Bacterial: Bartholin gland abscess are cause by multi bacteria, if they are not properly treated they may reccur. If this happens often then you might think about doing a marsupialization which opens up the gland for better drainage.

A 35-year-old member asked:

Is there a natural treatment for vaginal yeast infections, nail fungus and jock itch?

No effective ones: There are no truly natural treatments for yeast or fungal infections. Staying slim helps by having less moisture and heat in the skin folds of the groin and armpits, and by avoiding type 2 diabetes. Staying clean helps, such as showering after exercise. Treating fungal infections early, such as treating feet rashes, helps prevent toenail fungus. Eating yogurt with acidophilus may decrease candida.
A 42-year-old member asked:

I am a 42 yr old male, will going on peritoneal dialysis because of kidney failure affect my sex drive?

Probably: Unfortunately people with kidney failure almost universally complain of decreased sex drive and problems with erections. This is not as much due to dialysis, but the renal failure itself. Be open and honest with your doctor so they can help you through this. If they cannot, see a urologist or family medicine specialists who is used to helping people with this.

The more frequent dialysis you have, the less your sex life will be impacted. Remember that healthy kidneys work 24 hours a day, seven days a week!. Not just 3 sessions per week, as with in-center dialysis. You may want to investigate peritoneal dialysis or daily home hemodialysis (done about 5 days per week). Check out the wonderful book, "Help! I Need Dialysis" by Schatell and Agar. Good luck! LGromko MD

A 20-year-old female asked:

Unlikely.: The most fertile time of the month is about 2 weeks from the start of your period assuming that you have a period every 28 days. If your periods are shorter than 28 days, it is possible that you could have hit the fertile time. You will have to wait until you miss your period to get a pregnancy test. There is no way to tell if you are pregnant where you are in your cycle now.

Do pregnancy test: No one can tell you for sure based on the info provided. Do a pregnancy test and if negative, do another one in 2 weeks unless you start your period.

Spotting is common: Spotting is very common in the first few weeks after you start taking Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) injections. It is expected to resolve in coming months. If it does not resolve then you should see your gynecologist for examination.
