All you need to know about orgasms

The orgasm is widely regarded as the peak of sexual excitement. It is a powerful feeling of physical pleasure and sensation, which includes a discharge of accumulated erotic tension.

Overall though, not a great deal is known about the orgasm, and over the past century, theories about the orgasm and its nature have shifted dramatically. For instance, healthcare experts have only relatively recently come round to the idea of the female orgasm, with many doctors as recently as the 1970s claiming that it was normal for women not to experience them.

In this article, we will explain what an orgasm is in men and women, why it happens, and explain some common misconceptions.

Fast facts on orgasms

  • Medical professionals and mental health professionals define orgasms differently.
  • Orgasms have multiple potential health benefits due to the hormones and other chemicals that are released by the body during an orgasm.
  • Orgasms do not only occur during sexual stimulation.
  • People of all genders can experience orgasm disorders.
  • An estimated 1 in 3 men have experienced premature ejaculation.

 

What is an orgasm?

Orgasms can be defined in different ways using different criteria. Medical professionals have used physiological changes to the body as a basis for a definition, whereas psychologists and mental health professionals have used emotional and cognitive changes. A single, overarching explanation of the orgasm does not currently exist.

Influential research

Couple sharing an orgasm

Alfred Kinsey’s Sexual Behavior in the Human Male (1948) and Sexual Behavior in the Human Female (1953) sought to build “an objectively determined body of fact and sex,” through the use of in-depth interviews, challenging currently held views about sex.

The spirit of this work was taken forward by William H. Masters and Virginia Johnson in their work, Human Sexual Response (1986) – a real-time observational study of the physiological effects of various sexual acts. This research led to the establishment of sexology as a scientific discipline and is still an important part of today’s theories on orgasms.


Orgasm models

Sex researchers have defined orgasms within staged models of sexual response. Although the orgasm process can differ greatly between individuals, several basic physiological changes have been identified that tend to occur in the majority of incidences.

The following models are patterns that have been found to occur in all forms of sexual response and are not limited solely to penile-vaginal intercourse.

Master and Johnson’s Four-Phase Model:

  1. excitement
  2. plateau
  3. orgasm
  4. resolution

Kaplan’s Three-Stage Model:

Kaplan’s model differs from most other sexual response models as it includes desire – most models tend to avoid including non-genital changes. It is also important to note that not all sexual activity is preceded by desire.

  1. desire
  2. excitement
  3. orgasm

Potential health benefits of orgasm

The male orgasm may protect against prostate cancer.

A cohort study published in 1997 suggested that the risk of mortality was considerably lower in men with a high frequency of orgasm than men with a low frequency of orgasm.

This is counter to the view in many cultures worldwide that the pleasure of the orgasm is “secured at the cost of vigor and wellbeing.”

There is some evidence that frequent ejaculation might reduce the risk of prostate cancer. A team of researchers found that the risk for prostate cancer was 20 percent lower in men who ejaculated at least 21 times a month compared with men who ejaculated just 4 to 7 times a month.

Several hormones that are released during orgasm have been identified, such as oxytocin and DHEA; some studies suggest that these hormones could have protective qualities against cancers and heart disease. Oxytocin and other endorphins released during male and female orgasm have also been found to work as relaxants.

Types

Unsurprisingly, given that experts are yet to come to a consensus regarding the definition of an orgasm, there are multiple different forms of categorization for orgasms.

The psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud distinguished female orgasms as clitoral in the young and immature, and vaginal in those with a healthy sexual response. In contrast, the sex researcher Betty Dodson has defined at least nine different forms of orgasm, biased toward genital stimulation, based on her research. Here is a selection of them:

  • Combination or blended orgasms: a variety of different orgasmic experiences blended together.
  • Multiple orgasms: a series of orgasms over a short period rather than a singular one.
  • Pressure orgasms: orgasms that arise from the indirect stimulation of applied pressure. A form of self-stimulation that is more common in children.
  • Relaxation orgasms: orgasm deriving from deep relaxation during sexual stimulation.
  • Tension orgasms: a common form of orgasm, from direct stimulation often when the body and muscles are tense.

There are other forms of orgasm that Freud and Dodson largely discount, but many others have described them. For instance:

  • Fantasy orgasms: orgasms resulting from mental stimulation alone.
  • G-spot orgasms: orgasms resulting from the stimulation of an erotic zone during penetrative intercourse, feeling markedly different to orgasms from other kinds of stimulation.


The female orgasm

The following description of the physiological process of female orgasm in the genitals will use the Masters and Johnson four-phase model.

Excitement

When a woman is stimulated physically or psychologically, the blood vessels within her genitals dilate. Increased blood supply causes the vulva to swell, and fluid to pass through the vaginal walls, making the vulva swollen and wet. Internally, the top of the vagina expands.

