How to Get Relief from PMS?

A lot of women are suffering from different difficulties before they get their period and these difficulties are linked to PMS.

PMS is an abbreviation used for premenstrual syndrome. PMS is actually a number of difficulties that occur in women usually around seven days before they get their period. In some cases the syndrome occurs as early as 14 days before the period. Although the experts cannot find the direct cause of these difficulties, the most probable cause is the changing of hormone levels that are taking place in the woman’s body in that period. When the menstrual cycle is in the middle, a significant rise of the female hormone progesterone can be noticed. 

The level of progesterone declines right before the period starts. At the same time another female hormone called estrogen shows decline in its levels. But it’s not only the hormone levels that affect the PMS. Things like lack of sleep and stress can also worsen the situation. Although PMS doesn’t affect all women, this syndrome has great impact even for the lives of those who live with persons that are suffering from PMS. However, it is good to know that these symptoms can be relieved by using some simple methods.
Women can easily determine if they have PMS. 

One very common PMS symptom is rapid mood change. Some women are very bad tempered and irritable while others get very emotional. Many women say that during this period they feel hunger and increased appetite and they feel need to consume carbohydrates. Other symptoms include: constant chest pain, bloated stomach and lack of enthusiasm. Some women experience skin problems like outbreak of acne and pimples. It is good to self-observe these situations because people can have this kind of periods regardless of their menstrual cycles. This is very useful if you want to determine whether your PMS has really started.

Although some medications can help you during this period there is no need to start taking medications when PMS starts. In many cases some simple changes in the lifestyle can ease the pain and make the symptoms go away.
For example, a change in the diet can bring many benefits. Fats and sugar should be avoided and consummation of complex carbohydrates rich in fiber should be introduced in your diet. Food rich in fiber includes whole grain bread and whole grain pasta for example. Food that contains lots of salt should also be removed from the diet because salt can cause additional feeling of flatulence. Instead of having 3 main meals have five or six smaller meals during the day. Minerals such as calcium can help you fight PMS symptoms too.

Although many women find exercising during PMS difficult, make sure you perform some basic physical activities during that period like walking and running. This physical activity will help you have a good night sleep which is also very important when we talk about PMS relief.

All these steps are very easy and they don’ require much effort, so remember that the only thing you can lose are the annoying symptoms of PMS.

Causes of Premature Ejaculation

I seriously doubt that there is a single man alive who has not had to deal with premature ejaculation at some time or another. In most cases it is nothing to worry about. It is part and parcel of being a man. Sure, it is something that you probably best want to avoid because for some men it can be quite embarrassing, but when it does happen it is sadly impossible to deal with. If it is only occurring once or twice every so often then you really have nothing to worry about. Some guys suffer this, some may have problem with hard erection, known as erectile dysfunction, and these are more common than you think. If your premature ejaculation seems to be occurring the majority of the time that you have sex then you may want to start thinking about how you can deal with it. On this page I want to talk to you a little bit about what is believed to be the ‘cause’ of premature ejaculation.

Now, it is worth noting that when it comes to premature ejaculation we really do not know what causes it. All we can do is offer ‘best guesses’ on why it occurs. The vast majority of sex experts out there believe that premature ejaculation is the result of early sexual conditioning. This basically means that men, when they first started ejaculating, felt rushed and thus they have continued this feeling throughout the rest of their life.

If you think about it logically, the first time that the vast majority of men will ever climax will be when they masturbate as a teenager. At that time it is likely that you are going to be doing it on a bit of a ‘down low’ and you really do not want to get caught. The result is that you really start to rush yourself. This is a thought that is likely to remain with you throughout the rest of your sexual life. Sure, it is something which can be conditioned away, but it is very difficult to fight in a few cases.

There has been limited amounts of research which seems to point to the fact that premature ejaculation may be the inherited (i.e. genetic) although as you can probably guess, there are very few father and son teams out there who are willing to come forward and say that this is a problem that they are dealing with, so it is unlikely that more research will be placed upon this.

The general idea used to be that anxiety or nervousness tended to be a major contributor towards premature ejaculation. Studies however seem to indicate that this is far from the case. In fact, it is very rare that somebody will ‘finish’ early simply because they are nervous about the situation (unless it is their first time!). I am not going to say that this is something which does not happen, it most likely does, however if you are suffering from premature ejaculation then it is likely to be down to early conditioning as opposed to anything else. As I said though, this is something which can be dealt with quite easily.

What you need to know about vasectomy

Many men have prejudice and mixed feelings when it comes to vasectomy. This fear and mixed feeling are usually based on lack of knowledge on this topic.

