Difference between auto erotic asphyxilation and cross leg orgasm by holding breadth?

Difference between auto erotic asphyxilation and cross leg orgasm by holding breadth?

Sex practices: Auto erotic asphyxiation usually entails some external, mechanical means of preventing breathing. Very dangerous. Cross leg orgasm by holding breath can cause similar sensation (less oxygen to brain leading to euphoria sensation) combined with orgasm can certainly heighten the sensation. Much safer also as you can always breath when you want. It you pass out, ok...you will breath again. ...Read more

Pros/cons of c-section vs. assisted vaginal delivery? Baby persistently locked in posterior position, estimated 8lbs+.

Pros/cons of c-section vs. assisted vaginal delivery? Baby persistently locked in posterior position, estimated 8lbs+.

Depends: That is a decision that would need to be made in the moment. Many women can deliver vaginally with no problem from the occiput posterior position. If the baby can not be delivered with pushing then options of forceps, vacuum and c section should be considered. The size of the baby, the shape of the pelvis, the position of head and the experience of the doctor are all important considerations ...Read more

My baby died in womb at 40 weeks + 4 days. No umbrical cord wrapping or placenta seperation. Does cephalo pelvic disproportion cause death. ?

My baby died in womb at 40 weeks + 4 days. No umbrical cord wrapping or placenta seperation. Does cephalo pelvic disproportion cause death. ?

Sorry for your loss: Tragically, many fetal deaths after 40 weeks remain unexplained. Cpd means that the baby gets "stuck" after a very prolonged labor. If your baby died before labor started, then it wasn't cpd. If you decide to have another child, give yourself enough time to grieve and heal, and then work closely with a perinatologist (high risk OB specialist) who can do extra specialized testing and monitor well. ...Read more

Is air coming out of vagina after childbirth dangerous?

Is air coming out of vagina after childbirth dangerous?

Probably not: You need to see your provider to be sure. If you are talking about right after childbirth, the vagina was open and especially if you had a repair, may have some air that is coming out. If it has been a while (more than a few days), you may have a hole between your rectum and your vagina, which would need to be fixed at some point (sometimes we wait a few months to see if it will heal). ...Read more

Can a baby die from congenital diaphragmatic hernia?

Can  a baby  die from congenital diaphragmatic hernia?

Yes : If the hernia is large enough to allow the abdominal organs to go in i the chest during development, they can physically prevent the lung from developing. In its most severe case, rapid death due to inability to get oxygen in to the system can occur immediately after delivery. It is important to understand however that this is not the case for all hernias. See a pediatric surgeon for your details. ...Read more

Baby w/ helmet rolled out of laundry basket onto the tile floor, landed on her face, has fat lip, bleeding lip stopped she seems ok. Brain injury? Er?

Difficult question: Difficult question due to knot enough facts known. It is always safest to have a baby with concern of a head injury to be assessed at er. That being said, no loss of consciousness, no vomiting, did not hit head, more than likely okay. However, if prior bleed or head injury, this increases chances of further injury. Difficult for us to say from this side of the computer, but safe is better. ...Read more

Can oxygen deprivation from wearing a very tight neck tie cause permanent brain damage? I recently wore a very tight tie for 24 hours straight because I fell  asleep on a couch. Also, can holding your breath cause permanent brain damage?

Very unlikely: Although you were wearing a tight tie, I seriously doubt you were at risk of strangulation. Holding your breath might cause you to faint, but I doubt you could cause brain damage that way either. However, I wonder about the source of your concerns. Could you benefit from some counseling? Let us know. ...Read more