Heart rate and breathing quicken and blood pressure increases. Blood vessel dilation can lead to the woman appearing flushed, particularly on the neck and chest.

Plateau

As blood flow to the introitus – the lower area of the vagina – reaches its limit, it becomes firm. Breasts can increase in size by as much as 25 percent and increased blood flow to the areola – the area surrounding the nipple – causes the nipples to appear less erect. The clitoris pulls back against the pubic bone, seemingly disappearing.

Orgasm

The genital muscles, including the uterus and introitus, experience rhythmic contractions around 0.8 seconds apart. The female orgasm typically lasts longer than the male at an average of around 13-51 seconds.

Unlike men, most women do not have a refractory (recovery) period and so can have further orgasms if they are stimulated again.

Resolution

The body gradually returns to its former state, with swelling reduction and the slowing of pulse and breathing.

The male orgasm

The following description of the physiological process of male orgasm in the genitals uses the Masters and Johnson four-phase model.

Excitement

When a man is stimulated physically or psychologically, he gets an erection. Blood flows into the corpora – the spongy tissue running the length of the penis – causing the penis to grow in size and become rigid. The testicles are drawn up toward the body as the scrotum tightens.

Plateau

As the blood vessels in and around the penis fill with blood, the glans and testicles increase in size. In addition, thigh and buttock muscles tense, blood pressure rises, the pulse quickens, and the rate of breathing increases.

Orgasm

Semen – a mixture of sperm (5 percent) and fluid (95 percent) – is forced into the urethra by a series of contractions in the pelvic floor muscles, prostate gland, seminal vesicles, and the vas deferens.

Contractions in the pelvic floor muscles and prostate gland also cause the semen to be forced out of the penis in a process called ejaculation. The average male orgasm lasts for 10-30 seconds.

Resolution

The man now enters a temporary recovery phase where further orgasms are not possible. This is known as the refractory period, and its length varies from person to person. It can last from a few minutes to a few days, and this period generally grows longer as the man ages.

During this phase, the man’s penis and testicles return to their original size. The rate of breathing will be heavy and fast, and the pulse will be fast.

Causes

It is commonly held that orgasms are a sexual experience, typically experienced as part of a sexual response cycle. They often occur following the continual stimulation of erogenous zones, such as the genitals, anus, nipples, and perineum.

Physiologically, orgasms occur following two basic responses to continual stimulation:

  • Vasocongestion: the process whereby body tissues fill up with blood, swelling in size as a result.
  • Myotonia: the process whereby muscles tense, including both voluntary flexing and involuntary contracting.

There have been other reports of people experiencing orgasmic sensations at the onset of epileptic medicine, and foot amputees feeling orgasms in the space where their foot once was. People paralyzed from the waist down have also been able to have orgasms, suggesting that it is the central nervous system rather than the genitals that is key to experiencing orgasms.

Disorders

A number of disorders are associated with orgasms; they can lead to distress, frustration, and feelings of shame, both for the person experiencing the symptoms and their partner(s).

Although orgasms are considered to be the same in all genders, healthcare professionals tend to describe orgasm disorders in gendered terms.

Female orgasmic disorders

Female orgasmic disorders center around the absence or significant delay of orgasm following sufficient stimulation.

The absence of having orgasms is also referred to as anorgasmia. This term can be divided into primary anorgasmia, when a woman has never experienced an orgasm, and secondary anorgasmia, when a woman who previously experienced orgasms no longer can. The condition can be limited to certain situations or can generally occur.

Female orgasmic disorder can occur as the result of physical causes such as gynecological issues or the use of certain medications, or psychological causes such as anxiety or depression.

Male orgasmic disorders

Also referred to as inhibited male orgasm, male orgasmic disorder involves a persistent and recurrent delay or absence of orgasm following sufficient stimulation.


Male orgasmic disorder can be a lifelong condition or one that is acquired after a period of regular sexual functioning. The condition can be limited to certain situations or can generally occur. It can occur as the result of other physical conditions such as heart disease, psychological causes such as anxiety, or through the use of certain medications such as antidepressants.

Premature ejaculation

Ejaculation in men is closely associated with an orgasm. Premature ejaculation is a common sexual complaint, whereby a man ejaculates (and typically orgasms) within 1 minute of penetration, including the moment of penetration itself.

Premature ejaculation is likely to be caused by a combination of psychological factors such as guilt or anxiety, and biological factors such as hormone levels or nerve damage.

Common misconceptions

Young happy couple

A happy relationship is based on more than just the orgasm.

The high importance that society places on sex, combined with our incomplete knowledge of the orgasm, has led to a number of common misconceptions.