Vasectomy is actually a permanent method of contraception. This means that once a man decides that he is ready to perform it, there is no turning back – the process is irreversible. Even though, every year more and more men decide to have vasectomy, there are still some prejudices, fears and even myths about it. Of course, this is all normal because lack of knowledge can cause all these feelings and the best option to eliminate these things is learning few things about vasectomy.

Vasectomy is a term used to describe a minor surgical procedure, which in most cases is performed under local anesthesia. Medically speaking, vasectomy is a permanent interruption of the flow of sperm from the testicles to the urethra, or in simple words – the sperm is not released out of the hard erection penis during ejaculation. Having all these things in mind, one should be completely sure that he doesn’t want to be a father again. That’s why the medical staff is having consultation with the patient before they proceed with the surgery. In most cases, vasectomy is a choice for men who already have children but don’t want to have more children and in some cases there are men who are sure that they don’t want to have children at all. The procedure is very easy and painless (because of the local anesthesia) and it doesn’t require much time for recovery. The usual advice is to rest for a few days and not lift anything that is heavy. If you are considering permanent contraception with your partner, vasectomy should be one of your top choices mostly because of the simple procedure. For example, tubal ligation in women, also known as sterilization in women, is a procedure that is performed under complete anesthesia. Besides that it is more complicated and in many cases it has some side effects.

The most common problem in men and vasectomy is the fact that many men cannot even imagine someone with a scalpel getting near their genitals. In addition, many of them assume vasectomy will lose their manhood and they won’t feel like normal men. However, it is scientifically proved that those who have undergone a vasectomy don’t lose anything except the fact that their semen doesn’t contain sperms any more. There aren’t any changes in the mood, in the voice, in the sex drives and of course men will continue to grow their beard and body hair. Absolutely all sexual characteristics of men will remain the same as they were before the surgery. Even the amount of semen liquid will remain the same, because sperm is only a minor part of that liquid. Those who didn’t have any problems with harder erection also won’t have problems after the surgery.

Before you make any decision visit your doctor and preferably an urologist to get detailed and objective information. It's a good solution for contraception, you can have a direct contact without condom can make sex much better and most of the time guy can feel more sensitive and boost sexual desire.

Pull-out method as a type of contraception

This method that is also known as rejected sexual intercourse of withdrawal method has been practiced by couples for hundreds of years. But this still doesn’t make it a good contraceptive method.

Coitus interruptus is the medical term for this type of contraception and it was the main method of contraception for ancient civilizations and it didn’t take long until they’ve realized the connection between the sexual intercourse and conception. That’s why the’e started practicing sexual intercourses in which the man pulls out the penis when he starts to feel that the ejaculation is on its way. In this way the semen is released on the partner or next to her instead inside her vagina. In simple words, we are talking about sexual intercourse with pull-out method which prevents unwanted pregnancy. I tis interesting that this method is mentioned even the Bible.

When it comes to its efficiency, the pull-out method (coitus interruptus) has the highest rate of failure, because according to some relevant medical statistics 2 in 10 cases end in pregnancy. Stopping the sexual intercourse right before ejaculation is certainly not the most reliable method for protection against unwanted pregnancy and the main reason is not the ejaculation itself but the pre-seminal fluid that is released from the penis in the state of increased arousal. This liquid is released during the sexual intercourse without control and it is more present during the end of the sex act. This pre-ejaculate contains sperms and their number can be higher if the man has recently ejaculated and each of these sperms can be on its way to the eggs long before the man achieves orgasm. In addition, performing coitus interruptus requires ability of self-control in men. Inexperienced and young men often have trouble pulling out the hard erection penis during sex.

In the so-called pull-out method both men and women can experience the full pleasure of sex and they can both share the frustration because of the interrupted sex act in cases of conception. In many cases women want their men to stay longer inside them and men find difficult to resist. The biggest advantage of the pull-out method is that there is no need for additional input of hormones in the women’s body which is not the case when contraceptive pills are used. In this way you can also avoid allergies that are very common when condoms are used. Overall, the whole process feels more natural. However, besides the higher risk of unwanted pregnancy, the pull-out method doesn’t offer any protection against sexually transmitted diseases(STD). In some cases it can also contribute to constant sexual dissatisfaction because the partners are unable to relax when they are reaching intense orgasm.

The sperms are moving really fast once they are released and it takes them part of a second to reach the eggs. Although this method is not advisable, if you feel that this the best option for you try to practice it when the period of ovulation is finished. In this way you can significantly lower the chances of unwanted pregnancy. The advantage? The contact is direct and you can enjoy sex the best way, it can give you the biggest erection and some of the girls don't like condom too. This may be your solution as well.

