Hormonal imbalance: You need to check a pregnancy test. If it is negative then you are bleeding from being in an anovulatory state where there is an imbalance of the two hormones. This can be a residual effect of the depo-provera and your gynecologist can correct it.For more info www.Askyourgynecologist.Org.

Does an ear discharge mean my baby has an ear infection?

Dr. Ruben Rucoba
Pediatrics 32 years experience
Usually: Most episodes of true ear discharge (pus or blood) represent an infection of the middle ear, commonly referred to as an ear infection. The discharge is coming from either a ruptured ear drum or a surgically placed ear tube. Ear discharge may also represent what is commonly called a "swimmer's ear, " or inflammation of the ear canal, which can be caused by cotton swabs, water or a foreign object.

How likely is it for a man to contract chlamydia by receiving oral sex from a woman?

Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
Mouth to penis CPR?: It is unlikely to transmit chlamydia unless the woman's mouth is already infected. In that case, it could produce a reaction(cpr). The mouth is rife with bacteria as opposed to the "cleaner" vagina, so before one "biblically knows" a partner, it is a great idea to know your partner well and remain monogamous.