Sexual culture has placed the orgasm on a pedestal, often prizing it as the one and only goal for sexual encounters.

However, orgasms are not as simple and as common as many people would suggest.

It is estimated that around 10-15 percent of women have never had an orgasm. In men, as many as 1 in 3 reports having experienced premature ejaculation at some point in their lives.

Research has shown that orgasms are also not widely considered to be the most important aspect of sexual experience. One study reported that many women find their most satisfying sexual experiences involve a feeling of being connected to someone else, rather than basing their satisfaction solely on orgasm.

Another misconception is that penile-vaginal stimulation is the main way for both men and women to achieve an orgasm. While this may be true for many men and some women, many more women experience orgasms following the stimulation of the clitoris.

A comprehensive analysis of 33 studies over 80 years found that during vaginal intercourse just 25 percent of women consistently experience an orgasm, about half of women sometimes have an orgasm, 20 percent seldom or ever have orgasms, and about 5 percent never have orgasms.

In fact, orgasms do not necessarily have to involve the genitals at all, nor do they have to be associated with sexual desires, as evidenced by examples of exercise-induced orgasm.

The journey to an orgasm is a very individual experience that has no singular, all-encompassing definition. In many cases, experts recommend avoiding comparison to other people or pre-existing concepts of what an orgasm should be.

How does sex affects our brains?

Sex! Sex! Sex! Having sex can flavor our nights, and days, with sweet pleasure and excitement, relieving stress and worry. And, of course, sex has been key to ensuring that the human race lives on. In this article, we ask, “How does sex impact what happens in the brain?”

thirdone-890x395

Sexual intercourse is known to impact the way in which the rest of our body functions.

Recent studies have shown that it can have an effect on how much we eat, and how well the heart functions.

As we have reported on Medical News Today, sex has been cited as an effective method of burning calories, with scientists noting that appetite is reduced in the aftermath.

Also, a study published in the Journal of Health and Social Behavior in 2016 found that women who have satisfying sex later in life might be better protected against the risk of high blood pressure.

Many of the effects of sex on the body are actually tied to the way in which this pastime influences brain activity and the release of hormones in the central nervous system.

Here, we explain what happens in the brain when we are sexually stimulated, and we look at how this activity can lead to changes in mood, metabolism, and the perception of pain.

Brain activity and sexual stimulation

For both men and women, sexual stimulation and satisfaction have been demonstrated to increase the activity of brain networks related to pain and emotional states, as well as to the reward system.

This led some researchers to liken sex to other stimulants from which we expect an instant “high,” such as drugs and alcohol.

The brain and penile stimulation

A 2005 study by researchers at the University Medical Center Groningen in the Netherlands used positron emission tomography scans to monitor the cerebral blood flow of male participants while their genitals were being stimulated by their female partners.

The scans demonstrated that stimulating the erect penis increased blood flow in the posterior insula and the secondary somatosensory cortex in the right hemisphere of the brain, while decreasing it in the right amygdala.

The insula is a part of the brain that has been tied to processing emotions, as well as to sensations of pain and warmth. Similarly, the secondary somatosensory cortex is thought to play an important role in encoding sensations of pain.

As for the amygdala, it is known to be involved in the regulation of emotions, and dysregulations of its activity have been tied to the development of anxiety disorders.

An older study from the same university — which focused on brain regions that were activated at the time of ejaculation — found that there was an increase in blood flow to the cerebellum, which also plays a key role in the processing of emotions.

The researchers liken the activation of the cerebellum during ejaculation to the pleasure rush caused by other activities that stimulate the brain’s reward system.

"Our results correspond with reports of cerebellar activation during heroin rush, sexual arousal, listening to pleasurable music, and monetary reward."

The brain and the female orgasm

In a study of the female orgasm that was conducted last year, scientists from Rutgers University in Newark, NJ, monitored the brain activity of 10 female participants as they achieved the peak of their pleasure — either by self-stimulation or by being stimulated by their partners.

The regions that were “significantly activated” during orgasm, the team found, included part of the prefrontal cortex, the orbitofrontal cortex, the insula, the cingulate gyrus, and the cerebellum.

These brain regions are variously involved in the processing of emotions and sensations of pain, as well as in the regulation of some metabolic processes and decision-making.

Another study previously covered on MNT suggested that the rhythmic and pleasurable stimulation associated with orgasm puts the brain in a trance-like state. Study author Adam Safron compares the effect of female orgasms on the brain to that induced by dancing or listening to music.

“Music and dance may be the only things that come close to sexual interaction in their power to entrain neural rhythms and produce sensory absorption and trance,” he writes.

