lease share some useful information about male Contraceptive. What does it mean?
Contraceptive is normally aimed at helping women prevent unwanted pregnancy. Not much has been done in the past to develop products that men can use for pregnancy prevention. However, efforts are geared towards having a pill or injection for men.
Below are some of the options.
1. Condoms are the most common form of male contraceptive. If condom is used correctly, regularly and consistency, it has over 90% chance of preventing pregnancy.
2. A vasectomy is typically an in-patient surgical procedure that prevents sperm from traveling out of the testes. The procedure provides a permanent solution for protection against pregnancy. A vasectomy is about 99 percent effective as a form of contraceptive.
3. Male Contraceptive Pill. A male contraceptive pill isn’t available on the market yet, but it’s in the works. The pill would contain a dose of testosterone and taken consistently will significantly reduce sperm count as long as the pill is taken consistently.
4. Testosterone-Based Injections. Not yet in the market. Contraceptive injections are also being tested. Test results show that the shots successfully lower sperm count in participants.
hubby indirectly told me that my private part has an offensive smell which always puts him off. I am depressed and totally devastated, please enlighten me about this problem?
It is normal that the vagina has a certain odour sometimes. Whether this natural smell is neutral or not, it is a matter of personal judgment. In fact, some women notice their odour when there is no notable odour detected by their partners. However, if the odour changes and becomes strongly unpleasant (repugnant fishy vaginal odour), this change deserves attention because it is perhaps a sign of a vaginal infection. Left untreated, this condition may cause not only physiologic problems but also emotional stress and social problems (the person feels uncomfortable thinking the odour is detected by others).
The vaginal flora consists of a large number of microaerophilic bacteria. Among them, lactobacilli are considered the principal ones for their role in protecting the vagina. These micro-organisms are primarily responsible for protective acidity of the vagina. Washing the vagina too often increases its pH, which disrupts the vaginal flora and can cause vaginal infections and particularly unpleasant odours .
If the vaginal flora is disrupted, pathogenic bacteria proliferate, resulting in bacterial vaginosis. Besides excessive washing, douching, tight clothes and certain chemicals (scented body washes, antibacterial soap, etc) can cause vaginal infection or yeast infection. Foreign bodies in vagina can provoke vaginal odour and other major health issues. Vaginal and anal intercourse alternation during the same session can cause vaginal infection resulting in vaginal odour.
Infections that cause the odour are:
1. Bacterial Vaginosis 2. Chlamydia 3. Genital Herpes 4. Gonorrhea 5. Pelvic Inflammatory Disease
6. Yeast Infection
Some tips to address vaginal odour:
1. Wearing clean tampons and changing them regularly.
2. Avoid douching, it is not necessary; it can damage or destroy the normal acidity of the vagina resulting in vaginal problems (washing with chemicals).
3. If one suffers from any type of vaginal infection, it is recommended to avoid wearing tight underwear.
4. Wearing cotton panties is also important.
5. For some women, after intercourse, it is important to go and urinate. Urination after sex helps to remove any possible bacteria that may be outside or inside the vaginal canal that would go up in the urethra. Urination causes a cleansing effect, forcing the microbes outside.