Exercises that can help your sex life

Instead of going to the pharmacy you can always start exercising. Exercising is a natural way to improve your sex life. Any type of exercising is good for our general health, and since sexual health is part of the general health it is logical that your sex life will benefit from exercising. However, there are some exercises that are especially useful when it comes to improving sex life. By practicing these exercises you will improve your endurance, flexibility and you will be able to spice up the things that happen in your bed.

Flexibility exercises can be found in many sports and techniques and probably the best one is yoga. If you lack flexibility or you want to try some positions that require flexibility, start practicing yoga as soon as possible. Besides improved movement and flexibility, yoga can improve your strength and most importantly it can improve your sex life thanks to the breathing techniques and exercises for better balance and concentration. Those who are focused only on improving flexibility should do some stretching before training.

Strength exercises come in many forms – fitness, weight lifting or exercises without equipment – push-ups and/or sit-ups. We all know how these exercises are helpful for our look but they also raise the level of testosterone in the blood. Testosterone is an important hormone that plays essential role in the sex life in men. According to some experts even a short weight lifting exercise can instantly raise the level of testosterone in the body. Besides getting in shape and increased sex drive you will also experience improved stamina during sex.

There are some exercises that can be helpful with specific sexual problems like erectile dysfunction for example. Latest studies have shown that by practicing aerobic exercises such as running, fast walking, riding bicycle, men over 50 can reduce the chance of erectile dysfunction occurrence. Walking around 3 miles 3 times a week is something that anyone can do. These aerobic exercises are also good for the heart and the circulatory system which ultimately has effects on the blood flow in the penis. Exercise boost testosterone level and give you the biggest erection ever. During these exercises, endorphins are released in the system and they help us feel more relaxed and feeling relaxed is one of the most important things during sexual intercourse.

Older people (over 60) will find swimming especially useful for their sex life. Swimming is good for both men and women. Swimming 3-4 times a week for 30 minutes can make a huge difference. It improves the endurance and keeps the muscles in shape. In addition to strength and endurance, swimming helps the self-awareness which of course improves the libido.

The specialized Kegel exercises can be very useful for those who look for endurance. By strengthening the muscles which control the urination you will be able to control the ejaculation and lasting longer in bed. These exercises are especially interesting because you can practice them wherever you want.

Start practicing some of these exercises at least three times a week for 30 minutes and you will feel better about yourself and you will also make your partner happier.

How to Find the Right Condom?

Condoms are mechanical contraceptive that men apply on the penis before the sexual intercourse. The fact is that many men try to avoid using this contraceptive and the reasons for that are different. Some say that the condoms squeeze their penis; others have problems with the size of the condom. Furthermore, some men are suffering from allergies caused by condoms while others say that they don’t feel aroused after they place the condom. These are some of the reasons why men avoid condoms and there are many more. However, the condom is one of the best “tools” when it comes to sexually transmitted diseases as well as one of the most effective products for the prevention of mechanical pouring of sperm into the vagina (unwanted pregnancy). According to some statistics less than 10% of women who had sex with a partner wearing a condom end up pregnant. Now that we know how important condoms are in some situations let’s see how to choose the right one.

First of all, condoms can be found in many different sizes. There are condoms with a basic size (they usually adjust to the size of the penis) but there are also condoms with extra large size. Their length varies between 6,2 inches to 8,6 inches. The width can vary too – from about 1,9 inches and above, with some condoms designed in a way that the width is not equal to the head and the base of the penis, which allows better comfort and of course more sexual pleasure. In any case, choose a condom that is suitable for the size of your penis and be objective. Too big condoms can slip from the penis, while too small condoms can break easily.

There are different materials used for production of condoms. The most common materials used for condoms are latex, those based on animal tissues and on synthetic mass. All these condoms are successful when it comes to their original function (prevention against STD and unwanted pregnancy). However, condoms based on latex are especially useful against STD and the good thing is that they can be found everywhere. People that are allergic to latex can use condoms based on polyurethane. These condoms are very thin and that’s why they are used by men who don’t have problems with allergies. Polyurethane condoms are recommended for people who use creams and gels against fungal infections. Although oil-based lubricants generally don’t affect the integrity of polyurethane condoms, try to use lubricants based on water. Oil-based lubricants are dangerous for those who use latex condoms because they can break them.

Nowadays we can also choose from condoms that have different texture and even taste. Condoms can be smooth, wrinkled, ribbed etc. It’s a good idea to try condoms with different types of texture because they can increase the pleasure during the sexual intercourse. When it comes to the taste the best option is to ask the partner because after all she will be the one that will taste it.

Few things that you should know about perimenopause

The period in which the body prepares for menopause is called perimenopause. It is very important to recognize this phase because it will help you go through it more easily.