“That is,” he adds, “the reasons we enjoy sexual experiences may overlap heavily with the reasons we enjoy musical experience, both in terms of proximate (i.e. neural entrainment and induction of trance-like states) and ultimate (i.e. mate choice and bonding) levels of causation.”

Sex and hormonal activity

So what does this all mean? In essence, it means that sex can impact our mood — normally for the better, but sometimes for the worse.

couple kissing in bed

Having sex has repeatedly been associated with improved moods and psychological, as well as physiological, relaxation.

The reason behind why we may feel that stressimpacts us less after a session between the sheets is due to a brain region called the hypothalamus.

The hypothalamus dictates the release of a hormone called oxytocin.

Higher levels of oxytocin can make us feel more relaxed, as studies have noted that it can offset the effects of cortisol, the hormone linked with an increased state of stress.

Not only does oxytocin make us calmer, but it also dampens our sense of pain. A study from 2013 found that this hormone could relieve headaches in individuals living with them as a chronic condition.

Another study from 2013 suggested that a different set of hormones that are released during sexual intercourse — called endorphins — can also relieve the pain associated with cluster headaches.

Can sex also make us feel down?

The answer to that, unfortunately, is “yes.” While s3x is generally hailed as a great natural remedy for the blues, a small segment of the population actually report an instant down rather than an instant high after engaging in this activity.

This condition is known as “postcoital dysphoria,” and its causes remain largely unknown. One study conducted in 2010 interviewed 222 female university students to better understand its effects.

Of these participants, 32.9 percent said that they had experienced negative moods after sex.

The team noted that a lifelong prevalence of this condition could be down to past traumatic events. In most cases, however, its causes remained unclear and a biological predisposition could not be eliminated.

“This draws attention to the unique nature of [postcoital dysphoria], where the melancholy is limited only to the period following sexual intercourse and the individual cannot explain why the dysphoria occurs,” the authors write.

Sex may lead to better sleep

Studies have shown that sexual intercourse can also improve sleep. After an orgasm, the body also releases higher levels of a hormone called prolactin, which is known to play a key role in sleep.

Researchers from Central Queensland University in Australia also hypothesized that the release of oxytocin during sex may act as a sedative, leading to a better night’s sleep.

In the case of men, ejaculation has been found to reduce activity in the prefrontal cortex, which is a brain region known to benefit particularly from a good night’s sleep.

In sleep, the prefrontal cortex exhibits the slowest brainwave activity compared with other brain regions, which supports the proper execution of cognitive functions during the daytime.

Researchers say that sex may lead to better cognitive functioning in older age, protecting people from memory loss and other cognitive impairments. Studies have shown that “older men who are sexually active […] have increased levels of general cognitive function.”

For women, being sexually active later in life appears to sustain memory recall, specifically. These effects may be due to the action of hormones such as testosterone and oxytocin, which are influenced by intercourse.

So, next time you’re about to slip between the sheets with that special someone, just know that this moment of passion will spark a whole neural firework show, releasing a special hormonal cocktail that will, at its best, charge a whole set of biological batteries.

Pregnancy Test After Abortion – Am I Still Pregnant?

Now For various reasons our women out there find it worth to abort, here is another time of dilemma when and how do you confirm the abortion process was successful.

How do I know my abortion has been successful? Am I still pregnant after my abortion?

With questions like this in mind, the best way to get the reassurance that the abortion has been successful, especially if you have taken the abortion pill(s), is to do a pregnancy test.

Your pregnancy test after abortion

We advise that you take a pregnancy test 4 weeks after your treatment to confirm that your abortion has been successful and that your body is returning to normal.

False Positives

If you take the test too early, it may show a false positive. This is because the pregnancy hormone may still be present in your body.

Avoid digital pregnancy tests after abortion

Please be aware that it’s not advisable to take a digital pregnancy test after your treatment. This is because digital tests are very sensitive and may pick up even the slightest trace of pregnancy hormones in your body, anything up to 8 weeks post-treatment. So you might think you’re still pregnant when you are most probably not.

Understanding the pregnancy test results

A negative pregnancy result

If you’ve had no issues following your abortion – and have a negative pregnancy test – you do not need further follow-up.

A negative which then appears as a positive test result

If you get a negative test – which later appears to be positive – check whether or not you read the pregnancy test within the time stated on the packaging. Results read outside of the given timescale may not be reliable. If in doubt, repeat the test.

A positive pregnancy result

If you have a positive pregnancy test at 4 weeks after treatment – but do not have any pregnancy symptoms – take a second test at 5 weeks.

Can I get pregnant straight after my abortion?

Yes. It’s possible for women to become pregnant immediately following an abortion, so please ensure you do not have unprotected sex after your abortion. We offer a range of contraception options at the time of treatment.

