Are vasectomies dangerous?

Strange as may sound there are many men nowadays as those in the past, who have decided for all their intents and purposes to tie their ducts. There are many reasons why a man may decide to do so. But the most common reason is that they want to stay sexually active without the risk of impregnating their partners.

There are other ways to stop this such as the partner simply using birth control methods, or both may explore other ways to prevent pregnancy. What you should know is that you should avoid vasectomy at all costs. Sure, it might seem like a good idea now. After all, since it is a way to stop the flow of sperm permanently, but there are also many dangers of vasectomy that you need to know before making such a decision.

Apart from the fact that it leads to permanent change that you may not take back, there are a number of other things to consider. Some of these include major health complications. If you are not worried yet, you should be. Some of these complications can be disastrous, not even to mention painful.

Some of these risks include the worries about unilateral eruptions of the epididymis, a condition where the tubes burst after being tied. The next risk is that of the body autoimmune response. This is where there is no exit strategy because the sperms are still produced. It will get backed up and your body will determine that the sperm is a germ or disease and the body will try to fight off the germs thus putting pressure on your testicles. We should also point out that with a vasectomy, it isn’t the “be all and end all.” For example, many men choose to undertake a vasectomy reversal, but this again reiterates how important a decision it is to have a vasectomy, because it’s an expensive procedure to reverse it.

There is also not a guaranteed success rate with either a vasectomy or a reversal, so do you really want to spend money or even undertake on the NHS knowing there’s a small chance it’s not going to have the effect you want. How terrible would it be for you to say you have absolutely no chance of impregnating your partner, only to find she falls pregnant a few months after the procedure. That’s’ actually happened for many couples so do appreciate it’s not guaranteed to take.

These are just some of the dangers of vasectomy that you need to worry about. You are free to take this procedure if you wish, but it is advisable to look for alternative methods before choosing this surgery. This procedure is unnecessary, and in my opinion, dangerous. We hope that the future will be a brighter place where common sense is placed above relevance and where the ethics of medicine are restored or revised.

Staying Fit With A Busy Schedule

Some people do not have time to spend at the gym and take care of their families at the same time. No matter which group you’re in, here are some tips to help you stay fit when you work for long hours.

You can do something for the environment and the heart at the same time by taking the bus instead of the car to work. You have to walk to and from the bus station every day. You may not think this is doing much but his experience for three months helps every bit. If your mobility involves the subway you have the added benefit of climbing stairs twice a day as well.

Reduce or eliminate all junk food, this also includes soft drinks. When you get hungry, instead of burgers or hot dogs, try apples instead. When you’re in the mood for some midday coffee(or tea) drink about two glasses of water instead.

Why the word “Diet” should be banned

The word ‘diet’ is so negative we don’t feel as though it should be used anymore, and below are a few reasons why.

Dieting is temporary. Whenever someone says they are on a diet, it means they are changing their eating habits for a short period of time. That’s not healthy in the long run and by using the word diet you’re always doomed to fail. Being healthy is all abut eating healthy and creating a much healthier lifestyle all round. If you really want to have a body that is happy, start creating tasty dishes with healthy ingredients, stocking up on protein, fibre and good fats. You should wake up wanting to be healthy and not sticking to a food plan that you absolutely hate. Living healthy doesn’t have to be hard, or troublesome, it just takes some getting used to. The healthiest people in the world are those that embrace healthy living as a whole.

Getting fit with a push, pull and legs routine

Have you ever heard of a push, pull and legs workout routine? It’s basically a way of working all of the major muscle groups.

  • A pull day would involve working the biceps and back.
  • A push day involved working the chest, shoulders and triceps.
  • And leg day is, of course, all related to building leg muscles.

By splitting up these muscle groups into activities, it’s incredibly easy to follow, whilst you’re able to get back in the gym the next day by working on a completely different set of muscles, whilst you’re still recovering from the previous workout. It can be a good idea to start by doing 3 days a week and then try to move on to 6 when you feel ready. By working all of these muscles, eating the right food and consuming enough protein, you can quickly build strength and grow in size.

Are daffodils good for you?

As many people know, daffodils are generally referred to as flowers or plants that you can add to your garden during the springtime, and they grow in many different parts of the UK, so it’s not uncommon to see them from March onwards. That said, what not everyone does know, is that many people use daffodils to create medicine. The bulb, leaf and the flower are used to make the medicine, so what are the so-called health benefits: (more…)

Binge Eating: Why you should avoid going over the top at Christmas

Christmas is a time to indulge in sweet treats and calorific foods that are so comforting and warming. That’s what the adverts tell you at least, but don’t accept this. One month of going overboard on fatty foods can be detrimental to your health, and it can undo the amazing work you’ve achieved in recent months. There’s time for the odd mince pie or Christmas cake, and of course the turkey, stuffing and ‘pigs in blankets’ on Christmas day, however, this does not mean that you need to binge-eat for the entire month just because ‘it’s Christmas’. Take it easy and remember that your body still needs good fibre and nutrition, so keep those veggies, nuts, greens, fruits and proteins coming your way. Keep exercising too, and your body will thank you in January when everyone else in your workplace is left heavy footed, bloated and napping!