With the start of perimenopause, women enter a new phase in their lives. Perimenopause can sometimes last for few years before the final menstrual period appears. During the time of perimenopause, the ability of fertilization is lost and the woman enters the menopause. Menopause is characterized with permanent cessation of menstruation and cessation of cyclic activity of the ovaries in women. The onset of menopause can be determined when the women didn’t have menstrual period for at least one year. In most cases, menopause occurs after a woman turns 50 years. Most of the women are facing with more or less significant signs and symptoms of perimenopause. Some women experience menopause without any previous symptoms (without perimenopause). Most of these cases are related with sudden surgery that causes menopause. In these cases the symptoms appear suddenly and they are very strong. Natural Male Enhancement Supplement

According to some statistics, around 60% of women between 45 and 55 years experience one or more perimenopause symptoms. These symptoms or signs include – night sweating, anxiety, hot flushes, increased heart rate, increased blood pressure, depression, moodiness, irritability, weight gain etc. These are so-called early symptoms, the late symptoms and signs include – hair loss, dry skin, pain in the joints and the bones etc. During perimenopause which can last for few years, the ovaries produce less male and female hormones. This function of the ovaries is gradually taken over by other tissues and organs and even muscles. 

The success of these organs depends on the mental and physical state of the women. The menstrual periods may become scarcer, more powerful and shorter. When the body secretes only small amounts of estrogen and no progesterone at all, the bleeding stops. Few other functions that lead by female hormones are also interrupted. During this period around 70% of the women complain of mental and physical problems. It is important to understand that perimenopause is not an illness but women should be prepared for its effects. Because of the constant improvement of life expectancy it is getting harder to determine when menopause exactly starts.

Luckily, there are few things that can ease the difficulties that appear during perimenopause. For example, during the perimenopause it is very important for the women to get enough quality sleep. The reason for this is that a quality sleep is important for the work of adrenal glands. Another efficient remedy is sun exposure. Many researchers have proven that 10-20 minute exposure to sunlight three times a week can provide enough vitamin D for the body. This is very important for the bone structure. A healthy diet with enough vitamins, plant estrogens and minerals can also be very helpful. Smoking and alcohol should be avoided because they promote degradation of sex hormones. Physical activity like walking or swimming will help your body stay in good condition too. Herbal Sexual Enhancer

Intimate Hygiene for Men

Unfortunately intimate hygiene for men is a topic that doesn’t get the necessary attention and young men are usually left on their own when it comes to learning how to take care of their intimate hygiene. It is important to understand that intimate hygiene is essential for our overall health. This is the reason why you should learn few things that will help you with that process.

First of all, we will talk about washing the penis. In order to avoid odor and buildup of unwanted substances on the penis you must take baths regularly. These unwanted substances can be found under the glans penis.  Although it is usually completely harmless and natural you can remove it with proper intimate hygiene and make your intimate body parts smell more pleasantly. Of course, you should not perform excessive rubbing of the penis and use unsuitable and strong body lotions and gels, because they can worsen the situation. If you overuse this procedure, you start to feel itching and burning sensation in the penis and that’s why this whole procedure should be gentle and thorough. Remember to thoroughly wash the area behind the foreskin. This advice is especially useful for men that are not circumcised, because they often forget to pull the skin down and completely wash the penis. Always use lukewarm water during this process. If you are following these tips and your genital area still has odor you should see a doctor which will determine if you are having any inflammation or STD.

Many men find shaving pubic hair to be unusual and even girly. However, shaving the hair around the penis has some advantages and disadvantages. If you decide to shave the hair in this area use a razor, because wax requires high tolerance for pain and besides that the skin in this area is very sensitive. Don’t use extremely sharp razors and do it carefully. If you want to remove the hair with a wax you should be ready for possible infections. This kind of intimate hygiene has its own benefits. For example, your partner will certainly appreciate your move because it will allow her better access to the penis. Of course, the oral sex will be much more pleasant and you will prevent possible occurrence of bacteria that usually dwell in the hair. Furthermore, your penis will definitely look bigger without the hair.

After the daily intimate hygiene routine make sure you check the condition of your testicles. Take the testicles in your hands and carefully examine if there are any changes in the size, shape or maybe if there are any growths. These are some of the signs and symptoms of sexually transmitted diseases or testicular cancer. Don’t confuse the epididymis with some growth. The epididymis is part of the reproductive system that lying on the testicles. Epididymis looks and feels like a bent tube, which can be found on the upper side of each testicle. If you notice some changes like changes in the odor and color of the sperm, pain during the sexual intercourse, pelvic pain etc. seek advice from your doctor.
