How do doctors tell if someone is not virgin? I'm virgin but my "cherry" popped while doing the splits and my gymnastics competition
Carefully: There is a thin membrane of tissue that is inside the vagina that is easily torn and can imdicate whether or not the vagina has been penetrated. A careful GYN exam can help with this. Just because the membrane is torn doesn't mean your not a virgin. The membrane can break during masturbation and a Pap smear, gymnastics I'm not sure about but can't say for sure. ...Read more

Child broke her arm in 1st grade, then again in 3rd grade. Now in the 8th grade and it's been over 3 years. Is it safe to try gymnastics or anything?
Possibly if your child is training too hard. At the Olympic level, training is such that these girls have delayed puberty, very low body fat and reduced puberty hormones which reduce growth, bone mass and possibly final adult height. However, limited research has yet to establish a cause- effect relationship between the two. Http://www. Ncbi. Nlm. Nih. Gov/pmc/articles/PMC3751410/

Exercise if you wish: There is no reason why you shouldn't do gymnastics if you have panic disorder. Physical activity does not necessarily worsen symptoms of anxiety. Don't misinterpret body sensations as signs of an impending panic attack. After the exercise you will feel more relaxed and it will help keep your mind off your worries. Panic disorder is not difficult to treat. Look for help and free yourself. ...Read more
Lately I have been hungry like every 2 hours. I'm 16 years old and I do gymnastics once a week...Could that be why?
Yes: It is common for active adolescents to have a pretty impressive appetite. As long as you are not gaining weight because of this, and otherwise feel well, I would not be too concerned about it. It is important, however, to still make good food choices (i.e. Choosing a serving of fruit over a bag of cheetos). ...Read more
I have gymnastics training 12 times/week, but can't keep up. Too tired. Is it ok to take caffeine pills to boost workout?
No: The goal is to do it all the natural way. Healthy, natural foods, drinks, and habits. Avoid pills, supplements, etc... unless there is a deficiency of something. Thus, one can see a primary care doctor to check for the cause of tiredness. That is to make sure there is not a medical problem, such as a sleep disorder (where one seems to be sleeping but is not resting his brain), or other issues. ...Read more
Hi, my friend would like to know if gymnastics affect her 7 year old son's height and prevent him from getting tall enough? Thanks.
Unlikely to be pbm: Exercise programs have little if any effect on eventual height. The projected height of a male is the average of his parents plus 5 cm. If he maintains a balanced nutrition, gets appropriate sleep and exercises he can achieve his expected height. Poor sleep, nutrition and health can reduce potential growth. ...Read more