The Emergency Pills and Contraception

Emergency contraception — also called postcoital contraception – is a form of birth control that may be used by women who have had unprotected sex or used a birth control method that failed.

The treatment generally is reserved for specific situations and is not a regular method of birth control.

Emergencies include being raped, having a condom break or slip off during sex action, or missing two or more birth control pills during a monthly cycle. Emergency oral contraception is used to prevent a pregnancy, not end one. They work primarily by delaying ovulation.

NOTE: My dear readers my audience Emergency contraception does not protect against sexually transmitted diseases. It is not RU-466/mifepristone, the medication used to induce abortions.

There are 2 types of emergency contraception:

• Pill form

• IUD

RELATED ARTICLE: READ THE EARLIEST SIGNS OF PREGNANCY – COULD YOU BE PREGNANT?

There are 3 types of emergency contraception in pill form that are sold both with and without a prescription. You need to be 17 to buy them if a prescription is needed. Depending on the brand and dose, you might get 1 pill or 2.

• Pills containing a hormone called levonorgestrel:

◦ My Way (over-the-counter)

◦ Plan B One-Step (over-the-counter)

◦ Preventeza (over-the-counter)

◦ Take Action (over-the-counter)

• Birth control pills can also be used as emergency contraception, but you have to take more than one pill at a time to keep from getting pregnant. This approach works, but it is less effective and more likely to cause nausea than levonorgestrel. Birth control pills require a prescription. Talk to your doctor or nurse to make sure you are taking the correct pills and dose.

• A third kind of emergency contraception pill is called ulipristal (ella, ellaOne). You need a prescription to get it.

Levonorgestrel is a specifically packaged emergency contraception. It is available to anyone over the counter without a prescription or age restrictions.

Ella is a non-hormonal pill.

It contains ulipristal, a non-hormonal drug that blocks the effects of key hormones necessary for conception. It is available only by prescription.

How Does It Work?

Levonorgestrel  emergency contraception may prevent pregnancy by temporarily blocking eggs from being released, by stopping fertilization, or by keeping a fertilized egg from becoming

implanted in the uterus.

Levonorgestrel is taken in one dose with one pill. Its effectiveness depends on how soon you take the pill. It should be taken as soon as possible — within 72 hours of unprotected intercourse. When Levonorgestrel is taken as directed, it can reduce the chance of pregnancy by close to 90%.

Ella can be taken up to 120 hours after sex. It is taken as one tablet in one dose.

An IUD can be inserted to prevent pregnancy.

The device works by stopping implantation of a fertilized egg in the uterus and must be placed within 5 days of having unprotected intercourse.

How Effective Is Emergency Contraception?

If levonorgestrel  is taken as directed after unprotected sex, it will decrease the chances of a pregnancy occurring. About 7 out of every 8 women who would have gotten pregnant do not become pregnant. However, research shows that levonorgestrel starts to lose its effectiveness in women who are overweight or obese.

Instead, an IUD is the suggested option in this group.

In two reported studies, Ella significantly reduced the pregnancy rate from an expected rate of 5.5% and 5.6% to 2.2% and 1.9%, respectively. In a pooled analysis of the data, the effectiveness did not fade for 120 hours after unprotected sex.

An IUD can be up to 99% effective when inserted within 5 to 7 days after unprotected intercourse.

Where Can I Get Emergency Contraception?

Emergency contraceptive pills (ECPs) are available at Planned Parenthood; college, public, and women’s health centers; private doctors; and some hospital emergency rooms.

Some doctors will prescribe ECPs over the phone and call the prescription in to a pharmacy. As mentioned above, levonorgestrel is available at pharmacies without a prescription.

[wp_ad_camp_2]

Who Should Not Use ECPs?

Levonorgestrel will not affect an implanted pregnancy. Ella should not be used by women who are already pregnant or may be pregnant. The risk to a human fetus is unknown. Animal studies have demonstrated risk of fetal loss.

Women who have a chronic medical condition should check with their doctor or health care provider before using this method of emergency contraception.

Are There Any Side Effects Associated With Emergency Contraception Pills?

The most common side effects associated with emergency contraception pills include:

1. Nausea

2. Abdominal pain

3. Fatigue

4. Headache

5. Menstrual changes

Ask your doctor or pharmacist about ways to reduce nausea. They may prescribe some anti-nausea medicine for you to take before you take an ECP.

Does It Protect Against Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs)?

No. Emergency contraception will not protect you from contracting an STD, such as HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. The best way to avoid getting STDs, is to limit sexual contact to one uninfected partner. If that is not an option, use a latex condom correctly every time you have sex.

Sugar Pregnancy Test – How to Perform It Procedure

I understand many of us tend to even fear buy pregnancy test stripes, here is your good news, you can use the sugar you have at home to find out whether you are pregnant or not.

