Doctor insights on:
My end of my penis touched a public toilet seat at a bus station. I'm not sure if was there blood. Will I get aids or any other std's?
Despite the conventional wisdom about public toilets, someone with intact skin and in normal health should not acquire an infection from passing contact. That being said I would not try to test this concept intentionally.
If accidental contact occurs, washing then and there with soap and plenty of water is the best mode of action. ...Read more

As a urologist, I always recommend frequent voiding to prevent urinary infections and promote bladder health.

Wife 3.5 months prgnt and we r trvl to a diff country. It's a well planned trip but involves trvl in bus, train n flight. Is it ok to trvl. 3 ppl trvlg?
Yes, definitely: The biggest worry with travel and pregnancy is that a woman is at slightly increased risk of blood clot. Ways to prevent that are: 1) drink a lot of water; 2) ambulate frequently if she can. Get up, walk around. There are also leg exercises she can do to help move the blood that might pool in her legs back to her heart. She can do these while sitting. I also recommend compression stockings. ...Read more

How does bus par work differently than lexapro, (escitalopram) and why would one work and the other not?
Diff neurotranmitter: The exact mechanism of action of Buspar (buspirone) is unknown but it does react to serotonin & dopamine receptors. Lexapro (escitalopram) is better understood to be a SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor) meaning it inhibits the nerve cells reuptake of serotonin allowing more to circulate. It has little effect on dopamine. Each person's inherent brain chemistry determines which meds work. ...Read more

Sick in what way?: If you mean you've had colds or coughs every month it's probably related to the fact that as a school bus driver you are being exposed to lots of viruses.
