or anal sex. The disease can even be passed from one person to another through kissing for a long time or through physical contact. A pregnant woman is at a high risk of passing the disease to her newborn which can cause abnormalities and even death of the baby. It is caused by the bacteria treponema pallidum.

Symptoms of syphilis

  1. Primary stage: the symptoms of syphilis are visible within three weeks which appears as a single and painless sore on the penis or inside vagina and rectum.
  2. Secondary stage: in the secondary stage, the symptoms manifest themselves as red or brown spots visible on soles of feet or palms of hand. They can be accompanied by fever, headache, swollen glands, fatigue and hair loss in patches.
  3. Latent stage: in this stage, a person has no symptoms but the infection is still present in the body.
  4. Late stage: this stage occurs 10-20 years after a person had first contracted syphilis. In this stage, the organs are severely damaged, including heart, brain and nervous system. It can cause paralysis or even death.

Can this condition be cured?

With a single dose of the antibiotic penicillin, syphilis is easily curable in its early stage. If the condition persists for over a year, additional doses might be required. It should be treated early to prevent further complications. There are other options for patients who are allergic to penicillin. Until the sore or rash heals completely, after the treatment of syphilis, you should abstain from having sex. If syphilis is left untreated, some severe and permanent damage can be triggered by it, including blindness, dementia or even death.

I had gone through your query and like to suggest you that you should go with everything that you like because its not like that what should you do at first night. It depends on you and your wife that what you both going to enjoy. It could be kissing licking and something else what you like. No one could suggest you better than yourself for this issue. Still I would like to advice to concern a good sexologist for the best advice. Hope you will find it helpful.

Myths Related to Blood Donation

General Surgeon, Delhi
Myths Related to Blood Donation

When you give some of your blood for someone else, it is called blood donation. It usually helps people who have lost quite a bit of blood in accidents or suffer from diseases, such as cancer or hemophilia, etc.

Like all activities related to medical conditions, there are myths related to blood donation too and some of them are:

1. Myth: Because you're a vegetarian, you don't have enough iron in your blood; so your blood isn't useful as donated blood.
Fact: The fact is that vegetarians can donate blood and their blood has enough iron, just as much as non vegetarians.

2. Myth: Infections, such as HIV can be contracted from donating blood.
Fact: This does not have a practical basis except for the fact that using contaminated needles might lead to contraction of the infections. However, usually fresh needles are used; therefore this never happens much.

3. Myth: Your health can deteriorate after you donate blood.
Fact: Your body produces new red blood cells as well as white blood cells after donation; hence your health doesn't deteriorate at all, except in cases where there is no rest taken at all after donation.

4. Myth: If you take medications, you cannot donate blood.
Fact: This is entirely dependent on your physician's advice. In case of some medications, you need to halt them in order to donate blood. In most cases though, taking medications does not prevent you from donating blood.

5. Myth: You will be unable to partake in physical activities after donating blood.
Fact: Heavy lifting should be avoided. Apart from this, donating blood does not stop you from physical activities. You need to rest for a while, but there is nothing about blood donation putting a check on most physical activities.

6.Myth: People with more weight have more blood to donate.
Fact: This is an entirely baseless assumption. Overweight or obese people are often unhealthy, so donating more blood has nothing to do with weight. Hence, obese people do not have more blood in their bodies as compared to their thinner counterparts.

We got intimate last sunday. She was a virgin and when I tried entering her, she asked me to stop, so I did that. That was just one point which involved penetration (unprotected) and I did not ejaculate at that time. Now she is 3 days late for her period and I confirmed, she was sometimes late in the past as well. I read on internet, that even pre-ejaculation is enough to conceive. The girl has PCOS and is not under any kind of medication. Should we wait or the pregnancy is confirmed. When would be the best time to visit gynaecologist in this case to get confirmed result and if she is pregnant, then abort as we both do not want this. Thanks.

Hello, If the girl is suffering from PCOS and had previous irregularities in menses thn it may be possible thatbthis delay is not due to pregnancy. First of all you did bot ejaculated inside the vagina secondly if you had thn also PCOS girls gace difficulties in getting pregnant due to irregular ovulation. So dont stress she is not pregnant.