It is said that only a woman can understand the exact feeling of being pregnant as it is one of the most important stages of their life. The first step of entering into this stage is the pregnancy test which will be conducted as soon as they have doubt of being pregnant. Sugar Pregnancy Test is a really test which can be done in home just with some sugar.

A lot of options are available for this among which we will recommend the home-based testing methods at the initial stages. Uktvnow app This has the benefit of doing the test in a very inexpensive way. There are also situations when some woman needs to check for pregnancy at multiple times. The home based pregnancy which is also known as do-it-yourself will be very useful for such people.

In previous article we gave detail about how to perform the Bleech pregnancy test. Sugar pregnancy test is also such a test which can be done in a very natural way without the inclusion of any chemicals. This helps to avoid the usage of any chemicals which may result in any health related problems.

As the pregnancy is a stage of life which required the carrying lady to avoid the usage of unwanted medicines and chemicals, the natural testing methods are the best one for them at this stage. As this is a very economical method and can be done without too much effort, you can even repeat it multiple times whenever you have doubt of pregnancy.

All you required to do this test is 2 -3 teaspoons of sugar and it is readily available in most of our houses. Those who get a positive result on this test are recommended to consult a doctor at the earliest. Because they are the ones that can guide you in the best way for the future steps that should be taken care. Online Sugar Pregnancy Test must be performed whenever you have any doubt about your pregnancy.

How to do the sugar pregnancy test?

For conducting the sugar pregnancy test what you required are some sugar and a well-cleaned bowl. It is recommended to use the white sugar rather than the others to have a better result. The bowl which will be used for this test should be well sterilized.

Otherwise, it may affect the result of the test. So, once you are ready with the above-said items, wait for some time until you feels to urinate. Now add 2 -3 teaspoons of sugar into the bowl. After that, it is recommended to urinate directly into the bowl rather than collecting it in some other vessels and dropping it into the bowl. This pregnancy test with sugar gives perfect and accurate reports.

How to Perform Sugar Pregnancy Test Properly Procedure

Now, wait for the response from the sugar that is added to the bowl. If the sugar is observed to be dissolved in the urine, then it can be confirmed that you are not pregnant. If it is not dissolved and is seen to clumps up then it is the indication that you are pregnant. If the result is found to be negative, you can try the same again in a couple of days. It is also recommended to do the test in the morning time with the first urine after waking up.

How does this Sugar Pregnancy test work?

It is the Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) hormone which is present in the urine of the pregnant women’s that helps in the reaction between the urine and sugar. If the urine contains HCG hormone, the sugar will clump, which will in turn considered as a sign of pregnancy. Apart from sugar, this hormone shows a good response to a lot of other substances as well.

This property of the HCG is made in use by the different home based pregnancy testing methods.

Conducting the sugar pregnancy test at a too early stage of the pregnancy will show a negative result only. It doesn’t mean that you are not pregnant. So, whenever you get a negative result don’t take a decision about the same.

It is recommended to try again with the same test method at multiple times with a gap of 2 -3 days. As the testing does not require you to invest any money for the same, you can do it as much as you like. It is also seen that for who are undergoing some medications, the result will not be the correct one. Also, the test conducted after too much consumption of water may also affect the result. Consider all these points carefully before you try the sugar pregnancy test. After you complete the test you will be amazed with the results for sure.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Sugar Pregnancy Test: –

Instead of using the modern pregnancy test methods, why people should use the sugar pregnancy test? There must be some strong reasons behind this. Let us have a look at the same. It is very difficult for the common people to continuously try the costly medical tests for confirmation of pregnancy. The sugar pregnancy test comes into their help at this stage. As this is very economical, you can try it as much as you want and it will cost you almost nothing.

Another advantage of the sugar pregnancy test is that it is very easy to perform. Even a housewife with less educational qualification can try this test and check the result quite easily. It is also seen that there are situations in life when a woman does not want to share the fact that she is pregnant. If trying to test for the same with some medical tests there are chances that others will also come to know about it. But by using home-based pregnancy test methods this risk can be avoided.

Along with some pros, the sugar pregnancy test has some cons as well. The most important thing that you should be aware of while doing this test is that the accuracy of it is a little bit less compared to the medical tests. However, if you find the result from the sugar test positive, you can check it again with the help of a doctor.

Conclusion: –

Tests like the sugar pregnancy test are the preliminary tests that can be done at the initial stages of pregnancy. Once you find that you are pregnant, don’t hesitate to consult a doctor at the earliest and take advice from them also.

What can I expect after I take the abortion pill?

You may feel tired or crampy for a day or so, and you’ll have bleeding and spotting for awhile. Most people go back to normal activities the day after a medication abortion.

