The number of answers this doctor has agreed with.
A female asked:
Yes, it's unlikely: When a condom use used EXACTLY as intended, the failure rate is very low. It is said that only 2-3% of women become pregnant during an entire year of perfectly diligent condom use. Other contraceptive methods may be more effective. For a discussion of contraceptive failures with condom use, see http://goaskalice.columbia.edu/answered-questions/explanation-condom-failure-rates
A member asked:
Avoid this.: Most stoves burn natural gas (methane), but some burn propane. Breathing either kind of gas is unhealthy, because it lowers the amount of oxygen which is being inhaled. A few moments of exposure in a well-ventilated room is not an issue, but prolonged exposure (as you described) should be avoided. However, the symptoms are usually immediate, not delayed.
A female asked:
Not recommended: The likelihood of certain side effects, including dizziness, confusion and difficulty concentrating, may be increased by combining those drugs. Here is an article with more complete details: http://www.drugs.com/drug-interactions/amitriptyline-with-xanax-168-0-133-54.html
