Honeymoon cystitis: Intercourse causes some of a woman's own bacteria to be pushed into her urethra were the can enter the bladder and multiply and cause cystitis.

Lowered function: While sexual potential can carry through into quite older age, the erectile capacity and ejacualate volume decrease with age. Some lose desire which is entirely psychological. Note the many products on the market for this and the destruction of endangered animals for this (rhino horns, bear gall bladder stones, etc.).

One day or one week: Since today is thursday i assume you have only been on medication for one day and it takes more time than that for symptoms to resolve. If you have been on medication for a week then you need to see the dr. Because you may have resistant organism to cipro (ciprofloxacin). That is not uncommon.

What helps women lise belly fat(pooch) quickly?

Dr. Francine Mosley
General Practice 20 years experience
Healthy takes time!: A belly doesn't develop a "pooch" overnight, and it won't go away overnight. If you have a pooch, for whatever reason, sit- or stand-up straight, suck-in your stomach to strengthen your belly muscles, trade water for soda pop and make good food choices. Your belly will look better.
