How many chewed cherry seeds can cause poisoning for a child if he chewed them?

How many chewed cherry seeds can cause poisoning for a child if he chewed them?

Hard to say: I would be more concerned about the child chocking on the seeds (or as we in the USA call them, pits) or in a very young child swallowing the pits it may cause an obstruction in the intestinal tract. Keep watch for abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting or unusual signs with this child. If any of these things become apparent take him/her to the hospital. ...Read more

How do you no if a guy poped your cherry?

Rupture of Hymen: That is difficult to tell without a physical exam. Typically females have a membrane at the introitus (entrance) of the vagina that incompletely covers the opening (though rarely it is imperforate). During intercourse this is commonly torn and leads to some hemorrhage, which is considered normal. It is impossible to tell from the whether that has happened to you or not. Please see your doctor. ...Read more

Is it possible to pop a girls cherry twice?

Not really: "popping the cherry" refers to the first intercourse with a virgin woman. This involves breaking through the membrane inside the vaginal entrance - the hymen which sometimes bleeds (the cherry). It is possible to partially break this, so a second time on intercourse might tear the rest and cause a little more bleeding. This would not be a second loss of virginity however. ...Read more

Losing virginity.: The hymen is a ring of tissue at the entrance to the vagina. Some girls who are very physically active even before puberty can disrupt the hymen; most commonly a female will have slight injury to this tissue during intercourse or intimate touching. This hymenal injury and subsequent bleeding has often been called "popping the cherry." ...Read more

Child protective svc: If you have concerns that your child is/has been sexually abused you need to contact child protective services and/or the police immediately. This is not something that you would be able to easily tell AND even after a few days if there was vaginal/hymenal trauma it will heal and MAY not even be detectable by the investigative physicians (who use colposcopy (which magnifies area) to do their exam) ...Read more

I just swallowed a cherry pit. Should I do anything about it? How long will it stay in my body?

I just swallowed a cherry pit. Should I do anything about it? How long will it stay in my body?

You should be fine: There is a lot of room for things to pass through our digestive tract, including cherry pits. Once it gets through your esophagus (that takes only a few minutes) it should pas through without noticing it. Well, maybe you will notice it in your stool. From mouth to toilet depends on how fast your digestion is but usually 8-24 hours is about right. ...Read more

How long do you bleed for when ur Cherry's popped? I have been bleeding for a couple hours on an off but heavy

Not long and not: Not heavy. Not all women bleed the first time they have vaginal sex, but if the hymen is torn, this can result in a small amount of bleeding. If the bleeding is more than a few drops such as heavy bleeding or lasts more than a few days then there could have been a deeper injury. Bleeding like a heavy period should be evaluated by a doctor preferably by your gyn. ...Read more

Ok so my girlfriend has said she popped her own cherry. It's been awhile and I heard the hymen can grow back is that true? I heard it was 6 months +

Not really: Some women are born without a noticeable "cherry" or hymen, others have a slight ridge, some are totally closed which creates problems at puberty. The hymen can be lost due to non sexual activities in childhood or adolescence. It can also be "popped" during self sex. Once torn, it does not grow back. ...Read more

Are cherries high in fiber?

Are cherries high in fiber?

Yes: One cup of raw, pitted sweet cherries provides 3.2 grams of fiber, qualifying it as a good source of dietary fiber. Cherries contain approximately twice as much insoluble fiber as soluble fiber. Insoluble fiber, which doesn’t dissolve in water but instead binds to it, promotes healthy bowels by adding bulk to stool and hastening the movement of material through the intestinal tract. ...Read more

How can you tell if you cherry has been popped?

How can you tell if you cherry has been popped?

Hmmm... cherries...: The "cherry is popped" is an ongoing myth. In the modern world, one should not be thinking of cherries (except the Bing, Ranier, and other varieties found at the farmers' market), and one should not be thinking of "popping cherries". So, a person is a virgin until he/she has sex for the first time. For a teen girl, after she starts having sex, it is really easy for her to get pregnant. ...Read more

What exactly does it mean to have your cherries popped?

Broken hymen: This refers to the tearing open of the hymen, a membrane partially across the vaginal opening during the first act of intercourse (loss of virginity). Usually this causes bleeding if the hymen is intact. Sometimes some previous non-sexual act can break this open and occasionally it is not present and there is no bleeding. "popping" is the expression for the penetration of the hymen. ...Read more
