Symptoms??: Or do you have it? , you need to get a trich culture done to see if you really have it , because you can get bacterial vaginosis without having intercourse and the symptoms can be similar to trich so you need to see your gyn or a different one for a vaginal culture and it can be sent for both BV and trich and other bacteria to see exactly what you have.

Not usually: If a louse fell off on the seat and you immediately sat down and the louse attached, then yes. However, this would be very unlikely. This usually is sexually transmitted (close body contact) or through poor hygiene, contaminated clothing and unsavory living conditions.

How do you prepare for toilet training?

Dr. Laura Webb

Let child dictate: Children often begin to show interest in the bathroom between ages 2 and 3. Girls often times earlier than boys. When this happens make sure you talk about the bathroom, even bringing them in with you. Buy a small potty if you want and allow them to sit on it (its ok if their clothes are still on) to "practice." don't force it, just go with the flow and make it fun. Reward systems can be good.

: Age 2.: T 18 months, most toddlers are not yet showing signs that they are ready for toilet training. When toddlers report to parents that they have wet or soiled their diaper, they are starting to be aware that they prefer dryness. This is a good sign and you should praise your child.
