Urgency: The sensation of "needing to go" to urinate is termed urgency. Although dietary intake of caffeine, spicy foods, some artificial sweeteners, acidic foods, and certain vitamin complexes can sometimes increase urgency, a urinary tract infection is also a possibility. If you have a history of kidney stones, one in the kidney tube near the bladder can also cause urgency. Best to see your doctor.

Unpleasant question about going to toilet? Do all bms smell like cattle if vegan?

Least of ur worries: About four percent of incoming medical students profess to be vegetarians; almost none are by the time of graduation -- they realize they were deceived. The dangers of both a vegetarian and a strict vegan diet are as great as, though different from, the junk-food obesogenic diet; both ruin people's health. If you must be a vegetarian, get scientific help on the supplements, and good luck.

What are alternative ways to relieve sexual desire besides masturbation?

Dr. Pamela Pappas
Psychiatry 42 years experience
The most obvious: The most obvious way to relieve sexual desire besides masturbation, is to have sex with a willing partner. Sometimes sexual desire can become compulsive though, relating more to obsessive anxiety than to genuine sexual desire. If you're wondering about your own situation, consulting with your family physician or a psychiatrist may help.

Can you catch aids from public toilet?

Dr. Joram Seggev
Specializes in Allergy and Immunology
Unlikely: It is not impossible, but is very unlikely that you will catch anything from a toilet. Most people who claim that they were infected with an STI in a restroom say so to avoid telling the true cause (having had sex).

No: Masturbation is a normal animal activity. There are no health reasons to masturbate or not to masturbate. It doesn't make you more or less manly.
