I had typhoid last month. I find that my sexual desire has reduced since then. Why?
The sexual desire/passion in an individual fluctuates from time to time. Most couples go through a low phase of sexual desire. Usually after a major sickness, the body takes few days to gain the vigour completely. You can wait for a few days. If your sexual desire doesn’t return to the pre-infection level, talk to your doctor. If your partner agrees, you can even try with mutual masturbation.

Who is a virgin?
Female, who has not had sexual intercourse till date. In females who have not had sexual intercourse, a thin fold of skin, medically known as the hymen, covers the vaginal opening. A gynecologist, after a thorough examination, can diagnose the intact hymen. The hymen may be ruptured even without a sexual encounter as in cases of heavy exercises, use of tampons or masturbation.

I feel I look like a girl. I am 30 but have no facial hair. Is this a male hormonal problem?
You need to discuss the problem with your family doctor. He may refer you to an endocrinologist. Male sex hormone is known as testosterone. Low levels may be due to various reasons. Some males may be suffering from atrophy, tumors and infections
of the testes. Pituitary gland dysfunction is another cause.