How will I feel after taking the abortion pill?

How you feel during and after a medication abortion varies from person to person. On the day you take your second medicine, plan on resting and being in a comfortable place. You may feel tired for 1 or 2 days after, but you should be back to normal soon.

You can go back to work, school, driving, and most other normal activities the next day if you feel up to it. But DON’T do hard work or heavy exercise for several days. You should start to feel better as the days go by, but call your doctor or health center if you still feel ill.

After your abortion is complete, cramping and bleeding should lighten up as the hours and days go by. You may also have tender breasts, and they may leak a milky discharge. That should stop in a couple of days. Wearing a snug-fitting bra will help you feel more comfortable.

Any chills, fevers, or nausea you have should go away pretty quickly. Call your doctor or health center right away if you have nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or a fever for more than 24 hours after taking misoprostol (the second set of pills). It could be a sign of an infection.

Your doctor or health care center staff will give you written after-care instructions, and a phone number you can call with any questions about abortion pill side effects or any other concerns.

Follow all of your doctor’s directions during and after your abortion.

Make sure you go for your follow-up to confirm that your abortion is complete and that you’re healthy.

People can have a range of emotions after having an abortion. Most people feel relief, but sometimes people feel sad or regretful.

This is totally normal. If your mood keeps you from doing the things you usually do each day, call your doctor or nurse for help.

How will the abortion pill affect my periods?

It’s normal to bleed and spot off and on for several weeks after your abortion. You can use pads, tampons, or a menstrual cup —  whatever’s the most comfortable for you.

But your nurse or doctor may recommend you use pads for a few days after the abortion so you can track how much you’re bleeding.

Abortion starts a new menstrual cycle, so your period should go back to normal 4-8 weeks after your abortion.

How soon can I have sex after a medication abortion?

You can have sex as soon as you feel ready.

When can I start using birth control after my medication abortion?

You can start a new birth control method immediately after having a medication abortion. You can get pregnant very quickly after your abortion, so it’s a good idea to talk with your nurse or doctor about birth control as soon as you can — they can help you find a method that’s right for you.

How safe is the abortion pill?

Medication abortion is very safe. Serious problems are rare, but like all medical procedures, there can be some risks.

What are the possible risks of taking the abortion pill?

Medication abortion has been used safely in the U.S. for more than 15 years. Serious complications are really rare, but can happen. These include:

• the abortion pills don’t work and the pregnancy doesn’t end

• some of the pregnancy tissue is left in your uterus

• blood clots in your uterus

• bleeding too much or too long

• infection

• allergic reaction to one of the medicines

These problems aren’t common. And if they do happen, they’re usually easy to take care of with medication or other treatments.

In extremely rare cases, some complications can be very serious or even life threatening. Call your doctor or health center right away if you have:

• heavy bleeding from your vagina that soaks through more than 2 maxi pads in an hour, for 2 or more hours in a row

• passing large clots (bigger than a lemon) for more than 2 hours

• belly pain or cramps that don’t get better with pain medication

• a fever of 100.4 or higher more than 24 hours after taking misoprostol

• weakness, nausea, vomiting, and/or diarrhea that lasts more than 24 hours after taking the misoprostol

You should start to feel better the day after your abortion.

Feeling sick with nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, belly pain, or a fever for more than 24 hours after taking misoprostol (the second set of pills) can be a sign of infection. Call your doctor or nurse right away if you have any of those symptoms. Serious problems can cause death in the most rare cases, but abortion is typically very safe. In fact, pregnancy and childbirth is riskier than most abortions.

If you have complications during your medication abortion, you may have to go back to the doctor’s office or health center. In the unlikely event that you are still pregnant, your doctor or nurse will discuss your options with you. You may need another dose of medication or to have an in-clinic abortion to end the pregnancy.

Like all medications, the abortion pill isn’t right for everyone. The abortion pill may not be right for you if you have certain medical conditions or take certain medications. Your doctor or nurse will talk with you and help you decide if the abortion pill is the right option for you.

Does the abortion pill have long-term side effects?

The abortion pill is really safe and effective. It’s a super common way to have an abortion, and millions of people have used it safely.

Unless there’s a rare and serious complication that’s not treated, there’s no risk to your future pregnancies or to your overall health. Having an abortion doesn’t increase your risk for breast cancer or affect your fertility. It doesn’t cause problems for future pregnancies like birth defects, premature birth or low birth weight, ectopic pregnancy, miscarriage, or infant death.

Serious, long-term emotional problems after an abortion are rare, and about as uncommon as they are after giving birth. They are more likely to happen in people who have to end a pregnancy because of health reasons, people who do not have support around their decision to have an abortion, or people who have a history of mental health problems. Most people feel relief after an abortion.

