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?

Highly unlikely: 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

If I need to use restroom on bus trip, should I wait till at restaurant or station or go on bus?

Bus, why not?: As a urologist, I always recommend frequent voiding to prevent urinary infections and promote bladder health.

Although many people despise public toilets, especially those that do not flush, the actual transmission of disease is exceedingly rare as long as you take care to clean your hands by washing, using cleansing gels, or wipes. ...Read more

I will be traveling by bus and I do not want to be snoring loudly. Are there any particular positions or things I can do?

Oral appliance: See your dentist about a snoring appliance. It protrudes the lower jaw and opens the airway behind the tongue. This reduces the velocity of the air going to and from the lungs and that can eliminate snoring. They have some over the counter devices in the drug store that can be made at home. ...Read more

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.

I am a school bus driver. I've been sick every month this year. Could the 2 be related or could I face a more serious problem? No other odd symptoms.

I am a school bus driver. I've been sick every month this year. Could the 2 be related or could I face a more serious problem? No other odd symptoms.

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. Many elementary teachers also become ill the first years they teach. But this is also a sign of weak immunity. A healthy diet (avoid sugar), quality multivitamin, Vit D & immune tonics like astragalus can help. See an integrative MD for advice. ...Read more
