A 27-year-old male asked:

is it safe to get vaccines at a pharmacy like cvs for example? i'm 26 male good health. know i'm due for a tetanus but what else would be good?

My opinion: The second part of your question is exactly the problem with pharmacies giving vaccines.Most of the time you don't know everything you need, and they certainly don't.They have no way to verify what you have had in the past and when, and thus what you are due for. It takes away that consultation from your primary physician who can help you decide what is right for you. While safe, likely incomplete.

A 48-year-old member asked:

Do men often start balding at the crown?

1 doctor answer4 doctors weighed in
Dr. Richard Ruden
Dentistry 38 years experience
Varies: More than 95% of hair thinning in men is male pattern baldness, or androgenetic alopecia. Male pattern baldness is characterized by hair receding from the lateral sides of the forehead (known as a "receding hairline") and/or a thinning crown (balding to the area known as the ‘vertex’). Both become more pronounced until they eventually meet, leaving a horseshoe-shaped ring of hair back of head.

Can I postpone vaccines for my child to lower the risk of autism?

Not a good idea: In less there is an actual reason to not have vaccinations, like for example, you have another child who had some sort of severe reaction following vaccinations, it is not a good idea to avoid vaccinating children at the appropriate ages. In order to maintain what is known as: herd immunity, the vaccination rate in the general population needs to be 95%. Vaccinations save lives.

Dr. Simon Kimm
Urology 16 years experience
Tools for assessment: A voiding diary, or bladder diary, is a way to relate fluid intake with voiding behavior. It is usually performed over 24 or 48 hours, and the time and amount fluids are taken, the time and amount of voids, and any episodes of leakage or symptoms are noted. Doctors use this data to find patterns and help to diagnose problems in urine storage and voiding.

Male infertility runs in my family. Is it possible to be tested prior to trying to have a baby?

Yes: Get a semen analysis at an infertilty office not a lab because an infertilty sub specilaist will have certified andrologist on staff to properly analyze the specimen.