There are many myths out there about the effects of abortion. Your nurse or doctor can give you accurate information about abortion pill side effects or any other concerns you may have.

Long-term relationship goals

In love lockdown

Developing a mutual sense of security is one to add to the books for long-term relationship goals.

Like not feeling threatened by other close relationships or attractive people in your partner’s life. #security

Speaking your own love language

The family

When your families automatically include both of you in all the plans and just presume you will be there, you have made it! Part of the family, your couple status is solid! #family

In your own bubble

In long-term relationship goals, creating your own world is one of the stepping stones to that magical place. It’s that intimate ‘only a couple themselves knows’ world – the words you use, the memories only you share, the personal details… As Keane sang, let’s go somewhere only we know. #bubble

Adventure together

Adventuring together breathes fresh air into a relationship. Couples hitting all the relationship goals do new things together. You don’t have to go skydiving to adventure together, but then again, why not? Do new activities, go to novel places, even if it’s a coffee shop down the street you’ve been meaning to try. And if you can travel, travel as much and as far as you can together. Newness and spontaneity keeps your love alive! #adventure

Spoil and surprise each other still

Sometimes do something so crazy and silly, the grand gesture leaves no doubt in your partner’s mind that they are loved. One way to remind your partner that you love them for real, for the long run, is just doing something for them that is ridiculous, over the top and that will leave you both a little breathless. Buy a giant teddy, order 300 flowers, blast a love song outside their window. Every once in a while, make your partner blush with attention and create a lifelong memory. #spoilt

Livewire

Connect when you communicate – listen, don’t just hear. Hitting the relationship goal high notes is about hearing the real message, not just the words, which are being communicated. Plug into the message below the words. #communicateforreal

Financial forecast

When it comes to money matters, be on the same page! Maybe it’s opening a joint bank account, planning to buy a house together or agreeing who’s responsible for which expenses in the house, but being in sync when it comes to your financial forecast is winning the long-term love game. #moneymatters

Lit up

Keep your physical connection as healthy as your emotional one. After all, we are physical beings. Send a naughty text message in the day, write a sexy love letter, surprise your partner with candles and a massage… lighting the fire along with the friendship is the long-term relationship goals to aim for in 2018! #sexytime

At its most basic, a relationship goal is an ideal, lesson, value or experience to aim for in your intimate partner relationship. Instead of being unattainable, it should be inspirational. Relationship goals are best viewed as a loose guideline on how to best give and receive love in your relationship, nothing more and nothing less. Just because you don’t have matching Bentleys, doesn’t mean you can’t be besties!

Two, not one

As a couple, becoming a single entity is an all too easy trap to fall into. All loved up, one can give up your own interest and pursuits, even social life. It is important in any relationship for each individual to maintain their own individuality and independence. Being together enough, you can feel comfortable enough to be apart, with two separate identities in the relationship.  #independence

Relationship-Goals

In sickness, and in health

Sometimes things are better, and sometimes things are worse. Sometimes your relationship is well and sometimes it is challenged. Sometimes you’re personally in a good place, and sometimes you’re in a difficult place. In a relationship, to be able to take the good with the bad is a true sign of strength. #allterrain

Date night routine

One of the most beneficial real relationship goals to nurture is to make a date night and stick to it. Date night keeps your partner feeling like a lover, gives you a chance to give each other some extra attention and establish the relationship as a priority in everyday life. It’s about making time for each other, be that out and about or at home, set the time aside for each other. #datenight

Handle with care

One of the ultimate couple goals is to really take care of each other. Put each other’s best interests high up in your decisions making factors. Handle each other’s heart space and emotions with respect and like your valued treasure, because what could be more precious?! #handlewithcare

Actively do things for each other

The simplest relationship goal is: don’t take each other for granted! Go out of your way to actively and consciously do, little and big, deeds for each other. #beactive

Honest to goodness

Real relationships are based on authentic people in everyday situations. The best version of you is the real version of you! Our relationship goals are to feel as comfortable in the no makeup, morning breath, sleepy face version of yourself as you do at any other time together #bereal!

Romance never goes out of fashion

Sometimes clichés come in handy. And it doesn’t even need to cost you – do the simple things that will make you both feel loved up. Stargaze, wake up early and watch the sunrise holding hands, have a bubble bath at home. Bring each other breakfast in bed. Be romantic, it is worth the effort. #romance

The trust test

If your partner left their phone within easy reach, and you were alone, would you snoop? Take a peek through their messages, calls or social media? Or are you secure in the reliability of your relationship? One of the fundamental real relationship goals is to have a solid foundation of trust that can stand the test of time. #trust
