Men’s Health

Men’s health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, as experienced by men, and not merely the absence of disease. Differences in men’s health compared to women’s can be attributed to biological factors, behavioural factors, and social factors (e.g., occupations).

Intravenous (IV)

What is a Vitamin Drip? The long history of safety and efficacy, the Intravenous (IV) Vitamin Drip delivers vitamins, minerals and amino acids directly to the body for maximum absorption. Through this process, the nutrients are delivered through your body enabling it to nourish itself at a cellular level.

 

IV fluids are specially formulated liquids that are injected into a vein to prevent or treat dehydration. They are used in people of all ages who are sick, injured, dehydrated from exercise or heat, or undergoing surgery. Intravenous rehydration is a simple, safe and common procedure with a low risk of complications.

 

 

How long do you stay on a drip for?

 

IV therapy delivers water, amino acids, minerals, and vitamins at a controlled rate. The procedure typically lasts between 45 minutes to an hour. That said, the procedure can be done more quickly or even take longer, depending on why you are undergoing the IV therapy.

 

Under what condition does a patient need to be on a drip?

A patient should be given a glucose drip when the patient is dehydrated. Glucose is a simple carbohydrate that can be easily absorbed by the body and provide instant energy. A glucose drip is also given when the patient is unable to take food orally.

Family Planning

Family planning is the consideration of the number of children a person wishes to have, including the choice to have no children, and the age at which they wish to have them. Things that may play a role on family planning decisions include marital situation, career or work considerations, financial situations.

 

If sexually active, family planning may involve the use of contraception and other techniques to control the timing of reproduction.

 

Family planning has been of practice since the 16th century by the people of Djenné in West Africa, when physicians advised women to space their births at three-year intervals. Others aspects of family planning aside from contraception include sex education, prevention and management of sexually transmitted infections, pre-conception counseling and management, and infertility management.

Family planning is sometimes used as a synonym or euphemism for access to and the use of contraception.

However, it often involves methods and practices in addition to contraception.

Additionally, many might wish to use contraception but are not necessarily planning a family (e.g., unmarried adolescents, young married couples delaying childbearing while building a career).

Family planning has become a catch-all phrase for much of the work undertaken in this realm. However, contemporary notions of family planning tend to place a woman and her childbearing decisions at the center of the discussion, as notions of women’s empowerment and reproductive autonomy have gained traction in many parts of the world. It is usually applied to a female-male couple who wish to limit the number of children they have or control pregnancy timing (also known as spacing children).

 

Family planning has been shown to reduce teenage birth rates and birth rates for unmarried women.

 

 

Importance of Family Planning

Family planning allows people to decide when and if to have children, using the information, means and methods they need to do so. Family planning involves a wide range of contraceptives, such as pills, implants, intrauterine devices, surgical procedures that limit fertility, and barrier methods such as condoms.
